Vicki Gunvalson

Brielle-Biermann

The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.

Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.

Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.

In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.

And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami.  Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

Andy Cohen Moves Watch What Happens Live As He Readies for Baby

Andy Cohen is doing some major baby-prepping as he counts down to fatherhood. Andy first announced on December 20 on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that he is expecting a baby via surrogate.

During his announcement, the elated host stated, “Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science — if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks time I’m going to become a father.”

RHOC-Reunion-Kelly-Dodd

Season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County was, in all honesty, a snooze-fest. The biggest source of drama, other than Tamra Judge’s constant complaints about being Shannon Beador’s best friend, were the fireworks between OG Housewife Vicki Gunvalson and single (and oh-so-ready to mingle) Kelly Dodd.

Kelly accused Vicki of breaking “girl code” by going on a double-date with Vicki’s boyfriend, Steve Lodge,  one of Vicki’s friends, and Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd. She was furious by Vicki’s betrayal. Now, she isn’t a big fan of Steve’s, either. Still, that issue drove most of the season to its exciting lackluster conclusion.

Andy Cohen Reveals He is Having a Boy

Andy Cohen spilled some major tea of his own to Watch What Happens Live viewers on December 20 when he revealed that he is expecting a baby via surrogate. And really, there was no better way to make the revelation than being surrounded by the OG Real Housewives. Teresa Giudice, Ramona Singer, Kyle Richards, NeNe Leakes, and Vicki Gunvalson were all in attendance. Let the squabbling begin over who will be the baby’s godmother!

“Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks’ time, I’m going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future,” an emotional Andy said.

Why Bravo Needs to Bring Back These Housewives

As another year approaches, it is time to reflect upon the past, and dream about the future. As a reality television fanatic fan, my thoughts turn to which Housewives need to grace our television screens once again. Are you listening, Bravo?

Each Real Housewives franchise has seasons that are amazing and others that are boring less exciting. Often, the key is having the right number of newbies and franchise favorites. But what really makes sparks fly is when a Housewife returns to a show, resuming prior relationships and interacting with newer castmates. Here is my dream team of who needs to be, and deserves to be, a Housewife again.

OG Real Housewives Spill Tea On Watch What Happens Live- Ramona Singer Says Bethenny Frankel Is “Trying To Be” A Good Friend

The O Come OG Faithful episode of Watch What Happens Live was everything that I wanted and more. Andy Cohen gathered OG Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, and Kyle Richards for a special holiday celebration.

Before he provoked them to spill some tea and throw some shade, Andy announced, “Just so you know, Luann [de Lesseps] is doing her cabaret show tonight. Lisa Vanderpump is opening a restaurant in Las Vegas and she’s there prepping. Bethenny [Frankel] is under the weather.” To be fair, Bethenny almost died when she was hospitalized with an allergic reaction. To say that she was “under the weather” is an understatement.

Andy Cohen Is Going To Be A Father!

The Bravo viewers love Andy Cohen for getting Watch What Happens Live guests to spill the tea and share their secrets. However, he shared some major news of his own during last night’s episode. Andy is going to be a father!

Vicki-Gunvalson-Steve-Lodge

Say what you want about Vicki Gunvalson, but the woman really does know how to turn up on a vacation. Recently, she hosted a Vacation with Vicki event in Puerto Vallarta. As expected, she brought her man Steve Lodge along for the fun times.

Of course, she shared some photos from the trip. It’s safe to say that it was much more fun than any of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trips. Hopefully, it was devoid of arguing, meltdowns, see-through outfits, and Vicki’s unfortunate twerking.
