It’s a big season for RuPaul’s Drag Race! The drag queen reality competition returns to Logo on Monday, March 7th at 9:00 PM ET with a super-sized ninety minute premiere that also celebrates the series’ 100th episode…and the 100th contestant to strut down the catwalk.
Leading up to the big event, Logo will air a full RuPaul’s Drag Race marathon of the past seven seasons which starts at 7:00 PM ET on March, 3rd. The four-day event will include brand new behind-the-scenes dirt and interviews from former contestants. We’ve already met the queens, but wait until you hear who will be dropping by throughout the season!
The realization that Mob Wives’ most beloved star Big Ang Raiola has passed away from cancer still hasn’t really hit me yet. While she prided herself on her larger than life, surgically enhanced features, I think we can all agree, they paled in size compared to her giant, compassionate heart and her friendly, genuine smile. The world is a little smaller without her in it, but I am grateful she shared her vibrant personality with all of us who watched the show.
Big Ang was the only reason to watch Mob Wives. As her co-stars brawl and partake in scripted drama, we could count on Ang to share no nonsense advice and sometimes humorously stirring the pot. While the current season features Ang’s second battle with cancer, here’s hoping her co-stars truly learn that there are much, MUCH more important things in life than holding grudges…if only to honor their true, sweet friend.
Did you expect them to quit their public bickering? Surely not! In case you missed it, Kathryn Dennis has been hurling Twitter insults at Thomas Ravenel, and T-Rav is returning the favor by accusing her of keeping him from the pair’s two very young children.
As the two publicly spar over parenthood and partying, it has Southern Charm’s collective fan base waiting in anticipation for the show’s third season. After his Godzilla versus Jesus comparison, Thomas is expanding on his response to Kathryn’s allegations that he’s an absent father who doesn’t pay child support. His side of the story? It’s all Kathryn’s fault, naturally!
I wonder if the ladies of Mob Wives remember that warehouse round-table where the vowed to leave their anger behind and not speak poorly about each other. It doesn’t seem like it! Renee Graziano is hopeful that the women are moving forward, and she’s hosting the group (sans Prissy Marissy) at a baseball game.
Renee, Carla Facciolo, and Karen Gravano argue about the protocol of placing one’s hand over one’s heart during the national anthem…and they are having this debate during the actual national anthem. As if their loud banter isn’t disrespectful enough, Karen swears up and down that your supposed to put your hand over your heart during the Star-Spangled Banner, not the national anthem. It takes her the entire song–and prodding from Renee–to realize the songs are one and the same. Patriotism at its finest. Big Ang is looking great despite her recent tests to determine the mass on her lungs, and all of the ladies agree that their beef is extremely petty in comparison to what she’s facing. Drita D’avanzo arrives with Brittany Fogarty who is understandably wary about facing this group of hens after their last encounter. She’s hoping she and Karen can move forward after last week’s tense chat, and she invites the ladies to come watch her watch in one of the many shows that she’ll be walking in for New York Fashion Week. Wait, what?
Y’all, I am not excited about Twitter drama (lie), but if I was, it’s only because of what it means. In the case of Kathryn Dennis’ recent social media tirade against Thomas Ravenel, it means that Southern Charm is gearing up for another season, and that, to me, is like Christmas. I. Love. This. Show.
No, I don’t take joy in the parents of two beautiful children airing their dirty laundry in the Twitterverse. However, I do applaud Kathryn for putting it out there and keeping it out there, unlike other stars who tweet, retreat, and delete! If she said it, she’s sticking to it! Also, the cynic in me believes that when we start hearing about outside feuds (knowing that Shep Rose, Cameran Eubanks, and crew have wrapped filming in Charleston), it’s because the puppeteers at Bravo are amping up anticipation for the third round of Southern Charm. It’s a Bravo formula that has worked well with multiple franchises, amirite?
If there’s one thing that Abby Lee Miller can consistently do, it’s bring the crazy to Dance Moms. Despite her legal woes, she managed to be a part of last night’s episode–although she appeared to be on the verge of a mental breakdown the entire time. However, I don’t think Abby’s as unhinged as she appears…I think it’s all ego. Also, Lifetime, I’m on to you adding nine extra minutes to the episodes this season. Not cool.
Abby is sporting pajamas and rollers as the ALDC waits to practice. Jill has her nose so far up Abby’s bum in hopes of drawing her out of the insanity. “Your hair is going to look so great when you finally take out of those hot rollers,” and, “You don’t want to go out on the bottom…you need to show the world you’ve still got it!” Abby retorts that she wasn’t put on this earth for the Feds to make her look bad. She’s done working with the ALDC. Holly questions whether they should pursue an opportunity with Debbie Allen. They want to be supportive, but if she doesn’t want them there, they don’t have other options. As Abby melts down, she shuns Melissa and Jill who hope she’ll change her mind. Gia is equally stressed as she works with the girls on their group number.
Andy Cohen must teach a secret class to Bravo housewives so they know how to hock wares with the best of them. Whether it’s fruity alcoholic beverages or the always popular cookbook, the ladies from Orange County to New York love to slap their name on a product. And just like that, a brand is born.
The latest housewife offering comes from Real Housewives of New Jersey’sDina Manzo, who has partnered with dermatologists to create a new line of skincare called GLOW by Dina. Not only is Dina spreading the word about her new venture, her friend and former co-star Teresa Giudice is helping her plug GLOW on social media.
