You all know Million Dollar Listing: New York is one of my guilty pleasures for Fredrik Eklund's karate moves alone. However, no one does frat boy charm and silly arrogance quite like Ryan Serhant. Those eyes. That pig (I miss you, Kevin Bacon!). Those suits (gracious, those suits). Sure, he often comes across as a cocky S.O.B., but I think he's a real softie underneath it all.
Of course, I should know given that I got to chat with Ryan before this season's premiere. Most exciting ten minutes of my March, by far. Sad, I know. I just like to remember it when I watch…like when he talked about the time capsule town house that was finally featured on last week's episode. Apparently, I'm not the only one that Ryan gives interviews to (I'm shocked–I thought we had something special), and he's opening up about his personal philosophy–and rumors of a MDL crossover!–in a new one.
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 daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Above:Gretchen Rossi tweeted, "All I wanted after this weekend's fashion show (wearing a bikini in front of 3,000 people) was ice cream! So Slade Smiley found me an ice cream store and I had my favorite mint chocolate chip!"
"This year’s campaign features over thirty-five bravolebrities, who are starring in a three-ring circus – Bravo style," boastedBravo. "Fans can watchLisa Vanderpump and Giggy as lion tamers, Curtis Stone make an impressive fruit salad in mid-air, Jenni PulosandZoila Chavez dressed up as clowns playing a joke on Jeff Lewis, and James Lipton as a human cannonball. It’s sure to astonish fans of all ages."
Reality star sightings! We've got another photo roundup for you – featuring Lisa Vanderpump, NeNe Leakes, Tamar Braxton and more!
Kim Kardashian stepped out in Paris with her daughter North West to do some shopping at Givenchy. Nori is adorable, but I'm fixated (as always) on Kim's super white scalp contrasted with her super orange face! It's mesmerizing.
"She has a problem with where the whole show is going. Last season was really dark," Porsha reported. "She said she feels like it's changed." Porsha also emphasized that if NeNe left the show it would be a mutual parting and that Bravo has no intention of firing one of their biggest stars.
NeNe Leakes' future with Real Housewives of Atlanta continues to be a source of speculation. If you're a natural cynic like myself, you're probably starting to think this looks like a big ole' PR stunt by Bravo (and NeNe)!
First there were rumors that NeNe was demoted for angering Andy Cohen, refusing to bring the drama, and making unreasonable demands. Then came the rumors, started by NeNe herself, that she had quit the show. Then NeNe made a prominent appearance at the Upfronts and along with Kandi Burruss was the only RHOA star to represent. Now I firmly believe all the ladies from RHOA will be invited to return, will they all accept – who knows, but with with ratings this high Bravo is not going to mess with success too much!
However, NeNe continues to stoke the rumors that she may leave the show. In a recent interview with NaughtyButNiceRob she admitted she is considering downgrading her role. "I will still work for Bravo – I’m happy to stay on. We just need to work out some things," NeNe revealed. "I’m happy to do some things. I don’t know if I’m happy to be a full time Housewife."
Guess what – they still haven't! No surprise there.
Dr. Glenda Price, President of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, informed The Wrap that neither Real Housewives of Atlanta star has written that check! ”To date we have not received any funds from these individuals,” Dr. Price confirmed.
A few more photos of our favorite (and really not so favorite) reality stars are trickling in this morning. Cameras caught a few of the stars as they arrived at the hotel earlier in the day and several of them as they left their hotel last night to head to the event.
The stars in attendance are usually a sign of who might be coming back for the next season and who isn't. For instance, I think it's pretty clear that Lilly Ghalichi won't be returning to Shahs of Sunsetnext season since her co-stars were all on hand last night and she's back in L.A. That, coupled with the fact that she has had almost no interaction with them since the reunion pretty much says it all. #sadface
NeNe Leakes is another example. Rumors were swirling about her status. Was she fired? Did she quit? Was she downgraded? Sources came out of the woodwork, cryptic Tweets were sent out to tease the fans, and then she turns up for the presentation, which pretty much means she was invited back for another season of Atlanta. But no sign of Kenya Moore or Porsha Stewart or Phaedra Parks – all so that we can be kept guessing for a little while longer what Bravo decided to do about those messes.
