Porsha Williams vs. Cynthia Bailey on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Porsha and Cynthia have not been quick to get along on any recent seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and even though it seemed as through they were finally back to normal, tensions erupted again over Porsha getting in a physical fight with Cynthia while out on a boat trip (terrible idea) with almost all of the Housewives. And even though Cynthia didn't really seem married to the idea of being on the boat together with everyone, Kenya put it together, getting very protective over the guest list. But even though they were getting along before the event, it was actually Porsha, not her friend Shamea, who caused the most trouble.

Throughout the trip, most of the ladies were imbibing more than a few drinks, trying to egg on the "bachelorette party" theme of the party with good food, dancing, and a good time. And once a little tipsy, Porsha made a mistake: saying a joking "Whatever, b*tch" to Cynthia, who was immediately offended by the remark.

Cynthia, who, to be fair, certainly does use the word in an affectionate way, claimed that modifying it by saying "Whatever" made the whole thing "dismissive" and insulting. And even though Porsha did have a point that it was pretty clear that she was joking, she kept refusing to apologize, which would have instantly diffused the conflict.

And, of course, things got even worse when a physical scuffle started. Finger pointing very quickly turns into a fight, which is, of course, how Porsha found herself getting kicked out of the cast in the fist place, when she grabbed Kenya during the reunion.

And it looks like the next episode will feature Cynthia and Porsha pairing up again, so she wasn't immediately kicked off of Season 8. Hopefully she can learn how to apologize by the time they meet up again, and Cynthia realizes that the jape was meant affectionately, because these two do not need to be exchanging any more blows on Real Housewives of Atlanta.
I know she's still young, but the more Porsha gets into physical fights, messes with dudes who have scandalous backgrounds and continues to flaunt her body like that's all she has to offer, the more you understand why ex-husband Kordell left her.

Kim Richards Not Filming 'RHOBH' Season 6 For Free

Kim Richards is not working on the upcoming season 6 of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" for free.

Earlier this month, Life & Style published a report claiming that Richards is not getting paid for any of her appearances in the new installment of the Bravo series. Sources told the magazine that she found her way back to the show after agreeing to work for free.

"Kim wasn't paid a dime to return to 'RHOBH,'" an insider said. "She was desperate to get back on TV to restore her reputation."

A few days after the story was published online, Richards' sister Kathy Hilton took to Twitter to deny the report, writing: "Why would my sister @KimRichards11 work for free? I know we have a couple of snakes in the woodpile ,yet this is beyond!"

After starring as a main cast member on "RHOBH" for five years, Richards was fired from the show a few weeks after she was arrested for public intoxication, battery and resisting arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April.

Last month, Radar Online broke the news that Richards is returning to the franchise after a source told the website that she was spotted filming with a Bravo crew outside of Palm Springs. Her comeback was then confirmed by the trailer for the new season.

While some fans are happy about Richards' return, there are also some who criticize her for her decision to come back, believing that she's not yet well enough to appear on the show.

However, Hilton appears to believe that it's okay for Richards to be back on the reality show because she's all better. On Wednesday, Nov. 25, Hilton retweeted a Twitter post expressing the belief that Richards got the help that she needed, and that's why she's back on the show.

Tamra Judge Undergoes Cosmetic Procedure With Dr. Paul Nassif's Help
Things are getting real for Dr. Paul Nassif!

The Botched doctor recently had a Bravo star step into his private Beverly Hills office. But instead of wanting something fixed or repaired, Tamra Judge simply wanted a minor procedure that would target her lips.

"I am 48 years old and I feel like things are starting to fall and I don't necessary want to get the surgery," the Real Housewives of Orange County star told E! News exclusively. "I don't do fillers. I've done them before and it was kind of a disaster."

She continued, "It just didn't look good so I don't want that. I don't want duck lip. I don't want my lips to enter the room before me. I just want it to look a bit more youthful, more fuller."

Don't worry, Tamra. You are in good hands!

In his minor procedure, Dr. Paul uses Juvederm to "gently, conservatively" put some filler in both sides of Tamra's lips.

Within a matter of minutes, viewers can see a difference without any bruises or visible swelling.

Kim Fields Admits 'I've Lost Myself' While Becoming Mom
Kim Fields doesn't have a lot of female friends.

The former Facts of Life star, 46, has openly admitted she was interested in joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta because she hoped it would bring her friendships outside her close-knit family.

"Now how in the world can you live without a girlfriend? Who do you tell your secrets to?" RHOA's Phaedra Parks asks new castmember Fields in a preview clip exclusive to PEOPLE.

"For me, I don't have, you know, the hangout girlfriends," Fields responds in the clip, which will air Sunday. 

Fields goes on to admit (to Parks' shock) that she doesn't go and get her nails done or have spa days.

"Oh my god. Why? Are you kidding me? As long as I don't look or smell homeless, I'm good," Fields says.

In a to-camera confessional, Parks quips, "as a church going sister, I would think she would know cleanliness is next to godliness."

"I don't have a Kim happy place for Kim," Fields says. "Other than my work, my kids, my husband."

The actress – who is raising sons Sebastian, 8, and Quincy, almost 2, with husband Christopher Morgan – asks Phaedra how she found her happy places.

"I didn't marry young. I knew who I was. I knew what I liked to do," Parks says. "I didn't want to lose myself in my marriage and my kids. So, I get my nails done every week. I get my hair done every week. You gotta get that time."

Vicki Gunvalson Tells Andy Cohen: "If I Had to Do It All Over Again, I Would Not Have Divorced Donn"
Hello . . . Donn. Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson revealed during her tell-all, one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen on Monday, Nov. 23, that while she is over her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers, she cannot seem to let go of her ex-husband, Donn Gunvalson

Gunvalson, 53, has been on a very public tear against Ayers after he recently copped to fabricating cancer documents. "He said, 'You'll never have access to my medical records,'" Gunvalson told the Watch What Happens Live host. "It was another red flag." 

Ayers owned up to faking documents after a rep from City of Hope hospital told Us Weekly earlier this month that he was never a patient at its cancer-treatment facility. 

"Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to 'prove' to the world that I, in fact, have cancer," Ayers told E! News on Nov. 11. "What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki's knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest. I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren't true simply for a 'story line' for the show."

Vicki, for her part, has claimed that she was duped by Ayers and had nothing to do with his cancer lies. In order to prove her point, she even provided email exchanges between her and her ex-boyfriend. "It means I am not in on this, right?" she said. "He had to orchestrate some crazy-ass chain of lies in order for all of this to make sense. He brought his work, friends, me, and the [Housewives] cast into this."
While they were together, she fought to see the papers and for Ayers to prove his point. "Every night I fought with him. Every night," she shared. In fact, there were instances when she herself would confront Ayers about his sickness. Gunvalson recalled how she would say, "Brooks, what's going on? Do you have cancer? I don't get what's going on here."

Kyle Richards Talks Kim's Alcohol Abuse On 'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills'
Over the seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, drama between the Richards sisters has been running rampant. As if the franchise needed even more confrontation, Kim and Kyle Richards have brought familial drama to RHOBH since Day One. On one hand, this dynamic is entertaining. On the other hand, it's an entirely different relationship level that when it's bad, you're essentially watching a family fall apart. One of the things that has drawn the women apart is Kim Richards personal struggles with addiction, which have been made public throughout the seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On the RHOBH special, which highlighted Season 1 of the franchise, Kyle Richards opened up more about her sister's alcoholism, revealing just how bad things got during the first season — specifically, limogate.

In one of the most iconic, and heartbreaking, scenes in Housewives history, Kim accused her sister of stealing her house, while Kyle accused her sister of being "sick and an alcoholic." For both women, it was a low spot to relive during the reunion, but they seemingly were able to put their differences aside and work through things. Knowing that things haven't necessarily been smooth for the women since is sad, but as a fan of the show, we didn't even know how bad things were between the sisters until Kyle, and the other women, opened up about it on the special.

According to Kyle, Kim's drinking has been kept a secret by the family for a while. Kim had been sober for some time, but throughout the season, Kyle started becoming suspicious that Kim was drinking again. In certain moments, like the dinner in New York City when Kyle and Camille Grammer go head-to-head, you can tell that Kyle is cautious of her sister's sobriety, purely by the way she interacts with her. Taylor Armstrong also talked about Kim's drinking on the special, claiming that there were small hotel liquor bottles empty in Kim's room.

During the special, producers said they were aware that Kim was hiding her drinking. At the final party of the season, producers claimed that Kim was in a limo by herself, late to Taylor's birthday party, because her manager was trying to sober her up. In another "unseen moment," Kyle tells Kim that she was no longer going to "help" Kim because she didn't stay "OK."

Kim has been honest about her struggle with alcohol telling Dr. Phil, "I am an alcoholic," and speaking about her relapse in the April 2015 interview. "I did have drinks a couple other times over the past few months. It was wine. I was ashamed to say anything at the reunion, embarrassed," she admitted. "I was angry and frightened and I was scared. I knew what I had done ... None of this would have happened if I didn’t drink."

Sheree Whitfield Disappointed By NeNe Leakes' Exit From 'RHoA'
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Sheree Whitfield admitted that she's quite saddened by NeNe Leakes' departure from the Bravo series.

In a recent interview with The Daily Dish, Whitfield revealed that she would have liked the chance to speak with Leakes in the current season 8 of the reality show. But since Leakes announced her exit from the series over the summer, that potential conversation between them has become less likely.

"I was a little disappointed because I've always said I would definitely like to be back on the show when NeNe is there just so we can see how we've grown [and if] we're we able to move forward, or are we still gonna be in the same place ... four seasons ago," Whitfield said. "That whole dynamic would be interesting."

But should the conversation happen, considering the bad blood between the two ladies in the past, the 45-year-old fashion designer hopes it would be grown up. "I hope we would be able to sit and have a civilized conversation... and maybe have some laughs," she said.

Why Bravo Picked Potomac for the Newest 'Real Housewives
Much like a photoshopped Tinder profile pic, America’s introduction to Potomac, Md., might have been just a tad misleading.

Viewers watching the promotional trailer for Bravo’s upcoming “Real Housewives of Potomac” could be forgiven for assuming that the Washington suburb was packed with nightclubs and other hotspots.
That’s not exactly the Potomac that residents would recognize.

So what’s it really like? Residents describe it as a quiet little hamlet, a bedroom community for Washington’s downtown bigshots who favor having a little land to spread out compared to the denser, close-in ‘burbs. It’s got a small cluster of mom-and-pop shops and offices, but not much nightlife to speak of. Once a rural retreat, the area saw a rush of development in the 1980s and 1990s.

“People who come from other bedroom communities, like Greenwich, are surprised — they might expect something older,” says Bill Moody, a co-founding partner of  Washington Fine Properties. “It’s a quaint village that doesn’t try to compete with city amenities — it’s never going to have its own Kennedy Center, because it’s part of that community already.”

Potomac has one element, though, that makes it prime territory for some Real Housewifery: it’s suuuper-wealthy. It regularly makes lists of wealthiest zip codes, and according to Forbes, the median home price is just under $1.2 million. The trailer for the show at least captures area’s country-clubby, equestrian flavor, with its shots of sprawling green.

Setting the show in the close-in suburbs was seen as a way for Bravo to have a second shot at the D.C. market. The network’s first effort at setting the show in Washington proper, 2010’s one-and-done “Real Housewives of D.C.,” was an unquestioned failure. The constraints of official Washington — clients, constituents, etc. — kept the onscreen behavior just a tad too proper to achieve Maximum Housewife.

As “Real Housewives” exec producer Andy Cohen promised during a recent visit to Washington, this cast will be all Bravo and no CNN. “Unlike the DC Housewives, this series is staying far away from the political drama,” he said.

Another reason to set the show in the relatively unknown ‘burb: even to those viewers unfamiliar with Maryland geography and culture,  “Real Housewives of Potomac” just sounds ritzier than “Real Housewives of Silver Spring.”

Potomac Chamber of Commerce president Adam Greenberg says neighbors have had mixed reactions to the news that their community’s national name recognition is about to soar higher than a Housewife’s stiletto. “I’ve heard everything from ‘I’m moving’ to ‘Bring it on — it will be fun,'” he says.

Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas Argue About Marriage Woes: 'Maybe I'm Just Not in Love'
Things are looking rough Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas' marriage.

In a clip for Sunday's Real Housewives of Atlanta, the couple has a major confrontation about their relationship – and where it is headed.

Thomas says that the couple's work lives have been the priority over their relationship, while Bailey says there is a "disconnect" between them that they need to address because they "can't keep going like this."

"Our problem is we made no time for each other," says Thomas, going on to blame his wife for that. 

Bailey, 47 responds that she's sacrificed for the relationship, uprooting herself from New York to be with her husband.

"I just know that I'm unhappy. What I equate to being unhappy is, 'Well, maybe I'm just not in love with him anymore."

Thomas, 55, pauses before saying he wants to know one thing.

"When did you stop loving me?" he asks.

The couple, who celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary over the summer, have faced rumors of infidelity after a video surfaced online of Thomas getting close with another woman. Bailey told PEOPLE over the summer they were working through any marriage problems they had.

"The show has more than tested our relationship, but I think we're good," she told PEOPLE. "And hey, God forbid we don't make it, we know we tried! We can walk away with no guilt because we know we tried it in ever way."

Shereé Whitfield Talks About Real Housewives of Atlanta Return, Kenya Moore Feud and Her Love Life
Shereé Whitfield helped bring the drama when she returned to Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta and there appears to be no love lost between her and co-star Kenya Moore, who she says has "no class."

The 45-year-old appears on season eight, which began two weeks ago, after being away for three years. She and Moore, 44, got into a confrontation over their unfinished homes, which are located near each other.

"Let me be very clear, the word 'friend' is a big word with lots of meaning. I did not have any sort of friendship with her prior to the show, aside from a couple quick passings via mutual friends," Shereé told E! News exclusively. "She has no class to have said what she has said, especially to someone she doesn't know very well."

"Good thing for her, I am an entirely different woman than I was when I first started the show," she said.
Shereé said she is "enjoying this season of being back where I started."

"We are a very diverse cast of strong personalities, but at the end of the day we have one thing we are looking out for—ourselves," she told E! News. "There are many surprises coming from me in coming episodes!"

Moore talked about Shereé in a post on her Bravo blog.

"Now, I don't count someone else's money," she wrote. "However, Shereé chose to purchase an existing home and tear it down to then build a custom 16,000+ square foot mansion with cash—and that's her business. With that said, it becomes the City of Atlanta's business when the build takes over four years, making it an eye sore for the neighbors and a nuisance by bringing property values down."

"When I stated the obvious ongoing issues, Shereé took to unnecessary jabs at my home," she said. "Things escalated from there because I touched on a sensitive subject. We are both strong women and prideful. I could have taken the high road and simply offered to start a Kickstarter campaign for her to finish building her house. Sheree came for me...what did you expect from Twirl?"

Shereé told E! News that when she purchased the lot for her family home, she "thought it would all flow and be done in no time."

"However, that could be farther from the truth, especially when you are a perfectionist," she said. "Then there is the contractors and everyone trying to take advantage of you."

Kyle Richards: We Won't Hide Alcohol From Sister Kim
Kyle Richards does not see any looming danger now that her sister Kim is back on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' despite the fact that there's booze on the set.

Kenya Moore On Attacking Sheree Whitfield Over House: ‘I Was Just Delivering The News’
Kenya Moore's first encounter with Sheree Whitfield in the Season 8 premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is a moment we'll never forget. What started as Sheree welcoming Kenya to the neighborhood upon hearing about the close proximity of Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor, quickly turned into a shade match between the two 'Wives.

So does Kenya think she was a little too hard on Sheree, someone she had only met a couple of times before? Not at all, according to what she said during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night. "I don't think I went hard on Sheree. I think that I was just answering the questions that were asked," Kenya said. "Even on [Sunday night's] episode, we saw Kandi talk about Porsha's guy dating some transgender [woman]. We've heard girls talk about other girls and deliver the news. I was just delivering the news."

In other words, don't shoot the messenger — especially when she delivers the news with a twirl.

IRS Hits Joe and Teresa Giudice with $551K Tax Lien
Just as "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Joe and Teresa Giudice squared away the foreclosure threat on their Montville Township mansion, the Internal Revenue Service has slapped the couple with a $551,563 tax lien, according to documents obtained by NJ Advance Media. 

The tax lien, filed with the Morris County Clerk on Oct. 21 in both Joe and Teresa's names, reveals unpaid tax bills for nine years spanning 2000 to 2013. These include the years for which Joe Giudice was previously charged for failing to file his taxes as part of a 41-count indictment in 2013. 

This history here is knotty: In 2013, the federal government charged Joe with failure to pay his taxes on nearly $1 million of income between 2004 and 2008. (Teresa, who is currently serving a 15-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Conn., did not face tax charges.) 

As part of his plea bargain with the U.S. Attorney, Joe pleaded guilty to one count of failing to make a tax return and was sentenced to 12 months in prison, to run concurrently with his 41-month sentence for bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. He reports to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix early next year to serve his sentence, after which he faces the possibility of deportation to his native Italy.

Meghan King Edmonds Reacts to Brooks Ayers' Cancer Documents Lie: "It Wasn't Easy Exposing" Him
Is Meghan King Edmonds ready to move on? The Real Housewives of Orange County newcomer, who accused Brooks Ayers of lying about his cancer throughout the most recent season of the series, addressed his apology on Wednesday, Nov. 11, in which he confessed to fabricating cancer treatment documents from City of Hope hospital.

"Now it's time to focus our energy on helping the survivors and victims of cancer," Edmonds, 31, the wife of baseball player Jim Edmonds, told Entertainment Tonight. "There is so much work to be done to help those suffering. It wasn't easy exposing a lie about something that is so important to so many of us. It is time for all of us to move on and get to work in a positive way to help in the fight."

A rep for City of Hope hospital confirmed to Us Weekly on Tuesday, Nov. 10, that there was never a patient by the name of "David Brooks Ayers" treated at its cancer facility in Duarte, Calif. Ayers came forward one day later and confessed to fabricating the documents.

"Words cannot express the deep regret that I have in fabricating documents to 'prove' to the world that I, in fact, have cancer," Ayers told E! News on Nov. 11. "What I did was wrong and inexcusable. I acted alone, without Vicki's knowledge, to produce documents for a reality TV show in hopes of putting doubts about my cancer to rest. I never intended to disclose my actual medical records or details about my private and personal medical history, thus the rationalization of presenting documents that weren't true simply for a 'storyline' for the show."

Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan Will All Be Back Fulltime On 'Real Housewives of New York'
No need to get Ramotional: The Real Housewives of New York City is back in full-swing and despite recent reports, everybody (who hasn't announced they're leaving the show) will return, including Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps, Carole Radziwill, Bethenny Frankel and Dorinda Medley.

A source told us filming has begun on season eight of the Bravo reality series. Page Six reported Sonja, Ramona and Luann were going to go to pay per scene for their roles, but our source told us everyone is happy with their contracts. E! News has also learned a new cast member, Juliana Weinstein, has also started filming. Another source confirmed veteran cast members were stalled in negotiations, so the other newer cast members got a jump on filming. And don't fret, Bethenny is definitely bringing it. Our source said she's not holding back and is already calling people out on their stuff.

These rumors are nothing new. Countess Luann was demoted from full-time Housewife to "friend" back in season six, yet she still had quite a presence before moving back to a full-time Housewife in season seven. Plus rumors about Ramona having a recurring status with the show also circulated back before season seven started, but she still had quite a lot of screen time last season.

Both Ramona and Luann are original cast members. Sonja joined the show during season three.

Heather Thomson and Kristen Taekman are not returning to RHONY. Kristen told E! News she was going to focus on her business ventures. "My experience during my time on RHONY was fantastic and I made some great new friends," Kristen told E! News in a statement. "At this time in my life, I have decided to concentrate on my family and my new business ventures Pop Of Color nail polish and Last Night's Look, my fashion blog. I will remain a Housewife and part of an amazing franchise forever and that is what is important."

Kyle Richards: RHOBH Costars Questioning "Exactly How Sick" Yolanda Foster Is
Hot on the heels of Brooks Ayers' fake cancer document scandal, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has revealed that Yolanda Foster's struggle with Lyme disease is also now facing some scrutiny.

Richards sat down with ET to talk Season 6 of her hit reality TV show and revealed that Foster's illness, which was diagnosed in 2012, becomes a major focal point of the series.
"I think for a lot of people it's very confusing," Richards told the outlet. "A lot of the things she's gone through and the treatments she's done, for some of the cast members they were questioning exactly what she was doing and exactly how sick she was. It was not a good situation," she continued.

While she wouldn't go into the specifics, Richards insisted some things which will become apparent during the next season of the show, gave rise to confusion among certain members of the cast.

"Some things came up made some of the Housewives question exactly what was really going on," Richards teased, refusing to be drawn any further on the potential drama.

For her part, Foster has described living with the disease as an "unknown hell," and recently revealed that two of her children, Bella and Anwar Hadid, were also suffering from the condition.

During an emotional speech at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala last month, Foster vowed to fight for a cure to make sure her kids don't have to suffer as she has.

"I will walk to the end of the earth to find a cure so that you can live a healthy life that you deserve," she said. "No child should suffer in the way that you do."

Joanna Krupa Sues Florida Strip Joint For Using Her Image
A Florida strip club used a racy picture of Joanna Krupa in its advertising, and she’s none too happy about it.

The former “Real Housewives of Miami” star, 36, recently sued the Pompano Beach club Diamond Dolls for using her image without her permission, reports TMZ.

In the suit, the model alleges that the strip club used a topless photo of her to hawk its happy hour specials on its Instagram page in 2013.

According to her lawyers, the unlawful use of her image has both harmed her reputation and caused serious emotional distress.

Krupa’s representatives have yet to return a request for comment.

‘RHOC’ Producers Didn’t Buy Brooks Ayers’ Cancer Lies

Vicki Gunvalson may claim to have been clueless about her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers‘ cancer lies throughout the last season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but everyone else knew what was going on— including the show’s production team! can reveal that Bravo producers knew Ayers’ stories were shady while they were filming earlier this year.

“The crew would go to film outside the hospital for an hour or so while Brooks was inside,'” a show insider told Radar. “When he came out, he would refuse to talk about the ‘treatment’ he had just undergone. He couldn’t answer anyone’s questions.”‘

“Everyone knew he was lying about the whole thing. He didn’t have anyone fooled!”

As Radar previously reported, the City of Hope hospital in Duarte, California, denied ever having had a patient by the name of David Brooks Ayers after the reality star, 48, came forward with alleged medical documents from the facility.

He finally fessed up to “fabricating” documents, calling his actions “wrong and inexcusable.”

Despite all the evidence stacked against him, Ayers is still insistent he has cancer.

“Who would ever question somebody with cancer?” he asked Bravo honcho Andy Cohen during his one-on-one interview Thursday night.

Amber Marchese Slams Dina Manzo: ‘She Is Twisted, Disgusting & Evil!’
It’s no secret that Amber Marchese and Dina Manzo are far from friends.

But the feud that ignited on the last season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has just exploded!

As exclusively reported, Marchese quit the hit Bravo show— and her husband Jim confirmed she would keep in touch with former castmates Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita.
But now, the 38-year-old mother of two tells Radar she has no interest in giving Manzo a heads up about her exit.

“No, she not even worth it. She is so twisted and disgusting. She doesn’t even deserve that,” Marchese said. 
“She’s such a hypocrite. She hurts and destroys and she is just evil and dark inside.”

Despite their bad blood, Marchese claims Manzo still tries to reach out.

“Dina literally texts me all the time,” she reveals. “I’m like, ‘Go Away! Get away from me! Don’t f***ing text me. Delete my number!’ We will never cross paths again.”

Last year, Marchese ripped the 43-year-old party planner on her blog for verbally attacking her hubby Jim.
But there’s more drama between the two women than even the Bravo cameras captured.

“Dina and I hate each other,” Marchese says. “That has to do with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was friends with Jim and I and [he] was married. It’s just awful.”

Vicki Gunvalson on Brooks Ayers' Confession: "I Hate Him, I Hate Him With Everything In Me"
Vicki Gunvalson is not in a “woo hop!” mood. The Real Housewives of Orange County star told Extra’s Mario Lopez that she “hates” her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers. Her strong words come after Us Weekly confirmed that Ayers lied about seeking cancer treatment at City of Hope Medical Center in Durate, Calif.

"I'm completely shocked. I've seen the bills, I went to City of Hope,” Gunvalson recalled, revealing that she even waited for hours for her ex at the hospitalduring one alleged chemo treatment. "He was there all morning so how do you think anything other than he's getting chemo? You go to City of Hope because you have cancer, not because you have nothing else to do during the day."

Gunvalson, who finally confessed during the RHOC reunion special that in her “gut” she felt Ayers was lying, told Lopez that it took time for her to realize things didn’t match up. "I'm guilty of loving him and believing him. Who hasn't believed someone that you loved?" Gunvalson admitted. "And why would you lie about cancer when I've had three friends die of it in the last two years? I had my dearest friend just die of stomach cancer."

Gunvalson is also upset that her costars charged that she was “in on a scam.”
“My life is so abundant, I didn't need to make a fake storyline, and I sure as hell wouldn't make it up about Brooks,” Gunvalson explained. “As God is my witness, I would never want to make something up like this; it's actually quite sick. I'm embarrassed…I want to tell the girls I'm sorry."

As for Brooks?

“Karma,” Gunvalson said. “I hate him, I hate him with everything in me, and I don't hate people, but I believed him, I trusted him, I defended him, took a bullet for him when people didm't like him."

Hospital Spokesperson Says Brooks Ayers Was Never Treated for Cancer at City of Hope
Looks like Brooks Ayers may have been duping all of us.

A representative for City of Hope medical center reveals to E! News exclusively that the Real Housewives of Orange County star was never treated for cancer at their facility. Ayers' representative has declined to comment.

In a sit-down interview with E! News' Melanie Bromley last week, Ayers came prepared to shut down any doubters about his cancer diagnosis, going as far as presenting documents printed with the "City of Hope" logo to prove he was receiving treatments for the disease at their facility.

"These are the three bills that reference the days I got my treatment," he explained to E!, sharing a document that stated how one chemo treatment cost $33,000. "I'm not going to say I'm in remission. That's not going to be the case until my numbers have normalized and that's the word that was used to me."

He continued, "I have more tests coming up in two months. I go back every 90 days. I don't get a scan every 90 days but I get blood work done every 90 days."

However, the hospital representative confirms they have never treated anyone by the name of "David Brooks Ayers" at their facilities.

In fact, last week an E! News investigation also revealed some inconsistencies within those same documents he presented, and the City of Hope logo was the first major red flag.

In Ayers' invoice, dated Jan. 22, 2015, the City of Hope National Medical Center logo has a small trademark symbol—something a person would find if they did an image search for "City of Hope logo." On another patient's documents, by contrast, no such trademark symbol appears.

Furthermore, on the other patient's invoice from City of Hope National Medical Center, its address appears as "1500 E. Duarte Road, Duarte, California 91010." In Ayers' provided document, the word "east" is abbreviated and the center's address appears as "1500 East Duarte Road, Duarte CA 91010."

Amber Marchese Exits The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Amber Marchese is saying goodbye to The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The star, who has been fighting her second battle with cancer, says she and husband Jim made the decision together.

"Jim and I have been giving Real Housewives or New Jersey a lot of thought and given the current state of affairs regarding our personal lives and the direction of the show, we officially decided to move on," Marchese says. "The show was not what we expected it to be, and I want to pursue more suitable endeavors."

Marchese joined the reality series for season 6 last year, and says the show "did not allow the viewers" to know the real her. 

"I was picked on a casting call while pursuing acting, and the person that was presented was created for the show. I had little control over content, situations, or what they decide to show the viewers," she says.

The star says that her onscreen relationship with RHONJ twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano – which at times turned ugly – was fabricated.

"Even my relationship with the twins was created. I recruited them for my storyline after I was chosen," she says. "I only met with Teresa Guidice and Dina Manzo for filming purposes. I never built a friendship with them as we were nothing more than co-workers. I wish them all well and the best of luck, although, my husband does not share my sentiments."  

Marchese, 38, is mom to Corbin and Isabella and stepmother to Michael and Sebastian. She blogs exclusively for PEOPLE about her journey through her second battle with breast cancer.

"I just want to thank everyone who has supported me and has shown nothing but kindness through my difficult times. It is a dream as an aspiring actress to get a lead role, but as with all careers, as one door closes, God willing, another one will open," she says. "For anyone following my story, I plan on continuing my blog. God bless to all!" 
Good riddance. I'm no Teresa Giudice fan, but at the point where your wackjob of a husband is dissing 14-year-old girls for no reason but to be a prick, it's just time to go.

Kim Richards Films 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Scene With Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster
She's back and looking good! Kim Richards was spotted filming a scene for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Friday, Nov. 6.

The former child star, who left the reality show earlier this year as she struggled with her sobriety, was seated with pals Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster as she shot the scene in a Beverly Hills park.

Glanville, 42, also left the Bravo hit in June, but as Us Weekly exclusively reported last month, she will be featured on the show's upcoming sixth season.

"Producers brought her back to bring in some drama and liven things up," a source told Us.

Richards, 51, who was in treatment earlier this year after being arrested for public intoxication at the Beverly Hills Hotel, was sentenced to three years probation, 30 days of community labor, and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in September.

She received an almost identical sentence after pleading no contest to shoplifting from a Target store in Los Angeles in August.

The mother of four talked about her sobriety in an interview on Glanville's Unfiltered podcast at the end of October, and admitted that she was focused on living "one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time."

"I'm living in the now, living in the present," she continued. "If I look too far back or too far forward, it's kind of crazy and I get fearful. Living in the present for me is just the best way, and the only way for me."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo on Dec. 1 at 9 p.m. ET.

Amber Marchese Slams Teresa Giudice: 'She's Exploiting Her Kids For A Paycheck’
Although Teresa Giudice is still locked away in prison, her husband Joe and daughters have all gotten a lot of screen time in recent weeks on RHONJ: Teresa Checks In. Now, her costars Amber and Jim Marchese are speaking out to to slam the decision to put this tough time on TV, insisting the Giudices are “exchanging their kids’ mental health for a paycheck!”

Gia, 14, Milania, 9, Gabriella, 8, and Audriana, 3, were all front and center on the show, which Jim recently called a “dark endorsement of criminal behavior and exploitation of children.”

Andy Cohen hit back, calling out the Marcheses for putting their own kids on TV too, but now, Amber tells Radar that it’s not the same situation at all.

“I usually remain silent regarding all Real Housewives of New Jersey shenanigans, especially Andy and Bravo’s judgments of what makes ‘RHONJ‘ great, however he publicly criticized my decision to include my children on the show,” she said. “They crossed a line and so now, they get my iron fist response!”

“Jim and I, as parents only had our children participate in family events, such as ginger bread house making, a fall harvest party, and a cute kid’s commercial for our family business,” Amber insisted. “We never had them in ‘adult situations’ or speaking about ‘adult issues.'” Like prison?

“We have all had difficult times in our lives: Melissa and Joe [Gorga] moved into a rental for a while; Jackie and Chris [Laurita] spend thousands on care for their son; and Jim and I have had our challenges,” she continued. “We are not having our children eat of off ‘Gucci plates,’ nor are we living in a home that the mortgage is unpaid.”

In short, she thinks that the Giudices don’t have their kids’ best interests at heart.

“One of the things about Melissa, Jackie and I remains constant: we focus on our children and their best interests,” she said. “The same cannot be said for Teresa and Joe G. They are literally exchanging their children’s mental health for a pay check!”

Lisa Vanderpump Sues Ex-Lawyer ... Your Crappy Work Cost Me a Ton of Money
Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd are going after an attorney they say did a really crappy job defending them against a former employee. 

The "RHOBH" stars say Marieanne Zakarian cut a lot of corners when she repped them. You'll recall, one of their Villa Blanca employees, Karina Bustillos, claimed she was assaulted and sexually harassed at work.

She eventually won a $1.6 million judgement against Lisa and Ken.

Now they're looking to get some of that money back from Zakarian with a lawsuit claiming she committed malpractice. 

The couple's demanding more than $1 mil in damages.

Is Dallas the Next Real Housewives City?
Everything’s bigger in… While there have been shows in Orange County, Beverly Hills, New York City, Atlanta, and New Jersey (plus, RIP Miami and Washington, D.C.), never have the Real Housewives hailed from the great state of Texas — until, possibly, now! A Housewives source exclusively tells Us Weekly that the next city for the Bravo franchise will be Dallas. 

“All of the filming has been done, and it will be announced soon,” the source dishes. 

n fact, just this week, Housewives creator Andy Cohen teased a new city on the SiriusXM show Reality Checked with Amy Phillips. 

“I do [think there will be a new Housewives city], sooner than you think,” he noted. 

And though fans would clearly love a Dallas installment of the Housewives empire — the hair! the ranches! the cowboys! — Bravo could go in the direction of Housewives-adjacent shows like Ladies of London or Married to Medicine for this new Dallas-set series. 

Kim Fields On Why She Joined 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'
When Kim Fields got the call from Bravo about joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta, well, her reaction was probably the same as yours when you heard The Facts of Life and Living Single star would be joining the reality show.

"My first was instinct was, 'Y'all know you called Kim Fields, right?…Am I being punk'd?' It was those kinds of moments of, 'Really?' when my agent first said, 'Hey we got this call to see if you're interested in doing this,'" Kim told E! News.

As the talks continued, Kim said she was swayed when she learned producers really wanted her. They weren't trying to change her or have some sort of "reality manufactured version of Kim," she said. "They wanted who Kim is in this environment, and that was interesting to me."

Kim decided to play in the RHOA playground while maintaining her other gigs. She's still very much playing behind the scenes and in front of the camera, this reality show is just another venture.

Kim's entering The Real Housewives of Atlanta at a pivotal time for the reality series—NeNe Leakes has departed the series as a regular cast member, making it the first time RHOA doesn't have an original star as part of its main cast. But don't think she's NeNe's replacement.

"Ain't nobody replacing NeNe Leakes," she said. "No way, no way." The two finally met when NeNe surprised the RHOA ladies on their trip to the Bahamas.

Yolanda Foster Confronts ‘RHOBH’ Ladies Who Say She’s Faking Lyme Disease
Yolanda Foster got into a heated confrontation during Kyle Richards‘ RHOBH finale party, has learned, after the blonde beauty learned her pals were actually questioning the Lyme disease diagnosis.

As Radar reported, the party was hosted at Richards’ Coachella Valley vacation home and “Yolanda came with a mission to make a scene,” an insider claimed. “She learned that the women had been questioning her Lyme disease diagnosis, with Lisa Rinna and Taylor Armstrong leading the charge. Taylor wasn’t at the party but that didn’t stop Yolanda from lighting into Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle.”

“The ladies seemed to think Yolanda had become a hypochondriac, or was making herself sick from undergoing so many alternative treatments,” the source explained. “Yolanda was very, very upset and did indeed yell at them.”

As Radar has reported, Brooks Ayers faced similar skepticism over his cancer diagnosis in the last season of RHOC.

But unlike Ayers, who has kept his cancer battle mainly off screen, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been open about her illness as she checked in and out of hospitals and even travelled abroad in search of a cure over the past three years.

In fact, with medical bills mounting Yolanda and her husband, David Foster, recently sold their Malibu mansion, and are temporarily living in a condo.

Meghan King Edmonds Slams Vicki Gunvalson: 'She Is a Filthy Liar'
Meghan King Edmonds has had plenty of drama with her Real Housewives of Orange County costar Vicki Gunvalson, but now that the reality show has officially wrapped it's 10th season and aired three explosive reunion shows, Edmonds is officially writing her off for good.

"I don't consider Vicki a friend. I've never filmed with just her," Edmonds tells PEOPLE. "I think she is a filthy liar who plays the victim, and I refuse to ever willingly associate myself with that."

After spending much of the season defending Brooks Ayers controversial cancer diagnosis, Gunvalson admitted during the reunion show that she no longer believed her ex-boyfriend was in fact sick and that she also fabricated a story earlier this season about calling Heather Dubrow's doctor husband to treat him.

"I care too much about my reputation than to tarnish it by pretending to be friends with a reality television actress," Edmonds, 31, adds. "I bring real stories to the Housewives and I won't sink to the level of associating with fakeness."

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 Trailer Released: Lisa Rinna, Eileen Davidson Explode, Kim Returns, Plus Meet the Newbies
Holy moly, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies are back! And with them for Season 6 come private planes to Dubai, Kim Richards’ confrontations, Lisa Rinna’s “hoo-hoo,” Eileen Davidson’s husband drama, Yolanda Foster’s emotional health battle, and two newcomers who look anything but innocent.

Based on the first look that Bravo released of the explosive new season on Thursday, Nov. 5, the point of tension appears to revolve around Davidson and her husband, Vincent Van Patten, as well as drama surrounding Foster’s fight against Lyme disease, and of course, Kim’s arrest. Tension also seems to boil between Kyle Richards, Rinna, and newcomer Erika Jayne, whom Bethenny Frankel — yes, the RHONY star and Skinnygirl mogul shows up! — dubs “Bambi.”

Alums Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrianne Maloof, and Brandi Glanville also make appearances, as well as Foster’s daughter Gigi Hadid, her now ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, and “the morally corrupt" Faye Resnick, as Grammer would say.

The trailer ends on a dramatic note, with Rinna threatening: “You’re gonna go down in f—king flames with me.”

Real Housewives of Atlanta Begins with Kenya Moore and Shereé Whitfield Beef
The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are back in action and there's no shortage of drama. Oh, like you're surprised by that. In this exclusive premiere sneak peek, Cynthia Bailey has assembled the ladies for a party (hey, it's a premiere episode, there has to be a party) and just in time for some drama comes Shereé Whitfield.

"Oh look what the cat dragged in," Phaedra Parks says in her confessional. "She by Shereé."

And not only is Sheree there, but so is Marlo Hampton (they weren't speaking in "African tongues" this time). Shockingly—or not so shockingly—the drama isn't between Marlo and Sheree, but with Sheree and Kenya Moore.

The two go way back, apparently, and are neighbors. But the shade gets thrown quickly when it comes to Chateau Shereé, which is still being built. "It takes time," Shereé says.

Kenya says neighbors have been complaining about Shereé 's house. "This is just people talking in the neighborhood," Kenya says. And this is just the beginning.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres Sunday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. on Bravo. Kim Fields of The Facts of Life and Living Single fame joins the cast alongside returning players Kenya, Phaedra, Cynthia, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss and recurring pals Shereé and Shamea Morton.

Tamra Judge Scrambling To Lock In Next Season’s ‘RHOC’ Contract
Tamra Judge has been the Real Housewives of Orange County‘s resident drama queen for years, but is her act getting old? A source close to production tells exclusively that she is scrambling to secure her place among the cast — and a contract for next season.

“This weekend, Tamra reached out to some of the housewives via telephone and it just seemed incredibly fake,” the source told Radar.

The source told Radar, “It makes absolutely no sense to anyone why she is trying to make friends with her enemies now. She seems desperate to save her job by creating some new alliances.”

As Radar previously reported, Judge and costars Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow have formed an alliance against Vicki Gunvalson, who they are currently hoping to get booted from the show.

But now it seems that even her alliance is turning against Judge, as the source said, “The rest of the girls are all on to Tamra now. She knows that Vicki is not going anywhere.”

NeNe Leakes And Kenya Moore Shading Each Other Again On Twitter
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore have started shading each other again just a few days after Leakes confirmed her return in the upcoming season 8 of the Bravo series.

"RHOA" is currently filming a trip to Jamaica, and sources close to the production told E! News, that Leakes appeared unannounced during a dinner party, much to the surprise of her clue cast members. And while it remains to be seen what exactly happened after Leakes unexpectedly crashed the dinner, it seems that something happened between her and Moore.

This past weekend, Moore vented to her millions of Twitter followers that she tried to reach out to Leakes via Twitter. However, she claimed that she found out that Leakes had blocked her, preventing her from tweeting her.

While things between Leakes and Moore are still not good, it appears that Leakes and Cynthia Bailey have already worked out their differences.

Over the weekend, Leakes shared an Instagram picture of herself with Bailey. And according to, there are rumors that the two are back on good terms. The website added that the former BFFs even went out for a double date with their husbands.
