So every presidential election for the last decade or so, Donald Trump pretends like he is considering running for the presidency. I never really believe he is serious, because, he’s kind of busy running eleventy billion businesses and hosting Celebrity Apprentice. One of his other entertainment enterprises is the Miss USA and Miss Universe Franchise. Some reports indicate that this enterprise is jointly owned by Trump and NBC. I don’t think that exactly accurate. I believe Trump owns Miss Universe and partnered with NBC for the TV shows.
Which brings us to this year when Trump is actually honest to God running for president. This meant that Celebrity Apprentice would be on hold until he dropped out. I can live with that. But then, Trump said about illegal immigrants ” they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” Well, this caused the Hispanic population’s head to explode. God forbid we mention that the illegal immigrants are committing crimes simply by entering the country illegally, draining our public school systems, burdening our jails, and committing violent crimes. If you live in the south, anywhere, this is no secret. Apparently, it is not nice to mention that criminals commit crimes. Sure Trump’s delivery sucks, but nothing will win the votes of Texans and Arizona voters like promising to seal the southern border with a big ole wall.
So then Univison who airs the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant in Spanish says they are not going to air it anymore because Trump is a big ole windbag who hates Mexicans. So now all the people who work on the Spanish version of the show are out of a job, and all the countries with Spanish-speaking representatives in the pageant can’t watch and Univision (and Trump) lose money. Who cares the least about this? Trump. Continue reading
Carlos King, another “friend” of Nene’s that is no longer.
I have some curious news, that I have not been sharing about RHOA. My sources are saying that the reason pickup letters have not gone out yet is because the show has not yet been picked up for another season. This is not normal. I do not think it means that we have seen the last of RHOA, despite the lower ratings this season, the viewership is high enough to pick up another season. I mean Vanderpump Rules has been picked up and their ratings were not close to RHOA’s ratings even at RHOA’s lowest point. I believe the hold up is related to production. With Carlos King leaving, whatever the real circumstances are, there are going to be a lot of changes to production. They may even be considering another production company all together. There were a lot of audio problems with the reunion, Bravo may decide to make a fresh start.
So, they can’t send out the pickup letters until all of that is resolved. However, NBCu Cable Upfronts are this week. The parties start tonight and the days are jam packed until Thursday. Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. is when the NBCu Cable Upfronts will happen. I assume they will announce the RHOA being picked up then. Three RHOA will be in attendance, Kenya, Kandi, and Nene. It seems those are the only three invited to upfronts. This means Phaedra, Claudia, and Cynthia are… not secure in their spots. It’s clear Bravo wants to shake the show up much like they did RHONY a few seasons ago (and we all saw how well that turned out.) Continue reading

Just finished this week’s episode. Was that the season finale? Is someone coming to take the fulcrum? Who is the good guy? Tom Keene? Reddington? IS THERE A GOOD GUY? What does Red want with the assassin lady with all of the disguises. Why did he send Mr. Kaplan, I thought she was simply for body disposal and bloody cleanups?
This is why I don’t recap The Blacklist anymore. It’s getting too hard to follow for me at times but it’s so good! I can’t tear my eyes away to recap! Continue reading
Tonight on WWHL we have Scheana Marie Shay talking Vanderpump Rules, posting alert, I will not be recapping Vanderpump Rules tonight. I still have conflicts with other programming and will recap it tomorrow instead. Also I had a rough day out in the world today and with all my Lent obligations, I should probably not fight the exhaustion and just surrender to sleep soon.
As for the WWHL schedule, I am really excited about the line up. Lisa Rinna will be on tomorrow to talk about the latest episode of Intervention, errrr I meant RHOBH. And if it really is live perhaps we will get some insight about the reunion.
On Wednesday, Jane Lynch will be on and everyone needs to send in questions for her about what it was like to work with Nene. I’m dying to know. Kenya, Derek J and Miss Lawrence will be on when RHOA returns next Sunday.
Mark your Calendars for Monday when two bowls of crazy show up at the same time. It’s Kristen Doute AND GG Gharachedaghi together. I die. I need this show to be an hour already. Continue reading
I enjoyed Celebrity Apprentice for the most part this season, but I’m ready for the finale because I just have to many things to watch on Monday nights right now. Speaking of scheduling issues, I will be recapping Vanderpump Rules tomorrow instead of tonight. After this show, I’m going to curl up on the coach and listen to the rain (maybe sleet?) and veg out for the night. Atlanta shut the city down due to potential snow. I’m not sure how it was supposed to snow since it’s been around 40 degrees almost all day, but in Atlanta, we don’t have weathermen anymore. We have SEVERE WEATHER TEAMS who scare us to death pretty much every week with tornados, and lightning and ice possibilities, etc. They actually now seriously recommend we all don helmets during tornado season. I’m not kidding! Anyway, I hope those of you with real snow issues are warm and safe! Let’s get on with the show!
Leeza and Geraldo are shown shooting their commercials. Leeza got really lucky with the Jonas kid. He’s running the camera crew like a finely oiled machine. Meanwhile, over on Team Geraldo, Lorenzo and Geraldo are still measuring their dicks.
Before a commercial break they do a teaser about #PhoneGate so maybe we will see some footage tonight! Continue reading
The first hour is a list of top fights and other crap from all the seasons. It’s filler. But I’m glad because I am not ready to start recapping. Kenya Moore had the fourth worst campaign of all time with the Hawaiian Buns photobomb with the baby with the bun fetish. Kenya also came in second in the boardroom backstabbing list. I suppose these are accomplishments.
Okay, it’s the second hour. Time to watch Vivica Fox get sent home. Wow, after firing the other team altogether, Trump still is not done firing people. He is going to fire one of the final three right now. Donald Trump asks Vivica why she should stay. She really has no reason. Leeza and Geraldo are the obvious choice. Even Vivica knows this. Vivica says Leeza is a better competitor she is. Vivica cries again. Vivica has done the hormonal cry every boardroom. Trump fires Vivica. She basically quit. I think we all saw the writing on the wall.
The Final Task: The gang goes to Universal Orlando Resort on Trump’s private jet. They are going to shoot a commercial selling vacation packages.
Leeza and Geraldo are old friends who love each other. Trump’s jet is a bit smaller than I expected. It’s lovely. But I don’t think it’s his main jet. Continue reading
