The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is touted for being one of the first (and really the only) cross-over reality TV stars – i.e. making the shift from reality TV to scripted television in a regular role. NeNe had a season-long guest role on the hit show Glee and starting this fall she will be a regular castmember on Ryan Murphy‘s new sitcom The New Normal.
According to the WSJ: “The divide between reality shows and more-traditional scripted series has long been the Berlin Wall of the TV landscape. Talent competitions like ‘American Idol’ have launched successful entertainers, and so-called docusoaps like ‘Real Housewives’ have created their own genus of celebrity. But stars who find fame under their own names have trouble getting work as fictional characters.”
Aaaahhh… the fallout from the Real Housewives of New Jersey Napa trip continues – and we still have one more episode to go! Following last week’s very embarrassing Giudice adventure where Teresa Giudice propositioned her husband in the vineyard (5 feet away from friends and family) after she over-heard him having some phone canoodling with a work buddy, things continue to erupt for the Joisee clan.
Jacqueline Laurita – former BFF of Teresa – recently came forward to reveal her son Nicholas‘ autism diagnosis – and while she’s more than willing to be upfront about that she is not willing to comment on Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s marriage.
“I’m not going to comment on what came out on this episode regarding Joe , because I feel that it is such a sensitive matter to talk about, and I am sure it was very hurtful for Teresa and her family to see. Despite our fighting, my heart hurt for her. That is all I will say on that matter,” Jacqueline states in her Bravo Blog.
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?
If you must marry a Real Househusband what’s your poison? Is it Jailtime Joe Giudice of the felony charges, drunken buffoon persuasion or Tareq Salahi of the White House crashing, pathological lying, fake charity persuasion. Hey – they’re both bankrupt!
A) Be married to Real Housewives of DC loser Tareq - who may or may not sell your underwear on eBay and report your every menstrual cycle and calorie consumption to TMZ. Oh yeah – he’ll also buy you a pony and take it away!
B) Be married toReal Housewives of New Jersey loser Juicy – who may or may not call you a c-u-next-tuesday on national TV, while farting in your face and telling you it smells like rotten eggs. He’ll also probably get drunk and puke on your sparkly dress and cuss at your kids!
Oh, sweet mercy – that’s a tough one! (insert evil laugh here). Give your answer below and don’t forget to spread the fun!
Last night on Project Runway it was the dreaded “real women” challenge. I so hate this challenge. First of all, I just want to see amazing clothes and I want to minimize anything that involves bitching designers, throwing tantrums, and refusing to try at making decent clothes for “regular people.”
The special twist was that the “real people” were nominated by a friend ala What Not To Wear and the PR bitchies were the poor slobs sent in to do the make-over. Really, really, really never was there a day that I wished for Clinton and Stacey more!
There’s not much to say about this challenge except that the usual bitch queens were even more bitch queens and Ven’s arrogance was the most plus-sized thing in that workroom. He was horrid every step of the way and I felt terrible for his client – both for her so-called make-over AND because he was so dismissive of her. Not only that, but he was blaming his attitude and design flaws on her for being “fat” and “unhappy.”
He was terrible from start to finish and thankfully his fellow designers were all disgusted by his attitude. I just want to remind you that: “Working with the plus-sized is very, very challenging.” Isn’t Ven plus-sized? His horrible client should just go shop at Kardashian Kollection! <<eye roll>>
The most surprising thing was that Gunnar was extremely pleasant and concerned about his client. It made me kinda like him. Sure, sure – it was the reality TV gods tripping with us and trying to make us like a snippy, snide queen whose evil spider monkey hiss still haunts me in my sleep. Anyway, good for your mantsie pantsie for being real person and letting your lady shine. Too bad the outfit was a hot hideous mess!
I have to admit I love Dancing With The Stars partner photos. Oh, lord the cheese! It’s better than funnel cake at the county fair (oh which I am desperately craving right. now). And what’s better than regular DWTS photos? ALL STAR VERSIONS!
ABC just released the first batch of our favorite cheese ball professional dancers and our favorite desperately seeking a return to relevance ‘celebrities’!
Curiously, Maksim Chmerkovskiy (currently under fire for allegedly slapping former partner Hope Solo during last season’s rehearsals) and Kirstie Alley‘s photo is missing for the bunch! Kiristie tweeted: “We haven’t shot ours yet..We shoot next week..:) been gone”
Also, ABC is still stringing us along for who will be the lucky 13th dancer. I just heard a rumor that Kate Gosselin was added to the mix! Just kidding… but who doesn’t crave another dose of her insane bitchiness and the gossip that surrounds it?
Behold the glamour below! Let’s get judgey, shall we.
Uh-oh – is another Bachelorette romance biting the dust right out of the gate? Apparently Emily Maynard has been caught in a texting scandal by new-found fiance Jef Holm. Oh, dear.
Apparently while on a family vacation with Jef’s family he discovered racy texts being sent to an unidentified man. “There were texts and pictures: ‘Let’s do this and that with each other,’” a source reveals to Us Weekly.
Jef and Emily went into a bedroom and were yelling. He said, ‘You’ve been f**king cheating on me for months!’”
Jef reportedly told Emily:”‘Pack your s**t and get the f**k out.’” Allegedly Ricki was there during the fight and Emily told Jef to watch what he was saying in front of her daughter. The fight culminated with a sobbing Emily leaving the Myrtle Beach, S.C beach house, Ricki in tow, in the middle of the night.
If ever there was a time I am thankful that reality TV has captured the horrible behavior of people it’s in the case of Jenelle Evans. TheTeen Mom 2 star has just announced she wants to take her mom, Barbara Evans, to court for full custody of her son Jace! And a friend declares that Jenelle is changing her life in preparation for a court battle.
I have to warn you in advance this story makes me furious and and I am letting Miss Nude Photo Scandal have it – via blog snark of course!
I’m not sure when Jenelle will find the time to parent in between her constant legal dramas and nude photo scandals and accusations of drug use and constant loser boyfriend procuring and tweeting, but apparently she thinks she will. Maybe she can give up her lucrative career of selling Scentsy to make time for her son. #sarcasm.
I swear Teresa Giudice has said a million times that her husband Joe Giudice doesn’t do Twitter. Aaaahhh… what’s another lie to a Giudice! Apparently he does! Taking to Twitter yesterday Juicy defended himself against the allegations of cheating following the shocking phone call captured on last Sunday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey.
It turns out Le Juicy has a lot of gems on Twitter. And yes, he threatened to bust someone in the face. He’s like the Mr. T of reality TV, except all trash no class!
First of all, from way back when, Juicy dispelled this amazing classic: “So RHONJ comes back on tonight. All the cattiness with other women resurfaces once again.Some people are just jealous. And its not my wife.”
