khloe kardashian blue workout

Like too much Axe Body spray in a middle school boys’ bathroom, the stench of desperation is thick this week as it wafts off of the Kardashian family. Yesterday, we hear Kim Kardashian is “producing” a mental health awareness documentary, #RedFlag. Now today, Khloe Kardashian announces she’s writing an advice book. ‘What advice does she have to offer?’ asks every human being on the earth, in unison. Well, it seems Khloe is going to share her wisdom on topics such as healthy body image and inner beauty. Cause that’s what the Kardashians are known for, ya’ll! Right? 

More specifically (sorta), Khloe plans to offer advice on how women can develop “strength and true beauty” in a “culture that worships skinny,” Khloe’s publisher, Regan Arts, says. Khloe comments, “I am so excited about sharing my philosophy on how I live and the power of strength. I hope to be an inspiration to readers everywhere on how they can create their own true strength and beauty inside and out.” The currently untitled advice book will hit shelves November 3 of this year. Just in time to fill those Christmas stockings! The book launch itself, occurring on May 31 at BookCon, will of course be filmed on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians

Cynthia Bailey in Life Twirls On

Cynthia Bailey used her Real Housewives of Atlanta blog to gush over her role in Kenya Moore‘s pilot Life Twirls On. Apparently nothing else happened in the season finale that was worth a mention.

Cynthia said she’s dabbled in acting over the years but she obviously focused on modeling, adding, “More recently, over the past couple of years I have been cast for different roles, and I have fallen head over heels in love with acting.”

“So when Kenya told me about her pilot and that she was interested in Noelle’s dad, Leon, for one of the roles,” explained Cynthia, “I immediately let her know that I wanted to audition for it. Up until that point, Kenya knew nothing of my acting ambitions, and seemed a bit reluctant to let me try out. I knew that if she gave me the opportunity to audition, I would only have one chance to impress her. I showed up at the audition on time, in character, totally prepared, dressed to impress, and showed out!! I landed the role!!”

Sonja Morgan’s Bravo Blog has been brought to us this week by the Letter “D” for: Defensive, Delusional, and Ditzy. A killer combo designed to win friends and influence facialists! Let’s take a closer look…if we dare.

Lady Morgan opens with her reaction to the ladies’ commentary on her many “business” ventures whilst brunching at Bethenny Frankel’s Hamptons home last episode. “Welcome back to the bitches who brunch!” says Sonja, “I’m disappointed to see that the girls are being vile and continuing to attack me and claim that I do not have legitimate business deals going on. Especially to Bethenny,who has not seen us frequently since she had little Bryn. Gawd forbid Bethenny believes this horse sh–. Luann [de Lesseps], Kristen [Taekman]Heather [Thomson], and Carole [Radiziwill] all claimed that I am not really a businesswoman, that all of my ideas are not coming to fruition, that I don’t work every day, and that I didn’t make the toaster oven.” She adds, “That should get a few laughs from those who know.” Huh? Sonja goes further down the rabbit hole of her argument, saying the girls should’t talk badly about her even if she IS deLUUUUUUSional! “But even if I was not successful and were delusional, as the girls say in Bethanny’s (sic) kitchen, what kind of friends badmouth another friend like that?”

Phaedra Parks

Following the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo caught up with Phaedra Parks for her thoughts on NeNe Leakes on Broadway and the drama surrounding her refusal to explain why she hasn’t taken her boys to see Apollo Nida in prison despite his pleas to the gossip magazines. <eye roll>

When asked if she saw NeNe in Cinderella, Phaedra said, “I most certainly did see NeNe on Broadway, and she was absolutely fantastic, as you would expect. Her performance was dazzling and I was particularly impressed with how she made the role her own. It can be difficult to portray such a well-known character, let alone add your own style and flair to such an established role.”

Luann de Lesseps Talks Brunches, Beautique, and Bethenny in Latest Bravo Blog

In her latest Bravo blog, everyone’s favorite #BeCoolCountess dishes on dueling brunches, ladies’ night out at Beautique, her visit to Ramona’s apartment, and Bethenny Frankel‘s unwelcome run-in with Kelly Bensimon on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York. Commenting first on Ramona Singer stealing a dress from Bethenny’s talk show back-in-the-day, Luann de Lesseps says, “Ramona does have sticky fingers when it comes to that, though. Looking back, if you remember a dress Sonja (Morgan) was buying in Season 2 and how Ramona asked to “look at it” and ended up at the checkout line with it…She took it right out of her hands! Oh, Ramona…you really are a piece of work.” 

As for Brunchgate, Luann maintains that one can never have too many brunch invitations, dahhhhling! “You know, I figured having two invitations to two brunches isn’t that bad of a problem, so if we went to both, we’d make everyone happy.” Lu loves Bethenny’s Hamptons home, her Skinnygirl-sponsored meal, and free giveaways!: “I really like Bethenny’s Hamptons house, and I love the red accents! Her brunch was a classic breakfast with, of course, great cocktails. B was great to entertain me and my guests with all of her SkinnyGirl flair. I thought it was really nice of Bethenny to give us some parting gifts. I took some energy bars but kept it simple and didn’t grab her appliances. Tacky much?” She’s talking to YOU, Radzi. “To each her own…” says the countess, adding that Bethenny also sent her a blender a few weeks later anyway. #wheresthefreetoasters?
