Reality Tea

Dorinda Medley

To kick off this week’s roundup of the reality TV stars’ Instagram pics, we have Real Housewives of New York star Dorinda Medley doing what she does best: making us laugh. “I told you I never waste food,” she joked, “#summerfun #lettucesee.”

Look below for more selfies and snapshots, including Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby looking absolutely beautiful in Bermuda, Eddie Cibrian and Brandi Glanville celebrating Mason’s birthday (separately, of course), Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Gorga flashing back to his Speedo days (consider yourself warned), Bethenny Frankel showing off her amazing yoga skills, Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador working out, and more.

Tom and Luann D'Agostino wedding party

I don’t know about y’all, but the Countess has taught me everything I know about social graces. No, money really can’t buy you class. If she hadn’t shared that kernel of wisdom, I certainly wouldn’t have learned it from the bevy of reality stars that clog up my Bravo programming. Also, don’t be all uncool. Who wants to be uncool in the eyes of Luann de Lesseps D’Agostino? Not this girl, that’s for sure!

As you know, the Real Housewives of New York star tied the knot to her controversial beau Tom D’Agostino on the latest episode, proving, yet again, that money doesn’t buy class, but it can cause a middle aged woman to turn a blind eye to said new husband’s blatant shenanigans by going through with a very elegant wedding ceremony. And, might I add, what we know about elegance is thanks to Luann. It’s learned, my friend. Now, I’m going to pour out some of my Ramona Singer pinot for the Countess, as she is no longer, but what a great ride it was.

Ladies of London stars Caroline Stanbury and Luke Henderson

Even though Ladies of London isn’t airing right now (probably never again), we can’t get enough of (its breakout star) Caroline Stanbury and (the hottest makeup artist ever) Luke Henderson. So, needless to say, we stalk Luke and Caroline’s social media accounts like it’s our job. Oh, wait, it kinda is. 😉

The future of Ladies of London is uncertain (no official word from Bravo but Julie Montagu reportedly confirmed it will not return), but one thing is for sure, Luke and Caroline have not disappeared from the limelight. They’re currently in Los Angeles, hitting up the hot spots with other reality TV stars, like Second Wives Club star Shiva Safai, former The Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna, and more.

Little Women: LA Recap: Alaska Adventure

If you watched this week’s Little Women: LA, you’re likely still shaking your head over Terra Jole’s absolute meltdown atop a mountain in Alaska. After realizing her friend group was becoming sick of her antics, Terra responded by flipping the eff out – nearly having to be physically restrained by best friend Tonya Banks. Now Terra wants to explain her behavior – of course justifying all of it as a response to Christy McGinity Gibel’s mere existence!

Terra knows she’s not the most popular person right now, commenting, “This episode is borderline nuts … or maybe I am. Surely my inbox will see more hate mail after this episode and I’m okay with that. Opinions about the show are fun to read until they are hurtful towards your children.”

Bethenny-frankel-gray-beaded-sweater-rhony

After Ramona Singer unleashed on her in the Berkshires, Bethenny Frankel is steering clear of her Real Housewives Of New York cast mate – even when they’re stuck in the same dank, dark basement together. Otherwise known as Luann D’Agostino’s post-wedding party, designed to celebrate all of the a$$hats who made a mockery of her marriage.

Bethenny breaks down her thoughts on this week’s episode, which she says was certainly easier to live through than last. “Well, this week was a little lighter,” she comments. “If I can host a party where Dorinda Medley experiences ‘just the tip’ and Carole Radziwill swigs from a luge, then my holiday work is done.” Bethenny’s marketing and sales work is done too, I assume, as that holiday party obviously was one giant Skinnygirl commercial.

Real Housewives of Potomac reunion seating chart

To be honest, I did not want Real Housewives of Potomac to come back for a second season. The first season was just a bunch of blah episodes with story lines I could not get invested in. The second season started out the same way, but things are heating up and they have not even filmed the reunion episodes yet.

Mainly, I want to see what happens with Karen Huger. She’s been on the sideline so far, commenting and shading other people’s situations, but she was a major part of the trailer for the season. It looks like she has some sort of shady financial/real estate situation and I am excited to see how that all unfolds. The story line is a total #HousewifeMove if I’ve ever seen one, but there’s just always something intriguing about people who seem to be deceptive about their finances and have the nerve to go on reality television.

ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 13: Television personality Porsha Williams attends

Real Housewives of Atlanta recap

Out of all the Real Housewives, I never expected Kenya Moore to be the one to have a secret wedding. Who even knew that she had a boyfriend? This just seems so very random- especially since she didn’t have the wedding as a story line for Real Housewives of Atlanta. That shocked me way more than the random wedding did.

At this point, Kenya hasn’t even revealed the name of her husband. I get keeping a boyfriend private, but it does seem a little odd to marry someone and keep his name hidden. Then again, I’m not a reality star so I really don’t know how this life works.
