Well this is totally unprecedented! Seriously, it's like uncharted Bravo territory. I don't even know where to start. Has Andy Cohen signed off on this major occurrence?
We are all far too familiar with the fact that the Housewives franchise is the jumping off point for drama-fueled ladies and their wine/cookbook/work-out ventures, but now a Real Housewives of New York newbie is switching up the entire protocol. She's trying to get her product out there before we've even seen her on the show!
As if the amount of peanut brittle I've eaten today isn't gag-worthy enough, Kris Jenner swoops in to ruin my sugar high with her talk of Kimye's wedding, how in love Yeezus is with daughter Kim Kardashian, and how great things are with Bruce post-separation. It makes me kind of want to poke myself in the eye.
It will come as no surprise that Kim isn't going to tone it down for wedding number three to Kanye West. Shocker! After her million dollar event for a marriage that lasted less than three months, that sounds reasonable enough.
Shame on the Grinches who tried to rain on the Shannon-Thompson's Christmas spirit! Not everyone agrees with me, but the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family could teach lessons on the importance of giving back and not letting reality stardom go to one's head.
Each year, the family known for 'sketti and forklift foot puts on an insane display of Christmas lights, gathers to meet fans, and asks for canned goods and toys to donate to a local charity. They even sell merchandise from their show with the proceeds benefiting the charity. You can't get more down to earth than that! Are you paying attention, Kardashians?
For Christmas, all I want is for Brandi Glanville to stop making excuses for her recent behavior on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Y'all know me. I was Team Brandi for a long time. However it irks me to no end when people claim to take responsibility for their actions and then qualify the blame elsewhere in my next breath. It's like a thief saying "I really shouldn't have robbed that bank because it was wrong. However, it really should have had a better security system." Um no. That's not how it works.
After last week's episode, Brandi is very apologetic for her drunken antics. She's embarrassed. It was wrong…but Joyce Giraud made her do it! Because of editing we won't get to see what a horrible person Joyce is…or at least that's what Brandi wants us to believe.
Tamra recently petitioned the court requesting that Simon's ban on the children being filmed be overturned. Simon claims that their two oldest children, fifteen-year-old Sidney and thirteen-year-old Spencer have been subjected to "social ridicule" by classmates after Tamra's often raunchy behavior on the show. Somehow I don't find that hard to believe in the least!
It was bound to happen sooner or later…one of the stars of Dance Moms has written a book. Holly Frazier announced viaTwitter, that her fellow dance moms would be supporting her at a book-signing where she was promoting her new tome Moments of Clarity.
I love Holly, and she's the only level-headed, intelligent, class act on the show over the age of thirteen. After the event, Holly posted the above picture with the caption "Thank you to everyone who attended my book signing tonight! I appreciate the support! Perfect event & night."
After Real Housewives of Atlanta'sNeNe Leakes stint in the hospital due to a blood clot in her lungs, the reality star has been honing in on healthcare. And who better to hone with (on television, no less) than Dr. Oz? Newbie housewife Mynique Smith instagrammed the above picture of with the caption "Ur girl @NeneLeakes did a great job on Dr. Oz today @GregLeakes #health #educated."
Of course, if NeNe's making the talk show rounds, one of her RHOA co-stars has to work to keep up with the the Joneses Mrs. Leakes by scoring her own televised sit down. Gone with the wind fabulously cray-cray Kenya Moore dished on her friendship (or lack thereof) with the Neenster to Wendy Williams. So Mynique is kissing Neen's booty while Kenya is trashing it…this isn't going to end well…but it's going to be fun to watch!
Well it appears we're about to have a Sharks versus Jets situation on this season's Mob Wives, only it will be Philly taking on Staten Island, and by Staten Island, I mean Renee Graziano. Note to self, never tell a man he smells nice in Renee's presence. What a crazy episode! Does someone need to go back to therapy? Let's get started, shall we?
At Drita D'avanzo's house, construction is going full force. She's all about renovating her home while trying not to remember that the last time they tried to remodel her husband Lee robbed a bank and ended up in jail. Big Ang drops in to see the progress and enjoys hearing that Lee is happy to be working a regular job. Drita is stressing about her oldest daughter being bullied in school, and a girls' night out with the ladies helmed by Alicia deMichele Garofalo is just what the doctor ordered.
Alicia has finished listening to years worth of wire taps that have made her husband into a virtual stranger. She can't dwell on what she's learned though because she has to host a party for her family. She has sheltered her children from their father's antics, and she's just trying to focus on her oldest son going off to college. Alicia has grand plans to send him care packages full of meatballs and condoms. She takes her brother aside to discuss her husband's lies via wiretap. Alicia wants to confront her husband about her new knowledge, and her brother hopes that she'll realize "it is what it is." I'd knee my brother where it counts, but Alicia is happy for the support.
