Reality Tea


As the divorce-annulment drama between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries heats up, Kris continues to fire back at his wife of 72-days!

A day after filing for annulment on the grounds of fraud, TMZ is now reporting Kris feels he was nothing but a pawn, simply used by Kim for her E! reality show.

Sources tell TMZ Kris feels “he was just slotted in the plot line of Kim Kardashian‘s latest headline and newest business venture.”

TMZ adds that Kris, 26, now believes Kim, 31, never intended to stay married to him and only needed a groom to boost ratings for her show — Kourtney and Kim Take New York. One source states: “Once they were finished taping, she just didn’t need a groom anymore.” Indeed, Kim filed for divorce not during taping of the show but immediately after filming ended.

Kris is reportedly outraged that some of the public believes he was in on the wedding scam. A friend of Kris states, “He would have never flown in his childhood pastor to marry them and involve his church.”

Kris also feels Kim’s own statement (the one she posted on her blog the day she filed for divorce) proves his point. Back on Oct. 31, Kim wrote: “I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up in the hoopla and the filming of the TV show.”

And just moments ago, Kim fired back once again at Kris also via TMZ. Kim, err “sources” close to Kim rather tell TMZ Kris’s claims can’t be true because “she and her mom are marketing geniuses, so why would she set herself up to be skewered in the media by dumping her husband after only 72 days?” Folks we can’t make these things up, but my answer to Kimmie is that she and her mother foolishly underestimated the backlash they would receive.

Kim is also telling friends that Kris’ latest move is “pathetic,” adding, “Why fight over any of this?”

Perhaps a reason for Kris’ sudden urge to fight back is this week’s cover of Star magazine and other numerous negative stories the Kardashian camp continues to plant about him in the press… in hopes of making him a villain and Kim a victim.

On this week’s Star cover (posted below), sources close to Kim claim the marriage fell apart because Kris is gay and apparently refused to touch her after their honeymoon. Yes they went there. Even better, this comes just weeks after the same sources were claiming Kris cheated on Kim with other women. A rep for Kris, however, denies the tabloid rumor telling the NY Post that Star Magazine’s story is “completely false and ridiculous. He is not gay.”

It appears the Kardashians continue to remain desperate to paint Kim as a victim as pretty much all of their previous attempts have failed. This includes the premiere episode of KKTNY which actually backfired as it showed Kris as being in love with his wife, while Kim was rather short with him.

In fact, Kim’s actions on that episode is also causing some new drama. See in one of the scenes, Kris ends up ruining Kim’s pedicure while roughhousing with her and a very annoyed Kim punches him in retaliation. Dr. Drew Pinsky who saw the footage stated that he considered Kim’s actions to be domestic abuse. Wowzers.

“What you are seeing there is domestic violence,” said Dr. Drew as he played the clip for his “Lifechangers” audience to see. “A lot of people watching this may not understand this, and I get that. It looks playful. What’s the big deal? It is a massive deal and it’s important.”

Dr. Drew added that his main concern was the message Kim’s actions are sending to viewers. “It’s important for everyone else,” he said. “For Kris and Kim, they’re separating. That’s over with. This doesn’t need to be reported or anything, but anybody listening at home and viewing this has to understand the spectrum of domestic violence, and this is incontrovertible evidence of someone engaged in a domestic violence relationship.”

He also added that Kim’s actions shouldn’t be excused due to her small size compared to NBA player Kris. “It’s illegal, and it goes to a bad place,” he stressed. “It progresses. It starts and goes — it doesn’t stay right there. The size, gender does not matter. It goes to a horrible, horrible place.”

Interesting. Did Kim cross the line with her punch? We’ll let you be the judge. The clip of the punch is below.

The crazy continues with the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and even though the cameras aren’t rolling sisters-in-laws Melissa Gorga and Teresa Guidice are at it again!

While Teresa has been busy filming Celebrity Apprentice, Melissa has taken the opportunity to make the media rounds and do some interviews about her music “career”, her family and of course the show — specifically how she gets along with Teresa! Speaking to Fishbowl NY at Michael’s restaurant in NYC, Melissa again talked about the season three reunion and the Posche Fashion Show drama that will air in season four.

“We had just had a huge blow up the night before, and that was what was on everyone’s mind. It was so hard not to say anything. That’s why Jacqueline [Laurita] wasn’t there,” she explained about the season three reunion. “It was very confusing for us, and we were constantly trying not to say things about things that hadn’t aired yet.”

“Bravo is so sorry they shot them back to back,” she expects us to believe. “I don’t think they are ever going to do that again.” As for what happened, Melissa simply states that Teresa “tried to set me up”, claiming she is back to her “old tricks.” All of this is interesting because in several recent interviews featured on Reality Tea, Melissa has claimed the sisters-in-laws are in a better place now, getting along well and working on their relationship. She also said the show has “brought them closer together.”

This sudden change of heart wouldn’t have anything to do with a recent interview given by her ex-boss, Angelo Vrohidis, who claims Melissa was a stripper? In that same interview Angelo says Teresa had nothing to do with Melissa’s past being exposed.

Melissa goes on to add that her husband Joe Gorga, finds Teresa’s behavior “disgusting” but of course Melissa insists she is supportive of her husband’s family coming together. “The children don’t know about any of this stuff and they don’t care. They just want to be together. They really love each other. That’s what I don’t get. Why does she [Teresa] think I’d want to keep my husband away from his family? It makes no sense,” Melissa mused.

While denying that Teresa is “jealous” of her, Melissa is confused about why Teresa is bothered by her success. “I don’t know why it bothers her that I’m doing what I’m doing as a result of the show. It doesn’t take anything away from what she’s done. I think it bothers her that I even exist!”

Melissa conducted another interview with Mommyhood to Hollywood (wait – she’s a Hollywood Mom?) where she calls her relationship with Teresa a “work in progress”and again stresses it’s all about the children. “I know in my heart that I have done everything I can do to help her relationship with her brother and from this point on it’s between the two of them,” Melissa revealed.

The controversy continues for the hopeful pop star as AllAboutTRH blog (the same site that interviewed Melissa’s ex-boss) recently received an email from a person affiliated with Melissa’s publicist. Melissa is represented by “Illumination PR”. In this email, written by Will Love an entertainment reporter, he has some interesting things to say about Melissa! Including that he met Melissa when her publicist, Robyn, gave him an opportunity to meet the infamous “furtive confidante” of Danielle Staub at the 2010 Posche Fashion Show (featured in season 3).

Will goes on to describe Melissa as rude and claims that her inner circle (her sisters, I suppose) refer to her as “Lady Gorga.” Oh lawdy! Will also claims that Melissa, along with her sisters and Robyn, had a vendetta against Teresa! He claims Melissa and Robyn blacklisted Teresa, along with Kim D from a “Fashion & Beauty Week” Charity night and attempted to convince Bravo not to film the annual Posche Fashion Show in lieu of this event.

You can read the email in its entirety at AllAboutTRH and decide for yourself what you think. I’m inclined to believe there is some truth to it, but also some embellishments.

Moving on Teresa has apparently been thriving in her new gig, Celebrity Apprentice and according to her Tweets is getting along famously with Donald Trump Jr, Aubrey O’Day and Lisa Lampanelli! Anyone else disappointed about that — I was hoping for some drama!

Teresa recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where they discussed RHONJ, of course, and Teresa revealed she hasn’t spoken to Melissa “in months.” Regardless, Teresa is confident that her family will be okay and after reassuring Wendy that she loves her brother, she added “we’re going to get past all of this.” Teresa said she spent Thanksgiving with her husband, Joe Giudice‘s family.

But Teresa isn’t all that focused on family drama for the moment, because her third cookbook Fabulicious: Fast & Fit is in production and she has been promoting overtime! Teresa recently did a photo shoot for the upcoming book, which she advertises contains “sexier food.” She also released a preview of some of the recipes on her website.

“I thought you’d like to see some of our behind-the-scenes shots. Here are a couple of pictures of me prepping food, and me and my girlfriends. (I’m sooo happy to report my new cookbook is completely Housewife-free! If you can’t take a joke, you’re “fired”!),” she wrote.

And proving that she’s still Teresa underneath it all she Tweeted that the power went out during the shoot, but things got back on track when they found a generator, “Thank you Jesus!…Sign of the Cross backwards…” Ok, that’s funny — admit it!

Photos from Teresa’s shoot are below. Fabulicious: Fast & Fit hits stores in May 2012, apparently you can pre-order it on Amazon RIGHT NOW. Hurry!

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS MELISSA SINCERE ABOUT WANTING HER FAMILY TO COME TOGETHER OR DOES SHE CRAVE FAME? THOUGHTS ON WILL LOVE’S SCANDALOUS EMAIL? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT FABULICIOUS: FAST & FIT?

While the first season of Basketball Wives: L.A. has come to an end, that doesn’t mean that any of the ladies have gone away. Gloria Govan recently sat down with VH1 to discuss the insanity that is Jackie Christie and her concerns about her sister Laura Govan’s reputation.

Gloria also shares her future film aspirations (she can’t be a reality star forever, right? Thankfully) and compares the Los Angeles women with their Miami counterparts. Oddly, she forgets to mention that very few of the ladies (East Coast or West Coast) are actual wives…

Excerpts from the interview are below.

In the final episode, what did you guys do after you all left the restaurant after meeting with Jackie?

We stood outside the restaurant for like ten minutes and were just kinda like “What in the hell?” in the parking lot. We were all confused and they obviously didn’t show everything, but we were like, this girl is crazy. She kept saying “Y’all need to be truthful! Y’all don’t even know what you’re talking about!” But we were like “We made a chart,” we showed up an hour early at the restaurant to make sure we were all on the same page, and when she came in, you know, we were like “Oh my God,” because honestly when we left Hawaii, we were afraid. We thought she was gonna pop out in the parking lot and attack. We were freaked out, seriously. It was to the point where we were asking for security. All of us were like, she’s crazy! And all she kept saying was “Y’all gonna be sorry, you don’t know who you’re messing with, y’all gonna be sorry,” and we were like, “This girl’s got like eight personalities.”

I think Malaysia was the one who joked that she was off her meds, did you actually think that too?

I was always like “Oh, Jackie’s just sensitive, whatever, it’s fine,” but there was that one point where I was like “She needs to be checked out,” dead serious, she needs medical attention. We were actually thinking about looking to get her into a psych ward and get tested.

Was it weird to you that Jackie went from like, den mother who everyone looked up to to the crazy one, and Draya went from the outsider to, you know, someone everyone ended up liking in the end?

Yeah, it was kind of crazy how everyone switched roles. Even Malaysia and I went from not really liking each other to her, you know, finding her walk with God and she really came into her own, and Imani, she didn’t like me either, she was one of the ones who was like “If I don’t like your sister, I might as well not like you” and I was like “Imani, I’m the only one here that you knew, I introduced you to Laura!”

Did you worry at all about [Laura], that her reputation preceded her and she’d get some heat?

Yeah, I definitely thought that I’d have to spend at least the first half defending her, coming from Miami and all those assumptions and that scrutiny. I was prepared for that, but then again, knowing Imani, and Laura having known Jackie, the only two that I was worried about were Malaysia and Draya. I didn’t know them, they didn’t know my sister, that was the only time that I was on edge. But in terms of working with her, it was hilarious. We shot a lot together and we’d always laugh. The crew had to be like “Come back to us, focus up!” It was classic.

What did the rest of your family think of you doing another series after you had such a tumultuous time on the Miami show?

They know I’m a strong person, obviously very hard-headed at times, but I think with my sister on board, they knew we wouldn’t do anything to ruin our family values or our reputations or anything like that. They were way more supportive. And they know I want to get into films, so they were like take this as an opportunity.

How’s that going?

Auditioning has been amazing, I’ve gotten some callbacks, and just the opportunities I’ve gotten through sponsors and appearances have been great. This is a stepping stone, I’m not going to be a reality star forever, so it’s been good.

How different is this cast from Miami?

So different. I think, first of all, we all have kids, so I think for a lot of us, our priorities are different. I think that’s why we filmed so long, we all had other commitments and our priorities were different. And also, we may not all have guys, but a lot of us still have to deal with them to a certain degree because we have kids with them, so I think that comes out in how we approach certain situations. Because we ARE moms, we aren’t going to be throwing water week in and week out. We’ve had our boiling points, obviously, but it wasn’t like a constant occurrence for us because we were like “No, I’m a mom and my kids aren’t going to look at me like I’m stupid.” I think that’s the main thing that distinguishes us from Miami.

So, let me get this straight… Jackie’s a bit off her rocker, the other girls are getting along just peachy, Gloria’s the next Eva Longoria star of stage and screen and the main aspect that separates the L.A. ladies from Miami is that the ladies of Los Angeles acted less “stupid” due to having children? No words.

THOUGHTS ON GLORIA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU THINK THE MIAMI CAST ACTS WORSE THAN THE LADIES OF L.A.? HOW WOULD YOU COMPARE THE CASTS?


Cindy Barshop is closing shop! The one-season former Real Housewives of New York fan failure is apparently undergoing some serious financial strain since losing her position on the popular reality show. You know what they say – don’t count your chickens before they hatch!

The New York Post is reporting that the vajayjay wax diva at the helm of Completely Bare Spas and creator of the vajewel (ew) blew a ton of money opening “pop-up” salons around the country banking their success on her celebrity status as a Housewife. But as you know her run on the show didn’t pan out so well! Following her firing Cindy has been forced to close four of her new Completely Bare locations: two in Manhattan, one in Atlanta, and another in Beverly Hills due to financial strain. Interesting that all of those locales coincide with current Housewives franchises.

“[Cindy] made a lot of financial investments into the salon when she signed on for ‘Housewives,’ ” a source reveals. “But when she left, she didn’t have the platform.” Additionally, the gossip snoopers at The Dirty are claiming Cindy erroneously banked on a friendship with fellow-firee Jill Zarin to keep her on the show “for years to come.”

According to their sources Cindy used her first Bravo paycheck as “collateral” to open five more salons across the country, four of which are now shutting their doors. Indeed Completely Bare’s website confirms there are only two remaining spa locations. Cindy’s storyline on RHONY was supposed to focus on expanding her business nationwide, but it never received much airtime due to all the other drama occurring.

The Dirty also reveals that Completely Bare’s Beverly Hills locale was “shut down by the building owner after she didn’t pay rent for 3 months.” Cindy shared that office building with Dr. Ray 90210, by the way. She also lost two of her NYC spaces when she was evicted her for failure to pay rent. And allegedly her 5th avenue supplier is refusing further deliveries because she owes them $7,000.

Cindy’s employees are claiming her financial issues are so dire some of them do not even receive full paychecks because their wages are too high for the current “budget.” If you recall Cindy is also being sued by a former employee who claims she was unfairly compensated because of her race.

It seems Cindy is very in over her head; the single mom of twins admitted on RHONY that she employed around 14 personal staff to help manage her household, children, and personal needs. Perhaps Cindy needs to trim the bush… (Which is my cheap euphemism for “trim the fat”)

Well Cindy is calling foul on the gossip and denying rumors of financial disrepair. She claims the closed locations were never intended to be open for more than a year. Explaining the location of one of her NY salons was taken over by Equinox gym. “They didn’t close because we’re in financial distress,” she told the NY Post. In fact the waxtress is in the process of opening a 5,000-square-foot, $1.5 million salon in Roslyn, Long Island.

Cindy reveals things are going so well for her that she is developing her own reality show! Cindy is reportedly “in talks” with networks for a new show that centers around her Completely Bare spa. The Dirty claims the show is being personally funded with money she doesn’t have as a “last-ditch” effort to save her empire which melting faster than hot wax! So… yeah, a show about waxing crotches… I predict some high ratings there!

THOUGHTS ON CINDY’S PREDICAMENT? ARE YOU SURPISED? DO YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN WATCHING CINDY’S NEW REALITY SHOW?


After some time off from Survivor, given last week’s “highlight reel,” we resumed last night with just as much drama and backstabbing as you’d find at a middle school girl’s cafeteria table.

The Te Tuna (mainly Coach) returns to camp ecstatic that the Savaii has been picked off one by one. Cochran is thankful for being adopted into the former Upolu tribe. He’s aware he is the seventh in a seemingly six strong alliance, but I’m certainly not counting him out seeing as he’s gotten this far.

Cochran is trying to solidify his place in the group by telling stories of his youth when he would prank call girls discussing sperm. Sophie is starting to think that maybe he’s not such a victim because he is proud of making such a bold move in the game. While Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants prays over the group, Cochran compares his new “family” to the Mansons. He calls them together to remind them of his sacrifice and he hopes that, with his birthday nearing, they will spare him now that it’s all about voting off their own. Coach wants to keep Cochran, but Sophie is keeping her loyalty to Edna.

The infamous Anna Benson continues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!

TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1′s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.

Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.

ANNA BENSON CLAIMS BASEBALL WIVES ARE CLASSIER THAN BASKETBALL WIVES!

Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.

TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!

Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANNA’S CRAY-CRAY BEHAVIOR? DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIERE? WHAT DID YOU THINK?


Divorce? What divorce? NBA player Kris Humphries would rather pretend his marriage to wife of 72 days, Kim Kardashian, never happened.

Today, Kris, 26, finally responded to Kim’s divorce filing by seeking an annulment from her. Kris wants to erase his quickie marriage on the grounds that Kim defrauded him into marrying her.

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ that Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, a.k.a. he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show. The insiders reveal while Kris wanted and thought he had a genuine marriage, Kim was never really on board.

TMZ adds that this divorce is quickly getting nasty because Kris also wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.

Kim is, however, not wasting any time firing back at Kris, with Kim herself “sources” close to her insisting to TMZ that she really loved Kris and the marriage was legit, despite falling apart in just 72 days.

Kim is telling others she originally wanted an annulment and filed for divorce after being told it was her only legal option. Kim is also claiming Kris and her discussed annulling the marriage before she filed for divorce, but were advised there was no legitimate grounds for an annulment.

KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN ANNOUNCES SHE IS 9 WEEKS PREGNANT WITH BABY NO. 2!

TMZ states that under California law, annulments are only granted with proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud. Kris’s papers state that in the case he’s denied an annulment, he wants a legal separation – and not a divorce. However, some legal experts are stating it will be very difficult for Kris to prove fraud in court.

I have to wonder if Kris’ annulment filing had anything to do with the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. In a review I wrote before the show aired, I stated that Kris seemed to truly love his wife, appearing like lovesick puppy, while Kimmie seemed pretty much over the marriage. She was quick to get angry with him and seemed more concerned with creating good TV drama by agreeing to move in with her sister Kourtney and her family.

Meanwhile, sources close to Kris tell the HollywoodLife blog that a reconciliation with Kim is completely out of the question. “Kris is no longer heartbroken and he’s ready to move on,” reveals the source. “His main focus is basketball and he has been hustling for contract opportunities.”

Kris is now reportedly “trying to show teams he’s no longer associated with the Kardashians, so they aren’t influenced negatively by his outside issues.”

And finally, just moments ago, E! tweeted a photo of Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom on a set filming promos for the second season of their show — Khloe & Lamar.

So folks, it appears immediately following this season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, we will get season two of Khloe and Lamar, and then the 125th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians which is currently filming at the moment. Le sigh. These people are never going away are they? The behind-the-scenes photo is below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?


Like it or not, there will be a second season of the Real Housewives of Miami!

Even better, Adriana De Moura confirms season two is set to begin filming in a few weeks, but not without a big shake up!

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana reveals season 1 cast members Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will NOT be returning. “Larsa and Cristy are out,’’ states Adriana. “Producers didn’t want this to go in a Basketball Wives direction. We’ll portray Miami the way it should be portrayed.’’ Ouch!

So who will be the new housewives taking their places? Adriana has no idea though she assures us almost everyone in Miami is vying to be on the show.

“It’s so funny, when we aired, everyone said, ‘Oh that show is so bad. I don’t even watch it,’ she says. “But when they were casting, all of a sudden — I’m not going to mention names — but now half of Miami wants to be in it.’’

MARYSOL PATTON EXPLAINS WHY THE FIRST SEASON FLOPPED!

Adriana once again defends her show and the lackluster first season. She explains the first season didn’t work because Bravo never meant for the series to become a Real Housewives franchise. Indeed, the show was originally intended to be a Miami Social knockoff, but became a Housewives franchise during the editing process.

“That’s why we had shorter episodes and all that foolishness,’’ says the optimistic Adriana. “Now we’re hoping to beat Beverly Hills!’’ Umm let’s not get ahead of ourselves now Adrie!

With filming set to begin in about six weeks, Adriana states she alongside Marysol Patton (Yay for Mama Elsa!), Alexia Echevarria and Lea Black will be returning.

Larsa’s departure is not much of a surprise as she reportedly moved back to Chicago with her husband Scottie Pippen and their family earlier this year.
