It’s hard to imagine that Maddie Ziegler is only 12-years-old. The Dance Moms star has already experienced more than most of us do in a lifetime thanks to the popularity of her reality show and a decade-long dedication to dance. Despite all the upsides of fame (dancing with Sia at the Grammy Awards!), Maddie admits it’s also impacted her life in unfortunate ways – and sometimes she just wants to be a normal tween.
Anyone who has ever watched Dance Moms can attest that Maddie seems very mature for her age. In fact, for this in-depth interview with the Telegraph UK, Maddie is by herself with the interviewer as Melissa “pops in and out of the office” in between caring for MacKenzie who was sick back at their temporary apartment. (Maddie was also accompanied by a security guard who waited in the hall). Maddie is TWELVE!
We can’t talk about part three of the reunion and not talk about NeNe Leakes. About the breakdown, Claudia shared, “When NeNe walked off, initially I wasn’t sure what was going on to be honest. I did notice she seemed to be trembling, so I knew she was definitely feeling something very real to her. I just didn’t know what had set her off at that point. So at first I was a little taken back. I had never seen her cry, but we are all human and everyone has their breaking point.”
Kenya Moore‘s life is filled with more holes than Swiss cheese. At this point I don’t know what to believe, except delusions twirls on and on and on…
Kenya, has been boasting of falling in love with James, a man she met on Millionaire Matchmaker, today says that she found out he was married – a week after the show aired! All very interesting considering that in the time since MM aired until just last week, Kenya has consistently claimed to be in a relationship with James, even describing how she was keeping it out of the media!
And just last week, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star even went so far as to post a photo of herself wearing an engagement ring, being coy and writing “Anything can happen in Vegas” before deleting the photo.
Melissa Gorga is doing some regular Real Housewives maintenance – updating the old boob job!
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star recently got glam to go under the knife and replace her aging implants after 13 years. Melissa posted a photo on instagram asking fans to wish her luck for the procedure, which she claims was doctor mandated.
Brandi said she was “not shocked” by Kim‘s arrest. “But, at the same time, I’ve never seen her drink or do a drug,” she added. “If she wants to get help… it’s on her… I can’t say to somebody, ‘You need to get help.’ Because they’re going to go, ‘F–k you. You have a problem. I do not have a problem.’ I was her friend, and I witnessed odd behavior, but I never saw her do anything.”
Southern Charm, I can’t thank you enough for being the beacon of light in my dreaded Mondays, and last night’s episode was no different…although Shepard “Shep” Rose could’ve have laid off Craig Conover just a tad. The cast is packing for their Jekyll Island adventure, and Landon Clements’ fingers are crossed for a refined weekend of manicured lawns and low-key dinners. Craig calls Whitney Sudler-Smith to bum a ride, but alas, Whitney is an hour into the trek or else he’d turn around to retrieve him. Of course, Whitney spins this lie as he packs his Louis Vuitton weekender just a quarter mile from Craig’s apartment, but whatevs. Cameran Eubanks and Shep are tasked with carpooling the wayward law student, and they have agreed they need continue the tough love when it comes to his downward spiral. Shep is all in, and Captain Craig (seriously dude, that hat?) gets defensive about bar study and rent payments. Meanwhile, in the car with Jennifer Snowden, Kathryn Dennis hopes this trip will solidify her spot in the clique on her own merits, and not just as Thomas Ravenel’s plus one.
Landon and her sister Powell are the first to check in, followed by Whitney. Over drinks, Landon apologizes in advance to the bartender for her friends who have yet to materialize. Shep and Craig can’t handle the geriatric vibe they’re getting from the island. What is this place? Heaven’s waiting room? The two are forced to mainline Scotch to tolerate this retirement community. Cameran is beyond embarrassed by their childish antics. This is why she’s child free at the moment. Jennifer and Kathryn arrive as the others take off on a bike ride. Their swift departure and refusal to wait for the girls is an omen for Kathryn. She’s all Stephanie Tanner about the situation. Rude. They should be thankful they avoided the testosterone fueled beach cruiser nightmare that is Craig and Shep arguing over how to best reach the ocean. Shep takes every opportunity to insult Craig about his current life situation, calling him so broke he can’t even pay attention. I am definitely stealing that line. The boys spar over their mapquest skills when they’re informed they are about as far from the beach as is humanly possible.
Last night’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta wasn’t really what I was expecting. Sympathizing with Stevie and mild S&M? Game changer for sure! Stevie J. has survived his first ten days in rehab, and he’s feeling much better about his recovery. However, he’s not permitted to have visitors so Joseline Hernandez has arrived to rehash her sit down with Mimi Faust. There goes Stevie’s calm vibe. He wants her to work on her anger management, and he urges her to give up smoking now that he’s giving up drinking. Stevie shares that he can’t be around liquor for at least a year once he’s out of the program, and he’d prefer not to be subjected to any tempting substances. Hold up! It’s not Joseline’s problem that Stevie has a drinking problem…she’s not giving up smoking just to appease him. Stevie requests that she talk to his doctor about his post-rehab needs, but she isn’t interested in talking to some bunk-ass therapist.
I didn’t realized that Kalenna and Tony Vick would be joining us again this season, but they’re back and she’s about to give birth. They complain that the pregnancy came about at the most inopportune time. They are suffering from financial problems and had to close their studio mid-production of her latest album. Tony relays that he has the chance to invest in some clubs with a a real estate developer. Kalenna thinks his scheme is too risky, plus the last time he worked with this friend, there were rumors all over town that Tony was cheating on her. Speaking of bad business deals, Karlie Redd is meeting up with Rasheeda to discuss the messiness at her boutique opening. Karlie wants to know why Rasheeda brought Erica Dixon to the opening of her event after Karlie ditched her plan with Erica to open a store. Rasheeda accuses Jessica Dime Piece for stirring the pot unnecessarily, and the one get into a screaming match in the restaurant in an attempt to one-up one another. AARP Karlie speeds off, and not a single patron in that crowded restaurant acted like anything was weird about two grown woman shrieking insults at one another during the lunch rush. Weird for “reality,” I know…
