I never thought I'd be Team Silex about anything, and I mean ANYTHING. However, when you have to choose between somewhat creepy Silex and uber-creepy Dourtney, what else can you do but side with former Real Housewives of New YorkstarsAlex McCord and Simon van Kempen? Of course, I'm talking about a feud that started out on VH1's Couples Therapy, so perhaps that is where I first went astray. I am addicted to this insanity, and I'm not proud of it.
Joining Silex in the therapy sessions, at least up until a week or so ago, was everyone's favorite May-December romantics 52-year-old "actor" Doug Hutchison and his 18-year-old wife Courtney Stodden. I don't have to tell y'all that she was sixteen when the pair married and seventeen when Couples Therapy filmed. Due to child labor laws, Courtney wasn't allowed to film as much as the grown-ups and couldn't stay in a bedroom with her hubby.
If you've been tuning into the train wreck (and I know you secretly have!), you know that Courtney's parade of bikini tops as shirts, Lucite stripper platforms, and belts that she tried to pass off as skirts had the other couples up in arms. Her wardrobe was deemed a major distraction, and Dr. Jenn imposed a strict dress code. Courtney was forced to wear things that covered her belly and didn't flash her bits. The passive aggressive Courtney adhered to this dress code for one day, although she clearly shopped for her conservative clothing at Hoochies 'R Us. From that point, things continued to go down hill for Dourtney. No amount of gum smacking, eye rolling, or hair twirling could save them!
The Kardashian sister trio is complete again. Khloe Kardashian-Odom finally joined her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, over in London this weekend (after finishing up her X Factor duties). Khloe arrived just in time for the official launch of the Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins at the Westfield Shopping Centre.
London LOVES the Kardashians, y'all. Like LOVES them. Loves them so much they caused a stampede at the mall this weekend! If you take a peek in the gallery (second page) below you'll see shots of the sea of madness! Police had to talk to the crowd and worked hard to keep things under control. There were a few reports of injuries and girls fainting. The shopping center let people camp overnight before the line opened up at 7 a.m. Media outlets report that "when the number of fans reached 10,000, the situation became chaotic."
That is crazy. Overnight camping for a meet and greet / clothing line launch? I think someone lied and told them it was a Twilight premiere.
I've long believedReal Housewives of Atlanta's popularity in part derives from its diversity. While all the other Housewives franchises are serving up rich, white ladies of the bleached and botoxed variety, Atlanta has stood out from the pack by offering variety – and one that better represents America. Apparently NeNe Leakes agrees with me.
"In the…'Real Housewives' franchise, we are the only brown girls," NeNe said speaking to The Insider. "You can always turn on the TV and see those Beverly Hills girls, those Miami girls, those New Jersey girls, [and] New York girls and you still sort of…get the same flavor, but when you turn and see the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' you're getting a group of brown girls."
NeNe also believes the lack of obvious plastic surgery and the still moving faces has something to do with why viewers watch. It is true that Atlanta serves up emotion like none other – and it's possibly because their faces have more than one frozen, puffy expression!
Gary Brown, the victim, decided to press charges and due to the severity of the act it was promoted from a misdemeanor to a 3rd Degree Felony. Last week Peter, 20, decided to plead "Not Guilty," reports CBSMiami. Peter did not appear in court, but his attorney entered a written plea and the judge set a court date for November 29th.
If convicted Peter could face up to five years in prison.
Moving on, Karent Sierra has had a difficult time adjusting to her co-stars on Real Housewives of Miami. And her sparkly veneers are cutting everyone the wrong way. Speaking to NBCLatino, Karent confesses she just doesn't care what the other ladies think and she had no intention of being BFF with the entire cast!
She also dishes on her TV/fame aspirations and how Rodolfo went from love of her life to yesterday's news as soon as the Bravo cameras stopped rolling.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Let's face it. No matter how hard the universe tries to dissuade her, Kate Gosselin's quest for a new reality TV show is never going to end.
Accused of child abuse? Kate's not spooked. Publicly humiliated by a coupon blog? No sweat off Kate's back. Hurricane Sandy unfairly coming between Kate and her hair salon? Well, that one almost brought her down. Obviously, Kate has priorities. Through it all, Kate keeps trying… and trying… and trying.
Reportedly, Kate and Kendra Wilkinson have participated in new reality show titled Mom Swap. According to Robert Hoffman, the author of (not for sale) Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, Kate's latest endeavor left her kids traumatized, which doesn't sound like Kate is completely believable.
Who doesn't love a Bravo housewife? Furthermore, who doesn't love to see the dirt on the original ladies (okay, so technically one original lady with a bunch of add-ons throughout seasons past) as they all vie for media time? The Real Housewives of Orange County are so funny. The love out-doing one another. And, let's be honest, isn't that why we watch?
While we wait for the OC ladies to make yet another debut, it's fun to see what they are doing in their off-time. For example, Heather Dubrow is all about touting herself as the show's "voice of reason." Yeah, I get she doesn't engage in her co-stars' drama, but that doesn't make her an expert on peace. However, she is an expert on being sickeningly rich and passive aggressive, and for that, I think she's amazeballs.
In the meantime, original gunner Vicki Gunvalson is all about supporting local theater. You have to love that she can take a joke, as she is the biggest fan of the theater group that satires her bread and butter with their rendition of of the Real Drunk Housewives. Finally an honest portrayal of these girls!
