Bravo announced a full slate of new scripted and “unscripted” shows for 2014 today. Although some of the “unscripted” shows sound like repackaged versions of other shows where a bunch of women “attempt to balance their personal and professional lives, ” others sound new and exciting. There is a dating show that films and airs in the same week, a fantastic sounding travel show, and a show set in London! The two scripted shows both seem to have potential, however, is it me or do they just introduce these scripted series and we never see them air?
Click through for the entire list of new and returning shows. Let me know if you Phaedra Parks name in there anywhere…:) Also absent? Real Housewives of Miami. Continue reading

Kim Zolciak-Biermann has been filming her third season of Don’t Be Tardy for some time now and it looks like the finale will be the birth of twins! Kim told E! Online, “I’m having twins and I couldn’t be more excited. I was completely shocked. I
had no idea. It was a natural conception but twins do run in the family so I
guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. I can’t believe I am going to be a mom to six children, it’s going to be very busy but it’s a dream come true.”
I haven’t hopped on the Kim Biermann is pregnant bandwagon for a couple of reasons. One, for anyone who watches her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy, it’s not great surprise. She has said on the show several times that they would be trying for a girl and that she wanted to get pregnant in May or June in order to have the baby after football season ends. Also, I had not yet seen the pictures. Continue reading
Kim is off to her skin doctor for some Botox and Thermage. Kim is going nuts over Christmas decorations and Kroy wants to string popcorn and have a Montana mountain cabin sort of Christmas. Kim is the poster child for materialism, and Kroy is a simple man, with simple needs. Let’s see how this all works out. Kroy wants to buy a real tree and make sentimental ornaments and string popcorn with the kids. Continue reading
Why did I stop watching this show? It sort of slipped off my radar for awhile. I haven’t seen the last several episodes. Whut I miss? Tonight’s episode centers on Brielle. She continues to make poor grades despite being grounded. So somehow Kim convinces Kroy that the best parenting move is to take away all the punishments. I wish my Mom was as bad at the whole parenting thing as Kim is. Kroy suggests taking away her fancy clothes and Twitter and Kim thinks that is downright cruelty! SMDH So Kim pushes Brielle by bringing in a glam squad to do her hair and makeup for Homecoming. Tell me Kroy had to agree to this because it was a planned filming and that he has not lost his damn mind as well.
Kim and her BFF stalk Brielle on her first date. They are so cute. Brielle doesn’t know what trout is. How to pronounce Filet Mignon or THAT SHRIMP USED TO BE ALIVE. Nick, her date is doing his best Rico Suave. Kim is concerned that Brielle is double dipping. Kim and her BFF are like Lucy and Ethel in this scene!
Kim is trying to learn Spanish. She asks the waiter what the Spanish word for taco is. Continue reading
Andy Cohen is trying his hand at primetime tonight with a one-on-one interview with Nene Leakes under the umbrella of his Watch What Happens Live show. This will get great ratings and likely result in more Andy during primetime. Which could be a good thing if he has really good guests and let’s them talk about production.
One of the first things out of Nene’s mouth is, “Is this going to be girl talk?” Let me just stop here to say that there are all types of gay men. Almost every type is wonderful. Almost. But all of those types can be divided into two broad categories. Let’s call the first type the “Miss Lawrence” type. Lawrence refers to himself as Miss Lawrence and dabbles in cross-dressing, at least when it comes to footwear. The other type is the Anderson Cooper type, more masculine than feminine, educated, refined, successful. Andy is in the latter category. He wishes he was Anderson Cooper. He wants to be respected even when he is playing pin the boobies on the housewives with D list celebrities. You don’t refer to him as a girl. He was visibly offended by her remark (although she surely had no intention to do so) and it took him a minute to recover and resume the ass kissing opening dialogue he had prepared. Continue reading

While Kim Zolciak’s spin-off Don’t Be Tardy is off to a great start in the ratings, sadly the Kandi Factory is suffering. As a result Bravo is dumping the series out as quickly as possible moving to put out two new episodes a week giving the flailing show a Sunday night slot after Married to Medicine in addition to the Tuesday night slot after Don’t Be Tardy. Bringing legal action against a cast mate is never appreciated by Bravo and doing so over a song that was made for a Bravo show is major. In addition, Kandi has pulled the song from the winner of last season’s Kandi Factory from Tunecore at the same time she pulled the theme song for Don’t Be Tardy. I suspect that Kandi is striking out at Bravo for refusing her royalties on Kim’s theme song for Don’t Be Tardy. I’m not trying to start a rumor and have no basis for that statement other than an objective assessment of observable facts. I think the legal action may be more of an issue with Bravo than and issue with Kim because she could have gone after Kim at any time before now. It almost seems like Kandi is taking her ball and going home. Will she be renewed for RHOA next season? Do you think she is the one on Nene’s it list? We will know for sure when Nene goes to WWHL on Sunday.
Here is what the Bravo press release has to say about the next two episodes. They sound good to me! Continue reading
Time for a new Don’t Be Tardy…I wish they would do the new episode at 9 instead of 9:30. Kim had great ratings for the premiere, about 1.2 million viewers. I am in love with Shun, Kim’s stylist. Kim wants to recreate her wedding in five days and Shun smiles knowing this is batshit crazy. Kim wants to be on Dancing with the Stars yet can’t dance even a little bit around when Shun tries to teach her a basic step together step thing. Kim and Shun are adorable together. Continue reading
We pick up on episode 2 with Kim’s Mama Drama. Remember when I was the first to break the story on Karen suing for grandparent visitation and then those buttfaces at TMZ sold my story and I sent them a cease and desist and they just laughed and laughed? Well that is where the story is starting on episode two. Also, they want to put a gag order on Karen because she is shopping a tell all book. They are meeting with a lawyer to discuss all of these rich people problems. The lawyer is not Phaedra, it’s real lawyer with big ole lawyer books and degrees on her wall and stuff. Kim is a bit freaked out having to go to court. She says she has never been. I’m surprised as long as she has known Sheree that she hasn’t dragged her in by the wig to court for something. I’m just saying. Kim decides not to tell the girls about Karen’s lawsuit. Countdown to Brielle reading it on TMZ in five, four, three… Sorry Kim, I guess this one is my fault. But it would have come out sooner or later!
It’s Arianna’s Birthday. She is getting so cute. It takes two vehicles to get the tribe to the birthday party. They all go to Sky Zone, a trampoline park. Brielle asks Arianna if she has heard from her grandparents she says Poppi (? I may have that wrong) called and left her a message while she was in school, nothing from Nana. Yes, it did seem staged. Continue reading
Tonight is the night you have all been waiting for! Especially you, Not a Kim Z Fan! It’s the premier of Don’t Be Tardy! My screener only has the first episode so I will be tuned in tonight to see the second one and probably write another post with a recap. I promise not to spoil you too much so you can enjoy the show tonight!
Here we go with episode one of Don’t Be Tardy! This is a very rough cut so I imagine there will be some changes in what you guys see tonight. I am assuming this will be the opening with Kim in the “Falcon’s Jersey” that is nothing more than some red body paint. The theme of the opening seems to be, to borrow a phrase from Phaedra’s show, “Rich People Problems.” The intro begins with, “My mother ruined my wedding, my friends have turned on me and me dream house turned out to be a nightmare…” The wedding eviction, her walkout from RHOA and the rental house move are shown in the opening during the voiceover. Poor Kimberleigh. Poor, poor Kimberleigh. Bless her heart. Continue reading

It’s time for the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion and Andy is wasting no time. The first order of business is to ask Kandi about serving Kim with papers about Tardy for the Party. It sounds almost like Phaedra served the papers on Kim at the reunion! Kandi says that Kim brought that on herself She was no longer going to allow her to benefit from the song. Coincidentally, Funky Dineva, who I believe is a friend of Kandi’s and appears on her Kandi Coated Nights show from time to time recently released the unedited version of The Ring Doesn’t Mean A Thing which has Kim singing with no autotune. Interesting timing, no?
Phaedra wastes no time with the subtle jabs at Kenya saying “everyone up here is a lady,…..well everyone up here is a female.” Kenya has had her sour face on most of the time. Remind me again how I am supposed to understand that she is not taking all of this seriously, Kenya fans? Puhlease. Andy asks Phaedra what her Mama the preacher thinks about her…what did he call it? open attitude? And Phaedra is the first to say the word penis. She says she likes looking at large penises. That’s our Phaedra displaying her knowledge of being a “southern belle” on national television. Continue reading
