Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is headed back to the Jersey Shore – but this time, she’ll be cleaning up messes instead of being the mess. Earlier today, Nicole and her husband, Jionni LaValle, announced that they’ll be starring in a new reality series, Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip. The premise reminds me of Flip or Flop – which I love – on HGTV. Nicole and Jionni will be flipping, with their own money, homes ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Nicole shared, “With spending so many summers growing up at the shore, and then finding love there with Jionni, we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to start our business together. Jionni has always wanted to flip houses, and with my love for interior design <she did an amazing job with her own house> and do-it-yourself crafts, this project is a dream come true. We are excited to bring our passions to television and can’t wait for our fans to see us on this journey.”
Ariana announced yesterday that she and her bestie of ten years, Meredith Kate, launched their own podcast, The Bevs. Their new podcast will cover current events, pop culture, and chit-chat. She Tweeted, “@meredithk8 and I have a podcast! @wearethebevs is passionate about friendship, adventures, world events, staying informed, and making fun of it all (and ourselves).”
Vickitweeted yesterday, “God answered our prayers today. Briana/Ryan put an offer on a house today in OC and it was accepted. Everything is finally coming together.” Briana, Ryan, and their two boys have been living in Oklahoma due to Ryan’s military posting, a move that neither Vicki nor Briana seemed too thrilled with.
It looks like Traci Harrison Tsou made the right decision to take a hiatus from the drama of this season’s Little Women LA in order to focus on a healthy pregnancy with hubby Erik. Because Traci has now delivered a healthy average sized baby boy, Jacob Christian Tien-U Tsou! Jacob was born 8 lb., 20 oz. and was 201⁄2 inches long.
Tracitweeted today, “Thursday Nov 12 was the best day of our lives,” with a link to the PEOPLE Magazine story of her son’s birth. She and Erik suffered multiple miscarriages before carrying baby Jacob to term, a feat that doctors had previously told the couple might never happen.
The countdown is on – 62 days until the premiere of the Real Housewives of Potomac. Not only are we excited about new women (to love and love to hate) in new cities, but we’re also looking forward to the Real Housewives franchise getting back to basics (we’re holding you to it, Andy!).
Last week, Andy Cohen dished on what viewers should expect from the Real Housewives of Potomac and the Real Housewives of Dallas. “Both Dallas and Potomac remind me of really early Orange County and New York,” said Andy. “It reminds me of early Housewives. It’s the way they communicate. It’s about how they live their lives, and it’s about families. It’s very grounded, and it harkens back to early Housewives for me. Both of them. It’s really interesting.”
Another day, another story about the morally corruptBrooks Ayers! At the center of a firestorm of controversy, Brooks is finding himself without many allies these days – even the formerly loyal Dubrows.
Terry, Real Housewives of Orange County husband of Heather Dubrow, isn’t definitively saying whether he believes Brooks has cancer or not. But he does think he’s sick – in the head. Having “always been a supporter of Brooks,” Terry says he doesn’t “love” what’s going down recently with Brooks’ admission that he falsified medical documents.
Terry argues, “If he doesn’t have cancer, he’s sick on another level. Sick on a psychological level, and he needs help.”
After a hiatus from RHOA, Sheree is back and ready to face the Twirl. She just didn’t know she was going to face it as soon as she laid eyes on Ms. Moore! Sheree shares, “What did I just walk into? Let me start by saying that I’ve met Kenya once or twice in passing through our mutual friend. It was only a hello! I’ve never sat and had a drink with her, broke bread with her, or had a conversation with her, so of course I was completely caught off guard and just as surprised as the other girls that someone would go into attack mode after less than two minutes of being in my presence when they didn’t know me! I knew she would be intimidated by my return.”
