Real Housewives of New Jersey

Erika Jayne and RuPaul

No one had a better rookie season than Erika Girardi – well, accept for maybe her pop star alter ego, Erika Jayne. Erika won over the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers with her catsuits, catchphrases, and dance moves.

Two seasons later, Erika left her time as a neutral party behind. She fought with then-rookie Dorit Kemsley for most of her second season. And now Erika is at odds with season’s new girl Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Is this an unfortunate pattern or merely a coincidence? Erika opened up about that and more during the last episode of Watch What Happens Live.

I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.

Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.

Caroline & Al Manzo Vacation In Paris & London

Even though there has been some recent chatter about Caroline Manzo returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn’t look that is happening- at least as of this moment. I would love to see her back in the fold going at it with her foes, but she just seems so much happier these days since she has nothing to do with this drama.

Caroline and her husband Al Manzo went on a romantic trip to London and Paris. That sounds a lot better than arguing with people at a Posche Fashion show or an opening for a faux restaurant.

Instagram Roundup

With the Season 10 premiere of Real Housewives of New York on its way, expect more photos from the show’s stars on social media, just in time to get us all hyped up.

Tinsley Mortimer shared a photo with (most of) the cast by the water. Ramona Singer celebrated a friend’s bachelorette party. Dorinda Medley posted a selfie for her followers to enjoy. Sonja Morgan supported Luann de Lesseps’ healthy lifestyle change at a holistic health center. Is it April 4 yet? I need the Season 10 premiere and I need it now. Thankfully the stars are all posting on Instagram to satiate my need for RHONY content.

Andy Cohen

Is a  Real Housewives of Beverly Hills comeback in the works for Brandi Glanville? This sure seems like a possibility. Andy Cohen recently appeared in a video message for Brandi when she was on Celebrity Big Brother. Soon after, Brandi appeared as a guest on Watch What Happens Live.

So it seems like she is still cool with Andy and the Bravo network, but what about the Beverly Hills cast? And that is the obstacle Brandi needs to overcome if she does want to reclaim her diamond. Andy is on board with Brandi’s return, but there’s something she needs to accomplish for that to happen.

There are few things better than a Real Housewives crossover. It’s always interesting to have more than one Real Housewife in the same room, but it’s even more exciting to have cast members from different shows in one place. These moments make for the best Instagram posts.

Erika Girardi (or maybe it was her alter ego Erika Jayne), Melissa Gorga, and Kenya Moore channeled fifties Housewives with some high buns, conservative dresses, aprons, and white heels to film a promotional spot for A Wrinkle In Time.

Tamra Judge met up with the newest Beverly Hills Housewife Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and her husband Edwin Arroyave.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Season 9 Starts Filming In Two Weeks

As loyal as I am (and have always been) to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I cannot help wondering where the show goes from here. Season 6 (with those twins and Amber Marchese) was the worst ever. Then they took a break in filming Season 7 since there’s no way they could have done a season of this show while Teresa Giudice was in prison. Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga made up after years of feuding during that season and turned their one-liners against Jacqueline Laurita. Other than that, the season was just OK. I was expecting so much more after waiting forever and a half for it, but I obviously watched every single episode (many times over).

Jacqueline was out for Season 8 and we watched Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs go at it for most of the season. Conversely, Teresa experienced her first season where she was on good terms with every cast member- including her former enemy Danielle Staub. With Siggy off the show, we are only left with some second-rate tension between Dolores Catania and “Friends of the Housewives” Danielle to sustain us. Is this the beginning of the end?

Kim DePaola Takes Girls Trip To Las Vegas- Photos

There are two starkly different ways to view Kim DePaola’s role on Real Housewives of New Jersey: she is the gift that keeps on giving or the curse that keeps on cursing. Kim always swoops in with some drama whenever the season gets boring. Going up against Kim D, guarantees that the audience is on your side. As annoying as it has to be to fight against her, the Housewives who do, ultimately win. They get the support of the audience and some catchy insults to inspire memes.

Could you imagine if Kim was actually a more integral part of the season- instead of serving as the scapegoat for problems and the pot stirrer that livens up a dull season? What if Kim D was actually invited to one of the cast trips? They already storm out of every restaurant before the food even arrives. They wouldn’t be able to sit down at the table if Km was there.
