I guess all the crystals in the world can't heal stupidity. Reality television's original villain and his surgically enhanced wife are finally admitting what we've all known for years…they were foolish. Heidi Montag was the fresh-faced, doe-eyed biffle of Laguna Beach alum Lauren Conrad when the girls conquered The Hills. Enter Spencer Pratt as Heidi's love interest and friendships crumble, siblings take sides, and the ridiculousness that is Speidi was born.
They started out tame enough, but quickly morphed into the most hated couple that seemed to thrive off of their horrific reputations. Then Heidi went and became a human Barbie getting oodles of plastic surgery including basketball sized tatas, and Spencer became obsessed with quartz. It didn't end well. Thankfully, they faded off into obscurity…kind of.
Apparently, its only on Bravo when stars get turned down for televised weddings (sorry Gretchen Rossi!), but on any other network the acquaintances of barely featured reality stars can have their walk down the aisle shoved down the viewers' throats. Well, technically I guess we don't have to watch…but we all know I can't pass up train wreck television!
Confession time – Lilly Ghalichi is growing on me. Now, calm down. I'm not looking to join her fan club or saving her selfies to my desktop, but I find myself looking forward to her scene (no 's' necessary) on Shahs of Sunset lately.
Is she self-absorbed? Yes. Does her voice annoy my face off? Yes. But – she owns it! Lilly doesn't pretend to be anything but who she is. I respect that. I'm one of the few who appreciates Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi for the same reason.
Lilly brings some comic relief to an otherwise mean-spirited Shahs of Sunset these days. IMHO. Also funny? Comedian Amy Phillips making fun of Lilly!
Kyle Richards is going to be dining out on this cheating story a long time! But she will certainly not be dining out at SUR or Villa Blanca.
In this episode Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky once again dismissed the rumors as ridiculous, but meanwhile across town, Kyle's former friend Lisa Vanderpump wasn't 100% certain Kyle's hubby – or any one else's – didn't cheat!
"After last week, I really was at a loss as to how I could move forward with Lisa and Brandi [Glanville]. Then after seeing this week's episode it makes it even more difficult," Kyle begins. "Lisa brings up the tabloids once again and so clearly wants to cast doubt on my marriage and Mauricio's integrity while pretending to be supportive. You aren't being supportive if you're saying 'Well, I don't know for sure' and putting that out there."
"I am very appreciative of Kenspeaking up to Lisa and saying he knows it's not true because he knows Mauricio and considers him a friend," Kyle adds.
Whether you admit to liking it or not, Vanderpump Rules is a hit for Bravo. I mean who can resist the real world version of Mean Girls complete with Stassi Schroeder as the biggest bitch since Lila Fowler. Lord knows I love me some Sweet Valley High! Yes, still…
With the over-abundance of dysfunction, it seems the cameras cannot turn away. Jax Taylor shared on twitter that not only is the show still taping but that we can expect an expanded second season "14 episodes instead of 8 plus a reunion," he clarified.
