Last season on Southern Charm, Austen Kroll‘s female costars thought he might be turning into the new Shep Rose,otherwise known as “Shep 2.0.” Those are very big shoes to fill. But once Austen seemed to settle into long-term unemployment and mess things up with costar Chelsea Meissner, who often picked up the tab on their dates, it looked like a good fit.
It seemed like there might be a delay with Southern Charm Season 6 because of Thomas Ravenel’smany legal issues. He even sued Bravo with the hope of getting his name and custody issues with Kathryn Dennis wiped from the show. It’s unclear how much Thomas will be mentioned or alluded to, but Kathryn does mention her fear of becoming a single mom in a scene from the Southern Charm trailer.
It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beadorfollowed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
Why is it never recorded when Housewives from different shows hang out? The cast crossover would make for such a great show. No, I do not think there are “too many” Real Housewives shows. I would never ever think that. The more Housewives, the better.
Even though my ideal spin-off show does not exist, the Housewives do take lots of photos and videos when they get together. It is almost like we are watching an all stars edition of Real Housewives. No need to look through everyone’s accounts though. All the photos are in this week’s Instagram Roundup.
The Vanderpump Rules cast used to shade Lala Kent for travelling in her boyfriend Randall Emmett’s private jet. Now that Lala is cool with everyone on the show, they too get those same travel perks here and there. Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Stassi Schroeder, and Stassi’s boyfriend Beau Clarkall joined Lala and Randall in Cabo for engagement celebrations- or at least that’s what was mentioned in the Instagram caption. Were they celebrating Lala and Randall’s engagement? Or were they there in honor of Jax and Brittany’s engagement? Or maybe it’s just a combination of both. Either way, they had an enviable vacation, or at least that’s what it seems like via the Instagram posts.
A home renovation is a go-to story line on reality television shows- unfortunately. Usually it’s not a riveting story line, but it does happen during pretty much every season of every reality TV show.
Southern Charm cast member Chelsea Meissnerjust opened up about her home renovation project and teased her followers to “stay tuned.” Hopefully that just means she will be sharing more on social media and that this will not be a storyline on Southern Charm next season.
After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimesall united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.
It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.
