Reality Tea

Another milestone for Reality Tea as two writers have finally been hired following an intensive search that began a month ago.

Reality Tea continues to grow with March being our biggest month yet. Last month, we received over 729,000 unique visitors with over 3,055,000 page views. In other words, holy moly!

In other to continue to keep the site growing and most importantly, so I can stop carrying my laptop with me to people’s weddings, family outings, & events a la Vicki Gunvalson stop having to work 365 days a year, it was the right time to get some new blood!

Following an applicant pool of over 280 interested writers, I was able to narrow it down to two phenomenal writers! Trust me folks, they are goooood. Below are the bios of the new assistant writer Lauren Rounsville and contributor Mary McClelland -

Lauren – Lauren is an attorney living in South Carolina who has been captivated by all things Beverly Hills, Bravo and Bieber. She loves 80’s sitoms (Benson, Silver Spoons, Magnum P.I.), 90’s country music (the cheesier the better) and the accessibility of pop culture in the (now not so new) millennium. When she’s not reading the latest tabloids, this former first grade teacher loves trying new food, hunting down designer bargains, watching college football, listening to Waylon Jennings, and patiently waiting for Andy Cohen to realize she’s his new best friend, second only to Ben Weiner. Oh, and drinking cheap wine. Duh.

Mary – Mary is an avid collector of vintage clothes, lover of vertiginous shoes, reader of delightful books, and a possessor of a degree in Sociology – the evidence of which now sits sadly and uselessly in a box in her basement. She became an apostate of bitchy gossip from an early age – waiting for her mother’s trips to the grocery store so she could read US Weekly with glee. Other than that she is a mama to a little boy and a basset hound named Theodore Lovely.

Lauren & Mary will begin reporting to duty tomorrow and from here on out, there will be a new byline on top of each story letting you know the author. I will continue to write majority of the stories for the blog.

And in the comments section of this post, please let us know what shows you would like us to cover, what types of stories you would love to see or any other amazing ideas you might have for the future of this blog. Thank you and I can assure you the best is yet to come for Reality Tea :)RT.

It’s official. Days after OK! magazine and In Touch Weekly first reported the news, Reality Tea can confirm that Leah Messer, 19 and Corey Simms, 20 are divorcing.

Leah, star of Teen Mom 2 was photographed above yesterday in her hometown of Elkview, WV as she read over her divorce papers while talking to a friend.

The entire thing was being filmed by MTV for an upcoming episode of Teen Mom 2. Leah appeared pretty emotional in some of the pics and is reported to have broken down and cried some more while walking to her car.

And if that wasn’t proof enough, Starcasm points out that Leah and Corey’s divorce filing was reported by their local newspaper the Gazette-Mail on Saturday.

The newspaper posted the names of those who got marriage certificates or divorce filings between April 8-15, 2011 and Leah and Corey’s name was on the list of the divorce filings. Leah is the one who filed for divorce following less than six months of marriage.

The couple is said to have separated two weeks ago after Leah discovered Corey withdrew $19,000 from their joint account without her permission, most of which was Leah’s earnings from MTV. You can read more about their reason for divorcing here.

A new episode of the Real Housewives of New York City aired last night and you know something is majorly off when Kelly Bensimon appears to be the lone sane one on the show. The episode brought us a classless Countess, a paranoid Jill, and an equality march that went totally off course with Sonja working overtime to hijack it and equality police Alex working even harder to prevent the said hijacking. Ultimately, Alex became the new Bethenny with most of her fellow housewives ganging up on her.

The episode begins with the ladies meeting up at Sonja‘s home to get ready for the marriage equality march. The “gay icon” – her words – has been asked to be the grand marshal for the event. Sonja, who might or might not have gone to the Nene Leakes school of overblown egos following a season on Bravo, thanks the ladies for coming to support her on her “special day.” Alex is taken aback, rightfully so, and channels her inner RHOM’s Adriana by making it clear she is on the committee! And low and behold, Kelly is the voice of reason when she states in her interview, “So is it Sonja’s day or Alex’s day? I’m not sure but I was marching for marriage equality.” And I’m still not sure how I feel about a medicated and sensible Kelly.

Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her boob job ordeal in a new interview with Life & Style magazine.

In the mag’s latest issue, the Bethenny Ever After star admits she got breast implants but says she had them removed a few years ago. Bethenny states that back in 2005, she was feeling unhappy with her natural 34C. She thought her breasts were way too saggy and approached a plastic surgeon to get a lift.

The plastic surgeon however wouldn’t perform the procedure she wanted. “He told me there would be big lollipop scars if I got a lift,” Bethenny, 40, tells Life & Style. “Being single at the time, I wasn’t comfortable with the idea. He told me he could instead put in a small implant that would give me a lift — not as much as a real lift would but at least a little bit of a lift. So I did it.”

Bethenny says she wasn’t happy with the implants. “I was a D-cup,” Bethenny remembers. “They were still saggy — only now they were bigger! They were saggy and gigantic.”

“I was so uncomfortable. I looked like a stripper,” continues Bethenny. “I don’t think your breasts should be the first thing people notice when you enter a room.”

Bethenny adds that after joining the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City in 2008, she was finally able to afford having the implants taken out.

“The minute I had the money, I was like, ‘Let’s do it,’” says Bethenny adding that she quickly booked an appointment with a surgeon, had the implants removed and went back to her normal size.

“Now I feel comfortable,” says Bethenny. “I feel proportional — and I don’t have saggy boobs anymore. It’s the best feeling ever.” Bethenny adds that her hubby Jason Hoppy is happy with her natural size. “He likes me in a bathing suit and in lingerie — and when I’m naked,” smiles Bethenny.

Interesting comments by Bethenny though her recent photos stemming from 2009 to 2011 still show what appears to be breast implants but we’ll let you be the judge of that with more photos below. Our guess is she might have gotten smaller implants as the above photo of Bethenny in a white bikini from 2009 looks like more than just a lift.

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans walked into a courthouse yesterday in Bolivia, North Carolina and pled guilty to a drug-related charge.

Jenelle arrived to the court with her on-again boyfriend Kieffer Delp, 20, whom she was arrested with back in October after breaking into an abandoned North Carolina house to smoke pot . They were both busted with a bag of marijuana and a pipe.

Jenelle, 19, pled guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and caught a lucky break. According to TMZ, prosecutors gave her a chance to clear her record by performing 24 hours of community service, at which point the charge will be dropped.

As for the other two charges — marijuana possession and breaking and entering — they were dismissed. Jenelle is due back in court in a year.

In other Jenelle news, a new report by Life & Style magazine claims she has yet to learn her lesson as she is apparently open to having another baby.

The reason? To extend her 15 minutes of fame according to those close to her. Her former roommate Tylor Fowler tells Life & Style, “Jenelle craves it,” adding that “if fame were slipping away, she’d do anything to get it back. She’d pop out another kid if she had to!” Another former pal Lauren Casey agrees, telling Life & Style. “She’d definitely get pregnant for the fame.” Yikes.

And finally days after two magazines reported Leah Messer and hubby Corey Simms had separated, neither party has yet to issue a denial. In fact Leah has since taken down her facebook page, and her only new message on her twitter page was to explain that her facebook page had been taken down. The last time a separation was reported, Leah took to her twitter to deny the news.

According to the tabs, Leah and Corey separated two weeks ago and are planning to divorce. OK! adds that Corey met up with his lawyer Tuesday night and the couple visited a court house Wednesday morning to pick up separation and/or custody papers.

Wednesday night on American Idol, judge Jennifer Lopez voiced her support for girl power, making it clear she did not want to see anymore girls going home, and she got her wish.

A week after Pia Toscano‘s shocking elimination, Paul McDonald was eliminated from AI. The 26-year-old Nashville, Tennessee native became the first guy to be eliminated this season following the eliminations of five female contestants.

Joining Paul in the bottom three were Haley Reinhart and Stefano Langone. Stefano, who has been in the bottom many times this season, lived to sing another week.

“We’re bummed about this, man. You’re the life of the party,” said host Ryan Seacrest to Paul after delivering the bad news. “You’ve had such an amazing impact on our show. You really have.”

The remaining top 7 Idols return next week to sing songs from the 21st century. Katy Perry will perform her new single “E.T.” on next week’s results show, wtih season seven winner David Cook returning to premiere his new song ‘The Last Goodbye‘.

While Jill Zarin, star of the Real Housewives of NYC, continues to deny having had any plastic surgery procedures, it is starting to become more apparent that she has.

We were able to dig up the above before and after pic which clearly shows what appears to be a nose job. In fact, Miami Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Balbody.com tells Reality Tea, “It appears that Jill Zarin has had a nose job or Rhinoplasty to narrow and lift the tip of her nose.” Dr. Salzhauer, who hasn’t treated Jill, adds that she “most likely has used dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to smooth out her “laugh lines” and give more volume to her cheeks.”

Others who aren’t buying what Jill, age 47, is selling are her costars. Ramona Singer tells Popeater, “If you see her in the photos, her face looks different. Personally I like her other look better.”

Ramona adds that their fellow housewife Sonja Morgan is also certain Jill has had numerous “injectables” put into her face. “It does make her face look too taut and not as natural,” Ramona says. “Jill overdid it. It’s not the best look. Too much injectables look as bad as a bad face-lift.”

Housewives husband Simon van Kempen also gives his opinion – “I certainly think it’s better to age gracefully than pull yourself so tight that you can no longer show facial expressions.”

As for Jill, she is sticking to her story telling Popeater “If I did, I would be the first to admit it.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHONYC titled “March Madness.” The housewives participate in a marriage-equality march over the Brooklyn Bridge, yet there’s drama with these mamas when tension heats up between Sonja and Alex. Elsewhere, an offensive remark delivered by Ramona spreads back to Cindy.

The episode airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Sonja Morgan and David Arquette.

More legal problems for Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi as it seems she lost her appeal over a ruling requiring her to pay her ex $40,799.38.

According to TMZ, Orange County Superior Court documents show a judge ordered Gretchen to pay the amount in attorney’s fees for ex boyfriend Jay Photoglou right away after several of the claims she made in her lawsuit against him were dismissed.

If you recall, Gretchen also had to fork over $22,000 last year to Jay and his attorney following a similar ruling by a judge. This all stems from Gretchen’s lawsuit against Jay accusing him of defamation. It continues to backfire on Gretchen as the judge continues to rule in Jay’s favor, forcing her to pay his legal fees.

And despite the extremely strong photographic evidence which show Gretchen and Jay were in fact a couple, Gretchen continues to deny the obvious.

She tweeted on Tuesday, “That’s a lie regarding the 40 grand, and he was not my boyfriend as he claims.” Apparently, people who are not dating take multiple photos together in multiple romantic embraces and tattoo the name of their non-boyfriend on their ring finger as Gretchen did in the photo below while still wearing her engagement ring from her now deceased fiance Jeff Beitzel.

The Rumorfix website also backs up TMZ with the court documents dated March 29 showing that not only does Gretchen have to pay the 40 grand, but she has to pay up within 14 days or incur a 10 percent interest rate.

In other OC news, we reported a while back that Vicki Gunvalson has put up her home with soon to be ex-husband Donn Gunvalson up for sale, and now we have the home photos!
