Stassi Schroeder has made no secret that she was over all the plebeians and infants on Vanderpump Rules, but speaking out on her time on the show Stassi confirms, “This isn’t my life anymore” and she’s glad to be done with reality TV. Especially since she’s moved on to greener pastures, like a loving relationship with her boyfriend Patrick, which all began via a little stalking.
Stassi knew she was done at the reunion, which she describes as “the worst day of my life” after news broke that a solo sex tape she made had circulated around SUR and just barely avoided becoming a storyline thanks to the good graces of the benevolent Lisa Vanderpump.
Admitting she barely survived the brutal day, Stassi made a decision to officially abandon the toxic environment of SUR and reality TV. “I held it together the whole time during taping, and went home afterwards and cried for two hours and went to sleep at 6:00 at night.”
The reality TV viewer numbers are in and ready to be analyzed. Teen Mom OG saw its third increase in a row with 1.855 million tuning in this week. The mid-season finale of Dance Moms garnered 1.451 million viewers, bringing the season five average to 1.57 million viewers. For comparison’s sake, the season four finale attracted 1.619 million and the season average was 1.84 million.
Kourtney Kardashian is by-far the most ‘normal’ of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan – she’s also the most down-to-earth. The mother of three is also predominantly behind most of the Kardashians fashion ventures, particularly their new Kardashian Kids collection which is launching at Nordstroms. In a new interview Kourtney talks motherhood, welcoming a third baby, working with her famous family, and how all kids have their own style.
First of all, it’s important to know that fashion and materialism has always been a part of the Kardashian family values, Kourtney reminisces about playing dress-up in Kris Jenner‘s closet and how her mom has influenced her perspectives. “I remember playing in my mom’s closet with Kim as little girls—we had this game we played, I was Donna Karan and she was my assistant, and I was really bossy,” Kourtney says. “We would always hear my mom talk about designers, and she had all this designer vintage, but it wasn’t vintage at the time—a lot of Chanel—such great clothes, shoes, jewelry. We had so much fun playing in her closet. My daughter already tries on my shoes, and she plays with my makeup. It’s fun, but it brings out the girlier side in me knowing that I’m a role model for her.”
Holly Robinson Peete, of old school 21 Jump Street fame (yeah!) and husband & former quarterback Rodney Peete are getting their own docuseries (aka reality show) on OWN. The working titled production, For Peete’s Sake, will “follow the lives of husband and wife duo Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete as they juggle their careers with their family life,” according to blackcelebkids.com.
Why is OWN taking an interest in the Peete family, which includes the couples’ four children – twins RJ and Ryan Elizabeth (17), middle son Robinson (13), and the youngest, Roman (10) – and Holly’s widowed mother, Dolores? Well, according to OWN president Sheri Salata, “As longtime members of ‘The Oprah Show’ family, we’ve watched Holly and Rodney navigate successful careers in show business, a devoted marriage and a growing, love-filled family.” Salata adds, “This new series gives an entertaining and honest look at a modern family that just happens to live in the celebrity spotlight.” Salata also tweeted yesterday, “Team Peete is ready to roll!” after Holly had posted a photo on her Twitter account of her hubby and her hanging with the Lady Who Rules Us All, Oprah Winfrey.
Brandi asked Kristen if her co-stars have been supportive of her soon-to-be launched nail polish line, Pop. “Yes, some more than others, and you’ll have to see how the whole thing unfolds because it’s really interesting,” teased Kristen. “The people that you think will be these huge supporters end up not.”
Brandi said Kristen is more guarded this season. “I guess,” she said. “After a couple drinks, though, it all kind of goes away, and I definitely had some crazy verbiage this year.” This prompted Brandi to say she has cut back on her wine consumption. So, down from $1800 worth per month to, like, $1500?
“Every single thought is mine, word for word! I may not cook my own meals some times, but I certainly write my own thoughts,” LuAnn declares.
And Luann is pointing out the irony that the ghostwriter accusation is now on the other foot (pun intended there – I’ll be here all week folks!). “The idea that Carole, of all people, is accusing me of using a ‘ghostwriter’ is as laughable as it is pathetic,” Luann seethes. “It might seem out of character for me, as some would say, because I haven’t been this upset with a cast member since Ramona [Singer] was being a nightmare. (Back then, I wasn’t as engaged with social media as I am now.).”
Look! It’s an all new hot mess photo roundup to get you through this Friday afternoon! Brandi Glanville was honored with the Woman of Achievement award this week at a Mother’s Day luncheon thrown by the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies. Also in attendance at the event: Carlton Gebbia and her mother-in-law Gloria, and Nicole Murphy.
Toaster Ovens and Yummie Tummies and Nigerian Football Teams – Oh My!
Heather Thomsontouches on them all in her latest Bravo blog, claiming that she has Sonja Morgan’s best interests at heart despite what Sonja (and the viewers) might think. Heather starts by saying, “I’ve always tried to be on Team Sonja. And to contradict her recent blog, I don’t ever, have never, and will never stand on a soap box unless I am advocating for a charity or helping others.”
Although she might not have it out for Sonja, Heather does say she will not be burned twice when it comes to entering Sonja’s world of unicorns and rainbows. “I have been down Sonja ‘Sexy J’ Morgan’s rabbit hole before: spending valuable time, energy, and favors on her pursuits, unfortunately, to no end,” she says, adding that “I was simply not in the know that Sonja had sourced a group to back a fashion endeavor, hiring freelance consultants and a designer to pull a collection together. And I was surprised to learn from Bethenny [Frankel]that she had. I was interested to learn more about it and lend whatever I potentially could. But,‘The Countess’boomed in and, as the case often goes, things flew off the rails. And it’s frustrating.”
