Reality Tea


Everybody’s favorite workaholic Housewife, Vicki Gunvalson, is promoting a natural eyelash growth product she helped develop called Cilea Lash and now she is trying to convince us we need to buy it. In a new interview with radio station 97.9, Vicki talked about the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County, her divorce, dating Brooks Ayers and of course, Cilea Lash!

Speaking candidly, Vicki admits that being the OG of the OC makes her “feel old” as each new cast member comes “a little younger and prettier.” Although she is happy with new Housewife on the block Heather Dubrow, who she describes as genuine and “very, very sweet,” Vicki also appreciates that at 41; Heather is “a little bit older,” instead of a “32-year-old that’s never had children.” (I wonder who that could be referring to, ahem… Gretchen Rossi!).

As for dealing with new Housewives Vicki, who describes the Housewives franchises as “like a sorority”, doesn’t hesitate to participate in a little OC Housewives Hazing! “It’s all the way they approach the seasoned cast members, which is Tamra [Barney] and I,” Vicki says of newbies joining the show. “We try to bring ‘em in with open arms and sometimes they come in with claws.”

“Sometimes you have to go ‘Really girl? Step back a little bit!’ and put them in their place and then everybody fights!” It’s nice to know Vicki and Tamra are still BFF. Apparently Heather got off on the right foot because Vicki reveals filming together is a “great experience.”

This season she says the ladies are a little older and a little wiser and there is less bickering (thank goodness!), but lots of “interesting things” happening, including a cast camping trip! “We don’t really know what our reality is from day to day. Every day is a new day,” she says of participating in a reality show.

Apparently Gretchen and Tamra are <gasp> actually getting along! “Gretchen is realizing there’s two sides to every story and I see Gretchen and Tamra trying to resolve some of their issues,” Vicki reveals.

“They are never going to be best friends, but we’re growing up and maturing on TV and nobody wants to see women fight. And if you do [fight], do so in a respectful manner. Not name calling, not hurt people,” she declares, perhaps sending Bravo a message! “I’m hopeful everyone can get along and be class acts. My goal is try to get everybody to help each other.”

When asked about last season focusing on her divorce from ex-husband, Donn Gunvalson, Vicki describes that having the end of her decades long marriage play out on camera was “obviously very, very difficult.”

“I never really wanted any of my marriage demise to be on camera,” Vicki explains, adding that she “pretended everything was fine” to the producers to avoid the drama being included in the show. Unfortunately, the production company “saw right through the film” and confronted her about the state of her relationship with Donn because otherwise her only storyline was insurance! Vicki shares that while pretending to be happy, she was actually filing for divorce and eventually confessed that her marriage was “done.”

Despite her protests, Vicki says the producers said “we have to film this” and she relented allowing it be included in the show. As for the accusations that her addiction to work contributed to her marriage falling apart, Vicki insists that’s not true. “They don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Donn and I are very private people,” she explains. “We will never disclose what happened.”

“It takes two to get divorced. If Donn wanted to still be married to me, we would still be married.” Although, Vicki assures us that despite rumors of infidelity none took place and the split was “amicable.” “I never cheated on Donn the entire time we’ve been married – absolutely not,” she states, insisting she’s never heard “that rumor,” because she doesn’t read the tabloids or blogs anymore.

“That’s the kinda stuff that really makes you throw up. It’s like really? Everyone can just sit there and say anything about you and you have to defend yourself all day long,” Vicki scoffs of tabloid gossip.

Finally, Vicki talked about her new relationship with OC deadbeat dad 2.0 boyfriend Brooks, who she revealed via Twitter will be making an appearance on Housewives this season! As for their relationship, they are taking it slow since she is a “damaged soldier.”

“I’m a hopeless romantic and Brooks and I have a wonderful relationship, but I’m taking it slow,” she reveals. “I’m gonna be 50 this year. I deserve to be loved and he loves me, I deserve to be happy and I am happy with him, but I am also not rushing into anything.”

Refusing to answer any questions about Brooks’ arrest for not paying child support, Vicki became very defensive snapping “You know, what I thought we were talking about Cilea today? Brooks’ business is Brooks’ business;” insisting he has no troubles with the law!

“I am not on the radio to defend my boyfriend. He’s a great guy or I wouldn’t be with him. Period. I really, really don’t want to discuss Brooks’ personal stuff,” she added. “He fell behind on child support and it’s all cleared up now. We all have a past and that’s past.” And there you have it. Slade Smiley’s child support woes are free game and Brooks Ayers’ are not! #Hypocritemuch?

As for what’s next for the insurance hawker, besides planning daughter Briana Wolfsmith’s upcoming nuptials, Vicki reveals she is “slowing the train down a little bit”, but has hopes of writing a finance book about saving for retirement.

She is also undecided about whether or not a season 8 of RHOC’s in store for her just in case Bravo fires her. “From year to year I have to evaluate it. Have to take it day by day and year by year. It’s so hard to predict,” she says of returning next season. “At the end of the day I still have my job, I still have my family” which is more important to her than Housewives. As well it should be!

THOUGHTS ON VICKI’S INTERVIEWS AND HER COMMENTS ABOUT THE PRODUCERS BASICALLY INSISTING SHE FILM THE DEMISE OF HER MARRIAGE? DO YOU THINK THIS SEASON OF RHOC WILL BE BETTER? ARE YOU SURPRISED VICKI IS STILL DATING BROOKS?

Ben Flajnik’s season of The Bachelor has barely started filming yet the drama is already out of control! I guess that’s to be expected when 25 women are vying for the attention of one man!

Reality Steve, spoiler du jour for all things Bachelor related, reports that one of the women that make up Ben’s bevy of bachelorettes asked to leave the show after she fell for one of the producers!

Here’s a little background information to set the story in motion: All of the producers on the set of The Bachelor are men! So basically these 25 women, removed from their lives and quarantined in a mansion while waiting for the attentions of one man, start to form a friendship with the producers constantly around. The women start to trust the producers. The producers play a “best friend” type role in the hopes that the women will reveal secrets, gossip and other incriminating material about themselves that can then be used for dramatic purposes to amp up the show.

Steve reports that “any” of the former contestants will vouch for this and flirting “absolutely” takes place between the women and the producers, except for the women completely focused on the prize! Well, in this situation the contestant got a little side-tracked and potentially was reading too much into the relationship she developed with the producer. Oops! Or maybe she just wasn’t feeling Ben (who does seem a little on the boring side!)?

According to Steve, the unnamed woman fell for this producer so hard she confessed to the crew that she wasn’t so into the main man! Instead of being sent home right away, she was apparently convinced to stick around for another week and was eliminated during the next rose ceremony. My guess – the powers that be at ABC wanted her to play up the ‘I think I might have feelings for someone else’ storyline without disclosing that it was actually a producer on their show!

The producer in question also happens to be married with children! And he is still working for the show, as of now, which leaves Reality Steve to believe that no physical relationship actually took place but it was merely a flirtation or perhaps an excuse for said woman to exit the show. No one knows yet if this incident will make the air, but we all know the producers edit the show how they want it to look regardless of what goes on behind-the-scenes!

Before everyone starts describing this as Rozlyn Papa 2.0 – it was nothing of the sort! In case you don’t remember Rozlyn got caught having relations (and sex!) with a producer and was sent home immediately. The producer in question was also fired.

Steve is also reporting that another contestant named Britni asked to be sent home early! Wow – Ben must really suck as the Bach! I guess we’ll have to see how it all plays out!

The new season of The Bachelor will premier on ABC — Jan 2, 2012 (8/9 ET)

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST SPOILER? DO YOU BELIEVE THE PRODUCER REALLY HAD A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CONTESTANT OR WAS HE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER TO GET INFORMATION? WILL YOU BE WATCHING BEN AS THE BACHELOR?

It’s happily ever after for Flipping Out star Jenni Pulosshe got engaged over the weekend!

Jenni, part-time rapper and long suffering assistant of designer Jeff Lewis, announced the good news on Twitter! “Today is a beautiful day. The man I love has asked me to be his wife,” tweeted Jenni on Sunday.

Even better, Jenni’s new fiancé is a doctor! The Starcasm blog reports Jenni’s beau is Dr. Jonathan Nassos, an orthopedic surgeon from Chicago.

This won’t be Jenni’s first marriage as she was previously married to Chris Elwood. Chris also appeared on the show working for Jeff in seasons 1 and 2, but was ultimately fired at the end of season two — thus contributing to the demise of his marriage.

Congrats to Jenni on her engagement! No word yet on whether this will appear on the next season of Flipping Out. Jenni also tweeted that her boss Jeff has given her his blessings.

It was semi-finals night on Dancing With The Stars Monday and the stakes were high!

Each of the four remaining contestants had to perform three dances each — two individual dance numbers and a Cha Cha relay.

After falling into second place last week, Ricki Lake came back with a vengeance this week earning the highest scores of the night! Ricki finished in first place by earning a perfect score of 30 for her “sizzling hot, bright and brilliant” samba dance, a 29 for her tango, and an 8 for her Cha Cha. She ended the night with an amazing score of 67!

Also showing an amazing improvement after coming in 4th last week was Rob Kardashian! First, Rob earned a score of 28 for shaking his butt during his “fantastic” samba. When you add that to the 27 he earned for his Argentine tango along with the 10 he received for the Cha Cha, Rob finished the night with a 65.

Coming in last place this week was soccer star Hope Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. In Hope’s defense, she did have to dance through a painful shoulder injury. While the judges liked her Argentine tango, giving her a score of 24, they also stated her paso doble “lacked artistry”. Hope received a 21 for the paso doble and earned 4 points for her Cha Cha after finishing last in the relay dance.

Meanwhile, after the live show, Maksim had some choice words for judge Carrie Ann Inaba who criticized him for smiling during her critique. When asked about Carrie Ann’s comments backstage, Maks stated: “F— Carrie Ann,”adding, “Next question.” Perhaps he was joking?

“I think Carrie Ann has an issue,” continued Maks. “I don’t know what it is. I would love to know what it is so I can address it. But as of now, I have no clue… I think it was a great night. I totally disagree with the scores, but what else is new?” Hope also chimed in stating, “They’ve [the judges] wanted to get us off since day one.”

Below are the full scores from last night -

Ricki Lake and Derek Hough (30, 29, 8 ) 67
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke (28, 27, 10) 65
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff (23, 27, 6) 56
Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovksiy (21, 24, 4) 49

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia have an all-girls weekend in Miami and I mean allll girls as it turns out to be lesbian pride weekend. Kim celebrates her 43rd 33rd birthday with a surprise party and Phaedra learns more about the mortuary business — like her husband Apollo is not down with owning a funeral home!

Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia are headed to Miami. Kandi is surprised she was invited since NeNe has never really liked her and all. NeNe probably thinks Kandi is on the outs with Kim over Tardy For The Party and is hoping to recruit her for Team N. Bravo gives us a little flashback of last year’s RHOA trip to Miami and it involved neck snappin’ and eyeball poppin’! When the ladies arrive at the incredibly posh hotel they are greeted with cocktails. My kinda place – and NeNe’s (she announces she lives for a cocktail)!

Perhaps Bravo was wrong not to make Dana Wilkey an official housewife on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after all!

According to a new report by TMZ, Dana would have made a perfect Bravo housewife as she is now being sued for fraud alongside her fiancé John Flynn, who is described as an “entrepreneur.”

In the lawsuit filed at the L.A. Superior Court this week, Mary Painter alleges Dana and John defrauded her out of $53,000. Mary claims she invested the money in 2008 with the couple and another man… she claimed would get at least a 10% return on their investment.

Mary adds that she tried to get her money out a number of times over the past two years to no avail. TMZ adds that it’s unclear what exactly Mary was investing in. She is also suing for breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation as well as asking for her money back plus damages.

Dana’s fiancé spoke to TMZ stating: “There is no fraud. Dana Wilkey is not a properly named defendant, and we expect to continue to negotiate and gain dismissal of this lawsuit as quick as possible.”

Dana also took to her Twitter page to defend herself. She wrote today, “Its a frivolous lawsuit. It will be dismissed. I didn’t even know about it until I TMZ.” She later added, “I’m not involved. I haven’t even met or spoken to the women.”

In other RHOBH news, Thefix.com (a blog about addiction and recovery) is breaking down Kim Richards’ mix of medications. During last week’s episode, Kim revealed her medications to Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif, who then revealed the mix of prescription drugs likely to blame for Kim’s odd behavior this season.

The Fix blog went a step further specifically listing what exactly each drug Kim is taking does to the body and mind. The blog reveals that Kim’s drug mix is a “recipe for confusion.” While Lexapro — one of the drugs Kim is on — is said to be side-effect-free (below is the break down of the two remaining drugs):

Trazodone – “A tetracyclic antidepressant that’s often given to recovering alcoholics and addicts for its strong soporific quality—useful for insomniacs who’ve relied on narcotic-based sedatives—but its side-effects include confusion and difficulty concentrating or remembering things.”

Topamax - “Is an epilepsy drug and mood stabilizer that’s been used experimentally to treat alcoholism and migraine disorders. It, too, carries some crazy risks: users call it “Dopamax” or “Stupamax” because of side-effects like feeling disoriented and confused, or the inability to remember words or speak in complete sentences.”

Kim’s sister Kyle Richards also blogged this week, citing she feels vindicated that the world can now see prescription drugs are to blame for Kim’s behavior this season and not illegal drugs or alcohol. Below is an excerpt from Kyle’s Bravo blog -

“I am happy they showed Kim discussing with Paul the medication’s she has been taking. I think that clears things up for some people. I didn’t know exactly what she was taking, but I knew that the doctors had put her on something and I saw a difference in here — and not always for the best. That is why I got so upset with Brandi for making that comment about Kim and crystal meth. I knew because she said that on camera millions of people would see that. I know from experience, once something is said on camera, true or false, it follows you forever. My sister Kim has struggled enough with her issues. I didn’t want that to set her back. She is a strong girl but fragile at the same time. I told Kim after her visit with Paul that she had to talk to her doctor’s and get that sorted out. Paul didn’t feel she was on the right medication for her anxiety and didn’t think it was the right combination of meds.”

Moving on to tonight’s new episode of the RHOBH! On the 11th episode this season titled “Tempest in a Tea Party,” Lisa’s stately tea party is at a high boil when Taylor’s true feelings about Lisa bubble to the surface and marital issues are addressed. This is the episode that has been highly promoted by Bravo during which Camille will reveal the claims of Russell Armstrong physically abusing Taylor.

The new episode airs at 9/8c and the preview clip is below.

Oh, Kardashians. I swear their family motto is: Will Work For Attention And Paparazzi!

Pimpmomager Kris Jenner, apparently allergic to the word ‘privacy’, is working over-time to pimp her new memoir Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian by revealing the salacious details of her affair while married to ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, Keepin it klassy!

Kris, 56, who married at 22 and immediately began having children, spills that Robert (the father to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob) “had been the only man in my life since I was 18… I don’t know why I was having a mid-life crisis at 30, but I was.” This caused the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to “emotionally” disconnect from her marriage and seek the attention of another man!

Kris describes meeting Ryan, a “producer”, at a friend’s party while her husband was away on a “boys’ ski weekend” which led to a steamy, passionate affair! “We had sex everywhere, all the time,” Kris writes, scarring us for life by putting those images into our heads. She goes even farther, stating Ryan and her had “out of control, crazy dangerous, wild sex” in cars, on the tennis court, in the pool house, the garage! Oh the affairs of the rich! – no seedy hotels for Mama K.

Divulging that she lied constantly to cover the affair (and where were the four K-kids while she was getting busy on Beverly Hills tennis courts, I ask?), Kris claims that after Robert caught her numerous times he filed for divorce. Shortly after, Kris learned that Ryan, her younger paramour, was already cheating on her with other girls! You know what they say about my favorite K-word: Karma!

Kris reveals that upon telling her four children about the divorce they “cried, cried, cried, cried, cried. It was horrible” and upon reading all the racy details of Kris’ sex life I imagine they cried, cried, cried again!

“Suddenly I realized everything that was great about my marriage. Robert was the greatest guy in the world. He would never cheat on me. He only wanted the best for me… he made me a better person,” Kris writes in her tell-all; adding that the divorce caused her to lose “friends, respect, and love.”

“To this day I still cannot tell you why. Again, it was if my body had been taken over by demons or aliens. I was really ashamed of myself,” Kris confesses. “It’s probably the biggest regret of my life that I ended up having an affair,” she shares. “[I was] probably just really naive and stupid and restless and didn’t realize that marriage has its ups and downs.”

Perhaps giving a little advice to currently divorcing daughter, Kim, Kris claims she could have saved her marriage and spared her children if only she had talked to Robert about how she was feeling. You think?

Kris sums up her tryst as: “When you’re very young you do a lot of stupid things.” Like participate in reality television? Get married for 72-days after making a zillion dollars and then film your break-up? Buy your 16-year-old daughter a brand new Range Rover?

Oh yeah, about that Range Rover, Kendall Jenner stepped outside a restaurant following her sweet sixteen dinner to find a bow wrapped Range Rover! A photo of Kendall receiving the gift is below. I’m sure the entire event will also be chronicled by E! as it was reported that Kendall is getting her very own Sweet Sixteen special, which included her shopping for a car.

In other Kardashian news, Kris J’s mother, Mary Jo, is speaking out about Kim’s latest shenanigan — you know, that divorce she recently filed for — and advising her to step out of the public eye for a while. “She has been urging Kim to do this ever since she filed for divorce from Kris [Humphries],” a source comments. “She thinks reality TV is destroying her life!”

Kim’s very wise grandmother is encouraging her to take a “two year break from reality TV,” an insider tells HollywoodLife. What should Kim do away from the spotlight? “Travel to some other country and live there for a while and stay single for the time being,” the insider adds.

And echoing recent reports of tension amongst the Kardashian family over Kim’s latest ploy for attention jeopardizing the family’s career, the insider is claiming that Mary Jo has been arguing with her daughter Kris over their latest media blitz to defend Kim’s actions! “She is fed up with Kris continually pushing her daughters to be in the public eye and now it is back firing,” the source declares. Juicy!

Days after tying the knot, the first wedding photo of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak has been released!

Life & Style magazine, which got exclusive rights to Kim’s wedding pics, released the picture (above) of Kim with her new NFL husband Kroy Biermann.

Kim, 33, tied the knot with Kroy, 26, on Friday in front of their closest family and friends. “I just remember thinking, this is the day I’ve waited my whole life for,” Kim tells Life & Style. “I really do feel like I’m dreaming.”

Kim wore a $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin and embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace. Yes, you read that right, it was a used wedding dress.

This marks the second marriage for Kim and the first for Kroy. Kim has two daughters from a previous relationship and a previous marriage. Life & Style promises more exclusive images and details from Kim’s wedding in their next issue.

Meanwhile, Kim took some time off her newlywed bliss today to fire back at her castmate Nene Leakes for the comments she made about her daughters! On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Nene stated Kim now had three kids by three different men!

Kim tweeted about Nene: “Real cute how Nene loves 2 talk abt my kids she needs to worry abt keeping hers out of jail!” Ouch!

When a user tweeted this to Kim: @Kimzolciak don’t NeNe’s kids have different dads? Just saying… No one should forget where THEY came from, Kim responded with, “Exactly! Pot calling the kettle.”
