When I think of wigs, I automatically think of Don’t Be Tardy’sKim Zolciak- Biermann, whose love of faux hair knows no bounds. While wigs are staple (and statement) pieces for all of the ladies on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim has been leading the charge since the first season. Of course, her reasons for needing a wig have changed drastically over the years, ranging from serious illness (nope) to a desire to mix up her look a bit (much more accurate). Additionally, when I think of Bravolebrities who are constantly making perplexing and contradictory statements, my brain goes directly to Kim as well (see previous statement).
While we’re on the topic of hair pieces and confusion, Kim has just announced her very own line of wigs. Wait, am I having déjà vu? I could have sworn she already had her own line of wigs. If I’m not mistaken, the development of said line was featured on her show. Right?!? Oh well…who can keep up with Kim?
If you have suffered through just one episode of MTV’s Floribama Shore then you realize what an insult it is to every true Jersey Shore fan. The network couldn’t leave well enough alone. You don’t mess with a classic!
Y’all, cheers to a fresh 2018! What better way to kick off the new year than with Kody Brown’s lustrous lion mane and TLC’s gift that keeps on giving…Sister Wives! As the kids age, the family has no shortage of cringe-worthy courting and mama drama to last well into the next decade. How exciting is that?!?! There are so many more children to marry off or alienate. Meri and Janelle have yet to run screaming from the cul-de-sac compound. I still haven’t figured out what concoction of happy pills are in Christine’s medicine cabinet. Endless story lines. Endless.
Christine is fixing a feast as the Browns prepare to meet Tony’s family. Kody and Christine are nervous because Tony’s parents speak very little English. In fact, Christine is in full blown panic mode because she didn’t publicly accept Tony when she first met him. What will Tony’s mother think after Christine initially disapproved of Mykelti’s relationship with her son? Of course, now Christine welcomes Tony with open arms, but still…yikes. Tony admits that his mom is freaking out too. It is nerve racking to meet such a big family! Christine jokes that Tony believes Kody has four wives so he can relax while they do all the work. Wait, are we sure he’s kidding?
While I’m pretty certain that I couldn’t be around Siggy Flicker for more than a few minutes in real life, I think Margaret Josephs is a straight up hoot who doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously and has infiltrated the group rather successfully. If her impersonation of Siggy wasn’t hilarious enough, her take on the first day of the retreat is just as good. Enjoy this throwback while you get ready for tonight’s latest Posche Fashion Show drama!
Of course, Kandi Burruss usually tries to stay out of the fray when it comes to the ladies’ drama, but thanks to a nasty rumor last year started by Phaedra Parks and perpetuated by Porsha Williams, she hasn’t succeeded as much as she’d like. This season, with Phaedra gone, Kandi is doing her best to avoid Porsha without making the other women uncomfortable. However, this week, NeNe came for Porsha and stood up for Kandi all in the same screaming match.
Real Housewives of Dallas, y’all. I need some kind of conspiracy theorist’s chart riddled with news clippings, string, and photographs to keep up with all the alliance hopping…or at the very least a decent Pinterest inspired bullet journal to follow all of the craziness. Season two created a conundrum for me. As annoying as I found most all of the cast in some ways, they were all likable in other ways, save for Kameron Westcott’s forced valley girl dialect. LeeAnne Locken was the clear villain last year, but she showed true moments of vulnerability when paired with her best friend, newbie D’Andra Simmons…until she kept threatening people’s life with her JUST HANDS. Sheesh.
Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman’s reconciliation was a moment of realness, the likes of which Bravo viewers haven’t seen since the early seasons of RHOC–you know, when the franchise was less about drama and more about real life. Being the new franchise on the block, Dallas delivered a bit more reality and a bit less manufactured shock factor. Unfortunately, their reality was all shock factor, and Brandi hopes she’s learned from it, at least a little.
Season two of Real Housewives of Dallas flew by in a whirlwind of funnel cakes, death threats, pink dog food and constant eye rolls and insults regarding class and zip codes. Looking back, I’m not really sure how I feel about it all, but newcomer D’Andra Simmons does. In her latest blog, she addresses her ride or die loyalty to Just Hands while calling out the “brunch bashers” for their bad behavior.
She begins, “We have come to an end of the season, and I have to say, I am a little melancholy. Luckily we still have a drama filled reunion, but it feels so strange that I won’t be rushing home from work or an event staring at the TV screen at 9PM CST watching The Real Housewives of Dallas with everyone and reacting to the Twitter feed. It has been a crazy fun-filled and rewarding ride. I started this season not knowing what to expect from this journey. It was rough at times, but in the end I am truly glad I decided to take this plunge. My year ended with so many blessings and new opportunities, even in the midst of so much tension. My friendship with LeeAnne Locken has remained strong, although, I never questioned it from the get-go. I found my place among a group of ladies that are still trying to find themselves, and I never lost my identity. I stayed true to who I am. Love me or hate me, I am always the same person, whether that is on camera or in private. My mom and I faced our conflicts head on, and I was able to prove to her that I am ready and able to take over the family business. I now have a company of my own and a bright future full of promise that is truly mine to create. My bestie is finally engaged, and I am excited to help her plan her wedding and a few parties in between. Unfortunately, it looks like our guest list may be shrinking!” Um, you think?
In her blog for this week’s episode, Peggy describes the most frightening experience to date, and she’s not referring to Shannon’s bed head after a seventeen hour plane ride or even that fermented shark blob that had half her co-stars gagging up a lung. Before delving into the terrifying, Peggy focuses on the positive…and the obvious (read: traveling to Iceland from the OC, generally). She begins, “Our trip to Iceland began with a long plane ride. We were greeted with cold weather and in anticipation of Orange County girls being unprepared for the obvious, Lydia planned a shopping trip to head off any problems. Girls and shopping is a classic combination which can bring out the best in every situation. As such, Vicki and Tamra started to reconnect. You could see they had a bond. They understood each other and hopefully, things will get better.” Why yes, it is a long flight. And no, none of you packed appropriately.
