Reality Tea

tamra judge grandma

Looking to revise (but more likely reprise) her less than stellar image on this season’s Real Housewives of Orange County, resident backstabber Tamra Judge shares why she didn’t invite any of her castmates to son Ryan and daughter in law Sarah’s baby shower, how new girl Meghan Edmonds may have a bigger mouth than her, and why Vicki Gunvalson is already telling lies.

In her Bravo blog, Tamra begins by sharing her excitement about becoming a grandmother to 4-month old Ava, and step-grandma to Sarah’s previous three girls: “Yep it true…I am a Tam-Ma! I finally got the baby I wanted. Ava is now 4 months old and the cutest little girl I have ever seen. It seems like overnight I became a grandmother to four adorable girls. Sarah has three girls from another relationship, Ella 5, Brooklyn 12, and Emily 10. Ryan is up to eyeballs in girls now. My daughter Sophia is so very happy to be an aunt to girls practically her age.” Tamra also thanks her party planners for throwing hay everywhere to “transform” her gym into a virtual honky tonk, saying, “I can’t believe that behind all those bales of hay was our Fitness studio, CUT Fitness, the transformation was beautiful.”

 Rumer Willis(1)

Rumer Willis and that hot piece of man-candy Val Chmerkovskiy tore up the dance floor this season on Dancing with the Stars, taking home the mirrorball trophy.  Rumer is opening up in this month’s issue of Glamour magazine about what the show did for her and more.  Take a peek at some excerpts from her interview below. 

Holly Madison

With the release of her memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, less than two weeks away, Holly Madison is sharing disturbing details about her life inside the Playboy mansion as Hugh Hefner‘s No. 1.

Holly‘s also dishing on former Girls Next Door co-star Kendra Wilkinson. Do you remember Kendra? She’s been on a few – or fifty – reality TV shows since she left the Playboy mansion.

In her book, Holly claimed Hugh offered her “thigh opener” drugs the first time he met her. Creepy, right? Yet, despite the warning signs, Holly stayed the night and moved into the mansion a few weeks later. A decision which led to years of verbal and emotional abuse.

Teresa Giudice hawks Fabellini

Despite a court report stipulating that federal prosecutors were lawfully allowed to seize Teresa Giudice‘s assets to satisfy her restitution debts, Teresa’s out-spoken attorney James L. Leonard Jr. denies that’s that the case!

Teresa owes more than $400,000 in federal restitution as part of her sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. A court order showed that prosecutors made a deal with the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star to turn over a 25% portion of her Bravo paychecks, along with 50% of her income from a rental property she owns, in addition to seizing her personal assets, such as her 2005 Maserati  and furniture from her NJ mansion (currently in foreclosure and on the market.)

Mr. Leonard explains that contrary to reports, that deal was arranged by Judge Esther Salas and prosecutors as a ‘just in case’ Teresa didn’t make scheduled payments – which she has been.

Heather Thomson at Bravo/NBC Cable Upfronts 2015

Heather Thomson does not shy away from being called bossy – in fact, she embraces it and counts that personality trait as being integral to her success as a businesswoman

“I am a boss,” states Heather. “There are all different types of people. Not everyone has those leadership skills, or steps out, or has that real Type A personality.”

The Real Housewives Of New York star has butted heads with castmates over her outspokenness and take charge attitude, but she feels it’s served her well. However, if Heather were involved with one of the ladies in a business environment, it’s surprising who she’d choose to work with. For instance – if Heather had to hire a Housewife as an apprentice she would hire Ramona Singer “in a second.”

Reality TV Listings The Bachelor

America’s worst boyfriend? Maybe, but now he’ll possibly be America’s worst cook too! Ex-Bachelor contestant Chris Soules is not hiding from the limelight after his split from fiance’ Whitney Bischoff. Chris, along with other reality has-beens stars like Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Kendra Wilkinson will be appearing on the Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition, according to Entertainment Weekly. 

The show, hosted by Food Network celebrity chefs Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray, gathers a group of “kitchen-challenged celebrities” and subjects them to a culinary boot-camp of sorts. Production, which is already underway, reveals that Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jaleel White, and Barry Williams will also be joining as willing victims, er, cast members. A grand prize of $50,000 for charity will go to the celebrity who outlasts and out-cooks the others.

June Shannon appears on Extra.

Unfortunately, I can’t go back to an easier time when memories of “go-go juice” and “sketti” served in the finest of Cool-Whip containers meant that life was simple, back when one’s only concerns were exposing forklift foot if a water park’s rip-roarin’ slide proved too much for a pedicured ankle sock or whether a scheduling conflict with the local railroad would create a loud, late night train situation. Nope, I can’t hop in my Kuntry Store purchased time machine and unlearn all I now know about the folks of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Thanks June Shannon.

When TLC’s cash cow was at the height of popularity, the line was clearly drawn before those who (like me) found the family’s ridiculous antics equally endearing and disgusting and those who thought the show’s fans were verging on insanity. Sure, the six-year-old beauty queen wannabe Alana Thompson was sassy to the point of rude, but her one-liners were everything. The family was open about their past struggles (June, a grandmother in her mid-thirties has four daughters from various incarcerated men), but who am I to judge? Plus, what’s not to love about Sugar Bear?
