Booze N’ Books

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 NeNe Leakes' Never Make The Same MIstake Twice. And for cocktails we did the great Real Housewives of Atlanta Moscato-off. In case you weren't aware Kim Zoliciak and Cynthia Bailey both offer their own versions of the wine, and NeNe allegedly has (had?) one. 

This month we're branching out and offering another network the opportunity to hawk some swag and reviewing Evelyn Lozada's Inner Circle: The Wives Association. And because surprisingly – very surprisingly given their propensity for drunken antics – none of the ladies of Basketball Wives offers a cocktail, we're reviewing Melissa Gorga's Voli Lyte Vodka. The ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey are inundated with bottled beverages it seems.

Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewed Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s book  More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! along with her Wines By Wives club, her joint venture with Tamra Barney.

August was all about the Housewives of AtlantaKim Zociak, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey.  We gave Mary a month off from ‘testing’, as we don’t want to pay for her rehab nor be forced to co-author her memoir “Will Blog For Booze” and since I love me some cheap wine moscato, I took one for the team!

Have you read NeNe Leakes‘ mem-whah ‘Never Make the Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way?’ Tried Kim Zolciak‘s new moscato Viva Moscato? What about  Cynthia Bailey‘s endorsed PT Moscato? Want to? Well Reality Tea is doing a special Real Housewives of Atlanta edition of our Booze N’ Books Club!

If you’ve sampled the wares – or want to – join us! We’ve been reading NeNe’s book and doing a Moscato-off. So, we’re putting in our two-cents. OK, it’s more like 50cents cause we have a lot of opinions, but whatever!

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!

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 kicked things off by reviewing Bethenny Frankel, the queen of reality star promotions and the inventor of the Bravo Home Shopping Network’s, new novel Skinnydipping and one of the umpteen Skinnygirl cocktails. We weren’t so impressed with Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo, but the book – a little bit better. We invited our readers to participate in the fun by submitting some of their own reviews – and we got some good ones and some photos to match

This month, we’re reviewing Bravo’s other Home Shopping Network queen – the controversial Teresa Giudice. Teresa has turned lemons into well, money flavored lemonade and she is paying her bills (and hopefully her creditors) with her immense popularity and her old-school Italian recipes.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s newest cookbook – her third – is Fabulicous: Fast & Fit. On the NY Times Bestseller list for the third week in a row, the book advertises healthy alternatives to Italian recipes in 30 minutes or less. Teresa isn’t stopping there, she also has a bottled cocktail (I wonder where that idea came from? wink, wink) called Fabellini. Well, we hardworking girls at Reality Tea reviewed both and lemme tell you our jobs are really crappy.

Watch out Bethenny Frankel – there’s another Housewife mogul nipping at your heels! Teresa Giudice just announced that her third cookbook Fabulicous Fast & Fit has made it’s way to the NY Times Bestseller list.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to Facebook to announce the good news!

“Jumping, screaming, flipping table in happiness!!! ‘Fabulicous: Fast & Fit’ made the NYT Bestseller list!!! 3 books in a row! I have the MOST amazing fans! Thank you, thank you! I am so honored & humbled you all have stuck by me! Love love love you.”

So, does Teresa like exclamation points or what? First rumors of a spinoff, now a three-time bestseller… Teresa may just be the next uber successful Bravo star to go out on her own! Congratulations, Tre!

And just a reminder – Reality Tea will be reviewing Fabulicous: Fast & Fit for next month’s Booze ‘N’ Books Club! Grab a copy and let us know what you think of Teresa’s newest bestseller. We’re also reviewing her cocktail Fabellini. The best reviews will be published on our site! Keep them fun and be honest – good, bad, ugly, and divine! Submissions are due May 25th.

SURPRISED TERESA MADE THE LIST AGAIN? HAVE YOU USED ANY OF HER COOKBOOKS?
