Reality Tea

Fullscreen capture 332016 120652 AM

I thought maybe watching Mob Wives would get easier, but it didn’t. I’m still so sad for Big Ang’s family and friends, and I want her co-stars to stop engaging in behavior that she would frown upon. Do you hear that ladies? The episode begins with Carla Facciolo, Renee Graziano, and Karen Gravano coming to cook for Ang who is recuperating form her lung surgery. While she is in a lot of pain, she’s up and about and anxious to find out if she’ll have to undergo chemotherapy. As the women nosh on a delicious looking spread, Karen shares her disappointment that her father has been denied early release. She blames his name…any other inmate with his record of good behavior would be back on the streets by now. Ang is just happy to toast her friends and be out of the hospital. 

Drita D’avanzo’s daughter Gizelle is celebrating her birthday, and her mother surprises her with the puppy she’s been begging to get for the last few weeks. This brings the miniature dog count in their family to two. Meanwhile, Karen is meeting with Brittany Fogarty, the newbie who must regurgitate everything that’s ever said to her by anyone. Karen complains about the court’s vendetta against her father. While Brittany can somewhat relate, she has never felt like Karen, that she has to defend her own name due to her father’s actions. Karen then decides to try to warn Brittany (yet again) of the pitfalls of being friends with Drita. Brittany hopes that her sharing Drita’s latest beef with Karen wasn’t considered instigating. She didn’t realize the history between the pair, and she’s taking herself out of their issues. Oh really? Their conversation turns to Brittany’s distaste for Carla and Renee, but she agrees to give them one more chance for Karen…since their fathers have so much history together.

Elena-Gant-Preston-DrOffice-Little-Women-LA

The big pregnancy reveal is finally upon us! Cue extreme, shrieky jealousy in every non-pregnant cast member in 3…2…1… Since the news of Elena Gant and Preston expecting twins broke last week, it was only a matter of time before this season of Little Women: LA touched on the subject. And it looks like we’ll be finding out if Terra Jole and Tonya Banks can mend fences after their epic fight at Jasmine Sorge’s family restaurant last week. Christy McGinity Gibel inserts herself as peace maker – and pizza maker! – to try. 

We begin with Tonya and Elena at the furniture store testing out new sofas. They discuss Jasmine’s party, which Elena says revealed Terra’s true feelings about them: i.e., that she still has some issues (to put it mildly). Terra was hurt that Tonya didn’t support her through baby Penny’s spinal decompression surgery, and Tonya admits she did drop the ball. Elena claims she reached out to Terra during that time, but Terra said she didn’t need any help. Both Elena and Tonya want to apologize to Terra, regardless. Which is the grown woman thing to do.

Yolanda Foster

Yolanda Foster went rogue with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog last week (and possibly got in trouble, as it was later wiped out, severely edited, and posted on Bravo), but she turned her blog over to Bravo this week. As per usual, it is 90% journey and 10% episode.

Yolanda‘s blog, which reads like her self-nomination for sainthood, begins, “As I watch the season unfold and observe myself going back six months in time, I feel so much gratitude for the improvement I have made and still hopeful for a full recovery.” Which she has tentatively scheduled on the day after her divorce from David “My Alimony Foster is settled.

The Mother Daughter Experiment kicks off!

Last night was the premiere of The Mother/Daughter Experiment, where six mother and daughter duos sought televised therapy to mend their complicated emotional issues. Becuase that always turns out well, right?!

Some of these participants, like Courtney Stodden (Couples Therapy) and Natalie Nunn (Marriage Bootcamp), have already done made-for-TV therapy. Judging by the results of Courtney’s boob job – seriously, are those things actually helium balloons??? – I would say round one was a failed experiment. Let’s hope round 2 improves things! 

Kim Richards and her daughter Kimberly Jackson arrive first. It’s clear that Kim is putting on an ‘I’m so not about drama’ act in the hopes that no one watching this show has also seen Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (We have.). It turns out the moms and daughters have to share a room, which isn’t too weird for Kim and Kimberly who usually share a bed. Kimberly seems sweet and like she was bamboozled into doing this.

To talk about what is going through their minds as Joe‘s surrender date grows closer, Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice will be on Entertainment Tonight this evening.

About his 41-month sentence, which begins March 23, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star shares, “I just want to get out as quickly as I can… and do whatever I can to get out.”

Kathryn Edwards

Running to Lisa Vanderpump with gossip from Camp Erika Girardi-Jayne looked like a rookie Housewife move to most. But Kathryn Edwards claims she sees nothing wrong with repeating Erika’s gossip and that “there was no ill will” intended on her part. Mmm hmmmmmm. OK, we’ll bite! Let’s go down this rabbit hole together, shall we?

In her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blog, Kathryn defends her actions. She also claims this dysfunctional dynamic within a group of women is all new to her; indeed, navigating her castmates’ “ulterior motives” is a full time job! She explains, “I’d like to remind everyone that I am just getting to know these ladies as a group, and I am clearly unaware of the history some of them may have and what may have transpired in the past. As I watch this now, seeing what you, the viewers, are seeing, I see tension between Yolanda [Hadid] and Lisa Vanderpump. I don’t know what it is, I don’t know what happened. Maybe it’s just the relationship Lisa has with Yolanda‘s former husband. Could that be it?”

Eileen is suspicious of Rinna

Are you ready to go to school? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Academy is open and Headmistress Eileen Davidson is itchin’ to educate us on each and every one of her castmate’s motivations and missteps! In her blog this week, Eileen literally breaks down the dirt among the women of RHOBH section by section, offering us her take on the camps being formed within the group, and some insight into which one she’s on.

Or is this a court case, Girardi-style?? Ladies and Gentlemen, Bravo gives us The People vs. Eileen Davidson! “Listen, this is all so confusing for me. It might be easier to talk about if I try to dissect each relationship dynamic, as it stands now, one section at a time,” explains Eileen, who submits the following…

Lisa Vanderpump

I feel exhausted. Why can’t the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills just have fun together and be friends? This show is fabulous when everyone on it is fabulous: fabulously dressed, fabulously wealthy, fabulously living, fabulously connected, and fabulously friends. When they resort to low-level manipulative pandering of ‘take down storylines’ – take downs of the same woman, season after season, I might add –  it becomes unbearably trite.

I get it – no one in the 90210 zipcode and its surrounding areas can stand Lisa Vanderpump! She’s too busy having fun with ponies to sweat y’all’s smallstuff, though. 

In case you’ve forgotten Yolanda Foster has Lyme Disease, and the only part of her brain that remains in functioning order is the manipulative faction. Ain’t that aces for her reality TV career! She’s got some inexplicable issue with LVP that’s gonna play out again and again until the 4 tenors sing off-key.
