Just one day after celebrating daughter Aspen‘s first birthday, Meghan took to her personal blog to share the news that she and Jim are expecting baby #2. Meghan and Jim went the IVF route again and the announcement will be made on tonight’s reunion episode of RHOC.
Anyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County knows that Kelly Dodd does not hold back when she has a drink or two in her. Hell, she doesn’t hold back when she’s dead sober. This season Kelly managed to be to strike that perfect balance of being a “tell it like it is” person and someone who is likable and enjoyable to watch.
Now that the
worst season in RHOC history is over and the reunion episodes have aired, Kelly is spilling all of the details on what really went down behind the scenes. She gets into why she didn’t go with Vicki Gunvalson to the Iceland hospital, why production had no idea Kelly was going to be at The Quiet Woman the night Shannon Beador threw a full plate of food at her, and which cast members need to get the boot next season.
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!
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.”
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?”
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.
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.
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.
