Whitney Rose is clapping back at Lisa Barlow for her recent comments regarding Whitney and Heather Gay’s “obsession with fame,” and she also questions Jen Shah’s on-camera persona and reveals who she’d rather work with between the two.

Following the wild, three-part Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion, it’s evident that Whitney and Lisa are not on the best of terms. Though viewers watched as the two butted heads after Lisa accused Whitney of coming after her tequila business, which came to a head at the reunion, Whitney says that incident was simply the “nail in the coffin” for her. In fact, she says they had issues well before filming on season one even began.

“Before I even met Lisa, she had a problem with me. We started out on the wrong foot from the beginning, prior to even meeting her, because she was talking mad sh*t,” Whitney alleges on the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast. “People were screenshotting things she was saying about me [and] she was trying to control who could be friends with me, like, ‘go unfollow her.’ She was trying to control it because she did not want me there. And she’ll deny that, but Lisa does not think I’m good enough to be in her presence.”

As for Lisa’s claims that Whitney and Heather play it up for the cameras, and only joined the show for fame, the soft-spoken beauty contends that the opposite is true, stating that Lisa is the one cast member who has changed the most as a result of the show.

“[Lisa] has gotten nastier,” Whitney declares. “Like, it’s so funny that she goes around saying that everyone else is [on the show] to be famous, but she’s the only one talking about it. Like, it went to her head and she’s actually progressively gotten worse towards me — more of her negative sides that I witnessed, have gotten worse, like the manipulation, the lies, the curation, [and] the fakeness.”

Now that a second season has been confirmed, and the ladies are reportedly filming again, there’s a significant chance that fans will see a much different Whitney the second time around. The new reality star claims that Lisa tried to control the other ladies the first season, as well as acting like a puppet master in regard to the show, but she’s finished backing down to the “Sundance Queen.”

“I wish that I would have not given up on Lisa,” the 34-year-old explains. “Like, I wish that I would have proved my point and taken it home, because I kind of backed off about how I feel about her. I allowed her to kind of walk all over me and I stopped challenging it. I wish I would have proved that she’s contrived, manipulative, a liar, curated, and she tries to control everything behind the scenes.”

The topic of conversation then turned to Jen, who has also been accused of playing it up for the cameras by fans on social media. Though both Heather and Lisa have separately defended Jen’s authenticity, and she stated that the dramatic star’s behavior is the same both on and off-camera, Whitney begs to differ.

“I 100 percent see two different people,” she alleges. “To me, it’s almost like she’s watched every city [of] Housewives and pulled the most extreme personalities from each city and put them all together. It’s like she’s trying to be this trough of like, the biggest, loudest housewife. Because when we’re not filming, and I’ve been around her, she’s very different. She’s just calm, and chill, and nice.”

“I know a lot of her Shah squad and they always are like, ‘she’s just so different,’” she continues. “’She’s so kind [in real life].’ Everyone who knows her from her previous life, meaning before the show — no one recognizes her.”

It’s recently been reported that all six ladies have been asked back for season two, but if one woman had to be fired, and Whitney had a say in it, Lisa would get the boot.

“[Lisa] loves to keep everything off-camera,” she claims. “And so I think to be a good housewife, and to have a good show, you have to be willing to say what you think and feel on camera and not try to control the situation off-camera. And that was one of the most frustrating things about working with Lisa.”

The first season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City concluded on February 24 with the three-part reunion, but according to Bravo, season two is “coming soon.”

RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga Reacts To Joseph Wakile’s “Farm Animal” Diss And Discusses Gia Giudice’s Advice To Mom Teresa, Plus Thoughts On Jackie’s Analogy

Published

3 hours ago

Melissa Gorga addresses the “farm animals” comment made by Kathy Wakile‘s son, Joseph Wakile, and dishes on the “great advice” her niece, Gia Giudice, gave Teresa Giudice

Joseph slammed both Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, last week by referring to them as “farm animals” after an outlet reported on The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple’s noticeable absence from Victoria Wakile‘s wedding.

“Lmao we cut those farm animals out of our life years ago that’s why they weren’t in attendance,” Joseph replied to an Instagram post by Page Six on February 16.

During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, a fan wrote in to ask Melissa about the shocking comment, and the star clapped back with a very epic, but classy, response.

“To be honest, I hope we’re goats because goats are so cute,” she said with a smile. “Like, I hope he thinks I’m a little baby goat if he picks an animal. You know what, they’re a little sour about not being on the show any longer [and] it’s unfortunate, to be honest. I wish them all well, I love the Wakile children and I’m so happy for Victoria. She looked like a beautiful bride, so I don’t know. I think there’s a little sourness there that they’re not on the show anymore.”

Host Andy Cohen chimed in by admitting he was “surprised” that Joseph made such a comment. Melissa agreed, but she then went on to explain that she initially thought the comment was meant for Teresa rather than her.

“Very shocking because I’ve always had a great relationship with him too,” she admitted. “There was a part of me that was like, ‘Nah, the question got misconstrued. They definitely meant Joe and Teresa,’ the two cousins, which could have been, because I can’t picture him saying that, to be honest. But I know there’s hard feelings between the whole family and I get it and it is what it is.”

Andy also brought up the advice Gia gave Teresa on the February 24 episode, following Teresa and Jackie Goldschneider‘s big blowup on the season 11 premiere, where Teresa accused Jackie’s husband of cheating and Jackie used an analogy about Gia doing drugs.

“She said something about me, she’s upset because you said something about her marriage,” the sophomore college student told Teresa over the phone. “And not for nothing, if you went about it in a sh*tty way that upset her, then you should apologize.”

Gia added, “I’m sure you weren’t happy when cheating rumors were going on about you and dad. If you upset her, say sorry.”

Melissa was asked about the advice Gia provided, and the Envy Boutique owner claims that sometimes Gia is more of an adult than Teresa.

“I actually feel like Gia sometimes takes the place of the adult a lot of the times, and Teresa always goes to her for advice and it was actually great advice,” Melissa explained. “It was great advice and she seemed unbothered by it.”

As for the analogy Jackie used, Melissa admits that her friend went a little too far.

“Listen, I have to be honest; it was the worst analogy possible, let’s be real. Even if Gia’s 20 years old, you do not want to hear her name tied in with drugs at all,” she stated. “I would freak out, to be honest with you, I would see red if someone said that about Antonia. But on the other side, I understand Jackie was so stressed out and was trying to make a point, but it was like throwing gasoline on fire.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesday nights on Bravo at 9/8c.

RHONY Housewife is Mentioned in Donald Trump Jr’s Deposition Amid Investigation Into Trump Administration’s Inauguration Funds

A Real Housewives of New York City cast member has been named in an investigation into the Trump administration.

According to court documents, a RHONY cast member was mentioned by Donald Trump Jr. earlier this month as he was being deposed in the 2017 presidential inauguration funds probe. Don Jr.’s deposition comes after an investigation by the Washington, D.C., attorney general’s office was launched to determine whether former President Trump‘s inaugural committee misspent donated funds.

On February 24, attorney Robert J. DeNault, who is part of the Trump Administration Accountability Project, took to Twitter to ask his followers if they had any indication of which RHONY housewife attended the inauguration.

“My question: which [Real Housewife of New York City] attended the inauguration in the block of hotel rooms at issue in Trump Jr.’s newly-revealed deposition?” he wrote.

My question: which Real Housewife of New York attended the inauguration in the block of hotel rooms at issue in Trump Jr.’s newly-revealed deposition? https://t.co/SuxbBodkUy pic.twitter.com/nvaSdr2g95

— Robert J. DeNault (@robertjdenault) February 24, 2021

A large part of the investigation involves a certain block of rooms at the Madison Hotel that was reserved by the inaugural committee. According to a report from The Hill, the committee is being accused of using a portion of the $107 million in donated funds to house friends of the Trumps during the historic event.

According to Don Jr., those “friends” who stayed at the hotel include an old buddy of his from college, a “Trump family driver,” and a “New York socialite” who happens to appear on the “Real Housewives of New York.”

Nevertheless, it doesn’t appear that he has named any names as of yet, but Ramona Singer has been linked to the Trumps on several occasions. If fans recall, she was reportedly spotted at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month after production on the show was shut down due to a cast member testing positive for COVID-19.

Not only that, but she was also called out by former cast member Dorinda Medley in July 2020 after she allegedly attended a party with Don Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, who tested positive for COVID following the event.

“Anyone that attended Joe Farrell’s packed Hamptons party last week should get tested ASAP including [Ramona Singer],” Dorinda tweeted, along with a news article from the NY Times that confirmed that Kimberly tested positive on Friday, July 3, 2020.

It’s unclear if Ramona actually attended the inauguration, but former cast member Jill Zarin definitely attended the event and shared a photo of her formal invitation on Instagram at the time.

After being ridiculed for her plans to attend the event, Jill clapped back at fans according to Bustle.

“If you want to unfollow me… bye bye! I’m sick of bullies,” she wrote in 2017. “I don’t agree with some things [Trump says] but running away won’t change it. Be there.. show up… use the system to communicate. But don’t you dare make me feel guilty for going to see OUR country at work!”

RHONJ Star Jennifer Aydin Throws Shade at RHOBH Cast and Confirms Her Mom is No Longer Speaking to Her, Plus She Offers Update on Parents’ Marriage

Published

Jennifer Aydin isn’t a fan of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In a series of new interviews, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member threw some shade at the repetitive storylines of the Los Angeles-based franchise and offered an update on the strained relationship between her parents.

“There’s a lot of conflict this season between all of us and it’s not the whole season. We’re not going to have a Beverly Hills thing where we’re going to talk about it until the end of time,” Jennifer told Hollywood Life last week while describing the content of season 11. “I feel like we all find a way to make it work, which is very [interesting] to see.”

While Jennifer believes RHONJ offers a larger variety of storylines than RHOBH, she did hit it off with Brandi Glanville on Twitter last year after Brandi applauded her as a “fearless leader.”

“I can’t even with you [Jennifer Aydin] I really like you a lot. You can be an a**hole don’t get me wrong, but ultimately you are a fearless leader for your family!!!! Be nice to Jackie she has a great heart,” Brandi tweeted in February 2020.

“Thank you! Agreed! She def has a good heart! And I can def be an a**hole! But I can also be a lot of fun!” Jennifer replied. “I invite you for a [tequila] anytime you’re in town!”

In other Jennifer Aydin news, the reality star appeared on the February 23 episode of RealiTea with Derek Z, where she explained that her parents’ marriage became strained after her brother moved out of their home and back to his native Turkey after his jewelry store was forced to shut down amid the pandemic.

“It left my mom and dad together all the time, no buffer and no business for my father to go to every day. So they were just driving each other crazy,” Jennifer recalled.

Because they continued to bicker with one another, Jennifer felt their home wasn’t “a healthy environment for either of them” and suggested her dad move in with her, much to her mother’s dismay.

“My mom just didn’t understand that although I respect where she’s coming from as him being her husband, he’s also my dad. So if I see them bickering left and right and ultimately, the house is her house, it’s easier for me to remove him from the situation than remove her and that caused a lot of chaos,” she explained.

As for where they stand today, Jennifer revealed nothing has changed.

“My dad is still currently living with me [and] my mother is still very angry about it and she is actually not speaking to me right now, and she is not speaking to him either,” she shared.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 11 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Gage Edward Shares Surprising Update on Relationship With Ex Jeff Lewis Following Flipping Out Stars’ Custody Battle

Published

Gage Edward is speaking out in rare form as he shares a surprising update with his ex Jeff Lewis following their custody battle.

First, Jeff spoke out on Monday’s episode of Jeff Lewis Live as the Flipping Out alum revealed that he and Gage had dinner on Friday night. Gage then confirmed the two of them have “started to heal” and noted that he is “optimistic” about his and Jeff’s future co-parenting relationship for their four-year-old daughter, Monroe Christine.

“There were fifteen minutes of the past, fifteen minutes of ‘I regret,’ ‘I’m sorry.’ . . . It was mostly focused on the present,” Jeff disclosed, via PEOPLE. “I know I’ve changed. I know he’s changed. Whatever this is, it’s a good thing.”

According to Jeff, he’s seen a positive change in both himself and his ex and believes they are headed to a better place in their relationship because of it.

“We’re co-parents, we’re becoming friends, we’re healing, we’re working through the past. I’m hoping for no more anger, no more resentment, no more striking out against each other,” he continued.

As fans of the former Bravolebrity may have seen, Jeff and Gage embarked on a messy custody battle over Monroe after their split in January 2019 and had been unable to agree on a permanent arrangement for her after an informal shared custody arrangement fell apart.

Amid their disputes, Gage demanded equal time with Monroe and requested her name be changed from Monroe Christine Lewis to Monroe Christine Edward Lewis.

Months later, Gage claims he and Jeff have started the process of healing as they remain focused on their common goal of raising their daughter in happy homes.

“I think Jeff and I have started to heal from what has happened in our past,” Gage told PEOPLE on February 23. “Our most important focus is raising our daughter in a loving environment and we are learning how to co-parent as effectively as we both can for her sake.”

“I am optimistic,” he added.

RHONJ Recap: Gia Tells Teresa to Apologize to Jackie as Teresa Threatens Jackie Who Skips Trip After Cheating Rumor; Plus Melissa and Jennifer Make Up

Published

8 hours ago

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

We are dealing with the aftermath of Teresa and Jackie’s blow-up last week on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jackie took it too far last week to make a point with Teresa by using an analogy with Gia. That analogy went over like a lead-filled balloon. How will these ladies co-exist after this drama? Let’s find out, shall we?

We begin this episode with Jackie telling Margaret what she said about Gia. Margaret thinks that Jackie didn’t know her audience, and you don’t use analogies with this group. She thinks she made a two-for-one miscalculation of who she is dealing with. Jackie states that she will never be in Teresa’s presence again. I am sure that sentiment is the same with Teresa and this was definitely a producer-driven scene. The streets were not who told Teresa this fable but a producer in her ear.

Teresa calls Melissa, who is celebrating Antonia’s birthday, and shares what happened with Jackie. She obviously is clueless that it is her niece’s birthday. Teresa defends sharing the story about Evan because Jackie is a strong woman and can handle the truth. She tells Melissa that Jackie accused Gia of using cocaine. Melissa knows Teresa way too well and automatically thinks she took it out of context. Teresa admits that she blacked out and will demolish her “girlfriend.”

Jennifer goes to visit Josephine with her daughter, Olivia. I love how Josephine will only share the broken cookies with Jennifer. Maybe being broken is some sort of metaphor for their relationship?

Josephine won’t call her grandson John since he is named after her husband. She thinks he is turning everyone against her. Josephine tells Jennifer that she didn’t see how he treated her behind closed doors. They had an arranged marriage that wasn’t very loving. Jennifer defends her dad and wants both of her parents to maintain their distance for now.

Dolores visits her mom, Valerie, and brings over some food. Valerie misses her 15 grandchildren and it is really endearing to hear how close they all are to their grandma. Dolores tells her mom how David is emotionally unavailable. Duh-lores (sorry, I couldn’t resist) thinks she is in a non-traditional relationship just like her parents. She thinks it worked for her parents and doesn’t think he is a throw-away guy. Dolores can’t throw him away since he is never around to toss out.

Dolores calls Margaret and discusses the sh*tshow. She thinks Jackie threw gas on the fire. There would never have been a fire if Teresa had not allowed production to use her as a weapon to create drama.

Melissa calls Jackie to try to explain to her that the delivery wasn’t the best. She thinks Teresa cannot comprehend an analogy. What was the so-educated one thinking would happen when you try to reason with a dum-dum?

Dolores and Frank are talking about the non-relationship with David. Frank thinks she is bitter over not getting a commitment. He is going to reach out to David for some guy time. Dolores is more concerned over the blood bath that will play out if they all show up in Lake George. She needs to focus on the drama there since her bullsh*t storyline is so stale.

Margaret tells Joe B. that Jackie is canceling because of the Teresa drama. Wow, he helps her pack? He might want to get his tools out and get to work on that house instead! Margaret thinks she is going to get an apology for Jackie from Teresa? Does she know her?

Jennifer arrives and Melissa is none too thrilled. We get a montage of these two attention whores who are more alike than they think. Jennifer thinks that Melissa relates better to her own image in a mirror. Agreed, but the vain apple doesn’t fall far from the Aydin tree either!

The ladies, minus Jackie and plus Lexi, head to Lake George. Teresa arrives and she acts like she didn’t know Jackie wasn’t coming. She is a terrible actress. Teresa keeps reiterating how happy she is that Jackie isn’t there. She claims where she comes from girls want to know if their guy is messing around. We then get a much-needed montage of Teresa WANTING to know that Joe was playing around town.

Teresa shares her version of what transpired between her and Jackie. She isn’t apologetic about what she said to start the drama. Teresa thinks Evan is suav-ey or some mispronunciation like that and looks like the type that cheats. She wishes that Jackie showed up so she could have rode her all weekend. Well, that would have been the closest she would ever get to Evan. Teresa can’t understand a relationship where you don’t give blowj*bs. She is used to licking them upside down, and that visual made me throw up in my mouth.

What is this fluff scene with Frank and David going to a shooting range? What can possibly go wrong with guns, ex-husbands, and current boyfriends?!? David must have learned something in sniper school. He is a pretty good shooter. These two have such a weird bromance. I see more chemistry between these two than Dolores and David. Frank shares how David invited him to stay at his house as long as he doesn’t bring Dolores since he had a downstairs bathroom when he was recuperating from an injury.

Frank decides to get involved by questioning David about his relationship with Dolores. David, obviously, is putting on the breaks about having a relationship. Frank tries to tell him he is a sh*tty boyfriend and comes across as a jerk-off.  Takes one to know one, Frank! That was such a meaningless talk! Production, please shelve this ridiculous storyline!

The ladies arrive at the house and Melissa finds the best room — with a mirror. The view is beautiful from the deck. Margaret wishes she had brought some gummies on this trip. Cocktails and gummies make for a great party! I am so jealous of them being on vacation. Sigh, woe is me.

Teresa has to keep mentioning how Jackie isn’t there. She defends what she did since Jackie threw shade at her in the past with the quacking like a duck crap. Teresa is the queen of deflection. Margaret is so on point when she says Teresa thinks she is a douche if she apologizes but fails to understand she is coming across as one by being unrepentant.

Dolores thinks that Jackie is lucky that she escaped before there was bloodshed. She is confident if Teresa hadn’t bolted when she did her Paterson would have come out.

Back at the Goldschneider residence, Jackie is at home with her kids and cutting their hair. She is trying to navigate her home life since Evan is really angry over what happened. Jackie is feeling guilt over exposing Evan to this toxic housewife environment.

Jackie has to explain to her kids why she decided to stay home. She resents Teresa because she gets to go on vacation with HER friends. Jackie is hopeful her friends will defend her in Lake George. You can always hope, Jackie!

Melissa tries to get Margaret and Lexi to understand the dynamic with Teresa. She doesn’t take responsibility for her actions and sees red when her kids are mentioned. Teresa isn’t making nice with Jackie anytime soon. Hell will freeze over first or the Bravo checks will stop and THAT will get her attention.

Margaret keeps having nip slips. Please put those puppies away, and while you are at it, stay indoors. The heat may melt your face even more than it already is! The ladies all do some shots with Jennifer right in the middle. Production is making a point of illustrating how Ms. Aydin’s drinking is going to become a problem this season.

The ladies are heading out to dinner. Teresa is on a manhunt and looking to get laid. Jackie sends the ladies a text to have a good time. Teresa shares that Gia told her to apologize for what she said. Gia is the one who can get her mom to realize she screwed up. Thank God that Teresa has a kid who can be the voice of reason. What, Joe Guidice is selling sex toys and he sent her a sample? Yuck, I don’t think I would purchase anything from Juicy Joe.

Dolores tries to get us to believe that she has this amazing lover in David. She thinks he knows his way around a vagina. David should! He is an OB/GYN for God’s sake! Maybe she should get knocked up so David can demonstrate his many talents?

Margaret has to mention that Jennifer and Melissa are playing nice. Jennifer admits calling her self-absorbed was wrong. She wants to start with a clean slate.

Margaret thinks that Teresa cannot process how her actions created the mess they are in. Rational thoughts can’t permeate that thick blockhead clogged up with cobwebs, don’t you know? The dinner vibe is good for now, but as long as the alcohol is flowing, anything can happen, right?

Next week, we are still in Lake George. Teresa is causing trouble by telling on Melissa and saying that she is having a flirtation with a restaurant owner. Hasn’t that woman learned anything? I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, and stay safe!

SHOULD JACKIE HAVE COME ON THE TRIP TO CONFRONT TERESA AGAIN? TELL US IN THE COMMENTS!

RHOSLC Reunion Part 3 Recap: Jen Has a Breakdown Over Race Topic, Whitney Shares Sad Update on Dad, and Meredith Doesn’t Understand Jen and Lisa’s Friendship

Published

9 hours ago

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

Hiya, Blurbers! This here is the final recap of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season one! Before we jump into part three of the reunion, I would love to thank you all for reading. Full disclosure: This was my first paid writing gig, and I didn’t know how my recaps would be received, but your kind words of support and hilariously engaging comments have made my week every week for three months, so THANK YOU!!

Now, before we get to the recap, I’d like to address the Heather Gay vs. Lisa Barlow grudge match we’ve been watching the last two episodes. I made it pretty clear last week that I was NOT digging Heather’s eye rolls and jabs at Lisa, but several commenters made a really good point that after an entire season of Lisa treating Heather like utter garbage, Lisa had it coming

I agree with this assessment for the most part, but I also wish Heather would have taken the high road in dealing with Lisa’s snobbery. We saw her be the kind diplomat of the group all season long, so it shocked me to see her pull a 180 and be so sour toward someone who barely warrants her attention. Fingers crossed we see Heather return to her Cool Rider roots next time around!

Speaking of Lisa, while her snark and lack of self-awareness admittedly entertain me, I think she brought the very least to season one, even more so than Mary Cosby (who hid out in her closet most of the time). We know that Lisa likes Diet Coke, wants to be the next Warren Buffett, and LAAVES moving around chairs at Sundance, so why she thought those qualities would make her the HBIC is beyond me, but her plan hilariously backfired. 

Still, this is a solid squad of Housewives, and I’m very much looking forward to season two! And if we MUST endure another season of Mary, I need to recalibrate and actually look for things I like about her, such as her bug eyes and nervous tics. She’s an odd duck, a liar, and is confusing in every way possible, so maybe… that’s… something to celebrate? I don’t know, friends. I just don’t know. Anyways! Let’s FINALLY get to the recap, shall we? 

We are officially in the husband portion of the reunion, and while Sharrieff, Justin, and John (who fell into the same vat of self-tanner that Lisa did) are present, Seth and Robert Sr. are hovering on television screens behind their wives. After a short clip show of some of the husband highlights, Lisa is asked about throwing John’s Rolex out the car window. “It was so funny. I picked hem up at the airport, and he forgot it was my barthday, and then he took his Rolex off, so I threw it out the wendow! Haha, it’s so funny being rich. I LAAVE IT.” 

Sharrieff is then asked if he values football and his job more than his family, and he explains, “No, I don’t. When Dad was in his worst condition, he was only responsive to me, and that created a pain with my wife because she thought if I would have been there sooner, Dad would have probably gotten better. I was at the wake though!” Woof. Jen said it was a very hard time, but she recognizes that Sharrieff is there for her, so now the HEALING CAN BEGIN. 

Next, Justin discusses being ex-communicated by the Mormon church due to his infidelity, and he still seems clearly hurt by it. Heather feels for him and Whitney Rose, and she worries she’s going to get a letter too at some point. Andy wonders if divorce is uncommon in the LDS church, and Lisa chimes in, “John is divorced! John’s dad is divorced. Most of my family is divorced! It’s okay to get divorced in the Mormon religion.” Heather mumbles, “I disagree, but that’s my opinion. I’m still married to my husband in the eyes of the church.” Lisa tells Heather she can get unsealed from her husband, and Heather says that’s not true.

If some of you are lost about what they’re talking about, in the LDS faith, you get “sealed” to your family for all eternity… even if you get a divorce. Heather is wrong, though, because you do have options. For instance, my husband was married in the temple to his first wife, and they’ve been divorced for nearly 15 years. Just three weeks ago (!), his ex called and asked if he would give her permission to unseal from him (!!) so she could seal with her new husband. (!!!)

This came as a total shock to us because we had both requested the church remove us from their records long ago, and when you are excommunicated, you lose all the blessings and seals that come with being a Mormon. It says it right in the letter, so why were we even being bothered? We both felt terrible that his ex had to go through the humiliation of asking for permission to be with another man in eternity, so my hubs wrote a SCATHING letter to the bishop that made her do it, and many apologies were given. So, Heather… look into it, hon. 

Anyways! Robert Sr. is asked about his unorthodox marriage to Mary, and he is still fuming about Jen Shah’s grandpa f*cker comment. He is none too happy, and while Mary tries to assuage his anger by mentioning that Jen apologized, he’s still pretty raw about the whole thing. First, they’ve been married for 22 years, so BE GONE, HATERS. Second, he affirms they didn’t marry over money, and Mary is touched when he calls her his equal. 

Robert Sr. and Sharrieff are asked about Mary’s discord with Jen throughout the season. Robert was uncomfortable watching it, and Sharrieff gets in coach pep talk mode and says to Robert, “I want you to understand this, brother. I told Jen that what she said was unacceptable. You don’t talk about people’s marriages like that.” He apologizes to Robert and hopes they can move on, and Robert graciously accepts. 

Next, Whitney is asked about her father, Steve. She instantly starts crying, and she says that while they grew close during filming, Whitney hasn’t seen him since her last birthday. Despite texting him every other day, he’s not responding, and the silence is weighing down on her heart. Big boob jokes aside, my heart aches for this woman. Addiction is terrible, and hearing Whitney and her dad are back to square one made my eyes well up. Also, Steve’s hair is not a wig. KNOW THAT. 

Andy turns his attention to Meredith Marks and Seth, and he asks how their marriage is going. “Fantastic.” Andy presses for more details, and Meredith is all, “Sorry. Why would I openly discuss anything about my marriage around this group?” WHOA! Girl, wake up and realize what show you’re on. This is HOUSEWIVES, not RuPaul’s Best Friends Race! When Andy asks you an embarrassingly personal question on national television, you either shit or get off the pot.

Moving on, Andy asks about Meredith’s multiple separations, and as Seth’s perplexed face hovers in the background, Meredith states they’ve had a tumultuous marriage, but the show really helped save it. When asked if they both saw other people during the separations, Seth says he never really got over Meredith, so not really on his end. Lisa bleats that Meredith’s news of the separation made her cry because she loves them together. Heather comes in and admonishes Lisa, “You keep talking about how easy divorce is, but it’s hard!” Lisa looks like she’s over arguing with Heather, and she checks out of the conversation. 

Jen attests that she’s not the only person that talked about Meredith’s marriage. Sharrieff adds, “I was upset for my wife, because I know she really enjoyed Meredith, and watching their relationship spiral to this point was hurtful.” Jen apologizes to Meredith and Seth, and she cries, “I never came from a place of trying to hurt anybody.” When Mary reassures Jen that she’s not a bad person, Heather glares at both of them.

The husbands take off, and now it’s time to rehash Whitney’s disastrous girls’ trip to Vegas. We revisit all the ugliness, all the way up to Kimberly Friedmutter’s doomed trust exercise. Andy asks Jen why she was still mad at Whitney after supposedly forgiving her over Sharrieff’s birthday party. Jen explains that she forgave Whitney over the timing of everything, but she still didn’t have the closure over what was said about Meredith and Lisa talking about her. Whitney (and every viewer that ever lived) was shocked by Jen’s outrage on the trip.

Andy asks all the women, “Who here feels Jen preaches loyalty but doesn’t show it back?” Everyone raises their hands except for Lisa. Meredith asks Jen, “If I treated you the way you treated me, would you feel I was a loyal friend?” Jen says no, but she reminds her that she wasn’t the only one that talked about Meredith’s marriage. Then Andy prods Meredith about her feelings about Jen and Lisa’s friendship because it was seeming like SHE wanted Lisa to pick sides at Heather’s Beauty Lab party. Meredith clarifies that she didn’t want Lisa to pick sides, but she doesn’t understand her friendship with Jen. 

Heather laments, “The hard part about Jen Shah is that she is as fabulous as she is horrifying. I just don’t want to have a friendship with the terms of me eating shit all the time.” We start to understand Heather’s real animosity toward Jen at this reunion, because while the season aired, Jen apparently said on social media that Heather buys off the rack from Dress Barn and looks like Shrek. Ooooohhhhh… I didn’t know about any of this. YIKES! 

Andy brings up that the hypnotist event in Vegas looked like it was a turning point for Heather, and she agrees. Mary dozes off, and she is abruptly woken up by Andy when he asks for her input. Jen says she felt targeted by the hypnotist, and we cut to a scene of Kimberly Friedmutter calling her a bully and manipulator. 

“Everyone went in on me, and I was devastated! Telling a woman of color not to talk, and calling us words like ‘aggressive’ is dangerous. I didn’t even want to go there, but it was hurtful!” Mary said she would have just left the hypnotist, and Lisa said that event prompted her to reach out to Jen afterward. Heather and Whitney remind Jen that she threatened Whitney’s life, so how else were they supposed to take her behavior? 

Mary says, “I know Jen has been cruel and stuff, but you do get that vibe from Whitney and Heather. I feel like it’s ‘inbredded’ that they’re better than people of color.” Heather and Meredith acknowledge that white privilege exists, but Meredith adds, “Making accusations like this is a HUGE statement.” Jen runs off the stage and cries into Sharrieff’s arms while Whitney makes a phone call: “Yeah. The racism thing came up. Yes, my boobs still haven’t settled. K, see ya.” 

In the back room, Jen wails, “They don’t understand how hard this is. Your kids aren’t Black, and your husband’s not Black. To show up and be told to not talk, and that you’re a piece of shit! Don’t talk? It means something different for us!” Sharrieff comforts Jen, and he walks her back onto the stage. Andy asks how she’s doing. Jen says, “Sharrieff told me, ‘Baby, not everybody understands it.’ If we’re going to have change, you just have to make people aware of it. I’m not saying you guys are wrong, I’m just telling you why it’s painful.” 

After that whole ordeal, Andy asks the women what they learned. Lisa needs to listen more, Mary and Jen need to work on their communication, Whitney needs to work on her timing and delivery, Meredith is just disappointed in everyone, and Heather hopes she can speak up more and say what’s on her mind. Andy brings out meatballs on sticks in Heather’s honor, and the ladies toast. Then the set starts snowing! Mary tastes it, makes a funny face, and declares, “I don’t think that’s snow!” 

And there you have it, folks! Give up for the ladies of RHOSLC! They have truly earned their place in the Housewives pantheon, and Bravo did a great job of showcasing my state’s beautiful scenery. Filming for season two just started, so who knows when we’ll meet again, but I’m absolutely looking forward to it! See you in the comments section, Blurbers. =)

Jackie Goldschneider Reacts to Gia Giudice Slamming Her Over Analogy as She Shades RHONJ Co-Star Teresa Giudice and Admits Ordeal Took a Toll On Her Own Marriage and Kids, Plus Live Viewing Thread

Published

Jackie Golschneider is reacting to Gia Giudice‘s scathing statement about her as she seemingly claims Teresa Giudice is unintelligent and admits that she and her husband, Evan Goldschneider, were fighting behind the scenes.

Following The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere, and the cocaine analogy heard ’round the Housewives world, Jackie is speaking out. In a new interview, she says she doesn’t regret trying to protect her family, but she does appear to be sincerely sorry for any grief her words may have caused Gia.

When asked about Gia’s statement in which she criticized Jackie, the Bravo mom-of-four took the high road and stated she hasn’t been keeping up with Gia’s social media. Instead, Jackie simply offered another apology.

“She’s a great girl and I would never want to hurt her reputation,” Jackie tells Entertainment Tonight. “I just want to make sure everyone understands that it was really just to get Teresa to understand – at the very end of a long and frustrating conversation – how I was feeling.”

“There was absolutely no truth to that,” Jackie reiterates. “It was definitely just an analogy. I was trying to make the point about … how words can hurt.”

This comes after fans flocked to Gia’s social media accounts and began mocking the 20-year-old and asking her if there was any truth behind the analogy, which Gia ultimately attempted to shut down on Twitter.

“Saying it was an analogy is making it excusable, it’s not,” Gia wrote on February 19. “My character is now being questioned. My name was used to make a point. No one should be used in that way. I am suffering the consequences for such an outlandish and untrue statement. While her marriage is happy [and] in tact.”

Jackie reveals that if she had known at the time that Teresa wouldn’t understand the comparison, she would have never used it.

“Honest to God, I really – I don’t dumb myself down for conversations with people who are not intelligent,” Jackie quips. “It was so clear as day that it was an analogy… and if I really thought that she wouldn’t understand that it was an analogy, I would never have said it.”

As fans know, the only reason the former attorney was arguing with Teresa to begin with is because the Standing Strong author was spreading rumors about Evan cheating. Though their marriage is solid today, Jackie says Evan was initially humiliated and began to partially place the blame on her, which caused them to fight. She claims the ordeal took a major toll on their entire family, especially their four young children.

“My kids were upset,” Jackie divulges. “My daughter, I remember, would cry every night asking if we’re going to get divorced. And I’m like, of course we’re not going to get divorced over it, but they are not used to us fighting. So, it was a really heavy, emotional week in my house.”

She and Evan were united regarding the validity of the rumors, but she admits they fought over the “fourth wall” and the best way to respond.

“He was just so upset and embarrassed and there was no one for him to yell at and be mad at except for me,” she reveals. “I was racked with guilt, because I did bring this into his life and now, he was getting slaughtered. I think that every time that he would get upset and start venting and get mad and angry, it was all coming down on me and I didn’t know what to do with it. So, it was just fight after fight of, ‘What do you want me to do? I told you I’ll leave. Is that what you want?’”

The star adds, “It was just a lot of back and forth and indecisiveness and, you know, at the end of the day, I just had to keep making the point of, ‘I love you more than I love this and I will leave if you want me to,’ and it was just a really frustrating experience, because I felt so guilty and so heavy for it, but there was nothing I could do to fix it.”

RHOSLC Begins Filming Season 2! Find Out Who’s Returning as Production is Reportedly Testing New Women, Plus Live Viewing Thread

Published

Watch out for flying cocktail glasses if you live in Utah because filming on the second season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is reportedly underway.

The newest Housewives franchise has been a big hit with fans as it’s been delivering the type of drama that Bravo fans ultimately crave. As the inaugural season is coming to an end, with the final installment of an epic three-part reunion airing tonight, fans are pumped that the ladies are already filming season two.

According to HousewivesOfSLC on Instagram, all six cast members have been asked back. As far as potential new cast members, the fan account says they cannot confirm anything just yet, but production is allegedly testing a few women out and there may be a couple of “friend” additions to the show next season.

However, one fan doesn’t seem to think the show needs a new cast member.

“Yessss omggg 🙌🏽 is there anyone new [that’s] coming on (tbh for season 2 [I don’t] think there needs to be another cast member added maybe season 3 ),” the person wrote.

Another fan would like to see more of the corky, “high-end hoardingMary Cosby.

“Hopefully we see more of Mary and she is not used as a filler. I know she seems boring but I feel like there are layers there to peel away—and she showed she is shady as f**k at that reunion,” the fan professed.

It’s likely that much of the drama that has taken place at the reunion will spill over into season two because there seem to be many unresolved issues thus far. For instance, Lisa Barlow‘s beef with Heather Gay and Whitney Rose, and vice versa, would probably provide enough content for at least two episodes.

Speaking of the blonde cousins, we’ll have to wait and see if they continue to “put it on heavy” for the cameras in season two like Lisa alleges. She has claimed in multiple interviews that Heather and Whitney are only on the show for fame.

“I would think two of them did [the show] for just fame and are like obsessed with fame,” Lisa quipped while on the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast. “For me, I didn’t go into it for that reason. I’m proud of what I accomplished [and] I’m not embarrassed of anything.”

She also reiterated that sentiment on Sunday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live when host Andy Cohen asked the Vida Tequila CEO who she believes changes their personality the most when the cameras are rolling.

“Do I need to answer this?” she responded with a laugh. “I think the cousins definitely put on for camera.”

Thomas Girardi Accused of Continuing to Funnel Money to Erika Jayne Amid Ongoing Fraud Lawsuits, Plus New $1.2 Million Embezzlement Allegation From Another Client Revealed as RHOBH Star Remains Unbothered

Published

According to newly uncovered court documents, Thomas Girardi is allegedly still funneling money to his wife Erika Jayne from his defunct law firm.

A series of updates shared on Twitter, in regard to the financial crisis the estranged Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple is currently facing, allege that Thomas had previously been arranging payments to Erika and that these payments are possibly still ongoing despite the ongoing dissolution of his firm.

“Breaking: [Erika Jayne and Thomas Girardi’s] daughter had [payments] assigned to them via a court stipulation,” attorney Ronald Richards wrote on February 20. “Those payments are still on going. We are not aware they have been disclosed to anyone.”

According to Ronald, attorneys do not assign fees to their spouses because the money doesn’t belong to them, and when it comes to these funds, he believes the RHOBH cast member should immediately return them.

“I am sure she would not like this revealed but it has to be before these funds are dissipated. Shirleen Fujimoto is of course the notary. She was Girardi’s secretary. This is Erika’s signature and redacted information,” he noted.

 

Two days prior, Ronald revealed details about another former client of Thomas’, who, like many, was allegedly failed to be paid the settlement funds she was awarded in court in a timely manner.

“This claim filed without counsel by Virginia Antonio shows the [sheer] agony,” he shared. “She has been looted for $1,261,985.34. She was in a horrible car accident on 12/26/12! She settled on with a due date for payment on 12/31/18. She used a structured settlement company as well for some of the payments.”

Ronald went on to say that while Thomas made “partial payments,” the woman waited nearly a decade before ultimately being ripped off to the tune of $1.2 million by the active attorney.

“She has had to wait almost nine years only to be ripped by [Thomas Girardi] her pal. As of today, TG can dupe more people because he still has his law license! Hard to believe,” he said.

While Erika and Thomas are facing extremely serious claims of fraud and embezzlement, the RHOBH star has appeared completely unbothered on social media and continues to share plenty of glamorous photos with her Instagram audience.

In her latest image, Erika was seen standing in front of a green screen in a stunning pink gown for what will likely be her look for the opening credits of season 11.

“No correction necessary,” she wrote in the caption.

RHOP’s Gizelle Bryant Tells Mary Cosby to “Go to Rehab” After She Says Husband is “White” on RHOSLC Reunion and Suggests She Married for Money, Plus Reacts to Monique Samuels’ Exit

Gizelle Bryant is confused about Mary Cosby‘s marriage.

Following last week’s second installment of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion, the Real Housewives of Potomac star appeared on Bravo’s Chat Room, where she and co-host Porsha Williams, of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, reacted to Mary mistakenly saying her husband Robert Cosby is “white.”

“I mean, first of all, Mary, I’mma need for you to go to rehab. And I don’t even know what the rehab is. Just go,” Gizelle told her fellow Real Housewives star. “Your husband’s a Black man. Period.”

“Is he light-skinned? Yes. I’m light-skinned. I’m a Black woman. He is a Black man. Know who you married. Let’s start there,” she continued.

Gizelle and Mary: From Churches to riches https://t.co/r6M6GluPeu

— It’s Been Vítor All Along (@VRaduszewski) February 22, 2021

During part two of the RHOSLC reunion, Mary told host Andy Cohen that she prefers white men before saying that her husband is “white, I mean… lighter.” She then suggested that while one can’t go through a 22-year marriage and be happy, she’s happy about “every single Chanel” that her husband had gotten for her.

After a clip of the episode played, Gizelle wondered if Mary was only happy in her marriage “because of the Chanel bags.”

“Yes, and I agree with all of that,” Porsha replied. “And let’s also agree that you told us that your grandma told you to marry him before she died and that your mom was jealous because your grandmother wanted you to. Now we at the reunion and you prayed to God and he told you to marry your granddaddy? Uh-uh.”

According to Gizelle, she believes Mary “wanted the money” and “decided to give [her] mother the Heisman so that [she] could sneak in and marry [Robert].”

Gizelle went on to disagree with Porsha, who said viewers need “more Mary” on the show.

“I don’t want more Mary unless she figured out who she married. And it’s a Black man. Otherwise, I don’t need more Mary. I just don’t,” Gizelle admitted.

In other Real Housewives news, Gizelle recently appeared on Pop Culture‘s At Home, where she reacted to Monique Samuels‘ exit from the RHOP cast.

“I didn’t know one way or the other. People have asked me so many times, ‘Do you want her to come back?’ [And] you know, all of those things about whether or not she’s gonna return. And I’m like, ‘I have no say over that. I have no say who’s on the show.’ But the fact that she’s not is I think a breath of fresh air. I think we all just need to move forward. And move on and move past what happened in season five. Season five was a mess,” she shared.

The third and final installment of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season one reunion airs Wednesday, February 24, at 10/9c on Bravo.

Bravo Responds After Kelly Dodd Suggests She’s Returning to RHOC Next Season, See Her Post Plus What the Network is Saying

Published

5 hours ago

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

Kelly Dodd took to Twitter earlier this week to shoot down rumors of a potential firing from The Real Housewives of Orange County, but what is Bravo saying about the upcoming season?

After Kelly pointed out that she faces rumors of a firing before every new season of the show, the network responded to her statement about “looking forward” to production on the new episodes.

On February 24, Bravo told Entertainment Tonight that despite Kelly’s claims, no decisions have been made in regard to who will and won’t appear on the 16th season of their series.

In a post shared on Twitter on Tuesday night, February 23, Kelly clapped back at the ongoing rumors suggesting she will not be included in the upcoming season.

“It’s actually kinda funny… I’ve heard these rumors every year for the last five years. Looking forward to my sixth season [RHOC] 16!” she wrote.

As fans have likely seen, Kelly has been believed to be in jeopardy of losing her role on RHOC due to the many controversial comments she’s made about the COVID-19 pandemic and other topics in recent months, one of which suggested the virus was “God’s way of thinning the herd.”

“What I meant was, ‘Do these pandemics happen because it’s God’s way?’ I’m not God. I’m not insensitive,” Kelly said in an apology on her Instagram Stories after making the shocking statement. “I feel bad for all the families that have lost loved ones, and I do think we should all stay at home and protect everybody. That’s not what I meant, and I want to apologize to anyone who got offended, OK? I’m sorry.”

Kelly has also faced backlash for not wearing a mask and for wearing a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat during her bridal shower, which many believed disrespected the Black Lives Matter movement.

During an episode of Watch What Happens Live in December 2020, Kelly insisted she did not mean to offend anyone by wearing the item.

“The ‘Drunk Wives Matter’ hat was given to me. My girlfriend gave it to me. She’s had it for a couple of years. That hat was two years old. She thought it was a play on words,” Kelly explained. “I didn’t buy the hat. I didn’t go out and sport the hat. I believe in equality [and] I believe in Black Lives Matter.”

In January, amid the backlash, Kelly was fired from her spokesperson position with Positive Beverage.

Bravo’s statement regarding casting comes just days after a report surfaced on Deux Moi suggesting that Kelly, along with Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Emily Simpson, and Elizabeth Vargas, had been fired from the show, and claiming Tamra Judge was returning.

It was also noted that Gretchen Rossi could be returning before an insider shot down the idea.

Tyrone Gilliams Addresses Marriage Rumors to Sheree Whitfield Following His Prison Release as He Confirms He and RHOA Alum Are Together, See New Photos of Them

Published

6 hours ago

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

Sheree Whitfield and Tyrone Gilliams are free to carry on an in-person relationship as the two have apparently rekindled their romance. Plus, Tyrone is speaking out and addressing marriage rumors.

If Real Housewives of Atlanta fans recall, Sheree was dating Tyrone during her final season on the show, but he was behind bars at the time. Her season 10 co-stars, especially Nene Leakes, repeatedly mocked their relationship, with Nene calling him a “con artist.”

Flash forward to February 2021, and he is now a free man and the pair are allegedly spending a great deal of quality time together in Philadelphia.

The RHOA alum was first linked to Tyrone back in 2013, but according to TMZ, he cut off ties with the reality star once he realized he was being investigated by the feds. The couple reconnected around 2016 and she visited him in prison as much as possible, but after he lost an appeal in 2018, the two split.

At the time, Sheree revealed at the season 10 reunion that she simply could not wait for him and had to move on with her life.

“He would love to marry me right now, but I am not marrying someone who is in prison,” she explained to host Andy Cohen. “I am keeping my options open. I meet people all the time and the crazy thing is, no one has been able to hold my attention or grab it. No one has been able to get in my mind and my head. He is still around, but I say at the same time, I love him and I have said it before, if he comes home and I am still available and everything is great, what he is doing and what he says he is going to do, then absolutely I can see a future.”

Tyrone was reportedly granted an early release from a Kentucky prison last week due to COVID-19 precautions. He was originally sentenced to 10 years for wire fraud after being convicted of running a Ponzi scheme and stealing more than $5 million from investors to allegedly support his taste for expensive cars and jewelry.

It seems that everything turned out just the way Sheree hoped it would as the two are rekindling their old flame.

As for marriage, Tyrone says that it’s a possibility in the future, but he’s not ready to get down on one knee just yet.

Below are new photos of Tyrone and Sheree following his release.

Fans Call Out James Hough For Being Unprofessional On Below Deck Reunion, Claim Show Was “Boring” And “Rushed” As My Seanna Hits The Market For $26.5 Million

Published

ShareTweetWhatsappPinterestRedditTumblrMailFlipboard

Below Deck fans are seemingly frustrated after a “boring” season eight reunion, but if interested, they can purchase the yacht featured on the show, My Seanna, and make their own special memories.

Though production was cut short on the eighth season of the show due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was still a plethora of drama that needed to be discussed at the reunion. However, fans feel like they got the short end of the stick, with many claiming the reunion was also cut short and needed a part two.

Fans took to social media to express their frustration with the taping by claiming it was boring and rushed.

“That [Below Deck reunion] was the worst EVER… and it had nothing to do with being virtual (as many waaaaay better reunions have also been virtual). Far too rushed, rehashed all the same points, boringgggg,” one die-hard fan tweeted, adding a yawning emoji and sloth GIF.

As Bravo fans know, there is typically a great deal of arguing, and at times it takes several segments just to discuss one particular issue. That didn’t seem to happen in this case as several serious topics felt rather glossed over. For instance, as another fan pointed out, third stew Elizabeth Frankini, who was fired prior to the finale, seemed rather annoyed when she wasn’t allowed more time to express how bullied she felt by Francesca Rubi and Ashling Lorger.

The fan wrote, “[Below Deck] reunion was boring. Seemed like everyone just quickly apologized and moved on to the next topic.”

While some claim it was boring and rushed, others mentioned the lack of professionalism by James Hough of the deck crew as he was seemingly looking down at his phone at certain points throughout the taping. He was also called out for his attire and for allowing his dogs to roam free in the background.

“Anyone else mesmerized by James’s [two] dogs in the background of the reunion taping,” one person wondered. Another simply tweeted, “Way to get dressed up for the reunion, James.”

Meanwhile, in other Below Deck news, My Seanna has hit the market for the bargain price of $26.5 million, per Showbiz Cheat Sheet. The 185-foot yacht is large enough to accommodate 12 high-maintenance guests and 12 whiny crew members. The vessel, which was built in 2001, features a master suite, four double rooms, a VIP cabin, gym equipment, a helipad, and a jacuzzi.

Once someone snags this iconic boat, they can expect to spend another huge chunk of cash just on fuel alone, which Captain Lee Rosbach recently explained to a fan via Twitter.

“You can spend between [$50,000 to $100,000] depending on where you fuel and how much your tanks will hold,” he told a curious fan.

You can spend between 50-100K depending on where you fuel and how much your tanks will hold. On charter, it depends on where you go and how long you run to get there and the speed at which you run. A lot of variables. https://t.co/pJyRvm4OzL

— Captain Lee (@capthlr) September 15, 2020

The vessel is currently docked at a marina in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where it is undergoing improvements including “complete engine and generator rebuilds.”

The Below Deck production team is likely gearing up to film season nine following the reunion, which aired on February 22.

EXCLUSIVE: RHOD Star D’Andra Simmons’ Mother “Momma” Dee Turns 80, See Photos of Her Birthday Dinner as D’Andra Opens Up About Their “Ups and Downs” and Admits Their Differences Have Been a “Blessing”

D’Andra Simmons‘ mother, Dee “Momma Dee” Simmons, turned 80 years old on Monday, February 22.

After spending the past few seasons delivering memorable one-liners on The Real Housewives of Dallas and frequently butting heads on-screen with her daughter, Dee celebrated the milestone with a birthday dinner as D’Andra looked back on their troubled past while acknowledging that she now sees their differences as blessings.

“My mother and I have had our years of ups and downs,” D’Andra said in a statement to Reality Blurb ahead of her big day. “The viewers have seen us fight vehemently and make up with sincerity. We are both stubborn, opinionated women that always say what we think, but we love each other to the moon and back.”

D’Andra celebrates Momma Dee’s 80th birthday.

While D’Andra’s relationship with her mother has been complicated at times, mainly due to their many disputes over their family business, which includes nutrition line Ultimate Living and skincare line Hard Night Good Morning, the longtime RHOD star admitted that it was her mom who made her the woman she is today.

“My mom made me who I am, forthright, driven to succeed, and passionate with a purpose,” she shared. “We realize that a mother-daughter relationship is fraught with real life issues, especially when there are two strong personalities. Sharing our differences has been a blessing for us as we have been able to help others who are in similar situations, and we also show the path to redemption and love in the end.”

“No matter what, in the end, we always have each other,” she added.

Momma Dee celebrated her 80th birthday with a small group of family and friends.

Earlier this year, on the heels of the RHOD season five premiere, D’Andra spoke to Hollywood Life about what was to come between her and her mom on the upcoming episodes of the show, noting that while they were in a “great place” at the time, there would be some “trouble in paradise” between them.

“You’ll see it this year and it’s kind of one of my most – it’s not one of my proudest moments [from] the last four years of this show, honestly. So you’re going to see me make some serious mistakes and you’re going to see how I handle it,” she teased.

The RHOD airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
