Do you keep up with the reality TV news on and off screen?  Are you looking for an outlet to share your opinions and discuss the shows you love (and love to  hate on)? As Aviva Drescher once said, “Use your vocabulary, writer girl”! There’s no better way to do that than by joining the Reality Tea team.

We are looking for some passionate reality TV fans who are interested in writing for our website! Dorinda Medley eloquently declared, “Say it, forget it. Write it, regret it.” However, we don’t live by that mantra. We are all about sharing our reality TV opinions along with the latest news. As Tamra Judge infamously yelled, “THAT’S MY OPINION” and we want to hear yours!

We are looking for fans with near-expert knowledge of the shows that we cover here on Reality Tea, including (but not limited to) Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, 90 Day Fiance, Below Deck, Love After Lockup, Southern Charm, Teen Mom, Ex on the Beach, Married at First Sight, Married to Medicine,  and Shahs of Sunset.

Along with a vast knowledge of reality shows and an interest in the crazy antics of their stars, we need people who are reliable and have great communication.

We Are Looking For New Writers To Join Our Reality Tea Team

Specifically, we are looking for writers who have weekday and daytime availability along with a quick turnaround time for breaking news. However, we will consider writers with other availabilities as well.

We are also open to candidates with varying levels of experience. First and foremost, we are looking for people who love reality television as much as we do.

When people ask “Do you remember that time on Real Housewives when ______?” is your answer is always “yes”? Are you so into Below Deck that you now have an extensive knowledge of yachting terminology? Did you tear up with joy when Andy Cohen announced that he was going to become a father?

Then, what are you waiting for? Send an email to [email protected] to learn more about the opportunities to join the Reality Tea team.

Below Deck - Josiah Carter Gold Speedo

On last night’s Below Deck Josiah Carter‘s childhood insecurities were triggered by demanding and flamboyant guests, and Rhylee Gerber and Tyler Rowland took their relationship next level!

After an entire season of Josiah flying under the radar, it was kinda nice to learn more about him.

Morning Afters on this show are always a shammy of shame. Except if you’re Rhylee and Tyler! I don’t know how anyone who spends like 2 hours a day cleaning and 8 hours a day screaming about how she’s being rejected from manual labor has any energy leftover to be sexing down Tyler, but Rhylee does. She has fought flounder with her barehands so clearly she is superhuman. After 3 solid days of hooking up, Rhylee and Tyler are basically levitating on the after-sex glow as they flirt through their chores.

Tonight the person having the crisis on Below Deck is Josiah Carter. I mean it’s about time he did something besides simmer and sulk behind the scenes, snipe under his breath, and slither about under the protective glare of Kate Chastain! (I kid – I find Josiah hilarious).

After a crazy crew night out Tyler Rowland and Rhylee Gerber went through the five stages of lust, dating, fighting, breaking up, and rekindling. In contrast, Ashton Pienaar and Laura Betancourt have found themselves officially flung out

Reality TV Listings - Below Deck Captain Lee

Reading Captain Lee Rosbach‘s blog is a weekly reminder that he really doesn’t know what was happening onboard My Seanna during filming.  Like the rest of us Below Deck fans, he’s had to keep up with the episodes to view all of the good, the bad, and the ugly behaviors of his crew.

In this week’s blog, Captain Lee reacted to the outbursts of junior deckhand Rhylee Gerber and Third Stew Laura Betancourt. For one suspenseful moment during the last Below Deck episode, it seemed possible that Laura could potentially upstage Rhylee’s insubordination.  But Rhylee still holds the title of most disgruntled employee.  At least Laura wizened  up enough to make nice with her boss, Chief Stew Kate Chastain.

Laura Betancourt seemed to be going down a road many third stews on Below Deck have traveled.  Mix together the inability to properly clean a room on a luxury yacht, a generous helping of ego, and a whole lot of attitude and it could have easily ended with a flight ticket home.  Laura seemed very aware of that.  After she was called out by Captain Lee Rosbach, that is.

Perhaps it was a realization that despite being on a reality show, My Seanna is still fully functioning yacht in operation. Captain Lee could really terminate her employment.  Maybe Laura added a bit of introspection to her morning yoga routine.  Whatever the reason, by the end of the week’s episode, Laura finally found common ground with Chief Stew Kate Chastain.

The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.

Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.

Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.

In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.

And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami.  Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

Caroline Bedol Quits

A lot of people forget that Below Deck is more than just a reality TV show. The cast members are real people, just like anyone else. They’re not actors playing characters. With that said, there is a lot of pressure and scrutiny on Caroline Bedol.

She used to be the Third Stew on Below Deck. However, she got fired in the middle of the season after several charters full of drama. Even though she’s not on the show anymore, she’s still very much in the spotlight, at least among the fandom. Now she’s dealing with some very serious drama, especially in comparison to foot injuries and broken champagne flutes.
