RHOC

Instagram Roundup

There is just so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Obviously, health and happiness are high up on the list, but somewhere after the main priorities in life, the dedicated TV viewers are thankful for their favorite reality stars. Aside from spending time with family and devouring delicious foods, there’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by enjoying some reality star photos in the latest edition of Instagram Roundup. It’s also a lot better than indulging in awkward or boring conversation with your least favorite relatives.

There were just so many random (and juicy) things going on this week! Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D was hanging out with former cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Amber Marchese to talk shit about Teresa at a friend’s baby shower. Love & Hip Hop star Joseline Hernandez shared a photo with her and Cynthia Bailey’s ex husband Peter Thomas. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent shared a selfie from church (yes, you read that correctly) and she even made it to Kathy Wakile’s pizza restaurant in New Jersey- if that is not the most random pairing in the world, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, yes I do: Whitney Sudler-Smith at a baby shower with Reese Witherspoon. I have so many questions about that one.

Check out the most interesting photos from the last week in the gallery below!

Lydia McLaughlin defends her faith on RHOC reunion

So far this reunion, Lydia McLaughlin has not been her happy-go-lucky self, instead she’s been a bit snide and defensive toward her co-stars. The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Bravo blog to explain her actions and reactions.

Despite her combative attitude toward Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds, Lydia claims that she “went into the reunion optimistic.” She added, “I didn’t want to expect fighting and drama. I was hoping to talk about differences and hopefully move forward and make strides in friendships.”

Peggy Sulahian Thinks Lydia McLaughlin’s Religious Beliefs Should Be Off Limits; Sad About The RHOC Divorce Announcements

Wait – was Peggy Sulahian actually at the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? Because I don’t recall her saying much, aside from a confusing explanation of how coal works atop a grill. In any case, Peggy has a lot to say about what other people said at the reunion, and she breaks it all down in her blog this week!

According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”

Shannon Beador opens up about her divorce

The first part of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was shockingly real as the ladies discussed broken marriages and motherhood. Shannon Beador finally stopped shrieking “WOOOOWWWWW! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! A VOW RENEWAL!” and quit convincing herself that David loves her. Which has always been the real joke. I mean, it’s been over for years – vow renewal and all –  but Shannon finally accepted it and moved out. Addendum: David finally kicked her out.

I mean it’s not like anyone believed this happy re-united love story of David and Shannon, although she certainly thought they were this inspiration to us all, but it’s still sad to see Shannon processing everything. Clearly she never saw it coming, which is the saddest thing of all.

The other hot topic was whether Jesus ate Lydia McLaughlin‘s brain, thus making her poisoned by a fear of drag queens. OK, it wasn’t quite that dramatic unless you’re Meghan Edmonds.

Kelly Dodd

This season, Kelly Dodd joined the ranks of Bravo’s unsurprising divorces. Kelly filed for divorce from Michael Dodd, her husband of 11 years, two months ago after viewers witnessed them fighting and trash talking each other for two seasons on Real Housewives Of Orange County.

Not even some sage advice about marriage and intimacy from Vicki Gunvalson could put MiKelly back together again! Imagine that… (sarcasm). What’s unique about Kelly’s situation, however, is that this is actually the second time she’s filed for divorce from Michael – and this time she hopes to see it through to the finish line. Kelly shares that they’re already working out a custody agreement for Jolie, 12.

Instagram Roundup: Porsha Williams, Terra Jole, Dorinda Medley, Rasheed Frost, & More

Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.

 

Real Housewives Of Dallas

Season 2 of Real Housewives of Dallas was better than anyone expected. The reunion just aired and the fandom is already looking forward to Season 3. I really feel like they fixed all the issues from the very forgettable Season 1 and got the perfect cast this time around.

With that said, I feel like the adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies to the cast of RHOD, but apparently the people behind the show are looking to shake things up for next year.

Peggy Sulahian Takes Responsibility For Her Part In The Misunderstanding With Shannon Beador

As we wind down this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County and hang our hopes on some exciting bits of drama the reunion episodes coming up, Peggy Sulahian is reflecting on this week’s finale episode. Peggy shares her thoughts on her “finer things” lifestyle, her relationship with Shannon Beador, and more.

Peggy gushed over Meghan King‘s candle party. She is also trying to understand why the women seem perplexed over her “pampered princess” life. Peggy feels if she was a man, nobody would question it one bit. “The launch party was beautiful and styled to perfection. Every detail was attended to, and it looked beautiful, as did so many of the guests. Everyone was dressed up and stunning. As the evening continued, Kelly brought to my attention (again) the fact that I am a pampered princess. What can I say — I am! I don’t understand why they are taken aback by it. Haven’t you seen a woman who is cared for? It isn’t just that. Yes, I enjoy the finer things in life, but I also worked for them. If I was a man, would people mention it so much? And in this time, my world was confined to that which I needed to focus on: my family and our company. I stand with my husband. We work together. Our lives have been our children, the business, our families, and our marriage! These have kept me busy for a long time. Not until recently have I had time for other endeavors. I focused on the charities with my children’s schools and our community. But with all the changes occurring in our lives, things have changed. So now, I’m on to the next phase of my life.”
