How could you not love the Robertson family from A&E's Duck Dynasty? The answer is…you can't not love them. It's a sheer impossibility to find anything wrong with this crew.
As you all know, the Robertsons love family, faith, sweet tea, deer hunting, and apparently, surprises! The folks attending the grand opening of the new Field & Stream in Crescent Springs, KY can certainly attest to that fact! Uncle Si and nephew Alan Robertson surprised the crowd who was participating in a Duck Dynasty Look-A-Like contest and took photos with the winners.
Five winners were chosen in all including two Uncle Si winners (a child and an adult), and Jase, Willie and Phil impersonators. Seriously, how could you not adore this family?
And I thought I was the only one who was freaking out that it was already November. I mean, I haven't met my yearly goals of 2013 (which include but are not limited to: get engaged to a kind, handsome millionaire, hang out with Uncle Si, and try every wine ever created by a reality star). Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak-Biermann also can't believe how quickly 2013 is flying by us. Of course, with all of Kim's believing and receiving this year, she should eagerly anticipate the treats that 2014 undoubtedly has in store for her. As for me, I don't think I'm going to be eating barbeque with the Robertsons in the new year, so…
As we know, Kim likes to share her family life with fans. It must be a precursor to being a reality star. I think they are genetically wired to crave that attention! Regardless, Kim's kids are cute, and their Halloween fun makes for fluff fodder…and sometimes isn't that better than the normal nastiness and gossip?
Well, we're back for another classy installment ofLove & Hip Hop which begins with Amina Buddafly bragging to Rich Dollaz about her marriage to Peter Gunz. She is a horrible actress as she tries to act like she's sick of being considered his side-chick. Peter can't believe she's spilling their secret. After all, he told her that no one could ever know about their little wedding. Mona, I'm insulted. This is what passes for "reality" these days? This is about as real as my relationship with Ryan Gosling.
K. Michelle and her friend Paris are meeting Yandy Smith for gossip and cocktails. They discuss the dating scene in New York City, and K. Michelle reveals that she won't date another man with a hairless cat. Before I can get totally grossed out by K's weird sexual references, she explains that she once dated a guy who actually had a Grandma Whiskers. Yandy decides to plan a ladies' night out to welcome her friend to the Big Apple.
We're introduced to Nya who is a stripper turned rapper (sound familiar?), so of course Rich feels inclined to stop by the studio to check out her sound. Nya isn't keen on having a manager who is known for sleeping with his artists. She's already got enough to overcome with the whole stripper gig. Rich is insulted. Google him. He makes dreams come true. This is either the worst first meeting between "business people" or a prelude to a sexually charged manager-artist relationship. I've learned only one thing from this flipping franchise, and that is the studio time costs money. This entire exchange just seems like a big ol' waste of cash to me.
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Not much has changed since last season except for the fact that Lisa Vanderpump is being given the bitch edit. Or she's become a bitch? Or always was one? Whatever – things are odd so far!
Kyle Richards and Lisa spend the whole episode playing tit-for-tat and throwing shady covert digs at each other that are kind of diggy and kind of funny and definitely fake as the boobs in the ol' BH.
Things begin with Yolanda Foster chaperoning daughter GiGi's modeling shoot. GiGi is gorgeous and Yolanda could not be more proud. A fact she expresses by reminding GiGi that all the dieting and exercising has paid off. Yolanda is still rocking last season's outfit and the same set of natty extensions. You own a private plane – get better hair! I should cut the lady some slack, she has been battling lyme disease. 🙁
Not getting any slack from me is Kyle. Good ol' Splits! She's adding business woman to her resume because Kaftans Too For Me & You or whatever the H-E-Double-Hockeysticks her shop is called is now getting the attention of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. They want Kyle to join, presumably because the country club needs new robes and she has a bunch in stock.
The site explains that Dina realized the interview would touch on some of the ickiness that is RHONJ, she agreed because it would inevitably help publicize her Goddess Night Out event for Project Ladybug which she is hosting November 11th. Dina shares, "It's our sixth annual Ladies Night Out. I've grown a lot spiritually in the past four or five years, and what I have learned has helped me. I want to share that with as many people. … So, instead of making it just Ladies Night Out, and a great fun party, I'm making it Goddess Night Out. And it's all about inspiring women to embrace the goddess within and being beautiful inside and out."
Brandi is looking forward to her new venture and the chance to say whatever she wants (no bleeped cursing!) and is excited because a few of her celebrity friends who refused to be filmed for RHOBH have agreed to be guests on the podcast. She shared in a press release “It’s great being the one who gets to ask the questions. We’re making the show entertaining, informative, fun and as spontaneous as possible, so you never know what someone is going to say next.”
PodcastOne CEO Norm Pattiz has faith in Brandi and feels she was born for this, sharing “Brandi is a natural, in every sense of the word. No thought goes unspoken and what you hear is who she is. She was born for this medium. We’re glad to have her at PodcastOne.”
As Tamra Barney,Heather Dubrow and Vicki Gunvalson headed off to Hawaii to film season nine of the reality series, Lydia stayed behind by choice. The now-former reality star confirmed her departure. "I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with — it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."
