“I look at the iconic women who’ve had trials and tribulations in their lives, and “I don’t pretend to be an ordinary housewife” from Elizabeth Taylor comes to mind. I’ll address my fans soon enough and appreciate all your positive thoughts and comments. Love~Vicki”
Awwww…don’t drag my Liz Taylor into this mess. First, Jill Zarin nabs her jewels, then Lindsay Lohanruins plays her in a movie role, and now this. She doesn’t deserve it!
Ok, it’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewed Teresa Giudice‘s third cookbook, Fabulicious: Fast & Fit and her Fabellini Cocktail. While the recipes and igredences in the cookbook were pretty good, the cocktail had me reminiscing about college memories slurping up the Boone’s Farm in a frat house. I was a classy girl, alright.
This month we’re honoring the OG of the Housewives franchises, Vicki Gunvalson and taking a look-see through her self-help/memoir More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! Yep, that’s the title in its entirety. The Real Housewives of Orange County star wants you to know that you too can be an insurance megastar (and meet a winner like Brooks Ayers at conventions! Enticing, no?) if only you learn from her experiences.
I was hoping for some killer throwback photos of Vicki and co. in the good old days, but yeah there were none. We also reviewed the offerings of Wines By Wives. Now there’s nothing I love more than a bottle of red, but a memoir sans childhood photos? Not so much!

Say what?! Andy uses graphs and charts to cast the crazy?! According to a new interview with AdAge, Andy credited research for the reasoning behind the firings. “We snort up research like fine Colombian cocaine,” he admitted of the Bravomeisters approach to determining what viewers want.
“I love Twitter because it’s a live focus group,” said Andy, explaining that one reason certain cast members of RHONY were let go was because of negative feedback about them on social media.
Therapy Schmerapy, eh. Teresa Giudice and Joe G-to-the-Orga are clearly beyond help. Existing in a world where all versions of rationale just slip in one ear and right out the other. As Teresa so aptly put it, “I don’t store things in my brain.” Clearly.
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, the siblings from hell attempted to see a therapist to mend their fractured relationship. I guess they don’t understand that it takes way more than one hour-long appointment to patch things up, but Bravo doesn’t have the time to be airing all that. We would be watching RHONJ season 35 if that be the case.
Now I’m no Teresa hater, I find her tolerable and she has redeeming qualities; one of which is her eternal optimism and goofball nature. I don’t know how the Gorgadice families got into this mess that has come to dominate my television and yours for the last two years, and frankly I think both Teresa and Joe, of the salmon colored button-down, told versions of the truth that make sense.
Oh dear… more possible reasons for Jennifer Williams‘ divorce from Eric “Egg Head” Williams are emerging. According to a new report Eric fathered a “secret love child” in 2011 and now his baby mama is seeking child support. I guess Eric hasn’t listened to Kanye West‘s song enough…
TMZ is reporting that Tavia Serena Cannon filed a Complaint for Support in PA last week because she insists she had a child with theBasketball Wives star’s ex-husband in October 2011. Which means Eric allegedly hooked-up with Miss Tavia in Jan or February of 2011 while he was still married to Jenn! Oopsie. Jennifer filed for divorce from Eric in June 2011.
Well, the ladies have been kinda quiet all week – save for a few stories about the same old, same old – and for that we are thankful. However while things seem slightly at peace, for now, Reality Tea’s source EXCLUSIVELY reveals some inside drama from Melissa’s “On Display” party last week!
“Melissa‘s party was a bunch of random people. NONE of Melissa’s friends or family were there except, of course, her two sisters. None of Joe Gorga‘s family was there either,” our source shares. “There were not that many people there at all. It was so strange. There were some random Twitter fans there.”

Well… that was shocking wasn’t it? This Friday evening “20/20″ bestowed upon Brooks Ayers the honor of giving him his own segment on the popular news show. Even Slave Smiley hasn’t been that lucky!
Yep, in front of the whole nation, on a nationally syndicated immensely popular news show, Brooks was outed as a deadbeat dad by his ex-girlfriend NicoletteCatanzarite. How’d you like them apples? Or oranges, if you will. I say Karma is a bitch, and I love her for it!
I’m sure Bravo is beside themselves with glee over the news that Real Houewives of Orange County‘s stellar reputation has been besmirched by the allegations – and I am most positiveVicki Gunvalson‘s obsessive love for con-man Brooks will suddenly wilt. In fact I anticipate that very soon she’ll be issuing a statement about how they’ve grown apart, but she wishes him nothing but love.
And whaddya wanna bet Vicki‘s friendship with Tamra Barney will be rekindled, with a statement about how Tamra was good friend, just looking out for her.
Jim Bellino is nobody’s fool. Wait… what did I just write?! Anyway, he wears the big boy pants – and he wants Bravo to know it! The most detested of the Real Housewives of Orange County husbands is setting the record straight on Tuesday’s season finale party – and apparently not only did Terry Dubrow invite him to the party; Jim has the texts to prove it. Danggit Jim, don’t you go making me like you now!
In addition to Jim calling Terry out, Alexis Bellino is taking Queen Chesire CatHeather Dubrow and her fellow Housewives to task for pretending thatSarah Winchester, cake destroyer extraordinaire, was an uninvited guest. Like, duh, Sarah was, like, so for real invited by Bravo. I bet they even told her to wear that $3 Pretty Woman reject hooker dress!
