There comes a point in the life of a blog where  a new server is needed because the old server is no longer able to handle all the incoming traffic.

Well, we are fortunate enough to say we recently reach that point at Reality Tea!!  We have recently upgraded to our own server and this will be able to handle all the traffic!  No more downtime or slow loading. We even reached a new high as we averaged over 50,000 visitors in one day, just last Monday!

Just want to say a HUGE and AMAZING thank you to all of you, our readers, our commenters.  Thank you all so so much for making this blog a success!  And a special thank you to the great folks at AM Tech Help for the excellent job they did in helping us move to the new server.

TWITTER - We are on twitter for anyone who would like to follow us and get the latest hottest reality TV news tweeted to you daily! Our twitter page is at http://twitter.com/Realitytea.

Who writes the blog – This is a question we get a lot.  The blog is written pretty much by me, “RT” (thanks for the nickname guys :) ) I might get occasional help on a sick day or some sort, but since January of this year, 98% of the stories are written by me.  About me?  Not much to tell, I am a female, in my early twenties, a recent college grad with a business degree, and a huge fan of reality shows.  I’ve always hated English and writing, so it was only fair that I became a “writer.”  I prefer to remain private/anonymous for now. Why? Well for one I don’t want to feel the wrath of Jill Zarin. I kid I kid, but enough about me.

I once again want to thank you all for the AMAZING support.  This is a somewhat tough job, but really the best job in the world.  I truly encourage you all to go after your dreams and goals, you never know what can amount out of it.  I’ve had this blog idea for years but never implemented it until just a year ago.  In the words of Teresa, I LOVE LOVE LOVE you all. I truly do! Thanks for all the kinds words, criticism, suggestions etc

Over the next few weeks and months, we will be implementing new things and ideas, such as making the site mobile friendly and hopefully implementing a new improved design by the end of the summer.

Please always feel free to contact us at realitytea@yahoo.com with your ideas, story tips, suggestions, questions etc. Thanks again and I look forward to bringing you many many more years of the hottest reality TV news! XOXO

Part one of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion brought us drama, denials, and memory relapses. This is a rather long recap as it involves events from the entire season, so let’s get right to it.

First we see the ladies seated on opposite sides, according to the “teams” they started and ended with this season. Ramona, Bethenny, and Alex are on one couch, with Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn on the other. We start off the show with Alex McCord, who’s tape footage is mostly about her feud with Jill. Asked about being a “different” Alex this season, Alex tells us she’s not really different, but instead chose to “let it out.” Alex’s only regret this season? Not calling the Countess out on her hypocrisy. This is in reference to LuAnn accusing Alex of choosing sides, when she had in fact become Jill’s lapdog. LuAnn lies through her teeth and claims she never chose sides or teams. Must say self awareness is not a strong point for these women.

This brings us to Jill vs Alex, and Jill, who appears to be channeling an 80s porn star with her overly teased hair, immediately goes into victim mode and once again says she is puzzled by Alex’s behavior this season. Jill calls Alex a coward, perhaps rightfully so, for using Bethenny’s message to get out her aggression against her. Alex tries to explain herself and crazy Kelly blurts out “cross your legs.”  We see Jill shoot Kelly an odd look, you know, the type of look a mother gives a child who is acting crazy in public. Alex continues and explains she has tried “over and over” to work things out with Jill. Jill’s defense is she and Alex are not friends, and as we all know, anyone who is not Team Jill gets the wrath of Jill.

Alex also explains what I’ve been blogging along all season, which is that her resentment of Jill comes from three years worth of build up. Anyone who has watched the first and second seasons of the show can attest to this. Alex then goes on to give the best quote ever, summing up Jill with these 60 words -

” Every time you feel threatened whether it is by me, or by anyone else, anytime we have something or get something that you want, or you feel wronged by us, you fight back and you fight back dirty. You go to the gossip columns, you plant stories, you back stab, you try to get people not to film with other people.”

We hear Bethenny agree with Alex when she mentioned Jill asking people not to film with others, but oh, we get to hear more of this later!

Jill then tells the biggest lie of all saying she doesn’t “plant anything about anyone.” In these past few months alone, there have been at least three negative stories in the press regarding her castmates that appear to have been planted by Jill. We see Jill try to project deflect by then accusing Alex of trying to plant a story about her and a charity to the press. Jill claims to have “proof.” Let’s all hope she leaks this “proof” to the media soon because I’m simply not buying it, not one bit at all. I highly highly doubt Alex, who has a job and two young kids to take care of, is spending her free time trying to plant negative stories in the press about Jill. That’s all Jill’s MO.

Next up is Ramona, and we get to see the highlights of the ramonacoaster. Ramona gets an interesting viewer question when a viewer wants to know if she is proud of the way she acted on the yacht, you know when she drunkenly kissed a stranger on the lips. Ramona attempts to defend herself saying she told her husband Mario what had happened, and that it was just an innocent kiss. Kelly butts in and actually makes a valid point, when she says she is surprised Mario was “fine” with Ramona kissing another man, to which LuAnn makes a very catty interesting comment – “Why do you think they’ve been married for so long?”

I find LuAnn’s comment interesting because I’ve always suspected Ramona and Mario might have some sort of agreement or open marriage. No proof of this at all and there’s a great chance I’m wrong. I am however just going by my instincts, based on their behaviors going back to season one of the show. If you recall, Ramona also kissed one of her female friends, who happened to be a former Playmate, on the lips back in season one. Anyhoo, Ramona shares that she doesn’t consider a kiss an indiscretion, so we move on.

Teresa Giudice Home

Financial woes continue for Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice.

The latest is now that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who famously declared on the show’s 1st season that living in a previously-owned home was “gross,”  has listed her famous New Jersey home for sale. The asking price? A cool $3,999,000.

Oddly enough, Teresa and hubby Joe declared the home value to be $1.7 million in their October 2009 bankruptcy filing. Guess the home value must have doubled since last year.

There are also conflicting reports on the status of the home, which they can be seen living in on the Bravo reality show. A previous report by the NYPost stated the bank had started foreclosure proceedings on the extensive marble home. Perhaps trying to sell the home for a $2.3 million profit is their last ditch attempt to save it and make some quick change.

And a new report by the NYPost today claims Teresa is capitalizing off her new bankruptcy fame. According to the Post, Teresa will be appearing in next week’s InTouch magazine to talk about her body and workout routine. Teresa is said to be getting paid less than $10,000 for the story. The post however claims the article will not focus on her financial woes.

UPDATE - Teresa is now claiming via her twitter page, that her home is not up for sale.  She tweeted, “HUGE NEWS CORRECTION-I’m telling you guys first and directly…MY HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE!!! Sorry if you were dreaming of moving in w/ me. xx”

Perhaps more of that “family assistance” has come in for she and Joe, as houses just don’t magically appear on real estates websites for sale.

Also continuing to make headlines is Danielle Staub, who’s sex tape is set to be released next Monday.

Danielle, who reveals her past as a stripper and escort in her memoir – The Naked Truth, is now claiming she was blackmailed for months over her sex tape.

In a new interview with HollywoodLife, the mother of two opens up about the sex tape. “I had a sexual relationship that was supposed to remain private,” claims Danielle, who has done nothing to try to stop the release of the tape. “I was approached and I’ve been being blackmailed for quite some time and there’s NOTHING I could do to shut it down.”

Right Danielle. She also denies claims that she leaked her own sex tape. “I would never release my own sex tape. I would never do such a thing,” she says adamantly. “It’s not true that I made the film to be released to the public,” she says. “I’m holding the camera in my hand and taking pictures of myself so I don’t know why people think the footage is high quality.”

So says Danielle who filmed the sex tape months after the airing of the first season of the Real Housewives of NJ. As we have reported, all signs point to Danielle being behind the so called “leak “and “theft” of the sex tape.

Roxy-OlinOlivia Palermo

We are now in the third season of The City, and the question every seems to want an answer to is does Olivia Palermo act off camera as she does on the show?

Olivia, who has been on the show since its first season, is portrayed as being arrogant and overly domineering on the MTV hit show.

In a new interview with Zap2it, Olivia’s castmate Roxy Olin reveals that she might be even worse off camera.  “Olivia is like that or even worse,” Roxy tells Zap2it. “I don’t know where the entitlement came from. I was raised with no matter what job you have, you treat everyone equal. “

Roxy adds, “My mom (Patricia Wettig of “Brothers & Sisters”) is from Nowheresville and earned every penny, so every penny counts. Olivia acts so privileged. Have you even earned it? I can’t comprehend it, even if you are so rich or so out there.”

“It’s so cutthroat in the fashion world, why take yourself that seriously?” Roxy wonders. “What do you gain from it? It must be really lonely for Olivia. Don’t you want to be involved and have someone to talk to? I guess she makes good TV. Maybe she will look at herself and say, ‘I look like an idiot’.”

Oddly enough, Olivia, who failed to get an important interview with Marc Jacobs on the last episode, faces the threat of being fired on the next episode of The City.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON OLIVIA, SHOULD SHE BE FIRED?

Holly Madison‘s new reality show, Holly’s World, is set to premiere June 13 on E!.

The reality show of the former playmate and Girls Next Door star will chronicle her life as she tries to make it as a Las Vegas entertainer, headlining in her own burlesque show, Peepshow.

Holly, 30, says the show will follow she and her closest friends as they make their way through Vegas. Starring alongside Holly on the series are her pals Angel Porrino, Josh Strickland and Laura Croft.

The eight episode series will also include guest appearances by Holly’s former co-star Bridget Marquardt, with whom Madison goes on a road trip with, and Kendra Wilkinson, whom she consults for pointers when asked to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game.

Holly’s World premieres this Sunday right after the Season 2 premiere of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami at 10 p.m. ET.

Good news for Real Housewives of New York City fans as tonight is the long awaited part 1 of the reunion show. Even better news? Andy Cohen announced today that the two-part reunion show will now be a three-part show! “We’re leaving very little of the reunion on the edit room floor,” said Andy.

So part 1 will air today, part 2 will air Monday night, and the final part will air next Thursday. Another change to Bravo’s schedule is the move of the hit show Watch What Happens to Monday night, starting this coming Monday with guests Ramona Singer and Dina Manzo. This is perhaps a hint that Dina is the New Jersey housewife leaving the show.

Back to the reunion news, the ladies will of course hash things out tonight and a preview clip of Alex vs. Jill is below.

In other NYC news, it seems Jill Zarin continues to be in panic mode as she realizes with only one week left of the NYC Housewives, she is still highly hated disliked by the show fans. First Jill tried to repair her image by attempting to befriend Bethenny again, that failed, then she tried attacking Alex, that failed as well, and as we reported last week, she tried playing the victim card by revealing to her fans via facebook/twitter that she was being threatened by two families, and of course that failed as well. And by family, does Jill mean Nana and the baby are threatening her too? Well let’s all hope Jill will clear this up for wondering fans.

The latest act by Jill, who was revealed as having hired 4 media consultants in last week’s UsWeekly issue, is to try to save defend the non too sane Kelly Bensimon, while also playing the victim role once more.

In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Jill, who continues to do more damage everytime she opens her mouth, claims Kelly was indeed picked on by the four other housewives on the infamous St. John trip. And it doesn’t end there, as Jill also says she can relate to Kelly because she, just like Kelly, was also picked on by the four women (Bethenny, Ramona, Alex and Sonja).

Excerpts from Jill’s interview below -

What’s your take on what happened there with Kelly?
I wasn’t there but I spoke to Kelly on the phone and she was definitely having a hard time. She felt that the girls were fighting with her and picking on her. She’s not a fighter. She can’t express herself in that negative way; she just can’t defend herself.

Do you really think they were bullying her?
You know, I wasn’t there but I can tell you that what I saw on TV looks like four against one. It’s bad. It was bad because they did it to me when I got there. As a firsthand witness, when I walked in and I felt that energy of hate on me, and that only lasted about 10 minutes, if Kelly was experiencing that for four days, systematic bullying, no matter what you call it, is not okay.

So according to Jill’s distorted view, it was four against one and Kelly, who was shown being antagonistic to all the women, was the victim. Also in last week’s issue of UsWeekly was a rather odd picture of Jill holding hands with Kelly while walking the NYC streets. The mag reported the picture was taken just days after the filming of the reunion show.

Must say it’s time for Jill to fire her 4 media consultants if their big plan for her redemption is advising her to align herself with Kelly, whom is considered pretty much insane by most fans of the show. What’s even worse than Jill’s odd attempt to defend Kelly is the fact that it’s likely not genuine and likely just another bad ploy to get the public to like her once again.

And since we’re on the topic of Kelly Bensimon, who continues to remain out of touch with reality, the latest comes in a new interview during which she brags about her highly ridiculed anti-bullying PSA video. “My bullying video has gotten over 80,000 hits [Note: 69,399, but close enough],” she says. “I’ve realized I have a voice I didn’t know I had. Mock it or love it, I’m making an impact.”

Priceless that the interviewer points out her video had gotten 10,000 less hits than what she claimed. Kelly also sees the upside in appearing like a lunatic on national television. She proudly proclaims that Episode 11—her meltdown episode—is the most downloaded iTunes show “and that’s awesome.”

Moving right along. Below is a preview clip of what is to come tonight as Alex and Jill can be seen getting into it.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CLIP AND PART 1 OF THE REUNION SHOW?

Bethenny's Getting Married?Peter Sussman

Tonight marks the highly promoted reality show of Bethenny Frankel titled Bethenny’s Getting Married?

39-year-old Bethenny, who is arguably the most popular housewife is the Bravo Housewives history, is also the first Bravo housewife to get her own spin-off.

So what can be expect from Bethenny’s new show? Well according to a press release, the show will feature the Skinny Girl powerhouse as she prepares for two of life’s biggest milestones: a wedding and a baby… simultaneously! Joining Bethenny on her show is her new hubby Jason Hoppy, her assitant Julie Plake, and her dog Cookie. Her Real Housewives of NYC co-stars Alex McCord and Ramona Singer will also be making appearances on the show in future episodes.

But will Jill Zarin be appearing on Bethenny’s show as well? “Jill isn’t in my life,” explains Bethenny. “I really wish her the best of everything. I have released any angst or feelings about that situation. Marriage and motherhood put everything into perspective.”

The show premieres tonight at10 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo!

In other Bethenny news, she gave a new interview to Life&Style magazine this week and openly discussed her first marriage to Peter Sussman (pictured above). Who knew she had a first marriage under her belt?

According to Bethenny, she married Peter, whom she describes as her former best friend, back in 1996. “We were best friends for five years, and he always wanted to be more,” she tells the mag.

Bethenny says she eventually gave in to Peter’s advances and dated him for two years before tying the knot with him in front of more than 150 friends and family members at the posh Four Seasons in Los Angeles. Though she felt secure in the marriage, Bethenny admits there was a lack of passion in their relationship.

She adds, “I loved him because of how much he loved me. I got married too young. I didn’t wait for the great love of my life.” Bethenny says she is now content with her new happy ending. “Until you find it, you’re not really sure it’s even possible,” she says. “You don’t know how the story can end.”

All very interesting. While Bethenny is quite funny and entertaining on the Real Housewives of New York City, the question now seems to be can she carry a show on her own? You know without the mean-girl behavior of Jill, the insanity of Kelly, the mood swings of Ramona, or the delusions of grandeur of Countess LuAnn? Guess we’ll be finding out tonight.

TELL US – WILL YOU BE TUNING INTO BETHENNY’S GETTING MARRIED?

Porn star Reality star Danielle Staub is finally breaking her silence on her soon to be released sex tape.

The 47-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star was caught running errands yesterday and was briefly interviewed by TMZ. In the impromptu interview, Danielle claims the tape was stolen but admits she won’t be fighting it’s release. Danielle also believes her sex tape will outsell that of E!’s Kendra Wilkinson, because her tape has something Kendra’s tape doesn’t……herself!

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PHOTOS FROM DANIELLE’S SEX TAPE!

The partial transcript of the video interview is below -

TMZ – So this rumor about this sex tape?

Danielle – “Well, it’s not so much a rumor anymore. There is one, its being released.

TMZ - Did someone steal it from you?

Danielle – “Um from what I was told, the information I was told was yes it was stolen.”

TMZ – Do you think it will make more money than Kendra’s tape?

Danielle – “You know that’s a good question because I haven’t seen hers. I haven’t seen mine either but I do know I was in it, so if it’s going to do anything, I would hope mine would do better, (laughs) I don’t know how to answer that.”

TMZ – Are you going to fight its release?

Danielle – “Um I did try to in the beginning but I just decided you know what if you can’t beat them, join them, so what am I left to do? It wasn’t something that I would have chose to have released but it’s out there and there’s nothing I can do about it.”

Interesting she has all these “ums” in front of her lies answers. When asked about the unidentified man in the sex tape with her, Danielle shares that communication with him is fine, and to the best of her knowledge, he had nothing to do with it. She however wouldn’t reveal the guy’s identity.

She was also asked about her castmate’s thoughts on the tape, Danielle replied, “Oh I don’t care what they say ever about me.”

Also released today is a 38 second video preview of the sex tape on the site DanielleStaubRaw.com. While the preview clip contains no nudity, it might not be safe for work. For a $29.95 monthly subscription, you will however be able to view the tape in its entirety when its released Monday, June 14th.

In the preview clip, which looks more like a porno movie than a leaked sex tape, Danielle can be seen mostly talking and smiling into the camera. And according to our poll from yesterday, an astonishing 98% of you believe Danielle leaked out this sex tape. Well, can’t say we disagree with you all.
