Very few people actually quit a Bravo reality TV show. Usually, they are afforded the courtesy of putting out some nonsensical statement about “looking forward to future projects”
that never actually come to fruition to save face. However, most people don’t just quit these shows. The Bravo paychecks and the endorsement deals that come from the exposure are a lot to give up.
In June 2020, Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for their racist behaviors. In response, some people wanted to know why Jax Taylor wasn’t included in that list of firings. Faith Stowers accused Jax’s wife Brittany Cartwright of using racial slurs.
Life is certainly not all diamonds and rose for Lisa Vanderpump, but her life does often come close to the saying. It feels like forever since we’ve seen LVP on our screens. She unceremoniously left Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2019. She couldn’t take the mean girls anymore, so it was Goodbye Kyle [Richards], and goodbye housewives.
Then COVID hit, which meant no Vanderpump Rules either for the restauranteur. Recently, however, things have been turning around for Lisa. She has a new show, Overserved with Lisa Vanderpump, coming out on E! in March. The show will take place at Villa Rosa, where Lisa will literally overserve guests and spill some tea. So yeah, I’m there! The high of good news however doesn’t last for long. Now, Lisa and husband Ken Todd are being sued (again).
With the latest season of Southern Charm wrapping and the newest season of Summer House beginning, what better time to announce Bravo’s newest love child? Personally, I’m still reeling from the final Southern Charm reunion episodes. I’m also living with their off-camera drama that simply REFUSES to quit. There are levels to this shit.
And then there’s Summer House. So far they’ve featured an entire sandwich debate and a seriously brutal love triangle. Need I say more? With coronavirus mucking up filming and production plans all over the place, it seems Bravo has found yet another answer to fill the content void. MIX AND MATCH THE MAYHEM! This mash up is about to be a train wreck of epic proportions. Several bravo casts are seemingly making their way up the coast to start a whole new series!
Lisa Vanderpump is still a very busy bee in the world of reality TV. Despite her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she still manages to stay relevant. She has made some missteps along the way, but overall, it doesn’t seem like she’s missing RHOBH. She even managed to snag a new reality show.
But now Lisa is looking back on her time in another spotlight outside of Bravo. She appeared on Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars and decided to dish about her, erm, experience with her dancing partner.
Congratulations are in order Real Housewives of Dallas OG cast member Brandi Redmond. She and her husband Bryan Redmond have welcomed their fourth child to the family.
They already had two daughters, 11-year-old Brooklyn and and 9-year-old Brinkley, in addition to their son Bruin, who is two years old.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore’s marriage to Marc Daly has always been a hot topic. The couple married in St. Lucia in June of 2017. Kenya was fired from the show after Season 10 because Marc was allergic to the RHOA cameras. When Kenya twirled back for Season 12, she took a huge pay cut.
Marc did appear on that season of the franchise with Kenya and their baby daughter, Brooklyn Daly. He was always sketchy. He was extremely controlling and talked down to Kenya. Every interaction was tense.
Gone but not forgotten. Lisa Vanderpump has managed to remain semi-relevant since her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s doubly impressive since her other show, Vanderpump Rules is also in need of some serious revival. While Lisa would have you think everything is going well, viewers have other ideas.
Either way, Lisa’s faithful followers were overjoyed in July when news broke she had snagged a new show surrounding her Vanderpump Dogs rescue. Fans had to hold on tight, though, since some people didn’t share that die-hard loyalty to LVP. There’s still a few theories that puppy-gate was just a launching pad for Ken Todd and Lisa to start yet another venture. Deep breaths everyone.
Hello Good Vibe Tribe! And welcome to Season 5 of Summer House! I’m particularly thrilled to be writing this recap because this is the full first season in the Hamptons we’ll be covering for Reality Tea! I’m an OG Summer House fan. I’ve watched every week from the very beginning. I even did a special recap of the Season 4 reunion last year. And I’ve consistently told friends, Twitter followers and anyone who would listen that it’s the most underrated show on Bravo. It doesn’t get nearly the love it deserves. And it’s managed to get better season after season while other, more popular shows (cough, Pump Rules, cough) have floundered and circled the drain.
I relate to these Housemates a thousand times more than the SURvers causing havoc in L.A. Maybe it’s because I’m a millennial journalist who lives in New York City, but these are my people. In fact, I’ve even had numerous run-ins over the years with former Summer House cast members just going about my day-to-day life in the city. I used to see Everett Weston on the train all the time around Union Square. One time, I bumped right into Lauren Wirkus as I was leaving the Nike store in Soho with a new pair of gym shoes. (She was lovely, so tall, and on her way home from a Fashion Week party. She was also more than willing to dish about how she wouldn’t be on the show for Season 3. The selfie we took was cute, even if she had to stoop down to my height for it.)
