As both the Real Housewives of New York and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seasons are winding down, it is time to start thinking about the reunions. Some of us look forward to the Housewife reunions as we hope to get all of our burning questions answered. Others know that the answers the ladies give are often phony, evasive, self-serving or disingenuous. Of course, that doesn’t stop us from watching–or having opinions!
Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen is forced to be a jack-of-all trades to get the ladies to confess to their social crimes, apologize to their wronged co-stars and make up by the end of the reunion. Which, any way you look at it, is a Herculean task. You have to wonder how he does it. Reunion after reunion. Andy recently shared which of the reunions have been the most difficult for him to manage–it must have been hard to pick just a few!
In addition to being the patriarch, godfather, and ultimate supreme ruler of all things Real Housewives, Andy Cohen is a new dad and the host of Bravo’s late night talk show, Watch What Happens Live. As the first openly gay American late night talk show host, Andy has long been an eloquent and gracious advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
New York City is currently hosting WorldPride, the world’s largest Pride event, spanning the entire month of June. The Bravo network is known for its support of the LGBTQ+ community. So it is no surprise that Bravo and Andy have a float in the parade this year.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have seen the Giudice girls grow up since Season 1. Teresa Giudice even gave birth to Audriana Giudice on camera. Now it’s just so surreal to know that Gia Giudice is about to be a college freshman. Long gone are the days of posing for the cameras and trying to make it as a child star.
Now, it feels like Gia is all grown up. Gia recently went to prom with Dolores Catania’s son Frankie Catania. It’s very unclear if the two of them are dating or if they just went to prom as old friends. But, how beautiful would this couple be?
Real Housewives of Potomac is back, and one thing is obvious: Gizelle Bryant and Grande Dame Karen Huger need to have a serious talk about where their friendship is headed. And there can be only one Queen of Potomac, ladies!
After doubting that Karen even lived in her new mansion last season, Gizelle tried to smooth things over by delivering some home-made cookies to Karen’s home. Karen opened the door, accepted the cookies, but did not invite Gizelle in. At least it wasn’t sprinkle cookies. Remember when Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga infamously brought the dreaded cookies to her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice?
Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. Bridezilla Danielle Staub got married to Marty Caffrey. And then divorced him a few
minutes months later. Margaret Josephs pushed Marty into Jennifer Aydin’s pool. Teresa Giudice dealt with her husband Joe Giudice’s possible deportation by dropping a bomb at the RHONJ reunion. If her husband is deported, they will split up.
During the New Jersey ladies’ trip to Cabo last season, all the claws came out. Margaret compared Jennifer’s plump lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” And at one crazy dinner, Danielle screamed at Margaret that if she was a better person, she would get to visit with her grandkids. Aren’t kids supposed to be off-limits? Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle. So, Danielle retaliated by throwing a glass, and hitting Melissa Gorga. Melissa thought that Jennifer threw the glass at her, but tequila-monster Jennifer smashed a glass and held it up to Melissa. And Teresa somehow backed up Danielle over her sister-in-law and her best friend Dolores Catania.
Good news for Joe Giudice. No, it’s not the big news people have been waiting on. He did not win his deportation battle. However, he did get some small victory in this ongoing saga.
Joe gets to stay in the United States while the decision-making process plays out. However, is still in ICE custody. It does not seem like he will return to Teresa Giudice and their four daughters at home anytime soon. If at all.
It seems that Real Housewives of New Jersey’s alum Jacqueline Laurita and her husband, Chris Laurita, are continuing to experience financial difficulties. Fans haven’t heard very much about their financial issues lately, but Jacqueline has been quick to weigh in on everything else RHONJ.
Jacqueline told the world that the franchise needs “OG” Caroline Manzo back, and that Caroline is the bona-fide “queen of that show.” Jacqueline also criticized former bestie, and current straight-up enemy, Teresa Giudice’s plans to ditch her husband Joe Giudice if he is deported to Italy.
Bravo’s most popular executive, Andy Cohen, recently had a baby boy this year. The initial news was a surprise to everyone. Especially to the OG housewives, Kyle Richards, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, Ramona Singer, and Vicki Gunvalson who were in attendance when Andy dropped the bombshell he was having a baby in just six weeks on Watch What Happens Live.
Kyle immediately threw an epic baby shower with almost all of the Real Housewives in attendance. Shortly after, little Benjamin Allen Cohen was born. Since then, Andy has been out and about with the baby, even flying with him on planes. It seems to me he would eventually need a babysitter. Someone from the cast of Vanderpump Rules seems like a good idea, no?
