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.
Changes are in the salty, sparkly Beverly Hills air – Eileen Davidson is out (and it doesn’t even look like she makes a cameo?), and it’s confirmed that Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is stepping into Eileen’s tall blonde heels. The fitness coach and married mom of 2 is also the daughter of John Mellencamp, and is not at all shy about flexing her guns!
In comparison to seasons past, this season of Real Housewives of New Jerseyhas been a breeze for Melissa Gorga. She has just enough drama to get screen time, but she’s really not in the thick of it. Plus she gets to promote her store Envy at every possible second. She really is in the best spot out of all the Jersey ladies at this point.
This is a stark contrast from the woman who joined the show in the middle of a feud with Teresa Giudice after Danielle Staub infamously brought up the family drama during the Season 2 reunion. Apparently Danielle and Melissa were talking about their (former) shared enemy years ago, but apparently they only met this season.
This was a brutal season for Shannon Beador, but she seems to be taking it all in stride and owning her shit. She announced that she and David Beadorhave separated. She has admitted to projecting her feelings on the other women in the cast. She has apologized for blaming her weight gain on stress from Vicki Gunvalson.
Now she seems like she is ready for a fresh start and that new beginning might include a friendship with former enemy Kelly Dodd.
After the last Real Housewives of Atlanta season was centered around Kandi Burruss, this current one seems like a breeze for her two episodes in. That’s probably because most of Kandi’s drama is playing out on the docuseries with her girl group Xscape. The tension between Kandi and these ladies rivals the tension between Kandi and Porsha Williams on RHOA.
There seems to be a lot of love there, but there are issues over the past and the present that the ladies still don’t seem to agree on. So of course Andy Cohen was stirring up the pot when Kandi and the rest of the group stopped by the Bravo clubhouse to tape a Watch What Happens Live episode.
Lisa Vanderpump shared on Instagram about the gala: “Still reeling from our @VanderpumpDogs Gala. What an incredibly meaningful and memorable night, where friends, family and activists came together with one goal- to create a better world for dogs.”
