So since I have abruptly abandoned writing recaps (except those I do for BuddyTV.com), I am starting a new weekly series of my thoughts on the goings-on in the reality TV world this week.
I mean, it’s the least I can do to fulfill my need to discuss “my shows” without tethering myself to the TV and laptop when those shows air.
Let’s just dive right in here…
I took a break from RHOC and RHONJ for the past two weeks and finally caught up on the episodes I missed.
A New Hairdo(n’t) for Heather
The most pressing matter at hand is that of Heather’s bangs at the RHOC Reunion. NO. Just no.
She looks like a bad version of Cleopatra. I don’t like her dress either, to be honest. But it’s funny– I shared my thoughts on her hairstyle on my Facebook page and the majority of people disagreed with me!
I think they are too harsh and most likely are covering up a pimple or a case of Botox gone bad on her forehead.
I liked how Heather did apologize for a host of things this season, most notably overreacting to Shannon’s “scary angry yelling” about the restaurant chair.
Still, she stopped short of admitting that she was condescending and pretentious this season, which she totally was. If all the viewers see it, well…I think you should listen up.
Terry coming out to talk at the Reunion didn’t really help Heather’s case, in my opinion. He just added to the demise of Dubrow popularity that has slowly been happening over the course of this season.
When Andy told him that Eddie’s comments about Heather on the bull were the same as David’s, Terry wouldn’t even acknowledge that.
I really think the Dubrows are just too full of themselves. I bet they think that Bravo is going to give them a show of their own.
Tamra’s Final Season?
Rumor has it that Bravo has given Tamra the axe. Do we dare to believe it’s true?!
For the record, I loved Tamra when she first came on the show. She was a breath of fresh air with her sass. But the past two seasons (and the dreadfully boring wedding spinoff) she has been incredibly irritating.
It seems like everything she did this season was simply to make trouble. It’s only good drama when the actions/words are coming from an authentic place. Tamra, on the other hand, has frequently commented that “they don’t fire the big mouth” or something to that effect. To me that means that she is just stirring the pot to keep herself in all the storylines.
So fake! As fake as her tears every time she tries to “be emotional” on camera. (Can she even cry anymore with all the Botox?)
But I hesitate to believe that Bravo would so easily get rid of someone who was such a troublemaker. Isn’t it good to have a gal that everyone hates?
Can we bring back Alexis??
Ho Ho Ho?
So. Friend of the Housewives Victoria Gotti made the outrageous claim that Rino slept with Teresa and Nicole’s mom Santa. Umm. I don’t even know what to say here.
If this is true, then EW. My question is, why would Victoria Gotti make this up? To get airtime on the show? I guess. Kind of a bizarre thing to make up. It would be way more believable if she had said that Rino slept with Nicole. Right?
The twins and Rino are vehemently denying this rumor. (Obviously.)
Do we believe it??
Radar Online came out with this story yesterday: “RHONJ Star Caught in Raunchy Sex Scene That Lawyers Kept Off the Air.”
The headline makes it seem like the Housewife was taped in a raunchy sex ACT, but really all she was doing was demonstrating how to give a blow job on a beer bottle. While drunk on a girls’ trip. Seems harmless enough to me.
But then that same “lady” went on to describe the sex toys she uses with her husband in graphic detail.
Who do you think it is? I’m going to rule out Teresa, because she wouldn’t get that drunk on camera. I’ll rule out Melissa for the same reason…they have been on the show too long to do something dumb like that. Dina is out because she’s getting divorced and she also wouldn’t do that.
That leaves the twins and Amber. I’m going with Amber…
Oh and the article mentions a clue in recent episodes. Anyone have an idea of what that could be?
