Doug and Lydia McLaughlin Christmas

Oh Lydia McLaughlin how we miss you… let us count the ways

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.

Jenelle Evans Christmas

While I highly doubt Jenelle Evans will win Reality Tea’s favorite Teen Mom 2 star poll, I have to give credit where credit is due. Jenelle appears to be happy and healthy since the birth of her second son, Kaiser, and seems to be well on her way of regaining custody of Jace.

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.

Some reality TV stars were caught doing good deeds this week as they readied for Christmas.  Others were spotted doing some last minute gift shopping. And others hit the red carpet for pre-holiday events. 

Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin and their daughters attend the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Event for skid row homeless at the Los Angeles Mission.

Third time dad Scott Disick and his little almost-sister-in-law Kendall Jenner did a little last minute shopping on Rodeo Drive. 

Former reality star Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict attend the NY premiere of Selma while JWoww, Big Ang and Natalie Guercio stopped off to visit the Sirius XM radio studios. 

Below you’ll also find Kim Kardashian, Porsha Williams and more!

It seems the saga of Real Housewives of Beverly HillsKim Richards and her pitbull Kingsley isn’t over yet.  Kyle Schwab of Smashface Rescue shared on Facebook this week that he tried hard to help Kim with her dangerous dog, but she’s gone radio silence, even on the money she owes him.  

When a commenter asked Kyle (Schwab, not Richards..just for clarification) this week if he was ever able to help Kingsley, he shared that despite trying his hardest, it was a futile effort.  “Kingsley never showed up the next Wed morning after I worked with him and made room. I believe I was his only hope. Even though he tried to kill me. I thought he was workable and was going to do a joint custody thing where he was with me during filming for the safety of the staff and crew.  And or I would maintain him on set (off camera) during filming days.”

Reality TV is usually known for its TERRIBLE fashions, but once in a while a gal (or guy) gets it right. Rarely, but hey – it happens. Lord knows this list was a struggle, I had to really search and search – wrack my memory, so to speak – to find the good looks.

Reality TV stars have launched fashion lines (and jewelry lines and hair weave lines and shoe collections and handbag lines – enough lines that a girl needs a drink), bragged about their stylists, they’ve walked in fashion runways, and they’ve attended fashion shows, and they’ve posed in fashion campaigns (or on the cover of Vogue), and in some cases their spawn have become super models, but that certainly does not mean they’ve any fashion sense of their own

However, after careful consideration, lots of overlooking, and focusing on the positives here’s my pick for best dressed reality TV stars of 2014. Many people are on this list because of progress made – even if it’s merely outfit to outfit progress, but remember we’re thinking positively. <side eye>

Enjoy!
