Reality Tea

 million-dollar-listing-finale (3)

He’s baaaack! On last night’s season finale of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, viewers were finally treated with the return of Malibu Madison Hildebrand. Bravo producers had teased this early on in the season but decided to hold out until the very end. And it’s a good thing. He was just the ray of sunshine needed to wrap things up after last week’s hankyfest. But if you blinked, you may have missed him fraternizing with the Brits!

Speaking of…James Harris and David Parnes, aspiring to expand their business along the California coastline, are enlisted by client, Christine, to sell her home in Laguna Beach. However, they are greeted with a chilly reception from the local agents at their open house. One broker in particular gets all up in their business and asks what they are doing there. Well, this is America and we have a right to free enterprise. Anywhere. Same as you do, lady. The Brits ‘shake it off, shake it off’ like Taylor Swift and joke that the shade they are getting is because of their accents and clothes. Not quite. But I get where the agents are coming from – they live and breathe Laguna Beach. This is their value add to potential buyers in the area. They are just being protective of their tightknit community. It would be no different if either of the Joshes encroached on their territory. But not as much for Madison who, looking quite refreshed, (don’t blink) stops by to take a look around.   The Brits would be wise to connect with him, the self-anointed ‘Beach Guy’, as he has done business there before and this type of clientele is his bread and butter.

Kim Richards is speaking out in an official statement released this afternoon via her rep.  Kim wants to explain the circumstances surrounding Kingsley’s attack on her niece, Alexia Umansky, aka Kyle Richards’ daughter.  

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shares, “First off let me start by saying the safety and welfare of my family means the world to me.  I love Alexia like she is my own child and have been in constant contact with my sister Kyle and niece Alexia.   The events that lead up to Kingsley biting Alexia resulted from the girls entering my bedroom after I already told them my room was off limits.  Alexia has been away from college for months and hasn’t seen Kingsley in a long time.  Kingsley is used to the home being full of children and since the kids have gone away, the house has become quiet.  While the two have been very close and friendly in the past, the dog has become very protective of me in the meantime.  When guests are over Kinglsey stays in my bedroom and has been given access to a special fenced in area in my backyard.  Anyone entering the house is made aware that the dog should not be bothered. ” 

dina manzo rhonj season 6 reunion look

Dina Manzo thought this season of Real Housewives Of New Jersey would be an opportunity to show off her zen, but yeah, this is reality TV. And since reality TV aims to bring the drama Bravo blindsided Dina by adding the sister-in-law she can’t stand, Jacqueline Laurita, to the cast at the tail-end of filming. Dina managed to avoid Jacqueline until Andy Cohen confronted her about family issues at the reunion. 

Dina and Jacqueline have already spent oodles and oodles of time telling us how they feel on twitter, through the haze of wine and cat hair, each of them accuses the other of lying. Unfortunately 140 characters (even when you tweet over and over again!) just isn’t enough. I do wish we could limit wine and delusion in the same manner we limit twitter type-age, although it’s usually user-abuse that causes the issues (i.e. tweeting constantly.).

claudia jordan RHOA season 7

Real Housewives has become synonymous with faux riches and bankruptcy! And some girls are going bust before they ever pretend to play rich on TV! Claudia Jordan just joined Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and she’s already dealt with a shady financial past! Which means that hopefully she has learned from her mistakes and won’t be repeating them! No amount of ‘Red Bottoms’ is worth a day in court!

In 2012 Claudia filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The former Celebrity Apprentice cast member admits that bad borrowing, coupled with loss of employment and a divorce put her into that mess. Well at least it wasn’t shoes! Or $100,000 worth of furniture…  “I definitely had money and lost it all and got it back, lost it all again and now I’m on the upswing,” Claudia admits. “I was a victim of some predatory loans.”

While a court order dismissed her bankruptcy after one month, Claudia says that her financial pitfall, on top of an annulment and Deal Or No Deal being canceled took her to a very dark place emotionally.

Jon Gosselin Couples Therapy

Jon Gosselin wins our Thirsty Thursday award this week. Jon, who is broke as a joke, told Kate Gosselin, whose reality TV career is on the upswing, that he’d be willing to go on Couples Therapy with her. What a kind soul. I’m sure he has only her best interests at heart.

“I would consider appearing on Couples Therapy with Kate,” said Jon. “We are divorced, but why can’t we co-parent? I was thinking Kate and I could do a televised sit-down with a doctor and work out our differences, because our kids are suffering. She’s still so angry at me.”

It’s divorce number 2 for Sheree Fletcher! The lady who made a name for herself as an A-List divorcee on Hollywood Exes, is about to become a celebrity divorcee once again! 

Sheree filed for divorce from second husband, former NFL-player turned preacher Terrell Fletcher. The couple has been separated since July and were living separate lives long before that. If you recall Terrell moved to San Diego to start his church after receiving the calling from God, while Sheree received the calling from reality TV and decided to stay in LA, near her friends, life, show, and son, Trey. Ultimately the couple, who married in 2007, couldn’t make it work.

It’s a good thing NeNe Leakes is getting off a sinking ship, because otherwise Kenya Moore might just make her walk the plank! Kenya announced today that she’s taking over and NeNe’s days as Real Housewives Of Atlanta‘s “Queen Bee” are done! 

Calling season 7 her “redemption season” Kenya assures us that myths will be dispelled and all the rumors of her s0-called horrible ways will trace back to villains with negative agendas! 

“This season shows me in a different light. A lot of the lies that were told about me come to light,” Kenya says. “There were a flurry of [lies]: I’ve been called an alcoholic, I’ve been called bi-polar, I’ve been called a man-stealer— there isn’t a name I have not been called on this show. This season just shows a very different side. And really the truth.”

Will the real Kenya Moore please stand up? I mean here we have personality #265 (one for each day of the year), the forgiving, gracious, and sweet-natured church lady who has Jesus on her side to fix it.

This season Real Housewives Of Atlanta is bringing a lot of changes, most prolifically the demotion of Porsha Williams Stewart Williams, who was demoted from the cast when Kenya Moore‘s Shade Lieutenant friend Claudia Jordan joined the cast, surgically implanted guns swinging, to cause drama!

Claudia is not holding back on the drama as she took on veteran NeNe Leakes while Kenya cheered “Yaaaaaas!” from the sidelines. The new ladies have to mark their turf, by digging in the story lines – much like cats scratching in a litter box!

Dropping some hints on this season is Executive Producer for RHOA, Carlos King. And by that I mean parroting the Bravo approved PR spin about how amazing the drama is for season 7. Hey – I’m riveted! Carlos is a big fan of Claudia joining the crew, because duh – she has like zero scruples about acting ratchet, so that makes for excellent TV. Hey – I’m riveted!
