On tonight’s Southern Charm, Kathryn Dennis got a chance to sit down with Craig Conoverto explain the changes in her custody arrangement. Up until now, fans have heard ad nauseam that Thomas has full custody, and Kathryn has no access to Kensie (Kensington Calhoun Ravenel) and Saint (St. Julien Rembert Ravenel). But tonight, we learned that all of that changed back in the early fall, despite quotes in the press to the contrary about Kathryn not having any custody of the children.
And even Thomas admitted, albeit just to Whitney Sudler-Smith, that Kathryn indeed had passed her test, and was seeing the kids once again. But for all of his claims that he wants Kathryn back in the lives of the kids, it sure doesn’t seem that way. Episode one of Southern Charm, season 4 featured Thomas Ravenel telling everyone that Kathryn was refusing to take a drug test because she knew she would fail, yet when she passes, and gets the kids back, he only tells Whitney, who seems as if he could care less about Kathryn and the kids. Truthfully, Whitney seems as if he would rather not be on Southern Charm at all.
Now that Naomie Olindo and Craig Conover are such a solid couple, she is bigger part of Southern Charm and I’m into it. So far, she’s not involved in the drama, but she provides some interesting perspective.
Naomie explained why the cast targets Craig and the disconnect between Craig and Shep Rose. She defended Kathryn Dennis as a parent. She also tried to make sense of Landon Clements… which is quite the task.
Before the scary weekend spent in the hospital with her son, Kim Zolciak was a guest on The Real, which aired today. Kim sets the record straight on the rumors of daughter Brielle Biermann getting butt implants and also addresses her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s not a done deal just yet, despite reports stating otherwise! She also shares what we can expect this season on Don’t Be Tardy – she teases there’s something big going on!
On returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim explains, “I’m in talks, but I don’t want to come back full time. I have Don’t Be Tardy, so why would I want to do that? I would do both.” She explains that full time would mean “the whole season, reunion. No.”
When asked if she’d like to just do guest appearances here and there, she says, “a few of them. Listen, they pay, so…. I got six kids to feed, honey. I’m not dumb.”
If I was on Vanderpump Rules, I would go on vacation as soon as the last reunion episode aired (and it seems most of the cast HAS done just that). It has to be so exhausting to turn up and argue with your friends (and frienemies), rehash all of the drama when the episodes air, and discuss it all again at the reunion. That’s why I don’t blame Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright for escaping West Hollywood and visiting his family in Florida.
I know that Jax and Brittany filmed their spin-off series in Kentucky with her family, but I really wish there were some cameras around when they were with Jax’s family. I cannot be the only one who wants to see what it’s like to be Jax’s parents and sister. I would love to see how they deal with him being such an infamous reality star.
Even though Tom Sandovaland James Kennedy both dated Kristen Douteand hated each other for a season and a half of Vanderpump Rules, they are way past that now and they are actually boys. I stopped trying to figure out the boundaries within this cast because that’s just a lot easier.
These two united to defend Lala Kentagainst the “mean girls” in the cast. And of course, they both had some comments to make about Kristen. Tom revealed which moment at the reunion made him tear up and James admits (again) that he used Kristen.
That’s why Andy Cohen had no choice but to poll the Watch What Happens Live viewers last night to ask “Is Ashley stirring the pot or is she being a concerned friend?” It didn’t really seem like she was “concerned” when she pushed Charrisse to introduce her to Eddie Jordan at their daughter’s sweet sixteen even though they weren’t on speaking terms. It also didn’t come across as “concern” when Ashley brought up Eddie’s presence at the party during a group hang at the hookah bar, but Ashley has a different view on her behavior.
This Real Housewives of New York season has been a tough one for me to watch. All of the nastiness between my two favorites Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley made me uncomfortable. These are the two funniest ladies on the show. It has been killing me to see them talking shit about each other and arguing in the previews for upcoming episodes.
Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel: these two are on speaking terms again and are back to getting along well. They actually did a joint interview together. Even if this season continues to be rough between them, I have some hope. Yet, at the same time, I’m hoping that some footage doesn’t air to reignite their feud. Typically, I don’t mind the Real Housewives drama, but these are two people that I want to see getting along. I need them bringing the comic relief and the meme-worthy quotes.
