Let’s talk about hypocrites… we see a lot of those on reality TV. Something we also see a lot of is impending nervous breakdowns – and it seems to me we’re witnessing a scary combination of the two in Caroline Manzo. Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was supposed to be about gay rights with the celebration of Jaime Laurita‘s wedding and Rosie Pierri accepting her own sexuality – sadly it was eclipsed by Caroline vs. Teresa Giudice with Caroline serving up more pettiness and more spite. This show was also about sibling relationships – and so many of these reality sibs actually have some pretty abysmal ones.
Things begin with Teresa and Gia having a chat about Teresa’s never peaceable relationship with Joe Gorga. Teresa is poking at Gia to open up with her while Gia is poking at an eggo waffle – I don’t remember that recipe being in any of T’s cookbooks! I kid, I kid.
Teresa wants to know if Gia thinks she is working hard enough on her relationship with Non-Juicy Joe and if she should do anything differently. Teresa taking advice from a ten-year-old says everything. LOL. In all actuality I thought it was a very sweet and age-appropriate conversation. I appreciated that Teresa wanted Gia to know they are working on things, but I also think Gia is exposed to a leetle too much family drama.
Nobody goes on Bachelor Pad to fall in love and meet their soul mate. Nope, they show up to win money. Well sometimes things don’t go as planned, because this Saturday Bachelor Pad alums Holly Durst and Blake Julian tied the knot!
The couple said “I do” in front of 115 guests at the The Cliffs country club in South Carolina. Holly wore an Alfred Angelo gown, which according to Us Weekly featured: “A dramatic sweetheart neckline, draped bodice (which she customized with a sash), tufted skirt and a sweep train.”
“I couldn’t be happier with my Alfred Angelo wedding dress! It was really hard to choose because there were so many beautiful choices, but I knew I found my dream dress the moment I put it on!,” Holly gushed.
After last week’s brief hiatus from Real Housewives of New Jersey, I have to admit I kinda missed them. Well the drama starters of Jersey are back again and with them comes chaos, catastrophes, and craziness galore. Oh, Jersey – don’t you ever change. Ok, well maybe change a little bit… I could do with less spray tan, less marble, and less sister-in-law vs. sister-in-law drama. But you can’t win ‘em all!
To welcome back Bravo’s finest besequined, be-spray tanned, be-ostentatious ladies, Reality Tea’s source EXCLUSIVELY reveals how the possibility that Joe Giudice may end up in prison is affecting his family. “Joe’s parents are very upset over the possibility of Joe going to jail. Other family members think he deserves this and feel sorry for the kids.”

Many have wondered – especially me – just how much money do the ladies of Real Housewives get to act like such loons on national television. Oh, whoops – I meant: How much do they make to act like such classy examples of wealthy American women. Freudian slip!
Anyway, RadarOnline seems to have the answers I’ve been looking for. According to the sometimes right usually not site, Vicki Gunvalson – the OG of all Housewives everywhere – earns a whopping $450,000 per season to obsess about working and have various meltdowns.
I will say, like her or not, Vicki has more or less remained her same wacky self throughout the years and I don’t think she’s acting for the cameras… unlike some of the other grossly overpaid high earning reality stars! Like NeNe Leakes, for instance! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is reportedly the highest paid of all the women in the franchises – commanding an insane $750,000 per season.
The surprising thing about the now defunct impending nuptials is the reason WHY Gary and Jenelle split. No it wasn’t her alleged drug use, or her twitter antics, or the accusations of domestic violence, or the scandalous photos of her surging around the web, or the legal drama… it was over an alleged stolen necklace.
Taking to twitter – where else – the Teen Mom 2 star announced the pair had called it quits when Gary reportedly stole her $300 Tiffany necklace and took it to base with him. Jenelle accuses him of breaking into her house to get the necklace and posted a photo of the broken door jam. The photo is below.
So, let’s talk about Keeping Up With Kardashians… Is anybody watching that? I must confess I tuned in and saw, well, all the episodes of this season. Not because I was forced, but because I was curious. Albeit morbidly so. Which is sort of like eating an entire Chipotle burrito just to see if I can do it. Never a good idea, but it never stops me.
First of all, the editing in this show is so bad and non-sequential, but they don’t seem to care and they don’t bother trying to hide it. They also bilk a storyline for all it’s worth; going overboard to berate you with a point. And most annoyingly, each show has a little moralistic message attached to the end like some sort of totally trashy and lowbrow Aesop’s Fables with spray tans, false eyelashes, and a lot of too tight pants.
Yeah, so about those Kardashians. Is Kris Jennerpsychotic? Bruce Jenner seems to think so! Their marital drama – which may be fabricated, but is likely not – is kinda dominating this season so far. In fact Bruce is getting some major airtime for once. He’s working hard for his share of that $40M.

Oh, Tamra Barney… you know sometimes it’s best to keep your comments to yourself! After Tuesday night’s Costa Mexico Aventurevention with Alexis Bellino, Tamra is speaking out defending her behavior and she insists she is not a bully! She’s just a professionally trained reality television interventionalist working to remedy the fake and phony!
“A bully is someone that intentionally goes after another person,” Tamra shares with RumorFix. “I have never gone after Alexis, she came to me and asked me how I felt. I am a very honest person and don’t tend to sugarcoat my thoughts.” I think Tamra’s version of honesty is more commonly known as diarrhea of the mouth.
And Tamra claims her treatment of Alexis is all in fun… unless you’re, you know, actually Alexis. “Sure, I poke fun of her in my interviews in regards to some of the stuff she says and does (it’s my job and we all do it to each other). Geez, even Kathy Griffin has written her into her act! I honestly feel sorry for Alexis and I hope she gets help.”
Tamra claims the intervention on this weeks episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was a cast-wide affair and everyone deemed it necessary. Why, I’m still not sure. “When the whole cast is planning a intervention to try and get through to this girl it’s gotta make you wonder. Is everyone else wrong and she is right? NO!,” Tamra says.
