Brandi Glanville

Lisa Vanderpump

This season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills had everyone wondering: “Who’s The Most Manipulative Of Them All?” And you may ask yourself, is it really Lisa Vanderpump? And you may ask yourself, what about some of the others?

After an entire season speculating about how manipulative Lisa could possibly be, we decided to examine other drastic moments of manipulation littering the history of Reality TV.  

Below is Reality Tea’s list of some of our favorite examples of manipulation on reality TV!

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Secrets Revealed was all about friendships, fun, swans, and family – you know, none of the stuff the actual season focused on.

At Villa Rosa the swans are primed for attack by the Most Wanted posters hung in the pond, and the mini horses are being tailed by Rumpy Pumpy who just can’t figure out what to do with these odd creatures, but Lisa Vanderpump knows that if she had to choose between Ken and the horses, Ken would be joining David Foster in Casa de Divorce. #LifeWithoutLyme

Just kidding! Ken is well-aware Lisa would never leave him – although he’s decided to pretend-adore mini horses just in case! After Ken brushes and grooms a mini horse, he trots over to Dr. Ourian’s office so Lisa can get her skin examined for melanoma. Or so Ken thinks… the real plan is to trick Ken into getting Botox!


Brandi Glanville and LeAnn RImes ex Dean

Is Brandi Glanville pulling a page from the Blac Chyna revenge handbook? The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star just posted a photo with Dean Sheremet – as in her ex husband Eddie Cibrian‘s current wife LeAnn Rimes‘s ex husband. It sounds a lot more confusing than it is, but it is still really weird. Nevertheless, I guess it is possible that they got together for an Eddie and LeAnn hate fest. (Although she’s claiming to be on good terms with LeAnn these days)

As believable as that is, these two are actually working together on a new reality show. This doesn’t shock me too much since I feel like I’m always reading about Brandi joining new reality shows, but I am just so confused by what kind of show she would be doing with LeAnn‘s ex husband. They are not a couple, are they? 


Reality TV Stars Kyle Richards

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna shared, “I woke up to this on my text messages. Kyle Richards I will get you back. Just when you least expect it. Game on.”

Below you will find photos from Kenya Moore, Courtney Stodden, Adam Levine, Kathryn Edwards, Ramona Singer, Charrisse Jordan, and more.

TGIF, reality fans! We’ve got a quickie fresh photos Friday roundup for you! Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky enjoyed a little time together at the Ninth Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic Dinner. Kyle had a fashion “hit” with this floral dress, in my opinion! Not 100% sure I love the shoe choice, but overall she looks great. 

Also looking good this week: Brandi Glanville. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star stepped out for the Associates For Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies’ annual Mother’s Day Luncheon at Four Seasons Hotel with her former co-star Carlton Gebbia and her (stunning) daughters. Brandi toned down the makeup and it made a world of difference.

Also spotted out and about this week: Kylie Jenner attending a MET ball after party, Kourtney Kardashian vacationing in Miami and more!


I don’t know if I would continue watching a reality show if I was a former cast member, but it is very clear that Brandi Glanville is still tuning in to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Aside from making her pre-taped cameo appearance during part three of the reunion, Brandi decided to share her thoughts on this season via Twitter. 

Whether you are a Brandi fan or not, you have to admit that she’s never boring. If you are an avid Real Housewives viewer, it is definitely worth following her, especially after the final reunion episode aired. Brandi seriously went off. She tweeted Lisa Vanderpump‘s story about domestic violence, questioned LVP’s friendship with Kyle Richards, and refused to issue any apologies.


Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion

The final part of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion was all about owning the undefinable IT – what that “IT” is, we’re not sure. Lisa Vanderpump was owning no part in offending anyone, or the chicanery behind manipulating others into questioning Yolanda Foster‘s Lyme Disease. Other than Kyle Richards, the only person Lisa deemed worthy was Ken, who, despite pissing all the women off, made no appearance last night. Ken was too busy relaxing in the Villa Rosa gardens amid the splendor of mini horses and Pomeranians. Or, who knows, maybe he was doing gourmet Jello Shots with Mohamed and David! #LifeWithoutLyme

We begin with Lisa explaining why she didn’t open up about her past abuse when Eileen Davidson shared hers. Lisa didn’t feel comfortable sharing in front of Ken. Which seems to be a problem; since season 3 Ken has made a habit of attending events with Lisa, acting as a guard dog between her and the other women. It’s a bit silly, and, as Eileen tried to point out (in between Yolanda constantly interrupting), this wall Lisa has up – physically and metaphorically – prevents her from bonding and forming true friendships with the women.


The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 6

I don’t know what I would do if it wasn’t for the Real Housewives franchise. I have watched every episode of every season in every city multiple times, no matter how I feel about the content. With that said, this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has definitely been its worst – by far. As much as I love these ladies, there are so many reasons why Season 6 of RHOBH has been its worst. No matter how much I stan for this show, I cannot deny this. And I’m sure that I’m not the only one wishing for a redo on this one.

Typically, RHOBH is chock full of story lines, but this season just dragged on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I still watched every episode a million times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I usually do. And this is something that made me sad. Hopefully someone at Bravo who has some power is reading this right now and will do what they can to avoid these same mistakes next season.
