Back in 2019 when we were all still living normal lives, an announcement was made that delighted Housewives viewers across the globe. The crossover event of all crossover events that would unite OG
troublemakers cast members from several different franchises in one location. After the Rona did us dirty and halted production on television shows and life in general, in February 2021 the Peacock network greenlit the limited series and scheduled production.
In April of this year, the Housewives All-Stars were announced and included Teresa Giudice, Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Kyle Richards. Melissa Gorga was also in attendance. While the ladies filmed in Turks & Caicos, reports emerged that some of the women weren’t exactly getting along. Recently, Luann found herself on Watch What Happens Live and Andy Cohen tried to get some dirt on the newest Scary Island.
Luann de Lesseps, much like her OG counterpart Ramona Singer, has seemingly aged backwards throughout every season of the Real Housewives of New York. She’s tall, dark and fabulous, which is a great combination for an over-the-top housewife. Whether she’s telling people they’re “uncool,” complaining about the “lower-level” or flirting with the nearest pirate, Lu’s a treasure to behold. She always brings it to RHONY year after year, and looks great doing it.
Lu has gone through quite a lot in the past few years. She got married and divorced from Tom D’Agostino, only to move into a new apartment right next door to him. She had a new man for a minute, but now she’s single again, and single Lu is always a good time. And she’s going sober so far on Season 13 alongside Leah McSweeney. Oh, did I mention she’s also included on the Real Housewives All-Stars spinoff? She’s truly an icon who’s shown a lot of growth throughout her time on the show. She even got a tattoo, like who is this new Lu?
Check your thermometers because Hell has frozen over. Fans have spoken about a concept like this for years, imagining their favorite sharks all swimming in the same pond. The Bravo gods listened and filming has commenced on what is sure to be more drama than Turks & Caicos ever asked for. You will definitely see Ramona Singer, throwin’ bows like it’s Black Friday to get the best room. Luann de Lesseps will join Ramona on the adventure, and be on high alert to avoid any rogue bushes lurking in her path.
Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga went wheels up. This will probably be the last time Melissa is considered an All-Star in any respect, so thank you Jesus! Kyle Richards grabbed her Zohar and 19 caftans to make the trip, she will be joined by Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey upon landing. Sounds fun, right? Well, the streets are saying there will be a “surprise 8th guest” to make it a nice, even number. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to outdoor pedicures in a tropical environment… HIIIIIIIIIIIII!
Everyone is going through it and Brandi Glanville is no exception. Last time we saw Brandi, it seemed like she had been called in by Bravo to amp up the drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As usual, Brandi answered the call and presumably gave the producers exactly what they asked for. Denise Richards was a walking match and Brandi lit the fire that ultimately lead to a season of drama and Denise’s departure.
After ostensibly doing what she was told, it seems Brandi won’t make appearances on Season 11. You would think after having to bring someone in from the outside to pull a main storyline out of nowhere, she would have at least gotten a gift basket. But the world works in mysterious ways and like the rest of us, Brandi needs to get paid. So what’s a girl to do when the well is running dry and Bravo keeps sending her to voicemail? Real estate, baby.
There’s no doubt that Kelly Bensimon was reality TV gold. However, no one has ever praised Kelly for her insights. Reading the room and behaving in accordance are not strengths of the former Real Housewives of New York cast member.
Just like many other people, Kelly posted on social media in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. However, it was mostly about Kelly, which it always seems to be with Kelly. It’s Kelly’s world and we’re all just living in it, or so she thinks.
Welcome back to the inaugural Park City Fashion Week — bringing high fashion for the very first time to Utah! After seeing the set-up in last week’s episode, I’m starting to wonder if this fashion show was specifically put on for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. I mean, Whitney Rose is walking in the show. Meredith Marks is showcasing her jewelry line. And the runway is so short that the front row is essentially just Heather Gay, Jen Shah, Mary Cosby and a few other people. Not to mention the entire thing seems to culminate in Brooks Marks debuting his eponymous “fashion line” of name-branded athleisure wear. (And after seeing the show, I’m using that term loosely.)
The best part of the fashion show is that many elements are giving me vintage RHONY vibes. Watching Jen‘s icy stare as Mary tries to small talk her way through being seated directly next to her nemesis is the purest recreation of Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon doing the exact same thing more than a decade ago at New York Fashion Week. (And if you don’t know who’s who in this comparison, go back and watch Season 3 in the Big Apple STAT.)
There’s an illness and it’s spreading. It seems several former Housewives are plagued with, “Pretty Please Notice Me!?!” We’ve seen the symptoms in Kelly Bensimon, from Real Housewives of New York. Jill Zarin may also need to seek treatment. Then there is poor, long-term sufferer, Brandi Glanville. Our Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
We’ve recently seen Brandi pop up on an episode where she shared good times with Denise Richards. I’m still trying to root for you, Denise! But Brandi’s motives are clear. She wants us to know she is great pals with newbie Denise. #cheersbitch Now we know there is a vacancy on the show. A big gap needs to be filled. So is Brandi shooting her shot while shooting her mouth off, again? Now she is revealing the “truth” about her
failures bad luck. I’ll give you one guess on who Brandi blames for her downfall…
Ah, Kelly Bensimon. I see you, dear. The former Real Housewives of New York
wackadoo amateur photographer is speaking again. We don’t need to be reminded of Kelly. She burned SATCHELS OF GOLD into our heads years ago.
I will give her this, Kelly provided some legendary moments during her time on the show. #alsharpton Her epic breakdown behavior on Scary Island had people questioning both her motives and mental health. I have felt bad for Kelly over the years, but all of that is gone. Kelly is now forcing me to defend Bethenny Frankel, and I can’t forgive her for that.
