Well, it’s time for the new franchise of Lifetime’s Little Women series to make its debut! Little Women: New York premiered last night just after part one of the Little Women: L.A. reunion ended. And crossover “stars” from both cities appeared everywhere. Lila Call, a LWNY cast member, joined the LWLA ladies at their reunion to rehash her extreme antics with the ladies in LA last season. Then Elena Gant showed up on the LWNY premiere to sh*t stir like her name was Christy McGinty. Jeez, Elena! I thought she “had a dream!” that little people everywhere would one day live in peace? This dream is not happening in New York – or LA – with these groups of women.
We begin in NY with an introduction to the 6 little women and 1 little man who make up the cast. Lila Call (the ringleader), Misty Irwin (the party girl), Dawn Lang(paralegal career girl), Jason Perez (poly-sci student and – er – a guy!), Jazmin Lang (sister in law to Dawn & performer), Jordanna James (Broadway & burlesque performer), and Kristin Zettlemoyer (performer). Gotta say, I’m loving the opening video montage and soundtrack! Waaaaaaay better than LWLA!
Claudia Jordan has almost survived her first season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta (although she hasn’t experienced a reunion yet!), and while Claudia is hoping to be back next year, she hopes Porsha Williams won’t be joining her. Claudia forgets the first rule of reality television: Making someone relevant with a feud gives them a storyline, so all the times she keeps Porsha’s name in her mouth, Bravo is taking note and the chances of Poortaste returning increases!
Claudia believes Porsha just isn’t being herself. “She’s cute and glamorous – and that’s great – but I think we need more than that. I don’t think it’s enough to be on the show just co-signing whatever NeNe says,” Claudia complains. “That’s not a good character on a reality show. I think that’s kind of boring.” Interesting considering Claudia is on this show co-signing whatever Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey say… but go ahead.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Lizzie Rovsek, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and more, love to show off their adorable kid/family photos on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos this week.
Hey y’all – wanna talk about “semantics” with Brandi Glanville? She probably can’t define that word, but I bet the ghostwriter who allegedly writes her blogs can! Now that Brandi can no longer blame Lisa Vanderpump for everything that’s wrong in her life, she’s switched her vitriolic focus to Lisa Rinna and it’s all because Brandi believes Lisa intentionally tried to sabotage her friendship with Kim Richards by claiming Brandi said Kim needed an intervention.
Now all of us who watch Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills know what happened in that fateful conversation between Brandi and Lisa: Brandi both heavily implied and directly stated Kim was not OK and needed help. Brandi again reiterated those statements to her sober coach friend, Jen. There were also comments about pain patches and nebulous statements about what Kim is “doing.”
Lisa interpreted that to mean Kim needed their help, and Brandi wanted her assistance in providing that help. Sure the word “intervention” was never explicitly said by Brandi (this is the semantics part she fails to grasp), but when Lipsa said, “Not like an intervention?” Brandi didn’t reply, “Oh no Kim doesn’t need that! She just needs friends inviting her out to the movies and doing other sober fun things to get her out of the house and feeling more positive!” No, Brandi said, “Maybe you should do an intervention with all of us.” At worst, Lipsa is guilty of misinterpretation and getting overly involved.
This post came after aKeeping Up with the Kardashians scene aired in which Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian discuss Rob’s very public problems. Kim commented that Rob just needed to “get out of his funk.” Us Weekly reports an insider saying Rob basically feels Kim is two-faced. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” says the source.
Who knew there would be a multi-part Little Women: LA reunion? Not this girl! Well, it’s happening. And part one was full of blaming and finger pointing and drama-rehashing…and that was just from the Terra Jole.
Hosting the first hour of the LWLA reunion is Tanika Ray. Since seating arrangements at reunion shows typically speak volumes, it’s noteworthy to point out that Tonya Banks and Terra Jole are seated by themselves on one side of the room while Christy McGinty, Briana Manson, Elena Gant, and Traci Harrison are arranged on the other couch. Terra is very pregnant (and filming new show Terra’s Little Family) and scenes flashback to her pregnancy journey. Terra explains that she’s hopeful her baby is healthy – and we do now know baby Penelope is just fine! Yay! Terra says she’s been feeling some extreme pain and she had a blackout recently, but the baby is growing normally and they’re okay. Christy says she’s excited for Terra, but Terra flat out says that she doesn’t think Christy is genuine in her well-wishing. Tonya is still mad that Terra told Elena about her pregnancy before her, but rest of the group calls out Christy for being an instigator (Ding! Ding! Ding!) for telling Traci (and everyone else) that Terra told Elena first. Terra accuses Christy of being fake, which she refuses to accept.
Lisa Rinna took to her blog to share her thoughts on the season finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I, for one, am sad the season is over, save for the three-part reunion, because Beverly Hills has always been my favorite Real Housewives show. But seriously – this cannot be said enough – I hope and pray Andy Cohen takes out the trash before next season.
Reflecting on the season/experience as a whole, Lisa shared, “We managed to get through Season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills without anyone going to prison! It got close at times, but thankfully, we did it. I went into this promising myself I would tell the truth, own my sh–, and always, ALWAYS come from a place of authenticity. Much like everyone else, I am human, and I make mistakes. Sometimes, I act on emotion before really allowing myself time to process, and that can lead me to say or do things that I’m not always proud of. But I make sure to own what I say and do, learn from the mistake, and hopefully grow into a better person because of it.”
