Happy Monday! Let’s kick off the week with an all new reality TV stars photo roundup! First up, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow and Dr. Terry Dubrow had a little fun in Vegas together. The couple partied at Surrender Nightclub in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
Happy Friday! We have an all new roundup of reality star pics for you this afternoon! Starting off with Teresa Giudice. The Real Housewives of New Jerseystar showed off her toned yoga body as she attended back-to-back performances of Ben Rimalower’s off-Broadway solo shows ‘Patti Issues’ and ‘Bad with Money’ (contain your laughter!) this week.
“Before I start with this week I would like to address the conversation back at my ‘BBQ’ with Lisa Vanderpump at the table,” says Kyle. “Unless a parent brings up their children themselves, children are ALWAYS off limits. Yolanda had told Erika and me ON camera that Bella and Anwar have Lyme disease. Obviously it is not a secret if you tell people on camera.”
In defense of Faye, Kyle insists everyone should just let go of the past and see Faye for the amazing and lovely woman she is today. “Faye is an easy target and always pre-judged. If people actually met her, they would be surprised,” protests Kyle. “I have always been a good judge of character and would not have had this person in my life this many years if she weren’t the person that she is.”
This week’s episode ofThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsdidn’t seem all that dramatic on the surface, but really, a lot went down in that short bit of time. Lisa Vanderpump is sorry but maybe not quite THAT sorry for things she said. She is speaking out tonight to defend her reasons for revealing what Mohamed Hadid sorta, kinda disclosed about Bella and Anwar’s Lyme disease diagnosis. She wishes she could take it back, but..Reality TV.
Lisa believes the topic wasn’t “off the table” since Yolanda Foster herself is the one who announced to the world that Bella and Anwar had the disease. So, that part she isn’t sorry for – all topics are fair game when you sign on for reality TV. “On the subject regarding Lyme disease, I can’t stress this enough: I believe when we initiate conversation on a reality show, whether inadvertently or not, we open the doors for discussion. I have initiated sensitive subjects myself, with regard to my children, for one… Max’s adoption, with the full understanding that as cameras were documenting this, it would be flung into a forum where many would speculate. It was a conscious choice, so people would gain a better understanding of our family dynamic.”
Look – I’m just gonna say it, because it has to be said: Yolanda Foster should not be part of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills this season. If Yolanda is too ill to fully participate, she should have taken a leave of absence to selfie from the comfort of her bed.
It’s not that I believe illness or family tragedy have no place on a mostly fluffy reality show. I fully agree the storylines should be real and provide an honest-ish glimpse into these women’s lives. But Lyme Disease has infected everything! Plus Yolanda is not giving us realness (about her own life or, apparently, allegedly, her children’s?), nor is she giving us the aspirational living required from the WEALTHIEST Housewives zipcode. Instead she’s giving us… well I don’t know if it’s Chronic Lyme, misdiagnosed menopause, Munchausen by Wikipedia, denial over an ailing marriage, or silicone poisoning?
At the mere mention of her name, Michelle said, “Faye Resnick is a very nice person.” Eileen added, “She is being slammed right now in the press for some reason. She is a lovely person and beautiful inside and out.” Surmising that the renewed interest in the O.J. Simpson murder case is the reason Faye‘s being dragged through the mud as of late, Eileen repeated, “She is a lovely woman.”
Yolanda starts off by sharing her disappointment in her co-stars. “Tonight’s show was disheartening. Still, I am the subject of conversation amongst “friends.” Looks like I got out of dodge right on time at that barbecue. The only thing I saw grilling was gossip. I have nothing to prove and know that my journey is public due to the job I’ve chosen as a Housewife, but I can’t accept something so delicate as my children’s health being talked about in such a way. I know I’m not the only mother who would speak to this… It’s one thing when your integrity is doubted, spoken of behind your back, but it strikes another cord when it’s your children.
