While most of us have been stuck inside thanks to Winter weather, the Real Housewives have ditched that cold and snowy life to relax (and probably turn up) on vacation in some warmer climates. Luckily for them, some of the Real Housewives have escaped the drama-filled cast trips.
Unfortunately for me (as a super fan), the ladies are all taking individual trips. The queen of the vacation turn up Vicki Gunvalson has been partying it up in Puerto Vallarta with her boo Steve Lodge. Ramona Singer is enjoying herself in South Beach, which made me flash back to Ramona bragging, “I go to Miami like I brush my teeth. Miami is not really a special place.” And then there is my favorite self-proclaimed jet setter, Sonja Morgan, who is sharing pictures and videos of her trip to St. Maarten.
Am I the only one who feels like pretty much every theme party these days is Gatsby themed? I get that the movie came out a couple years ago and that the outfits are fun without being too outrageous and stepping outside of the realm of regular clothing, but it’s been done A LOT. Well, it just happened again and this time the Gatsby fete was to celebrate Alexis Bellino’s 40th birthday.
In the least shady way possible, I had no idea that Alexis was that young. Since she was all about being traditional and old fashioned when she was a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, it seemed like she was older. But anyway, she did it up for the Gatsby theme in a party that looked worthy to be the setting for arguments between RHOC cast members – not that it seemed like any of those women were present.
It’s Day 16 on Celebrity Big Brother – the morning after the fight and Kim still shows no remorse in the diary room. She has decided it’s all Nicola’s fault (or Nicole, ‘cos she refuses to use her proper name) and hasn’t quite clicked that if everyone else is saying one thing, and she’s saying the other, they may have a point. As one of my fave housewives once said “Take this as a moment to look inside yourself and see that if everyone says your dead, it’s time to lie down”. But no, it’s a conspiracy, orchestrated by ‘Nicole’. I give up. Even the fact that Jessica is the only person to greet her when she comes back in the house, it’s not enough to make Kim even doubt herself.
We watched Cynthia say goodbye to her first Atlanta home as she prepared to move on to her lake home. Despite having a gorgeous new place lined up (eventually), she gets nostalgic over leaving it behind. “It was very difficult to pack up my old home. It is the only home that Noelle and I have ever known since our move to Atlanta from New York City almost nine years ago. There is so much history and memories in that house. I actually teared up watching the flashbacks. I didn’t think I would be so emotional. Noelle was excited about the move until it was actually time to move. Then she started to get all sentimental on me. She was eight years old when we moved to Atlanta, and now she is seventeen. Noelle grew up in that house.”
Speaking to blogger Love B Scott, they go deep into the psychology of Matt, and how it compares to Kenya’s situation with her mom, plus why she thinks some Housewives have SERIOUSLY crossed the line this season! “Honesty is key and I learned that very early on. You cannot fake for the cameras,” advises Kenya. “The cameras will see whatever it is.”
On Kenya’s “shit-show with Matt“: (as termed by Love B Scott.), Bravo only found out about Matt’s behavior the first time he broke the Moore Manor garage window. She first experienced his anger in Mexico, when they were dating for over a year.
It’s the day of James Jordan’s eviction from Celebrity Big Brother, and the recap takes us from the morning before he goes, through the eviction, and to the after-math. Tad confusing but do-able.
We start with Spencer Pratt being uber polite to Kim Woodburn and she just point blank ignores him like a buzzing gnat. I am actually liking Spencer and Heidi Pratt this season – something I never thought I’d say, but it does appear they are a lot quieter, or maybe the house in general is a lot louder. Same with Jedward, apart from the occasional featuring of them in some ‘let’s pretend’ game, the airtime they get is minimal. So perhaps we do have something to be grateful to Kim for…
