Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County we met newbie Lizzie Rovsek, who definitely proved she's no trophy wife! Other newbie Danielle Gregorio hosted an Ugly Sweater Christmas party, which college kids have been doing since the dawn of Greek civilization. Instead of cranberry Jello shots, Danielle is serving cranberry champagne punch with very expensive 'champs', something that really chaps Heather Dubrow's notion of propriety. She's going to have to send Danielle an instructional guide to Champs, complete with illustrations.
Tamra Barney is pretty bent out of shape about having to participate in an ugly sweater affair – this coming from the woman who hosted an 80's themed Bunko party. "I'm not really into ugly," Tamra complains. I guess Tamra only supports ugly when it comes to her own ugly personality!
Well, at least there is some silver lining on the Guidice's excessive legal issues. A Bergen County, New Jersey Superior Court judge has dismissed the charges in a fraud case against Teresa Guidice. Woo hoo! Oh wait. I guess I should mention that they weren't those charges in that case. Small victories though, right?
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was cleared of any involvement in the mortgage fraud allegations brought against her by Juicy Joe's former business partner Joseph Mastropole. Fortunately, most of the charges against Joe have been dropped as well. Unfortunately, this case has nothing to do with the multitude of bankruptcy fraud charges which could mean jail time for Joe and Tre.
My, oh my! I'd forgotten so much about how last season's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta ended, so I was like a kid at Christmas watching the highlights. The three-way proposal! The three-way three-way! If this season is half as dramatic as last, we are in for a train wreck. Last night's premiere didn't disappoint. Stevie J. is certainly stepping up in the world, isn't he? He's living in the White House with Joseline Hernandez. Their shared mansion is 18,000 square feet, and the pair pour champagne for breakfast. It's a long way from Benzino's sofa! Joseline reveals that the couple got married in a courthouse, and she's ready for a lavish wedding. The dress she wants is only $25,000. A steal! Stevie wants a wedding celebration too, but first he'd like to focus on a shared birthday party since they were born one day apart.
Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are "back together" for the sake of their son Carter. Of course, by "back together" I mean they are living in the same house and co-parenting their newborn, but Rasheeda has banished him to a separate bedroom and I can guarantee you he's not getting any love from her. I'm sure he's keeping himself sane courtesy of the threesome memories from No Neck's cabin. Here's hoping Kirk doesn't act like as much of a douche as he did last season!
The 2014 Met fundraiser gala (aka Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala) is tonight and Kim Kardashian took things up a few notches this year! Kim and (husband?) Kanye West just arrived and although we don't know Kim's dress designer yet, we can say it's a better look than last year's granny couch floral frock! Updated – Kim's gown is Lanvin with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
Also arriving in style: La La Anthony in purple, Giuliana Rancic in black, Ivanka Trump in green andKendall Jenner in a champagne number. Oh and Andy Cohen scored an invite, too.
Take a peek at the photos and cast your vote on Kim's dress below.
Lizzie makes quite a first impression with the ladies as she attends Danielle's Ugly Sweater Christmas party.
And Lizzie wants to make an impression with the viewers as well. The Sun Kitten swimwear designer and former Miss Kentucky shared 13 facts about herself with Bravo's The Dish! Including that she's not your average beauty queen – she's actually very smart – and she's a marathon runner.
Despite her cancer scare Lisa Nicole Cloud is going through with the WEN (Women's Empowerment Network) conference because she needs a distraction. Of course her first mistake was including her co-workers in the guest list. She describes the conference as a "who's-who" event, so naturally she left Mariah off the guest list. Lisa Nicole shares that the event raises 5-figures annually for charities benefiting women and children. And after this year all of those good deeds will be eclipsed by ill-behaving Bravo famewhores! Reality TV – gotta love it!
