Peggy Sulahian Responds To 'Troubled Marriage' Rumors
Peggy Sulahian just unleashed an explosive rant over her “troubled marriage” to husband Diko after exclusively uncovered a divorce bombshell between the RHOC couple. As Radar previously reported, Diko secretly filed for divorce from Peggy in 1996.

Despite Peggy’s constant claims of having the perfect marriage to her partner of over 20 years, Radar obtained court documents proving Dikran K. Sulahian filed a petition for dissolution of marriage against Peggy Atteukenian (the reality mom’s maiden name) on April 24 of that year.

Peggy took to her Bravo blog on Tuesday to dispute tales of a troubled marriage. “As you can see, I have an amazing relationship with my husband Diko,” Peggy insisted. She also pointed out a scene during Monday night’s episode in which she and Diko’s playful and loving nature was revealed as they giggled over the Armenian beauty’s misunderstanding of the popular American phrase “beating a dead horse.” “We have the best of times being silly, with love and laughter, even having fun with a topic of idioms such as ‘beating a dead horse,'” she wrote.

Peggy insinuated the phrase goes perfectly with the troubled marriage rumors she’s currently facing. “I googled it later, to find out it meant something pointless to discuss since it’s been discussed so many times already; he’s so right.”

As Radar readers know, the two were married on April 29, 1995 and separated less than one year later, on March 29, 1996. According to the Los Angeles Superior Court documents, the divorce was finalized on December 11, 1996, by Judge Robert A. Schinder. Neither party was present when the marriage was officially dissolved.

Brandi Redmond Talks Marriage Struggles After Challenging Year
Brandi Redmond wasn't afraid to open up about the good, the bad and the ugly of her personal life last season of The Real Housewives of Dallas, especially when it came to her marital issues with husband Bryan Redmond. The RHOD mom shared how she felt distant with her hubby and even revealed that he said he wanted a divorce after how she acted during one wild night at the strip club last season. 

But what a difference a season makes, because Brandi and Bryan are in a totally different place these days. "Bryan and I are amazing. If you go back, if you look at what we went through, I think it was a learning lesson for both of us. We learned to communicate better and just reflecting back on that, it was actually a blessing, because we were able to pull ourselves together, go through counseling, and really focus on the things that we really needed to to make our marriage better," Brandi recently gushed to The Daily Dish. "I love that I had the opportunity to come back and show it to everybody. It makes me smile."

The RHOD couple got to such a good place that they even renewed their vows in front of their closest friends and family in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, last year. "I think what's funny is we were all wearing pretty dresses, the girls, and my husband comes out with all the guys, and they're all wearing robes and then they take them all off and they're in little whitey-tidys. And I'm like, 'Wait, I can't post these pictures,'" Brandi said of one hilarious and memorable moment during the big day. "It was fun, and I think it was more intimate, and we needed it."

Brandi teased that we'll see more of Bryan's fun side this season of RHOD, which fans may not have seen much of in the past. "He was very closed off. He was scared because he didn't know what we were getting ourselves into," Brandi said of the way Bryan came off during Season 1. "And this season, I think you're going to be very surprised with Bryan because his personality really shines and he relaxed and he was himself and he had fun doing it." 

Though Brandi said Bryan doesn't watch the show, reliving Season 1 proved to be a valuable experience as she approached working on her marriage. "Bryan and I's relationship and everything we went through last season, it definitely made us stronger," she said.

Bethenny Frankel Extends Support to Jill Zarin's Husband Bobby Amid Cancer Battle
Bethenny Frankel put her rocky history with Jill Zarin aside in order to show her support for Jill's husband, Bobby Zarin, as he continues to battle cancer.

As you may recall, the former Real Housewives of New York City stars haven't spoken in quite some time after their fallout several years ago. But all of that has changed as of recently.

E! News can confirm Bethenny put the drama aside, sending the Zarin family a thoughtful gift during this difficult time.

In fact, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stranger joined Heather McDonald's podcast Juicy Scoop earlier this week and dished more details about the situation..

"Bobby's dying. He doesn't have a lot of time," Patti said. "This is not something to play around with. Network antics aside, me and Andy [Cohen] have been texting and e-mailing, and this last week, Bethenny did send a basket of goodies to Bobby."

Patti continued, "At the end of the day, if you get sick—like Bobby—you need support, and we can all get sick."

Jacqueline Laurita Claims To Be Happy To Be ‘On the Outside’ of ‘RHONJ’
Jacqueline Laurita is over the drama of being a “Housewife.”

After Page Six exclusively reported in March that Laurita will not be returning to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” she explained to us that the decision to leave was her own.

“They had given me a start date,” she told us. “A couple days later they expressed concern that I wasn’t getting along with a few of the girls and they were like, ‘How’s this going to look authentic if you don’t want to be hanging out with each other?’”

“They wanted me to come on and start filming part-time to see how the storyline unfolded and then [said they] maybe would make me full-time,” she explained while promoting her health and beauty book “Get It!” at an event hosted by fitness app POPiN on Thursday night. “They weren’t guaranteeing full-time, so for me to film all season long under all that stress and drama to not have a guaranteed full-time [spot] was not worth it for me, so I said no.”

Cameras had followed Laurita’s on-again, off again friendship with fellow “Housewife” Teresa Giudice, whom Laurita subtly referred to her while signing copies of the book she co-wrote with Jene Luciani (author of “The Bra Book”).
A fan, coincidentally with the same first name as Giudice, prompted Laurita to quip, “I know a few Teresas.”

And as for why the workings behind Laurita’s latest venture — which was released in May — were never captured on camera?

“You can only promote so many books on the show, you know?”

Cynthia Bailey's Ex-Husband Peter Thomas Has a Spin-off Show in the Works with Bravo
Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.
Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

Have Carole Radziwill and Boyfriend Adam Kenworthy Called It Quits?
What’s going on between Carole Radziwill and Adam Kenworthy?

The Real Housewives of New York City star and the chef first sparked breakup rumors last week after Radziwill, 53, unfollowed Kenworthy, 32, on Instagram. Now, Entertainment Tonight is reporting the two have called it quits — but a source close to the Bravo star tells PEOPLE it’s not that simple.

“They took a break — but they still spend a lot of time together,” says the source. “It’s still unclear. It’s not black or white. The truth is they have an unconventional relationship, and they’re in an in-between stage.”

A rep for Radziwill declined to comment when reached by PEOPLE.

“He moved out, but he never really moved in permanently,” continues the source, referencing a June episode of RHONY that depicted Kenworthy moving out of Radziwill’s apartment. “They took a trip right before the reunion. But it’s not a conventional situation.”

Radziwill has previously admitted that living under the same roof wasn’t a good fit for the couple.

“Living together, our relationship evolved past the point where either of us felt comfortable,” she said during a RHONY confessional. “I didn’t want to keep reminding him to pick up his socks. I’m not that girl.”

“It’s time for him to have his own place,” she added. “I’m not sad. I think six months of living together was a lot for me, you know? It’s not like we don’t love each other. I feel like there’s balance again. Our relationship is not one where we should be living together.”

Ramona Singer Shares Advice She Gave To Luann de Lesseps After Divorce Reveal
Ramona Singer was one of the first Real Housewives of New York City to reach out to pal Luann de Lesseps following the news that she and husband Tom D'Agostino would be divorcing. The RHONY entrepreneur tweeted "I am so sad for you" in response to Luann's divorce announcement on Twitter earlier this month.

Well, Ramona has been in touch with Luann since her breakup, and she has continued to console her friend during this difficult time. "We've texted each other. We've talked about how my heart is really broken for her because I know when something ends, it's really, it's horrible," Ramona recently told E! News. "And I know she had her heart and soul in this relationship. And once she decided she wanted to marry him, we were all behind her 100 percent. And she really was never happier than when she decided to marry him, and I never saw her happier. So I'm really sad for her, I really am."

Ramona gave some more insight into the relationship during a recent interview with Extra. "I think Luann is a person who, like every woman, wants the white picket fence and the knight in shining armor," she explained. "Of course, that doesn't always exist, but we still want for it and hope for it, and that's what she was hoping for." 

Ramona and the rest of the RHONY gang will have more to say about Tom when the ladies sit down for this season's reunion, which kicks off on Wednesday at 9/8c.

Stephanie Hollman Reveals Big Changes She Made Going into Season 2 of 'Real Housewives of Dallas'
This ain't her first rodeo, but Stephanie Hollman still made some changes going into Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Dallas."

The mother of two, who charmed Bravo loyalists last year with her quippy one-liners and her playful friendship with Brandi Redmond, recently opened up to AOL Entertainment about the pressure she felt while filming Season 1 and her new approach going into Season 2.

"Last year I felt like it was so serious," she explained to us. "I was so nervous all the time, and it's hard to trust the process when you're not sure what's going to happen. This time around was very different for me, though, because I trust Bravo and Bravo's fans more [than I did before]. I trust the process. It's easier to let your guard down when you do that."

One way that Hollman was able to relax a bit more during the four-month filming process was to reevaluate her household's dynamic in order to be more realistic about how much she could have on her plate at one time.

"I was smarter this year! Last year, juggling the kids going to and from school, that was a real struggle for me," she continued. "If things ran over with filming, I couldn't just call the school and be like, 'Sorry!' I never wanted to be that mom that's not dependable, so we hired an assistant/house manager just to get everything done. I just realized that I don't do well under stress, and I wanted to make sure my kids never felt like they couldn't do the things that they always could."

Hollman's struggle with dealing with stress was proven when she suffered a string of three car accidents while filming the show's first season. It was a scary reminder to take a step back.

"I don't know if you noticed, but last year I had three different cars during the ten episodes, because I had three different accidents during filming," she revealed to AOL Entertainment. "I would get so flustered! I wrecked my car, my loaner car and then my car again. I lost my insurance, so I also had to get someone to drive me around [this season]."
