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 »
Um… look closely. Found this on the web. WTF?
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 »
Andy asks Carole why she did the show. I loved her response. “As a journalist it appealed to me. Like most journalists we are attracted to spectacle. Whether it is politics or war. ” There has been speculation she was under cover on a journalism assignment. And they show the scene where Carole is all high and mighty about the term ‘Indian”. It’s hard to look worse than the Countess (silent o) but it seems Bravo is doing their best to make Carole look bad in this retrospective. I love Luann’s dress, btw. If I had the birth certificates on my Choctaw ancestors I would qualify for lots of money. Unfortunately, us Indians didn’t have birth certificates back then. I’m okay with Indian as a term Carole. While it is a misnomer, it’s what we have always called it.Technically this is Carole’s segment and Luann is trying to upstage her though. Something about earrings. As I pause the show Ramonja looks really bored waiting for their turn. ANNNNNND we have our first plug. It was from Luann for Life & Style. Carole is a fucking PRINCESS Luann. I don’t know why you think she borrows clothes. She fucking rich. Not Nene Leakes rich, but you know, ACTUALLY RICH. LOL Luann mentions Life & Style again. CONTRACT MUCH? To which Carole replies,” it’s not Vogue” Touche. We are really focused on Princess Carole from the outset. Makes sense she is much beloved and ratings gold for all of the opposite reasons housewives are usually loved. I am hoping Andy takes notice. Continue reading »
Wow, there are a whole lot of assholes on the Internet. I mean I get that people on reality shows, particularly on Bravo are pretty much begging to be mocked. I get it. I mock them myself. What I don’t get is how invested in hatred some people are. Aviva Drescher did a cover for a new magazine called Gladys. She was listed as one of 40 people the magazine found inspirational. They shot some lovely pictures and recognized her for her work with the charity, One Step Ahead Foundation. She posted the pictures on her Facebook page and almost immediately people began saying really vile things. Why were those people on her Facebook within minutes of the pictures being posted? What is wrong with people? Anyway, it’s a lovely picture and Aviva really does a lot for charity.
It’s time for the finale of RHONY! I think this season was the perfect length. I got to know, and mostly love the three new ladies, and I’ve had enough Ramonja to last a lifetime. The mysterious ping-pong trophies scene with Carol last week has now been made clear. Carole hosted a ping-pong tournament which is perfectly normal princess behavior I guess. However, it was Heather who was the ping-pong queen. Aviva really needs to just ignore Ramona. Pretty much everyone needs to ignore Ramona. Can we just talk about something else? Anything else? Heather is right about that. Also, Heather’s husband is hot. Just throwing that out there.
Now we have to see how well Heather handles Sonja. Sonja agrees with Heather and opts for the um, hotter, toaster oven. Everything went great! This means something is definitely wrong. Shouldn’t Sonja want the one with just her? I thought the one with just Sonja was more Sonja than the others. It seems maybe when Sonja is by herself she’s less of a bitch than she is when Ramona is around to get her riled up. Plus she seemed oddly sober. Crisis averted. Point for Heather. Continue reading »
After watching Wendy Williams this morning, I’m trying to solider on and watch today’s episode of Anderson Cooper. He watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion last night. Really? I thought he was above all that. He read three tweets about the reunion and two of them were anti-Teresa. Anderson got so worked up watching he had to take an Ambien to fall asleep. Anderson says it is an awful show and everyone is so hateful and mean. He can hardly believe he has to watch two more episodes! Oh, Anderson. I’m watching this show because Ramona from RHONY is going to be on and I am dying to see how Anderson treats her. As it stands now Ramona pretty much hates everyone except Sonja this season. Let’s see what AC has to say about Ramona’s behavior. Continue reading »
Poor Sonja is not going to get what she wanted, or apparently much of anything, in the divorce. When I look at Sonja crying in her house, all I can think is yard sale. Take all those dresses to a consignment shop. Put some of those dust collecting tchotchkes on Ebay. Sell a few paintings. Clearly the toaster oven market is in a slump, Sonja! Think outside the toaster oven box! Luann was called in to hold her hand as she put a couple paintings in storage (read hides them from the property inventory) and the art woman (who is usually there to SELL paintings not store them) tried to paint the picture as a new beginning. Luann’s helpful comment? “It looks really empty in this room now.” The irony that Luann hawks an etiquette book is lost on no one by now.
I love that Heather (And Aviva) both have charities that they are passionate about. Most of the time the housewives just seem to “do charity work” by going to luncheons and writing the occasional check. Continue reading »
