Bless her sweet little heart…and then grab Real Houswives of New York'sAviva Dreschera muzzle. Sometimes I cannot believe the things that come out of this woman's mouth. After President Obama was sworn in for his second term, Aviva had some suggestions for our nation's leader…and his wife.
Aviva, an Obama supporter, is comparing slavery to those jailed for selling drugs. Yes, that's right. She thinks those who have been arrested for possession of any illegal substance are being treated like slaves. I can't imagine a more skewed or inaccurate comparison. Has she read anything at all about American history? It's like comparing the family tree of Alex Haley to that of Lindsay Lohan, and I think it's shameful. Also, she wants Michelle Obama to grow out her bangs. Who is this woman?
Did you really think things were going to be hunky dory betweenJoanna Krupaand Adriana de Moura after that insane Real Housewives of Miami reunion? The women first battled things out at that infamous lingerie party, then in the blogs, then in the tabloids, and once again in a two part reunion special with Andy Cohen. They must be exhausted!
It's no surprise that the ladies aren't going to be besties on the next season of RHOM. In fact, Joanna doesn't think that the two can ever repair what little relationship they had (I'm hesitant to call it a friendship!) no matter what occurs in season three.
On last night's Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller was just as out of control as usual. If she could get any uglier to these girls, I'm not sure I want to see it! The moms, thankfully, were relatively calm, and the girls, as always, were totally sweet and supportive to each other.
Abby reveals the pyramid. On the bottom is Chloe, which Christi is actually okay with for once. Chloe did forget her choreography. Nia and MacKenzie join her on the bottom…Nia for not taking corrections well, and MacKenzie for messing up the red carpet at the beginning of the previous group routine. Abby says she will never forgive MacKenzie for ruining the beginning of the group number..you remember, the one she never had the opportunity to practice before that moment. Dramatic much? She will not be invited to participate in group numbers going forward. Paige rounds out the lowest tier of the pyramid. Maddie is on the second level, and Abby mocks her for having Sophia's hairstyle but not her intensity. Kendall joins Maddie on the second tier. An absent Sophia takes the top spot. Melissa now knows what the other mothers feel like when their daughters are belittled.
The upcoming competition will be in Greensboro, North Carolina. Kelly brings up the fact that Brooke is not on the pyramid, and she wants to know if Brooke is still on the team. Abby is upset that Brooke didn't practice on the weekend after she was kicked out of the group number last minute, and she won't let Brooke participate this week either. MacKenzie is allowed to block out Sophia's part in the group number since Sophia is in Los Angeles filming a movie. Of course, Abby loves that. The dance is about immigration. MacKenzie and Paige score solos, while Maddie and Kendall will have a duet. The girls are excited, but Melissa is not. She's not used to Maddie not having a solo.
We are now officially ten episodes into this season of Teen Mom 2, and I worry that there is no end in sight. All of the girls seem to be mirroring each other's behavior. Jenelle Evans moves, then Leah Messer moves. Jenelle drops out of school, Leah drops out of school. Kailyn Lowry gets a new place, Chelsea Houska wants a fenced-in backyard. I guess I should be glad that they are all pretty interchangeable, right?
Kailyn has decided against moving to Texas to be fair to Jo. He is excited to hear that she plans to stay in Pennsylvania. She informs him that when her lease is up, she plans to look for another home about twenty minutes away. Does Jo minds driving twenty minutes back and forth to see his son? Um, I think Jo is glad that he doesn't have to travel back and forth to Texas! While Jo has Isaac, Kailyn decides to go bowling with Gigi and some of her friends. Kailyn is paired up with Gigi's friend Javi, and she thinks he's really cute…cute enough to marry?
Kardashian gossip is getting hard to keep up with…that's for sure. Is Bruce Jenner fighting dirty when it comes to divorcing Kris Jenner? Would he potentially purposely hurt his step-children in the process by outing Khloe Kardashian's "real" father? (I still think that's a silly rumor though). There is so much to speculate when it comes to this family, and heck, I wouldn't put it past Kris to have planted all of these stories herself to keep her family's names in the media.
Of course, she's not the only one who is getting her name out there. Kanye West's ex Brooke Crittendon is speaking out about his relationship with Kim Kardashian. The AAAM (aspiring actress and model) dated the tiny rapper from 2004 to 2006, but now she's coming forward in an interview about Kimye is so perfect for one another. Let's start with that!
I'm still not sure how I feel about this new group VH1 has pulled together for the new season of Love & Hip Hop. Some seem incredibly boring, while others (cough, coughErica Mena) are too over the top. Speaking of, Erica was still keeping it classy on last night's episode. She's meeting with Lore'l to discuss they're beef from last week. Erica doesn't like how she ganged up with Rich Dollaz. Lore'l doesn't understand why Erica is so proud of her craziness. Erica tries to pretend that the record was Lore'l's idea, and then she claims to have asked Lore'l to make her relevant.
Consequence is a practicing Muslim, and he and Jen Bayer are raising Caden to be Muslim, but Jen isn't sure she's ready to jump on board. Cons wants the family to pray together, and Jen hopes that they can expose Caden to some of the Christian traditions she participated in as a child. Religion is very important to Cons, and he is counting on Jen to start learning about Islam and his spirituality.
Yandy Smith's little Amir is so precious. Mendeecees and Yandy discuss their relationship, and he is proud of himself for curing his wandering eye. He wants to be a family man now. Mendeecees wants the family to move to a bigger place, but Yandy doesn't want to move because her mom lives upstairs. She thinks her living situation is stable, and Mendeecees has been anything but until recently. Yandy wants to make sure that they are on the right track before they take that next step.
Last night began as Renee received a threatening letter from her ex warning her not to turn AJ against him or speak ill of him to their son. Understandably freaked out, she goes to see Ramona at the hair salon. Ramona can't get over the content of the letter, and is appalled that he was even able to get a stamp in jail to send it in the first place. He even writes "this is importanat to your future." Yeah, I'd say that is pretty threatening!
Love's mother reveals that Love was so horrible as a teenager that she called her "Satan's spawn." Love has had a string of mobster boyfriends, and she has broken so many noses that she had to stop counting. Karen arrives to remenisce with the mother-daughter duo, and Love reveals that she''d love to settle down and start a family, but how do you tell your husband that you've shot and stabbed your exes? That's a tough call.
Carla and Ang meet up, and Carla shares that Joe is moving in with his girlfriend. Carla isn't too keen on the idea of having Raquel in such a motherly role with the twin. Big Ang is a tad peeved that Carla ditched her Botox party. Carla didn't want it to be uncomfortable since no one really likes her at the moment…she's got that, right, doesn't she? Ang informs Carla that none of the women have a problem with her, and she wishes that Carla would be more supportive of Renee's efforts to get clean. Carla believes that Renee is totally unstable thanks so all of her pill popping, and she's done with Renee.
The original Basketball Wives are gearing up for a spring premiere, and Tami Roman promises that it won't disappoint. The show, which isn't even about actual wives anymore, is often criticized for the women's outlandish and violent behavior. However, this fifth season is hoping for calmer cast. I won't hold my breath.
Shaunie O'Neal pretends to be above the drama, but she loves to stir that pot and play puppeteer to Tami and wine throwingEvelyn Lozada. This season the women plan to show more of their family lives and careers in an effort to do some damage control from last season's trainwreck.
