Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Siggy Flicker took her family to her favorite city in the world: Boca Raton for some R&R. Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Faye Resnick, and their families spent time in Aspen, Colorado. Bethenny Frankel soaked up some sun on the beach while former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon showed off her bikini body in Miami.
It’s an enormous bummer that this season of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey has been derailed into bitter accusations of anti-Semitism, especially after we hearty souls weathered the petty nonsense of cake-gate for so damn long! Can’t we just watch these broads make pasta in Milan, get confused about cathedrals, mispronounce some sh*t, and call it a day? Unfortunately, there’s unfinished business between the ladies to belabor…for ages.
Siggy Flicker continues her anti-Margaret Josephs campaign this week, initially refusing to accept Marge’s apology. But at least she and Teresa Giuidice share a tender moment while bonding over the loss of Tre’s mom, Antonia. Dolores Catania and Danielle Staub also try to walk the line of frenemy-ship so as to avoid lockup in Italy. While the women try not to get kicked out of eating establishments abroad, Joe Gorga has a heart to heart with his nieces back in Jersey. His message to them: Stop being Satan!
Minus that cake fight, this Real Housewives of New Jersey season has been relatively drama-free for Melissa Gorga. Now her former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson is coming for her and the king of Bravo himself, Andy Cohen, with a dramatic lawsuit.
Jackie is suing Melissa and Andy for THIRTY MILLIONS DOLLARS because of the “defamation and infliction of emotional distress.” Melissa shared that Jackie cleared out her store during an episode of the show. Andy brought this up while Melissa was a guest on Watch What Happens Live, so that’s why his name is attached to this lawsuit as well.
Some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies may view Kim D as a cockroach (pronounced cock-A-roach), but she does certainly bring it with her cameo appearances. There’s no better way to get the RHONJ fandom on your side than to go against Kim D- and if it’s at a Posche fashion show, it is always iconic. We saw glimpses of the table-flipping Teresa Giudice from Season 1 of the show when she crashed the Posche Fashion show to confront Kim D about those cheating rumors.
Teresa spelling out “Posche” with a letter by letter insult aimed at Kim D was nothing short of legendary. Pushing that chair was just the cherry on top. Unfortunately for Teresa, she ultimately just gave Kim what she wanted: publicity for her store and increased attention on social media. Fortunately for the viewers, we will always have this scene to treasure. Margaret Josephs opens up about her first shake down and what the viewers did not get to see.
The war between Siggy Flicker and
her ego everyone else on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has reached a boiling point. And Margaret Josephs, once again, finds herself on the receiving end of Siggy’s latest barbs – this time about being anti-Semitic. Thus, the drama that has gone well beyond cake-throwing, heading now into straight up character assassination (and, dare we say, defamation?) territory.
Margaret visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to dish on the latest drama between Siggy and her. Asked to briefly describe this season of RHONJ, Margaret says, “Good, bad, ugly, epic, and – amazing!” When asked who she’s pissed off so far this season, Margaret does not mince words: “Soggy and Dolores.” Yup. That just about sums it up!
Whether you love Kim DePaola or love to hate her, Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have to admit that she makes good TV. Her best friendship turned rivalry with Teresa Giudice has blessed us all with some epic Posche fashion show encounters over the years.
This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim
stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.
Our apologies, Italy. Please don’t judge us based on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey visiting your fair country! As the ladies storm into Milan, breaking glasses and acting like a$$es, Danielle Staub finally goes, well…Danielle Staub on everyone. Having no more stale cake to metaphorically drag around, Siggy Flicker decides it’s time to up the ante by calling out Margaret Josephs on her Hitler remarks. Dolores Catania tries to ride the very sharp fence of loyalty to Teresa Giudice and Siggy, while Melissa Gorga pretends to be an entrepreneur as she scours the fashion houses of Milan for feather boas and plunging necklines. Envy needs some sh*t on its shelves, after all.
After packing montages where everyone discusses what an epic disaster the trip is bound to be, we cut to the ladies landing in Italy in one piece. Marge is just glad no one has breathed a word about the Posche fashion show, but Melissa thinks it’s nuts that no one’s discussing the elephant – or in Kim DePaola’s case, the leathery lizard – in the room. In the van on the way to their hotel, Dolores asks what the agenda is? Ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Beyonce and get in Formation! The teams shall be: Siggy/Dolores, Margaret/Melissa, and Teresa/Danielle. It will be a six-women-enter-five-women-leave situation, a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. (Except set in a swag hotel rather than a dusty mosh pit.)
