You have to love Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Lisa Vanderpump. She can throw shade with the best of them and still sound classy to boot. For example, in her Bravo blog this week she touts her extensive charity work while subtly scolding Kim Richards for calling her a liar for saying she couldn't attend her daughter's graduation because she was out of town. She also schools her Emily Post style. As for Brandi Glanville's behavior towards Joyce Giraud? Lisa couldn't be more appalled, but it's so understated, it's like the perfect strand of pearls.
Lisa begins by talking about traveling to St. Louis for her volunteer work–and Giggy's!–to reveal why she wasn't able to make Kimberly's graduation shindig. She writes, "Now Giggy is a personality in his own right, so I needed a charity that would fit his profile — and children with alopecia was a perfect match. Now can I compare Giggy's hair loss with that of a child's? Of course not, but I knew that Giggy could make a difference, bring some levity to what otherwise can be a somber affair. When Giggy appears and we talk with the children and teenagers — many of whom watch him every week, many had just seen him on Dancing With the Stars — the message is clear. Should alopecia stop you being the very best you can be? We asked the children if they thought he would be cuter with his fur. They unanimously answered no he was perfect, so then I gently remind them that is the way people feel about them."
With her acting career um… stalling… NeNe Leakes is moving into the producer role. NeNe started her own production company last year NeNe Leakes Production True Entertainment and served as a producer for her spinoff I Dream Of NeNe.
Now NeNe is continuing with producing as she reportedly has three new shows in the works! A source told Jasmine Brand that while all the shows will be reality TV they will be decidedly different from Real Housewives of Atlanta fare. Meaning they won't show women fighting and socializing!
She begins, "Carlton asked me and some of her other girlfriends to meet up for a pole dancing lesson before we went over to Kimberly's graduation party. Although Kim and I were not super close at this point, I honestly couldn't remember a time since I've known her that she had hosted anything, so I was definitely not going to miss it. Carlton had a few drinks before our class. I was not on the same level, but almost instantly I starting feeling dizzy and nauseous. I assumed it was motion sickness from the poles spinning. But later I spiked a fever and was throwing up for the next day-and-a-half, so I think its safe to assume I caught some sort of bug and it wasn't just motion sickness." Oh girl. I was born, but it wasn't yesterday!
Continuing, Brandi writes, "We head over to Kim's and I thought it might be a good idea to grab a burger before we went in to hopefully help Carlton sober up a bit and help me to stop feeling so crappy. I feel bad I was ill at Kim's house, but it really couldn't have been helped. It was better that we didn't stay anyhow because Joyce was there in some ridiculous get up and I didn't want to have a confrontation with Miss Attention Seeker a high school graduation party."
Stop. The. Presses. No, seriously. This is some seriously big news, y'all. Tamra Barney Judge has bangs! I know, I could barely contain my excitement either. Go ahead, cheer–just not so loud that your boss hears you, and you get reprimanded for surfing the web at work.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Instagram to share some pictures of herself stylin' and profilin' with her new face fringe. I'm not a fan of Tamra's behavior, but I must say I think the new 'do suits her. However, several of her followers called attention to the filter she used above…the way her hair is shaded makes her neck look like the crypt keeper! Still, it's cute!
I have to admit that I listened to Brandi's podcast as soon as she shared it on Monday night at midnight. I listened to the interview in the first half of the show with new RHONY starKristen Taekman and there weren't any big revelations or any juicy tidbits, so I was going to skip the rest, but I got sidetracked while it kept playing in the background. The second half of Brandi's show was an interview with Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson from VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show". Brandi started off their interview showing her classy side. Joking about child molestation.
With ratings for this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills not that impressive (especially compared to their Real Housewives of Atlanta counterparts), Bravo is ready to do a recast.
Unsurprisingly the first name on the chopping block is Kim Richards. We've heard this rumor before and last season it was even stated that Kim was actually demoted to a supporting character but when Bravo was unable to find a third new lady willing to join they promoted her back to Housewives status. Unfortunately this season Kim's storyline is all about a dog and that is not grabbing viewers' interest!
Now a source tells Radar Online that this season will be Kim's last. “The network is not entirely happy with the ratings for the current season of Beverly Hills and sadly, despite being Paris Hilton‘s aunt, she has little going on in her life,” a production source says.
Carlton explains her policy about doing reality TV, "When I signed on to do this reality journey, I made a decision that it was all or nothing — the good the bad and the ugly. How can I show the honest story of who I am without honestly exposing who I am? Yes I've had a few messy moments that make my toes curl, but I own it and truly apologize when necessary. Who hasn't? Unfortunately mine was on camera! This is my truth, my reality. I'm not perfect, nor am I trying to be. If I start manipulating my behavior and start becoming rehearsed then it's just another one of them doing a bad acting job. It's fake. I don't manufacture anything about who I am, what you see is all of me — unedited so to speak."
That said, she explains that this week's episode wasn't her best and she offers an apology to Kim. "This week's episode is definitely not my finest hour. However I sincerely apologize if I appear insensitive to Kim's plight or to anyone else for that matter who suffers the same devastating addiction and battle. It certainly was not my intention to be disrespectful. I've already spoken and apologized to Kim."
