If you’re like me, than the news that Bethenny is returning to Real Housewives Of New York sent you scrambling to watch old episodes. You know, so you could remember a time when you actually liked Bethenny before she started sabotaging her marriage and faking story lines on her spinoff Bethenny Never After!
After 3 seasons away from RHONY, in which Bethenny divorced, underwent an acrimonious custody battle, TMI’d her every waking moment in tabloids, and attempted to spin herself into a talkshow mogul’s whose only guests were Bravolebrities before being canceled. Now Bethenny, undergoing withdrawal from lack of attention, decided to come back to RHONY to “save the show.”
I don’t know if if will work in the long run but Bethenny promises the show feels fresh and new, and at least for a few episodes we’ll all tune in to see what she’s up to. Oh, but it already looks like Bethenny is having issues – she’s pretty been absent from filming because ex-husband Jason Hoppy is blocking Bryn from appearing (as per their custody agreement). We’ll see how much of a storyline Bethenny actually gives us besides spilling about why she divorced in an effort to renovate her image and swilling products from the endless well of Skinnygirl.
Remember how last season on Vanderpump Rules everyone busted Kristen Doute‘s thongbutt for cheating on Tom 1? Well this season she’s accusing him of cheating on new girlfriend Ariana Madix. I dunno kids – it seems kinda transparent to me, like Kristen just wants Tom 1 all to herself and back in her thong-th-thong-thong-thong! (In case you’re wondering why I keep bringing up thongs, it’s cause Bravo gave us a lovely shot of Kristen’s thong butt).
This season everyone on VPR has undergone metamorphosis after the insane betrayals and they’ve grown. Except for Kristen. She’s stayed the same. Well, maybe she’s grown more crazy – we’ll wait on assessing that.
Kristen is supposedly madly in love with 22-year-old Baby Einstein (Slowstein? He ain’t sharp) DJ James Kennedy, who is trying awfully hard to get some attention on this here TeeVee thingy. First he tried to be besties with Tom 1, but when that didn’t get his pale, pastiness on camera, he decided screwing the desperate and maligned Kristen would have to suffice. Other than famewhoring, James enjoys BeamerSelfies. We’ll get to that later. So anyway, everyone has learned. Everyone has grown.
Y’all, is it just me, or is Love & Hip Hop Hollywood getting more and more comical? And scripted? Don’t get me wrong–it kind of makes me enjoy it more! Last night begins as Yung Berg is trying to seduce Teairra Mari with the new music, and he’s outfitted the studio with champagne and strawberries. While Teairra loves the song, she isn’t feeling his romantic intentions. She’s fine with a professional relationship, but she can do without his advances. Berg tells Teairra that Hazel is fighting mad that they are working together, and Teairra goes off on her former friend. Why does Hazel care if Berg produces a song for her? It’s not like they are getting it on behind the scenes. And just like that Berg is brought back to reality.
Of course, at the gym, Hazel is recapping her recent fight with Berg with Masika. In turn, Masika explains her friendship with Berg because she wants to keep things one hundred. Hazel is surprised to hear this…while she knew Masika and Berg were acquaintances, but now Masika is acting like they’re besties. Masika promises she cooled her friendship with Berg when she saw how he continued to treat Hazel, and she reminds Hazel that he’s always been a player and a flirt. Hazel disagrees. In her wacky world, he only had eyes for her!
TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo when the scandal broke that Mama June got back together with Mark McDaniel, the man who molested her daughter Anna Cardwell. The network had nearly completed filming for the fourth season when they decided to pull the plug and not air the footage – and they blame Mama June entirely! As a result Mama June will lose most of her salary for the unaired season – but her three daughters will be paid-in-full!
TLC has made the decision to put paycheck money in trust for Pumpkin, Chubs, and Alana Thompson, while seriously reducing June’s earnings under the stipulation that she violated the networks “morality” clause when she entered into a relationship with a child molester. The network is confident they have the legal grounds to do this, says TMZ.
Sugar Bear and Uncle Poodle, Alana’s uncle, will also receive their full salaries because they are not responsible for any behaviors that would have put the show at risk of cancellation.
Jacqueline Laurita wasn’t able to attend the season six Real Housewives of New Jerseyreunion, so she took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the topics as it aired. Ugh. Raise your hand if you’re shocked. “Not on the reunion but I’ll probably tweet during it,” she tweeted before the show. Probably? HAHAHA!
