Reality Tea

While we’re all still mourning the exit of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield, she’s ready to move along and take on the fashion world.

Sheree’s rep told Us Weekly yesterday that Sheree is working on her clothing line and revamping it into a line of fitness wear instead of the glamorous elegance that was She by Sheree.

“Now was the right time to head into other endeavors that she has on her plate. She’s going to be launching her fitness blog and revamp She by Sheree as an athletic clothing line rather than couture fashion.”

Couture fashion? There was a couture fashion line?  *cough cough*

Wiping the coffee off my chin and moving along.  It seems that Sheree’s clothing line played a part in her decision to leave RHOA. Sheree was feeling that the show played favorites with Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes and helped their endeavors along, while ignoring hers.

Sheree A friend told Radar Online: “Sheree was jealous of Kim and NeNe. She felt like she wasn’t getting as much attention, they all started together but it’s been unbalanced ever since.” Including the pimping of personal product lines on the show.  “They went out of their way to promote Kim’s wig line and gave her a spin-off for her wedding”, and they let NeNe film with both Glee and Celebrity Apprentice.  (and let’s not forget Kandi’s toy line!) Meanwhile, they spun Sheree’s clothing line launch into a huge joke.  (Thank you, Bravo!)

“She launched a clothing line and they turned it into a joke about how bad the clothes are. She wants to be a fitness instructor and they didn’t even promote that. They didn’t encourage her like they did the other two. She is just not as exciting, she is not as ridiculous, so viewers don’t care as much.”

All that whining aside, it boils down to money! Duh! How else will Neverland be completed? Sheree walked after she was offered significantly less than the others for the upcoming season.

“She was not offered the same money as they were. To be offered less money was the final blow, they said take it or leave it – so she left.”

Speaking of salary, Kim Z was obviously offered plenty, because despite reports that NeNe supposedly demanded they fire her, Kim’s definitely in for the next season of crazy.

Kim took to Twitter yesterday to squash the rumors that she’d been giving her walking papers along with Sheree.

“Lmao…I WILL be back next season on RHOA …. Going to miss @IamSheree though!!! Its Media fakeout!! They always lie!”

There ya have it. Kim is In.

TELL US – ARE YOU DYING TO BUY A SHE BY SHESPORTS BRA? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL BE BACK NEXT SEASON? DO YOU THINK NENE TRIED TO HAVE HER FIRED?

We’re getting down there in numbers as far as this season’s American Idol is concerned.  Ryan Seacrest reveals that Wednesday’s show garnered 53 million votes, which is a record for the season.  The remaining seven perform a group number, and I have to say that these are not my favorite…although I do love Fox’s excessive use of balloons in the opening number.

After the necessary product placement for Ford, Ryan engages in witty banter with the final seven.  He asks Hollie about how last week’s save of Jessica has affected the relationships with the remaining singers.  She gives a politically correct answer before she and Joshua are called to the stage.  After Joshua’s two songs on Wednesday, JLo calls him “beautiful” while Randy Jackson touts him as one of the most gifted singers ever to grace the AI stage.  Steven Tyler believes Joshua climbed inside him…in a good way.

Hollie channeled Adele.  While the judges loved it, and I am no critic, I stand firm that it’s always a bad idea to try to recreate a song which is still popular…and sung by someone so revered in such a small amount of (American pop culture) time.   I loved her “Son of a Preacher Man” rendition, but I don’t think she can hold a candle to Adele, so she shouldn’t have even forced the comparison.  Jimmy is pulling for Joshua, while he thinks Hollie has improved.  Joshua is safe while Hollie finds herself the first in the bottom three.

Taylor Hicks crawls out of that bar I once saw him at in Birmingham to announce he’s got a Vegas tour in the works.  Sure you do…and I am a big fan of THicks.  He also introduces recent Idol winner Kris Allen who debuts a new mediocre song.  The next two up for results are Skylar and Elise.  Skylar rocked a country version of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and I think Gaga herself would be proud.  Her rendition of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” was just as impressive.  Elise is from my home state, so I am glad that she garnered love from JLo and Steven Tyler...but I am not her biggest fan.  Loved Skylar, liked Elise in a “I hate people get voted off this show” sort of way.  Ryan informs Elise that she must join Hollie in the bottom three.

Can anyone REALLY “Keep up with the Kardashians“!?  If we shared and commented on every story about them in the news on a daily basis, we’d have to rename the site to Kardashian Tea.  In an effort to prevent any such name change, we’ll just touch on a few of the highlights of the day.

First up, Kris Humphries reacts to the news that Kim Kardashian wants to enter the political arena by running for mayor.  As you might guess, Kris reportedly finds the whole thing laughable, but not surprising. Honestly, are any of us ever surprised by Kim’s attempts at grabbing headlines?

Radar Online’s source shared this week that “Kris was told about Kim’s plans to become mayor of Glendale as it was making news yesterday. He doesn’t watch any of the Kardashian reality shows on E!, but he is telling his friends that he isn’t surprised that Kim said that because he feels there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do as she is so publicity hungry. It’s just ridiculous and sad to him that Kim is so fixated on fame and celebrity. There is no way that Kim would ever move to Glendale though, she complained whenever she had to stay at Kris’ condominium in Hoboken, New Jersey. Kim said that Hoboken wasn’t exciting enough for her.”

Kris also joked that if Kim can land a job as mayor, that he has a shot at the White House.

Humphries, please don’t give Kris Jenner any ideas.  You know she’s punching out campaign buttons for her Kimmie as we speak and would gladly shift gears to running her presidential campaign.

Moving on!  The media can’t seem to make up its mind on Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.  One day they’re pregnant and the next, they’re not having sex and heading for divorce!

First up, a source tells Us Weekly that Lamar’s father was full of B.S. with his claims that Khloe was pregnant.  It’s supposedly a complete fabrication.

Khloe and Lamar are allegedly heading for a split, not a baby.  According to sources, the two are fighting constantly and aren’t even having sex, making conception a little impossible.

A source shared with Hollywood Life:  “They’re not having sex.  They’ve had a lot of blow-out fights that won’t be included on the show. She and Lamar are definitely headed toward divorce. They’ll be done by the end of the year.”

Khloe is also begging Lamar to go to counseling with her and promising that NO cameras will be involved in the sessions.

Why is it when things get REAL, the “reality” TV stars suddenly don’t want cameras around?

And finally, some NBA “experts” weigh in and state the obvious.  Lamar needs to drop the reality show drama and focus on playing the game if he plans to continue his career in pro basketball.  “If Lamar wants to get back in the game, he needs to keep working out.  He needs to lose every distraction and focus on getting back the sixth man award.”

What do you think Lamar will choose? Basketball or a big glass of Kardashian Kool-Aid?

Khloe tried to squash the divorce rumors by sharing a picture of her having dinner with her man.  Nothing says “we’re still in love” more than a strategy dinner meeting with the Pimpmomager.

TELL US – WOULD YOU VOTE FOR KIM? KRIS? WHAT WILL THE KARDASHIANS DO NEXT FOR A HEADLINE? DO YOU THINK LAMAR AND KHLOE WILL MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE YEAR WITH THEIR MARRIAGE IN TACT?

Last season Real Housewives of Miami was widely panned for being completely boring. Bravo apparently heeded the advice of viewers and decided to spice things up to jalapeno levels! After firing two castmembers and reportedly signing on Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Lisa Hochstein – things are getting crazy down in Miami. So much so that the CBS Miami reports there was quite the altercation at a recent fashion show!

At the show, which was hosted by shoe designer Lisa Pliner at the home she shares with her husband Donald J. Pliner, the ladies of Bravo behaved every way but civilized – per their contract stipulation! Apparently, things got heated with drag queen/emcee Elaine Lancaster started harassing Marysol Patton for her overly puffed face over an issue they had years ago and the two got into it! Marysol couldn’t take the heat and became very emotional, causing a scene and threatening to quit the show, according to the Miami Herald Blog!

A hysterical Marysol was overheard freaking out to Bravo producers and threatening to walk out, before a producer reminded her about that iron-clad contract she signed! When party-goers noticed the drama, Marysol pulled it together and insisted all was fine, but she needed to get back to work.

Speaking out about the event, Elaine Lancaster claims it was no big deal; chalking it up to “tension” and “dealing with a bunch of catty women and egos.” Laughing it off, she added, “In fact, I try to emulate the best that women have, unfortunately, that’s a bad quality that some women have.”

Lea Black told reporters she had no idea what the ruckus was about, but it didn’t spoil anyone’s good time. “I think there was a little conflict among a few girls that maybe they could have handled it at another time, at another place but it happened here.” And indeed, it wouldn’t be a Housewives franchise without some inappropriately timed and placed drama, would it?

Moving on, newbie Housewife Joanna has decided she is something of an anti-fur advocate. First, she led a protest against the Kardashian owned DASH boutique, which appeared to be Lisa and a couple of her girlfriends staging an event for the paparazzi before grabbing some lunch. Whatever the case, it seems she nabbed PETA’s attention and now the animal-rights group has unleashed her as their newest spokesmodel.

The new campaign features a topless Joanna sporting a halo, angel wings, and a cross. It’s classy, of that I can assure you! The advertisement is supposed to help you remember to rescue animals as she is also standing (floating?) on the heads of several small dogs with the caption: “Always adopt, never buy.”  In another photo she is snuggling a yorkie to her naked chest.

“We’re spreading the word that breeding your dog or cat isn’t the way to go,” Joanna explained to the New Times. “Somebody needs to put their foot down and stop this breeding and these hideous puppy mills. Dogs’re [sic] in these little tiny cages for life. It makes me so angry, and if our government doesn’t do anything about it, I have to.”

Well, ok – I’m not one to take away from a good cause. Oh, what am I saying – I’ll snark on anything. The photos of Joanna saving animals is below. Too bad no one told her she should save herself the embarrassment of participating in a reality show!

THOUGHTS ON THE RHOM DRAMA? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE SECOND SEASON? THOUGHTS ON JOANNA’S PETA CAMPAIGN?

Oh, Basketball Wives so much drama it’s hard to imagine there’s more to come! On last Monday’s episode, viewers watched the slap heard round VH1 as Jennifer Williams was hit in the face by former bestie Evelyn Lozada‘s assistant Nia Crooks. Well, big mistake Nia, because Jenn is mad – suing mad! Really – where did Evelyn find this so-called assistant?!

Taking to her blog, titled “Seeking Justice,” Jennifer walks through the emotions associated with that day, and why she feels Nia deserves to be hauled into court! Jennifer believes Nia was motivated by a quest for fame – something she has in common with her boss! “On my show some of these women take pride in showing their ass in the most compromising way.  These females have a point to prove and will do or say anything to be a ‘reality show star,’” Jennifer seethes.

“Fame is a powerful drug and some will go any length to achieve it.  I am a grown woman and I have never had to fight someone to prove my point, I use my vocabulary and brain for that.  Mature woman should be able to communicate their differences without violence.  Using your hands to express yourself is absolutely WACK!!!”

As for the day in question, Jennifer had no intention of getting into an argument with anyone, and was very surprised by what transpired. “The assistant/gofer decided to be in full action with her monkey see monkey do self as she snuck a slap from behind.  You are a coward if you catch me off guard while sitting down and not to mention a bully!;” Jennifer recounts

“Then the president of the NON Factor T-shirt Enterprise (HA! HAHA!) thought that jumping across the table like a demon would be a good look for the young women in America that watch the show. The horses racing around the track were more civilized than some of the woman with me in the presidential suite that day. I swear I still don’t understand why someone would want to act so ridiculous on national television but I guess some will do anything for fame.” Dang, I love when Jenn gets feisty and mad!

The undisputed star of Mob Wives, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, will star in her very own spin-off this summer! Not taking any chances with a cheesy title, the network has simply titled her new show, after her nickname, Big Ang, and has ordered 10 episodes of following the most fascinating of the wives.

The press release described it as follows:

“Big Ang” will give viewers a glimpse into the life of one of reality TV’s most over-the-top and loveable characters. We’ll tag along as she hangs out with her family and friends, spends time at her increasingly popular Staten Island bar, The Drunken Monkey, and even hangs out with ‘da wise guys.’And yes her longtime friends from the original “Mob Wives” series will visit from time to time as will her loveable canine sidekick Little Louie.”

Dogs, alcohol, and lovable criminals? Sounds awesome! One of the VH1 suits describes Big Ang as “the definition of authentic.” Hear that, Kelly Bensimon?

In other Mob Wives news, show creater Jennifer Graziano responded to the recent revelation that her brother-in-law Junior Pagan was working as a FBI informant. On the VH1 blog, she says that she should have known something was up when he claimed he didn’t care how being on the show would ruin his reputation on the street.

She says VH1 asked if she wanted to stop production on the show, but she decided to keep going. It has created problems in her family.

“He used to tell me that he was my brother. And, it turns out, he didn’t care about me — and he sure didn’t care about Renee.”

TELL US — WILL YOU WATCH BIG ANG’S SPIN OFF? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JUNIOR’S ROLE AS AN INFORMANT?

After Model Jay was sent packing last week, the division between the men and the women was as evident as ever on last night’s SurvivorTroyzan knows he’s likely next on the chopping block.  He gets in a verbal altercation with Alicia after Christina didn’t keep her word to him.  From here on out, it’s Troyzan versus the world!

Troyzan is so peeved, and he likens the women to gold-digging divorcees.  He perks up considerably when he finds cash in the tree-mail.  The tribe learns that they will be able to use their money at an auction.  Each teammate has $500, and each bid must be in $20 increments.  Tribe members may not pool their money.  Jeff Probst recommends that if someone sees something they like, they should bid immediately as the auction could end at any time.

The first items up for bid are some frosted donuts and iced coffee.  For a mere $160, Chelsea wins it.  Kat starts the bidding for chips, guacamole, and a margarita at one hundred smackers.  She and Sabrina get into a bidding war, with Sabrina takes a long swig of that margarita for the low price of four hundred dollars.  A protein shake and some bananas are next…Lief wins after again bidding against Kat.  I think she just wants to buy something, regardless of what it is.  Alicia bids $20 for a shower with shampoo and a toothbrush, but Kim takes it for forty.  The tribe watches as she slips out of her skivvies and starts brushing her teeth.

Christina bids $40 on a BLT with an iced tea.  Kat immediately counters with one hundred dollars.  I am really starting to get the feeling she doesn’t know how this works.  She ends up paying $180 for the sandwich.  A hot ticket item is next—peanut butter and chocolate.  Kim leaves her shower, covered in soap, to outbid Alicia.  She snacks on her peanut butter from the shower.  Everyone gets teary when Jeff announces a letter from home is up next.  I bet Sabrina is second guessing her $400 tequila shot right about now.  Alicia opens and closes the bidding with all her money.  I guess she grew a heart when Colton left!  Everyone who has their full pot can purchase their letter.  Tarzan can barely talk when he goes to retrieve his letter.
