The Real Housewives of New York City season eight was reportedly going to move forward without Kristen Taekman, who has been accused of failing to have an interesting storyline. However, after Taekman’s husband, Josh, admitted to being one of the 30 million users of Ashley Madison, a source claims Bravo has changed their mind about booting her from the show.
On August 25, a source offered the following Real Housewives cast update to Real Mr. Housewife:RELATED: Sonja Morgan not surprised Kristen Taekman’s husband on Ashley Madison
“Kristen didn’t have much of a storyline this season, which is why Bravo was seriously considering canning her. However, Bravo loves a good scandal, sad as that may be, especially when it can play out for their cameras. Think of all of the drama this Ashley Madison reveal could bring to the show.”Taekman was brought aboard the Real Housewives‘ New York-based franchise during the show’s sixth season and continued her full-time role when season seven returned earlier this year. Then, as the season came to an end, the Real Housewives star was thrust into the spotlight after her husband admitted to having an account on Ashley Madison, a dating website that promotes affairs. While speaking to PEOPLE Magazine, Josh claimed he made a mistake by “foolishly” signing up for the site and offered an apology to his Real Housewives star wife and their two children.
“Unfortunately, this is bound to be a tough time personally for Kristen, but this will up her chances at a [Real Housewives of New York City] return for sure.”As the Inquisitr previously reported, rumors of Kristen Taekman’s possible firing from The Real Housewives of New York City first began swirling earlier this summer. At the time, a source told Page Six that Taekman’s feud with her Real Housewives co-star, Bethenny Frankel, wasn’t helping her cause when it came to returning for season eight.
“[Kristen Taekman] will probably not be invited back to the show because she doesn’t fit in and her story line is stale. It will be the nail in Kristen’s coffin. Bethenny wants her off the show. She is now the anchor. [Kristen Taekman] is likely departing.”OK! Magazine also spoke of the Real Housewives star’s possible exit, claiming she “has been way too boring. She didn’t bring enough drama to the cast.”

While Gamble showed off her ample cleavage, Gabi was hard to miss in a characteristically flamboyant outfit that consisted of pointed bust plates and sheer stockings acting as pants.But if the pair weren't showing off their blossoming friendship, they were posing for photos alongside fellow Housewives Lydia Schiavello.Gamble took to social media to show off the ultimate three-some and captioned their photo: 'The really undomesticated Housewives of Melbourne... Truly.'

Ever since Camille Grammer announced that she had been diagnosed with cancer in 2013, her fans and supporters have been eagerly hoping for her to have a full recovery. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gave HELLO! US an update on her health while attending the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards in West Hollywood.“It is much better," she told us at the Pump restaurant event. "Thank you. I’m here to support the Humane Foundation, but I have a great foundation that I’m very passionate about. It’s the Foundation for Women’s Cancer and I’m the chairman of the national race this year in Washington DC.”The mother-of-two spoke about why it was important for her to work with the Foundation, after going through her own battle with the disease. “It’s a huge honor and I’m so passionate about this because my mom had ovarian cancer, Stage 3. I had uterine cancer Stage 2. There’s so much awareness for breast cancer, and we all agree that that’s important, but there are other female cancers that need to be in the forefront also. So that’s my goal. To heighten and raise awareness and teach people to go to their doctor and learn their symptoms.”However, just because she was recovering from a serious illness, doesn’t mean Camille doesn’t want to have a personal life. She spoke about what it’s like trying to date while also recovering from her battle with cancer.“Well, I needed time to recover from chemo radiation," she admitted. "It was very hard after the surgery I had, a radical hysterectomy, to jump into a romantic situation. I do have great male friends and of course I have somebody very special in my life but I keep it, I don’t talk about it. Maybe down the road, but you know, I’m just taking everything slow.”

Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa recently flew to Israel for a very spiritual experience.RELATED: 'Real Housewives of Miami' - Where Are They Now?
"My trip in Israel is one I will always treasure but the most special and spiritual moment was getting baptized and being thankful for God and Jesus," the 36-year-old wrote alongside an Instagram photo of herself Wednesday in a flowy dress after the ceremony (she noted that the dress is a Michal Negrin original)
Krupa, a devout Catholic, told the New York Post's Page Six that she decided on the baptism (in the Jordan River) despite being baptized as an infant, saying, "As an adult I wanted to confirm my beliefs and to show thanks for my life and everything I have accomplished."
Krupa slipped into the Michal Negrin number after wearing an oversize white shirt (that featured a religious image on the front) above a pink and blue bikini for the baptism.
Photos of the biblical ceremony show Krupa emerging from the water, where Jesus is believed to have been baptized, with her arms in the air and a smile on her face.
Well, that's a first.RELATED: The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Shocker: Not a Fight, But a Snore
Andy Cohen has hosted hundreds of hours worth of Real Housewives reunions. He's seen tears, cat fights, walkouts and plenty of wine-chugging. But on Thursday night, Bravo's finest managed to lull a Real Housewives of New York City star to sleep.
Amid a bittersweet conversation about widows Carole Radziwell and Dorinda Medley bonding over their dead husbands, Ramona Singer gently nodded off.
"Do you want me to wake you when something happens regarding you?" Cohen asked, laughing.
Then, the cast went back to business, bickering over their doomed trip to Turks and Caicos, otherwise known as the sixth circle of hell.
Kristen Taekman, Heather Thomson and Radziwell were still being all, like, uncool about Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps letting a naked man into their vacation home, which led the ladies to debate the most pressing existential question of our time: What's the girl code?
"Ramona, it is completely inappropriate and sloppy of you to send a complete stranger that you met two hours ago upstairs," Taekman chastised. "That's gross and disgusting, and that, my friend, is breaking girl code."
Singer and de Lesseps explained that they got drunk at a karaoke bar and brought two guys home. Yes, de Lessep's was married/"getting divorced", but no, she insisted, they did not hook up – they just went for a platonic stroll on the sand!
"You didn't walk on the beach and play Parcheesi," Bethenny Frankel cracked.
Thomson's problem was that the "safety and security" of the sleeping Housewives was put at risk. ("It's a lot, Scarlett O'Hara," Frankel said, rolling her eyes.)
There was a lot of talk of de Lesseps' dalliance with the French Johnny Depp pirate man in St. Barths a few seasons ago, Singer admitted she should have just called a cab for her inebriated overnight guest, and Frankel declared the squabble "the most ridiculous argument in Housewife history."

Brandi Glanville may have figured out a way to stave off Joanna Krupa's defamation lawsuit ... by forcing Joanna to come clean about her vaginal odor.
Brandi's lawyer has fired off a series of written questions which Joanna must answer under oath, notably:
"Is it your contention in this lawsuit that your vagina and/or vulva are odorless? If yes, please explain with specificity why your vagina and/or vulva are odorless."
It would seem Brandi and her attorney are going down a path that could lead to some interesting courtroom testimony ... and demonstrations.
Yes, we'll be livestreaming.

Even a breakup from her boyfriend of four years can’t take the “woo-hoo!” out of Vicki Gunvalson. The Real Housewives of Orange County star just announced her breakup from Brooks Ayers this week, but we hear she’s back on the dating scene!RELATED: Tamra: Vicki Was on the Defensive
The OG from the OC reportedly is already looking ahead to the next season of the show, where she hopes to explore love with another man — someone she has yet to meet.
“The company that she owns is doing amazing and she has a lot to offer someone,” a source close to Vicki tells RadarOnline.com. “She does want to find someone to spend the rest of her life with and thinks that the right guy is definitely out there.”
Glad to hear her split hasn’t ruined her spirits! It can be hard being an empty nester and having no one to spend your free time with — well, aside from her dramatic pals like Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge. But all of Vicki’s RHOC co-stars are apparently very happy she’s called it quits with the controversial Brooks.
“Her co-stars are really glad that she is finally done with Brooks and are really looking forward to making her quest for love a part of the show. It will be fun for them,” the insider explains.
A mogul match! Bethenny Frankel is dating CNBC’s The Profit’s Marcus Lemonis, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.RELATED: ‘Real Housewives’ Star Bethenny Frankel Rips Ramona Singer Over Cheating Accusations on NY Reunion (Video)
“They met over the summer and have been seeing each other. He’s really smart, successful, and so nice. They really like each other,” a source tells Us of the Real Housewives of New York City star, 44, and the businessman, 41.
The couple have been enjoying their time in and out of the city, and attended Ron Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons dinner on Aug. 17 together, a second source tells Us.
Back in July, the Skinnygirl mogul gave Lemonis a shout-out on Twitter. “Couldn't sleep. Found @marcuslemonis on @TheProfitCNBC I like him & his way of doing business,” she shared with her followers.
Earlier this month the Bravo star joked about rumors she was dating friend and Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, and in March told Andy Cohen on WWHL that she didn’t know what kind of guy she was looking for. "I think the kind of guy that I would need to be with has to be able to handle me, which is a tall order,” she said.

Vicki Gunvalson Threatens to Take Meghan Edmonds Down in Intense Real Housewives of Orange County Fight
It's not often a Real Housewives star threatens another so openly, but that's just what Vicki Gunvalson did to Meghan King Edmonds on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Something tells us this won't be the only fight to go down in Heather Dubrow's gigantic (seriously, it is HUGE. She has 14 bathrooms!) mansion.
"I say this: Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus, he's cured. Don't you ever question if he has cancer again. I'll take you down!" Vicki shouted over the luncheon table at Meghan. "Is my mother still alive? Guess what? She's dead. How dare you! I'm shaking right now because I'm so upset with you."
Let's rewind: Tamra Judge brought her iPsychic (she had only previously consulted with him over Skype) to lunch with Heather and Meghan and he said he didn't see cancer in Brooks Ayers' life. Meghan, whose husband's ex-wife was battling cancer at the same time, had questioned Brooks' recent choices after he stopped chemotherapy and decided to go an alternative route. She shared her questions with Tamra, Heather and Shannon Beador, and Shannon couldn't complete her dinner with Vicki without spilling there was gossip. But, Tamra was the one who told Vicki exactly what the gossip was.
Vicki told Meghan she should assume the iPsychic meant Brooks was going to beat the cancer and that's thanks to Jesus. "We thank Jesus in advance for his healing, amen," Vicki said. "God has the answer, not a psychic."
"We're not going to talk about God," Meghan said.
The fight continued with fingers wagging and more threats.
"Shame on you," Vicki said.
"For what? Caring?" Meghan asked. "Do you realize you're upset with me for being concered? You're just an old woman who's bitter at the world."
"Old woman"? Those are fighting words.RELATED: Meghan: I Was Shocked at Vicki's Response to Me
Kristen Taekman‘s husband Josh on Monday admitted he used an Ashley Madison account, after reports surfaced linking him to the cheating website.RELATED: Kristen Taekman Takes Her Mind Off Husband Josh's Ashley Madison Scandal With Tori Spelling?! See Their Running Pics
“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,” Josh, 46, told People. “We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives.”
The husband of the stunning Real Housewives of New York star, who has an energy supplement business called EBOOST, initially denied the existence of the account to DailyMail.com, saying that “there’s not a shot in hell that [he’s] a subscriber,” and that someone was “fraudulently using [his] name and number.”
Josh, who has two kids with the outspoken blonde beauty — Cassius, 6, and Kingsley, 3 — was linked to the site since June 2011 under the email JTeezy012@gmail.com, which matches his Twitter handle, @Jteezy012. He paid for 62 transactions over that time, the website reported, adding that all activity on the account ceased in June of 2014.
Kristen told our friends at OK! last year that she was “really bummed about how he was portrayed” on the Bravo series, amid harsh feedback on social media.
“People are calling him a douche bag, and it really hurt him; he is not a douche bag,” she said. “The show made him seem much harsher than he really is. Josh is an amazing guy, and a wonderful father.”

Drink! Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds isn’t 100 percent real — the Bravo newcomer revealed to Us Weekly during a fun game of Never Have I Ever that she has breast implants. She also dished that she’s not opposed to marijuana and she’s willing to turn things up in the bedroom with husband Jim Edmonds!RELATED: Real Housewives of Orange County Sneak Peek: Vicki Lashes Out at Meghan for Doubting Brooks' Cancer Diagnosis
“It wasn’t fair because my mom always had boobs and was super skinny and I never did…so I had to pay for mine,” the pink-haired reality star tells Us. (Edmonds dyed her tresses in honor of her husband's ex-wife LeAnn, who lost her battle with cancer last month.)
The Season 10 newcomer, 30, also took a sip of bubbly when asked if she’s ever watched porn with someone else. “I have with my husband,” she admitted. “I think it’s disgusting usually.”
Also on her “have” list? The youngest Housewife revealed she’s smoked weed and eaten a whole pizza and cake by herself. “Who hasn’t done that? Aren’t we American?” she joked, laughing.
She hasn’t, however, joined the Mile High Club yet or gotten into a bar fight with another woman — a surprising revelation considering she stars on RHOC!
Listen, Kristen Taekman annoys the crap out of me with all her whining and that gross look she gets on her face when she's...surprised. Plus, she's a friend of Brandi's which makes me can't stand her even more. But damn, finding out your husband joined a notorious website for people looking to cheat...well, that just sicks.
The names continue to trickle out after the recent Ashley Madison hack.
The same hackers who threated to expose the identities of more than 37 million cheaters last month appeared to have followed through with their promise shortly after their security breach, and the latest name to surface is the husband of Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman.
E! News has learned that Josh Taekman had an account with the website, which is used for individuals looking to have an affair, and a source tells E! News that this new information could be the breaking point for this reality couple.
"Kristen is embarrassed by this entire situation," the insider tells us. "They have had their problems in the past but worked hard on them. This could be the final straw and the end of their marriage."
The couple, who are currently in Los Angeles as part of their EBOOST tour, have displayed some problems within their marriage on the small screen in the past.
During Taekman's debut on the reality show, fans quickly saw that there was tension between the duo from arguments that played out in front of cameras. Those interactions drew a number of negative reactions from viewers on social media, which became part of the reason they decided to not show Josh on-camera for the Bravo series anymore.

It’s unlikely that Caroline Manzo’s fans will ever see her on The Real Housewives of New Jersey again. On Monday night, Caroline, who starred on the show for Seasons 1 through 5 but now has her own spin-off with her family, Manzo’d with Children, appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live. While there, she answered what Andy called people’s No. 1 question for her: would she ever return to Real Housewives?
Caroline admitted that her returning to the show is a long shot but may happen if the paycheck is big enough.

Caroline’s Son Chris Manzo Now Lives In Jersey City, NOT Hoboken“No. Well, never say never.”“Not even for a a million dollars?” asked Andy. “We’ve had this conversation. You’re better to answer that question than me,” she replied. “You always add a lot of zeros to it,” Andy retorted.
Caroline’s reluctance to return to the show may have to do with the drama that comes with it. When asked if she’s proud of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Caroline admitted that there were times when she wasn’t.
“I would say that it’s a great show. I would say that in the later years it turned into something I wasn’t proud of. Um, I’m certainly grateful for it. It was an experience for myself and my family that I will never forget and forever be thankful for but I can’t say that I was proud of it all the time. No, I can’t say that I was proud of how I behaved all the time or the other ladies for sure. But um, as a network we should be proud of it I think.”Caroline also opened up about her relationship with her sister, Dina Manzo. If and when there is a Season 7 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn’t seem as if Dina will be on it, since she no longer lives in New Jersey.
“It’s my sister. She lives in California now — she moved out to L.A. But, as much as I can see her, I see her. We text and stuff like that.”When Andy asked Caroline about people’s fascination with her relationship with her sister, Caroline said that she’s over it.
“I am so over the level of fascination. It’s like, I don’t know what everybody wants from me. We’re friendly, we’re nice. Should I tweet every time we have coffee? Should I say every time we had a conversation? I think it’s bizarre.”Caroline also confirmed that her sister-in-law, Real Housewives star Jacqueline Laurita, also currently enjoys a “good” relationship with Dina.
Dina left the show after the first two seasons, but then returned for the sixth season, after Caroline left the show. For some reason that was never explained to viewers, Dina and Caroline’s relationship went south during Dina’s absence from the show, and they went years without seeing or talking to one another. Dina’s relationship with Jacqueline got even uglier. During the Season 6 reunion show, Dina said that she would never do a reality TV show with family ever again. She also said that she doesn’t want a relationship with Jacqueline and that she tried to make things right with Caroline and her other siblings. This caused Caroline to later bash Dina on Watch What Happens Live. Surprisingly, about a month later, in December, 2014, the two revealed via social media that they had patched things up.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Dina attended the wedding of her niece, Caroline’s daughter, Lauren Manzo, in July. Dina posted a photo of Lauren and her groom, Vito Scalia, at the altar and called the ceremony beautiful.

Has Kenya Moore found herself a new boo after that tragic "situationship" with her ex-“Millionaire Matchmaker” boo? It appears so. Peep the coupledom pics of Ms. Twirl and her possible new love interest Eugene Casciaro inside….RELATED: Kenya Moore Posts Photo of Likely ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Season 8 Cast (PHOTO)
Well…it looks like Kenya Moore just sealed the deal on her new storyline for the upcoming 8th season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Meet truck dealership owner Eugene Casciaro. Yesterday, we brought you pics of the “RHOA” beauty’s haircare launch in ATL and we noticed a man on Kenya’s arm. Nothing from the pics screamed they were dating, but now we have the two on our coupledom radar…after we did a little digging.
It appears the 44-year-old former Miss USA queen and the 40-year-old entrepreneur are getting quite cozy with one another. It’s clear he will at least make a cameo on one episode of “RHOA,” since cameras were rolling during her haircare launch a few days ago. But, he may be getting extra camera time as a new love interest of Kenya’s.
On Facebook, a friend asked Eugene if he would be making any appearances on the show, in which he responded, “Not my style to be on the show but yes I'm in an episode that filmed already... You just never know how they'll spin things ...”
And they're not just spending time together in front of the cameras. Earlier this month, Eugene posted a few pics of himself and Kenya in the stands while viewing a professional baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves in ATL. The twosome was all smiles as they snapped up a few coupledom selfies.
Eugene owns his own truck dealership, Nvision Truck Sales Inc, based in Atlanta. And we hear he makes a pretty penny from his business. From what we can tell, he’s a manly man who likes to enjoy outdoor and masculine activities, including monster fishing, hitting the gun range and he also enjoys golfing.
While it all looks good on paper...dude does have a rap sheet:
According to MugShots.com, back in 2009, Eugene was arrested in Dekalb County after being charged with a few felonies and misdemeanors, including obstructing a law enforcement officer, criminal damage to property, theft by taking and simple battery. Yikes!
He was jailed on July 13, 2009 then released the next day after posting a $15,200 bail. No word (that we could fine) on if he was actually convicted of those crimes.
All season long, Sonja Morgan has defended her business, her social status, her income and more in the face of criticisms from her Real Housewives of New York City costars. But Lady Morgan has had enough!

“I think the thing that bothered me the most about filming the reunion [and this past season] is the girls are very judgmental and critical of my past lifestyle that I had way before I married my ex husband,” she told Radar.
“At the reunion, they pretend like I don’t know the people I know, know the people I knew, or am going forward in my current social circle,” Morgan revealed. “They act like after my divorce, my standing and assets that I have worked very hard for are gone. They act as if I’m not living a wonderful lifestyle anymore with influential friends, contacts and clients.”
“Anyone who has been to a Sonja and the City production or event clearly sees I haven’t burned bridges with the social ties I have forged long before my marriage to a high profile American family,” she insisted.
In addition, she revealed, in one key reunion scene Carole Radziwill challenged her about saying she was friends with and used to party with “John John” Kennedy.
“I apologize to Carole for my private conversation with Dorinda back at our hotel room in Atlantic City about partying in the good old days with John John Kennedy,” she says. “But honestly, for her to say that John John didn’t party is simply not true. He had a very tight group of close friends that he enjoyed going out with. I was just reminiscing and didn’t mean slight her.”

It’s the end of the line for two “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars in the Jersey Shore.RELATED: Caroline Manzo Talks 'RHONJ' Teresa Giudice Friendship & Prison Status On Andy Cohen's 'WWHL'
Joe and Teresa Giudice lost their Manahawkin home on Tuesday in an Ocean County sheriff’s sale, with the bank taking control of the property at the minimum $100 bid, according to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office.
No one else bid on the home - which came at no surprise, since the couple owed $348,025 on the property, according to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office. Their main Montville home is also in foreclosure.
The auction has been delayed before, but the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the foreclosure of 49 Sylvia Lane.
Since the foreclosure sale proceeds were not enough to pay off the mortgage balance, the unpaid portion could be called a deficiency and the lender, America’s Servicing Company, could sue to collect its deficiency balance.
The couple owe millions of dollars after their failed bankruptcy, which resulted in a federal investigation into allegations they hid assets and failed to declare income, according to nj.com. The couple ultimately pleaded guilty ito bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.
Luann de Lesseps Regrets Behavior Towards Carole Radziwill: ‘I’m Sorry’ She Says While Changing Story
Luann de Lesseps may have survived one of the most dramatic season finales in the Real Housewives of New York‘s history, but she was the one who was shocking viewers. It is no secret that de Lesseps has held a grudge against Carole Radziwill ever since Carole started dating her personal chef, the young Adam.
Even though Luann de Lesseps may not have been planning to slam Carole during the finale party, it sounds like de Lesseps had some hurtful comments up her sleeve. One of the comments that really didn’t sit well with viewers was Luann’s joke about Carole not having any children of her own. Radziwill lost her husband to cancer and never remarried.
According to a new Bravo report, Luann de Lesseps is now sharing her side of the story. And while Luann does say that she is sorry for her comment, she doesn’t exactly appear apologetic.
“I wish that seeing Adam with Carole didn’t make me slightly queasy, but it did at that moment. I’m totally over this now, and I don’t care who Carole dates. I’m sorry that the line about children came out of my mouth; I wasn’t trying to be hurtful to Carole,” Luann de Lesseps writes in her blog.
The interesting thing here is how de Lesseps is changing her story. First, Luann wasn’t happy with Carole dating Adam because he was her personal chef. She felt it was breaking girl code. When that didn’t phase Carole, it became all about how Adam and her niece had dated. Radziwill explained that he had been very single when they met. Then, Luann de Lesseps added that “you don’t date the help” in her world. Now, the story is changing yet again. This time, Luann is upset at how Carole is being as a girlfriend. Where did this accusation come from?
“I have more of an issue with Carole’s behavior as a girlfriend. Her actions and her inability to be truthful have put a strain on our relationship, and I’m unsure of where it’s going in the future. This season has brought me much closer to Ramona, Sonja, and Bethenny, and I’m grateful to all the ladies for sharing their lives with me and with you,” Luann de Lesseps ends her blog.

There is finally hope for troubled former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards: RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that she is currently getting medical care after being subjected to a 5150 hold!RELATED: Kim Richards' ex: '90% of what you read is completely false'
Richards’ attorney confirmed the news to Radar after multiple sources revealed that she was hospitalized on a 5150 hold last week. In California, physicians can impose an involuntary 72-hour confinement on someone who is assessed to be a danger to themselves or others. Radar previously reported Richards’ family was pushing for the move.
“They were at the end of their rope trying to get her help and decided to force her to get it,” one insider said.
Richards was released after three days following the 5150, but is now hospitalized at another facility in Southern California.
“Kim finally realized that she needed help and is truly committed to getting it,” said a source. “She voluntarily checked into an inpatient facility in Orange County. The family has been very supportive of this move.”
Another insider claimed, “They told her she had to do it or she was cut off from all of them financially. It is tough love.”

In a new sneak peek of the "Real Housewives of New York City" reunion, the ladies continue to grill Morgan about her celebrity friends and parting past.
Carole Radziwill seemed particularly peeved about her costar's comment, which took place earlier this season when the ladies were partying in Atlantic City and Sonja had a tad too much to drink. Remember, Carole's late husband was John's cousin and the two families were very close.
"I get that you were drunk and it's kind of a funny thing to say, maybe. But it's not funny to me ... [and] that you never even said anything to me about it after," Carole said to Sonja. "No one who knew him called him John John first of all, and for you to say that you partied with John John is not okay, because he didn't party."
"You, talking about John John, who was my friend -- seriously, I just have to be me," Morgan exclaimed.
"This is her family we are talking about," Heather Thompson chimed in, coming to Radziwill's defense. "It's like if I talked about your daughter," Carole said to Sonja.
Of course, Countess LuAnn De Lesseps had to get a few words in too, "I am glad you are concerned about family, Carole," she quipped.
Clearly, the Countess is still a bit bitter that the "Widow's Guide" novelist is dating her niece's ex-boyfriend! -

Meghan Edmonds Teases Real Housewives of Orange County's Biggest Mystery: Does Brooks Ayers Have Cancer?
If there's one thing we know about the Orange County Housewives, it's the simple fact that they never hold back.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise that things get heated really quick Monday night after a psychic alleges to the cast that Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend Brooks Ayers doesn't have cancer.
"I'm the one who says what the psychic said and there's a lot of fall out from that," Meghan Edmonds teased to E! News exclusively while attending 102.7 KIISFM's Pre-Teen Choice Awards party. "I've been waiting for this episode since we wrapped filming. I think there's going to be a lot of strong opinions both ways."
Ever since the season trailer first aired, viewers have known that some co-stars have sympathy for Brooks' battle while others are a bit more skeptic.
"I have my own suspicions and therefore somewhat of a conclusion," Meghan shared with E! News. "At the same time, I've been really affected by cancer and that's why I think I feel so strongly about this because I see how cancer can rock everyone's world. Not just close relatives, but everybody."
LeAnn Edmonds Horton, who was previously married to Meghan's current husband Jim Edmonds, passed away last month after battling cancer.

As the new storyline plays out, Meghan is also preparing for her very first reunion. While she's already butted heads with some of her cast members, the blond beauty is confident she can hold her own.
"I feel confident that I can own anything that comes out of my mouth," she said. "I'm happy to apologize and learn from my mistakes but at the same time, I'm not going to defend something if I think I'm wrong. If I do think I'm right, I'm happy to defend myself."
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Peter Thomas’ lousy summer reportedly just got a whole lot worse.RELATED: Cynthia Bailey Is Launching a Handbag Line
RadarOnline is reporting Peter’s restaurant, Bar One, has been evicted from its second space since 2014. The site has obtained legal documents stating Cynthia Bailey’s husband owes $1,869 in back rent and fees on the Auburn Avenue property, which was never even able to open its doors to the public. Yikes!
More specifically, the owner of the Auburn Avenue building is demanding Peter pay $1,500 for the June rent, $250 in late fees and another $119 to cover the court filing fee.
This latest setback comes about a year and a half after Bar One was evicted from its original home in a different section of Atlanta via a $100,000 lawsuit which claimed Peter “breached a lease agreement by failing to pay rent and other fees including late fees, bank charges, real estate property taxes and unpaid utilities.” That lawsuit not only impacted Bar One, but also affected property used for The Bailey Agency, Cynthia’s modeling and fashion school.
As far as we know, Peter’s Sports One Charlotte is still thriving, but if this latest eviction is really happening it doesn’t bode well for Peter.
Earlier this summer, Peter was in hot water with his wife after video footage of him cozying up to another woman surfaced online. At the time Cynthia said, “My marriage is not perfect. We’re going to deal with this issue as husband and wife.”
Thankfully Cynthia’s expanding her successful line of sunglasses to include handbags, so if Peter does owe some money it should be a cinch to pay off!

Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has broken up with Brooks Ayers.RELATED: Meghan King Edmonds Calls Vicki Gunvalson ‘Old Grandma’ Who Has ‘Aged Out,’ Vicki Says She’ll Try To Get Meghan Fired
The Bravo star, 53, announced the split from her boyfriend of four years in a joint statement on her Facebook page.
"After much prayer, thought, counseling, and consideration, we have decided to end our four year relationship," the couple wrote. "We both wish nothing but a great future for each other.
"We have come to realize that one can indeed love someone in their heart, but that the time may come for their lives to take separate paths," the statement continued. "Though the remaining episodes of Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Orange County will show us as a couple, the filming took place in January 2015 through May 2015. There will be no further statements or interviews regarding our relationship as we choose to move on with our lives.
"Though we choose to live our lives in the public eye we thank you for your understanding and ask privacy during this difficult time."
Gunvalson and Ayers's romance hasn't always been smooth. Back in 2013, the pair announced that they had split up but reunited in 2014 after they learned that Ayers had cancer. Gunvalson's daughter, Briana Culberson, has also been vocal about her disliking of Ayers.
It's been a rough year for Gunvalson, who learned about the death of her mother while filming the 10th season of RHOC. In the episode, which aired in July, Gunvalson collapses on the floor after Culberson tells her the news.
Police were called to Joe Giudice's beach house in New Jersey on Saturday after an argument with a neighbor got out of control.
A witness tells TMZ Joe's oldest daughter Gia was locked out of the house and trying to get in for several minutes. Once Joe finally let her inside, he could be heard screaming at Gia from the backyard ... that's when a neighbor stepped in.
We're told the woman approached Joe's house and the two got into a shouting match. The neighbor could be heard yelling, "this guy is crazy, he's dangerous, call the cops."
Officers arrived to diffuse the situation and we're told Joe's daughters were begging them not to arrest their father.RELATED: Andy Cohen: Teresa Giudice Is "Really Funny in Her Emails" From Prison
A law enforcement source says no arrests were made and the argument was settled peacefully.
A rep for Joe says the whole thing started because Joe was having a party and the neighbor felt it was inappropriate for children to be around.

The feud between sisters and former The Real Housewives of New Jersey costars Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo played out publicly for years, while at the same time the real reason for the rift was kept pretty vague. But the two have since buried the hatchet. How? Caroline reveals what happened between the two in the exclusive clip from Manzo'd With Children below.RELATED: Lauren Manzo reflects on a 'Real Housewives' family wedding [video]
"I think it was a crazy phone call from me that did it," Caroline explains in the clip below.
While discussing Lauren Manzo's bridal shower (spoiler alert, she's married now!), Caroline and sister-in-law and another former RHONJ costar Jacqueline Laurita, touch upon the very Bravo-heavy guest list. Melissa Gorga agreed to attend. Kathy Wakile and sister Rosie Pierri also made plans to attend, and Caroline sent an invite to...Dina. Lexie, Dina's daughter, was part of Lauren's bridal party after the family came together for the holidays, including Thanksgiving and Christmas, in 2014.
Was it really just a simple phone call that ended the years-long rift?
"Here's the deal: My sister and I had a falling out. We didn't speak for a couple of years," Caroline said in her confessional. That changed when she got a text from Dina asking why she was being so nasty. Caroline shot a text back and then said they need to meet.
"I didn't tell a soul," Caroline said of the meeting. "We met for five and a half hours. From then on? Everything's fine. She's here for the holidays, she talks to my kids, Lexie's in the bridal party and we could all go on living. Thank you very much."
Dina and Jacqueline also made up.
"You're all very kind. Things have been good for a bit just wanted to keep it private for a minute~Not everything needs to be done w cameras," Dina tweeted in December.
"Life is too short, and that's why for my three children I will do everything in my power to make sure they don't hurt me the way my parents hurt," Caroline says in the clip. "Because I saw it first hand and it's no way to live."
Joanna Krupa is dragging several other Beverly Hills 'Housewives' into her defamation lawsuit against Brandi Glanville, TMZ has learned.
Joanna's lawyer fired off a letter requesting 4-hour sit-downs with Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster and Yolanda's ex-husband Mohamed Hadid. Brandi has said she only repeated the "smelly vagina" insult from comments she heard from Lisa, Yolanda and Mohamed.
It does raise the issue ... why didn't Joanna sue the trio, in addition to Brandi, who blasted the insult on "Watch What Happens Live."

Lizzie Rovsek decided not to return full time to The Real Housewives of Orange County last year because she felt bullied by Tamra Barney. Many felt that Tamra was insecure about Lizzie, who was sweet, had a loving family, and was growing her business. Plus, Lizzie had bigger breasts, which must have done something to Tamra, because she kept bringing it up.
But everything went downhill when Barney’s husband, Eddie, essentially paid Lizzie Rovsek a compliment in a game. And when Barney started talking behind everyone’s back, Lizzie called her out on it. The dramatic confrontation went down in Bali, and Rovsek still has bad memories of the cast trip.
According to a new Bravo report, Lizzie Rovsek is now revealing that the last dinner in Mo’orea was almost perfect until all hell broke lose. This is almost the same thing that happened last year when the ladies were in Bali, so Lizzie felt odd about the entire situation. In fact, Rovsek felt that it was almost a repeat, since Tamra was also the focus of this season’s drama.RELATED: Lizzie Rovsek On Negative Pregnancy Test: Is She Changing Her Mind About A Third Baby?
“It was almost a perfect night, but of course, all hell had to break loose. Luckily, I wasn’t involved in any of the drama that transpired. Last year’s trip to Bali ended horribly, and I felt very burned from last year. My plan tonight is to stay out of the drama as much as possible and hopefully try and keep the peace,” Lizzie explains.
Lizzie isn’t interested in the drama anymore. Rovsek quit The Real Housewives of Orange County to get away from it and focus on her business. And yet, she is back as a friend of the wives and the drama continues with Barney right in the middle.
“I think Shannon’s comment about Tamra being a ‘pot-stirrer’ was taken completely out of context. The truth is Tamra was the source of a lot of conflict last year. As far as I can say, Tamra is a new person this year. It did stir things up a little bit,” Lizzie Rovsek reveals, adding that last year’s drama was still fresh.
“I was a little on edge this trip just in the aftermath from last year and I can see how Shannon could have been too. I honestly think Shannon was trying to give Meghan advice on how ‘pot stirring’ works in this group.”
Real talk time. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and former cast member Camille Grammer opened up to Us Weekly and other reporters on Thursday, Aug. 13, about Kim Richards, who was recently hospitalized amid ongoing struggles with sobriety.
"Well, I'm sorry Kim's not here because of the situation," Vanderpump told Us at her Hero Dog Awards Benefit Luncheon, which was held at her West Hollywood restaurant PUMP. "That's the thing. But I think her sobriety is more important than any reality show. And I think a lot of people recognize that fact and that's probably why she's not in this season."
The Vanderpump Rules star told Us that she last reached out to Richards during her stint in rehab earlier this summer. "But not since then," she noted. "I'm not that close to Kim, obviously I'm closer to Kyle. I’ve heard updates and stuff. But it's a sad situation."
Richards, 50, was arrested this past April on charges of public intoxication, battery, and resisting arrest, after she caused a scene at the Beverly Hilton. She then checked into rehab. Last month, she celebrated her first 30 days of sobriety in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"I went in and I got to learn a whole lot about myself," Richards told ET of treatment. "I dug deep into my past, things that happened to me as a child, good and bad, teenage years, relationships with all my loved ones, where they need to be mended, where they're very powerful. I worked on me."
Less than two weeks after that interview, on Aug. 2, the former child star was arrested when she was caught shoplifting from a Target store in California's San Fernando Valley. According to police, Richards was suspected of walking out of the retailer with nearly 100-plus items worth nearly $600 total.
Like Vanderpump, Grammer hasn't spoken to the troubled reality star recently. "I was on vacation in Hawaii. But I will reach out to her soon," the veteran RHOBH star told Us. "I mean, I feel bad for Kim. My thoughts and prayers are with her and I support her and I just want her to know I'm here for her if she needs anything."

Report Says Teresa Giudice Will Return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey After Her Prison Sentence
Real Housewives is the new black. An insider reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly that Teresa Giudice will return to Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey after she completes her 15-month jail sentence for fraud this December.
“She’s definitely back next season,” says the source of the 43-year-old mom of four (with husband Joe Giudice), who is currently incarcerated in Connecticut.
Teresa is already working on a memoir, which will include details of her time behind bars. Us had the exclusive sneak peek at excerpts from her diary, which include details about prison fights, what she’s eating, and more.
“She's all set to profit off her prison stint,” says another insider.
Profit or not, the arrangement for her return to the hit reality show is a win-win. As a show source points out, “There is no Jersey without Teresa.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams will not be silenced. After the blog Media Take Out ran a credit check on her and discovered she “owed money all over Atlanta,” the Bravo reality star issued a statement on Twitter and Instagram.RELATED: Porsha Williams On Debt Situation: Kordell Stewart Partly To Blame?
Williams said she was in debt because of her failed marriage to former NFL star Kordell Stewart. “No one can expect to leave a divorce without scars, but guess what? God is my healer and my past does not predict my future,” she said of her two-year marriage, which ended in 2013.
Ford Motor Company and her condo reportedly are garnishing her check from Bravo, MTO said. “We're happy to help y'all embarrass her a-- on national TV,” the blog said. “Just make sure you give us credit.”
But Williams, 34, said the article would not faze her. “I’m in a better place and your evil will not ruin my day. I’m working hard rebuilding and I’m extremely successful with a lot of love and support!” she wrote. “No one will steal my joy or shame me, so kick rocks and find someone else to try [to] destroy!”
