Well, they are definitely back! Last night's Mob Wives and me thinks the new girls need to learn the pecking order…and fast!
The episode begins as Renee Graziano is taking her shoe line to Alicia DiMichele Garafalo's boutique in hopes that people want to wear stilettos sporting a hand flipping the bird. Why not? The women chat nonchalantly about the upcoming charges facing Alicia's husband who happens to be Renee's lifelong friend. He's warned Alicia not to let Renee get in her into any drama. The women compare new tattoos and talk about Eddie's amazing qualities and his rap sheet…and now Alicia's thanks to her involvement with his business.
Across town,Drita D'avanzo and Big Ang are partaking in pedis, massages, and gossip over newbie Natalie Guercioand her drunken lunch antics. They are concerned that Renee has gotten so close with someone who may be able to derail her sobriety. Drita then reveals that she has a stalker at her make-up salon who is scaring her employers. Mid-sentence, Renee texts Drita to see if the ladies will join her and Natalie for lunch the following day. Ang is super hesitant to relive another meal with Natalie.
I'm not sure what it says about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that Kim Richards is most grounded and coherent participant this season. Don't get me wrong, I am thrilled to see Kim so healthy (and hilarious!), but she seems to be the only one with any sort of sense. Discussing Monday's episode, Kim is quick to call out Brandi Glanville's deplorable behavior while noting that her friend no doubt regrets her actions. She also sympathizes with Joyce Giraud's attempts to host a nice weekend while dismissing Yolanda Foster and Lisa Vanderpump as rude. She's really kind of spot on with her entire assessment.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Kim begins, "Once we got settled in our rooms we headed straight to the pool. Right off the bat it just didn't feel right, and there was a lot of tension. The push for Joyce to take her sundress off! Look, in my opinion Joyce invited us all down to have a good time and to do whatever we wanted in a beautiful home. She had a chef to prepare nice dinners and planned activities, but the rest should be up to us. If you want to swim, then swim. If you want to take a walk, then take a walk. There should be no rules except to just come have a good time. I have hosted many trips in my life and just because it is my trip, doesn't mean I have to babysit. For instance, when I took my friends to Hawaii once, some people wanted to lie out while others wanted to shop or go marlin fishing. You can't be with everyone at the same time. I thought it was a little ridiculous for Yolanda to tell Joyce how to handle herself. I mean grow up!"
Spin that Statement 101 must be a required course at the Community College of Ratchet Reality because the folks on Love & Hip Hop are making the grade! Viewers seem to be repulsed by Peter Gunz for hopping between two women, but they are also a tad weirded out that the women seem to put up with his horrifically disrespectful behavior! Tara Wallace kicked Peter out of their shared apartment when she learned that he'd married (yes, married!) Amina Buddafly behind her back, yet she still fell into bed with Peter.
When Amina learned of her alleged husband's infidelity (how could she even be remotely surprised?), she doubted that he would cheat. Upon hearing this news, Tara seemed almost proud that she'd gotten back at the woman who ruined her family by announcing that not only was she still sleeping with Peter, but she'd taken Plan B a few times in as many months. You know, to each their own, but it gives me the heebie jeebies to think of having unprotected sex with someone you know full well is doing the same with other partners.
I guess we can agree to disagree because Tara doesn't see that as the case. In a recent interview, Tara defends her actions while admitting that she's no longer dumb enough to keep sleeping with Peter. Well, at least there's that!
Give it a rest, dude. Seriously, just give it a rest. After Kourtney Kardashian released a paternity test revealing that LordScott Disick was, in fact, the biological father of her oldest child, the model who claims he's Mason's dad won't leave it alone. Why in the world anyone would try to be be related to the Kardashian krew is so far beyond me!
Michael Girgenti claims that he bedded the oldest Kardashian sister after meeting at a photo shoot right around the time she would have gotten pregnant with the now four-year-old Mason. Despite the fact that there's a little thing called a paternity test in the mix, Michael also failed a lie detector test back in August. The polygraph noted deceptive behavior when Michael answered affirmatively that he and Kourtney had sex.
Lea believes that Joyce is the Karent of this season's RHOBH. Is it the hair flipping? The constant need to insert herself in drama that happened before she appeared on the show? Those ever present pearly whites?
Are you ready for the wicked awesome new A&E reality show starring the Wahlbergs? Sorry y'all! I tried to infuse some of my dad's Boston accent into this post and I have a feeling it was a wicked fail! 🙂 Movie star Mark Wahlberg will be starring alongside his family and his real life entourage, including the inspiration for Johnny Drama! The upcoming Wahlburgers tracks the clan as they open a burger joint in their Boston neighborhood.
Of the show, brother Paul reveals to People, "Being in business with my brothers was never the plan," with matriarch Alma adding about her sons' adolescent neighborhood notariety, "It used to be 'Oh, God! Those Wahlberg kids.' Today it's 'Whoa, it's the Wahlbergs!'"
Mark shares, "Paul, he's the chef. He's the most talented one in the family. It always comes down to family and having each other's back."
The show premieres on January 22, 2014 at 10:30 ET on A&E!

Is Lamar Odom finally taking responsibility for his bad behavior in an attempt to get his life back on track? Will Khloe Kardashian Odom still be around if and when he does…or will she be too busy inspiring the young lads of One Direction 2.0? It's a lot to take in, I know!
Starting with Lamar, he's changed his plea from "not guilty" to "no contest" in his recent DUI offense. Radar Online is reporting that Lamar will have his license suspended automatically for a year for refusing further chemical testing after his arrest. A source tells the site, “Odom pled no contest to first offense DUI, and the refusal to take further testing after he was arrested was dismissed."
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol shares, “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests. That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”
The bad news is that they appear to be back, but the good news is it doesn't sound like they will be procreating any time soon. Of whom am I speaking? Why Speidi, of course! On the heels of debuting an E! special, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also admitted to blowing through millions of dollars at the height of their reality infamy. After Shock: Heidi and Spencer aired on Monday, and the couple spoke candidly about playing villains on the a myriad of reality shows, beginning with The Hills.
Us Weekly breaks down the hour-long insider look at the pair, noting that it's difficult to tell just how "real" the pair was on the E! show. Spencer shared with viewers, "I don't think we've ever gotten to be the real Heidi and Spencer on TV," adding that the show was all about faking scenes and creating drama.
