Kelly and Shannon reconnect

It’s obvious that Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd did not make amends filming the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion. They’ve been shading each other left and right ever since.

Recently, Shannon (supposedly) claimed that Rick Leventhal proposed to Kelly with the ring that Jim Bellino gave to his ex-fiancée. Yeah, apparently Jim was engaged to someone other than Alexis Bellino.

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 2, 2019 edition of Monday Morning Tea.

Jill Zarin Says Bethenny Frankel Isn’t Friends With Real Housewives Of New York Outside Of Filming

Even though Jill Zarin got fired from Real Housewives of New York centuries ago and has been begging to come back ever since, she seems to view herself as an expert on the show/its casting decisions. Is anyone surprised that Jill weighed in on Bethenny Frankel’s decision to leave the show? Nope.

Jill hasn’t held an apple in years and she has no relationship with Bethenny, yet here she is sharing some insight. So Jill. Jill dished on Bethenny’s departure from RHONY during a radio interview with another Bravolebrity in the doghouse Jeff Lewis.

Real Housewives Of Orange County Shannon Beador

Truth and consequences have come to Real Housewives Of Orange County. Everything unfolded when Shannon Beador decided to take Gina Kirschenheiter to LA for a little fun in the California sun, but nothing can keep the storm clouds away. Not even a designer makeover and many glasses of champagne!

You can take the Rail (zing!) Housewives Of Orange County to LA, but you can’t take the tacky Orange County out of them. Leave it Kelly Dodd to throw a big ol’ fit in a fancy restaurant. But to be fair: Kelly was getting it from all ends, just like she says, except it’s not from 8 guys. But, 6 Housewives pulling a train of gossip about her sex life. 

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

Last night the Real Housewives Of Orange County tried to have a Pretty Woman moment by taking the distressed and disorganized Gina Kirschenheiter to Rodeo Drive for a makeover, but it ended in tears, tantrums, and tales of trains gone wrong!

I do not FOR ONE SECOND believe the rumor that Kelly Dodd did a train (is that even how you say it?) of 8 guys. I also refuse to look up the proper terminology for “train,” because I did that last week and now I’m getting some suspicious GoogleAds. So thank you Vicki Gunvalson for once again ruining things for everyone.

The most shocking thing about the Trains, Cars, and Terrible Friends saga is that moments after making this proclamation that she knows something very, very terrible about Kelly, Vicki skips out when the rest of the women head to a bar. Vicki pass up free tequila? HUH?

Jill Zarin returns to RHONY for season 9

Say what you will about Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin, but you must admire her persistence. In 2011, Jill was fired from the show along with Kelly Bensimon and Alex McCord. Since then, Jill has been on a quest recapture her Housewife apple. She has made cameo appearances on the show but hasn’t been offered a contract as a full-time Housewife or a Friend of the Housewives.

Jill has dealt with some serious heartache in her personal life. In January of 2018, her beloved husband, and popular fixture on RHONY, Bobby Zarin, passed away after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Bravo cameras rolled outside Bobby’s funeral as Jill and former bestie Bethenny Frankel put aside their differences and seemingly made peace. Of course, many thought that filming at her husband’s funeral was in poor taste. And now, Jill has found love again with Gary Brody.

Arrest Made In Dina Manzo’s 2017 Home Invasion; Dina Admits She Is Already Married

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo and husband David Cantin (Yes- I said husband) have received some welcome news—the arrest of a suspect in their horrific home invasion. Dina and David had just returned home from Audriana Giudice’s first communion in May 2017. Audriana is Teresa Giudice’s daughter and Dina is Audriana’s godmother.

The thieves wore masks during the attack and stole jewelry and cash from their victims. But the couple was also physically assaulted during the incident.

Jeff Lewis And Gage Edward Co-Parenting Relationship Running Into Problems

When Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis announced that he and long-time partner Gage Edward had split in January, many people were shocked. Although we saw the couple struggle with their relationship on the show, the two seemed committed to staying together. And they were both dedicated to daughter Monroe, as well as being involved in business together.

In retrospect, maybe the breakup was inevitable for two people with such different personalities. And living and working together 24/7 would be a challenge for any couple. The period following a breakup is difficult and working out all the details after a split is hard. And now Jeff is revealing some of the co-parenting issues he and Gage are experiencing post-break-up.
