Reality Tea

2013 MTV Music Video Awards

Real Housewives of New Jersey is upon us – and with it comes the mayhem that always follows. With a brand new cast – that also includes their own family drama – plus the addition of Melissa Gorga‘s former bestie Amber Marchese, things are bound to get interesting. Finally somebody that knew Missy way back when.. 

Melissa warns – it gets exciting! “There’s some hair-pulling! There’s arguments, there’s a lot of laughs. I definitely think the new girls came ready to go. I think the viewers are going to love watching all of this unexpected stuff.”

Melissa is also gearing up for a different kind of season; one where she and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice finally aren’t at odds. “I feel like I don’t want to fight anymore. I think we’ve agreed to disagree on certain things,” Melissa says of her relationship with Teresa. “There’s a bigger picture going on obviously in her life. I think right now, she needs family, and it’s a time for family to back her up, and her brother and I are here for her.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies have been on a media blitz this week to promote the premiere of season 6, which kicks off on Sunday night. 

Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo stopped by to chat with the ladies of The View this week.  Teresa Tweeted the photo above, “Great interview at @theviewtv with @JennyMcCarthy @SherriEShepherd.” 

During her interview Teresa shared that she’s focused on her family and grieving her father-in-law.  “This past year has been like a roller coaster. It’s been an amazing education on the way our legal system works. Right now what I’m focusing on is my family.  I just lost my father-in-law. My husband, not only did he lose his dad but he lost his best friend…that’s what I’m focusing on my family.”

Am I watching the same Real Housewives of Atlanta that Cynthia Bailey is?  Because “positive” is not the word that immediately comes to mind when I think of our illustrious scepter Bedroom Kandi Felonious Husband Wig peach-wielding women of Bravo!

Despite the brawls, the bickering, and the bad behavior Cynthia still feels the show sets a positive and empowering example for women! She does? “I don’t think anyone felt good about that situation,” Cynthia admits about the reunion brawl. “However, I do think that in so many other ways, we are still a great platform and are great examples of empowerment.”

Kate Gosselin Jon Gosselin

This is the divorce that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends…

Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin are continuing to battle over the reality TV empire that is their 8 children. Jon lashed out by being involved in a Kate tell-all which painted the wannabe momager as a tyrant, but Kate is now fighting back by reportedly having nannies spy on Jon while the children are in his care!

Reportedly Kate has no qualms about owning up to having Jon watched – because she doesn’t trust him! “The only reason Kate was so strict on the nannies pertaining to Jon is because he tells the tabloids what is going on within the family,” says a source.

Brandi Glanville and Wendy Williams are set to host the “World’s Largest Bachelorette Party” in Las Vegas this weekend. Whose bright idea was this?!?! I mean, the venue and the open bar are right up Brandi’s alley, but I don’t think I’d want her anywhere near impressionable brides-to-be.

As we know, all too well, Brandi‘s marriage to Eddie Cibrian didn’t end well.

Fast forward five years… the vitriolic Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said she believes Mr. Right is out there, but she doesn’t see marriage in her future. “I don’t plan on getting marriage again,” she declared. “But I do welcome meeting the man that will make me change my mind about that.”

rhonj-season-5-cast

Are yous ready for this? Real Housewives of New Jersey is ba-ack this Sunday. Before we dive into the new New Jersey, let’s rehash last season so we’re all prepared. Undoubtedly the theme for season five was Love & Fight. The cast made amends and broke up every other episode!

We were promised a season of family reunification but it was really more of the same old family crucification. The cast took their battling, bickering, and brawling all across the USA since Juicy was banned from international travel via his bail agreement #FlightRisk, where they attempted to mend fences with therapists, magic pony rides, and “truthing” exercises. And it all came crashing down again when they took a little venture to The Land of Posche.

In the end, we ended up right back where we started, but at least Bravo fired some people and a new cast might bring new dramas. Here’s hoping! Oh – and Teresa Giudice got indicted, so that’s also something new.

Kandi's Wedding finale

This week’s reality TV viewer numbers are in – and a lot of people tuned in to see Todd Tucker and Kandi Burruss get married. The finale of Kandi’s Wedding garnered 2.820 million viewers. That brings the season average to 2.49 million. For comparison’s sake, Tamra’s OC Wedding‘s average was 1.37 million viewers and I Dream of NeNe‘s average was 1.53 million viewers.

Married to Medicine‘s season finale attracted 1.917 million fans, which is a whopping 1.1 million MORE viewers than last week. Leading into the reunion specials, the season two average is 1.76 million. While I think it’s obvious that Married to Medicine cannot stand on its own (the numbers plummeted both times RHOA didn’t air in front of it), I think Bravo will grant it a third season.
