Articles for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 1

It‘s a busy day for TV news with a ton of casting announcements and renewals. Let‘s get into it.  Read more »
How about some of today‘s TV news in 300 words?The Office May Get a HeroHeroes‘ alum Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennet on the NBC series, is in talks to guest star on an upcoming episode of The Office. If he takes the role, Coleman (who just shot an upcoming episode of The Mentalist) will play a wholesome government agent. What in the world is a government agent doing on The Office? I wonder if a government agent‘s presence has anything to do with the malfunctioning Sabre printers? Or, perhaps it has to do with Michael Scott‘s exit? The suspense is killing me! [Ausiello] Read more »
So right away, the intro to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sets up that it‘s going to be a little . . . off. The women have cheesy voiceovers saying: "the sun always shines in Beverly Hills, but not on everyone," "everything might look perfect, but it‘s not. It‘s a land of make-believe!" and "this town runs on status, status can come from money, connections, fame, or even looks." And by looks, they must mean lips. It reminds me a lot of a promotional Barbie video I had when I was a kid. It was about going into "Barbie‘s World" and seeing all the cool stuff she got to do. So I guess The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn‘t so different from Barbie‘s World. They all kind of look like they‘re from the same mold.Another weird thing is the theme song, there‘s just glitter, dogs, and no kids. Are there no kids in Beverly Hills? And really they all kind of look the same except two of them have brown hair and one of the brunettes has a British accent. But they‘re holding DIAMONDS!  Read more »
With every Housewives series, features "Before They Were Housewives" galleries so we can look at the ‘wives when they were younger. These galleries are of particular interest to me because now that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are . . . not young, they mostly look the same. So I want to shine some light on pictures of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before they were altered beyond recognition.Kim Richards then:Kim Richards now: Read more »
It‘s Easter so these sugar-coated Housewives of Beverly Hills are planning to haul their decorated eggs to Palm Springs. It‘s a Richards family tradition! So Kyle calls Kim and is like, "sorry for being such a bitch!" but she‘s not really that sorry. But it‘s Easter, when families apologize to each other for being awful so they can be awful again in the near future. In the spirit of Easter in Beverly Hills, Adrienne tells us something to the effect of, "I love my husband, no I don‘t." She‘s irritated that he always likes to "tag along" on all her jet-setting business ventures. Bummer. Lisa talks to her chocolatier about a custom-made chocolate bunny and the chocolatier draws a fabulous penis.  Read more »
This week The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills celebrated Easter, each in their own special way. For some, it was about family, for others, posing with an attractive male model. So let‘s go on our very own Easter Egg Hunt, to find each of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and crack them open!Lisa: SOME REALLY EXPENSIVE BRITISH CANDY that you‘ve never heard ofBy far the most appealing egg, you don‘t care if the crazy candy from the UK doesn‘t taste good; these are desperate times! So what if it makes the other candy feel inferior? It was probably hand-sculpted by elves!  Read more »
The term, "hot mess" was invented to define things like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and particularly this episode. Camille needs attention, the ‘wives went to Vegas, and Taylor is her husband‘s property. And it all ended in a dispute between Camille and Kyle. It‘s getting a little Mean Girls!It started out with Camille playing tennis with her hot, sexy, athletic "guy friend." She needs attention so badly! It was 85% stretching and ball jokes, 15% tennis. Why is Camille acting so sketchy about her male friends, saying "all kinds of sports" and looking off to the side all deviously? Camille is way more into this Nick character than he is into her, but she needs to get her kicks somehow. Next Adrienne introduces the big thing of the episode: Jay-Z is going to be at the Palms and she wants to go and take "the girls." Unfortunately, her husband Paul is still a bit of a clinger and decides the guys should come along as well. Paul is such a bummer. Read more »
Last week was an Easter episode, so the timing is a little off, but in the spirit of Halloween and real life, I‘ve decided to come up with Halloween costumes for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I don‘t know if they even do Halloween in Beverly Hills (or if they do, how) but I have the perfect solution for each one of them. I feel like to say something about masks here would be too mean, so I‘ll refrain.Kim should be: Maria Von Trapp, or anything that gives her an excuse to drag her kids along so she doesn‘t get too lonely. When her kids refuse to dress up in matching curtain outfits and respond to whistle commands, Kim could find a polar bear costume (you know, a sexy polar bear). Then she can float from place to place on a rapidly vanishing chunk of ice. Read more »
If your life was getting too boring, don‘t worry, it‘s Thursday and it‘s time for our weekly dose of the extravagant lifestyles afforded us vicariously through The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Taylor‘s daughter is turning 4, not 40, FOUR, so Taylor is throwing her a birthday party and getting her diamonds. Not rhinestones, not a charm bracelet--diamonds. The creepies over at the jewelry store recommend the Barbie collection, which I didn‘t even know existed. This is not happening! The jewelers convince Taylor that each little girl at the party needs a necklace from the Barbie collection, in addition to Taylor‘s necklace that will match her daughter‘s. As someone who finds a dime on the ground and says, "jackpot!" this is unfathomable. Also, is it just me getting used to them or do Taylor‘s lips look a little less inflated?Lisa VanderPump, my favorite Beverly Hills Housewife, is having her daughter, Pandora home for dinner. Pandora is old enough for diamonds, if anyone is. Max, Lisa‘s 18-year old son, has been getting in trouble so he was sent away to Idaho. This is, apparently, the worst punishment the Brits can come up with.  Read more »
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is fun because A) it‘s like playing with Barbies who hate each other and B) it‘s all play money! So last night we got to attend two fabulous birthday parties for Taylor and Kyle‘s daughters, ages 4 and 2. Let‘s take a look back at the prices that flashed on our screens, and a few things that didn‘t get a cost assigned to them (like an appearance from Giant Elmo).TaylorBarbie collection necklaces$2,375 for 25 party favor necklaces$1,650 for Kennedy‘s sapphire necklace$1,750 for Taylor‘s yellow diamond necklaceTotal: $5,775Barbie, how could you? Read more »
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills should probably be called The Real Housewives of Wherever They Want to Visit because how often are they actually in Beverly Hills? This week they‘re visiting New York, along with the Ghost of Things Camille Thinks Were Said. BLEHHH CAMILLE. Speaking of Bleh (my new nickname for Camille), she wanted her hot friend Nick to come to Hawaii with her. Because those boobs were made for show! So Bleh needs so much attention that she‘s still harping on what she thought Kyle said about her and needs reassurance from Nick that she‘s not "that invisible."  Read more »
In news that is too amazing to let slide, New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice is teaching a seminar. The seminar is titled, "How to Have it All," with no follow-up (ie; "... and lose it all, too," or "... Or At Least Lie About Having it All,"). The class will be taught at the Learning Annex in midtown Manhattan on Jan 10, 2011 and women can participate for just $44.95 each. That‘s a small price to pay for "it all." The seminar advertises Teresa as, "a hero to modern women," and adds that, "Whether you want to get on a reality TV show, write a book, start and run a business, change careers, this inspiring evening with a woman who has 377,000 online followers will get you going in the right direction." [Radar Online]  REALLY? Does the seminar also include how to look completely dead in the eyes in photographs? Or proper table manners? Read more »
Some days I wish I had a thousand TVs. First of all because that would be awesome, but also so that I could smash them like a rock star when I got mad at someone on my TV screen. Since I don‘t have a thousand TVs, I‘ve found that half-heartedly firing a rubber band at the screen works just as well. Here are the top moments from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that made me want to smash the TV like a rock star--an aggravated rock star who watches The Real Housewives. Just to warn you, this article could also be titled, "Some Scary Pictures of Camille (and One of Kim)."Camille re-visits the Vegas trip with Hot Nick. I‘m tired of this woman‘s complaining and it‘s only the fifth episode! It doesn‘t help that she keeps talking about stuff that we would all rather forget about.  Read more »
Why is it that every series of The Real Housewives features at least one Housewife who makes stuff up like it‘s their job? More often than not, it stems from just the right combination of delusion and paranoia, and the other ‘wives call them out on it. Here‘s a look at our favorite Houselies:Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Camille Grammer: what Kyle said.Camille accused Kyle of saying, "why would anyone be interested in you without Kelsey there?" and calling her "insecure." Both of these were taken out of context, even though we didn‘t see the first comment, it just doesn‘t seem likely. The newest addition to the Liars‘ Club has a lot to learn about the power of a good rant but she‘s got the accusation part down. So far, Camille is only guilty of hearing things incorrectly and then twisting them around to reveal her insecurities (but don‘t tell her that). But it‘s still early in the season and I have a feeling Camille has a lot of crazy to give. Read more »
What‘s going on with the Real Housewives of Television? Who declared bankruptcy, whose house got broken into, and who can‘t believe the fight she got in with Camille Grammer? I‘ll tell you! (Okay, that last one is a little obvious)Real Housewife of New York, Sonja Morgan files for bankruptcySad! On Wednesday, Sonja Morgan filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, just like Teresa Giudice, Michaele Salahi (chapter 7, technically), and Blockbuster. She blames the financial trouble on a movie she wanted to produce with Hannibal Pictures starring John Travolta. Well, there‘s your reason right there. Hannibal Pictures sued Sonja Productions for over $7 million. Really? "Sonja Productions"?It should come as no surprise to you that she‘s now considering other typical Real Housewife endeavors, such as producing a clothing line or writing a cookbook. Make it stop! [Wall Street Journal] Read more »
How could we forget last week? Well, in the words of Christina Aguilera, star of Burlesque, "it keeps gettin‘ better." Hide the remote, otherwise it‘s going straight into the TV!Camille, who kind of looks like Skeletor, lures Kyle into an argument, then backs out of it, saying she won‘t allow the other Housewives to "bait me into any kind of argument." Then Kyle brings Kim into it, who freezes up and can‘t even confirm that Kyle didn‘t say the "why would anyone be interested in you" comment. Camille opens it up to the group, "so nobody in this room has said anything about me being insecure?" Taylor admits to it, bringing up the conversation she and Kim had in the airport. Camille gets upset because maybe they talked about her on the plane? She leaves the restaurant saying, "I‘m sorry you guys feel that way." Ohhhhh I hate that! Read more »
So much to be thankful for this week! I‘ll try to keep it as Bravo-related as possible, which shouldn‘t be too hard. But I would like to mention that Robyn‘s "Body Talk, Pt. 3" EP came out on the 22nd, and the first two season of Damages are on Instant and I‘m officially, completely, Ali-Larter-versus-Beyonce Obsessed. But here are the things on Bravo this week that I can‘t get over.Kelly Ripa and Mark Conseulos on Watch What Happens LiveI swear Andy Cohen has magical powers. He is capable of making me like almost everyone he has on his show (exceptions: the Salahis and Patti LaBelle who was just nuts. Also I like Kim Zolciak better on RHOA, but we‘ll get to that). I never thought much of/about Kelly and Mark before but now I like them! And look at what Kelly‘s wearing! Love it! Read more »
The Real Housewives are taking over television, one cross-over at a time! I was so excited to see Atlanta Housewives on Ghost Hunters last night, even if they weren‘t there for very long and didn‘t see much. Next week, on The Fashion Show Ultimate Collection, the fashion houses will be designing clothes for the Real Housewives of New Jersey and the Real Housewives of Orange County. I‘m all about it! I love when we see the Housewives outside of their natural show habitat (showbitat? Let‘s just let this one go). In the past we‘ve seen the Real Housewives of Orange County (and their kids) on Shear Genius, and Kim Zolciak just made an appearance as a guest judge on Hair Battle Spectacular. Here are some shows I‘d like to see some Real Housewives cross into.  Read more »
Beverly Hills Housewives, I missed you! Well, everyone except Camille. They‘re back with a Beverly Hills bang as Kyle takes Kim to the plastic surgery office. Don‘t worry, it‘s for an electro-facial ("as close as you can get to a face lift without surgery," says Kyle). It‘s awesome, Kim looks exactly like that episode of the Twilight Zone with that crazy mask on. I‘m dying; it‘s so crazy looking. But, spoiler alert, neither of them came out looking like this:It would have made for an interesting hour, though. Read more »
During the dinner party/set-up at Mohamed‘s fabulous mansion (that just sold for $55 million), Kim kept disappearing. Giggy was more than happy to take her seat in her absence, but she was gone for so long, and arrived so late, that everyone wondered what happened to her. She appeared back at the table, accompanied by some weird French guy, but here are some theories on what Kim was doing.1. Getting another electro-facial (Mohamed probably has a room for that). Read more »
The holidays are here! But not for the Real Housewives, it looks like it‘s mostly trouble for them. Here‘s what‘s going on in the lives of the rich (or not-rich-anymore) and fabulous (or depressed):Teresa and Joe Giudice are selling their stuffMaybe not enough people were interested in that seminar? The Giudices are putting their household furniture up for a private sale, but have bid on it themselves to set a price. So if you want their furniture, you can have it for the "best" bid over the Giudice‘s bid of $54,405. So, by overvaluing their stuff, they‘ll get to keep it. Happy endings for all! [Radar]  Read more »
Are you stressed out about finding gifts for the holidays? Or maybe you‘re just looking for a good book to curl up with by the fireplace. These books by Bravo-lebrities will either solve all or none of your problems. Either way, here is your Bravo-lebrity book list and gift guide. Get ready for lots of long titles with colons!It‘s Not Really About the Hair: The Honest Truth About Life, Love, and the Business of Beauty by Tabatha CoffeyThis book has not been released yet, but is available for Pre-Order. It is described as, " Part memoir, part business manual, and part coaching guide on achieving self-acceptance and love," and encourages readers to find their inner "bitch" ("Brave, Intelligent, Tenacious, Creative, and Honest"). Uh ... want it!The perfect gift for: Anyone who works in the beauty business, fans of Tabatha‘s Salon Takeover, or your favorite "bitch." Read more »
This has been such a fun week for Bravo! Also, if anyone is wondering what to get me for Christmas (because only my family reads this?), I made everyone a comprehensive Bravo-lebrity book and gift guide. I‘d take some Andy Cohen Watch What Happens Live shot glasses, as well! Anyway, this week was pretty strange on Bravo, too. Here are my favorite weird things that happened:Kim Richards gives her daughter advice on how to be picky at a restaurant on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It was a really brief moment in the show, but Kim told her daughter she should send stuff back if it doesn‘t meet her standards. Her daughter protested, saying she felt bad for the people who made the food, but Kim said that the restaurant wouldn‘t want her to be unhappy. Really? Because I‘m pretty sure people in restaurants just want you to leave. Go ahead, take your business elsewhere!  Read more »
Kyle and Mauricio are training for a 69-mile bike ride to raise money for cancer (or against it). Kyle is training with Olympic Silver Medalist Mari Holden. No big deal, just an Olympic medalist! Mari informs Kyle that she needs to get an "extreme" bikini wax. Is there something more extreme than a Brazilian? Do I want to know? Kyle‘s daughter is there to witness the waxing and it‘s actually not weird at all. Kyle seems like a cool mom.Meanwhile, Adrienne is training Taylor to kickbox for self-defense. It resonates for Taylor, who volunteers at a crisis center. Over on the ridiculous/delightful side of town, Lisa and Cedric are practicing for their American driving test. Lisa‘s hoping Cedric‘s license will prompt him to move out. Not a chance! And I hope he never moves out, it‘s too much fun.  Read more »
Relationships are tricky business, particularly if you‘re either a rich and famous Hollywood star or a fictional character. In Shipping News each week, I break down for you the three most note-worthy (to me!) relationships -- i.e., ships -- o‘ the week into the Tip-Top Ship Shape (for the best ship of the week), That Ship Has Sailed (for romances that fell apart) and You Sunk My Relation Ship (for the most devastating moment in a romance we‘re shipping for). Got a duo you‘re totally shipping for? Drop me a line in the comments, and you may see them featured here.  Read more »
I‘ve been looking forward to/dreading this episode. From the previews I know that sh*t it going to hit the fan and I will be all kinds of second-hand uncomfortable. Of course we‘ll have to lead into it and the fight will happen at the end of the episode and possibly continue into the next. I‘m onto you, Housewives! Camille is going out to lunch with Taylor, who "seems genuine." She followed that with the classic Camille shrug, though, so who knows what she really thinks. Here we go: Camille is having a dinner at her house for the Housewives (but the dinner party will be stacked with Camille‘s friends/worshipers.) She wants a break from the drama. Camille‘s friend D.D. will be at the dinner, and Alison, the woman who the show Medium was based on. It also sounds like this lady is a belligerent drunk. Keepin‘ it classy in the 90210! Read more »
Let‘s delve into the spiritual realm shall we? On second thought, let‘s deal with some real-world, on-this-earth crazy. I‘m talking about a further examination of one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ most fascinating characters: Allison DuBois.I went online to see if I could find video clips of the dinner party from hell and I found a totally revelatory bonus clip on In this clip, Kyle goes to visit her psychic after the dinner party. Apparently everyone in Beverly Hills has a psychic, some more cracked up than others. It seems like Kyle‘s psychic is legit, though, because she‘s totally spot on about some things. Watch the clip below:  Read more »
I‘m so glad that Bravo is still giving us new episodes while a lot of the other networks are just airing reruns (and Christmas-themed game shows, of course). To me, the biggest things this week were Phaedra and Apollo‘s appearance on Watch What Happens Live and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ "Dinner Party From Hell."What shocked me the most about Phaedra and Apollo was that they didn‘t seem as looney as I expected. Phaedra seemed very self-aware and able to laugh at herself, and Apollo was actually pretty funny. Here is the surprisingly sweet story of how they met:  Read more »
In the aftermath of the worst dinner party ever, the Housewives nurse their physical/emotional hangovers. Remember how Allison Dubois was the worst ("know that")? Yeah, me too, unfortunately. Lisa has a fundraiser coming up and nobody really wants to go and see everyone again. But the fundraiser is for this girl who was set on fire, so you can‘t be like, "I don‘t support this!"Cedric, Lisa‘s permanent house guest, is not really pitching in. The free ride can only last so long, Cedric. Kim has decided not to go to the fundraiser, and it‘s probably for the best. Taylor asks Lisa if she can separate everyone, but maybe if Camille doesn‘t show up ...  Read more »
There‘s a new Housewife in New York, someone going after Lisa Vanderpump, and further proceedings with Camille and Kelsey‘s divorce. The Real Housewives keep on keepin‘ on!Cindy Barshop is the Newest Real Housewife of New YorkYou may have already heard that Completely Bare founder Cindy Barshop is the newest cast member to join the Real Housewives of New York City, in which they‘re basically re-creating Sex And the City 2. What little we know about Barshop is that she‘s friends with Ramona and Completely Bare focuses on waxing/laser hair removal. We‘re also not sure if Bethenny is actually leaving the show for good (Bravo will neither confirm nor deny) but Bravo insists Cindy Barshop is "not a replacement for Bethenny." Hmmm ... what do you think? []  Read more »
It‘s almost the New Year: The exciting time of change and new beginnings, yes. But in order to make that change happen, we also need to make it the time of honest self-assessment and (hopefully) absolution. And so I must come clean: Among these TV-themed bad habits, I have been guilty of at least five. OK, more like seven. Fine, nine. Screw it, I‘ve done ALL OF THEM. Nobody‘s perfect, and me, even less so. But I hope that laying them all out here will put us (talking at you, my fellow mistake-making TV fans out there) on the right track to a better relationship with our shows and screens going forward. It‘s important work, and that‘s why we do it.So here I come, New Year. Here are the TV habits I hope to kick in 2011:  Read more »
Yesterday the news broke that Camille Grammer, who I wish would leave us alone forever, is leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She‘s turning into the next Danielle Staub even faster than we expected! According to TMZ, who reports that Camille is quitting, she is "unhappy with the way she was portrayed on the show." Really, Camille? Really? They made you say those things? They insisted you invite Alison Dubois to that dinner party? The fixed the lighting so you would look like a hollowed-out shell of a woman? Aww, that was mean! I‘m sure we‘ll have sympathy for her any day now, closer to when the stuff hits the fan in her marriage and we watch it all come crumbling down. TMZ also added that now that Camille is a single mom, "circumstances have changed." That I believe.  Read more »
Ken wants Cedric to move out but Lisa, who is SO cute gardening, doesn‘t mind him (even though all he does is sit by the pool in his man-kini drinking wine and use their cars without refilling the gas tank.) I don‘t mind him either! How can they argue about anything when Giggy is wearing a cute little complementary outfit with a strawberry on it?! Camille invites Adrienne and Paul to play doubles with her and not-Kelsey. Then Camille invites Kyle and Mauricio, who she has kind of been awful to. To her credit, I can tell that Camille is really trying. She‘s just dim. In a move that can‘t make anything better, Kyle tells Kim about Camille‘s invite and Kim was like, "Oil and water!" and then she set the table for one as they discussed the white party. Because of course they have an annual white party in Beverly Hills. Read more »
On this week‘s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Camille gave Kyle the book How to Behave and Why. It‘s a children‘s book by Munro Leaf, published in 1946, that focuses on the four pillars of honesty, strength, fairness, and wisdom. Camille was like "ha ha?" about it and Kyle was like, "ha ha you are lucky I don‘t scratch your face off." Many of us wondered if Camille had read the book before she gave it to Kyle, or if perhaps it was a re-gift. Either way, if you want to learn "How to Behave" like a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, here is this list for FREE! Read more »
Hey, Real Housewives fans! Are you all agog about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (or just sick of Camille)? Are you beyond excited for the return of The Real Housewives of New York City? Did you HEAR what Ramona did to The Countess?The woman getting all the buzz in Beverly Hills these days is Camille Grammer. Is she quitting The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? How much money is she getting out of the divorce? Well, for whatever reason, Ellen Degeneres went there. Here is Ellen‘s interview with Camille, in which Camille addresses most of our questions. Read more »
Real Housewives all over the place! Here are some rumors surrounding the RHBH reunion, what Camille did or didn‘t say about Kelsey Grammer, how Teresa wants her daughters to grow up in New Jersey, and who‘s releasing a new book (spoiler alert: it‘s Bethenny.)The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had a reunion taping last week, and according to Andy Cohen‘s tweets, it lasted all day and is sure to be full of drama. Would we expect anything less? Well, E Online claims to have an inside scoop on the goings-on at the reunion and it seems to be anything but boring.  Read more »
Well, "tell all" is a strong phrase. Maybe just "re-hash" or "tell some" is more appropriate. Either way, Camille, Kyle, and Taylor talk about how they wish they could all just get along like, all the time, and some other stuff in the videos below:Taylor talks to Us Magazine about how her favorite moments were when they were all getting along and/or dancing. Really? The part where Russell left you holding the cake in the rain wasn‘t your favorite? Also, she has no idea what it means to "go Oklahoma" on someone‘s ass.  Read more »
Lisa is a little jealous of all the time Kyle and Taylor have been spending together. Kyle and Lisa meet for lunch and some one-on-one time, until Taylor texts Kyle to tell her she‘s coming by. Russell‘s dropping her off. Lo and behold, Lisa‘s getting a little icy! Lisa thinks Taylor stirred Camille up before the initial incident in New York. We‘re getting suspicious! It‘s always trouble to talk about New York.Taylor comes in and starts holding hands with Kyle and frankly, it‘s all strange. "She‘s allowed to give support," Taylor tells Lisa, who says she feels like she‘s at the table with a pair of lesbians. Lisa tries to have a conversation with Taylor, who just can‘t stop laughing. Um, weird. They toast "to moving forward" and "being honest," as Lisa shoots Taylor one last icy glare. NOW it‘s starting to feel like The Real Housewives. STORM‘S A-BREWIN‘! Read more »
This week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim called in for an interview with Radio Disney (er, Radio Disney On Demand.) Well, I was inspired by that, and her role in the original Escape to Witch Mountain. Plus, I needed a break from all of this Camille nonsense, as she stirs the media pot. If the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were Disney characters, here‘s who I imagine they‘d be.Only one of them is a princess, imagine that! Of course, the possibilities are endless so suggest your own in the comments!  Read more »
Here‘s some fun-size, fat-free TV news! Can you handle it?Which Beverly Hills Housewife is "just a crock full of Botox"?Besides ummm . . . all of them. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sat down with Judith Regan on her Sirius XM radio show to come clean (at least partially) about who‘s had what done. I love it when ladies, especially the Real Housewives, come clean about their plastic surgery but their answers were all a little vague. Taylor Armstrong seemed the most honest, saying, "Just start from the top, right? You should‘ve seen what I looked like before--oh my God! I mean, scary! So yeah . . . filler [lips], Botox. And I had my boobs done." On the other side of that coin was Kim, who only admitted to having done Botox "at one point with my sister" and implants that she had taken out.  Read more »
Bravo knows drama, (screw you, TNT!) even when the cameras stop rolling. Here‘s what‘s happening in the Bravo universe lately.NeNe Leakes to Leave Real Housewives of Atlanta?Why not? She‘s going to be an even bigger star and an even more unstoppable force after Celebrity Apprentice! On Sunday‘s Watch What Happens Live when Andy Cohen asked NeNe about next season she responded, "I‘m not really interested in joining the next season. I‘m just not really interested right now."Is this for real? Do you think it is or is it just talk? NENE DON‘T GOOOO!!! [Zap2it]  Read more »
You guys! Bravo has given us a video sneak peek of the reunion and it looks so tasty! Check it out, it definitely confirms some of the rumors buzzing around about Cedric and who is not speaking to whom! Read more »
Everything is getting flipped upside down tonight. We feel sorry for Camille, Kim and Kyle have had it with each other, and it‘s time for Cedric to move out! I love watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but this was maybe the most depressing episode ever.We pick up where we left off last week, with Camille and Kelsey going to the Tony Awards for show. I‘m leaving what I‘ve felt and said about Camille before in the past. I really feel bad for her going through the divorce and an incredibly awkward and public final evening with her husband. The skin crawls! Read more »
It may not be our call to make, because every time I try to trace a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills argument back to someone, I have a new answer. It‘s like one of those mazes where you try to follow the string or the pipe but you get tangled up in a knot even though you kept your finger on it the whole time, or at least you thought you did. Did "New York" even start in New York? Or did it start in the airport? Does it really come down to Kim? Taylor? Or is it actually Kyle and Camille like we thought? Here are some thoughts about where the arguments may have originated, accompanied by pictures of the Beverly Hills Housewives pointing. Read more »
Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion is here! Is it just me or did that week of rehab do Kim good? Or maybe she did a few weeks of "rehab." Lookin‘ good, Kim! Who kept their cool? Who‘s the most passive-aggressive? Who can we believe?Here are the five best moments from the reunion: Lisa Vanderpump!She was funny, composed, and unapologetic and she managed not to offend anyone. I‘m anxious to see what happens on Part 2, as we get into the details of her falling out with Cedric. Also, it was great when she called Andy her "poor friend." Read more »
Part 1 of the Reunion was really exciting, as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are quickly becoming a favorite of the franchise. I know you can‘t wait for the second half, if you‘re anything like me, because they‘ll be confronting some even more serious issues like Camille‘s soft-core porn past, Cedric, and Kim‘s drinking problem.If you want something that may bolster the "drinking problem" and/or "crazy" allegations, check out this video of Kim at the airport. She may or may not be drunk, and who knows what those pills are for, but she definitely knows (thinks?) she‘s a STAR. [TMZ]  Read more »
The first part of the RHOBH reunion was ... a little lackluster, I think. But Part 2 more than made up for it! There were tears, fights, laughter, and painful memories back from beyond the grave. We WENT THERE! I‘m so glad I found out it was airing tonight (a Tuesday? wtf?) Here are the best moments from the Reunion, Part 2. Camille confesses to "pure stupidity" for saying she had a "Jesus complex," then later apologizes for some of the things she said to/about Kyle.  Read more »
Now that Bravo has aired everything everyone has to say about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the cast has even more to say. The Beverly Hills Housewives, with Kim noticeably absent, went on Ellen today to have a laugh and play games. It seems like they‘re getting along? Of course, Cedric has more to say, still. We‘ve got video for anyone who wants to hear Cedric running his mouth some more. First, on the lighter side of things, here‘s Ellen as the seventh Beverly Hills Housewife: Read more »
While I can‘t say I was actively anticipating the "Lost Footage" show from RHOBH, I sure am glad to see it. It‘s just so much fun, and gives me so many more reasons to love the Beverly Hills Housewives! I hope Camille comes back for Season 2, if/when there is a Season 2 (if there is a God!). Okay, enough blaspheming. Here are the best moments from the "Lost Footage" show:Camille the HumanitarianThey finally (after a court order from Camille?) showed Camille and D.D.‘s beach moment when D.D. approached Camille and thanked her for, you know, just being Camille. She tells Camille that she is "the best thing that ever happened in my life." In my life, too. No, I don‘t think I mean that. Not like D.D. did. She was also "really stoned.  Read more »
I can‘t believe The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is over! Well, it‘s not entirely over because next Tuesday Bravo is airing a special "producer‘s cut" of the famed Dinner Party from Hell. More Alison DuBois? We couldn‘t possibly ... WE SO COULD! But that‘s not all that‘s going on with Bravo. Aside from the Feb. 28 premiere of Bethenny Ever After (ohhhh, mixed emotions), Bravo is swapping out The Real Housewives of New York City for The Real Housewives of Miami, moving RHONY to a spring premiere date.Apparently they just finished filming RHONY and wanted to give the stars a break. So much to edit, you know?! So instead, we get The Real Housewives of Miami, which I am excited about for one reason: Read more »
Initially, I didn‘t think I could make it through that dinner party again. It was so awkward and it made me hate Camille, but boil over with rage toward that Alison Dubois character. I didn‘t think my soul could take it. But my DVR dutifully recorded it and once I started watching it, I had a good time.Yes, there are some unseen clips from the dinner party, but what makes this special the most fun are the interviews with the Housewives (and "the morally corrupt Faye Resnick") after the fact. It‘s weird how, after a little time and space, the dinner party was quite enjoyable for everyone to watch and relive. And in light of everything going on with Camille (she‘s finally free, you guys! Kelsey is set to get married again in like, two weeks), watching the dinner party this time around made me hate her much less, if at all. Yeah, I actually felt bad for her.  Read more »
So much is going on with the ever-increasing population of Real Housewives! Things are far from over for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and things are just getting started again for the Real Housewives of New York (with or without Bethenny). Did you catch the sneak peek at The Real Housewives of Miami? We‘ve already got news on one of them!Camille Donatacci Grammer on the Red CarpetBut this time, without Kelsey! Camille will be a red carpet commentator for Showbiz Tonight live from the Oscars. Why? And will anyone watch that? I guess Camille might be a reason to watch. Showbiz says she will be a perfect fit for "TV‘s most provocative entertainment news show." Provocative! [] Read more »
The Real Housewives of Late Night are back for their second season on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the premiere may be one of the most magnificent things I‘ve ever seen. You can tell Jimmy Fallon is a fan of the Real Housewives franchise. This episode is giving us a little New Jersey, a little New York. Anything look familiar?Enjoy Jimmy Fallon‘s homage to The Real Housewives: Read more »
The Real Housewives of Miami is tanking in the ratings. How badly? It‘s doing worse than The Real Housewives of DC. The premiere brought in only 1.21 million viewers, as opposed to DC‘s 1.6. It‘s not just the ratings, either, it seems like across the board viewers and critics agree that this series is just not doing it for them. So what gives? [Reality Tea]Personally, something bothers me about the series but I can‘t really put my finger on it. Is it that I don‘t relate to Miami, having never lived anywhere near Florida? Is it just that the timing is off? That no one feels like watching a TV show about Miami before spring has even hit? Maybe it‘s a revolt against bumping The Real Housewives of New York season 4 back. What is it? Read more »
Some shows are just best when you‘re getting your drink on, and the Real Housewives shows are no exception. I‘m not a sommelier, but I do know my Housewives, and here are my recommendations for drink pairings to go with each series.The Real Housewives of New York City: Pinot Grigio! Read more »
What‘s going on with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Is there an end in sight for Miami? Don‘t worry, there is! No More New Housewives, Andy Cohen PromisesEven though I was really hoping for The Real Housewives of Dallas, Andy Cohen tells OK! Magazine, "I really feel like we‘re done." When asked if there might be any more spin-offs (like a Kim Zolciak version of Bethenny Getting Married?), Andy Cohen said of the Housewives, "I think they‘re all good where they are." It‘s a bit of a relief, isn‘t it? I like the current Housewives (except Miami) and I‘m not ready to let anyone else into my heart.  Read more »
Did you watch the "Queen of Jordan" episode of 30 Rock? It‘s a must for Real Housewives fans, as the episode is filmed and edited as Queen of Jordan, Tracy Jordan‘s wife‘s series on Bravo. The episode was fun, even for those who aren‘t very familiar with the Housewives, but there were lots of hidden treats for those of us who have watched and enjoyed The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, and New York City. The episode had electronic-cigarette-smoking psychics, table flipping, and a strip aerobics studio. Liz Lemon uses the infamous Caroline Manzo simile, "thick as thieves," and Angie Jordan is releasing a single ("My Single is Dropping"). Oh, and that strip aerobics studio belongs to "Randi" former Delaware call girl, who is a lot like Danielle, and the single release party is being planned by D‘Fwan, who is definitely Dwight. Have a look for yourself with this two-minute replay of the episode: Read more »
The Real Housewives are starting to remind me of the Full House theme song, except that instead of there being a heart or a hand to hold onto "everywhere you look," there‘s a lawsuit or a foreclosure. Remember when Danny Tanner crashed DJ‘s "makeout party"? Good times.Before we get to the "legal woes, etc." part of this post, let‘s just have a moment of silence for the amazing wax-like pregnancy photo of Kim Zolciak and Kroy Bierman. Read more »
