I'll be the first to admit that I give Kanye West a hard time…and it's often undeserved. It started with his horrific interruption when Taylor Swift was winning her MTV Award, and it continued on through unbecoming behavior in the media. Let's be honest…his crystal mask didn't help my opinion of him either.
That said, I've found the tiny rapper to be quite entertaining in his relationship with Kim Kardashian and how he interacts with her famous family. He dresses her to amuse us, he wants her to be more private (seriously, huge props for that one, Yeezy!), and he totally undermines Kris Jenner's baby peddling ways at every turn. It's pretty awesome. That said, I think he'll be a pretty swell dad. Dare I say that I think having a daughter will mature him beyond words. Kanye, don't disappoint!
That sucker is getting leveled, y'all! Well, maybe…if the preservationists don't keep the case going in our legal system. The house was recently purchased by the reality couple who wanted to tear down the dilapidated structure and build their dream home. At that point, the Miami Design Preservation League found a cause and have been blocking the Hochsteins' plans.
Just when I think Abby Lee Miller can't sink to a new low in favoritism and self-importance, I'm treated to a new episode of Dance Moms. Last night's show was insane!
Abby is on Cloud Nine after beating Cathy and her Candy Apples, but Kelly and Christi are still not speaking. Before the pyramid begins, Asia and Kristie 2.0 return. Asia finds herself at the bottom for missing last week due to a television gig. Nia is next for lagging just a tad behind in the group number. Kendall is called out for a lacking rehearsal, and Paige rounds out the bottom tier even though she garners Abby's praise.
MacKenzie finds herself in fourth place followed by Chloe and Maddie. Abby cannot say enough about the girls' flawless duet. Brooke takes the top spot–has that ever happened?–for dancing up with the senior troupe. The group number is entitled "Living with the Ribbon." Abby wants it to be a tribute number to all of the people who have been affected by cancer, and Melissa immediately gets choked up because she lost her mother to the disease.
Tina is upset because things seem to be changing between her and Tarz. He's too into work, and she feels totally unwanted. Tina feels stupid airing her issues, and she hates that Tarz doesn't seem to find her as attractive as he used to before they were married. He wants to scale back, but his inner workaholic isn't letting him.
John is hoping to show Kathryn that he is capable of manual labor by painting the nursery. She was raised by a handy father, while he grew up thinking that a true sign of success was the ability to hire people to do those things for you. Thankfully, before he can paint too much, there is a tanning salon emergency because the beds won't work. As Kathryn tries to fix the problem, John keeps shushing her. He's very dismissive of her part in the business. If I were Kathryn, John would have a paintbrush where the sun doesn't shine.
Whoa, Nellie! Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was full of bleeped out rants and blurred out bodies, so basically it was like any other Monday night!
Mimi Faustand Ariane are still vacationing in New York City on what has to be the least fun trip ever. While Mimi is over all things with K. Michelle, she is concerned that Ariane is straddling the fence. She needs to choose between Mimi and K. Michelle. Ariane assures Mimi of where her loyalty lies, and Mimi asks for her take on Nikko. Not beating around the bush, Ariane tells her friend that she believes Nikko is not very genuine, but she's happy as long as Mimi is happy.
Lil' Scrappy has called Shay in Erica Dixon's absence. She is happy to come by and give him a massage and chat about their relationship. The pair decides–much to Shay's chagrin–that sex ultimately ruined their friendship, and they'll have to cut out the "benefits" portion of their relationship. Of course, Scrappy makes this decision while rubbing on Shay in his bed. No one is shocked, are they?
We all know that Kim Kardashian loves a photo opportunity, and it makes her mother Kris Jenner oh so proud! Of course, now that Kim's with Kanye West, he's reigned in Kim in the photo famewhoring (to a small extent) realm.
The couple is still followed by the paparazzi as Kim models maternity wear, but what will happen once their daughter is born? While most tabloids will be vying for pics of the newborn, one magazine reportedly wants Kim for its cover. Not surprisingly, it's a gentlemen's read.
