Y'all realize that Shaunie O'Neal is laughing all the way to the bank, right? The Basketball Wives creator and Executive Producer thinks she has a franchise hit on her hands, although, has she watched the L.A. version?
She doesn't care about how the women are perceived, she just cares about the ratings, and she pretty much says just that in a recent interview. I can't say I'm surprised, but you'd think that Shaunie would at least have the sense to keep her smugness to herself. Who I am kidding, this is Nostrils we're talking about!
What happened on last night's Dance Moms should have stayed on last night's Dance Moms…okay, so that didn't really work, but you get the Vegas reference, right? Abby Lee Miller is probably upset that her behavior didn't stay in Vegas, because, dare I say, she actually showed a glimmer of humanity and emotion about her fallout with Kelly.
I can't say I'm excited to see the pyramid back in action after such a nice hiatus. The moms aren't satisfied with Abby's nonexistent reason for her past absences, but Abby doesn't care. She didn't want to be around people who treat her negatively. Kelly and Abby get into it over who did or didn't make a spectacle in Orlando when someone should have (or shouldn't have) moved seats. When Kelly calls her out for acting like Kathy, Abby says that it wasn't Kathy's behavior that always rattled her, it was her reaction to Kathy's behavior that rattled her. Has someone been doing some self-reflection?
Before Abby unveils the girls' ranking in the pyramid, Holly questions how she made her decision given that she's skipped the last two competitions. Duh, score cards! Paige is at the bottom because she's Kelly's daughter, but also because she needs to be a more technical dancer. Brooke follows her sister for her recent fourth place solo. Nia is third from the bottom…not because she doesn't try, but because it's just not clicking for her. Kendall rounds out the bottom for being inconsistent and performing better in rehearsal than competition. MacKenzie is on the tail end of the second tier for careless mistakes, followed by Asia who is improving each week. Maddie takes the second spot because Abby thinks she needs to setting her goals higher. Chloe has finally made it back to the top of the pyramid.
I don't consider myself naive usually. Sure, I have my blonde moments, but I have to say I am disappointed in myself that it never crossed my mind that the Kardashian kover-up krew could be perpetuating the rumors of Lamar Odom'sdrug abuse.
Now, don't get me wrong, I wasn't born yesterday. Lamar is no angel (I'm assuming he does suffer from addiction and a penchant for bedding women who aren't his wife), but it's the deluge in which the gossip is coming that sounds a lot like Kris Jenner is trying to make him seem like a total asshat. If he does have serious problems, he needs help, not a public shaming…although we all seem to be hoping it works for Miley. She can't be tamed, though.
Radar sources share that Lamar “absolutely believes Khloe’s family has been leaking stories to the tabloid press about his drug use, and his trip to rehab last year. Khloe has been very private about Lamar’s drug addiction, as she had done for the past year."
No matter what happens,Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey will always end up smelling as sweet as a product from her Milania hair care line…at least in her own mind! After a very Zen like trip to Arizona, Teresa is still catching heat for her role (she had nothing–NOTHING–to do with it!) in Melissa Gorga stripper-gate, as well as the Karma-will-come-back-your-kids comment she made to Jacqueline Laurita. To be totally honest, I never thought Tre was targeting little Nicolas with that statement…not because she's not that mean, but because she's not that quick on her feet! I kid.
SomeoneTeresa takes to her Bravo blog to set the record straight. She begins, "I was really happy after the Milania Hair Care party, because I felt like Penny had put the rumors about me being involved in any Melissa rumors to rest once and for all. Apparently, though, she didn't. I guess no one could. My brother and Melissa are going to believe whatever they want to believe — even if dead people are telling them!"
I had no clue what to expect after last week's premiere of the Feel Sorry for the Mean Girls. Evelyn Lozada can only cry so much, right? Tami Roman quickly shed her sweet ways on last night's Basketball Wives, and I was surprised at how easy it was for her to manipulate Suzie Ketcham into being her puppet. Speaking of puppets, the puppet master Shaunie O'Neal just sat back and watched smugly as things began to unravel, nostrils flaring and all!
Evelyn is meeting up with Tasha Marbury, Evelyn's longtime friend and wife of Stephon Marbury. The women are grabbing cocktails in Los Angeles. Evelyn's fingernail polish makes her look like she just got slimed by some ectoplasm. She ain't afraid of no ghosts! Seriously, it's so distracting. I can barely keep up with Tasha dishing about her husband's new life playing basketball in China while Evelyn moans about her still strong spiritual connection with Chad.
Tami is bonding with her daughters over basketball and driving skills. Her youngest is concerned when her mom offers to give her lessons…after all, both girls know just how "impatient" their mother is if things don't go exactly her way. Just how did all these crazed women wind up with such sweet, grounded children? Does the hateful, hair-pulling gene skip a generation?
You know how you totally forget some people even exist until they thrust themselves back into the news? Yeah, that's how I feel about Jon and Kate Gosselin. The reality stars with their brood of children are now more famous for their acrimonious divorce than their TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8.
While Kate has traded her role as America's Sweetheart (I couldn't even type that with a straight face) for that of couponing queen, I do kind of miss Jon's Ed Harvey antics when he was palling around with Michael Lohan. Thanks to a new lawsuit, we may be seeing more of the dreadful duo!
As with all celebrity rumors, where there is smoke, there's usually fire. At least that seems to be the case when it comes to the gossip surrounding the demise of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage.
Some super classy ladies have been coming out of the woodwork and selling sharing stories of their affairs with the married NBA player. Now, it seems that Khloe has kicked Lamar out of their home…and not just because of the infidelity, but because of the drug abuse she is convinced led him down that path.
Sometimes I just want to see Kody Brown's hair blowing in the breeze when I watch Sister Wives. I don't want to hear Meri whining or Christine jabbering on about the family's mission statement while Janelle quietly plans her mistake. I certainly don't want to be treated to a little ditty about Robyn's first sexual experience!
The cul-de-sac compound is in full swing, and all of the children are excited to be in such close proximity. Kody's hair is more feathered than normal, and he's looking forward to the first family church service in the new homes. While Kody leads his family in a lesson and has asked his wives to contribute. This week, Robyn will be dishing on chastity and sexual purity. Perhaps that will wake up the teens who are nodding off during Kody's service.
