Holidays are about fambly. At least that’s what Real Housewives of New Jersey’sTeresa Guidice is claiming about her decision to spend Thanksgiving alone at Danbury Correctional Facility, where she’s serving out her eleven and a half-month sentence until December 23rd of this year.
Teresa says she doesn’t want husband Joe Giudice and their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, to visit her on Thanksgiving day because she wants the holiday to be “as normal as possible for the girls.” Normal may be in the eye of the beholder, but good on her for trying!
Ariana says hearing about Shay’sissues made her feel “helpless.” She shares, “I know from personal experience that it can be hard to open up to those you’re close to about serious struggles because you always want to be positive and you don’t want anyone to worry. However, it felt horrible to know that they were taking on such huge issues on their own. I also worried that because I don’t have much knowledge about addiction combined with depression that I would give advice with the best intentions, only to be doing more harm than good. I wanted to urge them to see a professional immediately.”
When famewhores collide the opportunity for love and attention blossoms. Former reality stars Aubrey O’Day and Pauly D are now dating!
Aubrey and Pauly have been filming “Famously Single“ – you know that new reality show Brandi Glanville is also on – apparently fell in love during filming and decided to be famously coupled! (“Famously” used loosely.)
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!
