After calling out Lisa for regretting to her painting party at the last minute, Yolanda feels the need to defend herself after what happened in Andy Cohen's clubhouse last week. She begins, 'First, I wanted to clear up Brandi's jab at me with her tweet while I was on WWHL saying I cancelled dinner plans with her. It surprised me because it would have been justified if I had been a hypocrite and cancelled plans with her and instead taken a business meeting that was more important — but that’s absolutely not what happened! I cancelled because I was dealing with my crying child across the country in NY who was just diagnosed with a disease we were trying to figure out. This is something I shared with B in good faith — but not something I wanted to share with all of you because that’s my daughter’s privacy. But since Brandi brought it up on national TV, I feel I have to clarify the situation."
If you think Bravo will shy away from showing the trials and tribulations of Teresa Giudice's federal fraud case in the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, guess again. Andy Cohen opened up about Teresa, Taylor and all things reality TV in a new interview with TV Guide. He swears the Housewives franchise will be around for a long time to come.
First, Andy talked about what it's like no longer being an big wig executive at Bravo, "I believe it was January 3 when I woke up and for the first time in my life I didn't have a boss. So it's great. I'm continuing to host specials for Bravo, which I love doing. And I'm still an executive producer of all the Real Housewives shows."
When asked if it's because nobody else wanted that job, he shared, "No, quite the contrary! I wanted to and I believe that this franchise can go and go and go if we treat it delicately and properly. We're seeing with Real Housewives of Atlanta record numbers of any season ever. I care about it a lot."
During an appearance on WWHL, a caller asked Lisa if she thinks she mothers Brandi like she does the Sur staff. Lisa confessed, "Guilty as charged. Absolutely. I do feel Brandi was struggling and I really wanted to help her because I loved her."
Andy asked Lisa if she knew it was bugging Brandi, "I did eventually. That's why I kind of backed off because I thought I was damned either way. But I did really care about her."
Breaking news! Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor was spotted wearing a sweater! Kristen Doute and Tom Sandoval are in a healthy, thriving relationship! Okay, so maybe one of those statements is true, but really, how shocking is it to see Jax sporting a chunky cardigan?
Stassi Schroeder's ex is doing his best to move on while his former (I'm guessing from the previews of next week's episode) friend and his lady are bucking everyone's advice and opinions by staying in a co-dependent, tension filled relationship built on lies and distrust. Good times at SUR, right?
Let's jump right in and get the absolute worst of it out of the way. Andy insisted on rehashing the stripper drama. Of course. We saw it all play out on TV – a penis (not Eddie's) in Tamra's ear and a boob (not Tamra's) in Eddie's mouth – and my eyeballs will never be the same.
Andy begged for all the tacky(Tamra's specialty) details.
Eddie said he was "blown away" over the penis to his wife-to-be's ear. Tamra shrugged it off, saying she certainly didn't enjoy it, unlike Eddie in Vegas. I refuse to talk about Eddie's boner again. Let's just say that Tamra's opinion of the incident definitely has not changed.
Danielle Staub stopped by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse tonight to dish with Andy Cohen and it was almost as good as if Kim Granatell was on! Danielle shared her love for Teresa Giudice, her loathing of the other housewives, including sharing just how Melissa Gorga landed a spot on the show! Danielle also shared that she's shooting a new reality show!
Andy kicked off the show irritating Danielle by mentioning Kim G. Trust us, we know how much she despises Kim G. Danielle blocked us on Twitter for just for saying we wished that Danielle and Kim G would be on a show together. We meant it to be fun but she wasn't having it.
Her thoughts on Teresa's federal indictment charges: "I feel bad for them. They're people, they're family and you know things that are very bad are happening to them, so it would be really wrong of anyone to enjoy that."
Melissa Gorga hasn't commented onTeresa Giudice's indictment situation, but tonight on WWHL she declared that she's got Teresa's back and that the kids are the #1 priority. Melissa also claimed that no one believes the cheating allegations Jan is accusing her of next week, so she doesn't want to give it attention.
Melissa on the Real Housewives of New Jersey family retreat: "It was so stressful. we went from rock bottom to hugging it out to drinking. I was so relieved that it was better. I feel like we are better together and I fee like everyone likes to see us together anyway. It's just more fun. It's better, it's easy. We have a lot in common, as much as we don't have in common, we have stuff in common as well. We just have a good time together."
While I was excited to tune in to last night's season premiere, it's been evident from the promos that Josh Altman's story line is going to revolve around getting engaged to girlfriend and Madison Hildebrand defector Heather Bilyeu. She's now Mauricio's right hand girl…I wonder how Splits feels about that! That said, it came as no shock to find out that Josh did finally get down on one knee (metaphorically speaking, I assume…he'd never want to get his pants dirty).
