Bethenny Frankel Hired A "Personlity" Coach?!?

Trying to make herself more likable for her return to “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Bethenny Frankel has hired personality coaches to help her “tone down.”

The reality star returns for the next season of “Housewives” after leaving in 2010 to star in “Bethenny Ever After,” a spinoff documenting her marriage to estranged husband Jason Hoppy.

But Frankel is working to earn back public appeal after a messy split from Hoppy and the cancellation of her daytime talk show, “Bethenny.”

A source told The New York Post that Frankel, known for her brash, opinionated demeanor, has hired personality coaches to help her “tone down her s–t.”

The source explained, “She’s turned herself into a victim and been told by these coaches to be much more demure, and not be as harsh as she was.”

Frankel recently appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” chat show in which she admitted to host Andy Cohen that she would never get legally married again. 

She also confessed to being single after splitting up with boyfriend of about one year, financier Michael Cerussi III.

The reality star is still living in the same apartment as Hoppy which meant that she was forced to film everything for “Real Housewives” outside of the apartment.

The new season of “Housewives” starts April 7. Reps for Bravo and Frankel didn’t respond.

Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes Team Up to Travel "The Road to Riches"

Once notorious for their on-camera feuds, former enemies Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann will soon be back together on TV with a brand new show.

Bravo announced Monday that the Real Housewives of Atlanta standouts will executive produce and star in the forthcoming series, which follows the pair as they take an epic road trip.

According to a network statement, "Atlanta's 'most driven' Housewives … drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure."

"The road to L.A. may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn't mean they won't occasionally drive each other crazy." 

While both Housewives have already starred in their own spinoffs – Zolciak Biermann's Don’t be Tardy has filmed three seasons while Leakes's I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding documented her second marriage to then ex-husband Gregg – this new series is a first for the RHOA alums.

While the ladies rev up their engines, Leakes can still be seen in new episodes of RHOA, airing Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Jacqueline Laurita Slams Woman Who Labels Autistic Children ‘Waste Of Society’s Resources’

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita has fired back against a hater of her adorable autistic son, Nicholas. 
According to the website “The Real Mr Housewife,” a woman named Jane Wong wrote a shocking comment on the online page of Autism Behavioral Services (a group that strives to improve the quality of life for children with the disorder). 
Wong reportedly asked, “Why do people give birth to autistic kids? Waste of society’s resources.” 
Laurita, whose son Nicholas was diagnosed with autism and has shared their journey on RHONJ, immediately wanted to educate the woman in an open letter. 
Laurita wrote: 
Dear Jane W(r)ong, When your appalling and uneducated post appeared on the Facebook wall of the Autism Behavioral Services page, I couldn’t believe that a human being could have such a lack of compassion and empathy for others by having the audacity to say something so vile, and so publicly, about the life of another human being. I thought to myself, ‘What a hateful, hurtful and ignorant thing to say!’ For a moment, I found your comment extremely offensive and I felt anger towards you.” 
Laurita went on to say, “I began to feel sadness for you. I have no idea what challenges in life that you have had to endure, or what kind of mental programming you’ve grown up with for you to think the way you do. 
“I began to think that maybe I could help you in some way. Maybe if I educated you, just a little, I could open up your mind into a new way of thinking and possibly open your heart to allow in a little more compassion. I believe it’s worth an effort.” 
Laurita added she is a very proud mother of a child with autism and made various points, including that there is no prenatal test that will tell you that your child will be born with the disorder and that she went through five miscarriages to finally give birth to her “miracle child,” Nicholas.

Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker Confirm Spin-off Show: “Meet the Tuckers”

Spin-offs seem to be the thing nowadays for reality stars, especially for Real Housewives divas. First off, “Vanderpump Rules” with the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (RHOBH) star Lisa Vanderpump. Secondly, Kenya Moore from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (RHOA) wrote, produced, directed and starred in her own sitcom “Life Twirls On.” NeNe Leakes from “RHOA” almost had one but rejected the offer. Now, the sex couple Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker confirmed their own. Read on to find out.

RealityTea.com reported the spin-off deal by the “RHOA” couple, based on Burruss’ Instagram posts. Their family drama, “Meet the Tuckers” (does “Meet the Fockers” ring a bell?), is expected to show their complicated married life, bittersweet parenthood and struggles of establishing their own production business.
The couple’s married life became confusing because of their Mama drama, specifically the infamous fight between Mama Joyce Burruss and the late Sharon Tucker. The show would surely present the hardships of Todd while recuperating from his mother’s death.

It is pointed out on RealityTea.com how strange it was that Kandi seemed to be distant from the other Housewives’ recent issues. In the latest episodes, Kandi appeared to be more focused on her family and marriage counseling with Todd. It was probably a warm-up for their spin-off.

According to StraightFromTheA, the nonstop conflicts between the couple regarding their finances, relationship, Mama drama and attempt for another baby led to Bravo’s trust in offering them their own show.
Kandi posted on Instagram some photos of her flawless headshot (she really looked amazing!) and her family’s vacation. The headshot was taken from an interview (confessional, maybe?) while the vacation would possibly be featured in the spin-off.

The official cast for “Meet the Tuckers” is Mama Joyce, the couple’s daughters namely Riley and Kaela and some crazy hilarious extended family members such as Kandi’s “The Old Lady Gang” aunts.

It is reported that Bravo airs three episodes on Sundays in summer 2015 and continues the season if the ratings are high. However, the couple’s co-star Moore and her “Life Twirls On” spin-off kept on having publicities but no specific schedule yet. On the other hand, ex-Housewife Kim Zolciak’s “Don’t Be Tardy” is obviously successful because of its return in July 2015.

Patti Stanger Claims She and Jill Zarin Saw Mario Singer Cheating on Then-Wife Ramona

Lesson to all would-be cheaters: If you're going to be unfaithful, don't let Patti Stanger see it.

On Thursday's Watch What Happens Live, the Millionaire Matchmaker star told a shocked Andy Cohen that she was a firsthand witness to Mario Singer stepping out on his now-estranged wife Ramona Singer.

Now, Stanger has exclusively talked to PEOPLE to fill in the details of the night when she "saw the whole thing go down." In fact, Stanger says she witnessed what she believes was the beginning of Mario's long-term affair with twenty-something Kyle "Kasey" Dexter.

When a WWHL caller asked Stanger, 53, if she'd seen any "warning signs" that the Real Housewives of New York star and her husband might be headed for divorce, Stanger said she saw one giant red flag: "I was there that night he cheated." 

"I saw him pick the girl," she told Cohen, 46.

Stanger told PEOPLE she'd been at another dinner with Ramona's former RHONY costar (and sometime nemesis) Jill Zarin before they both headed to the party and spotted Ramona, 58, and Mario, 61, engage in a flirt-off.

Very quickly, says Stanger, "I noticed that everybody there was a little too wasted. Everybody seemed a little too flirty – almost overtly."

"We went to the dessert table," she says, "and I noticed that Mario was talking to this young lady who was a little bit out of his league. She was very young. In her twenties."

"Ramona was watching," adds Stanger. "Ramona was mad."

Though Stanger says Ramona was also chatting up a younger man, her husband had already made a connection with Dexter.

"You could see he was a target, but that he was excited to be a target. They both went for each other and eyes locked," said Stanger.

"I just felt creepy about the whole thing. I feel sorry for her."

Jackie Gillies Talks New Ladies, New Fights in Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Melbourne"

The Real Housewives of Melbourne has been upgraded.

After Bravo aired the reality series from Down Under on Sunday afternoons last year, season 2 moves to Thursday nights, and star Jackie Gillies promises, "There's drama, there's tears, there's arguments – happy moments, too. There's a lot of comedy this season, I will say."

But, let's be honest, we don't come to our Housewives for laughs, we come for the glass-throwing antics.

With two new cast members entering the fray (regular Andrea Moss exited after season 1), Gillies promises there will plenty of fresh strife. Here are the highlights:  

One of Melbourne's most controversial figures in season 1 was Gina Liano, a heavily made up, foul-mouthed Housewife who never missed an opportunity to remind the ladies, "I'm a lawyer. I deal in fact."

"Gina and I definitely get into it this season," Gillies says. The previous bench mark? Liano accused Gillies, who is psychic, of talking to demons after Gillies insinuated Liano's long-term (now ex-) boyfriend was having an affair.

But that incident was on camera. As things heat up this season, Gillies says plenty of off-camera shadiness will occur: "What's frustrating to the other cast members is that Gina's not always herself on camera. She's very controlled."

She adds cryptically, "Sometimes when people are confronted with the truth, they don't know how to handle it."

When asked if Liano is a truth-teller, Gillies, responds, "Absolutely not."

Lynne Curtin’s Porn Star Daughter Alexa Was Arrested In '13 For Domestic Violence--Used A Knife & Tiki Torch

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Lynne Curtin’s porn star daughter Alexa was always known as a reality TV wild child — but her legal issues were worse than the world ever knew! RadarOnline.com has uncovered yet another of her past arrests, this time for felony domestic violence involving a knife and tiki torch.

The terrifying incident took place on July 13, 2013, when a then 20-year-old Alexa went over to her ex-boyfriend’s house in Westminster, California to rekindle their romance.

But when Michael Devecchio, her live-in boyfriend of three years, found out she may have “hooked up” with another guy, things got heated, according to the police report obtained by Radar.

When cops arrived on the scene, shirtless Devecchio was “visibly intoxicated” with watery eyes, the report said. And he told cops the former reality star was “drunk and out of control.”

Devecchio claimed he had “discovered a suspicious message on her Facebook profile” from another guy. So he contacted the other man who claimed he and Alexa had “sexual relations,” said the report.

Devecchio became “enraged” and confronted Alexa, now 22, about the alleged cheating, calling her a “liar” and “derogatory” names, according to cops. When he took her wrist and asked her to leave, the report claims, she refused to get up from his couch and instead grabbed a large kitchen knife and held it to her neck.

According to the report, “she held the knife up to her throat and threated to slice her own throat. She asked him if he wanted her to kill herself since he didn’t want to be with her.”

Because her ex was unsure if she was serious about killing herself or just doing it to garner “sympathy,” the ex report states, Devecchio grabbed her wrist and the knife dropped out of her hand.

Still, when he tried to get Alexa out of his house, she resisted by hitting and scratching him, per the report. She then allegedly took a tiki torch from an outside planter and threw it at him.

According to official incident documents, Michael walked away with two small bloody cuts on the back of his hand, two-inch scratches on his neck and chest, and a four-inch scratch down the middle of his chest — while the only injury Alexa sustained were “hickee” bruises on her neck.

When cops showed up, Devecchio told them she “acts that way usually.” In fact, he didn’t want police to arrest her and said he regretted calling them. He even backtracked, insisting Alexa never hit him.

But after a neighbor told cops he knew about their “constant fighting” and Alexa’s inconsistent statements to police, the responding officers put her in cuffs and charged her with spousal abuse.

A judge later granted an emergency restraining order against her, but she got lucky when the district attorney refused to prosecute based on insufficient evidence.

Melissa Gorga Reveals She Has Not Visited Teresa Giudice In Prison

The feud between "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continues. Melissa recently appeared on "Good Day New York" where she revealed that she has not seen or spoken to her sister-in-law since she began her 15-month prison sentence earlier this year after being charged with multiple counts of fraud in October 2014.

The pair have been at odds before, allowing many of their feuds to play out in front of Bravo's cameras. They appeared to have made amends during Season 6 of the Bravo series. Gorga even acted as a support system for Giudice as she enjoyed her final months of freedom. Unfortunately, it seems that reconciliation was short-lived.

During her appearance on the morning talk show, Melissa revealed that she had not yet visited with Teresa, saying her sister-in-law and co-star was most likely saving all of her visits for her husband Joe Giudice and her four children.

"I think she's going to want every visit to be with her children," she said. "It's obviously not easy being away from the children, but I think that's probably the hardest part."

Not only have the "Housewives" stars not had a recent face-to-face conversation, Melissa also shared that the only contact she's had with Teresa has been through her husband, Joe Gorga. The 36-year-old says Joe regularly receives emails and phone calls from his sister and shares the updates with her.

Resident Ratchet Queen Brandi Glanville Suffers Nip Slip On ‘RHOBH’ Finale


Eek! ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Brandi Glanville gave the viewers more than they asked for during the shows finale when her boob fell out of her top and exposed her nipple.

Brandi Glanville, 42, accidentally showed off her best assets on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills March 24 finale. While wearing a very low-cut black top without a bra, Brandi’s boob slipped out of the shirt without any warning. At first, she didn’t even notice!

Talk about a wardrobe malfunction. Brandi’s own boob made a cameo on the explosive RHOBH finale, and ,believe it or not, that was one of the “lighter” moments during the explosive episode.

It happened while she was talking to her pal and co-star, Kim Richards, who was polite enough to point out the slip before anyone else caught it. Phew!

Mauricio Umansky Demands That Wife Kyle Richards ‘Keep Her Distance’ From Troubled Sister Kim

Kyle Richards’ feud with her sister Kim has gotten so bad, her husband, Mauricio Umansky, is stepping in! Sources tell RadarOnline.com he wants her to “keep her distance” from her sister over issues involving their daughter, Alexia, being bitten by Kim’s pit bull.

Umansky is “disgusted with Kim’s antics and how ungrateful he thinks she has been towards Kyle,” an insider told Radar. “For years before RHOBH, the couple helped financially support Kim. From paying for car repairs to tuition bills, Kyle always gave money whenever she asked. This was before Mauricio became wildly successful. At the beginning, times were lean. Any extra money Kyle and Mauricio had went to Kim.”

But after their daughter, Alexia, was bitten by Kim’s dog, Kingsley, last year, the source said, “There was no offer for financial compensation. They wouldn’t have accepted it, but the gesture would have made a big difference.”

And their feud only escalated as the sisters played the blame game, the source says: “Kim even suggested that Alexia was at fault for the attack!”

Now, “Mauricio never wants to see Kim ever again,” said the source. “She has caused nothing but sadness and grief to Kyle.”

The sisters continue to fight over the sale of their late mother’s house, with Kim accusing Kyle of stealing profits from her, as Radar reported.

Meanwhile, their other sister, Kathy Hilton, is “refusing to take sides in the drama,” the source said. “Kim and Kyle have always had their issues; it goes back to their childhood. They have always been very competitive. Unless Kim apologizes to Kyle for her behavior, Mauricio will encourage his wife to keep her distance from her.”

Bethenny Frankel Splits From Boyfriend Michael Ceruss

Bethenny Frankel, who's written an upcoming romantic advice book called I Suck at Relationships So You Don't Have To, has split from her boyfriend Michael Cerussi III.

"Right now, I'm single," Frankel, 44, tells PEOPLE.

"I've been through a lot with exposing all my personal life so I'm not making any grand statements anymore," says The Real Housewives of New York City star of ending her relationship with the financier she was first spotted with on New Year's Eve in 2013. "But if there was somebody significant I would [say so]."

For now, Frankel, who is still locked in a bitter divorce battle with her husband Jason Hoppy, has no long-term plans for her romantic future. As she told Andy Cohen in an interview on Bravo's What What Happens Live: "I will never ever be legally married again." 

As for dating in the future, the reality star tells PEOPLE, "I've never dated anyone in this crazy world that I live in now and I don't think I would want to. I would only want to date someone low-profile."

Thanks To "Millionaire Matchmaker" Kenya Moore Really Has A Boyfriend

A Housewife's happily ever after, perhaps! The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore has Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger to thank for setting her up with her new boyfriend James.

The producer, 44, appeared on the Sunday, Mar. 22 episode of the dating show, where her fellow Housewife Cynthia Bailey wanted to set up her pal with a quality man.

During the episode, it was revealed that Moore has been proposed to a whopping (seven!) times, and none of those romantic scenarios panned out — largely due to her fear of abandonment. Matchmaking pro Stanger, however, found a potential solution to Moore's woes — first with an emotional counseling session, which was followed by a mixer with a packed room of eligible bachelors including one dashing gentleman named James.

As evidenced during Moore's dinner date at Sur with James, the two immediately hit it off and even exchange a cute kiss at the end of their flirtatious night out.

At the end of the episode, Bravo noted that the RHOA star was still dating her hunky match. Moore also officially broke her silence on her relationship status after Sunday's episode of Millionaire Matchmaker aired.
"Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives," the former beauty queen wrote, alongside a photo with her new beau. "Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness. #matchmaker #KingJames #FriendsFirst #MillionaireMatchmaker."

Ana Quincoces Arrested For Driving With Suspended , Blames Cockroaches

Ana Quincoces' time on The Real Housewives of Miami was brief, but her vacation time down in the Florida Keys was cut even shorter. First by cockroaches and then by the law. 

Quincoces had a suspended driver's license but continued to drive freely. Apparently she's been spending a lot of time down in the Keys, because Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies had previously informed her of her license status and that she shouldn't be driving. In fact, back on February 9, Deputy Bryan Cross had responded to a disturbance call in Key Largo and encountered Quincoces, according to the arrest report. Cross and a fellow deputy at the time informed her that her license was suspended, seized it, and told her not to drive.

Fast-forward to this past Sunday. Deputy Cross was doing a security check near Mile Marker 99 of U.S. 1 at 3:40 a.m. when he noticed a familiar Subaru SUV driving down the road. He recognized it as Quincoces' vehicle and pulled her over. 

Quincoces had still not fixed her license situation, and Cross asked her why she was driving when she had previously been told not to. Quincoces had no excuse and was arrested on misdemeanor charges and taken to a jail on Plantation Key for a few hours.  

However, according to Keys Info, Quincoces now has an excuse. She says she was staying in a home that had been listed by a realtor friend of hers, but found that the home was full of cockroaches. She said she just wanted to return home and didn't know she had a suspended license. 

The grand irony of Quincoces' apparent inability to understand basic law regarding driver's license suspension is that she is indeed a lawyer by trade. She's also a cookbook author and "chef," but who isn't these days? 

Quincoces, a 50 year old from Coral Gables, first appeared on the first season of Real Housewives of Miami as a guest, returned to the second season a main cast member, and was downgraded to recurring "friend of the Housewives" in season three. The show has not been officially cancelled or renewed by Bravo.

Lisa Rinna Responds To Kim Richards Drama: 'I'm Over It!'

If you feel like the drama involving Lisa Rinna and the Richards sisters has been going on forever, you're not alone.\

Lisa Rinna feels that way too, but for some reason, she can't stop talking about it!

It's been more than two weeks since the Lisa vs.Kim Richards brawl first aired (and it's been several months since it actually happened), but Lisa took to her Bravo blog yet again today to clear things for roughly the 4 billionth time.

You may recall that the situation heated up because of Kim spreading rumors that Harry Hamlin is cheating on Lisa.

Despite having already made her thoughts on that topic quite clear (via an airborne glass of wine) Lisa chose to write about it again today:

"Kim has still not apologized for her uncalled for behavior toward my husband," Lisa writes. "I do still have a lot to process and a lot has been left unresolved."

Despite her obvious ill will toward Kim, Lisa says she still wants to assist the other women in staging an intervention for her. She also feels however, that everyone should stop meddling in Kim and Kyle's lives.

Needless to say, Lisa is a bit...conflicted. Go to her Bravo blog to see if you can make more sense of it than we could. 

Kim wraps things up by promising that the "drama continues" on the upcoming reunion show that "you've heard so much about." Sounds like everyone should wear their finest wine-proof attire.

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online in time to get caught up for the finale and the epic throwdown of a reunion show.

Phaedra Parks Decides to File for Divorce from Apollo Nida

Phaedra Parks said that her estranged jailbird husband Apollo Nida‘s ultimate con may have been on her, on Sunday night’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

But it was an emotional trick, rather than a financial one, as viewers learned Parks had a strong prenuptial agreement in place.

During the episode, Parks sought advice from top Atlanta lawyer Ronne Kaplan on how to divorce Nida, who went to prison for bank fraud and identity theft.

During the emotional meeting, Kaplan asked Parks (herself an attorney) the obvious question: Why did she married Nida, who had already been behind bars before his most recent stint.

Even knowing Nida’s past, Parks sighed, “I married him because I thought he was a changed man; I married him because I knew that he loved me.

“Some people do change their lives and make a difference and I thought he was that person, but obviously he wasn’t. I stayed with him when people said I shouldn’t. I loved him.

Parks said she’d “believed that he wanted to be someone different,” sadly noting, “I chose to believe him and maybe he was conning me the whole time.”

The housewife told Kaplan that Nida had told her before reporting to prison that he wanted a divorce and that she wanted to make sure her interests were protected.

The attorney noted that the couple’s prenuptial agreement “looks airtight.

“Financially, you each walk away with whatever you had and whatever you earned during the marriage.”

But her lawyer said the couple’s two young sons were the big issue, and told her bluntly, “They need to have as much contact as possible with their dad.”

Parks said she wanted “to make it possible” but the federal prison in Kentucky where Nida was serving his eight-year sentence was hours away, which meant she’d lose money taking time off work.

New ‘RHONY’ Member Dorinda Medley Has A Connection To Both Ramona Singer And Heather Thomson

The new season of The Real Housewives of New York City will be a packed house. The cast photo and preview for season 7 shows that there will be eight starring housewives: Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Kristen Taekman, and Heather Thomson. In his latest Ask Andy video, executive producer Andy Cohen addressed concerns that having eight starring housewives in one show is just too much.
“You know people were freaking out because, ‘Oh my God, there’s eight housewives. Is that too many?’ For some reason, it just works. It works. It doesn’t feel like there’s too many women. You’re just kind of following wherever the action is. And you know everybody except Dorinda.”
Regarding Dorinda, Andy revealed that she had no problem being a part of the group since she already knew two of the housewives. Andy also talked about the return of Bethenny, who is back on the show after being away for three seasons.
“Dorinda fits right in because she’s old friends with Ramona. She knows Heather from the Berkshires. She’s got a huge house in the Berkshires. And so she fits in very quickly and easily. Bethenny obviously fits right in and so it just feels great.”
Dorinda’s profile on BravoTV.com describes her as a Manhattan socialite who has rubbed shoulders with British royalty and Hollywood celebrities. A mom of one, she has survived the demise of her first marriage and the death of her second husband.

Since both Dorinda Medley and Heather Thomson have a home in the Berkshires, perhaps there will be another group trip to the locale? In season 6, the women all went to Heather’s vacation home in the Berkshires. Not surprisingly, there was a lot of drama between the women on the trip, largely thanks to Ramona Singer.

Ramona complained about how Heather’s house just wasn’t up to par, especially since it lacked air conditioning, and dismissed the Berkshires as a place for people who can’t afford the Hamptons. Ramona even threw a wine glass at Kristen Taekman during a boat ride, splitting her lip. Kristen’s offense? Splashing some water on Ramona and getting her hair wet.

Ramona has since made up with Heather at least. On Friday, she tweeted a photo from Sonja’s premiere party for the show.

Kenya Moore Was ‘Very Nervous’ About Finding A Man on "Millionaire Matchmaker"

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey persuaded her friend Kenya Moore to hire Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger. Moore is 43-years-old now and as she says, is “very nervous about finding a mate.” She says she’s not the diva that men think she is. She also thinks men are intimated by her and her television persona. But she wants the search to end. 

Hopefully Cynthia Bailey won’t be joining Kenya on any of the dates. During Kenya's pre-date interview, Cynthia describes Kenya like this: “While she seems like a sexy mama...meanwhile at the ranch, there are so many layers to this (this being Kenya.)" We're no matchmakers but most men don't want to hear that a presumed diva has lots of layers. Just sayin.'

Melissa Gorga Opts for Silver in Latest HSN Jewelry Collection Set to Debut This Week

Who doesn't love a little bling from time to time? 

Melissa Gorga is satisfying our fix to sparkle with the second wave of her jewelry line, The Melissa Gorga Collection for HSN, which debuts on March 26 at Hsn.com. The feisty Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 35, delivers her new 18-piece set of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces galore, which all cost less than $70. 

"We had such success with the first collection that I really built upon that, and also listened to the feedback I got from my fans," Gorga told Us Weekly of her signature line. 

In an age where diamond and platinum jewels rule on the red carpet, going for more cool-toned jewelry was a no-brainer. "They wanted to see more silver, so I am giving them more silver," Gorga said.  

The fashion darling relied on her fans for aesthetic input, but also did her own research for inspiration. "I also like to make sure that my looks are on trend, so I look for inspiration from the high fashion runway shows," Gorga told Us. "I add my own bold twist to the design and aim to make it reasonably priced."  

On top of the wallet-friendly price, the fashion-forward accessories come with yet another perk — how does going from a business meeting straight to a hot date sound? "It’s very important to me to make sure the jewelry is versatile and can go from day to night," she said. "I really look for the pieces to fit into a woman’s lifestyle so you can go to the office, drop off the kids, go to a party and still be able to wear it."

Vicki Gunvalson Struggles As Cancer Treatment For Brooks Ayers Not Working

Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers are back on, but how much time do they have left? Her boyfriend tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that recent chemotherapy treatments to treat his “aggressive” cancer don’t seem to be having any effect.

As Radar previously reported, Ayers is battling Stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma, since a fall 2013 diagnosis.

“I am sick,” Ayers admitted in an exclusive interview. “I do feel bad, but it’s mind over matter a lot of times. You gotta stay the course.”

Most recently, that’s meant nearly six months of chemotherapy and a largely liquid-based diet. But unfortunately, Ayers said, so far his treatment hasn’t had much effect.

“When the test results came back, the numbers haven’t changed substantially,” he revealed. “They haven’t gotten worse, but they haven’t gotten better. That was kind of disheartening, to be honest with you.”

“I’m not so sure my body is responding to chemotherapy,” he admitted. “At least the cocktail that I was doing. I’m not sure it responded like it needed to.”

Now, Ayers says he’s faced with three options. The first is an “aggressive form of chemotherapy” that would mean three or four days a week of treatment every three weeks for a minimum of four months. Or, he could opt for a stem cell transplant, but there are no guarantees.

Finally, he says, Gunvalson’s fellow RHOC cast member Shannon Beador is helping him develop a holistic approach.

“Shannon Beador’s been very much in our corner and putting us in contact with a lot of unbelievable world-renowned holistic physicians based here in Irvine (California),” he said. “We’re exploring that and with that would come no chemo. It would be addressing and taking what I’ve been doing with the holistic diet and an infrared sauna.”

“It’s just assessing what my mentality, my body responds to and it’s been quite a daunting mental task,” he admits.

But through it all, Ayers has had on-off girlfriend Gunvalson, 52, solidly by his side. “She keeps me up and going and it’s been good rather than just routine, monotonous life — that’s not what we’re about,” he said. 

“So it’s been very good from that perspective.”

Camille Grammer Says 'My Cancer Is in Remission and I'm Doing Really Well'

One year and counting. That's Camille Grammer's mentality now that she's one year in remission after undergoing surgery for endometrial cancer at the end of 2013.

"I'm doing really well," she told PEOPLE on Friday while attending a charity event in Las Vegas for One Drop, an organization committed to providing worldwide access to clean water.

Now that she's in remission and no longer a primary member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Grammer's passion is focused on her job as the National Chair of the Foundation for Women's Cancer.

Flanked by good friends Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky in Las Vegas, Grammer, 46, spoke candidly about her battle with cancer, saying that she's glad she quit the Bravo reality show before her fight really began. 

"I don't think I could have filmed going through that," she said. "There's just no way."

It would be easy to get angry about her battle with the disease, but Grammar isn't going that route. She's trying to use it as a positive.

"God does things for a reason," she said. "It's very difficult to live anything so private like that in public but if I can use it as a platform to raise awareness … There are so many things bigger than ourselves out there. If I can use this to support anybody and to save lives in any way, oh my God, that's bigger than all of us. I feel blessed."

Grammer said she's in "a good place now" and doesn't miss being a regular cast member on The Real Housewives anymore.

"I love not being in the middle of the drama," she said, although she does make cameos from time to time. "It's nice to still be a part of the show to support Kyle. I really care about these girls and I miss them."

Bethenny Frankel Says She’ll ‘Never Get Legally Married Again’

“I will never get legally married again,” Bethenny Frankel admitted to Watch What Happens Live talk show host Andy Cohen.

It’s little wonder. The Real Housewives of New York star ended her almost two-and-a-half-year marriage with her estranged hubby Jason Hoppy, 44, in December 2012. Though the former couple settled their bitter custody battle over their daughter Bryn, 4, last June, their contentious divorce proceedings continue to grind on to this day.

“It doesn’t mean that I won’t commit to someone,” 44-year-old Bethenny noted. “I’m not jaded, I’m not bitter about love, I think there are amazing guys out there in the world—it’s none of that.”

Frankel then reiterated, “I will never, ever be legally married again.”

“Marriage is the Hotel California,” she also noted. “You can check out at any time but you can never leave.”
Just like RHONY, it seems.

“There was a point where I was a little embarrassed to be a Housewife,” she told Cohen. “I felt like it was a little, something to not be proud of. And there was a time that I felt, when I was in it, that it felt not what it started out as, and that’s why I walked away.”

“But now, coming back, I’m feeling proud to do it again, I feel like it is a different show and I feel like me coming back to this show this season has changed up the dynamic,” she continued. “It seems honest, it seems real, it seems a little bit old-school—that’s how it feels.”

Kyle and Kim Richards Reopen Old Wounds With Emotional "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Fight

The ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wrapped up their tumultuous Amsterdam trip with some shopping, dinner and Brandi Glanville taking home a 23-year-old Dutch boy. As one does.
Dubbed Amsterboy, the man was a friend of Lisa Vanderpump's son Max. "Of course, it's totally inappropriate," Lisa V. said. Brandi missed the dinner to go on the date. The ladies were relieved—"This only feels like a gift," Kyle Richards said.—and Yolanda Foster said Brandi was acting like a child. Why?

Because she was upset Lisa V. wasn't accepting her apology for the slap. You all remember the slap. Not the NBC series, the time Brandi smacked Lisa V. on a boat because she wanted to reenact The Love Boat or something.

"You can't do things and keep f---ing apologizing. It really upset me," Lisa V. told Brandi. "She always crosses the line…it's just totally un-f---ing-acceptable."

Once the women returned home it was business as usual. Sort of. Eileen Davidson helped her kid with homework, Lisa Rinna and Kyle met up to talk about Kim Richards and Lisa R.'s talk with Brandi about Kim, Kim visited Adrienne Malooof to talk about the trip and Brandi had a breakdown while getting a gold facial with Yolanda. As one does.

Brandi, who was upset because her father was in the hospital, told Yolanda she's sick of the lectures and the bulls---. She said she felt the ladies can say whatever they want about her, but she can't speak her truth. OK...

After talking to Lisa R., Kyle decided to invite Kim to her desert home—it is insanely beautiful, by the way—and while there the Richards sisters went at it as the dinner burned. Kyle told Kim that Brandi thinks she needs an intervention. Shouting ensued, then Kim went on about Kyle stealing her house. You'll recall the limo fight the sisters had at the end of season one where Kim told Kyle she stole her house.

"Kim, everything you say is a twist and a lie," Kyle said, pointing out inconsistencies about Kim's story.
"If Kim was a friend and not my sister, I probably would've given up on this relationship a long time ago," Kyle said in a confessional.

Spoiler alert: The Richards sisters are still not in a good place.

NeNe Leakes Drops $2.1 Mil On New Georgia Mansion

NeNe Leakes ain't the next Joan Rivers yet ... but she's acting like she's got that "Fashion Police" cash by snagging a $2.1 mil Georgia estate.  

According to our real estate sources ... NeNe plunked down $750k on the 9,511 sq. ft., 6 bed, 7 bath villa nestled in the swank gated Sugarloaf Country Club.

Apparently, between "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," her appearances and her HSN clothing line, she's doing more than fine ... and now, when she's not brushing up on fashion, she can hit the links and work on her swing.  

But we know who she'd really like to practice her swing on ... looking at you Cynthia.

Ramona Singer Opens Up About Dating After Divorce: "Don't Force Anything"

Ramona Singer isn't letting her divorce from husband Mario Singer get in the way of her living life to the fullest! Now involved with AOA Restaurant in New York City and creator of Ramona Pinot, the Real Housewives of New York City star is just getting started.

"Now that I'm single, I'm definitely out there more," she tells E! News exclusively. "I'm having fun."
The Bravo star opened up in her blog about her split from Mario after 20 years of marriage, letting fans know how hurt she truly was after keeping their marital issues so close to the vest, which was something that she didn't want to do because she prefers to talk about things in the open.

"Having your husband betray you is the worst feeling in the world, and I wish it on no one," Ramona confessed in her candid entry. "I feel like I was emotionally bruised for the past five months by Mario...I was in a fragile state."

She added, "Mario was extremely adamant about me not speaking about our relationship and his infidelity. This is so not who I am—I always speak freely on all subjects. I was allowing my husband to control my behavior."

But months later, she has not only found solace in life as a single woman but she has also found a solid support system in her group of closest pals.

"Life is good. I have great friends. I have friends that are married friends that are single. [I have] a lot of friends," she dishes. "I embrace all of their warmth and they embrace me. Considering all and all, I'm having fun."

And surprisingly enough, those pals include her reality TV co-stars, who, despite the drama, have been supportive throughout her relationship with Mario. She told Andy Cohen, "...All the women on the show, including LuAnn [de Lesseps], were supportive of my situation with Mario."

"Without them I would never have been able to handle what I was going through. I thank all my fellow Housewives for their support and continued support," she added.

Although she is still healing from her divorce, she isn't completely ruling out getting involved with someone. Right now, however, she is single and ready to mingle and even has some advice for her fellow single women out there!

"Just go with the flow and things will happen naturally," she advises. "Don't force anything."

Kandi Burruss Says Phaedra Parks Should Have Talked To Me Instead Of NeNe Leakes And Porsha Williams

The latest episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was probably a very hard one for Kandi Burruss to watch. That’s because a big part of Sunday night’s episode was about Kandi’s deteriorating friendship with Phaedra Parks.

Kandi tweeted her reaction to the episode, making clear that she’s not pleased with Phaedra’s behavior.
On the previous episode, Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes questioned to Phaedra why Kandi didn’t do anything to defend her when Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore brought up, during a group dinner, Apollo Nida’s accusation that she was cheating on him with a “Mr. Chocolate.” Phaedra herself questioned Kandi’s non-action.

The latest episode continued the talk about whether Kandi has been a true friend to Phaedra. In one scene, Phaedra tells NeNe that out of everyone in the group, she has been there for her the most. Phaedra, almost in tears, says that she thought it would’ve been Kandi who was most supportive because she has been there for Kandi.

In another scene, Kandi sits in Phaedra’s office to talk about what’s going on between them. Phaedra admits to Kandi that she thought that their friendship was tighter. With tears streaming down her face, Kandi tells Phaedra that she has been going through her own issues, namely the fact that her tour was canceled and she had to tell people they didn’t have jobs anymore.

While Kandi acknowledges that what Phaedra’s going through is a whole bigger situation, Kandi points out that Phaedra didn’t reach out to her, either, when the tour was canceled. Phaedra later tells the camera that Kandi was talking about a business deal that went wrong but she’s still a millionaire. Phaedra adds that she has a shortage of friends who she can count on, and that’s what she thought Kandi was.

In reaction to that, Kandi retweeted a fan’s tweet saying that Kandi wasn’t worried about the money she was losing but was worried about the people who were put out of jobs.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kandi wrote in a recent blog post that she has defended Phaedra and argued for her even against her own husband, Todd Tucker, who is good friends with Apollo Nida.

Does Phaedra still consider Kandi a friend now? During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in mid-October, 2014, Phaedra Parks was asked to quickly describe her The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars. For NeNe Leakes, Phaedra said, “Genuine. She has really been the most supportive through this whole situation.” As for Porsha Williams, Phaedra said that she’s a “survivor.”

When it came time for Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks smiled and said, “My buddy.” Shortly after that appearance, the cast went to the Philippines and filming for the seventh season ended around November. So it seems that at least from Phaedra’s perspective, they’re still friends. Yet, the truth about the current state of their friendship may very well come out on the upcoming Season 7 reunion filming.

Kim Richards ‘Finally Served’ With Court Papers in Dog Attack Lawsuit

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards can’t escape justice! Attorneys for a victim of one of her dog’s attacks had tried to serve her with a lawsuit for weeks, and RadarOnline.com has learned that they were finally successful.

“Kim Richards was finally served with the court papers on March 2,”Kay Rozario’s attorney, Bill Zuhdi, tells Radar. “She is required to answer no later than March 23, 2015.”

“Kay is extremely happy because it means that we are one step closer to justice being served,” he said.

However, the serving of court papers didn’t go without a hitch: A source close to the situation says that “after Kim has relentlessly dodged the process server, they were able to get the papers to her via one of her children, who answered the door.”

“Prior to that, Kim hid in her house trying to avoid the server and she would turn off all the lights when the server would ring the bell to deliver her with the court papers,” the source claims.

Kingsley, Richards’ pit bull, also previously attacked sister Kyle Richards’ teenage daughter, Alexia Umansky. As Radar reported, the canine was sent away as Richards mulled over the decision of whether or not to have him euthanized, but he is now back home in Beverly Hills with the 50-year-old reality star.

According to a source close to Rozario, “the worst part about all of this is that she never, ever apologized to Kay. Kim knows that she may have to pay for Kay’s pain and suffering as a result of this vicious attack.”

Rozario is also going after Evolution, the production company that produces RHOBH, for her injuries, is claiming that they were involved in “conspiring to cover up the attack.”

Claudia Jordan Says NeNe Leakes Loves to 'Play the Victim'

NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan may have looked — dare we say it? —almost friendly on last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, but this week’s tense counseling session was proof positive that things can change on a moment’s notice in the ATL. 

On Sunday, during a therapy session with the rest of the cast, NeNe made it clear that, despite it being her idea to gather all the girls to meet with Dr. Jeff, she wasn’t exactly open to the idea of mending fences.

When prompted to give her true feelings about the group dynamic — something that’s never been particularly difficult for the outspoken star — NeNe admitted to thinking that the rest of the cast was eager to steal her place in the spotlight. 

"I've been the longest in this group and every time somebody comes around, they come for me … this ain't no come at NeNe day,” NeNe told Claudia. “You're trying to be important in this situation and you're not important honey. Please." 

It seems as though Claudia wasn’t about to let NeNe get the best of her, claiming that NeNe’s desire to control the group dynamic was making her paranoid.

"NeNe wants to be the victim,” said Claudia. “Everyone's coming for her, everyone wants to be her friend, and this desire to be the head bitch in charge seems it's driving her crazy, actually."

Lynne Curtin’s Porn Star Daughter Nabbed By Police

After nearly five year’s of living out of the public eye, it looks like Alexa Curtin hasn’t curtailed her hard partying ways. The former Real Housewives of Orange County wild child turned porn star was arrested last year, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

The police saga started when Lynne Curtin’s daughter, then 21, was drinking beer on the beach with a group of friends July 3, according to the citation obtained by Radar.

She was caught on security cameras by police at Pier Plaza in Huntington Beach, according to the court documents.

Alexa was originally given a misdemeanor ticket and ordered to show up to court a month later – but she didn’t.

So her failure to appear resulted in a bench warrant for her arrest on August 29, according to court documents, with bail set at $500.

But, lucky for Alexa, who often appeared alongside her big sis Raquel drunk and out of control on the Bravo reality series, the warrant was recalled when she made it to court September 12. She ultimately avoided a conviction during arraignment by agreeing to a Deferred Entry of Judgment — meaning she pleaded guilty, but the court did not enter a judgment.

But with that deal came conditions, including completing a 6 to 12-hour educational program and staying out of trouble with the law. She also provided a DNA sample, photograph and prints for the state and local DNA Database.

And if she didn’t complete the DEJ program, the two charges against her each held six months in jail.

Alexa, who told her mom she only did porn to get her boobs and nose fixed, then got herself in more legal hot water when another bench warrant was issued on December 15. Bail was set at $10,000 when she failed to make a mandatory appearance in court — again. When she made it to court February 3, the warrant was recalled. Even though she didn’t complete the DEJ program requirements, she pleaded guilty to downgraded charges of infractions.

By the looks of her most recent – and sexually explicit – Facebook message, her days in court are officially over: “The feeling when you leave court and your [sic] finished with everything you had to do,” she wrote March 10. “…I put that next to the feeling of sex and eating in n out [sic].”

NeNe Leakes Attacked During Therapy With ‘RHOA’ Costars

NeNe Leakes‘ grand idea of sending all the ladies to therapy seems to be backfire when she gets slammed for her efforts in a sneak peek of the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

As the women from the ATL sit down for counseling it quickly turns against the one cast member who wanted to try and play peacemaker.

“This must be a takedown of NeNe,” the highest paid woman in the entire Housewives franchise says as she is seen storming out of the room.

Leakes’ fighting seems to be with Cynthia Bailey, who claims the historically bad feelings are Leakes’ fault. “Once the rift started NeNe went above and beyond to destroy the friendship,” she claims.

The therapist reprimands Bailey, and tells her: “Don’t be sarcastic and really listen,” but to no avail, as the two women continue to bicker.

“Girl please, don’t’ go there,” Leakes tells Bailey, who asks: “Go where?”

Losing her patience, Leakes lashes out at her and retorts: “You are a mean girl, you found your voice yet?”

Bethenny Frankel Divorce Update: Jason Hoppy Requests Emergency Hearing

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have had one of the nastiest divorces in reality television history, fighting over their apartment, money and their young daughter. In the latest round, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that their battle exploded on Wednesday when Hoppy’s attorneys called an emergency session with the judge.

“Jason’s attorneys requested the emergency conference call this morning after a moving crew showed up at the apartment he shares with Bryn and started removing Bethenny’s belongings,” a source close to the situation told Radar.

The $5 million apartment has been at the center of their split squabbles, with Hoppy refusing to move out and a judge ordering that neither party could buy or sell the place until all of the divorce details are finalized.

“Jason’s attorneys told the judge that Bethenny has bought a new apartment and she was taking her remaining things out of the Tribeca place. The problem was, Bryn was home and the moving crew scared her,” the source explained. “She started hysterically crying and Jason was furious so he immediately called his lawyers, who called the judge.”

The source told Radar that a conference call ensued and the judge was furious with Frankel for “exposing Bryn to these fights her parents still have.”

The meltdown came on the heels of lingering tensions from last summer, said the source.

Frankel, who has returned  to The Real Housewives of New York City, infuriated Hoppy last summer while she was in the Hamptons, the source claimed.

“Bethenny spent the summer in the Hamptons and had her assistant get Bryn and bring her out to the beach,” claimed the source. “This made Jason mad that she didn’t do it herself.”

Kim Richards' Child Admitted To Pyschiatric Facility

The pressure keeps building for Kim Richards. As the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star continues to field accusations about her own sobriety and mental health, RadarOnline.com has learned that one of her children has been admitted to a psychiatric facility!

Richards is mom to Kimberly, 21, Chad, 22, Whitney, 24, and Brooke, 29, with exes Monty Brinson and Gregg Davis. Radar has chosen not to identify the individual receiving treatment.

The adult “was admitted over the weekend to a psychiatric facility in the South Bay area of Los Angeles,” an insider told Radar.

“This wasn’t an involuntary psychiatric hold, but it came very close,” the source said. “[The individual] has battled with depression for years and it’s unclear at this point how long they’ll have to remain in the hospital. This is obviously very, very hard for Kim.”

“While everyone hates to see a child continue to struggle, Kim’s friends are even more concerned for her well-being,” the source said.

Though sister Kyle “has always been there to support Kim in times of need,” according to the source, the pair’s recent feuding, as reported by Radar, “has really taken a toll on her.”

Kim and Kyle have been at odds ever since her pit bull, Kingsley, bit Kyle’s daughter, Alexia, earlier this year.

As Radar exclusively reported last week, the sisters’ fighting erupted during taping of the RHOBH reunion.

In addition, ongoing questions about Kim’s sobriety have been lingering since she appeared on recent episodes of RHOBH, slurring her words. She admitted to taking a pain pill prescribed to her cancer-stricken ex-husband, Monty.

Said the source, “To say people are concerned about Kim is an understatement. She is extremely vulnerable right now and is just existing on autopilot.”
