Bethenny Frankel Begs Judge To Seal Top-Secret Emails In Liquor Lawsuit
Does Bethenny Frankel have something to hide? has exclusively learned that The Real Housewives of New York City star has asked a federal judge to keep secret a collection of e-mails filed as evidence in the lawsuit against her liquor brand — because they would reveal her confidential public relations strategy.

An Illinois woman is suing the former Real Housewives of New York City star, claiming Frankel’s Skinnygirl Margarita was not all-natural as advertised, because it allegedly contained food preservatives.

The class action lawsuit suffered a major setback when a federal judge ruled last month that there was no way to determine who bought the products and how much they paid for the liquor, but the plaintiffs recently filed new documents — which included the e-mails Frankel wants the court to seal from public view — to convince the judge to change his mind.

“A small collection of email communications and documents attached to those emails” are “confidential business strategy communications” that include “discussions of public relations strategy with Bethenny Frankel, draft public relations statements, and discussions of possible alternative product formulations and ingredients,” Frankel’s new court filing, obtained by Radar, says.

Frankel also wants the judge to seal the transcript of a deposition she gave in a related case, the filing says.

The judge has not ruled on Frankel’s request.

Cynthia Bailey: Porsha’s Behavior Is ‘Extremely Irritating And Actually Offensive’
Who knew that a little lunch could cause so much chaos?

After Porsha Williams slammed Cynthia Bailey on Twitter for claiming she slept with a married man “for cars and bags,” the 46-year-old model took to her Bravo blog to call out the recurring Housewife for her excessive tardiness.

“I feel an ongoing issue in this group of ladies is the blatant disrespect for people’s time,” Bailey wrote on November 26. “It is just rude and inappropriate.”

Williams arrived an hour late to their lunch meeting on last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, which led Baily to immediately demand an apology. But the NFL ex-wife, 33, wasn’t willing to give one.

“It also says a lot about a person to have no regard for another person’s time (no call or text) and feel no need to apologize. I find this behavior extremely irritating and actually offensive,” Bailey huffed on her blog.

The Bailey Agency CEO said she wished she had kept her cool— and had walked out the door 45 minutes earlier.

“My mistake was not leaving after the customary 15 minute grace period,” she wrote.

Williams originally scheduled the lunch to hash out their differences, but now the former friends are in an even worse spot.

Andy Cohen Says Teresa and Joe Giudice Were the Most Difficult Subjects to Interview
It took no hesitation for Andy Cohen to name his most difficult interview subjects.

"That Teresa and Joe [Giudice] interview was no piece of cake," said the Watch What Happens Live host when the question was put before him during a fan Q&A at the Gilt City Miami launch party at Villa Azur for the just-published The Andy Cohen Diaries, now at the top of Apple's top paid iBook list.

"They're not the most reflective people I've met," he said. "I'm not throwing shade, but they're not reflective and introspective."

In spite of the couple's status as interview subjects, when it comes to Teresa's possible return to Real Housewives of New Jersey after she serves out her 15-month jail sentence, Cohen enthusiastically stated, "I hope so!"

Elsewhere in the realm of Housewives, specifically how the Real Housewives of New York cast is handling the return to the show of the controversial Bethenny Frankel – who feuded on-air with Jill Zarin and LuAnn de Lesseps – Cohen said, "I think that they think it's good for the show, and they all have their own opinions about her personally, so we'll see how they play out on the show.

"They've expressed to me their excitement, nerves I think they would be expressing to each other."

Asked about any Housewife lobbying to get Zarin back on the show, Cohen said, "Yes! There is!"

But wait, there's more. Insofar as which celebrity he'd love to see on the show, he said, "Beyoncé! She'd be great." And, should there ever be an all-star Housewives cast, he'd like to see "Nene [Leakes], Teresa [Giudice], [Lisa] Vanderpump, Bethenny [Frankel], Adriana [de Moura] and [Vicki] Gunvalson."

Phaedra Parks Slams ‘Unbecoming’ & ‘Elder’-ly Cynthia Bailey In Latest Round Of ‘RHOA’ Feud
Phaedra Parks is focusing on being a single mom to her two sons now that Apollo Nida has started his eight-year prison sentence . But has learned she still has time for drama! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star slammed fellow housewife Cynthia Bailey in a bitter new Bravo blog, and Radar has all the details.

“While our show is about a group of women who socialize together, socializing does not equate to true friendship,” Parks, 43, began in the post. “True friends delight in the building up of one another rather than bashing each other.”

But after calling out Porsha Williams’ “sweetness,” NeNe Leakes’ “support and advice,” and Kandi Burruss’ “steadfast friendship,” she turned her sights on Bailey, 46.

“I have always thought of Cynthia as a nice person, but her behavior last night was unbecoming,” she wrote.
As Radar reported, on Sunday’s episode, Bailey slammed Williams for allegedly sleeping with “old married men,” a charge Williams finds amusing, according to insiders.

“Porsha was late and I understand Cynthia’s frustration,” Parks wrote. “However, as Porsha’s elder, Cynthia should be setting an example. None of us are perfect, but we can all strive to be better.”

Bailey’s “behavior last night was unbecoming,” Parks sniffed.

‘Negative Forces’ At Work?: Teresa Giudice Blames ‘RHONJ’ Co-Stars For Failure Of Daughter’s Girl Band
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is on hiatus, but Teresa Giudice is still stirring up drama with her co-stars off-screen. has learned that she is secretly blaming her co-stars — and Internet “haters” — for the lackluster response to fundraising efforts for her daughter’s girl band.

As Radar reported, Teresa’s daughter, Gia, 13, started an online fundraiser to raise money for a holiday video by her band, 3KT. So far, it has raised only $901, of a $7,500 goal.

“Teresa believes there are negative forces, including co-stars from RHONJ, that are the reason why Gia’s music video fundraising efforts have been a failure so far. Teresa says there are haters that are determined to make sure Gia’s music career goes down in flames,” a source told Radar.

Gia’s girl band, 3KT, recently launched a Kickstarter campaign and said, ” “3KT loves our fans! We want to give you an awesome original Christmas music video in time for the holiday! Join us!

“WE LOVE OUR FANS! We are still so overwhelmed by the buzz and support over our first music video cover ‘Circus’ (originally by Britney Spears WHO WE ADORE!). So many of you had amazing words of support for us on our new journey. We were born to perform and entertain, and we are so lucky to be able to do this in such a big way. We want to empower and inspire other young performers to FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND NEVER GIVE UP!”

Despite drowning in $13.5 million in debt before filing for bankruptcy, and thousands in restitution for her fraud case looming, Teresa recently forked out $10,000 for her daughter, Gia‘s music video — against her husband Joe‘s orders.

Gia recently shot the video covering Britney Spears’ song “Circus” with her fellow band members Alex Maetta, 16, and Cristianna Cardinale, 14.

The aspiring singers’ first music video premiered on Halloween. Wearing very heavy eye makeup and risqué clothing, the girls looked “as though they are in their early twenties!” a source previously told Radar.

“Teenagers, especially, a 13-year-old should never be wearing a leather bustier,” the source previously said. “What kind of message does this send to other girls their age?”

Funny Thot Brandi Glanville Now Blames Bravo For Making Her Look Worse Than She Actually Is
Brandi Glanville is widely known as the chief pot stirrer on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Although she has plenty of regrets about her often atrocious behavior, she also thinks that Bravo has unfairly transformed her into a villain. In fact, during a recent interview, the reality star went so far as to accuse the network of adding sound effects to her memorable attack on Lisa Vanderpump.

Is Brandi Glanville really as awful as she seems on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? She certainly possesses a biting tone on Twitter — to the point that followers assume she is every bit as mean-spirited in real life as she is on television. But the celeb thinks that she has frequently been the victim of bad editing. In a recent interview with TooFab, Brandi dished on her latest altercation with Lisa Vanderpump, explaining, “I swear they added a sound effect to it! I might have been there and I don’t think it was like that.”

This is by no means the first time Brandi has complained about Bravo’s editing. Last year, she ranted about the issue on Facebook, accusing the network of shooting “pick-up scenes after the show has wrapped so that certain story lines make sense.”

To Brandi’s credit, Bravo is known for it liberal use of editing, which makes several housewives look far more petty than they actually are. That being said, the editors must work with the material gathered during the filming process. Brandi definitely slapped Lisa and she has most certainly said awful things about her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills cast members. Thus, her status as RHOBH villain is deserved. Do you agree? Sound off in the comments section below!
Right. You're a vile, nasty, racist wench by the name of Brandi Glanville, who has happened to have had fights with just about EVERYONE on the RHOBH cast, past and present, at one point or another and now it's Bravo's fault for making you look worse than you actually are. Right

Cynthia Bailey Talks Season 7 of RHOA, Friendship with NeNe Leakes and Apollo Nida’s Arrest
For Cynthia Bailey, season 7 of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta (premiering this Sunday) is a chance for viewers to see the more outspoken side of her. “I feel like I'm just at the point where I don't have the patience that I used to,” she tells We spoke to the model and reality star about why she still gets jitters before each season premiere, the state of her friendship with NeNe Leakes, and why she feels bad for Apollo Nida.

Do you still get jitters before each season starts?
You know what? This is my fifth year and I still do get the jitters especially this season. It's going to be a little bit different for me. In the previous season, I had my crew, and now things have changed and you guys will see that. New friends. That's definitely a big change for me going into the new season.

What about that gives you the jitters?
Well, I think that people get really attached to seeing the relationships and friendships. When the dynamics of the relationship changes some people are going to like it and some people aren’t going to like it. I always get the, ‘Aw, I wish you guys were friends are again,’ or the ‘Thank God you guys aren’t friends.’ It's just always interesting to just see how things play out on the show.

From the first episode we can see you are way more outspoken.
This is the thing; I've never been a pushover. I've always tried to take the high road in situations. Let’s just say I don't always do that this season. I felt like sometimes taking the high road does not always work for this group. I'm definitely a little more outspoken. I'm tired. Tired. I feel like I'm just at the point where I don't have the patience that I used to and it either is just working for me or it's not working for me and if it's not then I don't have any problems saying, ‘This situation is not working for me anymore.’

Has your relationship with NeNe been repaired since the reunion? Do you care to repair it?
Toward the beginning of this season I was very hurt by some of the things that happened toward the end of our friendship. Despite it all I'm still optimistic that we could at least just be cool, cordial, and still have fun together. Not be besties, but just have that respect for each other as women and just agree to just coexist.

Were the cameras not rolling and were this not part of a story line on a reality show, do you think this is a friendship that you would have fought this hard for?
Like I said at the reunion, you just come to the end of the road with people. I think that we just ... I don’t know. I don't want to say we outgrew each other. I don’t know what the right word is, but basically we just kind of came to the end of the road. Obviously, NeNe is not the only friend I've ever had in my life. I've had other girlfriends in my life and sometimes you go through things together and you don't really recover from them, and it's not even a bad thing. Sometimes it's okay to move on past friendships.

What do you think when I say Phaedra and Apollo?
I think there's a lot when it comes to Phaedra and Apollo. I guess the first thing that comes to mind is ‘complicated.’ There’s so much you just don't know about that relationship. I just don't understand a lot of it. So, I would say complicated.

Were you following his trial and sentencing?
Peter definitely followed it probably closer than I did. But, being cast mates with Apollo, I think we were all pretty much abreast to the occurrences of everything that was happening all the way up until he went in.

I'm sure you were just as shocked as the rest of the world.
I actually felt really bad. I felt really bad for him. It was just an unfortunate situation especially with him being incarcerated before. But, he did the crime and he's doing his time. He's a young guy, hopefully when he comes out he will be able to really turn his life around in a positive direction.

You and Peter seem to be in a really good space this season.
We are in a good space. One of the things that you guys always get to see between my husband and I is our real relationship. It's a real marriage. We have real issues and we're real people. We're at a great time in our life right now. It’s been four years; the marriage is settled in and I think we really understand each other. We don't expect our life to be perfect and I'm able to roll with the punches a little better than I was before as a newlywed

At one point you say not being friends with NeNe was better for your relationship with Peter. How?
I had put a lot of energy into my friendship with NeNe and I think what ended up happening for me—and I'm speaking for me on my side of the friendship—some of the energy that I was pouring into my friendship with her I should have been pouring into my marriage. Some friends are just needier than others, and I'm not trying to say anything bad about NeNe. I'm just saying I put a lot of energy into that relationship. And, I felt like once that relationship went away I had all this time to pour into my life and my husband and my kid. 
I really like the "new" Cynthia and Porsha knows damn well that she wrong for being so late and coming off like a witch at that sit-down with Cynthia.

Caroline Manzo Reportedly Returning to 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Once Teresa Giudice Goes To Prison
We recently told you that Bravo was working hard to try and strike a deal with Caroline Manzo to bring her back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She opted out of filming the most recent season of the show, so the producers brought in a trio of new ladies who did not click with the audience. Midway through the season, they brought Jacqueline Laurita back in a desperate attempt to get former fans to tune back in. They have realized that for the show to have any chance of bringing in decent numbers, they need a favorite like Manzo back in the fold.
Teresa Giudice used to be the glue that held RHONJ together, and viewers loved the havoc she wrecked in nearly episode. There seems to be a huge difference between lying about her sister-in-law's activities and bilking people out of millions, and once it was confirmed that Giudice is a criminal, her fans became few and far between.

Bravo also has to try and clean up the reputation of the show because Giudice is headed to prison, Laurita's tax evasion has been catching headlines and Joe and Melissa Gorga's business dealings are always questionable. Part of what makes Manzo so popular is that she comes across as the hardworking, Italian mother, something that is respected.

According to The Hollywood Lifeit looks like Manzo is a sure bet to return to the show for Season 7, especially once Giudice is in jail and the rest of the ladies are in one way or another affected by her absence.

Why NeNe Leakes May Leave ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ for Broadway
In the intro to season 5 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” NeNe Leakes proclaimed, “I have arrived, and the spotlight is on me, honey!”

With the larger-than-life reality star’s splashy debut on Broadway this week, that’s now quite literally true.

Leakes, 46, joins the cast of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” on Tuesday. Opposite Keke Palmer in the title role, Leakes will play Madame, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, for the show’s final leg before it closes Jan. 3.

It’s not the first turn with scripted drama for the “Housewife.” She’s starred in “Glee” and “The New Normal” and also performed in Vegas’ Cirque du Soleil show “Zumanity” earlier this year as the “Mistress of Sensuality.”

Those roles led to interest in her, she says, from the Broadway show “Chicago” and “Rock of Ages,” but after seeing Fran Drescher perform in the stepmother role, she knew “Cinderella” was the right fit.

Leakes, who is currently remarried to her husband Gregg after divorcing him in 2011, will take the role over from former “The View” host Sherri Shepherd, and she’s already working to make her stepmother stand out from the pack.

“You know, I’m bringing a little NeNe,” she tells The Post. “I’m a lot bigger in my delivery than some of the past stepmoms, [and] I’m probably more dramatic. I’ve been a ‘Housewife’ for forever, so…”

She trails off — the drama of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” speaks for itself.

The seventh season of the series — which airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. and broke the record two weeks ago for Bravo’s highest-rated season premiere ever, with 3.8 million viewers — will follow Leakes on her road to Broadway.

They’re still filming, and the season will wrap with her first bow on the Great White Way.

Jacqueline and Husband Chris Laurita Get Reprieve In Bankruptcy Trial As Judge Approves Extension
At last, some good legal news for a Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member! has learned that Jacqueline and Chris Laurita have been given a last-minute reprieve in their looming bankruptcy trial, as the judge has approved an extension request filed by the trustee overseeing the proceedings.

The couple had been accused of misusing millions in funds from their former clothing company.

They allegedly siphoned off millions from the company, Signature Apparel, and used the cash to support their lavish lifestyle — even though they knew the business was failing.

The couple previously reached an agreement to end the $8 million flap, but the trustee asked for a extension of the case to determine how the funds from that settlement will be distributed.

The judge agreed and granted the extension until January 30, 2015.

Kim Richards Lawsuit Gets Ugly, Dog Victim Says ‘I Don’t Believe’ She Gave Pitbull To Trainer For Good
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards announced this week that she had handed her pitbull Kingsley over to a trainer after it violently attacked her “second mother,” 80-year-old Kay Rozario. But in an exclusive statement to, Rozario claims she believes Richards’ statement was just a PR ploy — because she knows an “ugly” lawsuit is headed her way!

“I don’t believe it,” Rozario told Radar. “If she gave the dog to a trainer, Kim is intending to get the dog back in the future.”

According to another source, Rozario “does not buy Kim’s sympathy plea. Kim knows there is a lawsuit coming her way, and this is about to get real ugly.”

Rozario first went public with her claims on November 7, when her attorney Bill Zuhdi told Radar exclusively, “I represent [alleged victim] Kay Rozario and she was attacked by Kim Richards’ dog on March 20, 2014, at Kim Richards’ residence. Mrs. Rozario was severely injured from the unprovoked attack of the dog … I have prepared a lawsuit and will be filing the suit [soon].”

Rozario added at the time, “Kim contacted me four months later. She never offered to pay my medical bills. She did nothing. I said to her, ‘You have to get rid of this dog.’ She said, ‘No, I can’t. He is my best friend and I love him.’”

That same day, following news of the suit, Richards, 50, released a statement saying that she “was shocked” that her “lifelong family friend” was “bringing suit against her.”

“I was shocked to learn that lifelong family friend Kay Rozario is bringing suit against me for an incident that took place in March,” the RHOBH star said. “Mrs. Rozario has long played an important part in my life and is someone that I have looked at as a second mother. When the bite occurred I offered immediately to handle any and all costs associated with the hospital visit but was told that would not be necessary and there was nothing she needed me to do because insurance covered all costs. Her details of what happened that morning are vehemently not true, she walked into my bedroom the next morning reaching across Kingsley towards me and Kingsley went after her. She was fully aware that I had a dog before she came to town and saw him upon her arrival. In the past Mrs. Rozario has sold multiple stories involving my family and myself and was paid for her participation in a book about my family. This event took place on the morning of the first time I saw her in over 10 years after a reconciliation for her part in the book. It’s unfortunate how people can go against decades of friendship when something like this happens and make their rounds to the media for money.”

As Radar previously reported, Rozario’s claims came after the attack on Richard’s neice, Kyle Richards’ 18-year-old daughter Alexia Umansky. Following that incident, the reality star released a statement that that said, “At this point I am looking at options to what the next step is for Kingsley. As many of you can relate, he is my best friend. This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first.”

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Likely To Be in Limbo Until Teresa Giudice Gets Out of Prison
The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is going to jail along with Teresa Giudice.

A source close to the production tells Confidenti@l that Bravo expects to shelve the hit show until the future Jersey jailbirdgets out of the slammer.

While other members of the cast have been anxiously waiting for seventh-season contracts to drop on their doorsteps, a network insider tells us that “there is zero moving forward anytime soon for ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ ”

“If we’re doing a season seven, Teresa will be part of it,” the source says. “We would shoot it when she’s out of jail.”

With the disgraced reality star set to report to federal prison in Danbury, Conn., for 15 months starting Jan. 5, it could be spring 2016 before Giudice is back in front of the cameras. However, Bravo insiders are not expecting the mother of four, who pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud, to serve her full term.

“The season for ‘Housewives’ is not consistent in the way that the other shows are, like ‘OK, episode one is always Jan. 1’ or whatever,” explained the insider, “ ‘Real Housewives of New York’ missed an entire year before we brought it back. It’s not that we have to do it within a certain amount of time. We do it when we know it’s right and when we want to do it.”

“The network has not made any decision on how we’re moving forward with (‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’),” the source added. “We have nothing going forward, we have no (footage) in the can, nothing that we’re shooting right now.

“We’re completely figuring out what to do with the show. We can’t really figure it out until we see what’s going to happen with her and the rest of the cast,” added the source, who insisted that Bravo doesn’t plan to shoot scenes with Giudice before she dons her orange jumpsuit.

Kyle Richards On Lisa Rinna: ‘Brushing It Under The Carpet Is A Temporary Solution’
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards questioned her friendship with Lisa Vanderpump on the reunion special last year, after she learned that Lisa had possibly tried to put some tabloid magazines in Brandi Glanville’s bag regarding Richards’ husband’s supposed affair. Kyle was hurt and confused, as she thought that Lisa was her friend.

Kyle Richards may have been even more confused, as Vanderpump had been caught saying rude and harsh things about Kyle and her husband. On The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump had joked that people just had to list their home with Mauricio Umansky, and Kyle would become a great friend. She hinted that Richards was all about the professional relationships.

According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards may have forgotten those nasty comments when she met up with her former friend for lunch on the premiere episode of this new season. She wanted to work things out.

“Lisa and I picked up where we left off last year. I reached out to Lisa and asked her to meet with me. Lisa and I had always been close. In the past couple of years, we have had our moments and a lot of obstacles to work through. However, life is too short, and I wanted to talk it out and be able to start from scratch,” Richards reveals.
Richards also points out that she does miss her friend, even though comments were made that she doesn’t necessarily agree with. But during their lunch, Kyle didn’t bring up the comments that were made behind her back. Perhaps, she doesn’t want to deal with the confrontation.

“I missed the days of us just laughing and having fun. I wanted to get to a strong enough place where we wouldn’t go backwards again or let outside negativity influence our friendship. I think that in order to do that you have to have these conversations. Brushing it under the carpet and just “moving on” is always a temporary solution,” Richards explains, hinting that this makeup is only temporary between them.

Dina Manzo Caught Playing With Sex Toys, On Camera Asking For Threesome In Secret ‘RHONJ’ Footage
Is Dina Manzo too hot for TV? Bravo initially did not want viewers to see a raunchy sex scene starring Caroline Manzo’s younger sis from the Atlantic City trip on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But now, has learned, they’ve changed their minds and decided to expose Manzo’s freaky side on tonight’s final “Secrets Revealed” episode of the show.

“In tonight’s special, Dina is seen shopping for sex toys with the girls,” an insider told Radar. “While there, she picks up a 14-inch dildo … and starts taking selfies with it!”

The source leaked a screenshot of the scene to Radar, below:

That wasn’t the end of her sexual acts in the store, however. “Dina also picks up crotchless underwear and claims that it would be good to cover her piece,” the source said. “In addition, she makes it known to the girls that she will try anything once!”

And according to the source, she proved that in a super-raunchy scene that ended up on the cutting room floor!

“On the Bravo site, there is a scene where Amber and Jim [Marchese] kiss in a limo,” the source explained. “Everone was calling out saying they wanted to see them kiss. What’s not seen on the tape is that Dina says that she wants to watch them make out. And after that, she comments that she wants to participate with them!”

“Was she just joking around? Absolutely not!” the source insisted. “Dina was dead serious about this.”
Finally, in the same wild night, the source claims that Dina said she wanted to be “Teresa Aprea’s date for the evening and joked about wanting to get her ‘date drunk’ so she could get lucky. The moral of the story is that Dina is a freak!”

Radar reached out to Jim Marchese to confirm what the source had described, and he verified that all of these incidents were accurate.

Teresa Giudice's Daughter Gia Seeks Donations for Her 3KT Group Music Video
The show must go on.

At least that's the attitude Gia Giudice is taking when it comes to her burgeoning music career.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice's eldest daughter is taking financial matters into her own hands, asking for online donations to help make her music dreams come true.

Despite the fact that her parents will soon serve time in prison for multiple charges, including bankruptcy fraud, the 13-year-old singer is looking on the bright side.

"Obviously, any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting. But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we'll get through this," she recently told Access Hollywood, adding, "It's going to be fine and when it's over, we're going to be better than ever."

But while the cash-strapped family is dealing with hefty fines and legal fees, Gia isn't putting her music on hold. A member of the group 3KT, the band she started with pals Alexa Maetta, 16, and Christianna Cardinale, 14, Gia and her friends launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their upcoming video.

"3KT love our fans! We want to give you an awesome original Christmas music video in time for the holiday!" reads a message on their Kickstarter page, which seeks to raise $7,500 by Dec. 12.

As for what the parentals think of her pop star aspirations, "My parents think it's fun," Gia told Access Hollywood. "I just want to make them proud."

Cynthia Bailey Slams Porsha Williams: “Keep My Name Out of Your Mouth!”
It’s no surprise Porsha Williams is at odds with Cynthia Bailey, considering she has a “little sis-big sis” relationship with Cynthia’s recent ex-pal, NeNe Leakes, and Cynthia has been hanging out with Porsha’s foe, Kenya Moore. However, the image of these two really getting into it in a sneak peek of the November 23 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta is still quite jarring!
Who knew Cyn had it in her? The supermodel is definitely showing a new, more confrontational side of herself in Season 7, and this clip proves that it’s here to stay. While we’re not sure what exactly prompts the tiff, we can tell that both ladies are riled up. Cynthia — looking like an old timey reporter in a pageboy cap and thick-rimmed glasses — first raises her voice to the recently-demoted Porsha while the two are sharing a meal. 

“You say something crazy about me, I’m gonna say something crazy about you,” she asserts, as Porsha talks over her, “If you aren’t thinking about me, why are you commenting?” To that, Cynthia replies, “You keep my name out your mouth, I’ll keep your name out my mouth,” and Porsha fires back, “That’s very childish.” 

Then, sounding eerily similar to her former Miss USA pal, Cynthia spits, “Do not come for me.” ...Unless I come for you? Isn’t that how it goes?

To be fair, Porsha also reuses a familiar term or two (coined by the aforementioned NeNe). “Flip-flopper, you’re two-faced! Go ahead and turn around so I can see your other face!” Porsha says about her co-star to the Bravo cameras.

Along with that fight over apparent gossip, this Episode 3 will also bring us Kenya’s beloved aunt (and the woman Andy Cohen calls RHoA’s “moral compass”), who tells her it’s “very important to forgive everyone.” Phaedra Parks? NeNe? We can’t wait to find out who will be receiving this forgiveness.

Then we have Porsha and NeNe discussing new Housewife Claudia Jordan — which, of course, turns to some shade-throwing courtesy of NeNe. “The thirst is real,” the soon-to-be Broadway star quips.

And finally, there’s Phaedra finding out from Kandi Burruss that Apollo Nida apologized to Kenya for lying about their rumored tryst. Boy does she look shocked. Cut to: Apollo at the lawyer’s office apparently going through with his divorce threats from the premiere!

Lisa Vanderpump Reveals It Was Brandi Glanville Who Slapped Her in 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Trailer
Fee-fi-FOE-fum! Lisa Vanderpump joined Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny on Monday, Nov. 17, where the Brit revealed the identity of the culprit who slapped her in the explosive Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season five trailer. (Us Weekly revealed the trailer earlier this month.)

The no-nonsense restaurateur, 54, first called out McCarthy, 42, for comments she made while appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Brandi Glanville earlier this year. (In February, McCarthy questioned Vanderpump's motives on Andy Cohen's show. "I think Lisa's looking out for her spin-off…" McCarthy observed. "I think she's creating drama.")

Vanderpump went on Monday's show to put McCarthy in her place. "You can come on Watch What Happens Live and back me up for a change!" she joked, while the former View co-host unabashedly responded: "I'd love to call in and let's just trash Brandi. I'll be a s---starter for you."

The always-entertaining Glanville, 42, remained the main topic of conversation between Vanderpump and McCarthy on Monday. "How do you not punch some of these bitches in the face?" McCarthy commented, following up with the burning question: "Who ended up smacking you?"

"Well, your very good friend," Vanderpump responded. "The one you were on Watch What Happens Live! with — the one that you were backing."

"She hit you?!" a shocked McCarthy yelped. "Tell me you hit her back!"
While the reality TV veteran remained mum on what happened after the slap, she said the aftermath is still ongoing. "I'm not giving you final page of that book," Vanderpump said. "It was right at the end of filming, but it definitely changed the dynamic for me. I tried really hard, despite the fact that I was on that bloody show."

NeNe Leakes: ‘I’ll Make My Donation When I Get Ready To Make It’
NeNe Leakes said Kenya Moore took her time making a donation to the Detroit Public Schools, and NeNe’s not rushing to match those funds, just because Kenya finally gave her money.

“I’ll make my donation when I get ready to make it. She made hers when she got ready,” NeNe recently told TMZ.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans likely remember that NeNe challenged Kenya to make a $20,000 donation to a charity of her choice, and NeNe said she would match that donation.

Now, that Kenya has given her money, “RHOA” fans have been waiting to see whether NeNe will keep her word. Though she spoke about a “statute of limitation” on “Watch What Happens Live,” NeNe clarified that she never said she would not keep up her end of the bargain.

“Did I say I wasn’t going to pay the Detroit Schools? Did you hear me say that?” she asked. “No one heard me say that… There was no time where you heard me say I wasn’t going to make a donation.”

According to NeNe, she needs to do some investigating before forking over those thousands.

“We made to make sure Kenya made a payment first of all,” she said. “We also need to make sure they are a charity…and we made to make sure they are active…You have to make sure they’re credible.”

NeNe pointed out that some of her “RHOA” cast members have been less than truthful in other situations. She did not name Kenya specifically, but reasoned that she needs to check the facts first before being so generous.

“What I know is there’s a bunch of lies out there and I’ll pay when I get ready just as she did,” she said.

After 5th Attack on a Human, Kim Richards Finally Sends Pit Bull to Trainer
After Kim Richards's beloved pit bull Kingsley attacked her niece, Alexia Umansky, earlier this month, the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has temporarily removed the dog from her home.

"He's in a good place," Richards told TMZ on Saturday. "He's safe and with a trainer."

But the decision to send her dog away didn't come easy, despite a total of five reported incidents where Kingsley attacked humans.

"At this point I am looking into options to what the next step is for Kingsley," Richards, 50, said in a statement received by the New York Post after Kim's sister, Kyle (who also appears on the show), confirmed that her daughter had been bitten

"Regarding Alexia: She was attacked by a dog and has to have surgery. As always, she is trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Thank you for your thoughts & well wishes," Richards posted on Facebook Nov. 4.

Despite the animal's aggressive behavior, it doesn't appear that the mom of four – who got the dog to be her companion once her children moved out of the house – has any plans to put him down.

"As many of you can relate, he is my best friend," says Richards. "This is a very difficult decision and time for all of us, but the safety of my family always comes first."

Phaedra Parks' Estranged Husband Apollo Nida Admits He Lied About Kenya Moore Wanting to Have Sex with Him
Apollo Nida dropped a bombshell on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta when he apologized to Kenya Moore and admitted he lied about her wanting to have sex with him in L.A. last season.

"I apologize to you. It was a lie," Nida said of the allegation that infuriated his wife, Phaedra Parks, last year and made her and many of the wives turn their backs on Moore.

"You don't get what I've been through because of the things you said to your wife," said Moore. "She [said] I did these things, and they believed it. I've never been anyone's whore."

Pressed Moore: "Have I ever seen you in L.A.?" 

"Kenya, you've never seen me in L.A.," admitted Nida. "I know where I'm going, and I need my slate to be clear."

"In this moment, I truly feel vindicated," said Moore. "But I won't be vindicated until Phaedra apologizes."

Lisa Rinna Talks Joining "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is getting a dose of drama from a woman who knows all about it: Lisa Rinna.

The Melrose Place and Days of Our Lives veteran joins the reality show for season five alongside fellow soap opera vet Eileen Davidson and it's safe to say the two aren't afraid to mix things up with Real Housewives veterans Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster.

Rinna, who has appeared on Dancing With the Stars and Celebrity Apprentice and also co-starred opposite her husband Harry Hamlin in the reality series Harry Loves Lisa, said doing Beverly Hills Housewives was similar to Melrose Place.

"This is very close to doing Melrose Place without a script in your hand," she said. Rinna had been rumored to join the series during past seasons and was adamant that she was not joining the fray…until now.

"Like everything in life, it's all about timing. It's funny, when I went on to Melrose Place it was year five. This is year five of Housewives…To be honest with you, after talking about it with my husband, it's been a really great gig for me," she said, citing her time with her kids and being at home. "It felt right, to be honest with you…and I like an adventure, I was looking for an adventure."

In The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills trailer, Rinna is seen throwing wine (or some other kind of liquid)—and subsequently, a glass—at costar Kim Richards. Rinna had to remain coy about the details, but said, "I can't say it's anything I would have ever expected or imagined to ever have happen in my life…most of my friends have ever heard me raise my voice or get angry, really…what I learned is I am fiercely protective of my family."

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley Accused of Partying Instead of Going to See Slade's Son While In Hospital
Former The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and fiancé Slade Smiley are fighting back against web accusations that they partied instead of showing up to his cancer-stricken son Grayson’s bedside when the boy was hospitalized.

In an exclusive interview with, Rossi  called the charges “absurd,” and explained that Grayson’s mother Michelle Arroyo, Smiley’s ex-girlfriend, didn’t inform him of the health crisis.

And Smiley, 41, and Rossi enjoyed a surprise party Smiley had organized for Rossi’s 36th birthday at a different time frame from his son’s hospital visit, she said.

Smiley’s son, now 13, is battling a couple of different rare forms of brain cancer.

Rossi fumed to Radar, “Michelle made a Facebook post on Saturday, November 1, for everyone to see that Grayson went into the hospital. She did not even notify Slade about it and he had to find out through a third source, which personally I think is wrong.”

According to Rossi, “When he called Michelle to find out what was going on she said because of Grayson’s compromised immune system they admitted him to the hospital, but that he was fine and was released from the hospital.”

The couple was let go from RHOC but recently talked about Grayson’s illness on the reality show Marriage Bootcamp.

But Rossi objects to those who jump to conclusions about the situation, telling Radar, “The individuals and blogs who continue to use his son’s illness to promote false information in order to try to make us look bad or claim that Slade doesn’t care about his son are disgusting. Obviously they are just trying to drive traffic to their websites.

“Slade loves Grayson very much and just so it’s clear he would ALWAYS choose to be with his son over anything else — unfortunately he is not always given that choice.”

As Radar has previously reported, Smiley has wrestled with child support payment issues with Arroyo  in the past and his former RHOOC co-star Tamra Barney called him “a deadbeat with a sick son.”

NeNe Leakes Wants You To Know What A Great Friend She’s Been To Troubled Phaedra Parks
NeNe Leakes, in a new Bravo blog, says that she pledged her full support behind castmate Phaedra Parks during the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s personal turmoil swirling around estranged husband Apollo Nida.

Nida, as reported in detail, entered prison in September in connection with his 8-year sentence for bank fraud and identity theft; Phaedra’s decision to divorce him came around the same time-frame, as Radar was first to report.

The Glee star Thursday wrote that “it’s always sad to see a family end no matter who’s right or wrong,” and that she’s “glad” she can say she “was a rock for Phaedra during this time and never judged her.”

Perhaps throwing shade on some castmates who’ve been dragging her though the mud, NeNe pointed out that she hopes the incident will serve as “an eye opener” for Phaedra — and likely fans of the top-rated Bravo hit — that she’s a woman of strong character.

“It’s always the ones you never thought would support you that do,” the Broadway star wrote, ”and the ones you thought would be there during rough times that always seem to magically disappear.”

NeNe hinted that viewers of future Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes will see Phaedra’s old running mates “pretend to twirl and blow with the wind, while your girl continues to be the queen they wish they were!”

As Radar previously reported, NeNe has come under fire from castmates Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore as the show’s seventh season begins, with former pal Cynthia saying that NeNe has always been a fair-weather friend, and threatened by those who could steal her spotlight.

Vicki Gunvalson Talks Boyfriend Brooks’ Cancer Diagnosis, Rekindling Friendship with Jeana Keough and Shrinking Waistline
The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson puts everything on television when she is filming, including her divorce from Donn, her disagreements with daughter Briana, and even her failing friendship with Tamra Barney. But when Vicki isn’t in front of the cameras, she tends to keep her life to herself. She is rarely on Twitter, compared to some of her co-stars, and she doesn’t get into massive arguments with followers.

Earlier this year, Vicki Gunvalson learned that her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, had been diagnosed with cancer. He has started treatment, which includes chemotherapy. And while Gunvalson hasn’t discussed the matter in public, she may be taking this diagnosis personally. This week, she announced that she wants to be healthy.

According to a new tweet, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson revealed that she has been trying to slim down a bit. She doesn’t need to lose weight, but this cancer diagnosis may be something that has Vicki thinking about her health. Gunvalson just became a grandmother for the second time, so she wants to stick around for years to come.

“Day 11: Going strong. New energy coming thru and my waistline is shrinking. 21Day Transformation,” Vicki Gunvalson tweeted, tagging Club Detox in the tweet.

According to the Inquisitr, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has revealed that Brooks’ cancer diagnosis has really put her life into perspective. Given that Vicki has been caught up in some drama with her co-stars on the show about who-said-what, it is no surprise that Gunvalson is thinking about the more important things, such as her family and her grandchildren.

After learning of the cancer diagnosis, Vicki decided to look at her past. Over the years, she has gone through several friendships as new wives joined the show and then left again. The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson decided to reach out to Jeana Keough recently. The two had been neighbors once and had indeed been good friends. But after Jeana left the show, the friendship fizzled out. Their children remained good friends, so these are two are bonding once again.

Kenya Moore ‘Disheartened’ That Porsha Williams Won’t Apologize for Reunion Attack
Kenya Moore is coming to terms with the fact that she may never receive an apology from Porsha Williams.

After being dragged by the hair by Porsha during the season 6 reunion show, Bravo executive Andy Cohen advised Porsha to apologize to Kenya. However, Porsha has yet to say, “I’m sorry,” and she vowed that she never would.

“Will and apology ever come out of my mouth?” No,” said Porsha during the season 7 premiere.

Kenya, who denies she had anything to do with Porsha’s demotion on the show, found it disheartening that Porsha would refuse to extend an apology for the violence.

“Regardless of how anyone feels about me, there is a hard line between right and wrong. One should never condone violence and a physical attack should never be a response to a verbal one,” Kenya wrote on her blog. “Hearing anyone say that they will never apologize for a criminal act is disheartening. Even if one felt justified or provoked.”

Indeed, many “RHOA” fans have argued that Kenya did provoke Porsha’s attack by insulting the “Dish Nation” co-host using a bullhorn. However, Kenya said that despite any provocation, Porsha made a choice to react in violence.

“It comes down to a choice to walk a way or to succumb to anger and attack,” said Kenya.

While many have criticized her for starting drama and then complaining about personal attacks made toward her, Kenya said she’s “never played a victim.”

Referencing Porsha’s grandfather, who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., during the Civil Rights Era, Kenya said she’ll continue to practice nonviolence on the show.

“I will continue to take my cues from Martin Luther King and Hosea Williams, the late grandfather of Porsha Williams, who at times protested with him,” she wrote. “All who were often times spat on, kicked, beaten, hosed, and tormented, yet, they vowed to never to resort to violence nor raised a hand to others.

Rumors Allege Bravo Looking For Caroline Manzo To Comeback and Replace Teresa Giudice On 'RHONJ'
What’s old is new again!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped their explosive reunion, but already Bravo is thinking ahead to next season and trying to figure out what to do now that its star, Teresa Giudice, 42, must report to prison on Jan. 5.

While exclusively confirmed that Bravo is eyeing Jacqueline Laurita, 44, for full time status in the upcoming seventh season, a source close to production now reveals that they are also looking at Caroline Manzo, 53.

“Bravo has always liked Caroline,” the source tells Radar. “They realize with Teresa gone they are going to have to do something to keep viewers intrigued, interested, and tuned in.

Ratings were slipping this season, but improved when Kathy Wakile and Laurita returned. Now, “Bravo wants to ensure the ratings for next season are strong,” notes the source. “Caroline always brought Italian-Mom realness to the show, which viewers connected with. She also has a big fan base.”

What about the comments Manzo previously made that wives who returned to the franchise are crazy? “Caroline always likes to keep people thinking about what her next move will be,” notes the source. “If the offer from Bravo is right, Caroline will definitely consider it.”

And it looks like Manzo’s spin-off series, Manzo’d With Children, wouldn’t be affected by whatever decision she makes. Says the source, “Manzo’d exceeded Bravo’s expectations ratings-wise and they are definitely interested in another season.”
