2012 is rapidly, rapidly coming to an end and before the Mayan Apocalypse claims us all make sure to catch up on all your 2012 reality TV marathons. Who doesn't need a 50th viewing of the infamous "Who gon' check me, boo?" argument.
In honor of the year coming to a close let's celebrate some of the best, craziest, and most entertaining reality TV star products to hit the market this year.
We all know there's only one reason to appear on these shows right? Product hawking!
Below is Reality Tea's list of the best products of 2012:
Aaaahhh… same old saga, eh? What product does Bethenny Frankel have hitting the market? Kidding, kidding! Anyway, the Bethenny Ever After star may not be so happily ever after any more.
Bethenny has been tweeting up a storm about holiday activities with daughter Bryn and her upcoming talk show, as well as handing out fitness, nutrition, and holiday tips. What is Bethenny NOT mentioning? Husband Jason Hoppy! Where is that guy?
Well, perhaps there's a reason… Bethenny's marriage has been plagued by break-up rumors since the beginning and Bethenny's reality show showed the couple fighting and growing exceedingly distant from each other.
"Things have gotten even more strained in recent months," a friend tells Us Weekly. "They're fighting a lot." In fact the couple is barely spending any time together at all! Bethenny spent Thanksgiving on a girls' weekend and Jason reportedly missed the Skinnygirl Christmas party for a golf weekend.
Hell hath no fury like a cheap extension loving woman with clothes to hawk! ApparentlyKim D (and the "D" stands for dastardly) is signing into the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey with a serious ax to grind and one Melissa Gorga is quaking in her boots. Maybe she can write a song about it…
Apparently Kim does run with the big boys – and those big boys go by the name of Bravo! Kim has been in "top-secret" negotiations with Bravo a source tells The National Enquirer and is developing a scheme to take Melissa down and vindicate Teresa Giudice. And Kim frankly doesn't give a damn if the other women of the cast like her or not! Did I ever tell you guys I secretly love the Kims something awful?
“Bravo knows Kim D would bring some serious drama to the show, and that’s going to mean huge ratings," a source shares. And the network is reportedly over the two-seasons long family hate fest the show turned into and they are looking for some new ways to cause controversy, but they're keeping ties with Kim veeeeery secret!
Hey remember when Kenya Moore was telling everyone she was going to get engaged to Walter Jackson and then Walter told the media they weren't even really dating because she asked to be her pretend boyfriend just for a Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline? Yeah, well that happened – at least according to Walter!
Days after Walter spilled the secret that he was a boyfriend-for-hire ( a plot straight out of a corny Lifetime movie) and that Bravo producers had no idea they were faking things for the camera, Kenya is insisting that's not true to save her butt!
"The truth is and has always been that I want to be in a loving, honest, long-term relationship with someone who genuinely loves me for me — Walter's recent statements are completely false," Kenya told TooFab.
Following last season's seriously acrimonious Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion it seemed there was no hope of reconcilliation, but recently Teresa reached out on Twitter to congratulate Kathy on her new QVC deal to hawk cannolis.
Kathy graciously replied: "Thank you ! @Teresa_Giudice Your good wishes truly mean so much to me !! Xo" Awww… sweeter than desserts. Also, Kathy looks great in the above photo.

TELL US – ARE THEY SINCERE AND TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF OR IS THIS JUST ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT FROM THE LADIES OF RHONJ?
Mob Wives returns this January and with it will come two new ladies of the underworld. The first name to be released is Love Majewski.
Love is a reality TV veteran and appeared in the I.D. channel's “I Married a Mobster’. According to an interview with the Daily Mail from a few years ago, Love has quite the mafia history. She married Chris Paciello a member of the Bonanno/Cosa Nostra crime family. Her relationship to Chris and his involvement in The Untouchables car-theft operation served as the inspiration and plot of the movie Gone In 60 Seconds.
"Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of speculation and rumor as to the status of my relationship with Taylor Armstrong," he begins. "I can confirm that Taylor Armstrong and I are in a romantic relationship, and we are both very happy."

So what was going on last night, Bravo? A word of advice: If you can't air the storyline, then, you know don't air the story. But I suppose that would mean forgoing some major drama and they can't have that, can they?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has made a case for going where no show goes before into the gory, depraved, salacious, and libelous department. And last night was no exception.
Before we get to the good stuff let's discuss Splits Richards trying to show off that she's the new rich biatch in town. She's giving her 16-year-old, the one who couldn't parallel part last week, a brand new Mercedes coupe. That's the perfect first car to total, amirite! It's apparently because Mauricio is now raking in the dough big time with his new real estate agency.
Personally, I'm really over the daughter driving story. I mean who is she – a Kardashian? Furthermore, those shorts are too short for a 16-year-old. I guess she's also taking fashion advice from Aunt Paris.
