Lisa Rinna was trying on dresses this week. It’s about time for filming the opening of RHOBH so many are guessing this is what she is wearing. This gold number was custom-made for her by Sergio Hudson. I kind of love it so I wanted to share it with you and get your thoughts.
Also, I know you guys keep telling me differently, but I have seen no signs that Eileen is filming with RHOBH. I have seen Rinna and Eileen on a hike recently that might have been filmed but I have not seen Eileen with any of the housewives other than Rinna which makes me think she is probably an FOH this season. Also, it’s almost time to select the season seven taglines. I was hoping you guys could offer some suggestions for the RHOBH!
When it comes to RHOA, Ex-housewife, Nene has been insanely busy. She has only been in Atlanta briefly where she was advising someone on a multilevel marketing scheme. They were trying to pull her into that. That is the last refuge of the broke. For her sake, she needs to walk away from that faster than a senior citizen at a time share presentation circa 1984. She has been spending a LOT of time in Miami. Enough to make me have wishful thoughts that they will resurrect RHOM with Nene on it. That is just my wishful thinking though, I loved that franchise. She recently hosted a party in LA for the owner of the Abbey. She has stand up gigs in NYC and Chicago this month. That’s a huge step after starting out in Charlotte, North Carolina. The woman is still hustling. Also, To Tell The Truth was picked up for another run to be aired next summer. No word if she has been asked to return, but I expect she will be. She had good chemistry with the other regulars from what I observed. Continue reading

I swear, all I hear about Kenya Moore filming RHOA lately is drama. It seems like most, but not all. of it has to do with Matt. I am over Matt. I’ve heard of at least three incidents where there has been an on camera argument between Matt and Kenya. Kenya has been filming with her father a lot lately. It’s unclear whether he is down for an extended visit or if he has decided to relocate. Around the same time she bought her house, she bought another modest home in the suburbs. Perhaps that was for her father? At the time I thought it might have been for Aunt Lori. I’m not sure. Anyway he is here. And he is filming with her. The photo above was sent to me about two weeks ago. That is supposed to be her father with his back to us in a white shirt. I can’t confirm that, in more recent photos his head was not clean-shaven. Maybe she gets her fast hair growth from her Daddy.
The photo above was filmed outside a restaurant in Atlanta where Matt was having one of his tantrums, arms folded like a toddler. I liked Matt with Kenya at first, but he is just too young for him. She needs a man, not a boy who takes all of their arguments to social media looking to rally people to his side for sympathy. I can also tell you the past dramatics by Matt where he claimed he was showing up at Kenya’s for a reconciliation (weeks ago) and was ambushed by the TV cameras was completely false. He had been staying at Moore Manor for the better part of a month when he went on that tirade. He likes to act like he move to L.A. but no. He traveled with her to L.A. and they have been very on again off again since the Mexico trip from hell.

My friend, Jacques recapped a recent Andy’s Girls Podcast interview of Brandi Glanville. She has some interesting things to say about Lisa Vanderpump. Jacques is in my collections of gays AND my collection of Aussies. Read his thoughts below and click the link to follow him on Twitter!
On LVP being manipulative: “Our friendship quickly turned into constant strategizing.”
“Kyle had been saying it for years but no one wanted to believe her, she was calling her Bobby Fisher. Then Lisa and I became friends, and that friendship quickly turned into contstant strategizing. It was exhausting to be honest. We couldn’t just go to dinner. It was dinner and “Let’s talk about the show.” “Let’s talk about what’s going to happen next.” Almost planning everything, and I was like “Oh my god, this is not how I roll.” Because I can’t plan what comes out of my mouth, and that’s the truth. I wish I could because I would not be in the lawsuits that I’m in!”
On LVP always bouncing back: “She can get away with murder.”
“I was kind of relieved to see that the other women saw what I saw [last season], but at the same time, Lisa’s like a cat — she will always land on her feet. She’s not gonna go down. For some reason, the audience just loves her so much. I always say that she could BBQ a baby, and people would say “Oh, but she loves dogs!” She can get away with murder and do it with an accent and a smile. But I’m telling you, the girls that crossed her, she will come for them next season. And not just on the show; she will try to ruin their entire lives.”
It’s been over a year since Nene Leakes bought her new house in Atlanta. There has been a lot of discussion since the move about her lack of furniture. She even got really pissed off while on The View when someone asked where her furniture was during her appearance. Nene was claiming for a while that she was going to be a furniture designer and sell her own line of furniture. You really should click on that link, it’s a great post if I do say so myself. And as usual I was right, there is and never was a furniture line.
Someone has been sending me lots of Nene related interviews lately. It seems as though Larry King has taken his cancelled TV show to the Internet and one of the people he has interviewed was Nene. When she was asked what she liked best about being famous, she said, “The perks.” Even though she is still striving to receive some perks.
Leave it to Nene to find a way to get free furniture, at least for one room.
Happy first day of filming RHOA Season 9 y’all! In the days before filming starts I get all sorts of odd “sources” saying all sorts of things. It’s usually things we WISH were true but are not. This year there have been lots of rumblings about Phaedra that I really wanted to believe. But alas, the filming trucks started rumbling through her neighborhood at the butt crack of dawn this morning. I’ve also heard unconfirmed speculation that Phaedra’s mother has either been ill or had some sort of surgery and that this might play into her Phaedra’s storyline this season. As we know Phaedra and Porsha are on the outside of the group this season and her Phaedra’s mother often gives her someone to film with. Let’s hope Pastor Bell is doing well and this speculation is unfounded. I’d much rather see Phaedra and her mother, that Phaedra and Porsha.
Meanwhile, production is all in a dither because they have tried to plot out the storylines for this “reality” show and reality keeps on getting in the way of their scripts. Nene supposedly has some last minute thing happening in Vegas.. I am not sure if she is even on the way back the ATL yet or if they have worked out her schedule and contract requirements. Cynthia was in Negril as of yesterday enjoying her “almost single” life and possibly getting her groove back. Kenya has apparently been living on a plane for the last week or so between Mexico, Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles. If RHOOC is any example of the new overused storylines being passed around between franchises she needs to get home so we can see her giving herself IVF shots a la Meghan Edmonds. UGH. Porsha has been out buying new THOTwear for the season. Once again the show is out of the gate with a highly unsettled filming schedule.
I really hate this time of year because everyone keeps asking me about RHOA. I have a good bit of information about WHERE THINGS STAND NOW. However, as I have learned over the season, things change as filming begins. This is a time where there is a lot of turmoil. You really never know what is going to happen.
So here is what I know so far. First, I want to dispel a rumor. I got the majority of my information last Friday. I decided to hold on to it because I had some followup questions and it was the long weekend and it wasn’t possible to reach the best sources because people were out having their last hurrah. Sometime later that Friday, someone somewhere apparently started a rumor that someone was fired. That is not true. No one was fired last Friday. In fact, I just got a hold of my original contact who basically said, ” Look, I told you what is happening. No one was fired.”
So that means I can go ahead with the information I already had. The short version of that is “Everyone is asked back except Kim who quit. “ Except it’s never that simple. What I was told last week was that everyone was asked back but Phaedra and Porsha have “limited contracts.” This is a term that was used before. In last year’s clusterfuck with things not working out with Nene, Phaedra and Porsha were also not guaranteed full time status last season. There was even a moment where KENYA didn’t seem to be on solid ground. So here we go again. Continue reading
