This week’s reality star roundup includes The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel celebrating the launch of her new Skinnygirl Jeans along with her co-stars Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer, and Sonja Morgan.
Of course I don’t want the current Vanderpump Rules season to end, but at the same time, I cannot wait until the cast gets together for the reunion episodes. One reason is that it seems like almost every woman in this cast has issues with Scheana Marie and I want to see it all play out while they’re all spray tanned and glammed up.
Recently, both Scheana and her ex Robert Valletta blamed the Vanderpump Rules cast for their breakup, so it seems like the bad blood goes both ways. And I want to know why. I want to know every single thing that went down this season and I want to know now. Unfortunately, I have no insider information, but a recent interview with Scheana does make it clear where she stands with most of the other cast members. Well, it is at least clear where she stands with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney– i.e. not on good terms.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice celebrated her oldest daughter Gia Giudice’s birthday with the rest of her family. Gia’s aunt Melissa Gorga also shared a photo with a sweet caption in honor of the big day. Margaret Josephs and her man Joe Benigno (the THIRD RHONJ husband named Joe) enjoyed a date night with friends. RHONJ alum Dina Manzo shared a selfie with her daughter Lexi.
Rob even called in to the Watch What Happens Live After Show when Scheana was one of Andy Cohen’s guests to make it clear that there’s no hard feelings associated with the split. He also threw some major shade at Scheana’s frienemies.
It can be tough to understand the Vanderpump Rules social circle at times, but it is clear that these relationships are authentic- unlike most other reality TV show casts. No matter what these people have done to each other (which is a very long list based on episode story lines alone), they are there for each other when it really matters.
At best, it can be said that Scheana Marie lacks self-awareness. Scheana’s frienemy Stassi Schroeder described her as narcissistic during the last Vanderpump Rules episode. Then there’s Scheana herself who adamantly denies her betrayal and dismisses her comments as jokes that just didn’t land.
The last Vanderpump Rules episode centered around everyone’s (alleged) adultery. Jax Taylor admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and this has been the main story line all season. Tom Schwartz put himself on a break from taking shots after he blacked out and made out with a woman who isn’t his wife. And just for good measure, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute claimed that Scheana’s new man Robert Valletta kissed someone else.
It seemed like the backlash from Stassi Schroeder’s podcast controversy was starting to simmer down. She apologized and explained herself a few times and there have been plenty of scandals associated with Vanderpump Rules (and not associated with Vanderpump Rules) to take her shine in controversy spotlight.
Now she’s back in the thick of the drama, yet again. This time people have taken issue with a caption on her Instagram story post.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
