The most common question for every mother on Dance Moms: Why do they stay on the show to face the wrath of Abby Lee Miller? Never was that a more obvious than in the case of Chloe Lukasiak, who was a phenomenal dancer and a genuinely sweet girl, but horribly mistreated by Abby.
Chloe and her mother Christi Lukasiak finally left the show in season 4 over Abby’s abhorrent treatment of Chloe – Abby went so far as to mock Chloe’s appearance – and for the fist time Christi is speaking out about their time on the show and what finally prompted her to cut ties with Lifetime and Dance Moms.
Andy shares a sneak peak of all the drama and reveals some surprising things that happened on reunion day. And of course some not so surprising things, like that Luann de Lesseps got into it big time with Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson! “Luann was guns blazing and I have never seen her so fired up,” reveals Andy.
Claudiaconfirmed the firing on her Facebook page. She thanked the show for giving her an opportunity to move to Atlanta and appear on RHOA. The show is on vacation this week and Claudia’s last gig was reporting from the Essence Festival last week.
Where there is Brandi Glanville, convoluted drama with a million different stories is always lurking nearby. Most recently there is the constantly changing story about whether or not Brandi was fired (or quit or demoted) from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
Last week Brandi said she was offered a part-time role but opted against it in order focus on the zillion other amazing opportunities dropping in her lap like a Chippendales dancer. Now she tells Australia’s NW Magazine in her column “Brandi Snaps” that she was fired!
“This week has been crazy!” Brandibegins. “I talked to Yolanda Foster and Kim Richards. Lisa Vanderpump actually emailed me. She was like the first to email after I got fired, which was very weird. I was shocked, it was very unexpected.”
Yesterday the Real Housewives Of New York taped their reunion. Amid a season of off-the-wall drama, serious friendships ups and downs, major cast changes, and the yet unseen “uncool” utterance, the reunion was sure to be epic. Especially with with 8 Housewives!
The reunion ran all day, beginning in the morning and didn’t wrap until after 9 PM. Andy Cohen had a WWHL taping with Jeff and Jenni scheduled, and raced from the RHONY reunion set, right into the WWHL studio. Talk about pressed for time.
Well, well – look who finally put his big boy underoos on and popped the question! Tom Schwartz has finally caved to Katie Maloney‘s demands and proposed to his girlfriend of a zillion years. And no, there were no rings on strings involved, just rings that came with strings called long-term commitment.
Y’all know what this means: Another Vanderpump Rules wedding! Katie announced the news on instagram with a photo of her wearing the engagement ring while Tom 2 nuzzled her neck (yay for finally making physical contact!). “So I said… YES!!!!” she gushed.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are still in Turks and Caicos, but they’re starting to panic, one mosquito caught in a macrame dress after another. Of course Ramona Singer is annoying everyone, and if there were Ramona-Off, it would be in constant use.
Bethenny Frankel is making lunch, because I’m sure there’s some Skinnygirl salad from her book, or she was trying to pimp her new Skinnygirl salad dressing or salad tongs or salad croutons made of compressed air and over-active imagination of what carbs actually taste like. But drama with Ramona eclipsed her Skinnygirl Self-Promotion Brigade.
Ramona is demanding everyone eat lunch at a restaurant. Bethenny is pissed, because she’s been cooking and that’s hella rude on Ramona’s part! Bethenny chases Ramona around the beach house yelling that she’s manic. That, my friends, is the true definition of Irony By Bravo – Skinnygirl Margarita glass calling the Pinot Glass empty.
