Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies ventured into unseen territory. It was truly a trip to OZ. There were sparkling pageant lights and shimmering runways, food that looked like vaginas and not food, beautiful music, and one Wicked Witch from the West stealing The Good Witch's crown and being sweet as a mid-summer Georgia peach. What was this strange world of successes and peace? Better watch out ladies, a twirl is a'comin and it might just drop a mansion right on your heads. And your little dogs too…
Things begin at The Bailey Agency. Cynthia Bailey is whirling around putting up flyers about the Miss Renaissance pageant. It's happening like now! And who should waltz through the door but a giant bottle of ketchup and mustard! Oh no, just Kenya Moore being sweet and kind and wearing a strange combination of red and yellow (or my TV is colorblind). I guess it was summery…
Kenya has her little dog with her and also a little model who has big dreams of Vogue covers and barely covers her butt crack in skintight zebra pants and a crop top. Kenya is mentoring this poor girl. I'm guessing she got the come-to-Jesus lecture about coochie cracks, which is why she wore that…
As you recall, Jay and Gretchen had a very public he-said-she-said over some pretty nasty rumors (and pictures, if I recall correctly). Gretchen sued Jay for defamation, among other things, claiming she lost job opportunities based on the lies he was spreading about her in the media. Now Jay wants a re-trial. Good luck with that, buddy!
TMZ reports that Adrienne has had several talks with the producers about her desire to leave the show. Season 4 is slated to begin filming in April, and although none of the cast members have signed their official contracts yet, it's a given that Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville will return.
Well, well, well…this certainly took longer than I thought it would! Finally, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin is chatting up a storm about the state of Bethenny Frankel's marriage. Viewers watched the demise of former besties' friendship, and Jill has been grasping at straws to stay relevant. It's humorous (and slightly sad) to watch.
The brash redhead has practically made a career based on talking about her nemesis and what went wrong in their relationship. Jill will do or say just about anything to get her name back in the media. I've really never seen anything like it! Of course, it's no shock that she'd be adding her two cents on Bethenny's divorce from Jason Hoppy. I'm just surprised it took so long!
Big Rich Atlanta has been on the air for a few weeks now and one cast member is trying hard to emerge as the "star" of the show. So it surprised us this morning to see that Ashlee Wilson-Hawn is announcing that the Style Network lied on her cast bio page!
Last night during The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we snarked during our Live-Tweeting, wondering why Ashlee wasn't on the scene for Miss Cynthia's Renaissance Pageant. We joked, "Wait, why isn't Miss Big Rich Atlanta there? She's supposedly the most sought-after pageant coach? #rhoa".
The Tweet was simply a reference to Ashlee's bio on Style. Apparently she's never read her own cast blurb on the network website.
On last Sunday's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta there was pageant drama! Yes – more pageant drama, but thankfully no donkey booty nonsense.
Cynthia Bailey unceremoniously fired Porsha Stewart from her volunteer position on the Miss Renaissance pageant because Porsha apparently wasn't working hard enough for free. In her Bravo blog Porsha expresses her surprise at what happened behind her back and doesn't really understand why Cynthia was upset with her in first place!
Upon arriving at The Bailey Agency for a pageant meeting, Porsha says she didn't know Cynthia was annoyed until she walked through the door – then she was perturd! "When I sat down and saw the look on Ms. Bailey’s face, I knew something was up. Little did I know it was some mess about me not wanting complete strangers over to my house for a business meeting for her pageant."
"I must say I threw Kordell’s name in the mix to add to my response, but in actuality I made the decision not to have it in my home on my own. I sincerely felt if she didn't want to meet at her office, fine, and I even offered to pay for lunch elsewhere anytime, but to turn my home into an office? Um, no. It was something I thought was a small and private conversation with Ms. Bailey as a friend. How quickly I learned that all things discussed in private aren't so private with her," Porsha hints.
Sure, Kim Kardashian is super annoying, self-absorbed, and mind-numbingly vapid, but she sure does post some entertaining pictures on her Instagram. Case in point? The picture above, which she aptly captioned "Bo Derek braids." Let's discuss for a moment, shall we? Ignoring the fact that Bo Derek is likely extremely insulted (and rightfully so), I am so distracted by her make-up. And does that ring say "couture?" Anything but…she looks like she belongs on Solid Gold. Even Kanye West is so embarrassed that he has to hide his face. Oddly enough, I am kind of feeling his gold studded plaid flannel. I know, I know. It's probably just the only thing in the picture I can slightly compliment.
I've got some more Kimmie K. pictures for you after the jump…as well as an update with Kim's divorce proceedings with Kris Humphries. It's neverending. Happy weekend, y'all!
