Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

Luann-De-Lesseps-Looking-Side-RHONY

On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley take it to the streets, heading to D.C. for the Women’s March, while back in NYC Ramona Singer shellacs her hair back in a tragic Blonde-Ambition-meets-Pinot-and-Ambien look and throws a party with the shadiest guest list she can summon. Ramona’s informant friend Missy, who accused Tom D’Agostino of snogging her in a limo while concurrently being engaged to Luann De Lesseps, is resurrected from her UES cryogenic chamber for the evening to confront the recently married couple. Meanwhile, Tinsley Mortimer continues planning her escape, and Sonja Morgan tries to understand what the hell Frenchie is saying.

We begin with Tinsley and Carole meeting for lunch, where they break Tinsley’s sad situation down: She’s living with an oppressive tyrant and needs to move out. Her mom is coming into town to help her apartment hunt, in fact. Carole and Tinsley were also invited to the Winter Botanical Garden, which solidified them as new “pals” in the social rags. It also helped Tinsley’s socialite comeback tour, which she still sadly imagines is real.

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Regency Reunion

Carole thinks Tinsley should just reinvent herself completely rather than attempt to capture the distant past. But Tinsley wants to keep her long curls and fake lashes and bad choices in men! So, she’s sticking to the plan.

Over at Sonja’s, Frenchie is opening a bottle of wine in his new house. Which is also Sonja’s house. Which is a part-time situation, claims Sonja, because he technically also lives in Paris. Sonja isn’t used to this new living arrangement quite yet, as it requires sharing space and closed-door crapping. Two things Sonja doesn’t have the time nor the inclination to prioritize.

Frenchie-Sonja-Morgan-Bed-RHONY

As she and Frenchie lay in bed, he encourages Sonja to let her friends talk! Who cares about the world judging them and their communal defecation rites? He does care about Sonja’s other boyfriend, Rocco, though – but only up to a point. He doesn’t mind if she still sees him because he also has three extra girlfriends. “I love the way you think,” sighs Sonja, who’s found her match – someone who doesn’t give a rip who she smooches in public. (Wait – are Rocco and Luann essentially the same person?!)

At Ramona’s, she’s cheering her newly-renovated face apartment, planning a cocktail party to celebrate. She’s inviting all of the ladies – including Bethenny Frankel, who she claims to “still like.” Um, despite hating her?

Apartment hunting time! (Oh please, show us some amazing real estate, RHONY. You owe us for dragging us through the Tom/Luann saga for A YEAR!!!) Tinsley and her mom are on Bleeker and 11th, checking out a 1,500-square foot, $9k per month property. You know, just a little 4-bedroom crash pad for a girl to rest her curls between step and repeats. Tinsley quickly glosses over the fact that she’s got a job and TONS of family money, so cost is no issue. And this, my friends, is why Sonja Tremont Morgan deeply resents young Tins. Girlfriend has not fallen on hard times, no matter what she claims.

Hooray! Carole’s long-suffering, broke-down couch is about to get recovered! It’s been a long time coming, but, as her fabric consultant suggests, whatever fabric they use, it will be destroyed instantly by these animals unless she gets this litter box under control. Carole dumbly suggests wrapping tinfoil around the couch feet as a preventative measure.

When Adam walks in, Carole reminds us how happy she is living alone again. She also wants to get the last of Adam’s possessions out of her space – Buddha heads, food containers, sh*t in the corners of closets – IT ALL MUST GO! Adam laughs off her pushiness, reminding us that 1) maybe he truly just doesn’t give a toss about this relationship, or 2) Carole is paying for his new apartment. I refuse to accept a third possibility!

Dorinda Medley Has Some Etiquette Advice For Sonja Morgan

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

In her latest blog entry, Dorinda Medley gushes over Luann de Lesseps‘ wedding and Bethenny‘s awesome Christmas gathering, but has some strong words of advice for co-star Sonja Morgan. The Real Housewives of New York star is just glad to be back in the city and away from that hot mess of a girls’ trip.

She starts off, “So we’re back in NYC, and I could not be happier. I will deal with the disaster that is the Berkshires when I go back for Christmas, but until then, I am just going to try to enjoy the rest of the holiday season and forget about it. Onto a different kind of holiday party, a Skinnygirl extravaganza! Bethenny clearly went for it with this holiday party. I think the best part (besides my face on a Christmas ornament) was the Skinnygirl ice sculpture. How often in your life can you drink out of an ice luge, see your face on an ornament, learn how to open an oyster, and drink eggnog out of a chocolate chip cup?” 

Dorinda then blogs some advice for house guest Sonja, “The only thing that puts a damper on the whole thing is Sonja eye rolling when I spoke about the Berkshires and the lack of apologies. Of course, she rolls her eyes the same way she rolled up my lingerie from my late husband after wearing it without permission and leaving it in the bedroom. For someone who is trying to be the epitome of etiquette, word of advice: ‘Clean borrowed items before you give them back.’ Or how about this one: ‘Don’t touch the host’s clothes when you’re staying in her home.’

But Dorinda is all about moving on and shaking things off. She turns to a lighter moment: Luann’s marriage to Tom D’Agostino. “Onto the happiest part of the season, Lu’s wedding! The whole event was magical, and I couldn’t be happier for them both. It is true. I did not fully read the schedule handed to me upon arrival, so I was a bit late for the bridesmaids’ luncheon/makeup/pictures, but in the end it all worked out beautifully and the evening went off without a hitch. There was not one single detail Lu did not think of, and she looked stunning! (I thought I looked pretty good, too, but it’s about the bride, right?!)”

“I hope you all enjoyed my sober speech at Lu and Tom’s NYC cocktail party for everyone who was not invited. I just think it is time to now settle in as Mr. and Mrs. D, and NO MORE CELEBRATIONS! I’m tired!”

Tonight is an all new episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, “Sonja’s love triangle gets more complicated as things heat up with ‘Frenchie.’ Meanwhile, Tinsley goes apartment hunting. Carole and Adam bicker over items he left behind in her apartment. Fredrik and Bethenny look over her apartment as they plan to put it on the market. Carole and Dorinda go to Washington DC for the Women’s March. Ramona throws a party at her apartment with a surprising guest list.”

Join us here for the virtual viewing party at 9/8 C!

Bravo Executive Producer Explains What Makes A Good Cast Member And Why Housewives Are Fired; Hints At Drama On Vanderpump Rules & Real Housewives Of New York

Original Source: http://www.realitytea.com/2017/06/20/bravo-executive-producer-explains-makes-good-cast-member-housewives-fired-hints-drama-vanderpump-rules-real-housewives-new-york/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=bravo-executive-producer-explains-makes-good-cast-member-housewives-fired-hints-drama-vanderpump-rules-real-housewives-new-york

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

Jill Zarin

As much as I am entertained by pretty much everything I watch on Bravo, I can’t help being even more intrigued by what happens behind the scenes to make my favorite reality shows happen. I want to know if Housewives actually do “amicably part ways” with the network or if that is just a go-to line, like I suspect.

Even though I watch Bravo whenever possible, I still can’t get enough content and I want to know more about how it all works.

When it comes down to it, I have a million and a half questions about Bravo shows. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to ask any of them, but I did get a few answers recently when I listened to Bravo’s Daily Dish podcast with Executive Producer Ryan Flynn as a guest. He had a lot of valuable and interesting insight during the interview.

He even had some good teasers about some upcoming episodes. When asked about Vanderpump Rules, he revealed, “The number of ‘what the f-cks’ in the first first two weeks of shooting has been unbelievable. I’m not going to give away any spoilers.” I really wish that he did though. He also talked about the upcoming Mexico vacation on Real Housewives of New York. He teased, “It’s going to be one of the most epic shit shows in RHONY history.” YES. I am so here for that. I. Cannot. Wait.

Sometimes I watch Bravo and feel like someone in charge understands exactly who I want to see and that’s because they really do pay attention. Ryan shared, “I rely very much on all of you who do a great job every week publishing the Bravo Social Sentiment Report – which thankfully you guys give us a little snap chat of what people are saying about our shows on Facebook and Twitter.”

“While it may not dictate a lot of our creative edit, because a lot of times, we are already far ahead in edit, it does give me a good sense of [knowing] if the things we are finding interesting are interesting to our viewers.” Thank God someone is reading my tweets… hopefully. He added, “It’s always good to know who’s taking their knocks because it’s often a conversation to have with a production company about how’s a housewife doing given that she just got raked over the coals on social media for last night’s episode.”

RELATED: Heather Dubrow Quits The Real Housewives Of Orange County

So when do they know to give a cast member the ax? Ryan maintains, “I have to say when it’s time to say goodbye, it’s more often than not a mutual understanding.” Really? I find that so hard to believe. It’s tough for me to imagine most of these people relinquishing an opportunity for self-promotion.

Still, he insisted, “Everyone knows the time is just right.” Sure, but are these people willing to accept that or are they forced out? He explained, “Whether it’s a first season Housewife that just didn’t click and never sort of found the rhythm or whether it’s someone who’s been on many season who’s just a very different person from when we started with them. It’s a process and it’s a discussion. Not everyone goes quietly into the night. Sometimes there can be some understandably hurt feelings or confusion.”

Other than Jill Zarin, I would love specifics on who that applies to. Obviously this includes all the ladies who were offered the “friend of” role instead of “Housewife” and refused to take the downgrade.

Then he said something that I can’t help finding flaws in: “It’s always interesting that the shows and the franchises are always bigger than one person. When we all think, “We can never move on without ‘fill in the blank,’ somehow we do. We find new lives, new stories, and new challenges with new cast and current Housewives.” That might be true for some cities, but  Real Housewives of New Jersey waited over a year to film a new season while Teresa Giudice was away in prison. Why? Because the show could not survive without her. For the most part, there isn’t a central cast member like that in the other shows, but I do feel like there are exceptions to his belief that the show is “always bigger than one person.”

Teresa Giudice & Melissa Gorga Celebrate Milania Giudice’s Graduation And Their Kids’ Last Day Of School

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

In my opinion the biggest star on Real Housewives of New Jersey is Teresa Giudice’s daughter Milania Giudice. She always steals the show and every scene with her is hilarious. If anyone on RHONJ deserves to be celebrated it’s Milania. Plus she just graduated fifth grade which is a big deal. Props to my girl.

Not only did Milania have a big day, but her little sister Audriana Giudice and her cousins Joey and Gino Gorga had their last day of school today. Clearly things are still harmonious between the Giudice and Gorga families since both Tre and Melissa Gorga celebrated the end of the school year with their cute kids at the lake.

I love how the Jersey Housewives are all about family. They have the cutest, most hilarious kids too. So I live for it whenever they appear on the show. Unfortunately, the fandom hasn’t been blessed with new Real Housewives of New Jersey episodes for what feels like ages so we have been missing out on the Giudice and Gorga kids.

Thankfully both Melissa and Teresa are all about their social media game and have shared some photos with Milania, Audriana, Gino, and (the breakout cutie of last season) little Joey celebrating the last day of school and starting summer on the right note. If you don’t want to go through the trouble of social media creeping, don’t worry about it because I have you covered. Check out the youngest Giudice and Gorga kids in the photo gallery.

The Southern Charm Cast Films Season 4 Reunion – Photos

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

Southern-Charm-Season-4-Reunion

We are days away from finale episode of Southern Charm’s fourth season, but it ain’t over til it’s over. We still have the reunion episode to look forward to, or if it’s juicy enough: multiple reunion episodes. The cast gathered on Tuesday to June 20, 2017, to film the reunion in New York City with Andy Cohen.

I’m yearning for a showdown between Kathryn Dennis and Landon Clements – with Kathryn coming out victorious of course. Then I’m sure the cast will gang up on Craig Conover for his life choices, as per usual. Shep Rose will take some heat for his “love triangle” with Austen Kroll and Chelsea Meissner. Cameran Eubanks will address her pregnancy. We all know the talking points, but hopefully there is more. I am looking for something explosive: i.e. Thomas Ravenel and Landon finally saying that they hooked up.

Unfortunately there are no spoilers, previews, or any other scoop about what went down since they just filmed it, but some of the cast members did post some pictures getting ready to film and showing off their completed looks. They all look nice, but hopefully they didn’t act too nice – otherwise, I’ll just settle for a one-part reunion episode.

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap: The Love Boat

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap - Flirting With Danger

Below Deck Mediterranean Recap - Flirting With Danger

Another week, another hook up with the Below Deck Mediterranean crew and this time, the professional lines between crew and charter guests start to blur. But before we get to all that, we rejoin what I thought was an episode of The Bachelorette: Croatian Seas Edition, starring Malia White and her number one suitor, Adam Glick.

Adam sulkily leaves the crew’s night out because he is having a “bad day”, which included refusing to adhere to food preferences in the meals, telling Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier that she had a resting bitch face, lying to Captain Sandy Yawn, and what else? Oh yeah, just being an all-around douche. Sorry, no sympathy here for the guy who thinks a charter guest needs to be punished repeatedly for simply asking him to omit onions from his meals. But all of these bad boy chef antics are like an aphrodisiac to Malia, who chases after him so they can sit next to the hot tub and make out before Adam needs another diaper change or nap or something equally baby-ish. What does Malia still see in him? Is she just in it for the omelets he’s whipping up special for her each morning? All I can assume is that she’s young and stupid because at this point, you would have to be.

Back at the Croatian club, where everyone else has stayed behind, Hannah is just drunk enough to unleash how annoyed she is with Christine “Bugsy” Drake for always stepping on her Chief Stew toes. There to listen is Whiner in Chief, Lauren Cohen, who is so starved for anyone to like her, she agrees with Hannah wholeheartedly by nodding her head and telling her that she hopes that one day, she will be half the Chief Stew Hannah is. Oh lord, does Lauren not know how this all works? By the end of charter season, she will be hawking flat tummy tea on Instagram and desperately trying to get on shows like Famously Single if, I repeat IF she’s lucky. Sigh, but OK, Lauren, reach for the stars, I guess.

The crew arrives back at the boat and our favorite goon, Bobby Giancola decides that he is all riled up about how Malia is playing them all. Not only did she kiss Adam AND Wesley Wiz Walton but she also had the nerve to make Bobby have a crush on her! Isn’t that a stone-able offense in Croatia? Poor Bobby and his little pea brain can’t compute that Malia simply doesn’t like him. I mean, this is not that hard, buddy. Nevertheless, he continues to complain to bunk mate and the one guy on the boat who isn’t after Malia and couldn’t care less, Max Hagley. Poor Max, all he is trying to do is go to bed and he has to hear Bobby yammering on about how he can’t be the third person to make out with Malia.

The next day, reality starts to set in for Adam that he is on Captain Sandy’s sh*t list and he needs to get his act together. He starts by apologizing to Hannah about calling her a name and she makes sure to also let him know her main issue is that he undermined her in front of her staff by saying Bugsy should be chief stew instead. Adam apologizes for that as well and the conversation is done with a terse “okay” from Hannah. She still doesn’t trust him and I don’t blame her – Adam is next level weirdo.

bugs

Bugsy also decides she needs to sit down with Hannah and pulls her aside to get to the bottom of why she is being given the cold shoulder. She immediately tells Hannah that she thinks what Adam said was unprofessional and it made her uncomfortable but I guess she just didn’t think it was worthy of speaking up at the time? Regardless of who she is friends with, I think she could have said something, anything in that moment so that Hannah wasn’t just being berated in front of an audience. They leave the conversation with Bugsy rolling her eyes about how insecure Hannah is for letting this stuff bother her. If Hannah is so insecure for being bullied by a crew member, then what does that make Bugsy for being upset that she’s getting the cold shoulder? I’ll wait.

It’s time to meet our new charter guests and woohoo, we finally have a hot guy on board! Did I say hot guy? I meant A GUY who isn’t Bobby, Wiz, or Adam. So I probably have my sea goggles on but right now that’s good enough for me. Just keep this guy away from Malia, OK?

While the girls are busy wagging their tongues…
