Last night's Mob Wives was a lot more tricks than treats as friendships were tested and costumes were thrown by the wayside. Who needs to be dressed up as an actual person or thing when you can throw on black angel wings, red contact lenses, and a lace thong?
At Big Ang's house, Renee Graziano stops in share her recent showdown with Alicia diMichele Garofalo. Renee thinks that Alicia has been as fake as can be since the get-go. Meanwhile, in Philly, Alicia is telling her side of the story to Natalie Guercio. Renee's side of the story is much more dramatic than the actual event, but she tries to explain to Ang that there has always been something about Alicia she's disliked. Doesn't she understand that you don't throw around the term "rat"? Ang hopes that Alicia can learn to filter through all the gossip she hears.
Natalie has invited Alicia, Ang, and Drita D'avanzo to go to the pumpkin patch in preparation for Halloween. The women are scaring themselves silly in a haunted corn field. It's all in a day's work for Natalie since she works in a funeral home. Really it's just a bunch of fake dead bodies sprawled around everywhere. I could have also gone without with Natalie and Ang's sex ed lesson with gourds. Natalie invites the ladies to a Halloween party at her funeral home. She's going to set up a bar in an actual casket. "That's so cute" squeals Drita until she finds out the location. Natalie wonders if she should invite Renee, and Alicia believes that it's good for her friend to be the bigger person.
Sometimes I feel sorry for VH1. It tries, it really does. The networks problem is saturation. One reality series is going well? Let's copy it in film a franchise in every state! These basketball players' wives are causing major drama and enticing viewers? Let's find more basketball wives? Wait, there aren't any? Well, that's okay! Let's find some women who maybe dated, had a baby with, or got an autograph from an NBA player. That's the same, right?
You know where I'm going with this, don't you? It's time to welcome back the women of Basketball Wives: L.A. to our televisions! It seems like they've been gone forever…and I haven't really missed them, to be honest. We'll see some new of our old favorites (is Draya Michele's new beau dating Jackie Christie's daughter too?), and some new faces who are already fitting right in. One of the new ladies has an online business with an "F" rating from the Better Business Bureau! Sounds about right!
Oh please let this be true…please, please, please! It would be so amazing to see this come to fruition. I always knew that Bethenny Frankel had a secret type, and I was right! She's totally into douchey frat daddies who are still puffing their chests and doing keg stands a decade after they graduated from college. They are a fascinating breed, but don't get too close. They are prone to STDs and using more hair product than any woman I know!
And Bethenny is in love with one! Yes! She wants to shout it from the rooftops, no doubt, wearing a string bikini and one of those weird bejeweled belly necklace situations. Epic.
While many of us were not surprised to hear that Ramona Singer filed for divorce, most of us were shocked she finally recognized that her marriage to Mario Singer was less than perfect!
Cheating rumors have engulfed the Real Housewives of New York stars for years but after Mario was caught sending naked selfies to a socialite this summer (a socialite he is still rumored to be dating) Ramona finally saw the writing on the wall. After months of pretending everything was fine, Pinot looked down into her bottomless glass of pinot and decided enough was enough so she kicked Mario out!
It was with heavy heart that Ramona went through with filing for divorce. And the final nail in the coffin was when she caught Mario in a secret rendevous with his girlfriend this weekend in their Hampton's home. "She did not want a divorce. Ramona loves her life. She loves Mario," a source reveals to People.
The former teen bride has separated from Doug Hutchison, moved out, and is now getting her own solo show to go with it! “She moved into the studio apartment next door to the house she and Doug rented together. But Doug still lives in the main house,” a source dished to Celebuzz. “They’re not divorced yet, so she’ll stay there until they figure out how they want to proceed with things.”
In the meantime, Courtney is busy revitalizing her "career" – and that includes more music! “She has a development deal with World of Wonder Productions,” says a source and is in the "beginning stages" of creating her own reality show. “Courtney’s working on multiple on-camera projects, one of which is her own show. And she’s being pitched to networks." WoW Productions is also behind Million Dollar Listing, Tori & Dean: Inn Love and RuPaul’s Drag Race.
I hope Tamar Braxton's hit Love & War is raking in the dough because otherwise she'll be singing a tune of Love & Debt!
The IRS is demanding that her husband Vince Herbert pay up 3,325,107.70 in back taxes.
According to documents uncovered by Radar Online, the Braxton Family Values star hasn't properly paid taxes in years! In 2010 Vince was short $66, 315.30. And in 2011 he shorted the feds an astonishing $2,267,845.97. WHAAAAAAAAA!
What can I say about Brandi Glanville that hasn't already been said? She over shares? Yup. She has no filter? Duh. She has no problem throwing people under the bus? Check. Really nothing that comes out of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star's mouth shocks me anymore.
If you watch RHOBH, you know Brandi makes no secret about her financial situation. Even with her best-sellers, her bank account isn't even in the same stratosphere as her co-stars. I'm a flip-flopping Brandi fan, but I do like how candid she is about her struggles with money. She may not have the most, but she works hard for what she has…unlike when she was married to Eddie Cibrian.
