I, of course, watched – tornados transporting me to Oz couldn't keep me away – and here's my thoughts on what happened. First of all I was sort of surprised Andy let Jill go so far with some of her allegations. It wasn't live, it was pre-recorded so the network definitely let her air ALL her grievances and expose what I thought was some pretty scandalous things about how filming works and behind the scenes dealings.
Secondly, Jill was either nervous or I don't know what but she rambled and ranted tangentially for the entire segment. Andy barely got a word in and he was checked out, although composed (and bemused), in a way I've never seen him act before. Jill of course basically complained that she was fired, whined it wasn't fair, and insisted viewers want her back and didn't connect with the new women because we don't know them. She actually said viewers were boycotting her firing – and Alex McCord's.
Angela also provided an interview to Vibe in which she claimed Phaedra was a criminal mastermind behind an auto theft ring. Angela also alleges that her involvement with Phaedra's criminal organization led to not only her incarceration but Apollo's!
Phaedra's mother, Pastor Regina Bell also filed a defamation suit against Vibe for $6M and TMZ reported Regina settled for a pathetic $10! Um… yeah to the right – that won't even buy a lady lunch!
Tonight is the second half of the Real Housewives of New Yorkreunion. It's also the end of the fifth season. And it wouldn't be Housewives without drama that far outlasts a season! Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher have been having issues since the controversial St. Barths smack-down.
Still not on good terms, Sonja speaks to The Examiner and admits she feels bad for Aviva – given all her issues. Oh dear…
"She definitely has deep anger issues. When I’m not around her, I feel bad for her but when you’re with her and she’s saying this stuff to you, it’s so hurtful."
"As time goes by, my initial personal feeling is easing and I now feel more pain for Aviva. She definitely has some very deep seated anger that she projects on other people. It’s more than anger it’s fear. I feel she’s fearful & very hard on herself, she’s hard on others. I wish she could figure out a way to love herself more & understand that people need her to love her & not be so paranoid. I think one of the reasons I trust people so much is that I love myself, so I love others, maybe a little too much. So it’s very painful when it backfires."
Shahs of Sunset season 2 has officially been announced and Bravo has released the cast. Sammy Younai is out andLilly Ghalichi is in! Promising plenty of drama and lots of challenges for its Persian princes and princesses, the cast will deal with struggles both between themselves and in their personal lives.
This season Reza Farahan will face a full-on "gaylife crisis" while MJ Javid decides to finally pursue a committed relationship. Mike Shouhed finds the girl of his dream, but there's one snafu – she's not Jewish! Asa Soltan Rahmati's dream of becoming a Persian pop princess is threatened by a financial crisis.
GG Gharachedaghi decides it's finally time for her earn a living so she starts a business with her sister. Unfortunately her anger management issues cause major problems. And new girl Lilly seems to have it all on the surface – but balancing her business and her personal life are proving to be more difficult than it looks!
No word on whether last seasons dramaful extra Anita Gohari will be returning, but I hope so. I'm surprised she wasn't promoted to a full-season cast member. I'm also surprised they haven't brought on an extra guy to replace Sammy!
Below are the official cast photos – and the trailer for season 2!
Shahs of Sunset premieres Dec 2 at 10/9c on Bravo!

TELL US – WILL YOU BE WATCHING? WILL LILLY MAKE A GOOD ADDITION TO THE CAST?
So we've made it. It's the end of Real Liars Housewives of New Jersey. I don't know about you, but I am so relieved to be done with this show. I don't know where I stand on things other than to say that I can see everyone's points as valid, but I'm tired of hearing about them.
So let's get started. We begin with Juicy Giudice still under interrogation. He's familiar with it by now, I suppose, given all his legal infractions. Caroline Manzo's comments about how Teresa Giudice will leave her husband and write a book about it if he goes to prison are revisited.
Caroline seems to be saying without saying it that editing minced her comment or took it out of context. Or perhaps she just doesn't want to admit that she said and meant it. There's so much backpedaling with these people I never know what to think. Anyway, Caroline dismisses it as a "hypothetical" and Juicy snaps that Caroline is a "know it all" She is – a very unwarranted 'know it all.'
Caroline says since Teresa is discussing her marriage with magazines, it's fair game. Andy Cohen asks about Joe admitting in Napa they got paid by the magazines, but all of the sudden it's denies, denies, denies. 'Huh? I said that? I was drunk? Whaddai say?' Joe and Teresa are masters of obfuscation. That should be their next book!
Tonight is the FINAL, final episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. After a season of constant turmoil I need a vacation, some PTS therapy, and a long hiatus from family drama not my own.
Tonight's episode will explore the final meltdown of a family who has been destroyed by reality TV. Tonight the husbands take the stage and the Joews will battle to expose each other as the sleaziest, grossest, and worst husband! Lord only knows how that will turn out but my money is on Juicy Giudice getting dirty.
Last night on Real Housewives of Miami, a very careful distinction was made. And that distinction was the differences between a regular, old, run of the mill famewhore, and an uber, professional celeb-stalking, paparazzi courting, namedropping famewhore. And guess who announced themselves a member of the latter category?Karent Sierra, dentist to the stars by day, photobombing pseudo-celeb by night!
Only Bravo could find these people and give them a platform for which to promote their ridiculous endeavors? As Adriana de Moura pointed out – "Doesn't she have teeth to drill?"
But before all that drama, Romain Zago is putting his foot down with Marta Krupa. It would appear that Marta, who has no reliable job to speak of, is seeming like a freeloader to Romain, who wonders just why she doesn't help out around the house? Romain spells it out – you're taking advantage of Joanna Krupa.
Marta's all like, 'Yeah, but I like mopped the floor that one time! I help! I put a new toilet paper roll on the holder. And ummm… I, like, put the clothes away that I borrow from Joanna!' Romain chastises her for not even grocery shopping – which makes sense considering she doesn't have a job so how exactly would she buy food? Anyway, Marta, who's a serious actress, announces she's moving in with Fembot Fakenstein. Romain is like don't let the door hit you – and take out the trash on your way out!
Filming for the new season will begin on Monday with the premiere airing March 13th. Surprisingly missing from the cast – Housewives! NeNe Leakes previously revealed that she had no interest in returning and despite several cast members from her season joining the new season, Teresa Giudice was not on the list (although she still works with the Trump family to raise money for Nephcure).
Most surprisingly is that Omarosa Manigault is returning to reality TV – and I'm already afraid.
