Celebrity Big Brother Finale Recap: And The Winner Is…

It’s been a tumultuous month in the Big Brother house. On Wednesday night it all came to an end. The winner of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 was crowned, following the final two HOH competitions of the season. The finale felt tight, compact, and a bit rushed. Just like the season as a whole. Still, it wasn’t without drama and a few final twists. So which celebrity took home the $250,000 grand prize, and who was sent home bitter?

As I always state up-front – and much like my Survivor column for this very same outlet – what I plan to bring you this season isn’t exactly a blow-by-blow “recap” of the show.  Instead, this includes my thoughts, analysis, and reaction to the episode (or episodes) that we just witnessed. In other words, I’ll assume that you’ve seen the episode(s) each time. So please, please, PLEASE, if you do not want to have the show spoiled, don’t read any further until you’ve seen the episode(s)!

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Seeing Red

I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems like it has gone by so quickly, but in some ways, it’s been quite a long, drama-fueled road that culminated in the ladies seeing red at Jennifer Aydin’s anniversary party celebrating sixteen years with Dr. Poolhouse. Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub are perusing scarlet ball gowns while discussing Margaret Joseph’s gala. Danielle gets in a requisite amount of digs while questioning whether she’ll be well received at the party. Teresa reveals that she doesn’t have an issue with Margaret and sees no reason not to be her friend. Danielle bristles, questioning whether Teresa will have her back if someone comes for her at the event. Of course, Tre is nothing if not loyal. It was hard to even type that with a straight face!

Jackie Goldschneider takes her mother for a makeover, but her mom explains that her physical appearance has never had an impact on her self-esteem. Jackie believes her mother has felt she had to be frumpy to be taken seriously as a business woman. She compares that fear of finding beauty with her reconciliation with her sister after a fifteen year estrangement. I’m not sure what one has to do with the other, but her mother’s hair and make-up looks nice.

Brianna-camps-with-new-man

During last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Briana DeJesus invited her next baby daddy boy toy, John to go camping. Briana’s mom hears about the trip and she hopes she is going to pace herself. I think we all hope that! She falls in love just as quickly as the relationships fall apart. SMH. If she put as much effort into her kids as she did with these men, then she would be super mom.

It is very odd to me that there are only three people going on this trip. Briana only invites her best friend and her new boo. Seems like this was supposed to be a girls trip and the plans changed at the last minute. Who would want to be the third wheel on a trip???? What is sad is that I am not surprised. She just seems like the type of friend who would ditch you at the club the moment a guy smiled at her.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta - Eva's Bachelorette Party

Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta ended their trip to Tokyo with some tears, but plenty of laughs. I never thought we’d see a Real Housewives trip end without a major blowout fight. However, it turns out pickles make people laugh, they make people love, and they make people forget all their rude thoughts! More pickles for the reunion, Andy Cohen!

Over in Japan Dennis McKinley is missing Porsha Williams so much he sends her a bouquet of flowers that looks like the vegetation in a Super Mario Brothers game from the 90’s.

This so-called arrangement was a hot mess that was bursting out of its box – just like Porsha’s boobs were bursting out of her top. Some mad science definitely was being used to keep those things taped. She was one sneeze away from an explosion. NASA has better things to do, y’all! 

Real Housewives Of Atlanta - Porsha Williams Pickles

On tonight’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, the women are still in Tokyo but they are finally coming together to throw Eva Marcille the type of raunchy bachelorette party every real Housewife deserves – complete with inappropriate use of pickles, samurai strippers, and plenty of unwanted advice!

First the ladies take a samurai lesson which has them using head-to-head combat (and wooden swords) instead of words to over differences of opinions, but the exercise proves to soften a long-standing rivalry. Bravo isn’t sharing who’s who, but I’m guessing that Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss finally stop hating each other.

Celebrity Big Brother Recap Episodes 10 & 11: Chaos Reigns

If you are a fan of Tom Green, then you most likely were thoroughly entertained by Celebrity Big Brother these past few days! When we last left off, Tom Green was just left shell-shocked after the surprise eviction of his best pal, Kato Kaelin. Tom was convinced that it was he who would be sent packing. The next few days that followed would put Tom on a whirlwind tour of Celebrity Big Brother, from bottom to top and back around again…ending in a live double-eviction episode this past Friday that sets the stage for the Celebrity Big Brother Finale that’s coming Wednesday, Feb 13th.

lil-fizz

Last night on Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, Tiffany Campbell confronted Lil Fizz about his relationship with Nia Riley. She is very unhappy with how cozy the picture of him and Nia appears. Lil Fizz claims they are just friends, but is also extremely defensive when questioned. At this point, I don’t even know why it matters. This has man has done everything, besides putting it on a billboard, to show Tiffany he has no real interest in her. Her questions would be valid if they were in a relationship, but given their circumstances, it should just be another reason to move on. Is Nia interested in Fizz as more than a friend?

Tiffany continues to grill him on Nia. She wants to know how many times have they hung out. Lil Fizz tells her people have always been there when they have seen each other. She is upset that Nia has been around his son and she hasn’t. Fizz tells her to get over it and find someone who isn’t a public figure. He is tired of people asking him about Nia when she is in a relationship. She asks Nia directly and her story is different. At this point, who cares? They are not in a relationship and he doesn’t seem to ever want to be in one. His contempt for her practically leaps off the screen.

season-finale

Last night on Floribama Shore was the group’s last week in the shore house. It’s finally time for them all to say goodbye. This season we have seen a lot of drunken nights, hookups, stalking, and fights. With Jeremiah Buoni’s brother in town, I wonder if Nilsa Prowant will fall for him again. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen since he completely played her last summer.

Jeremiah’s brother, Josh, finally arrives at the house. The douche bag level goes up to a thousand with his arrival. Josh tells the crew that he is getting laid tonight. Josh clearly knows attention is Nilsa’s kryptonite because begins complimenting her. Little does she know what he was just saying about her outside.
