2014 was a year for law breaking, court cases, tax issues, and bankruptcies from our favorite reality TV stars.
Below, we’ll update you on who owes what, whose divorce is a mess, who is suing, who is being sued, and who’s going to prison! In addition to adding several new cases to the rosters of law-dabbling reality stars, some stars continued to battle existing cases – such as Jacqueline Laurita‘s and Sonja Morgan‘s bankruptcies.
Meanwhile other stars finally resolved long-standing issues. Undoubtedly the biggest legal drama of the year was Teresa Giudice finally facing a judge and being sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to 4 counts of fraud, which all began way back in 2009 when the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star filed for bankruptcy for an incredible $13 million dollars of debt!
Back at the Dash doll house (I can’t believe I just wrote that), where the 2 employees that occupy the Hamptons pop-up boutique are residing, Khloe pays a visit to run her fingers through her hair, er, I mean, check-up on the gals. I’m going to make this interesting and count how many times Khloe touches her hair this episode. I will predict no less than 100 times. Malika, Khloe’s BFF, lets her know that Khloe intimidates the dolls and in order to make them feel nice and cozy, Malika wants to go out with all of them for drinks. Oh good lord. The Dash dolls: Durrani and Caroline + booze = one hot mess. Khloe agrees and this segment might be the only reason why I’m tuning in for the rest of recap tonight.
New girl on the block Demetria McKinney was all set to fight Kenya Moore for possession of Roger Bobb‘s cheerio-hoarding heart, but instead they ended up being friends and Demetria had major issues with Phaedra Parks!
Demetria is throwing major shade at Phaedra – and almost what sounds like slander – in a new interview. Demetria labels Phaedra “bitter” and says she got the “karma” she deserved regarding Apollo Nida and all the rumors swirling around her.
The wannabe Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is “absolutely not” friends with Phaedra. “She is easily intimidated by everybody. I understand that life deals everybody a different deck and sometimes the hand you’re dealt isn’t necessarily fair, but turning bitter and turning on everybody around you is just not cool,” Demetria seethes.
Every city of The Real Housewives franchise has gone through their share of cast members – some shows more than others. For a few cast members it was definitely time to move on, but for others – we just weren’t ready to let them go! And there are some for whom we still pine after all this time! This morning we are voting for the Former Real Housewife We Wish Would Return.
We have two new categories for you to vote on in our first annual Reality Tea Readers’ Choice Awards: Breakout Star of 2014 and Most Fashionable Reality Star of 2014.

And we also want you to share your pick for the best dressed reality star of this past year! (Yes, there really are a few of those!)
As with the previous categories, we’ve left you a space to write in your favorites if you’re not feeling the choices listed! Vote soon because all of the winners will be revealed later this week! Cast your votes below!
After Phaedra Parks hinted that she’d consider visiting Apollo Nida in prison for Christmas it doesn’t appear that she did!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star instead opted for a “quiet” traditional Christmas spent in Atlanta with immediate family. Just three days before Christmas, Phaedra was spotted with bestie Kandi Burruss and She By SheBroke at the Atlanta Mayor’s Ball, where she was all smiles.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family holiday photos. Enjoy!
