She’s bringing Uptown a whole new Smackdown! In her Bravo blog, Dorinda Medley gives us her take on this week’s Real Housewives of New York, covering the gamut of poor housewifery dinner behavior, not-so-sneaky Kmart digs, and awkward therapy sessions. Dorinda begins by revisiting the dinner conversation she had with Ramona Singer about divorce: “Fireplace and vodka…that cures everything. I knew we needed a little drink to warm up to the divorce chat. And like I’ve always said about divorce, it’s a process. There is no one meeting or one decision and certainly not one conclusion. It’s the dismantling of a long, loving relationship that involves many years and a beautiful child, so it has to be handled with caution, respect, and grace…if possible.” She adds that “Ramona seems to be on track, her confidence is booming, and she seems ready for the next step. The fact that Mario and Avery are even speaking, let alone are on good terms, makes me so incredibly happy. Avery’s a great girl, and quite frankly, Mario’s always been a great father. What happens with Ramona and Mario does not and should not ever change that fact.”
When it comes her very polarizing main squeeze, John, Dorinda says she knew bringing him up at dinner with Ramona would “get a reaction out of her,” but as “Bethenny [Frankel] has said before, ‘The heart wants what the hearts wants,’ and I want John, so guess what folks—I get to have John. He makes me happy, simple as that.” But it’s not all praise for Bethenny as Dorinda snipes, “Oh! That therapy scene with Bethenny…how exhausting, right? I feel like we’ve been living that confrontation with her stepfather for the past month. I mean, therapy can be exhausting, sure, but enough already! That damn can of worms just needs to be avoided at this point.” Although she calls Bethenny “brave” for exposing her vulnerability in front of the cameras, Dorinda admits, “It’s made me tense watching it all unfold, and I so wanted to just make it go away.”
Wanna know what happens when two foul-mouthed egotistical blondes with a vendetta team-up? You’re about to find out! Stassi Schroeder was the most recent guest on Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. And while it wasn’t quite pimps, hoes, and pornos levels of raunchy, it was far from genteel girl talk!
Brandi begins by giving her feedback on the joys of Vanderpump Rules, “The guys, you can all kind of group them together because they’re all kind of the same person – I think half of them are gay. They’re all on drugs – or half of them are. They’re manginas – not in a good way.” But Brandi actually praises the show as “just great to watch!” Which makes it quite the departure from the reality show Brandi is on, in which at least one person is high on drugs, and at least two people make it not great to watch. I won’t name, names…
Speaking of which, Brandi does take a moment to talk Kim Richards. “Everyone is calling me – TMZ – everyone under the sun. I don’t know anything. We talked before she left and she was in a good place. She’s not returning my texts – which she always does. It’s just frustrating. I don’t want anything bad to happen to her because she has a really good heart at the end of the day.”
Since her Jersey Shore days, Snookihas built herself quite an empire and (wisely) didn’t put all of her eggs in the “reality star” basket. She’s left her party days behind her and swapped out her Shore house for this house, and is raising two adorable kids with her husband. Nicole is writing books, getting crafty, running her clothing and accessory lines, selling her perfumes, slippers and a million other products and managing other side gigs. The never-out-of-energy star announced this week that she has written her fifth book!
Snooki shared on Instagram that her newest book, “Strong is the New Sexy: A Kickass Memoir” will hit shelves in October. The fitness buff is going to talk about her road to living a positive and healthy life and share advice on what other women can do to be strong and positive. She shared a photo of the book cover, “So excited for my new book!!! Strong is the new sexy- how to live a positive life!”
Evelyn Lozada is returning to reality TV – I’m sure you’ve missed her. The former Basketball Wives star has a whole new life – a new fiancé, a new son, a new city, a newly grown-up daughter, and with that comes a whole new reality show! ‘Livin Lozada’ will premiere on the OWN Network July 11th to follow Evelyn and her daughter Shaniece Hairston as the navigate their rapidly changing lives.
After divorcing Chad Johnson a month after their fairytale wedding because of cheating and domestic violence, and losing their VH1 spinoff, Evelyn briefly retired from reality TV, but she has returned stronger! Evelyn is now engaged to MLB player Carl Crawford, has moved to LA, and is raising one-year-old son Leo, all while her daughter Shaniece graduated, turned 21, embarked upon a modeling career, and decided to launch a swimsuit collection.
Lifestyles of the trashy and famewhory! Jenelle Evans turned herself into Myrtle Beach Police yesterday, but she wasn’t alone – Teen Mom 2 cameras were there to capture the whole memorable moment on tape. Oh goody – home videos for the whole family to reminisce over someday.
Jenelle had an outstanding warrant related to an assault against her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith and decided to surrender. Jenelle made sure to get done up for her (6th? 7th? 8th??) mugshot, featured above, and was released Thursday afternoon after South Carolina police processed her criminal domestic violence charges, which included allegations that Jenelle kicked, punched, scratched, and tried to choke Nathan.
In today’s ULTIMATE IRONY, the woman who encouraged her sixteen-year-old daughter to marry a 50-year-old, is now disappointed by the trajectory of her career. Krista Keller has quit managing her daughter Courtney Stodden‘s career in light of Courtney’s sex tape release because, she’s disappointed. Yes, Courtney’s momager has resigned over “serious creative differences.” Apparently Krista would have never released a sex tape – even for the animals, even when threatened by best friends…
Krista explains that Courtney has become “difficult to work with” because of otherpeople interfering in the direction of Courtney’s career. “I love her very much and I decided to step down due to creative differences,” she explains. “I think you can figure out why,” Krista sniffed.
Mariah Carey is keeping it real in a recent interview with Australian KIIS FM hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday. Real nasty, that is! When asked about her time as a judge on American Idol, Mariah bluntly described the show as “so boring and so fake.”As a judge on season 12 of the show along with Randy Jackson, Keith Urban and (on-screen nemesis!) Nicki Minaj, Mariah says she “felt forced to make up stuff about the contestants and their performance to keep the show going,” according to Page Six.
Adding a halfhearted apology before another insult, Mariah added, “I’m sorry, I just think it’s … when I say it’s fake … I mean like you have to make up things to say about people.” Claiming that, at times, the judges don’t have a whole lot to say about the performers, she explains, “Half the time the performances are good, you just be like ‘it was good’ and you feel like ending it there: ‘You were really good.’”
