Next up in our Reality Tea Readers’ Choice Awards polls is our favorite crazy VH1 franchise: Love & Hip Hop!  We’re still not forgiving them for firing Benzino and Althea from Atlanta, but we admit that we can’t and won’t stop watching. 

Cast your votes for your favorite Love & Hip Hop stars from each of the franchises: Atlanta, Hollywood and “original flavor” (aka NY).   Voting results will be revealed next week. 

As always, there’s room for you to write in your favorites if they’re not listed below! 

If you’ve missed any of the previous votes, you can find them here.  (A few have closed already, but there are more available and more coming!)

Some reality TV stars were caught doing good deeds this week as they readied for Christmas.  Others were spotted doing some last minute gift shopping. And others hit the red carpet for pre-holiday events. 

Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin and their daughters attend the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Event for skid row homeless at the Los Angeles Mission.

Third time dad Scott Disick and his little almost-sister-in-law Kendall Jenner did a little last minute shopping on Rodeo Drive. 

Former reality star Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict attend the NY premiere of Selma while JWoww, Big Ang and Natalie Guercio stopped off to visit the Sirius XM radio studios. 

Below you’ll also find Kim Kardashian, Porsha Williams and more!

It seems the saga of Real Housewives of Beverly HillsKim Richards and her pitbull Kingsley isn’t over yet.  Kyle Schwab of Smashface Rescue shared on Facebook this week that he tried hard to help Kim with her dangerous dog, but she’s gone radio silence, even on the money she owes him.  

When a commenter asked Kyle (Schwab, not Richards..just for clarification) this week if he was ever able to help Kingsley, he shared that despite trying his hardest, it was a futile effort.  “Kingsley never showed up the next Wed morning after I worked with him and made room. I believe I was his only hope. Even though he tried to kill me. I thought he was workable and was going to do a joint custody thing where he was with me during filming for the safety of the staff and crew.  And or I would maintain him on set (off camera) during filming days.”

Reality TV is usually known for its TERRIBLE fashions, but once in a while a gal (or guy) gets it right. Rarely, but hey – it happens. Lord knows this list was a struggle, I had to really search and search – wrack my memory, so to speak – to find the good looks.

Reality TV stars have launched fashion lines (and jewelry lines and hair weave lines and shoe collections and handbag lines – enough lines that a girl needs a drink), bragged about their stylists, they’ve walked in fashion runways, and they’ve attended fashion shows, and they’ve posed in fashion campaigns (or on the cover of Vogue), and in some cases their spawn have become super models, but that certainly does not mean they’ve any fashion sense of their own

However, after careful consideration, lots of overlooking, and focusing on the positives here’s my pick for best dressed reality TV stars of 2014. Many people are on this list because of progress made – even if it’s merely outfit to outfit progress, but remember we’re thinking positively. <side eye>

Enjoy!

Yolanda Foster Brandi Glanville

Being friends with the often lewd and crude Brandi Glanville can be a real challenge, but her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Yolanda Foster is up for the task.  This week on Watch What Happens Live, Yolanda was asked about her friendship with Brandi and she explained that she refuses to kick her to the curb.  She compares it to a misbehaving child or dog.

We wanted to take a moment this morning to wish you all happy holidays!  Whatever you celebrate this time of year, we hope you have a wonderful time with your families and friends (whether it’s your Reality Tea friends here or the ones “out there”).  

As always, we’re grateful to have you, our readers, as our extended family and that you choose to hang out here with us (and with our many reality blog friends) as we obsess and snark a bit over our favorite little secret, reality TV! 

Posting will be on the lighter side today so our writers can relax and enjoy some time with their families and rest their typing fingers.   We’ll meet you back here tomorrow morning!  🙂

rhobh recap yolanda foster and lisa vanderpump

Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills friendships stayed in the freezer and Lisa Rinna dealt with important family matters. 

Eileen Davidson is finally mingling with the group. They start her off gently, with the upper echelons of Malibu society, to ease her into the currant of RHOBH, by sending her off to lunch with Yolanda Foster, as supervised by Lipsa. Eileen is surprised to learn she and Yolanda have several things in common: children, anguish over the amount of work required of bossing servants around, and a propensity for micromanaging toilet cleaning. Yolanda expects us to believe she cleans her own toilets. Correction: I believe she cleans My Love‘s toilet so she has an excuse to snoop through his personal quarters. You know, just in case he has a few wayward piano keys or Grammys tucked away! 

Eileen and Yolanda get along famously. Lisa is relieved. Her job here is done – now she can move on to more pressing personal matters, traveling to her hometown of Medford, OR to help her parents move out of her childhood home. To say it’s sad is an understatement, but it’s also touching and a really nice illustration that Lipsa has a kind soul, a good heart, and a down-to-earth, lovable spirit. She brings her teenaged daughters along with her. They are scoffish about Medford – even Lisa admits she never felt like she fit-in in small-town Oregon, because she was always dying to breakout her inner fabulosity – or her hoo-ha, preferably both (she admitted to wearing skirts so short you could practically see her “hoo-ha”).
