What happens when you take a show centered around a cooking club in Miami and splice and edit it into a housewives show? You get a boring season with a confusing dinner party in each episode. However, what happens when you revamp that season, let the ladies know to bring the drama, and replace some Basketball Wives with a supermodel and some successful surgically enhanced professionals? Amazingness…that's what. The only constant is Mama Elsa.
Real Housewives of Miami has certainly found its footing as a legitimate member of the Bravo franchise. These women (and their ginormous boobs!) certainly know how to bring the drama. Case in point? Joanna Krupa had a meltdown of epic proportions on the most recent episode, ruining the 10th anniversary party for her fiance's nightclub…all thanks to a cheating DJ. Now that's what I'm talking about, ladies!
It seems that almost everyday there's a little buzz about which city will be hosting the next round of Bravo insanity with its own set of overly catty, surgically enhanced, and Botoxed to the hilt drama queens…marriage license preferred but certainly not required.
While the Bravo cash cow has women fighting each other in franchises all over the country, one rumor has been consistent for a while. Could Bravo be heading to the homeland of Eden and Cruz (yeah, I went there!) to film the next installment? With the original Real Housewives of Orange County still bringing in the ratings andReal Housewives of Beverly Hills still bringing the most-talked about dramatics, wouldn't it make sense to go back to Cali for the next batch of crazy?
Giuliana and Bill Rancic's lives have been an open book even before they started documenting their marriage on their hit reality showGiuliana and Bill. She is a long time E! correspondent, and he is a past Apprentice winner and public speaker. Also, given that Giuliana considers the ultimate fame mongering reality persona to be her second mother, it's only natural everything she and her husband do involve a camera crew.
Giuliana shared her struggles with infertility with her fans, as well as her battle with breast cancer. However, when the couple's son was born via gestational surrogate, they didn't allow the cameras in to film the birth. Instead they opted to video the birth themselves so they could have it for their personal footage.
Melissa is speaking out about her time on the show, saying that while it ruined her family, she wouldn't change the experience. Of course she wouldn't. I am starting to wonder if any of these women isn't a total fame seeking mess. Holy heck, did Teresa just make Nicholas'autism about her??? I am going to get back to this post before I reach through my television. It's bad when these women are making Danielle Staub look sane. Okay, I'm back on track. I think. So, let's revisit Melissa talking about her time on the show, shall we?
If you had told me when Real Housewives of Atlanta started that NeNe Leakes would be the breakout star, I would totally have agreed with you. However, if you had told me she would segue her Bravo gig into a legitimate acting career, I would have pointed you in the direction of the nearest loony bin. Clearly, I was wrong.
NeNe is now commuting between Atlanta and Los Angeles where she is filming the NBC sitcom The New Normal. She's no longer screaming in Kim Zolciak's face. Instead she's trading jokes with The Ellen Barkin. So, it begs the question…will NeNe be a reality star or an actress? NeNe seems conflicted herself.
Project Runway All Stars is returning to Lifetime with some fan favorites…and not so favorites! There will be cat suits and cat fights, mark my words. Thirteen past designers will be back to compete for the reward that eluded them their first go-round. Each of the nine past seasons are represented except for season 4, but the majority of players are from the more recent seasons.
Iconic fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi returns to judge alongside the gorgeous Georgina Chapman who is the co-founder of Marchesa. Supermodel Carolyn Murphy (who is as intelligent as she is beautiful–her bio? Whoa!) will take over this season's hosting duties. Joanna Coles, former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire/just named editor-in-chief of Cosmo, resumes her role as all-star mentor. I like Joanna, but I sure do miss Tim Gunn when he's gone!

Another day, another saga in the Adrienne Maloof/Paul Nassif divorce. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple as been dragging each other through the mud since their separation was made public. After allegations of verbal and physical abuse against each other, Adrienne accused Paul of being violent towards their children. An emergency hearing was held, and Adrienne was awarded temporary sole custody of the pair's sons.
This week, the Department of Children and Family Services found that the claims of abuse against the children were unfounded, and Paul went to court to regain visitation with his three boys. Yesterday, Paul was awarded supervised visitation of his children. Um…didn't he just get cleared? Sounds like there could be more to the story and the flying accusations!
I already love the family from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but if I hadn't already, I would after learning more about them. They may act like a backwoods sideshow a lot of the time, but the truth is that June and her daughters are much more grounded than many of us would be if we got a taste of reality fame.
After catching America's eye as a then five-year-old Alana downed go-go juice on Toddlers and Tiaras, the family has garnered both fame and criticism for their lack of manners and poor eating habits (sketti, anyone?), as well as their unconventional family outings. In their show's first episode, fifteen-year-old Jessica "Chubs" went bobbing for raw pig's feet, and later in the season the family went dumpster diving while talking about their penchant for eating road kill. It's easy to see how some people could turn up their noses at this family, if it weren't for one small fact.
This family totally loves one another. There is very little drama, and no question about how much mama June loves her four daughters. If you can understand Sugar Bear with his mouth full of dip, you would know he feels the exact same. While their show has been green lighted for a second season, the group still continues to live their regular lives in the tiny county of McIntyre, Georgia. June is doing everything she can to make sure that fame affecting her family is not an option.
