Most people like to lay low following a massive scandal so they can regroup, reflect, and ultimately, reinvent themselves for the better. However, former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder is just not one of those people with (seemingly) staged paparazzi photos and early pregnancy announcements. What racism scandals? As a result of her racially offensive behavior, she got dropped by many brands. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her agent and publicist cut ties with her. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Then, she hired a crisis management team.
But at least, she has one good thing going on right now. Stassi and Beau Clark are expecting their first child in January
and have been using this news to deflect from the Faith Stowers scandal and build up some goodwill.
Congratulations to former Summer House cast member Ashley Wirkus. Ashley and her husband Brad McAtee just welcomed their first child together!
And, of course, it was a family affair, with Ashley’s twin sister Lauren Wirkus present for the birth.
Apparently mirror selfies are still going strong. New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer recently posted one with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. So it’s safe to assume that these two are “on again.” Real Housewives of Orange County new girl Gina Kirschenheiter also shared a photo of post-glam session look.
Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Jamie Jason showed off her bikini body with a mirror selfie of her own. And then there’s Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent, the queen of the mirror selfie, serving up a super casual (and most likely super expensive) look.
Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.
Vicki Gunvalson hung out with her man Steve Lodge in Huntington Beach, California while her daughter Briana Culberson, son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and grandsons hung out with her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson in North Carolina.
Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks took her two sons Ayden and Dylan to an Atlanta Braves game- all decked out in red, white, and blue in honor of the holiday.
Every season, Summer House runs into filming difficulties. It is very much expected for them to be less than welcomed by the Hamptons residents.
Something unexpected that happened is five cast members getting cut. Danielle Olivera and Amit Neuman had no shot at coming back for Season 3. They were just too nice and normal to make a mark on this show. They had no story line and no one is at all surprised that they got fired. However, it is pretty shocking that Stephen McGee, Lauren Wirkus, and Ashley Wirkus will not be on the show anymore. Now there are rumors about two possible replacements for next season.
After rumors of a Summer House casting shakeup that would see a majority of the originals out for season 3, Lauren and Ashley Wirkus have confirmed that they’re moving on from the show.
“Much has been speculated about the Summer House cast over the last few days. Regretfully, we can confirm that we will not be full-time cast members for the third season. We depart Summer House with nothing but good wishes to those at Bravo, and to the cast and crew for helping to create life-lasting memories over the last two years,” a statement released by Lauren and Ashley explains.
It’s surprising that Summer House is about to film Season 3 (for many reasons). Every single year the neighbors, bars, and restaurants near the house have objected to the cast and crew filming. Apparently third time isn’t the charm because there are even more issues going into Season 3.
Oh the poor Hamptons. First Summer House invades, much to everyone’s dismay, then Real Housewives Of New Jersey shows up.
Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker attended the Bella White Party (which previously has both RHOBH and Farrah Abraham infamy) where they partied alongside Summer House castmates Stephen McGee and The Wirkus Twins. Well, at least Teresa Giudice remained in Jersey.
