You can’t escape the latest “it” girl, and why would you want to? Gigi Hadid is drop-dead gorgeous (as are her siblings), she’s dating Cody Simpson, and she counts Taylor Swift (love), Selena Gomez, and Kendall Jenner among her besties. She just landed a coveted contract with Maybelline. Girlfriend is having one heck of a year.
The stunning nineteen-year-old first came on our radar with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as her mother Yolanda Foster monitored her snack intake. Now Gigi’s star is shining brighter than all the lemons in YoFo’s ridiculous refrigerator. Seriously. Growing up the daughter of Mohammed and Yolanda alone would be enough to potentially turn her into a spoiled and entitled wild child…much like some other reality stars’ kids who shall remain nameless. However, Gigi seems incredibly down to earth both on the show and in interviews.
I was strangely anticipating Christine’s mother’s addition to Sister Wives last night? The thought of another woman adding to Kody Brown’s misery makes me a bit giddy. It has the potential to be pretty amazing, although given how boring this season has been thus far, I won’t hold my breath. How many road trips can one family take? Oh wait? Another road trip on last night’s episode? The Browns should buy stock in U-Haul.
Mykelti and Aspyn are moving into their apartment, and Christine is devastated that she’s losing her free help and baby-sitters. She has a genius plan…she’ll invite her mother to come live with her to fill in the gap. How about actually taking care of your kids yourself? Nah, too easy. Her two eldest daughters are excited to be moving in together. The sisters have come a long way in their relationship from the fighting preteens they once were. Mykelti jokes that they can practice being sister wives. Aspyn wisely believes that actual sisters as sister wives is a terrible idea. Both girls agree that their half-sister Mariah would be a hard person to be sister wives with if they had to choose. You think?
I think the best part of this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta is the addition of Roger Bobb, if for no other reason than I love saying his name. His relationship with newbie Demetria McKinney has come under scrutiny because, well, those who had known Roger Bobb for years never knew he was actually in a relationship.
Things became a bit more hairy when Kandi Burruss’ friend Gocha Hawkins claimed to date the producer a few years ago…which didn’t jive with Demetria’s timeline of their eight years together. However, Demetria is ready for everyone to stop worrying her relationship with Roger Bobb. Things are and have been just fine. How could they not be with a name like Roger Bobb?
NeNe Leakes is about to take her “Girl, bye.” phrase to court (no, it’s not cause Cynthia is filing for divorce)! According to “Black-owned family business” Tees in the Trap, a company that creates tees referencing pop culture and the “urban girl experience,” NeNe lifted their slogan and their t-shirt design, but then issued them a Cease & Desist letter for infringing on her territory! Oh dear.
NeNe became known for using the phrase “Girl, bye” on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but this season she decided to expand on her vernacular by creating a line of tees that features all of NeNe’s “infamous” sayings – “Girl, bye.” included.
Unfortunately Tees in the Trap was already producing a tee that looks remarkably similar to what NeNe has brought to the market. They claim NeNe spotted one of THEIR tees in an Atlanta retailer – she was even photographed wearing it (see below) – and decided to co-opt the idea for herself! Then NeNe trademarked the phrase and is now demanding Tees in the Trap stop using it. Oh dear.
With so many reality TV shows coming and going lately, we decided to gather up the reality TV listings every week for Sunday through Friday.

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
True Tori star Tori Spelling shared, “In bed with a terrible migraine. 3 things getting me thru it… bag of frozen peas (quick fix for ice pack), homemade lavender face mist (great essential oil for headaches), and Saranoni blanket in Ivory a must for the bedroom.”
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to like Claudia Jordan on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta as much as I do. Granted, I teeter back and forth with every episode, but she’s growing on me…much like a benign, oozing, sore, but growing on me nonetheless. Who’s with me? The newbie shows no fear calling out NeNe Leakes, and she may (almost) make me find Kenya Moore to be not as Krayonce as I once thought…ALMOST. This week, Claudia tackles yet another housewives nightmare vacay, and I think she’s spot on in her assessments.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Claudia begins, “WHEW! What trip! First of all I’d like to thank Demetria [McKinney] for inviting us all down to Puerto Rico for her do-over. And honey, what a do-over it was! The rooms were cute and cozy, the weather was amazing, and the pina coladas were fantastic! And on top of all that I really got to know Demetria a little more, and I just adore her. And of course like always I had a great time with Kenya and Cynthia [Bailey]. Those two really know how to have fun, and I appreciate their laid back and easy going demeanor. Our time at the pool was fun — especially watching Kenya attempt to speak both Italian and broken Spanish to our bartender in an attempt to wrangle up some local cuties!”
