brandi-glanville

For Christmas, all I want is for Brandi Glanville to stop making excuses for her recent behavior on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Y'all know me. I was Team Brandi for a long time. However it irks me to no end when people claim to take responsibility for their actions and then qualify the blame elsewhere in my next breath. It's like a thief saying "I really shouldn't have robbed that bank because it was wrong. However, it really should have had a better security system." Um no.  That's not how it works.

After last week's episode, Brandi is very apologetic for her drunken antics. She's embarrassed. It was wrong…but Joyce Giraud made her do it!  Because of editing we won't get to see what a horrible person Joyce is…or at least that's what Brandi wants us to believe.

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson isn't doing any back-pedaling when it comes to his controversial interview published in GQ magazine.  This weekend Phil invited the Daily Mail to listen in as he addressed his church's Bible group in Monroe. 

Phil didn't mince words and stood firmly behind what he said in his GQ interview.  He also reiterated that his beliefs haven't been a secret, he's been preaching these same thoughts for years now and feels he's just sharing the word of the Bible. Phil chatted with the group for almost an hour and did defend himself, claiming he is a lover of humanity.  "‘I love all men and women. I am a lover of humanity, not a hater.'  

About his interview statements, Phil told them: ‘I didn’t think much of it at all, but it seems a lot of other people did.  I have been immoral, drunk, high. I ran with the wicked people for 28 years and I have run with the Jesus people since and the contrast is astounding. I tell people, "You are a sinner, we all are. Do you want to hear my story before I give you the bottom line on your story?"  We murder each other and we steal from one another, sex and immorality goes ballistic. All the diseases that just so happen to follow sexual mischief… boy there are some microbes running around now. Sexual sins are numerous and many, I have a few myself. So what is your safest course of action? If you’re a man, find yourself a woman, marry them and keep your sex right there.  You can have fun, but one thing is for sure, as long as you are both healthy in the first place, you are not going to catch some debilitating illness, there is safety there.  Commonsense says we are not going to procreate the human race unless we have a man and a woman. From the beginning Jesus said, "It is a man and a woman." Adam was made and Eve was made for this reason. They left their fathers and mothers and be united to become one flesh, that’s what marriage is all about."

Tonight the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta terrorize the gorgeous southern town of Savannah with their crazy drama!

They got off to a rocky start last week when everyone arrived hours late to NeNe Leakes' pre-party and things just did not turn around. 

Tonight Phaedra Parks has issues with NeNe's friend and rumored new Housewife Mynique Smith over rumors that Phaedra used to um… be quite close with Mynique's husband Chuck! Phaedra denies this of course.

Kandi Burruss also reportedly has a past with Chuck and the two reportedly dated when he was still relevant years ago!

I open this post with the same line every week – it has been a busy week for reality TV news, drama, ups, down, blah, blah, blah. This week? I mean it!

Hands down, Phil Robertson's shocking interview with GQ was the most talked about topic. (Congrats, Joe and Teresa. Nobody cared about your 41 Counts this week.) A&E suspended Phil following the backlash, but then the family let it be known that they "cannot imagine the show going forward" without Phil. Fans were left wondering if Duck Dynasty has a future on A&E – or anywhere else.

We would love to hear your opinions about the Duck Dynasty controversy; however, please read the reminder at the bottom of this post before you jump down to comment.  Oh, by the way, this other stuff happened this week too:

Nothing like reality TV to break up a few relationships! This year several reality stars called it quits on their longtime relationships, sometimes shocking the viewing public. And some PR stunts just didn't pan out. Unfortunately many of those meltdowns included plenty of scandal!

farrah-sex-tape-cover

As if her delusions of grandeur aren't troublesome enough already – Farrah Abraham has been named Google's most searched for reality TV star in 2013.

According to Google Zeitgeist, the search phrases "farrah abraham backdoor", "farrah abraham video", "farrah abraham tape", and "farrah abraham full" were wildly popular between May 5 and May 11. Gross. Considering Vivid released the Teen Mom star's porn video on May 6, I'm willing to bet the vast majority of Farrah's fans were more interested in her backdoor than her reality star status.

In the good news department, interest in Farrah (via Google anyway) has been declining since July. Also? Kim Kardashian ranked a lot lower on the list than I would have guessed.  My heart sings!  However, Teen Mom and Kardashian stories constantly end up at the top of Reality Tea's most viewed list, so neither Farrah nor Kim is going to fade into obscurity anytime soon. Unfortunately.

tamra-barney-judge

Well, it seems that Tamra Barney Judge may not be getting her way any time soon in regard to having her three children appear with her on Real Housewives of Orange County. Her ex-husband Simon Barney doesn't want the pair's kids anywhere near Bravo's cameras…and a judge may feel the same!

Tamra recently petitioned the court requesting that Simon's ban on the children being filmed be overturned. Simon claims that their two oldest children, fifteen-year-old Sidney and thirteen-year-old Spencer have been subjected to "social ridicule" by classmates after Tamra's often raunchy behavior on the show. Somehow I don't find that hard to believe in the least!
