Bravo‘s new reality series Mother Funders premieres this Sunday. The cast of PTO moms includes LaShon Thompson, Shana Koorse, Shayzon Prince, Carla Stephens, Robin Dyke, Amber Bryant, and Amber Coulter.
Bravo shares: “Mother Funders is a comedic docu-series which takes a look inside the triumphs and trials of one very special Parent Teacher Organization board in Locust Grove, Georgia, led by super mom and president, Carla. With Carla’s goal to raise as much money as she can for the town’s elementary school, it’s a strict regimen of reading, writing, and arithmetic to raise the most funds for the local elementary school. The only way of reaching her goal is to keep the momentum going and get her fellow board members to plan, execute, and implement extravagant fundraising events which will rake in the cash – but ruffle some feathers along the way.”
I’m sold. I haven’t been this excited about a new Bravo show since Ladies of London. As a PTO mom myself (haha! don’t judge me!), I am intrigued, and I also hope Mother Funders is a suitable replacement for Lifetime’s now- canceled Pretty Wicked Moms, which I loved. Take a look below to meet the cast and watch an exclusive clip from Mother Funders‘ first episode.
Looking to revise (but more likely reprise) her less than stellar image on this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, resident backstabber Tamra Judge shares why she didn’t invite any of her castmates to son Ryan and daughter in law Sarah’s baby shower, how new girl Meghan Edmonds may have a bigger mouth than her, and why Vicki Gunvalson is already telling lies.
In her Bravo blog, Tamra begins by sharing her excitement about becoming a grandmother to 4-month old Ava, and step-grandma to Sarah’s previous three girls: “Yep it true…I am a Tam-Ma! I finally got the baby I wanted. Ava is now 4 months old and the cutest little girl I have ever seen. It seems like overnight I became a grandmother to four adorable girls. Sarah has three girls from another relationship, Ella 5, Brooklyn 12, and Emily 10. Ryan is up to eyeballs in girls now. My daughter Sophia is so very happy to be an aunt to girls practically her age.” Tamra also thanks her party planners for throwing hay everywhere to “transform” her gym into a virtual honky tonk, saying, “I can’t believe that behind all those bales of hay was our Fitness studio, CUT Fitness, the transformation was beautiful.”
In her book, Holly claimed Hugh offered her “thigh opener” drugs the first time he met her. Creepy, right? Yet, despite the warning signs, Holly stayed the night and moved into the mansion a few weeks later. A decision which led to years of verbal and emotional abuse.
Despite a court report stipulating that federal prosecutors were lawfully allowed to seize Teresa Giudice‘s assets to satisfy her restitution debts, Teresa’s out-spoken attorney James L. Leonard Jr. denies that’s that the case!
“I am a boss,” states Heather. “There are all different types of people. Not everyone has those leadership skills, or steps out, or has that real Type A personality.”
The Real Housewives Of New York star has butted heads with castmates over her outspokenness and take charge attitude, but she feels it’s served her well. However, if Heather were involved with one of the ladies in a business environment, it’s surprising who she’d choose to work with. For instance – if Heather had to hire a Housewife as an apprentice she would hire Ramona Singer “in a second.”
America’s worst boyfriend? Maybe, but now he’ll possibly be America’s worst cook too! Ex-Bachelor contestant Chris Soules is not hiding from the limelight after his split from fiance’ Whitney Bischoff. Chris, along with other reality has-beens stars like Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Kendra Wilkinson will be appearing on the Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show, hosted by Food Network celebrity chefs Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray, gathers a group of “kitchen-challenged celebrities” and subjects them to a culinary boot-camp of sorts. Production, which is already underway, reveals that Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White, and Barry Williams will also be joining as willing victims, er, cast members. A grand prize of $50,000 for charity will go to the celebrity who outlasts and out-cooks the others.
