I wish I could reach through your computer screen and pass you a tissue, because I know y'all are super upset that this season of Love & Hip Hop has drawn to a close. Not surprisingly, the finale was all about two couples, with everyone else just showing up for a few quick minutes. Perhaps VH1 should remember that less is more when it comes to casting…we can't get involved with eighteen different story lines!
Of course, last night starts off with everyone's favorite (hahaha!) plot. Joe Budden has returned to New York, and he feels that his relationship with Tahiry Jose is unresolved. Once home, Kaylin reveals that she's been nervous to hear about her boyfriend's vacay with his ex. Joe shares that his feelings for Tahiry are beyond his control, and Kaylin wants to call it quits on her relationship with Joe…except that she doesn't have anywhere else to go. When she asks their status as a couple, I think (I had to rewind three times) Joe said "Let us pray," but I can't be sure.
Also back in NYC is Tahiry, and she's meeting up with Rashidah Ali to rehash her stories from the Dominican Republic. Forget about Tahiry's charity work or reconciliation with her father, Tahiry only wants to chat about Joe. Rashidah is floored to learn that her friend may still be in love with Joe, and she's concerned that the two are moving in the wrong direction. During the next commercial break Subway treats us to Tahiry waxing poetic about her charity work in the DR. So, her conversation didn't make the actual show, but I guess this is better than nothing!
Joe Giudice has the utmost faith in our legal system! The controversial "businessman" and husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudicehasn't always had the best luck with the law, and the couple has been riddled with rumors of Joe's cheating and major discord in their marriage. While the pair has faced all of the gossip with fake smiles and denials, no one can dispute that Joe's record is anything but squeaky clean.
Throughout the past seasons of RHONJ, Joe's mouth has gotten him in all sorts of trouble, although his actions have also landed him in hot water. He's been battling legal woes stemming from an identity theft case in which Joe allegedly falsely obtained a driver's license in his brother's name since his own license had been revoked. Joe's court issues have been ongoing (the man loves rejecting a plea deal!), and it appears that there isn't an end in sight thanks to Joe's ego professed innocence. Juicy!
Eight long years ago – yes 8 – Vicki Gunvalson first appeared in our living rooms through our television screen. It was a sad day for mankind because it was also around that time that Slave Smiley first graced us with his presence!
Real Housewives of Orange County started the phenomenon that has become a monster in its own right. Tonight the OG of the franchise celebrates the season 8 premiere and through this season the show will reach it's 100th episode!
For Vicki, she felt a responsibility to both viewers and the franchise to continue with the show even when it captured some not-so flattering moments, like her marital difficulties. Vicki and Donn Gunvalson have still not settled their pending divorce.
"I have a sense of responsibility," Vickiexplains to The Huffington Post. "I would've been (bleeping) at myself if I backed out of season five or six and saw the success of the franchise keep going, and I elected to pull back because I couldn't handle it anymore. There's nothing I can't handle. I just have to figure out a way not to crumble when times get tough when I'm doing this."
Just a few minutes ago Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) announced that she and fiance Jionni LaValle have secretly tied the knot.
Snooki writes, "Jionni and I eloped!!! Here's a pic of the magical day!". Snooki included a shot of what might have been their secret wedding ceremony.
I immediately want to believe the former Jersey Shore star because they seem like the type of couple who would rather have a "normal" media-free wedding day, but there's a part of me that's a little cautious today since it IS April Fool's Day.
What do you think? Is Snooki pulling a prank? Or is she purposely announcing it today to make us wonder if it's the real deal or not?
UPDATED: Snooki shared tonight: "APRIL FOOLS ya freaks!! My ass is gonna have a huge wedding lets be serious!! lololol". So there we go….
Yolanda maintains that Kim was a mess in Paris and "upset with Kyle Richards" at the airport so Yolanda was helping Kim. Kim admits to taking the wrong medication and suffering from seizures during that same trip. All-in-all, I would say it was a vacation I'm glad I wasn't on.
Resurrecting the reunion drama in her Bravo Blog, Kim believes Yolanda is "trying to make her look bad" because they weren't able to clear up meeting for the master cleanse at Yolanda's house. "Yolanda and I NEVER made plans! She did NOT call me, and I did NOT call her after Ojai! There were no messages left on her machine, and there were none left on mine! No emails were exchanged!" Kim insists.
Last week, Kari, Toya, and Quad's drama ruined Mariah's birthday party. Now, Mariah hosts a Doctors on the Dock party, and she hopes that the other ladies are able to act like proper doctor's wives in the presence of their doctor husbands. The party starts well. Then, Quad shows up, and she proves that she doesn't have a refined bone in her body. Mariah's little pet is out of control.
Quad arrives late, which the other wives find to be tacky, and then she greets everyone but Toya. Quad says Toya can "catch fire and go to hell" and turns her attention to Kari. Acting innocent, Quad asks Kari if she or her husband were ever married to other people, and Kari admits that she met Duncan while he was still married to his first wife. DUN-DUN-DUUUUN!!!
Shain and his uncle, David Gandee, were last seen leaving a local bar around 3 a.m. Sunday morning, with plans to go off-roading, and were later reported missing by family. Shain and David's bodies – along with a third unidentified victim – were found inside of Shain's Ford Bronco this morning in Sissonville, West Virginia. Kanawha County Commissioner Kent Carper has confirmed the news.
