When you grow up with a mom who’s made her entire fortune on the promise of reality TV exposure and paychecks, I guess it’s only natural to follow in her footsteps. Even if those footsteps map out a road to early and questionable plastic surgeries, partially-nude selfies, and fame-chasing! Brielle Biermann, Don’t Be Tardy star and daughter of Real Housewives Of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciack-Biermann, is no exception.
Brielle and boyfriend Michael Kopech, a White Sox pitching prospect, recently visited the windy city – and Brielle fell in love! With Chicago, that is. She posted the above pic, captioning it “obsessed with you and chicago.” So, what’s the next natural step? Requesting a Real Housewives of her very own!
I don’t know about that Erika Jayne character, but I am digging Erika Girardi on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills lately. Is it her icy dismissal of the grotesque and annoyingPK Kemsley? Or her schoolgirl giddiness when reading for a bit part on The Young And The Restless with Eileen Davidson? Maybe it’s her ability to let panytgate go long before the others caught up? Nah. It HAS to be because Yolanda Foster-Hadid is gone! That must be it. In any case, she wins this year for Most Improved Housewife in my book.
In her blog, Erika recounts her nervousness on set at Y&R, the “INCREDIBLE” location of Kyle Richards’super cheesy Great Gatsby party, and the relentless sobriety-story-sniffing of Eden Sassoon. But first, Erika praises Lisa R’s barbecue: “This week Lisa Rinna is having a real deal barbecue. Like, a grill and burgers and jeans barbecue. I love it. She has such a sweet family. Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray are two well-raised, bright, young women, and I enjoy getting to know them more and more.”
It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you: Ben Robinson, cheeky chef and low-key Lothario of the high seas, will not be returning to Below Deck next season. Oh the humanity! One season of crankiness and now he’s OUT?! The Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean star reportedly had contract negotiation issues with Bravo, though details are vague.
With Kate Chastain facing legal fallout from the domestic battery charge brought against her last year, and now Ben’s abrupt departure from the franchise, one has to wonder: Will there be a whole cast shakeup? I’ve just got one request for Bravo – people, we beg you, no more Chef Beefcheeks! Leon Walker is no beuno, no matter how hard up casting might be.
First, Lisa focuses on the good points of the episode – namely, Kyle’s party. “The party and property were gorgeous, and I knew Kyle wanted me there, so I begged Ken to cut our stay short.The flamboyancy of the flapper era was an era I would have thrived in. The sheer glamour was a sight to behold on that evening, and I was glad I made the effort to go. Everybody was resplendent in their costumes, a visual feast for all.”
“What a great week!” exclaims Dorit. “My afternoon with Eileen and Lisa R was so much fun and just what we needed, something uplifting and a great way to bond! We were all in a playful mood. Being from the East Coast, roller blading wasn’t anything I’d ever tried before, but we had a lot of laughs.” Um, rollerblading exists in Connecticut, right? Thought so.
In her blog, Erika wonders why Eden is so invested in Kim’s sobriety (or lack thereof) anyway? But first, she gushes about the fab time she and Kyle Richards had in Mykonos. During the trip Erika says she was “thrilled to have Kyle here with me. I’m happy that she and I were able to have dinner by the beach before the show madness began. I enjoy Kyle’s company, and I find her very easy to relate to. She’s both a mother and a business woman, and it’s nice to feel that mutual support.”
