This week on Watch What Crappens, Matt Whitfield (Yahoo), Ronnie Karam (TVgasm) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog) make their way through the ending of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ third season and straight into the yell-y reunion show, where Kim Richards tries to remember who set what appointments where and Adrienne Maloof gets fired on national TV. We also talk about The Real Housewives of Atlanta and their new neighbors over at Married to Medicine. And of course we must discuss Porsha Stewart’s husband leaving her for someone who may or may not have a penis. Come on in!
Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com), Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com), and Matt Whitfield (Yahoo) were all back together this week on “Watch What Crappens,” and just in time for Faye Resnick’s latest irritating turn on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The guys break it all down as well as every other detail of the episode (including a soundbyte from Camille Grammer) before heading to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” to talk about all things RILEY and Walter. Finally, things wrap up with “Fashion Queens,” which finally answers the question: “What would a public access show look like on Bravo?” Come listen!
This week on “Watch What Crappens,” Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com) tackle all sorts of weighty issues such as Is Dana really as drunk as she claims on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?” And what does Kandi sound like when she climaxes on “Real Housewives of Atlanta”? And most importantly of all, is Stassi truly better than a bottle of vodka on “Vanderpump Rules?” Serious stuff here. Come on in!
Are those croissants I smell? Or just the crusty remnants of a day-old baguette on Kim’s breath? It can only mean one thing: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have gone to Paris! Yes, it’s trip time on RHOBH, and unfortunately for us, you could have found more drama in a Molière play (get it? Because Molière wrote COMEDY. IN FRENCH). The big deal this week was that Kim continued to slur her words and ramble like a sunny homeless lady, and that naturally made everyone think she was drunk again. Inferences were made, questionable jokes cracked, and in the end, Kim wound up crying to her sister in that classic we-shouldn’t-be-laughing-but-we-are way that we’ve come to adore.
Eventually we learned that Kim had taken drugs, but the sort of drugs that keep you sober (seems a bit counter-intuitive, but mmmkay), and in the end, she got a free bag from MAURICE; so all was good. Oh, and Kyle complained to Lisa that she felt there was still tension between them, and Lisa tried her best not to chuck her ass off the Eiffel Tower. C’EST DOMMAGE.
One of the worst shows to land on Bravo in ages has to be Vanderpump Rules, but unlike those legions of terrible and forgettable series like Mis/Advised or LOLwork, this vile turd is so bad it actually has become fun to watch. Now I’m not an ironic TV viewer — I don’t generally tune in to something awful simply to mock it. If I’m ridiculing something, I tend to enjoy it at some base level.
However, Vanderpump Rules is so loathsome, I couldn’t help but immerse myself in it. Even worse, I’ve become invested in it. I wouldn’t say that I care about any of the vapid servers at SUR, the tacky restaurant that provides the backdrop for this show. It’s more that I’m fascinated to see actual Mean Girls doing what they do best: instill fear in the weak, inspire hostility in the equally matched, and divide and conquer the rest. The intrigue stems not from whether Jax and Stassi might reunite but rather from the always looming possibility that someone might please, please put these idiots in their place (spoiler alert: it never seems to happen).
By the time we wound up at the reunion this week, we’d amassed so much deplorable behavior from the entire cast, that it was a minor joy seeing these kids face the stinky bullshit they’d been tossing around. Some people, like professional doofus Jax, caught plenty of heat for questionable, if not downright sleazy choices. However, others like queen B Stassi seemed to only get a light slap on the wrists. Not fair, I say! Luckily, the thrashing Stassi’s surely receiving on the Internet will more than make up for Andy Cohen’s lack of needling. And I’m only too happy to participate!
This week on “Watch What Crappens,” Ronnie Karam (TVgasm.com), Matt Whitfield (Yahoo!), and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) head to Paris! At least through their TVs. The guys analyze the boozy European exploits of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” before heading back to LA to take on the reunions of “Vanderpump Rules” and “Shahs of Sunset.” Then it’s on to “Atlanta” and the miserable “Top Chef: Seattle” finale. Along the way, there’s gossip about Adrianne Maloof, talk of “Orange County” season 1, and initial impressions of “LA Shrinks.” Come on in!
On this week’s Watch What Crappens, Matt Whitfield (Yahoo), Ben Mandelker, (bsideblog) and Ronnie Karam (TVgasm) spend some time gossiping about Lisa Vanderpump on Dancing with the Stars and some private emails we’ve been receiving about Vanderpump Rules cast tragedies. Then it’s off to Paris with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and back to Hollywood for the VR finale and talk about the coming finale of Top Chef. Come on in!
Tempers were flaring on Bravo this week, and we caught it all on “Watch What Crappens.” Unfortunately, Ronnie caught something else that left him sick in bed, but fear not: Matt Whitfield (Yahoo!) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) were able to still talk smack about our favorite shows, starting with the White Party in “Beverly Hills” and leading to more idiocy on “Vanderpump Rules,” fighting words on “Shahs of Sunset,” and blundering pageants on “Atlanta.” Finally, we wrap things up with a few rants about “Top Chef” and tie it all with a bow of gossip. Come check it out!
