Teresa Giudice has barely been out of prison a month now, and the drama in her life is already heating up!RELATED: Dina Manzo And Jacqueline Laurita Respond To Danielle Staub’s Tell-All
RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Giudice, 43, got into a major battle with her Real Housewives of New York City costar Jacqueline Laurita, 45, on Dec. 22.
“Jacqueline and Teresa had a big fight on camera Friday night,” a source close to production told Radar.
According to the source, “Teresa is the one who started the fight.”
“She approached Jacqueline first,” the source said. “Teresa was insinuating that Jacqueline was calling her friends and new cast members to make friends with them while she was jail.”
Jacqueline didn’t appreciate the confrontation.
“It escalated into a huge fight,” the source noted.
After arguing about allegiances, the fight turned into a debate about Giudice’s legal problems.
“The fight was about who was phonier and whose fault it was that Teresa went to jail,” the source said. “It was the fact that Teresa is still blaming everyone else for her legal problems and Jacqueline thinks Teresa is in denial.”
“Jacqueline’s like, ‘Every week it’s somebody else you’re blaming,'” the source continued. “Teresa was still screaming, ‘We had nothing to do with it. I shouldn’t have had to go to jail.’ It was everybody’s fault.”

Got out for a movie this weekend, thanks to my girlfriends who push me sometimes. Saw the comedy, Sisters, and got a good laugh! Best line from the movie: "A house is a building, a home is a feeling." That's exactly what it's starting to feel like around here! Feeling blessed with each day as my heart creates its space!
Tonight's show was disheartening. Still, I am the subject of conversation amongst "friends." Looks like I got out of dodge right on time at that barbecue. The only thing I saw grilling was gossip...I have nothing to prove and know that my journey is public due to the job I've chosen as a Housewife, but I can't accept something so delicate as my children's health being talked about in such a way. I know I'm not the only mother who would speak to this… It's one thing when your integrity is doubted, spoken of behind your back, but it strikes another cord when it's your children.
Bella and Anwar were diagnosed at the end of 2013 and have been in extensive holistic treatment ever since. It's very common for multiple family members to be affected by Lyme disease. The children and I lived on a horse ranch in Santa Barbara for 10 years and spent the majority of our time outside in nature.
Bella had to give up her lifelong dream of having a professional riding career and a shot at the Olympics due to her severe symptoms and inability to ride.This was the biggest heartbreak of her life and an extremely sensitive subject for her. She is resilient and focused on a new direction--she's made a name for herself in the modeling industry while she struggles with symptoms of chronic Lyme every day.
Anwar still does regular Ozone/UVI treatments and has had great success with LDI. I am glad to say that he is doing much better and finished a football season with great scores and healthy energy.
Both of them are under the care of Dr. Detrich Klinghardt and have made good progress this past year.
With Mohamed's support, I have managed my children's healthcare on a daily basis since the day they were born. It is up to no one but us to make claims toward their health status. Shame on those who think it's OK to spread rumors and provoke doubt about something so heart wrenching.RELATED: Lisa Vanderpump Expresses Regret After Questioning Yolanda Foster's Children's Lyme Disease
As I see the story unfold in front of me, I am just grateful that I exist in a very different vibration!
With all the dirt being thrown around at Kyle's barbecue, it went totally unseen--the efforts she made to host friends, set a beautiful table, and probably the blessing that it is not only to have the present but to have it blessed with food on the table. Our completely overprivileged lives are taken for granted if this is how we choose to spend our time.
I heard the words, morals, and values on tonight's episode but saw a completely different interpretation of what I think those words mean. I choose to live in the present, because when you suffer from chronic illness, you don't have a choice. It's day by day, one foot in front of the other. When there is a good day, you soak up that moment. Those "good selfie" moments are captured because they're a gift.
Ashley Darby promised to bring 'spice to the lives' of the women on The Real Housewives of Potomac.The boisterous former beauty queen lived up to her claims as she made her first appearance on the new Bravo reality show with a series of lewd remarks at a party.Ashley, 26, was throwing a bash for her charitable organization Sip With Socialites when she met cast members including Katie Rost, Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon at the event.
And she soon turned heads with a series of quirky comments, admitting that she was planning when to start trying for a baby as 'I need a Gemini or Leo baby.'But she shocked them even more when they started asking about her Australian husband who is aged 55.
Ashley quickly bragged: 'He has a really big penis, swear to God.'As people from the table behind them quickly turned her way, Gizelle was first to pass judgment, calling her 'THOT-ish', referring to the slang term for 'that hoe over there.'

Eileen Davidson says she spent years blaming herself for domestic abuse she suffered during two different relationships.RELATED: Lisa Vanderpump Questions Eileen Davidson's Need Share History Of Physical Abuse
"It's a feeling that you can't live without them, even if they hit you. It's 'Oh maybe I did something to make this happen. It's me,' " the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills told Jenny McCarthy on her SiriusXM show Dirty, Sexy, Funny Tuesday. "I was so afraid of being alone I just had to have a boyfriend. I was very codependent. Extremely codependent. I would break up and then I would find a reason to put it on myself. 'He hit me because of this. I'm so sorry. I made you do that.' "
She said in addition to blamign herself for the abuse, another trap she fell into was the notion that she could "save" her abusive partners from themselves in hopes she could change them.
Davidson, 56, opened up on the last season of RHOBH about the abuse she suffered in two relationships, one as a teenager and one in her early 20s. She told McCarty the response she received online was humbling.
"It was mind-blowing. So many tweets from people who are still in those relationships," said Davidson.
She also spoke on Larry Flick's Sirius XM show about the abuse.
"It's a cycle. It just grows," she said. "You get caught up in this whole thing that you don't want to be alone and you can't handle life on your own, and maybe subconsciously think you deserve this."

A member of the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' (RHOA) show is facing an assault charge after an alleged incident inside a bar that he owns in Charlotte.RELATED: 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Recap: Cynthia Bailey Accidentally Fans the Fire Between Kim Fields and Kenya Moore
According to court officials, a criminal summons has been issued for simple assault against Peter Thomas. Thomas is the husband of Cynthia Bailey and has been on the RHOA for five seasons.
Thomas opened Sports One Bar, along the 500-block of North College Street, in 2014.
According to a police report, officers were called to the uptown Charlotte bar early Sunday morning around 1:25 a.m.
A 45-year-old man told police he was assaulted in the bar. The man called WBTV and claimed Thomas assaulted him.
According to the police report, officers consulted with an off-duty police officer and a witness to the alleged incident and determined no assault occurred.
Monday, a Mecklenburg County judge reviewed the police report and issued a summons for Thomas' arrest on simple assault. As of Monday afternoon, that summons had not been served.
WBTV reached out to Sports One for comment, but has not heard back.
Kim Richards is mourning the loss of her ex-husband Monty Brinson, who passed away at age 58 following a battle with cancer.RELATED: Brandi Glanville Says She And Kim Richards Should Be Paid By ‘RHOBH’ ‘Hookers’
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is "crushed," a source tells E! News, adding that Kim and Monty "were still very close, right up until the end."
"Monty had actually been in hospice the past few weeks. It's sad, but he had been at Stage 4 for a very long time. In a way, he beat the odds [surviving as long as he did]," a source tells E! News. But while his death might not have been a complete shock, that doesn't make dealing with the loss easier for those who loved him. Kim, in particular, is struggling with grief.
"Everyone's worried about Kim in the same way they're always kind of worried about her," says a source. "No one wants to see Kim's health take a step backwards because of grief."
Kim, 51, struggled publicly with her sobriety over the past year. She had run-ins with the law in April and again in August and was sentenced to 36 months of probation, 300 hours of community service and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings (a minimum of one per week).
The RHOBH star has kept a low profile and spent the past several months focusing on her health. Kyle Richards told E! News in October that her sister Kim was doing much better, adding that she was "doing what she needed to do to take care of herself."

Sheree Whitfield’s got a serious problem to deal with, and for once it has nothing to do with her yet-to-be-completed home, Chateau Sheree.RELATED: Sheree Whitfield on Kenya, NeNe’s Return & Ed Hartwell’s Engagement
Turns out the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member is being tormented by a man on Twitter who has been harassing her from several accounts. He even threatened her life and detailed how he planned to travel to her home and kill her.
Sheree explained the terrifying ordeal in a series of now-deleted tweets. In one message, the 46-year-old even included a screenshot of the death threat.
The language was vulgar and violent. Sheree tells a concerned follower she promptly took action and filed a police report after receiving that tweet. The mother of three also alerted Twitter to the issue, tagging the company in several tweets to let them know she was being threatened.
We’re guessing law enforcement officials urged Sheree to delete the tweets so as not to bring any more attention to this person.
The She By Sheree designer hasn’t sent out any more messages since last night, January 19, but we trust she’s taking all the necessary precautions to ensure her safety as well as her family’s.
Lisa Rinna is in mourning.RELATED: Lisa Rinna’s ‘Playboy’ Past Exposed, ‘RHOBH’ Star Wonders Why She Judged Erika Girardi [Photo]
The star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills announced via her Instagram and Twitter accounts Thursday that her father, Frank Rinna, has died in his early 90s. Sharing a picture of her parents, the Melrose Place star informed her followers, "The World lost a Great Man today......Heaven got a great Angel. I love you Dad." Lisa took a photo of "one of my Dads beautiful Paintings," in addition to a picture from her wedding day, and shared it with her fans.
Lisa thanked people for support via Twitter, writing, "Thank you for all of your kind messages. My family and I so appreciate all of the love. Dad passed singing 'My Way' Sinatra was his fav."
As viewers of her show well know, Lisa's father had been suffering from poor health for a while. Frank was treated for pneumonia in a local hospital last April, his fourth time doing so that year.
In a 2014 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa visited her childhood home in Medford, Ore. "I have a lot of guilt being so far away. It's really, really hard," she said, adding that her dad "fought through" his health issues "because I don't think he can leave [my mom]." As she prepared to sell her family's house, Lisa said it wasn't easy "letting go of your childhood."
The actress, who has two daughters with husband Harry Hamlin, continued, "What I'm realizing now is that I'm the adult. I'm taking care of my parents. You never prepare for that." In the same episode, Frank also praised his wife, Lois Rinna, who'd recently suffered a stroke. "She's my rock," he said. Lisa shared his sentiments, saying, "My mom is the Rock of Gibraltar. She always had everything together. It's hard not having your parents be young and not full of life."

As any avid Real Housewives of New York fan would know, Ramona Singer is particular about her hair. And that’s putting it lightly. Just the thought of damaging her blowout provided a multi-episode arc, two different wine-throwing confrontations and even drew (literal!) blood. But the reality show star recently gave Lux Beauty Club extensions a try and not only was there no drama, she’s now so obsessed that she’s partnering with the brand.RELATED: Ramona Singer Gives Mystery Man A Lap Dance At Sushi Restaurant
Singer opted for a bob back in 2009, telling PEOPLE, “I’m renewing myself. I went to Oscar Blandi and I wanted to get my hair trimmed. I needed a new look. Afterward I said, ‘Oh, my God, I feel like an older Cameron Diaz’ — very sexy and chic and young and hip. I loved it.”
And after seven years on the Ramona Coaster, she was ready for yet another change this season. PeopleStyle caught up with Lux Beauty Club co-founder, Victoria Flores who says Singer started embracing extensions a month or so ago.
Even though the two have known each other for years, Singer always avoided from extensions out of fear they would damage her hair. Flores finally talked her into them, and Singer agreed to sport them just in time for the latest season.
After “loving” her new look and feeling “10 years younger,” Singer decided she wanted to partner with the brand.
“It was her idea,” Flores says. “She said she loves this product and that she only works with companies she believes in, and that she’d like to somehow become a partner. So we said absolutely.”
We always knew there was more to Brandi Glanville’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills exit!It's always somebody else's fault but her's.
When Brandi first announced she was leaving the Bravo show back in June, she didn’t clarify if she was fired or leaving of her own accord.
But on this week’s premiere of Kocktails With Khloe, the former model finally set the record straight.
“They didn’t ask me back full-time,” Brandi said, in response to Khloe Kardashian’s question on whether she was let go from the show. “I was really counting on the paycheck as a single mom.”
When asked to explain the reasoning behind her firing (or downgrading? It’s unclear), the mother of two held one person in particular responsible: RHOBH exec producer and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.
“Well, I did tell Andy Cohen to ‘f—k off,’” the 43-year-old admitted. “Not only on TV and via text and via email and via Twitter.”
Yikes — that’ll do it!

Brooks Ayers is planning to release a tell-all book to help revamp his tarnished reputation after the controversy surrounding his cancer story. However, none of his story will include Vicki Gunvalson.RELATED: Vicki Gunvalson Looks Happy While Celebrating $132,000 Settlement From Brooks Ayers During Mexico Getaway
Due to a contract he signed with Gunvalson before they dove into their five-year romance, he is obligated to keep anything regarding her and her family out of the novel.
"Vicki is not at all concerned about her former boyfriend writing a book," Gunvalson's rep said in a statement to E! News. "He can write whatever he wants except he cannot write about Vicki, her career, family or anything else concerning her. Vicki long ago had the boyfriend sign a fiercely written and executed confidentiality agreement. He cannot write about her at all. That was signed in the very beginning [of their relationship]."
This conflicts with the plans Ayers revealed to Page Six last week about exposing Gunvalson's 28-year-old daughter, Briana Culberson, who he blames for much of his damaged reputation.
"[She] hates my guts," he told the publication. "And got paid handsomely the past three seasons to do nothing but bring drama into her own mom's life regarding me. I'm going to expose all of that."
Obviously, his contract with Gunvalson includes keeping her daughter out of the story as well.
Real Housewives of Atlanta producers want NeNe Leakes to return full time next season, RadarOnline.com has learned, but the diva is refusing. So according to insiders, her bosses are threatening to cut her involvement from Fashion Police as punishment!RELATED: BLOOP! NeNe Says Kenya Thinks She’s the Queen Bee of Real Housewives
Leakes’s involvement with Season Eight of the hit Bravo show was minimal, but still translated to higher ratings. Now, “Bravo execs want to bring NeNe back full time next year,” an insider told Radar. “The fans miss NeNe and even though there is tons of drama this year without her, with her back, it would just take the show to the next level.”
“NeNe isn’t ready to return to the show next year, however,” the source said. And NBC Universal is now getting involved.
The parent company of Bravo, NBC Universal also oversees E!, the home of Leakes’s new gig Fashion Police. And according to the source, they’re considering yanking her spot there if she won’t do RHOA.
“NeNe loves being a part of Fashion Police, but the network is ready to cut ties if she doesn’t agree to their terms,” the insider told Radar.
“NeNe seems to think she is better than doing reality television and has moved on from RHOA,” the source claimed. “Going back would be a step back in her plan to become a global brand. She has a clothing line, and no longer wants to be associated with a reality show.”
Leakes, 48, returned to RHOA on a recent episode, and worked with Cynthia Bailey to repair their friendship in the aftermath of season 7.
Our source added, “RHOA continues to be the crown in Bravo’s crown and the network wants it to shine. With NeNe.”

Kathryn Edwards is about to enter The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.RELATED: Who Is Faye Resnick on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
The former model, 51, makes her debut on the Bravo show Tuesday, which will see her have a confrontation with Faye Resnick.
"It was a long time coming," Edwards tells PEOPLE.
The feud dates back to the early 1990s, when Edwards and her then-husband Marcus Allen were friends with O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson. In 1994 after Nicole's murder, Resnick, 58, published a book claiming Edwards' then-husband Allen had an affair with Nicole while he was engaged to Edwards – claims both Edwards and the former NFL star have denied.
Edwards says Resnick's book, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, was published without Resnick reaching out to her about its claims.
"She never met me. She didn't know me. That always bothered me, that she acted like she did," says Edwards. "I waited a long time. I'm one of those people who can wait for a lifetime to say what I have to say to somebody. It was good. I was happy to get it off my chest."
Ahead of joining RHOBH, Edwards says she was unsure what her relationship with Kyle Richards would be like, as the star is close friends with Resnick – but Edwards and Richards have become close.
"She's a great girl and my husband [former NFL star Donnie Edwards] and her husband [Mauricio Umansky] hit it off, and so it's a nice little friendship there," says Edwards. "I think Kyle is going to let Faye and I figure it out on our own. [The book] was before she was friends with Faye. It is what it is."

Phaedra Parks has long said she won’t take her young sons to see their jailed dad, Apollo Nida, in prison because she doesn’t want to confuse or upset them. However, in a new Real Housewives of Atlanta sneak peek, the entertainment attorney appears to be having a change of heart.RELATED: Apollo Nida: Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker They Pick Up My Prison Calls!!!
In the teaser for the January 24 episode, Phaedra meets with her lawyer, who suggests bringing Ayden, 5, and Dylan, 2, to see Apollo for the first time since he reported to federal prison in Kentucky amid chaos in September 2014.
Apollo is currently serving eight years behind bars for money laundering and bank fraud.
“We’ve talked about you taking the children to prison,” Phae’s lawyer begins.
“I think I’m ready,” the mom of two answers.
This was shot several months ago, so Phaedra has had time to change her mind again.
When Apollo moved to a more relaxed facility in New Jersey late last year, he’d hoped it would mean a better chance of seeing his boys, However, his estranged wife reportedly consulted experts earlier this month who agreed a prison visit would be harmful to Ayden and Dylan.
There's a new "Housewife" in Beverly Hills -- and ETonline has your exclusive first look at her debut.Model Kathryn Edwards joins the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week, bumping into her old pal, Lisa Rinna, at co-star Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant, PUMP.

But, apparently, not much has changed… at least for Kathryn."She's either sold her soul to the devil, or she has some sort of special cocktail that she drinks, because she looks exactly the same," Lisa says in a confessional, before giving a double bird-flip to the camera.The ladies' conversation abruptly cuts off when Lisa brings up O.J. Simpson, so we'll have to tune in this Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo to see what that's about.Kathryn's ex-husband was rumored to have had an affair with Nicole Brown Simpson after her separation from the football star in 1992. Those allegations reportedly first surfaced in Faye Resnick's 1994 tell-all memoir, published after Nicole's death.

*Kenya Moore is still trying to heal from being abandoned as a child by her mother, and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is opening up about the trauma in an upcoming memoir titled, “Invisible.”
Moore has released the first 42 pages of her memoir, in which she painfully described the rejection she experienced from her birth mother.RELATED: Lori Moore, Kenya Moore’s Aunt on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’
“There it was again, the sweet melody quality of her voice,” Moore wrote, describing a phone call between she and her mother that took place when she was 4. “It was mild and soothing. When she spoke, she did not yell or scream. Instead, she released the words in a steady, easy manner: ‘I am not your mother. You can never call me your mother, and you can’t come over here anymore.’”
Moore goes on to credit her grandmother for providing her with a loving, well-rounded upbringing.
“I clearly understand that I owe my life to [my grandmother]. I could have been in a home being abused. Instead, God looked out for me and gave me a family and love”—but she was never able to shake the sense of abandonment that stemmed from her mother who refused to claim her.
“I would infrequently visit the Moores [my mother’s family] against my mother’s wishes, often to see my favorite cousin Tamica, who was becoming a big sister to me,” Moore wrote. “Everyone in the Moore house treated me normally except for my mother.”
Kenya won Miss Michigan USA in 1993 at age 22, and then became the second African American woman to win Miss USA. Moore has been a co-star on RHOA since its 2012 fifth season premiere, and last year she was a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice” season 7.
Additionally, she founded the Kenya Moore Foundation, a charity which awards scholarships to underprivileged girls from her highschool alma mater.

The ex-couple of "Real Housewives Of Orange County," Brooks Ayers and Vicki Gunvalson, have been living their separate lives for quite a while now.RELATED: ‘RHOC’ Vicki Gunvalson’s Sweet Revenge — Cancer Scammer Brooks Ayers Ordered To Pay Her $132k
However, it seems like the coast has not yet been cleared as viewers, and their co-stars are still disappointed with Ayers' fake cancer scandal last year.
Rumors have been circulating that Ayers and Gunvalson are back together and the actress just wanted to keep their reconciliation a secret, but the TV star denied the speculations.
"Omg this is completely FALSE!" She said according to Inquisitr. "I have not seen him since he moved out in August!... He has caused me too much damage and heartache to ever have him in my life again."
Brooks Ayers reportedly revealed that he has a tell-all book, which he plans to release soon.
"This book from Brooks will talk about how they made it look like he faked cancer and more," Inquisitr wrote in a post. Brooks Ayers is still insisting that he did not fake cancer, regardless of what anyone thinks of him."
Reality Tea reported that Ayers' has been planning to expose the secrets of all the people who has done him wrong including his ex-lover Vicki Gunvalson.
"They basically pitched me as this poor guy from Mississippi preying on a vulnerable, successful, self-made woman," Ayers said. "I'm not bound contractually by anything to not share the intel about what transpires behind production, Bravo, what they try to do, etc."
Charrisse Jackson Jordan, 50, calls Potomac, MD home, but unfortunately, her husband Eddie Jordan, 60, lives in New Jersey where he works as the head coach of Rutgers University’s basketball team.RELATED: 'The Real Housewives of Potomac': Season 1 taglines revealed
But despite being separated by over 200 plus miles, the Real Housewives of Potomac star claims that she doesn’t ever worry about what her husband is up to across the state borderline.
“No I don’t,” Jordan told OKMagazine.com.
According to Jordan, the key to making their relationship work is talking to each other.
“We have an open line of communication,” she said. “We talk every morning [and] do face time, [which] kind of makes you feel present.”
Plus it helps that Eddie has a regular schedule.
“My husband’s not very social,” she explained. “So his routine is very predictable. He goes to work and then he goes home. Not much in between unless he can get in a game of golf. But outside of golfing, my husband really doesn’t do a whole lot.”
But despite their constant communication, living in separate places can get trying.
“Sometimes I miss him,” Jordan admitted. “With my kids, they are in school. My son is playing basketball. He has his schedule, and his season and my husband’s season overlap, so it becomes difficult to get there as much. It’s challenging in that sense. ”
Jordan still visits with her husband often though.
“I’m from New Jersey, so I’m in New Jersey a lot actually,” she said. “We had a home there in New Jersey prior to him getting this job, so we used to frequent New Jersey all the time anyway. So it’s already part of our regiment — going back and forth to New Jersey.”
“We see him as much as we can,” she continued.

It looks like post-prison, Teresa Giudice might be a changed woman. A Real Housewives of New Jersey source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the notoriously outspoken, table-flipping mom of four — who returned to her home in Towaco, New Jersey, December 23, after a nearly yearlong prison stint for fraud — is playing nice with frenemy and fellow housewife Jacqueline Laurita.RELATED: Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, And Rosie Pierri Attend Christmas Party
A year ago, says the insider, “Andy [Cohen] had asked Teresa if she wanted a friendship with Jacqueline. Teresa said no.” But instead of keeping the bad blood going, Giudice decided to make amends at the beginning of taping last month.
“Teresa reached out to Jacqueline, but Jacqueline didn’t think it was genuine,” the source says. "Then they all taped a scene together, hashed everything out and made up."
The ex-con, 43, is also sharing her best self with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, who Giudice has feuded with on camera over multiple seasons of the hit Bravo show. The former rivals — Gorga is married to Teresa’s brother, Joe — rang in the New Year with their rumored new castmates, couple Robyn Levy and Cristina Flores.
“They were genuinely getting along,” says the source of the in-laws. “So far, it’s legitimately been fine!”
While Bravo has yet to officially confirm a new season of RHONJ, a source tells us that in addition to taping the ladies’ New Year’s Eve celebration, cameras are also expected to be on hand for the opening of Gorga’s Montclair, New Jersey, clothing boutique, Envy, on January 14. Adds the source, “All the housewives are expected to go."

Dr. Paul Nassif wants a former bodyguard to pay for making explosive accusations about child abuse -- a claim he only made when he was about to be fired ... according to Paul.
According to the lawsuit, Kevin Villalobos, screwed up on the job earlier this year, and got wind the doctor planned to 86 his ass for it.

Nassif denies hitting his children at all. He says the ex-bodyguard keeps trying to piss off Adrienne by repeating the accusations.
Dr. Paul's suing for libel and defamation ...and there's side beef too.
He claims Villalobos made dry cleaning runs for him and made off with $4,000 worth of clothing!

The D.C. area’s first Australian restaurant is owned by Ashley Darby, a former Miss District of Columbia and cast member on the upcoming “Real Housewives of Potomac” series.RELATED: Meet The Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby's husband Michael: An Australian Real Estate mogul, 56, and he has a son older than his wife
Darby told FOX 5 that Oz Restaurant and Bar, located in Arlington, will be featured on the Bravo show.
“The show will document the beginning of the restaurant and all of the hiccups we had along the way, and really where we are now,” Darby said.
She said the series, which has finished taping already, was “so much fun.”
“When you have six women in one room together -- who have huge personalities, who are very independent people -- you are bound to have some good stuff happen,” Darby said.
She confirmed to FOX 5’s Steve Chenevey that there will be some drama.
Michael Darby, Ashley’s husband, also owns the new restaurant and dropped by The Loft to show off one of their popular menu items, kangaroo sliders!
“The Real Housewives of Potomac” premieres Jan. 17 on Bravo.
Yolanda Foster has pulled the trigger, filing divorce docs to end her marriage to music producer David Foster.
Yolanda cites the usual -- irreconcilable differences. She wants spousal support. There are no child support or custody issues ... they had no kids together.
As we reported, Yolanda and David had a prenup. He's already set her up in a $5 million swanky West L.A. condo.
The couple married in November, 2011. She says they separated 2 months ago.
It was Yolanda's second marriage and David's fourth.

Lisa Vanderpump says just because she has asked questions about Yolanda Foster's health doesn't mean she doubts her struggles are real.RELATED: 9 Times Lisa Vanderpump Proved She Was The REAL Sex Monster
"I had questions, but I think you see she has questions too," the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said on SiriusXM's Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy Tuesday. "She's having her breast implants taken out, so is it silicone poisoning that is really damaged her immune system? She's had amalgam taken out of her mouth."
Vanderpump, 55, also weighed in on the split between Yolanda and husband David Foster.
"I didn't have an inkling and I'm very sad about that because I loved seeing them together," she told Jenny McCarthy I thought they were a great fit, and I don't know if it was the illness that has taken a toll."
Vanderpump took some heat after the December premiere of RHOBH when she questioned Foster's Lyme disease struggles, saying she doesn't know what's wrong with Yolanda's health.
"I'm not that close to her. I never have been. She kind of turned on me," Vanderpump said, before adding, "But I have to let that go because the most important thing now is that she is not well."
What I felt was very important in the announcement of Potomac and its cast is that it would add even more diversity into Bravo's line-up, and the Real Housewives franchise. All of the six women featured in the upcoming season are either African-american or biracial, and it seems like many of the themes throughout the show will touch the racial barriers they face in their upscale suburban community outside of D.C.
Like other casts, the women are multi-faceted, driven, and big parts of their community, so there is a lot in store. Now, let's see who Katie Rost is and what she will bring to the franchise.
She Is Well EducatedRost attended the private school Holton Arms School in D.C. and went on to graduate from Boston University’s College of Communications with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
She Has A Successful Modeling CareerAfter college, Rost moved to New York and worked with everyone from Chanel and Lanvin to J. Crew and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2009, she was chosen by Vogue to join The Vogue 100, a group of diverse women from around the country who act as arbiters of style.
She Has Worked On Television BeforeWhen she was a teen, Rost used to appear on BET's Teen Summit, which eventually led to other gigs hosting. She had a segment, "Katie Rost's Celebrity Hookup" on The CW syndicated television show, Direct Access with Big Tigger.
She Is A Momma To Three KidsRost has three adorable babies from her first marriage to James Orsini, a doctor. She has a 3-year-old son, James Rocco, and 14-month-old twin daughters, Kathryn and Renee.
She Is A Philanthropist
She runs The Ronald F. Rost Charitable Foundation with her mother, in memory of her father, who passed away in 2000. Their mission is "to open the doors of opportunity to the next generation through recreation, enrichment, and leadership activities in the community."

Bethenny Frankel Slams Erika Jayne's New Music Video as 'Cheap' and 'Cheesy' on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
A little bit of New York is invading Beverly Hills on Tuesday's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.RELATED: Bethenny Frankel: My Divorce Battle Is ‘Like A Drop Of Poison In The Ocean’
Bethenny Frankel stops by for a dinner party with the ladies – and to give Erika Girardi a critique of her latest music video (recorded as her alter ego Erika Jayne).
"I don't love the production value of it. I think it goes too slow in the beginning and it looks cheap," she says in an exclusive clip. "I think it was trying to be a little avant-garde, but it's not quite getting it with that silver cheesy bed."
Girardi takes the critique well, telling the camera, that "everyone is entitled to their opinion."
"I just don't agree with her. I don't think she knows what she's talking about," says Girardi, 44.
The other women also defend their new cast member.
"I like Bethenny, but sometimes she needs to sweeten her delivery a little bit," says Lisa Vanderpump.
Frankel, 45, says part of her issue with the video is she didn't get it right away.
"I'm pretty good at marketing. The way I see things is, I want to know what something is the minute I see it, no matter what it is," says Frankel.

Tamra Judge's granddaughter Ava was diagnosed with a kidney condition when she was born last February, but the RHOC reality star says despite her health condition, the nearly one-year-old is doing great.RELATED: ‘RHOC’ Star Tamra Judge Gets Ripped On Instagram For Terrible Spelling In Company Flyer
"She's happy, she's healthy, and she's funny," Judge tells PEOPLE. "She's just so cute!"
Judge's son Ryan Vieth and fiancée Sarah Rodriguez welcomed Ava on Feb. 9, 2015, but doctors later diagnosed the baby with a multicystic dysplastic kidney.
"When she was born, there was no sign of a left kidney," Rodriguez tells PEOPLE. "Because it was a non-functioning kidney it kind of just shriveled up, so it hasn't disappeared but the tissue is too small to be detected by an ultrasound."
For now Ava has been getting treatment at a children's hospital nephrology unit, where she is being monitored every six months to check the functionality and size of her remaining kidney, but the prognosis looks very promising.
"Her right kidney is growing to compensate for both kidneys so it's a little larger than the other one, but it's compensating, which is really good," says Rodriguez.
"They need to make sure whatever took the left kidney it's not going to do the same thing," she says. "But so far it's amazing. The right kidney is doing what it's supposed to do.”
And Rodriguez couldn't be happier about her daughter's progress. "She's perfect," she says.
If RHOP is anything like the other shows, I am bound to be hooked and become overly invested in these women's lives. I feel like they are all my friends. Yes, they are friends who don't know I exist, but that doesn't mean I care any less. And who doesn't want to have a new friend in her life? As for Huger specifically, she's not an aspiring entertainer (as far as I can tell anyway); she is just a regular wife and mom — well, as regular as someone could be who is married to a CEO in a wealthy Maryland community. Yes, this is nothing new for the Real Housewives franchise, but there is something else that really stood out to me about Huger. Bravo describes her as "the Luann de Lesseps of Potomac" and that is enough for me. I was immediately intrigued.
Here are some more facts to help you get to know Huger before the series premiere on Jan. 17.
She Is Literally A Real HousewifeUnlike many of the women in the franchise, Huger is actually a married woman. Her husband, Raymond, is the CEO of an information technology company, and the two have been married for 19 years.
She Is Dreading An Empty NestHuger is a mom to two kids. Her son, Brandon, is 27 and a graduate of two universities: Georgetown University and Morehouse College. Her daughter, Rayvin, is 17 and a senior in high school. Huger's story line is going to revolve around her difficulty letting go of her children now that her youngest child is about to leave the nest and go to college.
She Grew Up On A FarmHuger did not always reside in the wealthy community of Potomac, Maryland. She is originally from Spring Grove, Virginia where she grew up on a farm.
She Is College EducatedAccording to her Facebook, she attended the University of Virginia.
She Loves To Throw PartiesThe soon-to-be reality star loves to bring people together and throw lavish parties. She goes all out when it comes to the themes, and we all know that big social events are where all of the Real Housewives drama goes down, so I have a feeling that her parties will serve as the backdrops for some pretty great scenes.
She Is Not Into Social MediaI'm sure this will change with time, but Huger is not super into social media. She has a Twitter account and an Instagram, but as of this moment she hasn't passed 15 posts on either page. For someone who's signed up to be on a reality show, I figured she would have more to share, but like I said, I have a feeling this will change once RHOP starts airing.
She Is Charitable
Even though Huger isn't a social media aficionado, one thing is very clear from her few postings: She is a philanthropic person. She has been photographed supporting many charitable causes and I imagine this will be highlighted on RHOP as well.
