BethennyFrankel turned the tables on Andy Cohen for a special segment of Watch What Happens Live. He dished on casting mistakes he’s made, which franchise has the most behind-the-scenes drama, whose fans he worries about burning down his house, and more.
Bethenny asked Andy, thinking back to the first season of Real Housewives of Orange County, did he think it would be as big as it is today. He said the possibility hit him in season two when Matt and Jeana Keough‘s marriage fell apart. “I was like, this is like a soap opera. Like, I care about Jeana, and things are not going well for her.”
On reality TV being blamed for the demise of so many marriages, Andy shared, “I think it has accelerated marriages that weren’t working. I’ve talked to Tamra [Judge] about this. I’ve talked to Vicki [Gunvalson] about this. They were in a relationship that wasn’t working. They saw it replayed on TV, and were like, ‘Wow, this is really bad.’ They had a chorus of people saying ‘dump him, dump him’ and they actually had the balls to do it.”
If one boob job is good, five are better! At least that’s what Real Housewives of Orange County’sTamra Judge thinks. Having recently gone through her fifth breast surgery, Tamra dishes about the long and winding road that’s brought her, and her “girls,” to where she is today. Claiming she has no regrets about any of her plastic surgeries, Tamra says, “It is what it is. It’s a personal choice and for me. I don’t do it for the public or my husband. It’s something you do to make yourself feel better.”
Tamra went through her first breast augmentation surgery after she had her first child because she “just wanted a little perk.” That little perk turned into four more surgeries down the road – to augment, reduce, and augment again! “Then I got them done after my third kid. I thought that instead of getting a lift, I’d fill in the extra skin,” says Tamra. “That was a big mistake because then they were too big.” She went on to get the implant size reduced, but viewers of RHOCmay remember Tamra actually having her implants fully removed 3 years ago post-divorce in order to feel like “her” again. That’s not where the story ends, though, as Tamra has since put those suckers right back in. Guess we’re all in for a “new and 5th-time improved Tamra” on the upcoming RHOC season!
Brandi Glanville is annoyed that her TMI got more attention than her wine – for once! The Unfiltered Blonde, who now helms her own chardonnay by the same name, complained that In Touch Weekly published her unfiltered confession about how she still has the underwear she lost her virginity in, instead of focusing on her wine!
Yolanda Foster continues her battle against chronic Lyme disease. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared two new photos on Instagram, earning our second Wordless Wednesday post. Above: “When Love is Real it finds its way…. #ThroughTheDarkestDays #Loyalty My Love @officialdfoster.”
Are you familiar with #ChalkTalk? The backstory: Eddie Cibrian gave LeAnn Rimes a chalkboard for Valentine’s Day. Nearly every day, LeAnn scribbles the date, a funny or inspirational quote, and the weather forecast on it, and then she shares a picture of her masterpiece on Instagram. It is weirdly entertaining.
Three months later, #ChalkTalk is still going strong.
Over the weekend, Brandi Glanville was bored and/or annoyed by Eddie and LeAnn‘s adorable vacation pics, so she shared her own #ChalkTalk on Twitter. “I feel left out of chalk talk,” she tweeted, “so I am going to start posting some of my favorite lyrics plus a few original Brandism’s.” Check out #ChalkTalk below.
