'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Likely To Be in Limbo Until Teresa Giudice Gets Out of Prison
The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is going to jail along with Teresa Giudice.

A source close to the production tells Confidenti@l that Bravo expects to shelve the hit show until the future Jersey jailbirdgets out of the slammer.

While other members of the cast have been anxiously waiting for seventh-season contracts to drop on their doorsteps, a network insider tells us that “there is zero moving forward anytime soon for ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ ”

“If we’re doing a season seven, Teresa will be part of it,” the source says. “We would shoot it when she’s out of jail.”

With the disgraced reality star set to report to federal prison in Danbury, Conn., for 15 months starting Jan. 5, it could be spring 2016 before Giudice is back in front of the cameras. However, Bravo insiders are not expecting the mother of four, who pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud, to serve her full term.

“The season for ‘Housewives’ is not consistent in the way that the other shows are, like ‘OK, episode one is always Jan. 1’ or whatever,” explained the insider, “ ‘Real Housewives of New York’ missed an entire year before we brought it back. It’s not that we have to do it within a certain amount of time. We do it when we know it’s right and when we want to do it.”

“The network has not made any decision on how we’re moving forward with (‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’),” the source added. “We have nothing going forward, we have no (footage) in the can, nothing that we’re shooting right now.

“We’re completely figuring out what to do with the show. We can’t really figure it out until we see what’s going to happen with her and the rest of the cast,” added the source, who insisted that Bravo doesn’t plan to shoot scenes with Giudice before she dons her orange jumpsuit.

Kyle Richards On Lisa Rinna: ‘Brushing It Under The Carpet Is A Temporary Solution’
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards questioned her friendship with Lisa Vanderpump on the reunion special last year, after she learned that Lisa had possibly tried to put some tabloid magazines in Brandi Glanville’s bag regarding Richards’ husband’s supposed affair. Kyle was hurt and confused, as she thought that Lisa was her friend.

Kyle Richards may have been even more confused, as Vanderpump had been caught saying rude and harsh things about Kyle and her husband. On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump had joked that people just had to list their home with Mauricio Umansky, and Kyle would become a great friend. She hinted that Richards was all about the professional relationships.

According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards may have forgotten those nasty comments when she met up with her former friend for lunch on the premiere episode of this new season. She wanted to work things out.

“Lisa and I picked up where we left off last year. I reached out to Lisa and asked her to meet with me. Lisa and I had always been close. In the past couple of years, we have had our moments and a lot of obstacles to work through. However, life is too short, and I wanted to talk it out and be able to start from scratch,” Richards reveals.
Richards also points out that she does miss her friend, even though comments were made that she doesn’t necessarily agree with. But during their lunch, Kyle didn’t bring up the comments that were made behind her back. Perhaps, she doesn’t want to deal with the confrontation.

“I missed the days of us just laughing and having fun. I wanted to get to a strong enough place where we wouldn’t go backwards again or let outside negativity influence our friendship. I think that in order to do that you have to have these conversations. Brushing it under the carpet and just “moving on” is always a temporary solution,” Richards explains, hinting that this makeup is only temporary between them.

Dina Manzo Caught Playing With Sex Toys, On Camera Asking For Threesome In Secret ‘RHONJ’ Footage
Is Dina Manzo too hot for TV? Bravo initially did not want viewers to see a raunchy sex scene starring Caroline Manzo’s younger sis from the Atlantic City trip on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But now, has learned, they’ve changed their minds and decided to expose Manzo’s freaky side on tonight’s final “Secrets Revealed” episode of the show.

“In tonight’s special, Dina is seen shopping for sex toys with the girls,” an insider told Radar. “While there, she picks up a 14-inch dildo … and starts taking selfies with it!”

The source leaked a screenshot of the scene to Radar, below:

That wasn’t the end of her sexual acts in the store, however. “Dina also picks up crotchless underwear and claims that it would be good to cover her piece,” the source said. “In addition, she makes it known to the girls that she will try anything once!”

And according to the source, she proved that in a super-raunchy scene that ended up on the cutting room floor!

“On the Bravo site, there is a scene where Amber and Jim [Marchese] kiss in a limo,” the source explained. “Everone was calling out saying they wanted to see them kiss. What’s not seen on the tape is that Dina says that she wants to watch them make out. And after that, she comments that she wants to participate with them!”

“Was she just joking around? Absolutely not!” the source insisted. “Dina was dead serious about this.”
Finally, in the same wild night, the source claims that Dina said she wanted to be “Teresa Aprea’s date for the evening and joked about wanting to get her ‘date drunk’ so she could get lucky. The moral of the story is that Dina is a freak!”

Radar reached out to Jim Marchese to confirm what the source had described, and he verified that all of these incidents were accurate.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star opens up to about motherhood and Nida to about motherhood and her incarcerated husband in a new blog post.

When asked if she was surprised 36-year-old Nida showed up to Ayden’s dentist appointment recently, Parks, 41, revealed she wasn’t at all.

“I schedule all of the children’s doctor visits, and I always make sure Apollo has all the information,” she explains. “We love our sons, and I always want to give Apollo the tools to be an effective father.”

But her main goal is to be “Wonder Woman” to her little boy.

“As a mother I have never been as touched to hear my son refer to me as a Super Mommy,” she reveals. “I hope that he will always feel and know that I would jump leaps and bounds for him and his brother.”

Still, as a busy working mom, Parks says that “it is a constant struggle” to balance work and her boys’ needs.

“So him feeling that way really validates my efforts in keeping that balance, she gushes.

Teresa Giudice's Daughter Gia Seeks Donations for Her 3KT Group Music Video
The show must go on.

At least that's the attitude Gia Giudice is taking when it comes to her burgeoning music career.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice's eldest daughter is taking financial matters into her own hands, asking for online donations to help make her music dreams come true.

Despite the fact that her parents will soon serve time in prison for multiple charges, including bankruptcy fraud, the 13-year-old singer is looking on the bright side.

"Obviously, any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting. But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we'll get through this," she recently told Access Hollywood, adding, "It's going to be fine and when it's over, we're going to be better than ever."

But while the cash-strapped family is dealing with hefty fines and legal fees, Gia isn't putting her music on hold. A member of the group 3KT, the band she started with pals Alexa Maetta, 16, and Christianna Cardinale, 14, Gia and her friends launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their upcoming video.

"3KT love our fans! We want to give you an awesome original Christmas music video in time for the holiday!" reads a message on their Kickstarter page, which seeks to raise $7,500 by Dec. 12.

As for what the parentals think of her pop star aspirations, "My parents think it's fun," Gia told Access Hollywood. "I just want to make them proud."

Cynthia Bailey Slams Porsha Williams: “Keep My Name Out of Your Mouth!”
It’s no surprise Porsha Williams is at odds with Cynthia Bailey, considering she has a “little sis-big sis” relationship with Cynthia’s recent ex-pal, NeNe Leakes, and Cynthia has been hanging out with Porsha’s foe, Kenya Moore. However, the image of these two really getting into it in a sneak peek of the November 23 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta is still quite jarring!
Who knew Cyn had it in her? The supermodel is definitely showing a new, more confrontational side of herself in Season 7, and this clip proves that it’s here to stay. While we’re not sure what exactly prompts the tiff, we can tell that both ladies are riled up. Cynthia — looking like an old timey reporter in a pageboy cap and thick-rimmed glasses — first raises her voice to the recently-demoted Porsha while the two are sharing a meal. 

“You say something crazy about me, I’m gonna say something crazy about you,” she asserts, as Porsha talks over her, “If you aren’t thinking about me, why are you commenting?” To that, Cynthia replies, “You keep my name out your mouth, I’ll keep your name out my mouth,” and Porsha fires back, “That’s very childish.” 

Then, sounding eerily similar to her former Miss USA pal, Cynthia spits, “Do not come for me.” ...Unless I come for you? Isn’t that how it goes?

To be fair, Porsha also reuses a familiar term or two (coined by the aforementioned NeNe). “Flip-flopper, you’re two-faced! Go ahead and turn around so I can see your other face!” Porsha says about her co-star to the Bravo cameras.

Along with that fight over apparent gossip, this Episode 3 will also bring us Kenya’s beloved aunt (and the woman Andy Cohen calls RHoA’s “moral compass”), who tells her it’s “very important to forgive everyone.” Phaedra Parks? NeNe? We can’t wait to find out who will be receiving this forgiveness.

Then we have Porsha and NeNe discussing new Housewife Claudia Jordan — which, of course, turns to some shade-throwing courtesy of NeNe. “The thirst is real,” the soon-to-be Broadway star quips.

And finally, there’s Phaedra finding out from Kandi Burruss that Apollo Nida apologized to Kenya for lying about their rumored tryst. Boy does she look shocked. Cut to: Apollo at the lawyer’s office apparently going through with his divorce threats from the premiere!

Lisa Vanderpump Reveals It Was Brandi Glanville Who Slapped Her in 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Trailer
Fee-fi-FOE-fum! Lisa Vanderpump joined Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny on Monday, Nov. 17, where the Brit revealed the identity of the culprit who slapped her in the explosive Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five trailer. (Us Weekly revealed the trailer earlier this month.)

The no-nonsense restaurateur, 54, first called out McCarthy, 42, for comments she made while appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Brandi Glanville earlier this year. (In February, McCarthy questioned Vanderpump's motives on Andy Cohen's show. "I think Lisa's looking out for her spin-off…" McCarthy observed. "I think she's creating drama.")

Vanderpump went on Monday's show to put McCarthy in her place. "You can come on Watch What Happens Live and back me up for a change!" she joked, while the former View co-host unabashedly responded: "I'd love to call in and let's just trash Brandi. I'll be a s---starter for you."

The always-entertaining Glanville, 42, remained the main topic of conversation between Vanderpump and McCarthy on Monday. "How do you not punch some of these bitches in the face?" McCarthy commented, following up with the burning question: "Who ended up smacking you?"

"Well, your very good friend," Vanderpump responded. "The one you were on Watch What Happens Live! with — the one that you were backing."

"She hit you?!" a shocked McCarthy yelped. "Tell me you hit her back!"
While the reality TV veteran remained mum on what happened after the slap, she said the aftermath is still ongoing. "I'm not giving you final page of that book," Vanderpump said. "It was right at the end of filming, but it definitely changed the dynamic for me. I tried really hard, despite the fact that I was on that bloody show."

NeNe Leakes: ‘I’ll Make My Donation When I Get Ready To Make It’
NeNe Leakes said Kenya Moore took her time making a donation to the Detroit Public Schools, and NeNe’s not rushing to match those funds, just because Kenya finally gave her money.

“I’ll make my donation when I get ready to make it. She made hers when she got ready,” NeNe recently told TMZ.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans likely remember that NeNe challenged Kenya to make a $20,000 donation to a charity of her choice, and NeNe said she would match that donation.

Now, that Kenya has given her money, “RHOA” fans have been waiting to see whether NeNe will keep her word. Though she spoke about a “statute of limitation” on “Watch What Happens Live,” NeNe clarified that she never said she would not keep up her end of the bargain.

“Did I say I wasn’t going to pay the Detroit Schools? Did you hear me say that?” she asked. “No one heard me say that… There was no time where you heard me say I wasn’t going to make a donation.”

According to NeNe, she needs to do some investigating before forking over those thousands.

“We made to make sure Kenya made a payment first of all,” she said. “We also need to make sure they are a charity…and we made to make sure they are active…You have to make sure they’re credible.”

NeNe pointed out that some of her “RHOA” cast members have been less than truthful in other situations. She did not name Kenya specifically, but reasoned that she needs to check the facts first before being so generous.

“What I know is there’s a bunch of lies out there and I’ll pay when I get ready just as she did,” she said.

After 5th Attack on a Human, Kim Richards Finally Sends Pit Bull to Trainer
After Kim Richards's beloved pit bull Kingsley attacked her niece, Alexia Umansky, earlier this month, the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has temporarily removed the dog from her home.

"He's in a good place," Richards told TMZ on Saturday. "He's safe and with a trainer."

But the decision to send her dog away didn't come easy, despite a total of five reported incidents where Kingsley attacked humans.

"At this point I am looking into options to what the next step is for Kingsley," Richards, 50, said in a statement received by the New York Post after Kim's sister, Kyle (who also appears on the show), confirmed that her daughter had been bitten

"Regarding Alexia: She was attacked by a dog and has to have surgery. As always, she is trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Thank you for your thoughts & well wishes," Richards posted on Facebook Nov. 4.

Despite the animal's aggressive behavior, it doesn't appear that the mom of four – who got the dog to be her companion once her children moved out of the house – has any plans to put him down.

"As many of you can relate, he is my best friend," says Richards. "This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first."
