Even though Dallas is far from the tundra, no one can blame Stephanie Hollman for escaping the winter for a family vacation in the Bahamas. The Bahamas sounds like the ideal winter location in all honesty. Stephanie, her husband Travis Hollman, their two sons, and other family members.
The Real Housewives of Dallas star shared plenty of photos from their time in the Bahamas. Unfortunately, we all don’t have the opportunity to ditch the winter weather for a nice, warm beach. However, we can live through Stephanie’s pictures from their family vacation and just imagine that we are enjoying the sunshine as well.
On last night’s Real Housewives of New JerseyDanielle Staub finally got her happily ever after…at least for a few months. The ladies wake up to the beauty of Bimini, and Teresa Giudice and brother Joe Gorga are finally getting along and bonding over some dumbbells. How appropriate! Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno are also in tropical bliss. Melissa Gorga has foregone the weights for tanning oil to prep for Danielle’s bride squad photo shoot. Everyone is still reeling from Danielle’s comments about soon-to-be husband’s Marty Cafferty’s children. Margaret warns Joe to tread lightly if the guys take Marty out for some pre-ceremony bro shenanigans. Teresa calls Dolores Catania who isn’t the least bit sad she’s not included in nemesis Danielle’s big day. After hearing the previous evening’s dinner drama, she wonders if Danielle will even make it down the aisle.
Danielle is micromanaging her photo shoot, and I feel terrible for her beautiful daughters. The former housewife is disappointed that her tribe of bridesmaids isn’t constantly at her beck and call. Marge is concerned about being a girl that loves cheese in a group of skinny Minnies, and Danielle is peeved when Margaret refuses to take off her lacy pants. Thankfully she’s distracted by her desire to have a Baywatch strut photo and begins screaming out orders for that.
Last night we received a small reprieve from all the Gorga in-fighting on Real Housewives of New Jersey While Teresa Giudice still carries resentment for her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, she has honed on Melissa’s volunteer mouthpiece Jackie Goldschneider. In case you didn’t hear her the first fifteen times she said it, Jackie isn’t scared of Tre. Teresa isn’t without her own henchmen thanks to loyal Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub, whose diva demands are finally making the show watchable, IMHO. Margaret Josephs “can’t even” with the bridezilla, which sucks for her since she’s the Matron of Honor. I am digging on Marge, Junior this season, for sure!
Margaret is hosting a brunch on her Studio 54 set in hopes of bringing back those positive vibes from last season…or two seasons ago…or five…wait, she just wants croissants. Melissa and Jackie are stewing over Tre’s ridiculous claims that wives should control their husbands about all things non-penitentiary related. Tensions are running high as Teresa arrives. Dolores has her friend’s back, but she’s hoping for a drama-free event as she’s really enjoying Melissa these days. The women joke about Danielle’s stripper fueled journey to monogamy, and Dolores cringes over being in the same room with her nemesis.
She is making her name on this show, calling Teresa out, and sharing her honest opinions. Teresa was all namaste post “camp,” but will the hothead we met during the early Real Housewives of New Jersey seasons return for tonight’s episode? It sure seems like it.
It’s starting to get cold in the Garden State. No one can blame Margaret Josephs for taking a break from New Jersey weather and heading to the Bahamas. The Real Housewife and her husband Joe Benignoheaded to the island for some quality time with each other and some friends. They even hung out with Chase Chrisley. I have no clue if they’re friends and I just was not aware of it. Or maybe they just bumped into him and took some photos together.
Nevertheless, photos from the Real Housewives of New Jerseystar living her best life on vacation made me pretty jealous. I’m sitting here wearing a sweatshirt over a sweater as I type this up.
Hopefully, the ladies step it up next season and restore the show to its former glory. It’s unclear what exactly is happening for Season 9, but one major plot point is clear: the ladies take a cast trip to the Bahamas.
