In our Thanksgiving Eve photo roundup, we have Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Gregg Leakes and NeNe Leakes in Atlanta, supporting a Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway with NeNe and Marlo at Gio’s.

Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval and Brittany Cartwright showed their support at a “Fu** Cancer” event in L.A.

Little Women L.A. stars Terra Jole and Tonya Banks attended an Amare Magazine event at Hangar 21, as well as former RHOC star Gretchen Rossi.

Lydia McLaughlin defends her faith on RHOC reunion

So far this reunion, Lydia McLaughlin has not been her happy-go-lucky self, instead she’s been a bit snide and defensive toward her co-stars. The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Bravo blog to explain her actions and reactions.

Despite her combative attitude toward Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds, Lydia claims that she “went into the reunion optimistic.” She added, “I didn’t want to expect fighting and drama. I was hoping to talk about differences and hopefully move forward and make strides in friendships.”

Teresa Giudice Says She Gets Deep In New Book “Standing Strong” – Wants To Write Fictional Novels Next!

Even though The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is on a break this week, we can still live vicariously through their delusions and misadventures in real time! At a recent Long Island book signing for her latest memoir, Standing Strong, Teresa Giudice shared why her ghost writer’s writing has gotten a little more raw lately, how her family is doing, and what advice she has for other women out there who are going through “hard times.”

Teresa also has big plans for the future: a career as a novelist. Yup. It’s happening. The center cannot hold. Things fall apart. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…(Is this the first sign of apocalypse? Or was that when Tamra Judge found Jesus?) In any case, Teresa has plans of not doing certain things in the future as well – like signing anything Joe Giudice asks her to – ever.

Jen Howell

It’s Jen Howell‘s world and we’re all just sailing through it! Or at least that’s what the worst stewardess in Below Deck history seems to believe!

Interactions between Jen and Kate Chastain are still strained after their ‘whore – no you’re the whore’ argument from last week. Jen doesn’t care though – she’s gonna be the best stew she can be (which means the worst stew Kate has ever seen) and she has a new ally in Kyle Dixon. Or so she thinks.

Phaedra Parks becomes a model

Phaedra Parks is a woman of many trades – from lawyering to funeral director, to aerobics instructor, and now that she’s an ex-Real Housewife, she’s reinventing herself again – this time as a model!

Phaedra has gotten a revenge body since leaving Real Housewives Of Atlanta and with that even phiner booty, she’s signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models to flaunt it. “I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,'” triumphs Phaedra. “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

Peggy Sulahian Thinks Lydia McLaughlin’s Religious Beliefs Should Be Off Limits; Sad About The RHOC Divorce Announcements

Wait – was Peggy Sulahian actually at the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? Because I don’t recall her saying much, aside from a confusing explanation of how coal works atop a grill. In any case, Peggy has a lot to say about what other people said at the reunion, and she breaks it all down in her blog this week!

According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”

Margaret Josephs Thinks Danielle Staub Should Have Been A Full Time Housewife & Was Scared To Meet Kim D

There is no doubt that Margaret Josephs is a major factor on Real Housewives of New Jersey and it’s only her first season. She’s been feuding with Siggy Flicker since episode 1, her mother Marge Sr. is hysterical, and she even has a signature hairstyle. Meanwhile, some other cast members aren’t doing much aside from plugging their own businesses.

Love her or hate her, Margaret is definitely keeping things interesting on RHONJ. She is not at all shy when it comes to sharing her opinion.

Cynthia Bailey's date with Will

To say that this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta started off with a bang would be a total lie. Sure, there is a lot of talk about Kenya Moore’s surprise marriage, but everyone who follows Real Housewives in the off-season already knew about that, so it wasn’t at all shocking by the time the first episode aired.

On the bright side, Cynthia Bailey has moved out of that “Will they or won’t they get back together?” phase of her divorce and she is back in the dating pool. It isn’t the most exciting story line at this point, but I can’t help loving Cynthia and rooting for her. Even so, I can’t wait for things to intensify next episode when Kim Zolciak returns and gets in a screaming match with Kenya. THAT is something I’m really looking forward to.
