Reality Tea

Lisa Rinna

Lisa Rinna is rarely at a loss for words. Last night, we learned that if we’re ever in a room with her when it happens, DUCK. Or, if you’re Kyle Richards, run for cover as dramatically as possible. Cape flying in the wind and all.

Lisa took to her blog to share her opinion on the events that led her to throw a glass (not to mention lunge at Kim Richards‘ throat) on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“Have you ever put a bunch of ingredients in the blender, hit power on only to realize that you forgot to put the lid on, so it sprays everywhere?” asked Lisa. “This is exactly how my brain feels after this episode. There has been so much going on and so much building up that finally everything has just exploded into a million pieces.” And the pieces somehow landed in Kim‘s pants.

Kylie Jenner for Fault Magazine

Kylie Jenner is the youngest member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian klan and has lived most of her life in both the spotlight and in the shadow of her elder siblings’ drama. But now Kylie finally has some drama of her own – oh goody – which means the Pimpmomager is finally putting her on magazine covers and paying attention. 

Posing for Fault Magazine, Kylie opened her newly plumped lips to discuss fame, relationships, criticism, and playing the part of a Kardashian for the fans. 

“Having a reality TV show, everyone feels like they know you, but that’s only 10% of my life,” insists the 17-year-old Kylie. “There’s a whole other side of me that people don’t see.”

Reza Farahan at the Huffington Post

The Shahs of Sunset cast members are making the press rounds this week.  Reza Farahan stopped by The Commission Show on PNC Radio to dish on the new season and more.  He slams NeNe Leakes and throws shade at Andy Cohen “since he’s not my boss anymore.” 

On landing the show and using the platform for good.  They want to know if he holds back certain things or if the show is the “real him”.    “I didn’t think anything of it, I didn’t know if it would go anywhere or not.”   He says that even if he would only have the platform for two minutes, he wanted to address homophobia in the Middle Eastern culture because he had friends that committed suicide when he was growing up. “I thought if I could impact someone’s life, that would be great.”

Kim Richards is on the attack

Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills things officially went to the dark side. Kim Richards lost her marbles in a cesspool of deflection, hysterics, and venomous rage. Don’t fear the reaper, or the coming of wrinkles, fear the KimKillah – who will bring the wrinkles and the emotional eating out in force! 

Can I snark at the total break from reality I just witnessed? Eh – I’m going to, so don’t you worry your pretty little heads – or you may need Botox! 

As soon as the ladies check into to their Amsterdam hotel they are met by the reassuring presence of Lisa Vanderpump and Eileen Davidson, walking into the unknown pit of Kingsleys. Lisa Rinna calls them “a lifeboat.” Sadly, they will prove to be as effective as the Titanic lifeboats. 

Immediately Lipsa fills them in on the time Kim ruined her experience riding on the YoDa Aeronautic Private JetPlex and she was put off the two bites of artisinal crullers she was about to indulge in – only because she heard they were artfully glazed with a natural form of botox made from a very rare fish found only in the Nile River, deep in the Heart Of Darkness. “You know,” purred Yolanda Foster, “It’s the only way I ever consume sugar.”

Claudia Jordan

The drama on Real Housewives of Atlanta revolved around Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore this week, but Claudia Jordan shared her thoughts on the “mudslinging” in her blog. Claudia, who comes across as awfully self-righteous considering the amount of mud she slung in Puerto Rico, wants everyone to set rules and play fair.

When asked about the Mr. Chocolate rumor, Claudia said, “I really don’t know Phaedra that much to comment on her personal life, but from the little bit I am privy to, I was surprised to hear about an alleged affair considering the extreme criticism that Kenya got.”

“At the end of the day, only two people know what really did or did not happen, and I would love for this group to reserve judgment on everyone until there is confirmation,” continued Claudia.But I think a precedent had been set a long time ago, so that has opened the door to where we are now. I think it’s easy to believe something negative about someone in the group, because in the past it’s been shown that it takes very little actual evidence or proof for some to jump on that bandwagon.”

basketball-wives-la-season-three

Thank goodness for sources with the inside scoop! Reality Tea is fortunate to have one when it comes to Basketball Wives: LA, and our contact has been spot on with all of the assessments of the upcoming season. I am excited to see how it all plays out, especially in light of the anticipated Miami crossover!

Our insider has been sharing tidbits with us about the show for a while now. Filming of the new season is drawing to a close, and our behind the scenes informant shares that we need to expect the unexpected. Not everyone from Miami about whom we’d previously speculated actually made the jump to BBWLA, and the fan favorites are at odds with their co-stars. That’s the kind of drama I like!

southern charm kathryn trav

Y’all. This girl can’t even. CAN’T EVEN! To say I’m over-the-moon about this would be the biggest understatement in the history of my love affair with reality television. To be completely honest, I think I’d be obsessed with Southern Charm even if it didn’t take place in my personal playground. Granted, by personal playground, I mean the place where the cable company mails my bills (semantics)…the only revelry I have in Charleston these days revolves around 50+ hour work weeks, wine, bagel bites and the occasional delicious beer at, well, Revelry. However, that’s about to change because Thomas Ravenel and crew are returning to Bravo on Monday, March 16th! {Squeals with delight!}

I don’t like to brag, but a few weeks ago I chatted with Shep Rose at Rue de Jean about the upcoming season. Okay, okay…so in his version of the story, I approached him like a Southern Charm fanatic (not to be confused with a groupie looking for a hook-up, although I’m not sure which is worse), asked questions he politely skirted, and forced him to pose for a picture, but still! I can confirm that they are all, in fact, good friends outside of the show, and he was a great sport about the entire debacle. Having learned my lesson, when I spotted Cameran Eubanks the other day at the grocery store, I gave her some space…even when she pulled her buggy behind me in line. See, I can exercise restraint! She was probably grateful for it, given that I’ve fan-girled her in the past–but that was for the job, dear readers. 🙂 That said, the recently released super-trailer for the upcoming season is epic!

Dance Moms girls

Well, the ALDC had a good run in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t good enough for Abby Lee Miller (what is ever good enough for her?). On last night’s Dance Moms, the team, the catty moms and the dance teacher from hell returned to Pennsylvania to continue their unique brand of drama. Holly is still fired up about Abby’s treatment of Nia in regard to Aubry O’Day and the Matty B video, and she’s upset with her fellow mothers for supporting Abby even when she was being completely unreasonable. Jill is on edge as well for being the only mom on Team Abby. Y’all know I’m not counting Melissa on that team as that’s just who she is. Back at the ALDC studio, the moms are tense as MacKenzie shares that she’ll be singing live in New York City. At least someone’s children are benefiting from Abby’s stellar management skills!

At pyramid, Abby berates her team for not being ready for L.A. She only coaches winners. Maddie is exempt from criticism because she wasn’t in the fray of insanity as she was busy guest starring on Disney’s Austin and Ally. Jill interrupts to remind Abby of her loyalty and hopes that everyone (read: Kendall) will now be in Abby’s good graces to reap the rewards in a quest for stardom. At first, I think Abby is going along with Jill’s flattery, but she quickly retorts that Maddie is the breakout because of Maddie’s talent (I’ll give Abby that for sure!), not because of Abby’s management. It must be hard for her not to take credit. Brynn is missing because her brother has serious diabetes and needs to be monitored. As Kira relays this news, Abby barks that they aren’t here to rip on Brynn. Um, Kira was simply stating that some things take precedent over dance, right? Kira can be a pot stirrer, but I don’t think that was her intention in this instance.
