Another milestone for Reality Tea as two writers have finally been hired following an intensive search that began a month ago.
Reality Tea continues to grow with March being our biggest month yet. Last month, we received over 729,000 unique visitors with over 3,055,000 page views. In other words, holy moly!
In other to continue to keep the site growing and most importantly, so I can
stop carrying my laptop with me to people’s weddings, family outings, & events a la Vicki Gunvalson stop having to work 365 days a year, it was the right time to get some new blood!
Following an applicant pool of over 280 interested writers, I was able to narrow it down to two phenomenal writers! Trust me folks, they are goooood. Below are the bios of the new assistant writer Lauren Rounsville and contributor Mary McClelland –
Lauren – Lauren is an attorney living in South Carolina who has been captivated by all things Beverly Hills, Bravo and Bieber. She loves 80’s sitoms (Benson, Silver Spoons, Magnum P.I.), 90’s country music (the cheesier the better) and the accessibility of pop culture in the (now not so new) millennium. When she’s not reading the latest tabloids, this former first grade teacher loves trying new food, hunting down designer bargains, watching college football, listening to Waylon Jennings, and patiently waiting for Andy Cohen to realize she’s his new best friend, second only to Ben Weiner. Oh, and drinking cheap wine. Duh.
Mary – Mary is an avid collector of vintage clothes, lover of vertiginous shoes, reader of delightful books, and a possessor of a degree in Sociology – the evidence of which now sits sadly and uselessly in a box in her basement. She became an apostate of bitchy gossip from an early age – waiting for her mother’s trips to the grocery store so she could read US Weekly with glee. Other than that she is a mama to a little boy and a basset hound named Theodore Lovely.
Lauren & Mary will begin reporting to duty tomorrow and from here on out, there will be a new byline on top of each story letting you know the author. I will continue to write majority of the stories for the blog.
And in the comments section of this post, please let us know what shows you would like us to cover, what types of stories you would love to see or any other amazing ideas you might have for the future of this blog. Thank you and I can assure you the best is yet to come for Reality Tea 🙂 – RT.
