Quick question…how can you tell when people just want to live their lives in the reality television spotlight? Apparently the answer lies within VH1′s show Couples Therapy. It seems to be the show that has-been reality couples go to revive their careers (how’s that working out, Guard and ProtectKasey Kahl?). Even the couples who are adamant about their strong unions seem so seek out the “self-help” show when they fall off the reality radar.
Case in point? Silex. Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen were attached at the hip for their seasons on Real Housewives of New York. The goo-goo-ga-ga couple often bragged about their intense connection and spending minimal time apart. In fact, the couple spent a ridiculous amount of time looking down their noses at their counterparts for not having as strong a union as they shared…maybe by “union” I mean wardrobe…
It’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewedReal Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson’s book More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! along with her Wines By Wives club, her joint venture with Tamra Barney.
August was all about the Housewives of Atlanta – Kim Zociak, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. We gave Mary a month off from ‘testing’, as we don’t want to pay for her rehab nor be forced to co-author her memoir “Will Blog For Booze” and since I love me some cheap wine moscato, I took one for the team!
Insiders tell TMZ that Khloe is among six finalists in the running for a spot on The X Factor. Mrs. Odom is hoping to land the job as a host on the show. The final six are due to start their screen tests in the next two weeks.
Some of the others being considered for the spot: Eddie Murphy’s girlfriend Rocsi Diaz, Mario Lopez, Stacy Keibler, Kelly Osbourne, Erin Andrews and The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham.
I’d love to see Khloe on TV doing something other than KUWTK. How about you? Vote below!

Well LuAnn, knowing from experience, warns Adrienne not to let a reality show interfere with her marriage or her family. I mean after all, one doesn’t want to become a disgraced discountess!
“Don’t let reality TV mess with your family,” the Real Housewives of New York star warns Adrienne. LuAnn has experienced her husband’s infidelity (and her own) becoming a show plot-line and she has also been involved in accusations against her teenaged daughter on the show.
Last week I spoke with Sheree Fletcher from Hollywood Exes. Hot on the heels of a drama-filled episode where Sheree experienced some conflict with Jessica Canseco, we talked about how the cast maintains true friendships and what her experiences with both reality TV and being thrust into the public eye have been. I also spoke to Sheree about merging her strong religious beliefs with reality television.
Sheree was so gracious and down-to-earth. She was open-minded, friendly, and we had an earnest conversation about her experiences with the show, the other women, and building her brand Whoop Ash.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
Sheree shares that her motivation for joining the show was an appreciation of the concept. “I liked what the producers were trying to do. The focus was on the women; I wouldn’t have been a part of a show that focused on my ex.”
From the get-go the premise was to focus on a group of women who were once married to “high profile” men and had common experiences. “They wanted to put together a sorority of sorts where women could come together and share their experiences and empower and support one another,” Sheree explains.

After Ang threw financial caution to the wind on last week’s episode, I couldn’t wait to see what Big Ang had to offer last night! This show has been ebbing and flowing all season in my opinion. Fun times, boring times, over-the-top times, and more dull times. I love Ang, but I need more drama. Does anyone agree? Of course, I didn’t want said drama to be the arrest of her son A.J.
Ang’s house is finally getting furnished. She actually paid $5,000 to have her sofa upholstered in black patent leather. I can only imagine how sticky and noisy that will be for the people who are brave enough to sit on it. Comfy! As more furniture is brought in, her house is looking more and more like what I imagine a porn set would look like. Neil just watches in dismay as his wife barks orders. Ang is hoping that now that the house is complete, A.J. will want to move back home with her.
Levi called the paparazzi to let them know he could be photographed leaving a courthouse this week, as he picked up papers to start the process of gaining full custody of his son Tripp. Apparently Levi has been watching Bristol’s show and has decided that Tripp is better off with him. At this point, Tripp’s chances of survival would be better with a pack of wolves in the Alaskan wild, but that’s just me.

With Teen Mom in it’s final season it is clear that some of the stars are scrambling to be relevant outside of the trainwreck TV show that made them a household name. Farrah Abraham has had a rocky relationship with her parents and her questionable decisions have kept viewers wondering for seasons.
Farrah claims she was at rock bottom following the birth of Sophia and the death of Sophia’s father Derek Underwood. All the stress and heartache had the reality star feeling suicidal, but now she has found music and all that changed!
In a new interview with In Touch Weekly, Farrah claims her life has turned around and she has just wrapped her debut album. Farrah’s first single from the new album, “Finally Getting up From Rock Bottom,” is about finding her happy. “I’m happy again, and this is my song for finding happiness,” Farrah shares.
