Just hours after VH1 announced the addition of Daphne Wayans to the season 2 cast of Hollywood Exes, Daphne took the time to chat with us about reality TV, motherhood, her friendship with her ex, and to share just how well she knows her co-stars.
Preparing for the interview was challenging because there is so little known about Daphne! There were no prior DUI's, no dramatic details about bitter divorce proceedings, no child custody battles or crazy interviews to be found! A real rarity in this business. All we knew about Daphne is that she was previously married to actor Keenen Ivory Wayans and that they share five children together: Jolie, Nala, Keenen Jr, Bella and Daphne.
I kicked off by asking Daphne if there was any truth to the rumor that she was originally meant to be part of season 1. She did confirm this as truth; she was part of the initial pitch for the show, but she simply got cold feet and decided to sit season 1 on the sidelines. What changed her mind for season 2? "The product speaks for itself. It is exactly what I was hoping it would be and even more. She says that what we see is the real deal. "That's the truth of it, that's not PR, that's not anything else."
Trying to keep up with the lies of Real Housewives of New Jersey is like trying to play tag with a ghost. While everyone pretends they like each other one minute, they then claim to hate each other the next – who really knows what to think!
In a new report Reality Tea's source shares EXCLUSIVELY that things are very, very bad between the cast members and that things are getting worse and definitely beyond repair!
"Teresa [Giudice] is putting the boxing gloves back on. She is all about keeping her cool and throwing digs at the cast. She cannot stand any of them. She will NEVER let them see her fall," our source reveals.
And allegedly, "Teresa gloats at the fact Melissa [Gorga] is nothing more than a cast member. She isn't the break out star she thought she would be. Teresa feels that Melissa is just one big joke. Teresa is out and about at appearances and book signings and Melissa is singing at Great Adventure." Ouch!
Tonight is an all-new episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey. We’ve been hearing for weeks about Joe Giudice‘s explosive phone call when he is captured on film referring toTeresa Giudice as his “bitch wife” among other things. Well, tonight it finally makes it on air!
Teresa recently appeared on the cover of In Touch Weekly, where she vowed to leave Joe if he was caught cheating and claimed Le Juicy one is “sorry” for his actions. Anyone see any pigs flying lately? Oh yeah… me either!
Well Reality Tea’s source tell us EXCLUSIVELY that Joe’s is anything but sowry and is tired of being second fiddle to Teresa’s RHONJ success. Those Giudices really make a lot of insincere apologies, don’t they?

Last week I spoke with Sheree Fletcher from Hollywood Exes. Hot on the heels of a drama-filled episode where Sheree experienced some conflict with Jessica Canseco, we talked about how the cast maintains true friendships and what her experiences with both reality TV and being thrust into the public eye have been. I also spoke to Sheree about merging her strong religious beliefs with reality television.
Sheree was so gracious and down-to-earth. She was open-minded, friendly, and we had an earnest conversation about her experiences with the show, the other women, and building her brand Whoop Ash.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
Sheree shares that her motivation for joining the show was an appreciation of the concept. “I liked what the producers were trying to do. The focus was on the women; I wouldn’t have been a part of a show that focused on my ex.”
From the get-go the premise was to focus on a group of women who were once married to “high profile” men and had common experiences. “They wanted to put together a sorority of sorts where women could come together and share their experiences and empower and support one another,” Sheree explains.

Joe Giudice's day in court has finally come – again. In the latest development in his fraudulent license case, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has elected to REJECT the district attorney's offer for a plea bargain; opting instead to go to trial!
Tom Murro of Fox News gave Reality Tea an EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes report on what happened during Joe's court hearing.
"Joe showed up sans Teresa [Giudice] at the Passaic County Courthouse, and late for court today for the charge of obtaining a drivers license in his brothers name," Tom reveals. Late as only a Giudice could be!

All the talk of Teresa Giudice getting a spinoff seems to be unnecessary as the entire plot of Real Housewives of New Jersey revolves around her. For once I don’t believe Teresa is delusional – I mean, everybody is always talking about her, amirite?
Teresa‘s latest Bravo blog addresses former friend turned stalker/nemesis Caroline Manzo‘s crazy comments about Teresa’s marriage and the passive aggressive comments she believes Kathy Wakile made about her cookbook. Hang on, you’re in for a loooong RHONJ post!
“You’d think by now I’d be used to everyone on the show talking about me non-stop every single episode, but I’ll admit I was shocked by Caroline’s comment about my marriage,” Teresa begins.
“Not because I don’t expect her to say nasty things about me and to constantly judge of me — that’s what she does. To quote Audriana‘s favorite movie right now, The Little Mermaid: ‘It’s what she lives for.’ (Caroline does remind me of Ursula, come to think of it…) What shocked me is her hypocrisy.”
Yesterday it was reported that Imani Showalter was fired from Basketball Wives: LA after she was a no-show at new cast member Brooke Bailey‘s birthday party, which was attended by all the other ladies. VH1 actually started the rumor by speculating whether or not Imani would return on their blog about Brooke’s party.
Well in an EXCLUSIVE, Reality Tea has been told that not only is Imani definitely returning next season, but there’s a second new lady joining the cast!
Tonight, dear readers, you're in for a treat – it's the motherload of Real Housewives of New Jersey posts! We've got it all, but most of all we've got salacious and gory EXCLUSIVES about whose living a lie on national TV. That would be all of them. Oh, we've also got more Caroline Manzo acting like a bulldog. It wouldn't be RHONJ without that!
First up, last week Melissa Gorga hosted a beautiful birthday party for her daughter Antonia. We all saw Melissa getting beautified for a six-year-old's birthday party and then strapping on her best hoochie heels. Melissa admitted that her daughter's parties are always a "lavish" affair.
Are they lavish enough for Kennedy Caroline Armstrong? Likely not. Watching from home, you know Kennedy was thinking "That bitch can't touch me. I had a mother effing horse."
Anyway, our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Melissa only throws parties for her daughter and that her Joe Gorga's parents weren't even invited to the party! Is that because it wasn't anywhere near Antonia's real birthday?
"Antonia's party was just for the cameras," our source shares. "Melissa never throws her kids big parties. Her boys have never even had a birthday party. The baby had no 1st birthday and no 2nd birthday party! Not even cake at the house," our source assures us.
