Happy Friday the 13th! It’s time to see what our favorite reality TV people have been up to when they’re not gracing us with their on-screen presence. Ariana Madix headed to Kentucky with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylorfor the 6th Annual Fillies & Stallions Kentucky Derby party.
Also getting fancy for a formal event: Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky. They, along with Faye Resnick, Kathy Hilton and Paris Hilton, attended the AltaMed Power Up, We Are The Future Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons.
Don’t be alarmed. Tom 1 and Ariana are still happily adulting together. The Vanderpump Rules stars stepped out last night for an OK! Magazine party, but posed separately on the red carpet. Ariana Madix opted to show off her other date for the night – her brother.
Also in attendance at the party wasJenelle Evans – who is supposedly in L.A. to seek help in figuring out her crippling health issues. Looks like she was feeling okay enough to hit the red carpet with her newest boyfriend, David Eason.

Melissa Gorga was spotted outside of her Envy by Melissa Gorgaboutique this week. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star announced yesterday that her store is now open – just in time for Christmas shopping.
It’s been a while since Evelyn Lozada has been a regular on Basketball Wives, but she has made a cameo appearance this last season, leaving everyone thinking that things were just fine between her and the rest of the ladies. After all, she is busy with her son and her new show, so she doesn’t have as much time for the dramatics. Or at least we would think so. But rumor has it that is not true – or at least according to Tami Roman.
What? The ladies, who have had their share of ups and down, but always ended up friends, seem to be having some sort of beef. At least, that is what Tami Roman said recently when asked about her relationship with Evelyn. What’s more is that Tami insisted she has no clue what Lozada’s beef with her could be Hmm….

Boss Jackie Christie has alienated almost every co-star on Basketball Wives LA, but Draya Michele isn’t far behind when it comes to upsetting friends. After Jackie and Brandi Maxiell’s explosive French fry altercation, the women were back last night to instigate more drama. Bring on dodge ball! The episode begins with Brandi meeting up with Mehgan Jones after their brawl in Santa Barbara. The two ladies have forgotten their smack down, and are instead blaming Jackie for all of their issues. As to whether Jackie is still hosting a cancer event to celebrate Brandi…that’s still up in the air! Brandi and Mehgan seem to have forgotten their punching match a few weeks earlier in lieu of bonding over how much they dislike Jackie.
Meanwhile, Jackie is recapping the insanity differently by sharing with Shaunie O’Neal that her latest experience with Mehgan who renders the suggestion that everyone bring tennis shoes? For fighting? Nostrils tempers that the tennis shoes were probably an invitation to exercise. Mehgan is meeting with Malaysia Pargo and Angel Brinks, and she reveals that she wants to unleash her anger on Jackie by hosting a dodge ball tournament. That’s much kinder than I expected.
I think we all can agree that it’s not a party in Santa Barbara until Jackie Christie has bandaged her tongue and Shaunie O’Neal arrives. We learn something each week on Basketball Wives: LA, don’t we? She arrives right after the fight between Mehgan James and Brandi Maxiell. At least Brandi, Mehgan, and Malaysia Pargo are able to sit civilly in the kitchen as they rehash the brawl. Shaunie questions Jackie’s drinking, and Jackie goes off on Draya Michele for being mean to Mehgan.
Shaunie, Malaysia, and Brandi retire to a bedroom to further discuss the fight as Meghan and Draya bond over the realization of Jackie’s craziness. Jackie resurfaces to scream about what a great friend she is to Mehgan. With a manicured nail in Mehgan’s face, Jackie swears she had her back before totally losing it. Mehgan grabs a water bottle to launch at Jackie, and Jackie returns the favor by spitting on her. Nostrils is appalled. It’s one thing to punch somebody, but it’s quite another to be trashy and spit. Jackie packs her bags and calls Doug. He needs to take out bail money if anyone else comes after her. Mehgan feels badly for Doug, citing that he’s probably been with someone else because he couldn’t be faithful to the crazy.
And so begins the downfall of Draya Michele. Last night’s Basketball Wives LA centered on a girls’ trip helmed by Brandi Maxiell to Santa Barbara. Why, after so, so, so many times of going on these mini-vacays, a knock-down-drag-out fight ensuing, and the inevitable dread that comes from rehashing said trip at the reunion, do these women think this time will be different? Jackie Christie is stirring the pot as fast as she can, and even the girls who vowed to dislike her forever believe every word that comes out of her exaggerating mouth. It’s comedy gold.
In an effort to bring Angel Brinks into the mix, Draya has invited her to come along as someone who can save her from her friends’ drama. Angel is like a mini-Kardashian, and Draya wants to give her the low down on the ladies with whom they will be traveling. She shares that Shaunie O’Neal isn’t keen on strangers infiltrating their group even though Shaunie herself is considered a newbie according to Draya. Next, Draya mean girls Mehgan James. Angel can’t wait for the weekend!
Basketball Wives LA has transformed into a ridiculous reunion by women who once claimed they never wanted to be part of the show. If this is their plan to redeem themselves from bad behaviors of the past, they are going about it all wrong! Shaunie O’Neal made her crossover last week, but last night’s episode included a cameo by Evelyn Lozada and the arrival of Tami Roman.
The night unfolds with with MehganJames continuing to scream at Draya Michele for the FUPA comment in Jackie Christie’s cognac commercial. Draya stays calm, claiming that she just wanted to spare the newbie from looking badly in the video. After the viewing, Draya remains quiet as Brandi Maxiell, Malaysia Pargo, and Patrice Curry fight her battle. When Mehgan tries to bring Jackie into the argument, Jackie reminds Mehgan that she was the star of beautiful cognac commercial debut and she’s not about to speak out of turn in the silly FRUPA (no R!) battle. Shaunie swoops in to see why the girls are ganging up on Mehgan, and Draya exits with an eye roll. Malaysia dismisses the newbie as Mehgan shows her lack of FUPA to the group, and Jackie is appalled when Meghan ducks out of the debut party without saying good-bye…or thank you.
