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 9, 2019 edition of Monday Morning Tea.
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
We all know Mohamed Hadid. Father of supermodels, Gigi and
not-Gigi Bella Hadid. Ex-husband of Lyme disease survivor (#neverforget) Yolanda Foster. Or is it Hadid? I can’t keep up with Yolanda’s illnesses or last names. Viewers would also recognize Mohamed as a close friend of Lisa Vanderpump, showing up occasionally on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Mohamed is also a billion-dollar real estate mogul. A
completely non-shady businessman devoted to building some of the most luxurious pads in California. Recently one of these pricey mansions got Mohamed in some hot water. After violating certain codes, Mr. Money found himself on the receiving end of some community service. But the insanely wealthy are not like us. They have people on-hand to take care of every request, from screwing in a light bulb to scrubbing the toilet. Except for Kyle Richards, of course. She does everything herself! So if you thought you would see mega-rich Mohamed on the side of the road picking up trash, think again. He’s got people for that…
We all know that being a Housewife comes with some great perks. Public exposure on a popular television show. Endless opportunities to self-promote whatever it is you are selling. Being a Housewife has led some anonymous women to fame and fortune and helped others in a career lull to re-invent themselves ala Lisa Rinna.
Sounds good so far. But there is sometimes a downside for Real Housewives. And that is the battering they can take on social media. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Jayne has just found out how low the comments can go when you are famous. And you have a son who is a police officer.
In an armor-clad blush lingerie Instagram selfie, Yolanda Hadid took her 55-year-old body-ody-ody to the social media airwaves and captioned beside it her secret to success: “Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, extensions and all the bulls—t I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me.”
Who knew Yolanda was suffering so severely from being of victim of
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.
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.
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 Williams, Paola 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.
