Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared some intriguing snapshots in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup. Some of the stars were still on vacation following the winter holidays. Others got back to their “normal” lives which could be considered a luxurious vacation for most of us normal folk- which of course made for some jealousy-inducing Instagram posts.
I still don’t quite get why William Shatner has so much animosity toward Nick Viall, but apparently he is a very avid viewer of the Bachelorfranchise- which is something I understand. Still, I think he might have me beat when it comes to investing in a reality TV show. William was really going in with his Twitter campaign to get Nick booted from Dancing With the Stars.
He encouraged the fans to vote for “anybody but Nick” in a pretty excessive manner. And I’m pretty sure it was all based on what he watched from Nick’s appearances on reality TV- not anything that actually went down between the two of them. The whole thing just seemed very off-base and out of nowhere to me.
I had no idea that William Shatner has such strong opinions about The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars, but I cannot stop laughing. William has been adamantly campaigning to get Nick Viall booted from the ballroom in a series of impassioned tweets. I feel like I have finally identified the one person who takes reality TV more seriously than I do.
Sure, I feel bad for Nick, but Shatner’s devotion to both of these shows is just entertainment to me. He went on and on an on and on trying to rally support to vote for every contestant other than Nick.
Who is Erika‘s competition? Well, she has her work cut out for her, as she’s up against gymnast Simone Biles, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, Glee (um, hello, dancing!) star Heather Morris, and figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Just to name a few. Check out the full cast list below and let us know if you’ll watch.
It seemed all good in the hood when former Bacheloretteleads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.
The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTSwas Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.
I have to admit that I am a part of Bachelor Nation. I watch The Bachelor and all of its spin-offs. I’m even contemplating trying out for the next season. Needless to say, I am pretty invested in the franchise. But I have to keep it real and tell you that I could not get into the “Happily Ever After” spin-off show with Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell.
Don’t get me wrong I love Ben, but I just can’t see this show getting a second season.
