A new roundup of reality TV stars social media pics to kick off your weekend!
Above: Ken Todd and Lisa Vanderpump celebrate the opening of their very pink dog rescue center Vanderpump Dogs. “Thank you to all of you who have come out to support us this week for the opening of Vanderpump Dogs Rescue Center! We are thrilled to be open!” shared Lisa. “Come visit, shop, and adopt a puppy! Follow @vanderpumpdogs for updates! #adopt #vanderpups”
Just in case her lifestyle wasn’t fabulous enough, Lisa Vanderpump is adding a little more glitz and glam to her repertoire! The restaurant owner, philanthropist, and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been named Editor In Chief of the luxury magazine, Beverly Hills Lifestyle.
Lisa, who’s been involved with the magazine for seven years, says she loves writing, “as my fans know from my blogs,” and that her tenure as Editor In Chief is “going to be a passion project for me.” Beverly Hills Lifestyle caters to a readership who are interested in the finer points of travel, food, fashion, and “luxury lifestyle” (hey, Kyle Richards – they stole your mojo!).
Bethenny Frankel and Alexia Echevarria attended the opening of Estefan Kitchen in Miami. MJ Javid and Tamar Braxton helped Kardashian bestie Malika Haqq celebrate her birthday. Andy Cohen hosted the 8th Annual Lenny Zakim Fund Casino Night In Boston. Melissa Gorga was spotted out and about in NYC.

TELL US – WHICH PUMP RULES STAR HAD THE BEST STYLE?
Although many of our favorite reality stars won’t be attending the Oscars this weekend, they can at least garner invites to the pre-parties! OK! Magazine rolled out the red carpet for Lala Kent, Scheana Marie, Kristen Taekman, Kenya Moore, Lauren Bushnell and even Ariana Madix‘s brother Jeremy at their pre-Oscar bash on Wednesday night.
Other reality stars spotted out and about this week: Kyle Richards running errands, Joanna Krupa photographed around L.A., Julianne Hough in Vegas and many more!
Lisa Vanderpump visited the Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week – and Jenny was ready with a sparkly tiara for the queen! Having a bone to pick with Jenny over being labeled overly “produced,” Lisa defended that she lets it all hang out when it comes The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. But she did admit that her reality TV experience has come to help her over the years; she saves the juiciest bits for the cameras now. After all, seven seasons in the Bravo trenches has taught her a thing or two.
Lisa, who brought hubby Ken Todd – and of course, their adorable pooches – along to the studio, dished on everything from Lisa Rinna’s inability to “Own it! Own it!” to the personal journey of seeking out son Max’s biological parents this past year. But first, Lisa addressed the accusation that she’s somehow got her hand in RHOBH production. “I am probably the only Housewife that Evolution [the production company] says never says ‘Take anything out,'” claimed Lisa. “If I was producing myself, I’d be saying, ‘Oh – can you take this out or take that out?’ I don’t.”
I already disliked the word “panties,” but after the (way too drawn out) pantygate story line on this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I feel like if I never hear it ever again it wouldn’t be enough for me. I am hoping that after Dorit Kemsley’s apology tour that she is really done with talking about Erika Jayne’s lack of undies and her various “misunderstandings” with Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson. I just want something new to happen in the next episode.
I am so over the repetitive nature of RHOBHthis season. I need an actual story line to watch. After many seasons of multiple plots per episode, the fans were subjected to the horrible Season 6 centered all around Munchausen accusations. This season is a teeny bit better, but we need new things to go down in the upcoming episodes and no more mentions of drama that has already been overly discussed.
Since being blackballed it’s been a very rough few years for Cedric – he’s lost Lisa’s friendship, and many other friends, and gained a bad reputation, which he says was based on a lie. Cedric spoke with Kate Casey on her Reality Life podcast and opened up about the drama with Lisa, provided some illuminating tidbits about how Reality TV works, and shared what he’s up to now.
I may not agree with everything, but I think Cedric came across with humility and self-reflection. It’s interesting stuff. Below is his story:
