Reality Tea

Hot on the heels of the exciting shocking restructuring of Real Housewives of New York, the relieved of their duties housewives: Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Cindy Barshop, and Kelly Bensimon are scrambling to get their opinions heard and convince us that they actually, just quit with amicable parting. Yeah, right! How dumb do they think we are?

“No matter what anyone tells you of course we all wanted to be asked back,”one of the relieved ladies, who wishes to remain anonymous, remarked. “It’s never nice to get fired no matter what job you do. But to be strung along by your boss week after week, pretending the decision had not yet been finalized is just wrong,” she said in response to reports that Bravo execs were placing phone calls to Jill and Alex up until the final moments. Andy Cohen also called the ladies over the weekend, trying to distance himself from the final decision.

And days following the news, Andy finally responded to the controversy via his Bravo blog, stating: “By now you’ve heard the news about cast changes in the RHONY. This was a very tough decision, made with much care and discussion,” he wrote. Then giving props to the people that pay the bills – US – he explained: “In the end we listened to the fans, who expressed a desire for new stories and a major change in a direction.”

While that was as far as Cohen would go in describing the decision to fire certain ladies, it’s rumored that a certain red-headed diva’s demands for a pay raise and filming stipulations were the reason she got the axe! Oh, and that her hubby was completely ovah being apart of the show! And speaking of Jill, she seems to be taking the news in stride – at least publicly!

Writing in her newsletter, which was sent out to fans yesterday (yes, she has some and yes, I get it – for work purposes, of course) she remained aloof, commenting: “There is a lot I want to say and share but I just can’t today.” And after advertising an upcoming appearance, she continues: “I hope those of you in NYC will come and at that time I will be prepared to share what happened and what my future holds. I can’t thank you enough for all of the emails, tweets, facebook comments, letters and even gifts that you have sent to me. I read everything and although I may not be able to respond to everyone, I want you to know I have been brought to tears by all of the love you have sent to me. I don’t want you to worry though…when one door closes….many doors open.”

And according to reports, Jill is somewhat relieved the show has come to an end: “Jill is done with them and ready to move on,” according to a “source.” “If she’s not good enough to return to ‘Housewives’ she has no interest in making returning guest spots or making a surprise secret appearance in the middle of the Housewife season.” Well only time will tell if the seemingly spot-light obsessed, Zarin, makes good on that promise! Jill also revealed that she will no longer be participating in Bravo’s Housewives Tour.

While Jill seems to have many, um… exciting up-coming ventures and is ready to move forward; poor little Alex is absolutely devastated to lose her day job! Friends of the McCords commented that Silex is ”destroyed by the decision and will do whatever she can to make it right,” and “would be happy to continuing working with Bravo in a new capacity.” A source defending the duo lamented: “Alex and Simon have given their lives to making this show a hit and this is how they are thanked. Not fair.” Well perhaps the reason they were fired is that they have no life outside of the show and their storyline became boring, stale, and pathetic!

After tweeting a Twitter campaign to keep them on the show, citing fan support, Alex and Simon formally released their own statement in an US Weekly exclusive confirming that they are disappointed by the news: “After four seasons on Real Housewives of New York City, Simon and I are moving on. It’s a completely friendly departure and while it was their decision and not ours, we are in close communication with both Bravo and the production company about our next move, in addition to fielding outside offers.”

The fame-grasping duo continues: “It was bittersweet to finally get the call last Saturday but we knew it was on the cards. It’s been a bumpy ride; sometimes great and sometimes not, but it’s been an experience that I don’t regret having done.” If you are an Alex fan, don’t fret they will still be working with Aluxe Home hawking bedding!

As for Kelly, the resident crazy, she has let to comment at all or release any statements, she has been tweeting about health and hotness though, so at least we know she’s still kra-kra!

Finally, The new queen bee of RHONY (and the woman many fans are anticipating as being Bravo’s next target for the psychotic b!*ch edit), Ramona Singer, who likely knew who was getting the axe at the time the interview was conducted, recently spoke with fellow anti-Zarinette Lynn Hudson, and the ladies (and I use that term veeerrryyy loosely) teamed up to talk about, well, what else but the recently relieved of her duties, Jill Zarin!

In the interview, Pinot Singer reveals that she is “true friends” with Alex and Sonja Morgan “off-camera”, so she must have fought really, really hard to convince Andy to keep Alex in the line-up, right? And while her relationships with Alex and Sonja may be legit, her relationship with Jill is pretty much quits.

I tried very hard with Jill, but Jill is her own worst enemy, something I have told her many times,” she comments of her former co-star and frienemmy. “This past season the raw emotion between us was very real and the damage that was done was irreversible. Jill is an unhappy person, and clearly having a loving husband, fame and fortune doesn’t necessarily make you happy.”

Speaking about the almost completely forgotten Cindy, Ramona describes her as bad TV: “I enjoyed her one-on-one having dinner and things but she just wasn’t right for the show, some people just don’t do well in front of the cameras.”

Well, we will be looking forward to the upcoming season of fresh, new, Zarin-less drama; and at least we still have LuAnn’s one-liners to infuriate us!

Thoughts on the statements released by the ladies and by Senor Cohen? Do you believe Jill is actually glad to be done with the show? Do you believe this is the last time we will see her on Bravo? Are you excited about Season 5 of RHONY?

On last night’s episode of Basketball Wives LA, it was the wedding of the year for Jackie and Doug Christie. Literally, as they marry every. flipping. year. Gloria’s players get waxed on the court, while Draya just gets waxed, and Imani forges a friendship with Malaysia.

Laura Govan and Jackie Christie meet for an afternoon cocktail, because that seems to be the staple gathering for the L.A. wives/pseudo-wives/girlfriends/exes. Jackie admits to Laura that in addition to the fifteen (with one to grow on) weddings she’s had with Doug, she was married three times prior to him. Jackie wants Laura’s self-confidence to grow after her recent split, and she hopes telling her of the three men who walked down the aisle before Doug’s fifteen times will help Laura realize that the right man is out there for her.

The Tareq and Michaele Salahi cheating saga continues.

The latest with the former Real Housewives of DC stars is the revelation of their prenup. TMZ, who seems to have Tareq on speed dial or is it the other way around? obtained a copy of the prenup which pretty much reveals Michaele is screwed.

According to the prenuptial agreement, if Michaele commits adultery, she automatically loses her right to any money or other property they accumulated during their 8-year marriage. Even worse for Michaele, she’s also forfeited her right to spousal support by moving out of the home they shared. But then again, is Tareq really worth anything these days?

Meanwhile, days after Michaele ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, Tareq revealed the dog he once shared with Michaele has passed away.

According to Tareq, the Doberman Pinscher died of a broken heart. Yes you read that right. The dog was apparently so depressed that he couldn’t get out of bed after Michaele abandoned him. The dog passed away on Sunday.

The dog reportedly suffered a heart attack several weeks ago, and had been on meds ever since. Tareq of course is hysterical and blames Michaele whom he recently referred to as a “groupie slut” in a recent interview.

TMZ also managed to obtain some home videos which shows Michaele laying in bed with the dog just days before she disappeared. I can’t help but wonder whether or not this whole public debacle might be leading to a vomit-inducing sex tape.

And finally, Neal’s wife Ava Fabian who married Neal just two months ago is now speaking out about the affair. Ava, a 1986 Playboy Playmate, reveals she is absolutely devastated over the affair.

Ava, who says she was with Neal right before he went on tour, tells TMZ, “This is very painful for me. I’m very hurt.” TMZ adds that Ava and Neal tied the knot in Paris just this past July. Ava however makes it clear she has no plans of taking Neal back.

The volatile/dysfunctional relationship of Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley continues!

Over the weekend, Gary, 25, revealed he was once again done with Amber, 21, while also accusing her of cheating on him. Gary’s announcement was a bit surprising as the current issue of Star magazine reports he recently got a huge tattoo of Amber’s name tatted on him.

Star reports that while partying in Nashville on Sep. 3, Gary decided to visit a tattoo parlor to get Amber’s name tattooed on his right shoulder.

According to the local tattoo artist, Chris Collins, “Gary said, ‘Amber doesn’t know I’m down here, and I want it to be a surprise.’” Chris adds, “He told me, ‘We’ve been through a lot together, but at the end of the day, I still love her.’”

Well something’s changed since that faithful day as Gary took to his twitter page over the weekend to slam Amber. He tweeted on Saturday, “I’m completely through w amber No more back n fourth shit. I got my precious baby u got your precious anderson men hope your sins r worth it.”

Yikes! He added minutes later, “Moving on I’m bout to kick it with honors with my last night til I get Leah back from grandmas. Thank u mom for everything.” And the very next day, he made sure to tweet about a date: “I got a date tonight. With a girl in Indy… Where to take her?”

Gary also added on Sunday, “Hard to turn u away today, heading u cry was hard but your actions were terrible and this time there was no reason for what u did. No love.”

All interesting but knowing these two, it’s only a matter of time until they are back together a la Ronnie and Sammi from the Jersey Shore. A new episode of Teen Mom airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

The widely anticipated 13th season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night, and it did not disappoint!

There were some surprises and a few let downs when it came to this new group of 12 celebrities. We’ll start off with the show’s most controversial contestant ever Chaz Bono, who has been receiving some backlash due to the fact that he is transgendered.

So how did Chaz, 42, measure up? Not too shabby. Chaz alongside his partner Lacey Schwimmer, gave a pretty memorable first performance which garnered him 17 points for his cheeky and fun cha cha. “Chazzy Boy, you can dance!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Bruno Tonioli added, “So cuddly and cute. Great, great debut, Chaz. You should be proud.”

The best performers of the night were Chynna Phillips, and war veteran turned soap star J.R. Martinez. Chynna sizzled with her graceful waltz, earning her the highest score of the night – 22 points. “You looked like you stepped out of a dream and into my heart,” said Bruno. J.R. tied with Chynna for the high score with his impressive Viennese waltz.

In the middle of the pack were reality stars Kristin Cavallari and Rob Kardashian. Kristin fared a bit better than Rob, receiving a decent score of 19 points for her feisty cha-cha with partner Mark Ballas. Kristin definitely showed some promise with her fiery stage presence! With his famous sisters in the audience cheering him on, Rob failed to impress as he received a score of 16 for his waltz with Cheryl Burke. “I’m not impressed, but I’m not depressed,” said judge Len Goodman.

This season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace also had a so-so debut as the 51-year-old news anchor received 16 points for her sassy cha-cha with newcomer Tristan MacManus. “You got the moves, but you don’t seem to believe in yourself,” said Len.

Below are the full scores from last night -

Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani – 22
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff – 22
Hope Solo & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – 21
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough – 20
Kristin Cavallari & Mark Ballas – 19
David Arquette & Kym Johnson – 18
Carson Kressly & Anna Trebunskaya – 17

In the never-ending saga that is the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the gang heads to Punta Cana and it’s more of the same: drunken antics, terrible trashy clothing, and bickering. To borrow a phrase from the one, the only Juicy: “Shut UP!”

Preparing for a luxurious 5-day kid-free stay in Punta Cana on Bravo’s dime, at The Gorga Marble Compound, Joe, after stuffing his children in a suitcase, begins personally inspecting all Melissa’s stripper bikinis by sniffing the crotch. In front of his mother-in-law and his children he is sniffing the crotch of his wife’s bathing suit while she dangles another hoochie mama confection in front of his face.

At the Giudice marble mansion, Teresa has raided the Victoria’s Secret Swimsuit Catalog from 1993 and is packing every sequined string bikini in the land. Melania takes this opportunity to assault and batter both her sisters. Um… where is Gabriella? Was she taken away by family services or something – I haven’t seen her all season. Maybe she’s already too embarrassed to be participating in this show. Joe promises to try and have a good time – Gia echos what we’re all thinking when she gives him a disbelieving look.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Cast

In today’s not so shocking news, a new report reveals Taylor Armstrong did indeed sell her abuse photos to Entertainment Tonight.

The bombshell report by the NY Post states the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star raked in up to $125,000 for the sale of the photos she says were snapped after a brutal beating by her late husband, Russell Armstrong.

ET released some of the pics last week in a teaser promising to follow up with an actual interview with Taylor this Tuesday. Sources reveal ET wasn’t the only media outlet the photos were shopped to.

“Most shows that were offered the picture did not want to pay anywhere close to that,” says a source. Sources go on to confirm what has been widely reported which is that Taylor is broke and desperate for money. “She’s broke,” added the source. Both Taylor’s reps and ET declined to comment on the story.

As for what we can expect from Taylor’s ET interview with Nancy O’Dell tomorrow, she will reportedly open up on how Russell abused her and what led to the particular incident from which the abuse photos came from.

The HollywoodLife reports that Taylor told ET Russell never hit her in front of their 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. Something Taylor reveals she is grateful for. ET also revealed that Russell tried to change his will six weeks before his death, but never finished. It’s likely that attempted change came about after Taylor filed for divorce.

Following the release of Taylor’s abuse photos, her RHOBH costars are also speaking out about it. “Shocking,” said Lisa Vanderpump to Access Hollywood. “It’s very hard to accept that, to look at that.” Kyle Richards adds, “Very difficult photos to look at.”

Lisa goes on to reveal that she was actually at Taylor’s home the night the alleged abuse took place. “I was with her that night that all this ensued and they looked to be in a good place,” Lisa recalled declining to answer if the couple had been drinking that night. “It was very confusing, their relationship and you see that on the show. … They were in a good place when I left them at 1:30 in the morning. They were in a good place, absolutely.”

When asked about Taylor’s decision to release and sell the photos, Kyle tried to remain diplomatic. “That’s something you’d have to ask Taylor, but I mean, she does have a child to support,” said Kyle.

“She has been left with this crumbling kind of deck of cards of a facade, that not only did she lose the father of her child, her support, her whole lifestyle and everything crumbled around her,” stated Lisa. “So, I think we have to be supportive in whatever choices she makes.”

There are reports that Russell hit Taylor that night after she told him her friends would be going to the cops if she did not divorce him. Following the abuse, Taylor reportedly decided to divorce Russell while in the hospital.

Meanwhile a new episode of the RHOBH airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. On the third episode this season, Adrienne experiences a full-court press when her family must make crucial decisions that could result in their NBA team moving to a rival city. Meanwhile, Kim’s offbeat behavior puts the focus on potential problems in her personal life. A preview clip is below -

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR SELLING THE ABUSE PHOTOS? AND THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine as she opens up to the mag about the reason she gave up her baby.

On the Sept. 13 episode of Teen Mom, Farrah sobbed as she struggled with the decision to leave her daughter, Sophia, with her mother while she attends school in Florida. “I would never leave [my daughter],” said Farrah.

Well fast forward to today and Life & Style is reporting she did just that by leaving the 2-year-old behind in Iowa with her mother Debra Danielson, moving 1,600 miles away to attend school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale while also pursuing her modeling career. Farrah, 20, has been in Florida the past several months and Debra has since become Sophia’s primary caregiver.

In her interview with the mag, Farrah defends her decision. “Sophia is the No. 1 thing in my life,” Farrah says. “I’m just trying to be the best parent that I can. I take care of my responsibilities. I’m happy that I took the chance to move. I would never regret it.”

Farrah also praises her mother Debra for stepping in to help. “My mom is the best grandma,” Farrah says. “I want her [Sophia's grandmother] to be there for Sophia when I need to take care of my responsibilities, my education and earning an income for both of us.”

Farrah however admits she is also using this time to find herself since a number of her teen years were spent being a young mom and dealing with the death of Derek Underwood, the father of her daughter. The mag states Farrah’s “desperately trying to relive the youth she feels she was robbed of.”

“I’ve been trying to grow personally and emotionally,” Farrah admits. “I’m very much taking time to get back to myself and enjoy my freedom.”

But as more days go by, Farrah reveals she often struggles with her difficult decision. “She tells me she misses me and loves me. I’m tugged in many different ways daily — but I don’t want to limit myself or Sophia,” she states. Farrah also admits she doesn’t know when she’s coming back for Sophia.
