Ok, it’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we reviewed Teresa Giudice‘s third cookbook, Fabulicious: Fast & Fit and her Fabellini Cocktail. While the recipes and igredences in the cookbook were pretty good, the cocktail had me reminiscing about college memories slurping up the Boone’s Farm in a frat house. I was a classy girl, alright.
This month we’re honoring the OG of the Housewives franchises, Vicki Gunvalson and taking a look-see through her self-help/memoir More Than A Housewife: Talent! Purpose! Direction! Drive! Yep, that’s the title in its entirety. The Real Housewives of Orange County star wants you to know that you too can be an insurance megastar (and meet a winner like Brooks Ayers at conventions! Enticing, no?) if only you learn from her experiences.
I was hoping for some killer throwback photos of Vicki and co. in the good old days, but yeah there were none. We also reviewed the offerings of Wines By Wives. Now there’s nothing I love more than a bottle of red, but a memoir sans childhood photos? Not so much!

Well… that was shocking wasn’t it? This Friday evening “20/20″ bestowed upon Brooks Ayers the honor of giving him his own segment on the popular news show. Even Slave Smiley hasn’t been that lucky!
Yep, in front of the whole nation, on a nationally syndicated immensely popular news show, Brooks was outed as a deadbeat dad by his ex-girlfriend NicoletteCatanzarite. How’d you like them apples? Or oranges, if you will. I say Karma is a bitch, and I love her for it!
I’m sure Bravo is beside themselves with glee over the news that Real Houewives of Orange County‘s stellar reputation has been besmirched by the allegations – and I am most positiveVicki Gunvalson‘s obsessive love for con-man Brooks will suddenly wilt. In fact I anticipate that very soon she’ll be issuing a statement about how they’ve grown apart, but she wishes him nothing but love.
And whaddya wanna bet Vicki‘s friendship with Tamra Barney will be rekindled, with a statement about how Tamra was good friend, just looking out for her.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver and Dancing with the Stars winner Donald Driver, was in Las Vegas this weekend for his Donald Driver Tenth Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament. Donald celebrated with dinner at the new Mizumi at Wynn Las Vegas and then moved the party to Surrender Nightclub inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
Jim Bellino is nobody’s fool. Wait… what did I just write?! Anyway, he wears the big boy pants – and he wants Bravo to know it! The most detested of the Real Housewives of Orange County husbands is setting the record straight on Tuesday’s season finale party – and apparently not only did Terry Dubrow invite him to the party; Jim has the texts to prove it. Danggit Jim, don’t you go making me like you now!
In addition to Jim calling Terry out, Alexis Bellino is taking Queen Chesire CatHeather Dubrow and her fellow Housewives to task for pretending thatSarah Winchester, cake destroyer extraordinaire, was an uninvited guest. Like, duh, Sarah was, like, so for real invited by Bravo. I bet they even told her to wear that $3 Pretty Woman reject hooker dress!
Oh, Vicki Gunvalson… we all know the truth. After you were forced to return your rent-a-mink (for which your deposit was surely lost following the pit-stains and odor of BO) you are now denouncing fur! Suuuurrrrre… a likely story.
“The world has changed and I must change as well. Fur, while it was never something I needed or specifically wanted, it was in my mindset as something glamorous and a sign of success for a woman,” Vicki mused in her Bravo blog.
Of course, now that the Real Housewives of Orange County star realized the fur she loved was only her’s for an evening, she is claiming that she covets fur no more! And she’s giving PETA all the credit for her epiphany! “That is absolutely no longer the case. When PETA sent me video footage of investigations on fur farms, I was horrified by the cruelty involved,” she claims.
In her Bravo blog, Vicki compares Tamra to Jeana Keough, writing, “I…believe Tamra should not have chosenHeather [Dubrow]‘s party to replay her drama with the wine episode with Jeana. Remember why Tamra was mad at Jeana last year? To refresh your memory, it was because Jeana was getting involved in Tamra and Simon’s marriage and “butting in.” Hmmm. . .isn’t that what she has been doing with Brooks and I?”
