Kim Richards Leaves Rehab to Attend Daughter Brooke's Cabo Wedding


TMZ.com:
Kim Richards was front and center for her daughter's wedding Saturday in Cabo, but it's just a night out before returning to rehab.

Kim's daughter Brooke married Thayer Wiederhorn, the heir to the Fatburger fortune ... yeah, we were surprised too that he was skinny.

The pictures tell a fairly compelling story ... the family seems tight.  Kyle Richards -- who has had issues with Kim in the past -- was right there, along with her daughters and hubby Maurcio Umansky.  You'll recall, Kyle's daughter Alexia was badly bitten by Kim's pit bull.

Paris was there, along with most of the other Hiltons.

The entertainment was impressive ... Conrad Sewell performed his huge song, "Firestone.'

Kim, who had a sober coach present, did not drink and she's returning to rehab, where she's been since shortly after her drunken night at the Beverly Hills Hotel which led to her arrest and criminal charges.

Sonja Morgan Went Home With Adrienne Maloof's Ex-Husband Paul Nassif


USmagazine.com:
It's a small world, after all! Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan recently went home with Paul Nassif, the ex-husband of former Beverly Hills Housewife Adrienne Maloof, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

An insider tells Us that Morgan was at NYC hot spot No. 8 with a group of her fellow Bravo stars including N.Y. veteran Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, RHOC's Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson, Flipping Out's Jenni Pulos, and Nassif. According to the observer, Morgan and Nassif were "all over each other" and "extremely touchy-feely."

A second source says the two went home together after the bash, while another insider tells Us that Morgan has liked the plastic surgeon for years. The source says Morgan would make comments like, "There's just something about him."

The twist in their hookup is that Nassif was previously married to former Housewife Maloof, 53, from 2002 to 2012. While their marriage appeared to be picture-perfect in the front of the cameras, their real-life split resulted in an ugly divorce battle over custody for their three kids.

Teresa Giudice Injures Shoulder Working Out In Prison


RadarOnline.com:
Joe Giudice‘s cheating scandal is just the latest bit of bad luck for Teresa Giudice. RadarOnline.com has learned that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is facing a medical crisis behind bars!

Recently, Giudice has been nursing an injury that she received while locked up, the source says.

“Teresa hurt her shoulder,” the source claims. “She is going for an MRI, X-Rays and all kinds of tests.”

While the injury may have occurred before she checked into the Danbury Federal Corrections Institute in January, the source says that Giudice’s shoulder problem has been exacerbated while she has been locked up.

“It was hurting her before she went in to prison, but she hurt it even more,” the source says. “Her injury is due to wear and tear from her working out.”

As Radar previously reported, “Teresa has been working out after every single meal.”

“She works out three times a day,” a source previously said.

But besides going to the doctor, Giudice hasn’t been offered any special accommodations to afford her relief from her pain.

“They will not give her extra padding for her bed to make her more comfortable,” the source says. “They won’t even give her an extra pillow to put under her shoulder to give her relief.”

Kenya Moore Upset With Bravo And Patti Stanger Over Fake Engagement Scandal


OKmagazine.com:
Kenya Moore is still dealing with the fallout from her messy scandal surrounding her relationship with James Freeman, her date from Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker. And a source speaking to RadarOnline.com revealed that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now furious with both Bravo and Matchmaker host Patti Stanger over the embarrassing situation!

Moore raised eyebrows last week when she revealed that Freeman, who she appeared to still be dating, had gotten married without her knowledge just one week after their episode of Matchmaker aired. She shared the surprising news in a statement on her Instagram account, sparking a great deal of questions and doubts among her fans and followers.

Freeman’s new wife even spoke out, claiming that Moore and her husband stopped talking after a few dates, and she was shocked by Moore’s statement about Freeman. "Kenya was humiliated," the source said, adding that Moore’s embarrassment left her extremely upset with both Bravo and her friend Stanger.  

"She lashed out at both [host] Patti Stanger and Millionaire Matchmaker, threatening to sue," the source said. "She was so embarrassed and wanted someone to blame, instead of admitting that she wasn't seeing James anymore and that she had faked their engagement. But Bravo told her to chill out."

And according to the insider, Moore is now worried that the scandal and her lack of a love interest may affect her standing on RHOA. The source said Moore ”doesn't want to be kicked off her show, but she's worried about not having a story line without a guy."

Pettifleur Berenger To Be Slapped with Cease and Desist Letter by Reality Star Omarosa Manigault Over Very Similarly Titled Book


TMZ.com:
O.G. 'Apprentice' bitch Omarosa Manigault isn't about to let some ‘Real Housewife' from Down Under rip-off her self-help book -- and now she's taking legal action to block the "bitch." 
 
The ‘Apprentice’ vet served Pettifleur Berenger -- one of the "Real Housewives of Melbourne" -- with a cease-and-desist for her recent self-help book, "Switch the Bitch: My Formula to Being the Champion of Your Life, Not the Victim."

Sound familiar? Omarosa dropped her own motivational tome, "The Bitch Switch: Knowing How To Turn It On and Off" ... back in October of 2008. 

Gotta say ... Omarosa and her lawyer, Bradford M. Cohen, fired off a pretty entertaining letter. They demand a full accounting of Berenger’s book sales … which they say “should not take long” -- since it's an "absolute bore to read."
Lastly, if Berenger doesn't pull her "literary classic" off shelves immediately ... Omarosa says she will file a lawsuit seeking $150k for each violation of her copyright.

Bitches, please.

Taylor Armstrong Reveals the Heartbreaking Reasons She Got Plastic Surgery


People.com:
Before Lisa Rinna brought her signature plump pout to the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor Armstrong's outsize lips were what everybody was talking about.

Now, in an exclusive Oprah: Where Are They Now? clip, the former RHOBH star goes into the deeply sad reasons she altered her face and body through plastic surgery.

"I spent the early part of my life trying to become someone that I wasn't," she says, "and I think a lot of it has to do with the shame and the guilt and all of the things I was carrying from my past."

During her time on RHOBH, native Oklahoman Armstrong was an advocate for survivors of domestic violence, openly discussing her experiences with abuse both before and during the series.


In order to mask the pain, "I got new lips and new breasts and changed my hair, changed my name," continues Armstrong, 43. "It was anything I could do to try to become someone else."

Andy Cohen Admits He Didn’t Want Bethenny Frankel, Kim Zolciak & Lisa Rinna On 'Real Housewives' At First


RadarOnline.com:
Though she’s one of the top names with a seven-figure paycheck, Andy Cohen didn’t initially want Bethenny Frankel on the Real Housewives Of New York City.

The Bravo decision-maker, in the upcoming special What Happens Live: Bethenny Turns The Tables, admitted that the was “initially wrong” in his casting decision for the reality series.

“When I saw the first casting of New York, was reticent about you because you had been on The Apprentice,” Cohen admitted. “And I thought that that was weird at the time.

Of course, Bethenny would go on to become the face of the series, and unveil a successful marketing line and even host a short-lived talk show before making her return to the show this year.

Cohen — who has since said he feels Bethenny was “born to be” on the show — admitted, “I’ve been wrong a thousand times,” and that was a big one!

In the discussion, Cohen also admitted two more housewives who he changed his mind about: Lisa Rinna and Kim Zolciak.

Rinna, he said, “was on the first casting tape for [Real Housewives of] Beverly Hills,” but he didn’t warm up to putting her on at first, as he felt her casting would be “not what this show is” about.

He said he changed his mind last year, and the decision has been a good one, as Rinna has been a spark plug on the reality show.

As for Zolciak, who made a mark on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, he said that he “did not get” her at first, but she’s since become one of the best known players on the franchise with multiple spin-offs to brag of.

Kim Richards Will Attend Daughter’s Wedding Weekend Without A Sober Companion


RadarOnline.com:
Kim Richards is ditching her rehab team to attend her daughter, Brooke Brinson’s second wedding ceremony in Mexico this weekend. Instead of a sober companion from the facility, RadarOnline.com has learned, her ex-husband, Monty, will be on hand to guarantee she won’t fall off the wagon. But after he gave her a Vicodin earlier this year, is he really the best chaperone?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star scrapped plans to take a rehab employee, an insider told Radar, “because she doesn’t want everyone talking about her having an outsider, with her in Mexico. She has decided that her ex-husband, Monty, Brooke’s father, will be responsible for making sure she doesn’t fall off the wagon.”

Still, “There will be alcohol served at the wedding reception,” the source confirmed. “Brooke has gone out of her way to tell the staff and wedding coordinator not to serve Kim any alcohol. During the wedding toast, Kim will be served a ginger ale or club soda.”

Another insider complained,”It’s so selfish of Kim to put that huge responsibility on Monty as he is battling terminal cancer. This wedding is turning into everything about Kim, and not the bride.”

What’s more, Monty might not be the best sober influence. In April, he admitted to giving Richards a Vicodin during filming for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her subsequent bizarre behavior led other cast members to question her sobriety. (Members of Alcoholics Anonymous consider taking unprescribed medication to be taboo.)

Meanwhile, Richards is already spending time outside of treatment.

On Friday, just days after she was charged with resisting arrest and battery of a police officer, the 50-year-old troubled reality star’s sister, Kathy Hilton, shared a photo of her at her daughter Brooke’s shower for her upcoming wedding to Thayer Wiederhorn.

In the caption, Hilton wrote, “With my beautiful sister and niece @kimrichards11 @brookewiederhorn so happy for you and Thayer ! Wish you both a long life together xoxo Aunt K.”

Noticeably absent from the luncheon, however, was sister Kyle. “She was in New York City for Bravo’s upfronts, but wouldn’t have attended because of the ongoing hostility with Kim,” the insider explained.

Bethenny Frankel Claims Her Mother Tried To Commit Suicide In Front Of Her



RadarOnline.com:
Bethenny Frankel has made no secret of the fact that she hates her mother but she makes a shocking claim about her awful childhood in an explosive Real Housewives of New York City sneak peek.

Frankel, 44, meets up with her step-father, John Parisella, and they discuss what a terrible childhood she believes she had.

“Of all the three choices of parents that I’ve had, he wins the prize,” the Bravolebrity says in the video.

Frankel then dropped the bombshell news that may explain why she has not spoken to her mother, Berndatte Birk, in over a decade.

“We had a real nice melting pot of my mother trying to commit suicide in the kitchen in front of me,” she claims.

Now a mother of her own daughter, Bryn Hoppy, Frankel is incredulous about her experience with her mom.

“What mother would ever do that to their child?” she asks Parisella.

And he drops his own bombshell about Frankel’s mother.

“You have to understand, she never wanted a child,” he alleged.

Amber Marchese Undergoes Partial Mastectomy in Second Cancer Battle


EOnline.com:
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Amber Marchese has successfully undergone a partial mastectomy to remove cancer from one of her breasts in her second battle with the deadly disease.

Amber had surgery yesterday to remove the new lump and surrounding tissue, E! News has learned. Since she already had a full mastectomy over five years ago during her cancer battle, her husband Jim Marchese is referring to it as a partial mastectomy.

"The surgery was close to four hours. They removed the tumor and more than 20 millimeters surrounding it," Jim tells E! News. "She was in a good deal of pain last night, but she's been resting and she's coming home today. After this, she'll have five weeks of radiation and then another surgery."

Jim adds, "She's really appreciative of everyone's thoughts and prayers. She'll be back on her feet in a few days. She's going to keep going and keep fighting."

Amber announced she was battling cancer again last month. "Truth be told, I found another mass, in the same breast as my first diagnosis, this past Friday before Easter," Amber shared with her Twitter followers. "I lifted my arms over my head, touched the side of my breast (I am not sure what made me do that) and there it was. A small pea sized, somewhat bean shaped, lump."

Shortly after, Amber told E! News, "I'm going to handle this with grace, positivity and faith. I don't know why this is happening to me, but it is. So I have to turn it into an opportunity to raise awareness. Some good has to come from this."
