Reality Tea

Kelly & Shannon argue in the bathroom

That last Real Housewives of Orange County episode was epic. Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd going at it in the restaurant was a shit show and a half. The part that is so strange to me though is that Lydia McLaughlin is actually the one who invited Kelly to the restaurant, yet Shannon is mad at Kelly for “ambushing” her. Lydia could have/should have given Shannon a heads up about the invite.

Now Lydia is playing the innocent card (yet again) wondering why Shannon went off on Kelly for innocently walking into the bathroom and why Kelly took it way too far by telling her to “keep eating.”

Kelly Dodd already admitted on Watch What Happens Live that she had zero regrets about her behavior at The Quiet Woman. The Real Housewives of Orange County star elaborates on her thoughts over the episode in her newest blog entry.

She shares a bit of background on how the night unraveled, “Before I jump fully into the Shannon-igans at The Quiet Woman, I want to explain something…as you saw, Lydia actually invited me to dinner when she was riding in Peggy’s Ferrari. I thought Tamra was going to dinner, but I wasn’t sure about Shannon. Regardless, I had to decline because my dear friend had family visiting from Philadelphia and they invited Michael and me for a sunset cruise on Newport Harbor. That’s where I was when Lydia called – enjoying a beautiful day with close friends on the water, sharing some great wine and hors d’oeuvers.”

On Below Deck Mediterranean, the natives are restless. I repeat: the natives are restless. Atomic wedgies are being given, crew alliances are shifting, and primary charter guests are making the Sirocco their own personal swingers club. And just when you think the crew love triangle between Malia White, Adam Glick and Wesley Wiz Walton has possibly come to an end, it rears its ugly head again, all because no one involved in it can let go. Looks like the crew knows a thing or two about swinging.

We resume in Dubrovnik, the scene of Adam giving Wiz an unwarranted wedgie with so much force, that it actually rips Wiz’s underpants. Wiz, of course, is not happy and a small scuffle ensues, with only Hannah Ferrier there to separate them from a full on noogie battle to the death. Of course I can’t blame Wiz for being bright red with anger over having his underwear ripped up his butt – not only is that incredibly uncomfortable (I’m assuming) but ridiculously childish.

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes threw a party this weekend with a theme I don’t understand. At all. The concept appeared to be wear white, bring a gay guy friend, come over to gush over NeNe’s newish multi-million dollar home, and in some cases, get thrown out for assaulting another guest. Anyway, the official title was “Gurls & Gays” but the official hashtag was “NeNeNeverForget”.

I believe this is NeNe’s first “event” since rejoining Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and she also got to show off her home in the process. Since homes are the source of such contentions in this group! Most of the cast attended – including Kim Zolciak who embroiled Kenya Moore in some mighty Wigs-N-Cigs drama!

Heather Dubrow

It was safe to assume that Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd were not be upset when they found out Heather Dubrow would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County. She did not get along with Kelly from the jump and she was on Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador’s side of their feud against Vicki.

Now we don’t have to just assume that Vicki and Kelly were happy that Heather left the show because they both just confirmed the sentiment.

This has definitely been a frustrating charter season for Below Deck Mediterranean star Hannah Ferrier. She had tension with pretty much everyone on the boat except for Lauren Cohen– and then there’s that whole hookup with a charter guest and what I’ve started to call iPad-gate.

The drama sounds like a lot to handle and then on top of that she actually has a job to do which seems like a whole lot of work.

Ramona-Singer-Tinsley-Mortimer-Red-Face-Mexico-RHONY

Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan racing through rental properties like hellhounds in heat is not a new sight for loyal viewers of The Real Housewives Of New York. For Tinsley Mortimer, however, it was a brand new obnoxious experience! And she’s still a bit shell shocked from it. In her blog, Tinsley calls out Ramona’s enormous sense of entitlement, and her egging-on Sonja to be angry at Tinsley for not handing her room over to them instead of trip organizer, Bethenny Frankel.

First, Tinsley gushes about her new man, Scott, who Carole Radziwill set her up with – and who she’s still seeing! “Having just come off a super fun and spontaneous five-day-long date with Scott, I was feeling super rested and happy and excited for a fun girls’ trip to Mexico. We were having so much fun that first night that Scott decided we should continue the date in Miami where we spent another four amazing days together. Thanks to Carole, this is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me. I can’t believe how lucky I feel to have met Scott!”

Melissa-Gorga

It’s good to be Melissa Gorga these days. If you follow her on Instagram, it seems like she is having the summer of her life with beach vacation after beach vacation. I do not blame her though, I feel like anyone would need a few beach trips to recover after filming a Real Housewives of New Jersey season.

Unfortunately, the RHONJ viewers never get to see these fun, family beach trips on the show. That’s probably because they don’t provide any drama, but they sure do look relaxing and Melissa’s bathing suits are dope (and are the perfect way to promote her store Envy, obviously).
