Well, ’tis a season of change on Flipping Out. Do not ask for whom the bell tolls! It tolls for Intern Joe. As Jeff moves into his new Hollywood space, Joe moves on to greener pastures, or at least pastures that don’t abut Jeff Lewis properties.
Gramercy is closing and tensions are high as Jeff flips out at Jenni Pulos for allegedly closing gates, not tracking Joe’s trash bags, and for breathing too much air in Jeff’s general vicinity. All of Jeff’s personal items fit into one Rubbermaid bin, which says a lot about his feelings on chotchkies. And life. While he may not be sentimental about things, he is sentimental about leaving Gramercy, once touted as his “forever” house that he and Gage Edward lovingly redesigned. (Is it weird that I’m sad too? <sniff>) Zoila Chavez, for one, is not going to miss Gramercy or its 50 steps she must climb everyday.
Well, we survived the premiere episode of Little Women: LA, which revealed a leaner, meaner Tonya Banks coming hard for newbie Jasmine Sorge, who Tonya claims to have some long-standing beef with over a social media faux pas with her ex-boyfriend Trevore. Fellow newbie Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman also dropped a nuclear bomb on Terra Jole and Tonya last week that rocked their worlds: Elena Gant used to “date” Brittney’s father while married to Saint Preston the Longsuffering, according to Brittney. So the season was set with some ratchet tension right off the bat! And last night’s episode continued the theme of Messiness with a capital M.
Briana Manson is back with Matt, a move that doesn’t sit well with her friends or family. She and Christy McGinty go shopping for lingerie and…sex toys? They tie each other up and slap each other around a bit before getting into a deeper conversation about Christy and Todd’s IVF plans. Briana is shocked to hear they’ll be choosing an average sized embryo rather than a little person (since Christy already has two children who are little people), but Christy wants the healthiest baby possible and stands by her decision. Side note, Christy looks the best she’s ever looked in her talking heads! #beautifulinblue
This week had Kim Kardashian in New Orleans to celebrate a superfan’s birthday and to hang with her friends, while chowing down on NOLA beignets – no less than three times during her quick visit. A growing baby boy wants what a baby boy wants, right?
The pregnant Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a slew of photos from her trip to the Big Easy. We’re assuming the KUWTK camera crew was on hand to capture Kim’s act of fan appreciation. A famewhore needs her video and photo proof when it comes to random acts of generosity and kindness, right?
Check out Kim’s NOLA adventures below – complete with airplane bathroom selfie. No, really.
Maddie Ziegler isn’t just a dancer anymore. Nor is she just a reality star. She’s turned herself into bonafide celebrity, but despite her transformation from dance prodigy to sophisticated dancer in her own right, Dance Moms will always be Maddie’s home. And no matter how far Maddie ascends up the fame ladder one question will always taunt her: Is Abby Lee Miller really that terrible?
Below, Maddie discusses the inescapable force of Abby, the evolution of her dancing, her favorite ALDC moments, and what she’s really like off camera. Also in a video below, she and sister Mackenzie dance through the most fabulous fall trends. It’s gorgeous!
What Maddie doesn’t talk about is season 6, which is rumored to be plateaued as Abby argues with Lifetime and producers about wages and show structure.
In her blog this week, Kristen Taekman throws a bit of shade at Sonja Morgan before respectfully tipping her hat (or her statement necklace) at Sonja’s long-time-coming fashion show. The Real Housewives of New Yorkmodel dishes on why Sonja’s handling of her model casting was extremely inappropriate, how proud she is of ‘Pop of Color’ launching, and how the housewives were ultimately “all blown away” at Sonja’s successful fashion show.
As for Sonja’smodel casting, to which Bethenny Frankel and Heather Thomson were summoned, Kristen remarks, “I really do not understand why whenever someone is invited to anything with Sonja, they have no idea what they are in for. I would have to agree with Bethenny that a model casting was a waste of her time. Heather was a perfect fit for that since she does model castings all the time. But I must say, how on earth can you do a model casting without seeing the clothing? Hmmmm. Maybe I’m missing something.”
It’s Todd Tucker birthday celebration week! Todd has been celebrating his birthday all week, starting with a guys trip to Miami where he ran into Marlo Hampton(Oh my!).
Yesterday Kandi Burruss threw a birthday dinner for Todd, who then celebrated with friends at Atlanta’s Rose Bar. Unfortunately Kandi had to leave the party early due to pregnancy (smoky bar no fun for baby). And speaking of which, Todd shared a photo of Kandi’s growing baby bump.
Back when lips were smaller and Caitlyn Jenner was still Bruce, Kylie Jenner was just a 16-year old kid let loose on the mean streets of Calabasas with a driver’s license. Just over two weeks after Kylie began driving, she found herself at fault for a 3-car accident when she crashed her $125k Mercedes SUV into the back of a Toyota, which hit the back of a Suburu SUV.
At the time, reports claimed that “it didn’t appear anyone suffered any serious injuries,” and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star maintains that she’s accepted all blame for the accident since then. But one victim is still refusing Kylie’s offer of a $20K settlement, instead taking the lawsuit to court. The victim is also asking that Kylie be deposed on video, which Kylie is refusing to do out of fear that the video will be leaked for publicity.
It didn’t look like Claudia was too upset over losing her Rickey Smiley Show gig as she strutted around with friends in the tropical paradise. Claudia showed off her teeny tiny costume for the parade (which nobody informed her was over 20 miles long). She also partied with friends and shared some gorgeous scenery shots, too.
