Happy weekend y'all! For some of us the hard work never ends…and no, I'm not talking about myself, but rather the busiest woman on the West Coast: Gretchen Rossi! With her tasteful make-up line and stunning handbag line, the woman in front of Slade behind Gretchen Christine rarely has a moment off to relax.
***Spoiler Alert**** If you haven't watched tonight's episode of RHOC, you may not want to read this until you do! Also, please link to us if you use our quotes/transcription from the show, we would do the same for you…
Of course, the buzz of the night was Tamra's treatment of co-star Alexis Bellino. Andy kicks off the show with a call for Tamra (also in the clubhouse tonight is Dr. V from L.A. Shrinks). The caller asks "Did you allow Alexis to come just so you could kick her out?" Tamra explains, "Absolutely not. No, [I let her come] because Vicki and I were trying to rekindle our friendship"
Tamra defends her actions at the party, "I don't feel I treated her poorly that day. I had to be honest with myself and with her. Last time I heard from her, she wanted to sue me. So, then she shows up to my party. So when I said 'I have to ask you why ARE you here?'. (Dr V interjects and says Tamra could've done that before the party) Tamra says "I didn't have that chance, I wanted to make Vicki happy."
Andy kicks off the show asking Porsha how she's doing, "I'm doing alright, I'm here, I'm standing. I'm just being strong right now."
On if she saw the divorce coming, Porsha says, "I was totally blindsided. At the reunion I did feel some kind of way because I did want my husband there with me, but I was standing strong representing for my family. I was a wife, that was my title. That's what I took on and had ownership of."
Porsha then shared how she found out that Kordell filed..and it's crazy! "When I found out about the divorce, it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and I Tweeted 'today is the first day of the rest of your life'. I put the phone down and took a little nap and I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said 'have you heard' and I'm like 'hear what?'." Porsha went back on Twitter and says the first thing she saw was "Kordell is divorcing Porsha". Porsha admits she thought it was a crazy joke. Can you imagine finding that out with your husband just hanging out in the other room?
While Kandi is suing her former friend and Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star over the song Don't Be Tardy for the Party, Kim may be having the last laugh over whose spin-off is garnering the most attention. Viewers were right on time for the premiere of season two of Kim's Don't Be Tardy show, while last week no one seemed to want to party atThe Kandi Factory. I wonder how Kim will feel to learn that this week she actually gave her new nemesis' show a boost?
As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
On last night's Watch What Happens Live, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Camille Grammer graced Andy Cohen with her presence in the clubhouse. Joining her was rocker – and Ashlee Simpson ex – Pete Wentz, who will be hosting a new tattoo competition show on Oxygen. Andy addresses the tragedy in Boston, and declares it a night where everyone needs a drink. That said, there is no drinking game word…you just drink when the word "Drink" flashes across the screen. Seems easy enough for me! The bartender is the guy who designed the logo that is Andy's face which can be found on most of the Mazel products.
Andy opens the vault to reveal two clips of Camille scantily dressed and dancing on '90's late night shows. She admits to having a breast reduction since those glory days. My, my, my! Those are some jugs. Pete compliments the current state of Camille's rack. The poll question involves Real Housewives of Orange County, and Andy wonders if Briana had the right to ban Brooks Ayers from her mother's house.
Andy Cohen makes my heart smile. He does. I think he's honest and funny, and he seems like one of those celebrities that if you approached him at McDonald's, he'd be totally friendly and let you take a picture with him. In my VERY limited experience, those celebrities are few and far between. Terry O' Quinn (John Locke from Lost) is on the nice list. A certain "Show me the money!" Oscar winner who filmed a straight to video flick in my college town after said Oscar win…not so much. Basically, I heart Andy and have aspirations of being the bartender in theWatch What Happens Liveclubhouse. Too much to ask?
The Kind of Bravo recently did a book signing at Georgia Tech in Atlanta for his memoir Most Talkative. While there, he answered questions about gay people on television and his love life. Andy also plays a fabulous round of Marry, Shag, Kill. He's awesome.
Kandi has the ability to make fun of herself and tell it like it is without being catty while throwing other people under the bus. It's no surprise that Kandi has a lot of opinions on her co-starKim Zolciakand the lawsuit brewing between them regarding Don't Be Tardy for the Party. However, Kandi is able to express her feelings without the cattiness that often rears its ugly head when stars are getting buzzed in the clubhouse.
