Man – I’m disappointed in Bravo. They left out all the fun stuff from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to focus on Kim “RAMBLES OF MY SOBRIETY” Richards. Yes, we missed Eileen Davidson announcing she’s driving her Ford Flex to collect her Emmy, so we could instead hear KimKillah wax poetic about all the terrible things HARRY did while Lisa Rinna was sleeping, only to deny she ever said them because she doesn’t remember, only to admit she made the whole implication up! Anyway, Bravo – more Emmys and less Kimmies. (And how gorgeous did Eileen look in her Emmy gown).
So, what else happened. Oh – Yolanda Foster “downsized.” With Mauricio as her guide towards these uncharted territories of humble abodes, Yolanda house hunted. Yes – she realized having a 4,000 tree lemon grove was just a touch too much even for her perma-master cleanse state of being, so she looked at houses in the 8,000 – 4,500 square-foot range. But oh, they were just not for Yo!
Carole admits to Access Hollywood that she’s still dating Adam, the chef she met at Luann de Lesseps‘ Hamptons house on last week’s show! Carole insists she doesn’t generally date younger men but Adam is an exception, although one she’s really enjoying.
“Its nice to be with someone who hasn’t been through like 10 really bad relationships, or divorce, or like a crazy girl… there’s something kind of new and fresh,” Carole says of her relationship with Adam, whom she reveals is “almost 30.”
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?
