What a weird Real Housewives Of Orange Countyreunion; filled with a whole lot of nothing with a few juicy bits stuffed in between, hanging out here and there, kind of like the weird smooches of flesh hanging over the cut-outs of Tamra Judge‘s very complicated dress. Seriously – Forever XXII is for 21 year olds!
Overall this has been a very weird season of Real Housewives Of Orange County. It’s almost Old Testament in its Biblical ruthlessness of judgement and excoriating righting of wrongs. It’s an eye-for-an-eye, or in this case a Jesus Barbie for a Jesus Jugs.
Let’s just break down the important doo-dads before we get to Briana Culberson. Who Brooks is also threatening to sue!
It’s almost time for Althea Heart and Benzino to welcome “Baby Zino” to the world. And they’re preparing double!
First time mom Althea is due with a baby boy in the next few weeks and is getting everything squared away in advance – including clearing up any relationship drama with Benzino. Lately the once-tumultuous couple appears happy and focusing on parenthood. But, of course, they’re not completely abandoning reality TV!
David and Yolanda are embracing a new chapter with a new place to call home. Is Yolanda taking the fridge with her? Last year the Fosters decided to sell their palace by the sea, so prominently featured on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, because Yolanda’s health issues made living in the massive house challenging.
“LuAnn, Sonja and Ramona have banded together [in holding out for more],” claims an insider. “They have not come to terms. The negotiations are always down to the last minute, but now the show’s started filming.”
Last night on Manzo’d With Children times were a’changin’ as Vito Scalia and Lauren Manzo told their parents it was time for them to claim some independence. Naturally that was just token gesture, and absolutely nothing will change.
The Manzo-Scalia bunch is still in Italy. For their final night in the paradise of Caroline Manzo‘s 1/16th dreams they are amid the splendors of a villa that is both a working farm and a restaurant. Alas it will be a nightmare for Vito Sr. and Denise when their blessed miracle Vicotta tells them the worst news they could imagine: he doesn’t want children he’s planning to open his own deli in Manhattan.
Quirkiest Lady in the Peerage Julie Montagu is dishing on why it’s no big deal to share bubbly – tub bubbles, that is – with friends. Similarly she doesn’t find it that odd that Marissa Hermer stalked Caroline Fleming to the ladies room to confront Cougar-gate is a big deal.
This week on Ladies of London, Julie hosted a shooting party to practice her Lady skills. Although Julie, of the headstands in ballgowns and JUB power balls, is the last person to consider herself a conventional Lady! Julie says, “yoga has taught me so much about being authentic to who you are and so some might think I’m being very risky by ‘bending the rules…'” Bending the rules, which presumably includes bending the friendship barriers? When in … delusional crazy land do as delusional crazies do!
