It’s hard to believe that Amber Portwood is only 25 because she has lived through so much: teen pregnancy and motherhood, drug addiction, prison, reality television, dysfunctional relationships – and Gary Shirley! With all of the worst portions of her life reflected back to her via reality TV and social media, Amber is focused on moving forward.
Amber took a break from reality TV to spend time in prison. Since being released 2-years-ago she has been working hard to get her life together – including losing weight. As a bonus Amber found love (ish?) resulting in a bizarre engagement to much older man, Matt Baier, whom she calls “the love of my life.” Matt was recently exposed for having 7 secret kids, which the Teen Mom OG star vehemently denies.
“He doesn’t have seven kids but he does have more than what people know because we decided to keep it private,” maintains Amber. “It’s nobody’s business.” Except you’re on the TeeVee there makin’ it our biznits.
I admit I often find Kenya Moore frustrating, but I sincerely enjoyed seeing her communicate with her father Ronald. There was a rawness to Kenya in those scenes and it explained, for me, a lot of what makes Kenya tic, errrrr… twirl.
Kenya admits confronting her father with the past was “very difficult,” but it was very necessary.”We both needed closure.”
The results were cathartic. “My father is a lot of things, but he has never been emotional around me. He is prideful, strong-willed, and stubborn as hell. I am my father’s daughter. I was shocked to see tears come from his eyes,” shares the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star.
Last year NeNe co-hosted several successful episodes with the celebrity fashion smacktalk show. And People confirms that the on-again/off-again Real Housewives Of Atlanta star will once again be joining Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski to debate the dress-sense of celebrities far better dressed than NeNe herself!
The girls are packing, which means a secret and exalted Bravo ritual known as CLOSET TOURS!
First and foremost – unfortunately – we are in the mumu factory. Tucked deep in a corner of Beverly Hill is a tiny, cluttered, neon-covered, eye-searingly printed lair known as Kyle Richards‘ dressing room. Ironically one of the closet rods actually collapses under the kaftan weight and refuses to be put right. Girl – that’s a sign! Even Porsha, aged 7, refused to help Kyle put the bar back up – she shot mama a knowing side-eye that said, “Things happen for a reason.” MmmmHmmmm…
The highlights – OK, lowlights, are below. And no, we’re not bullying Brandi by PULLING direct quotes from her so don’t try it. It’s not our fault her truth cannons sometimes self-detonate!
First of all Nik is so freaking cheesy. He sucks up to Brandi hardcore and she takes the bait. Then they rehash every. single. dramatic moment of Brandi’s life, but I do like Nik’s voice and he asks insightful questions.
The old saying goes there’s three-sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth. But when it comes to Real Housewives Of Atlanta there’s at least 63 sides to every story and probably none of them contain the truth. This season Phaedra Parks is being accused of withholding money she owes Todd Tucker over a prenatal workout video they worked on 3 years ago.
“The issue of me owing money to Todd Tucker for production of a prenatal workout video has gotten completely misrepresented and needlessly become the source of harsh feelings,” Phaedra begins in her Bravo blog. “Let me set the record straight for those who lack the necessary rudiments.”
In cold hard realities, the “A” Tom 1 drunkenly tattooed on his ass stands for Adulting. Tom 1 spent 15 drunken minutes getting inked, but now wants his 15 minutes back. Ariana Madix escorts him to Dat Tat Off, the world’s most professional tattoo removal parlor, which is coincidentally managed by Kristen Doute‘s Machiavellian friend, who happens to be wearing black and white stripes. Tom 1 – forever imprisoned by Kristen somehow! Tom went there in the hopes of getting a ‘friend-ish’ discount.
If they were a movie, it would be called, She’s [He’s] Just Not That Over You (The Tom and Kristen forever dysfunction story). True to form, Kristen’s friend is eager to view the self-inflicted damage Ariana caused Tom to enact.
