Congratulations are in order for the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Dina Manzo. She recently revealed that she and longtime David Cantin are engaged. She actually shared that they got engaged twice and they are actually both rocking rings. So does this mean that Dina is a wife once again? She hasn’t confirmed, but that could be the case.
At this point, almost every Instagram caption references Drake’s summer hit “In My Feelings.” Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi and Lala Anthony asked if KeKe loved them in their Instagram captions this week.
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Kenya Moore and Shamea Morton showed off their growing baby bumps. Meanwhile PorshaWilliams showed off her new boo Dennis McKinley with a cute photo.
Even though Dina Manzo is done with Real Housewives of New Jersey, she still has love for the Bravo network. Along with other current and former Housewives, Dina appeared on Watch What Happens Live while the show filmed a week of episodes in Los Angeles.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Dina on Bravo, which makes sense since she moved to California, but if you thought there was something different about her appearance and you couldn’t quite place it, you weren’t wrong. Dina tweeted about a recent cosmetic procedure after the Watch What Happens Live episode aired.
With Watch What Happens Live taping in Los Angeles all week, it was a guarantee that Real Housewives cast members from the past and present would show up and take a lot of photos together. The Los Angeles taping meant that Housewives and alums from Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed up in droves.
Original Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (obviously), Jeana Keough, and Lauri Peterson showed up for a taping along with Kelly Dodd, Gretchen Rossi, Jill Zarin, Dina Manzo (who lives in California now), Eileen Davidson, and NeNe Leakes among others.
Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was packed with (reality) star power. Andy Cohen had Dorinda Medley on as his featured guest and 31 other Bravolebrities rang the doorbell before making surprise appearances.
Since the episode was taped in Los Angeles, it was mostly cast members from the Bravo shows that take place in California: Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Real Housewives of Orange County, but plenty of other notable Bravo personalities showed up. It was a really fun episode to watch, but the 31 extra guests definitely took away from Dorinda’s time in the spotlight- at least in my opinion.
With so many great reality shows back with new episodes this week and others that are filming for the next season, it makes sense that a lot of reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.
New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer finally cut her signature hair, so of course she shared a photo of getting all glammed up with her new look. Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels shared a photo of her hair and makeup team getting her ready to throw shade during some on-camera interviews this season. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador also posted a photo of her glam squad in action. Southern Charm star Shep Rose shared a photo of he and Whitney Sudler-Smith in front of a green screen in between shooting some commentary on the current season.
Ahead of yesterday’s Super Bowl game, Keeping up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner announced the arrival of her daughter. Kylie gave birth to her baby girl with Travis Scott on February 1st and shared a heartfelt message to her fans explaining why she kept her pregnancy a secret (and it wasn’t because she was Kim‘s surrogate as some speculated). She also shared a video of her pregnancy journey, featuring her close friends sharing their thoughts along the way. After watching the video, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo decided to weigh in with her two cents on a twenty year having a baby.
Kylie’s message to fans on Instagram was posted yesterday afternoon. She shared, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.
Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.
