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 Mathews from spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Does a birthday even count if it isn’t documented on social media? No, not these days. Even reality TV stars are all about celebrating a birthday with an Instagram post.
Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian all gathered to celebrate Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday. Kylie also kept the celebrations going with a birthday trip to Las Vegas.
After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimes all united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.
It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.
After years of hating on Lala Kent for her private jet access, all of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules caved and took her up on the offer to take a trip in the PJ. Yes, you read that right: ALL of the female cast members from Vanderpump Rules were on the same trip. Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Marie, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney all went on a girls trip- which was hopefully filmed for the show and chock full of some drama.
Other reality TV stars enjoyed the best of what the summer weather has to offer. Teen Mom cast member Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Real Housewives of Orange County alum Heather Dubrow enjoyed some pool time with her daughters. New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice played on the beach with her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice.
No one loves sharing photos as much as a proud mom. That’s why it’s not at all surprising that most of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from Mother’s Day. Some of them are moms and others just spent time with their own mothers. Did you even celebrate Mother’s Day if you didn’t post about it on Instagram? Apparently not.
Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks celebrated her first Mother’s Day by rocking matching dresses with her daughter Palmer. Vanderpump Rules cast member James Kennedy enjoyed a Mother’s Day brunch with his family at Villa Blanca. Scheana Marie’s ex Rob Valletta shared a selfie with his mom. Maybe he even hung up a TV for her in under seven minutes as a Mother’s Day gift.
If you have suffered through just one episode of MTV’s Floribama Shore then you realize what an insult it is to every true Jersey Shore fan. The network couldn’t leave well enough alone. You don’t mess with a classic!
Thankfully, the less than stellar predecessor of MTV’s greatest accomplishment has stirred up a frenzy surrounding the original gorilla juiceheads and orange meatballs, and we are going to be treated to Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Very soon we won’t have to merely rely on tiny blurbs about Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s alleged tax evasion or Vinny Guadagnino’s musings on global warming. We will have the whole gang back together again…with the exception of Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. However, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley is crossing her fingers for a change of
sweetheart–and so am I!
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice celebrated her oldest daughter Gia Giudice’s birthday with the rest of her family. Gia’s aunt Melissa Gorga also shared a photo with a sweet caption in honor of the big day. Margaret Josephs and her man Joe Benigno (the THIRD RHONJ husband named Joe) enjoyed a date night with friends. RHONJ alum Dina Manzo shared a selfie with her daughter Lexi.
The Jersey Shore cast is reuniting for a brand new reality show. Hopefully it’s better than that random thirty minute special where they drove around and got lunch which aired on E! early this year. This revival is Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Deena Nicole Cortese, Vinny Guadagnino, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro will all be back for the vacation. Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola will be skipping out on the fun, which is probably in her best interest since Ronnie is having a baby with someone else and she has a new relationship of her own. It’s not what’s best for the viewers, but it’s definitely a good move for her personally.
