I’ve got to give it to one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbies. Can Kathryn Edwards blog or can Kathryn Edwards blog? While her entries may be a bit verbose (so I love them, but I’ve cut some content), Kathryn maneuvers the Internet like a professional. She may not always make the best impressions while filming, but Kathryn is thoughtful and calculated enough to express herself in her Bravo blogs in a manner that makes her appear both sincere and balanced. Who’s taking sides? Not Kathryn! At least, not really…girlfriend should teach a class. Co-star Eileen Davidson could benefit…
She rehashes this week’s episode with panache. Starting with a slew of compliments for Yolanda Foster (K-Ed knows never to kick a RHOBH star when they’re down), Kathryn writes, “I hope this time of year finds everyone well…I love spring as everything turns green and begins to bloom again. Last week you saw a few of us ladies (Yolanda, Kyle [Richards], Erika [Girardi] and I) head to New York to attend Yolanda’s Global Lyme Alliance gala. Well tonight you got to see the event and hear some of the honorees speak of their battle with Lyme. I was so appreciative to be invited and attend this event for a few reasons–namely, to support Yolanda in her battle against this very debilitating disease while trying to bring awareness to it and help others.”
Y’all. Y’all. Is it just me, or is Kenya Moore vying to be the most hypocritical housewife in the history of housewives? In asking that question, I am not even taking into consideration the fact that Krayonce has never been a wife, because we all know that’s not a prerequisite with Bravo!
After her grand showing on the reunion, where she received more shade from Andy Cohen than I’ve ever seen him dole out, Kenya is back teasing fans about a potential pregnancy and calling out co-star Phaedra Parks for shaming her skin tone. Note to self, it’s fine for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star to talk smack about anyone and everyone, but it’s certainly not okay for any of her cast mates to retaliate. What’s that old adage about not dishing it if you can’t take it? Just kidding! Those rules don’t apply to twirling!
After allowing Jill to watch over Kalani in Los Angeles, on last night’s episode Kira returned to Dance Moms. Is it bad I’d forgotten she’d left? She and Ashlee pretend that the other doesn’t exist while they speak horribly about each other just a few feet away from the other. Jill is happy to have Kira back as she considers Ashlee to be a giant bully. Oh really? Abby Lee Miller is in rare form, cheering for last week’s group win. This week isn’t a pyramid, and Abby plans to go backwards. The sisters Ziegler are sharing the top spot…Maddie for winning her solo, and MacKenzie for garnering a scholarship to the Pittsburgh chapter of the ALDC. There’s still a studio there? Nia, Kalani, Kendall, and Brynn share the second tier, and Abby shares they are evenly placed. JoJo is on the bottom because someone has to be.
At this week’s competition, Abby will be entering two trios which means one girl be dancing. Abby crowns both Brynn and Maddie as the captains of their trio, making the choice who will be part of their routine. Jill interrupts to determine how Abby chose the leaders, and Ashlee tries to quickly quiet her. Brynn picks Kalani and MacKenzie while Maddie chooses Kendall and JoJo. Nia tries to pretend that it doesn’t bother her, but she’s clearly crushed. Abby promises that if Brynn’s solo wins, she’s secured a spot on the ALDC team. The group routine this week will be based on a commercial she has signed up the girls to team, and the girls cheer at the return of Todrick. The mothers are a tad wary. Abby doesn’t often play well–or collaborate–with others. The moms know that Abby can’t focus on more than one task (if that), so if she’s freaking out about the commercial, the competition routines are sure to suffer.
So, I don’t know what you did last night, but I fell down a rabbit hole which caused my IQ to drop to the single digits while perusing Brielle Biermann’s Twitter feed and catching up with Kim Zolciak-Biermann on Instagram. To be honest, I may have been looking at the same person’s social media presence. I can’t tell if Brielle is morphing into her mother or vice versa, but I did a double take on a photo of Kim that I could have sworn was Brielle. Also, take a peek at Brielle’s Twitter profile picture…is it of her or Kim. I can’t be sure…but remember, I’m lacking much of my brain capacity just to bring you this story.
The Don’t Be Tardy stars love being on your small screen, but they are both hoping to branch out from Bravo…Kim as a stage mom for the next generation of Biermann babies and Brielle as the most dramatic (and ridiculous) Bachelor contestant ever to grace the presence of Chris Harrison. So, I guess that E! co-hosting gig didn’t work out?
So, that Real Housewives of Atlantareunion, huh? Kim Fields finally found her voice (although it’s likely too late for any hopes of a sophomore season for her–more on that in a second!), and Kenya Moore seems oblivious to the notion of hypocrisy. It was entertaining, to say the least, and Andy Cohen shared and received his fair share of shade.
Of course, one of the co-stars stayed above the fray (at least so far), but it’s probably because she’s got bigger fish to fry…literally. Move over, Kim Richards! There is a new housewife joining the most epic movie franchise in the history of mankind! After remaining relatively mum on the first installment of last night’s RHOA reunion, Cynthia Baileyis apparently saving her acting chops for more serious projects…like Sharknado 4. Yes, you read that correctly!
Y’all. I for real cannot get the image of Kenya Moore as the Grinch out of my head. Krayonce’s epic holiday costume on the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta is sure to haunt my dreams. It was truly amazing. That said, there has been some over-the-top drama in the show’s eighth season, and I’m sure the reunion is going to be just as insane.
In the meantime, Kandi Burruss is treating us to her take on the return of NeNe Leakes, the downfall of her friendship with Phaedra Parks, and those pesky rumors about newbie Kim Fields’ husband. Yikes! Kandi addresses the visit the FEDs paid to her home to collect some of Apollo Nida’s things and reveals her initial concern that the reunion would be dull. With this crew? Never!
I’m easy to please, but Bravo’s spring line-up seems like it was created with just me in mind. I never realized just how much Andy Cohen loved me until now! 😉 Obviously, Andy has no clue who I am and Bravo is just appeasing the masses with the shows we love to watch, but I can’t help but think it’s a bit tailored to suit my binge-viewing. That’s right, folks! Get ready for some real estate porn, Manhattan style, courtesy of Ryan Serhant, Fredrik Eklund, and Luis D. Ortiz.
The multi-million dollar property peddling, Big Apple realtors are returning to Bravo! The fifth season of the Emmy-nominated Million Dollar Listing: New York is back with a super-sized 90-minute premiere on Thursday, April 21st at 9 PM ET/PT. As someone who works in real estate, this series is especially near and dear to my heart. I could look at listings all day long. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that two years ago I got to tout the show with an interview with Ryan (it may seem like a shameless plug, but I was so incredibly starstruck and he was nothing but kind and humble…the antithesis of his reality persona) where he revealed he was in love with the woman who is now his fiance.
I’m not going to lie, it’s been a rough start (in my eyes, at least) for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Kathryn Edwards. At times I think she’s a refreshing addition to the cast, and others–sheesh–she needs to dial it back a bit! However, on this week’s episode, she seemed very genuine, fun and humble. I truly enjoy her dynamic with her husband (how precious is he?), and I appreciated her ability to apologize sincerely to Erika Girardi’shusband.
Revisiting Monday’s shenanigans, Kathryn recaps, “This was an exciting week for me for several reasons. First and foremost, my ear doctor’s appointment for my hearing aid. I want to clarify with everyone who might have questions about this device…I am still completely deaf in my right ear. The device is called The Phonak CROS. It picks up sound on my deaf side and transmits the sound to the ear I can hear with. So now, when someone sits on the right side (my deaf ear) and talks, I can hear them. Also, it magnifies the sound of everything, making it as close to what a person with normal hearing would hear.”
