Joyce, the former beauty queen who continually clashed with Brandi Glanville and Carlton, the Wiccan who really clashed with Kyle Richards, have been rumored to be exiting the show since February. At that time TMZ reported that "there's a 95% chance Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia won't be back for Season 5 — they're just not involved enough in the series' story lines to justify their coveted spots in the cast."
TMZ was also "told it became obvious Joyce and Carlton weren't jiving during the reunion show taping earlier this month — all the other women had great chemistry … and Joyce and Carlton were clearly outsiders."
The question remains though, did any of the other housewives influence Bravo's decision?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled TV time slots, so they take to social media to share (and overshare) even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
We already shared red carpet photos from PUMP's grand opening. Today, we gathered up a few party shots ofLisa and her guests, as well as pictures of PUMP's decor. Lisa designed PUMP herself. "I wanted to create a garden that makes you feel like you're in paradise, like France," Lisa told the LA Times. "I always look for what I think the market needs in a certain space. For this – it is very gay friendly because we are right in boy's town."
Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend. BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!
All Things Real Housewives has recapped the interview in case you missed it. Of the show itself, Lisa recalls, “I do remember saying to [Bravo’s producers] that I wanted to leave the show with the same integrity I came in with. I just don’t want any BS editing. I’m no angel, I do make a few snarky comments and have a laugh. It is a television show. But I’m not in this business or on this show to put down my cast mates or get into a bitchfest, that’s not who I am, and I think if that day comes then I should leave."
Despite her fury at the reunion, Kyle feels in a better place. "I think at the reunion I was able to get some things off my chest that I have held in for a long time and I know that I personally left feeling better – better about everybody, actually." Even Brandi Glanville hasn't managed to piss her off too much!
