Hello out there? Are you watching reality shows or are you outside enjoying the beginning of summer? I like to think I've found the perfect balance of both, but it seems we all need to step up our game a bit and show some love to old faithfuls.
Unfortunately, Monday night's shows didn't fare well in the ratings race. Desiree Hartsock's quest for love began on the Bachelorette, but a lot less people tuned in to watch her pass out roses than in seasons past. Likewise, viewers for The Voice are on a steady decline.
Jeff and Blair head to historic Savannah, Georgia for their ceremony, and the couple is hosting a red, white, and blue party. For patriotic Blair, the Fourth of July is almost as exciting as Christmas. Friends toast the happy couple, and uptight Jeff is trying to enjoy the evening while having a touching talk with Blair's mom.
Tina and Tarz head to the gynecologist to talk about fertility. Tina is disappointed that her doctor seems so young, and she is perplexed that the gynecologist isn't buying into her theories about how to up her chances for having a girl. The doctor is extremely intense, but I can't tell if she's joking when she tells Tina she's on the verge of being very old. She instructs the couple of the three times they should have sex each month. Only three? Tarz is disappointed.
It's been a hard holiday weekend for the Shannon/Thompson family, and things don't seem to be looking up for the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan. Here's hoping they get some good news soon.
As we posted on Saturday, Sugar Bear is in the hospital, and tests are being run. Unfortunately, June Shannondoesn't have much more to report on his condition. Also, their sweet pooch China, who often appeared on the show (he was particularly visible in most of the train shots) passed away over the weekend as well. The whole family, especially Alana Thompson, is having a difficult time dealing with the loss.
Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was especially hilarious. While we weren't treated to nearly enough of Joseline Hernandez' one-liners, we did get to witness the most backwards and ridiculous job interview I've ever seen. K. Michelle proved yet again that she's not at all homophobic (cough, cough), and we got to meet Lil' Scrappy's amazingly normal dad. I wasn't expecting that at all!
Mimi Faust is meeting up with Stevie J. to talk about their daughter, but of course, he wants to know all about the Stevie knock-off she's dating. Why does Mimi act so suprised that he isn't able to have an adult conversation? Stevie gets offended that Mimi doesn't like their young daughter around the inappropriate Joseline, but it's nothing he can't get past with some smooth talk and a shot of liquor. What do these women see in him? He reminds her that beside their daughter, they also share a matching tattoo that will bind them together forever. Is he for real?
It turns out that Traci is friends with Shay, so the pair are lunching and chatting about the Lil' Scrappy and Erica Dixon situation. Shay wanted to pay back Scrappy for his behavior, but she's tempted to just be happy that he's happy. Traci agrees that the latter is the better route. She's spent so much time plotting and slashing tires and beating up girls in the course of her time with Drew, and she tells Shay it's better just to let time heal all wounds. Shay is not quite convinced, and I am officially scared of Traci.
Lisa recently dished on the second season of her SUR drama, as well as the her friendship with Kyle Richards. As always, Lisa doesn't mince words, but yet she maintains her wonderful sense of decorum. You can't fault that!
What can I say about Teen MomFarrah Abraham that hasn't already been said? Wait…I can think of a few things. She's humble, she's kind, she's anything but a famewhore, and she always tells the truth. There, I did it!
In today's Farrah news, the reality turned adult film star is angering Justin Bieber's neighbors and pondering the fact that her high school guy friends have seen her naked. Oh, and she's also sharing her sadness about the recent hurricane in Oklahoma. Yes, you read that correctly. While you read on, I'll be shaking my head in amazement.
Not only is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Yolanda Foster classy to the hilt and lemon-y fresh, she's also now an American citizen. That's right! The former model and wife of music producer David Foster took her oath for the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services yesterday along with 4,000 other new citizens.
Not surprisingly, Bravo's camera crews were on hand to capture the memorable moment as YoFo shared her excitement with family and close friend and co-star Brandi Glanville. Was the RHOBH star wearing her signature white jeans and Hermes belt for the occasion? No, but close enough–she was clad in a tailored white suit with an American flag scarf. Of course she was…she's always perfectly attired for any major life event!
You want to know who isn't talking to one another on Real Housewives of Orange County? Unfortunately, I can't give you a cut and dry answer to that question, but I can tell you who IS talking to the media at any given moment. Care to take a guess? If you guessed Gretchen Rossi, you'd be wrong close.
Tamra Barney is all about giving out soundbites these days. Not only is she dishing on her friendships (or lack thereof) with Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen, and Alexis Bellino, Tammy is also reportedly getting a Bravo spin-off with soon-to-be husband Eddie Judge. I know y'all can't wait to set your DVRs!
