Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof (Allegedly) Returning To "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" producers have lured back 2 big stars ... one of whom they fired.

Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof are the secret to restoring the show to its former ratings glory ... at least that's what producers are banking on -- sources connected with the show tell TMZ.

Pretty ironic ... Camille was fired after her divorce from Kelsey.   Her problem ... she went from crazy to boring after her divorce.

Adrienne was a hell-freezes-over type girl, because we're told producers said they would NEVER work with her again after she quit the show.

But times and ratings change.  Now that the show has 86'd Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud crashed and burned, there was a gigantic hole in the cast ... now filled.

We're told Camille and Adrienne won't be on all the time ... they'll be on here and there.  They've already shot scenes -- most recently at Kyle Richards' infamous white party.

Adrienne went through a nuclear divorce with Paul Nassif but we're told neither he nor their kids will be story lines.

Melissa Gorga Says New Husbands on 'RHONJ' Season 6 Will Take Center Stage and Divide Viewers
It looks as if the husbands of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" have some competition. In an interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, posted on Thursday, June 26, returning housewife Melissa Gorga said that the new husbands of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" will have everyone talking.

Besides Melissa, season six of the show, which premieres on Sunday, July 13, will feature Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo, Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea, and Nicole Napolitano. Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri will also be seen on a part-time basis. Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita, who have starred on the show since the very first season, will instead be seen on Caroline's spin-off "Manzo'd With Children."

According to Melissa, the new husbands, instead of just tagging along to events and staying in the background, will be taking center stage. She said that viewers will love some of the new guys but hate the others. Teresa A. is married to Rino, whom she actually divorced and re-married 11 years later. Amber is married to James, with whom she raises four kids. Teresa A.'s twin, Nicole, is currently divorced so it seems as if viewers will be seeing some of the guys that she dates or perhaps her ex-husband.

If the new guys have such strong personalities, you can only imagine what the new girls will be like. Melissa said that the addition of Teresa A., Nicole and Amber provides a "fresh and different" feel to the upcoming season since they're so full of energy and were ready to go right from the beginning. However, with their energy comes a lot of drama. Melissa admitted that the season with the new housewives is "a bumpy road," with a lot of unexpected occurrences. 

A sneak peek video for the upcoming season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" certainly shows that it's the new housewives, Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, who will be at the center of much of the major drama. In contrast, Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo seem to be more calm and level-headed.

Kim Richards Spotted With New Boyfriend, Begins Filming New Season Of ‘RHOBH’
Her fate on the show was shaky, but it seems that Kim Richards is coming back to Beverly Hills.

As reported, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers previously considered placing the reality star, 49, on the chopping block because her storyline was “boring,” sources said.

But the former actress— who famously struggled with her sobriety in the series’ early seasons— is joining costars Yolanda Foster, Lisa Vanderpump and sister Kyle Richards on the Bravo hit’s fifth season.

With an entourage of cameramen in tow, Richards filmed scenes with daughters Brooke, 28, and Kimberly, 19, in West Hollywood, California on June 24— and it looks like she’s amping up the drama.

“She was fighting with her daughter Brooke during filming,” an onlooker tells Radar. “Brooke seemed really angry.”

Phaedra Parks Ordered to Sit for Deposition Over Accusations That She Ran a Criminal Enterprise
*Phaedra Parks will no longer get to avoid a legal matter over accusations that she ran a criminal enterprise.

According to Radar Online, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star has been slapped with a court order stipulating that she sit for a deposition in her ongoing defamation lawsuit within 45 days, or face the wrath of a judge.

Parks sued former friend Angela Stanton in 2012 over claims Stanton made in her e-book, Lies of a Real Housewife. Stanton alleged Parks oversaw a “criminal enterprise” that included auto title fraud and more.

Two years later, Stanton’s attorneys are still trying to get Parks to sit for a deposition and divulge just what she knows. According to court records, they “began asking for available dates to take Parks’ deposition” back on November 15, 2013. From that date forward, they tried to “work with Parks, by and through her counsel, on numerous occasions to schedule her deposition, but [have] met with nothing but excuses, refusals and empty promises…”

All told, the attorneys claimed Parks has shown a “refusal to participate in good faith in the discovery process.”

Now, Radar has learned, a judge agreed that Parks’ deposition is a “necessary step” in the case, issuing an order on June 19 for Parks to set a date for a deposition by July 4, and to sit for the deposition by August 3.
Stanton claimed in her book that “there was criminal activity involved in our relationship” as she and Parks became business associates in a scheme involving “fraudulent bank accounts, insurance checks, fake IDs, chop shops, stolen cars, fraudulent titles and fraudulent registration cards.”

Parks has never been charged, questioned, or named in connection with such schemes by the authorities, and insists all of Stanton’s claims are the libelous rantings of a bitter woman.

NeNe Leakes To Begin Guest Run For ‘Zumanity’ In Las Vegas
Reality TV star NeNe Leakes (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”) is bringing the drama of her often-controversial TV appearances to a run of 10 “Zumanity” shows.

It’s part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of the show, and Cirque du Soleil officials have told me that if successful, it will herald other guest stars and new cast and routine changes into its second decade.

NeNe, who appeared as a stripper in the 2003 Cuba Gooding and Beyonce film “The Fighting Temptations,” starts her guest-hosting role Friday night, but this evening I’ll chat with NeNe after I watch her rehearsals as the erotic Edie, Mistress of Sensuality, in Cirque’s sexy, adult-centric show at New York-New York.

She’s already made it clear that while the show is provocative and risque and several performers go topless, she won’t be getting naked. However, fans will see plenty of skin.

“We’ll be as sexy as we can be,” 46-year-old NeNe told our colleague Susan Stapleton at Las Vegas Magazine. NeNe worked as a stripper when she met husband Gregg Leakes, whom she married in 1997.
Dancing won’t be too difficult for the “Glee” star (coach Roz Washington) when she takes over as “Zumanity” mistress Edie, as NeNe competed in Season 18 of “Dancing With the Stars” and finished seventh with pro partner Tony Dovolani.

I met NeNe during her run on Season 11 of Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” when she made a promotional appearance with “Apprentice” co-star DJ Lil Jon at Steve Wynn’s Encore. Also on that season: Meat Loaf, Gary Busey and Star Jones. NeNe quit the show before the Donald yelled his signature “you’re fired” line.

You all must remember the epic catfight to end all reality TV catfights between NeNe and Star on “Apprentice.”

NeNe says that while in Las Vegas, she expects to do a lot of shopping and dining at Strip restaurants. On Sunday night, NeNe was spotted at Tao in the Venetian with Gregg celebrating their anniversary. Dressed to the nines, the couple toasted with cocktails while enjoying appetizers and sushi. Guests nearby noticed the reality TV star and stopped by her table to say hello.

We’ll have her full interview Tuesday, but she has already commented: “I’m really looking forward to ‘Zumanity.’ It’s a great show, and I love performing before live audiences. This is going to be rewarding for all of us.”

Bethenny Frankel Denies Rumors That She's Joining "The View"

Hey, if she does get an offer, why not take it? Sure she'd have to share the stage with at least 3 or 4 other women (including Whoopi Goldberg), but The View would fit her desired trade, it's an iconic show, the studio's based where she lives and the Bethenny who speaks her mind on any and everything would seemingly be a perfect fit. Just saying:
Bethenny Frankel has big plans for the future, but based on her latest Twitter update, these do not include serving as one of the co-hosts on The View. The former Real Housewives Of New York City star recently denied this and several other rumors in a very sarcastic social media rant.

A recent round of Facebook rumors suggested that Bethenny Frankel was set to take over for Barbara Walters on The View. Although a rep for the show claimed that there was no true replacement for the iconic former co-host, the implication was that a younger host would be arriving in the near future in order to spice up the show. But based on a recent tweet from Bethenny Frankel, that new co-host will probably not be a Real Housewives star.

Obviously annoyed by the constant rumors, Bethenny took to Twitter to share her frustration in a clearly sarcastic manner. She tweeted, “I forgot to tell you I’m the new host of @theviewtv AND I will be gracing the cover of @voguemagazine in @tjmaxx designs.” Just in case any fans managed to miss the intent of her message, the reality star added the following essential hashtag: “#mostgossipisbs.” She later returned to quip, “I don’t like to brag but Clooney broke off his engagement because I’m having his baby.”

So, if she’s not a co-host for The View, what will Bethenny be doing now that her talk show is officially over? The reality star says she has big plans, although she hasn’t bothered to explain what, exactly, they are. Fans assume she’ll continue to promote her Skinnygirl line, and, perhaps, pursue other hosting or reality television opportunities.

Yolanda Foster and Kyle Richards Confirm Their Return To ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’
Despite rumors that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers were planning to replace several of the show’s stars, Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster reveal to In Touch that they'll be returning!

“Yes, [we’ll] be back,” Kyle confirms, but refuses to dish on the rest of the gang. (Newbies Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia have reportedly both been axed.) In fact, “I’m ready to go back,” she adds.

“We began filming [the new season] a few days ago,” Yolanda explains to the mag, adding that while there has yet to be any hair pulling, she’s sure chaos and drama will ensue. “It’ll be great. Things always start off slow in the beginning.”

Entire Cast Of ‘Real Housewives of New York’ To Get The Axe . . . Except For Ramona Singer

I say get rid of Kristen Taekman's super-annoying, whiny ass, make LuAnn a fulltime member again, keep everyone else and yes, dare I say a call to Jill Zarin and see if she's willing to come back. Hey, with Jill's ego, the opportunity to comeback and "save" RHONY alone could be worth more than the paycheck:
Housewives of New York … you’re fired! As the current season of the Real Housewives of New York continues to tank in the ratings, has exclusively learned that Bravo bosses have decided to axe the entire cast — except for Ramona Singer. In fact, sources tell Radar, auditions for new ladies are already underway!

“Bravo doesn’t want to cancel the series because New York is the unofficial capital of the United States,” an insider told Radar. “The amount of wealth concentrated into such a small area makes it a major draw.”

But the series sinking ratings are simply unacceptable, and so, “The entire current cast, including Sonja Morgan, Heather Thomas, Luann de Lesseps, and Carole Radzwill are all expected to get pinks slips,” the source said.

At this point, “Ramona will most likely be offered a contract to come back,” according to the source, “and Aviva Drescher could be offered a much smaller role, of series guest star.”

As for the new cast members, the insider explained, “Expect them to be over-the-top wealthy and very charismatic with multiple estates.” 

Though the current series’ stars have plenty of drama in their personal lives — cheating scandals, bankruptcies, and boy toys – much of the major excitement has happened off-screen. As a result, viewers have been tuning out in increasing numbers since the first episode, which brought in a measly 1.33 million viewers — the lowest number since the show debuted.

Indeed, the episode that aired on June 17, garnered fewer than one million viewers for the first time since the series premiered in 2008, according to

“The ladies just aren’t connecting with viewers and they need something major to happen to them,” a source previously told Radar.

Child Psychologist Treating Tamra Barney’s Daughter Calls Her 'A Great Mother!’
Three months after Tamra Barney Judge’s ex filed explosive court documents accusing her of child neglect, the psychologist for their teen daughter, Sidney, has come forward to tell the court that the Real Housewives of Orange County star is “a great mother,” and that her ex Simon Barney “misrepresented” the reality of the situation. Now, only has the stunning details of the declaration that’s blowing apart the couple’s bitter custody war

Renee Hulse, the therapist for Sidney, 16, said in a declaration that she has met with Sidney and both parents “on numerous occasions.” 

“Based on my numerous meetings with both parties and the children, I have no problem advocating that Tamra is a great mother of her three children,” Sidney, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8, Hulse said. “She cares deeply for all three children and has never done anything intentional or purposeful to hurt her children.” 

“She tries hard to fill their needs and cares about their feelings and wants to support them in any way she can,” Hulse continued. “Tamra is conscientious to instill responsibility in the kids as well as teaching them the value of work and respect towards others. She provides a loving home for them and supports her children to connect with their father, Simon, often.”

Despite Barney’s claims, the therapist insisted, “I have never heard anything … that would indicate that she has ever done anything out of the ordinary, that [she] would hurt, abuse or neglect her children in any way.”

In fact, although Barney presented a letter from Hulse dated January 5, 2014 claiming that Judge was the cause of Sidney’s “anxiety,” Hulse said the letter was never suggested any such thing.

She insisted, “The purpose of this letter was not to advocate for one parent or the other but to simply convey the current state of affairs []pertaining to my therapy with Sidney specifically. This letter was actually a positive letter …” 

Barney’s insistence that Sidney suffers from anxiety “is a lie,” Hulse claimed. “Nowhere within [the letter[ is the word anxiety or physical pain even referenced. My letter has been taken out of context and it is being misrepresented by Simon.”

Barney has since said he wants Sidney to stop seeing Hulse, and now Judge is asking the court to make it mandatory.

In a memorandum, her lawyers argued, “The therapy has generated positive results as it pertains to the relationship between Sidney…and her mother. To maintain these positive results, [Tamra] is requesting the court order both parties to cooperate and continue this therapy with Ms. Hulse. [Simon] has refused to allow this therapy to continue, so an order is needed.”

“The substantial danger the lack of therapy poses is that [Tamra] and Sidney’s relationship will not improve without conned therapy,” the documents read. “The therapy has proven successful thus far, however, her father is not allowing it to continue. It is in the best interest for Sidney to have continuing and frequent contact with both parents..”

Judge even offered to continue paying for it herself.

Meanwhile, the couple faced off in court today but agreed to a continuation until September 10.

Dina Manzo Says She'll Never Do a Reality Show With Family Again
Dina Manzo is back—but not with a vengeance. After leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2010 amid lots of family drama, the Bravo star is ready for a fresh start in season six. It worked out that estranged sister Caroline Manzo and estranged sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita are no longer on the show, but Dina insists that she had nothing to do with Jacqueline's exit.

"I didn't get anyone fired," the reality star, 43, shares exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. "One of my first questions for the producers when I was invited back was, 'You're not getting rid of anyone because of me, right?' And they said, 'Absolutely not.'"
Things have been chilly between Dina and her family for years. As RHONJ viewers know, her rift with Caroline, Jacqueline, and brother Chris Laurita became a major story line when Caroline blamed costar Teresa Giudice for the falling out. (Both Teresa and Dina have denied that she's at fault.)

"Other than my daughter [Lexi, 18]—we share a bond that nothing can break—I will never do a reality show with family ever again," Dina, who's separated from husband Tommy Manzo, tells Us. "It's just not a healthy environment."

LuAnn de Lesseps Claims Sonja Morgan Is Not A True Friend
On a trip to Montana, the wives tried their manicured hands at a lot of outdoor activities, including fly-fishing, but largely came up empty-handed.

"I had a vision of fish flying out of the water," said Kristen Taekman, while Ramona Singer worried more about the fishy fashion. "The worst part of fly-fishing is the outfit … I look like Humpty Dumpty."

But at least Humpty Dumpty and BFF Sonja Morgan caught a fish – with the help of their guide – while Heather Thomson let one slip off her hook, before falling into the water.

The barbs didn't really stick until dinner that night, when LuAnn de Lesseps asked Morgan why she hadn't defended her after Morgan's esthetician spilled sexy gossip about the countess.

"Sonja seems to have a stick up her ass," said de Lesseps. "Make that the whole tree."

"Are you upset with the facialist, or what people are saying?" asked Morgan. 

"I don't even want to listen to this anymore," yelled de Lesseps. "You don't defend me, your friend?"

"The community's saying it about you," Morgan retorted.

"Don't talk s–––!" De Lesseps screamed. "You are not a friend!"

"You lie down with pigs, you're a pig," said Morgan, which prompted de Lesseps to depart dinner, yelling, "I'm done!"

"I treated her like family," said the countess. "The fact she treats me like I’m a disposable friend hurts."

Teresa Giudice Thanks Fans For Prayers
Teresa Giudice is sharing her memories and gratitude with fans after her father-in-law's recent untimely death Wednesday.

Teresa's husband Joe's father, Frank Giudice, collapsed at their home which led to his untimely death recently. Teresa, the 43-year-old "Real Housewives of New Jersey" personality, took to Twitter to share their memories with the late patriarch while thanking fans.

"Thank you all for your prayers...xx," Giudice tweeted.

She went on to share images from the communion of one of her four daughters and an image from father's day.

"We Love you Dad Forever in our hearts," Teresa tweeted on the social networking website.

Teresa and Joe's 13-year-old daughter Gia took to Twitter to share her own heartfelt message for her grandfather.

"Strongest man I know.. I love you nonno. Rest in peace… 6/18/14,″ she tweeted.

Joe and their daughters were reportedly at their home when his father collapsed suddenly Wednesday.

"Teresa arrived shortly after it happened. He had just collapsed in the yard," a source reportedly told Radar Online. "They called 9-1-1 but there was basically nothing anyone could do when they got there. This was totally out of the blue."

Wendy Feldman, Teresa's representative, tweeted about the sad ordeal while calling for prayers for the family.

"Sadly it is true that father of my client and friend Joe Giudice passed away today @Teresa_Giudice asks for privacy and prayers," Feldman tweeted.

Gretchen Rossi Not Pleased With "Marriage Boot Camp" Editing: "I'm Pissed!"
Some people never learn! Gretchen Rossi (formerly of The Real Housewives of Orange County) and fiancé Slade Smiley joined the cast of WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp this season, and were shocked — shocked! — at the edit they were given.

On last Friday’s episode, the couples did a truly bizarre exercise where one of them (Gretchen, in this case) had to play dead in a morgue while the other (Slade) had to talk to the “corpse” one last time. Creepy, right? Apparently, Gretchen wasn’t happy with the way her and Slade’s bit was cut, and took to Twitter to complain.

“Ok now I’m pissed!” Gretchen tweeted (via AllAboutTRH). “Just watched the morgue scene and that was a total voice over of Elizabeth saying ‘that’s it, your [sic] not going to touch her one last time’ that was never said in that moment and they did not show half of what Slade said to me and how he embraced me afterwards. I’m calling #bs with that editing on #MarriageBootCamp #notcool exactly why we were hesitant to do the hot button exercise right before that.”

Lisa Vanderpump Announces That She Will Return for Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Have no fear, Real Housewives fans, Lisa Vanderpump (and Giggy!) will be back.

Despite rampant speculation that she would not return after a rough season and some frustrating legal troubles, Lisa recently took to her Twitter account to announce that she will be returning for season five of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when it premieres this fall.

"Well ok...Five has always been my lucky number,so we will see," she tweeted. "#rhobh Let the games begin."

Vanderpump also has her own spinoff, Vanderpump Rules, focusing on her West Hollywood restaurant Sur, that was recently picked up for a third season.

Last season, particularly at the reunion show, Lisa found herself at odds with Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville and the rest of the ladies of Beverly Hills, who accused her of spreading rumors and making backhanded comments. Vanderpump expressed some disinterest in returning to the show.

In January, a waitress at Vanderpump's restaurant, Villa Blanca, filed harassment charges against Villa Blanca and one of its managers. Just recently, the waitress was awarded $100,000 in damages, and Vanderpump expressed her disappointment through Twitter.

As for the rest of the women, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster have all signed on for a fifth season, but Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia were fired after one season, and will not be returning. 

The fifth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to air sometime this fall.

Kandi Burruss Says Bethenny Frankel’s Messy Divorce Provoked Her Must-Have Prenup With Todd Tucker
Kandi Burruss revealed the reason behind her demand for a prenuptial agreement, that had her fiancée Todd Tucker seeing red on Sunday night’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding.

Appearing on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live Sunday, Burruss said she didn’t mean to appear cruel, but wanted to avoid the prenup pratfalls of the former The Real Housewives of New York City star in her messy divorce with Jason Hoppy.

As we previously reported, on Sunday’s edition of the music-maker’s spinoff Kandi’s Wedding, Tucker stormed off on the eve of their wedding after finding out that in the prenup, among other things, Burruss would require him to move out of her house within 30 days if they decided to divorce.

As readers know, Frankel and Hoppy lived in the same New York apartment during their split and bitter custody battle over their daughter.

“When you get divorced sometimes that can be a long dragged out process,” Burruss told Cohen. “I remember talking to Bethenny recently and she was saying how she hated the fact [that] she had a prenup but they didn’t have any term where he had to get out, so they were still in the same house for a long time.”

Cohen interjected about Frankel’s ex-husband, Hoppy, “He might still be there, as a matter of fact.”

Burruss added, “That’s why attorneys try to put those stipulations in there.”

She said she also wanted fans to know that Tucker is a stand-up guy: “I bought the house. But he doesn’t want the house.”

Carole Radziwill Says Sonja Morgan’s Type Is Anyone ‘With A Penis’
On this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Kristen Taekman plans a “glamorous” vacation for the ladies. But instead of sipping cocktails (and starting drama!) in the Hamptons, the housewives are spending five days in the horse-riding, cowboy hat-sporting city of Missoula, Montana.

“I think I’d be great for all of us ladies to take ourselves out of our comfort zones and go to a really great place,” Kristen said. “So instead of going to the Hamptons for Labor Day weekend, I persuaded the girls to go to an upscale ranch in Montana.”

And how are the ladies responding to the spa-free vacation? 

“There is nothing to do! I mean there is going to be no Pinot Grigio … no dancing, it’s going to be boring at night! Boring!” Ramona Singer complained to Aviva Drescher during a dip in the pool. 

Fortunately for Avivia, the high altitude and horses were just too much for her asthma to handle, forcing her to miss the trip.

Never knew Avivia had asthma? Neither did the ladies. 

“She’s never had it before and all of a sudden I invite her to Montana and she’s allergic to horses?” Kristen told Ramona as they shopped for cowboy gear and sexy chaps. 

To prove that she really did have asthma, Aviva showed Kristen a doctor’s note. Kristen questioned the note – believing that it’s too much of a coincidence – and claims that a friend wrote it for her.

“I can’t f*cking breath ladies, accept it!” Aviva screamed before opening her bag and throwing pill bottles at Kristen. Aviva even pulled out an inhaler and begins to use it. 

“Aviva literally opened up her bag of crazy, and then she threw it at Kristen. Even I was shocked,” Ramona told the camera. 

Although Aviva was “forced” to sit this one out, she made sure the ladies didn’t forget about her. When they landed at the airport in Missoula, the wheelchair Aviva ordered before she cancelled welcomed them.  

“It’s bad enough that Aviva backed out on the trip, but she still manages to be dramatic even when she’s not here,” said Heather Thomson. “Why the hell would she need a wheel chair?”

After landing, the ladies discovered that the five-star ranch Kristen promised was far from their normal vacation standards.

“I just got off of a six hour flight. The last thing I want to see are dead animals stuffed in my face,” said Ramona.

When they arrived to the ranch, both LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona sighed, “This is it?”
After downing Huckleberry juice, the women embarked on their first adventure: Cattle driving.

Surprisingly, the ladies actually adapted to their surroundings and rode the horses without a glitch; even Sonja Morgan overcame her fears after falling off the saddle years ago. 

During dinner, the Park Avenue princesses were displeased to discover that they were eating in a barn – right next to horses! 

“Where’s the food? We’re not having dinner in a barn where there’s horses and cattle and manure,” Ramona said.

In last week’s episode, Sonja’s facialist gossiped about Carole Radziwill and LuAnn. The facialist claims Sonja had a fling with Carole’s boyfriend in L.A. In the beginning of the episode, Carole informs viewers that she confronted Russ about the affair and he denied it.

“There’s not one cell in my body that is thinking that this story is true. Sonja is definitely not Russ’ type, but Russ is definitely Sonja’s type — he does have a penis,” Carole told the camera.

Terry Dubrow Says Everything With Wife Heather Is 'Pretty Serious'; To Star In New Show "Botched" With Adrienne Maloof's Ex Paul Nassif
Don’t add Heather Dubrow and Terry Dubrow to the list of failed Housewives marriages just yet. Though the couple have been having some marriage issues, as Radar has reported, plastic surgeon Terry has spoken out to insist that the Real Housewives of Orange County couple are doing fine, despite their differences.

“My wife and I have a very tight relationship,” he told Wetpaint in a new interview. “The main issues we have is that I joke around a lot. You can’t take things to serious with me. Although she’s funny, everything’s pretty serious with her.” 

“I don’t want to know what I’m doing next Tuesday, but she can tell you what she’s doing eight months from now,” he said. “I don’t want to plan. I just want to live.”

As Radar reported, Terry’s laid-back outlook on life has been clashing with Heather’s, to the point that sources claimed he was threatening to leave her and go on tour with his dead brother’s band, Quiet Riot, during the summer. 

Both members of the couple denied it, and his friend, Adrienne Maloof’s ex, Paul Nassif, chimed in, “That’s a joke. That’s a huge joke. Those two have a fantastic relationship together and they like to tease each other — especially Terry.”

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker Argue Over Prenup: “I Don’t Want Your F—ing Money!”
We knew that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s prenup was a sticking point for Mama Joyce, but we didn’t know the couple themselves were so preoccupied with it all. Todd’s been dragging his feet a bit all season, but the two really get into it on this Sunday’s June 22 episode and it’s a fight like we’ve never seen between the normally lovely couple!

In the sneak peek from Bravo, we see Todd confront Kandi about his issues with the actual wording of the prenup. Though he initially blames his lawyer, saying he found issues in the wording, his former Xscape singer fiance isn’t having it.

“You’ve got what you’ve got, and I’ve got what I’ve got? It’s cut and dry,” Kandi insists.

“There’s other things in there,” Todd fires back. Like what exactly? Well, Todd’s not pleased with the concept that, should the worst happen, he’s got to get out of the house in 30 days. He wants time to find a place! But Kandi’s not buying it.

“Todd can say whatever he wants about it not being about the money, and that’s why he doesn’t like the prenup. But meanwhile, his attorney is sending notes and all those notes are about money,” Kandi vents to the Bravo cameras.

The Housewife then points out they already had a conversation about “how they think things should flow,” but now, Todd is suddenly going rogue and blaming “his lawyer.”

“So you think you should get some of my money?” Kandi says, visibly pissed, and you better believe that sets Todd off. “I don’t want your f—ing money, man! Damn. That’s all y’all think about is money — you, your mama, all y’all.”

From there, Todd storms out and tells Carmon, “I don’t think there’s gonna be no wedding.” Yikes! While we know the wedding did indeed happen, we’re still unsure how they were able to overcome such a major dispute.

Brandi Glanville Calls 7-Year-Old Son ‘A Complete A**hole,’ A ‘D*ck,’ & A ‘F*cker’, Says She’s Already Planning His Rehab Stint

One can only hope that his father Eddie has already gotten wind of this vile creature's rant om her own son:
Brandi Glanville let loose on her 7-year-old son Jake on her podcast Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, living up to the podcast¹s title in calling the child “a complete a**hole,” a “f*cker,” a “d*ck,” while running down a laundry list of the first grader’s foibles. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starlet’s questionable tangent came spilling out as she spoke with her guest on her podcast, actor Jake Lacy. “My son’s name is Jake: 
He’s 7, he’s a complete a**hole, but we love him. Oh man, he’s a d*ck, seriously,’ Glanville, 41, told Lacy. Glanville said that the boy unabashedly defies her, such as in cases when he shamelessly neglects to do something she asked of him. She said when she tells him, “I told you to do this,” he responds, “Well, I lied!

“He doesn’t try to get out of it — he says, ‘I lied,’ then he shows his dimples!” she said of her son. The statuesque beauty said even her mother, Judith Ann Glanville, has observed the boy’s unruly ways, calling it “total payback” for the hell she raised as a youngster. “Payback is a b*tch,” she said, laughing. And in perhaps the most cringeworthy moment in a series of them, the mother-of-two intimated her preference for Jake’s older brother, Mason. “I have an 11-year-old who’s awesome,” she said. “He doesn’t lie, he’s really sweet, he kisses me when I ask . . . he’s my baby.”

She told Lacy she’s “already, like, booking rehab for Jake down the road” based on his shenanigans.

Illustrating the mother-son dynamic between herself and Jake, she said that the boy sings to her lines from the Ariana Grande song “Problem” — specifically, the line, “I’ve Got One Less Problem Without You,” to her chagrin.

“I’m like, ‘Go f*ck yourself!’” she said, laughing, calling him a “f*cker” in passing.

Besides Jake’s attitude, Glanville also said “a problem” on the horizon is the tot¹s popularity with the ladies. “He’s basically got to second base with a lot of chicks already!” she said, noting that the first-grader had a fifth-grade girlfriend.

Of course, Brandi being Brandi, the reality star will go after the big boys just as soon as she will the little ones: During the podcast, Glanville noted a “big wrestler guy” — 90s pro wrestling sensation Bill Goldberg — was sweating her for hogging the studio, as she concluded, “He hates me! ‘He’s giving me dirty looks,” she said on-the-air. “He’s p*ssed.”

Now the question is, will Jake’s dad Eddie — or his outspoken wife LeAnn Rimes — be as well, after hearing Brandi’s rant?

Teresa and Joe Giudice's Sentencing Delayed to September Amid News of His Father's Death
Joe and Teresa Giudice's legal problems have been put on hold amid family tragedy. Following news of the death of Joe's father, Frank, the couple's July sentencing date has been postponed, Teresa's lawyer, Henry Klingeman, tells Us Weekly.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars were supposed to appear before a judge in Newark on July 8, but will now be allowed to take the time to grieve Frank's death. "Sentencing has been officially rescheduled to September 23," Klingeman tells Us. "The family is mourning Mr. Giudice," he adds.

When the twosome do appear in court, they'll be sentenced on several counts of bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, and failing to pay taxes. They pleaded guilty to the charges back in March.

"Today, I took responsibility for a series of mistakes I made several years ago," Teresa said in a statement to Us at the time. "I have said throughout that I respect the legal process and thus I intend to address the court directly at sentencing. I will describe the choices I made, continue to take responsibility for my decisions, and express my remorse to Judge Salas and the public."

For now, though, both she and Joe are focused on their family. As previously reported, Frank Giudice passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 18, at age 63.

Ramona Singer Ignores Cheating Talk, Refuses To Open Up To Friends About Husband Mario's Alleged Affair
Ramona Singer is not letting anyone know how much she may be suffering about her troubled marriage, and has exclusively learned that she shuts down any conversations about her husband’s infidelity, refusing to talk about her heartache.

The Real Housewives of New York City star has been dealing with her husband’s shocking cheating allegations, and Mario Singer’s much younger mistress Kasey Dexter didn’t go down without a fight.

“Ramona NEVER talks about Mario or the mistress, she absolutely shuts down cheating talk,” a source close to the blonde reality star told Radar.

As Ramona and Mario try to silence his mistress Dexter with legal letters, she continues to make headlines by claiming that the husband of the Housewife is still in love with her.

“Ramona refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem,” the source told Radar. “She is burying her head in the sand and she refuses to talk about what has happened.”

The source said that instead of fishing for gossip, friends close to Ramona are hoping they can help her through the rough time, but to no avail.

“She’s being really private,” the source said. “Ramona just puts on a happy face and tries not to let on that there is anything wrong at all.

“Everyone knows their marriage was broken but now she won’t let anyone in to help as she tries to repair the relationship.”

Lisa Vanderpump's Villa Blanca Hit With Huge Punitive Damage Awarded To Former Waitress
Villa Blanca Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Verdict
2:27 PM PT -- Vanderpump's attorney tells TMZ ... “We are in absolute shock at the amount of punitive damages that were awarded. Especially in light of nominal compensatory damages awarded and the lack of sufficient evidence. We plan to immediately file an appeal and are confident that we will prevail.” update_grey_gray_barLisa Vanderpump's restaurant just got nailed by an L.A. jury, which awarded a former waitress $100,000 in punitive damages in her sexual harassment lawsuit.

The whole jury verdict is bizarre ... jurors awarded Karina Bustillos over $6,000 last week after hearing testimony that a manager manhandled her, called her foul names and made sexual advances.  But what's weird ... the jury did not place any liability on the manager, making it seem like they didn't believe her.  So it's puzzling why Villa Blanca got nailed.

And now it's double-puzzling why the jury gave Karina punitives. 

Both sides declared victory last week, but now it seems the jury wanted to teach Villa Blanca a lesson.

Vanderpump vows she will appeal the verdict.

Frank was 63 years old.

TMZ was first to report the news of Joe's father passing; the tragic news comes during the midst of Joe and Teresa's current legal battle against fraud charges, which they plead guilty to back in March.

Frank is survived by his three children -- Joe, and children Maria and Pete -- and at least four grandchildren -- Joe and Teresa's daughters  -- Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana.

Tamra Barney and Ex-Husband Simon Still Failing to Resolve Custody Issues
It’s war! Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney Judge’s bitter custody battle with her ex, Simon Barney, is raging on with no end in sight. has exclusively learned that a recent attempt at mediation was a total bust, and with the couple set to battle it out in front of a judge, Judge has gone on the offensive, slamming her ex online!

As Radar has reported, the reality TV mom, 46, and her ex are slogging through a nasty custody battle that has seen accusations of neglect, child abuse, and worse! “My whole life is consumed with this, and it’s probably one of the most devastating things I’ve ever gone through in my life,” she said on RHOBH this week. “I cry probably every single day, and it’s hell.”

The couple recently tried to put an end to their squabbling with a mediator, to no avail. According to court documents filed in Orange County on June 10, Tamra and Simon met with a mediator on that date, “and were unable to reach an agreement.” A hearing has been scheduled for June 25.

After the mediation session was a bust, Tamra took to her Facebook to bash her ex with a Father’s Day post that quickly turned nasty.

“Thank you Simon for our beautiful children,” she began the surprisingly friendly post. “I hope you have a great day with them today.”

But when fans complimented her for her gesture, Tamra was quick to point out that she wasn’t exactly offering him an olive branch.

“If it wasn’t for him, I would not have my beautiful children,” she told one fan.
And then to another, she insisted, “People try to hurt you because they are hurt. I pray for him every night knowing that.”

Simon is suing Tamra for 100 percent custody of their three children: Sophia, 8, Spencer, 13, and Sydney, 15.

Dina Manzo Hosts Daughter Lexi's Graduation Party Without Estranged Family
Family feuds never end, especially not in New Jersey!

Caroline Manzo was not there and neither was Jacqueline Laurita,” a party-goer told our friend Tom Murro.

“But Teresa Giuidice was there and she looked like she was having a great time,” the spy said.

Dina and her sister Caroline have been estranged for a while, but drama between the two was avoided when Caroline did not return for another season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“Dina will still scrap with the other ladies, but she’s thrilled not to have to fight with Caroline or Jacqueline Laurita,” a source previously told Radar about her relationship with her relatives and the reality show.

And the graduation was drama free since the family members weren’t there fighting and Bravo cameras weren’t rolling.

“Dina was so happy and in her element,” the source told Radar.

“She seemed so proud of Lexi and she and Teresa were happily chatting. The whole night was perfect and thankfully there wasn’t any family drama at all.”

Shannon Beador Says Her Marriage Has Improved Since Filming Show
During last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, tension between Shannon Beador and her husband David came to a head when he wrote her an e-mail suggesting he move out for a while. But Shannon says things are better now that they've each put some work into their relationship.

"It's tough to watch," Shannon said last night on Watch What Happens Live of watching her marriage issues on TV. "I realize that nagging and complaining isn't going to get me where I want in my relationship with my husband. And I've absolutely made adjustments. And it's been good." 

She goes into more detail about her problems on her Bravo blog, where she explains how important it is for her to take responsibility for her part in order to make things better.

"I have been very open about the state of my marriage and how I want more. I want to be on the same team with David -- partners in life. I do not think I am a victim and I do not intend to send that message. I am not blaming my husband for distancing himself from me. In fact, today, I take most of the responsibility it is happening."

One of the things that the show helped her realize is that she needed to make some simple changes, like getting on the same schedule as her husband.  

David wakes up at 4:30am every morning so he goes to bed when the kids do, around 8:30pm. I am a night owl so I usually stay up late at night," Shannon explains on her blog. "Watching the show has knocked sense into me about the clock I need to keep. I am glad that you get to see one of my 'A-ha!' moments. It literally hit me in my interview that I need to change my clock as a first step to improving my marriage."

Now she admits that things are going a lot better with her husband, and while it's hard to expose this side of herself to the world, she hopes some good can come of it.

"I am far from a 'sad soul.' All marriages go through rough patches. I am not justifying that it is right to behave inappropriately, but it is a reality that couples argue and things are not always perfect. Resolution of conflicts and communication are factors that define a successful marriage. For better or worse, you are seeing an honest and authentic representation of my marital struggles with David and I hope that some of you can relate and improve upon your relationships as we do with ours."

Sonja Morgan Loses French Villa In Bankruptcy Case
Sonja Morgan better learn how to say "broke as a joke" in French -- she just lost her fabulous St. Tropez villa in her bankruptcy case ... and a bunch of pigs nearly screwed the deal.

The trustee in her longstanding bankruptcy sold off the Riviera vacay spot for $5.7 million, according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

The "Real Housewives of New York" star has been telling people SHE was selling to be financially responsible, but truth is the court-appointed trustee sold it ... and Sonja had no say in the deal.

Sonja had said she was listing it for $8 million -- but the trustee sold it for much less, partly because the place wasn't easy to unload. According to the docs, the trustee ran into several issues ... including wild boars destroying the landscaping back in January.

French wild pigs, dude. Zut alors!

Phaedra Parks Didn’t Mention Apollo Nida on Father’s Day
The ladies of Hotlanta are pretty strong in their social media game, and we love them for it! In fact, there’s rarely a holiday or birthday that goes by without all of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast sounding off on Twitter or Instagram. The latest? Sunday June 15, otherwise known as Father’s Day!

Pretty much everyone, from NeNe Leakes to Kandi Burruss, took a moment on the special day to shoutout either their own fathers, or the fathers of their children (aka their hubbies). Notably absent from this list? 

Phaedra Parks, who made a point to commend the role of fathers in general, but chose not to mention husband Apollo Nida by name. 

“Happy Father's Day to all dads & moms playing dual roles!! #HappyFathersDay,” she posted to Instagram on June 15.

Additionally, Phaedra posted a ton on Twitter during the day, promoting her recent appearances on radio shows Hot 107.9 Atlanta and Dish Nation, yet she still didn’t mention her legally troubled baby daddy in the middle of all that. So what gives?

Phaedra and Apollo have been open about the struggles in their marriage, even admitting to attending couples therapy. Much of this discord stems from Apollo’s ongoing legal issues, following his guilty plea to bank and wire fraud. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in early July.

It should be noted, however, that Apollo did spend time with his elder son Ayden, 4, on the holiday. The Househusband took to Instagram to share pics of himself during the father-son fishing trip, writing, “Out fishing with my son on Father's Day.”

Coworkers Slam Porsha Williams' Return To ‘RHOA’, Says She Still Needs ‘Anger Management!’ told you first!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams was facing the chopping block after her knock down drag out fight with Kenya Moore during the reunion special taping, but she has now confirmed our exclusive story that she is returning to the hit show for another season.

However, her co-workers think Williams might still need anger management classes after the brawl.

Now a host on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in Atlanta that is featured on Dish Nation, Williams told her radio co-stars that she belongs back on the Bravo show.

“I believe she deserves the opportunity,” Williams said, speaking about herself in the third person.

“She should be able to come back. You know, people are interested in her life. I think it’s great for her.”

Her co-worker played Devil’s advocate with the violence-prone reality star, expressing doubt about her decision to head back into the ring with the other ladies.

“I don’t know. I’m still on the fence if she should go back on that,” Gary with da Tea said.

“Because it was violence. The kids saw that. The kids saw fighting and fighting is just not a good thing. When you fight you should have to deal with your consequences. I think she should be put on a suspension, at least go to some kind of anger management class. Because that was just violence.”

Williams, who was arrested after the fight with Moore, might not be over her wild ways yet, telling Gary with da Tea: “I think we going to have some violence here at Dish Nation if you keep on.”
