Lisa Vanderpump is one of a handful of Bravo Housewives who has staying power in this sometimes precarious industry. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star recently shared her feelings on what it means to be a reality ‘star,’ including how she initially got into the world of warring Housewives, and how she has navigated its rocky waters since.
Part of Lisa’s appeal is her depth. Lisa is not merely a “housewife” who cameras follow around for dramatic purposes; she’s also a long time business woman, brand builder, and activist for animal rights and the LGBT community. The restaurateur and humanitarian seems to understand something that many of the other Bravo Housewives (96 in total since the franchise’s inception ten years ago) often do not: Audiences stick with the person, not the persona.
Cute dogs, cute couple, and colorful autumn leaves..what’s not to love about this picture?! I don’t get the chance to say that too often while compiling this Twitter and Instagram pictures post every week, but credit where credit is due: Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund does social media right. Fredrik shared the pic above of himself and Derek, adding, “I love this little family.” #AllTheFeels
Happy Tuesday. Only three and half more days til the weekend. In the meantime, let’s see what our reality stars are up to this week. Above, Lisa Rinna attended a special “Watch What Happens-Live on Stage” afterparty at Revolver Video Bar.
Another day, another Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsevent! I love when the show is filming and we get a trickle of photos from parties, vacations and more. Hopefully we’re getting closer and closer to a premiere date announcement!
The biggest story line of whether or not Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney will say ‘I Do’ has already been busted thanks to social media (Yes, they tie the knot, aka Tom’s balls are tied in a knot forever), but apparently there was a lot of back and forth leading up to the altar. No surprise there, as Tom‘s fear of commitment has always been an issue.
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
While we were home Sunday night filing our nails and taking out the garbage like regular people, Lisa Vanderpump and daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo were rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite at the Emmy Awards. You know, just another day in the life of Bravo royalty!
On the red carpet, Lisa took the time to dish on her two Bravo shows poised to premiere in the next few weeks: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. Of VPR, Lisa shares that it will be a “tumultuous ride” as the cast marches its way toward the wedding between Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. But, Lisa admits, the cast still love each other despite their endless bad choices and backstabbing ways!
