With Scandoval dominating headlines in all places, it’s arduous to not side-eye your companion for purchasing a lightning bolt necklace. Bravo followers have been shell-shocked since information dropped that Tom Sandoval cheated on his Vanderpump Rules costar and companion of 9 years, Ariana Madix. With another castmate, no much less.
However that is hardly the primary time we’re seeing this level of cheating. In any case, 80% of cheating on Bravo has taken place on VPR alone. That’s not an precise statistic as a result of I’m not an analyst. However I’m a shameless over-consumer of Bravo, which just about makes me a Ph.D within the arts. And by arts I imply the power to stare at my tv for hours on finish watching straight mess.
Both approach, Scandoval bought me enthusiastic about the opposite instances followers endured a dishonest scandal on Bravo. So listed here are my high picks for the ugly, the indefensible, the downright disrespect that has been inflicted upon
us by the under Bravolebrities.
It’s About Tom. No, The Different Tom
Let’s face it, when Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps discovered love once more, we had been skeptical. After being launched by Dorinda Medley (pink flag numero uno), Lu started a whirlwind romance with Tom D’Agostino.
Often known as a person about city, Tom had already dated castmates Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. I do know these girls run in the identical circles however may they not discover one other bald middle-aged man to suck face with? Harry Dubin has been thoroughly worn out however there should be different males in a metropolis of eight million folks.
Regardless, Lu couldn’t be deterred and it appeared as if she relished in being “picked” by this sloppy thirds of a person. They got engaged and shortly thereafter, Bethenny Frankel despatched up a flare with the largest warning of all of them. She sat Lu down (in entrance of cameras, something Lu would later blast her for), to interrupt some information.
Luann, sensing the hazard forward, mentioned “Please don’t let it’s about Tom.” To which Bethenny replied, “It’s about Tom.” A meme and loads of merch was born from the phrase. Actually, I nonetheless say “It’s about Tom” once I’m about to drop unhealthy information. A lot to the confusion of whoever I’m talking with.
However the information was much less of a success with Luann. Bethenny confirmed her an image of her beloved making out with one other lady at The Regency. The resort bar is now a historic landmark for Bravo followers and has a 4.5 star rating on Trip Advisor. Is it the free wifi? Or the affiliation with one among Bravo’s largest dishonest scandals? Who’s to say?
The Countess Luann, who gave up her title to marry this bozo, went ahead with the Palm Beach nuptials anyway. And he or she was over the moon….for a really quick time frame. I don’t know if she spent too lengthy at sea on Tom’s much-talked about yacht or if she simply couldn’t stand to confess defeat. However after seven months (what’s it with seven months?), the couple filed for divorce.
The divorce hit Lu arduous. Her subsequent storyline featured her spiral into the underbelly of Palm Seashore divorcee life. It resulted in an evening of drunken debauchery, beforehand solely seen by the likes of Tinsley Mortimer. Luann assaulted a police officer, threatened to “kill you all,” and got arrested. Then went to rehab. And finally bought an condo overlooking Tom’s terrace, which could as properly have been a yacht docked subsequent to his in Palm Seashore.
Naturally, Lu bounced again, as a result of she’s a survivor. The RHONY star turned to cabaret to heal her damaged coronary heart. Lu’s exhibits are nonetheless touring the nation, taking many a small venue by storm. For his half, Tom got engaged precisely 5 years to the day of his wedding ceremony anniversary with Luann. Which is really a cherry on high of the crap sundae that’s this man. Good riddance, Tom!
Kay’s Cheat-o-Meter Score – 6/10. As a result of the one particular person except for Luann who didn’t see this coming was Ramona’s canine Coco, who was blind. RIP.
The Morally Corrupt Kelsey Grammer
Camille Grammer burst onto the scene of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with
pretend bewbs weapons blazing. The housewife relished in the truth that she was married to big-time TV star Kelsey Grammer. And by no means allow us to overlook it.
Regardless of Camille name-dropping her husband more durable than Ken Todd being pushed right into a pool, don’t you dare counsel that Camille isn’t vital in her personal proper. Kyle Richards discovered herself on the previous Donatacci’s unhealthy aspect after Camille claimed Kyle mentioned nobody would need to go to Hawaii if Kelsey wasn’t there. Wealthy folks probz, ammirite?
In the meantime, Kyle was probably spot on as a result of Camille actually was unbearable. A sentiment shared by her uninterested husband. However what Camille lacked in humility, she made up for in dedication. Willpower to proceed presenting her crumbling marriage as completely happy.
Too unhealthy the facade was blown to items when Camille introduced her castmates to New York to see the premiere of Kelsey’s Broadway play. You recognize, the one which nobody may pronounce. Whereas Camille slapped a smile on her face, it was later revealed that Kelsey solely needed her on his decrepit arm for the press. Prone to cowl up his budding affair.
After that fateful night time, Camille was knocked off her Hawaiian excessive horse when Kelsey blindsided her with a divorce. Which solely turned extra diabolical as she put the items collectively. Primary- He bought an condo in New York to be “shut” to his play. Quantity two- Camille wasn’t precisely invited to stay there. And at last, it was his thought for her to affix RHOBH. Why? To maintain her busy in Beverly Hills whereas he cheated with a flight attendant.
Two weeks after his divorce from Camille was finalized, Kelsey married said flight attendant, who shall not be named. Camille acquired a hefty payout, guaranteeing that she wouldn’t have to return to dancing in a cage for MTV.
However the actual crime is that this synthetic his fortune on a present that featured the road “tossed salad and scrambled eggs” in its theme tune. Fortunately, it lined Camille’s pockets and Kelsey can hand around in New York as a lot as he needs. In all probability at The Regency. I hear they’ve free wi-fi.
Kay’s Cheat-o-Meter Score – 5/10. Factors had been deducted for lack of creativity. A Hollywood massive shot dumping his spouse for a youthful lady? And it wasn’t even a co-star however a daily ole civilian? Newbie hour.
Rawt In Hell
Lengthy earlier than Sandoval was a dishonest liar face, Jax Taylor had the title of largest scumbag on VPR all wrapped up. However nothing made him scummier than his dalliance with then-castmate Faith Stowers. On the time of his infidelity, he was relationship former Hooters waitress/Kentucky proud girlfriend Brittany Cartwright.
Because the story goes, Jax slept with Religion on the sofa of an aged lady whom Religion was tasked with caring for. Not precisely the attractive hookup one would anticipate from our SURvers. However Jax was all the time a “strike whereas the iron’s scorching” sort of man. And on this case, the recent iron occurred to be a sleeping senior citizen.
Jax denied it, Brittany forgave him, and he broke up with her anyway. They bought again collectively as a result of Brittany has a mind the dimensions of a fried rooster wing, and so they had been “in a greater place.” That’s till Ariana played audio of Jax trashing Brittany to Religion in entrance of everybody, prompting Brittany to later inform Jax to “RAWT IN HELL!”
Alas, he did no such factor. Extra like Brittany joined him to rawt within the hell of her personal making. As a result of they got engaged at some crab shack and eventually married at some fort in Kentucky. Which was mainly the marriage venue equal of a crab shack. Settle down, Kentuckians. I’ll hate on any “fort” overtaken by these two goons to be joined in unholy matrimony. Don’t even get me began on the pastor state of affairs.
Anyway, after viewers needed to undergo by way of a season dedicated to their wedding ceremony, the 2 had been dumped by the present. In all probability as a result of Jax hadn’t cheated in a minute (that we all know of), rendering the couple ineffective.
Bizarre to suppose that these two are the one VPR couple to have survived. However low requirements will try this to folks. So will years of ingesting Pumptinis, which certainly can’t be good in your mind cells.
Kay’s Cheat-o-Meter Score – 8/10. Jax’s unconventional scene of infidelity is what nightmares are product of. I want that courageous, senior soul had come ahead together with her account, ideally as a sit-down interview with Oprah.
The Pretend Most cancers Romancer
Vicki Gunvalson is the one homespouse that made my listing of cheaters. The Real Housewives of Orange County OG actually misplaced the plot, and the viewers, when she began relationship southern un-gentleman Brooks Ayers.
Everybody, actually everybody, warned Vicki that Brooks was unhealthy information. However within the final twist, Vicki was the actual cheat as a result of it was later revealed that Vicki cheated on Saint Donn Gunvalson with Brooks. It broke up her marriage and her children refused to simply accept Brooks into her life.
Allegations of Brooks dishonest continued, however Vicki ignored all of it for the sake of martyrdom. Keep in mind how she later claimed that she was being nailed to the cross like Jesus? However Jesus by no means stood by a person pretending to have cancer in a ploy for relevance and presumably a brand new set of chompers.
Finally, Vicki kicked Brooks out of her life. However being the barnacle that he’s, he continued to hold across the Bravo universe. He even had a sit down with Andy Cohen to debate his massive most cancers lie. Completely pointless provided that Justice Warrior/My Queen Meghan King had solved the thriller from the very starting.
Vicki was in the end booted off the show a number of seasons later however continued to make headlines for dating dirtbags. After a number of seasons on pause, Vicki is again on the upcoming season of RHOC. Minus a person who as soon as mentioned at a dinner desk stuffed with those who his favourite factor about Vicki is her vagina.
Kay’s Cheat-o-Meter Score – 4/10. Level added for being the one lady on a listing of horrible males. However a number of factors had been deducted for forcing us to sit down by way of dental movie of Brooks’ outdated enamel.
Right here Lies Shannon Beador
My primary choose for the worst dishonest scandal on Bravo is the story of Shannon Beador and her overly hair-gelled husband, David Beador. Once we met Shannon on RHOC, she was a tiny, environmentally pleasant, feng shui ball of insecurity. Why? Due to DAVID. Sure, I mentioned it. It’s all his fault. And all the time shall be.
As Shannon walked us by way of her seemingly charmed life, one thing was positively amiss in her supposedly energy-cleansed mansion. The vitality wasn’t clear in any respect. She revealed that the couple slept in several rooms as a result of she appreciated to go to mattress early and he snored. They fought in entrance of cameras and solid. He ate chips whereas she toiled over a home-cooked meal. A real monster!
Shannon, in her very first season on the present, confessed that David was cheating. And needed a divorce. Which her castmates had been all too completely happy to enjoy. It was fairly gross once I watched it again.
However Shannon was as tenacious as she was insecure, leading to her desperately clinging to the stays of her marriage. The 2 went to some woo-woo marriage retreat, designed to
humiliate all concerned work by way of their points. And by points, I imply David and David alone. All the time David.
The results of one counseling session is among the all-time finest Bravo clips ever to grace our screens. Shannon lay at a fake gravestone whereas David bent over her to inform Lifeless Shannon what he ought to have informed Alive Shannon. Right here lies the scream that I screamed once I noticed this scene.
In fact, nothing may save their train wreck of a marriage. And I don’t suppose David ever stopped dishonest. Insert *as soon as a cheater, all the time a cheater Rachel Green_gif.*
David, the one man on this listing with a full head of hair (Jax’s hairline is completely failing), has been banished into obscurity by Our Woman Pamela Anderson, Patron Saint of Placing Up with Zero Bullshit by Any Man. (Please watch her documentary for context). David is now caught with a dehydrated new spouse, pulling stunts like posting their flat asses naked within the woods on social media.
As for Shannon, she is flourishing. Regardless of a recent breakup, she’s my favourite post-cheating scandal success story. Whilst a brand new housewife, she bared her worst moments of ache to the viewers. And in the end prevailed to take edibles at a celebration together with her castmates on the present that made her well-known.
From in search of validation by way of fake dying to being the face of a national television ad for an e-commerce delivery firm? Feels like Shannon is the blueprint for popping out on high of a dishonest scandal. Put that in your bag of chips and smoke it, David.
Kay’s Cheat-o-Meter Score – 10/10. No notes.
Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein is perhaps struggling one among the most humiliating cheating scandals on Bravo by the hands of her husband, Dr. Lenny Hochstein. Whereas it’s salacious, egregious, and grounds for shaving Lenny’s head whereas he sleeps, it’s too new to be a full characteristic right here. As particulars proceed to emerge, I’m positive Lisa and Lenny’s dishonest drama shall be a part of my subsequent listing. Pending editor approval.
I’m So Glad Juan Dixon Isn’t Here Right Now has additionally earned himself an honorable point out. Not as a result of he’s a confirmed cheater however as a result of, properly, shut sufficient. When Real Housewives of Potomac star Robyn Dixon lastly admitted that Juan might be on the wrong side of #herstory, followers had been like, “Duh.”
However Robyn maintained that Juan did NOT cheat on her. It’s rumored that the episode passed off after Robyn underwent a full lobotomy. Don’t ask me for a supply on this as a result of it solely exists in my creativeness, okay?
Anyway, Robyn regaled us with a story of Juan being a knight in shining armor for a Canadian lady who was simply attempting to get laid by a professional baller (not Juan) throughout a world pandemic. So he confirmed up in particular person to provide her his bank card to pay for a resort room so she may sleep with mentioned (different) athlete? What was he alleged to do? Thoughts his personal enterprise and let some rando undergo at a Purple Roof Inn? No sir. Not on his watch.
Let’s face it, Robyn is aware of how ridiculous it sounds. And he or she is aware of that Juan might be a cheater. However she’s endured years of dysfunction with this man. And is setting herself up for a lot of, many extra. Now, all we’d like is to deploy the headscarf sign to alert Meghan King to a different thriller that have to be solved. As a result of this Joker will definitely strike once more.
