Tonight begins the reputedly epic reunion where Vicki is confronted with details about her relationship to Brooks Ayers and what she knows about his cancer. Andy Cohen described it as a “very adult” reunion, explaining that although there was drama and arguing, there were no tantrums and screaming. Despite, obviously, nothing was resolved between Vicki and the other ladies.
Whoa! All is certainly not fair in love and war, especially if you’re the biggest star of this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County. And I’m not talking about the actual housewives. Brooks Ayers, who’s cancer storyline stole everyone’s thunder – and annoyed viewers to no end – this year, is stirring the pot a little more with his recent trash talk about ex-girlfriend, Vicki Gunvalson.
While Vicki cryptically told Andy Cohen on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live that “it was a lot of things” contributing to their breakup, Brooks says that he and Vicki sought counseling way back in March to intervene in their rocky relationship. “I said, ‘Listen, we need some third-party help. I’m not gonna be influenced by you,'” Brooks divulged to E! News.
In case you’ve been stuck under a rock for the past three weeks, Kim and her pro partner, Tony Dovolani, were forced to withdraw from Dancing with the Stars when Kim suffered a mini stroke and wasn’t medically cleared to fly from Atlanta to Los Angeles for the live show. Kim begged, pleaded, and organized an online petition to get back on the show to no avail. But, still squeezing, Kim shared video today from her last rehearsal with Tony, adding, “I miss dancing!!”
Congratulations are in order for Roger Mathews and Jenni Farley. After a 3 year engagement, the Jersey Shore couple tied the knot yesterday in front of family and friends. But that’s not all. Roger and JWoww, who welcomed their first child, Meilani, in July 2014, shared exciting news with their wedding guests – they’re expecting baby #2 in May 2016.
Following the wedding, Roger and JWoww shared with E! News, “By far one of the best days of our lives outside of Meilani being born. So blessed to have our daughter share this day with us!”
In the case of Lauren Manzo as her wedding approaches so too does the nagging about when she will be carrying on the illustrious Manz0-Scalia lineage and fulfilling her role and Caroline and Denise’s grandchild vessel. Caroline and Denise, henceforth, “Team Grandma” are on a two-pronged mission to get Lauren pregnant even if they have to tie her up in an Italian receiving blanket and inject Vito’s sperm into her with a meat tenderizer. Yes – it’s that drastic.
On last night’s Sister Wives, announcements were abundant. There were announcements on top of announcements interrupting announcements. But hey, at least we were spared a Brown party! After a quick daddy-daughter getaway, Kody Brown is back home with his four wives and umpteen children. Christine giggles with glee as Robyn reveals that they are filing the adoption papers with family court. Meri remains dour on the sofa, and Christine is concerned about a judge’s opinion on plural marriage. If Meri were any more checked out of this situation, she’d be a library book. She’s making Janelle look like a cheerleader!
Kody and his wives head to their attorney’s office where Sobbin’ Robyn cries tears of joy to learn that if this works out, her kids will be issued new birth certificates with Kody’s name listed as their father. Kody tries to high-five Meri–this wouldn’t have been possible without her–and she’s all, “that’s cool.” Does no one in the family realize Meri has become nothing more than a mute placeholder? I could swear she rolls her eyes when Christine says that Kody is a great person for Robyn to have as her kids’ dad.
My friends always make fun of me for my obsession with Bagel Bites. While I fancy myself a foodie, I’ve been known to eat those bite-sized morsels of deliciousness for dinner up to four nights in a row (10 a night from the forty pack…duh!). “Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at suppertime…when pizza’s on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime!” I think I now know how Ramona Singer feels.
For me, it’s always time for Bagel Bites. For the Real Housewives of New York star, it’s apparently always Turtle Time! She doesn’t need a tropical vacay, a bottle of Pinot Grigio, or even a pool to show off her bikini body, as evidenced by a recent Instagram post.
It’s July 1: five months before Teresa’s expected release and eight months before Joe begins his sentence. Joe is fixing Milania’shair while he reflects on becoming “Mr. Mom.” Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga shows up to take Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audrianato get pedicures with her daughter, Antonia. Melissa says she’s reached out to Teresa in prison, but she hasn’t heard back because “Teresa’s email chain is full.” <side eye> Melissa is still praying for her, though because she knows which side her Bravo bread is buttered on. Antonia and Milania, who have always shared a special bond, hold hands the entire way to the salon. #tendermoment
