EXCLUSIVE: Tiffany Moon “Politely Declines” Returning to Real Housewives of Dallas

Tiffany Moon, M.D. graced the screen as the newest member of “The Real Housewives of Dallas” and quickly became a fan favorite for her kind attitude and cheerfulness. In 2021 she joined season 5, but the lone–star had a short-lived Bravo career. The show was placed on hiatus after wrapping up the season. Now word on the street is that the Peacock network is working on reviving the series for season 6. 


It’s no secret Moon had a complicated relationship with the ladies. While filming she shared that she had never had a group of girlfriends before, so joining a group of girls, housewives, was sure to be a challenge. It was evident that she felt uncomfortable during many of the cast outings. It was as if she was forcing herself to have a good time, and to be honest it was cringy to watch at times. 


One thing you might say kept her on the show was the platform. Moon used several moments throughout the show to raise awareness for violence against the AAPI community. We see the efforts across the pond, in Beverly Hills, with Real Housewife Crystal Kung Minkoff. Moon took the opportunity, as an Asian American immigrant, to share her culture with the ladies and the viewers. 


Early in the season Moon was excited to host the ladies for dim sum, a traditional Chinese meal. Those southern ladies were not prepared, or appreciative for traditional Chinese food, most noticeably, chicken feet. Little did Moon know it would be used as a weapon throughout the season. Their poor manners left Moon unimpressed; we’re looking at you Kameron Westcott. 


Moon and Westcott engaged in a lengthy twitter feud. The Westcott’s really showed their colors as they spewed hate, during a time that Asian Americans faced violence at a record high. It’s normal for housewives to fall into twitter wars, but things got awkward when Kameron’s husband, Court Westcott, and brother-in-law Chart Westcott, joined in on the tweets. 


Court Westcott tweeted, “‘Anti-racism’ is racism. It discriminates by the color of one’s skin. They tried that once in Germany, it did not work out well. I don’t understand how many of your patients would be comfortable with you treating them with your open vile racism [sic].” According to Page Six Court Westcott has since deleted his Twitter account.


His brother Chart alleged in a tweet, “I’ve spoken to her twice, once when she was blackout drunk at my house but needed to get home for early work. Wonder if she had a hangover while working on her patients?”


Moon took action against the defamatory tweets and her lawyer told Variety in a statement “The insinuations the Westcotts made in those tweets are reckless, defamatory and applying. Dr. Moon is a professional in every sense of the word and is deserving of the excellent reputation that she’s earned as a physician and as a hard working mother. These attacks on her character will not be tolerated. The Westcotts would be well advised to keep mentions of Dr. Moon out of their social media feeds.”


Bravo denounced the Westcotts horrific tweets “Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Anti-Racism is, in fact, not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr. Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence.”


With rumors going around that Peacock might pick up the series for season 6, fans quickly called on Moon to help revive the series. Moon responded, but to their dissatisfaction, she’ll “politely decline” returning to RHOD.

Brian Redmond Shares What It’s Really Like Being A Part Of “Kandi And The Gang”

Kandi Burrus ain’t ever missed a meal or a coin. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is back with another spin-off: “Kandi and the Gang”. The show follows Kandi’s restaurant, Old Lady Gang, her family and their staff. We’re two episodes in and Brian Redmond is already a breakout star. 


Since filming, Brian describes the experience as surreal. “I really cannot believe it, it’s been a four year journey from when Todd first came to me with everything, and I’m just ecstatic that it’s finally here,” says Brian. “We had a lot of hiccups and a lot of obstacles, but we finally made it. High anxiety is all I can say. As a boss Brian would describe Kandi as laid back, loyal and understanding. He says, “what you see is what you get. She ain’t gonna take no stuff though.” He goes on to say that she is exactly the same in real life as she is on TV.


In episode two Brian opens up about his struggle with substance abuse. Regarding alcohol and drugs he states, “drinking was a part of it, but before the drugs I drank like a normal person. My journey with the drugs started and everything completely went left.” He would wake up and start the day with cocaine. He would even call it his “wake up”, to feel normal. He admits that he would even have the dope man come into his job. Brian is honest and sincere about his struggles in hopes that his story may help a lot of people. “When you’re honest, can’t nobody say nothing.”


You’d think that anyone with a substance abuse history would find it hard to work at a restaurant that serves alcohol, but Brian revealed that the drinks aren’t really the issue at OLG. He takes more issue with some of his coworkers, like Brandon, who he believes should take more initiative as a manager. Brian says that Brandon can be lazy. Brian would describe himself as a team player; if you need a drink he’s got it, if he needs to fry some chicken, he’ll fry some chicken, but he makes it clear he’s not cleaning the bathroom, but he knows who to get to clean it. 


Word on the street is that Brian is a singer, but he would refer to himself as a renaissance man. “As you see throughout, I have a lot of hats, wigs, toupees, all kinds of stuff.”


The LGBTQIA+ representation on the show is real. Redmond says, “I think it’s great to finally start seeing it on TV in this way. Normally you know we’re like the standby or the bestfriend or the one you go out with. We’re usually the add on, the accessory, we’re never really the actual stars of the show.


i’m very much so happy to see it. I think it is about time. I feel like a lot of networks, if you really look from afar, have been scared to do it. They don’t know how it’s gonna reflect. If you see it in real life happening and now you see it in numbers and on other shows, “hey RuPaul”, Then why not try it. It’s called taking a risk. And the risk is coming with some good results behind it so it’s about time. I’m glad they dived in and just went all the way and said hey let’s do it.”


Brian joins us in playing the shady truth game. When asked who is always on time he picks his bestie Torin, and as to who is always late, Dom’Unique and Shawndreca. According to Brian Torin is also the most helpful on the clock, while Shawndreca is the least helpful and always on her phone, along with Brandon. 


No one really gets in trouble anymore, but Brian says back in the day he probably got the most heat. He is closest to Torin and Shawndreca. “She’s been coming over the house. We’ve gotten a lot closer like the last year and a half.”


When asked who he would like to know better, it was a no brainer, Phillip. He describes him as rigid at work, so he would like to see that other side to him. When the staff goes out Phillip will join every now and then. “He’ll pop in, like a plant, then he’s gone. I don’t understand,” says Redmond. 


Lastly, if he could demote anyone it would be Brandon. He’d put him in “dishes.”

Chelsea talked about how her co-stars have played as a source of inspiration to her future. In People she noted, “It kind of helps me see my future trajectory by being around so many successful women.

EXCLUSIVE: Cynthia Bailey Hill On New Chapter Of Life, And Where She Stands With Her Former RHOA Castmates

RHOA Alum Cynthia Bailey Hill joins TRR’s Chase Brown during an episode of Reality Right After to dish on all the new things happening in her life. Cynthia starts the interview off by letting fans know that this next chapter of her life has been very busy. Cynthia stated, “this is the busiest I think I have ever been in a long time. Honestly for me, I have an incredible work ethic and I understand that this industry has a lot of options. I’m a woman of a certain age and there are a lot of talented women out here in this lane so for me I’ve always been that girl that if you let me in the room, I’m showing up every single time.” Cynthia noted that remaining humble in this industry is very important to her spiritually. 


Chase dived right into Cynthia’s time on Celebrity Big Brother (CBB). He wanted to know what her time was like in the CBB house. Cynthia enthusiastically said, “this was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I thought having a background in reality tv would help me be prepared but it did not help me at all. This is a situation where you have no phones, no tv, no yard, no sun, you can’t even walk out the front door because it’s locked! There is no way to decompress and you’re in a house with 11 strangers for 30 days. With that said, it was so amazing because I got to see how patient I was.”


Cynthia mentioned having had such a good time with fellow RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp during their time on Celebrity Big Brother. “I have never laughed so much in my life. Teddi is wonderful, she is hilarious, and we had a great time together. I was sad to see her go but somebody had to be the first to go but I’m looking forward to hanging out with her outside of the house.” Chase proceeded to ask the burning question on everyone’s mind and that is “what happened in the fight between Cynthia and Todd Bridges?” Cynthia explained, “let me start by stating that I was the biggest Todd Bridges fan. Todd Bridges has been around a long time, and I think I may have even had a poster of him back in the day. I was very excited to see but of course he was the very first one that I fell out with. We got into an argument because I didn’t vote for him to get off the block when it was between him and Teddi. He ended up getting on the block at the last minute and Teddi, who I knew was on the block, was a part of my alliance. We did end up exchanging words that I didn’t like but I apologized for my part in it. Now that’s my boy! We’re friends for life at this point.”


At the halfway mark in the interview, Chase brought up the show many viewers have come to love and that is Real Housewives Ultimate Girl Trip (RHUGT) and wanted to know what Cynthia’s experience was like on the show. “I was excited to be a part of the first one because we kicked it off. Fans have wanted this for a long time. It was good until it wasn’t for me. I got a little bit in my feelings. When it came to my Bailey-Que and people not wanting to play my games. I changed the games 50 different times to try and make everyone comfortable. I’m a team player and it’s not like the other ladies had exciting events, but I participated anyway. I just wished I had been met with that same reciprocity. So, it was a great show, but it didn’t end up being the best for me. In the end, Kenya and I had a moment. You know Kenya is like my friend and our rift really hurt my feelings, but it is what it is.”


Chase asked, “Is there any chance of a reconciliation for you and Kenya and why was it so important for you to express how you felt after the Bailey-Que?” Cynthia responded, “I just wanted her to know why I was feeling some kind of way, my feelings were hurt, and I have not always expressed my feelings. It’s important to set boundaries in a friendship and be able to express when you have an issue with that person. At the end of that day, I don’t have any friends that if they make it known that they’re bothered by something its important to discuss. I felt like after that the energy didn’t really change and that hurt my feelings again. It’s hard maintaining friendships on our platform, and I had to put some space between it, but the love is there, I love me some Kenya Moore. At this moment we are not where we use to be and that’s ok because that’s just how life works sometimes. When the time is right maybe we’ll be able to get back to a better place.”


Chase asked about Cynthia’s upcoming Lifetime film Cruel Instruction. Cynthia dished on how this role came to be and everything she wanted us to know about the upcoming film. “First and foremost, I love the Lifetime network! So, I couldn’t be happier than to kick off my acting debut and to have this opportunity with them! I was offered this role and resonated with it because I am a mother, and the biggest priority of a mother is to protect her children. In the movie, my husband and I send our daughter away to a teen treatment facility for troubled teens. She’s getting bullied at school, she gets expelled, and we’re told of this academy that’s supposed to be great and help her, but it ends up being a place where they abuse kids. She gets put through a lot in the film. This is an intense film.”


In talking about her real life, Cynthia states, “I didn’t know much about these types of institutions because I never sent Noelle to anything like this, but we have people like Paris Hilton that are speaking out against these types of places that exist. It’s a conversation we need to have more because this is something that is really happening. So, I’m glad to be a part of a movie that is shining a light on this because it is inspired by true life events.” I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life which is acting. I’m excited about it and passionate about it.”


Cynthia credits having learned a lot through watching her daughter’s father, the actor Leon Robinson. She talks about how he stayed in character the entire time he filmed his iconic role of David Ruffin in The Temptations. She said, “I learned a lot about the process and the business through him. The man played the hell out of David Ruffin. So just being around his acting process I was able to use a lot of things that I hadn’t realized I picked up.” Cynthia and Chase wrapped up the interview by reminding everyone to stay tuned to all things Cynthia Bailey.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 2 Reunion Part 2: Lisa Barlow Versus Everyone!

The reunion continues to heat up as chatter surrounding the memorial for Meredith’s father is brought to the table. Throughout the season nearly everyone had an opinion regarding the exact date of the service. The controversy started as the ladies were off to Vail for their cast trip; Lisa phoned Meredith to say “I feel awful calling you; Jen’s husband is in the hospital, Meredith I hate interrupting you right now, go be with your family right now. I love you, I’ll see you in a little bit.”


We clearly hear Meredith respond “I love you, I love you alright bye.” Nowhere in the audio does Meredith say the word memorial. So for Lisa to tell everyone on the sprinter van, “Meredith is at her father’s memorial, I hate even bothering her,” is concerning.


Lisa is adamant that she heard Meredith say, “Hold on a second I just stepped out of my dad’s memorial.” However, Meredith raises a good question, why would she answer the phone if she was in the middle of her father’s memorial? The future isn’t looking bright for this friendship.


Meredith states, “I was actually in the bathtub, not at the house in Vail, in the hotel in Vail, when you called me, so that is not true I was not at a memorial I was in the bathtub for the second time. It’s enough.” We hear Andy second Meredith’s motion as he softly repeats “enough.”


Regardless if this was a major misunderstanding, we’re watching the demise of one of the longest friendships in housewives history.


As they break for lunch we get a hush-hush conversation between Lisa and Meredith. Lisa says, “Meredith I didn’t call you because I feel like it would be better to say it to everyone at once where I was, but do you know I love you?” Meredith responds, “I don’t know what to know. I don’t want to hear the excuses, please just stop.” 


Lisa storms off the set and goes to her trailer. She gets a producer on the phone and says, “You guys knew what you were doing when you put that in there like I was on a rant. I think what you guys did by adding that in there you just gave them all a reason to fucking say, “thats who you are, that’s who are you.” I’m done, you let them narrate me.” The camera’s walk into  Lisa’s trailer but she was quick to let them know they need to leave.


The ladies return to the set and Andy takes a cast vote. By a show of hands all of the ladies admit that they’ve received mean texts from Mary, except Jennie. It’s shocking that even Meredith wasn’t saved from Mary’s wrath. After Jennie threw her glass at her, Mary would have liked more support from Meredith.


“There was a lot of talk about Mary’s church being a cult,” says Andy. He asked Meredith, Whitney and Jen if they believed that, after attending a service there. Meredith says, “I didn’t see anything at the church that would lead me to believe it’s a cult.” Whitney states, “When I attended no, I question now.” Jen’s answer is my favorite: “I think every church is a cult to an extent.” Jen explains it was a mother’s day tribute, but only to Mary. “They were like losing their minds over Mary, like they’re there for her,” says Jen. Whitney believes that Mary uses the fear of God to get what she wants. 

Cameron Williams, the most outspoken ex-member of Mary’s congregation, passed away shortly after his appearance on the show. The cause of death has not been revealed. “I miss him so much and I am so sad he is not here,” says Lisa, who’s known him for over 5 years. 


The ladies have questioned the authenticity of Lisa’s friendship with Cameron, but it didn’t stop there. The ladies were not convinced that he was on the board of Utah Foster Care, as Lisa made it seem, by having him at the Fresh Wolf event benefiting foster care. 


Whitney is adamant that he was not a board member, but that he was a supporter. Lisa claims he was in the process of becoming a member. There is speculation that Cameron was invited to Lisa’s event because she wanted him to meet Meredith and Whitney, reveal damning information about Mary, and have the ladies take it back to the group, quite clever on Lisa’s part. 


Meredith asks Lisa the million dollar, or in this case the $300,000 question. Did Cameron really give Mary $300,000? Lisa says, “I think I got the numbers wrong. He mortgaged his house to give her money.” Meredith calls Lisa out for lying and recalls a conversation they had off camera. “You flat out told me off camera that he did not donate $300,000. You told me it was about 10 percent of that, and  Mary told me the same thing,” according to Meredith. 


I’m sorry, but did Mary actually admit to this? It doesn’t make her look any better that someone would “donate” $30,000 to her. 


“I might have had it wrong,” said Lisa. Meredith was angry that Lisa didn’t correct that information with the group. Meredith says, “You let everyone else believe that, on world wide television. Lisa pulls out text messages from Cameron. Heather reacts, “He’s passed on, why would you be his voice? I don’t know if he elected you to represent him.” 


Cameron’s text message to Lisa: “I want to text you in case someone tries to misconstrue the truth, Whitney Rose reached out to me through Angie. I don’t know her at all. I didn’t tell her anything that happened between me and Mary.” 


Lisa wasn’t the only one with receipts. Whitney had her own stash.


Whitney’s text to Cameron: “I don’t want to create an issue with you and Lisa but a few of the things that I heard are weighing heavy on my heart and I’d like to hear it from you.” 


Whitney believes he was ready to come out about mary. Mary’s congregation believes she’s God. There’s a clip from when Jen attended a service, and a woman reading to Mary says that she’s a facsimile of God, meaning an exact copy. Apparently Cameron had told Whintey that he had a relationship with Mary in the past.


According to Lisa there’s a support group for ex members of Mary’s church. Whitney has had ex-members of her congregation come up to her and say that the ladies had it right this whole time in regards to Mary’s church.


Jen pointed out multiple times in the season that Meredith hadn’t been a good friend to Lisa. Lisa defends herself by saying “I was never offended by Meredith’s relationship with Mary.” Cut to the scene in the sprinter van where Lisa says the double standard with Meredith is that she supports kindness yet supports the meanest person in the group, referring to Mary.


Meredith has been building a case against Lisa throughout the reunion, proving that she has had Lisa’s back. 


Exhibit A: At casino night, when Lisa ran into an issue with Angie, Meredith backed her up. 


Exhibit B: Jen was very upset about not being invited to the Fresh Wolf event, and at Mary’s lunch Meredith defended Lisa by saying not everyone gets invited to everything. 


To rest her case Meredith says, “I find it incomprehensible that me expressing my feelings of being offended could be enough. There’s nothing that could be enough to trigger that kind of tirade against anyone. I’ve never spoken that way about anybody, nonetheless someone who  professes to be like sisters, family friends, friends for 10 years. Ever.


Meredith claims to have called Lisa three days before her father passed away; apparently Lisa never called to check on her. Two days after he passed Meredith called her to tell her he died and to invite her to shabbat dinner; while at dinner Meredith felt that all Lisa wanted to do was attack her, to make friends with Jen.


Meredith says, “I needed a moment to grieve and a friend to be there for me and you hurt me and you let me down.” Lisa claims she called Meredith back and checked on her. Again, who is lying? Who is telling the truth?


Meredith reads her text to Lisa: “if you love my family please stand up for it, i am in immense pain, suffering daily, what you decide is right for you i always respect, but I am asking for a friend. I have gone through what no one should ever, I am hurting, I love you, I am in extreme pain and feel alone.”


After Meredith sent that text, Lisa would fire the shot heard around the world. “Meredith can go fuck herself I’m done with her because I’m not a fucking whore and I dont cheat on my husband. Her and her dumb fucking family that poses. Why don’t you own a house? Well you can’t because your husband changes jobs every five minutes. Meredith is a piece of shit ; I have your back I’m offended by that fuck you that fucking piece of shit garbage whore. I fucking hate her, shes  a whore she’s fucked half of new york, she can go fuck herself.”


Meredith states that the hatred that the delivery came with is what resonated with her. “I couldn’t even sit and watch it. I’d stop, It took me about an hour to get through it. I was sick. Utterly sick.” Whitney does what she does best and stirs the pot. She goes on to tell Meredith, “She told people before this was even filmed exactly that. You should call “Sarah Jane Warner.” 


Lisa apologizes for her rant and blames it on blind rage. She says, “I was trying for you to understand that why is it okay for you to be friends with Heather and Whitney but me not to be friends with Jen? Why is it okay for Heather and Whitney to be friends with Jen but not me. That is where I was confused but you can be friends with everyone but i have parameters on who I can be friends with. That was rough for me.”


Lisa breaks down. She claims that her castmates want to break her all the time.


Whitney offers Lisa some advice and tells her that in a moment when her friend is devastated, just stop talking. Lisa apologizes once more and Meredith says “I saw this less than 48 hours ago, as you say I am processing. I don’t know where I stand. I hate to throw a 10 year  friendship out the window. I’m devastated. I could not fathom someone speaking about me that way. And I have to start to question if you did it intentionally.”


Moving on Andy asked Meredith what she meant when she said she would expose who everyone slept with. Meredith says, “They know who they are, they know what they’ve done. Maybe I know this about this one and that about that one. I’m tired of it. Stop weaponizing my father’s death against me. Stop making up rumors that I turned Jen into the FBI. Leave me alone.”


Andy makes it clear that she’s basically threatening everyone, and Meredith doesn’t deny it. In fact she admits it.


Lastly, Andy brings up the rumor that Meredith and Jen were seeing the same guy at some point. Meredith explains, “I haven’t dated anyone other than my husband for well over 2 years. I can’t speak for Jen, she can speak for herself. According to both ladies it’s not true.


Lisa tries her luck with Meredith one more time during a break. She asked Meredith if they could talk. Meredith says, “I don’t think we can talk off camera right now I’m in the middle of this. Lisa I’m not getting into all this off camera shit.” 


Apparently Lisa was triggered because Meredith was supposedly making fun of her home renovations, calling her house ugly. Meredith says “What would I say about your renovation. so you have an ugly house so you should rip my character to shreds?” 


Next week the men join the ladies. A new episode of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” airs Sunday Mar 13, 2022 at 8/9 central.


The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Candiace Dillard-Bassett Reacts To Firing Rumors, “I Don’t Want To Get Fired”

“The Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard-Bassett is Pushin’ P–podcast that is. She’s spilling all the tea on the latest episode of her podcast “So That’s What We’re Doing?” All I can say is my cup runneth over trying to catch all this tea henny. 


The people v. Candiace

A new segment on the podcasts has Dillard-Bassett reading angry tweets from “fans” with a response from the clapback queen herself.


Angry tweet: “I pray Candiace is fired. I want to continue watching RHOP but won’t if she is on.”


Dillard-Bassett: “This is why I cannot take you seriously “ashy person”, because you can’t read me when you can’t read nor write your damn self.”


Angry tweet·#2: “I feel like Candiace Dillard says the nastiest things to her castmates and then hides her tail when they bark back.”


Dillard-Bassett: “Now see this is gas lighting okay you are gaslighting me because this is literally what they do to me. I don’t start anything with these girls. I’m always available for a ki(ki), for a vibe, for a libation, for a pork chop whatever. I’m never here for the mess. But my house is always on the block and my porch light stays on and I’m always at home. So if you come to my door “rat-to-tatton” on my door of course I’m going to answer and you’re going to get what you came for.”


Angry tweet#3: “Candiace Dillard got to be one of the most evil housewives to ever be on the franchise like right there next to Phaedra except she’s not remotely entertaining she’s just evil. and awful with the emotional development of a 13 year old person. Karma is a bitch honey. And she is coming for you.”


Dillard-Bassett: “What are you even saying because Phaedra is not evil? I guess because she allegedly made up a rumor so maybe they’re saying that was evil? But like I have my thoughts on that that I can’t comment on because I don’t want to get fired.


Dillard-Bassett is referring to the infamous moment Phaedra Parks was caught lying on Kandi Buress during season 9 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, but it seems that Dillard is alluding to some foul play behind the scenes, perhaps by production? Could this lift some dirt off Parks’ name?


Atlanta to Salt Lake City

The “So That’s What We’re Doing?” hosts touch on Jennie Nguyen’s controversial, racist posts that led to her termination. Dillard-Bassett says “She could have just said you know I recognize that my stance on certain things and my beliefs is offensive to people and I regret that I have been offensive to people.” She continues, “I’m going to go away and try to do the unlearning of these things that are controversial and discrimintory, but even that would require her to belive that what she’s saying is discriminatory, and she doesn’t.”


Is she the most hated by Andy?

Co-host Leah Henry addresses the rumors going around regarding Dillard-Bassett; Henry says “speaking of lies or rumors there is actually a rumor going around about you so I wanted you to address it.” 


During a special edition of Watch What Happens Live Andy Cohen confessed his disdain for “one or two” housewives, however he puts aside his personal feelings because they make for great television. Fans quickly assumed: Dillard-Bassett and RHOA star Kenya Moore. 


Dillard-Bassett told the Twittersphere to leave her out of this. She did “@“ Cohen, and said “Do you see what you started?” On her podcast she says, “if you had just sat there Andy and ate your food and just said I love all the housewives, I just think that they are the most amazing contributors to pop culture and they have changed the game.” Her co-host Henry interrupts and says “I’ll be honest this sounds very guilty like it’s you.” Dillard-Bassett fires back with “Well it might be me hell, it very well might be my black ass, and if that’s the case okay thank you, thank you for putting me on the map.”


Fans have found Cohen to be “nasty” with Dillard-Bassett and to that she responds, “Really I don’t feel that?” She says Andy is a “shady boot. That’s his job.” 


Dillard-Bassett claims to have a good relationship with her boss. She even texted him “mazel tov” when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


An excerpt from the housewives exposé “Not All Diamonds and Rose” by Dave Quinn might have given fans the impression that there was a rift between Cohen and Dillard-Bassett. The excerpt references the brawl between former RHOP cast member Monique Samuels and Dillard-Bassett. 


Henry says “It was said, in the book, that you went off about the way that you felt he didn’t respond the way you wanted to.” 


Apparently Dillard-Bassett spoke to Cohen and wanted to know if he was going to do something regarding Samuels, but he was not as responsive as she would have liked. To this Dillard-Bassett responded “Yeah well, you know I can’t divulge our conversations.” Whether Cohen likes Dillard-Bassett: “I don’t care, my check is signed.”


Her co-host then says “And either way even if he is talking about you he said you ain’t going nowhere so praise the lord.”

Interesting enough, on Mar 3, 2022, well after the release of this podcast episode, Dillard-Bassett tweeted “Well. When one door closes, another will open.” Does that mean shady boot (Cohen) gave the RHOP star the actual boot? Filming for “The Real Housewives of Potomac” begins soon so stay tuned.

The Latest On Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Jen Shah’s Legal Case

Jen Shah was arrested back in March 2021. She has since been charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering, she could face a maximum of 50 years, if convicted for both charges.

Here’s what we know as of recently with information pertaining to the case. Shah had requested to be excused from her court appearance that was to take place on March 1, 2022. The reason it was requested was due to Jen living in the state of Utah and proceedings are taking place in New York. The request was granted.

On March 2, 2022, it was reported that Jen’s trial is now being postponed to July 11, 2022, for now. Court documents cite that there are various pending motions and subpoenas. One of the motions that Jen wants is the exclusion of any clips from her reality show RHOSLC. She has requested to keep that footage from Bravo out of her court case because the show is “heavily edited to show a certain lifestyle” and she doesn’t want any of that affecting her real life. Jen’s lawyers also filed a Motion to Dismiss against the Jen Shah documentary that aired of Hulu due to it possibly “poisoning the jury pool.” Is Jen being truthful or is this just to help her case?

Will these motions help the reality star stay from behind bars? Only time will tell but what we do know is that Jen’s assistant who originally pleaded not guilty with her, has changed his plea to guilty in the telemarketing scheme. He admitted to committing perjury and hiding funds back in 2021. However, Shah has maintained her innocence and even stated on an Instagram Live “I think what people don’t understand is, here in America, you’re innocent until proven guilty and I’m innocent.”

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 2 Reunion Part 1: Mary Cosby’s Absence Is Very Much Present

A disclaimer before any show makes for a great episode, or three in this case, as we’ve got a three part reunion for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. 


“The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion was taped prior to Jennie Nguyen’s social posts becoming public and her subsequent departure for the series; those posts are not addressed in the show.” 


The icy ladies of Salt Lake City arrive to set and Andy begins his rounds as the ladies get glammed. Heather tells Andy “our friendship group is in crisis.” Whitney says “it’s like game day, I have to watch the other team play,” as she is watching a playback of Lisa on her phone. Rumors had been circulating that over in Beverly Hills Erika Jayne had questions fed to her beforehand; to make sure Jen didn’t get “the short end of the stick” Andy goes to her trailer to confirm that no questions were given to Erika in advance at the Beverly Hills reunion. We know that Meredith had only seen Lisa’s rant about her the night before and to this Meredith tells Andy “it’s rather revolting.”


The cast caught a lot of flack for their reunion outfits this year, but the one that stood out the most was Jen Shah, with an over the top purple gown and feather collar. Andy points out that Jen’s outfit is quite show stopping; some might have expected her to show up in some kind of white, representing her innocence. There’s an eerie similarity between Jen’s gown and Yzma’s  from the animated film The Emperor’s New Groove. These two might have more in common than just their wardrobe. Even bigger than Jen’s wardrobe was Mary Cosby’s absence. Andy says she was upset about the comments made about her church, and “stunned” by Whitney calling her a predator. 


Someone who surprisingly came for Mary’s defense was Heather; who said that after watching her confessionals Mary said “insightful” things throughout the season. Heather doubles down by saying that Mary was “right on the money” about Lisa; she is referring specifically to when Mary says that Lisa doesn’t know how to be real. Whitney follows Heather’s point by admitting that Mary did have a way of having “wisdom and insight.” To refute this Jennie goes on to say that Mary called Whitney a whore in her confessionals. Meredith says “the show is not healthy for Mary,” but could it be the other way around? Is it healthy to have someone like Mary on the show? Keep reading to form your own conclusion. 


First in the hot seat is Jen as Andy reads the criminal charges against her. She is facing conspiracy to commit wire fraud with a maximum of 30 years in prison, and conspiracy to commit money laundering with an additional 20 years. Jen shares that her family had a talk about possibly quitting the show, but she felt she needed to tell her story. If Jen is found guilty then there is a scent of narcissism she possesses; to go on a reality show knowing the microscope she’d be put under is alarming. Her trial is set for March 22, 2022 in New York.


This season Jen went on an apology tour. She feels she’s apologized more than anyone else on the cast. She believes that there are other things going on in the group, but she’s always singled out; she does not hesitate to look at Lisa. Lisa defends herself by saying she’s never called her friend terrible names. She is referring to Jen calling Heather shrek, and Whitney donkey. Heather is quick to remind Lisa she’s called her friends worse names. “You called friends on this couch that you’ve known for 10 years a piece of shit garbage whore,” says Heather “I rather be called shrek everyday than be called the horrible things you’ve said about your friends of 10 years. 


Meredith has a breakdown as she opens about her personal family issues. She admits to everyone that she’s been dealing with things the camera didn’t see that go beyond her issues with Jen. She’s been grieving the loss of her father who passed away from Covid-19, all while fighting with her sister. “It wasn’t my story to tell, I couldn’t talk about it, I was in a state of immense pain,” says Meredith. Andy asks Meredith if ultimately Jen treated her better than her best friend Lisa. Meredith says yes. Lisa gasps and says “I have to be perfect all the time or I’m held to a different bar.”  


Whitney and Heather, aka “bad weather”, think Lisa manipulates Jennie to fight some of her battles. Jenny was “taken back” by their minion comment during an after show. “I’m her friend and she will not control what I do,” said Jennie. ” Heather explains, “I think Jennie  is in a tough position because she is Lisa’s friend and Lisa has expectations of her friends that are very controlling and I was worried that you were going to be motivated to do what she was manipulating you to do.”


Of course this does not sit well with Lisa to which she says “I don’t want to nor do I control anyone through manipulation or any other tactics. I have no tactics, you guys use the word minions so if anyone stands up for me they are the bad guys and I don’t like that.” Whitney apologizes to jennie if she called her a minion. Meredith interjects to say “I do think there is some level of control that goes on.” 


Things get awkward as they start to roll back the clips of Mary making racist remarks towards Jen Shah, saying when she thinks of her she sees a thug. “Those Mexican people that make all those drugs.” Mary also talked about Jennie saying “you do have a yellow tone, I like the slanted eyes, love it.” It didn’t stop there; she has also imitated Jennie’s accent. As an immigrant woman of color Jennie says it’s difficult living in Salt Lake City. According to her it’s a contrast to Long Beach, California where she says there’s a lot of diversity. All her life she’s been told she needs to “learn to communicate.” 


In that same clip we see Meredith at lunch with Mary where she tells her “please no characters please” while giggling. Although it seemed as if Meredith brushed it off she says “I was horrified and uncomfortable.” 


As they confronted Mary at Whitney’s party Meredith was asked about the slanted eyes comment but she stayed silent. At the reunion Meredith addressed Jennie. “When you’re dealing with a comment that is prejudicial you’re supposed to look at the party affected by it, to get a cue,” says Meredith. In what book did Meredith read that? 


Things quickly turn to Heather as they discuss her comment about Jennie looking like an anime character. “It’s not because you are asian, which I realize and it’s terrible that it came out that way,” says Heather. “You were wearing a vinyl corset. You looked like a cartoon, drawn, physically-beautifully, ridiculously over designed like an anime character, like a cartoon.” Jennie interrupts to say “that’s the thing, I love a compliment, I just don’t like the labeling.” Heather agrees, “I know, I shouldn’t have said that, I’m sorry.” 


One thing about tables–they always turn. Jennie’s use of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) leaves some confused. A viewer’s question suggests that Jennie uses stereotypical depictions of black women when she talks to or about Mary. Jennie says “I don’t see that I have a black accent, I grew up in Long Beach, California. It shaped who I am, that is where I get my accent, I have an accent, whatever comes out, comes out.”


In the last episode Jennie throws a glass at Mary; Andy says “Is that a little bit hypocritical to reprimand Mary for being violent with her words when you were violent with her actions?” Jennie’s response? “I didn’t throw it at Mary, I threw it on the floor. If I wanted it to hit Mary it would have hit Mary.” 


Jennie has apologized to Mary in the past, she even did her make up afterwards so she’s confused why the tension continued. Heather says “there’s a part of me that thinks that Mary is racist because it didn’t stop there and it seemed to always come up.”


Andy reveals to the ladies that he spoke to Mary and she said she didn’t think black people were capable of being racist. “They are. Everyone is capable of being racists,” says Jennie. The camera spans to all cast members as suspenseful music plays. We love a shady camera man. 


They finally address Angie (friend of) this season. A clip shows Angie telling Whitney that there has been a “hiccup” with the party she’s been planning. Angie reveals that according to the restaurant: “we’ve been asked to host events at the restaurant by Lisa’s assistant, we can’t do your event.” Whitney thinks Lisa was sabotaging Angie and her event.


By a show of hands Everyone except Jennie thinks that Lisa is the biggest pot stirrer of the group. Jen says there’s one on each couch. Whintey says “I think that Lisa does a brilliant job of stirring the pot and I always take the baton.” 


A viewer asks Lisa to explain the timeline of the catering debacle. Lisa pulls out a binder of receipts. A watered down version of the infamous Monique Samuels binder from season 5 of Potomac reunion if I must say. They proved very little in Lisa’s defense.


Whitney thinks Lisa wanted to sabotage Angie because she and Angie connect. Whitney insists that Lisa didn’t want Angie to acknowledge Whitney as her cousin. Whitney goes on to say that Angie knows Lisa’s “deepest darkest secrets.”


Andy brings up Heather and Whitney celebrating Angie’s birthday in Cabo. Heather says to Lisa “Everything was paid for. It’s the life you pretend to have that Angie actually has and we enjoyed the spoils of it.” Heather continues, “You know what I have dirt on you Lisa and I’ve held it all back but I won’t hold it back anymore.” It doesn’t end there. To finish her Heather says “I liked her more when I saw her true self show up than I’ve ever liked her, because I don’t want to be friends with a caricature of some teen magazine that she read in 8th grade that said how to be a cool mean girl.”


A viewer question addressed to Jen asks if she felt Lisa wanted to humiliate her when she mentioned Jen’s former dress designer on the show, or was she worried Whitney was being a bad friend by sending him a free skin care product. Jen calls Lisa two faced, and what seems to be an admission, Lisa says she didn’t mean to be. She recognizes that she messed up by mentioning he who shall not be named.


Lisa shares that in a moment not caught on camera she and Jen talked on the phone and she thought that would be the last time they spoke. Lisa says “I love Jen Shah, as controversial as that is.” In an aggravated tone Jen interrupts and says “You don’t have to add as controversial as that is to love jen shah, leave that shit out. Either love me or don’t love me but I’m tired of all the disclaimers when it comes to Jen Shah. It’s bullshit.”


Stay tuned as next week the reunion continues.

The Real Housewives of Miami Season 4 Finale Recap: Explosive Beginning, Sad Ending

It’s the finale of RHOM! This finale starts out with a bang as it continues from the heated conversation between Adriana and Larsa at Alexia’s bachelorette party. Adriana and Larsa continue to hurl insults at each other which led to Adriana accusing Larsa of wanting to be a “Kim Kardashian” look-a-like and Larsa accusing Adriana of being insecure and bi-polar. Larsa ends up leaving the party but if you ask me, I think Adriana hit a button in Larsa. Marysol gathers the remaining girls to enjoy the night’s festivities! 

Just when we thought all the arguing was done, Larsa pops back up to join the girls for a farewell breakfast. Although Larsa greets everyone, she comes in with guns blazing and ready to pick up where she left off from the previous night. She immediately turns her attention to Julia to address those issues. Larsa states, “when have you ever tried to make plans with me?” “When have you ever tried to get to know me, get to know my family, I came to your house and got know your family?” Julia responds, “I felt like making friends with me in real life wasn’t good enough because I only have two-thousand Instagram followers versus two million”. Larsa says she feels like Julia is biased to Adriana and that’s the real issue at hand. Then Adriana and Larsa get into a pissing match yet again. 

As the girls return to their regular lives, we learn that Alexia’s mother continues to be hospitalized which places stress on the family as their wedding day is vastly approaching. Unfortunately, the uncertainty of her mother’s health as she battles COVID-19 looms over what should be a time of celebration.

Larsa and Scottie officially sign their divorce papers. She begins the transition into this new chapter of her life as a single woman. The tone of the episodes takes an even more sad turn as Nicole discusses with Marysol that Alexia’s mother has been released from the hospital with hospice care. Nicole presents the idea of doing a solidarity ceremony with all the girls on behalf of Alexia.

The latter part of this episode shows Guerdy discussing with her husband everything that needed to be cancelled for Alexia’s wedding which originally was taking place this very day. During that conversation, Guerdy shockingly says to her husband “oh my God Russell, she died. Today was supposed to be the wedding.” “Poor Alexia, she just can’t catch a break.” 

The solidarity ceremony begins as the ladies start to arrive to Nicole’s home. All of the ladies work to put their differences aside after being reminded that there are more important things to life than petty drama. As the ladies arrive, Lisa enters the scene in a bright green dress while most of the other ladies are wearing black. Lisa states, “I should’ve worn black.” Although no one is saying it, everyone is thinking she should have worn black. The ladies retreat to the pool area where they each say a sweet sentiment for Alexia and her mother while each placing lit lanterns to float off in the water. 

Disclaimer: Larsa wasn’t in attendance because she was in Los Angeles. Nicole was not in attendance due to work.

The ladies show up in support of Alexia’s family as they bury her mother. It reminds us that the ladies of Miami know how to be there for each other when it is needed. Fast forward four months later, Alexia and Todd announce they are going to get married in St. Barts!

The end of RHOM reflects on what’s to come for some of the ladies. Alexia does elope with Todd in St. Barts. Unfortunately, her marital bliss was short-lived when her son Peter was charged with battery after an alleged physical altercation with his girlfriend. Guerdy: made her way onto Vogue’s list of best wedding planners. Nicole’s $40 million offer fell through on their home, but Anthony proposed with a 10-carat diamond ring. Lisa is enjoying motherhood with her two beautiful children and Larsa is single and ready to mingle now that she has sold her home and bought a penthouse in Miami while Julia and Martina move into their new Miami Beach home!

Rest in Heaven, Nancy Hernandez
