Kenya Moore Falls On Stage At ‘Real Housewives’ Competition In Las Vegas
Kenya Moore joined the tumbling ranks of Michelle Williams and Scarlet over the weekend.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta Star” was competing in a high-rollers competition on Saturday when she fell during a runway walk segment of the event, reports TMZ. The competition featured housewives from all of the Bravo “Real Housewives” shows.

The ladies were separated into four teams and competed against each other in a series of games in front of an audience at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The teams were led by four high rollers.

Ms. Moore’s fierceness faltered when the contestants were instructed to teach the four high rollers how to walk the runway. Moore started off strong but lost her footing, dramatically tumbling and rolling on the stage.

Not to be overcome by gravity's face-snatching reality, though, Moore bounced back up and redeemed her greatness with a series of bountiful hair flips. And though she has yet to release any official comment on the spill, we commend her Beyoncé-like reflexes when it comes to turning a fall into an epic hairography moment.

Kudos Kenya. Your locks saved the day.

Bella Hadid, 17-Year-Old Daughter of Yolanda Foster, Arrested For DUI
Bella Hadid -- the 17-year-old daughter of Yolanda Foster -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- was arrested early Tuesday morning for DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Bella -- whose stepdad is legendary music producer David Foster and whose dad is Mohamed Hadid -- was driving on PCH at around 4 AM when she allegedly blew through a stop sign and almost collided with an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. patrol car.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Bella was pulled over and the deputy detected a strong odor of alcohol.

Bella blew a .14 -- which approaches double the legal limit -- but because she's a minor it's even worse. She can't drive with ANY alcohol in her system.

It gets worse. Bella was driving on a suspended license.

She was arrested and ultimately released into the care of her famous stepdad.

Phaedra Parks and Husband Apollo Nida Spotted Filming For 'RHOA' Season 6
It’s a beautiful July day in the ATL!  What a lovely day to take your kids to the park  to visit with the father who will soon be off to the pokey. And of course the Bravo cameras are there to capture it all on film. This afternoon, Phaedra, Apollo and their sons the Mayor of Toronto and the President of Sudan or whatever are at Chastain park having a custody visit. Phaedra came in her car, Apollo came in his car, the nanny came in her car.

There is Bravo crew everywhere. This scene reminds me of the time Sheree and Bob went there to talk and Sheree assaulted him with a drink. Hopefully this scene will go a bit better. Whatever could the storyline be? A divorce discussion?  A scene for Phaedra to deny any knowledge of Apollo’s criminal ways? A scene where Phaedra says she is selling the house and moving to Athens?

I’m starting to think that the answer to Apollo’s questions, “Who will ride with me?” will be the entire Bravo crew. It looks like they are going to follow him all season long right until he goes behind bars.  While Phaedra and Apollo still pretend like they live together?  Will Phaedra pretend to stand by her man?

One thing is now official. Apollo is on next season and Phaedra is too. Part of me thought maybe Phaedra would be too embarrassed to show her face, or maybe she would want to deal with her problems quietly. But no. I think we can expect lots of church scenes with prayer cloths and book signings for the ridiculous etiquette book.

Teresa Giudice Exit Could Open Door For Danielle Staub Return To "Real Housewives of New Jersey"

Anyone following Danielle on Twitter knows full well she desperately wants to come back to 'RHONJ', but I highly doubt that if Teresa does go to jail that Dina would stay on:
LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Teresa Guidice’s sentencing would have been concluded by now but for the death of Frank Giudice. That death prompting a change of Teresa Guidice’s sentencing until this fall. So if Teresa heads to prison, will she leave the show, and will Danielle Staub replace her? Fans might learn this fall. Teresa Giudice’s sentencing date is September 23, 2014. It was previously July 8. Joe Giudice’s sentencing date will be the same day as Teresa’s hearing.

Part of the mystery concerning Dina Manzo, Danielle Staub, and Teresa’s future with RHONJ stems from when, and how, Teresa could serve prison time. The confusion over Teresa Guidice’s sentencing is not just how long that she may spend time in prison but whether she will serve time while Joe Giudice is also in prison. The Giudices are presumably hoping that one spouse can serve time before the other for the sake of their children. But since Joe Giudice is facing several years in prison, it seems unlikely that Teresa’s prison term would be put on hold all those years until Joe’s period has concluded.

With that, questions remain if BravoTV will be able to record any footage for Teresa between now and this fall, in the event that she is sent to prison. And if they don’t get footage, what would be the backup plan for BravoTV? Many viewers are seeking a return of the show to its original core. But is Danielle Staub ready to return to the show?

If Teresa departs the show in part or in full for a season, the question is where the core of drama will come from. Many believe that the most obvious answer would be bringing Danielle Staub right back into the mix to battle Dina Manzo. Others disagree.

Since last Sunday’s episode aired, Danielle has been tweeting up a storm against Dina Manzo. There are still vestiges of their 2010 conflict. At the time, Danielle claimed issues about Dina’s contract, and who signed which provisions. “She told my ex’s family that I’d actually forged his signature on the contracts, which I did not,” Dina claimed in 2010. “She knew she could work on his emotions, so she supplied him with every phone number of everybody he’d need to follow through with a lawsuit – contacts at Bravo, our production crew and her attorneys.” She added “My ex husband was well aware of Lexi’s involvement in the show. She would often call him with details after a day of shooting.”

Phaedra Parks' Husband Apollo Nida Slams Wife For Not Showing Up During Sentencing
The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Apollo Nida hasn't even started serving his eight-year prison sentence, but he's already questioning his marriage with Phaedra Parks.

Asked point-blank if their relationship would weather his time behind bars, Nida responded matter-of-factly.

"I doubt it," he told Atlanta B100's radio hosts. "I mean, my wife didn't even f------g show up for my sentencing, so I'm still kind of salty about that."

The Housewives star, 35, was arrested for fraud in January before pleading guilty in May.

While the future of his marriage is up in the air, Nida – who grew up in a broken home – also expressed concern over the impact his absence could have on his young sons Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1.

"I love my kids," he said. "Coming from a non-father, non-mother background, I think at the end of the day, I feel sad and disappointed that I let my little man down."

And though Nida said he's accepted his punishment and is moving forward, he admitted, "This is hell."

Sonja Morgan Just Sold Her $5.7M French Estate To Help Pay Off Bankruptcy Debt
Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan just sold her home in Ramatuelle, France, for a whopping $5.7 million — which will be used to pay off the millions she owes creditors after filing for bankruptcy, is reporting.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the reality TV starlet sold the French Estate on May 31 for $5.796 million leaving her with a net of $4,521,984.71 after closing.

After losing a legal battle with the production company Hannibal Pictures — who accused her of failing to raise money for a film to star John Travolta — she was slapped with a $7 million judgement and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The trustee in her case reported the sale this week, filing documents with the Bankruptcy Court in New York on July 16 stating, “The Trustee of the above-captioned bankruptcy estate, hereby reports as to the private sale of the estate’s interest in certain real property known as ‘La Clos’ located on the Parc de l’Oumede in Ramatuelle, France.”

Morgan had originally listed the home at $8 million, but it clearly sold for much less.

The profit from the sale will likely be used to pay off some of Morgan’s debt in the $7 million Hannibal Pictures judgement.

The divorcee’s bankruptcy case is still pending while the Trustee tries to figure out how to pay off the rest of her creditors.

Bravo Cancels Teresa Giudice’s ‘WWHL’ Appearance, Replaces Her With Cousins Kathy Wakile And Rosie Pierri
Andy vs. Teresa, take two!

Bravo has nixed Teresa Giudice‘s scheduled Sunday night appearance on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live, is exclusively reporting.

“Teresa was notified by Bravo on Friday that her appearance on Sunday’s show was being canceled,” a Bravo insider tells Radar. “No official reason was given, but the network has been upset with Teresa for not doing as many promotional appearances for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.“

In her place, Giudice’s cousins, former RHONJ cast member Kathy Wakile and her sister, show regular Rosie Pierri, will sub as guests.

“See you all in the #WWHL Clubhouse with my sis @RosiePierri @Andy @Bravotv Sunday night after this weeks #RHONJ,” Wakile tweeted on Saturday morning.

The mother of four— who is facing 27 months in prison after pleading guilty with her husband, Joe, to fraud and tax evasion charges— is sure to be livid with the diss.

On the show’s five year anniversary Thursday night, Cohen mocked Giudice’s legal woes— and as Radar previously reported, the disgraced star was furious.

The Bravo head honcho’s comments “pushed Teresa over the edge,” an insider told Radar. “She felt so betrayed by Andy.”

“For someone who has claimed to be one of Teresa’s best friends, Andy has turned his back on her.”

Tamra Barney Throws Shade At Bethenny Frankel: "She's Begging for Attention Right Now"
Tam-ra! Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge (nee Barney) slammed Bethenny Frankel and her recent pajama controversy during a live appearance on Veria Living TV Network's The Juice on Tuesday, July 15.

"She's begging for attention right now," Judge remarked of Frankel's controversial Instagram post, in which she wore her 4-year-old daughter Bryn's pajamas. "If you do fit into your 4-year-old's clothes, don't talk about it!" Judge advised Frankel. "Just go eat!"

Indeed, 43-year-old Frankel—who told fans, "This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"—received flak from users who thought it was unacceptable for a mother to behave in such a manner.

Taking their feedback in stride, Frankel followed up with a snarky response the following day: "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal," she tweeted Monday, July 14. "Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue."

Frankel was not the only former Housewife to be targeted by Judge during her talk show appearance. While addressing rumors that she's leaving RHOC, the outspoken soon-to-be grandma urged viewers to "always consider the source."
"That rumor got started by a housewife that got fired," Judge said of former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord. (McCord, who starred on the series for four seasons, predicted in an April 2014 blog post that Judge would not be asked to return to Housewives by producers. "Tamra Judge has very good reason to be worried at this point," McCord wrote, pointing out the OC star's frequent clashes.)

Judge, though, said she's not worried. "Let's face it, the big mouth never gets fired."
