Chris Manzo and his brotherAlbie are expanding their business once again. The Manzo boys' partnership with restaurateurs Michael Sinensky and Sean McGarr of Funbars.com must be doing well with Little Town New Jersey because they are set to work with them on a new venture: the Victory Sports Bar and Club.
Chris and Albie's new bar will be a "Vegas style" sports bar at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, according to Us Weekly. The Victory bar is set to open in just a few weeks and then in April they plan to open a rooftop space, "Victory Terrace", which will have views of the city and table service. It's no bikini car wash, but it sounds like a winner.
After suffering from a long illness, Scott Disick's mom Bonnie Disick passed away at the age of 63.
The Kardashian family kept the news quiet, (for the first time in history). Scott's mom died on October 28th and Kourtney and Scott flew to NY for the funeral on October 30th. Scott was an only child and reportedly was a very close to his parents.
I find it odd that they will share every teeny tiny detail of their lives, but when something "real real" happens, they keep it hush hush. Maybe it shows that there are some pieces of Scott's life that he keeps off limits from mama Kris' exploitations in the media?
Andy Cohen better watch out because Bethenny's talk show is starting to feel like a daytime version of Watch What Happens Live! The Real Housewives have been a staple on Bethenny's special guest list lately and shows no sign of slowing down.
Kandi and Kenya have been promoting the show together lately, so Bethenny asked if they were paired together for a reason. Kandi shared, "we can be friendly together and Kenya can't be friendly with everyone on our show, so they put her with me."
Bethenny tells Kenya that she's polarizing (and that she can relate), "You're polarizing: people love you or they hate you, not unlike myself". Kenya explains, "I am extremely emotional, I'm reactionary and I'm just real. so I have natural reactions. If someone sets me off I can be a firecracker but only when I'm lit."
Yeezy is innocent, y'all. Well, maybe not innocent technically, but not guilty…at least according to him. Remember when the tiny rapper punched a member of the paparazzi in July while having his picture snapped at LAX? Well, the photographer Daniel Ramos finally had his day in court yesterday. How did that go? Let's just say that Kanye West may have interrupted his Honor to tell him that Judge Mathis is the best damn judge…
Okay, that totally didn't happen, but probably only because Kanye wasn't present in court. But if it did, Kanye would be correct!
And Vanderfabulous is back with a vengeance! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Lisa Vanderpump is tired of being accused of being the secret mouthpiece of the 'loids, and can you blame her? If I had to drink every time Kyle Richards insinuated that Lisa's smiling joke delivery was really the most vicious insult ever, I would've passed out before the first episode was even half over!
In her Bravo blog this week, Lisa addresses the tabloid rumors that follow the ladies of Bravo to no end while hinting that she should have been more in tune to how concerned Kyle was about Yolonda Foster's alleged lie. She even manages to get in a few very veiled digs at Splits too, which I absolutely love. Is she throwing shade? It's so subtle I can't tell! Lisa begins with Kyle's Chamber of Commerce party, writing, "Kyle had asked me to cater an event for her. It isn't something we often do — to take our chef away from the restaurant. Transporting the food and staff is just too complicated to ever be worthwhile. While I am there, Kyle brings up the fact that there have been stories created about her being pregnant. I also mentioned that I had seen the articles about Mauricio cheating. I would prefer face-to-face to acknowledge them, and then in the same breath ridicule the constant nonsense that is often in these tabloids.
Lilly acknowledged the party was a bit excessive. "But so what? I didn't ask anyone to pay for it or throw it for me. I did it by myself, for myself." She added, instead of dwelling on the fact that she's 30 and single, "I decided to have an over-the-top, silly prom-themed celebration for the bright future to come."
Lilly said she had a great time – at least someone did! – despite all the drama caused by her Shahs of Sunset co-stars. Not by her mind you. Them. And maybe Bravo. But definitely not her. She's prom queen perfect.
Well this news makes the wino in my incredibly happy, happy, happy! You know, usually I get a little tired of reality stars just haphazardly slapping their name on any product that will make money, but I think I'd buy denture cream or incontinence pads or even (gag!) mayonnaise if the Robertsons were selling it! That isn't to say that the Duck Dynasty crew will endorse any old thing. They clearly have a clear vision of their brand. However, their newest venture is going to become a staple at my house without a doubt!
Willie Robertson has just announced that Duck Commander Wines will hit stores this month. I. Cannot. Wait. See, I knew it wasn't just a scripted plot line when Willie decided he wanted to get more into wine and art a few seasons ago. I'm sure the varietals will be perfect for the dining room to the deer stand! Feel free to call me, Willie, if you'd like to use that tagline!
Aaaaahhhh Kyle Richards. Good ole' Splits, she obviously takes the lessons of Mean Girls' head bitchtress Regina George as gospel because she's starting off this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on the wrong Louboutin-clad foot!
Kyle admits that things with Lisa Vanderpump were rocky and she was anxious to once again try to work past their issues – until Lisa's Louboutin clad-food crossed the line! Lisa and Kyle had "not spoken since the Reunion last year" when they met in her kitchen to discuss the most illustrious parties to end all illustrious amazing parties: the Chamber of Commerce fete! All hail the great excitement capitulators in grey suits and one Kyle clad in a too-tight bumblebee dress!
"The accusations hurled at Mauricio were so offensive and calculated that there really wasn't anything to say. I said how I felt at the reunion and left it at that," Kyleexplains in her Bravo Blog.
"We have all had lies printed about us and we all know that when you are on a reality show and putting your lives out there this can happen. But we also know that the last thing we would want to do is bring it up to give these lies a platform and make us relive this again in six months — which is what I am having to do now."
