Reality Tea

luann de lesseps

LuAnn de Lesseps is clearly not ready to be relegated to second-string 'extra' Housewife – especially after years as an 'official' Housewife. 

Months after breaking up with longtime love Jacques Azoulay, Luann has been dating, but now she's ready for a commitment again! "Maybe I need to do a dating show for myself so I can find Mr. Right," LuAnn joked to AmNY. How about asking the Millionaire Matchmaker to hook her up?

Moving on, Real Housewives of New York is promising a seriously outrageous season with galore. "I'm taking a different role," Ramona Singer insisted at the amNewYork party thrown by Sonja Morgan. Ramona said her strategy was to convince everyone to look worse and "show themselves" and by proxy she would look better. "They're even more cray cray than me," she bragged. 


Style Fashion Week 2014

Courtney Stodden hit up L.A.'s Style Fashion Week shows last night.  The girl is still struggling to find style and fashion. 

We held out hope after she recently dyed her hair dark and wore a whole outfit, even. She was looking like a cleaned up version of her former self. But, alas, she's back to the white blonde over-processed mess and shoving her too-large-for-any-body boobs into a tight dress.  We do give Courtney kudos for the dress – it's actually NOT see-through, but rather a nude colored panel under the black lace.  So, two points awarded to Courtney for that.  And the fact that it's long enough to cover her cooter for once, she gets two more points.


Kate Gosselin Jon Gosselin

I know, I know. Like you, I thought we'd (kind of) heard the last of Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Jon Gosselin and ex-wife Kate. Sure, they'd appear every once in a while with a complaint or a new haircut, but, for the most part, they had left the building.

Enter VH1's Couples Therapy. With that one reality television gem that sensationalized Jon's "journey" post-divorce, the most dysfunctional family of eight was once again thrust down our throats like a bad corn dog. I'll be honest…I'd been Team Jon because I believed he'd intentionally dropped off our radar in an effort to be a "normal, hard-working dad," but in all actuality, he's just as much a fame whore as his ridiculous ex. Thanks, TLC. That was a can of worms that should have never been opened!



The reality TV viewer numbers are in.  Real Housewives of Atlanta dropped below the four million mark for the first time since January, with 3.912 million checking out Kenya's trip to Mexico. Doesn't matter if RHOA's over or under four million, though, Atlanta rules the Real Housewives franchise. Keeping Up with the Kardashians saw a much-needed increase this week – 2.328 million watched to see Khloe file for divorce from Lamar

On Monday,  the season four finale of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills garnered 1.947 million viewers, bringing its season average to 1.826 million. Both Basketball Wives L.A. and Southern Charm lost viewers since last week – 1.658 million (down from 1.896) watched Basketball Wives L.A. and 715,000 (down from 983,000) returned to Southern Charm.

On Tuesday, despite outrage over a nastier than usual season, Dance Moms viewership is on the rise again – the return of Cathy and the Candy Apples attracted 2.192 million viewers.  Meanwhile, 2.212 million watched Nathan and Babs fight on Teen Mom 2, and 1.329 million caught the season six premiere of Real Housewives of New York. Season five of RHONY premiered to 1.66 million and averaged 1.584 million according to Bravo Ratings.


aviva drescher

So I'm really trying to make sense of Aviva Drescher. Like really. I initially thought she was a breath of fresh air on her first season of Real Housewives of New York. And then her dad arrived…as did her phobias (and no judgment on the phobias…I have my own compound of them). The next thing I knew she was slinging around the phrase "white trash" about Ramona Singer and Sonja "Sexy J" Morgan. While she wasn't quite wrong, I think you'll agree that her delivery fell very short. It was awkward. And awful. It was what reality television should be if you want to cringe a lot. 

Imagine my surprise (our collective surprise) when she arrives for her sophomore season kissing more a$$ than I ever thought possible. She hated Ramona. That's fine. Own it! But her constant "you look fabulous, can we try to be friends?" coupled with "your hair is just so white, I love it!" (as a fan of the blonde bleach, let me assure you that white hair is never a compliment unless you're a Golden Girl). Now, Aviva, who does have the luxury of knowing how the season transpires, has decided to play the victim. She's like a gargoyle…and that's not me making that comparison…it's her!  What the—?

American Humane Association Celebrates with Lisa Vanderpump

Lisa Vanderpump and Giggy kept themselves busy yesterday afternoon at SUR.  The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars co-hosted an American Humane Association cocktail party for their "Hero Dog Awards" at the restaurant. 

Lisa's hubby Ken Todd was in attendance, as was Tori Spelling's mom Candy, and even Real Housewives of Miami's Joanna Krupa.  I'd give Joanna crap for trying to cozy up to Lisa in the hopes of landing a spot on RHOBH, but she's a big animal rights supporter, so I can't give her too much hell.  She did share a smooch with a member of the Modern Family cast – see the gallery.  Sadly, no Romain Zago sighting.  What gives, Jo?

In other SUR news, Lisa's restaurant made it on OpenTable's Diners' Choice Top 100 List – "2014 Hot Spot Restaurants in America".  Congrats, Lisa!


Kim Kardashian shows off her cleavage

Kim Kardashian is desperately trying to keep up with the A-listers, and it's costing her big time! You might wonder what more Kim has to lose – she's already lost her dignity and self-respect, but now she's apparently losing all the money she earned in the process.

“That woman burns through money like no one else," a friend tells Life & Style. “She’s the rich version of living paycheck to paycheck.” Kim is dropping piles of cash on things like lavish gifts, clothing, shopping sprees, and the insanely lavish mansion she is renovating with Kanye West. The friend reveals that Kim recently spent $100,000 on a Cartier watch for Kanye.
