As for the new shows, oh boy, are there some surprises – Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel teaming up to scout, buy, and design amazing properties, Shep Rose looking for love, Ryan Serhant training sales agents and showing off his skills, and more. Check out the list of new shows below.
Newbie Mary Russell came and went in the blink of an eye on Little Women: LA. Perhaps she was only slated to be a temporary character, or perhaps the coven of witches other cast mates drove her off? In any case, Terra Jole expresses regret that Elena Gant and Tonya Banks, in particular, couldn’t give Mary more of a chance. Their extreme jealousy fueled arguments with the newest little woman right from the start.
Terra is glad to see that Jasmine Sorge and Elena have bonded at long last, though. “I’ve always said that Elena and Jasmine will bond. Now that that’s happened, I truly don’t feel like Briana will ever be close again with Jasmine. EVER! It’s a normal transition for your friendship to change especially when trying to negotiate your home life. Elena and Jasmine not only have their relationship, but the bond of their husbands.”
“With friendships, I believe that it’s OK to let some stuff slide,” explains Luann, “but if something is really bothering me, I try to talk it out. Dorinda is the same way. She wants to say her piece and then move on.” And say her piece, she certainly did.
In her blog, Dorinda also recaps last week’s antics, which included Ramona questioning Bethenny Frankel about a decades-old horror flick in which she appeared nude. Or, as Ramona calls it: soft core porn. But first, Dorinda explains her sleeping arrangements in the Hamptons. “I am being pulled between staying with Luann [De Lesseps]and staying with Ramona, so I decided to split the weekend and stay with both. I was happy to finally see Lu’s newly renovated home, and it is gorgeous. It is exactly what you want a beach house to be—cozy, updated and with a view of the water. What more could a girl ask for?”
Alpha female Gizelle Bryant came out swinging with new cast mate, Monique Samuels. But now the Real Housewives Of Potomac star says she is letting her initial reservations about Monique’s “bragging” go – although she’s still side-eyeing the NBA wife and mom. As for Ashley Darby wanting to meet Charrisse Jordan’s estranged husband, Eddie, at their daughter’s sweet sixteen party, Gizelle understands. I mean, this dude has been the invisible secret hanging over Charrisse’s life for over a year now. People want proof that he actually exists!
Before breaking down her thoughts on the ladies, Gizelle comments on her mom – and her mom’s mad love for Gizelle’s current squeeze, Kevin. “I’m very happy that my mother likes a man that I’m interested in, but I think her love for Kevin is a bit much. Looking at how excited they are about seeing each other reminds me of the movie, How Stella Got Her Grove Back. Is Kevin’s real name Winston?”
In her blog this week, Terra Jole offers her thoughts on the latest episode of Little Women: LA. In particular, Terra makes a plug for the newest addition to the group (and possibly, a permanent addition to the cast?), Mary – who Elena Gant and Tonya Banksterrorized did not initially warm to. Terra also takes a moment to react to Briana Renee’s “boudoir photo shoot,” which she says was ruined by hubby Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer]’s leering, slobbering commentary.
Terra begins by joking, “With typical Little Women antics at an all-time high, and hearts healing at an all-time low, it’s been a real rollercoaster. For this episode, every time you hear the words ‘fashion line,’ it’s drinking time!”

“So we finally get to meet the new girl—oh wait, I don’t. But before I get there, let me talk about a few other things,” snarks Dorinda in her blog. “Hannah has decided to move out. It took a long time for Hannah and I to heal after Richard’s death. She decided to move back in with me, and I decided to mother her as much as I could during the aftermath of his death. It was the best decision for both of us, but now after five years she has decided it’s time to move out and get her own apartment. I am happy to say it’s in NYC and not too far away.”
