What started as an All-Star, all-winners season of Survivor has morphed into something even much more fascinating through three episodes. “Survivor: Winners At War” could have easily been called “Survivor: Old School vs. New School,” as much of what we has witnessed thus far seems to focus on the power struggle between those that have helped shape the game in recent seasons versus those that defined the game to begin with. It’s riveting, and at times frustrating TV, and I’d say that after just nine days in the game, one side seems to be pulling ahead.
As I do at the beginning of every recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s episode of Survivor: Winners at War. If you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap. It is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Sadly, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 is coming to a close. The ladies really came through for us this season. Well, most of them did, anyway. Dolores Catania and Melissa Gorga, I’m yawning in your direction. Neither of you deserves that second seat on the reunion couches, but I guess that’s seniority for you.
Danielle Staub brought more to the season and she’s not even an actual cast member. During last week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey episode, Melissa told Danielle that none of the Housewives want to hang out with her anymore. She even stretched the truth, indicating that Teresa Giudice was one of those people. Meanwhile, Teresa had been blindly standing up for Danielle. Well, in response, a scorned Danielle shared that the boutique owner told her to pull on Margaret Josephs‘ hair and that Teresa encouraged the idea. Initially, it seemed like Danielle was lying, yet again. However, we were all shocked by the flashback footage of Teresa giggling while she told Danielle “Do it, do it.”
Many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers assumed that Teddi Mellencamp would name her third child “Kyle” because, well, there are many reasons. Plus, the name is gender-neutral.
Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave welcomed their third child together last night, a baby girl. Edwin also has another daughter from a previous relationship.
Stassi Schroeder has been living her best life lately. Beau Clark, her sweet and funny boyfriend, popped the question in July of 2019. Oh, and he slipped that ring on Stassi’s finger in the most romantic of places–a cemetery. Well, that is pretty romantic to Stassi.
The couple is marrying in October in Rome, Italy. Stassi and Beau are so in synch that they even agreed to sign a prenup. And Stassi is part of a pregnancy pact with Vanderpump Rules besties Katie Maloney, Brittany Cartwright, and Lala Kent. Can you imagine how dramatic it would be with this squad all rocking baby bumps at the same time?
Once again, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members through me for a loop with their reunion outfits. What was everyone thinking? Melissa Gorga stuck to her signature look: a plunging jumpsuit with a slicked-back ponytail and absolutely killed it. But other than Melissa, the looks were… ummm… questionable. To say the least.
Usually, the Real Housewives reunions have a theme when it comes to the dress code, with the ladies dressing in the designated color palette. I have no idea what direction the cast was given this season. None of these looks go together. At all. Yes, there are some sequins, but that really is the norm when it comes to a Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.
The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 reunion was famous for the Bethenny Frankel vs. Carole Radziwill feud. At one point, Bethenny went on and on about Carole ditching her for Tinsley Mortimer and traveling around the world together.
In response, Carole threw Tinsley under the bus, clarifying that they weren’t actually close. And, obviously, Tinsley seemed hurt and surprised. Since then, Carole claimed that no one on the show ever wanted to film with Tins. Clearly, there’s no love lost there.
For many years, there were stories about Carole Radiziwill and Andy Cohen’s close friendship. Former Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher even blamed getting fired from the show on the bond between the two friends.
Even after Carole left Real Housewives of New York, Andy answered questions about staying in touch with Carole still. Well, apparently these two weren’t even friends.
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion episodes were cringe-worthy, to say the least. Vicki Gunvalson yelling “this is my show,” when she wasn’t even a full-time cast member and she had nothing to do with the show’s development back in the day, was just so humiliating and embarrassing.
Vicki claimed that she would never return to RHOC unless she was a full-time cast member again. Well, it’s unclear if Vicki got another low ball offer and actually walked away or if she was just straight up fired, but she’s gone and it’s clear someone was tired of her antics. Vicki announced her departure from the show via Instagram before Season 15 filming started up. Before Vicki’s humiliating final moments on the show, she was doing what she could to restore the show to its former glory. Allegedly, she asked Heather Dubrow to return to “her” show following Season 13.
