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.
All Shannon Beador wanted to do was plan a relaxing and healing trip for her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars. The Housewives journeyed to Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa to get their zen on. Their trip would include healing time, spa treatments, and much-needed bonding. What could go wrong?
Kelly Dodd is the answer to that question. From the moment that she arrived, RHOC’s resident hot-head was sarcastic and cranky. She was not looking forward to seeing her newly demoted enemy, Vicki Gunvalson, who was scheduled to arrive the next day.
We begin tonight’s episode of Lindsay Lohan’s Beach club with Lindsay Lohan sitting down with business partner, friend, creative director, and all-around boss bitch Panos Spentzos, and the new hires to have a little meeting.
She decides to hand out paper and pens. Then, she asks everyone to write down their intentions.
“What are your goals if you want to work with Lohan? What do you want out of life?” she asks the group. <sigh> This seems a little too cutesy for me. Can you picture Lisa Vanderpump asking the workers at SUR to write their thoughts and feelings down?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster shared this “vault,” adding, “The vault was not a threat but rather a reminder that I know a lot of things about all the cast members that I would never dare to expose! The vault in my culture means: a safe and vulnerable place in our hearts where we share a certain integrity and keep our friends well being as our first priority. I don’t feel the need to share private matters of other women or their families because I care for them as human beings. Exposing private matters to the public would just make me feel like a distrustful human being. We don’t need to put others down in order to build ourselves up. I am not interested in competing with anyone. I hope we’re all successful…. in whatever our personal journey might be…. #RHOBH #TheVault #EnoughIsEnough #DrawingALineInTheSand.”

Are any of y’all watching Livin’ Lozada? I have to admit, I’m intrigued, but not intrigued enough to commit to programming my DVR. I got my fill of Evelyn Lozada on Basketball Wives, and while I wish her well, I just can’t swap the image of her charging barefoot across a table at the Kentucky Derby with her reveling in the calmer side of family life. Not saying she didn’t make a total and genuine transition, but fool me twice, shame on me!
Those of you who are tuning in are aware that Evelyn recently suffered a miscarriage, the aftermath of which was featured on her new OWN reality show. My heart goes out to her for her loss, as well as being open enough to share it with her fans. Hopefully her experience will help others facing the same tragedy.

Admit it. You knew she couldn’t stay away from the cameras for very long! Evelyn Lozada is back on the small screen, starring in a new series premiering July 11 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN. Et tu, Oprah? Livin’ Lozada is being touted as a docu-series, which is basically the term all the cool networks are using these days when trying to promote yet another reality show that most certainly will not be wrought with baseless drama and fake story lines or senseless violence involving throwing bottles at co-stars’ heads and literally scaling dining tables in a single leap to attack a former friend. Who wants to watch that? No, seriously…who does? Bueller?
The controversial former Basketball Wives star is no stranger to the limelight even though her spin-off with ex-husband Chad
Ochocinco Johnson didn’t last as long as their short marriage due to his domestic abuse. The new show promises a softer side of Evelyn. It will follow her relationship with her fiance, majillionaire Dodgers baseball star Carl Crawford while she juggles being a business woman and mother to twenty-two year old daughter Shaniece and one year old son Carl Leo…who is the most precious child ever, by the way!

Holly Robinson Peete, of old school 21 Jump Street fame (yeah!) and husband & former quarterback Rodney Peete are getting their own docuseries (aka reality show) on OWN. The working titled production, For Peete’s Sake, will “follow the lives of husband and wife duo Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete as they juggle their careers with their family life,” according to blackcelebkids.com.
Why is OWN taking an interest in the Peete family, which includes the couples’ four children – twins RJ and Ryan Elizabeth (17), middle son Robinson (13), and the youngest, Roman (10) – and Holly’s widowed mother, Dolores? Well, according to OWN president Sheri Salata, “As longtime members of ‘The Oprah Show’ family, we’ve watched Holly and Rodney navigate successful careers in show business, a devoted marriage and a growing, love-filled family.” Salata adds, “This new series gives an entertaining and honest look at a modern family that just happens to live in the celebrity spotlight.” Salata also tweeted yesterday, “Team Peete is ready to roll!” after Holly had posted a photo on her Twitter account of her hubby and her hanging with the Lady Who Rules Us All, Oprah Winfrey.
