Reality Tea

Ashlee Holmes

Let’s give props where they’re due –  Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes has come a long way from being the rebellious teen we saw during the early days of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Ashlee is now a certified makeup artist, a new mom, and an engaged woman. Not only that, but she recently announced she has two new ventures in the works: a bridal business and a beauty blog. Considering Ashlee is engaged, she is probably doing a lot of wedding research, so it makes sense to think she is in the know when it comes to all things bride.

Don't Be Tardy recap

This week’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy is ripe with all kinds of change in the air. Kim Zolciak Biermann and Kroy Biermann are anxiously waiting to hear where Kroy will end up playing and the whole family is a tad on edge with the unknown. The only solution seems to be to throw money at the problem, which sounds about right.

Despite the stress going on around her, Tracey is cool as a cucumber, thanks to a new online relationship with a gal named Lexi. She met her on Instagram and apparently, knows almost nothing about her, even though they have been talking for a month and a half. Lexi lives in New York and Tracey has yet to join the year 2016 FaceTime her. Brielle Biermann expertly points out that Tracey is “SO old” and decides to move this relationship along with a FaceTime call. One fun fact Tracey forgot to ask in her relationship is how old Lexi is (25) and both Brielle and Tracey are shocked by this news but recover quickly enough to invite Lexi to Atlanta to see this sh*t show first hand spend some much needed time together.

Survivor

Coming on the heels of last week’s tremendously awesome double-episode that ended in a emotional rock draw, it would be asking a lot of Survivor to give us an episode with the same level of intensity the very next week. Well, it sure did its damnedest. This season continues to bring the heat, as every single one of the remaining players has clearly come to play. Now, nobody said come to play “good,” as mistakes and poor strategic game-play has driven much of the drama these past few episodes. But it was once again riveting. Survivor shows no signs of stopping as it barrels its way towards the finale in a couple weeks.

Last night’s episode was the famed “loved ones” episode, which is a milestone for most contestants playing the game to make it to this point. Let’s dive in, trying not to get stuck in the sand. The recap is forthcoming, following your normal “turn back, this is your last spoiler warning” warning.

Lisa Vanderpump

Real Housewives cast members Lisa Vanderpump and Stephanie Hollman have the funds to make property purchases whenever they want – well, at least for the most part, and weirdly enough the reality TV stars who live in Beverly Hills and Dallas, respectively, both just made real estate moves in Los Angeles.

No, it doesn’t seem like Stephanie is jumping ship from Real Housewives of Dallas to join one of the California casts. And I doubt Lisa will abandon Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but they both have some property news in the L.A. area.

Shay and Scheana Intervention

I could not help wondering where Scheana Marie Shay’s husband Mike Shay has been during first few episodes of the current Vanderpump Rules season (other than a 10 second blip at the apartment warming party). Their marriage issues and Mike’s struggle with sobriety took center stage last year, so the absence of their relationship from this season (so far) was very conspicuous. Well maybe that was some foreshadowing because Scheana just filed for divorce from Shay.

Damn. I feel naive saying this, but I was actually pretty surprised by this news. Maybe I’m the only one, but you know what they say, “hindsight is 20/20” and it’s very easy to look for “evidence” pointing to a split when it’s after the fact. But then again, Shay did supposedly go missing and take Scheana’s money recently- which Shay later denied in an emphatic Instagram post. So who knows what to believe, but the soon-to-be exes did confirm the divorce news.

Don't talk about Mama Joyce!

This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta only just started, but there is no shortage of drama. Every single woman in the cast is bringing their A-game. They all have a lot going on own their own and with each other – which means that they all have a lot of opinions about everyone’s business. So of course Sheree Whitfield has thoughts about Kandi Burruss’s baby daddy drama and Porsha Williams can’t help reacting to Sheree’s fight with Kenya Moore.

I love how much this cast is weaved into each other’s lives – this show makes sense instead of random scenes of people who have nothing to do with each other. Everyone on Real Housewives of Atlanta is looking out for themselves and spilling the tea about everyone else and I am absolutely living for it.

Kandi Burruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers are seeing a lot of Kandi Burruss‘s personal drama this season. Poor Kandi – her mom and her husband are finally getting along and now she has baby daddy drama to deal with. A lot of the time, it seems like reality TV plot lines are contrived and manipulated, but you can tell Kandi is genuinely torn up about her daughter’s biological father Block Spencer coming back on the scene.

I find it shady as hell that this man who is supposedly successful in the music industry wants to be in his daughter’s life all of a sudden – in front of reality TV cameras. He couldn’t try to contact her in-between seasons? It seems extremely opportunistic and I can’t help feeling sad for Kandi’s daughter Riley Burruss. And on top of that the always outspoken Mama Joyce has had no issue sharing her opinions with Kandi, so it’s clearly going to be a drama-filled season for Kandi.
