Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

Just like her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge, Kelly Dodd has no intention of graciously fading into the background. Kelly was fired, and she’s pissed about it.

Kelly blamed RHOC co-star Braunwyn Windham-Burke for losing her job. Braunwyn was also let go. Of course, it couldn’t actually be Kelly’s own behavior that led to her firing. Kelly shared screenshots of a text conversation with Braunwyn on Instagram. “We’d still be on the show if you didn’t make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political ‘woke’ BS,” she wrote.

Stacey Silva Wants To Have A Baby With Florian Sukaj

They’re back.  The twins you didn’t know you needed more of in your life have returned for a second season of their 90 Day Fiance reality spinoff Darcey & Stacey.  And these glamorous twins always have drama with their men.  Fabricated or not.  Stacey Silva married Florain Sukaj during the coronavirus pandemic last season.  Georgi Rusev popped the question to Darcey Silva just to quell her constant need for reassurance.  And so the twins began domestic bliss in Season 2.  Or not.

Ever in need of a story line, Stacey is pushing the narrative that she, with sons just ready to go off to college, needs to validate her relationship to Florian by having another child.  We get it Stacey, you’ve got to bring something to the table for the sake of viewers, and Florian needs an heir.  Except that he seems less than interested about this topic than usual.

Heather Dubrow Addresses Rumors That She Had Kelly Dodd Fired; Says She Wanted To Make Sure Real Housewives Of Orange County Was Going In A “Helpful, Not Harmful” Direction

I still can’t believe that Heather Dubrow will be back for Season 16 of Real Housewives of Orange County. My biggest Bravo wish came true! I can’t wait to see “Fancy Pants” and her $21 million dollar mansion. I’ll bet it has a champagne fountain.

Of course, three RHOC stars were let go from the franchise. Braunwyn Windham-Burke was handed her walking papers after two tumultuous seasons. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was also fired. Kelly Dodd’s ouster wasn’t really a shock.

Below Deck Mediterranean Hannah Ferrier

What’s a more polarizing topic these days than Coronavirus?  It’s 2021 and still we are divided over personal responsibility, mask-wearing, and mandatory vaccines.  Is anybody not over it at this point?  And if you’re one of those people that enjoys a little escapism by following reality TV, unfortunately these issues have long ago found their way into the lives of our favorite Bravo-lebrities.

Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd Leventhal, for one, was playing loose and fast with the pandemic since March 2020 when she flew to New York just before lock down to shack up with then-fiance Rick Leventhal.  She and the former FOX News anchor seemed to take the pandemic lightly since…..March 2020.  From the need to wear masks, the severity of COVID-19, and a celebratory “super spreader” event.  It’s a true feat that she and Rick did not catch the virus until New Years Eve 2021.  And even in that situation, Kelly managed to infuse some drama.

Robyn Dixon Real Housewives Of Potomac

Robyn Dixon and Juan Dixon are the poster couple for non-marital commitment.  The Real Housewives of Potomac couple married in July 2005 and divorced in March 2012.  After cohabiting for awhile, they reunited as a couple.

They’ve made their situation a prime story line on the the show.  It’s been dragged out for many a season now.  They were toying with the idea of remarrying and/or having another child for at least three seasons.  It’s on rotation.  Juan and Robyn finally got engaged at the end of Season 5.  So now it’s back to teasing the idea of another baby.

Below Deck Mediterranean Captain Sandy YawnIt wouldn’t be reality TV if there wasn’t conflict, whether it’s fabricated by production or not.  And Below Deck Mediterranean is the irresistible mix of work/life relationships happening in tight quarters. Even more so now with coronavirus restrictions limiting movement of both charter guests and crew off the boat.  The crew are together 24/7 in a highly stressful industry, and the results give us fans some premium reality TV fodder.

Drama will happen. And with Hannah Ferrier enjoying land-life, Captain Sandy Yawn needs a new target this season.  Katie Flood will have to up her table decor game for sure .  Usually Sandy is micromanaging in the galley, so chef Mathew Shea will be on her radar as well. But the fight teased during the Season 6 trailer is the first major professional issue Sandy has had with her protege, Bosun Malia White.  

Kyle Richards

If you’ve been watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season, you know who the breakout star is. I’m talking about Kathy Hilton. While the rumors about her being a full time housewife proved to be untrue, she has certainly made her mark on the show.

Not only is she quirky and funny, but she adds an interesting dynamic filming with sister Kyle Richards. Whether you’re Team Kyle or not, you have to admit that Kathy makes Kyle slightly more likable. Despite having some bad blood between them in the past, they seemed to have patched that up nicely. So they are getting along for now. But what about the other famous Richards sister?

Real Housewives of Orange County reunion Kelly Dodd

The summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and everyone wants to believe the coronavirus pandemic is over.  Restrictions have eased and people are ripping their masks off in a 21st Century version of bra-burning.

It may be a bit premature, and certainly people are still contracting the virus.  Each and every tally and life matters, but some just get more media spotlight than others.  In our beloved Bravo community several Real Housewives and their families have contracted and, thankfully, recovered from the disease.  Shannon Beador, Kyle Richards, Frank Catania, Margaret Josephs, Joe Beningo, Marge Senior, Kathy Hilton, Dorit Kemsley, and Jennifer Aydin all recovered from the coronavirus.  And now one more familiar Bravo face is battling COVID-19.
