At this point you’d think Emily Simpson would be used to people making fun of her husband, Shane Simpson. It’s just too easy to hate him on Real Housewives of Orange County. He puts Emily down on camera, isn’t funny, acts superior to everyone when he absolutely is not, and just plain grosses me out.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke’s husband, Sean Burke, however has been giving Shane a run for his money at the “Worst Husband on RHOC” title. Sean was all up in Gina Kirschenheiter’s face at Shannon Beador’s party during this week’s episode. While I initially thought Gina was blowing the text messages he sent her out of proportion, I can’t help but see Sean in a different light. And it’s not because of the dorky outfit he was wearing. It’s because he’s such an enabler. Anyways, Andy Cohen is also curious about the similarities between Sean and Shane.
You know a Real Housewives conflict matters when cast members from a different series have an opinion on the situation. Take the accusations of infidelity and intimidation that Brandi Glanville lobbed at Denise Richards. Not only did Brandi claim that she and Denise had an affair, but that Denise demanded her discretion and silence about what allegedly happened between them.
Denise was grilled about it multiple times by the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast and had a hard time defending herself. Though Brandi claimed Denise and husband Aaron Phypers had an open marriage, Denise’s level of hurt and humiliation over the rumors would contradict that claim. Co-star Garcelle Beauvais questioned how Denise handled the situation, suggesting that she needed to stand up for herself. Now, another housewife is suggesting how Denise could have handled the rumors differently.
Isn’t it crazy how many of the Vanderpump Rules couples are either married or engaged? Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz are hitched. Last summer, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot, and their nuptials will play out on this season of Pump Rules. I am exhausted from all the showers/bachelorettes/ and other parties these couples have before their weddings.
In October, Stassi Schroeder will marry Beau Clark in Italy. And Lala Kent is slated to wed Randall Emmett in April. Randall even made his first appearance on the reality show, proving that he does exist. In a shocking turn of events, their wedding will not be filmed for Vanderpump Rules. I thought it was mandatory for all weddings to be filmed. Just saying.
Way back in 2012, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were introduced to one Porsha Williams Stewart. Porsha was a young married girl, filled with hopes and dreams of being the perfect mother and wife. Her now ex-husband, former football star, Kordell Stewart, ran a tight ship and kept a tight leash on his spouse. It was not an easy freshman year for Porsha. She didn’t exactly portray herself as the wisest Housewife ever, after displaying her complete lack of knowledge on historic facts regarding the Underground Railroad or how many days are in a year…
Porsha’s debut wasn’t finding a lot of support amongst the Bravo big guys. Keep in mind, this was before she bought economy-class tickets to THOTlandia and started using “her voice”. Now Andy Cohen is sharing some intel about Porsha’s first season, and believe it or not, her role was on very shaky ground. According to Andy, she was pretty much on the way out, but something happened at her first reunion that wound up changing minds and getting people on board that phantom train she had running beneath the Earth’s surface.
This is not entirely unexpected. Real Housewives of New York is filming right now, minus one melodramatic humanitarian. Yes, viewers will need to find the strength to move on without Bethenny Frankel dominating every scene she is in.
You won’t find Luann de Lesseps crying in the corner over the loss of Bethenny. Especially after last season. Luann has often been the target of Bethenny’s multiple mood swings and vice versa. Fans will also be introduced to new ladies that will inevitably be reduced to showing audiences if they
crack under pressure have the right stuff. Good luck, Leah McSweeney! Now Luann shares her thoughts on life without Bethenny. You can take off your sunglasses for this one, because it gets a little shady.
A new Real Housewives series is supposedly in the works! Housewives fans will either rejoice or recoil at the news. Currently, there are seven series on Bravo’s rotation. Real Housewives of Orange County and Real Housewives of Potomac are on and rocking right now. Season 4 of Real Housewives of Dallas premieres this week, on Wednesday, actually. Sometime this year fans will be able to watch Season 10 (!!) of Real Housewives of New Jersey. In 2020, we’ll get new seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of New York (in spite of losing Bethenny Frankel) and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (in spite of losing Lisa Vanderpump).
That was a lot to write! There are seven series in the Housewives canon! Imagine if Real Housewives of D.C. and Real Housewives of Miami were still on. I would literally get nothing done. Even though my life revolves around watching Housewives, there are simply too many shows to keep up with. Now, my time and attention will become even more limited since the location of this new series hits home!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9 has been the show’s most interesting season in recent years. Unfortunately, that still wasn’t enough to keep fans satisfied. We can all agree that this show needs to shake up the cast. DESPERATELY.
These ladies and their refusal to admit to anything from lawsuits to plastic surgery to puppy-related schemes have been so frustrating (and boring) to watch. Someone new needs to join this show. Tori Spelling really wants to be on RHOBH, but there’s just one problem. No one ever asked her to be a part of the cast.
Brandi Glanville makes great reality TV. Exhibit A is her recent iconic return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from the gut-wrentching “Goodbye, Kyle!” scene, she and Denise Richards cheers-ing together on screen was the most exciting thing to happen on Season 9. Now there’s talk of her return to the series in a more permanent capacity. Of course, Kyle Richards has some thoughts.
Kyle and Brandi were not the best of friends during Brandi’s time on the show. Remember when Brandi made her debut in crutches and Kyle and Kim Richards tried to hide them? They’ve come a long way. Gone are the days of accusing each other of smuggling tabloids and having sisters who use meth. Now with confirmation of the departure of Lisa Vanderpump, there is a gaping hole room again for a true reality TV veteran on RHOBH. Her return would definitely shake things up. It might even be making some women nervous.
