“I am a boss,” states Heather. “There are all different types of people. Not everyone has those leadership skills, or steps out, or has that real Type A personality.”
The Real Housewives Of New York star has butted heads with castmates over her outspokenness and take charge attitude, but she feels it’s served her well. However, if Heather were involved with one of the ladies in a business environment, it’s surprising who she’d choose to work with. For instance – if Heather had to hire a Housewife as an apprentice she would hire Ramona Singer “in a second.”
America’s worst boyfriend? Maybe, but now he’ll possibly be America’s worst cook too! Ex-Bachelor contestant Chris Soules is not hiding from the limelight after his split from fiance’ Whitney Bischoff. Chris, along with other reality has-beens stars like Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Kendra Wilkinson will be appearing on the Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The show, hosted by Food Network celebrity chefs Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray, gathers a group of “kitchen-challenged celebrities” and subjects them to a culinary boot-camp of sorts. Production, which is already underway, reveals that Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White, and Barry Williams will also be joining as willing victims, er, cast members. A grand prize of $50,000 for charity will go to the celebrity who outlasts and out-cooks the others.
Just when you think this story could not get sadder… Leah finalized her divorce over the phone from rehab, where she’s getting help for stress and depression.
Leah was served divorce papers on April 14th – and she and Jeremy finalized their divorce on Monday. I will meet y’all back here in another 54 DAYS to report that Leah is engaged, pregnant, married, divorced – all of the above? – again.
Unfortunately, I can’t go back to an easier time when memories of “go-go juice” and “sketti” served in the finest of Cool-Whip containers meant that life was simple, back when one’s only concerns were exposing forklift foot if a water park’s rip-roarin’ slide proved too much for a pedicured ankle sock or whether a scheduling conflict with the local railroad would create a loud, late night train situation. Nope, I can’t hop in my Kuntry Store purchased time machine and unlearn all I now know about the folks of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Thanks June Shannon.
When TLC’s cash cow was at the height of popularity, the line was clearly drawn before those who (like me) found the family’s ridiculous antics equally endearing and disgusting and those who thought the show’s fans were verging on insanity. Sure, the six-year-old beauty queen wannabe Alana Thompson was sassy to the point of rude, but her one-liners were everything. The family was open about their past struggles (June, a grandmother in her mid-thirties has four daughters from various incarcerated men), but who am I to judge? Plus, what’s not to love about Sugar Bear?
Yolanda didn’t specify which type of treatments she’s undergoing this time around. She captioned her photos, “Being Positive in a Negative situation isn’t naive, it’s leadership on a mission…… #DeterminedToFindACure #AffordableForAll #ChronicLymeDiseaseAwareness.” And she added, “Until you are broken you don’t really know what you’re made of.”
Farrah Abraham‘s interviews never fail to amuse me, and her latest, talking to Cosmo after they named her one of the Internet’s Most Fascinating People, was no exception. The Teen Mom OG star explained how she deals with her haters, why her fans admire her, how she’s changed over the years, and much more. The highlights:
There are many words in Farrah‘s portfolio of literacy but humble is not one of them. “No matter what I’ve been doing, I’ve been doing the best in it that we know of,” she said. “What I’m saying by that is, if I’m developing novelty toys, I’m winning awards. If I’m writing books, I’m a New York Times best seller – how do I do it all? I don’t know.”
Like many of us, Kristen Taekman just wants to channel her inner Heather and ask Bethenny Frankel:What’s your damage? On this week’s Real Housewives of New York, Kristen summons her courage to do just that. But much to Kristen’s dismay, Bethenny’s reply is, well, not a reply at all. It is more of a walking away and dismissing her like a parking valet who just dropped off Bethenny’s newest roving “home.” And thus Kristen is systematically ignored for one more episode of RHONY. In her Bravo blog, Kristen tries valiantly to spread the goodwill around to her castmates, while still whining at full volume about the fact that Bethenny just “doesn’t like her!”
Kristen begins by rehashing the Berkshires dinner, asking, “How do we get to know Bethenny if she’s got this wall up we can’t penetrate?” Well, it certainly ain’t gonna be by accusing her of badmouthing your business. Adding some over-the-top praise (complete with six whole “!!!!!!”s) for Bethenny’s business acumen, Kristen fake-gushes, “Bethenny’s brand summit! Wow! I I would have loved to have been there. It seems like one could have learned a lot! This is a perfect opportunity for Sonja [Morgan]–it’s great for her to see what her business could aspire to be! Damn I can’t believe how big Skinnygirl has become! I can only dream that Pop of Color will grow to be that big one day!
