What is it about rites of passage when it comes to reality stars? If they aren't releasing their own cookbook, they're getting stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. I guess there are more ways than one to maintain notoriety once a show finishes filming for the season!
All these wrongs against Mariah, never a camera in sight, begs the question… If an insult falls out of someone's mouth and Bravo's cameras are not there to catch it, did it ever really happen? Probably not if Mariah's telling the story.
Quad took to her Bravo blog to address Mariah's latest antics. "If you pay close attention you can see that it’s always the same story, different characters – 'I made him/her relevant' is the mantra. First it was Toya, then Brian Lamar, Reco Chapple, and now me. Mariah called herself a star maker – too bad she couldn’t use those powers to help herself."
The former spouses are locked in a contentious argument that led to bitter finger pointing that frankly (no pun intended) makes both of them look like crappy parents! It was rumored that their attorneys botched up a filing to make the courtroom proceedings private and the press would have free reign – well that appears to be the case!
With both spouses repped by famed divorce attorneys the argument became about who is the biggest famewhore, sadly. Bethenny's attorney Allen Mayefsky portrayed Jason as the vengeful ex, spiteful over losing the limelight when Bethenny filed for divorce, thus ending their reality TV career. Which seems odd considering it was widely reported that Jason refused to sign on for a third season of Bethenny Ever After as Bethenny was already pursuing her talk show (now also canceled).
Rumors have been swirling for a while now that show matriarch Lisa Vanderpump wants to leave. Her dissatisfaction with her castmates along with the success of her spinoff Vanderpump Rules means that she no longer needs RHOBH. After Lisa skipped the Bravo Upfronts to open her new restaurant PUMP and gave an interview sharing that she still had not forgiven Brandi Glanville, there's been lots of talk that she will officially leave the show. And Bravo is doing everything in their power to keep her!
Andy Cohen visited PUMP where he had dinner with Lisa and their mutual close friend Lance Bass. The reason: Andy is desperate to keep Lisa on RHOBH and is hoping that he could use Lance to help persuade Lisa to stay! TMZ called it a "last ditch effort" on Bravo's part to convince Lisa to remain on RHOBH.
Whether it is over a chair, or a stick up someone's rear, the girls from the Real Housewives of Orange County just can't seem to all get along this season. Leave it to Tamra Barney to tell it like it is, even if she is in the middle of all the fighting, which is exactly what she does in her latest Bravo blog.
Here is where we are at. Vicki Gunvalson is being her usual, rude, obnoxious self to the new girl, Lizzie. And Heather Dubrow is looking down on the other new girl, Shannon Beador for some reason. (Btw — this is not a good look for Heather. I have always liked her, but this year she is kind of being a stuck-up bully to Shannon.)
The girls gathered for a hoedown at the Dubrow Ranch — aka where Heather is building her new mansion — and that is where all the girls decided to air their grievances.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York we bid adieu to Milou. But it was more than saying goodbye to Sonja Morgan's dog, it was about saying goodbye to toxic relationships and living in the past. In short, Sonja made the decision that she was not going to end up a modern-day Miss Havisham and was instead going to l-i-v-e as a modern-day Auntie Mame!
Kristen Taekman is in the throes of many struggles – I mean Ramona Singer maimed her and her husband is the very definition of douchelord in the dictionary – I promise! Look it up – his photo is in there.
She meets LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson for some shopping where she recaps her Ramonapology, you know here's some flowers, gotta whiz! Hamptons! Celebrities! And there was poor Kristen sitting at the table like, "but… I put on this dress. And you – you have anger management issues!" It was too late, Ramona had already downed her glass of wine? water? Water which she turned into wine? Does she have that power based on the sheer will of her fortitude? I mean how does Ramona even get a wine glass in a tea shop? Does she carry her own, in her purse, for emergency purposes? So many questions…
