If you live in the Garden State, spend far above your means, and at least eighty percent of your wardrobe contains sequins and/or faux fur, you could possibly be a Real Housewife of New Jersey. If you're racing your former friends and family members to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List, you are on Bravo's short list for sure!
Depending on what floats your boat, there's a book penned by a RHONJ star that is just right for you. Do you like sampling new Fabulicious recipes? I think we all know that Teresa Giudice has you covered. Is party planning one of your hobbies? Pick up a copy of Dina Manzo's new book. Is TMI in the bedroom the kind of juicy gossip you crave? Look no further than Melissa Gorga to dish on her relationship with Poison! And, of course, if you want straight talk, Caroline Manzo is going to tell it like it is in her new tome. It looks like this Bravo franchise has the book market cornered!
Former Real Housewives of New YorkstarJill Zarin is really good at two things…tooting her own horn and extending her fifteen minutes–much to the chagrin of all of us! While Jill loves talking about how she wants to stay out of the spotlight and focus on her businesses, she can't seem to get all things Bravo and RHONY from spewing out of her mouth.
This time around she's chatting ad nauseam about her reasons for agreeing to do the show which range from wanting more family time to free publicity for her business ventures. I'm going to let you determine which one you think was the most important to her. Jill also waxes poetic about being one of the pioneers of the Housewives franchise, and she gives stellar advice on how to everyone can reach their goals. Sit back, relax, and take a Jill pill…
I want y'all to think back to a simpler time…a time when neighbors were friends, and they washed Cornish game hens in dish washing soap and had dinner parties together. A time before the skies grew dark, and one friend with blue hair feathers got mad at another satin cloaked friend for not having her satin cloaked daughter's bachelorette party at feather-mane's casino. I miss those days. NOT! While I generally don't enjoy conflict (it makes me super uncomfortable), there is something about the Lisa Vanderpump/Adrienne Maloof feud that is oh, so entertaining.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars used to be pals, but now there's an unfair fight brewing in the tabloids. A now fired Adrienne is taking every opportunity to badmouth her former friend, and she should have learned long ago that talking smack about Lisa never ends well for the smack talker. Lisa is smart enough not to start any drama, but when it comes her way, she silences it with some biting and witty remarks that make said smack talker look like an idiot. And let's be honest, shall we? Adrienne is already struggling with her image, and her new plan of spewing hate on Lisa's restaurant Villa Blanca is quickly backfiring.
This is so NOT bananas. In fact, it's so far from being bananas it's practically a cantaloupe. Everyone's favorite 1970's inspired bag lady stylist turned designer returned to Bravo last night with a vengeance. That's right! The fifth season of the Rachel Zoe Project premiered, and it started off on a very bad note thanks to Page Six.
Way back in August, Page Six published a scathing article saying that Rachel Zoe's new line was in trouble and was not attracting customers at high end department stores. The article speculating that her show would be canned before a fifth season could air. Well, we all know that last part isn't true! As you can imagine, Rachel wasn't too thrilled with the article, and we got to see her reaction play out in our living rooms.
Even though the ladies of Bravo's Real Housewives of Miami finally found their voices in their sophomore season, some could definitely out yell the others. Of course, Lea Black had a way of using her biting sarcasm to battle the volume of her co-stars. When she wasn't stirring the pot among her friends or showering them with backhanded compliments, Lea could be found working on her annual gala and spending time with her family.
Everyone knows that Lea's gala is like her second child, and she treats it as such. In a recent interview, she talks about how she';s prepping for huge April event while promoting a new line of skin care products and juggling her reality career. I have a feeling next we'll be seeing a line of turbans from Lea, don't you think?
Taylor describes her new relationship as a happiness she never thought she'd find. Even daughter Kennedy is reaping the benefits of her mother's new love life, as Taylor is finally remembering where her child is on a regular basis. How sweet is that? It's the stuff fairy tales are made of, y'all! Congrats Sheena Taylor!
It could definitely be argued that Shahs of Sunset'sGolnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi did not get the fairest of shakes on the most recent season of the Bravo hit. The tiny spitfire was on the receiving end of some serious NFL action, and I'm not talking about professional football! After an altercation with cast mate Asa Soltan Rahmati, things seemed to spiral out of control for the group of friends, with everyone feeling forced to take sides. GG's romantic life was front and center as well, as her relationship with Omid Kalantari heated up and the pair became engaged off screen before calling it quits.
Thankfully, GG was kind enough to set the record straight in an interview with Reality Tea, and I think you'll find her answers to be honest and heartfelt. She certainly isn't one to mince words, and she dishes on everything from her status with Omid to her favorite part of the season. GG also discusses her goals for the future as well as what you didn't get to see on Shahs.
I've got some "when pigs fly" gossip for you. It may be highly unlikely, but it's certainly fun to entertain, especially if you're a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan. Casting buzz for season four puts none other than Brandi Glanville's Twitter nemesis in the running for the show. That's right, y'all! Some folks are claiming that LeAnn Rimes will be singing her way onto the scene.
Even more unbelievable? The same folks who want LeAnn on the show are claiming that Brandi is her biggest advocate! I don't know about you, but I just don't see this coming to fruition. However, because it's Friday and it's funny (and it's also National Margarita Day, go figure!), give us your best opening tag line for LeAnn in the comments!
