Reality Tea

basketball-wives-la-season-three

Thank goodness for sources with the inside scoop! Reality Tea is fortunate to have one when it comes to Basketball Wives: LA, and our contact has been spot on with all of the assessments of the upcoming season. I am excited to see how it all plays out, especially in light of the anticipated Miami crossover!

Our insider has been sharing tidbits with us about the show for a while now. Filming of the new season is drawing to a close, and our behind the scenes informant shares that we need to expect the unexpected. Not everyone from Miami about whom we’d previously speculated actually made the jump to BBWLA, and the fan favorites are at odds with their co-stars. That’s the kind of drama I like!

Y’all. This girl can’t even. CAN’T EVEN! To say I’m over-the-moon about this would be the biggest understatement in the history of my love affair with reality television. To be completely honest, I think I’d be obsessed with Southern Charm even if it didn’t take place in my personal playground. Granted, by personal playground, I mean the place where the cable company mails my bills (semantics)…the only revelry I have in Charleston these days revolves around 50+ hour work weeks, wine, bagel bites and the occasional delicious beer at, well, Revelry. However, that’s about to change because Thomas Ravenel and crew are returning to Bravo on Monday, March 16th! {Squeals with delight!}

I don’t like to brag, but a few weeks ago I chatted with Shep Rose at Rue de Jean about the upcoming season. Okay, okay…so in his version of the story, I approached him like a Southern Charm fanatic (not to be confused with a groupie looking for a hook-up, although I’m not sure which is worse), asked questions he politely skirted, and forced him to pose for a picture, but still! I can confirm that they are all, in fact, good friends outside of the show, and he was a great sport about the entire debacle. Having learned my lesson, when I spotted Cameran Eubanks the other day at the grocery store, I gave her some space…even when she pulled her buggy behind me in line. See, I can exercise restraint! She was probably grateful for it, given that I’ve fan-girled her in the past–but that was for the job, dear readers. 🙂 That said, the recently released super-trailer for the upcoming season is epic!

Dance Moms girls

Well, the ALDC had a good run in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t good enough for Abby Lee Miller (what is ever good enough for her?). On last night’s Dance Moms, the team, the catty moms and the dance teacher from hell returned to Pennsylvania to continue their unique brand of drama. Holly is still fired up about Abby’s treatment of Nia in regard to Aubry O’Day and the Matty B video, and she’s upset with her fellow mothers for supporting Abby even when she was being completely unreasonable. Jill is on edge as well for being the only mom on Team Abby. Y’all know I’m not counting Melissa on that team as that’s just who she is. Back at the ALDC studio, the moms are tense as MacKenzie shares that she’ll be singing live in New York City. At least someone’s children are benefiting from Abby’s stellar management skills!

At pyramid, Abby berates her team for not being ready for L.A. She only coaches winners. Maddie is exempt from criticism because she wasn’t in the fray of insanity as she was busy guest starring on Disney’s Austin and Ally. Jill interrupts to remind Abby of her loyalty and hopes that everyone (read: Kendall) will now be in Abby’s good graces to reap the rewards in a quest for stardom. At first, I think Abby is going along with Jill’s flattery, but she quickly retorts that Maddie is the breakout because of Maddie’s talent (I’ll give Abby that for sure!), not because of Abby’s management. It must be hard for her not to take credit. Brynn is missing because her brother has serious diabetes and needs to be monitored. As Kira relays this news, Abby barks that they aren’t here to rip on Brynn. Um, Kira was simply stating that some things take precedent over dance, right? Kira can be a pot stirrer, but I don’t think that was her intention in this instance.

Andy Cohen and Brandi Glanville

The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion filmed recently, despite the season being far from over, and Andy Cohen shared that it was beyond dramatic and intense when a massive bombshell was dropped!

“It was super dramatic. It was emotional,” Andy revealed on an Ask Andy segment. “There was an 11th hour smoking gun that was revealed… which was amazing.” Many of the issues reportedly centered around Kim Richards‘ and Kyle Richards‘ relationship. 

Hmmm… what do you think the bombshell is – and who do you think it’s about?! And more importantly, who do you think revealed it?

Kim Kardashian Hollywood

The success of Kim Kardashian‘s mobile game Kim Kardashian Hollywood doesn’t surprise me. Like it or not, the Kardashians are a cultural phenomenon that isn’t going away anytime soon.

There are two things, however, which I do not understand. Why would anyone pay money to be a virtual Kim Kardashian? People are paying money – and a lot of it – to join their virtual Kim on virtual vacations, to dress their pretend self like the real Kim, and so on. It has been estimated that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will earn $85 MILLION this year from the game. And this brings me to my second question. Why is Kim taking her clothes off for obscure magazines every other week if she’s bringing in that kind of money for basically doing nothing? Obviously, it’s for the attention, but still. I don’t get it. 

In a recent interview, Kim talked about the game and its future, explained why she is obsessed with selfies and social media, talked season ten of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and more.

kandi burruss and todd tucker continue to argue over mama joyce

Kandi Burruss hasn’t had too many issues with her co-stars yet this season.  Most of her drama seems to be focused on husband Todd and her mother, Mama Joyce.  That said, Kandi took a little heat from Porsha Williams during this week’s episode because she didn’t chase after Phaedra Parks fast enough when she ran out of the group dinner.  Kandi addresses that and more in this week’s blog. 

Kandi shares that she’s keep a wary eye on NeNe Leakes and her suddenly attentive behavior toward Phaedra.  “Of course I’m skeptical. NeNe has been nice these last few months, but that does not make me forget the years of drama and insults that have come from her in the past. Yes, I get that people change, but it’s OK for me to proceed with caution as I would’ve thought Phaedra would. Well, hopefully things will continue to be great with them and NeNe can continue to be Phaedra’s rock.”
