An Oscar-Nominated Movie May Be Based On a 'Real Housewife' -- Seriously! (VIDEO)

TV 19

kandi and toddGreetings from Brooklyn! I’m back in the States with the week in Housewives gossip -- why is The Real Housewives of Atlanta so much better than The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season? Plus, does art imitate life? Can you call reality TV art? Or life? These are the questions I ask myself while watching movies nominated for awards as well as the Housewives.

Someone mentioned in the comments on last week’s show that they heard a rumor Bravo or the producers rented Porsha Stewart’s house for her, and it didn’t hit me until I saw a house we used for VH1’s Couples Therapy appear in the film The Bling Ring. There’s a HUGE difference between a lived-in house and a set for filming. Do you think either Porsha or Kenya Moore actually live in their houses? Also, do you really think Kenya wants to have a baby?

I loved it that all the men of Atlanta were on Watch What Happens Live last night -- they all had a chance to have their say about this season, and unanimously they all agreed they’re the victims of bad editing. BUT, what do they have in common that no other husbands in other cities have? I tell you what in today’s exclusive video below.

Who dominated last week’s episode of Beverly Hills? Would you believe it was Kim Richards for me? While she’s adorable at her loopy best, that’s not necessarily a good thing. I discuss WHY Lisa Vanderpump probably blew off the graduation party and my favorite moment of the episode.

Finally, in New York news, I draw a comparison between a Big Apple housewife and the character in an Oscar-nominated performance this year. While Jennifer Lawrence publicly admitted she used The Real Housewives of New Jersey to prep for her role in American Hustle ... it’s not her. Whom do you think? Watch this week’s episode below and tell me whether you agree!

Do you think Lisa was wrong to snub Kim's party?

I love your column and video and look forward to reading and viewing your video. It would be so cool if you also covered Shah's and Dance Moms.

I'm watching Blood, Sweat, and Tears right after RHOA. It is such a great show and is getting exceptional ratings for the network!

Blue Jasmine is Streetcar Named Desire mixed with the Mrs. Bernie Madoff story. I don't see a Sonya tie-in at all, BUT Jonah Hill in Wolf of Wall Street is JUST like Richie Wakile, from the overbleached teeth to the popped collars to ridiculously oversized glasses to the crude but friendly nature.

Kandi and Todd are not married yet. Kandi has been very firm and up front about that on her twitter account. She is the most upfront honest and current person on twitter and instagram - you know everything that's happening with her. I think they may still be negotiating with Bravo over a wedding show and I know she had no interest in having her wedding be too close in time to NeNe's.

As always...great insight into what is going on behind the scenes of Atlanta HW....all makes sense to me now...I wondered how the heck and why Porsha bought such a huuuuge house and where did the money come from. Now it all makes sense, it's not reality! ;) I am planning now to watch Blue Jasmine...after your comparison to Sonya. :) one thing that bothers me is the fact that Lisa and hubby did RSVP that they couldn't come to the graduation. I really think Kim is being a whiner about them not coming, after all she knew they wouldn't be coming it wasn't a surprise but did she even read the rsvps? My new guilty pleasure reality show is The Shahs of Sunset...lots of drama and questions going on there!

I'm watching Blood Sweat and Heels.  It's been in my DVR for a minute and i'm just catching up.  So far I love it! 


I'm wonder what you think about Porsha's rent problems.  Apparently the homeowners association is suing her for not paying dues.  It's something like $20K.  Wouldn't Bravo cover that if they're also covering the rent?


 


Your insights about RHoA are interesting.  I agree that in Altanta the money they get paid goes a lot farther.  It makes sense to me that the wives in that city would be happier.  Plus it's easier to be a big fish in that small pond.  Not like NY or LA where every second person is famous for something (or trying to be).

Could you please do something about the volume? It seems to have an echo making your podcasts very hard to hear. I try to listen every week, but at least half of the time I give up.

Just found your column and love it!

Sonja Morgan's ex may not have personally defrauded people, but JP Morgan Chase certainly has. It's almost as if they Blue Jasmine after Sonja and made a few tweaks to make it fiction. I try not to be conspiratorial, but I wonder if Sonja's in on it. Perhaps she finally found a way to pay off that $7 million judgment. Word of advice: Don't tell people you read all of their comments; that's when people start getting mean.

almost as if the modelled Blue Jasmine after Sonja*... Of course they won't let me edit... Wine and typing don't mix.
