If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
“One of those cringe-worthy reality shows. Frankly, these people are not smart, and none had any kind of success before the reality show. This abundance of stupidity is reflected in their current evil plan to get rid of one of the cast members. They are each telling the producer that they refuse to film with Cast Member A. They hope that if no one will film with her, the producers will be forced to let her go.
Because no one at Bravo will give these ladies a muzzle or render their typing finger useless, the former BFFs are outing each other’s secrets in the most nasty, vitriolic feud ever. Celebrity Deathmatch, indeed!
Following Sunday night’s explosive episode, Teresa and Jacqueline have both written novellas in the form of Bravo blogs. Imagine if they put their creative juices and minimal brain power towards good instead of evil?
In her NINE PAGE tome, Teresa address all the elements from Sunday’s explosive fight, which apparently lasted over five hours. Thank goodness we didn’t have to review the unedited footage!
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was a knockdown, drag-out war of words. It would appear that this is the beginning of the bitter end for former besties Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita. I hate a reality TV friendship divorce – I feel like I need to have a funeral for Jacqueresa. Next week I’m so wearing black while tuning in.
Some other stuff happened like Lauren Manzo continued to complain about being fat and drinking egg whites while her parents made snippy comments about how she is fat.
So I guess Teresa and Joe Giudice are so broke they’re selling fake stories – or photos – to the tabloids (or volunteering to let the tabloids run stories about them depending on whom you ask and what week), yet they’re building a brand new carport and a garage with an inlaw apartment. Teresa wants her parents to live there. Apparently Teresa has also installed a new closet. I’m sure she cleaned out all of Italy’s marble reserve and all of JoAnn Fabrics fake gold leaf for the accents.
Remember when they were the closest of friends? I guess reality television really does change people, and that is evident when you look at the relationship between Real Housewives of New Jersey’sJacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice. Reality Tea has an exclusive source who is close with all of the ladies in the Garden State franchise. Our insider, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that with Jacq, what you see is what you get, but Teresa has allowed fame to go to her head.
The sources tells us, “Jacqueline is one of the nicest people you will ever meEt. She is a true friend and has a heart of gold. She is a sweetheart. She is 10000% real. Teresa is the exact opposite. She competes with anything breathing… Kim D. and her are not as close as you think. Kim D. uses Teresa for the exposure Teresa gives her store. Kim D. liked Melissa and even asked her to walk in her fashion show the 1st season they were on. Teresa told her to pick a side and Kim. D. picked Teresa’s side. All the ‘true’ friends Teresa ever had are no longer friends with her. Now, she claims Kim D., her makeup artist, and other random people are her best friends. Teresa only is friends with people she feels she is above or she can use.”
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above, Teresa Giudice shared a photo from dinner with former RHONJ co-star Dina Manzo: “Had dinner with @DinaManzo last night. So great to have a girls night out! Love love love her! xx The beautiful blonde on the left with me & Dina is Jackie — she’s the one who first introduced us. Love her!! xx”
Oh reality television stars… you never cease to amaze me. One of the greatest things about reality TV is scathing, over the top, out of control ridiculous cat fights, arguments, and behind the back insults. It’s what differentiates reality from reality TV. See, I would never call someone a “dumb drag queen” … but in the wilds of reality TV, anything goes!
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our favorite reality TV insults. Below is some delightful footage of our hardworking stars doing what they do best – acting nutty and getting paid to do so! Let the memories come flooding back.
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was actually a sweet storyline. Jaime Laurita got married and it was really, really beautiful. Although everyone mostly got along, there was some trouble over a tabloid article Teresa Giudicedid. Melissa Gorga also gave us a demo of her new song, which, aaaaaaahhhh… I wish I could un-hear. Ok, I admit – it was a fun dance song…
Also, Caroline Manzo has been referring to herself in third person a lot, which has me worried. Nonetheless, I think I’m going to refer to Caroline Manzo as Caroline Manzo at all times. Caroline Manzo probably doesn’t like when people do that to Caroline Manzo.
Things begin with Jacqueline Laurita and Chris discovering an oh so conveniently placed copy of In Touch Weekly which also oh so conveniently has a photo of Teresa, Gabriella (I think) and a puppy on the cover. I wonder if room service is doling these mags out – you know, leaving it in front of the door like they do USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. Frankly, it’s not a bad idea – I love tabloids.
