Updated below! Well, it's always nice to share some news of reality stars giving back to the community, and everyone seems to be in the charitable spirit this time of year. It's enough to make a Scrooge like me put away her Bah-Humbugs and finish decorating the tree!
Braxton Family Values stars–and sassy sisters–Traci, Towanda, and Trina Braxton are going to be on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with Cedric the Entertainer tonight and tomorrow night to raise awareness and money for the organization Saving Our Daughters, an anti-bullying campaign.
So last night's Love & Hip Hop was one giant mess, was it not? Peter Gunz keeps getting worse and worse, and the women in his life have got to be the best actresses on the planet because there is no way that they are that stupid. Throw in K. Michelle's attitude, and my head is reeling. You know it's bad when Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena are the sanest folks on the episode!
Saigon invites Erica Jean to the studio to apologize for screaming at her, throwing her pocketbook, lunging at her, calling her every name under the book, and accusing her of stunting their son's development. No biggie. He explains that his father was always so ugly to his mother and it made him hate his dad. He doesn't want his son to see him treating Erica in the same manner. Erica is thrilled that Saigon has seen the light, and he actually rationally and calmly inquires as to whether she'd be alright if they both took their son to see a speech therapist. He knows his son is fine (he's clearly been doing some more googling!), but it can't hurt to see a specialist. Just think of the drama they could have avoided had he done it that way the first time!
I feel like I need to pull out my Sweet Valley High slam book for the fiasco that was Sunday'sReal Housewives of Atlanta. Most likely to spend her life barefoot and pregnant? Oh, wait, she left the show for her own spin-off…Best looking? Let's ask the folks over at Miss America USA if pretty is as crazy does. As for biggest mouth, I think we can all agree that NeNe Leakes will own what she says–and twist it accordingly to serve her purpose.
This week the Neenster got into a war of words with Phaedra Parks and her special skills. While I'm sure she was known for her oral arguments in law school, NeNe insinuated that Phaedra had other oral accomplishments back in high school. Ladies, ladies, can't we all just get along?
Well color me shocked! Former Basketball Wives' star Evelyn Lozada is having a baby with a gazillionaire athlete. I never would have guessed! While the reality star is still remaining mum on the father of her unborn baby, pretty much every media outlet is reporting that the child's father is Carl Crawford of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
People claims that the reveal happened in an online interview. However, her rep is adamant that Evelyn did not verbally confirm Carl's paternity. Evelyn will, of course, talk all about how excited she is to be having another child.
Ashlee is participating in an upcoming lingerie photo shoot which she promises will be tasteful. "Tasteful" is usually the first word that comes to mind when I think of lingerie photo shoots…and Ashlee!
Poor Rich Dollaz. He doesn't have a story line on this seasons Love & Hip Hop that even comes close to comparing to that of his best friend Peter Gunz. He's spent most of the season making hilarious facial expressions as Peter's women fight around him and pining after Erica Mena.
Now Rich is speaking out about all of the drama and his record label that seems to be at the center of it all. Not surprisingly, he shares that he and Erica are still in love (so, I guess that lesbian thing didn't work out?), and he dishes on why former bestie Olivia Longott may have made a mistake by leaving the reality show.
Hey, remember a little Bravo experiment called Newlyweds: The First Year? Yeah, I barely do either, but it's been renewed by the network. The show chronicled four couples as they traversed the ups and downs of their first year of marriage. Of course, it's hard to forget the extremely loud, extremely bossy, and extremely spoiled Tina Sugandh and her husband Tarz Ludwigsen.
The couple tackled intimacy issues, fertility struggles, and pounds and pounds of make-up, rhinestone encrusted iPhone covers, and peacock costumes. Now, like any good Bravolebrity, Tina is trying to extend her and Tarz's fifteen minutes by crossing her fingers for a spin-off show.
So where are the vampires and werewolves? Last night was the premiere of Mob Wives: New Blood. I liked the stylized new opener…after three seasons, it was long overdue. I do take issue with all that wasted wine though!
Renee Graziano hopes that her ex-husband rots in jail. She can't be bothered with his suffering because she's starting a clothing line to compliment her Boss Bitch shoe line. A.J. is still living at home, but thank goodness, he's got a job. Renee shares that her father is about to be released from prison. Life is going well for her…thank goodness. I think we were all terrified of Renee when it wasn't! After opening her new bar in Miami, Big Ang is thrilled to be back in Staten Island. She calls up Renee to get an earful about Renee's latest fashion endeavor. Renee's friend and newbie co-star Alicia DiMichele Garofalo is throwing a party, and the ladies can't wait to attend.
