Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
Well, it's a good thing that NeNe Leakes has I Dream of NeNe to fall back on in light of NBC's latest announcement. The network is canceling the Ryan Murphy created sitcom The New Normal after its first season.
While I found the show about a gay couple and their surrogate and her family to be quirky and funny, it garnered some controversy due to its subject matter. NeNe played the plucky side-kick Rocky.
Another day, another lawsuit seems to be the mantra for the Kardashian family, but this one actually ends with the little guy prevailing. Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe's cosmetics line Khroma Beauty is being renamed after a Florida based make-up line won its trademark dispute with the reality family.
The business called Kroma Makeup was seeking $10 million in damages, but instead Kroma is rebranding itself as Kardashian Beauty. The sisters' products have already been produced and are ready to hit the shelves, but plans have been put on hold due to the massive relabeling.
Last night Sheree "She By SheBroke" Whitfield made her return to Bravo on WWHL. I am pleased to report she is just as She By SheDelusional as ever. Thank goodness that some things never change! Although it's too bad Sheree had a "falling out" with Lawrence because her weave was not looking super great!
Andy Cohen, who loves to get a rise out of his guests, played the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star a clip of Iyanla Vanzant discussing Sheree's appearance on her show. Iyanla did not mince words.
"I think when people are allowed to get away with bad behavior for a long time they become very brittle when you challenge them. And I also think when someone is controlling they can't surrender," Iyanla said of Sheree.
Melissa and Joe Gorga threw a lavish party for their only daughter and celebrated with the attendance of several of their RHONJ costars. Somewhere else in NJ, Teresa and Joe Giudice celebrated Gabriella's special day. No word on how many thousands of pounds of lace were deployed to throw the whole thing together.
Teresa says the same day affairs were a coincidence and simply a matter of churches choosing the dates of the celebrations. I'm assuming the Gorgas and the Giudices attend different churches. Teresa did not attendAntonia's celebration.
Antonia's event was held at The Brownstone. I hope they didn't serve BLK Water. Photos of Antonia's celebration are below! Teresapromises photos of Gabriella's Communion are coming soon!
Media outlets were reporting a ton of different stories about who wanted what and who was refusing to return. Carole Radziwill confirms her reason for dragging her feet was money – and feeling taken advantage of!
"I was paid more at ABC as an associate producer and that was in the 90s! :)," she added. At the last minute Princess Carole decided to return.
