If you had told me back in 2010 that a post-Jersey Shore Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would appear on additional reality shows, my money would have been on Celebrity Rehab or some other franchise that reeks of Dr. Drew. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the fist pumping, cahhb cahhlling, Sunday dinner eating, GTL-ing, DTF-ing, Shore Store employees probably more than the average fan, but I didn’t really predict any sort of staying power. Of course, we all know I’m an idiot.
Not only has most of the cast matured and done very well for themselves, Snooki went on to star in a reality spin-off with bestie Jenni “J-Woww” Farley(with another one on the way!). She got married to Jionni LaValle, and the couple has two ridiculously precious children. While she still has a penchant for all things animal print, those giant sneaker slippers (I’m hoping) are a thing of the past. That’s right, guys, our little meatball is all grown up, and she’s embarking on a new reality endeavor for the FYI network. I think this is what is known as “adulting.”
Kathryn admitted she handled the situation badly, adding, “Hindsight is 20/20, and watching it now, I wish I would have done things differently.”
“When I sat down to the table with Erika, we started talking casually, as this has been the case since we met. When I had the ladies to my home in San Diego, I shared with them the loss of my father. I noticed everyone was so thoughtful and sensitive to it. Erika, while sitting at the table, shared with Kyle and LVP what had transpired while they had stepped out. Her conveyance of the story to them was cold and matter-of-fact,” said Kathryn. “When Erika later spoke of it in her interview she was sweet, sensitive and seemingly caring. I like that Erika.”
Kyle shares her annoyance at Yolanda for calling out her side conversation with Lisa Vanderpump while they were at lunch. “I was surprised but happy that Yolanda showed up for lunch. We hadn’t heard from her since we were all at Erika’s when she and Rinna had gotten into their argument. Lisa and I both were a little perplexed by their abrupt “hug it out” and wondered what was going on with the situation. While this conversation that started between Lisa and me was more of a side conversation (going on while three other conversations were happening), we of course know that nothing we say in this arena is “private” or a “secret.” We will all see this eventually.”
Eileen Davidson may be experiencing the sophomore slump as a year two housewife; or maybe she’s just exhausted from pretending to care about LymeGate. But whatever her reasons, she’s been a bit irritated as of late, and came at the queen last night with guns blazing! In her blog, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star questions Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship, along with Kathryn Edwards’ motives in spilling all of Erika Girardi’s dirt virtually 24 hours after receiving it! Seems like Eileen thinks everyone has a lot of ‘splainin to do. (Can we start with Yolanda Hadid? Pretty, pretty please!)
Concerning Yolanda’s passive-aggressive ‘bi-polar’ comment, Eileen reflects, “Originally, I brought up Yolanda’s bi-polar comment (with Yolanda’s blessing, by the way) in an attempt to explain to Lisa [Rinna] how Yolanda still felt about everything. At lunch, it took on a different connotation. Kyle [Richards] is right: ‘Putting it out there is putting it out there.’ By Yolanda saying ‘she has too much class’ to accuse Lisa R. of being bi-polar, she’s putting it out to the universe just as much as Lisa R. did about the Munchausen’s. After all of this, maybe now we can just call it a draw?”
I do not like my Lisa Vanderpump fighting with my Eileen Davidson. Unequivocally my two favorite Housewives, I demand they become friends. Eileen is my Spirit Housewife, but Lisa is the Top Seat in my Fantasy Housewife League. I don’t have time for all the over-analyzing required of choosing sides. I blame Erika Jayne-Giradi and by default Yolanda for this. Erika had an extremely brief moment in the sun, didn’t she?
Debra asks Kathryn why she told Lisa Vanderpump what Erika Girardi said. “I’m an honest person,” says Kathryn. “I get thrown under the bus if I don’t say something cause we all know the truth comes to the surface. I met them both at the same time. I’m not shady. I’ll say it to your face.”
Next month Kim Richards will be back on reality TV with a new show The Mother/Daughter Experiment. Kim stars alongside her daughter, Kimberly Jackson, and a slew of other tumultuous mother/daughter pairs, to deal with their relationship issues. Don’t even bother asking if we’re recapping this because duh – of course we are! #GluttonsForPunishment #MasochistBloggers
In a new preview, Kim and Kimberly attend a therapy session where they watch and respond to taped one-on-one segments about their relationship.
