Attacking Cynthia is like smacking a bunny. Leave the girl alone to date and learn some tough-love lessons about getting played. Instead of bopping her on the head, her friends should pet her ever-changing wigs and tell her it will be OK. Clearly Cynthia habitually picks the WRONG men, and trying to teach her how to spot a scrub is not working. Even when she has a bonafide expert like Kandi Burruss at her disposal!
The Real Housewives Of Miami may be in our rearview mirrors, but Lea Black has not faded out of the spotlight – not by a long shot! The oft-titled “Mayor of Miami” appeared with her good friend Jeff Lewis on last season’s Flipping Out, and is already shooting scenes for this season as well (yay!). Lea also joins Jeff regularly on his SiriusXM radio show, where the two besties dish about pop culture, design, politics – you name it. Lea’s annual fundraising gala is still the talk of the town in Miami, and she’s also busy working on her skincare, jewelry and handbag lines, as well as promotion of her novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, a novel loosely based on the underbelly of Miami’s socialite scene.
Lea recently sat down with the Pink Shade With Erin Martin Podcast to dish on Housewives, Jeff, her relationship with The Queen of Versailles, Jackie Siegal – and more. Lea also does a Facebook Live show every Wednesday called Lunch With Lea which she describes as a time for her to dissect “all the trash and all the gossip – everything from pop culture to movies to music to politics to throwing people under the bus – laughing at people, laughing at people, awards shows. Whatever! We just talk, talk, talk.”
If anyone knows how to drum up attention on social media, it’s Kenya Moore. She is very skilled at sharing that she has a secret, but not actually revealing that secret, and letting that linger for (what feels like) forever and ever. She did this with her marriage and she’s done it plenty of times before. It seems like she always has some sort of “secret project” in the works.
Now Kenya is hard at work as an actress. Insert Kim Zolciak joke about Kenya “acting” like she is actually married. Kenya didn’t reveal anything about what she’s working on, but she did make it clear that there will be Moore news soon.
On Don’t Be Tardy, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann have really been on daughter Brielle Biermann’s case, pushing her to get a job and figure out her purpose in life. Watching that makes total sense, but if you break down the fourth wall and give it a second thought, you realize that just being Brielle Biermann is a job itself. She’s obviously not appearing on this TV show for free. Kim would never let her do that.
Brielle is earning a lot of money to just be herself, spend time with her family, and complain about her issues with her parents (who have supported her and allowed her to have reality TV fame). Brielle’s salary for her role on her family’s reality show Don’t Be Tardy has just been revealed and it’s a pretty big chunk of change considering that.
If there’s one thing Kenya Moore does not like it’s
Porsha accepting responsibility. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star threw a tantrum while in Houston on a charity trip, so Kenya is blaming her behavior on editing and claiming that, once again, Porsha Williams made her do it.
It’s no secret that Kenya had difficulty with production for hiding her marriage. After the episode Kenya took to Instagram, and accused “certain people” stirring up trouble and using charity for a storyline as the reason behind her outburst. Hmmm… wonder who she’s alluding to?
It is the particular ability of Real Housewives to turn the doing of something good (or straightforward) into a giant diabolical mess of bickering, tantrums, and meltdowns. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta headed to Houston to do some charity work after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey but brought a new kind of devastation all of their own making. Thanks, but no thanks!
I don’t want to imply nothing of merit happened on this trip, but competing charity events in hurricane-destroyed towns, complete with all the accompanying Housewives histrionics, may be a new low. Possibly? Maybe I should try to be more positive and instead believe the ladies were so overcome with emotion from their good works and seeing people who lost everything that in turn they lost their heads? Naaaahhh.
Whenever a psychic, a medium, a tarot card reader, or anyone who claims to be in touch with the other side appears on a Real Housewives show, there is bound to be trouble. Usually, it’s a guarantee for an entertaining episode. The medium Mbele who appeared on the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta did not provide much personal insight, but her presence at the “Elephant Room” event that NeNe Leakes put together resulted in a lot of tension.
They were all skeptical of Mbele’s abilities as a medium and her poor attitude, but Kim Zolciak was the one who really took issue with the woman. Mbele even offered to give Kim a “spiritual bath” (whatever that means) and Kim was just not having it. Mbele didn’t exactly come through with the readings, but Kenya Moore read Kim to filth while she sat there in silence so she could collect her “Friend of the Housewives” paycheck.
It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
