Did y'all watch The Voice last night? I have to be honest, I have so much in my DVR on Mondays, that I'm going to have to save it for later in the week. That said, I can't wait to see what I anticipate being a much more fun and positive camaraderie among the judges. Don't get me wrong, I'll miss Cee Lo Green, but I think that Shakira and Usher will be great additions alongside Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. As for Xtina? No comment.
There is something about this competition that I truly adore. It's equal parts the design of listening without looking and the witty back and forth among the judges that makes it all the more entertaining. Add in incredible talent, and it's a hit. Of course, there is the always hilariously honest Blake to keep things in check, and he's dishing on the two newbies.
Things have been at a standstill with the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York. Rumors have been running rampant since no official cast announcements have been made and filming hasn't started. We may now know why! It's being speculated that Bravo is recasting the entire crew!
Next week is the NBC upfront presentations and none of the current cast of New York has been invited, nor are they listed on the tipsheet. This is a very big deal. For those who don't know, the upfront presentations are where the networks preview their upcoming fall and midseason series for advertisers, the press, and other networks. The stars of said shows are always present for the event.
How quickly all good things come to an end! I had no clue that we are just one episode away from the season finale of Love & Hip Hop. Thank goodness. Basically, at this point, the show is only focusing on two tumultuous relationships and a potential prison term. Everyone else is just along for their five minutes of screen time every other week. You all know who I mena mean!
The episode begins with Raqi Thunda heading to Olivia Longott's performance in hopes of finding Tahiry Jose to apologize. She explains that Joe Budden wants her to mend fences, but after a half-baked apology, they are yelling at each other. Ahhh, maturity.
At home, Yandy Smith is snuggling with little Mendeecees and baby Amir while Mendeecees, Senior looks on happily. They share their engagement news with the little guy, and he's excited about having Yandy in the family. Sure, he's only seven, but VH1 made sure he was over the moon upon hearing the news. There is no doubt about it–Mendeecees produces some precious children.
It's twofer Tuesday! Today we have not just one new maternity style from pregnant reality TV star Kim Kardashian, but two!
The first shot, shown above, is Kim arriving in NYC yesterday in this black and white ensemble, which includes -gasp! – flats! Kim had to take to Twitter to share her shock over wearing a pair of shoes that weren't 5 inches high. "I never thought I would ever say this… But I'm wearing flats today".
Tonight is the season finale (and reunion!) of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Bravo has apparently decided to punish me by chaining me to the TV tonight, but luckily I'll at least have drama to sustain myself!
Last week Faye Resnick showed her truly hideous, not found in nature true colors when she attacked Brandi Glanville in a desperate bid to get camera time. Regarding all the claims that she was having sex in Splits Richards' bathroom and flirting with married men, Brandi calls Faye "disgusting" and says that's definitely not what happened!
"I was very shocked to seeMarisa [Zanuck] stirring the pot the way she did, that is not the Marisa I know and like," Brandishares in her Bravo blog. "Thank goodness for Yolanda [Foster] setting these cackling hens straight. I told y'all Yolanda was gangster."
Mariah, who thinks she was born to be on TV, clearly spends a lot of time watching reality TV and studying the mannerisms and catch phrases of other reality tv stars. If Tamar Braxton, Sheree Whitfield, Sheree Fletcher, Phaedra Parks, and Andrea Kelly (did I miss anyone?) got busy and made a baby, it'd be Mariah. It's Mariah's birthday, and she and her friends are going to have a fabbbbulous time because – you better check your email! – she's the queen bee. Mariah is married to emergency room physician Dr. Aydin Huq.
Kari (Holy puffy lips, Batman!) is the first one to arrive. Duh, says Mariah, because she's white. Kari is married to orthopedic surgeon Dr. Duncan Wells. "There are many different types of doctors," explains Kari. "But the most respected are the surgeons because they're playing with the big tools and they're bringing in the cash." Kari lets us know that her outward appearance doesn't come easy. It takes a lot of botox, collagen, and silicon work.
Love has an appointment with her neurologist. She was involved in a horrible car accident a few years ago, and she still suffers from pain as a result. Her doctor questions her headaches, temper, and memory loss, and Love is worried that she's getting worse. In fact, just the other day, she got into a fight with some girls in the bathroom at a club, and she has no recollection of shoving one of the women's faces in the toilet. No way. The neurologist believes she's suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after cracking her skull in the accident, and he urges her not to get in situations where her temper could be exacerbated and she could lose consciousness in a fit of rage.
Karen and Ramona are preparing to go back to Staten Island, and Karen is thankful that she was able to work things out with Dave and meet his girlfriend. She feels they made a lot of progress, and that will only be a positive step for Karina. Dave drops by to say good-bye, and he's pleased that the pair have opened up their lines of communication. Now Karen can focus on reopening her father's case.
Sabrina McKenzie visits Cori Davenport, who is friends with Kim Zolciak and Ashlee Wilson Hawn, to discuss possibly speaking to the youth who attend her gymnastics gym. Cori hopes that Sabrina will be willing to be a mentor of sorts to her students. Sabrina feels as if this is a phenomenal opportunity for her to share her testimony and give back.
Meanwhile, Kahdijiha Rowe wants to treat mom Sharlinda Parker to a shopping spree on Daddy Q Parker's dime. "You know I want something," Kahdijiha says. "I love you, Dadddy." Q cuts straight to the point, asking, "How much?" Kaddijiha asks for 10K – Q offers 8K and Kahdijiha pouts.
Next, we learn that Katie Davidson has invited Sabrina to lunch, and we all know it's not because she longs to spend time with a dear friend. Katie clearly has an agenda, saying, "I heard some ladies at the country club gossiping talking that Sabrina and Cori are becoming friendly. I felt compelled to be a bitch to give her a head's up about Cori, who might be taking advantage of preacher Sabrina, to bring some positive energy to her cheer gym."
Not positive energy! I hereby sentence Cori to death by stoning! Katie seriously needs toget over herself.
