LuAnn de Lesseps has been an iconic figure on Real Housewives Of New York as The Countess. Although LuAnn was demoted last season, she’s back with a bang in season 7, and continuing to embrace a down-to-earth, relaxed attitude – including leaving behind the pretentious of the Upper East Side and Southampton.
Gracing the cover of Resident Magazine, LuAnn spills all about what led her to NYC, how she became involved in RHONY, and just how real she thinks reality TV is!
LuAnn says she signed on for reality TV after meeting Jill Zarin at a Michael Moore party (of all places – it was the screening of Sicko in 2007). Jill, ever the social climber, immediately climbed on board with adding a Countess to her friends roster.
On last night’s episode of Little Women LA, Briana Mason helps her daughter with bullying issues at school, Tonya Banks takes her boyfriend to task after hearing some unsettling information from Briana, and Terra Jolefinally announces her pregnancy to the group – not all of whom are happy about it.
We pick up where we left off, with Terra telling Joe she’s pregnant and Joe acting like a royal ass about the news. Joe finally admits it’s exciting and that he’s happy, though. Good job, Joe! They kiss and make up. Terra is relieved.
Tom Sandoval is permanently juggling two crazies at one time: his ex-girlfriend Kristen Doute and his betraying BFF Jax Taylor. You would think after all the years of enabling he’d have gotten a system down, but it turns out until recently the he hasn’t been standing up for himself, but now he is.
According to Tom 1, Jax, much like Stassi Schroeder, believes doesn’t understand that friendship works two-ways. “When I called Jax out about the San Diego girl, I was doing so because in the past — if and when Jax has ever had the smallest piece of dirt on Schwartz or I — he has embellished on it and then gone on to tell anyone with two ears,” the Vanderpump Rules star explained. “Then when confronted on this embellished dirt that he has had, he’s denied it to our face.”
Of course everyone immediately suspected MTV either paid for the ring or Nathan used the Teen Mom 2 star’s MTV money to buy it because generally unemployed people with three children to marginally support cannot afford diamonds that cost upwards of $4,000! Especially when you add court and legal fees to the bills they have to pay.
Of course, unemployed people generally don’t go on luxury vacations to St. Thomas with a group of friends, either! The Jenelle insists that Nathan both bought the ring himself and also paid for Jenelle, and 2 of their close friends to be in St. Thomas for the totally unplanned and impromptu proposal!
Ladies and gentlemen, put on take off your sunglasses and step into the shade. However, I must warn you, this is a scepter and weave-free zone! In case any of y’all were worried that hell was in the process of freezing over or that pigs may begin to sprout wings, Porsha Williams wants to assure you that the Kenya Moore hug on this past episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was nothing short of fake…like Kenya’s hair according to Brandi Glanville (although I am pretty convinced from Krayonce’s latest appearance on WWHL that while she may be crazy, she is #blessed with a beautiful and natural head of hair. Don’t be hatin’, ladies!).
After that more than tumultuous reunion, Kenya and Porsha have finally hugged it out–at Kenya’s prompting, no less!–in an attempt to put the past in the past. But did we viewers really buy it? Nope. And Porsha wants to make sure we all know not to buy what Twirl is selling!
Claudia Jordan just moved to Atlanta and was robbed! Don’t worry – it wasn’t her apartment (because she didn’t have anything to take as you recall, she’s was serving wine in Solo Cups and sitting on the floor atop a Target rug).
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star shared on instagram that her car was broken into and featured a photo of the smashed in windows. Claudia’s laptop was taken – hopefully there wasn’t anything too naughty on there! (steamy photos with Atlanta’s favorite sometimes bachelorRoger Bobb?!) – and she is offering a cash reward for whomever returns it.
Of course, the union of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian was the biggest “to do” of them all, but not necessarily in a good way. From parading their terrible fashions (again and again and again) all over Paris and Florence to throwing a tacky wedding reception, it was an exhausting time for us all.
Believe it or not, eleven other couples DARED to get married the same year as KANYE WEST. If you search, there’s probably an epic, egotistical rant on the internet about it. Anyway, the “other” wedding ceremonies, receptions, dresses ranged from tasteless to exquisite, and everything in between.
