Reality Tea

dance moms reunion

To be honest, the most pressing question that I hoped would be answered on last night’s Dance Moms reunion was if Lifetime just couldn’t afford to film a new intro sans Kelly Hyland and daughters Brooke and Paige…not that I mind seeing them each week, but it’s a bit strange. Right off the bat, Jeff Collins needs some matte powder to go with his newly darkened hair. Is he sweating from the stage lights or the guilt he feels for constantly promoting Abby Lee Miller? Speaking of, Jeff has Abby solo on the couch, and he applauds the Nationals win and questions how Abby feels about Chloe’s fifth place finish being the best solo number in the ALDC. Abby cites fierce competition as the reason…well, that and the fact she didn’t put Maddie in to compete. Wait, I thought Maddie refused when asked (you go, girl!). Abby then talks about Kendall’s disappointing routine in light of how strong she was last year as Jill gestures violently backstage via picture in picture. Abby’s all “I told you so” as the paid audience laughs.

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley stopped by WWHL to chat with Andy about what they’ve been up to since ‘leaving’ The Real Housewives of Orange County

We start off taking a stroll down memory lane with clips of Slade from when he started in season one of the show.  And then Andy shared a hilarious montage of clips of Tamra Barney (now Judge) slamming Gretchen.  

Gretchen says “Tamra Barney has lost all credibility with everyone, including the viewers. She’s the biggest lying, manipulating, conniving, narcissistic sociopath.  And I say she’s a sociopath because sociopaths don’t even realize that they do anything wrong. All they do is blame everyone else for their mistakes and that’s all she continues to do and the viewers saw it last season.”

Here’s our photo of the day!  Kenya Moore took to instagram tonight to show off her $20,000 check made out to Detroit Public Schools Foundation.  Kenya canceled a planned event to give the organization the money, but it looks like she does have the check ready to go.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star writes, “I’m proud to be able to give back and keep my promise to the Detroit public schools foundation to donate $20,000. Detroit is a resilient city and so am I. I will continue to shine despite the people who want to see me fail or try to turn my positivity in to negativity. See you soon Detroit! #igotyomoney #kenyalovesthekids #twirlsawayhaters.”

Watch What Happens Live - Season 11

Teresa Giudice has made a major step in putting her fraud case behind her. She has paid $200,000 in restitution that she was ordered to have in-hand at her sentencing trial — which was almost two weeks ago! (see update below)

But now, with this major hurdle out of the way, although there is still over $200,000 more to pay, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star can focus on what is really important. Preparing her family for her absence when she serves her 15 month prison sentence.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta - Season 5

Hot on the heels of Phaedra Parks announcing that she’s divorcing herself from providing Apollo Nida with spousal immunity, a judge is ordering Phaedra to discuss her husband’s crimes in an upcoming deposition! 

Phaedra has been embroiled in a lawsuit against a woman named Angela Stanton who self-published a book titled Lies Of A Real Housewife which alleged that Phaedra was the ring-leader in the original car racket scheme that got Apollo (and Angela) sent to federal prison. This is the first time Apollo went to prison, mind you.

A portion of Angela’s book was published in Vibe Magazine, despite the magazine issuing a disclaimer that there were no facts to back it up.  Phaedra sued Vibe, Angela’s publishing company, and Angela, settling out of court with Vibe and dropping the suit against the publishing company – but Phaedra’s suit against Angela rages on.

Now the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is required to give additional deposition because according to Angela’s attorneys Phaedra doesn’t want to reveal what she may or may not have known about Apollo’s illegal activities!

Dina Manzo on Florida

Will this rumor ever end?? Well, this is the Real Housewives of New Jersey, so chances are no, it will never end. So, am I the only one who thinks Victoria Gotti knew exactly what she was doing when she opened her big mouth to Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese?? Shame on her for continuing to spread such a gross rumor!

Then Dina Manzo got involved. Granted she was trying to put out the flames before an eruption instead of fan them! (Ahem, Hurricane Jim!) But, then she was caught in the middle just trying to make peace between TerEsa Aprea — who wanted an apology —  and Teresa — who didn’t think she should give one.

So just whose side is Dina on?
