Unlike other Real Housewives who need to pop Xanax and bring along a barrel of wine to get through the reunion taping, Kristen Taekman looked forward to the Real Housewives of New York reunion! Kristen shares her thoughts on Part 1 in her new blog, dishing on the Luann/Carole/Adam tension, Bethenny Frankel’s party snub, and so much more!
Kristen starts out, “It’s that time of year again! Reunion. Every ‘Wives’ chance to settle arguments and hash things out once and for all. Unsurprisingly, I dread reunions. For me, some things should just be left in the past. However, this year, I was looking forward to the reunion. This season, friendships were created and broken and there was a ton of unresolved issues leading up to it.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is going to be a whole new ballgame next season. There are a so many new faces and a lot of recycled faces coming on board for this sure-to-be-drama-filled season that we can barely keep track of the guest list anymore! Most of them turned out Monday night for the kick off of Kenya Moore’s latest business venture – a hair care line, which was filmed for the show, of course.
Among those in attendance: Kenya Moore (with a new beau??!), Marlo Hampton, Sheree Whitfield, newbieAmiyah Scott, newbie Kim Fields, returning cast Porsha Williams, Phaedra Parks, and Kandi Burruss, showing off her adorable baby bump. Also returning – at least for a hello – is Claudia Jordan! She was rumored to have been dumped for the new season, but she was in attendance for filming and it wasn’t just as Kenya’s guest (if you’ll remember, she opened up attendance to fans on Instagram, too), as Claudia claims she was mic’ed. “They told me to go in and say hello and I was mic’d. It was waAAAAAY too many people in the scene.” She added that “it was HOT as hell in there! We left early.”
Althea and Benzino went back and forth last night, and then tried to delete the mess, but you can’t erase the internet. Althea started off by accusing Benzino of treating her bad, which set him off and they spiraled from there.
Brielle Biermann didn’t just inherit her mom’s looks, she also inherited her sense of humor. Kim Zolciak’s eldest daughter is taking a moment out of her family’s hectic Don’t Be Tardy promotional schedule to give her mom a little crap.
Everyone on Twitter has been posting the “Straight Outta” pics in promotion of the release of the movie “Straight Outta Compton.” Brielle took it one further and instead of posting their city of origin – she poked fun at her reproducing mom! Brielle stamped a family photo from her graduation carnival with a hilarious “Straight Outta Condoms.” Kim responded to the Tweet, “Soooo my daughter @briellebiermann thinks she is funny #IDidLaugh #AllInGoodFun #SenseOfHumor #KashWasSleeping.”
It’s that time again: trivia night! Brush up on your Atlanta knowledge, as Travis and crew have decided on Vanderpump Rules as the theme of tonight’s game. The fun starts at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST.
Disclaimer: This is a fun community game that is organized by our commenters. It’s just a fun way to test your reality TV knowledge and pass the time with your fellow reality TV fans on a Friday (or Saturday) night. If you don’t like it, move along to a different post and don’t play…simple as that. In other words, don’t email with complaints, protests and the like if you don’t agree with or enjoy any piece of the game. Comment policy still applies.
See below for a note from Travis on how the game will be scored:
In the video clip, the cast starts out chatting with Andy about which other RH show they’d like to join because when he asked RHOBH stars about it, they all said New York. (Bethenny Frankel wants to go to Atlanta for a HW swap) Then they shared which Housewives they’d love to bring on their show. Dorinda says Brandi, Luann would bring Lisa in and Sonja says Kyle. Andy turns the Brandi talk to Kristen , who is BFFs with Brandi. He comments that Brandi had a very rough season on Beverly Hills. Andy asks if there’s anything Kristen would like to say in Brandi’s defense; does Kristen think Brandi was misrepresented? “I definitely think she was misrepresented [last season on RHOBH]. I think that she’s going through a very hard time, and continues to, like many of the women on this cast have been going through some rough times.”
Vicki doesn’t spend a lot of time on social media, but she took a few moments to address questions and comments from followers this week. When a show fan asked Vicki how she could be with Brooks “knowing” that he’s faking cancer, Vicki lashed back. “HE is NOT faking cancer….it’s a fake story that the girls made up. I have lost 3 friends to cancer and my Aunt. It’s a TV show.”
Among the attendees: Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd, who posed on the red carpet with Giggy and Giggy’s dad. Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna and new cast memberErika Jayne skipped the red carpet arrivals, but Camille Grammer was on it, along with Lance Bass and husband Michael. Gretchen shared the photo above of the ladies behind the scenes.
