When I saw Starbucks’ new “Meet Me At Starbucks” campaign this week, it reminded me of the way I think of our community here at Reality Tea. It’s sort of our virtual Starbucks. We all fire up our phones and laptops and tablets and grab our morning coffee (or Passion Tango Iced Tea Lemonade in my case because summer is over and my beloved Blackberry Mojita is gone, gone, gone) and we hang out and dissect the day’s reality TV news, gossip, and latest episodes.
When I watched the video featuring all of these people from 28 countries coming together for a million reasons, it made me think how cool it would be if we could all REALLY meet up at Starbucks and chat in person and spill the tea together! But we’d have to bring along little signs with “up arrows” because we wouldn’t know how to interact without them! Then again, would they let us in? We can get a little fired up and rowdy around here….

The tale of woe continues… Jon Gosselin has been evicted from his home.
In May, Jon was fired from his job as a waiter for coming in late and blowing off shifts. Jon’s next attempt at employment – credit card sales – did not work out either. Now the broke and unemployed father of eight has been evicted.
“The eviction happened last week,” an insider confirmed. “Jon could no longer afford the rent. The job at the credit card company he was working for didn’t pan out. The anticipated income wasn’t there and the situation deteriorated.”
When I think of Jenelle Evans, Nathan Griffith, and Barbara Evans together, I do not think of the Happiest Place on Earth. Hell on Earth? Yes. Happiest? Hell to the no. But that’s exactly where the dysfunctional trio, as well as Jace and Kaiser, are right now. It’s nice to see Jenelle spend quality time with Jace in Disney World. He looks so happy – and even Jenelle managed to smile.
The troubled Teen Mom 2 star has come a long way since we first met her on 16 & Pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong, I still think Jenelle is an insufferable and selfish human being, but she IS making more of an effort where her son, Jace, and her mother, Barbara, are concerned. The fact that Jenelle and Babs are on vacation together (this is me pretending the swarmy one does not exist) is huge. Check out a few pictures from their Disney World vacation below.
I was going to make a joke about how luckily it’s not ebola, but ugh – so inappropriate of me!
On Monday Brandi shared the news with fans of her father’s condition. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star explained that her father was admitted for hitting his head and was suffering from low blood pressure which caused him to keep blacking out. “I’m SO frustrated with doctors! All these meds & he is just gonna die by hitting his head.” Apparently he has been battling this condition for a while now.
It has been no secret that Josh Altman and Heather have called off their wedding. For now. But on last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, seeing him try on his custom inscribed tuxedo, ‘to a beautiful beginning’ on the lapel and ‘I’m sold’ under the collar, gave me the sads. Fortunately, his brother Matt, in his Yolanda Foster approved Hermes belt, will be there to help him get through the tough times. And carry him professionally as well.
The Altman Brothers have a Big Fish to catch. Up for grabs is the majestic Dorothy Chandler estate in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles. A major deal in Josh Altman’s career. At the same time, he is supposed to be planning his client-focused wedding extravaganza with Heather, who is none too pleased to be meeting with the florist on her own. Josh senses that things are going south with his fiancé when she hangs the phone up on him. And Heather never hangs up on him.
Last night Sonja attended an exclusive cabaret show at Café Carlyle for a performance by actress Molly Ringwald. At $600 per ticket, one might expect class – or not! Sonja reportedly showed up wasted, violated dress code, and behaved sloppily, report other attendees.
Witnesses claim that Sonja was seated front and center and paid more attention to her cell phone than the performance. And that she was drunk as a skunk upon arrival – only worsened by her “martini-swilling” throughout the evening. Lord let’s just be thankful she kept all her clothes on and her legs closed, or didn’t hop up on stage to perform her own “Caburlesque” nonsense.
From her table surround by male attendants (who is she Lady Gaga now?) Sonja was talking loudly throughout Molly’s act and spent the evening texting and tweeting on her phone. “Sonja seemed completely bombed,” says a witness of Sonja’s attention-seeking. “She had about five men at the table and they were all chatting throughout. She drunkenly asked to meet Molly, who declined.”
Yesterday Phaedra Parks appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk the recent events of her life – most specifically Apollo Nida‘s incarceration and their marriage! Ellen also asked Phaedra about her Real Housewives Of Atlanta castmates and if Apollo cheated during their marriage.
What struck me is how nervous Phaedra seemed – in all the heated situations we’ve seen Phaedra in I’ve never seen her literally trembling. We do know she doesn’t like to “open up” so maybe that had something to do with it. I did love her dress which, and she joked with Ellen that anyone could be a southern belle – even Ellen. Ellen joked back that she had pearls on under her suit.
We previously shared some of Phaedra’s quotes about her life now, how she was initially supportive and believed Apollo was telling the truth (“Obviously it didn’t turn out that way,” she acknowledges.) and Phaedra also denied cheating during their marriage.
