Traci is going to meet with Drew to talk about their recent blow-up, and she calls them a "family." She reveals that she was so in love with Drew, but I don't think she needs to be using the past tense. Traci gives a little history on their past before dropping off Little Drew with the baby-sitter. Over lunch, she tells Drew that she deserves better than seeing him with different girls and groupies every night. He reminds her that they haven't been a couple in seven years, because she clearly thinks they are still together. When Drew straight-up says he just wants to discuss her investing in his sneaker boutique, she storms out of the restaurant, promising to give him her money once she's calmed down. Yeah, that sounds like a great idea!
Mimi Faust is on a date with her new boyfriend Nikko. She reveals that he's a blast from the past, and she hopes that he will understand that she comes with baggage…in the form of Stevie J. Nikko realizes that everyone has skeletons in their closet, but his aren't haunting him like Mimi's are. Mimi admits that Stevie has given her some major trust issues, and she's worried that Nikko is a music producer like her ex.
You know how those Kardashian sisters roll…always in the midst of a lawsuit. Well it seems that their inability to be creative habit of borrowing ideas is rubbing off on they friend and E! prince Ryan Seacrest who finds himself on the receiving end of an infringement suit.
At least he's not alone, as Khloe KardashianOdom and husband Lamar Odom are about to find themselves in the same boat as dear, ol' Ryan. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so the state of New York should feel extra special right about now!
It's so hard adjusting to life as a Housewife! I mean all the media appearances and fancy parties and fabulous vacations paid for by Bravo…. oh and of course the totally insane women you're forced to work with!
Lydia McLaughlin is struggling with the curse of the newbie, i.e. forging alliances and getting to know your co-stars all while staying likeable to the viewers. It is not an easy path she walks…
"It is more difficult than I thought it would be!" the Real Housewives of Orange County star admitted to People. "I was just like, 'Yeah, what do I have to lose?! What would people not like about me?! I'm just going to be myself, and I'm going to be positive, and have a different type of voice!'"
Yes, I find Mariah to be too aggressive and extremely unlikable, but that does not mean I'm blind to Kari andToya's antics. Do I sometimes think the snotty comments directed at Mariah are warranted though? Yes. Definitely. More than likely, if you do not like Koya, you cheer on Quariah. To each their own. If I were Kari or Toya, I'd completely eliminate Mariah (and by extension Quad) from my life, but I get that they all need to interact for the sake of the show. Lucky us!
Quad and Gregory kick off the season finale with yet another disagreement over starting a family. He wants a baby; she wants to be a reality TV star. Quad says, besides all that "pushing, tugging, pulling, and gaining weight," there are too many issues in this group of women to bring in kids of her own. All is right in Quad's world as long as she has an audience (says me) and her dogs (says her). There's nothing wrong with that, at all, but my goodness did these two ever talk about expectations, goals, family, etc. before they got married?
Last night Andy Cohen sat down the ever-so-crazy ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey for a little tell-all dish session and some word association. Word association was the best part and if Teresa Giudice's skill at the game is any indication of how she did on the SAT's, well… errrr… yeah.
Other than word association, the flashback photos were A-MAZ-ZING. Lord knows I love an 80's Jem & The Holograms hairstyle. And speaking of 80's, 'Vacations all I ever wanted; Vacation time to get away… from RHONJ before it even started!' (Courtesy of The Bangles).
