It can be hard to keep up with the cast of 90 Day Fiance. So many of them have gone on to spin-offs for the network and their social media is flooded with new ventures. Boom Bod, flat tummy tea, you name it, they’re selling it. Then there are all the fun gossip pieces on each one of them. But Larissa Dos Santos Lima takes the cake for keeping the tabloids busy and her fans talking.
We thought we saw the last of her once she and 90 Day husband Colt Johnson got divorced. But Larissa was determined to stay in the spotlight, Colt-eee be damned! She is well known for having an on-again off-again relationship with Eric Nichols. She even claimed to have a stalker. And despite being fully divorced from Colt, it was recently announced that she would be back for another season of 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After.
Kelly Dodd is back at it again. The Real Housewives of Orange County star is back with another
crap hot take on the coronavirus pandemic. As we all know, this isn’t the first time Kelly has landed in hot water over such statements. Other (former) cast members like Vicki Gunvalson, have also been taken to task about their corona sentiments. But none like Kelly. Maybe because she won’t stop spewing nonsense about it. Just a thought!
Kelly first caught heat for traveling back and forth to New York to be with her fiance, Rick Leventhal. She then went a step further and made a flippant remark about mortality during the outbreak. Kelly’s exact words? “Well, people are going to die.” But she wasn’t done. Kelly also said that maybe coronavirus is god’s way of “thinning the heard”. She later apologized for it, but fans weren’t hearing it and have since turned on Kelly. Who could blame them? Because Kelly has proven she hasn’t learned her lesson.
Yvonna Momplaisir might be a mere “friend of” on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But for being a friend of, she is bringing plenty to the table. She might be summed up as a one-time NeNe Leakes friend and accomplice in Snake Gate. Either way, Yovanna proved she’s not taking the fall for anyone. On part three of the reunion, Yovanna sat down to tell them her side of the Snake Gate drama. According to Yovanna, NeNe set the whole thing up and she was just trying to help a friend out. We’ve heard that one before, right?
NeNe now infamously stormed off and didn’t bother to defend herself. But if NeNe was going to start the drama, Yovanna was going to finish it. Was this all a ploy for Yovanna to get herself a peach?
NeNe Leakes is having quite the season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Despite bringing little to that table (in my humble opinion), she stays in the news. And maybe that’s her end game. Doing the bare minimum on the show and then staying in the lime light on her own terms.
So far this season, we haven’t seen much of her. But we’ve seen her all over her Instagram and YouTube channel, ripping her cast mates to shreds. NeNe has accused Kandi Burruss of never being number one at anything in her life. She’s called Eva Marcille boring. She even reignited an old beef with Sheree Whitfield. NeNe couldn’t even finish filming the reunion when ex-accomplice Yovanna Momplaisir showed up to tell her side of the Snake Gate story. And let’s face it, storming off made NeNe look guilty as hell for starting the whole thing, just like Yovanna was saying.
It’s been years since we saw Phaedra Parks on Real Housewives of Atlanta. And if it weren’t for how dirty she did costar Kandi Burruss, I would take her back over NeNe Leakes any day. But before all that went down, Phaedra had the best shade, the best kids and the most dramatic marriage situation. She was a true renaissance woman to boot. A lawyer, mortician and creator/star of the Donkey Booty workout. Phaedra did it all.
And she gave us a truly real-life dramatic breakdown of her marriage with then-husband, Apollo Nida. Don’t get me wrong, it was more scary than dramatic when he showed up to get his things and stormed around their house, despite being on camera. But it was a moment that was the most real, even when reality tv sometimes scrapes for a storyline. I felt for Phaedra in that moment.
If I’m being honest, Laura Jallali is not one of my 90 Day Fiance favorites. When we were first introduced to her on 90 Day Fiance The Other Way, I was side-eyeing her from the get-go. I can look past her 20 year age difference from finance-turned-husband, Aladin Jallali. To each their own, right? But considering they were only dating 8 months and Laura’s son Liam strongly disapproved, fans weren’t wrong to be skeptical. Liam warned us that Laura wasn’t great at choosing healthy relationships and boy, was he right.
It was a little surprise to
almost all of us that they broke up not long after the wedding. Aladin accused her of catfishing him and cheating. Laura accused him of using her for money and blamed the show for their break up. The tell all was a damn trainwreck to say the least. I could have told you these two would have issues the second she threw her vibrator away for him. But I wasn’t expecting this level of drama!
I’m just going to say it – I miss Meghan Edmonds on Real Housewives of Orange County. I know she was a polarizing housewife for fans, but I always enjoyed her. Let us never forget that she was instrumental in exposing super-villain Brooks Ayers’ alleged cancer scam. And she notoriously got under Shannon Beador’s very thin skin over a charity event.
But it’s an understatement to say that times have changed. After a contentious split from husband Jim Edmonds, Meghan has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Looks like the marriage blew up after Jim was caught engaging in inappropriate text messages with another woman. From there, it spiraled with allegations that Jim cheated with the nanny. Then he called the cops on Meghan one night. He promptly got coronavirus and started dating a new woman, who is all over his social media. Oh, and did I mention he and Meghan supposedly had a threesome with this woman? Considering he’s fine now, he’s a hard one to feel sympathy for. Sorry, not sorry!
Leah McSweeney has already made quite the splash as a freshman housewife on Real Housewives of New York. She was introduced to us as a friend of Tinsley Mortimer but Leah has made plenty of her own friends. Despite a rough start, Leah has bonded with Dorinda Medley. According to Leah in the latest episode, she “keeps it real”. Luann de Lesseps dropped the Countess act and showed up at Leah’s apartment with food when she was under the weather. Leah claimed kindred spirits with Lu due to their past with drinking and I can actually see that. Even the notoriously bristly Ramona Singer has seemed to take a shine to Leah. Go figure.So it looks like the cast is really taking to Leah’s approachable yet outspoken persona.
But Leah doesn’t just speak her mind when she’s on RHONY. She hosts her own podcast, Improper Etiquette, and was a contributing columnist for Penthouse magazine. We previously reported that Leah has made some controversial statements in the past. But instead of an apology tour, Leah is defending herself and what she said.
