Is it even Father’s Day, if it’s not documented on social media? Apparently not if you’re a reality TV star.
None of the Housewives have had as many spin-off shows on Bravo that Kandi Burrus has. She had her own miniseries when she married Todd Tucker called Kandi’s Wedding. She had another miniseries for her family vacation (which is the most random premise for a TV show) called Kandi’s Ski Trip. She had a show called The Kandi Factory where she searched for aspiring musical artists. She even had a spin-off show with her girl group Xscape called Xscape Still Kickin It.
That’s a whole lot of Kandi on top of her being a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta since Season 2. Now she has another one in the works.
On Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss is all about growing her businesses. She has so many staff members that they’ve all become fixtures on the show at this point. She has always prioritized getting that coin, but this past weekend she was all about the turn-up.
Kandi went to Las Vegas with her husband Todd Tucker, friend of the Atlanta Housewives Shamea Morton, her right-hand man Don Juan, and a bunch of her other friends. Where were the other Atlanta Housewives? Maybe Kandi just wanted to avoid the drama and focus on a good time without the dinner party confrontations. Maybe they were all invited, but their schedules were full. Who knows. Kandi and her crew had a fun time nonetheless.
No one loves sharing photos as much as a proud mom. That’s why it’s not at all surprising that most of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from Mother’s Day. Some of them are moms and others just spent time with their own mothers. Did you even celebrate Mother’s Day if you didn’t post about it on Instagram? Apparently not.
Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks celebrated her first Mother’s Day by rocking matching dresses with her daughter Palmer. Vanderpump Rules cast member James Kennedy enjoyed a Mother’s Day brunch with his family at Villa Blanca. Scheana Marie’s ex Rob Valletta shared a selfie with his mom. Maybe he even hung up a TV for her in under seven minutes as a Mother’s Day gift.
Last night the Real Housewives Of Atlanta celebrated their 10 year anniversary by counting down their top ten moments. I cannot believe that I’ve had NeNe Leakes in my life longer than I’ve had my children in my life, but the Bravo universe is vast and all-encompassing!
I was expecting the Real Housewives themselves to weigh in on all the past drama and spill some behind-the-scenes secrets, similar to when other cities have done an anniversary. I was also expecting to get catch-ups from retired cast members like DeShawn Snow or Kim Fields, but instead we were just handed a ton of flashback footage to reminisce over. There were weddings, breakdowns (often those two things combined), walk-offs, shade wars, and vintage footage of Wigs with her Cigs.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
A picture is worth a thousand words, rights? So what does it say when Cameran Eubanks, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis, and Patricia Altschul all post the same photo of Cameran, Whitney, Shep, and Kathryn with Cameran’s daughter Palmer? I’m sure that they were all excited to meet the new baby, but are they also sending a message about the “teams” for the rest of Southern Charm Season 5? Or maybe I’m just being presumptuous… Then again, take a look at Thomas Ravenel’s Twitter account and it’s very clear that he and Patricia are feuding these days. We shall see what happens as the season continues….
With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.
