The winners of Reality Tea‘s first annual Readers’ Choice Awards were announced throughout the day Friday. There were a few surprises!
I, for one, was shocked to see Teresa Giudice win favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Jill Zarin win former Real Housewives star you wish would return. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn Caroline Stanbury beat out Jim Marchese as the breakout reality TV star of 2014.
In case you missed a few (or all) of the winner announcements, check out the complete winners list below. You can click on each category to see the runners up. Don’t forget to cast your vote in the final poll, Favorite Real Housewife of 2014. Thank you for your participation. We hope you enjoyed it.
Last night NeNe Leakes ended her run in Broadway’s Cinderella, as the show officially closed.
NeNe did an emotional farewell bow as she wrapped her performance as Madame. “MY FINAL BOW: What a bitter sweet moment it was! I will be forever grateful for such an amazing opportunity!” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star wrote.
In the audience to watch NeNe’s final performance was her husband Gregg, and both her sons Brentt and Bryson. “As I took my final bow, my amazing hubby, children, friends and family cheered me on as they knew the journey, the hard work, and tenacity it took for me to get here,” NeNe shared.
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 daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
“I think it was a great move on NeNe’s part to get everyone at the table to lay a foundation for a more peaceful existence. There was a lot of emotion and even more history sitting at that table, and it’s going to take a lot of work on everyone’s part to get along,” Phaedra says.
“Whenever there are conflicts like this, I think it is important for each person to recognize what the others are and are not capable of,” Phaedra continues. “If you understand a person’s limitations, and adjust your expectations accordingly, there is a much greater chance of success.”
The polls are closed and the votes are tallied in our First Annual Reality Tea Readers’ Choice Awards! Stay tuned today as we unveil the winners for each of the categories you voted in over the past two weeks. Some of the results might really surprise you!
NeNe won the award with just under 30% of the votes! One of the most popular write-in votes was for former RHOA star Kim Zolciak. Other notable write-ins: Phaedra’s kids, Miss Sharon, and Miss Lawrence.

Kenya chooses to not use Porsha’s name in her blog this week, referring to her as NeNe’s new BFF instead. “Although NeNe has barely spoken to me this season, I wasn’t surprised to learn that she invited her new BFF to drinks. I also wasn’t shocked to see that despite it all, she still refuses to apologize for her violent actions. This is after NeNe, Phaedra, and Andy (to name a few) have all suggested she do so.”
Oh Real Housewives Of Atlanta – for all their ‘hate is real’ when it comes right down to it these ladies know how to have a good time! And laughter is the best medicine, as they say.
NeNe Leakes put on her lace football jersey and strategized about how she could re-unifiy this group, so she invited Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams for drinks to help them make amends. But the Hail Mary pass came when she sneak-invited Kenya Moore by telling Cynthia to “bring her girl.”
NeNe didn’t tell Porsha until she was seated at the bar, drink in hand, expecting a good old-fashioned keke about how NeNe should stop wearing denim short-shorts and Cynthia should watch those RHOA flashback scenes with woe because her fashions have gone as downhill as her finances!
