Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.
I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.
NeNe Leakes is short on friends in the current Real Housewives of Atlanta cast. However, she does seem to be on great terms with RHOA alum Phaedra Parks. NeNe said she wanted Phaedra to return. Several times.
Clearly, she’d take Phaedra over her ex-bestie Cynthia Bailey. NeNe denounced Cynthia to “coworker status” after the season finale antics. NeNe is also done with Friend of the Housewives Tanya Sam. Or is it the other way around? After giving Tanya hell all season long, their friendship fell apart. So what happens when NeNe, Phaedra, Cynthia, and Tanya all end up in the same place? They take pictures
to get attention. Separately, of course.
Real Housewives of Potomac is back for Season 4. Most of the ladies are at their peak petty right out of the gate. Mainly, Gizelle Byant and Karen Huger. Gizelle persuaded her daughters to bake cookies for a grieving Karen. Gizelle bombarded Karen with a phone call when she was a few minutes away from her Great Falls home. Obviously, she wanted to catch the Grand Dame off guard while she was on camera.
Karen wasn’t going to fall for that though. During Gizelle’s first call, Karen told her not to come over. When she called again, Karen said that her mysterious friend Matt Byars would meet her at the door instead. In response, Gizelle refused to deal with Matt, who she dislikes for no discernible reason. So what was Gizelle thinking durring what is bound to be labeled as cookiegate?
I don’t want to jinx it, but I have a good feeling about Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14. Sure, they brought back everyone from the painfully dull Season 13. However, social media is giving me hope.
The RHOC ladies headed to Florida to spend time in Miami and Key West. They all shared photos, but none of them include the rumored new cast member Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Does this mean she’s not a part of the show? Or are they just keeping the new addition private while they film?
For a long time, Kim D’s fashion show was a Real Housewives of New Jersey staple. Who could forget Teresa Giudice chasing Danielle Staub around that country club? However, Kim D and Teresa are done and there’s a new fashion show to attend.
The entire Real Housewives of New Jersey cast showed up for the Envy by Melissa Gorga fashion show. Well, almost the entire cast. In not-so-shocking news, Danielle was not there. However, her status as a “cast member” is perpetually unclear.
On Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss is all about business. She is always launching (and talking about) a new project. Does she ever take time to herself? Well, it is very rare, but it does happen.
Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker headed to Thailand to celebrate their five-year wedding anniversary. That is pretty much an eternity in reality TV years. They probably won’t be able to vacation on their own for a while since they are hoping to have another child via surrogate in the near future.
The Vanderpump Rules reunion episodes are always a highlight for fans. The cast never disappoints when it comes to rehashing their old drama. And, creating new drama, of course. They all get dressed to the nines just to argue for hours on end.
I could never imagine getting all glammed up just to argue with my frienemies. Then again, they are getting paid to film a TV show. We have seen clips from the reunion and heard warnings about how awful it was from Jax Taylor. Before tonight’s episode airs, check out some pictures from the taping.
After a whole year of gossip and vague denials, Scheana Marie finally admitted that she hooked up with Carl Radke. Pretty much every cast member from both Vanderpump Rules and Summer House commented on the tryst.
Former Summer House cast member Stephen McGee is the one who originally claimed that Scheana and Carl had sex. Then, Kristen Doute concurred that it did happen. Scheana’s own mom said that it was just a kiss. Summer House alum Lauren Wirkus negated the rumor, which is pretty awkward considering her very public crush on Carl. Finally, Carl and Scheana joined Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live to set the record straight.
