Source: Kyle Richards Is NOT Leaving 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Kyle Richards is NOT quitting Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has learned. Her brother-in-law, Rick Hilton, made the shocking claim earlier this week, but insiders say it’s just the latest salvo in their ongoing family feud.

When Rick told reporters at LAX on Monday that Richards was done with Bravo, “Kyle was absolutely stunned,” an insider told Radar. “There has been so much family drama between Kyle and her sister Kathy Hilton, Rick’s wife, ever since Nicky‘s wedding last summer. Kathy was furious that Kyle was blabbing about the wedding drama on camera.”

Reconciliation seemed possible when Richards and Kathy ran into each other at Kris Jenner‘s Christmas Eve party. According to the source, “Kyle told Kathy she had asked Bravo to cut any further mention of the wedding from RHOBH, but there was never any talk about quitting the show.”

So why did Rick speak out?

“Kyle thinks Rick is trying to publicly pressure her into leaving RHOBH,” the source claimed. “That if she refuses to do so, it will make her look bad.”

But the source insisted, “These family issues won’t take Kyle off the show. She loves being on it, especially without her other sister Kim.”

Kim Fields Responds to Kenya Moore’s “Prostitute” Comments
Kim Fields may be the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast’s resident nice girl this season, but that doesn’t mean she's not going to defend herself against Kenya Moore’s never-ending barrage of insults.

On Sunday’s episode of RHoA, Kenya called Kim out on the outfit she’d chosen for Kandi Burruss and Demetria McKinney’s video release party, saying the shorts-and-boots combo the former Living Single star had picked made her look like a “confused prostitute at Disneyworld.”

It doesn’t look like Kenya’s shade has left Kim hurting, however — the mom of two took to her blog to provide a little info on the look, giving no apologies for the risque outfit.

Kim described her sexy look as “Fashion History: Vintage ‘hot pants 'n boots’ a la late '60s early '70s.”

While Kim seems to be keeping her cool about the whole situation, this isn’t the first time it’s been clear Kenya is gunning for her this season.

Prior to laying the recent sartorial smackdown on Kim, Kenya tore into her for seeming to defend Tammy McCall Browning’s nephew when he got aggressive in Miami. Master of shade that she is, Kenya expressed her disappointment through a series of tweets in which fans accused Kim of bearding for her husband, followed by Kenya’s call for Kim to be removed from the show’s cast.

Erika Girardi Reveals ‘I Don’t Have a Lot of Women Friends’
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is introducing two new regular cast members this season, with recording artist Erika Girardi, better known by her stage name Erika Jayne, making her debut on Tuesday’s episode.

Recruited to the show by her best friend and co-star Yolanda Foster, Girardi joins the Bravo reality show with fellow freshman Housewife Kathryn Edwards for Season 6.

Though jumping into a show after six years can be a daunting prospect, and Girardi says she hadn’t watched the show before being cast, she jumped at the opportunity.
“To step into a group of women [who have already known each other for years] is sometimes awkward, sometimes uncomfortable,” Girardi said in an interview with TheWrap. “But everyone is really smart and has a lot to offer. And it’s a really fun group of women. I enjoyed my experience immensely.”

Read the full interview below:

TheWrap: What was it like coming on to a show that’s been around for a while with an established cast?
Girardi: You’re right that they were already an established group. So to step into a group of women like that is sometimes awkward, sometimes uncomfortable. But everyone is really smart and has a lot to offer. And it’s a really fun group of women. I enjoyed my experience immensely.

Did you find that the women acted differently on- and off-camera?
I think everyone is pretty much themselves all the time. And at their core, these are some really strong, smart, accomplished women.

What made you want to do the show?
I think it’s a great opportunity to be yourself and have fun. And I don’t have a lot of women friends. That’s the great thing about this show, it’s an opportunity to invite this group of women into your life.

Kenya Moore Debuts Her New Man On ‘RHOA’
When it comes to Kenya Moore and relationships, it’s usually as real as Sheree Whitfield moving into “Chateau Sheree” in this lifetime.

In efforts to maintain her storyline beyond being an instigator and a pot-stirrer, Kenya has introduced viewers to her new man.

Trainer Matt Jordan recently made his debut on RHOA. Twitter couldn’t help but have mixed reactions to their on-screen chemistry.

“Kenya, Matt doesn’t want you,” said @IamBJP

While @cussattasays commented, “I think Matt and Kenya make a good match! She should really give him chance because he’s fine

What makes Matt and Kenya’s union seemingly real is the fact that he went to bat for her on social media. 

He recently made the former Miss USA his WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) a few days early and his comments included some haters.

“…People swear she can’t get a man, clearly she doesn’t want one,” said @gotebi. To which Matt responded, “She can get what she desires, she has a man and she’s well taken care of!”

Kyle Richards Allegedly Quitting 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Rick Hilton says Kyle Richards is so pissed off at Bravo for airing her family's dirty laundry, she's quitting the show ... but our production sources say Rick's just wrong.

We got Rick at LAX Monday, and asked about the family rift over Nicky's wedding ... where Kyle's hubby Mauricio was persona non grata.

Rick told us Kyle's upset at Bravo ... so upset she's given notice. Fact is ... we're told Kyle has threatened to quit in the past.

We're getting a very different story from sources connected with "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," who say what this is really about is that Mauricio is now a competitor of Rick's in the real estate biz. As for Kyle, they say she's going nowhere.  

Phaedra Parks' Husband Apollo Nida Doesn't Want His Visiting Him In Prison
For one Real Housewives star, news that his kids haven’t gotten permission to visit him in prison is reportedly a good thing.

Apollo Nida, husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, is currently serving an eight-year sentence for fraud and was recently moved to a new prison facility, according to TMZ. The site reports that Nida’s two children, 5-year-old Ayden and 2-year-old Dylan, have not gotten approval to visit their father, but that both parents are OK with that. TMZ reports that sources say Nida believes it would be too traumatic for the boys to see him in prison, at least until they are older, and Parks agrees. In the meantime, the children will FaceTime with their dad.

While still legally married, Parks and Nida are no longer together.

Though both parents seem to have their children’s best interests in mind, Stacey Bouchet, an expert on family strengthening who is also the child of a formerly incarcerated parent, says it’s always best for children to see their imprisoned parents in person. “Some parents think it’s traumatic, and it’s true that it can be an ordeal,” she tells Yahoo Parenting. “But it benefits the children a great deal. Many prisons have special activities set up for parents to engage meaningfully with children, and it can be a wonderful experience.”

Eileen Davidson And Husband Vincent Van Patten: Marriage Drama On ‘RHOBH’ Season 6, But No Divorce
Is Eileen Davidson’s marriage in jeopardy? During a sneak peek at the December 22 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Eileen Davidson and her husband, Vincent Van Patten, are seen sitting down for lunch as they discuss a timing issue.

“I can’t look at the clock and go, ‘It’s almost nine, now I can get mad at him.’ I mean, I can’t do that,” Eileen Davidson explains, likely in regard to one of her sons.

Then, in response, Van Patten tells Eileen Davidson, “Because you are an idiot.”

Right away, Eileen Davidson appears to be caught off-guard, and who can blame her? However, despite Van Patten’s odd comment, Eileen Davidson recently claimed she and Van Patten are just fine. In fact, she says The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has actually been beneficial to her marriage, and made her relationship with Van Patten stronger. Although a separate preview clip of the sixth season also seems hint at marital troubles, Eileen Davidson spoke to OK! Magazine weeks ago, confirming her and Van Patten’s marriage was very much intact.
“Actually that is just a teaser because there is nothing going on in our marriage frankly,” Eileen Davidson told the magazine, according to a report by Radar Online. “We always were and we are [doing fine] right now, yes.”
“I told Lisa Rinna just a couple months ago: The show is actually really good for my marriage because I appreciate him so much going through all these ups and downs with the ladies. In our instance, it’s making our marriage stronger.”
As for why Eileen Davidson seemed to be at odds with Van Patten on the show, she noted editing as the culprit.

“I guess you can misconstrue it because it doesn’t really say anything, does it?” she said. “It just has me crying about something, and then it has him saying, ‘You were attacking me.’ But you will just have to look at it to really understand what context it’s in.”

Before the season began, a report spoke of a possible divorce between Eileen Davidson and Patten.
“It appears that some of the show’s biggest highlights will surround Davidson and her husband drama,” Soap Shows reported in November, prior to the premiere of the sixth season. “Has her marriage become so fragile that the once-happy couple may not make it through another season of cameras following their every move?”

New Video: Demetria McKinney feat. Kandi Burruss - “Unnecessary Trouble"
Demetria McKinney may not be on Real Housewives of Atlanta anymore, but she’s still making use of those friendships she formed while on the show, especially as they pertain to her burgeoning music career.

The budding songstress, who has had success with her previous tracks, “Trade it All,” and “100,” enlisted Kandi Burruss’s help with a song called “Unnecessary Trouble.

Not only did Kandi help write the upbeat tune about troublesome fellas, but the former Xscape member also sings on the track and appears in the accompanying music video, a snippet of which you can see below.

Kandi shared the clip on Instagram and noted we’ll get to see how the video came together on this Sunday’s episode of RHoA. The expectant mom also revealed the new single will be available on iTunes on Sunday, December 27.

If the comments on Kandi’s post are any indication, her fans (and Demetria’s) will eat this joint effort up.

“I like it. Give me more,” one fan wrote.

Another added, “It looks like you had fun in the video kandi! I'm here for it do more duos with her I can't wait to hear it.”

Demetria first teased her collabo with Kandi nearly a year ago, telling Wetpaint exclusively she was “excited” to work with the music industry vet.

Yolanda Foster Reacts to Lisa Rinna's "Absurd" Munchausen Syndrome Remarks
Yolanda Foster is not letting a certain Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's comments about her health get to her.

The reality star and mother of models Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid has been battling chronic Lyme disease for years. On Tuesday's episode of the Bravo series, co-star Lisa Rinna appeared to question the validity of her ailment when she read to cast members Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump a definition of Munchausen syndrome, a mental disorder in people "feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves."

Yolanda responded to Rinna's remarks on her Bravo blog.

"I don't blame Rinna, Kyle or LVDP—I understand it and feel sorry to see my battle be such a point of weakness for them," she said. "If I let fear of what others say about me creep into my mind, I probably would not be where I am today."

"I am inspired by my life on a day to day basis and consciously avoid stressful situations by walking away and letting go of remarks from people like the women in this group, but it seems in today's world your word isn't good enough anymore so even though I should not have to prove my case, I'm not afraid to do so," she said. "I will move on from the absurd Munchausen comment that is an insult to my integrity and that of my two children who battle this disease on a daily basis." 

Yolanda had said in October Bella and son Anwar Hadid had also battled chronic Lyme disease.

"My talents and creativity as a healthy human being when starting my journey as a housewife would have gotten me way further in life then lying in bed, debilitated, forced to find a cure for this lame disease as I watched life from the side lines these past four years," she continued. "This is not just about me; this is about bringing awareness and ensuring a healthy life for my two children and millions of others that are affected by this invisible chronic disease."

She then threw in a bit of shade.

"I'm probably the only Housewife in the entire franchise that uses this platform to bring awareness in the world rather than just money in my pocket," Yolanda added.

Rinna told Bravo's The Daily Dish that she "felt bad" she engaged in the conversation with her co-stars and that she is "supportive" of Yolanda.

"And I do believe that she is suffering from Lyme," she added. "And, I think that it's complicated."

Kristen Taekman Talks Leaving 'Real Housewives of New York'
Former “Real Housewives of New York” star Kristen Taekman caught up with FOX411 to chat about her reality television days and her various projects.  
Taekman revealed to FOX411 why she exited the popular show.

“I feel like I had a great two year run, it was so much fun,” she gushed. “All good things come to an end; onward and upward onto new things. The beauty of it is I am still really good friends with all of the ladies, I just don’t have any of the drama anymore.”

The mom of two is thankful for her time on reality TV because it allowed her to see her kids in a different light.

“I think the beauty of it is and a lot of people say this with kids on reality TV, you really get to see your kids grow up.”

Plus Taekman won't rule out the chance for a return to reality TV.

“Never say never,” she said. “I think if something presented itself, why not, yeah!”

In August, when the infidelity website Ashley Madison was hacked, it was revealed that her husband, Josh Taekman, was a subscriber to the site. He issued a statement to US Weekly apologizing to his friends and family, “"I signed up for the site foolishly and ignorantly with a group of friends and I deeply apologize for any embarrassment or pain I have brought to my wife and family.”  

However, these days, Taekman has moved on from the scandal. She's keeping busy as she partnered with King Digital for a game called Blossom Blast Saga.

“The game is about flower, blossom, color and light and bright and happy,” she explained. “The game is great because it’s about flowers; I’m completely addicted—I got my mom addicted!”

Teresa Giudice Reunites With Family As a Free Woman

Sheree Whitfield Being Sued by 'Chateau Sheree' Contractors
After five years working on what was infamously dubbed “Chateau Sheree,” the construction workers are tired of listening to Sheree Whitfield construct excuses as to why she has not paid them, so they are taking the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star to court for outstanding fees that run in the tens of thousands.

According to multiple reports, the lawsuit against Sheree, filed December 17, 2015, in Fulton County Superior Court, comes from Stoploss Specialists, which describes itself as an “emergency response contractor,” according to the AJC. They are suing Whitfield for unpaid bills of about $15,450 and asked for $23,000 after late fees and other charges.

The company in the lawsuit said it signed a deal with her on December 17, 2014, exactly one year earlier “to supply equipment, labor and/or materials for the improvement” of the property.

Sheree Whitfield, the ex-wife of former NFL star and Atlanta Falcon Bob Whitfield, bragged ad nauseum in 2011 that she was constructing her dream house and mis-named it “Chateau Sheree.” It was a damning debacle from the very beginning and the property has been languishing as eye pollution ever since — and it is now almost 2016.

Whitfield’s problems were exacerbated when her husband Bob Whitfield filed for bankruptcy, effectively ending her gravy-train ride of spousal support. Luckily, however, Whitfield was asked to return to the season eight of RHOA after flagship star Nene Leakes temporarily quit.

But since Whitfield is just a recurring guest she is not bringing in the stacks of paper need to finish the mansion. Compounding Whitfield’s humiliation, in the first episode of RHOA’s season 8, Kenya Moore, immediately pounced on Sheree’s and mocked her inability to complete Chateau Sheree, even as Moore mentioned that she herself was working on her own fixer upper down the street, which Whitfield called “mold manor.”

Time and perhaps perspective has humbled the once thorny and smug Sheree Whitfield. On her Bravo blog, she admitted that with Chateau Sheree she “took on an enormous project with my family and clearly got in way over my head.”

Sheree Whitfield does have some things working in her favor. One, she is being compensated for her time on “Real Housewives,” albeit as a recurring character, so her salary wouldn’t be nearly as much as if she were a regular.

Secondly, Whitfield scored a hit as an executive producer of the new hit WEtv show “Selling It: In the ATL,” a reality show that illuminates the trials, tribulations and triumphs of five local female real estate agents. Since the show has been a ratings hit, it looks promising that it will be picked up for a second season.

Yolanda Foster Sells Mansion, Moves Into Condo After Filing For Divorce
Westwood's tony, celeb-magnet condo complex The Carlyle Residences where Candy Spelling famously holed up while her Century City penthouse was undergoing an intense renovation can add yet another celebrity to its roster. A kindly tipster tells us Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster is moving into the Carlyle after downsizing from a huge, lavish mansion in Malibu. (It sold in the fall.) Ms. Foster has posted a few Instagrams indicating that she's found a new home, and those photos match with the amenities and views afforded in this posh 3,950-square-foot Wilshire Corridor condo. 

Though this place isn't a nearly 12,000-square-foot beachfront mansion like Ms. Foster's last residence, the three-bedroom condo is not lacking in luxury. Remodeled by its last owner, the unit has a high-end kitchen with new appliances, 11-foot-high ceilings throughout, automated UV window shades, a whole guest suite on the second floor of the residence, and a "direct entrance from the private elevator foyer." Listed for $4.78 million, property records show that the unit in the Carlyle sold for $4.59 million at the beginning of this month. 

Aside from being a reality TV star famous for loving lemons and cleanses, Ms. Foster is also the ex-Mrs. Mohamed Hadid (the spec mansion developer who's been named as a defendant in a criminal case against his massive, totally illegal Bel Air megamansion project) and the mom of celebrity models Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Phaedra Parks & Kim Fields Fine With Violence Against Women
For the second time this season, Kenya Moore felt the need to kick someone out of her abode and it led to violence.

She is just that magic reality show elixir! Bring her to boil and poof! Drama!

A few weeks back, she tried to kick Shamea Morton off a boat and that indirectly led to the Cynthia Bailey/Porsha Williams clash. This time, Kenya wanted Tammy’s nephew Glen Rice Jr. out of their Miami rental. Angrily, he pushed his aunt to the ground while she tried to block him from attacking Kenya and she was knocked out. Tammy was taken to the hospital but was ultimately okay.

A former Georgia Tech basketball player, Glen has gotten in trouble before. According to a Buzz story in October:
The younger Rice, a Walton High School graduate, was dismissed from the Tech team in March 2012 by coach Brian Gregory following a charge of permitting unlawful operation of a vehicle related to a shooting incident outside an Atlanta nightclub. He went on to play in the NBA Development League.
He played 16 games with the Washington Wizards from 2013-2015.

Glen was then shot in the leg this past October outside T.I.’s restaurant Scales 925. That apparently happened soon after this Miami trip.

Kenya felt justified in her actions in both situations. When it came to Glen, “it felt like it was escalating,” she said. “I noticed this behavior seemed aggressive. He was acting in a threatening way.”

Indeed, Glen had a bad attitude from the moment she tried to engage her in Miami. He also popped off at Kandi Burruss for no particular reason. “He was mean mugging me!” she said.

Not that everyone agreed that Glen should have been booted. Phaedra Parks, for instance, felt that black men tend be targeted too often as threatening.

“We have to careful about labeling,” Sheree Whitfield said to Phaedra in a separate conversation.
Phaedra: “It’s not cool what Kenya has done. She is like any white woman in suburbia who becomes afraid.” Phaedra then got tearful thinking about visiting Michael Brown‘s mother in Ferguson last year.
As much as it's hard for anyone to agree with Kenya, the minute that a-hole Glen Rice Jr. started in on PREGNANT Kandi, you didn't have to wait till he knocked his aunt Tammy down to the floor to know that Kenya was right to kick him out the house and the guy's a coward who has no problem verbally and physically abusing women.

Teresa Giudice To Be Released From Prison On Wednesday, December 23
One of New Jersey’s “Real Housewives” is set to be freed from the big house just days before Christmas.

Teresa Giudice will be released Wednesday from the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut, her lawyer said. She will then head home to her husband, Joe, and their four daughters in Montville, where she will be on home confinement until Feb. 5.

Her attorney, James Leonard Jr., said his client is upbeat and looking forward to coming home. Leonard said he plans to drive Giudice home from prison, but he declined to provide more specific details about her release.

Giudice has been at the prison since January. She and her husband pleaded guilty last year to bankruptcy fraud.

They admitted hiding assets from bankruptcy creditors and submitting phony loan applications to get some $5 million in mortgages and construction loans.

Joe Giudice also pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes. He’s expected to start his 41-month sentence in March and has said he will serve his term at the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix in southern Jersey.

A federal judge staggered the couple’s sentences in deference to their children.

Joe Giudice is not an American citizen and could be deported to Italy when he’s released.

Source Says Kyle Richards and Sister Kathy Hilton 'Aren't Speaking'
Not-so-Merry Christmas!

It's been a rough year for Kim Richards and her sister Kyle Richards, who weathered a painful estrangement as Kim struggled with alcohol abuse issues and subsequently entered rehab earlier this year.

Now, just as the sisters were working on mending their troubled relationship, older sister Kathy Hilton is getting into the fray. 

An insider tells PEOPLE: "Kyle and Kim are still working on their issues, and now, Kathy and Kyle aren't speaking." The reason? Complicated family dynamics.  

As The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans can attest, there is no love lost between Hilton and Kyle's husband, Mauricio Umansky. Says the insider: "Kathy's husband Rick [Hilton] is still mad at Mauricio for leaving [Rick's real estate company] Hilton & Hyland and starting [successful competitor] The Agency. The animosity has been building up for awhile. Mauricio isn't even welcome in the Hilton house." 

Adding fuel to the fire, the insider says Kathy, 56, is furious that Kyle, 46, brought the family drama to reality TV, admitting on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she was at one point uninvited to niece Nicky Hilton's July wedding.

"Kathy is mad that Kyle brought Nicky into the fight," says the insider, who notes that neither Kyle nor Kim were invited to Kathy's annual Christmas party at her home on December 12. "There is so much drama in that family. It's sad that even over the holidays, they still can't get along."

Brooks Ayers Wins $130,000 In Vodka Lawsuit Involving Ex-Girlfriend Vicki Gunvalson
Brooks Ayers’ spirits most definitely have been lifted now that the troubled The Real Housewives of Orange County star has been award $130,000 in attorney fees in relation to the lawsuit he was involved in over Vicki Gunvalson’s vodka line.

Robert Williamson III sued Gunvalson back in 2013 over claims that she had breached a settlement agreement that had been reached in a previous suit over claims that she failed to promote their Vikci’s Vodka line! 

Williamson then followed up that suit with a second suit against Ayers, accusing him of several allegations. His claims against Ayers included breach of convenient of good faith and fair dealing, misrepresentations, fraud and omissions, unjust enrichment, civil conspiracy and promissory estoppel.

However, a Nevada judge ruled in early 2015 that Ayers “in no way breached the contract.”

And Williamson was recently ordered to pay Ayers’ lawyers $130,000 over the case.

Lisa Vanderpump is mourning the loss of one of her many beloved pets.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star took to social media over the weekend where she revealed the news that Giggy's father had passed away.

Teresa Giudice Will Spend Christmas Eve with the Gorgas in Front of Bravo Cameras
O come, all ye Housewives! Teresa Giudice finishes her 15-month prison stint for fraud December 23 — just in time for Christmas Eve at the Gorgas’ home. 

Sources tell Us Weekly that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 43, is slated to accompany husband Joe and their brood for a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes dinner at sister-in-law Melissa Gorga’s Montville, New Jersey, mansion. 

“It’s a blessing that everyone will be able to be together,” Gorga, 36, tells Us.
Giudice and Gorga have had their differences — in 2012, Gorga accused Giudice of teaming up with friend Kim DePaola to make it seem like Gorga was a stripper at Lookers Gentlemen’s Club in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Following the blowup, Joe Gorga claimed that sister Teresa was “dead to [him]” in a text message.
But the in-laws are fixing those severed ties for the holiday season. 

“They’re on really great terms right now,” a second source reveals. “Everything that happened with Teresa going away made both women realize that there are more important things in life than their old feud. Melissa and Joe [Gorga] reached out to Joe Giudice … and all four of them are on the best terms they've ever been on.”

And it pays to play nice. While a Teresa source says there is “major interest from Bravo” for her to return to the series, “nothing is official.”

Yolanda Foster's Marriage to David Foster Took a Toll on Their Eight Children: "There Were Issues With the Families Blending"
As a former successful supermodel, Yolanda Foster knows a thing or two about the power of promotion.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star anticipated the benefits of chronicling her life on camera nearly three years ago when she joined the show, particularly when her two daughters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid were just high school modeling hopefuls off of Hollywood's radar.  

"At first, Yolanda's children were a big reason she decided to do the show," a source told E! News. "She wanted to boost their careers and she definitely succeeded. Bella and Gigi have become household names."

That fact is undeniable. At just 20 and 19 years old respectively, Gigi and Bella's faces now dominate the fashion scene worldwide, securing major ad campaigns for international brands like Maybelline and Guess, walking the runways of Victoria's Secret and Chanel and appearing on the covers of countless international Vogue magazines.

Even Anwar Hadid, Foster's youngest child, officially launched his own career in front of the camera after posing in the pages of Nylon.

Now that her children are thriving, some may wonder why Foster continues to face the public spotlight on the show despite an debilitating battle with Lyme disease and a very fresh divorce from her husband of four years, David Foster. The simple answer—her sickness is her motivation. 

"Now, one of the reasons she remains on the show is to help shine a light on her disease," the source added. 

However, it's that same physical fight that chiseled away at her relationship with her husband. 

"No one doubts that Yolanda is sick," the source shared. "It's very clear that she's legitimately not been well. But, David is someone who travels constantly and Yolanda became ill just one year into the marriage. It was a lot."

In addition to Yolanda's disease, the merging of her trio of children with David's five daughters from previous wives was a difficult task in its own right. 

"David has daughters of his own and there were issues with the families blending. Bringing two sets of children together wasn't always easy," the source told E! News. "At one point, Yolanda was close to David's daughters, but things have changed. 

For David—who was married three times before Yolanda—this may mark the end of an unlucky streak in love. 

"At this point, David thinks maybe he's just not cut out for marriage," the source said.

Kenya Moore Blasts Kim Fields For Being 'Too Boring'
Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” nice girl Cynthia Bailey once said that it doesn’t always pay to be nice and quiet on the show. And that point was proven, once again, this week when “RHOA” bad girl Kenya Moore blasted her more timid cast mate Kim Fields for being too “boring.”

As viewers of the new season of “RHOA” know, unlike her other cast mates, Fields seems to have little knowledge about throwing shade and often spends most of her time on camera discussing her real life at home with her family.

And for Moore, that just doesn’t make for good reality TV and she blasted Fields for not providing any entertainment value to the show.

“I have a hard time remembering that Kim is on the show because when I do see her I fall asleep,” Moore said in a new interview with OK! magazine. “I have to wake myself up and go ‘Oh, I must’ve missed half of what she was doing because I’m bored.'”

So far in the season, Fields and Moore have only had one disagreement, in which Fields questioned whether Moore had been instigating an argument between Sheree Whitfield and “RHOA” newcomer Shamea by sharing gossip. Although the disagreement was minor, Moore seems to have it out for Fields because she blasted the former child actress for having multiple breakdowns on camera while missing her family.

“It’s a strange situation. I’ve never seen a woman near 50 cry from being away from her children or away from her husband for actually less than 24 hours,” Moore said.

As with most newcomers, Fields has been struggling to adjust to life on reality TV, but Moore said she has no advice for Fields on how to cope becasuse Fields’ drama only concerns her family life.

“I don’t think the drama with the women is the issue. I think it’s her own issue with actually having to be away from her family. I’m not sure if our drama really affects that. I don’t know if she’s ever had a job where she’s had to be away from them and that is a major issue for her. I don’t know really how to advise her on to have a more functional relationship,” said Moore.

Inside Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan's Boozy Battle: Tipsy Girl Line 'Will Never Happen'
This may be the last straw for Real Housewives of New York stars Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan.

In light of recent litigation by Morgan's new liquor line Tipsy Girl against Frankel and her Skinnygirl brand, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE that claims made by Morgan's business partner are exaggerated.

The source says that Peter Guimaraes' statements to Page Six that Frankel wants to prevent he and Morgan from moving forward with Tipsy Girl is merely an attempt to drum up publicity. 

Frankel, 45, believes the pair are attempting to "use [The Real Housewives of New York City] to have a fake story," the source says.

Page Six reported that Skinnygirl filed court documents to trademark "Tipsygirl," a move Guimaraes called "underhanded."

"[Frankel] is threatened by this Tipsy Girl brand, which is not a copycat nor competition for Skinnygirl," he wrote to the newspaper. "We are not advocating that you will lose weight with our product."

The source tells PEOPLE, however, that Frankel "doesn't care" about the line and is more concerned about Guimaraes and Morgan using her brand for media attention.

Newest Beverly Hills Housewives Erika Girardi Teases Run-In with Bethenny Frankel: She 'Kind of Let Me Have It'
There's a new Housewife coming to Beverly Hills!

Though she's better known as Erika Jayne, the dance-music queen with eight Billboard No. 1 singles, Erika Girardi is here to prove there's more to her than her fabulous alter ego.

"I hope the audience enjoys getting to know me as a person," Girardi, 44, tells PEOPLE about joining the show. "There's a lot to look at [as Erika Jayne], but I think underneath all of the glitz and fashion and makeup, there's a pretty nice girl here."

Best friend and RHOBH cast member Yolanda Foster recruited Girardi to become part of the show's cast. 

"Yolanda has a wonderful way of persuasion," Girardi explains. "I'm always interested in stepping out of my comfort zone, trying new things and really stretching and getting the most out of life. So, why not?"

Fans of the show received their first look at Girardi on the show in the season 6 promo, which showed Girardi saying she wasn't like the typical Beverly Hills woman who only eats salad. Although she stands out for enjoying the occasional cheeseburger and fries, she's used to it by now.

"I have always been a little bit bigger, a little bit louder and a little bit sassier than most little girls," she says.

When it came to getting along with the other women, Girardi says that, unlike Erika Jayne, she was worried her shyness might make it hard for the other Housewives to get to know her at first.

"I have social anxiety," Girardi says. "When you're coming into a group of women like this, it's a moment for pause because there's a lot of personalities here. I had not seen the show. I had never met any of the women other than Yolanda and she was not around a lot of the time I was with these women."  

This season's other newest addition is Kathryn Edwards. Girardi admits there were a few "bumps along the road" when they first met, but now they've both come to a point where they both "really appreciate each other."

From the trailer, we also know Girardi has a confrontation with The Real Housewives of New York City's Bethenny Frankel, who pays Beverly Hills a visit this season. Although she was reluctant to give too much away, she assured us it was a good moment.

"Bethenny, in true Bethenny fashion, kind of let me have it," she teases. "She has her opinion and she definitely says what she thinks."

Kim Richards Is Committed To Sobriety
Kim Richards is doing well in her fight to stay clean and sober, but a judge wants to make sure she doesn't backslide. 

According to new court documents, Richards has been steadily attending AA meetings since September -- as the court required. She's attended 52 meetings. 

Back in April, she had a drunken incident at the Beverly Hotel ... then was arrested for shoplifting at Target in August. The judge sentenced her to 300 hours of community service, 3 years of probation, and the 52 AA meetings. 

The judge is now requiring her to continue attending at least 1 AA meeting per week. As we first reported, she's also back shooting 'RHOBH' ... so, this is definitely as good as Kim's been for a while.

Heather Dubrow Opens Up About Losing $2 Million in Business ‘Scam’
Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow says she and her husband, Terry, were scammed out of nearly $2 million -- and she’s opening up about the ordeal on her new podcast. Only ET was behind the scenes as she taped the episode.

“This was an accounting scam,” Dubrow tells ET. “Listen to Heather Dubrow's World, and I'm going to give you the details of what happened and why.”

The Dubrows are offering a $25,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of Jennifer Lindsey Bell, the woman they say is responsible. The Dubrows believe Bell fled the country.

“Right now, it's just about Jennifer Lindsey Bell,” Dubrow says. “Trying to get someone from another country and finding out where people are is a very interesting proposition.” 

Dubrow brought in bounty hunter Lil’ Zeke Unger to the show for assistance with the case.

“He's helped thousands of people and captured many, many, many people, so we're really hoping that he is going to help us,” Dubrow says. “His information that he gave us today is absolutely invaluable.”

“We felt we were making a calculated, risk-free investment and it turned out not to be so,” Dubrow continues. “And really, it comes down to a matter of trust. Who do you trust? Who can you trust? And, you know, you think you have people you've known for years and years, and it turns out they're not who you think they are.”

Dubrow says a longtime advisor set up the deal gone wrong.

“We're putting this story out there, not just to tell everyone, 'Hey, we lost almost $2 million,’” Dubrow adds. “But, you know, we feel responsibility. We found out later that these people that scammed us have scammed other people for millions and millions of dollars, and if Terry and I don't come out and go public with this, they will do it again.”

Jill Zarin Insists She's Been Cast in a Scripted Show
Jill Zarin, who you may remember as the redhead from the Real Housewives of New York who will not shut the hell up about being on the Real Housewives of New York even though it’s aired for three entire seasons without her, is still talking.

She bravely told Page Six that even though she misses the exposure and relevancy, she’s fine with no longer being on the show, adding that: “It’s not healthy for me.” 


Because Jill basically never had a storyline outside of her Fatal Attraction drama with Bethenny Frankel, she obviously dug that shit up yet again.
Alluding to Frankel, she added, “I heard that one of the girls doesn’t want me back on the show and that’s the way it is, she’s in charge.”
This of course is so tired and ridiculous because Bethenny wasn’t even on Seasons 5 and 6 and they STILL didn’t bring Jill’s ass back.

She eventually got to the fucking point about why she’s running her mouth this particular time.
“I actually got cast in a scripted series which I can’t talk about yet, which will start filming next summer,” she said. “It’s huge, it’ll change my life.”
Yeah ok, whatever girl. You can try to get your NeNe Leakes on if you want, but the world will most likely continue not to care.

“Tommy owns that house and she isn’t getting it in the divorce,” the source explained. “They had a pre-nup, so she had to walk away with nothing.”

“David is a millionaire,” the source said. “She’s not working, and he is paying all of her bills.”

This also includes fronting money for a NYC pad as well as the the California one.

Melissa Gorga on Teresa Giudice's Return from Prison Just in Time for Christmas: 'It's a Blessing'
With Teresa Giudice's prison release fast approaching, her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga says the family is ready for "a fresh start."

In an interview with PEOPLE Now, Gorga, 36, speaks candidly about Giudice's Dec. 23 return just in time for Christmas, which she calls "a blessing."

"I think it's gonna be a really nice Christmas this year," Gorga says. "I just think it's gonna be a lot of new beginnings, hopefully just a fresh start, especially for [Giudice]." 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 43, is serving out the end of her nearly yearlong prison sentence for fraud, and Gorga says she'll be happy to see her home for the holidays.  

"I get more happy about her children seeing her," Gorga says, adding that Giudice's family visits her frequently. "Everyone can't wait for that reunion for them … it'll be beautiful for her to be actually home with her family."

The 36-year-old gushes about hosting her family, in-laws and all, at her house for Christmas Eve, adding, "It should be a beautiful thing."

It looks like family time is key for both Gorga and the Giudice clan as Joe Giudice is preparing for his own 41-month prison sentence in March.

"I don't know how anyone prepares," Gorga says of Joe's impending sentence. "Spend a lot of time with your family, that's how you prepare."
