Reality Tea

sonja morgan

I don’t know who is writing Sonja Morgan’s Bravo blogs, but they need to cool it on the “vitamins” mixed with Red Bull (allegedly) and limit their word count to – oh, I don’t know – under 10,000. In this week’s War and Peace length narrative, Sonja bemoans the Real Housewives of New York ladies’ lack of support regarding her Latino Show Magazine party, an event which launched one single dress…and a thousand comments. But before we go there, let’s start at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start! (Thank you, Julie Andrews.)

Sonja begins by questioning the emerging friendships on this season’s RHONY. “I must say that the relationships we saw in this episode seemed very forced! I feel like the girls are trying out some new friendships this season, and I don’t know that they are going to work out,” she snarks. “Just look at Ramona [Singer] and Luann [de Lesseps]! They tried to establish a friendship this year, and it completely blew up tonight (and at the fabulous Pettrosian of all places). But I must say that Ramona and Dorinda [Medley’s] new friendship does seem to be genuine.” Although Sonja supports Dorinda’s encouragement of Ramona getting back into the dating scene, she believes Mario does really want a second chance. “I am also not surprised that Mario wants to get back together with Ramona. Who wouldn’t want to stay with Ramona? She’s a fox, fun, and keeps you on your toes (even if an apology comes soon thereafter)! Ramona is going to have a rough road ahead deciding where she would like her relationship with Mario to go,” she comments. Because Sonja needs to make Ramona’s divorce situation all about HERSELF, she continues by admitting, ” I do wish that Ramona felt comfortable sharing these moments with me, but I need to respect her decisions during this difficult time. Like Bethenny [Frankel] says, sometimes its easier to open up to someone you hardly know. As is the case when Bethenny herself lets her hair down, and the tears flow with Carole [Radziwill], who doesn’t even have children.”

Stephen Daldry’s recent Tony nomination

Luann de Lesseps doesn’t hold back in her latest Bravo blog. This week the Real Housewives of New York star lays it all out there, including her real feelings about Ramona Singer’s future (or lack thereof) with Mario, Carole Radziwill’s cold behavior toward Bethenny Frankel during her (3rd? 5th? 100th?) crying scene, and why Ramona cannot be trusted. She begins by commenting on Ramona’s belief that Mario may want to mend their marriage. “While I’m glad Mario and Avery are now on good terms, I’m skeptical of Mario’s intentions and hope that Ramona waits to see how this plays out before jumping back in. Time will tell,” warns the Countess.

Luann’s thoughts on Carole winning election to her building board are skeptical, but mainly supportive. She comments, “Carole as a politician…why not? She has to start somewhere (I guess), and her election to her building’s board could be the beginning of a new career? I was happy that she was chosen, and I liked her ‘strategy team,’ although it was a bit of overkill, don’t you think?” Yes, those homemade posters by Heather Thomson’s children were surely not Class-With-the-Countess-Approved! As for Carole not being a “hugger” when, in Luann’s opinion, Bethenny needed a hug most, she says that when Bethenny “went décor shopping with Carole at CB2 (fabulous place) and broke down sobbing in the middle of the store, it made me realize that she is so consumed with fear that she can’t see her future through her tears. I wonder why Carole couldn’t find it within her to give Bethenny a hug…even if she isn’t ‘a hugger.'” She adds that Bethenny “needs to take care of herself. When Mommy’s happy, everyone is happy,” and that “Bethenny has to begin looking ahead rather than back and enjoy the time she has with her friends and family.”

2008 Summer TCA Tour - Day 13

Judging from that photo above (come on! that synthetic wig is EVERYTHING), this week’s Throwback Thursday victim has come a long way, baby!  Kim Zolciak has only been on our radars for a few years now, but she has had already had quite the style metamorphosis since hitting our reality TV screens on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008.   Kim has definitely upped her hair, makeup and wardrobe game over the years! 

Take a look at the Kim Zolciak photos in our gallery and check out some of her early looks.

Kyle Richards & Lisa Vanderpump at the USA Upfront Awards

Lisa Vanderpump is currently filming Vanderpump Rules – with one big change: no more Stassi Schroeder. But what everyone is really curious about is: what is going on with Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!? Most specifically – what is going on with Kim Richards!

Lisa, along with Kyle Richards, Eileen Davidson, and Lisa Rinna have reportedly been asked to return (and confirmed) to RHOBH, with Kim and Brandi residing on the chopping block, and Yolanda Foster dealing with her health before making a final decision. 

Reflecting on Kim and her battle with addiction, which played out throughout the season, Lisa shares, “It was hard to watch. I very much didn’t want to get involved because I think there were people that were closer to her than I was. But I think everybody knew that something was amiss. She just kept saying, ‘No, I’ve got this.'”

Kim Richards

In response to an earlier report that claimed Kim Richards was drunk and/or high, belligerent, and verbally abusive at Thayer and Brooke‘s wedding in Mexico over the weekend, a “family insider” has come forward to downplay the report and make excuses for Kim’s behavior.

This is par for the course for this family full of deflectors and enablers, but what really disgusts me is, the insider threw Kim‘s mentally ill son Chad under a bus in the process.

The “family insider” confirmed that a sober coach accompanied Kim to Mexico, however, the sober coach pretended to be Kim’s Pilates instructor. The insider admitted that the sober coach quit and left the country. But, you know, it wasn’t Kim’s fault. The coach was just being dramatic.

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

After yet another uncomfortable exchange with Bethenny Frankel on this week’s Real Housewives of New York, Heather Thomson is weary. And wary. And in need of a Bethenny “handbook” on how to navigate future conversations about, well, anything! In her Bravo blog, Heather admits she was happy to see Bethenny at Carole Radziwill’s election party, but she found Bethenny’s reaction to their discussion about custody a bit shocking, considering Bethenny talks about it All.Of.The.Time. “Our talk about her custody of Bryn was a simple conversation to bring clarity to a topic she often discusses,” says Heather. “I just didn’t realize that only Bethenny can address it. I feel like there are a lot of unwritten rules with her. What you can ask, what you can say, how you can feel…it’s a little tough to navigate.” 

“Even silly small talk about a tattoo idea is difficult,” Heather continues. “I’ve been dying to cover an old one and had just seen Maleficent, which was so well done, and I was inspired! But Bethenny, however, is not. Maybe a handbook would be helpful?!” Also, Heather’s joy over Carole winning board election is equal to her joy over Sonja Morgan actually conjuring some semblance of a product line (or, let’s face it, a single product) at her Latino Show Magazine party. Offering that Sonja’s cover and editorial spread were “beautiful,” Heather adds, “Sonja is easy in front of a lens. She photographs beautifully, and the pictures were gorgeous–including the double truck (two-page ad spread) announcing the launch of her brand. I remain supportive of Sonja and was excited to meet her team for the first time and learn more.”

Bruce Jenner wears sunglasses to appear on Extra

Bruce Jenner is petitioning a judge to throw out a wrongful death suit filed by the adult step-children of the victim of the fatal car accident he was involved in this February. 

While it’s not entirely clear what ultimately caused the fatal car accident, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s SUV rear-ended a Lexus sedan driven by 69-year-old Kimberly Howe. Ms. Howe died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained from the accident, which Bruce described as a “devastating tragedy.” Five others were also injured, although Bruce was unharmed.
