Over on the East Coast: Bravo reality stars Arzo Anwar (Blood, Sweat and Heels) and Dr. Tabasum Mir (The Singles Project) have their hand prints immortalized at Buca di Beppo restaurant in Times Square, NYC. RHONY star Ramona Singer was photographed at the Hamptons Magazine Cover Party held at Barn & Vine in Bridgehampton.
The Teen Mom OG star, who has a way with words – and everything else, announced her split from Simon on instagram to celebrate “National Ex Day,” accompanied by a photo of the two of them kissing. Farrah praised the moment as fond memories.
If you were wondering how long you’d have to wait for a new season of Little Women: LA, wonder no longer! The show returns next month already! And in a double dose, as Terra’s Little Family kicks off another season at the same time! Lifetime is mixing things up with the Little Women: LA season 3 cast, adding two new ladies to the series – Jasmine and “Freakabritt,” aka Brittney Guzman!
The cast shot new promo pics and have shared several on social media, letting the cat out of the bag that there are two new cast members. It also would appear that Traci Harrison is stepping back a little. She’s not featured in the main cast photos/promos, but she’s been included at some of the events they’ve filmed, according to the Instagram of her fellow co-stars. Maybe this is Lifetime’s version of “friend of” instead of “full time member.”
I can’t believe it’s the season 2 finale of Blood, Sweat, and Heels! Is it just me, or was this season waaaaaaay too short? Bravo, please give us more of these ladies next season (and please, please let there be a next season, period).
In full disclosure, I have to admit I’m connecting to Mica Hughes‘ recent loss of her 91-year old grandmother in a special way tonight, as I lost my own 91-year old grandmother just this morning. A second mother to me, she went peacefully, surrounded by love and family and I got to see her right up until the end. I know reality television is good fodder for snark (don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of it with this finale!), but it’s poignant to realize that we’re all connected in strange, surreal, and plain old human ways too. Now, on to the show. Which tonight, friends, is one HOT mess. 🙂
Lisa Nicole defended her decision to run a background check on Quad during Married to Medicine, tweeting, “Background checks are a standard business protocol in business. No malice intended.”
On WWHL, Quad replied, “I think that’s a good cover for She Who Shall Not Be Named. We all saw my investors last season and she was not one of them. We were not doing business together whatsoever. She actually wanted a little something to go into the reunion with last year, but you will catch that tea later.”
For the Real Housewives of New York, birthdays last all month long and involve multiple meltdowns and confrontations among one’s closest “friends.” Dorinda Medley’s birthday was no different, with both dinners at Petrossian her Berkshires home ending in awkwardness and tears. Dorinda starts this week’s Bravo blog admitting, “I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that my 50th birthday weekend is over. Seriously. I don’t even want to comment on it. Clearly, the girls used my birthday as more of an exorcism opportunity than a celebration,” adding, “And I thought Ramona [Singer’s] birthday went on forever…Glad mine is done and we finally moved onto Christmas parties and product launches. Next year, I might just charge for admission. Considering how it went this year, I’ll just walk in and take a bow. (OK, I’m done with that. Thanks Madge!)”
“Speaking of Ramona, I can’t tell you how happy I am for her and Avery. They’ve both grown up so nicely, right?” Dorinda comments. Despite Dorinda’s daughter, Hannah’s oft-derided comments on camera this season, Dorinda says that “Avery is such a breath of fresh air. Especially considering how New York tends to affect kids of her generation. It’s great to watch their relationship grow.” As children grow, Dorinda shares, “you find yourself having ‘girl talk’ with your own daughters and they really become your best friends. I’ve been there already and it’s really gratifying. Look at Luann [de Lesseps] and Victoria, Ramona and Avery and me and Hannah. (Bethenny [Frankel] will get to that point before she knows it, I guarantee it!)” She does warn that, “In the end, children ‘kinda’ like to know what’s going on, but you have to be sensitive to the ‘TMI.’ In a way, those boundaries between mother and daughter completely evaporate, which does have its pros and cons, I guess, but it’s still refreshing. I think Ramona handled this one beautifully and I am very proud of how she’s juggling it all.”
