Raise your hand if you want to see more of Tamra Barney Judge! Anyone? Anyone at all? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Real Housewives of Orange County is planning an infiltration of your televisions, and she's not even keeping her take-over to the realm of reality television!
Tamra is going to be guest starring on USA's Royal Pains which returns this summer. No word on whether she'll be playing herself getting a little extra work done…but my guess is yes! The unfiltered Bravolebrity is also teasing about a potential spin-off of her CUT gym with husband Eddie Judge. Of course, this is speculation on my part, but isn't that the fun part?
So who would have ever thought that Jon Gosselin would be reconciling with ex-wife Kate? It's crazy, right? I'm kidding, of course! The former Jon & Kate Plus Eight stars still despise one another, but I needed a good teaser. The pair is once again at odds in the media (because being pissed at each other in private doesn't garner any attention).
Lashing out about his wife's decision to feature their twins and sextuplets on a TLC update special, Jon is expressing his disgust and disappointment with the fact he wasn't asked to be included at the lengths Kate will go to in exploiting their children. You know, I was truly on Jon's side until I watched him on Couples Therapy. Geez. Cue the violins!
So it appears that MTV is going to continue its grand plan to shed light on the epic social problem of teen pregnancies by continuing to glorify pregnant teens, giving them a hefty check, and making them pseudo-celebrities. It's been working thus far. I mean, just look at how mature Farrah Abraham is thanks to the network's influence! Of course, actual intelligent people who are touted with research on such subjects are out to prove me wrong.
According to MTV's Remote Control, economists from Wellesley College and the University of Maryland have determined that 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom have led to a reduction in teen pregnancy by 5.7 percent, or about 20,000 births every year since the first show premiered in 2009. If you want to get super technical, that's one less birth by a teen every half hour. I guess that would explain why the network has announced another season which will follow twelve new pregnant teens.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Joyce begins, "Hola MisAmores! Last night was my Queen of the Universe event, and I am so happy with the turnout. We had a full house of supportive and loving friends, family, and fans. I am truly thankful!!! I want to especially thank my beautiful friends and Housewives, Kyle [Richards] and Lisa, who supported me. It meant the world to me that you were there and served as judges to decide the Queen of the Universe 2014," adding, "Last week I told you all that I would make an announcement at my event. I am proud to say that all the hard work and the efforts in my charity will pay off this year as I am opening my first Kindergarten for children in need in Senegal, Africa. Like I said last night at my event, I can't wait to see the smiles of all the children who so deserve a chance to a better future, which we can only grant them through education. That has always been my dream and I thank God that soon it will become a reality."
What's better than housewife has beens when it comes to rating gold on Watch What Happens Live? That's right…house-husbands! When two former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars appeared in Andy Cohen's clubhouse, the ladies garnered the talk show's second highest ratings for the year thus far…and no one even had to tug a wig!
In her Bravo blog, Lisa Vanderpump dives right in on the first part of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. What's better than your everyday fabulous Lisa? A Lisa that's snarky, pissed off, and not going to take it anymore! After her co-stars unsuccessfully tried to vilify her this season, Lisa has decided to take off her gloves and come out swinging. She spends the majority of her diatribe chastising Yolanda Foster for crying about Hollywood friends, but she saves her best jabs for former friend Brandi Glanville…and the best part? She never even gives Brandi the recognition by using her name. It's perfection.
The RHOBH star begins, "Hello to you all again. An earthquake this morning. That was pretty violent as things crashed around us, seems to be an indication of what lies ahead today.And here we have the first part of the trilogy that wraps up our fourth season, a season that will forever be etched in my mind as where you have all been promised to see the exposé of my true character…"
Well, at least no animals were harmed in the making of Joanna Krupa's anniversary gift…however, we can't be sure if blood diamonds and/or child labor were involved. The Real Housewives of Miami star just celebrated seven years with her new husband Romain Zago, and he made sure to make it memorable.
Sure, the traditional anniversary present for year one is paper, but year seven? It's opulence and living outside of your means. But who am I to judge? I certainly wouldn't have turned down the beautifully designed necklace dripping with I-don't-know-how-many-bazillion-karats of diamonds either. To say Romain gives great gifts would be the understatement of the year!
After opining about her shopping trip to Crystals 'R Us to stock up calming objects to combat the negativity of the reunion (all of the women should have followed her lead!), Carlton begins her Bravo blog, "Let's face it, I think I have said all I have had to say this whole bloody season. Nothing held back. I really don't want to repeat it again. Honestly I have no regrets. I've said everything that was on my mind. Made it abundantly clear who I like and who are trolls that belong under a bridge. I wished deep in my heart that you had truly gotten an enlightened view about my faith and beliefs, without the dumb background music. Introduced you properly to my incredible husband and family on the level that I deal with everyday, my beautiful and talented girlfriends who I love and only want the very f—ing best for, and my gorgeous nanny who I trust the lives with all of our three children."
