Kandi Burruss celebrated her 40th birthday with a party full of her besties this week. Unfortunately, Kandi’s birthday week also fell in the middle of some other momentous occasions – 1: The birthday of Ayden Nida; 2: the Bravo Upfronts, which meant several of Kandi’s fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars were unable to attend.
Kandi didn’t seem to mind sharing her birthday. She was happy to celebrate with her ride or dies who threw her a surprise birthday dinner and accept the copious social media shout-outs she got from friends and frienemies alike.
Kandi’s consolation prize also included Sheree Whitfield in attendance at her party – and a little bit of She By SheBroke makes everything better, right?! (I seriously LOVE Sheree!).
Oh Ramona – there really is no defending your actions. Not the way you behaved at Dorinda and John’s party – the one you weren’t invited to, but certainly made sure to get thrown out of. Nor the way you savaged your supposed friend SonjaMorgan. Nor the vulgar comments you made about Luann in order to make her look bad, and the desperate way you glommed onto creepster Rey in the hopes of unearthing more salacious gossip. Dorinda said Ramona needs a hobby and a life. So Ramona got active – on Twitter.
Last night’s sit down between Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan was hard to watch. It was hard to watch Sonja cry, it was hard to watch Bethenny give it to her straight, but it was needed. I hope Sonja appreciates that Bethenny is always going to be blunt with her and sometimes give her the reality smack that she needs.
Bethenny reflected on her business journey in her Real Housewives of New Yorkblog this week. “Oh what a tangled web we weave. It was crazy to watch the evolution of my hustle from a CT supermarket to Union Square. The stakes are way higher, but the hustle is the same. Business is tough. I love what I do, and I am 100% invested, and it is my mission to help and inspire female entrepreneurs. This entails being honest about what it takes. Even now I struggle to make things work, and I have drive and determination, and I’m completely committed.”
Teresa shared the photo above of herself with her mother and her brother,Joe Gorga, and her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, on Instagram, adding, “With my beautiful family.” Teresa referred to the low-key birthday celebration as the “sweetest” and shared more pictures of herself with her “beautiful” family. Last month, everyone in Teresa’s life was “great,” this month, it’s “beautiful.” She’s a woman of many words (except for accountable – she hasn’t quite mastered that one yet). Check out the pictures below.
Last night the reality stars converged in West Hollywood to celebrate with OK! Magazine’s So Sexy LA party. Stars from Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Teen Mom and more turned out for the event.
Shahs stars GG Gharachedaghi, Shervin, and MJ Javid were in attendance, but MJ’s fiance Tommy Feight sat this one out. GG got into the spirit of the event, wearing her best OK! pink bra under a somewhat see-through black dress.
Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham smooched her on-again/off-again boyfriend Simon as she posed for pics.
AlthoughJax Taylor wasn’t photographed on the pink carpet, he was headed to the event, which was also attended by his co-starsJames Kennedyand Lala Kent. The show just started filming the new season yesterday and Jax had some choice words for James ahead of the event, “If I don’t kill that piece of sh$t tonight, he should play the lottery.” So, clearly James is still pushing every last button of Jax’s. 😉
I was clearly in the minority, but I appreciated Kristen Taekman for representing the ‘normal girl’ perspective on Real Housewives Of New York. It turns out, Kristen agrees she was way too sane for that Turtle Timey mess!
