As irritating as Dorit Kemsley has been this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is the driving force behind almost every interesting story line. I have no idea why she would try so hard to stir the pot since it really isn’t a good look for her, but apparently she doesn’t even care. Ultimately, I bet that none of the other cast members are too bothered by it since anyone she offends always ends up on the “right” side of history and curries favor with the viewers.

We need more of Scheana Marie’s mom Erika van Olphen on Vanderpump Rules. Sure, we’ve seen her and Scheana go for manicures here and there, but based on social media, I would like her to have a recurring role on the show. With the constantly shifting cast dynamic, Scheana seems like the odd girl out these days and she could really use someone in her corner.
Scheana’s mom is livid after Summer House cast member Carl Radke discussed their hookup during a Watch What Happens Live episode. Before Carl’s appearance on the show, his costar Stephen McGee and Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute all claimed that Carl and Scheana had sex. Scheana and her mom denied this on Twitter, of course. After Carl’s Watch What Happens Live episode aired, Scheana’s mom is on the defensive, yet again.
I have been waiting for this moment forever. Well, it actually hasn’t been too long. Truthfully, I have only been waiting for this moment for about a month: Summer House cast member Carl Radke finally showed up to the clubhouse to discuss those rumors that he hooked up with Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie. This has been discussed on many episodes of Watch What Happens Live and during podcast interviews by Stephen McGee, Kristen Doute, and Stassi Schroeder. Obviously Scheana (and her mom) denied the claims, but Carl showed up to share his version of events. Spoiler alert: it is very different than Scheana’s.
Joining Carl and Andy Cohen in the clubhouse was Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. She discussed her newfound friendships with Katie Maloney, Kristen, and Stassi. She even commented on the speculation about James Kennedy and Logan Noh being more than just friends, and all of the other hot topics this season.
Did Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes forget that they are filming a reality show? I find that hard to believe, but it’s the only (semi-)plausible explanation for that last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode.
Cynthia told Porsha Williams to tell her if she heard anything else about her boo Will Jones, yet she got offended when Porsha did just that. Then, NeNe decided she and Cynthia should get the best rooms and said “the older girls need to go up” and the “middle age” girls need to downgrade their rooms. Then she got offended when Kandi Burruss conveyed the same exact message that she did but she used the word “elder” instead. NeNe continued to insist that she wasn’t talking about age even though that was what she was talking about.
Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
Usually when a show gets moved to Friday nights, that’s a bad sign for its future. However, Andy Cohen insists that he’s very happy with Married to Medicine these days. During the last episode of Watch What Happens Live, Andy shared, “People are always asking me what’s the best show on Bravo right now. Right now, Vanderpump Rules and Married to Medicine.” He also said, “Married to Medicine is some of the realest stuff I’ve seen on a reality show ever.”
Aside from getting the shaft from Bravo and being moved to Friday nights, Married to Medicine gets little to no shine from the network. If this is one of the two best shows on Bravo right now, where is the love?
Most of the people who tuned into the last episode of Vanderpump Rules got some secondhand embarrassment for Stassi Schroeder thanks to her now-ex-boyfriend Patrick Meagher. She admitted that he blocked her on everything so she would not “bother” him during his trip to Amsterdam. Who blocks his girlfriend to enjoy a vacation? The strong personality that we saw for years on this show was getting pushed around by this douche bag with a straggly man bun and it made me uncomfortable. Where was the Stassi that we have watched for years?!
Even worse, Patrick said he didn’t care if she had sex with other guys as long as she didn’t have an emotional connection with them – at her birthday party, surrounded by her close friends and family. Who does that!? Love Stassi or not, it was hard to watch and not be infuriated on her behalf. Thankfully, Stassi was on Watch What Happens Live the same night that Vanderpump Rules episode aired and confirmed that she has a new man in her life.
