Last night was the premiere of Private Lives of Nashville Wives and so far I'm loving it! The ladies and the friendships seem genuine and fun, the husbands are adorable, and the interactions seem authentic. The houses are fabulous but not ridiculous and the relationships seem authentic.
It's CMA Festival week in Nashville which means the town is bumping with parties, events, music festivals. and entertainment.
Jenny Terrell is my favorite wife so far. She is married to JT, who runs a party-supply company that everyone in Nashville uses, and she herself is a national sales director for Living Social. They have a son named Hank and JT is basically a stay-at-home dad as his business runs itself. "I should write a book," he jokes about balancing business, family, and love. "You should," Jenny agrees and the wheels start spinning. Their house looks like a tree house, BTW.
They take Hank to the park and Jenny is wearing like a schoolgirl outfit with white tennis shoes and socks. Oooohhh… girl. No. I also don't think she owns a brush but maybe it's because she's too busy having fun to care. Isn't there a Living Social deal for hairbrushes or anti-frizz treatments or something?
Well, someone certainly doesn't care about being friends with any of her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars. It's the NeNe Leakes Show, and that's all there is to it! After the craziness of Sunday night's episode, the Neenster has choice words for new biffles Marlo Hampton (she's not even a real cast member, NeNe reminds us) and the crazy that is Kenya Moore. Poor Cynthia wanted some fun at the Bailey Bowl, but with this group, that is quite the pipe dream!
It comes as no surprise that you won't need any sunglasses given the amount of shade NeNe throws in her Bravo blog this week! Aptly titled Manlow and Krayonce,she begins, "Here we go again! If you read my blogs, then you know I hate long, drawn out stuff. I don't have time to touch on the BS, so let's jump right in! The Bailey Bowl: I love a good challenge, so when I was told to gather up a team and meet on a field for some fun and competition, I was there! We started off by having some good competitive fun. Then here comes the BS!"
When it comes to fighting, the housewives franchise has nothing on the ladies of Mob Wives! Case in point? The giant brawl at the season's premiere party with broken bottles rumored broken bones! I think that Renee Graziano could take on all of the housewives at once, and it still wouldn't be a fair fight! Well, maybe Teresa Giudice could get in a couple of good blows…
Even though Drita D'avanzo has calmed down since seasons past (she used to be the scariest one!), she still knows how to differentiate between the "fights" the Bravolebrities claim to have and the knock-down-drag-outs-call-the-police-I-see-blood! explosions for which their VH1 counterparts are known!
Thank you, reality television, for making my home state look like the classiest and most intelligent place in the country. It started with Myrtle Manor, and then CMT slid thirty minutes down the coast to Murrells Inlet for a little gem called Party Down South. Next week, I'll have the pleasure of recapping Bravo's attempt to ruin the beautiful and historic city I adore with a little train wreck called Southern Charm (it's how the other half live, y'all…and I cannot wait!).
While all of South Carolina is abuzz about the upcoming society-skeeze-fest, those characters up scenic Highway 17 need to make sure they aren't forgotten. Enter the brain trust that is Lyle Boudreaux of Party Down South glory.
I don't know what to think. Is this a 4-way gang up on Lisa Vanderpump? Or is this Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Fosterwere once on a Dream Team with Lisa and for some odd reason decided to split and take Lisa down by pulling others into the middle?
Meaning, that yes – Lisa was part of "tabloids-in-the-suitcase-gate" which is the new necklace-gate, which is the new-skipped-my-party-gate, which is the new stop-being-my-mama-gate which is the new ewww-get-my-husband's-mistress-out-my-plastic-face-gate, which is the new hair-flip-your-friends-talk-ish-about-you-gate, which is the new don't-talk-about-my-husband's-ALLEGED-cheating-gate. Basically we've come full circle and we're back to talking about Kyle Richardsand Mauricio's cheating, which NO ONE – I repeat NO ONE – cared about in the first place except Kyle who probably planted the stories to begin with!
On why she didn't believe Lisa the FIRST time she denied telling Brandi to bring the rag mags along, "This came at a time where the women kept bringing up the tabloids over and over and over again and it was a sore subject with my husband and last year Lisa didn't exactly take my word the first time I told her something. I've never lied to Lisa EVER. Yeah, so I'm being told, and everyone says "Brandi is the truth cannon! She tells the truth! She's so honest!"
Cedric shares via his rep, "Tonight’s episode shined the spotlight on Lisa and Ken’s habitual lying and viciousness. It would be easy for me to say “I told you so,” but that’s not my style. But I do want to clear up the nasty deportation rumor. Brandi is brutally honest and I love it. Most of the time she says exactly what everyone else is thinking. But sometimes she tells little white lies to amp up the drama. That's where things get complicated.
Cedric's side of the story: "It all started with the entirely scripted lie that "Me and Cedric are friends from modeling." The producers concocted the fib to get her on the show. Brandi, Lisa and I sold it, and the rest is history… Brandi's a star and I was kicked to the curb. At the time I was furious. I'd just been betrayed and fired because of Lisa's vicious lies. I was naïve; expecting Brandi to do the right thing and support me, as I had supported her. Instead, she dropped me like a hot potato. In hindsight, I'm O.K. with it because I know Lisa forced Brandi to cut me off."
