Reality Tea

Joe Benigno

The men of Real Housewives of New Jersey can hold their own when it comes to reality TV entertainment.  Joe Gorga blazed the trail when he joined as the brother of the woman whom the show revolves around.  He and Teresa Giudice brought the family drama for sure.  Slowly, the crew built up to include Frank Catania, Bill Aydin, Joe Benigno, and Evan Goldschneider.  There is no other show in the Real Housewives franchise that includes the husbands as much as RHONJ.  And we love it.

Of course, the guys will get involved in the drama.  It’s hard not to react in some way when all the women are in conflict.  The rather damaging fight between Teresa and Jackie Goldschneider understandably involved the entire cast.  The fallout from Teresa spreading rumors about Evan cheating on his wife split the group, and even the guys were not able to avoid it.

Porsha Williams Real Housewives Of Atlanta

We are only one day out from the most recent Real Housewives of Atlanta season and Porsha Williams has blessed us with a scandalous story that’s much more interesting than the Bolo of it all (which dragged on for way too long this past season).

Porsha confirmed a romantic relationship with Simon Guobadia, who happens to be a good friend of Dennis McKinley’s. Oh, and if that last name sounded familiar, he’s Falynn Guobadia’s very recent  ex-husband. You know, the one who she avenged by attempting to chase LaToya Ali around with a golf club at that failed Halloween party. What. A. Plot. Twist. Let’s get the cameras on this one. This is way more intriguing than anything we witnessed this past season.

Jennifer Aydin Real Housewives Of New Jersey

Season 11 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is on fire! One prominent story line on RHONJ this season is Dolores Catania and David Principe’s relationship. Dolores never moved into David’s house because she didn’t have a commitment. But now Dolores claims that she is happy with David just the way things are.

Frank Catania, Dolores’ ex-husband and forever roomie, even asked David if a marriage proposal was looming somewhere on the horizon. Spoiler alert- it doesn’t look promising.

Vanderpump Rules Lala Kent

The silver lining in the mess that was 2020 was that Bravo gifted us with the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And they didn’t just launch a new show, they knocked it out of the park with Season 1. Jen Shah’s outbursts. Heather Gay’s loyalty. Meredith Marks’ disengaged attitude. Mary Cosby in her closet with her step-grandpa. We loved every minute of it.

The show stood so well on its own after Season 1, fans probably forgot that a few Vanderpump Rules stars made an appearance at the beginning of the show. Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Lala Kent, both from Utah, are pretty tight with Whitney Rose and Heather. They made an appearance at the Shah Chalet, which may or may not have been just a set up by production. It opens the doors for more VPR cameos in future seasons, now that we know Pump Rules isn’t dead and gone for good. 

Vanderpump-Rules-Jax-Taylor

There have been a ton of changes for the cast of Vanderpump Rules since Season 8 wrapped. In June of 2020, “OG” stars Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder were fired for their alleged racist behavior.

Pump Rules viewers also wanted Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright held accountable for their past racially inappropriate behavior. In 2018, Jax implied that his co-star, Faith Stowers, was “AWOL” from the military and stole a car. Faith alleged that Brittany made racist comments about her appearance.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 11

Put on your diamonds and pour the rosé — the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are headed back to our TV screens very soon. Season 11 will be without Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Denise Richards. Sutton Stracke finally got a diamond, and is the one who we will see go all-in on Erika Jayne about her shady divorce and husband’s legal problems. Kyle Richards will be joined by her sister. No, unfortunately not Kim RichardsKathy Hilton will be the newest friend-of. And the newest housewife, Crystal Kung Minkoff, will be thrown into the mix. It’s gearing up to be a big season after last year’s flop. Or as I like to call it, Brandi Glanville’s final nail in the Bravo coffin.

Season 11 is set to premiere May 19, and the first trailer is amping up the drama. To no surprise, it centers around Erika and Tom Girardi’s legal issues, where they’re being accused of embezzling settlements from victims of plane crashes, car accidents and more. Thanks to Garcelle Beauvais, we know Sutton is the only one who doesn’t “support” Erika throughout their divorce. But loyalty is a whole other thing in Beverly Hills so that probably mean’s she is just questioning Erika’s involvement like the rest of the world. Outside of the EJ saga, we’ll see Lisa Rinna grapple with the possibility of becoming a Kardashian in-law. Dorit Kemsley and the always entertaining PK Kemsley will be making a return as well.

Jill Zarin

The Real Housewives of New York has undergone plenty of changes throughout its 13 seasons. It all began with Jill Zarin and her “fabulous circle of people” playing tennis and going to charity events. To be fair, the current ladies still do that, but also aren’t afraid to jump in pools naked or throw ravioli at one another. Long gone are the days of the Jill vs. Bethenny Frankel feud. Or Alex McCord and Simon van Kemp’s co-dependent relationship. And while a lot has changed, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps have managed to make it through.

RHONY fans have watched kids like Avery Singer grow up. We’ve mourned deaths, including that of Jill’s longtime husband Bobby Zarin. And while Jill the OG may have not held an apple since Season 4, she’s still an important part of RHONY history. So it’s no wonder she was invited to appear as part of Watch What Happens Live’s episode featuring housewives from seasons past. She earned her place.

Vanderpump Rules Brittany Cartwright

In case you somehow haven’t heard, several Vanderpump Rules OGs (half of whom “left” the show) have become parents throughout the mess that was 2020. Scheana Shay is the most recent mama in the group and joins Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent and Brittany Cartwright. The pregnancy pact was real AF.  And yes, Jax Taylor is embracing dad life now and combatting fake Instagram accounts for his baby boy Cruz Cauchi. And I truly wouldn’t expect anything less.

Britt and Jax have been fully enjoying the beginning of their parenting journey. And honestly, good for them. Pump Rules is moving on with Season 9 without them, but they are unbothered and enjoying their little family. They’ve taken Cruz on playdates to meet some of the other VPR babies, and truly seem very happy entering into this phase of their lives.
