Reality Tea

Dorinda-Medley-RHONY-Twitter-001

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the newest addition to the Real Housewives of New York this season! Dorinda Medley’s blogs are about as spot-on and hilarious as they come each week, so let’s dive in to her latest reflections on Bethenny Frankel’s jittery behavior, Sonja Morgan’s downward spiral, and Ramona Singer’s ability to clear a room of unwanted Kristen Taekmans in 3…2…1… 

“This episode was all about trying to connect and being supportive of each other,” begins Dorinda, “I’M SURE YOU HAVE NOTICED, ahem…the way we communicate sometimes does not support this theory.” Excited that Bethenny coordinated an event for the group, albeit a cupcake event, Dorinda says, “it shows she really is making an effort with us—she likes us. It’s sort of a grownup playdate, with cake batter and frosting. It also proved to be an opportunity to bring out a competitive side from the girls.” With each woman taking her particular brand of neuroses out on the innocent cupcakes before her, Dorinda reflects how “Ramona was contemplative and methodical, Sonja was light-hearted but with flair, and Bethenny was all business (put frosting on cake, put in box, move onto next cake…). I was thinking about it…Which color? Which pattern? Does it make me look taller? (That’s really all I ask myself every morning.)”

Sonja Morgan - RHONY season 7 premiere party

Who wins the award for the shadiest ex? Why Sonja Morgan does! Sonja has been in the midst of finalizing her bankruptcy-exit plan, which includes battling a lawsuit from her former hubby, who also owes her millions. 

Sonja sold a French home, and had plans to turn over the value of her Colorado home to creditors when J.A. Morgan attempted to put a stop to that with a $6.2 million-dollar lawsuit claiming he deserved some of that money. Sonja fired back reminding him of that outstanding $3 million he never paid her to satisfy their divorce decree. Then she accused him of trying to invent laws after-the-fact. Luckily for Sonja the judge agreed with her and dismissed the lawsuit.

Luann de Lesseps attends the amfAR gala in blue

Luann de Lesseps has no patience for uncool behavior and Ramona Singer epitomized that on this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York! Additionally, an addiction counselor The Countess is not, so she’d like everyone to let Sonja Morgan work out her issues on her own, thankyouverymuch! 

Luann is disappointed Ramona chose to lash-out at Kristen Taekman and resorted to calling her dumb, something Luann assures us Kristen is not! “It was only a matter of time before Ramona reared her Ramotional head, and I was surprised at her aggressiveness with Kristen,” Luann recounts. “Kristen has a right to express herself wherever and whenever she wants. As for Ramona calling Kristen dumb…well, that’s just dumb! Kristen is very smart, and while she might be having a little difficulty getting on with some of the girls, her problem is with timing, not intelligence.”

RHONY's Sonja Morgan

Sonja Morgan is debt-free. Well, kinda. The Real Housewives Of New York star has been battling a $7 million dollar bankruptcy judgement for the last few years after a failed film production deal pushed her off a financial cliff.  

Struggling to get-by on diminished assets without losing her NYC townhouse, Sonja has finally been given the clear from a judge to repay her creditors and enter into a bankruptcy-exit plan. Sonja obtained the millions by selling a St. Tropez chateau she won in her divorce proceedings, but the process was temporarily hindered when Sonja’s ex-husband filed a $6.2 million-dollar lawsuit against her claiming he was owed proceeds from the French sale because he had paid upkeep on the home, plus a portion of the Colo. home Sonja was attempting to liquidate.

However Sonja gleefully reveals, “It’s over now. It’s come to an end.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 5

Bravo heard the fans loud and clear, it seems.  Brandi Glanville is no longer part of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, according to new reports out today. 

Some fans of the franchise have been very vocal since last season’s trainwreck that they were done with Brandi’s raunchy, rude and tacky behavior on the show.   E! is reporting that producers decided to not invite her back for another season.

Shahs of Sunset season 4

Are you ready for more leveraged-to-the-hilt gold gilded drama? Shahs of Sunset has already been renewed for a fifth season. 

It’s not altogether too surprising considering the vitriolic reunion left off with a “To Be Continued…” as GG Gharachedaghi beseeched Mike Shouhed to give his friendship to the group another chance and invited him out for a drink with the rest of the cast. Mike came under fire for his cheating ways this season, despite his marriage to Jessica Parido

The Hollywood Reporter learned that the Ryan Seacrest produced Shahs’ crazy two-part reunion gave Bravo its best Monday prime-time ratings since February 2014. 1.6 million viewers tuned in to Part 1 of the Reza-Is-An-A-Hole-A-Thon, which was followed by Real Housewives Of Orange County. I wonder if the fan-despised Asifa Mirza will be returning?

Big Brother 17

The countdown is on, my fellow Big Brother fans! Big Brother 17‘s two-night premiere airs Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday, June 25. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Houseguests and announced the twist that will, no doubt, annoy my face off sooner rather than later. HAHA. I have such a love/hate relationship with Big Brother.

The twist, BB Takeover, will feature a surprise guest each week who will appear on the show to announce a new twist. Yes, a new twist every single week, which is expected to “shake up life inside the house on a weekly basis.”

“This is going to be the biggest Big Brother ever!” promised EP Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because Big Brother is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.” Meet the houseguests below.
