Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Good news – maybe?! – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already been renewed. Bad news – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast won’t change much for season seven. Why can’t we have nice things?

Earlier today, Bravo announced the six new and fourteen returning shows that will fill its summer and fall schedules. Obviously, RHOBH is on the list for fall. It will be a while before the cast is set in stone and revealed; however, when a fan tweeted @ Andy Cohen that Lisa Rinna, Yolanda Foster, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson must go, he replied, “No way!”

Are y’all still with me? If you haven’t taken a sledgehammer to your phone/tablet/computer because of Andy‘s bad judgement Tweet, look below to find out what other questionable choices goodies Bravo has in store for viewers.

It’s hot photo Friday! Above:  Sonja Morgan performed a caburlesque act (as Marilyn Monroe) for Watch What Happens Live producer Anthony Lella’s 30th birthday that was attended by Andy Cohen at SONO in Greenwich Village. 

The 2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala was held in NYC and attended by Fredrik Eklund, Brad Goreski, Luann de Lesseps, NeNe Leakes, Kelly Bensimon, Sonja Morgan, Heidi Klum and Andy Cohen (who was honored at the event). 

Also spotted: Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian stopping by the DASH store.  And NeNe Leakes out and about in NYC.  NeNe was in town to co-host Live with Kelly and Michael today and was spotted filming segments throughout the week (not so “Live”).  She revealed on the show this morning that she’s doing a 30 day cleanse that includes no alcohol, bread and more.

Celebrity Sightings In Miami - February 8, 2015

Bethenny Frankel’s Real Housewives of New York co-stars Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan aren’t the only ones showing off their bikini bodies this week!  Bethenny hit the beach in Miami (again!) with daughter Bryn and showed off her navy and white two piece suit. 

Also on vacation in Miami and showing off a summer-ready bikini bod: Padma Lakshmi!  Both women are spending some time on Miami beach, escaping the oppressing cold and snow of New York City!  See all the photos below.

Y’all know I love my trashy, hair-pulling, scotch swilling, spandex wearing, bartender STD spreading, limo riding, funeral home owning, Hermes wearing, polygamous, tax evading reality stars as much as the next person (okay, more…much more), but it’s not my favorite reality genre. Weird, right?  Sometimes, I don’t want drama. I want food porn, and if it happens to come with a side of Curtis Stone, so be it.

Top Chef is my all time favorite Bravo creation. Give me Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, an insane Quick Fire, and throw in Hugh Acheson’s eyebrows every now and again, and I am one happy gal. Even with twelve seasons under its belt, the franchise always manages to delight with colorful characters and creative challenges that leave me wishing I could prepare uni and sweetbreads as part of my daily diet.
