“He’s Captain Lee (Captain Lee, Captain Lee), when you crew for him, you’re working hard as can be. Fool around, you’ll scrub the decks till three. He’s rough. He’s tough. He’s alpha to a tee. Captain Lee…he’s the stud of the sea!” Can I get an “AMEN”?!?
We learned a lot of juicy little secrets on the final installment of the Below Deck reunion, didn’t we? Captain HAROLD Lee Rosbach? Respect! The reunion begins where last week’s left off…galley-gate! Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is still accusing Kate Chastain of boozing on the clock when the fire started, and Captain Lee reminds her that former chef Leon “Beef Cheeks” Walker said she was and then admitted that she wasn’t. One way or another, he was lying. Amy Johnson skirts Andy Cohen’s direct question as to whether she’s ever seen Kate drinking on charter by responding that she thinks all of the finger pointing is petty. Andy drops the subject and moves onto my favorite Bravo promo in the history of television. Lee jokes that his wife “has gotten a lot of mileage” out of his “alpha to a tee” persona, and the crew reveals he’s a bit of a celebrity…and his first name is actually Harold, which Andy never knew. Lee’s plethora of colorful metaphors is revisited, with “when you get caught with your tit in the ringer” being everyone’s new favorite. Rocky accuses the Captain of showing support to his chief stew and head bosun, but Amy disagrees. She believes he is there for his entire crew, and Lee is quick to respond he’d lay the smack down on anyone–even Eddie Lucas–if he thought it was necessary.
I guess the friendship contract I assumed had been voided long ago is still in place after all! Perhaps the former and current Real Housewives of Atlanta stars have even added a truce addendum! Cynthia Bailey, who drafted the infamous document to solidify her bond with NeNe Leakes, has found her voice over the past two seasons, and when NeNe left the show, there was no love lost between the one-time besties. However, it seems that hell is starting to freeze over–is that a pig I see flying??–because the two ladies have been spotted together…and they are smiling (and blonde)!
NeNe shared the above-posted picture to her Instagram with the caption, “Super sexy in the big city @cynthiabailey10 #byebrazil #workinprogress.” NeNe has been in New York due to her Broadway stint in Chicago, and Cynthia isn’t the only one of the Neenster’s RHOA cast mates who wish her well. NeNe retweeted former Atlanta housewife Sheree Whitfield (who has already made waves this season), responding “Thank u boo!” to Sheree’s comment: “Proud of you @NeNeLeakes You are gonna kill it! #neneinchicago”
Cyber Monday is the day to shop online, so we decided to help you knock a few things off your holiday gift list and show a little love to the people who bring us all together every day, the reality TV stars. Goodness knows that there is NO shortage of stuff from which to choose, but here’s our pick for the best of 2015.
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from last week.
All aboard the S.S. Krayonce for Bravo’s version of the Titanic, with far less hearts going on and a lot more going off on others. Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta a 3 hour cruise went horribly wrong and some Housewives panicked under pressure. It was every Housewife for herself with only unlimited booze, bikinis, and some very extra ‘Friends’.
Before all that Kenya Moore decides to be neighborly by walking over to Chateau Sheree where Sheree Whitfield is sweeping the front porch. What type of so-called exclusive, upscale neighborhood has a highway running through it? Highway 666 judging by the neighbors!
Kenya marvels at the size of Chateau Sheree and tries to barge in, but can’t open the door. Did Sheree get She By SheVicted?! To distract her, Sheree demands, “Where my cookies at?!”
For this season’s storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are going through a rough patch in their marriage – triggered by the “cheater” video that circulated to a few sites over the summer. On the last episode Cynthia and Peter decided they want to try to make their marriage work and in her newest blog she talks about that decision and more, including dishing on Kenya Moore’s big launch party.
On whether it was difficult to have the conversation with Peter she shared, “It was absolutely difficult to have a serious conservation with my husband regarding the fate of our marriage. Everyone has a breaking point, and at that time, I felt like I had reached mine. I wanted to keep an open mind and listen to Peter, however it was important to me to be heard and have my words be received. When I asked Peter if he is the kind of person who stays in a relationship even if it is no longer working, I needed to hear his truth. I know I am not that person. I don’t want to be a part of anything that is unhealthy and no longer serves my life purpose. I truly believe the only reason for being in a relationship/marriage is to be a better and happier person than you are alone. I know that all relationships go through their ups and downs, but there should be more good times than bad times. More light than darkness. After our conversation, my heart told me not to give up, and to try to work it out.”
“Mental wounds not healing; who and what’s to blame? I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy train!” What could possibly be to blame? Maybe those sparkly butterflies occupying the ceiling of Eros? I so wanted another boat ballad to steer us into last night’s fun, but a little Ozzy Osbourne never hurt anyone. Plus, a boat is just a train on water, right? I don’t know about y’all, but I think it’s high tide, um, I mean “high time,” that the crew of Below Deck got a proper reunion! And a two-parter to boot! They have clearly arrived by Bravo standards! Andy Cohen has pulled the yachties from the WWHL clubhouse, and he feels like Captain Lee Rosbach has called them all to the bridge of the Eros.
Emile Kotze is sporting his grandfather’s suit, Eddie Lucas is looking adorable with a beard (it almost–ALMOST–makes me forget his douche-esque behavior this season!) and Kate Chastain has foregone the resting bitch face…for the time being. The get together kicks off with the gang recalling their favorite charter guests, and Connie Arias recalls that her roommate Emile would ask her to hit the deck a few minutes early every morning so he could spank the salami (or whatever the phrase may be). Lovely. Andy inquires as to why Raquel “Rocky” Dakota Bartlow is always chatting with her pal the ceiling, and she jokes that there were likely sparkly butterflies and unicorns flying around up there. When Eddie tries to crack a joke, Rocky jumps. Does Eddie want to get into things already? Is his girlfriend there so Rocky can share some of the sordid details of their laundry room hook-ups?
