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.
Does a birthday even count if it isn’t documented on social media? No, not these days. Even reality TV stars are all about celebrating a birthday with an Instagram post.
Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian all gathered to celebrate Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday. Kylie also kept the celebrations going with a birthday trip to Las Vegas.
The beauty of being on a reality TV show is the ability to get an outside perspective on your own life when you watch the episodes back. Or at least it is in theory. There are some reality TV stars who do not learn a thing from watching themselves back on TV. One of those people is Vicki Gunvalson, who is in some hot water with Kelly Dodd.
Vicki Gunvalson and her boyfriend Steve Lodge introduced Kelly’s (very recent) ex-husband Michael Dodd to one of their friends and went on several double dates with them- without ever telling Kelly. Kelly had to find out from a third party. Pretty much every viewer is on Kelly’s side, yet Vicki still has zero understanding that it was hurtful to keep those double dates a secret.
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.
The good news is that the first episode of Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County was better than all of Season 12. The bad news is that it still wasn’t that great. Essentially nothing happened. Yes, Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Kelly Dodd are all getting along these days and that’s monumental considering that Shannon and Tamra didn’t even want to film with Vicki last season.
Nevertheless, let’s just hope their willingness to film with each other means that it is more likely for drama to occur and that it’s not just a boring love fest all season. I’m all for the friendships, but friendships with some shade and an argument or two thrown in make for way better television.
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.
Is it even Father’s Day, if it’s not documented on social media? Apparently not if you’re a reality TV star.
You know what they say, “the costars that take photos together stay together.” Well, no one actually says that, but it does make some sense. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars spent some quality time with their castmates (and their fellow network celebs) this week. And of course, they documented it all on Instagram.
Shep Rose shared a photo of himself with Austen Kroll at the Southern Charm reunion taping. New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer met up with Shep while he was in her city to film the Southern Charm reunion.
