Ariana Madix usually doesn’t let the nonsense of Vanderpump Rules phase her too much. As the general port of calm in the storm, she refrains from mixing herself up in the drama of insane asylum inmates populating Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant.
But last week’s episode? That was the episode that made Ariana snap. Apparently it had to do with birthdays, Jax Taylor‘s lies, and Stassi Schroederacting like they’re all nobodies to her elevated status of fully actualized adult human being.
Tonight Celebrity Apprentice returns after yesterday’s season premiere which left Keshia Knight Pulliam fired for not reaching out to some big-name potential donors like Bill Cosby. Hello – Donald Trump wants publicity!
Keshia explained that she simply didn’t feel comfortable exploiting the connection and was disappointed it became a focal point in her ability to successfully complete the Pie Face task.
“I know ‘The Cosby Show’ is in reruns, and everyone thinks that we’re this family that has dinner every Friday night, but the reality was I hadn’t spoken to Mr. Cosby. I felt that it would be tactless, very rude to call someone and be like, ‘Hey, so, let me have some money right now,'” Keshiatold The Today Show about her firing.
Brandi Glanville is giving me some major “Single White Female” vibes in that picture. I fear for Lisa Vanderpump‘s swans. <Swan Boiler Brandi> I see scary stalker, but Brandi called it “uncomfortable” and “nervous” in her latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog. And when she’s nervous, she says stupid things. So Brandi’s disgusting mouth is not Brandi’s fault. It’s Lisa‘s for looking at her and making her feel nervous. <eye roll>
About her housewarming party, Brandi said, “I’m so excited to be in our new home after stressfully floating around for the entire summer. I love this house. It’s got a warm happy feel to it. I decided to throw a proper party to celebrate our happy new home. My parents are coming and a few friends. I invited all the ladies, of course, because I didn’t want to leave anyone out. Everybody but Lisa V and Ken RSVP’d. She told me several times she wouldn’t be coming, so as far as I was concerned, she was not coming, but the show and the party must go on!”
It looks like Teresa Giudice might not be spending the whole year of 2015 in federal prison. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s lawyer spoke out this morning about Teresa’s last hours as a free woman and when we can expect her back home with her family.
Teresa will have to serve at least 85% of her 15 months, so her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. shared this morning that she may be out by year’s end. “We project she will be home sometime before Christmas.”
Last night reinforced an important lesson on Celebrity Apprentice, if you’re classy – reality TV is no place for you. Just a reminder: this recap, of course, contains spoilers so don’t read if you’ve been avoiding the internet like the plague for the last 24-hours.
The women’s team contains: Brandi (reality mega-villain and best selling tweeter about what she does with her twatter), Kenya Moore (Former Miss WHO-S-A, who had a Scepter App hidden her purse so not to violate the anti-props contract stipulations), Leeza Gibbons (talk show host), failed reality star Kate Gosselin (minus her 8 and the tumorous bunion known as Jon), Jamie Anderson (a former Olympic snowboarder with a long history of legal imbroglios who has the same plastic surgeon as Brandi – face. does. not. move.), Vivica A. Fox (hoping to resurrect her acting career by playing evil), Shawn Johnson (a former Olympic gold medalist who thinks social media usage qualifies as a legitimate career. Was she on DWTS?), and Keisha Knight Pulliam (formerly Rudy of The Cosby Show). The women’s team is infinitely more diabolical and interesting than the men’s team, but I suppose they came out and tried to play, so we have to talk about them.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Gretchen Rossi is no stranger to rumors of fake storylines, but it definitely hits a nerve with her. Last night Gretchen posted the photo above and shared “Me and my sweetie tonight @sladesmiley.”
One of her followers blasted her on Instagram, writing, “They made all the wedding bs up for the show that’s why she was fired bc she just did it for a story line.”
