Reality Tea


On this week’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels, Chantelle Fraser took the formidable Demetria Lucas head on at the shade-throwin’ Hamptons dinner heard round the world. Now she’d like to explain just why she acted the way she did, and basically why she fundamentally dislikes Demetria. When asked in her Bravo blog the reason she went into uber-protective mode over good friend Geneva Thomas (and locked horns with Demetria as a result), Chantelle replied, “I am am not a passive aggressive person. I face issues head on and am not intimidated by anyone or afraid to voice my opinion. Geneva was disinvited to the wedding, because she ‘didn’t control me.’ The nerve! That’s an insult in itself. I cannot be owned by anyone nor am I Geneva’s child.” So, was Chantelle surprised Demetria fled the Hamptons trip after their argument? “No not at all,” she says, “She is another one that can dish it but can’t take it.”

Chantelle further explains that she thinks Demetria is playing mind games, and she wants none of it! She claims, “Demetria was being passive aggressive hiding behind Greg, and it was clearly a control tactic asking Geneva to apologize to HER man to negotiate her way back into the wedding. (Manage your own relationship, Demetria!).” Chantelle also questions Greg’s heavy influence over Demetria in their relationship: “Also, I’m not buying it that Greg can dictate to Demetria who she invites to her wedding. Come on, people! I would laugh in my man’s face if he tried to disinvite my best friend from my wedding. Secondly, Daisy [Lewellyn] having a breakdown in the afternoon because of Demetria’s dispassion toward her really affected me. At that point, I just wanted Demetria gone.”


Jill Zarin stars in new horror film

Jill Zarin is excellent at acting horrible and being a terror, so why not leverage those skills into acting in horror films?! Jill landed role in a new Eric Red directed horror film which co-stars Kelly Rutherford and Rob Morrow

The premise of the film is killer dogs, and I do not think Jill’s chihuahua Ginger will be co-starring alongside her. One never can tell with that Jill, however! The film doesn’t appear to have a name that’s been revealed yet, but they are filming in New Orleans. Good for Jill – after all, psychotic-ish behavior seems to be a natural fit for her

I’ll tell you what would be the true horror, however: Jill returning to Real Housewives Of New York! (Oh pleasepleasepleaseplease let it happen!)

You can see photos of Jill on set below.

Kristen Taekman went to the Berkshires expecting to have a peaceful weekend in beautiful surroundings, but instead she found herself in the midst of Dorinda Medley‘s rage! You guys, Kristen wasn’t trying to entice John at World Bar – she was just trying to dance and have fun – she didn’t deserve to be Frotteured!

Giving her side of the story over the drama with Dorinda’s boyfriend John, and Bethenny Frankel‘s ice princess routine, the Real Housewives Of New York star is frankly shocked that everything escalated to such heights! Well, they were in the mountains… 

For Kristen it’s all Ramona Singer‘s fault that she got berated by Dorinda. “Ramona is such a sh– stirrer!” Kristen complains. “Ramona is constantly in the middle of it all. She starts it and passes it off to everyone else. Makes me nuts! So I was dumb for telling Dorinda to her face as opposed to talking behind her back? HELLO!”


Kim Richards

According to multiple reports, in light of her issues with alcohol, the law, and reality, Kim Richards will not be returning to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills next season. 

Most credible is E! News which states that Kim has been fired and will not be a Housewife for season 6. I guess Kathy doesn’t do magic… 

I find the timing of this news very telling. It was just reported that after Kim’s egregious behavior in Mexico Kyle Richards is done ‘going to bat’ for Kim and being her safety net.

Other stories have emerged saying that Kathy Hilton has cut Kim off financially as well. Apparently some people have been taking Dr. Phil‘s advice (finally!). Now emerges the news that Kim has been fired.


The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

Luann de Lesseps thinks Heather Thomson needs to be cool, not all uncool. In this week’s Bravo blog, the Real Housewives of New York’s resident Countess reviews the etiquette of Googling people’s dates, wearing elbow-length gloves to dinner, and offering meatballs to psychologically unstable dinner companions. Luann begins by praising Dorinda Medley’s beautiful home, and the sweet story of her father that went along with it. “The Berkshires in the winter is gorgeous, and Dorinda’s home is as vibrant as her personality,” she says, “I took a car from New York with Ramona [Singer], and I have to admit, it wasn’t all that bad! We’ve been through so much together that when we have a tiff, it’s more of a fender bender than a 95-car pileup. Boy, have things changed!” 

Luann questions whether Ramona is ready to close the Mario chapter also, reflecting that “I think Ramona enjoys her business partner’s company and that is why she invited him to Dorinda’s party, yet I don’t feel like she’s completely moved on from Mario–they aren’t even divorced yet. They’ve been married for so long that it’s going to take time before she feels comfortable in the dating scene.” Next, Luann questions Kristen Taekman’s sanity in bringing up John’s handsy behavior to Dorinda. (Doesn’t she know that kind of smack talk is done firmly behind our friend’s back? What are we here, animals!?) Luann asks, “Is Kristen nuts bringing up how she feels about John with Dorinda? You can see in the flashback video that Kristen was getting her groove on with John and didn’t seem to mind grinding on the dance floor in front of the girls and her husband. Her explanation that shimmying in the back isn’t the same as the front seems a little hypocritical to me. John makes Dorinda happy, and she’s opened up her heart to him, so her friends need to accept John for who he is…a kind, sometimes slightly inappropriate man who should heed Dorinda’s warning that these girls are looking to throw him under the bus.”


Sheree Whitfield wears black & white in Las Vegas

Sheree Whitfield‘s financial problems continue! Seriously, girl, have you never heard of a financial advisor???? In addition to owing money to seemingly everyone in Atlanta – from her attorneys to the State of Georgia to her ex-husband Bob Whitfield – She By SheBroke also owes the IRS a whopping $287,707.86!

Documents confirm that the former Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has been trying in vain to get Chateau Sheree to the livable stage, failed to pay federal taxes from 2009 – 2013!

But the good news is, we get to watch the whole thing on Teen Mom 2 she’s finally getting some help!

A source closely connected with Leah reveals that the Teen Mom 2 star is in Utah receiving treatment at an in-patient facility and will likely be released by the end of June.
