Above: former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino shared, “Feeling very patriotic today. I love America. I love our freedom. I love our military who protect us every day. I love red, white, and blue! (I I luv this $60 swimsuit!) Happy 4th everyone! Be safe! #godblessAmerica #happy4thofjuly”
This weekend the reality stars flocked to New Orleans for the 2017 ESSENCE Festival. Among the reality celebrities photographed there: Kenya Moore (marriage looks good on her), Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and others. Rumor has it that Matt Jordan even made an appearance, which is interesting since Kenya has a restraining order against him!
Yandy Smith was also in New Orleans, to attend the screening of the new movie Girls Trip.
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted at LAX while sister Kendall Jenner was in Paris with Bella Hadid.
After the best season ever of Real Housewives of New York, this current one is not living up to last year’s glory – other than Dorinda Medley who comes through in every single episode. She went off on Sonja Morgan during that “gangster lunch” in the Bronx and gave this season some much needed life. I had no idea what she was talking about when she kept saying “clip” over and over again, but she clarified on Watch What Happens Live.
Fredrik Eklund was also in the club house for a perfect crossover of New York Bravo shows – especially since he and Bethenny Frankel have their own real estate show in the works.
Kenya Moore stepped out for the first time since her surprise wedding to Marc Daly. She hit up the Bossip on WEtv event and flashed her wedding ring on the red carpet – see the close-up pics in the gallery. Her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars, Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey were also at the event, along with Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Tiny Harris, Rasheeda and more!
How is Snooki not a Real Housewife of New Jersey yet? It would make so much sense. She would bring some much-needed entertainment value to the show. Plus, she’s already friends with Melissa Gorga. Unfortunately, I have no say in the casting process of this show, but I did get a sneak peak of how great this idea is when Nicole and Melissa both posted photos hanging with each other’s families at the beach.
Nicole Polizzi would be adorable and hilarious as a housewife – at least in my opinion. And I feel like she would get Melissa into some fun/funny situations outside of feuding with Kim D over their rival clothing stores. Unfortunately, the upcoming RHONJ season has already been filmed and my girl Snooki is not a part of the cast, but just think about what could have been: an iconic reality TV crossover opportunity.
