Isn't there a saying about glass houses and throwing stones? I'd like to modify it just a tad. Those who get wasted and curl up in suitcases shouldn't toss fake Birkins at those who get drunk and practically naked in public. We're all just trying to get by, right?
Guess what, y'all! Shah's of Sunset'sLilly Ghalici is more than just a tiny pile of extensions and lip gloss and eyelashes. She's actually an extremely successful business woman and entrepreneur who plays an over-the-top "character" on Bravo's hit show. The lawyer turned reality star/bikini mogul is doing something right when it comes to her fashion start-up. I'm not even being sarcastic for once…Lilly is quite savvy.
In an interview with YFS Entrepreneur, the pint sized Lilly explains how she got to where she is now. She tells the site, "I was practicing law and I wasn’t really fulfilled. You know, it’s a job; it’s a 9 to 5 (more like a 7 to 8 when you’re first starting out as an associate). It just wasn’t really fulfilling. I’m an entrepreneur at heart so I decided I wanted to start my own business. I knew I wanted it to be in fashion, health or beauty. I had this great idea for bikinis so I just decided to do it and I jumped in headfirst. I figured I was going to give it my all; I’m not going to work part-time, do this part-time, so I just quit my job and I was working on it 24/7. It became my life, my passion…"
You know why I wasn't at NeNe Leakeswedding? You guessed it! I wasn't invited. Shocking, I know. Do you know why Kenya Moore's Gone with the Wind Fabulous self wasn't at the Neenster's nuptials? Her invitation also got lost in the mail She was traveling to Africa. Oh Kenya.
When the Real Housewives of Atlanta's newest drama queen isn't dodging eviction rumors and trying to hire fake husbands for story lines, she's entertaining fans with her high and mighty attitude. You don't get to be Miss USA if you're meek.
Happy Fourth of July, RT readers! Just as our forefathers wanted, I've got some Bravo drama for you on our nation's birthday! Not shockingly, it's from the ladies of Real Housewives of New York.
The craziness starts with a polo lesson courtesy of Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras…and I have on good authority that Bravo cameras were there catching every catty situation! The sixth season of RHONY is hyped as being the most dramatic ever, and I'm sure the ladies don't want to disappoint.
It seems like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are constantly in the media for feuding or cookbooks or club promotions, so today we thought we'd send some love to Real Housewives of New Jersey'sKathy Wakile. Granted, it's not as exciting or dramatic as anything her co-stars are usually stirring up, but sometimes we need a little calm in our lives, right?
Speaking to Parade, Kathy dishes on life with the Bravo cameras and how she's tried to maintain balance with her family, her new business opportunities, and the all encompassing world of reality television.
Kathy has tried hard to make sure her kids don't listen to the haters, saying, “Sometimes it gets to you when people feel they are entitled to negatively judge you based on what they see on TV. My husband and I always discuss these things with our kids and try to reinforce what they know to be true about our family and not respond to ‘critics’ who don’t know the whole story. At the end of the day, we are each others foundation and stability, and that will never change. Our mantra is: ‘Don’t let other people’s perception change your reality.’”
Both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga get on my last nerve with their one-upping and back-and-forth and white lies on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Petty, petty, petty! However, I don't know what is more humorous…Tre's very thinly veiled insults or Melissa's constant high road antics as if she's never stooped to her sister-in-law's level.
After Tre revisited her table trash can flipping ways at "her" gym with brother Poison on this week's episode, Melissa is all about addressing the situation in her weekly Bravo blog. Don't worry…she also takes plenty of opportunity to promote her book Love Italian Style!
Melissa writes, "What I saw from my husband’s conversation with his sister is that Teresa can dish it out, but she can’t take it. Come on girl, toughen up! I take it all the time. On Season 3, she mocked my music and called me a gold digger. On Season 4, she said I’d leave my husband for a richer man and I was questioned by her about being a stripper. We already know I’m a bad daughter-in-law. I don’t know how many more negative things I can be accused of."
How much fun was it to walk down memory lane with the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County? Lest we forget (as if she'd ever let us!) Vicki Gunvalson has been there since day one. I mean, hey, her kids are part of the reason that it even exists!
In her Bravo blog, Vicki attempts to come across as light-hearted, normal, and down-to-earth. She'd never spread gossip, and she's sad by broken friendships. Has she been watching the same ninety-nine episodes to which we've been treated? Vicki takes particular offense to former friend Lauri Peterson's return to stir the pot…something she's never done herself, right?
Ahh, the memories. Let's hear Vicki's take on it, shall we?
