    Kim D. (on RHONJ Softball Game, Luis' IG Videos, Men of RHONJ & Sutton / Diana RHOBH Showdown!)

    Play ball! The RHONJ headed back to Brooklyn for their annual softball game and the night was not without its drama. Kim D. breaks down all that went on much on which involved newbie Danielle Cabral. In other RHONJ news, Luis has been getting us busy with his daily IG videos, Jennifer Aydin has been feuding with everyone, except of course Tre, Margaret and Tre seem peaceful “enough” and we are in the final countdown to Tre’s big day of August 6th - thank you Ramona Singer. Heading west, we deep dive this past weeks RHOBH which ended in one epic showdown between newbie Diana Jenkins and one miss Sutton Stracke at Garcelle’s birthday party. F bombs were dropped, splits were made, no shows a la Denise Richards took place, Birkin cakes were ate all while looking fabulous.

    TODD & JULIE CHRISLEY (on Chrisley Knows Best, Family, The Kardashians, Joining RHOBH & The Future)

    TODD & JULIE CHRISLEY (on Chrisley Knows Best, Family, The Kardashians, Joining RHOBH & The Future)

    Today we share this chat with Julie and Todd Chrisley recorded just a few short months ago. Were there signs? Should we have known? As they say, hindsight is 2020.


    Todd and Julie Chrisley step Behind The Rope. Todd and Julie reminisce about the epic journey over the past eight years from day one to present that we have all watched play out week after week on Chrisley Knows Best. We chat highs & lows both on and off camera, Chase, Savannah, Grayson, Chloe, Nanny Faye, just who wears the pants in this family, that “other” reality TV fam known as The Kardashians, whether Todd is really as “particular” in real life about everything as he seems on the small screen, and which Real Housewives would Julie and Todd like to join. We discuss all the spin offs - According To Chrisley, Growing Up Chrisley, What’s Cooking with Julie, biggest misconceptions, and just what is next for this family that refuses to slow down any time soon. One thing that is next, is a partnership with Nutrisystem which has helped both Todd and Julie on their journey to weight loss (see the link below for a special offer from Nutrisystem and The Chrisley’s to get started today!)

    Diana Jenkins' Room 23, Crystal's 14 Friends, Kyle's Mastermind, Sutton's Clap Backs & Erika Jayne's Love For It All!

    Diana Jenkins' Room 23, Crystal's 14 Friends, Kyle's Mastermind, Sutton's Clap Backs & Erika Jayne's Love For It All!

    Diana Jenkins. When has a new Real Housewife given us so much so quickly. We break down all the recent headlines Ms. Jenkins has made recently - famous friends, racially incentive comments, Room 23 featuring a scantily clad Lisa Rinna, allegations that she was a high end Madame and seemingly false tabloid fodder in the form of Robert Downey Jr. comments. In other RHOBH news, we have the case of 14 missing friends, Erika Jayne loving life this season, Sutton Stracke’s clap backs, the freezing over of all in the form of an EJ/Sutton, dare we say, budding friendship and last but certainly not least, what happens after this season with all our favorite Diamond Holders.

    Braunwyn Windham Burke (on RHOC Past/Present/Future, Coming Out, Recovery, Castmates & "Fake" Storylines!) II

    Braunwyn Windham Burke (on RHOC Past/Present/Future, Coming Out, Recovery, Castmates & "Fake" Storylines!) II

    Braunwyn Windham Burke steps Behind The Rope. Braunwyn is here to chat about her experience before, during and after her two season run on the OG of them all, The Real Housewives of Orange County. Braunwyn breaks down the highs and lows of her time on RHOC and all that she faced during this time in the public eye - coming out as gay, revealing she is an alcoholic and showing what society still considers an “unconventional” marriage. Braunwyn holds nothing back in sharing the status of her sobriety, new relationship with girlfriend Victoria and everything else she has going on since leaving the show. Of course, we also break down just why the public did not believe her truth, the masses cried “fake” storylines, what really went on behind the scenes with Production and filming and how and why she thinks Bravo could have handled it all much differently. Finally we chat cast mates such as Vicki, Tamra, Shannon & Heather Dubrow, the breakup of her friendship with Noella and much more. All this as we conclude our epic two part chat with the one and only Miss Braunwyn Windham Burke.
