Whew. What a weekend it has been for fans of reality television. The Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval of it all cannot be ignored. Was Sandy the mysterious “Tom” Raquel was caught canoodling with at Coachella last spring? Did Scheana Shay really lay hands on her castmate in New York? Are we going to get clear answers to any of these questions?? I will be tuning in to find out. Please join me.
Monday – Below Deck
Welcome back Captain Lee Rosbach! What a sight for sore eyes. I cannot wait to watch this week’s episode of Below Deck. We will also be welcoming our newest stew, Leigh-Ann Smith, aboard motor yacht St. David. Just in time for Ben Willoughby to solidify his bae-cation plans with Camille Lamb. Little Mr. I-Love-Strong-Women is going to manage a filmed love triangle? This should be good.
Watch on Bravo Monday at 8PM ET.
Monday – Summer House
Paging Carl Radke! Please show up to film this week. So far, this entire season feels centered around the awkward and ill-fated relationship between Lindsay Hubbard and Carl. Last week we watched Danielle Olivera and Kyle Cooke argue over Carl’s love life and stake in LoverBoy several times. All while Carl himself was across the country in Malibu. I need this lurch to get himself back into the Summer House and answer for his bro-code violations, STAT.
Watch on Bravo Monday at 9PM ET.
Wednesday – Vanderpump Rules
OBVIOUSLY, I will be watching Vanderpump Rules this week. I’m getting a little worried about my tolerance for cover band content, but this is now boots-on-the-ground investigative work. Last week we watched Raquel try and make out with Tom Schwartz on camera. This week I anticipate Raquel will be center stage of the drama yet again. This is the future of the series, everyone. We have our new Kristen Doute. You can either love her or love to hate her if you’re going to keep watching. Like it or not, I think we’ve sealed some of the cast for Season 11 already.
Watch on Bravo Wednesday at 8 PM ET.

Thursday – Real Housewives of Miami
Time for a reunion! If you haven’t been watching Real Housewives of Miami on Peacock, I highly recommend you get your binge on. To summarize the season: Adriana De Moura is pressed because her alimony has almost run out, Lisa Hochstein is pressed because she’s trying to secure some alimony from her evil wax statue husband, Marysol Patton likes to drink, and Julia Lemigova would like to adopt a kid to spice up her marriage.
New episodes are released Thursday on Peacock.
Streaming – Dance Moms
This will be my personal binge of the week – don’t judge me. You watch enough TikTok clips of Abby Lee Miller out of context and suddenly starting Dance Moms from Season 1 is a good idea. I’m still watching episodes of the show from 2011, but if you’re into cringe early-era reality, I think this might be the series for you. There are stage moms, overly honest children, and Abby Lee Miller. Spectacles on spectacles on spectacles.
Stream on Hulu now.
