As you all know Memorial Day is a time of remembrance and gratitude for those who lost their lives serving our country. It is also the day that VH1 upped the stakes by hosting not just a reality wedding, but a live one at that! That’s right, folks! Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris of Love & Hip Hop fame tied the know last night in a live two-hour special.
Nina Parker and Stevie J. are hosting the festivities for the live wedding extravaganza. The guest list runs the gamut from legitimate reality star powerhouses and music moguls (Kandi Burruss being both) to the cast of Mob Wives. Karen Gravano is mildly flirting with Big Tigger who is emceeing the cocktail hour before the ceremony. The venue is complete with a red carpet for Joseline Hernandez and Rasheeda Frost, a coiffed and made-up Yandy joins Nina in an oversize robe to share the exasperating dress debacle and wrong shoe size shenanigans that have been plaguing the bridesmaids for the past twenty-four hours. So much for Yandy getting some R&R the night before her big day!
We have another roundup of reality star sightings to kick off your holiday weekend. Kyle Richards, Kris Jenner and Faye Resnick enjoyed a couples night out together, grabbing dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood with their significant others. Is it just me that saw that floor and wanted to play some old school Q-Bert?
As the Bravo upfronts are set to get underway this week, plenty of Bravolebrities are in town for show promotion. Last night a slew of reality stars hit up the OK! magazine So Sexy party. The Vanderpump Rules cast was front and center along with several Real Housewives stars and more!
Mob Wives star Big Ang had surgery last week to remove a large tumor from her throat. It was reportedly cancerous and now she is waiting to find out if they were able to remove all of the cancer during her surgery. In the meantime, she’s resting up, thanking fans for their support and also enjoying a brand new grandchild!
Angela took to Instagram to share her heartfelt thanks, “Hello my loves. THIS is what my first post on Instagram needs to be after my time away. I want to take a moment to thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for all of your love, concern, thoughts, prayers, well wishes, and helpful notes from experiences from those of you who dealt with the same ordeal I’ve faced.”
Janet shared on Instagram, “To all my sister’s family friends fans & well wishers my sister @biggangvh1 had a extremely long nerve racking surgery today. She’s now in recovery resting. I wanna thank each & everyone of you for reaching out to us and praying for her & my family today.”
Yesterday the news broke that Mob Wives star Big Angwas undergoing tests for a lemon-sized tumor that was found in her throat and now the reality star is confirming the news. Angela Raoila posted a note to her fans yesterday afternoon, thanking them and sharing what’s up with her health.
Ang writes, apologizing for not sharing her health issue before it hit the media, “Hi my babies! I am finally able to take a moment to speak to you all. First off, my apologies that you had to find out about my condition from every other outlet but me. This was never my intent, but unfortunately it got out there.”
