NeNe Leakes Says Her 'RHOA' Contract's Gotta Be Richer than Kim Zolciak's



TMZ.com:
NeNe Leakes knows 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' producers would never say how much money Kim Zolciak is getting for her comeback, but NeNe thinks it's gotta be less than her booty.

We got NeNe at LAX Thursday where she told us there's a reason she should get a bigger check. It's funny ... Kim had her own reasons for thinking she's a bigger draw.

As we previously reported ... negotiations are underway for both NeNe and Kim to return as full-time cast members on season 10. It already seems like it's gonna be worth it.

Kim DePaola Speaks Out About Double Homicide


FoxNews.com:
Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Kim DePaola — whose Audi became the center of an execution-style double homicide in Paterson last week — believes the murders were gang-related, and not tied to the mob.

“The mob doesn’t do this,” DePaola told Radar Online Monday. “It would be gang-related. Maybe they pissed someone off and they’re making a statement. I hope they find these savages.”

The bodies of the two men were found shot and burned beyond recognition early last Friday inside the torched white Audi S-line, which is registered to DePaola.

DePaola said the car was being used at the time by Aaron Anderson, a friend of her son Chris Camiscioli.

“People are saying my car was tied to the murders, my car was not tied to anyone,” DePaola said. “Aaron Anderson, a friend of my son, was supposed to drop my son off at the airport, park the car and not use it. But he used the car and then this horrific accident happened.”

The mom, who appeared on the Bravo show from 2010 to 2013, said she was home and Camiscioli was in California at the time of the murders.

“The cops never thought I had anything to do with it,” DePaola, 56, said. “This would’ve happened in my car or not.”

TMZ.com:
Phaedra Parks' ride in the single lane has come to a screeching halt -- a judge tossed out her divorce judgment because it was unfair to Apollo Nida.

The judge said he was troubled by a number of things, including Phaedra "intentionally misspelling the parties names." 

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- hizzoner also said he was troubled Apollo was given the impression he would attend future divorce hearings from prison, which was always out of the question.

Apollo was also not informed of the final hearing or served with docs notifying him the divorce was final.

So, back to the drawing board.

Peter Thomas and Matt Jordan Viciously Brawl, Cops Called


TMZ.com:
'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars Peter Thomas and Matt Jordan threw everything that wasn't nailed down during a radio interview that looked more like UFC 210.

They dislike each other intensely, so it seems the interview was destined for disaster, and they did not disappoint. Matt threw a water bottle at Peter, then charged him. We're told they locked up, and Peter scored a takedown, because station staff broke it up.

It was so bad, cops were called and took an assault report from Peter against Matt.

Here's the bad news. The interview was not live and it looks like the station isn't going to air it.

Danielle Staub Shooting Scenes with Teresa Giudice and 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Cast


TooFab.com:
She's baaaaaack!

Reports that former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub would return to the show this season were confirmed earlier Wednesday, after she was photographed filming the series in Boca Raton, Florida with the rest of the cast.

Staub joined Teresa Giudice, Siggy Flicker, Melissa Gorga and Dolores Catania for the getaway, as well as newcomer Margaret Josephs. It appears the women traveled to the Sunshine State to celebrate Gorga's 38th birthday.

A spokesperson for Bravo did not immediately returned TooFab's request for comment.

Staub was also spotted on the beach with Giudice, the two women continuing to get along despite their explosive past together. In case you forgot, Teresa's infamous table-flipping incident and "prostitution whore" exclamation from Season 1 was aimed at Danielle.

The two women reportedly reconnected by taking yoga class together. According to TMZ, Giudice reached out to her former foe after she heard Staub was tweeting support for her and her family while in prison.

Fans Are Petitioning Bravo To Kick Lisa Rinna Off 'RHOBH'


Refinery29.com:
Tuesday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may go down as one of the series' craziest ever. The drama was dialed all the way up during the ladies' trip to Hong Kong (ostensibly taken so they could support Lisa Vanderpump's activism against Yulin, China's barbaric dog meat festival). And things reached a boiling point during the gang's fiery dinner, set against the stunning nighttime skyline of Hong Kong. It would take a lot of space to rehash all the insanity here. (And honestly, the episode is 100% worth an hour of your time if you even mildly appreciate reality TV spectacles.)
But here's the gist: Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi were fighting about the #pantygate incident that took place earlier in the season, which Girardi never got over. Then Girardi had a teary meltdown at the table after Eileen Davidson unintentionally upset her with a offhanded comment about her son, a police officer, being killed.
All the while, Lisa Rinna was repeatedly chiming in to a conversation that had nothing to do with her — stirring the pot, offering her unsolicited, unhelpful counseling to the women ("Listen with your heart"), and making laughably hypocritical remarks. "You can't play the 'don't remember game,'" she told Kemsley — this coming from a woman with a well-documented history of saying and doing memorable things to the other women and then promptly "forgetting" them.
 
Basically, things couldn't get any worse... unless, for some reason, somebody decided at that very moment to hurl a baseless drug-use accusation across the table, which is exactly what Rinna did in the last few seconds of the episode. "I'd like to change the subject...I have a question," Rinna said.
 
Then she asked Kemsley if she, her husband P.K., and their friends left the table at a dinner party Kemsley threw recently to — get this — go do cocaine in the bathroom. Allegedly, Kemsley had said something about "touching up," which sounds like, I don't know, powdering her nose or reapplying lipstick. But Rinna demanded to know if the woman was snorting coke, in her home, during a dinner party, with two young kids sleeping upstairs.
 
What the f--k?
 
That's the question pretty much everybody who was watching the madness unfold had. People took to Twitter to slam Rinna for what they feel is inappropriate and attention-grabbing behavior. And while the colorful criticisms are many, RHOBH fans have one very specific request for Bravo: please, do not bring Rinna back next season.
"Lisa Rinna is the freaking worst. Plz on all that is good in this world get rid of her as a cast member," wrote one exasperated viewer. "PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I'm begging you at this point, do not recast Lisa rinna on #rhobh watching her is actual torture," tweeted another. "Omg @lisarinna is so desperate on #rhobh she's an embarassment on every episode. @Andy please make her go away she's making the show a joke," posted another fed-up fan.

Two New Jersey Men Held Without Bail for Double Homicide Tied to Kim DePaola's Burned Car


NYDailyNews.com:
The mother of a murdered New Jersey man heckled his alleged killers Tuesday after their arrests in a double homicide linked to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

“Scum!” howled Michele Ryerson, whose son was one of the two young men shot to death inside a white 2015 Audi that was then set ablaze. “You’re scum! I hope you hear me!”

Suspects Clarence Williams, 26, and Gerry Thomas, 28, were both held without bail after entering pleas of not guilty during a video arraignment.

Ryerson said the victims, her son Aaron Anderson and pal Antonio Vega Jr., were targeted for a robbery while driving through crime-ridden Paterson in a car owned by “Housewives” star Kim DePaola.

Matt Jordan Says Todd Tucker & Peter Thomas Coached Him Into Getting $10K From Kenya Moore


Bossip.com:
Matt Jordan is steaming mad at two real housewive’s husbands and he’s throwing them under the bus.
Kenya Moore’s ex who recently called her a “lying sack of s***” for promising him he’d be paid $10,000 to film the reunion but renigged, took to Instagram Live to air out his grievances with not only Kenya but with Peter Thomas and Todd Tucker.

According to Matt, Cynthia Bailey’s ex and Kandi’s husband coached him into getting a $10K payout from Kenya—much like they get from their spouses to film RHOA.
“Bruh, you need to be asking shorty for at least 10% of what she makes, that’s what our ladies give us,” Matt says Peter and Todd allegedly told him in the video obtained by AllAboutTheTea.
“They getting all in my ear. And I’m like, y’all girls are different, my lady is different. That’s dangerous. You guys were married. They were like ‘Yo, Matt, you’re her storyline. You deserve monetary compensation.’”
Matt also once again brought up the allegations that he was promised a $10K check for the RHOA reunion…
“They’re like you’re gonna make ten bands at the reunion. I brought the conversation back to Kenya, I don’t tell her that they said that.”
and added that Todd and Peter betrayed him with their fake friendship. According to Matt Todd told him he loved him but eventually stopped taking his calls and Peter promised him a VIP section during CIAA at his club, but ignored him when he came to town.

'Disgusting and Disgraceful!' Phaedra Parks Lashes Out at 'Trifling' Kenya Moore


People.com:
They’re at it again!

After a season of playing nice and trying to rebuild their friendship, Phaedra Parks reignited her longstanding feud with rival Kenya Moore on Sunday’s all-new episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta —  in an explosive battle filled with low-blows that dug up previous allegations.

It all started on the final night of their Hawaii vacation when Moore, 46, staged a playful “divorce party” for Parks and fellow Housewife Cynthia Bailey — both of whom recently split from husbands Apollo Nida and Peter Thomas, respectively.

“We’re having a celebration for you and Cynthia today,” Moore told Parks upon her arrival. “It’s the ‘I do, I did, I’m done!’ It’s a rebirth party.”

But Parks, ever the Southern Belle, wasn’t exactly in the partying mood. Even though her divorce had been finalized a few days earlier, she was still grieving the loss of her relationship with Nida — having been married for five years before they split in 2014, and the couple share two sons together: Ayden, 6, and Dylan, 3.

“These women are over here like hyenas, mocking the sacrament of marriage. I want no part of this,” Parks explained.

“Do they not respect the institution of marriage and what it stands for?” she asked. “Who makes light of that? They celebrate destruction. And I’ve made it very clear: I do not care to speak with anyone outside you about anything going on with me personally.”

“I don’t want to celebrate my children losing their father,” she added. “It’s just tacky.”

Kim DePaola's Car Is Scene of Double Murder


EOnline.com:
Two people have been found dead in Real Housewives of New Jersey's star Kim DePaola's burned Audi after what appears to be a double homicide.

The victims have not yet been identified. A source told E! News Sunday her son Chris's friend Aaron Anderson was the last person to drive the car, even though he was not supposed to use it, and that his mother has been unable to reach him since the incident. Chris was in California at the time of the killings and headed home after hearing the news.

Police said in a statement that on Friday at around 2 a.m., authorities responded to a call about a car on fire. When they arrived at the scene, they found a vehicle engulfed in flames and two victims who were pronounced dead at the scene.

"The car is burnt to a crisp," the source told E! News. "There's nothing left."

The victims had both been shot in the head execution-style, law enforcement sources told NBC New York. Police said in their statement they were taken to a medical examiner's office to be identified. No arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation.

Kyle Richards Blocks Eden Sassoon on Twitter


BravoTV.com:
Since Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finished filming, the 'Wives have had some time away from one another, so when asked who she's kept in touch with and who she hasn't, Kyle Richards revealed she had to take a social media timeout from one of the ladies.

While getting her hair and makeup done for the Season 7 Reunion, Kyle said, "I had to block Eden [Sassoon]. It’s not that I don’t want her to see my tweets, it’s that I couldn’t hear what she was saying anymore. I can take a lot, but the last, final straw was when she said something mean about my sister, and then did #Grandma, making fun of her, like that’s a bad thing. And I just thought, 'You know what? I just lost every little bit of respect I have for you.'"

Kyle admitted she didn't make a big public show of blocking her and isn't even sure if Eden knows.

"I don’t even know if she’s noticed. We’ll find out today I guess."

Kyle teases that she's only ever blocked one other person from RHOBH "who shall remain nameless." Hmmm...our guess is Brandi Glanville.

Sonja Morgan Talks Secret Weapon for Surviving ‘Real Housewives’ Filming


USmagazine.com:
Where does she get all that energy? The Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan shares with Us Weekly her secret for surviving the grueling days and nights shooting her Bravo reality show: staying properly hydrated.

But Morgan doesn’t do anything without a little pizazz, so normal water doesn’t cut it for the 53-year-old who turns to HFactor water, a hydrogen rich water.  

“When we’re filming Housewives, HFactor is a total lifesaver,” the longtime Housewife tells Us. “I’ve been trying to cut down on coffee and hydrogen water gives me a clean boost of energy. I’m obsessed.”

The jetsetter — who has been actively documenting her current trip to Paris on Instagram — also praises the beverage for being a savior during traveling, explaining that it helps cure her jetlag.

Since the ex-wife to JP Morgan heir John Adams Morgan famously took a pause from drinking during the filming of season 8 in 2016, Morgan has been leading a healthier lifestyle, telling Us Weekly last spring, “I don’t want to be out drinking all night.”  

So while HFactor, which retails for $18 for six waters, has the potential to improve hangovers, that doesn’t seem to be the primary need for the mom to daughter Quincy these days. Instead, she can reap such benefits as improved energy levels and improved circulation.

Sheree Whitfield Finally Closes The Book On Ex-Husband Bob


EOnline.com:
It hasn't been an easy road for Sheree Whitfield and her ex-husband Bob.

Over the years on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we've watched them argue over child support, throw bottles of water on each other out of anger, and eventually go to court over his refusal to pay said child support. When Sheree returned to the series last season after three seasons away, a more contrite Bob came crawling back, hoping to win his way back into her heart, and it seemed as though she might be willing to take him back.

But as the gang's trip to Maui has shown these past few weeks, there is still plenty of hurt lingering in Sheree's heart. And for good reason, with that talk of abuse last week. The "will they or won't they" finally comes to a head in Sunday's episode and, as this exclusive sneak peek proves, it's a tear-jerker moment.

"I want you to have some remorse for what the f--k you did. That's what I want you to have," Sheree tells Bob before bursting into tears. "You just came back like you were there the day before. And that hurt me, Bob. Hurt my kids." As she continues to speak her peace, one gets the sense that this is the first time Sheree's been this honest about how much he hurt her. It's a real punch to the gut.

As usual, Bob doesn't have much to say, leading Sheree to finally end this dance they've been doing for good. "I've been content with it for 10 years," she tells him. "You haven't done anything in 10 years since we separated." And that, as they say, is that.
Elsewhere in the episode, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker decide to bring everyone together for a roast of Peter Thomas, just as he and Cynthia Bailey come to terms with the end of their marriage. Meanwhile, Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks' newfound friendship is put to the test as Kenya hosts a party that has Phaedra feeling seasick on dry land. Oh boy.

Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes Negotiating to Return to 'RHOA' for Season 10


TMZ.com:
Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are deep in negotiations to return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Sources close to production tell us Kim and NeNe both have offers on the table from Bravo for Season 10 this Fall, and we're told the network wants them as full-fledged cast members.

We're told both women are receptive, but there's a problem. Kim's got her own show on Bravo that just started filming ... and NeNe's shooting her own stuff.

We're told Bravo's willing to bend if necessary and hire them as part-time cast members, although that's not ideal. 

We know both want a lot of money, and we don't know if the 2 sides are far apart.

Kim hasn't been a regular on 'Housewives' since season 5, and NeNe bailed after season 8. Members of the existing cast are not all down with the move, but they have no choice.

Welcome back, girls ... maybe.

Stephanie Hollman On Why She Went to Therapy After Joining 'Real Housewives of Dallas'


FOXNews.com:
Stephanie Hollman had no idea she would need what she called “Jesus juice” to survive her first year as a Real Housewife.

The married mother of two joined “The Real Housewives of Dallas” in 2016 where audiences got to witness why the drama seems to always be bigger in Texas. And while Hollman is best recognized as the soft-spoken “girl next door” among the group, she also wasn’t afraid to let loose with the help of best friend, former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Brandi Redmond. 

Fox News: How has your life changed since you first appeared on “Real Housewives of Dallas?” Stephanie Hollman: It’s been a really fun experience... I can say I’ve gotten closer with certain people. I think I’m a stronger person and I have more of a voice. I’m very grateful for the experience and with all the blessings of the show, you also have to take the burdens. But those blessings definitely outweigh the burdens.

Fox News: The entire time you were filming, you were also in therapy with your husband. Why did you reach this decision? Hollman: You know, as soon as I decided to go forward with the show, I realized that statistically, it seems like a lot of these marriages [from reality TV] don’t last. And a lot of families become torn apart. I knew it would have been hard on my marriage, and I just wanted to have somebody to make sure the important things in my life were still prioritized. I was in check with my husband because I wanted to make sure that everything that was important to us was still working. I didn’t want to be part of a statistic for reality TV. I felt it’s good to work on the relationship before there’s a problem. And we still do it! I just think if you don’t work on yourself or your marriage, then you can get lost in that reality TV world… and then the show becomes your life. That’s something I definitely didn’t want to have happened in my life or marriage.

Fox News: Has the therapy helped the marriage in any way? Hollman: I think it’s good for it! First of all, I’m a very big advocate for therapy. It’s good to have somebody to talk to and have a safe space where you can say anything you want and have it be a judgmental-free zone. And it’s good to have someone mediate when there is a conflict. For me, it’s always good because sometimes things get so busy that you don’t have those important conversations and when you do, it’s almost too late. There’s so much hurt.

Cynthia Bailey Fired from 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'?


IBTimes.com:
Brace yourselves, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans. Apparently, model and reality star Cynthia Bailey has reportedly been sacked from the Bravo series. Another housewife is also said to be in the process of being let go by the show.

On Monday, gossip blog Media TakeOut exclusively reported that Bailey has been given the pink slip by “RHOA” producers after learning about it from an unnamed insider. The tabloid did not confirm the credibility of the source, but it did quote the latter as saying, “Usually we wait until after the reunion show to fire the ladies, but [the producers] want to sign new housewives soon — so they’re making budget moves early.”

Media Takeout is known for serving up juicy stories and sometimes very blatant attempts at creating buzz for a celebrity. The owner, former lawyer Fred Mwangaguhunga, has since been interviewed by many mainstream and big entertainment sites about their unnamed sources. In a dialogue with Huffington Post back in 2013, the proud blogger shared that the company has tipsters and celebrities that provide them with exclusive bits, which is the reason why Media Takeout is considered more reliable than The National Enquirer and other tabloids.

If this bit about Bailey is indeed true, then it’s a sad day for her fans who still want to see her on the reality series. Nevertheless, this wouldn’t come as a surprise to many avid viewers of the show because she has a history of getting physical with another housewife. In 2015, Bailey got demoted after kicking Porsha Williams while filming the series, Perez Hilton reported at the time.

While an official statement announcing Bailey’s departure from “RHOA” has yet to surface, promotions for the series continue to mention Bailey and her ex, Peter Thomas. In a recent interview with The Daily Dish, Bailey confirmed that she did not only finalize her divorce with Thomas, she has also moved on and started dating. “You know, we've been separated for over a year, and just this whole process has been a lot, just mentally and emotionally, and I'm not saying, 'Yay, I'm so happy to be divorced, but I'm kind of saying, 'Yay, I'm so happy that it's finally over,” she said.

Dorit Kemsley & Erika Girardi Bring Their Feud to Hong Kong in This Sneak Peek


EOnline.com:
It's safe to say that Dorit Kemsley and Erika Girardi aren't leaving Hong Kong as BFFs.

After a season's worth of simmering tension thanks to Pantygate (ugh) and perceived slights, the ladies will finally reached full boil during the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' big season seven trip abroad—and E! News has the exclusive sneak peek to prove it.

If you've been waiting all season long to see the moment from the superteaser where Erika lets Dorit have it, this one's for you.

So, what exactly brings Erika and Dorit to blows? As with all things this season, Lisa Rinna. Specifically, the "Xanax smoothie" joke and Dorit's reaction to it. While we don't see how it gets brought up as the ladies are enjoying an evening boat ride with the stunning Hong Kong cityscape behind them, the sneak peek does give us a glimpse at Dorit's defense over mentioning it that night in Punta Mita (She was just telling a funny story, silly!) as well as Erika's reasonable rebuttal. "But Dorit, if you didn't feel that the pills or the Xanax smoothie or whatever was possibly part of her behavior, why would you bring it up to us at the table in Mexico?"

Eventually, the pretense of fighting over Rinna falls away and the crux of the matter is revealed: These two women just don't really like each other all that much.

"Let me finish, Dorit," Erika says. "You talk a lot."
"And you don't talk enough," Dorit rebuts, rolling her eyes.

"I say important s--t," Erika snaps back. "You say too much boring s--t." Like we said, we don't see friendship bracelets in this pair's future.

Shereé Whitfield Breaks Down While Confronting Ex-Husband Bob Whitfield About His Alleged Abuse


People.com:
Since The Real Housewives of Atlanta debuted in 2008, Shereé Whitfield hasn’t suffered any fools — always appearing as the strong, confident tough girl and rarely getting vulnerable in front of the cameras.

But on Sunday’s all new episode, the 47-year-old reality star broke down in tears when confronted with what she claimed were memories of the alleged physical abuse she had experienced while married to ex-husband Bob Whitfield.

The emotional moment happened while the two were on vacation in Maui, Hawaii — during an already explosive couple’s trip.

Bob was there as part of his continued efforts to woo Shereé back. The two divorced in 2007 after 7 years of marriage and 14 years together — and have spent the last decade or so involved in legal and emotional squabbles.

While they’ve put most of that behind them, co-parenting and focusing on their friendship as of late, Shereé hasn’t been ready to rekindle their romance just yet. “It’s like ice-skating uphill with Shereé,” Bob explained. “We had a tough road and I f—– it up a little bit. I’ve put a lot of wounds on her, so she’s calloused towards me.”

Shereé’s reluctance, it turns out, was for good reason.

“I feel like he still hasn’t owned up to a lot of things that he did,” Shereé explained to friends Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. “And it’s not just the infidelity — you see how immature he still is.”

Camille Grammer Says She's 'Been Asked' to Return to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'


People.com:
Is an O.G. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member returning to the show?

“It’s something I’ve been toying with the last three years,” Camille Grammer told reporters Saturday at the Family Equality Council’s 2017 Impact Awards in L.A. “I’ve been asked. Maybe next year, we’ll see. You know, after the reunion and after this season, and after casting, we’ll see how they feel about it. We’ll be back and we can all discuss it.”

Grammer, 48, starred in the first two seasons of the hit Bravo show — now in its seventh season — and has appeared as a friend and guest in episodes after she left.

While nothing is set in stone, the TV personality said she has hesitations about jumping back into the spotlight the drama-fueled show shines.

“Well, it’s exposing your personal life, which was very difficult in the first season; I had a very tough time,” said Grammer, whose divorce from actor Kelsey Grammer was documented during her time on the show.

“Going through divorce while shooting a reality show is terrible. Divorce alone is a very hard thing to go through, and having the public weigh in on it makes it worse. It was very tough times for me,” she added. “So the pros and cons are: How much do I want the public to see my life? And also I have two children. I want to protect them from certain things; I’m a very protective mother. Maybe if I was married I’d do it. But as a single mom, I feel more exposed. I don’t have the support. I have a boyfriend, we just started dating the last several months. And again, do I want to throw him into the mix? Oh my god, the craziness of it.”

Kim Richards’ Probation Gets Modified to 450 Hours of Community Service


TheWrap.com:
A Los Angeles court has Kim Richards’ sentence has been modified to 450 hours of community service.

According to E! News, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star must complete the hours by September 7 or she could face jail time. Richards could also avoid jail time by proving that she’s on her way to completing the hours at the deadline.

The reality star missed her initial deadline to complete 20 days of community service and attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. She had originally been sentenced to complete 30 days.

Richards’ lawyer told E! that “Kim is up to date on all her requirements with the court and her probation was reinstated.”

The sentence stems from a 2015 shoplifting arrest. Richards was arrested after attempting to walk out of a Van Nuys, California Target with more than $612 worth of goods. She was charged with a misdemeanor and released on $5,000 bail.

Richards was also banned from the store, prohibited from coming within 100 feet of the store during her three-year probationary period. She also must not possess any narcotics, dangerous or restricted drugs or associated paraphernalia, unless she has a valid prescription.

Cynthia Bailey Explains Why the 'RHOA' Dinner in Hawaii Was Extra Uncomfortable for Her


BravoTV.com:
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Kandi told you what happened with Porsha?
Cynthia Bailey: I was very surprised! Didn't see the drug and rape allegations coming. These are serious allegations, and regardless of whether or not they are true, this stuff lives on social media and the Internet forever. I can understand why Kandi was so hurt and emotional. These ladies were once good friends, and things just went way too far.

Cynthia Bailey: I was very surprised! Didn't see the drug and rape allegations coming. These are serious allegations, and regardless of whether or not they are true, this stuff lives on social media and the Internet forever. I can understand why Kandi was so hurt and emotional. These ladies were once good friends, and things just went way too far.

Bravotv.com: How did you feel about Peter being invited on the trip? Were you nervous at all?
CB: I was fine with Peter coming on the trip as Todd's invited guest. It was a little weird at first to be on a couples' trip with Peter, because although we had been separated for months, we were still married in Hawaii. I wanted him to feel welcome and not be uncomfortable. I really enjoyed hanging out with him as friends. It felt like old times, and we actually spent a lot of time together. He was very respectful of our situation and handled himself with class. 

Bravotv.com: What went through your mind during the dinner in Hawaii?
CB: The dinner was very tough to sit through, and of course I just happened to be seated between Porsha and Kandi, so it was even more uncomfortable for me. Kandi was extremely emotional and very upset. It made me sad to see her crying. I don't like to see any of the ladies cry. I just kept praying that things would not get physical. I did not want to be in the middle of a physical altercation once again.

Meghan King Edmonds Returns to 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'


BlastingNews.com:
Meghan King Edmonds will reportedly return to the cast of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" for the series' upcoming 12th season. Following the confirmation of Heather Dubrow's exit from the show, a source confirms Edmonds, who recently welcomed her first child with former baseball star Jim Edmonds, has been brought back to the series after initial reports suggested she had been let go.

“After almost a month of filming, production decided to bring Meghan back as a full time housewife,” a source explained to The Dirty on March 9. “While this wasn’t an expected move, they decided that there was a missing link in the season and that she was needed to help fill it in.”

Edmonds joined the cast of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" after season nine addition Lizzie Rovsek parted ways with the show after just one year. As fans may recall, Rovsek was brought to the show after the exits of Lydia McLaughlin, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. At the same time, Shannon Beador joined the cast, but after filming season nine, only Beador returned to the show while Rovsek parted ways with her co-stars.

Edmonds and her husband went through the process of in vitro fertilization during season 11 and while it wasn't always easy, the treatments ultimately led Edmonds to conceive and months ago, she welcomed her first child, daughter Aspen. Her husband, Jim, also has four older children from his two previous marriages.

Since welcoming her first child, Edmonds has been sharing tons of photos of herself and her daughter on her Instagram page. In addition to her photos of Aspen by herself, the reality star has also shared a number of photos of Jim and the baby, one of which featured the athlete pushing his baby in a stroller.

Meghan King Edmonds and the cast of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" are expected to return to Bravo TV for season 12 later this year. A premiere date has not yet been announced.

Lisa Vanderpump Rates Dorit Kemsley and Eden Sassoon's Rookie RHOBH Seasons


BravoTV.com:

Lisa Vanderpump has spent seven seasons in the thick of all the drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so she knows a thing or two about how best to navigate all the murky territory that comes along with it. This season, the 90210 crew welcomed two new pals to the group, Eden Sassoon and Dorit Kemsley, and, well, Lisa has some thoughts about their rookie seasons.

First up, Lisa offered up her performance review of Eden's role in the never-ending Lisa Rinna-Kim Richards drama, in which the soap star denied and then later owned up to comments she made about Kim's sobriety to Eden. "Well Eden was very much on the periphery really as a friend of the Housewives, and then suddenly she became immersed right in the middle of a kind of firestorm so to speak," Lisa said. "I don't think Rinna really thought that Eden would repeat it, so therefore it wouldn't have come to light until the reunion. And the fact that Eden repeated it then kicked everything off."

As for her longtime pal, Dorit, Lisa admits that perhaps the transition has been slightly more difficult. Still, she couldn't help but include a little sassy message for the newbies. "Well I think it might be overwhelming right at the beginning," she said. "But I also think it's accumulative. I don't think you have that huge following until you've been on a show quite a few years, so I think you can adapt to it slowly. But you know I think everybody they should be thankful to join a reality show that's a hit reality show is a luxury... it's a luxury, really, for some of these new girls to come in and the show's a hit show."

Carole Radziwill Opens Up About John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette's Deadly Plane Crash


EOnline.com:
Some phone calls simply cannot be forgotten about.

More than 17 years after her cousin-in-law John F. Kennedy Jr. and best friend Carolyn Bessette passed away, Carole Radziwill is reliving some of the biggest moments leading up to their infamous plane crash.

In a sneak peek of HLN's docu-series How It Really Happened, the Real Housewives of New York star revealed her final conversation with Carolyn that leaves her with a wide variety of emotions.

"Carolyn called me from the plane right before they were taking off. And I think it was probably a little bit after 8:00," she shared in a sneak peek obtained by the Daily Mail. "I don't remember anything really important from that conversation. I didn't certainly think it would be the last time I would speak to my friend."

"I remember at the end she said, you know, ‘I love you.' And, I don't know, for some reason I didn't say I love you back and that always stuck with me," Carole shared. "And she said 'I'll call you when I land.' And then that was the last I ever heard from her or anyone."

Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile Axed From 'Real Housewives of New Jersey'


PageSix.com:
A cast shake-up is coming for Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” We’re told that original cast member Jacqueline Laurita is out, as well as longtime star Kathy Wakile.

Insiders say that Laurita — who has been a fixture on the show since it premiered back in 2009 — is departing after the network declined to cough up as much per episode as she had hoped for. “She’s really highly paid,” an insider told Page Six.

Meanwhile, sources say Wakile — who had been a member of the main cast for three seasons before becoming a part-timer last season — is disappointed to learn that she won’t be back at all for Season 8, we hear. Laurita’s departure means that Teresa Giudice will be the only member of the team to have appeared in all eight seasons of the hit show — no small feat considering that she spent one of them in prison.

It was recently reported that the series’ controversial star Danielle Staub — who appeared in the first two seasons — is to make a return.

Bravo declined to comment.

Bethenny Frankel Streaks and Jill Zarin Returns in Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Trailer


People.com:
After an explosive eighth season filled with shocking allegations, health scares and bitter battles, the ladies of the Real Housewives of New York City are back — and PEOPLE has the first look at the season 9 trailer!

Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan are all returning for another lap around the city that never sleeps — picking up the pieces where they left off for a new round of fun, feuds and fights.

They’re not the only alums coming back to the show. Original New York Housewife Jill Zarin will also be making an appearance during the season — her first since leaving the show at the end of season 4. And it appears she’s just as opinionated as ever.

“That is so obnoxious,” the Zarin Fabrics matriarch proclaims in the trailer.

Joining the ladies is new Housewife Tinsley Mortimer, a socialite, fashion designer and reality TV personality brought in to replace Jules Wainstein — last season’s new Housewife who became embroiled in a contentious divorce after the show finished filming and decided to leave the show.
Like most Housewives, Mortimer is coming to the show with some baggage of her own.

“She had her whole world at her fingertips and it kind of crashed and burned,” Frankel explains of Mortimer, who was arrested this past April for trespassing on her ex-boyfriend’s property in Palm Beach, Florida.

Now back in the Big Apple where her career began, Mortimer will be focusing on starting her new chapter — but she won’t be the only one. Frankel is picking up the pieces of her life now that her divorce is finally finalized, while Singer is dating and celebrating the big 6-0. And despite continued rumors about her finacé’s infidelity, De Lesseps is finally walking down the aisle with Tom D’Agostino.

Kandi Burruss Shows the Receipts About Porsha Williams


People.com:
Kandi Buruss and Porsha Williams had one of the most outrageous face-offs in Real Housewives of Atlanta history recently, with Burruss revealing the two shared a late-night dance-floor make out session that prompted Williams to ask if the two could have sex.

But while Williams responded with a series of shocking allegations — including that Burruss had a sex dungeon, had previously been involved in a seven year relationship with a woman, and was currently being cheated on by her husband, Todd Tucker — Bravo editors saved the most outrageous claim for Sunday’s all-new episode.

There, Williams claimed that she had hear rumors that Burruss and Tucker had planned on drugging her and their mutual friend Shamea Morton in order to bring them back to their house.

Both Burruss and Morton denied Williams’ explosive accusation. But the claim was especially hurtful for Burruss — who explained how harmful the rumors are to her reputation.

“That really bothered me because I’ve been in the music industry since I was a kid and people get into the whole drug and drinking thing,” the 40-year-old Grammy winner explained. “I was always determined that was not going to be me, so I take offense!”

“It’s just been boilin’ my blood,” Burruss continued. “Because if she’s out there telling people this mess, that could ruin my life. So I have to let people know that this bitch is full of s—.”

Burruss had her chance to prove her point to Williams and the rest of the Atlanta Housewives when the group went on a trip to Maui, Hawaii, together — with their husbands, ex-husbands, and boyfriends coming around for the ride.

When confronted about the slanderous things she’s said, Williams held firm that she was “not a liar” — telling Burruss, “You were saying some things about me that I felt were lies, and then I felt I needed to come to you with truth. And that’s what I did.”

Tinsley Mortimer is Struggling to Ingratiate Herself on 'Real Housewives of New York City'


PageSix.com:
Newest “Real Housewives of New York City” cast member Tinsley Mortimer is struggling to ingratiate herself with her newfound New York friends upon her return from exile in Palm Beach, Fla.

Last month, Page Six reported that Mortimer, the top New York society swan, desperately wants to return to her throne as the town’s No. 1 socialite and hoped that her role on Bravo’s “Real Housewives” would help catapult her back to the top.

It seems that things aren’t off to a great start.

We’re told that the Tins has raised the ire of her fellow “Housewives” by failing to live up their lofty standards of proper etiquette.

In particular, the erstwhile queen of high society has offended the group by accepting longtime cast member Sonja Morgan’s hospitality — Mortimer has been staying with Morgan while filming the show — without coughing up a gift.

“If you’re a socialite — never mind a ‘socialite,’ if you’re a human — if you’re a guest at someone’s home, you buy them a bottle of wine, or at least a card,” said a source familiar with the brouhaha.

Or as co-star and former countess LuAnn De Lesseps (now LuAnn D’Agostino after her recent wedding) so memorably noted in her 2010 single of the same name, “Money can’t buy you class.”

We’re told that Ramona Singer has boldly taken the matter in hand and confronted Mortimer — who was once married to Topper Mortimer and was arrested for trespassing in Palm Beach last year during a dispute with her ex-boyfriend Nico Fanjul — about the faux pas.

Bethenny Frankel on Boyfriend Dennis Shields: 'I’m Not Ready To Be Linked To Any One Person'


People.com:
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Bethenny Frankel admits she’ll likely be alone on Tuesday night instead of with Dennis Shields, her boyfriend of the past year.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, who has famously sharing her romantic struggles on camera, is taking a break from their romance — but she’s not calling it a breakup.

“He’s still in my life,” she says. “I saw him last week for his birthday, but I’m not ready to settle down right now.”

Adds Frankel, 46: “The truth is, the world made it into something more than either of us have.”

“I care about him but the bottom line is he’s still married,” she notes. (Shields is in the process of divorcing his wife of more than 20 years.) “And I don’t want to stop the music yet. I’m not ready to be linked to any one person.”

“I’ve known him for 27 years and I care about him, but I’m keeping my options open,” she says. “I don’t know what the future holds.”

Still, she adds, “It’s not a heartbreak story, it’s a heart healing story.”

Erika Jayne Talks Excitement For 'Dancing With the Stars'


EOnline.com:
Erika Girardi is about to pull reality TV double-duty and by the looks of it, she couldn't be more thrilled.

The Bravo fan-fave is currently appearing in her second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the show's seventh, and like co-star Lisa Vanderpump before her, she's gearing up to let her alter ego Erika Jayne loose on the dance floor as a part of the just-announced Dancing With the Stars season 24 cast. 

And as she told E! News just after the entire cast appeared on Good Morning America for the big reveal, she's waiting on whatever advice LVP (or any of her other co-stars, for that matter) might have to offer.
"Not yet," she admitted when we asked if she'd heard from any of her cast mates. "I'm sure they'll be on the phone as soon as we finish. Call me, girls!"

While Erika may be Ms. Girardi on RHOBH, she told us that when she and partner Gleb Savchenko begin their quest for the mirrorball trophy, it'll be all Erika Jayne all the time. "Oh, it's all Erika Jayne," she laughed. "Erika Girardi isn't even here. We left her at home."
