Brandi Maxiell is this season's newest addition to Basketball Wives: LA, but she's been through enough in her life to stay above the petty drama of her co-stars. In 2007, when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age twenty-four. She discusses beating the odds and dealing with the pettiness of the other ladies of BBW: LA, save for friend Malaysia Pargo.
Speaking to Life & Style, Brandi shares, “When I was diagnosed, I had just graduated from college and I was engaged, so I thought I was going to come to Detroit [where she was living at the time], live with my fiancé and I thought I was going to have a lifetime of fun. Literally three weeks of me living in Detroit, I started to feel all these symptoms and my life went for a turn.”
I'd been crossing my fingers that Kaftan Kyle Richards would be returning to Witch Mountain with sister Kim. However, some insiders are claiming that she is hoping for a pay raise along side new friend Brandi Glanville, former friend Lisa Vanderpump, and lemon loving Yolanda Foster. There's strength in numbers even if those numbers can't stand one another, I suppose!
There's been so much nastiness from Abby Lee Miller on this season (the longest ever it seems!) of Dance Moms, I guess Lifetime wanted to bring back Kathy and the Candy Apples for some unrelated drama.
The episode begins with Abby revealing that she would be bringing in a new girl named Fallon who shined at one of her open auditions. Fallon and mom Cheryl arrive as Abby corrals all of the dancers and moms for the pyramid. Abby does introductions, and Cheryl's face looks like it can't move. The moms look defeated as usual, and Abby laments how difficult it is to build an entire new team. Kalani is out because mother Kira didn't abide by Abby's rules, which apparently is never say that your daughter can beat Maddie.
It's the second installment of Manlow and Krayonce, and man, do I want this to be a spin-off, but in cartoon form! I don't want Marlo Hampton and Kenya Moore to get their own show per se, but how awesome would these two larger than life Real Housewives of Atlanta characters be when portrayed in Japanese anime?
You know who thinks that would be a horrible idea? NeNe Leakes. She is perturbed by the very shady and very thirsty duo. In the Neenster's mind, Kenya and Marlo are just bit players trying to steal a star's thunder. Oh, the dramatic antics of the Peach State! If you caught Sunday's episode of RHOA, you know exactly to what I'm referring!
I was worried that Ramona Singer's divorce from husband Mariowas going to put a kink in Turtle Time, but that doesn't appear to be the case. In fact, the Real Housewives of New York star doesn't seem the least bit phased by her situation. Perhaps Pinot really is a cure-all…at least that's what I'll tell myself!
The couple had been married for twenty-five years when Ramona filed for divorce after learning that Mario had allegedly gotten his mistress pregnant and paid for her to get an abortion. Ramona recently joined former RHONY co-star Bethenny Frankel on Bethenny's talk show to discuss how she's coping.
Holy crap! Charleston is totally going to RavenHell in a hand basket courtesy of Bravo. So, since last week, pretty much all anyone in this town is talking about is how horrible (and somewhat addictive) Southern Charm is. Well, played Andy Cohen. You are a true evil genius. My Facebook newsfeed was filled with friends who were posting pictures of themselves with these yahoos, and I couldn't tell if they are star struck or legitimate friends with the cast of this show. Is one of those scenarios better than the other?
Thomas Ravenel calls his father to talk about a chance meeting with Governor Nikki Haley at a Yankee fundraiser and implore him to start procreating to ensure the family's future. T-Rav reminds us that his dirty political consultant Will Folks wants him to pick the pedigreed Kathryn Dennis for a bride and child bearer (spoiler alert…she is about to have his child in "real time"), but at thirty years his junior (if you go by his birth certificate and not his Bravo bio), T-Rav is concerned that she may be too immature for him. Well, she did graduate from high school in 2009, but some snooping reveals that their burgeoning relationship is totally Facebook official. The pair even thanks "Sic Willie" for his matchmaking skills on T-Rav's page. Gag. That's a relief. T-Rav is traveling to Edisto to give a polo lesson to Shep's ex-girlfriend Danni, and he's great at skeeving me out by molesting her with his eyes and talking about how comfortable she looks in the saddle.
Also, Lisa Vanderpump paved the way for Bravo housewives on the dance competition, and she has some sound advice for competitor NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She knows that it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to make it on the show, but Lisa promises NeNe that it's worth every minute!
The guest list for Kim Kardashian and the tiny rapper's intimate wedding may have just gotten smaller by two people. While the producers of Keeping up with the Kardashians want to film yet another of Kim's weddings for the show (they need a story line, y'all!), putting the hoopla affair on E! may cost Kanye West his desired best man.
As Kim preps for her big day (shouldn't be too hard to plan for given that it's her third), sister Khloe Kardashian is strutting her stuff now that she's newly single. She sported the above outfit (is she going for hillbilly dominatrix?) while attending a Rick Ross concert. I guess she doesn't want to get lost in the shuffle, but I doubt that outfit will help Kim convince Beyonce that her wedding to Yeezy will be a classy affair!
