Everyone starts a new year with good intentions, right? Even reality stars! While I'm sure they all have a bevy of things they'd like to improve upon (one would hope!) we thought we'd give them a little help in that department. Below are some of the New Year's Resolutions we wish some of our favorite reality stars would make.
Kim Kardashian: 'Please let my mom leave me alone – I resolve to try and say no to her and stop putting all my embarrassing and indecent moments on TV. I really don't want to have to pull a baby out of my vagina on Keeping Up With The Kardashians like Kourtney did. Does being pregnant mean my child has already sold its soul to E!? I hope not. And I resolve to let being pregnant get more media coverage than that icky divorce. Hopefully my next TV wedding will be less of a mess.'
We really, really hope ol' Kimmie Kakes embraces the notion of privacy. Especially less nudie pics on Twitter and less revealing clothing. We've already seen it all, anyway. #sextape #playboy
Le sads… tonight is the last night of 2012. Aaaahhh… it's been a good year for drama but a bad year for the explosive combo of fashion and reality TV! Last week we did a list of our best dressed reality stars, so it's only fair to honor the good and the bad.
Below is our list of the number one reality television fashion offenders. Oh, the list is long, quite long but since there are only twelve months in the year we decided to do one per month.
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 of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

There seems to be nothing Bravo loves more than a pre-season casting rumor. It sets the drama in motion before cameras even start rolling. Currently in the spotlight is Real Housewives of New York!
While last season was shaky, ratings increased each week and fans started to really relate (or hate) the new additions. And despite the success, apparently Bravo execs didn't feel the reaction was good enough and they want more than luke-warm viewing.
“It's very simple: Shows like 'Housewives' are about ratings,” a network executive reveals to The Huffington Post. RHONY is "not a high-class show like 'Mad Men' that wins awards and appeals to top-notch advertisers. That’s why such a dramatic ratings drop is so devastating.”
If you're willing to sacrifice your dignity for a paycheck, Real Housewives isn't a bad gig. The first ladies of Bravo rake in big bucks to cause a ruckus and argue; in addition they get a massive platform for which to launch their products and tirelessly promote them. Of course, Bravo/NBC takes a cut of the profit but the ends justify the means, right?
RadarOnline decided to breakdown who earns what for the network. As to be expected the biggest earners are the biggest drama creators or have the most devoted fan following.
Teresa was able to renegotiate her contract and fought for a higher salary for season five, along with conditions, i.e. getting to add a friend or two to the cast. Rumor has it Teresa is by far the highest earning Jersey lady, beating out fellow veterans Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. There's also rumors that Teresa is in talks to develop a cooking-lifestyle spinoff!
2012 is rapidly, rapidly coming to an end and before the Mayan Apocalypse claims us all make sure to catch up on all your 2012 reality TV marathons. Who doesn't need a 50th viewing of the infamous "Who gon' check me, boo?" argument.
In honor of the year coming to a close let's celebrate some of the best, craziest, and most entertaining reality TV star products to hit the market this year.
We all know there's only one reason to appear on these shows right? Product hawking!
Below is Reality Tea's list of the best products of 2012:
Give me a break! I am so over fake drama in the housewives franchises! If what I'm writing is true, Pinot Singer has truly lost what tiny bit of respect I had for her. On the flip side, I think that Aviva Drescher has proven herself to be slightly cray, so she could totally be making up the secret truce that she apparently has with Ramona.
Aviva has been awfully chatty lately about her friendship with Ramona when the Bravo cameras aren't rolling for Real Housewives of New York. If you recall, the women were at an impasse at the reunion, with Ramona unable to forgive and forget being called a white trash alcoholic who enabled Sonja Morgan's bad behavior. However, if you believe what Aviva's been saying, the ladies are practically a-okay behind the scenes.
