One of the constant story lines from Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the opening of Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant. Joe supposedly bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it first. Then it became a family affair with all three of them and Joe and Teresa’s father helping out as well.
With all of the publicity around the restaurant, it would make sense for the place to be popping off – especially if Joe, Teresa, or Melissa ever announce that they’re popping in on social media. Now the restaurant is closing down with the hope of looking for a larger location.
It has been a tough few years for Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin and her husband Bobby Zarin. Sadly, Bobby has been battling thyroid cancer with some ups and downs since 2009 which has to be strenuous for both of them. On the bright side, it appears their marriage is stronger than ever.
Although it’s been a difficult period for the couple, there is some nice news for them: they just celebrated their eighteenth anniversary, which is a big deal.
I am a loyal viewer to every single series in the Real Housewives franchise. I’ll stick around for the less than stellar seasons and the newer shows that are still finding their footing. I’ll even watch episodes I wasn’t “that into” multiple times. What I’m saying is that I will consume every bit of Real Housewives content that I possibly can- whether it’s good or bad less than what I expected.
One show that I have always enjoyed watching is Real Housewives of Atlanta. This show has constantly delivered. Sure, there are some episodes that are less than explosive, but there has never been a whole season of the show that has missed the mark- which is not something that can be said about the other Housewives shows. That’s why I’m so here for The Real Housewives of Atlanta after show that we are about to be blessed with.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared some intriguing snapshots in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup. Some of the stars were still on vacation following the winter holidays. Others got back to their “normal” lives which could be considered a luxurious vacation for most of us normal folk- which of course made for some jealousy-inducing Instagram posts.
Say what you want about Shannon Beador, but she has no issue when it comes to putting herself out there on Real Housewives of Orange County– especially when it comes to her recent weight gain. She had no problem discussing jump in dress sizes (and blaming it on Vicki Gunvalson). She even took her top off to get an assessment from her trainer in front of the cameras- which was met to some brutal criticism.
Now that Shannon has dropped about some dead weight (David Beador), she’s more motivated than ever to get rid of any extra pounds and she has her bestie Tamra Judgethere for support.
Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas was a million times better than anyone expected. After a first season that was seriously lacking, the Texas ladies came out strong for round two. Many Real Housewives fans feel like they outdid the Orange County Housewives whose show aired on the same night this past season. At this point, Dallas should air as the lead-in show for Orange County, which had a particularly dismal and uneventful season.
With that said, the Dallas cast members deserve a vacation after all of that drama and social media feuding. They’ve definitely earned it. Stephanie Hollman and her husband Travis Hollman headed to Cartagena, Colombia, to ring in the new year. Brandi Redmond, Bryan Redmond, and their two daughters went to Mexico for their holiday vacation. Kameron Westcott, her husband Court Westcott, and their two kids enjoyed Vail, Colorado, with other family members.
I don’t blame Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for escaping the winter cold to go on vacations with their families. Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 has wrapped up filming, they already shot the reunion, they enjoyed their Christmas cookies (pignoli and sprinkle), and it’s just too cold these days. Who wouldn’t want to soak up the sun for a few days? Plus if we’re being realistic, all of those Instagram tags and hash tags are strong indications that these trips were comped (or at least partially comped).
Teresa headed down to Cancun, Mexico with her four daughters, her father, and some of her friends. Melissa, her husband Joe Gorga, and their three kids enjoyed their vacation in Jamaica.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rulesstar Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
