It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of the GTL. Sure, my gym is feeling inadequate when I only get 20% of my daily Fitbit steps while walking back and forth to the office copier with no other form of exercise. My tanning is of the spray variety, if at all…and that’s only for special occasions when orange is better than transparent. As for laundry, let’s not even go there. But I adore those kids of the Jersey Shore. I loved them when they were wasted fools making a mockery of everything Seaside Heights wanted to preserve, and I have enjoyed seeing them grow into actual normal(ish), successful adults.
That said, following Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’swalk down the aisle with Jionni LaValle (who recently lost his license thanks to a DUI) has been a lot of fun. Who doesn’t love to see a true friendship like Snooki and JWoww’s that was born of reality television. It’s a true rarity…like a unicorn, or a decent, handsome, rich guy who opens doors, pulls out chairs, and pays my student loans. That said, there were some guests missing from Snooki’s nuptials. I don’t really care about the whereabouts of Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, but where, oh where was my precious Vinny Guadagnino? Sidebar: is it weird that I have to look up the spelling of “notoriety” (I just did again…always want to put an “a” in it) any time I want to use it, but “Guadagnino” is ingrained in my own personal spelling bee?
Y’all, sometimes it just boggles my mind how much people seemingly change when they become reality stars. You can always spot the green newbie, innocent and wide-eyed, who seems almost terrified of the drama brought on by her veteran co-stars. Sometimes, these first-timers won’t compromise changing themselves to create craziness and become fan favorites or the one everyone loves to hate. Their desire to stick to their morals often makes them come across as boring, making them one-and-done in the reality television world. Real Housewives of Orange County’sLydia McLaughlin, anyone? Of course, then there are those who start out timid and almost goody-goody, but they quickly learn from their counterparts and become masters of their own reality destiny. You know I’m talking about Real Housewives of Atlanta’sPorsha Stewart!
Girlfriend started out as a pretty wallflower, but she’s taken pages out of the brazen NeNe Leakes’ and the kray-kray Krayonce Moore’s playbooks to become quite a reality vixen. She’s building a brand, y’all! She’s got a lingerie line. Heck, she even assaulted a cast mate at a reunion! Now, she may even have her own platform for finding her next sugar daddy. Porsha’s clearly figured out this game!
I always call it “wordless” but I can’t help but post a FEW words on these photos. I think Kim Kardashian forgot the rest of her outfit back at the hotel tonight as she stepped out for the ACRIA dinner in NYC.
Claudia Jordan is sharing her take on the Cynthia Bailey / NeNe Leakes friendship and it’s a doozy. NeNe will have plenty to say in response to this, guaranteed. These RH newbies are coming out with the verbal guns blazing from the get-go nowadays! No warming up period.
Claudia commented this week on a Real Housewives of Atlanta After Show episode on YouTube, comparing Cynthia to a battered wife when it comes to her former friendship with the “loud and overbearing” NeNe. Yikes! Read on, it gets worse.
Now both Kristen and Scheana exonerate themselves from involvement. Kritter says say Jax is lying. But of course! And Scheana says Kritter is lying. But of course!
In retrospect, Kristen says she should have “blocked” the information about Katie “motorboating” from Jax and Scheana, but you know – gossip, drama, scandal, camera time, attention: OMG Kristen neeeeeds it! “In hindsight, those two gossip queens probably teamed up to create the rumor together,” Kritter asserts, as she accuses Scheana of then “backpedaling” when she was caught in the middle of rumor-mongering.
Apparently cheating was as popular as Lunchables and Cheetos in the Calvert Household! In fact, we could just say they’re all a bunch of Cheat-Os, because now comes news that Jeremy Calvert was cheating on Leah Calvert too! Oops.
Jeremy and Leah are back and forth on whether or not to end their marriage of two years after Leah got roped up in a cheating scandal (and drug issues) with ex-boyfriend Robbie Kidd! However sources say Leah has actually been doing Jeremy a real favor by not revealing that he too had an affair and was recently caught texting the mistress!
Sources assert that the Teen Mom 2 star recently discovered Jeremy sending texts to a woman named Brittany Musick, whom he was cheating with, and that prompted Leah to contact Brittany on twitter!
Apollo Nida is a man scorned – which is amusing considering he did the scorning – and promises he will fight Phaedra Parks for money when she files for divorce!
Issuing what sounds like a threat or at the very least a warning, Apollo swears he will not allow Phaedra to leave him with nothing when their marriage legally ends. “I will not walk away empty-handed, considering all I’ve put into the marriage over the five years,” Apollo seethes.
All Apollo put in to the marriage? Let’s recap: the lies, the cheating, the breaking the law, the destroyingtheir family, embarrassing his wife and children, the lies about Kenya, and the fact that Phaedra could also be on the hook for his millions in restitution if they stay married? Oh yeah, he really put a lot into this marriage!
NeNe Leakeskept her thoughts on this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta short and sweet (with a tiny dash of salt). The reality star is fed up with the negative dinners with her co-stars and has some words of advice for a certain former friend.
NeNe starts off sharing her thoughts on these ridiculous dinner get-togethers and puts the liars and manipulators on blast. “Going into dinner with these ladies will never be a fun thing for me, and that probably will never change, but I’ve made a few changes of my own. I have come to a place in my life where I just don’t have the time or energy to entertain people who don’t like me or support me, people who hurt me and that pull energy instead of giving energy. Those that never compliment but always ridicule. Those that manipulate and lie. The people you know who are willing to turn on you for so called opportunities or the almighty dollar with no explanation! The people that want everyone to believe you’re the bad guy when in reality they are. The people that stab you in the back and watch you bleed with no sympathy.”
