There’s no secret that Shannon Beador is not a big fan of David Beador’s new wife, Lesley Cook Beador, and vice versa. The Real Housewives of Orange County star went through a very public divorce with David, and seemingly tried everything, including some unusual couples’ therapy and a vow renewal, to put it back together again. But even that didn’t work.
And David didn’t waste any time dating, which we saw on the show was a huge bummer to Shannon. Now he has a new wife and a new baby with her, and it seems like Shannon cannot stop talking about them. Probably because she’s still bitter about the whole thing, but who could blame her? David, while he’s an expert at munching on chips, he wasn’t so good at being a faithful husband to Shannon.
While several members of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast have been involved in their fair share of controversies, no housewife is more divisive than Kelly Dodd. It started with her low-blow attacks on her castmates regarding their age, appearances and more. Last year, she took it to another level when she made insensitive comments about the coronavirus pandemic and wore a hat that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement. She’s since apologized for her “stupid” comments, but even Kelly thinks she’s probably getting the boot before Season 16. But who knows, because Andy Cohen doesn’t necessarily think she’s problematic.
And now Kelly has found herself in a controversy with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. But, somehow, LVP was the one admitting to a lie and apologizing to Kelly. I know, it’s very off-brand for these two.
Gone but not forgotten. Lisa Vanderpump has managed to remain semi-relevant since her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s doubly impressive since her other show, Vanderpump Rules is also in need of some serious revival. While Lisa would have you think everything is going well, viewers have other ideas.
Either way, Lisa’s faithful followers were overjoyed in July when news broke she had snagged a new show surrounding her Vanderpump Dogs rescue. Fans had to hold on tight, though, since some people didn’t share that die-hard loyalty to LVP. There’s still a few theories that puppy-gate was just a launching pad for Ken Todd and Lisa to start yet another venture. Deep breaths everyone.
Lisa Barlow is an interesting cast member on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. She is a boss and is always working on ways to grow her businesses. Lisa, who defines herself as “Mormon 2.0,” owns several alcohol brands with her husband, John Barlow. That fact alone is controversial in the Mormon Church.
Lisa and her best friend, (and doppelganger,) Meredith Marks always have each other’s backs. After RHOSLC co-star Jen Shah had a meltdown in Las Vegas, Lisa proclaimed that she didn’t think that she could be friends with Jen anymore. Since Jen had been gossiping about Meredith’s marriage to Seth Marks, Meredith was good with that decision.
Bienvenida a Miami and can I just say, FINALLY! It looks like Bravo is in talks to breathe new life into Real Housewives of Miami. RHOM used to be a thing but if you blinked, you missed it. The show was born in 2011 and introduced us to a few names we still hear about now and then. Most recently, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps caught some flack about hanging out with Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria. Miami alum Lisa Hochstein was in the news for racking up some fines after partying during the pandemic
Miami came to an end in 2013 for reasons we really don’t know. Andy Cohen implied it was due to the death of Marysol’s mother, Mama Elsa. He also said ratings had dropped off towards the end of the third season, so it was given the axe. Thankfully, reboots have become a thing and Miami could get another shot. Word on the street is Bravo is bringing back the franchise and returning us to palm trees and blue seas. But, will this be like re-gifting or getting a whole new present?
For being one of the most consistently contentious casts, there is finally something *most* Real Housewives of Orange County can agree on. Their dislike for Braunwyn Windham-Burke. As the season closed, the cast seemed to hit new theatrical heights all around. But no one was more dramatic than B. To be fair, she was grappling with some pretty shitty news.
Shannon Beador let it drop that Braunwyn had previously (and drunkenly) offered her 14-year-old daughter cocaine! Yeeeesh! At another point, Braunwyn accused Shannon of having a drinking problem too. Of course, Shannon denies this. She claims shes “fun” not an alcoholic. Okay then.
The original Shahs of Sunset cast members have all fallen out with each other at this point. The dynamics are constantly shifting from best friends to mortal enemies and everything else in between.
However, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and her husband Tommy Feight appear to be a solid couple, minus that whole trespassing and breaking flower pots thing. But, is there trouble in Paradise? MJ said some pretty shocking things on social media. I just want to know if Shahs of Sunset is filming right now.
Tamra Judge, gone but not forgotten on Real Housewives of Orange County. Famously given the boot with toxic best friend Vicki Gunvalson, neither Tamra or Vick have graciously moved towards the light. Instead they have released multiple comments to the media about how RHOC will suffer in their absence. And yes, RHOC is suffering, but I’m not sure it’s due to their departure.
Chattering amongst Bravo insiders has already started to prepare us for the return of Tamra. While Eddie Judge calls in his Xanax Rx for renewal, Tamra is getting involved. Seeking out the most injured animal, the former Housewife is #TeamBraunwyn in Kelly Dodd’s debate over whether or not Braunwyn Windham-Burke is “faking” her alcoholism. Now Tammy Sue goes head to head with Kelly, as her foot inches through the door.
