“Man is made of such a seemly shape, that friend or foe is not discerned by face; then hard it is the wickeds’ wiles to scape, since that the bad to mask with honest grace.” – Geoffrey Whitney
Amber continued, “If Whitney could reach into my soul and pull out exactly what is there, he would have used these words. I don’t know who to trust – who is my friend, who is my enemy, what are everyone’s intentions? This is a truly awful feeling that, clearly, many have felt throughout history based on so many literary works on the subject. What is the driving force behind our actions? How do we come to our perceptions of situations? It all can be profoundly attributed to the interactions between genetics, social factors, and environment. We take from our experience good attributes as well as negative attributes such as, weakness, insecurity, jealous, hatred, and even a lack of empathy.”
Million Dollar ListingLos Angeles got some new blood this season in the form of our favorite new Brits and Bond Street Partners, James Harris and David Parnes. Despite being well-versed in luxury real estate, the new guys on the block had to learn a hard lesson this week when they ventured to Venice.
While the new guys were hitting the beach, the real estate agent we all love to hate, Josh Altman, was learning that planning a wedding takes a little more time, energy and preparation than he thought.
I feel bad reporting this, because I know Kandi Burruss put her heart and soul (and her relationship to Mama Joyce) into writing and performing in A Mother’s Love, but unfortunately the tour has just been canceled after one week! Even worse – it’s not Kandi’s fault! Apparently the promoter hired to promote the tour wasn’t particularly equipped to handle the demand.
FunkyDineva, a friend of Kandi’s and a member of the cast, reveals that the promoter was allegedly “cash poor” and that paychecks were bouncing on the first week! After seeing A Mother’s Love on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, it seems it was the promoter who approached Kandi with the idea of a 30 city US tour with the hopes of eventually landing on Broadway. Unfortunately the promoter apparently didn’t have the resources, nor the cash, to pull off a huge touring production with multiple cast members. Nor, it seemed, was advertising up to snuff so ticket sales suffered.
Is MTV pulling the plug on Kail Lowry, Chelsea Houska, Leah Calvert, and Jenelle as promised? Yeah, NO. “Producers are getting ready for season 6,” a source revealed yesterday. “They are calling the girls to make sure everyone is on board.” Oh please, like any of them would say no to MTV money.
Nick started out with ordinary Tom Ford loafers, but then Jason Arasheben, of Jason of Beverly Hills jewelers, custom-added 14,000 full-cut round white diamonds set onto white gold. The shoes contain a total weight of 340 carats and are currently being reviewed by the Guinness Book Of World Records for the title of World’s Most Valuable Shoes. I suppose Nick is really living it up after his separation from Mariah Carey!

On this week’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, the Altman brothers have picked up where they left off last week – in disagreement over the unfinished Hollywood Hills house. Matt is upset that Josh is still showing the property when he already has a buyer ready to make an offer. Josh reluctantly agrees to give his brother’s creepy client, Sam, twenty-four uninterrupted hours to close the deal.
Josh Flagg and Colton meet with business partner, Sabrina, to discuss their personal investment property, Marcheeta. This property is named after its location on one of the ‘bird’ streets in Beverly Hills. A highly desirable area where all the streets are named after different birds. Josh tells them that he has a premonition to sell. Since there is a lot of new construction going on in the area, they should get out while they are ahead. Sabrina and Colton are a little emotional having put in two years of sweat equity, but agree to sell once they hear that they will double their initial investment. Cha-ching!
