Even after promising us there wouldn't be any new Housewives, we're hearing rumors that Bravo is continuing to cast in other cities. Also, people are buzzing about Jill Zarin's new look, and Gretchen Rossi's legal trouble. And finally, the moment you never knew you were waiting for: the release of Simon van Kempen's AWFUL song, "I Am Real."The Real Housewives of Where?
According to Perez Hilton
, Bravo has cast The Real Housewives of Scottsdale
(Arizona) and has already started shooting, which is a lot further than a lot of Housewives they cast make it. The cast is rumored to include Alejandra Nash, wife of NBA star Steve Nash.
Bravo is also rumored to be casting The Real Housewives of Las Vegas
, which sounds about as appealing as The Real Housewives of Miami
. Apparently Bravo passed on casting in Chicago (awww) but is rumored to be looking at a female impersonator in Las Vegas. [The Las Vegas Review Journal
]Gretchen Rossi Being Sued for Fraud
Hey, remember Gretchen Christine Beaute? The ol' business venture isn't going well for Gretchen and Slade. Gretchen's former make-up artist, friend, and business partner, Ronann Myers is suing Gretchen and Slade for $100k in damages, etc. Myers claims that she and Rossi had a verbal agreement to split the profits from "Gretchen Christine Beaute" 50/50, but that Rossi and Slade schemed to defraud her out of her interest in the make-up line. UGH. It's complicated and you can read all about it on Radar Online
Vampire Liquid Facelift
People have been talking about Jill Zarin's new look, and just how new parts of it might be. She showed up on Watch What Happens Live
looking like a Madonna "Blonde Ambition" throwback in her shapewear. People were talking about facelifts, nose jobs, etc. but Jill Zarin sets the record straight on Wendy Williams
:Simon van Kempen's New Single, "I Am Real"
Like Vanessa Williams, I saved the best for last. We're almost used to Real Housewives releasing dance tracks now, but what about the househusbands? Simon took to the recording studio to say what nobody cared to listen to in this complete turd of a song:
If you couldn't even make it to the first chorus (and who could blame you?), here are some highlights from the lyrics:
"When wives attack behind my back
They trash me on their Twitter
"You should live your life for you
Not how others tell you to,
What you see is what you get
and don't you get me yet
And watch out, the song REALLY takes off around the 2:05 mark! And by "takes off" I mean "becomes ear torture."
Okay, I have to go wash my brain out with boiling water now.(Images courtesy of Bravo)
