Reality Tea

Caroline manzo lauren manzo

Lauren Manzo is one step closer to walking down the aisle, all thanks to a little help from her mama, Caroline Manzo. The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star is busy planning her daughter’s nuptials to her long-time boyfriend, Vito Scalia, set for next year.

Now they can knock one major thing off the wedding to-do list, because the ladies recently ventured to Vera Wang in New York City, along with Lauren’s matrons of honor, to find the perfect wedding gown and they shared snapshots along the way. Will this perhaps be featured on Manzo’d With Children too??

rhony season 6 reunion

Last night was the final-final episode of Real Housewives Of New York, and I may be alone in this sentiment, but I’m gonna miss them! 

As the tail-end of the reunion, the drama was lackluster as all the mini-feuds were unscabbed and reargued part deux. At the center of most of the messes is Aviva Drescher. Among her many issues, she insists she was paying Carole Radziwill a compliment when she said, “At least I’m not 50 years old…” during their bookgate argument. Apparently in the convoluted twisted land of Avicious’ mind saying that someone is 50 and alone is a compliment, because she actually thought they were older. Ramona Singer, tact police, tut-tuts that even in a pinot-laced haze she knows that’s no compliment. That’s Aviva’s MO, to make a nasty comment and then claim the other person misconstrued it and she was actually trying to say xyz… 

Avicious‘ other MO is to drop classicist epithets. Last night’s recipient was Heather Thomson. Aviva is appalled by Heather’s use of the phrase “mother f–ka” because Aviva says it sounds “gangster” and Heather did not grow up in the ghetto – nor has she been to prison. Apparently those are the only places people learn such language. Which confuses me because didn’t Aviva tell Kristen Taekman to “shut the F–k up“? Was Aviva in prison unbeknownst to us? She should be! Or perhaps Vassar was teaching a Ghetto Language Course? Needless to say Heather is offended by Aviva’s ignorance.

dance moms maddie bow

Last night’s Dance Moms starts off on a high note…for once! After succeeding in the group number against the Candy Apples, the girls gather in the studio. Gino is a distant memory and will go down in ALDC history as the kid who made perfect Maddie lose a duet. Poor kid. Maddie is absent because she’s in Los Angeles recreating her Chandelier video on Ellen. Have you seen it? It’s almost creepier than the actual video because Sia spends the entire time refusing to show her face and singing in a corner. Of course, that makes me love her and the song even more, and Maddie is quite the talent. If only Abby Lee Miller would stop trying to pit her against her friends…

Shockingly, Maddie is on the bottom of the pyramid for her absence, followed by Chloe for her fall. At least she gives her a tiny bit of credit for continuing on like a professional…a smidgen of credit if you will. Nia takes the spot after Chloe because, you know, Nia isn’t a ballerina as we’re reminded again, and again, and again. Newbie Sarah is the bottom of the next rung, much to Christ-y’s chagrin. MacKenzie is in second, although Abby calls her out from detracting from the number for being too short. Kendall is in the top spot (although, did you notice, there wasn’t a top of the pyramid?) for taking the piece so seriously.

DuJour Magazine Summer Kickoff

Just one day after adamantly defending her marriage as fine and shouting down accusations of cheating as “ALLEGATIONS” on the Real Housewives of New York reunion Ramona Singer revealed on twitter that she was ending her marriage to Mario. Again. 

Perhaps it was a coincidence that the very same day a photo of Mario and mistress Kasey Dexter was released in the tabloids, or perhaps Ramona did not want to spill details at the reunion because she was hoping to sell her divorce story to a tabloid?

Sources assert that Ramona’s true reason for trying to shut down the conversation was she was shopping the story around to several major news organizations and did not want to give away the story for free at the reunion. At the time of taping the couple had been separated for weeks after a disastrous vacation to try and repair their marriage,  as well as several arguments over Ramona’s drinking and behavior. However, after Ramona’s failed attempt to make money off her tragedy, she decided to just drop the bomb on twitter.

Melissa Gorga Previews The Melissa Gorga Jewelry Collection For HSN

So far this season on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa Gorga has been somewhat of a supporting character. Instead of being in the thick of all the drama and fighting with her sister-in-law, she is standing on the sidelines, even if that means stirring the pot a bit every now and then.

After all, she was the bird chirping in Nicole Napolitano’s ear about what Amber Marchese had told her, which led to the costume party hair pull heard across the Garden State. So where does she stand after the smoke has cleared?

tamra vs. lizzie on rhoc

My, my! After several seasons under Tamra Barney‘s dictatorship is Real Housewives of Orange County set to get a new queen? By the way: Who dubbed Tamra queen in the first place?

After a confrontation in Bali helmed by Lizzie Rovsek, Tamra has been left virtually friendless among her castmates. Tamra believes Lizzie orchestrated the entire showdown to remain relevant on the show and get some attention. 

“For the life of me I have no idea why Lizzie has such a problem with me. I was always so nice to her. One thing that comes to mind is maybe she is used to being the center of attention? So, when things don’t go her way she tries to destroy me and even threatens to destroy her own marriage. She can not handle NOT being the princess of O.C., and she will fight for the RHOC crown. Good luck girl I am not giving that up without a fight,” Tamra says. Oh dear lord… 

Princesses, crowns – ladies, aren’t we a little old for this? This isn’t Real Housewives of PreSchool. Oh wait…

Kim Zolciak

Since the beginning of this season of Don’t Be Tardy, we have seen Kim Zolciak’s husband, Kroy Biermann limp around Zolciak Manor both with and without a cast. The cast came courtesy of a season-ending torn Achilles tendon that Kroy received last September, causing him to miss the rest of the season with the Atlanta Falcons.

Well, as the 2014-15 NFL season gets underway, Kroy is healthy and ready to go. So is Kim worried at all about Kroy returning to the game that hurt him so badly?
