Reality Tea

Gretchen Rossi pink bikini

Gretchen Rossi and her bikini hit the beach this weekend on day three of her Bahamas getaway with Slade Smiley.  The former(?) Real Housewives of Orange County star grabbed her teeny pink bikini and did a little impromptu photo shoot in the sand. 

Gretchen and Slade are in the Bahamas for a celebrity golf event thrown by Access Hollywood.  Besides splashing and posing in the water, the two really are playing golf, as well.  They were photographed playing a few rounds and taking a cruise in their golf cart. 

No shade being thrown here..Gretchen looks damn good!  My only question she really THAT orange?  I'm looking at her heel in this top photo and wondering if that's how light her skin is under the spray tans? Or is that the light/sand/something? 


Bridgehampton Polo Club 17th Season

Y'all know ol' Jillousy Zarin is over the moon with all the Bravo firing rumors.  For such a long time, Jill has been stewing over getting the ax from Real Housewives of New York, and now she may actually have some peeps with whom to commiserate even if they are all on the east coast.

With the buzz that Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi have been booted from Real Housewives of Orange County, Jill is making the rounds to chat about "the signs" that occur behind the scenes when a housewife is about to be let go.  She should know, right?



A Housewife will hawk just about anything!  From cookbooks to hair care, these ladies are all about putting their name on a product.  However, what about the stuff that they use before they put their names on something? When fans compliment these women on their hair or their skin or their donkey booty, the housewives got these from a particular product…and not one that they created themselves!  

It's only after they are recognized for this attribute that some handler believes it's a good idea for said housewife to create her own line of butt-lifting underwear/press-on nails/horse shampoo/insert product here.  Am I right?  Let's take Lisa Hochstein from Real Housewives of Miami, shall we?

'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' stars Joe and Teresa Giudice have pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges.

The last thirty minutes of tonight's season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey was an interview with Joe and Teresa Giudice, talking about their federal fraud charges for the first time since the news broke.

Andy Cohen explained at the beginning of the interview that many questions were off limits per their attorneys, but he did get a surprising amount of answers out of the Giudices.  They opened up about everything from who they'd leave their kids with (Joe says NO WAY to the Gorgas), whether or not they blame the show for their troubles (yes), if they feel they've lived beyond their means (no) and so so much more! 

The interview was taped about four weeks after they were charged.  Andy starts out by asking what the last month has been like.  Teresa says, "I'm not happy about it. I'm sad.  I can't believe this is happening to us. It feels like a dream and I have to be strong. For my husband and my children.  I'm trying to do the best I can." 


Melissa Gorga

Melissa Gorga's new book "Love, Italian Style" hit shelves last week and has been getting an avalanche of negative press, not just for the bad writing, but for the terrible advice, too.

Among the pearls of wisdom Melissa and Joe Gorga dispel is that your man needs sex whether you want it or not and if your woman isn't in the mood, just rip her clothes off and make her in the mood. Some critics of the book felt that Melissa's husband calming tactics promoted marital rape! Not only that they called into question Joe's aggressive temper and wondered if it pointed to abuse. Oh my…

Since the Real Housewife of New Jersey star has a book to sell and teenaged girl fans to appease she quickly dismissed the criticism and claimed that her words were twisted by the media for some press. "That word is so disgusting to me and that's horrible," Melissa seethed to E! News.


The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 5

As always, it has been a hectic week for reality TV news, filled with ups, downs, and crazy drama.  Real Housewives of New Jersey dominated the news this week.  First, all charges in the Posche 2 brawl were dropped, and an epic Jac Twitter rant ensued

Also, the press surrounding Melissa Gorga's new book Love Italian Style has been largely negative. Melissa expressed her disappointment on Twitter.

Finally, in Real Housewives of New Jersey casting news, Caroline Manzo quit,  Kathy Wakile was downgraded to friend,  and Jacqueline Laurita was fired.  More photos, recaps, and reality news:

As we gear up for NeNe Leakes' second wedding to Gregg on I Dream of NeNe, the couple has a lot of issues to resolve before they walk back down the aisle.  Between prenups and drama with Gregg's grown children, the couple certainly have some work to do with Dr. Jeff.  Thankfully, NeNe and Gregg have a strong support group in their wedding party…or do they?

Both the Neenster and Gregg discuss their friends in their respective Bravo blogs, and Gregg expresses his appreciation to his "basement ballers" for standing by him as he works to get his family back together.  NeNe writes, "My lunch date with some of my Atlanta Bridesmaids: This was supposed to be a Sex in the City lunch with my girls to celebrate my getting married again. Diana Gowins is a longtime girlfriend of mine with whom I've shared a lot. We have been really close over the years. I love her like a sister! We like to call her the protective one, the security, the gate keeper, and Miss Territorial because Diana always questions when someone new is around. She has an uncomfortable attitude when new people are introduced into our circle."
