There is some crazy stuff floating around the blogs and tabloids this week. I appreciate that most of you emailed me or tweeted me to get my thoughts. The number of people asking questions has reached critical mass so I will address three of them here. But first, let’s review commenting rule #3.
3. I think I heard or read something once about…
Much like links, I don’t want to hear about what you heard or read somewhere else. Please comment on it there. I try to do my best to post facts along with my opinion. If you post some random shit you read “somewhere” people here start thinking I am rubber stamping someone else’s content. I don’t have time to verify other people’s assertions. If you read something earth shattering somewhere else, EMAIL ME and I will take a look at it. Otherwise comment wherever “somewhere else” is.
Rumor Number One: The RHOA have banned together to save Porsha’s job.
Porsha Williams was the first person in the history of the Real Housewives franchise to be evicted from a reunion. Her behavior was described my sources as “mentally unstable.” Bear in mind her mental stability was being measured on a scale from Caroline Manzo to Kelly Bensimon. She was ejected from the show and her contract for the upcoming season was tossed in the trash. She no longer works for Bravo.
Some of y’all really believe that Nene and Phaedra would threaten to walk when this whole set up was their idea? They knew better than to go off on Kenya, so they set poor, dumb, little Porsha to do their dirty work. Now suddenly y’all believe they give a crap if Porsha is on the show next season? Cynthia has already left Team Nene to play for Team Kenya. Kandi is not fond of Kenya because she is BFFs with Phaedra but she is not going to put her coin on the line for Porsha. The stories that say that this was all concocted at Kandi’s wedding are even more ludicrous. The last thing on Kandi’s mind was work bullshit. She was celebrating her marriage!
Bravo casting decisions are not based on a straw poll of the housewives. Remember last year Nene wanted Porsha gone. This year she made it happen.
My opinion: Utter Bullshit.
Rumor Number Two: Kenya Faked The Death of Velvet
Really people? It seems that because Kenya’s friend Brandon posted a picture of velvet with his dog on Instagram recently that means the whole thing is a giant conspiracy. Because no one has ever posted a picture of their deceased pet before. This is a mean-spirited rumor meant to harm Kenya started by people who don’t like Kenya.
That said, I do believe that Kenya is playing it for all it is worth and the doggie funeral scene is utterly ridiculous. That said, Sonja has an equally overly dramatic burial at sea on camera for her dog this season. Abby Lee Miller had her dog stuffed and it sat on her dying mother’s bed for several episodes of Dance Moms. The loss of a pet makes people do crazy stuff, especially if they are already attention seekers on a reality show.
My opinion: Mean Spirited Utter Bullshit
In other news, I got several first time moderated comments today that violate rule number seven. I just thought I would post a reminded. 🙂
7. You Do Not Need to Post That You.Are.Leaving.This.Blog.Forever.
Just go quietly. Your foot stomping on the way out only amuses me. GREATLY. Try to scrape up a smidgen of dignity. Hint: fourteen posts swearing this is your last post make me chuckle. But my readers never get to see them. I never claimed to be a nice person.
This post got longer than I expected so I am addressing the Giudice Rumors today in a post immediately following this one.
