Last night was thriving on the cul-de-sac with the return of Sister Wives and, more importantly, Kody Brown's hair. Everyone is thrilled to be in their homes, and everything is as it should be. Kody can run from house to house–it's the best exercise routine ever! The wives are glad that the kids are in such close proximity, but the ladies are still as independent as ever…in other words, they still despise one another. Even with a commitment ceremony looming, the women's interactions are incredibly awkward.
Now that some of the older kids are preparing for college, the family believes that a discussion about a tuition budget should be at the forefront. Kody is anti-student loans. He doesn't want his kids to have any college debt, as if that's entirely feasible. Thanks for reminding me of my debilitating law school debt, Kodster! With Meri about to be an empty nester and Mariah wanting to go to a much pricier school, Kody thinks Meri should shoulder more of the financial obligation.
Robyn has Meri's back, but Kody isn't budging. They call in Mariah to share "their reality," and Christine informs the high school senior that her full time job should be trying to find scholarships. With seventeen kids, no one should get a full ride. A tearful Mariah (when is she not tearful?) explains that she wants to reconnect with her Mormon faith. Janelle wants Mariah to be able to go to the school of her choice. Kody doesn't seem to be onboard with this wife mutiny, and he reminds everyone that he's the common denominator with the children. He's such a prize.
The former Love & Hip Hop star was arrested yesterday after she got into a brawl at a New Jersey bar. Chrissy is accused of hitting the girl in the face badly enough for her to need stitches!
TMZ reports that Chrissy was arrested by Edgewater PD around 2:30 AM for aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. The recipient of Chrissy's drunken crazy required hospitalization and stitches above her eye.
“I love the new year, new beginnings," Khloe confesses to British Cosmopolitan as next month's cover girl. "I need a good fresh start; I’m excited for this year to be over with. You only live once so let’s make that one time perfect. We can’t fix our mistakes and imperfections, so let’s have fun. You get what you give out in life."
The Real Housewives of Atlanta continued their girls trip to Savannah where some unlikely bonding occurred – it only took a cockroach and some southern comfort food to bring them all together! Collective "awwwwwww".
Despite a fight about Chuck's very Housewives past, things are all fine the next morning as the women come together to make breakfast and gossip. Kandi Burruss shares that she and Todd "skypesex" and she shows him her vag. I hope she doesn't end with an accidental sex tape when Krayonce hacks her phone or something out of revenge! Apparently Porsha Stewart had something pierced down there: TMI.
Doing a 180, Cynthia Bailey says that Noelle has a boyfriend but there is no unsupervised time as the parents are very involved. She thinks it's better to be supportive than put her foot down and have Noelle rebel. "I'd rather be picking up Arthur than picking up a grandbaby," Cynthia explains. #cosign!
Kandi and Cynthia relate about parenting girls vs. parenting boys – as Phaedra Parks puts it, with boys you only have to worry about one "dingaling" but with girls you have to worry about everybody else's dingaling. NeNe Leakes doesn't care: she thinks Noelle is too young to date and Cynthia is making a mistake supporting it.
It appears that someone is still in the feeling the holiday spirit because Kanye West just gave us the best Christmas present ever. And I mean EVER! The tiny rapper has vowed to stop talking smack about everyone and everything for a while. He's promised us six months of Yeezus-free commentary. Thank you, sir.
Perhaps Kris Jenner has gotten her wish? You know she's behind this latest ploy. I should mention that 'Ye's latest declaration took place during a twenty-seven minute rant during his last Yeezus concert. Seriously, who goes to these things? It's not like he's going to perform!
Teresa Giudice and husband Joe took a little time away from hanging with this daughters this holiday season to do a little product promotion.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars got their hustle on yesterday at an autograph signing event in NJ. Teresa was celebrating her new Fabellini that is being produced and imported from Italy. She shared on Twitter, "Joe and I on our way to Bayway Liquors 639 Bayway Ave. in Elizabeth for the new Fabellini imported from Italy. Who is coming?". Plenty of fans did show up – and even Joe got in on the posing for photographs with fans.
The show is currently filming its new season, but it didn't look like cameras were on hand to film. I'm going to assume that they're taking a week or so off for the holidays.
If you look through the gallery, Teresa's jacket has the Fabellini name and logo blinged out on the back of it. New clothing line coming to an episode near you?
Yolanda Foster's former husband Mohamed Hadid couldn't bear the thought of Lisa's remaining swan feeling lonely in its pond, so he bought it another companion. Lisa was clearly thrilled, but no one was more excited than Giggy!
