Mail Bag: Is Tamra Fired?

This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra's face looks like.

This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra’s face looks like.

The emails are flooding in about a story just published on another website about Tamra getting fired. Everyone is asking me if it is true. So, I thought I would type my response here and just link everyone. Bravo sends out their pick up letters after the reunion episodes air. In these letters, the wives are either offered a contract for the upcoming season, or thanked for their services and given best wishes for future endeavors.  The reunion has not aired yet, ergo, pickup letters have not been sent. No one know yet who is coming back.  Bravos decisions have not been made. So my answer is, “I don’t know.”

HOWEVER, the fact that they include a scene of Tamra Judge screaming at everyone, including production about never seeing her again is tantamount to her quitting. While I am sure once she sobered up, she made up with production and worked out her contract, that would not sit well with Bravo. You sign up to be mocked and humiliated until the filming season closes. So strike one. Continue reading

Watch What Happens Live Guest List For The Rest of July

andy cohenBelow you will find the upcoming WWHL guest list for the remainder of July. Joan Rivers may end up eating Tara Reid a live on that show. So, that is must see TV! Kate Hudson is a nice get!  But I am most interested in why Vicki Gunvalson doesn’t have a seatmate yet? Are none of the Real Housewives of Orange County speaking now that the reunion has been filmed? Continue reading

Watch What Happens Live! With Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri

WWHL Kathy and Rosie

 

First of all, Andy tweeted tonight that we should be patient for Teresa’s WWHL appearance, so hopefully everyone has cooled down.  With Rosie on, there is always the possibility she will say something inappropriate!  As usual, I will ignore most everything the non-Bravolebrity has to say because no one cares.

First off, they discuss the ceramic shoe wine bottle holder gift that Nicole got for Christmas. No Bueno. OH, I just realized this person is not from Game of Thrones, but from that pageant show on Bravo, Game of Crowns that I have already forgotten about. Now I have my 9-10 time slot on Sunday to watch Unforgettable on CBS and Reckless right after at 10. Even though I DVR them to watch whenever I can after I recap Big Brother.  Anyway. I don’t care about her either.

Also, Andy has begun to implement the whole, “first timers to the show get the first chair” rule. I think this is utterly ridiculous and he just started it because we were all on to the original seating method of who is the biggest deal to Bravo, or whoever likes best. That will still be in effect on nights with no virgins. Continue reading

WWHL With….Nene Leakes? This Feels Like A Bad Omen

WWHL Andy and Jeff

Last night was one of those Big Brother challenges that do not have a winner when the episode ends. I think someone in the house referred to it as mental endurance. So I was engrossed in a wine fueled evening of  watching the live feeds with the TV on mute. Unfortunately my TV was showing WWHL and I glanced over and noticed, Nene. I am sick to my stomach at the thought of watching this, but I have to know WTF is going on.

Is Andy drinking rosé ?He’s already a pussy. He’s so damned happy! Ugh. Andy and Jeff play the crotch game and he mentions Scott Baio. That is interesting because Scott has become a Jesus Warrior or something and was very offended and pretty much refused to play. This has made Scott Baio Andy’s least favorite guest. Then he says that Nene has been on the show the most. Is that true? A Nene montage of noses follows.  Andy says that Nene has been on a grand total of 20 times and “he loves that lady so much.”  Oh god. He totally spazzes out like Elvis has arrived in the clubhouse to admit that he really isn’t dead. It’s unbearable. He professes his undying love. They double kiss. It’s over the top fangirl time for Andy. Continue reading

Tonight is WWHL Five Year Anniversary Show !

andy cohen

On tonight’s WWHL five-year anniversary show, Jeff Lewis will host and Andy has no idea what is going to happen. Because Jeff is all sorts of awesome, it should be a hilarious show. I expect Jeff to sort of roast Andy. :) I’ll be watching if I can stay awake. I did (mostly) fun things in THE WORLD for five hours today and I am exhausted!

Also, Teresa will be on WWHL Sunday night! #FelonsbyBravo That is another one you should put in your date book.

Click through for the rest of this week’s schedule. Continue reading

Bravo Announces Three New Shows And Greenlights Two More For Another Season

NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Upfront - 2014

Here is Bravo’s latest press release regarding their upcoming shows. Is it me are they really pumping out new programming like crazy these days?  It seems like I read somewhere they are now in the number three slot among cable stations with advertising.  That’s huge! It seems like they are throwing everything out there to see what sticks.  The good news is all the boys from Million Dollar Listing New York will be back for another season.  That’s not much of a surprise considering the episode with Fredrik’s wedding got an Emmy nomination recently.  The franchise will increase with the addition of Million Dollar Listing San Francisco.  I think San Fran is a great choice with some beautiful real estate for us to drool over.

A bit more surprising is the return of Southern Charm. I might even watch that series now that Thomas Ravenel is off the show. Ravenel is a former politician who already disgraced the fine state of South Carolina once when he was convicted of drug trafficking while holding a state office. Ravenel officially filed to run for U.S. Senate as an independent against two-term Republican incumbent Lindsay Graham. Good luck with that. #eyeroll

Once again the new shows look very promising. But we have learned not to get our hopes up. Game of Crowns anyone?  Click through for all the details. Continue reading

Watch What Happens Live with Tamra Judge

This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra's face looks like.

This picture does not give an accurate account of what Tamra’s face looks like.

Well, Tamra has some splainin’ to do after what we just saw on the Real Housewives of Orange County Tonight. Let’s she how she spins her awful behavior. Andy says in his opening that gossip is spreading through Orange County like chlamydia and a lot of people believe that Tamra is patient zero.  I could not have said it better myself.  Andy says Tamra is getting roasted on Twitter tonight. Also Tamra has done something to her face again and it looks really, really bad. She’s starting to look a lot like Adrienne Maloof.  Both guests are in hot pants. I have no idea who that other girl is in seat one. Tamra takes a jab at Andy during a game for putting her in the second seat.

Andy compliments Vicki for staying out of the fray and Heather scoffs and looks insulted. Next, Andy goes after the white eyeliner in the Talking Heads. Tamra says her regular make-up artist was unavailable that day. It was a two-hour interview and it is just being used a lot. Continue reading

Ladies of London Recap: I’ve Been to London To Visit the Queen

Ladies of london

Ladies of London ettiquetteBack across the pond, Annabelle is bed-ridden for the next four months. It takes her quite some time to moves from the bed to a chair two feet away. She can’t put any weight on her rear when sitting. Caroline gossips with Annabelle about Caprice asking Marissa and Noelle to host a baby shower. Annabelle tells Caroline to suck it up and go. There seems to be some question about whether or not is even a baby shower, of if it is a “leaving party.”  Annabelle’s body is so twisty and out of place it is hard to look at. Annabelle sense a power struggle between Caprice and Caroline.

Have we seen Caprice’s boyfriend before? I thought Caprice was married. Caprice and Ty’s surrogate is dilating. Ty doesn’t seem in any sort of rush to fly to the US yet. Caprice should probably be flying over herself right about now to have her baby there instead on mid flight over the Atlantic somewhere.

Caroline is having a dinner party with all the girls. It will be a catered event with waiters. Caroline is hiring an etiquette coach for Juliet, our National Treasure, in hopes that she might use proper decorum at the dinner table. Good luck with that. It’s a cheeky storyline. Caprice and Julie head off to visit with Annabelle. Caprice tells Annabelle that she is invited to Caroline’s dinner party and she does not want to go. Annabelle tells Caprice to go to dinner at Caroline’s and make up with her before the goes back to the states. Continue reading

Untying the Knot Double Feature

untying the knotWhile I have a few minutes, let’s check in on the last two episodes of Untying the Knot and see what sort of crap the latest divorcing couples are fighting over.

The Episode: A Date for Divorce

In this episode, we have a Mustang, “their dream house”, two dogs and a T-shirt collection. This should be interesting especially the dogs. Before we even start, I’d take the two chicks out to opposite sides of the yard blindfolded. I’d put the dogs one buy one in the middle and tell them to sit. I’d alert each chick as to which dog is out there and have them both call the dog at the same time. Wherever the dog went first, gets the dog. Lather, rinse, repeat. Damn, I’m just like King Solomon!  Let’s see what Vikki does.

Krissy and Tina seem perfect together. I’m less than a minute into them talking about each other and am already dumbstruck as to why they are getting a divorce. They are both grinning and talking very highly about the other.  Tina says that at first all she did was cater to Krissy and once she became her own person the marriage failed. Continue reading

Apollo Nida Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison!

RHOA Apollo Phaedra Reunion

UPDATE: Phaedra did not go to the sentencing.  Apollo’s mother and brother both made a plea to the court for leniency.  Apollo was described as “calm.”

Apollo’s lawyer did a great job of trying to plea down Apollo’s time. He spoke about Apollo’s upbringing, his lack of education (duh) and quoted statistics that 60% of African-American males who drop out of high school end up in prison.

Apollo’s mother was very emotional. She gave a statement saying that she was not a good mother, she was a cocaine addict who was in and out of prison. She had no husband. Apollo had no father.  Apollo was granted a voluntary surrender so that he can be out until he is assigned a prison. He was also given a drug and alcohol program. This is one of the only ways to get your federal time reduced. Apollo doesn’t have a drug or alcohol problem and this is simply good lawyering by his attorney. He attorney also got the promise of placement in a facility as near to Atlanta as possible so that his children can visit him.

This is beyond a light sentence. He gets a reduction for being stupid and black? He gets a reduction for a drug problem he doesn’t have? He gets voluntary surrender so that he can do some season 7 filming?  What is the deal with this judge? He sentenced him as a Category 5 and he gets 8 years? Continue reading

Watch What Happens Live with Heather Dubrow and Caroline Stanbury

WWHL heather and caroline

It’s interesting that Caroline gets first chair since she is a season one Bravolebrity. I did not notice Tamra’s bangs until Andy pointed them out but I like them. Caroline hates them. Heather said her daughter got bangs and she got hers cut to match and it was a sweet gestured. Caroline says, “It’s sweet if you’re 12.”  And we are off to the races already.

Andy promises that next week’s Real Housewives of Orange County episode will be epic beyond anything we have ever seen.

Caroline says she and Caprice are not really speaking. Continue reading
