LuAnn de Lesseps Dishes on All the Details on Her New Year's Eve Wedding


People.com:
The Countess is getting hitched!

Less than a month has passed since her businessman fiancé, Tom D'Agostino popped the question, but de Lesseps is already planning all the details for her walk down the aisle.

"I plan to make it a weekend to remember, with a cocktail party on a private yacht kicking it off," she tells PEOPLE of the Palm Beach, Florida, destination wedding set for New Year's Eve (which also happens to be D'Agostino's 50th birthday).


This is the second wedding for the Real Housewives of New York City star, 49. She eloped in 1993 and wed French count Alexandre de Lesseps (they divorced in 2009), so this time around she plans to make it a traditional affair presided over by a Catholic priest.  

And there will be plenty of extras for her 200 guests – the couple is hosting a big brunch for everyone on New Year's Day and hints she's inviting some "special friends" to add to the festivities.

"We are so happy, and I'm grateful to have found a love and a soulmate the second time around," she says. "Tom is a great catch."

Kim Richards To Be A Grandmother, Daughter Brooke Wiederhorn Expecting Baby


USmagazine.com:
Getting ready to be grandma! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards has some exciting family news to celebrate: Her daughter Brooke Wiederhorn is expecting a baby. 

The reality star's daughter made the happy announcement on Sunday, March 27, when she shared an Instagram picture of an Easter basket filled with baby toys, and explained all in her caption.

"Happy Easter," she wrote. "Can't wait to meet our baby BOY!" 

The happy family news comes as Richards continues to strengthen ties with her sisters, Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton, with all three of them heading to Palm Springs, California, for the weekend to celebrate the Easter holiday.

Talking about how she and sister Kyle had made amends earlier this month on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kim admitted she'd had to move past some of the pain the relationship has previously caused her.  

"It was hard. It was very difficult," Kim, 51, told the WWHL host. "For myself, I have to take the hurt — the hurt won't ever really go away. But there's certain things that she had done toward me that I personally have to — things that happened between us, that I have to put aside if I want to move forward."

Former Intern Claims Sonja Morgan Is A Terrible Boss


FOXNews.com:
"Real Housewife" star Sonja Morgan is the boss from hell says a former intern.

Rachel McMahon who worked for the reality star for three years says the socialite was a nightmare to work for reports Rob Shuter of naughtygossip. McMahon says that she toiled for Morgan for three years and has quit more than once.

“She reduced me to tears on more than one occasion, has been incredibly rude, selfish and insensitive – and I stayed quiet,” claims McMahon in an online essay. “She has bullied those who have been incredibly supportive to her, screaming, yelling. And she lies. She lied about me and revealed a very private element of my life on TV for no reason at all.

The 30-year-old former intern denies that she’s hungry for fame.

“I’ve seen ‘fame’ up close,” she wrote. “I don’t want a shred of it. It’s not real, it’s generally pointless and it commands a great deal of hypocrisy.

"No story. She's a nut," responded the 52-year-old "Housewife" when informed of the allegations. "She's looking for attention."

Jacqueline Laurita Will Be Fired From ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ If She Refuses to Film Finale After Bitter Fight


InTouchWeekly.com:
Jacqueline Laurita will be fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey if she fails to appear at Melissa Gorga's fashion show in New Jersey on Wednesday night, which is being billed as an all-cast event, requiring all of the reality stars to appear. 

After almost getting into a physical fight with costar, Robyn Levy, during the cast trip to Vermont several weeks ago, and getting into a bitter dispute with Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, a production source tells In Touch, "Jacqueline thinks she can just call the shots regarding fulfilling filming requirements. Melissa's fashion show will be the grand finale event for the upcoming season of RHONJ and all of the ladies will be there. Since the fallout of the trip to Vermont, Jacqueline has bailed on filming with Robyn, Teresa and Melissa.”

“Bravo obviously wants and needs Jacqueline to be there on Wednesday night because it will be the first time everyone will be together since the trip to Vermont. By not showing up, Jacqueline will jeopardize not having those moments on camera. Viewers will definitely want to see the aftermath and how Jacqueline handles herself," the source told In Touch Weekly

The cast trip to Vermont was indeed "explosive, and viewers are going to be stunned at what went down. It wasn't as shocking as Teresa infamously flipping the table, but ranks up there as very, very memorable. The season started out rather slow and boring, but really picked up towards the end," the source added.

The fashion show is being held at Macaluso's in Hawthorne, N.J. on March 30 at 6:00 pm. The event is open to the public, but requires a ticket purchase with prices ranging from $90 to $395. Proceeds of the benefit will Deborah Hospital Foundation.

Gizelle Bryant Thinks Katie Rost Wants To 'Dip In Her Lady Pond'


Inquisitr.com:
The Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant was close friends with Katie Rost, but it sounds like the two are not exactly on good terms while filming the show. Gizelle keeps thinking that Katie wants her — or wants to be her — and Rost keeps thinking that her Real Housewives co-star is rude and arrogant. Obviously, these two could not be any more different. According to a new Bravo report, the Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant is now revealing that she thinks that her co-stars are crazy. It all started when Ashley Darby’s husband decided to grab Katie’s man’s behind during a party, which aired on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Potomac.

“I never in a MILLION years thought I would be able to utter the words in my head, ‘Michael is Charmin toilet paper SQUEEZING Andrew’s butt on the dance floor.’ I said to myself, ‘Am I seeing what I think I’m seeing’… ‘No, say it ain’t so’… ‘Golly gee wilikers’… ‘Now ain’t this some nonsense,’ ” Gizelle reveals about her Real Housewives co-stars, sharing that she was shocked to see Michael grab Andrew’s behind.
Of course, Michael has shown his crazy side on The Real Housewives Of Potomac. Not only did he try to take his pants off during the yacht party, but he also showed up during the girls weekend and caused quite the controversy. He is clearly not a favorite amongst the Real Housewives ladies, but Gizelle was shocked to see what she saw on Sunday’s Real Housewives episode.

“Typically when I tell one of my girlfriends that her husband is on the dance floor squeezing men’s butts (not that this has EVER happened before) the reaction is a little bit different. More along the lines of, “OH HEEELLLLL NO,” there is a whole lot of hands flaring, neck rolling, fingers pointing while still screaming “OH HEEEELLLL NOOOOOOO.” I NEVER thought that Ashley’s immediate response would be, “Oh, he was just joking.” I just really, really, really wanted Ashley to understand that NO ONE was laughing,” Bryant revealed about Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac.

It is one thing for Andrew to get his butt grabbed, but Gizelle seems to think that something is going on with her Real Housewives co-star Katie. It is no secret that Rost has expressed an interest in ladies and she may see herself as a bisexual. But Bryant does think that her Real Housewives co-star wants to get in her pants.

“I never asked Ashley and Katie if Michael squeezing Andrew’s butt was a ‘white thing’… that was Robyn’s question. However, Katie of course asks herself if Gizelle is obsessed with race because she’s obsessed with ME. Every other word out of Katie’s mouth is Gizelle. Gizelle, Gizelle, Gizelle..I’m starting to think that not only is she obsessed with me, but Katie REALLY wants to take a big dip into MY lady pond. HA!” Bryant revealed to Bravo.

TMZ.com:
'Real Housewives of Atlanta' producers let a giant skeleton out of Porsha Williams' closet at the final reunion show taping ... raw footage of her dark alley assault on pal Jami Ziegler.

We broke the story ... Porsha allegedly attacked Jami at a party in December while being filmed ... all because she didn't like the person Jami brought as her plus one.

Our sources say the whole thing was captured on a camera  ... notably Porsha throwing some pretty mean punches, and the footage will air in April. 

We're told several women on the show want her kicked off since it was her third fight with castmates ... Cynthia, Kenya and now Jami, if you're keeping score.

Porsha knows how to keep the paychecks coming.

Cynthia Bailey's Husband Peter Thomas ‘Bowing Out’ of ‘RHOA’ Amid Marriage Separation Rumors


EurWeb.com:
Peter Thomas, the husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey, says he will no longer appear on the show because it’s bad for his marriage.

“Those shows are created to destroy marriage, not to empower marriage… so I’m choosing to bow out,” Thomas told the blog Straight From the A. “That’s my choice. This season was so beautiful to me the way it ended…. and I don’t want to f*ck that up.”

Peter’s decision comes days after Cynthia said publicly of her marriage, “I don’t know what’s gonna happen.” But Peter also told Straight From the A that he has not cheated on the former model.

“Since I’ve been married to my wife, I haven’t cheated on my wife with anyone. I happen to be old fashioned and actually am in love with my wife,” he said.

Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel Call ‘Real Housewives of New York’ Season 8 a ‘Roller Coaster Of Crazy’


Inquisitr.com:
With a year under her belt, Bethenny Frankel is more than ready for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York. With the season currently in production, Frankel and co-star Carole Radziwill assured fans that they were in for a “roller coaster of crazy” when the hit reality series returns to television in April. With that in mind, what does the 8th season of RHONY have in store for viewers?
According to Radar Online, Radziwill recently teased fans by hinting that the season will feature more than one twist by the time things are over. Considering all the drama that went down last season, which marked Frankel’s first since her departure in season 3, there’s no telling what will unfold in the coming year.
“But get ready for an emotional roller coaster of crazy like you’ve not seen before,” Radziwill stated. “Where things start in Episode 1 is most definitely not where they will end by the reunion.”
Fortunately, the first trailer for new season shed some light on the coming drama. According to PEOPLE, the new season of The Real Housewives of New York will see the return of Frankel, Radziwill, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Ramona Singer. The series is also set to introduce newbie, Julianne “Jules” Wainstein, who was also featured for the first time in the trailer.

Apart from the normal drama that is expected to unfold between the ladies, the trailer revealed that Frankel is fighting a mysterious health issue. Unfortunately, Frankel has yet to discuss the true nature behind her health scare and just how serious it is.
In addition to her medical issues, Frankel will also be dealing with all the drama from her co-stars. In fact, the reality star recently took to Twitter and promised fans that the drama reaches new heights this season.
“Good Lord, buckle up for April 6: and make sure u have an air sick bag cuz there’s gonna be turbulence #RHONY,” she wrote.

To add to Frankel’s comments, Morgan recently sat down with Radar Online and dished on what becomes of her complicated relationship with Frankel. For starters, Morgan shared how their emotions often stand in the way and prevent them from fully resolving their issues.

“The problem is we are both very sensitive,” Morgan told the outlet. “So we both get hurt. You will have to see where it takes us this season.”

Brooks Ayers Speaks Out on Forging Cancer Records, Vicki Gunvalson and RHOC Controversy: 'I Was the Subject of Much Ridicule and Hate'


People.com:
Brooks Ayers is opening up after admitting in November he forged medical records relating to his cancer diagnosis.

In an exclusive statement to PEOPLE, Ayers details how the public scrutiny that came with appearing on four seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County alongside ex Vicki Gunvalson made him "the subject of much ridicule and hate," and ultimately contributed to the end of his relationship with Gunvalson.

"I have made my share of mistakes which I regret. I pride myself in apologizing when I am wrong or have wronged others either intentionally or unintentionally," Ayers says in the statement. "Through the first five years of dating Vicki, I was coined as a con man, low life, gold digger, dead beat, etc.  Nothing could be further from the truth in reality, yet this alone makes for great TV and for controversy."

In November, Ayers admitted he had forged documents to make it appear he had been a patient at cancer hospital City of Hope. At the time, he apologized and said he faked the documents because he did not want to disclose his real medical records. The revelation came after his cancer diagnosis had been called into question by some of Gunvalson's RHOC costars, with the diagnosis becoming major storyline on the show. Ayers maintains he was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2013. 


In his statement to PEOPLE, Ayers denies speculation that Gunvalson encouraged him to forge the cancer documents or sought to use his illness as a storyline on RHOC. Ayers says when he received a cancer diagnosis in 2013, he attempted to keep it a secret. He told Gunvalson but asked her not to share the news publicly.

"However, Vicki felt compelled to share a private email later that night with Tamra Judge and Lauri Peterson along with a text to Shannon Beador asking for all of their support during this time rather than conflict. I was not okay with that at all when I found out about it, however the information about my diagnosis was out," says Ayers.

Brandi Glanville Accuses Lisa Rinna of Wearing a Wig


InTouch.com:
In last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville returned with a vengeance, and called out costar Lisa Rinna.

Lisa previously claimed Yolanda Foster’s lyme disease diagnosis was munchausen syndrome — a mental disorder in which a person acts as though he or she is physically or mentally ill.

“Well, I think that wig glue is going to her brain and she needs to check herself,” Brandi, 43, told her friend Yolanda, coming to her defense.

When Gigi Hadid’s mom appeared surprised, Brandi continued, “One wig and one style. I’m not lying! She wears wigs!”

Brandi did not stop there!

She told cameras, “What the f--k is wrong with her? Dear Lisa Rinna, get a f--king life, eat some food and stop talking about my friends."

Cynthia Bailey Reveals Her Marriage to Peter Thomas Might 'Not Keep Going'


ETOnline.com:
Cynthia Bailey's marriage to Peter Thomas may have survived this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but the reality star says she's not sure if it will last much longer.

"Only God knows what's going to happen with that," Cynthia candidly tells ETonline. "There's a point where, if it's working, we'll keep going. And if it's not, then we might not keep going." 

Cynthia and Peter put all their issues out there in season eight, confronting cheating rumors, communication issues and living separate lives, all on camera. One memorably tense scene ended with Peter asking Cynthia, "I just want to know, when did you stop loving me?" 

"I wasn't prepared for that question, 'cause I didn't know the answer," Cynthia says. "You know, I just went into it to break up."

"[The relationship] just felt like so much work, like from the beginning," Cynthia adds. "Even the wedding, everything was work … it's exhausting. It's exhausting in real life, and it's definitely exhausting to watch it play out on TV."

"I'm a lover of love," Cynthia continues. "You know, I am the woman that will leave New York City and relocate with her child and nanny to Atlanta for love, OK? So, with that said, I think I get to be that same girl who can say, 'You know, I think it's time for me to pack up my tent -- my love tent -- and move somewhere else now.'"

Kim Richards Says Alcohol Issues Started During Her Second Divorce


People.com:
Kim Richards' longtime struggle with alcoholism has made national headlines in recent years, most recently following an arrest for public intoxication last April, but the reality star's issues with alcohol didn't start until she was in her mid-20s.

"I had my first real drink at 24," Richards tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week's issue. The former child actress, who now stars on Lifetime's The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition, says prior to that she had "sips every now and then," but the problem only developed during the painful end of her second marriage.


Until her split from second husband Gregg Davis in 1991 (they have two children: Whitney, 26, and Chad 24; Richards also has Brooke, 30, and Kimberly, 20, from other relationships), "I was always disciplined and driven about my body and what I put into it," says Richards, 51. "But the pressure with the divorce and the custody battle, it got to me."

Richards says she began drinking a glass of wine at night, which soon escalated into more. "I started noticing I was drinking a lot," she says. "That's when my issue started."

Bethenny Frankel Is Done Paying Nearly $12,000 a Month in Spousal Support to Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy


USWeekly.com:
She’s keeping her money! Bethenny Frankel no longer has to pay her estranged husband Jason Hoppy almost $12,000 a month in temporary spousal support, a state appeals court ruled on Tuesday, March 22, according to the New York Daily News

The Real Housewives of New York City star was ordered last May to fork over the large alimony payments. In the appeals court decision, however, the majority of the judges noted that the couple had a prenuptial agreement that waived “any and all claims for spousal support and/or maintenance,” which they felt should include temporary support, the Daily News reported.

Next up in the bitter divorce battle, the reality star, 45, will have to fight to keep her $5 million Tribeca condo that she bought in a joint trust with Hoppy, 45, during their marriage. During season 7 of the reality show, viewers saw the Skinnygirl mogul living out of hotels while her ex kept the Tribeca pad, until she finally bought a new place. 

Even though Frankel, who has made millions off her line of Skinnygirl products, bought the Tribeca home with her own money, the court agreed that the businesswoman is not automatically entitled to full ownership because several issues must still be decided. Some of the issues include Frankel questioning whether Hoppy, her former business manager, was “involved in any fraud in the preparation and execution of the trust agreement.”
 
“My client is extremely happy that the court agrees with him that the ownership of the apartment is still an open issue,” Hoppy’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, told the newspaper. “And he will get his day in court to show that he is a joint owner.”

Kim Fields: I’m ‘Done’ With 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'


USWeekly.com:
One and done! Kim Fields announced that she will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta for another season during a chat with the hosts of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show on Monday, March 21. The Facts of Life actress, 46, joined the cast in 2015 for season 8 of the hit reality show. 

“It feels more like Brett Favre and the Jets, you know  I'm done,” Fields said, referencing the quarterback’s single season with the NFL team. "I think about too, at the beginning of the season, what did my mama say? ‘Get in and get out.’ Listen to your mama.”

Though she won’t be back, the TV director said she’s thankful for her time on Housewives. "It was for the experience,” she told the radio show. "It was to be able to do a genre that I’d been asked to do before and finding a way to do it that made sense for my team and and for the family. Overall it was a really great experience."

Fields also discussed her ongoing feud with Kenya Moore, who bashed her success in an episode earlier this year. “I don’t think we can really always judge how people feel about their own successes,” the Living Single actress said. "Just enjoy what you got!”
Nene was right on Kim Fields not 'being a good fit' for RHOA and I guess Kim finally caught on too. Moving forward, I'd bring back Sheree full-time (esp. since it looks like she's back with ex-husband Bob and wouldn't we all like to see if Chateau Sheree ever gets done?) and hey if RHOA can afford Nene's price tag, why not bring the Queen back full-time too?

The Original Housewives of Orange County Get Real on the First Season, 10 Years Later


EW.com:
Ten years ago, on March 21, 2006, The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered, and forever changed reality TV. The first series of Bravo’s hit Real Housewives franchise, RHOC is currently in production for an 11th season, which is set to begin airing this summer. When the pilot debuted a decade ago, it kicked off one of the biggest reality TV phenomena in the format’s brief history — not that anybody knew it at the time.

“I did not think it would make it to television,” original cast member Lauri Peterson tells EW. “I thought, ‘Okay, they’ll shoot a few scenes and try to put it together, and just like a million other people that attempted a reality show, it won’t fly and that will be it.’”

She wasn’t alone in that lack of foresight. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the premiere of RHOC — and by extension, the 10th anniversary of the birth of the entire Real Housewives empire — EW caught up with Peterson and her season 1 castmates Jo De La Rosa, Vicki Gunvalson, and Jeana Keough, none of whom ever dreamed that the show would reach its current degree of popularity.

”I really never thought it was going to amount to anything,” admits Gunvalson, the only original Housewife who is still a member of the current cast. “Reality wasn’t a thing back then,” De La Rosa adds. “It was a very foreign concept to me.” Keough echoes her sentiment, “I don’t think I even knew what a reality show was.”

The first season’s opening credits begin with the foreword, “Seven million families live in gated communities.” The five wives of RHOC’s first season — Peterson, De La Rosa, Gunvalson, Keough, and Kimberly Bryant — all lived in the exclusive gated community Coto De Caza in Orange County, California, and the Desperate Housewives-inspired series sought to examine their lavish lifestyle “behind the gates.”

“The homeowner’s association had big meetings at the club, trying to decide if there was any way they could stop us from filming,” Keough recalls. “They tried to see if they could fight it, and the lawyers would say, ‘No, look, it’s not even a big production.’ Back then we had karaoke boxes and a little handheld movie camera; now, it’s a full-on four-camera shoot.”
Kimberly Bryant must've really gone into hiding for them not to even get a quote from her.

Teresa's Husband Joe ‘Juicy’ Giudice says Prison Will Be ‘No Big Deal,’ Looks Forward to Sobriety


NYDailyNews.com:
There will be no jailhouse hooch on tap for Joe "Juicy" Giudice.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, who begins his 41-month prison sentence Wednesday at the Federal Correction Institution in Fort Dix, is looking at it like rehab.

"I am not going to be able to drink for a while which is good because I don't even know when it's been since I haven't had a drink," he told People.

The 43-year-old said he started drinking up to two bottles of wine a day after his wife Teresa left to serve her 14-month sentence in Danbury, Conn.

She was released in December.

The couple pleaded guilty in 2014 to bankruptcy fraud and conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

They were sentenced to consecutive prison terms so one parent could reside at their North Jersey home with daughters, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6.

Unlike his wife, who compared her prison sentence to "hell," he seems unfazed.

"It's not a big deal," he told People. "They tell me that the low security and the camp there are almost the same so it's no big deal."

Phaedra Parks Says She's 'Open tAgaino Love'


ABCNews.com:
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks says she's still open to love despite her very public separation from estranged husband Apollo Nida, who is currently serving an eight-year prison stint for bank fraud and identity theft. 

Parks told ABC News that she still believes in the institution of marriage. 

“I do believe in love,” she revealed. “This has not tainted my view on the sanctity of marriage, the importance of marriage, the importance of relationships.” 

“I mean I think I’m a pretty great catch," she continued. "I’m a young woman and I’m still pretty vivacious. 
So I don’t have anyone that I’m dating now because I’m still married and we’re going through the process of divorce but I’m open to dating once it’s finalized. I’m open to love.” 

For now though, the drama of her split is playing out in front of the cameras during the current season of the hit Bravo reality series. One episode showed scenes of the soon-to-be single mom and her two young children journeying to visit Nida in a federal jail.

Lisa Vanderpump At War With Eileen Davidson Over ‘Murdering Dogs’ Joke


RadarOnline.com:
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump is at war with co-star Eileen Davidson and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the feud is about to get seriously ugly!

On Thursday, Davidson, 56 — who is currently in her third season on Bravo’s hit franchise — took to her blog and joked, “Next week all of us, and our issues, are packing up and headed to Dubai. I wonder if there are any dogs there I can murder?” It was a reference to Vanderpump’s anger about her skipping a dog-related event, which Davidson said had nothing to do with her feelings about the animals, but only her schedule.

As fans know, Vanderpump is a HUGE animal rights activist and is also the founder of Stop Yulin Forever, which is a grassroots movement to end the barbaric torture and murdering of dogs in China.

Although Davidson’s remarks were obviously facetious, “Lisa and many of her fans were aghast after reading Eileen’s blog post,” a source close to Vanderpump told Radar.

“Making light of Lisa’s passion to stop the barbaric torture of dogs at the Chinese Yulin Festival is just going too far!”

The same day that Davidson made her sarcastic remarks, Vanderpump was spotted at the Global Pet Expo in Florida, where fans were offering their emotional support.

Ramona Singer Signs With Talent Agency


StreamTV.com:
With its ever-growing digital talent division, Abrams Artists Agency has promoted Alec Shankman (pictured, right) from head of alternative programming and digital media, to senior VP of alternative programming, digital media, licensing and branding.

Shankman has been working with Abrams since 2003 and helped launch the agency’s alternative programming and digital media department. He confirmed the promotion on Twitter.

The agency has brought on board a number of new faces to the digital division under Shankman’s reign. Recent signings include Jimmy DiResta, Dr. Mike, Andrea Brooks, Dylan Dauzat and Breland Emory.

The latest to join Abrams’ roster is Real Howewives of New York City star Ramona Singer, who joins the growing number of linear performers making the jump to digital.

Singer will be represented in all areas, including digital and branding, by Abrams’ New York office. The agency has not said what type of digital content Singer will develop, but much of Singer’s career has been focused around fashion and style (Singer earned a degree in marketing and buying/merchandising, and has worked for brands such as Calvin Klein and French Connection). She’s also focused many of her social media posts on healthy living and nutrition for women over 40.

Singer does not yet have an official YouTube presence, but has more than 215,000 followers on Instagram, 457,000 Twitter followers and 237,000 “likes” on Facebook.

She joins a growing number of linear stars — particularly those from the unscripted world — who’ve taken on digital projects in order to reach a broader audience.

Kandi Burruss Lashes Out at Porsha Williams & Phaedra Parks During ‘RHoA’ Reunion (VIDEO)



Wetpaint.com:
Kandi Burruss’ relationship with Phaedra Parks has had some serious ups and downs over the past two seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and despite leaving things on a relatively good note at the end of Season 8, the former BFFs still had a whole lot of drama to work through at the reunion show.

In a new clip from the reunion, the first installment of which airs on Sunday night, Phaedra and Kandi exchange heated words over an argument between Phaedra, Porsha Williams, and Kandi’s assistant, DonJuan Clark, from earlier in the season.

Defending DonJuan’s actions, which included making fun of Porsha’s intellect and sticking up for Todd when he heard Phaedra griping about their business dealings, Kandi says, “My team goes hard for me and I go hard for them.”

“Here’s the thing about DonJuan: I would never let my employees talk about any of my friends,” says Phaedra. “That’s just unprofessional.”

“He wanted camera time,” adds Porsha, noting she felt DonJuan’s words “hit below the belt.”

Despite Porsha and Phaedra’s objections, Kandi made it clear she wasn’t about to concede.

“If you’re talking about my husband, and you’re saying different things about the video and trying to make it seem like he did something wrong, you’re doubting my man, business-wise,” says Kandi.

Kim Richards Plans To Win Back Her Place On ‘The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’


Inquistr.com:
After Kim Richards left The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last year, few thought she’d be back in action the following season. However, Kim managed to work through her issues with substance abuse and made a few cameos this season on the hit reality show. With a full comeback in mind for next year, how is Kim planning on convincing the network to take her back?

For starters, Radar Online is reporting that Kim used her appearance on the show’s reunion episodes to make her case. In particular, Kim has done a lot to mend her relationship with sister Kyle Richards while most of the other cast members also welcomed her with open arms.

“Kim made a triumphant return to film the reunion and everyone was very happy to see her,” a source told the outlet. “Her sister Kyle was very emotional and so happy to see Kim received with such an outpouring of love. Kim said she was sober and had been going to AA meetings.”

Apart from the heartwarming welcome home, the insider added that Kim didn’t waste a minute making it clear that she enjoyed being back on the show. “It was clear that Kim was using this as the opportunity to make the case for her return next season,” the source explained. “She kept saying how good it was to be back and how much she missed everyone.”
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Kim Richards is also prepared to bring her fair share of drama next season. In fact, the reality star threw herself into the drama mix during the reunion when she confronted Lisa Rinna about some of her past comments.

“[Kim] lit into Lisa Rinna about comments she had made in the past,” an insider shared. “She took exception to statements made that Lisa was scared of Kim. It was clear that Kim was hoping to get a reaction from Lisa.”

Claudia Jordan on ‘The Next 15′ Feud With Jennifer Williams, Says Her and Nene Leakes Are Now 'Cool'


Wetpaint.com:
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan and Basketball Wives veteran Jennifer Williams just can’t seem to get along on their new TV One show, The Next 15, and it seems things are only going to get worse.

For the past five episodes of the new hit show, both Claudia and Jennifer have been throwing jabs at each other. While we hoped at some point the ladies would learn to get along, the former Atlanta star tells Wetpaint it would be a long road to a reconciliation.

The Deal or No Deal model explained what she thought caused the rift between herself and the former NBA wife, as well as dished on some of the The Next 15 reunion show showdown, which spilled onto Instagram just days after the filming.

Despite all the insults being spewed back and forth, the 42-year-old actress said she was open to making amends with her castmate, though several changes would have to be made.

Yolanda Foster Storms Out Of ‘RHOBH’ Reunion Taping


RadarOnline.com:
Yolanda Hadid stormed out of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion taping after the women confronted her about perceived inconsistencies regarding her Lyme disease, RadarOnline.com has learned. Why did Bella Hadid's mom get so emotional?

Hadid, 52, "initially didn't want to participate in the reunion taped last Thursday," an insider told Radar. "But Bravo reminded her that it's part of the contract. She knew the women were going to be coming at her, but she had no clue how vicious it was going to be."

At one point, feeling overwhelmed by Lisa Rinna, Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards questioning her about Lyme disease, "Yolanda was getting very defensive, and started crying, as if that might stop the barrage of questions," the insider claimed. "It didn't, and it ended with Yolanda storming off the set."

"She said she felt ganged up on, and it took more than twenty minutes of producers cajoling Yolanda to get her to agree to come back to the set and finish filming," said the insider.

But her costars "didn't feel sorry that Yolanda felt attacked," said the source. "Lisa Rinna said she felt Yolanda used her as a scapegoat all season to deflect from what was going on in her failing marriage to David Foster."

Yolanda Foster's Estranged Husband David Caught Doubting Marriage On ‘RHOBH’


RadarOnline.com:
As Yolanda Foster’s marriage to David continues to unravel on episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it’s no wonder the couple announced their decision to divorce back in December.

But in a new preview of this week’s episode, released exclusively on Entertainment Tonight, David is caught questioning their relationship long before their split was revealed.

During the Global Lyme Alliance’s Uniting for Lyme-Free World gala in New York, which took place back in October, the pair enjoys a cocktail party with fellow cast members Erika Jayne and Kyle Richards.

Minutes into the fun, David is heard discussing his marriage troubles with his friend Tom slightly off-camera. The two do not seem to be wearing microphones.

“Are you feeling better?” Tom asks.

David responds with, “A little, yeah. It’s been a stretch.”

“I want your life to go back to the way it was when you first got together,” Tom says.

“How’s that going to happen?” David responds, dejected, before adding, “I don’t know.”

Meanwhile, during confessional, Yolanda acknowledges David’s doubts, claiming that her health struggles have left her as a “shell” of her former self.

“You know, David has lost his wingman,” she admits. “He married a woman that was a social butterfly, always out, and doing and doing… and all of a sudden, I got sick. And you know, [I’m] the shell of the woman I used to be. Yes, he gets impatient. We’ve been trying to work through all the ups and downs. This is my journey. Unfortunately, it’s out of my control.”

NeNe Leakes Claps Back At ‘Violent’ Porsha Williams’ Claims That She Once Choked Out Kim Zolciak


Bossip.com:
During last night’s RHOA season finale viewers watched as the ladies attend a lavish Christmas party thrown by Phaedra Parks….where Kenya, a Jehovah’s Witness, showed up as The Grinch with her boyfriend Matt Jordan in tow…and NeNe and Kandi attempted to patch up their “oil and water” relationship.

And while the finale was rather lackluster, fans are now anticipating the RHOA reunion where they’ll apparently see “shocking footage” of that SECOND brawl that Porsha Williams got into this season. 

Viewers will also see NeNe call out Porsha for “putting her hands on people”, to which Porsha replies, “But didn’t you choke someone?”

Ooop!

But who’s Porsha accusing NeNe of catch fade with????

Kim Zolciak.

If you can remember, back in 2009 Entertainment Tonight reported that a 911 call was placed by Kim Zolciak who claimed that NeNe choked her during an argument.

A police report was filed but no charges were pressed.
 NeNe has since clapped back at Porsha’s choking claims and instead says that no one’s ever SEEN her be violent. “I’m not a saint but I’m no fool either,” said NeNe on Instagram.

Marisa Zanuck Files For Divorce From Producer Husband


NYDailyNews.com:
Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Marisa Zanuck says her marriage has reached its finale.

The glamorous real estate agent filed for divorce from husband Dean Zanuck on Feb. 25 in Los Angeles, court records confirm.

She is asking for joint custody of the couple's 13-year-old son Jack and 11-year-old daughter Darryl.

It was during Season 3 of "RHOBH" that Zanuck famously said her film producer husband wasn't really her "type."

Fellow cast member Brandi Glanville seized on the statement and accused Zanuck of being disrespectful.
Zanuck tried to clear things up on the blog she wrote for the hit Bravo show.

"Sometimes my mouth speaks before my brain thinks, but that's me. Dean actually finds this to be an endearing, amusing and bemusing quality of mine. But you would have to know us to know this," she wrote in January 2013.

Vicki Gunvalson’s New Boyfriend Jack Losey Accused Of Pushing Woman Into A Bonfire


RadarOnline.com:
Could unlucky-in-love Vicki Gunvalson be headed for another heartbreak? Her new boyfriend, Arizona construction superintendent Jack "Jackie" Losey was previously accused of aggravated assault after allegedly pushing a woman into a bonfire — and Radar has the photos of the horrifying injuries! *WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT*

Earlier this year Gunvalson debuted her new man on Instagram, writing "I'm happy tonight, country dancing, cowboy, Scottsdale," on a photo of her date. But does she know about the fall-out from this 1999 incident involving Losey?

He was arrested for aggravated assault that year after an altercation with a woman who claimed she was trying to stop him from attacking his then-wife, Sarah.

His accuser, Tammie Jordan, claimed Jack pushed her during an ensuing scuffle, and she fell into a bonfire, where she suffered painful first- and second-degree burns.

According to legal documents obtained by Radar, Losey turned himself into the police.

Julianne Wainstein Could Be LuAnn de Lesseps' Greatest Enemy


NYPost.com:
Wainstein grew up in Cresskill, NJ, before moving to Boca Raton, Fla., in high school. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in fashion merchandising and women’s wear.

She then worked as an event planner until 2008, when she married her nine-years-older hubby, whom she had known as a child growing up. (Wainstein’s father, who worked in the apparel business, was a mentor to Michael.)

“I couldn’t work anymore, because we were traveling all the time,” she says.

Back to the glamorous grind again, Wainstein — who never wore the same outfit twice while filming — admits she had some early jitters about joining “RHONY.”

“Everyone says, ‘Just be real, just be you,’ ” she says.

And while she loved working with the women, she and Bethenny Frankel “had our moments,” she admits.

“She has a strong personality . . . so you expect it,” says Wainstein, who crowned LuAnn de Lesseps the show’s biggest diva and newly divorced Ramona Singer the biggest flirt.

And how would she describe herself? The luckiest, says Wainstein.

“My whole life, everyone said, ‘You need your own reality show.’ But I never thought it would actually happen,” says Wainstein.

Ashley Darby Describes the Crazy Experience of 'Real Housewives of Potomac' Season 1


Patch.com:
From America's couch, Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchise looks like a terrifying champagne-fueled bloodbath for anyone unlucky enough to get caught in the crossfire. For "Real Housewives of the Potomac" star Ashley Darby, however, it's almost like a mental vacation.

"How often would I get the opportunity to do that, to talk like that, to really be my raw self?" Ashley said alongside her husband Michael Darby, also featured prominently on the show, which is now several episodes into its first season (filming wrapped last August). Ashley was Miss D.C. back in 2011, and Real Housewives is a welcome opportunity to ditch the "prim and proper" persona for a strong, stiff dose of the real, she says.

"Being a 'Real Housewife,' I can just be me," she said. "Now I can say whatever I want and I do, and it gets me into trouble, but it's just meant to be fun now."

That's not to say it's been easy. Ashley certainly has been to glamorous Potomac, home of the rich and famous, but her home is here in Arlington along with her "baby," the brand new Australian restaurant Oz at 2950 Clarendon Boulevard. The other women on the show not only are from Potomac, but they already knew each other. She didn't know anything about them when it came time to mix it up on camera.

"That all have some relationships, some rapport," Ashley said. "Then there's me. They don't tell me anything. I know nothing. They plop me down in a circle."

She shakes her head, recalling the intense experience.

"Woo!" she lets out. "They are very independent, very boisterous and certainly don't hold back anything. So I just had to learn to hold my own."

Phaedra Parks On Taking Her Sons To Visit Apollo Nida In Prison


DesignNTrend.com:
The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks has opened up about bringing her two kids to visit their dad, Apollo Nida, in prison.

After doing some soul-searching and learning that her estranged husband was moved to a "more child-friendly" prison, Parks finally took Dylan and Ayden to see their dad in prison on last Sunday's episode of the hit Bravo series.


Although the boys were less enthusiastic about seeing their father than Parks had expected, she said that she doesn't have any regrets.

"The visit went well and I do not have any regrets," Parks told Bravotv.com. "My goal has always been to facilitate a positive relationship between Apollo and our sons. I am happy that we were able to make the trip and were allowed to visit."

"My first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our children," she said of what was going through her mind a few days leading up to their visit. "As I have voiced on many occasions, my primary concern about the visit was how it would impact our sons. I know how that life experiences shape a child's perspective of the world; so my thoughts were all based on the possible negative impacts to our sons. I was praying for their spiritual covering and the wisdom to respond to any questions they may have during and after the visit."

Kathryn Edwards Insists She Wasn't Tipsy At Erika Girardi's Dinner


SheKnows.com:
RHOBH's Kathryn Edwards insists she is not the bad guy Erika Girardi has made her out to be, and she is defending herself in a new Bravo blog.

Girardi threw Edwards under the bus when Lisa Vanderpump confronted her about the "web" and "sniper" comments, rather than talking it out with Vanderpump — and Edwards has a major problem with that.

"What you didn't see was more than half of the reason I was so animated and brash. We talked about the web comment in detail and my point was more about why Erika felt the need to warn me about Lisa VDP," Edwards wrote on her Bravo blog.

ADVERTISING
"Here is the person of distrust, Lisa VDP, sitting right in front of Erika... talk to LVP, speak your mind. You think she's dangerous like a 'sniper,' you felt the need to warn me about her. Lisa VDP asked her why she said it and rather than addressing Lisa, Erika turned to me with it and that's when it started. I wasn't tipsy, I was passionate about what was being said and being truthful to my feelings."

Edwards also addressed the drama caused by her comment about Lisa Rinna having an eating disorder, insisting it was a joke but apologizing anyway.

"When I teased Lisa Rinna about not eating, it was all in fun," she explained. "I do not think for one second that she has an eating disorder of any kind. She has an absolutely amazing body and has always been in phenomenal shape. Don't forget that I've known her for many years, we used to workout [sic] together. If I really thought that she had issues, I sure as hell wouldn't tease her. It was a joke, and I wasn't aware that it was such a hot spot for her because of Kim Richards. I know now."
