Alexis Bellino Sells Gated Home for $2.739 Million
Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” personality Alexis Bellino, through a California corporation that lists her as president, has sold a home in San Juan Capistrano for $2.739 million.

The Spanish-inspired house, built in 1991 and since updated, sits on a cul-de-sac with a swimming pool, two spas and a waterfall feature. Dark wood beams, black-hued chandeliers and light marble floors give the roughly 6,450 square feet of interior space a contemporary vibe.

A formal dining room with a fireplace, a wood-paneled office, a game room, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms are among the living areas. An updated kitchen centers on a marble-topped island.

Another area holds a wall of glass-paneled cabinets filled with handbags and accessories.
French doors open to balcony and terrace space for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Lawns, mature trees and a five-car garage complete the grounds.

The property came to market in the summer for $3.288 million and was listed at $2.939 million prior to the sale. It previously changed hands five years ago for $2 million, records show.

Miami Judge To Finally Hear Joanna Krupa's 'Smelly' Lawsuit Against Brandi Glanville
One of the strangest court cases in Miami-Dade County history is coming to a head later this month after nearly two years of legal wrangling.

Lawyers for former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Joanna Krupa, the plaintiff, and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” standout Brandi Glanville are set to argue before Judge Pedro Echarte on whether he should throw out a slander case involving the two actresses.

The subject matter is delicate: It’s about rumors allegedly spread by Glanville in 2013 and 2014 that a foul odor emanates from Krupa’s lady parts.

And on Jan. 24, Echarte will have to decide whether Granville’s statements on Bravo, the cable outfit that owns the “Real Housewives” franchise, fall under a statute of limitation.

Glanville’s side says the one-year limitation of California, where the statement was made, should be considered. If that were the case, the lawsuit would be dismissed.

Krupa’s attorney, Ray Rafool, says only a fool would use California law in Florida, where the limit is two years. If the judge picks Florida, the case will likely go to a trial later this year.

“It’s unlikely the judge will throw the case out on that argument,” Rafool says. “Joanna was and is a resident of Florida, so there’s no reason to use California standards.”

Manzo plays Alessandra DiGiacomo a high-powered businesswoman who is all-work, no-play on the series. In TooFab's exclusive sneak peek, the former Bravolebrity takes viewers on the set as she shoots her first scenes and tries to shake off her rookie acting jitters.

Siggy Flicker Reflects on 1st Season of 'Real Housewives of Mew Jersey'
The Real Housewives of New Jersey returned to screens in 2016, bringing Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga back to the small screen, alongside new cast members Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania. Now that the season is over, we reflected on the drama and goings on with Siggy in a new and exclusive interview – find out what she had to say below…

How did you find your first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
It was exhausting. Definitely worth it but I couldn’t get out of bed for 30 days! I’m one of those people who feels other people’s pain and when you can’t help them it’s really difficult. There was a lot of friendships broken up in the season and I really wanted to help people to move forward and to bring the pack together. It was heart-breaking. Teresa [Giudice] and Jacqueline [Laurita] have been friends for 18 years and they’ve shared a lot of precious moments. They’ve had babies at the same time and were really close so it was heart-breaking to see that relationship fall. It was also hard because I was just getting to know them for the first time. When I met Teresa we fell in love and had a bond but that had caused a bit of friction whereas I just wanted everyone to get along and move forward.
What did you make of the response from fans about your participation on the show?
Oh my God it was overwhelming; I am so grateful. I’m so grateful for the network for giving me a platform to grow. Ever since I was 14, I’ve always wanted to help and inspire people and more importantly, make them laugh. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted. I’m doing motivational speeches around the country in which I can tell my story of how I came from nothing. To get me through college I waited tables at TGI Fridays and I was a nanny in New York, so I can start telling people that failure and rejection is protection in life and just something that you have to go through. There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to change people’s lives; apart from my children obviously! The moral is, if I can do it and walk straight without any shortcuts, the hard work and dedication will pay off. This season proves that you don’t need to be full of drama to stand out and a lot of the fans reacted so nicely to that.

There’s been a lot of post-season drama; which of the Housewives would you still call a friend at this point?
I’m close with all of them. I just got off the phone with Jacqueline, I talk to Melissa daily and Dolores and I are best friends. I would have to say Dolores and I speak the most. The Jersey Bond I think is very different to the other Housewives franchises. We all have a very common bond which is that we are all about family first and are obsessed with our husbands, ex-husbands and our children. It’s really hard to do a show when you’ve got children and husbands because when you don’t have to answer to a man, it’s a lot easier. It’s all about our families and we’re so obsessed that we call each other whenever something is happening with our families. Teresa, Dolores [Catania] and I went to Florida and we are already planning our next trip, unfortunately Melissa [Gorga] wasn’t able to make it. I just want all the best for everyone and the season was hard on everyone.

Do you think the portrayal and edit you got on the show was a fair one? A lot of Housewives think the editing room can be a cruel beast…
I think the edit is the real one because I cry in every episode and the emotion is raw.

Phaedra Parks Says Ex-Husband Apollo Can't File For a Divorce That Already Went Down
Phaedra Parks says her ex is not only a felon ... he's slow on the uptake and she wants a judge to throw him out of divorce court.

Phaedra filed legal docs calling BS on Apollo's divorce petition. She says she filed for divorce first, and has already obtained a judgment.

It's unclear why Apollo isn't just dropping his belated divorce filing. She says he pretended not to know she filed, but now that he does, the question remains ... why not drop it?

Apollo's lawyers tell TMZ ... they are going to drop his divorce petition because the judge Phaedra's filing is inclined to undo the judgment because it was handled unfairly ... Apollo didn't have a legal team when Phaedra appeared in court and got her judgment.

His lawyers tell TMZ, the judge unfairly distributed their property in her favor, and will now give Apollo his day in court to argue what he believes is an equitable distribution of assets as well as a fair custody arrangement.

Why Yolanda Hadid Is Ready for New Beginnings
"The best time for new beginnings is now."

Just one week before celebrating her 53rd birthday, Yolanda Hadid shared those uplifting words with her Instagram followers. While some may think it's just your average quote for a positive new year, it could just be the greatest symbol of what's to come for the mother-of-three.

It's no secret that 2016 was filled with speed bumps for the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

In a matter of months, Yolanda experienced a public divorce from her longtime love David Foster. She endured a dramatic season on Bravo that featured co-stars questioning the validity of her health. And most of all, she continued to battle with Lyme disease each and every day.

But as a fresh chapter begins with her birthday today, new memories are being created for a woman who is proud to call herself a survivor.
Her three children Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid remain at the top of their game in the modeling industry. And yes, they always produce #proudmommy moments.

Gone are the days of filming dramatic scenes with her Bravo co-stars who once thought she may have Munchausen Syndrome. Spoiler alert: It was just a rumor.

And as Yolanda prepares to launch her book Believe Me: My Battle With the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease this May, her prognosis has never looked better.

"I am seeking, I am striving and I am in it to win it with all of my heart," she recently wrote on Instagram. "#LymeDiseaseAwareness #TvamSurgery #LastChapter #SearchingForACure #RemissionInSight."

Contractors Sue Sheree Whitfield For $10,000 in Unpaid Services
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield has seen her share of courtroom drama, especially while dealing with Chateau Sheree and her potentially racist neighbors.

Now it appears a contractor is taking the 47-year-old to court as well, claiming the reality show vet has yet to pay all of her bills for services provided by the company.

Heritage Landscape Group of Flowery Branch is suing Sheree for $10,012.50 in alleged unpaid services, including landscaping and helping her obtain a certificate of occupancy, according to documents recovered by StraightFromTheA.

“Mrs. Whitfield contracted the landscaping services of Heritage Landscape to help in the completion of her home. We also helped her get the certificate of occupancy pertaining to the landscaping and erosion.”

The complaint goes on, “Mrs. Whitfield has paid some (less than half of her bill), although she was happy with the work. At first she claimed she did not have the money, and then she claimed poor quality work. We would just like to get the balance owed.” 

This latest lawsuit comes just months after Sheree faced a judge over noise and permit complaints that she felt were racially prompted.
