With no new Real Housewives of Atlanta episode to snark tonight, we’ll have to snark on the next best thing: reality star fashion! The reality stars stepped out this week for RuPaul’s Drag Race season premiere, to host events, and get their self-promotion on in other ways.
I always say that nothing this family does surprises me, but it doesn’t mean I can wrap my head around their horrible antics and anything-for-fame mentality. In my mind, parents should be parents first, not friends, and certainly not people who see their kids only as dollar signs. In case you couldn’t tell, I’m talking about the Kardashian klan, and specifically Kris Jenner and her youngest daughter Kylie.
Obviously, given her older siblings “fame,” Kylie grew up a lot differently than other girls her age. Most seventeen-year-olds aren’t plumping their lips and jet setting around the world. Also, most seventeen-year-olds aren’t dating twenty-five-year-old rappers with a baby…and if they are, it isn’t with their family’s blessing. Yes, I know I don’t have kids, and yes, technically, at eighteen, she’s considered an adult. Sure, people will say that in a few years, that age difference won’t matter. My friends and I weren’t saints at seventeen, but our rebelliousness was more about splitting a wine cooler among three people or toilet papering the homes of boys (our age!) we thought were cute. Don’t think I’m just Katrashing Kylie because of her family…I felt the same way when my revered Lizzie Maguire was dating the Madden who’s now married to Nicole Richie. It’s just ew, and being famous isn’t a pass for ew. Even more ew? What Kanye West had to say about his young sister-in-law’s romance…although that doesn’t surprise me either.
With so many reality TV shows coming and going lately, we decided to gather up the reality TV listings every week for Sunday through Friday.
First, a reminder, Real Housewives of Atlanta and Sister Wives aren’t new tonight because of the Oscars. This week, The Voice, Survivor, Amazing Race, and Catfish kick off new seasons, while both Friends to Lovers? and Child Genius wrap up their first season.
Check out the reality TV listings list, which includes the Watch What Happens Live guests for the week, and let us know what you plan to watch.
Mona Scott Young deserves the slowest of slow claps. She is always trying to outdo herself in crazy drama. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize that when she cast Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, she was going to create the perfect storm, one which even the franchise’s creator couldn’t live up to in the grand scheme of VH1.
But, gracious, she certainly keeps trying! In an effort to bring new life to the original Love & Hip Hop, Mona has brought in a few new cast members. None are so memorable as Baltimore native Chrissy Monroe. She dates music producer Chink Santana, she’s got long-standing beef with Erica Mena due to her past as an alleged madame career as a modeling mogul, and she’s got a suitcase full of wigs that leave Kim Zolciak envious. Well, maybe not, but the lady has some serious hair pieces!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
I’m just gonna go ahead and say it – Claudia Jordan bores me and there’s something really disingenuous about her. The constant backpedaling hyperbole, coupled with bragging about how smart, accomplished, and career-savvy she is, without any of the behavior to back it up just irks me. Furthermore, anyone this bothered by Porsha Williams needs a priority realignment.
“I was not crying about Porsha or the fact that I’m biracial!” Claudia announces “There was such a buildup of so many things that it just took one little thing to push me over the top. I am not that emotionally invested in Porsha, and if you ever catch me getting there, please take me out to pasture and put me out of my misery!”
Givenchy creative director Ricardo Tisci wants you to know his love for Kanye West will never die and he’s a stand by your man kind of a guy, even if it means dressing Kim Kardashian like a giant dilapidated sofa killed his cred in the fashion industry!
Ricardo has long had a friendship with Kanye, so when his pal decided to hitch his wagon wheel to Kim, Ricardo embraced that change as well. But he says many fashion insiders have panned his relationship with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians kouple. I can’t imagine why…
In fact, Ricardo says the fact that he would even dress Kim points to the honesty of their friendship. “I’m not there to dress a celebrity. I dress people even when they don’t have an Oscar nomination or they don’t have an album out. If they’re my friends, I respect them to the end,” he explains. “And you need to feel people stay with you because they love you, not only as an artist, but also as a human being. Look at Kanye and Kim—at the beginning, I was the only one.”
