Brandi Glanville’s Fashion Blunder and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama
Brandi Glanville took a bit of a risk with her Oscar Red Carpet dress. Instead of going to a designer, she decided to
promote wear something she designed with the designer she uses for her clothing line BrandiB. Unfortunately it didn’t really fit her and was – from some angles – downright unflattering and cheap looking. When asked if it was too small on top, she tweeted this: “it was but I didn’t get to do my final fitting! Sooooo gotta role with it!” Considering she was part of a segment that was dishing on Oscar fashions – that’s pretty inexcusable, and I suppose will be chalked up to another Brandi blunder.
Brandi got ripped by people.com Style Watch before the Oscars were even over. They had this to say after giving her the Most Bewildering award:
“From the neck down, Glanville seems to have gotten confused about which awards show she was attending, showcasing her Golden Globes to maximum effect in a dress she reportedly designed herself.
The plunging sweetheart neckline, high-slit ruffled train and dishwater hue were all bold choices for someone who may have otherwise walked the red carpet completely unnoticed.”
Meanwhile Taylor Armstrong was skiing this weekend, and tweeted that they: “Skied our a–es off today! Total blast, my legs are jello! Kennedy is getting so good. I think she will be out skiing me soon!” After that things went downhill for Taylor on twitter, and she must have been getting some nasty tweets because she tweeted this: “If you are n asshole loser and want to tweet something mean to me… U mean nothing to me and I will block ur boring ass!” and then “I have had it! someone threatened to kill my six yr old daughter on twitter! Fuck w me and I will fight back
#imnotkidding” (Didn’t this happen to her last year as well?) After Taylor responded to a few tweets – she tweeted these two (that I can only assume were direct messages to Taylor from Lisa Vanderpump).
@LisaVanderpump: Ummm not that honest…easy now rhofbhok xx”
@LisaVanderpump: Always there to watch over you my personal angel I love you”
Teresa – With my Brother Joey – Love Him
Well it’s official – Season Five of Real Housewives of New Jersey will have Teresa and her brother Joey finally making up. Not only that, but Joey and Teresa’s husband Joe will also get along – even if it is only for a fleeting moment. As the season wraps up filming most of the cast supported Teresa at the NephCure charity event. Richie Wakile tweeted this photo the night of event – a photo that had Joe and Joey arm in arm. Awww. Gia tweeted photos hugging her cousins.
A few days earlier was the Milania Hair Care Launch. We already saw photos of Melissa and Jennifer Dalton at the event, and now Teresa tweeted a photo with Joey. “With my brother Joey – Love him, as the tagline.” Then she tweeted an childhood photo of them (that was from her cookbook). Perhaps this is to dampen rumors that there is still a lot of fighting going on between all the ladies, including plots by supporting cast members (such a Penny the hairdresser and Kim D) to “take down” Melissa and expose her past. I’d like to ignore all that and believe in a happy ending.
Jacqueline Laurita was at the NephCure event – a Zumba class – with the rest of her castmates (except Caroline). I don’t know if that set off some body issues for her, but yesterday she tweeted this string of tweets.
Caroline Manzo is still in Miami and for the first time in a long time I’ve seen a photo of Caroline with a HUGE smile on her face. Perhaps that’s what happens when she doesn’t have to film with the rest of the crew.
Meanwhile Richie Wakile embarrassed his wife Kathy Wakile (and himself) on twitter last night with his running commentary (read from the bottom up). The last tweet was about Anne Hathaway’s dress, that had darts in the top that made it look – well you can read what Richie wrote. Ann’s dress made Perez Hilton’s Worst Dressed list.
And one more photo – just to prove that a bravocelebrity can glam it up at the Oscars. Here’s Tabatha Coffey.
The Amazing Race – Feb 24, 2013 – by MelTheHound
- Idries and Jamil Abdur-Rahman are twin brothers from Chicago, Ill. Both men are OB/GYN doctors. These are Twins. I really hope these guys aren’t as annoying as the last set of twins we were subjected to.
- Max and Katie Bichler are newlyweds from Buffalo, N.Y. It’s wrong to judge a book by it’s cover, I know that but I’m looking at this guy and already I’m thinking douche bag. Hopefully, I’m wrong.
- Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere are mothers from Colorado. They are also roller derby teammates. I tend to like the Roller Derby Queens.
- Bates and Anthony Battaglia are brothers from Raleigh, N.C. The brothers are professional hockey players.
- Chuck and Wynona McCall (Alabama) are a married couple from Daphne, Ala. Chuck is a taxidermist and his wife is a hairstylist. Here is a couple who look exactly like who they are to me. I saw her and the first two words out of my mouth were Wynona Judd.
- David and Connor O’Leary (Utah) are a father and son team from Salt Lake City. Both are cancer survivors.
- Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Kuhle are friends and country singers in a band. Caroline is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone and Jennifer is the granddaughter of John Wayne. Never heard of either of these ladies.
- Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena (YouTubers) are friends from Los Angeles. They list their occupation as YouTube hosts. Dude, wash the shit out of your hair and drag a comb through it.
- Pamela Chien and Winnie Sung (Besties) are best friends from Los Angeles.
- Jessica Hoel and John Erck (Surfers) are a dating couple from Huntington Beach, Calif. Aren’t they cute.. Does this dating couple (on TAR) ever end well for these people?
You can read more about them here… There you have it my friends. The cast that will or won’t entertain us for the next couple months. Each of those cast member links should take you to the CBS website where the photos are hosted.
Welcome back race fans Welcome back race fans. No, Not the Daytona 500, The Amazing Race 😉 . Last week, to recap a bit, 3 teams took a 4 hour penalty after what looked like hours of digging in the hot sand trying to perfect rebuilding sand castles. Those were the country singers (blondes), Newlyweds (gag), and the firefighters. The firefighters were eliminated. And then there were 10 teams (I was really hoping the fake tan newlyweds would be the ones going home.. All that guy is good at is running his mouth as we will see). Also, there was an alliance formed of 5 teams. The agreement was that whoever won the 2 express passes, give the second pass to whoever from that alliance crosses the finish line second (Alliances on this program always work well)..
We open this week still in Bora Bora at 2:36am when the Surfers get their clue telling them where to go next. They are to travel by water taxi to Mota Toopua Nui where they will seek out the wedding chapel and get a blessing from the island priest. Water taxis do not begin boarding until 7:30am. TH Surfers are talking about the alliance and that the first rule, is it doesn’t exist. If they find out that one of the other (non allied) teams learns of the alliance, then it doesn’t exist at all. It’s done. Morning comes and the teams (except Newlyweds and Country) are there waiting to get on the water taxis. Utah (the second of the alliance to finish leg 1), are congratulating the Surfers. Obviously expecting them to cough up that second express pass. Well, turns out, Surfers want these people to kiss their asses for a little while and they Do have until the end of the 4th leg to give it up. So, they tell Utah that it isn’t the right time yet. Utah Conner in TH calls BS on the idea that if one of the others finds out about the alliance, then the deal is off. Bottom line at this point, Surfers still hold both express passes. The alliance has all gathered and the others, notice that there is some obvious sucking up going on for that pass. I’m sure this will come in to play again but for now, all the present teams, sans Country and Newlyweds, board the boats and they are off. They don’t know yet, apparently, that the firefighters are gone from the race.
On the way to the next location we hear from each about how they feel they stand. Some of them are delusional, I think, and others seem to be in it for the fun of doing the race. That’s my read on them anyway. As the arrive they disembark and begin running to the chapel. I’ll note that Wynona isn’t very good at running. I won’t laugh at her, neither am I. The other teams are all younger and in better shape she says.
As they reach the priest he gives the blessing and they get their next clue. This one is a detour. Pick a Pearl or Take a Trunk. Both of these are done under water (where else?). Pick a pearl, teams are to dive down to where several strings of (I assume oysters) are hanging from a line and retrieve and open them to find 2 red pearls. Once they do that, they can get their next clue. Take a trunk is, they have to locate a pile of trunks, and then use it’s contents to set up a picnic table for two complete with place settings. When they’ve done that, a waiter will hand them their next clue. Most teams choose pick a pearl probably because it sounds the simplest. Wynona is still struggling to get up that hill to the chapel (I really do feel her pain, I would be taking rest stops every ten steps). Derby moms decide to take a trunk. For both detours, the teams are to pick up their swimming gear before going back to the water taxis. Most do just that. Most, except Utah as they take a shortcut back to the beach bypassing the swim gear (watch out for those shortcuts fellas, they never work out well – I also think the clue told them to pick up the gear on the way back down the path).
Currently, Utah is in first place because they were first to leave for the location (sans their gear). They get there and they ask Surfers where they got the snorkel gear.. The answer comes back, ‘Back there’.. So now Utah has to go back and get it.. Told ya shortcuts don’t always work out.. Now most of the teams doing the pearls, read the directions and all pulled up full stings of oysters. Eventually the teams figure out it will work best if one is on the boat opening them while the other dives for them. Each team has a separate line with several strings tied to them. Wynona stays on the boat but Chuck is attempting to open them in the water leaving her, to do nothing. She jumps in to help him with the task. They complete the task in the water and then climb back on to their taxi. Well, Chuck does, she has to be pulled out of the water. I know the feeling, I’m not busting her chops about it. I’ve been pulled back on to a few boats in my day too.. Doctors, did not read or did not understand the instructions. The one doing the diving, with a snorkel, was first, having trouble with the snorkel and had to call for first aid (these two do Not belong in the water) and he is only bringing one oyster at a time back up to his brother rather than a full line of them. They are already discussing taking a penalty without really even trying. In the end, they decide to switch tasks and do the trunk one (I’ll get to that in a minute). Youtube is doing a pretty good job and in fact, I think they got out of there first. As Utah is coming back to the pearl location, we see the other two teams, Country and Newlyweds, getting ready to leave Bora Bora on the water taxis. They figure out that they are only about 90 minutes behind rather than 4 hours due to the 7:30 original departure time. We’ll leave them there for a moment.
The Take a trunk task is being handled by Derby moms (and the late teams do this one too). Rather than snorkels though they are actually in diving helmets where they are able to breathe regularly in the pressurized helmet. They are also wearing shoes presumably so they don’t cut their feet with anything on the bottom. They’re just having a good ole time with it. I like these ladies.. Whether they win or not, I think they’ll be fun to watch. Eventually, Doctors decide to do this one too (and will be in dead last place for the rest of the leg). Bringing up one oyster at a time was really a stupid move on the part of two highly educated men. A little later, after all the others have left (explain that in a sec), the other two teams arrive and take on the trunk task. At some point they had agreed to ‘work together’ I guess if at all possible. Neither team has any such real intention (they have to see the priest still and all that). On the way to the detour site we see each team kind of trash talking that agreement with Newlywed Max beating his chest the most about beating the girls on the other team. Whatever… (hold that thought for now).
As the teams complete their tasks, they are to swim over to a personal watercraft (waverunner) and proceed to Motu Tapu for their next clue. It is a roadblock.. “Who is a well balanced individual”.. I’ll get to who does these roadblocks when I know them a little better. The object is for one team member to walk on stilts across a playing field that appears to be about 100 feet or more long, kicking a coconut along the way. If they fall off the stilts, they have to go back to the start but the coconut can remain where it lies. Once they cross the finish line, they get to go to the Pit stop. Last team to arrive, May be eliminated.. The teams arrive from the detour in the order they finished the tasks. Youtube, Surfers, Utah, Hockey, and Alabama. Twin docs are still in the water trying to survive the oyster task, Besties, went the wrong way on the waverunner (and they gave us a soliloquy about how because they are ‘asian’ they are held to a higher educational standard and perform better than others in matters of the brain … in so many words) because they can’t read a map and notice that the land is on one side, and the ocean is on the other side. Plus, 5 or 6 teams left before them and they didn’t appear to pay attention to which way they were going. Whatever… Just sayin.. Maybe it was a little more difficult than I’m seeing. The order the first 4 teams arrived at the roadblock is the exact reverse order that they finished. Derby moms are also there at the roadblock. Chuck finished the roadblock before Youtube (who was first there) but still took 5th place because Wynona can’t manage more than a trotting jog in a foot race. I’ll say this for her though, she does her best and keeps on trying. Utah dad (Dave) ruptured (or he thinks he did) his Achilles on the way to the pit stop. Hockey brothers won the day and a trip to London. Surfers took third.
Back at the detour, Country and Newlyweds are doing the trunk task. This isn’t a very difficult task and they both get through it, Newlyweds leave first followed closely by the country singers. About this time, Twin docs say screw these pearls, do the other task. They know they are now dead last and knew earlier (I think) that short of a free pass leg miracle, would not see another day on the race. The other 4 take off on the waverunners, Newlyweds are concerned about beating Country, Country singers are just having a good time, going balls to the wall on the waverunner. Note, that Newlyweds got out of there first even though they started the task second and they felt the need to tell us that. You see, they have this locked that they are going to beat the country singers. Just hold on to that for a second.
Meanwhile… Besties have finally arrived at the roadblock. I don’t know which one (the name of the short one) did the task but I seemed to hear her say she would be an expert at it because, are you ready for this? She’s good at walking in high heels. I could swear I heard those words come out of her mouth. Derby moms take 6th place. I think it was Mona who did the roadblock.. she struggled a bit but still kind of motored through it. Besties Pam is struggling, a lot. She can’t stay on the stilts and has also blistered the side of her foot. Newlyweds and Country show up (Caroline was a gymnast so she’s good at balancing acts), Max spouts off something about beating these two ladies to the finish line. I don’t know what, by now, I’m over this douchebag. Besides, he sucks at walking on stilts and kicking a coconut with them. I guess I would too so there you are. Country finishes first of the three teams currently there (Docs are setting table places under the ocean).. Newlyweds finally finish the roadblock to take 8th looking at the assets of the people they swore they could beat (heheheheeeeeee).. Besties finally finish for 9th place. Since they spent half the day wandering the South Pacific, they weren’t sure if they were dead last or not. Which is better? To outperform someone or to suck less than them? There’s a difference in my mind and it’s better to outperform. I think they squeaked into 9th place by the hairs on their chins.
That leaves 10th place. We see the twin docs finishing up the table setting detour and arriving at the next island. They already know they are done but do the task anyway. Mom struggled and didn’t quit so they have no right to do so either. It’s about setting examples for their kids. Finish what you start. Been fun seeing you guys on the race but this just wasn’t for you. The two things you hate or fear the most (water and hot sand) took you out of the game. Oh, Yes, This is an elimination round. 2 down, 8 to go before the winner crosses the finish line.
Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff
PS.. Am I the only one tired of hearing about how Alabama Chuck works at Walmart and runs around all day dealing with this that or the other thing? Are they paying him for the name dropping on every episode? I mean, does he get a C-Note for each time Walmart gets a mention on the show? I’m not watching this on TV so I don’t see any of the commercials but are they sponsoring the show? I know Travelocity does, they provide the trips for the leg winners when there is a trip to be given away.
