Jill Zarin clearly has too much time on her hands – and clearly she has not taken former BFF Bethenny Frankel‘s advice to “Get a hobby!” (Which in case you didn’t know is one of my top reality TV insults of all time!) The former Real Housewives of New York star has repeatedly claimed she is relieved she was fired out of one corner of her mouth, while out of the other corner she advocates her fans let Bravo know they made a mistake in firing her. Clearly she has trouble letting go. So much trouble that she reportedly crashedLuAnn de Lesseps‘ premiere party!
Jill as made it known that she will not watch the show, but I suppose she’s changed her mind - after all she needs something to keep her name in the press as clearly Skweeze Couture isn’t doing it. Following last Monday’s episode featuring the mommy wars between Pinot Singer and Jill’s made-for-TV buddy LuAnn, Jill wrote a scathing blog posted to her website about the show and Ramona.
Among the comments Jill made, she implies that Ramona is an alcoholic which may just be the worst kept secret in reality television and mocked this season’s low ratings as a result of her being fired! Jill has since deleted the blog, citing that she was advised to “sleep on it” in a tweet. Well Reality Tea was able to procure a copy from one of our sleuthy readers!
Amber Portwood has officially relocated to her new home for the next five years. Just one week after the final season of Teen Mom began airing, Amber checked in to the Indiana state prison where she will begin to serve out her five year sentence.
TMZ learned that Amber was transported from the local jail she had been housed in to the Rockville Correctional Facility yesterday morning. Amber opted to serve out the remainder of her sentence instead of returning to the court ordered drug rehabilitation program, citing that she was so depressed it caused another suicide attempt.
I’m not sure about her logic, as I can’t really think of anything more depressing than spending the next couple years in prison, but there’s many aspects of Amber’s judgement I wholeheartedly question!
This is terribly sad and hopefully Amber’s life will turn around.
THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S DECISION TO SERVE OUT HER PRISON SENTENCE?
On June 27th Joe Giudice will return to court to finalize negotiations for a possible plea bargain resulting from his 2011 indictment for obtaining a fraudulent license and other associated crimes. Joe negotiated more time to attempt to arrange a deal and previously rejected a plea bargain offered by the state to serve five years in prison with no restrictions on when he would be eligible for parole.
Joe has been hoping to avoid jail time in exchange for an extended probationary period, however Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay Mc Cann has announced that’s simply not an option. According to North Jersey.com, McCann commented that at least “some jail time” must be part of any plea agreement the state accepts as Joe’s charges are “too serious to allow a probation-only sentence.” Well, there you have it – it looks Joe will be headed to prison sometime soon.
Oh reality television stars… you never cease to amaze me. One of the greatest things about reality TV is scathing, over the top, out of control ridiculous cat fights, arguments, and behind the back insults. It’s what differentiates reality from reality TV. See, I would never call someone a “dumb drag queen” … but in the wilds of reality TV, anything goes!
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our favorite reality TV insults. Below is some delightful footage of our hardworking stars doing what they do best – acting nutty and getting paid to do so! Let the memories come flooding back.
Well, I have a lot I want to say on this matter, but I think I’ll mainly refrain from commenting and let you esteemed readers do my dirty work! So, Lauren Manzo is getting some magazine covers of her own. This is hot on the heels of her complaining that Teresa Giudice is getting paid to talk to the ‘bloids.
Anyway, Lauren recently spoke to Us Weekly (via their print edition) about her weight loss and surprise, surprise it had little to do with drinking egg whites and lots to do with lap band surgery which allowed her to lose 30lbs. Lauren had the surgery on September 21st and says that combined with a healthier diet and exercise, she has dropped from 185lbs to 155lbs in nine months.
Vh1 is about to unleash Hollywood Exes upon us. The show will follow the lives of five women once married to major Hollywood A-listers. Now that they’re no longer married to huge stars, the ex-wives are hitting up realty TV to resuscitate their images. Sadly, it probably won’t have the desired effects, but anyway, the drama on this show looks over the top and these girls are going the distance to get some attention!
Per VH1: “Simply put, these girls are starting over. They all divorced young and got married even younger so now is when they need each other’s backs the most. And from raising kids to starting up a new business … these women are ready to tackle a VERY busy year.”
“At a glance, all these girls are at a different phase in their relations with their exes. Some have remained friends while others can’t even say their names out loud, but either way, the girls have the support of each other to fall back on. These women aren’t exactly new acquaintances either. Some have known each other even before they were married so there is clearly a strong sisterhood within the group dynamic. ”
Hollywood Exes premieres Wednesday, June 27th at 9/8c on VH1
There must be something in the water because it’s baby news galore in the reality TV world. It seems everyone is pregnat, trying to be, or talking about babies!
First up, Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell is reportedly pregnant with baby no 2! Months before she’s due to walk down the aisle with fiancé Tyler Baltierra, Catelynn is apparently telling friends she is expecting.
Jamie Pyrzewski, a friend of the reality star shared the news with the never reliableIn Touch Weekly. “She said, ‘You’re never going to believe it: I’m pregnant,’” Jamie dishes, adding that she is one of the first people out of a small group of friends and family that Catelynn told – which is why she’s spilling the details to a national magazine.
“We were both quiet. I asked how she felt about it. She said she was nervous and scared,” Jamie adds. At first Catelynn was apparently panicked, but now she’s thrilled.
So last night on Real Housewives of Orange County we watched Tamra Barney get engaged to Eddie Judge on the most amazingly romantic trip to Bora Bora. It was a beautiful proposal and a lovely vacation – and congrats to the happy couple. Dang, I’d date Eddie for a vacation like that.
There’s been a lot of gossip that this trip was originally planned for Gretchen Rossi and Slave Smileybecause he was going to surprise her with a proposal in the hopes of getting a spinoff, of course! Unfortunately – according to legend – Gretchen found out about Slave’s plan and flipped her shizz so Bravo offered up the trip to Eddie instead. And it’s a good thing that Gretchen refused to go, because while Eddie has a job, Slave doesn’t and we all know there’s no way in hell he could afford the Four Seasons and first class airfare to Bora Bora.
Now I’m not saying Eddie wasn’t planning to propose already – he probably was – but who would pass up a 5-star vacation to Bora Bora? Not anyone with sense, that’s for sure. Tamra is obviously beside herself that anyone would ever think such a thing and even went so far to get into a twitter snipe fest with former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord over the accusation. You know there may be no truth to it, but as Aviva Drescher reminded us last night where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire – and there’s been a lot of smoke surrounding this story.
