As we reported the other day, Grayson, the son of Real Housewives of Orange County'sSlade Smiley, underwent brain surgery for a tumor hes been battling for years. Many of our readers were upset that Gretchen Rossi was Facebooking the status of Grayson's surgery. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how tense things are between Slade and Grayson's mother as he claims he can't afford to pay child support or help with their son's mounting medical bills.
While Gretchen was asking for prayers for Grayson from her fans, many wondered how Grayson's mother would feel about her updating the world on her boyfriend's son. I think she's more interested in her son's well-being and sharing how you can donate to help pay his bills than to worry about Gretchen.
Every time I have to write about LeAnn RimesTwitter battle, I giggle out loud. The entire concept is something so completely foreign to me, and it reminds me of a passage from Dr. Seuss' wonderful book Fox in Socks, "Let's have a little talk about tweetle beetles….What do you know about tweetle beetles? Well…When tweetle beetles fight, it's called a tweetle beetle battle. And when they battle in a puddle, it's a tweetle beetle puddle battle." It's seriously what goes through my head every time. Every. Time.
When LeAnntweetle twitter battles, she does it with fans of her new husband's ex-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls'Brandi Glanville. Then she sues them. As we all know, LeAnn is suing a teacher who allegedly taped a conversation when the singer called to find out why said teacher was mean to her on Twitter. A great deal of swearing occurred on LeAnn's part. Now the teacher, Kimberly Smiley (any relation to Slade?) is asking for an extension to fight the suit, as she has been unable to raise enough money to hire an attorney.
Oh Basketball Wives and Basketball Wives L.A., what would we do without you? From the ridiculous to the boring to the lunch meet-ups to the over-the-top crazy personalities, you both run the gamut. Here's a little dose of some BBW and BBW LA news to quench your thirst for some daily trash! I kid, I kid…for once news about these ladies (the originals, especially!) is relatively tame!
First up, Evelyn Lozada is a busy little beeotch! Not only has her private marital dramas played out in the public eye, she is working on several projects. I'm guessing she's trying to stay busy to keep her mind off of all her issues with soon-to-be-ex-husband Chad Ochocinco Johnson. We certainly can't blame her for that now, can we?
I know most people won't agree with me, but I like Heather Dubrow. I daresay, she's my favorite of the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County. However, girlfriend needs to stop giving interviews that reference Alexis Bellino. It's unbecoming. This time around, she seems to be burying the hatchet, but still. I can't wait until I can write about one of these women in one of the many franchises and actually use the phrase "took the high road." A girl can dream, can't she?
This time around, Heather is discussing her time on the show, as well as her hesitation to join the cast. She touches on the breakdown between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney's friendship and her disdain at the term "bullying" being thrown about in situations where it may not apply. I'm not going to touch that comment with a ten-foot pole!
As if you thought Lifetime would ever cancel its cash cow…Abby Lee Miller will be back and likely meaner than ever for yet another season of Dance Moms. Love her or hate her, I adore the girls and can't believe the amount of talent they have. I am over the moon to see the show return.
It's a true hit for Lifetime, spawning two spin-offs: Dance Moms: Miami and the recently premiered Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition which allows young girls to be ridiculed and berated by Abby while only garnering a few short minutes of screen time. It's the American Dream I tell you, the American Dream!
Even though I was excited about meeting Jeff Lewis' grandmother on last night's Flipping Out, I have to say this was a very depressing episode. I hate seeing any of my favorite neurotic design team sad or sullen or in a tizzy! However, I will say the Spring Oak finished product looks ah-maz-ing!
Jeff is preparing to move to Spring Oak, so he teases Zoila Chavez about cleaning it before they move. He's ready to be back in a party house where everyone can relax and not be on top of one another. Currently he feels like he and Gage live in an office space with a bedroom. Nancy is taking orders for lunch, and Jeff takes it upon himself to order a salad and direct weight gain digs at the bride-to-be Jenni Pulos. He says it will definitely be Jenni's Big Fat Greek Wedding. Zoila comes to Jenni's defense saying that she herself is fat as well, and Jeff devises a plan to have Zoila stand next to Jenni during the ceremony to make her look thinner. Jenni is so good natured about the teasing…probably because she knows she looks great. Plus, she's hired a trainer.
If you recall, 20/20 did a report on Brooks where they claimed that he wasn't paying anything for his son with ex-girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite and hadn't visited his son since he was 5 or 6 months old. Furthermore, Nicolette claimed that she had no clue of Brooks' whereabouts until he showed up on RHOC! Well, now the news program is setting the record straight thanks to ol' Brooks.
Oh, that Kim Zolciak Biermann from Real Housewives of Atlanta! She's such a tease. Is she getting her own show? Was she fired from RHOA? What's going on with her crazy mother? If you want these questions and more answered, you're at the wrong place.
However, if you want the funny Kim you've grown to known and love through various Bravo shows, she's talking up a storm about the precious family you saw on Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding and some of her former friends.
