Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots from this week. Enjoy.
Heather Dubrow is on fire right now! The Real Housewives of Orange County star has been a busy busy bee since filming ended for season 10. Heather has not only been supervising the building of her mega-mansion with Dr. Dubrow, she’s been co-hosting a successful after show for his E! series, Botched, called Botched: Post Op, then there’s the new skin care line she and Terry launched. Heather also debuted a podcast recently – Heather Dubrow’s World – and it’s already a smashing success.
Heather shared yesterday that her podcast is #3 on iTunes already! After just one episode.
Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow, Caroline Stanbury, and Leah Remini, love to show off their adorable kids and family photos on social media. It’s so tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past week.
Heather kicks off her podcast with Five Minutes of Heather, a look back at how she came to live in California. “I do come from New York,” she says. “I was actually a theater major in college, and I thought I was going to go to Broadway. But we had a friend of the family who was producing Divorce Court in Florida – Yes, I know you may think Divorce Court was real. I think it was based on actual cases, but… – I had two episodes. In one, I played an agoraphobic ex-ballerina lesbian. It was a script. It was an acting gig.” Ha! Ha! I think this is way more entertaining than rehashing the Vicki and Brooks drama for the millionth time!
“I have always been a really big supporter of Vicki and Brooks – Terry and I both have been,” says Heather. “I’ve been getting a few comments about why am I betraying her or ganging up on her, and I don’t feel that’s so. I feel like I’ve tried to give her every opportunity to be a supportive person for her. This all started because Vicki went on Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago and said to Andy that none of the cast has reached out to her since she broke up with Brooks. I know she’s spoken to Tamra. For me, I texted her that day and I said, ‘Have fun in New York. Break a leg tonight.’ Even though I’m not happy with what the situation is, we’re cast members, I have feelings for her, we have a relationship, and I just wanted to reach out. She wrote me back a really nice text. I thought we were good. Then she said no one‘s reached out to her.”
Above: Nicole Polizzi and her family are dressed as Star Wars characters – Nicole as Princess Leia, Jionni LaValle as Darth Vader, Giovanna as R2D2, and, looking super serious, Lorenzo as Luke Skywalker.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion has left a bad taste in my mouth. Right after I wrote this I ate like 16 pieces of Halloween candy. It’s my version of cleansing.
The highlight from Part 3, if you could call it that, was Vicki Gunvalson finally admitting she doesn’t believe Brooks Ayers has cancer. She “covered” for him all season because she did believe him until very recently. The other highlight was that no one screamed in decibels so shrill Andy’s dog howled backstage. Briana describes Vicki’s uncannily calm demeanor as being “in a state of shock” over how much of her life Vicki has messed up over Brooks. Or the five half a Xanax she took.
The low points: Everything else. Including Meghan King Edmonds‘ hair – why must it look like a Kim Z Generation 1 wig? The more I look at it, the more I see bad imitation senator’s wife.
