Got an extra 80 grand burning a hole in your pocket and not sure what to buy with it? Do you have a special someone in your life who enjoys camo and water fowl and you plan on spending a literal fortune on them this holiday season? If so, the gang from Duck Dynasty has the perfect gift for you!
Back before they were international celebrities, best-selling authors, and chart-topping recording artists (more on that in a bit), Phil Robertson built an empire making duck calls. Now A&E is auctioning off the one millionth call produced in 2013 with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause.
On Friday morning, Brandi tweeted, "I really wish a certain pare shapes bugged eyed "COCK" tail waitress would stop riding my coat tails." Yes, pare shapes. I wonder to whom Brandi could be referring? While Scheana seems to be the obvious target for Brandi's twitterhate, she's hardly using Brandi's celebrity to bolster her own–she doesn't need to. She has her tooth surgery story to garner attention. No, I'm serious.
It's time for Parenting 101 from Bethenny Frankel, y'all! You know you love it when she doles out advice. The reality star turned talk show host is sharing a very important parenting lesson that is near and dear to her heart, and she also revealing the one thing her daughter will never hear her say.
If you thought she was going to say that her daughter will never hear her talk trash about soon-to-be ex-husbandJason Hoppy(that's what I assumed!), think again. Bethenny, who admits to once being obsessed with dieting, reveals that she doesn't want three-year-old Bryn to grow up thinking that enjoying food is a bad thing. She makes she refrains from speaking negatively about weight and diets in front of her daughter. Actually, as much as I like to poke fun at Bethenny, she makes a good point (who knew?).
Yeezy is innocent, y'all. Well, maybe not innocent technically, but not guilty…at least according to him. Remember when the tiny rapper punched a member of the paparazzi in July while having his picture snapped at LAX? Well, the photographer Daniel Ramos finally had his day in court yesterday. How did that go? Let's just say that Kanye West may have interrupted his Honor to tell him that Judge Mathis is the best damn judge…
Okay, that totally didn't happen, but probably only because Kanye wasn't present in court. But if it did, Kanye would be correct!
And Vanderfabulous is back with a vengeance! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Lisa Vanderpump is tired of being accused of being the secret mouthpiece of the 'loids, and can you blame her? If I had to drink every time Kyle Richards insinuated that Lisa's smiling joke delivery was really the most vicious insult ever, I would've passed out before the first episode was even half over!
In her Bravo blog this week, Lisa addresses the tabloid rumors that follow the ladies of Bravo to no end while hinting that she should have been more in tune to how concerned Kyle was about Yolonda Foster's alleged lie. She even manages to get in a few very veiled digs at Splits too, which I absolutely love. Is she throwing shade? It's so subtle I can't tell! Lisa begins with Kyle's Chamber of Commerce party, writing, "Kyle had asked me to cater an event for her. It isn't something we often do — to take our chef away from the restaurant. Transporting the food and staff is just too complicated to ever be worthwhile. While I am there, Kyle brings up the fact that there have been stories created about her being pregnant. I also mentioned that I had seen the articles about Mauricio cheating. I would prefer face-to-face to acknowledge them, and then in the same breath ridicule the constant nonsense that is often in these tabloids.
Well this news makes the wino in my incredibly happy, happy, happy! You know, usually I get a little tired of reality stars just haphazardly slapping their name on any product that will make money, but I think I'd buy denture cream or incontinence pads or even (gag!) mayonnaise if the Robertsons were selling it! That isn't to say that the Duck Dynasty crew will endorse any old thing. They clearly have a clear vision of their brand. However, their newest venture is going to become a staple at my house without a doubt!
Willie Robertson has just announced that Duck Commander Wines will hit stores this month. I. Cannot. Wait. See, I knew it wasn't just a scripted plot line when Willie decided he wanted to get more into wine and art a few seasons ago. I'm sure the varietals will be perfect for the dining room to the deer stand! Feel free to call me, Willie, if you'd like to use that tagline!
I guess if we have to live in a world where attention seekers are rewarded for bad behavior and outrageous shenanigans, I may as well be entertained by them, right? And I definitely find Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville to be, um, entertaining.
While Brandi's certainly not the reality star I'd want to hang out with on a regular basis (but should Theresa Caputo, Curtis Stone, orLisa Vanderpump feel so inclined…call me!), she is crass and sassy which are two of the characteristics I'm drawn to in friends. She isn't afraid to let it all hang out (literally…how could you forget this?) in the Twitterverse, her best-selling book, and now her online podcast aptly titled Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. Bravo breaks down her premiere episode where she shares several revelations ranging from taking a copycat Kim Kardashianbooty-bearing selfie to having high cholesterol from her diet.
