Reality Tea

Last night’s Basketball Wives was exactly everything we’ve come to expect from this formulaic season.  Ladies gossip, ladies lunch, ladies gossiping and lunching promise to “cut a b*tch” if they ever see said B again, other ladies don’t think it’s a good idea for a group gathering, yet, a group gathering is planned.  Mayhem ensues right as the show’s hour comes to an end.  Lather, rinse, repeat for a season…

Tami Roman continues her deep conversation with her mother.  Her mother is very emotional, and she admits that she too was molested as a child and she’s been going to therapy as well to work through her issues.  The pair seems have a breakthrough which ends in hugs and tears.

Royce Reed is thrilled that Dezmon Briscoe, her NFL playing beau from Tampa Bay, is visiting in Miami.  She immediately begins grilling him about his initial meeting with her father.  I can’t tell if Dezmon is flattered or scared when she begins to compare their relationship to her parents’ forty plus year marriage.  He admits that he is deeply in love, but he also has a lot of “we’re going with the flow” talk.

Tami is excited that Shaunie O’Neal is in visiting because it gives her the opportunity dish on Kenya Bell’s music video.  Tami is disappointed that Kenya didn’t stick up for herself, but she also wishes Kenya could see the importance of listening to constructive criticism.  Both women do a spot-on interpretation on Jenn Williams, who was uncomfortable at the video screening, and it segues into how all the women will behave when they head to the horse races.  Last year, Tami had her own screaming match at the track, so she’s curious to see if they ladies can act maturely.  Sure.  Tami is also concerned, in light of Jenn and Royce’s new truce, if Jenn will change her tune towards Royce if she makes up with Evelyn Lozada.

Evelyn meets with her friend/assistant Nia who also used to be close with Jenn.  Nia is upset that someone she was such good friends with can now pretend like she doesn’t even know her.   Evelyn feels badly that Jenn has hurt Nia’s feelings so badly.  Evelyn vows that is she is around when Nia wants to confront Jenn, she is going to stay out it.  Yeah, I can’t wait to see that happen.

Perhaps, the Bravo producers are just as sick of the excessive housewives drama and reality star train wrecks as the viewers are.  TMZ is reporting that while the network’s head honchos are not straying from the franchise that skyrocketed its viewership, it is going in a different, more Godly direction.

Sources tell the site that the new series will showcase “accomplished and upscale women in the Calabasas area who have fabulous lives, are very social, are involved in the community, but also have a very deep commitment to their faith.”  Oh gracious…isn’t this where the Kardashians live?  Please ladies, no need to apply!  That goes for you too, Shanna Moakler!

TheChristianPost.com elaborates, hoping the show isn’t just reality television’s answer to ABC’s new hit GCB, which showcases Bravo-esque caricatures, as they practice anything but what they preach.  Some critics believe that the scripted dramedy mocks the Christian faith, and they hope that this Calabasas housewives spin-off isn’t Bravo’s way of doing the same.

The site continues, stating that the “franchise typically follows the lives of elite housewives who are often seen flashing designer goods, indulging in exorbitant shopping sprees, and promoting cattiness which many would argue is far from the core values of the Christian faith.”

After all, the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County already have a self-proclaimed Jesus Barbie, who gets more than her fair share of backlash for citing her morals before trashing a cast mate.  And I don’t have to tell you that not only is that not considered very “Christian,” it’s also not considered very nice.

Week five on Dancing with the Stars was Latin Week.  The contestants stepped up their game this week.  Some teams hit it out of the park, while others fall flat.

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson are up first, dancing the samba.  Jaleel’s abs alone deserve some sort of trophy.  Len is overjoyed at their rhythm.  Up next is Melissa Gilbert and Maks doing the salsa.  It’s still not clear exactly how severe Melissa’s injuries were last week.  During their dance, they’re doing several moves that look rough on her head and neck.  Maks hints that the injuries were exaggerated last week.  To me, Melissa seems as awkward as Jack Wagner was on the dance floor.  Bruno tells her to go with it, but reminds her again that she needs to show more control. Carrie Ann gives her credit for her increased confidence from week one.  The judges give them a 21.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough bring the heat again this week with their salsa.  In rehearsal, Maria face plants during a move where she’s coming through Derek’s legs. She freezes there and is upset because she’s expecting that she’s a bloody mess, but there’s nary a scratch on her. After their dance,  Carrie Ann declares that their kiss was too much.  It should be about what you don’t show. And Len isn’t impressed with Derek taking his shirt off.  It felt forced.

Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas dance a hot Argentine tango.  Len says it had beauty and it was bittersweet.  Bruno loved the choreography.  They award them the highest score of the night so far: a 29.

Karina Smirnoff and Gavin DeGraw pick the samba.  Len dubs it a ‘Shamba’. Ouch.  They’re given the lowest score of the night: 19.  Unless the voters light up the phone lines, I think these two are doomed tomorrow night.

William Levy and Cheryl Burke do the tango and it’s hot and perfect.  Carrie Ann needs a bucket of ice after their dance, calling William the Latin dancing James Bond.   They tie Katherine and Mark’s score of  29.

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus do a sweet samba and the judges praise her stage presence. 

Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower knock it out of the park, as do Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd with their Argentine tango. Donald says he analyzes each dance like a football play.  Len praises them for their lifts and Bruno gushes about the sexy build up of their dance.

So, last night was the first segment of the so-called “epic” Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. I have to admit, reunions are so hard to recap, because really I can barely decipher what the women are talking about and I usually have to watch on closed captioning; A) because there’s too much screaming and B) because I can never grasp the she said-from-she said through the screaming – particularly where NeNe Leakes is involved. That being said, NeNe’s slamming of Sheree Whitfield was epic indeed! The theme of last night’s show-down was apparently “finances,” specifically who has them and who doesn’t. And does Sheree really have several storage units full of furniture or did she steal that storyline from Kim?

Before we start recapping anything, let’s discuss my personal most shocking moment of last night’s spectacle. Sheree Whitfield of She by Shebroke announced that She by Sheree—her failed clothing experiment, that consisted of a fashion show with no clothes and the owing of $30,000 to Dwight Eubanks for photocopies—is staging a revival. As in, She by Sheree is not dead, but merely on hiatus and we can expect more where that came from. Is she serious? She by Sheree?! As in, worse clothes than Alexis Couture! As in, NO ONE ON THIS EARTH is buying them. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let’s commence with this recap, shall we…

Last night opened with a fight to end all fights: do former strippers have the right to be disgusted by dildos? Are all former strippers supposed to be ok with the usage and discussion of dildos, ding-a-lings, and vajayjays? Are these women really and truly adults or is this a ruse Andy Cohen is attempting to fool us with before bringing out the real adult women?

After just six weeks on the air, we bid farewell to the Shahs of Sunset! Last night’s episode had its fair share of personal growth, bad blind dates, and varied levels of douchiness.  (We’re looking at you, Sammy Younai)

Mike Shouhed and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi head out together for a morning workout.  GG is apparently new to this exercise thing and leaves all of her jewelry on while attempting an intense workout.  When she’s finished, GG looks a little sweaty in her (nearly falling off every three seconds) jogging pants, yet her eye makeup is perfectly in tact.

Mike lets GG know that the two of them will never get together, despite the fact that he thinks she’d be a great catch for someone (once she gets her anger issues in check).  She’s determined to learn how to chill out and let things slide.  GG reveals that she hasn’t been on a date in five years.

Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid spend some time talking about their recent trip to NYC to see Reza’s dad.  Reza says the situation with his dad has helped him to grow and he isn’t taking crap from anyone.  Reza decides that since he’s found peace with his father, MJ should confront her mom, Vida.  Reza shares that MJ’s mom has treated her terribly the entire time that he’s known her and even goes so far as to say that he doesn’t think Vida loves MJ.  MJ doesn’t take that last bit very well and is irritated with Reza’s opinion.  I was feeling Reza’s friendship for MJ until he started ripping on Vida for constantly being critical of MJ’s weight and more.  Just two episodes ago MJ told us that Reza has given her hell about her weight for YEARS.  Pot meet kettle.

Taylor Armstrong was shocked to learn that she’s going to be slowly phased out in the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Taylor is so distraught over being written out of the show that she’s reportedly been hitting the bottle pretty hard.  Taylor’s friends are concerned and are hoping she’ll head to rehab to get some help.

A source tells Radar Online: “Taylor has been relying on alcohol to cope with the suicide of her husband, Russell, and the stress of raising a child as a single mother. Viewers got a glimpse of her drinking last season on the show when she had an epic meltdown at Camille [Grammer's] Aspen mansion. Taylor got so intoxicated that she climbed into her suitcase. It was very scary for all of the ladies to witness.  And that was before Russell killed himself. The fellow Housewives feel that Taylor needs to go to rehab to learn how to cope with the pressures of life without alcohol or any other substances. Taylor is in denial that she has a problem with booze. One of the reasons is why is because she is a paid spokesperson for Ciroc vodka. She earns about $100 thousand a year from that endorsement deal, and she is afraid that if she goes to rehab they will drop her.”

Producers have supposedly decided that fans of the show aren’t feeling connected to Taylor, especially after she wrote the book about suffering abuse at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong.  They’re also afraid that Taylor will be too dull for this season without the marriage drama.

“Everyone’s concerned that without the marriage drama she’s just going to come across as dull. It’s unlikely that she’s going to be able to start publicly dating again so soon after Russell’s death and with her money troubles she’s unlikely to be leading any kind of aspirational lifestyle, so she’s basically not really going to have any interesting hook.”

Ouch. Thoughts?

TELL US – DO YOU THINK TAYLOR SHOULD HEAD TO REHAB? DO YOU THINK IT’S JUST A WAY TO SPICE UP HER STORYLINE THIS SEASON?

On last night’s Celebrity Apprentice, both teams had to run improvisational puppet shows. Product placement department was really asleep at the wheel this week, since there was no corporate sponsor constantly being complemented. Ivanka Trump could barely bring herself to say “the executives” in the boardroom.

Since all shows on television now air on Sunday night, I’ll remind you that Lou Ferrigno was fired last week for only giving half of his usual “110%.” Lisa and Dayana shuffle back into the boardroom, Clay Aiken makes a snarky comment, which Lisa immediately overreacted to. Lisa, the woman who makes her living making fun of others, can dish it but certainly can not take it.

On this week’s task, Lisa Lampanelli elects herself as project manager in an attempt to finally win something, and Clay is shuffled over to Forte. Nice work, producers! Paul Teutul decides to manage this task, which is kinda weird. Aubrey O’Day would have been a shoe-in. Her hair alone is practically its own puppet!

Someone must have had a talk with Aubrey about her dominating ways because she decides to take a step back and let Paul run the show. And, since this is a different universe, Arsenio Hall & Aubrey are cool with each other! See what happens after you call your teammate a “See you next Tuesday!” You become friends afterwards. Paul had an injury the day before they start preparing for the act, so he is basically useless. Both teams get a lot of training on this task, in both, actual improv and puppeteering. Teresa Giudice loves that the improv guys encourage not knowing what you’re talking about. Do I really have to write a joke here? You know what to do, commenters! Take this and run with it. You’ve been given a gift.
