Last night on theReal Housewives of New York things got rowdy in The Berkshires. Or should I say Ramona Singer went bonkers in The Berkshires. Oh, The Berkshires – who goes there? They're just so gauche! They're so ugh – has anyone even heard of them? What are they, like a truck stop? Do they even have pinot? I mean, we know they don't have air conditioner! Who vacations without a beach? The good people all go to The Hamptons. Just ask Ramona – she's the expert on all things classy and high society. All the best society girls appear on trashy reality shows and behave like, well, trash!
Really, if LuAnn de Lesseps is any kinda friend, she'll stop taking Ramona to aerial yoga and start making her endure regular reading lessons from Class With The Countess! So Ramona happened, in The Berkshires, with the wine glass.
Before all that Sonja Morgan, takes her sexy j downtown for some business lessons from Kristen Taekman's husband Josh. Right off the bat we know this isn't going to go well because Kristen lives in a rental. A rental she can afford, but a rental nonetheless, which makes her a peasant in the eyes of Miss The Toaster Oven That Never Could!
Guess what, guys? Everything is fine with Shannon Beador's marriage! Scratch that, it's more than fine! In fact, things are so great with the newest Real Housewives of Orange County member and her constantly berated hubby that she decided to dedicate her entire Bravo blog as an explanation for that awkward overnight date! I kid, I kid. I can't imagine having my relationships scrutinized and my behavior dissected by strangers. Not to mention, having Bravo cameras in one's bedroom is bound to make anyone chug some Goose!
She begins, "Tonight I get a break from the ladies and you see more of my home life — actually my life AWAY with my husband! Yeah! I was so thrilled that David planned an overnight trip to the St. Regis. He was so thoughtful to have made the arrangements and then surprise me with it! I am happy that you are able to see a more playful side to our relationship this week. David is very funny and makes me laugh a lot — I was literally hysterically laughing the entire time we were away! David likes to tease me, especially in front of other people. I thought it was hilarious when he joked in front of the bellman about 'my' snoring and 'getting into bed.' Whenever we travel (with the kids), he loves to put on the robes that the hotel provides. It was really sweet that he suggested it when we were alone! It's just the presentation and tone when he suggests it — cracks me up!"
Well, it's about damn time! I was starting to wonder if we'd ever meet the elusive Lizzie Rovsek, but finally she made an appearance on Monday's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. I wasn't expecting much, but I loved the way she held her own with the other women. Lizzie even impressed the walking thesaurus and the fitness maven in one fell swoop! She commemorates her inaugural episode in her first ever Bravo blog.
Of her grand, yet clumsy, entrance (a girl after my own heart!) begins, "'Here I am!!!' I definitely wanted to make an impression on my first episode, but falling to the ground at my first party was not my intention. I can blame that on the new pair of platform heels I had on, nerves, or maybe it was that little step down out the patio door at Danielle's house…Ahhhhh, but in any case I hope it shows all of you how real I am. We all fall down now and then, no biggie, shake it off and move on. I was worried how I might appear on the show, but as a whole, you just met Lizzie–and it's pretty close to form. I'm a friendly, happy, outgoing person, self-deprecating at times and a little sarcastic. As you get to know me more as the season continues, I hope you see in me my honest heart and genuine spirit."
Last week things got heated during a spa-trip when Ramona flung champagne at Kristen because she dared to get into Pinot's business. The business she was talking about in front of everyone. If you're laughing at the hypocrisy of Pinot protesting about meddling, you're not alone. But don't worry – Kristen got her back when she splashed Ramona with some holy water hot tub juices.
Tonight Ramona will retaliate again when she flings an entire glass of wine in Kristen's face requiring medical intervention! Well Ramona is apologizing in advance for her behavior during the episode.
Last month Apollo Nida's attorney filed a "waiver of indictment", which basically says he's waiving his right to a trial and it's usually filed when a plea deal has been hammered out. From what we know, the waiver is filed shortly before an official plea is entered before the judge. And that seems to be what is going on here. The waiver documents were filed on April 24th and today it's reported that Apollo plead guilty to some of those initial charges. It looks like it's safe to say he's worked out an agreement but we don't know any further details until they're filed and available online – hopefully tonight or tomorrow.
Last night on 16 and Pregnant, we met Arianna and Maurice, who made a baby after dating for only six weeks. MTV tells us that Arianna is an artsy – cause half her hair is dyed green? – high school senior who can't forgive her boyfriend for impregnating her. Um, she was there too, right? Arianna reminds me of Princess Briana fromTeen Mom 3 – she constantly preaches about what others should be doing while she doesn't do much else besides preach.
Arianna's father took off shortly after she was born – I think she takes her own daddy anger out on Maurice – and her mom was a teen mom. Arianna doesn't like her mom's new husband, so she lives with her grandmother in tiny one-bedroom apartment. Despite everything, Arianna is on track to graduate high school early. She wanted to get her PhD in Psychology prior to becoming pregnant, but due to the time that takes, she now wants to be an RN. Good for her… admirable profession and light years beyond many of her MTV co-stars.
Abby Lee Miller, the star of Lifetime's Dance Moms, has become famous for her aggressive — I say mean, controlling and detrimental to children — style of teaching dance. And Maks has always been the bad boy of DWTS. So when she has some harsh words for front-runners Maks and Meryl Davis, Maks immediately shot back, telling Erin Andrews, ""I really don't care for anything she has to say."
Was anyone surprised that was his response? Really?
