amy johnson and kelley johnson below deck season 2 reunion

It was rough waters for rookie reality TV members and siblings Amy Johnson and Kelley Johnson, who relied on each other to survive a tumulus season of Below Deck – which included gossiping Kat, heartbreaker Jennice, and crazy crazy charter guests! 

Amy and Kelley reflect on their first season and how they processed working in such stressful circumstances. It turns out having a blood is thicker than water ally definitely worked to their advantages. Neither shares whether or not they’d come back for another season, however. If they’re invited, that is. Rumor has it Bravo plans to shake up the crew every season to prevent the drama from going stale, but keeping a couple key players like Captain Lee and Chef Ben Robinson

Amy admits she had reservations about joining the crew of The Honor. “For me, [the cast] already had this established relationship so they were really in tune — especially with Captain Lee. When your leader already feels the vibe with those three, it was kind of like odd man out and [I had] to prove that I can earn his respect.”

kim kardashian wants respect at the recode social media conference

Kim Kardashian is trying to make a name for herself outside of vapid sex tape star, dramatic divorcee, and reality TV harlot. The name she is trying to make for herself is Mrs. West: fashion savvy, business maven, who is a force to be reckoned with! And she wants people to respect her work. 

Kim is tired of not being taken seriously and blames Keeping Up With The Kardashians for putting a negative connotation on all she has accomplished

“I pride myself with my work ethic, and I work really hard,” Kim says. “I think when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a ‘reality show,’ they take that as a negative. We’re in our tenth season. We have more episodes than ‘I Love Lucy.’ We have so many milestones that people don’t think about.” Milestones… um… divorces, butt injections, child slave labor, and selling out your most intimate personal moments for attention. Got it! 

Kim says she is proud of the “well-shot, well-lit home movies” which is what she considers KUWTK and cites the ability for her family to “share” and treasure these moments on film for the rest of their lives.

June Shannon appears on Extra.

One of the most horrifying reality TV stories we’ve ever had to report is the shocking case of Mama June rekindling her romance with Mark McDaniel, the man who spent 10 years in prison for molesting her then 8-year-old daughter Anna (“Chickadee”) Cardwell. This week Anna revealed that as an elementary school student when she initially told June about Mark abusing her, June did not believe her, but luckily a school teacher did and Mark spent 10 years in prison for child molestation.

Upon his release June has seemingly reignited their flame, dumping Sugar Bear, resulting in TLC pulling the plug on the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo empire! June certainly is giving up a lot for tainted love – including the possibility of losing custody of her three minor children: Chubs (17), Pumpkin (14), and Honey herself, Alana. June has introduced Alana, 9, to Mark and the two were photographed together. 

Now details from the police report and trial of Mark McDaniel have emerged revealing the absolutely horrific abuses he enacted against Anna, who was SO brave for coming forward and telling the adults in her life what she was going through. Anna initially told an elementary school teacher, who shocked by the graphic and very specific details of Anna’s story, immediately alerted authorities.

dina manzi appears on wwhl tan sweater

It’s no secret that Dina Manzo regrets her decision to return to Real Housewives Of New Jersey. I mean doh – RHONJ and Zen like don’t match! Defending her friend Teresa Giudice (and defending herself against twitterholic family members and their co-conspirators), Dina said Kathy Wakile is just not that sweet on the WWHL Aftershow! 

Discussing DICKtionaryGate between Kathy and Teresa, Dina admits she initially thought Teresa was being ridiculous and should just accept Kathy’s apology. But now that Dina knows Kathy a little better… and has seen how Kathy is behaving with Jacqueline Laurita (i.e. using each other for camera time and filming reactions Teresa’s sentencing), Dina has changed her mind. Now she seems to imply that Kathy is manipulative and scheming just like everyone else on RHONJ

josh altman and matt altman negotiate a fast sale

If there’s one thing Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles agents like, it’s a quick, clean sale! However sometimes they have to really put their hardened negotiation skills to the test. On last week’s episode Josh Altman was able to get a deal closed in less than 30 minutes, while newbies David Parnes and James Harris had to pull a lot more tricks out of their sleeves to appease a difficult but important developer! 

“Being in the real estate business for over a decade now, we have had deals that happen as quick as what you just saw and others that take years…yes, no joke, years,” Josh says. “You never know where you next deal is going to come from and how it will play out.”

real housewives of atlanta film a secret trip for phaedra parks birthday

There is a great mystery surrounding Real Housewives Of Atlanta – who are somewhere lost in the world – as they traveled on a jet plane for over 20 hours to get to a mysterious tropical location! Is it Bali? Thailand? South Korea?!

The entire cast – sans NeNe Leakes (did she quit mid-season?!), but plus Porsha Williams (was she hired full-time mid-season?!)- have gotten together to celebrate Phaedra Parks’ freedom from Apollo birthday in an epic cast trip to an undisclosed location! 

RHOA supposedly wrapped filming – Bravo already released the season 7 trailer – but with the Phaedra/Apollo drama escalating and Phaedra filing for divorce, cameras have resumed rolling. And they’re capturing a Phaedra Gets Her Groove Back vacation where all the ladies ostensibly come together to support the ‘New Phaedra’. Except for “Most Supportive” NeNe. Of course, NeNe has an excuse – she’s about to be on Broadway

No one knows for sure where they are, but the girls left on Phaedra’s birthday, it’s definitely somewhere tropical and it definitely includes Tropical Storm Krayonce. Yes, even Kenya Moore is there! Several different sources have theories about the current whereabouts of our Ladies Atlanta who could be anywhere from South Korea to Bali! Let’s discuss.

 Kenya Moore Purple Dress OK Magazine

Filed under things I simply do not believe given all the reports (and the trailer), Kenya Moore is promising viewers we’ll see a very different side of her on this season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta

“A lot of things will come to light that I feel will be redemptive for me,” Kenya says. “I’m just excited for people to not question the lies that were told by many people on the show, and now we’ll all get to see what the real truth is.” Hmmm… what lies do you think she is talking about? Do you think it has to do with Apollo Nida

Speaking of which, Kenya explains that it was never her intent to go after someone’s man. Then why was she texting or flirting with someone’s man? Just to be clear: I think Apollo is far more responsible for maintaining the integrity of his marriage than Kenya, but still – she knew the man was married!

rhony season 7 featuring luann, heather, carole, and kristen in the hamptons

Real Housewives Of New York season 7 started filming and it’s photos galore from the cast! Bravo is trying to capture some of that old magic. They brought Bethenny Frankel back to hawk more products, fired her friend Aviva Drescher, and they’ve started out filming by bringing the glam! 

LuAnn de Lesseps is also back as a full-time Housewife in a cast that also includes Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman, and of course, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. No word on whether or not another new lady will join the bunch as is rumored.

The girls have been filming in The Hamptons for LuAnn’s estate sale, in Arizona, and around NYC. And to really promote the season they’ve been sharing a ton of photos on Instagram and Twitter – which is unusual given that Bravo has always tried to keep things very under wraps in previous seasons. 

Interestingly, none of the ladies are posing with Bethenny (except LuAnn), despite all raving about her return. Glad they’re happy… Is Bravo trying to keep Bethenny’s storyline more of a secret to pull in viewers? Likely! Not surprising, however, is that Ramona and Sonja are at odds with the rest of the group. 

PS – does anyone else feel that Carole, Heather and Bethenny won’t get along? Bethenny does not like competition!
