Happy Friday! Let’s kick this morning off with some more photos from Melissa Gorga’s fashion show! More event pics are trickling in and showing that nearly the whole cast was in attendance – except for Jacqueline Laurita.
Lisa Rinna is on the defense, and rightly so.The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been left holding the bag in the whole Yolanda Foster’s Friends Question Her Lyme Disease debacle. She took to her Bravo blog to straighten the viewers out on a number of things – the Munchausen mess, the Lisa Vanderpump mess and more.
Lisa starts out explaining once again that she didn’t say that Yolanda Foster had Munchausen, but once she dipped her toe into the Lyme controversy, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards left her holding the bag. The flaming bag of shit. “This whole situation is not black and white, it’s very gray, and yes, there were speculations, questions and concerns among all of us. LVP and Kyle certainly played their part in questioning Yolanda’s illness and the motives for her Instagram posts, and I felt once I said Munchausen they both back-tracked and let me just take all the sh– for it, which I did. And I own that. But that’s all it was, a conversation. Not a diagnosis or a label as none of us is a doctor.”
Briana, who is reportedly five months along already, is expecting a baby with her husband Matt Ericson. This will be Briana’s second child and Matt’s third. He has two sons from a previous relationship and Briana has a daughter, Leiana, with ex-husband Leif Manson.
More about the pregnancy announcement will be coming in the recap of last night’s show. Stay tuned.
And that’s a wrap! Tonight was reportedly the taping of the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, with Melissa Gorga’s fashion show serving as the backdrop. Melissa sold tickets for the Envy Fashion Show to her fans and followers, which was held at Macaluso’s in Hawthorne, New Jersey. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Deborah Hospital Foundation.
With just one more episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion left to go, we are saying goodbye to Kim Fields. Kim confirmed this week past week that she won’t be returning for a second season of the reality show. Rumor has it that it wasn’t the cast that drove her away, but poor treatment by Bravo?!
Page Six reported that Kim is floored over the positive way she’s being treated over at ABC on Dancing with the Stars because things were reportedly not so good on RHOA. “They treated her awful. Once she got a taste of how one should be treated, and that would be how ABC is treating her, she’s like, ‘Screw this s–t, man!’ She’s very happy on ‘Dancing,’ doing well.”
The avid baker and reality star explained why she took on this new role. “New Jerseyans are deeply rooted family. I was born here, spent my entire life here and have raised my own children here. My family inspires me in everything I do especially when it comes to my business choices, which is why I’m proud to have partnered with Pala Interactive on PalaBingoUSA.com. They have developed a real, true community built around the fun and excitement of bingo. I’ve always had fond memories of playing bingo with my family and friends; so when Pala approached me with this opportunity, it made sense to work with them on this exciting new online experience.”
Ariana Madix has had a weird season on Vanderpump Rules and I’m sure she’s glad to put this one behind her and hopefully move on to better one next time. She shared her thoughts on part 2 of the reunion – including her current friendship status with Scheana Marie, why she thinks Stassi Schroeder came back to the show and more.
On why Ariana feels this cast is so toxic, “The poisonous gossip that occurs regularly within this group of people will suck your soul dry if you let it. Gossip and feeding off of other people’s shortcomings is an addictive thing, but it makes me feel horrible about the life I’m living. I’ve been a witness to it, a participant in it, and a victim of it. It feels like an endless cycle of hurting and forgiving each other.”
