Oh, man. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting exhausted for, and by, Shannon Beador – and I’m possibly one of the few who still really likes this wacky woman! Just watching her maneuver through the painful storyline she’s put on display this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County makes me want to lie down and take a long nap. Where’s the promise of more “upbeat” scenes with Shannon and family? Where’s the “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow? Toto, we aren’t in Kansas anymore!
In her blog this week, Shannon once again explains – and explains, and explains – why she was frustrated with husband David at Meghan Edmonds’ game night, why she gave Meghan the side eye (but NOT the judgy eye!) about Botox treatments, and how marriage counseling has put her marriage “on the fast track to healing.”
Before traveling to Tahiti our unfortunate Housewives are forced to take part in a couples game night hosted by Meghan. Because Meghan takes her job as being a HashtagCoolStepMom very seriously, Hayley, her 17-year-old stepdaughter is involved in the planning of said party. Meghan, confusing a grownup party with her own Candy Land Princess-themed birthday party, went to Party City and bought balloons and giant bags of candy. If Heather Dubrow were planning this, she’d hire a French chocolatier to hand-craft custom-flavored truffles decorated with the family insignia. Alas, this is Meghan we’re dealing with so Blow Pops it is.
Andy offered his condolences on the death of Lee Ann Edmonds Horton. “It was not a sudden death but it was a tragic death,” said Meghan. “Everybody’s feeling a lot of pain and grieving in their own way. We’re trying to celebrate her life and look forward to the future and just really cherish who she was.”
Last night’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta started with the tail end of a plan so perfect that I can’t imagine anything ever going wrong. As y’all recall, the previous episode ended with Khadiyah being ambushed at a record label party co-hosted by Yung Joc exes (and new allies) Karlie Redd and Sina. It’s always a brilliant idea to try to instigate a fight with your ex-boyfriend’s current girlfriend at a party to market for your new your boyfriend, right? Karlie and Sina brag and laugh about riling up KD, but Karlie forgot that her new boyfriend Lyfe Jennings was witnessing the entire debacle. He’s quick to remind her. Lyfe has legal issues, and what if he had to jump in and defend her? He could end up back in hot water! All Karlie took away from that conversation was that Lyfe would defend her honor. Geez.
Margeaux is beyond peeved that she got tricked into a photo shoot by Stevie J. who was trying to get back at Nikko for his antics with Mimi Faust. Having thought she was forging a friendship with Joseline Hernandez, Margeaux goes to the Puerto Rican princess to make sense of the situation. Joseline starts going off on Margeaux and how she fortunate she is to be working with Stevie. She belittles Margeaux for still tending bar and invites her (to put it nicely) to come bleep her bleep if Margeaux has a problem with her. Margeaux finally gets the fuss everyone has been making–this is the crazy lady people warned her about! Margeaux cites Joseline’s anger as being caused by Stevie’s evident love for Mimi before calmly leaving the scene. Smart girl…she clearly watched last season’s reunion.
Khloe Kardashian has always been the most outspoken of the Kardashian siblings. But is she taking it too far this time? In a new interview and photo spread for Complex magazine, Khloe talks her divorce from Lamar Odom, sisterhood, Kimye, Kris Jenner‘s sexytimes, Caitlyn’s new life, and more!
Posing in a collection of scandalous lingerie and swimsuits, Khloe has nothing to hide – literally. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who still lives with reclusive brother Rob, describes herself as a lion and says of her family “These are my cubs.” Khloe swears she’ll do anything to defend them, from twitter fights with Kanye West‘s ex to publicly defending their kontroversial choices. “Don’t f–k with my cubs ’cause I will rip your head off,” she warns in the opening quote of the interview. Indeed.
The newbie Housewife borrowed Tamra Judge‘s hairdresser (the man behind many a Bravo head), Julius Michael to dye her locks from OC blonde to teenaged dream pink. Aaaahhh… Meghan, honey, no matter how hard you try and how immaturely you act, you’re still a 30-something grown-ass woman!
“So after this week, one thing is clear to me: the sentiment of ‘forgiveness’ is lost on some of us,” begins Dorinda. “To me, it was apparent when I tried to apologize to Heather at Kristen [Taekman’s] Smile Train Denim and Diamonds event.” After praising Kristen’s success in throwing her first ever charity event – “she really presided over the function with the grace and elegance of a queen” – Dorinda launches into why she apologized to Heather in the first place. “I thought it’d be a good time to take Heather aside and try to clear the air, because we were both just getting more and more aggravated by the misunderstandings and clashes we’d had throughout the season and, in those situations, time is NEVER on your side.”
