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!”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s resident pot-stirrerKenya Moore is not letting her age or marital status stop her from keeping her eyes on the prize, a bouncing baby boy or girl. Kenya recently revealed her plans to undergo invitro fertilization in her quest to join the ranks of mommyhood.
The 44-year-old former beauty queen first made her surprising announcement last year on her highly rated reality show. On one of the episodes, Kenya had a few friends and family members over for dinner when she heralded, that she might need a larger home for herself. Baffled loved ones were then given the news that Kenya planned on expanding her household to include a child. “I’m going to have a child. I have an appointment to see a fertility specialist,” the dramatic diva coyly stated. Instead of being met with ecstatic enthusiasm, Kenya was faced with varying degrees of skepticism on as to whether or not, she can actually fit the unending demands of motherhood with her full schedule. One friend retorts: ‘You’re a busy person. Having a child takes time and patience. Do you have that?’ Kenya’s Aunt Lorie, who helped raise her, then lays down a boom by posing the question, “Why do you feel that you want to have children so badly?” Kenya then forlornly responds, ‘I’m so tired of not having my own family.”

Lisa Rinna lightheartedly meanders through her blog in this week’s reflection on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Giddy up! She gushed, “What a fun episode this was to watch! So many really laughable moments went on this season, and it’s great to see them among some of the drama and speculation we’ve been seeing already.”
On her mani-pedi day with her two daughters, Lisa shares, “Of course, as you know, I love the time I spend with my girls. Oh, the conversations we have! The sassiness coming from Delilah Belle as she tells me her curfew is now 11:10. What is that? Who did that? Why? Was that a Harry Hamlin thing? Was it Delilah Belle? Was it me? I want to know who came up with this 11:10 curfew for her, because it’s just weird. Clearly, the art of negotiation is alive and well in our household.”
DIY Network released it’s Winter 2016 schedule, which is bursting with renovation and rehab shows (i.e. my favorite kind!).
Most exciting Scott McGillivray and Income Property (formerly on HGTV) is back to make me believe I can turn my soggy, dodgy 100-year-old basement into an apartment befitting a Fredrik Eklund listing! It ain’t gonna happen but a girl can dream of having more lucrative renters than her cats, right?!
Income Property premieres February 18th, so sadly we have to wait practically eons to see Scott’s latest renovation wonders.
