Tonight the Real Housewives Of New Jersey season 6 reunion kicks off. Teresa Giudice is wearing her finest solid gold Christmas pageant couture to harken back to happier times of reunions when she was just feuding with friends and family instead of heading off to prison! At least Teresa is going out with a bang in designer Christmas Pageant couture, that is!
Tonight Dina Manzo will open up about her family drama and Teresa will storm off set in a huff. Which is all fun and everything, but I just want to know who is wearing what and if it came from Posche.
Yesterday Reality Tea had the opportunity to chat with Victoria Gotti about her feelings about reality TV then and now, her decision to return to reality TV in Growing Up Gotti: 10 Years Later, and what’s changed in her life after reality TV. Victoria also shared an update on her sons’ lives.
Victoria was candid, unapologetic, a dedicated mother, and exactly what you see on TV – which was a refreshing. She was adamant that the ‘blame the editors’ adage so many reality stars cling to is ridiculous, but she also admitted that reality TV has changed over the years. I take it her recent experience on Real Housewives Of New Jersey led her to that conclusion.
Victoria is excited to show viewers how her family has grown since we saw them on Growing Up Gotti, and she maintains that her experiences on that show, and on other reality shows, have been a positive ones, which is why she decided to open her life up the cameras again for an update.
Quoting Al Pacino from The Godfather III, Victoria joked, “‘Just when I think I’m out, they call me back in.’ No pun intended. But I think once you do it, that’s it!” Victoria says she has “no regrets” about participating in the original incarnation of Growing Up Gotti – and neither do her sons. “I loved it! When I was asked to come back, do this, I didn’t hesitate.”
Bethenny is back to hawking her Skinnygirl wares as if this was 2010 and the last four years of spinoffs, big business breaks, marriages, pending divorces, babies, failed talk shows and failed Skinnygirl products never happened. Bethenny is currently promoting a Skinnygirl cocktail book because um… you need that if you’re fancier than buying her bottled mixed drinks.
This week Bethenny appeared on The View where she seemed nervous, tongue-tied, and a bit jittery over being confronted about her major lifestyle change (i.e. how the mighty has fallen). She also promoted her new book Skinnygirl Cocktails. “It’s a great little guide,” she quipped. “All the drinks are under 150 calories.”
Anna Cardwell is done defending her mother Mama June! A betrayed Anna confirms June is with Mark McDaniel, and that June still does not believe Anna that Mark molested her when she was just 8-years-old. As a result Anna is severing her contact with her mother but wants to do what she can to protect her younger sisters.
The horrifying saga of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June dating the man who molested her daughter Anna becomes increasingly disturbing. After initially believing her mother would never have anything to do with the man who spent 10 years in prison for molesting her, Anna reveals she confronted her mother about the dangers of Mark being around her younger sisters, particularly Alana Thompson who is 9-years-old. Anna was 8 when Mark molested her.
Anna told June, “‘You know, he’s a child molester, Mama. He did this to me. Why would you let him come around the girls knowing what he did? And reportedly done it to another girl? And Mama was like, ‘Oh, he never done it to another girl.'” Anna confronted June with her concerns about him being near hear younger sisters Jessica, Lauren, and Alana. Lauren “Pumpkin” had witnessed Mark’s abuse against Anna when she was only 3-years-old.
Mama June doesn’t care what supposed evidence you might have – she continues to deny dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel and Sugar Bear is right by her side! Man – this story just gets more and more messed up!
Yesterday Mama June gave an impromptu and bizarre interview about what’s happening in her life since the story broke of her relationship with Mark and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled by TLC as a result of the scandal. Standing outside her Georgia home, June laughed and acted flippantly for the cameras and saying nothing has changed with her family! “The whole truth will come out on my side,” she maintains.
“We are doing it behind closed doors, that’s how I am. I’m very quiet. I love my family…” June remarked. “We’re just hanging out as a family and handling it privately.”
There was a ton of speculation about where the Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars had flown off to for their cast trip. We knew it was somewhere tropical and assumed they were in Bali, but it turns out they are on vacation in the Philippines!
We haven’t heard of any drama happening – yet… and judging by the photos it really seems that everyone is bonding and getting along. I imagine this will cause major friction between everyone else and NeNe!
The ladies have been sharing photos of their now not so secret location! You can check them out below!
Finally we have some answers about what is up with Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Like where the hell are the first ladies of peaches. I had assumed Phaedra Parks trapped them in some Southern Belle Training Camp, but alas the beans have been spilled on where they are and why NeNe Leakesskipped the trip!
Rumors were swirling that amid some cryptic tweets about sinking ships, NeNe had quit RHOA mid-season and was not invited on the last-minute cast trip to celebrate Phaedra’s birthday. I assumed NeNe was skipping to prepare for her role in Broadway’s Cinderella, but it was revealed that health reasons caused NeNe to skip the trip. Specifically blood clots that warn against long flights.
Brandi met the unnamed post-adolescent hottie on the cast trip to Amsterdam and gushed about how rich and mannerly he was. However that proved to be short-lived! “No more 23 yr old fun while it lasted but onto the next :),” she tweeted.
