It’s Part One of the Vanderpump Rules Reunion…here’s what we learned!

Vanderpump Rules - Season 4

Where did this season go?

It seems like we just met Lala and thought she was going to be a sweet addition to the show. We were so naive!

I can’t believe this amazing show doesn’t even get its own special locale for the Reunion. They have to sit on high, uncomfortable bar stools at SUR. Really, Bravo?

Here are ten things we learned from the Vanderpump Rules Reunion… Read More »

Yolanda hosts the word’s most awkward restaurant “dinner party,” a.k.a. reservation for 16.

After a couple of uncomfortable get-togethers, the ladies seem to be separating into different squads.

On Yolanda’s Squad: Erika, Eileen, and Andrea Bocelli. On Lisa Vanderpump’s Squad: Kyle, Lisa Rinna, Kathryn, Ken, and Giggy.

So which squad would you pick? Personally, I like the access to SUR, Villa Blanca, and Pump that comes along with being on LVP’s Squad. So I choose her.

Find out how these squads came to be. Here are the Top 10 highlights from last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Read More »

Do you like it quick and dirty?

Here are “The Ten.” Ten things you need to know from last night’s Vanderpump Rules episode, “Pucker and Pout.”

10. Katie is planning a launch party for her fashion blog, Pucker and Pout. She seems to be posting more often these days but when I looked at it back in the fall, her latest post had been for Earth Day. In April. She’s also not the best writer. Does this sentence make sense to anyone? “Don’t forget the crucial elements that go into a special night that you should mind hours or days before like getting fresh polish on your nails.” I do like the fresh, clean look of the site, though.

Kyle’s relationship with Faye causes waves with new girl Kathryn Edwards.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 6

I have to be honest– I’m not loving this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills thus far.

Lisa Rinna (one of my faves) is coming off terribly, due to her obsession with Kim Richards’ addiction and Yolanda’s “illness,” as she would put it.

I do really like Erika, but I’m not yet a fan of Kathryn. And there’s too much Faye. Why?

Last night’s episode featured a meeting between Rinna and Yolanda, plus a swanky costume party. Here are The Ten…ten things you need to know in case you missed it! Read More »

Will Ben finally see through Olivia’s phony sweetness to her bad breath, bad attitude, and self-professed cankles?

The Bachelor Recap

I’ve been saying this for the past several seasons but the budget for The Bachelor has clearly gone downhill.

After traveling to Las Vegas for a quickie last week, the gang heads to the exotic land of Mexico City. Cue the dumb geography comments…

Ben is “excited,” because “progress is happening with multiple people.”

“I’m becoming more and more confident that my wife could be in that group,” says Ben. “I feel like Mexico City’s gonna be a really good place to fall in love.” Read More »

I was so consumed by the promos suggesting that Clint is gay and in love with J.J. that I totally forgot that we didn’t even end with a Rose Ceremony last week. I was just SO stunned. I mean, who in their right mind would be in love with J.J.?!? He sucks.

And even after watching the episode I’m still not sure what the hell is going on. (So it’s like any other episode of this show.)

I’m so excited that RHOA season 7 has begun!

Last season was pretty entertaining, by Real Housewives‘ standards. Lots of fighting, drama, and fun new vocabulary like “you got read” and “Eskimo sisters.”

This season, Porsha is out (yay!) and Claudia Jordan has joined the cast. Here are the Top 5 Moments from last night’s RHOA season 7 premiere episode… Read More »

Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 3 Recap


Here are ten things we learned from last night’s final installment of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion…

10. Aviva thought Carole was older than 50. And when Aviva said, “At least I’m not 50,” she meant it as a compliment.

9. Heather informs Aviva that she doesn’t have a storyline. “All we ever talk about is your f***ing leg!”

8. Ramona believes herself and Heather to be the leaders of the group. Everyone respects them. (According to Ramona.)

Andy Cohen, Kristen Taekman, Ramona Singer

7. Sonja is a Christian and as such, is able to forgive people. 

6. Heather’s son Jax had the less-invasive ear surgery. Kristen’s daughter Kingsley is walking, but still gets therapy (which Josh attends).

5. Ramona tries valiantly to get Aviva to figure out why she has such a dark side to her usually nice personality.

4. Sonja thinks that LuAnn and Ramona were projecting their own problems on her all season.

Carole Radziwill, LuAnn de Lesseps

3. Kristen called Ramona and Sonja “her crazy drunk aunts” as a dig. Not a compliment.

2. Aviva took her leg off at the party because she wanted the “three shrews coming at her to shut up.” She claims that she didn’t plan to throw her leg.

1. Aviva can’t drink bubbles. Sorry, no champs for you!

Eh, so that’s it. I felt like Part 2 had all the fireworks. Also, wasn’t it rare that that show ended with everyone sort of getting along? 

Tell me your thoughts! Who do you want to see back next season? I’d like to see the newly single Ramona, definitely the Countess, Carole, Kristen, Heather, and Sonja. Oh wait. Did I just say EVERYONE BUT AVIVA???

Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part Two Recap


I have to admit, I’ve been looking forward to the rest of this reunion after last week’s preview. I know some people think Andy Cohen is crossing the line by asking Ramona about the state of her marriage (a.k.a. Mario’s affair), but…

  1. She signed up to be filmed for a reality show. This includes her husband and her marriage. Fair game for questions.
  2. Ramona has dished out so much garbage to others over the years, she’s had this turn in the hot seat coming.

Let’s get to Part Two of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion, shall we? Read More »

Bachelor in Paradise: Top 5 Moments (Episode 1)

BIP Episode 1

Since I’m writing full recaps of Bachelor in Paradise for BuddyTV each week, I’m going to post a Top 5 Moments list here.

Then you can head over to BuddyTV and check out my full recap

  1. Ben Scott shows up on the island. He walks into the group of singles, says hello, and…crickets. #EverybodyHatesBen
  2. Lacy is unsure whether to take Robert or Marcus on her date. She is hesitating. “I’m like 80/40,” she says. Hmmm, who gets the extra 20%?
  3. “Does this make me want to pursue Graham more?” asks Daniella, after seeing AshLee’s fatal attraction to him. “Not really. I don’t want to get murdered in my sleep.”
  4. Graham’s slow realization that he paired himself with the crazy chick (AshLee) on Night #1. Sorry, bro. Better luck on Bachelor Pad 4?
  5. Elise confessing that she would have already told Dylan she loves him, but, I mean, it’s only been two days. She should probably wait til the third day. At least.

A Hairy Situation: Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap


While I was at the taping of Watch What Happens Live last night, my TiVo f***ed up.

 It started recording Real Housewives of New Jersey 35 minutes into the episode. Before the big fight, but still..I’m sure there was juicy drama that I missed. (After checking out the episode photos on, I see that it was basically Melissa damaging her car, costume shopping for Bobby’s party, and Dina cleaning out her closet.)

I’m not really sure how that happened. Did the TiVo realize its mistake halfway through and quickly start recording? Was TiVo out partying and got back later than anticipated…about 35 minutes after RHONJ started?

No one knows for sure, so let’s just blame my husband instead.  Read More »


Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part One Recap


As usual, Andy kicks things off on a light note, asking the ladies about their taglines. For the zillionth time, Kristen’s is a joke because she’s a model. She doesn’t actually think she is dumb. 

And yes, Carole does indeed have a great ass, as showcased by her fab gold dress. Coupled with her blonde hair, she looks STUNNING. Best dressed, hands down.

Also loving Sonja’s hot pink/black lace dress and Kristen’s loose waves. (Sidenote: Andy comments on Kristen’s “new boobs.” I thought she got them before the season filmed, but I guess not?!) Read More »

Who Does Andi Pick??? {The Bachelorette Recap: Finale}


Do you believe that our journey with Andi is coming to a close? Seems like only yesterday we were meeting guys like Emil, who described his name as “anal with an M.”


There. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to Andi and her two remaining “gentlemen,” Josh and Nick.
