Happy Friday the 13th! It’s time to see what our favorite reality TV people have been up to when they’re not gracing us with their on-screen presence. Ariana Madix headed to Kentucky with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylorfor the 6th Annual Fillies & Stallions Kentucky Derby party.
Also getting fancy for a formal event: Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky. They, along with Faye Resnick, Kathy Hilton and Paris Hilton, attended the AltaMed Power Up, We Are The Future Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons.
As longtime fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (judge me, it’s fine), I’ve really missed seeingRob Kardashian on the show and even in the media these past few years. Rob and his new fianceBlac Chyna have been making up for the lost time that Rob spent being a super private person. Their whirlwind courtship has been extremely public, and now that they are engaged and have a baby on the way, I expect my Instagram feed to really be popping off in the next few months.
Instagram is cool and all, but Rob is slowly coming back into the limelight and he even had his first interview in years with E! (basically the Kardashian and Jenner channel at this point). It was a pretty brief interview, but it’s still nice to hear direct questions and answers instead of having to interpret subtweets and memes posted on social media.
I’m sorry to make this joke for the billionth time, but there really is a lot of Kardashian news to “keep up with” these days. I’m not even kidding. As a shameless watcher of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I am still in complete shock that former Kardashian nemesis Blac Chyna is in a romantic relationship with Rob Kardashian. But before I could even get past it so much more has happened.
Leave it to the Kardashian family to strain the already tenuous diplomatic relationship between the US and Cuba. It’s not like the First Family of Famewhore is going to let a little thing like potential international socio-polotical unrest or the exploitation of a disenfranchised nation, get in the way of a good reality TV plot or selfie!
It seems the only reason the Kardashians are in Cuba is to get attention. Or, I dunno, maybe there’s some new butt implant procedure available there, or a controversial new plastic surgery to literally turn your skin into bonafide never aging silicone. But anyway, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe are there, and blowing up Instagram.
The family plans to use the footage for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but some US Representatives are seriously displeased by the family using the impoverished country.
The haters can say whatever they want about Kanye West, but the one thing no one could ever doubt is his devotion to wife Kim Kardashian. That is not a statement that could be made about some other married rappers. With that said, I feel like Ye would not take it well if anyone got at all flirtatious with Kim.
Now there is a story out there about Kanye firing a bodyguard for “talking to Kim.” That is not actually possible is it? Well, that’s what bodyguard Steve Stanulis said went down and he’s speaking out about it. The West camp also clapped back at the weird accusation.
I am one of those people who shamelessly watches Keeping Up With the Kardashians and all of its related shows in big cities like New York and Miami, but I can’t help wondering how long they can do this for. Their show has been on for twelve seasons so I have no idea what else they can do or where they can go next. I feel like they’ve had multi-part vacation episodes and spin-off shows in a lot of locations at this point.
What is left? Well, luckily for Kim Kardashian and her family, President Barack Obama just restored diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States. So now the famous family has a new option for vacation spots and aside from that, they can use this opportunity to be trendsetters as some of the first people to make such a high profile journey.
The Costume Institute gala 2016 is just getting underway and so far the MET gala fashion has been a big snore for the most part. Andy Cohen was looking dapper as Sarah Jessica Parker’s date. She initially wasn’t going to attend but he was thrilled when she got inspired and changed her mind.
Kanye West dressed in his Monday through Sunday uniform: torn jeans and a denim jacket. He decided to jazzy it up with some bedazzling, though, so there’s that. And he put in his blue contacts because he’s edgy like that. Kim Kardashian wore silver – and I’ll admit that it’s better than what I envisioned, albeit pretty boring. Kris Jenner and Kylie Jennerboth wore Balmain, of course.
Yolanda Foster’s daughter were in attendance, too. Bella Hadid stole the show – she was stunning in all black. Gigi Hadid brought along her former boybander beau – his jacket was fun and got into the spirit of the theme without being douchey – we’re looking at you, Kanye.
You can see the pics in the gallery below – as well as some other random pics that aren’t MET gala photos.
NeNe Leakes was invited to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner – and she was front and center for the pre-parties, the after-parties and the dinner itself. We have all of wardrobe changes in the gallery below.
Bethenny Frankel and Eric Stonestreet turned out to support Eric’s Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the opening night party for “Fully Committed” on Broadway.
