I have so much love for so many “Real Housewives,” but I believe Kenya Moore of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is my absolute favorite crazy, insofar as she might actually be insane. For those of you who aren’t on board with “RHOA” — where do I begin? She started off on the wrong foot with another new cast member, Porsha Stewart, on the gang’s trip to Anguilla. Names were called, buttons were pushed, weaves were pulled, and it ended with Kenya proclaiming, “I’m gone with the wind fabulous!,” and twirling away. She literally twirled away.
Zeitgeist hilarity ensued; even fucking Beyonce name-checked Kenya when she said her Super Bowl half-time show was “gone with the wind fabulous.” Then Kenya ended up in fisticuffs with Southern belle Phaedra Parks over a Donkey Booty workout video or some shit. Basically, everyone hates her, and so here I am today, right now, presenting you with this here gift to end all gifts: Ms. Kenya Moore’s new music video, “Gone With The Wind Fabulous,” in which she throws shade at ev-ery-one. It is incredible and words do not suffice. Kenya, I live for you. [Official Kenya Moore]
They’re “not here to make friends,” and they’ll probably throw you “under the bus,” but these ancillary characters on some of our favorite reality TV shows serve a vital purpose: They are the pot-stirrers and trouble makers, the assholes that help incite fights and cause trouble. And like a moth to a reality TV flame, they’ll keep coming back, attracted to the warm glow of the production lights. On their own, these people probably aren’t interesting enough to watch (except Allison DuBois — I would watch her until forever) — but their brief time in the spotlight captured our attention, and in some cases made us question humanity.
Below, we’ve chronicled all the most awesomely trainwreck-y, fun to watch minor reality TV show villains. Let us know who we forgot in the comments!

I guess it figures that the only time Bravo’s “Watch What Happens” had a discussion about radical feminism the two guests were:
- A “Real Housewife.”
- Camille Paglia.
Here’s Paglia on why the “Housewives” ladies should be celebrated for the “fabulosity of their sexual power.” After the jump, she continues to criticize second-wave feminism. Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan’s much buzzed about hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend turned out to be a bit of a dud. The skits were weak and LiLo relied heavily on cue cards to remember her lines. There was one gem, however: “The Real Housewives Of Disney,” a spoof on the Bravo series. Watch the clip above and then check out an awesome GIF of the best moment after the jump! Keep reading »
So many mysterious photos posted to Twitter today! First, Jessica Simpson on the toilet! And then this frighting image. What’s next? Ryan Gosling in a thong? Oh, pretty please? Find out who’s under the scary mask over at Celebuzz.
Over the past few years, some very unappealing men have managed to land their own reality TV dating shows. Let’s just say that I have never had any desire to date Flavor Flav. Nor could I ever stand Bret Michaels’ catch phrase “What’s a goin’ on?” in real life. Sure, I do think Ray J is hot, but anyone who has a sex tape is probably just not for me. But now we have truly reached the bottom of barrel. After Tareq Salahi‘s wife left him for Journey guitarist Neal Schon, he has figured out a way to make lemonade out of lemons. Sources close to the “Real Housewives of D.C.” alum say that Tareq is pitching a dating show called “Seducing Salahi,” where 14 women will compete for his affections.

The second season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is set to premiere on September 5th. Bravo had already sent off screeners of the first episode to the press, which features Russell Armstrong‘s then-wife, Taylor Armstrong, buying lingerie in an attempt to spice things up and talking—and even bursting into tears—about how they were going to couple’s therapy. A week before Armstrong was found dead in an apparent suicide, he talked to People about his role on the show and said that he was feeling extreme emotional distress about it. “It got really overwhelming,” he said. “When you get a TV show involved and all the pressure, it just takes it to a whole new level. … We were pushed to extremes.” Keep reading »
All of a sudden, Kandi Koated Nights has a brand new meaning. Apparently, Kandi Burruss of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has branched out from her online talk show and has started making her own sex toy line. We won’t know much about the products in the line until the launch party, which is happening sometime in the near future, but I am crossing my fingers for lots of glitter and animal print. Whatever the toys may be, I have to give Kandi props for thinking outside the box. Thank goodness she didn’t do the expected—like bottle a perfume, or create her own clothes line, like so many castmates before her. [Huffington Post, The YBF] Keep reading »
