***Spoiler Alert**** If you haven't watched tonight's episode of RHOC, you may not want to read this until you do! Also, please link to us if you use our quotes/transcription from the show, we would do the same for you…
Of course, the buzz of the night was Tamra's treatment of co-star Alexis Bellino. Andy kicks off the show with a call for Tamra (also in the clubhouse tonight is Dr. V from L.A. Shrinks). The caller asks "Did you allow Alexis to come just so you could kick her out?" Tamra explains, "Absolutely not. No, [I let her come] because Vicki and I were trying to rekindle our friendship"
Tamra defends her actions at the party, "I don't feel I treated her poorly that day. I had to be honest with myself and with her. Last time I heard from her, she wanted to sue me. So, then she shows up to my party. So when I said 'I have to ask you why ARE you here?'. (Dr V interjects and says Tamra could've done that before the party) Tamra says "I didn't have that chance, I wanted to make Vicki happy."
Things have apparently worked out and Tamra recently showed off their redecorated home, which she turned from a "man cave" to a family space. A video of the tour is below!
Moving on,Alexis Bellino has definitely had some rough times on reality television. Viewers were surprised when she returned this season after initially quitting (getting fired?) due to contract issues. However she is ba-ack!
Describing this season as "Alexis with all the dead ends cut off!” in a new interview with All Things Real Housewives, Jesus Barbie dishes on where things stand with her co-stars and why she's a whole new girl this round!
The next morning, Mariah wakes up Aydin and ushers him outside for a picnic. First, Mariah apologizes for her behavior the night before, and a confused Aydin asks his wife why she did what she did. Mariah is like, of course that's not the person I strive to be, but Toya ran her mouth!
Mariah informs Aydin that co-host Kari Wells sent her a PayPal invoice, requesting money for damages, and Aydin cannot believe what he's hearing. A shocked Aydin asks "what damages" and Mariah complains about how they paid for "the whole damn party" only to be kicked out. Finally, Mariah apologizes for embarrassing Aydin, adding, "But I'm also sorry that I didn't really beat Toya's ass like I wanted to."
To Kari and Toya, Mariah warns, "The same way I brought you in, I will block you out."
ABC released the Desiree's promo photos for the season. Nice Photoshop! She is flashing a big smile and snuggling some roses, of course. Hopefully they're been de-thorned. Desiree's season has been given the vomit-inducing slogan "Her time to dream." And she apparently has some major struggles choosing the one, of course.
"I just can't even believe I'm here. And with the support of everyone? It's just such a blessing," Desireegushed about being The Bachelorette. "I could have never imagined signing up for The Bachelor and having this opportunity. I'm just overcome with happiness."
With good comes bad, it seems! NeNe Leakes just announced her spinoffI Dream Of NeNe (which will premiere this fall). Unfortunately one of her sisters is continuing to court the media in an attempt to "expose" NeNe as a liar and user.
Now all Kim will need to do is figure out the next drama inducing scenario to keep her in the tabloids. Speaking of inducing, perhaps she could have doctors make sure she goes into labor smack dab in the midst of a public appearance! Oh Kris, you may not have gotten your annulment, but you totally dodged a bullet!
Last night was the conclusion of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. And it was a whirlin', twirlin', spinning time. There were more lies, half-truths, and defense mechanisms swirling around that stage than in the eye of a tornado. And I'm dizzy.
A certain someone in a yellow dress needs to sit down and get her twirl out of Andy Cohen's face. Lord knows that may have been the closest he's ever been to a lady's anatomy.
Things begin with recapping Kim Zolciak's exit from the stage (and the show!). She texted NeNe Leakes a bevy of glowing compliments. In exchange NeNe wishes her well and calls her out on the wig pieces she was trying to pass off as her "real hair". Wig shade never ceases to amuse me. I call Kim's clip-in beehive "Marge".
