What's better than housewife has beens when it comes to rating gold on Watch What Happens Live? That's right…house-husbands! When two former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars appeared in Andy Cohen's clubhouse, the ladies garnered the talk show's second highest ratings for the year thus far…and no one even had to tug a wig!
When Kim Zolciak was a guest on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week we noted that she was very reserved and not her normal sass-talking self. Don't worry, this is not a new, mellow version of Kim that we're seeing. It turns out she just had a lot on her mind…like rough and tumble little boys!
Kim took to Instagram to share this photo of her son KJ, who broke his leg right before she had to leave for NYC!
We were so excited about Kim Zolciak hanging out in the clubhouse tonight on Watch What Happens Live. We thought maybe she would be announcing a new season of Don't Be Tardy. Then we secretly hoped she was going to announce her return to Real Housewives of Atlanta for next season. And one of us may or may not have thought she was going to announce another pregnancy. Sadly, none of the above happened! But she did look good (and I'm not usually dazzled by blingy shoes, but hers were seriously cute), so there's that.
Kim sat down to chat with Andy, along with former Housewife Sheree Whitfield. Andy started right off by asking if they were glad that they didn't have to intermingle with the likes of Kenya Moore. Sheree says "I don't think she's that bad, I think she's good for the show. I will say it's better to watch the trainwreck than to be part of it."
Andy had to ask about the status of She by Sheree: "I have some jewelry but I also have some T-shirts that are still selling, but right now I'm kind of working on a fitness DVD. I actually just taped it about a week ago. I'm really excited about it. That's always been my plan."
Tonight the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta continue their adventure in Mexico. And by "adventure" I mean full-scale bitchtastic meltdown where the currency is not pesos but shade! Led by dictatress Kenya Moore it seems no one will escape the cartel as relationships are put to the ulitmate test.
In case you missed it, last week Porsha Stewart's "bearded" marriage was the topic of discussion as Peter Thomas and Kenya wondered just what happened between her and Kordell. And this week it is Phaedra Parks whose relationship is put under a microscope!
Andy: You're getting a lot of shit on Twitter tonight
Brandi – Am I? Well Twitter can suck it.
Andy announces the poll question (team Lisa or team Brandi) and Brandi snaps "Well I never win and this was like your poll question LAST week, soo… I'm not gonna win". (And she didn't – she got 33%)
The first question for Brandi is wondering why everyone decided to go against Lisa this season? "Because she's perfect. No, I'm kidding. I don't think all of the girls decided to go against her. I think we all had separate issues with her. It felt like when one person opened that door, it was like 'okay we can all do it'. Separately but it is hard to go against her because she is so perfect."
It's a well-established fact that Brandi Glanville never knows when to shut up – add a few glasses of vino to the mix and it's a really dire situation. This Monday, Brandi appeared on WWHL where she complained to her boss Andy Cohen that Vanderpump Rules is "scripted".
Is this what we're calling avant-garde these days? Lady Gaga fancies herself to be on the experimental edge of pop culture and pop music (and having been to one of her concerts, I'd say men dressed in condoms and burning statutes crying blood aren't your typical pop fan fare), and now she's pushing the envelope even more.
That's right. Gaga is supposedly featuring the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in an upcoming video. Perhaps she's more mainstream than she'd like to admit. You know Kyle Richards' is having a field day over this! I can only imagine the title of this song!
After tonight's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville was Andy's guest on Watch What Happens Live. She was initially supposed to be paired up with Denise Richards, but Jenny McCarthy stepped in. We were sort of expecting a dishy episode since Jenny and Brandi are both so outspoken, but it was fairly mild.
Andy kicks things off by showing Brandi a clip of Kenya's slam last night on WWHL. Brandi says, "I agree with her that it was an assholic thing to say. But I still think she needs some..something. The dark dark makeup, it's like really ashy and weird." When Andy says she almost apologized and then took it back, Brandi says "I learned from Vanderpump how to do that".
