On Brandi Glanville’s podcast this week she spent time setting the record straight on a few rumors floating around, but she also devoted some time to helping Josh Taekman clear up some misconceptions about his marriage to Kristen.
Kristen Taekman, who is one of Brandi’s BFFs, is new this season on Real Housewives of New York. While we are loving Kristen, her husband Josh has been a little hard to take. Brandi wanted to help by explaining what a great guy Josh is and sharing that editing is making him look like an ass, but he really, really isn’t – he just has a dry sense of humor that’s not coming across well on TV!
Josh called in to Brandi’s podcast and shared that it’s been tough to watch to his scenes on the show each week. “It makes me cringe, it makes me sick to my stomach because Kristen and I have been together almost twelve years, we have a strong relationship. We’re far from perfect just like any relationship. I’m building a business which is incredibly stressful, but at the end of the day we are deeply in love and love our children and have a great working relationship. But we also have a lot of inside jokes and those do not translate at all.”
Catfish Season 3 finale Episode 10- Bianca and Brogan
I can’t believe that it’s already the season finale of Catfish! I’m sad that I joined you mid-season—hopefully I’ll be back!
We’ve returned to the land of ridiculously named twenty-somethings, aka the land of Catfish. Nev gets an email from Bianca- a girl who has been talking to another girl over the internet named Brogan. Bianca fell in love with Brogan because Bianca is really into body modification and Brogan’s pictures depicted her with a lot of tattoos. Bianca felt an instant connection with Brogan, but had never wanted to video chat with her because she thought it would be awkward. Then, all of a sudden, Brogan vanished into thin air. She deleted her Facebook and stopped answering her calls.
Brandi Glanville is fed up, y’all! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstar took to her podcast this week to hit back at some of the crazy rumors floating around and also gives a scathing explanation of why a certain media outlet loathes her and will never write a nice article about her. Hint: it involves drugs.
Brandi first addresses the rumors that Lisa Rinna is joining the cast of Beverly Hills and that Brandi supposedly super jealous over it. Brandi says that she can’t confirm or deny anything regarding casting and says she honestly doesn’t know if Lisa has signed on, but she hasn’t filmed with her. She says that she met Lisa at an event a few years ago and loved her and chatted with her all night. So, jealousy rumors are total B.S.
Brandi shares that a bulk of the negative stories about her originate from Radar and there’s a reason why…
While some of our favorite reality shows may deserve Emmy Awards for their acting and scripts, they DO get some recognition in other categories. The Primetime Emmys were announced this morning and several of our favorite shows made the cut!
Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, Flipping Out and Million Dollar Listing New York were among the many shows given an Emmy nod today. The Emmy winners will be announced on August 25th. Check out who made the cut!
Melissa Gorga and two of the newbie housewives, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, did a few press events together yesterday. The ladies stopped by Extra’s NYC studios at H&M in Times Square to do an interview and chat about the new season.
I think it’s just now hitting me that our only ‘originals’ this year will be Melissa (not technically an original), Teresa Giudice and returning former casts member Dina Manzo. I know not everyone loved Caroline Manzo or Jacqueline Laurita, but it’s going to be a totally different dynamic without them! And it sounds like we won’t be seeing as much of Kathy and Rich Wakile this time around, either.
I’m curious to see what the new cast members bring this season, but if it doesn’t work out, I’m voting for the return of the original cast – Danielle Staub and all! Are you with me?
(Reposting With List Updated Below) Are you a reality TV fan looking for that first step into the world of TV recap writing? If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at recapping and have been looking for a place to start, we might be the perfect fit for you! Reality Tea is looking for coverage on several reality shows that we just don’t have the time or staff to cover. While these will be unpaid recaps, it’s a great opportunity to add to your portfolio of literacy. I mean, resume.
My wish from last week’s episode of Little Women LA came true and we were given a whole lot of Traci Harrison this week. Sadly, it was not the Traci I was hoping for. We will get into this more as we dive into this week’s episode that includes wedding drama, straying boyfriends, and babies!
The show kicks off with Christy McGinty and Todd warehouse shopping. Christy cracks a joke that warehouse shopping and little people could result in “death by shopping.” I love that Christy doesn’t let her size hold her back. We always see her climbing to reach stuff at stores and man-handling items that are close to the same size as her. Good for her! Christy brings up setting a date for the wedding to Todd, but then mentions that she wouldn’t mind eloping. Todd considers the idea because this will be a second marriage for both of them until Christy brings up the fact that she hated her last wedding. Todd says that this would be an opportunity for her to do everything the way she wants if they were to have a big wedding and Christy is easily persuaded.
Last week Kai shared his side, including extensive photos and statements about the condition of the home, which he was in the process of purchasing from the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars. He also explained the issues with the bounced payments. Since then, Patterson went ahead and ordered a full inspection of the home and shared the results with us. We’re attaching the pdf below if you’d like to take a look at all 38 pages! The inspection is a thorough list of things in need of attention and repair and further investigation.
Despite a long list of issues, Kai still wants to buy the mansion. He chatted up Radar Online about trying to work things out with the Gorgas and moving forward with the purchase!
