On last night's Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller was even more psychotic than ever in light of the return of Cathy and her Candy Apples. Cathy brought some breakdancers, Jill took Melissa's place as Abby's do-girl, and Christi…well, Christi reaches her boiling point in a way I would have never imagined.
Melissa is very nervous about the pyramid because she knows Abby is mad at her and livid over the fourth place finish. In fact, Abby swoops in and stares down the dancers, telling them she wants to take a long hard look at what fourth place looks like. ALDC hasn't seen fourth place in two decades. Someone start the violins, please. She is the one who is choreographing and teaching the dances. The entirety of the blame doesn't lie on a bunch of girls in elementary school. Or am I just crazy? Sometimes it's hard to tell…
The girls will be traveling to New Jersey for this week's competition. MacKenzie is at the bottom of the pyramid, and Abby yanks her from the group dance. A tearful Maddie joins her sister, and that has to be a blow given how she's used to being on top. I really wish Abby would stop punishing these girls for their mother's bad behavior. She rubs Maddie's nose in the fact that Chloe won at Nationals. Paige's alleged "laziness" puts her on the lowest rung as well along with Nia for just being "fine." Jill is estatic to see Kendall finally off the bottom, and Abby warns Kendall that she only needs to be worried when Abby no longer cares enough to criticize her dancing abilities. How sweet. Chloe is also in the middle for not following Abby's choreography in the way Abby envisioned it should be. Poor Brooke is the only one left, and Abby laughs at the thought that she's at the top of the pyramid. Just kidding! No one takes the top spot. Brooke will be in the group routine, and Kendall gets a solo called "Owe You Nothing." Abby reminds her and her mother that she owes them nada. Nia also gets a solo. Chloe is thrilled to get the final solo, and Maddie's face drops. The group number will have hats as props, and Abby warns that if anyone drops a hat, they will be off the team.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville continues to tweet up a storm in between bashing her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his wifey LeAnn Rimes as she promotes her new book Drinking & Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders. Her book is set to hit shelves on Tuesday, February 12. Her most recent rant? She wants to set the record straight regarding rumors that she cheated on Eddie during their marriage.
Of course, then she needed to re-set the record straight when many fans and followers pointed out that she did, in fact, date before her divorce was finalized. It's like a strange conversation with herself that she broadcasts for everyone to see. I do so love some Brandi tweets though. Even when she only has 140 characters, she manages to be extremely unfiltered.
Rut roh. Bethenny Ever After's fairy tale seems to be unraveling daily as Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy face off in what was once supposed to be a quick and civil divorce…as if any of us actually believed that claim! They are at least taking a break from battling over Bryn to focus on brawling over the family's uber-expensive and enormous apartment.
It seems that Bethenny is hoppying mad about recent rumors that Jason not only wants the apartment, but he can't wait to demolish her happy place…her walk-in closet. If that isn't bad enough, Jason's plans for the closet space are enough to make the tough diva in Bethenny faint with dispair. This may be one of the funniest reality news items of the week!
Marisa's Bravo blog about Monday's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode upset Yolanda, whom Marisa calls out for being "pristine" and "perfect." While it's not exactly a scathing critique, Yolanda obviously took offense because she lambasted Marisa on twitter!
Poor Marisa, like Yolanda, seems to be having trouble adjusting to all the catty drama and perhaps it's putting her on edge at social functions. The blog issues erupted because Marisa spilled wine all over her $5,000 white dress while in Vegas.
"I thought we may finally enjoy a dinner without a fight breaking out. How naive of me to think it was possible to have a civilized dinner with these women, right?," Marisawrites.
Reality TV stars and many of Julianne's former DWTS co-stars turned out for the premiere of her new flick "Safe Haven", which is based on the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name.
Among the stars who turned out: Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Gretchen Rossi, who is apparently a close personal friend of Nicholas Sparks. Who knew? She shared on Facebook, "Super excited for the Premiere of Safe Haven tonight with my dear friend @sparksnicholas".
Oh gracious! I have to admit that I've always held a special place in my heart for Mob Wives Chicago'sNora Schweihs. Not only was she the first reality star I got to interview, but she scares the crap out of me was very gracious and promised me a bottle of The German wine. Apparently, Nora has flown the coop and left the Windy Cindy for the warmer weather of Los Angeles.
However, it seems that Nora has gotten into a bit of trouble on the West Coast, and it centers around her 23-year-old roommate Nick Gruber. Does his name sound familiar? He was Calvin Klein's little something-something for a while, but now the boy toy is allegedly fearing for his life at the hands of Nora. Yikes!
Last night on Vanderpump Rules we were treated to Stassi Schroeder's deployment of a new identity and further examples of her meteoritic dissension into crazy fameho of monstrous (monster being the operative word!) proportions.
Apparently no one at Sur ever leaves Sur. It's a vortex of incest or something and I am deeply concerned for the safety of their public restrooms. I would advise our poor Lisa Vanderpump to make STD tests mandatory among the staff. It is a matter of public health. Call the CDC, peeps! And get these souls on match.com – they need to date in the outside world!
So Stassi has left Jax Taylor for Frank. And Jax has a sit-down at the Barbie mansion-come-to-life known as Lisa's house to piteously cry about his egregious behavior in Vegas. For shame, these waxed and buffed specimens parading as menz took their shirts off and pretended to fight. That fighting was reminiscent of a New Kids On The Block video! And Jax still loooorves dear Stassi Staph Infection, but knows he must release her into the wilds.
