As much as I like these ridiculous Bravo shows, they always seem to just drag on forever. For the first time in the history of Bravo, the Shahs finale seemed like a nice happy ending. All of the storylines were wrapped up. Everyone pretended to kiss and make up. That should have been the end.
But, no. We are still driving the hilariously stupid gold them into the ground with a reunion at a dinner table. Let’s see if some dumps a plate of tahdig on anyone in this episode.
Andy asks Reza what the hell he was thinking screaming the word faggot at people in a gay club. He says that the guy was talking about Iran like it was Club Med. Um, flashback to 80′s resorts with rampant STDs. Plus the guy was not doing that at all. He talked about missing his family and not being able to see them. Now MJ is joining in to defend Reza and both are saying that FOB is perfectly fine. As far as I am concerned it is perfectly fine if your intent is to insult someone, it’s as good an insult as any. What is not perfectly fine is the two of them acting as if it is a term of endearment. They are both delusional. Just say, “I didn’t like the guy, I called him an FOB, and it’s really not that big of a deal!” But no. That can never happen. Reza and MJ both just seem to try to look like assholes. Reza seems to get it after the tenth question that he needs to apologize and shut up. Continue reading
Dear God in heaven the show is almost over and I am just beginning. I am just going to have to set my alarm for tomorrow because it is going to be such a busy day. I am going to make this short and sweet.
Newsflash: I ADORE Demetria. I love how she has a blog full of smart, educated like-minded women. If you guys are going to be on the Mica train then this is not the blog for you. I am team Demetria and Geneva all day long. Deal with it.
Demetria smartly is not inviting Mica to her blog anniversary party. Because, NOE. Did I miss who this little short-haired girl is? I have no idea who she is. Enlighten me.
Frankly, I don’t even want to blog the Mica scenes. Is there nothing these people won’t discuss on camera? Now her mama wants to come on and talk shit about her dead daddy? Um noe. Fast forwarding. Continue reading
I really don’t want to make this post. But I will because people who try to seek “fame” in general make me wonder if their mama didn’t hug them enough. The older I get, the more I take a self inventory. The past few days have in fact wiped me out as I did that. I won’t over share for once, other than to say, I have been in some negotiations for my services lately and I acted like a total jackass during those negotiations. As a result, I was forced to take inventory of myself and why I react the way I do in certain situations. I’ve had a painful few days where I acted like an asshat in my professional arena, and have tried to grow as a person with the help of some much needed therapeutic assistance. My therapist’s advice was essentially to learn from your mistakes and try not to make them in the future. Please deposit $180 in my tip jar for that So advice. Fine. I paraphrase. $18 will do. lol. These are the jokes people. Sort of. But I share that because I think it relates to this story.
I am growing tired of people posting in the OTHER Saving Our Daughters post comments “Didja hear they are not a real charity?” Yes. Yes. I did both in comments HERE and HERE! So I am updating y’all on what we know. I am changing to purple font at this point.
Despite the HUGE spotlight placed on Curtis Benjamin and his “charity” the site continues to portray themselves as :
Our Vision / Approach: Saving Our Daughters is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose philosophy is to build a movement that begins with experiential literacy and effortlessly flows into recurring civil actions (words and actions). Continue reading
Kenya has a whole lot to say on her Bravo blog this week! Let’s look at a few excerpts and dissect them shall we? As usual, my comments will be in purple text.
“NeNe and I are both survivors of domestic violence. I, particularly, have a penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls thrive. Saving Our Daughters (SOD) is one I too firmly believe in and thought would help a lot of girls in need with their struggles in life. Previously, I promised NeNe that I would throw an event to benefit her favorite charity. That I did with no ulterior motive.”
Even though I have taken a seat on the Kenya Love Bus of 2014, I do not believe for a minute that Kenya did the charity event strictly out of the goodness of her heart. Nor do I believe that she was trying to get in Nene’s good graces. I believe that Kenya knows Nene well enough to know how to get her goat. And she not only succeeded at that the got her whole farm. And frankly? I think it is about time Nene got a taste of her own medicine. She needed to be brought down a few pegs. Kenya managed to do this while coming out smelling like a rose. For that, I have to give the girl props. Continue reading

I remember last season, or maybe it was the season before thinking that Nene Leakes had a great public relations team. She was getting lots of interview opportunities and was handling them well. Her team had gone to great lengths to coach her on what to say, and what not to say. She was dressing better. Her ego seemed to be in check. I was impressed.
All that seemed to change when her brief Hollywood stint came to a close. Did Ryan Murphy hire all of those people to keep her in line? Because lately she seems to be in total meltdown mode. She is on such a self-destructive rampage lately, I am not sure she can come back from this one. Sure, every year as contract time with Bravo approaches she starts screaming about there not being a show without her. But this year, it’s liable to be the death of her reality career. And there doesn’t seem to be a PR team in sight to get her in line. We all know Gregg is afraid to open his mouth.
Nene has posted her blog about this episode on her personal blog as well as on the Bravo site. Let’s take a gander at it. Continue reading
Cynthia Bailey spoke with Jet Magazine recently and shared her thoughts on Pajama Brawl and also answered questions about rumors of Peter’s involvement with Apollo Nida’s illegal activities. What do you think about her responses?
JET: Who do you blame for the fight (between Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, and Kenya Moore’s assistant Brandon DeShazer)?
CB: I say when Kenya actually got up. I don’t want to put the blame on her, but her emotion just caused a domino effect. You know we are all grown and personally, I always try to be rational and conduct myself with class, but sometimes my crew is a little messy sometimes — and I can’t not throw a rock in there sometimes. Continue reading
Demetria is sitting first chair. That is what I wanted to see. I am glad Andrew, RECOGNIZED, because as some little twat just posted I am biased as hell to Demetria (and Geneva!). For anyone else who is unclear about how a blog works, I give my opinions here. And my opinion is that Demetria and Geneva rock. Don’t agree? You can give your lame reasons for liking the loud obnoxious drunk chicks in comments. Unless you are banned from commenting, in which case you can suck it! And for those of you who prefer the Louds, things always go to hell in season two and my favorites never fail to disappoint, so if you can hang on til then, I may change my mind.
Moving on… Andy begins by throwing shade at Mica. Her “equine mating call” which I ever so delicately declined to mock on my recap tonight is the drinking “word.” Melyssa is new. As in brand new, if you know what I mean, and she doesn’t realize shade is even being thrown because that is how Andy roles. He really should NOT have put her in the middle of the Prouds. Then Andy takes the shade farther so the clueless Loud gets it. He suggests that when we hear the equine mating call, that we drink until we flash our lady bits at an Uptown Magazine party. #ShadyBoots
Next on Andrew’s list is the video vixen herself, Melysssa. Andy clearly wants to sit next to me in the Team Proud bleachers. Andy plays a clip of Sisqó’s Thong Song Video despite his indications that Melyssa did not want him to do so. #PalmTreeOShade . Melyssa pretends to be embarrassed rather than, you know actually being embarrassed. Continue reading
The gals from Blood Sweat & Tears are back in the city and hopefully ready for something a little more upbeat than the dying daddy storyline. Everyone is getting ready to go to the Polo Classic and shopping for hats. The girls are divided into two groups. Demetria, Geneva and Brie, and the lesser idiots. Clearly, DGB do not want to mingle with MMD. Mica is talking about how she is super woman in her talking heads and talking about cremating her father in the hat shop. Okay, you know what? I don’t care if I am an hour behind on my recapping. I am going to need a glass of wine for this. Please standby. I need to search for a corkscrew. I’m back. Thanks for your patience. I now have wine and candlelight (not from an abundance candle, sadly) and am ready to forge ahead.
Daisy and Maisy, I mean Melyssa, tattle to Mica that Brie had lunch with them to discuss Mica’s alcoholism. Daisy and Melyssa name their click the Louds and the sane girls the Prouds. Works for me. The Louds sure don’t have anything to be Proud of.
Demetria meets with Harriette, her mentor who calms her down a bit because her cup runneth over. They talk about how Demetria and Greg want different things when it comes to getting married. Demetria realizes that Greg needs to be high on her list even though she has so many projects going on. Demetria wants to go to the Justice of the Peace and Greg wants a big traditional wedding. Harriette advised Demetria to make time for Greg everyday. Gurl, if you don’t someone else will! He’s a good catch! And now that you are flashing his fine ass all over the TeeVee? You better keep him happy at home, that’s all I’m saying.
The Prouds are not planning to be anywhere near the Louds at this ever so civilized function. They will not be embarrassed! Did Geneva just say “Twirl on that?” I love it! Continue reading
We begin tonight’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta at the J Spot! Girl, Miss Lawrence sure did get lucky with Bravo. He has been promoting his salon and hair services for many seasons and they frequently film at his store. Then he lands Fashion Queens?! He’s probably making more coin than some of the actual housewives! Tonight Marlo is in the salon getting her weave ironed. I cannot believe Bravo let our favorite felon back on the show. But lately, there are almost more people with federal charges pending than housewives with a clear record! I wonder if this is before or after the event where Nene tried to get Marlo arrested for assault? I sure hope they air that scene before the season ends! Nene was throwing a flinger!
Anyway, tonight Kenya is hosting a charity ball and Marlo is invited. The two ladies meet up at the J-Spot to have some girl talk. Kenya tells Miss Lawrence and Marlo the scoop on pajama brawl. They discuss their previous battles with Nene, and Kenya explains she is going to hold a fancy charity ball to raise money for Nene’s Favorite charity in order to get back in her good graces. Does Kenya not know that Nene’s favorite charity is Nene’s Louboutin Fund? I think she overestimates Nene’s ability to be charitable. I’m just saying.
Kandi is holding auditions for her play which by all accounts did very well on it’s Atlanta run despite the hilarious things we have seen in the casting call scenes. I assure you, most of those people do not represent the talent that Atlanta has to offer. It’s time for Porsha’s audition for the role of Kandi’s character’s younger sister, Jada. Porsha could not be bothered to memorize her lines, nor could she be arsed to cold read them as written. Her voice was up about three octaves and she spoke in a valley girl voice. She sang “His Eye is On the Sparrow” in a way over the top way. However, I think with a little coaching from Kandi, she would be alright in this small role. Continue reading

You know who else likes books? Hitler! Um, I mean Andy Cohen.
You know what OK Magazine thought would be a fun idea? Getting someone who has not read a book since middle school and even then only read the Cliff’s Notes to do some book reviews! Well, it kind of make sense when the books are “written” by Bravolebrities who have never read a book either (let alone actually written the ones he is discussing.) So just for shits and giggles, let’s see what Reza has to say about three books he has never read by people who didn’t actually write them.
Reza likes the cover of Phaedra’s book. He loves things that are red and pink because he is gay. (His words not mine.) And he thinks the full page photo of Phaedra on the back is cute and he wants to give her a hug. But when you open the book. Wait? He opens a book? Are we witnessing a first here on OK Magazine Video? Rene says $23 is rather steep for a book. And it is for this book. However, it does make it clear that Reza has never purchased a book in his life. Continue reading

Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams in Happier Times.
I’ve been so (good!) busy lately that I have not really told you guys everything there is to tell about a huge drama that has been going on in the Big Apple between Wendy Williams, Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen. Well today, the battle has been won by Wendy Williams and I am ready to spill all the tea as Bethenny Frankel’s talk show has been cancelled after just one (kinda lousy) season.
Let’s start with Wendy Williams point of view. I’ve been harsh at times with Wendy (even though she has mentioned tamaratattles.com on her show before #ChateauSheree) because for a while there she was reporting gossip from a site that shall not be named frequently that has a history of making up outrageous stories for drama/page views. But lately, I have found her show to be a really fun watch. Wendy is established in the NYC daytime talk circuit and pulls commendable ratings. She is humble, relates well to her audience and is extremely good at giving advice on the fly during her ask Wendy segments. She also had a great relationship with Andy Cohen and frequently booked his WWHL guests when they were in town. Continue reading
