Can you believe that we've finally come to the finale of this season's Basketball Wives LA? I feel like we've been watching the Jackie Christie Show for eons! Am I right? Needless to say, last night's show resolved nada, so we have to wait on pins and needles for the reunion!
We're back on Borboun Street, y'all, and Draya Michele is hella hungover, so she misses out on the cooking lesson with Laura Govan, Brooke Bailey, Jackie, Bambi, Malaysia Pargo, and Gloria Govan. I'm sure that Draya planned it. Jackie is visibly upset because she has just received a text message from her daughter regarding Laura's conversation with said offspring. I can't tell if Jackie is wearing a make-shift beret or some kind of homemade sock hat. Malaysia and Bambi are quick to wade in Jackie's drama pool. Bambi is appalled at Laura's behavior. Can someone please buy her a box set of last season's DVDs?
Over lunch, Jackie questions Laura about her intentions with her daughter. The other ladies take their cues and leave the table so Jackie and Laura can hash out their differences. Laura maintains a poker face while Jackie pleads her case about Chantal. Laura admits that she originally spoke to Chantal to discredit Jackie, but after chatting with Jackie's daughter, she realized her anger towards Jackie was misplaced. It was during her conversation with Chantal that Laura realized that she needed change her intentions. Her master plan was to bring down Jackie, but after speaking with Chantal, she knew that revenge wasn't the answer. Jackie is unsure of how to take Laura's confession.
The teens on last night's Sister Wives got a bit of a reality check. Maddie, Logan, and Aspyn are volunteering for an organization that helps families who want to leave the polygamist lifestyle. They are traveling back to Utah to paint a house for a family to move into after leaving the LDS community. Kody Brown and his hair hope that Aspyn will remember that plural marriage is a good thing. Christine isn't on board with this trip because she wonders if there are times when people are are "helped" when they really don't want to necessarily leave.
Kody and the wives are optimistic that the teens will remember how different their family is from the families they are about to see. Maddie can't fathom the abuse that some people in plural marriages suffer, and Aspyn is worried that she won't be able to relate to the victims. Right away they meet a polygamist escapee Kollene who readily admits she wants to take out some of her anger on the Browns. Kody is upset that Warren Jeffs has painted his lifestyle in such a bad light.
Give me a break! I am so over fake drama in the housewives franchises! If what I'm writing is true, Pinot Singer has truly lost what tiny bit of respect I had for her. On the flip side, I think that Aviva Drescher has proven herself to be slightly cray, so she could totally be making up the secret truce that she apparently has with Ramona.
Aviva has been awfully chatty lately about her friendship with Ramona when the Bravo cameras aren't rolling for Real Housewives of New York. If you recall, the women were at an impasse at the reunion, with Ramona unable to forgive and forget being called a white trash alcoholic who enabled Sonja Morgan's bad behavior. However, if you believe what Aviva's been saying, the ladies are practically a-okay behind the scenes.
Seeing that I love all things Law & Order: SVU, I love Ice-T. Coco? She likes to post bootylicious pictures on Twitter that make me slightly uncomfortable. However, when I watch Ice Loves Coco, I truly believe that Ice loves Coco…and she loves him. After all, they have been married for ten years…which is like a decade in Hollywood years. ;)
That said, Ice and Coco are on the rocks thanks to Coco's penchant for tweeting pictures. While Ice likes her butt shots, he doesn't like seeing pictures of his wife snuggled up on another man. Can you blame him? Awkward! What should one do when saddled with inappropriate Twit pics? He should take to Twitter to vent his frustrations, of course!
If you've been watching anything on MTV, chances are you've seen previews for it's new reality show Buckwild. It's like Jersey Shore, but with rednecks…and a lot of dangerous looking antics. I think it would make Honey Boo Boo proud.
Remember when Italian Americans and the citizens of New Jersey had such an issue with our favorite GTLers? Well, West Virginians and Southerners are feeling the same way about Buckwild. I have to say though that all of this controversy is making me want to watch the insanity…even though, as a Southerner, I should be totally offended.
I mean, I don't doubt that Andy Cohen and his minions select ladies who are going to bring the drama and then puts them in situations which are going to create it to the umpteenth degree. The ladies of Beverly Hills are no different. Taylor Armstrong alone brings enough dramatics for a Broadway production.
We resume the Jersey Shore with Vinny trying to make amends with Snooki's fiance Jionni…at his future son's baby shower no less. It's super awkward. Jionni questions Vinny about joking that Vin is the actual dad. The conversation is seamless, and all is good in the land of Jionni and Vin. Really? I thought that MTV would have sprung for more drama. Thankfully Jionni's insecurities don't get in the way of a bottle chugging contest. Rawn wins. Who is shocked?
Snooki loves unwrapping baby clothes, champagne, and wine, typical baby shower gifts. Jenni asks Jionni to come around more often which basically calls him out for not being present up to this point. Snooki is just thrilled for a baby day. While she still can't look at Mike, she's excited about all of her presents. Mike is planning his entrance for when he can finally make amends with Snooki. After a Mike-Snooki video montage, Sitch heads to Nicole's apartment. I'm unsure as to whether this is part of his twelve step program. Yikes.
I believe that in response to Honey Boo Boo being an example of the dumbing down of our country, it was Bryan who replied that Twitter was actually even worse. Truer words, Bryan, truer words. Now Real Housewives of New Jersey'sCaroline Manzo has come under fire on the social media site.
Caroline was a recent co-host on Anderson Live and she shared her experiences of getting death threats in the Twitterverse from some pretty rabid fans. Seriously? Don't people realize that they don't actually know the stars of these shows? I highly doubt many of them would give any of us a second thought. Not that they aren't decent people, but they've got their own stuff to worry about! Anyhoo, some Caroline haters have been sending her less than stellar messages via Twitter, and she wants to remind us all that–breaking news!–it's just a television show!
