Reality TV Listings Secrets and Wives

Premiering tonight on Bravo is the much-hyped Secrets and Wives, a show that looks very Real-Housewifey on the surface (and may well turn out to be), but is based on a different premise, and an important one at that: these chicks are actually lifelong friends. Growing up on the North Shore of Long Island, they went to high school together. They dated each other’s ex boyfriends (and, in some cases, ex-husbands). They got bad spiral perms in 1983 together. In short, they know where the bodies are buried. Which could make for some good drama…or some insufferable RHONJ-like feuds. 

”There’s no jealousy between us; we’re all really supportive,” S&W cast member Andi Black tells Long Island Weekly. “Most of the time when you have all these gorgeous women, you think you wouldn’t be supportive of each other, but there’s a love there.” She adds, “We all have had our weak times, and when you see all these other women being strong and lifting each other up, you realize you can get past anything. There’s not an issue that someone can’t relate to on the show.” Big words for a brand-spanking new reality “star.” But only time will tell if the group’s lifelong friendships will withstand the test of Bravo cameras in their faces day in and day out. After all, many a reality marriage has crumbled under similar conditions.

Sonja Morgan wants everyone to know she will not be held down or held back by mean girls! She is not a victim – she is a fighter – and an entrepreneur. Part of Sonja’s I am not a victim anthem includes lashing out at her castmates – and she’s not cutting anyone slack as she throws them under the broiler of her invisible toaster oven to nowhere. 

Tired of being on everyone’s radar, Sonja encourages her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars to stop being mean girls and start celebrating her successes. I mean, after all she has working plumbing in the upstairs bathroom now, right?!

“I’m not a survivor; I’m a fighter. I’m not going to play victim here,” Sonja declares. “What we have is mean girls: people who are being very insecure about their position with me. I think that it threatens Ramona [Singer] and Luann [de Lesseps] because they are so close to me that they feel like we want to keep Sonja just a silly party girl that laughs everything off. You think they would be happy – not thinking about themselves.”

Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 10

Real Housewives Of Orange County season 10 premiers next week, but the Housewives assure us this season will be a very different glass of wine. Don’t expect producer-amped up melodramas, instead expect real and raw emotions as the ladies confront birth, death, Tamra Judge finding Jesus, relationships, terminal illness, and very real friendship issues

“You’re going to see a lot of real – with all of us,” shared Shannon Beador. “I think it’s a really good season this year. We have a birth, my granddaughter, we have a death, we have everything in between,” Tamra agreed. “It’s really real life stuff going on. It’s not like, ‘You didn’t invite me to a party! You took my chair!’ It’s not that stuff…”

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

Ramona Singer is becoming this season’s Real Housewives of New York professional apologizer (and for good reason!). And in her latest Bravo blog, she brushes up on her skills. “Well I guess I put my foot in my mouth big time at Dorinda [Medley’s] birthday dinner at Petrossian,” admits Ramona. “Instead of taking the compliment graciously that Heather [Thomson] gave me and Luann [de Lesseps] agreed with, I turned it around into an argument when I said they both never got me the way Dorinda did.” 

Wishing she would have kept the Ramonacoaster ride strictly in “park” that night, Ramona explains, “My punishment for that was served up coldly–or should I say hotly–by Luann when she angrily started in about a conversation we had about John and Dorinda.” Ramona declares, “OMG, when will I learn to keep my mouth totally shut?! I should have just been stuffing it with caviar.”

Teen Mom 2

 MTV has released a doozy of a trailer for Teen Mom 2 season 6.

Jenelle Evans is threatening Barbara and pressing charges against Nathan Griffith. And Nathan begs Jenelle to not let the cops take him away. “Jenelle, please!” he sobs from the back seat of a cop car. “I didn’t do anything! Jenelle!”

Kail Lowry is as insufferable as ever. Leah Calvert is zoning out, crying, and screaming at her kids. “The girl I fell in love with,” bemoans Jeremy, “ain’t the girl I got now.” No mention of the unofficial season six cast member, Deer Cam.

Adam Lind makes promises he won’t keep. “My dad promised me I will go with him,” boasts Aubree. “And you can never ever break a promise.” On a happier note, we finally get to see Chelsea Houska‘s hot new boyfriend Cole DeBoer.

southern charm cast

I’ve already done double duty tonight, channeling my inner Mr. Belvedere and presenting myself with some running socks (sadly, I own no shoes with red soles) and a viewing drink so that my kaftan-clad (well, a bathrobe, but it’s fancy) self would be socially primed to watch the Southern Charm reunion the way it should be watched…channeling Patricia Altschul. I’m still upset with Andy Cohen for not stepping up the reunion game and bringing the final round to Charleston and out of the WWHL clubhouse. Next year, right?

The cast is prepping for the big night in New York City, and everyone is already anticipating a great deal of drama. Andy compliments Shepard “Sheppie” Rose on his mature and stylish attire and addresses Thomas Ravenel as “Senator,” although T-Rav claims to have no more future political aspirations. The host notes he stuck in the hot seat (and potentially in the line of physical fire) between Thomas and Kathryn Dennis before high-fiving Craig Conover. Enough with the pleasantries, Andy. This hour is going to fly by as it is!
