Sometimes it’s fun to go to a wedding. Other times, it just feels like an un-fun obligation to attend. Just imagine the dance floor at a wedding with Dancing With the Stars cast members. That has to be a fun time, right?
Miami was the place to be this week for the reality TV super fans. Lots of your favorite cast members from Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jersey Shore, and The Bachelorette gathered in the Sunshine State. The Xfinity Reality Bar is Miami is the world’s largest bar dedicated to reality television and its fans.
Xfinity Reality Bar is more than just a bar. It’s a reality TV experience designed to cater to the biggest reality television fans. The bar is full of reality TV memorabilia, including the legendary Jersey Shore duck phone.
They thought they were over their exes. They thought they were ready to find love, but they thought wrong. The singles believed that they were on a different dating show, but this is Ex on the Beach Season 2.
What can viewers expect from this second round? The show promises “hotter hookups, more exes than ever, and more scandalous secrets.” Episode One starts off with a masquerade party, but it’s not your average themed party. Soon enough, they will have to unmask the truth about their relationship histories… whether they like it or not.
Romeo returns as the host, prompting Big Brother alum Jozea Flores to remark, “When you see Romeo, you know it ain’t about no love. It’s Ex on the mother f*cking Beach.” That’s right. Whenever Romeo shows up, expect him to stir the pot with some twist in the game.
One by one, we meet each of the “singles” and there are some immediate sparks between a lot of the cast members. There’s The Bachelorette villain Chad Johnson. Will he show everyone his softer side? Or will be the same deli meat-obsessed argumentative brute that Bachelor fans are used to seeing? He is immediately drawn to Big Brother winner Morgan Willett and The Challenge participant Nicole Ramos.
Are You the One? Season 6 cast member Malcolm Drummer sets his sights on Catching Kelce winner Maya Benberry…. and Farrah’s ass. Bad Girls Club: Miami’s Janelle Shanks waxes poetic about being both a bad girl and a dedicated Christian.
Initially, everyone is having a good time…except for Farrah. Right from the jump, Farrah rubs almost every cast member the wrong way and this is before any of her exes show up on the beach. Fire Island cast member Cheyenne Parker is not afraid to stand up and call her out on her diva antics.
And of course, this is just the initial cast. In the first episode alone, three exes arrive and Romeo promises the arrival of an additional single, who cannot be voted out of the house.
Everyone talks a big game about “being over” their ex, but is that really the case? Who is being truthful about their feelings? Are they looking for closure? Do they want to rekindle? Will brand new relationships form? Or are they just there to argue? Buckle up, Ex on the Beach new season Tonight, December 20 at 8/7c only on MTV and it’s going to be one wild ride, starting with its first episode!

The popular U.K. show Ex on the Beach made its United States debut in April 2018. It was everything I didn’t know I needed in a reality TV show. I got to see some of my favorite people from other reality TV shows under one roof. The contestants created endless drama. There were countless twists and turns. And to top it off everyone looks great in bathing suits.
Thankfully, Ex on the Beach will return for Season 2 a month from now. Just like the first season, this season’s cast members bring plenty of drama to the beach.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed some quality time with their kids this week. Kim Zolciak celebrated her daughter Ariana Biermann’s birthday. Former New York Housewife Jill Zarin hung out with her daughter Ally Shapiro. Teresa Giudice supported her daughter Gia Giudice while she cheered at her high school’s football game. Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks let her daughter Palmer play with a Shep Rose bobblehead. Who got that for her?
No one loves sharing photos as much as a proud mom. That’s why it’s not at all surprising that most of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from Mother’s Day. Some of them are moms and others just spent time with their own mothers. Did you even celebrate Mother’s Day if you didn’t post about it on Instagram? Apparently not.
Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks celebrated her first Mother’s Day by rocking matching dresses with her daughter Palmer. Vanderpump Rules cast member James Kennedy enjoyed a Mother’s Day brunch with his family at Villa Blanca. Scheana Marie’s ex Rob Valletta shared a selfie with his mom. Maybe he even hung up a TV for her in under seven minutes as a Mother’s Day gift.
It is so tough to follow the changing dynamics on reality TV shows. Cast members go from best friends to enemies in the matter of an episode. Not only that, but these shows are usually filmed months before the episodes actually air. Thankfully we have social media to help keep us up to date on who is getting along these days.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville shared a photo of her son with Kim Richards. She even referred to Kim as “Auntie Kim,” so it’s clear that these two are still very close. If only they both would return to the show to save us from another boring season.
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
