Some predict that in another decade or two, everyone will have a personal camera following them around at all times. You know, kind of like a Kardashian. Until then, we can tune into the the new reality show Fusion is airing soon (date to be announced), My Selfie Life, which plans to follow regular schmucks around while they snap pics and videos of “major” life moments. Fusion describes their 10-episode series as a “bold half-hour series where young Americans film themselves living through a life-changing moment as they journey towards adulthood and self-discovery.”
Fusion says their series will be told through the participants’ lens, and that’s what ultimately distinguishes it from current reality TV. This filming model hopes to tell stories “in the most authentic way” as in, “by people who know them by heart, captured in real time on their own devices, in their own words,” says Fusion Chief Programming Officer Wade Beckett. Episodes will focus on “turning point” experiences in peoples’ lives such as “tracking down lost love, beginning a sex change, ‘defeating’ an eating disorder, dealing with mental illness, and beginning an interfaith relationship.”
In her blog, Eileen Davidson addressed Lisa‘s texts and questioned why Kim gets to decide what can and what cannot be discussed on camera.
ICYMI, Lisa texted to Kim, “Be very careful or I will f-ck you up. You be nice to your sister, you believe her, and stop telling lies. In that order. You need to get wise. Brandi is not telling the truth. She is lying. I should have said that in that moment, but I didn’t want another Amsterdam to happen and it would have. Your behavior and the way you treat people is not okay. You are nasty and you need to be stopped now.” The threat aside, Eileen said the text was “right on.”
OK, I’m kidding. But seriously – where was this so-called 11th hour smoking gun we were supposed to be getting?! Can I get a RHOBH reunion refund? I was fully preparing myself for the news that Kim and Kingsley had gotten married in Vegas and were having a child using Brandi Glanville as a surrogate.
But no… apparently the big drama was Lisa Rinna had a momentary lapse where she morphed into Brandi and threatened to F–k Kim up via text. Wielding f-bombs and empty threats is hardly exciting news – Kim and Brandi do it habitually to the point that it’s the almost menopause mama who cried “F–k!”
On last night’s Dance Moms, the crew is still in Los Angeles, but this time everyone’s spirits are much higher. Of course, that comes to a screeching halt when they learn that they’ll be going up against the team that beat them on their previous trek out west. Jill is thrilled that Kendall will be launching her music career this go-round, but her daughter admits to her friends that’s it’s odd for her to be in the fore front. Kendall is excited about the opportunity, but she’s used to being in the background. Nia hopes their music videos won’t turn into a competition since they have such different styles, but she’s happy for her pal nonetheless.
The girls’ banter is interrupted when Abby Lee Miller says that it is time for the pyramid. Nia is on the bottom for her solo’s third place showing, followed by MacKenzie for being the group routine’s weakest link. She’s not applying the corrections given. JoJo rounds out the bottom, but Abby praises her for learning to keep her mouth closed. Maddie is in third (wait, what?) as her technique hasn’t been up to her normal standards due to her latest dancing gigs. Sure, dancing at the Grammys is amazing, but it doesn’t require the precision that Abby has been teaching her all along. Kalani is second, and Kira interjects to say that she and her daughter have been invited to a fashion show event. While she will be attending, Kalani has chosen to stay with the team. This pleases Abby, which should shock no one. Kendall is deservedly on top for her winning the overall high score with her solo. Abby reminds Kendall that she has a lot of work to do with her video so she’ll be relying on the other girls for assistance. Holly reminds Abby that Nia’s video is next week, so she will be focusing on that. Abby icily promises not to rely on Nia to help the team. Kalani and Maddi are granted dueling solos, and Abby announces that Maddie will be missing a day of rehearsals to perform on Ellen.
Andy starts off by mentioning last night’s episode of WWHL. I planned on transcribing it late last night but it was pretty mellow, so I skipped it. But on the show, Dr. Terry Dubrow made a remark about Bethenny and that he thought she was pretty naturally and he wouldn’t do any work on her but said she was a little skinny girl. And it didn’t seem like a huge deal at the time, but apparently it became a big deal as the day went on today. So, Andy brings it up and asks her about it. I do get that Bethenny is fed up – everyone has been obsessing her over her weight recently and it’s a little obnoxious.
Last Tuesday the ladies of RHONY celebrated the premiere of season 7 with a bash at OA Bar & Grill in Tribeca. And they had reason to celebrate: Zap2It reveals that ratings for this season are already great! Revamped RHONY scored 2.2 million viewers, which is double-digit growth from the season 6 premiere, and combined with part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, earned Bravo its best Tuesday night of 2015.
Adam Carolla‘s wife Lynette was the most recent guest on Brandi Glanville‘s Unfiltered podcast. The long-time acquaintances (and fellow podcasters) talked the good and bad of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, the reunion, season finale, and the Amsterdam trip, plus behind-the-scenes casting details, and vented about Brandi’s hypocritical co-stars and online “bullies.” They also chatted Celebrity Apprentice, which Adam also participated in. Brandi weighed in on how reality TV affects marriages, and the ladies gabbed about dating JR and divorce!
Immediately they start discussing the the season finale party. Lynette is unequivocally Team Brandi and was a fan from day 1. Lynette believes Brandi was “thrown under the bus” by Lisa Rinna during the whole Kim Richards needs an intervention conversation. “I never would have said it,” Brandi insists, blaming Rinna for twisting her words. “It’s like, that’s not what I said, you said it first! They even played it over [on the finale] but it’s like it never happened!”
