Reality Tea

dina-manzo-OWN

It's a former Real Housewives of New Jersey bonanza!

Former stars Dina Manzo and Danielle Staub are trying to pedal their way back into the reality television spotlight. Or something.

Dina has a scripted soap oper-y gig in the works, but before that premieres she's appearing on Oprah's 'Where Are They Now' to discuss why she left RHONJ and her fractured relationship with Caroline Manzo. She'll also be discussing her friendship with Teresa Giudice – and her friend's little legal problem!

Dina tells Oprah's network that the show turned toxic and it was no longer an environment she enjoyed. "At the very beginning of filming we had a lot of fun," Dina confesses. "Because they weren't sure what direction the show was going into — it was before the table flip happened."

Another busy week for reality TV news – so many narcissists, so little time!

What to do while facing decades in prison?  Well, if you're Teresa Giudice, you obsess over MTV's Video Music Awards, act like a lunatic on the beach, and take part in a get outta jail free fundraiser.

What to do in the middle of a family crisis?  Well, if you're Kris Jenner, you obsess over your failing daytime talk show, drag your son-in-law through the mud, and plan your daughter's divorce behind her back.

Brandi Glanville is laughing her ass off this weekend. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was just asked if she's interested in guest-starring on Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes' new scripted "reality show" (featuring fake stand-in sons…) – we think. 

Brandi took to Twitter to share the outlandish request.  She wrote, "I am laughing sooooooo hard at the offer that just came into my agent for me! NOT GONNA DO IT!!!! OMG OMG."

So, I guess the norm in in celebrity divorces is they typically take longer than the couple was actually married.  Of course, on the flip side, the longer the marriage, the quicker the pair is to do whatever it takes to get out of it.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif seem to have found a happy medium between the two ends of the spectrum.  Their divorce proceedings started in July of last year after more than ten years of marriage.  And now (sigh of relief)…it's over.

Who knew?  It seems that Tamra Barney may have had her best year yet!  The Real Housewives of Orange County star managed to come out of this season looking not too shabby compared to past seasons.  Even as her normal two-faced mean girl self, Tamra seemed to be…dare I say it?…genuine and slightly relatable.

She got married to Eddie Judge (and a coveted spin-off!) and opened a business.  Tamra managed to mature a little bit and rekindle some old frienemieships while being somewhat nice to those to whom she'd once (or thrice) treated brutally.  Awww, our girl is all grown up, isn't she?

2013 MTV Music Video Awards

Melissa Gorga is not going to be happy about this! 

While doing some press for her new single "Never Let Me Go", The Real Housewives of New Jersey star stopped by XL106.7 radio station in Orlando and sang the song for the audience.  Right from the get-go I knew something was "off".  The sound is all wrong.  Melissa's track isn't playing and the station's commercials are going in the background, too.  So it's like a crazy mix of her mic and their live feed and it wasn't cleaned up properly or something and no background vocals, etc. 

I have to stick up for Melissa a little bit on this one.  Have you heard Taylor Swift, Kesha, or other big names when something similar happened to them?  Yeah, it's not pretty – Google it!  And they at least had the music track playing to help the scare factor! 

We reached out to Melissa's rep to see if they care to elaborate on the singing snafu.  We'll let you know if they share any details.
