Reality Tea

andy cohen and joan rivers throwback photo

Joan Rivers, take-no-prisoners commentator on life, and a true icon passed away yesterday. 

I’ve always loved Joan. I heard an NPR interview with her years ago where she described using humor and wit to pull herself up by her bootstraps after her husband’s suicide left her financially decimated and alone. It not only inspired me, it filled me with awe and had me bawling in the car. Joan never shied away from the truth – whether it was about herself or others. And it was that bravery that made her so beloved. 

It’s women like Joan who have allowed me to do what I do today: have a job where I snark full-time to make people laugh, because she was one of the few who forged that path by demonstrating that women are irreverent, sarcastic, and that complaining can be therapeutic as well as entertaining. The Oscars will be sadder this year without Joan to question what celebs are wearing and what they were thinking when they put it on. I will miss her greatly. 

Andy Cohen, a close friend of Joan’s who has worked with her for years, reminisced about the amazing woman he knew and shared that when she passed they were in the middle of pitching a reality show they developed together this summer.


jac laurita

Jacqueline Laurita has decided to follow in the footsteps of Tamra Judge.  And that does not mean she plans to drink until she blacks out or makes things up just to stir the pot.

The former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has instead decided that Tamra had a good idea when she chose to make a change in the form of a new hairdo.


The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 6

It is no secret that this season of the Real Housewives of New York tanked in the ratings. So many unbelievable and made-up storylines annoyed viewers instead of entertained them. Then news broke that Andy Cohen and the other producers were looking to shake-up the cast in order to boost ratings.

You would think that with the number of high-profile women that live and work in New York City and the Hamptons, it would be a cinch to find some new — and interesting — ladies to join the cast. But apparently, many of those high profile women may have watched as well and now they have no interest in joining the circus.

tameka raymond atlanta exes

Tameka Raymond, formerly married to Usher, is one of the driving forces behind new hit show Atlanta Exes. Already making a name for herself on the show as a drama starter with a ‘don’t care who I piss off’ attitude, Tameka’s ultra-famous ex is now speaking out about his former wife participating in a reality show which could very possibly put him and their former marriage in the hot seat! 

There’s been rumors that Usher was extremely unhappy about Tameka potentially airing dirty laundry by appearing on the show, and he was allegedly worried that her inclusion in the reality TV world could damage his reputation. 

Usher denies all this! “No, no. I have no feelings about it whatsoever,” Usher insists. “Actually, I haven’t even seen it.” Ushers two children with Tameka will not be part of the show. 


nene leakes on broadway

Big things are indeed coming for NeNe Leakes! 

As she prepares for her final season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta, NeNe is certainly expanding her resumé! And now it includes a run on Broadway. 

NeNe has just signed on to play the Wicked Stepmother, Madame, (can we talk about perfect casting) in Cinderella. NeNe will make her stage debut on November 25th as the show rounds out its final run. 



Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles spoiler alert – Josh Flagg shows three new properties in Venice Beach! Yessss!

This week we find James Harris at home in his bathrobe, still moping from last weeks’ spat with David Parnes over the marketing of Faring, their $48m listing in Holmby Hills . His pretty South American (?) wife, Valeria, finally speaks and offers some tough love with a bit of ego stroking to get him back on track and earning the bacon. She seems to know how to handle her husband!

Josh Flagg has returned to the Dolce Vita restaurant, where he is carted in by Colton in a golden wheelchair. Yes, a Golden Wheelchair! Who knew those even existed??? Josh tells him that he fell in their yard. Pruning trees. Colton, who apparently was not around at the time of the incident, is not buying it and wants to know what really happened. Josh sheepishly tells him that he was standing on a stool dusting dirty vodka bottles, which upset his sciatic nerve. This makes more sense. He needs a drink now – a dirty martini! Colton gives him the side eye about drinking when he is on painkillers, while Josh asks him for a walking cane to go with his wheelchair.   Colton is so sweet. I often wonder if he ever takes Josh’s’ dry sense of humor at face value?


Season 4 of Shahs of Sunset has officially been announced by Bravo. “It is official. Shahs of Sunset season 4 will premiere this October,” shared Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. “More drama than any therapist can handle!”

While the cast hasn’t officially been confirmed, we know Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mike Shouhed, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Reza Farahan, and GG are in and Lilly Ghalichi is out. The screen shot above suggests there’s a new woman to annoy MJ take Lilly’s place. Based on the cast’s Instagram photos, my guess is that the newbie is Asifa Mirza. We shall see!

See a sneak peek of Shahs of Sunset season 4 below. I’d say hurry, but nothing’s changed. We see MJ crying, Asa silently judging, GG drinking, Reza pretending he’s Ghandi, and Mike blankly staring. I miss Lilly already.
