We haven't met her yet, but Lydia McLaughlin will appear on the show next week as the fabulously rich Christian business woman and mother who is all Alexis Bellino wishes she could be. Shockingly Lydia is actually a friend of Alexis' and joined the show in part through that relationship. Well that just blows the lid of Heather Dubrow's theory that Alexis is searingly jealous of her lifestyle, amirite.
Lydia recently did an interview with U-T San Diego where she talked her decision to join the show, who she didn't really like, and what we can expect from her this season.
Last night's Duck Dynasty was rather risque for Robertson standards. There was bathroom humor, shrinkage concerns, and Miss Kay got super sassy talking about the birds and the bees. Willie fancied himself an action hero, while Jase took great pleasure in ribbing his brother. Si has never been colder than he was in 'Nam, and Phil just shook his head at the insanity of it all. Good times, for sure!
Willie and Jase are touring a giant Bass Pro Shop after being offered a large space to sell their Duck Commander products. While Willie is trying to work on a deal, Jase is hoping to score free stuff and tossing out horrible neon laden ideas. Is it just me, or is Jase a Si in training? The guys decide that a blown up photograph of the Robertson boys is just what the space needs.
At the warehouse, Martin and Godwin are playing Go Fish (don't they know that it's super hard to play that with just two people?) and Si is watching Jep play Donkey Kong on a Gameboy. Jase wonders why the boys are being so old school with their game choices, but Si reminds him that the simplest of games are the most fun…Kick the Can, horseshoes, lawn darts–if you are fortunate enough to actually survive a game of deadly lawn darts! Willie arrives and shares the news that the boys will be doing a photo shoot for their Bass Pro Shop space. After major eyerolling from Jase, Jep offers to take the pictures so he can 1) test out his new camera; and 2) avoid being memorialized forever in whatever craziness Willie has in mind. The photo session is set for Saturday–oh, wait…Jep isn't available on Saturday. He has his dodge ball league play-offs. Si likes the sound of that. He loves the idea of the duck, dive, and jive!
Johnny reportedly made fun of Jacqueline's autistic son Nicholas (a charge he vehemently denies on twitter) which led to the incident. Witnesses tell the NJ Patch that the fight was very nasty.
"It was a huge brawl. Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken," salon owner Jennifer Dunn confirms. "There was blood on the walls." Jennifer also reveals that one of the men threw a sink during the incident. Undaunted Bravo cameras continued rolling the entire time!
Kandi Burruss has been working on The Kandi Factory for what seems like ages. Her show will follow the singer/songwriter/reality star as she mentors up and coming artists who are recording their first single and creating their own music video. It seems very fitting. Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks is also getting her own show…and she's basically Atlanta's answer to Judge Judy. Also fitting.
Who should feel the need to weigh in on Phaedra's new series? Why it's none other than fomer (booted) Atlanta housewifeSheree Whitfield!
There has been a lot of rumors swirling around the upcoming season, and filming has already been pushed back once to address casting concerns. Now that the RHONY cameras start rolling in a few weeks with a projected summer premiere, many are starting to buzz about just who will make the final cut.
Being a member of the the famous Jenner-Kardashian family may have its perks, but Kendall Jenner shares that the fame has its downside, too. She dishes with the new issue of Cosmopolitan about privacy and her future plans.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star says that the toughest part for her is not getting a chance to experience the teen years in a normal way. “The show brought us everything we have, and I realize that, but sometimes I just want to be left alone and be a normal kid for like five minutes. That’s tough when the paparazzi are chasing you.”
As we were flipping through all of tonight's photos from the Bravo upfront presentations, we noticed something missing: Joanna Krupa's engagement ring!
Joanna and Romain Zago have been on and off, but last we heard the engagement was back on. Romain is with her in NYC this week, so they're obviously still together.
There are more photos below of Joanna out and about in NYC this afternoon – again with no ring. She was also not wearing it at an event last night. The last photo we can find where she's sporting her rock is back at the beginning of March.
