The couple has been married for 11 years when this February, Josh reportedly suffered a cocaine relapse and then abruptly filed for divorce from Katie! According to well-placed reports Josh told several people his relapse was spurned by a fight he had with his wife. Still, Katie says the divorce filing “came out of nowhere” and she has no idea what prompted it!
Also, let’s get one thing clear – Bethenny didn’t want to host brunch to show off her Hamptons home (and really how could she being homeless and all) she wanted to show off her Skinnygirl collection.
It all begins at Luann de Lesseps‘ cozy Hamptons abode, the girls are clustered around the living room, drinking coffee and gossiping as real girlfriends do, also leisurely braiding Carole Cradziwill‘s toe hair (EWWW – isn’t that what Cindy Barshop is for – don’t you get the Real Housewives Federation Association discount on all waxations from here until the end of time – if you can manage to find your way out to Quogue.).
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!
