Last night was the ALDC’s final week in Los Angeles on Dance Moms…somehow I feel like I’ve typed that more than once! As usual, Abby Lee Miller was her normal horribly hateful self…with a few (very few!) moments of compassion. The episode was the battle of the video vixens, except (sadly), in this case, the “vixens” are preteens. Don’t get me started on age appropriateness! Much like MacKenzie was transformed into MackZ, Kendall is no longer Kendall. She’s Kendall K. As she and Jill arrive to the set of her military inspired music video, the first words out of Abby’s mouth are “take that, Holly!” Such class with this one! Abby goes on and on about how Holly has extracted Nia from the group by choosing to work with Aubrey O’Day. Let’s be honest…had she not, is there any one of you who thinks Nia would have gotten the same attention that Abby is now giving Kendall…K? Jill chooses to sleep at night by telling herself that Holly created the ultimate betrayal by not blindly trusting Abby to have her daughter’s best interests at heart. As long as Kendall is finally Abby’s golden child, Jill doesn’t mind potentially losing a friend. I think she’s forgotten just how fickle Abby can be!
At pyramid, JoJo is on the bottom for not standing out in the group routine. MacKenzie joins her for not living up to her potential while in LA. Nia and Kalani make up the middle rung for impressive performances in the group number. Kendall is in the second spot for a stellar video shoot, and Maddie regains her top spot for getting winning the overall solo routine at last week’s competition. This week, Maddie is performing at the Grammys, and she shares that she and Sia have become like family. Kendall and JoJo are granted solos, and JoJo will be dancing in a straight jacket. The group number is entitled Platinum, and Abby likens it to Kendall’s musical future. Nia stands stone-faced, getting zero recognition from her lifelong dance teacher. Abby reveals that this week’s competition will be judged by their peers.
Man – I’m disappointed in Bravo. They left out all the fun stuff from Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills to focus on Kim “RAMBLES OF MY SOBRIETY” Richards. Yes, we missed Eileen Davidson announcing she’s driving her Ford Flex to collect her Emmy, so we could instead hear KimKillah wax poetic about all the terrible things HARRY did while Lisa Rinna was sleeping, only to deny she ever said them because she doesn’t remember, only to admit she made the whole implication up! Anyway, Bravo – more Emmys and less Kimmies. (And how gorgeous did Eileen look in her Emmy gown).
So, what else happened. Oh – Yolanda Foster “downsized.” With Mauricio as her guide towards these uncharted territories of humble abodes, Yolanda house hunted. Yes – she realized having a 4,000 tree lemon grove was just a touch too much even for her perma-master cleanse state of being, so she looked at houses in the 8,000 – 4,500 square-foot range. But oh, they were just not for Yo!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West headed off to NYC this week to attend the TIME 100 Gala to celebrate the magazine’s “most influential” honorees. Since Kimye made that list, they graced everyone with their presence. Comedian Amy Schumer was apparently so overwhelmed about seeing the “royal couple” that she dropped at Yeezus’ feet right on the red carpet.
It may have been a fancy schmancy gala, but Kanye is above that, ya’ll. He wore his finest tattered t-shirt to the event. Geniuses do not cave to the pressures of conformity. He’s a rebel. And a fashion God. Kneel before him. (I said kneel, not face-plant, Amy) I feel like I should start a Go Fund Me campaign to buy Kanye some new Hanes t-shirts with the neckbands in tact.
I will give Kim Kardashian some credit, from certain angles her dress looks very nice and fits fairly well for once. But from other angles, you can see the sheer material and carefully placed fabric triangles are barely holding her boobs in.
Carole admits to Access Hollywood that she’s still dating Adam, the chef she met at Luann de Lesseps‘ Hamptons house on last week’s show! Carole insists she doesn’t generally date younger men but Adam is an exception, although one she’s really enjoying.
“Its nice to be with someone who hasn’t been through like 10 really bad relationships, or divorce, or like a crazy girl… there’s something kind of new and fresh,” Carole says of her relationship with Adam, whom she reveals is “almost 30.”
Tonight is the “final final” episode of the season for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Tonight is the airing of the “secrets revealed” episode and then we say a final goodbye to season 5.
It may be the end, but we’re all already thinking about next season. Will Kim Richards‘ recent tumble off the wagon affect her place on the show? Will newbies Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson be asked back for another season? Will Andy kick Brandi Glanville to the curb? Will Yolanda Foster be too sick to sign up this time around? We have so many questions and won’t get any firm answers until season six actually gears up to air late this year or early next year. But in the meantime, we can share our hopes and dreams for a perfect season 6. Take our polls below and share your opinions on what should happen next on RHOBH.
Claudia gave Kenya Moore‘s pilot, Life Twirls On, a rave review. “I thought it was cute and very fun to watch. The thing about Kenya I really like is that she is comfortable laughing at herself and not taking herself too seriously. She is entertaining. I thought Cynthia [Bailey] was really funny and totally committed to the part. It was fun to watch it with the girls, especially the part when Kenya played her own hair care commercial during the pilot! That was hilarious.”
Kim Richards is doing what any tried and true celebrity (or celebrity wannabe) is doing: turning her bad situation into a publicity grab! After being arrested for public intoxication and battery against a police officer at the swanky Beverly Hills Polo Lounge, the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star has opened up about the incident and her battle with alcoholism in a taped tell-all with Dr. Phil. Two people I utterly cannot stand in one TV segment – I haven’t been this lucky since his hard-nosed chat with Farrah Abraham!
In the sit-down, which will air next Tuesday, April 28th, Kim will take responsibility for her behavior, telling Dr. Phil, “I knew what I had done. The whole night is my fault. None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink.” Why do I feel like these are just hollow words said in an attempt to redeem her in the eyes of viewers? #WeSeeYou
