Heather Thomson was understandably upset about being banished to the street to await Lady Morgan as she leisurely prepared to leave for Atlantic City. Heather insists she wouldn’t have minded waiting, but she does mind the lack of courtesy they were shown. Apparently Lady Morgan’s manners went along with her money! Heather also has some words for Bethenny Frankel!
“I totally understand running late. I’m usually not the best at being on time, and there never seems to be enough hours for all the things I try to jam into my day. I get it,” the Real Housewives Of New York star acknowledges. “I don’t like to pick on people about things like this, either. We were all given a time to meet at Sonja’s–10am. She wasn’t ready, and Bethenny was going to be late, too.
“The kind and hospitable thing to do at this point would have been to invite your guests into your home to wait, not leave them standing in the cold rain for over an hour. What happened to common courtesy and manners?” wonders Heather.
The day of reckoning has come for Kingsley’sfirst (reported) bite victim, 80-year old former family friend of Kim Richards, Kay Rozario.
Rozario filed suit after she was bitten on her hand – reportedly down to the bone – by Kim’s pit bull while staying at her house back in March 2014. Although she was seeking restitution in the amount of roughly $1 million, Rozario was ultimately awarded only $8,083.53. This amount was $4 grand higher than the cost of her medical bills – $4,083.53 – which Kim refused to pay, thus sparking the initial lawsuit. The judge awarded a moderately higher amount because he said Rozario “deserved some more cash for emotional distress and trauma after the attack,” according to TMZ.
True to form, Kim never responded to Rozario’s lawsuit, so the judge was forced to enter a default judgment.
I have a confession. I love American Idol. In 13 years, I haven’t ever missed an episode, and it’s one of the few shows I watch the night it airs. Not live, mind you, because I need the power to fast forward. I constantly try to fast forward the commercials if I watch a show live. The struggle is real.
On Wednesday, I was pleasantly surprised when Nick Fradiani was named the winner of American Idol 14. Quentin Alexander was my favorite contestant this season. After he was eliminated, I was rooting for Nick, but I thought Clark Beckham had it in the bag.
“Everybody was saying I was kind of the underdog, and I think that’s true,” said Nick. He added that expected Clark or Jax to win. “Nobody had me pegged as the winner. I wasn’t doing anything that was really impressing people. Then something clicked the last six weeks or so. I got hot at the right time.” Check out pictures from the Season 14 finale of American Idol below.
All of the Real Housewives of New Yorkladies are weighing in on the highlights – or the lowlights?- of this week’s episode. And at the epicenter of it all is none other than everyone’s favorite queen of delusional drinking thinking: Sonja Morgan. Dorinda Medley shares her take on their Atlantic City trip in her latest Bravo blog.
Beginning with the issue of waiting for Good Lady Morgan to emerge from her crumbling castle, Dorinda says it “would’ve been nice to have the limo there already, yes, but it’s not like we were being held in a hot subway station in the middle of August.” She adds, “Heather [Thomson], on the other hand, was pissed…and I mean pissed. She took it very personally that we were kept waiting in the foyer and, naturally, Heather expressed it to Sonja…and Bethenny [Frankel]…and Ramona [Singer]…loud and clear. More than once.” Waiting in the rain wasn’t worth the fights that broke out afterward either considering who they were dealing with, says Dorinda: “I don’t think it required a burning at the stake. I kinda expected Sonja to be late. C’mon…she’s Lady Morgan.”
For comparison’s sake, part three of the season 6 reunion logged 4.29 million viewers and the season 6 average was 3.87 million viewers. While the decline is troublesome, IMHO, Real Housewives of Atlanta still brings more viewers to Bravo than the others in the franchise. Case in point: this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York attracted just 1.385 million viewers.
Absolutely nothing the public says can get Bethenny Frankel rattled these days, she says. A hot-and-cold figure as a returning cast member of the Real Housewives of New York this season, Bethenny has “given up caring what people think of her,” according to Page Six. “The line for my personal private life has been so blurred,” says Bethenny, that she has basically become immune to the comments swirling around her. Especially when it comes to her messy divorce from Jason Hoppy, who she is now forced to pay $26,000 a month, plus $100,000 in lawyer fees as part of their divorce settlement.
Despite the media’s often negative depiction of Bethenny as a wife, business woman, and even a mother, the Skinnygirl mogul says she’s become numb to bad press. “It’s great because it’s created a Teflon around me that I don’t even notice it. Nobody could say anything bad about me that would really affect me.” Claiming that her persona on RHONY is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get scenario, Bethenny says she not a person who tries “to manufacture who they are. I’m honest, and that’s why I’ve been successful at it.”
It was all about the hot mess express on Monday’s episode of Southern Charm, but the mode of transportation wasn’t a crazy train–instead it was a golf cart! After Kathryn Dennis went off on Whitney Sudler-Smith in a cyclone-esque storm of hate (one friend described it as “feral”), Craig Conover came to her rescue with more vino, keys to a battery operated tiny-car, and sticks and sand to generate body heat. It was, as you all recall, scandalous.
While Shepard “Shep” Rose had plenty to say about Craig’s recent tomfoolery during the group’s dinner on Jekyll Island, Cameran Eubanks has been the one talking it about it post-show. While some see her as a pot-stirrer, I honestly believe she cares for these turds, and she’s at her wits end trying to help them make good decisions. Of course, we all know that good decisions make for bad reality television. Thankfully for Bravo, there is no shortage of idiotic behavior when it comes to the charming cast!
