This weekend Alexis Bellino renewed her vows to Jim Bellino in an over-the-top wedding that wasn’t a wedding on David Tutera‘s CELEBrations. And I can see why all of Alexis’ Real Housewives of Orange County castmates couldn’t stand her because Alexis needs sedatives – or some sort of psychiatric drugs. She constantly throws tantrums and is mega attention seeking!
Alexis wants David at her beck and call and treats him like ‘the help’. Two queens don’t make a right! To add to the drama, David is also in the middle of planning his daughter Cielo’s first birthday party and is strapped for time.
Jim surprised Alexis with the concept of a ten-year anniversary renewal by hiring poor to David show up at their house unannounced while Alexis was ‘reading’ the Bible (translation: looking at a children’s picture book version of a Bible while wearing knock-off Chanel). Jim’s surprise gift is that he wants the party to be in a week and he wants something classy and elegant – the irony of classy and elegant being used to describe anything related to Alexis does not escape me. Or David, who smirks at the correlation.
Once a reality TV famewhore, always a reality TV famewhore, right?! To celebrate their ten-year anniversary, Alexis Bellino just renewed her vows to chimplant Jim Bellino in an over-the-top ceremony for WeTV’s ‘Celebrations‘ starring celebrity wedding planner David Tutera. Since being fired from Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis has been relatively quiet, but apparently she’s been trying to nab the former glory again.
According to reports Apollo is hurrying to finish a tell-all memoir before he begins serving his 8-year sentence. Apparently Apollo has to get the book done before heading to prison due to the law and he has hired multiple ghost writers to complete the project.
Joan Rivers, take-no-prisoners commentator on life, and a true icon passed away yesterday.
I’ve always loved Joan. I heard an NPR interview with her years ago where she described using humor and wit to pull herself up by her bootstraps after her husband’s suicide left her financially decimated and alone. It not only inspired me, it filled me with awe and had me bawling in the car. Joan never shied away from the truth – whether it was about herself or others. And it was that bravery that made her so beloved.
It’s women like Joan who have allowed me to do what I do today: have a job where I snark full-time to make people laugh, because she was one of the few who forged that path by demonstrating that women are irreverent, sarcastic, and that complaining can be therapeutic as well as entertaining. The Oscars will be sadder this year without Joan to question what celebs are wearing and what they were thinking when they put it on. I will miss her greatly.
Andy Cohen, a close friend of Joan’s who has worked with her for years, reminisced about the amazing woman he knew and shared that when she passed they were in the middle of pitching a reality show they developed together this summer.
Tameka Raymond, formerly married to Usher, is one of the driving forces behind new hit show Atlanta Exes. Already making a name for herself on the show as a drama starter with a ‘don’t care who I piss off’ attitude, Tameka’s ultra-famous ex is now speaking out about his former wife participating in a reality show which could very possibly put him and their former marriage in the hot seat!
There’s been rumors that Usher was extremely unhappy about Tameka potentially airing dirty laundry by appearing on the show, and he was allegedly worried that her inclusion in the reality TV world could damage his reputation.
Usher denies all this! “No, no. I have no feelings about it whatsoever,” Usher insists. “Actually, I haven’t even seen it.” Ushers two children with Tameka will not be part of the show.
But reality TV isn’t the only thing Kyle has going on, the mom of 4 and wife of Mauricio Umansky shares what made her return to the show, how filming is going, and gives her tips for keeping the sparks alive in her marriage!
Despite her marriage being a focal point last season as Maurico was accused of cheating by the tabloids and Kyle could not let go of blaming Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle claims she decided to give it another go for a fresh start. Calling her decision to return an easy decision, yeah right Kyle explains, “I think people thought, ‘oh she had so much conflict,’ and maybe I wouldn’t want to come back, but it wasn’t a hard decision this season. Other seasons have been a lot harder. We have a lot of conflict and issues, but ultimately I do care about these women and we do have a lot of fun together as well, so I was like, ‘ok, let’s do this’ [laughs].”
Tamra claims she will never be friends with Lizzie. Her reason: “Her unhealthy obsession and lies about me are rather weird.” Tamra claims Lizzie has been “going around the neighborhood” besmirching her reputation with lies. “Please stop twisting things,” she implores.
“The lies that come out of her mouth are so twisted and down right scary,” Tamra accuses. “The truth is I did not know her very well and never said a bad thing about her to anyone. I honestly thought she was a nice person until I witnessed her drunk and talking very crass about my husband because I did not make it to her birthday party.”
