After such an epic saga of drama between Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis, it’s easy to forget that she also got with Shep Rose during the first season of Southern Charm. One person who didn’t forget was Shep himself who remembers that era pretty fondly and has no issue discussing it. Not that Shep really has an issue discussing anything. The man is an open book. He was really made for reality TV.
Shep discussed his upcoming love triangle with new cast members Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner– which I cannot wait for since Austen is the only formidable opponent that Shep has faced when it comes to wooing the ladies. He attempted to explain the odd dynamic between him and Craig Conover. And he even reminded us all that there was a person named Jenna in Season 1 of the show.
I still don’t quite get why William Shatner has so much animosity toward Nick Viall, but apparently he is a very avid viewer of the Bachelorfranchise- which is something I understand. Still, I think he might have me beat when it comes to investing in a reality TV show. William was really going in with his Twitter campaign to get Nick booted from Dancing With the Stars.
He encouraged the fans to vote for “anybody but Nick” in a pretty excessive manner. And I’m pretty sure it was all based on what he watched from Nick’s appearances on reality TV- not anything that actually went down between the two of them. The whole thing just seemed very off-base and out of nowhere to me.
I had no idea that William Shatner has such strong opinions about The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars, but I cannot stop laughing. William has been adamantly campaigning to get Nick Viall booted from the ballroom in a series of impassioned tweets. I feel like I have finally identified the one person who takes reality TV more seriously than I do.
Sure, I feel bad for Nick, but Shatner’s devotion to both of these shows is just entertainment to me. He went on and on an on and on trying to rally support to vote for every contestant other than Nick.
Who is Erika‘s competition? Well, she has her work cut out for her, as she’s up against gymnast Simone Biles, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, Glee (um, hello, dancing!) star Heather Morris, and figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Just to name a few. Check out the full cast list below and let us know if you’ll watch.
It seemed all good in the hood when former Bacheloretteleads Kaitlyn Bristowe and Andi Dorfman joined their mutual runner-up Nick Viall during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel to promote Nick’s season of The Bachelor. The thought of this made me feel awkward given Kaitlyn and Nick’s history, but also because of Kaitlyn’s rocky history with the Bachelor franchise. Kaitlyn infamously spoiled her own Bachelorette season when she accidentally posted a photo with her in bed with her winner/fiance Shawn Booth. So I was pretty surprised when she was back in the fold promoting The Bachelor. Well, that was short-lived since Kaitlyn ranted on Twitter about Nick getting the opportunity to be on Dancing With the Stars.
The last lead from the franchise to appear on DWTSwas Chris Soules and many people credit the demise of his Bachelor engagement with Whitney Bischoff to being on Dancing With the Stars. And many past Bachelor leads have warned their successors from following in their foot steps since the show is rough for a new relationship. So it wasn’t super surprising when the last three series leads did not go on to the ballroom. Well, apparently there’s more to that.
Although many of our favorite reality stars won’t be attending the Oscars this weekend, they can at least garner invites to the pre-parties! OK! Magazine rolled out the red carpet for Lala Kent, Scheana Marie, Kristen Taekman, Kenya Moore, Lauren Bushnell and even Ariana Madix‘s brother Jeremy at their pre-Oscar bash on Wednesday night.
Other reality stars spotted out and about this week: Kyle Richards running errands, Joanna Krupa photographed around L.A., Julianne Hough in Vegas and many more!
Stassi Schroeder‘s latest podcast covers issues far and wide in the realms of reality TV – from how villains save reality TV, to Real Housewives, to how The Bachelor has changed. But the Vanderpump Rules star also discusses her dream funeral, high-stakes Instagram negotiation, and why she’s obsessed with Asian women.
Below are some of the highlights (I use that term loosely). Stassi’s guest is her friend, comedian Annabelle DeSisto. Honestly, almost every topic on the show came back to death of some sort, which is strange.
