It didn’t take an incredibly long time after I started to write this blog before I got some REALLY good sources. I was the very first site to post about Nene Leakes being on Glee, because a very good source fell into my lap. I was a tiny little nothing of a blog then. I don’t know why that happened. But anyway, I bring it up to say since I have started doing more Blind Items, sources are popping up all over the place. Like this one.
As we know, every year, housewives need a storyline. Maybe they are building a house. maybe they are going to fake a disease, maybe they are going to come out with a line of booze, or maybe they are going to announce their engagement to their new man.
Oh wait. About that last thing. There is a pecking order for Bravo weddings. And engagements. Timing is everything. Don’t believe me? Just ask Gretchen. Tamra got the Wedding by Bravo of her dreams and Gretchen’s contract was not renewed. Be very careful when you schedule an engagement on housewives. It’s a cutthroat business!
Which brings us back to Fran. THIS FRAN. I am now being told that Fran wanted to announce her engagement at the end of the season. It would have been a MAJOR SHOCKER for many reasons. But fellow housewife, Tess came in hot with a new beau as her storyline and announced HER engagement first. Fran was already mad about the usual housewife crap but between this and another betrayal by Bubbles, and some personal struggles, FRAN LOST HER MIND. It was made clear you were either Team Fran or Team Tess and nearly everyone turned on Tess and TRIED TO DESTROY HER RELATIONSHIP!
Unlike the Gretchen and Tamra situation, Fran was not angling for a marriage by Bravo. She just wanted a HUGE SHOCKING ANNOUNCEMENT to bring in the ratings. Poor Tess wants the whole bonanza with Bravo but Fran has firmly sabotaged that Well Tess be the next Gretchen? Wait and see.
I have a third Blind Item to follow this. It also relates to THIS ONE. After this triad, these names will no longer be used for these housewives in future blinds. I’ll pick new ones.
