 Brandi Glanville & Jeff Lewis

Where there is Brandi Glanville, convoluted drama with a million different stories is always lurking nearby. Most recently there is the constantly changing story about whether or not Brandi was fired (or quit or demoted) from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Last week Brandi said she was offered a part-time role but opted against it in order focus on the zillion other amazing opportunities dropping in her lap like a Chippendales dancer. Now she tells Australia’s NW Magazine in her column “Brandi Snaps” that she was fired! 

“This week has been crazy!” Brandi begins. “I talked to Yolanda Foster and Kim Richards. Lisa Vanderpump actually emailed me. She was like the first to email after I got fired, which was very weird. I was shocked, it was very unexpected.”

Lisa Nicole Cloud

Lisa Nicole Cloud and Quad Webb-Lunceford came to blows over the petty background check nonsense on Married to Medicine this week. Neither Lisa nor Quad wrote a Bravo blog this week, but Lisa shared her side of the story on Talking with Tami. Lisa said Quad got a big head when “people made her the fan favorite” and she became “vindictive and manipulative” in order to put on a show (she likes to play victim in my opinion) and remain the favorite. 

On the show, Lisa said she checked Quad‘s background when she considered investing in Picture Perfect Pup. But – shocker – her story has changed.

“Reality TV is a business, and as I’ve always said, it was never personal, it was a business decision. I did a background check on three of the cast mates because I did not know them from a can of paint and I wanted to see who I was on a show with,” admitted Lisa. “I have never revealed anything that I learned either. It was just for my own personal knowledge. The other cast mates did not care. We know it’s part of being on TV that your life is an open book.”

 Bethenny Frankel & Heather Thomson 'Know It Alls'

The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel would like it to be known that her co-stars of full of crap when it comes to F-Bombs and other matters of swearing.  She took to her blog to dish on swearing like sailors, Ramona Singer’s inability to close a deal, what a hot mess Dorinda Medley was, and so much more. 

She starts off confessing that she came across like a smarty pants.  “Although I stand by what I was saying at lunch, I am self-aware and did see that I was particularly aggressive and acting like a know-it-all. That doesn’t change that it was funny how lit up Heather got by it. We had just made up and were in a good place and she couldn’t help jumping on that.” 

Meghan Edmonds rejects Shannon's invite

Meghan Edmonds main storyline on this week’s Real Housewives of Orange County was mainly comprised of her angst about moving again with a man who can barely tolerate her, her inability to continue a lame argument with Shannon Beador (despite acting like a 13-year old on the phone) and standing around looking awkward while Vicki Gunvalson was reeling from the terrible news that her mother had suddenly passed away. In her blog, Meghan discusses deep thoughts, like how “Moving sucks!” and her new found appreciation for “old lady” games. 

Reflecting on her 65th or so house relocation with hubby Jim Edmonds, Meghan shares, “Moving sucks! And watching this episode made me want to throw one of my empty boxes (from yet another move) at the television for minimizing the stress and overall terrible feelings that come with a move.” But, alas! Apparently Jimmy has seen the light about how hard poor wife #3 has it, what with her directing the packing and unpacking of his their property. “I know you hear me say that Jimmy doesn’t do any of the actual moving and that’s why he thinks it’s easy, well he didn’t up until we moved out of our four month rental. That was the first time he unpacked more than one box. And guess what, now he hates moving! Finally! You see him rummaging through a drawer, he wasn’t packing.”

Ok, people! I am watching Secrets and Wives so you don’t have to. You’re welcome! Juuuuust kidding. I know there are one or three of you out there still tuning in to Bravo’s latest “experiment,” so let’s get started on recapping the hot mess of last night’s episode! (I must confess I actually get a kick out of these ladies, God help me.) 

At Fire Island, Liza Sandler and bestie Andi Black are waking up in the same bed, per usual, to dogs and gay best friends pouncing on them. Cori Goldfarb and Susan Doneson are having coffee while reliving the night before, during which Susan took a lot of heat from the ladies about her trashy husband Jonathan’s behavior at Cori’s barbecue last week. All four of the ladies finally slap some orange makeup on and gather for breakfast. Not able to apply her own face shellac back in Long Island is Gail Greenberg, who’s left her 1993 light-up makeup mirror at their Fire Island house. How will she prepare for her Glamour Shots session in time!?!?

Real Housewives of New York cast photo

Yesterday the Real Housewives Of New York taped their reunion. Amid a season of off-the-wall drama, serious friendships ups and downs, major cast changes, and the yet unseen “uncool” utterance, the reunion was sure to be epic. Especially with with 8 Housewives!

The reunion ran all day, beginning in the morning and didn’t wrap until after 9 PM. Andy Cohen had a WWHL taping with Jeff and Jenni scheduled, and raced from the RHONY reunion set, right into the WWHL studio. Talk about pressed for time.
