Many reality stars naturally continue their friendships with castmates off camera. Like the sycophantic relationship between the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Or former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel helping frenemy Luann de Lesseps find her way to rehab #2.
On occasion, however, more confounding alliances pop up in the reality world. Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge, who has always been known to speak her mind, recently defended two reality stars most of us probably never imagined she had a connection to.
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.
Even though the sisterly drama has played out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (and behind the scenes) throughout the years, Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton joined Kim Richards to celebrate Kim’s birthday- and marked the occasion with a family photo, of course.
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Porsha Williams and Shamea Morton showed off their growing baby bumps.
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.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga celebrated their daughter Antonia’s thirteenth birthday with their whole family.
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.
A lot of your favorite reality TV shows shared photos from their Easter and Passover celebrations with their families.
Real Housewives alums Heather Dubrow and Siggy Flicker had double the fun and celebrated both Easter and Passover- and documented both holidays, with photos, of course.
Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels enjoyed an egg hunt with her children and neighbors. Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia Abraham, Cary Deuber’s daughter Zuri, Ali Fedotowsky’s daughter Molly, and other reality TV offspring celebrated Easter by hunting for eggs.
A lot of your favorite reality stars were all about the family time this past week on Instagram. Teen Mom star Leah Messer rooting for her daughters at cheer. Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis celebrated her daughter Kensie’s 4th birthday. New York Housewife Ramona Singer hung out with her daughter Avery Singer. Luann de Lesseps saw Kinky Boots on Broadway with her kids. Tiny Harris celebrated her daughter Heiress’ birthday.
I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.
Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
