You know, I'll say one thing about the raging feud between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga…at least the ladies aren't petty. When they argue, their beef has actual substance which makes it a little easier to relate to and understand. I mean, if they were bickering about hospital visitation timelines give or take thirty-two hours or gym turf as if they were the Sharks and Jets, I doubt I'd be able to keep watching Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm sure y'all feel the same!
After Teresaexplained herself in her Bravo blog, Melissa gets a turn. We're all for an equal opportunity snarkfest here at RT! In her blog, Melissa explains that she can't remember her days of the week while adding that her husband's parents weren't upset about how long it took for her to visit her ICU ridden father-in-law.
I believe Melissa when she says they were happy for a visit and not concerned about when it actually happened. However, do I think she should have made her best efforts to get there sooner? Yes. I also think that Teresa beating the visitation timeline to death is as eye-roll worthy as a frazzled Melissa lying about when she actually went. But hey, at least it's entertaining! Right? It is, right…?
Not surprisingly, this week's People has dedicated its cover to the "Delivery Room Drama" surrounding America's baby. Yes, I realize Kanye West said his daughter wouldn't be America's baby, but it's just so flipping funny. Here's the thing…was it really super dramatic?
Now, I realize that giving birth prematurely is no joke, but can I just throw out a conspiracy theory that her due date may have been misconstrued? Mind you, it's not a theory I was smart enough to concoct on my own, but I jumped right onboard. Can't you just picture Kris Jenner pressuring daughter Kim Kardashian into giving the press an earlier due date? "But Kim, just think about all the attention you'll get when you go into premature labor?" In my head, the conversation takes place in the back of a limo with blacked out windows…just like this one (an oldie but a goodie, of course!). It wouldn't be the first time the family fibbed..
But again, that's my bishy, trash-loving brain talking. Obviously, regardless of her true due date, I am happy that mother and baby are healthy.
Not surprisingly, the Kardashians are proving time and time again that they are A LOT to keep up with…especially with Kim and Kanye West's new addition. Throw in mom Kris Jenner's uncontrollable need to pimp out anyone with her DNA, and you've got a veritable rodeo of gossip to whet your appetite!
According to Radar Online, Kris has been hinting non-stop that Kimye, Jr. may make her television debut…not on Keeping up with the Kardashians, but on the pimp momager's new daytime talk show. An insider said that Kris basically urged viewers “to tune into her new talk show to get all the inside scoop about Kim’s newborn baby," adding, "When someone asked Kris if the baby would make an appearance on the show, she demurely said ‘you will have to watch.'"
The same source reveals, “Kris was asked if she had any pictures of the baby, and she revealed she did, but didn’t want share with anyone. Kris was absolutely loving all of the attention she was getting, and was absolutely milking it."
Gahhh! I hate, hate, HATE to admit it, but I missed the craziness that only Abby Lee Miller and her nemesis mothers can bring to Dance Moms. As much as I usually deplore their awful behavior, it's ten times better than watching a show centered around the snooze-worthy Candy Apples. Who's with me? I know, I know. I'm a total hypocrite.
Abby is in Los Angeles looking for property for a new studio space. She plans to install silks (the mounted scarf like apparatus for lyrical dancers…think Cirque) so that her new dancers can have a leg up on competitors. Abby is really thinking of a permanent move, and she's convinced that Melissa would make sure that Maddie and MacKenzie followed her West. As for her other dancers…who needs 'em? She's already setting the stage for next season's Dance Moms: L.A. Help us!
I am not going to say anything negative about her children (or anyone's for that matter), as I think the girls are equally adorable and hilarious. G-to-the-I-A may be the most mature person on the entire show. It's been fun to watch her grow up into such a sweet young lady. That said, Wendy Williams has no qualms about talking smack about Teresa's kids. Yikes!
Teresa also addresses her fans on all things family and loyalty and respect and lather, rinse, repeat. Let's get some new material please!
While she's not filming her talk show, Bethenny still interacts with her fans the way any normal celeb does…thank you, Twitter! The Bravo diva has tried to converse with her followers lately about the state of her hormones–and her thoughts on walking down the aisle again!
I'll be honest. I have been actively trying to connect with these couples to no avail. There was so much bickering and pettiness. However, last night's Newlyweds: The First Year actually made me feel for the couples (it's about time given that the finale is next week!). I celebrated their successes, and I was upset about their hardships. Tina Sugandh and Tarz Ludwigsen suffer through a traumatic event, and they grow closer thanks to Tina's dad's ridiculous new girlfriend. Blair Late is concerned about how active Jeff Pedersen's solo sex life is, while Kim and Alaska Gedeon actually get along. He's even quite charming! I know. I couldn't believe it either. Kathryn Bougadis and John Lagoudesimpatiently wait (and wait and wait and wait) for the birth of their son.
After being excited about her cycle being late, a teary Tina reveals to her mother-in-law that she suffered a miscarriage. It's heartbreaking to hear her say she's not fit to carry a child. Tarz's mom reminds Tina to look at this as an isolated incident. She doesn't want her daughter-in-law to jump to conclusions with no medical information to back up her worries.
Sometimes I just want to give Royce Reed a high five. Sure, she's been unlucky in love and she got fired from Basketball Wives, but she always keeps things real…especially when she's dealing with former co-star Evelyn Lozada. She doesn't back down, does she?
Recently, Evelyn has told any media outlet that would listen that she's learning to be a better, more peaceful person. She even went on Iyanla Vanzant's "Fix My Life" last September where she told the self-help guru that she's working towards becoming a woman of God. Of course, that sentiment flew out the window last week when Evelyn resurrected her favorite phrase in an interview with Upscale calling Royce a non-m-effing-factor.
