Last night was the premiere of Private Lives of Nashville Wives and so far I'm loving it! The ladies and the friendships seem genuine and fun, the husbands are adorable, and the interactions seem authentic. The houses are fabulous but not ridiculous and the relationships seem authentic.
It's CMA Festival week in Nashville which means the town is bumping with parties, events, music festivals. and entertainment.
Jenny Terrell is my favorite wife so far. She is married to JT, who runs a party-supply company that everyone in Nashville uses, and she herself is a national sales director for Living Social. They have a son named Hank and JT is basically a stay-at-home dad as his business runs itself. "I should write a book," he jokes about balancing business, family, and love. "You should," Jenny agrees and the wheels start spinning. Their house looks like a tree house, BTW.
They take Hank to the park and Jenny is wearing like a schoolgirl outfit with white tennis shoes and socks. Oooohhh… girl. No. I also don't think she owns a brush but maybe it's because she's too busy having fun to care. Isn't there a Living Social deal for hairbrushes or anti-frizz treatments or something?
I don't know what to think. Is this a 4-way gang up on Lisa Vanderpump? Or is this Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Fosterwere once on a Dream Team with Lisa and for some odd reason decided to split and take Lisa down by pulling others into the middle?
Meaning, that yes – Lisa was part of "tabloids-in-the-suitcase-gate" which is the new necklace-gate, which is the new-skipped-my-party-gate, which is the new stop-being-my-mama-gate which is the new ewww-get-my-husband's-mistress-out-my-plastic-face-gate, which is the new hair-flip-your-friends-talk-ish-about-you-gate, which is the new don't-talk-about-my-husband's-ALLEGED-cheating-gate. Basically we've come full circle and we're back to talking about Kyle Richardsand Mauricio's cheating, which NO ONE – I repeat NO ONE – cared about in the first place except Kyle who probably planted the stories to begin with!
Yolanda Foster does not like when people misbehave – especially at her own events!
On last week's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the ladies celebrated Gigi's going away party as she prepared to move to NYC for college. And they also celebrated a takedown of Lisa Vanderpump and some nonsense over a truly ugly necklace that instead of being thrown away was being tortured and preserved forever. Ugh.
In her Bravo blog, Yolanda discusses her frustrations with the ladies bringing drama to Gigi's party but is pleasantly surprised it didn't get too out of hand.
Being Farrah entails many things. It does not entail telling the truth, accepting responsibility for your actions, or acting like an adult – just an adult film star.
We check in with the former Teen Mom as if we haven't seen enough of her on Couples Therapy, and Farrah Abraham tells us she's raising Sophia alone – or not because she's actually living with her dad Michael and traveling all over for her big important career of not being in the adult entertainment industry or taking a break from reality TV.
While Farrah is off being Farrah, Michael is actually raising Sophia in the huge enormous house Farrah's not being a porn star career paid for, but she doesn't want to talk about all that. Like ick! Now that MTV is back, so is Farrah. Lucky Sophia!
Debra and Michael are now divorced. Debra moved 1000 miles away and was happy in isolation until MTV knocked on her door with cameras. "How did you find me?" she whispers. "Leave me alone…" Next time try the witness protection program, Debra! And try wearing a less flamboyant coat than that full-length leopard-print number.
Tonight TNT is unveiling an all-new series that already has me riveted. Private Lives of Nashville Wives will go behind the scenes with some of the most famous Mrs's in the country music business.
Following the ups and downs of former soap star Erika Page White, Jenny Terrell (married to a legendary Nashville party planner), Cassie Chapman, Sarah Davidson, and twin sisters BettyMalo and Ana Margarita Fernandez; the ladies school us in the very important rules of southern etiquette, family matters, and style in the ultra-exclusive Nashville world. However it's not all high-gloss parties, fabulous country-meets-fashion week outfits, and glamorous living.
Overnight it seems Kenya Moore and Marlo have become tighter than Marlo's wardrobe. Although I don't think anyone would describe them as friends – more like thick as thieves because they are up to some plotting!
Reeling in the aftermath of Kenya's charity event in which NeNe was honored but not honored (nor honorable) NeNe admits to Gregg (aka Tagalong) that she turned into NayNay, her super-ghetto alter-ego who likes to go all PLONK! and circumstance. As he listens to his wife's tale of woe, Gregg is sipping coffee from a toilet-shaped mug. I can't help but wonder… Is Gregg's toilet mug an indication of the status of his life? He's flushed his integrity and self-respect down the toilet for fame.
Former (or is it current?) entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks appears on the March cover of Upscale Magazine alongside two other ladies of reality TV: Tameka Raymond (Atlanta Exes) and LaTavia Robertson (R&B Divas Atlanta).
In a quote about her experiences appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra explains that though the show may have ahem… scripted moments, the stars certainly aren't treated like actors!
“We’re not members of SAG so it’s not like we’re getting benefits from replays," Phaedra says of one of the glaring pitfalls of being on reality TV. "We’re talents that aren’t being considered as actors, so they're getting talent for a nominal fee. They’ve found a way to make money and cut the cost on studios and productions so they’re making the largest profit with the least amount of residual.”
"I think that Carole’s book is more of a beach read, whereas I think my book can really touch everybody," Aviva shades. "It’s not just for Housewives viewers. I think it can touch everybody because it shows by various examples how you can get through life’s trials and tribulations. Everyone’s touched by anxiety, health issues, addiction, divorce, and marriage – whether it’s your own relationships, your parents’, or whoever else’s – everyone gets touched by these things and I touch on all of them."
