Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was actually a sweet storyline. Jaime Laurita got married and it was really, really beautiful. Although everyone mostly got along, there was some trouble over a tabloid article Teresa Giudicedid. Melissa Gorga also gave us a demo of her new song, which, aaaaaaahhhh… I wish I could un-hear. Ok, I admit – it was a fun dance song…
Also, Caroline Manzo has been referring to herself in third person a lot, which has me worried. Nonetheless, I think I’m going to refer to Caroline Manzo as Caroline Manzo at all times. Caroline Manzo probably doesn’t like when people do that to Caroline Manzo.
Things begin with Jacqueline Laurita and Chris discovering an oh so conveniently placed copy of In Touch Weekly which also oh so conveniently has a photo of Teresa, Gabriella (I think) and a puppy on the cover. I wonder if room service is doling these mags out – you know, leaving it in front of the door like they do USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. Frankly, it’s not a bad idea – I love tabloids.
A small part of me wonders if all the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey is a publicity stunt. I just cannot believe family members and friends can be so vitriolic towards each other. After some serious drama during the taping of The View last week, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continued their escalating drama on Twitter AND in their personal blogs.
On her Fabulicous website, Teresa told her side of the story about why she demanded a solo taping on The View. Teresa explains that she wasn’t aware of what Melissa and cousin Kathy Wakile said during their segment until watching it from her Miami hotel room yesterday.
“It’s hard to get your thoughts straight when you’re being interviewed for TV — especially when you’re trying to talk to 5 women at once like on The View and there are no ‘retakes.’
I only heard today that Melissa called me a liar or a fibber or whatever, when the press started calling me for my response. I’ve been telling the same story–the truth–since it happened. Suddenly Melissa has a new answer for it, fresh from her new PR people: it’ a lie and it’s my ‘crutch.’ Are you kidding me?”
So, Bethenny Frankel has quit her day job in eager anticipation of getting a new one. Yep, the possibly former star of Bethenny Ever After is now the hostess with the mostess potty talk of “bethenny,” a limited release daytime talk show.
“bethenny” is airing on Fox in six select cities starting this Monday. Those lucky cities are Phoenix, LA, NYC, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Minneapolis. Oh, you lucky people who live there!
Anyway, because she’s Bethenny and she’s built her reputation on courting the scandalous and using it to her advantage, she teased everyone by not addressing the many divorce rumors circulating about her and hubby Jason Hoppy. Instead Bethenny evoked us to wait and watch well, bethenny, to clear everything up.
Good lord – must the Kardashians publicize everything they do? I’m surprised Kim Kardashian doesn’t tweet when she’s inserting a tampon. I can just hear it now: “Headed to the bathroom to use a lady stick, dolls! #ThatTimeOfTheMonth #PeriodFiles” Ugh.
Anyway, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently gave her boyfriend of like 3 months a rare $750,000 Lamborghini for his 35th birthday! Lucky man that Kanye West – well except for the dating Kim part.
TMZ is reporting that Kim bought a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 – unfortunately Kanye can’t drive the new digs around because he’s still in Ireland on the Watch the Throne tour. Kim reportedly took a video of the car to Kanye in Ireland to show him exactly what he’s missing – and she showed up in person to livestream the vid! Hopefully he won’t cancel any tour dates to rush home and drive it.
And hopefully Kim didn’t trade in the $325,000 Ferrari she reportedly got for a wedding present to purchase the new fancy wheels. We heard what happened with those Rolex watches, Kimmie!

We here at Reality Tea are often just shocked to the gills by the antics of reality stars. From the products they shamelessly hawk to the ridiculous relationships to the epic fights to the hilarious outfits – the fun never stops! With all the insanity reverberating from every corner of every network, low-budget to high, we’ve often wondered… which crazy would you rather?
In order to spread the fun, we’ve decided to start a weekly game called Reality Tea: Would You Rather? And for today’s question – in honor of trips to hell and back – we wanna know:
Would You Rather…
A) Be stuck on a bus with NeNe Leakes. Hold onto your eyeballs. Bloop, bloop!
~ OR ~
B) Be stuck on a boat with Bethenny Frankel. It’s therapy time and there’s no “functioning” captain GPS.
Give your answer below and don’t forget to spread the fun!
Oh, Kardashians… seriously? Anyway, the first family of K has been busy, busy, busy self-promoting again! In the latest, the extremely pregnant Kourtney Kardashian – who is due any day now – took some time away from nesting and baby cooking to talk about why she still won’t marry her longtime boyfriend and two-time baby daddy Scott Disick.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kourtney spilled her guts, giving yet another excuse for why she won’t walk down the aisle. Personally I think she’s holding out until the price is right!
“First of all, I have realized that I have major commitment problems during this pregnancy,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star confessed. “I’m really claustrophobic, and all my issues — and I have a lot of them — they all stem from this thing. I can’t commit to anything . . but I love Scott, and he is my partner.”
Well, more bad news for Evelyn Lozada! Weeks after her spinoff Ev & Ocho started filming, it seems her hubby’s reality TV career has interfered with his professional one and he’s now out of a job! After years of juggling the two, Chad Ochocinco has apparently been dropped by the famous New England Patriots and is now a free agent!
TMZ reports that the team spent all day yesterday trying to trade Chad, before finally cutting him loose. Ouch! Confirming his firing on Twitter – where else – Chad thanked the fans. ”Thoroughly enjoyed the oppurtunity to play for the ‘Patriot’ organization … fans were f****** wicked awesome, I wish all of you the best.”

Real Housewives of New York had a looooong hiatus while it got all its new ducks in a row. Sadly, either people forgot about them and didn’t bother going back or everyone is still sick of the lingering taint of acidic drama. Regardless of why less and less people tuned in, the ratings for the season five premiere were less than stellar. Like so less than stellar Kim Zolciak‘s wig reveal slammed RHONY!
According to The Huffington Post, the season premiere only drew 1.7 million viewers in it’s 9pm slot. Which is unprecedentedly low for a Housewives season premiere. Just for some perspective – Real Housewives of Orange County (previously the lowest rated in the franchise) got over 2 million viewers for it’s season premiere.
Allegedly Bravo isn’t too upset by the ratings. “Bravo didn’t expect the numbers to be huge,” a network insider revealed. “Monday is a new night for the show and it’s the most competitive night of the week.”
