On last night’s Little Women: NY we begin with the entire group, sans Jordanna James, meeting to hear Jazmin Lang’strip idea: Puerto Rico! Jazmin’s mother is Puerto Rican and she wants to take everyone to her “home” so they can relax and bond again. Jordanna is invited even though she and Jason Perez are at odds. The group is assembled the next day with rolling bags as big as they are, but they’re troopers and hustle their way into cabs and to the airport. Lila Callsays traveling abroad can be tough for a little person, but she just plans to bat her eyelashes to get a little help.
The group arrives safe & sounds at their hotel in PR. Jazmin climbs up on her suitcase to reach the check-in desk and, again, props to all of them for getting themselves into their rooms with all the schlepping and struggling of travel! Dawn Lang is still burning up about Misty Irwin and Kristin Zettlemoyerdissing her “big event” last weekend (i.e.: her brokedown charity auction), so she plans to confront them at dinner. In another room, Jordanna is complaining to Kristin about Jason’s ridiculous behavior at Dawn’s event in throwing Jordanna publicly under the bus. For her part, Kristin is not feeling Dawn lately and tells Jordanna that she’s ready to snap if Dawn rubs her the wrong way on this trip. So, bring on the dinner confrontation!
Reza opened up about calling off the wedding on the Shahs of Sunset after show. “It was weird. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but at the same time it was the right decision for me. I come from a broken home and I have a lot of reservations about getting married,” he admitted. “When I get married, I want to make sure there are no issues on the table and it’s for keeps.”
Adam had “no idea” Reza was going to call off their wedding in Thailand. “He literally thought we were getting married… like, we have plane tickets, we booked a hotel, we’re going overseas, we got a marriage license, we’re getting married,” said Reza. “It was not an option he thought was on the table. He was blind sided.” Why does Adam stay with Reza? (crickets) Anyone??
As lamp fixtures do, Kristen Taekman sometimes decorates the room a bit, but doesn’t add much to the conversation. Commenting in her Bravo blog on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York, Kristen remarks on everything from Bethenny Frankel’s therapy to Luann de Lesseps’ daughter’s artwork. Oh! And she does have some words for the sparse scenes she was physically present in as well.
“I would like to start out by saying how amazing Ramona [Singer’s] friends are,” begins Kristen, “I know that Bethenny was saying that she didn’t have much in common with any of these women. At first glance neither did I, but in the end we had Ramona in common and sometimes just having a mutual friend in common is enough.” Kristen goes on to defend the entire Upper East Side (those poor unfortunate souls!) claiming, “they are all very lovely, giving, beautiful, supportive women. Many of them are very successful in their own right. During the event, many of them stood up and spoke about their friendships with Ramona.” Kristen is not a fan of Sonja Morgan’s New Age friend, however: “Sonja and the Swami Priestess!? UGH! That Yogi friend of hers gets on my nerves!”
Aaaaahhh… the Teen Mom chronicles 1 through 3, and even OG! Starting with Teen Mom 3 –Mackenzie McKee wants a boob job and thinks you lovely people should help her buy some!
After Mackenzie got temporarily dumped by her hubby Josh McKee (the two are now back together and working out constantly) the former MTV star started pursuing her divorce makeover! Of course, now she’s pursuing the my hot husband needs me to have a nice rack makeover, except she wants us to pay for it! My Magic Hate Ball says: #NotLikely
G’day readers! It looks like we’re all still gluttons for punishment when it comes to Abby Lee Miller and the drama of Dance Moms, but this time we’re cringing while the girls explore an entirely different hemisphere. Koala bears make even the nastiest of people much easier to tolerate, right? Plus, those accents! Abby arrives at the airport, and of course, things are stressful right from the start. Abby has misplaced her passport (and license and credit cards) and there are tears, y’all! The ALDC has already arrived in Australia to perform at the Astra Awards which Jill touts as Down Under’s Emmys. Note to Jill…save the duck face for the tweens!
Melissa, who has clearly opted for the international data plan, calls Abby to find out why she’s missing in action. When Abby laments that she’s lost her passport, Melissa starts listing places where Abby could have left it. Geez, Melissa! If she knew where she left it, it wouldn’t be lost. Glad to see some things don’t change with the time zones! Abby won’t be arriving until the day of the event, and she suggests that only Maddie perform since she won’t be there to micromanage. Hold up! Jill and Holly interject that all of the girls were invited to participate, to which Abby retorts, “Show me your invitation.” When Jill counters that Maddie didn’t receive a personal invitation, Abby snarks that she can pull up the e-mail that specifically requests Maddie’s presence. Abby warns Holly that she won’t put up with any of her crap. After all, Holly, Nia. Jessalyn, and JoJo weren’t included in Abby’s plans…they are just tagging along for the trip.
As long as we’ve known Bethenny Frankel, she’s had long locks. But the Real Housewives of New York star is ready to change things up! Bethenny took to Twitter this afternoon to show off her fresh new look! Bethenny chopped her hair, colored it and it looks like she even gave it a little kick of red/auburn this time around. She captioned the pic, “Go Shawty! #TheBisBack.”

My love of Jeff Lewisand Flipping Out rivals only my love of the paint color “greige” (the majority of my household’s rooms are literally covered in this palette due to Jeff’s unnatural influence over me). But, alas! Apart from a short-lived spinoff show and an ill-fated appearance with Brandi Glanville on What What Happens Live, Jeff Lewis has been…well, kind of MIA. But, fans of OCD decorating everywhere: rejoice! A long awaited new season of Flipping Out is heading our way July 1st on Bravo!
In a sneak peak clip, we see that the main cast of characters is back, including Jeff’s long suffering assistant Jenni Pulos, Jeff’s boyfriend (and everyone else’s nemesis) Gage Edward, and live in housekeeper Zoila Chavez. Jeff says he’s been in hibernation for awhile, but he’s “coming out…again!” For him, that means not only flipping properties and tearing his contractors – and employees – new a-holes every once in a while, but also thinking about having a baby with Gage. “Am I too old to have a baby?” Jeff asks at an appointment on the preview clip.
Making herself comfortable in the den of shrews on this season’s Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda Medley weighs in on All Things Confrontation in her Bravo blog this week. Claiming to feel more part of the group lately, Dorinda cites the ladies’ Atlantic City trip as the catalyst for girl bonding. “I’m starting to feel ‘familiar’ around them, if that makes any sense,” says Dorinda. Yes. Familiarity usually ensues after seeing your castmate’s snatch on the dance floor, then taking care of her drunkety-drunken carcass afterward. She adds, “The sheen of being a ‘NY Housewife’ isn’t entirely there anymore, because I’m one of them, you know? During and after the Atlantic City trip, I started to feel more comfortable, more at ease, and more like ‘one of the girls.’ Considering how they carry on sometimes, I’m not quite sure if that is a positive or a negative just yet. Maybe a little of both?”
Moving on to Ramona Singer’s birthday bash, Dorinda points out that “Ramona is great about having the never-ending birthday that never ends (redundancy intended),” adding, “In reality, her birthday is November 18, but the celebrations start shortly after Halloween and continue throughout the month of November, Thanksgiving be damned. It’s like Ramona Heritage Month. Our next stop on the birthday train was at Fishtail with ALL of her friends. And I mean ALL of them.” As one of the Upper East Side elite, Dorinda gives us her take on Ramona’s 30 closest friends: “These girls run the Upper East Side with an iron fist. They basically buy out every season at Bergdorf’s before it makes it to the floor. They’re a fun crowd—colorful characters—and Bethenny was right: It’s like the Cantina’s greatest hits from Star Wars. Of course, they’re all jockeying to be Princess Leia, though c’mon, Ramona’s the birthday girl. We know she’s the princess in our midst. After all, it is November…”
