Reality Tea

What is this world coming to? Seriously! I am quickly losing faith in humankind.  First, Kim Kardashian gets engaged for a third time, and I have yet to rent space on my ring finger to any cubic zirconia, much less a fifteen carat diamond.  Then, my love Pauly D goes and fathers a child behind my back (come to think of it, maybe my attraction to Pauly D has something to do with the caliber of guys I find who aren't proposing—and that's likely a good thing!), and now someone has just gone too far.  TOO FAR!

You want to smash the pumpkin on my front porch?  Go for it, you punk vandal. Your sticky fingers want to take more than your fair share of the candy I leave out on Halloween? Eat away, chubs! But do not, I repeat, DO NOT, defile all that is good and decent in the world…namely Duck Dynasty's Uncle Si Robertson!

PHOTOS: Weekly Reality TV Star Roundup – October 23 Joanna Krupa,

Happy Wednesday!  Time for an all new reality TV star photo roundup! 

Today we have Lisa Vanderpump and hubby Ken Todd getting cozy at an event in L.A.  Isn't time for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills yet?

Down in the gallery you'll find Jill Zarin getting her fitness on, Giuliana Rancic recoiling at the sight of a pastry (not really, but mentally I bet she was!), Karent Sierra is a lady in red, Joanna Krupa celebrates at a gentleman's club in Vegas, Kyle Richards has lunch with Joyce Giraud, and Kim Kardashian tries to glam it up like she's on Dynasty now.

You'll also spot LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel and many more.  But NOT Kelly Bensimon this week!  It's true, I swear! Go look if you don't believe me!


Joanna Krupa Real Houswives Premier

See Update Below! Apparently the Real Housewives of Miami reunion, which taped last week, was serious drama! And the drama mostly centered around former BFFs Lisa Hochstein and Joanna Krupa. The reality TV curse of the best friends strikes again. 

Joanna tweeted that the reunion was "brutal". The two former friends had a falling out over Lisa's friendship with Adriana de Moura, and Joanna kicked her out of her wedding party!

The drama came to a serious head at the reunion when Joanna allegedly revealed something seriously scandalous about Lisa's past. And Lisa is suing mad! An insider tells All About TRH Lisa is seeking to file a defamation suit against Joanna. 


2013 Miss USA Pageant

Just yesterday Pauly D announced he was the proud papa of a five-month-old girl. The mama of whom is a one night stand Vegas hookup! 

The baby mama in question is named Amanda Markert according to TMZ. She's a Hooters waitress who also has another kid. And therein lies the problem – the former Jersey Shore star claims the 25-year-old Amanda is using him for money and he wants custody of daughter Amabella.  Pauly believes that Amanda is unfit based on both her occupation and her double single mother status! 

Both Pauly and Amanda have filed court docs against each other filing for custody. Pauly has reportedly never met his daughter, but DNA tests confirm he is definitely the father – and he's looking for FULL custody. Amanda is of course also seeking full custody, plus demanding child support. Sources say Pauly is not contesting support as he wants to take care of his daughter, but he also wants a relationship with her. That's sweet.



It's time to breakdown who's watching what on Sunday and Monday nights.

On Sunday, Keeping Up with the Kardashians took the night off. Are you all OK? If you and your TV survived the heartbreak, you may have tuned in to the Real Housewives of New Jersey special or the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy reunion.  Part two of the RHONJ Tell All brought 1.509 million viewers to Bravo and 865,000 fans checked out Queer Eye: 10 Years Later.

On Monday, the season 5 finale of Basketball Wives attracted 2.233 million viewers, bringing its season average to 1.96 million. Also, 833,000 loyal fans (steady) tuned in to the Lea Black show, err, the Real Housewives of Miami and 1.106 million viewers (down over 150,000 from last week) watched Katie and Joey break up on Teen Mom 3 this week.



I know you all are going to be soooo surprised by what you're about to read, but Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kanye West was filmed for reality TV! I knew pimpmoma Kris Jenner wasn't going to let the ultimate publicity stunt, ratings ploy go to waste – especially with interest waning in America's First Family of Reality Television Atrocities! 

In the wake of several unfortunate Kardashian events, including allegations that Kanye would never propose to Kim and that their relationship was fake (I believe it – at least from his perspective!) Kanye planned a big honking proposal – with Keeping Up With The Kardashian kameras in tow! 

A member of the orchestra dishes that she was paid four-times her normal rate and required to sign a non-disclosure agreement before performing at the Kimye Proposal Show. The musicians knew 2 days in advance what Kanye was secretly planning and snagged $1k each for the gig. 



Last night on I Dream Of NeNe, "bridemaid" drama continued between Marlo Hampton and Diana Gowins, except Diana got the memo loud and clear that she better shape up and get on Team Worship NeNe Leakes! The ladies also traveled to Cancun for NeNe's bachelorette party. Of course no one behaved accordingly. 

Things started out fine. In the van from the airport everyone was joking around pretending to smoke twizzlers and then deep throat them. Marlo excelled in that arena. Once they arrived they discovered a soccer team was sharing their resort which was fine for some of the ladies, namely Dawn

The jollies continued as the ladies participated in the nipslip olympics. First was some sort of pseudo surf waves which caused Jennifer Williams (I forgot how lovely she is) and Diana to lose precious small bits of bikini coverage over and over again. Thank you for blurry modesty bars. From the sidelines the other ladies cheered and snickered. Diana is really working overtime to prove she isn't the "president" but merely a humble servant. And she's fun too!

Did anyone think NeNe installed some sort of zapper in Diana and whenever she didn't follow the rules NeNe shocked her? She had a personality 180 this episode…
