Talk about a blast from reality TV past! Some long-forgotten reality stars turned out this weekend for WE tv’s “Evolution Of The Relationship Reality Show.”
Remember “Joe Millionaire“ from way back in 2003? The show where the guy (Evan Marriott) pretended to be a millionaire and then revealed at the very end that he wasn’t? And if they still wanted to get together, they could split a million bucks? Yeah, he showed up! Evan was one of the few reality stars who escaped and returned to normal life! He attended the event and shared that he went back to being a contractor and lives a regular low-key life nowadays.
Also giving us some reality TV flashbacks was Darva Conger! Name sound familiar? She was the blonde who appeared on “Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire” with Rick Rockwell. She married him but then had it annulled very shortly after, claiming “misrepresentation.”
Andy starts right out by sharing that Bethenny is coming back to the show at a time in her life when she’s suffering from two huge failures – of her marriage and her talk show. Ouch. She says “Yes. I don’t really view them as failures. I don’t think of them that way. I don’t think of them as successes, don’t get it twisted, but I don’t think of them that way. I think of them as experiences. And I really can’t compare the two, they’re very different experiences.”
The Kardashain/Jenner family is known for living their entire lives in front of the E!’s cameras for their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and when they aren’t being filmed, they are supplementing their need for attention with a constant barrage of Instagram posts. I’d say Kim Kardashian is the worst offender of the bunch, but perhaps she’s just trying to make up for brother Rob’s absence on social media. She may want to rethink that…
Rob, the only male offspring of Kris Jenner, used to be a fixture in the reality realm like his sisters. He relished in his friendships with Lamar Odom and Scott Disick, and he was especially close to sister Khloe. However, after gaining a lot of weight and rumors of addiction, Rob decided to take a hiatus from reality and his family. He was notoriously absent from Kim’s over-the-top wedding to Kanye West, and she has been less than supportive of his struggles.
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.
Alicia DiMichele took a break from Mob Wives to deal with her federal indictment situation for embezzlement. In her absence, however, the ladies spent plenty of time discussing her on the insane and vitriolic reunion. Alicia discusses her feelings on Karen Gravano, her friendships, and if she’d return to reality TV.
Alicia has watched “only bits and pieces” of this season, but she isn’t shocked things got so negative because “nothing that happens on that show would surprise me.” Away from reality TV, Alicia been focusing on her sons while their father serves his 7-year in prison sentence, and she has made the “choice” to be more positive by looking “forward and not backward.”
