We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the December 4, 2019 edition of Wednesday Morning Tea.
The true origin of the Kim Zolciak and Kenya Moore feud is just so unclear. Kim left Real Housewives of Atlanta in the middle of Kenya’s first season. Then, she reappeared at the Chateau Sheree housewarming party and confronted Kenya for going into the still-unfinished basement. Kenya told her she looked like a duck because of her plumped-up lips, which was a fair comparison in all honesty.
The next season, things really came to a head at NeNe Leakes‘ white party. The partygoers all looked angelic in their all-white outfits, but Kenya and Kim did not behave like angels. At all. Kim questioned the legitimacy of Kenya’s then-secret marriage to Marc Daly. Then, Kenya accused Kim of pimping out her daughter Brielle Biermann for John Legend tickets. Never forget that now-deleted tweet Brielle supposedly wrote from Kim’s account asking Chrissy Teigen who Brielle has to “blow” for concert tickets. Kenya and NeNe were actually on the same side (for once) when they put Kim in her place during the Season 10 RHOA reunion. You remember that one, right? Andy Cohen told Kim that she brought “nothing positive” to the show and Kim said that racism wasn’t real. That was the end of Kim’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta, for now anyway. However, that hasn’t stopped her from commenting on the show’s cast members.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ season ended a few months ago. Of course, the big news at the end of the season was that Queen Lisa Vanderpump had abandoned ship. Since then, an announcement came out that a few new cast members have been added–actress Garcelle Beauvais and party planner Sutton Stracke.
Garcelle says she is up to the challenge of her new role. Sutton believes that “it is an honor to be on the show.” You have to wonder, what does it take to actually become a Housewife? How is the final decision of who will be cast made? Recently, one big-name Hollywood celebrity dished on the possibility of becoming a Housewife someday.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have come a long way. The couple just tied the knot in Kentucky. The wedding happened in spite of a host of obstacles (some self-imposed by Jax himself), including the passing of Jax’s father. They even sweetly saved a seat for Jax’s dad at the ceremony.
Determined to prove they have weathered the worst of their collective past, the couple went all out for the big day. Brittany’s ring was modeled after Princess Diana and Meghan Markle’s rings. They also married in a castle modeled after Windsor Castle. Every person they ever met (except Billie Lee) was invited to the nuptials, including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Even though the couple has only been married a few weeks, they have been vocal about having baby fever since before the big day.
It’s official, Vanderpump Rules fans– Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor are hitched! The couple made it official on June 29 and got married at the Kentucky Castle. Nearly every Pumps Rules star was at the wedding. Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval performed “best men” duties, while Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, and SUR manager Peter Madrigal stood up for Jax. Katie Maloney attended Brittany as her matron of honor. Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Kristin Doute served as members of the bridal party. Other Bravo guests included former Summer House stars Stephen McGee and Lauren Wirkus and Southern Charm star Shep Rose.
John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are such fans of the show that they were invited to the wedding. Alas, the superstars didn’t attend. Can you imagine if they had been there, and John serenaded the couple at their reception?
It’s no secret that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Vanderpump Rules superfans. Both of them constantly tweet about their obsession. The couple also appeared opposite the cast on an episode of Family Feud. Plus, Chrissy is the only most famous person to care about Meemaw’s Beer Cheese. Who could ever forget the couple singing the show’s theme song on Watch What Happens Live!?
This level of super-fandom has even made Chrissy Kyle Richards’ top choice to join the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s safe to say that many Bravolebrities view Chrissy as a huge step up from everyone they know friend. So much so that she and John are invited to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding!
There is no question that Dorinda Medley is living her best life right now on Real Housewives of New York. She managed to put her differences with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps in her rear view. Last season Dorinda drunkenly heckled Luann at Luann’s cabaret debut by screaming “Jovani! Jovani!” So, Luann banned Dorinda from Barbara Kavovit’s clam bake.
When Dorinda once again hosted the ladies at her home in the Bezerkshires, she graciously accepted Countess Luann’s list of requirements. Dorinda arranged yoga and a massage for Luann. When Luann had a temper tantrum because she didn’t want to sleep in the infamous fish room, Dorinda plopped Barbara in the room instead. Dorinda spent $250,000 to display these taxidermy fishes. Don’t these ladies realize how hard Dorinda worked at making this room nice?
Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid has had quite the rollercoaster ride before, during, and after her pregnancy. First, she and her husband, Tommy Feight, went through IVF to get pregnant. Soon after, she was put on mandatory bed rest where she tweeted with Chrissy Teigen to pass the time.
After that MJ almost had a miscarriage and was back on bed rest. Thankfully she got better, but then had to deal with “fans” on social media claiming she wasn’t really pregnant. Well, she proved the haters wrong when she recently gave birth to her baby boy Shams. Now MJ has come forward to talk about what happened to her right after his birth.
