Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
As a faithful viewer of both Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I just cannot decide how I feel about Lisa Vanderpump. Watching Vanderpump Rules, I want to start bartending so Lisa can adopt me and take me under her wing with a restaurant named in my honor. When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on the next night, I’m scared of falling victim to secondhand manipulation while I sit on my couch at home. It is essentially a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation.
To add to my confusion, the woman who stormed out of a lunch because she felt ignored while Dorit Kemsley comforted Kyle Richards while she was crying is the same person who is an avid philanthropist and LGBT advocate. It’s just so tough to reconcile my thoughts when it comes to Lisa Vanderpump, yet I will never turn away from any of her shows and I have seen every single episode. Multiple times.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Dorit Kemsley broke the news to Erika Girardi that the rest of the cast started talk shit about her as soon as she left Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s beach house. In all honesty, the shit talking isn’t news, but Erika was not going to stand for it.
The women took issue with Erika after she picked a room to sleep in at the beach house, but didn’t end up staying over. It was Erika’s time of the month and she wanted to deal with that privately. When she returned in the morning, the women accused Erika of having this all planned out and Kyle Richards referred to her behavior as “weird” multiple times.
The Camille Grammer that we “met” during Season 1 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is back on our television screens. Well, at least the aspects that made for amazing TV. She’s left the negative attributes in the past. This time around, Camille is on the right side of history (i.e. putting Dorit Kemsley in check) and it is everything.
Camille is back on her game and new cast member Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is adjusting to the Housewife life. They both joined Andy Cohen in the clubhouse to discuss all of the latest Beverly Hills drama during their joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
Erika Jayne‘s odd actions at Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s weekend beach getaway has left everyone scratching their heads. Teddi tries to explain a little of what we didn’t see on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Teddi attempts to shed light on Erika leaving the house and heading off to a hotel and shares her REAL issue, “the beach house and the mysterious disappearance of Erika Jayne. It was weird; I stand by that. I completely empathize with Erika as I’m sure women everywhere watching do; I can see why she’d prefer to not stay up until 2AM getting tipsy and humping my picnic table.” But Teddi then shares what we DIDN’T see on the show. “What we later discovered that night— and what you didn’t see—was that her assistant had already driven to Dana Point separately and got a hotel room for her. Again, I didn’t have a problem with her leaving to stay in a hotel—I offered that option when I invited everyone. The issue is why spend the day pretending you’re going to stay over, but as soon as the camera crew leaves you have your assistant come pick you up?”
‘Money Can’t Buy You Class’ – that’s certainly the case with Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley. There are some Real Housewives friendships I relish and delight in, and there are others, like these two, that fill you with a certain disingenuous dread (think Gretchen and Tamra). On last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Dorit crossed one friend to try and secure another. And the worst part – despite copious warnings, she seemed oblivious! Like when the signs read: “Don’t swim! Shark invested waters” yet you you dive right in.
Actually the worst part is that after all the bickering between herself, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle Richards they all managed to have a rip-roaring, super wedgie-tastic, twerking good time getting drunk and silly at Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s beach house. It was the perfect way to bond these girls and put all the bad blood behind them, then DORIT ruined it all! Dorit and her mouth. Can someone stuff a designer sock in it? PeeeeeeeKaaaaaay?
On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, newcomer Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave tried to get her co-stars to relax and let their guards down a bit by having a low-key get together at her beach house. She says the ladies were to bring a dish to pass, but instead of food, they brought plates piled with drama.
Teddi shared in her newest blog, “I love that Dorit and I could joke about being late and stemless glasses. But soon, we were in a situation with Kyle, Dorit, and Lisa Vanderpump, which I found out had to do with Kyle “defending” me. I was so wrapped up in unpacking groceries and saving those brown Whole Foods bags (those bitches cost me ten cents!) that I missed a lot of the conversation. I really appreciated Kyle trying to help me out on the boat, so I was baffled at why Dorit was so upset that Kyle “butted in” on our conversation when Lisa Vanderpump did the same thing first.”
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.
