Another milestone for Reality Tea as two writers have finally been hired following an intensive search that began a month ago.

Reality Tea continues to grow with March being our biggest month yet. Last month, we received over 729,000 unique visitors with over 3,055,000 page views. In other words, holy moly!

In other to continue to keep the site growing and most importantly, so I can stop carrying my laptop with me to people’s weddings, family outings, & events a la Vicki Gunvalson stop having to work 365 days a year, it was the right time to get some new blood!

Following an applicant pool of over 280 interested writers, I was able to narrow it down to two phenomenal writers! Trust me folks, they are goooood. Below are the bios of the new assistant writer Lauren Rounsville and contributor Mary McClelland -

Lauren – Lauren is an attorney living in South Carolina who has been captivated by all things Beverly Hills, Bravo and Bieber. She loves 80’s sitoms (Benson, Silver Spoons, Magnum P.I.), 90’s country music (the cheesier the better) and the accessibility of pop culture in the (now not so new) millennium. When she’s not reading the latest tabloids, this former first grade teacher loves trying new food, hunting down designer bargains, watching college football, listening to Waylon Jennings, and patiently waiting for Andy Cohen to realize she’s his new best friend, second only to Ben Weiner. Oh, and drinking cheap wine. Duh.

Mary – Mary is an avid collector of vintage clothes, lover of vertiginous shoes, reader of delightful books, and a possessor of a degree in Sociology – the evidence of which now sits sadly and uselessly in a box in her basement. She became an apostate of bitchy gossip from an early age – waiting for her mother’s trips to the grocery store so she could read US Weekly with glee. Other than that she is a mama to a little boy and a basset hound named Theodore Lovely.

Lauren & Mary will begin reporting to duty tomorrow and from here on out, there will be a new byline on top of each story letting you know the author. I will continue to write majority of the stories for the blog.

And in the comments section of this post, please let us know what shows you would like us to cover, what types of stories you would love to see or any other amazing ideas you might have for the future of this blog. Thank you and I can assure you the best is yet to come for Reality Tea :)RT.

A huge episode of Million Dollar Listing will air tonight on Bravo, during which real estate agent Josh Flagg will officially come out as being gay.

While all of the stars on the show, including former cast member Chad Rodgers, had allowed their love lives to be a part of the show, Josh was the only one to keep that part of his life private.

Well, that all changes tonight as Josh makes the revelation both on the show and in his new memoir Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream, which also comes out today.

According to Josh, 25, he is very pleased with the way he chose to come out. “You know my sexuality does not define me, it is not who I am, but rather it is part of me, and I did not ever want people to think of me as “the gay real estate guy,” I did not want that to be the only demographic that was watching me on TV or the only demographic to associate with me,” said Josh in an interview with San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.

“I am very glad I did things the way I did because I feel I eased people into it and I made people comfortable with ME, and then kind of just dropped the fact that I like guys instead of girls. Many people knew, many had no idea,” he added.

And how does Josh feel about his costar Madison Hildebrand, who also came out on the show, beating him to the punch? “Madison did not beat me to the punch. Madison just decided to come out on national television before I did, but as far as I know, I was out to the people I wanted to be out to well before Madison was. At the rate we are going, we might have to change the title of the show to “Two Homos and the Straight Dude.”” joked Josh adding that though he respects Madison’s approach, he chose to take “a different approach, a more subtle approach, and I kind of like the way Bravo did it … slowly revealing my life, because for the most part no one knows anything about my life other than what they can read on the Internet or what they see on the show with my family, but my private life was always kind of a mystery.”

Josh also reveals that his fellow castmate Josh Altman has been supportive. “He is a great guy and a good friend of mine and we have gotten closer since filming the show,” said Josh. “We do some business together and we get along real well. I have nothing bad to say about Josh Altman whatsoever.”

Josh is currently in a relationship with long term boyfriend Colton Thorn. Photos of Josh and Colton below. MDL airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. A preview clip is below -

Well, a writer is needed for Reality Tea.

As the blog continues to grow, I would like to cover more stories and more shows. The writing position will be mostly to cover recaps for all the Housewives series, as well as other shows such as Top Chef, Survivor, Amazing Race, American Idol, etc.

This is for serious writers only. You should love reality television, be witty and very funny — well at least when it comes to your writing.

This will be a part time position and a salaried job. The working hours will be around 10 hours a week, and the hours will be pretty flexible.

If you’re interested, please shoot an email to Realitytea@yahoo.com with the heading ‘Writing Position’ by the end of Sunday, March 13. If you have previous writings relating to reality television, please feel free to include that. If not, that is aboslutely fine as well. If you had previously sent an email about the writing position and received a reply, please do not apply again. Further details will be sent to all those interested on Monday. Thank you!

Another day, another Pretty Wild star checking into rehab.

The latest is 20-year-old Tess Taylor, who TMZ is reporting has checked into rehab just a month after her younger sister Alexis Neiers was sentenced to spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program for heroin possession.

Tess’s enabler mother, Andrea Arlington, tells TMZ, “Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis Neiers and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess Taylor contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help.”

Andrea adds that Tess weighed a mere 93 pounds at the time she decided to seek help for her Opiate addiction. Opiates include Oxycodone, Methadone and Heroin.

Tess is reportedly planing to stay at the rehab center for 12 months. Safe to say we will not be getting a second season of Pretty Wild anytime soon on the E! network.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TESS GOING TO REHAB?

UPDATE - Tess’s mom Andrea released the statement below and has also responded to some questions in the comments section -

It was decided by our family that we should be willing to be examples and not hide our imperfections, but to fully be real and tell the truth. We want others dealing with this addiction to feel courageous enough to talk about it with their families and get help before it is too late. Making all these judgmental comments are hurtful toward this goal. To stand up as individuals and as a family, who are blessed to have an opportunity to shed light on this epidemic and educate others, instead of hiding behind closed doors and pretending we are perfect is a gift to our society in the long run and that is why we collectively decided to be real. If you feel otherwise, please educate yourself about the most important issue here and that is helping others. We are in a position to make it right and good for people to get help instead of hiding in shame. I am grateful to be on the slaughtering block, if by being willing to be vulnerable, I can save even one life.”

We hate blind items with a passion, that is unless of course they are pretty darn easy to figure out. With that said, bringing you a new blind item today. Enjoy -

“Which Bravo Housewives teen, who very recently made headlines for all the wrong reasons, might soon be in the headlines once again? As this morning, Reality Tea received a number of classless photos showing the teen smoking, drinking alcohol and some other pics showing the teen clearly high out of their mind. After much contemplation, we decided not to publish the photos which were offered to us for free. But don’t be surprised if the photos end up on another blog or national magazine any day now as our source revealed they planned on giving them to another site. And oh yeah, there are also videos to go with the photos.”

If another blog/website does decide to publish them, then we will definitely post them on here via that blog or site. With that said, feel free to take your guesses below.

Alexis Neiers

A major break for E! reality star Alexis Neiers.

Following her arrest on Dec. 1 for possession of heroin, the Pretty Wild star was in court yesterday during which she admitted violating her probation terms. If you recall, Alexis, 19, was placed on probation earlier this year for burglarizing Orlando Bloom’s house after serving a 1 month sentence.

Alexis was however able to dodge a bullet as a L.A. County Superior Court judge ordered her to spend one year in a drug treatment program instead of jail.

According to TMZ, Alexis will spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program, with the judge warning her this was the “last time we’re going to have this conversation.”
