Shannon Beador Calls Kelly Dodd's Near Divorce 'Wacko'


USAToday.com:
Foreman Beador hits hard.

On Monday's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Meghan King Edmonds had Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and the newest cast member, Kelly Dodd, over to her house to help reno her kitchen.

After a couple slugs of a rubber hammer, the ladies sat down to eat, and a teary-eyed Tamra talked about her painful divorce from Simon Barney. Kelly also opened up about her own relationship strife.

"I have a husband similar to yours," Kelly said. "We went through a divorce for two years. He'd rather have given the money to the lawyers than to give it to me and my daughter."

The women were shocked when Kelly revealed she was talking about her current husband, Michael.

"Before I got married Michael was perfect," Kelly confessed to the cameras. "And then when we got married, he became like Hitler. He was a control freak. I felt like he was controlling every aspect of my life and then we filed for divorce, but we weren't legally divorced."

The tumultuous relationship was just a little too much for Shannon.

Shannon, who joined the reality show in season 9, has been known to offend her castmates with her "judgy" eyes.

Shannon thought Kelly rocked the boat during their first meeting at Heather Dubrow's yacht party on the premiere. When Kelly joked that USC, the school Shannon repped on what appeared to be her phone case, stood for the University of Spoiled Children, Mrs. Beador was rubbed the wrong way — not in the healing Dr. Moon way.

Perhaps that's why she didn't hold back when she evaluated Kelly's relationship.

"That's just... wacko," she said.

And when Kelly revealed a 730 psychiatric evaluation (sometimes conducted when determining custody) showed that her husband had a narcissistic personality disorder, the outspoken Tamra couldn't resist interjecting her two cents in front of the cameras.

“Hi, this is my husband, and I had to have a 730 evaluation done on him because he’s crazy, but I’m staying with him. What?!”

Tamra Judge Explains Why She Has No Belly Button


FOXNews.com:
“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge has no belly button, and she explained why in detail on “Watch What Happens Live” and Instagram on Monday.
Judge said she felt the need to explain after photos of her showing off her toned tummy were causing fans to ask questions.

“... 3 years ago, I was home alone and experienced excruciating pain,” she wrote on Instagram. “I called [Dr. Terry Dubrow] immediately and he told me to call 911. Terry stayed on the phone with me while the paramedics took me to the hospital. He also communicated with the on call surgeon . My stomach wall had burst due to gastric hernia . 5 hours of surgery this is what i was left with.”

Judge shared a graphic photo of her stomach with a visible gash down the middle. She thanked her co-star Dubrow for his help during her ordeal. 

She continued, “Yep I have a [scar] and a screwed up belly button but my intestines where saved . Thank you [Dubrow] for being that Doctor that cared and took the time. If you need a new case for [E!’s ‘Botched’] you got my digits.” 

Judge has been seen on the “Real Housewives” perfecting her body to participate in fitness competitions.

Kenya Moore Talks Cooking Show Meltdown Rumors and Vivica A. Fox


ESSENCE.com:
Rumors swirled this week that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore flew into a fit while filming for Food Network. Allegedly, Moore was cast in the latest edition of The Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition and lost it when she was eliminated in the first episode. But, Moore says the rumors are false.

In an interview with Rolling Out, Moore denied the allegations, saying, "Over some cooking, hell no! I think people just love to put out crazy stories because people will believe them so they can get clicks … I think it’s just a little publicity stunt. … All the cast were the best."

Apparently, there are even plans for Moore to have her own cooking show on Food Network, "I have no idea where that story would come from. … The producers are talking to me about me doing my own cooking show."

Moore also talked about her ongoing feud with Vivica A. Fox, who added fuel to the fire when she appeared on The Wendy Williams Show. Fox referred to Moore as a "toxic trick," and stated that she hasn't spoken to Moore since Celebrity Apprentice. "I’m too busy having a legitimate career and making sure people get paid." Moore fired back at Fox, taking a dig at her plans for a reality show about male strippers, saying, "Why is she doing a reality show of her own? Worry about how you’re gonna fix your face."

Tamra Judge Says Vicki Gunvalson 'Needs a Flea Collar' After Brooks Ayers Relationship


People.com:
The Real Housewives of Orange County stars' claws are coming out.

Tamra Judge stopped by Jenny McCarthy's Dirty, Sexy, Funny SiriusXM show on Monday, and she did not hold back about her feelings towards her costar Vicki Gunvalson.

"You know what, I took her back this year, accepted her apology – well, her half-assed apology – forgave the past and tried to move on, only to get burned again," said Judge, 48. "She was behind my back with a machete this time."

Judge went on to slam Gunvalson, 54, for her contentious relationship with ex Brooks Ayers, whose cancer scandal created major drama last season when he admitted to forging medical records.

"Well, I've given up on trying to keep away from Brooks," Judge said. "I now think that they're soul mates. They're a match made in heaven."

Of Gunvalson's tendencies to return to Ayers despite the drama, Judge said she couldn't understand it.

"You know what, there were a lot of years where I wanted somebody in my life, but you don't want a douchebag. Like if somebody's douchey, ew, that's a turnoff," she said. "It's not attractive to me. I can't buy that."

Added Judge, "You hang out with dogs, you get fleas. Maybe she needs a flea collar."

As for whether her relationship with Gunvalson could be salvaged, Judge made it pretty clear things didn't look too promising.

"That's where I'm at – I'm burned," she said. "I said: 'You know what, one more thing. One more thing, and I'm done. I'm done.' "

Heather Dubrow: “I Like To Think Of Myself As The Greek Chorus”


HuffPo.com:
Every franchise of Bravo’s “Real Housewife” has that one woman who seems be somewhat of a cross between the moral high ground and narrator of sorts; for the “Orange County” franchise, Heather Dubrow fills that role to the hilt. Between juggling her children, her husband Terry, numerous businesses, along with all of the drama with the other ladies, Dubrow seems to be navigating the waters of this hit franchise just fine. She took a break to chat with us about the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County”, her true feelings on last year’s “Brooks-Gate” and what it takes to keep your marriage strong while spending so much of your life in front of the cameras. 
Heather thanks for taking the time to chat with me, between premiering the next season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and finishing your spectacular new home, I am thrilled you found the time! Thank you! Believe it or not, we’re still not moved in. We’ve waited this long, and we are four months over where I thought we would be, but at this point I just want it to be perfect. You order things, something is wrong, something is broken, you may have to change around a few things, but I’m so excited with how it’s turning out .The best part is that I haven’t let Terry see the house in a month; I think since the furniture started coming in. I want to give him a big splashy reveal! 
What do you think is your favorite room in the house that you have absolutely fallen in love with? Oh wow, there are so many fun rooms! I think it would have to be the laundry room; It’s so cool. I love the laundry room, the closets, our kitchen, our family room. I designed every square inch of this house and I’m so proud of what I did. 
Your house is almost another “Housewife” to add to the mix isn’t it? You know, it definitely is another character I think. 
So this season is definitely a departure, especially after it got ultra-dark with Brooks and Vicki last season. The addition of Kelly will also definitely change things in so many ways I think. In terms of “Brooks-gate”, it almost felt like you were trying to see the best in Vicki despite what was going on. You know, I was. I think I was trying to give her “an out” many times. We were at a party and I would always ask her if she needed anything, if she needed help, anything at all. I said, and I always will say, I think she was duped, but at some point she knew. I just think it was too far gone for her and she didn’t know how to get out. I don’t know if that’s the truth, but that’s what I think the truth is.
By the end of the season and everything that had happened with Brooks, and then him showing false documents to E! New, at some point, we all went “Come On”! it was just too much. The thing with Vicki is that, while I love Vicki, she just has a hard time being accountable for things she has done. 
As the “O.G. of the O.C.” Vicki consistently seems to have an issue with the new girls joining the cast, be it Lizzie, Gretchen or Alexis. Shannon and yourself have been rare exceptions. Kelly seems to be an exception as well, which is exactly what Vicki seems to need right now though. She really did need a friend, she was very isolated from everyone. I had spoken with her a few times as Tamra had, so it’s not like we weren’t in contact with her. It was a very difficult relationship to try and repair and figure out how we were going to move forward. It’s very difficult when you know that someone has done something so bad, how do you move forward without an acknowledgement. I mean, if Vicki had ever once said “hey listen, i didn’t mean for this to affect you” we all would have moved on. All we got was the “Gretchen Apology”.
It seems that Vicki is kind of all thumbs when it comes to choosing men. Conversely, you have managed to juggle your children, the Housewives, your husband Terry’s show “Botched” along with your skin care line Consult Beaute. How do you think you manage to keep everything going in such a positive direction? You know it’s funny, Terry and I just celebrated what we thought was our eighteenth wedding anniversary, even though it was only our seventeenth; It must have just felt like eighteen. We have been together as a couple almost twenty years, and just like any other couple, we have our ebbs and flows. We bicker, but we never really fight about anything big like money. The only thing we’ve ever fought about is the show. Our first couple of years on the show was very difficult for me, because I was going from scripted to unscripted. I was going from being at home with my kids to doing this.
Terry thought it was all hilarious, he would make jokes at my expense, because he didn’t care, he was a doctor. For me, I was very hung up wondering how this was going to look and I had a really hard time releasing myself. So he and I would argue about the show. That’s why I think in the first few seasons it looked like we were really fighting, because that was all we fought about. Finally I thought to myself “ok, I can do this” Also, I actually became friends with everyone, and developed real relationships with the girls. I mean, I was kind of plucked from obscurity and placed in this group. For me, it went from a very unreal situation to a very real one, and then we stopped fighting about it.

Teresa Giudice Sends Love to Imprisoned Husband Joe in Sweet New Instagram Message


People.com:
Teresa Giudice is missing her "Juicy Joe."

The 44-year-old reality star posted a photo to Instagram on Wednesday of her and husband Joe Giudice, who is currently serving a 41-month prison sentence for fraud.

"Can't wait to do yoga again with my Juicy Joe," Teresa, who visited Joe in prison last month, captioned the shot. "Love him."

She added a heart emoji afterwards. 


Teresa has a new love for yoga and previously told PEOPLE she plans on becoming an accredited yoga instructor after practicing it during her nearly yearlong stint in prison.

"I love yoga," she explained. "It really changed my life. It really got me through this whole ordeal – it really did – being there and everything. I can't live without it now."

"I want to come out with my own yoga DVD tape, my own yoga line. If you put out what you want, sometimes you get it. Never say, 'I can't do that,' because then you're already bringing yourself down," she continued.

Shannon Beador: I've Forgiven Vicki Gunvalson, But...


EOnline.com:
The new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County has only just begun, but already the drama is off the charts—both on camera and off.

While the premiere episode of season 11 saw Vicki Gunvalson attempting to begin her apology tour after last season's debacle with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers and his cancer claims left her on the outs with just about every other cast member—including longtime bestie Tamra Judge—social media became a battlefield between the Bravolebrities after Vicki sat down with E! News' Melanie Bromley to discuss her co-stars. Turns out that Tamra didn't take too kindly to what Vicki had to say about her, leading to a war of words that's got us worried about just how ugly season 11 will be.

E! News caught up with Vicki's co-stars Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, and new Wife on the block Kelly Dodd at the premiere of Adventures in Babysitting, the 100th Disney Channel original movie, to get their take on the drama and see where they stand with the OG of the OC. Spoiler alert: It doesn't look good.

"I feel like there's been so much drama in social media from a lot of the cast members and we've only had one episode aired, which is a little bit shocking," Heather told us before teasing the season to come. "I will tell you that it's going to be really interesting how this season plays on."

Shannon, of course, didn't mince words when it came to Vicki. "I don't want a friendship with her," she said flat out. "I've forgiven, but I don't want to be her friend."

It wasn't all bad news for Vicki though. Looks like Kelly has gone from burgeoning friend in the season premiere to full-on ally by season's end, as she told us, "I just talked to her just a second ago about how Tamra said she bashed her, but I don't think that's true...I hope they can get through their drama and become friends again." We've got a feeling that's not happening any time soon.
Here's hoping that Vicki doesn't want a friendship with Shannon either. I mean, this party pooper can forgive and take back her lying, cheating husband, but can't be friends with Vicki again?!? Hypocrite much?

Bethenny Frankel Had Fibroids Surgery, Gives Health Update


EOnline.com:
What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

After watching a sneak peek for the 13th episode of season, Bethenny said she was embarrassed over getting teary on camera after her pre-op appointment.

"It just feels embarrassing," she told Andy.

"It's a scary thing to go into," Veep star Matt Walsh told her.

"I know, but I don't know, now I feel like it's kind of common. I don't know, I just feel embarrassed. I shouldn't feel embarrassed, people were saying it's so great that you're talking about it and it definitely is. It was serious and I was scared. I just don't have that much familiarity with surgery and things like that and I didn't really know anything about it," she conceded.

After visiting the doctor with Dorinda Medley, Bethenny revealed her doctor told her she had lost 10 percent of her blood due to fibroids in her uterus and surgery would be required to remove them. She had the surgery May 20 and was hospitalized for three days.

"I've been treating myself really healthfully since then and I recovered pretty well," she said on Watch What Happens Live. "I have a scar and I think I'm OK now."

Her next check up is Thursday, June 23.

Jules Wainstein May Be Getting Dumped From ‘Real Housewives of New York City’


USWeekly.com:
Jules Wainstein may have just been dumped … again.

A source reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly that the Real Housewives of New York City season 8 rookie, 35, won’t appear in season 9. “Bravo isn't asking Jules back," the insider says.

The news comes a week after reports revealed June 15 that Jules’ husband of eight years, Michael, 44, filed for divorce. Since then, the two have been hurling nasty accusations at each other.
 
Jules' rep accused venture capitalist Michael of infidelity, claiming he cheated with one of the reality personality's friends. Then, Michael's attorney claimed Jules physically attacked her husband in 2012.

Though the vicious back-and-forth might seem like perfect fodder for reality TV, the source claims it wasn't enough to keep Jules around for another season. Despite opening up about her eating disorder and chaotic home life, says the pal, "she isn't resonating with viewers."

And with costar Ramona Singer's season 7 split from her husband of 22 years, Mario Singer, still a leading story line, the insider explains, "producers don't want another divorced woman."
I've watched every episode of 'RHONY' this year and Wainstein hasn't resonated much with me either. Wonder if Wainstein's possible exit could open the door for JIll Zarin coming back?

Amber Marchese Reveals Lyme Disease Diagnosis


USmagazine.com:
From one battle to the next. Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Amber Marchese — who has been fighting her second round of breast cancer since April 2015 — revealed in a new interview that she has been diagnosed with Lyme disease.


“I was officially diagnosed last week,” the reality star, 38, told Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday, June 21. "About two weeks ago, I had flulike symptoms which included a low-grade fever, headache, aches, chills, joint pain and awful neck pain."

When Marchese wrote about her condition on social media, a friend told her that she should get checked for Lyme disease: “She shared with me her struggles with Lyme disease, and we shared many of the same symptoms.”

Luckily, the former Bravolebrity caught the illness in its early stages and won’t have to undergo treatment as she continues to undergo chemotherapy. “But we are going to monitor it,” she assured ET.
 

Marchese, who is married to husband James Marchese, with whom she shares two kids, survived breast cancer in 2009 and was rediagnosed last year. Despite her recent health setbacks, the New Jersey resident has maintained a positive outlook on life.

"I am coping by getting my butt to the gym and pushing myself as hard as I can!” she said of dealing with her Lyme discovery. “I enjoy every day as a blessing and focus on my family and friends."

Luann de Lesseps Has a Plan to Avoid the Real Housewives Divorce Curse


EOnline.com:

Luann de Lesseps has seen it all on the Real Housewives.  
From co-stars exchanging vows in front of cameras to couples dropping the "divorce" word on national television, the Bravo reality star knows that having and then maintaining a successful marriage under the public eye can be difficult.  
But as the Real Housewives of New York City star prepares for her New Year's Eve wedding to fiancĂ© Tom D'Agostino, the Big Apple veteran is setting boundaries as to what the public can and cannot see.  
"I adore Tom and I want to be happy. I don't want to have the Housewives curse so I don't think that's something I'm willing to do," Luann shared with E! News when asked about a possible televised wedding. "I think there's a lot to be learned from Housewives wedding specials. I think the only person who has been able to pull it off is Kim Zolciak-Biermann."  
She continued, "I think your husband needs to really be into it. The person or partner you're going to be with really needs to be in it and you know, Tom is a very private person and I respect that."

New 'OC Housewife' Kelly Dodd: “Sometimes I Say Things Without Thinking That Get Me Into Trouble”!


HuffPo.com:
Every city of the “Real Housewife” can always use a refresh and a jolt of energy. Kelly Dodd has landed in the O.C. and this lady is a virtual lightning bolt for “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (premiering June 20th on Bravo, check local listings). We chatted with her about being the newest lady on the block, her opinions on her fellow cast members, and what it’s like to have the cameras watching her virtually all the time.

Kelly, new Housewives historically are a mixed bag. I have a feeling that, based on what I have seen so far, you are going to be one of our favorites. Oh thank you! 
How does it feel to be the official new “Real Housewife” in the O.C.? It feels great. It’s been such a great experience and a really fun experience. It’s awesome and I have enjoyed myself through the whole season. I love it! 
Were you a fan of the show before being cast? I watched it more when it was more of the beginning, the Cota De Caza scene. Once they started fighting...I really liked the relationships, the family, the teenagers, the parents. All the fighting stuff, I really wanted them to get back to the women and the family. I kind of stopped watching then, but when it would be on I would watch it, just never from the beginning to the end. I would see it because I would have Bravo on, I just didn’t follow it strictly. 
Was it very different going from being a regular wife and mom to suddenly having cameras following you to everything, from small events to the biggest events? You know, actually it seemed very natural. At first it was weird, in the beginning. I felt very natural since I built relationships with the camera people and the production team. It seemed very natural and not very weird. They are in here quite a bit, but they are great and such awesome people. 
 
They say one of the keys to being a great Housewife is to not write your own narrative and to just simply be yourself. Do you think, looking back, you were truly yourself? I think I was my real authentic self, I feel like the other women aren’t, at least a couple of them-Shannon and Heather-are fake.

Joshua Waring, Son of Lauri Peterson, Suspected of Attempted Murder


USWeekly.com:
Joshua Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, has been arrested for suspicion of attempted murder, Us Weekly can confirm. 

Waring, 27, shot a 35-year-old man in the torso around 2:30 a.m. in Costa Mesa, California, on Monday, June 20.

"Apparently there had been a previous confrontation between [Waring] and the occupants of that residence earlier, and he had returned," Costa Mesa police lieutenant Paul Beckman said in a statement via the Los Angeles Times.

Waring wasn't handcuffed until several hours later, after a car chase with police. He crashed while driving a stolen SUV and tried to run away before authorities booked him. According to a Costa Mesa police press release, Waring was initially spotted by an Orange County Sheriff's helicopter and "surrendered" at the scene. The gun used hasn't been found yet. 

The unidentified victim, meanwhile, was taken to Orange County Global Medical Center and is expected to survive, according to Costa Mesa Fire Department.

Stephanie Hollman: 'It Was Scary' Filming with LeeAnne Locken


FOXNews.com:
“Real Housewives of Dallas” star Stephanie Hollman said it wasn’t easy filming with co-star LeeAnne Locken, who revealed during Sunday’s reunion special on Bravo that she is in anger management therapy.

“I think she needs anger management counseling, so I am actually proud of her for that because if you know better, you do better,” Hollman told FOX411 on Monday. “Maybe this season was a way to look at herself and say ‘I need help.’ I’m hoping she can change and seek help in therapy. It was honestly a really hard year. It was a scary year dealing with her at times.”

Hollman, who is closest to Brandi Redmond on the show, revealed what she really thinks of Locken .
“I think she is only comfortable if she has power and I felt like that the entire season,” she said. “If she is in control and has power and then everyone is agreeing with her, she is easy. But the moment she feels so doesn't have control, it’s like she’s trying to get you in line. And I feel like that is what she was trying to do to me. She wanted to make sure she was the alpha at all times.”

The one thing from the reunion special that Hollman didn’t like was the amount of time it took Locken to apologize to fellow co-star Cary Deuber for their past conflicts.

“The only thing I did not like was I felt it took her a long time to apologize. I felt she was making excuses of her behavior instead of just owning it and saying ‘you are right I shouldn’t have done that.’”

Hollman charged that Locken is manipulative.

“I think she has been through a lot when she was younger, and I think the only way she feels safe is if she is in control. I do think she bullies and manipulates to get her way a lot.”

Meghan King Edmonds Is Going To Be A Mom To A Baby Girl


People.com:
Meghan King Edmonds is going to be a mom!

The Real Housewives of Orange County star and her husband Jim are expecting a daughter, Edmonds tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I’m so over the moon, I couldn’t believe it the first time I peed on a stick and I saw that little line kind of get a little darker,” she says.

“I’ve always dreamed of this, but it’s still such a miracle. I can’t even describe the feeling.”

This is the first child for Edmonds, though she’s had plenty of practice as stepmom to husband Jim’s two children from his previous marriage.

Now four months along, the mom-to-be says she’s feeling good and has lots of energy, but her road to motherhood wasn’t easy.

“We went through IVF and fortunately we got pregnant the first time,” Edmonds says, adding she didn’t have fertility issues, but that her husband underwent a vasectomy and froze his sperm.

“It was just such a long process with the IVF, step by step by step with so much information.”

New 'Real Housewives' Star Siggy Flicker: 'I Did 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey Because I Didn’t Like The Way Jersey was Being Portrayed'


CourierPostOnline.com:
One of the new cast members of Bravo's hit reality show, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," has South Jersey ties.

Fans of the show will see new cast member Siggy Flicker when the seventh season premieres at 8 p.m. July 10 on Bravo.

Flicker, a graduate of Cherry Hill West, is a relationship expert, professional matchmaker and author.
While she is an expert at handing out love advice, she's no stranger to television. In 2011, she starred in the VH1 series "Why Am I Still Single?!" where she gave dating lessons to clients looking for love. For the past five years, she's been a featured guest on "Good Morning America," "Dr. Phil," "Wendy Williams" and others.

This time around, she's making a point to represent New Jersey the right way with what she calls a "loud, outspoken, big personality."

"I did 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' for one reason only," Flicker told Courier-Post. "I didn’t like the way Jersey was being portrayed and I am very proud to be a Jersey girl."

Flicker was born in Israel but spent most of her childhood in Cherry Hill, living in different apartment complexes on Cooper Landing Road before attending college at Monmouth University. She has fond memories of having breakfast at Ponzio's Diner and playing softball with friends from her high school.

"Cherry Hill was the most beautiful town to grow up in," Flicker said.

Filming wrapped in May and while mum's the word on any details of the show, Flicker says fans can expect a lot of heart, soul and the obvious drama.

"The show has some great girls."

Cary Deuber Sets the Record Straight on Her Marriage


Yahoo.com:
After a season of accusations and allegations about how they first got together, Real Housewives of Dallas stars Mark and Cary Deuber are setting the record straight with ET.

"Some people tried to imply that Cary was a homewrecker, and she stole her husband, and that's not how things went down at all," Mark says.

Co-star LeeAnne Locken seemed to imply multiple times throughout the Bravo series' first season that Cary and Mark first got romantic while Mark was still married. The couple has worked together for years -- Mark is a plastic surgeon, while Cary is his first assistant and nurse. 

"We've actually known each other for 15 or 16 years," Mark explains. "I was a resident, and she was a young nurse at the hospital … Then, I had been in practice about three or four years, and she came to work for me. The reason she did that is because I was doing a lot of complex types of reconstructive surgery that required an operative assistant."

"Which is why I wanted to work for him," Cary explains. "Not because I wanted to sleep with him!"

The couple says over the years, they became close friends, as colleagues do. Mark and his family even attended Cary's second wedding, a marriage Cary confesses lasted "a skinny minute."

"I don't want to trash my first marriage or my ex-wife," Mark shares, "but suffice it to say, I was not in a good place for a long time in my marriage. I think I gained a lot of weight, I drank a lot. I think I was just not taking care of myself at all ... I started taking care of myself, and I started losing weight, and I was kind of checked out on my marriage."

LeeAnne involved her friend, Heidi Dillon, in the Cary-Mark rumor mill. In one episode, Heidi scoffed, "Most of the women in Dallas got their rich husbands because, at one point, they were on their knees under his desk, right? That's what I know of Cary."

"It's certainly been implied that we were sneaking around," Mark responds. "I mean, a lot of what was said was true: we did work together, and we did wind up getting together, and we're married now. And you know what? Things like that happen. We did not sneak around and have an affair."

"We definitely got together quickly after he got separated," Cary admits. "But there was a line drawn."

Jules Wainstein Allegedly ‘Brutalized’ Her Husband Michael


PageSix.com:
Cops reportedly “swarmed” the Manhattan home of “Real Housewife” Julianne Wainstein recently — but an attorney for her husband Michael Wainstein says that he’s the victim.

On Thursday, the Daily Mail reported an NYPD “officer was seen leaving [the couple’s] apartment carrying a written statement, with the words ‘threatening me . . . going to ruin my life’ easily legible.”

But Michael’s attorney Mark Jay Heller said it’s Michael who’s been a past victim of his statuesque and beautiful wife, Julianne. “She has brutalized him, poor guy — a foot shorter than her — and he is not going to take it anymore.” He complimented Michael — who stands well below his wife in pictures of the pair — as “diminutive but brave.”

A rep for Julianne commented when asked about any alleged abuse, “The truth will prevail.”

Meanwhile, Heller said of the Thursday incident, “At about 8 a.m. . . . his wife called the police to come to the home and she told the officers that he was talking too loud. They looked at her and said, ‘That’s no reason to call the police.’”

He previously claimed, “She regularly calls the police with false allegations, and the police arrive and find there was no incident . . . That’s a tactic that some women use.”

Julianne’s rep has called Heller’s remarks about the “false allegations” “utterly disgusting.”

An NYPD rep said there was no record of a 911 call at the address Thursday morning.

Reports have said Michael filed for divorce in May after he was “busted” for cheating. Julianne’s rep confirmed the adultery accusation and said that Julianne was “blindsided,” but “she’s very strong.”

Vicki Gunvalson Almost Didn't Return to Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 11


EOnline.com:
The Real Housewives of Orange County without Vicki Gunvalson?

It seems almost inconceivable that the OG of the OC would ever walk away from the the franchise she helped create 10 years and 11 seasons ago, but after the rough time she had filming season 10, she wasn't so sure she was ready to step back into the lions den for another go round. Sitting down with E! News' Melanie Bromley, Vicki admitted that the alienation and betrayal she felt from her co-stars in response to her then-boyfriend Brooks Ayers fake cancer claims nearly did her in.

"I didn't [think I'd return.] I didn't think I had the strength," she revealed, before adding, "But you know what, my story wasn't finished. I'm not gonna end as a victim."

While the idea of returning wasn't ideal, less ideal was allowing the ladies to talk about her and Brooks on camera and not be there to defend herself.  "I'm not going to let these women have the last say-so in what they believe the truth was," she said. "I know my truth."

Stepping back into the arena with frenemies Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, and Meghan King Edmond was awkward at first, Vicki said, but the season turned around for her once she met new cast mate Kelly Dodd. Initially introduced to the ladies as Meghan's friend, it seems Kelly bonded with Vicki pretty darn quick. "I think what we're gonna see this season is it definitely starts off very awkward, but the best part of this season is we have a new cast member," Vicki said about her new friend. "She bring a whole lot of opinions and I love her. We have a great relationship."

Kelly Bensimon on Her Struggles with Postpartum Depression: ‘I Was Petrified’


People.com:
The celebrity moms who participate in PEOPLE’s Mom Talk series aren’t afraid to tackle some hard-hitting subjects, and the newest edition is no exception.

“I had postpartum really bad [with my first child],” Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Killoren Bensimon, 48, shares. “I couldn’t drive, I had anxiety, I didn’t want to be by myself.”

Killoren Bensimon — whose two daughters, Sea Louise and Thaddeus Ann, are now in their teens — also confesses she didn’t have the support she wishes she could’ve had.

“My ex-husband had just left to go traveling, and I was with this child by myself,” she says. “I was so young and none of my friends had kids, and I just … I was petrified.”

“It was on and off for like two years,” Killoren Bensimon replies candidly when popular YouTuber and mom of six Mindy McKnight, 37, asks how long her postpartum depression lasted.

She also adds that on top of the depression she felt after her first daughter’s birth, she was physically sick during her pregnancy, and that she tried a patch that doctors said would help balance out her hormones.

“That was the worst,” she says of her experience, adding, “Postpartum is really, really horrible.”

Andy Cohen Reveals ‘Real Housewives: All Stars’ Will Happen Eventually


ETOnline.com:
“Go to sleep! Go to sleep!”


Bethenny Frankel shouted those infamous words at Kelly Bensimon on The Real Housewives of New York back in 2010 on a vacation known to fans as “Scary Island.”

Now, picture Bethenny doing that to a Housewives star from another city, say Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville or New Jersey’s Danielle Staub. Well, king of the Housewives, Andy Cohen, tells ET executive producer Brad Bessey it could happen.

“You know what? We will do Real Housewives: All Stars when the show is just about out of gas,” Cohen reveals. “So right now we had our second highest season of Beverly Hills, New York’s highest ratings since 2012, and Orange County, last season had it's highest rated season in 10 seasons.”

“So, we are nowhere near the point where we need to put eight of them on an island,” Cohen jokes, adding that a Below Deck-style boat adventure is a possibility, too. 
 
“We will, and I can't wait to do it,” Cohen adds. “But it's going to be at the end of the line … We'll do it at the end. It's something that we don't waste now. We want to save it for later.”

Yolanda Hadid Is Leaving ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’: Didn't Want To Be Demoted To 'Friend of the Housewives'


TMZ.com:
Yolanda Foster didn't want to be treated like a second class citizen on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' -- and decided to leave the show rather than be demoted from the main cast ... TMZ has learned. 

Foster announced she was leaving the show in an Instagram statement -- and implied that she was fired. 

But our production sources say that's not exactly the case ... telling us Yolanda was offered a role as a "friend of the cast" -- which would give her more free time to address her health issues. 

We're told Yolanda saw the move as a demotion -- since she was a full-fledged cast member in the past few seasons -- and refused to take a lesser role. 

Our sources say Bravo isn't bitter about the split -- and has let Yolanda know she is still welcome to appear on future episodes ... as a friend.

Kelly Dodd Officially Joins the Cast of 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'


Enstarz.com:
Kelly Dodd has officially joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Although a few ladies were rumored to be joining the show for season 11, Dodd has since been confirmed as the only new housewife being added to the show.

"The show's returning stars are Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador and Meghan King Edmonds," Us Weekly confirmed on Monday, and "the newest Housewife is Kelly Dodd, who is best friends with King and has a 9-year-old daughter, Jolie, with husband Michael."

While the magazine claimed Dodd was King's best friend, it's hard to say how close they actually are as Dodd doesn't appear to have shared any photos of herself and King on Instagram or Facebook. She has however, interacted with both Heather Dubrow and Lizzie Rovsek, on Instagram in recent weeks.

The first reports of Dodd's addition to the show began surfacing in March. At the time, Us Weekly broke news of her possible role on season 11.

"Producers have added Corona Del Mar, California, resident Kelly Meza-Dodd to the Real Housewives of Orange County cast," a source close to the cast revealed.

Dodd "is married to Michael Dodd and they share one child together," the magazine added. "Dodd is the COO of Kiss Me Mirrors, a company based out of Newport Beach, California, and her husband, 58, was formerly president of LeapFrog Enterprises Inc."

Around the time news of Dodd's addition to the show was revealed, she made an appearance at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood, Calif. where she made a complete fool of herself for the cameras.

After being asked if she liked black guys, Dodd told TMZ, "I don't like black guys, I don't even know any black guys."

She then went on to say that she didn't care about her husband and that she had her M.B.A., which she revealed stood for "married but available."

After the footage was released, Dodd apologized for her behavior, telling the outlet, "I am truly embarrassed. There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone. That video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly."

LeeAnne Locken Blasts Cary Deuber in Explosive Argument: 'I Don't Like the Evil Inside of You'


People.com:
If you thought things were about to cool down after last week's Real Housewives of Dallas blowout, think again.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Monday's season finale, LeeAnne Locken and Tiffany Hendra decide to confront Marie Reyes – again – about leaking the now-infamous story of Locken pooping in a car to the rest of the girls, except this time, Cary Deuber decides to come to Reyes' defense.

"I gave you the opportunity to admit that you told the story," Hendra tells Reyes. "Who could have told the story to Taylor? There were only three of us in the car!"

Reyes adamantly denies it was her, and Hendra grows increasingly frustrated. 


"You're f---ing lying!" she says.

Meanwhile, Locken thinks this isn't the time or place to settle their issues.

"Sitting down with Tiffany and Marie and hashing out any of this here is the last thing I want to do," she tells the camera. "I get that Tiffany is still pissed for me, but we're not going to open [the other girls'] eyes like this."

At the same time, Deuber and Brandi Redmond are watching the argument unfold from across the room, shaking their heads.

"Who stands up for themselves with LeeAnne?" Deuber asks. "Nobody, 'cause she's a bully, and they're scared of her. I'm not scared of her."

Deuber then makes her way over to the three other women and interrupts, asking to chat with Locken one-on-one, but that little sit-down quickly descends to chaos.

"I get that you don't approve of how I live or who I am," Locken starts.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon Opens Up about Her Two-Year Battle with Postpartum Depression


DailyMail.com:
Kelly Bensimon has revealed that her two-year struggle with postpartum depression left her so anxiety-ridden that she was terrified to be left alone with her daughter.

The 48-year-old, who gave birth to her first child Sea Louise in 1998, explained in the newest installment of People Mom Talk that she struggled with postpartum depression on and off for two years until she became pregnant with her second daughter, Thaddeus Ann, who was born in 2000. 

'I had postpartum really badly — like really bad,' she recalled. 'I mean I couldn't drive. I had so much anxiety. I didn't want to be by myself.'

The former Real Housewives of New York star went on to say her struggle was exacerbated by the absence of her then-husband, renowned fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon. 

Kelly was the third wife of the famous photographer, who was also the first husband of supermodel Elle Macpherson. The former couple divorced in 2007 after ten years of marriage.

'Like I literally gave birth to a child and my ex-husband just left and went traveling and I was this child by myself,' she said. 'I was so young, and none of my friends had kids. 

'I was petrified. I loved her so much but I was literally petrified. I couldn't drive. It was really, really bad.'

Brandi Glanville Weighs In On Whether or Not Yolanda Hadid Will Return to 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'


People.com:
Will Yolanda Hadid return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season?

"She's deciding whether or not to come back to Housewives," Hadid's friend and former RHOBH costar, Brandi Glanville, told PEOPLE while promoting her new E! series, Famously Single.

Continued Glanville, 43: "And I was like, 'Girl, you need to do it because we want to see you get better, we WANT TO see you come out through this divorce, and show people that, even through divorce, you're okay. You can be in your 50s and be hot as f---.'"

Glanville’s comments come after reports emerged claiming that Bravo was not inviting Hadid – who has been on RHOBH since season 3 – back for season 7.


In January, Hadid, 52, filed for divorce from David Foster, 66, after four years of marriage and nine years together. The former model was previously married to Mohamed Hadid from 1994–2000. She and Mohamed are parents to three children together: daughters Gigi, 21, Bella, 19, and son Anwar, 16.  

She is poised to release a memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease, which will include intimate details of her crusade to find a cure for the disease.

"I am determined to find a cure affordable for all," Hadid told PEOPLE exclusively of the book. "And it has been my dream to write a book to share all the treatments, knowledge, and spiritual growth I have acquired these past five years. As I've said previously, it's my Dutch foundation that gives me the balls and courage to share my raw and unedited story with the world! By sharing my journey in this book, I hope to offer a voice and encouragement to people who are ill and find themselves struggling while uncovering the mystery of chronic disease."
