It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.
Even though the name of the franchise is called Real Housewives, most of the women on Real Housewives of New York are actually single. After boasting about her happy marriage for years, Ramona Singer got divorced after finding out that her husband cheated on her through the press.
Since then Ramona has bragged about her many dates, but she hasn’t really shared much of her love life on RHONY, but she does seem open to dating on a different reality TV show.
After a tumultuous minute and a half on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Eden Sassoon is done with the Housewife life. It’s probably for the best since it seemed like a brutal experience for her. Plus, now she can keep it real and shit talk everyone who she thinks has wronged her from the cast. And Eden has a lot to say about everyone.
What were the reality celebs up to this week? Running errands, officiating at Pride Festivals and so much more! First up, Lisa Vanderpump had a busy weekend. On Saturday she attended the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles’ 6th Annual Voice Awards and then on Sunday, she was the Celebrity Grand Marshall (along with Ken) at the Long Beach Lesbian And Gay Pride Festival at Marina Green Park in Long Beach, California. Can you stand how cute that dog is?! Complete with an LVP bumpit!
New Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay was doing some press for the show and wound up giving away a major spoiler about her season! Oops.
It seemed all good in the hood when former Bacheloretteleads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.
The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTSwas Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.
Several reality TV stars whooped it up in Connecticut over the weekend to help casino/resort Mohegan Sun celebrate its 20th anniversary. Obviously, no whoop it up is the real deal without Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson.
They sound a little bitter to me. After all, the trend for this franchise has been to pick the star for the next season from last season’s pool of contestants, which includes both Chad and Robby. Not to mention that Luke Pell has been doing a press tour of complaints after he was rudely shafted from the role at the last minute. With so many differing opinions about Nick, I have a feeling that a lot of people will be watching The Bachelor next season.
