Summer technically beings three weeks from today, but Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer for many. For me, it begins to feel like summer after my daughter’s annual dance recital, which usually leads into my kids’ last week of school. They are going to be bouncing off the walls. If you need me, I will be hiding in a corner with a bottle of wine. I’m kidding. 😉 Maybe.
I am shocked to see Scott Stapp‘s name on the list so soon after his psychotic break and subsequent diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I wish nothing but the best for Scott and Jaclyn but I personally don’t think a reality show (at least not this show with this doctor) is a healthy environment for him right now.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Palms Pool tweeted, “Happy Birthday to Farrah Abraham! All eyes are on the sexy #TeenMomOG as she celebrates poolside at #DitchFridays!” Among those eyes were Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D, Pawn Stars’ Chumlee, and Dating Naked‘s Mikey P. Check out the photos from Farrah’s birthday party below.
Kendra, who never met a reality TV show she did not like, and Hank are the only marriage couple in the cast. “We needed the help and we really needed to focus on what our real issues were and what we need to do to solve them,” saidKendra, on why she and Hankjoined that cast in the midst of Hank’s cheating scandal. “We went in fighting each other, we went out fighting the world. That is where we remain right now.” See the season 3 premiere party pictures below!
It’s a baby girl for Maci Bookout and Taylor McKinney! The Teen Mom OG couple welcomed their daughter, Jayde Carter, yesterday afternoon. Maci announced the news via Twitter and shared that Jayde weighed 7 lbs, 15 oz.
Jayde joins big brother Bentley, Maci‘s son with Ryan Edwards. “I am calling her my miracle baby,” Maci said in December about her unexpected second pregnancy. “This time I’m able to be excited. I’m older and able to give my baby the stability of the relationship that Taylor and I have.”
She’s bringing Uptown a whole new Smackdown! In her Bravo blog, Dorinda Medley gives us her take on this week’s Real Housewives of New York, covering the gamut of poor housewifery dinner behavior, not-so-sneaky Kmart digs, and awkward therapy sessions. Dorinda begins by revisiting the dinner conversation she had with Ramona Singer about divorce: “Fireplace and vodka…that cures everything. I knew we needed a little drink to warm up to the divorce chat. And like I’ve always said about divorce, it’s a process. There is no one meeting or one decision and certainly not one conclusion. It’s the dismantling of a long, loving relationship that involves many years and a beautiful child, so it has to be handled with caution, respect, and grace…if possible.” She adds that “Ramona seems to be on track, her confidence is booming, and she seems ready for the next step. The fact that Mario and Avery are even speaking, let alone are on good terms, makes me so incredibly happy. Avery’s a great girl, and quite frankly, Mario’s always been a great father. What happens with Ramona and Mario does not and should not ever change that fact.”
When it comes her very polarizing main squeeze, John, Dorinda says she knew bringing him up at dinner with Ramona would “get a reaction out of her,” but as “Bethenny [Frankel] has said before, ‘The heart wants what the hearts wants,’ and I want John, so guess what folks—I get to have John. He makes me happy, simple as that.” But it’s not all praise for Bethenny as Dorinda snipes, “Oh! That therapy scene with Bethenny…how exhausting, right? I feel like we’ve been living that confrontation with her stepfather for the past month. I mean, therapy can be exhausting, sure, but enough already! That damn can of worms just needs to be avoided at this point.” Although she calls Bethenny “brave” for exposing her vulnerability in front of the cameras, Dorinda admits, “It’s made me tense watching it all unfold, and I so wanted to just make it go away.”
