In her blog, Eileen reminds viewers Brandi admitted to Lisa last week that an intervention for Kim might be necessary. “This week, Brandi‘s friend Jennifer, who happens to be an addiction specialist, says Kim taking someone else’s meds is a HUGE red flag,” adds Eileen. “She asks if Kim has a sponsor and is getting the support she needs. Since Kim and Brandi are close friends, why isn’t Brandi encouraging Kim to see a therapist or making sure that she has a sponsor? Brandi seems to think that Kyle doesn’t want to help Kim, leaving Brandi as Kim’s only support system. If that’s true, why isn’t she getting more actively involved?” In my opinion, first and foremost, Kim needs to help Kim.
But first, Lisa gave a shout-out to the viewers. “I love, love, love reading your messages of love and positivity about RHOBH. What I love most is that I really feel like you all get where I’m coming from,” she said. “When I talk about cuckoo passengers on the train, you understand that I am absolutely including myself when I use these funny phrases. We’re all on the same crazy ride, just sitting in different seats. I’m also incredibly appreciative that you all understand that I am truly coming from a good place with good intentions.”
In a recent interview, NeNe said she feels ganged up on (cue the violins) and revealed that she may not return (bring out the bubbly) to the show. “I feel like girls are purposely hired to gang up on me,” she said. “I don’t know if I have the patience for another season – all those women arguing is draining.” Yeah, yeah, we have heard that before, but NeNe always returns. I personally doubt Hollywood is calling NeNe’s name as loudly as she wants us to believe.
When asked to comment on NeNe‘s complaint, Kenya said, “I wish she’d just quit the show.” That makes two of us.
No official announcement has been made by Bravo – no shocker there – but a peek at the cast’s social media accounts suggests they’re filming. So who is in and who is out? This is total speculation on my part, but my guess is, Caroline Stanbury, Julie Montagu, Annabelle Neilson, Marissa Hermer, and Juliet Angus are in. And Caprice Bourett and Noelle Reno are out. If Caprice and Noelle were invited back, they did not join the others on a recent trip. As for newbies, Caroline Fleming and Sophie Stanbury (both in the picture above) top my list of possibilities. Caroline and Sophie, as well as Caroline Stanbury‘s friend and makeup artist Luke Henderson, went on the trip.
“The Emmy-nominated series returns for season 4 with superstar real-estate agents Fredrik Eklund, Luis D. Ortiz, and Ryan Serhant taking their professional and personal lives to the next level and the drama is at an all-time high,” promised Bravo. “Luis shifts his business into high gear as he takes on his first new development project. Ryan is charming his way through some of the biggest deals of his career, but his most important ‘deal’ yet involves his girlfriend, Emilia, and living happily ever after. Fredrik is officially New York City’s #1 broker, but he still faces a litany of challenging clients and colleagues, as he and Ryan attempt to work together for the first time.”
One thing is for sure, though; Andy Cohen cannot imagine a world which does not include RHONJ. I bet neither can the sequin and spray tan manufacturers.
“I can’t imagine not filming the Real Housewives of New Jersey,” said Andy. “It’s a big franchise for Bravo. I think whatever we do, we’re going to do it the right way, so we’re still figuring that out right now.”
