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.”
Since we were royally shafted out of a Below Deck reunion this year, Bravo is throwing us a (very tiny) bone by way of a catch-up blog, highlighting what the crew has been up to since cameras stopped rolling and regrets they have from their days aboard Valor.
A few juicy details are revealed, but maddeningly, Kyle Dixon spills absolutely no beans about his shady shenanigans of late. Thus, we must continue to stalk him on social media for answers. Sigh. #TheTruthIsOutThere
Kate Chastain left the season on a low note with former friend and sometime-lover, Ben Robinson. Since then, though, she admits that she’s seen Ben from time to time – and that he’s had more than one lady friend by his side over the past months! What? Bemily is OVER? Say it ain’t so!
Season four of Below Deck sailed into the sunset this week; thus we are left with Captain Lee Rosbach’s final searing blog in its wake. Though a fair amount of drama happened throughout filming, Lee reflects that his crew didn’t seem to learn a whole lot from it. But he sure did.
“From a captain’s point of view, I learned a lot,” writes Lee. “For instance, I found out that no matter how well you feel you know your crew and how they will behave in a given set of circumstances, you really don’t know them as well as you thought you did. People I thought were loyal weren’t and some who I thought weren’t turned out to surprise me. I’m not going to get into names or specifics here, but I really was not all that pleased with our overall performance this season. And for that I must bear responsibility.”
