    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!

    Kim Kardashian owes Khloe Kardashian a HUGE apology. I mean, I guess technically she owes it to her in the past, so there's no real means of accomplishing this unless Kanye West can hook her up with the Doctor and his TARDIS -- a thing that seems vastly unlikely. This week on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the vacation to Thailand utterly fell apart due to a variety of factors. Khloe wanted to leave early, and Kim, annoyed and upset by this, expressed herself like every grown woman made infamous by the size of her bottom and her sex tape -- she basically called her sister a whore.

    Okay, okay, the 'w' bomb wasn't lobbed -- Kim isn't THAT tone deaf. But what she said was so much worse! Khloe was desperate to go home and take care of Rob Kardashian (who she feels a lot of responsibility for). Plus, the vacation hadn't proved to be the respite from the grief of her divorce that she planned. I don't blame her for wanting to go home, but Kim did.

    Sister Wives may be over for the season, but that doesn't mean the drama between the wives is finished! We saw that was true in tonight's special "tell-all" episode. What started off seeming like a dull but sweet recap of the just-completed fifth season quickly took a turn when Christine Brown stormed off the stage in the middle of an interview. We'd expect this from the Housewives, but the Sister Wives? Never.

    I'm making it sound like Christine was moments away from flipping a table, which isn't remotely true -- but she was clearly upset. Though her polite request to leave was never brought up again while the cameras rolled, it was suggested via voice-over that Robyn Brown's current plans for pregnancy might be upsetting Christine. Robyn apparently insisted that no questions about more children for the family be asked for the remainder of the evening.

    Oh my God, this show. This week, on LeAnn & Eddie, Eddie Cibrian continued to behave as though he were the star of a romantic comedy called Sexy Turtlenecks, Sex-Having, and Merlot and LeAnn Rimes continued to try and make it appear as though her life is complex and her personality gripping and enigmatic. NONE OF THESE GOALS WERE ACHIEVED.

    My biggest take-away this week was that LeAnn "accidentally" taking the girls to a gay country bar where she was "dragged on stage to sing" might be the fakest thing I have ever seen: And I watch reality television professionally, so really that is saying something. Under the guise of returning to her country roots, LeAnn and her girlfriends went to a gay country bar where they did several Jell-o shots. Because ... that is authentically Southern? IT IS NOT. I went to college in Tennessee and I can thoroughly assure you that if you aren't sipping whiskey, you can see yourself out.

    Leah Remini's show It's All Relative keeps getting funnier -- because Leah makes it her business to surround herself with hilarious people. Let this be a lesson to us all. This week she and her daughter's nanny Trish were running errands. If you or I were doing this, it would be totally ho-hum. But because of the personalities involved here, it was a hilarious delight. Whyfore? Because Trish is a total hoarder and Leah caught her in the act. Bling THAT, Trish! 

    This episode could have become a "very special episode" so easily. The look on Leah's face when she saw the mountains and mountains of stuff blocking Trish's house was priceless. I seriously thought she was just moments away from dialing up the folks at Intervention or Hoarders to see if they could get Trish some help. Luckily, she addressed the situation in the least conflict-inducing way possible: With comedy.

    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 ...

    On the finale of Ladies of London tonight, nothing could have worked out more perfectly. Caprice Bourret got exactly what she wanted: Two healthy babies and the hell away from Caroline Stanbury. It was the most satisfying conclusion to the beef that had been brewing all season long. That said, I wish the final confrontation between Caroline and Caprice had been a little less, well, British.

    In America, if you are on a reality T.V. show and you demand that someone leave your house, it doesn't end a fight. Exhibit this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Heather Dubrow banishing Shannon Beador from her stoop didn't end their feud, it inflamed it. That wasn't the case here. Caroline said that if Caprice insisted on calling her a bully in her own home, she could leave. Caprice left ... and that was it. Things were fine! Caprice lost the battle, the friendship is over, and everyone moved on.

    This week's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was intense. Oh sure, it kind of always is what with all the drama constantly brewing betwixt the ladies. But this week the devil came home to roost, which is a fancy and rhetorically lazy of saying that Tamra Judge finally got what was coming to her. Her son Ryan announced that he was moving away and getting married and she about lost her mind. 

    Seriously, it was a little creepy. While I am all for Tamra finally feeling the pangs of misery and unhappiness that she has caused others to endure (not even hyperbole, y'all), I could have done without her creepy insistence that her son was choosing to marry a woman who was "just like her." Guess what? Blond hair and a job do not make you Tamra's double. I say this as ... a blond with a job. You kind of can't blame Ryan for wanting to get the eff out of town.
