Actually Gretchen and fiance Slade Smiley were trying to score their own show and maybe they were successful. Apparently they're filming for a new show called Marriage Bootcamp, which is a Bridezillas spinoff (why do I think Slave will be the Bridezilla?). The show is NOT a Bravo show and when asked about Gretchen's involvement a cameraman said it was definitely not a Bravo show and Gretchen was involved but not the star!
I must say that Preachers of L.A. has grown on me much more than I thought possible. I adore Jay Heazlip and Ron Gibsonalthough only their wives were featured last night. Wayne Chaney is definitely growing on me. Noel Jones is hilarious…not on purpose, which makes him even more funny. Deitrick Haddon no longer makes me want to change the channel. Clarence McClendon is also, yeah, um… 😉 At least he was on hiatus again. If this were Bravo, I'd classify him as a "friend of the preachers."
Last night's episode begins with LaVette Gibson doing what she does best…meddling. She has called Jay's wife Christy and Wayne's wife Myesha to join her for lunch so they can impart some last minute advice on Dominique before she weds Dietrick. Of course the ladies don't know about their quickie marriage a few weeks before so they could cohabitate not in sin. LaVette is sad that she and Ron will have to miss the ceremony due to a trip to Haiti. Dominique wants to know how the women enjoy their husbands outside of the church together. Myesha is quick to "connecting frequently" because she won't say "sex." LaVette likes to experiment with different locales when getting busy. As Dominique notes she's a pastor's wife in the streets but a freak in the sheets.
Beginning her Bravo blog,Carlton writes, "I met Brandi [Glanville], Kim [Richards],Joyce [Giraud] and Kyle with smiles honestly hoping that we (Kyle, Joyce, and I) had just got off to an unfortunate start. I was happy to see Brandi, as she was another I immediately clicked with. She's completely uncensored, and I appreciated her humor when we first met at the BHCC. But what's impressive is how after divorce she has been able to take care of herself financially."
Quickly, her tirade against Kyle begins, and it's oh-so-hilarious! Carlton shares, "Anyway we barely had walked into the barroom when immediately Kyle asks if I was raised Catholic? Oh bloody hell here we go! Maybe it's me, but when I'm welcomed into the home of someone I'm relatively new to meeting, religion is not usually the first question I lead with..it was a probable indication as to how the rest of the day would go with this one…Oh joy."
Welp, that break-up didn't last long. Just kidding, we all know that Love & Hip Hop is totally scripted, so Tahiry Jose taking Joe Budden to task over allowing a "female" friend wipe her face all over Tahiry's bedroom was just drama courtesy of Mona. I'm sure in "real life" the pair have a normal, healthy, stable relationship. No, I couldn't get through typing that without laughing…
The couple recently appeared on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan where they discussed current projects, the status of their relationship, and–what else?–selfies. Just so you're informed, Tahiry loves selfies of herself but thinks that guy selfies are "corny." Professor Budden opines, “Men can’t take selfies, ‘cause we’re men.” Brilliance in its truest form.
As for how they are keeping busy now that filming has wrapped, Joe shares that he's just finished his third studio album while Tahiry is the new owner of a club called Suite 135 in Harlem. Does this mean she can quit waiting tables? Make sure to check out the buzz and learn Joe's Rules for Selfies! #themoreyouknow
Reza complains about how Lilly acts like she is above the rest of the group – yes, really – and he's proud of MJ for finding her voice. Wait. Let me get this straight. A few months ago, MJ was a sloppy pill popping lying alcoholic, but now she's appropriately reacting to the hate that Lilly spews? Got it.
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi thinks Lilly's right, in this instance, but she chooses not to speak up. I have a feeling she comes to regret this.
Last week at the Human Society To The Rescue Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street, Jacques was pimping his new wine and talking politely about his former lady love, The Countess.
Jacques had a tasting table set up at the event for his newest wine venture Gabriella Wines and chatted up Tom Murro on their split. "Jacques was in a super great mood, he goofed around posing for pics with me and my +1, Olympic Skating great Sasha Cohen, in the photo booth. He didn't seem heartbroken and didn't have a bad word to say about the Countess."
