Kristen is still just as riled up watching the events unfold in the Berkshires as she was living them. She begins her Bravo blog, Where do I start? Who knew Lu[Ann deLesseps] was a nurse? Thank goodness for Lu. I have to say I felt a lot better knowing her credentials. Ramona kept saying it was not her intention to hit/cut me with a wine glass…I'm curious what exactly was your intention when you threw that glass at my face–it was much more than a knee-jerk reaction? I would LOVE to know. Almost a year later, I am still wondering???"
Ka-kching! It's a kash kow known as a Kim Kardashian keremony! Unless you've been in outer space testing out Kim and Kanye West's honeymoon trip, you know that Kimye is set to walk down the aisle Memorial Day weekend in Paris. Kim has been adamant that her third wedding will be a more intimate and un-televised affair, but rumors are flying around that she is going to rake in upwards of $21 million on her nuptials and the surrounding events. That's a whole lot of flower walls and ugly dresses!
How is Kim kashing in on the big event? Well, consider her marriage to the tiny rapper to be like the Olympics or a local charity party. It's all about the sponsorships, y'all! Apparently people are willing to give Kim (and Kris Jenner, too of course!) just about anything for free to get some exposure. I guess it makes sense given this family is known for total over-exposure!
All of the Real Housewives of Orange County got to meet Lizzie Rovsek on Monday night's episode, and I don't think anyone was surprised at how she was welcomed into the group by Vicki Gunvalson, were they? There's nothing more attractive than a super catty, middle-aged loudmouth acting like the mean head cheerleader in an 80's romcom, is there? Of course, Vicki was just marking her territory as far as Tamra Judge is concerned, and something tells me (duh, the previews!) that Lizzie won't be too sad to cut ties with her new neighbor.
Admitting she doesn't have much to say in her Bravo blog, Lizzie begins, "I started writing this blog several different ways until I realized that I don't really have much to say or know what to say regarding this episode. Honestly, I didn't even know what to think after I watched it. I really didn't think Vicki would insult almost everything about me as she did. There are so many things to say and nothing to say at the same time," adding, "I don't pick people apart for the way they look or put down things that people have worked for in their life. Vicki says that it takes 'no skill' to be in a beauty pageant…Well, I tell you one thing it gives young women and that is confidence. And thank goodness I have some so I could handle the barrage of insults that came my way tonight."
All Things Real Housewives has recapped the interview in case you missed it. Of the show itself, Lisa recalls, “I do remember saying to [Bravo's producers] that I wanted to leave the show with the same integrity I came in with. I just don’t want any BS editing. I’m no angel, I do make a few snarky comments and have a laugh. It is a television show. But I’m not in this business or on this show to put down my cast mates or get into a bitchfest, that’s not who I am, and I think if that day comes then I should leave."
Sure, she wastes gems by having them put in her teeth, she comes off as the world's biggest nag, and I am not NOT worried about the state of her marriage, but by God, I love Shannon Beador, and last night's Real Housewives of Orange County only affirmed my affections. Not only did she stay true to herself (I like that even though she enjoys spending time with Vicki Gunvalson, she wasn't shy about calling out her mean girl behavior to new girl Lizzie Rovsek), but she managed to make Heather Dubrow look like the ultimate twit (although given how the season has been going thus far, I'm not sure that's quite a feat).
In her Bravo blog highlighting last night's episode, Shannon begins, "I consider Dr. Moon a part of the family so I was really excited when Vicki agreed to see him with me. I love Vicki's spirit — she is open to anything, especially holistic and alternative therapies. Dr. Moon has a theory that when a person is "jammed," energy cannot properly flow through the body for optimum health. He will go through a process to 'de-jam' a patient and one of those areas to 'de-jam' is the tailbone. I know Vicki was joking around, but I want to be clear he does not put his finger in your rear end."
I'm curious…do you think VH1 and Mona Scott Young really, truly believe that viewers think Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is a reality show? The acting is fantastically tragic and there is nothing real about it…except for that sex tape, clearly.
Nikko didn't tell Mimi Faust about his confrontation with Stevie J. immediately after it happened, but he spills the beans when they are driving the next day. When she learns that Nikko has told her ex about the deal Vivid, she has to pull over to read Nikko the riot act. She is cruising in her new vehicle (thanks, Steven Hirsch!), and Mimi doesn't want to wreck it when she wrecks him. As she cusses up a storm, Nikko just laughs that Stevie shouldn't get her riled up like this. Mimi tries to kick him out of her ride, but when he refuses, she's the one who storms off on foot.
Lil' Scrappy is eating eggs with Erica P…or at least he hopes to be scrambling some things with her. He arrives at her house to find out that she's lit candles and served wine, and he wonders whether he's there to pray or have sex. Scrappy is a bit nervous, but he wants to be a better person. He is feeling guilty about Bambi and he wants to think with this head and not his hiz-ead. Scrappy shuts down Erica's advances, complimenting her that he'd definitely be with her if he didn't already have Bambi. And they say romance is dead!
Now that Real Housewives of Atlanta has finished for the season, it's time to start speculating on who will come back, who'll get the boot, and who may get the dreaded demotion to friend status. I'll give it to Bravo, the network has worked it out so that we are never without housewives drama…even if a given season isn't filming!
Rumors have been rampant for a while that Porsha Williams was fired. First gossip claimed that she got axed for being too boring, but she proved that notion wrong when she went hair pulling crazy on co-star Kenya Moore at the RHOA reunion. Of course, following that debacle, stories flooded that Internet saying that Porsha was let go for her violent outburst.
She's not going away, y'all! Courtney Stodden became famous (is that what you'd call it?) when she wed fifty-something "actor" Doug Hutchison at the rip old age of sixteen, and they milked their notoriety on Couples Therapy. After her stint on U.K.'s Big Brother, Courtney called it a day as far as her marriage to Doug was concerned, promising that the two would remain the best of friends. She also promised to stay in the spotlight…well, maybe not publicly, but that is the only answer to why she's still around.
Now, Courtney is introducing a series of webisodes, tackling such hard hitting topics like selfies and helium. You read that correctly. Courtney Naturally is the name of her new endeavor, and Courtney shares with Fox 411, “I'm just being me…Each ep [sic] is fun and outrageous. The best part is there is no filter.”
Her mother–and manager (shocking!)–concurs, explaining that topics will evolve from superficial selfies. Courtney's mother says, “Her and I are on it together and we’re going over baby pictures and laughing about the ways I dressed her. There’s a lot more to come.” Sounds riveting! Check out the first two episodes after the jump! Just a warning…I'm much dumber having watched!
