Taylor volunteers for the organization and has claimed she will be donating a portion of her book proceeds to their efforts. The event took place at Dana’s home and in attendance wereKyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof, and Peggy Tanous. I’m not even sure what to think about Dana’s outfit and appearance!
I noticed her best friend forever Lisa wasn’t in attendance! Also, absent; Camille Grammer, who according to Dana’s Twitter was in Hawaii. Representing for Team Awesome was Dedra Whitt, Camille’s BFFL. “Camille was in Hawaii but she was missed,” Dana wrote.
The event was, of course, sponsored by Ciroc vodka, which frankly, I don’t approve of. “Thank you so much @Ciroc for supporting the 1736 Family Crisis Center with your sponsorship. We were so happy to have you at the event,” Taylor tweeted. American Idol alums, Ace Young and Diana Degarmo performed. I hope Ace didn’t write his own music this time…
More PHOTOS of Taylor and the gang from the event are below!
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, as after a season of bitter drama, she found herself in the crosshairs at the reunion when former friends, Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof, ganged up on her. Lisa has expressed reservations about signing on for a third season ofReal Housewives of Beverly Hills, particularly because her spinoff may or may not happen. Well, apparently, if Lisa returns, she’s making sure the ladies play by her rules!
According to RadarOnline, the drama off-camera was far worse than anything Bravo caught on film, and the fall-out because of the reunion was epic. “Lisa is on the warpath and she’s ready to battle her co-stars,” a source revealed “Lisa told Kyle that she has to take sides now. That she’s either with Lisa or against her.”
Apparently, it’s all a game for the desperate for fame Lisa, who is interested in creating drama. “Lisa is trying to manipulate the other women on the show and she wants Kyle to be on her side and be her friend,” the source added. “And she’ll do anything she can to stir up the drama.” Interesting…
DO YOU BELIEVE THE ALLEGATIONS THAT LISA IS MANIPULATING THE WOMEN FOR DRAMA? IS SHE FORCING KYLE TO BE HER FRIEND FOR RATINGS? THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR AND DANA’S EVENT? DO YOU THINK CAMILLE WOULD HAVE COME?

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured a lot of bad evening attire. Whew. That mess of bad fashion at the anniversary party was so distracting, was it not? We also got some family drama, and Kim playing her new role of lady of the rented mcmansion. Oh, and Phaedra embalmed a dummy!
Things begin with Kim storming around her garage, ordering Sweetie and her father around under the guise of organizing before Kroy comes home. Kim is quite the hoarder collector! Kim claims she’s helping with the shuffling of boxes across the garage, but she’s really just barking orders. Sweetie threatens to call Clark Howard, who is some guy on the local news that exposes employers who mistreat their employees. Yes, Sweetie needs to get on that call.
Sweetie takes a cigarette break and Kim freaks out, chasing her all over the house bellowing and threatening. #timemanagement. Kim explains that Sweetie has become more of a friend than employee, and doesn’t take her job seriously. Is it because Kim has become more of a joke than ever? Although I agree, Sweetie needs to do her job or quit. Kim’s father tells her she needs yoga, she misses the point and says she’s already lost weight. I think he meant she needs to calm down. BTW – is anyone else not surprised Big Poppa is allegedly broke after seeing all that loot?

Happy Kardashianday, oh, I mean Monday. Well both suck, anyways. In today’s Kardashian news, more details emerge about Kris Humphries’ financial issues with his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Kim Kardashian and Kim is allegedly writing a tell-all about her romantic entanglements.
First up, Kris H is accusing Kim of pocketing some of his hard-earned dough. According to TMZ‘s sources, Kris claims he hasn’t received a cent of the paltry money he earned from their televised sham wedding. Apparently, Kim and Kris opened a joint checking account shortly after tying the knot. Into that account went all the money they allegedly earned from wedding related endorsements, photos, etc.
Kris’ revenue from appearing on Kourtney and Kim Take New York and from selling wedding photos also went into that account. And guess who kept all the money now that they’re separated? If you guessed Kim, you guessed right! Apparently, Kris hasn’t seen a cent of that money and even though it’s a joint account, he hasn’t made an effort to withdraw his portion.
Why? Well, he doesn’t really care – all he really wants is an annulment! Kris’ attorney hasn’t commented on the circumstances but I wouldn’t put it past Kim to have sticky fingers where dollar bills are concerned!
Moving on, Kim is writing a tell-all! Yep, Kim expects us to believe she is writing a book when she can barely type an email and needed Kris H to edit it for her. The reality star who is really only known for two things–her butt and how she uses it–is making all her romantic flops work to her advantage and is penning a steamy book that gives all the gory details.
Haven’t we seen enough with the sex tape? According to In Touch Weekly (via their print edition), Kim has decided to spare no details and will be talking her sex tape, her relationship with Reggie Bush, and her two failed marriages! Kim has decided “going into a lot of detail” from her own perspective will help the public see her in a better light and will rehab her image. In fact, Kim’s motive is to make people understand her better and get the public back on her side again!
Sadly, Kim’s decision to spill her dirty sheet-crets means the end of her relationship with Reggie, who is completely disgusted by the idea!
And taking a break from her challenging job as an author, Kim returned to what she does best – putting on make-up and taking photographs. The desperate reality star posted photos of herself in different colored wigs to her Instagr.am site on Friday. Kim is a blonde in one shot and a redhead in the other. “Do blondes have more fun?;” she wondered.
Kim told Us Weekly her motivation was not for attention, but because, “I love changing my hair up. It makes me feel like a new me!” Maybe she’s entering the witness protection program since her image in such shambles!
Finally, the good stuff! Real celebrities are again slamming the Kardashian clan for the pathetic creatures they are. Jon Hamm, the award-winning Mad Men star, went on a rant about those so-called “stars” degrading themselves for attention.
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” he told Elle UK. “Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
“Incuriousness has become cool… It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me,” he added. Yikes. That’s um… pretty harsh! The K-fam has also been criticized by Daniel Craig, Jonah Hill, Michelle Obama, and Snoop Dogg for their trashy and deplorable behavior! Hey, I will say they have one talent down to a science – annoying people!
And just moments ago, Kimmie Kakes took to her Twitter page to respond to being called an idiot! Kim tweeted the following statement written by her publicist -
“I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, “stupid,” is in my opinion careless.”
Dear Kim, you’re still an idiot doll! Sincerely, Reality Tea.
DOES KIM OWE KRIS MONEY? WOULD YOU READ KIM’S TELL-ALL? WERE JON HAMM’S COMMENTS OUT OF LINE OR TRUTHFUL?

Apparently,Bethenny Frankel‘s marriage is in even more trouble than we see on TV. The candid and inappropriate humor loving star can allegedly add “diva from hell” to her vast resume because that’s exactly what she’s turned into according to reports! Bethenny never denied being difficult but her demands have reached the intolerable level and she is now pushing husband Jason Hoppy over the edge!
Bethenny has always been a bit of a famewhore – like her or not, one doesn’t do a string of reality shows if there isn’t some level of fameitis in your bloodstream. Recently, her obsession with fame is escalating; causing some serious rifts in her marriage, as Jason would like to settle down, live the family life, and leave television behind. Bethenny has other ideas!
Bethenny’s success has definitely gone to her head and it’s affecting her marriage – which is closer to divorce than ever! “They had dinner with Ellen DeGeneres when they were in LA a few months ago, and Bethenny didn’t shut up. She treats Jason badly in front of her famous friends,” an insider Julierecounts to In Touch Weekly (via their print edition). “Now that she has the baby she wanted, she doesn’t need a reality TV husband.”
Many have suspected while watching this season of Bethenny Ever After that Bethenny has almost no time in her life for Jason, as she often complains about him and pushes him aside. Apparently, that’s closer to reality than fiction. In fact, Bethenny’s rising star is forcing her family to give up more and more family time for her career.
“I love Montauk so much. Having the freedom to run around with Bryn in the beautiful sun is something I cherish. We’re building memories to last a lifetime,” Bethenny writes in her Bravo blog. “Family summer days are our favorite.”
Sadly, for the Frankel-Hoppy fam, things won’t be as leisurely this summer as Bethenny, yet again, as an agenda to put their life on television! “This summer we’ll be in LA filming my talk show and we’ll miss it,” she reveals.
Calling allegations of marital strife and famegrubbing nonsense, an insider disputes that Bethenny and Jason are unhappy! “This is absolutely ridiculous! Bethenny and the word DIVA should never be in the same sentence,” Bethenny the source tells RumorFix.
“She works her rear end off, every day and all the time. She and Jason are extremely happy.” Interesting, because Bethenny herself has admitted both on television and in interviews that her marriage has been a challenge and they are working on things!
Moving on, tonight marks a new episode of Bethenny Ever After. Bethenny confesses that she and Jason are fighting, but have decided to go on the couple’s boating trip. Sadly, they get into an explosive argument while leaving for the boat and Jason storms off leaving Bethenny and Bryn behind! And again the question: Why do you want your marital implosion on TV?
Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 8/9c. A preview of the new episode is below!

TELL US – IS BETHENNY’S DIVA BEHAVIOR RUINING HER MARRIAGE? HAS SHE LET THE FAME GO TO HER HEAD OR IS THIS JUST MORE RIDICULOUS GOSSIP?

The third season of Real Housewives of New Jersey got down right nasty, and the reunion pretty much goes down in history as the most insane and vitriolic reunion ever. Even worse than whenTeresa Giudice pushed Andy Cohen while trying to go after Danielle Staub. No, last year’s reunion was worse as we saw family go head-to-head and longtime friends turn on each other.
Jacqueline Laurita famously sat out, opting to stay home and tweet instead of facing the questions in person. She has kept quiet about what her real motivations were for skipping the mayhem, and even claiming she was sick. Well, Jacs is finally speaking out about why she didn’t take part in C-List celebrity Deathmatch: The Bravo Edition!
“There were a lot of things going on. A lot of things behind the scenes, actually. It was a long build-up. There were a lot of things that got me to that breaking point,” Jacqueline explains to Ranu’s Reviews.
And she is confirming what all her twitter followers already knew – she had a breakdown! “I had like a little breakdown if you will. I just had enough of everything. I just didn’t want to be involved in anything. I just wanted to be alone. I went through something.”
Jacqueline admits she is no more excited about season four than she was about the reunion. Season four has already been filmed. “I have to say Season 4 was a very hard season for me. It was a little different on camera then the pressures I was getting off camera.”
“I always try to do the right thing by everybody and that’s what I always try to do but sometimes people don’t perceive things that way. It was really hard. I went through a really hard time with a lot of it,” she reveals.
As for what viewers can expect next season, she says a lot of changes! “There is a lot of relationship shifting. I think by the time the reunion comes out a lot will be explained,” Jacqueline concludes.
Moving on, Dina Manzo‘s image as the golden and charitable girl just sitting at home with her crystals and cats is about to be destroyed. Our source exclusively tells Reality Tea that Dina’s image, just like her friendship with Teresa, is all for show!
“Little Mrs Charity……is not who everyone thought she was,” our source asserts. “Dina’s social media image is SO farfetched from who the ‘real’ Dina is. Those who really know her just shake their heads and laugh.”
If you’re wondering if Dina and Caroline Manzo have patched things up, the answer is no. They’re still not speaking; nor is Dina speaking to Jacqueline. Many have wondered how Dina could continue her friendship with Teresa, particularly after all the drama with Caroline, and the answer is money! Apparently, the two have a completely business relationship built around mutual favors.
“Teresa taped a segment for her party planning show, Dina’s Party. She needs Teresa to help her with her popularity. In return, Dina attended her beverage launch party and was filmed by Bravo. Their interaction was so fake,” the insider describes. “Dina also wants to come out with a book and she wants to use the same publishing house as Teresa. So, basically it is a business deal. Dina may take to Twitter to praise Teresa but, that is not what she claims behind the scene.”
And even worse, our insider says Dina has stopped caring about her charity, Project Ladybug, now that she has her own show! “Project Ladybug was a charity started by ALL the Laurita sisters. When Dina went on the show [RHONJ], she took it over as if she was the founder and the blood, sweat, and tears behind it.”
“She wanted the glory and the attention associated with Project Ladybug. She wanted to look like the hero,” the source adds. Caroline and their other sister, Cookie Laurita allowed Dina to take the lead and downplayed their involvement, but Dina “only speaks of Project Ladybug as if it were her own.”
Apparently, now that Dina’s Party has come along, Dina barely spends any time on the charity she once claimed to love, and has skipped events to promote her party planning and decorating ventures. The source points to Dina’s twitter account as proof that she has lost interest in the charity. “It is sad but Dina used it to get herself out there more,” the source shares.
Dina made a brief appearance at the Chicago launch of the charity last year and has done nothing more to support the cause. “Dina did nothing for that event but, show up,” the source adds.
Finally, the RHONJ are launching yet another alcoholic beverage.Kathy Wakile, the fashionably challenged cousin of Teresa, recently launched her own Red Velvet Cake Flavored Vodka. In honor of the newest drink I’m sure no one will buy to come out of the Bravo Home Shopping Network, Kathy, along withMelissa Gorga (who will do anything for a photo-op) made an appearance at Bottle King in Wayne, NJ.
Also in attendance was Melissa’s daughter, Anotonia, Richie Wakile and Victoria. Photos from the event are below!

UPDATE – Dina tweeted the following to us in response to our report. She wrote: “@realitytea hey just read ur post! Next time u want a source #truth ask my parents or the parents of a ladybug not an envious loser! Thanks!”
Kim Kardsahian, likely went into her divorce with Kris Humprhies expecting nothing could go wrong; that perhaps Kris, like herself, could see they were not suited for each other and they would both go their separate ways–with the pre-nup firmly in tact–and everyone feeling sorry for Kim that she married a dud. Unfortunately, Kim’s hubris didn’t allow her to see the forest for the trees. And she didn’t expect a hurt and furious Kris, feeling fooled and taken advantage of, to fight back!
Kris is continuing his quest to expose Kim for the lying fraud she is – and that is terrifying the increasingly depressed and unhappy star. The ex-couple is headed to court on Monday, March 12th for the beginning stages of their divorce trial!
One thing Kris is fighting for is his reputation restored; the NJ Nets forwards feels his portrayal on Kourtney & Kim Take New York has besmirched his reputation and forced the public to see him as someone he is not. And Kim is fighting to keep her secrets from being exposed!
“All he really wants is for his name to be cleared and for the Kardashians to be honest about their malicious intentions and manipulations,” a friend tells Life & Style (via their print edition). “He wants people to know he isn’t the guy they made him out to be. If they’re unwilling to do that, Kris is prepared to fight.”
And proving that he’s not backing down, Kris’ Minnesota-based lawyer, Lee Hutton has been approved to represent him in LA – and Kim is not contesting that! Kim is trying to do everything in her power to make this go away quickly and quietly, approving Kris’ requests will speed up the process.
Kim is extremely worried about this process dragging on, and she’s very afraid of what Kris’ team will drag up! “Kim is terrified to face Kris,” her friend reveals. “She knows he wants to humiliate her the way he feels she’s humiliated him.”
“Kris’ team is looking for every excuse to force her to take the stand,” Kim’s friend adds. If Kim takes the stand, she’ll be forced to be truthful, because if she lies under oath that would be perjury and she could be arrested. Kris wholeheartedly believes that Kim’s public image is based on carefully constructed lies. Because it is.
Luckily for Kris, all the negative publicity and self-centered behavior has shown Kim in an extremely unflattering light, and she is scrambling desperately to restore the public to her side. Kim’s pathetic attempts to seem like a good and honest person have been mocked by the media and former fans have turned on her as well. Kim has even tried turning to church to restore her popularity!
“This is torturing to her,” the friend insists. “The longer this drags on the more despondent she becomes. This is the worst time in her life.”
Even Kim’s family is fed up with this nonsense! “It’s hard for them to be sympathetic,” a friend reveals. “Her family is sick of her complaining, and without their support she’s starting to really fall apart.” Well, perhaps if Kim wasn’t so obsessed with her image and hadn’t built her self-esteem around popularity, she wouldn’t be crumbling because the media is no longer her best friend!
“Kim is emotionally devastated,” a friend explains. “The backlash has destroyed her.” The unhappy star has apparently turned to emotional eating and is now starting to gain weight! “Kim wakes up every morning in a nightmare that just won’t end!”
While Kim sits at home alone and depressed, pretending life is fine; Kris’ career is booming. He’s had a great season and is proving to the world that he moved on.
Kim’s family is frustrated that her actions have affected their income and worry this could permanently destroy everything they’ve built. Additionally, If Kris is successful in proving “fraud”, the prenup the former couple signed would be invalid and Kim could be forced to hand over half of her fortune. And oh, wouldn’t that be fantastic!
She is so desperate to stop Kris, Kim is practically bribing him! Kim expected Kris would ask for $2 million dollars in the settlement, and was prepared to shell out, but now news has emerged that Kris wants more – much more! Kris is seeking $7M from the star – which is less than half of the reported $17M Kim pocketed on their sham wedding!
According to TMZ, Kris apparently issued an ultimatum through his attorney, stating she either write a check or they’re headed to court! Apparently, Kim isn’t ready to pony up just yet. Kim’s camp is contesting, claiming Kris made an estimated $1M through wedding related publicity and deals – a number far smaller than the money she allegedly earned. And arguing means she’s treading on dangerous grounds.
Kris feels he’s entitled to that money because the Kardashians used him to grow their fortune! And he is looking to prove it in court! Kris believes “that there was a malicious intention by the Kardashians to use Kris and to make money and benefit themselves from him ,” a source shares with HollywoodLife. “He wants them to publicly admit that they never intended for it to be a real marriage.” I’m guessing he will also be subpoenaing some bank statements!
Although, the source is quick to point out Kris’ demands have little to do with making money. “Kris isn’t mean, he doesn’t do things to others and it’s not about the money,” and Kris plans to donate most of the proceeds from the divorce to charity!
Is anyone else really excited to see how this all pans out. A public trial would be the juiciest thing to hit reality TV since…well, ever!

IS KRIS ENTITLED TO MILLIONS FROM KIM? WILL SHE SHELL OUT TO AVOID A PUBLIC TRIAL? CAN SHE EVER RESTORE HER IMAGE?
All is well with the world today and everybody’s happy. An indicator of the world’s righteousness, is that Lindsay Lohan is once again a red-head, which I am taking as a sign that her boozing and breaking the law days are behind her. Now, if only Bethenny Frankel would get the memo to put on a happy face!
Bethenny has become as known for her woe is me attitude, as she has for her svelte physique. In the latest news, the skinnygirl is, again, talking about what’s wrong with her life and now she’s complaining about being rich! Good lord!
That’s right, after earning an estimated $120 M on her bottled cocktails, Bethenny now says, no one is nice to her because she can pay her bills without hawking handbags. Right.
In a new Forbes interview, the Bethenny Ever After star bemoans the “despicable” treatment she receives because she has made the big bucks. “The most difficult thing in my journey is the way that people have reacted to my making money,” she tellsForbes Woman. “Money brings out a really vicious side in other people. It surprises me because you always think about people making money and it changing them, you never think about it changing everything else. Fame isn’t the thing that changed the people around me, but money is.”
Interesting Bethenny says these things, because I certainly think fame has changed her. She used to be likeable and funny, and now she is, well… just keep reading! “People look at you differently. People make up stories about you,” Bethenny laments. “People speculate about what you’ve had and what you’ve done and really try and tear you down and I had no idea that would be the case. And I think it’s really despicable.” I guess that’s the cost of putting your life on a reality TV show. Everybody knows your business.
Bethenny concedes that she has given up a lot to make it in business, particularly that she wants a second child and may not be able to conceive because of her age. Bethenny suffered a miscarriage last month. “I’m faced with the fact that I’m 41 and I may not be able to have more children and that feels like a sacrifice.” Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy have revealed they are open to adoption.
Despite the awful treatment she receives as a poor skinny rich girl, Bethenny still feels life is pretty good. Well, kinda. “Generally I am happy,” she says. “With a side of unhappy.” That’s our Bethenny!
Moving on, Martha Stewart, one of my favorite people ever, was on Watch What Happens LiveWednesday night and Andy Cohen could barely contain his glee. It was a great show! We saw some vintage Martha clips, she taught us how to fold a t-shirt, and she made a lot of funnies. Oh, and she did a shot! Of course, since this is Bravo and she is Martha; Bethenny’s appearance on her first foray into reality television came up! Yep, Bethenny was once the second runner-up on Martha Stewart’s The Apprentice spin-off.
When a caller asked if she regretted not choosing Bethenny as the winner, Martha admitted (with a tone of sarcasm), “I made a big mistake.” Despite some comments Bethenny has made, putting down Martha for not choosing her, Martha says the two are amicable. “She still says hi to me.”
Well, Martha is the goddess of all things domestic – who wouldn’t say hello!? I bet Martha’s not complaining about how people treat her now that she’s loaded. See a clip of Martha on WWHL discussing Bethenny below!

Last night on Project Runway All Stars the three finalist were revealed after the designers had to create a ready-to-wear look for designer, Nanette Lepore.
The designers meet Nanette in her garment district store and we learn commercialization combined with rising rents are forcing many factories and designers out of the infamous district. Nanette is very involved in a charity to revitalize the area (as is Isaac Mizrahi). The designers are to sketch one ready-to-wear piece and then go over the analytics with Nanette and her “coster.” The coster basically tells them how much the garment would sell for vs. how much it would cost to produce and make a profit. The difference is how much they can spend on fabrics to construct the piece.
