Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
In the immortal words of Kyle Cooke, “Summer. Should. Be. Fun.,” and this summer definitely was. Coming off of arguably their best season yet, the cast of Summer House reunited on Wednesday night (May 6) for the Season 4 reunion hosted by Andy Cohen as part of Watch What Happens Live At Home.
Though it only lasted a single hour, the virtual reunion offered no shortage of hot-button issues following the the Housemates’ rave-themed season finale: What’s the status of Luke Gulbranson and Hannah Berner? Did Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard ever get their friendship back on track after an ill-advised attempt at dating in the first half of the season? Has Kyle‘s engagement to Amanda Batula survived the pressure of quarantining together in a tiny New York apartment? Buckle up for the answers to all those questions and more as we break down the biggest moments from the Summer House Season 4 reunion.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the May 5 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.
Nowadays, there are 13,000 cast members on Vanderpump Rules, but the OG drama will always hold a special place in my heart. Remember the simple days when Stassi Schroeder had it out for Scheana Marie for putting sunscreen on Jax Taylor? Truly iconic.
Now, Vanderpump Rules and reality TV at large has evolved into such a major platform. Are you even a reality TV star if you aren’t hawking subscription boxes and teeth whitener on Instgram? Are you even an influencer if you don’t have a podcast? Not these days. Both Stassi and Scheana have podcasts. Stassi did it first, but at this point, pretty much everyone on reality TV has one.
The new Vanderpump Rules cast members, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni criticized Scheana Marie for being “boy crazy.” They’re not the only people gossiping about Schean’s love life though. Then again, this is reality TV, this comes with the territory.
This past summer there were rumors about Scheana hooking up with Shep Rose at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky. There has also been a long-time rumor about Scheana and Carl Radke from Summer House being more than just friends. They’ve copped to making out and hanging out, but it doesn’t seem like they ever actually dated. Scheana cleared up th rumors about her love life in the Bravo universe.
New York Fashion Week was the place to be for reality TV star sightings. Tinsley Mortimer returned to the runway as a model. Real Houswives of New York stars Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, and Dorinda Medley were on hand to support. Sonja even hosted a fashion show of her own.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG Kyle Richards had her first fashion week show. Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Denise Richards had a great time walking in Kyle’s show. On the other hand, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was not happy about her reception at fashion week. She admitted that she cried in response to the criticism about her walk, which is odd since she didn’t cry when Kyle made fun of it on RHOBH last season.
It seems like Southern Charm star Craig Conover is finally over the breakup with Naomie Olindo. Now, I’m just wondering what he’s going to do with that personalized pillow he sewed for Penelope, the daughter he hoped to have with her.
Long before Naomie came into the future, Craig had his sights set on Kathryn Dennis. In fact, he’s the one who actually brought her around during filming for Season 1.
Fortunately Unfortunately for Craig, Shep Rose pulled robbery move and hooked up with Kathryn instead. Eventually, Kathryn had two kids (and dramatic custody hearings) with Thomas Ravenel. And somewhere before and after all that, Kathryn hooked up with a glasses-wearing Whitney Sudler-Smith. But what about Craig? Remember they “got lost” during a cast trip a couple seasons ago? What actually happened then?
The jackhole of the
century year month week goes to BravoCon .Is anyone else still frustrated after attempting to buy BravoCon tickets on Tuesday morning. Did anyone else get there at 9:59 ready to purchase a three-day pass at 10 AM only to find out that they were all purchased by scalpers? Seriously, anyone? Is anyone else still upset about this? Hopefully, it’s not just me.
How many three-day passes did they sell? Three? It seems like no one got them. Or at least that’s how it feels scrolling through Twitter. There is some (alleged) hope to buy a one-day ticket, but that’s bound to be another mess, unfortuantely. What about the resale tickets? That’s not happening either.
