NeNe Leakes Claims She Was Offered Her Own Show
In a new interview with BuzzFeed, NeNe discusses how RHoA paved the way for other shows and where she sees herself going next.

“There was no Love & Hip Hop, Hollywood Wives, or whatever. There were no African-American shows like that with ensembles,” says NeNe. “We just came on the scene and just did whatever. We had no handbook.”

While NeNe has had her fair share of on-set feuds, she says that, despite pressure to “turn it up” for ratings, you’ll never see her physically attack a castmate.

“I honestly don’t feel like you need to stoop to the level of physically fighting on camera. For what? There is no check that’s big enough for that. I certainly have had my moments of arguments on the show. But physically fighting to me is crossing the line,” she says. 

Despite the drama that’s ensued over the last few seasons and her own admission that she wants a spin-off, NeNe says she’s still unsure about leaving the show behind.

“I’ve been offered my own show. [But] I don’t want the pressure,” she says. “Housewives is an amazing platform. We have millions of viewers. I’m known from that show. I started there. I can’t say that I will remain full time all the time … I always want to see the show do well. So, in order for the show to do well, I feel like I can’t… I don’t want to abandon the show. When the time comes for me to totally step away, I’m sure I will. I just don’t know when.”
Personally I don't think NeNe should ever leave 'RHOA'. Kind of like Vicki with 'RHOC', at this point, regardless of how much screen time she gets, 'RHOA' still feels like it's NeNe's show. So unless she goes full diva and demands the title be changed to "NeNe and Company", I see no reason for NeNe to leave the show she helped build into the huge success it is today.

Demetria McKinney Reveals Who She's Really Friends With on the RHoA Cast
Demetria McKinney may be a newcomer to Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she’s already established some fabulous friendships with her fellow castmates.

Demetria may have had to suffer through Phaedra Parks’ impolite questions about drug use and plenty of cracks from other members of the cast about her less-than-smooth video release party, but it seems she’s still managed to find plenty of positive support from castmates Cynthia Bailey and Claudia Jordan.

In a new interview with, Demetria opens up about how her two new pals have helped her acclimate to the difficult world of reality TV.

Those were the two I felt genuinely gave me a chance to see how I was,” says Demetria. “Cynthia is who she is; you can’t help but love that. Claudia and I were supposed to be at odds. We are both tom boys, we both have successful backgrounds, we formed a friendship.”

Despite the fact that Demetria and Claudia were supposed to dislike one another, it’s clear that their bond has evolved into something special — she even gave her new pal a spot in her upcoming video for “Trade it All.”

“Cynthia, Claudia and I are genuinely friends,” explains Demetria. “I wanted to show in the video the difference between what people see and what happens behind the camera.”

While fans may want to see more of Demetria on RHoA, her reality career is far from the only project she has in the pipeline at the moment. In addition to Housewives and her music, Demetria recently filmed the pilot for TV show “Sons to the Grave,” co-starring Carlos Anthony Payne and Vivica Fox.

'RHOBH' Reunion Just Taped Last Week and Kyle Richards Says It Was the 'Toughest Yet'
Season 5 of RHOBH has felt like one long fight, hasn't it? Of course, Brandi Glanville has been smack in the middle of all the drama, as being there to hold up Kim Richards as she struggles to stay clean has really ticked Kyle Richards off. The sisters normally do have a bit of a rocky relationship, but lately things seem even worse than ever. On Friday, Feb. 20, the ladies gathered in Los Angeles to film the reunion show, and apparently things really got heated. It just taped, and Kyle said it was the "toughest yet."

It was actually Kyle who clued us in to the fact that the Season 5 reunion had taken place through her tweets. According to the reality star, this reunion was the roughest one yet, and that actually makes a lot of sense. In the most recent episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that are airing on Bravo, it is clear that the cast is divided in how to handle Kim.

Most of the ladies, like Glanville, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, believe Kim is back to her old tricks and using again. They feel it is their responsibility to speak up if they see her messed-up patterns starting again. Kyle, on the other hand, seems like she would rather tip-toe around the elephant in the room rather than risk making her sister mad.

There is absolutely no doubt that things took a hostile turn when it came to any discussion of Kim. Another issue is the health of Yolanda Foster. In recent months she has had a setback with her Lyme disease that left her struggling to read, write and process information. While the network would likely have let her skip the reunion, Foster is always a stickler for honoring her commitments, so while her involvement might be less than usual, she was there.

Sonja Morgan Launches New Fashion Line and ‘Sonja In The City’ Podcast
Sonja Morgan may have been absent from Bravo for quite some time, as The Real Housewives of New York wrapped earlier in 2014. But that doesn’t mean that this mother of one is ready to leave the spotlight. In fact, Morgan is rumored to be filming the newest season of the show alongside Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel.

And in case you were wondering why Sonja Morgan hasn’t released her toaster oven yet, it is because she is busy building her Sonja Morgan brand. Morgan had tried to convince her fellow co-stars that the way forward for her was her Sonja in the City brand. And while her co-stars may have questioned her, Sonja is pushing forward.

According to a new tweet, Sonja Morgan is in the studio, recording a podcast for herself called Sonja in the City. Here, Morgan will talk about things that she likes, stories from her life and, of course, her fashion ventures and business life. This is something that many people have looked forward to, and Morgan has shared some updates from the recording studio.
“Star of ‘Real Housewives of NY’ Sonja Morgan recounts stories from her life as a television personality, fashion icon and marketing guru as well as week-to-week updates on her entrepreneurial endeavors and jet-set lifestyle,” reads the official iTunes description for the podcast.

Of course, Sonja probably won’t be able to dish out some secrets from the upcoming season of the show, but she may be able to reflect on older episodes. Last season, Sonja Morgan had her heart broken by Harry Dubin, who couldn’t really commit to her. Since then, Morgan has been linked to much younger men, including a man half her age, according to the Inquisitr.

Even if there isn’t a toaster oven on the market, it sounds like Morgan is in full control when it comes to branding her Sonja in the City business. A podcast may be a great idea, given she can’t stay on social media all day to chat with her fans. Plus, with more products coming up, this podcast will be a great place for her to market her new ventures.

Kenya Moore Slams Phaedra Parks For Her Alleged Affair With ‘Mr. Chocolate’
The news of Phaedra Parks‘ alleged affair with a man named Chocolate is whipping through Atlanta, and her co-stars are horrified at the allegations.

In a sneak peek of the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey is seen telling Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan about Parks’ text messages with “Mr. Chocolate.”

“She was even saying I love you. She is in love with this guy apparently,” Bailey revealed, repeating what her husband Peter Thomas had told her.

“So she was having an affair on him and he’s not even in prison yet?” Moore asks incredulously, and then loses her temper about the double standard.

“What? Excuse me? I have just spilled tea all over myself,” she dramatically exclaims.

“How do you look me in my face and call me a wh*re,” Moore asks, referring to a previous time when Parks was insulting her. “You are f**king married!”

And Bailey agrees, saying she brought up the cheating story because of the “double standard, and says Parks shouldn’t be throwing rocks if she lives in a glass house.

“There is way too much wh*re calling!” Bailey declares.

And Moore agrees, saying: “Over the past few years, Phaedra has seemed to have an issue telling the truth.”
Parks has strenuously denied all infidelity allegations.

Lydia McLaughlin Reveals She Is Now Close Friends With Gretchen Rossi & Slade Smiley
When Lydia McLaughlin starred on The Real Housewives of Orange County’s 8th season, the fervent Christian clashed with costars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley. But in her upcoming book, the Beverly Hills Lifestyle managing editor, 33, reveals she is now at peace with the controversial couple, can exclusively reveal.

“During filming I mostly argued with Gretchen and Slade,” McLaughlin, married to entrepreneur Doug, 33, writes in Beyond Orange County: A Housewives Guide To Faith & Happiness, out on April 14. “But Doug and I have gone on double dates with them once we stopped filming, and consider them true friends!”

She even dedicated her Christian advice book/memoir in part to the pair, who were booted off the Bravo series in 2013.

“I am thankful for the friendships with Alexis, Jim, Gretchen, and Slade that continue to grow,” she says in the acknowledgements, also referring to former cast member and longtime friend Alexis Bellino, 38, and her husband Jim.

McLaughlin infamously lashed out at Smiley, 41, on camera when he made a comment about her pin thin frame.

Rossi, 36, hit back at McLaughlin for calling out her fiancée, snapping “I really want to be friends with you and cool with you … but now you’re starting to upset me.”

McLaughlin left the series after just one season, telling Star magazine she wanted to have a third child out of the spotlight.

She welcomed son Roman Scott on November 4, 2014.

Claudia Jordan Slams Porsha Williams In New ‘RHOA’ Blog, Doesn’t ‘Want Her Life, Hair Or Body’
Claudia Jordan had better watch her back, because fighting with Porsha Williams is never a good idea!

Despite being the newbie on the block, 41-year-old Jordan is already ruffling a lot of Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars’ feathers—Williams’ included.

But in a new post on her Bravo blog, Jordan is absolutely adamant that she’s “not jealous” of her catty co-star, Williams, 33.

“I am not that emotionally invested in Porsha, and if you ever catch me getting there, please take me out to pasture and put me out of my misery!” Jordan rants.

“Let’s be very clear — like crystal clear — I am not jealous of Porsha, she has nothing I want or couldn’t get if I wanted it. I do not want her life, hair, body, mouth, or situation,” she adds.

As Radar previously reported, Jordan is far from friends with the other women, and has earned the “most hated” status since her arrival, but she defends herself in this latest missive.

“I’ve never been the type of woman that couldn’t co-exist with successful women. I’ve never had the need to be the ‘star’ in my group of friends,” she explains.

“I actually like to surround myself with women that are upwardly mobile, intelligent, fabulous, successful, independent, and inspirational. So to suggest jealousy over a woman that only has more material items than me for now is laughable.”

Lisa Vanderpump Disses Bethenny Frankel For Having Evil Co-Star Brandi Glanville On Her Old Talk Show
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump has never hid the fact that her friendship with Brandi Glanville has been a painful journey. Brandi began questioning Lisa’s intentions and Vanderpump was extremely hurt. Glanville never apologized and the housewives were confused as to who to believe.

Luckily, some of the Real Housewives were able to come to their own conclusions. Joyce Giraud continued her friendship with Vanderpump, while Brandi Glanville went on a media tour, explaining how much Lisa had changed from being in the spotlight. Sadly, Glanville’s drinking made people think that she was just a drunk looking for attention. Now, Bethenny Frankel is getting involved in this broken friendship, because of a single tweet. It sounds like the insults are flying on Twitter.

According to a new tweet, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump learned that Bethenny was catching up on this current season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And in the tweet she shared, Frankel revealed that she had known many of the women for a long time. But she also said that she was biting her tongue. Clearly, she had plenty of things to say about the drama happening.

That’s when one follower called out Bethenny for talking about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars on her talk show, Bethenny, and even inviting Brandi onto the show to dish about the drama on The Real Housewives. And that’s when Vanderpump decided to make some digs at Frankel.

“Too funny but that is why I never did the show…It was all too much,” Lisa reveals about Bethenny’s talk show, hinting that going onto a talk show to make your case almost seemed sad and desperate.

“Lisa you been in the game long enough to no what is expected when you go on a talk show,” one follower pointed out, which had Lisa replying, “yes I know and it was my choice not to go….then it was cancelled.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Vanderpump clearly made a dig at Bethenny, reminding the New York housewife that her talk show was cancelled after just one season. Lisa’s spin-off show, 
Vanderpump Rules, is currently wrapping up a successful third season with a big potential for a fourth. Plus, now that Frankel is returning to The Real Housewives of New York, Vanderpump could have said much more to really shut Bethenny up.

Of course, Lisa is currently trying to move on from Brandi and their failed friendship. It is painful to watch The Real Housewives to see what is being said and done behind Lisa’s back. According to the Inquisitr, Vanderpump is done with Brandi and could be done with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Kenya Moore Rips ‘Cold-Hearted’ Phaedra Parks For Dumping Convict Husband Apollo Nida
Kenya Moore is taking sides in the split between Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks, and it’s no surprise whose team she’s on! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star ripped into her co-star in her latest Bravo blog, calling Parks’ attitude towards her husband “unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending.”

As Nida’s jail sentence is set to begin on the show, viewers have seen him and Parks caught in conflict after conflict, and Moore says she is supporting the convicted criminal over his wife.

“It was very uncomfortable to watch them,” Moore wrote about the fighting pair. “No one wants to witness the demise of a marriage when there are children involved. Phaedra appeared unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending.”

And why the animosity? It’s all personal with Moore.

“The truth is and remains that they each have said malicious and hurtful things to me to cause public humiliation and disrepute. However, I find myself more empathetic toward Apollo, because the difference between Phaedra and Apollo is that Apollo had the decency to apologize to me for what he had done to me,” she claimed. “He showed contrition for his smear campaign and Phaedra has not.”

Moore, who famously fought with Porsha Williams at the reunion episode, blames Parks for not apologizing to her.

“She is seemingly proud of what she did to me and has no remorse. Therefore, when I witnessed all the accusations about him threatening to burn the house down, having punched holes in the walls (which we did not see), and her mother stating she doesn’t want to come home and find ‘everybody dead,’ it seemed to me like another one of her smear campaigns, thereby making it easier to defend the cheating allegations coming down the pike [sic].”

Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer Duke It Out at Sonja Morgan’s Fashion Show
Bethenny Frankel’s right back in the “Housewives” drama.

Frankel, who has returned to the series, was seen having a heated argument with fellow Housewife Ramona Singer in the front row at a fashion show Tuesday night for Sonja Morgan’s new clothing line, held at the Carriage House Center for the Arts.

Cameras for “The Real Housewives of New York City” were rolling during the showing of the collection, which included a 10-minute period smack in the middle when, bizarrely, no models came down the runway.

It was during this lull that Frankel and Singer could be heard passionately arguing over the thumping of the club music playing.

Fellow Housewives Kristen Taekman, Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson and LuAnn de Lesseps were also in attendance, as well as reported new cast member Dorinda Medley. Though they were all sitting together, none of the other ladies appeared to engage in the quarrel.

Teresa Aprea, Husband Rino Sued by Former Workers
Teresa Giudice isn't the only 'Housewife' with legal issues!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Aprea is being sued by her restaurant staff at Angelo’s of Mulberry St. in New York — and they're seeking compensation for shorted checks and laundry bills!

An anonymous colleague told 'TMZ' the staff was paid for seven hours, but would usually work up to 10 hour shifts. It is also state law for an employer to foot the bill for all work uniforms that need cleaning, but the reality star had her staff handle their laundry themselves.

Class action suit attorney David Gottlieb is asking the reality star to pay $2500 per employee, which covers “unpaid wages and overtime, uniform cleaning costs,” in addition to unspecified damages.

Eileen Davidson And Lisa Rinna Bonding Over Acting Careers: Are They Best Friends On ‘RHOBH'?
Eileen Davidson may have joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with the intention of having fun and bonding with the other ladies, but she quickly learned that tensions from previous seasons were still lurking. Brandi Glanville clearly had some issues that she needed to work through with Lisa Vanderpump, and sadly, Eileen fell victim to Brandi.

During a fun girl’s night out, Eileen Davidson ended up having wine tossed in her face, which was not very pleasing for anyone sitting at the table. While some people excused Brandi for her outrageous behavior, others condemned her for it. Either way, it sounds like Eileen wasn’t having an easy time bonding with Glanville. Davidson was hesitant to open up after the wine toss.

According to a new set of tweets, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Eileen Davidson is now revealing that she has found someone on the show to bond with. Given that both she and Lisa Rinna are actresses, they now fully support one another.

“Switching channels to see my girls, Lisa Rinna and Hunter Kaley King, on CSI,” Eileen Davidson wrote on Twitter, adding, “go Lisa! Yay! Great job!!!” when the episode was over.

“THANK YOU EILEEN EMMY WINNER YOU!!!!” Lisa Rinna replied to Eileen, thrilled that Davidson was offering her full support to her.

Even though Eileen hasn’t really been bonding with Brandi, she has had her thoughts about her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star. According to the Inquisitr, Davidson has been calling Brandi a liar for what has happened with Kim Richards and her sister Kyle Richards. In fact, Eileen seems to think that Glanville ruined the mixer where Kyle was supposed to have a good time with her friends.

Kenya Moore Really Has A New Boyfriend
Kenya Moore has long been evasive about her love life, admitting to having boyfriends but refusing to reveal their identities to fans, but now, Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger is dishing the dirt on just who Kenya’s coupled up with.  

During a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Patti revealed that Kenya’s boyfriend is not only real (despite what some of her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars might say), but he was actually picked out by Patti herself.

“She’s dating the guy that I fixed her up with,” says Patti.

It seems that Kenya’s new dude has all the makings of a perfect partner: not only is he a graduate of an Ivy League school, he’s also got no children in the picture for Kenya to play stepmother to.

While Wendy joked that it was only a matter of time before Kenya’s new beau realized that she’s a little bit loopy, Patti was eager to stick up for her client.

“She and I have very similar problems. We’re both abandoned children,” says Patti.

Kenya may be keeping her relationship on the DL for now, but her new guy won’t be a secret for long — the RHoA beauty’s dating life will be featured in an upcoming episode of Millionaire Matchmaker

Lisa Vanderpump Tries To Ignore Venomous Co-Star Brandi Glanville On Twitter
A Real Housewives Twitter feud has erupted between Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville. As the drama between them continues on RHOBH, Vanderpump and Glanville have taken their tension to Twitter.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier, Glanville recently started a feud with her Real Housewives co-star after Vanderpump claimed she was “irrelevant” in her blog.

On February 15, Glanville shared the following message on Twitter.
“If I’m so irrelevant and you can’t stop talking about me and blogging about me what does that make you!??”
Although Vanderpump didn’t directly acknowledge the comment at first, she did re-tweet a message shared by a fan on February 16.
“@BrandiGlanville it’s called a cast blog. As a housewife, you know @LisaVanderpump is contractually obliged to give her thoughts on footage.”
Following the Real Housewives star’s re-tweet, several fans weighed in on the situation, most of whom agreed with Vanderpump. One woman pointed out that Glanville wasn’t very bright and was likely drunk at the time of her post. Another fan claimed Glanville was a trouble starter, and wondered why she was still on the show.

Later that same day, Vanderpump shared her own message regarding her Bravo obligations.
“We are required to blog and analyze week, sharing our opinions.”
In her blog, Vanderpump had encouraged Kyle Richards to look past the comments Glanville made during the episode regarding her husband allegedly not wanting her, noting that Glanville’s words were irrelevant as she was.

Since Glanville joined the series during Season 2, her relationship with Kyle Richards hasn’t been good. 

Although the pair enjoyed a brief friendship during Season 4, the majority of their time together has been dramatic. In one particular scene from Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Glanville accused Richards’ sister, Kim, of being on drugs and made physical threats against her. Glanville also made physical threats against Richards during Season Five, telling Richards she was going to knock her teeth out if she didn’t leave her alone.

In her own blog, Richards spoke out against Glanville, as well, slammed her for using others to deflect from her own behavior.
“I’m not saying Brandi was drunk that night. I don’t believe she was, but she just wants to put things out there about everyone else to distract from her own behavior. I think there are a few words Brandi should probably refrain from accusing other people of being…reckless, drunk, or inappropriate.”

LuAnn de Lesseps Promises Plenty of Drama on the Upcoming Season of RHONY
It seems there is trouble in paradise ... we mean New York City.

According to Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, star of The Real Housewives of New York City, there will be plenty of drama on the upcoming season, which is currently filming.

It all starts with the return of Bethenny Frankel. While de Lesseps and Frankel get along well, she can't say the same for the rest of the cast.

"I didn't know what it was gonna be like, I thought it was going to be awkward but it's actually turned out to be good. We get along really well so it's like old times ... it's kind of like the good old days of the Housewives," the former model told PEOPLE at the launch of EVINE Live in N.Y.C. on Friday night. 

As for the other castmates? "Nooo, never!" the Countess says. While she can't share who Frankel is butting heads with, she does say that viewers will be surprised by whom Frankel doesn't get along with. Maybe it's the blunt Heather Thomson or silent but deadly Kristen Taekman?

Or maybe it's the new cast member.

"We're eight now, we've added a new Housewife," the Countess tells PEOPLE. "I must say, she is doing great because we all know her. It's not like someone who you don't know who just comes in and you are like, who is this person? She has the same lifestyle, so I think she'll be a good addition."

De Lesseps does confirm with PEOPLE that she is pretty much "fully back" on the show, after being only a part-time cast member last season.

"Those tag lines were so bad last season, I am glad I wasn't in that," she says. The "Money Can't Buy You Class" singer is referring to lines that the Housewives say during the Bravo show's opening credits like Taekman's, "I might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I'm pretty!"

The group just returned from the Housewives trip that they take every season. While De Lesseps wouldn't share where they went, she did promise plenty of drama.

"We just came from the Housewives trip. That was pretty crazy," she tells PEOPLE. "We always say to each other when we start the season, 'What are we gonna come up with this time around?' We don't make this stuff up. It all stems from what is really going on with us so I was thinking, 'What kind of drama is there really gonna be?' Because God knows, the show doesn't work without some drama. And you know, it just happens,."

As for new drama, don't count on the usual tiffs between the de Lesseps and longtime cast member Ramona Singer.

"You are going to see a different dynamic between Ramona and myself, it's changed for the good," she said.

Teresa & Joe Giudice’s Prison Valentine’s Day Plans Reveale: ‘No Flowers Or Chocolates’
Teresa Giudice is spending Valentine’s Day locked behind cold prison bars, and although her loyal husband Joe Giudice may surprise her with a visit, has learned the former reality star will definitely not be getting diamonds, fur, or even chocolates this year!

“Teresa will get no special privileges for tomorrow’s lovers holiday,” says Beatrice Codianni, who served 14 years at the same Danbury, Connecticut, prison as Giudice. “He can kiss her when he arrives and kiss her when he leaves, but there is absolutely no hugging or kissing while he is visiting her tomorrow.”

“Joe will not be able to bring Teresa flowers or chocolates,” Codianni tells Radar. “Instead of dinner at a crowded, fancy restaurant, if Teresa is fortunate enough to get a visit she and Joe may share items like cupcakes, candy bars and soda from the vending machine.”

“But when you are in prison it is not about the presents or bonbons,’ Codianni continues. “It is about seeing a loved one. Knowing that Joe came to see her will make her day very special.”

The judge in the couple’s fraud case allowed Teresa’s 43-year-old husband to serve his 41-month sentence in prison after Giudice is released next year so that he may care for their four daughters Gia, 13, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5.

Codianni notes that “if he brings her girls tomorrow it will be an extra special treat—it will show her she’s not been forgotten.”

But they will be together and that is the important thing,” Codianni, who is now the Managing Editor of Reentry Central adds.

Yolanda Foster To Have Limited Participation On 'RHOBH' Reunion As She Battles Lyme Disease
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Yolanda Foster continues to fight the effects of Lyme disease. The Dutch-native said in a recent blog post that the disease has left her feeling like "someone came in and confiscated my brain." 

A new report revealed that the reality star's neurological health continues to dwindle and that she is having "trouble just forming sentences." It has also been reported that, as she continues to battle the disease, her role in the upcoming reunion of the Bravo show will be limited, reported Radar Online

"The reunion is scheduled to be filmed in the next couple of weeks and Yolanda's participation will likely be very limited," an insider told Radar. "Contractually, cast members are all required to participate, but if Yolanda wasn't able to do it because of the Lyme disease ... she obviously wouldn't be forced."

The source continued," Yolanda does want to do it because she is always so professional about work commitments. The main issue with Yolanda's health is the constant fatigue and serious memory issues. Recently, Yolanda has had trouble just forming sentences, and sometimes can't articulate what she is trying to say."

However, Foster is eager to appear on the show, so that she can bring awareness for Lyme disease. 

"Being on the reunion will help raise awareness for Lyme disease, and she is determined to find a cure," the source said.

In her Bravo blog post, Foster shockingly revealed that she has lost the ability to read, write, or even watch television. 

"I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can't process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it," she wrote. 

The TV star went on to credit her family, David Foster, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid for keeping her strong.

Apollo Nida Raids Estranged Wife Phaedra Parks’ House… When He Should Be in Prison
In the February 8 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra Parks expressed concern that her estranged husband Apollo Nida was exhibiting troubling behavior in the days leading up to the start of his prison sentence, but she didn’t seem convinced that he would actually do anything to harm her. However, in the promo for the February 15 episode of RHoA below, Apollo shocks his wife when he shows up at the house they once shared on the day that he was supposed to head to prison. We remember reporting on this incident when it actually happened several months ago, but it’s even more terrifying to watch.

Oddly enough, Phaedra is in the process of changing her garage door locks when Apollo drops by for a surprise visit. “Why would you lock me out of my own house?” he asks Phae-Phae as he charges inside.
“You’re supposed to be reporting to prison today,” she retorts. Though the mom of two keeps her cool, her assistant wonders if they should call the police.  

“He was supposed to actually be in custody several hours ago,” Phaedra tells the Bravo cameras. “But because it is Apollo, I’m not shocked that he’s on the lam.” As we see footage of Apollo tearing through the house and knocking things over for no apparent reason, Phaedra continues, “Luckily our children are with my mom, safe.”

The prison-bound father of two drops one more bomb before the clip ends, but you’ll just have to watch it for yourself to see what he says. Check out the full snippet below!

Brandi Glanville Hints At Departure From 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Notorious “Real Housewives” troublemaker Brandi Glanville is hinting she may be done stirring up the drama on the hit Bravo show.

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” bad girl told In Touch her time on the show could have an expiration date.

“I’m not sure how much longer I have on that show,” Glanville told the gossip mag. “Maybe it’s not for me anymore.”

The blonde beauty has repeatedly been at the center of some of the biggest fights on the series and is often made out to be the villain by the rest of her cast mates.

In the past, she has openly spoken about needing her paycheck from the show to support her two sons. She and ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, who is now married to LeAnn Rimes, have publically battled over child support issues and her financial struggles have been at the center of many of the show’s plotlines.

Back in Feb. 2013 she said she was paid $18,000 as a part-time cast member during her first season on the show, and she said that the full-time cast members were paid $250,000. She has since become one of the major cast members on the show and has stayed mum about how much she is bringing in for her reality role.

Glanville told In Touch if she leaves the show, maybe Rimes, who she has incessantly feuded with, should take her place.

“She could be good at it,” Glanville said of her ex’s one-time mistress. “Maybe it’ll be her next thing.”
Of course I'd be thrilled if she left. But Andy Cohen and Bravo seem to love her a whole lot since they continue to put up her evil ways and antics. Still, as I've suggested before, since she's so polarizing, hated by just about every Housewife (except Flaky Kim) and yet claims to need a paycheck. Why not just do everybody a favor and keep everyone happy by taking her off 'RHOBH' and give her her own show? Brandi claims to have lots of friends and she has a huge following plus, they kind of did this already with Kim Zolciak and 'RHOA' and that worked out well. There, problem sloved.

Lisa Hochstein Ecstatic About Expecting a Baby Via Surrogate: "We Almost Lost Hope"
During her time on Real Housewives of Miami, Lisa Hochstein was always trying to make the impossible, possible.

Whether it was making girls' trips peaceful or having enemies turn into friends, the Bravo star tried her best to be the peacekeeper of the group.

But through all the dramatic moments in Miami, Lisa had one extra special wish she couldn't help but remain focused on: She really wanted a child of her own.

To our delight, E! News can confirm the reality star is expecting a baby via surrogate and the due date is closer than you may think.

"She is four months [or] 16 weeks so we are due Aug. 1," Lisa shared with E! News exclusively. "We should know [the sex] soon. It almost doesn't seem real. We had almost lost hope." 

During her time on Real Housewives of Miami, Lisa and her plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein allowed cameras to document emotional doctor visits and even IVF treatments.

"It was so frustrating and depressing," she explained when reliving failed attempts. "Now, we're just so ecstatic. It's our biological child. 100 percent ours. We're simply using a surrogate to carry it. It's like a nine-month sleepover."

While the couple eagerly waits for their newest family member, both Lisa and Lenny are already planning their child's new home. Their house on Star Island was torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. And today, it's bigger and better than ever for a little baby.
"There's plenty of room for one nursery and hopefully more," she explained. "My closet is going to be out of this world. I've actually made an entrance so I can go from my closet straight to the nursery."

And while the future of Real Housewives of Miami still remains a giant question mark, Lisa is open to sharing her personal life with cameras once again.

"Never say never," she shared with E! News. "I'm just happy if my doing the show helped other women deal with their fertility struggles. That's the most rewarding part."

Bravo Execs Definitely Want Claudia Jordan Back For Next Season Of ‘RHOA’ After Epic Fights With NeNe Leakes
Claudia Jordan‘s arrival on the Real Housewives of Atlanta has caused more fights than ever before, earning her the “most hated” status among the cast members. But has learned that it’s made her a favorite of producers — and they’re planning to ask her back for a second season!

“The Bravo executives LOVE Claudia,” a source told Radar. “Her personality is clashing with so many of the women and it has created great story lines. They’re really happy with her and want her back again.”

Despite NeNe Leakes‘ calling Jordan a “wh**e,” she’s made a few friends on the show, notably Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey. But it’s the antagonistic relationships that Bravo loves.

“Claudia knows how to pick her battles and who to fight with,” the source explained. “Clashing with NeNe is the best thing she could have done on the show because it gets her a story line. NeNe is the queen of RHOA and so anyone that she hates is automatically going to get a lot of attention.”

Kyle Richards: ‘Brandi Doesn’t Care She Is Hurting My Marriage’
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards warned viewers that this season would be dramatic, emotional, and downright hurtful. And now, fans of the show are seeing how Brandi Glanville is inserting herself into the sibling relationship between Kyle and Kim Richards. On a previous Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show, Glanville claimed that she thought Kyle wanted to see Kim fail with her sobriety.

This comment started a long feud on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and it continues to this day, as Glanville continues to claim this to be true. Now, Kyle is speaking out about her role on the Real Housewives, and she is shocked that Brandi doesn’t care about other people. Last week on the show, Glanville said that Richards’ husband didn’t care about her either, bringing up cheating rumors that surfaced on a previous season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

According to a new Real Mr. Housewife report, Kyle Richards is now revealing that Brandi is using the Real Housewives platform to spread hatred and hurtful comments and stories. It sounds like she feels attacked by Glanville, who has both haters and supporters. Now, Kyle has some advice for her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star.
“Stop the public threatening and going after people. She just needs to be grateful for what she has in her life and quit being so negative. Life is too short to be this angry. Lots of women go through difficult times and don’t behave badly. While I have no interest in a friendship with her, I do wish her and her boys the best.”
She adds that the next few weeks of Real Housewives will be dramatic, because she will continue to fight with Glanville. Of course, it is no secret that the mother of two will use social media to share her side of the story and she strongly believes that Kyle wants to see her sister fail, even though none of the other Real Housewives stars see it that way.
“The next few weeks will definitely have Brandi attacking me on the show and then on social media. That’s just a given with someone like her. You know that if you don’t get along with her, she will go after you. Brandi doesn’t care if she hurts your marriage, your children, your family, your businesses — she doesn’t care. As mean as that comment was, it has no impact on my marriage, as much as Brandi would like it to.”
Of course, the last thing Richards needs is people to get involved with her marriage and question her husband’s fidelity. According to the Inquisitr, she has also been dealing with an imposter, who has been reaching out to both Kim and Mauricio, pretending to be her.
When your sister is a total lush/flake like Kim is, evil people like Brandi are bound to take advantage of the situation. Then too, after seeing Brandi's vile treatment of every single member of RHOBH at one point or another since she joined the show, Kyle's an idiot for pretending to be surprised at this drama going on now, much less totally conceited for thinking Brandi would never go after her this way. After all, evil has no boundaries.

Teresa Giudice Working In Kitchen and Watching 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' In Her New Life at Danbury Prison
Teresa Giudice has settled in to a comfortable routine inside Danbury Federal Prison, staying busy with a packed schedule of working in the clink kitchen and joining a TV watching club with fellow inmates, a source tells Confidenti@l.

“She is watching ‘Empire’ and ‘Scandal’ with two other inmates,” says our insider, who adds that the jailed ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star has a fairly lenient television watching schedule because she is on her best behavior. “She is also watching ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ ”

Besides watching the tube in the common room with her new gal pals, Giudice has landed a job in the big house’s kitchen, whipping up some of her famous Italian specialties, among other things, with whatever ingredients she can find.

“She’s not in laundry (as had been incorrectly reported), she’s in the kitchen cooking,” says our source.

We also hear the jail has been overwhelmed with fan mail for Giudice, and that she has been receiving a “ton” of letters from supporters wishing her well while she spends the next 10 months locked up.

“She (is reading) them. She isn’t writing back, though, she doesn’t have the time,” explains our source, saying that Giudice’s days inside the slammer are packed with chores and have little down time.

She has been writing emails to her four daughters, though, which are monitored by jail staffers.

Lisa Hochstein Expecting Via Surrogate After Long Infertility Struggle
Time to celebrate! After years of struggling to conceive, Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein is finally going to be a mother. The Bravo reality star and her plastic surgeon husband Lenny Hochstein are expecting their first child via a surrogate, Lisa confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

As fans of the series know, the couple’s happy news comes after three miscarriages and four failed IVF attempts. 

“It did not feel real, almost unbelievable!” the petite Housewife, 32, tells Us of learning they were finally expecting. “Although I was beyond excited and overjoyed, we did not want to get our hopes up too high until we passed the first trimester.”

After struggling to conceive for years, and documenting some of the painful process on seasons two and three of the Bravo show, Lisa explains they considered this latest round their “last resort.”

“We felt that we tried almost every option available to us except surrogacy,” she explains. “Adoption was a consideration if this didn’t work.”

Even with a baby on the way, the mom-to-be admits that it “was a difficult decision” to choose the surrogate route. “Hopefully in the future I will have this opportunity,” she tells Us of becoming pregnant herself.

Phaedra Parks Struggles With Telling Her Sons About Estranged Husband Apollo Nida's Prison Sentence
Phaedra Parks may need to harness her powers of persuasion in her career as an attorney, but when it comes to telling her kids about their father’s prison sentence, she seems to be at a loss for words.
On Sunday’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra consults a pal about how to tell her children that Apollo will be spending the next eight years in prison.   
Phaedra explains that, in the time leading up to his incarceration, Apollo’s behavior toward her and their children has become “very threatening and angry,” causing her to fear for her safety and the safety of her kids.   
"Because I haven't made a decision on whether or the children will visit with Apollo, it's making him act very erratic and angry, but at the end of the day, I don't care how much Apollo kicks and screams or goes to the club — I will do what's best for these children,” says Phaedra.   
While Phaedra has always made it clear that she’s less-than-enthused about the idea of visiting Apollo in prison, she clarifies that it’s not just her anger toward her estranged husband that’s informing her decision.   
"It's always been my desire to raise strong black men and I don't ever want them to think that going to jail is acceptable,” says Phaedra.

LuAnn De Lesseps Says Ramona Singer Is Doing 'Much Better' Without Ex-Husband Mario
Ramona Singer has been a newly single woman for a few months now. So how is the "Real Housewives of New York City" adjusting to life without her ex-husband Mario Singer?

The reality star filed for divorce from her husband for the second time back in August after finding out that Mario was still having relations with his longtime mistress, 32-year-old Kasey Dexter.

Divorce is a hard thing for anyone to swallow and while many would expected Ramona to be completely devastated after having to end her 22-year marriage, but her RHONY cast mate LuAnn de Lesseps recently revealed that the newly single mom has been fairing just fine without her ex-husband.

LuAnn recently appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" and a caller asked the 49-year-old if her friend Ramona, 58, was better with or without Mario, to which LuAnn replied very candidly.

"Much better without," LuAnn boldly stated.

However it was her following comment that really caught our attention.

 "I never liked Mario," the Countess said in a whisper to the show's host Andy Cohen. "It's true. I say it on the show."

Yolanda Foster’s Husband David Gives Lyme Disease Update
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster isn’t doing great. In a new interview, her record producer husband, David, gave fans an update on her battle with Lyme disease.

“Yolanda is truthfully not great. She’s just waging this war,” the 65-year-old told Us Weekly. “She’s down right now. She keeps traveling the world looking for a cure and when she finds it she’ll be able to give that to the world.”

As the Inquisitr reported last month, Yolanda opened up about her Lyme disease relapse in a heartfelt blog on Bravo’s official website.

Since then, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s husband has been as supportive as possible.
“I try when I’m home to be as supportive as I can, but she’s just worn out. It just beats you to the ground. The strange thing about Lyme is that for some people can get it and they can have it for a couple of years and they just fight it off like a cold. And for other people it brings them to their knees.”
“She’s a warrior, so she’s going to beat it,” David added.

Although David often travels for work, he’s planning to be home for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.
“My wife, swear to God, loves a love note more than she loves a piece of jewelry,” he gushed. “We alternate as to who’s up to plan the [holiday].”

In her Bravo blog on January 15, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda revealed the following in regard to her battle with Lyme disease.
“I would like to apologize for my lousy participation in the blogging department at the moment. Although writing is usually my favorite thing to do, I unfortunately have lost the ability to do so in an intelligent matter at this time,” Yolanda Foster reveals, adding, “Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60% recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back.
“I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.”

Kyle Richards Asks Sister Kim: 'You're Going to Let Brandi Glanville Come Between Us?'
Sibling rivalry is tough enough, but put Brandi Glanville between sisters Kyle and Kim Richards and it turns into a family feud.

"I have always been there for my sister, and for Brandi to come in after a hot minute and suggest [otherwise] is a slap in the face," Kyle said on Tuesday's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, after she and Glanville got physical at the party from hell last week.

Kim, who was acting whackadoodle at the party, admitted to her sister that she took a pill to help her through recent pain and ended up in the hospital for a week with a hernia and cracked rib.

"The fact my sister took this pill is scary," said Kyle. "It's a really bad choice ... but she acknowledged it." 

But Kim was still upset that Kyle made such a big deal of it at the party after her lengthy sobriety, and told Kyle that although she loved her, Glanville was her good friend and had been there for her.

"I don't trust her," said Kyle.

"Brandi is on my side," said Kim.

"I don't think Kyle wants the burden of worrying any more about Kim," Glanville said.

Later, Kyle tossed a gay mixer at a martini lounge for her "amazing gay guy friends who are single," in hopes of helping them find love.

"Mixer? Alcohol? With gays?" said Lisa Rinna. "Fun!"

But that quickly ended when Glanville entered with Kim.

"I sat with my sister telling her how I felt about Brandi, and she brings her to my party?" Kyle asked, although Kim said she brought her to bury the hatchet.

The two tried initially, with Kyle apologizing for pushing Glanville.

"We do a fake air kiss, and I'm thinking this might be okay," said Glanville.

But it wasn't.

"You've been friends for six months," Kyle told Glanville. "You shouldn't come between two sisters."
