The closer we get to Nationals, the closer we get to the season finale of Dance Moms, and you know what that means! We’re one episode closer to a (fingers crossed!) a break from Abby Lee Miller. She’s been pitting her girls head-to-head in solos, and last night Maddie faced off against Kendall for another week in the running for Nationals. Y’all know Jill was on pins and needles watching her daughter’s dreams unfold!
The ALDC and the moms are excited to arrive at Abby’s new studio. There’s a dumpster outside, so that means progress! As everyone enters for the first practice in the new space, they are thrilled to see all that has transpired. Abby is in an amazing mood (for once), and she plans to have her grand opening the same time as Nationals so that the girls will be around to meet people and sign autographs before heading back to Pittsburgh. Jill worries that her focus will now be more on the studio and less on the important competition. While Abby is glad about last week’s win, she hasn’t seen any improvement from her team in the last year. She’s worried they’ve been blinded by the bright lights of Hollywood. Someone on this show has…that’s for sure!
Tonight’s Watch What Happens Live guests were Ramona Singer and actor Michael Rapaport, who happens to be a true blue Housewives SUPER fan.
Andy gives Michael thirty seconds to ask anything he wants. He asks Andy which Househusband would he like to sleep with (or run laps with, as Michael calls it), he answers with Apollo Nida without missing a beat. On what reunion confrontation he worried about the most, he says Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub at the season 2 Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.
Gaga, who already knows Dorinda’s boyfriend, John, performed a private concert at the Borgata. After the show some slightly crazy-on-slightly crazy blonde adoration occurred – Gaga and was all too excited to share all about her hangout session with Dorinda.”Last night was fun I lost my cellphone. But at least nobody put any fucking straws in our martinis @DorindaMedley,” Gaga gushed on twitter, sharing photos of her and Dorinda. And Dorinda even got to meet Mama Gaga!
Above Dorinda shared, “Cheek to cheek….almost. @LadyGaga #RHONY”
Aboard the Eros, a 161 foot yacht worth $11 MILLION, “the crew quickly learns they must check their egos at the dock in order to provide first-class service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests. From elicit affairs, to crew member firings, and technical failures on the yacht, the drama on the high seas becomes too much for some of them to handle. As tensions reach a boiling point between Kate and new chef Leon, Captain Lee calls on Ben Robinson for help.”
“This has been an emotionally taxing week for my family and me,” begins Meghan. “On Tuesday, July 22, LeAnn Huntley Edmonds-Horton lost her battle to colon cancer. Not only was she the mother to two of my stepchildren, Lauren and Hayley, she was my friend. For LeAnn to embrace me as she did is a true testament to her character and her willingness to work together for the sake of her children. LeAnn’s personality was captured perfectly on camera: accommodating, sweet, and overall a lovely person. There are many people who are affected by her death but Lauren, Hayley, and LeAnn’s parents are the ones who are affected significantly beyond anyone else, and I ask that you allow them to grieve as they see fit because even though life goes on and smiles and laughter exist, the pain in their hearts is constant.”
Kim Kardashian’s baby bump size is rapidly changing by the day and we are only four months in..supposedly. She stepped out just a few weeks ago with no visible bump in sight and when she arrived in Paris last week, it suddenly “popped,” but now..this? The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared this selfie last night (right) and it had us wondering – is she further along than she initially shared?
Kim has said that she is due sometime in December, giving her nearly five months to go in her pregnancy. Yet, her baby bump growth seems to be indicating a story that’s much different. Is she fudging her due date for privacy concerns? Is she having twins? Is it a fake bump? What is going on?! We’ve gathered photos from the past 45 days to show you exactly why we’re so floored over the abrupt change. Obviously a woman’s body goes through tremendous changes over the course of her pregnancy and every single expectant mom is different, but this is a Kardashian we’re talking about here – with a history of untruths – so the reality usually lands somewhere in the middle. Also, what is with the long-sleeved, floor-length coats in the middle of summer in California? (Supposedly to block the paparazzi butt shots, but I’m not buying it.)
Oh, man. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting exhausted for, and by, Shannon Beador – and I’m possibly one of the few who still really likes this wacky woman! Just watching her maneuver through the painful storyline she’s put on display this season of the Real Housewives of Orange County makes me want to lie down and take a long nap. Where’s the promise of more “upbeat” scenes with Shannon and family? Where’s the “pot of gold” at the end of the rainbow? Toto, we aren’t in Kansas anymore!
In her blog this week, Shannon once again explains – and explains, and explains – why she was frustrated with husband David at Meghan Edmonds’ game night, why she gave Meghan the side eye (but NOT the judgy eye!) about Botox treatments, and how marriage counseling has put her marriage “on the fast track to healing.”
