Y’all know I love my trashy, hair-pulling, scotch swilling, spandex wearing, bartender STD spreading, limo riding, funeral home owning, Hermes wearing, polygamous, tax evading reality stars as much as the next person (okay, more…much more), but it’s not my favorite reality genre. Weird, right? Sometimes, I don’t want drama. I want food porn, and if it happens to come with a side of Curtis Stone, so be it.
Top Chef is my all time favorite Bravo creation. Give me Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, an insane Quick Fire, and throw in Hugh Acheson’s eyebrows every now and again, and I am one happy gal. Even with twelve seasons under its belt, the franchise always manages to delight with colorful characters and creative challenges that leave me wishing I could prepare uni and sweetbreads as part of my daily diet.
Well, it’s no Bound 2, and for that I am very, very thankful! Kanye West is premiering a new video, and instead of riding a motorcycle with his naked wife Kim Kardashian, he’s walking through a field with precious daughter North. The father-daughter duo is even dressed alike in Kimye regulation black and blah. His latest single “Only One” is a tribute to his daughter and his late mother Donda, and the video is directed by Spike Jones.
The song is a collaboration with the great Sir Paul McCartney. I’ve still not gotten over that whole Twitter situation where some teens saw a picture of Kanye and the iconic Beatles star together and wondered who was the old man hanging out with Yeezy. Kids today. That was a joke, right?
She starts off apologizing – sort of – for being so rude to Eileen Davidson about her home’s decor. “I really do think I should apologize to Eileen and Vince for disrespecting your home. I should have taken a page from the rest of the women and said one thing to their faces and a completely different thing behind their backs. Apparently that is what “classy” women do.”
We love reality TV girl drama and a good cheating scandal, judging by this week’s viewer numbers for our favorite shows! This week Love & Hip Hop, Vanderpump Rules, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were at season high numbers! RHOBH hit 2 million viewers for the first time this season! Please don’t tell Brandi, you know she’ll take credit for that – and want a raise next season!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been all over the board this season, but it saw a small uptick in fans tuning in this past Sunday for the #TeamFun road trip and to watch Todd Tucker give himself a happy ending. Pass the eye bleach, please.
In sort of shocking news, 1.7 million people tuned in to watch Kate Gosselin and her crew on Kate Plus 8. And then 6.3 million tuned in to watch her get fired onCelebrity Apprentice.
Take a look below to see how your shows are doing.
For some odd reason Ariana Madix‘s blog isn’t posted on Bravo. Is it because in it the Vanderpump Rules star explains what really went on between Tom Sandoval and “Miami Girl” Annemarie Kunkel?
Tom was a guest on WWHL last Monday, where he proclaimed Bravo omitted much of the Miami story and didn’t give the behind-the-scenes details, Andy Cohen didn’t deny anything Tom said, and according to Ariana there were many, many things viewers weren’t privy too! Of course, the couple understands Bravo has a story to tell, and can’t include everything, but that doesn’t mean she has to keep quiet about it!
Thankfully Ariana wrote a very illuminating blog which she posted to her Tumblr where she snarks at Lisa Vanderpump, explains what we missed, and throws Kristen Doute some serious shade!
Lisa Rinna made some bold statements following the poker game disaster on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lisa called Brandi Glanville a drunk, adding, “Brandi needs to put herself into rehab. There’s alcoholism raging like crazy. Women do not behave like that unless they are inebriated or something else is going on.” Finally someone who speaks the truth!
Lisa feels strongly about who is responsible for the drama – and it is not Kyle Richards. “I’d like to note that Kyle wasn’t the one to create any of this drama. It was Kim [Richards] that chose to walk back in the house after Brandi had escorted her outside and told her NOT to go back in. There was a lot of alcohol and God knows what other drugs influencing a lot of the behaviors, so no matter what, the outcome wasn’t going to be a good one. While I have compassion and empathy for these women and what I see playing out in front of me, there seems to be a lot of blame that both Kim and Brandi are trying to place on Kyle, and in my opinion they aren’t accepting the consequences from their behavior.” Brandi will never admit blame. For anything.
“In Brandi‘s last blog she said she came to our poker party and was so hungry because it was dinner time and we had no food – aww – I guess she has to blame someone for her actions,” snarked Eileen. “But honestly, folks? It wasn’t EXACTLY dinner time. It was between 8:30 and 9:00 PM. And it wasn’t a DINNER party. It was a POKER party. A DINNER party is where you sit down at a table and have dinner. A poker party is where you sit down at a table and play poker. And even so, we had hors d’oeuvres, such as those ‘little pancakes that are for children‘ that are usually known as blinis.” HAHA!!
