Like all of us, Megan King (formerly Meghan Edmonds and/or Meghan King Edmonds) has had an awful year. Back in October, Meghan’s son, Hart, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. As she shared in a blog post, the diagnosis gave Meghan a sense of relief since she knew something was going on. Ex-husband and dick pic enthusiast Jim Edmonds slammed her for sharing this information before telling him.
This wasn’t the only time the divorced couple has thrown dirt publicly. In August of 2020, Jim filed for full custody of the kids because he thought Meghan relied too hard on nannies. Which is hilarious considering how much Jim loves nannies. Not to mention their latest public feud has been about who was dumber for getting COVID. Back in April, Jim tested positive after partying in Nashville with his daughter. Flash forward to November when Jim and his daughter got to point the finger at Meghan for getting COVID and behaving irresponsibly. Did I mention Meghan also managed to get a boyfriend in the midst of all this fighting? Well, she did. He was even warned by friends who watch Real Housewives of Orange County to steer clear.
Hannah Ferrier may have been fired from Below Deck Mediterranean, but she is still following the franchise. Case in point are the Tweets that Hannah shared regarding Below Deck’s new chef, Rachel Hargrove. She seems to be speaking in support of Rachel after an episode in which Chief Stew Francesca Rubi shaded her uncouth sense of humor.
It’s no epiphany that charter chefs are difficult. Both Hannah and Kate Chastain struggled to deal with challenging personalities in the galley. No one more so than Hannah. She got Mila Kolomeitseva, who licked steaks and used box pancake mixes. Then there was Tom Checketts and his mansplaining tantrums. Adam Glick cooked decently, but belittled the interior staff.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Ring-a-ding-dong, Karma is dropping off some early holiday gifts. And this one is a DOOZY. Bravo fans got a lesson in what not to do this year. The clock struck 15 minutes for both Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute of Vanderpump Rules fame. Chances are, Vanderpump Rules will be the only fame these two are familiar with due to their little police report stunt involving former SURver Faith Stowers.
Stassi and Kristen were canned amid accusations of racism. Faith took the baton and started running with it. She claimed Pump Rules lacked diversity (duh). She directly attacked Lisa Vanderpump, which was
foolish interesting. It seemed Faith was on a one-woman mission to disparage the show that put her name on the reality television roster. In a shocking turn of events, while Stassi and Kristen work day and night to crawl back to your tv, Faith might be a couple of laps ahead.
The Real Housewives shows are known for many things. They love feuding over petty matters. Glam squads have become a staple. Many of them seem to purposely spit out one-liners with the hope of slapping their own quotes on a t-shirt or novelty coffee mug. Plenty of Real Housewives have tried (and failed) at singing careers.
Of course, almost all of them have become social media influencers, schilling laxative teas, subscription boxes, and fast fashion products on Instagram. And, then there are the many business attempts. We have heard about many businesses that have never actually come to fruition, like Sonja Morgan’s highly-hyped-up toaster oven or Sheree Whitfield’s She by Sheree clothing line. Then, there are the businesses that crumbled pretty quickly, like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant.
Southern Charm Season 7 started out with a lot of Cameran Eubanks-centered drama. However, Cameran quit the show by then. The one time Cam actually had a storyline that didn’t involve her casting judgment on someone else’s life, she just peaced out. She even had her close friend Leva Bonaparte who would have been in her corner if she decided to confront Kathryn Dennis.
Kathryn spread rumors that Cam’s husband Jason Wimberly was cheating on her. Instead of just denying this on the show (if it is indeed false) and putting Kathryn in her place, Cameran just stopped filming. Is that the ultimate sign of maturity? Or is it just simply an example of “when there’s smoke, there’s fire”? I guess we will never really know. Was it messy for Kathryn to spread this gossip? Hell, yes (especially if it is false). However, as the flashbacks showed, Cameran was not kind to Kathryn for many years. Does that justify what Kathryn did? No, but it’s certainly a messy situation.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City came in like a lion and will go out like a bat out of hell, apparently. If you haven’t watched, then you need to, and if you have then you already know. They have snow. They have blenders. And they have Jen Shah. Jen has the whole Housewife thing down to a formula and her formula is basically read, rinse, and repeat.
Jen is not one to stay quiet, which is preferred, because, MENTION IT ALL. She isn’t shy about sharing her opinion on fellow cast mates and now Jen is branching out to share her thoughts about other Bravo ladies. During a recent interview, Jen was asked who her least favorite Housewife is overall. And if you thought Jen would avoid this question in the name of keeping the peace, you might want to think again.
Is anyone out there starting to feel like this season of Below Deck is perpetually stuck in first gear? For the first couple episodes, I chalked it up to a new crew. After all, we didn’t have Kate Chastain as our fearless leader to get things going. Plus, Captain Lee Rosbach spent almost the entire first episode in the hospital. For the first time, our real fearless leader arrived on My Seanna hobbling and, well, fragile. As a result, everything felt hesitant and uncertain. But at a certain point, you expect everyone to get their sea legs under them and get the show moving. Right?
However, that hasn’t really happened yet. As a result, we’re five episodes deep into the season, and everyone’s insecurities are running rampant on this boat. Captain Lee may be recovering, but the only crew member who really jumped in and dealt with her insecurity was Izzy Wouters. And look at her now! All it took was a change from interior to deck crew and she’s thriving on board. Most of the others? Not so much…
Believe it or not, there’s one steadfast rule when it comes to Bravolebrities. Hands off the spawn. Kids can be running around like spoiled demonic entities on a booze cruise, and no unsavory comments will be made. But once “the children” reach a certain age, the line can become muddy. If a Housewife has an offspring who is a whole ass adult and that whole ass adult knowingly throws themselves into a storyline, all bets could be off.
That brings us to Brooks Marks, son of Meredith Marks, who is not Lisa Barlow, on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Meredith has two children, who apparently attend college when no cameras are in Mom’s living room. Brooks has been “taking a semester off” to support Meredith during a personal struggle. Translation, boo boo wants to be on tv. Well, ‘ol Brooksy got his wish and has fully inserted himself into some drama, Jen Shah style.
