Sonja Morgan Ramona Singer Mexico Real Housewives of New York RHONY

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Yes, we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New York cast travel to Mexico a million times at this point, but to quote Sonja Morgan, “We always have the best time.” Seriously though. The viewers enjoy it, the cast goes all out, and in all honesty, the other Real Housewives shows should take notes. This cast always delivers.

Yes, it would be great to switch up the RHONY cast trip locations, but the ladies always pull through in Mexico. Who could forget Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into that bush? What about Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s naked heart to heart in the pool? There have been so many classic RHONY moments south of the border. I am sure there will be even more iconic scenes from the Season 12 Mexico trip.

Below Deck Captain Lee Rosbach 

How did Simone Mashile get hired for Season 8 of Below Deck? She doesn’t bring much in terms of storyline and she’s incapable of doing her job as Second Stew. She can’t make iced coffee, open a wine bottle, cut a fruit, or carry dishes to the table. For some reason, her “service” abilities are completely lacking. And, no, I’m not referencing her (alleged) lack of reciprocity during that post-vomit hookup with Tanner Sterback.

Obviously, Simone isn’t qualified for the Second Stew role. To be honest, I don’t even think she should be Third Stew. It’s so funny how so many viewers misjudged Third Stew Courtney Skippon’s love for luxury and just assumed she would have zero work ethic. Meanwhile, Courtney is actually good at her job. Who would have thought?

LeeAnne Locken Kary Brittingham

LeeAnne Locken is the perfect Housewife villain. The Real Housewives of Dallas star has been stirring things up on the show for four seasons. LeeAnne can go from to sticky sweet to stick you in the back with an emotional knife in three seconds. You never quite know what is going to set her off–which is part of the fun–and part of the terrifying carnival thrill ride that is LeeAnne.

This year, newbie Housewife  Kary Brittingham has raised LeeAnne’s ire for some reason. The relationship between the two started turning sour during the casts’ trip to Kary’s beautiful family home in Mexico, with LeeAnne seemingly ungrateful at every turn. On the current cast trip to Thailand, things have gone from bad to worse, with Kary and D’Andra Simmons’ cruel ribbing of LeeAnne’s L’Infinity dress at dinner. And in response, LeeAnne  demonstrated some very unseemly behavior–taking ugly digs at Kary’s cultural background behind her back.

Below Deck Captain Lee Rosbach

The Simone Mashile and Tanner Sterback hookup on Below Deck last week brings to mind lowered expectations and the smell of stale vomit.  It was out of left field that Tanner would pursue Simone since previously said that he was wary of crushes.  Perhaps after Chief Stew Kate Chastain turned him down, Tanner chose to act on the only willing participant in close proximity.

Interestingly, this hookup completely overshadowed the fact that Courtney Skippon and Brian de Saint Pern’s relationship has progressed to sharing a bunk for the night. But, Brian is not one to kiss and tell so it’s a complete non-story.  In contrast, Tanner has no bones about sharing the details of his physical encounter with Simone.

Kelly and Shannon reconnect

It’s obvious that Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd did not make amends filming the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion. They’ve been shading each other left and right ever since.

Recently, Shannon (supposedly) claimed that Rick Leventhal proposed to Kelly with the ring that Jim Bellino gave to his ex-fiancée. Yeah, apparently Jim was engaged to someone other than Alexis Bellino.

RHOC Kelly Dodd Is Having Tax Problems

Real Housewives of Orange County’s Kelly Dodd is joining a long list of other Bravolebrities who have tax problems. The problem is they aren’t paying their taxes. Has Teresa Giudice taught her nothing?

I wonder who is the most hated?  The IRS or Vicki Gunvalson? Either way both are on a mission to get what they want from Kelly.  Vicki wants relevancy.  The IRS wants their money. However, Vicki and Kelly just made up, but will it last?

Rinna

We’ve all heard the rumors that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is “boring” without Lisa Vanderpump on the show. This is a surprise to no one because, let’s be honest, the show was “boring” for a few seasons after Brandi Glanville left. And, until it got dragged out for far too long, puppygate was actually the most excitement on the show in a while.

Now, LVP’s frienemy Lisa Rinna is strongly implying that Vanderpump was responsible for leaking the rumors. Lisa Vanderpump, leaking a story to the press? She has never done that…

Married To Medicine Recap: Swap Till You Drop

During last night’s episode of Married to Medicine, the group concluded the Cabo trip. While everyone has fun in the sun, drama rears its ugly little head. Jackie and Buffie have another combative moment.

In Cabo San Lucas, the group participates in a wife swap on the beach! Heavenly Kimes  is still angry at Damon Kimes for going to the strip club. Contessa Metcalfe and Scott Metcalfe put on a brave face for the group, but their marriage issues are still apparent. Back in Atlanta, Quad Webb-Luncefords divorce proceedings are closer to the finish line. Let’s get straight into the Married to Medicine recap!
