We all saw Adrienne and Paul go head-to-head on the RHOBH. They were often seen bickering and Adrienne was also degrading to Paul most of the time. (If you ask me.)
After their tumultuous divorce, Adrienne was seen around town with quite a slew of boy toys including Sean Stewart, who was more than 20 years her junior. Now it seems that it is Paul's turn for romance.
Y'all, I'm having an off week. It's the only way to explain my utter shock when watching a preview clip for Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow's new plastic surgery show. I've read about it. Hell, I've written about it! It's titled BOTCHED for crying out loud! I can't exactly say I didn't know the premise of the pair's new endeavor!
Alas, my tolerance for creepy isn't what it used to be in my younger days, and I could barely stomach the bad plastic surgery. How does this even happen? I am sure the stories will be sad and the Bravolebrities past and present will nip, tuck, and repair these folks, resulting in a heartwarming and tearful reveal, but yikes! I guess I didn't realize how many ladies (and gents!) out there actually strive to look like a feline! Although now that you mention it, Adrienne Maloof WAS married to Paul…
That said, I will certainly be watching Botched when it premieres on E! later this month. I may be watching with one hand over my eyes, but I'll be watching nonetheless!
I swear, if they're not arguing about chairs, the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County can find something equally as benign to bitch about–like gym promotions! Look, I understand why Tamra Judge wanted to be mad at Heather Dubrow for not offering up a CUT Fitness segment on her previous stint as a guest host on Good Day LA, but I don't really think that Heather had any pull regarding the situation. I'm not even a Heather fan this season (what happened?!?), but both women agree that Heather called her to fill her in on the situation when it happened, and Heather tried to rectify things–and promote CUT!–when given the opportunity. These women will complain about anything…and try to stir up drama at every turn. Lizzie Rovsek clearly learned that from watching past seasons…what was she trying to pull on Monday's episode?
Taking to her Bravo blog, Tamra begins, "Good Day L.A…. Let me tell you why I was so upset since you did not hear the whole story. Last summer I got a text from Heather saying she was going to co-host GDLA and wanted me to know that GDLA was bringing on another fitness studio and she had NOTHING to do with it. I said 'No worries' and thanked her for letting me know. I know there are a lot of gyms/fitness studios out there. A week later I see the segment on GDLA and they have the fitness studio SHE works out at (50 miles away from GDLA studio), HER chef and HER clothier on the same segment. So I thought to myself, 'REALLY, Heather, you had NO input, however all the guests were people you deal with directly?' My feelings were hurt!"
I believe Heather pitched CUT for Good Day L.A. because she wanted to, not because she was trying to right a wrong, and she seemed genuinely excited to share the news with Tamra and Eddie. Too bad Tamra is an ungrateful shrew. By making such a big deal about a competing gym being mentioned on Good Day L.A., she gave it even more press through Real Housewives of Orange County. Since Bravo showed a clip of the Good Day L.A. segment we all know the name of the gym as well. Tamra isn't too bright.
Heather took to her Bravo blog to discuss the drama surrounding Tamra and Shannon and to discuss Vicki Gunvalson's claim that she faked the perfectly timed phone call from her son. Perfectly timed, as in gave her an excuse to flee the party, not 10:30. Because, I'm not sure if you heard, but it was 10:30 when the call took place. If they said that one… more… time…
Well, it's about damn time! I was starting to wonder if we'd ever meet the elusive Lizzie Rovsek, but finally she made an appearance on Monday's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. I wasn't expecting much, but I loved the way she held her own with the other women. Lizzie even impressed the walking thesaurus and the fitness maven in one fell swoop! She commemorates her inaugural episode in her first ever Bravo blog.
Of her grand, yet clumsy, entrance (a girl after my own heart!) begins, "'Here I am!!!' I definitely wanted to make an impression on my first episode, but falling to the ground at my first party was not my intention. I can blame that on the new pair of platform heels I had on, nerves, or maybe it was that little step down out the patio door at Danielle's house…Ahhhhh, but in any case I hope it shows all of you how real I am. We all fall down now and then, no biggie, shake it off and move on. I was worried how I might appear on the show, but as a whole, you just met Lizzie–and it's pretty close to form. I'm a friendly, happy, outgoing person, self-deprecating at times and a little sarcastic. As you get to know me more as the season continues, I hope you see in me my honest heart and genuine spirit."
See what Gretchen Rossi, Kim Kardashian, Joanna Krupa and other reality stars are to this week in our photo gallery.
The photo above (and one in the gallery) of Kim Zolciak is from February, but we stumbled on it this week and they were too fun not to share. All that's missing is a lit ciggy hanging from her mouth and this photo would be Peg Bundy perfection.
Also spotted: Kim Kardashian attended a political event with sister Kourtney. Kendra spent some time with her family (on the red carpet) and Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed some time with Nikki Ferrell. And Bethenny Frankel ran errands in NYC.
Season 9 kicks off April 14th. Friendships are put to the test, says Bravo, when the "quirky yet fearless" Shannon Beador and "opinionated beauty queen" Lizzie Rovsek blast onto the scene with fresh attitudes and bold opinions. The line for the Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow pity party forms to the right, my friends. See ya on the left - I'm excited for new blood.
Meet Shannon and Lizzie, as well as a new friend of the housewivesDanielle Gregorio, and check out Real Housewives of Orange County's trailer and cast photos below.
