Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin was a guest on Watch What Happens Live tonight, along with the always hilarious Kristen Johnston, who was promoting season 3 of her comedy "The Exes". Also in the clubhouse was Lydia's mom Judy, acting as bartender.
Andy opened by showing some adorable old video clips of Lydia as a young girl, doing news reporting and even a PSA she did for child abuse awareness. She has seriously always been this sweet and cute.
The first caller asked Lydia why she's such a Debbie Downer about her mom's marijuana use. "I don't think I'm a Debbie Downer and I think I have the right to my opinion. She's my mom and I love her."
Right off the bat Melissa wants to clear up that she did let her kids stay to have cake at Gia's party even though the editing looked as if she didn't stick around. I can say that seeing all of the photos from the event, Melissa was definitely there with her kids for a long time. She was in the photos through many stages of the evening, so they really whittled down the birthday party footage/drama.
Melissa shared, "I did let my kids have cake and then we got out of there." When Andy commented how nice it was to see Kim D. back on the scene, Melissa replies, "Yes, isn't that wonderful?" in a heavily sarcastic tone. She then explains that things are good with her and Kim.
Last night Andy Cohen sat down the ever-so-crazy ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey for a little tell-all dish session and some word association. Word association was the best part and if Teresa Giudice's skill at the game is any indication of how she did on the SAT's, well… errrr… yeah.
Other than word association, the flashback photos were A-MAZ-ZING. Lord knows I love an 80's Jem & The Holograms hairstyle. And speaking of 80's, 'Vacations all I ever wanted; Vacation time to get away… from RHONJ before it even started!' (Courtesy of The Bangles).
The Real Housewives of Atlanta elder merely said what we all know to be true - that Melissa observed Teresa's fame and "success" from Real Housewives of New Jersey and wanted a piece of the pignoli cookie, but then she came on the show to try and usurp Mrs. Giudice's Flipping Throne. And mama don't play when it comes to who wears the designer pants in the Housewives family!
Speaking the truth always makes waves so Brandi and Melissa are both fighting back! Melissa, who will be part of her own WWHL special this Sunday (featuring all the S5 Jersey girls), suggests that NeNe is a little scared of the newbies nipping at her heels.
Last night Sheree "She By SheBroke" Whitfield made her return to Bravo on WWHL. I am pleased to report she is just as She By SheDelusional as ever. Thank goodness that some things never change! Although it's too bad Sheree had a "falling out" with Lawrence because her weave was not looking super great!
Andy Cohen, who loves to get a rise out of his guests, played the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star a clip of Iyanla Vanzant discussing Sheree's appearance on her show. Iyanla did not mince words.
"I think when people are allowed to get away with bad behavior for a long time they become very brittle when you challenge them. And I also think when someone is controlling they can't surrender," Iyanla said of Sheree.
NeNe Leakes sat down withAndy Cohen for an epic one-on-one interview on Watch What Happens Live. I have to say, NeNe was really candid, blunt, and endearing. And she's a wealth of information! I wish I could do a one-on-one and ply her for secrets.
First up, in case you weren't aware: NeNe definitely considers Real Housewives of Atlanta "her" show. And she's very protective of original Housewives in general. "I'm the star, I'm the boss. When people think of Atlanta Housewives, they think NeNe Leakes," she informed Andy.
Shockingly, NeNe says that Sheree used to be a really low-maintenance, and didn't wear extensions or makeup. "She was just this plain girl and had this really great life with this really great athlete." They were friends since Sheree's newlywed days and hung out all the time. NeNe was her sidekick at many a Falcons' games when Bob was still playing.
NeNe will also dish on her upcoming wedding spinoff, I Dream Of NeNe and the publicity stunt rekindled relationship she has with Kim Zolciack. Personally I'm hoping for some good ol' fashioned "Close your legs to married men, trashbox!" mayhem – maybe Sheree will be a surprise caller. One can only hope, right Boo?!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the episode, so please join us!
NeNe appears on WWHL at 8/9c. A video preview is below!
Porsha, with co-guest Vivica A Fox, pulled in 2 million viewers for the late-night talk show and it ranked as the highest rated episode of the season! That's a double-digit boost (or 43%) from last Sunday's episode!
