    I'm beginning to think the Real Housewives franchise should be re-named Cast vs. Producers. You know, like those video games our kids play -- Plants vs. Zombies or Monsters vs. Aliens. Yes, I know that one's a movie. BUT. Last night on The Real Housewives of Orange County, newbie cast member Lizzie Rovsek had a terrible, terrible birthday. And it was all Tamra Judge's fault. Or was it? In today's exclusive episode, I've got all the dish, plus new developments with Apollo NidaPhaedra Parks, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

    If I were Dina Manzo, I'd be screaming bloody murder this week. Why? Did you catch what the editors of The Real Housewives of New Jersey did to her this week? It's pretty shocking, and in today's new episode below, I break it all down for you. Also, we've got an extra night of Kim Zolciak's Don't Be Tardy, as well as Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Botched. There's a theme with ALL four shows -- how well do they integrate engineered scenes with genuine reality? Which are the most real? The least? Watch below and I'll give you MY opinion!

    There's a story making the rounds online about Kim Zolciak Biermann allegedly reenacting the birth of her twins. If you haven't read it, take a look -- a good dozen people sent it to me, so I decided to address it in today's exclusive episode below. Also, there's more to deconstruct about season 3, episode 2 of Don't Be Tardy, as well as the second episodes of two new VH1 series, Candidly Nicole and LeAnn & Eddie.

    Whoa. Tell me what you think here, viewers. First, domestic violence should never be condoned at any time, in any venue, including reality television. However, if you are shooting a reality show, and something happens and is dealt with accordingly, do you go ahead and show it? Today's exclusive episode below takes on relationships and marriage from two different angles, the first with FYI's Married at First Sight, episode 3, and the second with episode 7 of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. One guess as to where the violence erupted, but there was a lot of hope as well. Let's discuss.

    Can you call someone an aerialist if they take off their leg and throw it? Well, I'm going to. Last night saw the season 6 finale of The Real Housewives of New York City, and there's lots to discuss. Though I must say, I feel like I should be doing it with a drink in my hand, because it's sort of like attending a wake. If TV shows had them.

    In today's exclusive video, I break down which storylines worked, which ones seemed edited to death, and what was going on under that table? I also compare Aviva Drescher's leg toss to Kelly Bensimon on Scary Island and Teresa Giudice's table flip.

    There were some CRAZY similarities last night between season 9, episode 14 of The Real Housewives of Orange County and the finale episode of Ladies of London. With a side order of Scary Island, because don't we all love comparing these shows?! In today's exclusive video below, I discuss the mistakes made on both sides between Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow, as well as what Tamra Judge had to do with it. But wait!! Over in London, Caprice Bourret is doing the same thing! Let's discuss ...

    Keeping Up With the Kardashians is more fun than The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In today's exclusive episode below, I cover episode 2, season 6 of RHONJ, part one of the Kardashians' Thailand trip, and episode 5 of Botched. Why should Joe Giudice be praying that the judge doesn't see this show prior to their sentencing? Why is Amber Marchese the new fall guy (gal?) and what's UP with Melissa Gorga's rental and Dina Manzo accusing the producers of twisting her words?

We had Kim Zolciak's Don't Be Tardy season 3 premiere as well as the premiere of THREE new shows on VH1, Dating NakedCandidly Nicole, and the one we've all been waiting for since it was announced, LeAnn & Eddie. As in, LeAnn RimesEddie Cibrian, and Real Housewife of Beverly HillsBrandi Glanville. Buckle up people; in today's exclusive video I take on all four shows and I don't hold back.

    Whoa! Reality TV just went to a whole new level. Have you been watching Married at First Sight? OK, I was aware of the show and a little surprised at the press buzz for a brand new show on a brand new network, FYI, rebranded from Biography. Well, this weekend I spent time with literally hundreds of people in the TV and media industry, and EVERYONE is talking about this show. In today's exclusive episode below, I break down what we're seeing (and NOT seeing) so far, as well as episode 6 of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.

    Today we're mixing up the Real Deal format a little bit. In addition to coverage of what we saw last night on reality television with Celebrity Wife Swap season 3, episode 11 and The Real Housewives of New York City season 6, episode 19, those two worlds collided! Of course, that means a Real Housewife swapped lives on ABC. I happened to spend the weekend with Jill Zarin and Jenna von Oy and have exclusive interviews with both ladies about their swap, as well as some juicy RHONY backstory and reunion dish from LuAnn de Lesseps. It's all in today's video!
