Last night the Oscar Awards celebrated some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Per the usual, despite their highly dramatic performances, reality TV was not honored. Alas some of our favorite reality stars also happen to be actors and actresses. Actors and actresses whose contributions to the academy has NOT been recognized with a golden statue. UGH.
Below is our list of Reality TV star/actors and actresses who haven’t been nominated by the Academy… YET! Just a note: Eileen Davidson of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has actually won an Emmy Award, she’s being included in this list even though she’s already thanked the audience for really, really liking her.
From Oscar parties to Vegas getaways, the reality stars were out and about this weekend and we have the photos to prove it. Above The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore was seen attending an Oscar party thrown by Mercedes-Benz and also at a Black Hollywood celebration event hosted by Ebony Magazine.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster shared this “vault,” adding, “The vault was not a threat but rather a reminder that I know a lot of things about all the cast members that I would never dare to expose! The vault in my culture means: a safe and vulnerable place in our hearts where we share a certain integrity and keep our friends well being as our first priority. I don’t feel the need to share private matters of other women or their families because I care for them as human beings. Exposing private matters to the public would just make me feel like a distrustful human being. We don’t need to put others down in order to build ourselves up. I am not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we’re all successful…. in whatever our personal journey might be…. #RHOBH #TheVault #EnoughIsEnough #DrawingALineInTheSand.”
Lisa points out that the ladies were talking about her when she wasn’t present, something she’s been reprimanded for doing in the past. “Watching this was eye opening for me, to say the least. First of all, I wasn’t there, and a good deal of the conversation was about ME. I find this fascinating since I have been scolded all season long for talking about others, gossiping, etc. So I guess it’s safe to say that it’s human nature and we can’t really help ourselves when we all talk and gossip, now can we?”
If you had told me back in 2010 that a post-Jersey Shore Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would appear on additional reality shows, my money would have been on Celebrity Rehab or some other franchise that reeks of Dr. Drew. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the fist pumping, cahhb cahhlling, Sunday dinner eating, GTL-ing, DTF-ing, Shore Store employees probably more than the average fan, but I didn’t really predict any sort of staying power. Of course, we all know I’m an idiot.
Not only has most of the cast matured and done very well for themselves, Snooki went on to star in a reality spin-off with bestie Jenni “J-Woww” Farley(with another one on the way!). She got married to Jionni LaValle, and the couple has two ridiculously precious children. While she still has a penchant for all things animal print, those giant sneaker slippers (I’m hoping) are a thing of the past. That’s right, guys, our little meatball is all grown up, and she’s embarking on a new reality endeavor for the FYI network. I think this is what is known as “adulting.”
Kathryn admitted she handled the situation badly, adding, “Hindsight is 20/20, and watching it now, I wish I would have done things differently.”
“When I sat down to the table with Erika, we started talking casually, as this has been the case since we met. When I had the ladies to my home in San Diego, I shared with them the loss of my father. I noticed everyone was so thoughtful and sensitive to it. Erika, while sitting at the table, shared with Kyle and LVP what had transpired while they had stepped out. Her conveyance of the story to them was cold and matter-of-fact,” said Kathryn. “When Erika later spoke of it in her interview she was sweet, sensitive and seemingly caring. I like that Erika.”
Kyle shares her annoyance at Yolanda for calling out her side conversation with Lisa Vanderpump while they were at lunch. “I was surprised but happy that Yolanda showed up for lunch. We hadn’t heard from her since we were all at Erika’s when she and Rinna had gotten into their argument. Lisa and I both were a little perplexed by their abrupt “hug it out” and wondered what was going on with the situation. While this conversation that started between Lisa and me was more of a side conversation (going on while three other conversations were happening), we of course know that nothing we say in this arena is “private” or a “secret.” We will all see this eventually.”
Eileen Davidson may be experiencing the sophomore slump as a year two housewife; or maybe she’s just exhausted from pretending to care about LymeGate. But whatever her reasons, she’s been a bit irritated as of late, and came at the queen last night with guns blazing! In her blog, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star questions Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship, along with Kathryn Edwards’ motives in spilling all of Erika Girardi’s dirt virtually 24 hours after receiving it! Seems like Eileen thinks everyone has a lot of ‘splainin to do. (Can we start with Yolanda Hadid? Pretty, pretty please!)
Concerning Yolanda’s passive-aggressive ‘bi-polar’ comment, Eileen reflects, “Originally, I brought up Yolanda’s bi-polar comment (with Yolanda’s blessing, by the way) in an attempt to explain to Lisa [Rinna] how Yolanda still felt about everything. At lunch, it took on a different connotation. Kyle [Richards] is right: ‘Putting it out there is putting it out there.’ By Yolanda saying ‘she has too much class’ to accuse Lisa R. of being bi-polar, she’s putting it out to the universe just as much as Lisa R. did about the Munchausen’s. After all of this, maybe now we can just call it a draw?”
