Paul Finch. (Late ’90s shout-out!) Because not only can we expect an epic, two-hour Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion showdown tonight, but we can also start preparing ourselves for a semi-nude scene from LuAnn de Lesseps in an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. (Where does “semi-nude on a procedural” fall on the Alex’s smutty art to Kelly’s artsy smut scale?) NBC confirms to EW that the Countess will play an art patron who poses for a painter in the opening scene of the Feb. 23 episode. And that, dahling, is the interesting part: Lesseps appears to be only in the opening scene. So, hearing that news, let’s guess what happens to her character, shall we?

Kelsey Grammer talks love on 'Regis & Kelly'; Camille Grammer to talk divorce on 'Housewives.' Who's on top?
In one corner: Kelsey Grammer, A(ish)-list Hollywood star, appearing on Regis & Kelly to talk about his cross-country honeymoon road trip with 29-year-old fiancée Kayte Walsh, and his love for his new lady. Except from the interview: “Somebody came and saw [La Cage aux Folles] several months into it and said to me, ‘You know what the show did for me today?’ She said, ‘It made me want more love in my life.’ And I suddenly realized that she expressed exactly how I felt. I’m not making any kind of suggestion about my past or anything else, I’m just saying what’s happened since I started in this La Cage thing is — this year’s journey has been about to sort of enhancing love in my life.” (By reluctantly kissing your future ex-wife on camera at the Tonys while your future fiancée hangs out in your apartment? I’ll say that’s enhancing!) See video of the interview here.
In the other corner: Camille Grammer, C-list reality star, appearing on a two-hour Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion to undoubtedly talk about her divorce from Kelsey — which was chronicled on the show — but mostly to squabble about like meaningless things “insecurities,” “bullying,” and “lives.”
Who wins the televised battle of the exes?
Season after season of the Real Housewives franchise has taught us to tolerate the insipid spa scenes and insufferable cackling for one reason: The plumped-up reunion episodes. And based on the latest promo for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills two-part reunion (airing on Jan. 27 and Feb. 1), this one will make waves at the water-cooler. Though the beginning of the promo is indistinguishable from a Mad Men teaser — with various cast members saying ambiguous things like, “Keep it straight,” “You started the fight,” and “You compared yourself to Jesus” (It’s the new “Shut the door!“) — the rest of the trailer is plenty juicy: Bullying accusations, alcoholism suspicions, and talk of just how much boob you can show before you are no longer considered a nun. Also: The much-reviled Camille Grammer uses the oldest excuse in the book for her behavior: “This whole season was set up to make me look bad.” Yawn.
Know this, Allison Dubois: You will enjoy the promo embedded after the jump! READ FULL STORY »
Camille Grammer on becoming a Real Housewife: 'I didn't want to do the show ... Kelsey wanted me to do it.'
Surprise. Camille Grammer doesn’t think she’s been accurately depicted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On today’s Ellen, she tells the pedaling host that being on the show wasn’t even her idea in the first place. “Kelsey wanted me to do it, surprisingly enough,” says Camille, of her now-estranged and re-engaged husband. “I didn’t want to do the show. I wasn’t ready to expose my life that way. You know, we’ve been a private couple for a long time … for the most part, we really kept to ourselves. I was surprised he wanted me to do it, too? I was like, Are you crazy? Why are you making me do this?” (As for recent rumors of her departing the show, Grammer says nothing has been decided yet.)
Check out the clip below, in which Camille tells all: READ FULL STORY »
New York Post had the news first.) So what do we know about Barshop? At this point, the bare (heh) minimum: She runs the chain of day spas that focuses on waxing and laser hair removal, is a native of Long Island, and is a single mother of two twin girls named Zoe and Jesse who were born in 2009.The Real Housewives family has welcomed a new addition. Bravo has confirmed to EW that Completely Bare founder Cindy Barshop will be the newest cast member of the network’s hit The Real Housewives of New York. (The
Of course, those three things tell us nothing about Barshop’s personality. And, really, there’s only one thing every fan of the Bravo series wants to know: Which Housewives cast member will she spar with? My guess is she’ll be friend to fellow businesswoman Alex and fellow Long Island native Jill, and the Post‘s piece already states that she’s pals with Ramona. The story also states, however, that she “has connections” to Kelly, which sounds ominous — or at least, as ominous as things can get for someone who lives in a world of cartwheels, lollipops, and rainbows. (And it would be perfect to see Barshop pick up where Bethenny left off — even if Bravo insists that the new cast member is not a replacement for Bethenny Frankel, who has long been rumored to be leaving the show.) And Barshop’s “cool and laudable” life decisions that “will invite watercooler conversations” — according to Bravo Programming Vice President Christian Barcellos — will surely transform LuAnn into the patronizingly supportive frenemy, darling, and Sonja into the passionately supportive friend.
So now I turn to you, PopWatchers. Who do you think Barshop will spar with on this upcoming season of Real Housewives? Vote below! READ FULL STORY »
Office fans are smug. Dancing With the Stars fans are compliant. Gleeks see themselves as experimental, and Mad Men fans are liberals. Oh market research, is there nothing you can’t categorize?
One research firm recently polled 25,000 viewers about 70 TV shows and broke down their tastes by personality traits, according to Ad Age. Some shows, like House and Bones appealed across a lot of demographics, but others had more specific viewers. Such as… READ FULL STORY »
