With no frighteningly competitive tantrum-throwing moms and creepy pageant coach dads living their dreams through overly caffeinated living dolls, wherever is the THE LEARNING CHANNEL (it cracks me up every time) going to get its material? Oh, that's right…the Amish (and I love it. No shame).
Where am I going with this, you ask? After six seasons, Toddlers & Tiaras is no more. Let that sink for a second.
I know you'll agree with me that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Silas Robertson is married, y'all! Of course, we all already knew this, although Uncle Si's wife has stayed out of the spotlight while her husband and family skyrocketed to fame withDuck Dynasty.
When news of Si's happy forty-three union became common knowledge, hearts were breaking all over the country, although his love for his wife made all those broken-hearted ladies adore him even more. Am I right? Oh, I know I am!
For every bout of bad behavior, every Bravo star has a sob story and tiny violin to play to explain it away. Real Housewives of Miami'sAdriana de Moura is no exception. Listen, I'm not discounting a troubled youth or a sad home life or awful relationships which lead to low self-esteem, but don't we all have these same issues on some level or another?
Where else should these "explanations" be aired but on their Bravo blog? Adriana uses hers this week to share why she has such trust issues and why meeting with the minister was so important to her and her husband fiance Frederic.
If any of y'all are watching I Dream of NeNe (and I don't get the feeling that many of you are), you know that NeNe Leakes' ego takes center stage and is second to not much else. Now, I like the Neenster, but Bravo may have put too many eggs in one basket by making this a season-long series. There's just not that much to it.
So, leave it to NeNe (another potential spin-off title?) to start drumming up the press for the sixth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe is a promoter at heart, and she knows who butters her bread. She's no doubt happy to generate some Bravo buzz about the next RHOA go-round, which, by the way, starts a month from today on November 3rd!
Well, if this isn't psychotic, I don't what is! Somebody has been toking hash, getting stoned, high as a kite, smoking the wacky weed, enter more ganja euphemisms here. I know you're going to be terribly shocked by this tidbit of gossip.
It seems that Jim Jones has been imbibing in the Mary Jane (is that even a thing?), and I am betting that Mama Jones isn't thrilled with her son's latest antics. That's right, y'all! Rapper Jim Jones is in a bit of trouble.
Today, Dina Manzo and sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita are acting anything but close, which shouldn't come as such a surprise, given that Dina has distanced herself from all of her fam…especially sister Caroline.
Of course, with the new rumors that Dina will be making a triumphant return to RHONJ, it isn't all that strange that people are whispering that Jacqueline has been given the ax by Andy Cohen. With Caroline starting her own reality show, Jacqueline would be the only person Dina would have an issue with if she were to come home to Bravo…and we all know how much Andy loves Grandma Wrinkles Dina.
Last night'sI Dream of NeNe shifted the drama and cattiness from Gregg Leakes' kids and plops it right on top of NeNe Leakes' bridesmaids. The only constant throughout it all? The Neenster's larger than life ego stays totally intact! Also, if I wanted to make this a drinking game, I'd have you chug your vino every time NeNe talked about her bride-maids. Am I crazy for thinking there should be an "s" in there?
Gregg is running interference with son Damien while NeNe schools her remaining adult step-children. Dr. Jeff is hoping he can help the family move forward, and all of Gregg's kids (sans Damien) seem just plain confused by the situation. Look at NeNe's flowing locks in her interview sessions! Work! Dr. Jeff thinks that the major issue is between Gregg and the kids instead of NeNe and the kids. Oh, Bravo editing…now NeNe's interview session hair is in sort of an Adam Lambert-esque bob.
NeNe is hoping that Gregg's only daughter Katrina will be the voice of reason. She feels that Katrina's feelings get lost among her boisterous brothers. Katrina reveals that she doesn't have much of a relationship with her father because he only responded to her when she asked for money. She wanted a more emotional and supportive role in her dad's life. NeNe bonds with Katrina over her own absent father. Katrina seems to have gotten through to Gregg and he promises to rectify their relationship.
That Heather Dubrow from Real Housewives of Orange County is one busy, busy, busy little bee! Don't believe me? Fear not, she's going to tell you herself! The reality star, mom, wife (I know it's in the show title, but we all know that actual "wives" on these franchises are few and far between!), and former Malibu Country actress (sorry, I couldn't resist!) has a lot on her plate these days.
Even though her season has finished filming, Heather is trying to juggle car pools, hosting gigs, and acting roles…not to mention she and husband Terry are building a new home. It's a rough life for those Dubrows!
