Did you expect them to quit their public bickering? Surely not! In case you missed it, Kathryn Dennis has been hurling Twitter insults at Thomas Ravenel, and T-Rav is returning the favor by accusing her of keeping him from the pair’s two very young children.
As the two publicly spar over parenthood and partying, it has Southern Charm’s collective fan base waiting in anticipation for the show’s third season. After his Godzilla versus Jesus comparison, Thomas is expanding on his response to Kathryn’s allegations that he’s an absent father who doesn’t pay child support. His side of the story? It’s all Kathryn’s fault, naturally!
In other Ashlee updates, the 25-year-old just announced to her engagement to Pete Malleo, who does Jiu Jitsu. Ashlee announced on twitter that she “said yes” to Pete’s proposal. “Thank you for such an amazing day @c3pete0 …I’m so excited for this next chapter of our lives.”
Eileen begins her blog reviewing the lunch hosted byKathryn Edwards, which took a wrong turn after the ghost of Kim Richards came to haunt the table. “I don’t think anyone expected lunch over at Kathryn’s house to be so emotional. Although, it seems that whenever Kim’s name is brought up, lots of buttons get pushed. When Kathryn broke down while divulging the details of her father’s suicide, I was heartbroken. She has been affected by a loved one’s addiction in the worst way imaginable…It was brave of her to be that vulnerable, and I’m honored she felt comfortable enough to bare her soul and cry.”
Brandi Glanville and Joanna Krupa are still embroiled in a defamation lawsuit after the malicious things Brandi spewed in public about Joanna and so far the case hasn’t settled. Brandi has griped many times about the money it’s costing her in legal fees to defend herself in the case. (Keeping nasty gossip to yourself is the free way to deal with this sort of thing, but that’s just what I’ve heard) Brandi keeps hoping that Joanna will come around and call the whole thing off because she’s like so sorry and shit!
Yesterday the two of them wound up on the same plane heading for Miami. Brandi quickly realized that Joanna was sitting just one row away and thought maybe they could call a truce. She Tweeted out, “I’m on a plane sitting one row apart from the pretty lady suing me – I think we should just have a glass of wine & hug it out Joanna Krupa.”
Ashley Darby is the youngest cast member of Bravo’s newest Real Housewives franchise: The Real Housewives of Potomac. Despite her pint-sized frame and youthful glow, she’s not afraid to take on the tough posse of etiquette-obsessed Potomac ladies she’s been cast alongside. I got a chance to chat with Ashley this week about everything from how it feels to debut on reality TV to why she’s a self proclaimed “adrenaline junkie!”
How are you feeling about the first episodes of RHOP? “Very excited. It’s surreal to see yourself on TV. It’s just about getting to know people, spending a lot of time together. There are always going to be some bumps in the road. Having spent as much time with them [the cast] as I did, I really feel like I know them well now. I actually consider them my friends – even though it did take some time. We are forming a foundation.”
Teresa Giudice’s prison memoir, Turning The Tables, is another best seller for the reality star. Even though her cookbooks have done well, we all weren’t too sure how this book would turn out after hearing some tidbits from her diary while she was still in prison.
It looks like Teresa put enough polish on the book, (and not as many fans boycotted supporting her as they said they would), because it’s on the top of two best seller lists! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Tweeted out this week that her memoir hit #2 on the NYT Best Seller list! “So excited to announce that Turning The Tables is officially a New York Times Best Seller, hitting the list at #2.”
Hmmm… is it me or does Lisa Vanderpump seem to be backpedaling a bit? After openly calling out Yolanda Foster for discrepancies, Lisa’s blog seems to treat the Lyme-afflicted Yolanda with kid gloves. Let’s hope that treatment is also holistic, and organic, and from Whole Foods!
“Bitter words were voiced against Kim from Rinna calling her a rabid dog, which is hard to compute. It’s a year later, Kim has made great headway…” insists Lisa. “Kyle’s loyalty to her sister will supersede any wish to be involved in negativity. That is why she left the table and, as a friend, I dutifully followed.” Maybe Lipsa was having difficulty separating Kim’s behaviors from Kingsley’s?
About not claiming Kenya as her best friend, Cynthia maintains, “I don’t really feel like I was backing away. The bestie word came up – and we’re not best friends, we’re not BFFs, we’re not besties, we’re not any of those things. We’re really really good friends – very close. I love Kenya. We have never referred to each other as best friends.”
