It’s been more than a year since Kim got sober and her regular volunteering at Skydog Ranch, a non-profit devoted to horse sanctuary, has helped her recovery “a lot.” Kim’s work there a has been a “major part” of maintaining her focus. “The horses make me feel so good. I feel like I’m a part of something so huge and I know I’m making a difference,” she describes. “The Sanctuary keeps me grounded and keeps me at peace and it’s healthy for me.”
Khloe Kardashian is crying all the way to the bank about any regrets she has about their lives being so public and readily available due to Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It’s a song of woe we’ve heard sung by many a reality star, but the Kardashians are an empire – literally – all their own, and probably the most pervasive and successful of the bunch.
Khloe admits, in hindsight, she has some serious regrets regarding how open they’ve been with some very personal situations (her divorce and situation with Lamar Odom is shockingly not one of those regrets!).
Meghan Edmonds tries hard, y’all, but when dealing with women who act like babies, she’s facing an impossible task. Especially because motherhood and babies are so boring and exhausting. In response to Kelly Dodd‘s accusation that she is a pot-stirring absentee mother, Meghan insists she’s been nothing but a great friend to Kelly and didn’t deserve having her character attacked.
After being the one who helped Kellymake amends with Shannon Beador, Meghan was shocked to find herself “the one under fire.” Now she recognizes that everyone getting along was “too good to be true.” Never rest on your Housewives laurels as they say!
Last night was the premiere of Below Deck season 5 and guess what?! I have thoughts. Oh so many thoughts. And I may still pine for the Season 1 cast. Oh Bravo, where did you, NOT Captain Lee Rosbach, find these people?!
Captain Lee is steering the gorgeous Valor out to St. Martin with a skeleton crew of ne’er do wells, or actually never-had-dones. He blames all the “Hollywood Types and Wall Street pricks” who now own yachts instead of merely chartering them, and therefore there are NO available good crew left and he was stuck with the leftovers. #DoNotBelieve. I blame Bravo casting. Either legit professionals don’t want to appear on a reality show, or Bravo intentionally cast unprepared boneheads for drama.
By now we’ve all seen Below Deck‘s Men Eater commercials starring Kate Chastain enough times to expect a season of some serious resting bitch face! So without further ado here is a brief lifesaving recap of last season’s drama – just because it’s good to be prepared on the high seas! Or maybe it doesn’t matter since this season the crew is almost completely new.
The most saddy-sad news of all is that Ben Robinson is not returning. I. Know. Oh boy do I know. So sad. He and his on-boat/off-boat girlfriend Emily Warburton-Adam are instead launching their own cooking show. Needless to say Emily, who started out so promising, and ended up so Anti-Kate, is not returning either!
This is frustrating because Kelly is in the right about Meghan’s behavior but, as always, Kelly’s delivery and her viciousness get the better of her!
The whole thing started off so promisingly – in a baby store. Amid queries about sleigh cribs or modern cages, Kelly joked with Meghan that perhaps she’s “a lesbo” after a drunken kiss with Shannon Beador. Kelly and Meghan guffaw like Kelly ‘s kiss with Shannon is so trendy and cool, instead of waving from the caboose on Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” train. More prescient is how quickly Kelly and Shannon moved from mortal enemies to K-I-S-S-ING. First comes hate, then comes love, then comes Meghan in the middle!
Can’t automobile Feng Shui prevent nose bleeds? Maybe Shannon needs to move a tissue to her rear view mirror, aka the driver’s awareness corner, where instead she has an air freshener? Anyway, Shannon shared a photo of herself in the hospital recovering from her health crisis. I wonder if Vicki Gunvalson brought Shannon casserolessweat pants in her time of immense need?
However, after surviving her first season and temporarily losing a close friendship with Brandi, Stephanie is trying to stay sane in the Bravo Universe.
“It’s really hard to be vulnerable on something that’s meaningful,” Stephanie says of her sit-down with Brandi. “Like the first few weeks of filming, I felt like I was gonna have a nervous breakdown because […] it was important and it was an emotional thing. I was so worried that I was gonna screw everything up by putting it out there with her because you know with cameras on you everything is so heightened, so it was scary.”
