Luann de Lesseps is singing again – but this time it’s praises for her business challenged co-star Sonja Morgan! After Sonja finally pulled off the fete of getting her fashion show together, Luann has nothing but props for Lady Morgan.
“Was that Anna Wintour or Sonja Morgan behind the scenes at the Sonja Morgan New York show? She even had on the right glasses! Sonja tried to look cool, but I know inside she was a bundle of nerves,” describes Luann. “We were all pulling for her, and I was glad to see that she actually had clothing for her models.”
Ryan and Emilia got engaged in Times Square which Ryan shut down for the occasion. Since then it’s been full-speed ahead! The couple moved into their fully renovated NY apartment this February and have now shifted their focus to wedding planning. Oh, and Ryan is of course doing that whole real estate thingy too.
Since Emilia is Greek, naturally that’s where the couple will tie the knot. “Her whole family is in Athens. It’s going to be a destination wedding. I don’t know how many people will actually show up though,” Ryan told Details. He added that engaged life is quite similar to regular old couple life “except when she punches me in the face it leaves a diamond mark.”
Ryan and Emilia shared photos of their Greek vacation and wedding planning.
It’s Hot Photo Friday. This morning we have Lisa Vanderpump attending the 1st #LoveCampaign party at Pump along with her Vanderpump Rules cast. Those in attendance for the soiree: Jax Taylor, Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, Jax’s new girl Brittany Cartwright and more.
Across town, co-star Peter Madrigal was snapped doing some shopping at The Grove with a friend. Also in L.A., Kim Kardashian showed off her maternity style in a tight white dress as she arrived at LAX, while Asa Soltan Rahmati ran some errands.
A little (spiked) blind tea for your Friday morning.
Which Real Housewives participant received a DUI last fall and kept it very quiet until now? The reality star’s license was revoked in spring for three months. They had to rely on friends and family for rides everywhere, which made it difficult to keep things under wraps, especially for mandatory work events. This reality star is also dating/seeing someone 25 years younger. Hopefully this one is drama-free, unlike their last love interest.
There’s an old saying that when one door closes, another door opens. I am so thankful that holds true with VH1 and the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Sure, this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is going by way too quickly (seriously…is it shorter than normal?), and I’ll miss Stevie J., Yung Joc, and the crew’s crazy shenanigans, but at least we’ve got Love & Hip Hop Hollywood waiting in the wings! Atlanta may be the fan favorite, but laughing at Ray J squeak through each episode as he talks his tough guy game is a close second!
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait much longer as the sophomore season premieres Monday, September 7th at 8PM/ET. Judging by the previews that have been released, we’re in for quite a treat! In case you were wondering, Ray J and Soulja Boy (I’d forgotten how much he looks like a tatted preteen–adorable!) are still having issues with monogamy. Say it ain’t so! Don’t believe me? Enjoy the preview clips after the jump!
Brandi interviewed (obviously I use that term loosely) RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Michelle Visage, who was a treat to listen to, on her most recent podcast. Unfortunately, as per usual, Brandi talked about herself as much as she could.
When the subject of fame/finances came up, Brandi shared, “I know all of this could be over tomorrow. I’m not stupid like that. I save my money and, you know, I don’t own a house yet and we’re moving now into an apartment from a house. I feel like I’m kind of going backwards. It is hard because all I wanted to do was buy something and then, you know, the job situation turned around.”
E!’s Fashion Police hasn’t been the same without the unparalleled wit of Joan Rivers, but it looks like the network is ready to shake things up a bit for their premiere August 31. Alongside regular hosts Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski will be Real Housewives of Atlanta’s (ex) star NeNe Leakes! Awesomely edgy comedienne Margaret Cho will join NeNe as guest host for the night too. (Any wagers out there on how hard core Cho will go up against Giuliana or, for that matter, NeNe?)
The premiere episode of Fashion Police featuring Nene and Cho will cover the hits and tragic misses of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Guest hosts for the five remaining FP episodes following the premiere will be announced on social media each Monday leading up to the show. No word yet on who the guest hosts will be, but I’m betting there’s another reality star in the mix somewhere. Or perhapsTeresa Giudice will be live tweeting from prison? Juuuust kidding.
