As a huge fan of Big Brother – and avid follower of the uncensored live feeds – I'm sickened by the racism, misogyny, and homophobia coming from the Big Brother 15 cast this summer week. Oy. I have to repeatedly remind myself that it's only the first week.
Apparently, CBS/Big Brother has asked the houseguests to not make racial or derogatory remarks against others in the house, but that's the EXTENT of CBS/Big Brother's willingness to get involved.
Whether or not the racial slurs make it to the CBS broadcasts of Big Brother remains to be seen, but in my opinion, hiding it exacerbates the problem. My guess, CBS will pretend the racism, misogyny, and homophobia inside the Big Brother house does not exist, which is unfortunate.
Earlier this week, the former Teen Mom star announced that she was off to Florida for a 10-day kid free vacation stint in rehab for alcohol abuse. Now, Farrah has revealed a few details about the "alcohol free" restaurant she is planning to open in Texas. Perfectly timed details, of course.
"The main theme and purpose of why I'm making this restaurant is really the community involvement," saidFarrah the Humanitarian. "It's called DDs."
And Heather does not condone drama among zillion dollar wedding gowns, pulling focus away from TAMRA'S DAY or lying about your professed acting gigs. So not kosher! Fancy Pants calls out several of the ladies of RHOC for forgetting their manners and for having trouble with the truth.
Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."
SoTamra Barney is once again on the warpath where Gretchen Rossi is concerned. Who is she going to phone at the reunion this year? Did she take the friendship bracelet back?
Of course Gretchen may not deserve Tamra's friendship after all the lies and manipulations she's been attempting to dish out this season, which is exactly what Tamra takes issue with in her latest Real Housewives of Orange County blog!
Tamrawrites aboutGretchen's ever-changing truths and point-blank calls her a liar with regard to Alexis Bellino being invited dress shopping and her alleged role on Malibu Country. Tamra also wonders about why Gretchen was so desperate for attention she tried to make bridal shopping all about her. Ummm… maybe because Gretch was supposed to get that wedding spinoff first?
It seems like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are constantly in the media for feuding or cookbooks or club promotions, so today we thought we'd send some love to Real Housewives of New Jersey'sKathy Wakile. Granted, it's not as exciting or dramatic as anything her co-stars are usually stirring up, but sometimes we need a little calm in our lives, right?
Speaking to Parade, Kathy dishes on life with the Bravo cameras and how she's tried to maintain balance with her family, her new business opportunities, and the all encompassing world of reality television.
Kathy has tried hard to make sure her kids don't listen to the haters, saying, “Sometimes it gets to you when people feel they are entitled to negatively judge you based on what they see on TV. My husband and I always discuss these things with our kids and try to reinforce what they know to be true about our family and not respond to ‘critics’ who don’t know the whole story. At the end of the day, we are each others foundation and stability, and that will never change. Our mantra is: ‘Don’t let other people’s perception change your reality.’”
