The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
After an unusually long hiatus, Dancing With The Stars is FINALLY waltzing its way back into our lives. We LOVE this show. It gives celebrities in need of spotlight some much needed extra attention. It’s usually stars we haven’t heard from in a while with nothing to lose by doing the show. There’s nothing that gives us more life than a D List celebrity attempting to dance.
This show is been a juggernaut for ABC, and that isn’t now changing anytime soon. The series has been a fan favorite since 2005 when General Hospital star Kelly Monaco samba’d to victory. Kelly powering through a wardrobe malfunction for a perfect score is still so iconic. She may have been the first, but there have been 26 winners since. Will will be the 28th? Luckily the cast is FINALLY revealed, and WHAT A LINEUP.
Brie and Nikki Bella were the standout cast members on Total Divas. So, of course, they got their own spin-off show Total Bellas. With two shows, their fans got to watch their lives all year long, essentially.
Now, the Bellas are done with the show that brought them into the mainstream. Does this mean that they are done with reality TV for good? Or will they just focus on their spin-off show?
What a journey Nikki Bella has been on since her split from John Cena last year! Fans of Total Bellas have seen Nikki embrace a new carefree rebellious attitude post engagement. She’s buying sports cars, smoking cigars, and FINALLY flirting again. This has been a far cry from the Nikki who was having a breakdown at her engagement party last year. Both her personal and professional lives are on the verge of reaching new heights in this next chapter.
Nikki’s recently HEADLINED THE FIRST EVER ALL WOMEN’S EVENT for WWE. That is a historic accomplishment that nobody can ever take away from ever. That event will go down as one of the greatest comebacks, and she did it alongside her sister Brie Bella and Ronda Rousey. On the personal side, she’s been somewhat shy at opening herself up to love again. However, we now have MAJOR updates on her status with WWE and the dating scene.
Orange County Housewives Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and Vicki Gunvalson dressed up as “old ladies” on the last episode and shared a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram.
Atlanta Housewife Porsha Williams and 90 Day Fiance cast member Elizabeth Potthast showed off their growing baby bumps.
Beverly Hills Housewives Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave shared photos from the cast trip in France. Lisa Vanderpump was not present. Obviously.
Andy Cohen united Mariah Carey and Sandra Bernhard while filming his radio show.
Khloe Kardashian, James Kennedy, Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, Brie Bella, and Nikki Bella all shared photos from the People’s Choice Awards.
Check out all of those photos and more from this week’s Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.

On tonight’s episode of Total Divas, the women are still in Lake Tahoe, but instead of the arguing and fighting from last week, there’s a lot of poetry, bonding and fighting fears going on tonight. Everybody hold hands and sing Kumbaya with me, okay?
On a serious note, it was actually a pretty cool episode. Here are women we know as characters on a show talking about their real-life fears. Let’s start with Trinity (Naomi) talking to Jon about wanting to live in Atlanta. She doesn’t want to move from Pensacola where Jon and his kids are. Trinity just wants a place to call her own in Atlanta so she can see her own family and friends who live there, maybe once a month. She wants to balance both Atlanta and Pensacola. Jon tells her she’s ‘trippin,’. Trinity tells Jon she’s getting an apartment with or without his consent.
On tonight’s episode of Total Divas, all hell breaks loose between Paige and Lana on what is supposed to be a bonding trip to Lake Tahoe, California.
Nikki Bella and Brie Bella have planned a trip to Lake Tahoe for Nattie, Nia Jax, Paige, Lana and Naomi (Trinity), but Naomi says she’ll be late because she needs to go see family in Atlanta. Naomi tells Lana not to be “Fireballed out by the time I get there. “Hell no,” laughs Lana.
On this week’s edition of Total Divas, there’s a lot of baby talk going on! First, cute couple and baby alert, it’s all about Bryan and Brie Bella and their baby Birdie. In this edition, it seems that the big Bulgarian brute, Rusev, is having baby pangs and later, a visit to the Bryan house only makes it worse. At 32-years-old, he’s starting to wonder if he and Lana are ever going to have kids. Does Lana change her mind and want to start having children?
In Worcester, Massachusetts, Paige is struggling to figure out what life beyond the ring would look like since she can’t wrestle anymore due to injury. She’s getting ready for another WWE event, but she talks to behind-the-scenes announcer Dasha about what she would be doing if she wasn’t in the WWE. Dasha says she would be a doctor. Lana shares that she was once a receptionist at a hair salon. Paige was a telemarketer, bouncer, and bartender, but never really had a summer job. Her one goal was professional wrestling, a family vocation and now she has to think about what else she could do. This is hard for her, especially since she didn’t go to school.
