Peggy Sulahian Responds To 'Troubled Marriage' Rumors


RadarOnline.com:
Peggy Sulahian just unleashed an explosive rant over her “troubled marriage” to husband Diko after RadarOnline.com exclusively uncovered a divorce bombshell between the RHOC couple. As Radar previously reported, Diko secretly filed for divorce from Peggy in 1996.

Despite Peggy’s constant claims of having the perfect marriage to her partner of over 20 years, Radar obtained court documents proving Dikran K. Sulahian filed a petition for dissolution of marriage against Peggy Atteukenian (the reality mom’s maiden name) on April 24 of that year.

Peggy took to her Bravo blog on Tuesday to dispute tales of a troubled marriage. “As you can see, I have an amazing relationship with my husband Diko,” Peggy insisted. She also pointed out a scene during Monday night’s episode in which she and Diko’s playful and loving nature was revealed as they giggled over the Armenian beauty’s misunderstanding of the popular American phrase “beating a dead horse.” “We have the best of times being silly, with love and laughter, even having fun with a topic of idioms such as ‘beating a dead horse,'” she wrote.

Peggy insinuated the phrase goes perfectly with the troubled marriage rumors she’s currently facing. “I googled it later, to find out it meant something pointless to discuss since it’s been discussed so many times already; he’s so right.”

As Radar readers know, the two were married on April 29, 1995 and separated less than one year later, on March 29, 1996. According to the Los Angeles Superior Court documents, the divorce was finalized on December 11, 1996, by Judge Robert A. Schinder. Neither party was present when the marriage was officially dissolved.

Brandi Redmond Talks Marriage Struggles After Challenging Year


BravoTV.com:
Brandi Redmond wasn't afraid to open up about the good, the bad and the ugly of her personal life last season of The Real Housewives of Dallas, especially when it came to her marital issues with husband Bryan Redmond. The RHOD mom shared how she felt distant with her hubby and even revealed that he said he wanted a divorce after how she acted during one wild night at the strip club last season. 

But what a difference a season makes, because Brandi and Bryan are in a totally different place these days. "Bryan and I are amazing. If you go back, if you look at what we went through, I think it was a learning lesson for both of us. We learned to communicate better and just reflecting back on that, it was actually a blessing, because we were able to pull ourselves together, go through counseling, and really focus on the things that we really needed to to make our marriage better," Brandi recently gushed to The Daily Dish. "I love that I had the opportunity to come back and show it to everybody. It makes me smile."

The RHOD couple got to such a good place that they even renewed their vows in front of their closest friends and family in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, last year. "I think what's funny is we were all wearing pretty dresses, the girls, and my husband comes out with all the guys, and they're all wearing robes and then they take them all off and they're in little whitey-tidys. And I'm like, 'Wait, I can't post these pictures,'" Brandi said of one hilarious and memorable moment during the big day. "It was fun, and I think it was more intimate, and we needed it."

Brandi teased that we'll see more of Bryan's fun side this season of RHOD, which fans may not have seen much of in the past. "He was very closed off. He was scared because he didn't know what we were getting ourselves into," Brandi said of the way Bryan came off during Season 1. "And this season, I think you're going to be very surprised with Bryan because his personality really shines and he relaxed and he was himself and he had fun doing it." 

Though Brandi said Bryan doesn't watch the show, reliving Season 1 proved to be a valuable experience as she approached working on her marriage. "Bryan and I's relationship and everything we went through last season, it definitely made us stronger," she said.

Joanna Krupa and Romain Zago Amicably Finalize Divorce


EOnline.com:
It's officially over for Joanna Krupa and husband Romain Zago.

The former Real Housewives of Miami star and the Miami nightclub owner finalized their divorce in a Miami courtroom on Thursday, court records show, a month after they both filed papers to end their four-year marriage. Krupa, 38, and Zago, 44, have no children together.

Neither of them asked for alimony. The two provided the judge with signed copies of a confidential post-nuptial agreement and told them they both signed voluntarily and understand the conditions, according to DailyMail.com, which first reported the news.

Krupa and Zago had previously divided up their assets privately with a Marital Settlement Agreement, E! News had learned.

"Joanna and Romain successfully and amicably resolved all matters; both remain friends and desire the best for each other," a lawyer for the exes said last month.

Bethenny Frankel Extends Support to Jill Zarin's Husband Bobby Amid Cancer Battle


EOnline.com:
Bethenny Frankel put her rocky history with Jill Zarin aside in order to show her support for Jill's husband, Bobby Zarin, as he continues to battle cancer.

As you may recall, the former Real Housewives of New York City stars haven't spoken in quite some time after their fallout several years ago. But all of that has changed as of recently.

E! News can confirm Bethenny put the drama aside, sending the Zarin family a thoughtful gift during this difficult time.

In fact, Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stranger joined Heather McDonald's podcast Juicy Scoop earlier this week and dished more details about the situation..

"Bobby's dying. He doesn't have a lot of time," Patti said. "This is not something to play around with. Network antics aside, me and Andy [Cohen] have been texting and e-mailing, and this last week, Bethenny did send a basket of goodies to Bobby."

Patti continued, "At the end of the day, if you get sick—like Bobby—you need support, and we can all get sick."

Jacqueline Laurita Claims To Be Happy To Be ‘On the Outside’ of ‘RHONJ’


PageSix.com:
Jacqueline Laurita is over the drama of being a “Housewife.”

After Page Six exclusively reported in March that Laurita will not be returning to “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” she explained to us that the decision to leave was her own.

“They had given me a start date,” she told us. “A couple days later they expressed concern that I wasn’t getting along with a few of the girls and they were like, ‘How’s this going to look authentic if you don’t want to be hanging out with each other?’”

“They wanted me to come on and start filming part-time to see how the storyline unfolded and then [said they] maybe would make me full-time,” she explained while promoting her health and beauty book “Get It!” at an event hosted by fitness app POPiN on Thursday night. “They weren’t guaranteeing full-time, so for me to film all season long under all that stress and drama to not have a guaranteed full-time [spot] was not worth it for me, so I said no.”

Cameras had followed Laurita’s on-again, off again friendship with fellow “Housewife” Teresa Giudice, whom Laurita subtly referred to her while signing copies of the book she co-wrote with Jene Luciani (author of “The Bra Book”).
A fan, coincidentally with the same first name as Giudice, prompted Laurita to quip, “I know a few Teresas.”

And as for why the workings behind Laurita’s latest venture — which was released in May — were never captured on camera?

“You can only promote so many books on the show, you know?”

Cynthia Bailey's Ex-Husband Peter Thomas Has a Spin-off Show in the Works with Bravo


TMZ.com:
Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.
Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

Have Carole Radziwill and Boyfriend Adam Kenworthy Called It Quits?


People.com:
What’s going on between Carole Radziwill and Adam Kenworthy?

The Real Housewives of New York City star and the chef first sparked breakup rumors last week after Radziwill, 53, unfollowed Kenworthy, 32, on Instagram. Now, Entertainment Tonight is reporting the two have called it quits — but a source close to the Bravo star tells PEOPLE it’s not that simple.

“They took a break — but they still spend a lot of time together,” says the source. “It’s still unclear. It’s not black or white. The truth is they have an unconventional relationship, and they’re in an in-between stage.”

A rep for Radziwill declined to comment when reached by PEOPLE.

“He moved out, but he never really moved in permanently,” continues the source, referencing a June episode of RHONY that depicted Kenworthy moving out of Radziwill’s apartment. “They took a trip right before the reunion. But it’s not a conventional situation.”

Radziwill has previously admitted that living under the same roof wasn’t a good fit for the couple.

“Living together, our relationship evolved past the point where either of us felt comfortable,” she said during a RHONY confessional. “I didn’t want to keep reminding him to pick up his socks. I’m not that girl.”

“It’s time for him to have his own place,” she added. “I’m not sad. I think six months of living together was a lot for me, you know? It’s not like we don’t love each other. I feel like there’s balance again. Our relationship is not one where we should be living together.”

Ramona Singer Shares Advice She Gave To Luann de Lesseps After Divorce Reveal


Bravo.com:
Ramona Singer was one of the first Real Housewives of New York City to reach out to pal Luann de Lesseps following the news that she and husband Tom D'Agostino would be divorcing. The RHONY entrepreneur tweeted "I am so sad for you" in response to Luann's divorce announcement on Twitter earlier this month.

Well, Ramona has been in touch with Luann since her breakup, and she has continued to console her friend during this difficult time. "We've texted each other. We've talked about how my heart is really broken for her because I know when something ends, it's really, it's horrible," Ramona recently told E! News. "And I know she had her heart and soul in this relationship. And once she decided she wanted to marry him, we were all behind her 100 percent. And she really was never happier than when she decided to marry him, and I never saw her happier. So I'm really sad for her, I really am."

Ramona gave some more insight into the relationship during a recent interview with Extra. "I think Luann is a person who, like every woman, wants the white picket fence and the knight in shining armor," she explained. "Of course, that doesn't always exist, but we still want for it and hope for it, and that's what she was hoping for." 

Ramona and the rest of the RHONY gang will have more to say about Tom when the ladies sit down for this season's reunion, which kicks off on Wednesday at 9/8c.

Stephanie Hollman Reveals Big Changes She Made Going into Season 2 of 'Real Housewives of Dallas'


AOL.com:
This ain't her first rodeo, but Stephanie Hollman still made some changes going into Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Dallas."

The mother of two, who charmed Bravo loyalists last year with her quippy one-liners and her playful friendship with Brandi Redmond, recently opened up to AOL Entertainment about the pressure she felt while filming Season 1 and her new approach going into Season 2.

"Last year I felt like it was so serious," she explained to us. "I was so nervous all the time, and it's hard to trust the process when you're not sure what's going to happen. This time around was very different for me, though, because I trust Bravo and Bravo's fans more [than I did before]. I trust the process. It's easier to let your guard down when you do that."

One way that Hollman was able to relax a bit more during the four-month filming process was to reevaluate her household's dynamic in order to be more realistic about how much she could have on her plate at one time.

"I was smarter this year! Last year, juggling the kids going to and from school, that was a real struggle for me," she continued. "If things ran over with filming, I couldn't just call the school and be like, 'Sorry!' I never wanted to be that mom that's not dependable, so we hired an assistant/house manager just to get everything done. I just realized that I don't do well under stress, and I wanted to make sure my kids never felt like they couldn't do the things that they always could."

Hollman's struggle with dealing with stress was proven when she suffered a string of three car accidents while filming the show's first season. It was a scary reminder to take a step back.

"I don't know if you noticed, but last year I had three different cars during the ten episodes, because I had three different accidents during filming," she revealed to AOL Entertainment. "I would get so flustered! I wrecked my car, my loaner car and then my car again. I lost my insurance, so I also had to get someone to drive me around [this season]."

Danielle Staub’s Bathroom Romp With BF Caught By ‘RHONJ’ Cameras


RadarOnline.com:
Danielle Staub still can’t keep her romps to herself, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

The RHONJ star stopped her sex tape from leaking after she left the show eight years ago, but now her rendezvous with her new man Marty Caffrey could be aired on Bravo!

Multiple insiders confirmed to Radar that Staub and Caffrey had sex in the bathroom while filming the opening celebrations at Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza in May — and her costars were far from impressed from her humble brags about his ejaculation on her shoe.

Dolores Catania went nuts calling her a pig,” an insider said, noting that Catania made it clear there were children present at Teresa Giudice, Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorgas family event.

The insiders did not mention if Staub’s daughters, Jillian and Christine, were in attendance.
Staub, 55, and Caffrey, 65, began dating in April 2016, just seven months before she teased her TV return to Radar. Their relationship began shortly after she split from fiancée Joe Masalta.

“My new relationship is public so whatever I do whether it’s this show or another show or anything I do with my life, yes, it’s here to been seen,” she told Radar at the time.

Kathy Wakile Speaks On Her Longtime Friendship with Jill Zarin


PageSix.com:
As Jill Zarin continues to cope with husband Bobby’s cancer diagnosis, the former Bravo star knows she can lean on a fellow “Housewife.”

“Jill and I met about six or seven years ago at an event and we hit it off right away,” “New Jersey” alum Kathy Wakile told Page Six on Friday. “The thing I love about Jill is that she’s a real girlfriend. She gives everything of herself and she wants to help you no matter what.”

Kathy, 51, who was in attendance for Jill’s Luxury Luncheon in the Hamptons late last month, recalled a “bittersweet undertone” as Bobby remained in the hospital battling thyroid cancer. When she connected with Jill days later at a separate event, it appeared Bobby was on the mend.

“I had asked about Bobby, about how he was doing, and she said, ‘You know what, he’s on this experimental medicine and he’s taking a turn around and he’s feeling really great. It’s nothing short of a miracle,'” Kathy revealed.

After making plans to meet up, Kathy and husband Richie were pleased to see Jill and Bobby ahead of dinner at New York eatery Tony Di Napoli’s.

“I had expected to see him in a wheelchair and the wheelchair was there, but Bobby was walking,” Kathy said. “He was feeling great, looking thin, a little weak, but still really good. And it just shows the positivity, the positive thoughts, that don’t-ever-give-up attitude, and Jill’s amazing at his side.”

She continued, “She’s so encouraging, not sitting around, ‘Oh, this is the diagnosis,’ they’re just pushing through each day with whatever they have and knowing not to do too much, but still, you know, living life.”

Kim Zolciak Slams Kenya Moore’s Birthday Message To Husband After Quickie Wedding


RadarOnline.com:
The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Kenya Moore‘s bitter feud is continuing.

In a Friday night Instagram post, Moore celebrated her husband Marc Daly‘s birthday in New York with a loving picture of the two of them and a caption that read, “Happy Birthday to my husband my one and only my everything. Your wife for life #MrsDaly.”

But when “The Shade Room” decided to repost Moore’s missive, Zolciak weighed in with just one word, as E! News reported, “Lies!!”

As Radar has reported, the battle between the two RHOA stars began with Moore questioning Zolciak’s finances, and mother-of-six Zolciak throwing shade at the beauty queen’s quickie wedding.

Then the two women got into an explosive argument at Nene Leakes‘’ “white party” after Zolciak, 39, confronted Moore, 46, about spreading rumors about her money troubles with hubby Kroy Biermann, 31.
Also, “Kenya came into the party flashing her wedding ring and calling Kim jealous that she took her spot on RHOA,” an insider told Radar. Moore shocked fans by walking down the aisle with Daly in a secret ceremony in St. Lucia this June, with Bravo cameras not present. The marriage has raised eyebrows as Moore was previously accused of faking things with her previous boyfriend to get publicity.

Tamra Judge: 'I Would Never Abuse, Hurt or Neglect' My Daughter


FOXNews.com:
"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Tamra Judge is defending her parenting despite what her estranged daughter says. 

Judge, 49, took to Instagram on Wednesday to address daughter Sidney Barney's Facebook post that accused her of being a neglectful parent, People Magazine reported. 

"I want to say thank you to everyone that has reached out to me to see if I’m okay. I/We are trying our best to enjoy our vacation. Thank you to my Mom who is not taking this very well and feels the need to defend me. I love you Mom," Judge wrote in a since-deleted caption.

Judge is in Aruba renewing her vows with husband Eddie Judge amid the drama. On Monday night, Barney, who lives with her father Simon Barney, Judge's ex-husband, posted a lengthy Facebook message saying her mother was "mentally and emotionally abusive." 

"The reasons I left my mothers house are that she was neglectful (leaving us at home with no food or simply ignoring us entirely), she constantly put herself first and the biggest reason was that she was mentally and emotionally abusive. She was no mother to me," the 18-year-old wrote.

Tamra Judge Calls Gretchen Rossi a 'Thirsty Wannabe' After She Comes to Estranged Daughter's Defense


People.com:
On Tuesday afternoon, Judge, 49, took to Instagram and wrote a negative post about 38-year-old Rossi, in which she called her a “thirsty wannabe” and “#obsessedfreak.”

I usually don’t give this troll any attention because it’s exactly what she wants. But after years of her bashing me and now reaching out to my daughter I must say. Gretchen you are the biggest piece of s— I’ve ever met. Move on with your sad empty childless life and stay out of mine you thirsty wannabe,” Judge wrote. 

“You are obsessed with my life and I haven’t even seen or spoke to you in 5 years. #MoveOn You have NO IDEA What my family is going through or what the truth is, Nor do you care. It’s just an opportunity for you to get your name in the press. #obsessedfreak,” Judge continued. “Funny you of all people should be talking about morals . You have none!

The attack on Rossi comes a day after Judge’s estranged daughter, Sidney Barney, unloaded on the Real Housewives of Orange County star in a lengthy Facebook post, where she claimed that Judge “was no mother to me.”

In an effort to extend her support, Rossi left a comment on 18-year-old Barney’s Facebook post, encouraging her to “stay strong.”

“You have no idea how your brave words are helping so many who have been wronged by your Mother’s manipulation and lies as well….so thank you for being brave enough to speak the truth,” Rossi commented. “I am so sorry your mother and your family is going through any of this, especially publicly, but continue to stay strong. Your morals and strength are commendable and inspiring.”

But Judge evidently didn’t appreciate Rossi chiming in on the personal family matter: her Instagram attack was sparked by Rossi’s comment and featured a screenshot of the RHOC alum’s message. Judge’s Instagram post has since been deleted and Rossi has yet to publicly respond.

Ana Quincoces Has a Solution for Single Women


MiamiHerald.com:
Ana Quincoces likes to think of herself as a fierce, independent, single woman, but everyone needs a little help sometimes

Especially with zippers. 

You know what we are talking about, ladies. 

When you don’t have anyone to zip you up, what’s a woman to do?

“Necessity is the mother of invention,” said Quincoces, who came up with a product called ZipEaze, a gadget with a clip that hangs from a zebra print lanyard. “My kids moved away. I was all alone, sitting around in a bathrobe, sipping martinis and smoking cigarettes.” (That’s a joke, folks.)
One memorable night the divorced mother of two was even forced to sleep in a particularly tricky high-necked jumpsuit. 

That’s when she started using her noggin.

“I thought, ‘I can’t be the only person with this problem,’ ” said the former “Real Housewives of Miami” star, who found a lanyard in a drawer and attached a clip to it — and voila. “It took me about 45 minutes struggling, but I was able to finally get the zipper up and down. I said, ‘I’ll come up with something and use that premise.’”

ZipEaze, which can be found on zipeaze.com and may be in some brick-and-mortar stores soon, isn’t all Quincoces has going on. Her line of Skinny Latina marinades are doing well and the “The Next Food Network Star” finalist is developing new flavors for fall.

Tamra Judge's Estranged Daughter Sidney Calls Her ''Mentally and Emotionally Abusive''


EOnline.com:
Tamra Judge has hit a severe road bump in an ongoing attempt to make amends with her daughter. 

Sidney Barney, 18, slammed the Real Housewives of Orange County star in a lengthy Facebook message shared Monday evening, accusing Tamra of neglecting her three youngest children and inflicting mental and emotional abuse on them throughout her divorce from their father, Simon Barney.

She also claimed Tamra went against her promise to refrain from publicly sharing photos from her recent college graduation, which Sidney described as another example of Judge "[putting] herself, her fame, her reputation, and her bank account before me."

Barney wrote, "I want to start by clearing some things up as my mother continues to talk about me despite me requesting her to stop speaking of me publically as I don't want to be associated with her or the show. For starters, I did not move out when my parents got a divorce nor did I chose my father's side in the divorce. My parents separated in 2010, I moved out of my mother's house in 2013. Me leaving has nothing to do with the divorce, it has to do with the living conditions at my mother's house and the way she treated me and still treats me today."
"In regards to choosing sides," she continued, "I actually chose my mother's side when my parents separated. This was due to the fact that my mother, the true parent alienator, would constantly talk negatively about my father in front of me and my siblings, putting us kids in the middle of my parents' arguments."

Shannon Beador Reveals Husband David Is Filming RHOC Less After Abuse Allegations


People.com:
Shannon Beador really is one Housewife who isn’t playing around.

Beador recently visited PEOPLE Now, admitting that while she may not have completely worked out everything with some of her Real Housewives of Orange County costars, she is “not afraid.”

When asked if lightning-rod Housewife Kelly Dodd’s presence on RHOC would ever deter her from staying on the show, Beador replied emphatically, “Let’s make it clear — I’m not afraid of anybody. If you wanna come, if you wanna bring it, I’ll be there.”

Added Beador,  “I am a nice person, but there are certain buttons.”

Although she admitted that she and fellow cast mate Tamra Judge  are trying to make amends with Dodd, the mom of three said there is “something strange” about someone who seems to enjoy pushing her buttons.

“I personally don’t enjoy upsetting people so I think that there’s something strange about that. I think there’s something thats a little off,” she said.

Beador shocked onlookers and RHOC fans last month for an expletive-ridden, plate-lobbing fight with Dodd that escalated when Dodd goaded Beador about her recent weight gain, and Beador has since admitted to being a “little bit embarrassed” by her “level of emotion.”

Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Leaves the Hospital Amid Cancer Battle


EOnline.com:
Jill Zarin enjoyed a particularly special date night with her husband, Bobby

The Real Housewives of New York City confirmed on Sunday that her husband has left the hospital after being admitted in late July amid his ongoing cancer battle. The couple stepped out for dinner at New York City's Tony's Di Napoli with Real Housewives of New Jersey alums Kathy Wakile and Richie Wakile

"Thank you @kathywakile and Richie for taking us out last night for Bobby's first real meal in 5 weeks. His recovery is nothing short of miraculous," the reality star wrote on Instagram.
As Zarin previously told E! News, Bobby was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in addition to a brain tumor. "It's been a difficult year since his brain tumor diagnosis but ironically that's not even the issue," Jill explained to E! News in late July. "His papillary thyroid cancer has morphed into something called anaplastic thyroid cancer. It's very, very rare." He had checked into Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where he had been receiving care since July 21.

"Thank you to our family and friends who have shown up everyday to help, give a kiss, bring food or send pajamas. My heart is filled with such emotion everyday it's hard to express," Zarin continued on social media Sunday. "From the initial shock to the new 'normal' it's been the most emotional time in our lives and couldn't have gotten to where we are without help from many."

NeNe Leakes’ Husband Gregg Suffers Medical Emergency During ‘RHOA’ Taping


BET.com:
Filming has not been so pleasant for Real Housewives of Atlanta couple NeNe and Gregg Leakes as the latter has reportedly suffered a stroke while filming the show's 10th season.

According to Radar Online, a production insider for the Bravo reality series revaeled that the unfortunate situation was filmed for the show's upcoming season, and his health will serve as a focal point for NeNe's story line.

"Gregg had what his doctors believe was a stroke," the insider revealed. "The RHOA cameras filmed the entire ordeal for the show — including his visit to the emergency room and the aftermath. Gregg's health serves as a major storyline for NeNe on season 10."

On the bright side, Gregg is expected to fully recover from the incident, but "has been ordered to bed rest due to his age, family history and heavy work load."

A rep for NeNe denied the report that her husband suffered a stroke. However, the reality star recently told her fans that Gregg was dealing with an "health issue," telling them, "My husband Gregg, as you guys know, he's my everything. We have been together for 20 years. We're dealing with a little bit of a health issue right now, but prayers are going up and fingers are crossed that he's going to be just fine."

Luann de Lesseps and Tom D'Agostino Deny Rumors That Abuse and Infidelity Caused Divorce


EOnline.com:
Luann de Lesseps and Tom D'Agostino are fighting back against claims their seven-month marriage crumbled over domestic violence and infidelity. 

A recent Daily Mail report alleged the Real Housewives of New York star was prone to violent outbursts against Tom and cheated on him throughout their relationship. Days after the Countess announced their plans to divorce, reps for both Luann and Tom have vehemently denied the accusations. 

"The Daily Mail story is completely false," a rep for D'Agostino told E! News. "Luann and Tom spoke on the phone about it this morning and they are both upset about it. A lawyer's letter to the Daily Mail has been sent."

The Bravolebrity's rep calls the notion that Luann cheated "rubbish and completely false."
It appears the exes are putting their differences aside for the sake of an amicable split, as D'Agostino's rep adds, "Tom is sad about the end of the marriage. He and Luann are being supportive and kind to each other."

As for what ultimately led to Luann and Tom's decision to part ways, an insider previously told E! News it came down to D'Agostino's commitment issues. "He wanted to live his bachelor's life too.

He's never been married," a source shared. "She wanted a marriage, he wanted a part-time marriage."
Another source added, "When you're a bachelor for 50 years, it's hard to break old habits. But she loved him and wanted to make it work. He loved her too, but had a hard time staying focused."

Kelly Dodd Attacks Meghan Edmonds Amid Cheating Rumors


RadarOnline.com:
Kelly Dodd and Meghan King Edmonds may have made up on RHOC — but now they’re at war again now that the cameras stopped rolling.

Edmonds, 32, revealed that she stopped talking to Dodd, 43, while she was pregnant with Aspen after Dodd sent her a text accusing Jim Edmonds of having a mistress. The women made up when Aspen was 2-months-old, but now Dodd is starting a war again.

“Addressing comments made by Meghan, I was shocked to see her play the victim (as a seven month pregnant woman) when she provoked me originally last summer with a rude, nasty text claiming she heard I had a boyfriend,” Dodd wrote in her Bravotv.com blog.

“Which is total bulls***!” she continued. “Meghan and I had not communicated for weeks before I received her text. No, ‘Hi, how are you?’ No pleasantries. Her text came at me from out-of-the-blue, was completely out-of-bounds, a vicious rumor from some random Twitter troll. Sorry, Meghan, but if you want to start or promote bulls*** rumors, you have no pregnancy defense or exemption to hide behind. Don’t deflect your nastiness on me. What surprised me more was that after this flared up between us, we both agreed to squash the matter last summer. What happened?”

Edmonds has not responded to Dodd’s claims yet.

The reality star and the former baseball player were at odds during her pregnancy, but the Cardinals star quickly turned into a doting dad after Aspen’s November arrival.

Sonja Morgan & Other 'Housewives' React to Luann de Lesseps' Divorce


EOnline.com:
In the end, Luann de Lesseps couldn't make her marriage work.

After tying the knot with Tom D'Agostino on New Year's Eve, the Real Housewives of New York City star announced via Twitter Thursday that they mutually decided to end their seven-month union. "It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce," the 52-year-old reality star wrote. "We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

A source tells E! News that Luann's co-stars had no clue that the couple would be filing for divorce today. "Everyone is surprised by the announcement but not shocked by the news," the source says, adding that Luann's friends "had been encouraging her to get out of the marriage."

Bethenny Frankel, who confronted Luann about Tom's alleged infidelity last season, was asked about the couple's marital issues during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen Wednesday. "I really feel badly for her, because she's been living this totally out loud. I think it's personal," she said. "They got married and I decided to stay out of it after that."

After Luann announced her divorce plans Thursday, several cast members offered their support. "I told Luann I'm there for her whether this worked out or not and here I am. Men come and go, and at the end the day, we have our girlfriends, don't we?" Sonja Morgan told E! News in an exclusive statement. "I wanted it to work out, but I want her to know I'm here for her." Similarly, in an exclusive statement to E! News, co-star Ramona Singer said, "My heart breaks for her. Luann went into this wanting to make it work. I've never seen her happier."

Dorinda Medley, the sole cast member to attend their wedding, also shared her sympathies. "It's always sad when a marriage doesn't work out," she said. "I wish the best for both of them."

Lynne Curtin's Ex-Porn Actress Daughter Alexa Awarded $2.25 Million In Sexual Assault Lawsuit


Patch.com:
A jury Friday ordered Orange County to pay $2.25 million to an ex-porn actress and daughter of a former "Real Housewives of Orange County" cast member who was sexually assaulted by a former sheriff's deputy while he was on duty.

Closing arguments were heard Friday for Alexa Curtin, an adult film actress, who claimed that she was raped by an Orange County Sheriff's Deputy who pulled her over.

A federal lawsuit filed on behalf of Curtin -- who made occasional appearances on the Bravo series when her mother Lynne was on the show -- accused a sheriff's deputy of raping her during a traffic stop in Dana Point in April 2014.

"My understanding is that Alexa hadn't reported it for fear of retaliation," her attorney Jeremy D. Jass told Patch. "She has been living in fear of law enforcement ever since the incident."

Luann D'Agostino Files for Divorce from Husband Tom After Just 7 Months


CNN.com:
Their relationship and wedding was a big storyline on "The Real Housewives of New York City," but Luann and Tom D'Agostino Jr. have decided to go their separate ways.

The reality star tweeted Thursday that she and her husband of seven months are divorcing.
 
"It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce," she tweeted. "We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Considering that everyone and their mother warned her not to marry this guy and he was caught kissing another woman after their engagement, I find it impossible to feel sorry for Luann. In other words, she had this coming.

The couple married in a lavish ceremony held in Palm Beach, Florida on December 31.

There was a lot of drama leading up to the nuptials, including an accusation of infidelity on Tom's part by cast member Bethenny Frankel, and claims that he had previously dated two other cast members, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan.
 
D'Agostino denied dating Singer and Morgan, and his fiancee said the cheating speculation was rubbish. 
 
"I am a hopeless romantic," she said on the episode which included some footage of her wedding." For me, Tom was like home. He was like finding home again." 
 
After the news broke, Singer reached out to her castmate on Twitter.
 
"I am so sad for you ....," Singer tweeted.

Brandi Glanville Calls Son's Stepmom LeAnn Rimes the C Word, Bashes 'Real Housewives' on 'Celebrity Big Brother'


TooFab.com:
Brandi Glanville just dropped the c-word on television to describe LeAnn Rimes.

The former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star made quite the impression Tuesday night when she joined the cast of the British version of "Celebrity Big Brother," as she already started venting about her least favorite subjects: ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, his current wife Rimes, and even the show that made her famous, "RHOBH."

"My ex-husband's an actor, and he married a c-nt...try music star, LeAnn Rimes, after they cheated together," Glanville said.

Prior to her appearance on the show, Glanville told the Daily Mail that she doesn't even find her ex-husband attractive anymore.

"When someone sleeps with someone else, they are no longer attractive to you," she said. "All that is gone."

Glanville said that she sees Cibrian "all the time," especially because they share two sons -- Mason, 14, and Jake, 10.

Glanville and Cibrian divorced back in 2010 after almost a decade together, but the reality star said he still manages to make her "skin crawl." Cibrian famously cheated on Glanville with Rimes in 2009, and the two were married by 2011.

Ramona Singer Reveals Younger Brother Died Three Weeks Ago


USmagazine.com:
Ramona Singer revealed to Us Weekly that her younger brother died three weeks ago. 

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 60, exclusively shared the sad news with Us at Jill Zarin’s annual Luxury Luncheon in Southhampton, New York, on Saturday, July 29. “My brother just died,” she shared. “No one knows this. He died about three weeks ago, my younger brother, and we weren’t close anymore.”

She said that she’s trying to look on the bright side, though. “Because of this death, I got closer to my niece. I flew her out … for about a week,” she told Us. “And I spoke to her and said that I was really sorry about her dad’s death, but if it wasn’t for his death, you wouldn’t have bonded with [my daughter] Avery and I. So we have this whole new relationship we never had.”

Singer added that the experience helped her make amends with Zarin, 53, amid her husband Bobby Zarin’s thyroid cancer battle. “Jill has all these people rallying around her,” she noted. “You see how blessed you are with your friends. It doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter how famous or beautiful you are. What really matters is your family and friends, and friends become family. And Jill has great friends. We are all behind her 100 percent.”

Did Sheree Whitfield Secretly Marry A Prison Inmate?


HollywoodLife.com:
Is Sheree Whitfield, 47, officially off the market? The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is reportedly a newlywed, according to Media Take Out, which claims she married a prison inmate! And, he has a name — Tyrone Gilliams, Jr. Sheree reportedly tied the knot with Gilliams, a Philadelphia, PA native, while he is currently serving time [in Atlanta] for fraud. To make things more complicated, MTO has alleged photos of Sheree and the man who they claim is Gilliams. In the photos, Gilliam appears to be holding Sheree, who is dressed in a “Wifey” t-shirt.

Now, before anyone goes jumping to conclusions, let us remind you that this has been a rumor for quite some time now. Back in 2016, it was reported that Sheree was engaged to Gilliams, who was still behind bars at the time. In fact, when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live in Dec. 2016, Andy Cohen, 49, flat out asked her if the rumors were true. “I am not engaged,” Sheree admitted, although she played coy. “Are you seeing him,” Andy then asked, to which Sheree replied, “Ah, we’re friends. We’ve been friends for a long time.” Sheree then confirmed that Gilliams is incarcerated. However, she refused to answer why.

In case you weren’t familiar with Gilliams, he was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison in 2013 for scamming more than $5 million from investors, according to the United States Department of Justice. Before his arrest, Gilliams was considered an ivy league businessman, having dealt with high profile clients, including celebrities.

And, you may have recognized Gilliams’ name from a former blow-out argument with NeNe Leakes, 49. Season 4 of RHOA — Do you remember when Sheree and NeNe were embroiled in a massive dispute over a business venture, which involved a promoter. Well, that promoter was apparently Gilliams. He, himself, confirmed that it was indeed him who was at the center of the feud during an interview with 100.3 WRNB, according to Philadelphia magazine. What a small world, right?

Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville Settle "Smelly Vagina" Lawsuit....Out Of Court


MiamiHerald.com:
With a trial looming, two stars of the Bravo “Real Housewives” franchise settled a stinky slander lawsuit out of a Miami court Tuesday with what sounded like a heartfelt apology.

“Real Housewives of Miami’s” Joanna Krupa agreed to dismiss her action against her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” colleague Brandi Glanville, who had claimed in several interviews that an ex-boyfriend of Krupa’s complained of the malodorousness of her vagina.

The lawsuit was slowly headed into its third year when the settlement was signed by both women.

The terms are confidential, said Krupa attorney Ray Rafool, but the announcement of the deal was accompanied with this apology from Glanville: “I want to apologize to Joanna Krupa for the statements I have made about her. I regret ever making such statements about Joanna Krupa; I also certainly never intended my statements to be taken so seriously and out of proportion. I apologize as I never wanted my statements to affect Joanna Krupa's reputation, and I wish her nothing but continued success in life.”

Records show Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Pedro Echarte Jr. had saved a four-week time slot starting Aug. 7 for the trial in this case.

Krupa wanted 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 unsavory lady parts.

Glanville, who was on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” until 2015, says she didn’t do anything wrong and was just repeating something she heard from one of Krupa’s exes.

Wetpaint.com:
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been filming for about a month, with NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey and Sheree Whitfield already throwing big bashes that were filmed for the series.

In what appears to be the first major trip of the season, the ladies recently headed west to San Francisco for a little break from tea-filled streets of Atlanta, while bringing a little drama along for the ride.

Reportedly, there’s already a divide among the group, with Nene, Kandi, Cynthia and Kenya sticking together while Sheree, Porsha and Marlo Hampton have formed their own posse.

Nene and Porsha have also been throwing subtle shade at one another throughout the trip, according to unnamed sources.

Siggy Flicker Dishes on ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Season 8 Drama: ‘It’s Out of Control’


ChampagneandShade.com:
Get ready for one of the most dramatic seasons of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. At least that’s what Siggy Flicker says about the craziness that transpired when the New Jersey housewives filmed season 8.

Siggy leaked some juicy details about the upcoming season and we can’t wait to watch it play out. Although Bravo has yet to confirm the premiere date, the Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to return in October. Here’s what we know so far about some of the drama that may rival Teresa Giudice’s table-flipping moment.

‘Everyone is horrible’

Yikes. It sure doesn’t sound like there’s going to be a lot of love between the Housewives this season. We’re already thinking about what will happen at the reunion … but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Siggy Flicker recently talked to TMZ about the drama that transpired while filming RHONJ season 8. And yes, she said, “everyone is horrible.” And that includes Teresa, Melissa, newcomer Margaret Josephs, and the rest of the cast.

Drama in Boca

The ladies’ trip to Florida isn’t a relaxing one. The trip was taped back in February but Siggy remembers it well. Shortly after Teresa’s mother passed away, Siggy traveled to Boca Raton with Melissa, Teresa, and Margaret.

Enjoying some time in the sun and celebrating Melissa’s birthday were on the to-do list, but that didn’t work out. Siggy tells TMZ that things go out of control.

Fans will have to wait to see it all play out on TV, but the drama in Boca is said to be a close second to Teresa’s table-flipping incident.
