Reality Tea

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?

juan pablo and nikki ferrell

The internet is abuzz with rumors that former Bachelor Juan Pablo and his winning lady, Nikki Ferrell, might have finally called it quits. All the hubbub stems from two vague social media posts.

Former soccer star Juan Pablo Galavis posted to Twitter on October 26: “Sometimes you WIN, sometimes you LOSE… You will ALWAYS learn…” Fans took this to signal the end of Juan Pablo and Nikki’s relationship. One Tweeter even asked: “so is it true u and Nikki broke up?” No answer so far, however, from the Season 18 Bachelor.

honey boo boo fountain 161012

The saga of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo just gets sadder and sadder. Last week TLC canceled the show after Mama June was allegedly discovered dating convicted sex offender Mark McDaniel.

Mama June denied their relationship and insisted she would never do anything to hurt her kids. But here’s where it gets extremely shocking and upsetting. It turns out June’s eldest daughter Anna (Chickadee) is the one Mark molested! Mark spent 10 years in prison for forcing an 8-year-old to perform oral sex on him. 

Initially it was reported that Mark molested a relative of June’s, but Anna is now speaking out and naming herself as the victim. Even more upsetting, there is photographic proof that Mark, now a registered sex offender, has had contact with June’s 9-year-old daughter Alana Thompson since his release from prison in March.
