Oh gracious! I wasn't even a minute in to watching last night's premiere of the original Love & Hip Hop when I realized it had gone by way of Atlanta. It's over stylized and filmed as if it's rap video, not a reality show. It's going to be a long season. I'll be honest, it was hard to keep up with all the drama, but I think it's going to be eventful…and I think we saw it all on L&HHA with just a different cast of characters.
As the episode starts, we're introduced to Tahiry Jose who claims to be a video vixen, model, and actress. Right now, she's also a waitress. However, even she knows that she's most famous for being Joe Budden's ex-girlfriend. She left their five year relationship because Joe wasn't handling his business properly. Joe loves being in the public eye, and he gained quite a following when he would post videos of Tahiry on You Tube. He misses Tahiry and hopes that the two can work on developing a strong friendship. The pair is meeting for lunch, and two things are evident: he likes riling her up, and Tahiry isn't a fan of Joe's shenanigans. Tahiry wonders why Joe so desperately needs to be friends with her…can't he share all his life stories with his new lady? Joe just wants to keep Tahiry on a string for when he needs her. The lunch ends with Tahiry screaming at him and shoving the table so hard that her sangria topples. I have to hand it to that one extra playing the role of restaurant patron number two had the acting sense to appear shocked at the couple's tirade while all the other extras just ate their free lunches and pretended like nothing was happening.
Much to Melissa Whitman's dismay. The West Virginia resident, who lives across the street from where BUCKWILD was partially taped, had a lot to say to the Charleston Gazette about the production crew, foul-mouthed cast, and staged aspects of the show.
According to Melissa, the BUCKWILD crew was obnoxious, inconsiderate, and constantly jammed her street with their black SUVs. Also, they taped (with their bright flood lights) during all hours of the day and night and several of the scenes were staged and/or reshot. Melissa added, "All of this was coaxed, coerced, scripted, or whatever."
An example of how the scenes were reshot and tweaked: "The big moving-in scene was shot two weeks after the girls were already living there."
Reza Farahan and his two favorite Persian Princesses, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Lilly Ghalichi, hit the red carpet with a slew of other reality TV stars on Monday. Yesterday was Day 2 of NBCUniversal's '2013 Winter TCA Tour', held at the Langham Hotel.
Casualty of wealth and privilege! While on a winter ski vacation just before New Year's,Vicki Gunvalson had one of her classic klutz moments and took a tumble. Poor Vicki ended up hurting her neck in the process.
In all seriousness the Real Housewives of Orange County star had quite the harrowing experience. TMZ reports she went barreling down a ski slope in Park City, UT after snowboarder abruptly cut her off. Vicki fell face first into the snow and got a serious case of whiplash in the process!
ApparentlyLisa Vanderpump is also in a fight of her own – with Bravo! According to RadarOnline, Lisa has pissed off Bravo execs royally by appearing on Good Morning America to promote her spinoff.
Bravo, which is owned by NBCMedia, only allows their stars to appear on NBC or it's affiliates shows to promote their various misadventures, products, and television exploits, but Lisa apparently went out on her own to appear on ABC.
Tonight fans of Lisa Vanderpump get a double dose! The saucy British queen's spinoff Vanderpump Rules premieres tonight. Who is excited besides me? Or maybe just me, but who cares!! I'm like a Bierberette when it comes to Ms. Vanderpump; meaning I'm sort of overzealously in love with her to the point of ridiculous. Anyway…
In preparation for tonight's big show, Stassi Schroeder is dishing on what viewers can expect and why there is so much drama at Sur!
"Working [at Sur] is so different," Stassi tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Everyone wants to be actors, writers, models and singers." And apparently they also want to be dating and hooking up with each other. In the beginning of the seasons all of the major cast members (save for Lisa, of course) are in relationships with each other, but unfortunately it looks like the reality TV curse is applied and those relationships don't last!
Well isn't this classy! Apparently there was a lot of hot action at the Love & Hip Hop premiere party. Stars Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena reportedly got pretty sauced up and then hooked up in the bathroom of the Chinese restaurant Cafeteria.
The NY Post reports that following the big party at Kiss & Fly the duo departed and went for midnight snacks. One might say they had the sampler platter. A witness says the two went into the bathroom and refused to emerge so security was called to make sure things were digesting well.
Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta we learned valuable lessons can be gained from reality TV. Namely how NOT to get a man to marry you.Kenya Moore illustrated that point in the best way possible when she used every man repellant trick in the book to try and bamboozle Walter into dropping down on one knee. Do not beg a man on national TV to marry you – especially when the show you're on falls into the "reality TV" category. #HowNotToBehaveAndWhy
Things begin with NeNe Leakes,Gregg, and some not so subtle hints. Given that they're moving to LA so NeNe can hit the big time in Hollywood, Gregg has fished out their wedding champagne flutes and poured some wine and then Oooohhh… baby! Bryson shows up with his new daughter Bri'Asia and she is too cute. Awww… babies are even making me overlook NeNe's really unflattering, heftybag-looking brown jumpsuit.
NeNe and Gregg double-team Bryson with a Come To Jesus talk about getting a job, earning his own money and not neglecting his responsibilities. I personally love when NeNe and Gregg lecture – they need to do some sort of motivational speaking summit for parents of the wayward, cause they are hilarious. NeNe discusses her own past being a single mom at 21 and how it helped her get her act together. Hopefully the same can be done for Bryson!
