"Mostly, they bum around Los Angeles sleeping with each other’s partners, drinking too much and squabbling endlessly, but at the end of the day, they’re all just lost kids with failed dreams who work in the service industry and happen to be trailed by a production crew."
This line is from a recent Time article, and may I say that it's pure genius and totally accurate. That's right, we're getting high-brow up in here! The piece is on the crew from Vanderpump Rules and seeks to explain viewers' fascination with mean girl Stassi Schroeder, man whore Jax Taylor, and the rest of Lisa Vanderpump's attractive SUR minions. It's certainly my guilty pleasure and last night's finale was everything I hoped for and more!
You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and there you have…a day in the life of Kim Kardashian? It takes a lot out of this poor gal to wear crop tops and change her hair color, but she's learned to take the good with the bad.
For example, Kim finally had a spot of good luck when her teenaged identity thief was brought to justice, but, on the flip side, it turns out that the rumor she was posing for the cover of Vogue was just that…a rumor. Add that together with the fact that she decide whether she has more fun as a blonde, and it's already quite a week for Miss Kimmie.
Don't fail us Mo'Nique! We've been through enough piddly hosts, so I hope she's able to hold her own with the crazy crew of Love & Hip Hop! Last night was the first half of the reunion, and Mo'Nique started with a long-winded monolog about adventures and riveting stories. Yeah, not so much. Forget about the story lines, lets talk hair! I can't decide if Yandy Smith looks like a fabulous pin-up or if she's been playing in Hugh Hefner's closet. I never thought I'd want Tara Wallace to put back on the blonde wig–I know many will disagree with me, but that pixie cut isn't doing her any favors..not to mention that dress looks like a surfer's rash guard! She's a gorgeous lady, and that hairstyle makes her look mousy. Tahiry Jose's hair looks amazing in the blunt ombre'd bob.Joe Buddenis dressed like my best friend's five-year-old on Easter Sunday.
Okay, now onto the reunion! Yandy reveals that she talks to Mendeecees Harris on the phone about five times a day. Mo'Nique warns that those collect calls can get expensive! Do inmates really get that many phone privileges? We are treated to anErica Mena/Cyn make-out montage. We get, VH1, they're lesbians! Sure they are. The pair is still together (thanks to Chipotle!) as they are holding hands on the sofa. Rich Dollaz' jealousy is well documented in clips, and he looks just as stupid as I remember. Rich joins the twosome on the sofa, and he tells Mo'Nique that he didn't have any loyalty to Cyn in her relationship with Erica, and he's a self-proclaimed creep. He feels sorry for Cyn because he thinks she's a prop in his back-and-forth with Erica.
If you think Bravo will shy away from showing the trials and tribulations of Teresa Giudice's federal fraud case in the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, guess again. Andy Cohen opened up about Teresa, Taylor and all things reality TV in a new interview with TV Guide. He swears the Housewives franchise will be around for a long time to come.
First, Andy talked about what it's like no longer being an big wig executive at Bravo, "I believe it was January 3 when I woke up and for the first time in my life I didn't have a boss. So it's great. I'm continuing to host specials for Bravo, which I love doing. And I'm still an executive producer of all the Real Housewives shows."
When asked if it's because nobody else wanted that job, he shared, "No, quite the contrary! I wanted to and I believe that this franchise can go and go and go if we treat it delicately and properly. We're seeing with Real Housewives of Atlanta record numbers of any season ever. I care about it a lot."
Joyce was doing a photoshoot for an upcoming issue of the digital magazine Naluda. I've never heard of the mag, but it's described as "a free, fresh monthly publication covering topics on lifestyle, fashion, travel, social events and activities, at Naluda we aim to provide our readers the most interesting, useful and up to date information."
Joyce Tweeted about her day of shooting, which featured this see through dress/skirt and black sequined bustier. "It's a wrap! @naludamagazine @paulanthonylove @thestyleguide @lafashionweek I loved today! The team was simply amazing can't wait to see the pics." You can see more pictures of her day below.
During an appearance on WWHL, a caller asked Lisa if she thinks she mothers Brandi like she does the Sur staff. Lisa confessed, "Guilty as charged. Absolutely. I do feel Brandi was struggling and I really wanted to help her because I loved her."
Andy asked Lisa if she knew it was bugging Brandi, "I did eventually. That's why I kind of backed off because I thought I was damned either way. But I did really care about her."
Lisa Vanderpump and Jax Taylor were Andy's guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. Jax shared that this was his first time watching the explosive season finale of Vanderpump Rules and he finally feels some remorse for sleeping with his best friend's girl.
Lisa shared her take on tonight's episode, "I found it so disconcerting. I'm so upset with him still. " Andy asks if there's anything that he did or said that irritated her on tonight's episode, "Everything he said really pissed me off but the one thing is when he said 'you came twice sweetheart' to Kristen." Lisa proceeded to smash a breakaway bottle over Jax's head (Andy provided her with a box of them..). "No remorse. That's what I'm saying."
Jax shared that he DOES feel bad NOW. "We watched the episode together and after seeing it and watching myself on there, it was hard to watch. I really feel like a piece of shit."
