Attacking Cynthia is like smacking a bunny. Leave the girl alone to date and learn some tough-love lessons about getting played. Instead of bopping her on the head, her friends should pet her ever-changing wigs and tell her it will be OK. Clearly Cynthia habitually picks the WRONG men, and trying to teach her how to spot a scrub is not working. Even when she has a bonafide expert like Kandi Burruss at her disposal!
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.
If there’s one thing Kenya Moore does not like it’s
Porsha accepting responsibility. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star threw a tantrum while in Houston on a charity trip, so Kenya is blaming her behavior on editing and claiming that, once again, Porsha Williams made her do it.
It’s no secret that Kenya had difficulty with production for hiding her marriage. After the episode Kenya took to Instagram, and accused “certain people” stirring up trouble and using charity for a storyline as the reason behind her outburst. Hmmm… wonder who she’s alluding to?
It is the particular ability of Real Housewives to turn the doing of something good (or straightforward) into a giant diabolical mess of bickering, tantrums, and meltdowns. The Real Housewives Of Atlanta headed to Houston to do some charity work after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey but brought a new kind of devastation all of their own making. Thanks, but no thanks!
I don’t want to imply nothing of merit happened on this trip, but competing charity events in hurricane-destroyed towns, complete with all the accompanying Housewives histrionics, may be a new low. Possibly? Maybe I should try to be more positive and instead believe the ladies were so overcome with emotion from their good works and seeing people who lost everything that in turn they lost their heads? Naaaahhh.
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.
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.
Love her or hate her, Kim Zolciak sure knows how to amp up the drama whenever she appears on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is really doing the most to earn those “Friend of the Housewives” paychecks. She started this season arguing with Kenya Moore about her thirst for John Legend tickets at NeNe Leakes’ white party. During the last episode she had the nerve to tell Cynthia Bailey to “shut up and stay pretty.” Cynthia even hugged her after that, which I don’t understand.
But Kim’s most standout moment from that episode was when she talked shit about Kandi Burruss during a one-on-one conversation with Sheree Whitfield. She swore on her kids that Kandi wanted to “lick her box” after mentioning the threesomes that Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker are supposedly having all the time. And now Kandi is coming back at Kim for her claims.
During the last episode alone, Kim came for Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, and even the “medium” Mbele. Most of that isn’t really surprising since this is Kim we’re talking about, but it felt like a very random dig when she told Cynthia to shut up and look pretty. Even weirder than that comment, Cynthia actually hugged her after that.
