Reality Tea

Kandi7

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker were guests on Steve Harvey’s show this afternoon and the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars dished on Mama Joyce, show storylines, and keeping it real on reality TV. 

Steve says that Kandi and Todd seem to be one of the realest reality couples. Kandi says that a lot of people worry before the new season about what they’re storyline will be, etc, but they don’t.  “We just put our life out there, we’re not secretive, we don’t try to hide things or portray ourselves a certain way.  Because I don’t think people like that anyway.  I think people relate to you more when you just give them your normal life.  We all go through the same things.” Todd says “we have real issues.”

Kim Kardashian For LOVE Magazine

Kim Kardashian has always been one for revealing details, but does she go too far in a new LOVE Magazine interview – where she also poses for a heavily photoshopped FULL FRONTAL

Proving there’s no amount of attention Kim is not above seeking (as if we didn’t know that already) the eternal Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spills all about her urination malfunctions, her favorite sexy times, how she is a boon to the economy, and reminisces about that sex tape!

Below are some juicy quotes from the article, where Kim was interviewed by model Cara Delevingne, as well as photos, and also photos of Kim trotting her favorite accessory North around! This version comes in a toddler-sized fur quote.

Lisa Vanderpump

I enjoy Lisa Vanderpump‘s blog as much as I enjoy her presence on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Every week I find myself nodding my head in agreement from beginning to end. This week was no different. Lisa shared her thoughts on the mixer drama between Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville and the uncomfortable conversation between Yolanda Foster and Brandi (the “negativity” common denominator).

About the moments immediately after Brandi left the mixer, Lisa shared, “Kyle was extremely agitated, upset, and reacting to the volatility and giving unnecessary credence to the spiteful remark made about Mauricio. I have told her and chastised her to stop even investing in the jabs Brandi takes at her marriage. They are as irrelevant as she is at this point.” (So true!) “I ignore Kyle‘s nonsensical retort towards me, when I state that I understood, as I had been a recipient of her negativity myself.”

Mob Wives Star Natalie Guercio coral dress & floral sandals

Joining a reality show is often like opening Pandora’s Box. And Natalie Guercio has learned this first hand! She hasn’t had an easy time since joining Mob Wives – she’s fought with co-stars, had her boyfriend’s face slashed, and her personal life and mothering insulted. Now Natalie admits she might be done with the show, but she does share that the show has some positives. 

One of the biggest struggles for Natalie, aside from dealing with her standoffish co-stars, was the preconceived notions people had about her, but luckily she was bolstered by hometown support. “A lot of people at home they’re happy for me, because it’s somebody from their hometown that made it on TV,” she shares.

Natalie, who moved from Philly to Staten Island to participate in Mob Wives, says even getting an apartment willing to allow filming was a challenge! “They didn’t want us there. They didn’t want the cameras there,” she recounts. “They would Google the show, they would Google me and it’s like, what the hell – it’s like a job! There’s a law in New York you can’t hold somebody accountable for their legal paying job.”

 Reality TV Gossip Brandi Glanville

Brandi Glanville. Hmmm… what to say about Brandi Glanville. Sometimes I think there’s nothing left to say, but then Brandi says more stuff, and then naturally I have to counter that.  SO – here goes another round. 

On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Brandi has found herself in the crosshairs (see what I did there – “hairs”) between Kim “Rambles” Richards, Rambles’ addiction, and Kyle Richards. It’s not a pretty place to be, but Brandi apparently relishes it. Didn’t Eileen say Brandi thrives on conflict? Sounds about right! So let’s breakdown what Brandi has to say about this week’s episode. 

First of all, Brandi calls everyone out for labeling Kim as an addict like it’s a bad thing. Has Intervention taught you people nothing?! “Addiction is not a negative label, and it’s not an insult. It’s being used by some people to label others in a negative light, which I find distasteful and shameful,” Brandi asserts.

On last night’s Little Women LA, the aftermath of Todd’s rampage unsettles the group, the ladies run a 5K for charity, Lila attempts to make amends with Terra Jole in hopes of joining the friendship circle, and Elena Gant undergoes some sketchy plastic surgery.

We pick up at Terra’s “Used Date” party which she’s throwing for Tonya Banks. The women have all brought guys they used to date and are now offering up to Tonya, but the night is overshadowed by another ex altogether. Lila, Joe’s ex girlfriend, who Terra claims is still obsessed with Joe, somehow provokes Joe to start talking enough smack to instigate Christy McGinty’s husband, Todd. Before Todd can take a swing at Joe, Traci Harrison’s husband Erik jumps on him, knocking him to the ground as the cowardly Joe backs off. Elena’s husband Preston pulls Erik off of Todd, while Joe yells at Todd about verbally attacking “a pregnant lady” (Terra) last week and now trying to attack him. Erik is going ballistic in the corner. Christy blames the entire situation on Joe being immature (yes) and little people drinking too much alcohol (maybe). Christy and Erik start screaming at each other while Joe – who’s still wearing his douchey sunglasses – calls Christy and Todd pigs, complete with “oink oink” sound effects. Wow.

Clearly, VH1 is trying to prove to us that the Mob Wives are just fun people who hate brawling and enjoy each other’s company. Sure, we’ll go with that. I don’t know how to explain last night’s episode where Renee Graziano acted (dare I say) normal, Drita D’Avanzo’s focus was on a family trip, Karen Gravano was trying to bring her immediate family together in Arizona, and Big Ang, well, Ang is always the voice of reason regardless of circumstance. Natalie Guercio is going to need to learn when to push and when to put on the brakes. At least some things never change…

We begin with Renee channeling her inner goddess with a photo shoot for her Mob Candy brand. I must say she looks fabulous. A bob is a good look for her, and she’s happy with where her friendships are at this point in her life. From Mob Candy to Lady Boss, Drita is having her weekly conversation with Lee since he refuses to be on camera. She’s thrilled her daughter is excelling at soccer given that she was a soccer star back in the day. The couple decides that a Disney trip needs to be in the works for their family…now that Lee is allowed to cross state lines. Win!
