It seems like no one Vanderpump Rules can get along unless there’s a party involved. Add a celebrity to that equation and they are besties! This weekend the cast attended a Foo Fighters concert and ended up backstage partying with frontman Dave Grohl!
Ariana Madix and Kristen Doute were even able to put aside their differences long enough to drink with a rock star. Hopefully no cheating was involved… although that could get very exciting! #MustSeeTV!
John Bonavia appeared on MM in March 2014 and was described as a financial advisor worth more than $1 million. The former model was stuck in the party boy mentality and running in a wealthy Hollywood circle. As he turned 30, John was ready to settle down and Patti hope to find him a woman who would encourage him to grow up. Guess that didn’t turn out to well!
Back at Shannon’s Aries party, Tamra Judge is spitting mad that Vicki is allowing Brooks to call her a liar and a backstabber. The unladylike doth protests too much!
Tamra believes Vicki is so influenced by Brooks (and his lies) she may be turning into Brooks! Shannon is hard-pressed to believe that the never, ever dim-witted Vicki could be bamboozled by a con man, so possibly, just possibly, she knows Brooks is faking cancer but is going along with it. Even Tamra can’t believe that – or at least that’s what Tamra is telling the cameras because the only time Tamra has Vicki’s back is when she’s stabbing it!
When one plastic surgery obsessed Kim seeks solace in another! Kim Zolciak is currently in LA appearing on Dancing With The Stars, and while in town she had an emergency of the facial droop-age sort. Describing herself as desperate for Botox, she turned to a source she knew could help a girl out in a jam: Kim Kardashian! Well, Kim Kardashian’s facial scientist, at least.
Kim Z praised Dr. Ourian‘s amazing cool laser skills on instagram and gushed about his flawless skin creating abilities. I guess these things matter when dancing on national television. Kim has visited Dr. Ourian before – she and Brielle flew out there for some facial work and schmoozed with Khloe. Kylie Jenner also credits Dr. Ourian for being the one who ‘fixed’ her crazy lip injections.
Gretchen Rossi may not know much, but she certainly knows a thing or two about being judged for the company you keep and the integrity of your significant other! While Vicki Gunvalson and her now-ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers are being judged and questioned constantly, Gretchen has certainly walked a mile in Vicki’s Manolos and is imparting some advice.
It is pretty uncanny that Gretchen and Vicki’s lives have some eerily similar parallels. The boyfriend nobody likes (or trusts), the significant other with cancer, the constantly having to defend your love and your relationship to people who barely know you…
Last night’s Manzo’d With Children was brought to you by the letter V. V as in Vito Scalia, but also for “Vessel,” losing your Manzo Virginity, and Visiting the library. But mostly V is for Vito and all the ways he is passive aggressively trying to use his voice. (V is for Voice).
Lauren Manzo‘s wedding will include 300 hundred people and 300 hundred Italian traditions, but only one corsage. Vito’s mom, Denise, comes over, pushing her dog in a stroller, to see where her son will be spending the rest of his remaining days. Lauren asks her if she wants a corsage at the wedding – of course she does! She’s the mother of the groom and that is an honor that must be signified. Caroline Manzo “wouldn’t be caught dead in a corsage.” She describes Vito’s mother as a “firecracker” and explains they’re different, yet the same.
Time for some standardized test prep! Different, but similar-style with Caroline and Denise.
The Kardsahians are the engine that never stops! It seems nothing can dent the first family of famewhoring and now that the Keeping Up With The Kardashian sisters have launched a slew of new apps they are slated to earn millions!
On Monday each of the Kardashian sisters (except for Kourtney) launched a separate app. Each with a subscription fee of $2.99 per month. With a huge surge of fan downloads garnered nearly 900,000 followers within a few hours of their release. In fact, totaling the collective subscriptions could net as much as $32 million for the Kardashians in one year alone!
Leading the pack in downloads was littlest sister Kylie Jenner who has been forging her own path to fame and attention.
Last night Real Housewives Of New York turned 100 and kept it 100! Andy Cohen checked in one-on-one with all of the current cast, Aviva Drescher, and also Kelly Bensimon who shared some really illumination information about her version of Scary Island, the issues with Bethenny Frankel, and more. It made me all the more le sad that Le’ Ladies New York are done for this season!
It’s clear that Bethenny has become the omnipotent narrator of RHONY; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-describing prophet who speaks of success and failures with aplomb and certainty. It’s not a bad role for her, and she clearly relishes in it (and clearly isn’t glad her talk show ended!).
For the 100th episode, I was pleasantly surprised how candid and willing the ladies were to share their side of the stories – and I’m also super glad Bravo allowed them to really go IN. I appreciated Bravo not pretending viewers don’t understand things such as editing!
