Sonja Morgan Backpedals After Comments About Kristen Taekman's Husband: I Have 'Egg on My Face'


People.com:
Sonja Morgan says she believed she was speaking in confidence when she said she wasn't surprised costar Kristen Taekman's husband Josh had an Ashley Madison account.

"Egg on my face," the Real Housewives of New York City star admitted to NBC New York after a Page Six item quoted her as saying she "could see [the scandal] coming."

Speaking to NBC New York, Morgan distanced herself from Page Six story, which quoted her as saying she "didn't like the way he was treating her" and that Taekman's husband "chipped away at her self-esteem."

Morgan, 51, says she was at a magazine shoot, "and there were a lot of people there from the news, covering that event, and I was talking to someone – I thought privately." 


She added, "I was just saying what everyone was saying, that they weren't surprised. But I would never get in her business like that, normally. I didn't mean for that to happen."

Morgan said she should "know better" than to speak in that manner but acknowledged that she has not yet apologized to Taekman: "I probably should do that, I should text her," she said. "I know she knows I'm here if she wants to talk, but I don't tend to stick my nose in other people's business – though they do that to me!"

Vicki Gunvalson and Daughter Briana Have Heated Confrontation Over Brooks Ayers


EOnline.com:

Vicki Gunvalson has never really been shy about having cameras around—they were on her when she learned of her mother's death—but in the exclusive Real Housewives of Orange County sneak peek below, Vicki does not want the cameras on her as she talks about (now ex) boyfriend Brooks Ayers with her daughter Briana Culberson.

Briana has made it very clear she wants nothing to do with Brooks and does not want him around her or her kids, so when she returns to Orange County, she is not going to stay with Vicki.

"I'm trying to be nice about it, I'm not going to kick somebody out of their own bed when they have cancer," Briana says after Vicki tries to get her daughter to take the discussion off camera. "Why are you overreacting so bad?"

Vicki doesn't want her daughter staying at a hotel when she's in town. But as Briana has made it clear, she won't be around Brooks. "You moved somebody into your house that I didn't want around my family, so this is where we're at," Briana says. "I'm being respectful by saying I'm not going to kick anybody out of their bed!"

Vicki says Brooks travels all the time, so he'll be fine. But Briana, a nurse, says somebody with stage 3 cancer and undergoing chemotherapy should not be traveling around, so she won't force him out of his bed.

This isn't the first time the mother-daughter duo have gotten heated over Brooks. Briana was not a fan of Brooks from the start, but things came to a head during a Real Housewives of Orange County reunion where she revealed a recording exists featuring Brooks telling her husband to hit her.

Cynthia Faces Possible Demotion For Allegedly Kicking Porsha Williams In Stomach


TMZ.com:
Cynthia Bailey didn't even make it a full season, and she's already on the verge of following in Porsha Williams' footsteps -- as in, getting demoted. 

In the wake of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fight -- where Cynthia kicked Porsha -- production sources tell us show honchos are reviewing footage of the incident and weighing their options for discipline.

TMZ broke the story ... Porsha and Cynthia got into it while shooting a scene on a boat -- Porsha called Cynthia a bitch repeatedly ... until CB snapped and unleashed a kick

We're told producers want to see just how bad (or good, for ratings) the fight was ... and there's a possibility Cynthia could be demoted to the dreaded 'friend of the cast' title -- as opposed to full cast member. And yes, that would mean a cut in pay too.

As for why PW's neck isn't on the line? We're told there's no rule against antagonizing -- hell, that's the meat of the show -- but getting physical crosses the line.

This is old hat for Porsha ... who got bumped down after her epic Kenya Moore brawl. She's hoping to earn a promotion this season.
If Cynthia does end up getting demoted, her and husband Peter will have a huge egg on their faces as it was Peter who bragged about Prosha getting demoted last season.

"Life is fantastic!" she concluded of life after RHONJ.

Cynthia Bailey Allegedly Kicked Porsha Williams in the Stomach


People.com:
Even without queen bee NeNe Leakes, the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is off to a dramatic start.

A source tells PEOPLE that things allegedly got violent between costars Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey while filming the reality show recently.

"Words were going back and forth," the insider says. "From what I hear, Cynthia snapped and kicked Porsha in the stomach while wearing high heels."

Williams, 34, was treated briefly in the emergency room, the source adds.

Luckily, the women seem to be doing okay and do not plan on involving police.

"There will be no charges pressed as both ladies just want to put this past them and move on," the source says. "It was an unfortunate situation that escalated. Neither one is proud of what happened, but there will be no shortage of drama now that NeNe is gone."

Reps for Bravo, Williams and Bailey, 47, had no comment. According to TMZ, RHOA cameras filmed the altercation, which took place on a boat.

This isn't Williams' first on-air brawl: She was charged with battery in 2014 after getting into a physical fight with castmate Kenya Moore while taping the reunion special.

Shannon Beador's Husband David was Intimate with Her AND His Mistress on Her Birthday


Inquisitr.com:
Shannon Beador has experienced tons of heartache since learning of her husband David’s eight-month affair, but during the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Shannon Beador exposed an intimate detail of her marriage no one saw coming.

On August 25, the UK’s Daily Mail revealed details regarding Shannon Beador’s latest revelation.

“David was intimate with me, and he later told me: ‘You know, when I was intimate with you on your birthday, then I left and I was with her,'” Shannon Beador revealed during the August 24 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Shannon Beador’s 50th birthday was a complete nightmare and an unbelievable betrayal, and her 51st wasn’t much better. As fans saw on Monday night, Shannon Beador celebrated her latest birthday with her husband and their three daughters, but while she anticipated a special evening, what she got was a cheap meal in a restaurant that seemed more like a “pub” or “burger joint.” In fact, during the show, Shannon Beador said she didn’t “know if it’s appropriate for even the kids to be here.”
“I do have expectations about my birthday – they’re not high – but I do have expectations.”
In her blog, Shannon Beador looked back on her birthday celebration with David.
“My 50th birthday was definitely one of my lower points of the last year and David was aware of that. To be seated at a table right next to a loud bar where there were stools and not even chairs, was not close to what I expected. I hate that I look like a spoiled brat, that nothing is good enough. But when David and I celebrated his 50th birthday at the end of last year, he made many heartfelt statements to me about what had happened on my 50th which gave me the impression my 51st was going to be special.”
Shannon Beador learned of David’s affair last year, just before they began filming the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. While Shannon Beador did hesitate to rejoin the show and expose the emotional moments she and her husband went through in the weeks that followed, she ultimately felt they could help other couples who were going through the same thing by sharing their story on the Bravo reality show.

Kristen Taekman's Recent Marriage Scandal May Get Her Invited Back To 'RHONY'


Inquisitr.com:
The Real Housewives of New York City season eight was reportedly going to move forward without Kristen Taekman, who has been accused of failing to have an interesting storyline. However, after Taekman’s husband, Josh, admitted to being one of the 30 million users of Ashley Madison, a source claims Bravo has changed their mind about booting her from the show.
On August 25, a source offered the following Real Housewives cast update to Real Mr. Housewife:
“Kristen didn’t have much of a storyline this season, which is why Bravo was seriously considering canning her. However, Bravo loves a good scandal, sad as that may be, especially when it can play out for their cameras. Think of all of the drama this Ashley Madison reveal could bring to the show.”
Taekman was brought aboard the Real Housewives‘ New York-based franchise during the show’s sixth season and continued her full-time role when season seven returned earlier this year. Then, as the season came to an end, the Real Housewives star was thrust into the spotlight after her husband admitted to having an account on Ashley Madison, a dating website that promotes affairs. While speaking to PEOPLE Magazine, Josh claimed he made a mistake by “foolishly” signing up for the site and offered an apology to his Real Housewives star wife and their two children.
“Unfortunately, this is bound to be a tough time personally for Kristen, but this will up her chances at a [Real Housewives of New York City] return for sure.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, rumors of Kristen Taekman’s possible firing from The Real Housewives of New York City first began swirling earlier this summer. At the time, a source told Page Six that Taekman’s feud with her Real Housewives co-star, Bethenny Frankel, wasn’t helping her cause when it came to returning for season eight.
“[Kristen Taekman] will probably not be invited back to the show because she doesn’t fit in and her story line is stale. It will be the nail in Kristen’s coffin. Bethenny wants her off the show. She is now the anchor. [Kristen Taekman] is likely departing.”
OK! Magazine also spoke of the Real Housewives star’s possible exit, claiming she “has been way too boring. She didn’t bring enough drama to the cast.”

The close pals posed for photos together before hitting the dance floor.

Wearing a plunging-neckline dress, Gamble stood behind the wife of 72-year-old Geoffrey Edelsten waving her hands in the air before arching her body back and bringing Gabi in close.
While Gamble showed off her ample cleavage, Gabi was hard to miss in a characteristically flamboyant outfit that consisted of pointed bust plates and sheer stockings acting as pants.

But if the pair weren't showing off their blossoming friendship, they were posing for photos alongside fellow Housewives Lydia Schiavello.

Gamble took to social media to show off the ultimate three-some and captioned their photo: 'The really undomesticated Housewives of Melbourne... Truly.'

Camille Grammer Talks About Dating After Her Battle with Uterine Cancer


Yahoo.com:
Ever since Camille Grammer announced that she had been diagnosed with cancer in 2013, her fans and supporters have been eagerly hoping for her to have a full recovery. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gave HELLO! US an update on her health while attending the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards in West Hollywood. 

“It is much better," she told us at the Pump restaurant event. "Thank you. I’m here to support the Humane Foundation, but I have a great foundation that I’m very passionate about. It’s the Foundation for Women’s Cancer and I’m the chairman of the national race this year in Washington DC.” 

The mother-of-two spoke about why it was important for her to work with the Foundation, after going through her own battle with the disease. “It’s a huge honor and I’m so passionate about this because my mom had ovarian cancer, Stage 3. I had uterine cancer Stage 2. There’s so much awareness for breast cancer, and we all agree that that’s important, but there are other female cancers that need to be in the forefront also. So that’s my goal. To heighten and raise awareness and teach people to go to their doctor and learn their symptoms.” 

However, just because she was recovering from a serious illness, doesn’t mean Camille doesn’t want to have a personal life. She spoke about what it’s like trying to date while also recovering from her battle with cancer. 

“Well, I needed time to recover from chemo radiation," she admitted. "It was very hard after the surgery I had, a radical hysterectomy, to jump into a romantic situation. I do have great male friends and of course I have somebody very special in my life but I keep it, I don’t talk about it. Maybe down the road, but you know, I’m just taking everything slow.”
