Reality Tea

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to our U.S. readers!

We want to take a moment to say that we’re so thankful for all of our readers, our commenting community, and we’re also thankful for the reality stars who share their crazy lives with us season after season and give us a reason to come together every day to snark and laugh!

We hope you have a wonderful day spending time with friends and family, as our writers will be doing the same today. Regular posting will resume tomorrow.

If you find yourself hanging out in the comments today, take a moment to tell us what you’re most thankful for this year!

Lydia McLaughlin defends her faith on RHOC reunion

So far this reunion, Lydia McLaughlin has not been her happy-go-lucky self, instead she’s been a bit snide and defensive toward her co-stars. The Real Housewives of Orange County star took to her Bravo blog to explain her actions and reactions.

Despite her combative attitude toward Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds, Lydia claims that she “went into the reunion optimistic.” She added, “I didn’t want to expect fighting and drama. I was hoping to talk about differences and hopefully move forward and make strides in friendships.”

Teresa Giudice Says She Gets Deep In New Book “Standing Strong” – Wants To Write Fictional Novels Next!

Even though The Real Housewives Of New Jersey is on a break this week, we can still live vicariously through their delusions and misadventures in real time! At a recent Long Island book signing for her latest memoir, Standing Strong, Teresa Giudice shared why her ghost writer’s writing has gotten a little more raw lately, how her family is doing, and what advice she has for other women out there who are going through “hard times.”

Teresa also has big plans for the future: a career as a novelist. Yup. It’s happening. The center cannot hold. Things fall apart. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…(Is this the first sign of apocalypse? Or was that when Tamra Judge found Jesus?) In any case, Teresa has plans of not doing certain things in the future as well – like signing anything Joe Giudice asks her to – ever.

Jen Howell

It’s Jen Howell‘s world and we’re all just sailing through it! Or at least that’s what the worst stewardess in Below Deck history seems to believe!

Interactions between Jen and Kate Chastain are still strained after their ‘whore – no you’re the whore’ argument from last week. Jen doesn’t care though – she’s gonna be the best stew she can be (which means the worst stew Kate has ever seen) and she has a new ally in Kyle Dixon. Or so she thinks.

Phaedra Parks becomes a model

Phaedra Parks is a woman of many trades – from lawyering to funeral director, to aerobics instructor, and now that she’s an ex-Real Housewife, she’s reinventing herself again – this time as a model!

Phaedra has gotten a revenge body since leaving Real Housewives Of Atlanta and with that even phiner booty, she’s signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models to flaunt it. “I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,'” triumphs Phaedra. “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

Peggy Sulahian Thinks Lydia McLaughlin’s Religious Beliefs Should Be Off Limits; Sad About The RHOC Divorce Announcements

Wait – was Peggy Sulahian actually at the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion? Because I don’t recall her saying much, aside from a confusing explanation of how coal works atop a grill. In any case, Peggy has a lot to say about what other people said at the reunion, and she breaks it all down in her blog this week!

According to Peggy, Meghan Edmonds needs to back off the attacks on Lydia McLaughlin. She expresses her outrage at Meghan questioning Lydia’s religious beliefs: “There are some topics that are off limits and another person’s faith should be one of them. Why would you dare attack someone’s faith?”
