Summer is coming to an end (though you wouldn’t know it with this week’s heat wave!) and for many parents and kids that means school is back in session. Back to school is this work-from-home mama’s favorite time of the year. I kid… but I do have an unhealthy obsession with school supplies and I welcome some peace and quiet after a rowdy summer.
Like most parents, the reality TV stars document their kid/s first day of school with pictures (lots and lots of pictures). Because we know y’all love pictures of the kiddos, we rounded up some of the back to school photos that have been shared thus far. The Little Couple star Jen Arnold shared the above picture of Will and Zoey, adding, “It’s that time of year! Happy Back To School!”
Now that Kristen Doute has split from post-adolescent boyfriend James Kennedy, she’s moved on to seafaring men! Kristen has reportedly sunk her clutches into former Below Deck star Aleks Taldykin.
Aleks appeared on season 1 of Below Deck as Captain Lee‘s First Officer. He left the show to focus on his own yachting career and currently owns a yachting company which specializes in upscale international charters. In between voyages he apparently started seeing Kristen. Being at sea makes a man lonely and desperate, I suppose…
After being kind of, well, uncool at the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Luann de Lesseps is trying to snatch her Cool Countess Crown back by going the “it’s all good!” route in her latest assessment of season 7’s wrap. “Never before have I left a season feeling so good about my friendships with the other ladies,” says Luann of the reunion. “Life is too short to hold a grudge, and I’m glad that I leave this season in a good place with most of the girls. We showed everyone that it is possible for women to hold each other up rather than tear each other down, and we all went out to dinner after and toasted to a great season.”
Getting a dig and a compliment to work together seamlessly in a single delivery is the Countess’s specialty, so her assessment of Sonja Morgan follows suit. “I don’t know if Madonna actually made it to Sonja’s fashion show,” jokes Luann, “but I do know that the empress definitely has clothes. She did a great job and whether or not the right buyers were there, she brought her collection to fruition. As for her saying that my clothes ‘are for the masses’ while hers ‘are for the classes,’ I’m going to take the high road and say that every woman deserves to look great, regardless of how much they have to spend, and hopefully both our collections are making women look and feel fabulous!”
Celebrity Big Brother is currently happening (featuring Farrah Abraham!), and if you’re thinking Brandi would be the ultimate houseguest, you’re not alone. Sadly, Brandi revealed she turned down a spot because she wouldn’t be allowed contact with her kids during filming. That certainly would never stop Farrah.
Dance Moms‘ most recent season may have come to a close, but the drama is far from over…at least for one cast member. And guess what? It wasn’t Abby Lee Miller causing a stir this time! Instead, one of the young cast members was the target of a stalking creeper.
Earlier this week, police were called to check out a suspicious package sent to one of the stars of Dance Moms. And it’s a good thing they were called in, because what was inside the package was definitely not a teddy bear or new dance costume, but it was pornographic in nature. Who would do such a thing?
Claudia shared the photo above, adding, “Demetria and I take South Beach! The birthday celebration for her continues!”
Claudia and Demetria were joined by friend Aisha Thalia, who made it be known that Claudia is filming a new show. “Oh and y’all thought my girl Claudia wasn’t working, huh?” she shared. “Trust me, she’s booked. Booked, booked, booked. Even has me involved with the shenanigans for her brand new project. #miccheck #micpack #filming #happygirlsdonthate #hatinggirlsainthappy”
Take a peek at Claudia and Demetria‘s pictures from Miami – and let us know what you think Claudia’s new project might be.
Sonja shared with Sara Gore and Jacque Reid of New York Live that she only said what she said aboutJosh Taekman because she thought it was a private conversation and wouldn’t be splashed on Page Six. “Egg on my face. I actually didn’t speak out, I was doing my Social Life magazine cover shoot, and there were a lot of people there from the news, covering that event, and I was talking to someone, I thought, privately. I should know better, you know, I’ve been on the show over six and a half years now, and I should know better, but anyhow…I was just saying what everyone was saying, that they weren’t surprised. But I would never get in her business like that, normally. I didn’t mean for that to happen.”
