Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Full Cast Photo

Oh goodness – the ladies who are giving The Garden State a bad name are back! Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo on July 13 and it's out with the old and in with the new! 

While Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice remain on the cast (because duh – Teresa's INDICTMENT!), the rumors are officially confirmed that Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile are out! Taking their places is Dina Manzo, who waited until her only family drama had been fired to reclaim her title. 

And there are also three new ladies: Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea (another Teresa!) and Nicole Mauriello, who are twins!

‚ÄčThis season there will of course be tons of focus on Teresa and Joe Giudice's impending indictment for fraud as the couple pretends to be attempts to prove they are innocent. Dina returns to be a shoulder for Teresa to cry on, but also struggles with her own divorce from husband Tommy.

Melissa and Poison will attempt to embark upon yet another career to stave off their own bankruptcy in the sanitation business as Melissa continues to pursue her passion for auto-tune singing.  Also, Melissa's friend from the past, and new Housewife Amber, joins the cast to spread more Melissa rumors. Cause we haven't had this storyline for the past three seasons. YAWN!

New Housewives Nicole and Teresa are twins with an over-the-top Jersey style. And that includes their tempers! Bravo describes the season as shocking and says, "The six wives begin to form a strong bond, but when shocking rumors of infidelity and backstabbing surface, it threatens to tear their friendships to pieces."

Ramona Vs. Kristen

Last night the fallout in the Berkshires continued! One might think if you, you know accidentally had a "knee jerk" reaction and threw a glass object at someone's face thus cutting them in the process, one might feel compelled to apologize. You know, sincerely.

One might assume since you just injured someone over the fact that they got your hair wet – hair that didn't look good to begin with and looked no worse after the horrific splashing that caused you to lash out and so aggressively you flung not only a glass object, but a boat oar at their face – you would feel some modicum of remorse. But alas, I presume none of us are Ramona Singer. So, yeah – logic does not apply. So that's what happened on last night's Real Housewives of New York.

After Ramona caused all this damage she faked a panic attack, lied, and got the hell out of dodge. You know what the most hysterical part in all of this is – Ramona is still trying to convince people she's classy. Oh girl… I think there's a whole chapter in Class With The Countess dedicated to you and explaining what it is you do that's not classy.

Lisa Vanderpump And Ken Todd Host Grand Opening Of Pump Lounge

Lisa Vanderpump's empire keeps on expanding!  Last night The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star celebrated the grand opening of her newest bar, PUMP, in West Hollywood. 

Lisa was joined by a number of reality (and non-reality) stars to christen the new hotspot.  Those who turned out included her co-stars (maybe not for the new season, though) Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, her good friend Lance Bass, and Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos.  Former OC stars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley hammed it up for cameras, as did Real Housewives of Miami's Joanna Krupa and many more, including Bobby Trendy and (not! Mohamed Hadid – serves me right for looking at the thumbnails through allergy eyes and no glasses this morning! haha!)

Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.

Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend.  BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!

New girl Lizzie Rovsek

All of the Real Housewives of Orange County got to meet Lizzie Rovsek on Monday night's episode, and I don't think anyone was surprised at how she was welcomed into the group by Vicki Gunvalson, were they? There's nothing more attractive than a super catty, middle-aged loudmouth acting like the mean head cheerleader in an 80's romcom, is there? Of course, Vicki was just marking her territory as far as Tamra Judge is concerned, and something tells me (duh, the previews!) that Lizzie won't be too sad to cut ties with her new neighbor. 

Admitting she doesn't have much to say in her Bravo blog, Lizzie begins, "I started writing this blog several different ways until I realized that I don't really have much to say or know what to say regarding this episode. Honestly, I didn't even know what to think after I watched it. I really didn't think Vicki would insult almost everything about me as she did. There are so many things to say and nothing to say at the same time," adding, "I don't pick people apart for the way they look or put down things that people have worked for in their life. Vicki says that it takes 'no skill' to be in a beauty pageant…Well, I tell you one thing it gives young women and that is confidence. And thank goodness I have some so I could handle the barrage of insults that came my way tonight."

American Humane Association Celebrates with Lisa Vanderpump

Bravo's queen of class recently sat down for a one-on-one chat with E!'s Giuliana Rancic, where she dished on her marriage, her co-stars, and her Vanderfabulous spin-off. Oh, how I've missed your snark and candor, Lisa Vanderpump! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star opened up about the most recent–and most tumultuous–season, as well as her falling out with former best friend and shadow Brandi Glanville, and Brandi's new team of Yolanda Foster and Kyle "Splits" Richards

All Things Real Housewives has recapped the interview in case you missed it. Of the show itself, Lisa recalls, “I do remember saying to [Bravo’s producers] that I wanted to leave the show with the same integrity I came in with. I just don’t want any BS editing. I’m no angel, I do make a few snarky comments and have a laugh. It is a television show. But I’m not in this business or on this show to put down my cast mates or get into a bitchfest, that’s not who I am, and I think if that day comes then I should leave."

aviva drescher yellow

Perhaps when Aviva Drescher started messing with Andy Cohen pet Carole Radziwill she made a big mistake! 

Aviva was missing from last week's Real Housewives of New York credits and will be for the next few weeks. Aviva was reportedly given a warning by producers and the network for refusing to attend cast trips and honor her contract. Aviva was "disciplined by producers" with a forced three-episode hiatus," a source tells Radar Online – basically they told her get in line or get out! I mean, "image consultant" Amanda Sanders was waiting in the wings, right?!

Andy Cohen

We all have very strong opinions about the Real Housewives – that is the understatement of the year, says Reality Tea's comment moderator, I'm sure – and we all have favorites and not so favorites! Personally, I love when nobody takes the shows too seriously, and we all have fun discussing the housewives latest fashion disasters, relationship drama, and friendship explosions. 

Andy Cohen, the man responsible for bringing us the best of the best and the worst of the worst, knows the housewives better than anyone. So, when he hosted the CLIO Image Awards for excellence in fashion and beauty last week, Allure Magazine asked Andy to name the "BEST HOUSEWIFE" in several categories. Who's the best dressed? Who's Andy's ideal dinner partner? Who has the best hair and the best booty? A few of the names shocked me!
