In her Bravo blogLipsa Rinnaweighs in on the “Hunger Games” this week that was part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. She entered the reunion as a newbie, and with much trepidation. She hadn’t seen any of the ladies since filming for RHOBH had wrapped months before and says, “I could have gone another few months, or really, another few lifetimes without seeing them.” But see them, she did! And they lived up to her very low expectations about as well as she anticipated. “It seems some came in ready to toss out passive aggressive insults about how much better they were than the rest of us, and others came in with a more direct approach, shooting out insults the whole way through. Just as classy as I had anticipated it to be,” she quips.
Rinna first addresses the garbled, mumbly jab Kim Richards’attempted over Rinna doing a Depends commercial, which she claims earned her at least 7 figures. She says YES, not NO to 7 figure gigs! Meanwhile, Kim says YES to Diving with the Stars. And Drinking in Her Closet (allegedly). Apparently, as part of Rinna’s commercial contract, Kimberly Clark (Depends parent organization) donated a quarter of a million dollars to the charity Dress for Success: “a global not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Lisa adds, “The fact that I got paid handsomely and Dress For Success did as well is worth any teasing or taunting I may get. If ‘not taking pride’ in the jobs I choose means this worthy charity gets a hearty six figure check and some recognition, then so be it!”
Porsha Williams meant it when she said in therapy she wanted to move on from everyone’s issues. So when the Real Housewives Of Atlanta cast landed in Manila she was disappointed that Claudia Jordan tried to turn dinner into yet another therapy session – this one involving Phaedra Parks! Although she praises Claudia for the positive vacation, Porsha doesn’t believe Claudia should be meddling in whatever issues Phaedra has going on with Cynthia Bailey or Kenya Moore!
“I’m very excited about the upcoming season and personally, I was happy Bethenny was coming back,” declares LuAnn. “We’re friends, have history together – with both good and bad moments – and that adds some depth to the season. We reminisce a lot about the past, so true fans of the show will really enjoy that, I think.”
Kristen explains that for the most part everyone got along this season, but she certainly has some friction with Bethenny and hints we should “#staytuned LOL.” Kristen explains Bethenny brings “a whole new dynamic” which is an interesting contrast.
Compared to last season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills it has been diamonds and rosé for Lisa Vanderpump. The one thorn in the rose being Brandi Glanville! After attempting to move on with Brandi this season, Lisa was unfortunately, quite literally, slapped in the face, and has decided enough is enough. Reflecting on the vitriolic reunion, Lisa explains she doesn’t feel bad about cutting Brandi out of her life like a dead flower on the vine because Brandi’s version of reality is seriously and disturbingly skewed!
“This year I felt drastically different than last. I wasn’t of the mind to digest any of the nonsense that potentially would be spewed by some,” Lisa reasons. “I felt almost a certain vindication as I knew there were some whom had done an excellent job of exposing themselves.”
“In regard to BG, I am not apologizing for my feelings of being utterly incredulous at almost everything she says, as she has, over a rather long period of time, created an idiotic perception of what she believes to be reality. She doesn’t see things clearly,” Lisa articulates. Brandi is perhaps living in some very skewed and twisted version of Alice in Wonderland… Boozdi In Blunderland?!
E! has added three new reality series, one featuring Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim Kardashian‘s DASH boutiques, to its lineup and announced the return of three existing shows.

Yesterday the news broke that Mob Wives star Big Angwas undergoing tests for a lemon-sized tumor that was found in her throat and now the reality star is confirming the news. Angela Raoila posted a note to her fans yesterday afternoon, thanking them and sharing what’s up with her health.
Ang writes, apologizing for not sharing her health issue before it hit the media, “Hi my babies! I am finally able to take a moment to speak to you all. First off, my apologies that you had to find out about my condition from every other outlet but me. This was never my intent, but unfortunately it got out there.”
