Maksim Chmerkovskiy sure likes to keep us guessing. The dancing pro returned to Dancing With the Starsafter taking off a couple of seasons off, only to win the coveted mirror ball trophy, and then hinting that he may not be returning to the ABC mega-hit.
But that was not the only surprise on this season’s finale. Head Judge, Len Goodman also seemed to hint that he would not be returning to the show, to the shock and surprise of his fellow judges and viewers at home.
That is a whole lot of hinting for one hour of reality TV. Not to mention those hints could turn the show upside down!
So now that we are heading towards the new season premiere, will Maks and Len both be back? Or is Maks aiming to take over the judges table?
We kick things off with the twins arriving today! This brings the Biermann family total to lucky number 19! Er, I mean, 8. Kim and Kroy are heading to the hospital and saying goodbye to everyone as if they’re going for pizza and will be back in an hour. Brielle was like “Later, I’m taking a nap”. I’m assuming this milestone has become uneventful since Kim has literally been to this rodeo 37 times before.
We are then treated to a montage of pictures that are essentially selfies, selfies and more selfies. I mean, who kisses your husband and takes a selfie at the same time? With your eyes open? Totally normal. Not weird at all. Just when I start to think the entire show will be Kim narrating over selfies, we get a glance at their dream house finally finished. Slowly my mind starts drifting off thinking how much are the property taxes, hell, even the monthly electric bill – and we see that it’s 17,000 square feet of pure of Kim Zolciak. She’s done Julia Sugarbaker proud. Exhibit A: The candy cane room, an ode to a red-striped couch. Um, OK.
Of course, when I say current events, I mean how Farrah thinks she could save Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson‘s marriage, how Fox News practically admitted they’re out to get her, and how Farrah “dabbles” with businessmen. Surely no one expected anything deep or relevant to the real world, right?
A judge ruled that Kai Patterson can stay in the Gorga house for another 17 days if he coughs up $25,000. According to the Gorga attorney, Patterson owes them more than $180,000. So, the eviction proceedings are delayed for a few more days.
The two sides went back and forth and Gorga’s attorney made it clear that Melissa and Joe want the eviction done as quickly as possible so they can move back into the mansion! The Gorgas want to get back in the house and enroll their kids in school for the upcoming year. Hmm..guess that “Dream Home” isn’t happening anytime soon.
Dr. Terry Dubrow makes his living — and what a living, have you seen their house!?!? — making the people of Orange County and L.A. more beautiful. But according to the good doctor, his wife does not need his expertise in plastic surgery.
You would think, having a very successful plastic surgeon as a husband would have its fair share of benefits. Hello?!?! Free plastic surgery! Most people would jump at the chance. But not, Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow.
Apparently her beauty, body and lack of wrinkles is God-given. I know, it makes me hate her just a little bit too.
Nothing about this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County shocked me. Until everyone opens their eyes and figures out that Tamra Barney is to blame for every single (ok, maybe not every single one, but pretty darn close) relationship problem in Orange County, it will be more of the same. Tamra lies, drama ensues, Tamra denies, rinse and repeat.
The newcomers, Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek, have Tamra‘s lying pot stirring ways figured out, but Heather Dubrow is forever stuck in her own self-righteous fantasy world. Heather’s too busy blowing everything out of proportion and bellyaching about Shannon “yelling” at her to see what Tamra has done. Le sigh.
In her blog, Shannon bemoaned, “It is nice to see Vicki have compassion for me. What is disturbing is Tamra not taking responsibility for starting all of this nonsense between Heather and I.” I, for one, am extremely disappointed that Vicki Gunvalson failed to call out the liarface this week. Vicki knew Tamra was lying – and she kept mum! Grrr!
