Kim Zolciak Gets Her Own Reality Show
In the new promo ads for the upcoming fifth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, noticeably absent from the crew was a blond-wigged, potty-mouthed Kim Zolciak. But everything’s peachy down in Georgia because Kim’s getting her very own spin-off show! 

TMZ reports that although Kim won’t be returning to the show permanently, she will appear on the upcoming season every now and then.

After filming the temporary spin-off series, Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding, for Bravo earlier this year, Zolciak quickly became a fan favorite, prompting producers to give the reality star a permanent reality show of her own. Filming for the new series has already begun, TMZ reports.

The International Business Times reports that Kim and her NFL hubby Krory Biermann will star in the yet-to-be named reality show, as well as their newest baby Kash Kade.

The couple wed earlier this year after giving birth to their first son KJ, which stands for Kroy Jagger. Kim also has two older daughters from previous relationships, Ariana and Brielle.

Joanna Krupa on Her 'Real Housewives of Miami' Meltdwon: 'I Went A Little Overboard'
On Thursday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Miami, cast member Joanna Krupa definitely gave reality television fans their viewings worth with her drunken tirade at the 10th anniversary of her fiance Romain's club Mynt.

After countless cocktails and a direct view of her sister
Marta's cheating, deejaying ex-boyfriend, the fiery blonde stalked to Romain and delivered an outburst that dropped the jaws of her fellow Housewives.

addressed the incident on her blog, admitting that she "went a little overboard."

"When I look back at the night of the Mynt’s 10-year anniversary, I am definitely not happy about the way I acted— especially letting the alcohol take over, instead of controlling myself. I was hurt by my sister when she said I never defend her to Romain, and that made me extra sensitive that evening, especially after drinking a lot of alcohol at Lisa’s beforehand... I guess I wanted to show Marta that I do love her more than anything, and that she is so important to me, and that I will do whatever it takes to defend her," Krupa wrote. "However, I went a little overboard, and had a major meltdown and tantrum attack, haha!"

Krupa then moved on to her castmate
Adriana, who was shown flirting with Romain at the event. Adriana told him he should date a brunette instead of a blonde.

"I feel bad for her fiancé, because why is she flirting with mine?" Krupa asked. "She wasn't even wasted, so if I had to choose, I’d rather have a meltdown because I had too much to drink (while protecting my sister) than be sober and hit on other men and disrespect my fiancé because I am just so desperate for attention. Hopefully her man wakes up one day and realizes that she is just a big flirt. He should have more respect for himself." Meow!

On next week's episode, Krupa confronts Romain about a nasty cheating rumor and friendships are tested. We can't wait! Catch it next Thursday on Bravo at 9 p.m. ET.

Dina Manzo Says She's "Never" Seen a Malicious Side To Teresa Giudice

To be fair, Dina Manzo is the godmother to one of Teresa's kids (and I'm sure there was absolutely no ulterior motive behind Teresa's decision to choose Dina). But instead of laying low, not saying a thing and quietly supporting her goddaughter, she publicly goes and takes sides with Teresa against her own sister Caroline and then has the nerve to spout this nonsense? Dina's either in serious denial or just plain stupid...or perhaps both:
Even though she’s not on The Real Housewives of New Jersey anymore, Dina Manzo is putting her two cents in regarding the Posche Fashion Show set up. Instead of agreeing with her family members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo — who believe that Teresa Giudice intentionally set up Melissa Gorga — Dina is defending Tre!

Before the Season 4 finale aired on Sunday, Dina tweeted, “My relationship w/ her [Teresa] is based on our relationship w is pleasant, fun & supportive of each other, I never saw a malicious side to her EVER.”
“All I'll say is I filmed my scene AFTER all this & I knew nothing except that everyone was against her...I watch with all of u,” she continued.

We know Dina and Teresa are very close, so we admire Dina for defending her friend, but it was a pretty bold move of her to go against all the housewives and stand by Tre.

Sonja Morgan Struggles After Bad Divorce Settlement Meeting
Divorces can get very ugly, and Sonja Morgan was certainly struggling in the midst of hers on "The Real Housewives of New York City." She broke down after a settlement meeting with her ex-husband, John -- J.P. Morgan heir -- didn't go well at all.

"I came out of that meeting with nothing. And he’s not stepping up to the plate. He doesn’t care about me. He doesn’t care about our daughter," she lamented. She then vowed to sue him.

According to People, Sonja was battling bankruptcy at this time, and nearly $20 million of debt, so her urgency certainly makes sense. And she did sue her husband, as reported by Starcasm.

But all is not as bleak as it seemed in this episode. Sonja appeared on "Watch What Happens: Live" after this episode aired and said of the situation, "We are talking now and we’re trying to work things out." So maybe better are days ahead for Sonja and her daughter.

Richard Wakile Ordered By Court To Pay Outstanding Debt
You’re not a Real Housewives family if you haven’t been taken to court! 

Kathy Wakile’s husband Richard joins Teresa and Joe Giudice as another The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member who has been sued and lost in court, has exclusively learned.

Richard Wakile was taken to small claims court in Passaic County, NJ by Natural Paradise Landscaping over a $2,000 unpaid bill, and the judge ruled against him in court on Monday.

Louie Khalil, the owner of the landscaping company, exclusively told about the settlement the judge ordered Richard to pay.

“I don’t care about the money; I'm just glad the judge saw the truth," Khalil said.

According to Louie, he was hired by the Wakiles to do the landscaping at their house and performed the services for a full year and was never paid, so he cut their service off in October 2011.

“I saw him and told him to pay the bills, we kept asking him to pay, we sent him the bill and when we would call him he would just say ‘f**king sue me’ and hang up on me," he claimed.

“He would say to me ‘Who the f**k do you think you are? I’ll smash your face if I ever hear you say ask me for money again.’”

Louie said Richard was harassing him while he was working on other jobs in the neighborhood, and on June 8, 2012 “came to my truck while I was working, invading my private space. He took pictures of my license plate so I called the cops. They went to his house and told him not to take pictures of my license plate.”

He told it was after this incident that he decided to file the lawsuit and it worked out in his favor.

The judge ruled on September 24 that Richard was responsible for part of the bill and ordered him to pay $792.34 plus $22 in court fees. Louie said Richard cut them a check for an even $815 right after the judge ordered him to pay.

When Richard was spotted in the courthouse for the first hearing on September 19 by Tom Murro, he was evasive on Twitter about the reason he was there, writing: “I'm so afraid that you've exposed me!!! Shaking in my boots, or in my beach wear!!!”

Richard actually filed a counter lawsuit against Louie Khalil and the company, which the judge threw out in court on Monday.

Louie told that he’s sure he’ll see Richard again in the neighborhood and he’s ready for when he does.“If I see him I’m just going to smile at him when I see him. I don’t care.  He can walk away,” he said.

Lea Black and Joanna Krupa Dish On New Girls and Cat Fights
Supermodel Joanna Krupa may be new to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami, but she’s not going to be a wallflower.

On Thursday’s all-new Real Housewives of Miami, supermodel Krupa gets into a fight with Season 1 star Adriana De Moura, and the result isn’t pretty.

“I speak my mind. If someone gets on my nerves, I will let them have it,” Krupa told Celebuzz. “Adriana and I had a conflict relating to another girl on the show. I was trying to be a friend and defend her, but right away, Adriana got in my face, and maybe I said a few things that p—ed her off.”

What else does Krupa have to say about the first cat fight of the season?

“It became physical, which I’ve never done before in my life,” she said. “That’s unfortunate that it got so far. For the viewers, it will be fun, but for me, it wasn’t fun. I’m not proud of it, but you mix some alcohol and some crazy women in a room, and something’s going to happen.”

When she’s not fighting with her castmates, Krupa is juggling her career and her relationship with her fiance of five years, Romain Zago. For most Housewives, the pressure of reality TV puts a strain on their relationships with their significant others. So is Krupa worried about her and Zago’s future?

“That didn’t even cross my mind,” she said. “That was the least of my worries! … A lot of people that break up after reality shows, [the show] just sped up the breakup.” Krupa revealed that this season, viewers will see her and her beau go through many ups and downs.

“If he can’t stick with her through the show, then he can’t stick with her. Period,” added Krupa’s Real Housewives co-star Lea Black, who also sat down with Celebuzz to chat about Season 2.

According to Black, viewers will want to stick around until later in the season, where things heat up between Krupa and her man. “The problem with Romain is that he’s just so damn beautiful, you’ve got to forgive him for whatever he does,” Black explained.

Adrienne Maloof 'Very Happy' Judge Granted Paul Nassif Supervised Visits Of Kids
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is "very happy" that a judge granted supervised visitation of her three sons to estranged husband Dr. Paul Nassif in court Wednesday morning, is exclusively reporting.

"Adrienne doesn't want Paul to have unmonitored visitation with their three sons because she is concerned about their well-being around their dad," a source close to the situation tells Radar. "The judge allowed Paul to have monitored supervision with their three sons on September 29. Adrienne will ask for that to be the norm going forward at the restraining order hearing, which is scheduled for October 6. Adrienne was granted a temporary restraining order last week over allegations of emotional and physical abuse that Paul allegedly inflicted on his family. Adrienne is very happy with the judge's decision in court today and will do whatever the judge asks of her and will follow his orders to the letter."

Nassif went to court Wednesday in an attempt to get his visitation rights re-instated after Maloof obtained a temporary restraining order against him last week, which prohibited him from having any contact with his estranged wife and three kids. The Department of Children and Family Services conducted an investigation into the abuse allegations. 

Nassif told the judge "All of the allegations are false and the children are not being harmed. Children should have both parents in their lives." Social workers found no evidence that Nassif physically or emotionally abused the boys.

The Beverly Hills plastic surgeon said he wants 50 percent custody of the boys, and the judge said those issues would be re-visited at the hearing on October 9 to determine if the temporary restraining order should be made permanent.

In the meantime, Nassif has been granted visitation rights for the next two Saturdays.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion: Jacqueline Laurita Tells Teresa Giudice: "You're Going To Hell!"
The fallout from Strippergate continues!

Teresa Giudice accused former friend Jacqueline Laurita of setting her up on Sunday's Real Housewives of New Jersey finale and when the women reunite for the Bravo hit's season 4 reunion, Laurita again confirms Giudice was indeed the one who started the rumor that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was once a stripper.
"When [Melissa and Joe Gorga] were originally coming on the show, I felt bad for Teresa because I know she didn't want them on the show. She wanted me to call them out on everything," Laurita -- who had a major falling out with Giudice during season 4 -- admits in a preview from Sunday's part one of the reunion.
When Giudice alleges that Laurita would make nasty comments about the Gorgas when cameras weren't around, Laurita flips. "You were telling me what to say and making me uncomfortable. I had other s--t going on in my life and you didn't give a f--k!" she snaps. "All you cared about was exposing them. You wanted me to call out that Melissa was a stripper, you wanted me to call out [cousin] Kathy [Wakile], that she didn't get a designer bag until she was 40, like that meant something."
Giudice continues to maintain her innocence, but Laurita isn't buying it. "You are a liar, you're sick -- you're going to Hell!" she seethes in the clip above.

Insinuating that Gorga was once a stripper at a New Jersey gentlemen's club when in fact she was a bartender, Giudice's betrayal of her sister-in-law cuts especially deep for the Gorga family.

"If she admitted she set me up, I would hear her out," Gorga tells the new issue of Us Weekly. "But if I forgave her, who's to say she wouldn't strike again? And who knows if it's not going to be more desperate next time, with her planting crazier stories. Why should I trust her? I'm not going to take the chance of letting her hurt me. I'm officially done."

Melissa Gorga Says She's "Officially Done" With Teresa Giudice, Claims Teresa Roughed Her Up
When it comes to sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga's guard is up -- permanently.

Singer and mother of three Gorga, 33, opens up in the new issue of Us Weekly about the shocking final season four episodes of Real Housewives of New Jersey -- in which Giudice, 40, plots with Kim DePaola to expose Gorga's supposed stripper past at a Posche fashion show.

"Anyone with two eyes can see that it was a complete setup," Gorga tells Us of Giudice's behind-the-scenes maneuvering to suggest Gorga went topless at Lookers Gentlemen's Club in Elizabeth, NJ -- where Gorga worked as a bartender who kept her clothes on at all times in 2003. "Lookers was not even a strip club," Gorga adds.

Although the ugly incident happened over a year ago, "Watching the episode brought back so many emotions," the "I Just Wanna" singer says. "I was sick. It makes me want to stand in front of Teresa and scream at her. It makes my skin crawl."

The duo have had numerous confrontations since then -- including a "crazy" reunion -- and Gorga says she'll never trust Giudice again.

"If she admitted she set me up, I would hear her out. But if I forgave her, who's to say she wouldn't strike again? And who knows if it's not going to be more desperate next time, with her planting crazier stories. Why should I trust her? I'm not going to take the chance of letting her hurt me," Gorga vows. "I'm officially done.

Kim Richards Says She's “Ready To Love Again”
Kim Richards hasn’t had the best of luck in love, but now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells RumorFix exclusively that she’s finally ready for a “genuine relationship” and hopes to find a special man she can share her life with.
Richards, who has been in and out of rehab for alcohol abuse, tells us that — after working hard to get there — she’s at a good place with herself. “I’m at a point where I really love myself again; if I ever did [love myself] I don’t really know. I feel that I’m really just ready to love somebody.”

She continues, “I think it would just be really nice to love someone, to take care of them, feed them, work out with them, and cook together. If love came along for me, I’d be grateful. Because I’m at a point where I have enough love to share.”

But whatever happened to Kim’s short-lived romance with Ken Blumenfeld? That stock broker from Westlake, California whom she had many problems with — from Blumenfeld maintaining a profile while dating Kim to his secret DUI arrest. Kim’s answer surprised us, telling RumorFix, “I occasionally talk to Ken, and things are copasetic. We don’t have any ill feelings for each other—I’m there if he needs.

'Real Housewives Of New York' Reunion Details Kept Private From Cast
After many leaks to the press from Season 5 of "The Real Housewives of New York City," producers have taken extraordinary measures to make sure details about the top-secret reunion show remain private.

“None of the cast members know the location of the taping,” a Bravo insider said. “They have been told cars will pick them up from their apartments early tomorrow morning and take them to the secret venue to get hair, makeup and dresses. Once they are on the set, no cellphones will be allowed and they will all be warned about the confidentiality agreement they all signed as part of their contract. All they know is the place will have an art deco theme.”

A few seasons ago, Bravo executive Andy Cohen told me that out of all the franchises, he believes it was the New York cast that leaked the most to the press. And even with a savvy new cast that includes media insider Carole Radziwil, the situation seems to have gotten worse.

“The network loves the cast tweeting and doing interviews, but certain story lines must be kept secret,” a cast member said. “Why would anyone tune in to watch the reunion shows if we know exactly what went down by the end of day Thursday?”

Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore Join 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Goodbye Sheree, hello Kenya and Porsha!

On Thursday, Bravo announced the revamped cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta as it gears up for the November premiere of season five. As previously revealed, Sheree Whitfeld departed the reality smash after last season -- and Whitfeld has been replaced by not one but two Southern belles.

Newcomer number one Kenya Moore's biggest claim to fame so far? The single Detroit native, 38, was crowned Miss USA in 1993, and is now works as a film and TV producer via her company, Moore Vision Media.
"Kenya Moore is diva!" one insider tells Us Weekly. "Kenya is in the middle of every fight and stirs up a lot of s***."
Entering the fray alongside Moore is Porsha Stewart, is an Atlanta-raised socialite now married to NFL star Kordell Stewart and mom to stepson Syre.

Predictably, Moore and Stewart don't exactly get along, the insider says: "Kenya has it out for [Porsha]."
Moore and Porsha join returning castmembers NeNe Leakes (now a budding Hollywood actress thanks to her role in TV's The New Normal), Kim Zolciak (she gave birth to her fourth child last month), lawyer/mortician Phaedra Parks, musician/entrepreneur Kandi Burruss and model Cynthia Bailey.

'Real Housewives of Miami' Ratings Flat; Far Behind 'New Jersey,' 'Atlanta'
The ratings for the second episode of "The Real Housewives of Miami" are in, and this is really going to feel a little bit like a broken record.

When you look at the numbers this week from where they were the last time we checked in, one thing is constant: both shows ended up drawing a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is what the network looks for above all else for ad revenue. In the race for total viewers, meanwhile, the premiere ended up having around 40,000 more total viewers in 1.065.

So what does all of this mean when it comes to comparisons? Ultimately, it does not look as though the show is going to be getting a third season for sure. "The Real Housewives" franchise is almost universally a higher-rated one than what "Miami" is showing, and the installments from New Jersey and Atlanta are in particular ratings monsters.
I imagine that fans calling for Bravo to give "Real Housewives of D.C." another shot (and they are out there) will no doubt be using this news to further their claims.

Adrienne Maloof Gets Custody of Kids, Alleges Abuse by Paul Nassif
A judge on Wednesday awarded The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof temporary custody of her three sons, after she alleged that her estranged husband, Paul Nassif, choked one of them last week.

A rep for Nassif confirmed the court decision to PEOPLE, adding that his legal team was blindsided by the allegations, which Nassif denies.

Maloof, 51, claims that Nassif, 50, with whom she is locked in a bitter divorce and custody battle, turned around and choked one of the boys for being rowdy on a drive last Thursday, reported

Later that same day, Maloof alleges, Nassif took one boy who was misbehaving during bathtime and "threw him in the corner."

Nassif's lawyer, Lisa Meyer, characterized the claims as "gamesmanship at its worst," and said Maloof wasn't present during either alleged incident. "It is a sad day when parents have to stoop to the level of making false allegations against another parent," Meyer said.

Maloof has requested a restraining order be taken out against Nassif, which will be heard in court on Oct. 9. In the meantime, the court awarded her a temporary restraining order that denies Nassif the opportunity to contact, or be within 100 yards, of Maloof or their kids, Gavin, 9, and 6-year-old twins, Christian and Collin.

Nassif, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, filed for divorce in August. He has requested joint custody of 9-year-old Gavin and 6-year-old twins Christian and Collin. Maloof is seeking primary custody.

Despite 'RHOJ' Finale Drama Teresa Giudice Hangs Out With Kim “D.” DePaola
Teresa Giudice gets herself into some serious hot water on this week’s finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey after the other housewives accuse her of trying to sabotage Melissa Gorga by revealing that Melissa used to work at a gentleman’s club. Unfortunately for Tre, her friend and Posche boutique owner Kim “D.” DePaola doesn’t exactly do anything to defuse the situation.

Instead, we’ve so far seen Kim D. make matters worse. For example, in last week’s episode she was grilling Melissa’s old boss Angelo about what exactly Melissa did for him, even though Teresa repeatedly asked her to stop.

On Sunday’s episode, we also see Kim D. get into with Joe Gorga after he shows up at the Posche Fashion Show to come to Melissa’s defense.

So, why then, is Teresa still socializing with Kim D. if several members of her family strongly dislike her?

Teresa and Kim D. were spotted out twice together over the past few weeks, first at Posche on Aug. 21, and then at a New York City restaurant on Sept. 11.

Even though the finale was filmed over a year ago and Teresa is currently not speaking to her brother or Melissa, we’re still surprised that she would openly socialize with a person who clearly doesn’t like her family.

Karent Sierra Might Be Liable for Lindsay Lohan Hit-and-Run Case
Here’s a weird one for you: Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra might be liable in Lindsay Lohan’s bizarre hit and run incident in New York City on Tuesday.

How? Apparently the Porsche that LiLo allegedly clipped a pedestrian with used to belong to Karent, until she sold it to artist Domingo Zapata, who was, for some reason, let Lindsay drive his car. According to TMZ, the registration hadn’t been switched from Karent to Domingo yet, so she might be liable.

TMZ explains that New York law holds that the owner of a car that has been in an accident could be held liable for any damage if they gave “express or implied” permission for someone else to drive the car. We’re guessing that Karent probably didn’t give Lindsay express or implied permission to drive the car, but since she gave express permission for Domingo to drive the car, she could possibly be held liable for his decision to hand over the keys to Lindsay.

Of course, this is all up to how a judge will interpret these minor legal details. We’re hoping that Karent isn’t forced to spend any amount of time away from her celebrity dentistry practice to deal to this legal mess.

Melissa Gorga Feels Teresa Giudice Betrayed Her With 'Vindictive And Disgusting' Stripper Stunt
Reality stars Melissa Gorga and Teresa Guidice have had a well-documented rocky road, and it's about to get even rockier, as the 33-year-old Melissa proclaims her sister-in-law has "fooled [her] for the last time" after trying to expose a stripper past that she says didn't exist.

On The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa and friend Kim DePaola confront Melissa with backup from Angelo Vrohdis, a former manager of the Elizabeth, New Jersey strip joint, Looker's Gentlemen Club.

The sexy Melissa, who bartended at the establishment in 2003, compared Teresa's "vindictive and disgusting" turn on her to "a knife in the back."

Melissa said she believes Teresa tried to make her look bad in a possible attempt to hurt her marriage, or simply soothe her own insecurities by spreading her misery around.  She's "a sick individual," Melissa said of Teresa. "It's even sicker that she would put this on national TV."

Melissa said Teresa has a penchant to not take the heat for dust-ups she creates "because she never wants to be the once who looks bad."

Melissa said that while the show's finale was filmed last year, she was sickened watching the incident unfold again recently,  adding that "it makes [her] skin crawl."

She added that Teresa's partners-in-crime in this incident -- DePaola and Vrohdis -- were planted to lend Teresa credibility. (Melissa says "no nudity" was on display at Looker's, "which was not even a strip club," as dancers wore bikinis and lap dances were not given at the venue.)

Melissa, who has three kids with Teresa's brother Joe (Antonia 7, Gino, 5, and Joey, 2), said she had hoped a second try at a friendship with Teresa would take, as she wants her kids and the Giudice children to bond.

Melissa said the falling-out has been especially difficult in her husband Joe, who's "so sick and tired of her bashing us."

Melissa said in the wake of the ambush, she and Joe brooded at home, brokenhearted: "I said, 'Did this really just happen? I was crying. His eyes teared up and he said, 'I don't know what's happened to Teresa."

Melissa told US magazine she's not even "ready to be in the same room with" her sister-in-law these days. "I'm seriously not ready."

Alexia Echevarria Speaks On Why She Can’t Stand New Housewife Karent Sierra

In episode one, you don’t really see it, but I knew her from before. She gave me a very cold greeting so I took it very personally. This was my first time out in six months and I saw her with her smile … and it did bother me because she did know me.”

Alexis Bellino Quits 'Real Housewives of Orange County'

It's official: Alexis Bellino is a quitter. I don't care how much her husband wanted her off the show, this is a bad look. And no one wants to hear about any stupid lawsuits either--the Bellino's have left the building and those two evil bitches, Tamra and Gretchen, are the ones who pushed them out:
Alexis Bellino is saying goodbye to Bravo and the Real Housewives of Orange County.

After three seasons on the reality hit, mom of three Bellino has decided to part ways with the program, a source tells Us Weekly.

"Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity," the insider explains of Bellino's decision to stop filming. Though she is said to have begun contract negotiations with Bravo, the former Housewife "wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County."

In July, Alexis, 35, and her husband, Jim Bellino, spoke out about the verbal bullying and attacks they say they suffered from costar Tamra Barney, who called Alexis "Jesus Jugs" during the 2012 Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special.
"The Real Housewives of Orange County is a reality show that is meant to entertain and engage audiences with the lives of its cast members," the couple told Us Weekly in a statement, adding that they were considering taking legal action against Barney. "This vicious and malicious attack on our family will no longer be tolerated. We have continually tried to take the high road, however, if necessary, we are prepared to defend ourselves against these unfounded, slanderous and defamatory remarks to the fullest extent of the law."
During season 7, Alexis, who is mom to son James, 5, and 4-year-old twin daughters Melania and Mackenna, butted heads with just about every fellow housewife, particularly Barney, former BFF Gretchen Rossi and newcomer Heather Dubrow. 
While the insider tells Us Bellino's mind is made up about next season of RHOOC, a Bravo show rep tells Us "We have not yet made any announcements about a season 8 pick up or casting."

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' To Cast Two New "Friends" For Teresa Giudice?
Now that this season's reunion show has been taped, the producers of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" are deciding which cast members will be invited back, who might be told goodbye and if any new ladies will be asked to join the show.

“They are looking all the time for new cast members for all the franchises,” one insider tells me. “But, nothing gets serious until after the reunion show has been taped and the season comes to an end. Now they are deciding what to do with next season, with the biggest problem being Teresa Giudice.”

Several cast members have confirmed that they had no contact with Teresa after they finished filming last year, until they all sat down in the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City for the reunion show.

“No one wants to tape with Teresa anymore,” two cast members tell me. “She has done so many things to each member of the cast that at this point it is everyone versus Teresa. I know they are looking at several friends of hers to join the show so she has someone to film with. At the moment, no one has been invited back, but we are all pretty sure Teresa will have two new friends.”

Bethenny Frankel Announces That Her Talk Show Has Been Picked Up
Congratulations Bethenny Frankel!   The Real Housewife of New York’s talk show, Bethenny, has been picked up after its six-week trial run this past summer. 
“This lady gave me a talk show,” Frankel said of Ellen Degeneres on Monday’s Ellen Show. Drinking the housewife’s own Skinny Girl tangerine vodka, the two toasted to her new venture. Degeneres will executive produce the talk show along with Warner Bros. Telepictures.  
So what’s the word on Bethenny?  
“We are not going to give a lot of details, because we can’t,” Degeneres said. “But, it is safe to say she will be on television soon. The television show will be back on the air.” 
Frankel’s show was broadcast on FOX stations in six markets this summer including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Dallas and Phoenix. The show performed best in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis. 
As there’s no information on when Bethenny will air, Ellen has decided to bring some segments from the Housewife’s show to her own, such as “Let’s go there.” 
During the hilarious segment, we heard from Lisa, a 39-year-old who confessed she was dating a 78-year-old, and Sherri, a 56-year-old nana who has got a serious crush on rapper Pit Bull.

Melissa Gorga Denies Knowing Stripper Boss
You can run, but you can’t hide! Melissa Gorga found that out the hard way on Sunday night’s episode of The Real Houswives of New Jersey, when her fomer boss at a New Jersey gentlemen’s club made a surprise appearance.

While Teresa Giudice and Kim DePaola headed to a local salon to get their makeup done for the annual Posche Boutique fashion show, a man by the name of Angelo let Teresa in a little secret...Melissa danced at his gentlemen’s club for over a year! Teresa was adament that she didn’t want to hear what Angelo had to say, but Kim D kept pressing him for more dirt.

She danced for me for eight or nine months, give or take. My customers were very sad to see her go,” he said.

Meanwhile, Melissa headed to the fashion show in good spirits after a great meeting with a music executive from California.

“My husband could not be happier,” she said. “He has his wife and his sister happy, and I couldn’t imagine anyone ever doing anything from this point to hurt our relationship again.”

As previously reported, Teresa and Melissa have had their fair share of catfights, but they recently put their claws away and made ammends during a wine trip to Napa Valley.

At the fashion show, all the housewives sat around a dinner table making small talk when Angelo approached the table to talk to Melissa. “Hi remember me right? Angelo,” he said, and with a look of terror on her face, Melissa exchanged pleasantries until Angelo walked away.

“I don’t remember where I know him from, but I know him,” she whispered to Kathy Wakile. “You know when you know somebody?”

Tune in next Sunday to The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo at 10/9c to see if Melissa remembers where she know Angelo from. Maybe Teresa will refresh her memory!

Carole Radziwill Says Thin Bod Is Due To A "Crazy Metabolism"
Lucky lady!

Carole Radziwill was named one of Us Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers of 2012 and she sure lived up to the name Wednesday night! The Real Housewives of New York City star looked stunning at Us Weekly's celebration at STK Midtown.
"My metabolism is so steady," she revealed. "I have a crazy metabolism -- it's one of the great mysteries of my life."

The honoree paired one of her favorite dresses from her closet with a Chanel coat for the evening. "I'm blessed," Radziwill told Us. "God gave me a whole bunch of other issues, but my body is good."

One of those other issues is fighting with cast members on her Bravo reality show. This past week's episode featured a showdown between Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher during their vacation to St. Barths.

"Sonja and Ramona love to have fun and cocktails," Radziwill explained. "I think a week together you learn a lot about people and I think that led to a lot of our undoings."
Heather Thomson, who is normally at odds with Singer, told Us she's taking Singer's side in this case. "On the trip, Sonja and Ramona were fun to watch. I felt like I was tuning into a TV show," said Thomson, who is also one of Us' Most Stylish New Yorkers. "I didn't find the same Ramona there that I found in New York. I didn't think that her crime deserved what happened." 
And even Aviva Drescher is taking some of the blame for the blowup fight. "I think they did push me, but I don't think they deserved what they got from my shotgun mouth, which I was trained for in law school," the Most Stylish New Yorkers honoree told Us. "There are always two sides to the story, but when you throw a pie in someone's face it's a little hard to explain why you did it. I feel like I threw a pie and I sort of feel badly."

But Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was cheering Drescher on! "I was grinning, I was like, 'Go Aviva!' " she told Us. "I was happy to see her arrive and I think she came down hard on them, but I like to see women with strength."

Teresa Giudice Blames Melissa Gorga For Daughter Milania Hurting Due To Limited Contact With Cousins
Cast members from The Real Housewives of New Jersey filmed the Season 4 Reunion last week, and it was the first time Teresa Giudice had seen her brother, Joe Gorga, in over a year.

In her latest blog Teresa opens up about what the separation from her family is doing to her, and more importantly, her four daughters.

According to Teresa, “Milania [Tre’s daughter] and Antonia [Melissa and Joe’s daughter] have been best friends since the day they were born, and it hurts Milania a lot not to get to see her cousin as much as she used to.” 

“I love that little girl so much and would do anything to have her over more. We'll keep inviting her and our door is always open. Hopefully her mama will let us have a play date soon,” she continues.

Yet Teresa doesn’t stop there. She continues to discuss her fractured family, and even blames Melissa for keeping all of the cousins apart. “We've haven't filmed in a year, and coincidentally, we haven't seen Melissa and her kids in a year (except for Melissa's solo appearance at Gia and Milania's birthday party in January). Maybe if the cameras come back around, we'll see ‘all-about-family Melissa’ again too,” she concludes.

Marysol Patton Says Season 2′s 'Real Housewives of Miami' Cast Vibe Is ‘Completely Different’
It certainly came as a surprise to many Bravo viewers when the cable channel announced in February that it was going forward with a second season of The Real Housewives of Miami after a long hiatus and Season 1’s mixed reviews.

Season 2 got a retooling under a new production company, Purveyors of Pop. Plus, returning castmembers socialite Lea Black, art curator Adriana de Moura and PR maven Marysol Patton will be joined by four newbies: Model Lisa Hochstein, model/actress Joanna Krupa, attorney Ana Quincoses and celebrity dentist Karent Sierra.

When Celebuzz recently asked returning castmember Patton whether she was surprised by who was asked to return and who wasn’t, she simply said with a giggle, “No, I was not.”

What else did Marysol tell us about the changes on Season 2?
“I think last season there was just a problem with maybe one person, maybe two people,” she revealed.

As it stands, Season 1 castmembers Larsa Pippen and Christy Rice aren’t returning. Alexia Echevarria, who has been helping with her son’s rehab from a car accident earlier this year, will make appearances on the season.

“There’s a lot of us and there’s a lot of personalities,” Patton said of the current castmembers’ vibe. “It’s completely different, totally different.”

What can fans look forward to this season? “There’s a lot of heartfelt [moments], a lot of funny [moments], drama,” Patton said.

The show’s unofficial housewife would of course be the PR pro’s self-professed “bruja” mother, Elsa Patton. She was a favorite on Season 1 for many viewers and it seems her daughter could be her biggest fan.

“I always want it to be about my mom,” she told us. “I was looking forward to all the things that I saw her do and she films a lot without me too. So I’m just looking forward to seeing that, because the producers are always, ‘God, she’s so funny.’”

Gretchen Rossi Says She’s Not Engaged to Slade Smiley
Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi took to Twitter last night to shoot down some rumors.

After a recent OK! Magazine party attended by Gretchen and Slade, Reality Tea  reported, “I asked Gretchen if she was single, to which she said 'yes, but engaged; he's over there.’ I noticed a nice multi-diamond cocktail-style ring on her right hand and her left was bare, so I asked her where her giant blingin’ rock was. She said ‘I don't need anything like that, just him.'”

The source also claimed to overhear Gretchen’s not-fiancé Slade Smiley call Real Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Giudice a d*****bag.

According to Gretchen, though, both stories are bogus. 

“Where do people come up this sh*t?For the record none of this is true, & Slade doesn't even know Joe from RHNJ!” she tweeted. 

While Gretchen hopes to tie the knot with Slade “One day soon, maybe!” congratulations are not quite in order just yet. And it looks like Joe doesn’t need to trek to Orange County to hash it out with Slade, either!
