I think my world has been turned slightly upside down. Dance Moms'Abby Lee Millermay not be as bad as I think she is every Tuesday night. She spoke with a local newscaster in Michigan, and the pair had a frank sit-down about the background behind the show. Abby even chastises him for only having watched one episode of her show.
It's a long chat, but Abby actually makes some valid points. She also dishes on how the show came to light, and it's not what I expected. It appears that Abby has been a victim of reality television as well. Is it scripted? Duh. Does drama create ratings? Bravo 101. Would Abby like the show to focus more on the kids and their dancing than manufactured craziness? I honestly believe she does. If you could ever knock me over with a feather, now would be the time!
I honestly don't know what to think about Love & Hip Hop. First I loved it, then I was "eh," and now I keep switching up which cast members I like and which ones annoy the poo out of me. Can you guess who was getting on my nerves during the recent hip hop shenanigans?
Last night's episode begins with Olivia Longott meetingErica Menaso Erica can apologize (is that what she's attempting?) for her behavior at Yandy's party the following evening. She hadn't planned on being so confrontational. Of course, then Erica starts going off on Liv for not doing a favor for Rich Dollaz and making the record with her. Erica is sick of watching Rich do everything for Olivia when she gives him nothing in return…nothing but a paycheck! Does Erica understand what it means to be a manager? She then starts warning Liv that her friendship with Rich is faltering, but Olivia assures Erica that they've been best friends for years, and that isn't going to change. Huffy that she can't change Olivia's mind about the song by just trying to talk over her, Erica storms away. So much for that apology, right?
Jen Bayer heads into the studio to visit with her friend Raqi Thunda. Raqi is Muslim, and she would like to get a woman's perspective on Consequence's religion. Jen has considered converting, but she wants their son to be able to experience Christmas and Easter. Raqi is flabbergasted that the pair didn't discuss their religious differences before having a child together, and Jen is in tears over the thought that she'll never bake Christmas cookies with Caden.
It's nice to know Paul Nassif isn't a man to hold a grudge – even against his ex-wife Adrienne Maloof which is really saying something considering the allegations she made during their divorce process.
"As long as she's happy, that's all I care about," he told TMZ. As for whether or not he's still a Rod Stewart fan, Paul said "of course!"
Moving on, Brandi Glanville (and her thigh-high slit) appeared on Good Day LA to promote her new book Drinking & Tweeting – and her dress line Brand B. And by the looks of things only people who look like Brandi herself could pull them off!
Asa is headlining the Persh-a-Pelooza (Bravo's spelling) because she fancies herself the Persian Pop Priestess. Reza gives Asa a citrine stone for good luck, and Asa likes its energy. Lovely. She'll be making citrine milkshakes next season. #staytuned
Reza ruins Asa's warm and fuzzy rock feelings by insisting she have dinner with GG. Asa says she's far too busy playing pop star and spreading her love energy to worry about GG, adding, "GG's malicious. She doesn't value anything. There's nothing human about her. I don't want people like that in my life." Reza is like, Asa, I gave you a rock! Asa is like, You play dirty. Fine. One second of anything slightly wack, I'm out. Deuces!
As if West Virginia didn't have enough of an issue with the kids from Buckwild, now TLC is bringing us Gypsy Sisters from the hills of Martinsburg. We first met Mellie on My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding as the stripper with a heart of gold penchant for violence. Now she's joined by her older sister Nettie, cousin Kayla, and friend Laura. Admittedly, I am fascinated with the gypsy culture.
The show follows the four women and their families, as they bling, tat, clean, tan, and engage in vicious fist fights. Ah, yes, The Learning Channel at it's finest. I am glad to see that it's keeping up with all of the other high brow reality networks. That said, I will totally be watching this madness. It's like the Bad Girls Club, but with gypsies! And just wait until you hear what Nettie's grandchildren are named. You just can't make this up, people…you. just. can't. The show premieres on TLC at 9PM ET on Sunday February 10th.

This is a rumor no more! Kris Jenner has landed a talk show!
There has been buzz for a long time that the Kardashian matriarch was in talks for her own show, but now it has become a reality! Fox stations in a few markets are going to test out the show this summer. This is similar to the "summer tryout" that was given to BethennyFrankel.
It will be a daily one-hour talk show that will feature celebrity guests along with basic lifestyle chatter, as well.
EVP of Twentieth TV, Stephen Brown, shared “The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines. At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner – a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host.”
While Amber is serving a five year sentence in the slammer, Gary has been raising the pair's four-year-old daughter Leah in a 1,500 square foot house in Indiana. Unfortunately for Gary, he's been forgetting one tiny detail…rent! If he's short on cash, perhaps he should start wearing some tacky clothing line again, so the company will pay him to stop wearing it. Hey, it's worked before!
Ready or not – here it comes. Kim Zolciak's spinoff Don't Be Tardy is alive and well and coming to Bravo this spring. To celebrate the momentous occasion Kim, informed the masses of Wigettes on twitter that filming had officially wrapped. And to celebrate she de-wigged again.
