NEW YORK – July 20, 2015 – Two of Bravo Media’s favorite OG Housewives from Atlanta and New Jersey return as “Don’t Be Tardy…” season four premiers on Sunday, August 16th at 10p.m. ET/PT and the second season of “Manzo’d with Children” immediately follows at 10:30p.m. ET/PT. From high school graduations to wedding bells, both Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Caroline Manzo must learn to let go and let live as their children embark on the next chapter of their lives.
I love both of these shows and having them back to back at 10 pm solves so many of my issues regarding being able to keep up with 30 minute shows. I hate 30 minute shows, but having them back to back doesn’t fuck with my viewing time like one 30 minute show does. Finally, Bravo gets it right and solves the viewing problems I have with half hour shows. I still think they should both be an hour long.
This season on Don’t Be Tardy… :
Kim’s life continues to speed up as she juggles six kids, three new dogs and a possible move from Atlanta for Kroy’s football career.
THREE NEW DOGS? WTF? Though I keep thinking about getting Banjo a girlfriend.
This season is all about growing up as Kim and Kroy’s eldest daughter Brielle graduates from high school and begins to plan life outside of the nest, while Ariana continues amaze her parents with her work ethic, but also terrify them with her boy-crazy behavior. Always the matchmaker, Kim continues to help her friends with their love lives, from the family Chef, Tracey, to her confidant and stylist, Shun, she is determined to find their soulmates.
Kim’s matchmaking skills are on par with Patti Stanger, who we thankfully no longer have to watch as her show has been axed from Bravo. But Kim’s matchmaking attempts are always HEEEEELARIOUS. So, I’m excited. And it’s always great to see Shun.
As Brielle’s relationship with her boyfriend, Slade, gets more serious, Kim and Kroy want to get to know the potential “in-laws” better and bring the two families together for some fun in the sun. With family trips to Destin, Florida, Los Angeles and Kim’s hometown of Windsor Locks, Connecticut, this Biermann bonanza is chalk-full of hilarity and hijinks, so hold on to your wigs for a wild ride.
OMG Three trips? I can hardly contain my excitement.
This season on Manzo’d with Children:
It’s a season of change for this Garden State clan as each member takes a step towards independence, leaving Caroline to find out if she has succeeded in her beloved role as the Manzo Matriach. As Lauren prepares to wed fiancé Vito, Caroline and Al cope with the feeling of losing their only daughter and wonder if she is ready to face a new life without daddy’s credit cards. Chris decides to make his lifelong passion of becoming a children’s book author a reality and moves out of the house and back to Hoboken for some creative space.
Ha! Gotta love Chris for figuring out how to not fake live in the house during filming. And artist does need his space.
Albie is hoping to hit the “jackpot” with his latest entrepreneurial endeavor, exploring Colorado’s cannabis business.
I keep kicking myself for not finding an investment opportunity in the legal pot trade. Anyone with a brain and some cash should have gotten in early on this. I hope we see Colorado.
With the nuptials fast approaching, the Manzos also spend more time getting further acquainted with their soon-to-be in-laws, the Scalias; a family just as sharp-tongued, but even more traditional in their Italian ways than the Manzo’s. These two families go on a joint vacation to the Amalfi Coast just weeks before the big day, but their relationship may be more olive oil and water than spaghetti and meatballs. With everyone moving in different directions, the Manzo’s might not always see eye-to-eye, but they remain thick as thieves.
OMG! Bravo does love them some Caroline! An Amalfi Coast trip on Bravo’s dime? Yes please.
Then later in August Below Deck returns…
NEW YORK – July 21, 2015 – Bravo Media returns to the high seas as season three of “Below Deck” premieres on Tuesday, August 25 at 9p.m. ET/PT. The series follows a group of crewmembers living and working aboard “Eros,” a 161’ mega-yacht during the charter season in the Bahamas and kicks off with a half-hour preview special airing on Monday, August 10 at 10p.m. ET/PT.
WAIT WHAT? Weren’t we promised a Mediterranean season? Is that still happening? Why are we back in the Caribbean and the Bahamas no less? Can’t you practically walk there from Lauderdale during low tide? UGH.
Another summer brings another charter season full of champagne, caviar and tropic thunder. Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain (chief stew), Amy Johnson (second stew) and Eddie Lucas (bosun) return from last season,
Sigh, oh great, Kate again. Thrilled to see Amy and Lucas back.
along with new crew members Don Abenante (second engineer/deckhand), Connie Arias (deckhand), Raquel “Rocky” Dakota (third stew), Emile Kotze (deckhand) and Leon Walker (chef) to make life aboard a 11 million dollar private, luxury yacht, an unforgettable experience for their guests. The crew quickly learns they must check their egos at the dock in order to provide first-class service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests.
Um, noe. Not they do not. If history is any example they will be assholes who shit talk the guests behind their backs. After last season, I’m surprised they got anyone willing to pay. Which is probably why Claudia and Cynthia are guests for one outing. Bravo placeholders are called in when cruises can’t sellout. They better not trash team pretty and friends!
From elicit affairs, to crew member firings and technical failures on the yacht, the drama on the high seas becomes too much for some of them to handle. As tensions reach a boiling point between Kate and new chef Leon, Captain Lee calls on chef Ben Robinson for help.
Poor Leon, he never stood a chance. He was nothing more than a stand-in until Ben’s other job ended. Le Sigh.
So, yeah, yeah, yeah, I know you hate the Manzos.. and normal people, and Kim, but you will love Below Deck. This year they may one up themselves and actually hit a guest or murder one in their sleep!
