Thank you, Lala Kent! The Vanderpump Rules star gave us one of the more enjoyable entertainment feuds this year. No, she wasn’t battling with any DJs. Even Raquel Leviss managed to escape Lala’s wrath, this particular time. You might remember Lala’s multi-talented fiance, Randall Emmett, owed some money to a popular entertainer.
The very gracious actor/rapper, 50 Cent, generously loaned Randall $1 million. But paying 50 back wasn’t high on Randall’s agenda, however gifting Lala with various expensive items to keep her around was. Lala has always been vocal about the high dollar presents Randall drops in her lap. Everything from a Range Rover to Gucci slides and PJ rides. Lala was living life in the
mistress fast lane. Until she ran her mouth on camera. 50 wasn’t too jazzed hearing Lala brag about all of the great things Randall was bribing giving her on Pump Rules. Especially when Daddy Chins Randall had an outstanding debt. For all we know, 50 paid for most of Lala’s bragging rites. Anygetrichordietryin, Lala and 50 engaged in a brief social media argument that blessed us with 50’s expert ability to troll. Now, if we’re lucky, 50 is up for round two.
It’s the question that gets posed time and time again to the cast of Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean. Who’s on your yachtie dream-team? For this season, the Med crew was pretty solid after microwave operator Mila Kolomeitseva left. Anastasia Surmava did an admiral job as chef until she stepped aside for Ben Robinson to saunter back into our lives. June Foster only made a favorable impression on smitten Colin Macy O-Toole, but her tenure was also short-lived.
So we are finishing the season with the original squad, plus an actual chef. Captain Sandy Yawn has been dishing out the hugs in proper mother hen fashion. What can be better than that? Well, according to Bosun Joao Franco, there is one person that could improve at their job.
The social media beef between Lala Kent, her fiancé Randall Emmett, and 50 Cent was the feud I never knew I needed. While Randall didn’t actually take part in the public argument, Fofty did share screenshots of their text conversations. Truly legendary.
And Lala had no problem clapping back at the rapper. She treated him like he was Billie Lee in the middle of brunch at Pump. And he shaded her (and Randall) right back. The feud was resolved when 50 got his money. He even removed the social media posts, but those screenshots live will live on forever in infamy.
Tamra Judge has capitalized on Vicki Gunvalson’s (relative) absence during the current Real Housewives of Orange County season. She has thrown her “best friend” under the bus. Yet again.
Tamra claimed that Vicki was the one who revealed the train rumor about Kelly Dodd, giving Kelly even more vitriol against her nemesis. Strangely, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke were present when TAMRA was the one who mentioned the word “train” and explained what it was. Yet here they are going along with the convenient narrative that Vicki brought this up during filming. Vicki has done a lot of terrible things on RHOC, particularly to Kelly, but she didn’t quite pull the trigger on this one. Yes, it was very obvious that she was in on an orchestrated plan to take down Kelly, but there’s more to it than that. Much more, and it’s not just about Tamrat.
On the current Real Housewives of Orange County season, Kelly Dodd is dating Dr. Brian Reagan. After announcing their breakup, accusing Brian of using her publicity, and claiming that he cheated on her, Kelly announced her new relationship thirty seconds later.
She is now dating Fox News anchor Rick Leventhal. They even have wedding plans. Well, she does. He, on the other hand, hasn’t even proposed.
I was shocked to hear the news last week that Project Runway designer Chris March had passed away at the age of 56. He suffered a heart attack on Thursday, September 5th.
A contestant on Season 4 of Project Runway, Chris placed fourth on the show. He was known for his amazing talent for costume design and gifted us with some of the most creative frocks ever to come down the runway. Chris was long a Bravo favorite, appearing on several of the network’s shows over the last decade.
There’s a lot of tension in the Below Deck Mediterranean galley ever since Ben Robinson returned. The audience was relieved to have Ben back on television, but First Stew Hannah Ferrier was not happy about his resurgence. At all.
Longtime Below Deck Med viewers might recall Season 1 of the show when Hannah had an interest in Ben. After a crew night out, she tried to make a move on him, but he rebuffed her advances. Instead, she saw firsthand when Ben had sex with Tiffany Copeland. Ouch. Talk about awkward. However, that was basically a whole lifetime ago, especially since this show changes up its cast so often. Could that encounter be why Hannah was mad about Ben’s return? Or was she just done with all of the chef drama from Season 4?
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
