Some seasons, like this one, the only reason I turn on the premiere is to see my favorite pros dance. Luckily I always find a star or two to root for along the way. But my interest fades a little bit each time one of the pros I like to watch – Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, Kym Johnson, and Maks come to mind – leaves the show.
Nobody likes a borrower who tries to be a keeper! Case in point: Aviva Drescher who is being sued when she borrowed art work and decided it looked too pretty to let go of!
Remember how Aviva held an art viewing party at her brand new NYC townhouse? The apartment she purportedly rented solely for the purpose of filming for Real Housewives Of New York because the co-op board at her real apartment wouldn’t allow Bravo cameras on the premises. Well anyway, Aviva fancies herself a bit of an amateur curator and went on to install other works of borrowed art! But now she likes them so much she wants to keep some of them without paying!
Matthew Satz, a Hamptons-based artist, filed a suit against Aviva for $620,500. In June 2013, Satz says he loaned Aviva 5 paintings and hung them in her Upper West Side apartment in exchange for “some exposure” presumably of the RHONY kind and now he wants his artwork back.
NeNe Leakes will be starring in Broadway’s Cinderella as the evil stepmother – but Kenya Moore definitely won’t be heading to the Great White Way to check out her rival’s performance. Oh no, Kenya already knows NeNe is wicked!
“I think it’s perfect casting, I do,” Kenya said of NeNe being cast as the evil stepmother. As for how the two Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars are getting along during filming, Kenya admitted it’s not going so well!
There will never be another Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. I wish Mona Scott Young would just figure this out and spare us all of these L&HH franchises, but I know that will never happen. So, let’s just dive into the premiere of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.
We first meet Teairra Mari, a singer who signed with Def Jam when she was sixteen. No longer with the label, Teairra is determined to prove she’s still in it to win it when it comes to her music. Hazel-E is a former superstar publicist who left her high powered career to pursue her dream of being a rapper. She and Teairra are roommates, and they are catching up after some time apart. The love of Teairra’s life is Ray-J, and she reminds us that we may know him from a few songs and perhaps a tape or two. I love it. Teairra reveals that while the pair had an on-and-off relationship for nine years, she hasn’t seen or talked to Ray-J in eight months when she found out he was cheating. Hazel can’t believe they’ve been apart for so long, and I have to wonder what “roommates” go eight months without a gossip session or two. Sounds a bit staged to me. Ray-J has moved his new lady into his house without returning any of Teairra’s belongings, and she’s ready to rectify that situation.
The star, who is no stranger to a tumultuous love life and has been rumored to be linked to Bow Wow recently, reveals that this season viewers will see her focus on both love and business! Erica reveals that she is “transitioning from old ways to new ways.”
“I’m coming into my own,” Erica explains. “I think people will be able to accept it more because they’ve seen my growth from the beginning to now, and they’ve kinda got the point that I don’t hesitate on who I love, whether it’s a woman or a man. I love them, I’m in love with them, and that’s just what it is.”
“This week’s show really made me cry,” shared Dina. “I miss Luke so much, he left early in the season, so I think that’s why I look stressed and tired a lot too!”
Dina continued, “Luke was like my personal jester, no matter what was going on he could always make me laugh. He is truly a son to me and a brother to Lexi and I am hoping he finds what he is looking for back home. If nothing else I’m sure his mom is so happy to have her little boy back on her side of the pond, and like I said, my door will always be open to him (and any other stray that needs a home)!” Well, that explains the tacky hat, it must have been a stray.
Child bride and recent Couples Therapy alum, Courtney Stodden, penned an open letter recently, hoping to put some rumors to rest regarding her separation and reconciliation with her much older husband. In one of the most shocking revelations, Courtney claimed, ‘I wanted to be reckless and promiscuous’ while separated from Doug Hutchison.
