Jill Zarin Set to Reunite with Ex-Real Housewives Co-stars at 5th Annual Luxury Luncheo


DailyMail.com:
Jill Zarin will reunite with her Real Housewife cast members at her Southampton estate for her fifth annual Luxury Luncheont this weekend. 

Speaking exclusively to Dailymail.com the New York socialite, who returned to Real Housewives of New York last month, said this year's event will be open to the public to raise money for cancer research.

Zarin's husband Bobby is currently undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer at MD Anderson and Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Florida – both of which will receive donations. 

'I'd like to raise as much as possible,' she said. 'Bobby has thyroid cancer and I really want to focus in on thyroid cancer because people think that it is a curable cancer.

'For the most part it is – 93 per cent of the people who get it, get treated so they never have to be treated again.

'But seven per cent don't respond to the standard care and less than one per cent have it spread to the brain.

'So I want to focus on that small percentage of people and help find a treatment out there that can help them.'

A limited number of tickets, which start at $1,000 a pop, will be sold via Zarin's website. 

Guests at the lavish summer bash will be treated to gift bags, which Zarin says are valued at $1 million in total, as well as food provided by New York caterer Carlyle off the Green.

Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore After Alleged Comments About Kim's Son


TMZ.com:

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

Bethenny Frankel Allegedly Befriended Ramona Singer’s Ex-Husband Mario’s Then-Mistress


RadarOnline.com:
Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer are at war this season on The Real Housewives of New York — and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that there could be a secret reason behind their feud!

The Skinnygirl mogul resorted to staying at her friends’ Hamptons homes before she bought her own pad, and befriended Ramona’s husband Mario’s then-mistress while they stayed at the same house!

Kasey [Dexter] and Mario met at their friend’s home in the Hamptons in 2013,” an insider told Radar. “She had a bruise on her butt from getting hit with a tennis ball and he came up to her and was flirting with her, talking about the injury. Ramona was right there and witnessed the whole thing. Mario asked for her number and the next day she sent him pictures. They were on their friend’s yacht and Mario almost had a heart attack!”

“Bethenny was staying at the same house as Kasey that summer,” the insider added. “They used to be friends!”

“Bethenny knew everything that was going on!” the insider concluded. “Maybe that’s why Bethenny and Ramona deep down don’t like each other!”

Radar previously reported that Ramona filed for divorce after she caught Mario with Kasey at their Hamptons house. She later revealed that their separation led her to contemplate suicide.

Erika Girardi Says Former 'RHOBH' Co-Star Eileen Davidson Will Be Missed


Bravo.com:

Eileen Davidson confirmed earlier this month that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 8. And there's one 90210 pal who knows exactly why the soap actress is definitely going to be missed.

"Well I can't even confirm whether I'm back, so there you go. But I know that a lot of people are gonna miss Eileen," Erika Girardi told The Daily Dish while out promoting her partnership with Beautyblender in NYC on Thursday.

So what is it that makes Eileen such a great BFF? Well, lucky for you, Erika explained all. "Eileen is one of the most understanding, kind, and giving human beings I've ever met -- and what you see on TV is what you get," she said about her pal and sometimes The Young And The Restless co-star. "She's lovely."
Eileen confirmed her RHOBH exit in July, in a statement to The Daily Dish: "After a lot of careful thought, I've decided because of my crazy schedules at The Young and The Restless, as well as Days of Our Lives, it's best for me and my family if I step away from being a Housewife for now. But you never know, I might be popping in from time to time just to see what the ladies are up to! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!"

Eileen joined RHOBH in Season 5, giving fans an inside look at her glam life as a soap star, as well as her marriage to actor Vincent Van Patten.

Vicki Gunvalson On How She Fought Back from the Biggest Betrayal of Her Life


EOnline.com:
Two years ago, Vicki Gunvalson was at the lowest point in her life. After being told on camera the heartbreaking news her mother had unexpectedly passed away, she then had to go through the very public humiliation of having to question whether the man she once called the love of her life had potentially faked cancer to be on TV.

The betrayal by her then boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, who admitted to fabricating medical documents but insisted he did "in fact" have cancer, was ratings gold for The Real Housewives of Orange County. But personally for Vicki it led to a deep emotional breakdown, during which she couldn't even get out of bed. The pain was only heightened when some of her cast mates questioned whether she had been involved in Brooks' lie. "It literally killed me," she said. "I don't think they know the damage they did to my career, my moral compass, my family. It was bad."

Now she's back for season 12, and this time the OG of the OC is telling a different kind of story about how she fought back from the brink to find love—and why she's finally ready to face her demons head on.
How does it feel to be back? 
It's emotional. I want to put everything behind me. I just want to have a good year. I want [everyone] to be friends and have good times.

Tell us about your new boyfriend, Steve Lodge.
It was 10 months after Brooks that I started getting serious with Steve. He was kind of just what I needed. I don't like being alone. It's a couples' world, so if you're not dating or have a significant other you get a little left out from your couple friends. The right people appeal when they need to and he's been good.
He seems to be treating you right…
He is treating me right! There's times where I go, "Is this real?" because he's not very excitable. That's one of the things I was worried about. "So you like me? Are we good?" He's like, "Yes Vicki, I like you a lot, I love you actually."  And I'm like, "But you're not acting like you love me. I'm not getting all those words of affirmation and all the things I need." He's so calm. We have the five love languages… what I need, what he needs. He needs quality time and that's something I don't really give enough of with him, so I'm trying better. I need words of affirmation. I like to whoop it up. He's like, "What exactly does that mean?" So that's a challenge. The bad boy with all that chemistry and all that passion, or is it like a strong, stable man that I know I can count on at all times? And that's what you want.

Joanna Krupa Gets Candid on Painful Divorce: 'I Spent Many Nights Crying'


FOXNews.com:
Joanna Krupa is opening up about her painful divorce from Romain Zago.

The “Real Housewives of Miami” star told In Touch magazine she was “caught off guard” when her husband of nearly four years asked for a divorce mid-December of 2016. The couple jointly filed for divorce July 10, 2017 according to TMZ.

“I spent many nights crying,” the 38-year-old model admitted. “It was the worst Christmas imaginable. I felt like my life had been turned upside down, and I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I cried. I couldn’t eat. I probably lost about seven pounds.”

Krupa explained that their conflicting work schedules impacted their home life, prompting the marriage to crumble. Krupa added she married her friend and business partner, but not her lover.

“I was heartbroken,” she said. “He had wanted a family, but I was always traveling and made work my priority. As time has gone on, I’ve realized we were both unhappy.”

Krupa is now ready to move on and enjoy the single life.
