Last season on Southern Charm, Austen Kroll‘s female costars thought he might be turning into the new Shep Rose,otherwise known as “Shep 2.0.” Those are very big shoes to fill. But once Austen seemed to settle into long-term unemployment and mess things up with costar Chelsea Meissner, who often picked up the tab on their dates, it looked like a good fit.
It seemed like there might be a delay with Southern Charm Season 6 because of Thomas Ravenel’smany legal issues. He even sued Bravo with the hope of getting his name and custody issues with Kathryn Dennis wiped from the show. It’s unclear how much Thomas will be mentioned or alluded to, but Kathryn does mention her fear of becoming a single mom in a scene from the Southern Charm trailer.
Southern Charm has one of the most interesting casts of any reality show-and the stars actually hang out together in the offseason! An exception to the chumminess of the cast is former Charmer Thomas Ravenel. He has been vehement in his anger towards the show since last year and now the litigious Mr. Ravenel has filed more court documents related to Southern Charm-and even claims the show has ruined his reputation. Yes, you read that right-ruined his reputation!
Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.
In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.
Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.
When Kathryn Dennis shared a Thanksgiving photo with Austen Kroll, my first thought was “Wait. These two are friends?” Yes, I know that they are both cast members on Southern Charm, but have we ever seen them interact onscreen? No, not that I recall.
It makes sense that these two would become good friends through this shared experience of being on the same reality TV show. Even so, it still feels so random to see them hanging out together, let alone on Thanksgiving. That’s where my head was at. However, one Instagram user had a completely different reaction to the photo. Someone had the nerve to insinuate that Kathryn is pregnant. Yikes. Yes, that happened.
It’s safe to assume that pretty much anyone reading this is thankful for reality television. This gratitude is probably applicable to reality TV Instagram posts as well. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebrations and charity work.
There are some reality TV Thanksgiving gatherings that I wish were filmed. First and foremost, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, and Stassi’s man Beau Clark all spent Thanksgiving together. Stassi even joked on Instagram, “Why weren’t the cameras here?” Seriously though. That is a great question. Exes hanging out and actually being friends will forever fascinate me.
Speaking of exes, JWOWW and her ex Roger Mathewsspent time with family on Thanksgiving. What is going on with the two of them? Are they just keeping it cordial for the sake of the kids? Are they repairing their romantic relationship? Either way, there were no smiles in the Instagram posts.
Why is it never recorded when Housewives from different shows hang out? The cast crossover would make for such a great show. No, I do not think there are “too many” Real Housewives shows. I would never ever think that. The more Housewives, the better.
Even though my ideal spin-off show does not exist, the Housewives do take lots of photos and videos when they get together. It is almost like we are watching an all stars edition of Real Housewives. No need to look through everyone’s accounts though. All the photos are in this week’s Instagram Roundup.
