I love red, white, and blue! (I I luv this $60 swimsuit!) Happy 4th everyone! Be safe! #godblessAmerica #happy4thofjuly”
Yesterday our favorite reality TV dads celebrated Father’s Day, which meant gushing social media shout-outs galore (and lots of shirtless dad pics).
Or in Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s case, her shout-out featured a a pic of her wearing a skimpy bikini – which I’m sure is connected to how she and Kroy Biermannended up with such a massive brood of kiddies!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared, “Happy Father’s Day to my Papa. love you more than anything in this world you are my life and I am who I am because of you #daddysgirl #papa #familyiseverything”
Even though Kathy Wakile is no longer a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, she is still traveling and hustling like one. Just like the current cast members, Kathy and her husband Rich Wakile made a trip to Italy. It sure looked like a fun trip, but they also used it as an opportunity to research for their upcoming pizza restaurant.
Interestingly enough, Kathy’s estranged cousins (who are still thriving on RHONJ) Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice just opened up an Italian restaurant in New Jersey along with Kathy’s cousin-in-law (a title I made up) Melissa Gorga. At this point, it is a rite of passage for reality TV stars to start their own restaurant, but very few of them survive. It will be interesting to see which family restaurant ends up being the most successful.
I feel like there are so many reality TV stars that (attempt to) open up restaurants, but I’m pretty surprised to learn that Melissa Gorga’s husband Joe Gorga is about to be one of them. Sure, he’s all about the Italian pride, but he was also very adamant about the kitchen being a woman’s place.
Then again, starting up a restaurant would be the perfect compromise for Joe and Melissa. He can take care of the business aspects and she can oversee the menu. I have no idea if Melissa is even involved in this project, but I’m sure her husband has asked her for advice while he has been working to get the place up and running.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day and like all days – and holidays and visits to the doctor or grocery store, or when one buys shoes, or brushes teeth, or drinks tea – our favorite reality stars took to Instagram and twitter to thank their mothers for creating them, or to thank their children for putting up with them.
