Lamar Odom finally broke his silence. Since the accusations of Lamar's secret life as a hard-core drug addict (and habitual cheater) came out in the press a few weeks back, Lamar has gone completely silent and has refused to defend himself nor admit the rumors. That was until his estranged father decided to chime in with his two cents about the situation.
His father was quoted this week calling Kris Jenner evil, among other things, and blaming the family for Lamar's troubles. Lamar took to Twitter for the first time since July to blast his father: "Won't continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit. He wasn't there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me."
Following a season of lackluster ratings, ridiculously transparent producer and editing manipulation, and a déjà vu storyline, Wendy challenged Andy about making changes to the formerly successful show.
Wendy straight up called out this season as "not the best." Andy agreed and admitted, "We need to make some adjustments." When Wendy suggested "new Housewives" and "no more Manzos" or Wakiles, Andy said, "alright, alright" but he seemed off-put and annoyed. I think he's also realizing this show is doomed without MAJOR shakeups!
Last night'sI Dream of NeNe was more therapy, drama, and famous friends ofNeNe Leakes. When it begins, the Neenster is reuniting with the Donald, and I'll be damned. They have the same hairstyle. Trump wants NeNe to judge the Miss USA pageant. After their mutual admiration club, Donald shares with NeNe that he's read that she's getting remarried to her ex-husband. She reveals that her first divorce from Greggwasn't amicable…in fact, it was hostile. Basically, Donald advises NeNe to get Gregg to sign the pre-nup or he's fired. She also tries to get Donald's advice on blending families, but of course, it all boils down to her getting an extra nice wedding gift from the Donald.
Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter Thomas has bonded with Gregg, and Gregg is looking to his new biffle for guidance as to how to blend his family. Luckily for Gregg, Peter has a lot of opinions given the fact he has five children that aren't with his current wife. Peter urges his friend to make sure that everyone gets along.
As we say in the South, bless his tiny, delusional, in need of anger management and a reality check, sweet heart. Kanye West is at it again, Yeez Louise y'all won't believe the things that are coming out of the tiny rapper's mouth of late. First he's the greatest. Second, while he thanks Michael Jackson for paving the way for his most highest celebritydom, Kanye has far surpassed the King of Pop. Oh, and he's still roughing up paparazzi (but more on that in a bit. The fun stuff first, right?).
Us Weekly has the skinny on what Kim Kardashian's love really thinks about himself. On Monday, 'Ye gave an hour long interview with Zane Lowe with BBC Radio where he revealed, among other things, that he is "the number one rock star on the planet." Yup, seems about right. Kanye surprises no one by asserting that his life's mission was to push the limits of our interpretations of music, fashion, art, and culture. I knew it all along. Kanye is not just a rapper. He's an icon. Again, bless it.
While he admits that "there would be no Kanye West if it wasn't for Michael Jackson," Kanye is also quick to remind us that he's surpassed any sort of fame that Michael Jackson knew.
This week, Mackenzie finds tumbling practice to be more exhausting than it used to be. Coach tries to put things into perspective for the young mom – she has the potential to cheer on a college level but she needs to be able to 1) practice on a that level while attending classes and taking care of Gannon and 2) pay for college. Mackenzie's banking on Josh McKee (and his already scrambled brains) on winning rodeos so she can be a cheerleader.
Next Katie discovers that Joey Maes overdrew their checking account, costing them $90 in bank fees, and she worries he's using their grocery money to buy drugs. Katie gets on Joey's case the second he walks through the door, as per usual, and he blows her off to play with Molli. Katie throws bank statements at Joey (and Molli) and they argue for the 300th time since the premiere.
Apparently while many of us struggle to pay rent, some of us struggle to find ways to spend our money. Oh to be a Real Housewife of Miami!
Lisa Hochstein found true love when she received her first Birkin and she's been on a path to reclaim that feeling ever since. In her embarrassingly gushing sollioquy espousing the glory that is Hermes last night she bounced up and down like a five-year-old in a candy store at the thought of amassing more of these glorious $20,000 creatures. They are, after all, so rare that every Housewife in every city owns like 9 of them. #Firkin
In a new blog, Fembot continues her Birkin lovefest. Does she think Hermes will pony up a free bag if she praises them enough? "Lea [Black]and I both love Birkins. She is a seasoned collector," Lisa begins, wishing upon wishes that she were Lea Black instead of upstart Lisa Hochstein.
"I know it sounds ridiculous to spend that kind of money on a handbag, but I like to look at them as an investment. They hold their value forever if you take good care of them," Lisa explains. How about looking at a college degree as an investment? "Although I have no intention of ever selling my Birkins, many times they are resold for a much higher price." Oh – well good to know. In fact, that's how she can get more. Screw the waiting list and offer to pay off some of the other Housewives debt in exchange for one of their old Birkins!
