Luann de Lesseps Parties with Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley at Her Bridal Shower
She's getting married!

Friends of Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps gathered together on Wednesday night in the Big Apple to celebrate the 51-year-old socialite at her bridal shower!
Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley were just two of de Lesseps' RHONY castmates to attend the intimate affiar. They were joined by other friends of the 5 ft. 10 in.-beauty, including YouTube star Chloe Jane.

All the ladies wore sparkly tiaras – with the Countess' crown saying "Bride to Be." She looked especially ready to walk down the aisle in a low-cut, belted, lacy white dress with silky skirt. 

De Lesseps is engaged to fiancée Tom D'Agostino, Jr., who proposed to her in February with an eight-carat yellow-diamond ring after a few weeks of dating.

Their relationship was the fodder for much drama on this season of Bravo's hit reality show – as D'Agostino, Jr. allegedly had a "friends with benefits" relationship with Morgan and had previously dated Ramona Singer.  

Singer missed the affair – attending an intimate concert with John Legend thrown by iHeartRadio instead.

As for Bethenny Frankel? Well, we'd bet her invite was lost in the mail.

Bravo Producers Put 'Real Housewives of Orange County' Cast on Twitter Lockdown After Too Much Fighting
The cast of Real Housewives of Orange County (Watch Live) needs a timeout! has learned that the cast has gotten so NASTY towards each other in recent weeks that production staff fired off a shocking letter to all of them, commanding their social media silence!

Radar exclusively obtained a copy of that letter, which lays down the law.

It reads, in part, “…the social media viciousness has gone too far and you need to cool it. Specifically we’re asking you to stop attacking each other. The network is upset and so are we in production.”

“The constant, ugly fighting is a bad look for you, and bad for the show,” it reads. “You may not like each other, may not trust each other and often wish you weren’t on the show together – but taking shots at each other on social media isn’t the answer. Save it for the show… for the reunion… and please stop fighting so dirty.”

The letter begged the ladies to stop “negative mentions about the other cast members,” and urged the ladies to focus on their own lives and projects instead.

We’re asking you to stop any negative mentions about the other cast members on social media. Talk about your lives, your kids, your grandchildren, your jobs, products…. Or whatever…. But please stop aggressively hitting each other below the belt.”

So what started it?

The back-and-forth social media war between this season’s cast members – Vicki Gunvalson, 54, Shannon Beador, 52, Tamra Judge, 49, Heather Dubrow, 47, Meghan King-Edmonds, 32, and  – has gotten way out of hand lately, with team Gunvalson and Dodd up against team Beador, Judge and Dubrow.

After being called the C-word recently by Dodd Gunvalson got her sweet revenge on Beador during last night’s episode when she hinted that Bedor’s cheating husband David was happier with the mistress than he was with her!

'Friend of the Housewives' Marie Reyes says She's Not Returning to 'Real Housewives of Dallas'
Thursday afternoon, Real Housewives of Dallas cast member Marie Reyes tweeted a police report from 2008 that says Real Housewife LeeAnne Locken threatened her ex-boyfriend with a knife and hit him in the face. "LeeAnne Locken has a documented history of violence with knives — so I'm staying away from #RHOD Season 2," Reyes said in her tweet

Reyes' revelation puts another nail in the coffin of her long friendship with Locken, which soured as the pair squared off on the TV show. In one episode built around a trip to Austin, Locken threatened to kill Reyes, who she believed was spreading rumors about her. At least that was how Reyes saw it, but when Reyes and the other women on the show confronted Locken about these threats, she waved them off. "Haven't you ever heard someone in the street say, 'I'm going to kill your ass?' It's slang," Locken says. "It doesn't mean I'm going to take a knife and slit her throat." 

Maybe not, but jabbing at a locked door with a knife while someone cowers behind it seems a little less slangy and a lot more scary. That's what Locken's ex-boyfriend Hubert Sebanc said she did to him in the 2008 report he made to Dallas police.

According to the incident report, Sebanc called the police to Locken's home after a night of clubbing. Locken was angry with Sebanc because she thought he was flirting with another woman. When they returned home, she began chasing him, swinging a large kitchen knife at him "in a cutting motion." He locked himself in a bedroom while Locken stabbed the bedroom door.

Sheree Whitfield Returns Fulltime, No Newcomers on Season 9 of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Sheree Whitfield, who left the show after four seasons and returned part-time last year, has officially been given a full-time peach – and full-time salary – for the ninth season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

The show returns Sunday, November 6 on Bravo at 8 p.m.

Whitfield created some great one-liners such as “Who Gonna Check Me Boo?” but struggled to conjure up compelling personal stories or build her brand the way most of the other ladies have. (She by Sheree never quite broke through.) She was taken off the show in 2012 but came back last year in an recurring role. She clearly made enough of a positive impression to stick around this year.

Her “Chateau Sheree” home may or may not be livable at this point. It’s been unfinished for several years.

As previously reported, Kim Fields came season eight and left after just one season. This type of show was clearly not for her.

The other ladies – Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks – remain.

A press release provided some more plotlines:
In season nine of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” after coming to grips with the end of her marriage to Peter, Cynthia is looking forward to embracing this new chapter of her life with a fresh start in a new house. Kandi and Todd are still over the moon with the arrival of baby Ace, but juggling high-profile careers and parenting duties proves to be challenging, especially with Mama Joyce drudging up past issues between Kandi and Phaedra. With her law practice and social justice work taking up more of her time, Phaedra hires a tough new nanny to wrangle her growing rambunctious boys, Ayden and Dylan, as she awaits word of her divorce from Apollo being final. Porsha has rekindled a love connection with an old flame and in an effort to better herself, she begins anger management counseling. On the heels of juggling a tumultuous relationship with her boyfriend Matt, Kenya channels her love struggles by racing to finish “Moore Manor.” Just up the road at “Chateau Shereè,” and holding a peach for the first time since season four, Shereè puts on her “Momager” hat with hopes of her son being The Bailey Agency’s next top model. Coming up this season, there are major twists in relationships among the group from unexpected alliances that form as well as shocking accusations that could end an old friendship beyond repair. For a sneak peek, visit:
NeNe Leakes said she has no plans to return but she said that last year and made a surprise appearance. So you never know.

Alexia Echevarria Opens Up About Estranged Husband Herman's Death: "The Last 24 Hours Have Been a Nightmare"

It's already been a day since Herman Echevarria Sr.'s family learned about the tragic news of his death. Not only was the 61-year-old father a constant companion for his children, but he was also the patriarch of his family and respected businessman. 

Alexia Echevarria, Herman's estranged wife, shares with us how she and her family are coping with the greatest loss they have ever had to face. 

"The last 24 hours have been a nightmare for my family and I. It is life once again showing me that at the drop of a hat, things can change. I can't imagine what my life will be like walking into my office every day and not seeing Herman or having our family dinners with the kids and family. We were in this for fifteen years and although we were currently separated and living in separate homes, our spiritual and emotional connection was stronger than ever," Alexia says exclusively to E! News. "I would like to take this time to thank everyone for the incredible outpour of support that has come my way through messages, calls and social media.  I am sharing this image with you that we took this past Father's day because this is how I will always remember US. "

In the photo shared by the Bravo star, we see the pair hugging and caught in the moment. 

Herman died Monday morning of natural causes, according to police. His body was found in the bedroom of his apartment at the Epic Residences in Miami. Authorities have closed the case.

Sources close to the family revealed to E! that they believe that the former council member suffered a fatal heart attack.

After 12 years of politics in Hialeah, Florida, Echevarria turned to business and became one of the most important and respected entrepreneurs in Miami.  

The couple founded Venue, a Spanish-language magazine, that focuses on the sophisticated lifestyle of today's Latinos. The Real Housewives of Miami co-stars separated in 2015.

Meghan King Edmonds Says Losing Other Baby on RHOC "Felt So Real"
Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County was a weepy one as the cast let the tears flow throughout the episode. Meghan King Edmonds provided one of the most emotional moments of the episode as she broke down in tears when she realized that only one of her babies had survived after she underwent IVF earlier this season (clip above). 

Meghan is now well on her way to becoming a mom to her first child, a baby girl, later this fall. Still, she said that all of those emotions came rushing back to her as she relived that heartbreaking moment. "It’s hard for me to watch this scene back," Meghan tweeted during the episode Monday night. "I’m so grateful Jimmy could be there with me."

She added, "I’m currently 7th months pregnant and have enjoyed every second, but the loss of the other baby felt so real."

Some fans were also pleasantly surprised to see Meghan's usually gruff and tough husband Jim Edmonds being so sweet and compassionate during that scene. "I think he forgot there were cameras around," Meghan joked on Twitter.

Alexia Echevarria’s Husband Herman Echevarria Sr. Found Dead
Real Housewives of Miami star Alexia Echevarria’s estranged husband, Herman Echevarria Sr., was found dead on Monday, September 26, the Miami Police Department confirms to Us Weekly.

According to E! News, who was first to report the news, and TMZ, Herman was found dead inside a room at Miami’s Epic Hotel. His business partner Gonzalo Gonzalez told the Miami Herald that it’s believed Herman died in his sleep from a heart attack. The Miami police department could not confirm the reports to Us, as an investigation is still ongoing.

“The Echevarria family is heartbroken over the sudden passing of our patriarch Herman Echevarria this morning,” Alexia told Us in a statement. “He was a family man, a hardworking businessman, dedicated to helping others and a pillar of his community that was loved by everyone who’s life he touched. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.”

The couple were both featured on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Miami and cofounded Miami’s Venue magazine.

Us exclusively confirmed in May 2015 that Alexia and Herman had separated after 15 years of marriage. As documented on the Bravo reality series, Herman was a father figure to her two sons, Peter and Frankie, from her previous marriage to felon Pedro Luis Rosello. (Rosello was sentenced to 24 years in federal prison after being part of one of the largest cocaine smuggling operations in the 1980s.)

“It’s uncomfortable to have to speak about my ex-husband, the biological father of my children, after we have been legally divorced for over 17 years,” Alexia wrote in a 2013 Bravo blog post. “As you all know, I've been happily married to Herman for the last 13 years. Peter and Frankie have always lived with me and Herman,” she explained of her situation at the time. “[They] have been blessed with having two fathers in their lives.”

Bethenny Frankel Reveals What It'll Take To Convince Her To Attend LuAnn de Lesseps' Wedding
Luann de Lesseps' New Year's Eve wedding is just three months away, but Bethenny Frankel won't be marking her calendar for the celebratory occasion.

During a visit to the PEOPLE offices, the Real Housewives of New York personality revealed that she and de Lesseps are not speaking following the reunion show.

"No, I haven't strangled her and I haven't spoken to her, so she's still alive and I hope she is happily engaged. And no I haven't spoken to her," Frankel, 45, tells PEOPLE. 

Although the pair feuded on season 8 of the Bravo reality series, Frankel cites the Countess' "bad behavior" as a reason for her no longer being upset with de Lesseps.

"I'm not really upset with her because I wasn't really that surprised by her bad behavior," Frankel states. "The truth is not Luann's very good friend. So, I'm not really that surprised. I'm not angry. There have been people that I've been on the show with before that I was very angry at and was just like, 'I can never speak to them again' and I don't feel like that with Luann because I just don't expect that much from her."

On season 8, Frankel dropped a bombshell on de Lesseps when she revealed that the Countess' fiancé, Tom D'Agostino, Jr., allegedly made out with a Playboy model at New York's Regency Hotel the day before the couple's engagement party.

"In the end, really, because I was the messenger and you know people want to kind of get the stain off of them and just throw it onto someone else. I presented something that represents the truth and Luann, like I said, isn't a very good friend of the truth," Frankel tells PEOPLE.

Teresa Giudice Talks Upcoming Drama on 'RHONJ' Vermont Trip
It's the Real Housewives of New Jersey trip we've been hearing about since before the season started. The one that would pit Jacqueline Laurita against both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for good. It's the explosive expedition to Vermont. And it's finally here.

"I guess if you put a bunch of women together on a vacation trip, drama is bound to happen and you're gonna see some explosions," Teresa told E! News in advance of the big getaway making its way to your TV screens.

"I bring friends on the show that have issues with some of the other Housewives of the show," she added. "So you'll see that play out."

Which Housewives, you ask? "There was drama between Jacqueline and someone else, one of my friends that comes on the show," Teresa told us, before offering an advisement. "But watch closely of how it plays out."

When Jacqueline goes toe-to-toe with Tre's friend Robyn almost immediately, it'll cause Melissa to look at her then-friend in a whole new light. And naturally, poor Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker will be stuck in the middle, trying to keep the peace. 
"This plays out in two episodes, so the first part is pretty explosive, but the second part is even more explosive," Teresa teased. "So you definitely have to watch it."

Judge Sets January Date To Hear Motion On Joanna Krupa's Slander Lawsuit Against Brandi Glanville
Reactions to smells, if you believe the latest 100-page motion in the defamation case brought by former reality TV star Joanna Krupa against “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” standout Brandi Glanville, are subjective and statements of opinion.

Cigar smoke, the motion by Glanville to dismiss the 2-year-old lawsuit argues, can be “intoxicating” and “delightful” to some people while odious to others.

Therefore, the motion argues, a judge in Miami should throw out the lengthening case where “Real Housewives of Miami” principal Krupa is asking for big money from Glanville for the latter’s televised claims two years ago that Krupa’s lady parts are stinky.

Actually, the judge is keeping a stiff upper lip and set a January date to hear the motion, one where the absurd — in as many as 156 separate filings and counting — has been pushed to the extreme.

Take Ray Rafool, Krupa’s attorney, for example.

He took time off from playing polo in Ibiza earlier today to discuss the latest by telephone.

“For you and I to say this is a ridiculous case that shouldn't be going through the justice system is easy,” Rafool said. “We’re not the ones who were slandered.

“Everywhere Joanna goes, someone brings it up. She’s trying to save the cougars in California, and wisecracks about female scent spring up.

“People come up to her husband [Miami Beach nightclub owner Romain Zago] and say to him ‘I heard your wife’s … smells bad.’ What do you do?

“In a civilized society, you don’t get into a fistfight over it. You go to court.”

Until Glanville admits she was lying when she alleged that Krupa’s nether regions aren't as neat as she looks, Rafool says, the case will likely continue.

Said Susan Warner, Glanville’s Jacksonville attorney: “This was a nonsensical joke at best, and it could be an opinion — nothing defamatory.

“You need to ask this other side why they’re pursuing this.”

Amber Marchese Finishes Treatment After Second Breast Cancer Battle
Amber Marchese has overcome her second battle with breast cancer.

The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star opened up to PEOPLE about her current health at WE tv's celebration of the return of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Thursday in New York City.

"I'm actually done with treatment," revealed Amber, 39. "Actually, two weeks ago was my last treatment. I'm clean, I'm clear and I'm just ready to get on with life."

Amber survived breast cancer in 2009 before going on to discover a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April 2015. 

Of how the experience changed her outlook on life, the reality star says it's made her full of "love."

"Oh my god – I love people, I love life, I love my family and I appreciate everything," she said. "I mean, I just don't take anything for granted. Nothing's guaranteed."

Ramona Singer Finalizes Divorce from Mario Singer
Let freedom ring for Ramona Singer.

The “Real Housewives of New York” star’s divorce from Mario Singer was finalized on Wednesday, two years after they first split, her reps confirmed to Page Six on Friday.

“We signed off on a divorce agreement last September. Unfortunately, it took the judge over a year to sign off on it due to paperwork glitches,” she told E! News. “I found out yesterday from my attorney, who sent it to me along with a key chain that says, ‘The divorce is final.'”

Ramona, 59, wed Mario in 1992 and they renewed their vows on-air in 2010. The Bravo personality tearfully recalled on “Housewives” this season how she actually discovered on Page Six that her spouse of over 20 years allegedly cheated with a much younger woman.

Though Ramona and Mario called it quits in August 2014, she says she has since forgiven him. “Forgiveness is very important,” she told us last summer. “I forgive [Mario]. Sometimes people just lose their way and you can’t help them find it.”

Melissa Gorga Takes Teresa Giudice's Side In Feud Against Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri
Melissa Gorga is taking a stand against Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri!

Gorga, 37, revealed that that she has no intention of being a part of their feud with Teresa Giudice, as she wants to keep the family at peace after their explosive sit-down!

“You have seen throughout the past five seasons, there have been A LOT of ups and downs between all of our families and our friendships,” she began her blog. “No one’s hands are 100% clean, including my own, but what I have learned is that actions speak louder than words when it comes to finding peace.”

“Our issue with Kathy and Richie is that they are the ones that pulled away from Joe [Gorga] and I, waaay before Teresa went away, and I’m still not even sure why,” she explained. “Now, they all of sudden are ready to come back around and are annoyed that we aren’t dropping everything to make time for them. Even though we hadn’t heard from them in a long time, we still supported them, checked in to make sure Victoria was okay and came to see their new beautiful home.”

“The second we walked into their house, we got thrown into a heated conversation about Teresa,” she said of the most recent episode of RHONJ. “I was pretty clear that I didn’t want to be put in the middle, and I’m glad Joe called Richie out on his unnecessary dig. Teresa, Joe and I agreed that we would put the past in the past, that there would be no more secrets, and that we would shut down any negative conversations about each other when that person was not there to defend themselves. And that is exactly what we did!”

“I am proud of how Joe handled himself throughout this entire episode,” she continued. “He loves his family and does want peace, but he’s right… we all need to be genuine to move forward, and if you’re not ready to do that, then be honest and tell them. When people said we weren’t supporting Kathy and Rosie, I think that’s unfair. If it wasn’t for Joe, Teresa would have never even sat down with her cousins.”

“I can’t speak for Teresa, but I know from my own experience with her that she goes through a process and she’s gotta get over one thing before she can approach the next,” she concluded. ” She said she doesn’t feel that Kathy and Rosie wanting to reconcile is genuine, and I can see both sides. I do believe they want to be back in the family and want to be with us, but I get that Teresa feels it’s not real since they didn’t reach out while she was away. I was not on the visitor list or approved email list, but I still wrote to Teresa to tell her how I felt and send pictures of her girls. I made the effort to let her know that I wanted her to be in my life and that I wanted us to be good.”

Shannon Beador's Mother-in-Law Causes an Angry, Tearful RHOC Scene
Shannon Beador and her husband David have worked to rebuild their marriage since his infidelity threatened to tear it apart. And on this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the couple – who married in 2000 – appear to be in the best place ever.

Now two years after David's affair was exposed, the Beadors have worked through their problems in therapy and say they've come out stronger for it. They even renewed their vows in front of their loved ones – and shared an intimate second honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas with viewers.

But on Monday's episode, it appears one person close to Shannon and David hasn't exactly been rooting for the pair to stay together.

David's mother, Donna, attended a concert the Beadors' daughters were having – and made it known to Housewives Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd that she thought her son was justified in cheating on his wife. 

"He's a wonderful guy," Donna told them, of her son. "He made one mistake. And she pushed him. But I'm sure he regrets it now."

The words were a shock to Judge and Dodd, who had just met Donna for the first time minutes earlier.

They were both aware that there was previous tension between Shannon and her mother-in-law because Shannon had spoken of their strained relationship when Donna and her daughter Vicki first arrived at the event.

"David's mom and sister are here, just so you know," Shannon told her friends. "I mean, I haven't seen them since Christmas. I didn't know they were coming. They've never liked me."

She detailed more to viewers. "David's mother doesn't like me," she said. "David gave his mother a lot of attention when he wasn't married and I was taking him away from her."

Siggy Flicker Says Kathy Wakile & Sister Rosie Had Bad Timing For Confronting Teresa Giudice

From Siggy's Bravo blog:
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…TIMING IS EVERYTHING! This applies to a lot of the relationship turmoil that’s happening during this season of RHONJ. I’m so happy to offer my relationship expertise to anyone who’s willing to listen, but unfortunately, I’m not a magician! Ideally, I’d love to see everyone back together as one big happy family but I would need both parties to agree to that. Remember, it takes two to tango! 

It’s heartbreaking to see relationships not getting back to where and what they used to be, but it’s important to keep in mind that EVERYONE has a lot going on in their own lives that’s more important to them at the moment; Teresa Giudice is trying to get in as much family time as possible in the short time between her arrival home and Joe’s departure. (Can you imagine the stress?) One person can handle only so much emotionally. The timing just isn’t right to work things out.

There is a big difference between making up with a brother and making up with a cousin. I’m sure Teresa and Joe’s parents had a lot to do with bringing them back together -– they undoubtedly encouraged them to get along –- and I’m sure the children know how much it meant to their parents that they works things out. Richie’s comment certainly didn’t help the situation at all, but knowing Richie, he didn’t intend to cause any harm. Sometimes we say things in the heat of the moment that we don’t mean.

Some relationships are easy to fix, some take a little time, some may be past the point of repairing. It all comes down to: is it worth it to you at the moment to put in the effort? Down the road, when and if the timing is just right, I hope that this entire group can get along again. Although it doesn’t look like it’s going to be anytime soon, I’m not counting any of these relationships out yet … and neither should you.

Lisa Vanderpump Shuts Down the Idea of a Brandi Glanville 'Real Housewives' Return: ‘Absolutely Not!’
Lisa Vanderpump is ready to bring the drama back to Bravo.

ET’s Leanne Aguilera caught up with the reality star on the red carpet at Sunday night’s Emmys, where she dished all about the new seasons of Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Both shows are set to return before the end of the year. 

“We're back really soon,” Lisa promises. “And it's a bit of a tumultuous ride, shall we say? It's [all] coming back.” 

The restaurateur promises “a bumpy road” leading to Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s wedding, which was followed by co-star Stassi Schroeder crashing their honeymoon.

“Why would they need her to sleep on their couch?” Lisa asks. “I have no idea! But that group, I mean, they love each other. A little dysfunctional, but they do love each other. I wouldn't invite Stassi on my honeymoon. That's for sure.” 

Lisa did, however, invite a new friend to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Her pal, fashion designer Dorit Kemsley, has joined the cast of season seven. 

“So, that always changes the dynamic,” Lisa teases. “She's actually a friend of mine, so I like her … Normally, they beat me up, so this one worked!” 

Lisa, of course, is referencing former co-star Brandi Glanville, who slapped her in a season five episode. While Brandi made guest appearances in season six, Lisa says don’t hold your breath for any more cameos. 

“Oh, no!” She exclaims. “Absolutely not. No, I don't think Brandi's gonna be back. Well, definitely not on our show.” 

When asked if Brandi is now on her “blacklist,” Lisa simply responded with, “She’s not on my list, period. How about that?”

A Racial Slur Haunts 'Real Housewives of Auckland'
Lost count of the amount of Real Housewives franchises around the world? So have we.

Yet the Auckland-based version of the franchise in New Zealand is in a tonne of hot water, due to one of its stars being filmed using an awful racial slur, which producers have chosen to include in Tuesday night's episode — albeit bleeped out.

One of the show's stars, Julia Sloane was recorded off-camera using the n-word in reference to another housewife, Michelle Blanchard in episode six of the series. Blanchard is British and of Caribbean descent.

The comment was made during a luxury yacht trip with the housewives, when another housewife Gilda Kirkpatrick asked Blanchard for some help, prompting Sloane to make the comment "she's not your boat n***er," according to the New Zealand Herald.

Sloane has since issued a statement to the New Zealand Herald, in which she said she apologised for the remark.

"While in Port Douglas filming for Real Housewives of Auckland I made an off-camera and off-the cuff inappropriate comment which caused hurt to Michelle," she said. "I wasn't thinking. I made a mistake and I have apologised to Michelle for my remark.

"There is no excuse for using offensive words under any circumstances and I have learned from this foolish mistake. I have put this distressing experience behind me and am moving on."

Sloane's husband, investment banker Michael Lorimer, told the newspaper it was a "tongue-in- cheek boating term" that he and his wife would use occasionally while sailing, and that alcohol might be a factor in why the remark was made. 

They're both trying to get lawyers to amend the episode, saying it's "grossly unfair" on the part of the producers. 

Blanchard told The Spinoff that she's still unhappy about Sloane not owning up to the incident, although explained that she doesn't have a problem with Sloane as they have a "professional working relationship."

Shannon Beador Has a New Neighbor in Enemy Kelly Dodd
Well, this is going to make for some awkward block parties.

Now that David and Shannon Beador have sold their palatial digs (and all the furnishings) in one of the quickest sales we've seen on The Real Housewives of Orange County, they're on the move. And as luck would have it, they're moving into the same exclusive O.C. neighborhood as Shannon's newest enemy: Kelly Dodd.

And if their interaction in this sneak peek of tonight's new episode, exclusive to E! News, is any indication, things are going to awfully uncomfortable in Corona del Mar.

As Shannon prepares to pack up her entire house in one week on her own (Why no movers, you ask?
"I don't want their germs."), she invites Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow over for a packing party, with Kelly tagging along. "One would hope that Kelly would have the decency not to attack me in my own home," Shannon says. "But am I a bit nervous there might be another explosion? Yep."

Revealing herself to be nothing more than a gracious guest, arriving with a bottle of champagne and walking on eggshells, Kelly asks what area Shannon's moving into.

"In Corona del Mar," Shannon reveals.

"So you're going to be neighbors with Kelly," Tamra points out, while Shannon and Kelly try to avoid eye contact at all costs once the connection is made. 

Kelly's interview says it best: "Oh s--t."

Days after The Real Housewives of New York City Season 8 reunion, Jules Wainstein confirms to The Daily Dish that she will not return after one season on the show. "Overall, it was a great experience. I learned so much about myself. I learned so much about the ladies. They're all successful in different ways. I learned different things from each and every one of them," she said. "The best part of it, especially now, [with] what's going on now, the show really made me feel capable — like I felt like if I didn't have the show and this was going on I'd kind of feel lost. I feel very strong and like I got a little chutzpah. I feel empowered; it's a show about women. Listen, I'm going through the worst time in my life, but on the other hand, life isn't over and even though I'm 35, it could be the beginning."

While you never know if Dorinda Medley's BFF might pop up again in the future, she's now focused on her business, Modern Alkeme, as well as her family. "Now with everything going on in my personal life, I want to focus on my family, my children, and make sure they are happy and healthy. My children are young and with everything going on, the last thing I want is my divorce to be public and I have to protect them," she said, adding, "I'm not disappearing. You're gonna see me around [promoting Modern Alkeme]."

The mother of two joined RHONY for Season 8. During her tenure on the show, she was candid about her past struggles with an eating disorder, even in the face of criticism from some of the other women. Back in June, she announced her divorce from her husband of eight years, Michael Wainstein. "We respect Jules' privacy in dealing with this personal matter and know she’ll get through this difficult time with the support of her friends and loved ones," a rep from Bravo said.

Gamble Breaux Slams Lisa Oldfield after Sydney Star Disses RHOM Again
The Real Housewives of Sydney hasn't even finished filming yet, but that hasn't stopped Lisa Oldfield from making endless headlines thanks to her acid tongue and repeated attacks on the Melbourne Housewives.

And after making yet another catty crack about the Melbourne cast and boasting once again that the Sydney spin-off will best the wildly-popular original, fan favourite Gamble Breaux has hit back at the brunette with her signature wit.

When contacted for comment by Daily Mail Australia, Gamble laughed: 'I hear Real Housewives of Sydney is already getting rave reviews... from its cast!'
The 45-year-old former art consultant added: 'I suggest Lisa save her petty bulls**t for the unfortunate women she will be spending the next four months with.'
Gamble's response comes after politician's wife Lisa bragged to the Daily Telegraph that the Sydney show will be better than Melbourne because: 'We haven't got any women who have married their money in it.'
Lisa then added that she works full-time in the technology sector.
It's the latest blow in the so-called rivalry between the Sydney and Melbourne casts, which has been playing out in the media over the past few months -- mostly thanks to Oldfield's unprovoked attacks.
Back in July, she took a swipe at RHOM, saying: 'I wouldn't compare myself to any of those girls.
The benchmark is so low.'
'The best thing that came out of Melbourne is probably Underbelly so really we are starting very low,'  she added.

Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump Caught Filming New Season of 'RHOBH'
The ladies of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills are on the move.

Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump were spotted looking ultra glamorous at LAX Airport in Los Angeles on Friday before their flight out of town. 

The reality star veterans linked up with new cast member Dorit Kemsley, who joins the women for the upcoming seventh season of the hit show as filming begins. 

Kyle made a chic jet-setter clad in all white nixing the old-fashioned Labor Day rule.

The 47-year-old mother-of-four donned skinny jeans and a white tank top underneath a stylish sheer cut-out trench coat which was belted at the waist.

The brunette beauty teamed the summery look with nude open toe sandals which showed off her fresh red pedicure. 

She left her long locks down with the front strands pulled back and added a pretty gloss to her lips leaving her trendy sunnies on inside the airport.

Paris and Nicky Hilton's aunt was decked out in jewelry and toted a large Louis Vuitton purse over her shoulder. 

Kyle took to Instagram before take off captioning the Snapchat filtered shot with: 'Love an adventure ...and we're off!' 

Kyle appeared in high spirits before her flight as she flashed a smile and a peace sign.

Catching Up With the 'Real Housewives of Melbourne'

The Real Housewives of Melbourne is just the gift that keeps on giving. The international import (from Australia, naturally), is now in its third season on Bravo and man, it's just so absurd. It's almost unreal. And that is said with all due compliments.

Haven't been watching the (mis)adventures of your queens from Down Under—Gina Liano, Chyka Keebaugh, Gamble Breaux, Jackie Gillies, Janet Roach, Lydia Schiavello, Pettifleur Berenger and Susie McClean—it's OK. There's still time to rectify that. This is what you've been missing. Please keep in mind these stories are not made up. Or are they?

No, they're not made up. They are 100 percent scenes that happened in the show.

The Feet Bronzing
Gina bronzed her feet before going into a wildlife area in Dubai where she and some other women interacted with a sea lion. Why did she bronze her feet? Because the women were told they weren't allowed to wear shoes in. Gina is a woman who is ALWAYS in heels. She even wears heels on the beach—see Gamble's wedding for further proof. So yes, she put makeup on her feet before going to greet a sea lion.

While at Gamble's wedding venue, Gina went up to her room to watch herself on the premiere of Celebrity Apprentice and have birthday cake with her family. The other ladies stirred the pot, saying Gina hosted a party and was pulling guests away from Gamble's gathering. Gamble played right into their hands. But, soapbox time, wouldn't you want to watch yourself in your new show? Of course. It wasn't the actual wedding day or night. She attended Gamble's event. Let Gina live.

The Driver
One of Lydia's main storylines this year involved her housekeeper, Johanna, driving her around. Poor Johanna. Did she get an appearance fee this year? Hopefully a "friend of the Housewives" rate? Lydia trotted her out everywhere and the scenes where Lydia made Johanna drive her around were just…uncomfortable.

The Dog Portrait
Speaking of Lydia and absurd things, she also had a giant portrait painted of her beloved dog, the Greyhound Figaro. Pettifleur, the woman with two huge paintings of herself adorning her walls, thought this was absurd. Take that statement in. And that brings us to Pettifleur…

The Beach Tears
Pettifleur, Pettifleur, Pettifleur. Just…what is there to say? This is something that actually happened: All of the women just arrived in Dubai and were chilling poolside. Lydia and Pettifleur joined them after many were already settled in. The women greeted them and complimented Lydia on her dress.

In a confessional, Pettifleur pointed out that she had also arrived in a shear skirt showing half of her butt. "Give me some attention here," she said in her confessional. While with the other women, she leaned in and whispered this to Lydia: "Nothing against you, but just then no one made eye contact with me. It was all like hello hello hello to you. It was like I didn't even exit. F—king hurts. It really does. I'm pretty upset." She then proceeded to cry. Or attempt to cry so the ladies noticed her. "The whole attention was just like, ‘Hi…,'" she said. The other ladies apologized, but then in their confessionals were pretty much like, "Come on. This is absurd." Yes, Pettifleur cried because nobody was giving her attention. What a world… (You can view the madness for yourself here.)

Pettifleur also got upset over the following: Self-proclaimed psychic Jackie wouldn't "read" her to find where her son's missing birth certificate was, Jackie told her to butt out of her conversation with Lydia that was about their friendship and had nothing to do with Pettifleur, and her son not inviting her out on his date with his girlfriend after she bought him an extravagantly priced piano.

Bethenny Frankel Explains Why She Didn't Participate in the Group Hug at the 'RHONY' Reunion
After the smoke cleared on the final part of the Real Housewives of New York City season 8 reunion Wednesday, all of the Housewives participated in a group hug to put the drama behind them.

Well, all but Bethenny Frankel.

Yup, as Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill and Jules Wainstein embraced one another – and Andy Cohen – the Skinnygirl mogul remained seated. 

It wasn't clever editing either. Frankel, 45, confessed all to PEOPLE Now on Friday.

"I did not hug," she told hosts Andrea Boehlke and Jeremy Parsons. "I did have strep, and I had 102-degree fever so it wasn't an option."

Frankel said she told Cohen and the Housewives why she wasn't getting up on the show – though that audio didn't make the episode's final cut.

"I remember – and you couldn't hear me saying it – I did say, 'Oh God, thank God I have strep.' So I was happy to not have hugged," Frankel admitted.

It was a brutal three-part reunion for Frankel. She had explosive fights with de Lesseps, Medley and Wainstein – and even had to prove to de Lesseps that she hadn't begun dating her boyfriend Dennis Sheilds when he was still happily married and living with his family.

The battles were so tough on Frankel, she said that she wouldn't have jumped up for a hug even if she didn't have strep.

"I don't double kiss. I don't usually group hug. But I definitely don't fake group hug," she said. "I'm not angry, it's just – I'm not fake." 
Great reunion (except for Sonja getting all bent out of shape all this time later over Dorinda understandably not inviting her to that event mid-season and Carole not admitting that she does act like a 'mean girl' when it's just her and Bethenny ) and a great season. I'm 50/50 on Luann actually going through with her wedding and hope that if they do replace Jules, they bring on somebody with

Sisters Caroline and Dina Manzo Aren't Speaking Again
It looks like there's still tension between the Manzo sisters. After Caroline Manzo shared with The Daily Dish that she and her sister Dina Manzo "don't have a relationship anymore," the Manzo'd with Children matriarch reiterated during Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live that their relationship is "over." "What are you gonna do? You can't get blood out of a rock," she told Andy Cohen after he asked how things were between the siblings today (clip above). 

Caroline later said during the WWHL After Show that the last time she and Dina had reconciled, they had been on good terms for about 10 months, but added that they'd "never had words" during that time (clip below).

This all started after the WWHL host mentioned that Dina had sent some love to Caroline's fellow guest Siggy Flicker via Twitter writing, ".@siggyflicker gives great advice! You go girl" during the episode. Caroline's comments on WWHL, however, inspired Dina to send some not-so-positive tweets her sister's way following the episode. "I'm sick w the flu for 7 days & not in the mood for this sh**," Dina tweeted, which seemed to be in response to Caroline's comments. "I said one day I will snap and I might be about to."

Dina went on to imply that Caroline is the one responsible for putting a strain on their relationship. "I was told NEVER to reach out/speak to her or her family again," she tweeted. "Disinvited to holidays? But I'm the rock she's trying to get blood out of?"

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum then said that there was "no reason" for Caroline to bring up this topic publicly. "I was asked that same question on my press tour for my skincare & protected 'family' by saying all is good," she said.

Dina said her tweet to Siggy was only meant as a compliment for "giving great relationship advice" to The Real Housewives of New York City cast on WWHL. "Andy or a caller would have asked the question anyway" about Dina and Caroline's relationship status, according to Dina.

Ultimately, Dina said that she believes this drama is hurting their family. "I've kept my mouth shut for yrs to protect my parents & husband at the time," she tweeted. "I'm done. My parents can't be hurt anymore than they are now."

Caroline has not yet publicly addressed Dina's comments, but she did respond to RHONJ alum Danielle Staub's tweet in which she wrote, "Why the double standard @carolinemanzo you didn't allow anyone to be friends with me but now?" after Caroline mentioned her on WWHL. But Caroline doesn't really seem to have a beef with her former castmate. "Because Danielle Staub, thanks for watching, No.1, and No.2, you and I did not have any kind of relationship, so I don't want to be around the people that are around you, so maybe it's my end," she said.

Caroline Manzo's Daughter Lauren Is Pregnant
The Real Housewives of New Jersey family continues to expand.

Shortly after welcoming Jacqueline Laurita's daughter Ashlee Holmes' baby into the world, we learn that the new mom's cousin Lauren Manzo is pregnant! Caroline Manzo's daughter and hubby Vito Scalia are expecting their first child together, according to People, who first reported the story.

"We are so excited to be expecting our first child, due in early 2017. What a crazy year it has been for us. Life is full of wonderful surprises!," the couple said in a joint statement to the mag. "We had been trying to get pregnant for a while, and as soon as we stopped placing so much pressure on ourselves, it actually happened."

Lauren hinted at possible fertility struggles in the trailer for the new season of the family's spinoff show Manzo'd With Children. "I get nervous that we haven't gotten pregnant yet," she tells Vito.

Rumors that Manzo got pregnant back in April began to surface, but her brother Chris didn't know of any bun in the oven at the time. I know Lauren is superstitious. So if there is something, if there was any kind of news, it hasn't been broken to me yet," Chris told The Daily Dish

"That's usually the next step after marriage, but there hasn't been anything that they're at least telling me. I know that my sister is extremely superstitious, so if there's any kind of superstition of when you can tell someone or anything like that, maybe it's in that phase right now," he added. "I know that as long as I've been alive Lauren's wanted to be a young mother. So, that's in the back of everyone's mind as well."

Tiffany Hendra Reportedly Parts Ways with 'The Real Housewives of Dallas' as Series Gets Renewed
Tiffany Hendra has reportedly parted ways with The Real Housewives of Dallas after just one season on the show.

According to a new report, Hendra walked away from the Bravo reality series after drama broke out behind the scenes between a number of her co-stars.

“Tiffany decided to walk away from the show,” a source told Real Mr. Housewife on Tuesday. “She wasn’t fired. The show was very consuming of her time and she has other projects she is working on... In addition, Tiffany did not want to be a part of the nastiness going on with the cast right now behind the scenes, which she is sure is going to be a topic that will consume the second season.”

While Hendra didn't confirm what it was that had happened between her former co-stars, fans will surely get to see for themselves once the series returns to Bravo.

“Tiffany’s focusing on her brand, and that’s truly where her passion lies,” the source added.

As for who will be replacing Hendra on the series, a second Real Mr. Housewife report suggested there would be two new cast members brought in to join the returning members of the show, who include Brandi Redmond, Cary Deuber, LeeAnne Locken and Stephanie Hollman. One of those women, the outlet revealed, was Kameron Westcott and the other cast member remains unknown.

Luann de Lesseps: Bethenny Frankel Spreading Filthy Sex Lies
Team Bethenny really puts the “dirty” into a dirty tricks campaign, according to a source.
Insiders claim that Bethenny Frankel’s supporters are spreading (very) filthy lies about “Real Housewives” rival Luann de Lesseps.

An anonymous tipster tried to fool Page Six into believing de Lesseps and fiancé Thomas D’Agostino Jr. slipped into a bathroom stall in NYC’s Regency Hotel, where the sketchy “source” claimed that de Lesseps performed an unspeakable sex act on him for 45 minutes, while “audible moans” and “whispering in French” could be heard.

Sources close to de Lesseps claim that Frankel’s allies are behind the tasteless tale.

Frankel’s feud with de Lesseps exploded again on the Bravo show after Frankel revealed that D’Agostino kissed another woman, and de Lesseps returned fire by claiming that Frankel hooked up with her now-boyfriend, Dennis Shields, before he was separated from his wife, which Frankel denies.

De Lesseps told us she was away at a funeral in Philadelphia when the fantasy tryst was supposed to have taken place, adding: “Obviously a desperate attempt by the Housewives camp to ruin my reputation and my upcoming marriage. Not going to happen! It’s really sad how desperate these women can be. I think the show should be renamed ‘The Desperate Housewives.’”

A rep for Frankel didn’t comment.

Kim Zolciak Says She's NOT Returning To 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Those rumors you may have heard about Kim Zolciak-Biermann's return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the show's upcoming ninth season? They're just that—rumors.

The Don't Be Tardy star is hoping to quash any chatter about the possibility that you might see a peach in her hand once again, telling E! News that she has no idea where her old co-star NeNe Leakes is getting her information from.

"NeNe texted me last week and asked me, and I responded 'No.' And then two hours later, she's telling everybody I'm going to be on," Kim told us at the premiere of Oxygen's new reality series Strut in NYC.

"When you hear it from my mouth and I tell you 'No,' the answer's no," she reiterated, explaining that no one from the network has even approached her about returning to her old stomping grounds. "I've not even been asked to be on this season, so I don't now, it's weird."

NeNe got the rumor mill started last week during an appearance on People Now. When asked about her own potential return to the series (she only made occasional appearances in season eight), NeNe said, "I heard once they couldn't work their deal out with me, they went to Kim Zolciak. I'm just telling you the truth!"
