It may be Sophie Stanbury’s first season as a full-time cast member on Ladies Of London, but she’s certainly come out of the gate swinging – though not at the target some might have expected. Former sister in law and friend, Caroline Stanbury, is in her crosshairs this season, and their relationship continues to be contentious post-filming, it seems.
But wait! Sophie recently spilled the news that her sons are visiting Dubai, where Caroline’s family relocated this year. So…are fences being mended after all? According to Sophie, not exactly.
Though Kenya and her dad were once estranged, Kenya explains how their newfound closeness is giving her strength during her very public messiness with Matt Jordan. “My dad was only 15 when I was born,” explains Kenya. “He wasn’t in a position to take care of me when my mother wanted to give me up for adoption. Through the years we have struggled as I never understood why we were always at odds or not speaking at all…sometimes for years at a time.”
I’ll admit it: I am rooting for Cynthia Bailey. Now that she’s dropped the rather large dead weight of Peter Thomas from her assorted life baggage, The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star can get on with the business of being fabulous. And this season, that seems just like what she intends to do!
A word of advice to every cast member of Vanderpump Rules: Stop with the day drinking, already! As we saw on this week’s installment of VPR, Stassi Schroeder would benefit greatly from a clear head when facing her imaginary rivals at surprise-not-surprise parties far and wide. And, according to Stassi’s commentary on last night’s episode – she agrees!
“Lesson 1: don’t agree to go up to ppl to ‘talk’ after 6 hours of drinking in the sun,” tweeted Stassi last night after witnessing her sloppy behavior on camera, adding, “Lesson 2: be fake so that I get a good edit.” So, which is it: drunk or fake? I’ll put my money on both!
It’s no secret that Caroline Stanbury has been the unchallenged HBIC on Ladies Of London since its debut season. But is Julie Montagu trying to rip the Queen Bee crown from her perfectly coiffed head this year? Caroline and perpetual hanger-onJuliet Angus seem to think so. Although Caroline argues that she did not give herself the royal status on Ladies of London – the viewers did!
Caroline argues, “I do not think you can orchestrate a title like that. If Julie wants my title, take it. I didn’t set out to be Queen Bee. That’s something that’s been given to me by the viewer and [with] my personality.”
In this week’s blog, Dorit counts her many blessings, which include pampering from hubby PK by way of her extravagant fortieth birthday party, and the cherished visit from her parents. “At first I was dreading my birthday, but with PK by my side, I knew things would be OK. Inviting my parents out for the special occasion was really important to me. I absolutely adore my parents and had to have them here to celebrate with us…I truly treasure the time we get to spend together and seeing them with their grandchildren.”
