"I get introduced to the group because Alexis [Belino] brings me to a party and Alexis, at the time, most of them don’t like Alexis," Lydiatells WetPaint. "So you’re walking in and they automatically don’t like me before I opened my mouth. So that was an uphill battle at first."
"I thought I was going to get along with Gretchen, but she was the coldest to me when I joined the group. I have no idea why," Lydia adds. Surprisingly it was Heather Dubrow who was the most receptive. "Most of the girls have been nice. Heather’s taken me under her wing and given me lots of advice."
Prime example of the antics and relations that I want more of:
Thanks to the tanning, clothing and hair "emergencies" suffered by her two adult daughters, Harvin and Meyer Eadon, every month, Virginia Kolb is feeling more Big Broke Atlanta than Big Rich Atlanta. The woman looks like she needs a grey goose martini (straight up with a lemon twist) while paying bills and reviewing Harvin and Meyer's spending habits.
Apparently,Harvin and Meyer each receive a weekly allowance of $1,000 from Virginia. Must be nice, right? Then, there's a separate fund for Harvin and Meyer to pull from if a killer sale happens an emergency strikes, haha. When Virginia calls attention to the fact that the sisters spent over $7,000 on "emergencies" the month prior, Meyer cries, "It's a full-time job trying to look good!" And here I thought the only hair emergencies in Atlanta involved a dustpan and broom.
Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough go of things as the first Housewife onDancing With The Stars. She's been plagued by harsh critiques over her wooden dancing and an inability to loosen up with her partner, Gleb Savchenko. Lisa is now having trouble keeping up with the physical pace of the show!
Lisa fainted during rehearsal last week citing an exhausting week with lots of travel and press responsibilities. "By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around – let's just say I was exhausted and everything felt off," she writes in her People blog. "Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out."
Lisa discovered she has a viral infection, along with exhaustion. "I am still fighting the bug and feeling under the weather but I am staying in the game as long as they say I can. And I will give it my best!"
Moving on, Kyle Richards has not had an easy season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She accused former friend Lisa of organizing a smear campaign against her at the reunion. She claims off-camera arguments with Lisa are the true cause of their break-up, although she wouldn't name the subject of those disagreements. Why are all Kyle's issues "off camera"? Isn't that convenient!
Following the disgraceful Real Housewives of New Jersey brawl that took place during filming for season five, local business owners are complaining that RHONJ not only destroyed their facilities but may be harming their reputation!
"Yes, a fight broke out, but we're not happy about it," Jenntold the Ridgewood Patch, adding that other local business owners were also unhappy about the latest embarrassment to have occurred while filming for the show. Following incidents in previous years the show has been banned from other local establishments.
Last night was the first installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kenya Moore lived in the hot seat this reunion as she got it from all the ladies (even Andy Cohen!), so that must explain why she was constantly fanning herself. Reunions By Krayonce!
This whole reunion could be photo-capped with the fantastic facial expressions of both Phaedra Parks and Krayonce. Everybody knows a picture is worth 1000 words. Both ladies threw shade at each other up one side and down the other, but Phaedra and her legalese definitely trumped Miss WHO-S-A. Sorry!
Kenya brought two accessories besides a full arsenal of nonsense: a fan and illusion netting. Illusion netting!
Girl was also shades of radioactive orange not found in nature that only seemed to glow more and more ominously as the snark got heaped on her in spades. Kenya was twisting like a tornado trying to twirl her way out of the insults. As Phaedra pointed out, that fan was a weak defense and she better have something stronger if she wants to battle!
Last night Duck Dynasty's Robertson family hit the red carpet in Vegas for the Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony. Korie, Willie, Jessica and Miss Kay's favorite son, Jep, were looking fab and Tweeting about their big night out and we couldn't wait for the weekly roundup to share these!
Korie (wearing Sue Wong) and Jessica shared several Tweets from their night – including backstage shots with former American IdolKelly Clarkson.
Sheryl Crow Tweeted that her son is a huge fan of the show (he has the hat to prove it), but she was too shy to approach them! "I saw @williebosshog from #DuckDynasty and I was too star struck to say hi! My son will kill me! #ACMspic.twitter.com/yZnxmzUo06."
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives which focused on a throwback party for Drita D'avanzo. Not surprisingly, the women went out with a bang–and of course, a brawl! When it comes to Karen Gravano, Ramona Rizzo, Carla Facciolo, and Renee Graziano, I think the women have grown a bit since seasons past. For me,Big Angis always on point with her advice. As for Love Majewski, she seriously frightened me when she said she wanted to go "bath salts zombie face-eating" on Carla. Chills!
Ramona and Karen are shopping for some '80s clothes for Drita's birthday bash. While looking through the acid-washed jeans and sequins, they rehash Karen's pre-nup party. Karen promises her friend that she wasn't trying to bash her wedding with the party, and the two become concerned that Love is going to beat up Carla at Drita's party. Karen thinks she'll be able to wrangle her friend so the night won't end with someone in an ambulance and someone else in handcuffs…and she knows how bad a night like that is from experience!
Carla is meeting with her soon-to-be-ex-husband Joe so they can discuss their divorce proceedings. She's not as concerned about their break-up as she is about Love's gossip. Joe is floored to find out that Love thinks he and his father stole her angel wings logo. Carla tells him about Drita's birthday party, and he urges her not to get involved in the ladies' cattiness. After all, she's a mother! Joe gives good advice, but I'll be surprised if Carla actually heeds it.
