Both Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean have undergone some haywire transformations in their most recent seasons. Among the highest ranking changes was Bugsy Drake coming on as a second strew mid-season and ending in the role of chief! Who saw that coming? And what was the new interior leader’s point of order? Tablescapes of course!!
Have you ever seen so much tablescape drama in your life? Captain Sandy Yawn shamed Hannah Ferrier for her lack of gusto for table design. It is such a weird microcosm of existence to get hung up on. Like how much emotion can one person have around napkins, those weird flat marble stone things from your grandma’s house, and forks? I guess the answer is, a lot.
Buckle up. This one isn’t pretty. Jen Shah from Real Housewives of Salt Lake City has somehow reached an entirely new low. Not like she had far to fall, but wow. After a season of erratic behavior I honestly thought was sketch comedy at some points, this woman has just made it worse for herself.
Jen has been known to say some pretty stupid stuff, but this takes the cake. Without further ado, lets get to it. CW: overuse of curse words ahead!
Sometimes no news is good news. Lisa Rinna probably peaked around the Xanax smoothie era. Or was it really all the way back in the Munchausen days? It’s been a minute in either case. Are we really asking for more of her gauche thirst?
Lisa’s daughters, on the other hand, might be on the come up. Much to her mother’s dismay, Amelia Hamlin is dating a Kardashian ex-. This is the big time! Lisa should be happy she’s no longer with one of Kim Richards’ relatives. And, in case you missed it, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is in its final season. Some are saying Amelia is starting to actually morph into a Kardashian herself following a very interesting new lewk. Is this really happening?
I love a season that cuts right to the chase. *Usually* that means we have a lot in store. Our Real Housewives of New Jersey wasted no time in getting us to the drama. A quick recap; Teresa Giudice ran all around Jackie Goldschneider’s husband’s birthday party telling the cast that he cheats at the gym. Whenever anyone asked her where she heard it from Teresa somehow couldn’t remember. Of course, all of this made its way back to Jackie who then tried to help Tre understand what it feels like to have a rumor spread. To do this, Jackie made a false statement about Teresa’s daughter on camera. It didn’t end well.
Honestly, Teresa has had plenty of actual low down secrets aired out. Trying to help her understand what a fake rumor feels like is probably going to be fruitless. But I applaud Jackie for trying.
Off our screens but still in the drama. Joe Giudice is definitely still a topic on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Things are clearly not well between Joey and the Gorgas. Like, it’s getting bad. But can someone tell me why would Melissa Gorga or even Joe Gorga give a shit? I’m not exactly sure who would be trying to impress this felonious meatball. His life has been nothing but embarrassing pretty much since the moment he hit our screens.
There is a teased fight this season between Teresa Giudice, Joe Gorga, and Melissa. It seems Teresa is now picking the side of her EX-husband. The guy who lives across an ocean and essentially brought her down the prison path with him. Strange, considering her own infamous “stick with your blood” comments to her brother in the early years. Choices were made.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey women wasted no time launching into the Season 11 drama. It’s been a lot. If you still need time to google what an “analogy” is, take that time right now. …..K….you good?
So yea. Jackie Goldschneider’s use of this language tool completely stumped Teresa Giudice. It apparently confused her adult daughter Gia Giudice too. ICYMI, Teresa spread a rumor she heard about Jackie’s husband cheating. To demonstrate what hearing a false rumor about your loved ones feels like, Jackie facetiously said she heard Gia snorts coke. While Teresa is much further removed from elementary Language Arts courses, it’s honestly still a bit baffling that neither she or her daughter seem to understand it was a comparison, not a statement of fact. As if it makes what Teresa did excusable either way.
We are so used to seeing the party time versions of the Real Housewives Of New York ladies. Even their dark shit is related to a constant drive to keep up socially. A pandemic couldn’t stop Ramona Singer who has been spotted partying (maskless) more than I care to count. It’s not often we see the reserved side of these New Yorkers. Don’t get me wrong. I love this cast and find them to be some of the most authentic, even if they are still some of the most kooky.
Leah McSweeney, who is known to be quite blunt, is bringing the softer side to RHONY recently. After Ramona outted Leah’s bipolar disorder, she was basically forced to share this part of her life with the world. On someone else’s schedule no less. Lucky for us, she’s never been one to shy away from telling it like it is.
How is everyone doing? Are you all recovered from the Real Housewives of Potomac calamity yet? For anyone who isn’t keeping up with arguably one of the best modern day franchises, this latest season was a stunner. Following some bad behavior (but nothing we haven’t seen before – several times – like so many times), and a whole lot of media bashing, Housewife Monique Samuels made the decision to leave the show.
After her exit from the show, Potomac producers reportedly began looking for TWO new Housewives to join the cast. Before you get too excited, no they’re not replacing Robyn Dixon quite yet. Can you believe she’s squeaked through this long on an ex-husband and condo-living story line?
