Reality Tea

Fredrik Eklund In Greece!

Is this Million Dollar Listing New York or Million Dollar Listing Athens? Not that I’m complaining about the possibility of seeing fabulous international real estate! 

Ryan Serhant is currently in Greece planning his wedding to Emilia Bechrakis. But in an interesting twist Fredrik Eklund is also in Greece with his husband Derek Kaplan … and Derek’s son!

I can’t believe I’m about to admit any of this, but here it goes. Because Bethenny Frankel has always been such a polarizing force in Bravoland, I’ve always tiptoed around her in my posts, claiming I was lukewarm, citing I had no real opinion of her one way or another. I neither loved her nor loathed her, and I was lying. Please accept my sincere apology. You see, when I had to recap Bethenny Ever After and write on that custody case a hundred times, she grated on my last nerve. Just thinking about the sound of her voice gave me a headache. I purposely didn’t try anything SkinnyGirl just to spite her (I’m sure she felt the sting!). I just pretended to be neutral, but the truth is, I didn’t like her (as much as you can dislike a stranger).

When she was added to this season’s Real Housewives of New York line-up, I rolled my eyes so far back in my head, it’s a wonder they didn’t get stuck. My friends and I would chat after each episode…is she going to keep being so defensive and rude and loud and then turn around and start crying? Who talks to others like that? What’s her deal? And then something happened. Maybe it was her friendship with Carole Radziwell. Maybe it was because she chilled out a little. Maybe it was her innate ability to go off on Ramona Singer and have everything be fine ten minutes later. I can’t pinpoint when or what, but Bethenny grew on me. Dare I say I enjoyed her the second half of the season?

Kim Zolciak - Don't Be Tardy Season 4

Kim Zolciak went from Real Housewife to actual real-life Housewife and she also went from Real Housewives Of Atlanta star to having her own spinoff as a mom of six, married to NFL player Kroy Biermann.

Don’t Be Tardy is returning for its fourth season and Wigs N Cigs is dishing all about how her life (and her kids’ lives) have changed since reality TV, what fame really means, and her rules for marriage in the public eye, and why she refuses to let internet haters affect her. 

“I always wanted to be famous – my whole life,” admits Kim. “You can look at the journal I wrote at aged twelve where I said I can’t wait to have my own show by the time I’m 30. I was 29 when I started on Housewives.” But is it all that she envisioned? On fame, Kim says, “A lot of people want it but they don’t realize what comes with it. Your whole life is scrutinized.”

 Gold Digging Vs. 9 To 5

Like many Real Housewives of Orange County viewers, the OG of the OC is totally over Meghan EdmondsVicki Gunvalson shared in a set of Tweets this week that she is out for blood, wanting Meghan fired.  She also addresses the accusations that Brooks Ayers is faking cancer.

Vicki doesn’t spend a lot of time on social media, but she took a few moments to address questions and comments from followers this week.  When a show fan asked Vicki how she could be with Brooks “knowing” that he’s faking cancer, Vicki lashed back.  “HE is NOT faking cancer….it’s a fake story that the girls made up. I have lost 3 friends to cancer and my Aunt. It’s a TV show.” 

2015 BET Awards - Debra Lee Pre-Dinner

Perennially struggling business owner Peter Thomas has been hit with yet another eviction notice for non-payment. After moving Bar One in the wake of financial issues and delaying the reopening indefinitely, Peter and his business partner/wife Cynthia Bailey are already behind on rent!

Court documents seeking to evict Peter and Cynthia’s Bar One demonstrate that the Real Housewives Of Atlanta couple owed $1869 for back rent and fines on the Auburn Avenue location. Bar One Atlanta moved locations last year and has been promising a reopening since January 2015 – but in fact the bar has never actually opened its doors! Instead Cynthia and Peter have just been renting the space while ostensibly renovating and apparently they’re running out of money.

The ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (and former OC cast member Gretchen Rossi) turned out to support co-star Lisa Vanderpump at a luncheon she hosted to benefit the American Humane Association and Vanderpump Pets. 

Among the attendees: Lisa’s hubby Ken Todd, who posed on the red carpet with Giggy and Giggy’s dad.  Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna and new cast member Erika Jayne skipped the red carpet arrivals, but Camille Grammer was on it, along with Lance Bass and husband MichaelGretchen shared the photo above of the ladies behind the scenes.

Lizzie-Rovsek-Real-Housewives-of-Orange-County

Remember that time the ladies of the OC went on vacation together and it actually ended on a positive? Of course you do…it was this week’s installment! Sure there was drama when the Real Housewives of Orange County invaded Mo’orea, but it didn’t end with a screeching Tamra Judge promising never to return. Hasty words, I guess. Despite the constant tension between Shannon Beador and Meghan Edmonds (or Meghan KING Edmonds, as Shannon calls her…like she’s disciplining a child who has done something bad enough to warrant the dreaded three names), their last supper ended with laughter instead of screaming. 

The women had some fun along the way, as well, with Heather Dubrow leading the charge to ignore comfort zones and keep things light. Lizzie Rovsek hasn’t quite recovered from the insanity of last year’s girls’ trip, so she tried to stay in the background and out of the squabbles. She keeps a surprisingly level head when rehashing Sunday’s show.
