Suffice to say, it’s going to be a season packed with drama, babies, and fractured friendships. In a recent interview, Terra Jole spoke out about the state of her relationship with former bestie Briana. An avid hater of all things Matt (which doesn’t really separate her from the rest of humanity), Terra says she still doesn’t want to throw away a lifelong friendship with Briana. Terra claims she and Briana are currently on speaking terms but, “Whether it’s great or horrible is a whole new story.”
St. Louis fans were really in an uproar when the St. Louis Rams were moved to California and were renamed as the Los Angeles Rams. So now I’m pretty curious about how people will react to the new E! reality show associated with the reborn NFL team.
I feel like E! loves these sports-related shows these days, but none of them are major hits, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one goes on top of the fact that the LA Rams are a pretty polarizing team these days.
Dahhhhlings, we may now safely un-clutch our pearls! It’s official: the queen bee shall return to season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Despite rumors that Lisa Vanderpump may have been exiting the franchise, the reality star has now confirmed that she’s signed on for another season. However, she’s got some stipulations for Bravo. (And why shouldn’t she!?)
Lisa, who needs neither the money nor the fame, has negotiated with Bravo on what she wants her storyline’s focus to be, namely her charity work. A long time LGBT and animal rights advocate, Lisa is demanding asking that the cameras focus on her work in the fight against AIDS and in putting an end to the horrific Yulin dog market, which celebrates a dog-meat eating festival yearly.
For a woman who has lashed out at viewers for judging her too harshly, Briana Renee sure loves to spread her dirt around in public! Telling the press this week that her parents are forbidden from meeting their grandchild, her new son Maverick Jax, the Little Women: LA star claims it’s all “out of protection for my son.”
Briana, who is married to the illustrious sexting aficionado, Matt Ericson (Grundhoffer), accuses her parents of spreading lies about her and her marriage. In an interview this spring, Briana’s father told media sources that he was afraid for his daughter, who he deemed “gullible,” and that Matt was a master manipulator who controlled every aspect of Briana‘s life, including her phone communication. Briana hasn’t spoken to her parents in over a year.
Real Housewives of New Jersey didn’t seem like Dina Manzo‘s happy place when she reluctantly appeared on it in her last season. But no matter! She’s found her happy place in real life now, with younger love interest, businessman Dave Cantin. The couple met through work in Dina’s charitable organization, Project Ladybug.
After her divorce, Dina says she was sort of “done” with dating. “I was fine just never falling in love again,” says Dina, but adds “you know, I guess some things happen when you’re not really looking for it.” Cantin was also in the process of divorcing when the duo met. Dina attributes their compatibility to their shared passion for helping others. She says she and Dave are both “really passionate about helping children with cancer,” which is the mission of Project Ladybug.
We all know (in disturbing detail) about Matt’s despicable behavior: that he was explicitly sexting other women while his wife, Briana, was pregnant with their son. That he ultimately blamed Briana for having “a part to play” in his gross misdeeds. That he’s an angry, vengeful, and downright frightening dude. We also know that Briana, in her codependent and depressed state, ultimately forgave her bad boy for all of this – and more. But apparently, she’s not too pleased with a new turn of events. Trans model Plastic Martyr – a former friend of Briana’s – has already filmed a scene with LWLA star Christy McGinity Gibel in which she describes the “naked photos and sick messages over Instagram” Matt sent her.
They say you can’t go home again, and I would think that adage would certainly ring true for those crazy orange guidettes and gorilla juice heads who entertained us on the Jersey Shore. Gracious, I miss them (well, most of them).
Of course, it won’t shock anyone to learn that I was mistaken. You can go home again if you’re Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, and your one-time home is a wood-paneled wonderland complete with a duck phone and astroturf patio that smells of Sunday dinners, regret, and Axe body spray.
