I’ll be honest, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the hardest show for me to watch, yet it’s also my favorite of the franchise. Adrienne Maloof and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif had my heart early on…they seem very down to earth to be on a show where the women eat diamonds and cocktail hour begins at breakfast. The RHOBH women are on another level from their Bravo counterparts. Maybe that is why it’s so hard to see some of our faves floundering in their personal lives.
Case in point? Adrienne and Paul. Their constant bickering was funny during the first season, but now, as we approach season 3, it’s become sad. It was no surprise when the news broke of the couple’s separation. The duo seems to love one another, but yet neither can miss the opportunity to call out the others’ weaknesses. That’s not good for a marriage, I guess.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to give us an hourly play by play of their lives. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Immediately following Janelle‘s eviction, the houseguests all but handed the Head of Household to Frank. Frank, the ox-like creature teamed up with Boogie, who has escaped eviction three times in four weeks… makes perfect sense. But, it’s okay, right? The Silent Six should be safe. They promised!
Britney immediately came down with a case of “OH S**T!” In the end, Frank stayed true to the alliance thanks to Boogie‘s insistence, and nominated Wil Heuserand Joe Arvin. Frank really wanted to nominate Dan. Boogie said no. Frank won the Power of Veto and really wanted to back door Dan. Boogie said no. Boogie is such a buzz kill.
The Big Brother week started with Joe as the target and Wil as the pawn. Then, Wil proved just how much he sucks at playing Big Brother. Wil’s flippant attitude left Boogie and Frank feeling uneasy. Who is evicted – Wil or Joe?
Joey admitted he had struggled with substance abuse for years and left the show mid-season to enter rehab. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to maintain his sobriety. Following that he appeared on 2010’s Celebrity Rehab where he was described as being addicted to cocaine and ecstasy.
The show’s website details Joey’s history with substance abuse: “Joey had been abusing massive amounts of alcohol, cocaine, ecstasy, meth and, as part of his bodybuilding, steroids since he was a teenager and had come very close to death through an overdose.”
Aaaahhh… last night the bitchery on Project Runway was at an all-time high. Apparently the producers think we want that – we don’t. We want high-quality interesting fashions. We didn’t get that. We got meltdowns of epic proportions instead. And one delightful Dmitry who is slowly warming my ice cold Reality TV fashion blogging heart. Marry me you Russian dancing boy stud with the deadpan stare.
So last night the designers had to divide into two teams and create a “capsule collection” of work wear for Marie Claire Work – which is apparently a magazine? Is that like the magazines Ramona Singer appeared on the cover of? AKA: no one has heard of them and you can get them for free next to the trashcans outside of the 7-11? Anyway, yay! Product promotions!
So Gunnar (crazy skunk head loony boy with drama coursing through his veins like a fiery will) and Raoul (already eliminated once and back with a desperate vengeance) are picked last. Cue the meltdowns. Shockingly it was Elena, Dmitry‘s former Soviet Bloc comrade, who suffered from the biggest bitchery fit last night.
It was a divorce made in TMZ-heaven for former Real Housewives of DC White House crashers and total wackies Michaele and Tareq Salahi, but the notorious famewhores have finally and officially ended their tumultuous marriage!
Aaaaahhh… remember the good ol’ days of their crazy antics? Michaele has finally flown the coop and is now legally permitted to marry Journey guitarist Neal Schon (Yeah, those two publicity seekers are still together!) – hopefully they won’t be purchasing anymore lingerie in front of the waiting eyes of the paparazzi they hired!
Anyway, Michaele and Tareq resolved things. “I am thrilled with the resolution of this case and to close this chapter in my life and now move forward in a positive manner,” Tareq told E! News.
Trista (Rehn) Sutter, the original Bachelorette, revealed she recently went under the knife, hoping to “feel pretty” again. Trista opted to have a blepharoplasty, which lifts the eyelids and removes under-eye bags, and a breast augmentation and lift.
“After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated and I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I’ve ever taken,” Tristasays.
Kyle shares that her family decided together to do the show and that they’ll quit if it becomes an issue down the road. “When we started the show, we sat down as a family and asked if anyone had any reservations. If anyone raised their hands, we wouldn’t do it. We had a rule that if we ever felt like it was interfering with our personal lives or my husband and my relationship, I would walk away in seconds, without a doubt. One of our rules is that we have to be home more than we are out. So if it’s a busy week and there are a lot of events, we make sure we only go three times and are home four of the nights. I don’t like seeing families where they’re always out and never see the kids. We make sure to make time for each other.”
