Stassi Schroeder‘s latest podcast covers issues far and wide in the realms of reality TV – from how villains save reality TV, to Real Housewives, to how The Bachelor has changed. But the Vanderpump Rules star also discusses her dream funeral, high-stakes Instagram negotiation, and why she’s obsessed with Asian women.
Below are some of the highlights (I use that term loosely). Stassi’s guest is her friend, comedian Annabelle DeSisto. Honestly, almost every topic on the show came back to death of some sort, which is strange.
Happy Monday! It’s a short work week for many of you, so there’s something to be a little happy about on this Monday morning, right? To get you through the day we have a new photo roundup of our favorite reality stars out and about this weekend. Above: Lisa Vanderpump and Joyce Giraud took her boys (and Ken and Giggy) to the premiere event of ‘Odysseo By Cavalia’ this weekend. Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Shannon Beador and her family were spotted there, too!

I was wondering what happened to former Real Housewives of New York cast member Alex McCord. It seems like she just disappeared once she left the show and moved to Australia with her husband Simon van Kempen. This is pretty rare since most of the former Housewives do whatever they can to be in the media spotlight.
Well, Alex came out of the woodwork recently and she did so in a major way when she called out most of her former cast mates.
Real Housewives casting director Melissa Stanforth said there’s no shortage of “socialites” and “wannabes” who want to be on Real Housewives, but she shared, she typically finds “new blood” via her professional sports and high-end real estate connections.
Melissa said she asks potentials, “What’s off the table?,” to gauge if reality TV would be a good fit. “[If they] say, ‘This, this, this, and that,’ I say, ‘You shouldn’t be on reality TV.'” Every once in a while, however, a perfect Real Housewives candidate just falls into their laps.
If you have ever wondered what happened to your favorite couples, or the biggest train wreck couples, from Couples Therapy, then I have good news for you! VH1 recently announced that a Couples Therapy reunion is in the works!
“Couples Therapy is taping a special 5-season All-Star Reunion, featuring appearances by some of the most memorable couples from the entire history of the series LIVE onstage before a studio audience,” revealed VH1. “Dr. Jenn Berman will serve as host and moderator for this hi-octane reunion, showing highlights of all the most memorable moments from the series and finding out what has happened with everyone since their experience in Couples Therapy. It will be explosive, entertaining, and a night to remember!”
“She’s begging for attention right now,” Tamra quipped. “If you do fit into your 4-year-old’s clothes, don’t talk about it! Just go eat!” True words, but seriously – Tamra calling anyone out for begging for attention. My head hurts. Can’t comprehend. So much irony.
On Sunday, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin hosted the Second Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her home in Southampton. The event raised money for the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.
When asked why she organizes the event, Jill shared, “It’s a very complicated event in the sense that there’s no one reason that I do it. I do it because I want to give stuff to my friends, I do it because I want to raise awareness for charity, and I do it because I want to have a good time.” I will volunteer as tribute if Jill wants to give me free stuff. 😉 Check out more pictures below.
