Reality Tea

TLC promoted Breaking Amish as a show about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, leaving their communities to experience life beyond the church. Millions tuned in to watch  Kate Stoltzfus, Abe Schmucker,  Rebecca Byler,  Jeremiah Raber,  and Sabrina High walk away from their family and friends to chase their dreams in New York. We felt sorry for these people for being exploited by TLC but the joke was on us! Almost immediately, Breaking Amish was proven to be a sham.

KateAbeRebeccaJeremiah, and Sabrina weren't as new to modern electronics, driving cars, and English clothes as they portrayed themselves to be on the show. For crying out loud, most of the cast had marriages, divorces, and children below their belts before TLC supposedly plucked them from the farm. However, there's no doubt in my mind that TLC knew all of this and coached them to "play Amish" for the sake of the cameras. I also think TLC hoped the viewers would figure it out, expose the cast's lies, and create a huge scandal. And that's exactly what happened. Does this bring us back to feeling sorry for the poor kids? For me, no, because most of them acted like jerks when their lies were exposed. 

Apparently, fake stories, liars, and misogynistic a**holes (looking at you, Jeremiah) sell, because Breaking Amish was a ratings success for TLC. There are rumors about a second season, but Kate reportedly doesn't want anything to do with Breaking Amish Season 2.

Yes, we have ANOTHER Real Housewives of New Jersey post for you on this fine Wednesday morning! As fast as we type up one round of news, something bigger and better comes our way to contradict the last bit!  We need a nap.

Our favorite celeb journalist Tom Murro spilled some hot tea on the upcoming season's casting and filming.  Tom's source shared this juicy tidbit (juicy, but it gives us the serious sads), "All of the Housewives are back for the 5th season. Danielle has NOT been asked back and Kim D has not been given a contract, but has a small role (and not that of a Housewife).  Teresa has friends they they have asked to film with her but not offered contracts yet or to be Housewives."

Love and light, readers, love and light.  What do you do when one of the housewives franchises has become beyond toxic?  Well, if we're talking about Real Housewives of New Jersey, you'd bring back the most controversial woman ever…prostitution whore Danielle Staub

The former stripper, singer, stage mom, perpetual victim, and employer of personal security is set to return in the upcoming season to set the record straight about all the drama she was reportedly stirring up behind the scenes with Melissa Gorga about the table-flipping Teresa Giudice.  Now, I am terrified of Danielle.  I wouldn't want to meet her or her "friend" Danny in any sort of dark alley situation, that's for sure.  However, this new twist could be very interesting. 

Will Danielle side with the one woman who hated her the most in an epic effort to take down a shiny sister-in-law?  Will Danny return to intimidate Poison Gorga while plotting to bring an end to the Manzos and their blk water?  Can we get Ashlee Holmes back for an episode or two to rip out more of Danielle's weave?  Oh, the possibilities are endless.

Last night's Flipping Out continued the insanity with Jeff Lewis, Jenni Pulos, Gage Edward, Zoila Chavez, and crazy Andrew.  Actually though, the episode was really sad.  It seems to be the downfall of Jenni and Jeff's friendship, which of course would mean the demise of their long-time working relationship.  There is jealousy and deception from both sides, and if it continues, it's easy to see why it was so easy for Jeff to slap Jenni with that lawsuit.  It was actually kind of heartbreaking to watch. 

Right off the bat, Zoila announces her fake pregnancy while Jenni's alter ego Deb calls Eddie the carpenter.  She's hilarious.  Just start with the craziness…do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars.  Poor Eddie is stuck coaching t-ball while getting hazed by Deb.  Jeff loves that Jenni doesn't care at all about what people think of her.  Jenni and Jeff head out to their project.  Jeff is surprised to learn that Jenni wants to start trying to get pregnant immediately.  She gives us a quick lesson on how to make a baby.  Jeff isn't ready for a Jenni pregnancy.  He still hasn't recovered from Jenni's wedding.  They arrive at Jeanne's house, and poor Jenni plays a prank on her husband Tommy Shaw, front man of Styx.  Jeff feels like he's doing a lot of free consultations for Jeanne to repay Tommy for singing for free at Jenni's wedding.  Jeanne hasn't asked for the extra perks, but Jeff feels guilty that Jenni took advantage of their clients.  Jeff tries his hardest to convince Jeanne that she needs to do further renovations to increase their property value.

Jenni, Jeff, and Vanina are discussing Jeff's new paint line.  He and Gage are partnering with paint company Dunn-Edwards.  Jenni hopes he'll name a color after her and call it Cougar.  The rest of the names they come up with I would blush if I had to type here.  DTF is the tamest of them all.  At Spring Oak, Gage and Jeff are awaiting a representative from Dunn-Edwards to come meet with them about the line.  Gage is hoping that the paint will be a new form of revenue that will free up Jeff to start thinking about starting a family.  Jenni is all dolled up for the meeting, and both she and Gage are hoping Jeff won't make things uncomfortable for the rep with his inappropriate humor.  The group toasts the deal, and Jeff starts in on paint names.  Gage is freaking out about the names, as he should be.

I could barely type that title with a straight face. Yes, you read that right.  Kim Kardashian is heading off to the Middle East next week for two Millions of Milkshakes store openings and plans to meet up with local political leaders to get some schooling on deep issues.  Like bigger issues than which self-portrait to send out on Instagram to your five million adoring followers.  Or sharing how awesome your side-part is today.  Or the dolphin in your backyard.

Kim is heading to Kuwait and Bahrain next week and is hoping to learn a little about the unrest in the Middle East  – in between her appearances at Millions of Milkshakes.  A "source close to Kim" (on TMZ this is code for Kris Jenner) tells the site, "Kim wants to be as informed as possible … so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area."

Last night's Teen Mom 2 brought tears, tears, and more tears.  Leah Messer finds that a reconciliation is not in the cards, while Jenelle Evans continues to screw up her life one failed drug test at a time.  Kailyn Lowry can't understand why Jo Rivera is playing her.  It's totally different than when she did it to him!  Finally, poor Chelsea Houska.  I think all that bleach has permanently affected her brain and her judgment.  Who am I kidding?  I am giving her hair dye far too much credit!

We begin the episode with Leah.  She's upset that estranged husband Corey Simms doesn't want to try to salvage their relationship.  She only cheated once, so what is the big deal?  Their twins are precious, but they are even cuter when they are biting their mom.  Leah receives an e-mail from her attorney about a settlement agreement.  Also not wanting to reconcile is Jo with his ex Kailyn.  Kailyn is sad that Jo has moved on with his own video vixen, but at least her bestie is home from college to keep her company.  She tells her friend about her love triangle with Jo and Jordan, as well as her non-existent relationship with her mom.  It's been five months since the pair has talked, so Kailyn calls her.  After being sent to her mother's voicemail, Kailyn has Isaac leave a giggling message of nonsense before she talks.  She doubts she'll get a call in return.

Chelsea is thinking about quitting her job at the tanning bed.  I don't think she's thought this through.  How is she going to maintain that natural orange glow throughout the winter months?  I am also confused as to what kind of headdress she is sporting.  Oh wait, that's her actual hair.  WTH?  Doesn't she want to go to beauty school?  Who would let her color their hair after seeing what she does to her own?  Chelsea and Adam Lind are hot and heavy again, despite Chelsea's best efforts to take things slow.  Bwahahahaha!  Adam arrives, and Chelsea begins the requisite baby talk we've all grown to loathe.  With her twentieth birthday being the following day, Chelsea requests her gift from Adam.  It's a promise ring.  He promises not to be as much of a d-bag as in season's past.  It's a start.  Baby Aubree bursts into tears at her mother's excitement.  Smart kid!
