Y'all know I'm always the first person to snark onAlexis Bellino. Those outfits! That husband! The whole "not knowing what regular words mean"! However, I must begrudgingly admit that, no matter what the situation, Alexis' heart always seems to be in the right place.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star just returned from a vacation where she spent her time giving back to those less fortunate. As much as Alexis annoyed me on RHOC, I do feel like she's one of the few who have left the franchise and continued doing what she would have been doing had she never been a Bravolebrity. Whether that's cutting sleeves off a dress recently sewn by seamstress or giving her time and energy to those who need it, I believe that Alexis, as shallow as she comes across, does have a heart of gold. And yes, it did pain me to type that…but I do think it's true.
Alicia DiMichele Garofalo is in whole heaps of trouble after being embroiled in an embezzlement case. And you know, potentially serving time interferes with your ability to appear on Mob Wives, so Alicia quit the show! With her husband already serving ten-years, she awaits sentencing.
Alicia's official song and dance is that she wants to focus on her kids, which is probably a good idea just in case she heads to the slammer. But she also had a rough time on the Mob Wives. Weighing in on Alicia's departure, Renee Graziano and Drita D'avanzo spoke to Radar Online.
"Honestly, I was a little surprised she joined the cast because of her whole court case. The show didn’t bring her any good, so I can see why she’s pulling out now,” Reneeacknowledged.
On last night's episode, Kristen learned what happens when you try and take on Ramona Singer. I mean how dare Kristen call out Ramona for something that she did? Did she not get the memo before the season started that Ramona can do and say, what Ramona wants to do or say, and the other housewives are not supposed to point that out. I say, "Go Kristen!", it is about time somebody pointed out the double standard that is Ramona. And the fact that she does it calmly and sanely, is just icing on the cake.
If twitter is an indicator of fact, the sisters-in-law have laid their battle axes down and are at least getting along-ish for the children. Our source confirms the SIL at war storyline is all but dead. Thank you Jesus! "Season 6 of RHONJ is nothing like the past few seasons," our source assures us!
"Teresa and Melissa were forced to play nice. Off camera, they have NO relationship. The kids do see each other and have interaction. But, that is about it," our source adds.
Did the entire cast of Real Housewives of New York lose their minds (I mean, that's insinuating they had minds to begin with, but…) – someone must have spiked the pinot! Sonja Morgan is in hot water – and I don't mean in the spa hot tub. She's got a mess of financial issues that are literally drowning her. Because Ramona Singer has issues of her own, she's decided to ignore them and focus all of her animosity on taking care of Sonja. It doesn't bode well for Ramonja! Is Turtle Time dead? (Please say yes!).
Sonja has a pool day, so she and her intern hit up the local Whole Foods some refreshments and then hire a the DJ/Bar Tender. The guests? Sonja, Aviva Drescher, and Ramona. Yes – Sonja hired a DJ and bar tender for this. "If you don't feel decadent, you're doing something wrong!" Sonja explains. Something wrong like spending money on things like DJs when your iPod playlist will do just fine? Something like that decadence? #ThisIsWhyYoureBankrupt
