Oh Robertsons, it's been far too long! Like most of y'all, I have been waiting for last night's season premiere of Duck Dynasty, and (no shocker) Willie, Jase, Si, Phil, and their families did not disappoint. I couldn't love this show more if I tried. Sure, there are some scripted elements, but the family love, the faith, and the humor are anything but, and it's just as humbling as it is entertaining to watch. I'm so thrilled to get to recap the new season.
The guys are hanging out in the warehouse, and I feel like it's a bunch of Santa's elves hanging out…if Santa's elves wore camo and had a subscription to Field and Stream. It's no coincidence that Jase likens the boys' anticipation on Duck Season Eve to be that of children waiting for Old St. Nick to make an appearance. Si thinks he'll be sleighing slaying (sorry, horrible word play!) ducks with not only his rifle, but with his mesmerizing stare. No doubt we have some readers who wouldn't mind being hypnotized by Si's googly eyes, but I won't call out any of y'all Soncee! Si must be very careful with how he directs said stare…he doesn't want to knock himself out with its power when he looks in the mirror!
Jase is shocked to hear that Willie will be camping with the boys on Duck Season Eve. Willie reminds him that it is a family tradition. He's still a redneck, right? RIGHT? Si and Jase then start in on a hilarious diatribe of Willie's idea of roughing it…like opening a garage door manually, having the wrong comfort setting on his sleep number bed, watching a DVD instead of Blu-Ray (you KILL me, Si!), or having to unload the dishwasher because his wife is out of town. Jase can't believe that Willie is ready to brave the wilderness…after all, he frequents coffee shops. God, I LOVE this family! The boys convince Willie to give them the day off so they can prepare for their camping adventure.
"Sean Lowe and one of his final two sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes a televised reality dating competition, then comes marriage, then comes…" Yeah, this isn't quite working out as I'd planned. I guess the nursery rhyme didn't take modern day fame-whore-dom romance into consideration when singing about baby carriages. Who makes out in a tree anyway?
Things are heating up as the Bachelor season draws to a close. Will Sean find true love? Will he propose? If so, will he be able to keep it in his pants until saying "I do"?
ABC is constantly out-doing itself by touting the "most dramatic" or the "most romantic" or the "most shocking" rose ceremonies/hometown dates/proposals in Bachelor franchise history. I would have appreciated the network's stance even more had it just been honest for once. If Chris Harrison told me it was going to be the "most vanilla" season in the franchise's history, I would have still tuned in every Monday. ABC needs to give its viewers more credit. We're creatures of habit. No matter how much we never again want to see anyone making out in a hot tub or handing out a rose, we'll still be there. Count on it.
Jax vented his frustrations on twitter, letting fans know the truth. Which I would take very lightly considering he also admitted to his therapist that he lies all the time to make people like him. I mean, he even lied TO his therapist! HA!
Just like Joe adamantly defended Melissa against stripper-gate, he is coming to her defense in the rumors that she had an affair.
“I don’t even know this guy,” Joeinsists to Life & Style. “People tried to bring this up two years ago; they tried to put this bulls–t out there. All I have to say is, ‘Ha, ha, ha.’”
“There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations…but I love my wife,” Joe shares. "The poor girl keeps getting all this abuse for no reason. They find a good mom with a good image, and it's like, ‘How can we take her down?’”
Last month, an inside source admitted that Jenelle has become "too much of a liability" for MTV. What to do? What to do?
Well, at MTV's request, Jenelle has voluntarily checked herself into a rehab facility. I hope it's better than the ineffectual rehabAmber Portwood visited on Teen Mom. Several sources have confirmed Jenelle's whereabouts… but why is she there? The answer depends on whom you ask.
After years and years and years of being on the receiving end of legal issues She By SheBroke is now on the firing side!
The formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star is seeking a protective order against popular Atlanta blogger TamaraTattles because she claims the blogger violated her privacy and is stalking her after she took photos of Chateau Sheree without permission.
Earlier this month Tamara paid a visit to the terminally under-construction Chateau Sheree. Tamara claims a construction worker on the property invited her in and allowed her to tour the premises. The original blog, including the photos Tamara took, is here. Tamara was complimentary to the plans Sheree had in place for the house, which has undergone shady contractors and multiple deed owners as Sheree struggled to finance its completion.
Well Sheree did not take kindly to Tamara's 'invasion of privacy' and Courthouse News reports she filed a "Petition for Stalking Temporary Protective Order" against Tamara in Fulton County Superior Court. Sheree alleges that Tamara, "harasses and stalks her, showing up at the construction site of her home, snapping photos and blogging about it all."
