As another year approaches, it is time to reflect upon the past, and dream about the future. As a reality television fanatic fan, my thoughts turn to which Housewives need to grace our television screens once again. Are you listening, Bravo?
Each Real Housewivesfranchise has seasons that are amazing and others that are boring less exciting. Often, the key is having the right number of newbies and franchise favorites. But what really makes sparks fly is when a Housewife returns to a show, resuming prior relationships and interacting with newer castmates. Here is my dream team of who needs to be, and deserves to be, a Housewife again.
Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.
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.
Hell hath no fury like Kelly Dodd scorned. Vicki Gunvalson crossed the wrong woman. Vicki may be the “OG of the OC,” but she’s truly met her match. Kelly is unfiltered, ruthless, shady, and I love her for it.
Vicki has always prided herself on being the sole OG remaining on Real Housewives of Orange County. How long will her reign last? If you ask Vicki, she would probably say “forever.” Kelly is not on the same page with that one. At all.
Nevertheless, Emily jumped in to defend her man and told Kellyshe would “kill her.” Other than that, Emily doesn’t really have a ton of drama to resolve with other cast members during the Season 13 reunion. Or at least that’s what it seems like based on the episodes up until this point.
There were some very impressive reality TV star Halloween costumes this year. Sure, some people just threw on an animal ear headband, but most of them really went all out. Lisa Rinna dressed like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscostar Erika Jayne and absolutely killed it. When Erika posted the photo on her own Instagram, it took me a few seconds to realize that it was Lisa and not Erika.
Nowadays, there are a lot of women who would love to be a Real Housewife. Being on the show provides so many cool opportunities and obvious monetary gain. When Heather Dubrow joined Real Housewives of Orange Countyit was far from a fledgling series, but her family had a lot of hesitations about the move.
And that is putting it nicely. Heather actually said that her family was “so mean” to her about it…until they realized how they can piggyback off of her benefits.
