Last night was the season finale of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. What a ride! The episode begins as Moniece and Rich Dollaz are having a date night, and she applauds him for his civil meeting with Lil’ Fizz. She’s excited with the state of their relationship–Rich has done everything she’s asked of him regardless of how crazy he may consider her requests. Of course, with Moniece we know that that’s saying a lot! Next on her list? Engagement rings and wedding bands! Rich is on board as long as his ring is just as expensive as hers. Meanwhile, after coming out to his ex-girlfriend Amber to appease his current boyfriend Milan, Miles has decided to face his best guy friends with the news that he is gay. After the regular friendly ribbing and a quick game of pool, Miles realizes he should’ve never been nervous to tell his friends of his sexual orientation. They are extremely open to his admission, except for the fact that he didn’t feel comfortable telling them earlier.
Ray J is still whining about losing Princess, and he’s pulling out all the stops in hopes of making her come back to him. Cue a giant red bow and a brand-new house. He is all in as far as a relationship goes, but Ray’s not all in as far as Dabo’s (#allin #BYOG #GoTigers) standards go. Princess knows that Ray can be unpredictable, but she’s hoping he realizes why she needed to slow things down in the first place. She still loves Ray, but she’s not sure she can trust him due to his history of strippers and late nights. This is Ray’s final chance with Princess. Until the next chance, obviously. Princess cites that she is not ready to move into a new house unless Ray can promise her that it will be hers forever. She wants everything in her name. Ray isn’t about to convey his latest property over to Princess, but he lies and tells her that it’s in the works. Princess is excited about this next chapter, but she shouldn’t hold her breath for a quitclaim deed. Neither should Ray J, as we all know that this is just VH1 renting a house for filming purposes and for no other reason.
Last night, Tamron Hall tackled a two hour Sister Wives special. She’s a braver woman than I am! The Browns revisit the season, from Meri divorcing Kody so he can marry Robyn and adopt her children. Robyn and Kody share their opposing views about whether they should have celebrated their marriage license with more pomp and circumstance, and Tamron calls out Kody for caring about the family’s critics. Tamron asks if Kody legally marrying Robyn legitimizes her as more of a wife. Janelle argues that Meri was legitimized legally and defends Robyn against her detractors who think she’s put a diabolical plan into action. Robyn has a difficult time watching herself breakdown over whether her ex-husband would terminate his parental rights. Kody sheds tears of happiness watching the adoption footage, and Tamron questions if Meri felt detached throughout the adoption process. She admits that she was disengaged throughout filming, but her attitude had nothing to do with her family.
Robyn’s pregnancy announcement is highlighted, and she and Meri joke about their plan to have Meri relay the news. Janelle admits she was in shock…she expected Meri to say she wasn’t going back to school or had cancer. No middle ground for Janelle! Robyn beams about how exciting her pregnancy is through the eyes of the other children. Tamron opines that Kody is already stretched thin with so many kids, but Christine interjects, stating that when it comes to Kody’s time, it’s quality not quantity. Kody reminds Tamron he doesn’t golf, so he’s got plenty of time to spend with his brood. Sure. Christine’s meds are working overtime as she gushes about their couples retreat, complete with two counselors and “stupid rock building.” I love this Christine. She laughs throughout the footage, but I get the feeling she’s about to burst into tears.
What would happen if former Dance Moms star Kelly Hyland and Basketball Wives producer and star Shaunie O’Neal joined forces? WE tv seems to have the answer to this burning question. To be honest, it makes my head spin to even contemplate the insanity of it all!
There is a perfect recipe when it comes to reality television that is guaranteed to bring the drama…and the ratings. Combine one group of back-stabbing friends, stir in a pinch of one-upping behavior, add a dash of a competitive activity that adds stress and pressure to any family, and finally (the most important ingredient!), toss in a bunch of sweet and talented kids whose talent and sweetness is only usurped by their mothers’ desire to be the center of attention in any situation. Bake for one season, and you’ve got what is sure to be a staple on my DVR…Basketball Moms!
Take us back to dock, Jimmy Buffett…”I used to rule my world from a pay phone and ships out on the sea; but now times are rough, and I got too much stuff–can’t explain the likes of me. But there’s this one particular harbor, so far but yet so near; where I see the days as they fade away, and finally disappear.” Thanks for joining us for Below Deck’s final voyage on the Eros, at least for this season. Can we say cray-cray? Thank goodness Captain Lee Rosbach was able to keep is alpha cool among all the chaos!
The episode begins with Amy Johnson and Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow warning Emile Kotze that confronting Eddie Lucas about his spin cycle affair with Rocky is a bad idea. Well, Amy is doing most of the warning…Rocky is licking her chops and trying to hide her “my plan is working!” grin. Rocky then asks is Amy is jealous of laundry room liaisons with Eddie given Amy’s long-time crush on the bosun. There’s nothing like salt in the wound, right readers? The confusing charter guests are in full swing. Who are these girls? Why did these two guys who are clearly getting nada from their ladies paying for them to be on a chartered yacht? The girls look at the two primary guests as photographers who can capture their every moment flanked by Emile and Eddie.
Something tells me that we aren’t going to see any of the runway shenanigans featured on last night’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywoodduring Fashion Week! This crew can’t have even the simplest event without major drama. Even back-to-school shopping is more than just backpacks and tiny jeans.
The episode begins with Lil’ Fizz and Moniece clothes shopping for Cameron before he starts kindergarten. Fizz is thrilled to finally be co-parenting with his ex, and he’s got a plan that good benefit both of them…he wants Moniece to be the featured girl in his upcoming video that Nikki declined. Moniece is happy to oblige but she’s confused by the emotions that are starting to resurface, especially given how much she loves Rich Dollaz. She presses Fizz about his dating life, and when Moniece learns he’s seeing Nikki, she realizes he’s just going for the low hanging fruit. Ray J is still moping over his break-up Princess, so he seeks advice from his friend Max. No matter how many hotties Ray may find in a club, no one compares to Princess. She’s changed him. While Ray used to cheat 90% of the time (that’s two girls a week, according to him), now he’s only cheating 5%…and most of that is just him watching porn. Wow, he’s such a catch!
I can’t wait to see the numbers that tuned into last night’s Sister Wives to witness Meri’s anticlimactic catfish confession. The episode begins with the Browns still on an Alaska high after a fun-filled family vacation on TLC’s dime, and Christine is thrilled at how well the kids got along…and the wives too! Janelle is glad that her oldest children’s significant others could join the crew. Maddie’s boyfriend Caleb is a bit nervous to have “the talk” with Kody. Before he bites the bullet, he and Madison are sneaking away for a double date with Logan and his girlfriend Michelle. Logan reveals that dating has been hard for him because people seem to automatically assume he wants to be a polygamist. While he loves his family, he only wants one wife.
Over dinner, Michelle admits that she found meeting Kody to be intimidating, but Caleb? Not so much. Caleb and Logan both assure their significant others that they are one-woman guys. Michelle and Caleb both enjoy the dynamic of all the mothers. Madison believes that not having multiple mothers will be the oddest part of raising her own kids. Janelle thinks that all of the Brown children feel grateful for their different upbringing, and she knows there were times her kids likes Meri and Christine more than they liked her. Robyn finds it funny that the parents are putting so much pressure on Kody and Maddie to get married, but they hold back when it comes to Logan and Michelle. She wants everyone to take a chill pill until they are certain Caleb is ready to tie the knot. Thanks, Robyn. As always, your opinion is the most important. Where is the sarcasm font when you need it?
I smell a rat! Or at least, I smell the fragrance of a group of ladies who love to toss around that word! What would that scent be? Virginia Slims, vodka, and prison waiting rooms, perhaps? I know what it doesn’t smell like in 2016…Philadelphia or Natalies. That’s right, folks! Mob Wives is returning, and it’s getting back to basics.
The VH1 reality hit is scheduled to debut its sixth season in January, and the network is relying on the series’ OGs to bring the drama. Throughout the past seasons, we’ve seen Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano go from trying to kill one another (literally) to burying the hatchet (and the plates, and the chairs, and anything else that could be used as a weapon). Renee Graziano has battled personal demons–and all of her friends and co-stars–and demands the utmost loyalty to the point it causes her paranoia. Big Ang is always the fun-loving glue that keeps this group from imploding. Also, Carla Facciolo is returning as a full time cast member…we knew she couldn’t stay away for long!
So, this may be one of those situations where both congratulations and condolences are in order, as another reality television baby entered the world while his parents battled back and forth about their relationship status…just as it was in the olden days. 😉
Last night, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’sAlthea “Thi-Thi” Heart went into labor with her son, the namesake of boyfriend (ex-boyfriend?) Benzino. Baby Zino debuted this soon after, but not before ‘Zino, Sr. and Thi-Thi could engage in the requisite amount of drama and hospital selfies, all of which played out over social media. We can always count on you, No Neck, Benzino!
