Once a reality TV famewhore, always a reality TV famewhore, right?! To celebrate their ten-year anniversary, Alexis Bellino just renewed her vows to chimplant Jim Bellino in an over-the-top ceremony for WeTV’s ‘Celebrations‘ starring celebrity wedding planner David Tutera. Since being fired from Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis has been relatively quiet, but apparently she’s been trying to nab the former glory again.
According to reports Apollo is hurrying to finish a tell-all memoir before he begins serving his 8-year sentence. Apparently Apollo has to get the book done before heading to prison due to the law and he has hired multiple ghost writers to complete the project.
Joan Rivers, take-no-prisoners commentator on life, and a true icon passed away yesterday.
I’ve always loved Joan. I heard an NPR interview with her years ago where she described using humor and wit to pull herself up by her bootstraps after her husband’s suicide left her financially decimated and alone. It not only inspired me, it filled me with awe and had me bawling in the car. Joan never shied away from the truth – whether it was about herself or others. And it was that bravery that made her so beloved.
It’s women like Joan who have allowed me to do what I do today: have a job where I snark full-time to make people laugh, because she was one of the few who forged that path by demonstrating that women are irreverent, sarcastic, and that complaining can be therapeutic as well as entertaining. The Oscars will be sadder this year without Joan to question what celebs are wearing and what they were thinking when they put it on. I will miss her greatly.
Andy Cohen, a close friend of Joan’s who has worked with her for years, reminisced about the amazing woman he knew and shared that when she passed they were in the middle of pitching a reality show they developed together this summer.
It is no secret that this season of the Real Housewives of New York tanked in the ratings. So many unbelievable and made-up storylines annoyed viewers instead of entertained them. Then news broke that Andy Cohen and the other producers were looking to shake-up the cast in order to boost ratings.
You would think that with the number of high-profile women that live and work in New York City and the Hamptons, it would be a cinch to find some new — and interesting — ladies to join the cast. But apparently, many of those high profile women may have watched as well and now they have no interest in joining the circus.
Tameka Raymond, formerly married to Usher, is one of the driving forces behind new hit show Atlanta Exes. Already making a name for herself on the show as a drama starter with a ‘don’t care who I piss off’ attitude, Tameka’s ultra-famous ex is now speaking out about his former wife participating in a reality show which could very possibly put him and their former marriage in the hot seat!
There’s been rumors that Usher was extremely unhappy about Tameka potentially airing dirty laundry by appearing on the show, and he was allegedly worried that her inclusion in the reality TV world could damage his reputation.
Usher denies all this! “No, no. I have no feelings about it whatsoever,” Usher insists. “Actually, I haven’t even seen it.” Ushers two children with Tameka will not be part of the show.
