Interactions between Jen and Kate Chastain are still strained after their ‘whore – no you’re the whore’ argument from last week. Jen doesn’t care though – she’s gonna be the best stew she can be (which means the worst stew Kate has ever seen) and she has a new ally in Kyle Dixon. Or so she thinks.
Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.
The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.
On last night’s Below Deck, we lost one crew member and gained another. Well, I use the word “gain” loosely, Jen Howell and Kate Chastain needed an HR rep to review sexual harassment policies. Support each other, ladies – no slutshaming aboard the 5-star Valor! And Nico Scholly made a miraculous recovery.
Poor Nico is in his bunk, all by himself, flexing his hand while tapping on his iPhone just waiting for Brianna Adekeye to check his temperature. Instead Jen and Bri are in hula gear at 1am, faced with a mountain of dishes that gives Jen delirium and psychosis. She’s talking more gibberish than usual, and she’s pretty sure that butter knife turned into a talking seahorse. What was IN that dinner Matt Burns made? It sure wasn’t happy juice!
Your favorite reality stars were out and about this week and of course they documented it all for social media.
Shockingly, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador posted a photo with soon-to-be-ex David Beador and their daughter after they announced their intent to divorce. Stassi Schroeder shared a picture from her trip to Paris. Kelly Dodd hung out with Chef Ben Robinson. Luann de Lesseps rocked braids and hung out with RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon for a mirror selfie. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Camille Grammer held her own in Washington, DC.
In St. Martin’s, the wind is rough, making massive waves. Captain Lee Rosbach is worried Valor won’t be leaving the dock for their upcoming charter. Of course, this guarantees that they’ll have super annoying, constantly-unhappy guests bringing a new meaning to expression “rough seas ahead.” Thankfully, after fighting with EJ Jansen over filthy feet, Nico’s brother is gone and taking 1/2 the Scholly a-component with him. Nico temporarily remains, dirty feet and jerky attitude, though! He blames EJ for trying to bait his brother into a fight.
Last night’s Below Deck charter was annoying “AF,” which is how lead charter guest Sarah liked to tag every last thing! I don’t know if she just learned to spell and wanted to prove that she can, or possibly that she thinks English is a dead language replaced by Hashtag Speak, but she was correct in labeling their group “H.M.E”: Hot Mess Express. More like Hot Mess Distress.
The happy couple was only happy if there was booze to be consumed, and her much-older fiance was essentially silent as she careened around the yacht complaining, tantrum-ing, and shrieking like Vicki Gunvalson. Shockingly the one thing aboard Valor that consistently impressed this charter group was Jen Howell. How’s that for a reversal of the status quo!?
Nico Scholly so does not care about cheating on his girlfriend anymore. From halfway around the world, Melissa is sensing that something is wrong and calling him an extra lot about why he’s distancing her. I mean, other than the whole ‘on a yacht in the sea’ thing, she means like emotional distance. The answer: Brianna Adekeye. Big ol’ UGH on that girl!
While Nico is getting his sea quests on, Matt Burns is trying to reconnect with his ex-girlfriend. He suggests they get together while he’s on leave and is met with a flat-out “Nope.” She’s not interested. Strangely, eerily, after the hot mess express disaster he’s been, Matt takes this in stride… straight to the bar.
Here it is: a brand new round up of reality TV stars’ social media photos to kick off your weekend!
Above: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Kyle Richards looking as fierce as ever. Lisa posted the photo and captioned it with “Snatched”- enough said.
