Glee creator Ryan Murphy seemingly loves him some NeNe (just like Andy Cohen does!) and he has cast her in a recurring role for his newest sitcom, The New Normal. A trailer was just released for the NBC show, which is likely to be a hit.
With all of NeNe’s new-found success away from the venue of reality TV, I have to wonder if her days as a reality star are numbered. Rumor has it NeNe has been making a lot of demands in order to remain on the show – including stipulating who gets the job as a new housewife.
Further cementing that she may be soon abandoning Housewives for the big leagues, NeNe recently attended the extremely shi-shi American Ballet Theater Spring Gala at The Metropolitan Opera House. Hopefully she didn’t get into any altercations. A photo of NeNe at the gala is above!

WILL YOU BE WATCHING THE NEW NORMAL? ARE NENE’S DAYS ON HOUSEWIVES NUMBERED?

Slave Smiley has repeatedly denied being employed by his girlfriendGretchen Rossi- he has also never really revealed where exactly he is employed. Back in his heyday when he was an American Express Black Card holder and kind of a big deal in the OC, Slade was a business man of sorts. Well when the economy tanked so too did his career prospects which began his rather unlucrative venture of latching onto the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County!
As of recently, Slave has seemingly been acting as Gretchen’s manager of sorts and now he – or rather Gretchen – is campaigning for a stint on Celebrity Apprentice!
Yesterday some delusional admiring fans mentioned that Gretchen should be CA’s next Housewives member, Gretchen suggested Slave would be better suited for the gig (she, herself, is angling for a spot on Dancing With The Stars) and henceforth a Twitter campaign going by the name #Smiley4Apprentice popped up. Good lawd… help me.
There don’t seem to be too many takers so far, but never underestimate the power of a hashtag!
On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, the Skinnygirl team headed to Aspen for the launch of Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy continued to wrestle over whether or not Jason should work for Skinnygirl and Bethenny got a reminder of what it was like to be single and twenty-two again.
Things begin, oh I don’t even know where they began? What were they even doing? Oh that’s right… hanging out on the street corner! Which seems as close to Bethenny‘s natural habitat as a cougar in the city can get! Bethenny is buying art for the new apartment and congratulating herself on being such a renegade, so cutting edge. She spends thousands – ON STREET ART! No one rich in the history of the world has ever done that. Well, at least according to Bethenny’s revisionist history.
Bethenny buys a American Flag painting. I’m not sure why. It was hideous and looked like it was a papier-mâché accident. I kept waiting for her to try and commission one with the Skinnygirl logo on it. Which actually would’ve been neat. She could hang it in the office.
The ladies of Basketball Wives have been working overtime to secure their infamy. And despite a lawsuit, celebrity complaints, sponsor boycott, fan uprising, a former castmember speaking out, and a very popular online petition – the show has been renewed for a fifth season! Shocked? Yeah, me too! No word on whether or not Jennifer Williams will be included in the cast!
All hope is not lost as the producers seem to be listening to fans and promising less chaos and violence in the upcoming season. Shaunie O’Neal faced criticism about the direction the show has been going in at this season’s reunion, which was taped this week. Shaunie swears she’s been campaigning for a less violent show all along and now the network is finally listening to her. Yeah, Right!
Ahhh… Melissa Gorga… back in the press defending yourself. Last year it was stripper allegations, this year it’s financial woes! The Real Housewife of New Jersey star fell under scrutiny when she and husband Joe Gorga listed both their Montville, New Jersey mansion and their shore house for sale last week. Melissa claims the couple is just ready for a change and it has absolutely nothing at all to do with speculation that they can’t pay the billz!
“The rumors that Joe and I can’t afford our mortgage payments and bills are 100 percent false,” Melissa told The Huffington Post. “Since when does selling your house mean you are broke?” Well, I can think of a time or two that it has, I’m not saying this is one of them. I’m just saying it happens!
Melissa, herself, told Reality Tea that she and Joe have always been financially stable and there is absolutely no validity to the rumors, citing proof that their mortgages have always been sound. Melissa’s publicist provided documentation to Reality Tea which directly proves Melissa’s statements about their home ownership.
Alexis Bellino is everybody’s favorite ditzy, delusional, hypocritical Jesus Barbie and together with her husband Jim Bellino they have provided countless hours of amusement to us fans. Well, unfortunately, that may soon come to an end!
LA Late News is reporting that Jim and Alexis may be leaving Real Housewives of Orange County! Which would break my heart, I swear it! Jim has been repeatedly negative about the show: refusing to film, then refusing to appear with the other women on the show, then agreeing to film in diminished capacity while doing a weekly blog speaking out against the editing, the storylines, and the other Housewives.
*Sigh* When I started watching the Real Housewives of Orange County way back when I was intrigued by the wealthy and fantastical lifestyles of women very different from me. As Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives of New Jersey came onto the Housewives scenes, they were my two favorites of the franchise. They were light-hearted, silly, and kooky – and I loved the genuine friendships along with the realistic seeming issues between friends.
As with Atlanta, no one on this show likes each other anymore. It’s painful and obvious that even the supposed friendship scenes are fabricated and the ladies are dialing it in. Additionally, I am very tired of the husbands dominating the storyline. This is a show about Housewives – I don’t care about your hubby. If they are that interested in being housewives, get a sex change!
Rosie Pope, star of Bravo’s surprisingly dishy hit Pregnant In Heels welcomed her daughter into the world yesterday on Mother’s Day! Vivienne Madison Pope was born May 13 at 12:40 p.m. Rosie and her husband Daron also have two sons, J.R., 3 and Wellington, 15 months; this is the first girl for the family.
Rosie Live-Tweeted throughout her delivery, which is way more than I could’ve accomplished during birth, but I guess she is an expert! “Our healthy and beautiful baby girl weighs 7 pounds, 9 ounces,” Rosie shared with Life & Style. “Daron and I are doing well and so in love with her, as are her older brothers and our extended family.”
Congratulations to Rosie and her family on their new addition!
The new season of Pregnant In Heels premieres May 15th at 10/9c on Bravo. A preview is below! I have to admit, I’m excited for the new season!
