Who knew? It seems that Tamra Barney may have had her best year yet! The Real Housewives of Orange County star managed to come out of this season looking not too shabby compared to past seasons. Even as her normal two-faced mean girl self, Tamra seemed to be…dare I say it?…genuine and slightly relatable.
She got married to Eddie Judge (and a coveted spin-off!) and opened a business. Tamra managed to mature a little bit and rekindle some old frienemieships while being somewhat nice to those to whom she'd once (or thrice) treated brutally. Awww, our girl is all grown up, isn't she?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! <–That's not just ALL CAPS, folks. That is a legitimate scream. If that scream was in a movie, it would be the desperate cry of someone who had just fallen off the world's largest cliff, and it would be loud enough to start an avalanche on a neighboring continent. It would only be slightly less dramatic than Sally Field realizing she had eighteen personalities, her daughter was trapped in a Middle Eastern custody dispute, and her ex-husband was dressing in drag as the nanny…all at the same time. It's a true scream. But why?
Kris flippin' Jenner. That's why. Remember when rumors seemed so true that her talk show was cancelled and the world rejoiced? Yeah, me too…and I'm not even home during the day to defiantly not watch it. It looks like that call may have been premature. Thanks a lot, tiny rapper.
I know I'm likely in the minority on this site, but I have always thought that Albie was an absolute doll (Seriously. My married Bravo lovin' friends are convinced he needs to be my plus one,). Now, I finally see where he gets it. Al is one handsome dude!
I think things are really going to be great this season of Duck Dynasty. It's fun, light-hearted and not too scripted! I love seeing the Robertsons get together, and I think it's hilarious the way Phil interacts with his grandchildren.
Jase is installing a new dock with his brothers and friends as Si gives orders from the edge of the water. Si is great at supervision, but he's reminded that he, of all people, does not have super vision. I think we can all attest to that having seen his coke bottle glasses.
At the warehouse, Si is regaling the warehouse crew with stories of his football days. Jasehas Si's football formula memorized. First, there is a grand exaggeration followed by Si's remarkable strategy. After awhile, the actual story of the game begins, but it's riddled with commercial breaks for Epsom salt, sweet tea, and more ridiculously exaggerated stories.
Bless sweet Benzino and his smaller than average neck. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlantahanger on star is obviously trying to prove that the size of your neck does not correlate to the size of your, um, feet, hands, fill in the blank…
The often misunderstood rapper whose friends use him for his cabin full of video vixens recently got himself into a little pickle (no pun intended) when a nude photograph of himself ended up on a website called Baller Alert. Infer from that name what you will. Oh, Benzino…aren't you old enough to know better?
The kraziness surrounding Lamar Odom'sdrug addiction rumors kontinues, and TMZ is determined to keep saying he's a major krack addict. While other sources are claiming that Lamar's battle is over prescription pills, no matter what you read or where you look, the reports are all konflicting!
In addition to the new substance abuse allegations, the big question is will Khloe Kardashian stand by her man? She's always seemed head-over-heels for her NBA star husband, and I think regardless of what happens in their marriage, she will do everything in her power to make sure he gets the help he needs. Again, depending on which "source" or "family insider" you believe, the couple is either working it out or hiring divorce lawyers.
Y'all realize that Shaunie O'Neal is laughing all the way to the bank, right? The Basketball Wives creator and Executive Producer thinks she has a franchise hit on her hands, although, has she watched the L.A. version?
She doesn't care about how the women are perceived, she just cares about the ratings, and she pretty much says just that in a recent interview. I can't say I'm surprised, but you'd think that Shaunie would at least have the sense to keep her smugness to herself. Who I am kidding, this is Nostrils we're talking about!
What happened on last night's Dance Moms should have stayed on last night's Dance Moms…okay, so that didn't really work, but you get the Vegas reference, right? Abby Lee Miller is probably upset that her behavior didn't stay in Vegas, because, dare I say, she actually showed a glimmer of humanity and emotion about her fallout with Kelly.
I can't say I'm excited to see the pyramid back in action after such a nice hiatus. The moms aren't satisfied with Abby's nonexistent reason for her past absences, but Abby doesn't care. She didn't want to be around people who treat her negatively. Kelly and Abby get into it over who did or didn't make a spectacle in Orlando when someone should have (or shouldn't have) moved seats. When Kelly calls her out for acting like Kathy, Abby says that it wasn't Kathy's behavior that always rattled her, it was her reaction to Kathy's behavior that rattled her. Has someone been doing some self-reflection?
Before Abby unveils the girls' ranking in the pyramid, Holly questions how she made her decision given that she's skipped the last two competitions. Duh, score cards! Paige is at the bottom because she's Kelly's daughter, but also because she needs to be a more technical dancer. Brooke follows her sister for her recent fourth place solo. Nia is third from the bottom…not because she doesn't try, but because it's just not clicking for her. Kendall rounds out the bottom for being inconsistent and performing better in rehearsal than competition. MacKenzie is on the tail end of the second tier for careless mistakes, followed by Asia who is improving each week. Maddie takes the second spot because Abby thinks she needs to setting her goals higher. Chloe has finally made it back to the top of the pyramid.
