Reality TV Christmas Photos- Melissa Gorga, Brittany Cartwright, LeeAnne Locken, Brody Jenner, & More

All of your favorite reality TV stars went all out celebrating Christmas this year and they posted the photos to prove it.

Sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga had the best holiday photo which paid homage to their iconic Christmas Eve feud holding up boxes of sprinkle and pignoli cookies. I’m happy that they were able to get over that infamous argument and now I will never let go of this photo.

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Brittany Cartwright, Bethenny Frankel, Chelsea Houska, & More

With Christmas fast-approaching, there is so much to enjoy from decorating, from holiday shows to even turning up with friends. Your favorite reality stars celebrated the holidays a little bit early and shared some photos just in time for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

The Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer gathered for the annual Christmas party at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Where was Carole Radziwill, though? Maybe she’s the one who took the group photo. Otherwise it would be a real shame if she missed out on a Dorinda-hosted event after she “cooked, decorated, and made it nice.”

We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.

Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan rocked matching Christmas pajamas with their newborn twins. Giuliana Rancic and her son Duke also wore coordinating Christmas PJ’s to get into the holiday spirit. Little Women: LA cast member Jasmine Arteaga Sorge shared a photo with her two sons in front of a Christmas tree. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley got in the Christmas spirit (and away from the cold) with her husband Roger Mathews in Miami. Bethenny Frankel put her own spin on a Santa Claus outfit, plus it is Skinnygirl red so that doesn’t hurt. Kail Lowry shared some adorable snaps from behind-the-scenes at her family’s Christmas card shoot.

LeeAnne Locken Says There Was A Hidden Reason Behind Brandi Redmond & Stephanie Hollman’s Rift; Afraid Real Housewives Of Dallas Will End Up Like Orange County

The first Real Housewives of Dallas season was alright. No one was super enthusiastic about it returning for a Season 2, but the Real Housewives loyalists were going to watch anyway, no matter how good it was. RHOD exceeded all expectations and became even better than Real Housewives of Orange County which was on during the time slot before Dallas every Monday night.

Obviously RHOC was supposed to be the lead-in show for Dallas since it is the original show in the franchise, but it just didn’t deliver the same level of drama that the Texas ladies blessed us with. Pretty much nothing happened all season and most of the women refused to film together. This served as cautionary tale for RHOD star LeeAnne Locken who has carried this show on her back for the past two seasons.

D’Andra Simmons Says RHOD Cast Member Made Fun Of Her Weight & Wanted To “Use It Against Her” On The Show; Says There Is “A Lot Of Adderall Going Around With These Women”

If you thought that the story lines we see on Real Housewives of Dallas are dramatic, you don’t even know the half of it. Apparently a lot of brutal things go down behind the scenes.

D’Andra Simmons revealed that one of her costars tormented her about her weight and even threatened to use that as a story line on camera- which makes no sense since it would have just made her look like an evil bully for torturing D’Andra- and that’s probably why we never saw it play out on camera.

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.

D'Andra Simmons & LeeAnne Locken

I haven’t weighed in much on Real Housewives Of Dallas (too much going on with Real Housewives Of Orange County), but I have loved season 2 and my favorite is definitely D’Andra Simmons. I like how she calls out LeeAnne Locken in a direct and dignified way, and I enjoy how self-deprecating, silly, and sarcastic she comes across. Dare I say it but D’Andra seems like a Real Housewives unicorn – she’s REAL.

Anyway, following part 2 of the reunionD’Andra explains some of the contention that went on and continues to defend her friendship with LeeAnn.

On poor maligned LeeAnne being ‘brave’ enough to face Mark without Rich: “LeeAnne and I are similar; we’re used to facing the music alone. We know it’s better to just get the discussion over with instead of letting it drag out, even if it means jumping into a pool of piranhas that are craving us for dinner!” says D’andra. “LeeAnne was the bigger person for coming back, especially when she knew she was going to be the target.”

D’Andra Simmons Thinks It Was “Unfair” For Mark Deuber To Be At The Real Housewives Of Dallas Reunion & Stephanie Hollman “Is Unable To Make Her Own Decisions”

The first episode from the Real Housewives of Dallas Season 2 reunion has been a LeeAnne Locken bashing session. In reality, everyone on the opposite couch should be grateful for LeeAnne’s antics blessing them with a story line, but no one seems to get that. Thankfully D’Andra Simmons has LeeAnne’s back and seems to be the most reasonable person in the cast.

D’Andra is the only person who can check LeeAnne and defend her just as well- and LeeAnne really needed the latter after that brutal first part of the reunion.
