VANDERPUMP RULES -- Season:5 -- Pictured: Lisa Vanderpump -- (Photo by: Tommy Garcia/Bravo)

Lisa Vanderpump is one of a handful of Bravo Housewives who has staying power in this sometimes precarious industry. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star recently shared her feelings on what it means to be a reality ‘star,’ including how she initially got into the world of warring Housewives, and how she has navigated its rocky waters since.

Part of Lisa’s appeal is her depth. Lisa is not merely a “housewife” who cameras follow around for dramatic purposes; she’s also a long time business woman, brand builder, and activist for animal rights and the LGBT community. The restaurateur and humanitarian seems to understand something that many of the other Bravo Housewives (96 in total since the franchise’s inception ten years ago) often do not: Audiences stick with the person, not the persona.

Below Deck Season 4

Below Deck Mediterranean hit the airwaves this past summer, presenting another look at the Below Deck franchise in other waters. Kate Chastain, the awesomely snarky chief stew on Below Deck’s original series, gave Bravo her take on the Med spinoff and its season one cast members. Her basic assessment: They were great! Oh, except for Bryan Kattenburg. Yeah, he still sucks.

Kate especially loved seeing friend and coworker Ben Robinson star in the crossover series, especially enjoying his prowess with the ladies. She jokes, “I was just talking to Ben two days ago and said, ‘You know, [the] next season you do, you need to go for [hooking up with] three cast members in one season – like the Ben Grand Slam.”

NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 21: Teresa Giudice visits

After their explosive trip to Vermont, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita are most definitely on the outs again. Ah, well. It was a fun three (four?) weeks while it lasted! Teresa sat down with Bravo recently to discuss how she currently feels about her former bestie, and how The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion will reveal even more intense fallout between the ladies.

After Jacqueline called Teresa the “C” word at their last dinner in Vermont together, Teresa says she doesn’t even recognize her old friend. “She’s just not the Jacqueline that I know. The Jacqueline I know didn’t act that way.”

Trevor-Walker-Head-On-Hand-Below-Deck

It’s safe to say that Trevor Walker getting a plane ticket home on this week’s Below Deck was foreseen by all. Well, except maybe Trevor himself! The SENIOR deckhand – recently demoted to regular old deckhand just before his much deserved firing – spoke with Bravo recently about his short, yet insanely offensive stint on the show this season.

Does Trevor have any regrets about his behavior, especially about the hideous final moments that led up to his firing? Not really. He claims, “I don’t have many regrets other than possibly having a bit too much to drink.” Thus, we can assume Trevor has learned zilch, zero, nada after viewing his drunken rants televised. Interesting.

Melissa Gorga

While some Housewives fly off to Morocco or Dubai, The Real Housewives Of New Jersey need only ride a stank party bus as far as Vermont to rage on each other’s a$$es…for multiple episodes. Melissa Gorga sounds off in her blog this week about Jacqueline Laurita’s messy behavior on the cast trip, including her suspicious dalliances with Kim DePaola, who accused Melissa‘s employee of shading Teresa Guidice.

Calling the trip neither fun nor drama-free, Melissa accuses Jacqueline of ruining it straight outta the gate! “I’ve said it before and it’s becoming more apparent that Jacqueline is WAAAY too invested in everyone else’s business,” she says. “She wants us all to believe her meddling ‘comes from a good place,’ but honestly, good for who?”
