Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies (and their omnipresent hardworking spouses) proved that when push comes to shove and contracts are on the line, they can get along like really, really well. In fact the only people not pasting on their happy faces were Caroline Manzo and husband Albert - who I was surprised to hear speak last night.
Things begin with a wake-up binge drink-a-thon amongst the men. The gang decides they are going surfing despite the freezing cold water and their inebriated state of mind. Everyone except Caroline and Al. They prefer whine to wine. Jacqueline Laurita is also sitting this one out because she feels too fat to wear a wetsuit. Didn’t she have this problem last vacation?
Never willing to spare anyone’s feelings both Teresa Giudice and separated at birth sister-in-law Melissa Gorga both strap on some of their more bodacious, sparkly, and revealing bathing suits. ‘LOOK! I’m not fat!’ they both practically shout. The guys are wiping out left and right when Teresa and Kathy Wakile decide to try out their surfboard skills. Melissa is staying ashore to “keep it sexy,” which apparently equals bedazzled. Very, very bedazzled. Like blindingly so.
Last night’s Big Ang episode wasn’t as lighthearted as the show usually is. There were no jacuzzi spills or drunken bus rides. It was all about A.J.
Ang is beside herself that A.J. is at Riker’s Island for “allegedly” selling drugs. Until he makes bail, she’s watching his allergy ridden dog Kilo. His dog is named Kilo? Again, “allegedly” selling drugs. Perhaps A.J. is just a fan of measurement. Poor Kilo is shedding, and itching, and blind. Ang can’t wait for A.J. to come home and claim his dog.
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago was a whole mess of drama, but thankfully no one got slapped. That’s a plus, right?
The ladies are doing a breast cancer walk in honor of Leah Disimone‘s mom. Renee Fecarotta Russo and Pia Rizza are first to meet Leah. Nora Schweihs and Christina Scoleri are on their way, and Leah hopes that there won’t be any drama. Nora is willing to put her differences aside to support Leah’s mom. Renee isn’t sure she’ll be able to do the same, but she and Pia say that they’ll walk with the group. Nora thinks it’s weird that Renee and Pia are walking arm in arm, and the two ladies separate from the group to get away from Nora’s voice. It’s really sad that they can’t see that the walk should be about Leah’s mom and not their petty fights.
More repercussions for Chad from this weekend’s head butting incident! VH1 just announced that Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson’s upcoming reality show ‘Ev & Ocho‘ has been taken off the schedule.
VH1 issued a statement regarding the matter: “Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.”
Wow. I have to say I’m a little impressed that VH1 isn’t trying to cash in on what could’ve equaled higher ratings for the show.
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD YOU WON’T GET TO SEE THEIR WEDDING PREPARATIONS?
Oh Kardashians. Y’all are so funny. Poor Bruce Jenner is trying to regain relevance by reminding us that he’s not just married to pimp master Kris, he’s also a former Olympian. It’s almost too late for that reminder, but I guess he has the Olympic fanfare to help his cause. Bless his heart.
The former decathlete has been covering the games, and he recently spoke with Access Hollywood about his time in Olympic Village back in the day. Bruce brags, “I was a stud! Let me tell you, I was doing it! Just kicking butt all day long, taking no prisoners.” So basically the exact opposite of how he is now.
New details emerged yesterday, chronicling the escalation of the fight, which ended up with Evelyn being treated for facial lacerations and Chad in jail. According to the police report, things got so heated that Evelyn fled on foot to escape, while Chad circled the neighborhood looking for her, yelling that he didn’t ‘give a f***’ about his career. Evelyn called 911 from a neighbor’s house.
