We're back after a one week hiatus of Flipping Out due to election day, and Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, Zoila Chavez, Gage Edward, and crew are just as out there as ever. That's why we love them, right? Not to mention, Grandma Patty was front and center in this episode, so that alone made it amazing.
Last night's episode started with Jeff using his infamous mask to scare the bejeezus out of Andrew and Zoila. If Andrew had jumped any higher, he would have hit his head on the chandelier. Zoila comforts him, while Jenni scolds Jeff. Gage thinks that the Andy/Jeff dynamic isn't appropriate for the work place. At Gramercy, Gage, Jenni, Jeff, and Andrew are looking into planting trees. Now that he's listed the house, one of the couples from a showing said that there wasn't enough privacy. Gage is still pouting over Gramercy, and he's wearing on my nerves as the season progresses. I adored him at the beginning.
Jeff decides to prank call his grandmother, pretending he's a roofer, but Patty totally hangs up on him. He and Jenni are on their way to see how her renovation is proceeding. Jeff feels responsible for taking care of Patty, and he wants to discuss with her the fact that one day she's going to need a caretaker. He really wants her to move to Spring Oak (do it, do it!), but she's not entertaining that idea. Patty is such a spitfire, you can't help but love her.
After quite a bitter divorce battle, it's nice that Adrienne has something to focus on, even if it is an overly tacky handbag line. Bless her heart. Adrienne sported one of her new bags to a recent Lakers game, and she tweeted a picture of the pocketbook, commenting, "Took one of my new Adrienne Maloof handbags out for a spin last night at the Lakers @SacramentoKings game!"
I can only imagine how much Adrienne is charging for these initialed wonders, but she's certainly giving Gretchen Christine a run for the money in ridiculousness!

I'm sorry, but I'm kind of at a loss for words with this one. People aren't really this stupid are they? I mean, Chad Ochocinco Johnson found another idiot to date him? What gives with these women? Not only does Chad have a new girlfriend, but he apparently wants to marry her AND she's feuding with his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada on Twitter. Okay, so maybe that last part isn't all that shocking.
Given that Chad and Evelyn met on Twitter, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they are both still lurking in one another's Twitter feeds. However, given the fact that the world watched how Chad treated Evelyn on Basketball Wives, then saw their marriage crumble after an alleged head butt, it's a wonder that anyone would want to get mixed up with either of these two. Add in Chad's serial cheating and both of their penchants for violence, and any sane person should be staying as far away from them as possible!
I don’t even know what to say about the fact that train wrecks of Teen Mom 2 are back for another season. Part of me roots for these girls like no tomorrow, but the other part of me wants them to get their shiz together off camera and step up to the plate. Regardless, Jenelle Evans, Kailyn Lowry, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Messer (now Calvert) are back for yet another round.
Right off the bat, we’re reminded of the tension (for lack of a better word) between Jenelle and mom Barbara. Jenelle has broken up with Kieffer Delp while completing a rehab stint for her marijuana addiction, and she’s been diagnosed as bi-polar. She plans to stay on the straight and narrow. I’ll keep my laughing to a minimum. Jenelle shares that she and her mother are getting along well, and her attorney Dustin Sullivan calls to remind her that one passed drug test isn’t a victory. She needs to remain on the straight and narrow.
Chelsea recaps her past with the always awesome and supportive Adam Lind. While Chelsea appreciates that her mom is willing to help her with daughter Aubree’s childcare, she hates that her job at the tanning bed keeps her from spending so much time with her kid. Chelsea reveals to her mom that Adam may move in over the weekend, although they aren’t quite back together…at all. He’s just being nice. Shocking, I know!
Last night’s Basketball Wives LA was no different from anything we’ve seen this season thus far. I am just waiting (as I’m sure you are) for some kind of shocking revelation or a giant shoe to drop. We all know Jackie Christie is going to continue to be the focus of the show. Heck, even Laura Govan’s evil ways are starting to lose their drama. What are we to do, VH1?
Laura is meeting Jackie’s daughter Chantel. Chantel tells Laura that Jackie warned her about meeting with her given Jackie thinks Laura has bad intentions. Chantel couldn’t care less. She knows her mother is fame hungry and only cares about appearance. Laura starts to regret her plan to intervene, but then she brings up Chantel’s sister as being too black. Jackie tried to pit her daughters against one another. Growing up, the girls couldn’t even speak because of the things that her mother instilled in them. Chantel felt that she was the placed in a situation as a younger sister where she shouldn’t have been. Laura is in over her head. She just wanted beef against Jackie…she didn’t expect to get a horrid family situation like she did.
Malaysia Pargo, Brooke Bailey, and Laura meet for froyo. Laura and Malaysia share their trip to Seattle with Jackie. Laura tells Brooke that Jackie was calling her oldest daughter too dark and overweight. Malaysia revisits Brooke and Bambi’s rift and hopes that they can make amends at an upcoming 80’s roller skating event.
The scariest part of the ordeal is that doctors still don't know what is wrong with Brandi. After suffering from chest pains and finding a benign lump under her arm, there is still no diagnosis for the brash mother of two. While the hospital trip doesn't seem to be slowing Brandi down–she's still going to be on Watch What Happens Live tonight–it still has to be unnerving to have such a health scare.
Ashley and J.P. will be following in the footsteps of the original Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter. Not only are they getting married, but they're doing so in a two hour televised ABC special. Is that part of their contract? #rhetoricalquestions Also, we have some spoilers, so if you don't want to skip ahead 9+ episode's of Sean's Bachelor season and make your own betting pools, consider yourself forewarned.
I never thought I'd be Team Silex about anything, and I mean ANYTHING. However, when you have to choose between somewhat creepy Silex and uber-creepy Dourtney, what else can you do but side with former Real Housewives of New YorkstarsAlex McCord and Simon van Kempen? Of course, I'm talking about a feud that started out on VH1's Couples Therapy, so perhaps that is where I first went astray. I am addicted to this insanity, and I'm not proud of it.
Joining Silex in the therapy sessions, at least up until a week or so ago, was everyone's favorite May-December romantics 52-year-old "actor" Doug Hutchison and his 18-year-old wife Courtney Stodden. I don't have to tell y'all that she was sixteen when the pair married and seventeen when Couples Therapy filmed. Due to child labor laws, Courtney wasn't allowed to film as much as the grown-ups and couldn't stay in a bedroom with her hubby.
If you've been tuning into the train wreck (and I know you secretly have!), you know that Courtney's parade of bikini tops as shirts, Lucite stripper platforms, and belts that she tried to pass off as skirts had the other couples up in arms. Her wardrobe was deemed a major distraction, and Dr. Jenn imposed a strict dress code. Courtney was forced to wear things that covered her belly and didn't flash her bits. The passive aggressive Courtney adhered to this dress code for one day, although she clearly shopped for her conservative clothing at Hoochies 'R Us. From that point, things continued to go down hill for Dourtney. No amount of gum smacking, eye rolling, or hair twirling could save them!
