Oh reality television stars… you never cease to amaze me. One of the greatest things about reality TV is scathing, over the top, out of control ridiculous cat fights, arguments, and behind the back insults. It’s what differentiates reality from reality TV. See, I would never call someone a “dumb drag queen” … but in the wilds of reality TV, anything goes!
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our favorite reality TV insults. Below is some delightful footage of our hardworking stars doing what they do best – acting nutty and getting paid to do so! Let the memories come flooding back.
As if any of you were planning to watch the fifth season of Basketball Wives, I have some breaking news that may just send you over the edge completely. TMZ.com is reporting that three of the ladies (and yes, these may actually be considered ladies) are getting axed from the show. While nothing has been confirmed, VH1′s official statement is, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.” However, when you hear who is getting the boot–and why–I doubt you’ll be surprised.
First to hit the road is Royce Reed. Why? I would say it’s obvious. First, a lot of the women, including Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal herself, refuse to film with Royce. I am guessing that makes it more difficult to have a legitimate story line. She doesn’t go on the cast trips, isn’t invited to birthday dinners, and misses out on all the bottle throwing and brawls. Lucky. Second, due to a gag order that has been in place since 2009, she isn’t even allowed to say the name of the basketball player to whom she was never a wife. Sorry, Royce, but the writing seems to be on the wall for you.
Last night’s Around the World in 80 Plates found the chefs in Bologna, Italy. It’s a tad awkward because the teams remain on the same team. That means Liz Garrettand Jenna Johansen are going to have issues. After an immune Liz voted for Jenna in the last challenge, Jenna is confused. Wasn’t she Liz’s biggest cheerleader in the kitchen? Um, maybe Jenna is confusing “cheerleader” with “bitter Betty.” John Vermiglio reminds his remaining teammates that they are all great chefs…although some might be clumsier than others. #curseofthewhitebeans
The black team (Nookie Postal, Avery Purcell, Nick Lacasse, and the immune Nicole Lou) is riding the high of their win. Both teams arrive at the Parmigiano Reggiano Creamery where they get their first clue. They learn that the winner of this course will win $10,000. Each team must find three wheels of cheese which are marked with a triangle, signifying that the cheese hasn’t aged properly. No big deal, right? Both teams enter the creamery where they are greeted by walls and walls and walls (and WALLS!) of cheese. Right of the bat, the red team finds one marked wheel, then another. They are leaving with their third wheel as the black team finds their second. The members of the red team collect their next clue. They must deliver one wheel of cheese to Tamburini Salumeria in the historic district of Bologna. John is glad that Jenna and Liz have put aside their differences to work together.
Well, I have a lot I want to say on this matter, but I think I’ll mainly refrain from commenting and let you esteemed readers do my dirty work! So, Lauren Manzo is getting some magazine covers of her own. This is hot on the heels of her complaining that Teresa Giudice is getting paid to talk to the ‘bloids.
Anyway, Lauren recently spoke to Us Weekly (via their print edition) about her weight loss and surprise, surprise it had little to do with drinking egg whites and lots to do with lap band surgery which allowed her to lose 30lbs. Lauren had the surgery on September 21st and says that combined with a healthier diet and exercise, she has dropped from 185lbs to 155lbs in nine months.
“Don’t believe everything you read, I’m definitely not pregnant. I’m on the pill. And, I’m only 20–I don’t want to have kids until I’m out of school and we’re married.”
I have to admit, I’m relieved that the rumors were false. Good for Catelynn for keeping her focus on school and their upcoming wedding. This girl continues to impress. She and Tyler Baltierra seem to be the ones with the best odds at achieving some sense of normalcy in their lives.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK CATELYNN HAS THE BEST CHANCE AT A NORMAL LIFE OUT OF ALL THE TEEN MOMS?
Vh1 is about to unleash Hollywood Exes upon us. The show will follow the lives of five women once married to major Hollywood A-listers. Now that they’re no longer married to huge stars, the ex-wives are hitting up realty TV to resuscitate their images. Sadly, it probably won’t have the desired effects, but anyway, the drama on this show looks over the top and these girls are going the distance to get some attention!
Per VH1: “Simply put, these girls are starting over. They all divorced young and got married even younger so now is when they need each other’s backs the most. And from raising kids to starting up a new business … these women are ready to tackle a VERY busy year.”
“At a glance, all these girls are at a different phase in their relations with their exes. Some have remained friends while others can’t even say their names out loud, but either way, the girls have the support of each other to fall back on. These women aren’t exactly new acquaintances either. Some have known each other even before they were married so there is clearly a strong sisterhood within the group dynamic. ”
Hollywood Exes premieres Wednesday, June 27th at 9/8c on VH1
There must be something in the water because it’s baby news galore in the reality TV world. It seems everyone is pregnat, trying to be, or talking about babies!
First up, Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell is reportedly pregnant with baby no 2! Months before she’s due to walk down the aisle with fiancé Tyler Baltierra, Catelynn is apparently telling friends she is expecting.
Jamie Pyrzewski, a friend of the reality star shared the news with the never reliableIn Touch Weekly. “She said, ‘You’re never going to believe it: I’m pregnant,’” Jamie dishes, adding that she is one of the first people out of a small group of friends and family that Catelynn told – which is why she’s spilling the details to a national magazine.
“We were both quiet. I asked how she felt about it. She said she was nervous and scared,” Jamie adds. At first Catelynn was apparently panicked, but now she’s thrilled.
I’m holding onto the knowledge that Barbara, Jenelle Evan’s always amusing mom, will be back on my TV soon enough on Teen Mom 2. As long as I have Barbara in my life, I think I’ll be able to cope without Teen Mom. If Teen Mom 2 ever is canceled, I’m going to need therapy to learn how to go on with my life. Take a deep breath, grab the tissues, and let’s start the beginning of the end.
