Real Housewives Auctioning Reunion Dresses To Benefit Coronavirus Relief

You can now own a piece of Real Housewives history! Former Real Housewives of Miami star Ana Quincoces has called on housewives from all cities to donate some of their most iconic reunion dresses to be auctioned off for coronavirus relief efforts.

Housewives from all over the country answered Ana’s call and donated some amazing reunion dresses. This is such a fun and creative way to give back to our frontline workers. If you’re a Housewives superfan, you don’t want to miss this auction. Ana has collected over 30 pieces from not only the Housewives, but also Andy Cohen himself!

#WeSayThanks To Reality Stars Giving Back During Coronavirus

Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.

#WeSayThanks

We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.

We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!

Dorinda Medley Tinsley Mortimer RHONY Real Housewives Of New York

This one-sided feud between Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer is making it very tough to watch Real Housewives of New York this season. She really has it out for Tinsley. And, ironically enough, instead of making Tinsley look bad, she just makes herself look bad. On top of that, it just gets worse week after week.

If you thought Dorinda learned something after watching these episodes, think again. That is not the case. The shade just won’t stop. Yes, Tinsley is pretty guarded for a reality TV star. However, that’s a way better alternative than being a reality TV star who verbally attacks her co-stars during every single episode. Sorry, girl, Tinsley is winning this feud. She’s not even fighting back and Dorinda is still going in on the future Mrs. Kluth.

Elyse Slaine Real Housewives of New York RHONY

Elyse Slaine is a bit of a mystery on this season of Real Housewives of New York City. She just showed up one day with very little explanation as to who she is or what she is doing there.  She appears in almost every group scene with no mention as to who actually invited her. According to Elyse, that is because she was never meant to be on the show, she really did just show up one day to film with Ramona Singer. Production liked her and asked her to keep showing up. That explains why her introduction has been so awkward, but it still makes her come off as sort of creepy. She is mostly just there, silently staring in the background, kind of like some judgy Upper East Side Morticia Adams.

Anytime Elyse does speak, she talks very quietly and calmly, and almost always states the most rational opinion. It is as though she is doing her best to come across as the voice of reason. What she is really saying is, “Please do not think that I am crazy like these women, listen to how calm I am.” And she definitely seems like a smart, put-together woman. But just the fact that she has been friends with Ramona for years implies that there must be some cray cray going on behind her sleek facade. Now she is even claiming that she introduced OG cast members Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel.

This Week’s Schedule Of Throwback Bravo Episodes- Real Housewives Of DC, Timber Creek Lodge, & More

Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.

Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.

Leah McSweeney Defends Her Controversial Statements Against The #MeToo Movement She Made Prior To Joining Real Housewives Of New York

Leah McSweeney has already made quite the splash as a freshman housewife on Real Housewives of New York. She was introduced to us as a friend of Tinsley Mortimer but Leah has made plenty of her own friends. Despite a rough start, Leah has bonded with Dorinda Medley. According to Leah in the latest episode, she “keeps it real”. Luann de Lesseps dropped the Countess act and showed up at Leah’s apartment with food when she was under the weather. Leah claimed kindred spirits with Lu due to their past with drinking and I can actually see that. Even the notoriously bristly Ramona Singer has seemed to take a shine to Leah. Go figure.So it looks like the cast is really taking to Leah’s approachable yet outspoken persona.

But Leah doesn’t just speak her mind when she’s on RHONY. She hosts her own podcast, Improper Etiquette, and was a contributing columnist for Penthouse magazine. We previously reported that Leah has made some controversial statements in the past. But instead of an apology tour, Leah is defending herself and what she said.

Real Housewives Of New York Sonja Morgan Tinsley Mortimer

According to Ramona Singer all the ladies on Real Housewives Of New York are going through a transition, and have found themselves single. Which is true. Before Dorinda Medley dumped John Mahdessian, she was the only woman on this show in a relationship. Unless you count Tinsley Mortimer dating “Bruce.”

Who does Tinsley think she’s fooling? Bruce was a made-up man to shut Dale Mercer up and hopefully make Scott Kluth jealous.

Anyway, it’s fall in New York and the weather is wonderful so all the ladies are meeting outside in various parks to take walks and gossip. If this were a RomCom they’d keep bumping into each other on random benches and eventually fall in love. But this is Real Housewives, so if they ran into each other on random benches they’d actually just find the other person talking shit about them to their other friends, then they’d fall into hate.

Elyse Slaine Shades Barbara Kavovit; Explains Why She Isn’t Full-Time On Real Housewives Of New York & Says She’s Donating 100% Of Salary To Animal Rescue

It was a little surprising to see Elyse Slaine do a confessional interview during the latest episode of Real Housewives of New York. Who even knew she was a cast member? We got no introduction to meeting her. Zero backstory. Truthfully, she just seemed like Ramona Singer’s level-headed plus one.

So, what happened? Were she and Leah McSweeney fighting for that full-time spot on the show? Apparently, not. According to Elyse she was never even supposed to be on the show. So, no, she did not get demoted. Instead, she claims that production just kept asking for more Elyse. Let’s let her explain the situation herself.
