Reality Tea


Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Miami was all about family matters – and twisty, curvy, convoluted family dynamics! 

It turns out Romain Zago has more than a childhood shrouded in negligent parenting as neither of his parents could give a fig about attending his wedding to Joanna Krupa. Scared of Joanna? Even worse – Romain's brother, the supposed best man, is iffy about whether or not he'll attend. Maybe they can do Skype nuptials? Joanna feels that's what they get for waiting six years to set a date. Nevertheless it made her really appreciate her family (maybe she'll stop ball-busting Marta. I mean she's finally stopped ball-busting Romain!). 

It also makes Joanna understand that she truly is the only family Romain has. Better get to reproducing – or she's probably saving that for next year's storyline (if they get renewed, that is)! To celebrate their love, Romain is surprising Joanna with a romantic evening. First he rips up the prenup they were planning to sign (love, Housewives style!) then he rents a yacht and has a puppy waiting on board. Joanna is in heaven. I'm just happy Joanna found someone willing to put up with her. Better Romain than Marta – or me! 



What to do, what to do. Seriously, what does one do when turtle time and Pinot chugging becomes an old story line? Some media outlets are reporting that the recent rumblings of Mario Singer's infidelities are just in time to bring some buzz for the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York.

While rumors are flying that Mario sent junk selfies to a much younger socialite and may have even gotten her pregnant, Ramona Singer is hinting that all of the hoopla is just made for TV drama courtesy of Bravo.  Sure it is.

Former Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D is a first time dad! 

Pauly (aka Paul DelVecchio) welcomed a baby girl recently with a former flame that he met in Las Vegas.  He's not sharing the mom's name, but she does live in New Jersey with the baby.  TMZ reports that Pauly's daughter is a few months old already. 

Pauly shared, "I'm proud I'm a father.  I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."

Let the playdates begin, Snooki! 

I'm betting that JWoww and Roger will be the next to take the parent plunge.

So Kim Kardashian is engaged – again! Hopefully this time will stick. I have to admit I'm surprised that Kanye West proposed – not sure why, but I do wish the couple all the happiness in the world. 

And I'm totally psyched about the reality show pimp-momma Kris Jenner is undoubtedly going to have them filming. Keeping Up With Kimye, anyone?!

Anyway, according to TMZ Kanye spent $35,000 to rent out the Giants stadium last night and propose to Kim. But $35k is nothing compared to how much he spent on the 15 carat diamond Kim is now sporting on her finger!



The rumors started flying about possible casting choices for season six of Real Housewives of New Jersey before we even put season five to bed.

We don't know 100% who is in and who is out for the new season, but we can tell you that we won't be seeing the children of one of the new Housewives. Celeb gossip journalist Tom Murro shared that he was told by someone definitely in the know that one of the new Housewives' ex-husband is refusing to sign any paperwork that would allow their kids to be shown on camera!

Well, last week's episode of positivity and good times quickly fell by the wayside, didn't it? On last night's season finale of Basketball Wives, Suzie Ketcham certainly went out with a bang, while Tami Roman made sure to stir the pot behind the scenes. Shaunie O'Neal has perfected her appalled look when dishware is thrown, and Evelyn Lozada manages to shed just a few more tears.

The ladies decide to have a quiet night in on their last night in London. The women are showering Evelyn with praise over a fashion show well done, and they unanimously decide it's hands down the best girls trip they've taken for the show. Given that no one left in the middle of the night or had dead fish hidden in their suitcase, I'd say it was a screaming success.

Back in Los Angeles (where do these ladies live?), Evelyn, Tami, Suzie, and Shaunie are bowling. Tami decides its the perfect time to tell her friends about Kenya Bell's phone call and invitation to see her perform. They find it humorous that Kenya claims to have turned over a new leaf. Tami describes her "Hate Me" song, and Suzie's eyes immediately turn to daggers. The ladies are shocked to learn that her song is about one of them, and they narrow it down to either being a "tribute" to Suzie or Evelyn. Oh hell no!  It had better not be about Evelyn! Suzie checks out the lyrics on the Internet, and Evelyn accuses her of being so high school. She would know, right?


Kim Kardashian Engaged! Kanye West Proposed On Her Birthday

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged! 

Kim's 33rd birthday will be an occasion to remember as Kanye proposed to her in front of friends and family last night at AT&T Park in San Francisco.  Kanye rented out the entire stadium to pull off his big birthday surprise. 

My question is…was it filmed for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"?  We know Kanye hasn't been comfortable participating on the show, but they ARE still filming, so it makes me wonder…
