The stars of Shahs of Sunset never fail to baffle amuse me. No, they amuse baffle me. Both? Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi thinks Shahs of Sunset is the 'Rosa Parks' of TV (true story) and Mercedes "MJ" Javidsays Bravo makes her out to be a hotter mess than she really is (at least she's a lovable hot mess). MJ also reveals who her non-Shahs friends are on Bravo!
Recalling Rosa Parks and her pivotal role in the civil rights movement, GGsays, "She got a lot of drama for [her refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man], but at the end of the day it started something so revolutionary and I feel like we are doing the same in respect of the entertainment industry."
"Americans have always had such a bad outlook on the Middle East, but we are the most successful and radiant culture," GG adds. "I'm just glad they are finally looking at us."
On last night's Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller was just as out of control as usual. If she could get any uglier to these girls, I'm not sure I want to see it! The moms, thankfully, were relatively calm, and the girls, as always, were totally sweet and supportive to each other.
Abby reveals the pyramid. On the bottom is Chloe, which Christi is actually okay with for once. Chloe did forget her choreography. Nia and MacKenzie join her on the bottom…Nia for not taking corrections well, and MacKenzie for messing up the red carpet at the beginning of the previous group routine. Abby says she will never forgive MacKenzie for ruining the beginning of the group number..you remember, the one she never had the opportunity to practice before that moment. Dramatic much? She will not be invited to participate in group numbers going forward. Paige rounds out the lowest tier of the pyramid. Maddie is on the second level, and Abby mocks her for having Sophia's hairstyle but not her intensity. Kendall joins Maddie on the second tier. An absent Sophia takes the top spot. Melissa now knows what the other mothers feel like when their daughters are belittled.
The upcoming competition will be in Greensboro, North Carolina. Kelly brings up the fact that Brooke is not on the pyramid, and she wants to know if Brooke is still on the team. Abby is upset that Brooke didn't practice on the weekend after she was kicked out of the group number last minute, and she won't let Brooke participate this week either. MacKenzie is allowed to block out Sophia's part in the group number since Sophia is in Los Angeles filming a movie. Of course, Abby loves that. The dance is about immigration. MacKenzie and Paige score solos, while Maddie and Kendall will have a duet. The girls are excited, but Melissa is not. She's not used to Maddie not having a solo.
Oh there's always some shady drama business where the ladies and ladies' accouterments of Real Housewives of Atlanta are concerned!
One of RHOA's two resident heel-wearing hairdressers Lawrence Washington apparently has some skeletons in his closet as well. Lawrence entered the scene as She By SheBroke's constant companion and stylist, the two have since had a falling out over Lawrence allegedly destroying Sheree's hair. Did he destroy it because his cosmetology license was revoked and he is on probation?
According to court documents filed in the State of Georgia, Lawrence's license expired in March 2008 and he did not apply to have it reinstated until 2011. And what was he doing during that time? According to the documents illegally practicing as a hair stylist – and singeing weaves on RHOA, that's what! Lawrence also owns his own salon.
What say we about Vanderpump Rules except that these girls are seriously a mess. How any of them can possibly have boyfriends is a straight-up mystery to me.
Taking a break from Stassi Schroeder's ridiculous Jax Taylor entanglement – albeit a brief six second break – we are treated to the terminally insecure and immature Kristen Doute on a girlfriend tantrum bender.
Apparently everyone in LA is a part-time Sur employee and a maybe model/maybe hooker and they often live together and hook up. And sometimes when six degrees of Sur happens they run into each other at amateur staged for Bravo TV modeling shoots. Such would be the case with Kristen and boyfriend/concealer lover/musician/maybe hooker bedding Tom Sandoval.
Oh, Sean Lowe works out? I almost forgot. While glistening with sweat and annoying homely husbands across America, the Bachelor shares, "One week into it, I find myself really digging a lot of women." Only Sean knows which ones but the possibilities include Sarah, Kacie, Desiree, AshLee, Lindsay, Robyn, Jackie, Lesley, Selma, Catherine, Kristy, Leslie, Tierra, Taryn, Daniella, and Amanda. One of these women could (but probably won't) be Sean's future wife.
Chris Harrison arrives on the scene of the crazy to deliver the first date card. It's addressed to Lesley and reads, "How long will this love last?" Lesley is excited and goes on and on about dreams coming true and taking her relationship with Sean to the next level.
Sean brings Lesley to the Guinness World Records Museum. Lesley isn't too impressed, saying, "I'm thinking, um, this could be fun, but if I could have picked any place… I really didn't think we'd be coming to the Guinness World Records." Poor Lesley… a waste of a good (albeit way too short) dress is always tragic.
We are now officially ten episodes into this season of Teen Mom 2, and I worry that there is no end in sight. All of the girls seem to be mirroring each other's behavior. Jenelle Evans moves, then Leah Messer moves. Jenelle drops out of school, Leah drops out of school. Kailyn Lowry gets a new place, Chelsea Houska wants a fenced-in backyard. I guess I should be glad that they are all pretty interchangeable, right?
Kailyn has decided against moving to Texas to be fair to Jo. He is excited to hear that she plans to stay in Pennsylvania. She informs him that when her lease is up, she plans to look for another home about twenty minutes away. Does Jo minds driving twenty minutes back and forth to see his son? Um, I think Jo is glad that he doesn't have to travel back and forth to Texas! While Jo has Isaac, Kailyn decides to go bowling with Gigi and some of her friends. Kailyn is paired up with Gigi's friend Javi, and she thinks he's really cute…cute enough to marry?
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills continued arguing, battling, passive-aggressively sniping, and being fake to each other. They all need some hobbies.
Things begin back in the Moroccan restaurant of horrors. If you can imagine things got even more atrocious. As if Mauricio Umansky whining and shrieking at Brandi Glanville wasn't bad enough, then Taylor Armstrong started with the drunk histrionics.
I think Camille Grammer said it best: "Taylor, nobody cares. We've already heard your story." This time Taylor's drunken syrupy gaze blurriedly turned towards Yolanda Foster who is apparently a bad, bad, bad person because she's married to a rich man and doesn't act like an ass every single minute. Maybe Taylor should do master cleanse. It can't hurt and it's probably better than the wine cleanse she's been doing for the past couple years.
Taylor makes some threats about how she knows what really goes on with David Foster as one her "best friends for twenty years" was married to him. She's referring to Linda Thompson. And if you recall when Taylor arrived at Yolanda and David's home the man married to one of her best friends for a zillion years had no idea who she was. It wasn't all wine and roses then either, was it Taylor. Well it was all wine…
