Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.
Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.
Yesterday our favorite reality TV dads celebrated Father’s Day, which meant gushing social media shout-outs galore (and lots of shirtless dad pics).
Or in Kim Zolciak-Biermann‘s case, her shout-out featured a a pic of her wearing a skimpy bikini – which I’m sure is connected to how she and Kroy Biermannended up with such a massive brood of kiddies!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared, “Happy Father’s Day to my Papa. love you more than anything in this world you are my life and I am who I am because of you #daddysgirl #papa #familyiseverything”
To kick off this week’s Instagram roundup, we have Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel promoting her new line of Skinnygirl lunch meats. “People keep telling me to eat a sandwich,” snarked Bethenny. “Now what?”
Hand me some smelling salts, cause I have the vapors after part 4 of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Well all knew it was coming, but somehow seeing Phaedra Parks expose herself as a bonafide liar and a fraud of the sort that even surpasses Housewives nastiness was still a shock! And I don’t even know what to call her, an emotionless vessel of shade that has reached its sell-by date, but that nonsense went TOO FAR! Actually it went beyond crossing the line into crossing the galaxy.
There we all are, sitting on the reunion stage in our sparkly dresses, with our hair all puffed up, and our smirks frozen into irritated condescension, our voices permanently poised at a register for battle and self-defense, when out PorshaWilliams came out with the revelation Phaedra is the one who told her of Kandi Burruss‘ alleged plan to drug and rape her one fateful night. Phaedra related that she heard this information this directly from the Kandi Factory – more specifically from Kandi’s mouth.
Since this was no word on the street, Porsha decided it was believable, and “asked” Kandi about it in front of millions, then spent months defending herself against accusations that she’s a liar.
Happy Friday! Let’s take a look at what the reality TV stars have been up this week. On top we have Kyle Richards attending Jhpiego’s ‘Laughter Is The Best Medicine’ Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel.
Also out attending events, Kyle’s (now former) RHOBH co-star, Eden Sassoon. Eden hit the red carpet at the 8th annual Thirst Gala at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.
NYLON magazine held its annual Young Hollywood party in L.A., with Dance Moms star Chloe Lukasiak as well as Lisa Rinna‘s daughters, Amelia and Delilah.
Below in the reality TV star photo gallery roundup, we also have Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, Ryan Serhant, Val Chmerkovskiy and more!
And of course, tacked onto the very tail end was the astounding revelation that, for some God-forsaken reason, Jesus, or possibly the devil put it into Phaedra Parks‘ prayer cloth that she should start a totally baseless rumor that Kandi Burruss is a secret lesbian menage-a-trois stalker who plotted to drug and rape Porsha Williams. Yep – fun times in libel-land from everybody’s favorite lawless lawyer!
Apparently earlier this year, Phaedra told poor, innocent, unsuspecting (Ha!) Porsha this lurid tale, then sat back on her donkey booty through the entire season to watch as Porsha defended herself and kept Phaedra’s confidences. And never, ever, not once, did Phaedra utter a word that it was SHE who started this rumor about Kandi. I’m sure Phaedra will handily dismiss it as “shade,” or something she heard ‘on the streets,’ then swat it away with her handbag, give herself a spritz of holy water then waltz into the church pew for some restoration. Except honey-butt: NO – you have burned the place down. Call Willie Watkins and fire up the band cause this big, ole fraudulent lie was your Phuneral By Phaedra!
We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
After a whole season of spreading rumors about Kandi Burruss and never getting caught, I feel like Phaedra Parks is going to have a hellish time at the reunion. Sure Kandi and her had a nice moment during the Real Housewives of Atlantafinale episode, but that was before Kandi got to watch all of the episodes back and see exactly what Phaedra has been saying about her this entire time.
Other than the continued tension between Phaedra and Kandi, the other big story from the finale was Kim Zolciak’s return and her random argument with Kenya Moore.
