Admittedly, I do this every time a newbie joins a franchise. I fall in major like with the fresh face only to come back and bite my words a few seasons later. Real Housewives of New York is no different. I love Kristen Taekman. I adore that she's friends with Carole Radziwill and (Holla!) Heather Thomson. She's even a good sport with LuAnn deLesseps (who I like more now that she's in smaller doses) and Sonja Morgan. Best of all? She finds Aviva Drescher to be a total nut job…and, truth be told, I was quite the Aviva fan her freshman season. Hey, at least I realize my shortcomings, right?
Beginning her Bravo blog, Kristen jokes, "Yup, the 'new girl' is taking all these fancy NY Ladies to Montana. Naturally, Carole and I need a wax. Funny, so Carole and I spoke that morning and go figure, we both had waxes that day at the same place so we decided to go together! Don't all girlfriends go to hold their friend's hands while they get their kitty waxed? Ha ha! I roll in wax for real. I wax everything! Arms, legs, mustache, brows, kitty…TMI I know — but after all, this is a reality show! So we are waxed and ready for Montana! PS. Carole is a natural blonde who knew?? #shhhhhhhh" Bwahahaha! TMI, Kristen. T.M.I.
Catfish Season 3, Episode 7 “Solana & Elijah” Recap
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Reality Tea team as a contributor for Catfish: The TV Show! I thought I would begin with a small introduction to the show, for those of you that haven’t watched it before. It airs on MTV on Wednesday nights at 10PM, and it stars Nev Schulman and his partner in crime Max Joseph. The two traverse around the country, assisting people who email them asking for help with online experiences. Some of the people who write in are people who believe that they have found love, while others believe that they are assisting a person who promises careers and other glamorous opportunities in exchange for money or goods. Most, if not all of the time, the people who write in have never even seen the person that they are communicating with, and the people who are “catfishing” them refuse to video chat or speak on the phone. Usually, they use the excuse that they have a terrible internet connection, or that they don’t have access to a webcam (does any laptop come without a webcam anymore?). This show has increased in popularity so much over the past few seasons that it has inspired Webster’s Dictionary to officially add the word “Catfish” to its ever expanding repertoire (I’m not lying! Here’s the link, look for yourselves! It is the second definition at http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/catfish?show=0&t=1403128382).
And so, without further ado, let’s get into tonight’s episode!
We know, we know. There has been an avalanche of Kardashian posts lately. With the wedding, the new season starting, spinoffs being filmed and then North's first birthday, etc, there has been a tidal wave of news and nonsense. But we can never resist a Kim Kardashian fashion post! This is the last one for today – and maybe tomorrow will be a Kardashian-free day..we'll see!
Kim and Kanye stopped in NYC long enough to hang with North for her birthday, celebrate Father's Day and off they go again! Now Kim has joined Kanye over in France. Tonight she stepped out for the MailOnline boat party in this rope dress and we had to share – and get your opinion. Vote below and let us know if you think Kim finally nailed it or if she failed it yet again.
Joe Giudice's dad, Frank Giudice, died this afternoon at the age of 63, reportedly of a heart attack.
Reports are coming in which claim that Frank was building a chicken coop in the backyard and collapsed, and passed away on the scene. No other details are available at this time.
Our thoughts are with Teresa and the Giudice family. This has been a rough year for the family. Granted, they brought the legal drama upon themselves, but those poor girls are facing losing their parents for a few (or more) years and now they've lost a beloved grandfather, too.
Aviva Drescher has gone from sort of amusingly unhinged to absolutely deranged on this season of Real Housewives of New York. From her father George's antics, to fighting with everyone, Avicious needs to use her newly-minted inhaler to take several deep breaths and get ahold of herself.
After arguing with Kristen Taekman about the validity of her asthma in this week's episode, Aviva is ranting in her Bravo blog about what a horrible person Kristen is. Be ready – it's um… Avicious!
Aviva begins by insulting Kristen's husband, the highly contemptible Josh, and continues by insulting pretty much everything else about Kristen.
Kendall Jenner has been making quite the name for herself in the world of fashion. She has walked the runway for fashion powerhouses like Chanel and Marc Jacobs and landed in the pages of Vogue Paris.
But her latest fashion campaign for Givenchy has been leading some to believe her sister Kim and brand new brother-in-law Kanye West may have had a little to do with landing her the plum modeling gig. You see, Riccardo Tisci, is the creative director at Givenchy and also happens to be besties with Mr. and Mrs. West. They are so close, in fact, that Riccardo was responsible for custom clothes for their wedding last month.
Realizing the popularity of reunions to squeeze out any last-minute drama, Bravo has started giving them to more and more shows. However one show airing this summer will NOT be participating!
Due to all the drama with her mama, Kandi Burruss has told network execs that a Kandi's Wedding reunion is not happening. With Mama Joyce still hating on Todd Tuckerand slamming him in the media, Kandi and Todd have both called their wedding spinoff incredibly stressful. Todd was so disheartened by everything happening at the time he was ready to quit the whole thing.
