I. Love. Brandi Glanville. If Brandi doesn’t return next season, can Bravo please hire her to conduct these reunions, because girl is not afraid to bring it. Last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion was explosive, dishy, and far superior to any reunion I’ve ever seen. I’m giving credit where credit is due, so thank you, Brandi, and thank you also, Camille!
Things start out with Andy recapping Brandi‘s intro into the exclusive social club known as high school students masquerading as adult women. Forty going on fourteen! Brandi dispels rumors that she’s a slut, but wishes she was because sex is fun. Camille confirms Brandi is just joking about her sexual proclivities. The KyTayAdrienne sofa is practically hyperventilating over talk of Brandi’s swimsuits and outlandish jokes. They are, like, the most square sofa in reunion history!
Kyle admits that her behavior towards Brandi was ridiculous and insecure, stating she was afraid of Brandi’s entry into the group because Brandi is hot. Andy demonstrates just how ridiculous and immature Kyle was by bringing up the infamous Game Night. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never looked at Taboo! the same way since!

On tonight’s season 7 premiere, Peggy Tanous, who is no longer on the show, makes a brief return as she and Alexis Bellino come face-to-face for the first time since Alexis found out that Peggy dated her husband Jim, “meanwhile, Tamra must work hard in order to make ends meet and is trying to increase her real estate sales. Enter super rich Heather Dubrow who is looking for a new lot to build on. Tamra befriends Heather, but will the other ladies welcome Heather into their inner circle or will this only create more drama between the ladies?”
The show debuts tonight on Bravo at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
Moving on to Gretchen Rossi, 33, as the outspoken blonde, talks of her feud with Vicki Gunvalson and takes serious issue with Vicki’s treatment of Slade Smiley, considering Vicki’s new boyfriend Brooks Ayers also has issues with child support. “Vicki has always had a lot to say about Slade and his issues with paying child support, she always has an opinion on it,” says Gretchen to The BPlot blog. “Yet now, she’s dating a man who has had similar issues. She’s still being judgmental and a hypocrite. It escalated from there.”
Gretchen said the fight (the one that’s been shown on the previews) exploded over Vicki’s ignorance about Slade’s son Grayson‘s illness. Gretchen admits she “kind of lost it” when Vicki implied Gretchen doesn’t understand what it’s like to have a sick child. Vicki’s daughter, Briana Wolfsmith, has been seen dealing with health problems the past couple seasons. “Slade’s son … has been sick for multiple years, and I just thought she was really out of line,” Gretchen seethes. “That’s really where you kind of see me kind of blow my gasket with her.”
Gretchen is, however, happy she is no longer at odds with Tamra Barney. “I saw myself last season on camera, and I was just a very bitter, angry, resentful person,” she says. “I just kind of woke up one day and realized that’s not who I am.” That made Gretchen realize it was time to let it go and move forward.
I’m still not totally buying this sudden friendship between Gretchen and Tamra Sue. Perhaps I’ll have a change of heart once the new season begins airing!
In a separate interview with Life & Style magazine, Gretchen also discusses making babies with Slade! Though she’s still not ready to marry him.
“I know I want to have babies,” Gretchen tells Life & Style. “But I don’t know if I should have babies without being married, and I don’t know if I really want to be married yet.” Gretchen also promises we’ll see “a lot of personal contemplation” about her predicament on the new season. Err wasn’t that her storyline last season???
Finally, newbie Heather Dubrow is speaking out about joining the show in an interview with Ology. And in somewhat of a shocker, Heather reveals she had never watched the series before deciding to sign on! “I think me coming to the show is sort of interesting, because I’ve never seen the show. I came in with fresh eyes and met everyone for the first time,” says Heather, adding that she started filming two days after agreeing to join the cast.
When asked how she got along with her castmates, Heather reveals she and Alexis Bellino had the most drama! “I’m really enjoying their friendships. Out of everyone though, I would say Alexis and I have had some friction, which I guess you’ll have watch to see what happens.”
Heather was also asked about the jab by Gretchen which has been shown repeatedly on the Bravo network for the new season promo. In the promos, Gretchen reveals she has never heard of Heather before, who can be seen telling everyone she meets that she’s an actress. Heather states, “Oh, it didn’t bother me. I’ve never gone by Heather Dubrow in my professional life, so I wouldn’t expect her or anyone to know.” Right Heather, because I’m sure everyone knows who Heather Paige Kent is!
The new season preview is below!

On last night’s Love & Hip Hop, it was the Producer’s Tell All! I have to say I didn’t hate the format as much as I thought I would. With the ladies not yelling over one another, it was easier to get more questions answered… and they seemed to ask the questions viewers would want to know, aka no John Salley softballs!
The show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young reveals that because one several cast members now refuse to be in the same room together, coughs Chrissy, the show has to forgo the traditional reunion format. Instead, viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the inner-workings of the show as well as one-on-one interviews with the cast.
First up, Jim Jones! The man, the myth, the dude at the center of a lot of the ladies’ drama. This season’s new cast mate, Yandy Smith was the rapper’s manager for the past eight years, and she was supposedly brought on at the request of his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. However, quickly, the ladies began feuding, with Jim caught in the middle. It resulted in a total breakdown of Jim and Yandy’s professional relationship which we watched play out over the course of the season.

In case you don’t remember, Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant. Since making the announcement just days after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, Kourtney has been pretty mum on what’s going on with her uterus. I just assumed she was happily baking a new little Disick and there was nothing much to get worked up over – which is a nice change for the Kardashians.
Well, a new report from In Touch Weekly (available via their print edition) is claiming that there is major trouble in paradise between Kourtney and long-time beau and baby daddy,Scott Disick!
Viewers of the ever-annoying Kourtney and Kim Take New York witnessed Scott and Kourtney have a whole host of relationship problems, which they both claimed to have worked through. Nevertheless, it was surprising when shortly after filming ended, Kourtney announced her pregnancy. Perhaps they moved too fast!
Apparently, Scott has been picking on Kourtney and calling her fat as of late. During a recent dinner date, Scott’s taunting nearly left Kourtney in tears! “Scott was picking on her, making fun of her weight,” reveals an insider. “He even told the waiter that she would have ‘a side of beef.’” Even worse, Scott has taken to calling her “Portney”, as a way to describe her new supposedly portly figure. Scott’s comments and constant teasing have left Kourtney feeling insecure and unattractive.
According to insiders, Kourtney has come to expect this kind of behavior from Scott, who has been downright rude and unsupportive throughout her second pregnancy. Kourtney had believed having a second child would make Scott grow up and would reinforce their relationship, but sadly it’s made things worse! Scott has returned to his pre-Mason partyboy ways and is now spending countless nights out at the bars with this friends, flirting with other girls.
After a recent fight with Kourtney, Scott ditched his family for a wild time in Vegas at the opening of 10ak. “They had a fight, so Scott jumped on a plane and left her behind,” the source reveals. Scott has allegedly left all the parenting duties to Kourtney as well, while he flits around, focusing on his own whims. “Scott still expects Kourtney to wait on him,” the source says.”He’s just a dog.”
Because of Scott’s treatment of her and his disinterest in his family, Kourtney has started to believe Scott is only staying with her for her money! Scott has apparently become more aggressive with his demands to get his own slice of the Kardashian pie; wanting a larger percentage for appearing on their reality shows and lobbying for his own endorsement deals. It makes sense to me, but this is a family that does NOT like to share the wealth!
“He’s even tried to go behind her back to negotiate his own deal for rights to the baby’s first photos,” an insider shares. “It’s like all their baby is to him is another opportunity to cash in.”
So why does Scott’s bad behavior persist? Insiders report that the reality star refuses to leave Scott while she’s pregnant. “Scott gets whatever he wants because he knows she won’t leave him. Kourtney won’t learn,” the insider describes.
I’m not sure how much of this I buy based on what I saw on KKTNY – although, we know that show isn’t exactly a reliable source for reality! Sources have previously claimed that the trouble in their relationship is scripted! And speaking of reality…
Oh, for the love of irony… Kim and Leann Rimes have found religion. And each other. The twice divorced, sex tape siren and the adulteress have apparently bonded over their recent involvement in Christian fellowship. So that explains Kim’s sudden interest in Tebow!
A source tells toofab that Pastor Brad Johnson, who marriedKhloe Kardashianand Lamar Odom, introduced Kim and Leann while they were both attending services at his church, the Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills.
The name of this church is PERFECT for what Kim needs, may I just say! Hopefully Leann’s life change will come in the form of knocking off the Twitter antics.
Kim and Leann had lunch together this Friday and then met up again at services on Sunday – which were also attended by Kourtney, Mason, pimpmomager Kris Jenner, and LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian.
Kim and Leann have been spending the off days, since they don’t have jobs to speak of, tweeting about their new friendship and their new interest in the Lord. “So nice when your circle of supportive girl friends grows,” Leann wrote on Sunday following church. Kim responded with “Let’s all go swimming,” then teased about it being an inside joke. “@KimKardashian great seeing you and the fam. See you soon xoxo,” Leann added. If anyone can save those two it’s Jesus. I hope he’s up to the task!
In between praising the Lord and thanking him throughout her Twitter feed, Kim took time out to post yet another annoying kissy face photo!
IS SCOTT IGNORING KOURTNEY TO PARTY? DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE’S TEASING HER ABOUT HER WEIGHT GAIN? ARE KIM AND LEANN SINCERE ABOUT THEIR NEW INTEREST IN FAITH OR IS THIS (AND THEIR FRIENDSHIP) A PUBLICITY STUNT TO REHAB THEIR BADLY DAMAGED IMAGES?
Following a TMZ report last year that Bryson was arrested after shoplifting razors from a local Walmart, there are numerous reports this morning that Bryson was hospitalized following a brutal bar fight.
Sources tell the StraightFromTheA blog that Bryson got into an altercation, at a local Atlanta night spot during an argument with another patron over a girl.
Words were reportedly exchanged and the two young men came to blows, resulting in Bryson being escorted to the hospital with several head wounds and a broken jaw. Other reports state Bryson also suffered multiple broken bones in his face. Yikes.
Nene however took to her twitter late yesterday to issue a non-denial denial. The Nene tweeted: “Don’t get me wrong, I love 2 b prayed 4 but sendin me well wishes about a bunch of lies is just crazy! The sh*t yall read & believe.”
Unfortunately for Nene, she forgot to get the denial memo to her son Bryson, who tweeted that he was indeed in the hospital and on pain killers. Bryson tweeted: “Soon as the doc bring wat i need i go 2 sleep,” later adding: “Yay dey jus walked n wit my meds ill be on da moon in 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 q.”
Alrighty. Moving on to Kim Zolciak and her former assistant Sweetie Hughes! If you recall, the two had a falling out late last year for reasons they never revealed, which led to Kim firing her. The duo, however, appear to have made up last month.
Well, according to a new report/blind item, a source is claiming Kim fired Sweetie because Sweetie allegedly stole from her and brought people into her home. It gets even better, as the source states Kim would never speak negatively of Sweetie, because Sweetie has a ton of dirt on her! Now that I believe!
“One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!
Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!”
Ai ya ya. All very interesting!

According to a new report by Star magazine, a source is being quoted as stating that they “are hesitant to get pregnant again while involved with MTV.”
The source goes on to say that Maci “really wants a daughter with her current boyfriend Kyle King.” What better way to liven up her storyline than to show her adjusting to being the mother of a girl, and shopping for little girl clothing? Think of all the adorable pink merchandising opportunities!
Leah, who recently became pregnant with fiance Jeremy Calvert, and then miscarried, is “still hoping to have a third child” with Jeremy. Again, this would be another great path to pursue; watching Leah juggle twins, her ex Corey, and a new baby. The only teen mom I worry about is Chelsea, who despite everything, still wants another baby with Adam Lind. The source agrees with me, and thinks another kid is a bad idea, with or without MTV: “She said she didn’t want to make babies with anyone else. It’s a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.”
A true recipe for disaster is attempting to have more children after you’ve become used to a huge MTV paycheck. Then again, these ladies may have just come down with a case of I Want My Own Show-itis.
In other news, unfortunately, there is more to report on Jenelle Evans. We last reported she was facing jail time for violating a restraining order against ex-roommate Hannah Inman, which included accusations of Jenelle allegedly posting naked photos of Hannah to Jenelle’s Facebook fan page. It didn’t come as a shock to find out that Jenelle is now being accused of harassing yet another friend, Amber Lane.
In a new report, Amber alleges Jenelle cyber-bullied her: ““I’ve spent days crying over what Jenelle posted about me online calling me a slut and a whore and reading comments from her thousands of fans saying I should kill myself. Jenelle is a bully — and she got what she deserved, going to jail twice in one week on the harassment charges.”
Other lovely allegations include a story of Jenelle throwing a baby crib out of a window and “destroying a family heirloom” of Amber’s. Amber thinks the only thing that will teach Jenelle to be nice is to get locked up, saying “[Jail] is the only way she’ll ever learn. Her bullying techniques are so harsh it could eventually push someone over the edge to hurt themselves or commit suicide.”
A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US: DO YOU THINK MACI, CHELSEA, AND LEAH SHOULD GET PREGNANT AGAIN? DO YOU THINK THIS IS A PLOY TO GET HIGHER SALARIES OR THEIR OWN SHOWS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LATEST ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JENELLE?
Basketball Wives hasn’t premiered yet, but the drama preceding the show has been happening for months! In the latest, the much maligned Royce Reed talks the upcoming season, the arguments, and her opinion of creator and producer Shaunie O’Neal! Oh, and in case your wondering if Royce has any interest in joining the popular crowd – rest assured; she doesn’t!
Royce warns that this season viewers will see a decidedly less dramatic side of her as she stays out of the pettiness and the chaos. “Sorry to bust your bubble, but I’m not really in a lot of the drama,” she tells Sister2Sister. We will see her focusing on her outside projects, though. “I’m really out there just trying to do my own thing career-wise,” she explains. “I have a career outside of on this show.”
As for conflicts, Royce says there are none with the new editions to the cast, Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell, who she says are definitely getting along a lot better than season one non-factor Meeka Claxton!
“[Meeka] wanted to be cool with certain people that did not want to be cool with her and she pretty much got stabbed in the back like 10, 20, 30 times,” Royce reveals. “I tried to tell her. Tami [Roman] tried to tell her, and it was like in one ear and like the other. You see where she is now … I don’t have an issue with Meeka at all. We’ve actually talked. She’s apologized.” Royce adds that Meeka has since admitted she formed opinions on the ladies before actually getting to know them.
One person Royce hasn’t mended fences with is Shaunie, but don’t expect confrontations between the two. “I don’t film with her. We don’t like each other. I don’t know what her issue is with me. … She was making up lies about me that wasn’t true,” Royce insists.
Denying rumors that Shaunie acts as the puppeteer amongst the ladies, Royce is adamant that isn’t true. “She doesn’t pimp me, and I’m pretty sure y’all see she doesn’t pimp me. My thing is, she does not own the show.”
“She doesn’t make me do anything, say anything … Yeah, it brings in a check, but I refuse to sell my soul for a check,” Royce asserts. Despite some of her mistakes from last season, Royce stands by them and insists she makes her own decisions on the show. “Everybody makes mistakes, it’s just ours is in front of the world.”
Speaking of mistakes and drama, another person Royce will be ignoring this season is resident mean girl, Evelyn Lozada! Darn – who will Evelyn be flinging drinks at then? Oh, nevermind… she’ll find someone!
Speaking of Evelyn, she is denying recent rumors that her abs were drawn on for her recent Maxim photoshoot. “People thought my abs were sprayed on but they weren’t. They are all real!,” she insists to TooFab, while promoting her upcoming book, The Wives Association: The Inner Circle. Does Evelyn really expect people to believe she wrote a book?
Evelyn adds that the shoot was an “amazing experience” even though it was freezing. Is that why she looks upset in every shot? Oh, and she also wants you to buy her new make-up, E by Evelyn Lozada, which comes out this month. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of it on the upcoming season. A photo of Evelyn’s Maxim shoot is below!

Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.
Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!
“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!
Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”
“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”
Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”
“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”
“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.
And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.
Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.
Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.
Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!
Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”
“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”
Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
