My favorite part of any Real Housewives season is the reunion show. After reliving all the drama and watching all the “private” confessionals, the ladies are ready to battle and call each other out for all the trash-talking done behind the backs. When I heard that Adrienne Maloof skipped out on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 3 reunion taping, I was livid.
Maloof knew fully well that she would be the target and have to defend her actions, respond to all the lies and talk about her divorce. Speaking of the latter, she claimed a contract signed with her ex-husband, Paul Nassif, prevented her from showing up. Funny enough, Nassif taped a segment for the reunion and talked about the divorce. Another piece of BS from Miss Adrienne.
“She is also not allowed to talk about her divorce; there is a gag order in place, and she was concerned she is going to be pushed into a corner and repeatedly asked about it, and that will compromise the divorce agreement. It is too dangerous and the repercussions too severe for her to put herself in that situation.” – Maloof source
Her playing hooky just proved how much of a coward she is. Teresa Giudice (RHONJ), Danielle Staub (RHONJ), NeNe Lekes (RHOA), Michaele Salahi (RHODC) and Jill Zarin (RHONJ) all attended their respective reunions despite knowing they were going to be attacked. After Maloof’s stunt, I have more respect for all those ladies. If you dish it, be prepared to take it. Words I live by.
The reunion shows bring in huge ratings for Bravo. Naturally, Andy Cohen was pissed that she breached her contract. Like fans, he’s been chomping at the bits to question her all season long. I was wondering how the Bravo exec was going to address it. Thankfully, the network gave a sneak peek and boy, does Cohen take her to task. I love him even more for being a bit snippy. After accommodating her all season long, she pulls a stunt like this. Check out his words below, along with why she thinks his actions are unprofessional.
After watching the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, I feel content with the predictions I made prior to the first telecast. Most of the celebrities performed as I thought they would with a couple notable exceptions. Both Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd impressed and entertained with their debut performances. That said, I still think they’re going to be eliminated within the first five weeks.
The stars had to dance either a cha cha cha, a foxtrot or a contemporary on the first night. With no results show until Tuesday, March 26, all of them get a second chance to impress viewers next Monday. Check out all the performances below and find out which ones were my three favorites and worst pick.
After going with an All-Stars edition, Dancing With The Stars is going back to basics for Season 16. While I enjoyed seeing returning favorites, I’m looking forward to tonight’s season premiere. While the star wattage isn’t as high as in previous seasons, I already have a few people I’m rooting for. Lisa Vanderpump, I’m talking about you.
Getting a first look at the “celebrities” with their professional partners is always exciting to watch. While I do enjoy witnessing the trainwrecks, I’m more stoked to see who comes bursting out of the gates gunning for the mirrorball trophy. Check out my predictions on how Season 16′s stars will fare.
Without a doubt, Andy Dick will be one of the first to go. I just can’t see the 47-year-old comedian having any sort of rhythm. Former ABC sitcom star DL Hughley might have some dancing prowess, but don’t think he has the fan base to support him. Speaking of fans, everyone knows that country music has diehard ones. Normally I would put Wynonna Judd higher, but with Kellie Pickler also in the competition, I think Judd will suffer and be ousted early.
Also in this bunch is my favorite Lisa Vanderpump. While popular with Housewives addicts (myself included), she probably isn’t well known outside the Bravo universe. Hopefully her signature wit and sass will win over new fans quickly. Last in this list is boxer Victor Ortiz. I’m sure when it comes to demographics, there isn’t much crossover between DWTS and boxing watchers. His chances aren’t helped by being saddled with new professional, Lindsay Arnold either. I thoroughly believe, viewers also vote for their favorite pros.
My favorite part of every Dancing With The Stars season is the first episode. After weeks of buildup and buzz, we finally get to see who has the stuff to take it all the way and who’s there simply for fodder and ratings. This season that title goes to Andy Dick. I just can’t see the Newsradio star doing well. Poor Sharna Burgess. After spending several seasons in the Dance Troupe, she finally gets promoted to the big time, but saddled with Dick. LOL. With that said, the duo looks like they having lots of fun in their official promo photo.
ABC just released all the competing stars with their professional partners. This crop of wannabe hoofers doesn’t have the star wattage as previous ones, but I’m really looking forward to this season. We have new pro blood in the form of STYCYD alum Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko and the aforementioned Burgess. Based on first impressions Karina Smirnoff, Derek Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy have the best chemistry with their stars. Check out all the photos below.
As most of you know, I love me some Lisa Vanderpump. The woman is witty, beautiful and always remains classy despite the drama that surrounds her on Bravo’s hit reality show. She’s definitely one of my favorites from The Real Housewives franchise. I’m so glad that she’s achieving success beyond RHOBH. From her own successful spin-off series Vanderpump Rules to landing a spot on the upcoming Dancing With The Stars season, this woman is everywhere.
Side note: props to her for breaking the DWTS-Housewives cherry. She’s the first Housewife to appear on the show, despite heavy campaigning from other women. With her new dancing gig, the paps are following her even more. Imagine my surprise when TMZ caught her walking out of a Los Angeles restaurant arm in arm with someone I would’ve never expected. Check out the odd pairing below.
Dancing With The Stars is back with a new cast of celebrities ready to throw on their dancing shoes and compete for the mirrorball trophy, alongside their talented professional partners. The new cast were announced by hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet on GMA this morning, along with the cast members for this season.
As with every season, there is quite the mix of celebrities that include country music stars, comedians, actors, Olympians and pro athletes, reality stars, and as usual, one token Disney star.
The new season begins on Monday, March 18 with a two-hour season premiere from 8-10pm ET, with the results show taking place the following week on Tuesday, March 26 at 9/10pm ET. Check out the cast of DWTS Season 16 below and vote for who you think will win this season.
Have you seen the promos for Bravo’s new reality series, Vanderpump Rules? It’s like The Hills but with a den mother. All the action takes place at West Hollywood’s SUR lounge which is short for “Sexy, Unique, Restaurant”. In charge of the horny incestuous bunch is none other than Real Housewives of Beverly Hills goddess, Lisa Vanderpump. By far and away the most popular woman on the 90210 edition. It’s no wonder Andy Cohen is taking a gamble at a spinoff featuring his pink-loving Giggly-nurturing prized cow.
If you’ve been watching Season 3 of RHOBH, you’ll recognize a few of the faces. The network has slowly introduced some of them in hopes you’ll tune in to the premiere of Vanderpump Rules on January 7 @ 10pm.
So far we’ve meet Scheana Marie, the man-stealing tramp who slept with Brandi Glanville’s ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. Also introduced was Stassi Schroeder who received a scolding from Lisa for mouthing off to one of the restaurant’s biggest customers. We also saw a glimpse of Stassi’s boyfriend Jax Taylor who also works at SUR. They’re not the only couple working there. Young attractive 20-somethings all working in the same place. I smell major drama. Check out the entire cast and their bios below.
I don’t know what the world Donald Trump was thinking when he decided to hold the Miss Universe pageant one week before Christmas. The whole holiday theme and set just felt a bit odd. For me, the pageant belongs in the spring or summer. Trump’s people seriously need to knock some sense into him. I swear he’s getting a bit more senile in his old age. In his defense, he probably thought airing it at this time might benefit the show’s ratings. Last year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show scored boffo ratings. They’re practically the same show but with more clothing ;)
The Christmas trees and snowflakes were the least of his worries, the beauty pageant was probably the worst produced Miss Universe I can recall. From the audio glitches in the beginning and the awful pre-recorded segments, it was one big snooze fest. Thankfully, I taped it and watched the entire 2 hour pageant in just 30 minutes.
Once again Andy Cohen (my silver fox crush) and Giuliana Rancic hosted the event, with Jeannie Mai serving as fashion correspondent. A few of the notable celebrity judges included Nigel Barker (glad to see he’s been busy since ANTM), Lisa Vanderpump (my fave RHOBH), Scott Disick, Brad Goreski, Diego Boneta and Kerri Walsh Jennings to name a few. On deck to perform were Train and Nigerian-born Aussie singer Timomatic.
Overall, this year’s Top 5 were a decent bunch. That said, I was a little bummed, my early favorite, Miss South Africa, only made the Top 10. Speaking of Africa, this was the first time since 2002 that no black candidates made the semifinals. They didn’t even win one of the special awards. Best National Costume went to Miss China and Miss Congeniality and Miss Photogenic went to Miss Guatemala and Miss Kosovo respectively. Check out this year’s Top 5 below.
