Meghan King Edmonds is gone but not forgotten. You all know how I loved her on Real Housewives of Orange County and I stand by that opinion. *Insert Tamra Judge yelling “It’s my opinion!” gif*. Anyway, aside from a quick appearance, Meghan has been off RHOC for years now. But she stays in the news just like any current housewife would.
After the never-ending nasty divorce from ex-husband Jim Edmonds, a/k/a, Jimmy Dad Jeans, she found love again. Seems like she was getting her chaotic life back in order but she got coronavirus and split with her man. All in a matter of a few months. But she did find someone new (again) and said she might be relocating back to her hometown of St. Louis. That doesn’t mean the former housewife doesn’t miss her old life, minus a few ex-castmates.
On the bright side, we haven’t been inundated with media featuring the extraness of Braunwyn Windham-Burke in a few weeks. It might be fair to say we all needed a reprieve from her… “antics”. Now that time has come to an end because the Real Housewives of Orange County star is back in the news. I know you’re probably thinking, “what has ‘ol Braunie done this time?” She’s already taken every existing storyline possible and condensed them into one season.
Braunwyn admitted to being an alcoholic and struggled with sobriety on camera. She also came out as a lesbian but did not want to end her twenty-year marriage with husband and statement necklace aficionado, Sean Burke. Braunwyn and Sean remain married, despite Braunwyn not being attracted to men. She even went so far as to say she didn’t want Sean to start dating other women. Speaking of other women, Braunwyn went and got herself a girlfriend, Kris. After five months of pap shots and trying to make a courtship within a marriage work, it seems like Kris has jumped ship.
Veteran Bravo viewers are familiar with former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough’s children. Shane Keough attempted to “find his way” during his teen years. Like his father Matt Keough, Shane was striving to make baseball a part of his career, but his sass mouth was what got him attention on the show. Fans will be able to catch up with Shane when he visits Andy Cohen for the Watch What Happens Live special featuring Bravo kids.
Jeana also had another son, Colton Keough. Colton was “the shy one” who also hoped to follow in his dad’s footsteps. Jeana’s only daughter Kara Keough was a smart, level headed volleyball player who didn’t go the way of other RHOC daughters. Kara went to college and eventually got married to former NFL linebacker, Kyle Bosworth. Together they share a little girl, Decker and were set to welcome a son in April 2020. A heartbreaking loss was suffered after the baby lost oxygen during the birth, changing Kara and Kyle’s life forever. But Kara’s story does not end there, she just added another chapter.
This week Andy Cohen gifted fans with news of a “Bravo Kids” special that will be featured on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. The special includes Gia Giudice, Frankie Catania, Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, and Kairo Whitfield (THANK YOU) from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Avery Singer and Victoria de Lesseps from Real Housewives of New York City, and of course OG kids Briana Culberson and Shane Keough (YES) from Real Housewives of Orange County.
The “kids” featured in this special all grew up on TV and probably had zero say in showing their awkward years on camera for millions of people. So, this could be awesome! While the show features our favorite Bravo kids, there are some noticeable names missing. Yolanda Hadid’s daughters, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are probably too busy being supermodels to show up on WWHL. But what about Kyle Richards’ daughters? Or Lisa Rinna’s? Nene Leakes’ kids? Or Jill Zarin’s daughter? Something tells me they’re dying to be included – and Andy has hinted as much without naming names.
When Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah was arrested on March 30, 2021, it came out of nowhere. Jen is facing federal charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. It is alleged that Jen and her assistant, Stuart Smith, were part of a long-running telemarketing scam. Jen plead not guilty to the charges, as did Stuart.
The newest Housewives franchise was filming Season 2, and it was reported that the RHOSLC cast was in a van on the way to a cast trip. Bravo cameras were rolling when Jen suddenly had to leave. She was supposedly tipped off that she was about to be arrested. Jen told the group that her husband was hospitalized. She asked her aunt to pick her up, and then Jen was arrested on the side of the road.
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
Gosh, we really don’t get to share enough incredibly wonderful news. Long time Real Housewives of Orange County fans remember the good ‘ol days when Vicki Gunvalson and her first face shared the screen with OG Housewife, Jeana Keough. Viewers watched as Jeana navigated her life raising kids in an affluent environment with a husband who was basically checked out. After five seasons on the show, we got to know Jeana’s family pretty well.
After Jeana left RHOC, her children grew up and did their own thing. Her only daughter, Kara Keough married Kyle Bosworth, a former NFL linebacker. Kara and Kyle made Jeana a grandma when she gave birth to her first daughter, Decker Kate Bosworth in 2016. The couple were preparing for kid #2 in April of last year when what can only be described as a horrible tragedy took place. Kara and Kyle lost their newborn son after her delivery suffered a terrible mishap. After enduring the most grueling year of her life, which included her father Matt Keough also passing away, Kara has some incredibly happy news.
There’s no secret that Shannon Beador is not a big fan of David Beador’s new wife, Lesley Cook Beador, and vice versa. The Real Housewives of Orange County star went through a very public divorce with David, and seemingly tried everything, including some unusual couples’ therapy and a vow renewal, to put it back together again. But even that didn’t work.
And David didn’t waste any time dating, which we saw on the show was a huge bummer to Shannon. Now he has a new wife and a new baby with her, and it seems like Shannon cannot stop talking about them. Probably because she’s still bitter about the whole thing, but who could blame her? David, while he’s an expert at munching on chips, he wasn’t so good at being a faithful husband to Shannon.
