Reality Tea

Melissa & Joe Gorga

If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.

The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy. 

Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed

Although Shahs of Sunset is far from being the fun show that it used to be, these people really bring it when they appear on Watch What Happens Live. The shade throwing and tea spilling was at a high point when Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed stopped by the clubhouse.

Reza threw some major shade at Shervin Roohparvar. Mike continued to talk shit about Asa Soltan Rahamti. These two did not hold back at all.

D'Andra Simmons

Based on the last Real Housewives of New York season and the current Real Housewives of Dallas season, I feel like every Real Housewives cast needs to go on an annual Mexico trip. These episodes have the best mix of drama and fun times.

The episodes have also showed us a different side of D’Andra Simmons, who has had the tough task of being LeeAnne Locken’s best friend and joining the cast as friend of Kameron Westcott‘s –  who is far from a fan favorite.  I’m sure D’Andra had some vicarious stress since pretty much everyone else in the cast was arguing, but she managed to turn up and make some peace without overdoing it with the meddling.

Shahs of Sunset - Season 6

Well, another season of Shahs of Sunset has officially drawn to a close and instead of Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi ending up as the outcast of the season, instead we find Persian Pop Priestess and staple cast member, Asa Soltan Rahmati, exiled from this group of overgrown hooligans.

I think we all saw it coming when bestie/worstie of friends Reza Farahan didn’t exactly jump to Asa’s defense during her falling out with Mercedes “MJ” Javid over whether or not Asa used IVF to conceive her “miracle baby.” But let’s face it, MJ wasn’t really mad about Asa using IVF or not, she was really just pissed that Asa beat her to the punch when it came to having a kid. So MJ just found the weakest link in the Asa Chain (the fact that Asa isn’t forthcoming with all aspects of her life) and exploited it with the rest of the Shahs to get them on board with casting Asa aside. And it actually worked!

Brandi Redmond and Stephanie Hollman compliment one another on their outfits for the Honest Tea

Every person serves a role when it comes to reality TV. With that said, there’s no question that LeeAnne Locken is the person who drives every major story line on Real Housewives of Dallas.

Then there’s someone like Stephanie Hollman, who is there to lighten the mood and be the one who’s “just like us”…. with a way higher budget. Even though Stephanie and LeeAnne cannot stand each other, their differences make this show worth watching.

90 Day Fiance Recap: Parental Approval

Is it just plain naive to think that one couple on the train wreck of 90 Day Fiance could really, truly make it? Because I want that for Evelyn and David, young lovebirds who seem smitten with one another, are (somewhat) age-appropriately matched, and who share core values. Alas, the TLC machine might chew them up and spit them out by the end of season five, but until then, let’s pretend they are the real deal, okay? We need this!

In addition to Evelyn and David being introduced this week, we revisit the absolute sh*tshow of everyone else’s relationships. Nicole holds her daughter hostage goes to Morocco to further torture Azan, the other David (in Thailand) tries in vain to come up with enough scratch to pay for his bride, Annie. And Molly continues to delude herself into thinking that her much-younger fiance, Luis, is the love of her life – despite her eldest daughter’s protestations, not to mention her father’s warnings.

Tamra Judge & Heather Dubrow Reconnect

It’s time for another Instagram Roundup featuring photos from all our fame-loving reality stars. Above, Tamra Judge reconnects with her former Real Housewives Of Orange County co-star Heather Dubrow. “Fun times with @heatherdubrow #pleasecomeback,” she begged.

Tamra previously complained that no one had seen Heather since she quit last season, and none of the RHOC ladies have been welcomed to Heather’s 24,000 square-foot mausoleum to good taste. Kelly Dodd dished that Heather’s friendships were only for the show and no one could stand her.
