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.
Bravo is really stepping up its game in regard to the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Straight From the A is confirming that the girl we all loved seeing grow up under the watchful eye of Cliff and Claire Huxtable is joining the cast. That’s right! Rudy HuxtableKeisha Knight Pulliam is going to be hanging with the Neenster and Krazy Kim! I have no words…it’s just so exciting! Granted, she’s not a housewife, but seriously, when has that ever been criteria to be on a housewives’ show?
Of course, while Keisha is known around the globe as lovable Rudy, she’s quite the accomplished business woman and philanthropist. She graduated from Spellman College in Atlanta and also founded Kamp Kizzy which is a summer day camp for tween and teen girls to boost their self-esteem. One may question if she’ll be tarnishing her impeccable reputation by joining a reality show (especially THIS reality show!), but I beg to differ. The stunning Keisha will do nothing but class up this franchise…mark my words!
Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding…oh oh oh ohhhh! It’s time for the much anticipated Zolciak-Biermann nuptials. Can you hear the wedding bells? They’re auto-tuned!
There is a lot of construction and place settings happening at Kendra Davis‘ abode. A trailer filled with high-end porta-potties pulls into the driveway. Kim forgoes the regular conversation with KJ, just singing to him while he’s held by an assistant and praying he won’t be fussy for her ceremony. Kroy and the couple’s officiant (and former Kroy teammate) Koy decide to imbibe a few beers. Kroy thinks this wedding is a gift from God, therefore, he isn’t the least bit nervous.
Kim wants to sent him a voice message professing her love. Kroy’s mom and sister are getting their make-up did done. His mom is trying to convince everyone about how young her skin looks. Kim’s mom enters stage wasted and finds Sheree Whitfield getting the full make-up/hair treatment. Mama Zolciak is jealous. Sheree seems to have popped some Xanax before being filmed…perhaps she’s dealing with some RHOA withdrawals.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there has been a lot of back and forth about Kim and Kroy’s living situation, which all came to a screeching halt when Kendra Davis, homeowner and landlord of Kim’s Barbie dream house, kicked the family to the curb. Where to Zolciak-Biermanns? To Big Poppa’s condo it is! Tamara Tattles has some very insightful notions as to why Kim and Co. moved back into her Atlanta townhouse, not the least of which being it seemed the only viable option. She also has some interesting (and quite probable!) views on why Kendra finally said enough is enough!
Tamara also enlightens viewers about some of the wedding hullabaloo. What I found most interesting is that, in previews, Brielle informs her mother that there are helicopters flying over the property. My first thought? Paparazzi. My second thought? This isn’t Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Why is the paparazzi going to such extremes to snap a picture of a Bravolebrity couple? According to her blog, those helicopters don’t belong to invasive tabloid photographers, but Bravo cameras which are shooting all the aerial scenes for the wedding. Oh Kim, you had me fooled!
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.
This weekend gossip around the ATL was thatKim Zolciak was spotted moving Big Poppa’s furniture out of the much gossiped about “dream home” she had been renting. It would appear that landlady Kendra Davis has come through with her plan to serve the Biermann’s with an eviction notice of some sort. Or the Biermanns decided they no longer wanted to be “squatters” and moved out!
Here’s the backstory: Kim and husband Kroy Biermann were renting the home – fully decorated by Kendra – with the intent to buy. She announced on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion that she was “closing” on the house very soon. Apparently Kendra and Kim had a falling out over Kim planning to get married on the property – and construct large venues in the backyard – without consulting Kendra. Then Kim uninvited Kendra to the wedding.
As always, the episode starts with Kim talking to precious K.J. (is he always in a skull cap?) about the big day. The last minute preparations are happening in the back yard. Brielle and Ariana bring Kim breakfast. Kim reveals that the always romantic Kroy has insisted that they don’t see each other on the day leading up to the wedding. The couple won’t be honeymooning until after football season.
Assistant SweetieNiki is now going to serve as matron of honor in place of Kim’s biffle Jen. With all the changes that must take place in order to have Niki ready for the big day, Kim enlists Brielle to call her to make sure she will still have time to fix the girls’ hair. There is one thing that isn’t causing Kim any stress, and that is Antonio Davis. Security is making sure that he isn’t allowed to set foot on his property.
Yesterday, Mrs. Kim Zolciak-Biermann had a long day of communicating with TMZ. First a source close to her told the gossip site that she was certainly NOT being evicted as previously reported. And although Kim told everyone at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion that she was “closing” on her “dream house,” she and hubby Kroy Biermann have since changed their mind, citing the $3M listing price was over-valued by a million dollars.
Kim also said her landlord/interior decorator, the formidable Kendra Davis, threatened to evict her after she walked away from the purchase deal and then Kendra started bad-mouthing her on Twitter. This was after Kim started badmouthing her on Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding (and Twitter) of course!
Now there have been many rumors about Kim‘s attempt to purchase said mansion – namely that she and Kroy couldn’t get approved for the $2.5M mortgage required to buy the property. Of course we don’t have access to Kim’s bank account, so we have no idea if that’s true, but that’s the tea that was spilled.
