Reality Tea

southern charm shep

Holy crap! Charleston is totally going to RavenHell in a hand basket courtesy of Bravo. So, since last week, pretty much all anyone in this town is talking about is how horrible (and somewhat addictive) Southern Charm is. Well, played Andy Cohen. You are a true evil genius. My Facebook newsfeed was filled with friends who were posting pictures of themselves with these yahoos, and I couldn't tell if they are star struck or legitimate friends with the cast of this show. Is one of those scenarios better than the other? 

Thomas Ravenel calls his father to talk about a chance meeting with Governor Nikki Haley at a Yankee fundraiser and implore him to start procreating to ensure the family's future. T-Rav reminds us that his dirty political consultant Will Folks wants him to pick the pedigreed Kathryn Dennis for a bride and child bearer (spoiler alert…she is about to have his child in "real time"), but at thirty years his junior (if you go by his birth certificate and not his Bravo bio), T-Rav is concerned that she may be too immature for him. Well, she did graduate from high school in 2009, but some snooping reveals that their burgeoning relationship is totally Facebook official. The pair even thanks "Sic Willie" for his matchmaking skills on T-Rav's page. Gag. That's a relief. T-Rav is traveling to Edisto to give a polo lesson to Shep's ex-girlfriend Danni, and he's great at skeeving me out by molesting her with his eyes and talking about how comfortable she looks in the saddle.

Brandi Glanville stopped by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse, which is currently relocated to Texas for SXSW.  She dished on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finale, the spats with Lisa Vanderpump and more.

Andy: You're getting a lot of shit on Twitter tonight

Brandi – Am I?  Well Twitter can suck it.

Andy announces the poll question (team Lisa or team Brandi) and Brandi snaps "Well I never win and this was like your poll question LAST week, soo… I'm not gonna win".  (And she didn't – she got 33%)

The first question for Brandi is wondering why everyone decided to go against Lisa this season?   "Because she's perfect. No, I'm kidding. I don't think all of the girls decided to go against her. I think we all had separate issues with her. It felt like when one person opened that door, it was like 'okay we can all do it'.  Separately but it is hard to go against her because she is so perfect."

The battle of Lisa Vanderpump vs. Brandi Glanville will not go away quietly. I guess Bravo will just have to fire one of them! 

In round 3 zillion between the former friends and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars, Lisa continues to speak-out on Brandi's trouble with the truth and Brandi continues to complain that Lisa forced her to interact with Scheana Marie and lied about it. Brandi is so annoyed she wants people to remember this is just a TV show, not her life, like she's been telling us for like years. I guess I'm confused… 

First up, Lisa speaks to OK! Magazine about her co-stars and the pesky tabloid rumors Brandi accused her of! “It had nothing to do with me, this whole scenario is something Brandi created,” Lisa maintains. “It is just like every other false comment Brandi has made about me. Such as, I filed for bankruptcy, I live in the Valley, and that I got Cedric Martinez deported. Just because Brandi says it, doesn’t make it true — and with her, it’s usually the opposite.”



ABC has released the cast photos of Dancing with the Stars season 18.  

Above is a glimpse of Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, in a lacy dancing costume, with her pro partner Tony Dovolani. Melissa Gorga thinks NeNe will "rock that dance floor like a true diva should!"  Do you agree? 

This season, pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is back, host Brooke Burke is out, and host Erin Andrews is in. The new season kicks off Monday, March 17th!

Below are photos of the remaining season 18 starsAmy Purdy, Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron Bure, Charlie White, Cody Simpson, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, James Maslow, Meryl Davis, & Sean Avery – with their pro partners.


Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party

Look I'm just gonna say it straight out: I don't believe this anymore than I believe Kim Kardashian's butt (or her relationship to Kanye West) is real! 

Last week Kim played the role of paid escort to billionaire Richard Lugner at the Vienna Opera Ball. After taking his money, she proceeded to complain about him all over the media. Now Kim is claiming her trip to Vienna was even worse than we imagined! 

“Some woman started screaming obscenities at me for being in a mixed-race relationship…and went on for about five hours,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star whined to Piers Morgan. “They called the police when we landed, and she was taken away. But it was so disgusting.”


Marysol Patton seen wearing a see-through top with a mystery man in Miami Beach

When you hire Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton to promote your product, she goes the extra mile! 

Marysol and a friend hit the beach this weekend to show off her bikini body and promote a little wine in a can (aka Friends Fun Wine – she's an ambassador for them).  Marysol lounged in a tight white top – braless (and sans bikini top) – and then jumped in the ocean for a little impromptu wet t-shirt contest.  She was the only entrant. 

It wouldn't have been so obvious that Marysol was working the product placement if she hadn't jumped in the ocean with an expensive watch still on – and brought her can along to chug in the water.  In any case, it worked because here we are posting about it!



Bring on the parade of former child stars (I'm not complaining–The Wonder Years is my Netflix go-to!) and a loud housewife as we prepare for an eighteenth season of Dancing with the Stars. While all of the original judges will be returning, host Brooke Burke has been replaced with sports commentator Erin Andrews. Also returning? Dance pro (and eye candy) Maksim Chmerkovskiy! He reveals that he was actually invited back in a different capacity.

Also, Lisa Vanderpump paved the way for Bravo housewives on the dance competition, and she has some sound advice for competitor NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She knows that it takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to make it on the show, but Lisa promises NeNe that it's worth every minute!
