E!’s summer reality TV lineup thankfully doesn’t include a Kardashian spinoff -unless you count the widely anticipated docu-series about Bruce Jenner and his transition to living as a woman. But that’s not all E! is giving us this summer -there’s also more Botched to look forward to as well as a whole host of new shows so you can escape from the heat.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Eileen Davidson, Britney Haynes, and Kim Zolciak, are showing off their latest adorable family photos on social media this week. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest photos.
Jax Taylor went back under the knife to pretty up the nose he got fixed last year! Just as Vanderpump Rules started filming it’s fourth season (which will definitely not include Stassi Schroeder), Jax advertised his newest nose job on instagram.
The reality star and former male maaawwwwwddddle previously shared 3 photos immediately after surgery, a few days later, and then yesterday almost healed, but mysteriously Jax deleted the first two snaps – not enough pretty for the former Vogue boy?
“So today wasn’t a fun day for me but I love my guys @plastixdocs in Beverly Hills,” Jax said the day of his nose job.
So do the Real Housewives really look as glamorous off-camera as they do on Bravo? The stars of Real Housewives Of New York and Real Housewives Of Orange County dish on what they’ve learned since the cameras started rolling, how TV has affected their looks, and if they’re really as glam when they’re not on Bravo!
All the women admit they’re more casual in real life than they are in reality TV life, usually wearing jeans and shirts or workout gear instead of satin cocktail dresses and Louboutins. Bethenny Frankel confesses to being “braless in pajamas” when she drops off her daughter Bryn at school. “Honestly, that’s where the photographers really should be, because it’s scary. It’s a disaster,” she jokes. Hopefully Bethenny is actually wearing her own PJs and not her daughter’s…
After seeing Bethenny Frankel dive headlong into her past on this week’s Real Housewives of New York, she wants to remind us all that she’s not living in it anymore. In her Bravo blog, Bethenny assures viewers that “I, genuinely, am not angry.” But before she rehashes the tense (dare we say, angry?) conversation with her estranged stepfather on the episode, she addresses Kristen Taekman’s accusation that Bethenny isn’t spending enough time with the ladies due to her “childcare issues.”
Bethenny says, “Overall, there is a conversation about time spent with children. Pretty may be smarter than I think but not quite smart enough to realize that I’m going through a divorce, and my precious moments are divided.” Ooh, burn! She adds, “My balance as a mother and business person is knowing that I spend every moment possible with my daughter. The one thing that is said universally is that it goes by so quickly. I may have made some money, but I am not ‘nannied’ up, and I don’t go out with girlfriends when I can be with my child. ‘Child care’ doesn’t get me more time with my angel. As I said about the conversation withLuann [de Lesseps], this is the easiest decision I will ever have to make.”
On last night’s Little Women: NY we begin with the entire group, sans Jordanna James, meeting to hear Jazmin Lang’strip idea: Puerto Rico! Jazmin’s mother is Puerto Rican and she wants to take everyone to her “home” so they can relax and bond again. Jordanna is invited even though she and Jason Perez are at odds. The group is assembled the next day with rolling bags as big as they are, but they’re troopers and hustle their way into cabs and to the airport. Lila Callsays traveling abroad can be tough for a little person, but she just plans to bat her eyelashes to get a little help.
The group arrives safe & sounds at their hotel in PR. Jazmin climbs up on her suitcase to reach the check-in desk and, again, props to all of them for getting themselves into their rooms with all the schlepping and struggling of travel! Dawn Lang is still burning up about Misty Irwin and Kristin Zettlemoyerdissing her “big event” last weekend (i.e.: her brokedown charity auction), so she plans to confront them at dinner. In another room, Jordanna is complaining to Kristin about Jason’s ridiculous behavior at Dawn’s event in throwing Jordanna publicly under the bus. For her part, Kristin is not feeling Dawn lately and tells Jordanna that she’s ready to snap if Dawn rubs her the wrong way on this trip. So, bring on the dinner confrontation!
Reza opened up about calling off the wedding on the Shahs of Sunset after show. “It was weird. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but at the same time it was the right decision for me. I come from a broken home and I have a lot of reservations about getting married,” he admitted. “When I get married, I want to make sure there are no issues on the table and it’s for keeps.”
Adam had “no idea” Reza was going to call off their wedding in Thailand. “He literally thought we were getting married… like, we have plane tickets, we booked a hotel, we’re going overseas, we got a marriage license, we’re getting married,” said Reza. “It was not an option he thought was on the table. He was blind sided.” Why does Adam stay with Reza? (crickets) Anyone??
As lamp fixtures do, Kristen Taekman sometimes decorates the room a bit, but doesn’t add much to the conversation. Commenting in her Bravo blog on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York, Kristen remarks on everything from Bethenny Frankel’s therapy to Luann de Lesseps’ daughter’s artwork. Oh! And she does have some words for the sparse scenes she was physically present in as well.
“I would like to start out by saying how amazing Ramona [Singer’s] friends are,” begins Kristen, “I know that Bethenny was saying that she didn’t have much in common with any of these women. At first glance neither did I, but in the end we had Ramona in common and sometimes just having a mutual friend in common is enough.” Kristen goes on to defend the entire Upper East Side (those poor unfortunate souls!) claiming, “they are all very lovely, giving, beautiful, supportive women. Many of them are very successful in their own right. During the event, many of them stood up and spoke about their friendships with Ramona.” Kristen is not a fan of Sonja Morgan’s New Age friend, however: “Sonja and the Swami Priestess!? UGH! That Yogi friend of hers gets on my nerves!”
