Do any of you remember that show starring Jim J. Bullock from the early '80s called Too Close For Comfort? I loved that show when I was little! Well, something tells me that Bethenny Frankel is feeling a bit cramped in her current living situation, although it's not sitcom with the hilarious Monroe!
Check out this week's blogs from Kari Wells, Quad, and Toya, and let us know what you think! The Queen Bee's blog is nowhere to be found. Color me not surprised.
Kari admits that she cannot believe what has transpired based solely on gossip, adding, "Most of the time, it is made-up or exaggerated, and I think we can all see the pain and repercussions spreading gossip can have on people and their families."
"After getting to know Toya, I find it very hard to believe that she would ever gossip about Lauren; she is a mother herself and she was also an adopted by her stepfather," Kari says. "Nonetheless, Mariah believes it, and I am deeply saddened for the pain that this is now causing her. Of course, as a mother, she would want to protect her child, but NOT listening to gossip may have been the best way to do just that, or at least confirming the truth before acting on it."
You know what that means…a certain be-wigged one will be holding down the fort for Bravo's Tuesday night line-up. Will Kim Zolciak Biermann be vying for a schedule change for Don't Be Tardy? Hear that? It's the sound of a hundred wigs crying…
Just so you know, the always fabulous Real Housewives of New Jersey preteen G-to-the-I-A may be tweeting away, but that doesn't mean that her mom Teresa Giudice isn't monitoring what her daughter is doing online. She wants to make sure that her daughter is LOLing in the appropriate manner…and that means not using any bad language, even in abbreviations (or 'breves as I like to call them).
Gia recently tweeted the above picture with the caption "Omg.. My mom played softball. #lmfao @Teresa_Giudice" Cute, right? Not to Tre, who quickly responded, "@TrueGia don't say "f"! It's lmao for you. Wait don't say "a" either. How about lmbo?"
I spy with my little eye … self-serving agendas, freaky foreheads, and Monster High inspired eye shadow … it must be Married to Medicine!
This week's episode begins with Duncan and Kari Wells, talking business and going over space plans for the medical office building they own. There's one floor still unfinished, and Kari invites Dr. Simone Whitmore to check it out. Duncan asks about Aydin, who had agreed to look at the space, but Kari shoots down the idea. Aydin is married toMariah Huq, she reminds, and that comes with some serious baggage.
Meanwhile, Eugene and Toya Harris go over the plans for their upcoming Halloween party, the Spookey Ookey. First things first, Eugene wants to know how much money is being spent on the party, and I bust out laughing. Poor neutered Eugene … he's so cute … As expected, Toya's like, bitch, please and brings up more pressing issues, like Mariah's invitation to the party. Together, Eugene and Toys decide to un-invite Mariah and her family from the Spookey Ookey. Toya sends Mariah an email that reads like a college denial letter.
The ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seem to be in the tabloids more when they're not filming…although that may be the norm for the entire franchise. They don't want us to forget about them in the off season, that's for sure! After Adrienne Maloof's not-so-dramatic exit, rumors are swirling as to who will step into her hoofs shoes. While Yolonda Foster seamlessly meshed with the original ladies thanks to her lemon fresh attitude and perfect white jeans, there is still room for more drama-loving women who are dripping in diamonds and private jets.
That said, many readers will be happy to learn that one of the originals from Beverly Hills will be downgraded to a "friend" of the housewives. It's being reported that Taylor Armstrong will be returning to the upcoming season in a diminished capacity. While many viewers want her gone completely, there is something to be said for baby steps, right?
As always, the cast took to their Bravo blogs, to dish on the latest episode.
"I appreciate Quad's friendship and loyalty through the good, bad, and ugly," Mariah blogged. "I'm not going to pretend that I wasn't hurt Dr. Jackie invited all the ladies to her home except for me and Quad. I suppose Quad's crime is that she's my friend."
I'll be honest, I think the entire cast ofReal Housewives of New York needs to be revamped…and STAT. I was actually excited that Aviva Drescher and all of her neuroses wouldn't be returning, but of course Bravo had to pull a fast one on all of us! It looks like Pinot Singer will have someone to spar with after all!
While I'm not at all shocked that Bravo would pull a last minute rabbit out of its hat, I do have to commend Aviva for what she has been doing recently regarding the tragedy in Boston. I may not like to watch her on my mindless reality circuit (seriously, it's like nails on a chalkboard), I do believe that she always has the best (although often misguided) of intentions.
