Things aren’t looking up for Tom Girardi. And they certainly aren’t looking up for his soon-to-be-ex wife Erika Jayne. No matter how much she tries to ignore it. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been embroiled in multiple court cases thanks to Tom’s inability not to steal money from clients. Allegedly. The fall from grace has been somewhat epic, as Erika once fancied herself flying to “singing” appearances on a private plane. Now, she would be lucky to get an Uber to the supermarket.
At least Erika has somewhere to live, for now. Poor old Tom has been holed up in the Pasadena Palace he once shared with Erika, living alone amid a declining mental state and other health concerns. Oddly enough, no one ever speculated about Tom’s health when he ALLEGEDLY defrauded victims he represented and a boat load of creditors he didn’t pay until he got caught. Tom’s assets are as inherently cold as Erika’s heart and he’s since been targeted for eviction. Now Tom’s brother and conservator begs the courts to let him stay in the mansion. I guess Motel 6 has no vacancies.
This season, Southern Charm gave viewers lessons on how to handle situations poorly. The show was a hotbed of controversy with people who don’t know how to conduct themselves in polite society. Thank goodness Shep Rose wrote a book to provide guidelines we should all be following to achieve success. And if you believe that, Pat Altschul has a lovely
Ravenel bridge she would like to sell you. Fans went on a whirlwind journey dealing with a multitude of sensitive topics.
At least we were finally introduced to new faces. Successful business owner Leva Bonaparte. Potato chip guy John Pringle and his beard. And Madison LeCroy – hairstylist, Austen Kroll handler, and mom of one came on board full time. ‘Ol Mads has been in the media a lot lately, perhaps you have read about her entanglement with several men of an athletic nature. You might be under the impression Madison thinks very highly of herself, and that might actually be true – but it took some nips and tucks to get there.
By all accounts, the Season 11 premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the one to watch. I feel like it has been approximately 3 years since we last visited the loving family of Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Our very own Margaret Josephs is returning with an all new
face look. Jennifer Aydin is coming back to make you feel bad about your sad home with only two bathrooms, and Dolores Catania will continue to co-sign everything that comes out of Teresa’s mouth.
In the past Teresa has been known for her somewhat… aggressive attitude. Basically it’s Teresa’s way or the highway and if you’re not on board, good luck. Perhaps Tre’s negativity could have been due in part to her jail sentence, her ex-husband’s deportation, or the loss of her parents. But someone turned Teresa’s frown upside down and his name is Louie Ruelas. Now Jackie Goldschneider hopes Teresa will be too distracted by Louie’s
wallet love to come after her.
Before Bravo made reality stars out of people who don’t actually live in reality, the ladies featured on our shows had to pay the bills. Some of them were still on their first faces and first marriages. Quite a few of them were dipping their toes in the world of acting. The women on Real Housewives of Atlanta all come from various entertainment backgrounds and had pretty close encounters with fame.
Kandi Burruss is probably the most successful businesswoman currently on the show. Back in the 90’s Kandi’s group Xscape was a thing, and there was a time when nothing but TLC songs Kandi wrote played on the local radio station. Obviously Cynthia Bailey was one of the first mainstream Black models and opened the door during a time when women of color were not highlighted on magazine covers. And then we have Kenya Moore. Back in
the stone ages 1993, Kenya won the Miss America USA title and managed to receive some onset accolades from a VERY famous diva. Spoiler alert, Kenya was terrified of her.
Oh come on, don’t act like you haven’t done this before! Madison LeCroy must be feeling “tension” aimed at her after this season of Southern Charm. Lots of folks are feeling some type of way about Madison because she was a big ‘ol meany pants to Austen Kroll and she may or may not have a penchant for athletes.
On the bright side, at least Madison’s scandals don’t involve racism (at this point) and people aren’t trying to hold her accountable for being either tone deaf or ignorant. That happened to poor Kathryn Dennis, the victim of systematic bullying after being called out for an incredibly insensitive text exchange with a Black woman. Hopefully Kathryn will somehow make it through these trying times. If Kathryn’s “mistake” was on one end of the spectrum, Madison’s latest guffaw is certainly on another. Sometimes people make separate social media accounts to comment on something and conceal their identity at the same time. And sometimes people forget to switch to their fake account before posting.
Real Housewives of New York will probably have somewhat of a choppy season. Thanks to Covid, normal filming has been interrupted twice because of the stupid, nasty pandemic. This virus simply refuses to go away no matter how many people ignore basic safety precautions. The nerve. It’s almost as if a disease that’s contagious keeps spreading to others on purpose or something.
Well some people absolutely refuse to have their lives dictated by an entity they cannot see. Former nurse Luann de Lesseps had no issue traveling to Florida while RHONY was taking a break. Though she was photographed without wearing PPE, it means absolutely nothing because according to Luann, “proper precautions” were taken. THANK GOODNESS. But Lu isn’t the only one not letting the germy infections get her down. Corona Singer, sorry, I mean Ramona Singer took a little jaunt as well.
Pretty much everyone is familiar with Wendy Williams. Even if you don’t watch her show, her antics have been splashed across the media. She had a messy divorce. She passed out on live television. And she’s big on spreading gossip. In theory, her background sounds like a Housewife resume. All she really needs is an enormous fraud case to seal the deal.
Since Wendy already has the qualifications and she is currently on Andy Cohen’s good side, has the time come for her to test her chops on a show? Real Housewives of Miami is looking like it will get another shot and producers are allegedly narrowing down cast for the 305. We may get Marysol Patton back. Perhaps Adriana de Moura. Now we’re hearing we may get Wendy too. Someone needs to go check on NeNe Leakes because she’s about to have a real bad day.
Bienvenida a Miami and can I just say, FINALLY! It looks like Bravo is in talks to breathe new life into Real Housewives of Miami. RHOM used to be a thing but if you blinked, you missed it. The show was born in 2011 and introduced us to a few names we still hear about now and then. Most recently, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps caught some flack about hanging out with Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria. Miami alum Lisa Hochstein was in the news for racking up some fines after partying during the pandemic
Miami came to an end in 2013 for reasons we really don’t know. Andy Cohen implied it was due to the death of Marysol’s mother, Mama Elsa. He also said ratings had dropped off towards the end of the third season, so it was given the axe. Thankfully, reboots have become a thing and Miami could get another shot. Word on the street is Bravo is bringing back the franchise and returning us to palm trees and blue seas. But, will this be like re-gifting or getting a whole new present?
