When reality TV friendships fall apart, all the skeletons come out of the closet and start dancing on some graves. The age-old adage, ‘Keep your friends close and enemies closer’ has never been so true than when a reality show friendship goes belly-up.
Following a tumultuous season ofReal Housewives of Orange County where friendships turned wonky, Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson have it quits. But they’re not just quietly walking away; oh no – they’re turning to the power of social media to disparage each other something awful. Twitter – ruining the lives of C-List Celebrities everywhere.
Among the mudslinging and the allegations they are both turning on each other’s significant others as well. I have to ask: Is every man in Orange County a sleaze ball loser? I’m starting to wonder based on what I see on TV!
Last night on the Real Infomercials of New Jersey the Bravo Home Shopping Network was in full-swing. I see everyone can behave when they’ve got stuff to sell! We’re not stupid, Bravo, we know this was a filler episode designed to get some swag promotion before you hit us with the heavy drama next week. Too bad most of us were too bored to pay attention.
Now there were some positives to this episode. The Gorgas and the Giudices got along and Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, dare I say it, seemed to be enjoying each other’s company and bonding! I like them getting along and I think it makes better TV. It really is time for both parties to let this feud die; it’s boring, redundant, and both sides are equally at fault.
Other positives, both Melissa and Gia had amazing performances at Beatstock. I know Melissa was lip syncing, but isn’t that standard? I mean doesn’t Britney Spears lip sync at a live performance?
Last week both Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler announced they were leaving American Idol to pursue their own careers. However, a new report claims they were actually fired in response to falling ratings – and Jennifer seeking yet another pay raise!
According to The Wrap, Jennifer who was paid $15M last season, asked for a $2M raise to return. In response, Fox said no way, declining to even make her a counter offer! As for Steven, Fox opted not to renew his contract as they are seeking new blood in the hopes of restoring the show to its former dominance in the music competition marketplace.
Ang’s husband Neil is getting a third chance, as Ang allows him to move back into her house. He hopes his wife will welcome him home with a delicious dinner. Ang is too busy being stressed by the amount of boxes he’s unloading. She and her ginormous breasts tell Neil that third time has to be the charm or he’s done for good.
At her sister’s request, Ang goes to the cardiologist. She says a lot of stuff that I think warrants subtitles. I may have picked up on the fact that she has to monitor her stool at home, and Ang is appalled about having to place her poop (my word, not hers…duh) in the mail. I hope I’m wrong. She chats with her doctor and reveals that she’s there because someone mentioned that she looked like a heart attack waiting to happen. Her doctor explains that her check-up was fine, but she really needs to quit smoking. Judging on her voice alone, he can tell that she’s a longtime smoker. Ang gets a huge kick out of this revelation and rewards him with a raspy laugh. He warns her that a heart attack or cancer will be the least of her concerns if she doesn’t quit. I think he may want her to lay off the tanning as well until I remember it’s of the spray variety.
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago was yet another party foul. These women can’t get along to save their lives, although they aren’t nearly as tough as their original counterparts. At all.
Christina Scoleri fancies herself a designer. Watch out, Project Runway! She invites Pia Rizza over to share her new creation. Christina is designing a dress for Renee Fecarotta Russo. Pia relives her altercation with Nora Schweihs while Christina can’t believe all of this drama is happening on the eve of her party. Pia is sick of people disliking her for being a stripper. She reveals to Christina that Nora also used to “dance.” Christina is floored to learn that Nora used strip, she doesn’t think she made much money. While Pia has issues with Renee, she is willing to hang out with her at Christina’s party. Christina isn’t willing to throw Nora under the bus quite yet, because Nora hasn’t done anything to her. Pia cusses up a storm. Should be a great party!
Could it be that the illustrious soon-to-be jailbird, Joe Giudice has vacated the marble and gilded encrusted manse the Giudice’s refer to as home? According to Teresa Giudice‘s former best friend Jacqueline Laurita - Joe and Teresa may be living separate lives! Maybe they’re practicing for his trip to the even bigger house?
In a new Bravo video, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star takes the liberty to spill some juicy (see what I did there?) secrets about the not so fabulicious Juicy marriage. Apparently despite Teresa‘s proclamations of true and everlasting love – and a rigorous sex life; things are anything but.
“There has been a lot of rumors out there about Joe and Teresa both leading separate lives,” Jacqueline shared. “In public they pretend like nothing is wrong, but…” Alrighty, so Jacs and Tre are really going for the jugular aren’t they? Can’t they just have a cocktail and hate on Danielle Staub some more?
After a never-ending casting speculation, filming for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is in full-swing! And the cast is already planning the annual cast trip. So where are our favorite uber-wealthy drama starters headed? Paris, of course! Cue shopping… lots of shopping. I want to seeLisa Vanderpump do some serious damage in Dior.
And because it wouldn’t be Housewives without copious drama, some ladies are sitting this one out. Namely, Taylor Armstrong. She’s been busy with other things like a ponzi scheme, but we’ll get to that in a minute. RadarOnline reports that Taylor is on the fence about attending the cast trip because she can’t afford to fly first class with the rest of the ladies.
“Taylor is still trying to decide whether or not she wants to go,” an insider reveals. “Taylor is just acting very sneaky and secretive recently. It’s almost as if she is trying to create some mystery around her.”
