The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans have become accustomed to Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump taking jabs at each other. At times it seems like they really can’t stand each other. On other occasions, it feels like playful banter. And here and there it’s just difficult to know where they actually stand. Are they enemies, frienemies, or friends?
Yesterday had to be such an awkward day for Melissa Gorga to do press. Of course, promoting a show about arguing with family and friends has to be uncomfortable in general. Not only that, but those photos of Teresa Giudice holding hands with a 26-year-old random just hit the internet.
I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jerseyreunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa GorgaOlympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.
Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.
However, Melissa had to be jealous at least a little surprised that Margaret got the seat next to Andy Cohen. Then again, Melissa doesn’t have as many battles to fight this season. Margaret had it out with Jennifer, Teresa, and Danielle Staub, who will not appear on Part 1. Meanwhile, Melissa promoted her own store and took a genetic test to match with a “sister” that does not actually exist may or may not exist.
Jennifer requested that the ladies wear red, and when Marty insulted Margaret’s appearance, Joe B. sure was seeing red. It wasn’t the first time that Marty slammed Margaret’s looks. At Milania Giudice’s listening party, Marty said that Margaret wouldn’t want to be in a room with Danielle because no one would be able to take their eyes off Danielle.
While it would be cool to see someone with genuine tiger’s blood on the show, it’s not looking likely. There was no indication of the former Two and a Half Men star in the Season 9 trailer. Trailers don’t show everything so anything is possible! Right? After all, the mother of his children is a focal point of the new season. Plus, Charlie isn’t typically someone to shy away from the limelight. All of his over the top antics would fit in perfectly in the 90210. Luckily for fans, Charlie is setting the record straight on if he’ll make a cameo this season, other than his appearance via speakerphone during the last episode.
Last night, Vanderpump Rules viewers saw the return of Crazy Kristen. Kristen Doute even drunkenly fell onto a table after receiving a text about guys night from her man Brian Carter. Through the unintelligible slurring It was not clear what Carter actually texted her, but does it even matter?
Not only that, but Kristen also had some misplaced anger over James Kennedy returning to DJ at Pump. Of course, none of these are actually related, but it all comes back to projection. Right? That’s especially true on reality TV. Last night was the first time Carter has appeared on an episode in forever and it wasn’t even with his own girlfriend. He was at guys night with the rest of the men in the cast. Meanwhile, the female cast members exposed their relationship issues. Stassi Schroeder even called Carter out for not paying any bills. James Kenndy 2.0, much? Why is Kristen always in a sugar mama situation?
It feels like the saga between Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes will never end. During Season 1 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, these two were best friends. For a couple episodes anyway. Then, they had an on-again-off-again relationship that spawned some infamous insults.
NeNe told Kim “close your legs to married men.” She called her a “trash box.” NeNe even referred to Kim as “Wig” instead of her actual name. Many times over. And who can forget their confrontation during the Season 10 reunion? There’s no coming back from that kind of animosity. Right? Well, you never know what to expect from these two. The door is actually not closed.
