Reality Tea

It pays to have connections!  Lisa Hochstein chipped her tooth at 1 a.m. and thankfully she has friends in all the right places – Karent Sierra DDS to the rescue. 

Lisa chipped the tooth at her friend Carrie's birthday celebration and her former Real Housewives of Miami co-star Karent took the emergency call, offering to meet Lisa at her office.  Lisa shared Tweets and photos of the traumatic morning, "@karentsierra and I at 1 am in her office fixing my chipped tooth. I don't follow instructions well lol #acid #dentist #drkarentsierra this should be on #rhom.  Came to my rescue at 1am! #loveher #goodfriend best #dentist ever". 

Karent fixed her up and was glad to see Lisa's "hillbilly smile" gone.  "Happy to have been able to take care of my friend @lisahochstein #dentistsaregoodfriendstohave.  Looking fabulous Miss Lisa! No more hillbilly smile  @lisahochstein #smile #teeth #emergencydentist #dentalspa".  (How many hashtags can they cram in one Tweet?)

This is why it's important to never burn those reality TV bridges, ladies!

The reality TV viewer numbers for Sunday and Monday are in. Honestly, there isn't a whole lot to report, as most of the audiences are holding steady. 

Real Housewives of New Jersey didn't seem to be affected by the terribly boring Emmy Awards, which managed nearly 18 million viewers.  Melissa's singing and the Posche 2 party brought 2.476 million viewers (compared to last week's 2.404) to Bravo.  Will Stiletto Gate give the season finale a boost?

Also on Sunday, 2.010 million Kody fans tuned in to the season finale of Sister Wives. 1.903 million stuck around for the Whiners, err, Wives Tell All special.

On Monday night, Real Housewives of Miami and Basketball Wives fell hard, each losing roughly 250,000 viewers. This week, only 812,000 tuned in to see Joanna and Adriana's wedding prep, and the hot mess that was Tasha's weave bar grand opening attracted just 1.723 million.

Teen Mom 3 remained steady with the baby daddy drama and 1.429 million viewers.  Mondays are a bitch?  Maybe for Bravo – but not for MTV.

Melissa Gorga Book signing

When Melissa Gorga "wrote" (as in scrawled with pink glitter pen in her trusty Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper) her book Love Italian Style about keeping your marriage to a poison-shrouded mini oaf hot and sexy, she had no idea that some of her very traditional, shall we say, advice may be called out as disrespectful. I mean it works for Melissa right – she gets to keep POISON! GAAAAAAG

According to the popular blogspot, Jezebel, some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star's tried and true advice is not only ridiculous, but potentially abusive!*

Among the beliefs Melissa espouses, one central theme is: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to dominate." That is a direct quote from her book. And husbands want to dominate in all aspects of the marriage – from sex, to the home, their wife's wardrobe!

Kate Gosselin, who has a cook book to promote and a lawsuit to milk, is out and about.  Consider yourselves warned.  On the Today show, Kate talked about how much she's changed since Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired, as well as the lawsuit she filed against ex-husband Jon Gosselin. She did it for the kids!

"Life is one humongous learning experience," explained Kate. "As you get older, you do mellow. You do learn what is important. I've learned what to let go, what are real battles, and what are important battles. I do like the me of today a lot more than that really stressed out, sleep deprived, I'm going to go insane any minute Kate."

For once (I know, I can't believe it either), I am going to reserve judgment on the following interview.  In part, I think Basketball Wives' Tami Roman's chat with the Christian Post is sincere, but I can't help but think that all of these ladies are on a massive PR campaign to spiff up their tarnished images despite the same bad (albeit calmer) behavior this season.  Plus, I don't want to get struck by lightning…

Talking to the magazine, Tami shares that the online petitions created by fans last season to have her kicked off the show caused her to fall into a deep depression.  She says, "I was traumatized. I became an introvert and literally withdrew from everybody that loved me, the people that I worked with and I didn't know how to handle what was happening."  Again, reserving judgment.

It was the power of prayer, according to Tami, that turned things around (perhaps things are still turning? No judgment, Lauren).  She admits, "It caused me to just say, 'ok God help me out of this situation' and I decided to make all the necessary changes," adding, "But I needed to have people really know me, know Tami and not just the imagery that they see on Basketball Wives."

Melissa Gorga

Melissa Gorga is so over these cheating rumors and the Twitter brigade that's out to tear her down.  She shares this week that she's tired of it all and is moving on, hoping these people will get a hobby and live their own lives.

Melissa shared, "UGH! I don’t know about you, but I am so over the he said, she said. It’s getting very old if you ask me. The fact is I came onto the RHONJ scene talking about sprinkle cookies and re-done homes. How we got to gold-digging, stripping, and cheating is beyond me." 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star explains why she is not focused on the actual rumor itself, "For me it’s not so much about the actual rumors, because they are ridiculous and almost laughable. The people that came on the show to spread them when confronted and asked for proof have NONE. The people that shout from the rooftops on Twitter and in blogs, promising to “Bring the Truth” never do! Know this: if you were in my past, you remain in my past for a reason. Contrary to what some may say, I’m not spending my time talking about you, and I honestly wish everyone well."
