Nina was very thoughtful when discussing the show and had a lot of insightful comments on how the teams challenges worked for and against participants. And she also gave us a glimpse of what's to come for Nina Flowers now that reality TV is over.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
What is your reaction to being eliminated? Did the Teams aspect play a role in that?
"It definitely had something to do with it more than if we would have had to compete as individuals. Competing in teams is definitely tougher. It's not just about your performance, it's also about your team partner. We did the best we could as a team and it is what it is. I'm sad that I wasn't able to take it all the way to the end like I did on season one, but I'm OK with it. It was definitely a fulfilling experience and I feel happy I was a part of All Stars."
Yesterday I got the exciting opportunity to speak to Manila Luzon. As everybody knows I am an enormous fan of RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race. Manilla was funny, candid, and his larger-than-life, exuberant persona came through over the phone!
"I love talking about myself," Manila exclaimed when I thanked him for speaking with Reality Tea. And that about sums it up.
Why did you decide to return for All Stars Drag Race?
"The money, kinda! I didn't win my season and I heard they were giving away a lot more money on the all stars season. So, I was like 'Well I did pretty well last time so let me take my chances again.' You can kinda like go through a list of all the girls that had been there and be like, 'Well I think I could take her and I think I could take her too. You know I sent her home before, let's do this!' And I decided to go back on TV for my fans so they could see me."
In addition to be a Housewife (and housewife), Lea is also an author with her first novel coming soon, a serious philanthropist, and a skin care maven. Lea is frank, funny, and exactly as she comes across on the show – meaning she's very 'take me as I am' and very fun.

Ahhhh… there's a huge storm brewing off the coast. And things will get wild, crazy, and unpredictable. And that's just Real Housewives of Miami! Don't even get me started on Hurricane Sandy.
This week Reality Tea spoke with Lea Black about RHOM and we got some dirt on tonight's shocking episode where Adriana de Moura bitch slapsJoanna Krupasilly – all while wearing next to nothing mind you. Now I've never been to a lingerie party that didn't turn into a crazy mess (OK, so I've only been to one and it was from my college days and I didn't really wear lingerie) – and Lea agrees. Her take on what happened: "The drama's organic. I don't think any of the drama on this show is contrived drama. These girls they can't hold back when they want to!"
Lea said the slap is "just the beginning." Adding, "These girls, the dynamic between them is just… explosive."

Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak with Marysol Patton from Real Housewives of Miami. Marysol was very easy to talk to and friendly. We discussed how her work plays a big part of her persona on the show, her love of fashion, and how she handles her mom, MamaElsa, becoming the break out star.
Below is an excerpt from our conversation:
Q: What Interested You About Joining RHOM?
Marysol: "The first season, I didn't really know what we were doing. The second season I knew I was doing a Housewives show and I really enjoyed doing it with my mother the first time around, so I thought: 'How could I not?' And mom really wanted to do it. We have a lot of fun working together."
Hey y'all! It's time for your daily Teresa Giudice round-up! So in today's exhaustive report we'll discuss how Teresa is possibly getting a spinoff, how she never yanked Melissa Gorga's arm at a children's birthday party, and how she had a breakdown following the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. We've also got some EXCLUSIVES from our source on Teresa's possible spinoff and her brother-in-law, who seems like quite the scandalmonger.
Oh – and Jacqueline Laurita is all on the tweeter again (I swear she's the internet's number one twit) responding to Teresa'saccusations on Anderson Live yesterday. If you recall, Teresa accused Jacqueline of sending her harassing texts and mentioned she wanted to go to the cops because it gave her chills. Well if Teresa can go to the cops, Jacqueline can too! So HA!
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!
