Whew child. No literally, there is a Below Deck Sailing Yacht child among us. Apparently everyone got the memo but the potential father, Jean-Luc Cerza-Lenaux. Yikes.
After watching Dani Soares basically try to procreate on camera with Jean-Luc, it’s a wonder how
this summer child 25-year old man is still so confused. Then again, he also didn’t seem to understand how STIs work. (Hot tip: Don’t drop an STI bomb on national TV to a girl you basically just met until you know that’s actually what’s going on. Just an idea.) Pretty much anyone watching this mess is doing so through their fingers by now.
It’s time to hop on the Below Deck Sailing Yacht train, if you haven’t already. Season two of the series just wrapped up, and viewers are eagerly awaiting the reunion episodes to air. There’s going to be a lot of crew dynamics to unpack with this one!
Despite having some light issues with each other, chief stew Daisy Kelliher and chef Natasha De Bourg made their way through this season largely unscathed. Well done ladies! Then there’s the love triangle between Gary King, Sydney Zaruba, and Alli Doore. While we saw a slight update on how these three made their way through the boat’s final crossing in the final episode, but we deserve more. Then there’s the cringe-worthy “fairy tale love” between Dani Soares and Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux. We need a follow up on that one ASAP!
Whew. Is that the heat wave? Or just the slow burn of a social media dumpster fire? The Real Housewives of Orange County casting announcement has set the entire internet ablaze. Kelly Dodd has been dethroned from her previous status as a top-tier problematic Housewife. Now she’s just a regular ignorant person married to a former Fox News anchor.
So far, Kelly’s had no luck getting anyone on her side of things . That includes her former fans and former Bravo family! Since her firing, Kelly has been slinging mud in any direction she can hoping something will stick. Pathetic, but unsurprising, really. Honestly I’m surprised she’s not more comfortable around “herd thinning.”
After what seems like an eternity, we are almost to season 9 of Vanderpump Rules. I, for one, and semi-excited to see what this rearranged crew has in store. Viewers will no longer have to cope with the likes of Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, and Kirsten Doute. While Jax would love everyone to think he is on to bigger and better things, he and Brittany Cartwright were recently seen on social media mingling with the likes of Angela Deem from TLC’s 90 Day Fiance. Just….why?
Fans of VPR already know to expect to see an engagement storyline from remaining cast members James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss. We also anticipate seeing some motherhood journeys served up by Scheana Marie and Lala Kent. Speaking of Lala, it will be a wonder how she worms her way back into the group without the main Witches of Weho at her side. Since the filming break, she’s been doing a lot of apologizing for past actions, as well as a lot of self-promoting press.
Does anyone even remember what happened on the latest season of Real Housewives of Atlanta? Ever since the latest Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia
chaos engagement news was dropped, it’s been almost completely band-aided over in my mind. Cheating and pregnancy and neck tattoos – oh my! I have no idea what to believe, but talk about the gossip heard ’round the world. Even the reigning-read-queen Eva Marcille chimed in on the debacle.
In case you’re experiencing a similar post-Atlanta amnesia, let me refresh your memory with in one word; Bolo. Michael “Bolo”Bolwaire was promised to flip the script on RHOA before the season even began. But who knew it would be literal and figurative? He stirred up the drama between the women, and in some cases, their men. More recently, the iconic stripper will be reading from a new script alongside former Housewife, Eva.
Per usual, the latest season of Real Housewives of New Jersey came with rumors aplenty. Even more on theme, the house-husbands were deeply tangled into the mess. There was the entire Evan Goldschneider cheating debacle. Then there was the hearsay about Joe Gorga not paying his bills. Danielle Staub has also alleged something similar about Joey G.
This season, the rumor about Joe came from Michelle Pais. It was then backed up by Jennifer Aydin. Jennifer went a step further, though. Jennifer waited for her moment, and then dragged “The” Margaret Josephs into the fiasco. Let’s not forget Marge’s husband, Joe Benigno is a plumber. Supposedly, off camera, Marge confirmed to Jennifer that she already knew Joe G didn’t pay his bills. Jennifer claims that Marge said something to the effect of, “You think I don’t know? My husband’s a plumber,” behind the scenes. Yikes.
Any bets on who is returning to Real Housewives of Orange County next season? Does anyone have a sense of what exactly could save this franchise? It seems like casting is all over the place.
We’ve heard from a few Housewives and former-Housewives regarding the season 16 casting. From the sounds of it, Heather Dubrow could be in the running for an orange. Unsurprisingly, Braunwyn Windham-Burke has an interest in showing her story as well. And then there’s Kelly Dodd. Some news about her contract recently dropped from an interesting source!
After a year in a pandemic, a United States election, and a massive boost to the Black Lives Matter movement, reality TV is looking a little differently these days. True Bravo fans will remember the 2016 Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes where Phaedra Parks and some of the other wives attended Black Lives Matter events. Four years later, these other franchises are still playing catch up. That includes the iconic Real Housewives of New York who finally welcomed their first Black cast member after eleven seasons! Welcome to a more accurate reality on your reality TV screen!
For boasting a life of worldliness and civility, Luann de Lesseps sure does seem lost. Though, who can forget that dreadful Diana Ross costume she tried to pass off just a few seasons ago? Shockingly, Sonja Morgan is coming through in a way I don’t think anyone predicted. Sonja was both eloquent and accurate when taking up for the movement and newest Housewife, Eboni K. Williams in last weeks’ episode.
