Charrisse Jackson Jordan Speaks On How She Really Felt About Husband Eddie's RHOP Appearance
Sunday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was a big one. Not only did Charrisse Jackson Jordan's daughter Skylar celebrate her 16th birthday with a big and beautiful bash, but her husband, Eddie Jordan, made his first appearance on RHOP. 

We've been witness to the crumbling of Charrisse and Eddie's marriage since last season of RHOP. Charrisse dropped the bombshell at the Season 1 reunion that Eddie had not spoken to her since the show started airing. She also shared earlier this season that Eddie has decided that he wants a divorce. 

Still, Charrisse said she fully expected Eddie to show up to Skylar's big day since it was such a special occasion for his family. "It wasn't surprising that Eddie was at his daughter's party. He's a very supportive father. He's a great father. He's always there for his children," Charrisse told The Daily Dish prior to the episode airing. "We're co-parenting, and we do the best we can as parents to give our kids the best life and make them as happy as humanly possible. So him being in the room was no surprise."

Charrisse told The Daily Dish that she hadn't seen Eddie "in a while" prior to Skylar's birthday party. Though they had talked before then, their conversations mostly concerned Skylar and her older brother, Jackson, 18. "We have children, so we have to communicate about things that pop up with the children. We don't have conversations where we call each other and say, 'Hi, how are you doing?' It's strictly about the children," Charrisse explained. "I'm 51, and I forget timeframes of things. I really don't know how long it was, but like I said, we're not in regular conversations with each other. So in terms of going from a place where we used to talk to each other on a regular basis, it had been a very long time." 

Charrisse added that "it was good to see him though."

Lisa Rinna Disses Kim Richards: 'You Want to Be on a Show and I'm Your Meal Ticket'
Lisa Rinna ran off the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part 2 last week, after frenemy Kim Richards made the pointed move to return a gift bunny that Rinna had given her earlier in the season.

But on Tuesday’s RHOBH reunion part 3, Rinna comes back to the stage ready to fight — and PEOPLE has a sneak peek at her explosive return.

It doesn’t take long for the insults to come flying.

“I think your’e a really sick woman, I do,” Rinna tells Richards. “I’m sorry, I am sorry. I think you’re a sick woman. To do something like that is sick.”

Richards shoots back. “Well I’m sorry you feel that way ’cause I feel the same way about you,” she says. “I actually believed that maybe you were actually turning over a new leaf. She’s not well.”

That prompts Rinna to throw an accusation Richards’ way that has the whole cast buzzing.
“You know what Kim,  you just want to be on a show and I’m your meal ticket,” Rinna says. “I’m it, baby. I’m sorry — I’m your meal ticket.”

It’s a bold claim, considering Richards has been on the show every season since its premiere in 2010 — first as a Housewife (for five seasons) and then as a friend of the Housewives (for the past two seasons).

“I didn’t even want to be here today,” Richards tells her. “I’ve been yours for the last few years. You talk-talk-talk about me, and I’m not even on the show.”

Dorinda Medley Goes After Sonja Morgan With Vaginal Critique and Grey Gardens References
It seems Dorinda Medley has had enough. In a preview of the fourth episode of The Real Housewives of New York City season nine, Dorinda and Sonja Morgan come face-to-face for the first time since their season eight reunion battle, which stemmed from Dorinda not inviting Sonja to the Berkshires last season, and things don't go very well.

"It's not going to go any further," Dorinda told Sonja. "Do you hear me? It's not—"

"What are you going to do? Back it up from me?" Sonja said, referring to an infamous Dorinda moment where she and the other ladies argued about cursing and Dorinda said, "Back that s—t up!"
"No, come on. Why don't you stop getting vaginal rejuvenation," Dorinda said. "And put an E-ZPass on that vagina with your Holland Tunnel. We all know what kind of s—t goes down in that townhouse."

The game, as they say, is on.

Sonja reportedly posted about Dorinda on Facebook that was the straw that broke the camel's back for Dorinda. In the third episode, Dorinda revealed she had a man who prepared a folder full of information for her on Sonja.

"You're a liar, you're a liar and a fraud," Dorinda said to Sonja as Ms. Morgan tried to eat her pasta.

Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville Feminine Hygiene Dispute Headed toTrrial
A five-hour mediation session last week in a downtown Miami office wasn’t enough to settle differences between former “Real Housewives, Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville and Miami’s Joanna Krupa.

And now it appears more likely we may be exposed to an embarrassing public trial this summer centering around the uncomfortable issue of whether model Krupa’s nether region is malodorous.

“We ended the mediation at an impasse,” said Ray Rafool, Krupa’s lawyer. “At this point, we are headed to trial.”

Records show Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Pedro Echarte Jr. has saved a four-week time slot starting Aug. 7 for the slander case, brought in January 2015 by Krupa against Glanville.

Krupa wants Glanville to pay her big money as punishment for spreading rumors both on and off the air of cable’s Bravo about the Polish beauty’s allegedly unwashed lady parts.

Glanville, who was on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” until 2015, says she didn’t do anything wrong even if she was unsuccessful in getting the lawsuit thrown out.

But if nothing else, says Rafool, the lawsuit got Glanville to shut up about former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Krupa.

Lisa Rinna Walks Off 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Reunion in Tears: 'I Don't Need to Explain Myself'
Lisa Rinna had a tough season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

No matter how many times she tried to keep those loose lips of hers shut, she seemed to always find herself on the wrong side of the drama — most notably when she spread rumors that recovering addict Kim Richards was close to death after using again, and when she asked Dorit Kemsley if people were doing drugs at her house.

Sure, as a fan, that all made for great television. But Rinna’s words had real consequences — and she learned that first hand on Tuesday’s second part of the RHOBH reunion.

The reality was so upsetting for Rinna, she ended up leaving the stage in tears — telling host Andy Cohen, “I’m going to walk away for a second because it just doesn’t feel quite right.”

Her exit came after Richards made the bold move to return a gift bunny for her grandson Rinna had given her earlier in the season — as a peace offering, of sorts.

“I brought the bunny because I never gave it to my grandson,” Richards, 52, said as she got up from her couch and walked the still-wrapped present over to Rinna. “It didn’t feel like it had good energy, sorry. So I think what I should do is give it to you and when you and I are in a better place, maybe you can give it back to me. Because right now I don’t feel like it was given to me with the right energy.”

“It’s just been sitting there and I couldn’t give it to my grandson,” Richards continued as Rinna teared up. “I’m all about energy and positive things. Maybe that can be given to somebody else and maybe you would mean it more and get better energy giving it to somebody else. You don’t have to cry over it.”

Kandi Burruss Accuses Phaedra Parks of Meddling With Restaurant on 'RHOA' Reunion
Hungry for conflict. Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss butt heads over Burruss' new business venture during the second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta's season 9 reunion on Sunday, April 23, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek. 

The Bravo unscripted series' preview clip shows Parks telling host Andy Cohen that it was "deplorable" for Mama Joyce to visit a lawyer earlier in the season in an effort to find out if Parks is legally able to divorce Apollo Nida while he's in prison. 

"I'm like, Why are you so concerned with what's going on in my life?" Parks, 43, asks Burruss, 40. "It's been so many things that her mom has said and done."

Parks adds that Joyce could instead be looking into why Burruss and Todd Tucker's Atlanta restaurant, Old Lady Gang, has yet to open. "Your restaurant that's not open — she could be working on that," Parks says.  

Burruss fires back, "Um, we are opening this week, sweetheart." (Old Lady Gang indeed opened its doors last month.) The Xscape singer then claims that Parks has been contacting public officials to make it difficult for the eatery to launch. "Please [be aware] I know you already be trying to do your calling and trying to figure what we're doing, and so you can hate on us to people that you know down at the city," Burruss says. "Obviously, she's talked to somebody to try to do stuff, to have them come at me about bulls--t."

Larsa and Scottie Pippen Moving Forward with Divorce, But It's Friendly
Scottie Pippen and Larsa have finally made a decision on the state of their marriage -- and will move forward with the divorce ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The good news ... the NBA legend and the former 'Real Housewives' star are on really good terms and have vowed to remain friends after the split.

We broke the story ... Scottie filed divorce docs back in October after 19 years of marriage. The two have 4 kids together.

But the two spent months trying to work things out and just last week they traveled to Universal Orlando Resort as a family.

In the end, the two sides decided it's just not working and the best move is to split. We're told both Scottie and Larsa have vowed to remain friends and co-parent their kids.

Of course, the couple had issues in the past -- but, as one source put it, "Couples argue. It never got physical."

The good news ... both should do well on the dating scene. Especially Larsa.

he Real Housewives of New York City Dinner Blowout: Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel Give Their Sides of the Story
Three episodes in and The Real Housewives of New York City is already off to the races thanks to Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel.

During a heated dinner conversation, Ramona asked if Bethenny had explained her past to six-year-old daughter Brynn because articles were popping up in the press. These articled, according to Ramona, were about Bethenny's softcore porn past. Bethenny was quick to point out that it was a job she took when she was making a go at acting in Los Angeles.

"The dinner was like The Twilight Zone. I own every inch of my past. I'm elated that my crappy acting career has been upgraded to my being a former porn star. If anyone can monetize that now, it is me," Bethenny wrote in her blog.
Ramona defended it as concern during the exchange. But Bethenny didn't buy it. "As for the cute and calculated concern, you decide for yourself what the intent was," she wrote.

In her blog, Ramona posed this question: "Aggressive, inappropriate or just a bitch?"

"That's the question I ask myself. Well first, I know that I am not the bitch. Was my delivery inappropriate? Bad timing? Or just aggressive? Well here are my thoughts," she wrote. "None of those words fully describe what happened at the restaurant! As we sat there chatting, yes I did come out and ask her directly if anyone had said anything to Bryn about Bethenny's pictures."
Ramona said Bethenny went on the attack with her "quick tongue."

"My question might have been better if I worded it better, but WTF! I mean, like really, is she that defensive that she needed to say, ‘Yes, Diane Sawyer came to the playground'? She knew damn well that is not what I meant. She also knows what I went through while Avery was younger and I was on the show," Ramona said. "People do talk! The adults talk to each other and the kids hear and repeat! So I was just asking! It's not that unusual for a 10-year-old to walk over to a 6-year-old and say, ‘My mother said your mother is a...!' But B needs to add the drama and talk about me being a drama queen. Maybe she needs to watch herself."

Bethenny skipped dinner at Ramona's the following night, but the drama is far from over.
"Well, Bethenny and I have probably the most…explosive fight ever," Ramona told E! News. "I never, ever in my life had a situation with that with any girlfriend…It kind of tortured my soul a little bit and you'll have to see what happened. It was pretty crazy. Pretty crazy."

Kim Zolciak Signs On for Season 10 of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Kim Zolciak's coming back to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' -- she's officially signed on to return this Fall ... TMZ has learned.

'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim will shoot for season 10, although we're told it'll be a limited role. The show wanted her back as a full-time cast member, but obligations to her other show, "Don't Be Tardy," only allowed her to sign for a part-time gig.

We're told NeNe Leakes hasn't signed on yet, though she's made it clear that IF she does return she should get more dough than Kim.

Here's the way it could work ... since Kim will only be part-time, if producers can convince NeNe to be a full-fledged cast member, they would pay her considerably more than Kim ... problem solved.

Erika Jayne Booted Off 'DWTS'
The elimination came after Jayne danced a Viennese waltz with partner Gleb Savchenko to "Unforgettable" from the Disney Pixar film, Finding Dory.

Jayne is known for her provocative costumes and dances that were sometimes a little too sexy for judge Len Goodman.

"For me, it was a little bit too raunchy, but I am what I am," Goodman said of one particularly sultry routine in late March.

On Monday night, she was much more covered up, befitting of the Disney theme. Unfortunately, her moves were not enough to impress the judges.
"It was incredible," she said following her exit. "I did have a wonderful time. Thank you so much."

Luann de Lesseps’ 22-Year-Old Daughter Victoria Arrested in DWI

Victoria de Lesseps, daughter of “The Real Housewives of New York” ensemble star Luann de Lesseps, was arrested in Sag Harbor and charged with driving while intoxicated.

A Sag Harbor Police Department spokeswoman, citing the police report, said Tuesday that the 22-year-old “was operating her 2003 Land-Rover without headlights and that’s how the stop occurred” on Main Street at 12:35 a.m. early Sunday, April 8. A Breathalyzer test was administered but the department “does not release BAC [breath-alcohol content],” she said. 

De Lesseps’ attorney, Edward Burke Jr. of Sag Harbor, told Newsday, “I look forward to representing her and getting her through the court process, as she is taking this matter very seriously.” She is due in court on May 5.

Victoria and her younger brother Noel are Luann de Lesseps’ children with French entrepreneur and Count Alexandre De Lesseps, whom she married in 1993 and divorced in 2009, a year after the Bravo reality show “The Real Housewives of New York City” premiered. Luann de Lesseps married her second husband, Smart Source founded Thomas D’Agostino, 50, in Palm Beach on Dec. 31.

Kyle Richards Opens Up On First Husband Guraish Aldjufrie & Why Marriage Ended
Before Kyle Richards was happily married to Mauricio Umansky, she was married to her daughter Farrah's dad, Guraish AldjufrieThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom opened up about her first marriage during an appearance on Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald, recalling how they met and why exactly their relationship ended.

Kyle shared that she met her first husband during a Tina Turner concert when she was approached by his friend who asked her out on a date for him. "I lied and I said I was 19 and I had braces and I was hiding my braces," she recalled. "And then I got scared so I had my friend come with me and then it was like a group of people and he was in the group and we became friends. He speaks good English, but he didn't when we first met. He's Indonesian, so he's Indonesian, Arab, and Dutch. He had not lived here long when he had to get up the courage with his English to ask me out on the date." 

The duo later married in a small ceremony and didn't have a wedding. She shared that his family was wealthy, and he owned property around Los Angeles. And it turns out, his demeanor led to a rumor that he was royalty — even though he wasn't. "Well he was shy and cute, and I liked the fact that he was that — and sweet and very much a gentleman. In fact, people said when I got married, 'Oh well she married a prince.' That was the rumor. He wasn't a prince, but he just acted like one because he was very reserved and sweet."

The couple not only met and married young (he was five years her senior), they also had a daughter young. Her role as a mom was an easier one for her than that of being a wife, since she had already been an aunt to her sisters' kids. 

"I struggled with the being married part," she said. "Now I've got the wife part down, but that's hard to be a wife at that age." In the end, Kyle and Guraish separated a few years into the marriage. "I eventually I couldn't do it and I left, and I felt so guilty for so long," she said. "I felt so bad. I was just too young to be married. We're still friends and he's friends with my husband."

On the Real Housewives of Potomac episode ‘Hold Your Horses’, after the ladies attend a horse race in Baltimore Karen Huger welcomes her daughter home from Penn State for the summer and Monique Samuels celebrates her husband Chris’s induction into the Alabama Hall of Fame with Chris’ family. That includes Chris’s mother Shirley.

When the Samuels go out for dinner, Monique announces that they’re looking for a new home because they don’t have enough space, seeing as their goal is to have four children. Shirley throws shade right in front of Monique by whispering to the man next to her, “She better think about who pay for the babies.” And then when Monique complains about how big the Samuels babies are (her two were 9lb.13oz, and 7lb.8oz), Shirley says “You ain’t got none as big as mine!” and claims she didn’t have any pain. Then Shirley suggests that Monique get a job. Monique says no, “I’m a wifey.” The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 9pm on Bravo.

What Viewers Can Expect From 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta's' Four-Part Reunion

Let's just dive head first into what we know will be the most explosive moment of the reunion. Kandi and Phaedra have been going head-to-head all season and their beef has come to consume most of the show and cast. A beef that initially began with Phaedra feeling hurt over Kandi seemingly siding with Phaedra's ex, Apollo Nida, has now spiraled into much more. Porsha Williams has also been dragged into the mess, launching the season's most talked about plot.

Kandi Burruss V. Porsha Williams & Phaedra Parks: Lesbian Rumors And Sexual Assault Allegations

Porsha picked a side early in the season, teaming up with Phaedra to go up against Kandi. There was heat about Porsha allegedly hooking up with Kandi's ex and Riley's father, Block Spencer. Porsha and Phaedra also spread a little rumor that Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker had allegedly had threesomes with a mutual friend.

Lesbian rumors were thrown back at Porsha later on, when Kandi alleged that Porsha had hooked up with a few ladies herself, becoming aggressive after a few drinks, "I mean, she’s definitely hooked up with women — definitely. If she gets drunk, she becomes an aggressive lesbian. Like seriously. Until you’re ready to speak your truth, and be true to who you are, don’t do it boo. Don’t do it."

This would all culminate in a rumor that's taken things to an intense new level: Porsha claiming that Kandi drugged and attempted to sexually assault her. The ladies have been going back and forth ever since. Judging from the reunion trailer it might be the spark that sets everything on fire.

Report Says Porsha Williams’s Relationship with Todd Stewart Staged for ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’
Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams has been gushing over boyfriend Todd Stewart for over half of Season 9, but a new report indicates it could all be a ploy for the cameras.

This season, the former football wife opened up about her latest relationship, detailing the ups and downs of their exciting — and at times troubled — partnership.

One source claims to have spoken to the man himself, however, and claims Todd has confirmed his “relationship” with the reality star was all a plot to keep her peach, according to TheShadeRoom.

“They’ve been friends for years and she asked if Todd would do her a favor for a good storyline in hopes to not get kicked off the show.”

The source claims to have run into Todd at a Birmingham, Alabama club where he gave up the goods on his work relationship with the 35-year-old.

Report Finds No Gunshot Residue on Lauri Waring’s Son Facing Attempted-Murder Charges
Joshua Waring, son of former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson, did not have gunshot residue on his hands or clothing after his arrest in connection with a Costa Mesa shooting last year, according to an analysis performed by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical-Examiner Coroner.

However, forensic experts cautioned against drawing the conclusion that the analysis supports Waring’s claim that the test results could exonerate him of attempted-murder charges.

Such tests are performed to help determine whether a suspect recently fired a gun.

Waring, 28, has been in Orange County Jail for 10 months in connection with a drive-by shooting in June outside a home in the 2900 block of Babb Street that left a man severely injured.

Waring said during a jailhouse interview with the Daily Pilot last week that the results of the gunshot-residue test, which he said was administered after his arrest, could exonerate him. Waring received the results Monday.

However, Debra Gibson, acting chief of forensics laboratories for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, wrote in the analysis report, dated in February, that the findings are inconclusive.

Monique Samuels Says She Felt Instant Shade from the Moment She Met Gizelle Bryant
The Real Housewives of Potomac didn't waste any time in initiating newbie Monique Samuels into the crew during that recent high tea full of high drama. But this rookie held her own, even throwing in her two cents on the little tiff that transpired between Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, and Gizelle Bryant

So watch out, RHOP vets, because Monique has never been one to hold back, and she's not about to start now. "I'm pretty straightforward. I'm from Jersey, just like my girl Charrisse [Jackson Jordan]. We come with mouths and sass. And I'm pretty direct, and I'm not afraid to be confrontational, so I think that might have threw them for a loop a little bit. I know in the past, anytime there's a newbie, usually the newbie is a little bit quiet, but I just don't know how to be quiet," Monique told The Daily Dish prior to the episode airing. "I was born and raised in an environment where you speak your mind. Even with adults, you speak your mind, but you do it respectfully. As a child, that's what we were always told. And my dad always made sure that we were able to express ourselves. So that's just how I am since I was little. I don't know any other way to be." 

Monique said she feels right at home in front of the cameras, too. "It just was a natural flow, even with the cameras and everything else, everyting was just so natural. I think I was born to do this," Monique said of her first season of RHOP. "There was a lot of ups and downs, like being on a roller coaster, being among such dynamic women. Any time you put six strong-minded women in the same room, you're bound to have something happen or some words being mistaken or taken the wrong way."

And it seems as though Monique has already made an enemy out of Gizelle, since the vet didn't seem quite ready to welcome the newbie into the group at the tea. "We immediately bumped heads. And it's funny because I actually thought I would have had more of a connection with her because I'm so close with the first lady of my church, and I know Gizelle's a former first lady. But there are just two different types of first ladies, I guess," Monique said with a laugh. "So I just felt like maybe she's a little threatened or a little intimidated or just flat-out jealous of me and my situation. And she's judging a book by its cover. She's assuming that she knows everything about me, and she knows nothing. She just probably made the same assumption that a lot of people make when they meet a person married to a successful athlete and not too bad-looking. So I'm used to it, though. So as soon as I felt that, I knew what I was feeling."

Kim Richards Joins 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Reunion for a Savage and Awkward Exchange with Lisa Rinna
It's taken over 11 years of Real Housewives shows, but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have just delivered the most savage and awkward reunion scene across the various cities that make up Bravo's reality TV empire.

In part two of RHOBH's season seven reunion, Kim Richards joins the fray to address her continued drama with Lisa Rinna and newcomer Eden Sassoon. You may recall Lisa Rinna said she feared Kim was near death, and then forgot she ever had that conversation when it eventually got back to Kim and Kyle Richards. But Kim doesn't come alone, she's brought somebody (or something) with her: the stuffed bunny Lisa Rinna gave her for her newborn grandson.
"I brought the bunny," Kim says in the click above, "because I never gave it to my grandson. ‘Cause it didn't feel like it had good energy."

The looks on everybody's faces, especially Kyle, say it all.

"I'm sorry," Kim says to a teary Lisa Rinna. "So, I think what I should do is give it to you, and when you are in a better place, maybe you can give it back to me because right now I don't feel like it was given to me with the right energy."

Luann de Lesseps Swears New Husband Tom Isn't Cheating
Some of the "Real Housewives of New York City" stars believe the Countess married a cheating Tom, but that's not the case, according to the proud Luann D’Agostino -- formerly Luann de Lesseps.

“Things are solid,” said the 51-year-old reality TV star told Fox News about her recent marriage to CEO Tom D’Agostino Jr., which took place on New Year’s Eve 2016. “We’ve been through a lot and we made it to the other side, and we’re strong from it..." 

However, not everyone is feeling their wedded bliss. On the show’s ninth season, which premiered earlier this month, audiences witnessed Ramona Singer bringing up rumors of Tom’s infidelity. And according Singer, who once dated Tom -- as did castmate Sonja Morgan, Luann should watch out for his alleged friendship with an ex-girlfriend, which she believes is too close for comfort.

Luann isn’t having any of it.

“I just think she’s obsessed!” she said on her frenemy’s allegations. “She’s obsessed with my love life. Get your own love life. Stay out of my love life if it’s not going to better my life. I don’t go after about the men she’s dating or about her past or divorce... So I feel like she should stay out of my business. I’m a grown woman, I make my own decisions. I’m secured and confident in my decision and in my relationship. That should be enough. And as a friend, she should respect that.”

Kandi Burruss Suing Johnnie Winston For Defamation
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss isn’t about to let her former employee sue her with no recourse. After learning that Johnnie Winston was taking her to court for not getting paid enough, Kandi turned around and sued him back with claims of defamation according to All About The Tea.

RHOA fans who tuned in for the Season 9 finale on Sunday saw Kandi Burruss confront Phaedra Parks about whether or not she gave Johnnie Winston advice that he should sue her. Well, we saw it all play out, and Phaedra was involved in the situation. To make matters worse, Winston is using Phaedra’s law firm to litigate against Kandi, but he’s not using Phaedra as his lawyer.

Johnnie Winston’s lawsuit claims that Kandi Burruss failed to pay him overtime as well as an acceptable minimum wage. During the meeting with Phaedra’s firm, we got to see Parks herself tell the rest of the attorneys that by her estimate, Johnnie was paid roughly $2.03 per hour for his work on Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s wedding. Johnnie claimed that Kandi knew just how much work he was putting in and just how much she was paying him for it, meaning that she knew she was screwing him over when it came to paying fair wages.

It goes even deeper than just Kandi’s wedding, though, since Johnnie Winston was employed by Burruss from August 2013 to February 2016. In that time, Johnnie said that he worked as Kandi’s studio manager, production coordinator, and event planner. By Johnnie’s description of all the things he did for Kandi Burruss during his employment, it sounds like he might have been her personal assistant too.

Kelly Dodd Undergoes Breast Reduction On 32G Boobs
Boobs, boobs and less boobs! 

Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd underwent a breast lift and reduction in Newport Beach, Calif., last Friday, E! News has learned.

Earlier today, Kelly's rep confirmed the procedure, saying, "Kelly did have a successful surgery and is recovering at home." 

The 41-year-old went under the knife to her reduce her 32G breasts, which she'd actually pumped up the volume on three years ago with a breast augmentation surgery.

But, apparently, the buxom beauty was having buyer's remorse. A source close to Kelly told us that she decided to have a reduction because the gals were causing her nothing but trouble.
Our source dished, "Kelly wanted to get smaller breasts for a long time. She was having a lot of discomfort and it was hard for her to find clothes that fit her chest because of her small frame."

Charrisse Jackson Jordan- “Last Season Made Me Deal With My Own Reality”
If there is ever someone that has “gotten their happy back” it’s “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast member Charrisse Jackson Jordan. While her marriage to husband Eddie Jordan may have imploded during last season, she is back with a new attitude and plans to let her cast mates know exactly where she stands. We sat down to chat about her new perspective, what it’s like going into the second season with a new castmate, and what makes this year truly different. 
You are back for a second season on “The Real Housewives of Potomac” and it really seems like you have eased into your independence and are really loving it! What’s different for you this season?  

Yes, I am definitely in a much better place than i was last season. I think I am in more of my comfort zone really. Last season, I had so much going on in my personal life and it was all new, so I was unsure of how to navigate it. It was almost like going through another death. Most people don’t know that prior to filming, I had three siblings that had passed away within two years and two of them had passed away within two months of each other. The first though was that being a part of the cast could be a fun thing to do, to put my mental space somewhere else. Then I had to deal with another death though, which was my marriage. I was really mentally fatigued when I was filming last season. The beauty of it is though, is that I believe everything happens for a reason. When I look back at the person I was last season, I see a person that was really sad. Sometimes you have to really see yourself to really get it. People were actually saying that to me, saying that I was not myself, they were hoping for happiness for me again, things like that. When I watched, I saw what they meant.
During your first season you had real and relatable issues going on. I think that helped you become one of the more beloved ladies on your cast during your first season.  

Thank you! To me, to do something like this show, you have to be honest with your life and not try to become a character. I think often times people look at shows like this and think it’s fake, but for me, I find it more interesting to see your true self. I would rather people see the struggle that I am going through and how I am overcoming the struggle, versus me coming in and pretending like I am something that I am not. I could have easily gone through last season and acted like my marriage was great, knowing that it was not, and excused him by saying he worked in New Jersey. I was put in a position to have to deal with it, and it actually really made me deal with it; my own reality!
Reality is different for you and your castmates this year, as Katie Ross is out after Season One, and Monique Samuels is joining the cast. What is it like welcoming a new lady into this group of very different personalities?  

You know, she’s from Jersey! She’s from the Atlantic City area. I love her. She is a very genuine character, what you see is what you get and I like that. She’s not a pretentious person. She and her husband do very well, but she is a great person and very genuine. At the same time, a “newbie” coming into this situation, people will try to come for you, but she can actually stand on her own. She is officially my “little sister” now.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Will Return to 'RHOA' for the Right Price
She’s baaaaack!

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is returning to Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, for her first appearance since leaving the hit Bravo show halfway through season 5. But could her guest role actually be the first step in a full-time RHOA comeback?

“I’m very motivated by money,” the 38-year-old reality star tells PEOPLE via phone on Monday, when asked if she’d rejoin the show for it’s upcoming 10th season. “Everything has a price. I’m just giving it to you straight. Given the right amount of money for anything? Yeah, count me in. I like to work. I have six children to support, so for sure!”

Her unfiltered answer is exactly why fans fell in love with the wig-wearing, “Tardy for the Party”-singing former nurse who burst on the scene as one of the original five Atlanta Housewives when the hit franchise’s installment premiered in 2008.

Since abruptly leaving the drama behind, Zolciak-Biermann has kept up with the show here and there (“I get so so anxious watching it! A lot of drama!”), but she’s mostly spent the past five years having babies and building a family with husband Kroy Biermann — much of which was documented on her Bravo spin-off show Don’t Be Tardy.
As much as I can respect her honesty about $$$, I just don't see Kim fitting in with this cast unless NeNe comes back too. And the cost of having both NeNe and Kim back could be far more than what Bravo's willing to pay.

Lisa Vanderpump Addresses Her Feud With Lisa Rinna: She Was Out of Order
The upcoming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special is shaping up to be its most dramatic yet.

Fresh off the Bravo series' season seven finale, where Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinnaexchanged words at the diamonds and rosé party, E! News caught up with LVP about the ongoing feud. 

Vanderpump, who received the Unite4:Advocacy award for her work with the Trevor Project and Stop Yulin Forever at last night's Unite4:Humanity gala, defended her pointed attack against Rinna in a recent blog post and why she'd do it all over again. 

"I told her to her face that it was out of order, the reality star admitted. "I'm happy to deliver that message to her personally."

Vanderpump continued, "We kind of talked in circles when she first walked in...She said, ‘Oh, you're so funny!' And I said, ‘No, you misbehaved just there! Misbehaving is going to get messy. I'm not going to have someone walk into my house and attack me!'"
Regarding Rinna accusing co-star Dorit Kemsley and her husband doing coke at their dinner party, Vanderpump spoke it in support of her close friend's outrage.

She told us, "You can't just it out there to 137 countries that there are drugs, you know? What's that about? I said in the scene that I would jump across the table. I would! It takes a lot to piss me off, but that would have pissed me off."

Phaedra Park’s Rep Quashes Rumors She Was Fired from ‘Real Housewives’
Phaedra Parks isn’t going anywhere.

The reality star’s rep denied a report Friday claiming Parks is leaving “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” telling us the rumors are “untrue.”

The online report alleges Parks was canned for the upcoming tenth season of the show after being caught in “treacherous lies this season.”
She has been on the series since 2010.

But if she were to leave, Parks would have plenty of career options to fall back on. She’s a practicing lawyer and also works in the funeral business.

“I practice law five days a week, and if I’m embalming a body, it’s usually overnight,” she told Page Six last year. “It’s the quietest time of the night that ou’re doing the embalming work.”
The single star is also working on her own dating app.

Where Do Gizelle Bryant and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan Stand After That Cease and Desist Letter?
This season of The Real Housewives of Potomac has only just begun, and a major feud is already in full swing. Charrisse Jackson Jordan and Gizelle Bryant kicked off this season with a shade-filled spat outside of Ashley Darby's Manifest Your Destiny charity dance competition.

Both ladies were still feeling pretty salty about what went down last season, with Gizelle accusing Charrisse of calling her a "whore" at the reunion and Charrisse very upset with Gizelle for alleging that she and her husband Eddie Jordan had both been unfaithful while they were still married on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last April.

Gizelle said that things between the two were as bad as they seemed before the start of this season of RHOP. "It was horrible. It was absolutely horrible. She, I felt like, was intentionally trying to hurt me. I wasn't trying to intentionally hurt her; I was just speaking her truth, which I should've allowed her to speak," Gizelle recently told The Daily Dish. "It was as bad as it could be between us. We're still trying to dig ourselves out of that hole."

Charrisse still maintains today that she didn't actually call Gizelle a "whore," telling The Daily Dish, "but what I said was, 'I could call you a whore,' because of the things that she says about herself." She also said that she is "still not pleased" about Gizelle's comments and denies her claims. Charrisse said that she never discussed anything of the sort about her marriage with Gizelle, and that Gizelle doesn't even know Eddie. "It wasn't something I shared with her; it was a blatant lie," Charrisse said. "But I understand how this works now. Some people will say and do anything, and she's one of them."

Gizelle explained that her comments on WWHL were in response to host Andy Cohen asking for her reaction to the reunion bombshell that Charrisse's husband, Eddie, had not spoken to her since Season 1 began airing. "We all kind of sat there at the reunion like, 'OK,' because we know that. I just talked about what her husband told to me," she explained. "Was that right? No. Should Charrisse tell her own life's business? Absolutely. So I have apologized. Now, am I saying it's not true? I'm not saying that."

Charrisse ended up sending Gizelle a cease and desist letter over her comments, as we discovered in the RHOP season premiere. "I didn't think it was extreme. If someone is publicly defaming your character, I mean for her to take a stand and go out and make a statement like that, to me that was what the issue was. I just wanted it to stop," Charrisse explained. "And I realized the type of person that I'm dealing with. So that's why I [sent a] cease and desist, because she was spreading false lies about me. For her to do that, there was no way to resolve that rationally."

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Dishes on Her Highly-Anticipated Return To 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
"Not much has changed in five years!"

After years of fan pleas and rumors of Bravo's begging, it's finally happening: Kim Zolciak-Biermann is making her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The OG Georgia peach, who left the series midway through filming the fifth season and is currently filming the sixth season of her spin-off Don't Be Tardy, pops up in the upcoming season nine finale as a guest at fellow OG Sheree Whitfield's long-awaited Chateau Sheree housewarming party. As if no time had passed at all, she immediately finds herself in a sparring match with Kenya Moore. And as she told E! News, she wasn't expecting it at all.
"Of course I'm going to support Sheree. She's always been extremely supportive of me and everything I have going on, so I was super excited to go and see her house finally. I didn't even really think about—it didn't really cross my mind what I would be stepping in to, to be honest," she admitted. "But I definitely didn't think I'd be duking it out with whatever her name is, Kenya. I call her Kendra all the time. Whatever the f--k her name is. Miss Negative Nancy over there."

Despite the drama with Kenya—and despite her admission that her friendship with Sheree is the only relationship she's nurtured since leaving the show—Kim told us she enjoyed her brief return to the RHOA world. "It was great to see everybody else, honestly. Cynthia [Bailey], she's so beautiful. It was great to see her, and of course Sheree and Kandi [Burruss.] Porsha [Williams,] Porsha's hilarious. So f--king funny. So it was great. I definitely didn't expect to duke it out with whatever her name is."

Jill Zarin Talks About Her Longstanding Feud With Bethenny Frankel
It's been nine years since The Real Housewives of New York City premiered, and seven years since the most epic, longest-standing feud in the series' history: Bethenny Frankel vs. Jill Zarin. What drove the former best friends apart was never entirely clear. Zarin was supposedly peeved Frankel left for her own spin-off, and that she didn't call her when Zarin's husband got cancer. Insults and gossip were blown out of proportion, and the split became an irreparable chasm when Zarin surprised everyone on Scary Island in season three. The two have traded slights over the years, but don't really talk candidly about that part of their past.
In a juicy new Broadly story profiling ex-Real Housewives, Zarin talks about her fight with Frankel, and how it strained her relationship with Bravo host and friend Andy Cohen. "I was very hurt when [Cohen] chose sides," Jill said. "I wished and hoped that Andy would've stayed neutral with the Housewives. To be fair, it's hard to be neutral. Can you really treat all the girls the same?" She continued, "But I felt that he really picked sides in our fight, and I know why. He had invested and said yes to giving [Bethenny] a show, a spinoff, and he had to back her."
Even though the pair aren't speaking, Zarin is optimistic about rekindling a friendship in the future. "I think that time heals all wounds," Jill explained. "I think that my best friend is time, because a lot of things I said at the time people didn't believe and have now come true." And according to Broadly, Zarin "dreams of meeting with Bethenny on the show and resolving their issues."
Now that would make for an explosive RHONY episode.

Cynthia Bailey Explains Why She Chose Not To Bad-Mouth Ex-Husband Peter Thomas On 'RHOA'
Yes, Cynthia Bailey and her ex husband Peter Thomas went through a divorce on national TV on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but the reality star reveals she did everything in her power to keep the messiness at bay.

While speaking on a panel at the Sisters in Power event in Dallas, Bailey said she told producers early on that her divorce would be a part of her storyline in season 9 but the drama between she and her ex would not be, The YBF reports.

"When I decided that I was going to get divorced from Peter and the new season was beginning to tape, I went to the producers and said ‘I have a deal breaker. I'm going to be getting a divorce but I refuse to drag this Black man on national TV.'"

Peter and Cynthia's road to the altar was chronicled in the early days of the hit Bravo reality series as well as their marital ups and downs after they tied the knot, leading to chronicling them eventually going their separate ways was the best option for their peace of mind.

"Sure our divorce wasn't perfect, there were a lot of conditions, conversations & text messages. We said unthinkable things to each other, but I've always said that I'm going to leave this relationship with the same amount of respect, integrity and grace that I came into this marriage with," she said with a mature outlook. 
Even though Cynthia wanted to take the high road at the end of her six year marriage to Thomas, the show's producers had another idea about how their storyline should play out.

"The producers would come to me and say 'he may come for you and he may do this', and I would tell them that I don't give a damn what Peter does, he can go on Wendy Williams and do as many interviews as he wants, I know what I gave to this marriage and he knows what I gave to this marriage. One of the things I'm most proud of us going through this divorce and not making it a sh*t-show."

Carole Radziwill Talks Being The Real Housewives of New York’s Resident Politico
In 1986, long before Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise, Carole Radziwill started her career as an intern at ABC News. Soon after that, she became a reporter for Peter Jennings’s documentary unit, a gig that led her from a shoe-box studio on York Avenue (“I lived on Cup O’Noodles and hard-boiled eggs”) to Cambodia, Haiti, and India, where she covered American foreign policy.

Stationed in Israel in 1991, she reported on the Gulf War, specifically SCUD missile patrol. In 2003, during the war in Afghanistan, Radziwill spent six weeks in Kandahar with an infantry unit of the 101st Airborne Division. Throughout her often-perilous reportage, she’s racked up quite the trophy collection — including three Emmys, a Peabody, a Robert F. Kennedy Humanitarian Award, and a GLAAD Award. Her late husband, Anthony Radziwill, passed away from cancer in 1999, less than a month after the death of their cousins and closest friends, JFK Jr. and Carolyn Bessette. In 2000, Radziwill left ABC News to write a best-selling memoir, What Remains: A Memoir of Faith, Friendship, and Love.

Now more than a decade has passed, and after a distinguished career in hard news, Radziwill finds herself heading into her fifth season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York, which premieres its ninth season tonight. The show’s Manhattan installment has never lacked for drama (see Aviva Drescher’s projectile prosthetic), but season nine, filmed during campaign season, puts Radziwill’s electoral neuroses front and center. Bravo’s resident politico caught up with Vulture to talk Housewives season nine, her ballsy Twitter account, and how Trump is using the reality-star playbook as president.

I saw the trailer for season nine where Bethenny says to you, “It’s all you talk about 24 hours a day, you’ve got to stop.” I assume she’s talking about the election?
I couldn’t talk about anything else. Nothing else seemed as important or interesting to discuss. I’m sure production might’ve wanted me to ease up, but they’ve always been straight up about it being reality, and that was my reality. We start filming in October, so we were three weeks out from one of the biggest elections in my lifetime, if not ever. So it’s not scripted. It was really what we were talking about in these five months that we filmed of our lives. In the next couple episodes you’ll see I go door-to-door canvassing in Pennsylvania with my mom. At that time I was working with a Get out the Vote project. I think the only people in the country who weren’t talking about the election were the six other women on the show.

Do you agree with the criticism that reality-TV culture in this country led to, or made the climate ripe for, Trump’s presidency?
I don’t dispute that. They say we’re the most entertained and least informed country in the world, which seems to be true. We have a man in the Oval Office who’s never held public office, who’s a reality-show star. He’s a businessman, but I like businessmen that don’t file for bankruptcy six times and get bailed out by daddy when the going gets rough. There will be a lot of studies and theories about how reality TV played a part in this election. I think people are just used to that kind of bombast. He really is a great reality star. Recently with health care not going well and also the Russia hearings, what does he tweet out? This insanity accusing President Obama of a felony. This is right out of the reality-star playbook. When you’ve done something that you don’t want people to focus on, like maybe colluding with Russians to steal the election, just throw something else out to divert everyone’s attention and to completely obfuscate and confuse, which he does again and again.

I’m a big fan of your Twitter account. I was thrilled to see one of the Housewives be so brazenly critical of the administration.
I come from many years of covering politics and being in a newsroom where you absorb it all. I worked on the ’92 campaign for ABC. So it never crossed my mind when I started tweeting and trying to get the facts out to counter total bullshit coming out of the Trump campaign. I was watching that rally in Florida when he called on the Russians to hack into the DNC and Hillary’s emails and see what they could find. That is a treasonous act, so I’m thinking, “Okay, this guy’s disqualified himself.” And that’s not what happened. Not to mention calling on the Second Amendment people to take care of Hillary and threatening to lock up his political opponent. This is what happens in a banana republic, and this is what’s happening in front of my eyes. So you can imagine my mood when we started to film.

You started your career at ABC News, right?
Yeah, and just by osmosis, and certainly by covering elections and being in Washington interviewing senators and congressmen and political think-tank types, it’s just in your blood. I guess it’s very unusual for someone 20 years later to be a Housewife on a reality show. I don’t want to be that person on this show because they want to keep it light and bright and talk about cocktail parties and if Luann’s really going to get married. I don’t care about that.

You had a remarkable career in journalism, reporting across the globe, from an infantry unit in Afghanistan to refugee camps in Cambodia. So I get vicariously annoyed on your behalf when the Twitter trolls tell you not to opine about politics because you’re on a reality show.
Just as an American citizen, it’s my constitutional right! Because I’m on TV that right doesn’t exist for me? As though you can only tweet about the Super Bowl if you’re an athlete? There were a lot of trolls, but less and less now because they see what we’ve all seen, which is the collateral damage of what was the most openly racist, misogynistic, homophobic, and hateful campaign this country has ever seen, just littered with lies and falsehoods.
