It did not take long at all for “reality shows” to lost all sense of reality. Flipping tables, infidelity rumors, neck-rolling wig-pulling knockdown drag-out fights are what we want to see apparently. Genuinely crazy people are fascinating. The Scary Island episode was one of RHONY’s highest rated episodes. Teresa’s table flipping scene may be what kick started the long-term success of RHONJ. Each new housewife since has tried to top the previous insanity. Felons were cast, and felonies were committed while filming. More is more.
Enter Kenya. Allegedly, Kenya was neither rolling in the dough or living in Atlanta when she magically got cast as a Real Housewife of Atlanta. But she had a plan. She was banking on a stunt double boyfriend, a house that her landlord claimed she could not afford and a whole lot of insanity . And it appears to still be working for her.
I have often said that the powers that be at Bravo care very much about the number of comments on the official Bravo blogs. Lea Black would not spend nearly the amount of time she does publicizing hers if it didn’t affect her in some way. Kenya more gets the lion’s share of the comments on the RHOA official blogs. And she does it by pissing us off. She thrives on being a hypocrite. She acts like a maniac and then chastises others for similar behavior. Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Remember on one of those Real Housewives of New York vacations from hell a few seasons back where they saw some sort of fortune teller? I think it was in Morocco because I remember Luann translating it for Ramona because it was in French. The fortune teller lady told Ramona that her husband was cheating. Luann translated it as Mario having another woman in his life. Well, if it wasn’t true then, it seems even more likely now. Continue reading
Perhaps our wildest dreams have come true. It seems that Ramona Singer went on an African Safari DURING FILMING and managed to get attacked by a lion or something. I’m not even kidding.
On Friday, Countess Luann called in to VH1′s The Gossip Table and spilled some interesting tea about what is going on with the current filming of RHONY… Continue reading
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.

Um… look closely. Found this on the web. WTF?
Woke up this morning to this picture in my inbox.
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.
Alright let’s see how much of this “lost footage” needed to be found. So far the first clip about Ramona finding out about Aviva’s leg could stay lost.
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. 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.
