Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon and Azealia Banks were apparently on the 100 person guest list a at Leah McSweeney’s RHONY premiere party. In an interview with Daily Mail, Leah said, “Me and Ramona are in a good place right now. I love that. Yes, and hell maybe has frozen over, I don’t know. I think it was so much conflict going on around us in the world. I’m like, Oh, my God, I can’t be – I need to make this work. I need for us to have some kind of common ground with each other and we made it happen.” Daily Mail also reports that Eboni K. Williams was her good friend from before the show. I’m not sure I buy that. But we shall see. Also I mentioned in my recap that Leah and Eboni had a falling out on the show. I was sick with some weird thing that went away yesterday and inadvertently confused Eboni With Heather Thomson.
Over in Potomac, Karen and Ray Huger are renewing their vows this Saturday. And yes, of course it will be on Potomac. It will probably be the finale. These housewives never believe the housewives vow renewal curse. They will learn.
And Some Exclusive News…
I have a couple of tidbits of EXCLUSIVE information. First of all, Nene Leakes, as I previously told you, was dropped by her big four talent agency, her agent, her lawyer, and her manager when she left RHOA on bad terms. She recently signed with People Store in Atlanta. It’s one of the kinds of casting agencies I joined when I was 19 am “modeling” and doing extra work in movies. I could sign there tomorrow. You could to. She is telling everyone that she wants to be “the face of a network.”
Another EXCLUSIVE tidbit concerns Vanderpump Rules. As you know my best source HATES this show and cannot believe it is coming back. This is the latest intel, “It’s going to be all the remaining people living at home and chatting. Basically like The Hills: New Beginnings on MTV which Evolution Media also produces. So the new theme is I’m young-ish, living in a nice home in the valley, raising my family, with inserts of Lisa house hopping to get her check too. No more pretending to work at bar. Once the viewers see these new homes and lifestyles they can put two and two together.
UPDATE! ONE MORE EXCLUSIVE: Tardy For The Party Is Cancelled. Bravo/Kim Biermann didn’t come to terms on a renewal. Many options: first a four year, than a two year (with options each year) then just a farewell send off. The financials didn’t make sense. The contract is officially expired, she is no longer going to appear on Bravo at this time.
RHOBH’s Erika and Tom Girardi’s house was put on the market today for $13 million as the trustees attempt to liquidate their assets. The money will then be distributed to some of the many clients that appear to have been swindled out of their settlements. Erika and most likely her son have moved into this $1.5 million dollar bungalow near the interstate. It is quite lovely inside and out nonetheless.
Southern Charm/ Winter House news: Craig Conover’s relationship with Natalie did not survive him filming Winter House. It seems that he has been drinking an awful lot during COVID and Natalie had enough. Shep and his girlfriend are still together and seemingly happy. Also, Naomie’s cat Gizmo passed away. And she is moving to NYC with her boyfriend Metul.
Today’s Talk Shows
Lala Kent was on Wendy Williams today pushing her new book, Give Them Lala. She told Wendy the chapters in her book are not about giving advice. It’s about difficult situations in her life, like getting an abortion, and better times to come like meeting Randall. She talked about how their wedding had to be rescheduled twice and is currently pretty much shelved. She’s not really focused on a big wedding now that they have their baby. She is excited about showing the baby off on the show. She doesn’t feel the need to get married anymore, it seems as though it is more important to her man than it is to her. She says they may still get married or not. She’s very happy with her life right now. She was VERY poised and intelligent during the interview.
Eboni K. Williams guest hosted The Real again today. She and Garcelle talked about what it is like to be the first black housewife on a franchise. Eboni said it was not part of her job description to educate all of the white people about social justice. Ramona’s comment about “the help” was briefly mentioned.
That’s enough for now. Let’s chat in comments.
