Keeping it Real is taking a break while I take my son to a college interview. I will miss watching the shows I love, and love to hate, but am thrilled to be able to walk away from the... read on

    We are still in the Berkshires, which normally would be a great statement, but here is painful. Heather is hosting the women for a weekend and Ramona is hell bent on ruining it. Ramona Singer is no longer good television and she needs to be fired. How is it Porsha is being fired... read on

    *Typos are generously brought to you by Pinot Noir.

    These women are interesting individually, but a mess together. They obviously don’t like each other, which is a drag to watch. We start with Shannon, who has taken Vicki to acupuncture. Vicki is screaming and I am getting a... read on

    We rejoin the women’s conference where Mariah and Quad have chosen to talk for the first time in a while.  Quad fake cries, Mariah is tense, and Lisa talks like LaToya Jackson. She speaks so slow it makes my eye twitch, This chick is annoying but don’t mention that on Twitter... read on

    Tonight's typos are brought to you by Merlot.

    I’m watching, but also losing interest. If not for Heather and Kristen I’m not sure my liver could take an entire season of this show. It is slow moving, mean spirited, and a couple women have overstayed their welcome. I think LuAnn... read on

    I watch this show with wine. Sadly the wine doesn’t make it interesting, but it does make it go by faster. We start this week with new girl Shannon. Her daughters are gorgeous. Her husband comes home to take her out for a night at a hotel. She is surprised, but also rude. She has... read on

  • The Career Suicide of LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian

    By Ilana Angel

    This week clips were released from the “scripted reality” show featuring LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. The reaction has been harsh. So negative in fact, that VH1 quickly removed the link. We all saw this coming and called it before we saw any footage, but it is now confirmed this... read on

  • Married to Medicine Goes to the Dogs

    This is not a happy group. They may be happy individually, but as a cast they are not meshing. That makes this a housewife show, not a show about educated and accomplished women. There is so much tension it is uncomfortable to watch. Hard to know if the instant fame changed these... read on
