You know, I am not sure I'll ever get a handle on Real Housewives of New York'sAviva Drescher. When she first joined the cast, I thought she was quiet and would likely stay in the background (a first for the Bravo franchise, I believed at the time). Then she became a ball full of phobias. Next, Aviva decided that she'd found her voice, and she promptly used it, fiercely, on anyone who would listen. And don't even get me started about her dad.
Now, Aviva is promoting her new book and the upcoming season of RHONY (I mean, is there really any point in them coming back at this point?). She's teasing that there will be craziness, and she even compares the franchise to that of Real Housewives of Atlanta and RHONJ. In the words of the great Cher Horowitz…As if!
Well, well, well. What a funny turn of event, huh Nostrils? Last season, none of the viewers wanted Basketball Wives to return, but Shaunie O'Neal and her puppets friends were dead set on proving to us all that they'd changed…and for the better, y'all!
Now, the women are back with more tears, minimal violence (so far), and, ironically enough, no desire to continue doing the show. Not only has Tami Romanhinted that she won't be returning for season six (if there is one), but now Evelyn Lozada is trying to distance herself from BBW and its antics (most of which, I must point out, have been hers).
Bethenny dives right in, asking Melissa what the whole "treat your man like a king theory" means to her. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star says, "If you treat your man like the king, you will be his queen. If he's happy, if he's satisfied, he feels like he's got everything he needs. It's not just about happy in the bedroom, it's about respect, honesty, treating him like he runs the show but yet I'm really runnin' the show."
She continues, "It's about loyalty, it's about complimenting him, he compliments me back."
It pays to have connections! Lisa Hochstein chipped her tooth at 1 a.m. and thankfully she has friends in all the right places – Karent Sierra DDS to the rescue.
Lisa chipped the tooth at her friend Carrie's birthday celebration and her former Real Housewives of Miami co-star Karent took the emergency call, offering to meet Lisa at her office. Lisa shared Tweets and photos of the traumatic morning, "@karentsierra and I at 1 am in her office fixing my chipped tooth. I don't follow instructions well lol #acid #dentist #drkarentsierra this should be on #rhom. Came to my rescue at 1am! #loveher #goodfriend best #dentist ever".
Karent fixed her up and was glad to see Lisa's "hillbilly smile" gone. "Happy to have been able to take care of my friend @lisahochstein #dentistsaregoodfriendstohave. Looking fabulous Miss Lisa! No more hillbilly smile @lisahochstein #smile #teeth #emergencydentist #dentalspa". (How many hashtags can they cram in one Tweet?)
This is why it's important to never burn those reality TV bridges, ladies!
When Melissa Gorga "wrote" (as in scrawled with pink glitter pen in her trusty Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper) her book Love Italian Styleabout keeping your marriage to a poison-shrouded mini oaf hot and sexy, she had no idea that some of her very traditional, shall we say, advice may be called out as disrespectful. I mean it works for Melissa right – she gets to keep POISON! GAAAAAAG
Among the beliefs Melissa espouses, one central theme is: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to dominate." That is a direct quote from her book. And husbands want to dominate in all aspects of the marriage – from sex, to the home, their wife's wardrobe!
