Real Housewives of Orange County stars past and present can’t stop commenting on the antics of fellow castmate Braunwyn Windham-Burke. And who could blame them? Braunwyn somehow finds herself in the news every other day. She’s either interviewing about her many storylines, or she’s constantly getting her picture taken while she is out and about.
OG housewife, Vicki Gunvalson, called out Braunwyn for not spending time with her children when photos surfaced of her making out with her new girlfriend at the beach. Hey, at least the kids have dad Sean Burke and several nannies there for them. Current RHOC housewife, Kelly Dodd, made it no secret she believes Braunwyn plans for these photos. During an episode of the show, Kelly called out Braunwyn for using a BLM rally as a photo op. And now Kelly is hinting Braunwyn is at it again.
The baby updates keep on coming from former and current Vanderpump Rules stars alike. Stassi Schroeder was the first pregnancy pact member to have a baby. She recently welcomed daughter Hartford into the world. Lala Kent also has a daughter on the way, and is already planning on having her second child. Brittany Cartwright’s son, Jax Jr., will also arrive shortly. Scheana Marie isn’t a member of the pact, but she will be having her baby this year as well.
That leaves two OG stars left, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute. Neither are pregnant yet, but Katie shared she and Tom Schwartz are on the baby bandwagon and trying to conceive. Katie pretty much already mothers Tom, so she’ll be able to handle a baby just fine. Kristen hasn’t been as vocal about motherhood, but she finally made an update on her plans and if a baby could be in her future.
The newest member of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, has had quite a hard time during her freshman season. At first, her life seemed all fun and games. Elizabeth shopped for designer clothes, treated herself to a Ferrari, and bought over priced kale salad mix from Gelson’s (which is quite yummy by the way). But then we learned Elizabeth was going through a nasty divorce. On top of that, she dropped a major bomb that she had grown up in a religious cult and was abused.
There was even more drama when Elizabeth caused confusion regarding her relationship with her boyfriend, Jimmy Juarez. Elizabeth kept changing her story on whether or not they were sleeping together. When confronted, Elizabeth was unable to clarify was because her divorce wasn’t finalized. This prompted Braunwyn Windham-Burke to hire a private investigator to dig up some dirt. Now it seems Elizabeth might be dishing out some payback to Braunwyn regarding her own personal issues.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City started off with a bang and has been on a roll ever since. The cast is the right group of people to revive a stale and formulaic franchise. Everyone on the show has been up front with their lives. This has been a welcome change from some of the other series. Namely, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where they only focus on picking on one person for an entire season to distract from the real drama.
Jen Shah was open about essentially paying for her friends. Her staff are the only ones around as her husband is gone most of the time. Mary Cosby talked about the path to marrying her step-grandfather and running a church. Meredith Marks’ marriage is falling apart every episode. Whitney Rose discussed finding her true love, which included breaking up two marriages to get there. That authenticity is what makes this franchise so great. But the real “pioneer” of the show that has been getting noticed is the lovely Heather Gay.
Real Housewives of New York star, Sonja Morgan, has kept herself quite busy with self-improvements since the latest season wrapped. Fans had noticed that Sonja was a bit out of sorts during season twelve of RHONY. Sure, Sonja is known for over-partying, but she didn’t quite look her normal-self either. So, Sonja decided to remedy the situation.
Since the show wrapped, Sonja got a liquid nose job, and a lower face lift and neck lift. Thankfully Sonja’s finished look was amazing, and did not turn out to be the usual housewife plastic surgery disaster. Sonja also worked some internal magic, giving herself an extra glow to her skin. She took lots of vitamins, and relieved herself three to four times a day. Good thing she has the extra time! Amid all that work, Sonja also made time during this Christmas season to help others as well.
Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough go of it this year. Back in March, the restaurant industry suffered from massive shut downs due to the pandemic. Many restaurants decided to stay open for take out during that time, but Lisa had opted to keep SUR, Pump, TomTom, and Villa Blanca closed instead. Those who had cravings for fried goat cheese balls or Pumptini’s would have to wait. Unfortunately, Lisa ended up having to close down Villa Blanca for good.
Gradually, restrictions were lifted and restaurants were allowed to have outdoor dining. The friend goat cheese balls were being served once again as SUR reopened, and Lisa was back in action. Cast members Charli Burnett, Dayna Kathan, and Danica Dow also returned. Shortly after SUR reopened, Pump finally opened their doors as well. Things were back on the up and up for Lisa. However, with covid cases increasing, new lockdowns have been implemented in Los Angeles County. Will Lisa decide to shut down her restaurants once again?
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold.
Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall.
Even though the latest season of Vanderpump Rules has yet to start filming, Lala Kent has been all over the news as of late. Lala recently announced her pregnancy, and she’s having a girl! Now she has officially joined the VPR baby boom with her friends Stassi Schroeder and Brittany Cartwright who are also both expecting. It’s too bad camera’s aren’t rolling to capture Lala and the gang as they go through the ups and downs of pregnancy.
If cameras were rolling however, Stassi wouldn’t be there. She got fired this year for racist behavior, along with Kristen Doute. With a good portion of the OG’s gone, the question remains if Lala or the rest of the group will want to come back to the show as well. And will being pregnant determine Lala’s decision on whether she wants to be a part of Pump Rules next season?
