Warning, this article has a possible DEFCON 4 level “EW” factor. Just kidding! Bravolebrities had a busy Pride month. You might have seen the great photos of Bravo’s float in the parade. Some
hated much loved Housewives showed up and Andy Cohen certainly had a blast. NeNe Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta made an appearance. Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York were on hand. Special guest star, all the way from South Carolina, was Southern Charm’s own Patricia Altschul.
The ladies hung out and bonded, I’m sure they shared
salaries secrets we would all like to know. Social media was ablaze with photo ops, which of course brings out the haters. In one particular photo Ms. Pat shared, a commenter made a remark about her son’s sexual preference. How gauche. And while the gender Whitney Sudler-Smith prefers in his bed is no one’s beeswax, Patricia addressed the statement. Boy did she ever.
Are you watching The Hills: New Beginnings? I can’t seem to help myself. Seeing
completely changed familiar faces is oddly comforting in a way. Back in the old days, Brody Jenner and Spencer Pratt were buds. They did the LA club scene and while Spencer began his slow descent into madness, the CDC developed its own file on Brody. Spencer eventually settled down with Heidi Montag and Brody began dating his first ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter.
It is safe to say that Spencer does not enjoy the company of many people. That includes Mrs. Brody Jenner. Spencer feels Kaitlynn takes advantage of Brody and uses his famous name to her benefit. He also thinks Kaitlynn is the main reason Brody had a falling-out with his step-sister, Kim Kardashian. Now that The Hills is back, you can guarantee Spencer will be giving his opinion on literally everything. Including his thoughts on Brody’s wife.
We all know Mohamed Hadid. Father of supermodels, Gigi and
not-Gigi Bella Hadid. Ex-husband of Lyme disease survivor (#neverforget) Yolanda Foster. Or is it Hadid? I can’t keep up with Yolanda’s illnesses or last names. Viewers would also recognize Mohamed as a close friend of Lisa Vanderpump, showing up occasionally on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Mohamed is also a billion-dollar real estate mogul. A
completely non-shady businessman devoted to building some of the most luxurious pads in California. Recently one of these pricey mansions got Mohamed in some hot water. After violating certain codes, Mr. Money found himself on the receiving end of some community service. But the insanely wealthy are not like us. They have people on-hand to take care of every request, from screwing in a light bulb to scrubbing the toilet. Except for Kyle Richards, of course. She does everything herself! So if you thought you would see mega-rich Mohamed on the side of the road picking up trash, think again. He’s got people for that…
My winged eyeliner has been sharpened and ready! The Hills: New Beginnings has returned and
dug up brought back some favorites from the early years of reality television. Along with familiar names like new moms Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port, Brody Jenner is showing up too. My boyfriend Justin Bobby Brescia and his flowing locks are back on my radar, thank goodness! Heidi Montag and crystal-carrying Spencer Pratt return as well. Of COURSE, they are. After years of begging and showing up to envelope openings, Speidi is being introduced to a whole new generation.
Coming along for the ride is new cast-member, Mischa Barton. She joins Brandon Lee to shake up the original crew and cause some drama. Of course, Mischa has already been through the dramatic ringer in her life. After achieving fame at a young age, she has admitted having past issues with drugs and alcohol.
Naturally, Spencer has lots to say about his
desperate return to television. He also has lots to say about some of his new friends. One thing is for sure, hanging giant crystals around your neck doesn’t necessarily grant people the power to be nice.
Can Shep Rose deny hitting on any female? Not according to his great friends! The Southern Charm lothario is certainly known for his way with the ladies. Shep has been through his fair share of flings with his co-stars. Danni Baird went out with Shep for a few minutes. Until she discovered his lack of commitmentshep. Kathryn Dennis has also fallen under the influence of Shep’s
alcohol animal magnetism. He even tried it with Chel(t)sea Meissner, but she managed to dodge his allure in favor of… Austen Kroll.
Speaking of Austen, his new relationship is providing quite a bit of drama for viewers this season. Hairstylist extraordinaire, Madison LeCroy, has shown up and she is no punk. She owns a business, styles Patricia Altschul’s wig, and isn’t afraid of confrontation. Shep is not a fan of Madison’s. He seems to have an unreasonable dislike towards Austen’s main squeeze. So what happened to create such tension between Madison and Shep? Did she refuse his slurred words of poetry? Was she resistant to his beer-soaked t-shirt collection? Maybe she was just smart.
The new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is already stirring up the drama. We know
fan favorite Kenya Moore has possibly returned in all of her glory. We know Porsha Williams’ recent break-up with Dennis McKinley will play out. And word on the street was NeNe Leakes, everyone’s favorite ray of sunshine, was being “shut out” of filming. Meaning, she pissed everyone off so much last year, no one will hang out with her.
Amid speculation that NeNe might not return to the show, there were rumors she received a very hefty increase in salary. When production began on Season 12, NeNe was like Dennis’ loyalty, nowhere to be found. But fear not, NeNe made sure to squash those silly rumors when she let everyone know she wasn’t gone, just in the midst of intense contract negotiations. Many viewers hoped this was a sign that NeNe was ultimately let go after her cantankerous attitude did her no favors last year. Well, the mystery has been solved. If you were worried NeNe was going to quietly ride off into the sunset, then worry no more. She’s back.
The love affair between Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley continues. Or does it? These two kids need to get it together because it has become
tiresome confusing. Porsha and Dennis rolled into couplehood and became engaged in late 2018. After a whirlwind romance, Porsha announced her pregnancy and gave birth to daughter Pilar Jhena in March of this year.
Like any couple, Dennis and Porsha have shared peaks and valleys. Dennis has had some hair weave legal drama with an ex-girlfriend. Porsha endured multiple histrionics, courtesy of her co-stars, during much of her pregnancy. Porsha also faced some financial issues, because you have to pay your taxes… Then came the cheating rumors. Dennis had previously confessed to keeping in touch with former flames, to the chagrin of his beloved. Last month, the streets started screaming about Dennis ALLEGEDLY being unfaithful. Porsha unfollowed him on social media and her fans wondered if the dream was over. Dennis denied any infidelity and she re-followed him again hours later. A few weeks after that episode, Porsha has unfollowed Dennis a second time, again causing fans to question the status of their relationship.
You might think Lisa Vanderpump has everything. Solid marriage, two children, and an army of animal friends. She also maintains a hectic work schedule, with various successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Lisa is also a champion for animal rights. She has been consistent in using her platform to raise awareness and change laws, along with saving doggy lives. A beautiful home, wealth, and fame are the benefits achieved from her continued efforts and hard work.
It doesn’t come without a cost. Since moving to the States, Lisa has been quite a distance from her family in England. She was heartbroken when her only brother committed suicide in 2018. His death was a foreshadow into more problems ahead. She chose to film season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules, despite her grief. A decision she admittedly regrets. Now comes news of more tragic loss for Lisa and her family. But this time, she has decided to take a break.
