I am so happy that our friends over at Reality Tea outed the Kardashians last week in their manufacturing of the Kris Humphries/Kim Kardashian story and Reality Tea outed the Kardashians so well that nobody, not even the Kardashians, could dispute it. In fact, our friends at Reality Tea did such an outstanding job that they made the national headlines themselves for doing such a good job of outing the Kardashians fake, made-for-tv reality show, introducing the audience to the real facts, not the reality facts, behind the Kardadhian “lying machine”.
Here’s the Reality Tea story, in case you missed it: http://www.realitytea.com/2012/01/14/photos-proof-that-kim-kardashians-reality-show-is-fake-scene-with-kris-jenner-was-staged/
Now, lets talk about the Bravo lying machine, shall we?
You know, for the longest time Bravo had us all fooled and we’d get so sucked up into the drama of the shows that all of us bloggers would be out there creating our own drama based on the drama we were presented with in the shows…and Bravo just loved it.
…because the more we bloggers blogged about the drama, the more we drove the ratings up and the more bloggers out there talking about the shows, the higher the advertising fees Bravo could fetch. This is why I always joked that Bravo paid us bloggers well…
…but now I think it’s time to out Bravo, don’t you?
If you’re saying “what is Lady Brooks talking about?”, I don’t blame you. It’s a fair question and I’m going to explain.
In the last episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta there were a lot of lovely scenes and elements that we could blog about for days, but it was all overshadowed when NeNe decided to invite the felon, Marla Hampton, on the trip with the other girls without disclosing this to anyone except the viewing audience.
Of course we all know that NeNe should have asked the Hostess of the trip, Candi, whether she could bring her friend, Marla. Of course we all know that NeNe should have asked how the other girls would feel, considering Marla’s criminal record.
People, the reason why NeNe didn’t ask Candi if bringing Marla was “okay” was because Bravo suggested that NeNe do this and even suggested the script she should use and a whole part of the script was that Marla be the last one to “arrive” at the airport in her separate limo so we could see all the gasps from the other women, number 1, and so we could see how Candi and the others handle this uninvited guest, number 2. In fact, even the luncheon at Marla’s house with NeNe was staged to set this whole scene up.
What really happened is that Bravo had a little meeting with NeNe (and this is why she thinks she’s so important to them) and outlined the plot twist and suggested how she should present “her little scheme of bringing Marla on the trip”, then all the scenes were tapped to follow this little plot line in which Marla and NeNe pretended to have this random luncheon wherein we watch NeNe hatch her (Bravo’s) plan.
How do we know this? I think we got our first glimpse into Bravo’s plot-writing during the filming of the upcoming season of New Jersey when our friend Danielle Staub said that Bravo asked her to make a cameo appearance at a restaurant where the girls were going to be shooting a restaurant scene and, when Danielle declined, they brought someone from Melissa Gorga’s past who implied that Melissa had a stripper and that “he” had even paid for Melissa’s boobs. You recall all this. It was actually this staged confrontation that caused Jacqueline Laurita to abruptly quit the franchise because she saw that Bravo would stop at nothing, including digging into someone’s past, to create drama and she didn’t want her past, regardless of what it was, to be dug up. I don’t blame her.
I know you remember all this drama that played out in real life enough to know that Bravo is manipulating the scenes to manufacture drama.
All this became obvious to us, the audience, when NeNe was talking to the camera and, I’ve got news for NeNe and the Bravo executives…NeNe can’t act. She’s as transparent as the day is long and, given now our prior experience with Bravo and this fake manufacturing of drama for ratings…Bravo’s cover has been blown. When NeNe started using the phrase “talls versus the smalls” we knew the whole thing was staged and now Bravo has, yet again, been outed because immediately after the episode Bravo Andy used the same phrase “talls versus smalls” in his Watch What Happens Live show.
And here’s what I’ve got to say about that:
Bravo and Bravo Andy…your game is up. We know your number and we know you’re liars now, so you can’t fool us anymore. Ok, we admit, you fooled us for a season or two, but your viewers are not some “little people” who are so stupid we can’t figure this stuff out. First of all, we weren’t born yesterday and we’re mostly an educated and intelligent audience. I think this whole reality show nonsense is about to blow up in your faces and I’m going to spend a good deal of time talking to prior cast members and doing my due-diligence so we can out your whole charade. We just don’t like the millions of dollars you are making at our expense and until we start seeing a paycheck of our own…your game is up.
How do you like “them apples”?
Everybody knows that it’s rude to bring an uninvited guest to a party, much less a trip, so we aren’t even going to comment about all the manufactured NeNe/Marla drama. (Of course, you know I’m just speculating here, since I don’t have a video of the executives hatching this whole plan with NeNe)
In fact, here’s some other food for thought…would it be a surprise to any of us if we were told that the Bravo executives pulled Candi aside and told her about Marla’s background so that Candi could disclose this information to the audience?…and, do we have any doubt that Marla was specifically selected because of her criminal past, all in an effort to create a season of “drama”? I’m so anxious to hear your thoughts on this whole charade.
