We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out this links from some of our favorite sites in the August 26, 2019 edition of Monday Morning Tea.

After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimes all united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.
It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.
There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.
Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub showed off her bikini body while enjoying some time on a boat. Teen Mom star Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels showcased her baby bump in a swimming pool.
Is it even Father’s Day, if it’s not documented on social media? Apparently not if you’re a reality TV star.
Your favorite (and least favorite) reality TV stars were all about the family time this week with their Instagram posts.
Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky took their daughter Sophia Umansky to explore Washington, D.C. before she goes off to college. Kylie Jenner and her newborn daughter Stormi Webster enjoyed a vacation. Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham vacationed in Fiji with her daughter Sophia Abraham. Jenelle Evans’ sons went fishing with her husband David Eason. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga celebrated her son Joey’s birthday with her husband Joe Gorga and their other children. Fredrik Eklund celebrated his birthday with husband Derek Kaplan and their twin babies. Scott Disick shared a photo with his oldest son Mason Disick.
I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.
Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.
There is just so much reality TV action to keep up with, from the shows themselves, to the latest headlines in between seasons, and then there are all of the social media posts. No need to worry about keeping up with the Instagram posts though. This week’s Instagram Roundup has you covered with all of the best, weirdest, and most interesting reality TV star photos from the week.
There were plenty of family friendly photos this week. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks shared a very real photo with her daughter Palmer. Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and (pregnant) Catherine Giudici Lowe posed for an adorable pic with their son Samuel. Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovsky hung out with his dog and his son Shai. Janelle Evans shared a photo of husband David Eason with their family. Princess Love showed off her baby bump at the six month mark of her pregnancy.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
