After two great seasons (no, I’m not counting Season 1), Real Housewives of Dallas Season 4 has been a little ehhh. We continued to be subjected to the never-ending (yet boring) feud between LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons. They both dyed their hair the same
orange blonde color and claimed that there was infidelity in each other’s marriages.
Other than that, there really haven’t been many storylines, other than Stephanie Hollman and Kameron Westcott “feuding” because they just weren’t meant to be friends. It’s not that complicated, yet here we are. Who would have thought that the words “surface level” would be that upsetting? Well, after a season of pretty much nothing happening, LeeAnne gave us all something to talk about with her culturally insensitive remarks about new Housewife Kary Brittingham. She called Kary a “chirpy Mexican” and used the word “Mexican” a few times over, which is not acceptable. There’s no doubt that this will be the major discussion topic at the Season 4 reunion. Yes, it’s a big deal, and also because, again, nothing else really happened this season. Meanwhile, the Potomac ladies had a fire Season 4, something that I cannot say enough.
Waiting for new Vanderpump Rules episodes is killing me. Is it January 7 yet? Unfortunately, it is not. However, fans can fill the void by watching Pump Rules repeats and by reading Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix’s new book. And by “reading,” I mean trying out every single drink recipe and making some questionable decisions after. Tom and Ariana even included some hangover remedies in the book, so they really do provide you with everything you need.
Yes, the cocktail book that the couple argued about a few seasons ago is finally here. Fancy AF Cocktails: Drink Recipes from a Couple of Professional Drinkers is the perfect gift for your fun friends… or yourself, which is actually also a gift to others if you make a batch of cocktails from Tom and Ariana’s recipes. The duo has been all over the country promoting their book and it all culminated with last night’s launch party at Skybar at Mondrian Los Angeles.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Yes, we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New York cast travel to Mexico a million times at this point, but to quote Sonja Morgan, “We always have the best time.” Seriously though. The viewers enjoy it, the cast goes all out, and in all honesty, the other Real Housewives shows should take notes. This cast always delivers.
Yes, it would be great to switch up the RHONY cast trip locations, but the ladies always pull through in Mexico. Who could forget Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into that bush? What about Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s naked heart to heart in the pool? There have been so many classic RHONY moments south of the border. I am sure there will be even more iconic scenes from the Season 12 Mexico trip.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
There are definitely tiers when it comes to the Real Housewives cast trips. Last season, the New Jersey ladies went to Oklahoma. The Orange County Housewives are heading to Key West next week. Earlier in the season, they went to Beverly Hills and acted like tourists on Rodeo Drive. And, of course, pretty much every Real Housewives cast heads to Miami. The New York ladies do it every season at this point.
This doesn’t happen on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They do not take domestic trips. Clearly, they have the highest budget when it comes to cast trips. They’ve gone to Paris, Berlin, Dubai, the Netherlands, and Provence. The RHOBH ladies just filmed their Season 10 vacation in Rome, Italy.
Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd hosted the Vanderpump Dogs Gala last week in Los Angeles. “Coincidentally” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are currently on their cast trip in Rome. Try to convince me that timing is an accident. Now, everyone has a perfectly acceptable excuse for not attending the event/supporting the cause.
Nevertheless, there were some RHOBH alums in the house. Get ready for this one: Kim Richards was there… wearing what looked like the choker she had on from the Season 1 finale. You know, the necklace from that infamous scene where she accused Kyle Richards of stealing her goddamned house in the back of a limo. I would love to know how Kyle felt about Kim attending the event. Could Kim be trying to pull a Parent Trap and unite Lisa and Kyle? She does want them to make up, after all. RHOBH OG and eternal shit-stirrer Camille Grammer attended. I guess that bad blood with LVP was short-lived.
As we all know the cameras were rolling when Teresa Giudice went to Italy with her four daughters to visit estranged husband Joe Giudice. None of that footage has surfaced yet and there’s no word on when it will air. It would be kind of awkward to show this before Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 concludes. But at the same time, the anticipation is high to see Joe and Teresa’s in-person dynamic.
While we wait on the video footage, there are plenty of photos to click through. Now that Joe has joined social media, he was really on his game during the visit. Teresa, on the other hand, dialed down her social media presence, which isn’t a great sign for anyone pulling through for them to resurrect their
The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.
Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.
