The Southern Charm Cast arrived in NYC today and Shep has already managed to run into Tinsley. He also was out drinking with Austen and Chelsea in the afternoon.
Also, in NYC, Dorinda went to the Tony Awards over the weekend. It didn’t seem like John was there. She looked really good and sober.
Luann took Sonja out on a boat in The Hamptons over the weekend. Luann is a great skipper!
Bethenny is flying to Guatamala today to bring supplies and cash cards and assess the damage personally. She’s been raising money since the volcano erupted and people from her foundation have already been down. Amazing.
In New Jersey, Teresa Giudice competed in a body building competition that was filmed for RHONJ. I think female body building contests are gross. Not really a fan of male body builders either. I’m spare you the photo, it’s on IG.
Over on the west coast, it was pride weekend in WeHo and of course it was a big episode or two for the upcoming season of Pump Rules. The theme for SUR this year was disco, or the 80s (that would be a really bad theme for a Pride Party) or something super tacky. The whole thing seemed very juvenile. But the important thing is that either LVP has gotten a lot of face work and some new extra large dentures, or she has a new social media person that feels like she needs A LOT of facetuning. I tend to think it’s the latter because Todd looks really odd too.
In Atlanta news, Kandi and Todd are also in NYC this week. Remember that old talk show thing Kandi did online a few years ago? I forgot what platform it was on, but it was Kandi Koated Nights and basically it was Kandi talking about sex and her sex life. It was pretty detailed and probably how people found out that Kandi is, um, very sexually ambitious. Well the show has been put on Bravo and will air on Sunday nights (probably late night). Kandi has always had production deals with Bravo in her contract and they have first right of refusal on her show pitches. We had heard she was producing a show on another network soon. I believe it was with Marlo, I’ve honestly already forgotten about it. And that’s okay because it is not happening. It looks to me like Bravo decided to offer Kandi her little talk show in exchange for not producing a show on the other network. I don’t see this appealing to the Bravo crowd and I’ve watched all her other shows. I think this is more about keeping Kandi off the other network and Bravo is not expecting much.
Cynthia’s daughter Noelle is modeling in a fashion show in NYC this month. She looks great just like her Mama.
After cancelling a couple of shows recently due to Gregg’s health problems (apparently he was in the hospital for two weeks) she is back on the road. She will be in Miami around the same time Cynthia will be in NYC with Noelle, so I have a feeling we won’t have much filming for RHOA until July first when all of the crew is returning.
Kim Z has a new “song” called Wig. It has that techno thing to cover up the fact that she can’t sing. I’m not talking about autotune I’m talking about when the vocals sound like they are from a robot. Excuse my musical ignorance. There are great lyrics like, “My wig, my wig, my wig, YAY!” This is the world we live in.
RHOOC has two new housewives. I don’t care. They are all interchangeable for the most part. I’ll get to know them when the season starts. The new trailer was out, I haven’t bothered to watch it. The new Bravo photos are out and the housewives of Orange County put up their press photos. Vicki had to remove comments from her photos because people were losing their minds about her “new face.” First of all there is video of her from this past weekend or the one before where she looked normal. Bravo airbrushes and edits the living fuck out of these photos. I remember Asa being very upset with her photo one year. They had changed her nose, complexion and hips if I recall correctly to make her “less ethnic.” So I think that is all it is. These Bravo publicity photos are always bad.
These are some of the bits and pieces from social media that standing alone don’t make for a great post, but are still things you might want to know.
Here are two photos of Vicki from about a week ago.
