We’re down to the wire on Around the World in 80 Plates. It was an episode with fewer “chefs” and fewer exotic locales the viewers don’t get to see enough of, in my opinion. The contestants find themselves in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the next leg of their journey.
Before heading to Argentina, the chefs must break into two teams of two. Avery Pursell, as the most valuable chef, gets to pick her partner, and she chooses her always ally Nookie Postal. She knows just how strategic he can be. That means that John Vermiglio and Liz Garrett will be paired together. Nookie has an emotional phone call with his wife and kids before leaving Hong Kong.
Tonight, dear readers, you're in for a treat – it's the motherload of Real Housewives of New Jersey posts! We've got it all, but most of all we've got salacious and gory EXCLUSIVES about whose living a lie on national TV. That would be all of them. Oh, we've also got more Caroline Manzo acting like a bulldog. It wouldn't be RHONJ without that!
First up, last week Melissa Gorga hosted a beautiful birthday party for her daughter Antonia. We all saw Melissa getting beautified for a six-year-old's birthday party and then strapping on her best hoochie heels. Melissa admitted that her daughter's parties are always a "lavish" affair.
Are they lavish enough for Kennedy Caroline Armstrong? Likely not. Watching from home, you know Kennedy was thinking "That bitch can't touch me. I had a mother effing horse."
Anyway, our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Melissa only throws parties for her daughter and that her Joe Gorga's parents weren't even invited to the party! Is that because it wasn't anywhere near Antonia's real birthday?
"Antonia's party was just for the cameras," our source shares. "Melissa never throws her kids big parties. Her boys have never even had a birthday party. The baby had no 1st birthday and no 2nd birthday party! Not even cake at the house," our source assures us.

VH1‘s newest reality TV stars Nicole Murphy, Andrea Kelly, and Jessica Canseco continue to open up about their public divorces. Nicole is the one who brought them all together for Hollywood Exes. She introduced Mayte Garcia, ex-wife to Prince, Sheree Fletcher, who was married to Will Smith, and Jessica to Andrea in the season premiere.
“All of women have been in similar situations where we’ve all been married to high profile men. We can connect on different levels and can experience some of the same things. Andrea turns on the radio and R Kelly is playing or Mayte hears Prince playing in a store,” says Nicole. “You get used to it and it becomes part of your life.”
Nicole, Andrea, and Jessica talk to RadarOnline about dealing with public divorces.
Nicole‘s divorce from Eddie Murphy had its awkward moments in the beginning, but they’re on good terms now.
“I am not complaining because I have had a great and happy experience with my ex-husband and I have no regrets,” says Nicole. “Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved. We can be in the same room and hang out, it’s all good!”
What do you get when you mix Lisa Vanderpump‘s best buddy Mohamed Hadid and the Shahs of Sunset’sSammy Younai? Why a $58 million mansion, of course! The home was developed by Mohamed and featured on the first season of Shahs when he asked Sammy to oversee construction while he was out of town. According to jewcy.com, the monstrosity boasts an indoor pool that smells like lemons and a pantry within the pantry. I think it’s safe to say that I am way too poor to even be writing about this!

Reunions often descend into a contest of who is the worst of the bunch. And this one was no exception. When the level of vitriol reaches the extreme harpy stage – it’s time to recast. We’re waiting, Andy Cohen…
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County no one redeemed themselves or came across as a grown woman. Does it ever happen that way? Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney are took their Over-The-Hill Barbie act on the road and switched hair for the day. I think Tamra got her wig from the Dolly Parton synthetic collection on QVC. They also wore the same color dress. Was it an act of solidarity?
Whomever did Tamra‘s make up should be fired, because she looked 55 trying to look 45. Not cute.
Also, what was up with Heather Dubrow‘s eyebrows? Girl, the botox needs to stop and don’t try to play it off as a tweezer malfunction. We know you had unsupervised alone time with Terry’s botox collection after a couple glasses of wine. Besides, don’t rich girls wax, not tweeze?
I also have to comment on Heather‘s country music star circa 1994 hair. This is a good lesson – do not let Gretchen style your hair, ladies! Or choose your dress.
If you blinked, grabbed a snack, or called Iowa to warn them Farrah was on the way, you probably missed Catelynn‘s contribution to this episode.
Butch announces he’s off to find a job. That’s the end of the Butch scenes, which is a darn shame. Next week’s previews show Butch flabbergasted that somebody ran a background check on him, so he’s either having issues finding employment or he’s heading back to the slammer.
Catelynn’s grandmother comes for a visit. While she’s there, Catelynn and Tyler‘s adoption counselor Dawn calls to invite them to attend an adoption support group meeting. I was really hoping Catelynn’s grandmother and Dawn were setting Catelynn up, and instead of support group, they were whisking her away to What Not To Wear.
