There were some minor things that happened last week that I didn’t get around to blogging, mostly because none of it by itself seemed to warrant a blog. I’m cleaning out my post suggestion emails today and I thought I would just list some of them here briefly.
Shah of Sunset premiere has been pulled indefinitely. The premiere was set for October 13th but the post production crew has walked out. A curious thing has been going on with reality show production workers. Primarily in New York and California, production crews on reality TV are pushing to join the unions that normally represent scripted television. The whole reason reality shows became so popular was a writer’s strike by scripted writers many years ago. During the strike, networked hustled to find new things to put on the air and a variety of reality shows, game shows, and singing contests hit the airwaves. Production workers then began to work in reality based TV that was not unionized. Now that reality shows have script writers and production works long insane hours, they are not wanting to work as independent contractors anymore and to be covered like normal employees with medical benefits and sick days. Shahs is produced by a subsidiary of Ryan Seacrest Productions and they supposedly open to negotiations but nothing has happened yet so post production is walking the picket line.
Wendy Williams returns tomorrow. She has promised to literally eat crow on the episode after promising that she would if Kim and Kanye lasted over 72 days. I know she is often wrong about her hot topics, but I still sort of miss her show when it is not on. Will you be watching? I’m hoping this helps me to get up earlier in the mornings and stop staying up all night. Continue reading
Rockin my latest #neneism clutch bag today. More info coming on where u can get yours.
Good Grief! Nene continues to be butt hurt over Wendy Williams throwing some minor shade about Nene Leakes and her financial situation. Nene posted the above picture of a freshly finger-painted clutch with a slur towards Wendy today. BTW, my DVR did not tape the WW show today. Was it a rerun?
If you would like a clutch shaped like a big black cock and coated with red nail polish, Nene assures you she is looking for a way to make that happen. Continue reading
Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams in Happier Times.
This morning on Wendy Williams, Wendy discussed Nene’s Birkin abuse in a very similar way that I discussed it here. Very similar. Okay exactly the same way. She showed the Kim K monstrosity of a handbag and made all the same comparisons. It was almost like someone read my blog and wrote the story. Allegedly. It happens. To add her own unique flair, Wendy compared Nene’s finances to Kim K’s finances. There was an unspoken suggestion that perhaps Nene was trying to be Kim Kardashian. Wendy pointed out that Kim had real money and Nene did not. It’s not nearly as scandalous as I am making it sound. It was shady, but not over the top.
But Nene, who is apparently watching Wendy Williams these days, took to her blog and went on the attack. Which I shall rebut in detail on Wendy’s behalf, because let’s face it, it was my story. Continue reading
We all know that Kenya Moore is on with Andy for a one on one on Sunday. I for one and REALLY looking forward to that interview. Just like Porsha and Nene’s interview, it will be packaged with RHOA to inflate the ratings and we won’t have to wait until 11 p.m. to watch it. I think the show was already filmed before all the Porsha videos hit the Internet trying to save the souls of sinful gay people. Pity. That would have been a good conversation starter.
Click through for the full week’s line-up! Continue reading
And she actually asks some interesting questions. Is she trying to get on Fashion Queens or something similar? What’s up with this?
UPDATE! Just saw a commercial for this episode of WWHL and ANDY BRINGS UP THE INCIDENT AT THE REUNION! Hopefully he lets the Porsha freaks understand she is no longer employed so I can stop getting hate tweets and such. :)
Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams in Happier Times.
Wendy Williams has been a bit messier than usual this week. On Monday’s show she crossed the line big time when she referred to Evelyn Lozada’s son as a cash register! Evelyn, who you may recall had a short tumultuous marriage to Chad Ochocinco in 2012 that ended after Chad got violent with her, is engaged to a very wealthy baseball player name Carl Leo Crawford. Over the weekend she gave birth to his son and named him Carl Leo Jr.
Well, on Hot Topics Wendy said, “Evelyn gave birth to a cash register, I mean a baby boy. I didn’t mean to make that cash register joke, but you see why it’s easy to be said. Evelyn, girl, congratulations.” Then on top of that she insulted her fiancé’s looks! Wendy said, “[Carl] is not a bad looking man, but he certainly wasn’t getting the likes of Evelyn Lozada if he wasn’t playing baseball… take care of your cash register!” She also suggested that Evelyn not sit idly by while raking in the marital dough. She said she needs to open another shoe store like the one she had in Miami.
Really Wendy? What sort of mother insults another woman’s child? Such bad form. Continue reading
Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams in Happier Times.
I’ve been so (good!) busy lately that I have not really told you guys everything there is to tell about a huge drama that has been going on in the Big Apple between Wendy Williams, Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen. Well today, the battle has been won by Wendy Williams and I am ready to spill all the tea as Bethenny Frankel’s talk show has been cancelled after just one (kinda lousy) season.
Let’s start with Wendy Williams point of view. I’ve been harsh at times with Wendy (even though she has mentioned tamaratattles.com on her show before #ChateauSheree) because for a while there she was reporting gossip from a site that shall not be named frequently that has a history of making up outrageous stories for drama/page views. But lately, I have found her show to be a really fun watch. Wendy is established in the NYC daytime talk circuit and pulls commendable ratings. She is humble, relates well to her audience and is extremely good at giving advice on the fly during her ask Wendy segments. She also had a great relationship with Andy Cohen and frequently booked his WWHL guests when they were in town. Continue reading
Today we have two interviews with cast from this seasons Couple Therapy. First John Gosselin on Wendy Williams and then, Taylor and John on Bethenny. This should be good.
John comes out without Liz. Oh. She’s sick. Wendy doesn’t seem to know enough about what is going on with Couples Therapy to ask the right questions. They are rambling on about living in the woods. They talk about Jon firing a weapon when the paparazzi refused to leave his property. Lots of Kate stuff. In the first segment we get nary a word about Couples Therapy which is what we need to tea on, Wendy. /sigh
John says he did Couples Therapy for the free therapy and for a chance for him and Liz to get away from everything have some time for themselves. John reveals that Ghost Face Killah’s name is Dennis. Not a single question about Farrah or Taylor or why he was the last to arrive. Very disappointed in this interview. Bethenny on the other hand goes balls to the wall with Taylor and John. Click through for the tea. Continue reading
Last night on twitter, I came across a tweet from Joyce to her husband. Since I was high on sizzurp for the Mongolian Lung Flu, I perhaps in retrospect went a little overboard with the fangirling out. But y’all know I love me some Michael Ohoven. Anyway, Joyce was headed to Wendy Williams to film today’s show. And sure enough she is listed as being on. But it is starting to look like they didn’t film. Wendy is talking about it being two weeks until the premiere of RHOA.
Yep, for some reason, Wendy did not go live today. Maybe Joyce dashed home to protect her man from the crazy fangirl blogger? I might have ruined Wendy Williams. /sadface
UPDATE! Joyce says Wendy is snowed in somewhere and could not get to the studio. See? TOTALLY NOT MY FAULT!
Kenya Moore is talking about her mystery man that she calls her African Prince. I am not sure I trust her sense of geography enough to believe that they guy is African. I still think she is probably tricking in Dubai. It’s all the rage for D listers right now. Wendy asks her if one day she will get married and have children. Kenya says absolutely. I always feel that when someone says “absolutely” rather than “yes” or “of course” they are lying. Kenya is too old to start a family now. Sorry but that ship has sailed.
Kenya talks about her mother giving her away at age 16. She says he mother made the decision to pretend that she never existed. She has seen her at family functions and her mother just pretends she is invisible. That is sad and explains why Kenya will do anything to be noticed. Continue reading
This is an old photo, not from today’s episode.
First of all, Kyle has added extensions to make her hair longer than Joyce’s. I find this hysterical. She does look fantastic, but it is so transparent. Wendy starts by asking about Baron Hilton getting his face bashed in while at the same party Lindsey Lohan attended. Kyle says that she was not there so she can’t say but she implies that her family has told her Lindsey was behind it.
Moving on to Brandi’s alleged alcoholism. Brandi has made some public statements lately that when the boys go to Eddie’s house, it’s still very hard for her and that is why she drinks. Or the show makes or drink. Or whatever the excuse of the day is. I have my own list of excuses. Yours may vary. Kyle is skirting around that issue too.
Wendy says that Lisa Vanderpump is meaner than ever this season. Kyle says it has been rough. These are things she has seen before but the audience hasn’t. Everything gets softened with an English accent. Continue reading
I’m sorry, but If you are married to this….
Porsha Stewart is on Wendy Williams today talking about the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha begins by giggling about how her mother gave up her master bedroom because she knows that Porsha is used to having lots of space and nice things. Wendy goes in on her right away telling her that her behavior is less than smart. Wendy tells her that Porsha needs to get it together and live on her own. She has been spoiled by her mother and Kordell and she needs to grow up. Porsha says that sometimes when someone knocks you so far down your family and your support system is who brings you back up.
Porsha says that Syre’s mother “you know, moved to LA” so he came to live with them right after they got married. Porsha says she was an independent business woman before they got married and she gave it up to focus on Kordell and his son. Um, how old was she when she got married and what sort of business empire can someone run who thinks there are 265 days in a year? The divorce will be finalized in 30 days. Porsha has decided to keep her name. Continue reading
