On last night’s bittersweet Flipping Out, it’s all about the circle of life. While Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward get serious about taking steps toward having a child via surrogacy, they get some devastating news about Jeff’s beloved 14-year old cat, Stewie.
At Gramercy, Jeff, Jenni Pulos, and Gage are getting the day started with (what else?) checklists of appointments. Their first appointment of the day is with the Egg Hunter, LA’s resident surrogacy coordinator who helps future parents “hunt” for the right woman as an egg donor. It’s like online dating, but for Jeff, it’s more like Grindr. Because he’s more worried about Who’s Hot and Who’s Not rather than who gets 4.0s in college, pays taxes, and votes. Gage is just worried that if they’re not discerning, the worst case scenario would be “to have a little Joe.” Since Jeff is a “little older” (cough, cough) than Gage, he’s going to be the sperm donor for Baby #1, while Gage will cough up the goods for Baby #2. “You gotta understand, I am not a young person,” says Jeff. “When you’re dropping the kid off at college, you’ll be dropping me off at the Home.”
To soften the blow of the cancellation of NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches, Bravo is giving us Reza Farahan and Tabatha Coffey. They won’t be on a road trip together, because I would like to think not even Bravo would do that to our beloved Tabatha, but they have each scored a potential new show.
Bravo announced three new shows in development yesterday – Yours, Mine or Ours (same premise as Love It or List It on HGTV), Heir Heads, and Tabatha’s Life Take Over (similar to Iyanla: Fix My Life). Check out the press release below and let us know which of these new reality shows you plan to watch.
Lots of exciting happenings over at Vanderpump Rules, which was just officially renewed for its fourth season! Filming has been underway for a while now, but they got the official re-up notice from Bravo and now it’s full-speed ahead.
As a reality TV newbie, Meghan listed “not running into the crew” and “having to wear fake eyelashes” as the only two things that took some getting used to. Otherwise, she was ready and willing to film, “Being on a reality TV show, you have to be okay in front of the cameras, otherwise you don’t have a story. You don’t have a show.”
According to a new report Heather Thomson is done being a Housewife. Holla! Heather has been having a rough season on Real Housewives Of New York; her storyline has been dominated by petty feuds and background drama, and last night was essentially the end of her friendship with Luann de Lesseps.
It comes as no surprise that Heather may be over playing the Bravo game and won’t be re-singing a contract next season. A source close to Heather reveals she is leaving the show after three seasons to focus on family, REAL friends (instead of reality TV ones) and expanding her YummieTummie empire.
Logan wasn’t due until August 1st, so imagine Lisa‘s surprise when she got the “it’s time” call on July 3rd.
“I got a phone call from the surrogate. She was going into contractions,” shared Lisa. “And, of course, I started flipping out because it was so early. He wasn’t supposed to be due until August 1st. I was trying to pack a bag, trying to pack his bag. My hair was soaking wet. [I was] trying to book a flight because I had to fly to another city within Florida.”
The discomfort of watching Shannonand David Beador’smarriage crumble on camera during the Real Housewives of Orange Country is off the charts this season (or maybe that’s just me?). This week, Shannon reflects on how tough it is to watch “every single negative moment” she has with David, but reassures viewers that there are good times ahead. She also claims that David is really trying to make their marriage work. Well, I don’t know if the viewers need to be reassured of anything at this point, but let’s dig in to her blog nonetheless!
“What an episode,” begins Shannon. “Such joy and such sorrow all at the same time.” Happy that Tamra Judge visited Vicki Gunvalson before she traveled to her mother’s funeral, Shannon also touches on the “unique relationship” that her own daughter, Stella, has with “Aunt Vicki.” She shares that her girls “of course heard everything that had happened when Vicki was at the bunco party and Stella took my phone and wrote Vicki the sweetest, heartfelt text the next day.”
