So let's talk about what happened. Andy Cohen has obviously been watching a lot of old episodes of 20/20 and he put on his hard-hitting interviewer costume to ask all the really deep questions we've been obsessively tweeting him for seasons. A sign of end times? Also everyone behaved like an adult for the most part. Probably because three-fourths of the people on that stage aren't coming back next season and had nothing to lose or gain. I personally enjoy Jacqueline Laurita much better when her sequins are flying out of her seat and shimmering with rage.
Was Kathy Wakile even there? I wouldn't have even noticed her except she was rocking a low-rent version of Melissa Gorga's blackout eyes that she was sporting all season. It was so much black she looked like a panda bear. Speaking of pandas, since the government shutdown I can't watch the baby panda cam on the National Zoo website. Get it together federal government! Get it together Kathy's makeup team!
Caroline wrote, "think I'm going to make this short and sweet, because to put all my thoughts into a single blog would take forever and quite possibly turn the blog into a novel, so here goes: I have made the decision to leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey."
Case in point? Rosie has been tapped to co-host the red carpet pre-show for the American Music Awards with none other than Lance Bass on November 24th. At last week's nominations ceremony, Rosie put in her two cents about the mounting legal woes faced by Teresa Giudice and husband (and Rosie sidekick) Juicy.
Bigger is always better, right? We all know that is the case with Mob Wive'sBig Ang! Now, the over-the-top Ang is following the lead of many reality stars before her. That's right–Big Ang has some big news of the alcoholic variety!
The Drunken Monkey owner has come out with her own line of vino. Ang's first offering treats us to a chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and prosecco. Mob Wives creator Jennifer Graziano recently tweeted a picture of wine line, sharing, "They're here!!!! Everyone stay tuned for info on where to buy!! @biggangVH1 @ManiacManagemnt."
This has been a wild, sometimes repetitive, and completely drama-filled season for the Housewives. We've seen (or at least read about) touching moments, cheating rumors, friendship rekindling, and epic brawls (but sadly only heard second hand accounts of flying sinks). We've also had a lot of off-screen drama, with the most scandalous being Teresa and Joe'sfederal indictment and the civil lawsuit brought on by the Posche 2 fight and topped off with a little book controversy.
What will season 6 bring? Andy Cohen admits that the show needs an overhaul, but who knows what that means in Andy's world. Well, let's get through season 5 first and then we'll tackle season six and all of its casting rumors!
Bethenny believed the show would catapult her out of the reality television genre and give her the opportunity to connect one-on-one with her fans. Unfortunately "fans" aren't tuning in. And she's being slaughtered in the ratings by Queen Latifah, who surprisingly turned out to be her biggest talk show rival.
"Bethenny is livid about Queen Latifah beating her – she can't believe this is happening," a source told Star Magazine (print edition). Indeed Bethenny's ratings have been slipping. Bethenny's show is averaging a .9 Nielsen rating while Queen Latifah is nabbing a healthy 1.4.
