2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
All of your favorite reality TV stars went all out celebrating Christmas this year and they posted the photos to prove it.
Sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga had the best holiday photo which paid homage to their iconic Christmas Eve feud holding up boxes of sprinkle and pignoli cookies. I’m happy that they were able to get over that infamous argument and now I will never let go of this photo.
We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.
Javi recently learned that he’s being deployed by the Air Force again. While the news came as a complete shock to him, he credits girlfriend and Teen Mom 2 co-starBriana DeJesus (and throws some shade at Kail) for keeping him calm.
Pics or it didn’t happen- right? Or at least it seems like the case for most reality TV stars which does make sense since they do live out some of their biggest moments in front of a reality TV crew. So it’s not surprising that they shared some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup. This is especially true during the holiday season. It seems like almost everyone is getting into the holiday spirit these days.
Hopefully you’ve all recovered from your turkey comas to get back onto the internet to see how all our reality star families celebrated Thanksgiving.
Above, Shannon Beador celebrated Thanksgiving without David. “Blessed with my amazing family! #3beautifuldaughters #sweetestdogever #grandmapatishere,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. “Hope that everyone has had a Happy Thanksgiving! Love having my mom in town! And a huge thank you for the very kind comments this week!”
Shhh… don’t tell the various stars of reality TV but Halloween is all about the kids in their costumes! Thankfully reality stars and their over-sharing on social media means plenty of adorable photos of their kiddos trick or treating and we get to see all their fun costumes.
Above Kandi Burruss shared, “The things you do for family…. #TrickOrTreat @acewellstucker@rileyburruss & @todd167” My favorite costume: Vicki Gunvalson dressed as a pug to take her grandsons trick or treating. Just wait… it’s amazing!
Ho, Ho, Ho it’s Happy Halloween – oh wait, wrong holiday! Things are confusing around here as our favorite reality stars swap their surgically altered faces for actual masks and a collection of crazy-fun halloween costumes! Below Ramona Singer wore a latex jumpsuit to an Erika Jayne concert (yes, that really happened), Cynthia Bailey dressed in drag as her ex LEON!, Jenelle Evans played a deer hunted by David Eason (no – no irony there!) and Kandi Burruss got fly like it was 1985.
Above, Kim Zolciak posed as an icon. “So fun! In honor of an icon @hughhefner my gorgeous hubby @kroybiermann is channeling you tonight and Im channeling one of my fav Playmates of all time @tiffallon THANK YOU @vintageinspiredbyjackie for making this perfect “Playboy Bunny” costume It’s a Dream! First time Kroy and I have EVER dressed up so fun #RHOAFinale #Pray4Me”
