I can’t help having a little jealousy when it comes to the way the Real Housewives live their lives. Nevertheless, the one thing I don’t envy about being a Housewife is those group vacations. Sure, they’re (most likely) all paid for, but it just seems like way too much to handle. So I bet they love when they can go on trips with their family instead of their fellow cast members. I’m sure Melissa Gorga had a lot more fun hanging with her family than she did during the cast trip to Vermont last year.
Then again, I feel like any vacation would be more fun than that hellish trip. Melissa, Joe Gorga, and their well-behaved kids all went to Florida for Melissa’s family reunion. I’m assuming this vacation will make the show since the RHONJladies are all about the family time, but just in case it doesn’t- or if you just can’t wait for the next season, Melissa and Joe posted plenty of photos.
We interrupt your regularly scheduled parade of selfies and self-promotion for some Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles baby news.
Josh Altman shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “The greatest day of my life. April 3rd at 4:55pm Heather and I welcomed our amazing baby girl Alexis Kerry Altman into the world. Weighing 7lbs and 20 inches long, this angel is absolutely perfect. To experience the birth of your child is such a mind blowing event that is greater than anything I can describe. I’m so happy and so proud of my wife for handling this like a champ. Life has definitely changed in an instant, and gazing into my baby girl’s eyes, I can tell you it got much better.”
Another week, another gallery of the reality TV stars showing off and sharing selfies and snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Above, Kim Richards shared, “So much Love & Laughs last night. #sisters #family #love #laughs”
So naturally Kim did what all the reality stars and their sidekicks do: headed to social media. Kim let everyone know she spotted the copycat look immediately and she didn’t hold back her thoughts on the situation.
I always wonder what really happened when a Real Housewife says she is leaving a Real Housewives show “to pursue other opportunities” or some other vague statement about moving on. With some serious exceptions, I can’t imagine why anyone would quit a show with such a large platform, so I always find it tough to believe that any of these ladies leave of their own accord. Jacqueline Laurita came clean about why she will not be back on Real Housewives of New Jersey.
As a viewer, I am honestly not a fan of Jacqueline’s, but as a self-proclaimed reality TV expert, I feel like this show needs her around to provide opposition and controversy. Sure, I could do without the popcorn promotion and the plastic surgery testimonials, but without Jacqueline we are left watching a bunch of people who get along going on local trips and cooking Sunday dinners. Even the biggest Jacqueline haters have to admit that she does have a vital role on this show. Or at the very least she needs to be replaced with someone who has just as much (if not) more drama with the rest of the cast.
Look below for pictures of Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel celebrating Kenzie’s birthday, Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer posing in front of a porta potty Aspen Mountain, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador celebrating Shannon’s birthday, & more.
I have no idea how interesting these episodes will be since these four ladies all seem to get along well, but I guess we will find out soon enough. I just wish that Jacqueline Laurita or Danielle Staub were there to keep things interesting, but I don’t blame Melissa for wanting to celebrate her birthday in peace.
