Kelly Dodd's Husband Michael Disses Andy Cohen's 'Watch What Happens Live' Show
He's one of Bravo's head honchos and known as the Real Housewives whisperer.

So Andy Cohen was understandably ruffled after discovering that the husband of a star in one of his shows had slammed him on Twitter.

The 48-year-old responded to being 'trashed' by Kelly Dodd's other half Michael when a caller asked him about it during his Radio Andy SiriusXM show on Monday.

'Oh my God,' Andy said as he read the tweets around. 'It's that moment where I find out I'm being trashed on Twitter by a Real Housewife's husband.

'Oh my God, thanks for telling me about this. I mean, Michael Dodd? Your wife is on my crappy show.'

Andy then learned that Michael had been referring to his late night talk show Watch What Happens Live.
'I am very proud of my little talk show, Michael Dodd,' he said scathingly. 

While Andy was clearly annoyed by the remarks, he also managed to laugh at Michael's unkind words.

Michael, whose wife Kelly is on The Real Housewives Of Orange County, had slammed Andy and his latest memoir Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries.
'AC needs to stop writing crappy books & fix his crap show,' he wrote on Twitter earlier this month, adding that the talk show host 'can't recognize talent'.

Michael then clarified that he wasn't referring to his wife's show, writing: 'I was talking of WWHL. amateur hour!'

At the beginning of the month, he tweeted after Kelly appeared on the show: 'Kelly doesn't care whether AC likes her or not. She kisses nobody's a**.'

Lisa Vanderpump Talks Almost Not Returning to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Lisa Vanderpump almost quit her full-time role on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ahead of the series' 7th season. Although the restauranteur has been featured on the Bravo TV reality series since its start in 2010, she recently admitted to feeling beat up after the show's 6th season.

In an interview for the December issue of Foxtel magazine, Vanderpump said she almost didn't sign on for season 7 due to the mean-spirited behavior of a couple of her co-stars, who she failed to name. In a statement to the magazine, Vanderpump said she wasn't sure if she wanted to come back to the show for its 7th season and had several discussions with production before she returned.
"A couple of the other women just didn't stop," Vanderpump told the magazine, adding that her co-stars were "relentless." Continuing on, Lisa Vanderpump said season six simply wasn't a good season and she didn't want to return to the place where she was with the other ladies.

Following her "Real Housewives" success, Vanderpump went on to appear in her own spinoff series, "Vanderpump Rules," which was based out of her West Hollywood, California restaurant, SUR Restaurant. She also appeared during the 2013 season of "Dancing With The Stars."

In addition to the returning housewives, including Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson, Vanderpump will be seen alongside new housewife Dorit Kemsley and friend Eden Sassoon in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" season 7. While it is not yet known which housewives will be seen on the side of Vanderpump, she is said to have a relationship with Kemsley, which is likely a good sign. After all, she surely wouldn't want to be beaten down for the second season in a row.

Shereé Whitfield and Kandi Burruss Stand Up to the Men in Their Lives
Kandi Burruss and Shereé Whitfield suffer no fools on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. So when their respective baby daddies tried to step to them on Sunday’s all new episode, the Atlanta Housewives wasted no time putting them in their place.

For Burruss, 40, that meant reminding ex Russell “Block” Spencer that his own actions had caused their daughter, Riley Burruss, to push away from him.

The two had a tense phone conversation — which began when Spencer called Kandi after years of not speaking, telling her he was trying to mend fences.

“I’m tryin’ make up with you, see what I’m saying, so I can see Riley,” he said. “I just need to sit down with you too. Like, I just don’t want no bad blood going on so we can co-parent the right way. How can we start over?”

Kandi wasn’t incredibly open to Spencer’s sudden suggestion of wanting to be involved in Riley’s life — especially after his history of not showing up for Riley when he said he would. “How do you co-parent a kid that’s almost 14 years old? That you’ve never co-parented? No. It doesn’t work like that,” she told viewers in a confessional.

She told Spencer to direct his desire for a relationship with Riley to Riley herself. “At this point, Riley is old enough to say whether or not she really wants to have a relationship with her dad,” she explained earlier in the episode. “Right now, she ain’t feeling it. So I ain’t going to push and I’m not going to diss the relationship.”

But Spencer told Burruss his attempts to contact Riley had gone unanswered. “I’ve been calling y’all — y’all ain’t been calling me back,” he said. “I’m not about to chase y’all to communicate with me. I’m not chasing nobody, you understand what I’m saying?”


Whitfield had similar financial struggles with her ex, Bob Whitfield. The two officially divorced in 2007 after 7 years of marriage and 14 years together. But despite being court-ordered to maintain Shereé’s mortgage, household expenses and child support — Bob did not.

They’re in a good place now, co-parenting after 9 years of battling and legal squabbles. But Shereé said Bob has never said he’s sorry for the “bad place” he took her to during their split.

Brandi Glanville Posts Insensitive Nativity Scene Photo To Social Media
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville is under fire for her scandalous take on the holiday season.

The 44-year-old reality TV star thought it would be funny to pose above Jesus in a San Diego nativity scene, where she posed as if she was giving birth to the son of God.

"Never forget the reason for the season," she wrote beneath the Facebook photo posted on Friday.

Glanville instantly offended hundreds of commenters — both religious and not — for her post.

"You managed to offend practically everyone with this post. Are you stupid or something?" one user wrote.

Another Facebook commenter added, "You look like a nice person, and that's why I like your page.

But this is so offensive and out of control, really make me rethink if you are crazy, or only looking for attention. Grow up!!!!!!"

After the "Drinking and Dating" author started to come under fire, she took to Twitter to respond to the backlash.

People need to chill the f--k out and take a joke," she wrote.

Cynthia Bailey Confirms Kim Zolciak Return To 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Could Season 9 of Real Housewives of Atlanta finally mark the return of Kim Zolciak-Biermann?

Kim left RHOA during Season 5, and rumors of her return have run rampant for years. But according to a new report from Celeb Dirty Laundry, Zolciak is slated to return to the show during Season 9.

Whether Kim will return to the show for good or for a one-time appearance is unclear. In an interview with People, cast member Cynthia Bailey confirmed that Zolciak-Biermann will make an appearance during the housewarming party of her long-time friend, Shereé Whitfield.

Of a full-time return for Kim, Bailey said, “I don’t know what is going to happen in the future,” but Cynthia did tell People that she would welcome Kim back to the show with open arms.
“All the original cast from the Housewives, I always take my hat out to them because they started the whole thing. Without them, we wouldn’t be here. So hey — if it’s gonna make the show better and you want to jump on the team and help keep this show no. 1, then by all means, come.”
The report from Celeb Dirty Laundry made it sound as if Kim Zolciak-Biermann may return to the show for good, despite the fact that she and her family already have their own reality show called Tardy for the Party.

Meghan Edmonds Shares First Photo of Baby Girl Aspen and Her Birth Story
It was a very happy Thanksgiving for Meghan King Edmonds and husband Jim Edmonds.

After more than a full day of natural labor, the 32-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star gave birth Thursday to daughter Aspen King Edmonds. Meghan announced the news Friday and posted the first public photo of their little girl on Instagram Saturday.

"Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz," Meghan wrote.
Meghan called her husband "incredible" and said he never left her side while she was in labor.

"I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula," she wrote. "Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn't do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours."
Meghan said Aspen is "a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up!"

"I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too)," she said.

What Triggered Lisa Rinna's Twitter Rant Against United Airlines?
It's not unusual for The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsLisa Rinna to take to social media when she has something to say. But this time, her words were stern and serious after somebody apparently provoked a protective mama's rage. 
She tweeted at United Airlines to say, "You were very rude @united to my kid and I am not happy about it. Kindness at all times. We as parents are nervous when our kids travel!" 
The airline responded promptly, requesting a DM with more info. 
Hopefully the parties can resolve the issue swiftly behind the scenes. But Lisa clarified why she was quick to react in this case — and it's something any mom can relate to. "I can handle it," she wrote. "But don't f*** with my kids or my family!" 
Naturally, Lisa's not the first celebrity to air travel-related grievances on social media. Karlie Kloss recently took to both Snapchat and to Twitter to rage against Philippines Airlines for some unspecified customer service offense. And Bethenny Frankel took a more mild approach during some hotel and flight issues on her recent Mykonos trip.

Jill Zarin Confirms Husband Bobby's Thyroid Cancer Is Back
It will be a bittersweet Thanksgiving for Jill and Bobby Zarin this year. As the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star revealed Monday, her husband’s thyroid cancer has returned. 
“He’s getting the best care,” a tearful Zarin told E! News at the Angel Ball in New York. “We have a great team … He had thyroid cancer that spread to the lungs but it’s all going to be good.” 
Bobby, 70, was first diagnosed in June 2009. While he had his thyroid removed and underwent radioactive iodine treatment, doctors found the cancer had spread to his lungs during a checkup at the Princeton Longevity Center in 2015. 
Jill, 52, added she’ll continue to stand by her spouse’s side through this trying time.“You have to live to live because we want to be here to raise money for cancer research,” the reality star shared. “We want to live our lives to the fullest … We don’t want to miss anything while Bobby’s healthy and strong and we’re just going to fight it.” 
Though Bobby’s cancer has spread to his brain, the Zarin Fabrics founder is expected to undergo gamma radiation treatment in Houston next week.

Bethenny Frankel's Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy Says He Needs a Relationship with Her Boyfriend
Bethenny Frankel's ex-husband is bristling over threats by her current boyfriend to sue him for trashing her in emails, saying he's forced to interact with the BF because the guy's constantly around his daughter.

Jason Hoppy fired off a letter to the lawyer for Dennis Shields, who threatened to sue Hoppy claiming he was sending a flurry of disgusting, harassing emails to Bethenny and cc'ing him.

Hoppy, who Shields claimed sent emails calling Bethenny ugly, old and irrelevant, never specifically disputed the content of what he sent, but he did say, "As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother."

Hoppy goes on to say as long as Shields is in his daughter's life, "I have no choice but to have some type of relationship with him."

Short story ... Shields threatened to sue Hoppy if he didn't stop the emails, so it seems like they're gonna have a date in court.

Report Says Danielle Staub Is Returning to 'RHONJ'...But Only As a 'Friend of the Housewives'
Make new friends, but keep the old — one is silver, and the other… is a prostitution whore! 

Real Housewives of New Jersey infamously waited an entire year to film Season 7 in order to keep Teresa Giudice in the cast, but the results were still a little more boring than we would have liked. 

Luckily for fans of all things Bravo, however, Season 8 already sounds twice as entertaining… because we're hearing Danielle Staub herself will officially be back on the show next time around!!!

Our casting suspicions were confirmed by Real Mr. Housewife on Wednesday, whose industry insiders claim the mother-of-two will be back for the first time since her devastating Season 2 departure, saying:
"At this point, the show is not interested in bringing her on as a full-time Housewife. Rather, they see Danielle returning in a role of a friend of the Housewives." We'll take whatever guaranteed drama we can get!
We're hoping Dani's demotion to "Friend of" will play out similarly to Claudia Jordan role's on RHOA – getting bumped up to main cast after proving herself within the first few episodes.

Shannon Beador Shoots Down Vicki Gunvalson’s Spousal Abuse Allegations: ‘My Husband Did Not Beat Me’
Vicki Gunvalson was hurt, so she wanted to hurt Shannon Beador.

That was the reasoning the 54-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star gave for spreading unverified rumors that Shannon’s husband, David Beador, was physically abusive towards Shannon in the past.

During Monday’s explosive end to the three-part RHOC reunion, Shannon maintained that Gunvalson was lying and that David “doesn’t beat the s— out of [her].” But Gunvalson bitterly stood by her seemingly false allegations and refused to apologize — even after Shannon clarified the story Gunavlson was using as “proof” of the spousal abuse.

Shannon and David had gotten into an argument after she learned about David’s affair, two-and-a-half years prior to the reunion’s taping, Shannon explained. He locked himself in a room and, trying to get to him, Shannon had attempted to barge through the door. In the process, she bruised her right shoulder and her right hip.

Earlier in the evening, Shannon said she had also gone out to dinner with David and “either had too much to drink or was slipped something.” She blacked out, and David found her blocks from the bar — with rips on her knees and blood on her pants.

“That was the darkest place for me,” Shannon said, showing host Andy Cohen pictures of the bruising. “I charged a door down in one of my darkest moments when I found out my husband had an affair … We went to Hawaii two days later, and I have huge bruises. [But] my husband did not beat me. He had had an affair on me and I was doing my best to bring my family back together.”

She also explained a 2003 call she made to police while she and David were having an argument. “It was nothing physical,” Shannon said. “We had a verbal argument — I wanted the argument to end.”

After hearing the story, even Gunvalson’s only ally Kelly Dodd sided with Shannon and said that her story made sense. But Gunvalson wouldn’t back down.

“That’s a typical classic abusive situation — you deny,” Gunvalson said, telling Shannon “I hope to God you’re not abused. When you called me screaming for your life? I hope it was not true.”

“I will never ever condone a man touching a woman,” she added. “Just saw the way your husband speaks to woman. And I know he yells at you and I know it’s physical … I will always look on the right side and the right side is a man will never touch a woman.”

Tamra Judge to Vicki Gunvalson at 'Real Housewives of Orange County' Reunion: “Shut Up, Old Lady”
During the conclusion of the three-part Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, Tamra Judge had a Carol Burnett moment. After sharing a quiet moment on stage talking about the ladies’ traumatic Glamis dune buggy accident, the drama between Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson reignites. The subject of Vicki repeating a rumor about Tamra’s husband Eddie allegedly being gay is brought up. When host Andy Cohen asks Vicki if she knew if the rumor was true or not, Vicki says, “No, I don’t know if it’s true.” When Tamra yells c’mon! to Vicki, Vicki yells back, “You’ve been trashing me for three years!" That’s when Tamra points her finger at Vicki and says, “Shut up, old lady.”

Vicki is old enough to remember The Carol Burnett Show's Eunice and Mama sketches. Eunice (Burnett) is constantly trying to please her domineering mother, Mama (Vicki Lawrence), who constantly belittles her daughter. But every once in a while, Eunice reaches her boiling point and utters the words, “Shut up, old lady.” The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Mondays at 8pm on Bravo.

Dolores Catania Reveals Past History with 'Real Housewives of New Jersey', Botched Breast Surgery and How She's Responsible for Danielle Staub Getting on Show
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" newbie Dolores Catania has actually been part of the extended "RHONJ" circle for years, but she tells that she was actually supposed to be one of titular housewives in the first season but dropped out, paving the way for Danielle Staub to join the cast.

Haledon's Catania, who is long divorced with two children (although she still has a cozy relationship with her ex-husband, as seen by his bankrolling of her kitchen renovation in season 7), decided to leave the show mid-taping for two reasons, she explains. 

"My children were little at the time and they were at an age when they needed me, and the first season of 'Housewives' was taking a lot from everybody because it was huge." Also, she says, she had mixed feelings about playing the role of the "single girl," and "the way they were producing back then was not going to put me in a very good light. That was a parental decision for me. And they scrambled around to find someone."

They came up with Staub, a larger-than-life divorcee from Wayne who bragged about her romantic entanglements and wealth. A little digging into Staub's past by her co-stars (or savvy producers) turned up some less savory details, including an arrest for being part of a kidnapping for ransom plot, her admitted work as a stripper, and allegations she worked as a prostitute. That devolved into the instantly iconic "RHONJ" confrontation in which co-star Teresa Giudice attempting to flip a table on Staub.

Socialite Tinsley Mortimer Starts Filming ‘Real Housewives of New York’
After reports that socialite Tinsley Mortimer will be the newest member of “The Real Housewives of New York,” Page Six has exclusively learned she’s started filming the Bravo series at numerous locations this week.

Spies at a second-anniversary bash for Midtown “Housewives” hangout Beautique said Mortimer was filming the show with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan on Wednesday till 2 a.m. “The newest member of ‘Housewives,’ Tinsley, was flirting with all the boys,” said a spy at the party.

“But she was well-behaved. Ramona and Tinsley had many glasses of champagne, but they decided to sober up by ordering a couple of appetizers to the lounge. The ladies left at 2 a.m.”

Rapper Busta Rhymes was at Beautique’s bar, “knocking back shots of Don Julio 1492 tequila,” a spy said. But when the “Housewives” producers “tried to talk him into appearing on camera, there was a resounding ‘no.’ ”

Also this week, “The Tins” was seen at a surprise birthday party for Singer at the Glasshouses, designed by Lawrence Scott. “All the ‘Housewives’ were there, except Bethenny Frankel,” a source said. “Tinsley was there. She’s definitely the next new ‘Real Housewife.’ ”

The ex-wife of Topper Mortimer and onetime top New York socialite is making a return to town after a tumultuous relocation to Palm Beach, Fla. In April, she was embarrassingly arrested for trespassing outside the home of her on/off boyfriend, Alexander “Nico” Fanjul, while he was inside with another woman. (She said she left her purse there, which he denied).

Mortimer explained in Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue: “I went down to Palm Beach, and I was just walking away from everything . . . I wanted to start over . . . My biggest mistake was that I was running away from something here in New York and I ran into the wrong hands.”

She starred in the short-lived 2010 reality series “High Society,” which was scoffed at by New York blue-bloods. A socially connected insider sniffed on Friday: “The ‘Housewives’ have been trying to get her forever . . . I guess they finally did it.”

Ramona Singer Celebrates 60th Birthday in Las Vegas
Ramona Singer is saying goodbye to her 50s!

The Real Housewives of New York star rang in her 60th year in Las Vegas on Thursday.

“I’m ageless,” she exclusively tells PEOPLE. “I feel great. I’m healthy, working out, and happy. I’m basically Benjamin Button!”

Singer and her fellow Housewives, who arrived on Thursday, will be enjoying a luxurious vacation in the city that never sleeps until Sunday.

Staying in 2,400-sq.-ft. suite at the Encore, the women will be living it up with relaxing hikes, massages, brunches and, of course, endless amounts of champagne.

To kick things off, Singer and her squad dined at Andrea at Encore. While there, the guests all wore blonde wigs to become the “Ramona’ettes.” To conclude the evening, the ladies headed back to Singer’s suite, put on silk PJ’s and enjoyed a good old-fashioned sleepover.

To top off the trip, the ladies are scheduled to see the ultimate Vegas show: Britney Spears!

Since her divorce from ex Mario Singer was finalized earlier this year, the reality star hasn’t wasted any time getting back into the dating game.

“I’m having a great time,” Singer previously told PEOPLE of embracing the single life once again. “I’m meeting all types of people, going out with all types of people. I got out of a marriage of 23 years, and I think it’s time to go out and have some fun.”

Sheree Whitfield fined for Party at 'Chateau Sheree'
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Sheree Whitfield was fined Friday by Sandy Springs $1,000 for not getting the proper permits for a major housewarming party taped for the popular reality show last month.

She accepted the fine as part of a plea deal with the solicitor. Whitfield, who was on the show full time from 2008 to 2012 and returned last year, will also be under unsupervised probation by the city for 18 months to ensure she files for proper permitting in the future.

David Good, a neighbor of Whitfield’s, showed up at the hearing Friday morning. He had called the cops October 28 when dozens of cars showed up on his cul de sac behind Whitfield’s home and created a traffic nuisance. Good said people parked cars on neighbor’s lawns and blocked the street. He said the show installed a big spotlight that wasn’t allowed either.

“It was an invasion,” he said. “An absolute invasion.” 

Whitfield also didn’t have a certificate of occupancy. 

The production company True Entertainment, which creates “Real Housewives” for Bravo, was too fined $1,000 for not providing proper permits, security or parking. Joye Chin, who oversees production, declined to comment. The $1,000 also included $500 for a June 23 event at Kenya Moore‘s nearby house that also didn’t have proper permits. Moore’s housewarming party was aired two weeks ago on Bravo as part of the season 9 debut. 

The Whitfield party taped last month will air later this season.

Bethenny Frankel Offers to Adopt 5-Year-Old Girl Found Abandoned at NYC Bus Station
Bethenny Frankel wants to adopt a little girl abandoned at New York City's Port Authority bus station on Monday. 

The Real Housewives of New York star tweeted a link to an article detailing the horrific story of the 5-year-old girl being left at the terminal by her father, after her mother was killed.

"How do I adopt this child?" Frankel tweeted on Tuesday.

The child told authorities that she was taken to the bus station by her father, and later led police to her mother's dead body in the family's Connecticut apartment. The unidentified victim was a Guatemalan native and recently moved into the apartment from New Jersey with her husband, and daughter, the Stamford Advocate reports. 

Authorities are still on the hunt for the husband, 32-year-old Elmer Gomez Ruono, who was captured on surveillance camera leaving the Port Authority at 8:30 a.m., roughly 90 minutes before his daughter was discovered. 

The child is currently in the custody of New York's children's services.

Meanwhile, Frankel assured a fan that she was "serious" about her adoption offer, but it looks like she's already hit a road block. 

"Lawyer says [with] the state a private adoption [is] impossible which is now upsetting me more," Frankel wrote adding "That's bulls**t." 

The reality star shared another update on Thursday about feeling "helpless."
"It being another state is making it hard," she explained while including a hopeful message for the child. "Someone with means can get her therapy."

Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson 'On a Campaign' to Get Tamra Judge Booted From 'Real Housewives of Orange County'
It's war in Orange County. Eleven-year Real Housewives vet Vicki Gunvalson and season 11 newcomer Kelly Dodd "are on a campaign" to get castmate Tamra Judge booted from the show, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. 

This past season, viewers saw rookie Dodd, 43, repeatedly come to 54-year-old Gunvalson's defense as the rest of the cast, including Judge, 49, accused the latter of being in on ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' season 10 cancer claims that the cast now believe are false.

The battles culminated in a mudslinging Ireland trip, during which a provoked Dodd told Judge that Gunvalson had repeated a rumor about her husband, Eddie Judge, being gay. 

The source explains that Gunvalson and Dodd — who are still at odds with the entrepreneur — are hoping Judge will not return for season 12 of the Bravo hit. But their mission may prove fruitless. "The more Housewives dislike someone, the more producers want to keep them," notes the insider.  

"Tamra won't rule out reconciling with Vicki," the pal continues. "It breaks Tamra's heart, but she doesn't hate Vicki."

According to a second source, Judge is adding fuel to the fire. "She doesn't talk to Vicki," says the insider, who also alleges Judge "leaked screenshots of Kelly admitting to an affair." (The first source denies the claim.)

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita insisted that she had nothing to do with Teresa Giudice’s arrest. During Part 2 of the Season 7 reunion episode, Teresa claimed that Jacqueline and RHONJ alum Caroline Manzo set her up. But in a recent interview, Jacqueline revealed that she had an idea who actually called the feds on her co-star.

Teresa Giudice did not hold back at the recent Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. After accusing Jacqueline Laurita of being a stripper and selling her story to the tabloids, the RHONJ veteran said that, in her gut, she felt like it was Jacqueline who called the government on her.

Even if Jacqueline repeatedly told Teresa that she had nothing to with her arrest, Teresa insisted that she played a part in it, intentionally or not. Their Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania also did not believe that Jacqueline is capable of doing such a horrible thing to Teresa. Even if it was not Jacqueline, Teresa claimed that she might have had people “do the dirty work for her.”

“I feel like she was definitely dabbling in it. She was speaking to people that maybe those certain people then went to the feds,” she said.

Coming to his wife’s defense, Chris Laurita explained that Jacqueline truly had nothing to do with Teresa and Joe’s arrest. He revealed that they even tried to help in the beginning, but Joe just did not cooperate.
In an interview with Real Mr Housewife, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed that the real problem started when Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, refused to pay his ex-partner back.

“The story I’ve heard is that Joe owed his ex-partner a lot of money and he said if Joe didn’t pay him back he would talk to the Feds,” Jacqueline said.

Joe’s ex-partner reached out to a mutual friend of theirs, who then convinced Chris to talk to Joe and have him sit down with his ex-partner and work out a deal to pay him back “to avoid a bad situation.”

At this point, Jacqueline Laurita shared that she already knew about the ongoing investigation from Melissa and Joe Gorga. Jacqueline predicted that the investigation started when a tax audit showed that the couple has not paid their taxes in years when they were “flashing cash” and “shopping like crazy” on television.

Jules Wainstein's Child Custody Battle Gets Ugly with Talk of Drug Abuse
“Real Housewives of New York” star Jules Wainstein and estranged hubby Michael Wainstein are fighting over custody of their two kids — with the husband claiming she has a history of drug abuse.

The Wainsteins appeared Wednesday in Manhattan matrimonial court, their second appearance in the former couple’s divorce proceedings. They currently share custody of their kids.

Michael Wainstein’s lawyer, Morghan Richardson, said he wants custody of the kids, claiming she “has a history of drug use and abuse.”

“Look no further than to watch TV to see the bag of drugs that she carries around,” Richardson said, alluding to a summer episode of “Real Housewives of New York” in which she talks about carrying lidocaine and Percocet with her.

Richardson also said Jules Wainstein had a “stint at a rehab center” for drug abuse and an eating disorder.

Justice Michael Katz demanded evidence of the alleged drug abuse, such as an affidavit from their nanny, saying “I don't try cases based on what may or may not be on the television.”

Asked about allegations of drug abuse and her husband’s push for custody, Jules Wainstein said after the hearing, “I'm not allowed to talk, I'm sorry.”

Kenya Moore Isn't Giving Up on Her Boyfriend Matt Jordan
To keep it real, Kenya Moore's relationship with Matt Jordan hasn't always been peaches and cream.  

While the couple has shared plenty of happy moments on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the season ahead promises some dramatic moments.

And after the pair called it quits over Memorial Day weekend, some fans thought Kenya and Matt would be done for good.

"It was an incident while we were on vacation with him kicking the door," the Bravo star shared with E! News. "It was really a little disheartening to know that you can be that angry or upset that you feel the need to kick a door but he's a big guy and very strong and muscular and so I'm sure he was just trying to get in and it just ended up being kicked in but that's still no excuse. Walk away, calm down, call a friend, talk yourself off of a ledge and then come back and speak to someone with sense."
As viewers learned in the first two episodes of the season, both parties are trying to make it work. 

And before you judge Kenya's decision, the reality star wants to make a few things clear.

"I have never felt one time during our entire relationship that he would ever lay a finger on me," she told E! News. "I know that his heart is a heart of gold. I have not been able to say that about other men that I have dated."

One co-star who thinks the couple should keep going is Phaedra Parks. During our interview, Kenya shared some of the words of wisdom she received from the newly divorced attorney.

"Her advice to me was basically if you love him, try to work it out," she explained to us. "If you need to get help for both of you, try to work it out."

The Real Housewives of Orange County Recap: Kelly Dodd Takes Back Every Apology Then Denies She's Got Anger Issues
And we’re back for part two of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion craziness. It’s astounding to me that even with the cameras rolling and with footage proving their deepest regrets that they’ll still deny or lie whenever it suits Kelly and Vicki them all best.

Tonight, Shannon, Kelly, and Vicki were in the hot seat — but that didn’t stop fancy/bossy pants Heather from getting in her two dollars worth (she’s way too rich to just add two cents!). Here’s the highlights of the best bombshells, craziest defenses and all around insanity (mainly from Kelly)!
  • Vicki can’t accept that Shannon and David’s vow renewal is the real deal because Vicki’s televised vow renewal to Don didn’t last. Don even said afterward, “Well, that will be good for TV!” But Vicki and Don were unfaithful to each other; only David cheated so Shannon is adamant that it’s TOTALLY different.
  • In case you were wondering, those sitting on the couch with sex tapes under their belts include Tamra, Meghan, and Andy!
  • Shannon’s issues with her evil mother-in-law began after Shannon called her out for not helping with the dishes. I have to say, anyone with a MIL may actually see the rationale there…
  • I actually think Vicki’s eyebrows raised up to the ceiling when Shannon called Tamra “one of my best friends.”
  • David’s mistress sits in front of them at football games. Am I a terrible person for having a zillion ideas in my brain for how Shannon could really mess with her (she basically just needs a hot dog overflowing with ketchup and mustard, a straw and well, use your imagination!)
  • The tag lines for next season are in the works:
    “Are you kidding me?” —Shannon
    “By the way…” —Heather
    “Of course!” —Kelly
    “Let’s whoop it up!” —Vicki
    “Jesus, help me here.” —Tamra
    “Sperm.” —Meghan
  • Heather won’t reveal the price of her new mansion and no one has been invited over yet, but that doesn’t stop Kelly from thinking it’s in the $20-million-plus range! Duh, it does have custom ice cubes and a porte cochere!
  • Vicki’s new boyfriend Steve must be a keeper (though he doesn’t have to do much to look better than Brooks). He gets the seal of approval from Briana — even Tamra has nice things to say!

Kelly Bensimon Says Something Reasonable About 2016 Election and Gets Attacked on Twitter
Kelly Bensimon hasn’t been on The Real Housewives of New York for a couple of years, but it sounds like she can’t escape the label that was placed on her during her time on the show. Bensimon filmed with Bethenny Frankel and things quickly escalated between them. Because Frankel is a bit more aggressive and outspoken, people quickly felt that something was wrong with Kelly. While her Real Housewives of New York co-stars said that she had suffered a mental breakdown while filming the show, Bensimon called it a “mental breakthrough” as she said she had been bullied on the show.

According to a new tweet, Kelly Bensimon can’t seem to escape the harsh comments from her Real Housewives of New York viewers. Some people still call Bensimon delusional from what happened on the show, so when Kelly started talking about the presidential election results and how people could move forward from Donald Trump winning, people quickly called her delusional and privileged.

“All I can say is change starts at home. There is no crisis! Work on building strong communities. Its OUR country,” Kelly Bensimon revealed on Twitter, talking as if she’s sharing her opinion about the recent presidential election, to which one person replied, “You are privileged. Own it. Then use it to help those who feel it IS a crisis. Don’t minimize half the country’s feelings.”
But Kelly took great offense to that comment, as she didn’t see herself as privileged. Bensimon has been vocal about growing up in the midwest, as she said she grew up eating meat and potatoes while filming The Real Housewives of New York. Kelly Bensimon didn’t come from money, but she claims she’s self-made. So comments about her status these days is highly offensive.
“I’m from Rockford, Illinois. I worked really hard to get where I am. Please don’t tell me about the Midwest and middle class,” Kelly Bensimon replied to the person, sharing that she was born and raised in the midwest and she understands where Trump supporters are coming from, as she is from these states.

“I have the privilege of an incredible education, and a strong work ethic. Give me solutions to help others…,” Kelly Bensimon asked her Twitter followers, but sadly the tweet didn’t give her the answers she was looking for.
But some people feel that Kelly’s previous marriage to a famous and rich photographer and her luxurious life, which includes a Manhattan apartment and a Hamptons home, has influenced her position. One person even argued that Bensimon was completely out of touch with reality, especially out of touch with what these states really wanted in a leader.

“You’re out of touch because of your privilege you need to understand the actual needs and struggles people face,” one person wrote to Bensimon, who replied with, “Please don’t ever tell me I’m out of touch. You have no idea what I see/know. I don’t judge you, don’t judge me. Be the best version of YOU!”
Even though Kelly kept getting some harsh tweets from people, she tried to keep it cool, talking about how she was a single mother of two, trying to raise her daughters. Bensimon also talked about how she really wanted to help people and they just needed to tell her what she could help with.

“You can be nice and get attention, too. I’m not a real housewife. I’m a single mother raising kids in America. How can I help you?” Kelly Bensimon replied to various people who reached out to her, but sadly things took a turn for the worse. This morning, Kelly Bensimon tweeted out that she would only write about business-related things on social media, as people had simply been too mean to her, writing, “Tweeters. I had some very bad news. I will not be tweeting unless Its work oriented. I’m happy I was here for you during your time of fear.”

Phaedra Parks’ Ex-Husband Apollo Nida Is Engaged … From Prison
Onto the next one! The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Apollo Nida is engaged from prison, two sources confirm to Us Weekly.

According to one insider, the woman — who has yet to be identified — “does appear on the show later in the season at one of the cast events.”

TMZ reports that Nida, 37, and his ladylove began dating two years ago, before he began his eight-year prison sentence for fraud in September 2014. This means that Nida and his fiancée started seeing each other before the fitness enthusiast’s ex-wife, Phaedra Parks, filed for divorce in 2015 after nearly five years of marriage. 

The Secrets of the Southern Belle author, 43, confirmed during an appearance on TMZ’s Raq Rants that she and Nida recently finalized their divorce.

Meghan King Edmonds Confesses To Shopping At Goodwill
Meghan King Edmonds is expecting her daughter to arrive in just weeks — but she’s already counting pennies for her college fund!

The Real Housewives of Orange County (Watch Live) star, 32, told The Penny Hoarder that she loves shopping at Goodwill and goes “about once a month!”

While she drives around in luxury cars and wears designer clothes on the show, she has no problem buying used books, dolls, and even clothes for other people at the donation-based store.

“Lately I’ve been obsessed with sports shorts for my stepdaughter because they are so expensive to buy new and she just ruins them or grows out of them anyway,” she said.

She also revealed that she uses “Craigslist, under a man’s name of course and always in a public location,” and encourages others to do the same.

Finally, Edmonds added that she shares her findings with Shannon Beador — who is a fan of shopping at consignment stores!

And....Lisa Vanderpump Is Your 'President of the Real Housewives'
After weeks of campaigning, mud-slinging, and some big-name celebrity endorsements, you went to the polls and made your voice heard in the other most important election happening this year: The Real Housewives Awards: Decision 2016. Andy Cohen revealed the big winners during a special installment of Watch What Happens Live Monday night. 

Not only was Lisa Vanderpump Andy's guest in the Bravo Clubhouse but she was also elected President of the Real Housewives. She was even sworn in right on the spot, promising to "shadily execute the office of President of the Real Housewives" and "drink rosé and uphold the constitution of the Clubhouse, so help me, Giggy." Here's hoping an epic celebration is in the works at SUR or PUMP.
 Dorinda Medley also stopped by to accept the honor of Speaker of the Housewives. "Well, I think I deserve it because I did make it nice," Dorinda said of the disastrous Berkshires getaway last season of The Real Housewives of New York City on WWHL. "I worked very hard that weekend, and they came up and made a disaster of it."
