I’ve already done double duty tonight, channeling my inner Mr. Belvedere and presenting myself with some running socks (sadly, I own no shoes with red soles) and a viewing drink so that my kaftan-clad (well, a bathrobe, but it’s fancy) self would be socially primed to watch the Southern Charmreunion the way it should be watched…channeling Patricia Altschul. I’m still upset with Andy Cohen for not stepping up the reunion game and bringing the final round to Charleston and out of the WWHL clubhouse. Next year, right?
The cast is prepping for the big night in New York City, and everyone is already anticipating a great deal of drama. Andy compliments Shepard “Sheppie” Rose on his mature and stylish attire and addresses Thomas Ravenel as “Senator,” although T-Rav claims to have no more future political aspirations. The host notes he stuck in the hot seat (and potentially in the line of physical fire) between Thomas and Kathryn Dennis before high-fiving Craig Conover. Enough with the pleasantries, Andy. This hour is going to fly by as it is!
Speaking of, Scrappy is hosting his mom, her ex-husband Ernest who she sent to the clink a few years back who has returned from jail even more in love, his mother Bessie who isn’t Dee’s biggest fan due to the incarceration, and the prince’s sister Jasmine who can’t fathom why her mom wants to reconcile with Ernest. Oh, and Bambi and Jasmine’s boyfriend Rico are in attendance as well, but they aren’t likely going to bring much drama to this table. Dee blesses the meal, and Scrappy prays for a conflict-free evening. Dee addresses the elephants in the room, and Bessie cries that it was difficult to learn how to forgive Dee for sending her son to jail. Bessie contends there are better ways to punish your drug-dealing, verbally abusive, car-stealing husband than to call the cops on him. Just make him fend for himself on laundry for a week! Jasmine interrupts that Ernest is an opportunist for wanting to get back together with Dee after she put him away for seven years. Dee threatens to whoop Jasmine’s butt up and down Atlanta, but Scrappy does his best to mediate. Can’t everyone behave like adults? Ernest believes they have a long way to go before they’ll be a big, happy family. Ernest…mastering the understatement since 1984.
Like y’all, I can’t understand why Bravo short-changes us on Southern Charm. Not an actual full season’s worth of episodes? The reunion at the WWHL clubhouse? This is a legitimate reality series, not the ugly, less popular sister of Below Deck (which I also love…don’t get me started on how slighted that crew is!)…why not treat it like one?
This is my favorite show because it’s the most real of the reality I see on a daily basis…that, and Patricia Altschul is my much better coiffed spirit animal. That said, can you believe the reunion is tonight? That final episode left us with a screeching Kathryn Dennis sprinting the deck of the Yorktown and the promise of a more balanced Craig Conover. In terms of closure, it wasn’t what we’d hoped! So, what do we know about the gang heading into tonight’s reunion?
Season four of Shahs of Sunset is rapidly coming to an end. And I’m not mad about it. The season finale airs tonight at 9/8c and the reunion airs Monday, June 8 at 8/7c. The reunion airs an hour earlier than normal to make room for the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Despite the fact that not much happened this season (hence why I am ready for it to end), Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi have promised a “very intense” reunion. “We have a lot of drama,” shared GG. “The reunion was on another level this year, another extreme. And there was a lot of yelling, a lot of cursing, people walking off the stage.”
It’s been a busy twenty four hours for the Kardashian-Jenner crew. First Kim Kardashian announced her second pregnancy and then Bruce came along and stole her thunder when Vanity Fair released the first photos of him as Caitlyn Jenner, complete with new Twitter handle and all. Caitlyn isn’t the only one gracing a magazine cover in July. Kim landed a spread in Glamour magazine, where she talked about fertility struggles, not being a role model, hateful internet comments and so much more.
Check out the excerpts from the Kim Kardashian Glamour interview below.
The wait is almost over. Holly Madison‘s book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, hits stores June 23rd. I fully admit that I have already pre-ordered the Kindle version. Holly was (still is) my favorite from The Girls Next Door.
“I’m excited to finally share my story and what I have learned from my personal experiences both inside and outside of the Playboy Mansion,” Holly said when she announced Down The Rabbit Hole in March. “I think my stories will surprise people and I’m looking forward to lifting the veil of mystique and clearing up the misconceptions so often associated with my life.”
Is Brandi Glanville moving on from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills with an acting job? With rumors that she won’t return next season, Brandi announced on twitter that she just got some “crazy news.” Which isn’t really news, considering everything that happens to Brandi is crazy (and announced on twitter).
“Just got she crazy news! if it happens I am seriously going to need like 3 acting coaches!!” Brandi shared over the weekend.
