“So Carole gave me the recap that the Countess is back. I respectfully disagree. The old ‘uncool’ countess doesn’t say, ‘Be cool’ when naked men are throughout the house,” the veteran Real Housewives Of New York star cites. “Luann’s only issue was that she felt her friends were ratting her out trying to catch her doing something. Her issue wasn’t that she was trying to hide whatever took place for the eight hours prior to that moment. There is an important distinction.”
The network is moving forward with plans to restructure the show, which was recently renewed for a 15th season before Donald’s political aspirations severed his relationship with the network. NBC is hoping to find a replacement business mogul host (or hostess) who also has celebrity prowess.
The network was reportedly hoping that viewer fascination with the Duggar brood and the popularity of eldest girls Jana, Jill and Jessa was enough to salvage the already controversial show, but the fallout from the discovery that Josh molested his sisters and other girls as a teen refused to die-down. In fact it seemed to be exacerbated by Josh’s wife Anna’s fourth pregnancy and the Duggar family’s refusal to really confront the situation honestly or to treat their daughters as victims.
Today the network finally announced that the Duggars would no longer be returning to TV. This morning a network representative informed the Associated Press that the Duggars “will no longer appear on the air.”
This week on Married to Medicine, we saw the aftermath of Lisa Nicole Cloud and Quad Webb-Lunceford‘s scuffle. Pretty much, they both managed to embarrass themselves for the second week in a row: Quad, with a bandage the size of Rhode Island on her face, and Lisa, with her pathetic outburst at the strip club. In her blog, Quad ripped Lisa apart for her behavior.
“This episode was loaded with truths,” blogged Quad. “As I said in my previous blog, mature adults, hear both sides, apply logic, and then draw a conclusion. Hats off to Jackie and Simone for not wanting to divide the group, but that was already done by Toya. As you saw, Tacky and Heav joined She Who Shall Not Be Named indulging and instigating gossip as she lied and bragged about what happened during last week’s altercation. They were delighted by the news they were hearing like three blind mice or should I say three hating mice hopping on gossip like it was a small piece of cheese. #MessyBootsDown”
On last night’s bittersweet Flipping Out, it’s all about the circle of life. While Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward get serious about taking steps toward having a child via surrogacy, they get some devastating news about Jeff’s beloved 14-year old cat, Stewie.
At Gramercy, Jeff, Jenni Pulos, and Gage are getting the day started with (what else?) checklists of appointments. Their first appointment of the day is with the Egg Hunter, LA’s resident surrogacy coordinator who helps future parents “hunt” for the right woman as an egg donor. It’s like online dating, but for Jeff, it’s more like Grindr. Because he’s more worried about Who’s Hot and Who’s Not rather than who gets 4.0s in college, pays taxes, and votes. Gage is just worried that if they’re not discerning, the worst case scenario would be “to have a little Joe.” Since Jeff is a “little older” (cough, cough) than Gage, he’s going to be the sperm donor for Baby #1, while Gage will cough up the goods for Baby #2. “You gotta understand, I am not a young person,” says Jeff. “When you’re dropping the kid off at college, you’ll be dropping me off at the Home.”
To soften the blow of the cancellation of NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches, Bravo is giving us Reza Farahan and Tabatha Coffey. They won’t be on a road trip together, because I would like to think not even Bravo would do that to our beloved Tabatha, but they have each scored a potential new show.
Bravo announced three new shows in development yesterday – Yours, Mine or Ours (same premise as Love It or List It on HGTV), Heir Heads, and Tabatha’s Life Take Over (similar to Iyanla: Fix My Life). Check out the press release below and let us know which of these new reality shows you plan to watch.
Lots of exciting happenings over at Vanderpump Rules, which was just officially renewed for its fourth season! Filming has been underway for a while now, but they got the official re-up notice from Bravo and now it’s full-speed ahead.
