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? Okay now click through for your horoscope. Oh and sorry about your luck. 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 »
Um… look closely. Found this on the web. WTF?
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?

I hate when “people” steal my blogs and put them on their site. I always just link an excerpt and provide a link to the entire story. HOWEVER. This is the best RHONY blog I have ever read. It is too good just to excerpt. I want everyone to CLICK THIS LINK and read the whole thing. Then come back here and talk to me. BTW, I don’t believe Sonja knows a thing about the casting. That is not the point. The point is I think I might love this Roger Friedman guy and I bet you might too.
Carole with the cute old mail guy was cute.
Sonja on a date…She’s very demanding. She tells the guy that sensual activities should stay behind closed doors because he kissed her on the cheek. Wonder what he thought of the trip to St. Bart’s footage. He’s like a lamb lining up to be slaughtered. But his name is Richard, and as a rule, that’s a bad enough sign right there.

Wendy Williams just said on her hot topics this morning that Jill Zarin secretly taped the entire interview with Andy Cohen in order to sell the tapes to gossip blogs. The gossip bloggers instead contacted Andy to tell him what was going on. I’ve done a search of the likely sources for this story and can’t find anything. Wendy almost never has an independent source. However, she is on good terms with Andy and they often appear on each others shows. Wendy says her source claims that there is no way Jill is returning to Bravo. If true this is an incredibly crazypants situation because Jill has been saying that she was concerned that Bravo was trying to set her up by pretaping the show. It’s the old double cross. Also if true, you would think someone would buy the tape and we will eventually have access to the unedited version. Continue reading »
I’m not sure I can blog this tonight after just blogging RHONY, but I’ll give it the good old college try. Andy starts with asking Jill what she has done to her face. She says she’s taking Omega-3 and Andy says, no really, what are you injecting into your face? And Jill tells him Pat Wexler. Andy says she looks great. Was that a promo for Pat Wexler that Andy just had to get in there before things get dirty?
Jill asks Andy why she was fired. Andy is all like Jesus, Jill. How many times do we have to talk about this? Andy said that the last reunion was so toxic they knew they could not bring everyone back because the relationships were not going to change. Hope springs eternal for a RHONJ shakeup. Jill said it felt like a death. She felt like Andy was “her parents” (because that is not weird at all) and that he liked Bethenny better. She was also hurt that Andy likes Giggy better than Ginger. Those would be dogs, by the way.
Jill just said she has learned to let things go. I wait for the lightning to strike her but God apparently is not watching. Jill is doing the polar opposite of letting things go. She hasn’t stopped whining about it for a full year. Now she is asking Andy if now, looking back at the ratings he realizes he made a mistake in letting them go. Oh my Lord in heaven. Jill is clueless that she is one of the least liked housewives in Bravo history. Continue reading »
WordPress seems to have eaten my first paragraph. I’m sure it wasn’t important. Let’s just dive in. Luann and Jacques watched the pirate episode together! I’d love to have been a fly on that wall. But before we can get the dirt on that off camera event, Andy wants to stir the pot. So he reminds Ramona that she made a lot of comments about Luann being a girl who likes to party. Ramona says something that seemed innocent enough,”Luann loves her men and she can’t keep her hands off them. And you can take that however you want. That’s all I’ll say.” But this doesn’t sit well with the Countess (silent o). Luann sort of loses her cool and wants to know what Ramona is insinuating. Luann begins to strongly imply that she has all kinds of dirt on what Ramonja got up to on their nights out in St. Barths and that Ramona doesn’t want to go there. Luann tells Ramona, “You’re no goodie two shoes!” Ramona makes some out of the blue remark about never having been in an open relationship like Luann (And Carole, but she doesn’t mention Carole..yet). Luann is hurt by the comment and wants to know why Ramona is out for blood. Luann made a mistake and it was hard for her and Jacques to get past. I’m bored with this topic. Luann polished the pirate’s peg leg. Jacques still in the picture according to Luann. Andy invited Jacques to the reunion and he declined. That seems odd for someone who likes the camera as much as Jacques Move along, Andy. Continue reading »
