Last week Kim Zolciak‘s oldest daughter Brielle Biermann turned 20. Yes – it’s hard to imagine that when we met Brielle on Real Housewives Of Atlanta she was like 12, but now she’s old enough to have plastic surgery and get married.
To celebrate her mini-me turned BFF‘s birthday, Kim threw Brielle a surprise party at LA’s Fig & Olive – and made sure they wore practically matching outfits.
“Happy Birthday to my angel @briellebiermann I just can’t believe it!!!” instagrammedKim. “I just can’t believe it was 20 years ago today I became your mom! Scared out of my mind yet so excited! Had I known how easy it would have been to raise you I certainly would of had a lot less anxiety! I’m extremely proud of the leader you are, the heart you have and share, the love you have for your siblings, the respect, loyalty, and commitment to your family and above it all how you always have remained TRUE to you!! Keep shining!!! Can’t wait to squeeze you!! Love you oh so much!!! #HappyBirthdayBrielle #TheBig20.”
“I hear the train a comin’, it’s rollin’ round the bend…” and it is called the HOT MESS EXPRESS! That’s right folks, your favorite trust funders and Peter Pans are returning for a new season of Southern Charm, and legal eagle Craig Conover is dishing all about his co-stars and their journey to Bravo-lebrity status.
One of the most endearing things about Craig (in my opinion) is that he is very loyal…and he can’t keep his mouth shut. Whether he’s defending Kathryn Dennis’ honor, competing with Shep Rose, or lunching with Cameran Eubanks, chances are he’s going to say something that could potentially get him in hot water with his friends. I’ll be interested to see if any of them have opinions on Craig’s recent comments. Oh, and side note, our little Craig is growing up so quickly. He’s finally (FINALLY!) taken the bar exam!
I still have no idea if Bethenny Frankel actually ever dated Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, but the rumored former flames did hang out when Bethenny made a visit to the Modern Family set. Both of them posted the same photo to mark the occasion.
I don’t know if the visit was social or if Bethenny has been bitten by the acting bug and will be making a cameo appearance on a future episode.
Without even seeing one preview for the Vanderpump Rules reunion, I can already get a feel for where they’ll be going with the arguments questions whenever it airs and that’s because the reunion seating chart was posted on the Bravo website. Sure, everyone does have to sit somewhere, but you can really tell which story lines are being prioritized and who is on which side based on the seating chart.
One thing that stands out to me is that LaLa Kent doesn’t have a spot on the chart, but that wasn’t super surprising since she just peaced out from the show without saying a word and has been shitting on the show and its cast ever since. However, pics of her from Scheana Marie Shay’s Snapchat posts show she was present- so I guess that was a surprise to Andy Cohen as well?
I cannot be the only one who is bothered by the fact that “gay rumors” about Kandi Burruss are being treated as a “scandalous” story line on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Why is the possibility that someone is gay or that she has experimented with her sexuality something that has to be scandalized? Porsha Williams took the heat for Phaedra Parks who first said that Kandi has a sexual history with Porsha’s BFF Shamea Morton and it just turned into a super ugly exchange when they met up to discuss it all.
I would understand why any married person would be offended by rumors that she had an affair, but I don’t get why there’s some sort of added sting to that because Shamea is a woman. I’m over these reality stars justifying themselves by saying “funny” things about how they are “strictly dickly” and whatever other puns to refute the rumors. Just say they’re not true if they are not true. There’s no need to scandalize someone’s possible exploration of their sexuality. And to make matters even worse, Porsha and Kandi’s attempt to talk out the misunderstanding turned into a lot of yelling and accusations. Not only is it a total mess between friends, but it’s really brought on a bigger issue in the eyes of many viewers who are offended by the complete lack of sensitivity when it comes to conveying and marketing this story line.
