Reality Tea

Death of Fake Reality TV

With the help of reality stars Jon Gosselin, Ronnie Ortiz-Margo, Omarosa, Tila Tequila, and Big Ang, AOL held a mock funeral for “fake reality television” in Times Square to promote its new organic reality series Connected

So my first reaction to this ridiculousness was, OMG! The reality TV stars really will show up for anything! (And I was shocked professional camera chasers Slade Smiley and Gretchen Rossi weren’t there.) But I’ve come to appreciate that these guys don’t take themselves too seriously and are able to poke fun at the genre that made them famous. During the funeral, Jon buried an Ed Hardy t-shirt, Big Ang dumped a bottle of alcohol, and Ronnie said farewell to “GTL” and buried a dumbbell, tanning lotion, and a bottle of laundry detergent.

Check out more pictures of Jon, Ronnie, Omarosa, Tila, and Big Ang at the “Death of Fake Reality TV” and learn more about Connected below.

We all knew it was just a matter of time before Teresa Giudice broke her silence! And we all know it’s just a matter of time before her exclusive WWHL interview from Danbury is aired, right?!

Sharing a family photo with au naturel hair paired with Wet-n-Wild cosmetics straight from the commissary, Teresa, through her lawyer reveals she’s doing fine, but is homesick. “I miss Joe and my girls terribly,” the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star revealed. Joe Giudice confesses that he’s handling it the worst of all! Really?

“I cry more than the girls,” Joe says of leaving Teresa after their six-hour visiting days. “I pretty much cry every time I leave. Like a little baby.” As for how their four daughters are coping, Joe admits to Us Weekly that their youngest, Audriana (5) thinks mommy is “working” (uhhhh…) and that Teresa keeps in contact regularly through phone and email.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 5

She’s not a Jedi Master, but she does play one on TV. Eileen Davidson calmly and eloquently cuts right through the BS in nearly every Real Housewives of Beverly Hills interview she does, and she’s doing the same in her Bravo blog this week. After last night’s RHOBH Reunion, Part 1, Eileen quips that she had concerns from the beginning about being placed on the crazy couch with Brandi Glanville, Kim Richards, and probably-ready-to-leave-because-she’s-ill Yolanda Foster

“My first RHOBH reunion started off with a surprise, when I walk onto set and I’m told to sit next to Kim. I thought about running, but then I reconsidered. Ha!” says Eileen. After fielding a few softball questions about her hubby Vince, Eileen says things got more interesting, and more sad – when it came to Kyle Richards relationship with her sister, Kim. Eileen comments, “I’m sad that Kim and Kyle aren’t speaking. This is a big, messy, and complicated situation. Maybe the time apart will be good for them? I’m hoping so.”

Nickelodeon's 28th Annual Kid’s Choice Awards

As a native Pennsylvanian, I must admit the latest Abby Lee Miller news is making me do a happy dance – a dance that would not likely make the cut in Abby Lee’s eyes, I’m sure. But a happy dance nonetheless! Because, my friends: Abby is moving to LA! And taking her studio – and her show – with her.

According to TMZ, Dance Moms star Abby Lee is “bringing her east coast, in-your-face style to the west coast … and setting up shop in L.A.” She’ll be sharing the same studio that Dancing with the Stars uses for their rehearsals while she waits for her very own studio space to be completed. Much like the Red Room in 50 Shades of Grey, Abby’s new studio will surely be tricked out with the torture devices and pleather-ish decor that reflect her “particular taste.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 5

Last night the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion kicked off with plenty of unflattering metaphors for Brandi Glanville, who lived up to every single one of them!

I don’t want to sound like I’m bullying Brandi, but here’s the thing: if she would just own maybe a smidgen of her behavior or actions (and apologize without conditions) I think it would go a long way in everyone believing that she has a good heart, is good a mother, and is a person who at least on occasion behaves like an adult. Instead Brandi resorts to accusing Lisa Vanderpump (who can’t even be bothered to put out for Ken more than twice a year) of being desperate for the 23-year-old manwand of her son’s childhood bestie. This is because LVP called Brandi out for being too drunk too f–k her Amsterdam-ian fling (according to Andre, who unfortunately was not Skyped during the reunion!)

Dance Moms girls

Thanks for tuning in to episode 1,000,314 of this season’s Dance Moms. You, like myself, must be a total glutton for punishment! Abby Lee Miller was up to her old tricks again, although this time she wasn’t yelling. Instead she was incessantly praising her star Maddie. Don’t get me wrong, I think Maddie is ridiculously talented and it’s not her fault her teacher alienates her with favoritism. However, it was a bit odd given that Maddie wasn’t present on last night’s episode to receive said praise. After a successful competition last week, the girls are missing Maddie who is performing on SNL with Sia. Melissa hates that she isn’t in New York with her daughter but she has to be there to support her other daughter…what’s her name? Oh, yeah, MacKenzie. I may just call her Maddie’s sister to make it easier. After all, that seems to be how everyone else refers to her. 

Abby congratulates the team on a clean sweep and cites that it’s quite a big deal she’s chosen to be in Philly with them instead of in the Big Apple with Maddie. Jessalyn is excited to be returning to LA in a week now that JoJo has a team jacket. What a tease! The previews insinuated they were heading back to L.A. this week! How long are they trying to make this season? Is it lasting until 2018? Abby reminds her team that they are pretty much nothing without Maddie, but she’ll be interested to see how they fare in Maddie’s absence. She’s guessing not very well…
