Most Real Housewives earn their spot on television by being causing controversy and stirring up the pot. Real Housewives of Dallas star Stephanie Hollman is not one of those Housewives. She has managed to be both entertaining and compelling by opening up about her past and just being her true self in front of the camera crew, something many other Housewives should take note of.
This season, Stephanie opened up about her suicide attempt in her twenties. Now she is discussing the impact that episode on her life, how the fans responded, and sharing even more about her life pre-Housewives and since the show started airing.
To say that Teen Mom cast member Tyler Baltierra has been through a lot would be a major understatement. He and his wife Catelynn Baltierra gave a baby up for adoption as teens and experienced a miscarriage. She experienced postpartum depression and went to rehab twice. And on top of all that they are raising their daughter Nova.
Through all of that, Tyler has stepped up to the plate to be there for his family and now he’s realizing that he needs to take care of himself in order to do what’s best for his wife, daughter, and other family members.
Usually it’s more than welcomed when a reality TV couple has a lot of drama. In some rare instances it can just go too far for the viewers to stomach. Case in point: Thomas Ravenel and Ashley Jacobs.
The only positive thing that has come out of their relationship is the cast and fans uniting to support Kathryn Dennis. Other than that, it’s just cringe-worthy and that is putting it mildly. These two are just projecting major toxicity through the TV screens. There isn’t even anyone to root for in the actual relationship- but the viewers and cast members on this show would not be upset if these two broke up.
If you pay close attention while watching Below Deck Mediterranean, it’s clear that Hannah Ferrier and Captain Sandy Yawn are not each other’s biggest fans. Sure, they’re both good at their jobs, but you can just tell that they don’t mesh.
Will the tension boil over into a full-on argument? Or will they both just try to be professional and do their jobs during the charter season.
At the beginning of Vanderpump Rules Season 6, James Kennedy’s close friendship with Logan Noh was a hot topic of conversation. Logan admitted to having a crush on James and the two of them had a very affectionate rapport, so it was only a matter of time before the romance rumors started up.
And those rumors actually got started thanks to Logan himself, who drunkenly told Brittany Cartwright’s sister that he and James had been”f-cking.” James was devastated that his best friend resorted to lying
to secure a story line about the state of their relationship.
I feel like everyone needs a friend like Tom Sandoval. He will give you makeover if you need one and cry tears of joy on your behalf and use a puppy as a handkerchief. Sure, he’s a little outrageous with the hair-braider and the costume guy on hand, but there’s nothing wrong with being extra. It’s better to be extra than not enough.
And at least Tom is extra and not desperate. There is a major difference. Faith Stowers, now that’s another story. She used to hook up with Lisa Vanderpump’s son Max Todd. She got with Jax Taylor (while he was dating Brittany Cartwright) and recorded a conversation between the two of them. Faith even claimed to have feelings for Lala Kent. In short, this woman was doing whatever- and (allegedly) whomever- she could to join this cast and she still couldn’t move past the back row in the Vanderpump Rules opening credits.
Even with all the (alleged) cheating scandals and clique drama, the most infamous story line from this season of Vanderpump Rules is the pasta-infused argument between Lala Kent and James Kennedy. Things went from zero to one hundred (real quick) when James told Lala and Logan Noh that his girlfriend Raquel Leviss was moving in with him. Then he accused them of not liking his girlfriend and Lala tried to lighten the mood when she mentioned that she and Logan ate Raquel’s pasta while James was DJing at SUR.
James was overly offended by that statement and took things to another level when he told Lala “Honey, you f*ck a fat man because he pays for your rent.” Mentioning, or even just alluding to, Lala’s man (Randall Emmett) is a surefire way to set her off. She stormed out of the restaurant and two of them started screaming at each other on the sidewalk. Over pasta. And the insults about Lala’s relationship, but it did all stem from pasta chatter, so the fans wanted to know if it was really “about the pasta.” Or is there so much more to that story?
If you thought that the story lines we see on Real Housewives of Dallas are dramatic, you don’t even know the half of it. Apparently a lot of brutal things go down behind the scenes.
D’Andra Simmons revealed that one of her costars tormented her about her weight and even threatened to use that as a story line on camera- which makes no sense since it would have just made her look like an evil bully for torturing D’Andra- and that’s probably why we never saw it play out on camera.
