Oh dear… it seems semi-scripted reality television is becoming a totally scripted movie! Fox Searchlite has just acquired the rights to untitled pitch that very closely resembles the plot of Basketball Wives!
It seems master puppeteer executive producerShaunie O’Neal is interested in spreading her wings into the movie making biz and has been working with famed writer-producer Tracey Edmonds to produce a film that draws “loosely from the lives of O’Neal and some of her friends.”
The idea centers aroung a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he is drafted into the NBA. “Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets and learns from the sisterhood of players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.” Gee – where have we heard that story before?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hillshave started filming their third season, and all kinds of news and sources are leaking out of the bejeweled franchise. We’ll start with the officially sanctioned happy positive sunshine news, which is that Kyle Richards is opening up a clothing store in Beverly Hills. In a statement that could only have been crafted by a PR person, Kyle tells US Magazine that “As someone who values great fashion, I know how difficult it is to find the newest looks and hottest accessories you want all under one roof.”
So, Kyle began her store as a humanitarian effort. What she should have opened was a hair salon, since that’s what she’s known for. But instead, she decided to sink her cash into another overpriced boutique. Other friends apparently think Kyle is also foolish, but in other ways. They’ve dialed up their old buddies at Radar Online and told them how Kyle is acting like a diva. I’m personally not surprised, but her “real friends” are shocked at the new, famous Kyle.
Alright, RuPaul’s Drag Race Fans (me included) this one’s for you and I’m serving up some gossip realness. Sharon Needles, our beloved freaky queen broke Drag Race tradition and was the first non-fishy lady crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar. Now the lady of the night speaks out about working with RuPaul and beating arch nemesis Phi Phi O’Hara!
Also, can we please talk about why Phi Phi made it to the final three anyway? Ugh. First of all the always humble Sharon confesses – she wasn’t at all surprised by her win! “I wasn’t really surprised at all. Being a drag queen is all about pulling out the stops and freaking them out,” she tells Entertainment Weekly.
“In all honesty, though, Chad Michaels and I were expecting a tie between me and her and that we would crack that crown in half, which would have been almost more of a pleasure and it would make more sense than to just have one of us beat Phi Phi,” Sharon snarks. Adding, “We figured possibly that RuPaul would keep the crown for herself.”

When Teen Moms come to mind, usually there are a few (okay, one or two) that give us faith in the humanity of our nation’s youth, while the others are just famewhore train wrecks. This blog post is about Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra and Jenelle Evans. I’ll let you figure out who falls into which category…
While both Farrah Abraham and Maci Bookout have expressed their desire to remain in the public eye with spinoffs, Catelynn and Tyler remain relatively under the radar. Viewers have championed the pair who made the undoubtedly difficult choice to place their daughter up for adoption (because that never seems to happen on the MTV hit) while overcoming major family strife to make a better life together.
Although they originally married on October 23, 2011, the couple is planning to exchange vows again later this month in an intimate Santa Barbara ceremony – and I’m sure the photos will be exquisite! However, Reality Tea has acquired Briana and Ryan’s actual Las Vegas wedding photo!
The couple initially said “I do!” at the Vegas Weddings Walk Up Window. So it wasn’t a drive-thru but a walk-up chapel! Vegas Weddings offers a wide-variety of wedding packages at their lavish chapel but opting for something low-key, Briana and Ryan chose the walk up window.
According to a witness, the couple “didn’t want anything fancy, just to have a very simple ceremony.” And upon receiving their marriage license they walked across the street and tied the knot! A photo of Ryan and Briana after getting married at Vegas Wedding’s Walk Up Chapel is below!

Is anything ever what it seems in Kardashialand? Who’s marrying whom? Which sister is knocked up? Which sister is divorcing? Which sister is forced to forgo college plans so she can bank roll her mother? Where did Rob go? Do they just bring him out of the basement when they need him? It’s a hurricane of uncertainty with the Kardashian Krew.
In recent weeks, all eyes have been on Klamar and the state of their union. The couple has decided not to continue with reality show, and in an effort to lay low (Kardashian style, of course) Khloe Kardashian was on the cover of People magazine discussing the pair’s marriage. Baby steps. The most quotable from that interview was Khloe relaying, “I like to think divorce is not an option.” Tabloids and blogs everywhere (cough, cough) are now jumping to dissect the phrase “I like to think” in her statement.
Good lord – is there no end to Bethenny Frankel‘s empire? Guess not! The mogul – and I mean mogul – should probably get her own version of The Apprentice already, which isn’t a bad idea actually. Adding to her list of products, the Bethenny Ever After star just released her first novel, Skinnydipping – which is more of a memoir with the names changed to protect the innocent.
To promote her newest book endeavor, Bethenny has been making the media rounds talking marriage, reality TV, and writing!
“I’ve been on reality television for 8 years,” Bethenny said on TODAY of taking a break to write ‘fiction’. “I’ve been on a lot of my reality — my first three books were prescriptive in how to lose weight and how to get the most out of life. ‘Skinnydipping’ is just fun, refreshing…. It’s just a palate cleanser.”
Bethenny credits her fans for keeping her grounded and says that’s what led her to pursue the talk show route. “I have incredible fans,” she explained. “I have a great relationship with them, whether it’s on Twitter, emails or letters, I know exactly who they are. We are in a relationship. It’s why I wanted to do a talk show. It’s for them, so we can have a conversation, rather than just watch me living my life on television.”
Last night’s Survivor was clearly ladies’ night, as Tarzan is the only man left.
We learn that Troyzan whispered “do it” to Kat as he was leaving. Kat is befuddled…does he think she’s going to go against her alliance? Well, someone’s going to have to do it! Alicia thinks that Christina’s ramblings during tribal council only show how wishy washy and weak she is. Alicia thinks Christina needs to stick around a while, but she is starting to feel threatened by the amount of power Sabrina seems to have garnered. Alicia sees herself as a puppet master, poisoning the other women against Sabrina.
