Oh my good gracious. Y'all know how I feel about the ladies of MTV's Teen Mom franchise, but I'll let you in on a little secret. I've always held out hope for a slightly normal life for the first cycle's Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. The couple chose adoption for their daughter on their episode of 16 & Pregnant, and they have faced multiple relationship and socio-economic hurdles with grace and maturity.
Both Catelynn and Tyler came from backgrounds where the cards were already stacked against them, but the pair seems determined to beat the odds. Despite family drama (his jailbird dad married her addict mom–and that relationship was nothing short of abusive), the two graduated high school and started working towards college degrees. Now, they are moving their issues to MTV's sister network. Le sigh.
Speaking to Fox & Friends, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star shares that she was certain she wasn't going to get cast on the show when she told producers, "These are real [gesturing to her boobs] and I love my husband." Surprise, surprise she made the cut. And the rest is history!
"I never envisioned in a million years it would turn into what it is; lots of heartache, lots of insanity but lots of really great things. So I have no regrets." And the show has certainly brought a lot of opportunities to all the women. Caroline's motivation for writingLet Me Tell You Something actually came from viewers.
Casting for season 4 has reportedly been in upheaval as Bravo seeks to revamp the show and bring on more big-money Beverly Hills names. Many had speculated Marisa would not be coming back after she confirmed she had not invited to the RHOBH reunion.
Calling the show an "incredible journey" Marisa takes the time to reflect upon what she has learned and update us on her relationships. She also personally thanks bloggers (including Reality Tea!) and fans directly for supporting her and offering constructive criticism.
"This is my final blog and I want to dedicate it to all of you that have supported me immensely throughout this experience. I really appreciate the time you took to write me and share your perspectives; you have given me some really great advice. I also appreciate the constructive criticism because it helped me think about the choices I have made and the things I have said," Marisawrites.
Oh my, oh Si! I seriously cannot get enough of the Robertson family, and I am so excited to share more of this fabulous group with the wonderful RT readers. The fan favorite seems to be Uncle Si, although I have a soft spot in my heart for Jase. Poor Willie seems to be the brunt of the family's good-hearted ribbing, with Phil doling out the most deadpanned advice. Honestly, I wish other reality families would take note (cough, cough Kardashians!).
Today, we get to delve a little behind the scenes of the Robertsons, and the executive producer of the Duck Dynasty shares just why this show works so well. Enough chatter from me…let's get to it, shall we?
Faye Resnick has made some serious frienemies! Far beyond her appearance on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this year (which has been met by massive disgust by viewers), Faye has allegedly been bullying and manipulating all over Beverly Hills.
Faye's friend Daniel DiCriscio, who became friends with her through her Playboy spread following the Nicole Brown Simpson murder, reached out to Reality Tea with information. Among the interesting comments Daniel shares, he says Faye has claimed for years that she isn't after fame! Odd considering she seems willing to do anything for the camera now!
Hey, y'all! Remember last week's Dance Moms when Abby Lee Miller was slightly supportive of her dancers? Yeah, that was short lived! Last night's episode had a bitter Abby back to wreck her talented troupe's self-esteem. Good times!
The girls and moms enter the studio, and Abby is actually happy and proud of the girls' performance at last week's competition. This week, the dancers are headed to compete in Michigan. During the pyramid, Brooke is on the bottom, and Abby is livid that she talked to Nia when she forgot her routine. Abby gets even angrier when Kelly laughs at her daughter's mishap, and she dismisses Brooke from for the competition. MacKenzie is also on the bottom for not resting her injured foot. Nia's outstanding Rosa Parks performance is also on th bottom, and all Abby can say is that Rosa herself would have been proud. So then why is she on the bottom? Kendall rounds out the bottom. Chloe and Paige are on second row for a winning duet. Maddie is on top, and Abby believes she deserves a standing ovation.
Kendall receives a solo, and Abby wants her to work on stamina. Chloe also gets a solo. She has the two run in place silently. Maddie will be dancing a duet with sister MacKenzie entitled "Run From Mother." The group routine is called "Gold Digga" but that is all the information that Abby is willing to give. Abby explains to the girls exactly what a gold digger is. In the viewing area, Melissa is sporting a wedding band and reveals that she was married the previous Monday in the dress the moms picked out for her. Kelly gushes that she was able to keep the secret given that Paige was in attendance at the ceremony. Melissa shares camera phone shots of the nuptials.
