I remember hearing that Lisa Vanderpump was going to get the bad edit (the "Camille" if you will) this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and I thought to myself, "How is that even a possibility?" Well, Brandi Glanville has certainly done her best (with the help of old Kyle "Splits" Richards) to paint Lisa as some sort of brain melding, manipulative evil genius. And guess, what? It totally backfired. I don't know about you, but to me, the only thing more vanderfabulous than a flawless Lisa is a flawless Lisa who needs a hug because she's human and has hurt feelings thanks to horrible friends.
Even Yolonda Foster (who is her own brand of lemony perfection), has been giving Lisa the side-eye, but it's all incredibly unwarranted. What did Lisa do to any of these ladies besides throw glamorous parties and have a biting sense of humor? They probably hate Giggy, too. Imbeciles. Lisa doesn't even retaliate in her RHOBH blog, which is pretty much the standard place for the ladies' usual passive aggression. This week, she just sounds so defeated. In her Bravo blog, Lisa begins, "And here we are again. Another week has flown by."
So, were y'all glued to the first half of the Vanderpump Rulesreunion like I was on Monday? Team U.S.A. who? Kidding!(?) 🙂 I mean, season one, meh, season two, I'm an addict! Here are some things that I now know to be true (besides the obvious "Kristen Doute is totally insane" diatribe): Katie Maloney looks much better as a brunette (welcome back!), she's not featured enough on the show, and she is incredibly well-spoken. I'd also add that's she's a horrible drunk, but she addresses that ever so astutely in her Bravo blog this week. It's kind of long, so I left out her very level and kind words for Scheana Marie'shosting career and her opinions on Jax Taylor's sex addiction. However, I made sure to touch on her thoughts on her friendship with Stassi Schroeder and Kristen and Tom Sandoval's crazy dysfunctional relationship, . Seriously, am I the only one who is surprised by the level of maturity in Katie's blog?
She begins, "After everything that's happened, I don't think the vibe is any better at SUR. It's just different. Obviously with all the time that has past its allowed the dust to settle and lift the tension from the air. Whether or not Stassi was still working at SUR or not, it would still be the same. The dynamic has shifted big time and relationships have changed all for the better. I am thankful that all of us are able to be cordial and still work along side one another."
I realize that I have the benefit of hindsight, but I think I could have told anyone months ago that the two skeeziest (and therefore most entertaining) stars of Love & Hip Hop: Atlantaopening a restaurant/bar/club would not have been the best idea. And, of course, I would have been right. Duh!
Besties Stevie J. and no-neckBenzino had the grand opening of their "bistro bar" Sleazy & Zino which ended up in a big ol' mess…as is par for the course with this crew. It's been reported that the fight was instigated by Joseline Hernandez' friend, and Karlie Redd was knocked out in the process. There was even talk that VH1 wouldn't allow regular old folks like you and me party with the cast for fear of a lawsuit in the event of yet another violent outburst. Good times with these guys, for sure!
Is this what we're calling avant-garde these days? Lady Gaga fancies herself to be on the experimental edge of pop culture and pop music (and having been to one of her concerts, I'd say men dressed in condoms and burning statutes crying blood aren't your typical pop fan fare), and now she's pushing the envelope even more.
That's right. Gaga is supposedly featuring the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in an upcoming video. Perhaps she's more mainstream than she'd like to admit. You know Kyle Richards' is having a field day over this! I can only imagine the title of this song!
Don't know what to get your honey for Valentine's Day? Perhaps you should consult the newest personal shoppers for KMart and Sears! Surely Real Housewives of Atlanta'sNeNe and Gregg Leakes could help you pick out a gift of two!
As an avid bargain hunter who shops all things KMart (they have some super cute stuff, y'all!), I'm kind of excited to see what the Neenster has in store for this collaboration.
Well, it's a good thing that Laura Govan isn't returning to Basketball Wives: L.A. because breaking the law doesn't make for a good story line! Oh wait, this is VH1, so yes, yes, it probably does! Laura was just slapped with a lawsuit which alleges she violated federal law. That's never good!
I can't with Abby Lee Miller. I just can't anymore. She's not really this horrible, is she? On last night's episode of Dance Moms, she was sabotaging her girls left and right. In Pittsburgh, Abby is still unhappy over a less than stellar showing at the last competition. She can't even enjoy that the group number was the highest scoring routine of the event. Jill reminds Abby that bringing Chloe 2.0 took time away from Abby's actual team. Abby spent far too much time bringing Chloe 2.0 up to speed. Abby agrees…bringing on one new dancer to replace one member of the ALDC wasn't the best idea. She plans to form an entirely new team to beat her current girls. Only Maddie may get to be a part of this elite squad known as the special victims unit.
During the pyramid, the original Chloe is on the bottom for her fourth place solo, followed by Kendall and then Nia for not winning their duet. Jill and Holly couldn't care less. They know their daughters did far better than anyone could have with such little instruction. MacKenzie rounds out the bottom for not having enough stage presence in the group dance. Brooke is last on the second rung for not pushing herself. Her sister Paige is second on the pyramid with Maddie on top. For this week's New York City competition, both of Kelly's daughters get solos, and Paige also gets a placed in a duet with Chloe. Abby hopes that Kelly will look at this as an opportunity for Paige to shine instead of complaining her daughter is under too much pressure to learn multiple dances. Abby then invites Kelly, Christi, and their daughters to accompany her to the open casting call in NYC. When questioned about the remaining team members, Abby reveals that there is another competition in town in which Nia, Kendall, MacKenzie and Maddie will be performing.
So last night was the Love & Hip Hop reunion part duh deux. Let's hope that Mo'Nique can salvage what was a boring first half. Right off the bat, Mo'Nique warns everyone to keep their seats. She resumes her conversation with Peter Gunz, Tara Wallace, and Amina Buddafly. Mo'Nique questions whether Amina is worried she'll be Tara in ten years. Amina reveals that after a year of marriage, Amina already feels like Tara as Peter is up to his old tricks. We are treated to a highlight reel of the love triangle. I hope that Tara is as grossed out by her language regarding sexing up Peter as I am. Amina reveals that she will never allow herself to become Tara, Peter made her look like a fool, and Amina isn't going to put up with his shenanigans. The women are actually making some mature points, which is a plus. Erica Mena gives Amina a round of applause.
Peter admits that if he'd known Tara had such strong feelings for him, he probably wouldn't have married Amina. He announces that he's too old to be acting like this, and he believes that both women deserve better. Peter needs to work on becoming a better person. Amina interrupts to remind the audience that she loves pulling surprises out of her bra (Mrs. Pansky's drivers' license anyone?) before throwing a positive pregnancy test at Peter. Yup, Urine. She says that unlike Tara, she didn't take the Plan B. Erica is beside herself. "Shiz just got real, y'all!" she yells as Peter storms off the stage. Erica goes to comfort Amina, while Tahiry Jose follows Peter, urging him to publicly apologize to Tara for humiliating her on national television.
