Today, the Real Housewives of NY reunion show was taped. Although Andy Cohen, the reunion show’s host, didn’t spoil the show, he managed to tweet in 140 characters what we can expect….He tweeted—>”Wrap Alert: THE. MOST. ANTICIPATED. REUNION. IS. ALSO. THE. MOST. DRAMATIC. IN. HOUSEWIVES. HISTORY. Ps I need a cocktail” about 3 hours ago via UberTwitter Unfortunately, I do not have the patience to recap this past season. Read here or here for the backstory. (((The white women bring the drama! Yay! I can not wait to see this train wreck w/ my own two eyes.)))
“I knocked on Halle’s door at a hotel,” Diddy recalled, after his acting coach urged him to jet across the country to claim his role in the movie. “And she was like, ‘What are you doing here?’ I was like, ‘Give me five minutes. Do you remember when people just looked at you as a pretty face? Remember in “Strictly Business” and no one would give you chance? I know you may think that I’m gonna be polarizing, that I’m gonna take your shot to win a Oscar.’ But I said, ‘I’m gonna help you win an Oscar. I’m gonna be believable.’ I said, ‘Give me a chance.’ ” Peep the video here.
(((He’s so damn funny. I love him.)))
How ironic? One of the more innocent stars of “Basketball Wives,” Gloria Govan, caught a “case” back in college. I first learned of this from a comment left on my blog. A visitor wrote,
Laura Said: on May 17, 2010 at 9:25 pm · “I bet Gloria doesn’t preach about the felony she was charged with a couple years ago.”
Looks like “Laura” knew what most of us didn’t. Apparently, while Gloria was in college @ Diablo Valley College (1997) and was involved in a “cash-for-grades” scandal. Student workers in the Admissions and Records Office at DVC were allegedly changing grades for themselves as well as for others. Students allegedly paid upwards of $500 for a grade change. Although Gloria wasn’t the ring leader (that would have been a bit more gangsta, right?), she was involved. Accent Advocate has the story from ’97.
(((Honestly, the alleged felony is not really a big deal. What’s a bit amusing is that she seems to portray herself as if she’s above the other stars of the show–i.e. making negative remarks about them accepting infedility, inferring that she has the perfect relationship, blah, blah, blah. Not to mention that there are rumors circulating that her sister had an affair w/ you-know-who and her fiance is not the most faithful. Gloria, we want to like you, but we won’t you to sit down somewhere for now. Please.)))
