Whenever the Real Housewives of Orange County travel it’s an elephantine-sized disaster. And this time they came into contact with actual elephants. I’m pretty sure subjecting an elephant to Vicki Gunvalson‘s screaming constitutes animal abuse. Last night they all traveled to Bali for some spiritual awakening, reincarnated relationships, and bonding – at least that was on the trip prospectus.
Bali is being terrorized by California ladies with 25 pieces of designer baggage and enough anxiety drugs (they’re holistic!!) to tranquilize an elephant. The real purpose of this trip is for us to get different scenery while they haggle and rehash over the same dang arguments. Vicki has a conniption fit because she thinks all the calming auras in Indonesia will interfere with the WiFi signal so she won’t be able to WORK! WORK! WORK! More time to FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! (or in Vicki’s case get motion sickness and puke in Tamra Judge‘s lap in the back of a van).
After 30 hours on a plane everyone, including that silent one Danielle Gregorio, arrives. She is now called “Dumb” as in 1/2 of the Vicki-dubbed Dumb & Dumber. She was wearing a molting Muppet costume on the plane. I seriously wonder what happened with this one. Why is she the RHOC ghost? I feel like a Sc0oby Doo montage starring Shannon Beador‘s mystery door needs to breakout!
In case you missed it… Amber Marchese told Melissa Gorga that she heard Nicole Napolitano broke up someone’s marriage, and Melissa took the gossip back to Nicole. Then at the first responders party, which raised awareness for really slutty costumes instead of money, Nicole “went right for the physical” with Amber. While Amber pretended she didn’t hear anyone ask what SHE did to set off Nicole, Jim Marchese made a huge show out of depositing his wife’s pulled out hair on Bobby Ciasulli‘s kitchen counter. Gross.
Now Melissa is complaining about Amber putting her in a bad position. HAHA. Melissa knew exactly what she was doing – pulling a Tamra Barney to keep herself relevant – when she told Nicole what Amber said. For Melissa to clutch her pearls over the fight that ensued is comical.
VH1 has totally messed with my mind. A new episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta happened last Thursday? I am a creature of habit…Remember that, Mona Scott Young. At least the network aired it again last night so I was able to catch up with all of the crazy drama. Karlie Redd is confronting Yung Joc and his Jill of all Trades at the fashion event she’s attending with Erica Dixon. Joc doesn’t even pretend to hide the fact he’s stepping out on her (unless you count the fact that he originally told her he was going out of town), and Karlie is cussing him up one side and down the other regarding his taste in Telly-Tubbies. Can’t she come up with something more original?
Waka Flocka Flame’s mother Deb is meeting with Mimi Faust, and she’s hoping the two can be each other’s support through their current hard times. Deb has recently lost her son, and Mimi’s father has just passed away. They share their respective stories of missed communications with their loved ones. Mimi reveals to Deb that Stevie J. has been so hateful to her, and she admits that her issues with Stevie are spilling over into all aspects of her life. Mimi sobs as she realizes that her childhood turmoil mixed with Stevie’s attitude is affecting her more than she ever knew. She didn’t meet her father until she was sixteen, and even though she hates Stevie, she wants Eva to have a good relationship with her father.
Kim Kardashian’s stylist loves to make a statement. The jury is still out on what that statement IS exactly.
Kim stepped out in yet another attention grabbing ensemble this week, stopping by Jimmy Kimmel for an interview tonight. Kim once again showed that she doesn’t care what body type an outfit is designed for, she’s going to wear it!
Mrs. West crammed herself into an outfit clearly made for a tall lanky supermodel type with a much smaller chest, slimmer hips and longer legs. Kim was spilling out of the white bustier and that long teal ..um robe? dress that wouldn’t close? boxer’s robe? lingerie? silk blouse? In any case, whatever it is, it clung to her rear end and hips in a most unflattering way. And I can’t tell what color those pants are supposed to be. In some photo sets they looked beige and in others they appeared as a light pink. They made her legs look even shorter than they are.
So, is Kim doing it on purpose for the attention it brings when she wears ill-fitting and/or plain old bad fashion? Or is she just completely unaware how to dress for her body type? A little of both? It’s interesting because she looked better when she arrived at the studio – in just a pair of ripped jeans and a t-shirt.
Did you watch Kim’s interview tonight? What was she promoting this time?
Update: Kim wrote on Instagram, “Tonight’s look- Ulyana Sergeenko.”
Heather Dubrow thinks she’s perfect. Imagine her surprise when others don’t agree with her self-assessment. In this case one of her main detractors is friend Vicki Gunvalson and Heather is shocked and appalled that Vicki is questioning her behavior this season.
“I love Vicki and we have always had a very good relationship. However, I’m pretty tired of the nasty interview bites thrown in my direction,” Heather complains.
One of the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s main complaints is that Vicki has taken new friend Shannon Beador‘s side after Heather failed to display any sympathy for Shannon’s situation. Furthermore, even if Heather has behaved appallingly, Vicki is her friend first right. And, lest we forget: Heather got yelled at by Shannon! Therefore all of the misdeeds this season are not at all her fault. I mean she’s right – most of them are Tamra Judge‘s fault!
I don’t think it’s a secret that Don’t Be Tardy star, Kim Zolciak, has an affinity for the finer things in life. From her wigs to her jewelry to her brand new home, Kim likes nice things. And who can blame her? But what happens when her husband, Kroy Biermann, tries to tell her enough is enough when it comes to very pricey Louis Vuitton luggage? Well, not much.
“OK so let me just say I love Louis Vuitton and I always have, from purses to shoes to luggage and more… What can I say? We have plenty of luggage, Kroy is correct in saying that, BUT we all have our own suitcases/trunks, so it wasn’t until I was packing for spring break that I realized the twins needed their own suitcase too. Shun to the rescue! She brought over exactly what I wanted (and some additional pieces she knew I would love too). I kept EVERYTHING! Work hard, play hard. I do like to treat myself, and Kroy agrees and he LOVES to spoil me too…plus my birthday was right around the corner.”
What a birthday gift! And speaking of the finer things in life, what is the deal with Kim and lottery scratch-off tickets?
