Reality Tea

Tyra Banks

Pretty much all I remember about America’s Next Top Model is that Shandi Sullivan had sex with someone who wasn’t her boyfriend in a hot tub night one. I can’t seem to remember important dates or facts but this is somehow burned in my memory bank. The real point, however, is that I didn’t watch ANTM. That reason was Tyra Banks.

In the early years of ANTM she also had a talk show, Tyra. It was focused on “women’s issues” and often featured women from ANTM. That way, Tyra could make Tyra all about herself. Now, for whatever reason, she’s hosting Dancing With the Stars and banning any and all Housewives.

Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel birthday

Season 7 of Southern Charm is about to hit our television screens, after a long delay. On one hand, you can blame the pandemic for the hiccup in filming. On the other hand, you can blame Kathryn Dennis for starting a rumor that caused half the cast to quit. That Kathryn, she works hard for the money…

Most of Kathryn’s legacy consists of her tumultuous liaison with Southern Charm alum, Thomas Ravenel. Their on/off relationship is still fresh in the mind of fans. So is the vitriolic custody battle over their children. The mutual mudslinging. The accusations from both parties about drug and alcohol abuse. It seemed like there was no coming back from the harsh words exchanged between the former couple. Well, things change and people are stupid evolve. In an odd twist of fate, Kathryn found herself living with T-Rav once again, and cameras were there to capture it all.

Sheree Whitfield

We’re all sick of it. The horrible plague began it’s assault on the world earlier this year and most everyone has been impacted by the virus. The entertainment world basically shut down in an effort to slow the spread. We said good-bye to Broadway and a host of television shows went out of production. As we try to move forward in a safe manner, we are seeing the fallout of such an extraordinary contagion.

Businesses took a very hard hit. If it didn’t close, it might be struggling. Speaking of struggling, Real Housewives of Atlanta veteran, Shereé Whitfield has long touted her fashion line. Those obsessed with on-trend styles and everything Vogue have been waiting years for the official debut of She by Shereé. Now, it’s with a heavy heart that I must report Coronavirus has taken yet another métier. Friends, we must bid adieu to our dreams of a fashion show with no fashion.

Real Housewives Of New York Tinsley Mortimer

Tinsley Mortimer’s final season on Real Housewives of New York was a doozy. During Season 12, Tinsley was the object of Dorinda Medley’s unprovoked rage. Dorinda accused Tinsley of secretly carrying on a relationship with off-and-on boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda also attacked Tinsley for not being authentic on RHONY. OK, Dorinda.

Mid-way through the season, Tinsley announced that she was ditching the show and heading off to Chicago to be with her boo. I can’t say that I blame her when her mere presence incited such anger from Dorinda.

Erika Jayne Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Sure, Erika Jayne had some songs on the dance charts before she joined Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but no one can argue that the show didn’t put her career at an entirely new level. Her songs get more play. She’s been able to tour the country. She had a starring role in Chicago on Broadway. She’s endorsed makeup products and shoes on Instagram. Erika has even walked in the Fenty Fashion Show.

Sure, she can attribute a lot of that to hustle and talent, but let’s give credit where it’s due. She also needs to thank the fans that support her. That’s apparently a lesson that she has yet to learn.

Terry Dubrow

Dr. Terry Dubrow was able to parlay his plastic surgery expertise and his Real Housewives of Orange County screen time to get his own show with Dr. Paul Nassif, Botched.

Now, a patient is claiming that Terry botched her procedure and the whole situation is just so complicated. Let’s try to break it down.

Tori Spelling

After years of publicly begging to become a Housewife on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it might almost be happening for Tori Spelling.

Apparently, she will join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 in a Friend of the Housewives role. Womp, womp. Then again, I’m sure she could use a dollar or two at this point, given her highly publicized financial struggles.

Darcey Silva

After means seasons on various 90 Day Fiance shows, Darcey Silva is finally a fiancée. She got engaged to Georgi Rusev in June, 2020.

After some disastrous relationships with Jesse Meester and Tom Brooks, Darcey finally got engaged. Will it last? We shall see. Will it play out on TV? Of course. Does it even count as a relationship if it’s not entirely documented on reality TV and social media? Apparently, not.
