There are not a lot of celebrities that annoy me to the extent that LeAnn Rimes annoys me. I used to be obsessed with her back when she was a young country singer dating Andrew Keegan (who didn't adore him?). Now, her penchant for over-sharing and vine videos just rubs me the wrong way. It's not even the infidelity or the Twitter battles she's now famous for, it's just her demeanor. She's very good at being condescending.
Anyhoo, I'll get off my soapbox long enough to write about her upcoming reality show with husband Eddie Cibrian that I won't be watching. Just kidding! I will totally be all over that show. As much as she grates on my nerves, LeAnn is my own personal train wreck. I just can't look away.
So we've got a new opener for Sister Wives…not the words, but at least the outfits. That's a plus right? Some wives are happy while the others are doing what they should be doing…freaking out at the revelation that they are in this polygamist situation while cameras watch…
Several children and Meri Brown are celebrating their birthdays. If you ever have enough children to infringe on your special day MORE THAN ONCE, I'd venture to say you're having too many children. Kody Brown is grilling out for the birthdays, and in anticipation of his birthday and his anniversary with Janelle. Christine could care less about birthdays, she just wants to grow My Sister Wives Closet with some investors. Gracious. There are people who want to put their money into this situation? Christine is channeling her inner Martha Stewart when thinking about what "their brand" can accomplish.
Kody and his hair are stressing about his wife house jumping, and Robyn Sullivan Brown is all about Kody bonding with her kids. Robyn and Kody bicker about her son having Aspergers. She wants to do what's best for him, while Kody thinks it was a ridiculous diagnosis. Let's forget about that gem for a bit, because there are a lot of birthday and anniversary celebrations to tend to in the meantime. Meri loves Keith Urban and she does everything in her power to straighten Kody's hair so he can be the Australian prototype she wants. At least line dancing is good for something!
What's Brandi Glanville been up to lately? Well, if I had to guess, we could probably find the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in the club with a bottle full of bub, and she's got what you need if you need to feel the buzz. Oh, she's probably partying like it's your birthday, drinking Bacardi like it's your birthday, but let's be honest. We all know Brandi doesn't give a flying flip it's not your birthday.
See where I'm going with this? Eat your heart out, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. Brandi has been hanging out with Curtis James Jackson, III, and he could buy and sell your piddly selves one hundred times over. I kid, I kid. He probably wouldn't want to…
The shiz-nigh-ee is about to hit the fan-ishtas-ee. No, not really…I just love channeling my inner Lil' Scrappy. The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star says the darndest things! Scrap has had close to a dozen eggs scrambling to get in his pants this season, but Momma Dee is cracking down on the ladies. Not just any woodland creature can enter her kingdom!
Speaking of, "the Bambi," despite what we saw on Monday's episode, Scrappy and Bambi are still together and more in love than ever…which, in Scrap's case, means he's finally in love!
Well, I can honestly say I never saw this coming…or at least, I never thought a resolution would come as quickly as it did…a year and a half after it started. Are you sitting down? Okay, I'll give you a second to find a chair. Ready? Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have finally settled their custody dispute over four-year-old daughter Bryn.
I know, right? I, too thought their nasty battle would last at least until the poor child was in high school! Thankfully, the litigious former reality couple was able to settle their differences. While the settlement terms are sealed, it seems that Bethenny may have conceded a bit.
Full disclosure: I set out to loathe Southern Charm. I anticipated watching like one would a train wreck. In the beginning, I did, but then something strange happened. It was as if the Who's Who of WhoovilleCharleston various towns throughout my great state were able to change this Grinch. At first I couldn't stand the thought of Thomas Ravenel, having once watched him make out at the table next to me in some oyster bar years ago. Then, strangely, I began to feel sorry for him, as he clearly just wanted to find love and a proper Senator's wife. Finally, he grew on me, much like a wart or some other weird skin abnormality, but grew on me nonetheless. I honestly think he's going to be an amazing dad.
That said, I guess I'm going to have to start following politics, because T-Rav isn't planning on any more Bravo stints. Instead, he's hoping to revamp his political career with the hopes that people will remember his time on Southern Charm more than they do the time he served in prison. T-Rav certainly has a colorful past, doesn't he? He's like a modern day Ernest Hemingway without the works of literary genius.
And this is why I put little to no stock in what celebrities have to say about politics. Sure, they love to talk (and talkandtalkandtalkandtalk) about whatever candidate best fits their personal agenda or is en vogue with the A-listers of Hollywood, but do most of them even have a clue? At best, the extent of Kim Kardashian's political knowledge comes from School House Rock, at worst…well, this is pretty bad.
The reality star was shunned by the Obama campaign, and the President himself once referred to her now husbandKanye West as a "jackass." Classic Barack. Now, Kim is diving head first into local politics, backing California's 33rd District Congressional Candidate Marianne Williamson. So what has Kim contributed to the campaign? Money? Of course not! But she did write a boastful blog about a recent press event with Marianne.
