Kordell Stewart’s Baby Mama was Also on Housewives and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama
Real Housewives of Atlanta Porsha Stewart has filed court documents asking for alimony and the ability to stay in the home she shared with husband Kordell and his son Syre. In the documents, Porsha explained that she gave up her business to parent Syre, and therefore should receive alimony. According to an eonline insider source:“She has stayed in that marriage and in that home for all this time because there was a child involved. She loves Syre like he is her own. She was with Syre all the time, and he even calls her ‘Mom.'”
Here’s the funny thing. The Baby Momma for Kordell’s son Syre is Tania Richardson. Kordell has been spotted stepping out with Tania in Atlanta the night before he filed for divorce. Tania Richardson was a “friend of the housewives” in Season Two of Real Housewives of Atlanta (2008). This was the season when Kandi Burruss joined the show. Rumor is Kordell didn’t like her being on the show, however according to this video on Bravo’s website, they were no longer together when she was filming. Perhaps he didn’t like what she said on the show.
In the video titled “Girl Talk”, Tania explains that she was with an NFL star for 10 years and had a child with him. They were engaged, but he refused to commit to getting married, and would get sketch when she tried to talk about it. When she finally ended the relationship and handed back the ring, he told her he was never planning to marry her anyway. What – a – tool. Tania was in scenes as a friend of Sheree Whitfield, but also is in a series of on-line videos that are titled Real Friends of Atlanta. I wonder if this was another attempt at web-series, like the one for the Manzo boys or Simon and his boys. Or perhaps they were testing her a a real housewife and had a lot of footage.
Meanwhile Peter Thomas has something to say about the whole situation.
Real Housewives of Miami is filming right now, and Karent Sierra has confirmed that she won’t be coming back, unless it is in cameo appearances.
Ana, Marysol, Alexia, and Lisa have been shown filming together, although rumors are that Marysol will have a more limited role this year as a friend of the housewives. Joanna Krupa wrapped up filming Top Model Poland and is back in Miama. She’s filmed non-stop for reality shows. The twitter account of Ana’s daughters tweeted this photo of Ana and Joanna together.
Lea Black will also be back. The website for Blacks’ Gala advertises that both Lisa Hochstein and Joanna Krupa will attend this year – so Lea will have a few friends to film with. Conspicuously absent in the tweets and photos is any mention of Adriana de Moura. At the end of the season last year it was revealed that Adriana’s storyline was bullshit. While she agonized over committing to her relationship with Fredric and at the end decided to get married (even though they were engaged all season), it turns out they’ve been married for years. What a slap in the face for Bravo. My guess is they dropped her, but that’s just wishful thinking.
Real Housewives of Vancouver Season 2 Episode 8 by NoMoreDrama
(links to watch the show are on yesterday’s blog)
Last we left the Real Housewives of Vancouver, the ladies were wrapping up their time in Toronto. Now we’re back in Vancouver. For the third week in a row the show opens with Jody. She’s having a wholesome baking moment with cute little Hannah, and has invited Robin (why doesn’t Robin ever bring her kids?) to join them so that Jody can try to recruit Robin to Team Jody and leave Mary with no friends.
Jody claims she’s above all the drama that she starts. She then starts drama by asking Robin why she missed the Top Chef Canada taping. Robin apologizes and explains that she’s not much of a drinker, and overdid it. Then Jody starts griping about Mary, calling her a sociopath for believing her own B.S. This is all in front of Hannah who is making butter tarts.
Jody sends Hannah away and lets loose. She calls Mary “Lucifer”. Robin is not impressed. In her voice over, she says, “A devil calling someone else a devil, that takes the cake.” Robin is very religious, so for her to call Jody the devil speaks volumes.
Jody calls Mary a terrorist. She says she defamed Jody’s company – a pure and virginal company that never misrepresented that they sold used Hermes bags (because vintage wipes away the used stigma) and never put Mia’s name on tags and stuffed them into someone else’s clothing design (Reiko busted them on that one, not Mary).
Robin is just exhausted by the rant and trying her best to get out of there. She tells Jody she’s going to leave because she’s going to meet Mary. Jody says “You’re going to tell her what I said.” When Robin sort of shrugs and says, “yeah I guess,” Jody rips into her and says she’ll have to make Robin obsolete too.
Robin meets Mary for lunch. Mary is sad because no one has her back. Mary is still hurt from the trip because of how Ronnie treated her and says “I’m done.” Mary says that she hasn’t heard from either Amanada or Ioulia since they got back, and feels like Ronnie got to them to have an entourage for when she ambushed her. Then Robin fills Mary in on what Jody said. Mary is happy that Robin had her back.
Ronnie and Amanda have decided that Toronto was stressful. They’ve decided to hire a psychic to take control of their lives. The psychic blows Ronnie away after they play twenty questions and come up with a name of someone Ronnie knows. Then the psychic fishes around saying something about a person who switched religions (Jody’s religion was a big part of the storyline last year – she claimed Mary said she wasn’t even Jewish although I think they all said it including Ronnie. Without going back to look at past episodes I think Jody may have converted, but perhaps she just thinks of herself as Jewish.) Anyway – psychic brings up the letter M then Mary (ummm – maybe she watched the show last year) but Ronnie acts surprised. The psychic asks if Mary is jealous of her. Then she tells Ronnie that Mary doesn’t “get” her. Ronnie says she’s way deeper. She’s on a different deepness. No kidding. At this point hubs, who is trying to take a nap as I type, can’t take it anymore and leaves.
Now psychic says there is someone in the family that is chemically imbalanced or an alcoholic, and she asks if it is Ronnie. Bingo – she has watched the show! Ronnie says she’s stopped drinking. Didn’t she drink in Toronto? The psychic asks if she means it – and Ronnie says she does. Now Amanda arrives.
Psychic asks if Amanda is starting a business. Then psychic says she’s concerned about a J person working with her. Amanda realized psychic is talking about Jody. Psychic tells Amanda it’s amazing that she’s turned out well and calls her one of “God’s Children” and says she respects her for what she’s gone through and what she’s done. I don’t remember enough of Amanda’s back story to know what psychic is talking about, but Amanda tears up.
Ronnie decides they all need relaxation, so she flies the “girls” (minus Mary) to Rockwater Resort to Glamp. Jody is invited, but doesn’t go because she’s sick. Ronnie decides to take this time to share that she and Mary had a one nighter many years ago. Robin is a little surprised and says she can keep her mouth shut. Not that it matters since it’ll air on the show.
Back to Mary. Cole is packing to leave to NY City to work as an intern for former president Clinton. I remember her tweeting about this last year – he got some sort of prestigious internship. They drag this out way too long but I guess no one but Robin is filming with her at this point in the season.
Back to the ladies that have arrived at the Rockwater. They are greeted with a huge champagne brunch. Ronnie claims she’s an expert on gourmet foods and in the same breath says that walnuts and pecans are the same after getting them confused.
Robin brings up what Ronnie told her on the plane. Ronnie says it wasn’t an on-going occurrence and not that memorable. Ioulia voices over that there is nothing wrong with a little hanky panky between girlfriends. Then they share the craziest things they’ve done. Robin – sex in a graveyard. Ioulia asks if it was with a dead body. Then Ioulia tells a joke about a guy having sex with a chick he dug up from the graveyard. Understandably, no one gets her humor. The cabins at the resort are a long walk on a board walk type of path through the woods. Of course they are all wearing high heels and have way too much luggage so it’s funny to watch them struggle. Fools.
Croquet time. None of them know how to play. Robin is too hungry to finish the game. Ioulia turns out to be the most competitive of the bunch. More champagne. They look up and see someone coming to join them. From the previews we were led to believe it is Mary, but it is really Ronnie’s niece Paige, dressed for a nightclub. Paige asks why Mary isn’t there but they decide not to talk about Mary. Good for them. Then the conversation turns to first husbands. Ronnie says she was married for “six minutes”. I thought she had a few kids from her first marriage and was best friends with him still? Robin says five months for her and that “men cheat.” After croquet Robin goes off to take a bath and call Mary to tell her about what Ronnie said. Mary claims Ronnie is full of B.S. She denies it adamantly. Never, ever, ever!
Dinner next. They haven’t been sitting down for more than a few minutes when Amanda asks Robin if she’s talked to Mary since they came to the resort. Robin tries to avoid telling that she already spilled what Ronnie had said earlier, and then she finally says that it doesn’t matter because Mary said it didn’t happen. Ioulia wants them to stop talking about Mary. Amanda can’t believe how much of a gossip Robin is, and Ronnie wants Robin to stop playing mediator.
Jody calls. She asks to talk to the “traitor,” and Ronnie hands Robin the phone. Robin asks to keep the conversation drama free and Jody starts ripping into her. Robin apologizes and Jody insults her. All the other girls are giggling. Ioulia doesn’t like the gang up and turns the mood by being positive.
Now they talk about Amanda. She says she’s come a long way and used to be wild. Not drugs, but wild. Robin asks if she was abused, and she says she was when she was 5/6 and then again in high school. Tears are flowing.
Since there wasn’t any drama at the resort, Ronnie has decided to keep her birthday celebration theme flowing to get some good footage for the show. Amanda and Robin drive out of the city to Ronnie’s place to take her boat back into the city to Granville Island – one of the most popular tourist stops in Vancouver. Look for me in the background (kidding). Robin voices over that when they get to Ronnie’s she’s very friendly and seems like she might have started celebrating, if you know what she means. They all strip down to bikinis to get a little sun on the way in. Jody and Ioulia are waiting at dockside and have a little chat. Ioulia is very gracious about Jody’s appearance on Top Chef. Jody trash talks Robin and Mary. The yacht arrives and the girls are drunk. Robin interviews that the trip from Ronnie’s to Granville Island was about 40 ounces of vodka long. Amanda didn’t drink, but Ronnie and Robin are lit.
Ronnie voices over that she remembers getting on the boat. Jody picks up that Ronnie is smashed right away. Ronnie announces it’s her birthday and she wants to order a drink. Jody then says, “Let me leave so that you can drink.” I’ve got to hand it to Jody, she’s trying her best with Ronnie. Robin slurs, “If you can’t have a free pass on your birthday when the hell can you.” This is the woman that believes people should just have the control to stop drinking. Jody asks Robin what happened to her – and asks if she’s happy because she killed Mary. Robin says – Ronnie and Mary are cool with each other, they are just taking a break. Ioulia jumps in to once again ask them to STOP talking about Mary. The conversation turns to Ioulia, who says she and her husband are going through hell because all they talk about is business, and business is hurting. She says she loves him 1000% percent and fell in love with the man, not the money. Jody voices over she’d rather cry in the back of a Rolls Royce than laugh on a bicycle. Quite the opposite for me.
Then Robin slurs that she can see Mary’s building in the background. Ioulia once again asks them to not bring up Mary. Robin tries to defend Mary and says that she doesn’t see her as malicious. Everyone else sees that Ronnie is getting pissed, and Amanda pleads with Robin to stop bringing up Mary. Ronnie decides to fix things with vodka shots. Ioulia says they serve crappy vodka there, and she’d know being Russian. Robin says “to an alcoholic, baby, the vodka doesn’t matter.”
That sets Ronnie off. Man her lips are big. Ronnie leaps out of her chair and pulls a Richards with her finger pointing in Robin’s face and the cuss words pouring out of her mouth. Jody tells Robin to get up and leave. Everyone seems a little panicked. Jody pleads with Ronnie to calm down and says she’s her best friend. Robin fires back and says she’s not afraid of Ronnie, and if Ronnie has a problem with her she should get the f*ch over it. Finally someone who doesn’t cower to the bully.
Ioulia and Amanda are mortified through all of this. Just as Ronnie calms down (boy she sure has violent mood swings), Jody tears into Robin. Robin tells her to “bring it on.” Then they all just decide they are lucky to be alive, and celebrate to life. Amanda interviews that Ronnie has clearly fallen off the wagon, which is the understatement of the year.
Next week – Mary’s birthday and only Ioulia and Robin go. Ronnie claims “she” drugged her. I suppose someone will try to find a way to blame Mary.
The Dukes of Melrose by Jill
Our dashing Dukes made another colorful appearance this week. One of the best things about the fashionable men of this show is they do not fear color. We tune in each week for the drama but we also tune in for the fashion. Everyone’s fashion! So thank Cameron for the pink, yellow, blue, ok ALL colors of the rainbow you don each week.
The hunt for a manager continues this week but first we peek at a wedding dress that’s ready to find a new home. We get a few more moments with Billy, decades staff member extraordinaire, with pricing skills that can’t be beat. It’s as if his hands can FEEL how much something will sell for. Song it people ” Billy. Billy can’t you tell the number, cuz I want every gown, to be sellllllinnggggg!” This is the tune Christo’s is thinking as Billy does his magic.
One of the beautiful stars of Revenge, Ashley Madekwe, has dropped into Decades on the hunt for a dress for her wedding. The choices range from princess ball gown that practically swallows the tiny star to Sha-bam gorgeous sparkle gown. Success? Well almost. The last gown she tries, while not perfect for the wedding it is perfect for the reception. All I can say is GORGEOUS! That gown is a stunner.
It’s back to the infamous hunt for a manager for the Duke again, and this week it’s the Craig’s list contestants. Ok maybe I should not call them contestants but I’m pretty sure we won’t be meeting the Decades game show winner this week. The first guys is underdressed to not impress followed by one pink loving lady. I think she even spoke in pink. It was a lot of pink. And clearly not the right fit for our chic shoppe. Jeffrey, the one with the most potential, is the last one up and makes it though round one. Next round, the fashion show party in the store to give Jeffrey a chance to “manage”. Best line of the latest round of interviews? When Christo’s references a children’s movie the ever droll Cameron answers simply, “I have no idea, I’m not into children.” Love it!
Jeffrey’s mixer round in the Decades matchmaker game is a go. While the party is a celebrity filled hit with a repeat visit from Ashley Madekwe and the lovely Lisa Rinna, Jeffrey was more wallflower in the corner. Chatting with the intern instead of out with the customers is not what the Dukes need to run the store. Another manager potential bites the dust. Boy keep hunting because you know the right fit is out there amongst the fabulous people of Beverly Hills.
Up next week, manager matchmaker and high price hair cuts while the Dukes hunt for more couture for the clients and have their own Decades growing pains. One thing is for sure, there will be colorful outfits and witty remarks to go with their chic style. Thanks Dukes, we will see you next week.
