I'll be the first to admit that I finally took a stand on my feelings for Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice after watching that horrid first installment of the reunion. Now I may be eating my words…just a bit. A very little bit. I still don't feel sorry for her, and I think I may keel over if I ever hear her utter the words "I was wrong" or "I lied." However, now I don't feel badly for any of them. They are all a bunch of fame whores as evidenced by the new Us Weekly cover story. You have to love that they're all wearing red. I guess they got Tre's devil memo!
You have to love the hypocrisy that comes with being a New Jersey housewife. One minute Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile are calling out Teresa for hawking her story on magazine cover after magazine cover (after magazine cover!), the next minute they are gracing the pages of Us Weekly (high brow…no In Touch for these gals!) and bashing their former friend. Eye roll.
In a five page spread, the women spill all the details of their fallout with Tre. Now, I don't doubt for one second that Teresa is a textbook narcissist, but how is moaning about her in a national publication going to change that? Are these ladies actually expecting her to have some sort of epiphany and change her ways? Doesn't anyone know how to take the high road anymore? Geez. Build a bridge, people!
The Kardashians are environmentally friendly, ya'll. They recycle clothes! And not even just last season's clothes, but we're talking dresses from four years ago! Shahs of Sunset star GG would be mortified, but we applaud them.
Last week Kourtney Kardashian was spotted filming in Miami, sporting this green and blue Diane Von Furstenberg dress as she boarded a boat with Scott Disick. She discovered that her sister Kim had worn the same dress back in 2008 on the red carpet for a movie premiere.
Kourtney shared on her blog, "I had no clue Kim had worn this Diane Von Furstenberg dress before! I know this looked familiar." She gave her sister props for the way she wore it first, "I love how Kim belted her dress. It’s fun to see how we both take the same dress and make it look SO different!"
Take our poll below! Who wore it best: Kim or Kourt?
Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj was "miraculously" caught on tape screaming at Mariah Carey during an American Idol audition, and the tape "somehow" ended up in TMZ's possession. Shocker.
On the video, Nicki screamed, “I told them, I’m not f***ing putting up with her f***ing highness over there.” Apparently, Nicki is tired of Mariah's self-involved attitude. TMZ's sources have said, "She [Mariah] keeps bringing up how many records she's sold, name dropping people she's worked with, how many tours she's done, and how many Grammys or awards she's won. Nicki is tired of it."
Also, Nicki has maintained… Mariah isn't innocent. Insiders have backed up Nicki's claim. Reportedly, Nicki walked away from the audition just before the outburst because Mariah was constantly talking down to her. As soon as Nicki returned, Mariah allegedly called her a bitch… cue the "secret" video camera… Nicki lost her temper.
"It was intense,"Ryan Seacrest said. Early reports even claimed Nicki made a death threat against Mariah. Putting that rumor to rest, Nigel Lythgoeinsisted, "The statement [that Nicki made a death threat] is absolute rubbish. It's absolutely not true in any way, shape, or form."
Kate Gosselin has been desperate for fame and attention ever since her reality show Kate Plus 8 was canceled. Well, now she's got it!
Recently Kate has been the subject of an unsavory tell-all book accusing Kate of child abuse among other damning things. Amazon was forced to pull the book after lawyers for Kate insists it is filled with invalidated, untrue information – and information which has been obtained from illegal means.
Author Robert Hoffman disputes those claims, insisting the material for Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World was procured legally and with thorough investigation. Robert claims he interviewed dozens of people connected with Kate and found her computer hard drive in the trash.
Well now sources are alleging that Robert, who happens to be friends with Jon Gosselin, got all his information from one source – and once source only: Jon!
Um, we've got a Situation here. Man, typing that never gets old! Just in time for tonight's two hour Jersey Shore season premiere, news is breaking all over the place that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has fallen off the wagon. Sitch entertained us with his abs in earlier season, but as the guidettes and juiceheads gained international notoriety, he seemed to have difficulty handling the fame. In recent seasons, it was obvious that he didn't just love the booze.
I don't think anyone was shocked when Mike entered rehab for prescription pill addiction. It's going to be an interesting final season with the two biggest partiers out of commission due to Snooki's pregnancy and Mike's sobriety, although I am thrilled for both of them. However, now that Lorenzo has arrived and the show has seen it's last fist pump, will the Situation be able to maintain?
Sometimes, I wish I could say that the housewives were seasonal…like the olden days TGIF on ABC. You have a season, you move on to reruns, lather, rinse, repeat. Of course, Bravo and Andy Cohen have made sure that there are housewives for the viewers all year long. No hiatus. No break. All housewives, all the time. I can complain about it knowing that I'd be even more upset if it wasn't this way.
So let's commence…the Real Housewives of New York had their finale this week, which means we are going to be subjected to reunion upon reunion (although not upon THIRD reunion, as they haven't quite reached RHONJ status yet). Let's check in with my beloved drama-free New York (non) Housewife to see what she has to say about her freshman season with the Cramona. Ladies and gentlemen, Carole Radziwill….
My new, most favorite housewife ever in the history of housewives, Carole is dishing on her first foray into the drama. Now I realize that not everyone is a Carole fan. To that, I say, WHY NOT!?!? She is drama-free, full of class, and calls it like she sees it. I could only wish more women in this franchise came from the Carole school of thought. Truth be told, I want her to put on a bra and be my best friend. And we so would be.
