Real Housewives of Orange County alums Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley have a baby girl on the way. It’s the couple’s first child together and they could not be more excited, especially after their tough journey to conceive.
Gretchen and Slade had a lavish baby shower for their soon-to-be baby girl Skylar Gray at the Seven 7 Seven in Laguna Beach, CA. There were actually a lot of past and present Bravolebrities present at the party. The event was beautifully decorated thanks to Ice Age Glacial Water, Chandon Champagne, Distillery 291, Glamour Flower Boutiquet, The Balloon Box, and Invitation Design Studio.
Former Shahs of Sunset cast member Jessica Parido is now a mom. No, you didn’t miss her pregnancy announcement. She just didn’t actually make one.
Instead, she waited to let people know about her big news after she gave birth…. but months later. One person who wasn’t in the dark about her pregnancy was her ex-husband Mike Shouhed. She let him in on the secret early on.
Season 7 of Shahs of Sunset is chock full of shade. Most of these cast members have been in each other’s lives since high school so they know exactly how to rile each other up and exactly where all of the bodies are buried. Three episodes in and there’s already a lot of drama between the cast members. Just imagine how the rest of the season will go. There’s no warming up with this cast. They just get into the dramatics right away.
During the last episode alone, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Reza Farahan invited Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s ex-husband’s other ex-wife to a party…. and announced her presence in front of a crowd while they were on stage holding microphones. Talk about doing the most. Clearly they were determined to have some entertaining story lines this year and I’m not mad about it. Not only that but Reza majorly shaded Mike Shouhed for “only dating” hoes which did not sit well with Mike. Mike responded to that comment by shading Reza’s marriage when he and GG appeared on last night’s episode on Watch What Happens Live.
After years of hating on Lala Kent for her private jet access, all of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules caved and took her up on the offer to take a trip in the PJ. Yes, you read that right: ALL of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules were on the same trip. Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Marie, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney all went on a girls trip- which was hopefully filmed for the show and chock full of some drama.
Other reality TV stars enjoyed the best of what the summer weather has to offer. Teen Mom cast member Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow enjoyed some pool time with her daughters. New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice played on the beach with her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice.
Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.
Vicki Gunvalson hung out with her man Steve Lodge in Huntington Beach, California while her daughter Briana Culberson, son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and grandsons hung out with her ex-husband Donn Gunvalson in North Carolina.
Former Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks took her two sons Ayden and Dylan to an Atlanta Braves game- all decked out in red, white, and blue in honor of the holiday.
Summer is a great time to travel. Just ask your favorite reality stars, who have already taken several summer vacations. And of course they all documented their trips.
Kourtney Kardashian shared a photo from her trip to Italy. Southern Charm stars Shep Rose, Austen Kroll, and Craig Conover left Charleston, South Carolina for a boys trip to the Hamptons. New York Housewife Dorinda Medley enjoyed some time in Massachusetts. Ladies of London alum Caroline Stanbury shared a photo from her time in Los Angeles. Potomac Housewife Ashley Darby explored the Himalayan Mountains on vacation.
A lot of the reality stars that you love (and love to hate- or at least love to make fun of) were very active on Instagram this week, but don’t worry about refreshing your feed. We have the most interesting photos from the past few days in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
Vicki Gunvalson’s ex-husband Donn Gunvalson spent time with Briana Culberson, Ryan Culberson, and their two sons in North Carolina. Randy Houska was also on grandpa duty with his Chelsea Houska’s children.
Unfortunately, reality TV shows do not bless us viewers with new episodes every single week. Thank god for social media to fill in the gaps between seasons or just to give the fans a glimpse of what was happening behind the scenes to provide us with some additional content. This week’s Instagram Roundup of reality star photos does not disappoint.
The Real Housewives of New York ladies posted some great snaps. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams shared a rare photo of herself rocking that no-makeup look. There is a photo of Southern Charm stars Craig Conover, (a now-blonde) Kathryn Dennis, and Kathryn’s son Saint that has plenty of Instagram users wondering if the long-time friends are currently dating. Hold up – Craig’s ex Naomie Olindo posted a photo with Kathryn and Danni Baird. So it looks like they’re all just friends, but you never know.
