Pop quiz hot shot: You are rumored to have been fired from a bottle-throwing, hair-pulling, drama-filled reality show and you want to gloat about its now declining ratings. What do you do? Well, if you were ever a fixture on VH1's Basketball Wives, you take to Twitter. Duh!
Former BBW stars Jennifer Williams and Royce Reed didn't gel with the show's mean girls, and they aren't a part of this new "healing" season. The ratings haven't been up to par, and many attribute the lack of viewership to fans not condoning the ladies' past behavior. Guess what? That's just fine for Jenn and Royce!
It's been a whole week since I got to spend quality time with Phil, Willie, Jase, Uncle Si, and the rest of the Robertson crew. Sure, I've had my reruns, but I so look forward to Wednesday nights now thanks to Duck Dynasty. Last night was no different. Whether the warehouse boys were convincing Si to pay out his last dollar over a gentlemen's bet or Jase wearing out his welcome at Willie's house, the episode went by too quickly. Sidebar, I love howJep is always referred to as "Willie's Other Brother."
Jase and Missy are renovating their kitchen, so Jase and the kids will be bunking with Willie and Korie. Thankfully, Missy is out of town, so she'll have to miss whatever debacle will surely ensue this weekend. Meanwhile, after a heated race between two toy woodpeckers, Godwin, Martin, Jep, and Si are betting on who can knock down red solo cup pyramids, and Si is doing his best to hustle the warehouse crew. Jep can't believe that Si and his father are related…after all, Phil was almost a quarterback in the NFL, and Si couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.
If you don't have children, you no doubt realize that it's back to school time due to an explosion of "first day" pics in your Facebook newsfeed. I love seeing all my friends' little ones as they head back into the trenches…before the excitement of being back in the classroom is overshadowed by the countdown until winter break.
Well, reality stars are no different, and they are snapping photos of their broods as they start a new school year…or not in the case of Real Housewives of Orange County'sAlexis Bellino. Instead of dropping her children off on their first day of school, she's nursing her kiddos back to health after a bout with the flu.
Well, he's gone and done the unthinkable. The tiny rapper has transformed his lady love from Sear's Kardashian Kollection to high fashion muse–and it's a must see for sure! Kim Kardashian has recently revealed some, um, interesting, pictures from a photo shoot that took place while she was very pregnant with baby North. Of course, if any other celebrity was the subject of the spread, it would no doubt be touted as edgy and artistic. But, let's be honest…it's Kim.
Kanye West has been pushing Kim out of her style comfort zone since the pair got together, and I'd say he's managed to steer her clear into the Siberian tundra of comfort zones with these new photos. And, being Kanye, he was able to score the hautest of the haute to make it happen.
Maybe Lifetime has no intention of ever ending this season of Dance Moms. Since Abby Lee Miller despises the moms so much, you'd think she'd want to put a cap on the number of episodes I have to watch, er, um, I mean, in which she has to participate!
The ALDC is back in Pennsylvania, and Abby is proud of her dancers' showing in Vegas. MacKenzie finds herself at the bottom of the pyramid for being absent, followed by Paige for forgetting her solo. Abby does, however, compliment her performance in the group number. Brooke is one step above her sister, although Abby doesn't think that her solo showcased Brooke's true talent. Nia rounds out the bottom for excelling in rehearsals but flubbing up in competition. When Nia blames her hat for her dancing woes, Abby tells the story of a man whose hand was severed during a show, but the dancers around him didn't miss a beat. Same thing.
Kendall is last on the second tier, and she admits her nerves got the best of her. Abby advises her to exude confidence regardless so she's the one intimidating others, and she reminds Kendall not to watch the soloists before her. Chloe is in third for flying under the radar, followed by Maddie for shining in the group number. The undefeatable Asia is in the top spot. The girls will be traveling to Regionals in Buffalo, and their group number will be hoedown themed. MacKenzie will have a solo, and Abby makes sure to get in a few digs about how she's still in Asia's shadow.
As y'all know, I love Duck Dynasty. In a reality world with name-calling, back-stabbing, hair-pulling, and bed-hopping, I find the Robertsons to be a refreshing change of pace! (Don't get me wrong, I like some drama, too!) Uncle Si has been the breakout star of the A&E hit. While he's been everything from a fashion model to an air traffic controller, yesterday Si added author to his list of accomplishments. His book Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle hit the shelves yesterday.
Si's stories span from days of playing hooky with his brothers to earning good grades in college despite having a hard time making it to class. He discusses his time in the military, how he met his wife, and the blessing of his two children and eight grandchildren.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Si talks about why he chose to pen the tome, as well as the strong faith he shares with his family. Initially, he didn't want to write a book, fearing that he didn't have enough family memories to share with his fans due to his twenty-five years serving in the armed forces. He says, "I was in the military, so I told my wife that I was never there for the kids when they were growing up. And she said, 'oh yeah you were. Let me go get a photo album.' And she was showing me dressed as a bunny rabbit, rooster, and Santa Claus during Christmas time. Personally, I didn't feel that I was there enough."
However, in true Si fashion, he ended up going for it, lamenting, "They just kept bothering me, so I said, OK."
Uh oh! It's about to get Physiochotic up in here! The original Love & Hip Hop matriarch is back, and this time she's writing a book. About dating. This is epic.
Mama Jones, the unstoppable rapper and word-maker-upper from past seasons of the original franchise has signed a book deal, and her love manual will be available on October 18. The star of rapper Jim Jones, Nancy also stars with her son in the VH1 spin-off Chrissy and Mr. Jones.
So, third time's the charm for Tamra Barney? I guess she'll be the judge…literally! Last night was the first installment of Tamra's OC Wedding limited series, and Eddie better hope his recent legal woes don't break the bank…because Tamra's wedding is definitely going to leave a mark on his account! Three dresses, a wild bachelor party, and drama galore later, we know that Tami and Ed do make it down the aisle.
It's been Tamra's dream to get married at the St. Regis, and a cancellation is about to make that happen. Tamra has enlisted celebrity wedding planner Diane Valentine. She did Usher's wedding, y'all! As they tour the venue with Diane and her man of honor, Tamra is beyond ready for her big day.
Back at the couple's gym, Eddie is channeling his inner Shaun T. Tamra reveals that they have an opening at the St. Regis…in five weeks. Eddie can't understand why they need a giant production after they've both already been married. Tamra whines that she's never had a big wedding, and she deserves it! After all, she's already practiced twice.
