When will reality stars learn? Alright, I realize the answer is "never," but throw me a bone, people! We have seen enough fame whores dying to have Bravo cameras following them around, but they don't give a second thought to the fact that the fleeting fifteen minutes will undoubtedly unleash all of the skeletons in their closets.
"That will never happen to me," they all say. Clearly these folks have heard of the Giudices, right? The public is always going to find out your business if you put it on television! Not shockingly, the newest reality stars to fall victim to this truth will be a new couple on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County.
Alexis Bellino loves a princess theme. Last year twin daughters Melania and Mackenna got a Princess Puppy Bonanza and this year, since they're growing up, they got a princess spa party. Cause yeah six-year-olds so need a spa day….
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star posted a ton of photos of the girls celebrating on instagram – the party included a fashion show, manicures, makeovers and princess paraphernalia, of course! It also featured Alexis in appropriate clothing – which means no Alexis Hoeture was deployed for this family-friendly event. #ThankYouJesus
You know the best part about seeing reality stars' kids: realizing what their original faces looked like! Below are some adorable photos of Alexis' kiddos. And remember be nice to the kids in the comments!
Actually Gretchen and fiance Slade Smiley were trying to score their own show and maybe they were successful. Apparently they're filming for a new show called Marriage Bootcamp, which is a Bridezillas spinoff (why do I think Slave will be the Bridezilla?). The show is NOT a Bravo show and when asked about Gretchen's involvement a cameraman said it was definitely not a Bravo show and Gretchen was involved but not the star!
I'm not going to lie. Sometimes (no, all the time) the amount of over-sharing people do on the Internet makes me slightly uncomfortable. I have certainly been guilty of it, but I try to keep updates about my appointments at the lady doctor, weird rashes, and sexy times (bwhahaha! Like I have them) out of my Twitter and Facebook feeds.
Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin does not seem to follow this philosophy, and that's okay. It just kind of creeps me out a bit. She and husband Doug want to expand their family of four, and I know about it thanks to Twitter.
Well Vicki Gunvalson's latest court shenanigans should make for interesting TV!
TheReal Housewives of Orange County star was sued, un-sued, and then re-sued by her Vicki's Vodka partner Robert Williamson III. In response Vicki is not backing down from the man Brooks Ayersattempted to blackmail (and kill?) – allegedly – and is demanding a federal jury trial to determine who is responsible for the collapse of the partnership. Um…
Vicki claims she naively believed Robert was a competent business partner and that she was too trusting of his motives and behaviors. “Mr. Nicholson (Vicki's other partner) and Ms. Gunvalson believed everything Mr. Williamson said about his ability to help capitalize the business and distribute the vodka.”
We all know that most women claw their way into a franchise and will do anything to stay there. Of course, sometimes even ridiculous feuds and story lines don't work, do they Gretchen Rossi? It's refreshing to see a housewife realize that the show isn't a be-all, end-all. Lydia didn't like the negativity and drama, so she peaced out…but she's got a great suggestion of someone to take her place!
As Tamra Barney,Heather Dubrow and Vicki Gunvalson headed off to Hawaii to film season nine of the reality series, Lydia stayed behind by choice. The now-former reality star confirmed her departure. "I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with — it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."
