Big Brother

Christie Valdiserri Big Brother

It was mere days ago that the season 23 cast for Big Brother was announced. Clear your calendars for Wednesday July 7th, if you haven’t already! The countdown to Day 1 is on.

Since the announcement fans have gone wild, clamoring for any info available on the game play and player dynamics. This season will feature 16 houseguests with a range of backgrounds and expertise. We’ve got a farmer, a phlebotomist, and a teacher in the house. It’s sounding like players will also compete as teams. Are your brackets ready?

Jax Taylor Vanderpump Rules

Vanderpump Rules Season 9 is fast approaching, and there’s no doubt it will be a season unlike any other. Half of the OG cast “left” (aka got fired) from the show after last season for various displays of bad behavior. That includes new dad Jax Taylor, which is still a shocking concept to wrap my head around. Jax has been a VPR OG since the early days and his bad-boy antics ranged from entertaining to downright toxic. He’s stolen sunglasses. He’s blown up on his friends. He cheated on his fiance. The list goes on. And while Jax might not be missed by many on the next season, his absence will truly be somewhat alarming.

Jax and Brittany Cartwright are new parents battling with their bookkeeper and weirdos on Instagram who make fake accounts pretending to be their newborn baby. They hang out with fellow disgraced former Pump Rules parents Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark. Jax has definitely shown he’s pretty bitter about his alleged firing, saying that he didn’t even want to be a part of the phoniness anyway. Which disputes his early claims regarding his excitement to start filming Season 9. And you know who’s laughing all the way to the bank to cash their Bravo check that Jax misses so much? Miss Charli Burnett who never eats pasta. And that’s on that.

Big Brother

It’s no secret that the Black Lives Matter movement has altered the world of reality television. Whether they’ve stated it’s in response to the movement or not, Bravo has been casting shows including more women of color lately. Eboni K. Williams and Leva Bonaparte come to mind. While Leva says she doesn’t believe in race, Eboni reports that the RHONY crew will be discussing race point blank. Even some diversity of thought!

Bravo has also had to face several accusations of casting racist reality stars over the years. I can’t think of a single Housewives franchise that hasn’t been under fire for racism at some point. And they’re not alone. CBS has come under fire too. Remember Big Brother’s season 21 winner, Jackson Michie? For those who missed it, he was announced as the winner and then immediately grilled on all his racist decision making during the season. On Live TV. What a treat.

We are excited to announce a collaboration with S’More, which recently started a weekly show called S’More Live Happy Hour, which includes interviews with celebs and reality stars dishing on dating stories, playing hilarious games, and spilling some tea.
Reality Tea will cover the recently published and upcoming episodes. So far, S’More has talked with Sutton Stracke from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,  Love is Blind cast member Kelly Chase, Summer House star Carl Radke, Below Deck alum Ashton Pienaar, Real Housewives of New York alum Barbara Kavovit, former RHOBH cast member Eden Sassoon, Big Brother alum Rachel Reilly, and more.

Nene Leakes Real Housewives Of Atlanta

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast vacation in Greece continues tonight. And, apparently, it’s all about the ladies’ determination to get NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore to make up. First off, why would they want that? The drama is what keeps this show going. Second, that’s just never going to happen. Unless, NeNe and Kenya have a common enemy, of course. Other than that, there’s no way these two will ever be on the same side.

But, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss have no other storylines, so they’re gonna push this NeNe and Kenya reconciliation as much as they can. And I’m sure one of them is just gonna explode, which is probably what Cynthia and Kandi really we want it. We see you, girls. Oh, and Tanya Sam and Porsha Williams are also on this same quest of harmony. Please be more interesting, thank you. At least we have Marlo Hampton around. She’s never afraid to be her true messy self, none of this harmony nonsense.

Check Out Photos From Temptation Island Season 2 Premiere- James Kennedy, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Bella Twins, & More Reality TV Stars!

The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.

White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.

Big Brother 21 Finale Recap: Controversy Clouds The Night

Perhaps it’s fitting that this season of Big Brother ended the way it started: With controversy. Even Nicole (America’s Favorite Player y’all!) had asked for things to come full-circle during tonight’s Finale Episode at one point, and boy did they ever. But a terribly mismanaged Finale ended up sucking all the wind out of what is normally a celebratory and fun finish to everybody’s favorite Summertime guilty pleasure.

Big Brother 21 Week 12 Recap: The Final Three Are Set…Who Will Win Big Brother 21?

It’s no cliché to say that people go crazy and make irrational decisions inside the Big Brother House…it’s a fact. From the comfort of our couches at home, it’s easy to pass judgment on the decisions that the house guests make or don’t make over the course of the Summer, as they have no contact whatsoever with the outside world. When you’re living in the Big Brother House, up can sometimes appear to be down, and right can disguise itself as left. That’s exactly what happened this past week on Big Brother, as we near towards the Season 21 Finale next Wednesday night, now less than one week away.

I’ll try to avoid spoilers above the warning label, but as I do at the beginning of every one of my Survivor recaps, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you are caught up on all of the aired episodes of Big Brother 21.
