Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies (and their omnipresent hardworking spouses) proved that when push comes to shove and contracts are on the line, they can get along like really, really well. In fact the only people not pasting on their happy faces were Caroline Manzo and husband Albert - who I was surprised to hear speak last night.
Things begin with a wake-up binge drink-a-thon amongst the men. The gang decides they are going surfing despite the freezing cold water and their inebriated state of mind. Everyone except Caroline and Al. They prefer whine to wine. Jacqueline Laurita is also sitting this one out because she feels too fat to wear a wetsuit. Didn’t she have this problem last vacation?
Never willing to spare anyone’s feelings both Teresa Giudice and separated at birth sister-in-law Melissa Gorga both strap on some of their more bodacious, sparkly, and revealing bathing suits. ‘LOOK! I’m not fat!’ they both practically shout. The guys are wiping out left and right when Teresa and Kathy Wakile decide to try out their surfboard skills. Melissa is staying ashore to “keep it sexy,” which apparently equals bedazzled. Very, very bedazzled. Like blindingly so.
Once Dina quit reality TV, her relationship with Caroline and sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita fell apart. Caroline has blamed Teresa for the falling out and Dina has vehemently denied this. On a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Dina discussed her current relationship with Caroline and why things went awry.
So last night on Project Runway meltdowns happened, two designers said sayonara, and based on some of the so-called work appropriate attire walking down the runway, some of these people have never led life in the real world.
Both Andrea Katz and Kooan said their good-byes by vacating the competition. Raul returned with a vengeance and continued to suck. The designers went to the Michael Kors store to learn what befalls quitters who aren’t bitchy enough – they pussy out and quit PR! They were also there to have it rubbed in their faces about what a big, flipping deal MC is.
So the designers had to create an outfit for the everyday woman on the go. She’s the girl who does everything – she works and cocktails and goes to match.com mixers, she does club hopping and sample sales and mommyhood and then she travels from Paris Fashion Week to Disney World to Kenya but she’s only allowed to have one outfit to wear to everything. So it can’t wrinkle, it can’t be uncomfortable, and it has to be versatile. So that’s like no biggie right?
Yeah – some of these people have never had a job in an office and apparently think all people everywhere work in the office from The Devil Wears Prada.
The guest judges were designer Rachel Roy – who always provides good critique and thoughtful comments – and Hayden Panettiere who was there as the celebrity cuteface.
The best part about this episode was the abundance of Tim Gunn providing actual mentorship and we need more of that. So thanks for a subtle small reminder of what this show used to be.
Since nobody cares about anything but the clothes, Reality Tea is providing you a snap-judgement photocap. C’mon you know that’s how you watch the show, too!
Aaaahhh…villains. Like in all things storytelling, no good tale works without a villain and a hero. And of course it's the villain who causes all the drama and gives the show its luster. Reality TV is the perfect place for a crazy, scheming, venomous nut job to crop up back stab, lie, and start trouble.
While the heroes get all the fans, the villains make the show. So here's to you, Reality TV villains. And without further ado, here is Reality Tea's list of Top 11 Reality TV Villains! There's just so many good ones.
Former Bachelorette star Jen Schefft and her husband Jason Waterman welcomed a baby girl into the world on Tuesday. Charlotte Grace weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz and joined big sister Mae, 20 months.
“She is a doll and we couldn’t be happier!” Jen announced on twitter. After two stints on the reality dating show (first winning Andrew Firestone‘s heart on The Bachelor), Jen met her husband on a blind date in 2008 and married him a year later.
The ratings on Real Housewives of New York are finally really picking up – which coincidentally coincides with an increase in drama. Out to demonstrate that the on-screen drama matches the off-screen drama the ladies took to Twitter following Monday’s episode to square-off and call each other out. Taking most of the beating? Why Pinot Singer, of course!
First up, Ramona chose to involve herself in the business matters between Heather Thomson and Sonja Morgan. If you recall, Heather announced that Sonja was not a client, because, well clients pay and Sonja she was receiving some friendly advice free of charge.
Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time before the newest Kardashian was pimped out to the masses. And Penelope Scotland Disick has arrived! Kourtney Kardashian introduced her newest spawn via the cover of Us Weekly where the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star talked her family’s newest addition and how Mason is treating the roll of big brother.
“Nothing could prepare me for how hard I fell in love with her,” Kourtney shared. The bigger question is whether or not dad, Scott Disick has gotten his act together yet. And the answer is no – Kourtney tells the mag he hasn’t changed a diaper yet because he’s afraid. Uh… seriously?
