Bringing you some news and gossip about the House Husbands of Hollywood. The Fox reality network show follows the lives of five men who happen to be househusbands. You can read more about the cast here.
Grant Reynolds – Aspiring actor and husband of “Good Day LA” anchor Jillian Reynolds. Jillian and Grant are currently expecting their second child, a boy. A photo of a very pregnant Jillian is below.
Darryl M. Bell – The former star of A Different World has been with girlfriend Tempest Bledsoe for 16 years. Tempest starred on The Cosby Show for years. In an interview with ET, the couple believes their relationship works because they are “very compatible.” They also have no plans to get married, though they are pro-marriage.
Danny Barclay – Aspiring actor Danny is married to Katherine Barclay who is described as a “high-powered attorney.” It’s been reported that Katherine works for a powerful law firm than only accepts the top 1% of law school graduates. She practices under her maiden name to allow her some privacy. Danny also seems to be getting some acting gigs lately as shown on his IMDB actor’s page.
My thoughts on the show – Househusbandsis one of those shows I had not planned on watching until I got hooked during a marathon. It’s a pretty decent show. It doesn’t have the drama factor as Bravo’s housewives’ series, but it is nonetheless entertaining to watch, as seeing life from the men’s prospectives is sometimes humorous.
I noticed some viewers are giving Jillian Barberie Reynolds a hard time, but I actually see things differently when it comes to Grant and Jillian. Grant seems to have a superior passive aggressive way about him while Jillian seems more laid back and wanting to avoid conflict. Grant’s behavior at the couple’s dinner party was a bit telling and unnecessary. He seems a bit controlling and tends to overact to the “little things.” He also needs to learn how to let things go, the way he went on and on and on and on about Jillian’s spending was draining to watch. He might have had a valid point but went about it the wrong way. I’m surprised these two are having another baby instead of heading to divorce court. They need a lot of help/counseling for their marriage to work. They seem very mismatched and sometimes act like they genuinely do not like each other.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Nene talks about her goal to have a talk show, her relationship with the ladies of Atlanta housewives and what she thinks about the song “Tardy for the Party.”
Below are excerpts from the interview-
What’s your relationship with Kim and Sheree like these days?
We’re just associates. I feel we have a business relationship. However, Sheree and I have known each other the longest and we’ve found a way to respect one another. And Kim and I just haven’t found that yet. And if Kim and I weren’t on the show together, we probably would never talk. But we’re on the show, so we have to talk and we have to be cordial, so we’re cordial. But I’m not friends with any of these girls. They’re my associates, and I don’t think that the word “associate” is a bad word. Some people don’t even get to be my associate, so they’re in a very good position.
So you’re not friends with anyone in the cast?
Down the road with some time, Lisa and I could possibly be friends. I don’t really know Kandi at all but I won’t close the door on that. I’m just saying I don’t know her because she’s new to the show. We didn’t get a chance to really get to know each other. She came into our relationship. I feel like I’m the HBIC [head b-- in charge] if you know what that is.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians’sKhloe Kardashian, 25, is set to get married within the next 2 weeks!
People magazine reports Khloe and her boyfriend, L.A. Lakers forward Lamar Odom, 29, are currently planning their wedding. The couple has only been dating for a month.
Usweekly takes the story a step further, by revealing the couple will be married within the next 2 weeks. According to Khloe their “source,” the duo is “hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon.”
Earlier this month, the Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami star’s older sister Kim Kardashian told PEOPLE of the couple, “They’re very, very happy. They’ve been together a few weeks, and are literally inseparable. Khloe thinks he’s amazing and makes her laugh and smile constantly.”
Marrying someone after only dating them a month is always a great idea. I’m guessing Khloe was starting to feel left out, since her oldest sister Kourtney was garnering all the media attention lately for her unplanned pregnancy.
Good luck to the couple, we’ll be sure to bring you further news of their actual wedding and likely divorce within the next 2 weeks.
The photos were shot by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Nene Leakesplayed the role of a mother and a stripper – a role she’s all too well familiar with, as she has admitted to being a stripper in the past.
Kim Zolciak’s alter ego had her playing a mistress and stepford wife. Kim has however denied wanting to play a mistress, claiming she was under the impression she would be playing a different role, and would have never agreed to play a mistress. Nene however insists it was Kim’s idea to play a mistress.
I thought Sheree and Kandi had the best photos. Photos are courtesy of Dblanks.com.
Audrina however denies this report, saying “They offered me a presenting spot and I declined.”
And what does Kristin think of her new promo proclaiming her devilishly laughing in front of a sign that proclaims, “The Bitch Is Back”?
“It’s fun to play the bad girl on TV,” Kristin says. “I think it’s really funny because anyone who knows me, my good friends, would never say I’m a man-eater, a boyfriend-stealer like they’re making me out to be.”
Kristin however admits she is not friends with Audrina, “We literally just don’t see each other,” she toldUS. “I don’t have a problem with her. If she has a problem with me, that’s a whole other story.”
Kristin— who made her reality show debut at age 16 on MTV’s Laguna Beach — also says it’s fun to be back in front of the cameras.
“It’s been such a great experience for me and brought me so many opportunities,” says Kristin. “I definitely have a personal life. I only film three days a week, so I don’t put my real friends on camera because it will ruin friendships.”
It seems like both JonandKate Gosselin enjoy being in the tabloids. The he-said she-said conflict between Jon and Kate continues and there is no sign of it ending anytime soon. After Kate appeared on The View as a guest host, she gave an ambiguous answer about Jon allowing girlfriend, Hailey Glassman to meet their eight kids. Jon is now responding in the media, and denies any claims of Hailey ever meeting the kids.
“I’ve never brought Hailey to meet the kids,” he tells E! News, “nor do I plan on doing that anytime soon.”
Similarly, Hailey denied the rumors on her Twitter page, writing “I was never at Jon and Katezilla’s house nor did I meet the children, And nor am I in a rush to… When the truth finally comes out, the public owes Jon and I a HUGE apology, until then keep hating n being blinded, Bunch of Helen Keller’s.”
BTW: Because Helen Keller was known for being such a “hater.“
A source close to both Jon and Hailey tells E! that Jon asked Kate where she’d heard about the “Hailey-meets-kids scenario”. Kate responded that she saw it “in the tabloids.” The source added, Jon will consider introducing the kids to Hailey “at the appropriate time” once the divorce is finalized.
“We were just having fun,” NeNe toldRadarOnline exclusively at a signing for her bookNever Make The Same Mistake Twice at the Eso Won Bookstore in L.A. “Kim said I went too far, but for me it was just about having fun.”
“It’s very hard for me to be friends with someone who is not a real friend,” NeNe said. “If it wasn’t for our interaction on the show, we would have nothing to say to each other.”
In NeNe’s book, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, she writes about her cast mates- the falling out she had with Sheree, who she says she has known for years. “I never expected to have the falling out with her that I did and on national television,” she writes.
NeNe says, though their lives are taped, certain aspects are off limits. “The master bedroom!” she jokes, before adding, “no, my husband is a very private person and that room is where we relax.”
