Heather Bilyeu never dreamed that when she agreed to film for Million Dollar Listing: LA as Madison’s assistant so so much of her life would change. Yesterday Reality Tea had the opportunity to speak with Heather about how she found herself on Bravo, what the show has meant for her career and as well as her personal life, and her craziest experiences in real estate. Heather also opened up about her relationship with fiancé Josh Altman, and her passion for rescue dogs.
Heather had absolutely no intention of being on TV and was even shy about listing to her own voicemail messages! “I definitely didn’t want to do it at first, but I’m so happy I did,” she reflects. “I have no regrets.”
“When I first started working for Madison he was on the show, but he wasn’t aware that he was getting picked up for another season. When I interviewed with him he said, ‘Don’t worry – you won’t need to be on the show.'” Heather says producers really enjoyed the “synergy” she and Madison had and encouraged her to film with him. “I was very reluctant,” she admits. “I had to push myself.”
“It’s really been amazing for me,” Heather shares. “I’ve discovered so much about myself and it’s been great for my business and I found my soon-to-be-husband.”
On the season premiere, Simone and Toya picked up right where they left off (see the clip below), screaming and threatening.
Simone admitted in her blog that she’s still not over the reunion confrontation with Toya, adding, “I love a good debate and talking trash, but I don’t believe in physical violence against anyone. And when you top it off by lying about your intent to do bodily harm, I get even more angry and resentful. Forgiveness has never been my strong suit. I am truly sorry you have to see me snapping off on Toya. Unfortunately she has what it takes to push my wrong buttons! Sometimes, I imagine myself as Cookie, but then I quickly realize that I am not.”
Bravo‘s new reality series Mother Funders premieres this Sunday. The cast of PTO moms includes LaShon Thompson, Shana Koorse, Shayzon Prince, Carla Stephens, Robin Dyke, Amber Bryant, and Amber Coulter.
Bravo shares: “Mother Funders is a comedic docu-series which takes a look inside the triumphs and trials of one very special Parent Teacher Organization board in Locust Grove, Georgia, led by super mom and president, Carla. With Carla’s goal to raise as much money as she can for the town’s elementary school, it’s a strict regimen of reading, writing, and arithmetic to raise the most funds for the local elementary school. The only way of reaching her goal is to keep the momentum going and get her fellow board members to plan, execute, and implement extravagant fundraising events which will rake in the cash – but ruffle some feathers along the way.”
I’m sold. I haven’t been this excited about a new Bravo show since Ladies of London. As a PTO mom myself (haha! don’t judge me!), I am intrigued, and I also hope Mother Funders is a suitable replacement for Lifetime’s now- canceled Pretty Wicked Moms, which I loved. Take a look below to meet the cast and watch an exclusive clip from Mother Funders‘ first episode.
Adriana described the ups and downs in her relationship with Joanna Krupa and just what exactly happened between her and Lea Black. She also discussed some of the things viewers don't know about her and talked season 4 – if there is one!
Describing the reunion as "emotionally draining and explosive," Adriana says many of the conflicts are "bound to happen."
Do you have any regrets?
"Not really. I regret the downfall of my friendship with Lea because she's so unflexible and unsympathetic. I regret the fact that our boys aren't as close they used to be."
While hosting The Abbey's 8th Annual Christmas in September Charity Event, "Klassless Kyle" turned her wrath towards Lisa's friend Daniel DiCriscio. You may remember him as a former friend of Faye's, who sold him out once she thought she hit the big leagues interior decorating Paris Hilton's pad (which if you've seen The Bling Ring is nothing to brag about from a design standpoint).
Daniel was a guest at the event, invited presumably by Kyle, which he quickly realized was a set-up for the hair-whipping, high-kicking, splits wielding Kyle to scream at him about how much Lisa sucks and accuse of him of trying to ruin her reputation and Faye's. Lovely. Last year the two had issues at an after party for Lisa's appearance on Dancing With The Stars.
I just don't know what to think about Real Housewives of New Jersey. I always have such hope! Despite an entire season of therapy and what seemed like true reconciliation, the Giudice and the Gorga families are right back where they started.
At last night's reunion it was revealed that the families didn't see each other all summer. Reality Tea's source gives us an exclusive on what's happened since the reunion taped and where the families stand.
This weekend Teresa Giudice's daughter Gabriella celebrated her 9th birthday and while Melissa Gorga attended, Reality Tea's source reveals that Joe Gorga did not! "Of course, Teresa was upset. Melissa did attend, Gabriella is her godchild." Above is the entire family at the party, Poison isn't there!
Yesterday night Melissa Gorga was on WWHL. There she was cross-examined about the myriad of rumors that are her life. They don't call it six degrees of Melissa Gorga for nothing!
Among the allegations Melissa has been hit with on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a cheating scandal concerning her ex-boyfriend Bryan. A few episodes back Melissa's former BFFL Jan met up with Kim D where she dropped a salacious bomb about what Melissa was doing early in her marriage to Poison. Here's a hint: she wasn't doing Poison!
Melissa denied it of course, and blamed Teresa Giudice for spreading rumors. Last night she denied it again and accused Jan of being after camera time. Aren't they all!
Our source chimed in to allege that Melissa is telling tall tales and Teresa is definitely not out to get her!

Teresa Giudice is in big trouble! And not the kind of generic fodder for tabloids that usually erupts on reality TV shows.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has just been federally indicted on 39-counts of financial fraud along with her husband Joe Giudice. Teresa and Joe both plan to plead Not Guilty and it's clear Teresa is going to try and dumb her way out of this because she has a lot to lose in going to prison. Hey, Martha Stewart's career survived, maybe Teresa's can as well?
Reality Tea's source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that while Teresa is putting on a tough exterior, reality is for real hitting home for the Giudices and things are a mess!
"Teresa and Joe are a nervous wreck," our source reveals. "Joe's parents went to court with him and Teresa today. Things are bad."
