Reality Tea

They say when it rains, it pours and unfortunately for the Kardashian family, it has been a-stormin for the past three weeks. Well, with the exception of Rob Kardashian!

Since Kim Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce three weeks ago, the family has experienced a public backlash like no other in addition to turmoil in the family due to the said backlash.

Fast forward to today and it doesn’t appear things will be looking up for Kimmie Kakes anytime soon. According to the upcoming issue of Life & Style magazine, out on news stands tomorrow, Kris Humphries aka Kim’s husband of 72 days, is now planning to sue her to the tune of $10 million!

“Kris has a legal team investigating his options,” an insider tells Life & Style. “He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”

Acc0rding to Life & Style, Kris, 26, is mostly worried about some explosive footage of him “bullying” Kim’s best friend Jonathan Cheban. “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality,” shares a pal of Kim. “Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”

The source close to Kim claims the “bullying” made her very upset. “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider tells Life & Style. “He’s the lowest of the low bullying someone like this.”

Kris has now reportedly retained lawyer Lee Hutton III and is trying his hardest to prevent his worst moments from being aired on TV.

However, Kris’ family and friends are coming to his defense maintaining that most of Kris’ appearance on Kourtney & Kim was scripted, including scenes in which he questions Jonathan’s sexuality. They also remain adamant that Kris is not homophobic. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, tells Life & Style. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”

Meanwhile, Hills alum and Dancing With The Stars contestant Kristin Cavallari is now taking some shots at the Kardashian family! Kristin graces the current issue of Life & Style magazine with a headline that reads: “Betrayed! Scott’s affair with Kristin.”

The article claims that while Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick were on a break two years ago (mind you this was even before Kourtney got pregnant) Scott and Kristin hooked up. The mag went on to claim Kourtney, reportedly friends with Kristin at the time, feels so betrayed and therefore banned Scott from stepping foot on the DWTS set this season due to Kristin being a contestant. And yes, that whole story sounds extremely ridiculous to us as well!

“Scott and Kristin hooked up in Las Vegas [in February 2009] during a time that he was on a break from Kourtney,” an insider told Life & Style. “Kourtney was furious. She and her sisters have called Kristin ‘the whore bag’ ever since.” Oh the nerve of any Kardashian calling anyone else a “whore bag!”

Well, Kristin not only denies the ridic report but also fires back at the Kardashians as she believes they leaked the story to the press in other to take some heat off Kimmie and the backlash she is receiving. Smart girl that Kristin!

“I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show [Kourtney & Kim Take New York] premiering next week. With everything that’s going on for Kim, I feel like they’re trying to take the heat off her,” Kristin said on The Billy Bush Show syndicated radio show.

Kristin continued, “When there’s a big story like that, they always call you and ask if you want to comment and clearly none of them denied it… It’s disrespectful to me and Jay [Cutler, Cavallari's ex-fiance who she just got back together with], and I think it just says a lot about their character.” Ouch!

Finally, even PETA is getting in on the Trash a Kardashian month as they recently launched a billboard campaign against Kimmie! Us Weekly reports that on the billboard, scheduled to go up in early December, a fur-clad Kimmie sits opposite a sad shot of baby foxes. “Kim: These Babies Miss Their Mother,” reads the sign. “Is She on Your Back?” A picture of the PETA billboard is below!

Meanwhile, Kim made another public appearance yesterday (what happened to staying out of the spotlight?) as she and her family were in the Dancing With The Stars audience to cheer for Rob. A picture of the Kardashian clan is below -

Bethenny Frankel has been the subject of constant controversy as of late; it seems every other day she is embroiled in some sort of issue causing a media tail-spin! Needless to say — it’s been quite a year for diet drink maven and wannabe mogul.

Bethenny has made no secret of her desire to leave reality TV behind in the hopes of landing her own talk show. Recent reports stated Mama Frankel had shot a pilot for her own show, but was having trouble hooking a network even going so far as to hire a coach to soften the abrasive, no-nonsense style that made her famous in the reality world.

The Bethenny Ever After star’s dreams of being the next Oprah were apparently closer than we all thought, as The Hollywood Reporter is revealing NBC was jonesing to pick up some new talk show blood and Bethenny made a short list of contenders that included Survior host Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake (formerly of talks show’s pasts, currently of Dancing With The Stars).

The Hollywood Reporter describes that launching a talk show is a precarious situation for a network with all the competition from already established shows, thus they must carefully weigh who will gain the most traction with viewers nationwide. Basically, a show must stay in a holding tank and be demoed across a variety of markets before it is “cleared” in the “three-quarters of the country” needed to garner a launch. Once it gets a “launch” a network will back it and air the show.

“If NBC stations pass on her Warner Bros. Telepictures’ show, the former Real Housewife of New York could find it difficult to get the clearances she needs to launch despite support from Ellen DeGeneres,” THR explains of Bethenny’s predicament.

Well, unfortunately for Bethenny it seems NBC made the decision to go with Jeff’s show instead, while Ricki’s show is headed for the Tribune group of stations that helped launch Anderson Cooper’s now popular talk show. “This shuffle is probably bad news for Frankel who must now struggle to find enough carriage to make a launch likely,” the article alleges. Currently there is no expected launch for Bethenny’s show as she is still waiting to be picked up by major networks.

And there is more bad news for the reality star resulting from continued scrutiny over the contents of her “all natural” Skinnygirl Margarita! The New York Post is reporting an expanded lawsuit from former fans of the product, taking issue with the label’s assertion that the cocktail is concocted using “100 percent blue agave tequila.”

Christopher Rapcinsky and Erin Baker, currently taking action against the brand, have amended their $10M class action lawsuit for having “falsely claimed the drink was ‘all natural’ with ‘no preservatives’.”

Upon further investigation into the tequila used to produce the beverage the duo discovered it was actually “a lower quality and purity tequila by-product called mixto — essentially a mash of tequila and some unknown additives (rarely organic) which may comprise as much as 49 percent of the final mixed liquor.” Blech. All-natural, say what?

The duo’s lawyer, Tom Mullaney stated: “100 percent blue agave is not stuff people mix.” Additionally, he says comparing the mix to pure tequila is like “comparing Thunderbird wine to a fine Chianti. They’re both wine, but very different.” I’ll let you wine connoisseurs argue the veracity of his statement, as I’m an $8 a bottle kind of a girl.

The suit isn’t entirely blaming Bethenny (who is not named as a defendant) for the misconceptions, as it notes the discrepancies began occurring after Beam Global acquired the brand and the label changed at some point to say the drink was made “with premium Blue Agave Tequila,” removing the “’100 percent’ reference,” which the suit claims is “highly misleading.”

“Only time and pretrial discovery will tell what was really in the ‘tequila’ that went into the phony ‘all-natural’ margarita. What is certain is the fact that consumers would not have purchased Skinnygirl Margarita had they known it was manufactured with inferior mix to tequila,” the suit insists.

Beam Global is fighting back calling the suit “frivolous” and defending the label’s claims that the cocktail is made with premium tequila. “We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail,” the company’s rebuttal stated.

Bethenny’s reps have declined to comment on this latest attack on her product and she has not confronted the controversy via Twitter, opting instead to promote more products in the Skinnygirl line-up. Perhaps all the drama surrounding Bethenny might have something to do with networks passing on her talk show?

THOUGHTS ON BETHENNY’S LATEST DILEMNAS? ARE YOU SURPRISED HER TALK SHOW HAS NOT BEEN PICKED UP – WOULD YOU WATCH? THOUGHTS ON THE LAWSUIT: FRIVOLOUS OR WITH MERIT?

John Salley’s teeth may be a tad whiter, his smile a bit wider and his demeanor even more subdued than normal, but there’s no mistaking his presence means that there is a Basketball Wives reunion in the works, this time L.A. style. He introduces the ladies, and apparently Gloria Govan and Jackie Christie missed the hair memo. Why Maylaysia, why? Your hair looks so good straight! I also have to give credit to a reader that commented in an earlier thread that Laura Govan looks like a long-lost member of the Jackson family. Spot on, Super Reality Junkie!

The first issue at hand is the season opening fight when Laura and Malaysia come to blows after repeated belittling and “hood-rat calling” on the part of Ms. Govan. I still love that Malaysia took off her shoes for the brawl. John recaps the fight, saying that Malaysia “pushed Jackie over like she only weighed a hundred pounds.” Oh no he didn’t! He questions Gloria who says she got her information regarding the tiff from none other than Jackie.

If you’re a fan of Watch What Happens Live, you’re in luck because Bravo has just announced the show will air five nights a week!

Yes – that’s right – five nights of Andy Cohen! Senor Cohen the quirky, silly, master manipulator Executive Vice President of Programming who is behind the Housewives franchises and shows such as, Top Chef will be expanding his late-night variety show to air Sunday through Thursday starting this January.

“It’s a new world and a whole lot of people are doing a lot of things at once,” Andy excitedly described the decision to expand. He was so excited he announced the new programming on last night’s show as his Mazel!

So why did Bravo decide to amp up WWHL’s air-time? According to data, Cohen et al garners more viewers than other late-night cable shows — including Chelsea Handler and Conan O’Brien! In fact, for female viewers aged 18-to-49, Andy’s show has “among the strongest ratings for late-night cable shows,” averaging about 1.2 million viewers with 720,000 being in the 18-49 year-old-age group. What is significant about those numbers is viewers in that group attract “the most advertising money.”

“The dynamics of where late night is now are changing,” says executive producer, Michael Davies. With the addition of social media and online videos, plus audience interaction, WWHL was among the first to incorporate those elements into TV. “Andy comes at this not from a background in comedy but from a background in broadcasting,” Mr. Davies explains. Adding that Andy’s talent for conversation skills, along with the inclusion of cocktails gives the show a whole different dynamic than other late-night shows!

As a result of his new job, Andy will be “giving up his executive vice president title, though he will remain in charge of program and talent development for the network.” Oh no!!! I wonder if that means he’ll no longer be hosting the reunions. One could only hope…

WWHL will air Sunday-Thursday starting January 2 at 11PM.

We do have to wonder if the show will be able to survive five nights a week without having the Housewives series leading into it. Plus will viewers continue to tune in to the episodes without Bravolebrities? Guess we shall see.

Another Bachelor relationship bites the dust.

After over a year together, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiancé Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship.

The couple’s rep confirms the split to PEOPLE magazine. “Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship,” the rep reveals. “As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”

Ali, 27, and Roberto, 28, got engaged back in 2010 during the 6th season of the Bachelorette. All seemed to be going well for the couple until a few months ago when Ali revealed they had decided to postpone their wedding blaming their busy schedules and a thigh injury.

UsWeekly, however, reported the two were having major problems just last month. Ali is “miserable in the relationship and he is too,” a friend told the mag back then. “Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one,” added the friend stating the two “bring out the worst in each other.”

The report stated the couple’s issues stemmed from their stressful long, hectic work hours as well as big-time fights.

Rob Kardashian went into Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars finale an underdog and left a front runner!

Each of the three remaining finalists had to perform two dances each — a regular dance and a freestyle. In a total shocker, Rob finished with the highest score of the night, earning a total of 57 points!

First Rob, 24, earned a score of 27 for his classic waltz and then a perfect score of 30 (his first this season) for his retro freestyle. “You’re like the male version of Cinderella who made it to the ball, and deservedly so,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Tying for second place were both Ricki Lake and war veteran J.R. Martinez each finishing the night with a total score of 54 points. J.R. earned a 24 for his lackluster cha- cha which judge Led Goodman described as “not very good,” before improving to earn a perfect score of 30 for his 80s freestyle dance!

Ricki Lake was pretty consistent last night earning a score of 27 for both of her dances, which included a cha-cha and a freestyle. “You’ve never been hotter, you’ve never been sexier,” raved judge Bruno Tonioli.

The full scores from last night are below -

Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: (27, 30) 57
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: (27, 27) 54
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: (24, 30) 54

TELL US – WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta the husbands brought the catty as the wives instigated from afar. Kim had a wedding prequel in the form of her baby shower and Sheree started work on her new job building her dream house and I’m counting down the minutes until foreclosure.

Sheree arrives at the building site for Chateau Sheree to watch the demo of the original house built in 1975, practically before she was born. Really Sheree? Someone needs to check you, Boo! BTW: nice “workboots.” Poor Sheree tells us that overseeing the construction of her new home is so much work it’s like a another job – as if she needs one! Leaving all of us to wonder what exactly are Sheree’s other jobs? Being a Housewife? Divorce settlements? Sheree makes sure the contractor has her list of “necessities,” which include: a ballroom with skating rink, a DJ booth, a massage parlor and a library or liberry – even though she doesn’t read. Hopefully she can read the notices of foreclosure that I anticipate will be arriving shortly! Kidding, kidding… only sort of…

Following last week’s super dramatic episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor Armstrong is breaking the silence on her drama with costar Lisa Vanderpump.

On last week’s episode, Taylor, 40, accused Lisa of mistreating her and refusing her friendship, and no we are not back in elementary school! Things took a turn for the bitchier nastier when Taylor outed her costars for talking smack about Lisa behind her back, while also trying to rile them all up to go against Lisa.

LISA VANDERPUMP TALKS RELATIONSHIP & DRAMA WITH TAYLOR!

Unfortunately for Taylor, her attempt failed… miserably as the ladies ended up turning the night into an intervention for her regarding her marriage and her claims of physical abuse at the hands of her now deceased husband, Russell Armstrong.

Taylor, who hasn’t blogged all season, took to her Twitter to discuss the drama. First she appeared to be defending her awful behavior when she tweeted: “U didn’t see all the conversations. But, I love [Lisa] and were good.” This was in response to a fan telling her Lisa never said she was not her friend, but rather stated she was not masquerading as her best friend.

Taylor later added: “I was a nut case. Getting healthy,” after a fan accused her of being a nut case. Lisa, who has been rather gracious with the whole ordeal, also retweeted Taylor’s message so it appears all is well between both ladies. Taylor also had a message for her “haters,” tweeting: “I actually feel for the haters. What a waste of a life.”

Meanwhile, Camille Grammer spoke out about last week’s tea party drama, first making it clear she wasn’t a fan of Taylor’s behavior and then expressing regret for revealing Taylor’s abuse claims on camera.

Camille blogged: “The argument should have been just between Lisa and Taylor. If Taylor had any problems with Lisa, I think she should have pulled Lisa aside or took her for tea alone and discussed their issues… Some of Taylor’s stories were inconsistent which led to our confusion. It was a very touchy and difficult subject and so sad and unfortunate. All we really wanted was the best for her and to help without crossing the line.”

Camille continued, “Accusations were flying around the room. I was frustrated because Taylor basically kept accusing us of being liars and talking behind Lisa’s back. When she said nobody is being honest it struck a nerve with me. I thought, ‘OK, you might not think everyone is being honest but who is really being honest? You’re not being honest with yourself. How do we help you because I know we all tried?’ Over the last year and a half we have protected her and helped her. My frustration stemmed from her blaming others when she needed to look inside her own relationship and to also realize that we were there for her. So what I said came out of that frustration.”

KYLE RICHARDS EXPLAINS WHY SHE DOESN’T LIKE KIM RICHARD’S BOYFRIEND!

“Do I regret saying it — of course! If only I could have broached the subject better, I would have. At the time emotions were running high. Not just with me, but Lisa chimed in too. We were so frustrated. I was truly concerned for Taylor and that’s the hard part. I wanted to be there for her. I did offer that she and Kennedy could move into my home… I regret now what I said during this episode. And I apologized. I felt absolutely terrible. All I wanted to do was help my friend,” added Camille.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 12th episode this season titled ‘The Great Divide,’ friendships are reevaluated and bitter tension is at a simmer in the wake of Lisa’s tea party. As conflict is put on the back burner, Taylor puts her focus on throwing a flashy birthday bash for her daughter.

The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
