Reality Tea

rhoc-kelly-vicki-birthday-min

Kelly Dodd recently announced that she’s divorcing Michael Dodd (again), and after recently selling their beach-front mansion for $6 million (!), Kelly has decided to look in a “more suburban” area that’s better for her 10-year-old daughter, Jolie.

Well, I guess that means Kelly is also leaving Shannon Beador, as the Real Housewives Of Orange County frenemies are also neighbors in Quiet Womanhood

My Kisses Are Very Private

If you’re a long-time fan of Survivor, you probably know and/or follow Gordon Holmes (and if you don’t or aren’t, then please do!). Gordon has been covering Survivor since Season 17, “Survivor: Gabon,” and is one of the top Survivor press members out there. He is the curator of the Survivor Hall of Fame and covers Survivor for XfinityTV.com with weekly recaps, exit interviews, and his trusted “Survivor Power Rankings.”

Nearly as long as I’ve been covering Survivor professionally (since Season 20, “Heroes vs. Villains“), I’ve been chatting with Gordon Holmes on my Podcast. Typically we chat prior to the beginning of each season, but we thought it would be interesting to switch things up this season and chat during Season 35. Keep reading for some highlights from my most recent interview with Gordon and for a link to the full Podcast discussion.

Terra-Jole-Horns-Hair-TH-LWLA

Attention Little Women: LA viewers: Terra Jole has yet another show in the works. She already had her own spin-off series on Lifetime called  Terra’s Little Family and she appeared on the last season of Dancing With the Stars, but Terra still has more reality TV plans on the horizon.

If the Little Women: LA ladies were jealous that Terra was on Dancing With The Stars, there are definitely going to peeved about this news.

NeNe Leakes Tax Lien

What is going on with NeNe Leakes these days? First she goes off on an expletive-ridden rant against Kim Zolciak and her daughter Brielle Biermann and now she’s yelling at a random person who was in the audience during her stand up show.

Yes, it has to be tough dealing with the haters that come with being a reality TV star, but NeNe took her comeback way too far this time.

Mercedes

It seems like every cast member on Shahs of Sunset is done with Asa Soltan Rahmati and her vagueness. No one expects someone to share every single bit of her life just because she’s on a reality TV show, but what do we know about Asa? She has been on this show the whole time and all she has done is sell caftans and try to convince us that diamond water is a real thing. No wonder Mercedes “MJ” Javid is lashing out.

The rest of this cast really bares it all. Sure, it takes a lot of poking and prodding for some of them to actual admit the truth – cough, cough Shervin Roohparvar and Mike Shouhed – but they all end up putting themselves out there for the sake of being real for the show… except for Asa. As expected, MJ did not hold back when she was asked about Asa during her latest Watch What Happens Live appearance and Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis were living for it.

Shahs of Sunset Recap

We are in for yet another New York edition of Shahs of Sunset this week, but finally get to see what is going on in L.A. with those left behind – Shervin Roohparvar, Asa Soltan Rahmati, and Destiney Rose, who I keep forgetting is a cast member.

It doesn’t look like L.A. is missing the Shahs much and I’m pretty sure New York will be happy to get rid of them but first, we have to suffer through Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s life-changing, earth-shattering, coming of age bit part in an off Broadway play that she keeps talking about. In case we haven’t been taking her seriously up to this point, she has learned her lines and thus, turned her chaotic life around in one single unpaid job opportunity. To quote Reza Farahan, it only took 35 years.

Luis-Molly-Dark-Shirts-Field-90-Day-Fiance

We asked, we believed, and we received! TLC’s 90 Day Fiance has scrounged up another batch of betrothed couples from across the globe to show us just how dangerous the internet can be. Yes, five brand new couples and one set of familiar faces (hello Nicole and Azan!) are poised to broadcast their epic travails of love and con-artistry for our viewing pleasure. For all of you long-time 90DF fans, welcome back, friends! For those of you wondering, WTF is this show and why should I watch it? I implore you: SET YOUR DVR NOW. You’re welcome, in advance.

As a reminder, the premise of this show follows American men and women who have fallen in love with foreigners who, when they arrive in the U.S. on a K-1 “fiance” Visa, will have exactly ninety days to marry their captors partners. Joining Nicole and Azan this season are newcomers Elizabeth and Andrei, Annie and David, Aika and Josh, Molly and Luis, and finally – the number one contenders for actual love and happiness (how refreshing!) – Evelyn and David. Last night’s premiere introduced us to most of the couples, and there’s a lot to dissect – so let’s get our dumpster diving on, shall we!
