The Bravo network really is the gift that keeps on going. No one is more aware of that than the king of Bravo himself, Andy Cohen, who blessed us all with an amazing, holiday themed episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Andy dubbed the night 12 Doorbells of Christmas. The guests were everything – for the most part. I won’t point out who I wasn’t as excited to see (since it should be pretty obvious), but I can’t help getting pumped for any Bravolebrity if I’m being honest.
I’m not going to lie, I’ve read a lot of books “written” by the Real Housewives. In all honesty, I’ll consume just about any Bravo-related content, but I’m beyond excited for Erika Jayne’s first memoir.
She was introduced to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsladies as Erika Girardi, the wife of a lawyer thirty years older than she is, but we soon found out about her pop star alter ego Erika Jayne and fell in love with her. Even so, we don’t know that much about there. She has a carefully crafted persona and has remained a mystery for these past two seasons. The reality star announced that she had a book in the works this past July and now she has an official release date.
Changes are in the salty, sparkly Beverly Hills air – Eileen Davidson is out (and it doesn’t even look like she makes a cameo?), and it’s confirmed that Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is stepping into Eileen’s tall blonde heels. The fitness coach and married mom of 2 is also the daughter of John Mellencamp, and is not at all shy about flexing her guns!
As the sole remaining original cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s only natural that the Teresa Giudice we “met” during the first season is a lot different than the lady we are currently watching during Season 8. Aside from that iconic table flip, Teresa has been known for keeping her personal feelings private, slapping on a happy face, and acting like everything is all right even when it very clearly isn’t.
I’m all for this new Teresa. She’s zen when she needs to be, she throws objects to entertain us, and she is finally open about her resentment toward her husband Joe Giudice after her prison stint.
Yolanda is not contemplating a return to the show that put her on the map (thank God), but she was there to promote her new book, which was barely discussed since she was just asked a bunch of questions about her super model daughters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid and her former RHOBH costars.
