Joe Giudice Admits That He’s Freaked Out By Prospect Of Going To Prison
It sounds like Teresa and Joe Giudice knew about their legal issues long before they were indicted on 39-counts of fraud.

In previews for the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Joe Giudice reveals that he fears that their legal issues will land him in prison.

The Jersey crew is still in Arizona and they decide to take part in an exercise that involves a horse and his handler prying into the group’s most private secrets.

“He responds to one thing: authenticity,” the horse’s handler tells the group in one video.

He then addresses his attentions to Joe Giudice. “What have you been scared of?” he asks Teresa’s hubby.

“I think everybody has a little fear of something, you know what I mean?” Joe responds. “I just got lawyers involved and stuff like that.”

These comments totally stun the group.

“I am totally shocked that Joe would bring up those legal issues,” Joe’s brother-in-law Joe Gorga tells the cameras. “This is a big step for Joe Giudice.”

Joe maintains that he hasn’t been involved in criminal activity, but that he is still fearful of going to prison.

“It’s not like I’m a f***ing criminal like where I’ve been in f***ing prison a million f***ing times,” he says. “Never killed nobody, never f***ing did anything… you know to hurt anybody, so I don’t belong there and I don’t want to go there.”

Teresa sounds just as worried about the pending legal issues.

“If he’s scared of something, it makes me scared of something,” she says. “I can’t imagine my life without him.”

Aviva Drescher and Heather Thomson Whip Up Info on Miss USA Nana Meriwether
Bravo struck reality TV gold while filming the latest season of “The Real Housewives of New York City.”
Two weeks ago, producers arranged an awkward run-in between Aviva Drescher and 2012’s Miss USA, Nana Meriwether, at a luncheon hosted by “RHONY” co-star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps. At the event, Drescher was heard loudly announcing that Meriwether “hooked up” with Drescher’s 77-year-old father.

Drescher, first to arrive at the lunch at Gallow Green rooftop, spotted Meriwether walking in soon after — and believed the beauty queen was the woman she thought had joined in a threesome with Drescher’s oversexed septuagenarian father, George Teichner and his 25-year-old fiancée. (Note: We have no knowledge of what, if anything, went on behind closed doors.)

“Nana shows up and Aviva says, ‘How do I know that girl?’ ” one guest at the party tells Confidenti@l. “Aviva thinks she knows her and texts her ‘RHONY’ co-star Heather [Thomson] across the room and Heather screams and starts laughing.”

Thomson then beelined her way to Drescher and begged her to tell the absurd story, which was loud enough for other guests to hear in its entirety.

Ramona [Singer] was listening, too, and Bonnie Fuller,” the editor of, says our source. “Aviva said, ‘She may have had a three-way with my dad and his girlfriend not too long ago,’ and she was laughing.”

We’re told de Lesseps fumed over Drescher’s allegation and confronted her about bringing it up at the luncheon.

“LuAnn was appalled,” another source tells us. “The etiquette was not right for the luncheon. Everyone there was talking about it and LuAnn was very unhappy about Aviva’s behavior.”

When reached for comment, Meriwether told us she met Teichner at Jill Zarin’s house, but that nothing happened between her and him and that rumors are Bravo “fishing for story lines.”

Joanna Krupa Claims Her Husband 'Won't Have Sex With Me'
She may have once been voted sexiest swimsuit model in the world by Playboy and lusted after by millions of men, but The Real Housewives of Miami’s Joanna Krupa reveals in the new issue of Life & Style that there’s one guy who’s just not into her — her own husband!

In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, on stands now, the model opens up about her surprising intimacy issues with longtime love, Romain Zago.

“He can go forever without it. Then when we have a conversation, it turns into an argument,” she says. “He doesn’t feel anything is wrong — and I just want to be thrown down.”

Joanna admits lack of sex in their relationship has led her to worry. “Of course his lack of interest in sex had me question if he was cheating,” she tells Life & Style.

And though she did find flirty emails with another woman after snooping on Romain's computer, he insisted he never actually cheated — but Joanna knew she had to take control. The answer: Sex therapy.

“Since I met him, something was off,” she says. But after three months in treatment, she says, “I now feel that the issue of him not caring to have sex as much as I do has to come from his childhood.”

Though she knows it will take time, she tells Life & Style their romance is back on track by scheduling sex. “Sometimes it’s once a week, sometimes every other week, sometimes every three weeks,” she reveals.

“We made a commitment when we got married,” she notes. “I just want to feel the passion.”

Teresa Giudice Pleading With Fans To Donate To Her Defense Fund
Teresa Giuidce is facing a whopping 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion and has exclusively learned that the reality star’s finances are so dire that she has resorted to begging her fans to help pay her legal bills.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star will be making a personal appearance to ask her loyal followers to donate money to her legal defense at the Malibu Beach Resort on Thursday night.

“Her supporters and millions of fans around the world strongly believe Teresa will be vindicated soon and are seeking donations for the reality TV star, who has four young children,” a press release about the event reads.

“The group is dedicated to helping Teresa stay out of prison and also help pay any fines or other restitution that Teresa and Joe are ordered to pay.”

As has previously reported, Teresa and Juicy Joe pleaded not guilty to the federal charges, which include allegations of falsifying tax returns and W2 forms.

While the Bravo star has dismissed the charges that she is having financial difficulties, the event organizers expect to have “hundreds of fans collecting money” to help Teresa and Joe pay for their lengthy legal battle.

Teresa and Joe are facing 50 years behind bars if they are convicted of committing the crimes with which they are charged.

Perhaps due to backlash about the fundraiser, Teresa is denying the information in the press release, Tweeting: “Tonight’s appearance at Maliblue is just a meet & greet w/ fans. I just heard that some of the workers there wanted to support me, and that  is very sweet & I appreciate it, but if anyone wants to support me, please do it by donating to a charity I love: @NephCure. Xx”

Kenya Moore Possibly Engaged, Wears Giant Rock on Her Ring Finger
Rock alert! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is known for being unlucky in love, but a recent picture on Instagram has people buzzing with excitement. The "Gone With the Wind Fabulous" singer shared the photo over the weekend to show off her hair and makeup, but a giant diamond on her left hand pulled the focus big time.

Kenya posted to Instagram, writing, "Thanks to my glam team today Mimi and Robbie for giving me life."

Many of her followers assumed the picture was a subtle engagement announcement and expressed their congratulations. Still, Kenya has yet to confirm if she's indeed fiancé'd up, who she's dating, or if she's still dating anyone at all.

Earlier this week, Kenya was spotted with a handsome younger guy at LAX airport — could the mystery man be her future hubby?

Lydia McLaughlin Says Vicki Gunvalson’s Daughter Briana Stands By Her Man Way Too Much
The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Lydia McLaughlin calls out Vicki Gunvalson‘s daughter Briana in her new Bravo blog, and we’ve got all the details for you right here on

As we previously reported, Monday’s episode of the Bravo reality show saw the ladies convene for part three of the reunion, where all of the unpleasantries of the past season are rehashed, and old scabs are picked.

In an earlier episode where the cast and their families got together for a holiday party at Vicki’s, Lydia’s eccentric mother Judy Stirling faced the wrath of Briana’s husband Ryan Culberson after she had her feet up on their couch, as Ryan blew his stack at Judy and told her to “get the f**k out”of there.

“Ryan shouldn’t have yelled at my mother,” Lydia said. “End of story. He should apologize for his actions.”

Lydia said she was “upset with how Briana acted at the reunion,” avoiding direct discussion of the incident while placing the blame on the already-chastened Judy.

“She said she didn’t want to talk about ‘it,’ but then went on to insinuate that my mother was somehow responsible for ‘mud and red wine’ on the couch,” Lydia wrote. “Why wasn’t this mysterious glass of red wine ever mentioned before, and where is this magical mud patch my mom supposedly walked through before resting on the couch?”

Lydia said the thing that’s “upsetting to me is that there was no acknowledgement that he was out of line” from either husband or wife to her, or her mother.

“Even after watching the scene when it aired on TV … [they made excuses like,] ‘He was stressed out … he was drinking too much.’ The reason is irrelevant.”

The Dana Point, Calif. native, who’s radiated an optimism and kind nature not seen in many Bravo beauties, said, “there is absolutely no excuse for [Ryan's] behavior” at the affair. She said that she was proud of her mother — who was “VERY shaken” as result of the incident — for keeping her cool.

Alexia Echevarria Reveals Drug Trafficking Past About Ex-Husband
Alexia Echevarria revealed a pretty dark secret about her former husband on "The Real Housewives of Miami." The blonde beauty was married before to Peter Rosello, whom she had two children with, Peter and Frankie. Alexia is worried about Peter as he has gotten multiple tattoos and one is referencing his biological father, a rose that "unconsciously" is for Rosello, his last name. This cornered Echevarria to talk to her mother about why Peter is acting like this and revealed, "Peter and Frankie have two fathers, they had Herman and Peter Rosello. When Peter and I got married, I was young, I was naive ... he had like a 'bad boy' lifestyle ... I got pregnant. During that time my ex-husband was involved in a very serious drug trafficking case, where several of the defendants were murdered. He was sentenced to 25 years for drug trafficking."

Over on her Bravo Blog, Alexia further explains why it was so important for her to open up about her first husband. "It’s really difficult to have to talk about something that happened 23 years ago. Something that stirs so many mixed emotions -- happiness, sadness, fear, shame, guilt. Something that no matter how much I tried to hide it, erase it, and forget about it still haunts me today," the 'Housewives' star wrote. "At the same time, it's uncomfortable to have to speak about my ex-husband, the biological father of my children, after we have been legally divorced for over 17 years. As you all know, I've been happily married to Herman for the last 13 years. Peter and Frankie have always lived with me and Herman. Basically my boys have been blessed with having two fathers in their lives."

When Alexia's mother asks her if she feels guilty for giving them this type of parent she replies, "I do. He was in, about 4 or 4 and a half years and when he came home to the house, I got pregnant with Frankie and I made the same mistake again. It's like you wake up and snap out of it and you're like, 'OMG! Is this the life I want to live? Is this the life I want to give to my children?' I think Peter identifies a lot with his dad because Peter feels like he's the bad seed, but I am going to do my very best to make him realize that he is not a bad seed. That he's just a flower ready to bloom."

Teresa & Joe Giudice Clash with Cops Over Five Dollars
Five stinkin' dollars ... that's what started a massive argument this weekend between several police officers and "Real Housewives" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice -- all because the couple didn't want to pay a tiny beach entrance fee, sources tell TMZ.

Here's the back story -- the Giudices were kickin' it on Ship Bottom beach on Long Beach Island, NJ Saturday afternoon (with roughly 30 friends and family members) when they were approached by a teen girl beach worker.

Sources on the scene tell us, the employee asked to see the Giudices' "beach badges" -- basically $5 admission tickets required to chill in the sand -- and the family flipped, refusing to "pay to go to the beach."

We're told one family member even yelled at the girl, saying, "F*** you, f*** this we are not paying for the f***ing beach. This is a joke!" Remember: 5 dollars per person.

We're told the girl started crying, and when beach PD responded ... the Giudices continued to kick up a stink, but eventually coughed up chump change.

Of course, Teresa and Joe are facing massive money fraud charges, but still -- 2 TV stars oughta cough up 5 dollars without a fight.

Brooks Ayers Told Briana Culberson's Husband Ryan To Hit Her On 'The Real Housewives Of Orange County'
Some shocking allegations floored everyone at "The Real Housewives of Orange County" reunion during the third and final special. Even more surprising, the allegations about Vicki's on-and-off-again boyfriend, Brooks, came from Vicki's own daughter, Briana.

You told my husband to start hitting me and you’re not sorry for that? F*ck you!" Briana shouted at Brooks. "It’s on recording! It’s on a recording! I heard your voice. You told my husband, 'You need to start hitting Briana to get her to fall in line!'”

“Listen to me, I was drunk and angry and, yes, I’m sorry I said that," Brooks admitted. Then, Briana revealed that she was physically abused as a child, "And you tell my husband to start hitting me.” Briana was right about the recording, too. It does exist and has been posted in its entirety on Radar Online

After hearing this bombshell, the other ladies jumped on Brooks, too. Vicki tried to defend him at first, but it became too much. Brooks walked off the set, and Vicki broke down in tears, saying she hates her life.

[Vicki’s] simply not over [Brooks], and not willing to let go," wrote The Stir's Julie Ryan Evans. "Recent reports indicate they're still together too. So knowing that combined with everything we saw tonight, made it one of the most depressing reunions ever.” 

Writing for Wetpaint, Ryan Gajewski agreed, saying, "Wow ... this three-part reunion was more shocking than we could have imagined.”

Report Claims Teresa Giudice Stiffed Her Own Fertility Doctor $12,000
Teresa Giudice has been hit with a whopping 39 federal charges of tax evasion and fraud and is facing 50 years behind bars if she is found guilty but exclusively learned that she has a history of not paying off her debts simply because she didn’t like the service she received, even to the fertility clinic that she unsuccessfully used to get pregnant.

When she filed for bankruptcy in 2010 one of her outstanding debts was $12,000 to a fertility clinic and a source close to the reality star said that she had been trying to get pregnant for a fifth time.

“Teresa wanted a boy so she went to the fertility clinic and was hoping to get pregnant,” the source close to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star said.

“She had four girls and she wanted a boy. She wanted to give Joe a son so she tried fertility treatments, but it didn’t work, so then it seemed like she felt like she didn’t want to pay them.”

The source said Teresa and Joe simply didn’t pay the fertility clinic that they unsuccessfully used to help her get pregnant again.

“They have been ignoring their financial trouble for years, not paying even a doctor that tried to help them out, “ the source said.

Teresa and Joe have been accused of filing false income statements about their finances but they have pleaded not guilty and are prepared to go to trial in October.

Alexis Bellino Claims Lydia McLaughlin is a “Wishy-Washy Friend”
At the beginning of Season 8 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, we were set up to believe that Alexis Bellino and new castmate Lydia McLaughlin were the best of friends.
So, when Heather Dubrow met up with Lydia to discuss being featured in her magazine, we were shocked by Lydia’s comment when the conversation turned toward Alexis.

“We just moved into Dana Point, so our neighbor was your friend Alexis,” Lydia says.

When Heather visibly frowns and asks if they’re still friends, Lydia responds hesitantly. “We’re still friendly. She moved out of the area, so we still talk a little bit.”

It seems like we’re not the only ones who were surprised by Lydia’s reaction. In her Bravo blog following the Season 8 reunion, Alexis says she felt hurt after watching that episode.

“The problem I have is that I felt [Lydia] was my true friend from the beginning, and she doesn’t feel the same. Before Lydia was even on the show, we were hanging out together with our husbands, doing play dates, working out together... AND having long phone conversations about her coming onto the show. To me, we had an authentic friendship.”

Alexis reveals that watching the scene between Lydia and Heather was remarkably hurtful. “To hear [Lydia] say she didn't know me that well once Heather frowned about me, I was crushed. [...]  I felt Heather confirmed my feeling when she told her that she didn't feel Lydia acted as if we had hung out on several occasions.”

While Alexis says she doesn’t want a “wishy-washy friend,” she has tried to put the past behind her. “Lydia and I have discussed it, we have both shared our sides to it, and we have moved on. That's what friends do: discuss and move on.”

Kandi Burruss Would Like To Be A Judge On "American Idol"
Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta may have her own music-based competish spin-off, The Kandi Factory, but that doesn't mean the Bravolebrity isn't open to opportunities on other programs.

In a video interview with OK! Magazine, Kandi answered the question we've all been asking ourselves: Is there any hope for Kandi joining the panel of judges on American Idol? The news is good, people.

"The Kandi Factory is definitely more about helping people who want to become an artist, but if I had the opportunity to be on another music competition show, I definitely would," Kandi commented.

But there's a twist! Although she would be game for any of the three major music reality shows, she does seem to have a favorite and it's not Idol.

"If I could be on another competition show, it would be either one. I love all of them, American Idol, X Factor, and The Voice. I really love The Voice because they do not pick people based on the looks, it's just all about their talent," Kandi shared.

With the way judges have been rotating in and out on all three of these shows, we wouldn't be surprised to see Kandi's dream come true.

A Fed-Up Vicki Gunvalson Says She's 'Done' With Real Housewives Of Orange County
Next week’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion special could be the last episode for Vicki Gunvalson.

The reality star reportedly stormed off the set while filming the third part of the reunion special saying that she was “done with the show.”

Gunvalson said: “Guess what, Vicki’s done with the show!”

 We’ll have to wait until Monday to see if Vicki is actually leaving the show but it wouldn’t be too surprising. After all, Brooks Ayers did recently call her a “f*cking whore” and threatened to “beat her ass” because “that’s how we do it in the south.”

Vicki’s daughter Briana Wolfsmith-Culberson said that it was time for Gunvalson to leave Ayers since he is the “only source of ick” in her life.

Brianna said: “If you wanna be with someone that treats you like that … I can’t do anything about it anymore.” Of course, Gunvalson isn’t completely innocent here. The reality star says that Lauri Peterson has been “earning her pay on her back … sorry did I say that?” Do you think Vicki Gunvalson is really done with The Real Housewives Of Orange County Part three of the reunion special airs on Bravo at 8/7c on Monday night.

Taylor Armstrong (Allegedly) Engaged to John Bluher
A source exclusively tells E! News that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong is engaged.

Lawyer John Bluher proposed to the blond beauty Thursday at the Hotel St. Regis in Mexico.

Bluher popped the question inside of a beautiful ivory tent in the sand just steps from the ocean. Stunning flowers adorned the couple's private tent, as well as a small romantic fire.

Taylor looked positively radiant in a cobalt blue gown, while her soon-to-be husband dressed in a white dress shirt and matching pants for the special occasion.

The newly betrothed duo embraced and looked at the scenic view after Bluher put a ring on it. We're hearing that the wedding will be next year in the same location.

Taylor hinted at her romantic trip on Twitter, saying, "Hi Tweeties. Miss U. I'm on vacation in Mexico…Rest, Relaxation & Romance w @JohnBluher. Snorkel, surf, stand up paddle, swim & sun. #love"

The reality star opened up to E! News about her relationship with John earlier this year saying that she felt "at peace" in her new relationship.

"I am so much happier than I have ever been. I never thought I would feel this way," Taylor gushed. "John and I have an equal respect for one another. We have a real friendship and partnership."

She added, "He is a beautiful man. I didn't think I would ever be able to trust someone completely. But somehow, he opened my heart and I let him in."

The road to love has been a bumpy one for Taylor. In 2011, her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, was found dead in his Los Angeles home after hanging himself.

"I want people to see that I am in a solid place now. They have seen me through my pain and anger," she explained a year and a half after the tragic incident.

"I would love for them to get to see the real me and for the viewers to know my life has come full circle."

That it certainly has.

‘Malibu Country’ Star Sides With Heather Dubrow Over Gretchen Rossi Sitcom Controversy
Gretchen Rossi’s co-stars have called her a liar for her tall tale about booking an appearance on Malibu Country and one of the stars of the show weighed in and defended Heather Dubrow’s version of the situation.

The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies have been battling over Gretchen’s claims that she was asked to film a part on Reba McEntire’s sitcom, and there have been tears and name calling about the story.

Vicky Gunvalson called Gretchen a “liar face” after she said she was going to be on Malibu Country and used that as an excuse to get Alexis Bellino uninvited to Tamra Barney’s dress shopping trip and Heather went on Good Day LA to say that Gretchen was not offered the role, but she herself was and she appeared on an episode.

Sara Rue stars on the sitcom as Reba’s ditsy neighbor and she Tweeted about the situation, backing up Heather’s story.

“So my 2 cents is this: @HeatherDubrow had it all correct as far as I know… But small fun fact, I did base my character mostly on Gretchen,” Sara wrote, clearly trying to be funny but slamming Gretchen in the process!


Malibu Country was a topic again on the reunion show and Sara appears to have deleted her initial Tweet but sent a friendlier one to Andy Cohen, writing: “BravoAndy is there anyway you will do this much free press for the next show I’m on… Ya know, before its cancelled? #malibucountry #RHOC?”

If Sara is looking for a job maybe she should be on the next season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, she definitely knows how to stir up drama!

Teresa Giudice Puts Brand New Pool On Hold After Fraud Indictment
Embattled “Real Fraudwife” Teresa Giudice has pulled the plug on construction of a brand new pool — valued at $50,000 — at her Towaco, N.J. home in the wake of her fraud case.

Drowning in drama and with looming debt ahead, the 41-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey halted the redevelopment after her “financial house of cards came crashing down,” a pal revealed to

“Teresa had planned to put a pool in the yard of her house and she was going to spend $50,000 for it, but she couldn’t go forward with it given the case against her and her husband,” the insider said.

“She and Joe just doesn’t live in reality and so she thought that she could just build the pool.”

As we previously reported, the Bravo stars, in a 39-count indictment, are accused of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.
The pair has pled not guilty.

As for how the besieged couple planned to pay for the pool when they were already struggling financially, the pal guessed they might not have even paid — ever!

Quipped the source: “Teresa and Joe haven’t paid so many of their bills, maybe they weren’t planning to pay this one? Teresa  really still wants the pool, so maybe she’ll get it after all.”

Paul Nassif Drops Lawsuits Against Adrienne Maloof
Adrienne Maloof just won a solid victory against her ex-hubby Paul Nassif ... after he essentially folded in family court.

Sources tell TMZ ... Adrienne and Paul were fighting bitterly over where their 11-year-old son Gavin should attend school.  Adrienne wanted the boy, who has some learning and attention issues, to continue in regular school where he would get special attention.  Paul wanted to send Gavin to a school which specialized in kids with serious disabilities.

We've learned today in court ... Paul DROPPED his claim and Gavin will continue in the school he's in ... which is what Adrienne wanted.  Paul also dropped his request that she pay his attorney's fees.

And this is interesting ... we're told Paul also dropped his lawsuit against the former couple's chef, Bernie Guzman, who had plastered photos of a bruised Adrienne on his Facebook page, claiming Paul inflicted the injuries.  Paul sued Bernie for making the claims, but today dropped the case.

Kelly Bensimon Still Defends Her Actions During Infamous Bethenny Fight
“The Real Housewives of New York” star Kelly Bensimon may have been happy on the fourth season of the show because Bethenny Frankel was not on the show, but it sounds like she can simply laugh off the issues she had with her on the show. Someone had brought up the infamous bar scene, where Bensimon tells Frankel that they can never be friends and Bensimon has no problem talking about it. According to a new tweet released on Aug. 1, “The Real Housewives of New York” star Bensimon reveals that she isn’t too bothered by the drama that happened on the show and that she stands up for herself, even when being called Madonna.

Bensimon was the one who said she was above Frankel while filming the second season. “She called me Madonna and refused to film with me. It was childish, yet strategic. I was filming for fun. #lessonlearned,” Bensimon revealed in defense of herself. However, it sounds like she can only laugh at the drama now, since neither woman is on the show anymore. Frankel left to film her own spin-off, whereas Bensimon was fired after the fourth season.

“I love ths #rhony fans. Years later they are still obsessed with a scene. ps. #2scene in reality tv history. :),” Bensimon tweeted after getting tons of messages about her explanation of her behaviour. And it sounds like she knows that she made an impression while filming. “That scene struck a cord. no one likes to be put down, i will always stick up for myself. #integrity,” she added. It sounds like she is not regretting saying that she is better than Frankel.

Bensimon has returned to school and is still living in New York after wrapping up the show last season. She hasn’t expressed too much regret about the show, but it sounds like she can openly talk about her feud with Frankel, even though it wasn’t fun at the time.

Jacqueline Laurita Talks "Magic" and "Jersey Getting Real" in Arizona
Get ready for a life-changing episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey this weekend, people.

According to Jacqueline Laurita, it's going to be downright magical.

The Jersey mama took to her Twitter page to give fans a teaser.

"Magic starts happening at Miraval next week in AZ. This is when Jersey gets real!," Jacqueline claimed.

Later, she promised magic once again via her weekly BravoTV blog.

"Next week, Arizona! This is where we all start getting deep. Magic happens at the Miraval Spa. Stay tuned…," Jacqueline wrote.

We thought Lake George was pretty magical, but it looks like this second trip is going to be even more special. In the promo footage, we see Jac and ex-friend Teresa Giudice actually on the path to reconciliation.

If that’s not magic, we don’t know what is!

Adriana De Moura Talks Real-Life Drama Behind Secret Marriage
Adriana De Moura is ready to tell all about the real-life drama behind her secret marriage to fiancé Frederic Marq, whom she married earlier this summer in a made-for-TV wedding filmed for the hit show “The Real Housewives of Miami.”

“My son had a breakdown emotionally and was begging me not to get married,” De Moura told NBC Latino’s Nina Terrero of the reason she ultimately decided to call off a formal wedding with Marq. “Maybe 8 weeks into the relationship, Federic asked me to marry him. I was in that lustful stage and the sex was great, so I said yes …but when I started to feel conflicted, we started fighting and he finally pulled the plug.

We called it off but I still had the paper, the legal certificate.”

De Moura’s reluctance to get married was a recurring storyline on RHOM – but with the big reveal that she had been married to Marq since 2008, did she ever feel that she was cheating the audience of her so-called “real life”?

“I couldn’t really start telling everyone we had a paper when the point of not having the wedding party was to protect my son,” shared De Moura. “If I told everyone that I was legally married, than it would defeat the purpose of keeping it a secret.”

And now her son is happy to call Marq “dad,” says De Moura, whose son Alex is now 14 years old.

“Federic proved to be an excellent supporter of me and Alex,” shares the Brazilian ROHM castmate. “And Alex has had time to mature and accept him as a father. That’s been the most important thing to be.”

For de Moura, the chance to come clean about her five-year-long secret was also a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to one-up fellow Housewife Joanna Krupa. Krupa’s summer wedding to club owner Romain Zago was also filmed for the Bravo series but De Moura said her own romantic wedding was better.

“I felt my wedding was religious and emotional,” says De Moura, who admitted to being a bridezilla before walking down the aisle in front of friends, family and dozens of television cameras. “I like glamour, but I also like refinement so in that sense I think my wedding won.”

Both weddings will be shown on the third season of RHOM but de Moura revealed that the two extravagant affairs aren’t the only stand-out of what she calls the “best season ever.” There’s the aftermath of her explosive argument during last season’s reunion show with former best friend Lea Black (“we’re working on things,” De Moura reveals) and Housewives Karent Sierra is noticeably absent as well.

“I haven’t seen her much,” admits De Moura of Sierra, with whom she feuded last season. “Our paths don’t cross much.”

There’s also the added appeal of an added sparkle and sex appeal in the footage filmed for the show’s fifth season. Everything looks brighter, the shoes worn by the Housewives are even more expensive (if that’s even possible!) and sexy shots of luxurious Miami Beach abound.

“My life has progressed and I’m trying to bring the best of me as Adriana to the show – and at the same time, the show is looking richer and sexier,” says De Moura of the show’s upgraded production quality. “I’m really proud of the product we’re putting out.”

Fans Show Up In Masses For Teresa Giudice Book Signings Despite Legal Scandal
Teresa Giudice is still packing them in.

Despite her ongoing legal problems, the lynchpin of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is still selling books, and “seems to be fine” despite the fraud charges levied against her and her husband, Joe, according to her pal, Kim Depaola.

Depaola was at Teresa’s book signing held at her Wayne, New Jersey boutique Posche, and says that despite the accusations against the reality star, her fan base is intact, as “she sold out all of her books.

“Sold out and needed more, so she still has a lot of support,” Depaola said. “The line was crazy… a lot of fans. And that’s it on that question.”

Depaola said that both Teresa and her husband Joewho is also under legal fire as he was named in the indictment — kept in good spirits at a dinner after the event. (As we previously reported, the Bravo stars, in a 39-count indictment, are accused of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.)

Kim said that despite the rough patch, Teresa is keeping busy with the typical activities that have moms occupied in the dog days of summer.

“She’s with her daughters, she’s with her kids,” Kim said. “She was going down the shore. Next week, she will be home a lot because Gia has cheerleading and of course all the school stuff starts.”

Report Claims Sheree Whitfield’s House Chateau Is In Foreclosure
It's been years since Sheree Whitfield began building her home on the Real Housewives of Atlanta

Chateau Sheree became a topic of controversy, with NeNe Leakes even dubbing the estate "Neverland," since she predicted that it would never be built.

According to All About the Real Housewives, the property has gone into foreclosure before Sheree's future home was even fully built.

The website claimed, "A real estate agent source has revealed that Chateau Sheree is available for immediate short sale for $340k. Additionally, they divulged that there are two loans on the property and that the home will most likely be sold for something in the low to mid 300s."

Anyone looking to buy an empty lot with some sticks?

A Drunk Brooks Ayers Is Caught On Tape Calling Ex-Girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson 'A F*cking Whore'
The on-again, off-again boyfriend of Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has been caught on a secret audio recording calling her a “f*cking whore” and threatening to “beat her ass.”

In a series of tapes obtained exclusively by, a drunk Brooks Ayers can be heard justifying his threat of violence toward the Bravo star “because I can (and) that’s what we do in the South.”

He is heard slurring his words and using profane insults about the woman he’s dated since 2011, during an explosive exchange with a second man, believed to be Ryan Culberson, Gunvalson’s son-in-law.

At one point, Ayers, 46, even glorifies violence against women, telling Culberson he too should beat the opposite sex. When he’s rebuffed by Culberson, a Staff Sergeant in the Marines, Ayers tells him: “Well you probably should do.”

Today, is publishing two recordings of Ayers, which a source said were captured last year.

They were recorded because those close to Gunvalson, 51, were afraid Ayers may harm her, a source told

Radar has verified that the man caught on tape making the threats is indeed Ayers.

“B*tch, like she’s never done it before ever,” the father-of-two is heard at the beginning of the expletive-laced tape. It is unclear in what context he is calling Gunvalson a “b*tch.”

“You’ll be alright,” responds Culberson, who is married to Gunvalson’s daughter Briana.

“F*cking whore, imma [sic] f*cking beat her ass when i see her,” Ayers charges. “It’ll be like a week when I see her, sh*t.”

“That ain’t right,” Culberson tells him.

This is how the rest of the exchange went down.

BA: It ain’t?
RC: No.
BA: What ain’t right?
RC: You can’t beat her up.
BA: I’m going to be beat her ass.
RC: Why?
BA: Because I can. That’s what we do in the South.
RC: No. I don’t do that.
BA: You don’t beat their ass?
RC: No.
BA: Well you probably should do.
RC: No.
BA: Oh god. This is us.
RC: Yeah upstairs.
BA: You be careful.
RC: You be careful. I am good.

That tape ends with Culberson asking an inebriated Ayers, “Are you alright?”
