On the Real Housewives of Insert City, the cast competes on everything from who has the most money to friendships to who has the most important charity (which entirely defeats the purpose).

âCake Mamaâ Janelle Copeland On Going Into Business With Her Husbandâs Ex

In her previous career, she ran a Best Buy with 250 employees, and was then recruited to work for Circuit City — “but you know how that story ends.” Even worse, she and her husband were both retail managers at the doomed company, so when it went under, they both lost their jobs.

When she and her husband simultaneously hit “send” on online applications for the very same job one afternoon, Copeland knew she needed to start looking elsewhere. More »

And so I was beyond stoked on Monday night when Christine Ha won the title of ‘Best Home Cook in America.’ She’s an awesome chef who specializes in rustic, Asian cuisine. Her palette is impeccable, and she’s also legally blind. More »
