When E! News caught up with Adriana over the weekend, she made it clear she is not a fan of the latest season of the NYC Housewives. The reason? Because it is Bethenny-less.
“Bethenny Frankel was my favorite,” said Adriana to E! at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. “I don’t think it’s the same without her. I think it’s a bunch of matronly women trying to look hot,” added the pot.
The topic then turned back to her own franchise and whether or not a second season is underway, or whether the show would be getting the axe a la the Real Housewives of DC.
“We can’t officially say it yet, but I’m pretty sure…I’m pretty confident…,” said Adriana with a smile about the possibility of a second season. She also added that she signed a six-year contract with NBC (NBC Universal owns Bravo). Oddly enough, some of the DC Housewives were also confident their show would be returning and well, we all know how that turned out.
It will definitely be interesting to see what Bravo decides to do with the Miami ladies. We’re thinking a cast overhaul might help breathe some needed new life into the otherwise stale series.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ADRIANA’S COMMENTS? DOES THE RHONY SUCK WITHOUT BETHENNY? SHOULD BRAVO BRING BACK THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI? WHAT CHANGES WOULD YOU MAKE TO THE RHOM CAST?
Are they or aren’t they? This seems to be the question concerning two-time BachelorBrad Womack, 38, who proposed to Emily Maynard, 25, in what was touted the most dramatic Bachelor proposal ever.
The couple has admittedly had several ups and downs, including a break-up which occurred before the pair appeared on ABC’s After the Final Rose, a night that ABC had hoped would be their actual wedding ceremony. It seems the network is hoping for another Bachelor “happily ever after” story, which are the glaring minority when it comes to the marriage (heck, even just relationship longevity) success rate of past seasons. Just last week, we reported that ABC was insisting suggesting the couple stay together and work on their relationship. It appears that ABC has gotten its wish.
The couple has not been photographed together in weeks, and most media outlets who reported the couple called it quits mid April had given up entirely on a reconciliation. However, Emily’s mother Susan Maynard, in an interview with People.com, reveals that all of the speculation is difficult to stomach. She tells People, “They have not officially broken up. It’s still kind of on and off.” Susan continues, “I hear nothing but good things about Brad. They are still just trying to get to know each other…My ex husband has met him and thinks he’s a very, very nice guy.”
And when asked about her granddaughter? Emily’s mother states that “[Little] Ricki seems to like him.” While I agree that this is all well and good, there is something a bit fishy about the fact that Emily’s mother has yet to meet Brad. I am not questioning the closeness between mother and daughter, as Susan had plans with her daughter and granddaughter for Easter weekend, but shouldn’t she have met her future-son-in-law by now? Susan Maynard does believe that both her daughter and Womack have the right intentions, but admits that she knows of no plans to uproot Ricki from her life in North Carolina to move to Texas.
The couple, who have been absent in paparazzi circles as of late, was spotted this past weekend getting cozy in Brad’s native Austin, Texas. Witnesses have given accounts to Us Magazine claiming the couple was seen Friday at Kona Grill and Saturday at Fado, a bar within walking distance of Brad’s condo. It is reported that both nights the pair looked happy, comfortable and at-ease with each other, even smiling and holding hands while posing for photographs with fans. In fact, Brad’s former girlfriend (yet another one?) from nine years ago (again, nine years?), Dayla Burkett, tells Us that she believes that Emily and Brad have what it takes to make their relationship work. She tells the magazine, “We speak all the time and he is a dear friend. Brad is a good guy and he is madly in love with Emily.”
It looks as though the couple is trying to work on their issues and strengthen their relationship. I am certain that things will work out the way they should, and I will refrain from adding my two cents. But I would love to know…what do you think about Brad and Emily rekindling the flame?
On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Christmas was celebrated, Skating With the Stars finally came to an end, and Skinnygirl reached the first stop on its big bus tour.
Bethenny starts out the day doing something millions of moms wish they could do: have their “Coordinator of Chaos”, Julie deal with the baby while they sleep in. Aaaahhh… lifestyles of the Bravo funded reality stars: Malibu lives on Downtown LA budgets. Immediately after hopping out of bed Bethenny pimps her new Skinnygirl Shapewear line by showing off her fake Kim Kardashian butt and prancing around the living room bending over and sticking out her prosthetic booty in front of her sexually harassed skating partner Ethan Burgess and poor, abused Julie and Dawa. Bethenny decides she’s to going hide how much weight she lost skating by pretending she earned her juicy booty the hard way by, you know, eating something instead of pulling on a pair of padded panties. When husband Jason Hoppy arrives, he’s not sure which is more exciting: the beach house or her new butt (which he totally believed appeared overnight??), until Bethenny burst his bubble by letting him know it was just another product placement for a Skinnygirl line she’s hawking and that sadly he’s stuck with her real butt. Oh well, better luck next time J!

It was a busy Monday night on Dancing With The Stars as the stars not only had to do their regular dances, but also a group number. Add in an extra guest judge in the form of undefeated world professional Latin dance champion Donnie Burns, and it was a night of suspense!
Following weeks of being in the middle of the pack, actor Ralph Macchiobroke away last night. Ralph found his dancing mojo and tied for first place with a score of 36 for his sharp quickstep with partner Karina Smirnoff. The pair received major praises from the judges. “Once you are in the zone, you sell it like no one else can,” said judge Bruno Tonioli. With a score of 30 for their group number, Ralph and Karina finished the night with a total score of 66.
Also tying for first place with a score of 36 is NFL player Hines Ward, who continues to show he is a front runner in the competition. With the group number factored in, Hines also scored a total of 66 for the night.
Tying for last place were Kirstie Alley and Romeo, both receiving a total score of 60 for the night. Kirstie continues to struggle and even had a minor breakdown during one of her rehearsals with partner MaksimChmerkovskiy. Kirstie 60, broke down in tears when Maksim told her to “stop talking” during a practice. “I need a break!” snapped Kirstie. “You scream and jump around and I’m frustrated.”
The duo however quickly made up and even ended their lively jive dance with a spontaneous kiss.
Below is the leaderboard. In parentheses are the total scores from last night including the group number -
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 36 (66)
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 36 (66)
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 34 (64)
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 31 (61)
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 30 (60)
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 30 (60)
And tonight, another star will be sent packing. So the question is…
Sunday night’s Real Housewives of the O.C. focused on Peggy and Micah’s dinner party and w(h)ine pairings. Tamra and Vicki added a new “mean girl” to their clique in the form of Donn, Gretchen dodged digs aimed at an absent Slade, Alexis spent the evening crying (and lying!), while Peggy sat back and wondered why her dinner party was so full of drama. (Peggy, here’s a hint– check out your guest list).
The episode begins with delicious looking food preparation. Oh look! It’s Mary Sue Milliken of this season’s Top Chef Masters! Subtle, Bravo. Peggy Tanous and her husband Micah are diligently watching over the people who are actually setting up and decorating for their dinner party. The two spend a lot of time name-dropping high end clothing, watches, and cars while getting ready together.
Slade Smiley’s child support woes have just become headlines in the O.C. (I had to remind myself that it was filmed several months ago), and Gretchen has given up her usual grating laugh for near tears as she explains the “real story” to her hairdresser. Not surprisingly we discover that Slade won’t be attending the dinner because he’ll be at home painting naked spending time with his children.

First Kelly celebrated with a party at the TAO Nightclub at the Venetian on Thursday and then with a pool party the next day at the Tao Beach in Las Vegas, Nevada. The mom of two, who posed for Playboy over a year ago, showed off her crazy toned bikini body while sporting a purple print two-piece! More bikini photos of Kelly below.
In other news, Bethenny Frankeltook to her Bravo blog last week and made some comments about her former nanny Gina, who quit on the most recent episode to focus on her health. In her blog post, Bethenny also talks new nanny Dawa and gives an update on Gina’s health. Excerpts from Bethenny’s blog is below -
“There’s a new nanny in town, and she brings peace to my home. Dawa, as we both identically pronounced, is the opposite of Gina. She is quiet, shy, respectful, a light eater, and she never talks on the phone nor does she watch TV.
I love me some Gina, and her health is good now by the way, but we needed to transition into a mellow nanny. Most importantly, Dawa, like Gina, loves my baby Bryn and everything is going smoothly. Feeling comfortable with child care is peace of mind.
I’m very organized, or try to be. In the home, and with a baby, that is next to impossible. Nevertheless, I keep trying. Dawa being able to blow dry my hair is an extra added bonus. Truthfully, I’ve only had her do it twice. My hair is usually in a ponytail or a clip. It’s good to know she’s there in a pinch.”
Last night’s episode of Mob Wives was, again, about how life when you are part of the “the underworld” isn’t just about the glitz and the glamor, as Renee Graziano’s ex-husband (who is also her son AJ’s father) was arrested in a major FBI bust. Drita D’avanzo had more concerns about her husband’s sentence, and Karen Gravano began coming to terms with and exploring her feelings about her upbringing. Carla Faccilo was, as Nene Leakes likes to say: “Casper the Ghost” this episode because, yeah she was practically invisible. What an emotional episode this was – highs and lows galore, a total emotional roller coaster. As my mother said: “I feel like I need an anti-depressant after watching these broads.” Snark obviously runs in our family.
There was a lot of build up in the first part of the show until we finally got to the part all the previews were throwing in our faces: the FBI arrests! I waited on the edge of my seat for the juicy part and, yeah… it was pretty much a let down. The most we got to see of any FBI action was Renee crying in her kitchen about the arrests and the ladies showing CNN news footage. Foiled again by the infamous preview hype! It was nice that there was a significantly fewer number of bleeps so we could actually understand what they were saying to each other, though.

Just like that, the sixth season of the Bad Girls Club is over with the first part of the reunion airing tonight.
Perez Hilton returns as host of the “Bad Girls Club Reunion Special,” to once again take the reigns as the feisty females return to Los Angeles to dish on the drama and gossip from their season. The first part of the two-part reunion special airs on Oxygen at 9/8c with the second part airing next Monday, May 9 at 9/8c.
“I’m back! I may be nicer, but the girls are just as bad as ever! And it takes a real lady, like me, to keep them all in check at the reunion special! You won’t wanna miss it!” said Perez Hilton. “Oh, and tune in to see what I did that makes Tanisha wanna hurt me – badly – for real!”
Throughout this season, the house had been divided between Char’s minions and Nikki & Lauren. However, towards the end of the season, those alliances started to crumble. Have tensions eased since the girls have been away? Is anyone still speaking to Nikki? And what did Perez do to make Tanisha Thomas so mad? All those questions will be answered in the special two-part reunion.
Meanwhile, casting for season eight of “Bad Girls Club” is currently underway while Oxygen will give viewers a sneak peak of season seven — “Bad Girls Club: New Orleans” during the second part of reunion on May 9. Bad Girls Club: New Orleans is set to debut this summer on Oxygen.
A preview clip of tonight’s reunion is below!
