Bravo took a leap of stupidity faith, probably hoping for some big ratings, and shelled out big money to have Lindsay Lohan participate in an episode of Million Dollar Decorators.
All was going fine at first, with Lindsay playing along and filming the process of picking out the approximately $200,000 in swag for her rented mansion earlier this spring. Things went south when the show needed to film the big reveal with the troubled starlet, who blew them off and refused to finish taping the footage needed.
Going ahead without her and filming it at the house was out of the question because the home was reportedly so trashed and messy that there's no way they could recreate the final look. To salvage the episode in the only way they could, the producers were forced to cobble together some post-renovation footage that was taped along the way without Lindsay.
They really can't act too surprised over this. The woman is notorious for being an unreliable, uncooperative mess for the past how many years…
TELL US – SHOULD BRAVO SUE LINDSAY FOR SABOTAGING THE EPISODE?
Ding Dong the wig is gone! Real Housewives of Atlanta lost one of its original ladies in last week's episode when an enraged Kim Zolciak stormed out of a pre-cast trip planning brunch. Kim, who assured her co-stars she could travel during certain dates, then changed her mind citing her ever-shifting pregnancy due date.
In her last Bravo Blog for the show that made her wigs a household name, Kim speaks out about why she felt she had to quit – and denies she was ever on board for the Anguilla trip!
"Going to Anguilla would have been the trip of a lifetime, but under DOCTOR’S ORDERS I was unable to travel," Kim begins. "I had baby Kash August 15th, which was 5 weeks after that brunch!"
"Traveling 32 weeks pregnant is such a scary risk and for the women to think that I was willing to take that risk FOR THEM is absurd, especially since I don't consider them my friends."
Producers fired back, stating the obvious (to everyone except Niki): that nobody OWNS "barbie anything" except for Mattel. "Any claim that Ms. Ghazian has acquired any property rights to a term that is a basic derivative of "Barbie" (i.e. "Persian Barbie") is unsound and not defensible."
The term isn't meant to be a title or nickname for Lilly, Bravo only used it to refer to her (itty bitty) physical appearance.
Once again it has been a busy week in the world of reality TV. We saw a lot of drama – on and off the shows and attempted to keep up with the non-stop gossip! Here's a look at what you might have missed!
I mean, I don't doubt that Andy Cohen and his minions select ladies who are going to bring the drama and then puts them in situations which are going to create it to the umpteenth degree. The ladies of Beverly Hills are no different. Taylor Armstrong alone brings enough dramatics for a Broadway production.
Whitney and Booger will wed October 31, 2013. Whitney wants a Halloween wedding, 13 bridesmaids, 13 groomsmen, and a black wedding dress. OK! magazine has the video announcement.
Second – Whitney is pregnant!
Grandma-to-be Bonnie Blossmantweeted: Whitney is 8 weeks pregnant and due July 24. There's no doubt in my mind that Whitney and Booger's baby will come out super cute, tattooed, and pierced. I can hear Bonnie in the delivery room now, "BRANDON!" Booger, "That was all Whitney! I can't stop her!"
