For the most part, every Love After Lockup couple ends the season broken up and/or with one person back in prison. Brittany Santiago and her husband Marcelino Santiago are not one of those couples. Sure, they fight just like anyone else in a relationship, but their lives have truly changed in the past year.
Brittany got out of prison. Brittany and Marcelino got married. The duo welcomed a baby girl named Zoila. Brittany’s son from a previous relationship, Giovanni, is a big part of their lives as well. And, unlike, a majority of the other cast members on this show, Brittany is not back in prison. She is not back to her old ways. Both Brittany and Marcelino are focused on moving forward. Still, there’s plenty of drama in their lives, which is why they’re a part of the Love After Lockup spin-off series Life After Lockup. The Santiagos spoke with Reality Tea about the new show and their lives since filming wrapped.
Technically speaking, Monique Samuels is not an OG cast member on Real Housewives of Potomac. Practically speaking, she might as well be. The then-fledgling show was just trying to figure itself during the first season.
Even though Season 1 wasn’t a major hit right out of the gate, the show truly found its footing during the second year, which is when Monique joined the cast. Is that a coincidence? It might be, but there is no doubt that Monique puts the “real” in Real Housewives. She has kept it one hundred from the second she became a Housewife and she continues to do so two seasons later. Recently, the mom of three opened up to Reality Tea during an exclusive interview.
When Kameron Westcott first joined Real Housewives of Dallas, I couldn’t help wondering what Nicole Kidman was doing on TV and why she was dressed like Elle Woods, the iconic character from Legally Blonde. Seriously though, if Nicole Kidman needs a body double, Kameron would be a prime candidate.
Right from the jump, she came through with a great tagline: “Dumb blondes get noticed. Smart blondes get everything.” You would think that a Nicole Kidman doppelganger, with an all pink wardrobe, and a genuine passion for philanthropy would be an immediate hit among the fans.
However, it hasn’t been an easy road for Kameron. And part of that is because the viewers don’t get to see every side of Kameron. Sure, they don’t get to see every side of any reality TV star. Nevertheless, there is more to Kameron than an enviable wardrobe and chatter about “Dallas society.” Much, much more. Get to know a different side of the Dallas Housewife in our exclusive interview!
And, yes, she does discuss the Season 3 reunion fights with D’Andra Simmons and Brandi Redmond. She even answers some critical questions about her close relationship with LeeAnne Locken. This is truly a side of Kameron that you’ve never seen before.
We don’t get to see a ton of Tanya Sam on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but when we do we get to witness someone who’s clearheaded, well-rounded, and not sweating the small stuff. In other words, she’s a breath of fresh air among women arguing about overpriced flip flops and rehashing drama from three years ago.
We first “met” Tanya as a friend of NeNe Leakes en route to Cynthia Bailey’s Bailey-Cue event. A few episodes later, her title on the show describes her as “Eva [Marcille]’s friend,” which is some super shady editing. Nevertheless, there’s much more to Tanya than who she’s friends with. Unfortunately, we just don’t get to see all of her dimension on the show. Thankfully, Tanya recently opened up to Reality Tea for an exclusive interview. She provided some valuable insights and spilled some behind-the-scenes info about her first season on the show.
Yesterday had to be such an awkward day for Melissa Gorga to do press. Of course, promoting a show about arguing with family and friends has to be uncomfortable in general. Not only that, but those photos of Teresa Giudice holding hands with a 26-year-old random just hit the internet.
Obviously, Melissa and Teresa are not on the best terms these days. Nevertheless, that is such a tough conversation topic. In not-at-all-surprising news, Andy Cohen opened with that topic during yesterday’s Watch What Happens Live.
Is it February 12 yet? I’m eagerly anticipating the premiere of Lisa Vanderpump vs. Everyone. Ummm, I mean Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 9. There has been so much gossip during filming, The fans just want to know the truth!
Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave were on Watch What Happens Live last night. If they weren’t talking about Lisa Vanderpump, they were just waiting for a chance to bring her up. Then again, Andy Cohen was the one stirring the pot. I mean asking the questions. He wanted them to mention LVP. Clearly.
Last season on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Dolores Catania referred to Danielle Staub as a “crazy scumbag.” She tried to warn the whole cast about the OG Housewife and her ways. However, no one was buying what she was selling. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Margaret Josephs just loved Danielle. They were even bridesmaids in her wedding.
And we all saw how that went. Danielle turned into an incomparable bridezilla. Thankfully, she owned up to her antics and apologized, but was it too little too late? After the wedding, Danielle told Teresa and Melissa that Margaret told her not to trust them. Deja vu much? This very much mirrors the controversy with Dolores and Teresa last season. The common thread? These were both Danielle-instigated issues.
Considering that the Super Bowl was in Atlanta, it makes sense that Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members would attend events all weekend. Cynthia Bailey even had a pretty cool story to share with reporters on the red carpet. Or so she thought…
Cynthia told everyone about how she met Tom Brady. Yes, that Tom Brady, as if he wasn’t busy preparing for a football game all weekend. Sure, he was in Atlanta, obviously, but there’s no way he’s just walking around the lobby at a random hotel.
