Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
When most Housewives leave the show, it’s usually followed by some made up stories about how they left of their own accord and that they are moving on to bigger opportunities- something that no one believes. That does not seem to be the case with Meghan Edmonds after her recent departure from Real Housewives of Orange County. The mother of one is pregnant with twin boys, moving on with her life away from the reality TV cameras, and focusing on her family.
Meghan revealed that her family broke ground to build their new home. Spoiler alert: it’s not in Orange County, California, so the likelihood of a Meghan guest appearance next season is not likely. And in all honesty, it really seems like she doesn’t care- unlike the two other women
who are trying to spin the story who will not be returning next year.
Considering that the demise of his marriage played out during the last few Real Housewives of Orange County seasons, it’s not too surprising that David Beador will not be on the show next season. The fans heard all about his affair, watched him renew his vows with Shannon Beador, and eat potato chips in front of her while she was on a diet before she confirmed the end of their marriage during the reunion taping.
It seems like a given that David would be off the show now that he and Shannon aren’t together, but thanks to Housewives ex-husbands like Peter Thomas and Frank Catania, who are very present on their exes’ shows, this is something that needs to be clarified. Even so, David did seem uncomfortable in front of the camera, so it isn’t at-all shocking that he’s done with the show. Plus he has a new girlfriend these days.
Most of the Real Housewives of Orange County fans will rejoice over this news: Peggy Sulahian will not be back next season. She seemed like a nice enough person, but she really didn’t fit in with the cast at all. That’s not necessarily a bad thing since the last season of the show was its worst one yet.
Nevertheless, a cast shake up was much-needed. Peggy was not super close with any of her costars, she was not (intentionally) funny, and she just wasn’t a big hit with (most of) the fans. So did she leave the show or was she fired?
There is just so much reality TV action to keep up with, from the shows themselves, to the latest headlines in between seasons, and then there are all of the social media posts. No need to worry about keeping up with the Instagram posts though. This week’s Instagram Roundup has you covered with all of the best, weirdest, and most interesting reality TV star photos from the week.
There were plenty of family friendly photos this week. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks shared a very real photo with her daughter Palmer. Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and (pregnant) Catherine Giudici Lowe posed for an adorable pic with their son Samuel. Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovsky hung out with his dog and his son Shai. Janelle Evans shared a photo of husband David Eason with their family. Princess Love showed off her baby bump at the six month mark of her pregnancy.
Lydia took to her personal blog to share the news with fans of the show. She shared, “RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time. I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity.”
On one hand, it’s pretty surprising that Meghan Edmonds left Real Housewives of Orange County. She was all about sharing her first pregnancy on the show, so I figured that she would love to talk about being pregnant with twin boys. Then again, she really hasn’t contributed to the drama after her first season cancer investigation, so it was about time for her to leave.
Not only that, but she’s basically living in St. Louis with her husband Jim Edmonds, so unless there’s a Real Housewives of St. Louis, it doesn’t make sense for Meghan to be a Real Housewife. Even so, Meghan recently admitted that leaving the show was actually a tough decision to make. She even consulted her psychic Mystic Michaela, who appeared on Real Housewives of Orange County this past season.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
