Andy Cohen is the ringleader when it comes to all things Housewives, not just the reunions. The former Bravo executive is the man we have to blame for our weekly obsession. It all started with an idea to go behind the gates of Coto de Caza and see how the other half live in the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now we have multiple versions that we can watch a couple of nights a week, all year long. Thanks Andy!
But when Andy really shines is when he is trying to referee a housewives reunion or interacting with guests on his late night gab fest Watch What Happens Live!.
Andy recently opened up with a few snippets into what it is like to host a Housewives reunion, how he preps and what WWHL guest made him the most nervous.
Well, it's official! Abby Lee Miller is engaged. RT, dibs on recapping the Dance Moms spin-off that's sure to surround planning her big day! After months of speculation and vast amounts of Twitter love thrown back and forth, the villainous star of Lifetime's hit has confirmed that, yes, she is in fact betrothed to Michael Padula.
Wait, who? Well, according to his Twitter, Michael is an Italian actor, "voiceover king," and TV host who has a penchant for tweeting–and retweeting–all things Dance Moms. If I didn't know better, I'd say the handsome(ish) mystery man was just a major super fan…until I came across tweets about how beautiful Abby is even when her hair is up in a towel and how much he loves her.
Never saw this one coming! Vicki Gunvalson has brought a level head to an argument between friends! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has often been full of contradictions. We all remember her screaming at Gretchen Rossi — dressed for the 80s with crimped hair, no less — about Brooks' issues with his outstanding child support being none of her business when Vicki had brought up Slade's child support issues numerous times in the past.
Well, apparently that is the Vicki of past seasons. Because when it came down to choosing sides between Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow, she brought a level head and logic to the table. She explained her rational decision in her latest Bravo blog.
Ahhh, the rite of passage known as one's twenty-first birthday. I remember mine fondly. After all, it was just a couple decades years ago (around the same time Evelyn Lozada celebrated hers). I had a Spanish final exam the morning of my birthday, so none of that hitting the bars at the stroke of midnight the night before…oh no, I just had to start the festivities at lunch on the big day. And talk about stylish! I was sporting a turtleneck, Pilgrim shoes, and high-waisted jeans (how they are making a second round in fashion is beyond me), and damn did I look good as I hit up all the classiest joints Clemson had to offer in the late '90s. I'd say my twenty-first birthday was almost–ALMOST–as over-the-top as Evelyn's night out for daughter Shaniece Hairston…except I didn't get a Benz…and I still can't look at butterscotch Schnapps.
Over the weekend, Shaniece was treated to a major time in Vegas this past weekend courtesy of her mother's new fiance generosity. She was even gifted a Mercedes Benz G550. Every twenty-one-year-old should learn about the responsibilities of adulthood by driving a car worth well over $100K, right?
Hmmm… this is curious! Lisa Vanderpump and her restaurant Villa Blanca were sued by former server Karina Bustillos (who is also an aspiring actress) after she alleged that manger Michael Govia sexually harassed her, grabbed her arm, and then created a hostile work environment.
Additionally Bustillos claimed that Ken Todd did not take her complaints seriously and she was forced to quit as a result. The case is odd to say the least. According to testimony of another former manager, Bustillos had been fired before, refused to work with another male employee for an unspecified reason, and was demanding her schedule be changed so she would only work with general manager Andrew Morrison. Karina was given two days off, with pay, but then it was decided she would not be compensated for the lost wages totaling about $300. At that point she both quit and filed suit.
Trying to keep up the charade, Sonja has been claiming that she actually sold the property but court papers prove otherwise! Sonja was attempting to liquidate the property for $8 million to settle the $7 million dollar judgment against her, but it failed to sell. The court then decided she wasn't making a serious effort and took matters into their own hands.
When is enough, enough? How many things can you put your name on? We are treading into NKOTB territory here. Kim Kardashian has her name on perfume, tanning supplies, diet pills, a clothing line — for women and for kids — and a line of cosmetics. So what is the natural next branding step? Why a video game, of course!
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a couple of pics of her latest project to her Twitter and Instagram accounts on June 17 to drop the bomb that she is now coming to us in animated form.
