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.
Kristen Taekmanis frustrated with Real Housewives Of New York! Although last season featured plenty of butting heads (and flung wine glasses), she believed the ladies really connected and had close friendships – this season with the addition of icy Bethenny Frankel and her demands, not so much!
While other Housewives have praised the show for returning to a more realistic format, Kristen doesn’t agree – and she also doesn’t necessarily agree that bringing Bethenny back into the mix was the right idea.
Before I continue with this recap I have two points to make:
1) Can we stop with the “My gays”? No one has “gays!” Just like no one has “heteros!” I loathe the so-called possession and ownership of “gays.” Gay people are just people, who are not ubiquitously defined by their sexuality no matter what Real Housewives want us to think. Plus, whatever “gays” Kyle has cobbled together, they clearly do not love her that much to let her dress that bad! Maybe it’s passive-aggressive payback for her leading them around LA referring to them as My Gay 1, My Gay Blonde, My Gay Ladysitter…
2) Why the hell would anyone fight for possession of “My Kim”? They do realize Kims come with Kingsley. And also, at the end of the day (HA!), it’s still Kim – who is praying to a trashcan and speaking gobbledy-goop, insisting it’s a language you just haven’t learned yet! It’s just Kim taking cancer medication as a fun-zany experiment while she accidentally smokes a dildo because she confused it with the e-cigarette she bought from that kiosk in the mall, on Tuesday, errrrr… I mean Wednesday, errrr… I mean during the 9, uhhhh 7, uuummmm 5 days she was in Promises Malibu the hospital working on her tan!
NeNe Leakes never hesitates to remind us that she is The ORIGINAL Krispy WiggedReal Housewife Of Atlanta and she has seen (and survived it all) but with this season being the most vitriolic and upsetting yet, rumor has it NeNe is on her way out of the series that made her famous.
“I’ve never felt I needed to do anything but be me,” NeNe brags. “And I simply remained me throughout every season. I’ve outlived people – and I’ve even outlived executive producers! Shade, honey – catch it!”
