LeeAnne Locken is coming for Cary Deuber, even though no one sent for her! And with The Real Housewives Of Dallas finale just around the corner, Cary is in full damage control mode about the allegations Brandi Redmond and LeeAnne are making about her husband, Mark. Cary defends her role as the “babysitter” for Mark’s children with his ex-wife, as well as accusations that she and Mark had an affair before divorced from their former spouses.
Cary describes telling Mark about LeeAnne gossiping about his, um, alleged social activities at The Roundup – and her own gossip about LeeAnne’s fiance, Rich. “I was dreading telling Mark about the negative things that were said about him and Rich — both of them. I was disappointed in myself for sinking to LeeAnne’s level to take a swing at a spouse; while I was ashamed to admit to Mark what I said, I was relieved to have it off my chest with the group and with Mark. What stung even worse, though, was having to tell my husband that the same hateful rumors about him were STILL being spread by the same Two-Faced Texan who had promised to turn over a new leaf last year.”
Nobody puts Siggy Flicker in a corner, according to Siggy Flicker. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star takes particular offense to Margaret Josephs trying to shut her down, especially because it was Siggy who “brought her in.” Jeesh – we’re only weeks into RHONJ, and alliances are already crumbling under the ladies’ feet like rickety boardwalk planks! Siggy breaks down her feelings on most of the group – except Dolores Catania – turning on her in Boca, and why she cannot be silenced.
This week brings us the series premiere of The Platinum Life. The cast of “music’s most savvy women and their significant others” includes Crystal Smith, married to NE-YO; La’Myia Good, married to Eric Bellinger; Shantel Jackson, in a relationship with Nelly; Lola Monroe, in a relationship with King Los; Asiah Azante, married to Kid Ink; Nazanin Mandi, engaged to Miguel; and newly single recording artist Alycia Bellamy.
Check out the reality TV listings list, which includes the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen guests for the week, and let us know what you’ll watch.
Teresa doesn’t think Siggy’s dramatics over the cake throwing incident were warranted, but she really got her drawers in a twist over Siggy calling MelissaGorga and her “animals.” She explains, “This episode started out with the aftermath of ‘Cake-Gate.’ I really wasn’t happy watching as Siggy called Melissa and I ‘animals.’ Just like Siggy thought us throwing the cake was in poor taste, I thought what she said about us was also in poor taste.”
When Siggy Flicker told us last year that some people think she’s “too much,” she was minimizing reality! Because The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star came out swinging, shouting, and fighting right away in the premiere episode of Season 8. Siggy has no regrets about her behavior, though, instead concentrating on how others in the group are upsetting the apple cart – namely Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs, who Siggy seems already pitted against.
Vague health scares and extremely questionable diagnoses seem to eternally plague Vicki Gunvalson, but when it comes to her daughter, Briana Culberson, the diagnosis is real. Last year, The Real Housewives Of Orange County star revealed that Briana had been diagnosed with Lupus, a chronic auto-immune disease that can target and damage any part of the body.
Brianahasn’t discussed Lupus or her symptoms much on this season of RHOC, but Vicki shares that it’s been a tough ride for her. “Lupus has affected part of her heart, it’s literally something every other week,” says Vicki, adding that Briana’s immune system has been compromised as a result of the disease as well, which opens her up to viruses.
It’s a new day in the Garden State, and that means everyone is suddenly singing the praises of ex-villain, Danielle Staub, including Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s very own Melissa Gorga. The season eight premiere set viewers up for some interesting dynamics to come, including Siggy Flicker being batsh*t cray-cray, the introduction of pigtail-bedecked Margaret Josephs (who actually seems kind of bada$$ and potentially awesome), and the return of Danielle. Melissa, for one, couldn’t be more delighted that she’s no longer the villain with this new setup!
But the first episode also replayed the sad loss of Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice’s beloved mother, Antonia, who passed away earlier this year. Melissa admits it was painful to watch it all back again. “Watching the memories of my mother-in-law and hearing her voice brought instant tears to my eyes. She was a wonderful woman, and her life was taken way too young. I never thought I would see the day that Joe broke down and couldn’t work or get out of bed. He was devastated and heartbroken for weeks and still is.”
Melissa, Danielle, and Margaret may not agree on everything this season – except that they think Siggy is kind of a mess. Margaret shares, “I don’t think we have a villain, but we have the insane. I don’t like to throw shade, but I do have to say that Siggy acts a little crazy – over the top. You know, she walks in a restaurant screaming, she cries very easily, her emotions run high. So that doesn’t really gel with me. I’m a little sarcastic, call it like it is, don’t cry at the drop of a hat.”
