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.

Ramona-Singer-Florida

Every single time Ramona Singer posts a photo in Florida, I think about the Real Housewives of New York episode when she said “I go to Miami like I brush my teeth. Miami is not really a special place.” I’ll disagree about the latter. But in regard to the former, she really is in Florida pretty often. Or at least that is what it seems like according to Instagram.

Ramona shared some photos from her recent adventures in Boca Raton and Palm Beach. Palm Beach always makes me think of Tom D’Agostino and that yacht. Did Ramona run into her brief former flame in the Sunshine State? Oh, and who could ever forget a wasted Tinsley Mortimer teaching Luann de Lesseps about the difference between Palm Beach and West Palm. Even though they are all on a show called Real Housewives of New York, they really do seem to be in Florida a lot.

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.

RHONY’s Bethenny Frankel Is Having Vision and Memory Changes From Allergic Reaction to Fish

Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel is still struggling with health issues from an almost fatal allergic reaction to fish. During that terrifying incident in December, the reality star ate some soup and felt her throat get itchy.

Then, she became unconscious. Now, she credits her boyfriend, Paul Bernon, with saving her life. It sounds like he is a good man to have around in a crisis!

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.

OG Real Housewives Spill Tea On Watch What Happens Live- Ramona Singer Says Bethenny Frankel Is “Trying To Be” A Good Friend

The O Come OG Faithful episode of Watch What Happens Live was everything that I wanted and more. Andy Cohen gathered OG Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice, and Kyle Richards for a special holiday celebration.

Before he provoked them to spill some tea and throw some shade, Andy announced, “Just so you know, Luann [de Lesseps] is doing her cabaret show tonight. Lisa Vanderpump is opening a restaurant in Las Vegas and she’s there prepping. Bethenny [Frankel] is under the weather.” To be fair, Bethenny almost died when she was hospitalized with an allergic reaction. To say that she was “under the weather” is an understatement.

Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel’s New Boyfriend Saves her Life

It has been a tough year for Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel. Her on/off boyfriend Dennis Shields died unexpectedly on August 10. Her beloved dog Cookie passed away in October.  In the face of her momentous grief, Bethenny threw her energy into relief efforts for hurricane relief.

During the epic RHONY cast trip to Colombia, Bethenny mentioned that she has a fish allergy as they sat down to lunch. She even joked about her cast mates “wanting to poison her.” However, they had more than enough drama and trauma on that vacation. This trip that Tinsley Mortimer organized was full of all sorts of drama. First, the boat almost sank, there were tears and arguments galore, and all the Housewives contracted explosive diarrhea. I don’t think that Tinsley Mortimer will ever be allowed to plan any future Housewives trips. Ever. Again.
