I think we have to start calling it Housewives' Land. I don't remember ever having THREE franchises airing at once, but it's a BIG commitment for fans. Between The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the Beverly Hills reunion part 1, and New York City, not to mention NeNe Leakes' turn on Dancing With the Stars, there wasn't time to watch anything else!! I do, however, have some Orange County and New Jersey gossip to add.
In Atlanta, it's clear to me that Kenya Moore is trying her best to write everyone's storylines for them. This works very well for her in some cases, but NOT all. And could you believe Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter Thomas playing Oprah yet again? In today's exclusive video below, I detail exactly how that set-up between Apollo Nida and Kenya might have played out, and how Phaedra Parks knew to show up at exactly the right time.
On Beverly Hills, before we even got to the gossip, we had to address a certain online petition. Brandi Glanville has inspired more hate than Jill Zarin ever did, and that's saying something. I discuss my prediction on the next Beverly Hills ladies to be cut from the show, as well as some behind-the-scenes nuts and bolts of how reunion shows are put together. Is Yolanda Foster being overly earnest? Does everyone really hate Lisa Vanderpump?
And back home in New York, we've got #BookGate -- so crazy that it has its own hashtag on Twitter. Having a bit of direct experience with what it takes to write a book (I wrote one, too), I break it all down for you. Who won this fight? Aviva Drescher? Carole Radziwill? You may or may not agree with my evaluation, so let me know below.
Also this week, some BLATANT Housewives' plagiarism by multiple women -- did you catch them all? Will Teresa Giudice experience the Phaedra Parks treatment from Bravo? Will we like the new Orange County cast members?? Watch today's episode and fire back in the comments!
Which Real Housewife do you think Bravo should fire next?
