Tamra & Eddie Judge Only Discussed Having Kids For Storylines Purposes

Tamra and Eddie Judge pretend to be a content couple on Real Housewives of Orange County, but when it comes to their desire to build a family together, RadarOnline.com has learned, they’re faking it! Despite an ongoing storyline on the Bravo show about Tamra’s desire to have a baby with Eddie, sources tell Radar her newly awakened maternal instinct is complete BS — and she is physically incapable of giving birth again anyways!

Tamra, 46, “doesn’t want another baby, no way,” an insider said. “It’s all for a storyline for the show. Tamra doesn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night for feedings and diaper changes! It’s the last thing that she wants.

“After Eddie and Tamra had been dating for a few months, he actually asked her how she felt about having more kids,” the source said. “At that point, Eddie very much wanted to have kids with her. However, that is no longer the case. Even if Tamra could have kids — which she can’t, because she had her tubes tied several years ago — Eddie doesn’t want that added responsibility.”
Meanwhile, Tamra is fighting her ex-husband Simon Barney in court for custody of her three kids with him: Sidney, 15, Sophia, 8, and Spencer, 13, as Radar has extensively reported.

NeNe Leakes In Talks To Become Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother In Broadway Musical

Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes and The View‘s Sherri Sheppard are both competing to become Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the Broadway musical, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, “Both ladies really want the role, and have already auditioned to land the role as Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the Broadway musical.

“Also in talks to become the next Ella/Cinderella is KeKe Palmer.”

Palmer previously played the role of Cinderella in Nickelodeon’s modern day version adaptation, Rags.
The stage version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella debuted on Broadway in 2013.

After seven years as a co-host on The View, Shepherd announced she was leaving the morning chat fest.

“It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on,” Shepherd previously said in a statement. “I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and Bill Gedde for giving me the opportunity.

“I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey.”

Leakes is “truly hoping to get the role. She feels that it would be a great opportunity and her fans would definitely turn out to support her. It would also be a great storyline for the Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the source added.

Brandi Glanville Turns Being A Lush Into Business Venture

Brandi Glanville doesn’t keep her love of wine a secret while filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, Brandi has gotten drunk while filming and viewers have been very harsh with her, as she is the single mother of two children. But Brandi doesn’t drink when she hangs out with her boys. They don’t film the show with her thanks to her ex-husband’s demands, something Glanville is very upset about.

Brandi has long been known as the troubled drinker and there have been various reports about her needing rehab. But rather than listen to her skeptics, Glanville is now getting creative with her image. Rather than continue to drink and party, Brandi is thinking about how she can make money from her love of alcohol. Brandi Glanville, the reality star, is becoming a business woman.

According to a new Bravo report, Brandi Glanville is working on a new line of wines. However, she doesn’t have a catchy name for her product line just yet. Apparently, “Brandi Glanville Wines” in itself is not a good name. “I cannot come up with anything I love!” she revealed on Twitter. Fans of hers have suggested names such as Brandonnay or Glamville.

Of course, Brandi Glanville is also known as the bestselling author of Drinking & Tweeting and its sequel Drinking & Dating. Wine isn’t just something that she decided to do, even though many other housewives have created alcoholic beverages and wine products before her. Given her love for wine, this new alcoholic line makes sense for her.
While Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson didn’t create their own line of wines on The Real Housewives of Orange County, they did create a club, where they sampled different kinds of wines. Brandi’s former best friend, Lisa Vanderpump, has also launched her own wine.

Teresa Giudice was the first to launch her own line of drinks among her friends on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and she followed Bethenny Frankel, who was the first to launch her Skinnygirl Cocktails a few years back, while filming the third season of The Real Housewives of New York.

But Brandi may not get too much support from her fellow housewives. Even though she has been filming the show, Glanville is still feuding with her former best friend, Lisa, and she has been trying to resolve her issues with former housewife, Adrienne Maloof, as discussed here at The Inquisitr.

It is possible that Adrienne will return to the show in some format, whether as a full housewife or as a friend of the housewives. Adrienne infamously divorced her husband while filming the show. The divorce came out of nowhere, but carried allegations of domestic abuse. Glanville was told she was at fault for Adrienne’s divorce from Paul Nassif.

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Ratings Continue To Plummet, Lowest Viewership Ever!

Hot on the trail of their lowest season premiere episode ever, ratings for the Real Housewives of New Jersey continue to plummet as the ladies brought in their lowest viewership ever for a single episode last Sunday, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. 

Season 6 — featuring fan favorites Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo and newbies Teresa Aprea, Nicole Napolitano and Amber Marchese — debuted on July 13 only bringing in 2.1 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic, and slipped a whopping 500,000 viewers the next week. 

Titled O, Christmas Tre, the season’s second episode aired on July 20 and only brought in 1.6 million viewers, the New Jersey franchise’s lowest ratings ever. 

The low ratings come just one day after Radar exclusively reported that Bravo nixed Giudice, 42, from Sunday night’s appearance on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live and replaced with Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri.

“Teresa was notified by Bravo on Friday that her appearance on Sunday’s show was being canceled,” a Bravo insider told 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.”

Giudice is reportedly on the chopping block with Bravo, with network execs questioning whether she’s worth her $700,000 salary.

In fact, she’s being largely blamed for the show’s failed ratings.

“Bravo bosses are starting to think that Teresa just isn’t worth keeping around if her diva behavior continues. 

The network is very sensitive to the fact that she is facing a looming prison sentence, and has tried to work with her during this difficult time,” an insider told Radar. 

“Teresa should start treating the producers and network executives with dignity and respect. They don’t have the time nor patience to deal with her temper tantrums. Teresa should recognize her only source of income is from the show.”

Phaedra Parks is the latest cast member rumored to be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to new reports, Parks will take a “leave of absence” from the seventh season of RHOA that will start immediately. Sources reveal that the star does not want all her personal problems [Apollo Nida] broadcast to the world, and has decided to leave so she can “focus more on her family following Apollo’s imprisonment.”

Parks allegedly plans on coming back for season eight but show insiders say Bravo producers are not sure that they’ll even allow her to come back.

Bravo Edits Footage Of Amber Marchese's Husband Threatening Teresa Giudice's Brother Joe

Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Amber Marchese‘s husband, Jim, appeared to threaten Melissa Gorga‘s husband, Joe, in a preview clip of Season 6 in connection with Teresa Giudice‘s legal problems. 

However, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting that Bravo edited the footage to make Jim look like the villain, when he was actually trying to help the Giudices.

Amber’s hubby bragged in a preview clip about his ties to the “Attorney General that is prosecuting” to Teresa’s brother, Joe, in a heated confrontation. 

Jim made the claims in a recently released promo clip for the show, where he is shown telling Teresa’s brother in a menacing and threatening tone, “I work with the same f**king attorney general that is prosecuting your brother, you dumbf**k.”

Sources connected to the situation tell us, “Amber and Jim arrived at the party, which was to benefit first responders. Everyone was drunk and loud.

“Jim just wanted to leave, and on his way out, Joe (Gorga), told him to stay and party. Feeling uncomfortable because Jim is actually assisting the Department of Justice in a separate criminal investigation in which his company is an alleged victim. Jim tried to tell Joe that staying could place Teresa and and husband, Joe, in a precarious situation because at that time, their case was still pending.”

The source continued, “It could have been a very bad for Jim and the Giudices to put himself in that position because he didn’t want to be drawn into the ongoing legal issues facing Joe and Teresa. He tried to explain that to Joe Gorga, but he just didn’t understand it, so Jim used the term Attorney General to try and get it thru his head.

The Department of Justice “District of New Jersey” that is prosecuting a case for Jim’s company and is also working on Joe Giudice’s matter.

Discussions between Joe Gorga, Joe Giudice and Jim could have placed them all in legal jeopardy.
Joe and Teresa are scheduled to sentenced on fraud and bankruptcy charges in September. 

Counters another insider, “Any fool can understand the gravity of the situation and that Jim was trying to avoid a potential harm for all. He has the utmost respect for Teresa and Joe, and wants them to be treated fairly in court.”

Bethenny Frankel In Court For 4 Hours, Still Working On Divorce From Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel worked up an appetite for lunch on Thursday while sitting on a courthouse bench for hours with her tender tootsies exposed.

The Skinnygirl Cocktails founder was in Manhattan Supreme Court for a divorce proceeding, but waited two-and-a-half hours for her case to be called. She spent much of the time with her tender feet out of the extremely high black pumps she wore to do battle with her soon to be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.

“What time is it? I’m soooo hungry!” the former member of the “Real Housewives of New York” cast asked her lawyer, Allen Mayefsky, as they headed out of court after about four hours.

Frankel, who gained fame and fortune through products promoting a “skinny” lifestyle for women, was criticized online for being too thin after the 43-year-old posted a picture to Instagram earlier this month of her wearing her 4-year-old daughter’s pajamas.

“This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts,” her caption read. “Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?”

Frankel’s legal team and Hoppy’s lawyers, led by Bernard Clair, have locked horns over a division of assets and other matters.
Frankel has dug in in those fancy heels over how much Hoppy, 42, will get of her reputed $55 million fortune, which was built, in large measure, from the 2011 sale of Skinnygirl Cocktails to Beam Global. Sales of Skinnygirl soared before the couple’s marriage hit the rocks, but dropped 26% last year. The couple was married in March 2010 and separated in December 2012.

After a brief trial earlier this year, the couple settled on a joint custody arrangement over their daughter, Bryn.

Neither Frankel nor Hoppy would talk to reporters as they waited for the case to be called. They sat in separate areas of a courthouse corridor.

Their lawyers were equally mum, both beforehand and after emerging from a closed-door conference with the judge’s law clerk.

Lisa Vanderpump Speaks On ''Opinionated'' Lisa Rinna, Her ''Awful'' Last Season and More

Lisa Vanderpump has quite the dilemma.

What is the fashionable star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills going to wear next Wednesday, July 30 when she's honored with a star at The Palm Springs Walk of Stars?

Hotter-than-hot temperatures in the California desert resort city have been hitting about 100 degrees in recent days.

"There is the rule that you don't wear mid-colored silks because that shows the sweat," Vanderpump told me yesterday when we caught up during a break from filming RHOBH. "I'd love to say I'll be glowing but I'll probably be sweating. I have to figure this one out. And I have to wear makeup for the cameras but it will probably be in a puddle beside me."

So what the heck is Vanderpump doing filming another season of RHOBH? She's made it quite clear over the last few months she wasn't happy with how things turned out last season.

"Yes, last season was awful and I think the viewers were very uncomfortable about that and I did feel like quitting after that," she said. "But time is a great healer and after six months, I kind of reconnected with a couple of them and I thought, 'OK, I'll go back in.'"

Besides, she said, "I was under contract with Bravo…Will I regret it? I don't know."

While Vanderpump declined to confirm if Lisa Rinna is joining the cast (multiple sources have told E! News she is), she is excited by the possibility. "I've known Lisa for 25 years," she said. "I love her and I have an authentic relationship with her…I do think she's very opinionated and vocal and I think that's a good thing for reality television or you fall asleep."

As for fired Housewives Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia, Vanderpump is "sad" to see them go after just one season, but she said, "I don't make the rules."

No word if a camera crew will be following her to Palm Springs next week, but it doesn't matter to Vanderpump. She likes heading to the desert for some time away from L.A. "As an English girl, going there, it's so kind of different and quaint," she said. "But also being a huge advocate of the gay community, I love the way Palm Springs embraces the LGBT community and I think LGBT youth can go down there and they can feel safe down there. That is so awesome these days with what goes on in the world."
