Whether you know her as Erika Girardi or Erika Jayne, one thing that’s clear about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is that she is a very vocal advocate for LGBT rights. Not only is Erika a genuine supporter of the gay community, but the community also loves her back. It was only fitting that Erika served as the headliner for Dallas Gay Pride.
Erika was the perfect person for this role because she is an ally who cares about the obstacles the community faces and she is also an energetic entertainer. A lot of us know Erika because she joined the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she built her career performing at LGBT-friendly venues.
Last night’s 90 Day Fiance took us across the globe to Morocco, where Nicole and Azan are finding out the unexpected places internet “dating” can lead – like deserts, no hand holding, and jail. Also, Anfisa laid down the law for Jorge, who has to decide if there can be romance without finance. (Psssst, Jorge: The short answer with this chick is NO, or rather, NYET!)
In Morocco, Nicole is trying her best to pretend that Azan is in love with her. This is the first time the couple has met in person, so sh*t just got real! Nicole is staying at a local hotel for 5 weeks, but she’ll have to play by the rules. According to the Muslim tradition in Azan’s culture, there can be no public displays of affection, but Nicole tries her best to maul Azan in the privacy the hotel courtyard. She even sneaks in a smooch, which makes Azan look like he is going to faint. Not in the good way.
The first viewer question asks why Melissa loved Rosie and Kathy last season when they stood up for her, but this season she’s dropping them. “I’m not dropping them. I feel like we have grown apart, I’m not gonna lie about that. They actually stopped calling me to start that off. Sometimes people just grow apart and we didn’t have a big fight. I love them very much – they’re like family – they ARE family to us. I feel like what goes on between them and Teresa runs deep down the line. Like before I was even around, generations.
Melissa Gorga has been struggling all season to find a way to keep her family and her business endeavors in balance. She shares in her latest blog that they’re still in a work in progress.
She starts off, “Watching these last two episodes you really get to see the struggle Joe and I have been going through balancing both work and family life. Our babies are now all in school and are growing up so fast.”
New York Fashion Week has come to an end…with a bit of controversy when “IT” girls Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid walked down the Marc Jacobs runway in fake multi-colored dread locks. People of the Twitter (like Children of the Corn but worse) didn’t appreciate the look.
“Why does Marc Jacobs think it’s okay to hire a bunch of white models and give them faux dreadlocks for his show?” asked one Tweeter. Were you bothered by the look?
