The new Vanderpump Rules cast members, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni criticized Scheana Marie for being “boy crazy.” They’re not the only people gossiping about Schean’s love life though. Then again, this is reality TV, this comes with the territory.
This past summer there were rumors about Scheana hooking up with Shep Rose at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky. There has also been a long-time rumor about Scheana and Carl Radke from Summer House being more than just friends. They’ve copped to making out and hanging out, but it doesn’t seem like they ever actually dated. Scheana cleared up th rumors about her love life in the Bravo universe.
The influencer culture will always be fascinating. Yes, it makes sense that companies want famous people to use their products and attend events to bring more eyes to a business and earn more cash. However, it’s still ironic that people who have made it big and have more than enough money to spend actually get access to so many great things for free.
Andy Cohen went to see Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne in the play Chicago on Broadway. Instead of simply complimenting Erika on her performance, he complained about getting two free tickets instead of four. Not only that, but he also age shamed Erika’s costars. What happened to the down-to-earth guy that Bravo fans “met” years ago? We miss that man.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hasn’t even started yet but there is so much gossip coming out of this cast that I’m living for it all. The cast has been on what seems like a press tour, responding to all kinds of rumors about what’s going to happen this season. It does make me wonder if they can all live up to the hype now that we are going to see our first season minus Lisa Vanderpump. It does kind of seem like the cast is trying pretty hard to let us all know we won’t be disappointed and I hope we aren’t.
So let’s do a quick recap of what all the fuss has been about. First, there was the addition of new cast members Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke to help add some flair to the existing group. Then there are the lawsuits – Erika Jayne and husband Tom Girardi have been sued for an unpaid debt, calling the lawsuit a “publicity stunt”. Dorit Kemsley has not only been hounded by not only her own lawsuit but divorce rumors from husband PK Kemsley . They have both denied that they are headed for a split and tried hard to do some much needed damage control. Next we find out that Kim Richards is putting out an “unafraid and unapologetic” memoir that sister Kyle Richards didn’t even know she was writing.
Finally we come to the biggest doozy of them all, which will likely be a central story line on the season: the Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville hookup rumors. Unless you’ve been living under a rock completely devoid of all housewives news, you have likely heard plenty about this, with multiple cast members weighing in on their thoughts. Denise also responded to the rumors, vehemently denying she hooked up with Brandi or that she has an open marriage. Whew that was a ride.
Jennifer Aydin has been delivering the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey this season. She called Jackie Goldschneider cheap because of the birthday party that she gave her kids. Then, once Jennifer discovered that Jackie had family money, subjected Jackie to a financial interrogation that would make a detective proud. Jennifer squabbled with Margaret Josephs about whether Jennifer really has a job as a stay at home mom, or just has a nanny.
Once again, Jennifer and Melissa Gorga ended up fighting at a restaurant. Jennifer tossed her silverware at Melissa while Melissa was defending RHONJ co-star Jackie. I don’t think that Jennifer and Melissa will ever be besties. I also don’t think that the RHONJ cast is ever destined to finish a meal in peace. Once Jennifer swigs that tequila, all bets are off! I think that the only person Jennifer hasn’t had a beef with is her bestie, Teresa Giudice.
One of the most shocking moments on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was the altercation between Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub in a clothing boutique. Teresa Giudice and Danielle approached the other New Jersey Housewives to tell them to stop talking about Danielle. Words were hurled back and forth, and Margaret poured water over Danielle’s head.
That didn’t cool off Danielle’s temper. She dumped the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle. And just before leaving, Danielle grabbed Margaret’s ponytail and gave it a vicious tug. Of course, when Danielle left, Teresa went with her, but later returned.
Erika Jayne joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a friend of Yolanda Hadid. And, as a result, she did not warm up to Lisa Vanderpump that season. Or ever in general. Right away, Erika shared her distrust for LVP and infamously referred to her as a “sniper from the side.”
Obviously, Erika wasn’t sad when Lisa left the show. She even admitted this recently during an interview with Wendy Williams, who is getting a lot of Real Housewives tea these days.
Joe Giudice is playing a major role on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, even if it is by phone. Viewers listen in as he calls his family from the ICE detention center. We also hear him argue with, and insult his wife, Teresa Giudice. He even told her that no one would want her because she has too much baggage. In my opinion, the only baggage that Teresa has is living in Italy awaiting his final deportation decision.
It is clear that Joe and Teresa have gone their separate ways, although there is no official confirmation. Teresa and Joe’s four daughters spent the Christmas holiday with their father in Italy. Teresa spent Christmas Eve in the company of her high school boyfriend, “pool boy” Tony Delorenzo, at Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga’s house. I am rooting for Tony and Teresa to get together. Just saying.
For the most part, Real Housewives of New Jersey has come through with the entertainment season after season.
However, there’s one season that really wasn’t great. At all. I’ve always felt that there was one RHONJ season that should be wiped from the history books; i.e. the DVR. And I feel validated knowing that Andy Cohen feels the same way I do.
