Reality Tea

si duck dynasty

As y'all know, I love Duck Dynasty.  In a reality world with name-calling, back-stabbing, hair-pulling, and bed-hopping, I find the Robertsons to be a refreshing change of pace! (Don't get me wrong, I like some drama, too!)  Uncle Si has been the breakout star of the A&E hit.  While he's been everything from a fashion model to an air traffic controller, yesterday Si added author to his list of accomplishments.  His book Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle hit the shelves yesterday.

Si's stories span from days of playing hooky with his brothers to earning good grades in college despite having a hard time making it to class.  He discusses his time in the military, how he met his wife, and the blessing of his two children and eight grandchildren.  

In an interview with the Christian Post, Si talks about why he chose to pen the tome, as well as the strong faith he shares with his family.  Initially, he didn't want to write a book, fearing that he didn't have enough family memories to share with his fans due to his twenty-five years serving in the armed forces.  He says, "I was in the military, so I told my wife that I was never there for the kids when they were growing up. And she said, 'oh yeah you were. Let me go get a photo album.' And she was showing me dressed as a bunny rabbit, rooster, and Santa Claus during Christmas time. Personally, I didn't feel that I was there enough."

However, in true Si fashion, he ended up going for it, lamenting, "They just kept bothering me, so I said, OK."

It's that time of the year again – Dancing With The Stars is in the air! I feel like they need their own carol. It's beginning to look a lot like daaaanc-ing. 

Anyway, enough about that! The cast for the 17th season has just been announced and we're not particularly interested because there's no Housewives strapping on their dancing shoes. I bet Teresa Giudice could have had a chance if not for that little federal indictment. Amirite? No?

Anyway the cast lineup and professional partner pairings are below.

When Joe Gorga wanted to give Melissa Gorga a fun week celebrating her birthday at a spa with her co-stars and family, what she got isn't quite she was expecting. 

Melissa took to her blog this week to share why she was just not into the therapy sessions at Miraval.  Melissa says she's just all therapied out after the weekend in the mountains with Dr. V. 

Melissa shared about this week's episode, "This was a strange one for me.  I’m not going to sugar coat it, when I was told we were going to a spa resort in Arizona to celebrate my birthday, this is not exactly what I pictured. I don’t even think Joe quite understood what Miraval was."

About the horse therapy: "As I said that morning, I honestly did not want to do therapy and healing. Not that I didn’t want to heal our family, I just wanted to relax and for everyone to have a good time and enjoy our vacation. We had just done therapy at Lake George. We needed a break."

Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump Spotted having dinner with a few friends

Yesterday a rumor surfaced that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmates and BFFs Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump were on the outs after reportedly having an epic falling out. 

While we were waiting for a confirmation or denial, these photos popped up, clearly showing that these two are just fine and not bitterly feuding.  

Brandi spent the day shopping at Kyle Richards' boutique with her mom and her friend Jennifer Gimenez Last night Brandi was snapped arriving at Villa Blanca to enjoy dinner with Lisa, Ken Todd, Jennifer, Pandora, and even Giggy!  Oh and Mr. T.  Seriously.

Updated to add: Brandi did respond to a fan asking if she and Lisa were having issues. She replied with "I will always love her but sometimes friends have hic-ups."   So, either there was a little producer-scripted argument or they did have some small disagreement….

Teen Mom is back, y'all, and it's just as depressing as ever. 

Last week on Teen Mom 3 – aka Teen Baby Daddy DramaMackenzie Douthit failed to notice Josh McKee's obvious lack of interest, and Alex Sekella screamed at Matt McCann incessantly.

Also, Katie Yeager accepted Joey Maes's marriage proposal, and Briana DeJesus took legal action against Devoin Austin for cyber bullying.

Oh, and if you turned your TV at just the right angle and closed one eye, you saw the Teen Moms caring for their precious babies almost as passionately as they begged their boyfriends to love them. This week: rinse and repeat.

Poor Ramona Rizzo just can't get a reality TV break! First, no one likes her on Mob Wives and her storyline is ummm…love/hating Drita D'avanzo? Then she gets engaged and her fiance, Joseph Scalfinia, gets locked up for 15 years!

And then, just when she finds a reason to make her TV life interesting and allegedly decides to hold a furlough wedding the feds get wind of her intentions and call the whole thing off. So poof! – no storyline for you, Ramona. So that's life in Ramona-land. 

Prosecutors in Joseph's case feared that he was planning to use a furlough – purportedly to see his dying father – as an excuse to get married to Ramona in front of reality TV cameras. The feds pointed out that the "shotgun wedding" was not only illegal but they believed it was a ploy for a television show. You mean these two lovebirds aren't maaaadly in love?! Wha…
