Fittingly enough, Shamea shared the big news on Mother’s Day May 13, which coincided with her 36th birthday party. Atlanta Housewives Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, and Sheree Whitfield were all at the event to celebrate.
It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville shared a photo of her son with Kim Richards. She even referred to Kim as “Auntie Kim,” so it’s clear that these two are still very close. If only they both would return to the show to save us from another boring season.
Your favorite (and least favorite) reality TV stars were all about the family time this week with their Instagram posts.
Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky took their daughter Sophia Umansky to explore Washington, D.C. before she goes off to college. Kylie Jenner and her newborn daughter Stormi Webster enjoyed a vacation. Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham vacationed in Fiji with her daughter Sophia Abraham. Jenelle Evans’ sons went fishing with her husband David Eason. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga celebrated her son Joey’s birthday with her husband Joe Gorga and their other children. Fredrik Eklund celebrated his birthday with husband Derek Kaplan and their twin babies. Scott Disick shared a photo with his oldest son Mason Disick.
Of course, they both documented the celebration with photos and videos on social media, but did they hang out with each other? Just based on the social media evidence, it looks like they did not, but it is also likely that they were just hosting different events for the occasion.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta celebrated their 10 year anniversary by counting down their top ten moments. I cannot believe that I’ve had NeNe Leakes in my life longer than I’ve had my children in my life, but the Bravo universe is vast and all-encompassing!
I was expecting the Real Housewives themselves to weigh in on all the past drama and spill some behind-the-scenes secrets, similar to when other cities have done an anniversary. I was also expecting to get catch-ups from retired cast members like DeShawn Snow or Kim Fields, but instead we were just handed a ton of flashback footage to reminisce over. There were weddings, breakdowns (often those two things combined), walk-offs, shade wars, and vintage footage of Wigs with her Cigs.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion ended with Porsha Williams playing devil’s advocate, NeNe Leakes slamming metaphorical doors, Kim Zolicak trying to blame Andy Cohen as the reason that no one likes her, and Kenya Moore pretending she hadn’t just asked for a cocktail despite being pregnant. Good times, y’all, good times…
It’s fair to say that it wasn’t just NeNe who slammed the door shut on Kim’s Housewives career but Andy as well (Go Andy, it’s your birthday…). Kim showed up all season emotionally tardy for the party and positivity challenged, and also maybe her brain had been injected with Botox so it froze recollection of all her actions, words, and bad behaviors. How many times did Kim claim something didn’t happen then cut to footage of her saying some atrociously hideous lie?
After many attempts to be on good terms throughout the years, it seems like Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams finally came to a genuine truce during the last episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. Who knows if this will actually last, but they vowed to stop calling each other “whores” and “prostitutes”…. unless it’s actual a true description/occupation.
Before that, Porsha and Kenya discussed the accusation that a one-eyed African was bankrolling Kenya’s life a couple of reunions ago. Kenya maintained that wasn’t true and that Porsha just made that up to get back at her.
