Reality Tea

In her latest blog, Kim Richards reveals her good intentions behind inviting Brandi Glanville to Kyle’s gay mixer, opens up about her sobriety and explains (sort of) what those late night calls to Brandi were all about.   The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says these issues with Kyle and Brandi are about much more than just Kim. 

Kim starts off sharing that she had the best of intentions by bringing Brandi to Kyle’s party, even though she had just got out of the hospital.  “Kyle is my sister, and Brandi is my friend, so naturally I was just hoping they could patch things up” 

Kim is convinced that Kyle and Brandi have much deeper problems that don’t involve her.  “Their feud may seem like it’s all about me, but it is something much deeper and goes way back before this  happened with me. We’ve all seen how their relationship progressively has gone downhill throughout the seasons. I mean, you all saw how Kyle and Brandi really started blowing up at each other over personal attacks, not over my situation! I don’t even want to go over in detail what was said… I don’t agree with anything that came out of their mouths that night. I was, and maybe still am, hurt—hurt by Kyle’s words and the dynamic between us three.”

Reality TV Viewer Numbers Vanderpump Rules

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and there were a few surprising losses.

On Vanderpump Rules, the drama surrounding Kristen and Miami Girl drew a larger crowd (1.691 million) than Scheana and Mike’s wedding (1.581 million). Before this week, the Celebrity Apprentice was averaging nearly 6.5 million viewers, but only 4.98 million tuned in to see the final task. I would say maybe Kenya was on to something when she took credit for the high ratings, however, Real Housewives of Atlanta suffered a substantial loss this week too.

Also this week, 2.543 million sat through the family drama on Love & Hip Hop, 1.855 million watched Kim and Kyle continue to be nasty to each other on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, 1.678 million (the second highest audience this season) tuned in to see Nia in the studio with Aubrey O’Day on Dance Moms, the season finale of Kate Plus 8 attracted 1.44 million fans, and a double dose of Sister Wives that no one asked for logged an average of 1.26 million.

We have a new photo roundup of reality stars out and about – including poor North West, whose parents claim to want privacy for her, but then put her front row at Fashion Week…again.  Nori got her payback last night at Kanye West’s big Adidas runway show, where she sat like a good Kim Kardashian daughter-bot for a few minutes (see above) and then threw a toddler tantrum right next to poor Beyonce and Anna Wintour (see below). 

Other reality stars were out and about for New York Fashion Week, too, like Cynthia Bailey hitting the runway for “Go Red Dress For Women.”  Kristen Taekman took in the shows, as well as La La Anthony

Other sightings this week:  NeNe Leakes landing at LAX, Bethenny Frankel on the school run and shooting some RHONY scenes with Carole Radziwill, and Dr. Jenn Berman doing a little shopping.   You’ll also find pics from Joanna Krupa, Snooki, and more!

Benzino demonstrates irony - flashes peace sign; got arrested for carrying a loaded gun.

I think we all can agree that no one is in Benzino’s corner like this gal. I’m his biggest fan. I’m a champion of those with no neck on which to balance their head. I believe that he’s a catch who needs to be appreciated for the complex man that he is. Don’t judge me.

The former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star seems like a stand up character compared to his friends and co-stars, but No-Neck seems to be racking up the arrests lately. It doesn’t look good when the show’s voice of reason keeps finding himself in handcuffs. I’m not going to say Mona was hasty in firing him from the upcoming season, but I’m guessing she is kicking herself from missing the opportunity to get all of Zino’s legal woes on film for ratings.

Kandi7

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker were guests on Steve Harvey’s show this afternoon and the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars dished on Mama Joyce, show storylines, and keeping it real on reality TV. 

Steve says that Kandi and Todd seem to be one of the realest reality couples. Kandi says that a lot of people worry before the new season about what they’re storyline will be, etc, but they don’t.  “We just put our life out there, we’re not secretive, we don’t try to hide things or portray ourselves a certain way.  Because I don’t think people like that anyway.  I think people relate to you more when you just give them your normal life.  We all go through the same things.” Todd says “we have real issues.”

Kim Kardashian For LOVE Magazine

Kim Kardashian has always been one for revealing details, but does she go too far in a new LOVE Magazine interview – where she also poses for a heavily photoshopped FULL FRONTAL

Proving there’s no amount of attention Kim is not above seeking (as if we didn’t know that already) the eternal Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spills all about her urination malfunctions, her favorite sexy times, how she is a boon to the economy, and reminisces about that sex tape!

Below are some juicy quotes from the article, where Kim was interviewed by model Cara Delevingne, as well as photos, and also photos of Kim trotting her favorite accessory North around! This version comes in a toddler-sized fur quote.
