Apparently, having all the money you want, the reality fame you desire, and the plastic surgery you covet isn't always easy for housewives of the Bravo franchise. Just ask Real Housewives of Miami'sLisa Hochstein who is still battling it out with a preservationist society over her Florida dream home. The grass isn't always greener, y'all! 🙂
While the majority of her face and body is fake, I think Lisa's personality is as real and as sweet as it gets for these shows. She and her surgeon husband have been at odds with local groups regarding a house on Star Island, and I feel badly that she's being put through the wringer to keep the home they've purchased.
I know what you're all thinking, and we're totally on the same page. It's been far too long since we've had the pleasure of watching Kody Brown's hair blow in the wind as he traverses the roads of Nevada in his nifty convertible.
Oh Laura Govan, please try to do everything you can to stay slightly relevant in light of the rumored cancelation of Basketball Wives: LA. The former reality star is posing for a photo shoot where she sets a wedding dress on fire in a symbolic protest regarding society's views on single women being less important than married women. Ohhhh, deep!
Of course, Laura is engaged to NBA player Gilbert Arenas who is the father of her four children, so she's kind of straddling the fence between single and married while trying to raise awareness about how flammable satin is women's roles.
He and partner Peta Murgatroyd competed for eight weeks on the show, but Monday they found themselves at the bottom of the leader board thanks to a measly 42 out of possible 60 points for his dancing. It's all good though, because now Sean will have more time to spend with the girl he will spend the rest of his life with his fiance Catherine Giudici.
It's a boy (although we already knew that)! The stork has officially visited everyone's favorite genteel Southern attorney with the booty of a donkey. That's right! Phaedra Parks of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta has given birth to a bouncing baby boy.
After sharing their pregnancy joy back in December, Phaedra and husband Apollo Nida welcomed their second child this afternoon in Atlanta, and both the reality star and the new addition are doing great!
It's a hard life when you're Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Kyle Richards. Doing a reality show for Bravo isn't easy, and being put in the middle of your friends' drama (when you've never wanted to be in the center of it–EVER) makes things difficult.
Thankfully, Kyle has learned to cope with her feelings by talking to any media outlet that will listen. For Kyle, the reunion was especially contentious…one might even call it "torture." Well, Kyle calls it torture, so there's that. Woe is Splits!
The executive producer of Dance Moms, Jeff Collins, is back to host the crazy tell-all that is the Dance Moms Season 3 reunion. Bless him. He thinks he can wrangle in Abby Lee Miller and the drama fueled moms who trust Abby to teach their daughters. He looks heavily medicated…as he should be for the task. It's part one of two-part reunion, y'all!
A hoarse Abby is first to join Jeff on stage. Does she ever have a voice? Jeff brings up some of her more memorable altercations this season…like when she was yelled at by a Candy Apple dance dad and got into it with Kathy. Abby is quick to remind Jeff that she was "verbally assaulted" by said dance dad and "physically assaulted" by Kathy. Semantics? Eh, it's a tough call. He wants to do word association, and Abby is quick to call Kelly "foolish" and Christi "evil." Melissa is "sly like a fox" while Kathy's purse (the one from the aforementioned assault) is "heavy, sharp, hurtful" among other things. In the green room, the moms play their own game.
When questioned about Melissa's new loyalty to the mothers this season, Abby cites disappointment in Melissa putting her need to be accepted above her daughters' success. Melissa joins Abby on stage to talk about her wedding. She admits that she wanted the ceremony filmed for the show, but she respected her husband's wishes to keep their day private. As the audience asks questions, the other moms are reacting backstage. Even the reunion is scripted! Geez Louise!
So apparently I wasn't the only one watching Bravo's newest reality show Newlyweds: The First Year. I had 999,999 of my closest friends watching with me…give or take a few!
The series, which follows four couples through their first year of marriage, premiered on Monday night with three of the four pairs saying their "I dos" in lavish ceremonies. The show promises to document the ups and downs of family, finances, sex, and the major adjustment that is the first year of marriage.
