On last night’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels, we start at Mica Hughes’ apartment, where she’s on the phone with Daisy Lewellynto tell her about her peace-treaty lunch later that day with Demetria Lucas in Brooklyn. Daisy knows that Mica’s sensitive about Demetria’s accusations about Mica being an alcoholic, but Mica hopes for the best. She’s going into the meeting with an open heart, but knows that Demetria can be a hard nut to crack. AtArzo Anwar’s showroom, Melyssa Ford visits to look through the matchy-matchy oversized fashions on display. The two of them have bonded over their failed relationships in the past, so Arzo asks her to visit her family in CA with her to tell Arzo’s family about her current squeeze, YestirDay. Arzo’s parents would prefer her to marry an Afghani, a Muslim, or at least probably someone not named YestirDay. Melyssa thinks it’s time to tell Arzo’s parents the truth no matter what their reaction may be.
Chantelle Fraservisits Daisy, who’s in bed feeling the effects of radiation and chemo pills. Chantelle and Arzo are the only girls who have reached out to Daisy since the entire group found out about her cancer. Demetria and Geneva Thomas have been on radio silence since the “big reveal” last week, apparently. Well, maybe Geneva can’t catch a cab to visit Daisy. But what’s Demetria’s excuse? Chantelle interviews that she’s afraid for Daisy and she wants to be a support system for her. The two discuss last episode’s brunch, during which Arzo and Chantelle got into it over the “Afghan Hound” comment. Chantelle’s ready to get over it. In the mean time, she does Daisy a solid by helping her clean up her closet!
Across town, Mica Hughes is sitting on the floor of her closet surrounded by $49.99 wigs and complaining to Daisy on the phone that her hair is beat. If that short-short wig Mica wore last episode is in this pile of bargain weaves, she needs to feed it to her chinchilla, pronto. Mica & Daisy discuss Arzo Anwar’supcoming runway presentation (for one of the designers she carries), and Daisy’s excited to attend a positive event now that her chemo is done (YAY!). Next step: radiation. Daisy fills Mica in on Geneva’s arrest, and Mica almost slips on a wig hearing this news. Mica says she can totally picture Geneva going HAM on the cabbie, given how Geneva’s told Mica off in the past. Then she lets her chinchilla lick her cell phone. Finally, swinging on her stripper pole then promptly falling off of it, Mica ponders the fabulousness that is Mica.
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 this week. Enjoy.
Yes! It’s the night of the pop-up runway show and some police…uh, interference. Last night on Blood, Sweat, and Heels, it’s Fashion Week in NYC and the ladies are prepping their various businesses in hopes of forwarding their names in the industry. GenevaThomas, apparently now a fashion journalist who studied fashion at NYU, scored a 1-on-1 interview with designer Byron Lars, which she’s proud of. In another proud moment later tonight, Geneva will be showing us how to pair police handcuffs with a low patent leather pump (spoiler alert!). Daisy Lewellen is werking the mike off-off stage somewhere, where the Real Housewives of Atlanta have been cordoned off: well, at least Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore, who describe who they’re wearing, then peace out. Daisy’s running hard again, covering 6-7 fashion shows a day (and modeling her new Beyonce-inspired wigs!).
Mica Hughes is checking out bar/restaurant venues for her “pop up runway show.” Bottom line: it’s a fashion show with a flash mob feel. What can go wrong, I ask you? I guess the restaurant they’re scoping out will soon host unsuspecting patrons whose happy hours are interrupted by models and Mica popping out of nowhere working a makeshift runway. Please let this happen to me at some point in my life!
Last night on Blood, Sweat, and Heels the ladies do what no Real Housewife has (possibly) ever done by episode 3 in a season: they make up with dignity and class. Daisy Lewellyngets disappointing news about her final cancer treatment though, while Melyssa Fordmakes plans to head back into the real estate world, and new girl Chantelle Frasersteps on some toes.
Melyssa is grateful that opening night of her play is over so she’s celebrating by getting pedicures with her mom & aunt. Her mom was touched by the part in the play where no one wanted to listen to her talk (back-in-the-day-like-10-years-ago) when she was a video vixen. Melyssa feels good about finally being able to open up to her mom. Having always been a daddy’s girl, she knows she’s held her mom at arm’s length for too long and wants to focus on being a better daughter now.
OK, folks! In full disclosure, I am writing this Blood, Sweat, and Heels recap after sweating and slogging around Disney World all day with my family, so I may be a little slow on the uptake. (Actually it’s been a blast and I have mad respect for all of the parents who’ve gone before me running the Mickey gauntlet.) I’ve got three full cups of coffee in my system now and am ready to roll – so, here we go!
We pick up with Melyssa Ford rehearsing for her soon-to-debut musical/comedy “For Vixens Who’ve Considered Homicide When the Video Was Too Much.” So, it’s catchy then! Melissa says she creates high pressure situations for herself so she can squeeze diamonds out. She’s looking to spoof the industry that’s defined her for so long – the music industry that made her, that is. She takes the stage to rehearse her lines and it seems as if she needs a BIT more work before opening day. Melyssa interviews that she wants to be more than a video vixen has been – she wants to be a professional, uh, professional. She can’t think of an exact title yet, so step off people!
I have been firmly two stilettos on board with Blood, Sweat and Heels since the show premiered last season. In the overblown world of Bravo Housewives shows, BS&H served up something different: i.e. real women doing mostly real things in a surreal environment. Now season 2 is upon us with most of the original cast intact, plus a few new wild cards thrown in to stir things up.
Back from last season we have New Yorkers Daisy Lewellyn, wacky TV personality and style guide author, Demetria Lucas D’Oyley, dubbed the “black Carrie Bradshaw” for her blogging/writing prowess, Geneva Thomas, style marketing director, Melyssa Ford, former video vixen and current real estate protégé, and Mica Hughes, (my FAVE!) former model and current modeling/talent coach. New faces this season include Arzo Anwar, Afghan native & celebrity stylist, and Chantelle Fraser, founder of “Flawless NYC” agency, which books entertainment and talent for high end events. The only castmate axed from last season’s lineup was Brie Blythewood, resident bougie chick. Good riddance to her wooden carcass, I say.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
