Reality Tea

Kim Richards Sits-Down With Dr. Phil To Talk Alcoholism & Arrest

Dr. Phil sat down with Kim Richards to discuss her long history with drug and alcohol abuse, her defensive, deflective behaviors, her relationship with Kyle Richards, and whether or not Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is a healthy environment for her. True to form, Kim blamed everyone else for her arrest and issues – the Beverly Hills hotel for calling the cops, twitter, RHOBH viewers, her co-stars, blogs. 

First of all, Kim sounds … off in the beginning; slurry and inarticulate with a glazed expression in her eyes as if she’s reciting from a teleprompter. I don’t think she was – I think it was rehearsed and she was desperate to stay “on message” of denial. 

In classic Kim fashion, she was hours late for her sit-down with Dr. Phil leaving him waiting for the interview to start while she fussed over her appearance. Kim denies procrastinating and insists she was ready the whole time, apologizes insincerely. More classic Kim. Dr. Phil is prepared for Kim’s “controlling” behaviors and calls her out throughout the entire segment.

Bruce Jenner 20/20 Gender Transition Interview With Diane Sawyer

Bruce Jenner’s candid and powerful interview with Diane Sawyer last Friday night provided a lot of insight into just how long he’s been struggling with gender identity, and how much this struggle has affected his kids through the years. Bruce’s eldest kids, Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody, his children from his first two marriages to Chrystie Crownover and Linda Thompson, were heavily featured on the interview showing their unwavering support for their dad’s now public journey in transitioning to a woman. In a previously unaired clip, the former Olympic Medalist and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star goes into more detail about his absence as a father in his young kids’ lives during the 1980s: “The big, formative years for them, I was really struggling with these issues,” Bruce, 65, told Sawyer. “I talked to all of the boys about this after the fact, that, yeah, I didn’t do a good job. And I apologized to my kids for that.”

Despite his previous absence from their lives, Bruce’s eldest kids are speaking out now about their renewed hopes for the future.  Daughter Casey, 34, says, “We have a very complex relationship. He’s disappeared out of our lives, especially out of my life. So I’m looking forward to this next chapter.” And son Brandon, 33, told Sawyer, “Us missing, you know, a time of our lives is still probably the hardest thing for us to deal with. We’re trying not to look back. We’re just looking forward.” He added, “In seeing him come out to me, and explain his true self, I was more proud right then to carry the last name Jenner and to be a part of the family than at any time before.” Burt, 36, echoed his siblings’ loving and positive outlook: “The one thing I think that we have gained that means more to us than anything is the honesty.”

Life Twirls On

Oh happy day! The trailer for Kenya Moore‘s sitcom, Life Twirls On, is out! As you can see above, the cast includes Kenya, Cynthia Bailey, Cynthia’s ex Leon Robinson, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and One Life to Live star Janet Hubert, Kenya’s BFF Brandon DeShazer, and more.

The synopsis reads – “Three grown sisters, who share the same last name of Brown, are suddenly forced to move in together after the most successful sister has a nervous breakdown from ending a 1-day marriage.”

The trailer looks even worse than I imagined. With the exception of D. Woods, Janet, and Timon Durrett, the acting leaves a lot to be desired. (On a shallow note, hello, Timon! Where has this hottie been hiding?) That said, Life Twirls On might be sooo bad that it ends up being really good. For a laugh. Adjust the volume on your device, watch the trailer below, and tell us what you think!

NeNe Leakes

NeNe Leakes stopped by New York Live to talk about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Of course NeNe has a lot to say now that she doesn’t have anyone to challenge her on her own little press tour. When asked to accept responsibility for her words and actions on the reunion, however, all she had to say was, “You’re right. I’m wrong.” Typical NeNe.

NeNe shared her thoughts on the “gang ups” on the reunion, jealousy from her co-stars, the newer cast versus the original cast, and more. About the reunion, she shared, “There was definitely gang ups and I kind of understand. I’ve been there since the beginning and a lot of girls come on this show and they are like, “OK, let me take NeNe on, that’s the first one I’m gonna get.'”

Variety’s Power of Women

In the wake of Bruce Jenner’s ground breaking interview with Diane Sawyer, the rest of the Kardashians are scrambling to revamp their images as kind, authentic, rigorously honest people too. Juuuuuuust kidding! In an effort to remain the Queen of All Things Shallow and Vapid, Kim Kardashian shared at Variety’s Power of Women luncheon in New York that her selfie obsession is rubbing off on daughter North West (22 months). And she couldn’t be a prouder mommy. “She [North] has a computer of mine with all of these movies and music on it, and I was just using it, and I noticed the Photo Booth, there were all these selfies of her, that she doesn’t realize she’s taking, but she presses it, and it’s so funny,” says the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. “So we do take lots of pictures together.”

Adding her wisdom on the “power of the selfie,” Kim explains, “I think it’s really cute when you go and the girls, they ask for a selfie, and they say, ‘Will you post this on your Instagram? It’s so funny to see the power of a selfie… As silly as that may seem, it really makes their day.” Can’t you just picture Kim in a Skeletor pose wielding an iPhone? By the Power of Butt-Naked Instagrams! I have the SELFIE! Erghh.

southern charm whitney landon

I hate Mondays, y’all. Or rather, I hate Mondays until I get my Southern Charm fix! Nothing is more hilariously rich than Ms. Pat using the phrase “bitch slapping,” am I right? As the recaps for this bourbon and bow-tied deliciousness are a tad verbose for my liking, let’s get to the meat (medium rare dry-aged rib eye from Hall’s, naturally) without the pleasantries of an introduction, shall we? 

After a big night out for Shepstradamus’ birthday, Kathryn Dennis is recovering on Jennifer Snowden’s sofa having gotten into a fight with tequila and losing to Jose Cuervo. Jennifer attempts to cure her friend’s hangover with “rich people water,” listening to Kathryn lament about her current situation with Thomas Ravenel. Kathryn doesn’t care if T-Rav is mad that she spent the night away from Kensington, she’s just so exhausted from trying to make things work. Kathryn thought they were a team, but Sandy Duncan is hellbent on causing a rift between the couple with her campaign planning mojo. Across town, Shepard “Shep” Rose calls Landon Clements as he struggles to iron his shirt on the corner of his bedside table. He’s getting ready to show his mother the progress on his house, and he needs to look presentable. Who was as surprised as I was to learn that Shep owns an iron? And who found it as adorable as I did when he joked he was holding out for the right ironing board? Season 2 Shep is head and broad shirtless shoulders above his season 1 counterpart! Mama Shep is everything you’d expect her to be, and she’s a bit concerned about his transitional neighborhood. Reminding us that he’s still a bit of a douche, Shep points out a neighbor’s Audi that he promises isn’t stolen. Mama Shep has already bought the home’s furnishings (she still dresses him for goodness sake!), and she urges him to get an oven, if not for soup then at least for resale value. Now that Shep has a house, she’s ready for him to lock down a spouse. Shep admits that he has an upcoming date…that’s a start!

lhhatl karlie rasheedah

From what I understand from you dear readers, we won’t be seeing Joseline Hernandez on the first few episodes of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta due to her behavior on last season’s reunion. It’s kind of like when I got suspended from cheering in one high school football game for being late to practice one too many times. Breaking bottles over people’s heads, tardiness…both valid reasons to use suspension as a punishment. Lessons learned in both cases for sure! At least we can count on Stevie J, Lil Scrappy, and Kirk Frost’s antics to entertain us in her absence, right? At least Rasheeda is now aware of Kirk’s secret downtown “office”! 

Last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta begins with Stevie confronting Nikko in a dark parking lot. Both men pretend to push one another (with nary contact made) before being dramatically pulled apart by the production team. Thankfully, the other guys on this show are acting more like gentlemen. Yung Joc is dressed for the part of day at the driving range with Scrappy and Kirk. Scrappy admits he’s more strip club than golf course. Joc is in a serious relationship with Khadiyah, and Kirk questions how many children his friend has total, crossing his fingers that someone besides Stevie has more kids than he does. Joc has eight in his brood, including two sets of twins (whose moms were pregnant at the same time). Pheeww! Kirk breathes a sigh of relief…he’s only got six kids and four grandchildren. Kirk reveals that he’s been hanging with his artist Ashley, who he met at a sports club…just like his last lady “friend,” but it’s totally professional no matter how attractive he finds her. He also tells his friends that Rasheeda has no clue about his downtown crib and money problems. As only Scrappy can (unintelligibly and sans subtitles), he warns his friend to not to mix biz-nigh-ee with banging.
