The Real Housewives of Orange County's drama is never ending, but the ladies certainly seem to be ramping up their public appearances on the heels of all of the reunion insanity–and to think, we've got one more installment!
The O.G. of the O.C. Vicki Gunvalson continues to go on (and on and on and on) about her depleted love tank, and Gretchen Rossi is still devastated that her frienemies thought her proposal to Slade Smiley was just for the cameras. So it wasn't? What these ladies fail to realize is that they keep replaying the same old story lines…and the season is done filming!
Taking to her Bravo blog, Tina questions, "How dare I call cute little innocent babies "torture" you ask? I say that babies are torture because no one told me that I was going to become an emotional wreck after having my son. No, I’m not going through any sort of post-partum depression. I’ve always been super-sensitive and emotional as it is—and this little thing is so damn cute, that it has become downright torturous!" Tina is super-sensitive and emotional? I never would have guessed it!
Gloria has been vocal about leaving the show in the past (I'd always just assumed she wasn't asked to return, which could very well be the case), and it was rumored that VH1 was none to pleased when she eloped mid-season of BBW LA with NBA player Matt Barnes and did not invite camera crews to capture the nuptials. In your face, VH1!
And now I've heard everything. The ridiculously shady law suit between Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson's vodka partner and Brooks Ayers has now become even shadier, and who'd think that was even possible? It seems that now Brooks is suing Robert Williamson III (the same guy who is suing him) alleging slander and defamation. Why? He's claiming that Robert has been making claims that Brooks had hired a hit man to kill him! Murder for hire by Bravo!
Radar is reporting that the majority of the debacle went down via text message, and Brooks wants to clear his good (ahem) name. According to court documents filed in Las Vegas (I thought what happened there stayed there!), Robert and his wife Cate lured Vicki to a hotel room to fill her head with asinine falsehoods about Brooks including that he is a “dangerous guy who has threatened Plaintiff (Williamson) and his wife’s life” and that he “hired a hit man to kill plaintiff.” Oh, and he had a lot of STDs. I couldn't make this up if I tried!
Last night's Duck Dynasty got back to the roots of why I love this show so much. It wasn't super scripted, but it was hilarious, wholesome, and fun to watch. The episode followed Willie, Jase, and Si as they gave Martin a good-natured ribbing over a member of the opposite sex, and Phil was able to spend some quality time (even if he didn't ask for it) with some of his adorable grandchildren.
The Robertson boys are fishing, but Si's singing seems to be scaring off all potential catches. As Phil so eloquently puts it, "If fish were vampires, Si would be garlic, daylight, and a stake through the heart simultaneously."
The men plan for a poker night, but Martin bows out quietly. He's got a date! I'm kind of excited to learn this news because it means that Martin is still on the market. Call me maybe! Willie jokes that he's known Martin for ten years and he's been on one date…if Willie is being generous. Jase inquires as to whether Martin found this girl in a mail-order bride catalog.
Is there trouble in paradise for Hollywood's cutest, most normal, and highly revered husband and wife duo? I certainly hope not! However, it appears that Courtney Stodden will be spending some time apart from her main squeeze father figure number one tubster hubster Doug Hutchison.
Apparently, Courtney is making her way across the pond to participate in the U.K.'s version of Celebrity Big Brother. The only snag? Doug wasn't invited to join her! Bloody awkward!
Well, I don't know about y'all, but after Monday night's premiere of Basketball Wives, I'm curious to see where newbie Tasha Marbury fits in with this illustrious group of "ladies."
Tasha, who is married to former NBA star Stephon Marbury has admitted to agreeing to the show so that she had something independent of being known for the man she married. Stephon used to play for the Boston Celtics, and he's recently signed on to play in China for the Bejing Ducks. While that's great for him, I really just want his wife to make an appearance on BBW because she's rumored to ruffle Shaunie O'Neal's feathers!
Words can't even describe how much Basketball Wives'Shaunie O'Neal grates on my nerves. She doesn't own her inner mean girl, and she lets Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman do her bidding while she sits back feigning clean hands. This season is going to be no different, I presume.
However, on Monday's premiere, Nostrils promised to be more outspoken and not hold back in what she's thinking. Did I miss the part where she promises to be arrogant to the point of making me nauseous? Because she is.
