If you’re like me you simply can’t imagine Vanderpump Rules without its poster child mean girl villainess Stassi Schroeder. Reading the Regina George script to a tee, adding one part alcohol, one part really, really bad relationship judgment, and one-part plastic surgery to balance the whole thing out.
There were rumors that after last season Stassi was done with the show. She quit SUR and moved to NYC to be with new boyfriend Patrick and announced she was ready to move on, but once a famewhore, never reformed, right?! So of course she was brought back to stir up trouble!
The new grownup Stassi has moved on from the previous seasons’ antics. Stassi will not be working at SUR and describes herself as an “outsider” this season who didn’t participate in the majority of the mayhem. Although she will confirm that the third season, premiering November 3rd, has wrapped shooting.
Perpetual victim Leah wants Teen Mom 2 fans to believe she’s a perfect wife and a doting mother, but I, for one, never believed the act she puts on for the cameras. Rumor has it that she’s managed to hide a lot from the cameras over the years, including smoking, neglecting her kids, cheating, and abusing drugs, but it has all started to catch up with her. Who will Leah blame this time?
So, I received a text last night from my dear friend Will (not Folks–ew–a.k.a. T-Rav’s consultant turned nemesis) asking if I’d seen Thomas Ravenel’s latest campaign commercial. As many of you know, the Southern Charm Lothario and par for the course embarrassing South Carolina politician is running for United States Senate. He wrote, “PLEASE tell me you’ve seen T-Rav’s political ad. He’s holding his baby, talking about how he doesn’t ‘run away from his responsibilities.’ YouTube it. Totally worth it.” (Un)fortunately, I didn’t have to YouTube anything, as the seems to run on a constant loop on any given channel…and he was right–totally worth it.
In the ad, T-Rav goes on to say he’s done things he’s proud of as well as things he’s not proud of (I wonder in which category Southern Charm falls). Well, yesterday news erupted that made this campaign ad particularly hilarious…and it involved Thomas likely doing something he’s not proud of while holding his daughter…allegedly. According to a recent accusation, T-Rav drunkenly fell in his pool while holding his baby (she’s fine!) before assaulting girlfriend Kathryn Dennis’ stylist. Good times!
“Sugar Bear and I have decided to take some time apart to figure out some things in our relationship,” they said in a statement. “We are taking things day by day but regardless of what happens the girls will always be our #1 priority. We want to thank ya’ll for your support.”
Well, that support may soon be over, because recent reports claim that Mama June has moved on and it is with a man from her past.
“So, I just got back from a little trip to Amsterdam with the other ‘Housewives’. I can’t tell you anything about the trip except I have a boyfriend!” Brandi gushed to Australia’s News Weekly magazine, sharing that her handsome and wealthy man child may be “100 percent Mr. Right” on twitter.
This season on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles is like the final season of Parenthood. Waiting for something awful to happen. Unfortunately, we already know how things end on this show and we must wait to exhale every time Josh Flagg comes on the screen. Every phone call, every conversation, every mention of his grandmother’s name, Edith, is gut wrenching. And this week’s episode is no different. We know that her health is failing. And we know that Josh is carrying on with his work and life because that is what she would want him to do. While it is hard not to see how much pain he is in, the show must go on. A little trip down the Pacific Coast Highway just might be the distraction that he needs right now.
Back in Beverly Hills,David Parnes, who is out for a jog with Maxi and Bella, is summonsed by James Harrisback to the office. Their ‘Rock Star’ client, Zach Vella, is in town from the East Coast. Yes, that Zach Vella! Fredrik Eklund’s number one developer on Million Dollar Listing New York. Where is Fredrik?? Why is he not with him in California? Ryan Serhant would be there if it were his client, right? Well, not so fast. This time it’s personal. Zach is searching for a place to put down roots with his fiancé, Michelle. Our poker faced developer is looking for a turnkey 4-5 bedroom home with lots of privacy and an ‘LA feel’ in Trousdale or west of Bel Air. ‘Find a steal’ he tells the boys. Easy peasy! James is concerned as there is a drought of inventory in the market for $10-15m homes in these areas.
