We were ALL expecting the new Real Housewives series announcement at BravoCon. However, pretty much no one saw it coming when Andy Cohen said the new show is Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
Many people were so sure that the Real Housewives of Chicago was in the works. Not only that, but Tinsley Mortimer has been going back and forth to Chicago thanks to her relationship with Scott Kluth. After she got engaged, it made sense that Tinsley would leave New York City for the Windy City. I mean, come on, she doesn’t even really live there. She is just staying in a hotel room while she films. Are all of these elements coming together for Real Housewives of Chicago to launch centered around Tinsley’s move? Not so fast, you guys. Andy is not on board with this notion.
After restraining orders, mudslinging, and a super messy divorce, Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey are still living together. And, according to Teresa Giudice, they’re still having sex, which I believe.
Even if they aren’t back together, Marty still has Danielle’s back. Yes, even after everything she put him through. She was a bridezilla all of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9. She pulled him away from his children, spent all his money, and the list goes on. Apparently, Marty is the most forgiving person on the planet because he is still standing up for his ex.
Even though Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd are constantly at odds, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars do have one habit in common. No, I’m not referring to their tendency to go for the jugular mid-argument. I’m actually talking about their shared habit of tweeting and deleting scathing remarks.
Thankfully, screenshots exist. Hopefully, Kelly plans to continue those anger management sessions because she went too far in response to Tamra hating on her hairline.
Am I the only one struggling to decide how I feel about Braunwyn Windham-Burke? She joined Real Housewives of Orange County as a friend of Kelly Dodd’s. Then, she was all about the Tamra Judge makeout sessions. She’s gone back and forth all season between being on the right side of history and going out of the way to kiss Tamra, Shannon Beador, and Vicki Gunvalson’s asses.
Vicki has treated her like gum on the bottom of her sneaker all season long, yet Braunwyn (sweetly) decorated a suite in Miami in honor of Vicki’s engagement. Vicki still isn’t nice to her, by the way. Braunwyn has seen the Tres Amigas spread rumors about Kelly all season, yet she’s still going back and forth between both camps. Meanwhile, both Kelly and Emily Simpson have been nothing but nice to her. The only person who seems more confused than Braunwyn is Gina Kirschenheiter. And, no, I’m not just talking about Gina’s extremely questionable style. After a whole season of being treated poorly by that trio, Gina is training to get inducted into the Tres Amigas. I don’t get why she is so loyal to someone who is such a snake (Tamra), but at least she’s consistent with her loyalties… at this point anyway. Braunwyn, she’s a whole other story.
Tinsley Mortimer was noticeably absent from the Real Housewives New York vacation in Mexico. Of course, this was right on the heels of her engagement to Scott Kluth. She may have met Scott while filming the show, but RHONY fans are well-aware that he wants nothing to do with reality TV.
He lives in Chicago. Meanwhile, she
pretends to live in NYC for the show has a hotel room in the Big Apple. How’s that gonna work? Did she just quit the show mid-season? What about those rumors that Scott gave Tinsley an ultimatum to choose him or the show?
Can you believe that we are already at the finale of the Real Housewives of Orange County? The season went by so fast. I can’t say that a lot happened, but for me, the season was a bit better than the last few have been. Which is not a ringing endorsement, but I will call it progress. Thirsty Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s make-out sessions with Tamra Judge are not part of said progress. Emily Simpson’s occasional spot-on snark is.
One of my favorite parts of the season has been seeing Shannon Beador get her groove back. Well, as much as Shannon can groove, anyways. It was great to see her come out on the other side of her bitter divorce emotionally intact and a little happier. On this week’s episode, we saw Shannon out on a date with “Babe,” the man she at met at a bar earlier in the season. Babe is not the only gentleman Shannon was grooving with at the time of filming, however. She also brought a surprise date to Vicki Gunvalson’s engagement party–a real blast from the OC past.
In a sea of mediocre Real Housewives shows, Temptation Island has been a welcome change. This season has had more twists and turns than anything else I’ve seen as of late. Right off the bat, major drama happened when Ashley Goldson hooked up with KB Brown because Rick Fleur said the cuffs were off. David Benavidez wanted Kate Griffith to trust him, but then he betrayed her by hooking up with multiple women and having a threesome.
Even Casey Starchak’s strategy to win back Ashley Howland from Ben Knobloch was next level. After comparing her to a rat in a box, and saying he didn’t care if Ashley broke up with him, he decided to manipulate her with a “sales pitch” and the diamond ring she had been wanting. So, how will it all end? Thankfully, we have a two part bonfire to wrap this all up!
The word “real” may be in the title, but many viewers feel that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is anything but authentic. Why are there so many stories (i.e. the many lawsuits) that make headlines, but never get mentioned on the show?
Why are we being forced to watch so much glam squad footage instead of what is actually happening in their lives? Enter Brandi Glanville, who is back on RHOBH in some capacity for Season 10.
