The Real Housewives of Orange County sure are squeezing as much out of this Lake Arrowhead trip as they can, huh? In no year other than 2020 would a non-international cast trip featuring only four of the ‘Wives get stretched out for three episodes. Just imagine the quick Season 6 jaunt to San Antonio lasting that long. Because Lake Arrowhead is basically the equivalent of that, just with fewer Gretchen Christine Beaute handbags.
This trip has thrown Braunwyn Windham-Burke for a loop. She calls her BFF Shari from her hotel room to vent about the “anti-Braunwyn campaign” the other ‘Wives seem to be on. And sure, you can argue that Braunwyn is being paranoid. Except that at that very moment, plenty of anti-Braunwyn gossip is being thrown around the house by her cast mates. Kelly Dodd calls her a “Debbie downer.” Gina Kirschenheiter says she came in “nervous and aggressive.” So is she really that wrong that an anti-Braunwyn campaign is happening?
What’s the most dire way to kick off a charter? Oh, I’d say without a deckhand. Or better yet, without a chef! And that’s exactly the predicament the Below Deck gang finds themselves in following Shane Coopersmith‘s firing and Rachel Hargrove walking off the boat. One of those exits was entirely expected. The other was absolutely not. But either way, they both leave Captain Lee Rosbach down two crew members and scrambling just hours before the season’s fourth charter.
For obvious reasons, this is a terrible position to be stuck in. Because, sure, you may be able to get through a single charter with one less deckhand. But there’s no way any yacht survives without a chef. Who’s going to make the food? Unlike other seasons in the Below Deck universe, there’s no stew-turned-secret chef to miraculously step up and save the day. And the morning of the charter, Lee can’t even seem to get the yacht staffing agency on the line for help.
The new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is finally picking up some steam! Porsha Williams is still on the frontlines of justice advocating against systemic racism. We LOVE to see it. However, back in the group, some early drama is starting to form. Drew Sidora made her debut last week, and she was immediately disliked by Kenya Moore. What did she do to get on Kenya’s bad side already? This feels premeditated.
The other new face on the scene is LaToya Ali, and she’s quite the thirsty thing. She doesn’t care for Drew, she’s becoming super fast friends with Kenya, and she has the weirdest marriage arrangement. Yup, she can stay. Fresh faces that make an impact is what this show needs, and it finally feels like we got just that. These girls have potential to be mainstays on the show for many years to come. Let’s see what they get into next!
On last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance more couples begin their journey, while others are still preparing for their turn. I honestly can’t wait for the shit show to unfold. It’s only a matter of time before these people start showing their true personalities and intentions. Red flags are waving in the wind and tempers are ready to boil over. Something tells me things are about to get very interesting.
Julia pushes Brandon to confront his parents yet again. After meeting Jovi‘s mom, Yara feels even more uncomfortable. Andrew hopes to get his French fiancée; Amira to the U.S. Hazel Cagalitan is surprised by Tarik Myers‘s living conditions. Let’s get straight to the 90 Day Fiance recap!
Things are getting weirder and more dramatic this week for our favorite Life After Lockup couples. Are these people even capable of having a happy ending? It seems like they’re destined for turmoil for as long as they choose to be together. Amber’s return caught me entirely off guard, and now her prison wife Puppy is getting released. Can they even make things work on the outside? The bigger question is what role (if any) will creepy Vince play in their lives?
Another Life After Lockup couple that’s about to be tested again is Andrea Edwards & Lamar Jackson. It’s never smooth sailing for this couple. Lamar’s choice to encourage their daughter to keep secrets from her mother is going to bite him hard. It’s only a matter of time before Andrea learns the truth and loses her mind. Speaking of losing something, will Shawn ever locate Destine? He still has $50,000 on the line, and her disappearance could cost him.
These post quarantine episodes of Southern Charm are really turning up the drama. Kathryn Dennis is being forced to face the music for her actions has been oh so sweet. It’s about time. Seeing Leva Bonaparte and Danni Baird holding her accountable gives hope for the future of this show. Leva in particular has been such a renewed vibe to the group that is needed in 2020.
The biggest drama in the group right now though has to be about Madison LeCroy & Austen Kroll’s relationship. They FINALLY called it quits after the most toxic back and forth cycle since Kathryn & Thomas Ravenel. Do we think it’s for good? However, one thing is for certain. John Pringle is lurking and waiting for the perfect time to make his move on Madison.
Once a year, something exciting happens in Utah. As January wraps its icy hand around the state, celebrities descend on Park City for the Sundance Film Festival. For two weeks, the state most known for religion becomes the epicenter of the entertainment industry, with A-list stars and indie up-and-comers converging for an endless parade of premieres, parties and Park City moments. And this week, we get to experience it all through the fabulous lens of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
As a native Utahn, Sundance truly was the most fun I had all year. Every year of college, my friends and I would make a staycation out of it, renting a hotel suite in Park City and spending the weekend strolling Main Street and meeting celebs and Bravolebrities alike. In fact, Sundance was the very first time I ever encountered a Housewife in real life. Over the years, my BFFs and I met everyone from Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley to the Shahs of Sunset and the Vanderpump Rules gang. In fact, my most epic Sundance stories involve both Harry Styles and one particular A-list actor who shall remain nameless. But those are stories for another day. Let’s get into the recap, shall we?
What’s the best way of escaping the horrors of a global pandemic ravaging the entire planet? Why, going on a vacation, of course! So this week, the Real Housewives of Orange County pack up and head off to Lake Arrowhead for a much-needed girls’ trip full of bonding, face masks and arguing over whether Black lives matter! (Which, they absolutely do, for the record.) Well, not all the ‘Wives. Because for some, the coronavirus had already caught up before they could make their getaway to the lake.
Last week’s Real Housewives of Orange County ended with the news that one of Shannon Beador‘s twins had tested positive for coronavirus. Which obviously sent the veteran ‘Wife into a full-blown panic lockdown. And now, Emily Simpson can’t go on the cast trip either because she too has tested positive. Her symptoms are mild — she doesn’t even have a fever — and she can’t pinpoint where she caught it, but she’ll be quarantined with her family until further notice.
