Lizzie Rovsek’s Leaked Texts About Tamra Barney, Says Tamra Lied About Why She Couldn't Attend B-Day Party
Yesterday, Tamra Barney attempted to save face with The Real Housewives of Orange County fans by writing a lengthy Facebook post defending her actions in the previous night's episode.

Essentially, Tamra claimed producers on the show convinced her to ditch Lizzie Rovsek's birthday party at the last minute without providing any details.
Barney says her daughter was ill and she'd intended to give Lizzie plenty of advance notice, but Bravo wanted the drama of a last-minute flake-out.

Today, Radar Online has obtained texts sent from Lizzie to Tamra revealing that Rovsek thinks Barney skipped the celebration because she felt like it.

Worse, Tamra stands accused of convincing fellow cast member Vicki Gunvalson to fake a yeast infection in order to giver her an excuse to stay home.

"I honestly wouldn't have cared if you just didn't want to go," Lizzie texted. "The general vibe I got from everyone, producers included, was that you just didn't want to be there."

Then Lizzie pulls out the big guns, and accuses Tamra of a totally gross violation of girl code:

"The whole yeast infection thing you told Vivki to tell producers wasn't very nice."

Not very nice, indeed. Did she have to go with such a TMI excuse? It was already bad enough that Tamra told everyone about her bedroom quirks.

Ramona Singer Says She Thought LuAnn de Lesseps Was a Drag Queen When They First Met
It was only the first of a three-part reunion for the ladies of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and things were already getting crazy. When LuAnn de Lesseps’ unflattering nickname, “LuMan,” came up, Ramona Singer revealed that she genuinely thought de Lesseps was a drag queen when she first met her, because there were a lot of gay people around.

“If I didn't love drag queens so much, I would be offended,” de Lesseps said in response. She had thought only Sonja Morgan had used the nickname, but video footage showed Singer using it as well to refer to her.

Morgan was the primary target of the night, though, with some left over for Aviva Drescher, who notoriously threw her prosthetic leg in last week's season finale. Morgan was called “delusional” by virtually every other housewife, save Drescher, at one point or another during the hour.

When Morgan claimed that her husband worked for P. Diddy and had Diddy on her yacht as a guest, they jumped on her to remind her that she doesn't have a yacht right now. Kristen Taekman got so worked up that she jumped up and started singing, “Delusional.”

Drescher tried to jump to Morgan's defense, only to get knocked back herself. When the group started talking about Sonja's claims that she'd slept with Carole Radziwell's boyfriend, Russ, Aviva said, “Carole and Russ had an open relationship.”

Radziwell shut her down immediately, denying the claim and calling her “ridiculous.”

Next week, it looks like Singer goes on the defensive when Andy Cohen asks about her ex-husband Mario. She gets indignant that he would even ask about her personal life in this way, while he reminds her that she's the one who chose to put her personal and sex life on television in a reality show, making the query fair game.

Tamra Barney Deletes Facebook Account; Did Bravo Really Fire Her?!?

Another reminder to never bite the hand that feeds you:
She’s outta here! Only hours after broke the world exclusive news that Bravo-bashing Tamra Barney Judge will not be returning for the next season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the reality TV star abruptly deleted her Facebook profile and left the country!

Though Judge posted nearly daily on her Facebook page in weeks past, all links from her Twitter to the page came up as dead links roughly one hour after Radar’s post. By then, Radar has learned, she was already on vacation in Mexico.

“One more day till paradise,” she tweeted on July 29. “I’m so over the stress of the show and what it’s doing to my spirit.”

Earlier this week, she called out Bravo on the Facebook account for editing scenes to make her look like she had flaked on co-star Lizzie Rovsek’s birthday party.

According to the mother of four, she alerted producers in advance that her daughter was sick and she would be unable to make the soiree, but seemingly desperate for drama, they forced Judge to wait until the last minute to let her co-star know.

“They asked me to wait until the cameras were up in the limo to let Lizzie know,” Judge alleged. “Then they had her call me and say ‘How rude that you didn’t call me.’”

That post was the last straw for Bravo, Radar has reported. According to insiders, the network has had it with her diva behavior, and she won’t be returning for the next season of RHOC.

However, she hasn’t deleted her Twitter profile — yet.

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub will probably get the cold shoulder the next time she shops at Nordstrom ... because she just screwed them over in bankruptcy court ... and she royally screwed the guy in her sex tape in the unforgettable onion bagel scene.

Staub got a sweet deal in bankruptcy court, excusing more than $200,000 in debt.  Among those who are saying bye bye to their money ... Sex tape partner Stephen Zalewski won't get $100K from his defamation lawsuit against her.

In addition to Nordstrom, which is out more than $7K ... Ford is saying bye bye to $3K, American Express is out more than $7K. and her lawyers are out more than $30K ... but no one feels sorry for them.

Finally for Danielle ... a clean discharge.

Tamra Barney Slams Vicki Gunvalson For Badmouthing Her
Tamra Barney was not only angry with Bravo producers after last night’s dramatic episode of Real Housewives of Orange County— she’s livid with her longtime costar and friend, Vicki Gunvalson.

The CUT Fitness owner, 46, slammed Gunvalson, 52, for chumming up to costar Lizzie Rosvek at her 34th bash but badmouthing the birthday girl behind her back.

“Vicki was pissed that she had to go alone! She told me she did NOT want to hang out with Dumb and Dumber (referring to Lizz[ie] and Danielle [Gregorio]),” Barney posted on her Facebook page last night.  
“She asked me how she could get out of going. I jokingly said, ‘tell production you have a yeast infection, its not like anyone is going to check.’ Vicki had No REAL reason not to go and ended up going I jokingly said, ‘tell production you have a yeast infection, its not like anyone is going to check.’ Vicki had No REAL reason not to go and ended up going ……2 hours late.”

While the mother of four was angry, Gunvalson acted two-faced about Rosvek on camera, she was even more upset that her old friend trashed her in the process.

In one scene, Gulvalson tells Rosvek that Barney actually wanted to ditch the party. (Barney previously explained to Rosvek that her daughter was sick.)

“I never told Vicki I did not want to go to the party,” Barney claimed. “But I did tell her that we don’t usually go out when we have the kids, and I did not feel right going to LA in [a] party bus even if my daughter wasn’t sick.”

Barney also called out her former bestie for claiming she was responsible for Gunvalson’s controversial on-off boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ bad reputation.

“No Brooks ruined his own reputation when he was recorded by your son n law calling you names and saying you needed to be beat,” Barney seethed.

Lizzie Rovsek Has a Very Sad Birthday
It wasn't a happy birthday for Lizzie Rovsek on Monday's The Real Housewives of Orange County, as almost no one showed up to help her celebrate.

"I'm psyched. It's my birthday! Go, Lizzie. It's your birthday," Rovsek happily sang as she boarded a party limousine before everyone started calling to cancel, citing colds and sick kids. "I don't think I've ever had a birthday party where no one showed up," she said.

Well, Vicki Gunvalson did.

"I knew you wouldn't let me down!" said Rovsek.

"Who's your BFF this day?" Gunvalson asked, clinking champagne glasses before giving a hearty "Woo-hoo!" once they made it to the restaurant in Los Angeles. "Thank God I'm here, or you'd be sitting here by yourself."

But Rovsek may have wished she had been after overhearing Gunvalson telling boyfriend Brooks, before boarding the limo, "I can't believe I have to hang out with dumb and dumber," referring to the party girl and her friend Danielle Gregorio.

Tamra Barney probably wished she had been there, too – to defend herself.

The icing on Rovsek's unhappy birthday cake was Gunvalson talking nonstop about Barney's recent history of stirring the pot – from telling Shannon Beador that the Dubrows wanted to take the Beadors down to telling everyone to be wary of Brooks

"Being friends with Tamra is complicated," Gunvalson told Rovsek. "So, if you are, be prepared to get hurt."

Nicole Napolitano & Teresa Aprea Call Amber Marchese A 'Liar' and a 'Manipulator'
Amber Marchese is not making many friends in her early going on The Real Housewives of New Jersey

The Colts Neck, New Jersey beauty came into the cross-hairs of twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano in their appearance on Watch What Happens Live Sunday, rebutting and responding to various claims made by their castmate in the chat-fest with Andy Cohen

As we previously reported, Amber raised eyebrows telling Melissa Gorga that Nicole cheated on her husband and “broke up a family” as result of her infidelities. 

Nicole brushed off the snide remarks as a desperate volley for airtime, saying, “Amber just likes attention and if she’s gonna get it by making up lies and stories, so be it.”

Teresa added that in response, they “were going to confront Amber, but out of the decency for her children,” they took a step back.  

One contentious area of discussion came to Amber’s health, as she’s a noted breast cancer survivor who underwent a double mastectomy as part of her treatment. 

When a viewer asked the twins if they thought Amber was milking her past struggles for sympathy, Nicole agreed, and pointed out shocking words she overheard Amber saying.

“I wish they would’ve shown more of the footage of her saying ‘I’m gonna use the cancer card’ or ‘THE cancer,’” she said. “I don’t know anyone who says that” 

Teresa said it’s a “very sensitive issue . . . but for her to just come out constantly” and talk about it is over-the-top.

Tamra & Eddie Judge Only Discussed Having Kids For Storylines Purposes
Tamra and Eddie Judge pretend to be a content couple on Real Housewives of Orange County, but when it comes to their desire to build a family together, has learned, they’re faking it! Despite an ongoing storyline on the Bravo show about Tamra’s desire to have a baby with Eddie, sources tell Radar her newly awakened maternal instinct is complete BS — and she is physically incapable of giving birth again anyways!

Tamra, 46, “doesn’t want another baby, no way,” an insider said. “It’s all for a storyline for the show. Tamra doesn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night for feedings and diaper changes! It’s the last thing that she wants.

“After Eddie and Tamra had been dating for a few months, he actually asked her how she felt about having more kids,” the source said. “At that point, Eddie very much wanted to have kids with her. However, that is no longer the case. Even if Tamra could have kids — which she can’t, because she had her tubes tied several years ago — Eddie doesn’t want that added responsibility.”
Meanwhile, Tamra is fighting her ex-husband Simon Barney in court for custody of her three kids with him: Sidney, 15, Sophia, 8, and Spencer, 13, as Radar has extensively reported.

Brandi Glanville Turns Being A Lush Into Business Venture
Brandi Glanville doesn’t keep her love of wine a secret while filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, Brandi has gotten drunk while filming and viewers have been very harsh with her, as she is the single mother of two children. But Brandi doesn’t drink when she hangs out with her boys. They don’t film the show with her thanks to her ex-husband’s demands, something Glanville is very upset about.

Brandi has long been known as the troubled drinker and there have been various reports about her needing rehab. But rather than listen to her skeptics, Glanville is now getting creative with her image. Rather than continue to drink and party, Brandi is thinking about how she can make money from her love of alcohol. Brandi Glanville, the reality star, is becoming a business woman.

According to a new Bravo report, Brandi Glanville is working on a new line of wines. However, she doesn’t have a catchy name for her product line just yet. Apparently, “Brandi Glanville Wines” in itself is not a good name. “I cannot come up with anything I love!” she revealed on Twitter. Fans of hers have suggested names such as Brandonnay or Glamville.

Of course, Brandi Glanville is also known as the bestselling author of Drinking & Tweeting and its sequel Drinking & Dating. Wine isn’t just something that she decided to do, even though many other housewives have created alcoholic beverages and wine products before her. Given her love for wine, this new alcoholic line makes sense for her.
While Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson didn’t create their own line of wines on The Real Housewives of Orange County, they did create a club, where they sampled different kinds of wines. Brandi’s former best friend, Lisa Vanderpump, has also launched her own wine.

Teresa Giudice was the first to launch her own line of drinks among her friends on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and she followed Bethenny Frankel, who was the first to launch her Skinnygirl Cocktails a few years back, while filming the third season of The Real Housewives of New York.

But Brandi may not get too much support from her fellow housewives. Even though she has been filming the show, Glanville is still feuding with her former best friend, Lisa, and she has been trying to resolve her issues with former housewife, Adrienne Maloof, as discussed here at The Inquisitr.

It is possible that Adrienne will return to the show in some format, whether as a full housewife or as a friend of the housewives. Adrienne infamously divorced her husband while filming the show. The divorce came out of nowhere, but carried allegations of domestic abuse. Glanville was told she was at fault for Adrienne’s divorce from Paul Nassif.

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Ratings Continue To Plummet, Lowest Viewership Ever!
Hot on the trail of their lowest season premiere episode ever, ratings for the Real Housewives of New Jersey continue to plummet as the ladies brought in their lowest viewership ever for a single episode last Sunday, is exclusively reporting. 

Season 6 — featuring fan favorites Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo and newbies Teresa Aprea, Nicole Napolitano and Amber Marchese — debuted on July 13 only bringing in 2.1 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic, and slipped a whopping 500,000 viewers the next week. 

Titled O, Christmas Tre, the season’s second episode aired on July 20 and only brought in 1.6 million viewers, the New Jersey franchise’s lowest ratings ever. 

The low ratings come just one day after Radar exclusively reported that Bravo nixed Giudice, 42, from Sunday night’s appearance on Andy Cohen‘s Watch What Happens Live and replaced with Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie Pierri.

“Teresa was notified by Bravo on Friday that her appearance on Sunday’s show was being canceled,” a Bravo insider told Radar

“No official reason was given, but the network has been upset with Teresa for not doing as many promotional appearances for The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

Giudice is reportedly on the chopping block with Bravo, with network execs questioning whether she’s worth her $700,000 salary.

In fact, she’s being largely blamed for the show’s failed ratings.

“Bravo bosses are starting to think that Teresa just isn’t worth keeping around if her diva behavior continues. 

The network is very sensitive to the fact that she is facing a looming prison sentence, and has tried to work with her during this difficult time,” an insider told Radar. 

“Teresa should start treating the producers and network executives with dignity and respect. They don’t have the time nor patience to deal with her temper tantrums. Teresa should recognize her only source of income is from the show.”

Bravo Edits Footage Of Amber Marchese's Husband Threatening Teresa Giudice's Brother Joe
Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Amber Marchese‘s husband, Jim, appeared to threaten Melissa Gorga‘s husband, Joe, in a preview clip of Season 6 in connection with Teresa Giudice‘s legal problems. 

However, is exclusively reporting that Bravo edited the footage to make Jim look like the villain, when he was actually trying to help the Giudices.

Amber’s hubby bragged in a preview clip about his ties to the “Attorney General that is prosecuting” to Teresa’s brother, Joe, in a heated confrontation. 

Jim made the claims in a recently released promo clip for the show, where he is shown telling Teresa’s brother in a menacing and threatening tone, “I work with the same f**king attorney general that is prosecuting your brother, you dumbf**k.”

Sources connected to the situation tell us, “Amber and Jim arrived at the party, which was to benefit first responders. Everyone was drunk and loud.

“Jim just wanted to leave, and on his way out, Joe (Gorga), told him to stay and party. Feeling uncomfortable because Jim is actually assisting the Department of Justice in a separate criminal investigation in which his company is an alleged victim. Jim tried to tell Joe that staying could place Teresa and and husband, Joe, in a precarious situation because at that time, their case was still pending.”

The source continued, “It could have been a very bad for Jim and the Giudices to put himself in that position because he didn’t want to be drawn into the ongoing legal issues facing Joe and Teresa. He tried to explain that to Joe Gorga, but he just didn’t understand it, so Jim used the term Attorney General to try and get it thru his head.

The Department of Justice “District of New Jersey” that is prosecuting a case for Jim’s company and is also working on Joe Giudice’s matter.

Discussions between Joe Gorga, Joe Giudice and Jim could have placed them all in legal jeopardy.
Joe and Teresa are scheduled to sentenced on fraud and bankruptcy charges in September. 

Counters another insider, “Any fool can understand the gravity of the situation and that Jim was trying to avoid a potential harm for all. He has the utmost respect for Teresa and Joe, and wants them to be treated fairly in court.”
