RHONJ season 6 cast

Last night Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off its sixth season by diving right in to the thing most everyone is watching for: Teresa Giudice‘s indictment. 

We open with Melissa Gorga watching the news of Teresa and Joe heading to court to plead guilty to a 41-count federal indictment for a staggering number of financial frauds. Melissa, proving she’s no more an actress than a pop star, pretends to be shocked and worried for Teresa. Melissa vows to be there for Teresa. 

She calls her on the phone where Teresa is stirring a pot of colored water on the stove because the script read ‘pretend to cook ingredientzes’. Melissa expresses her concern and Teresa says they haven’t pled to anything yet, while Gia sits there with tears filling her eyes. I am really sad to see that reports were true and Teresa will indeed be filming how the legal situation affects her daughters. 


Sister 2 Sister Ladies Night

Some Real Housewives of Atlanta fans can’t get enough details and info on Apollo Nida’s fraud case and prison sentence.  For those people/fans, we now have the court documents that spell out the terms of Apollo’s guilty plea and the probation highlights, too. 

Apollo pled guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud – all other charges were dismissed.  Apollo was sentenced to 96 months in prison, but he may get out early if he attends a drug rehabilitation program during his stint in the big house.

According to court docs filed last week, Apollo will be on supervision for five years after he’s released.  The terms of his supervision are pretty standard, with community service hours to be served, no hanging out with other felons, etc.   Apollo also can’t open any new credit cards or lines of credit without approval and more. 

Also worth noting is that Apollo will pay restitution.  The amount will be decided at a later date, but the court waives the cost of his incarceration and no fine has to be paid.

sister wives christine truley

Hey! Remember on last week’s Sister Wives when Kody got showered in waste at the RV park? Good times for sure! The Browns are on their way across country to meet a Christian polygamist family whose faith isn’t rooted in Mormon principles. This guy is living Kody’s dream. He once got his wife to bake for him and then complained while she was baking that she wasn’t available to cuddle. What will remedy that? Another wife! Who is this guy and how stupid are his wives? 

Kody is sporting a fancier version of his usual denim button down. It’s got embroidery on it. Christine is a bit wary about driving across country to meet a family they don’t know. Janelle is happy to mingle with like-minded people. In the dark of night, the families meet, and Kody is beside himself trying to impress the cool Nathaniel Richard and his wives. From what I gather, he only has two wives. They admit to living a secret life, but the Richards share that there are a lot of plural families living in Missouri.

The Richards kids channel their best Sound of Music as they march their way through roll call. The families share a Passover meal where they celebrate (?) beasts and boils. Nathaniel is only thirty-three, and the Brown wives remember just how bright-eyed and idealistic Kody was at his age. From what I gather, the Richard family won’t be getting a spin-off any time soon. They aren’t hip even by Meri standards, and one of the wives is sporting a straight-up banana clip. Someone get this lady a scrunchie so we can at least bring her into the early 90s! 


Teresa Giudice Melissa Gorga RHONJ Season 6

Teresa Giudice is the master of putting on a happy face, despite the drama surrounding her. She’s always pretending everything is fine! But finally, unfortunately, the facade is being forced to crack as she and husband Joe Giudice deal with the upcoming federal sentencing related to a 41 count fraud indictment and the sudden loss of Joe’s father. 

In addition, with Real Housewives of New Jersey airing, Teresa’s problems are about to be thrust in our faces to dissect. And of course, since nothing with RHONJ is as it seems, the recent so-called reunited Teresa and Melissa Gorga are already falling apart. 

Reality Tea received an exclusive scoop from an inside source about what’s going on behind the scenes at RHONJ ‘Headquarters’.

Those crazy Jersey Shore kids have come a long way, baby!  Jenni “Jwoww” Farley is a mom for the first time!  Roger Mathews, Jenni’s fiance, announced this afternoon that their baby girl arrived today! 

The proud new dad wrote on Twitter, “She is here! Meilani Alexandra Mathews 7lbs 13 ounces. Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. Im Humbled.” 

 Game of Crowns cast

They’re called Mrs. Pageants. And they look like they’re going to be the perfect combo of women-of-a-certain-age shellacking themselves and each other into dresses and hairpieces, meaty husbands supporting (threatening?) them in the background, poor-man’s Vegas costumes, and a healthy sprinkling of good ole fashioned backstabbing.  Game of Crowns is a hot mess, missus style.

We meet Vanassa Sebastian first, the alpha female of the group, a breast cancer survivor and Native American from the Passamaquoddy tribe. Vanassa is no pageant virgin, having competed and placed in a former Mrs. America pageant, and formerly won Mrs. Connecticut. Vanassa’s husband, Brian, co-owns Foxwood Resort & Casino (Where my uncle goes to play the dollar slots on the regular. My aunt does not approve. Foxwoods is spoken of in hushed tones in our family circle.).

Phaedra and Apollo

Before we jump into a new week full of exciting premieres – Real Housewives of New Jersey, Game of CrownsTeen Mom 2Don’t Be Tardy, oh my! – let’s take a look back at last week’s reality TV news. 

Apollo Nida was sentenced to 96 months in prison on Tuesday. Leading up to his sentencing, he talked to the press (while his wife Phaedra Parks partied on a yacht) and lost a secret house to foreclosure. Ouch!
