Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer – and the Real Housewives took to social media to show off how they spent the holiday weekend.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville took her two boys, Mason and Jake, to Palm Springs, and then she proceeded to complain about the amount of kids – “It’s noon. It’s time for wine. Kids. Everywhere.” – and the oppressive heat – “117 degrees!”
“Loving Palm Springs,” added Brandi. “I’ve been asked so many times where my boyfriend is but the truth is I just wanted face time with Mason and Jake.”
The exact problem of the ratings decline has yet to be identified, but my guess is it has something to do with unrealistic storylines — bookgate — and planned confrontations — leg throwing. Huh, I just realized that both of those have to do with Aviva. Hmmmmmmm….more on that in a bit.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
The Little Couple star Jen Arnold shared, “After only one day of school, Will and Zoey have become avid readers. LOL! JK, but they do enjoy reading.”
Last night Kim Kardashian was at the VMAs sans her musical genius husband Kanye West. Kim attended with her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and she also came on stage to introduce Sam Smith’s performance. Did anyone watch the VMAs? They had SNL’s Jay Pharaoh on the show, doing bits pretending to be Jay Z. and then Kanye. Kendall and Kylie were in hysterics and Kim was smiling blankly at the camera and looking at her sisters like “Whaaat did he say? Should I be laughing?” I added the video below.
Since we don’t have a new episode of The Real Housewives of New York tonight, we have the next best thing – a photo gallery featuring plenty of the show’s former and current stars!
In our new photo gallery this week we have Bethenny Frankel out attending the Hamptons Paddle & Party For Pink event with her daughter Bryn Hoppy as well as her current boyfriend, Michael Cerussi. Aviva Drescherhit up Tommy Bahamas with Reid and the kids.
Oh, Sonja Morgan, how badly she wants to be the voice of reason as this season of Real Housewives of New York comes to a close. It’s been entertaining to say the least! I’ll give it to Sonja…when she’s sober, she at least tries to keep the peace. She’s fiercely loyal to Ramona Singer, and sometimes–sometimes–she even makes sense when discussing the drama among her co-stars!
Poo-pooing the idea that ghost writing allegations should cause such a hullabaloo, Sonja begins, “At this point, I am numb to the whole BookGate debate. I am not on anyone’s side, I just hope that both books are bestsellers and that Carole [Radziwill] and Aviva [Drescher] are making enough money to pay the bills with their books because BookGate has definitely taken an emotional toll on their friendship. I know that they were close and had great times together. In fact, Carole was once the godmother to Aviva’s daughter. How can this come between them? Such contention over the accusations! I don’t know why they let it get so heated. It’s not worth it! I just hope that they can forgive each other at some point. As you get to know someone, you get to see their strengths and weaknesses — and you have to accept those if you’re going to be friends.”
She reveals, “I was surprised when the girls laughed at me discussing my ability to forgive and voicing my Christianity. I think that it is one of the reasons that I can live my own life and not worry about everyone else’s or the grass being greener. It’s all relative. We are on Earth for such a short time. I am enjoying every day of my life. I am grateful for the family and friends that I have and my beautiful daughter.”
As the tail-end of the reunion, the drama was lackluster as all the mini-feuds were unscabbed and reargued part deux. At the center of most of the messes is Aviva Drescher. Among her many issues, she insists she was paying Carole Radziwill a compliment when she said, “At least I’m not 50 years old…” during their bookgate argument. Apparently in the convoluted twisted land of Avicious’ mind saying that someone is 50 and alone is a compliment, because she actually thought they were older. Ramona Singer, tact police, tut-tuts that even in a pinot-laced haze she knows that’s no compliment. That’s Aviva’s MO, to make a nasty comment and then claim the other person misconstrued it and she was actually trying to say xyz…
Avicious‘ other MO is to drop classicist epithets. Last night’s recipient was Heather Thomson. Aviva is appalled by Heather’s use of the phrase “mother f–ka” because Aviva says it sounds “gangster” and Heather did not grow up in the ghetto – nor has she been to prison. Apparently those are the only places people learn such language. Which confuses me because didn’t Aviva tell Kristen Taekman to “shut the F–k up“? Was Aviva in prison unbeknownst to us? She should be! Or perhaps Vassar was teaching a Ghetto Language Course? Needless to say Heather is offended by Aviva’s ignorance.
