Oh, the progression that is Mob Wives! The students have become the teachers. Just a few short seasons ago, some of these women were one bitch slap from an assault charge, and now those same ladies are the voices of reason. That’s growth, y’all!
As we return to the scene of the rat race, er, girl fight, Karen Gravano is shoulder checking Natalie Guercio into a brick wall. Kudos to Karen for an often under-utilized move! Next year, poor Big Ang will be celebrating the one year anniversary of the time that the bar’s seven year anniversary was one upped by a spandexed Natalie trying to assert her toughness. Bystanders quickly intervene, and Drita D’avanzo likens it to better than cable. Storm wonders why his girlfriend had to go after Natalie after London already admitted (and hugged it out regarding) all of her faults. At home, Drita is excited that things are going so well with Lee. While he still won’t appear on the show, they burn through their cell phone minutes. His girls adore having him home, and he’s happy to play tutor to his two daughters. Lee admits that it’s hard being on the outside, and the pair is working so much that it’s hard to make time together. He urges her to make plans for an upcoming date night.
You know, I used to think couples who swam in power plant pollution infested waters together stayed together, but now I’m not so sure. I mean, look at what has become of Leah Calvert and Jeremy Calvert. First, Leah‘s hookup with Robbie Kidd was caught on a deer cam. Then, Jeremy‘s wife, that would be Leah in case you don’t have your Teen Mom 2 flowchart handy, and Jeremy’s new Leah, that would be Brittany Musick, compared pictures of Jeremy’s peen.
And, um, we have a match!
Leah first reached out to Brittany on Twitter. Needless to say, that exchange didn’t go well. Brittany called Leah a home wrecker and defended her decision to get to know Jeremy after he pursued her on Facebook. “I just heard about their divorce and he confirmed it,” she said. “So why not talk to him and chill? You’re never promised tomorrow.” At some point, however, Leah and Brittany exchanged texts. As well as a pic of Little Jeremy. Is nothing sacred anymore?
Also involved to lend support to the important message were Derek J,Miss Lawrence, and Kenya’s assistant Brandon (he of the Apollo Nida beat-down). Claudia announced on instagram that the PSA would actually be “coming soon to the White House!”
Everyone is always trying to figure out which Real Housewives earn the most! Who is bringing home the most bacon per franchise – and the biggest question: who is the highest earner of them all? We’ve heard a lot of varying reports, but here comes another one speculating about the Housewives salaries.
Desperate to restore Real Housewives Of New York, Bravo tried to attract former supermodels and celebrity chefs to the franchise, but had to settle for Bethenny Frankel instead. In exchange, the network is rumored to have agreed to pay her $1 million + bonuses depending on the 7th season’s success.
Poor Kim Richards. the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is trying to get her life back on track, but she keeps straddling hurdles, especially when it comes to her beloved pit bull Kingsley. As you know, Kim gave Kingsley away after attacking a friend as well as her niece Alexia. Kim has been heartbroken over the chain of events, and now she’s facing a legal battle from Kay Rozario over the attack.
This makes me sad on so many levels. It was clear how much Kim and Kingsley loved one another. I have a dog (thankfully one who isn’t easily provoked), and I have been attacked by a friend’s dog (thankfully nothing that a few stitches couldn’t mend), and it’s hard on all sides. I certainly felt for my friend who felt terribly for her dog’s behavior. That said, the dog had a long history of “being protective” to the point of attacking. Also, I hope that people don’t automatically look to the breed for blame. Anyone who has ever had a pit for a pet (I haven’t but would in a heartbeat) know they are, as a whole, some of the sweetest, most loving animals. Okay, I’ll stop Sarah McLaughlin-ing y’all and get down from my soap box. Let’s get an update on that lawsuit, shall we?
“It’s not about them,” Wendy insists. “It’s a book about me and what I do. It’s not an exposé of her or her family.” A) Let’s see how far you get with that Wendy before the NBC/Bravo machine steps in with a C&D letter and B) Let’s be honest – no one wants to read about you, except what you know about Teresa!
Kyle opened up about Brandi‘s insults in a recent interview. “I honestly don’t listen to one thing she says anymore,” she insisted. “If she had said something like this a few years ago, I would have been upset, hurt, and so offended, but now I feel like I don’t pay attention to one thing that comes out of her mouth.”
Bethenny Frankel returned to Real Housewives Of New York to save her career after a disastrous divorce and the network hoped she could also bolster ratings for the sagging show, but it seems she has a case of the sour grapes over her decision. As a result Bethenny isn’t meshing well with her co-stars, and they’re also bitter that she’s getting paid way more than they are to do nothing but be difficult and demanding!
Sources say Bethenny is refusing to film certain scenes or interact in ways she considers “fake,” which is a real departure to her past approach on reality TV. Bethenny’s co-stars feel she’s acting like a spoiled, entitled “brat” especially since they took pay cuts from Bravo in order for the network to finance Bethenny’s return.
