Dolores admitted that she gained over 20 pounds in between seasons and that she turned to weight loss surgery to turn things around.
Real Housewives of New Jersey
A lot of your favorite reality TV shows shared photos from their Easter and Passover celebrations with their families.
Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels enjoyed an egg hunt with her children and neighbors. Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia Abraham, Cary Deuber’s daughter Zuri, Ali Fedotowsky’s daughter Molly, and other reality TV offspring celebrated Easter by hunting for eggs.
A lot of your favorite reality stars were all about the family time this past week on Instagram. Teen Mom star Leah Messer rooting for her daughters at cheer. Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis celebrated her daughter Kensie’s 4th birthday. New York Housewife Ramona Singer hung out with her daughter Avery Singer. Luann de Lesseps saw Kinky Boots on Broadway with her kids. Tiny Harris celebrated her daughter Heiress’ birthday.
Once again, the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers were teased with the idea that OG cast member Jacqueline Laurita might return to the reality show. And once again, Jacqueline shot down the offer and shared her reasons why with the public.
It turns out the reason that the fans were hoping for a Jacqueline return is the same reason she doesn’t want to do it; i.e. she is not down for round 6473 of fighting with Teresa Giudice.
If anyone knows how to make a comeback, it’s Teresa Giudice. After spending nearly a year in prison, she has bounced back and is doing better than ever- minus that whole having a husband in prison and being a single parent while he’s locked up thing. Nevertheless, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is always hard at work so she can provide for her family.
But what about Joe Giudice? Where does he fall on the list of priorities? Last season
there was a reach for a story line speculation that Teresa might leave Joe and it didn’t help that Teresa openly admitted she hadn’t visited Joe in prison for almost eight months.
Even though the Real Housewives franchise has been going strong since 2006, there still hasn’t been a gay full-time cast member. That is so shocking for many reasons. It felt like that could have been a possibility on Real Housewives of New Jersey when Rosie Pierri was making her regular cameo appearances. Everyone loved Rosie. She brought heart and humor to the show. She even had an organic connection to the cast. Why wasn’t she promoted to a full-time cast member? That was a definite misstep.
During Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Robyn Levy and her wife made occasional appearances. We never got to know her very well, but she was close with the cast members during that time period, so why didn’t she get more screen time? All of the full-time cast members have been straight women. Erika Jayne, an avid LGBTQ advocate, thinks it is time for a change. I couldn’t agree more.
I wish the reality TV cameras were rolling when Melissa Gorga’s former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson pushed (again) for the judge to take her case against Melissa and Andy Cohen to trial – instead of settling the matter outside of court.
Jackie is upset that she looks like a “felon” after Melissa shared on Real Housewives of New Jersey that she came into her store Envy in the middle of the night and left with the merchandise. Melissa discussed this with Andy during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live and now Jackie wants $30 million from them. Where does that number even come from? That is no chump change. I wish I was privy to the reasoning behind requesting such a large sum of money.
It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morgan shared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and put on her own lip gloss.
Other reality stars shared photos hanging out with their kids like Teen Mom stars Javi Marroquin, Kail Lowry, and Leah Messer. Kristin Cavallari enjoyed spring break with her children. Rachel Zoe shared a sweet selfie with her two sons.
Check out all of those photos and more in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.
