Don’t you miss Southern Charm? I got hooked on the show last year during Season 5-and then watched every episode from Season 1 on. Sometimes more than once, which I almost never do. Who would think a bunch of privileged Charleston residents could be so interesting?
Most of the success of the show lies with the brilliant casting. From 20-something Kathryn Dennis to in her late 70’s Patricia Altschul, there is someone for almost everyone to identify with. And the ringleader of the show is none other than almost middle-aged Shep Rose. Who is usually ready to offer his unsolicited advice on how others should behave. Unfortunately, Shep sometimes does not follow his own advice. And now, he has gotten himself into a bit of hot water over some unseemly behavior at a golf tournament.
Tired of Katie’s controlling behavior, Tom 1confronted her in the back alley of SUR and called her a bully. Of course, Katie didn’t own up to it. She deflected and cried tears of guilt instead. Scheana Marieone of Katie’s former victims spoke out recently on her feelings regarding Katie’s behavior.
And, then there’s Ramona Singer, who Luann is on bad terms with every other season. It’s tradition at this point. This time around, Lu has a lot of support. At this point in the season, she has Bethenny Frankeland the new girl Barbara Kavovitas her post-rehab ride or dies. Barbara even went so far as to disinvite Ramona and Dorinda from her party just to make sure Luann was comfortable. She may not be a full-time cast member, but she is proving herself to be a loyal soldier friend to Luann!
The two decided to hold a screaming match right in front of SUR which is always a good look for a restaurant. But maybe it’s to be expected in SUR. Half the staff has not outgrown the temper-tantrum phase. Only instead of throwing themselves on the ground, kicking and screaming, they waive their cigarettes around and drunkenly cuss out the mangers. I see you Kristen Doute.
On the last episode of Married At First Sight, decision day is less than one week away and the couples are still stuck at the second honeymoon from hell with AJ Vollmoeller. Things get tense when Kate Sisk reveals to Luke Cuccurullo, she not only told one expert, but another cast-mate about their secret sex life. Will her fantasy of a happy marriage end tonight or will she continue to be used and hurt?
The men are cooking for the women and there is only one man missing… Will Guess. He is missing all the fun, sleeping away the crazy from the night before. Jasmine McGriff, of course, had to go wake him up because she didn’t want her man to havepeace miss the fun. Jasmine confides with the ladies that at times she feels like Will can be cold. Stephanie Sersen shares she doesn’t know if her decision should be based on the future or the past month. We have all seen him go off on her just about every week. If he acts that way in front of the cameras, Steph needs to RUN before the cameras disappear.
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has, by now, told about 15 renditions of her involvement/non-involvement in DogGate. In each version, she becomes increasingly naive and played for a fool. Also each time one of her versions doesn’t coincide with the revision, the other women conveniently brush it aside and double-down on the narrative that Teddi is the victim. Or Dorit Kemsley is. Really?
For instance tonight Teddi told her therapist she never spoke directly to Lisa about Doggate (Why are we still talking about this?!), then told Dorit and the other women that she was on a three-way call with Lisa and John Sessa which proves LVP is directly involved. Isn’t the whole point of Teddi’s argument that LVP isn’t owning her part and wants to frame Teddi? Well, it sounds like Teddi is doing the same exact thing!
This season on Vanderpump Rules, Lala Kenttook the girls to Solvang for wine tours (on a private jet, of course). The only surprising part of the trip is that Lala is the one who planned the trip, yet she was sober the entire time. Why plan a wine tasting if you are not going to sip the wine? Maybe do a different activity instead?
At the time, she claimed that she and Randall Emmett made a pact to stay sober after she got wasted and broke a hurricane-proof window. Recently, she confessed that the severity of the situation goes far beyond one drunken night.
