It’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewedNeNe Leakes' Never Make The Same MIstake Twice. And for cocktails we did the great Real Housewives of Atlanta Moscato-off. In case you weren't aware Kim Zoliciak and Cynthia Bailey both offer their own versions of the wine, and NeNe allegedly has (had?) one.
This month we're branching out and offering another network the opportunity to hawk some swag and reviewing Evelyn Lozada's Inner Circle: The Wives Association. And because surprisingly – very surprisingly given their propensity for drunken antics – none of the ladies of Basketball Wives offers a cocktail, we're reviewing Melissa Gorga's Voli Lyte Vodka. The ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey are inundated with bottled beverages it seems.
We didn't report on this sooner, because well, TheDirty makes us feel dirty. Ewww… However, the other day the website famous for outing people's dirty laundry – whether true or not – reported that Real Housewives of Miami star and supermodelJoanna Krupa was a former high-priced escort before her modeling career took off.
The post claimed to have proof that Joanna was a high class prostitute of the Elliot Spitzer variety who would bang zee menfolk for a pricey $10,000 a romp. Then of course Maxim Magazine discovered her existence and poof – no more prostitution whore!
I'll be the first to admit that I finally took a stand on my feelings for Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice after watching that horrid first installment of the reunion. Now I may be eating my words…just a bit. A very little bit. I still don't feel sorry for her, and I think I may keel over if I ever hear her utter the words "I was wrong" or "I lied." However, now I don't feel badly for any of them. They are all a bunch of fame whores as evidenced by the new Us Weekly cover story. You have to love that they're all wearing red. I guess they got Tre's devil memo!
You have to love the hypocrisy that comes with being a New Jersey housewife. One minute Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile are calling out Teresa for hawking her story on magazine cover after magazine cover (after magazine cover!), the next minute they are gracing the pages of Us Weekly (high brow…no In Touch for these gals!) and bashing their former friend. Eye roll.
In a five page spread, the women spill all the details of their fallout with Tre. Now, I don't doubt for one second that Teresa is a textbook narcissist, but how is moaning about her in a national publication going to change that? Are these ladies actually expecting her to have some sort of epiphany and change her ways? Doesn't anyone know how to take the high road anymore? Geez. Build a bridge, people!
The Kardashians are environmentally friendly, ya'll. They recycle clothes! And not even just last season's clothes, but we're talking dresses from four years ago! Shahs of Sunset star GG would be mortified, but we applaud them.
Last week Kourtney Kardashian was spotted filming in Miami, sporting this green and blue Diane Von Furstenberg dress as she boarded a boat with Scott Disick. She discovered that her sister Kim had worn the same dress back in 2008 on the red carpet for a movie premiere.
Kourtney shared on her blog, "I had no clue Kim had worn this Diane Von Furstenberg dress before! I know this looked familiar." She gave her sister props for the way she wore it first, "I love how Kim belted her dress. It’s fun to see how we both take the same dress and make it look SO different!"
Take our poll below! Who wore it best: Kim or Kourt?
Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj was "miraculously" caught on tape screaming at Mariah Carey during an American Idol audition, and the tape "somehow" ended up in TMZ's possession. Shocker.
On the video, Nicki screamed, “I told them, I’m not f***ing putting up with her f***ing highness over there.” Apparently, Nicki is tired of Mariah's self-involved attitude. TMZ's sources have said, "She [Mariah] keeps bringing up how many records she's sold, name dropping people she's worked with, how many tours she's done, and how many Grammys or awards she's won. Nicki is tired of it."
Also, Nicki has maintained… Mariah isn't innocent. Insiders have backed up Nicki's claim. Reportedly, Nicki walked away from the audition just before the outburst because Mariah was constantly talking down to her. As soon as Nicki returned, Mariah allegedly called her a bitch… cue the "secret" video camera… Nicki lost her temper.
"It was intense,"Ryan Seacrest said. Early reports even claimed Nicki made a death threat against Mariah. Putting that rumor to rest, Nigel Lythgoeinsisted, "The statement [that Nicki made a death threat] is absolute rubbish. It's absolutely not true in any way, shape, or form."
Kate Gosselin has been desperate for fame and attention ever since her reality show Kate Plus 8 was canceled. Well, now she's got it!
Recently Kate has been the subject of an unsavory tell-all book accusing Kate of child abuse among other damning things. Amazon was forced to pull the book after lawyers for Kate insists it is filled with invalidated, untrue information – and information which has been obtained from illegal means.
Author Robert Hoffman disputes those claims, insisting the material for Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World was procured legally and with thorough investigation. Robert claims he interviewed dozens of people connected with Kate and found her computer hard drive in the trash.
Well now sources are alleging that Robert, who happens to be friends with Jon Gosselin, got all his information from one source – and once source only: Jon!
