Kim Richards is doing what any tried and true celebrity (or celebrity wannabe) is doing: turning her bad situation into a publicity grab! After being arrested for public intoxication and battery against a police officer at the swanky Beverly Hills Polo Lounge, the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star has opened up about the incident and her battle with alcoholism in a taped tell-all with Dr. Phil. Two people I utterly cannot stand in one TV segment – I haven’t been this lucky since his hard-nosed chat with Farrah Abraham!
In the sit-down, which will air next Tuesday, April 28th, Kim will take responsibility for her behavior, telling Dr. Phil, “I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink.” Why do I feel like these are just hollow words said in an attempt to redeem her in the eyes of viewers? #WeSeeYou
After declaring herself super sober all season, Kim Richards was arrested last week for (among other things) public intoxication! Now come the reports that Kim was actually drinking the entire time Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was filming and that Bravo is officially fed-up with giving Kim chances and are in talks to fire her!
Kim has caused a lot of issues since joining RHOBH – and there’s been several rumors that Kyle Richards has gone to bat for her and made deals with the network to keep Kim employed, despite her inability to show up for filming and her unstable behavior. But is Bravo officially done with My Sobriety being the only storyline (besides attack dogs) Kim contributes to the show – especially when My Sobriety isn’t even Kim’s reality?
Real Housewives Of Orange County will premiere on Bravo June 10th, but there’s already major drama about whether or not new cast member Katie Hamilton will even appear this season! And with word that her MLB husband Josh Hamilton filed for divorce 2 months ago, things are getting even trickier!
Katie, together with Meghan Edmonds, are the new ladies slated to join RHOC for season 10, both boasting an impressive MLB marriages. Unfortunately, Katie’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Josh, an Anaheim Angels outfielder who has a long history of substance abuse issues, suffered a relapse during filming, reportedly over marital problems and the intrusion of reality TV cameras. This prompted rumors that Katie had pulled out of the show to focus on family issues and avoid having the drama play-out for Bravo cameras.
What was officially the most disjointed, least sense-making season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta ever has finally come to an end. There were weird casting issues, a serious marriage upheaval, and pointless fights about female genitalia and how it is used (or misused), but there remained one constant: NeNe Leakes.
In her finale blog, NeNe discusses surviving RHOA no matter what co-stars and errant producers tried to throw at her and revels in her success on Broaaa-Way (the “D” is oddly silent when NeNe pronounces it, as if her tongue can’t reach around her giant veneers to reach the roof of her mouth required for the D sound. Clearly I am over-thinking this).
With things very up in the air concerning whether or not NeNe will return for season 8 (she announced on twitter she would “if certain cast members don’t”), she’s focusing on the future while reminding us of how vital she is to the life-force that is RHOA – and that the unstoppable force of NeNe is just that: unstoppable!
Brandi Glanville appeared on Access Hollywood Live where she opened-up about everything from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills drama and misbehavior, possibly getting married to boyfriend JR, Housewives plastic surgery, Lisa Rinna‘s craziness, the reunion, and her kids learning about how she acts on RHOBH.
Hilariously, hostess Kit Hoover actually asks Brandi if her dress was lingerie. She denies it, explaining it’s a vintage dress she bought while she was still married to Eddie Cibrian and she has worn it on the red carpet before.
That spirals right into Lipsa basing the look of her CSI ‘trashy mom’ character on Brandi’s look. Brandi is still offended. “Speaking about me as a mother is off limits. And coming from someone whose had the same hair do for 20 years – you might wanna hold your roll!” Brandi quips. “I was just making a point. Generally I would never attack anyone’s looks – attack my character, but don’t attack looks. It triggered me, because she doesn’t know me as a mother. I just… snapped.”
Season 7 of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has come to an end – now we just have to get through the reunion. Can we? Yes, we can… with vodka. As they say: Life Twirls On… and so does the drama!
NeNe Leakes is in NYC for her debut in Broadway’s Cinderella. She’s got Michael Jackson’s sequined underwear on her head as a hat. Is it better or worse than the wig she’s got on underneath? With rehearsals ending, NeNe walks on the Broadway stage for the first time and is spellbound.
NeNe tosses her sequined-granny panties in the air and spins – not twirls – because she made it after all – away from the little town of Athens, away from the stripper pole, away from Wigs-N-Cigs and Krayonce, and onto the Great White Way where it is ALL. About. NeNe. The fans, the name in lights, the billboards on Times Square – all about NeNe. Those other people standing on stage with her? Mere extras in the giant production of life that is NeNe Leakes: The Impressive Adventures of Success As Told By Success Herself: Blooperella! NeNe admits she’s nervous.
NeNe does recognize she can’t run off stage if things don’t go her way, right?
Kyle Richards has had a traumatic season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. From physical altercations, to major family dramas, to losing and gaining friendships. But hey, at least she finally got back into the good graces of viewers! KaChanelChing for popularity!
With part 3 of the reunion featuring a dramatic showdown between Kyle and Kim Richards over Kingsley biting Kyle’s daughter Alexia, Kyle has some information to clear-up. She also comments on Brandi Glanville‘s ridiculous accusations and Lisa Rinna‘s text message drama.
In her final blog, which Kyle admits she didn’t “want to write” (but she is contractually obligated to (and isn’t going to run-out and get smashed at a posh hotel then assault police officers instead of doing her job), she says things between herself and KimKillah have a long, long, LONG way to go before they’re resolved. If ever… but she is done taking the blame and keeping quiet!
