Leslie Birkland is too chicken shit to show her face. She joins the others via video camera from a secret location. #psychward
Bonnie jumps right in, calling Leslie a lying bitch. Warning: if you take a drink every time someone says bitch, you're going to be plastered 10 minutes into the show. Vivica asks Leslie why she's in hiding. She says, "Because of what happened the last time I was with these so called ladies. They attacked me." Is she trippin'? Well, at least drama queen delusions never fail to entertain.
Connie tells Vivica, "Leslie lied so much, she shouldn't feel safe. She should be sitting there be herself."
Everyone returns to Real Housewives of New Jersey with one notable exception: the producers! Melissa Gorga revealed that the show is currently filming and all the ladies have returned, but a couple things are different. Firstly, there have been NO fights.
“So far, so good,” Melissashared with The Huffington Post. “There are a lot of fun scenes I have taped with my husband and family that I think are going to be hysterical. We are all here. We are all back."
Melissa does confirm the rumor that new women are joining the cast but she's uncertain how involved their roles will be. "There are a few new faces scattered around — I don't know if they are 100 percent housewives. Two new faces, but we are still the same five.”
I always wanted a sister, and maybe that's why it is so heartbreaking for me to see the demise of Kim Richards and Kyle "Splits" Richards relationship on the past and present seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Check that. If I'd had a sister, there is no question we would fight like cats and dogs (I'm feisty!). However, no imaginary sister of mine would have been cool enough in my younger years to carry Disney's Witch Mountain franchise. Furthermore, had I been blessed with two sisters, the lesser known, but very flexible one could never have pulled off starring along side Bette Davis in the freaky Watcher In The Woods. NERAK!
I realize that I often reference this movie when discussing Splits, but it's amazing. I'd tell you to Redbox it, but you probably need to find your local dying Blockbuster to locate it and see Splits in all of her supernatural glory. I feel like knowing the Richards sisters' past makes me more cognizant of their present. A sober Kim is clearly ridding herself of the demons that found her playing the teenage breadwinner, and Kyle is still uber-jealous that her older sister was the breakout child star. I should stop playing arm chair psychiatrist and get on with the post, right? My apologies.
Thankfully, now that the season we're currently watching has wrapped, everything seems to be much better with the Richards sisters. Thank goodness. Their family drama was painful to endure…at best!
This was a good week for our favorite reality shows! It seems that everyone is getting back into the swing of 2013, and with a routine comes our favorite old habits…watching some of the most fantastically trashy television series known to man.
Days after filing for divorce from Jason Hoppy, the woe-is-me publicity tour begins for Bethenny Frankel. Who didn't see this one coming?! While Jason has remained mum about the details surrounding their separation, the Bethenny Ever After star who claims she's tired of living in the spotlight is disproving her point by beginning a torrent of media appearances.
First up Bethenny's made-for-TV friend and talk show benefactress Ellen! Bethenny sat down with Ellen today where the 42-year-old bawled about marriage not being a fairy tale and fame letting her down. Get your tissues ready. #sarcasm!
A weepy Bethenny announced that she feels like a failure for lasting a paltry three-years in her marriage. "I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you and I feel like a failure."
Most disappointing to Bethenny is the unfortunate realization that life is not a fairytale. "I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale," she revealed.
It's official! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are moving in together. Unfortunately for us, the house is on this planet. Despite my best efforts to convince Sir Richard Branson, he refuses to offer them a free space flight and leave them stranded on the moon. I really tried to pull some strings. Sorry.
As you all can imagine, the tiny rapper and his poorly dressed lady love (I have to remind y'all of this. Seriously?) aren't just moving into any house. To paraphrase a drunk Kanye, I'm gonna let you talk, but this is the best house of all time. For realsies.
