Real Housewives of Atlanta’sNeNe Leakes is one busy woman. Not only is she on a hit Bravo reality show, she’s guest starring on Glee and working on her new sitcom The New Normal. With all of that television craziness on her plate, she simply doesn’t’ have time to add another project into the mix. Sorry Donald Trump!
Apparently, The Donald had hoped The Neenster would join his famous brethren on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars. Unfortunately, the grueling schedule was just too much of a commitment for NeNe. She would have likely been too tired to bring drama of NeNe style proportions.
I am super excited. Not only is one of my favorite reality shows returning for a third season, I don’t have to wait for the winter season for it to air. Plus, I get to see some pretty hot musicians.
NBC’s The Voice will be returning on September 10th, and the show is keeping it fresh with some new changes (take note, American Idol!). The Voice is a unique reality competition with a format unlike any other. Unlike Idol, the contestants seen by viewers are all talented, and half of the season isn’t centered around crazy auditions. The music competition features coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera creating teams of singers based on their voices alone. Once the teams are assembled, they battle each other in the early rounds.
Last night’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta began where last week’s left off…with a butt whupping session from Joseline mid-therapy. Once they get her under control, Mimi Faust admits that she lied about staying with Stevie J. just to see Joseline’s reaction. Joseline going crazy with jealousy confirms Mimi’s suspicions that Stevie is still seeing Joseline…despite what he’s told her. The therapist questions Mimi’s intentions, and she says she just wants Stevie to leave her alone. After hearing all of Stevie’s lies, she’s now interested in Joseline’s side of the story.
Joseline is teary-eyed talking about her lonely childhood. She admits that she didn’t know much about Mimi because Stevie only referred to her as his baby mama. Had she known they were still together, Joseline never would have started things with Stevie. Um, yes she would have–it was clearly in the script!
Aviva Drescher andSonja Morgan have already started the tepid steps to disband their barely consecrated friendship. Following a disastrous trip to Miami and Sonja’s friendship with Aviva’s ex-husband (the intrepid, blundering, moon-faced, womanizer Harry Dubin), Aviva has about had it up to [insert Harry’s disappearing hairline] HERE.
In her Bravo blog the Real Housewives of New York star expresses just what is so troublesome about Sonja’s relationship with Harry. Aviva is forthcoming and honest in her sentiments, which is quite frankly shocking (albeit) refreshing for a Housewife and for that we thank you.
“If I had a magic wand, I would have married Reid 12 years ago and had Harrison and Veronica as ours without having to share them. Sharing children with ex-spouses can be very challenging. It becomes even more painful when you have to pretend to get along with your ex around your children,” Aviva begins.
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies (and their omnipresent hardworking spouses) proved that when push comes to shove and contracts are on the line, they can get along like really, really well. In fact the only people not pasting on their happy faces were Caroline Manzo and husband Albert – who I was surprised to hear speak last night.
Things begin with a wake-up binge drink-a-thon amongst the men. The gang decides they are going surfing despite the freezing cold water and their inebriated state of mind. Everyone except Caroline and Al. They prefer whine to wine. Jacqueline Laurita is also sitting this one out because she feels too fat to wear a wetsuit. Didn’t she have this problem last vacation?
Never willing to spare anyone’s feelings both Teresa Giudice and separated at birth sister-in-law Melissa Gorga both strap on some of their more bodacious, sparkly, and revealing bathing suits. ‘LOOK! I’m not fat!’ they both practically shout. The guys are wiping out left and right when Teresa and Kathy Wakile decide to try out their surfboard skills. Melissa is staying ashore to “keep it sexy,” which apparently equals bedazzled. Very, very bedazzled. Like blindingly so.
Last night’s Big Ang episode wasn’t as lighthearted as the show usually is. There were no jacuzzi spills or drunken bus rides. It was all about A.J.
Ang is beside herself that A.J. is at Riker’s Island for “allegedly” selling drugs. Until he makes bail, she’s watching his allergy ridden dog Kilo. His dog is named Kilo? Again, “allegedly” selling drugs. Perhaps A.J. is just a fan of measurement. Poor Kilo is shedding, and itching, and blind. Ang can’t wait for A.J. to come home and claim his dog.
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago was a whole mess of drama, but thankfully no one got slapped. That’s a plus, right?
The ladies are doing a breast cancer walk in honor of Leah Disimone‘s mom. Renee Fecarotta Russo and Pia Rizza are first to meet Leah. Nora Schweihs and Christina Scoleri are on their way, and Leah hopes that there won’t be any drama. Nora is willing to put her differences aside to support Leah’s mom. Renee isn’t sure she’ll be able to do the same, but she and Pia say that they’ll walk with the group. Nora thinks it’s weird that Renee and Pia are walking arm in arm, and the two ladies separate from the group to get away from Nora’s voice. It’s really sad that they can’t see that the walk should be about Leah’s mom and not their petty fights.
