Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Guidice does not mince words. She clearly meant it when she said she wanted to “cut the cancer out” of her life. If you need a refresher, Teresa sat down with her cousins, Kathy Wakile and Rosie Peirri, at an empty restaurant during Season 7 of RHONJ to tell them she was done with having any sort of relationship. The moment was hard to watch, considering these weren’t fabricated friendships, but actual fam-bly (trademark Caroline Manzo) members.
I always thought Rosie should have been the full-time cast member because Kathy was way too normal for the show. Regardless, I enjoyed watching Kathy play peacemaker and make cannoli kits. Kathy came on RHONJ in a full-time capacity during Season 3. Things went as well as they could when you’re related to Teresa, until the Season 4 reunion. At the reunion, the cousins threw around awful remarks about each other’s parents. From there, Kathy was downgraded to “Friend of the Housewives.” Soon after Teresa accused her of not reaching out during her time in jail and officially “cut the cancer out.”
Kelly Dodd’s love life is a rollercoaster. The Real Housewives of Orange County star has been actively discussing her romantic relationships on social media this month. To catch you up – Kelly and Dr. Brian Reagan, the plastic surgeon we saw recently on RHOC, broke up in August. She claims that he was just using her for publicity because women in the OC don’t regularly go to the doc for a face tune and that he cheated.
Kelly also wowed us with her musical skills on Instagram, dedicating Queen’s “Another one bites the dust” to Brian. She also informed us that she’s seeing someone new. In what will become a classic Kelly move, she confirmed her latest relationship by tagging new beau, Fox News correspondent, Rick Leventhal in an Instagram post that was about her breakup with Brian. Is your head spinning yet? While this is all definitely entertaining, breaking up with Kelly sounds legitimately exhausting.
Shannon Beador shows a lot for the cameras on Real Housewives of Orange County. She’s been open about some of the most uncomfortable moments, (i.e. her marital problems with dead eyes David Beador and their subsequent divorce, gaining and now losing weight, and the struggle for financial independence). This season, however, we’re set to see a different side of Shannon as she navigates dating life.
The lemon-enthusiast and mom of three has also been able to share more of her family life on RHOC than co-star TamraJudge, for instance. She still appears to have a tumultuous relationship with her daughter and ex-husband Simon Barney. But other than being beautiful and athletic, we still don’t know much about Shannon’s daughters. Sophie is 18, and twins Stella and Adeline are 15. We do, unfortunately, know that the three young women have witnessed their parents process their divorce, both on and off-camera.
Say what you will about Real Housewives of Orange County, but these women put it all out there. I may be the only one who watched the premiere, but from the first moment it was made clear that these women are going to show up for work by bringing their most uncomfortable issues on camera. This is more than we can say about the women of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
At the center of the premiere episode, was all of the drama rotating throughout Gina Kirschenheiter’s life. The details about her DUI do not make her look good. Mom parties need not include roadies and getting behind the wheel. Needless to say, Gina’s had a rough go and it looks like we’ll see a lot of it. It also looks like we’ll see a lot of Shannon Beador making out and doing squats. One thing that felt off about the premiere, however, was that there was no Vicki Gunvalson. This left me feeling as though it’s truly the end of an era – I mean we didn’t even get one Woohoo at all!
The premiere of Real Housewives of Orange County is right here and viewers can expect to see a lot of changes in Season 14. Some of us, only me are still reeling from the fact that Vicki Gunvalson – OG of the OC – is featured as a friend of the housewives. Along with that, there’s the addition of Braunwyn Windham-Burke – a name so long and luxurious she sounds like a character in a Jackie Collins novel. At least we’ll get to watch Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd on the prowl. We will, however, have to put up with Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson again.
This IS MY OPINION! (trademark Tamra Judge) but I really could have done without Emily and Gina. I feel like they were asked back because Evolution (the production company) wants to prove they made a solid casting decision. Either way, wimp Shane Simpson will, unfortunately, be gracing our screens with his presence again. His wife Emily has been on the interview round to promote RHOC and she’s not holding back.
These are the best days of our lives! Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix have been living the dream. The couple recently purchased a home for a modest $2 million, showing us that reality TV bartending pays off! We also watched last season as Tom became a junior partner with Tom Schwartz in Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s bar TomTom. The Toms, of course, arrived in style to the opening in a his and his motorcycle/sidecar. And we watched again as Tom and Ariana defended each other with love and ease against outside forces.
Needless to say, this couple is goals. Sure, they have their differences, but a lot of them aren’t really anyone’s business. Tom and Ariana always seem to be able to communicate through them. Pump Rules fans know that one such issue was that Ariana wanted to publish a cocktail book on her own – so she could have something for herself. (Preach!) The couple has since compromised on the issue, and now that cocktail book has a release date!
Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy has had quite the year living on the outs with all of his cast mates. The self-proclaimed White Kanye is usually at the center of all Pump Rules drama. This is mostly because his mouth spits fire at women’s bodies or on their apartment door.
We’ve learned that James’ behavior is NOT ABOUT THE PASTA – it’s about too much booze. James struggled this past season to get along with anyone with the definition of “sober.” After getting several last chances from Lisa Vanderpump, James repeatedly failed to put the bottle down – until now.
We all know Captain Lee Rosbach for being the tough Stud of the Sea. He is literally the reason I watch Below Deck. No one can take care of business the way this man does. We’ve seen him mediate nasty situations with a cool head, treat terrible employees with style and grace, and really feel deeply for the safety of his crew.
If you follow him on Instagram, you’d see a plethora of posts that show this man knows how to live and love – especially his family. Yesterday, he shared tragic news with fans and followers. Captain Lee’s son died this past Saturday.
