Leah McSweeney is a lot of things. New cast member on Real Housewives of New York. Drunken mess. Ramona Singer frenemy. Fan favorite. It’s true, fans love Leah. She’s a breath of fresh air on what I would call a vintage franchise. Leah has even called for more diversity amongst the cast, something we haven’t seen since Jules Wainstein in season 8.
But Leah isn’t without controversy. She has a past of controversial statements. She wrote a piece about “toxic femininity”. And according to Ramona, she has a serious drinking problem. That might have something to do with Leah claiming Ramona poops during sex in a now-infamous Cameo. But either way, Leah is going there and Ramona, for once, is powerless to stop her.
We all know that Jerry O’Connell and his wife Rebecca Romijn are Bravo superfans, but how far does that fandom go?
During last night’s Watch What Happens Live, a viewer called in to ask, “Have you ever roleplayed with Rebecca in the bedroom as any Bravo couple? If so, who was it?” What a question! And Jerry’s answer even had the normally talkative Andy Cohen, sitting there speechless.
It’s no secret that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Vanderpump Rules superfans. Both of them constantly tweet about their obsession. The couple also appeared opposite the cast on an episode of Family Feud. Plus, Chrissy is the only most famous person to care about Meemaw’s Beer Cheese. Who could ever forget the couple singing the show’s theme song on Watch What Happens Live!?
This level of super-fandom has even made Chrissy Kyle Richards’ top choice to join the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s safe to say that many Bravolebrities view Chrissy as a huge step up from everyone they know friend. So much so that she and John are invited to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding!
Could you imagine going from being a Real Housewives superfan to actually interacting with them? What about being in a feud with one of the Housewives? That sounds both thrilling and terrifying, depending on the Real Housewife, of course.
Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn have been very vocal about their love for the Real Housewives franchise. They’ve both appeared on Watch What Happens Live many times to share their opinions (and throw some shade). They’ve even hung out with the Housewives outside of WWHL. Usually, they’re well-received by the Housewives, but that was not the case when they met Brandi Glanville.
Jill Zarin and Rebecca Romijn were guests on Watch What Happens Live tonight and we got some insight into how Jill feels about her broken friendship with Bethenny Frankel. Rebecca, who is a total Real Housewives superfan (along with her husband Jerry O’Connell), shared her thoughts on the Brooks Ayers cancer storyline.
First, I have to give Jill a little shoutout. I don’t know what’s in the water in NYC, but the ladies all seem to be aging backwards! Jill looked amazing tonight – the photo above doesn’t do her justice.
The upcoming seventh season of Lifetime’s Project Runway, set to premier Jan. 14 (10 p.m. EST), will once again include a number of Celebrity guest judges.
Nicole Richie will serve as the first guest judge on the season premiere of the design competition. “Nicole is a fabulous guest judge,” said Project Runway executive producer Sara Rea. “She has strong opinions and gives clear and specific constructive criticism to the designers. Also, she isn’t afraid to disagree with the other judges.”
Nicole, who currently has her own fashion line and a line of jewelry, taped the premiere episode last summer before giving birth to her son Sparrow in September.
Celebrity guest judges from last season included Christina Aguilera, Rebecca Romijn, Eva Longoria Parker, Lindsay Lohan and Cindy Crawford.
