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 makes her fans happy at a book signing event, “@Teresa_Giudice was super sweet! So happy @naomilaurenshif & I got to meet her”.
One of our readers (not the twitter photo above) shared with us last week that she attended one of Teresa’s signings and was blown away by her behavior – in a good way. You never know what you’re going to get when you meet a celebrity in real life, so it’s nice to hear positive stories! Keaira shared:
I attended one Saturday in Orlando. The line was wrapped around book shelves up and downstairs. There was a ton of people! She arrived about twenty minutes early, which was amazing and got started immediately. The crowd went crazy when she walked in. I would say that I was about 100 people back when she arrived and it took TWO hours to get to her table. This was because she allowed people to have long conversations with her and she even let people call others on their phones and she would talk to them. When I finally got to the table I was really nervous so I didn’t say much to her. She was so sweet! She signed her book and allowed me to take pictures on different phones. She was so patient (almost too patient). Like I said, I waited for two hours and when I left there was still a line that went all the way down stairs and people were still coming in. It was totally worth the wait!
New job, same problems! I can see that Jill Zarin has definitely turned over a new leaf – and is taking her professionalism to her next gig! On her very first day hosting a segment for GMA spinoff, Good Afternoon American, Jill chose to make it nasty and personal by taking a dig at Ramona Singer.
Now a bigger person than I might tsk tsk and claim Jill is still vengeful over her firing and needs to let it go, but I LOVE the drama and I think it’s hilarious that Jill has not changed one bit. Don’t you ever Jill – we like you just the way you are; crazy, venomous, and a total instigator!
“We’ve always had this kind of awkward relationship, embarrassing relationship, really,” Jill said of her former Real Housewives of New York nemesis. “So I kind of like watching her squirm a little bit this season.”
Both ladies – and their fashionably challenged selves – were spotted at Talent Resources’ Charity Polo Classic. Strangely, Dina Manzo also attended. “Earlier today at a polo match and ran into Dina Manzo,” Ramona tweeted, adding a photo of the two.
In other news, Ramona’s feud with Jill Zarin continues. Ramona is still upset about comments Jill made last season hinting that Mario may be unfaithful! Ramona claims the two exchanged words off camera over the incident, but she’s still not over it – despite Jill’s apology!
Say what?! Andy uses graphs and charts to cast the crazy?! According to a new interview with AdAge, Andy credited research for the reasoning behind the firings. “We snort up research like fine Colombian cocaine,” he admitted of the Bravomeisters approach to determining what viewers want.
“I love Twitter because it’s a live focus group,” said Andy, explaining that one reason certain cast members of RHONY were let go was because of negative feedback about them on social media.
Bravo released a statement to PEOPLE announcing that Jill isn’t going to be gracing our screens as a Housewife anytime soon. “We wish Jill the best, but there is no consideration of her returning to the series,” a Bravo spokesperson remarked.
Well there you have it! Next!
ARE YOU HAPPY OR SAD THAT JILL WON’T BE RETURNING TO RHONY?
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.
