Reality Tea

lhh hollywood soulja boy

On last night’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, we got to see more than our fair share of silly altercations. This show has just become a “lather, rinse, repeat” cycle…one that Mona knows best. However, I do like an episode that shows Soulja Boy’s boyish charm (did I really just type that and mean it?) and Omarion in any capacity!

When the episode starts, Apryl and Omarion are practicing birthing techniques with the help of a midwife, but Apryl is getting more and more freaked out by the idea of a home birth. Omarion want his son to be circumcised, but Apryl challenges him to strip off the turtleneck from his own manhood when their son goes under the knife. Omarion begrudgingly agrees–if his newborn son is man enough to undergo the procedure, he is too. He shares that he told his mom to apologize to Apryl for her behavior at the shower. Apryl agrees to listen to what Leslie has to say, but she’s not burying the hatchet yet.

Update 3: Kenya Moore came through!  She not only posed with the check, but she really sent it!  DPSF shared on their website that she did indeed donate $20,000!  No word on NeNe Leakes matching the $20K, but we doubt she’ll want to be bested by Kenya, so I think it’s hopeful that she’ll come through!  P.S. Our own GoFundMe total raised is almost up to $1500!  

Update 2:  We’re stalled out at $1081 right now, but slow and steady wins the race, right?

Update: We’re standing still around $861 right now!  It’s a far cry from $40,000, but when you consider that my hope was to raise at least $5, we’re doing great!!  🙂   We appreciate that you guys are still sharing it on Twitter and Facebook!  Every little bit will help the foundation!

Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta may remember during this season’s reunion show (part 3), there was a $20,000 charity challenge issued. One star promised to donate $20,000 to the charity of the other star’s choice, so long as the other star sent her check first. The charity chosen on the reunion show was the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. It sounded like a grand gesture that would put their previous fundraiser event ‘misunderstanding’ to rest once and for all.

Fast forward to months later when the reunion aired and, after media outlets inquired with DPSF, the organization confirmed that neither star had yet sent their promised $20,000 check to the worthy cause. The stars tried to get out on a technicality, claiming they’d send their donation check only when the other mailed hers (and one even claimed to not remember it all). As a fan of the show and of genuine charitable giving, this didn’t sit well and it has bothered us ever since. We reached out to DPSF this week and they confirmed the status of the checks as still “not received.”  So, we want to do something about it.

The Blacks' Annual Gala 2014

Since there doesn’t seem to be any plans for a new season of The Real Housewives of Miami anytime soon, we can probably assume that the Bravo cameras weren’t present this weekend for Lea Black’s big event: the Blacks’ Annual Gala

To kick off the day, Lea was given the key to the city of Miami Beach by the mayor and the day (October 25th) was named for her!  Lea Tweeted, “Oct 25 just named Lea Black day in city of #MiamiBeach by mayor @MayorLevine what a surprise!”  This year Lea went big for the 20th anniversary of the event and managed to reel in Aretha Franklin for the charity fundraiser’s headlining entertainment!  

Also in attendance for the party: her former co-stars Lisa Hochstein and Karent Sierra as well as others like Elaine Lancaster, Courtney Love, Flo Rida and more.    Check out the pics below!

rhony season 7 featuring luann, heather, carole, and kristen in the hamptons

Real Housewives Of New York season 7 started filming and it’s photos galore from the cast! Bravo is trying to capture some of that old magic. They brought Bethenny Frankel back to hawk more products, fired her friend Aviva Drescher, and they’ve started out filming by bringing the glam! 

LuAnn de Lesseps is also back as a full-time Housewife in a cast that also includes Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill, Kristen Taekman, and of course, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. No word on whether or not another new lady will join the bunch as is rumored.

The girls have been filming in The Hamptons for LuAnn’s estate sale, in Arizona, and around NYC. And to really promote the season they’ve been sharing a ton of photos on Instagram and Twitter – which is unusual given that Bravo has always tried to keep things very under wraps in previous seasons. 

Interestingly, none of the ladies are posing with Bethenny (except LuAnn), despite all raving about her return. Glad they’re happy… Is Bravo trying to keep Bethenny’s storyline more of a secret to pull in viewers? Likely! Not surprising, however, is that Ramona and Sonja are at odds with the rest of the group. 

PS – does anyone else feel that Carole, Heather and Bethenny won’t get along? Bethenny does not like competition!

 

 MANZOD-TEXAS (3)

On this episode of Manzo’d With Children, it looks like a typical summer day in the Manzo household with Albie and Christopher practicing their chip shot in the backyard and Lauren moping around them.  Caroline decides to drop the bomb that they are heading to good ole Austin Texas next week to do some research on BBQ sauce. It’s the last family vacay before Lauren gets married and Caroline wants to make sure her bbq sauce is competitive with other brands out there before it hits the shelves. The whole family is on board and this should be fun!
 
As they’re packing their stuff up, we learn Albie and Christopher’s dog died last Christmas and the last memory they have is of him peeing on their luggage. Gross. Across the hallway, Lauren is packing stilettos and might want to throw in some gym shoes because you know, Texas has dirt. Good God. Christopher is eager to get to Texas and experience some authentic Texas goodies (gun fights, big hair, etc.). While I appreciate their stabs at humor, it’s just very Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie-esque and not funny at all.  Meanwhile, we learn Abie is now not eating meat and it’s apparently huge drama as Texas might not have any white meat for him. Oiy! 

porsha stewart reunion

The claws are out….again! After Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore opened her big mouth and made some not-so-nice comments about demoted Housewife Porsha Williams, Porsha is fighting back.

Clearly this has been brewing — I mean we all saw the reunion! — for awhile, but the current trouble started when Kenya claimed during an interview with Enstars that she had no thoughts about Porsha’s recent demotion on the hit Bravo reality series. Really, Kenya? No comment at all?

Dina Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita on Twitter

Dina Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night. Exactly like her return to Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dina showed up but added nothing. All she managed to do, really, was encourage Jacqueline Laurita to behave badly on Twitter. Not that Jacqueline needs much encouragement.

During the show, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy Cohen, “I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce. So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t.”

Dina replied, “That’s not true. Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. I wanted to meet with my brother more than anything.” In response, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy, “Chris Laurita favorited my tweet. He knows the truth.” and “I still have our text messages that I can show you.” Does anyone delete texts?
