Ever since Andy Cohen announced a special episode of Watch What Happens Live featuring the kids of Housewives, there’s been drama. The show will feature Brielle Biermann, Riley Burruss, Noelle Robinson and Kairo Whitfield from the Real Housewives of Atlanta; Frankie Catania, Gia Giudice and Albie & Chris Manzo from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Also, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Briana Culberson and Shane Keough and Real Housewives of New York’s Victoria de Lesseps and Avery Singer will be thrown in the mix. And last but not least, newbie Brooks Marks from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City will be there too. So there’s definitely a variety of old and new, with plenty of OGs making a return.
But apparently, some of the wives were not happy that their kids were left off the list and made a call to Daddy Andy to complain. Andy said it was someone with daughters, which removes NeNe Leakes from the suspect list (even though she would’ve been a good contender). It was a bit of a red flag that no Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kids were featured, but Lisa Rinna totally owned it and admitted it wasn’t her calling the network. We know that her daughters Amelia Gray and Delilah Belle Hamlin are busy working on becoming the next Kardashians anyway.
I love a good mystery and when all else fails, this one will do. Recently Andy Cohen announced a Watch What Happens Live special featuring the children of Bravolebrities. “Children” meaning 18 years old and over… No minors will be a part of this program, but that doesn’t stop parents from subjecting their youngsters to scorn and humiliation over the course of 13 episodes. The line up includes various spawn representing most of the Real Housewives franchises.
Not every adult kid could participate. Some are in college, some have families in far away places, and some weren’t asked to join in on the fun. Rumors began swirling that two pissed off Housewives called Daddy with a bone to pick because their child wasn’t tapped. The Bravo detective squad, arguably more lethal than the CIA, began sleuthing in attempts to figure out which indignant women complained. According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna, we can eliminate her from the list. But we all know Lisa has memory problems, so she might not even remember making the call…
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
Jen Shah has been a total anomaly since her first scene on the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Her husband, Coach Shah, was MIA all the time, and she seemed to fill the void with several assistants called the “Shah Squad.” She bragged about her fancy house, wore full glam every day and was never filmed working and making money, just spending it. Jen’s first season was filled with blowups. She accused Mary Cosby of “effing her grandpa” because she told Jen she smelled like hospital. She blew up on anyone and everyone.
And on Tuesday, the story took an even crazier turn when Jen and her assistant Stuart Smith were accused of being involved in a long-running telemarketing scheme. The two are facing federal charges for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering after conning “hundreds” of victims in a decade-long scam, according to the NYPD. Hey, at least now we have a concrete answer as to how she got so rich.
Jen Shah can run, (and she tried to, bless her heart) but she can’t hide now that she’s been busted. This is how you get the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City second season started. As you know, Jen is going out in a blaze of leopard print glory now that her ALLEGED criminal activities have come to light. To be fair, most of the viewing audience clocked Jen’s sketchy financial situation when pretty much no one believed someone could have that much designer clothing on a college football coach’s salary.
While the supposed scamming jobs Jen and her assistant have ALLEGEDLY run on people since 2012 blew up in her face, we might have some new insight on Jen’s somewhat high-strung attitude. Nothing can make a girl pop off like the looming discovery of a telemarketing scheme that defrauded hundreds of people. Honey, if you are doing shady business deals, reality television is not the platform for you. Now Jen is about to face the music. Yesterday Jen was to virtually participate in her arraignment, but an overloaded conference call line caused the hearing to be postponed. We see you,
Andy Cohen Bravo fans!
While it is April Fools Day, it’s no joke that Real Housewives of Salt Lake City self-described MVP Jen Shah was arrested this week. She and her assistant Stuart Smith are facing federal money laundering and fraud charges. The two were allegedly involved in a decade’s-long scheme that prayed on “hundreds” of victims, many of them elderly. And the maximum sentence for a fraud conspiracy charge is 30 years, so it’s definitely not all (rented) chalets and champagne for Jen anymore.
All of this went down as RHOSLC is filming its second season. Rumor has it Jen was tipped off about the arrest while filming and left abruptly. The cast was apparently going on a trip to Colorado, but Jen was recently told she can’t leave Utah without permission. She appeared in court on Tuesday after she was arrested, and Bravo cameras might have caught the whole thing on tape. While the whole situation is no laughing matter, this storyline will no doubt make a crazy plotline in Season 2.
The feud between Teresa Giudice and Jackie Goldschneider on this season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has gone on far too long. Tre started it all when she spread a rumor that Evan Goldschneider cheats on his wife at the gym. Jackie, for some reason, tried using LOGIC on Teresa and made the worst analogy ever that involved a rumor that Gia Giudice snorts cocaine at parties. As expected, Teresa exploded because family is #thickasthieves around here.
Since the first episode, this fight has been brought up time and time again this season. Jackie skipped the first cast trip because of the feud and hosted a second birthday party for Evan since Teresa “ruined” the first one with the rumors. And even though they haven’t filmed together since the blowup, the two have spent the majority of their screentime bashing one another. And, of course, the fight has made its way to social media.
