Reality Tea

Alicia DiMichele walking in South Philly

It's that time of the week!  The one where we take a peek at what our favorite (and not so favorite) reality TV stars have been up to.  The one where we see who's been calling the paps, who's begging for red carpet event invites…you get the picture! 

Above: Mob Wives newbie Alicia Di Michele Garofalo invited photographers along as she roamed the streets of South Philly near her boutique.

Below we have Farrah Abraham hitting up a "Real World" event.  (insert the jokes you're dying to share here).  Yolanda's gorgeous daughter Gigi Hadid stopped by a gifting suite, Giuliana Rancic supported Drew Barrymore's new book and Jennifer Lopez celebrated another season of American Idol.  Also spotted: Snooki promoting her new book, Kyle Richards 'candidly' caught on the streets of Beverly Hills, and Joanna Krupa attending a movie premiere.

Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann make seriously cute babies! 

Despite battling the flu, Kim took to Instagram this week to share new pictures of her newborn twins, Kane and Kaia. For the above picture, Kim added, "How I spend my mornings – doesn't get any better than this!" 

Kim recently shared with Life & Style, “Kaia is a diva, honey! She’s much more demanding.  She loves to be snuggled all the time.  And Kane is the easiest baby ever.  Just feed him and change him and he’s happy.  Their personalities are definitely very different.”  Also, the Don't Be Tardy star said she is done having babies, "I finally feel like my family is 100% complete.”

brandi glanville

No really, she does!  It's the title of her weekly tell-all for Bravo!  I feel like I'm moderating a debate, or more accurately a high school mean girls bitchfest. Yesterday, we brought you Joyce Giraud's take on her beef with Brandi Glanville on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and now we're allowing Brandi a rebuttal. She uses her Bravo blog to give her side of the Joyce drama while explaining away her and Carlton Gebbia's behavior at Kim Richards' party. Oh, of course she manages to get in some digs at Lisa Vanderpump, too. Brandi's such a multi-tasker!

She begins, "Carlton asked me and some of her other girlfriends to meet up for a pole dancing lesson before we went over to Kimberly's graduation party. Although Kim and I were not super close at this point, I honestly couldn't remember a time since I've known her that she had hosted anything, so I was definitely not going to miss it. Carlton had a few drinks before our class. I was not on the same level, but almost instantly I starting feeling dizzy and nauseous. I assumed it was motion sickness from the poles spinning. But later I spiked a fever and was throwing up for the next day-and-a-half, so I think its safe to assume I caught some sort of bug and it wasn't just motion sickness." Oh girl. I was born, but it wasn't yesterday!

Continuing, Brandi writes, "We head over to Kim's and I thought it might be a good idea to grab a burger before we went in to hopefully help Carlton sober up a bit and help me to stop feeling so crappy. I feel bad I was ill at Kim's house, but it really couldn't have been helped. It was better that we didn't stay anyhow because Joyce was there in some ridiculous get up and I didn't want to have a confrontation with Miss Attention Seeker a high school graduation party."

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

While Joe Giudice battles simultaneous fraud cases – one for financial fraud and another for identity fraud, his driver's license fraud trial has been postponed again! 

I've lost track of how many times this case has been rescheduled but perhaps prosecutors are waiting to learn the results of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star's federal fraud case before going forward with another trial.

What do you do when your on minute fourteen of your fifteen minutes? If you're a reality star, you could file a law suit?  What happens if your fifteen minutes were over so long ago that no one remembers who you are? I think the answer is clear. You sue American Idol for $250 million. 

At least that is what Corey Clark is doing after getting booted from the Top Ten back in 2003 for allegedly not being forthcoming with information about a prior arrest. He also claimed to have had an affair with judge Paula Abdul, but that isn't why he was disqualified according to the Fox singing competition.

Stop. The. Presses. No, seriously. This is some seriously big news, y'all. Tamra Barney Judge has bangs! I know, I could barely contain my excitement either. Go ahead, cheer–just not so loud that your boss hears you, and you get reprimanded for surfing the web at work. 

The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Instagram to share some pictures of herself stylin' and profilin' with her new face fringe. I'm not a fan of Tamra's behavior, but I must say I think the new 'do suits her. However, several of her followers called attention to the filter she used above…the way her hair is shaded makes her neck look like the crypt keeper! Still, it's cute!

Joe was grinning ear to ear as he flashed the sketches for their new dream home.  One follower had the right idea when they said "I thought it was a mall!".
