A lot of the reality stars that you love (and love to hate- or at least love to make fun of) were very active on Instagram this week, but don’t worry about refreshing your feed. We have the most interesting photos from the past few days in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in all our years watching (and reporting on) reality TV is that these people need a lot of therapy! Thank goodness some genius figured out how to kill two birds with one stone by inventing reality television therapy. That way these ‘stars’ can indulge in both their addiction to extending their 15 minutes, and potentially seeking some much-needed help. Do I have Dr. Drew to thank for this?
It’s been a crazy week in reality TV and especially for the Teen Mom OG stars! Pregnancy and pink slips abound! Fans who were looking forward to the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG are going to be a little disappointed to hear that Farrah Abraham has been fired from the show! She took to Instagram to blast Viacom for firing her, claiming that they had no problem with her adult entertainment lifestyle before but suddenly want to shame her for it.
She started off her Instagram rant (we’ve left it unedited, because..well, Farrah). “Even though #Viacom fired me today they couldn’t help but to exploit myself & my daughter for their promotional gain- Viacom let me go because as a Business Mogul I act like an adult and part take in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private !”
I haven’t seen the viewer numbers for last night’s MTV VMAs yet, but I wonder if it’s down by a lot compared to last year, since some genius decided to put it on the same night as the Game of Thrones season finale! Because of that, I skipped the VMAs for the first time in years, but priorities. Game of Thrones even trumped reality TV viewing last night. #sorrynotsorry
Anywhoodle. Here’s a few snaps of the few reality stars who showed up for the big night in L.A. Mostly Teen Mom stars, like Jenelle Evans, Gary Shirley, Leah Messer, Amber Portwood (and her new guy) and Farrah Abraham, who brought along daughter Sophia. Check out the photos below (including Nev Schulman, Christina Milian and more) and tell us which you look you like the best.
Did you watch the show last night? Did I miss anything good?
Brandi begins by gushing that Amber is a “gangsta!” and marvels that she’s been on TV for a decade yet still stays “relatable.” Amber takes issues with the word relatable, because most people do not have a “telescope” on their deeply personal issues. Amber explains that she spends so much time filming ‘on the couch’ because, “I don’t feel comfortable going out into a public place and talking about … cause in my life some issues I feel are very personal. For other people to just be listening or eavesdropping, it makes me uncomfortable and I’ll shut myself [down]. I want to be truthful.”
Amber Portwood is finally thinking with her brain and not, uhh, her desire for a TV wedding. The Teen Mom OG star has decided to call off her wedding to many-times-over deadbeat dad Matt Baier.
I think we can all rejoice in this good decision. Although, before we get too cocky, Amber and Matt are still very much together to milk this drama for the new season, but after recent information surfaced, Amber’s not ready to make a lifelong commitment just yet.
