Uh-oh… those hoping to see delusional C-list celebrities trying to revive their careers while vying for the ‘prestigious’ title of Celebrity Apprentice will have to focus all of their attentions on one delusional celeb: Donald Trump.
Sources reveal that while the conservative right-wing Donald focuses on a potential White House bid, that season 15 of Celebrity Apprentice is on hold.
Despite record ratings last season, which prompted the show to be renewed before that season finished airing, insiders for Mr. Trump say NBC is temporarily delaying production because it’s apparently a conflict of interest regarding the presidential run.
After a fairly short blog last week, the OG of the OC is back with a master’s thesis to give us her take on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, and her rebuttal ofTamra Judge’sblog accusations last week. Vicki Gunvalson begins by addressing Tamra’s claims that Vicki hadn’t reached out to her upon hearing of Brooks Ayers‘ cancer diagnosis. Vicki clarifies, ” I did speak to Tamra after Brooks’ diagnosis. She initially found out from an interview Brooks and I did after he was re-diagnosed with his cancer in October 2014. Tamra and I ended up talking on the phone after that was online, and I told her I was sad and scared and was apprehensive on filming season 10 with Brooks being sick. I told her I ‘didn’t want to be Gretchen’ and was reflecting back when she was filming with her fiancé Jeff who ended up dying while she was on RHOC.”
Vicki also claims, “Tamra was very supportive on the call and said ‘he’ll be fine, you got this and if there was anything we needed to let her know’. So for her to post in her blog that we never spoke is not true.” Also not true is Tamra’s claim that Terry Dubrow never reached out to Brooks. Vicki wonders, “I mean how would Tamra know if Terry and Brooks texted, so I don’t know why she said that.”
Kim Kardashian of the future is coming to us. No, this isn’t a sci-fi Star Trek version of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, although Kim’s outfits often resemble it. In order to help herself grow and learn, Kim has publicly (of course) written a letter to her future self about what she hopes to have accomplished and learned.
Using her special marbleized computer (no doubt created from marble salvaged from abandoned guests’ seats at her wedding), in a letter written for Glamour, Kim addresses her 2025, 44-year-old self. Dear Kim, are you there, it’s me Kim. OMG – you’re like OLD now.
Predictably, Kim’s first thought is about her body and appearance. Seriously. It’s the second sentence after Dear Kim… “When it comes to how you feel about your body, remember to be kind to yourself and enjoy how you look now, because you’re not getting any younger,” Kim instructs future Kim, presumably only more vain and more shallow.
Bethenny invited a select group of ladies she likes to decorate cupcakes. Sponsored by Skinnygirl. Not to be outdone – or out boozed, rather – Ramona Singer yanks a bottle of pinot and wine glasses out of her purse. “Who carries wine around in their purse,” Bethenny snaps, caustically shoving the newest Skinnygirl beverage – replete with Skinnygirl glass – in Ramona’s hand. Bethenny should just get a food cart at this point – she can drive it everywhere! Hell, our little homeless one can even live out of it!
Over cupcakes Sonja Morganannounces she is about to pay off off her bankruptcy judgement and wants to celebrate by spending money again. That’s um… that’s really learning from your mistakes! First order of spending into bankruptcy 2.0 is taking a trip to Turks and Caicos.
Kristen took to her blog to blast Ramona Singer for attacking her when she tried to ask Bethenny about the scheduling issue for their trip. “Ramona is always just out to get me. So because Bethenny is going through a divorce, I am not supposed to ask her about the trip? I should wait and hear about it later through the grapevine? NO! Ramona, you don’t make the rules. I do what I want, and she needs to back the F up. I am so over Ramona and her opinions. She walks right into Lu’s event and immediately criticizes and attacks me about NOTHING. Whatever, nice comeback…“I’m dumb”… ohhh, haven’t heard that one before. She just rambles and rambles and rambles and stirs the sh– pot.”
First, I need to offer my sincerest apologies for missing last week’s Dance Moms premiere recap, but you’ll have to take that up with Mother Nature and her nasty thunderstorms and ridiculously long (and hot and oh so muggy!) power outages. Second, did we really miss much? Abby Lee Miller, true to fashion, flaked on practice and was extra nasty to over compensate for her evident insecurities caused by relocating to Los Angeles. Jill discovered once again that no matter how much bum she kisses, Kendall will never be Abby’s favorite. Basically, Abby was mean, yada yada yada, Nia was discounted, Holly was fuming, Jill was confused as to what exactly she needs to do to cement Kendall in Abby’s good graces, and Maddie was revered. A recap in one paragraph…who knew my wordy self was capable of such a thing?
It’s the second week in LA for the ALDC (this time around, at least), and the moms are still harping on Abby’s erratic behavior. Why anyone is still surprised by her antics is beyond me! The moms are surprised that Abby is in attendance at rehearsal (ehh, she’s “slightly” there), and Abby takes no time building up Maddie and tearing down Nia who doesn’t back down to her teacher. At. All. Go Nia! Of course, Nia ends up on the bottom of the pyramid followed by JoJo for timing errors. Shockingly, Maddie rounds out the bottom rung for not standing out in the group routine. MacKenzie is third for taking direction well, and Kendall is runner up to Kalani’s top spot on the pyramid. Kendall didn’t perform last week, but her video premiered which garnered her a higher spot. Kalani reigns supreme for her exceptional solo. So she forgot a few eight-counts…she improvised like a champ. Jill interrupts to say that a family commitment will keep Kendall from performing this week, but Kendall promises she’ll still be at rehearsals. Abby’s eye rolls say it all.
On last night’s Secrets and Wives, the ladies decide to drag their sorry, hungover butts to an exercise class the morning after partying in Mantauk, where all is not going well among the delusional divorcees of Long Island. Gail Greenberg is leading the boot camp in her all new young person gear. What she’s asking this workout gear to do cannot be done, i.e. turn back the clock like 30 years. Susan Doneson shows up in black lipstick and raccoon eyes ready to feel the burn, but first she must dish to Cori Goldfarb about how she feels attacked by Liza Sandlerand Andi Black at last night’s dinner. Susan has no sh*ts to give about Liza losing her house to a messy divorce. “You’re 47 years old, aren’t you bored?” she wonders about Liza.
Back in LI, Amy Millerdiscovers her son Max has traffic tickets piling up, but Max brushes her off like dust, just like every other man in her life. Max also makes the executive decision to bring a new dog into her home. You know, because he’s a responsible young man who lives with his mom, doesn’t pay parking tickets, dresses like a bunny, and can’t do laundry. Amy blames Max’s distracting behavior for getting in the way of her relationship with Arthur. I blame Max for making me sigh deep, sorrowful sighs over the state of entitled 20-something manboys everywhere. (Seriously, can we not round them all up and set them adrift until they’re house trained?) Amy fears that Max will turn out just like her ex-husband, Max’s father, who…lives with his mom and can’t do laundry. So, yup.
Bethenny had some fun times in tonight’s episode but was brought to tears once again at the mention of her visitation situation. She promises in her blog that this is the last tear she sheds this season. Pinky swear. “Well it isn’t an episode if I’m not crying, so I was true to form here. Thankfully this is the last tear of mine this season. I’m sure you’re not shedding a tear about that.”
