Guess what, y'all! Shah's of Sunset'sLilly Ghalici is more than just a tiny pile of extensions and lip gloss and eyelashes. She's actually an extremely successful business woman and entrepreneur who plays an over-the-top "character" on Bravo's hit show. The lawyer turned reality star/bikini mogul is doing something right when it comes to her fashion start-up. I'm not even being sarcastic for once…Lilly is quite savvy.
In an interview with YFS Entrepreneur, the pint sized Lilly explains how she got to where she is now. She tells the site, "I was practicing law and I wasn’t really fulfilled. You know, it’s a job; it’s a 9 to 5 (more like a 7 to 8 when you’re first starting out as an associate). It just wasn’t really fulfilling. I’m an entrepreneur at heart so I decided I wanted to start my own business. I knew I wanted it to be in fashion, health or beauty. I had this great idea for bikinis so I just decided to do it and I jumped in headfirst. I figured I was going to give it my all; I’m not going to work part-time, do this part-time, so I just quit my job and I was working on it 24/7. It became my life, my passion…"
You know why I wasn't at NeNe Leakeswedding? You guessed it! I wasn't invited. Shocking, I know. Do you know why Kenya Moore's Gone with the Wind Fabulous self wasn't at the Neenster's nuptials? Her invitation also got lost in the mail She was traveling to Africa. Oh Kenya.
When the Real Housewives of Atlanta's newest drama queen isn't dodging eviction rumors and trying to hire fake husbands for story lines, she's entertaining fans with her high and mighty attitude. You don't get to be Miss USA if you're meek.
Happy Fourth of July, RT readers! Just as our forefathers wanted, I've got some Bravo drama for you on our nation's birthday! Not shockingly, it's from the ladies of Real Housewives of New York.
The craziness starts with a polo lesson courtesy of Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras…and I have on good authority that Bravo cameras were there catching every catty situation! The sixth season of RHONY is hyped as being the most dramatic ever, and I'm sure the ladies don't want to disappoint.
It seems like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are constantly in the media for feuding or cookbooks or club promotions, so today we thought we'd send some love to Real Housewives of New Jersey'sKathy Wakile. Granted, it's not as exciting or dramatic as anything her co-stars are usually stirring up, but sometimes we need a little calm in our lives, right?
Speaking to Parade, Kathy dishes on life with the Bravo cameras and how she's tried to maintain balance with her family, her new business opportunities, and the all encompassing world of reality television.
Kathy has tried hard to make sure her kids don't listen to the haters, saying, “Sometimes it gets to you when people feel they are entitled to negatively judge you based on what they see on TV. My husband and I always discuss these things with our kids and try to reinforce what they know to be true about our family and not respond to ‘critics’ who don’t know the whole story. At the end of the day, we are each others foundation and stability, and that will never change. Our mantra is: ‘Don’t let other people’s perception change your reality.’”
It's no secret that one of my guilty pleasures is the cray-cray drama of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. But, if I'm going to be totally honest, trying to figure out Lil' Scrappy's secret language is something I look forward to each Monday. I honestly think that if I could get Shay to go away (man, she bugs!), Scrappy and I would be the best of friends.
Sure, he may not be in the running for Father of the Year, but there is something about Scrappy that is so endearing. Now, he's won my heart over even more as he's planning to start preaching sobriety and clean living to teens. Don't even try to tell me it's PR. I don't care. I lov-is-nigh-ee it!
Blah, blah, blah….that's what comes to mind when I hear the title of the latest Dance Moms special Dance Moms Chatter. Jeff Collins returns to mediate (is he wearing pink pants? Props!) an hour of filler that promises Kelly and Christi drama, comediennes, and drunk fans (turns out they were one and the same). Jeff revisits the breakdown in Kelly and Christi's friendship, and Kelly admits that she has a hard time letting people into her life. Likewise, Christi knows that it's going to take a long time to regain her former bestie's trust.
Two super fans/comediennes join Kelly and Christi on stage. As the four women share cosmos, Christi wouldn't mesh well with the super fans who hope their kids are never more than mediocre. They don't want their entire lives to revolve around their children's after-school activities. Kelly reminds the super fans that their kids would fit right in with her daughters as Abby Lee Miller is constantly reminding her that her girls are average.
I notice that Christi's hair is the same color as Jeff's pants–it's got a pink tint…or is that my television? We are treated to a montage of all the moms yelling and bickering at some point during the franchise (there is no cohesiveness or chronology in this special), and Christi takes the opportunity to take digs at Kristie 2.0. Kelly reveals that it was Asia that dubbed the original Christi as "Fat Christi." Out of the mouths of babes…
