My mother always told me that good things happen to good people. When I would complain that the mean girl always seemed to get the dream guy or the amazing job, she would remind me that mean people are often miserable no matter what successes they have. She'd say we should feel bad for those who are so hateful and be thankful to have love in our hearts and not be one of those people. Snarking on reality stars aside, I think it's sound advice…and she was right! Just look at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
Brandi Glanville has struggled to get back on her feet after a nasty and public divorce, and she's tried to be as straightforward and honest (if not totally brash) when it comes to her life. Her frankness and sharp tongue have proven to be Brandi's greatest allies as she gets the last laugh on her haters. Likewise, Adrienne Maloof, who had me fooled season one, has channeled her inner mean girl, and it's not very becoming.
No-ching? This is one commission check it doesn't appear Mauricio Umansky will be cashing!
On last week's episode of Real Housewive of Beverly Hills we saw Marisa Zanuck asking Mauricio to co-list her inlaws' massive mansion! Well either that was just staged for the show or Marisa and Mauricio had some sort of business transaction gone wrong!
Marisa's infamous father-in-law Richard Zanuk passed away in July. As a result his manor was up for sale. Marisa and Mauricio agreed to co-list the stunning property for $23 million. The Wall Street Journal reports the property just sold for $20.1 million with Marisa being the sole realtor for the sale!
Not surprisingly, Lisa is approaching the reality competition like she does everything else in her life…with hard work and her biting wit. Oh, and Giggy of course! She'll be dancing with new pro Gleb Savchenko, and from the looks of things, Lisa is fierce as ever!
Viewers of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have never felt indifferent towards the resident duck-lipped, wine swilling misfit of Rodeo Drive. No, I'm not talking about Kim Richards. Taylor Armstrong always garners strong feelings from fans of the show. The woman once packed herself in a suitcase for goodness' sake! However, this season, Taylor, while still every bit the train wreck of seasons past, has certainly come into her own.
Taylor is no longer kissing the arses of her wealthy co-stars, and she's even taken to making fun of herself on Watch What Happens Live. Now, she's waxing poetic about her new beau who, as you all remember, was her married attorney John Bluher. Things are looking up for Ms. Hughes!
Pieces (as in pieces of a$$) is celebrating it's tenth anniversary this March and Brandi will be signing on as one of the show's host! According to the show's website she will be featured as the Celebrity Guest CenterPIECE!
As for what the show is about – it sounds right up Brandi's alley!
"Ever wonder what goes on in that pretty little head? This groundbreaking production features a series of original 'Pieces' delivered by a cast of the country's most dynamic actresses, exploring what it is that defines an attractive woman – from the perks and privileges, to the problems and pressures," says the show's description.
Congratulations Brandi! She is having one heck of a fabulous 2013 so far! Her book is also rumored as being optioned for a movie!
“She stiffed me. I was not pleased … Also I feel it was bad for her because, why let six women have the last word on an entire season? I think she should have been there to speak her mind, and she may be surprised with some of the directions the conversations took.”
That's right, last weekAdrienne Maloof announced she would not return to the show that made her tacky a nation-wide horror and for that we mourn. Or snark. And you know what that means: it's time for a Housewives Retrospective!
And without further ado, we say good-bye to out first lady of terrible facelifts, Adrienne!
