That title cracks me up because it could probably be said of MANY of the Real Housewives. Today's (not so) blind item comes from Crazy Days and Nights. This is probably one of the easiest blind items ever.
"This real housewife recently went on vacation. She wants the world to think the family has plenty of money and that the luxury vacation proves it. Reality is that the vacation was paid for by a company in exchange for photos to be sold and the family is more broke than they have ever been and if not for the show would probably be living at the in-laws house."
I'm biting my tongue because this one is pretty much a no-brainer if you've been watching Twitter over the past week or so.
This has been a tough week for Bobbi Kristina! Apparently Bobbi and adopted brother/boyfriend Nick Gordon have decided to announce the end of their engagement on twitter!
"@REALbkBrown and I are not engaged or dating. Just close like we have always been," Nick tweeted. Hours later The Houstons: On Our Own star announced the couple/friends/siblings/video game partners were hanging out together.
Perhaps Bobbi wasn't aware of Nick's plans at the time, because days later she posted a couple cryptic tweets alluding to the single-girl life. Which may be a good thing for the 19-year-old! "I'm leaving , this this good ole town and driving to the send of the world . Maybe it's beautiful there (: Xxxo," she mused. "I guess it's time 4me2stop depending on anymore."
So yeah, this post is going to give me nightmares. I am totally freaked out by the paranormal. I have seen a ghost zero times…I have never had any kind of creepy encounter, but I did baby-sit for a family in college (the type of family who would NEVER believe in ghosts) who totes knew they lived in a haunted house. It was the old gallows house (the hanging tree was still in the backyard) and later a hospital during the Civil War. Their young sons would often talk of the "man in the white coat" until they got to the age where things you couldn't see didn't exist. They had countless happenings in that house that couldn't be explained by anything normal. I get chills just thinking about it, but they were such sweet kids. I hope college is treating them well. #old
Anyway, I am equal parts intrigued and terrified of ghost stories. Give me Kiss the Girls on repeat in the middle of the night with a known murderer on the loose than The Ring at 9am surrounded by puppies and friends. Weird, I know. Every now and then I like to scare myself silly with a random episode of A Haunting during the middle of the day, but those times are few and far between. Long Island Medium is about as supernatural as my television watching gets, and I'll admit I'm addicted.
Yawn. It's like the most dramatic rose ceremonyKim Kardashian divorce ever. How is it possible that the divorce proceedings are lasting three times as long as the actual marriage. Why oh why can't Kim just admit that her marriage to Kris Humphries was for her reality show and spare us all the endless gossip and back and forth of this silly divorce? I mean, part of me is glad she isn't…I like my job, but we all know Kim didn't really want to marry him for real life purposes. The girl changes boyfriends/potential fiancés/randoms who may or may not be willing to walk down the aisle with her as often as I brush my teeth…and I have excellent oral hygiene. Never had a cavity!
What bothers me most about this divorce isn't the ridiculousness of it all or even the drawn out nature and pettiness from both sides. It is this: The whole thing could be over and done with if Kim would just admit the marriage was for show. Kris gets none of her fortune regardless…her prenup bars him recovery in the event of a divorce, and if there was never any marriage (which would happen with Kris' desired annulment), he has no basis for monetary gain there either. You can't get alimony if you never had a marriage. Sure, I guess they could find the prenup void and the marriage valid, but that doesn't work for the premise of my argument.
All Kris wants her to do is tell everyone what we already know…the wedding was for ratings. Nothing more, nothing less. I mean, she is literally laughing in our faces, thinking we are stupid enough to believe that it was a fairytale romance. We watch your show, Kim. You have more chemistry with the doormen of whatever building in whatever city you happen to be living in currently than you did with Kris. Basically, I just don't like being played for a fool. Kim, quietly admit to what we all already know and be done with it. It could actually help your sad image more than the path you're choosing. Off my soapbox and on to the divorce drama…thanks for indulging me!
NeNe Leakes was lucky enough to land herself on the cover of Ebony Magazine for their 2012 Money & Power issue, on newstands now. Unfortunately Ebony's decision was met by controversy and extreme reaction by many readers, who didn't feel the Real Housewives of Atlanta star represented the African American community or the revered issue of the magazine well.
NeNe is defending her cover and claims she absolutely deserves to be there! “This cover is about money, power, and respect. And it’s about a come-up story and I’m the one that had that story this year … Not only did I come out as a reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious and outspoken and all those things. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of people can’t do that," NeNe shared with The Daily Beast.
NeNe also reveals that almost all the criticism against her comes from the African American community. “But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most negative,” NeNe reveals.
It's the season finale of Flipping Out, y'all, and the drama from last night's show is palpitating. Poor Monkey the cat is sick, and Jeff Lewis thinks that maybe he should take his pet to Dr. Donna so they can work out their issues. I mean, I think the cat is the last living thing at JLD (save for Vanina who never talks) who has yet to meet the therapist. Gage Edward and Zoila Chavez are surprised to learn that Jenni Pulos hasn't given Jeff the apology he so desperately needs for Cabo-gate. Sure, she's said she's sorry for hurting his feelings or sorry for not telling him…but she still isn't sorry she used the house.
For once, Gage encourages Jeff to try to work things out with Jenni, and Zoila is worried that Jenni is going to get fired. Jeff takes Andrew and Vanina to Gramercy while chatting with his realtor on the phone. He thinks Gramercy isn't selling because it's not furnished. His plan is now to sell Spring Oak, move to Gramercy, and then try to sell it again once he's furnished it. Gage is beside himself, and he is hopeful that once they move in, Jeff will change his mind about keeping Gramercy on the market. If they stay in Gramercy, Gage is convinced that they will be able to finally start a family.
Meanwhile, Monkey's vet makes a house call. Jeff tells him of the emergency surgery that yielded nothing in his stomach but gas bubbles. The poor cat is then diagnosed with herpes of the eye. What? How does that even happen to a cat?
