Following her release, Shawn Portwood tweeted, "Amber is out and looking better than she ever has because she is clean of drugs and healthy. Time to start a new chapter. I love you, sis." Later that night, he added, "After spending the day with her, I know she will be OK."
Amber went from prison to a burger restaurant for lunch to her daughter Leah. Mom and daughter were reunited Monday night. Gary Shirley has full custody of Leah currently, but Amber hopes to obtain joint custody soon.
I guess if we have to live in a world where attention seekers are rewarded for bad behavior and outrageous shenanigans, I may as well be entertained by them, right? And I definitely find Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville to be, um, entertaining.
While Brandi's certainly not the reality star I'd want to hang out with on a regular basis (but should Theresa Caputo, Curtis Stone, orLisa Vanderpump feel so inclined…call me!), she is crass and sassy which are two of the characteristics I'm drawn to in friends. She isn't afraid to let it all hang out (literally…how could you forget this?) in the Twitterverse, her best-selling book, and now her online podcast aptly titled Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. Bravo breaks down her premiere episode where she shares several revelations ranging from taking a copycat Kim Kardashianbooty-bearing selfie to having high cholesterol from her diet.
Love was in the air–or something was, at least!–on last night's Preachers of L.A.,Deitrick Haddon was reveling in newlywed-dom, while Noel Jones tried to figure out what keeps him from being the marrying kind. Wayne Chaney was worried about how his marriage would be affected if he made his wife his second-in-command at church, and Ron Gibson? He was just as smooth as ever! I can't say I missedClarence McClendon (I didn't), but I sure missed a second week without Jay Heazlip! Let's get started, shall we?
Noel is traveling all over the world, and Loretta is manages to pin him down for the few days that he's in L.A. She wishes that he was around to spend more time with her, but she's happy to help him throw his annual Fourth of July party. Loretta gets uneasy when she hears that the guest list consists of the ladies who lunch and like to interrogate.
Speaking of shindigs, Wayne is preparing for a family barbeque complete with both he and Myesha's grandmothers…even though his granny turns up her nose at eating the feast out of the aluminum containers. She also wonders what Wayne's grandfather, who started his church, would think if he heard Wayne complaining about being pulled in so many different directions.
The focus of the premiere is Lilly's self-indulgent 30th birthday party. She's the party planner of course – nobody loves Lilly as much as Lilly loves Lilly – and she chooses to exclude MJ after she fails to RSVP on time. This decision does not sit well with the rest of the group. Reza's terribly heartbroken. Supposedly.
Speaking of Reza, he's me, me, me right out of the gate. Reza complains about his hair turning white and his waistline growing round. So what's a successful Persian realtor suffering a midlife crisis to do? Go Porsche shopping of course!
You know, I gotta hand it to NeNe Leakes she has learned from her mistakes and grown from them. Case in point, last season she gave Kenya Moore a chance but she has since seen the error of her ways and is henceforth intolerant of such "foolishness"! You and me both, Ms. Leakes!
