Am I the only one who feels like pretty much every theme party these days is Gatsby themed? I get that the movie came out a couple years ago and that the outfits are fun without being too outrageous and stepping outside of the realm of regular clothing, but it’s been done A LOT. Well, it just happened again and this time the Gatsby fete was to celebrate Alexis Bellino’s 40th birthday.
In the least shady way possible, I had no idea that Alexis was that young. Since she was all about being traditional and old fashioned when she was a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, it seemed like she was older. But anyway, she did it up for the Gatsby theme in a party that looked worthy to be the setting for arguments between RHOC cast members – not that it seemed like any of those women were present.
Check out the best Instagram snaps this week from our favorite reality stars. Above: Southern Charm star Patricia Altschul launches a new caftan company. She shared, “Our caftan company will be up and running in a month or so. You will be able to send a photo of your pet to our website which will refine it and print the image on beautiful fabric. The embellishment will be done in India. #chic #pet #southerncharm.”
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.
Unfortunately, Tamra Judge went through a pretty scary experience recently thanks to skin cancer. Thankfully, she was on top of getting her examinations and had the squamous skin cancer removed. Tamra shared her experiences on social media and hopefully this encouraged the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s followers to be diligent with skin care and dermatologist visits.
This is the one time when I am happy that a reality TV star exposed some skin on Instagram. It’s good Tamra was open, honest, and spread awareness about something that could affect anyone.
Meghan dishes on Vicki – and much, much more – in a recent interview on The Domenick Nati Show. But first, Meghan has some ideas about adding fresh blood to the RHOC cast. Friends with Audrina Patridge from The Hills, Meghan says that Audrina would make a great Real Housewife. “I’d love it! She has a baby; she’s my age. Right there, that’s a lot in common. She breastfed, I breastfed.” Mmmkay. Twinsies, then!
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.
Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows that Vicki Gunvalson has not always been lucky in love- and that’s putting it mildly. I’m not going to rehash her romantic history because I feel like all of the viewers are way over all of that, but it does seem like things are going well with her new boyfriend Steve Lodge. In fact, Vicki is showing off some Louis Vuitton luggage that her man got her for Christmas.
I’m trying so hard not to mention the name of Vicki’s most infamous ex, and it’s really killing me not to- but I feel like Vicki bragging about Steve getting her a super expensive gift is another one of those “I’ve moved on- for real” signals to the RHOCfans.
