*Sigh* When I started watching the Real Housewives of Orange County way back when I was intrigued by the wealthy and fantastical lifestyles of women very different from me. As Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives of New Jersey came onto the Housewives scenes, they were my two favorites of the franchise. They were light-hearted, silly, and kooky – and I loved the genuine friendships along with the realistic seeming issues between friends.
As with Atlanta, no one on this show likes each other anymore. It’s painful and obvious that even the supposed friendship scenes are fabricated and the ladies are dialing it in. Additionally, I am very tired of the husbands dominating the storyline. This is a show about Housewives – I don’t care about your hubby. If they are that interested in being housewives, get a sex change!
Even though Andy Cohen said that The Real Housewives spinoffs (new cities) were done and over after the addition of Miami, he may have had a change of heart. The rumors are back, claiming that The Real Housewives of Dallas is a definite “go”.
LaLate News reports that RHOD is now ready to start filming after contracts were signed for an initial ten episode first season. The cast is rumored to be a done deal, with the group photo already taken!
The site’s source claims that the new cast members are being paid equally – $110,000 for the first ten episodes ($11,000 per show). No word on who those cast members are just yet. I wonder if any of them will be the initial rumored cast?!
Bravo still hasn’t confirmed a word of it, but we’re hoping they’ll put us out of our misery soon – we hate suspense!!!
TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED OVER THE POSSIBILITY OF A DALLAS FRANCHISE?
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives, and one never knows what is going to happen with this rowdy group of women…especially since there’s a dreaded meeting between to women who have a penchant for beating the poo out of each other.
Renee Graziano and Drita D’Avanzo meet for cocktails to discuss everything that has been going on in their lives. Drita relays the news that Lee will not be transferred to a prison in Brooklyn. Renee outlines her father’s plea deal, and she is relieved that the other people that Junior affected didn’t get much time. Renee has also scheduled the meeting between Drita and Karen Gravano for the following day. Drita is willing to go so the pair can move forward, but she doesn’t want Karen rehashing the past. Good luck with that!
Well, those 12 people who signed up to cruise with former reality star Kate Gosselin this August are going to be realllly disappointed. Royal Caribbean announced today that the event has been canceled.

Last night was the two hour finale of Survivor, and it’s a battle among the last ladies standing. Jeff Probst recaps the season’s highlights, including Colton Cumbie’s rise to power and prompt demise and the ladies’ ultimate come back.
It’s the thirty-sixth night on the beach, and the women have voted off the last man. Alicia is very confident in her friendship with Kim, but I think she may be tooting her own horn a tad too early. The following day, Sabrina and Kim collect the tree-mail. Kim approaches Sabrina about voting off Chelsea next, as she’s worried Chelsea will garner lots of jury votes. While she plays cool, Sabrina is shocked that Kim is targeting her best friend because she’s popular with the castoffs. However, it does make the likeable Sabrina wonder if she’s next on the chopping block. No one is worried about the jury voting for Alicia and Christina. I have now decided I either want Chelsea or Sabrina to win. Only took me an entire season to make that wishy washy determination…
The immunity challenge is pretty intense. After untying several knotted ropes to get through a makeshift gate, each player must race along a balance beam maze, and must start back at the beginning in the event they fall. After the maze, they will traverse a giant rope net collecting bags of (what else?) puzzle pieces. The assembled puzzles will give three number clues the women must use to unlock a combination which will free their flags. Christina is the first out of the gate, followed by Kim. They are also the first to fall off to start again. Alicia finishes the maze first with Chelsea right on her heels. Chelsea is the first to collect her bags, but everyone is neck and neck on the puzzle. Sabrina falls behind, but Kim and Chelsea are neck and neck. Kim assembles her puzzle first, followed by Alicia. Kim can’t get her combination right, and after multiple tries, she returns to the puzzle. Alicia follows suit. Kim, Chelsea, and Alicia are all up working on their combinations at the same time, and Kim finally gets it right, winning immunity.
Wow, wow, and wow. I didn’t think it would happen, but it looks like all the discord with Basketball Wives may be coming to a head. There is a petition circulating to have the show taken off the air, and there is rarely an episode that doesn’t end in a violent smack down. Bullying abounds. The women act like fools while preaching to their “friends” how they take the high road. Y’all know…you’ve seen it! Well, in a recent interview with TheDailyBeast.com, Tanya Young Williams of Basketball Wives:LA, shares her experience on the show…which she describes as hellish. While she says she’s never watched the original ladies of Miami, she reveals that her time working for Shed Media was horrific. Highlights of that interview are below, but you can read the whole thing here.
Rosie Pope, star of Bravo’s surprisingly dishy hit Pregnant In Heels welcomed her daughter into the world yesterday on Mother’s Day! Vivienne Madison Pope was born May 13 at 12:40 p.m. Rosie and her husband Daron also have two sons, J.R., 3 and Wellington, 15 months; this is the first girl for the family.
Rosie Live-Tweeted throughout her delivery, which is way more than I could’ve accomplished during birth, but I guess she is an expert! “Our healthy and beautiful baby girl weighs 7 pounds, 9 ounces,” Rosie shared with Life & Style. “Daron and I are doing well and so in love with her, as are her older brothers and our extended family.”
Congratulations to Rosie and her family on their new addition!
The new season of Pregnant In Heels premieres May 15th at 10/9c on Bravo. A preview is below! I have to admit, I’m excited for the new season!

Last week Melissa and Joe Gorga put their custom-built NJ home on the market for $3.8M, Melissa took to twitter to explain that the couple wants to relocate to nearby Franklin Lakes and that building their new dream home will be part of next season’s storyline (so is that confirmation that she’s coming back?). Melissa also said they would not start construction on the new home until the old one has sold.
Melissa and Joe also listed their Jersey Shore home for sale. This led many to wonder if the Real Housewives of New Jerseystars were having financial difficulty! Well, according to RadarOnline the PDA-laden couple is flat-out broke! “Melissa and Joe are in way over their heads. Joe owes a lot of people money. They have the house on the market because they can’t pay the mortgage now that the interest rate on it has exploded,” a source close to the couple reveals.
Apparently, Joe and Melissa did what many aspiring famewhores did – they exaggerated their wealth and prestige for the sake of the show. Remember, Bravo likes to promote the whole aspiration wealth thing! “They are portraying a life they that they really didn’t live prior to the show,” the source continues. “Melissa likes to drop name brands now and has become very arrogant.” Reality Tea’s own source previously revealed that Melissa has really let fame go to her head and pretends to be fabulously wealthy.
