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 April 14 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.
Mischa Barton as a cast member on The Hills: New Beginnings was a random plant to begin with. She wasn’t part of the original crew, or spouse of an OG Hills cast member. And it was unclear from the start what her connection really was with the rest of the group. She had a friendship with a few of the girls but no intertwining story line. Mischa’s only noteworthy moment was confronting Perez Hilton for his body-shaming campaign against her many years before she joined this show.
So perhaps it comes as no surprise that Mischa is rumored to be replaced by Caroline D’Amore, aka DJ D’Amore. Or simply, a pizza heiress. Mischa denied any firing and threw some shade at Caroline in a spirited IG post. Now, costars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Pratt are coming to Mischa’s defense claiming that she belongs on the show.
Back in the day, The Hills was Lauren Conrad’s show. This makes sense since it was her spin-off from the popular MTV show Laguna Beach. She was the narrator. It was Lauren’s world and everyone else was just living in it.
When Lauren cut ties with bestie Heidi Montag because she didn’t like Heidi’s now-husband Spencer Pratt, most of the cast followed suit. After all, they wanted to stay on The Hills, right? Soon, the show will be back for a reboot
because it’s 2019 and no one makes original content anymore called The Hills: New Beginnings. A lot of the show’s original stars will be back, but not Lauren. She’s too busy living her best life and racking in the cash with her lifestyle brand. She has zero interest in returning to the show that propelled her into reality TV stardom and it’s not as if she needs a paycheck unlike the rest of them.
TGIF, Reality Tea readers! We have a new photo gallery for you to kick off the weekend. Shahs of Sunset stars MJ Javid and Tommy Feight got glammed up for the 2018 Make A Wish Gala in Beverly Hills. The parents-to-be recently revealed that they have decided on a unisex baby name and that their new bundle of joy is due to arrive on Mother’s Day next year.
Erika Jayne and Andy Cohen made appearances on The View. Erika performed as part of a birthday celebration for View co-host Meghan McCain, who is a huge Bravo/Erika Jayne fan, and has appeared on WWHL several times.
I have always supported The Hills reboot, but I can’t help feeling confusion every time there’s additional casting news. How is this a “reality show” when there are just (seemingly) random people thrown in on top of some original cast members who are in touch for the first time in years?
Of course, Brody Jenner, Spencer Pratt, Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, and other cast members from the show’s original run are on board, but some of the additions just seem so random. Mischa Barton will be on the show. There were rumblings that Kyle Massey is set to join the cast. Now the son of some pretty famous exes will be on The Hills as well.
There are two types of people in this world: Bravo viewers and liars. Pretty much everyone watches Bravo, right? Well, maybe not, but at the very least, pretty much anyone reading this does. Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid has her own series on the network and she is an avid watcher of other Bravo shows.
Recently MJ made some comments about Don’t Be Tardy star Kim Zolciak’s appearances on the last Real Housewives of Atlanta season that did not go over well. At all. Now Kim is clapping back and channeling Mariah Carey’s infamous “I don’t know her” moment.
Bravolebrities are just like us. They also watch shows on Bravo and have some strong opinions about the cast members. Well, at least a lot of them do. Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid is a very enthusiastic Bravo viewer and she has some very opinionated thoughts about the other shows on the network, particularly all of the drama that went down on the last season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It feels like the fans have been asking for a reboot of The Hills forever and now it is FINALLY happening. There’s no word on who will return for the show or what it is even going to be about at this point, but I will watch every single episode whether I like it or not.
Are they going to re-open Les Deux Nightclub and turn it into a daycare facility for their adorable children? Do all of the cast members even live near each other? There are so many logistical questions, but I don’t even truly care about whether or not this show actually makes sense, but I am so here for it.
