Yolanda Hadid Is Done With Cosmetic Enhancements

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid is starting the New Year off in a more natural state. Yolanda, who suffers from Lyme disease (in case you have been hiding under a rock for years and didn’t know0, left RHOBH after Season 6. Of course, Yolanda shared with fans that it was her decision to quit the show. They all say that. Right?

Other sources said that Yolanda decided to leave after she was offered a gig as to be a Friend of the Housewives (oh, the horror!) instead of a full-time cast member. There was also word that Bravo wanted to capture something other than Lyme disease as Yolanda’s storyline, and that may have been the breaking point.

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

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.

Dorit Kemsley & PK Kemsley

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Dorit Kemsley’s tagline “I may believe in an excess of everything…except moderation”, might hold more truth than we realized.

Dorit, whose faux English accent has the same effect of nails dragging across the chalkboard, and her husband,  PK Kemsley, live a lavish lifestyle in Beverly Hills.  Where Boy George sleeps in your guestroom, and a $3 million car as a possible birthday present is nothing to bat a fake eyelash over.

However, it seems as though their lavish spending might have caught up with them. Not only is it time to pay the piper…their payments are late.

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.

Stassi Schroeder, Erika Jayne, Kathryn Dennis, and Bethenny Frankel, struck a pose and showed off some chic outfits. Then there are other reality stars who cropped out their outfits and went for the selfies. Luann de Lesseps, D’Andra Simmons, LeeAnne Locken all posted selfies this week.

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.

Kyle Richards 13 Most Memorable Moments On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

This week we celebrate Kyle Richards‘ birthday, a momentous Bravo occasion if ever there was one, because it is Kyle who brought us kaftans. I cried tears of warm rosé to learn that Kaftans By KyleKantoo closed last year, because how else am I going to satisfy my dream of being shrouded in polyester satin leopard print, weighed down by giant rhinestones and chopped off at the mid-thigh? I guess I’ll have to travel all the way to Beverly Hills to raid Kyle’s closet!

So anyway, follow me as we go on a journey of Kyle’s best (and by ‘best’ I mean WORST!) and most infamous moments on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Most of Kyle’s notable moments are connected to Kim Richards. The  Twisted Sisters Richards have formed the cornerstone of this show’s consistent focus of very real family dysfunction from practically the very first episode.

Lisa Vanderpump Trades Insults With Kristen Doute On Watch What Happens Live Appearance

Even though Lisa Vanderpump was Andy Cohen’s only guest on Watch What Happens Live, it felt like she had company. Vanderpump Rules cast member Kristen Doute chimed in with her own commentary via tweet. Next time, Andy should invite both of them to the Bravo clubhouse to hash out their differences. That would be some good TV.

Lisa did her best to explain why she has sympathy for James Kennedy, Kristen’s (latest) mortal enemy. Kristen wasn’t having it, even while she was watching from her couch at home. She couldn’t resist tweeting some retorts. And, of course, Andy read her posts during the episode.

Why Bravo Needs to Bring Back These Housewives

As another year approaches, it is time to reflect upon the past, and dream about the future. As a reality television fanatic fan, my thoughts turn to which Housewives need to grace our television screens once again. Are you listening, Bravo?

Each Real Housewives franchise has seasons that are amazing and others that are boring less exciting. Often, the key is having the right number of newbies and franchise favorites. But what really makes sparks fly is when a Housewife returns to a show, resuming prior relationships and interacting with newer castmates. Here is my dream team of who needs to be, and deserves to be, a Housewife again.

Kyle-Richards-Kathy-Hilton-Kim-Richards-Christmas

Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.

After years of public tension, it seems like sisters Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, and Kathy Hilton are in a great place. They spent Christmas together as well.

Even though she’s on the outs with her stepchildren, Caitlyn Jenner went to Kim Kardashian’s Christmas party. Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian wore matching outfits with their daughters. Kyle Richards, and Faye Resnick, joined old friend Kris Jenner for a group photo.

As expected, plenty of reality TV stars wore matching Christmas pajamas. Bristol Palin coordinated pajamas with her kids. Additionally, Kameron Westcott and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave took part in the social media Christmas tradition as well.

Stassi Schroeder took her man Beau Clark to her hometown, New Orleans. Jax Taylor visited Brittany Cartwright’s family in Kentucky. California native Scheana Marie spent time with her family, which did include some matching pajamas.

Other reality stars celebrated their last Christmas before adding to their family. For instance, Porsha WilliamsPaola Mayfield, and Lauren Burnham showed off their baby bumps. Jersey Shore stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Deena Nicole Cortese shared baby bump pictures as well.

Bethenny Frankel went Instagram official with Paul Bernon in the Dominican Republic. Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey shared an airplane selfie with her man Mike Hill.

Dolores Catania was just happy to have both of her kids back in the Garden State. And Dorinda Medley enjoyed celebrating with her daughter Hannah.
