Eileen begins her blog reviewing the lunch hosted byKathryn Edwards, which took a wrong turn after the ghost of Kim Richards came to haunt the table. “I don’t think anyone expected lunch over at Kathryn’s house to be so emotional. Although, it seems that whenever Kim’s name is brought up, lots of buttons get pushed. When Kathryn broke down while divulging the details of her father’s suicide, I was heartbroken. She has been affected by a loved one’s addiction in the worst way imaginable…It was brave of her to be that vulnerable, and I’m honored she felt comfortable enough to bare her soul and cry.”
Ashley Darby is the youngest cast member of Bravo’s newest Real Housewives franchise: The Real Housewives of Potomac. Despite her pint-sized frame and youthful glow, she’s not afraid to take on the tough posse of etiquette-obsessed Potomac ladies she’s been cast alongside. I got a chance to chat with Ashley this week about everything from how it feels to debut on reality TV to why she’s a self proclaimed “adrenaline junkie!”
How are you feeling about the first episodes of RHOP? “Very excited. It’s surreal to see yourself on TV. It’s just about getting to know people, spending a lot of time together. There are always going to be some bumps in the road. Having spent as much time with them [the cast] as I did, I really feel like I know them well now. I actually consider them my friends – even though it did take some time. We are forming a foundation.”
Gizelle Bryant is not mincing words when it comes to her two younger castmates’ behavior on this week’s Real Housewives of Potomac! Whether it’s in defense of the dirt dug up on her good friend Robyn Dixon, or the eye bleach we all needed after witnessing Katie Rost publicly swap spit with her boyfriend Andrew, Gizelle is ready to call it like she sees it.
But first, a few words about her ex-hubby, Pastor Jamal Bryant, who made an appearance on RHOP for lunch with their kiddos. Gizelle explains, “My girls absolutely love spending time and doing fun things with both their parents. Jamal and I love our kids and want to see them happy so anytime we get together it is nothing but fun and laughs. As a divorced parent my responsibility is to make the best situation possible for my kids and anything less is just selfish.”
In her video blog, Lisa Vanderpump efficiently breaks down the Stassi Schroeder situation on Vanderpump Rules. It goes a little something like this: “Me s***ing on Stassi, really? I think she’s the one that s*** on me with her insincerity.” Boom.
Lisa further maintains her stance that Stassi is not important enough to hate, noting “It’s not that I’m angry with Stassi, I think it’s real disgust that she would come and see me, take up my time, and be totally disingenuous.”
The highlights: Yolanda Foster on Watch What Happens Live, the return of Survivor, the season finale of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars, and TheBachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love. About the special, which features the wedding of Bachelor in Paradise couple Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, Chris Harrisonsaid, “It has been an amazing ride: 20 seasons. Everybody’s back. All our alumni are back. This big happy, dysfunctional family that I love so much.”

This pic is worth loving for so many reasons: 1) Kandi looks incredibly happy and fit, 2) Soft little baby heads! Awwwwwww! and 3) #NoShameInHerGame with that dirty kitchen! Kandi is keeping it real for new moms everywhere. I don’t know whether it’s the takeout box, the bouncy seat, or what looks like a ripped-out weave on the counter that I like best! #KandiRocks! #RealMomsHaveFilthyKitchens #Yep
Yolanda Foster and her endless “journey” are infesting this season’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills like lice in a kindergarten class. Everyone’s itchy. But Patient Zero is not happy (or rather claims she’s not happy) about her children getting involved in her StoryLyme. Because she’s only interested in exploiting them through sick-kid selfies, photoshopped by Yo herself! Yolanda took her her blog this week to go on…and on…and on about the many splendored feelings she has about her health, her children’s health, her castmate’s opinions about her and her children’s health. You know, the usual!
After thanking Bravo viewers – AGAIN – for partaking in this “journey” with her <gag>, Yolanda writes, “I am happy to share that it’s been a pretty good week…What is a good week? For me, it’s about more bright moments of ‘I’ve got this, I CAN DO THIS!’ than usual. Treatments, pain and severe fatigue still keep me in bed 18 out of my 24 hours each day, but I am grateful for the luxury of reading and writing again. Healing the brain is a slow process and on its own clock, but I am for sure making steady progress–one day at a time.”
