I've got two pieces of Basketball Wives news that are going to make you want to cry in your Cheerios. First of all,Laura Govan had a birthday party, and you weren't invited. I'll give you a few minutes to get over that burn.
Recovered yet? Okay, good. I know we're all supportive ofTami Roman proving that she's changed and doesn't mind talking to the hand (oh wait…) and can have an argument without getting heated or violent (ehh…), so you'll be disappointed to hear that she still thinks that Evelyn Lozada should reconcile with Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Do we as a society really need that additional drama? I think not.
If you're like me, you're wondering what great deed you must have done this weekend to be treated to two full hours of Kody Brown's hair. Oh, and Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn were there too…
The Sister Wives reunion begins with Tamara Hall addressing Kodilocks (thanks reader Hegeira for that hilarious moniker!) and the Brown wives. The family relives the drama of getting financing for the cul-de-sac compound and Meri's tears. Christine and Janelle are sporting some pretty heavy make-up, and Meri explains that there is more potential for jealousy now that the women are in such close proximity. When Tamara tries to dig deeper, Meri begins back-tracking and Christine admits sometimes she is visited by the green monster. Tamara needs to take over the Housewives reunions!
To lighten the mood, the group jokes about a time when Kody was told by Robyn that he needed to put on his big boy panties and get used to his wives empowering themselves with My Sister Wives Closet. He blushes over the jokes as Robyn apologizes. Tamara then shares Danny the builder's insights on Kody and all of his ladies. Everyone agrees that Danny is spot-on with his assessments.
Well, well, well. Are we starting to see some deeper cracks in Kody Brown's "happy" marriages? TLC needed to save the biggest issues for the final episode of the season of Sister Wives. Robyn's budget jewelry line, Meri's coveted wet bar, Janelle's scale hatred, and Christine's crafting have been leading up to some finale night dramz!
Last night, we began with Kody sharing that he and his wives went to counseling when living in Utah, and they are meeting with a new therapist to discuss their issues. This woman was recommended by their previous therapist who specialized in plural families. After taking personality tests (Meri is not on board), we learn that this process is just furthering their mission statement goal. That's really going to be their thing, isn't it? Kody is initially wary of this educated woman. She's probably a feminist, and feminists aren't fans of polygamy. Who knew?
Kody and Meri are sitting down with Mariah to discuss her expensive tuition. Mariah's scholarship doesn't cover very much, and the school costs much more than Logan's UNLV education. Mariah offers to get another job, but Kody reminds her that her she has sixteen other siblings that they need to consider. Kody isn't willing to co-sign any loans because, you know, he wants to retire. Tell me again how you retire from not having a job? Mariah is devastated, and Meri tells Kody that they've been working on other scholarship options that he isn't aware of since he's been so M.I.A. lately. Wait, I thought this cul-de-sac compound was supposed to bring everyone closer….literally?
You know what they say, when life hands you lemons, make some lemonade. It seems that Basketball Wives'Tami Roman missed this memo because when life gave her lemons in the form of mean girl co-stars not wanting to let go of her volatile present past, she decided to make nail polish instead.
On the past episodes of this season's BBW, producers have tried (in very tiny doses) to portray Tami as a calm, cool, and collected (read: sane) woman with a cosmetics business venture looming on the horizon. Really, all we've seen is Tami pick out enamel colors with a celebrity manicurist and ponder whether she should name shades after those who are closest to her. However, I guess now she has plenty of time on her hands to devote to her latest endeavor.
Real Housewives of New York'sAviva Drescher certainly hopes so, and she's penning a tell-all about her life in hopes of snagging herself a spot among the ghost writers who have made so many housewives into best selling authors.
I'm sorry. I'm not buying it. No couple is that gooey all the time (thank goodness!). Of course, along with Melissa's "happy wife, happy life" mantra, both she and Joe claim to be the most in love couple and devoted parents. I'm not saying they aren't, but do they feel as if they have to constantly shove it down our throats? Yes, I guess they do.
She may be Krayonce, but Real Housewives of Atlanta'sKenya Moore is no dog abandoner! The crazy-eyed reality star is twirling mad after someone allegedly spread a rumor that she left her pooch behind when she had to move (read: she totally blames her former landlord for the false doggy gossip!).
Hey, all you skeptics of true and everlasting devotion–I'm about to burst your bubbles and melt your cold, closed hearts. Romance is alive and well, and it's residing in Atlanta. It's with heart full of love (and yes, I was humming the song from Les Miserables as I typed that line) that I share this exciting news.
You know what people do when they are #talented and #inlove? They make music. That said, please enjoy two of Joseline's videos after the jump. You're welcome. No, seriously. You may kind of owe me after this…
