Last night on Manzo’d With Children the Manzo spawn were in for a rude awakening – particularly Lauren! Caroline Manzo is concerned about Lauren facing the realities of Vito’s income bracket instead of Al and Caroline’s. She wants to prepare Lauren for real married life… by letting Lauren and Vito live at home forever? And Albie took one small step in defying mommy by giving his sexy ex-girlfriend Britt another chance despite Caroline and Lauren’s disapproval. Time for Caroline to cut not only the apron strings, but the Chanel purse strings as well!
It’s morning in Manzo-land which means Caroline comes downstairs to a trashed kitchen and three lethargic kids standing around demanding breakfast. Lauren has been using the island as a makeup studio and Al’s credit card for everything – she’s never paid for gas in her life (and doesn’t think she should have to). Caroline rampages about how the kids don’t clean up and act like immature brats expecting her to do everything for them. What does she expect after all her microMOMaging. Caroline is especially pissed because she’s supposed to be going on a tennis date with Al.
In an article titled #Unfiltered, Kim discusses how motherhood made her recognize her career needed to slow down and prioritize. She also describes the challenges she faced getting pregnant a second time around. Kim was diagnosed with “placenta accreta.” A couple “little operations” to repair the condition caused a hole in her uterus, which Kim believes that is what made getting pregnant a second time so difficult.
“It was a long road,” Kim describes. “I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating. I was trying everything: I did acupuncture and got a nutritionist to eat healthier, thinking that was an issue.”
So much drama to discuss from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion; or at least what can be deciphered through the 7-layers of screaming. Housewives reunions are not unlike 7-layer taco dip – and one really has to slough through layers of green onions and refried beans to get to the good stuff.
Unfortunately a lot of chips get lost in the rubble. Reunions are minefields of undiscovered gold which are always cloaked in secrecy with expressions like, “Let’s talk about what we saw when we barged into your room!? [with a wannabe pirate circa 2013]” WHAT?! TELL US. Or, “I’ve covered for you plenty!” Meaning?!? All these inferences, insinuations, and teasers of people’s ghostwriters being exposed or countesses who lunge at princesses (or at least the previews showed Luann de Lesseps standing up and yelling – is that what Carole Radziwill meant when she said a ‘lunge’?).
Part two of the reunion delved into everything from Dorinda Medley‘s relationship and drinking, to Ramona Singer going through The Change – you know her new beginning, and of course all the nonsense with Carole Radziwill regarding Adam. Giving her opinion while she’s not being shouted down by a Housewives Chorus of Harridans (of which she is sometimes the leading soprano), Luann dishes on the drama via her Bravo blog.
Despite lurid details of Josh’s activity on the cheater website – including contacting numerous women – Kristen has accepted his apologies and promises that he’s never actually been unfaithful. “Kristen believes him,” insists a source close to the reality star. “They’re shrugging it off.”
Brandi’s attorney has filed a motion, submitting a series of questions that Joanna is reportedly bound to answer under oath. Most notably they want to know if Joanna can prove her vagina is odorless. Uhhhh…. THIS is her defense?
Kim Zolciak‘s face has undergone some dramatic changes as of late. Kim insists she’s just an avid fan of skincare and facials and now you can have skin as amazing as hers! The Don’t Be Tardy star recently traveled to LA just to get a special facial and now Kim announces that she’s starting her own skincare line!
Kim shared a photo of herself post-facial, which she purported to be make-up free (NOT) and revealed it’s the precursor to her very own skincare line! Gee – now you can look just. like. Kim!!!
Bethenny Frankel has made no secret that her love life is heating up. While she’s played coy about who the lucky gentleman callers are, she stated she’s not interested in dating fame-seekers or men with Facebook profiles. What about men with their own TV shows?
According to reports Bethenny is getting hot and heavy with CNBC anchor Marcus Lemonis, host of The Profit. Bethenny and Marcus reportedly connected and have a lot in common through their shared interests in business. The Real Housewives Of New York star has been motivated to date a man who is financially stable and has his own career, so from that perspective Marcus seems perfect.
