Another first.. newlywedsNicole and Jionni LaValle hosted Christmas Eve in their new home. We’ve learned to expect the unexpected from Nicole over the years, and her holiday dinner table was no exception. Um, scratch off lottery tickets, anyone? Prepare yourself for the cuteness that is Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Meilani and check out Nicole and Jenni’s pictures below.
This season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta is full of surprises for Cynthia Bailey! From her friendship with NeNe Leakes deteriorating, to Phaedra Parks marriage to Apollo Nida unraveling, to the addition of new Housewives like Demetria McKinney. Cynthia reflects on the latest episode and talks Phaedra and Apollo’s awkward moment and Demetria’s secret relationship to Roger Bobb!
“Demetria and I met a couple of years ago and have always been friendly. We have a few mutual friends and travel in some of the same social circles. We were never close until recently, so yes, I was very surprised to learn that she and Roger were dating,” Cynthia admits. “Let alone for 8 years! LOL!”
Melissa shared the photo above on Christmas Eve, adding, “Merry Christmas! The music is playing. I am cooking in the kitchen with family. Favorite night of the year!” See more shots of Melissa and Joe Gorga‘s totally natural looking photo shoot on the beach, as well as the Gorga’s holiday celebration, below. Joe, Melissa, Antonia, Gino, and Joey spent Christmas Eve with Joe’s parents.
Lydia, who was way too down to earth and classy for reality TV via Bravo, may have parted ways with the Real Housewives of Orange County, but we didn’t part ways with Lydia’s social media accounts. She is forever sharing pictures of her beautiful family – husband Doug McLaughlin, sons Stirling, Maverick, and baby Roman, and mom Judy Stirling – and we can’t get enough. Much to our delight, Lydia shared a bunch of photos of her family enjoying Christmas.
These days, the Teen Mom 2 star’s social media accounts are packed full of pictures of fun times with her family. I certainly don’t think her life is drama free – because, Jenelle – but these pics are a far cry from the looking like homeless people living in our car selfies Jenelle used to post when she was with Useless Thing 1, Kieffer Delp, and Useless Thing 2, Courtland Rogers. See pictures of Jenelle, Barbara Evans, Jace, Nathan Griffith, Kaiser, and Nathan’s little girl Emery celebrating Christmas below.
