All Things Real Housewives has recapped the interview in case you missed it. Of the show itself, Lisa recalls, “I do remember saying to [Bravo’s producers] that I wanted to leave the show with the same integrity I came in with. I just don’t want any BS editing. I’m no angel, I do make a few snarky comments and have a laugh. It is a television show. But I’m not in this business or on this show to put down my cast mates or get into a bitchfest, that’s not who I am, and I think if that day comes then I should leave."
Sure, she wastes gems by having them put in her teeth, she comes off as the world's biggest nag, and I am not NOT worried about the state of her marriage, but by God, I love Shannon Beador, and last night's Real Housewives of Orange County only affirmed my affections. Not only did she stay true to herself (I like that even though she enjoys spending time with Vicki Gunvalson, she wasn't shy about calling out her mean girl behavior to new girl Lizzie Rovsek), but she managed to make Heather Dubrow look like the ultimate twit (although given how the season has been going thus far, I'm not sure that's quite a feat).
In her Bravo blog highlighting last night's episode, Shannon begins, "I consider Dr. Moon a part of the family so I was really excited when Vicki agreed to see him with me. I love Vicki's spirit — she is open to anything, especially holistic and alternative therapies. Dr. Moon has a theory that when a person is "jammed," energy cannot properly flow through the body for optimum health. He will go through a process to 'de-jam' a patient and one of those areas to 'de-jam' is the tailbone. I know Vicki was joking around, but I want to be clear he does not put his finger in your rear end."
I'm curious…do you think VH1 and Mona Scott Young really, truly believe that viewers think Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is a reality show? The acting is fantastically tragic and there is nothing real about it…except for that sex tape, clearly.
Nikko didn't tell Mimi Faust about his confrontation with Stevie J. immediately after it happened, but he spills the beans when they are driving the next day. When she learns that Nikko has told her ex about the deal Vivid, she has to pull over to read Nikko the riot act. She is cruising in her new vehicle (thanks, Steven Hirsch!), and Mimi doesn't want to wreck it when she wrecks him. As she cusses up a storm, Nikko just laughs that Stevie shouldn't get her riled up like this. Mimi tries to kick him out of her ride, but when he refuses, she's the one who storms off on foot.
Lil' Scrappy is eating eggs with Erica P…or at least he hopes to be scrambling some things with her. He arrives at her house to find out that she's lit candles and served wine, and he wonders whether he's there to pray or have sex. Scrappy is a bit nervous, but he wants to be a better person. He is feeling guilty about Bambi and he wants to think with this head and not his hiz-ead. Scrappy shuts down Erica's advances, complimenting her that he'd definitely be with her if he didn't already have Bambi. And they say romance is dead!
Now that Real Housewives of Atlanta has finished for the season, it's time to start speculating on who will come back, who'll get the boot, and who may get the dreaded demotion to friend status. I'll give it to Bravo, the network has worked it out so that we are never without housewives drama…even if a given season isn't filming!
Rumors have been rampant for a while that Porsha Williams was fired. First gossip claimed that she got axed for being too boring, but she proved that notion wrong when she went hair pulling crazy on co-star Kenya Moore at the RHOA reunion. Of course, following that debacle, stories flooded that Internet saying that Porsha was let go for her violent outburst.
She's not going away, y'all! Courtney Stodden became famous (is that what you'd call it?) when she wed fifty-something "actor" Doug Hutchison at the rip old age of sixteen, and they milked their notoriety on Couples Therapy. After her stint on U.K.'s Big Brother, Courtney called it a day as far as her marriage to Doug was concerned, promising that the two would remain the best of friends. She also promised to stay in the spotlight…well, maybe not publicly, but that is the only answer to why she's still around.
Now, Courtney is introducing a series of webisodes, tackling such hard hitting topics like selfies and helium. You read that correctly. Courtney Naturally is the name of her new endeavor, and Courtney shares with Fox 411, “I'm just being me…Each ep [sic] is fun and outrageous. The best part is there is no filter.”
Her mother–and manager (shocking!)–concurs, explaining that topics will evolve from superficial selfies. Courtney's mother says, “Her and I are on it together and we’re going over baby pictures and laughing about the ways I dressed her. There’s a lot more to come.” Sounds riveting! Check out the first two episodes after the jump! Just a warning…I'm much dumber having watched!
I certainly don't believe Mimi Faust's version of the stolen sex tape which will make her super rich. While she may not have devised the plan with Nikko (who looks like he couldn't plan his way out of a paper bag), I don't think she was as clueless and doe-eyed about it as she tries to appear on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. That said, Stevie J. will always be just gross and a little scary in my book. Behind his funny one-liners and ridiculous persona, I see a very manipulative creep who likes to threaten others to make himself feel like a bigger man. When he first started on the show, his behavior towards Mimi was deplorable and based entirely on manipulation and humiliation. I'll get off my soapbox now, but I've known the likes of Stevie. Of course, who am I kidding? All of these people are bat-poo insane!
The latest drama between the pair occurred after Mimi's father died on Wednesday. Stevie shared his condolences with a threatening text message insinuating that Mimi may be dealing with more death than just that of her father. Classy. Of course, Mimi did what every woman who didn't want to escalate a bad situation would do…she posted a screenshot of the text on Instagram.
Please accept my sincerest apology. I dropped the ball in a major way! How did I not know that my favorite new scripted show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was on twice this week? Since the recap is already a day late, let's just dive right in to the insanity, shall we?
Joseline Hernandez goes to Stevie J.'s man cave to continue to nag him about Mimi Faust's friends being all up in their business. Does she just wander around in lingerie all the time? Seriously, the sets, the lighting, the costumes, the horrible acting–this is NOT reality television! Stevie ignores his bride while surfing the Internet, and lo and behold! He's just happens across the blog story that shares Mimi's "leaked" sex tape with Nikko. Talk about coincidence!
Next, I was literally about to give up on all things Mona Scott Young when I saw just how bad Karlie Redd's acting is until I learned that she is supposed to be acting because she's in a "movie" now called 30 Days in Atlanta. Someone call Sundance! Karlie is so thrilled to be in a relationship with Yung Joc. Not only is he younger and more successful than Benzino, he has a neck! Yung also doesn't like drama. She tap dances between making out with him and accusing him of cheating since he's wearing the same clothes she saw him in yesterday. Karlie thinks the best way to keep tabs on him is to for them to move in together. That is a GREAT idea!
I know I say it every time I have to write about Snookiand company, but seriously, did any of you see this coming? I loved Jersey Shore, but I never thought the cast would end up actually maturing into calm, functioning members of society…and making cute babies to boot! Sure it was fun to watch them face plant in bars, fist pump in clubs, and tan until they were more orange than an Oompah Loompah, but I didn't realize it would be just as much fun to see the kind of people they've become. GTL4LIFE! Cabs ah heeya!
Snooki has since traded alligator slippers for diapers with the absolutely precious Lorenzo, and she's planning her dream wedding to fiance Jionni LaValle. The couple is expecting their second child together, and he or she will totally be besties with JWoww'supcoming new addition (a girl!)! In an adorable video posted by the reality star, Snooki and Lorenzo learn the gender of the new baby. Jionni has planned a reveal, and it's hilarious to see their reactions!
Blue or pink–what do you think?
