Reality Tea

On last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the secret of Brooks Ayers child support drama came to light, and Vicki Gunvalson reared her jealous-streak over the new friendship between Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi.

Vicki is speaking out, and she claims she wasn’t jealous at all, and in fact, encouraged Tamra to put the nonsense with Gretchen to rest. Vicki does realize we’re watching the show, right? Vicki calls comments about her jealousy “just silly,” saying she is happy the two have mended fences. “I told Tamra last year, I had hoped that they could be at least cordial to one another and I encouraged her to stop all that nonsense.”

“To say I’m jealous is the farthest thing from my mind,” Vicki writes in her Bravo Blog. “I mean really. . .we are in our 40s. Why can’t we have many friends versus just one?”

And Vicki claims Tamra started isolating the other ladies to swoon over Gretchen. “I feel Tamra is the type of friend that focuses on one friend at a time, and then tends to find faults in the others to alienate them from the group,” Vicki says. “You can see that happening this year again. It seems every year she is mad at someone or trying to find fault in someone, which I just don’t understand.” Funny that Vicki is complaining about this when Tamra used to feel that way about her and Vicki loved it!

“I wish and pray that Tamra and Gretchen will have a friendship that will last a lifetime,” she concludes. “But to state publicly they are BFFs right out of the gate is a little odd. . .” Ah-greed, Vicki!

Moving on, Vicki takes issue with Slade and Gretchen’s reveal of Brooks’ child support issues, and she insists that he isn’t the deadbeat dad he plays on TV. Isn’t that what Slave has been saying all these years, which she dismissed as bull shitake? #hypocrite.

“I am saddened and appalled that Gretchen and Slade felt it important to bring Brooks child support issues up,” Vicki seethes. “First of all, if most of you remember I did not talk about Slade, his work, or child support issues at all last year. If you recall I actually publicly apologized for commenting on something that is so personal and none of my business.” Wait a second, I seem to remember her doing just that, both on the show, and the reunion. Roll the tape!

“I did not condone Tamra calling Grayson‘s mom when we were filming the reunion last year to discuss his personal and financial issues. It was NONE of my business or Tamra’s, and I found it terribly disrespectful and felt it crossed the line,” Vicki adds. “Now that I am dating Brooks, I guess Gretchen and Slade feel I’m a good target to hit because of Brooks’ past situation.”

And once again, she is defending Brooks! “Brooks children are his utmost priority in his life. It is for this reason that I respect and love him so immensely. PERIOD. He loves his children with all of his might and sees his children as much as possible.”

“He is not a deadbeat dad,” Vicki insists. “When the financial difficulty hit Brooks he more than made up in the other areas of their lives.”

“Brooks got behind in child support and was arrested. Neither Brooks nor I have denied that and it is terribly humiliating and embarrassing to him,” Vicki explains, adding that he had no intention of being in the public eye and dealing with this issue on camera. “Because Brooks is dating me (which equates to being on camera), he has had to publicly face the backlash from press and people, which he did not want.”

“I just want everyone to know that there are TWO sides to every story. Brooks is an amazing man and father, or I wouldn’t be with him. End of discussion.” Well, interesting… I think Vicki just wants a full love tank and nothing else matters!

Finally, Heather Dubrow has gotten off on the wrong foot with most of the ladies – and the audience. After coming across as “pretentious,” to quote Alexis Bellino, Heather is setting the record straight in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Heather claims she’s anything but arrogant – she’s just misunderstood. Uh-huh.

“It’s very easy to listen to one comment and make a snap judgment,” Heather insists. “I’m actually very jokey, and on the show I tell this story about the way I got proposed to, but it’s a joke, I love my husband. You know I married him, not a ring, not a proposal, but it’s kind of a funny story.”

“You heard a piece of it, so if you don’t think it’s funny, and you think it’s pretentious, that’s all right. But in general I am not a pretentious person. I do like nice things, we do live in a great house, but I don’t choose my friends by how much money they have, or what labels they’re wearing.”

Apparently, it was Heather’s husband Terry Dubrow who encouraged her to do the show, citing his past participation in such reality shows as Bridalplasty. Yeah – horrible, I know. “He thought it would be fun, and he thought it would be good for me,” Heather explains. “He basically didn’t talk to me for two weeks until I said I’d do it.”

“It’s a great platform, I mean, I don’t know, I guess if you ask me if I think it’s a good idea if I did this show, ask me in four months. But I think in general, it was an opportunity, Terry and I discussed it, and we decided that the pros outweighed the cons.”

And if you’re expecting Heather to turn all Tamra-trashy – don’t! She doesn’t fly off the handle and go stark raving mad (until her second season when Bravo threatens not to renew her contract!), although she does lose it on alleged-grifter and friend of the Housewives Sarah Winchester. Yeah I can see that!

“I have more filters than the other girls do,” Heather believes. “Except for one person that I dealt with on the show, who was very irrational, I’m not a yeller. So even though I’m being vocal about it, I am not someone who’s going to get in your face. That’s not me. But, I will very clearly and concisely tell you how I feel.”

In the interview, Heather also talks about dealing with infertility. Heather has stated on the show that her fourth child was a “surprise” and further explains this by adding her daughter was also a miracle. “The truth is that I had three children by in vitro. I had a lot of, personally me, not [my husband], but me, I had a lot of fertility problems,” reveals Heather. “So to have a natural child was shocking, and I think I’m still a little shocked by the whole thing and I was ready to go back to work, my other three were in school full-time, and it really changed everything.”

Tonight is an all new episode of RHOC, and the ladies continue to figure out what’s going on between Gretchen and Tamra. (GretchRa? TamChen?) Alexis and Heather do lunch and things don’t go well, and Slave embarks upon his new comedy career. A preview of the new episode is below!

Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny had a girls weekend in Montauk where she confronted her daddy issues. She also wondered about Jason‘s vacations past as a homosexual. And we learn that Jason is finally growing part of a pair and putting his foot down about the home office situation by implementing a schedule!

Things start out with Bethenny meeting her new bestie Hoda for lunch. I do love Bethenny’s dress. The two have bonded over being very busy.

Over ordering Virginica oysters, Bethenny decides to inform both Hoda and the annoyed waiter that the menu options sound like her “wazoo” except nothing about Bethenny seems plump or balanced. Leave it to Bethenny to turn lunch porny. Good lord – she really needs to stop with the stupid, gross vag-talk. The waiter was mortified, which amused Beth.

In today’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills news update, the ladies remind us that even though the season ended they’re still here and very much looking for some attention. Can’t they go into housewives hibernation when the series is on hiatus? How’s that for some alliteration!

To kick things off, Kim Richards, really, really wants the producers to know that despite the fact that she missed 3/4 of filming last season and regularly embarrassed herself on national television, she’s like totally down for round three!

Despite a very rocky last season, which, culminated with her entering rehab last December, Kim says she wants to come back to prove that sobriety is possible! Kim says she’s learned many lessons from appearing on the show and from going through treatment. “It makes me want to step out in front of everything and just say, ‘You know what, anybody can do it,’” Kim told US Magazine. “I don’t want to walk away from anything in my life. It’s part of life: facing it!”

“My fans have been so supportive. People walk up to me and they just hug me and cry. That’s so rewarding to me,” Kim says of the support she’s gotten.

As for what helped her focus on on getting sober, Kim credits, “My family and friends–without them I just couldn’t do it.” Richards said. “It was a rough road to get here, but I’m really, really good.”

Reports have claimed, Kim will not return next season because she is choosing to leave the show. Other reports have claimed Kim will not be asked back, because she is seen as a liability following a season of erratic behavior.

Moving right along, Taylor Armstrong, self-proclaimed expert on domestic violence, has some advice for recording artists, collaborators, and ex-couple Rihanna and Chris Brown! Surprisingly, Taylor says she thinks it’s totally fine for Chris and Rihanna to work together despite their violent history. “I do believe you can have a healthy relationship with someone years after,” Taylor revealed.

“I don’t know what their relationship is now, but as long as they’re keeping one another safe and at a good distance, or if they’ve had the appropriate treatment they can collaborate on a project without it being dangerous,” Taylor advocated while appearing on HLN.

Taylor added that she thinks the two can use their fame as a platform to educate the public on domestic violence. “I think that they have a real opportunity here to make a huge impact in the domestic violence world and I think they’re going to do that right thing.”

As for her own situation, she claims to have an amicable relationship with estranged husband Russell Armstrong, before he committed suicide, saying they were working together to co-parent positively. “We weren’t safe being married; we weren’t safe living in the same household. But could we have gone on to have a healthy co-parenting relationship and a friendly relationship? Absolutely,” Taylor remarked. Um… shocking and odd. But then again, Taylor is the person who totes her seven-year-old daughter along to book signings for a book that’s entire focus is about how horrible the child’s, now deceased, father was. So, yeah…

Taylor’s future with RHOBH is also uncertain, with multiple conflicting reports speculating her appearance on next season!

And just moments ago, TMZ reported that Camille Grammer and her ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer have finally settled their bitter custody case, amicably.

Sources close to Kelsey reveal he and Camille agreed to joint custody of their two kids — 10-year-old Mason and 7-year-old Jude. The kids will continue living with Camille in California, while, Kelsey continues to have “meaningful contact” with them. Still on the table? The couple’s divorce settlement, though, sources say they are also close to coming to an agreement with that.

Finally, Brandi Glanville has still not recovered from her tumultuous first season with the ladies of Beverly Hills. Brandi is now speaking out about the “bullying” she feels she was subjected to, at the hands of co-tarts, such as Kyle Richards.

“I’ve never really experienced anything like that,” Brandi told Hollyscoop. “It was kind of like going into mean girls’ camp and fighting your way out and like, I’ve never experienced it so I didn’t know how to deal with it.”

“I mean, I know [bullying] is an issue, but I never really realized how bad it could feel until this happened,” Brandi admitted. Her experiences on the show were not all bad, however; Brandi says she made real-life good friends in Camille Grammer and Lisa Vanderpump.

“I talk to Lisa every morning,” Brandi shared. “She gives me really great advice and she tells me not to cuss on Twitter, and she’s constantly like mommying me in a way. Like, she’s not old enough to be my mom clearly, but she’s constantly saying, ‘Don’t wear that, don’t say that!’ But I like it, it’s cute.”

VH1 Basketball Wives Season 4

Last night was the second episode, of the new season, of Basketball Wives. Things are status quo…the new girls are trying to cause just enough drama to get camera time while not alienating everyone right off the bat, Shaunie is barely around (she’s too busy producing), the only thing the women like to talk about are one another, and Suzie is clawing her way up the “popular” ladder.

Shaunie, Tami, and Evelyn meet up to discuss the recent fight between Evelyn and Jennifer. Evelyn touts her two friends as good mediators. Tami believes that Jenn just doesn’t get it, while Shaunie thinks Jenn understood but didn’t want to “punk out.” As far as Evelyn’s concerned, Jenn is lucky she didn’t get punched in the face. All the ladies are trashing Jenn, but Tami and Shaunie are trying to be much more objective than the outspoken Evelyn. While all the ladies agree that Jenn has definitely found her voice, Shaunie thinks she is more reserved around her friends, while, doing more trash talking in the media.

No, no, no! Corey’ Simms‘ camo hat seems to be prohibiting rational thoughts from coming out of that noggin of his!

The current issue of Us Weekly has those close to the jilted Teen Dad–whose wife of six months Leah Messer confessed to cheating on him a week before they were married–speculating that he wants her back! The couple’s divorce was highlighted on the final episodes of this season’s Teen Mom 2 after Leah spilled the infidelity beans, claiming Corey wouldn’t have sex with her in the weeks leading up to their wedding. Well, if that is the case, her cheating must have been justified! #dumbestexcuseever

The pair’s divorce was finalized in June of last year, with Leah jumping straight into another relationship, another cohabitation, and another engagement rather quickly with new beau Jeremy Calvert. Leah even tragically suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant by Jeremy. However, none of this information seems to dissuade Corey from wanting to reconcile with the mother of his twin daughters.

A “friend” of his explains to the magazine, “Corey is still crazy for Leah. He doesn’t want her to marry Jeremy.”

Another source laments, “He did all he could to make it work, as she’s the only girl he ever loved.”

Said source must also be a mutual friend of Leah’s, because he/she believes that Corey’s hopes are a lost cause, sharing, “Leah will always care about Corey, but she’s happy with Jeremy. Watching this season made her relive their problems.” Their problems. Could “their problems” have something to do with the fact that Leah cheated on her groom-to-be and then blamed the demise of their marriage on him not wanting to buy a new trailer? Nah, probably different problems…

Not so fast there, Lauren! Apparently Leah has amped up her “no sex before the wedding is a valid reason to cheat” excuse to include–dum da dum dum–porn! Specifically, Corey was watching porn instead of bedding his fiance. Now, I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I am shocked and appalled. Corey watches porn? Corey, the young twenty-something male who didn’t want a trailer upgrade and needed subtitles, watches porn? If she had told me he read classic novels until late into the night so he was too tired for sexy time or even that his Sudoku addiction interfered with his libido, I’d believe her…but porn? That’s a stretch.

In a sneak peek video posted below, the couple is seen discussing their sex life (or apparently lack thereof) with Dr. Drew in a premiere for tomorrow night’s final episode. While Corey claims the pair had a very active and normal sex life, Leah maintains that he wasn’t very affectionate towards her in the weeks leading up to their wedding due to all the porn he was watching.

“I felt like you was looking at her, and thinking…I mean, I kinda felt like that was cheating,” Leah tells Corey during the Drew-led conversation. Eh, maybe, but not as much cheating as actually having intercourse with someone other than your partner. But that’s just me.

Enough on the second installment of Teen Moms, the original Teen Moms need some attention too! Realityweeklymagazine.com is reporting that Corey isn’t the only one from the franchise chasing down an old flame. Apparently, Maci Bookout has her sights set on ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards in light of her recent break-up with long-time love Kyle King. You recall that the pair didn’t make it after alleged pressure on Kyle from Maci to marry her ASAP. Of course, does anyone think that Maci was ever really over Bentley’s dad?

Yet another “source” close to the young mom reveals, “He’s always been the one. She’s still in love with Ryan. A part of it is definitely the chemistry — she thinks he’s really hot.”

Ahh, young love. I wonder if these girls will ever learn that being “hot” isn’t the most important building block in a healthy, stable relationship. Probably not.

The conclusion of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10 PM ET.

DO YOU THINK COREY REALLY WANTS TO RECONCILE WITH LEAH? WILL THE TWO GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON HIS PORN WATCHING LEADING TO HER CHEATING? WAS MACI EVER REALLY OVER RYAN?


When our fearless editor RT let me know my new assignment was Bad Girls Club, I was scared. Previously, I considered this hangover television, and no matter what you may have heard, hangovers on a Monday night just aren’t my style anymore. So, I invite you to take this journey with me. Hope you bought your acrylic nails and your weave, because we’re about to be hazed into the Bad Girls Club!

Last week, new girl Elease, a name that sounds like a social network for landlords showed up, and to welcome her, the other girls threw her mattress into the pool. Erica and Gia decide that having Elease sleep in the “VIP room” on a hard bed was too cruel, so they ran out and got her a new one. This pisses off the Spongebob twins, Gabi and Dani, and while the other girls were at a group trip to the tattoo parlor, they drag her new mattress out and cover it in food, writing out a special message, “Welcome To The BGC.”

And just last week, Bethenny shocked her fans when she revealed she recently suffered a miscarriage. Good to see her doing better and in happier spirits. More bikini shots of Bethenny are below!
