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.
Even though Danielle Staub wasn’t a full-time cast member (again), the first half of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 centered around the preparation for her wedding with Marty Caffrey. As if the bridezilla antics weren’t cringe-worthy enough to watch, the whole storyline wreaked of awkwardness knowing that Danielle and Marty called it quits just two months into the marriage.
It was also tough to see Marty going to bat on Danielle’s behalf knowing that just a few months later their split would get very nasty. Marty didn’t go down (literally) without a fight. He ended up in Jennifer Aydin’s pool after Margaret Josephs pushed him in. There has been a lot of chatter about the recently divorced pair. Now, Marty is opening up to Reality Tea to share his side of the story. In an exclusive interview, he discussed everything from the wedding to the pool push, and even his idea for a spin-off show with Danielle and Teresa Giudice.
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.
