Bugsy Drake Releases A Book On Tablescapes

Both Below Deck and Below Deck Mediterranean have undergone some haywire transformations in their most recent seasons. Among the highest ranking changes was Bugsy Drake coming on as a second strew mid-season and ending in the role of chief! Who saw that coming? And what was the new interior leader’s point of order? Tablescapes of course!!

Have you ever seen so much tablescape drama in your life? Captain Sandy Yawn shamed Hannah Ferrier for her lack of gusto for table design. It is such a weird microcosm of existence to get hung up on. Like how much emotion can one person have around napkins, those weird flat marble stone things from your grandma’s house, and forks? I guess the answer is, a lot.

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

Joao Franco’s first season on Below Deck Mediterranean did not inspire a lot of confidence in his ability for a respectful romantic relationship.  His constant flirtations with Kasey Cohen while wooing a smitten Brooke Laughton was cringe-worthy at best.  Their relationship chugged along for a bit after the season ended.  Brooke went to visit Joao’s family in Zimbabwe, which seemed promising, but she ultimately broke up with him shortly thereafter.

Of course that all played out in the Bravolebrity spotlight.  Since then, Joao has been keeping his relationship with girlfriend Michelle Dicu relatively private, except for a few Instagram posts.  But on Friday, Joao did share some very exciting news with his followers.

Instagram Roundup: Reza Farahan, Lisa Vanderpump, Captain Lee, & More!

All eyes are on Lisa Vanderpump these days. If you’re searching for her, don’t look anywhere near the Beverly Hills Housewives. She’s not hanging out with any of them these days, but she does spend time with some beloved animals. Recently, she shared a photo of herself holding a giant bunny.

Flipping Out cast member Jenni Pulos posted a photo of herself and her new puppy named Jax. She did not specify if she named him after Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, but that’s the first “Jax” that popped up in my mind.

Instagram Roundup:

This week your favorite reality TV stars were all about the family time. Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels posted a photo of herself with her husband Chris Samuels and their two children. Former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Meghan Edmonds shared a photo holding all three of her babies in her lap at the same time.

Million Dollar Listing star Josh Altman spent some quality time with his daughter. Teen Mom‘s Leah Messer shared a selfie with her daughter on a swing set.

Instagram Roundup: Lisa Vanderpump, Ramona Singer,

Lisa Vanderpump, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, and their other partners just opened up their restaurant Tom Tom, so you know what that means: Instagram posts from all of the Vanderpump Rules cast members at Tom Tom.

Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin even stopped by the new restaurant and took some photos, of course.

Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder visited Amanda Batula (and presumably the rest of the Summer House cast) in the Hamptons. New York Housewife Ramona Singer shared her own photos from her latest Hamptons weekend.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies (including the newest addition Denise Richards) went to Bahamas for a girl trip and took some photos showing off their bathing suits (and bodies), of course.

The Jersey Shore cast  has been promoting Part 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation and taking photos together, of course.

Instagram Roundup:

After years of hating on Lala Kent for her private jet access, all of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules caved and took her up on the offer to take a trip in the PJ. Yes, you read that right: ALL of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules were on the same trip. Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Marie, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute,  and Katie Maloney all went on a girls trip- which was hopefully filmed for the show and chock full of some drama.

Other reality TV stars enjoyed the best of what the summer  weather has to offer. Teen Mom cast member Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow enjoyed some pool time with her daughters. New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice played on the beach with her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice.

Just like most dedicated television watchers, reality TV stars also get star struck when they meet their favorite celebrities.

Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks shared a photo of herself with 50 Cent. Botched star and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills husband Dr. Paul Nassif posted a photo with Mark Wahlberg.
