Vicki-Gunvlason-Puerto-Vallarta-Steve-Lodge

Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows how much Vicki Gunvalson loves to whoop it up. And Vicki notoriously likes to party it up the most when she is in Mexico, so it’s not surprising the OG of the OC is down in Puerto Vallarta with her boyfriend Steve Lodge and friends.

I am getting jealous with every photo Vicki posts on Instagram while I am stuck freezing my butt off in the winter climate. Nevertheless, I don’t have a Real Housewives-size budget, so I am just going to have to settle for the vicarious enjoyment that comes with following Vicki on Instagram.

SUMMER HOUSE -- Season:1 -- Pictured: (l-r) Cristina Gibson, Carl Radke, Lindsay Hubbard, Kyle Cooke, Jaclyn Shuman, Stephen McGee, Ashley Wirkus, Lauren Wirkus, Everett Weston -- (Photo by: Virginia Sherwood/Bravo)

I have to be honest, I was annoyed with Summer House before I saw any of it. I wasn’t here for Bravo’s attempt to trick me into watching by not-so-subtly having the Wirkus twins show up at SUR to have lunch with Stassi Schroeder during Vanderpump Rules. It felt a little contrived. Nevertheless, when they previewed Summer House during another Pump Rules episode, I fell for the trick full force and loved the show. I didn’t want to love it, but I actually did and I think you should give it a chance as well.

First off, if you’re anything like me i.e. someone who watches every show on Bravo, then you’ll just end up viewing this one anyway. So why delay that and end up binge watching when you can just get into it straight out of the gate? If that’s not enough to convince you, I have some other reasons.

Ramona-Singer-Kitchen-Remodel

Everyone who watches Real Housewives of New York knows that Ramona Singer loves a good renewal. From bragging about a new haircut, to have a vow renewal, to throwing a party to celebrate yet another version of Ramona, it seems like the RHONY is all about the self-improvement. So it’s really a #TotalRamonaMove for her to remodel her kitchen- and show it off on social media.

Say what you want about Ramona, she does have great taste when it comes to decor – or at least I think so. I’m not into bragging about interior design on social media, but I feel like I’m in the minority with that one and that her fans all appreciated her posting the pics of her new kitchen.

Bob gives bad parenting advice

I am so over Chateau Sheree and all of its associated drama. I cannot stress enough how I am beyond disinterested in all of the real estate-centered plot lines on Real Housewives shows. Thankfully, Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore did manage to throw some solid shade about their feuding mansions, but it definitely played out real quick. And now Sheree has even more to deal with since the news broke that she’s being sued by a contractor.

Color me shocked. Everything about this mansion construction and decoration is suspect. Don’t get me wrong, I live for Sheree’s insults on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I never comprehended how Sheree could realistically afford Chateau Sheree. And based on Sheree’s well-documented financial issues, it seems like she really can’t, so I’m not at all surprised that she’s being sued. And I’m sure Kenya is absolutely loving it and looking up the perfect gif to post along with the news.

Heather-Dubrow-Young-And-Hungry-Script

I will never  get over the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies arguing about who really got the offer to act on the now-defunct show Malibu Country. That was such a train wreck, but aside from that I never know what to make of Heather Dubrow’s acting career. I watch TV like it’s my job (oh wait, it is) and I had no idea who Heather was until she was cast on RHOC, but apparently she’s an accomplished actress. Now, Heather is set to appear on the show Young & Hungry.

If you’re unfamiliar with Young & Hungry, that’s your loss. I’ve been watching the show since it started and it’s actually hilarious and surprisingly mature for a show that is on the network formerly known as ABC Family. Still, I’m curious about how Fancy Pants will be utilized and how long she will appear.

Kyle-Richards-dog

Move over, Lisa Vanderpumpthere’s a new puppy owner on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards and her family adopted a cute rescue puppy just in time for her to celebrate the holidays with her new family.

Of course, Kyle shared this adorable news on social media, but the pup actually remained nameless for a few days. Well, now things are officially official and the Richards/Umansky family has another new (and named) member. And I just want to know if she’s met Giggy and Harrison Vanderpump yet.

amy-phillipps

Amy Phillips wins Instagram this week. The Real Housewives impersonator and Radio Andy “Reality Checked” Sirius XM radio host posted this hilarious photo yesterday, poking fun at reality stars and the products they love to get paid to post about.

If you follow any of the reality stars on Instagram (Real Housewives, Teen Mom stars and more), you know they love a good paid promotion. Light up tooth whiteners, nutritional shakes, weight loss teas, waist trainers and two dozen other products that they all claim to be IN LOVE with…for a price, of course. 😉  I’m not shaming them for making an extra buck where they can, but please for the love of reality TV, stop posting the gushing pics AT THE SAME TIME of day on the SAME DAY.  Ladies, spread it out a little so my entire Instagram scroll isn’t the same product photos over and over.

Stassi-Schroeder-Summer-House-Twins

The fact that Montauk residents are against Summer House is not at all surprising. I know the Bravo reality TV show has not even aired yet, but there were reports that people were annoyed when it was filming, so it was inevitable that they were going to be upset when the previews started to surface.

Obviously, there is going to be even more protest once Summer House episodes start airing on Bravo. The same thing happened with Jersey Shore and pretty much any reality show with a location that’s integral to its story lines and marketing. The irony is that all of the protests against these reality shows bring them even more attention and possibly increase viewers.
