Game of Crowns cast

This week’s Game of Crowns brings us to the main event itself: “Legends of the Crown.” Legends is a pageant in which only previously-crowned beauty queens can compete. Since last week’s restraining order was issued (by Leha Guilmette to Lynne Diamante) the question now is who can compete against whom and…who’s gonna get arrested? Let’s see, shall we.

We begin at Lori-Ann Marchese’s house one day before the pageant where she’s prepping with the following mantra: tone it, tan it, strut it. Her husband is brushing bottled bronzer all over her in solidarity. She’s sick of the other ladies’ advice to “tone it down” in competitions, so this time Lori-Ann is bringing her true (orange) self to the stage. Woot woot!

In a boxing ring in RI, Leha is unleashing her pent up rage by working out with a coach. Picturing Lynne’s face each time she punches him helps Leha stay fit and pageant-ready. Leha reminds us that Lynne has messed with her for the last time and she’s hitting back now.

On this week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy, it’s a beautiful morning for the Biermann Family! Kim Zolciak lets us know that she loves the sound of the FedEx delivery truck (aka Santa Claus) as they can only mean posh, luxurious gifts waiting for her to devour. After ripping through her usual order of Louis Vuitton bags and what not, she opens up some odd items that Kroy has ordered.  Solar showers and female urinals among them and oh, crap! Kim forgot she promised Kroy Biermann she would go camping in exchange for her high-end shopping spree earlier that month.

She tries to bail on the trip when she finds Kroy in the basement getting organized and ready to go for a fun time in the wilderness. Kroy wants her to unplug for a bit and detach from her hectic life and enjoy the great outdoors for a few days.  Kim is all, “Ugh!! Fine!”.

victoria gotti stirs up trouble on rhonj

It makes me feel warm inside that despite all the cast changes, Real Housewives Of New Jersey hasn’t given up the sleaze factor. I’m not sure if they reached a new low last night or not, but whatever – it keeps us on our toes right?!

The big drama is that Victoria Gotti, mentoress in all things badly-behaving criminal husband to our beloved Teresa Giudice, showed up and oh boy did she have some secrets stashed under that Barbie weave.  (Kim D collection, y’all! Actually Kim gets her weaves from the VG Collection – real hair, scalped by the finest Italian mobsters in all the land!)

It turns out that Victoria has known Rino, husband of one Teressssssssssssa Aprea for quite some time. It turns out Rino used to have a thing for Victoria. It turns out Rino has a thing for older ladies of a certain Mrs. Robinson persuasion. More on that later…

Nene-leakes-ice-bucket

You can always count on NeNe Leakes to go outside the box and when the Real Housewives of Atlanta star took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge she put her own spin on it.

Wearing a wet suit, scuba mask and flippers, NeNe took the challenge that is sweeping the nation. The whole idea is that when challenged, you have 24 hours to either make a $100 donation to alsa.org or you get a bucket of ice water dumped on your head. But almost everyone is doing both the donating and the dumping and with a huge celebrity push, this has become one of the most successful fundraisers ever.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner need to go back to hanging out with Jaden Smith! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars have been spotted recently with convicted woman-beater Chris Brown and d-bag of the decade Justin Bieber.

Well now those new friends are not only making us question where Kris Jenner would draw the line with her youngest kids and their choice of friends, but it is also putting them in danger.

2014 MTV Video Music Awards

Last night Kim Kardashian was at the VMAs sans her musical genius husband Kanye West.  Kim attended with her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and she also came on stage to introduce Sam Smith’s performance.  Did anyone watch the VMAs? They had SNL’s Jay Pharaoh on the show, doing bits pretending to be Jay Z. and then Kanye.  Kendall and Kylie were in hysterics and Kim was smiling blankly at the camera and looking at her sisters like “Whaaat did he say? Should I be laughing?”  I added the video below.

Also airing this week are the Emmy Awards.  DWTS pro dancer Cheryl Burke was in attendance at one of the many, many parties held this weekend, as well as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Lisa Rinna

Lisa’s RHOBH co-star Brandi Glanville was snapped over the weekend as she hit up Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood.  Also enjoying some weekend fun: Gigi Hadid, Aviva Drescher, Kristen Doute and many more!

nicole napolitano forgives amber marchese... for now!

Immediately after joining The Real Housewives of New Jersey, one half of twin-trouble Nicole Napolitano has found herself in the center of drama.

It all started when Amber Marchese made a comment about Nicole allegedly breaking up a marriage, which Melissa Gorga repeated… to Nicole! Of course some hair pulling and back stabbing occurred. But this week, Amber and Nicole finally made peace and it seemed like things were moving forward in a positive direction. Or will they?

“It was great to finally get an apology. Going back to that night and remembering how I felt, it was a really good feeling to forgive and let go. I truly feel what I said in my interview: ‘Bitterness is leprosy to the soul,'” Nicole recalls. “At this point weeks had gone on with a lot of hurt , lies, and deceit, and with all the anger that I had towards Amber also came deep hurt.”
