Reality Tea

Cynthia Bailey

The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicked off the premiere this week by diving right into the video of Peter Thomas that surfaced (a little too coincidentally) right as filming started for the new season.  Cynthia Bailey shares in her blog this week that the situation has been painful to deal with. 

Cynthia explained, “It was extremely difficult dealing with the video of Peter. No woman (or man for that matter) expects (or hopes) to see her or his spouse appear to be cheating or having an indiscretion in a video. Especially one that has gone viral! How would one prepare for this? I was confused, shocked, hurt, and humiliated at the same time. Then I just became pissed at Peter for his recklessness, inconsideration, and carelessness. Of course I let Peter have it. I was furious! Peter and I are in the public eye, so in addition to dealing with this personally, I had to deal with it publicly as well. I had to dig deep, and ask myself a lot of heavy questions about my relationship and whether or not it would survive.”  I’m not sure I’d call the reality blogs “going viral” but whatever…

2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - Pink Carpet

Yolanda Foster may be filming reality shows and jetting to New York City to cheer on her daughter Gigi Hadid, but don’t misunderstand – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is still deep in her battle with Chronic Lyme Disease

While Yolanda seemed to be doing well as she attended the Victoria’s Secret show in NYC, she shared that she’s still struggling every day.  “I’m getting better.  I’m probably about 60 percent but still spending most of my days in bed and resting.  And trying to find the magic drink.”

Real Housewives of Potomac

Yesterday, we were surprised (and hugely excited) to learn that both the Real Housewives of Potomac and the Real Housewives of Dallas will be added to Bravo’s lineup in 2016. The first, coming to us from Potomac, Maryland, kicks off Sunday, January 17th.

Bravo released, “Just up the river from our nation’s capital lies a hidden gem – Potomac, Maryland. Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools, and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation only. Sprinkled throughout this community are a handful of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide a life of privilege for their children.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac follows the lives of Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Ashley Darby, and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. “In a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage, how far will these ladies go to secure their spot at the top of this prestigious circle?” teased Bravo. Look below to see the cast photos/bios and watch the sneak peek trailer.

Big Ang and Neil Couples Therapy

Last week on Couples Therapy, we watched as Joe returned to the house, and did his best to explain what happened, hoping that everyone would give him the benefit of the doubt that he is not a woman beater. Woman beater or not though, Joe and Kaylin’s problems were far from over. We were also shocked to watch as Carmen took over the “shut the hell up already award,” but that was all about to change.

This week, Dr. Jenn’s goal was to determine who wore the pants in the relationship, and guess what? And though we already know who does in each relationship, it was time for the couples to exchange the power. Needless to say, that did not go over well for some, but for others, it was a nice surprise! Get all the details after the jump.

Scheana Marie poses with Katie Maloney's engagement ring

In SUR years, Katie Maloney is considered nearly retirement age, which makes her somewhat of an authority on the new blood joining this season’s cast of Vanderpump Rules! After all, she’s been through the Stassi Schroeder wringer years, she’s seen Vail Bloom blow in-n-out so fast, we almost got whiplash. As for this season’s newbies, Katie is loving Faith Stowers so far, but the same can’t be said of castmate Lala Kent.  

Katie shares, “Being a veteran at SUR, now-6 years and counting, I have met and trained most of the new servers. My first impression of Faith was that she was very laid back and personable. She wasn’t shy and was very candid in our conversation from the start. I knew I would get along with her.” Although Faith has limited serving experience, Katie says she doesn’t mind offering some extra support to help Faith “keep her job.”

Kim Zolciak Wedding

When I want to announce how much I love and adore my husband I always do so by posting a photo dry-humping him while wearing a string bikini. Doesn’t everyone? Or just me and Kim Zolciak?

After 4 years of wedded bliss and more babies than I care to count, Kim and Kroy Biermann are celebrating their anniversary. And since Kim is also selling $175 tickers to her Ask, Believe, And Receive speaking tour, she’s taking to instagram to praise the heavens for sending her Kroy, whom she so fervently asked Big Poppa for using her Ask, Believe, and Receive mentality. 

Kim and Kroy are celebrating this momentous anniversary occasion with a vacation in Mexico.

This is the LAST Brooks/Vicki/Cancer post today.  Pinky Swear.   Vicki Gunvalson sat down with Extra’s Mario Lopez to share her side of the story now that Brooks Ayers has confessed that he doctored up fake chemo bills and City of Hope denied his being a patient of theirs.  The Real Housewives of Orange County star confesses that she hates Brooks and she still swears she was at City of Hope with him and had no idea he was being dishonest. 

Vicki starts off,  “I’m completely shocked. I’ve seen the bills, I went to City Of Hope. He was there all morning so how do you think anything other than ‘he’s getting chemo’, you go to City Of Hope because you have cancer, not because you have nothing else to do during the day.”  
 

baby zino

So, this may be one of those situations where both congratulations and condolences are in order, as another reality television baby entered the world while his parents battled back and forth about their relationship status…just as it was in the olden days. 😉

Last night, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Althea “Thi-Thi” Heart went into labor with her son, the namesake of boyfriend (ex-boyfriend?) Benzino. Baby Zino debuted this soon after, but not before ‘Zino, Sr. and Thi-Thi could engage in the requisite amount of drama and hospital selfies, all of which played out over social media. We can always count on you, No Neck, Benzino!
