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!
Extra host and Dancing With the Stars alum Maria Menounos shared a shocking secret with Howard Stern. Yesterday, during an interview with the shock jock, she admitted she was terrified of doctors…and she has good reason to be. HollywoodLife.com reports on Maria’s admission that she has been molested by not one, but two doctors. A few years ago, the entertainment correspondent was asked to disrobe during a throat exam. The doctor then began fondling her genitals.
She reveals, “I was really young, so I was uncomfortable. [My boyfriend] Kevin was in the waiting room and I literally started screaming . . . I was just so uncomfortable I didn’t know what to do.”
There are ten bachelors left on ABC’s wildly successful entertaining The Bachelorette. This week, the guys score a free trip to London. Yes, Emily Maynard is there too, as there’s always a catch. The guys are checking out the scenery when the first date card comes into play. The one-on-one date goes to Sean Lowe. Date card reads, “Love takes no prisoners.” Emily and Sean tour London. Sean speaks to the people of London about love. Sean is my favorite bachelor thus far; however, this date is dreadfully boring. The date card should have read, “Emily brings the history lesson while Sean brings the pretty.”
The group date card arrives. It reads, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The mushroom farmer is the first to connect this quote to Shakespeare. I don’t know the rate at which mushrooms grow, so he might have a lot of free time in the fields to read tragic tales such as Romeo and Juliet. Or, a producer might have written the answer on his hand. The group date goes to…
Yesterday was a big day for Bethenny Frankel as her new talk show, ‘bethenny’, debuted in several markets across the country (but not ours!).
We scoured the web yesterday trying to find the full episode – with no luck. We DID find several clips from the show and they’re pretty hilarious and totally Bethenny. She’s not dialing it back or changing her personality and you have to respect her for that!
We also stumbled on some pictures of Bethenny from a meet and greet event in Philadelphia yesterday. Those are below, along with the video clips from her debut episode of ‘bethenny’.
Did any of you have a chance to see the show in full yesterday? What’d you think? I thought it was great that Jason Hoppy is hanging out in the audience and the “Sex Q&A” clip is hysterical!
