NeNe Leakes is used to facing tough audiences – first on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and now on Broadway in Cinderella, which debuted last night! Admitting that dealing with the negativity of Housewives has well-prepared her for criticism from critics and fans, NeNe also shares that her self-confidence has helped her shine through the haters!
“Working on ‘Housewives’ can be very negative at times. I think that’s the way (the producers) position the show. I’m the original — I’m the center of the show. Every season they want someone to come for me,” NeNe explains. “It’s tough. Broadway is more about the work and the art. It’s being creative. And every one wants to go out there and deliver and put on a good show. It’s very positive.”
Brandi Glanville apologized to Adrienne Maloof for surrogate-gate, because she doesn’t want it to be “awkward” when they run into each other. Uh-huh. We all know Brandi’s ulterior motive is that she needs to get to Adrienne before Lisa Vanderpump gets to her! This apology, where Brandi subtly attempted to drop hints to Adrienne that she was working on Lisa’s behalf, was another attempt of Brandi’s to join the chess team. Listen honey – stick to checkers.
Somewhere in the murky wilds between last season of RHOBH and this one, Brandi and Kim Richards became friends. Necessity is the mother of invention so the two people no one else wants to be friends with get stuck with each other. At least there were wigs!
Lipsa promises that she’ll deal with the crazy by trying to remain true to what’s important – herself! “I am going to be very authentic, be myself and stay grounded. Don’t react to anything, but be the better person and be supportive and empower the women,” she describes.
Kristen Doute is unable to let go of her relationship to Tom Sandoval, no matter how many times he blocks her on twitter! Kristen says at the root of her frustration is that Tom 1 has changed and she doesn’t like the fakery that she sees.
“It’s fair for me to say that he isn’t the same guy I knew before. The way he acts and his relationship with Ariana seem very contrived,” the Vanderpumop Rules star argues. “For someone who says I’m not worth a thought, she certainly spends a lot of time talking about me.” Uhhhh… seriously, Kristen?!
LeAnn Rimes certainly has an over-abundance of delusion and crazy. It seems her husband Eddie Cibrian likes ’em that way! But now LeAnn is sharing all about her tumultuous love with Eddie, how one recovers from breaking up a marriage but still maintaining her love, having babies!
The LeAnn & Eddie star describes her life as “one big country music song” amid cheating, crazy ex-wives, tabloid drama, and twitter dramas. Through all the chaos and negativity, LeAnn is grateful for her life and especially her marriage to Eddie – even if they are constantly scrutinized by the public which they made a reality show about and stalked by the paparazzi they hire to try and make them relevant.
“My life has been one big country song,” LeAnn describes. “I’ve gone through every emotion, especially in the situation with Eddie – I’ve felt pain and suffering and sadness and the most incredible love, all at the same time. I was meant to be with Eddie. … Divorce is not an option for us.”
Claudia Jordan burst onto Real Housewives Of Atlanta this week and she isn’t holding back! I have a feeling Claudia will be fun, until you piss her off and then watch it! She is all about the hustle and seems intent on making a name for herself as more than Kenya Moore‘s bestie!
Reacting to her inaugural episode, Claudia describes her friendship with Kenya and throws some shade on NeNe Leakes for calling her thirsty. Interestingly, Claudia doesn’t comment on Porsha Stewart and Cynthia Bailey‘s fight! She works with Porsha and is good friends with Cynthia, so I am curious about her perspective!
Last night on Vanderpump Rules it was the the Grownups VS. Real Grownups. The latter, a cult led by Stassi Schroeder. Immediately upon entering your fashion IQ drops at least 20 points. On the other hand, the Grownups is led by Scheana Marie Almost Famous and you basically need to be brain-dead (or Jax Taylor) to gain entry at all. But they are friendship tattoos!
Straddling the middle is Tom Schwartz. He so badly wants to be a Grownup, but Katie Maloney has him trapped in an invisible net – no one believes him when he reports himself as missing and kidnapped to the police.
Here’s what Grownups do: they have panic attacks at their bartending job and flee the scene, sobbing. Here’s what Real Grownups do: they sit in a corner hate-watching a group of people and passive-aggressively snarking on them behind-their-backs, but never actually say anything to their faces. You know, kind of what I do while I watch this show! The grownup is real, the grownup struggle is realer.
While some people are hanging out on twitter hate-tweeting, Lisa Vanderpump is hanging out at one of her three restaurants with A-listers! Jennifer Laurence swung by PUMP this weekend where she had drinks and dinner with friends and then re-enacted Vanderpump Rules to awesomeness!
Jennifer, a longtime Real Housewives fan, strolled into the restaurant and was seated at a regular table. When Lisa, who was dining there for her birthday, spotted J.Law she immediately moved Jennifer to her personal table at the center of the garden.
Jennifer and pals drank Pumptinis and LVP Sangria all night and then posted a hilarious instagram spoof of the Vanderpump Rules cast. Let’s hope the newly single Jennifer took one for the team and hit on Peter Madrigal!
