Reality Tea

Brandi Glanville In Beverly Hills

Oh the holidays. A time to reflect on all we are thankful for. And I suppose I'm thankful for all the crazies reality TV brings to my life. Better them than me, right?! It's also a time for the joy of giving. And reality stars have given us so much. So, so much insanity! 

In order to show our appreciation to the fabulous famewhores who give our TVs life, we decided to promote some of the products they ceaselessly churn out!

We wanted to take a moment this morning to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! 

We hope you have a wonderful day with your families doing whatever it is you do on this day: eating, watching football, shopping online, taking a nap or hanging out here!  We also hope that you don't work retail – or if you do – that you aren't forced to work later today for the early, early, early Black Friday madness! 

We just wanted to take a minute to share that what we're most thankful for today (and every day) is you guys!  We'd be pretty lonely around here without our readers to join us in our reality TV fangirling/fanboying.  Whether you're someone who quietly reads the posts and never comments publicly or you're an avid commenter who can't wait to share your thoughts every day, we're grateful to have you here with us!

We're also thankful for this crazy TV phenomenon called Reality TV.  Here are a few reasons why

Posting will be on the lighter side today so our writers can relax and enjoy some time with their families.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!  I hope you are enjoying the day with family, friends, and a delicious feast!  Me? I'm thankful that last night was the season finale of Preachers of L.A. Just kidding! I've grown rather fond of the men and their first ladies, especially Jay Heazlip, Wayne Chaney, and Ron Gibson's one-liners. Did Noel Jones reconcile with Loretta? How was Deitrick Haddon's second (technically third) wedding? Was Clarence McClendon there? Read on!

The episode begins with Noel dining with Loretta at her restaurant, and she is all dolled up for the occasion. They reminisce about how they met sixteen years ago and how their relationship has grown along the way. Loretta shares the story of the sex toys on fire at Dominique's bridal shower. Noel isn't surprised that the "dil-daws" went up in flames. God isn't a fan of kinky.

Deitrick and his family are singing in anticipation of his upcoming nuptials. His father interrupts the choir practice to discuss how proud he is of his son and the ob-stickles he's faced. Deitrick's dad is a man of few words, but he likes Dominique and blesses their relationship. Deitrick apologizes to his father for asking Noel to officiate the ceremony. His dad did his first wedding, and he doesn't want a repeat of that situation. His father totally understands.

Last night's Shahs of Sunset reminded me how incredibly thankful I am for my friends and genuine friendships based on trust, love, and generosity. 

The relationships between Reza Farahan, Mercedes "MJ" Javid, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi,  Asa Soltan Rahmati,  Mike Shouhed,  and Lilly Ghalichi leave a lot to be desired. To say the least. Yes, this is reality TV, but this particular group (minus Lilly) has prided themselves on being real friends long before they invited Bravo's cameras into their lives. You can call me crazy but I don't see much to be proud of on Shahs of Sunset these days.

To open the show, MJ boasts, "There's a reason why Reza and I are as tight as we are – we just fit. We belong together."  Blah. I still cannot believe MJ let Reza back into her life so easily.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 4

Yolanda Foster is on this season's Richards Sisters S#*! List – and frankly she's confused about their motives, behaviors, and scruples. Aren't we all, Yo! 

In her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog Yolanda discusses the drama at cirque school and why Kim Richards and Kyle Richards are so tricky to deal with.

Yolanda says she was excited about circus school and saw it as an opportunity to have fun and deal with unresolved issues within the group. "I strongly believe that a lot of problems in this group would disappear if we started to talk to each other rather than about each other," she cites.
