Doctors had bad news this week for beloved Mob Wives star Big Ang (aka Angela Raiola)! Big Ang is being treated for a throat tumor that was recently discovered after she complained of pain. What they found was tumor – the size of a lemon!
Even though the tumor was discovered earlier in the week and it’s reported that surgery will happen (or possibly did happen), she was on hand to promote a new reality show in NYC on Tuesday afternoon.
It’s part two of the Little Women: L.A.reunion show and this time, the men are joining the little ladies to sling some mud. But of course they are!
Back to host part 2 of the reunion, and to go hard at Christy McGinty, is Tanika Ray. We rejoin the group with Lila Call (of Little Women: N.Y.) defending her past relationship with the great and powerful Joe. Terra Jole is still bothered by Lila’s texts & calls to Joewhile Terra and Joe have been in a relationship.Tonya Banksjumps in to tell Lila, “I really wanted to whoop your ass” in Catalina but adds that she “didn’t want to catch a case” so she refrained. Lila asks if Tonya paid a writer for that line and Tonya’s grouchy face hits level 10. “I can be classy and I can be ratchet!” yells Tonya. Lila ignores her at first, then finally snaps, “Just shut up!” to Tonya, which provokes Tonya to hop off the couch and go at her (well, kinda…before a very pregnant Terra fake-holds her back). Instead of assaulting her, Tonya finally ends it all with “You need to take your dildo and go f*ck yourself back to New York!” OMG. These women, especially Tonya, need a bar of soap shoved in their ratchet mouths STAT. Lila’s had enough, so she decides to get up and leave, saying, “I’m better than this.” Terra and Tonya yell “BYE! BYE!” like middle school mean girls while Christy tries to follow Lila out to make sure she doesn’t drink. But Christy stays instead and attempts to address Tonya’s ridiculous behavior…to no avail. Someone needs to pull out a dog bone and tell Tonya to go fetch.
This week we’re seeing a lot of new interviews from The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice. He opened up for the latest issue of Us Weekly and he also sat down with the crew from Extra, too. Joe’s talking about Teresa Giudice’s life in prison as well as how the family is handling her absence.
Extra sat down with Joe in the family kitchen to talk about their life and Teresa’s, with Joe calling her “an amazing woman.” Joe and the girls hung out with the TV crew and played a game with dad during the interview. Joe shared that no matter how strong you try to be, you break down.
Yesterday on social media Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams teased that she had a huge announcement that she’d be making on Dish Nation. So I tuned in, naturally, but keeping in mind that yesterday was April Fool’s Day.
During her segment her co-stars got it out of her that she was engaged. She was wearing a ring and admitted that the lucky guy was an athlete. She also shared that she would bring him to the studio with her on Thursday because he’s in town until Sunday. Then Porsha let it slip that she was pregnant as well. At this point, I’m waiting for her to yell out “April Fool’s, y’all!” But she never does. She even half-jokes about wanting them to edit the part about the pregnancy out for the TV airing of the show because she only wanted to air one announcement, not two.
How did I miss the fact that Melissa Gorga had a jewelry line that actually survived the “idea” phase where many a housewives’ hock is created but never comes to fruition? Clearly, cookbooks and cheap sweet bubbly are immune from this branding backlash phenomenon!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has launched her own line of affordable baubles on HSN, and dare I say the majority of the line is both wearable and budget friendly. I’d have predicted a lot of gaudy CZ at blood diamond prices, but I was pleasantly surprised!
I can’t say I’m surprised to hear that Erica Mena is calling it quits on a little scripted train wreck I like to call Love & Hip Hop. The controversial star spent more time over the past few seasons starting fights, slaying the viewers with ridiculous one-liners, and trying to decide if the lady pond was the best place to swim. However, on the most recent installment, Erica wasn’t starting club brawls…if she was even featured, she was chatting with her son, giving reasonable advice (what?) to her co-stars, and gushing about her upcoming wedding to Lil’ Bow Wow.
Of course, most of the time Erica was just absent. The once wild-eyed, sharp-tongued crazed instigator took a backseat on the show where she was once the focus. If she was filmed, Erica was calm, cool, and collected. I felt like I wasn’t even watching L&HH in terms of Erica’s contribution, but thankfully Rich Dollaz brought me back to reality (the fabricated kind) every week.
Yolanda Foster hasn’t been able to blog much throughout season five of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills due to her struggle with Lyme disease, but she managed to write a doozy of a blog following part one of the reunion. The blog is more about Lyme disease, which she compared to the AIDS epidemic, than the reunion, however. Yolanda also told us a little story about another infection she is battling due to letting a baby cow suck on her chin.
Yolanda explained why she felt it was necessary to attend the RHOBH reunion despite her setback with Lyme disease, “I know the reunion is an important end to the season, so I felt the need to pull up my bootstraps and show up, no matter what. In my mind, keeping my commitment to Bravo and Evolution was very important, even though my body wasn’t ready to get dressed and all dolled up after living in my robe and pajamas for the past four months.”
