Nothing like coming home from a twelve hour work day to drama filled two-hour premiere of Mob Wives! I don’t know if it’s a punishment or Christmas all over again, but I’m going to go with the latter. Karen Gravano is living the dream, back in New York after a stint in Arizona, and she wants her teenage daughter to recognize how fortunate she is to live this lifestyle. Meanwhile, Renee Graziano is hoping to leave drama and negativity in the past. A cook-out at Karen’s house is just what she needs, even though both women realize that Karen’s daughter Karina is going to give them multiple coronaries. She’s way too pretty to be a teenager, but Renee hopes that Karen will allow Karina to mermaid model for her Mob Candy line. At least they can keep an eye on her that way.
Big Ang is recovering from throat cancer, and with her blonde hair, she looks like a boss. She is extremely grateful for her friends’ support during her surgery and following ordeal, but she credits husband Neil for being her rock. I love Ang, and I am thrilled to hear she’s cancer free (as the season airs, prayers are with her now). Her doctor touts an organic diet and exercise…oh, and she needs to quit smoking. It’s hard. Also difficult? Drita D’Avanzo’s household. She’s juggling having growing girls and her husband home from the clink. While she’s thrilled to have the balance of a normal family, she wants her daughters to realize how far she’s come. Drita takes them on a tour of the projects where she grew up so they appreciate the beautiful home and pool they are fortunate enough to have. She’s worked terribly hard, and she wants her daughters to appreciate the struggle she’s had to become the woman she is today. Of course, a book about her life is the next step in her empire…if she can convince her husband Lee that it’s not disloyal to their lifestyle.
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband? Despite the real issues at stake (so Cynthia claims), the drama surrounding the couple’s relationship sometimes come off as manufactured at best, and boring at worst.
In a last ditch effort to convince Real Housewives of Orange County fans that he’s not a liarface, Brooks Ayers is writing a tell-all book, in which he calls out producers for fabricating the “cancer gate” storyline for ratings.
Brooks continues to insist that he did not lie about having cancer. “I didn’t fake cancer,” he tells Page Six. “Who in their right mind would fake cancer?”
Ahhhh… girls can dream right? We here at Reality Tea got to thinking about what we would do if we won the $1.5 billion dollar Powerball Jackpot drawing tonight, besides, obviously giving ourselves raises and bailing Teresa Giudice out of tax debt.
Yes, if we won the jackpot we could do many a’splendored things to better reality television, from starting our own reality shows (yes, please!), to completing ChateauSheree!
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills are now holding the Hamptons hostage. Lisa Vanderpump is pissy because she’s forced to stay in a cut-rate hotel, to attend a party Farrah Abraham is crashing, to celebrate the cover of a magazine literally no one has heard of. As Bethenny Frankel said, “Is it like one of those free magazines?”
Worst of all: Lisa must pretend to be happy about this so-called honor and has dragged poor Ken along for the ride. Did Ken not look about ready to lie down under the wheels of somebody’s limo just to make the high pitched voices stop? Ken-Aged-70 isn’t over the hill, he’s over it ALL.
Still stranded at the White Party, over dinner Lisa morphs into a CIA Investigator, one step away from waterboarding Eileen Davidson with a Chanel purse and a Vodka Tonic, as she asked probing questions, carefully worded in provocative terms, about Eileen’s marriages – specifically how Eileen met Vinny and when.
The recently ailing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Yolanda Foster has officially filed for divorce from her husband of four years,David Foster. The Dutch former model’s documents were filed at the Los Angeles Superior court yesterday and the grounds for the decoupling, ‘irreconcilable differences.’ The marriage is Yolanda’s second and David’s fourth.
News of the Fosters’ divorce came as a shock to viewers of the reality show, as the pair always appeared so loving and caring towards one another. On December 1 of last year, the Fosters made the decision to release a statement explaining why chose to part company:
After a mediocre first week of Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller is trying to keep her crazy in check, but she’s really just in major denial.
After lectures on punctuality and dedication, Abby is running late. She needs her make-up artist to make sure her eyebrows look better. Jill recognizes this behavior as Abby being on the verge of a breakdown. When the ALDC convenes for the pyramid, Maddie and Kalani are on the bottom due to their absences. MacKenzie and Kendall round out the bottom row. Nia is in the third spot for managing JoJo’s hamster ball, and JoJo places second for actually dancing in the ball. Brynn is in the top spot for winning her solo. Abby grants her solos to Kendall, MacKenzie and Nia, snarking that their mothers think they are good replacements for Maddie. Melissa sticks up for MacKenzie at every turn (for the first time), and Abby doesn’t appreciate her new stance. In a twist, Abby makes the announcement that she’s going to start training a mini team of young girls who she hopes will redeem her name with her sub-par competition team. The mothers are less than thrilled with this news.
Andy brings up the ignorant comment David Foster made to Lisa followingYolanda Foster‘s explant surgery: “Ken has better tits than her now… bigger.” Lisa defends David, saying, “I think David tries to make light of everything and he was just kind of throwing some levity into what has been a pretty depressing situation.”
On whether or not David and Yolanda‘s split took her by surprise, Lisa says, “I didn’t see it coming. Not at all. I was absolutely blindsided by that. There was a lot of ‘my love’ and I know it’s been challenging for sure but I’m really sad to see it because I love them together as a couple.”
