“If a couple has been together all that time - and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones - I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”—Betty White!
That housewife guy; stalking the wives, one house at a time!
So my trip to Giuseppe’s Home-style Pizzeria was not how I expected it. I do not even know where to begin!
Click here to view the video of us trying to park in the neighborhood.
I live about an hour away from where the pizza place is located. Where is it located you may ask? An exit after Newark, NJ. The armpit of New Jersey. Not only were there Hookers on the streets at 12 o’clock in the afternoon but it seemed like there was still a sense of segregation. On every block, (some were not even paved by the way) there was a small, cute little house church. One of them was named ‘With Jesus We Pray; Church for colored people’. Hmm…
But the pizza was actually very good! There were photos of good ol’ Teresa all over! Even on the freakin menu! Adorable! Some items on the menu were named after their children which was really cute! For example one of the paninis was called ‘The Gabriella’. It was really precious!
The pizza place itself was over the top. Don’t get me wrong, it was very nice INSIDE, BUT the location was frighting. Oh, and what store is located next to it? Weezy’s Swag Shop. I know.
By ‘stalking’ you really get to see the reality of ‘reality’. The way they showed the pizzeria on the show was NOT how it looked in person. Teresa most definitely can cut a bitch if she is brave enough to come around on these streets!
By the way, Kim G. would definitely NOT approve of this location! But Danielle might; there has got to be a strip club somewhere around the corner!
Overall, I had an amazing experience with my Aunt Sue-Ellen. Thank you for taking me Aunt Sue! Love ya!
& I honestly love Teressa even more now. She is the definition of Ghetto-Fab!
It's a wedding! It's a circus! Oh, it's just the ridonkulous "Southern Baby Shower" of Phaedra Parks.
Quick—someone, Kim—intervene! Before we know it, Nene could pull a Heidi Montag. You know, the pressures of fame and constantly being perfect can have a toll on the ladies of Bravo, and Nene was feeling the stress this week on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Nene’s been going through some problems at (her rented) home. Nene’s marriage to pastel-sweater-loving Gregg is on the rocks and her son Bryce is a useless delinquent. Nene tries to set a good example for Bryce by being such a productive member of society thorough her educational television program, but he just still doesn’t get it. Then, on top of that, former BFF Duh-white has replaced Nene with Phaedra, who is so damn classy I can’t even take it. What’s a Nene to do? Get a breast reduction, liposuction and nose job, that’s what. Sure, Nene’s nose was big, but so was her head, body, breasts and persona. She’s a big lady! So while this new nose is nothing unusual for someone as internationally famous as Nene, it just looks wrong on her body. Plus, she said she only had her nostrils taken in. Lie! Why is a nostril procedure any better than fessing up to a nose job? I’ll never understand the levels of plastic surgery acceptance in their world. Botox, excellent. Nostril relocation, fantastic. Boob job, keep ‘em coming. But a nose job? Heavens no!
Respected local artiste Dr. Whiteman put Nene out, and girlfriend was OUT. Her incoherent ramblings were some of them best one-liners of the night. Calling Kim from the hospital bed: “Kim, I’m right around the block.” Calling Sheree: “I got a surprise for you. I get to wear one of your bras.” In fact, the whole episode was very slap-stick comedy, in the vein of greats Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges. Maybe Atlanta housewives are the comic relief to the drama of the other cities. But, noticeably absent at the big surgery was Nene’s husband Gregg. Bad move, G. She wasn’t going to let Gregg ruin her new nose, though. The day of her surgery, still completely anesthesia-drunk, she was ready to party: “I’m ready to drink. The bitch is back!”
Speaking of doctors, Sheree’s in looove. In love with a Love Doctor. Except he has no medical degree and knows nothing about dating or else why would he be single still? Tiy-E Muhammad, who you may recognize from epic TV flop “The Real Gilligan’s Island,” is Sheree’s new love interest, and I can see why she can’t keep her hands off this hair-plugged Lothario. During his seminar on “why black woman can’t find a successful black man,” he sums it up with ketchup: Women, he instructs, do not open the ketchup bottle on dates. Let the man do it, so he feels like a man. Men feel masculine when they’re opening condiment packaging, and to open ketchup yourself, women, is the same as castrating their penis off their body in the middle of the Houlihan’s that you took your cheap date to. Of course, Sheree doesn’t go on dates where they serve ketchup, so this must be a case of romantic opposites attract. I hope they have a happy, lasting relationship of threes or fours of episodes together.
Maybe Fake-dra and Apollo should teach seminars on healthy relationships since she is the arbiter of Southern class and he is, um… and also because they are so in love. Yet, Phaedra brought Dwight, not her fiance, to the horse race. And now that you mention it, Apollo wasn’t even at Phaedra’s baby shower. It was Dwight who did the ceremonious virgin-sacrifice dance with Phaedra. What was the baby shower of the “black Tammy Faye Bakker,” as Cynthia called Phaedra, like? Well, it wasn’t like a baby shower. It was more how I imagine a Baptist church fashion show to be like if it was MC-ed by a drag queen. The host of the 150 person event I understand was born a woman but had the look and voice of a top-notch drag queen. Phaedra has rhinestone makeup in between each fake eyelash, and it is truly scary. Her make-up all season so far has made her look trashier and worse than how she looks natural. That means you need a new make-up artist, but she’ll only learn that when her episodes air now, when it’s too late.
Each woman was to wear a hat, gloves and be escorted by a man to their assigned table. I expected Phaedra to be sitting in a giant egg with people chanting ritualistic prayers around her. Cynthia, Kim, Kandi and former housewife Lisa Wu Hartwell (who is so stunning and pulls off bright red lipstick like it ain’t nothing) were all in attendance at the affair, and as Cynthia put it: “Someone stab me in the neck and put me out of my misery!” Or as Kandi put it: “Bourghetto. Bourgee [bourgeois] and ghetto at the same time.” Or as Kim put it: “Damn, I wish I was tardy for this party.” (Okay, she didn’t say that, but she thought it). Kim’s face when the ballerina dancers sprinkling feathers on the floor swished by her table—yes, that did happen—was that of, I can’t believe this bitch out trashed me. But it happened Kim, believe it.
A letter to my Nanny, Congrats on your retirement!
I’m not sure that you know just how much you mean to me and how much I love you.
We are your little angels, your 7 grandchildren, or is it 8? 9? I can’t keep track. Anyway, I always felt a deep connection with you, despite our very small age difference. You could always make me laugh, each time we’d talk on the phone; something you’d say always made me smile. You are one of the strongest people I know, Nanny. You have dealt with much emotional and physical pain over the years, yet you never wanted to be a bother to anyone.
Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of times spent with you; taking me to see the Radio City Christmas Show, going to work with you and of course all the food. The peas and PAHST, the escarole soup and above all else, your gravy. You were always making something. Nan, you were always trying to give me something, money, food, jewelry, toys, advice, but you’ve given me much more than you know. You’ve given me someone who I know I can trust, someone who always loved me no matter what, & someone who was always proud of me.
But today is about you. I am proud of you, Nanny, for being the person you are. For being strong, for being the head of our family for so long, and for working for endless years.
Bravo announced today that it will expand to five nights of original programming beginning Nov. 7. The Real Housewives of Atlanta will anchor Bravo’s new Sunday night, with original episodes airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Watch What Happens: Live will follow at 11 p.m.
“With Bravo’s rapid ratings growth and continued momentum in original programming and new initiatives, we’re expanding to Sunday nights where fans can continue to connect and engage with our brand across all platforms,” said Bravo Media President Frances Berwick in a statement. “The buzz-worthy sensation surrounding The Real Housewives of Atlanta, with its ravenous fanbase, is the ideal launch for this new night of original programming.”
Immediately after tune into “Watch What Happens: Live” at 11PM ET/PT from the Bravo clubhouse with host Andy Cohen. “Watch What Happens: Live” is Bravo’s first ever late night interactive talk show featuring guests from the world of entertainment and pop culture. The show airs live on Sunday and Thursday nights.
The new episode of Atlanta that will air on Nov. 7 will feature NeNe introducing her son Bryson to Peter, Cynthia’s boyfriend, in hopes that he’ll find inspiration to start his own career path.
A spokesperson for the network said an announcement will be made in the days to come as to what will replace the Atlanta franchise of the “Real Housewives” on Monday night.
What are your thoughts on the new air times? What do you want to see from Bravo in references to new programing?
Star can exclusively reveal that The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak is expecting a baby with her beau, Atlanta Falcons pro footballer Kroy Biermann! But in a shocking twist, Kim’s former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young says Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her!
^ Kroy, Kim’s boyfriend.
Earlier this month, Tracy flew to Atlanta to reunite with Kim, four months after their bitter breakup. “She said she still loved me and wanted to tell me something important face to face,” Tracy tells Star exclusively.
Kim dropped the bombshell baby news and Tracy says, “When I asked her what she was going to do, she said, ‘I want you to stay and raise the baby with me, because Kroy doesn’t want to be involved.’” Little did Tracy know that only two days after Kim’s stunning announcement, her world would come crashing down as Kroy came back into the picture.
Teresa Giudice has even more problems coming her way! The severely in debt reality star attempts to portray a very happy home and marriage with her husband Joe Giudice, but Life & Style is reporting that Joe has a life filed with strippers, alcohol, and a possible romance with a co-worker!
Even though Teresa claims to have “a great husband” these allegations are very shocking! The magazine reports that Joe was a “regular” at a strip club called Showoff’s in West Orange, N.J., and a former dancer says, “There was a lot of hanky-panky that went on in the club’s basement … Joe was always up for a lap dance.”
Life & Style also says that Joe developed a very close relationship with a “young female staffer” who wasn’t “qualified” for the job. Sources go on to reveal that Joe called his upstairs office the “boom boom room,” and when he tried to give away his couch no one would take it.
Many of you asked me If the ONLY things I watch are shows on Bravo. The answer is no; I LOVE Jerseylisious! It is like The Real Housewives of the Jersey Shore Hair Salon. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I also enjoy The Bad Girls Club, ahhh. I honestly do not remember watching a non-reality T.V. show recently. I loved Gilmore Girls, 7th Heaven & Friends. I also started getting into Glee, on occasion. Hahaha
Real (dramatic) Housewife, Teresa Giudice has had one busy year. She’s filed for bankruptcy, released a book, flipped a table - oh wait, that was last year - anyway, this lady might just be here to stay.
While constant controversy seems to be brewing around the reality star, Bravo may just want to cash in. How would they go about that? Why a spin off, naturally! “If they can give Bethenny her own show you can bet that they will give Teresa one. You can’t come up with a better script than Teresa’s life. She’s a mother and wife [of Joe] going through financial troubles and having to start all over again. Everyone has been hit hard by this economy and watching Teresa and her family struggle through problems will make for great TV” an insider tells PopEater.
Of course people will watch because other people’s messed up lives make us feel better about life in general. Seeing other people act crazy makes us feel sane, and who doesn’t want a side of sanity with their evening TV?
Since saying goodbye to the Real Housewives of Orange County mid-way through last season, Jeana Keough still keeps in touch with her fellow castmates — even the house husbands — and goes on double dates!
Although she may not see her former co-stars that often, believe it or not, Jeana has sparked a special friendship with Tamra Barney’s estranged husband Simon Barney.
"I see Simon. We’ve had dinner like once a week for the last two weeks," Jeana told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Last month Simon was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence after allegedly throwing a dog leash at Tamra.
They have been going through a bitter divorce battle since Simon filed paperwork last year.
"This is something new. We’d run into each other right when he got out of jail. Everybody thought I bailed him out and I didn’t," Jeana revealed. "We just remembered how much we enjoy each other and we’re both good at giving each other advice. So we double date!"
But don’t worry O.C. fans, it’s not what you think.
"[He’s] with this new girl, he’s dating. He’s very happy, very happy," she said. "She’s a banker, in her 30s, she’s intelligent and cute and doesn’t wear any makeup and dresses low key. She’s a business girl."
Jeana also went through a very public break-up with her husband, former pro baseball pitcher Matt Keough, on the reality show last year — and her kinship with Simon began with her daughter Kara.
"He’s always been there for Kara. My daughter went through some really tough times and Simon was there for her giving her any advice she needed because she didn’t have a father to turn to so she turned to Simon a lot of times and they had a really quirky relationship," she said. "He just helped her a lot. So I’ve never forgotten that.
"When she went through a rough spell he would take her calls. She would be angry at me for something and he would straighten her out. It never showed on TV but he’s a very level headed, great guy.
Jeana said she didn’t believe Tamra’s accusations.
"No, not [for] a second. I’ve only seen her whack him. I’ve never ever seen him do anything but try to protect her and say ‘you’ve had enough to drink’ or ‘your dress is a little short.’ But no. He’s a great guy."
The website is reporting that Bravo was tapping season 6 of RHOC when housewives past and present went cuckoo on each other. It appears that Tamra Barney threw a drink in Jeana Keough’s face which then prompted Jeana to try and throw Tamra in the pool. I am praying to the reality TV gods that this was all caught on film.
The ladies then did what every grown adult would do, they lit up their Twitter pages like nobody’s business, and everyone took a side.
There maybe more to this than just Jeana having dinner with Simon and his new girlfriend. Jeana was interviewed by reality tea.com and had this to say about Tamra.
”You know that girl, you’ve seen her on TV. You know her mouth. If that guy [Simon] would have ever hit her or touched her, if he looked crossed-eyed at her she was screaming at him at the top of her lungs. I’ve had her turn on me like a rattlesnake for nothing. So there is no way she would take abuse from anyone. She stands up for herself even when she’s not correct…”
Yikes! This is not something you want a friend to say as you go into a custody battle with your ex-husband. According to Realitywives.net Tamra posted this comment on her Facebook page
JEANA KEOUGH THINKS SHE KNOWS SO MUCH ABOUT MY LIFE? POOR POOR SICK WOMAN….LEAVE ME ALONE FOR THE LAST TIME! THEN SHE TRIES TO THROW ME IN A POOL CUZ I SERVED HER WITH A C&D LETTER FROM MY ATTORNEY….
STAY TUNED I HAVE THE TEXT AND EMAILS THAT JEANA SENT ME AFTER I CONFRONTED HER ABOUT HER INTERVIEW!”
This is all playing out as Bravo wraps up season 6 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and Bravo could not have asked for better publicity!
I appreciate your ‘It Gets Better Video’. But, I am disappointed with you. That moral arc of history of which you often speak, is indeed now bending toward justice, but unfortunately when it comes to full and equal rights for gay Americans, it is doing so without your help.
America has no right to take a moral high ground regarding human rights when even Catholic-centric countries are ahead of the U.S. in providing equal rights to their gay and lesbian citizens.
We do not need another speech, Mr. President. We need action.
I don’t care if you’re an atheist, a christian, a buddhist, agnostic, a wiccan, or any of those other religions. I don’t care if you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, or anything like that. I don’t care if you’re black, white, latino, or any other race. I don’t care. As long as you’re nice and just an all around amazing person, I will be your friend.
If you weren't wearing hooker shoes, you'd be able to go a little faster. Get in the car!
Kim’s First Concert
The hot mess we’ve come to know as psuedo-pop star Kim Zolciak is packing for her first real concert, which will basically consist of playing one song to an audience consisting of a few thousand drunken’ gay men. In other words, Kim’s bound to be a hit no matter how terrible her number is, and we’re predicting extra terrible. She’s off to Palm Springs for a few days, so naturally she has about 12 suitcases, mostly filled with shoes and wigs. After a little motherly chat forbidding her oldest from having her boyfriend over, who makes that disturbing tiger growling noise at her again, Sweetie and Kim head to the airport. These two are hilarious together, by the way. They should totes get their own show… nevermind.
After picking out some outrageous outfit and relentless throwing herself at an obvi-gay dude, Kim arrives for her rehearsal to meet her hot backup dancers. Admittedly, these guys have some serious abbage. She also tests out sitting on the martini glass that will serve as her entrance vehicle, which is not filled with gallons of alcohol much to her disappointment, we’re sure. What’s more, she now has to concentrate on getting down from the vessel, not to mention walking back and forth on stage as she’s singing. Very complicated. Luckily, Kim has the grace of a baby rhino.
NeNe Gets a New Toy
Tonight we met the newest addition to NeNe’s clan, a poor little terrier, which she has christened Playa (no, not the Spanish word for “beach,” play-ah, as in player — “a real name,” according to NeNe). Following last week’s Bryce drama, NeNe takes her non-criminal son Brentt for a stroll in the park and explains that his older brother broke the law and he’s very sorry, sparing him the details. Probably, NeNe is just trying to save Brentt from realizing Bryce is a complete moron. Sorry, dude, but showing up to a correctional facility with a pocketful of weed? You’re not gonna live that one down anytime soon. On a side note, NeNe is training her dog by putting him in diapers. WTF?
Sheree’s Maternal Side
Over at Sheree’s estate, Dwight arrives with his publicist to have a sit-down and finally hash out the whole rumor-mill business of Dwight dropping $30,000 on the She by Shereé fashion show. To be fair, the stunt queen dressed to the nines for the occasion, decking himself out in one of his fanciest butler suits. Also, was that an extra coat of wax on his face? He shouldn’t have (seriously). Anyway, Sheree confronts him, Dwight insists he spent the 30 grand, with the basic breakdown being $1200 for the sloppy seamstress and $28,800 toward a Kinko’s bill. Yeah, we’re gonna side with Sheree on this one. In the end, the pair decide to drop the drama and move on, with Dwight chalking it up to a learning experience. He’s been getting quite the education around town lately, hasn’t he?
Later, Sheree, armed with a giant bottle of pink champagne, goes to visit her daughter Tierra who has recently returned to Atlanta. Shereé mentions how shocked people are to find out she has a 24-year-old child — actually, we didn’t blink an eye, but whatevs — so she explains she had her when she was very young with a teenage boyfriend (no mention of whether or not she was in her teens at the time). Since she likes her daughter’s man Damon, Sheree’s not too upset that the young lovers are living in sin. What was a sin, however, were those sunglasses she was wearing during her girl talk with Tierra — not cute, Boo. Anyway, mama drops a ton of cliché advice on her daughter, even though from where we’re sitting, looks like Tierra’s life is in much better shape than her mother’s.
Kandi Makes More Bad Decisions
Guess who’s waiting for Kim to arrive in Palm Springs? Kandi decided to fly out to both help and support her protégé (or maybe to watch her crash and burn, it’s hard to say). Needless to say, Kim is flabbergasted when Kim and Sweetie show up in a bright yellow Lamborghini, followed by a limo full of luggage. She’s even less amused when Kim brings up the idea for Kandi to come out on stage midway through the performance to sing background vocals. You know what’s crazier than that suggestion? If Kandi were to agree to it… which she does. Good friend? Yes. Good career move? Not so much.
Phaedra Shows Her True Colors… Particularly on the Color White
Over at the house of Phaedra, our preggers housewife is not only cooking up breakfast barefoot in the kitchen, she’s wearing sexy red lingerie too. Wow, Apollo is one lucky jailbird. Phaedra doesn’t understand why everybody’s gossiping about her hubby’s prison record, pointing out that he’s no different from Martha Stewart and “people need to just get over it.” Uh, does Phaedra realize what show she’s on? Oh, also, Phaedra plans on whoopin’ her kid if he looks at her the wrong way, but Apollo isn’t on board with that type of discipline, urging Phaedra to blame his white-household upbringing for making him such a softy. These two are gonna make fantastic parents. No, really.
It turns out that Phaedra and Apollo dated while she was still in college before his prison days, and quickly got engaged after his release. Guess that’s one way to make a long-term relationship work. Still, like all newlyweds, they do have a pair of ‘ship mentors, a couple they were matched with from church. Anyone else think this is code for “swingers”? The foursome sits down to dinner, but Apollo is utterly confused by the entree placed in front of him. He literally looks at it, then turns to his wife, as if to say “Huh?” Having grown up in a white household, you see, Apollo is more comfortable with canned foods and packed meats. The two then share what their “love language” is. For Apollo, it’s quality time. Phaedra opts for receiving gifts. Hmm, maybe Apollo isn’t as lucky as we thought. Clearly, their marriage is already doomed, but they decide to see what happens after they bring a baby into it. Great plan.
Cynthia Bores Us to Death
Cynthia and her sister slash assistant Malorie go over the supermodel’s extremely busy and important schedule, which consists of one photo shoot and a double date. After that tough task, they pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate their accomplishments. Then, the commitment-phobe talks about her million past engagements and the fact that Peter has given her an ultimatum… you know, for a change. Malorie, by the way, looks about a decade older than Cynthia, even though she’s younger, but surely dealing with her sister’s endless prattle on a full-time basis has added 5-10 years to the poor woman.
Almost Tardy for the White Party
Finally, it’s the big day of Kim’s sure-to-be catastrophic concert, and the wigged-out star is about as calm as Richard Simmons on crack. After squeezing into her ridiculous tutu, Kim is looking a little more Elvira, Mistress of the Dark than black swan, at least in the cleavage department. Not only are her monster boobs about 90% exposed, they also seem on the verge of falling out altogether and possibly taking out the first 50 rows of half-naked gay men. To avoid this national tragedy, her seamster Charlie successfully secures her knockers with a halter-strap, surely made of some sort of government-issued super-crazy-strong material. Not so fast, Charlie, we’re not done with you yet. As soon as Kim steps outside, the wind blows up her dress exposing her boy-cut panties. Really? Is that a big deal? Have you seen your chest? Regardless, Charlie comes to the rescue yet again, desperately pinning down her tulle layers, as her name is being announced to the crowd. Kim is perched atop her martini glass just in the nick of time ready to be rolled out by her scantily-clad muscle men. Much to our surprise (and dismay), she actually pulls off a half-decent, disaster-free performance. What’s worse, we now have that godforsaken tune running through our heads. Again. Sigh.
Teresa might be walking the walk while walking off the show!
Are Teresa Giudice’s days on ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ numbered? According to TMZ.com, the reality star is thisclose to losing her role on the hit Bravo show because the network is getting fed up with her holding up her contract negotiations while she holds out for more money!
TMZ is reporting that the Giudice wants double her salary from last year and she thinks that all the other housewives are making more than she is! She’s threatening to leave the show if Bravo doesn’t pay up. And apparently, Bravo is prepared for that and is looking at possible replacements.
So can someone who is in such dire financial straits afford the possibility of being kicked off the show over a money dispute? I mean, shouldn’t she compromise with the network and get back to work? Because after all, some money is better than no money, especially when you’ve declared bankruptcy!
Caroline and Jacqueline are the only two who have signed and handed in their Season 3 contracts.
The show will be soooo boring without T.
If all this is true, should Bravo cough up the cash or give Teresa her walking papers?
According to TMZ, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson filed for a divorce on Monday from her long suffering husband Donn. Did Vicki file the divorce due to Donn’s failure to ‘fill up’ Vicki’s ‘love tank’?
So much for the renewing of the vows ceremony during season five on Bravo’s Vicki’s ‘surprise’ romantic getaway to Turk and Caicos.
