Instagram Roundup: Luann de Lesseps, James Kennedy, Joseline Hernandez, Andi Dorfma, & More!

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?

New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?

Jill Zarin Wants To Get Back On The Real Housewives Of New York, But Bravo Isn’t Biting

Jill Zarin has been mourning the passing of her beloved husband, Bobby Zarin, after losing him to cancer last month. But the former Real Housewives Of New York cast member seems to have an ulterior motive when it comes to staying in the media spotlight: She wants to get back on the show, and she wants it badly.

A source close to Jill reports that she is upset about Bravo featuring her on the series, but not offering her a contract. “Jill’s grown tired of making cameo appearances on the show without being offered an actual job,” according to mysterious “sources.”

Instagram Roundup: Lisa Rinna, Chelsea Houska, Renee Graziano, Peter Kraus, & More!

Let’s hope that Luann de Lesseps didn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.

Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.

Danielle Staub: “I Used To Be Close With NeNe Leakes Until She Decided She Didn’t Need Me”

Original Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub made her big comeback this season after five seasons away from Bravo. She started out on the show as a friend of Jacqueline Laurita and she left the show as an enemy of Teresa Giudice’s after Teresa flipped a table on her and chased her through a country club.

Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle and Caroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker – which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.

Lea Black Talks Real Housewives, Friendship With Jeff Lewis, Skincare, And More On Pink Shade Podcast

The Real Housewives Of Miami may be in our rearview mirrors, but Lea Black has not faded out of the spotlight – not by a long shot! The oft-titled “Mayor of Miami” appeared with her good friend Jeff Lewis on last season’s Flipping Out, and is already shooting scenes for this season as well (yay!). Lea also joins Jeff regularly on his SiriusXM radio show, where the two besties dish about pop culture, design, politics – you name it. Lea’s annual fundraising gala is still the talk of the town in Miami, and she’s also busy working on her skincare, jewelry and handbag lines, as well as promotion of her novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, a novel loosely based on the underbelly of Miami’s socialite scene.

Lea recently sat down with the Pink Shade With Erin Martin Podcast to dish on Housewives, Jeff, her relationship with The Queen of Versailles, Jackie Siegal – and more. Lea also does a Facebook Live show every Wednesday called Lunch With Lea which she describes as a time for her to dissect “all the trash and all the gossip – everything from pop culture to movies to music to politics to throwing people under the bus – laughing at people, laughing at people, awards shows. Whatever! We just talk, talk, talk.”

Lala Kent returns
As much as I love watching Vanderpump Rules, I would enjoy it even more if the turnaround time between filming the season and the episodes airing was a lot quicker. I’ve been so intrigued by Lala Kent getting along with and hanging out with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Doute on social media after seasons of throwing shade. I just want to know how they got to this point where they are actually good friends, but unfortunately I am still waiting for those episodes to air.

Even though Lala was at odds with Kristen, Stassi, and Katie for some time, she has been cool with Scheana Marie for a while, so it’s pretty surprising to learn that Lala is not happy with the current state of their friendship.

Jill Zarin and Bobby Zarin

Unfortunately Bobby Zarin lost his longtime battle with cancer. Everyone on Real Housewives of New York City and the fans at home have always had a great love and respect for Bobby. His wife, ex-RHONY star Jill Zarin has received some support from her fellow Real Housewives and she has been very open about that in the media.

Bravo even filmed the New York City Housewives coming together for Bobby’s memorial. Current Real Housewives of New York cast members Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley (along with her boyfriend John Mahdessian) attended the memorial. RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub were there as well to pay their respects to Bobby and support Jill.
