Former Real Housewives of Atlanta could-have-been-regular cast memberAmiyah Scott was supposed to be a fixture on the Bravo hit reality show but was reportedly, so put off by the producer’s antics, she called it quits. Despite all of the show’s fanfare and praise for featuring Amiyah, as its first transgender cast member in the franchise, she refused to be the stereotype that the show’s producers wanted her to portray according to TMZ.
Amiyah had actually made the one month of filming mark on RHOA. When the show’s plots smacked of devious underpinnings like producers wanting to sexualize Amiyah and have her act “like a vixen” which was not in her character, her patience grew thin. The news outletthen claims, the actress went on to reveal how producers wanted to make her look like the “bitch of the cast,” when she instead strived to become a transgender role model.
Jeff Lewis and Vicki Gunvalson both know a little bit about Flipping Out! They’ve also both been on reality TV since Bravo was a channel people were still trying to find in their expanded cable package. So, they know a thing or two about how this game works, and how to work it when the chips are down. This begs the question: Are Andy Cohen’s OG’s joining forces now that Vicki’s future on the Real Housewives of Orange County has come under scrutiny?
RHOC served up an exhausting season of watching Vicki defend her lying sack o’ shizz boyfriend Brooks Ayers over his claims of “fighting cancer” – followed by Vicki claiming she was “duped! duped, I say!” when the truth (at least about Brooks faking his medical documents) came to light. As a result, Vicki has some serious ground to make up with viewers who claim she is also a liar. But can Vicki’s besmirched reputation ever be restored to its former bed-wetting glory?
Former resident bad boy and Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, is seemingly not a welcomed guest at the famed family’s abode. According to an unnamed family insider who spoke to New York Post’s Page Six, Scott was not present and accounted for at the Kardashian clan’s much-talked-about Christmas party.
As a matter of fact, Scott’s name is reportedly not even uttered by the Kardashians which can’t be a good sign. According to the insider, “When he’s not there, no one’s thinking about Scott. They literally don’t talk about him. Everyone has their whole thing going on . . . I don’t think anyone cares if [Scott and Kourtney] are together or not.”
Recording and reality star husband and wife duo, T.I. and Tiny Harris had a merry Christmas indeed! The ride or die couple took to Instagram on the joyous holiday to announce via video that their “T.I. & Tiny:The Family Hustle” clan was about to expand, Tiny is pregnant!
Tiny, whose actual name is Tameka told her nearly 9,000 Instagram followers the following about her red-bow-topped baby bump:
“Merry Christmas, everybody. Thank you to my family for my wonderful gifts. Thank you to my husband for the beautiful chain…and these wonderful earrings,” then revealing her “tiny” baby bump with a bow on it she continued, “but most of all thank you for our new heir to the throne, the best Christmas gift you could give me, ever.”
Phaedra Parks isn’t afraid of putting self-proclaimed new queen of delusion bee Kenya Moore on blast, and she spent some time in her blog this week doing just that! Right or wrong, Phaedra is still convinced that Kenya’s “fears and poor communication skills” turned a sticky situation into an all-out brawl in Miami. The Real Housewives of Atlanta lawyer also discusses her thoughts on the plight of black men – and specifically black youth – in this country, and why the Miami incident sparked conversation about deeper issues.
Phaedra reflects on the Miami scene: “Everything happened very fast. One moment we were all having fun and in a split second things took a disastrous turn. Initially, I was shocked and stunned, but when I saw Tammy [McCall-Browning] on the ground, I sprung into EMT mode and went to help her. I took her pulse, checked her breathing, and determined she did not need CPR, so I just stayed by her side until the ambulance arrived. It could have been much worse.”
Eileen Davidson is not about to get caught in the middle of Munchausen Soup. But in this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she walked right into a steaming hot broth of it being stirred right up – by friend and castmate, Lisa Rinna. In her blog, Eileen comments on the more lighthearted moments of the episode, but does warn that the SH*T is about to hit the fan when it comes to the endless drama ofYolanda Foster’s health, and the myriad of questions surrounding it.
“Ken [Todd] seems to be having the best birthday week ever, right?” jokes Eileen. “He finally got his miniature horse, and his reaction was pretty priceless. But wait, there are two of them! And like he said, twice the poop. Hmmmmm. Maybe not the best birthday after all?”
Birthday girl Ariana Madix was all about unicorns and rainbows and sparkly wands this week on Vanderpump Rules. Except when she was crying, or trying to get her boyfriend to codependently take care of her, or casually not inviting certain members of the SUR staff to her hipster bouncy house party!
Reflecting on her “epic” birthday party, Ariana divulges a surprise move Tom Sandoval undertook to make her special day even more special. “Tom surprised me at my party by flying in my best friend Whitney of 10 years who had never been to LA to visit before. She and my friend Meredith hid inside a two-person horse costume and after doing an adorable little performance, Tom and Meredith unveiled that Whitney was in the head of the costume. My friend Lindsay Hand also surprised me by flying in. I was surrounded by so many people who mean everything to me and I got to do flips on a bungee trampoline with sno-cones at the same time!”
