Reality Tea

Deck the halls with Kardashian stories! Fa la la la la, blah, blah, blah, blah! Because it wouldn’t be just another day if she wasn’t doing just another interview, Kim Kardashian is opening up about her failed marriage, the recent and tumultuous media backlash, and her sincere apologies for her part in the Kardarshiscam her family’s staying power and the future prospects of the Kardynasty.

Pagesix.com is reporting on Kimmie’s recent cover story for the Hollywood Reporter which cites her as one of the past year’s biggest “rule breakers.” In her interview, Kimmie discusses the family’s growing number of reality shows and threatens promises the shows will continue and multiply. She states, “There are so many of us, but I think we’ll see more of my younger siblings.”

With the family starting to focus on the next generation of Kardashians Jenners, Kylie and Kendall, as well Kim’s younger brother, Dancing with the Stars alum Rob Kardashian, the overexposed reality star predicts their “television monopoly will ‘go on for years.’” When is the next rapture scheduled? Geez Louise!

When will the rest of the planet have some relief? That’s simple, Kim reveals. The Kardashians will stop assaulting us from all fronts tabloid, television series and E! specials as soon as the money stops rolling in it is no longer “fun”. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she means when it stops being fun for them, not us… because, in my opinion, it stopped being fun for me a while ago. Kimmie vows, “When the fun stops so will we.” Um, can the viewing public please get that in writing?

Pimpmomager Kris Jenner was shockingly right by her favorite daughter’s side for the interview, giving her two cents on the klan’s monopoly. Kris boasts, “I’m really proud at how hard we’ve all worked this year and what we’ve accomplished. We roll as one big unit, so whether something’s sad, happy or tragic, we come together as a family and everything falls into place.” And the money keeps falling into their inflated bank accounts. But whose fault is that? They definitely have an audience, even if most of that audience seems disgusted by them.

Not addressed in the magazine’s year-end double issue? I’ll give you two guesses, and the first one doesn’t count. There is no mention of her blink-and-you-missed-it marriage to basketballer Kris Humphries, not to be confused with her shoved-down-your-throat-even-people-who-live-under-rocks-saw-it wedding. Also absent from the article was any mention of the recent allegations that many of the products produced and touted by the Kardashian empire are created in Chinese sweatshops. Now, how surprised are you that those minor issues were inadvertently left out of the article? It’s Kimmie’s world, y’all. We’re just living in watching it.

Poor ex-husband Kris didn’t even get a mention in Kim’s interview, so you’re probably wondering how’s he’s holding up in this whole media firestorm. Well, with the NBA lockout over and Kris back playing with his beloved New Jersey Nets, things couldn’t be better for the dude glaringly left out of the Kasdashian Christmas kard (sorry, I couldn’t stomach starting Christmas with a “K” as much as it would have fit. I’m not going to give Kimmie Christmas!). He’s doing great… minus that entire Karbacklashian he’s facing.

Hollywoodlife.com reports that number 43 isn’t letting fan hate affect his time on the court. A source reveals, “[Kris] is letting it slide and not reacting negatively too it. He wasn’t really affected by being booed as he expected it from the Madison Square Garden crowd, especially playing for the other team.” Yeah, I’m willing to bet all the poor sportsmanship he was met with was purely a result of not playing for the home team.

The site reveals that nearly everyone in the huge venue booed the guy when the game began. That’s just not right! Kris, however, seems to be taking it all in stride. The insider continues, “He doesn’t blame Kim. This is all about playing basketball and he refuses to let the boos and hatred get to him.” He’s certainly a bigger person than I am, literally (thankfully, at almost 6’0, I’m not quite at Amazon status yet) and figuratively. Keep up that great attitude Kris because chances are it’s going to be a looonnnggg season.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIAN EMPIRE IS IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL? IF SO, WILL YOU KEEP WATCHING? THOUGHTS ON POOR KRIS’ RECEPTION AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN?


This week (like every other week in reality TV news) has been dominated by Real Housewives of New Jersey. You know how they say NYC is the city that never sleeps, I feel like it’s actually Jersey that never sleeps because the drama just keeps on coming faster than you can say “Joewwww!”

In the latest, Reality Tea’s source gives us exclusive behind the scenes details of Joe Giudice‘s Identity Theft case and reveals why Melissa Gorga‘s and Teresa Giudice‘s Christmas cards look so similar!

Earlier this week we reported that Juicy was indicted on wrongful use of identifying information and impersonation charges and could be facing multiple years in prison for his crimes ! Reality Tea’s source confirms the Giudice family is “not happy” with the verdict and allegedly Joe has claimed to have stolen the documents used to obtain the driver’s license from his brother Pete Giudice!

“I will say Joe is loyal to his family. Pete is the one who gave Joe the documents,” the source shockingly reveals! “But, since that hasn’t been reported I assume Joe is saying he ‘stole’ them from his brother.” This possibly explains why Pete has not been charged with any crimes related to the incident.

Our source also reveals that Pete’s wife, Sheila Giudice, had no idea how the documents ended up in Joe’s hands! “The truth is, his wife Sheila had NO clue Pete gave Joe the documents. The documents were in their safe and only Pete and Sheila have access to it.”

“Sheila was irate when she learned Pete gave Joe the documents. But, since Joe was giving Pete work at the time and still is, Pete is indebted to Joe.” Pete filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and presumably was having financial troubles as the debts listed on their filing were “consumer debts” or personal debts and as opposed to business related debts.

Our source then goes on to describe the animosity between sister-in-laws at war Teresa and Melissa! Apparently, while Christmas is the birthday of Baby Jesus (and that’s what matters most to Melissa #backwardssignofthecross), and should be a time of peace, love, and giving these two ladies just cannot put their differences aside and focus on the bigger picture! And speaking of pictures… here comes Christmas Card-gate!

According to our source, the annual Gorgadice Christmas card feud has been happening for years as Teresa and Melissa battle it out to have the biggest, the best, and most over the top cards of them all! Our source also touches on some of Melissa’s other alleged copy-cat behavior, “Melissa is now putting recipes on her blog?”

“They both used the SAME photographer for their Christmas cards this year,” our source reveals, explaining why the Antonia is wearing the exact same coat that was seen on Gia in a card a few years back! Copies of the cards are below! Teresa posted on her website that she gets her cards from Portrait Artistry by Linda Marie and found her when she was “driving past her studio” and looking for someone to photograph Gia’s birth announcement.

Melissa recently announced on her personal blog that she has also used Linda for years, “I’ve been going to her since Antonia was born! She also did the beautiful family picture you saw us do on season 3 with Joe [Gorga]‘s family!” Right below that Melissa also offers one of her personal recipes.

According to our source, the ladies keep using Linda Marie for competition! Poor Linda Marie! “They both act like they love her [Linda] so much… meanwhile, neither one of them have used her the past few years. Teresa did use her last year for Christmas pics.” Teresa claims to have always used Linda on her website and included a montage of Christmas cards past for us to enjoy.

Our insider continues, “Melissa was going to Photos By Ginny for the past few years but, since she feared Teresa’s cards would be better then hers she went back to Linda.”

“They always hold out and wait until the last minute to mail their cards. As soon as Teresa sends hers out, a day or 2 later here come Melissa’s. This is the 4th year in a row Melissa has done this. Teresa stopped using Linda when Melissa started using her. Melissa tries to act like she always used her in her blog.”

“Melissa has been trying to keep up with Teresa and copying her more and more,” our insider adds. Well hopefully Melissa doesn’t copy her way into bankruptcy!

Christmas Card-gate is apparently just the tip of the iceberg with these two and even more upsetting, according to our source things are so acrimonious between the Gorgas and the Giudices, they will not be spending the holidays together because Teresa’s parents won’t allow it!

“Teresa’s father refuses to be in the same room as the 2 Joe’s. He is afraid of them fighting and can’t handle it in his health condition.”  Ok, that’s when you know you need to stop it, sit down, and work out your differences!

I remember idolizing the California rich and famous with their million dollar convertible cars, diamond encrusted watches and Peach Pit lunches alongside Color Me Badd. Things Beverly Hills used to be known for: ridiculously lavish lifestyles (thank you, Robin Leach!), Rodeo Drive, a snobby yet endearing Girl Scout troop (hats sashes off to you, Shelley Long!) and 90210.

Things Beverly Hills is known for now: Kyle Richards’ White Party (#sosorrybevhills), Jiggy as well as the Taylor Armstrong and Russell Armstrong tragedy. Whatever happened to “Donna Martin graduates!” and the iconic Pretty Woman mantra, “You work on commission, right? Big mistake. Huge!” Simpler times, I guess.

Because she’s not going anywhere one celebrity site is shedding more insight into Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong’s life… and the decision she may have hoped would secure her a spot on the potential third season of Bravo’s hit show. I’m exhausted writing about it, so she surely has to be tired living it. One would hope…don’t I wish.

RadarOnline.com is citing Taylor’s timing for her divorce filing from the late Russell Armstrong as a necessity to keep her in the network’s good graces. The site is reporting that Taylor “finally decided to file for divorce from her then-husband… because executives at Bravo had implemented a ban prohibiting the couple from appearing on the hit show after Russell sent executives legal letters threatening to sue.”

We all watched awkwardly (insert typical metaphor here — it’s a train wreck… you don’t want to see it, but you can’t look away) on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You recall that Taylor and Russell were turned away from Kyle’s annual White Party by the teary hostess (and a bada$$ Paul Nassif!) after Russell threatened fellow cast mate Camille Grammar with a lawsuit via e-mail for alleging abuse against his wife.

However, it seems Camille wasn’t the only one on the receiving end of Russell’s litigious barrage because a source close to the show claims, “During filming of the show, as the season progressed, [he] started sending blistering letters and e-mails to Bravo and NBC Universal executives threatening lawsuits. Russell was furious that Taylor had discussed their serious marital issues, including the fact that he hit her on multiple occasions.”

The insider continues, saying that Russell was irate “the fellow housewives were now talking about it on the show.” The insider reveals, “Russell would have had no legal leg to stand on because it was Taylor who was telling the girls this stuff. Bravo and NBC decided that Russell and Taylor were more trouble than they were worth, and decided to end filming with them, as soon as it became apparent that Russell was going to continue down that path.”

So what’s a girl to do?  Her spotlight in jeopardy and her husband an alleged ticking time-bomb, the Bravo star did what needed to be done.  The source says, “Taylor decided to pursue the separation first, but then she thought to get back on the show, she would need to file for divorce, so that she could appear on the show again, if she promised executives that she was leaving him for good.” Despite all the clauses the insider throws out in that statement, the entire scene is just plain sad. Whether you believe a woman was so desperate to remain on a television program that she would throw her marriage under the bus or that she was saving herself and her young daughter from terrors to come, the whole situation was/is/and will continue to be horrific and heart wrenching.

The insider continues, “[F]or a very long time [Taylor knew] that she needed to leave Russell because of the verbal and physical abuse. Being taken off a show that she loved doing because of his actions was the catalyst that finally made her pull the trigger on her marriage. Russell knew he was going to be exposed and was in full damage control mode. Ultimately, there was nothing he could do to stop it.”

Taylor won’t be seen on the show again until the new year according to the source who reports, “The episode that will air on Monday night will show all of the girls except Taylor going to Hawaii. Taylor will call the girls, and tell them on speakerphone while they are on their Hawaiian holiday that she had decided to leave Russell.”

Again, regardless of your opinions on this tragedy (and I have my own, believe me) it’s nothing but awful given Russell’s suicide, the fact that an innocent five-year-old is involved, and the notion that it’s all playing out for our “entertainment.” So sad, and yet please know the irony of me writing about it isn’t lost on this gal. Here’s hoping that outside the world that is Beverly Hills (past and present) you and yours revel in family and friends this holiday season.

THOUGHTS ON THIS NEW REVELATION?  DO YOU THINK TAYLOR FILED FOR DIVORCE TO STAY ON THE SHOW?  WHAT DO YOU THINK OF RUSSELL THREATENING THE NETWORK WITH LAWSUITS?

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is delivering some unbeweavable news — she recently announced she is “over” drama and her priorities have totally changed in recent months since avoiding NeNe Leakes getting married to Kroy Biermann and having her third child, KJ.

“Having a new baby changes you,” Kim told PEOPLE. “Watching this season, I feel like you can just see how happy I am on my face – I don’t even have to say anything.” And this season Kim is happy to have her life on film, “I’m grateful to have all this captured on camera.”

Kim admits that past seasons were hard to watch due to the non-stop confrontations and drama surrounding her, but now that she is in a different place with a different focus she doesn’t cringe at all. Not even when we see her carting around a couple dozen wigs she treats like children? “I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I’d be like, ‘Oh, god,’ ” Kim confesses. “And now, this season … it’s been incredible … I wasn’t involved with the drama.”

“I absolutely have no regrets, but this season is a lot easier for me to watch,” she reveals. “Last year I was caught up in drama and trying to do that bus tour. And it’s hard to watch.”

“You live it, and then six months later, you watch it on TV,” Kim explains of how reality TV works. “So this season, there aren’t any moments where I’m in a position where I’m going to cover my eyes.”

Kim is equally excited about the new year and the premiere of her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding. So what’s her New Year’s Resolution? “To get more for sleep.” Darn, I was hoping it’d be something along the lines of start more drama or that her wigs would get their own spin-off. At least it’s not to produce another song!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? IS KIM CAPABLE OF AVOIDING DRAMA OR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL SHE GETS SWEPT BACK IN? ARE YOU LIKING THE LESS CRAZY KIM THIS SEASON?

Santa Claus came early, y’all!  Forget about that cookbook, those cozy socks or that chic handbag you’re hoping to see under the tree – Real Housewives of D.C.’s famewhorusband Tareq Salahi has given you the most wonderful gift. His belly could definitely shake like a bowl full of jelly… ironic, no?

Tareq is finally responding to estranged wife Michaele Salahi’s recent allegations. It’s humorous, it’s mythical, it’s everything you would think it could possibly be. Tareq is quite “fra-gee-lay” in the following interview. Perhaps he should have asked Santa for a leg lamp instead of a plastic, White House party-crashing bride.

Tareq, who has filed for divorce from his better other half, spoke with the Huffingtonpost.com defending himself against Michaele’s claims of abuse. He begins, “She’s a piece of work. First it was she found true love with Neil Schon [of] Journey and now that she lawyered up, they are grasping for a way out so she doesn’t have to pay up her side of our financial obligations.”  Don’t stop believin’, Tareq!  She’ll come clean about her cheating ways and you’ll get your money! Will the Journey jokes ever get old (Perhaps in 2012, but not yet!)?

Tareq is still in contact with his former lady love. He says, “When I spoke to Michaele yesterday, she said she didn’t know her lawyer wrote those things and was sorry… I doubt that. She is very calculating and devious. So now, she says, after 12 years, I’m suddenly controlling or abusive… [w]hen in fact I loved her, and did everything to support my wife and put her on a pedestal to make her a shining star.”

“I really think Michaele thinks she’s still on Real Housewives and needs to create drama,” Tareq continues.  Well, someone certainly does, but I won’t name names! Seriously, why did these two part ways (besides that whole “she became a Journey groupie” situation)? It’s like they are the same person.

Tareq is quick to note that his wife is famous (poor choice of words) for twisting reality in her favor. He even goes as far to call her a liar, reminding ‘fans’ that “Michaele is a well-known and documented liar from The Real Housewives of D.C., to our personal life with her other false statements such as being a Redskins cheerleader,Victoria’s Secret model, college graduate, her M.S… Everything was a lie in our marriage.” So, Tareq was just as fooled as the rest of us about Michaele’s cheerleading past? Seriously? Even the Redskins knew she was never on the sidelines, but Tareq… he coveted those fake pom-poms until his marriage fell apart. I’m not even going to touch his accusations that the M.S. claim was a lie. Shame… on both of them.

It’s sad, really. Poor Tareq is just an innocent party, victimized by his soon to be ex-wife’s web of deceit. He reveals, “Michaele abandoned her home, committed adultery and lied to all her friends. Michaele lied about her real home [when] filming the Real Housewives.”  Truly? Michaele is the only one who lied about her real home? How tragic for Tareq to spend a full Bravo season filming and pseudo-living in a house that wasn’t. Even. His. He must be devastated to learn that truth. I bet Michelle Obama isn’t her half-sister either. Tareq must feel so betrayed — Why else would he have crashed attended that White House dinner?

It gets better. Tareq was totally blinded by Michaele. He thought she was “just a small town girl.” Too much? While it’s hard for him to admit, he shares, “Michaele lied to her husband about attending college. Michaele lied to her own friends, family and cast about an eating disorder. Michaele lied to the public about loving our dog Rio. In short, nearly everything [she] told me was an apparent lie.” Wait, she lied about not eating?!? I don’t buy it. However, when she starts pretending she loves a dog when she’s clearly a cat lady person, that’s when I draw the line. B*tch.

So, let’s break this down. Tareq was a doting, clueless husband, who is not at all shady or fame hungry while Michaele was brilliant enough to make up these falsities on her own. Sure, and he’s just friends with Michael Lohan because they share the same hobbies. I don’t know about you, but I’m about to pour a glass of Oasis wine and watch an episode of “Lifestyles of the Chubby and Irrelevant” if you’d care to join me. Those Salahis, bringing the Christmas cheer all year long!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF TAREQ SALAHI’S INTERVIEW?  WAS HE IN THE DARK ABOUT MICHAELE’S ALLEGED LIES?  DO YOU THINK EITHER OF THEM WILL EVER JUST GO AWAY? :)

With the Real Housewives of Orange County premiering in a few short weeks the first ladies of Bravo are out in full force promoting the new season. Bravo recently confirmed new Housewife Heather Dubrow and they have also released a preview clip of the upcoming season!

Season 7 is promising lots of drama (as well as some bad eighties costumes) and despite Vicki Gunvalson‘s insistence that everyone is getting along it seems like Gretchen Rossi is having some issues with both Vicki and Heather! Oh, yeah and we finally meet the other OC child support challenged boyfriend: Brooks Ayers!

Frankly, I’m surprised Vicki and Gretchen haven’t bonded over their woes. Apparently, Vicki’s children are less than thrilled with her new beau and some of the other women are concerned about how fast the relationship is moving hot on the heals of her split from Donn Gunvalson!

Tamra Barney and her soulmate/bathtub porno partner Eddie Judge are still together but there are some hurdles as “free bitch” Tamra has difficulty settling down and apparently lets another man touch her boob! Hey, she is the hottest Housewife! And taking a cue from the totally believable and awesome Real Housewives of New York storyline, there appears to be some sort of Tamra-related pregnancy scare. Oh, please…

Finally it seems that Gretchen and Tamra are able to put the past behind them and mend fences as we see Tamra apologize to her former nemesis, but will Gretchen and Tamra’s new-found closeness interfere in her relationship with Vicki?  The brief preview clip is below!

In other RHOC news, the new girl in the gated community recently introduced herself with a “Five Things You Don’t Know…” segment in Us Weekly! Heather, a former beauty queen, is originally from NYC and majored in Theater at Syracuse University where she aspired to be a Broadway actress! When an audition sent her to LA she “never looked back.”

She has since appeared in several TV roles on shows such as Married With Children! And despite being a full-time mom, she tries to fit in acting, joking that she “still [does] a pilot every year that doesn’t get picked up.”

Heather met her husband Terry Dubrow, a plastic surgeon, on a blind date. Terry is also a Reality TV veteran that appeared on such gems as The Swan and Bridalplasty. Of her family life Heather says, “My husband and I are very down to earth people. We’re not defined by where we live or what we have. We’re just normal people and we’re incredibly grateful for what we have and each other.” We’ll see about that! A photo of Heather, Terry and their four children, below.

Finally, it seems that Vicki and Jesus Barbie, original flavor, Alexis Bellino have made up! Alexis recently posted a photo of Vicki, Brooks, herself, and her king husband, Jim Bellino on her Facebook page under the caption: “It’s gonna be a great season!” The photo is below.

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 premiers on Bravo, February 7th at 9/8c.

The first season finale of The X Factor aired last night and a new winner was crowned!

So, who won the highly coveted $5 million prize? The lucky winner was  19-year-old Melanie Amaro! Melanie beat out her fellow finalists – Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik to take home the ultimate prize.
