The Real Housewives of Orange County, New York City, and Atlanta met at Bravo’s Awards Show: Bethenny’s blog reveals how it all went down
Bravo’s 2nd Annual A-List Awards took place on April 5 at The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Although it doesn’t air until tomorrow night, here are red carpet pictures of the “Real Housewives” casts.
If you’ve never read the “Real Housewives” blogs, which are posted on Bravo TV’s website, I suggest you do so immediately. Each cast member writes a weekly blog and comments not only on their own cast, but on the cast members of the other shows. It’s become a must read for me every week.
Bethenny’s blog is a particular favorite of mine since her commentary is as hilarious as her one-liners on the show. Here are some excerpts from her blog about the reunion and her impression of the other “Housewives”.
Kim is larger than life, off the rails, I don’t give an F, I drink, I smoke, my rack is hanging out, so stick it. Good TV for sure.
Sheree was shockingly quiet, understated, nice and seemingly drama free (her flaming cling on gay glam friend notwithstanding).
Lisa was tiny and peppy and sweet.
*Did you notice that DeShawn Snow was not photographed with her Atlanta co-stars? Reports surfaced in January that she was not asked back to participate in Season 2 due to her lack of drama and less than exciting story line. “I didn’t see it coming,” DeShawm Snow told Essence magazine after being informed she won’t be coming back for the second season. “They are about to pump up the drama and they didn’t think that I would fit in,” she explained. Producers, Snow added, told her she was “too human for a circus show.”
Snow kept a fairly low profile on the series, choosing to focus on her foundation for underprivileged girls while her co-stars provided plenty of on-screen drama. “I was a little hurt, but I just look at it like I am what I am,” Snow said. “If you look at all the other housewives, they are all different.”
Rumor had it that Usher’s wife, Tameeka Foster, was set to replace her but that claim has since been denied. “Housewife’s” star Kim Zolciak’s friend, Cori Davenport, who was regulalry featured in the show is also said to be under consideration for the spot.
Gretchen is bubbly and giggly and a stereotypically ditzy blonde, but truthfully, she seemed sweet on the surface as well. The fact that she’s dating Slade is too absurd to discuss, so I’ll let the viewers decide if he makes it next season. The blondes from OC have the most boobs and hair and lashes and Lynne made a funny comment that she could carve her initials in her face.Where were the cameras? Truthfully, for a group of 13 women, I have to say, we played along very nicely. As for the husbands, except Simon Barney, most of them are wallflowers, and I’m not sure if George even speaks.Freud would have a field day with this- Lauri “accidentally” sprayed Gretchen with her own personal airbrushing machine and her red carpet dress (which was half white) now had tan on it. She handled it surprisingly well.
New Yorkers are independent. Ramona and I rolled solo while Atlanta and the OC had hair, makeup, friends, artists, drivers, bodyguards – you name it.The fact that my cast is way more subtle is truly astounding in and of itself.
