Did Joanna Krupa Sleep with Yolanda Hadid’s Ex-husband?
A new rumor is surfacing that Real Housewives of Miami’s Joanna Krupa may have had something to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Foster’s divorce from Mohamed Hadid.

Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis is claiming that Joanna had an affair with Mohamed for a month while he was still married to Yolanda, according to RumorFix. Mohamed and Yolanda divorced in 2000.

Joe says that Mohamed first spotted Joanna while he was driving in Los Angeles, and he pulled over and gave her his number. Joe claims that Yolanda caught Mohamed with Joanna, “and that was the end of their marriage.”
Joe goes on to say that Mohamed then asked him “to take Joanna off my hands.” Joe has claimed that he dated Joanna for six months and then dated her sister, Marta, for a year and a half. However, Joanna says she never dated Joe, calling him “old” and “ugly.”

Joanna’s camp is denying Joe’s story about her and Mohamed, and we must admit that we find the story to be more than a little hard to believe. Plus, Joe is clearly angry at Joanna for denying that they dated, so he has a reason to lash out at her.

Yolanda hasn’t commented, but her post on her Bravo blog this week does mention that she has been cheated on in the past.

In regards to Brandi Glanville’s situation with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, Yolanda writes, “Infidelity leaves such a brutal mark on a woman's psyche and self worth. I know because I was there many summers ago, but it still hits home.”

We’re hoping that there’s no truth to this rumor, but we shall see.

Teresa Giudice Denies Report She's Going To Divorce Husband Joe After The Holidays

Said it before and I'll say it again: I'd be shocked, shocked, shocked if the Giudice's ever broke up. After all, if there's two people who belong together it's these two lovebirds....besides, for the planet's safety they had better stay together too:
More drama in the world of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ as a new report claims that Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice will be breaking up after the holidays! Do you believe it? 

The epic battles that Joe and Teresa Giudice get themselves into on The Real Housewives of New Jersey are well documented, but has it reached a level of no return? Reports are flying that their marriage is in shambles. Read on for all the sad details! 

“Teresa will leave Joe regardless of the outcome of his court case,” an insider told the Enquirer, referring to Joe’s driver’s license fraud case in which he faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, adding, “But to keep up appearances, they’ll play happy family until that time. Her game plan is to make nice with Joe over Thanksgiving and Christmas, dress up their girls — Gabriella, Audriana, Milania and Gia — in their finest party clothes, plaster a fake smile on her face and act as if all is well. But in reality, things couldn’t be worse between them!” 

The report continues to mention the real reason of the discomfort in the marriage is Joe’s cheating and lack of consistent income. Not to mention him being caught calling Teresa a “b*tch” and a “c**t” on camera. Everything has now come to a head and Teresa is fed up! 

When reached out to Teresa’s rep for comment, they informed us the story is “totally false.”

Kim Zolciak Owes Celebrity Planner Over $1 Million For Wedding

Her own parents have called Kim Zolciak a "pathological liar". She's already been caught lying about being evicted from her "dream house". Reports say she hasn't paid her wedding planner. She STILL hasn't paid Kandi Burruss for producing "Tardy for the Party"....anyone stupid enough to do business with this woman deserves what they get:
Not only did Kim Zolciak skip out on paying her wedding planner for throwing her nuptials last year, but has exclusively learned she owes the company more than $1,000,000.

Kim and her hubby Kroy Biermann enlisted the help of party planner to the stars, Colin Cowie, for their special day last August and according to one of Kim's close family members she assumed Bravo would pick up the tab!

"Kim said that she was having to pay her wedding planner over $1,000,000 for her big ceremony and Bravo wasn't picking up the tab," the family member exclusively revealed to

"They shortly after had a falling out."

As first confirmed through the valet company working Kim's wedding, she still has a large outstanding bill and that Colin's company has not yet received a penny from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

"Colin Cowie Lifestyle (CCL/CCE) contracted with AAA Parking to provide valet parking services on November 11, 2011 at Ms. Zolciak’s residence in Roswell, Georgia. The event and valet parking services were extended by an additional hour at the request of Colin Cowie representatives resulting in an additional charge," a representative of AAA Parking said.

"The total invoice of $2,550 remains unpaid. CCL/CCE has advised us that they have not been paid for any services they provided for the Zolciak wedding."

Colin's team has remained hush-hush on the matter only telling, "We do not comment on our business relationships with our clients," and Kim has denied owing any money for the wedding.

Yolanda Foster Still Feels The Pain From Being Cheated On
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Yolanda Foster says she was proud of the toast that Kim Richards made in Ojai in Season 3, Episode 4 but she wishes that the other women had taken it to heart.

“I love Kim's speech at the dinner table. It's so appropriate for this group of women,” Yolanda writes in her Bravo blog. “Unfortunately, they did not hear a word she said because they went straight into rehashing the past and the drama begins there.”

Yolanda admits that seeing Brandi Glanville deal with the pain of her divorce brings up memories of when she herself was cheated on.
“Infidelity leaves such a brutal mark on a woman's psyche and self worth,” Yolanda says. “I know because I was there many summers ago, but it still hits home.” (While Yolanda, of course, didn’t specify who cheated on her, there is speculation that Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa may have had an affair with Yolanda’s ex, Mohamed Hadid, while they were still married.)

Yolanda thinks that the women went too far in discussing Kelsey Grammer’s new body ink. “I can't help but feel bad for Kelsey Grammer having a bunch of girls discussing his private parts,” she says. “So disrespectful. . .so high school. . .”

She makes it clear that she is on Team Lisa in Lisa Vanderpump’s feud with Adrienne Maloof, saying, “Lisa has rightfully stood her ground.”

And Yolanda doesn’t think Kyle Richards is the best driving coach. “I think [Alexia] will be better off asking the driving school for lessons Kyle seems a bit uneasy in the passenger seat.” Ouch!

Cynthia Bailey Calls Out Phaedra Parks’ Butt Dial
Cynthia Bailey busts Phaedra Parks and Kim Zolciak‘s moving problems continue on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The moment catwalk diva Cynthia joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers and her co-stars alike have kvetched about the way she allows people to walk all over her. Apparently Ms. Bailey finally got the memo!

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Sunday’s episode, “Un-Moved.”

Phaedra planned yet another over-the-top birthday for her son Ayden. The legal eagle told hubby Apollo she spared no expense for their only child’s birthday at the Atlanta aquarium. Ayden isn’t the average kid, after all!

Phaedra invited NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Kim and Cynthia to the festivities, but only songbird Kandi showed up to the extravaganza. Later, Kandi and Phaedra discussed how much of a nightmare Kim’s self-proclaimed “dream home” became, with the expectant mother and her family scrambling to move within 48 hours of an eviction notice.

The women wondered if Kim would show up, and decided to give her a call. Kim confessed she couldn’t attend because of her crazy move, but her ATL frenemies wondered if she was blowing them off again.

Kim was still livid over her landlord and interior designer giving her the heave-ho. She and her family of five were going to have to move back into her townhouse. Oh the humanity!

As Sweetie attempted to calm her boss lady down, Kim screamed at the movers, claiming they were taking too much time on her dime. Aren’t all of these women supposed to be, um, rich?

Across town, NeNe and Cynthia caught up on the latest gossip. Ms. Leakes told her girlfriend how she tried to be gracious to Kim and Sweetie when they showed up at the empowerment party. NeNe then clued Cynthia in on how Phaedra truly felt about the model, courtesy of a voicemail a mutual friend received.

It seems Phaedra “butt-dialed” someone and left a message trashing Cynthia for not attending little Ayden’s 2-year-old birthday party. Cynthia decided to have a chat with Phaedra about her distasteful comments.

What did Bell Biv Devoe sing, never trust a big butt that knows how to dial? Well, something like that…
Cynthia was quick to confront Phaedra, who feigned innocence. According to Phaedra, someone was trying to start drama between them. Even when Cynthia told Phaedra she’d heard the conversation, the attorney continued to deny, deny, deny. Will Cynthia sustain Phaedra’s objections, or is this RHOA friendship about to be thrown out of court?

Kim DePaola Reportedly Signs On To 'Real Housewives of New Jersey'

Wouldn't Kim D. be better suited for "Mob Wives" or something of that nature?
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” better get ready to rumble. 

An inside source close to the show tells us there’s a new cast-member on the block for season five, but fans of the reality show may already know her name: Kim [D] DePaola. 

“She’s already signed her [full-time] contract,” says the source, who adds that DePaola begins filming for season five on Tuesday. 

Bravo reality addicts may remember DePaola as a friend of Teresa Giudice — who will also return for the fifth installment — and an agitator of Giudice’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga. 

On the reunion show for the fourth season, DePaola admitted to concocting a plan to make it appear as if Gorga had worked as a stripper. 

The drama mama is also the owner of Posche Boutique in Wayne, N.J., and has appeared in a number of episodes. 

There are other moves in the works: While former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Danielle Staub has denied she’ll return to the “New Jersey” cast, the insider says producers will be “bringing her back midseason to stir up drama.”

Camille and Kelsey Grammer Battle Over Beverly Hills Home
Camille Grammer is gearing up to battle her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer over the home they once shared as a family.

Kelsey reportedly wants to move back into the 10,000 square foot Beverly Hills house, even though he just purchased a new home in the area.

Camille, who currently stars on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” has rushed to court to try and obtain an emergency court order to keep her ex and his new family from moving in to the home.

A source close to the former couple revealed, “There is an enormous mortgage on the property which is draining both Kelsey and Camille -and they have been trying in vain to unload the property. They currently have the house listed $16,000,000, having just lowered it by a million.”

Camille fears that if Kelsey moves in with his new wife Kayte and their baby daughter that the luxury home will be even harder to unload.

The judge didn’t issue an order but has set a hearing for December. After the mansion is sold, Kelsey and Camille will split the money.

Things aren’t looking too great for Kelsey Grammer after Starz announced they are canceling the drama “Boss” after just two seasons. On the show, Grammer played a tyrannical Chicago mayor named Tom Kane.

Camille Grammer, 44, seems to be in a better place these days after finding love with her 35-year-old stud Dimitri Charalambopoulos.

Bethenny Frankel Reveals Her Ideal Drinking Buddy And What Her Last Meal Would Be
If anyone can offer sound advice on how to avoid holiday overindulgence, it's our favorite tell-it-like-it-is "Real Housewives" alum Bethenny Frankel. The health-conscious celebrity chef and Skinnygirl mogul has teamed with California Almonds to tout the nutritional merits of nuts, and is on a mission to promote healthy snacking this season. While Frankel is clearly an expert on all things culinary, we wanted to know what's really in her fridge, and more importantly, what her last meal would be.

What's your No. 1 tip for smart snacking this time of year?
Find a 200 calorie great-investment snack. Something that has protein and fiber. That’s why almonds are a great snack. I have a great granola with dried fruit and almonds. So when you get to wherever you’re going, you start Thanksgiving dinner or go to a cocktail party, you’ve already had something. You’re spoiling your appetite, which is a good thing. You’re not so ravenous that you can’t make a smart decision.

What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to unnecessarily decadent holiday fare?
A lot of things bother me -- the amount of butter people put in things when you could reduce it in half. You can make a low-fat egg nog. You could use multigrain bread instead of regular bread. There are so many great things you could do with sweet potatoes; you don’t have to have marshmallows and maple syrup on it. You could have a little bit of real maple syrup and a little bit of butter. People just pour it on, and they don’t really need to. 

What's your guiltiest pleasure?
I think you should indulge during the holidays. No one ever got fat by having a couple bites of pumpkin pie or by having some stuffing. It’s just when people gorge and binge and feel guilty about it, and then the next day wake up thinking that they’re going to go on a diet. Diets don’t work. What works is allowing yourself in moderation. 

What did you have for dinner last night?
I had a cobb salad and oysters and part of a crab cake and a little bit of a grilled artichoke and a lot of different little things that I shared with other people. And truffle fries.

What's one item that's always in your refrigerator?
Grape tomatoes, romaine lettuce, soy milk, organic vegetables, veggie chicken nuggets, organic soups, brown rice, pasta.

What's the silliest thing you've ever lied about?
That Curious George is asleep. We can’t watch “Curious George” because he’s sleeping.

If you could ask Kim Kardashian any question, what would it be?
Do African-American men have larger penises than white men?

What shows are always on your DVR?
“Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Not many. Just random “Housewife” installments for a rainy day. I’ll DVR stuff for my kids once in a while. 

What's your go-to excuse?
“Hold on, my daughter’s throwing up--let me call you right back.”

What's on your nightstand? Gone Girl, a coaster, a bottle of water and a candle.

Adrienne Maloof Goes 'Ballistic' Over Discussing Her Failed Marriage with Paul Nassif on Air
Meow! Catfight alert! 

Fans of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” have been less than impressed by the level of drama in the first few episodes of the third season, but an insider tells us that’s about to change. 

“Adrienne [Maloof] and Brandi [Glanville] get into a HUGE fight about Adrienne and Paul [Nassif]’s marriage,” the show source reveals to Confidenti@l, adding that Bravo producers would be “stupid” to cut the dramatic big blowout from the show, which airs on Bravo on Mondays at 9 p.m. 

But if Maloof, who filed from divorce from plastic surgeon Paul Nassif in July, has her way, the scene will never see the light of day. 

“Adrienne has been very controlling about what she allows the cameras to film because she wants to project a certain image of having the perfect life,” says the insider, adding that Maloof went “ballistic” over the filmed fight with Glanville. 

“Brandi felt Adrienne was being inauthentic and disregarded her wishes [to not discuss her marital problems on camera] while the two of them were at dinner,” continues the insider. “[Maloof] held in her rage but when she walked off camera she screamed at Brandi and the production staff.” 

And there’s more. 

Maloof was so mad, the source says she “called Bravo and quit the show but they held her to her contract and forced her to come back.” 

The multimillionaire businesswoman didn’t put all the blame on Glanville. “Adrienne feels Lisa [Vanderpump] put Brandi up to this,” says the source, adding the only reason Maloof, who began feuding with Vanderpump in season 2, mended the relationship was to get off Vanderpump’s verbal “hit list.” 

The source tells Confidenti@l producers have been pleasantly pleased with at least one — or should we say two — things about season three: The latest additions to the “Beverly Hills” cast, Yolanda Foster, the fourth wife of music producer David Foster, and Marisa Zanuck.

Kim Zolciak Talks Leaving 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' & Returning With A Spin-Off

A spin-off show only hoodrats could love:
Kim Zolciak might be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she's not saying goodbye to reality TV just yet!

In Touch can exclusively reveal that Kim will be back with a second season of her spinoff show Don't Be Tardy For the Wedding, which chronicled her Nov. 11 nuptials to hubby Kroy Bierrman.

The second season will have a name change, yet details of this have not yet been released.

While Kim says walking away from the show that made her a household name wasn’t easy, she's thrilled to be moving away from cast drama and focusing on a show about her family.

“It’s going to a fun, lighthearted show about our crazy everyday life,” says Kim tells In Touch. “My amazing husband is doing awesome in the NFL, we’re building a home, we have a teenager, a tween and two babies,” she says about daughters Brielle, 15, and Ariana, 10 (from a previous marriage), and her sons with Kroy: KJ, 17 months, and Kash, 3 months.

No premiere date has been set, but expect Kim to return in the Spring when Atlanta Housewives wraps.

Marysol Patton Says She's Ready ‘To Get Married Again’
The Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton is banking on the third time being the charm when it comes to marriage.

“I really would like to get married again,” Patton tells Celebuzz. “I know that sounds silly, but if Liz Taylor did it eight, nine times, why can’t I do a third?”

Fans of the Bravo reality series are well acquainted with the public relations pro’s romantic history. Her engagement and second marriage to French businessman Philippe Pautesta-Herder was a major storyline on the show’s first season. And this season (shot almost two years ago, according to Patton) portrays its demise, something Patton says was hard to go through in front of the cameras.

“I was really, really, really sad the whole time we were filming,” she says. “I was an emotional wreck. My father was sick. My parents had just separated. I was going through a divorce. I was filming. I was running my company. I had a lot on my plate and it was a really hard time for me. I was just an emotional mess, but I tried.”

Patton says that her favorite parts of the filming were when she shot the commentary interviews and got away from the show’s dramatic group situations.

“I really enjoy doing the interviews, because I come to life and I get silly,” Patton, who has launched a coffee line with her mother called Havana Elsa, explains. “I’m a very silly person. I’m a lot like my mother. I like to clown around a lot.”

Going through two divorces may have been hard for Patton, but she did come out of them with a better idea of the kind of guy she’s looking for.

“I actually think I need to date someone that’s my age or in their 50s and just in a different place in their life,” Patton, whose first husband was two years younger than her while her second husband was 10 years her junior, says.

Heather Dubrow Talks The Real Housewives Of Orange County
With rumors that Season Eight of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” ShockYa has some scoop on the newest addition to show, actress Heather Dubrow, wife to famed plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow. Dubrow was able to talk with ShockYa about her time on the show, the opportunities she’s gained from being a part of the show (such as her guest starring spot on Hot in Cleveland earlier this month) and more.
This season of “Real Housewives of Orange County” is over for right now; how have you liked being on the show?
Well, it’s interesting…I had no idea what I was in for when I signed up for the show, so I have to say one of the producers said to me, ‘You’ll like 80 percent of it and you won’t like 20 percent of it,’ and that was pretty [true.]
What was the 20 percent you didn’t like?
Um, I think, you know, some comments I made about Alexis [Bellino] weren’t very kind. Like, hearing what people said about me–that wasn’t nice. That sort of stuff was hard to swallow.
Aside from the notoriety that comes from being on a reality show, what kind of positives did you get out of the experience?
I think that I try to work [from] the old adage that work begets work and exposure begets exposure. Obviously, I’m from a scripted television background. So for me, it’s been great to remind people that I’m out there and…I’ve gotten a lot of nice opportunities from it. I’ve done a lot of radio work and I’m doing a guest lead on Hot in Cleveland…”
I’ve read that you’ve had growing pains, so to speak, when you had to move away from the east coast to the west coast. Have you gotten used to life on the west coast, or do you still pine for the east?
Well, I think I’ll always consider myself a New Yorker, but I’ve been out here for over 20 years now. What was difficult for me was that it was a very difficult transition to move from New York to LA, but then I was for many years, and then moving from LA to Orange County was very difficult. I didn’t really know anyone, it was really suburban, so that was a hard transition. But now, I’ve made such a beautiful life here for me, my husband and the kids, that I can’t imagine this point in my life living anywhere else.
Fans got to know you and your husband very well on the show, but what is one thing that your fans don’t know about you that they wouldn’t expect?
I would say that–although my friends all know this about me–is that I’m very silly and funny. On the show, I think I come off very reserved and buttoned-up and controlling. And I’m controlling, that’s true–that’s definitely an aspect of my personality. I’m very organized–you know you have to be with this many children–but I’m very silly with my children and my husband and my friends consider me the entertainment at times. But I think that coming onto a show like this, I was so nervous about who these girls were and what they were going to say to me, what they were going to do, how was my husband going to act. I was so nervous about it for most of the season that I don’t think that part of my personality came through.
Do you expect to return for Season Eight?
Bravo hasn’t even announced a formal pick-up for next season, but I would say that if they move forward, I think we’ve had enough of a positive experience that I would probably be willing to do it again.

Adrienne Maloof & Lisa Vanderpump Have Very Icy Peace Summit Meeting
The tension in the air was thick as feuding castmates Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof attempt to sit down for dinner at the Mulholland Grill on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and we've got a preview clip of next week’s icy episode right here on

"I felt it was time to put our issues aside," Adrienne said of her on-again, off-again issues with Lisa, which have ranged from betrayal accusations to Lisa's open channels with Adrienne's estranged husband, Paul Nassif.

After a few cold pleasantries -- the ladies complimented one another on their looks -- they discussed the over-the-top floral arrangement Adrienne sent Lisa at one point.

"I sent a beautiful arrangement … I'm sorry it was so big," Adrienne said.

"You made a statement," Lisa said. "I thank you for the flowers, and I realize that was -- I hope it was a kind of peace offering -- and I needed that Adrienne."

One issue on tap was Adrienne's allegation Lisa had sold a story to … yes,

"At the time what I heard, it hurt my feelings," Lisa told Adrienne, who explained to her, "Sometimes friends react and they do stupid things -- that was stupid. I should have come to you first and talked about it."

Lisa said in an off-camera interview, "I don't mean to make her nervous … that much," before making it clear she wants to move forward in her friendship with the contrite Adrienne.

Joanna Krupa Calls Off Engagement To Fiance Romain Zago
Wedding bells are no longer in Joanna Krupa's future.

The Real Housewives of Miami star has called off her engagement to fiancé Romain Zago, E! News confirms.

"We got in a huge fight, and I just pretty much got fed up with it," the 33-year-old model and reality star tells In Touch. "He loves me to death, he wants to be with me, but there's something that's holding him from committing 100 percent."

Krupa and Zago were together for over five years but had not yet set a date to walk down the aisle.

The split isn't exactly a huge surprise for Real Housewives of Miami fans. The couple's rocky romance has been a major plotline throughout the show, with Krupa and Zago often getting into heated arguments.

So how does the now-single Krupa feel about returning for another season of Housewives?

"Despite all the drama, of course I would love to," Krupa told us exclusively this past weekend. "I signed up knowing that it's one of the biggest franchises and there's also a lot of drama. But if you get seven girls in a room, somebody's going to start up something."

"I don't have any regrets," she added. "You live and learn. Miami is just another platform in my career, and I appreciate it."

Jill Zarin Tricked By Fake Countess LuAnn Twitter Account
With all the Twitter fakes out there, it should come as no surprise that even a celebrity like Jill Zarin could get tricked into thinking that a fake Twitter account for her former Real Housewives of New York co-star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was real.

Jill, who was fired from the show after its fourth season but has hinted that she might consider coming back, was tagged in a tweet by @CountessLuAnnDL. The tweet read, “Me and @JillZarin shopping” and attached a photo that was obviously taken by a professional photographer. Jill responded, “Love!” and retweeted the tweet, seemingly unaware that it was a fake account.

The only problem? That isn’t the real Countess. (LuAnn’s actual Twitter handle is @CountessLuAnn.) This Twitter user is an imposter who tries to present themselves as the real Countess, and apparently they tricked poor Jill into thinking they were the real deal.

Jill isn’t the only celebrity that the faux Countess has been tweeting at. He or she will often tag the Countess’s fellow RHONY stars like Bethenny Frankel in her tweets and pretend that they are the real deal.

For someone who wants to be the Countess, that’s not very chic.

Kim Richards Living Well Off Alimony, 'Real Housewives' Check

Hey, if you're gonna stay on the Beverly Hills cast, you gotta keep up with the Joneses:
We know that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kim Richards got started in the working world at an early age as a child actor. But the show doesn’t delve into her current working situation much, so how does Kim make her money these days? Let’s take a look at her work history.

Kim’s most prominent role as an actor came at age 10 with 1975’s Escape to Witch Mountain, which presumably still provides royalty checks. She appeared in numerous TV shows in the ‘70s and ‘80s, including Diff’rent Strokes and The Dukes of Hazzard. Speaking of Diff’rent Strokes, we wouldn’t be surprised to someday hear Kyle ask, “What you talkin’ ‘bout, Kim?” 
Kim also appeared in a 1977 film called The Car, which is described on Wikipedia as being about a “mysterious car which goes on a murderous rampage.” And no, we’re not making that up.

Kim entered semi-retirement in 1990, acting only sparingly since then, including in the 2006 film Black Snake Moan. That movie co-starred Justin Timberlake, who can’t be the worst person to look at all day long on the set.

These days, Kim gets a fair amount of money thanks to an early ‘90s divorce settlement from ex-husband Gregg Davis, whose oil-tycoon father was the inspiration for the show Dynasty. According to an entry in House of Hilton, a book written by Kim’s sister Kathy Hilton, Kim receives $23,000 a month for the rest of her life or until she remarries. Not too shabby.

Plus, since joining the cast of Real Housewives, Kim makes an annual salary of $100K, according to Celebrity Net Worth. And she has been rumored to receive some type of “allowance” from Kyle Richards’ husband, Mauricio, although we’re guessing that has stopped, now that Kim has her Real Housewives salary.

All in all, Kim has a reported net worth of a million dollars.

Taylor Armstrong Slams Brandi Glanville: 'She's Slept With Every Man In Beverly Hills!'

Tipsy Taylor is actually kind of fun to watch this season and I'm glad that she's returning Brandi's fire with fire:
A very tipsy Taylor Armstrong is accusing her The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mate Brandi Glanville of sleeping with every man in Beverly Hills, and has video of her astounding attack.

With close to 16,000 adult men living in Beverly Hills, that's quite an accusation to make, even for Armstrong!

As the cast members -- minus Brandi -- get together and the drinks flow, Taylor literally lets rip at her "nemesis" Brandi.

Turning to jazz musician Chris Botti, who joined the ladies at a restaurant, an inebriated Taylor slurs: "We've got a good table...thank God my arch nemesis isn't here...or she'd be going down. She has slept with every man in Beverly Hills. She travels to find someone to sleep with...some sort of flight plan!"

As the rest of the room looks on uncomfortably, Taylor continues: "She has slept with every man in Beverly Hills. There's close to 16,000 men in Beverly Hills.

"And she's only been divorced a couple of years."

Tamra Barney Slams Star Magazine For Saying She Has “Cottage Cheeks”

This is too funny:
Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney is lashing out at Star magazine for their remarks about bikini photos of her and other Real Housewives.

Star magazine recently ran a two-page spread called “Real Housewives Bikini Blowout,” with snarky comments accompanying photos of several Housewives, including Tamra, Kim Zolciak, and NeNe Leakes.

Here is Star’s blurb about Tamra: “‘Housewives come younger, but they don’t come hotter,’ Tamra said after joining the Orange County crew. Confidence is definitely sexy — but a dimpled tush and thighs? Not so much.” Accompanying a photo of Tamra in a bikini is the title “Cottage Cheeks” with an arrow pointing to the reality star’s bum.

Tamra was the only one of the women to respond, and she took to Facebook to make her displeasure known. She writes:
“@star_news you are the reason woman feel horrible about themselves, low self esteem and have eating disorders. your recent article is juvenile and you make me sick! To take a three year old unflattering picture and post it in your current issue makes you look stupid (do your homework)! To make fun of the way a woman looks…… just makes you an assh0le!”

She then posted a more recent bikini pic of herself and fiance Eddie Judge, in which she looks lean and fit. Along with that pic, she included the non-too-subtle message in all caps, “F**K YOU STAR MAGAZINE!” So much for mincing words.

Kim Zolciak's Dad Calls Her A 'She's a Pathological Liar'
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak has a serious problem with the truth ... because she's a pathological liar ... this according to her own father. 

It's the latest shot in the nasty family feud between Kim and her parents ... that started when Kim's folks told a Georgia court that Kim was unfairly blocking them from visiting her children. 

Kim had fired back in court docs of her own ... claiming her mom and dad are bad grandparents and disrespectful people. 

But Kim's dad Joe Zolciak tells TMZ his daughter is full of crap -- "Kim is a pathological liar PERIOD." 

"I will not tolerate her trying to make a mockery of my wife or our family any further. We are completely humiliated by all the lies she has put in the media." 

In fact, Joe says Kim is an unstable parent and a bad role model -- "She has been married twice and has three different fathers of her four children. Let's face the facts." 

A judge has yet to decide on whether Kim's grandparents should have visitation rights.

Meet Porsha Williams Stewart, ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Newest Cast Member
Bravo seems to like to cast women on this show who have married athletes. DeShawn Snow. Lisa Wu Hartwell. Sheree Whitfield. Kim Zolciak. And now we have Porsha Williams Stewart, who is married to former NFL player Kordell Stewart (who joined 92.9/The Game last month).

She was cast mid-way through production and only appears for the first time this Sunday, season 5’s third episode.

Trailers show her clashing with the other newbie Kenya Moore, who is already causing waves with Cynthia Bailey.

Stewart is grand-daughter of the late great civil rights icon Hosea Williams. She runs a charity Key to Giving, that raises money for Hosea Feed the Hungry.

“He called me his little peach,” she said. “The best little peach of the world. He always talked to us about civil rights and stories about Martin Luther King Jr. And I marched with him in Forsyth County when I was younger.” (That was 25 years ago if you want to read more details about the march here.)

Would Hosea approve of her doing a reality show like “Real Housewives”? “He would trust my judgment,” she said. “I’m just like him. His motto was ‘Unbought and unbossed.’ I have all of that in me. I’m young and sweet but you can’t take me for granted.”

She’s a newlywed and she promises “we’ll get to see the ups and downs of a brand new marriage.” Her husband has a son from a previous relationship so that adds a level of complexity.

She wants to show herself as a woman steeped in Atlanta and focused on philanthropy.”‘I’ve always had a respectable family and a family that supported me,” she said. “I’m happy to show who I really am. I’m big on respect. If I feel disrespected, I will explain to you what you did. I speak my opinion. I’m outspoken. I am not the one talking about you behind your back. I will say it to your face. I can seem a little harsh but it comes from a good place. At the end of the day, you may love me or hate me or love to hate me.”

And she isn’t going to say a bad thing about “Real Housewives.” “I feel like the ladies on the show have done a good job. They’re independent women making it on their own. At the same time, women are the same whether they’re in Atlanta or LA or New York. Someone’s going to be catty. Not everyone’s going to like everybody. What I say with my friends on the show, it’s reality.”

Her quick takes on each of the other women:

Phaedra Parks: “She’s really sweet. She’s got a classy way about her.”

NeNe Leakes: “She’s just funny.”

Cynthia Bailey: “She’s becoming more outspoken.”

Kandi Burruss: “She is also born in Atlanta. She and I are down to earth. We have this experience that’s beautiful and fabulous. We’re country girls at the end of the day.”

Kenya Moore: “I haven’t had the opportunity to get to know her for who she is.”

Kim Zolciak: “She’s really a family girl. It’s all about family for her now.”

And why Kordell Stewart? “I fell in love with Kordell because he really wanted to know who I was. He was just very intense. He was passionate from the beginning. Those were qualities I felt were genuine. I knew I could trust him right off the bat.”

Brandi Glanville Claims Taylor Armstrong Was Drunk at Portia’s Party
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville says she knew as soon as Taylor Armstrong arrived at Portia’s party in this week’s episode that things were gonna get tense.

“When Taylor arrived seemingly drunk to a four year [old’s] birthday party, I had a good idea that s**t was gonna go down,” Brandi writes in her Bravo blog. “So after hearing some of the things she was starting to talk about, and also seeing her passive-aggressively ignore me as she spoke to both of people sitting on either side of me, I decided to get gone.”
Brandi’s main issue was that the adults’ drama should be kept away from a child’s party. “Don’t get me wrong because I can handle Taylor and drama any day of the week,” Brandi clarifies. “When kids are involved, us grown [ups] that sometimes act like children need to stick to acting grown-up. So I skidaddled [sic} as quickly and quietly as possible.”

Brandi also doesn’t know why Kyle Richards wasn’t more forceful in telling Adrienne Maloof to apologize to Lisa Vanderpump.

“When Kyle and Adrienne were shopping together, I was confused as to why Kyle didn’t just say to Adrienne's face what she said in her confessional about Lisa not owing Adrienne an apology,” Brandi writes. “I am not sure what Adrienne thinks she is owed an apology for in the first place.”

Joanna Krupa Contemplating Lawsuit Against Adriana De Moura Following Assault
A violent encounter between cast mates on The Real Housewives of Miami is spilling over into a real-life legal drama, has learned exclusively.

Joanna Krupa, who was punched by Adriana de Moura in a wild scene of the suddenly popular show, is now consulting with a top lawyer to find legal recourse against de Moura, a source close to the situation tells Radar.

"Joanna is not just going to take this," the source said. "She's reached out to one of Florida's most powerful attorneys to better understand her legal options after being punched in the face" on the show.

The beautiful star, who was also popular on Dancing with the Stars, has had to defend herself against others on the show, which has seen a surge in the ratings.

But the punch from de Moura, after a wild verbal argument, has moved beyond a ratings driver and is headed to a court room, the source claims.

"Not only did Adrianna punch her in the face, it took all of  Joanna’s strength to hold on to Adrianna as she was trying to break free and grab a broom that Krupa believes she was going to hit her with," the source told Radar.  "Joanna is very nervous about any other altercations with Adrianna and wants to know what her options are."

A lawsuit against de Moura is an option that is still in play, the source told Radar exclusively.

As Radar previously reported, tempers flared again on the show aired Sunday, with de Moura denying she hit Krupa, when confronted by the beauty.

"I never punched you in the face. Where are the bruises?" Adriana snapped. "Where are the bruises on your face?"

But Joanna says that's all nonsense, and she will protect herself physically and legally going forward.
"This isn't over," the source told Radar. "Not on the show and not off the set either."
Put aside the fact that I'm not a fan of Bravo casting two sleazy, former Playboy "models" as "Real Housewives", I'm on Adriana's side when it comes to that punch. It was Joanna who butted her big head in that conversation Adriana was having with Karent and instigated the whole matter in the first place. Then when Adriana proceeded to take the high road and walk away from her, Joanna follows her screaming and ranting at her down the hallway. Clearly provoked and probably feeling threatened, damn skippy Adriana had a right to turn around and slap that ass.

Aviva Drescher Talks “Biggest Disappointment” of RHONY Season 5
With Turkey Day just around the corner, Aviva Drescher has a lot to be thankful for this past year. Not only has her family been thriving but, after a quiet start, she quickly became one of the most interesting cast members to watch on Real Housewives of New York. Whether it was her intense fear of small planes, her Casanova father or her knock down, drag-out shouting matches with Ramona Singer, Aviva was often the focal point for some of the season’s biggest drama.

But that’s not to say she wouldn’t change certain things if she could go back in time. (Hey, wouldn’t we all?) Luckily, it looks like she’ll have the chance to do things differently next time around, since she’s rumored to be returning for season six. In the meantime, Aviva opened up exclusively to Wetpaint Entertainment about her biggest Season 5 regret.

Wetpaint Entertainment: What do you wish you could change about season five?

Aviva Drescher: Well, I want to make it clear that I’m not blaming anyone here because I’m partly responsible, but my greatest disappointment is that my prosthetic leg and my phobias were so front and center. In my real life, they are very much in the background of everything. I live life to the fullest. But on the show, I feel like they got exaggerated.

I was portrayed as if I spend my life dwelling on those things, which isn’t true. And it was especially disappointing because it undermines what I’m trying to do, which is to tell amputees  that it’s no big deal and you can still do anything you want.

Are there any other misconceptions that you want to clear up?

I think people got the idea that I never fly because I’m afraid. That’s not true – I travel by plane all the time. It was just the plane to St. Barts was very small and there was  a big nose-dive at the end of the flight.

If you return for the next season, what would you like to focus more on?

If I were do the show again, there’s a lot I would show, including all the business projects I’m involved in that lead back to charity work.

Will you be in New York for the holidays?

We might. We’re debating staying here in the city or going to Florida. But if we go to Florida, I’ll be flying there!

There have been rumors lately that the show may be casting new women…or inviting Jill Zarin back for Season 6. What are your thoughts on that?

I think Bravo knows what they’re doing. I have great confidence they’ll make the right decisions. I wish Jill only the best.

Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore Engage in Huge Fight on Next Episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta
The worst crime a Real Housewife can commit is to disrespect a fellow housewife, and that crime has been committed — and then some — in Atlanta!

In a sneak peek of the upcoming episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta obtained by, newcomers Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart go throat to throat with each other during a charity event, which Kenya dubs "whack", and they hold NOTHING back!

In the video, the two women are seen bickering on the street, and Kenya explains why she’s so mad at Porsha.

"This woman who I just met, who asked me to come to her event, gets on the mike and calls me Miss America," the former Miss USA says during a one-on-one camera segment.

Cue the live action cat fight!

"You are being disrespectful," Porsha tells Kenya, which sets the former beauty queen off!

"Disrespectful is inviting me to an event and not even knowing what my title is!" Kenya snaps back.

Instead of apologizing
, Porsha says the title was from ages ago – "From 19-whenever, I don’t remember that," she snipes, before ordering Kenya to leave the event.

No sweetheart," Kenya says. "You didn't kick me out, this is my back as I am leaving!"
