So apparently I wasn't the only one watching Bravo's newest reality show Newlyweds: The First Year. I had 999,999 of my closest friends watching with me…give or take a few!
The series, which follows four couples through their first year of marriage, premiered on Monday night with three of the four pairs saying their "I dos" in lavish ceremonies. The show promises to document the ups and downs of family, finances, sex, and the major adjustment that is the first year of marriage.
Gretchen recently told KTLA that if she had to go back in time she would pass on signing up for the reality show that made Gretchen Christine Empires available to the world. Gretchen says "100% I wouldn't" sign on again. "From the outside when you first start you think it's gonna be a bowl of cherries, and it's not."
"It's really tough and to have so many people scrutinize every little aspect of your life and have such strong opinions," Gretchen elaborates. "There's haters and people tweeting you now and with all the social media people can have such quick access to you."
Things begin with Heather Dubrow and Tamra Barney meeting Lydia for lunch. Heather and Tamra are just… I dunno… their dynamic is forced to me. Maybe it's because Heather exists with this perma-bemused expression on her face and Tamra is always working too hard to seem acerbic and unaffected. In short – stop putting on airs.
They quiz Lydia on her relationship with Alexis Bellino. Which was the whole purpose of this awkward lunch; to size up Lydia and see if she was worthy of attending to. Lydia was wearing a Pretty, Pretty Princess tiara and giggling about fairy dust and oh yeah like Alexis is like so like super weird and she like changes her story like so much cause like one minute she's crying her fake eyelashes off and leaking tears of silicone over bullying and the next minute she's like a smoking rage-filled plasticine bitch ranting about how she needs to forgive cause like Jesus exists, but we're totally friends! I was confused.
Yesterday we received exclusive information that Dr. Dubrow is being accused of performing a botched surgery on a fitness/swimsuit model to repair her belly button after she suffered an umbilical hernia. Unfortunately the surgery was not a success and in addition the victim believes Dr. Dubrow unfairly charged her insurance company for the procedure despite her dissatisfaction!
This is not the first time Dr. Dubrow has been sued for malpractice. Before anyone gets their panties in a wad, this happens all the time with plastic surgeons when recipients are unhappy or wanted perhaps unrealistic results. Dr. Dubrow is currently board certified.
Below is information the source exclusively shared with us:
Tamra Barney has never been one to hold her tongue, and she's not going to win any awards for couth. I certainly don't see her leading any sensitivity training seminars any time soon either! The Real Housewives of Orange County star's mouth is always getting her in trouble, and most of the time she couldn't care less.
Now, however, Tamra is speaking out about a little incident on a recent episode where she was bleeped by the network…for something she never wanted to air in the first place! Oh gracious, Tamra. What now?
Gretchen and her sidekick (aka fiance) Slade Smiley headed up to Vegas for a little fun. The reality stars were at the grand opening of Sapphire Pool & Day Club at Sapphire Las Vegas. I hope she hung on to that giant rock (aka engagement ring) for dear life when (if) she was in the pool!
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF GRETCHEN'S WHITE BIKINI?
"RHOC is a television show meant to entertain," Heather reminds fans. "An interesting part of the show is the interaction between the cast and viewers via social media. Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have become an intrinsic part of the show and so have viewers comments."
In a new Bravo blog, Briana explains this perspective and insists Brooks is up to no good, but that she also questions him around her son Troy. Interesting!
"While I was pregnant, Ryan and I were house hunting and put a few offers on homes nearby and came very close to purchasing a home for our family. Ryan got orders to move to another base almost three hours away, so we canceled our house hunt and started brainstorming on our options."
