It’s an all new Friday photo roundup! This week Lisa Vanderpump attended the People’s Choice Awards, posing on the blue carpet with her bestie Lady Gaga’s fiance Taylor Kinney (also known as Uncle Mason from the Vampire Diaries). Taylor took home an award for his hit show, Chicago Fire.
Also in attendance – and winning an award – was Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler. Maddie beat out Kylie Jenner, Ruby Rose, Cara Delevingne, and Bella Thorne for the DailyMail.com Seriously Popular Award.
First, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gushes over her love for QVC and all things cardigan! “I am so forever grateful for this experience to design a line of comfy, cozy, California chic clothing for women of all sizes. I just love every second of the process, and to work alongside such amazing designers as Isaac Mizrahi and Dennis Basso, who along with Joan Rivers, have been my mentors in so many ways is just beyond. I am constantly learning and growing as a business woman and clothing designer. I’m honored to now be going into my 5th year with QVC and I feel so very blessed! I also love the three different pieces — the shearling jacket, the cozy cardigan and the striped cardigan I’m wearing in this week’s episode!”
Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan is certainly juggling quite a few hats these days. The entrepreneurial diva is reportedly, now scouting New York City Upper East Side locations (of course) in hopes of finding a perfect locale for a restaurant she’d like to name Tipsy according to the New York Daily News.
Ahhh…but wait, Sonja has an ulterior motive for wanting to join the ranks of restaurateurs in the Big Apple…a reality show! An insider who spoke to the Daily News revealed, Sonja has aspirations of becoming another Lisa Vanderpump, the grand dame of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality show fame. Lisa, who owns restaurants, also managed to snag a successful spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, based on the shenanigans at one of her West Hollywood posh eateries, SUR. The insider states, Sonja is not wasting a precious minute to get her wheels in motion to pitch her reality show idea and has gone as far as, “hiring a producer and filmmaker to try to make a show based on it.”
On the heartbreaking news of Kim’s second arrest, “When Lisa called me after hearing the news about my sister Kim I was in Idaho with my husband and children on vacation. Words can’t describe what I was feeling at the moment. It was SO new. I had just heard and clearly wasn’t ready to talk about it. I was still processing what had happened and thinking about how it would impact Kim and our family.”
Eileen Davidson managed to dodge most of the drama (what little there was) on this week’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But she still breaks the episode down in her blog, commenting on everything fromLisa Rinna’s QVC hustle to Lisa Vanderpump’s reaction to she and Kyle Richardsleaving their hotel in the Hamptons. As for the not-quite-sober ghost of Kim Richards haunting their Hamptons trip, Eileen supports Kyle’s wish to save her own skin stay mum on the mess, but does admit “the topic keeps getting dragged out” no matter how much Kyle wishes it away.
Eileen calls herself out on letting hubby Vince see her dress’s price tag while packing for the Hamptons. “Having Vincent help me pack clothes with the price tags on? AMATEUR move! Lisa R. texted me when she saw this episode, ‘What were you thinking? You have to cut those suckers off!’ I’ve now learned: Always destroy the evidence. I won’t make the same mistake again.”
When asked if she’s enjoying being a real housewife, Erika shares, “I’ve had a great time.” Andy asks how her lawyer husband, Tom Girardi, feels about the show. “He’s so supportive,” gushes Erika. “I really have nothing negative to say. Everything is okay.” Andy quips, “Well, you’re only four weeks into it.”
The girls are packing, which means a secret and exalted Bravo ritual known as CLOSET TOURS!
First and foremost – unfortunately – we are in the mumu factory. Tucked deep in a corner of Beverly Hill is a tiny, cluttered, neon-covered, eye-searingly printed lair known as Kyle Richards‘ dressing room. Ironically one of the closet rods actually collapses under the kaftan weight and refuses to be put right. Girl – that’s a sign! Even Porsha, aged 7, refused to help Kyle put the bar back up – she shot mama a knowing side-eye that said, “Things happen for a reason.” MmmmHmmmm…
Noting he had to “Schwartzify” his proposal setup, which included a fake proposal before the real deal went down, Tom explains, “Key elements to the proposal were surprise, not just for Katie but for everyone present, the perfect ring, great friends and a little quirk with the decoy proposal. The ring was really my anchor though. My ace in the hole. Even if I would have completely botched the proposal, the ring was so perfect that I couldn’t have failed.”
