I’m not gonna name names, but there are a lot of reality stars who think they’re a way bigger deal than they actually are. That’s not because I’m trying to be classy. It’s just because there are too many reality TV cast members with big egos and an inflated sense of importance.
OK, OK. Twist my arm. I’ll mention one of those people. Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes has been a polarizing figure. NeNe has acted like she is too good for the show that made her famous and gave her all that money she brags about. She even left RHOA for a little bit to pursue some other opportunities. There’s no doubt that NeNe was hustling for those checks. She had a guest role on Glee. She acted in a show called The New Normal, which was canceled. NeNe appeared on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. To be honest, I have no specific memories of NeNe on that show. However, who could ever forget NeNe bragging to Sheree Whitfield about her “Trump check” on RHOA?
On April 3, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga shared that their father, Giacinto Gorga, passed away. The lovable man became a paternal figure for Joe and Teresa’s friends and even the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers.
Joe and Teresa’s kids always called Giacinto “Nonno,” which is the Italian word for “grandfather.” Even the RHONJ viewers have affectionately referred to him as “Nonno” throughout the years. Aside from the obvious sadness for the Giudice and Gorga family members, there’s all an additional hurdle during this time period. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, people are not allowed to partake in large gatherings. Of course, there’s a major risk of spreading and contracting the virus.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the April 7 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.
Below Deck Sailing Yacht is back with a new episode tonight. And things are heating up. Of course, Chief Stew Jenna MacGillivray is still on Madison Stalker’s case for being “unprofessional.” That’s laughable considering that Jenna and Adam Glick are kissing and touching each other in the middle of the workday.
Parker McCown tries to be there for Madison, advising her to tell Jenna “to back the f*ck off.” Something tells me that approach would not go over well. At all. Plus, I doubt that Madison wants any advice from her crush who is super into his ex-girlfriend. Oh, and he invited her to visit.
Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
After months of rumors about a boring season, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 10 trailer was released and it looked good, i.e. better than anything RHOBH viewers have watched in years. People who doubted that the women could come through had more faith in the season. Things looked promising.
Now, the taglines are out, and the reveal didn’t have the same effect. Generic, much? Maybe I just set the bar too high after that amazing trailer. Or, maybe I’m wrong and these are the best taglines of all time. Let’s jump in. I can’t wait to see what you all think in the comments section.
Tiger King is just the gift that keeps on giving, especially during these quarantined times. Watching the seven-episode Netflix series gave us all a lot to think about and plenty to say. And, the content just kept on coming. Pretty much everyone who took part in the docuseries has done interviews and made statements about the dramatic storylines (i.e. the multiple murder allegations). Even, SPOILER ALERT: Joe Exotic has communicated his opinions even though he’s locked up in prison.
With Joe Exotic put away, that’s the end of Tiger King, right? Nope, not at all. Aside from the news stories that roll out every day, there’s also a scripted version of Tiger King in the works. But, wait. There is more though. There is actually one more episode of Tiger King headed your way. Very soon too.
As we are all aware, we are living in some tough times these days. At least, we have some entertaining TV shows to watch while we are social distancing and staying safe in our homes.
As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Watch What Happens Live has been filming new episodes via video chat. Andy Cohen hosts from the safety of his New York City apartment. And different guests video chat in from wherever they are. Although it’s great to see the stars glammed up with pounds of hair extensions and self-tanner, this filming from home thing definitely has some advantages. For instance, there are no travel schedules to consider. This means that it is possible to have premium guests every single night.
