If you'd told me two years ago that Bravo's Real Housewives of Miami franchise would have lasted beyond that horrendous first season, I would never have believed you. Now, the show is entering its third season, and despite several cast shake-ups, the ladies of South Beach are still bringing the drama.
One of the women who is constantly at the center of the gossip is model Joanna Krupa. Not only does she like to spar with her cast members, she's constantly on and off with her fiance Romain Zago. After some speculation of another break-up after Joanna went ringless to Bravo's Upfronts, she is setting the record straight regarding their relationship.
Oh goodness. Something tells me that Kim Kardashian isn't going to be purchasing Ray J's newest sings on iTunes. The "rapper" is more famous for his personal life than any music he's ever made…although using the term "famous" may be a bit of a stretch. If you recall, Ray J was Kimmie's co-star in the sex video that many attribute to starting her career in famewhoring. Even though the pair broke up years ago, Ray J is apparently using his relationship with Kim to generate some buzz for his new song "I Hit It First." Classy title!
In fact, many are speculating that the cover art for the single is a blurry picture of a bikini clad Kim, and if that isn't fabulous enough, the "leaked" lyrics are a hoot. While there's a chance the rhymes may be fake, they are absolutely brilliant because they're so awesomely bad.
I am not sure if I know any family that loves famewhoring and lawsuits more than those krazy Kardashians. I think they'd literally shrivel up if they weren't constantly surrounded by paparazzi and tabloid fodder and legal pleadings and vapidness. In the divorce that has drawn out longer than the actual marriage, Kris Humphries will finally have his day in court. However, Kim Kardashian won't be there…she's got perfume to promote, y'all! Priorities. Duh.
In other Kardashian/Jenner news, the family that fames together files claims together (sorry, that was bad). Remember when Robert Kardashian's widow sold his diary? Yeah, that's coming back to bite her in the arse.
Her ex-husband threw a drink in her face. Her ex-best friend's pal slapped her at a Derby party. Heck, her ex-best friend even took off her shoes and ran across a dining room table at her like a crazed banshee! It's certainly not easy being Jennifer Williams, that's for sure…
The former Basketball Wives star has had her fair share of drama, and since dropping her lawsuit against former bestie Evelyn Lozada's slapping assistant friend, Jennifer has flown relatively under the radar. Of course, once a reality star, always a reality star, so we may be seeing more of the aloof make-up maven in the future.
It's been a big few weeks for Real Housewives of Atlanta gossip…some good, some not so good. While the Bravo franchise had the worthy distinction of being the network's most watched show to date, newbie Porsha Stewart faced the news that husband Kordell was filing for divorce. In light of this terrible situation, Porsha did what any good housewife would do. She put on a brave face at the Bravo Upfronts presentation. Kudos to her for trying to maintain some normalcy…or at least what's normal in the life of a reality star!
Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks is looking forward to baby boy number two with husbandApollo Nida. Putting the much talked about Bootygate aside, the lawyer/mortician/over-the-top personality took some time to chat about her latest endeavors…mainly her expanding family. Let's hear the good stuff first!
Last night's Duck Dynasty was rather risque for Robertson standards. There was bathroom humor, shrinkage concerns, and Miss Kay got super sassy talking about the birds and the bees. Willie fancied himself an action hero, while Jase took great pleasure in ribbing his brother. Si has never been colder than he was in 'Nam, and Phil just shook his head at the insanity of it all. Good times, for sure!
Willie and Jase are touring a giant Bass Pro Shop after being offered a large space to sell their Duck Commander products. While Willie is trying to work on a deal, Jase is hoping to score free stuff and tossing out horrible neon laden ideas. Is it just me, or is Jase a Si in training? The guys decide that a blown up photograph of the Robertson boys is just what the space needs.
At the warehouse, Martin and Godwin are playing Go Fish (don't they know that it's super hard to play that with just two people?) and Si is watching Jep play Donkey Kong on a Gameboy. Jase wonders why the boys are being so old school with their game choices, but Si reminds him that the simplest of games are the most fun…Kick the Can, horseshoes, lawn darts–if you are fortunate enough to actually survive a game of deadly lawn darts! Willie arrives and shares the news that the boys will be doing a photo shoot for their Bass Pro Shop space. After major eyerolling from Jase, Jep offers to take the pictures so he can 1) test out his new camera; and 2) avoid being memorialized forever in whatever craziness Willie has in mind. The photo session is set for Saturday–oh, wait…Jep isn't available on Saturday. He has his dodge ball league play-offs. Si likes the sound of that. He loves the idea of the duck, dive, and jive!
Kandi Burruss has been working on The Kandi Factory for what seems like ages. Her show will follow the singer/songwriter/reality star as she mentors up and coming artists who are recording their first single and creating their own music video. It seems very fitting. Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also getting her own show…and she's basically Atlanta's answer to Judge Judy. Also fitting.
Who should feel the need to weigh in on Phaedra's new series? Why it's none other than fomer (booted) Atlanta housewifeSheree Whitfield!
There has been a lot of rumors swirling around the upcoming season, and filming has already been pushed back once to address casting concerns. Now that the RHONY cameras start rolling in a few weeks with a projected summer premiere, many are starting to buzz about just who will make the final cut.
