Jill Zarin Set to Reunite with Ex-Real Housewives Co-stars at 5th Annual Luxury Luncheo


DailyMail.com:
Jill Zarin will reunite with her Real Housewife cast members at her Southampton estate for her fifth annual Luxury Luncheont this weekend. 

Speaking exclusively to Dailymail.com the New York socialite, who returned to Real Housewives of New York last month, said this year's event will be open to the public to raise money for cancer research.

Zarin's husband Bobby is currently undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer at MD Anderson and Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Florida – both of which will receive donations. 

'I'd like to raise as much as possible,' she said. 'Bobby has thyroid cancer and I really want to focus in on thyroid cancer because people think that it is a curable cancer.

'For the most part it is – 93 per cent of the people who get it, get treated so they never have to be treated again.

'But seven per cent don't respond to the standard care and less than one per cent have it spread to the brain.

'So I want to focus on that small percentage of people and help find a treatment out there that can help them.'

A limited number of tickets, which start at $1,000 a pop, will be sold via Zarin's website. 

Guests at the lavish summer bash will be treated to gift bags, which Zarin says are valued at $1 million in total, as well as food provided by New York caterer Carlyle off the Green.

Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore After Alleged Comments About Kim's Son


TMZ.com:

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

"Real Housewives" fans watched Beador struggle over Gunvalson's accusations that Beador's husband, David, had physically abused Beador. She said on the show that the stress over Gunvalson's claims led her to gain 40 pounds.

"I'm working on it," she told the magazine adding she has already lost eight pounds. "Slowly but surely getting there."

Bethenny Frankel Allegedly Befriended Ramona Singer’s Ex-Husband Mario’s Then-Mistress


RadarOnline.com:
Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer are at war this season on The Real Housewives of New York — and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that there could be a secret reason behind their feud!

The Skinnygirl mogul resorted to staying at her friends’ Hamptons homes before she bought her own pad, and befriended Ramona’s husband Mario’s then-mistress while they stayed at the same house!

Kasey [Dexter] and Mario met at their friend’s home in the Hamptons in 2013,” an insider told Radar. “She had a bruise on her butt from getting hit with a tennis ball and he came up to her and was flirting with her, talking about the injury. Ramona was right there and witnessed the whole thing. Mario asked for her number and the next day she sent him pictures. They were on their friend’s yacht and Mario almost had a heart attack!”

“Bethenny was staying at the same house as Kasey that summer,” the insider added. “They used to be friends!”

“Bethenny knew everything that was going on!” the insider concluded. “Maybe that’s why Bethenny and Ramona deep down don’t like each other!”

Radar previously reported that Ramona filed for divorce after she caught Mario with Kasey at their Hamptons house. She later revealed that their separation led her to contemplate suicide.

Erika Girardi Says Former 'RHOBH' Co-Star Eileen Davidson Will Be Missed


Bravo.com:

Eileen Davidson confirmed earlier this month that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 8. And there's one 90210 pal who knows exactly why the soap actress is definitely going to be missed.

"Well I can't even confirm whether I'm back, so there you go. But I know that a lot of people are gonna miss Eileen," Erika Girardi told The Daily Dish while out promoting her partnership with Beautyblender in NYC on Thursday.

So what is it that makes Eileen such a great BFF? Well, lucky for you, Erika explained all. "Eileen is one of the most understanding, kind, and giving human beings I've ever met -- and what you see on TV is what you get," she said about her pal and sometimes The Young And The Restless co-star. "She's lovely."
Eileen confirmed her RHOBH exit in July, in a statement to The Daily Dish: "After a lot of careful thought, I've decided because of my crazy schedules at The Young and The Restless, as well as Days of Our Lives, it's best for me and my family if I step away from being a Housewife for now. But you never know, I might be popping in from time to time just to see what the ladies are up to! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!"

Eileen joined RHOBH in Season 5, giving fans an inside look at her glam life as a soap star, as well as her marriage to actor Vincent Van Patten.

Vicki Gunvalson On How She Fought Back from the Biggest Betrayal of Her Life


EOnline.com:
Two years ago, Vicki Gunvalson was at the lowest point in her life. After being told on camera the heartbreaking news her mother had unexpectedly passed away, she then had to go through the very public humiliation of having to question whether the man she once called the love of her life had potentially faked cancer to be on TV.

The betrayal by her then boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, who admitted to fabricating medical documents but insisted he did "in fact" have cancer, was ratings gold for The Real Housewives of Orange County. But personally for Vicki it led to a deep emotional breakdown, during which she couldn't even get out of bed. The pain was only heightened when some of her cast mates questioned whether she had been involved in Brooks' lie. "It literally killed me," she said. "I don't think they know the damage they did to my career, my moral compass, my family. It was bad."

Now she's back for season 12, and this time the OG of the OC is telling a different kind of story about how she fought back from the brink to find love—and why she's finally ready to face her demons head on.
How does it feel to be back? 
It's emotional. I want to put everything behind me. I just want to have a good year. I want [everyone] to be friends and have good times.

Tell us about your new boyfriend, Steve Lodge.
It was 10 months after Brooks that I started getting serious with Steve. He was kind of just what I needed. I don't like being alone. It's a couples' world, so if you're not dating or have a significant other you get a little left out from your couple friends. The right people appeal when they need to and he's been good.
He seems to be treating you right…
He is treating me right! There's times where I go, "Is this real?" because he's not very excitable. That's one of the things I was worried about. "So you like me? Are we good?" He's like, "Yes Vicki, I like you a lot, I love you actually."  And I'm like, "But you're not acting like you love me. I'm not getting all those words of affirmation and all the things I need." He's so calm. We have the five love languages… what I need, what he needs. He needs quality time and that's something I don't really give enough of with him, so I'm trying better. I need words of affirmation. I like to whoop it up. He's like, "What exactly does that mean?" So that's a challenge. The bad boy with all that chemistry and all that passion, or is it like a strong, stable man that I know I can count on at all times? And that's what you want.

Joanna Krupa Gets Candid on Painful Divorce: 'I Spent Many Nights Crying'


FOXNews.com:
Joanna Krupa is opening up about her painful divorce from Romain Zago.

The “Real Housewives of Miami” star told In Touch magazine she was “caught off guard” when her husband of nearly four years asked for a divorce mid-December of 2016. The couple jointly filed for divorce July 10, 2017 according to TMZ.

“I spent many nights crying,” the 38-year-old model admitted. “It was the worst Christmas imaginable. I felt like my life had been turned upside down, and I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I cried. I couldn’t eat. I probably lost about seven pounds.”

Krupa explained that their conflicting work schedules impacted their home life, prompting the marriage to crumble. Krupa added she married her friend and business partner, but not her lover.

“I was heartbroken,” she said. “He had wanted a family, but I was always traveling and made work my priority. As time has gone on, I’ve realized we were both unhappy.”

Krupa is now ready to move on and enjoy the single life.

Bethenny Frankel Demands Payment for eBay Commercial, or Else


TMZ.com:
Bethenny Frankel never signed off on being in a commercial for eBay, but they went ahead and aired it anyway ... according to new legal docs. 

Frankel's camp claims she was in talks with eBay and an ad agency about running an ad featuring clips from last season's 'Real Housewives of New York' ... but no deal was ever struck. However, the commercial still went live on "multiple media outlets" last week ... according to the docs.

So, Frankel fired off a cease and desist letter to eBay demanding they pay up for using her name and likeness or yank the ad. And she says even if they pull the spot immediately, they'll still owe her for the week it aired.

As for the ad -- it's a spoof featuring fellow 'RHONY' star Dorinda Medley ... who's apparently totally cool with being in it.

Ashley Darby Splits with Husband Michael


WashingtonPost.com:
The marital turbulence of “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast member Ashley Darby and her husband, Michael Darby, wasn’t just for the cameras — the two have split, the housewife revealed on Sunday night’s “reunion” show of the Bravo series — a forum often used to reheat drama from the past season like so much microwaved fish.

Ashley Darby, 29, has moved out of the Arlington condo she shared with Michael Darby, a real estate developer and co-owner of Oz restaurant in Clarendon, she spilled. Despite Ashley Darby’s early-in-the-series oversharing about the couple’s, uh, prolific sex life, friction over the struggling restaurant had been another plot point of the reality series, and she cited it as a factor in the breakup. “I was really insecure about having a business at 28 years old, and I took that out on Michael quite a bit,” she said.

Michael Darby, 57, downplayed the role of the business venture in their decision to go their separate ways (the couple married in 2014). “We didn’t feel like we were communicating in a way that two people should at this stage in our relationship,” he told the cameras.

But of course, since it’s reality TV, the Darbys dangled the possibility of reconciliation. “I want to get back together but I’m only 50 percent, Michael has to be on the same page as me,” she said. So, in other words, tune in next season …

Luann D'Agostino Is Reportedly Fighting to Save Her Marriage to Tom D'Agostino


EOnline.com:
Luann D'Agostino only married her husband Tom D'Agostino seven months ago, but the couple has already hit a rough patch in their marriage.

Over the weekend, E! News confirmed the pair got into a bit of a public quarrel at Le Bilbouquet restaurant.

"They have had their share of rough moments. There was an argument in a restaurant last week, they're not denying that," an insider told us. "Marriage is tough and they're working on it."

Luann made a similar remark to People magazine, saying, "Tom and I are in love, and marriage takes work. We are working on this together."
However, we're told people around Luann don't feel their relationship can be salvaged.

"People are urging Luann to end the marriage. She got in quick, she can get out quick," one source told E! News. "There's no shame in admitting you made a mistake."

An insider also told People, "They have hit a major rough patch. This was going on before the wedding, and she was too embarrassed to call it off, so she tuned out what a lot of people were saying. She had confided in friends that she knew something was up and that it didn't gel—but she had to put on a good face to avoid embarrassment. Everyone gave it six months."

Vicki Gunvalson Apologizes to Shannon Beador for Stress-Induced 40-Lb. Weight Gain


People.com:
Vicki Gunvalson is offering her former friend Shannon Beador a (small) olive branch.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star publicly apologized to her costar, Beador, who blamed Gunvalson for her recent weight gain.

Beador, 53, announced Monday that she had gained 40 lbs., and said it was from stress brought on by Gunvalson, who claimed that Beador’s husband “beat the s— out of [Shannon]” during their marriage, which Beador denies.

“That stress caused me to eat more, caused me to drink more, and that’s a huge part of why I gained my weight,” Beador said in the RHOC season 12 premiere.

Gunvalson, 55, apologized for any stress she caused.

“I’m sorry. You know, I’m sorry that you feel that way and I don’t want to cause her any stress … If I’m responsible for it, I’m really, really sorry,” Gunvalson said on Entertainment Tonight.

“I don’t want anything bad for Shannon and David. I actually want them to have a happy, healthy marriage. I told her that from the very beginning when she confided in me on their situation. I said, ‘Make your marriage work.’ So I’m sorry. If I’m to blame for it, I’m sorry.”

Karen Huger Accused of Having Secret Boyfriend Named 'Blue Eyes' at Real Housewives of Potomac Reunion


People.com:
The ladies of The Real Housewives of Potomac already came to blows during part 1 of the explosive reunion last week — and in PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek of Sunday’s closer, the gloves come off as accusations of infidelity fly.

The most shocking? Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s claim that the Grand Dame of Potomac Karen Huger — who has been married to her husband Raymond for more than 20 years — has been unfaithful, with a secret boyfriend on the side.

“People say you have a boyfriend. Do I talk about that?” Jackson-Jordan says. “Blue Eyes or whatever his name is?”

The accusation sends shockwaves through the Potomac Housewives — the camera catching Ashley DarbyGizelle Bryant, and Monique Samuels’ respective OMG faces.

While the allegation itself may be surprising, what isn’t really shocking is that Huger and Jackson-Jordan go at it in the first place. After all, the longtime friends have had a few falling-outs this season (who can forget their big Bahamas brawl?) — with Huger even calling Jackson-Jordan “a New Jersey Harlot.”

Asked where that comment — and the suggestion that she had a photo of Jackson-Jordan with someone other than her estranged-husband Eddie Jordan — came from, Huger plays coy.

“I’m not going to do that, Charisse,” she says. “I was hurt. And I meant that I would put the picture up, but I just couldn’t do it.”

“But it’s not factual,” Jackson-Jordan shoots back — explaining how fake photos had circulated on Instagram from an unnamed “crazy person,” who was out to expose Jackson-Jordan’s infidelities. “This is where all this thing of a boyfriend came from.”

Lydia McLaughlin On Why She Returned To "Real Housewives of Orange County'


ThisIsInsider.com:
Lydia McLaughlin says that the time was right for her to return to Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County." 

"It was actually really hard to decide to leave," McLaughlin told INSIDER of quitting the show after just one season in 2013. "I think a lot of people thought I was crazy. One of the producers actually said, 'It's lightning in a bottle and it doesn't happen twice,' because I told them maybe I'll just take a break. I just felt like my kids were really young and I wanted to have another kid close in age to them. And so it was the right decision for my family, but it was hard." 

Four years later, McLaughlin and her husband, Doug, have added on to her family with a third son and they've created a new high-end men's magazine called "Nobleman." With that, McLaughlin decided to end her break and continue her story on the 12th season of Bravo's longest-running "Real Housewives" show. 

"I think that's a really interesting kind of story to follow, the two of us really going out, and taking a risk, and starting a magazine, working together, just the two of us to fulfill our dreams," the 36-year-old said. 

"And then obviously having the new baby being two years old, I felt like he was old enough where he literally isn't attached to me nursing anymore, so I can be more involved and kind of have something on my own," she continued. "Those six months of taping 'Real Housewives' were great, it was much better even than last time."

Vicki Gunvalson Jokes About Second RHOC Hospitalization in Two Seasons


People.com:
Vicki Gunvalson only wanted to “whoop it up” but she ended up getting taken out — on a stretcher.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star has revealed she’s the one who will be rushed away in an ambulance as season 12 gets underway.

The 55-year-old insurance sales executive, who’s been a cast member of the O.C. franchise since its debut in 2006, made light of the incident, blaming it on her cast mates.

“They tried to kill me,” she joked in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “That’s my story: They literally tried to kill me.”

With details under wraps until the episode airs later this season, it seems Gunvalson will be experiencing it for the first time along with viewers since she says she blacked out while filming in the middle of a trip to Iceland earlier this year, rendering her unable to “remember a lot of it.”

“They all asked me, ‘Do you want us to go to the hospital with you, or what do you want us to do?'” she said of the other Housewives’ reactions. “I said, ‘Stay back and whoop it up’ — I think they did.”
Last season, Gunvalson was airlifted following a tumbling ATV accident in Glamis, California. Drama swirled when she felt slighted by a lack of visits from the other RHOC stars.

Aside from the eventful girls trip, this season will also put Gunvalson’s troubled relationship with former bestie Tamra Judge in the forefront.

Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida Finally Agree to Divorce

Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida's long, drawn-out divorce case is finally over ... they've reached a settlement that includes a parenting plan.

You'll recall the huge hang-ups were spousal support and how they'd split property. She was adamant they had an ironclad prenup but he wanted the judge to toss it out. The agreement is confidential so it's unclear who got what.

They also struck a custody agreement -- they'll share joint legal custody and Phaedra will have primary physical custody. Makes sense -- Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.

As part of the custody arrangement, Apollo gets weekly phone calls with their 2 kids.

Tamra Judge Gives Update on Relationship with Estranged Daughter Sidney Barney


RadarOnline.com:
Tamra Judge reunited with Sidney Barney at her high school graduation, but the RHOC star hasn’t made up with her estranged daughter just yet.

“We’re making progress,” the Bravo vet revealed to The Daily Dish. “Every day’s a step forward and we’re just really trying to bring the family back together.”

“She’s amazing,” the CUT Fitness owner added. “She’s doing great. She graduated from high school, going off to college and I’m just really proud of her.”

“It’s still very difficult and we’ve had a long journey and we’re making progress which is good,” she insisted.

She added that she tries not to talk about the estrangement much, but was shocked to open up about it at Lydia McLaughlin’s bible study group, saying: “It was nice because of the fact that I was surrounded by such amazing women that had so much compassion and it just really opened my eyes to a lot of things.”

D'Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott Join 'Real Housewives of Dallas'


Bravo.com:
The Real Housewives of Dallas is back, and a lot has changed with our favorite Lone Star ladies. From new friends to new enemies, RHOD is going to be a whole new rodeo when it returns for Season 2 on Monday, August 14 at 10/9c.

We're going to say howdy to two new Housewives this season: may D'Andra Simmons and Kameron Westcott. D'Andra be a prominent socialite in the city, but she describes herself as "not a typical wealthy Dallas housewife" and someone who's "pretty ballsy." That should come in handy as she tries to take over the family business, even if her mother isn't so keen on letting go just yet. California native Kameron has also come to dazzle the Dallas social scene, and "is like a real-life Elle Woods from Legally Blonde," according to Cary Deuber. We mean, she is blonde and is obsessed with the color pink and dogs, so much so that she's developing an organic and natural pink dog food line. And now we can't wait to meet these newbies.

Cary, Stephanie Hollman, LeeAnne Locken, and Brandi Redmond will all be back for more drama and fun this season of RHOD. Even among these returning Housewives, some friendships ain't what they used to be as onetime besties Stephanie and Brandi are now on the outs, with Cary getting caught up in their feud. Of course, there's lots of drama in store for LeeAnne too as she tries to repair her friendships with the RHOD crew with the help of anger management.


But there's plenty of wild times ahead for the RHOD squad this season as well, featuring the likes of hot dog costumes, sex toys on vacation, and one raucous night out on a yacht. Need we say more?

It all goes down when RHOD returns on Monday, August 14 at 10/9c.

Karen Huger’s Husband and His Company Owe Millions in Back Taxes


WaPo.com:
At least one thing really is grand about Karen Huger, the self-appointed grand dame of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Potomac”: her family’s massive unpaid tax bill.

Her husband, software exec Ray Huger, whom she has called “the black Bill Gates,” owes nearly $1.5 million in back-due federal taxes and his company owes more than $3 million, according to public records.

A major plot point of the show, whose finale was last weekend, involved cast members questioning whether the couple’s finances were as gold-plated as they portrayed them. (So wait, some things on reality TV are actually real?) Fueling the on-screen speculation was the Hugers’ sale of their Potomac home in August for $1.685 million, far less than its listing price of $2.5 million and its county-assessment value of $2.37 million.

It seems the suspicious pals were right: Something’s amiss. The government has a $1.468 million lien against Ray Huger, 70, a former IBM executive who founded software and consulting company Paradigm Solutions in 1991, according to an April 26 filing in Fairfax County Circuit Court. Paradigm Solutions, where Huger is the president and chief executive, also has a $3.06 million lien against it, Montgomery County Circuit Court records show.

“It’s a private matter; it’s being addressed,” Huger said in a brief interview Wednesday.

News has exclusively learned that Teddi Jo Mellencamp, daughter of music legend John Cougar Mellencamp, is officially in the mix. While it's still too early to tell whether she'll be a full-time Housewife with a diamond of her very own to hold in the opening credits or simply appear as a Friend of the Housewives (a la season seven's Eden Sassoon), sources tell us that she is currently filming with the rest of the cast.

While not much is known about Teddi beyond her famous lineage, she describes herself in her Instagram bio as an "accountability coach and fitmom addicted to sweat and laughter" and a "writer of honest sarcastic reviews for anything health/fitness." She blogs about fitness as LAWorkoutJunkie.com. Married to husband Edwin Arroyave, she has two children and one step-child.

Former Housewife Camille Grammer shared a photo of herself alongside current cast members Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley, along with fellow former HW Adrienne Maloof and an unidentified blonde on Thursday, July 6, posing with the Las Vegas skyline behind them. That unidentified blonde? None other than Teddi herself. "Hot night in Vegas," Camille captioned the photo.

Bravo declined to comment on Teddi's involvement.

Teddi's addition to the series comes after Eileen Davidson confirmed she was walking away from the series after three seasons.

Eileen Davidson Announces She Won't Return for Season 8 of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'


EOnline.com:
Another one bites the dust!

After three seasons on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Eileen Davidson has announced that she will not be returning to the Bravo reality series for its upcoming eighth season. The reason she's stepping away? Blame it on her day job.

"After a lot of careful thought, I've decided because of my crazy schedules at The Young and The Restless, as well as Days of Our Lives, it's best for me and my family if I step away from being a Housewife for now," she says in a statement obtained by E! News. "But you never know, I might be popping in from time to time just to see what the ladies are up to! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!"

Eileen broke the news to her fans on Twitter on Friday, writing, "TRUE! Bcuz of my crazy sched @ yr & days I must step away from hw 4 now. But I might b popping in 2 see what the chix r up 2 Thx 4 the <3 .="" a="" at="" bestie="" can="" events="" expect="" face="" for="" hello.="" her="" i="" in="" lisa="" nbsp="" of="" one="" other="" probably="" quick="" rinna="" s="" see="" to="" words="" you="">

The soap star joined RHOBH in season five alongside Rinna, where she found herself facing down a wine toss to the face from Brandi Glanville, on the receiving end of an epic "You beast" taunt from Kim Richards, and in a seasons-long feud with Lisa Vanderpump over LVP's prying into her romantic history.

TMZ.com:

Brandi Glanville Says Smelly Vagina Jabs Come with Territory, Laughs Off Joanna Krupa Suit


TMZ.com:
Brandi Glanville had carte blanche to criticize or poke fun at Joanna Krupa's genitals ... at least that's what Brandi claimed under oath.

Brandi was deposed in the infamous smelly vagina lawsuit filed by Joanna -- and told Joanna's lawyer ... she "didn't say anything that I knew to be false." You'll recall ... Brandi made the vajayjay claim during a 2015 'Watch What Happens Live' appearance.

According to the depo transcript, obtained by TMZ, Brandi also said you get what you sign up for when you're on a reality show. Joanna's lawyer asked, "Do you think that means you can say things like her pu**y smells?" Glanville replied, "Well, yeah."

Brandi also reiterated her claim the 'Housewives' contract bars cast members from suing each other. She insists being on the show means dealing with "the good, the bad and the ugly that comes along with it."

She wants the court to toss Joanna's defamation suit like it's day-old fish.

‘It’s A Rental!’ Karen Huger’s ‘Friends’ Have Major Questions About Her New Home


MonstersandCritics.com:
Karen Huger breaks down in tears on The Real Housewives of Potomac season finale — after the other ladies question the reasons she moved into her new home.

The meltdown comes after repeated questions from the other housewives about why she made the sudden move out of Potomac to Great Falls, Virginia, and whether it had anything to do with her financial situation.

The episode sees the other ladies questioning the Grand Dame about whether she’s lying about her home and why she made the almost overnight move.

She started living in the new house after coming back from a vacation in Bermuda, despite telling the other ladies while there that she didn’t know where she was going to move to after receiving a “cash offer” for her old pad from overseas.

Her secretive way of dealing with the whole issue didn’t go unnoticed by the group, and they were left wanting answers.

The Many Complexities of Phaedra Parks


ESSENCE.com:
It’s not top secret information that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is seen by many as problematic.

Her role on the reality show was often southern belle, queen of the quips and the shadiest (peach) tree you could find south of the Mason Dixon line. But there’s something many of us Black folks say on repeat: We are not a monolith.

Black people are often portrayed as one thing, especially those we consume on salacious reality TV shows, but we are more than that. In Phaedra’s own words, “Black women are mosaic. We are diverse in nature.”

And as such, during Essence Festival’s first day of the Empowerment Experience — which included interviews and panels from activists, celebrities and more — we got the chance to experience the mosaic that is Phaedra Parks. Here are all the surprising and beautiful colors that make up the parts of Phaedra that we may not be well acquainted with.

Phaedra has two biological children, but she takes care of so many. She has sent 150 kids to overnight camp with YMCA. She also recently brought these to Atlanta for a college tour. 

The Phaedra Foundation serves the community and specifically Black men through her Save Our Sons initiative. Phaedra says, “Black men have toughest role in the United States and we cannot remain silent. Save Our Sons provides youth with resources and life-skills to ensure academic, social and intellectual success.

She’s Faithful:
Both of Phaedra’s parents are minister, so faith has always been an important factor in her life. She told the ESSENCE crowd that she walks by faith and not by fear. “No matter what happens, if God never does anything else for me, I have three houses, a plethora of cars, two children, great parents, I’m proud and beautiful.”

Gizelle Bryan Launches Makeup Line, EveryHue


People.com:
No matter how many memorable fights one instigates or GIF-able one-liners one screams, Real Housewives haven’t truly made it until they launch a side hustle. The ladies have ventured into the workout video business, wine world and most often, the beauty realm. And the “word on the street” is that Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Gizelle Bryant‘s makeup line, EveryHue Beauty, officially launched and is available to shop now.

After two years of development, the brand finally debuted a tinted moisturizer (available in 12 different shades), a foundation brush and blending sponge. “I, with my silly self, thought it would take six months [to create]. This literally took me close to two years,” Bryant tells PeopleStyle. “There were some formulations that we came up with that were good but they weren’t great and I didn’t want to come out with something that wasn’t great that I didn’t believe in.”

Bryant’s goal to create the perfect product came from her frustration with the makeup industry. “I could never really find one foundation or tinted moisturizer that matched my skin tone that didn’t read orange or yellow or red so I had to mix things, which becomes expensive so I really wanted to create something in which you didn’t have to do that anymore,” she explains. “So it really required us spending a lot of time in the lab working on the formulations. EveryHue really blends into your skin and matches your skin tone perfectly.”
