One of the suits at Beanstalk says they signed Nene because she is more famous than most other reality stars: “NeNe’s rise to fame has eclipsed that of any other reality television star today, providing a real opportunity to extend her brand.” while another claims her clothes will “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories, designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ — like NeNe herself.”
Well, there’s really only one Nene Leakes. And I think you’re going to need more than some pants with her name on the label to recreate her appeal. But we sure can try!
TELL US: WILL YOU BUY NENE’S FASHION LINE? IS THERE ANY HOPE OF A NE BY NENE VS. SHE BY SHEREE WALK OFF?
So last night on Real Housewives of Orange County we watched Tamra Barney get engaged to Eddie Judge on the most amazingly romantic trip to Bora Bora. It was a beautiful proposal and a lovely vacation – and congrats to the happy couple. Dang, I’d date Eddie for a vacation like that.
There’s been a lot of gossip that this trip was originally planned for Gretchen Rossi and Slave Smileybecause he was going to surprise her with a proposal in the hopes of getting a spinoff, of course! Unfortunately – according to legend – Gretchen found out about Slave’s plan and flipped her shizz so Bravo offered up the trip to Eddie instead. And it’s a good thing that Gretchen refused to go, because while Eddie has a job, Slave doesn’t and we all know there’s no way in hell he could afford the Four Seasons and first class airfare to Bora Bora.
Now I’m not saying Eddie wasn’t planning to propose already – he probably was – but who would pass up a 5-star vacation to Bora Bora? Not anyone with sense, that’s for sure. Tamra is obviously beside herself that anyone would ever think such a thing and even went so far to get into a twitter snipe fest with former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord over the accusation. You know there may be no truth to it, but as Aviva Drescher reminded us last night where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire – and there’s been a lot of smoke surrounding this story.
This weekend Alexis Bellino threw a surprise 50th birthday extravaganza for husband Jim Bellino. Jim, who has officially declared that he will never, ever not for one minute ever again appear on an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, was surprised with a private jet to Napa where he celebrated with several friends. Can they afford this? Isn’t that a little “materialistic?”
“Happy Birthday to the love of my life, my hot hubby Jim Bellino. You don’t look a day over 38! Muah!,” Alexis gushed on Twitter.

As you know, Phaedra, reality starlet, quotable wordsmith, lover of pickles, and attorney extraordinaire, did not take kindly to Vibe.com financially backing Angela Stanton’s tome of slander “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil,” and she recently filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the site’s parent company. Now it appears that her mother, Pastor Regina Bell, is following suit…literally!
It’s obviously Jersey Shoreweek because these guidos cannot get themselves out of the news! I guess MTV is desperate to drum up some publicity for the new season which many thought would be boring considering a newly sober Situation and a very pregnant Snooki. Luckily, the drinking members of the crew still know how to throw down – literally.
Anyway, enough about bar fights and on to smooshing. Despite her knocked up and engaged status, Snooki is still managing to have scandals galore. The guidette has recently been the unfortunate (for all of us) subject of a nude photo leak. Oops! The age old adage about sex tapes and nudie pics continues to ring true – if you don’t want to them to get out – don’t take them!
The photos were taken pre-pregnancy and naturally everyone believes the culprit of the release is ex-boyfriend with a vendetta (and a famewhore inclination) Emilio Masella.
We wanted to keep our readers in the loop today about some changes that are coming! Reality Tea will be undergoing maintenance and will be getting some wonderful updates/upgrades to help the site run faster, be more secure, and enhance the commenting system!
There will be an editorial freeze for a large part of the day today as we make those changes. You’ll still be able to access the site and read the articles already published. We just won’t be posting anything new until the maintenance is finished. We’re aiming for later tonight or tomorrow morning! We’ll post an update once it’s all clear and good to go.
One big change you’ll see – and we don’t want you to panic! – is that the comments may disappear. We’re changing over to Disqus (yay!!) to make your commenting experience much more enjoyable and easier to navigate, conversate, etc! That means the old comments will disappear temporarily. We’re hoping they will return in a few days or so!
Thanks for your patience through it all! You guys are the best!!
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York was pretty low-key and I have to say after all the recent drama with certain other Housewives shows it was refreshing to watch a show that focused on the lives of rich, fabulous women instead of fabricated drama and petty fights. Well there was one petty fight, but it paled in comparison to other recent fights on other Housewives shows. And really I never thought there would come a day when I referred to Pinot Singer as low-key, and she’s not by any normal standards, but alas the pinot hath frozen over.
Things open with Aviva Drescher and her husband Reed meeting Heather Thomson and her husband for a getting to know you dinner. Over salads, Heather shares that though her husband is the son of a famous rabbi and they practice Judaism, she is not a full convert. No, no… she’s merely Jewish by injection only. Well, since there’s no shots the doctor can give you to make you Jewish, I’m going to assume the injection comes from her husband’s kosher sausage.
Among the other shocking revelations that came over dinner was the lurid story of Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps‘ bedroom activities and their proximity to Aviva‘s ex-husband. Boy, this man is busy on the Housewives circuit! Is he going to make his way to other franchises? Apparently Harry attended Heather‘s birthday party (does he know everyone associated with this show?) where it was disclosed (discovered?) that he slept with both Sonja AND LuAnn. When – no one seems to know – but it was presumably after the time when Aviva was married to him. A surprised Aviva handled the news with dignity, but disgust. I don’t know about you, but that would be a little too close to comfort for me!
