Reality Tea

rhony-recap-sonja-harry-ring

Last night on Real Housewives of New York we celebrated the contrast between good and evil as if that isn’t the perpetual theme of these shows. 

Carole Radziwill is turning 50 and wants to celebrate with an over-the-top party in the theme of Good vs. Evil, or basically Ramona and Aviva vs. Carole. Carole enlists her bestie Heather Thomson to plan it but her list of demands is staggering. Things Carole wants for her birthday party:  butterflies, chandeliers from her house hung up at the restaurant, headless mannequins, a snake charmer, shiny red apples, a psychic (are we sure she doesn’t mean a psychiatrist?), fire breathing dragons with angels on their wings, 30 dozen white rose petals, the 12 horsemen of the apocalypse, three french hens, and a partridge in a pear tree.  Oh and 6 well behaved Housewives, but we all know that ain’t gonna happen! 

Heather decides to just be in charge of the booze and hires a party planner stat.

Jill Zarin luncheon

On Sunday, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin hosted the Second Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her home in Southampton. The event raised money for the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

Among the guests, who were treated to lunch, high-end gift bags, trunk shows, beauty treatments, and more, were Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey, former co-stars Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, Millionaire Matchmaker‘s Patti Stanger, and former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Kathy Wakile.

When asked why she organizes the event, Jill shared, “It’s a very complicated event in the sense that there’s no one reason that I do it. I do it because I want to give stuff to my friends, I do it because I want to raise awareness for charity, and I do it because I want to have a good time.” I will volunteer as tribute if Jill wants to give me free stuff. 😉 Check out more pictures below.

This is rich. In fact, it’s amazing. Not only does it involve one of the hottest (in my opinion at least) reality stars, he’s making quite a statement. Brody Jenner, thank you for making my day. 

Remember when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West married in a ridiculous spectacle complete with one of the Pinkett-Smith children dressed in a Batman costume? Of course you do, it wasn’t even 72 days ago! Well, think back to who wasn’t famewhoring with Keeping up with the Kardashians during the country hopping shindig. No, I’m not talking about Rob Kardashian being a no-show. I’m talking about Brody’s dreamy mug basically snubbing his step-sister’s third wedding. At the time, I thought,  Maybe he doesn’t like weddings? But alas, he went to one last weekend…and it was for Kim’s ex-love Reggie Bush. I told you this was amazing.

The tireless question of this season’s Real Housewives of New York is this: How did Aviva Dreschers prosthetic end up on the floor?! 

In the upcoming season finale, we’re shown footage of Heather Thomson yelling and Aviva’s leg laying on the carpet. “During a wild argument” between cast members, “Aviva yells, ‘What do you want from me? To crawl out of here?’ All the while, she’s shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table,” a source reveals. Then Aviva “throws it, in front of a crowd of shocked people.”

Brandi Glanville

Earlier this year, Brandi Glanville made a point to tell fans that she is a very busy lady. When she’s not filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she’s writing for an Australian magazine, filming video blogs, embarrassing herself on her podcast, and raising her boys.

Brandi forgot to mention author of Drinking & Tweeting and Drinking & Dating. But she shared this list of jobs on Watch What Happens Live, so she was probably drinking and interviewing.

Well it sounds like Brandi‘s list has grown! On her latest podcast, she bragged, “I have a lot of great business things going on.” Brandi went on to reveal that she’s developed a “Blunders Block” app to keep us from drinking and tweeting or drinking and twittering when we’re drunk. Cause everyone drinks to the point of stupidity like Brandi does, right?

Amber Marchese red dress rhonj

Brand spankin’ new Real Housewives of New Jersey star Amber Marchese has come out guns blazing against former friend Melissa Gorga. And she’s about to get a baptism by fire in being on a reality TV show!

However, it turns out neither Amber, nor her husband Jim Marchese, are strangers to drama! Their lives are definitely worthy of a reality TV show. 

Amber’s husband Jim has quite an interesting past – and it turns out he’s definitely not one to duck and cover either! In 2002 Jim reported his former employer Cell Therapeutics to the federal government on the grounds of Medicare fraud.

Hot Photos: Real Housewives of New Jersey Cast Celebrates The Premiere With A Party

The much anticipated sixth season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off Sunday night on Bravo. While most of us sat in the comfort of our own home for free (well, save for the cable bill and mortgage, unless you’re living the Bravo lifestyle and have stopped paying your bills) to watch the premiere, a bunch of fans paid $100 to drink Fabellini and watch the premiere almost in the same room as Joe and Teresa Giudice, Jim and Amber Marchese, Joe and Melissa Gorga, and Dina Manzo. Crazy. 

Velocity 1 Media hosted the Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere party at the Pure Restaurant and Lounge in New Jersey. Proceeds from the tickets go to Project Ladybug, Dina‘s charity, and the Deborah Hospital Foundation.

According to a local news source, Dina was the only star who went out of her way to mingle with the guests. She regularly came out of the VIP room, where the RHONJ stars were stowed away, to meet and pose for pictures with fans. Melissa and Amber mingled with guests at the end of the event only. Juicy made a brief appearance by the ropes guarding the VIP room, looking like a bouncer, I’m sure. Teresa hid in the back of the VIP room all night.

UPDATE: Several party attendees reached to tell us that the local news report was not accurate.  Many have shared that Teresa did not hide from the guests and that all the ladies mingled.
