There’s no better way to start out your weekend than with the best reality star Instagram posts of the week. No need to scroll through your feed or type in all of the names that matter. I got you covered and there was a lot going on this week and this is aside from the Halloween festivities.
The entire Jersey Shore cast (minus one person) got together to celebrate Deena Cortese’s wedding, getting me all nostalgic. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars gathered with Andy Cohen to film the Season 2 reunion and posted a group photo to show off their glamorous ensembles (and spray tans…most likely). Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer went all out when they dressed up as famous pop stars for Halloween. The Vanderpump Rules cast were living it up with appearances at the World Series and an LA clothing store launch. The Southern Charm crew made it very clear that they are filming the next season because they were turning up all over Charleston doing shotskis, watching Monday Night Football, and attending restaurant openings.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley has come a long way since her days boozing and fist bumping on Jersey Shore. The now-married mother of two says she’s a totally different person who’s in bed by 10PM, and her only connection to her former life? Her enduring friendship (and continued reality TV career) with Snooki and other co-stars.
Since tying the knot with Roger Matthews and getting involved in home renovations and flipping, the reformed JWoww has found “tranquility.” The family spends much of their time at their Maine lake house. Jenni explains that she goes there to “find peace without cell phones or internet” and teach her children to “value taking a step back and be one with nature.”
How is Snooki not a Real Housewife of New Jersey yet? It would make so much sense. She would bring some much-needed entertainment value to the show. Plus, she’s already friends with Melissa Gorga. Unfortunately, I have no say in the casting process of this show, but I did get a sneak peak of how great this idea is when Nicole and Melissa both posted photos hanging with each other’s families at the beach.
Nicole Polizzi would be adorable and hilarious as a housewife – at least in my opinion. And I feel like she would get Melissa into some fun/funny situations outside of feuding with Kim D over their rival clothing stores. Unfortunately, the upcoming RHONJ season has already been filmed and my girl Snooki is not a part of the cast, but just think about what could have been: an iconic reality TV crossover opportunity.
The fact that Montauk residents are against Summer House is not at all surprising. I know the Bravo reality TV show has not even aired yet, but there were reports that people were annoyed when it was filming, so it was inevitable that they were going to be upset when the previews started to surface.
Obviously, there is going to be even more protest once Summer House episodes start airing on Bravo. The same thing happened with Jersey Shore and pretty much any reality show with a location that’s integral to its story lines and marketing. The irony is that all of the protests against these reality shows bring them even more attention and possibly increase viewers.
It’s hard not to love anything that Nicole Polizzi does. Not only was she everyone’s favorite cast member on Jersey Shore, but she grew up, got her shit together, and somehow never became boring in the process.
As much as I love her, I never expected “Snooki” to parlay her Jersey Shore fame for as long as she has. My favorite thing about it is that Nicole seems to have a really great idea of who she is and doesn’t take herself too seriously. If anyone is in on the joke, it’s her. She made this clear with her latest project.
They say you can’t go home again, and I would think that adage would certainly ring true for those crazy orange guidettes and gorilla juice heads who entertained us on the Jersey Shore. Gracious, I miss them (well, most of them).
Of course, it won’t shock anyone to learn that I was mistaken. You can go home again if you’re Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, and your one-time home is a wood-paneled wonderland complete with a duck phone and astroturf patio that smells of Sunday dinners, regret, and Axe body spray.
Even though she’s no longer on this earth, Big Ang is still bringing people together. The Mob Wives star passed away in February after battling metastasized throat cancer just weeks before the series’ finale aired.
While several of her co-stars spent the time following her death battling on Twitter about stupid rumors, one of the larger than life star’s friends was thanking Ang for playing match-maker from beyond the grave. That’s right, folks. Renee Graziano met her new boyfriend at Ang’s wake.
