Caroline Bedol’s brief tenure onBelow Deckwas fraught with histrionics and paranoia. Third Stews don’t have longevity on this show, but Caroline didn’t even get a full’s day work in. She was consistently unwell. A swollen foot was the only visible and concrete ailment.
Perhaps Caroline was truly a victim of a toxic atmosphere as she claimed. If so, she certainly would be faring better on land, right? You decide. There was a cringe-worthy call into Watch What Happens Live, and a welfare check to her home in December.
Triangles are the strongest shape in the world. That’s not the case when it comes to friendship. At the end of last season on the Real Housewives of New York, the friendship of Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley was reeling from some heavy, alcohol-laced hits. That meant Dorinda went from being the only cast member to be invited to Luann’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino—remember him?—to an enemy combatant. A frenemy who heckled Luann mercilessly during her cabaret show with cries of “Jovani.”
During the cabaret, Luann wore several Jovani gowns. Earlier in the season, Dorinda brought Luann to the Jovani showroom to check out dresses. Somehow that all melded together and Dorinda yelled out “Jovani” multiple times during Lu’s performance. But if you ask Dorinda, she insists, she was NOT heckling. Ummmm. What is her definition of heckling?
NeNe Leakes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been known for having some epic confrontations and for throwing a good ole theme party. In the last episode, NeNe threw a “Bye Wig” party and invited fellow cast mates to attend. The premise of the party was that the ladies would come to the party, free of their weaves and wigs. They let their natural hair (and their edges) run free.
#DogGate is a scandal that Dorit and PK would have preferred to keep private. Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards were dragged into #DogGate in the season’s opener when the ladies visited the adoption center and heard about Lucy’s ordeal from Lisa. Teddi subsequently admitted in a confessional that she already knew about Lucy’s ordeal courtesy of a Vanderpump Dog Foundation employee.
