Eight long years ago – yes 8 – Vicki Gunvalson first appeared in our living rooms through our television screen. It was a sad day for mankind because it was also around that time that Slave Smiley first graced us with his presence!
Real Housewives of Orange County started the phenomenon that has become a monster in its own right. Tonight the OG of the franchise celebrates the season 8 premiere and through this season the show will reach it's 100th episode!
For Vicki, she felt a responsibility to both viewers and the franchise to continue with the show even when it captured some not-so flattering moments, like her marital difficulties. Vicki and Donn Gunvalson have still not settled their pending divorce.
"I have a sense of responsibility," Vickiexplains to The Huffington Post. "I would've been (bleeping) at myself if I backed out of season five or six and saw the success of the franchise keep going, and I elected to pull back because I couldn't handle it anymore. There's nothing I can't handle. I just have to figure out a way not to crumble when times get tough when I'm doing this."
Just a few minutes ago Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) announced that she and fiance Jionni LaValle have secretly tied the knot.
Snooki writes, "Jionni and I eloped!!! Here's a pic of the magical day!". Snooki included a shot of what might have been their secret wedding ceremony.
I immediately want to believe the former Jersey Shore star because they seem like the type of couple who would rather have a "normal" media-free wedding day, but there's a part of me that's a little cautious today since it IS April Fool's Day.
What do you think? Is Snooki pulling a prank? Or is she purposely announcing it today to make us wonder if it's the real deal or not?
UPDATED: Snooki shared tonight: "APRIL FOOLS ya freaks!! My ass is gonna have a huge wedding lets be serious!! lololol". So there we go….
Yolanda maintains that Kim was a mess in Paris and "upset with Kyle Richards" at the airport so Yolanda was helping Kim. Kim admits to taking the wrong medication and suffering from seizures during that same trip. All-in-all, I would say it was a vacation I'm glad I wasn't on.
Resurrecting the reunion drama in her Bravo Blog, Kim believes Yolanda is "trying to make her look bad" because they weren't able to clear up meeting for the master cleanse at Yolanda's house. "Yolanda and I NEVER made plans! She did NOT call me, and I did NOT call her after Ojai! There were no messages left on her machine, and there were none left on mine! No emails were exchanged!" Kim insists.
Last week, Kari, Toya, and Quad's drama ruined Mariah's birthday party. Now, Mariah hosts a Doctors on the Dock party, and she hopes that the other ladies are able to act like proper doctor's wives in the presence of their doctor husbands. The party starts well. Then, Quad shows up, and she proves that she doesn't have a refined bone in her body. Mariah's little pet is out of control.
Quad arrives late, which the other wives find to be tacky, and then she greets everyone but Toya. Quad says Toya can "catch fire and go to hell" and turns her attention to Kari. Acting innocent, Quad asks Kari if she or her husband were ever married to other people, and Kari admits that she met Duncan while he was still married to his first wife. DUN-DUN-DUUUUN!!!
Shain and his uncle, David Gandee, were last seen leaving a local bar around 3 a.m. Sunday morning, with plans to go off-roading, and were later reported missing by family. Shain and David's bodies – along with a third unidentified victim – were found inside of Shain's Ford Bronco this morning in Sissonville, West Virginia. Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper has confirmed the news.
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would say it was a little sweet and a little classy, but it wasn't. It was mostly a lotta ratchet.
See Kenya Moore threw the big end of the season party. And at Kenya's party she wants things her way – or the highway. Well, parking lot at least. Kenya decided her Atlanta "coming out" event would be an Iconic Black Women In Film gala. She assigned all the ladies of RHOA a character because there was to be some sort of performance associated with the role. The only performing I saw was a low-budget runway show in which they all waltzed up on stage did a couple hip pops and sat back down on a folding chair in the audience. Apparently that's how Krayonce defines a play though cause she was two shades of bent out of bootyshape about Porsha Stewart coming in the wrong costume.
Since none of the RHONJ husbands have jobs they have a lot of time on their hands to go around getting in fist fights and camerawhoring. Apparently over the weekend there was an event to celebrate the opening of Kim D's newest boutique, Posche 2. It's a boutique downstairs and a hair salon upstairs.
Attending the event were some friends of Kim's who are known to cause much, much drama and be anything but fans of Melissa Gorga. RHONJ twitter users are very familiar with them…
