Flipping Out

 

Jeff Lewis & Gage Edward

Jeff Lewis is fighting mad after learning the surrogate he hired to carry his daughter Monroe is suing BravoAlexandra Trent, who has appeared on Flipping Out several times, filed a lawsuit against Bravo for filming segments of her giving birth – including some snarky comments Jeff made about her vagina – without her permission. Alexandra is seeking unspecified damages for unlawful recording, fraud, and invasion of privacy.

Although viewers couldn’t see any of the actual birth process, the camera crew was stationed behind a curtain recording the entire process, which according to Alexandra, was a violation. She also cites that she was humiliated by Jeff’s inappropriate remarks.

Jeff acknowledges that his comments about Alexandra’s vagina, among others, were “a poor attempt at humor” but maintains that he and Gage Edward are “devastated” by the lawsuit because of the negative connotation it gives their daughter’s birth, and also because they considered Alexandra a friend. 

Flipping Out Finale Recap: Full Circle

Uh oh. Bravo may be on the hook for airing footage they shouldn’t have, and in this case, they might have to pay up big time. On Flipping Out last season, Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward witnessed the birth of their baby girl, Monroe, via surrogate, Alexandra Trent. The birth itself was filmed, along with snide remarks from Jeff about Alexandra not “waxing” before the event, and Gage admitting he was freaked out at his first sighting of a woman’s vagina.

Now, a humiliated Alexandra claims she never consented to this footage being aired, and is suing Bravo for damages.

Instagram Roundup: Kathryn Dennis, Tamra Judge, Teresa Giudice, James Kennedy, & More!

This week most of your favorite (and even some of your least favorite) reality TV stars were all about the family time and shared lots of photos on Instagram.

Even with all of the drama on screen and off, Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel came together as parents to support their daughter. Now I just can’t help wondering who took that family photo? Was it Ashley Jacobs?

It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville shared a photo of her son with Kim Richards. She even referred to Kim as “Auntie Kim,” so it’s clear that these two are still very close. If only they both would return to the show to save us from another boring season.

Dorinda Medley & 31 Surprise Guests On Watch What Happens Live; NeNe Leakes Has Beef With Reza Farahan

Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was packed with (reality) star power. Andy Cohen had Dorinda Medley on as his featured guest and 31 other Bravolebrities rang the doorbell before making surprise appearances.

Since the episode was taped in Los Angeles, it was mostly cast members from the Bravo shows that take place in California: Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Real Housewives of Orange County, but plenty of other notable Bravo personalities showed up. It was a really fun episode to watch, but the 31 extra guests definitely took away from Dorinda’s time in the spotlight- at least in my opinion.

Reality Star Easter & Passover Photos- Leah Messer, Yandy Smith, Fredrik Eklund, , & More

A lot of your favorite reality TV shows shared photos from their Easter and Passover celebrations with their families.

Real Housewives alums Heather Dubrow and Siggy Flicker had double the fun and celebrated both Easter and Passover- and documented both holidays, with photos, of course.

Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels enjoyed an egg hunt with her children and neighbors. Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia Abraham, Cary Deuber’s daughter Zuri, Ali Fedotowsky’s daughter Molly, and other reality TV offspring celebrated Easter by hunting for eggs.

It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morgan shared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and  put on her own lip gloss.

Other reality stars shared photos hanging out with their kids like Teen Mom stars Javi Marroquin, Kail Lowry, and Leah Messer. Kristin Cavallari enjoyed spring break with her children. Rachel Zoe shared a sweet selfie with her two sons.

One of the more random photos from this week was of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia Mclaughlin and Zac Efron- which was for her magazine, of course.

Check out all of those photos and more in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Growing Up Jersey

Throughout the years, Melissa Gorga has tried out a few different careers for story lines on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She has tried singing (an interest that I want her to revive next season), running a fashion boutique, owning an Italian restaurant, and  just like most Housewives she “wrote” wrote a book.

According to reports, Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga had yet another career in mind and it also involves reality television.
