After Joanna Krupa announced her engagement (and maybe pregnancy?) to Douglas Nunes this week via social media, fans wondered what her ex-husband, Romain Zago, thought of the whole thing. The former Real Housewives of Miami star took to his own Instagram account to share a little insight to his current relationship status with Joanna. In a nutshell: things are all good!
Romain shared on Instagram that Joanna isn’t rushing into this second marriage by any means, “Quick info to whomever seems so kindly concerned about my current relationship w @joannakrupa and how are we adapting to our new lifestyles. First, to those concerned w the fact that she is rushing into a new relationship, she is not. Her & I have been unofficially separated since Dec 2016.. divorced mid last year.”
Even though she hasn’t used the word “engaged,” former Real Housewives of Miami cast member Joanna Krupa sure did make it seem like she was announcing an engagement on social media.
She shared not one, but two photos with a sparkling diamond ring as the focus, making many people think that she and her boyfriend Douglas Nunes are about to tie the knot. In all honesty, she played the whole situation like a pro. She shared one post to amp up the curiosity about her love life and set herself up to get more attention when she officially confirms the news with further elaboration. An engagement isn’t the only thing she’s been hinting at though. Is Joanna expecting her first child as well?
I would give anything to witness the Housewives crossover that went down when Teresa Giudice, Carole Radziwill, and Brandi Glanville all took part in the same promotional event. Obviously, they all looked amazing, but I would love to know what they chatted about in between working. It seems like such a random grouping of people that I cannot help being interested in and entertained by.
Speaking of Teresa Giuidice, one of her most formidable opponents, Kim DePaola, the eternally infamous Kim D, hung out with Teresa’s estranged cousin Kathy Wakile… and made sure to photograph it, of course. When were these two ever friends? I can’t imagine Kathy wanted anything to do with Kim D when she orchestrated the Strippergate shenanigans back in the day. I imagine they got together to talk shit about Teresa and Melissa Gorga….or maybe I’m just getting dramatic and they just wanted to cause a stir by posing together for a social media post. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. If they actually are legitimately friends with no ulterior motives, then color me shocked.
Today in our newest reality star photo roundup, we have a slew of reality TV celebs at New York Fashion Week, screening events for the new movie, Black Panther, and other sightings of the stars out and about! Stassi Schroeder was in NYC for an appearance on WWHL and then hit up some of the NYFW shows. She was photographed attending the Badgley Mischka show, as well as the Vivienne Hu show.
Tamar Braxton and her son Logan were among the many stars to attend Marvel Studios “Black Panther” screenings in NYC and L.A.. Also spotted: Ryan Serhant, EJ Johnson, Adiz “Bambi” Benson and more!
Check out these and more photos below in the gallery!
Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga went to Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper’s show with the New York City cast members Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer. Did they all sit together? Did they pregame the event? Was there a post-game? I have so many questions. Danielle Staub shared her own photos from the show, did she hang with them too? Did she go on a different date?
The Real Housewives Of Miami may be in our rearview mirrors, but Lea Black has not faded out of the spotlight – not by a long shot! The oft-titled “Mayor of Miami” appeared with her good friend Jeff Lewis on last season’s Flipping Out, and is already shooting scenes for this season as well (yay!). Lea also joins Jeff regularly on his SiriusXM radio show, where the two besties dish about pop culture, design, politics – you name it. Lea’s annual fundraising gala is still the talk of the town in Miami, and she’s also busy working on her skincare, jewelry and handbag lines, as well as promotion of her novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, a novel loosely based on the underbelly of Miami’s socialite scene.
Lea recently sat down with the Pink Shade With Erin Martin Podcast to dish on Housewives, Jeff, her relationship with The Queen of Versailles, Jackie Siegal – and more. Lea also does a Facebook Live show every Wednesday called Lunch With Lea which she describes as a time for her to dissect “all the trash and all the gossip – everything from pop culture to movies to music to politics to throwing people under the bus – laughing at people, laughing at people, awards shows. Whatever! We just talk, talk, talk.”
It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
