Bravo's new and highly anticipated reality series Ladies of London premieres tonight. The cast of six socialites includes Caroline Stanbury, Marissa Hermer, Juliet Angus, Caprice Bourret, Annabelle Neilson, Noelle Reno, and Julie Montagu.
According to Bravo: "Ladies of London follows a group of elite British socialites and American expats who run in similar social circles but are worlds apart. From weekend getaways in the English countryside, to high tea at one of London’s exclusive polo-clubs, both groups adhere to London’s strict unwritten rules of engagement where reputation is everything. Although they lead lives of unimaginable wealth, in London’s high society, fortune has less influence than bloodlines and respect is not easily earned."
My favorite quotes so far: "If you are not from here, well then, you're just royally screwed" and "I consider royals to be some of my closest friends." Um, because most close friends of the royals are on Bravo, no? HAHAHA! This is going to be so. much. fun. I cannot wait. Check out the Ladies of London cast photos and bios and trailer below.
Now, Dimitri has filed a lawsuit against Camille claiming that she made the whole thing up and in doing so has damaged his reputation. He is suing for defamation, malicious prosecution, fraud and more….
If you didn't catch last week's Real Housewives of New York City, Carole Radziwill breaks it down for you in her latest Bravo blog. She touches on the amazing array of nicknames the girls have for Ramona Singer, the hilarious — and ridiculous — questions that Ramona thought were appropriate for Carole to ask prospective interns and the funeral that was held for Sonja's dog, Millou.
Heather Thomson and LuAnn DeLesseps met up with Kristen Taekman following her sit-down with Ramona over her tendency to throw wine and wine glasses at her. What better way to get the goods than straight from Kristen. Although Carole wasn't there, she was more than happy to share her opinions on having a sit-down with Ramona.
So, today's good news is, Farrah has more to say about her book and life. The bad news is that I have pictures from Farrah's 23rd birthday party too!
Why did Farrah decide to write an erotic trilogy? "The whole sex symbol – that hype – and I'm single and 23, I felt now is the proper time for me to write about some fantasies and some great things that luckily I turned into a positive." Why I love Farrah so much – she never fails to turn "great" things into "positives".
Last night was our first introduction to the season that Bravo hopes will redeem Real Housewives of New Jersey's viewership. After season 5 suffered from sinking ratings because of stale drama and regurgitated storylines the network has infused new and recycled blood into the franchise and given us orange-er skin, more be-sprayed hair, and a let's be happier facade!
Everyone is treating Teresa Giudice with the nice-ies – maybe it's because they recognize that this may be her last season due to jail time and the throne will be open for a new RHONJ queen! Dina Manzo is back to be Teresa's lady in waiting, but she also has a whole new lease on life because she's single and ready-ish to mingle. Mingle with species other than cats – of both the hairless and ferocious Jersey tigers out for her blood varieties! I missed Dina – I like her dry candor. And her cats.
Last night was the premiere of Kandi's Wedding. Unfortunately what is supposed to be a joyful occasion for the couple has been usurped by drama and negativity! Of course Mama Joyce is doing everything in her power to destroy Kandi Burruss' happiness; from telling Kandi she's fat, to accusing Todd Tucker's parents of being a retired pimp and ho. Seriously Mama Joyce said Todd's mother Sharon was a former "working girl" who had trained Todd to hustle for Kandi's money. And Todd's now deceased father was once her pimp! If I were Sharon I would be getting an attorney on the phone immediately! #LawsuitByBravo
Other than Mama Joyce, Kandi's BFF and bridesmaid Carmon has been shoved into the role of impromptu wedding planner. Kandi tells her team (which includes manager Don Juan) that she wants to plan her entire Coming To America themed wedding in 5 weeks – and to save money (since Kandi is a girl who loves a deal!) she's decided to skip the high-priced wedding planners and rely on her assistant/bridesmaid Carmon and another employee, her event coordinator Johnny who has done a few simple weddings in the past. Oh lord – this spells trouble in both Zamundan and English!
Here's hoping Andy Cohen has some very deep pockets, because the Real Housewives of Atlanta are hoping to milk their huge popularity for all it's worth! After an explosive reunion, there has been much speculation as to whether Queen B (as in "bloop!") NeNe Leakes will grace the network with her presence. Rumors have also been swirling as to the fates of Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore after their crazy brawl.
Talk about going from a love tank that's running on empty to one that may actually be overflowing! It seems that after a tumultuous relationship with winner Brooks Ayers, Vicki Gunvalson is finally playing the field!
Don't get too excited. No need to start thinking now that Vicki is making better decisions in the relationship department. The Real Housewives of Orange County OG still has Brooks in her dating rotation, but thankfully she's added others to the roster. In fact, sources are claiming that the Bravolebrity is dating both Brooks and attorney John Pulanski on whom we reported on back in April.
