Ronnie Negus of Real Housewives of Vancouver claims Cast Mate tried to steal her deal / Melissa Gorga’s ex Starting to Talk / Kim Richards dishes about her Castmates – Gossip by NoMoreDrama
Real Housewives of Vancouver: Real Housewives of Vancouver is set to air Season 2 next week, and the claws are coming out. Ronnie Negus is already coming out swinging against one of her castmates. Last night she tweeted, “In finding out Again my cast mate tried 2 steal a deal I was offered right out from under my feet I can only hope she finds inner peace.” What is it with the housewives and stealing each other’s business deals? Gretchen and Lynn Curtain had a fight over purses – NeNe and Sheree had an issue over speaking fees – Gretchen and Alexis and the TV News Segment, and now we’ve got dueling bootie videos.
Ronnie seems to have some fans, and she retweeted many of their responses to her. Some supportive, and some bashing her cast mate. She didn’t confirm names so we’re led to believe she was talking about best friend – former best friend – worst enemy – Mary Zilba, who is also returning for Season 2. I can not wait for this show to return. I’m hoping MTH will be able to figure out a way for those of us that aren’t in Canada to watch it.
Melissa Gorga’s Ex-Boyfriend is Starting to Talk: Melissa Gorga’s ex boyfriend Bryan “Bulldog” has been active on twitter ever since Famewhorgas (blog) wrote about him. Rumors that Mel had lived with an ex-boyfriend with an alleged coke addiction had been swirling on the internet, but rumors are rumors and I’ve learned not to believe them. However, there does appear to be an ex-boyfriend (no big deal), and he does appear to have a history with addiction (he’s clean now) and he does seem to confirm in his latest tweets that Melissa did live with him. He also claims that her sister (not clear which one) stalked him – hid in his bushes, went through his parent’s mail, and ran him over with a car. He claims there were witnesses, and that her (Melissa’s) mom apologized. You can read all about it in his tweets below.
All of this is alleged as he doesn’t actually name names, and he could turn around and say he was talking about something completely different. So read into it what you will. Bulldog has said on twitter that he has a non-cancerous brain tumor. He had an operation in the fall, but they couldn’t remove it completely. It sounds like he has been told that he’ll have a follow-up operation. I don’t know if this is why he’s talking now, or if things are going on behind the scenes that are making him mad. He does mention a phone call in his latest tweets. Last week he tweeted that Kim (Mel’s sister) had called a friend of his and asked the friend to talk to him and keep him from spilling all their secrets. Later he said that he had been told that they weren’t worried about him because they thought he was going to die soon. It’s all very sad and I don’t understand what sort of friend would tell him that (even if the sister actually said it).
Below are the latest tweets:
“Seems like some people get so caught up in themselves & there own world. They forget what world they’re actually in. Hamsters in space”
“talk about obsession we all know how obsessed your sis was with me. Hiding in bushes,running me over wit a car going through my parents mail”
“And lets really not talk about who has no life ..bottom feeders lmao eating hamsters crumbs”
“May I keep going cause I made it clear I’m not even warmed up yet.. :)”
“Plenty of witness’s”
“Wait I know I got them going crazy cause I’m starting to speak.. Ohhh lol stop sweating me!!”
“If u wouldn’t have attacked my surgery and wished me dead yas would of had another pass.. NOT THIS TIME!!! This is for all who have had1 :)”
A few hours later
“Now that was just an interesting phone call lmao”
Asked if there were any police reports, he answered:
“lol No iam no cop caller not my style.Her mother had to apologize 2myparents”
” we lived with my parents 4 the 1st 8 months my father threw her out so her mother came lol yas have no idea”
“Put herself through school don’t make laugh.She moved here for 1 reason not to let me out of her sight.Lol it’s all lies people. ALL!!!”
“Time and a place for everything just know the phone call was an atomic bomb 💣and not for me 🙂 tick tick tick lol”
“This is what I had to go through up next lol”
“Have a great night everyone going to sleep. It was fun :)”
Kim Richards dishes about how her Castmates made her feel. Kim Richards answered an on-camera question for OK Magazine. In her long and rambling answer, Kim says that she has forgiven Brandi Glanville for Brandi calling her a meth head on National TV, but that it was one of the worst things that had ever happened to her. Kim explains that Brandi apologized to her, and Kim decided that in order to move on she needed to let her anger go and truly forgive Brandi. Kim also apologized to Brandi for her part in the altercation.
Viewers may remember that Kim arrived to Pam/Dana’s party in an anxious state and spent a lot of time in the bathroom. She was clearly in something of an altered state (do I need to say allegedly for allegedly for that?) and later admitted to being on a variety of prescription drugs. According to sister- Kyle Richards, her breath did not smell of alcohol and her drink was alcohol free that night, however Kim has since come out in public as an alcoholic, completed rehab, and has been alcohol free for the past year.
Kim also talks about not being true friends with any of her other castmates. She says she finds it difficult to trust them because they were nice to her face but said mean things behind her back. I’m not sure if she’s spent enough time with any of them to call them friends. Most of her filming this in the past two years has been in her own home with random people. I am confused by why she is still on the show.
Dance Moms Season 3 – Revenge of the Replacements By: adelaidesmommy
Are you ready for another week? We’re back in Pittsburgh with the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC). The show starts with a call from Devon (from last week’s competition) who informs Abby Lee Miller (ALM) that Maddie & Kendall didn’t win the duet last week. He tells her that the scores were miscalculated and they were actually in second place.
The moms/girls join ALM in the studio for pyramid and she breaks the news about the duet. Sophia is still in L.A. for a television show. It’s time for pyramid. Here’s how it breaks down (starting form bottom):
- Kendall – ALM says she didn’t do a good job filling in for Sophia.
- Maddie – ALM says duets are a team and she’s there because of Kendall.
- Nia – ALM says she did an okay job, but the feet aren’t getting better.
- Paige – ALM says she placed in the top five and that’s an improvement.
- Chloe – ALM said she stood out in the group dance, but overall it wasn’t fabulous. She says if Christi was more honest with Chloe like she used to be, Chloe would continue to improve.
- Mackenzie (top of the pyramid) – ALM rewards her with letting her back into the group routine.
There is no picture of Brooke or Sophia. This proves the point that you aren’t in the pyramid if you don’t perform. So, I’m hoping the moms will squash complaints about this going forward.
This week, the girls are headed to In10sity dance in Woodbridge, Virginia. ALM informs that that two of the replacement girls will be at the competition – Kaeli (mom is Glo) and Bella (mom is Marcia). Boo! These are the ladies that made sweetheart Ally cry. Not a fan. Mackenzie gets a solo and will be the feature in the group routine because it will be acrobatic (acro). Yes! Finally something that isn’t slow and sad.
ALM tells Chloe that she understands acro isn’t her forte, but that Christi has told her Chloe is capable of doing a standing back tuck. She then says the group routine will start with a standing back tuck. Christi gets pissed as Chloe is not confident in her ability to do it. She thinks ALM is setting Chloe up to fail. ALM says Christi told her months ago Chloe could do it, so it should be better now. ALM asks Chloe if she is confident enough to do it, Chloe says no. Christi calls ALM out for causing Paige to break her foot asking her to do a standing back tuck in the dressing room. Cut to a flashback where ALM clearly tells Paige not to do it. Christi says Chloe will not do it. ALM proceeds to punish Chloe by telling her she was going to have a solo, but it’s been cut due to Christi’s behavior. I’m torn here. Christi admits to telling ALM that Chloe could do it – and now, she is saying she can’t. I’m not a fan of braggart moms, so I think Christi should keep her mouth shut if Chloe can’t perform a trick. On the other hand, ALM is wrong to punish Chloe for Christi’s behavior. I don’t understand why she punishes the kids for their mouthy moms.
The acro group routine is called Arabian Nights. Upstairs, Kelly points out that the routine will be a problem for Paige as the arms need to be precise. Christi says it’ll be a problem for Chloe as she is the worst with acro. Jill asks Melissa if Maddie is upset about Mackenzie getting a solo and the feature. Why does Jill ask her something like this every week? Melissa says Maddie isn’t jealous of her little sister, but she is stressed out about not getting a solo. The other moms don’t understand why Melissa hasn’t said anything to ALM about it. In TH, Melissa says it’s been four weeks without a solo, but she is confident that Maddie will get one eventually. She tells the moms she plans to talk to ALM after rehearsal. The moms are shocked.
Melissa approaches ALM about a solo for Maddie. ALM is upset that Maddie chose to listen to her mom during the strike and stay in the car instead of joining ALM in the studio. ALM says she has given Maddie every opportunity, but that Melissa sacrificed her for Brooke and Paige. She says she would have never called Sophia if Maddie had attended rehearsal. Melissa says everyone makes mistakes. ALM says what you did hurt your kid, not me. She confirms that Maddie will not have a solo this weekend.
In the dressing room, Melissa asks the girls to get their stuff together to leave. Maddie overhears ALM gossiping about what happened to Gianna. She tells her mom and starts to cry. Melissa tells her she works hard and is a good girl. My heart goes out to Maddie. For her age, she gets so upset a lot about ALM not approving of anything related to her. I hope this doesn’t damage her in the long run. It seems that you need thick skin for this business, and I’m worried she is just too frail.
The next day, ALM adds an additional practice for acro only. Chloe is struggling and ALM corrects her. Chloe starts crying and Brooke comforts her. Chloe pulls it together. Upstairs, the moms think Chloe got the other solo. Christi says she didn’t. Jill asks Melissa what happened last night and she gives them the details. She doesn’t lie – I listened closely because we know she is a big fibber. The moms thank Melissa for standing by Kelly, Brooke, and Paige. In TH, Melissa says she doesn’t know if she made the right decision.
In the studio, Brooke and Mackenzie have an accidental run-in and Mackenzie is hurt and crying. Melissa goes down to comfort her. Upstairs, the moms can’t believe how big of a deal Melissa is making over Maddie. Kelly says her kids are always passed up, so welcome to her life. She says Melissa can’t stand it that Maddie isn’t the star. Christi says another mom told her that Melissa is second-guessing the strike, but no one twisted Melissa’s arm and made her do that.
In the studio, ALM dismisses all the girls but Chloe. She says even though she doesn’t deserve it because of Christi, she gives the solo back to Chloe. It’s a lyrical routine called “Haunted.” I’m immediately excited as I love Chloe in darker pieces. She has one night to learn it.
In the dressing room, Maddie pulls ALM aside. ALM wants to know why she was crying last night. Maddie says she wanted to ask for a solo and that ALDC is like a home to her. ALM cuts her off and says she has given her so many opportunities and what she and Melissa did was awful and she didn’t deserve it. ALM starts to cry as she tells Maddie that she should have gotten out of the car and walked inside. Maddie starts to cry and says I’m sorry. So, two things. Why is ALM crying over what a little girl did? Can someone please give this woman a man? And secondly, at Maddie’s age, I never disobeyed my mom. If she told me to keep my butt in the car, I did. I don’t think ALM should be encouraging her to do anything less. ALM tells her no solo – not for a long time – and walks off.
It’s time for Mackenzie’s solo rehearsal. She’s giving her one day to learn the contemporary acrobatic solo called, “Dancing Barefoot”. I smell disaster. Mackenzie is not good at remembering her routine. Mackenzie is 8, so ALM is giving her a more serious and complicated routine.
Upstairs, Christi asks about Studio Bleu (replacement girls). It’s located in Ashburn, Virginia – which is a very wealthy area. Jill says they will probably have better routines and costumes. Melissa relays what happened with Maddie and ALM – the crying, etc. She says ALM said she loves Maddie and so does Gia, but that Melissa let them down. Christi points out that Maddie gets to share a nice moment, while Chloe gets told that she is garbage. She says it’s nice that they love her kids, but awful for everyone else. Agreed.
Time to head to Virginia! The girls load the bus and we get our shot of Jim struggling with the luggage. Oh Jim, I wish we knew you more. For those of you who have been waiting to see ALM in something other than black, today is your lucky day. She is wearing black pants and a cardigan – but has a brilliant blue shell underneath. It’s extremely flattering – she should wear color more often. Also, she is rocking a red lip…. I’m loving this.
In the dressing room, ALM gives them the rundown on Kaeli and Bella. She asks them to outperform them. Mackenzie is up first and ALM thinks she looks scared. So what does she do? She lays on the pressure thick. On stage, she looks so pretty and is doing a wonderful job until she forgets her dance. Melissa is frantically trying to tell her to move on. She pulls it together and continues the dance, but it’s not lost on the judges. For those of you counting, yes – her routine ended on the floor. Back in the dressing room, Melissa says (with a lot of disappointment) that Mackenzie is not Maddie. I want to slap her face. What is wrong with Melissa? Doesn’t she know Mackenzie will watch this? Shame on her for comparing her daughters. I have an older sister and if my mom ever said this when I was younger, I would be in pieces. The other moms looked shocked.
The girls enter the dressing room and Christi asks Mackenzie how she did – she says she thinks she did well. In TH, Melissa says Mackenzie wasn’t ready for this type of dance. ALM enters the room and goes through a laundry list of what Mackenzie did wrong. She says she doesn’t want to be mean and yell, but she doesn’t have a choice. She tells the mom they need to pray if they have any chance of winning.
Next up is Chloe. Her costume is awesome sauce. In TH, Christi says she really wants Chloe to win to prove she is a force to be reckoned with. ALM reminds the other girls to be nice to the replacements when they see them. On the way to the stage, they encounter the replacement girls and there is a confusing conversation about age. Both girls look to their moms when asked how old they are. Christi thinks it’s fishy.
We get to see Bella’s solo. She is okay, but I’m not feeling any emotion. ALM says she didn’t use her space well. Kaeli is next. It’s better than Bella’s, but we can see her thinking. ALM says she is a lovely dancer and has beautiful lines and turns. Finally, it’s time for Chloe. She does a great job and puts a lot of emotion into it. In TH, Christi doesn’t feel like she’s connected with it, so it was good, but not great.
In the dressing room, ALM agrees with Christi and tells her that Chloe needs to get back to great. She tells Kelly that Chloe’s future can’t be at the expense of her two kids. Melissa steps in and says everyone makes mistakes. ALM agrees, but then says Melissa put her friendship with these women over the success of her daughters. Then – she says it’s the same as worrying over a guy instead of your kids. She then accuses Melissa of going from one husband to another. Maddie starts to cry. Melissa says we have a happy household. ALM says your kid doesn’t look happy to me. Wow. This is getting dirty. I think a person’s relationship with their husbands or ex-husband should be off limits. I can’t believe Melissa is letting Maddie and Mackenzie hear all of this.
ALM tells the girls if someone has the dreams and passion to dance for a living, nothing should get in their way. While she is saying that, Melissa is talking to Maddie. ALM gets angry and tells her to listen. She says Maddie is more important than any friend or man. She tells Melissa that Maddie considered ALDC as home and she ripped it away for 12 hours and ruined it for Maddie. ALM leaves the room. In TH, Melissa makes an excuse for ALM and says it’s her way of getting back at Melissa. I cannot believe Melissa is making excuses for ALM when she just attacked her character and the father’s character in front of her children.
Maddie cries again and runs off. Jill says it’s okay to cry – Melissa says it’s not because it ruins her makeup and there is no reason to cry. Jill says ALM just berated her mother, father, etc. and Melissa let it happen. Which brings us to the quote of the week brought to you by Jill, “You should be upset too. And you should have put a stop to that women saying that stuff.” Hear, hear Jill. Jill is quickly becoming my favorite. She makes me laugh and stands up for the other kids.
Finally, it’s time for the group dances. ALM doesn’t return, so Christi runs the dance with the group. Studio Bleu does their group dance first. It’s actually very pretty – the girls are talented and on time. There is a rocking chair on stage, but I’m not sure why. ALM thinks the dance was advanced and outstanding. She was moved by the routine. Next are our ALDC girls. Meh. I’m not impressed. It looked like something they choreographed themselves, but what do I know? I did notice that Brooke was in the routine. Did I miss something? I thought she had to prove her worth to return. There was a standing back tuck – but only for Mackenzie. (NMD – Brooke was out the last few weeks because of a back injury the producers just made it look like she was off the team on Abby’s whim. Mackenzie did a roundoff-back tuck – not a standing back tuck.)
Time for awards. Mackenzie gets 3rd place in Elite Mini Solo. ALM says she goes from first to third in six days, so she was clearly outdanced. Next up is Elite Junior Soloist – Bella gets 4th place, Chloe gets 2nd place, and Kaeli gets 1st place. ALM says if Chloe had worked hard over the break, she would have been first, sweet, and amazing. For Elite Junior Small Group, ALDC gets 4th place. ALM puts her head in her hands. In TH, Holly says it’s incredibly humbling because she can’t remember the last time they got fourth. Studio Bleu gets 1st place. I agree with the results. The group routine was not impressive. In TH, ALM says she was embarrassed but humbled by the experience.
Back in the dressing room, ALM says the strike caused them to go from national champions to 4th place. Christi says it was because of bad choreography. I completely agree. ALM says the bad choreography was because Chloe couldn’t do a back tuck. She goes on to say Chloe is always late on Mondays. Christi says it’s because her school gets out at 4:30. ALM says ask for an early dismissal. Christi says she is not going to take her kid out of school. You go girl. Education is MUCH more important. ALM turns to Chloe and says she needs to work harder. Christi tells her to stop picking on the children. ALM responds that Christi is an idiot. Then, Christi tells her ALM that she is the biggest idiot she’s ever met. ALM tells her to get off the phone and worry about her kid. For someone who isn’t a parent, ALM passes a lot of judgment on parenting. Then, Christi tries to contain herself but calls ALM, “fatty, fatty, fatty, and fatty”. ALM says bring it on, I can lose weight, but ugly is to the bone. Christi says ALM is ugly to the core. I’m sick to my stomach. Kelly wises up and asks the girls to step outside. They continue to fight – and ALM walks out says, “It’s like putting silk stockings on a mule with some of you.” And Christi retorts, “Or lipstick on a pig.”
I don’t know about y’all, but I’m just sick over this episode. It was too much – none of them should be treated this way – including ALM. I can only hope it improves. I don’t have previews to share as my DVR cut them off. With a heavy heart, I’ll say, until next week…..
