Lisa and Lenny have been having a hard time lately fighting city hall to be allowed to tear down their 7 million dollar home on Star Island. The local historical society wants the home to be designated a historical landmark which would cause the couple to abandon plans to tear down the existing home and rebuild a newer swankier model.

I admit it. I’ve gotten lazy during this whole Jodi Arias Trial. All I really had to do was put up a daily update and sit back and wait for folks to show up and discuss it to death in the comments. I suspect that a lot of my sources are busy with the trial too because there hasn’t been that much housewives stuff reported to me. To carry on with my lazy reporting, I’m going to do a hodge-podge of housewives updates here. Hopefully, my housewives fans are still out there and haven’t completely given up on me! Click through for the tea on RHONY, RHONJ, RHOM and RHOA. Continue reading »
How did I not now that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was an educated, intelligent author? I have been enjoying watching him and other minor celebrities (he’s the only household name on the show, the others are…um..not) on Splash! There, I said it. For reasons I am not very clear on, Kareem has written a nearly 3000 word article for HuffPo about the real housewives. It’s interesting. But for today’s too long, didn’t read, Internet user, I will include some of my favorite parts below for those who don’t want to read the whole thing. And for the new folks that like reading such things I will direct you to another post I made, which is one of my favorites about Camille Paglia’s take on The Real Housewives franchises. After that story was brought to Bravo’s attention, Andy had Camille on WWHL. I’m predicting we see Karrem on WWHL soon.
EDIT: Kareem’s article is quite lengthy. It is not my intention to twist the intent of his writing to conform to my perceptions of it. I encourage you all to go to the link and read the entire thing and not rely on my extractions and commentary as representative of his opinion or overall assessment. I simply picked the most interesting points he made from my perspective to review. Your interpretations may vary widely.
Okay first you need to pick your favorite housewife. Sure, it’s like picking your favorite serial killer, but just do it. Think really hard. Choose one. Got it?

This little gem is from ButYoureLikeReallyPretty.com which is a great place to look around on a dreary Sunday when you are trying to avoid thinking about the fact you have to go to work tomorrow. So go check it out. This is just the tip of the delicious iceberg. You can follow the artist there at @goRyanGo AND he’s going to be a bartender on WWHL! Continue reading »
Tonight Andy has 99 problems and they are all bitches, it’s called the Bravo upfronts! It seems like just yesterday that Sheree Whitfield got fired just before the Bravo Upfronts. But in reality that was a full year ago. Last year at this time, the upfronts party was televised on WWHL. That was a straight up disaster! But live party or no, the upfronts are usually very informative. We can tell who is coming back for another season by who shows up. Here is the tea…
UPDATE: Kim Richards and Heather Dubrow were both reportedly absent from upfronts. No idea if they had a note. Did Heather have a prior commitment or did she quit mid-season a la Kim Zolciak? (Update again, Heather says she has spring break with the kids already planned. Didn’t Kim Z already use that excuse once?) Has Kim Richards finally had enough? Or is this yet another accommodation?

My favorite Miami Herald writer, Lesley Abravanel has contacted Lisa Hochstein for a short interview about the lawsuit that recently came to light where Lisa sues a blog commenter. According to Lisa she is aquainted with the person who made the libelous comment and that is what caused her to sue. Lisa tells The Herald, “This was filed awhile ago, and somehow it surfaced. This isn’t something I was going to publicize. It’s not the kind of exposure I was looking to get. I do want to put out there that I get it, that I’m out there on TV and there’s gonna be anonymous bloggers and posters who will say what they want about me.” Continue reading »
Very few things on the Internet surprise me anymore, but today’s Real House of Miami news has left me a bit dumbfounded. When Stoopid Housewives was sued by a media group for copyright infringement, I sort of got it. The more I read about that case, the more it seemed that the plaintiffs were being a bit vindictive. SH took the pictures down when they asked her too. What is really the point of dragging her into the court system and ripping away her anonymity? Sure the have legal standing, but really? It seems like overkill to me. We all dislike it when our content gets stolen but is it really necessary to drag small time bloggers into court over a few pictures at a party?
Then today, Lisa Hochstein decides to sue a COMMENTER on WetPaint about negative comment about her? Oh Lisa. According to TMZ, “Hochstein recently filed a lawsuit against a woman named Jessica Lederman – claiming she suffered “severe emotional distress” after Jessica blasted her in the comment section of an entertainment news website. According to docs, Jessica wrote “Lisa was an escort who also did soft porn in Vegas” … in response to an article about Lisa joining the “Real Housewives” franchise.. But Hochstein says it’s a bold-faced lie and that she’s never been in the escort business or done soft core porn in Las Vegas. Hochstein claims Jessica’s remark damaged her reputation and threatened both her employment and social life.” Continue reading »

Ana Quincoceses Bravo blog about the reunion is very enlightening. It’s well-known that Bravo likes to have a target at certain filming events and the reunion is never an exception. It seems this season, the target turned the tables. Sadly, the Purveyors of Pop are fans of people like Thomas Kramer and Joe Francis so they had the task of trying to save Lea’s behind with editing. I’d like a ten week special called Real Housewives of Miami reunion uncensored were they just run the thing as raw footage.
“Weeks before the reunion I started hearing that Lea was boasting about town that she was “coming after me at the reunion.” I was taken aback because we had never had much conflict. I knew she was upset about my defending Marysol but there was certainly no need for retaliation of that magnitude. There is a saying in Spanish, “Guerra avisada no mata soldados.” It means that when you announce a war ahead of time you don’t get to kill any soldiers. And so I prepared. This soldier would not go down without a fight. It didn’t take very long and I didn’t resort to unethical means or ultra-sleuthing to discover anything. It was all there for the taking to anyone who spent a few minutes researching. I tucked all my findings neatly into the now infamous file folder and hoped I wouldn’t have to use it.”
I’m curious what was in the folder. I assume it is how she met her husband. Her husbands rather heinous clients. The way she …shall we say wear the pants…in the family. Lord knows what else. Continue reading »
