Reality Tea

mob wives ladies

Wow. Last night’s Mob Wives was like something out of the cartoon movie The Secret of NIHM. Am I aging myself? Probably. But gracious! Both have a lot of rats! It begins with Big Ang and Renee Graziano hashing out their issues, but Ang has invited a surprise guest. It’s Darryl Hannah from Splash! Sure, she’s a little older and she’s wearing a suit, but the hair is the same! Renee tries to raise an eyebrow (damn, Botox!). She has no issues with Victoria Gotti, but the Gottis and Karen Gravano’s family have beef. Renee wonders why Ang would invite Victoria knowing that her loyalties lie with biffle Karen. Ang is hoping that Victoria and Renee’s past will make Renee listen to what she has to say. Immediately, Renee wants to know Victoria’s opinion on outsiders. “Hate ’em.” Check!

Renee feels like she may have an ally and tells Victoria that an slime ball outsider is slandering her all over the Twitterverse, yet Ang stays friends with her. Ang reminds Renee that she’s the one who brought Natalie Guercio into the group. Ang doesn’t have issues or drama with friends. In fact, Renee is the only one of her friends who consistently decides to hate people. It’s exhausting. Renee babbles on about loyalty, but Ang wonders why they can’t just be ladies and not gangsters. Victoria sees Renee’s point (Renee is so excited to think that Ang’s plan has backfired). Ang brings up the fact that Renee has disrespected her family and also called her a clown. Victoria reminds the women that they are closer than friends…they are family. She should get her own therapy themed reality show. I’m kidding, VH1! Don’t even!


Teresa Guidice at Son of Cubano in New Jersey

Teresa Giudice is officially an inmate at Danbury Correctional Institute where she will remain until 2016. While her newest attorney (there’s been a string of ’em) James J. Leonard Jr. has speculated the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star will be out by Christmas of next year, the prison lists it just a leeeetle later than that! 

Teresa surrendered to Danbury in the wee hours of the morning on January 5th to avoid the media circus (consisting of Bravo cameras following a sobbing Jacqueline Laurita and desperate Kathy Wakile) already forming outside of her house, and because she didn’t want to expose her daughters to any more negative publicity. Danbury has her prisoner Register Number as 65703-050.

Lisa Vanderpump

I don’t know about you, but I am still reeling–REELING!–from Brandi Glanville’s behavior on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I’ve always loved Lisa Vanderpump, and up until she got too big for her britches last season, I enjoyed Brandi and what appeared to be her genuine friendship with Lisa. I was duped, y’all!

The addition of Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson was enough to make this three plus decades Days of Our Lives fanatic over the moon (I was watching in the womb…I’m not really that old 😉 ), but I didn’t realize I’d adore them on the show as much as I do. They are both such class acts, and I have to say, I wish Eileen had channeled her inner Kristen DiMera when Brandi’s chardonnay hit her square in the face. She, my friends, is a class act. Not surprisingly, Lisa agrees with me. 

Addressing the situation with Brandi in her Bravo blog, Lisa begins, “Hello to all of you. As I sit here with a bit of a cold, I am trying to make sense of this complicated situation. Here goes…So we open with the decision made that I would meet, much to my husband’s chagrin, Brandi for lunch. Ken is fiercely loyal, and as you saw in the flashbacks, he went out of his way, almost to his own detriment, to defend Brandi. He felt strongly that after last season she would no longer be in that position again. I believe what hurt him the most was when Yolanda [Foster] intimated he abused her, which the footage shows he clearly doesn’t. He wouldn’t, and he is a protector of women, so when Brandi tweeted, ‘A man should never put his hands on a woman’ (all in the master plan attempting to discredit him),he was extremely hurt and disappointed. Little incidents like these, including bankruptcy allegations, accumulated in his mind apart from all the footage we had seen, and I think, unfortunately for him, it is just too big to forget.”


Worst Dressed Reality TV Stars 2014 Kim Kardashian

I was assigned the task of naming the worst dressed reality TV stars of 2014. My first thought was, this post going to be a piece of cake. My second thought was, wait, the photo gallery has a limit of 40?!? 

If I has to narrow it down to top ten, I would name Kim KardashianCourtney Stodden, Joseline Hernandez, Scheana Marie, Jackie Christie, Natalie Guercio, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Porsha Williams, Khloe Kardashian, and Gretchen Rossi as the worst dressed reality TV stars of 2014. See their looks, as well as some fashion fails from a few other reality TV stars, below.

Eileen Davidson was initiated into the cult of Housewives and found the hazing worse than what she’s had to endure on Days Of Our Lives. It turns out some people – ahem Brandi Glanville – take their fangirl stalker status a lot too far – or maybe they’re just hella passive aggressive. Eileen can’t decide. 

“I think you can tell I didn’t know how to handle it when it happened. First of all, I didn’t hear Brandi say she was going to throw the wine in my face, so it came as a complete surprise. But even if I had heard, I’m sure I wouldn’t have believed she’d actually do it,” the new Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star admits.

Eileen is candid that she cried in reaction. “I laughed at first, and then I teared up. OK, I cried.” She explains, “It was so bizarre and felt like such an attack coming from a woman (not a little girl, BTW who needs a timeout, a spanking, or whatever) that I barely knew. And then I was left to wonder, to what end? I seem to ask myself that question a lot where Brandi’s concerned.”


Ramona Singer

Here’s a bit of advice to reality stars: if you’re going to hire social media managers or assistants who help you run and have access to your social media accounts, pay them!  Or change your passwords!  Ramona Singer learned that lesson early this morning when her social media manager used her Twitter powers to try to get paid!  Either that or a crafty hacker was trying to help a girl out..

Around 3 a.m. this message was Tweeted out on Ramona’s personal Twitter account:



It’s the oldest reality TV trick in the book: the leaked sex tape! Rumors are whispering that a certain member of the Real Housewives franchise is about to “leak” a so-called stolen sex tape! For today’s blind item let’s speculate about who it could possibly be… 

According to sources the Housewife in question is in major debt and is going to sell a leaked sex tape to pay that off – but also because she hopes it will make a much bigger star; like Kim Kardashian huge! The tape, which was made in the last year, contains nasty, nastiness!
