We all know that Bravo manufactures story lines, so I guess I shouldn't be too shocked to learn that now it's manufacturing faces, too. After all, that is the gossip surrounding a certain Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star…
Kim Richards doesn't mingle often with the her counterparts as she works to maintain her sobriety, and many viewers find her story line boring. What better way to spice it up than to put her in a situation that would cause viewers to be concerned about the possibility of her falling off the wagon? Well played, Bravo. Well played. Oh, and by the way, thanks for paying…
Season 2 of Shahs of Sunset has taken Bravo viewers by storm. The hard-partying Persian crew has learned from its network counterparts and created some over-the-top drama. Friendships have been formed and destroyed. Relationships break-up as quickly as they began. Whether Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi is swimming in whiskey and battling Asa Soltan Rahmati or Reza Farahan is stirring the pot, people are watching, and they are enthralled. Of course, don't even get me started on the shallowness of self-proclaimed Persian Barbie Lilly Ghalichi!
Mercedes "MJ" Javid was at the center of controversy this season, as she tried to play the middle man for friends turned foes. Her partying was called into question, and her relationship with biffle Reza suffered. Not phased, MJ has been sharing her path to self-confidence. As she should…MJ and cast mates have almost reached Housewives franchise status. The gang is getting a two-part reunion and a lost footage show. That's how you know you've arrived, Bravo style!
What do you get when you take a petite heiress with a penchant for extensions and then add a couple shots liters of whiskey? Why GG Gharachedagi of Shahs of Sunset fame, of course!
Without question, GG is my favorite star of the Bravo hit, and that's not just because she could take me in a street fight. Sure, she's a loose cannon, but she's also loyal to her friends. I think she has adopted the tough exterior to mask just how vulnerable she can be on the inside. However, if you listen to what GG is saying lately, she doesn't want you to believe she is a total softie.
The more Brandi talks about her ex and his new wife, the more stories we're going to hear about LeAnn trying to find her inner strength in the midst of personal turmoil. Gag me with a bony arm and a violin…although, technically in LeAnn's case it would be a fiddle, right? Let the insanity ensue!
Let's say you built a giant brand based on how perfect and skinny and fab your life has been, and then let's say assume that a sperm donor the fairy tale marriage and a beautiful baby would be the cherry on top of said perfect life. You know what would really suck? If, due to your desire to become even more of an empire, you find yourself in a bitter divorce while you're in the middle of penning yet another lifestyle book.
Apparently, that is what is happening with the polarizing reality star Bethenny Frankel. In the midst of writing Skinnygirl Solutions, she now finds herself in a custody (and closet) battle with soon to be ex-husband Jason Hoppy. What's a girl to do?
A Konvoy of Krazy is pulling into the Kardashian station, literally. Let's round up the K's, shall we?
First, we have Kris Humphries still refusing to budge on his annulment stance, and he wants raw footage from the show to prove he deserves it. Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, is trying to take the sympathy route, pleading with the court that all of this stress could be harmful to her unborn baby. I don't even want to mention that Kanye West won't even be able to declare paternity right away if Kimye, Jr. is born while Kim is married to another man.
So, now on to the fourth K, Kris Jenner! She is yet again denying divorce rumors regarding her and husband Bruce Jenner. Is it Groundhog's Day? We also learn that Kris' own divorce from Kim's father wasn't pretty, and Kris was made to undergo a mental health evaluation! Care to take a gander at the results before you keep reading?
There is a lot going on in the world of the Bachelor today…past and present. First up, everyone's favorite pilot turned famewhore Jake Pavelka is discussing his love, the talented Kristin Chenoweth. I will never, ever understand that situation as long as I live. She's just so cute, I want to put her in my pocket, but I am certainly questioning her romantic choices of late.
You know who else is questioning his romantic choices (and rightfully so)? Why, it's current Bachelor Sean Lowe! Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, because it appears that even though he keeps picking the atrocious Tierra LiCausa, Sean now recognizes he was clearly hoodwinked…what a cute expression. Golly, Sean. And speaking of Tierra, she has to command that attention, right? Just wait until you see her recent Instagram picture!
On last night's Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller was even more psychotic than ever in light of the return of Cathy and her Candy Apples. Cathy brought some breakdancers, Jill took Melissa's place as Abby's do-girl, and Christi…well, Christi reaches her boiling point in a way I would have never imagined.
Melissa is very nervous about the pyramid because she knows Abby is mad at her and livid over the fourth place finish. In fact, Abby swoops in and stares down the dancers, telling them she wants to take a long hard look at what fourth place looks like. ALDC hasn't seen fourth place in two decades. Someone start the violins, please. She is the one who is choreographing and teaching the dances. The entirety of the blame doesn't lie on a bunch of girls in elementary school. Or am I just crazy? Sometimes it's hard to tell…
The girls will be traveling to New Jersey for this week's competition. MacKenzie is at the bottom of the pyramid, and Abby yanks her from the group dance. A tearful Maddie joins her sister, and that has to be a blow given how she's used to being on top. I really wish Abby would stop punishing these girls for their mother's bad behavior. She rubs Maddie's nose in the fact that Chloe won at Nationals. Paige's alleged "laziness" puts her on the lowest rung as well along with Nia for just being "fine." Jill is estatic to see Kendall finally off the bottom, and Abby warns Kendall that she only needs to be worried when Abby no longer cares enough to criticize her dancing abilities. How sweet. Chloe is also in the middle for not following Abby's choreography in the way Abby envisioned it should be. Poor Brooke is the only one left, and Abby laughs at the thought that she's at the top of the pyramid. Just kidding! No one takes the top spot. Brooke will be in the group routine, and Kendall gets a solo called "Owe You Nothing." Abby reminds her and her mother that she owes them nada. Nia also gets a solo. Chloe is thrilled to get the final solo, and Maddie's face drops. The group number will have hats as props, and Abby warns that if anyone drops a hat, they will be off the team.
