Not much happening on Bravo this week, what with the slow death of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but Ronnie Karam (TrashTalkTV) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog) give it the ole college try! That’s your cue to start crying about us moving out of the house.
Also, we weigh in on Bravo’s new tribute to humanity, Southern Charm. Join us!
This week on “Banter,” Jessica Ogilvie (twitter.com/jessicapauline) joins Ben Mandelker (twitter.com/bsideblog) to hash out everything from The Oscars — including but not limited to Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Ellen Degeneres, and many more.
The two also share their rigorous experiences at Nike Training Club boot camp and opine with great warmth about “The Lego Movie.”
Things wraps up once again with further discussion of “Grand Theft Auto,” which continues to entertain immensely.
“Banter” is back, but it’s a little different. After three amazing years, the irreplaceable Lisa Timmons has moved on, but fear not, the podcast will continue with guests every week. In the hot seat this time around is Ronnie Karam (@watch-what-crappens, trashtalktv.com) to help talk about all sorts of fun topics like… anti-gay laws in Arizona, Darren Sharper’s rape charges, Paula Deen’s return from racism, Woody Allen’s molestation controversy, and Justin Bieber.
Okay, maybe not the sunniest of topics, but we still managed to have fun. Come listen!!
This week on “Watch What Crappens,” Ronnie Karam (trashtalktv.com) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) break down the whole Lisa vs. Brandi (vs. Yolanda) fight on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Lines are drawn in the sand, and opinions are passionate. It’s definitely worth hearing our colorful thoughts on the matter.
After that, the duo take on the usual Bravo suspects: “Vanderpump Rules,” “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” “Shahs of Sunset,” and “Blood, Sweat, and Heels.” It’s a short but sweet episode. Come listen!

It’s a big show this week. Ronnie Karam (TrashTalkTV and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog) have almost too much to skewer, what with the second reunion of Vanderpump Rules, the attempted takedown of Lisa V on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Mama Joyce’s vicious plan on RHOA, the so Persian finale of Shahs of Sunset, and the is she/isn’t she an alchie conundrum on Blood Sweat and Heels. Join us!
With the Super Bowl marking the end of football season two weeks ago, I made a pledge to eat healthy for a month and forgo all those carby, fatty meals that had littered my January and February. Dare I say it — I even declared that I would try paleo. Yes, paleo: that utterly annoying eat-like-a-caveman diet that everyone seems to do and love/hate. This was going to be the newer, Stone Age-ier Ben, and with any luck, I might even develop the early tracings of an ab or two.
Naturally, none of this happened.
That’s probably a good thing because otherwise I would have had to have declined the invitation for a media-comped lunch at the newly opened DeSano Pizza Bakery in East Hollywood. With pizza, calzones, gelato, and cannoli on the menu, I can assure you that this burgeoning eatery is not the destination for dieters hoping to embrace their inner Australopithecus. (And whoa, “Australopithecus” wasn’t flagged by spell check. But cannoli was. I don’t understand this world).
After the jump, check out pics of lunch at DeSano Pizza Bakery.
So much happened on Bravo this week that it’s a miracle we fit it all in on this week’s “Watch What Crappens.” We start with the “Vanderpump Rules” finale where seven of our brightest young minds convene to make articulate points about their lives and loves. Just kidding: it was basically just Kristen rolling her eyes and spewing venom.
Then it’s on to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” where Ronnie Karam (trashtalktv.com) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) struggle to understand just what Lisa Vanderpump did to annoy Brandi Glanville so much.
Next we take on the Sunday brawls on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Blood, Sweat, and Heels” before voicing our dissatisfaction with the “Top Chef: New Orleans” finale. Finally, things wrap up with the Shahs’ visit to Iran.
It’s a whole lot of content. Come listen!

Ronnie Karam (TrashTalkTV and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog) are back to celebrate a kick ass finale of Vanderpump Rules, followed by talk of ridiculous Carlton’s stupid attempt to get attention on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the trip the Shahs turkeys took to Turkey. We even got some Top Chef talk in this week! Join us!
This week on “Watch What Crappens” we don some protective gear and head straight into the big fist fights that appeared on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Vanderpump Rules.” Ben Mandelker (twitter.com/bsideblog) and Ronnie Karam (trashtalktv.com) break everything down — from the gay sidekicks to the pathological liars. Also joining in the fray is Katie Cazorla (twitter.com/thepaintednail) who gives us all sorts of gossip about the Bravo stars she ran into over the course of the week.
Along the way, we tackle “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” “Shahs of Sunset,” and “Blood, Sweat, and Heels.” Oh, and don’t forget all the gossip. From Apollo to Ramona, we’ve got you covered. Come listen!
This week on “Banter with Ben and Lisa,” Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Lisa Timmons weigh in on NFL player Richard Sherman and his recent postgame rant. Classless maniac or amped up athlete?
Then it’s on to Justin Bieber, whose recent egging spree may land him behind bars. Plus, Ben and Lisa discuss a Florida teen who’s been suspended from school for doing gay porn, and after that, there’s talk of “Downton Abbey,” “Sherlock,” and Tyler Florence’s San Francisco restaurant, Wayfare Tavern. Oh, and Pussy Riot too!
Other topics include cell phone use when driving, Grand Theft Auto V, and, of course, Sade. Come listen!
