just couldn’t believe that Cynthia was letting NeNe call Peter a bitch
like that,” Kandi told host Andy Cohen. “She didn’t defend him at all.”
Kandi may have thought Cynthia’s passive role in the situation was
inappropriate, she did admit that the entire fight was difficult to
navigate for all of the parties involved.
couldn’t really say anything, because then he’s going to look like a
bitch,” explained Kandi. “It was a weird situation to be in, but now,
Peter does get in arguments with women a lot … but she still should have
stuck up for him.”
Still--despite our best efforts--Sonja remained as classy and diplomatic as ever.
Classicalite: How do you possibly find time to star on Real Housewives of New York, run a successful event planning company and raise millions for charities, all while looking so fabulous?
Sonja Morgan: Even though it's reality TV, I don't think a lot of
people realize how many hours go into location and outfit changes
between real life and the life that we film on camera, because even
though we give you a slice of our real life, it's not always
There's also some set design, so that's when the interns come in
handy. We have to move furniture for camera angles up and down the
stairs at times. Especially for doing an art show, party or luncheon,
and some things just can't be filmed like family photos or paintings
that are not cleared, so there is a lot behind the scenes that goes on.
And it takes 85 hours of film to make one 45-minute episode.
So, you only get to see the silly but funny moments and then, of
course, when we're at our very worst--because that makes the best
C: Tell me a little bit about what it's like to run Sonja in the City and the kind of clients to which you typically cater. S: I have people who have known me for decades that call me to put
together something memorable for a special occasion, a corporate event
or a charity that we have collaborated on before.
But now, with the show and my website, I've even had people email me
asking me to do a sweet 16 or a bat mitzvah and those are fun, too. I
really pick and choose because I don't have so much time, especially
while I'm filming for five months.
The Sonja in the City events that I do on the show I sometimes only
have a couple of days to put them together, but the jobs I choose I have
sometimes up to a year to plan.
C: What's the most fun event you recently hosted? S: I would say every event I plan is fun, that's why I do them. I
only work with people I enjoy working with. I loved the season six
Sonja in the City premiere party at Tokya, where we had over 450 people
and all my co-stars came. They looked so beautiful. We had wonderful
sponsors, and I gathered tons of press, plus my daughter was able to
attend and everything I do is to make sure she is secure. Bravo has been
wonderful for that. All my co-stars' children were invited. I adore
It was a great learning experience for my interns and came together
beautifully in the short span of a week, even though I had to travel to
three cities within the same week doing promotions for the show.
Hank Stampfl of Speakeasy Modern brought 90 Broadway and Off Broadway
performers to blow away the 500 in attendance. Many thanks to David
Klimnick and all his genius he shares with the LGBT youth.
C: Is it hard for you to attend parties that aren't put on by
your company? I imagine it's difficult to attend functions you know
could have been planned much better if your company was hired to produce
them. Can you think of an event you attended where you thought, 'Oh my
God. They really should have hired me for this.' S: I'm not going to lie, I prefer my parties to other people's
parties in general. But that's because I love entertaining. The biggest
problem I experience is bad layout, and this creates lack of energy.
People go to a party to interact. A party needs sex appeal. A good
hostess knows how to create a good mix. With a placement dinner, it is
of the utmost importantance that the hostess possess this skill. I

LeAnn Rimes is understandably angry that Brandi Glanville didn’t immediately let Eddie Cibrian know that his son, Mason, had been rushed to the hospital in New York.
“My husband need (sic) to be notified. Period,” LeAnn said Sunday afternoon.
Cibrian and Rimes
didn’t learn the details of Mason’s medical emergency until the
10-year-old was able to call his dad himself, and that was apparently
hours after he’d been in the emergency room at a New York City hospital.
But shockingly, she wasn’t the first to let her ex, Eddie, know when Mason had his emergency.
Cibrian and Rimes first heard from a friend that something was going
on with Mason and it was hours later before they were able to get in
contact with the boy! “Got a text from a friend at 4:30am asking if mason was ok. THANK
GOD! Mason just called Eddie himself!! It’s been a panicked morning not
knowing anything and mason being all the way across the US.
know he’s ok.,” Rimes told her followers.
Fortunately, Mason is on the mend. “He is doing a lot better and all will be fine,” Glanville wrote Sunday afternoon.
It has been reported that Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore went at each other’s throats (OK, worse — each other’s hair) during the March 27 taping of the Season 6 RHOA reunion, and now other sources are claiming that Porsha is at risk of being fired from Season 7 of the dramarama that is The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Read on for all the details! During the taping, ”They did get into an altercation. Porsha stood
up, so then Kenya stood up. … Porsha charged at Kenya and pulled her
hair, but it was over in a matter of seconds. Porsha never dragged her
by her hair. Andy [Cohen] and a producer jumped in and then security came,” Us Weekly reported. Yikes — that’s pretty intense.
The mag reported that Kenya is “fine,” but RadarOnline
doesn’t think that Porsha will be… The site claims that Porsha is on
the chopping block and may not be asked to film for Season 7. However,
producers wouldn’t make such a “rash decision like that,” their source
said. They just shot the reunion. A lot of conversations have to happen, so no decisions have been made yet.”
However, their source continued that “of course” Andy and other
producers were upset and unhappy, and even “Porsha was upset. No one
wanted that to happen.”
“That isn’t a surprise at all. Teresa and Joe have spent
years defrauding the government and they don’t know how to stop living
so extravagantly now,” the source said.
Shockingly, another source told Radar that Teresa spent
hundreds of dollars getting her hair and makeup done for the event, a
significant expense for the financially troubled reality star.
“Every penny that Teresa makes from her shows, books and
her hair care product line has always been spent and even now people are
worried that she’s still not saving. Both she and Joe are refusing to
admit that things could be really bad for their family.”
In a new interview with Life & Style,
Vanderpump, 53, revealed that she isn’t sure she would return for
another season of ‘RHOBH’ if Bravo decides to bring Glanville, 41, back.
“She and Ken are both throwing a major fit to Bravo telling them to take Brandi off the show,” a source said. And Vanderpump didn’t deny it.
“Who knows what will happen?” she said. “But why would I stay?”
Vanderpump said that after all that happened this past “Brandi has created so many lies,” Vanderpump explained. “It was done six months ago.
She added, “Too many things — too many nasty things — were said.”
The pinnacle of their fight occurred when Glanville found out that Vanderpump was close to Scheana Marie and Glanville didn’t like the fact that Marie had claimed to carry on an affair with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. “Brandi became convinced Lisa had lied to her and had known about the affair when it happened,” another source said.
It just got real. Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore got into a vicious brawl on Thursday, March 27, Us Weekly can confirm. The incident occurred while the two ladies were filming the always-combative reunion special for the Bravo series. "There was a major physical altercation between Porsha and Kenya," an insider tells Us.
"To the point that Porsha beat the crap out of Kenya, dragged her
across the stage by her hair, and gave her a major beatdown." Stewart and Moore
have been going head-to-head with each other for years. Back in
November 2012, Moore called then-newcomer Stewart "naive" and a
"heifer," and ranted about her new costar just minutes after meeting her
in Season 5.
"Losing my cool, getting out character, cursing somebody else,
embarrassing yourself . . . I can pretty much say I've done all of
that!" Moore told Us during a visit to our NYC headquarters at the time. "It's a reality show, things happen." During season six, Moore antagonized Stewart further in the aftermath of her split from husband Kordell Stewart -- suggesting that Porscha was a "beard" for the NFL pro.
“Bethenny has been talking with Andy about returning to Bravo with another show, and this would be one of the first things he produces with his new company,” a source close to the reality star told Radar.
Cohen, 45, has started his own production company and scoring a hit with Frankel is a high priority the source said.
“They’ve been in deep negotiations and she is definitely ready to return to Bravo, even though she loved being on network TV with her other show.”
The source also said that Frankel is still turning her back on the show that made her famous.
“Bethenny probably won’t stoop to that level and go back on RHONYC, she thinks she’s beyond and above that.”
Another source with knowledge of Frankel’s ambitions revealed to Radar what she’s hoping to arrange.
“Bethenny wants a separate deal of her own on Bravo.”
According to recent reports, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster is on the verge of getting a divorce from her composer husband, David Foster.
By now, it shouldn’t be shocking to find out that any of the Real
Housewives are getting divorced, considering their lives and careers
revolve around creating drama and scandal for television views.
Obviously, that’s bound to pass over onto their personal lives, and
Yolanda’s just another example of that.
The couple recently listed their Malibu
house on the market, which initially sparked the rumors that they were
separating and getting divorced. Yolanda has also solidified the rumors
by getting rid of Foster as her last name, and she’s now started using
Hadid, her previous married name.
Yolanda is David’s fourth wife [they got
married in 2011], so David’s clearly used to divorce. He obviously
views it as a viable option and one that’s very easy to take, and I can
see it being very easy for David and Yolanda to call quits on their
marriage instead of fighting through their troubles.
Of course, this isn’t Yolanda’s first marriage either – she was married to Mohamed Hadid,
her insanely wealthy former husband. She has three kids with Mohamed,
and she still got divorced to him. What’s stopping her from calling it
quits with David if they are in trouble? David’s barely involved with
the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, something that Yolanda often gets
called out on during the show. But if the rumors are true, then it’s
obvious that Yolanda and David are on the verge of separating and that’s
the biggest reason he hasn’t made many appearances on the Real
Sonja, 50, is currently dating 23-year-old real estate developer Ben Benalloul. And yes, he appears in the Season 6 premiere of RHoNY, which airs on March 11 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
We'll even get to hear Sonja's co-stars make quips about the relationship. For example, Heather Thomson says, "Sonja has as many men as she has interns, and some of them are the same age." Zing!
However, Sonja says she doesn't see herself as a cougar. "When I look in the mirror, I see a young girl," she tells RumorFix. "My tits are firm, and my ass is up! I don’t feel like a cougar."
So what does Sonja like about being with
Ben? "He’s fun," she explains. "He’s got a black card. He takes you to
Paris." Okay, so maybe those aren't the deepest reasons in the world to
date someone, but her reasons make sense to us.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"
season four will come to an end next Monday, following the show's
season four reunion special, and as that happens, the cast and producers
are preparing the series upcoming fifth season.
Earlier this month, it was reported that producers had opted to give
the boot to Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud, who were added to the show
ahead of season four, in lieu of at least two new women. And now, it has
been said that those two women could be Faye Resnick and Camille Grammer.
On March 25, Radar Online reported,
"The interior designer, whose name is forever linked to the O.J.
Simpson case and a heavily-touted Playboy spread she did thereafter,
partied with cast mainstay Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio
Umansky over the weekend, spurring increased speculation she’d be
joining Kyle, her sister Kim, and the rest of the 90210 divas on the
Bravo drama fest."
According to the report, Faye and Kyle were seen in Las Vegas where
they attended an event alongside fellow former cast member, Camille.
Although Camille's rep previously denied she was returning to the
show, negotiations haven't yet been finalized, so there's really no way
of knowing anything for sure.
The question now is: Will this newfound common ground last the entire season of RHONY?
“Definitely Aviva and I last season did no end on a good note,” Ramona Singer told RadarOnline.com. “In fact, in between filming, I would run into her at social events and I would just smile nicely and keep walking.” Their first interaction since the last season actually didn’t take place until filming for the new season resumed. “The first time I ever spoke to her was on the first episode,” Singer clarified.
And when Singer found out that Drescher would be coming to Thomson’s party, she wasn’t that thrilled. “To tell you the truth, I was dreading that she was coming,” she said.
But Singer tried to be the bigger person.
“I knew Heather had invited her — Heather was friends with her and
Heather’s a friend of mine, so I said, ‘Okay, I have to rise above it. I
guess for the good of the group, I have come,’” Singer said.
“’Hopefully she won’t come over to me’ … but she did.” Singer’s wishes didn’t work out though, as fans saw in the premiere episode.
Singer confirmed, “We had a confrontation.”
But at the end of the episode, the two enemies called a truce. “We had a conversation,” Singer said. “And we basically kind of made amends.”
Sadly, it doesn’t sound like the kinks in their friendship were all worked out.
“You are going to see during the season where Aviva basically has problems with
some of the other women that she never did have problems, which kind of
made me question, ‘Why make up with her?’” Singer admitted. “I only
made up with her because of all of you guys, so what the heck is going
It might be the end of Lisa Vanderpump's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reign.
53-year-old restaurant mogul, who has appeared on "RHOBH" since its
premiere in 2010, may not sign on for another season of the hit Bravo
series, which she says has turned into a "bitch fest."
“I don’t know, right now I have to be honest. It is a tough season for me," Vanderpump told RadarOnline.com.
"I have got a lot going on. If it becomes about a bitch fest then it is
not something I signed up for; but if it becomes about documenting my
life, which is the show I signed up for and having fun and supporting
women that is something I want to do. But the way the show was in the
end, the last episodes, that is not something I would care to repeat.”
Apparently, nothing has been decided for next season yet.
am not signed on and I don’t know whether I am staying and don’t think
any of us do right now," she added. “Everyone wants to stay, but I don’t
know. I have a lot to consider I am opening a new business, I have
'Vanderpump Rules' and let’s see if they both get picked up and let
Bravo make the decision and offer and see where we go from there.”
The news comes on the heels of a drama-filled Season 4. While she started out the season surrounded by friends, Vanderpump was singled-out by the other women who accused her of playing games and lying come the finale.
The drama continued on Monday with Part 1 of the "RHOBH" reunion special.
Yolanda Foster accused Vanderpump of being an absent friend while she
was battling Lyme disease and Brandi Glanville claimed she's a different
person when the cameras are on.
If Vanderpump does decide to leave, that could mean some major changes for the "RHOBH" cast. Last month, it was reported that Mohamed Hadid's fiancee, Shiva Safai, is being recruited as an official cast member because newbies Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia are on the chopping block.
RadarOnline.com has learned
that a former customer of her modeling agency is accusing her of taking
cash from innocent parents in a contest scheme.
Atlanta mom Dorothy Lewis claims she entered her granddaughter, Paris, into a modeling competition on Bailey’s website — at a cost of $20. The website claimed it would choose a winner each month and feature
them on the site. But months later, she claims, there had not been a
winner chosen since October 2013 — even though the site continued to
collect cash. According to a CBS Atlanta investigation, the agency
collected 79 entries and $1,580 without naming a winner.
“It’s just not right to be advertising that you’re going to do one
thing and take people’s money from around the country and you’re not
following through on what your’e saying,” Lewis told CBS Atlanta. “It’s like false advertisement.”
Making matters worse, the website claimed that a portion of the
proceeds would go to Atlanta Diaper Relief, a nonprofit that actually
closed six months ago, the news channel found. But Bailey insists that it was all a misunderstanding. After being
approached by CBS, she updated the website to show a different charity
as the recipient, and listed the contest winners retroactively.
“I apologize for any negligence on my part as
far as my staff not keeping the website properly updated,” she said in a
statement. “I hope after receiving all the correct and updated
information from me personally, you can appreciate the sincerity of my
intentions. I appreciate you for bringing this important matter to my
Not all housewives are created equal. Bravo announced the results of its first-ever Real Housewives Awards, sharing the winners' list -- according to online votes -- over the weekend. Perhaps shockingly, the women of Real Housewives of New York and Miami

Last week, I heard the men of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” are working on a spin-off show of their own. Perhaps that’s why they are working so hard to generate drama this season themselves.
Take Peter Thomas (Cynthia Bailey‘s hubby) and Gregg Leakes (Nene Leakes’ husband).
Peter had gotten into NeNe’s face a few episodes ago when NeNe acted like a jerk at Kenya Moore’s fundraiser for her. At at the time, Gregg said nothing.
But now Gregg feels it’s time to clear the air with Peter. He
believes Peter was inappropriate going after NeNe, that if he had an
issue, he should have just gone to Gregg.
Gregg says if he tries that again, Gregg might have to get in his
face: “You not only disrespected my wife but you disrespected me.”
He claims Peter came up to NeNe all crazy but in fact, NeNe heard Peter was upset and came up to him. This argument devolves quickly into a verbal curse-fest and almost a
physical altercation. Gregg has rarely gotten angry on the show so this
behavior is highly unusual.
The women show up.
“You need to stay out of women’s business,” NeNe says to Peter. “You
are causing problems. What we do as women are between us. You have to
stop rolling with the women! You have to stop being a damn b****!”
There were a couple of other meaty story lines, too:
- Last week, we had a bit of a cliffhanger when Phaedra Parks walked in on Apollo Nida and Kenya Moore
yappin’ away – in a public setting. She looks tired and peeved. But
before Phaedra has a chance to give Kenya some lip, NeNe and Porsha Stewart
pop in and Phaedra decides to leave and go to bed. (Kenya, in last
week’s episode, wanted Apollo to apologize for spreading supposedly
false rumors about her. He wasn’t terribly apologetic and even said he
could have slept with her if he could. Truth.) Eventually, Kenya and Apollo shake hands and agree to be ‘friends,”
whatever that means. Porsha and NeNe tell Apollo what he did was wrong.
“I’m not a child. I don’t need someone to hold my hand,” Apollo says in
his defense. “At the end of the day, I didn’t do anything
“Apollo has to respect his significant other to get respect,” NeNe says to the cameras.
Phaedra, away from Kenya, calls her a “wilted up whore… She’s like
‘Single Black Female.’ I wish a shaman could invent her a man and give
her a life.”
Previously, Phaedra had explicitly told Apollo to not talk to Kenya
outside her purview. He, the stubborn type, doesn’t know that this is a
pretty solid boundary she had set and an easy one for him to follow. He
chose not to follow it because he has pride and a desire for
independence. He’s oddly willing to jeopardize the trust of his wife to
make a point. Or something like that.
The next day, Phaedra explains to Apollo that there should be no
“friendship” between him and Kenya, especially after that exercise video
copycat nonsense and the inappropriate flirting. She doesn’t trust
Kenya. She had previously told Kenya to stay away from her man, which
she ignored. “Once a snake, always a snake,” Phaedra says.
He tries to make it up to her by holding her a surprise birthday
party, where she is blindfolded and hits a pinata that is packed with
condoms. (Amusing side notes: Gregg grabs several and pockets them. And
Porsha hit the pinata so hard, she knocks down the top of the cake.)
The party appears to cheer Phaedra up.
Later, Kenya holds a “make up” session from that nasty couples night
several episodes back. (“The one you f***ed up?” Peter cracks.)
Kenya has the ladies answer random provocative questions. Porsha says
she likes he sex both rough and romantic and “older” lovers are better
with the romantic because they’re slower. NeNe, for whatever reason,
takes exception to this and calls her comment ‘ignorant,” when in fact
that was just her experience. NeNe later calls Kandi ignorant by asking
if NeNe was menopausal in her 40s. Todd defends Kandi by saying NeNe is
insulting in her delivery. NeNe is unapologetic.
Kristen Taekman will (very!) soon make her Real Housewives debut! The 36-year-old model joins the sixth season of The Real Housewives of New York City, which premieres Tuesday, March 11.
According to he biography on Bravo's website, Taekman is married to
EBOOST co-founder Josh Taekman, and mom to son Cash, 5, and daughter
Kingsley, 2. She also has her own line of greeting card boxes called 2nd
Street Press. During a March 4 press conference, however, Taekman -- who joins veteran ladies Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Aviva Drescher, andLuann de Lesseps
-- shared even more about what fans can expect to see from her on the
Bravo reality show. Check out five things you may not know about RHONYC's newest housewife below. 1. RHOBH's Brandi Glanville and RHONYC's
Heather Thomson recommended her for the show. "Once I realized that she
and [Josh] were interested in doing the show -- which I did find out
funny enough through [Brandi], kind of, and [Kristen] actually at the
very same time," costar Thomson explained, "I was so excited because I
knew how great of an addition [Kristen] would be."
2. Taekman has already sparked some controversy. Her
opening tagline -- "I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I'm
pretty!" -- hasn't been well-received. "I just can't believe that
people are having an issue with it. It's like it's the funniest thing
ever," Taekman said. "I'm 36 and I'm still a model, and I kind of like
play off of the fact that, you know, not all models are the sharpest
tool in the shed."
3. She's not above arguing with her hubby -- in
fact, it's flirty! "We fight, we bicker. We have a two and a
five-year-old, so we're still changing diapers and my daughter still
gets up some nights. That just really weighs heavy on us as a couple,"
Taekman explained. "And then towards the end of the season, I decided
that our bickering is our personal form of flirting. So I'm going to
stick with that." 4. Brandi Glanville was a bridesmaid in her wedding .
. . and vice versa. "We're really, really close friends," Taekman
shared about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars. "She was one of
my bridesmaids in my wedding. And I was at her wedding. People [have]
to cut [Brandi] some slack."
5. She doesn't consider herself the "Brandi" of RHONYC.
"I definitely swear, but not as much as she does," Taekman said of
Glanville. "I'm a lot like her. I think that we could almost be sisters,
but kind of like from a different mother kind of thing."
“A few of the housewives are sh-t stirrers and wanted to put her on
the spot — even though they knew it wasn’t true,” the source told Radar.
Gebbia, who has been very open about her sexuality and even smooched co-star Brandi Glanville this season, outright “denied the allegations” that she’d ever done XXX. She scoffed at her jealous co-stars for referring to her saucy role in the 2001 erotic thriller Seduced – Pretty When You Cry as porn.
“She was like, ‘That was a love scene,’” the source told Radar.
“Carlton thinks it’s ridiculous. Her co-stars will do anything to start
There’s no official word on if Bravo will include the confrontation
during the three-part reunion. But this isn’t the first time Gebbia has
been asked about her rumored pornographic past.
During an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked Gebbia whether she had already or would ever considering being in a porno.
“Ok, um no never did porn. Only in my bedroom,” she stated.
But would she ever consider doing porn? “Oh, piss off,” Gebbia quipped.
If we had to guess the soundtrack to Porsha Williams' life right now, Destiny's Child's "Independent Women" would definitely be on there.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who finalized her divorce from NFL star Kordell Stewart in December,
didn't receive anything from the public split—because that's what she
wanted. Williams set the record straight on what happened with her
fallen marriage during an appearance on Bethenny (airing Monday).
didn't ask for anything. Right now in the press it's, 'Porsha didn't
get anything, poor Porsha,' and people are feeling sorry for me because I
didn't get anything and they think that we went to trial and I lost,"
"I didn't go to trial, I chose not to go to court.
So there was no judgement. What happened was...it just tore me apart to
go through this divorce, it really did. It was so traumatic and it
ruled over my life. I woke up...I'm divorcing, every single day and I
wanted the freedom. I wanted to be done with it so before we had court
the next week, I woke up, called my attorney, we were scheduled for
court, to go to court and me plead my side and he plead his side."
She continued, "So I told my attorney, 'Listen, I am done with this.
Get the divorce decree, I am coming to sign it.' I said the only thing I
want him to do is pay for my hospital bills because I didn't have
insurance. He didn't have insurance on me or his son."
That little tidbit stunned Bethenny Frankel, who pointed out that Williams lived a life of luxury yet didn't have health insurance?!
I had insurance on myself after the divorce, but the debt we had was
for insurance. Remember, I wasn't working," Porsha explained. "The debt
was there still from insurance bills. That's what I wanted him to pay.
That's it, that's all I asked him to do and I got my car. Yeah, and he
did that. I am good. I have health insurance now. I'm completely
Headlining the event — hosted by one of her best friends Kim Depaola —
tickets were advertised for $110 that included dinner, wine, music and a
fashion show, but there was no mention of charging for a signature from
one of Bravo’s most controversial stars!
“Teresa was advertised as the the celebrity guest and that she would
be signing copies of her latest book. But nowhere was it advertised that
she would be charging guests $25 to sign and take a photo with her!”
one guest told Radar. “When you walked up to her, the woman next to her was quick to advise
that it was $25 and ‘cash only.’ Cash only? Who takes cash only? Even
Teresa was telling guests it was ‘cash only, no receipts’ and she had
bags of cash beside her where her colleague was collecting the money.”
According to the eyewitness, guests were okay with paying for a book — but some were shocked when their plastic was turned down!
“The reaction of everyone was priceless. It was the hot topic of the
event. Why would someone insist on cash only?” the eyewitness added.
“Everyone was saying it was clearly to avoid a paper trial of her sales.”
As Radar previously reported, Giudice, 41, and her husband Joe
were charged with 41 counts of fraud and tax evasion and after pleading
guilty and ultimately taking a plea deal, both face large fines and
prison time. Teresa now faces 27 months in prison, while husband Joe could get 46 months and is likely be deported back to Italy.
The original bank and bankruptcy fraud charges centered on their inability to file tax returns from 2004 to 2008.
Lisa defended herself against Yolanda's statements that she wasn't
willing to put in the time to have a real friendship. Lisa wrote that
she was simply going through a very busy period in her life. She also
pointed out that other cast members did not go to Yolanda's events
either. Lisa doesn't believe that she should be punished for not having
"I don't define my friends by the amount of time I spend with them. I
define them by their loyalty and how much fun I have with them in the
time when we are together," she wrote.
She further implied that Yolanda is the fake Hollywood friend.
"I would say a Hollywood friend would be someone who would be
competitive. Someone who would go to your friends and say derogatory
things about you, then deny it. Maybe someone who would create a
scenario that attempts to sully your husband's reputation. Maybe that
would be a Hollywood friend," she wrote, a clear reference to Yolanda
being upset at Ken Todd for touching her at the show's final party.
Clearly, Lisa believes that Yolanda overreacted.
At least Lisa has Joyce Giraud on her side when it comes to Yolanda.
"Her [Yolanda] saying Lisa is a "Hollywood friend" for being busy is
the most ridiculous thing in this planet.
True friends DO NOT NEED TO
SPEAK EVERY DAY...I never (not once) heard Lisa say anything negative
about Yolanda. Yet in our very first one-on-one, Yolanda was quick to
talk about Lisa," Joyce wrote in her latest blog entry.
Say goodbye to Lisa and Lenny Hochstein's Star Island home! The Real
Housewives of Miami couple finally won their battle to tear down their
1920s mansion, and they have now begun to tear the mansion down.
couple purchased the 1925 home in 2012, paying just under $8 million
for the estate. As it turns out, the home itself is valued at just over a
million dollars, while the beachside land itself is really what's
valued so highly.
Lisa, 31, and Lenny decided to tear down the
home and build a state-of-the-art pad, but it wasn't quite as easy as
they hoped. Miami area preservationists fought tooth and nail to save
the home, eventually losing an appeal to save the home and running out of money to further their cause.
On March 18, Lisa took to Twitter to let her fans know that demolition had begun. "I just took the first
major chunk out of our star island home in my High heels," she wrote. "I
can do anything in heels lol #demolition #bubbye."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Glanville’s ex-husband and Rimes have signed to do a semi-reality show.
The scripted show, titled LeAnn and Eddie, will be based on
the “normalcy” of their lives at home as well as dealing with their
celebrity status, the producers said in a press release. How they’ll do
that without including the two kids remains to be seen.
Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks may have more legal drama to contend with in the coming weeks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple are headed for divorce, according to RumorFix.com.
Nida and Parks are reportedly already separated following Nida's
indictment on several counts of fraud and identity theft. He is
currently on house arrest pending trial, but could face 20 years in
prison if convicted.
Parks, a lawyer herself, is allegedly looking to clear herself of any
charges related to Nida's legal troubles. The reality star, who has been
spotted looking considerably thinner in recent weeks, is struggling to
keep her public profile clean of her husband's wrongdoings, according to
But divorce may not protect Parks from the law. The attorney and businesswoman is reportedly listed as a co-owner on several of her husband's businesses, though its not clear if those businesses are under investigation by authorities.
No word on how — or if — the couple's legal or marital drama will play out on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Parks' planned spin-off show, Rich People Problems, is reportedly on hold for now.
Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radizwill
would like to set the record straight. She didn't have a ghostwriter
for "What Remains," her bestselling memoir, contrary to what Aviva Drescher told the world in the second episode of the sixth season of RHONY.
the episode, Aviva, who revealed in the first episode of the season
that she got a book deal for a memoir, meets with Carole for lunch and
blindsides the Emmy-winning journalist with reported gossip that she
used a ghostwriter to pen her bestseller. Then Aviva takes that "news"
to all the other ladies of New York. "Let's just say what Aviva calls ‘silly show drama' or
whatever—however she characterizes it—the entire legal community calls
slander," Carole told E! News. "So no, I wasn't happy to see that on
television. But I was very weary of Aviva going into this season and it
was not an unpopular feeling among the group. Let me be clear, let me
break it down. Aviva is on a reality show, she got a book deal and she
hired a ghostwriter. It's not that complicated. I do not use a
ghostwriter. I never have. I think it's clear in the show that she has
little understanding of publishing and very clear that she has little
respect for single, working women. She doesn't know the difference
between a writer, an editor and a ghostwriter...She has very little
understanding and rightly so, it's not her profession. I don't know why
she went on the show claiming to suddenly be a writer. Still, to this
day, I don't understand that. I don't know what her problem was with
me." In the episode, the two met for lunch to discuss Aviva's book,
"Leggy Blonde," and her process in writing the memoir. Then things got
weird. "She was very insulting at lunch and very demeaning of my work
and sort of generally acting really strange. I still, to this day, don't
see what I said that would trigger her to make up these lies and go
behind my back," Carole said. "She lied when she told me she didn't hire
a writer. When she said that in the scene I was a little taken aback
because I thought she was going to bring that process, whatever it is,
on camera and promote her book."
Carole said Aviva continued to
lie to the other women on the show, especially when she said she wrote
the book like writing a long email. "No offense to people who write long
emails, I'm sure they're fascinating, but it's not like writing a
book," Carole said with a laugh.
"She asked me to help her find a writer to work with, and I did.
Under the umbrella of no good deed goes unpunished, I wish I had never
gotten involved with it at all," she said. "But again, it's not about
books, it's about behavior. She has a destructive pattern of character
assassination and we've all seen it and I just feel like I was her
"To divert attention from her own lies, she made
these ridiculous accusations about me. I think it was completely
unprovoked. I asked a very innocent question. I thought she was going to
bring that process on camera and clearly she wanted the world to think
of her as a writer," she said. "I suppose she was looking for a way to
promote her book, and I understand that, and she knew by attacking me
she'd get a lot of airtime, and she did."
Aviva said Carole worked with former Atlantic Monthly and New Yorker editor Bill Whitworth
as the ghostwriter on "What Remains." In reality, Carole said she met
him late in the publishing process. "I hired him to do copyediting, even
though it is so beneath him and I even hate to say that because he is
one of the most well-respected, esteemed, legendary editors in all of
publishing," she said. "I was lucky to work with him and it's just
unfortunate that she—I don't know where she got that."
According to Aviva, her publisher told her about Carole's
ghostwriter. Carole said Aviva's publisher is a professional colleague
and personal friend and would never say that and has since apologized
for even having her association with it brought up. "This wasn't like an
emotional tirade [where] she called me ‘white trash,' this is a very
calculated and manipulative attempt to spread this gossip as a way to
divert attention from what she was saying.
"So Aviva Drescher is a
writer now and I'm not, so it's hilarious. I don't want to demean
myself much further by giving her ridiculous accusations any more
seriousness than they deserve," she continued. "But, I signed up for a
reality show, not an altered reality show. Aviva can be very nice when
you're going along with her agenda. But if you don't, whatever, thank
her husband enough, or don't give her the support she feels entitled to
or you call her out for being less than honest, she can become a very,
very unpleasant person and we've all seen it—everyone in the group has
seen it—and everyone was weary of her."
The exchange starts innocently enough, when host Andy Cohen asks the
British beauty, “Why do you think [Kim] feels like you don’t take her
seriously?” “Maybe I just don’t get her,” Vandperump confesses.
Richards – who is now sober
– identified her problems with Vanderpump, admitting she doesn’t
believe that her co-star’s concern about her whereabouts, while she was
battling her addictions, comes from a place of genuine friendship.
“Yes, I missed a whole lot, Lisa, and it wasn’t just your party. “I missed a huge chunk of my f–––ing life and my children’s lives, and I’m sorry if I missed a party or two,” Richards says.
Vanderpump jumps on the defense, insisting she is “pissed off” by the
accusations and “never made a big deal” about Richards’ absence from
But Richards isn’t ready to give in. “I’ve never actually seen you be there for any one of us,” Richards said. ”You’re full of s––– right now.”
The 46-year-old beauty, who once worked as an exotic dancer, said she was focused on “shaking her bon-bon” for the national audience, and delivered a premiere performance Ricky Martin would have been proud of. The charismatic Leakes, who’s paired with Tony Dovolani, showed off her nimble feet dancing the cha-cha-cha to Robin Thicke‘s
“Give It 2 U,” garnering a standing ovation from the studio audience,
and 21 out of 30 possible points from the judges in her first time out.
Len Goodman compared her routine to an “all you can eat buffet of fun and entertainment,” while Bruno Tonioli said the mercurial TV beauty was just “scratching the surface of her potential.” “Half of dancing is about your personality, so you definitely brought that,” Carrie Ann Inaba told the feisty reality star, who welled up after her successful start.
After receiving 7s across the board, a humble Leakes said of her scores: “I think it’s great, I’m honored so much, thank you.”
Every season since beloved frenemies Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin left Real Housewives of New York,
we’ve heard rumors that one or both of them would return.
Unfortunately, these little tidbits are usually dreamed up in some
wishful thinker’s head, and are thus proven to be false. But just one
week after the premiere of the sixth season of the Bravo reality show,
we’re hearing the buzz again — and this time from a reputable source: RHoNY star Aviva Drescher!
Manhattan ladies have been making the media rounds over the last few
weeks, and though the drama is just starting to roll out on-screen, we
can already see where the rifts have happened behind-the-scenes. In
particular, Aviva’s fellow Season 5 starters Heather Thomson and Carole
Radziwill have some real issues with the “leggy blonde” after she
perpetuated a rumor that Carole used a ghostwriter for her novel, The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating.
not sure if Aviva is just lashing back at her sparring partners with
more rumors, but she sure does sound confident in her prediction that 1)
Carole and Heather are being ousted next season, and 2) Bethenny and
Jill are taking their places!
“I heard they’re going to replace Heather and Carole,” Aviva revealed on VH1’s The Gossip Table
on Tuesday, March 18. She also didn’t miss a chance to pepper in a
little shade, adding, “Heather and Carole are trying to be like Ramona
and Sonja… NOT! I heard that Jill and Bethenny might come back and boot
them off the show.”
