A past New York Housewife we have not heard much from lately is Kelly Bensimon, she of the meandering conversation and the confusing Kelly speak. Although she popped up for a few guest appearances on New York after Bravo’s major casting reboot after Season 4, Kelly has not been on the show in several years. She is now sharing an update on what she has been doing-and hinting that she might be ready to rejoin the reality television world!
It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beadorfollowed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
Happy Monday! We’re kicking off this short holiday week with a new roundup of reality star sightings! First up, former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham sampled new menu offerings during expansion construction at Crazy Horse 3 in Las Vegas. Farrah Abraham has landed another MTV reality show with “Ex on the Beach”, for which she is reportedly earning $300,000!
Even though Kelly Bensimon was only on Real Housewives of New York for three seasons, her impact is eternal. No one will ever forget those Scary Island episodes or that infamous scene when she told Bethenny Frankel “I’m up here, you’re down here.” This woman provided us with a lifetime supply of meme and GIF inspiration.
Years later, Kelly is still being asked about Bethenny and she still has new shade to throw. Whether you agree with Kelly’s opinions or not, there’s no denying that she’s entertaining and occasionally offensive.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathewsfrom spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Happy Pre-Friday! We have some more reality star sightings for you this week. WEtv celebrated the new season of Braxton Family Values on Monday night and the party attracted a slew of former Bravolebrities who came to hang out with Traci Braxton and others! Rich Wakile, Kathy Wakile, Kelly Bensimon and Phaedra Parks were just a few of the former Real Housewives stars who turned up for the event. Current RHONJ cast member Danielle Staub and her daughter Jillian were also there. Is it just me or does it look like Danielle had a little something done? Or is just makeup?
Kim Kardashian continued to get press attention this week as she attended the Christie’s x What Goes Around Comes Around 25th Anniversary Auction in Beverly Hills. Kim was wearing sunglasses the entire night – indoors – and carrying a bedazzled french fry bag that cost $6,000.
Check out the newest reality star sighting photos below! Also, what is going on with Simon Cowell? He looks a little rough, right?
