Alexis Bellino is this season's comeback kid on Real Housewives of Orange County. Who would have thought?! Alexis candidly admitted that last season's drama led her to seek therapeutic help and whatever her therapist is doing (or prescribing) it seems to be working. She needs to be giving that phone number out liberally around the Bravo offices!
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Alexis confirms she did seriously consider leaving last season but felt she needed to set an example for her kids (and earn that OC paycheck!) by returning. Alexis also talks her relationships with the women and reacts to Tamra Barney's embarrassing display of hostessing at the CUT You To The Core Fitness opening!
Oh and guess what?! She made it through the entire interview without mentioning the b-word once. No not, b-i-t-c-h, but bullying! Duh!
Check out this week's blogs from Kari Wells, Quad, and Toya, and let us know what you think! The Queen Bee's blog is nowhere to be found. Color me not surprised.
Kari admits that she cannot believe what has transpired based solely on gossip, adding, "Most of the time, it is made-up or exaggerated, and I think we can all see the pain and repercussions spreading gossip can have on people and their families."
"After getting to know Toya, I find it very hard to believe that she would ever gossip about Lauren; she is a mother herself and she was also an adopted by her stepfather," Kari says. "Nonetheless, Mariah believes it, and I am deeply saddened for the pain that this is now causing her. Of course, as a mother, she would want to protect her child, but NOT listening to gossip may have been the best way to do just that, or at least confirming the truth before acting on it."
Oh, it's on! Last night's two hour Dance Moms finale pitted Apples against Abby Lee Miller in an epic battle of boys versus girls. There was drama, there were tears, and, of course, there was awesome dancing!
The ALDC is still in New York City for the competition. Maddie, Asia, Kendall, and Chloe all have solos, and Abby is focusing on those girls as opposed to the group number. Kelly wants to take Brooke to meet with a music producer while her daughter has some down time. Abby dismisses Brooke although she thinks it's quite a joke. Chloe is working on her number "My Obsession." Is she obsessed with winning? Dancing? What? Poor Chloe. The original Christi chastises Kristie 2.0 for not being more fired up about Asia being pulled from The View performance. Kristie claims that she and her daughter looked at The View number as any other audition. No big deal. That irks the other mothers to no end.
Kelly and Brooke are meeting with a music producer who is excited about the fact that Brooke's last single garnered 25,000+ downloads on iTunes. He decides to introduce her to a former Pussycat Doll. Emphasis on "former" or else she wouldn't be hanging out on the finale of Dance Moms. She gives Brooke some guidance on breathing as if you really have to pee. Is this how voice lessons work?
On last night's episode of Don't Be Tardy something I've long believed was confirmed. Kroy Biermann, like children of Victorian England, should be seen and not heard. The more he speaks, the more… just no.
In other occurrences Kim Zolciak demonstrated more awesome parenting and then got in a big fight with her husband over mirrors. She needs MORE MIRRORS everywhere so she can look at herself MORE TIMES. The naked photos dominating every wall aren't enough?
Things begin with Kim and KJ being cute. Ok, let me rephrase: KJ was being cute and Kim was rocking an In Living Color bandana. That was not cute. Kim tells us she knows nothing about football and since Kroy is going to the Super Bowl (in theory), she better learn the ins and outs of the game.
I'm pretty sure Kim already has the ins and outs covered which is how she ended up married, prenup-less, with two kids in less than three years. Girl knows the game very, very well! She by SheBroke better recognize!
Oh Bethenny Frankel – this is a very sad attempt at damage control. I'm sure she has her Frankelzombies out in full-force defending her actions, but just in case the message isn't coming across the soon-to-be-divorced former reality star is speaking out about ending her marriage to Jason Hoppy.
Wanna know the most surprising thing of all? She's pretty much blaming Jason for making the divorce hard. Start rolling your eyes now! "I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," Bethennywhines to People. "I wrote that entire [divorce] statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."
You know what that means…a certain be-wigged one will be holding down the fort for Bravo's Tuesday night line-up. Will Kim Zolciak Biermann be vying for a schedule change for Don't Be Tardy? Hear that? It's the sound of a hundred wigs crying…
Just so you know, the always fabulous Real Housewives of New Jersey preteen G-to-the-I-A may be tweeting away, but that doesn't mean that her mom Teresa Giudice isn't monitoring what her daughter is doing online. She wants to make sure that her daughter is LOLing in the appropriate manner…and that means not using any bad language, even in abbreviations (or 'breves as I like to call them).
Gia recently tweeted the above picture with the caption "Omg.. My mom played softball. #lmfao @Teresa_Giudice" Cute, right? Not to Tre, who quickly responded, "@TrueGia don't say "f"! It's lmao for you. Wait don't say "a" either. How about lmbo?"
