With the latest season of Southern Charm wrapping and the newest season of Summer House beginning, what better time to announce Bravo’s newest love child? Personally, I’m still reeling from the final Southern Charm reunion episodes. I’m also living with their off-camera drama that simply REFUSES to quit. There are levels to this shit.
And then there’s Summer House. So far they’ve featured an entire sandwich debate and a seriously brutal love triangle. Need I say more? With coronavirus mucking up filming and production plans all over the place, it seems Bravo has found yet another answer to fill the content void. MIX AND MATCH THE MAYHEM! This mash up is about to be a train wreck of epic proportions. Several bravo casts are seemingly making their way up the coast to start a whole new series!
It’s only been a couple days since Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11 started, but I’m already worn out from this Teresa Giudice vs. Jackie Goldschneider feud. Teresa shouldn’t have spread rumors about Evan cheating on Jackie.
Jackie shouldn’t have mentioned Gia Giudice’s name in their discussion. After the fact, Jackie claims she was making an analogy to get Teresa to understand how she felt. Instead of referencing the many cheating claims against both Teresa and Joe Giudice, she decided to bring up Gia “snorting cocaine in the bathroom at parties.” After that, Teresa cursed her out and left the building.
That Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11 premiere episode was unreal. Teresa Giudice took it upon herself to spread rumors about Evan Goldschneider cheating on Jackie Goldschneider without offering any receipts.
Jackie confronted Teresa about the impact of her spreading these allegations and she used a failed analogy about Gia Giudice snorting cocaine in the bathroom at parties. In real time, Jackie has no regrets for mentioning Gia. And, of course, Teresa has no regrets for gossiping about Evan at his own birthday party. It’s just ironic and hypocritical to do that considering how upset she was when people accused her and Joe Giudice of cheating on each other.
Was Elizabeth Frankini the best stew in Below Deck history? Nope. Not by a long shot, but neither was Francesca Rubi. These two couldn’t get on the same page professionally and personally during the most recent season. Ashling Lorger doesn’t think the firing was personal, but Elizabeth (and many Below Deck viewers) beg to differ.
The firing was definitely pretty strange though. Captain Lee Rosbach didn’t fire Elizabeth himself. Instead, he had Francesca do it. Not only that, but she got the boot right before the end of the charter season. What was even the point of that? Why not do it sooner?
As Jackie Goldschneider said during the premiere episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11, Teresa Giudice has had a rough decade. Unfortunately, Teresa lost a lot of sympathy from viewers when she started spreading cheating claims about Jackie’s husband.
Prior to all that, she was just having fun on the show… for the first two seasons anyway. In Season 3, her family members Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile joined the show without telling her. They feuded for years. Then, she and her now-ex-husband Joe Giudice served back-to-back jail stints. Her mother passed away. Joe Giudice got deported. Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father died. She’s definitely had a lot going on, in the public eye, while raising four daughters.
The thirst is real. If you missed the recent Watch What Happens Live episode where Andy Cohen hosts two of the Below Deck stews, I cannot recommend you go watch enough. Elizabeth Frankini did not let Ashling Lorger off the hook for her fake behavior this season. Actually, neither did Andy. And while Ashling continues to claim her behind-the-back shit talking and to-her-face kindness was “professionalism”, her off-camera commentary just doesn’t seem to end.
Watching the season-long tension build only to have Elizabeth fired in the final episode was chaos! I wanted to watch the 2-stew-crew decide whether or not she really was more work to keep around. Yet another hope dashed by the coronavirus. Either way, I’m feeling optimistic that we’ll have a reunion that is absolutely popping.
Jackie Goldschneider’s analogy about Gia Giudice “snorting cocaine in the bathroom at parties” sent Teresa Giudice into a rage during the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11 premiere episode. Yes, for the millionth time, Jackie Stans, I know she was making an analogy. Yes, I agree Teresa was completely out of line for spreading cheating rumors about Evan Goldschneider.
However, there are many analogies that Jackie could have used instead to get her point across. In one interview, Gia’s aunt Melissa Gorga said it’s hard to be in the middle of this feud because she “loves Jackie”
with no mention of Teresa and her niece. But, in another interview, she said “It’s one thing when we’re talking about us, it’s another thing when we bring kids in. I never want to bring [up] a child — even if they’re 18, whatever, however old they are.” So, what did Melissa say during filming? Did she have this same energy on Gia’s behalf? Apparently not, according to Joe Giudice, who obviously didn’t take part in the filming due to his deportation and has zero firsthand knowledge. And, once again, he’s calling out Melissa.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel sounds like she isn’t planning on returning to the franchise for a third time. In August of 2019, she announced that she was leaving RHONY. And Bethenny made it clear that she didn’t enjoy filming the show.
Then we have Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Lisa Barlow. Like Bethenny, Lisa is a strong woman and entrepreneur. Lisa said that the most common misunderstanding about her is that “I’m a bitch.” She clarified, “I’m not a bitch. I have a backbone.”
