For reasons I will never understand, everyone and their mother want to climb aboard the crazy train that is Real Housewives of New Jersey. When I say everyone, I mean anyone who has come into contact with any of the cast members in the last two decades. They all want to spill the beans and "take down" any number of the show's stars, most hoping for their own 15 minutes of Bravo notoriety. Former babysitters, ex boyfriends, grocery store clerks, hair stylists, first grade recess buddies, you name it!
Last week it wasMelissa Gorga'sex beau from a million moons ago, threatening to expose her (ON screen, of course!) and this week it's a former friend. We had sources crawling out of the woodwork this week – with several different versions of the same story, as seems to always be the case where our leading ladies, Melissa Gorga andTeresa Giudice, areconcerned, right?
While Ashlee has said Kahdijiha randomly and violently attacked her by ripping out chunks of her hair, tearing her clothes, and throwing her to the ground, an inside source tells us that isn't quite how it went down. Our source exclusively shared, "Ashlee's version of events were totally fabricated. There is footage that shows Ashlee throwing a glass at Kahdijiha and Kahdijiha was simply defending herself."
We here at Reality Tea found that announcement surprising, not because Melissa doesn't look hot, but because sister-in-law Teresa Giudice has been mentioning she is planning to release her own fitness DVD to coincide with her healthy eating cookbook empire.
Well, our source shared with us that Melissa's true intention behind announcing a workout DVD was purely to enrage Teresa and try to continue their never-ending competition.
"This fitness video nonsense is unreal. Monkey See Monkey Do…A.K.A Melissa jumped right on the workout bandwagon. She knew Teresa was working on a fitness DVD so she just threw it out there on Twitter that she was making one," our source dishes.
The infamous Real Housewives of New Jersey family feud continues. We hoped 2013 could bring renewed peace and love (if it ever existed in the first place) to sisters-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Guess not. Which is a bummer cause I'm really tired of writing about this.
Our source shares how Teresa spent her New Year's and who was not invited. Hint, hint: her initials are M.G. No surprise there! Unfortunately the Gorga family feud runs deeper than sisters-in-law who don't see eye-to-eye as Teresa's elderly parents barely have a relationship with their only son as a result of Melissa's alleged scheming and desperate famewhoring.
Here at RT, our job is to snark on all things reality television, be it stars, shows, or just general gossip. I'm not going to lie…it can be a lot of fun, and usually the people, programs, and situations make it super easy to write (hopefully) hilarious blog posts. However, when one of us is fortunate enough to get to interview one of the reality stars we normally joke about, it's a wake-up call…in a good way!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak with former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield about what has been going on in her life now that she is no longer involved with Bravo. I'll be honest, I was a tad bit nervous. It's not every day you get to have a conversation with someone you watched religiously on TV, especially when part of your job is to spew humor at her expense. I'm from a city in South Carolina just two hours from Atlanta, and the ATL was a favorite stomping ground in college and remains a shopping mecca for people in my neck of the woods. That said, RHOA and its stars have always held a special place in my heart. I'll likely never eat at RHOBH'sLisa Vanderpump's SUR (sigh), but it's really cool to see the women of Atlanta dining and shopping places I've actually been. Of course, when I graced those restaurants and boutiques I ate a side salad and purchased nada.
Sorry for digressing, but I felt the need to share part of the reason why I was so excited to chat with Sheree. She couldn't have been more professional, kind, and gracious. Sheree dished on her new jewelry line, her plans for the future, her gratitude towards her fans, and her thoughts on RHOA.
Last week I had the opportunity to speak to Marisa Zanuck, the new Housewife in training on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Marisa is definitely frank, outspoken, and unafraid to give her opinion – which means she'll be perfect for the show! Marisa joined the show as a friend of Kyle Richards and although she's nervous about the reaction to her debut she's excited to share her unconventional but fabulous BH life with viewers.
Marisa discussed her experience filming with the girls, and most importantly dished on who's a bitch, who's awesome, and who's exactly the same behind the scenes as they are on camera!
Below is an excerpt from our conversation.
Why Did You Decide To Join RHOBH?
"I decided to do the show because I thought it would be a lot of fun. I know Kyle really well. I thought it could open up some doors or maybe expose me to the world in a way that I wouldn't normally be exposed."
Do You Think Kyle Is Accurately Portrayed On The Show?
"Yes. 100 percent."

Casting speculation over Real Housewives of New Jersey has been rampant lately. Who's in, who's out, who's new, who's possibly returning after being dead for seasons soap opera style. Several sources have promised all the originals will be coming back, but that some new "friends" of Teresa Giudice are joining the cast!
The newest name to be tossed into the ring is Jennifer Dalton. Jennifer is a real estate agent at Sotheby's and is married to a prominent (and uber wealthy) New Jersey real estate developer and is reportedly a friend of both Teresa and Dina Manzo. She attended Teresa's Fabellini launch last season.
Jennifer has already been vetted by Bravo and appeared on Pregnant in Heels last season. And just who attended her baby shower which was filmed for the show? None other than Teresa andKim D!
This exclusive info makes us smile! Our favorite mustached Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan will no longer have to endure those awkward blind dates with baby-faced boys named Cheyenne! No more watching out for the 'To Catch a Predator' camera crew to spring out from around the corner! Our Reza has found a man and he sounds like a keeper!
Reza has been dating his new beau, Adam Neely, for more than a year now! Reza is a good secret keeper, y'all. Our source tells us that Reza and Adam met at the gym and have been going strong ever since.
