Dorit Kemsley Criticized For Lack of Time Spent with Daughter

Dorit Kemsley is the new kid on the block on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fans have been quick to judge her, calling her out on every little thing she does or doesn’t do. This is typical of the fan base, those who have watched the show for several seasons are invested in the long-time cast members. Kemsley came in through Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, PK happens to manage Boy George. After starting off the season with “pantygate,” things have taken a much more brutal turn for Dorit.

Putting your life out there for the general public to judge can be a hard thing, but it seemed that Dorit Kemsley was handling things quite well. She was responding to things said on social media, defending the things she did and said. After last week’s episode, things took a turn for the worst when some fans mentioned her young daughter, Phoenix. According to All About the Tea, Dorit Kemsley did respond to the harsh critique of her parenting skills. Also, Boy George chimed in to say that he thinks she is a wonderful mother. It looks like talking about her daughter struck a nerve, and they aren’t going to let it fly.

Kids of the women from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are quite often talked about. In fact, Dorit Kemsley is hardly the first reality star to have her kids talked about because of her very public life. Phoenix was seen last week on the show because Kemsley had thrown her husband, PK a birthday party. She was holding her daughter as some of the other cast members arrived and they gushed over how cute the little girl was in her dress. Some of the comments about her young daughter have crossed the line according to some fans. Most believe that children should be off limits, even if the parents are really making it hard to like them.
It is unclear how much of the season will feature Dorit Kemsley with her children. Up until this point, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has only seen Phoenix twice. Kemsley and PK did some filming at the doctor’s office when their daughter had her corrective helmet removed. That was the first introduction to her daughter, and last week was the second time she was seen on camera. Kemsley is not apologizing for the way she is raising her children. The comment that struck a nerve was about the lack of eye contact that Phoenix reportedly had with her mother. She is still a young child and sometimes, it just isn’t always there.

A new episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be airing tomorrow night. It is unclear whether or not Dorit Kemsley will be showing her daughter more this season, but if she does, there will likely be more drama on social media. Fans have come to her defense, telling the people with comments about Phoenix to back off, but it is almost drawing more attention to them. Kemsley has had a lot on her plate this season dealing with her cast members and now, she is the target of online bullying about her daughter. “Pantygate” wasn’t great for her either, but she has spoken out again and again about how that wasn’t how it was meant to come across and that she was really just trying to joke around with Erika. Adding Dorit Kemsley to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was definitely a big move on the part of casting, but it seems that she fits in rather well with the cast, stirring up drama whenever she has a free moment.

Kelly Dodd Claims Heather Dubrow Really Quit 'RHOC' After Getting Demoted To 'Friend of the Housewives'

Did Heather Dubrow voluntarily quit The Real Housewives of Orange County? On Friday, right after Heather announced her departure from the show after starring on it for five seasons, it was reported that she didn’t exactly leave just because she no longer wanted to do it. According to The Dirty, Heather declined to return after she was offered only a “friend” of the housewives spot for the upcoming 12th season. After that was reported, Kelly Dodd, who joined the cast on Season 11 and whom viewers saw battle with Heather throughout the season, confirmed that it’s true that Heather was only offered a “friend” role for the next season. Kelly has also spoken up about whether viewers will see her again on the next season.

The Dirty quoted a source as saying that producers offered Heather a “friend” rather than starring role for Season 12 because they decided that her story lines were getting too boring to warrant her holding an orange in the starring credits. According to the source, Heather declined the “friend” position.
“Heather was offered a friend role for this season. However, she decided not to take it…Production was bored with her story line. It’s been about her house and wealth for years, and they didn’t feel there was enough substance for her to return again as a full time Housewife. Heather turned down the friend role and thus left.”
In the Real Housewives world, a “friend” of the housewives position typically means that the woman is shown intermittently interacting with the starring housewives in group settings. She may or may not take part in the group trips and may or may not appear on the reunion show, depending on how involved she is with the season’s dramatic story lines. Unlike the starring housewives, a “friend” does not appear in the starring credits nor is much focus typically paid to her personal life outside of her interactions with the other housewives.

A viewer left a comment on Kelly’s latest Instagram post about what The Dirty reported regarding Heather’s departure. The viewer gave her opinion that Heather only left because she wasn’t offered a starring role, which she and her husband, Terry Dubrow, would have gladly accepted since they’re “money and fame wh**es.” The viewer also speculated that it was Tamra Judge who gave the website the scoop since she’s friends with the website’s founder.
“makeupcrayz: @rhoc_kellyddodd: The Dirty.com is a reality/celeb site now. New post about Heather not leaving due to other opurtunities. A source( which lmao, we all know is Tamera because she is tight with Nik Richie) says she was only asked back as a “friend” and not full time. She turned it down and left. Is it true? I believe it. The Dubriw’s are money and fame wh**es. No way they would turn down that check.”
Kelly replied that it’s true. It’s not clear whether Kelly is confirming that it’s true that both Heather was only offered a “friend” role and that it was Tamra who spilled the beans or if she’s just confirming the producers’ casting decision.
“rhoc_kellyddodd@makeupcrayz it’s true!”

Porsha Williams Addresses Her Anger Management Problems

Porsha Williams' hot tempter and history of violent behavior has been extensively documented on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But the 35-year-old Dish Nation host addressed her issues on Sunday’s all-new episode of the hit Bravo series, taking proactive steps to change her habits and fix some of her broken relationships.

Attending an anger management session with licensed psychologist Dr. Matt Smith, Porsha explained how a tense argument with Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore left her nervous about attending an upcoming group “glamping” trip.

“Kenya, I know how to deal with,” she said. “But Kandi going off and acting a fool like that? She’s had some feelings towards me lately that I can not explain … I haven’t really figured out how to deal with her besides walk away right now.”

“Why in the hell would I go on a trip with women, who are no. 1 more angry than me?” she asked. “I just really need space from all these girls.”

It was a good question to ask, as Williams had been previously involved in three physical altercations on the show — including one at the season 6 reunion in which she grabbed Moore by the hair and threw her to the ground. There was also a battle with Cynthia Bailey during a season 8 trip to Lake Lanier, and an off-camera fight last season involving her and her “Go Naked” marketing manager Jami Ziegler.

She got some good advice from Dr. Smith, though. “I think that maybe this trip might be good for you,” he said. “A lot of the times we have to be able to get through the muck in order to be able to get to what’s good.”

He also suggested Williams bring someone with her on the trip and envision bad scenarios so that she can be prepared if they actually happen.

“I would think that you should bring a support system because a support system may help you to fight when people are throwing shade, for lack of a better [phrase],” he advised. “I want you to kind of talk about what you want your legacy to be and how that can help you deescalate some of the triggers you might have. You also have to use imagery to see what might go wrong and ask, ‘How will I deal with each scenario if it goes wrong?’ ”

Melissa Gorga Reopens Boutique Business

Envy by Melissa Gorga will reopen on Saturday after having been closed for over a month due to unique unforseen circumstances.

She recently announced on her Instagram and Facebook page that she will reopen this weekend and will be in the store greeting customers from 12-3 p.m. 

Envy opened last spring and was featured on the runway during Montclair Fashion Night and closed abruptly just before the holidays.

No formal announcement had initially been made by Gorga regarding the closing, however, she eventually opened up and shared some insight with E News. It had been publicized on blogs and now Gorag is opening up revealing that Gorga's former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson had liquidated all of the inventory and then sold the goods at another store Posche owned by Kim DePaola (also known as Kim D).

Now, it appears that Gorga is back and without a business partner, will reopen as planned.

Miami Judge Forces Joanna Krupa To Produce Five Years of Gynecological Records in Brandi Glanville Lawsuit

A Miami-Dade Circuit judge has ordered supermodel and former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Joanna Krupa to produce five years of gynecological records.

Say what?

Judge Pedro Echarte wants to see if Krupa’s doctors ever reported an unsavory odor associated with her lady parts.

Wait, there’s more, and it’s not false news … even if it sounds like it.

If Echarte finds a whiff of evidence of a bad smell in the paperwork, he’ll then admit the documents into evidence for the upcoming trial in a slander lawsuit filed by Krupa against “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” standout Brandi Glanville two years ago.

Krupa, 37, wants to make Glanville pay for telling the TV audience of cable’s Bravo that Krupa’s former lovers weren’t too impressed with her freshness.

Since the best defense against slander is truth, the judge decided it would be appropriate to check for himself.

Kenya Moore Claims Shereé Whitfield Has Been in an Abusive Relationship

Kenya Moore and Shereé Whitfield have always been at odds with one another on The Real Housewives of Atlanta — playfully bantering throughout the past two seasons about the status of their respective homes, Moore Manor and Chateau Shereé. But on Sunday’s all-new episode, things between the two got way more personal when Moore claimed Whitfield had some personal experience with domestic violence.

The shocking revelation came after Moore explained that she didn’t feel comfortable going on a girl’s trip with Porsha Williams due to the Dish Nation host’s hot tempter and history of violent behavior.

“Sometimes on trips things happen,” Moore said. “I don’t feel comfortable going on a trip with somebody who does not have those issues resolved.”

Williams has, after all, been involved in three physical altercations on the show — including one at the season 6 reunion in which she grabbed Moore by the hair and threw her to the ground. There was also a battle with Cynthia Bailey during a season 8 trip to Lake Lanier, and an off-camera fight last season involving her and her “Go Naked” marketing manager Jami Ziegler.


Whitfield, who stayed silent for most of the argument, didn’t buy the “concerned” act that Moore was playing. “I honestly don’t think that Porsha’s anger management has anything to do with us taking a trip,” she said. “I mean, if the bitch want to f— you up, she’s going to do it in Atlanta.”

That’s when Whitfield pointed out that Moore might have antagonized the violent behavior from Williams. “You provoke people,” she said. “Just look at you and Matt — he’s breaking windows. Obviously you provoke a lot of people.”

Frustrated by the implication that she caused her ex-boyfriends violent behavior, Moore turned the lens back on Whitfield. “Now don’t do that —you provoke people too,” she said. “You have former boyfriends who have jumped on you, too. I haven’t been jumped on since I was 16 years old.”

“I know for a fact Shereé has been in an abusive relationship before,” she confessed to viewers. “Someone that has had a man putting their hands on them should not be saying to another woman that she is the cause of a man being violent to them.”

Whitfield denied it, later telling Williams and Parks, “I’m thrown off on the ex that used to beat me."

Heather Dubrow Announces That She's Leaving 'Real Housewives of Orange County'


The Real Housewives of Orange County is losing a housewife.

Heather Dubrow has announced that she won't be returning to the Bravo show.

"After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to RHOC this season. These past 5 years have been an incredible journey and I'm so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture," Heather said in a statement on Bravo's blog, The Daily Dish. "I am so grateful to Evolution Media, Bravo and the whole NBCU family for all of the incredible experiences and the opportunities RHOC has afforded me and my family. However, at this point in my life, I have decided to go in another direction and do what's best for my family and career. Should I change my mind, I thank Andy Cohen, Evolution and Bravo for telling me that the door is always open."

Heather and her husband Dr. Terry Dubrow joined the series in season seven and have showed the ups and downs of their family lives, including Dr. Dubrow's busy career, the craziness of raising four kids and the construction of Chateau Dubrow.

"It's a little bittersweet," Heather added in her podcast, Heather Dubrow's World. "I'm a little sad, a little nervous, a little excited."

Heather credits RHOC with giving her and her family more opportunities than they could have ever imagined like Botched, her podcast, her closet show and more. "Look, focusing on all the positive things, the show has been incredible for my family…So many things were born out of getting our creative juices flowing and being back on television and Terry and I working together. So it's done so much for us," she added.

Porsha Williams Dishes on Those RHOA Threesome Rumors with Kandi Burruss

Inquiring minds want to know: Was Kandi Burruss in a threesome?

The tea heated up on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta when Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks claimed that their mutual friend Shamea had been involved in threesomes with Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker.

However, Williams is clearing things up, telling PEOPLE that she never said her friend “did anything sexual with Kandi.”

“My friend Shamea has never told me anything like that has happened with Kandi,” Williams said. “As far as what else Kandi is doing with her personal life, watch the rest of the show. It will come out.”

Williams, 35, added that she has never propositioned Burruss, 40, for a threesome, but a drunken night did once lead to a kiss.

“I have no want to be with Todd whatsoever. There was a night when we were in the club and I was super drunk with beer goggles and there was a kiss,” the reality star said. “There was fun in the club. But there was nothing where anybody went home with anyone.”

Williams also opened up about her feud with former RHOA costar NeNe Leakes, telling PEOPLE Now that she has reached out to the breakout Housewife after Leakes, 49, sent a few jabs her way during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

“I did call and those calls weren’t returned. It’s just very unfortunate,” she said. Williams added that she doesn’t “have the door closed” when it comes to a potential friendship with Leakes — “I do not have any personal issue.”

Andy Cohen Reveals Danielle Staub is 'In Discussions' to Return to 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'

The official cast for season eight of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has yet to be announced but its sounds like all signs point to Danielle Staub's return. Rumors about the mother of two making her Bravo comeback has been strongly reported after she and nemesis Teresa Giudice reunited over yoga and seemingly buried the hatchet but now Bravo exec Andy Cohen confirms to HollywoodLife.com that the former Real Housewives star is 'in discussions' to return.

"We are casting Jersey right now," he added. 

As for Danielle, she still wouldn't confirm anything but she did say she's very much looking forward to be part of the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, even if it means dealing with frenemy Jacqueline Laurita.

"The only thing I can say is if Andy [Cohen] decides that it is time for me to come back then I would definitely say yes," she told Wetpaint.com when asked about a potential season eight return. "Oh, especially [if Jacqueline is there]. I mean, I am Danielle Staub after all. It's time for her to get 'booped.'" 

Most recently, Danielle posted an article on Instagram, hinting that Jaqueline should be scared of her return. She also added "ITS ALL UP TO @bravoandy" in the caption.

Tamra Judge Confirms Return To 'Real Housewives of Orange County'

Tamra Judge is staying put. Despite attempts by her Real Housewives of Orange County costars Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd to have Judge booted from the long-running reality show, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly the 49-year-old will be back for season 12.

While Judge has not officially confirmed her return for next season, she let her Mother Trucker hat do the talking in a Monday, January 23, Instagram post that featured a photo of the "#HOUSEWIFE" hat with her own hashtag, "#stillahousewife."

In November, a source told Us Weekly that Gunvalson and Dodd hoped Judge would not return for the upcoming 12th season. The duo were at war with Judge, who has accused Gunvalson of being in on ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer claims, which the cast now believes are false. The insurance maven, an 11-year vet of the show, also stirred up drama last season by repeating rumors about Judge’s husband, Eddie Judge, being gay.

At the time, the source explained, "The more Housewives dislike someone, the more producers want to keep them.”

Judge's hat on January 23 suggests she plans to stick around — and this isn’t the first time she's let an accessory speak for her. Earlier this year, she posted a photo of her strong arms as she wore another Mother Trucker hat that read "#FITMOM."

Lawyers Say Chris and Jacqueline Laurita Owe Them $290K

Lawyers representing "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Chris and Jacqueline Laurita in their prolonged business bankruptcy case are claiming the couple owes them more than $290,000 in unpaid legal fees. They are now asking a judge to be removed from a part of the proceedings. 
The case is an especially complicated one, even by the standards of "Real Housewives" legal imbroglios. 

Chris Laurita's clothing firm Signature Apparel -- which manufactured clothes under various trademarked brands -- filed for bankruptcy in 2009. In 2010, Anthony Labrosciano, the person designated by the court to settle the company's affairs, filed a lawsuit against the Lauritas, as well as Chris' brother and sister-in-law Joseph and Adeline Laurita, and another brother Anthony Laurita for using Signature Apparel bank accounts to furnish their own high-flying lifestyles, including private jets, lavish vacations and expensive cars.  

Joseph and Adeline Laurita settled their portion of the case in 2014 for $1 million, but Chris and Jacqueline as well as Anthony Laurita remain in litigation over the matter. 

Jacqueline Laurita, who briefly left the franchise but was asked to return as the legal drama surrounding former best friend Teresa Giudice began heating up, has discussed the couple's money woes on the show, but for the most part blamed them on the costs associated with their younger son's autism treatment.

Their Franklin Lakes home went into foreclosure in 2015, but the couple -- who returned as full-time cast members in the show's seventh season last year -- were able to make their loan current. The couple still face two tax liens filed in 2013: $338,337 from the state and $85,127 from the federal government.

Gamble Breaux Takes A Dig at The Real Housewives of Sydney cast AGAIN

The Real Housewives of Melbourne's Gamble Breaux made headlines in December for slamming The Real Housewives of Sydney and calling them 'feral.'

And again, the petite blonde seemed to take another swipe at the cast when speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald recently. 

The 44-year-old art collector and consultant again called the cast 'feral' and said they'll make her and her castmates look tame.

She said her views come from having lived in her native Sydney - the eastern suburbs -  before moving to Victoria, where she lives in Mt Eliza with husband  Dr Rick Wolfe.

'Sydney women, if they are gold diggers, they are the worst. They will cut your throat. My experience is they can be the most slanderous, evil, and calculated,' Gamble said, adding they try to steal a woman's partner. 

But she clarified she's not entirely sure if the RHOS cast will act the same way as other Sydney women and regrets having a feud with RHOS' Lisa Oldfield.

Cynthia Bailey Says Some Real Housewives Are “Concerned For Their Safety”

In The Real Housewives of Atlanta episode 'Thelma and Louise Take Flint', when Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore aren’t in Flint, Michigan for a good cause, they’re in Atlanta having lunch with the other ladies. That’s where Kenya inquires about Porsha Williams’ participation in anger management classes. Kenya says Phaedra told her about it; Porsha gives Phaedra a look of disbelief. Kenya asks Porsha, “Is that something you don’t want us to know about?” Porsha gets very defensive, "I feel completely ambushed right now," she says.

Cynthia Bailey points out that Porsha has had three physical altercations (one with Cynthia on a boat last season). “So, some of the girls are a little concerned for their safety,” says Cynthia. The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8pm on Bravo.

Jill Zarin Attended Donald Trump's Inauguration

A certain former Bravo Housewife was at Donald Trump's inauguration. Real Housewives of New York City alum Jill Zarin attended the swearing in of the 45th president on Friday, Jan. 20. Ever since she got invited to the historical event, she's been sharing photos left and right on Instagram. Yeah, Zarin really wants everyone to know that she was at Trump's big, yet controversial, day. Seeing as she was invited, is Jill Zarin a Donald Trump supporter?

It doesn't appear that she has ever straight up said she supports Trump or that she voted for him. (Bustle reached out to Zarin  for comment and did not receive an immediate response.) She's also retweeted him on Twitter, but that's not exactly confirmation. Whatever the case, the Bravolebrity was in Washington D.C. watching Trump officially become the 45th president of the United States.

On Thursday, Zarin posted an Instagram of her invitation to the inauguration and wrote, "Dad is out of woods and I'm packing for D.C.! This is my first inauguration. I am going as an AMERICAN to support democracy( and hey I got invited. ..!)"

She also wants everyone to know that she doesn't care what they think about Trump, because this is her choice to go. Also, it seemed Zarin tried to make it clear that she doesn't agree with everything that Trump has said or done. As she Instagrammed, "If you want to unfollow me ... bye bye! I'm sick of bullies. I don't agree with some things but running away won't change it. Be there.. show up... use the system to communicate. But don't you dare make me feel guilty for going to see OUR country at work!"

Brandi Glanville Doesn't "Get" Why Lisa Rinna Is So Concerned with Kim Richards

Lisa Rinna has a Kim Richards problem. And by that, it seems she can't stop talking about her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar. But it's a problem she's vowed to fix. On the last episode, Lisa and newcomer Eden Sassoon had quite the conversation about Kim and Kyle Richards where Lisa declared she thinks Kim is close to death while struggling with sobriety.

"They're this close to Kim dying," Lisa told Eden. And, "Kyle is her enabler."

Eden has been open about her sobriety and the overdose death of her sister. Lisa said she thinks Eden could be the only person Kim would "even let in."
Former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Kim pal Brandi Glanville stopped by Watch What Happens Live and told Andy Cohen her take on the drama.

"I just don't understand why Lisa Rinna, who clearly does not like Kim, is so concerned with her sobriety, on whether she lives or dies. I don't get it," Brandi said. "Like, really?"

Lisa took to her Bravo blog after the episode to discuss what went down during her conversation with Eden. Lisa wrote she didn't remember saying some of the things she saw on tape while she watched the episode. "As I watch this play out along with all of you, I come to quite a realization in that store. As Eden tells me about the night her sister Catya tragically passed away, I am suddenly flooded with the memory of Kyle telling us what keeps her up at night last year while we were all in the Hamptons," Lisa wrote. "Kyle was very open and very honest with us as she explained how she often worries about receiving that ‘phone call' regarding her sister Kim. "

Jules Wainstein Attacks Husband Michael In Divorce Court

Jules Wainstein’s husband is so broke that he can’t pay their children’s tuition OR the family’s Uber bills! In a shocking court hearing, the former Real Housewives of New York City stars faced off in their divorce, with Jules’ attorney slamming her estranged husband for trying to blame his client for the family’s financial problems, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

Radar was in the New York City courtroom when the pair fought in front of a judge over their dire money problems.

Mr. Wainstein hasn’t paid $10,000 on September 30 of 2016 or $10,000 on Oct 28, 2016 for tuition for the children, utilities, Uber, transportation, nanny and weekly groceries,” Jules’ lawyer revealed. “No payments. He has not paid tuition. The Uber account shuts off and on. There is constant terminations of service for Time Warner Cable. Council stated in September on the record, that Uber would be paid.”

As Radar exclusively reported, the Bravo stars split after the police were called to their house multiple times for domestic violence accusations lobbied by Jules against her husband. The police did not arrest him and he was never charged with a crime.

However, their finances took a huge hit in recent years, and her lawyer told the judge that Michael was not fulfilling his promises to take care of the children.

“We have tax returns that still haven’t been filed,” he said. “Look at his drafts once again. This year will be worse than 2015-2016, but it never says what 2015-2016 is. He said he’s applied for financial aid for the children, but no application. I doubt it’s been filed because I haven’t seen it. He tried to put it on my client that she’s holding things up. It was supposed to be done months and months ago.”

Jules’ attorney told the judge that they were concerned about his money situation.

Eden Sassoon Says Her Late Sister’s Addiction to Drugs Began with Robert Downey, Jr. and Kim Richards

Eden Sassoon made her debut on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Tuesday, opening up about how her late sister became addicted to drugs while partying in the ’80s with Robert Downey, Jr. and original RHOBH star Kim Richards.

The daughter of legendary beauty icon Vidal Sassoon, Catya Sassoon died of an overdose in 2002. She was just 34.

“For a long time I was numb, very numb to it,” Eden, 43, explained to Housewives Lisa Rinna and Erika Girardi on Tuesday. “And completely shut off.”

Catya was an actress whose first movie was 1985’s Tuff Turf. Her costars in the film were James Spader, Downey, Jr. and Richards.

“This was way way back in the day, when my dad bought Frank Stallone’s house in Bel-Air,” Eden said. “Kim would come over with Robert Downey — and Robert would play the piano like crazy. I was like ‘Who are all these, like, insane [people]’ ”

Eden remembered Catya as being “alive” and “vibrant” at the time. But things quickly took a turn.

“Sure enough they all sort of had their stuff,” Eden said. “I think on this set was the beginning of everybody’s drug and alcohol abuse, if you really look at it. It was kind of pre-f—ed up days.”

Porsha Williams Responds to Kenya Moore's "Golden Shower" Claim

Despite what Kenya Moore may have said on tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (and what old footage may have appeared to show her admitting to), Porsha Williams wants to make one thing very clear: She's never been on the giving or receiving end of a "golden shower."

"That's wild, that's crazy. I have never had nobody pee on me, and I would never pee on nobody," the reality star told E! News. "I hope she's enjoying her showers. I don't know!"
Porsha added that she doesn't understand why Kenya continues to come for her so regularly despite the two not having argued in such a long time. "You would think she would have moved on past it by now, but she hasn't and I have," she added. "So, there you go."

While she and Kenya haven't had a run-in lately, the preview for next week's episode hinted at an explosive afternoon for Porsha and the ladies. So what's that all about? "Well, up until this point in the season, I think people have really been able to see a different Porsha. A Porsha who is very much involved in her own life, no worried about nobody else's business. A drama-free Porsha," she explained. "And boom, at that table, drama smacks me in my face. it's difficult to deal with…I try to leave and it just escalates from that point on because they want to press my buttons."

Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” personality Alexis Bellino, through a California corporation that lists her as president, has sold a home in San Juan Capistrano for $2.739 million.

The Spanish-inspired house, built in 1991 and since updated, sits on a cul-de-sac with a swimming pool, two spas and a waterfall feature. Dark wood beams, black-hued chandeliers and light marble floors give the roughly 6,450 square feet of interior space a contemporary vibe.

A formal dining room with a fireplace, a wood-paneled office, a game room, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms are among the living areas. An updated kitchen centers on a marble-topped island.

Another area holds a wall of glass-paneled cabinets filled with handbags and accessories.
French doors open to balcony and terrace space for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Lawns, mature trees and a five-car garage complete the grounds.

The property came to market in the summer for $3.288 million and was listed at $2.939 million prior to the sale. It previously changed hands five years ago for $2 million, records show.

Miami Judge To Finally Hear Joanna Krupa's 'Smelly' Lawsuit Against Brandi Glanville

One of the strangest court cases in Miami-Dade County history is coming to a head later this month after nearly two years of legal wrangling.

Lawyers for former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Joanna Krupa, the plaintiff, and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” standout Brandi Glanville are set to argue before Judge Pedro Echarte on whether he should throw out a slander case involving the two actresses.

The subject matter is delicate: It’s about rumors allegedly spread by Glanville in 2013 and 2014 that a foul odor emanates from Krupa’s lady parts.

And on Jan. 24, Echarte will have to decide whether Granville’s statements on Bravo, the cable outfit that owns the “Real Housewives” franchise, fall under a statute of limitation.

Glanville’s side says the one-year limitation of California, where the statement was made, should be considered. If that were the case, the lawsuit would be dismissed.

Krupa’s attorney, Ray Rafool, says only a fool would use California law in Florida, where the limit is two years. If the judge picks Florida, the case will likely go to a trial later this year.

“It’s unlikely the judge will throw the case out on that argument,” Rafool says. “Joanna was and is a resident of Florida, so there’s no reason to use California standards.”

Manzo plays Alessandra DiGiacomo a high-powered businesswoman who is all-work, no-play on the series. In TooFab's exclusive sneak peek, the former Bravolebrity takes viewers on the set as she shoots her first scenes and tries to shake off her rookie acting jitters. 

The Emmy-nominated web series from creator and executive producer Sonia Blangiardo revolves around the behind the scenes drama of fictitious soap "Painted Dreams." The show just recently started streaming on Amazon.

The cast of "Tainted Dreams" is a soap fan's um, well.. dream... with a slew of popular daytime alum starring: Alicia Minshew ("All My Children"), Michael Lowry ("All My Children"), Austin Peck ("Days of our Lives"), Terri Ivens ("All My Children"), Walt Willey ("All My Children"), Kelley Menighan Hensley ("As the World Turns"), Grant Aleksander ("Guiding Light"), Bobbie Eakes ("Bold and the Beautiful"), Natalia Livingston ("General Hospital"), Nathan Purdee ("One Life to Live"), Colleen Zenk ("As the World Turns"), James DePaiva ("One Life to Live") and the late Larkin Malloy ("Guiding Light").

Siggy Flicker Reflects on 1st Season of 'Real Housewives of Mew Jersey'

The Real Housewives of New Jersey returned to screens in 2016, bringing Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita and Melissa Gorga back to the small screen, alongside new cast members Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania. Now that the season is over, we reflected on the drama and goings on with Siggy in a new and exclusive interview – find out what she had to say below…

How did you find your first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
It was exhausting. Definitely worth it but I couldn’t get out of bed for 30 days! I’m one of those people who feels other people’s pain and when you can’t help them it’s really difficult. There was a lot of friendships broken up in the season and I really wanted to help people to move forward and to bring the pack together. It was heart-breaking. Teresa [Giudice] and Jacqueline [Laurita] have been friends for 18 years and they’ve shared a lot of precious moments. They’ve had babies at the same time and were really close so it was heart-breaking to see that relationship fall. It was also hard because I was just getting to know them for the first time. When I met Teresa we fell in love and had a bond but that had caused a bit of friction whereas I just wanted everyone to get along and move forward.
What did you make of the response from fans about your participation on the show?
Oh my God it was overwhelming; I am so grateful. I’m so grateful for the network for giving me a platform to grow. Ever since I was 14, I’ve always wanted to help and inspire people and more importantly, make them laugh. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted. I’m doing motivational speeches around the country in which I can tell my story of how I came from nothing. To get me through college I waited tables at TGI Fridays and I was a nanny in New York, so I can start telling people that failure and rejection is protection in life and just something that you have to go through. There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to change people’s lives; apart from my children obviously! The moral is, if I can do it and walk straight without any shortcuts, the hard work and dedication will pay off. This season proves that you don’t need to be full of drama to stand out and a lot of the fans reacted so nicely to that.

There’s been a lot of post-season drama; which of the Housewives would you still call a friend at this point?
I’m close with all of them. I just got off the phone with Jacqueline, I talk to Melissa daily and Dolores and I are best friends. I would have to say Dolores and I speak the most. The Jersey Bond I think is very different to the other Housewives franchises. We all have a very common bond which is that we are all about family first and are obsessed with our husbands, ex-husbands and our children. It’s really hard to do a show when you’ve got children and husbands because when you don’t have to answer to a man, it’s a lot easier. It’s all about our families and we’re so obsessed that we call each other whenever something is happening with our families. Teresa, Dolores [Catania] and I went to Florida and we are already planning our next trip, unfortunately Melissa [Gorga] wasn’t able to make it. I just want all the best for everyone and the season was hard on everyone.

Do you think the portrayal and edit you got on the show was a fair one? A lot of Housewives think the editing room can be a cruel beast…
I think the edit is the real one because I cry in every episode and the emotion is raw.

Phaedra Parks Says Ex-Husband Apollo Can't File For a Divorce That Already Went Down

Phaedra Parks says her ex is not only a felon ... he's slow on the uptake and she wants a judge to throw him out of divorce court.

Phaedra filed legal docs calling BS on Apollo's divorce petition. She says she filed for divorce first, and has already obtained a judgment.

It's unclear why Apollo isn't just dropping his belated divorce filing. She says he pretended not to know she filed, but now that he does, the question remains ... why not drop it?

Apollo's lawyers tell TMZ ... they are going to drop his divorce petition because the judge Phaedra's filing is inclined to undo the judgment because it was handled unfairly ... Apollo didn't have a legal team when Phaedra appeared in court and got her judgment.

His lawyers tell TMZ, the judge unfairly distributed their property in her favor, and will now give Apollo his day in court to argue what he believes is an equitable distribution of assets as well as a fair custody arrangement.

Why Yolanda Hadid Is Ready for New Beginnings

"The best time for new beginnings is now."

Just one week before celebrating her 53rd birthday, Yolanda Hadid shared those uplifting words with her Instagram followers. While some may think it's just your average quote for a positive new year, it could just be the greatest symbol of what's to come for the mother-of-three.

It's no secret that 2016 was filled with speed bumps for the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star.

In a matter of months, Yolanda experienced a public divorce from her longtime love David Foster. She endured a dramatic season on Bravo that featured co-stars questioning the validity of her health. And most of all, she continued to battle with Lyme disease each and every day.

But as a fresh chapter begins with her birthday today, new memories are being created for a woman who is proud to call herself a survivor.
Her three children Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid remain at the top of their game in the modeling industry. And yes, they always produce #proudmommy moments.

Gone are the days of filming dramatic scenes with her Bravo co-stars who once thought she may have Munchausen Syndrome. Spoiler alert: It was just a rumor.

And as Yolanda prepares to launch her book Believe Me: My Battle With the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease this May, her prognosis has never looked better.

"I am seeking, I am striving and I am in it to win it with all of my heart," she recently wrote on Instagram. "#LymeDiseaseAwareness #TvamSurgery #LastChapter #SearchingForACure #RemissionInSight."

Contractors Sue Sheree Whitfield For $10,000 in Unpaid Services

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield has seen her share of courtroom drama, especially while dealing with Chateau Sheree and her potentially racist neighbors.

Now it appears a contractor is taking the 47-year-old to court as well, claiming the reality show vet has yet to pay all of her bills for services provided by the company.

Heritage Landscape Group of Flowery Branch is suing Sheree for $10,012.50 in alleged unpaid services, including landscaping and helping her obtain a certificate of occupancy, according to documents recovered by StraightFromTheA.

“Mrs. Whitfield contracted the landscaping services of Heritage Landscape to help in the completion of her home. We also helped her get the certificate of occupancy pertaining to the landscaping and erosion.”

The complaint goes on, “Mrs. Whitfield has paid some (less than half of her bill), although she was happy with the work. At first she claimed she did not have the money, and then she claimed poor quality work. We would just like to get the balance owed.” 

This latest lawsuit comes just months after Sheree faced a judge over noise and permit complaints that she felt were racially prompted.

Matt Jordan Threatens Ex-Girlfriend Kenya Moore Before Hitting Her Driver

The saga of Kenya Moore and ex-boyfriend Matt Jordan’s tumultuous relationship took a scary turn on Sunday’s all-new episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta — as fans got to see the violent extremes Jordan would go to get her back.

The two had been on a break in recent weeks, failing to reconcile after Jordan angrily kicked-in Moore’s garage-door window. Despite asking for forgiveness and another chance, Moore was unable to look past his jealousy and anger. The last thing fans saw was an upset Jordan calling Moore “manipulative and fundamentally deceptive” before speeding off.

They’d stayed in communication, though. And when Cynthia Bailey‘s ex Peter Thomas invited Jordan to the opening of his new club in Charlotte, North Carolina — an event Moore was scheduled to host — the 45-year-old former Miss USA initially obliged. “Matt needs his guy time, and the last thing I want to do is alienate him from his friends,” she explained.

But as the event drew near, Moore hand a change of heart. “I realized, ‘You know what, Matt — you have not worked a minute on yourself,’ ” she said. ‘You are not in the head space to be around me, let alone in a public setting where we arguing could probably ruin Peter’s opening night.’ ” She therefore told Thomas, who has paid for Jordan’s airfare, to cancel the ticket.

Thomas did so, but somehow Jordan missed the memo. When he arrived at the airport for his flight, he learned the ticket wasn’t there — and took to social media to express his outrage. “Guess who cancels my ticket? Kenya Moore,” Jordan told his followers in an angry video before telling them he’d be driving down to Charlotte to attend the event regardless.

He also began texting a scared Moore —words she read to a “freaking out” Bailey. “He’s threatening me to come back to him or he’s going to go ham,” Moore explained.

Shamea Morton Denies Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams Allegation of Sleeping with Kandi Burruss and her Husband Todd Tucker

The woman accused of sleeping with Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker has branded the rumours 'lies'. 

Singer Shamea Morton has hit back at suggestions she had a threesome with the Real Housewives star and took to Instagram to express her hurt at the claim from Phaedra Parks on Sunday.

Kandi also took to Twitter, to retweet a supportive message from a fan calling the claims 'lies'. 

RHOA star Parks accused Kandi of being involved in the sex triangle, which had Shamea as the third person.

The 43-year-old reality television star insisted: 'She's doing both — she doing both!' when asked about her now former friend Kandi's relationship. 

But singer Shamea hit back on Instagram on Sunday, writing: 'When someone you consider a best friend will cosign a lie about you...it gives you a new definition of friendship!' 

She added '#hurt #girlcode.' 

Talking about Kandi, Porsha had told the Housewives: 'They are really close—she's close to both of them,' in Sunday's episode.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire to Return for TWO New TV Series in 2017

The Real Housewives of Cheshire are to return to TV screens for TWO new series in 2017, the M.E.N. can reveal.

The documentary series about the glamorous lives of wealthy Cheshire WAGs and businesswomen has been a huge hit for ITV’s ITVBe channel since launching in 2015.

Now station bosses have confirmed that series five and six have been given the green light - with filming to start on the new episodes by the end of January.

The last series ended in November with plenty of fireworks between the show’s seven stars - WAGs Tanya Bardsley , Misse Beqiri and Leanne Brown , property entrepreneur Dawn Ward , millionaire’s wife Stacey Forsey , Forever Unique fashion boss Seema Malhotra , beauty salon owner Ampika Pickston and domestic goddess Lauren Simon.

It included particularly nasty rows between Ampika and Dawn while Tanya even called Stacey a “Mrs Bucket” character claiming she looked down on the other girls.

The show also aired plenty of emotional moments for the Housewives, including Misse revealing the breakdown of her relationship with former Manchester United footballer Anders Lindegaard, and Ampika suffering more heartache with relationship problems with her “mystery man”, who has yet to be revealed on the show.

Cynthia Bailey Takes ‘RHOA’ Castmates to Her Breast Exam

On Sunday’s (01-01-17) episode of “The Real Housewives of AtlantaCynthia Bailey brought her cast mates to an appointment with her plastic surgeon — to watch her get her breasts checked out. No doubt this scene was stage to help boost ratings. Viewers got several shots of the former model’s breasts with just the nipples blurred out.

Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss wanted more than a peep show, they moved in to touch and squeeze them.

“They’re perky, full — they’re pretty nice,” Kandi later admitted admiringly of her 48-year-old friend after squeezing both her breasts when they were fully exposed.

Porsha flicked her nipples a few times when they were exposed, saying: “They are cute! They look like the babies to mine.”

Cynthia had her boob job almost 10 years ago, when she turned 40. “In the spirit of rejuvenation I decided to give my girls a rebirth,” she said about getting her breasts checked out. “I decided to invite my other girls so they could be as inspired to look a good as I do,” she added.

Bailey then turned to Phaedra Parks and called her “my number one fan of my breasts,” with Phaedra admitting: “I love them titties! They look good! Lemme see ’em, lemme see ’em.”
