Apparently houses built by boobs are like way, way more important than historic homes designed by famous architects! Lisa Hochstein and her husband Dr. Lenny Hochstein recently purchased a home on Star Island, and that home is part of Miami's history.
They couple has plans to completely tear down the home to make way for a new, over-the-top, ode to plastic surgery mansion in its place. There's only one problem… the home the Real Housewives of Miami star purchased was actually designed in 1925 by Walter DeGarmo, a famous Miami architect credited with the Mediterranean Revival-style that helped define the city.
Which means the Hochstein's home is considered something of a historic landmark.
Local historical preservation activists and city planning boards have taken issue with the Hochstein's plan to destroy a beautiful representation of historic Miami Beach. Residents have since started a petition to bar Lisa and Lenny from destroying the home!
Well, nothing has changed, A&E and Dave are still at war. He only appeared on the show last night because it was taped before the network locked him out of production. Locked! Out!
Love him or hate him,Dave Hester is arguably the show's biggest star. However, according to an inside source, the ratings for the show have declined and it is no longer A&E's top priority. "Inside the network, the feeling is 'we're going to tape this show with or without you,'" a source told RadarOnline.
"The network and production company has the power," the source explained. "The rest of the cast is working without having their contract issues fully worked out … but Hester simply is not allowed to tape, as he has no offer."
In the beginning there was a housewives franchise for any given night of the week, and then, there was Watch What Happens Live. I must admit I was beside myself when Andy Cohen decided to make his fete a nightly deal. I guess I overestimated the amount of guests who would entertain me in the clubhouse. I don't care about has-beens or random current reality stars that know nothing of all things Bravo. I want dish and dirt and a worthy jackhole.
Ask and ye shall receive. My Monday night WWHL was everything I like to see happening in the clubhouse. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Taylor Armstrong was present to clear up any rumors that she needed and intervention, and, I'll be honest, as much as I dislike her on the show, she was pretty funny and self-depreciating with ol' Andy. Joining her was The Hills'Kristin Cavalarri who looked fabulous after just having a baby boy. MTV's resident bitch was likeable and (dare I say it?) hilarious during her debut night in the clubhouse.
Rumor has it that former BacheloretteEmily Maynard only cares about one thing these days – being famous. Shocker! Ugh. I am sooo over Emily.
ABC reportedly wants Emily to be the Bachelorette again; however, it sounds like Princess Emily's sole focus right now is landing her own talk show. And Emily allegedly plans to move from Charlotte to Los Angeles to better her chances of landing such a gig. Obviously, if Emily moves away from Charlotte, so does Emily's daughter Ricki.
Understandably, Ricki's grandparents (parents of Emily's late finance Ricky Hendrick) are not too happy about Emily's desire to move their granddaughter across the country. According to RadarOnline, this moving business has caused major stress within the family, as the Hendricks feel as if Emily puts "her thirst for fame" ahead ofRicki's well-being.
Radar's source claimed, "Rick, Linda, and Emily do not speak at all now, aside from having to make arrangements regarding Ricki. They are majorly feuding and I don't see a resolution being reached anytime soon."
Some might say it's the end of an era. I'd say that. RIP camo hat. I guess much like Leah Messer being replaced in Corey Simms' life of wedded bliss, his hat must also be replaced. In this case, he has replaced both Leah and the hat with a more conservative, less redneck version…although if you look closely at both the new fiance and Leah and camo hat and new hat, they all are pretty interchangeable, right down to the bleached hair, fake nails, and super curved bill.
Likewise, just how everything in Corey's world will always follow a simpler, flame-emblazoned truck story line, Jenelle Evans also likes to follow a script…and not one from the local pharmacy (that we know of, although I'm sure she wouldn't turn down any Rx painkillers). It's a Teen Mom 2 post of stuff that won't surprise you in the least!
Jenelle's sister Ashleigh ran to the tabloids the minute she found out the news. It's apparent that these two are still not on good terms.
"My sister got married this morning, it was a shotgun courthouse wedding." Um, not sure if Ashleigh really gets what the term "shotgun" means since Jenelle says she is definitely NOT pregnant. Jenelle hasn't "confirmed" the wedding, but she did share on Twitter that she's not preggers again. "NOOO I'm not and Courtland did not say anything about getting me pregnant or having kids anytime soon. Over my dead body if I would be that selfish to have a baby before getting Jace back."
Last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the ladies got wild and out in Ojai. I have to say last night was one of the most fun episodes ever and it makes you think if they all got their panties out of a wad, relaxed, and spoke to each other like normal people instead of obsessing over petty drama they'd all get along and be fun. But alas, that would be too easy and far too mature.
Things begin with the girls still in Ojai where Brandi Glanville has just dropped the eff-bomb at Buckingham Palace in front of Queen Elizabeth and her corgis. Oh, wait – no she didn't. She just said it to Adrienne Maloof, but the way these ninnies were acting you'd think this was the most official, classy, elegant prestigious dinner in all the world. I don't know why they were all getting up on their high horses acting like they've never said F-U before when we all know they use it. Right, Splits Richards?
Anyway, Brandi and Kim Richards were doing a big Ojai love-in and pouring their hearts out when Adrienne gets on the intercom with her whiny, donkey voice to announce that someone is crying in Aisle 5 and clean-up is required. Repeat, someone – ahem KIM – is crying!
So Brandi was forced to tell Adrienne to eff off and everyones' heads snapped around like Adrienne just announced that someone was peeing on a Chanel bag. Their mouths dropped, and they glared at Brandi as if she was pee culprit desecrating the holy statue.
