Kelly Dodd

Instagram Roundup: Kyle Richards, LeeAnne Locken, Kristen Doute, Jenelle Evans, & More!

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.

It was tough watching Kelly Dodd’s relationship with Michael Dodd fall apart during the last Real Housewives of Orange County season. She talked a lot about the idea of divorcing so their daughter Jolie could have two happy parents.

Kelly announced that she and Michael are divorcing before the season ended and now they are trying to work out the details for the sake of their daughter.

Shannon Beador & David Beador

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 Walters 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!

Instagram Roundup: Luann de Lesseps, Margaret Josephs, Kristen Doute, Siggy Flicker & More

It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

Siggy Flicker took her family to her favorite city in the world: Boca Raton for some R&R. Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Faye Resnick, and their families spent time in Aspen, Colorado. Bethenny Frankel soaked up some sun on the beach while former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon showed off her bikini body in Miami.

RHOC Lizzie Rovsek

I feel like I didn’t really get a chance to know Lizzie Rosvsek during her first (and only) season as a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Orange County and apparently I’m not the only one who felt that way since her divorce filing fell under the radar for over two months. Wow. That’s long time.

Lizzie filed for divorced from her husband Christian Rovsek on October 19, so how are we just finding out about it now? Was an intern making the rounds with a search through a Real Housewives of Orange County alumni database just hoping for some legal updates? I have no idea how this is making news now, but at least her family had some privacy for a couple months.

With Christmas fast-approaching, there is so much to enjoy from decorating, from holiday shows to even turning up with friends. Your favorite reality stars celebrated the holidays a little bit early and shared some photos just in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

The Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer gathered for the annual Christmas party at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Where was Carole Radziwill, though? Maybe she’s the one who took the group photo. Otherwise it would be a real shame if she missed out on a Dorinda-hosted event after she “cooked, decorated, and made it nice.”

Peggy Sulahian Glad Vicki Gunvalson Made Up With Shannon Beador And Tamra Judge; Accepts Kelly Dodd’s Apology

It’s the end of a disappointing season for The Real Housewives Of Orange County, especially for Peggy Sulahian who, unless Bravo is even more desperate than we imagine, will likely be a one-season wonder. Peggy’s perpetual confusion and resting stank-face did nothing to endear her to viewers. She also didn’t seem to enjoy herself on the show – like, ever. Thus, here are (likely) the last words and testament of the housewife who might have been but never was. She came, she saw, she locked herself in a hotel room! Then she sat at the reunion and mean-mugged Andy Cohen for two hours. Good times!

Peggy doesn’t think Shannon Beador acted with class this season, reflecting, “The funny part is when Shannon says, ‘I’m old school, and I have manners, and those manners flew out the flippin’ door, this year.’ Well, that explains all that I experienced with her. If “manners out the flippin’ door” is her explanation of why she ‘reacted’ that way with everyone, then I must accept it. Looking back and based on what Tamra [Judge] said about Shannon’s denial about her marriage, it could make sense, but the jury’s out.” Peggy says she does have sympathy for Shannon going through a painful divorce, though.

Vicki Gunvalson hugs Shannon Beador & Tamra Judge

Halleluja! The miracle Lydia McLaughlin has been praying for all season finally happened on last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion part 2: Vicki Gunvalson sincerely apologized, and made amends with Tamra Judge. It was a real apology, too, not one fueled by alcohol and ratings. It truly was a reunion for once!

Tamicki love each other – they really love each other! Included in this pile of re-love was Shannon Beador. Who may never really forgive David Vicki, but she’ll never get over him her either.

It was the perfect way to end things. And hopefully they’ll truly move on. After all, just how many seasons can we stretch out the indomitable Brooks Ayers drama (it’s going on 5 seasons now!)? We get it – he’s scum, and Vicki was an innocent virginal angel duped because of her saintly loving heart.
