Reality Tea

In a pretty surprising turn of events, Real Housewives Of Dallas has turned into the gift that keeps on giving. The entire cast actually shows up to group functions. The story lines don’t drag on longer than they should and everyone has relationships that exist outside of the show. They even have the perfect balance of arguing and turning up.

Basically, the Texans are giving us everything that the Orange County Housewives forgot how to do. One person who is constantly delivering the entertainment is Brandi RedmondSome people find her to be hilarious and others are not on board with her brand of humor- cough cough Kameron WrstcottNevertheless, Brandi someone that always keeps things interesting.

Lydia McLaughlin has left us all confused this season. She’s been both the voice of reason and a total pot-stirrer who finds herself iced out, but she certainly never lacks for finding herself in the midst of drama.

The Real Housewives Of Orange County star warns that there is still plenty of craziness in store – especially once the cast lands in Iceland “I feel like this season finally really picks up and everybody is together and we leave the country together so there’s nowhere to hide, conversations have to happen,” Lydia shared. “People have to talk or express how they’re feeling about one another.”

Kail Lowry & Javi Marroquin On Marriage Bootcamp

Kailyn Lowry officially called it quits with Javi Marroquin by allegedly cheating on him while he was deployed. After their breakup, the exes paid a visit to Marriage Boot Camp, where Javi hoped to save their marriage and work through infidelity, but Kail, well, she had different plans (like a baby in the belly!).

On the Friday premiere, Kail revealed that she did not consider it cheating when she started seeing Chris Lopez, because she and Javi were already separated. Kail also claimed Javi lied that he had filed for divorce. Javi denies this. “I did, in my heart, kind of hope this bootcamp would make her fall in love with me,” the Teen Mom 2 dad confessed. “So I still held on.”  

Melissa & Joe Gorga

If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.

The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy. 

Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed

Although Shahs of Sunset is far from being the fun show that it used to be, these people really bring it when they appear on Watch What Happens Live. The shade throwing and tea spilling was at a high point when Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed stopped by the clubhouse.

Reza threw some major shade at Shervin Roohparvar. Mike continued to talk shit about Asa Soltan Rahamti. These two did not hold back at all.

D'Andra Simmons

Based on the last Real Housewives of New York season and the current Real Housewives of Dallas season, I feel like every Real Housewives cast needs to go on an annual Mexico trip. These episodes have the best mix of drama and fun times.

The episodes have also showed us a different side of D’Andra Simmons, who has had the tough task of being LeeAnne Locken’s best friend and joining the cast as friend of Kameron Westcott‘s –  who is far from a fan favorite.  I’m sure D’Andra had some vicarious stress since pretty much everyone else in the cast was arguing, but she managed to turn up and make some peace without overdoing it with the meddling.

Shahs of Sunset - Season 6

Well, another season of Shahs of Sunset has officially drawn to a close and instead of Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi ending up as the outcast of the season, instead we find Persian Pop Priestess and staple cast member, Asa Soltan Rahmati, exiled from this group of overgrown hooligans.

I think we all saw it coming when bestie/worstie of friends Reza Farahan didn’t exactly jump to Asa’s defense during her falling out with Mercedes “MJ” Javid over whether or not Asa used IVF to conceive her “miracle baby.” But let’s face it, MJ wasn’t really mad about Asa using IVF or not, she was really just pissed that Asa beat her to the punch when it came to having a kid. So MJ just found the weakest link in the Asa Chain (the fact that Asa isn’t forthcoming with all aspects of her life) and exploited it with the rest of the Shahs to get them on board with casting Asa aside. And it actually worked!

Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman compliment one another on their outfits for the Honest Tea

Every person serves a role when it comes to reality TV. With that said, there’s no question that LeeAnne Locken is the person who drives every major story line on Real Housewives of Dallas.

Then there’s someone like Stephanie Hollman, who is there to lighten the mood and be the one who’s “just like us”…. with a way higher budget. Even though Stephanie and LeeAnne cannot stand each other, their differences make this show worth watching.
