Watch What Happens Live

Lydia McLaughlin

Knowing that Lydia McLaughlin was going to be one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live, I was expecting a soft interview with lots of shameless plugs for her magazine. Surprisingly enough, only the latter was true. Fans who called in and tweeted questions for the Real Housewives of Orange County star really went in with the questions.

Lydia was almost as flustered as Shannon Beador was at Ava’s birthday party when Lydia kept mentioning Vicki Gunvalson. Lydia was almost as thrown off as Shannon and Tamra Judge were after Kelly Dodd “unexpectedly” showed up to dinner when Lydia actually invited her. I’m trying (and failed) to think of some way to incorporate the words “pot stirrer” into that old “pot meet kettle” expression, but if you’ve been watching RHOC, then you probably get what I’m going for: viewers were stirring shit up with someone who has been accused of stirring shit up.

One season of Real Housewives of Atlanta was all it took to show actress Kim Fields that reality TV was not her dream job, but she hasn’t sworn off Bravo completely. She stopped by Watch What Happens Live last night and dished with Andy Cohen about her stint on the show and talked about her upcoming work, as well.

Andy plays a clip for Kim that shows Queen Latifah saying she thinks Kim restrained herself on Real Housewives of Atlanta. So Andy asks “Were you restraining yourself?” Kim says “I think, first of all, there’s a difference of ‘what are we talking about?’ and a lot of times the stuff Dana and I..when you’re making a TV show and talking about that and your careers and everything, it’s kind of different than somebody ripping you apart over a he said/she said. You’re trying to be real. It’s like mmm whatever.”

Jax Taylor and Captain Lee on WWHL

The Vanderpump Rules spin off series with Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright has been tough on their relationship. With a show that’s centered around the couple, it’s inevitable that every single argument and offhand comment is going to make it into the episodes. Plus, they don’t have the 343 Vanderpump Rules cast members to hide behind.

Not only that, but there’s just no way that Jax insisting that Brittany has “lost her spark” so many times is not going to be featured. Jax had to answer a lot of tough questions from Andy Cohen when he appeared on Watch What Happens Live. Well, they weren’t exactly challenging questions to answer, but Andy definitely didn’t go easy on Jax.

Tamra Judge

Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Orange County has become another show that has relied on “gay rumors” to be insulting and scandalous for the sake of a story line. This time it’s Vicki Gunvalson perpetuating rumors that Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and not faithful to Tamra Judge.

So, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that Tamra’s enemy Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex best friend Ricky showed up to Vicki’s birthday party and “just happen” to gossip about Eddie. It is very obvious that multiple people planned out that conversation ahead of time.

Watch What Happens Live

If it wasn’t already clear that there are two distinct sides on Real Housewives of Dallas, the latest Watch What Happens Live episode made that very clear. Andy Cohen had Brandi Redmond, Stephanie Hollman, and Cary Deuber in the clubhouse, and as expected, LeeAnne Locken was the hot topic of conversation.

Then again, when is she not? If it wasn’t for LeeAnne and her friction with the cast during Season 1, there is no chance that this show would come back for a Season 2. No matter how much these women dislike LeeAnne (spoiler alert: it’s a lot) they should all be grateful that she is providing content for this show… and apparently for Watch What Happens Live as well.

Asa Soltan Rahmati on WWHL

No pregnancy has caused as much of a stir as Asa Soltan Rahmati’s on this season of Shahs of Sunset. From Mercedes “MJ” Javid taking Asa’s pregnancy announcement as a “sign” that she herself should get pregnant to the entire cast questioning the conception of her then unborn baby, Asa’s pregnancy has provided more story lines than she ever has this whole time.

Obviously, this doesn’t sit well with the self-proclaimed Persian Pop Priestess, and she had some choice words for MJ when she and Destiney Rose were guests on Watch What Happens Live.
