The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama between Phaedra Parks and her now-ex Apollo Nida was downright riveting. I will never forget their heated confrontation in the garage right before Apollo went to prison. The tension was real!
I’ll also never forget how the other RHOA cast members got involved in Apollo’s messiness. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker confessed that they were keeping Apollo’s motorcycle in storage at their ATL mansion. Who could forget when Phaedra hit peak level petty and called the feds to their house? Legendary television.
What is going on with Lala Kent on the current season of Vanderpump Rules? What happened to the underdog we all rooted for? Now, she is popping off left and right… against sweetheart Raquel Leviss, no less, completely unprovoked.
Hopefully, Lala has gained some perspective and learned some lessons watching the episodes back. However, it sure doesn’t seem like she has.
Just like the rest of us, Bravolebrities can be Bravo fans as well. Vanderpump Rules couple Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark are Real Housewives of New York superfans. They love watching RHONY together, which sounds like the ideal relationship to me.
Stassi is so invested in RHONY that she’s willing to put her own Bravo paycheck on the line if she can make some casting changes.
Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jennifer Aydin just revealed that she has tested positive for coronavirus. She is not the first Bravolebrity to face this struggle. Andy Cohen tested positive, but has recovered and is reunited with his son Ben. Jim Edmonds tested positive for both coronavirus and pneumonia.
She got access to a test through her husband Bill Aydin, who is a plastic surgeon. She opened up about her experience after her social media followers kept asking her why she wasn’t posting as much as she normally did.
As we are all aware, we are living in some tough times these days. At least, we have some entertaining TV shows to watch while we are social distancing and staying safe in our homes.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Watch What Happens Live has been filming new episodes via video chat. Andy Cohen hosts from the safety of his New York City apartment. And different guests video chat in from wherever they are. Although it’s great to see the stars glammed up with pounds of hair extensions and self-tanner, this filming from home thing definitely has some advantages. For instance, there are no travel schedules to consider. This means that it is possible to have premium guests every single night.
I’m not gonna name names, but there are a lot of reality stars who think they’re a way bigger deal than they actually are. That’s not because I’m trying to be classy. It’s just because there are too many reality TV cast members with big egos and an inflated sense of importance.
OK, OK. Twist my arm. I’ll mention one of those people. Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes has been a polarizing figure. NeNe has acted like she is too good for the show that made her famous and gave her all that money she brags about. She even left RHOA for a little bit to pursue some other opportunities. There’s no doubt that NeNe was hustling for those checks. She had a guest role on Glee. She acted in a show called The New Normal, which was canceled. NeNe appeared on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. To be honest, I have no specific memories of NeNe on that show. However, who could ever forget NeNe bragging to Sheree Whitfield about her “Trump check” on RHOA?
On April 3, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga shared that their father, Giacinto Gorga, passed away. The lovable man became a paternal figure for Joe and Teresa’s friends and even the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers.
Joe and Teresa’s kids always called Giacinto “Nonno,” which is the Italian word for “grandfather.” Even the RHONJ viewers have affectionately referred to him as “Nonno” throughout the years. Aside from the obvious sadness for the Giudice and Gorga family members, there’s all an additional hurdle during this time period. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, people are not allowed to partake in large gatherings. Of course, there’s a major risk of spreading and contracting the virus.
