Real Housewives of New York Ramona

Oh, Ramona. Only you could break down the latest drama from the Real Housewives of New York City by skipping over some juicy tidbits and instead whining about your beautiful cabin and criticizing Kristen Taekman for her hosting — or lack there of — duties.

The original New York Housewife is full of opinions about what went down when the ladies visited Montana. And based on the readability and the amount misspelled words, I can only assume this was after a bottle of Ramona Pinot Grigio. (Editor's note: I cleaned up Ramona's blog a bit, just an fyi so you don't think Suzy's wrong about there being errors.)

Lilly Ghalichi

Lilly Ghalichi has really grown on us here at Reality Tea. When she first hit the reality TV scene, we were turned off by her over-the-top hair and makeup, foot-in-mouth mishaps, and self-obsessed ways. However, sometime during season three, our opinion of Lilly changed. We began to see those things we didn't like about her in a different light. 

Foot-in-mouth mishaps? Yes, but she seems like a good person, which is way more than we can say about most of her Shahs of Sunset co-stars. Over-the-top and self-obsessed? Well, she's definitely a girly girl, but she owns it.

Four things Lilly loves more than life itself are her family, Coconut, her fiance, and her Ghalichi Glam style. I'm quite smitten with Coconut myself. As for her style, Lilly knows what she likes, isn't afraid to flaunt it, and refuses to apologize for it. I will take that over the fake and pretentious that is Asa Soltan Rahmati any day of the week. Persian Pop Priestess? Um, Pass!

2013 Billboard Music Awards

Chris Brown may be able to capitalize on all of his recent legal issues. At least if BET has anything to say about it. TMZ is reporting that BET has been taking meetings with several production companies and they want to make one thing clear.

If the companies can shoot footage to cover Brown's life after his recent stint in jail, BET will absolutely put it on the air.

Giuliana Rancic

Another day another dollar for Giuliana Rancic. Not only is she our (sometimes) favorite E! News personality with a brand spankin' new contract through 2016. She and her husband, Bill Rancic and son Duke, also star in their own hit reality show, Giuliana & Bill. And did I mention she has a popular clothing line on HSN??

Well apparently that is not enough green for G! Crazy Days and Nights is reporting that Giuliana rakes in some major bones in a not-so-typical way.

kandi celebrates her bachelorette party

There isn't much to report on this week's reality TV viewer numbers. The shows either remained steady or gained a handful of viewers – no big losses, which is good, because most of these shows can't afford to lose any fans. On Sunday, Kandi's Wedding saw a season high with 2.557 million tuning in to see Kandi's bachelorette party, and Married to Medicine garnered 1.706 million viewers.

Also, a double dose of Sister Wives averaged 1.5 million fans, and a crap-filled episode (literally and figuratively) of Keeping Up with the Kardashians managed 2.194 million viewers.

On Monday, a hat party on Ladies of London attracted 758,000 viewers, and 1.864 million watched Shannon grill Heather on Real Housewives of Orange County. As always, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta ruled the night, with 3.832 million tuning in to see Benzino learn of his mother's passing. On Tuesday, 1.268 million fans sat through non-stop whining on Real Housewives of New York.

Chris And Jacqueline Laurita: New Movement In Signature Apparel Bankruptcy Case

It's mind-boggling that it has been almost five years since Signature Apparel Group filed for bankruptcy!  The company, owned by former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Chris Laurita and his brother Joseph filed for bankruptcy in late 2009, despite having record income of $250 million during the years of 2005-2009.  The bankruptcy has been held up by a number of a issues, namely the accusation that the Lauritas frivolously spent eight million dollars for personal use. 

According to the complaint at the time, Chris and Joseph were accused of "draining the company of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations,” the complaint filed November 2, 2010 alleged. “Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.”

Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson 2014 Bravo Upfronts

Vicki Gunvalson is seeming saner this season – and strangely (and scarily) emerging as somewhat of a voice of reason amid a turbulent season of Real Housewives of Orange County. 

With co-stars turning on each other left and right, and friends quickly becoming enemies, Vicki has stayed above the fray and for the most part out of the drama! After learning of Shannon Beador's marital issues, and that an extremely personal email between Shannon and her husband David became the subject of gossip, Vicki shares that her heart goes to Shannon – and that she is disappointed in both Heather Dubrow and Tamra Barney. Vicki, are you feeling OK?

"It was sad for me to see Shannon, who I care about so much, be in such a vulnerable and sad place in her life this episode," Vicki writes in her Bravo blog. "Shannon learned the hard way — that by sharing that intimate email with Tamra she had no idea what would happen from there."

miami blue dress Samantha DeBianchi

Sam DeBianchi is the first woman to ever join the ranks of the Million Dollar Listing franchise. Breaking into the boys league on Million Dollar Listing Miami, Sam shares her experiences joining the cast and doing reality TV in general. 

Sam admits that she had always hoped that she would find her way to reality TV (of course) as her ambitions have already led her to be a real estate commentator on Fox News. However, she was still surprised when Bravo came a'callin! “They essentially sought after the top agents. I was one of them and now I am here. They were also looking for something different,” Sam says. 

"I have been a fan of the show since Day 1," Sam admits to The Wrap. "I loved it and I'm obsessed with the show. I think it is awesome. Its funny, but you also see deals."
