Reality Tea

Lisa Vanderpump

Whether you’re Team Lisa Vanderpump or Team Everyone else, (pretty much) everyone can agree that she is an avid LGBTQ advocate. That’s why it was so surprising when she made a seemingly transphobic “joke” about Erika Jayne during the last episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Lisa was talking about the lie detector test she took during the episode. Aside from the questions about the dog scandal, John Sessa included a question that shaded Dorit Kemsley’s constantly changing face and accent. Lisa had no problem answering every question except for one that she didn’t want mentioned. Lisa randomly”joked,” “Just don’t ask me if Erika’s tucking or something like that because there are some things I can’t lie about.” Did anyone even ask her something about that? How long was she sitting on that line? This was very out of character for Lisa. It didn’t even fit into the context of the situation. At all. Why would the very vocal LGBTQ supporter make this remark?

Vanderpump Rules’ Jax Taylor Apologizes To James Kennedy & Raquel Leviss After Reunion Drama

The Season 7 reunion of Vanderpump Rules ended with a bang. The majority of the cast seemed united on one thing, slamming James Kennedy. Because they are all hypocrites James made some unflattering comments towards Katie Maloney, he was fired from SUR. We even saw James begging for his job back from Lisa Vanderpump. Does James drink? Yes. Does James maybe participate in other substances that could alter his personality? Perhaps. But he was condemned for something other cast members engage in as well.

James is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. His apologies fall on deaf ears and are often not accepted. Viewers saw him make attempts at therapy, helping his family, and trying to be better. Like a child or untrained puppy, when he received little to no positive reinforcement regarding his efforts, he lapsed into a “give no f*cks” attitude. In a moment of clarity, one Pump Rules persona did offer James and tortured girlfriend Raquel Leviss an apology. Oddly enough, the world did not implode when this phenomenon occurred.

Jacqueline Laurita’s Husband Chris Is Selling Their Belongings On Facebook

It seems that Real Housewives of New Jersey’s alum Jacqueline Laurita and her husband, Chris Laurita, are continuing to experience financial difficulties. Fans haven’t heard very much about their financial issues lately, but Jacqueline has been quick to weigh in on everything else RHONJ.

Jacqueline told the world that the franchise needs “OG” Caroline Manzo back, and that Caroline is the bona-fide “queen of that show.” Jacqueline also criticized former bestie, and current straight-up enemy, Teresa Giudice’s plans to ditch her husband Joe Giudice if he is deported to Italy.

Vicki Gunvalson Emily Simpson Tamra Judge Vicki engagement party

It finally happened. Vicki Gunvalson is off the market. Yes, in case you missed it, Steve Lodge actually proposed to the OG of the OC. The Real Housewives of Orange County star said yes, of course. She’s been begging for hinting for a proposal for the past few seasons. Not only that, but there was some gossip that Vicki would be demoted to a Friend of the Housewives if she did not engaged. How romantic!

Pretty much every RHOC season ends with a big party and Season 14 is no different. Next season concludes with Vicki and Steve’s engagement party. And that means the viewers will have to endure more Tres Amigas nonsense. Vicki’s allies costars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador hosted the engagement party.

Oh Real Housewives Of New York don’t ever change. Do I open ever recap with this sentence? But seriously Real Housewives Of New York spirals through cycles of emotions faster than a Cathy cartoon about dating and PMS, and I don’t want it any other way.

Anytime you take these ladies anywhere – even to the doctor; even to the nail salon; even to Luann de Lesseps‘ yardsale in the Hamptons, they exist in their own self-contained orbit of revolving arguments, makeups, friendships, feuds, hurt feelings, men… Like a drunken comet hurtling towards church here they come, slathered in statement necklaces and macrame, and shedding skin from laser facials, and shedding tears from all the people who have wronged them first leading them hear to a sky-high tolerance for emotional instability and pain. And hell hath no fury like a group of middle-aged women scorned, with nothing else to lose. Amen, sistas. A-MEN, but you don’t need ’em cause you have each other. (And cheesecake on the lanai, of course). 

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

The Real Housewives of New York has been all about Luann de Lesseps this season. Luann’s cabaret show. Luann’s post-rehab life. Square peg Luann buying a round house in upstate New York. Sometimes it seems that all the other cast members are living in a scary theme park called Luann-Land. And they are trapped upside down on a terrifying ride they can’t get off of. Even more frightening then the Ramona Singer Ramonacoaster!

Understandably, anyone just out of rehab might be internally focused, but Luann has taken it to the next level. It makes you wonder how she will fare at this season’s reunion. Did Luann enter the set and tell her co-stars, “No autographs, please?” Or wear a tiara to match her statement necklace? We will be getting our answer to how she survives the reunion soon enough, as it taped last Friday. And Luann has spilled some details on what went down at the wrap-up of Season 11.

Southern Charm’s Austen Kroll Discusses Tension Between Girlfriend Madison LeCroy & Shep Rose

Season 6 of Southern Charm has finally descended upon us. In the premier episode we met Austen Kroll’s new(est) girlfriend, Madison LeCroy. Madison is a clone of Jessica Simpson currently Patricia Altschul’s hair stylist and friends with Naomie Olindo, so she is already familiar to the group. She is also familiar with Austen’s lies tendency to have his cake and eat it too. After walking in on her beau having dalliances with two other women, she “forgave” him and continued the relationship.

Austen was able to talk his way out of that unfortunate circumstance, I guess it helps to have a television show. He certainly cannot fall back on his ambitious career choices. But what do Austen’s close pals think of his lady friend? In the trailer for the new season, we saw Madison tell Austen she thinks Shep Rose is a “bad influence” on him. But is Shep just an easy target, or does he really have some kind of leverage over how Austen behaves?

Dorit Kemsley Lisa Vanderpump RHOBH Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion

In a story line that absolutely, positively, categorically will not die, #puppygate has yet to be resolved. As Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has shown us, some things can definitely go past their expiration date. Viewers are well aware Lisa Vanderpump has been targeted for the majority of the season because the other ladies don’t want to discuss their legal issues of a mixed-breed chihuahua. I think we can all agree the dog has been over it for quite some time now.

The drama continues regarding who is at fault for bringing #puppygate into the spotlight. Whomever it was, I would like to have a word because it has become excessive. We are still in the dark over the person who dropped the dog off at a kill shelter, which really should be the problem at hand. Anyohmygodcanwepleasemoveon, after most of Lisa V.’s friendships within the cast have been terminated, her credibility remains questioned by her former pals. Fans of RHOBH saw Lisa undergo a lie detector test in the last episode, in an effort to clear her name. Lisa addresses why she submitted to the test, and her relationships going forward.
