The Real Housewives of New York viewers have watched Luann de Lesseps go through a lot over the years, including two marriages, getting called out for a one night stand, downgrading to a “Friend of the Housewives,” and now that list includes getting arrested.
Luann De Lesseps
A lot of the reality stars that you love (and love to hate- or at least love to make fun of) were very active on Instagram this week, but don’t worry about refreshing your feed. We have the most interesting photos from the past few days in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
Vicki Gunvalson’s ex-husband Donn Gunvalson spent time with Briana Culberson, Ryan Culberson, and their two sons in North Carolina. Randy Houska was also on grandpa duty with his Chelsea Houska’s children.
The expectations for the next Real Housewives of New York season are sky high. We will (hopefully) get to see the fallout from Luann de Lesseps’ arrest, Bethenny Frankel’s hurricane relief efforts, Tinsley Mortimer’s on-again-off-again relationship, the whole cast taking fake mug shots at a workout class (and possible shading Luann), and all of the other shenanigans we’ve heard about in between seasons.
Now there’s a very serious situation that sounds like way more than an epic story line. It has been reported that the Real Housewives of New York stars thought they were boarding a luxury cruise ship in Cartagena, Colombia, but it was anything but. Apparently they almost drowned and they were all convinced they were going to die. Now there are reports that the cast is going to sue Bravo after the traumatic experience.
Real Housewives Of New York is currently filming in the wake of Luann‘s arrest and rehab stay, so naturally their epic cast trip was postponed, and they were reduced to cruising on a subpar yacht and all getting seasick (and sick of each other) along with other, way more dangerous matters! Captain Lee did not come to the rescue obviously!
The cast (sans Luann apparently) is vacationing in Cartagena, Colombia and unfortunately day at sea turned into a disaster when their boat CAUGHT FIRE and literally began to sink! I’m guessing that in the midst of fearing for their lives there was no time for turtle time, but talk about an amazing metaphor for Real Housewives excursions (and Real Housewives relationships… ).
Typically when people get drunk and rowdy, the most they have to deal with is a pounding headache and some questionable social media footage. The same cannot be said for former countess Luann de Lesseps after her Christmas Eve arrest for drunk and disorderly conduct.
Aside from being in the public eye thanks to Real Housewives of New York, the story just kept building up. There were allegations that she kicked an officer, attempted to escape a police car, threatened “I’ll kill you all,” and among other things, rumor has it that this all went down when she attempted to drunkenly hook up in a hotel room that wasn’t her own, while the housekeeping staff was in the middle of turn down surface.
There is just so much reality TV action to keep up with, from the shows themselves, to the latest headlines in between seasons, and then there are all of the social media posts. No need to worry about keeping up with the Instagram posts though. This week’s Instagram Roundup has you covered with all of the best, weirdest, and most interesting reality TV star photos from the week.
There were plenty of family friendly photos this week. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks shared a very real photo with her daughter Palmer. Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and (pregnant) Catherine Giudici Lowe posed for an adorable pic with their son Samuel. Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovsky hung out with his dog and his son Shai. Janelle Evans shared a photo of husband David Eason with their family. Princess Love showed off her baby bump at the six month mark of her pregnancy.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
Let’s hope that Luann de Lesseps didn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
