The most wonderful day of the year is upon us! Valentines Day 2021 is here. In the middle of another strange year, let’s focus on some of the relationships that got us through tough times on our favorite Bravo shows. And of course, we’re going to cover the most dysfunctional ones too.
Love is real! Like reality TV.
We’re going to start out with a polarizing marriage from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. Love or hate Kyle, that’s a long time in Hollywood. Another notable couple is Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, who have been together for more than 20 years as well. Of course, we know Harry ventures off to sleep in a tent occasionally and we don’t blame him for that. Something must be working!
From The Real Housewives of Orange County, Heather Dubrow and Terry Dubrow were loved during their time on the show. You can still find Terry on Botched, but they walked away from Real Housewives with their marriage intact.
A new addition to the list would have to be Tiffany Moon and her husband Daniel Moon from the Real Housewives of Dallas. He seemed so excited about Tiffany’s pizza party planning and was so supportive of it all. We may not have seen much of him yet, but we like what we see!
Jill Zarin and Bobby Zarin stole viewer’s hearts on The Real Housewives of New York while Jill was still on the show. A few years after her departure from the series, Bobby passed away after a battle with cancer. Bobby was the ranch to Jill’s chicken tenders. The nacho to her cheese. And even after he hadn’t been on the shows for years, the loss was still felt. Rest in peace, Bawby!
We all love Bravo, but who are the best couples in love from our favorite television shows? Plus, a few dysfunctional ones for fun.
Onto the dysfunction.
On Vanderpump Rules, dysfunctional relationships thrived in the reality television environment. Drinking all day, working in a high-profile bar, staying up all night fueled by whatever it was – love was truly in the air.
Basically, any relationship Kristen Doute was a part of would quality. Kristen and Tom Sandoval, Kristen and James Kennedy, Kristen and Brian Carter. Dysfunction junction. Kristen is now dating Alex Menache but since she got fired before their relationship made it to the show, we don’t know much about it. Hopefully, Kristen has turned over a new leaf.
Jax Taylor would also win an award in this category. His time with Stassi Schroeder on the show was probably responsible for the wild ratings when it first came out. He also dated Laura Leigh, Carmen Dickman, Vail Bloom, and finally settled on Brittany Cartwright.
Don’t even get us started on Tom Girardi and Erika Jayne. The two are currently involved in a very complicated fraud scheme, as you probably know. Erika is playing coy on Instagram while Tom has pretend amnesia, or regular amnesia. We still aren’t sure which.
One thing we know for sure: don’t get a vow renewal if you are currently employed by Bravo. It almost always ends in divorce. Ask Shannon Storms Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, and Cynthia Bailey.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Bravo and Champagne & Shade!
