Last night Chris Manzo went for round two on the Millionaire Matchmaker. While some things have changed, like he’s no longer on Real Housewives Of New Jersey… OK, that’s the only thing that has changed (including that Patti Stanger still wears rompers and short-suits every freaking day!) because Chris is still a mama’s boy who needs mama’s approval before buying a pants that don’t belong on a 50-year-old.
True to form Caroline Manzo accompanies Chris to check in with Patti and go over what he’s looking for in a woman. He found her – her name is Caroline. Patti eventually sends Caroline out of the room because there is a difference between smothering and mothering, but the sad part is Chris is looking for someone, not only that his entire family also wants to date, but whom reminds him of Caroline, because he idolizes his parents’ marriage. Mmmmkay, moving on.
Patti describes Chris as desperately clinging onto the mama’s boyness and is afraid to move-on (or out!). She worries that he comes across as boring and needs to be micromanaged. Caroline worries that with Lauren getting married (and hating every girl Chris and Albie look at) and Albie finally in a relationship, Chris will end up living at home forever. Not that it’s a problem … I mean who makes better meatballs than mama?!
You know, divorce-schemorce – all it takes is a little reality TV contract to rekindle the love of Leah Calvert and almost-soon-to-be-ex-husband-no-2-Jeremy Calvert. Speaking of reality TV contracts, Farrah Abraham is also racking them up!
Basketball Wives LAis finally returning for season 4 after a long hiatus, but the Miami version of the show has been canceled leaving us only with LA, which is currently filming and fraught with plenty of drama – all of it reportedly centered around Draya Michele! Oh, and Shaunie, O’Neal is back.
The show has cycled through a lot of cast members since it first aired – and after adding Sundy Carter and Brittish Williams last season, producers fired them this season! Last season ended on a dreadful note when Draya flat-out refused to film the reunion with those two ladies. A source tells us the drama is even more insane behind the scenes!
Queens – get ready to START. YOUR. ENGINES!!!! because RuPaul’s Drag Race is back! I’ll fully confess to RuPaul‘s zany, funtasitcal, and delightful reality show being one of my favorite things on television, and blessedly the 7th season will premiere next month!
Season 7 will bring some changes to the beloved format. Comedian Ross Mathews and Carson Cressley will join Ru and Michelle Visage on the judges panel, replacing long-time member Santino Rice.
Kristen Doute was fired from SUR and although she’s happy to be moving on, she admits she has some major regrets about this season of Vanderpump Rules which she refers to as “the worst!”
After involving herself in Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix‘s relationship to the point of unhealthy obsession and total stalking, Kristen insists she wasn’t as crazy as she appeared. Stating that she was still in love with Tom during filming, she describes,”At the time… I didn’t want to be with Tom – although it’s edited that way based on the things said – but at the time, we had only been broken for six months. For me that just wasn’t enough time, and he just moved on more quickly.”
Our condolences go out to Vicki Gunvalson who just announced that her mother passed away last night.
Vicki’s charming (and blunt) mama was often seen on Real Housewives Of Orange County giving her daughter some major side-eye and dispensing advice in a fabulous and fun way. She lived in Illinois, where Vicki was from, and they were very close.
Vicki had recently returned from an insurance conference with her sister when she learned the news. Prior to that she had spent time in Puerto Vallarta with her brother. It’s unknown if Vicki’s mother was suffering from an illness or the passing was sudden.
Actually the Vanderpump Rules star admits she was ready to move on and although Lisa has never particularly liked her, Kritter will concede that Lisa has changed her life for the better and that her behavior was pretty inexcusable. Sort of.
“I do think that Lisa has a little bit of a vendetta against me. She doesn’t like me. We don’t get along. Our personalities just clash,” Kristen declares. “I think Lisa took some joy in doing it. I don’t think she would have had it any other way.”
Geraldo Rivera was stuck smack-dab in the middle of Kenya Moore and Vivica A. Fox‘s showdown and had a front row seat to the eponymous Celebrity Apprentice “Phonegate.” As a result, Geraldo declares Kenya “guilty!”
As usual, Geraldo has a lot to say, and it’s far more fun to read it in Geraldo’s voice. Am I the only one who naturally does that? Geraldo emphatically believes Kenya is the culprit behind thieving Vivica’s phone and even charges that Kenya should take a lie detector test to exonerate herself!
“There are ambitious divas in the news business, but in my experience we don’t steal each other’s microphones to prevent our rivals from broadcasting. Something like that happened last night on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’,” Mr. Mustache begins.
