Every season NeNe Leakes threatens to quit Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but this time it seems NeNe actually is ready to toss her peach in the trash because its rotten to the core! Complaining of producers who want drama, networks being desperate to grab ratings, and co-stars who will do anything for a TV job, NeNe says she’s embarrassed by how she has behaved in situations and felt pressured to act up!
“I am at a point where I don’t know how much longer I can stay in this situation,” NeNe admitted. “In the beginning when it started, I was having fun. I would have to say now I am not having as much fun.”
NeNe says viewers rarely see the real her, because their lives are overshadowed by drama between the girls and co-stars willing to do anything for screen time.
Scheana Marie had a meltdown or two at her wedding and luckily for us it was all captured by cameras. The Vanderpump Rules star admits she may have overacted a bit, but is thrilled with her wedding because of all the love – besides Kristen Doute ruining everything and treating her reception like a boxing ring!
“I realized that there were several parts of the day and night that I looked like a super bridezilla bitch. I don’t like that I looked so completely rude and ungrateful, but it was my wedding, and every bride wants their wedding to go perfect,” Scheana describes. “At the end of the day, it didn’t matter, it was beautiful. I was there with my family, my amazing husband, all of my friends, and it ended up being a beautiful night.”
Mob Wives seemed destined to be a hit on concept alone – a fascinating glimpse into the lives of America’s ever-elusive mafia = ratings gold! But five seasons later Renee Graziano, whose sister created the show, and Karen Gravano, who rejoined this season, are discussing how the show has affected their lives, what it’s done for their relationships, and what they’ve learned from it all!
“I have gotten use to my personal life being aired. I only wish the whole truth was told,” admits Renee. “I think I’d be more respected and less hated or not looked at like a drama queen, but as a woman who has been dealt a hand and still finds a way to pull aces and jokers when in need. You know about a third of what I have experienced as a daughter, as a wife, as a woman, and as a victim, or as I prefer: survivor.”
Since TLC wants nothing to do with the Boo Boos, who no longer fit their funky family-friendly image, the Boo Boos are taking their redneck lovin’ lifestyle to more interested parties – they hope! Reports are circulating that Mama June and the crew – including Sugar Bear – are in LA meeting with producers this week to shop around a new “Beverly Hillbillies Themed” reality show to various networks!
First up Tuh-resssssssa and her husband Rino Aprea have been stung with a class action lawsuit by two former employees who allege the restaurant owners refused to pay employees for full shifts! Oh – and they had to pay to launder their own uniforms.
Teresa and Rino own Angelo’s of Mulberry St in NYC and a former bartender and a waiter have taken the RHONJ stars to court over a laundry bill and on an accusation that they intentionally “short changed” employees checks by paying them for 7 hour shifts when they routinely worked 10 hours. The suit, filed in US district court. cites that the Apreas “regularly scheduled or knowingly permitted” employees to work more than 40 hours but then refused to pay time-and-a-half for hours.
So last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills we all got to play amateur psychologist as we tried to figure out what the heck is wrong with Kim Richards. Leading the charge were our bright-eyed and intrepid newbies Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna, eager to make a change, eager to help where help is not wanted. As they are about to learn the Richards Sisters are content and complicit in their dysfunction!
Brandi Glanville is on a 21-day cleanse under the tutelage of Yolanda Foster. That means no alcohol, no sugar, but totally Xanax! A girl can’t give up allll her vices. Yolanda is apparently captaining the Beverly Hills chapter of the Save-A-Hoe Foundation and she thinks yoga is gonna teach an old bitch new tricks. Nice try, but dangling a hot yoga instructor in front of a gal’s face is no way to reshape a behavior – but it’s not like it says NO MEN on this cleanse. Like I said, a girl can’t give up allll her vices! Xanax & Dating?
For everyday Brandi doesn’t drink is Yolanda is gonna give her one almond chip? BTW: Brandi is only doing this cleanse to prove to the other girls she’s not an alcoholic.
Brandi Glanville restauranteur? Apparently she wants to be! With her new-found bestseller money, Brandi says she asked now former friend Lisa Vanderpump if she could be an investor in her restaurant PUMP, but was turned down! I guess the Vanderpump-Todds were worried that Brandi’s investment capital would quickly be nullified by her showing up at the bar and demanding the owners special!
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star said she’s considered getting into the restaurant business for a while, so with Lisa and KenTodd opening PUMP, it seemed like a convenient opportunity! “I’ve always wanted to have a restaurant,” Brandi shared. “I actually offered to be an investor in PUMP when she first opened PUMP, and she didn’t want me to be an investor.”
Lisa Vanderpump is no stranger to drama on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills but after being the recipient of all the mayhem last season, she is happy to return to her role as witty commentator on all things Housewives! Most of the times…
Admitting that last season was “horrible,” Lisa says it is difficult to understand main perpetrator Brandi Glanville‘s motives – and she definitely hasn’t forgotten the misdeeds (no matter what Kyle Richards wants to pretend!). “They threw everything at me last year, the other women,” Lisa reflects. “It was nasty and it was mean-spirited.”
Lisa confesses to remaining confused about Brandi’s behavior – and her troubling relationship with Kim Richards. “I don’t have any understanding of her [Brandi] motives in any situation ever,” quips Ms. Vanderpump.
