Reality Tea

Lala Kent

You don’t know what you got until it’s gone. Is there a better sentiment to capture how we are all feeling about Vanderpump Rules? The recently announced filming and cast overhaul (following several problematic behaviors) didn’t spark the joy Bravo had probably hoped for. Fans recently took to Bravo’s Instagram in protest of some teasers. Meanwhile, the remaining cast has quite literally reduced themselves to tooth-brush-in-butthole gimmicks. How did we get here?
When it first aired, VPR was a hit immediately. The show picked up steam around the era Lala Kent joined the cast and wildly mixed things up. Lauren from Utah was flirting with Jax Taylor back then. Now she’s having children with Randall Emmett and writing memoirs. It’s been a whirlwind.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kenya Moore Marlo Hampton

The current season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has, somehow, has made the longtime feud between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore even worse. And Marlo Hampton is dead in the middle, and that’s a very tough place to be. Part Two of the RHOA reunion was filled with even more back and forth between Marlo and Porsha, with P’s lapdog partner-in-crime Shamea Morton right by her side. Shamea has her own issues with MVP Marlo, so it’s obvious she was at the reunion to help Porsha pile on the attacks.

It’s safe to say that Marlo and P’s friendship is over for good. After the lipo accusations, name-calling and low-blows, it just seems like these two need a break from one another. And even though Marlo is keeping Twirl at arm’s length, she was a little guilty of helping her egg on Kenya’s major investigation of who slept with Bolo at Cynthia Bailey’s bachelorette party.

Meghan

You guys know that I love Meghan King Edmonds. She hasn’t been on Real Housewives of Orange County in years but for some reason, I just can’t let go.

While she’s kept busy with her messy divorce, finding love, un-finding love, then re-finding love (yes, I know those aren’t real words but roll with me here), I still think that Meghan isn’t too busy to come back to RHOC. Even if you don’t like her, you have to admit that she brought something to the table. And getting under Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson’s skin was probably my favorite part about her time on the show.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

The Real Housewives of New York are back and the world feels right again. The premiere gave us everything we love about the girls. Sonja Morgan talked to her intern about her vagina. Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer giggled about Lu living near Tom D’agostino. Leah McSweeney clowned Ramona’s Instagram posts. And Eboni K. Williams made her break-out debut as RHONY’s first Black cast member. A new era has begun, and it looks like it’ll be a wild ride. 

We know there is bound to be some incoming drama between Leah and Holla Heather Thomson. In the trailer, Leah is screaming at Mama H, calling her a Karen. They’ve gone back and forth ahead of the RHONY premiere, with Leah accusing Heather of slut-shaming and Heather saying she was “assaulted” by the “Queen Bee” of RHONY. To be fair, Leah’s still a rookie, not exactly Queen material.

Marlo Hampton Real Housewives Of Atlanta

Real Housewives of Atlanta had an… interesting season. It’s difficult to sum up, but if you enjoy exotic dancers wearing fake Chanel crime tape, then I guess you had a great time. New cast member Drew Sidora came on the scene and it might be fair to say she watched every single episode available of RHOA prior to her debut. But don’t forget Drew is a master thespian and can assume any personality she wants to portray, thanks to her amazing acting skills.

Drew and husband Ralph Pittman had quite a storyline. Ralph likes to play music and take long drives. Like really long drives – all the way to Florida long. And it was one of Ralph’s road trips that got him in hot water. Thank goodness he had solid evidence in the form of financial receipts to confirm his innocence. In the event you are one of the fans maintaining a healthy side-eye at ‘ol Ralph, then save a seat for Marlo Hampton because she is on your team.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: What Ever Happened To Old School Italian Loyalty?

Patterson Dolores FINALLY came out on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Dolores Catania finally hit her breaking point with everyone questioning her relationship with David Principe. Everyone gossiping about whether or not David gave her a new car to stall for a ring was so disrespectful. However, it was Joe Gorga who ultimately crossed the line too far. Calling Dolores a broken woman was beyond deplorable.

Another hot topic at Michelle Pais’ party was Teresa Giudice and her new man. She’s giddy and gushing over the new guy in her life. Teresa had no desire to stay as long as everyone else at the party. She wanted to dart home to her beau as fast as she possibly could. While it’s great to see Teresa’s love life in such good standing, blowing off the women is a bad look. When will everyone finally get to meet him? Why’s she keeping him locked away like a dirty secret?

Marlo Hampton Says It Was A Lot For Drew Sidora To Show Her Son’s Struggles On TV; Praises Her For Keeping It Real

The Real Housewives of Atlanta have wrapped up their season and if I’m being honest, I was underwhelmed. It’s one of my favorite franchises, so I feel like they could give me nothing and I would still be happy. Which is kind of true for this season. But they hyped up the whole Bolo situation so much, I was expecting more. And they just didn’t deliver. Despite Kenya Moore trying to make BoloGate happen, it just kind of fell flat. Does anyone really care if Porsha Williams slept with him or not? I don’t.

But with a new season we did get a new housewife, Drew Sidora. While she clashed with almost everyone, she made it a point to show a lot of her personal life in her first season. And I mean A LOT. We got to swoon over her hot husband, Ralph Pittman, only to immediately un-swoon when he ditched her for three days without a peep. That was a mess if I’m being frank. I don’t care how hot he is, disappearing to “Tampa” for three days is a marriage dealbreaker for me. But Drew also shared a family struggle that included her oldest son, Josiah, coming to terms with his biological father.

Meghan Edmonds

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City only recently finished their first season. And truthfully, it was one of the strongest first seasons from a franchise that we’ve seen in well, forever. Bravo really nailed the casting, right down to their heroes (Heather Gay) and villains (Jen Shah).

But as we have recently come to learn, Jen isn’t just a villain on screen. She might also be one off screen, having been busted by the feds for alleged shady business practices. It’s true, throughout the season, her castmates had questions about what exactly it is that Jen does. Her husband is a college coach but we all know that’s not bringing in chalet money. Even if it was a rental. Nah, Jen was always dressed to the nines in designer clothes and had multiple assistants, plus a glam squad. And everyone was wondering for what. We never got our answer on the show. But now we think we might have an idea.
