There’s an old saying that when one door closes, another door opens. I am so thankful that holds true with VH1 and the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Sure, this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is going by way too quickly (seriously…is it shorter than normal?), and I’ll miss Stevie J., Yung Joc, and the crew’s crazy shenanigans, but at least we’ve got Love & Hip Hop Hollywood waiting in the wings! Atlanta may be the fan favorite, but laughing at Ray J squeak through each episode as he talks his tough guy game is a close second!
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait much longer as the sophomore season premieres Monday, September 7th at 8PM/ET. Judging by the previews that have been released, we’re in for quite a treat! In case you were wondering, Ray J and Soulja Boy (I’d forgotten how much he looks like a tatted preteen–adorable!) are still having issues with monogamy. Say it ain’t so! Don’t believe me? Enjoy the preview clips after the jump!
Brandi interviewed (obviously I use that term loosely) RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Michelle Visage, who was a treat to listen to, on her most recent podcast. Unfortunately, as per usual, Brandi talked about herself as much as she could.
When the subject of fame/finances came up, Brandi shared, “I know all of this could be over tomorrow. I’m not stupid like that. I save my money and, you know, I don’t own a house yet and we’re moving now into an apartment from a house. I feel like I’m kind of going backwards. It is hard because all I wanted to do was buy something and then, you know, the job situation turned around.”
E!’s Fashion Police hasn’t been the same without the unparalleled wit of Joan Rivers, but it looks like the network is ready to shake things up a bit for their premiere August 31. Alongside regular hosts Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski will be Real Housewives of Atlanta’s (ex) star NeNe Leakes! Awesomely edgy comedienne Margaret Cho will join NeNe as guest host for the night too. (Any wagers out there on how hard core Cho will go up against Giuliana or, for that matter, NeNe?)
The premiere episode of Fashion Police featuring Nene and Cho will cover the hits and tragic misses of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Guest hosts for the five remaining FP episodes following the premiere will be announced on social media each Monday leading up to the show. No word yet on who the guest hosts will be, but I’m betting there’s another reality star in the mix somewhere. Or perhapsTeresa Giudice will be live tweeting from prison? Juuuust kidding.
Tamra Judge is not ready to give up on rebuilding a relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Sydney – even if that means taking ex-husband Simon Barney back to court! This time Tamra is fighting to have Simon’s full custody of Sydney revoked claiming he is in contempt of court. I’d say he’s contemptuous alright!
The exes have been waging war against each other over custody after Simon filed court documents barring their three minor children from appearing on Real Housewives Of Orange County, plus accusing Tamra of abuse and neglect. Simon was seeking to revoke joint custody from Tamra. However, Simon was called out by a judge for exaggerating his claims, for which he had no proof, although the judge upheld the decision that the kids be kept off reality TV.
Always one to jump aboard the USS Celebrity Trainwreck, Dr. Drew commented on Kim’s latest shenanigan and described it as a desperate cry for help from the former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star. Luckily for Kim, Kathy tweeted in defense (does that hold up in a court of law) of her sister.
I was still puzzling over who ponied up Kim’s $5,000 bail – especially since she was said to be living inside the palatial walls of her luxury SUV – but I guess I have my answer, everyone’s favorite magician: Kathy!
Starting with the model casting that Sonja Morgan invited Bethenny and Heather Thomson to, Bethenny writes, “The model casting scene was possibly one of my favorites all season. I really appreciate the women on the show so much, and Heather was downright hilarious when her ‘pits started sweating.’ She was trying to be so positive and supportive, but you could tell she has experience and had never heard of this fashion plan before.”
They say you get the best gossip at the beauty salon! In Kenya Moore’scase, you can learn a lot while a reality star is getting her hair done! Kenya held a quick Q&A with her fans yesterday while she was under the dryer, revealing that she’s writing a book, is fielding multiple talk show offers, has a spinoff coming soon, and threw some shade NeNe’s way when discussing the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
During the Q&A, Kenya says that she’d love to do a talk show and has already received many offers to do one. “I would love to. I have had a lot of offers for them…” And when she says that her biggest accomplishment so far is surviving her childhood, Kenya then reveals she has a book due out next year about her life story.
