When Andy Cohen welcomed his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, on February 4, 2019, he knew that his life was going to be forever changed. But, unfortunately, this major life change also had an unintended effect on Andy’s beloved rescue dog, Wacha.
Andy and Wacha were besties for about seven years. There is even a stuffed animal Wacha on the Watch What Happens Live set.
Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County has introduced us to newbie Elizabeth Lyn Vargas. No—not the Elizabeth Vargas who is a reporter and documentary host.
This Elizabeth is the Founder/CEO of digital music label and streaming service Edge Music. Elizabeth is also in the process of divorcing her husband, Bernt Bodal. She is friends with RHOC co-star Kelly Dodd. Viewers will have to wait and see if that is still the case after this season.
Pretty much all I remember about America’s Next Top Model is that Shandi Sullivan had sex with someone who wasn’t her boyfriend in a hot tub night one. I can’t seem to remember important dates or facts but this is somehow burned in my memory bank. The real point, however, is that I didn’t watch ANTM. That reason was Tyra Banks.
In the early years of ANTM she also had a talk show, Tyra. It was focused on “women’s issues” and often featured women from ANTM. That way, Tyra could make Tyra all about herself. Now, for whatever reason, she’s hosting Dancing With the Stars and banning any and all Housewives.
Vanderpump Rules was once the best show on Bravo. Of course, THAT’S MY OPINION!!! (Trademark Tamra Judge). But seriously, it was! Who would have thought following hot Survers around a sexy unique restaurant would have been a good idea? Lisa Vanderpump – that’s who. The woman is some sort of Bobby Fischer genius reality TV Svengali.
LVP didn’t write the whole story, but she knew Scheana Marie’s affair with Brandi Glanville’s D-List ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, would be the crossover of crossovers. Season after season the Pump Rules cast never stopped surprising us with their awful misdeeds and sometimes instant confessions. The content was wild and entertaining. But under the surface were some harsh truths and finally, this year, there was a reckoning. Day one stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist actions. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for using racial slurs. Now that the “reality” of these personas has been exposed, where does it go from here?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has gone through quite some changes in their cast as of late. After Lisa Vanderpump exited the show, they have a had a hard time finding their footing. Sure, Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke were great additions, but were they enough?
Especially since we saw fan fav Denise Richards get chased off by her castmates. And with Teddi Mellencamp unceremoniously canned, that leaves some shoes to fill. There have been talks about Kris Jenner or Kathy Hilton joining the fray. But nothing has been confirmed and we are left waiting and wondering what direction the franchise will go in. But as it turns out, they weren’t the only names that are being thrown around.
The pandemic has not been friendly to the restaurant business, and especially not to Lisa Vanderpump’s West Hollywood empire. Unfortunately for the Vanderpump Rules star, she had to permanently shut down her restaurant Villa Blanca. Lisa’s other establishments, SUR, Pump, and TomTom had closed their doors, while many others in Los Angeles remained open for take out. Lisa also had troubles when a former employee sued her for allegedly not paying SUR employees.
As time passed, things began to turn around for LVP. She started a new podcast, and booked a new show for her rescue, Vanderpump Dogs. Who wouldn’t want to watch cute dogs for an hour? However, I’m sure most people will fast forward through the staged scenes of Lala Kent pretending to stock dog food and clean up poo. There is more good news for Lisa; one of her restaurants has finally reopened! And some of the Pump Rules gang are back as well.
Nowadays, Gigi Hadid is known as one of the highest paid supermodels in the world, but the longtime Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers remember meeting her as Yolanda Foster’s daughter. Who could ever forget Yolanda advising Gigi to eat one almond when she was hungry and only letting her eat one piece of her own cake at her graduation part?
Well, Yolanda dropped the “Foster” and returned to Yolanda Hadid right around the time she exited Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, instead spending her time on a Pennsylvania farm and cheering on her supermodel children on Instagram a la momager Kris Jenner. She also was the first one to confirm that Gigi was expecting a baby with Zayn Malik in April (hopefully, she got permission to spill the tea on that one) during an interview with a Dutch radio station. Now, she’s a grandma.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans rejoiced this week when Teddi Mellencamp admitted to being fired. Finally! Some good news in 2020. Teddi never really found her footing on the show. Sure, she’s John Mellencamp’s shadow daughter and she took on Lisa Vanderpump in her second season. But everything else was zzzzzzzzzz. Who even wants to talk about it anymore?
Aside from Kyle Richards, Teddi was not close with any of the women on the show. Let’s be honest, Dorit Kemsley didn’t care if she left her waiting and Erika Jayne has probably never forgotten her “pretend amnesia” comments. So she’s not getting much of a send-off from anyone other than her one advocate.
