Brandi Glanville on Entertainment Tonight

Brandi Glanville is a wealth of information about everyone else’s problems. Which is a welcome change from her complaining ad nauseum about her own! The former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star dished on the dramatic lives of her three remaining Bravo friends, Kristen Taekman, Kim Richards, and Yolanda Foster

Beginning with Kim, who just avoided jail time for one of her arrests, and has been in and out of rehab, Brandi confirms they are still close.

Lizzie Rovsek

Lizzie Rovsek, the Real Housewives of Orange County voice of reason, shared her thoughts on the drama surrounding Meghan King Edmonds and Vicki Gunvalson in her blog. As always, Lizzie was fair and, a rarity, sane.

Lizzie admitted she likes Meghan because she’s strong-willed – “It takes a lot to take on Vicki,” said Lizzie. – and stands up for herself.

“However, I think this is a very sensitive subject,” added Lizzie. “We are talking about a life threatening illness and the love of Vicki‘s life, Brooks. I don’t have someone in my immediate life battling cancer, so I don’t know how I would personally react if someone wanted to tell me how I should be treating cancer. I understand that there are alternative ways to treat cancer – and there are very individualized treatment plans out there. I can see how it would be personal.”

Dancing with the Stars Season 21

ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 21 stars this morning on Good Morning America. Most of the cast had been revealed ahead of time, but there were a few surprises.

Much to our surprise, Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak isn’t the only reality TV star dancing for the mirror ball trophy this season. Braxton Family Values and Tamar & Vince star Tamar Braxton is competing against Kim.

As for the pro dancers, one of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros, Anna Trebunskaya, is back. Unfortunately, she has been paired with Gary Busey. Why can’t I have nice things?!? Also disappointing, Peta Murgatroyd is out for the season due to an ankle injury. Peta was supposed to dance with “Honey I’m Good” singer Andy Grammer. He’ll dance with Allison Holker instead. Check out the complete list below and let us know if you plan to watch.

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip that started from this tropic port, aboard this giant ship. The mate was a mighty sailing man, the skipper brave and sure. The newbies were a crazy bunch looking for a bitchy resting face cure. On last night’s Below Deck, Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow proved once again that she is a whiny horndog who is used to getting her way, Don Abenante proved once again that he is a whiny meathead who is too good to use a mop, and Connie Arias proved that she may be the only semi-normal, halfway likable newbie aboard Captian Lee Rosbach’s Eros. 

The episode begins as Bosun Eddie Lucas and Chief Stew Kate Chastain summon Rocky and Emile Kotze down from the radar, warning both that it could fry their brains or at the very least knock them off the yacht and send them toppling into the ocean. Are these people for real? Eddie then threatens to fire Emile if he does anything that stupid again. Rocky gets a more passive aggressive but similar speech from Kate. Luckily, Captain Lee is going to have the final word. Rocky smirks as she’s scolded and then complains that everyone is making a mountain out of a mole hill. The charter guests are still recovering from the foam party and have decided to sleep in, which makes Kate very grateful.

Shannon-Beador-Family-Hawaii-Real-Housewives-of-Orange-County-001

Shannon Beador is living it up in Hawaii with her family, posting this photo on Instagram just yesterday. Before relaxing on vaycay though, Shannon took some time to reflect about this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County, particularly taking issue with those of us out here who have “criticized” her for the negativity she’s brought to TV screens across the country this season. 

Beginning with her take on Heather Dubrow’s luncheon, Shannon admits, “Arguing always puts a pit in my stomach. The tail end of Vicki [Gunvalson] and Meghan [Edmonds’] argument at Heather‘s new home was very uncomfortable. I’m not sure that the luncheon table was the most appropriate place to bring up the topic of Brooks and his illness, but Meghan definitely has a pattern for saying what’s on her mind when she wants to say it.” Siding with Vicki about keeping one’s nose out of other peoples’ medical records, Shannon empathizes, “I understand why Vicki is upset because the idea is so preposterous.”

Kristen Taekman crazy jumpsuit

Kristen Taekman has learned a lot from Real Housewives Of New York and she’s here to tell you that pretty is no longer dumb – even if she is dumbfounded by Josh’s wandering internet habits what happens on reality TV. 

The most important thing Kristen has learned on Housewives, is aptly, “Know when to walk away. There are so many times where I wish I had just walked away.” Lessons Kristen will hopefully apply to her personal life as well…

brandi glanville and sons

Kids do the darnedest things, don’t they? They grow up so fast, and if their parents are lucky, they’ll be excited to take over tasks that have become mundane to adults. Brandi Glanville is banking on this with her two sons (and let’s be honest, “bonus mom” LeAnn Rimes likely is too). She’s already got her boys trying new things that they no doubt find to be super cool when the rest of us are way over it…like pumping gas.

I remember being fifteen and having my dad show me how to pump gas because I was clueless. At the time, the lesson was much more exciting than the one about changing a flat tire or checking the oil…both of which I had to sit through (and master) before I was given the keys. However, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is going all out, allowing her twelve-year-old son to be responsible for filling up her car (this one??) with gas. Of course, I would imagine that with Brandi there is less supervision and more pretending to be Jessica Tandy in a scene from Driving Miss Daisy
