To kick off the day, Lea was given the key to the city of Miami Beach by the mayor and the day (October 25th) was named for her! Lea Tweeted, “Oct 25 just named Lea Black day in city of #MiamiBeach by mayor @MayorLevine what a surprise!” This year Lea went big for the 20th anniversary of the event and managed to reel in Aretha Franklin for the charity fundraiser’s headlining entertainment!
On this episode of Manzo’d With Children, it looks like a typical summer day in the Manzo household with Albie and Christopher practicing their chip shot in the backyard and Lauren moping around them. Caroline decides to drop the bomb that they are heading to good ole Austin Texas next week to do some research on BBQ sauce. It’s the last family vacay before Lauren gets married and Caroline wants to make sure her bbq sauce is competitive with other brands out there before it hits the shelves. The whole family is on board and this should be fun!
As they’re packing their stuff up, we learn Albie and Christopher’s dog died last Christmas and the last memory they have is of him peeing on their luggage. Gross. Across the hallway, Lauren is packing stilettos and might want to throw in some gym shoes because you know, Texas has dirt. Good God. Christopher is eager to get to Texas and experience some authentic Texas goodies (gun fights, big hair, etc.). While I appreciate their stabs at humor, it’s just very Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie-esque and not funny at all. Meanwhile, we learn Abie is now not eating meat and it’s apparently huge drama as Texas might not have any white meat for him. Oiy!
Albie Manzo and Chris Manzoare having their friends over for a casual night of cards and fun. In true high school fashion, Caroline interrupts the party the party in the basement to tell the boys to keep it down. Brittney is among the guests and Caroline compliments on her top (which happens to consist of a peach-colored Kleenex and some dental floss (bonus: it has pockets!) on her way out. Caroline is a tad concerned as Brit-Brit is showing her face more often than she expected.
On last night’s My Five Wives, Brady Williams comes up with a not-so-bright idea, becomes a grandpa, and celebrates Father’s Day with his 24 kids.
It’s another fine day at the polygamous compound, and Brady leaps out of Robyn’s bed to start the day by visiting each of his other wives for his “good morning” routine. Rosemary is feeling down and out. Noniereminds us that she is still trying for another baby, while Paulie is empty-nesting it and keeping up with her running. All of the wives, and Brady, are feeling like they’re not getting enough time with each other. Brady says his main challenge is “being fair with his time.” I thought his biggest challenge was bankrolling the lives of 29 dependents?
Dina Manzo was a guest on Watch What Happens Live tonight after part 1 of the lost footage episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It was fairly uneventful but Andy did shed a little light on what we can expect to hear from Dina at the reunion – like addressing her family issues once and for all.
Andy jumped right in, “You were more verbal about your family situation at the jersey reunion than I’ve heard you be – ever.” Dina responded, “Because I’ve kept my mouth shut all these years and that didn’t help, so I thought maybe if I talk this will go away.”
Andy tried to ask about her relationship with Caroline because it seems to Andy like that Dina sounded hopeful that it could be mended. Dina laughs, “Do you ask Caroline these questions when she’s on?” He confirms, “I do!” He added that Dina made it seem at the reunion like there’s a resolution with Caroline in the future. Dina replies, “Yeah, she’s my sister.”
Kim Kardashian works so hard y’all! The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was working the late shift last night at TAO in Las Vegas. She had to smile and pose for pictures and stand by a free cake and all they paid her was a paltry $500,000! Man, it’s SO HARD being Kim. Although this $500K was probably a little easier made than that one time she got paid half a million for a date with a creepy old guy and it was a “disaster.”
Kim and her cleavage hung out with some peasants and a few groupies (aka Jonathan Cheban) to celebrate her 34th birthday which was actually earlier this week. Also hanging out with the birthday girl: hubby Kanye West (who is actually SMILING in one photo!), momager Kris Jenner and sister Khloe. Check out Kim’s cake and other pics from the event down below.
Sidenote: I do give Kim a little credit for not having a full on panic attack when SEAS of people like that are waiting to see her (see photo in gallery). That would freak me right out. But at $500,000 I could probably afford a Xanax or two….
Last night Life & Style held a party to celebrate their 10th anniversary and a slew of reality stars – past and present- turned out for the event.
The most shocking former celeb to see in attendance is the now-sort-of-reclusive Heidi Montag! And the biggest shock was that she’s almost looking like her old self again! Heidi reunited with some of her old Hills crew – Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari.
