No one ever accused James Kennedy of having a filter! This is, after all, the author of the infamous “boning” line on this season’s Vanderpump Rules. But now he’s not holding back on his feelings about older version of himJax Taylor, nor his feelings of utter dread when it came to couples’ therapy with (ex) girlfriend Kristen Doute!
James says, “I find myself stuck between a rock and a hard place with Jax, constantly being the man looking for ways to sabotage my plans.” Although he finds Tom Sandoval a bit more palatable, as his past relationship with Kristen was “real,” Jax is harder to take. “I don’t have an issue with Jax unless he is being unrealistic…(which is most of the time),” James complains, “Sorry but it’s true, I feel like his jealousy overlaps with what he actually cares about. I don’t think he hates me, I just think he is intimidated.”
After the grown-man boyfriend showerPorsha Williams threw boyfriend Duke Williams on last week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the writing was on the wall. This relationship was probably headed for the rocks. Duke and Porsha have indeed broken up since filming, but Porsha says it was mainly due to distance…and “some other things that will come out in the show.” What these “things” are is anybody’s guess!
When it comes to her breakup with Duke, Porsha says it’s all about the “fall back game.” “My fall back game is gonna be strong,” Porsha tells Bravo, saying she’s “fallen back on Duke a little bit.” If you’re not sure exactly what that means, Porsha adds the following clarifying statement: “So, we kinda broke up a little bit…” (Huh?)
Briana Rene’e has been at the center of her share of drama on this season’s Little Women: LA. I got a chance to sit down with Briana to hear her side of the story on a year filled with changes: including a new marriage, music career aspirations, and shifting alliances with old friends. Here’s what she had to say about that, and much more!
Did you ever think you’d wind up on a reality TV show? “You know, I didn’t. When you watch stuff you always wonder what it would be like, but until I was offered the opportunity, I never considered it seriously.”
“To say the least, it’s definitely been a wild ride! The fact that I am myself completely – what you see on screen is who I am off screen – I make myself basically wide open to the public and vulnerable to positive and negative reactions. It really is wild. It’s an experience that you can only really understand if you’re in it. It’s been a wonderful opportunity and an amazing platform for educating the public though.”
What is your relationship status with each of your cast mates right now? “At this point, we’re giving each other space, but are seeing each other when the opportunity arises. At the end of the day, you realize you were friends, you are friends, so you take it day by day. I mean, it was rough. But you don’t just end a friendship because you have one big argument.”
What would happen if former Dance Moms star Kelly Hyland and Basketball Wives producer and star Shaunie O’Neal joined forces? WE tv seems to have the answer to this burning question. To be honest, it makes my head spin to even contemplate the insanity of it all!
There is a perfect recipe when it comes to reality television that is guaranteed to bring the drama…and the ratings. Combine one group of back-stabbing friends, stir in a pinch of one-upping behavior, add a dash of a competitive activity that adds stress and pressure to any family, and finally (the most important ingredient!), toss in a bunch of sweet and talented kids whose talent and sweetness is only usurped by their mothers’ desire to be the center of attention in any situation. Bake for one season, and you’ve got what is sure to be a staple on my DVR…Basketball Moms!
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.
