On last night's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I was a little tad bit disappointed in Lisa Vanderpump. I want her to be unimpeachable. I want her to be pristine. I must accept – as we must all – that Lisa is only human. Lisa made a passive aggressive Splits Richards-esque comment toKim Richards (whom I will henceforth refer to as Rambles) because she was late to a cooking party.
Lisa joked this would be a repeat of Hawaii when everyone spent the whole trip waiting on Rambles. Then she asked if Kim took a sleeping pill. It was no bueno. Lisa said it, of course, in a teasing tone but Rambles got defensive and petulent. I know Lisa meant no harm and she is direct, but Kim is vulnerable (and a walking emotional volcano).
Lisa spent the entire evening discussing the Kim situation with Kyle and Mauricio instead of coming up to Kim and saying 'Look, I'm sorry. It was an inappropriate joke.' No instead she told everyone she had hurt Kim's feelings and didn't really know why or what to do. And Rambles complained that Lisa was "fake" and was trying to make her look bad.
On last night's Love & Hip Hop, we were treated with more of the same. Flashy characters and quality production can't save the boring story lines, and it's unfortunate. There was some potential in the beginning, but now it just makes me yawn.
Rich Dollaz is once again meeting with Pete Gunz, and Rich is ready for his mentor's "I told you so's" about Erica Mena. He tells his friend that the pair has broken up but he'd still like to manage her career. Pete still thinks his friend is crazy. His opinion on Erica being a loose cannon hasn't changed, and Pete doesn't think that she respects Rich. Rich knows he can harness her talent, so Pete brings out the big Gunz guns, showing him a picture online of Erica hosting a party. As her manager, Rich should have known about the gig, and he should be getting a cut of it. Rich is livid and humiliated that she would go behind his back, and Pete urges his friend to end their business partnership after already ending their romantic one.
Lore'l is still hurt about what Winter Amos wrote in her book. She claims that Winter lied when she said Lore'l didn't write her own raps. Needing some emergency career advice, Lore'l schedules an emergency meeting with Yandy Smith. Discussing the book reading, Yandy is impressed that Lore'l was able to maintain her composure in light of all of Winter's allegations. She also believes that Lore'l is talented and marketable, and she offers to mentor her. Score one for Lore'l!
Girls, girls, girls! I have all but given up on the young "ladies" of Teen Mom 2. Let's not even start with Jenelle Evans' recent rehab stint…let's just talk about the bad decisions they made in last night's episode alone! Get it together, Kailyn Lowry! Pick a guy, Leah Calvert Sims Messer! Do something about your hair, Chelsea Houska! And Jenelle? In all seriousness. Get off Twitter and get your life together for that precious little boy! Whew…it felt good to get that off my chest!
Last night's episode begins with Kailyn prepping for her first exchange with Jo in weeks. She's had Isaac to herself for almost a month while waiting on their hearing. Now that the protection from abuse order is dropped, she isn't excited to drop Isaac off because she knows that she and Jo won't speak. Kailyn is livid thinking about the fact that Jo has his girlfriend around their son. She puts Isaac before her, Javi and her friends…even when Javi is spending the night. It's not the same as selfish Jo continuing to live with his family and hang out with Vee once a week. Why can't anyone see the difference? Geez! I can't help but notice two things–Kailyn is getting very dolled up to see her ex, and she seems to be taking her tanning cues from Chelsea and Leah. Orange you glad that Kailyn got a spray tan? The trade-off is very tense, and Kailyn informs Jo that Isaac has a cold. If he takes their son to the doctor, he'd better let her know!
Jenelle hasn't spoken to Gary since she found out that he hooked up with Tori before they started dating. She's looking forward to getting off probation so she can fall back into the Keiffer trap. He's texted her that it's them and Jace against the world. Let's leave sweet Jace out of this, shall we Keiffer? Her roommate wonders why Jenelle is even giving Keiffer the time of day. She's re-evaluated the pros and cons between Keiffer and Gary, and while Gary has a job and a car, Keiffer is nice to her. He's getting his act together…and by "getting his act together" she means that he's no longer incarcerated.
The former star of The Hills has recently been spotted filming with his famous half-siblings and Brody's rep confirmed yesterday that he'll be featured on season 8 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "[Brody] is joining the show but may not be in every episode. It depends on the storyline."
Brody, who has been flying under the radar since he split with Avril Lavigne in 2012, has been trying to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. A source tells Us that Brody "has been chilling. He's trying to figure out to do with his life."
Adrienne took to her blog to confirm the news, "To my loyal fans… It was time to exit RHOBH. The show served as a wonderful platform for all the amazing projects that I have in the works. I am forever grateful to my fans, thank you for your support, and stay tuned! xoxoA".
There. That's done and over and settled – Adrienne is out. Let's move on, shall we?
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD TO SEE HER GO? DO YOU THINK SHE QUIT OR DID BRAVO FIRE HER?
Two words: Poof. Power. Harvin Eadon sometimes wishes that she could poof people away, adding, "If I had poof power, my whole world would change." Totally. Poof power is exactly what is missing from my life.
Big Rich Atlanta stars Harvin and Meyer Eadon discuss last week's art show and fret over whether or not Daryll Manning, who is Team Sharlinda Parker, will be open to carrying their jewelry line, She Blame Me, in his boutique. The sisters are on their way to a business meeting with Daryll (hopefully on time!) so I guess they'll find out soon enough.
Meanwhile, Meagan McBrayer bounces (pun intended) her way into the gym to workout with Kahdijiha Rowe. Understandably, Kahdijiha is a upset about how the art show went down, and she vents her frustrations to her friend. When Meagan invites Kahdijiha to join her, Harvin, and Meyer for a weekend at a lake house, Kahdijiha quips, "The last time I bonded with girls, I pulled somebody's weave out."
Their lament: the way the show is set up (i.e. it being a REALITY show) other cast members can say anything about anyone on the show and get away with it even if it's mean, hurts their feelings, or is allegedly, possibly a deep dark secret that no one wants revealed and is being lied about.
