Reality Tea

below-deck-med-wwhl

The second season of Below Deck Mediterranean is definitely exceeding all expectations. The drama is never ending. From Malia White’s love triangle with Adam Glick and Wes Walton to Hannah Ferrier’s unexpected hookup with a charter guest, there is something crazy happening during every charter.

Lauren Cohen and Max Hagley have stayed out of the fray (for the most part), but that didn’t stop them for sharing their opinions and hinting at what to expect from the rest of the season when they talked with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Tom Sandoval In Vegas

The Vanderpump Rules birthday bonanza continues. This time Tom Sandoval was the guest of honor and he celebrated with the crew in Las Vegas.

Despite the fact that Tom is turning some age in his mid-30’s that didn’t stop him and the crew from partying like it was Season 1 of Pump Rules and he was a mere babe of 28. #Adulting Tom 1, Ariana Madix, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, and Tom 2 headed to Tao where they got crazy and boozed it up, then saw Calvin Harris.

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap

Does anyone else hate it when we don’t get a fresh episode for the week? I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast let alone what happened two weeks ago on Below Deck Mediterranean.

Good thing Bravo is there to catch us up with a quick clip of what’s happened in general: Chef Adam Glick spites guests with onions and also hooked up with Deckhand Malia White before the charter started. Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier did some hooking up of her own with a primary charter guest, which led to Christine “Bugsy” Drake to read her private messages with said guest and tell everyone about it. Bobby Giancola and Max Hagley were happy to help spread the gossip. Lauren Cohen was the only one who stayed on Hannah’s side.

Phaedra Parks

Never has their been a bigger Real Housewives conundrum than Phaedra Parks. One-part preacher’s daughter, one part-convict’s wife, one-part funeral director, one-part stripper’s attorney, one-part pickle connoisseur, one-part southern belle, one-part attorney, one-part aspiring politician, and one-part thong devotee.

With all her shade, crazy facial expressions, and inconsistencies, Phaedra will be missed on Real Housewives Of Atlanta and we are here to give her an official Phuneral By Phaedra in remembrance of her many contributions to the drama in the Bravo Universe.

Shannon struggles with weight and marriage

The first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County season was a rough one for Shannon Beador and it’s clear that the rest of the season will not be much easier. After renewing her vows with her husband (a reality TV rite of passage at this point), Shannon’s marriage is rocky again and she even blamed nemesis Vicki Gunvalson for her weight gain.

It seems like Shannon’s approach has drastically changed since filming wrapped since she is actually taking responsibility for gaining weight and she refuses to mention Vicki by name- which is a stark contrast from blaming her for just about everything to ever happen in the history of the universe.

They’re back – well most of them anyway! Bravo just announced that The Real Housewives of Dallas season 2 will kick off on Monday, August 14, 2017.  Returning cast members Cary Deuber, Stephanie Hollman, LeeAnne Locken and Brandi Redmond will be joined by newcomers D’Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott. The only former Housewife not along for the season 2 ride is Tiffany Hendra.

The press release promises boatloads of crazy as LeeAnne tries to repair her reputation and her friendships and even dabbles in some anger management. We’ll also see a strain between besties Brandi and Stephanie while Cary tries to balance home and work. We will be introduced to neighbors D’Andra and Kameron, who quickly become a part of the drama.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 premiere reminded us all that it’s Vicki Gunvalson’s world and we’re all just living in it. Everything on this show revolves around Vicki. Shannon Beador even had the nerve to blame Vicki for her weight gain, which is absurd. Needless to say, it looks like this season will be a battle of Vicki and Kelly Dodd vs. Shannon and Tamra Judge.

The first episode was full of shit talking, and of course everyone is trying to get the fandom on their side with their Bravo blog posts.

Bethenny Frankel

For the most part, the Real Housewives of New York cast is full of dynamic characters. No matter what you think about Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley, you have to admit that they really bring it as cast members. Excluding some people from that list is my subtle way of saying who the boring ones are. Why are they on the cast when there are so many viable candidates in New York City?

Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
