Bali – a place of reincarnation, peace, zen, and reconnection. WRONG! Bali – a place of bitches, shrieking fits, drunken antics, and whining – if you’re a member of Real Housewives of Orange County, that is!
This week the ladies remain in Bali where the drama becomes off the chain. At the center of it all is Tamra Barney! Unfortunately Tamra even managed to get in a spat with bestie Heather Dubrow when Heather called her out for making fun of Lizzie Rovsek‘s dress.
Claudia Jordan was spotted filming with Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey at the opening of Sports One in Charlotte, NC last week. “Bravo crew came out, Kenya, new girl Claudia, my wife, Kordell [Stewart]. We shot at the bar last night until 2 in the morning,” Peterrevealed. “The two new girls are extremely beautiful, so there was a lot of chemistry in the house.”
The other potential newbie is Demetria McKinney, a singer and philanthropist and serious fashion-lover of the Marlo-vein (meaning over-the-top glam and big labels). Claudia, a former Miss Rhode Island, also competed in the Miss USA pageant and presently is a DJ for DishNetwork’s Rickey Smiley Show, where coincidentally Porsha Stewart also works.
On last night’s episode of Game of Crowns, Lynne Diamante celebrates her 15th wedding by creeping everyone out with live gargoyles, Vanassa Sebastian drags some of the ladies along to her breast cancer awareness charity walk, and Leha Guilmette decides to finally bite back at the blue-haired beast that is Lynne Diamante.
We’re back at Shelley Carbone’shouse in Newport, RI, where she has just told Lynne she won’t be attending her 15th wedding vow renewal. Lynne is having a toddler meltdown while Vanassa is upstairs applying extra shellac to her face. Shelley is annoyed that Lynne is guilt-tripping her about not attending Lynne’s blessed event (which happens every year) as Lynne starts to whine and cry about her 15th wedding being a “new beginning” for her. She breaks down in some pageant tears which Vanassa describes as Oscar-worthy. Razzie-worthy, more like. Vanassa jumps on the pity party bandwagon and directs her guilt-tripping toward Lori-Ann, who promptly tells Vanassa to screw off, then walks away. I like her style.
“It is exciting that the continued success of Hollywood Exes has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” shares VH1‘s EVP Susan Levison. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the Exes brand down South was a natural evolution. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene .”
VH1 promises us “fabulousness, ambition, love, and drama.” I’m anxious to see if this show fares well. Hollywood Exes has a small – but loyal – fan base. VH1 hasn’t promoted Atlanta Exes much, but reality shows based in Atlanta usually do well, so we shall see. Atlanta Exes premieres August 18 at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1. Meet the cast and watch the extended trailer below.
We’re three episodes in on The Real Housewives of Melbourne and it’s Botox Time! Janet Roach and Jackie Gillies visit Andrea Moss’s skin spa for a touch-up on Botox. However, while Andrea is far too young for it, Janet’s bringing her along to see what the whole procedure is actually like. Andrea’s husband, the plastic surgeon, injects her and Jackie can’t believe how painful it looks. For Janet, this is as usual as getting her eyebrows waxed. Jackie is chirping in the background about how great her body is and with her European skin that she doesn’t feel like she’ll ever need it. They rehash Jackie’s convo with Gina and Jackie decides to be the bigger person and invite Gina Liano to her housewarming party.
Lydia Schiavello and Andrea shop for a housewarming gift for Jackie’s party. Lydia invites Andrea to her ski home for a chance to get away and Andrea admits she’s never been away from her family for a night. Really? With the 5 rotating nannies and all? Never? I’m having a hard time believing this. Lydia mentions that she’s inviting Jackie too and all the blood drained out of Andrea’s face. Andrea immediately asks how long this trip will be and mumbles under her breath and eye rolls that she’ll have to get nannies and what not. It appears that Andrea is not too keen on Jackie joining the gang for the weekend getaway.
Avicious Drescher is like a dog with a bone – she simply cannot stop shooting herself in her last remaining foot. Pun intended! Nor can she stop sticking that last remaining foot in her mouth.
After throwing Carole Radziwill‘s career under the bus, and throwing her leg in after, Aviva still refuses to stop “giving her side of the story” about bookgate. Last week Carole gave an interview revealing some behind-the-scenes situations on Real Housewives of New York, including more of her debate with Aviva over who actually wrote What Remains. Well of course Aviva had to chime in, which sadly only served to make herself look even worse and more delusional in the process.
Aviva claims, “I used the term ‘word on the street’ was because I wanted to protect my sources. I didn’t want to name the sources. There was somebody at Simon & Schuster, who I did name and I did tell Carole the name of that person, and I’m happy to tell you: It’s Tricia Boczkowski. I named that on-air, and it just didn’t go in. She had told me. There was somebody very, very close to John F. Kennedy Jr. — very close — who told me.”*
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey we open with the drama at the First Responsers Ball, where the pillars of RHONJ society congregated in their Partay Citay deluxe luxury couture vinyl posche-y firehoochie ensembles (basically this is like the MET Gala of Franklin Lakes, NJ, here people).
Of course not everyone was in the party mood, despite the finest quality vinyl they were wearing. Amber Marchese had her hair yanked out and her husband had his authority questioned. Jim Marchese whispers in Poison’s ear (not in the way that gets the poison flowing), that he is a “dumb f***” then walked out the door. And Poison, our jr muscle man hopped out of his chair, swimming in his fireman couture, and followed Jim to demand an apology.
Jim does not fight – he’s an attorney and an upstanding citizen who will just have you arrested. Then sued. Oh yes – Jim is a grown man who does not brawl in someone’s basement wearing a low-rent version of Kappa Kappa Gamma’s Halloween party garb. Nor does Jim exchange blows on the snow covered sidewalk of a New Jersey McMansion.
Things begin with Khloe and Kourtney playing grab ass while mocking Kim Kardashian for her Vogue Cover. Really we should be mocking Anna Wintour for her poor lapse of judgment. Maybe she was high too? Kim has a case of sour grapes because her sisters didn’t drop their lives, worship her, kiss her feet, hands and ass and come to the newsstand at 5am to purchase one of the first copies of Kim’s bible cover. Khloe taunts Kim and tells her she already has her copy and reads it while she is on the john. #ToiletMaterial
