First, Peggy expresses disappointment that Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador refused to attend her event out of sheer pettiness. Peggy also regrets being so curt with Shannon on the phone: “I’m glad that the girls were able to make it to our Lamborghini event, although sad that Tamra and Shannon weren’t able to attend. Upon calling Shannon to invite her to the event I hadn’t realized how abruptly I cut her off. The reason why I tried to keep the conversation short was because I didn’t want her to relive those dark moments. She did not owe me any explanation as to why she wasn’t able to attend.”
After what felt like an unusually long charter season on Below Deck Mediterranean, we have finally arrived at tonight’s finale. Between all the hook ups, shifting friendship alliances and overdramatic fights, it’s hard to remember what the dynamic was even like at the start of the season. But one relationship we couldn’t forget (since it dragged out over every single episode) was the love triangle between Chef Adam Glick, Bosun Wesley Wiz Walton and Deckhand/Heartbreaker of the High Seas Malia White. And in case you thought the day would never come, it’s judgement day for Malia. Well, sort of. I have news for all of you Malia haters out there – you might be disappointed at the end of this.
Try as he might, Adam is unable to get Wiz-Golly-Shucks-I-Really-Like-The-Girl to truly give a damn that he is being played like a Croatian fiddle by Malia. I don’t even know if there is such a thing as a Croatian fiddle but if there is, Wiz is being played like one. Adam has not only prepared his speech to Wiz but he also did some “cross referencing” of dates, texts and locations of Malia’s tongue so that he could be fully present all of the evidence to Wiz to make sure he does not befall the same fate as Adam’s poor little broken grown-man heart. I mean, really, does Adam just have the worst case of being a sore loser or what? Well, maybe not the worst, as you’re about to see with The Milkshake Man later this episode, but Adam is close.
Jenelle Evans recently released a new memoirRead Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teen Mom, because I guess she wanted to explain how her life became so crazy. And, per the usual, according to Jenelle, everything is Barbara Evans‘ fault!
The Teen Mom 2 star purports that Barbara tricked her into signing over custody of Jace and blames her mom for an unhappy childhood after her father left – she claims Barbara pushed him out after an accident in which he fell down the stairs while holding her as a baby. Barbara reveals that Jenelle’s dad actually left when she was 3.
Barbara is furious by Jenelle’s latest betrayal and is adamant that Jenelle’s tales are “not even true!”
Last night’s Dance Momswas a veritable mess which comes as no surprise to those of us who have been watching this train wreck since its inception. However, normally I cringe at the ladies’ behavior, but that isn’t what I was doing with the latest episode. No, instead, I was in awe of Abby Lee Miller‘s boy toy, Jordy. He is a rapper. He is a vegan. Ladies and gentlemen, we received the greatest gift courtesy of Abby Lee…the earth’s first (and dare I say, only) vegan rapper. The world is a beautiful place (well, except for diary farms and meat packing). I’d been avoiding that new Netflix documentary because I love stuffing my face with junk far too much, but Jordy may have converted me.
As the show begins, we learn Abby is a week away from sentencing, and she’s spending that time touring Europe for some appearances and not at their upcoming competition. She calls the team together a day early for rehearsals so she can have some time with them before she leaves. Could this be Abby’s last pyramid? Fingers crossed! Abby breezes through the once drawn out tradition. Some girl Camryn, Nia, Kendall, and Brynn make up the bottom row, followed by Lilliana, Elliana, and an absent Kalani. Some girl Maesi is at the top of her pyramid, and hats off to her mother for rocking that amazing hairstyle. Or perhaps, should I say, hats on? In one of Abby’s beloved twists, she yanks the promised solos to the Ianas and gives them to Kalani, Brynn, and Kendall. The veteran moms are convinced this is a calculated move to make their girls’ last routine under Abby’s teaching a flop. They believe it will give Abby the opportunity to give up on the older dancers and focus on the minis…in the event she doesn’t go to jail.
The drama began after their FOUR-YEAR divorce finally wrapped up. Bethenny reported that Jason was consistently sending her a barrage of nasty texts, FaceTime calls and emails. After Jason publicly confronted her, the Real Housewives Of New York star called the police and had him arrested for stalking and harassment. Further charges followed when he still didn’t stop.
Yesterday Jason was back in court where he decided against accepting a proposed plea deal. Remember when we thought Jason was the normal one? Now it’s more of a case two wrongs don’t make a skinnygirl right!
Tonight is the season finale of Below Deck Mediterranean and this time we really mean it. Last week I mistakenly thought it was the finale (minus the reunion next week), but Bravo decided to slip in just one more episode for us, which is great since it’s been one of my favorite Below Deck seasons so far!
On tonight’s finale, Bobby Giancola manages to tick off the primary charter guest when he brings the other guests back from a shopping excursion hours late (delaying dinner until well past 9 p.m.) and then leaves two of guests behind while he returns to the boat with his Tinder love.
Lucky Tamra is staying at the Ritz where she has been pretending to live Heather Dubrow‘s life enjoying the beach, the view, the luxury, and the mother-daughter bonding time with Sophia. Tamra also indulged in some deep-fried Oreos good to know the Ritz serves county fair food!
This week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County seemed like a bridge episode, linking us from the crazy plate tossing of yesterday to the Sip n’ See snubbing of tomorrow. Perhaps more than in any other season, battle lines have been drawn between the ladies, and Shannon Beador says she has no plans of crossing them anytime soon – especially when it comes to Vicki Gunvalson. Her position this season: Speak no Vicki, See No Vicki, Hear No Vicki.
Shannon does at least have room in her heart for babies! She gushes about meeting Meghan Edmond’s daughter, Aspen, for the first time. “Tamra [Judge] and I haven’t seen Meghansince she had her baby so it was nice to finally reconnect with her at lunch. I don’t think I have met a happier baby than Aspen, she is absolutely precious!”
