Bravo's original housewives franchise is back in full force, and the women of the O.C. are going to bring the drama without question. After saying she wouldn't be returning for this season,Alexis Bellino is back with a vengeance to confront her "bullies." I was convinced that she'd actually been fired, and was just saying she'd quit to save face. Even her husband Jim "the Chin" Bellino was vocal about how much he didn't want his wife onReal Housewives of Orange County.
Now that she's back, Alexis claims she didn't want her kids to think she succumbed to bullies. While I don't agree with how the ladies ganged up on Alexis last season, she needs to quit it with the bully talk. She's a woman who gets paid to be on a show that perpetuates drama. It irks me that Alexis keeps saying she was the victim of bullying because I think it takes away from people who are actually bullied. Let's be honest, Alexis loves being on television, plain and simple.
So, the producer of BUCKWILD isn't going to give up without a fight, is he? After the tragic death of Shain Gandee, MTV pulled the plug on filming the second season. Producer J.P. Williams wasn't happy with network's decision, and his comments about Teen Mom didn't sit well with Jenelle Evans since she's such a pillar of the responsibility.
J.P. Williams is determined that this show has the recipe for success, regardless of what crazy kids they get to star in it. He doesn't need West Virginia, and he certainly doesn't need MTV. BUCKWILD 2.0 will happen, y'all–especially if J.P. Williams has anything to say about it!
Andy Cohen makes my heart smile. He does. I think he's honest and funny, and he seems like one of those celebrities that if you approached him at McDonald's, he'd be totally friendly and let you take a picture with him. In my VERY limited experience, those celebrities are few and far between. Terry O' Quinn (John Locke from Lost) is on the nice list. A certain "Show me the money!" Oscar winner who filmed a straight to video flick in my college town after said Oscar win…not so much. Basically, I heart Andy and have aspirations of being the bartender in theWatch What Happens Liveclubhouse. Too much to ask?
The Kind of Bravo recently did a book signing at Georgia Tech in Atlanta for his memoir Most Talkative. While there, he answered questions about gay people on television and his love life. Andy also plays a fabulous round of Marry, Shag, Kill. He's awesome.
Happy weekend, readers! I've got some pretty phenomenal news for y'all! Guess what? The Kardashians never do anything wrong. Crazy, I know! All the stuff we read about them is lies. Kris Jenner is not trying to find the next highest paycheck for her daughters and Rob. They are just a normal family who enjoys spending a little time in the public eye. The krew would be more than happy to maintain their privacy. Ahahahahaha! It was hard to even type that!
You know how I know this ahmahzing information? It's straight from the pimpmomager herself! Kris is letting everyone know that what we read in the tabloids–like the writings of her late ex-husband's journal–are totally false. In other news, daughter Kim Kardashian's dicorce proceedings are moving forward as planned after her attorneys failed to reach a settlement agreement with those of Kris Humphries. The above picture is her leaving court…what, praytell, is she wearing??
Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKandi Burruss is one busy lady. Not only is she a Grammy winning songwriter, she loves to stir the pot on her RHOA and hawk sex toys while hosting her own radio show. I don't know when she has time to sleep much less star in her own spin-off! The Kandi Factorypremiered Tuesday night on Bravo, and Kandi is convinced that it's head and shoulders above other music competitions.
Did you watch it? The premise is different…and I like it. Kandi mentors two talented singers and provides them with a song she's written to perform. She and her team take them all the way through the recording process before naming one the winner of that night's episode. The weekly winners then go on to compete against one another. Who wouldn't want to get to sing a Kandi original? (Don't answer that, Kim Zolciak!) While I think the idea is awesome, honestly, I couldn't get into the show. While the contestants were cute and kind of talented, I didn't find myself rooting for either of them. Maybe I just felt bad when that poor girl fell, although she kept performing like a trooper–I'll give her that!
That said, I'll certainly give the show another chance because I do love me some Kandi!
Sometimes it's still hard for me to believe that the fist-pumping, falling down drunk, slipper-wearing, foul mouthed teeny orange star of MTV's Jersey Shore became a much more grounded, rascal riding mom during the course of the hit show. Who knew that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi could make such a 180 in life?
Now, Snooki is engaged to Jionni LaValle and proud mom to precious baby Lorenzo. She's focused on a healthier lifestyle and wants to be a positive role model for her son. Don't get me wrong, she's still the opinionated meatball who brought havoc to Seaside Heights, but Snooki has definitely grown up a lot…even if while she was growing, her ta-tas were deflating. No worries, that's what plastic surgery is for, right?
What happens in Jersey certainly doesn't stay in Jersey, especially when it involves anyone from the Real Housewives of New Jersey! The big news of late with these people is a recent brawl at a Posche event. Has Kim D. considered getting corporate sponsors for these fights? She may as well get some extra money for this insanity, right?
What's not to love about Andy Cohen? He's the King of Bravo, he hosts a phenomenally random and funny late night show in a tiny clubhouse, and he penned the hilarious memoir Most Talkative. Let's not forget the fact that he gave us the housewives franchise. What would we have to talk about if not for all of those ladies? Sure he's a horrible reunion host, but nobody's perfect, and he seems to be getting better in my opinion.
Not only is Andy all of these things and more, he's a huge advocate for the gay community. In fact, he was recently named 14th on Out's Power List, which showcases fifty gay men and women who influence the way Americans–and the world–perceive the gay community. RuPaul also made the list in the 50th spot.
