Reality Tea


On this beautiful-ish Monday morning, I'm a bit sluggish. Perhaps I was lulled into a stupor by Cynthia Bailey's passive non-action on last night's rather tepid and boring episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta? The wine was not able to keep me – or the episode – afloat. But alas, there were some bright spots. 

We're still in Mexico where NeNe Leakes is telling Peter Thomas that he's like a bitch, no wait he's not really a bitch he just wants to be one of the bitches, but not an actual bitch, he's just in bitches' bizness. So he's a bitch but she didn't mean to call him a bitch she was just pointing out that he was acting like a bitch. If you're confused, you are not alone.



What a difference seven months makes. Last summer, women across America cheered when Juan Pablo Galavis was announced as the next Bachelor

The Bachelor gig is usually reserved for contestants who make it further into the amazing journey that is the Bachelorette. Juan was an early boot for Desiree Hartsock, but we were smitten with the funny (or so we thought) and charming (or so we thought) soccer player from Venezuela.

Now, women across America despise Juan Pablo, and one woman in particular threw a can of beer at him at a club in Atlantic City over the weekend. Ess okay to laugh, right?

Kirk Frost's threesome and baby hating on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta seems like decades ago. Since the reunion aired, his nasty deeds and hurtful behavior seemed to evaporate with every baby shower thrown for wife Rasheeda Frost and posed Instagram pictures with Kandi Burruss. Does no one remember what a douche Kirk was? Am I crazy?

Regardless, Kirk and Rasheeda have put his dirty d and their marital problems behind them and welcomed a beautiful baby boy. Hey, if they're happy, good for them. With the recent insanity surrounding Benzino getting shot on the way to his mother's funeral, it's nice to hear something positive from the show. Rasheeda posted the above picture on her Instagram to show how hard she's been working to return to her pre-baby body, and I have to say she looks amazing. Damn girl.


Kim Kardashian celebrates her birthday

Okay, so this news isn't shocking, but it's annoying. It's another Kardashian show. They just keep coming, and nothing can stop it. It's like a bad case of the stomach virus or the slugs that flock to my backyard when the weather gets warm. Kardashians, slugs, and stomach bugs…sounds about right!

However, while this news is bad, it isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. You see, when I was first checking out Kim Kardashian's website, I was worried that we were going to be bombarded with something much worse than yet another show. I thought Kardashian dolls were coming. Can you even imagine? Thankfully, I didn't read things carefully, and Kris Jenner, if you're reading this, the dolls were my idea. TM. Don't. Please, please, don't. 


Humane Society of the United States Gala 2014

Joanna Krupa stepped out last for the Humane Society of the United States 60th Anniversary party.  The Real Housewives of Miami star gave the photographers a little more than they were expecting.  Joanna's black and gold Michael Costello gown was see through! 

Joanna claims she had no idea you could see everything.  She shared on Facebook, "Omg I was just told by the paparazzi at HSUS 60 th anniversary that my @michaelcostello31 dress is see through! Does it in this pic?!!" And then she shared this super close up picture for analyzing.  

I'd believe Joanna was clueless if it wasn't for the fact that she shared the photo in question (in which it is glaringly obvious that it's see through) and if she didn't already have a history of boldly showing off her ta-tas to the world on purpose. 

Updated: Joanna Tweeted about her dress while throwing a dig at Brandi Glanville "Even though my dress was a bit ruined by flash at least I m not leaving a place drunk w a tampon string hanging." 


Kandi Burruss's Bachelorette Party

Kandi Burruss is one step closer to walking down the aisle with Todd Tucker!  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star celebrated her bachelorette party last night at Compound in Atlanta, along with her co-stars Porsha Stewart (not really looking like someone who supposedly just lost her job) and Phaedra Parks

Kandi shared that they kicked off the night with a Bedroom Kandi party and some underwear shenanigans that I'm not sure I'd want to partake in… 

Kandi dished, "I had the time of my life last night! We started the night off with a @bedroomkandi party & @tracyehamler was our consultant. We played this game where everybody had to try on a pair of underwear & take them off & give them to the next person. The team who finished the fastest won. Our team leaders were @camcambi @chanitafoster & @jacksoncharleshome (Eddie). We had a lot more crazy games, & over the top fun that I either can't talk about or won't post because its Sunday. Lol!" 


Porsha Stewart

As always, it has been a busy week for reality TV news, filled with ups, downs, and Real Housewives of Atlanta drama. Taping of the reunion came to a screeching halt when Porsha Stewart "attacked" Kenya Moore – now rumor has it Porsha has been fired from RHOA.

In other news, the Kardashians have set their sights on the Hamptons, much to the dismay of the locals,  and Bethenny Frankel could be headed back to Bravo. More photos, recaps, and reality TV news:

Um, when you start to mess with Benzino, you're messing with this girl. It's no secret that the neckless wonder is my favorite person from the entire Love & Hip Hop franchise. He's equal parts harmless and unintentionally hilarious. So to the idiot who shot him while he was en route to his mother's funeral (yes, you read all of that correctly), shame on you. What is this world coming to? 

Obviously, 'Zino is thankfully doing alright after the ordeal, and I know this courtesy of Stevie J.'s Instagram. Could this story get any more twisted? The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star is recuperating after being rushed to the hospital following a shooting which occurred during his mother's funeral procession. I don't even know what to make of this situation.
