Did they or didn’t they consummate their marriage? How in the world would you ever prove it? And who would want to see that proof?

This week was all about family time when it comes to your favorite reality TV stars and of course they posted pictures from their hangouts.
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.
There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.
Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub showed off her bikini body while enjoying some time on a boat. Teen Mom star Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels showcased her baby bump in a swimming pool.
It’s the news Little Women: LA viewers have seen coming for what seems like an eternity: Briana Renee finally filed for divorce from her horrific husband, Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer]. Briana also obtained a restraining order against Matt, citing verbal abuse, erratic behavior, and in the most disturbing twist yet, bestiality and pedophilia. Matt has allegedly threatened to kill all of them and/or himself in recent months. This threat is made even more frightening when we remember that Briana brought a gun into their home last season, claiming she needed it for “protection.”
Despite the protestations of her family, friends, and cast mates, Briana clung to her abusive husband through thick and thin – or as she would say, “Ride or Die.” Through his sexting scandals, verbal abuse, serial cheating, and drunken outbursts – Briana made excuses for it all. But now she’s found her limit, and (hopefully) can extricate herself from what can only be described as a toxic relationship.
Viewers of Little Women: LA know that this cast of ladies has been through the wringer in terms of health challenges and surgeries over the years. But last year, what should have been a straightforward (albeit high risk) spinal cord surgery turned into a protracted nightmare for Christy McGinity Gibel when her surgeon nicked her artery and, according to the reality star, “misled her despite worsening symptoms.”
Now Christy is suing a handful of doctors from the Beverly Hills 90210 Surgery Medical Center. She is also naming Cedars Sinai and a select group of other private practices in the suit.
Another season of Little Women: LA over, another random woman on the reunion couch reliving the details of hooking up with resident sleezeball, Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer]. At this point, it’s almost like the rancid cherry on top of each season’s finale – and the grotesque segue into Briana Renee and Matt’s subsequent Lifetime spinoff. As Matt’s Alaska hookup, Stephania, joins Kevin Frazier and the cast to tell “her side of the story,” Briana fights back – and Matt pathetically cries. And – ugh!!! It’s just too much! Haven’t we suffered enough? No more of this totally depressing marriage, please.
Part two picks up with Stephania joining the group. She explains meeting “sad, lonely” Matt after getting off of her shift, then listening to his tale of woe at the bar. Her assessment: His wife was to blame for his troubles, and also for the kiss that happened afterward! Briana apparently came down to the bar to yell at them, which fueled Matt’s fire and justified his reasons for being a
sh*tty tortured husband. Stephania insipidly excuses her own actions, claiming she just wanted to understand this troubled man better! So she pulled him into a no-camera zone (employee workspace), let him kiss her after he walked her home (which he claims to have apologized for), then bid him goodnight. Yeah, right.
