Well isn't this a fun twist? But aren't all the twists tongue in cheek fun when discussing reality star Bethenny Frankel?
If you recall, before she and Jason Hoppy filed for divorce, Bethenny was all about racing out to L.A. to set down roots for her new daytime talk show. It seems that Bethenny has recently had a change of heart, and she wants to film Bethenny in the city that made her a household name in the first place, thanks to Bravo. A woman's allowed to change her mind, right?
Oh good gracious. Remember when photographer and personal friend of Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Webercompared the iconic movie star to Kim Kardashian? Yeah, I still don't believe it either. However, it would explain the picture that Kris Jenner just posted to Instagram of her daughter with the caption "Wow #stunning". I will say the majority of the comments weren't very complimentary, but I think anyone is going to get the same treatment if they start comparing themselves to such huge celebrity from Hollywood's golden era. Just ask Lindsay Lohan!
Of course, when Kim isn't trying to forge a resemblance between herself and Liz, she's reminding us that she's pregnant…just in case any of you thought this was a misguided and awful publicity stunt. Surely no one is alleging Kim would do something so low, right? 😉
I'm starting to wonder if a storm is brewing with the ladies of Mob Wives. So far, everyone has been very civil. Renee Graziano and Drita D'avanzo decided to take out their stress through good ol' fashioned physical exercise, while Big Ang gets enough of a work out holding up her giant jugs. Ramona Rizzo and Karen Gravano were actually cordial to Dave's new girlfriend. Of course, Love Majewski still wants to beat Carla Facciolo's behind, but the pair has yet to meet. Where was Carla last night, anyway?
Last night begins as Ramona and Karen are heading to Karen's brother's storage facility to see if there is any evidence which would allow Karen's father's case to be reopened. There are boxes of trial transcripts and taped conversations. This is not going to be an easy task.
Renee shares with son A.J. that she's going to get an attack dog. He wants to slap her when he hears the pooch could cost upwards of twenty thousand dollars. A.J. thinks that his mom's paranoia are humorous. He wants his mom to lighten up and relax. She's hoping that they can do some mother-son bonding in a Krav Maga class. Not only will it allow the pair to spend time together, it will be another outlet for Renee's aggression. Yeah, that's not going to happen. A.J. tells his mother he isn't going along for the ride as she channels her inner Jackie Chan. Renee then practices some of her wrestling techniques on A.J. in a cute family moment. He really seems like a good kid.
My mother always told me that good things happen to good people. When I would complain that the mean girl always seemed to get the dream guy or the amazing job, she would remind me that mean people are often miserable no matter what successes they have. She'd say we should feel bad for those who are so hateful and be thankful to have love in our hearts and not be one of those people. Snarking on reality stars aside, I think it's sound advice…and she was right! Just look at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
Brandi Glanville has struggled to get back on her feet after a nasty and public divorce, and she's tried to be as straightforward and honest (if not totally brash) when it comes to her life. Her frankness and sharp tongue have proven to be Brandi's greatest allies as she gets the last laugh on her haters. Likewise, Adrienne Maloof, who had me fooled season one, has channeled her inner mean girl, and it's not very becoming.
Not surprisingly, Lisa is approaching the reality competition like she does everything else in her life…with hard work and her biting wit. Oh, and Giggy of course! She'll be dancing with new pro Gleb Savchenko, and from the looks of things, Lisa is fierce as ever!
Viewers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have never felt indifferent towards the resident duck-lipped, wine swilling misfit of Rodeo Drive. No, I'm not talking about Kim Richards. Taylor Armstrong always garners strong feelings from fans of the show. The woman once packed herself in a suitcase for goodness' sake! However, this season, Taylor, while still every bit the train wreck of seasons past, has certainly come into her own.
Taylor is no longer kissing the arses of her wealthy co-stars, and she's even taken to making fun of herself on Watch What Happens Live. Now, she's waxing poetic about her new beau who, as you all remember, was her married attorney John Bluher. Things are looking up for Ms. Hughes!
She's a screaming mess most of the time who likes to play drill sergeant with her pupils. Sometimes it seems that she spends more time at war with her dancer's mothers than actually teaching her girls how to dance. She tends to take great pleasure in trying to pit preteen girls against one another for the sake of healthy competition. Whoever could I be talking about? Y'all know! It's Abby Lee Miller of Lifetime's Dance Moms!
Abby has been repeatedly criticized for her questionable teaching methods, but she does appear to get results. Her dancers are incredibly talented. While she has never danced professionally, Abby started the Abby Lee Dance Company when she was just fourteen years old. That explains even more some of the history between her and Kelly!
Let's take a quick poll, shall we? What would you rather watch–the original Love & Hip Hop or the astonishingly crazy, can't look away train wreck that is Love & Hip Hop Atlanta? I don't even need to tally the votes. VH1 needs to learn that if it's going to air a scripted, polished soap opera while calling it a reality show, we need to see more craziness a la Joseline. Am I right?
While most viewers are politely watching this season, I can't help but think that they are doing so out of respect for the new member of the L&HH franchise. If we're going to watch fake reality television, the network should be decent enough to give us more ridiculous drama. Is that asking too much? Apparently not…read on!
