We have an all new round up of hot reality star pics for you this week!  Gretchen Rossi had an “impromptu” photo shoot with a cameraman while pushing her dogs in a stroller this week.  Adrienne Maloof attended a Halloween party with her sons and her boyfriend Jacob Busch

LuAnn de Lesseps held her estate sale and co-stars Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson stopped by.  Lisa Hochstein, Alexia Echevarria and Marysol Patton partied together at an event while their former co-star Joanna Krupa was seen grabbing a flight. 

Also spotted this week: Kris Jenner promoting her new cookbook, Bethenny Frankel running around NYC, Ramona Singer filming scenes and Sonja Morgan glamming it up.  Take a look at the pics below! 

gretchen christine millionaire matchmaker

Gretchen Rossi has found yet another reality show to appear on. But this one makes less sense than Marriage Bootcamp! Apparently the former star of the Real Housewives of Orange County is set to appear on The Millionaire Matchmaker.

Sounds like an odd choice, since earlier this week she was gushing over her fiancé Slade Smiley in a gag-worthy Instagram post. So what gives? Is Gretchen finally ready to find a new man?

 Victoria Gotti

Yesterday Reality Tea had the opportunity to chat with Victoria Gotti about her feelings about reality TV then and now, her decision to return to reality TV in Growing Up Gotti: 10 Years Later, and what’s changed in her life after reality TV. Victoria also shared an update on her sons’ lives. 

Victoria was candid, unapologetic, a dedicated mother, and exactly what you see on TV – which was a refreshing. She was adamant that the ‘blame the editors’ adage so many reality stars cling to is ridiculous, but she also admitted that reality TV has changed over the years. I take it her recent experience on Real Housewives Of New Jersey led her to that conclusion. 

Victoria is excited to show viewers how her family has grown since we saw them on Growing Up Gotti, and she maintains that her experiences on that show, and on other reality shows, have been a positive ones, which is why she decided to open her life up the cameras again for an update. 

Quoting Al Pacino from The Godfather III, Victoria joked, “‘Just when I think I’m out, they call me back in.’ No pun intended. But I think once you do it, that’s it!” Victoria says she has “no regrets” about participating in the original incarnation of Growing Up Gotti – and neither do her sons. “I loved it! When I was asked to come back, do this, I didn’t hesitate.”

Caroline Manzo

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo has never been one to mince words. In her five years starring on the show, she was often the voice of reason to her castmates, no matter what the consequences — good or bad — may have been.

Well, now as she gets ready to wrap the first season of Manzo’d With Children, Caroline is opening up about her former costars and what the future may hold for her new show and her family.

bethenny frankel on the view october 2014

Bethenny Frankel is returning to Real Housewives Of New York for the now filming 7th season, but the veteran Housewife promises she’ll be doing things differently this time!

Bethenny is back to hawking her Skinnygirl wares as if this was 2010 and the last four years of spinoffs, big business breaks, marriages, pending divorces, babies, failed talk shows and failed Skinnygirl products never happened. Bethenny is currently promoting a Skinnygirl cocktail book because um… you need that if you’re fancier than buying her bottled mixed drinks. 

This week Bethenny appeared on The View where she seemed nervous, tongue-tied, and a bit jittery over being confronted about her major lifestyle change (i.e. how the mighty has fallen). She also promoted her new book Skinnygirl Cocktails. “It’s a great little guide,” she quipped. “All the drinks are under 150 calories.”

Manzo'd with Children in Texas

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and Manzo’d with Children continued its downward spiral. The spinoff premiered to 1.717 million just four weeks ago. This week, 995,000 watched Lauren revamp Cafface and 937,000 watched the Manzos embarrass themselves in Texas. The secrets revealed episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey attracted 1.796 million viewers.

Bravo’s lineup this Sunday includes the Real Housewives of Atlanta season seven preview, part one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, and the Manzo’d with Children season finale.

Back to the viewer numbers — Love & Hip Hop Hollywood remained steady with 2.332 million watching Nia introduce her dad to Soulja Boy, a double date on My Five Wives garnered 970,000 viewers, and a gut-wrenching episode of Million Dollar Listing LA logged 1.3 million viewers. Thank you, Josh Flagg, for sharing your amazing grandmother with us for the past six years.

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have a lot more than just relationship problems. The troubled reality stars have been sharing their quest to keep their marriage afloat since April on True Tori. The Lifetime series is seriously like watching a train wreck, it is so gruesome to look at, yet you just can’t look away.

Last night while crying over her money woes, Tori claims that the family lives paycheck to paycheck, making supporting her four kids and husband difficult.

If you recall — Tori grew up SUPER WEALTHY — when her dad Aaron Spelling died he left behind $600 million, but sources claim the reason Tori only received $800,000 was because of her excessive spending. Spending habits that she still seems to maintain, even though she is not on Daddy’s payroll anymore.
