Last night we learned a few important lessons, mostly that we should never ever let the Real Housewives of any ilk attempt the outdoors. Like nice try Phaedra Parks, but just like your maxi dress, the Real Housewives aren’t a right fit for tents.
Getting out of Atlanta is itself a travail after Porsha Williams has surprise invited her sister Lauren to act as a human security blanket against Porsha’s highly tuned rage. While Porsha and Kenya Moore argue about the merits of their communication styles, Prophet Parks interjects commanding them to STOP and to remember they are all strong personalities who act out. Constantly.
The ladies can’t even get into the woods before fighting erupts over Porsha Williams‘ doctor’s note saying she needs to have a security blanket by having her sister Lauren come on the trip. Things go from bad to worse when the women learn the first night of the trip will be spent roughing it in tents.
A couple weeks out from her Vanderpump Rules exit, Lala Kent is reflecting on her experience and how she feels about her former co-stars. Namely that they’re egotistical bitches, and she’s relieved to no longer try and play nice with them.
Lala was a guest on the Just Sayin’ podcast, which is co-hosted by former Jersey Shore star Sammi Giancola. Lala also discussed her relationship with James Kennedy, the non-disclosure agreement, and what’s she learned from dealing with mean girls.
Since making peace with Teresa Giudice in a much-publicized yoga pic, Danielle has said she’s finally ready to take another turn as a Housewife, so with Teresa officially done with Jacqueline Laurita it seems there’s no better time!
Sources reveal that it’s not certain if Danielle will be an “official Housewife” or only a friend for season 8, which hasn’t started filming yet.
Lipsa may have been having a “mad moment” when she told Eden all about Kim Richards‘ very non-sober life (allegedly!), but Eden remembered every single word, which propelled her annoying badgering of the Twisted Sisters Richards about needing her help. Eden, tired of being hung out to dry in the cold whipping winds of Housewives, came to pay her respect to the queen, Lisa Vanderpump, beseeching her to advocate on her behalf.
After Lindsay drunkenly announced that Cristina was fired from her job, she got in a car and slapped Everett in the face for “being rude.” This erupted into a house-wide drunken fight during which Kyle just slurred “sorry” at a bag of chips approximately 300 times, until Everett dumped Lindsay, who hid under the covers until Ashely Wirkus came to console her.
We’ve been ranking all the Real Housewives from every season, every franchise and its finally down to the final few. The queens of Bravo, if you will. Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of our ranking.
What separates a good Housewife from a great one? For me, it’s the longevity of their dramas. Will their actions or comments forever define a franchise as Teresa Giudice‘s table flip did for New Jersey, or NeNe Leakes‘ “Close your legs to married men, Wig!” on Atlanta? A great Housewife doesn’t necessarily have to be likable, but she does have to be memorable, and defining. When you think of a particular show which Housewife comes to mind.
