Reality Tea

Designer Affair Second Annual Bridal And Design Showcase Hosted By Dina Manzo

Dina Manzo announced her return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast for season 6. 

Dina took to Twitter to share the news this morning.  "Well I guess the (hairless) cats out of the bag. Yes I'm back, Unlike the past this time it felt "right" ~ See you on Bravo my friends xo"

I admit my surprise over the official admission.  Bravo normally loves to keep those rumors flying right up until the season premiere of the Housewives shows, never confirming or denying the new and/or returning cast members.

Another day, another diss aimed at Bethenny Frankel's talk show. Maybe it's time for Reality Tea to create a new category just for bethenny bashing!

Bethenny's talk show debuted in September and has yet to find an audience. It's falling way behind competitors like Queen Latifah, Wendy Williams, and Steve Harvey. Color me not shocked! I don't watch any of their shows, but I have a hunch their guests are a lot more interesting and likable than the likes of Farrah Abraham and Kate Gosselin.

Today's diss suggested that audience members have been complaining about Bethenny's standoffish personality. "She's cold and only walks in when she has to tape and walks out," claimed an inside source. "We're told some guests have even emailed complaints to the producers."

Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Miami was brought to us by Lea Black's boobs. Was it me or were they borderline popping out in every scene? Did she pay a visit to Dr. Boob God recently?

Other than that, Joanna Krupa had a meltdown and threw a soap opera bitchfit which included kicking Lisa Hochstein out of her wedding party. And Lisa cried and whined and meddled and stirred the pot. Really, Lisa needs a hobby. Maybe crochet? 

Lea is creating The World of Lea Black which includes patenting that laugh and every time you open a Lea Black box it bursts out. She's creating handbags and writing books and skin care crap. I really don't know, but I guess it's a full-fledged industry in fabulosity. More power to her because at least she was doing this pre-Housewives so it's not just some schleppy storyline to give her a purpose on the show. Apparently it's a "movement".

Camille Grammer

Camille Grammer is having a rough time lately. Weeks after she announced she underwent a radical hysterectomy for endometrial cancer, Camille took to twitter to reveal she was a victim of domestic abuse.

"Info will come out today that is jaw dropping. And women can’t be silenced after being physically abused!" the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wrote on her twitter on Monday.

big-ang

Mob Wives' Big Ang knows a thing or two about plastic surgery…and vino! Having just released a new line of wines, the "bigger is better" reality star celebrated the launch of her latest venture with friends and family at–where else?–an authentic Italian restaurant in New York City.

Known for her cannonball sized boobs and lips and her role as the voice of reason on Mob Wives, Ang is versed in all things tattooed, tanned, and cocktail related. She is also doling out advice on romantic relationships, which makes sense when you think about it. I'm sure Prosecco served in a bottle decorated with kiss marks and animal print can get anyone in the mood!

Juicy Joe is taking a gamble!  Joe Giudice's driver's license fraud case is officially going to trial on November 19th! 

Joe was in court yesterday afternoon to hash out any final plea deals, but the Real Housewives of New Jersey star turned down several offers over the past few months.  Joe has been standing his ground because those deals all included a hefty amount of jail/prison time and he doesn't feel that's fair when compared to similar cases. 

So, off to trial he goes, leaving his fate in a jury's hands.  Joe faces up to 10 years in prison for the fraud portion of his charges and up to 18 months for forgery.  (both seem like such small potatoes when compared to the 50 years he's facing for the federal fraud charges next year..)

Teresa better getting hustling some more products – their legal bills just keep piling up. 

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JUICY WILL SERVE TIME FOR THIS?

Don't lie. You've missed the crew from Love & Hip Hop. Yeah, I know. I couldn't type that with a straight face any more than you could read it with one. With the Basketball Wives reunion kaput, VH1 treated us to the season premiere of a more yawn-inducing version of the feisty L&HH: ATL. While I'll try to reserve my judgment, I don't think that K. Michelle can save this sinking ship any more than the newbies. It's not that I don't like Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris, but they are almost too likeable. I didn't believe Rich Dollaz and Erica Mena's relationship was anything more than camera candy, so I never invested much thought in them, and don't even get me started on the dysfunction that is Tahiry Jose and Joe Budden. So, about that reservation of judgment promise…I'm not doing so well, eh? 

With the Medicine Man still incarcerated, Yandy has continued to take Little Mendeecees during his dad's custodial times. Both she and Mendecees have decided to tell the boy that his father is serving time…in the army.  I don't even have the chance to type how adorable this child is before Mona Scott Young goes and throws a curveball…she is totally exploiting Little Mendecees by having him share a secret with his soon-to-be stepmom. He reveals that he has known his dad was in jail for months.

Kim Kardashian 33rd Birthday

It's been a big week for Kim Kardashian, y'all!  Not only did she celebrate her thirty-third birthday, but she got engaged for the third time to tiny rapper Kanye West who finally made peace with Jimmy Kimmel (seriously, I am still laughing about that!). If that wasn't enough, new daughter North West debuted this week on Keeping up with the Kardashians. As you could expect, Kim kept it klassy for all of these events.

Let's begin with the show, shall we? Confession time…I. sometimes every once in a while rarely watch KUWTK. I'm not even that ashamed of it. In fact, I tend to find the majority of the family (read: Bruce Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashianwho grates on my nerves like the remaining family members when I read stuff like this–and the Jenner boys) likeable on the show. The entire shiny E! klan is separate and different from the fame lovers I love to loathe in the 'loids. That said, Kim was just plain gross on this week's episode, and I don't give two flying flips about her third (and no, I don't think this one's the charm) wedding.
