Kenya Moore set her inner-Krayonce aside to find love on the Millionaire Matchmaker. Seriously – there were no Kenyanigans. I was strangely disappointed. As much as I snark on Kenya, I rely on her insanity to keep me indentured to Bravo. I do not need to see her behaving normally. But alas, we all must make sacrifices for love!
There were shocking developments however – Patti Stanger actually made two love connections (!) as she established herself the champion of under-appreciated women in their 40’s and 50’s! Or something like that – I tuned out around the time she described Cynthia Bailey as one of the top supermodels in the world and Kenya’s best friend.
Talk about a blast from reality TV past! Some long-forgotten reality stars turned out this weekend for WE tv’s “Evolution Of The Relationship Reality Show.”
Remember “Joe Millionaire“ from way back in 2003? The show where the guy (Evan Marriott) pretended to be a millionaire and then revealed at the very end that he wasn’t? And if they still wanted to get together, they could split a million bucks? Yeah, he showed up! Evan was one of the few reality stars who escaped and returned to normal life! He attended the event and shared that he went back to being a contractor and lives a regular low-key life nowadays.
Also giving us some reality TV flashbacks was Darva Conger! Name sound familiar? She was the blonde who appeared on “Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire” with Rick Rockwell. She married him but then had it annulled very shortly after, claiming “misrepresentation.”
She By SheBroke has re-branded herself as a “fitness coach,” – finally – but cannot recover from the heartbreak of Bob Whitfield‘s missing seven-figures, so she’s never moved on after their divorce. Instead Sheree hardened her exterior shell, along with her heart, and Patti dubs her a “crockpot woman,” because she’s so slow to warm up.
Nonetheless Sheree is relying on Patti to help her find that “instant connection.” The butterflies, the tingles, which Sheree says she’s never had. You mean Bob never gave her tingles?! No… “When I love, I love hard,” promises Sheree. And when she divorces, she divorces hard too… In fact, Sheree might as well come with a disclaimer: Court is my extracurricular activity! Paying bills… that’s your job!
Sadly, Sheree never even gets to the love stage, because she slams the door shut before anyone can peek inside.
Patti Stanger and Jax Taylor were Andy’s guests last night on Watch What Happens Live and Patti was full of opinions on the Vanderpump Rules cast!
Patti gave Jax a lot of crap about not settling down and that it was too easy for him because women just throw themselves at him.
Andy shows Patti each of the Vanderpump Rules couples and asks her to give her thoughts on each. She thinks Schwartz and Katie are pretty good now and she thinks Katie could get him in check. On Tom and Ariana she says “Oh God, he cheated.” On Kristen and James she says “I can’t say what I really want to say. He’s for the other team, come on!” Andy is acting stunned that she’s getting a gay vibe from James. Patti says “My gaydar is gaydar, what can I say? I mean, GLAAD’s probably going to call me now.”
Last night Chris Manzo went for round two on the Millionaire Matchmaker. While some things have changed, like he’s no longer on Real Housewives Of New Jersey… OK, that’s the only thing that has changed (including that Patti Stanger still wears rompers and short-suits every freaking day!) because Chris is still a mama’s boy who needs mama’s approval before buying a pants that don’t belong on a 50-year-old.
True to form Caroline Manzo accompanies Chris to check in with Patti and go over what he’s looking for in a woman. He found her – her name is Caroline. Patti eventually sends Caroline out of the room because there is a difference between smothering and mothering, but the sad part is Chris is looking for someone, not only that his entire family also wants to date, but whom reminds him of Caroline, because he idolizes his parents’ marriage. Mmmmkay, moving on.
Patti describes Chris as desperately clinging onto the mama’s boyness and is afraid to move-on (or out!). She worries that he comes across as boring and needs to be micromanaged. Caroline worries that with Lauren getting married (and hating every girl Chris and Albie look at) and Albie finally in a relationship, Chris will end up living at home forever. Not that it’s a problem … I mean who makes better meatballs than mama?!
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!
The Real Housewives of Miami’sMarysol Patton may have been unlucky in love throughout her time on the Bravo show, marrying in season one and separating in season two. And her frenemy, Lea Black even implied that is was a green card marriage at a catty dinner party.
But now, Marysol is reaching out to another Bravolebrity in order to change her luck in the romance department.
