It has been no secret that Josh Altman and Heather have called off their wedding. For now. But on last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, seeing him try on his custom inscribed tuxedo, ‘to a beautiful beginning’ on the lapel and ‘I’m sold’ under the collar, gave me the sads. Fortunately, his brother Matt, in his Yolanda Foster approved Hermes belt, will be there to help him get through the tough times. And carry him professionally as well.
The Altman Brothers have a Big Fish to catch. Up for grabs is the majestic Dorothy Chandler estate in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles. A major deal in Josh Altman’s career. At the same time, he is supposed to be planning his client-focused wedding extravaganza with Heather, who is none too pleased to be meeting with the florist on her own. Josh senses that things are going south with his fiancé when she hangs the phone up on him. And Heather never hangs up on him.
Last night Sonja attended an exclusive cabaret show at Café Carlyle for a performance by actress Molly Ringwald. At $600 per ticket, one might expect class – or not! Sonja reportedly showed up wasted, violated dress code, and behaved sloppily, report other attendees.
Witnesses claim that Sonja was seated front and center and paid more attention to her cell phone than the performance. And that she was drunk as a skunk upon arrival – only worsened by her “martini-swilling” throughout the evening. Lord let’s just be thankful she kept all her clothes on and her legs closed, or didn’t hop up on stage to perform her own “Caburlesque” nonsense.
From her table surround by male attendants (who is she Lady Gaga now?) Sonja was talking loudly throughout Molly’s act and spent the evening texting and tweeting on her phone. “Sonja seemed completely bombed,” says a witness of Sonja’s attention-seeking. “She had about five men at the table and they were all chatting throughout. She drunkenly asked to meet Molly, who declined.”
Yesterday Phaedra Parks appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk the recent events of her life – most specifically Apollo Nida‘s incarceration and their marriage! Ellen also asked Phaedra about her Real Housewives Of Atlanta castmates and if Apollo cheated during their marriage.
What struck me is how nervous Phaedra seemed – in all the heated situations we’ve seen Phaedra in I’ve never seen her literally trembling. We do know she doesn’t like to “open up” so maybe that had something to do with it. I did love her dress which, and she joked with Ellen that anyone could be a southern belle – even Ellen. Ellen joked back that she had pearls on under her suit.
We previously shared some of Phaedra’s quotes about her life now, how she was initially supportive and believed Apollo was telling the truth (“Obviously it didn’t turn out that way,” she acknowledges.) and Phaedra also denied cheating during their marriage.
New Atlanta Housewife Claudia Jordan was red hot at the “Beyond The Lights” screening in Atlanta. Kim Richards grabbed food from Judy’s Deli, and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star James Harris hit up Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood.
Joe Giudice threatened to kick cameramen in the head on his way to court this morning if they didn’t get out of his way and it looks like one of them got a little too close. Juicy shoved the camera out of his way and it appears as if it hit the cameraman in the face and knocked his glasses off.
CBS reporter Dave Carlin shared the photo on Twitter, “EXCLUSIVE Reality TV’s #JoeGiudice roughed up a News photographer before taking a plea deal in Passaic Court. CBS 5pm.” He also says that Joe dropped an F bomb while the altercation went down.
This morning in courtJoe was undecided about accepting the deal mainly because of the license suspension stipulation. He will be the one driving around their four girls next year when Teresa Giudicegoes to prison for nearly 15 months. By not accepting the deal Joe would’ve went to trial and faced the possibility of 10 years in prison for this case (adding over 6 more years onto the Federal sentence). He decided that figuring out a way to drive himself and the kids around for a year would be easier than potentially sitting in prison for several additional years!
Adrienne shares that she needed exposure closure – and to settle some old scores. But this time she knows what she’s getting into! “I think I’m better equipped now to deal with what to expect from ‘Housewives,'” Adrienne explains. “I really wanted to come full circle and have some closure with the women. And the producers agreed, that’s a fantastic idea.”
There have been some surprising cast shake-ups for the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha Williams has been downgraded to just being a “friend” of the Housewives, Demetria McKinney joins the ranks as a fellow Housewife “friend” and former Price Is Right Barker’s Beauty, Claudia Jordan joins the ladies as a full-time housewife.
And no one was more surprised by Claudia’s promotion to full-time housewife than Claudia herself.
