Reality Tea

 Tamra Barney at the Bravo 2015 Upfronts

It is the season of Tamra Judge‘s redemption – after becoming a born-again Christian, she has found Jesus and it has saved her from a life of being a hater!

After losing all her friends and getting in fights with all her Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars, Tamra recognized it was time to make a change. This season viewers will watch her get baptized. Facing criticisms that her new-found religion was nothing but a storyline to gain viewer sympathy, Tamra insists she has changed. And it’s definitely real. 

“I knew the journey I was on,” Tamra describes of wanting to make things right from her past. Although Tamra admits she has long way to go – like figuring out how to attend church every Sunday – but she claims she’s had a total “mindset change” since being baptized. “I think in the past six months I’ve felt like a new person. I’m not saying like, I’m perfect and I’m not saying I’m at church every single Sunday. I try to go every Sunday, I’m joining a Bible study …”

Caitlyn Jenner In Vanity Fair - Black Dress

Women earn only 78 cents on the dollar compared to men, but Caitlyn Jenner is bucking that trend (along with many others). She will reportedly be paid a whopping $6.4 million dollars for her new “docuseries” (reality show)  I Am Cait, which covers Caitlyn’s steps in transitioning from a man to a woman and will air on the E! network in late July.

“It’s the biggest paycheck ever given by E! for a solo reality show, and Caitlyn’s agent was relentless in getting her the huge payday,” an insider tells Radar Online. Sources claim that Caitlyn’s agent indeed played hardball, even shopping around other networks when E! didn’t initially cough up the money. “At one point, talks … had broken down because nobody wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn’s agent then began informal talks with other networks, and E! quickly came back to the table, ready to pay $6 million,” says the source.

Farrah Abraham Celebrates Birthday In Vegas

Awwww… (or should I say, “meh” because this reeks of a PR stunt!). Farrah Abraham just announced her breakup from boyfriend Simon Saran, the man who patiently accompanied her to countless adult entertainment events as she is a porn star who is not a porn star but got duped and trick-filmed into making a “celebrity” sex tape with six-figure payout, a hooha and anal mold, a blow-up doll, and much much more!

The Teen Mom OG star, who has a way with words – and everything else, announced her split from Simon on instagram to celebrate “National Ex Day,” accompanied by a photo of the two of them kissing. Farrah praised the moment as fond memories.

If you were wondering how long you’d have to wait for a new season of Little Women: LA, wonder no longer!  The show returns next month already!  And in a double dose, as Terra’s Little Family kicks off another season at the same time!  Lifetime is mixing things up with the Little Women: LA season 3 cast, adding two new ladies to the series – Jasmine and “Freakabritt,” aka Brittney Guzman

The cast shot new promo pics and have shared several on social media, letting the cat out of the bag that there are two new cast members.  It also would appear that Traci Harrison is stepping back a little.   She’s not featured in the main cast photos/promos, but she’s been included at some of the events they’ve filmed, according to the Instagram of her fellow co-stars.  Maybe this is Lifetime’s version of “friend of” instead of “full time member.” 

blood sweat and heels

I can’t believe it’s the season 2 finale of Blood, Sweat, and Heels! Is it just me, or was this season waaaaaaay too short? Bravo, please give us more of these ladies next season (and please, please let there be a next season, period).

In full disclosure, I have to admit I’m connecting to Mica Hughes recent loss of her 91-year old grandmother in a special way tonight, as I lost my own 91-year old grandmother just this morning. A second mother to me, she went peacefully, surrounded by love and family and I got to see her right up until the end. I know reality television is good fodder for snark (don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of it with this finale!), but it’s poignant to realize that we’re all connected in strange, surreal, and plain old human ways too. Now, on to the show. Which tonight, friends, is one HOT mess. 🙂

Married to Medicine

Married to Medicine‘s Quad Webb-Lunceford and Dr. Heavenly Kimes were Andy Cohen‘s guests on Watch What Happens Live tonight. Quad and Heavenly dished on Quad‘s drama with Lisa Nicole Cloud and where each of them stands with Mariah Huq.

Lisa Nicole defended her decision to run a background check on Quad during Married to Medicine, tweeting, “Background checks are a standard business protocol in business. No malice intended.”

On WWHL, Quad replied, “I think that’s a good cover for She Who Shall Not Be Named. We all saw my investors last season and she was not one of them. We were not doing business together whatsoever. She actually wanted a little something to go into the reunion with last year, but you will catch that tea later.”
