Bethenny Frankel talks 'Bethenny and Fredrik,' Her Influence on 'Real Housewives' and New Business Learnings
Bethenny Frankel doesn't have time to think about her hair, thank you very much.

When I sat down with the original "Real Housewives of New York" cast member last week, she was in the midst of a pre-Super Bowl celebration with Febreze, preparing for the series premiere of "Bethenny and Fredrik," in-between filming for the upcoming tenth season of "RHONY" and celebrating the launch of Skinnygirl Jeans.

And those are just the newest developments in her life. So, when I remarked that her hair had never looked better (really, it looks phenomenal!), Frankel seemed surprised.

"I don’t think about it that much!" she said with a laugh and, well, I believed her.

Which, of course, is nothing new. For six of the nine seasons of "The Real Housewives of New York" (she left the show for three seasons before a much-heralded return), Frankel has been the woman that viewers can count on to tell it like it is -- no holds barred. With Bethenny, there's no beating around the bush, no passive aggressive behavior and no bullshit. She doesn't have time for it; she never has, and she never will.

"Andy [Cohen] told me years and years ago that I might have been the one who wasn’t married or the broke one, but they had me come on as the sort of Greek chorus or the narrator," she told me.

Shannon Beador Pushes Back Nasty Child Support Battle With Ex-Husband David
Shannon Beador asked the court for more time as she continues her nasty legal battle with her cheating ex for spousal support and physical custody of her three daughters, according to documents obtained exclusively by

Shannon and David were supposed to appear in court last week for a hearing concerning her request for child and spousal support, but she asked for a continuance on the matter. According to court minutes, the Real Housewives of Orange County star phoned in a request on Jan. 24 to push back the hearing to next month.

Shannon is asking a Orange County Superior Court judge to grant her physical custody of their three daughters, Sophie, 16 and twin girls, Stella and Adeline, 13. She is also seeking spousal support from David, but is asking for joint legal custody of the girls.

The former couple, who were married on Sept. 16, 2000, renewed their marriage vows in front of the Housewives cast and their friends and family in an elaborate ceremony that played out in front of cameras.

They finally called it quits after several attempts to repair their marriage after it was revealed on the show that David had cheated on Shannon.

The couple announced their separation in September 2017, with Shannon filing for divorce on December 1, 2017.

The two are scheduled to return to court on March 12 to discuss Shannon’s requests.

Kenya Moore Storms Away from RHOA Cameras During Filming
A psychic predicted last week she might not be around the group for much longer. And on Sunday’s all-new Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore proved that reading to be right — storming out of filming and flipping off the Bravo cameras while telling producers “I’m done with this.”

“I didn’t come to constantly be dragged in the mud,” she shouted after being confronted about her bad behavior during a disastrous dinner with Housewives Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, their sisters and frequent RHOA guest Shamea Morton.

“I don’t give a f—. I don’t give a f— about any of them bitches,” Moore continued. “Every time I do something positive it turns into some b——-.”

Moore, 46, had been accused by Morton and others in the group for being rude during the women’s trip to Houston, where (among other volunteer activities) they worked to rebuild houses for Hurricane Harvey victims with Habitat for Humanity.

“I wasn’t rude to nobody at that event. F— these m———— hoes,” Moore screamed at her producer. “The whole table is f—— stupid as s—.”

She then blamed her cast mates for the reason why her husband, Marc Daly, has yet to appear on the show.

“That’s why Marc don’t wanna be part of this. Because every time you turn around and trash his f—— wife,” Moore said. “Sick of it! I don’t f—— gotta do s— no more. Take my m———— mic off.”

Lisa Rinna Dishes On The Season 1 #RHOBH Wives

Eva Marcille Has No Time Her 'RHOA' Co-Stars' Drama
Eva Marcille may be joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but that doesn't mean she has any interest in her co-stars' pre-existing feuds.

E! News caught up with the America's Next Top Model winner ahead of her debut episode, airing Sunday, Jan. 28, at the launch of Urban Skin Rx at Target stores, and when we asked for her two cents on the bitter fighting going on between Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her enemies Kenya Moore and NeNe Leakes, she made it clear that she has no time for that.

"Life is a lot of drama. I don't have a take because I don't invest in it," she said. "It can be very nasty. I don't major in the minor. I have a three year who's turning four at the end of this month and then a child due in two months and a wedding to plan and a home to outfit and a city to learn so I have a lot more on my plate than to worry about people's perceptions of each other. It's so trivial to me."

So, how'd she get dragged into this messy circle in the first place? It all came down to her re-location to the ATL and her longtime friendship with the Queen of Bloop, honey. "Actually, it was kind of an organic move. I moved to Atlanta, my fiancé was running for mayor and I found myself back and forth to Atlanta over the past two and half to three years. And then more so when he was running so I decided to make the big move. I moved myself and my daughter to Atlanta," she told us. "And I've known Nene Leakes for years and she was one of my first calls when I moved here. I was like, ‘Hey, I'm moving back to Atlanta, I'm older now, I don't know anyone. Where do I go, what do I do? Where's my gym, what's my spa, who's my nail tech?' And she goes, ‘I'll teach you everything.' So that was my segue into Housewives. She introduced me to some of her friends. She took me to some of the venues here, including Kandi's restaurant. Kandi [Burruss] has a son who's a little younger than my daughter, but we're both moms of toddlers so it was an organic fit."
While she may hope to stay above the fray, the dramatic midseason trailer hints at some entanglement with Cynthia Bailey's suspicious new beau Will. "This man crazy," we see her tell NeNe. "Like, 5150 crazy." Does she know something about his player ways? It looks like it. We'll have to tune in to find out what sort of dish she comes ready to drop.

Lisa Vanderpump On How She's Taken Advantage Of Being A Reality TV Star
She laughed before pausing and dropping her voice to a whisper. “Then, I got it. Everywhere you go people stare at you and are very aware of you being on the show,” she said. “You start to choose your vacation based on where the show wasn’t aired. You start to live your life differently.”

The show, of course, is Bravo’s hit reality series “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” now in its eighth season, which chronicles the boozing and brawling among a group of privileged female frenemies in the luxurious Los Angeles enclave.

It has helped transform Ms. Vanderpump from glamorous restaurateur into an avatar of the city’s obsession with wealth, good looks and success.

She is also the producer of the popular spinoff “Vanderpump Rules.” That show focuses on the mudslinging between the hard-drinking staff at her restaurant SUR, which she owns with her husband, Ken Todd.

Ms. Vanderpump, however, made it clear that she’s not complaining. She not only embraces her peculiar form of fame, she also capitalizes on it.

Ms. Vanderpump uses her celebrity to promote her restaurants (she is also an owner of Villa Blanca); the magazine Beverly Hills Lifestyle, of which she is editor; and most recently Vanderpump Rosé, a libation that matches her feminine and bubbly worldview. It’s a fitting tie-in. During one recent season, her tag line during the show’s title sequence was “Life isn’t all diamonds and rosé. But it should be.”

Teresa Giudice Has Harsh Words About Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita Possibly Rejoining RHONJ
As is tradition, once a Real Housewives show wraps up its reunion, all eyes turn to the season ahead. For The Real Housewives of New Jersey season nine, that could mean an infusion of new (or familiar) faces. Siggy Flicker already announced her exit, claiming she got a bad edit, and rumors are already swirling that the Garden State series could be bringing back original cast members Caroline Manzon and Jacqueline Laurita to shake things up.

"Maybe if they both come back it's because they need the money," Teresa Giudice told E! News. "But, I mean, whatever, bring it on. I could give two s—ts if they come back. Do I want to reconcile being friends with them again? No. They're both evil people and I really don't want anything to do with evil people. I don't, but if I have to give them a piece of my mind I will."

Teresa cited Caroline cozying up with her own family as a plot just for the show because she's a "money hungry bitch."

As for Siggy, who said, "After much reflection and Bravo's support, I have decided that this will be my last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I am grateful to the network for allowing me to be part of this successful franchise and wish only the best for Teresa, Melissa, Dolores, Danielle and Margaret. At this time, I want to focus on my beautiful family, my growing business and some exciting new projects," Teresa said she's not shocked that Siggy quit the show.
"It's not for everyone. You've got to have thick skin in this business," Teresa said.

Lauri Peterson's Son Joshua Set To Go On Trial For Attempted Murder
The attempted-murder trial for Joshua Waring, son of former "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Lauri Peterson, is expected to begin Monday with jury selection.
Waring, 29, is facing three counts of attempted murder and other felony and misdemeanor charges in connection with a shooting at a former sober-living home in Costa Mesa in June 2016, according to Orange County Superior Court records.

Waring could face multiple life sentences if convicted.

His mother was a cast member on Bravo's Orange County-based reality TV series from its debut in 2006 until 2008.
A man identified only as Daniel L. was seriously injured in the shooting in the 2900 block of Babb Street.

Witnesses told police that Waring had left the house, described as a "drug crash pad," after a confrontation with a resident but returned around 2:30 a.m. June 20 in a BMW X3 belonging to his girlfriend, authorities said. Shots were fired at three people outside, authorities said.
Waring was arrested about eight hours later after a police pursuit through Santa Ana.

How Teresa Giudice Found Out Melissa Gorga Was Joining ‘Real Housewives’
Although they’re sisters-in-law, Melissa Gorga wasn’t who told Teresa Giudice she would be joining the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast full-time for Season 3.

“I get a phone call from Andy Cohen that Melissa and Kathy [Wakile] are going to be the new ‘Housewives,’ and I’m like, ‘What? I just talked to them,'” Teresa said on “The Morning Breath” live show Thursday night in New York City. “I was surprised. You don’t do that. That’s not cool with family.”

Teresa said her time behind bars helped her move “past” her feud with Melissa.

“I just forgot about everything with Melissa, and I’m glad I did because it made my parents happy and now I don’t have my mom anymore,” Teresa, 45, shared. “I’ll take going away 10 more times, I just wish I never lost my mom.”

Teresa and Joe Gorga‘s mother passed away in March at age 66.

Meghan King Edmonds Is Leaving 'Real Housewives of Orange County' to Focus on Family & Pregnancy
Meghan King Edmonds is hanging up her Housewives hat.

On Tuesday, the Real Housewives of Orange County star announced that she’s stepping away from the Bravo show after three seasons, explaining her “bittersweet” decision in a lengthy blog post.

“I arrived at this multi-faceted decision after much thought, and then I thought some more,” she said. “As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll: I’m literally filming my real life in real time and engaged in situations and circumstances which can be contentious. Then, when the show airs, we relive some trying of the most trying moments in our lives and then endure the public’s reaction; we never come out as winners to every viewer.”

Edmonds, 33, also said the show took a “physical toll” on her as she underwent IVF treatments in season 11, and experienced the busy life of a new mom after welcoming daughter Aspen King Edmonds in season 12.

“Filming is grueling!” she admitted. “After my first season I knew what to expect for round two, but even still, filming during IVF and then the beginning of pregnancy during my second season was difficult. I was hormonal and tired all the time. But my third season takes the cake: I had a newborn and had to hire a full time live-in nanny (my cousin) so as to allow me the flexibility to meet my obligations of continuous days and long hours of filming, traveling, etc.”

“My mind was often foggy as I filmed but I put on a great face and did it because I loved being a Housewife and was so grateful for my opportunity,” she said.
Isn't this the second time that she announced that she's leaving 'RHOC'?

Brandi Glanville Slams Former Flame Gerard Butler
If you were hoping for former flames Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler to get back together, we've got some bad news for you. After Butler seemed embarrassed to talk about his past fling with Brandi on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week, she has penned a fiery response to the movie star on her blog, Bicoastal Beauty Unfiltered

Brandi shared that she has been inspired by the #MeToo and Time's Up movements to speak out about Butler's comments, although she made it clear that no sexual misconduct took place between her and Butler. "I would like to make something crystal f---ing clear to you, your behavior the other night, publicly acting as if you were embarrassed to have ever met me or had relations with me as if I were some horrid decrepit troll is not only disgusting but unacceptable. #Timesup on this kind of behavior. Just a little advice for you moving forward Scorpio to Scorpio: Respect the women you invite into your bed and into your life. Whether you know their last name or not! Whether they are famous or not! Just be a proper human being," Brandi wrote in the blog post published on January 22. "With the Me Too movement I have found my voice again and I refuse to stay quiet. I may not have been sexually harassed but I have been humiliated, embarrassed, financially tortured and emotionally abused by men in power, in my work life and by men like you in my personal life."

Brandi went on to explain why she initially brought up Butler when asked to name the most famous person she's hooked up with on WWHL in 2012. "At that time you were kind of a big thing so I said your name. I then was asked on a scale from 1-10 what would I rate you as a lover. I very kindly said an 11. I was completely caught off guard obviously not expecting any of these questions and the moment after I answered them I regretted it," she shared. "So the rating of an 11 I gave you as a lover was a knee jerk reaction peace offering for having blurted out your name. I could have actually just told the truth." 

Butler said in the January 17 episode of WWHL that he had "no idea" Brandi was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when he first met her years ago. "And I kept saying, 'What do you do?' She goes, 'It doesn't matter. It's not important,'" he told Andy Cohen. "Anyway, we hung out, we had fun, and then I never saw her again. Suddenly, I was walking down the street with a director and these guys from TMZ go, 'Hey, what about you and Brandi Glanville?' And I'm like, 'Who's Brandi Glanville?' because I didn't even know her last name ... She got pretty upset."
"MeToo"?!? From the same chick who said on live TV that Joanna Krupa's vagina was 'smelly'? Right.

Camille Grammer Questions Dorit Kemsley's Drinking After Drunken C-Word Slur
Dorit Kemsley has made her fair share of enemies during her short time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, butting heads with Erika Girardi, Lisa Rinna and former Housewife Eileen Davidson in her first season alone. And now, she can add two other names to that list: Camille Grammer and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.

On Tuesday’s all-new episode, Kemsley, 41, found herself in the hot seat with her two castmates. And judging from the previews for next week, it doesn’t look like a reconciliation is coming anytime soon.

For Grammer, it all started days earlier at Kyle Richards‘ home. There for a dinner party with Richards, Kemsley, and company, Grammer was on her best behavior — this being the first time she was introducing boyfriend (and now fiancé) David C. Meyer to the group.

Things quickly got uncomfortable for Grammer though when Kemsley, who had consumed a little too much alcohol, began rambling about inappropriate things.

“Camille, you’re a stupid c—,” she screamed at one point, seemingly out of nowhere and to the shock of everyone at the table.

The comment didn’t sit well with Grammer. “Dorit, everyone’s allowed to act stupid once in awhile, but you really abuse the privilege,” Grammer told audiences. “Honestly at this point, I don’t give two s—- about you. But I care about what David thinks, because if I’m associating with the rantings of a crazed drunk woman, it makes me look bad.”

The bank notice seeks to recover possession of two properties next door to each other in Englewood, according to Page Six.

Josephs formerly resided in Tenafly. Her home there was featured in a 2014 issue of (201) Magazine, a publication of the North Jersey Media Group.

Jill Zarin Reacts to the "Overwhelming Love" From Her Real Housewives Family After Husband Bobby's Death
Jill Zarin is expressing gratitude for the love and support she continues to receive from family and friends.

After Bobby Zarin passed away at 71 from a long battle with cancer, several members of the Real Housewives franchise have touched the family with their acts of kindness.

"Overwhelming love," Jill shared with E! News exclusively when describing the outreach from her reality TV family. "Ramona Singer has been incredible. She texts me, she e-mails me, she showed up at the hospital early on. All the Housewives."

The reality star continued, "I've gotten flowers from Vicki Gunvalson. I got an e-mail today from Melissa Gorga. Cynthia Bailey wanted to come [to the funeral]. Andy Cohen gave a shout out to Bobby [by] giving him the Mazel of the Week."

Jill also expressed gratitude to many other friends including Wendy Williams for her "beautiful tribute" during "Hot Topics" earlier this week.
Another thing that left the Zarin family feeling grateful was the amount of people who showed up to remember Bobby at his funeral service Monday morning in New York. Patti Stanger, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Danielle Staub, Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Bensimon were just some of the familiar faces who paid their respects. 

"It was very surreal to walk in and have all these people around me," Jill shared with E! News. "People who I haven't seen in 20 years showed up. People flew in from as far as Ghana, Florida, California, Chicago, all over the place. They all dropped what they were doing and they came."

Kyle Richards Bawls Over Family Feud With Sisters Kim and Kathy
Kyle Richards opened up about her strained relationship with her sisters.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star broke down while at lunch with co-star Dorit Kemsley as she talked about how she couldn't share good news with her sisters Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton.

The sisters had a falling out after Richards sold a show, American Woman, based on their mother's life 1970s, according to The Daily Mail.

The conversation was brought up after Richards announced she had sold two more shows, but felt like she could not call her sisters to share the good news.

"I am going to cheer you on like your own mother would," Kemsley said, referencing Richards' late mother Kathleen. Richards then suddenly started crying.

"Every time that Kathy succeeded or Kim or I did, my mom would always say, 'This is a feather in all of our caps. We're a team. We always stick together,' " Richards said.
Richards then said she used to be in daily contact with sisters Kathy, 58, and Kim, 53, until she took on her TV project as executive producer.

"But after producing American Woman, it's changed. It has. I just want to be able to explain to them that these shows are inspired by my life, not theirs,"she said.

American Woman is set to premiere June 7 on the Paramount Network, with Alicia Silverstone attached to play the role of Kathleen Richards.

You inspire those around you to be the best they can be. I will never forget you... your legacy lives on through your beautiful children and grandchildren."

Kandi Burruss Denies Ever Trying To Proposition Kim Zolciak
Drama from this season’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is spilling over to social media.

During Sunday’s episode, in which Kim Zolciak alleged co-star Kandi Burruss propositioned her for oral sex, the Xscape singer lashed out at the mother of six on Twitter.

“I’m sick of these bitches lying on me,” Burruss, 41, tweeted. “@KimZolciak I have NEVER wanted you or your box. And stop swearing on your kids while you’re telling lies. Lying ass bitch.”

In the Jan. 14 installment, Zolciak, 39, dished about Burruss while conversing with co-star Shereé Whitfield.

“On my kids’ life, if God strikes me dead, I wouldn’t let her,” Zolciak said, per People. “I’m not saying that to be mean, I’m telling you the f–king truth.”

Burruss shaded the “Don’t Be Tardy” star’s return to the ATL, saying, “Somebody’s really reaching for a permanent peach here … This is my house. You’re just a visitor!”

“If anybody is lying it’s you @Kandi You and your husband [Todd Tucker] are full on swingers f–king all kinds of girls and can NEVER admit it,” Zolciak posted. “And bitch if it weren’t for me there would be no house. Remember I built this house!”

Brandi Glanville Splits from Boyfriend, Blames Social Media
Brandi Glanville‘s romance with Donald Friese has come to an end.

The 45-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum revealed Friday that she is officially single — and social media is partially to blame.

“Social media is ruining romance! It ruined mine,” Glanville tweeted with a broken heart emoji.

“Is official I’m SINGLE!” the mother of two wrote in a second tweet. “He is all urs IG hoes! He is lovely so be nice.”

Glanville and Friese met on Tinder and made their red carpet debut at a pre-Grammys party in February 2017, making things official after dating for five months.

“He’s the girl in the relationship,” Glanville joked to Entertainment Tonight at the event. “Everything’s been very good,” added Friese. “She’s very happy. We’re having a great time.”

Melissa Gorga Reveals ‘Shady' Management Issues Led to Family's Restaurant Closing
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga is setting the record straight about the surprising news that her family restaurant is closing less than a year after opening.

Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza, owned and operated by her husband Joe Gorga with help from her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, will soon shut its doors in East Hanover, New Jersey—which Melissa claims is due to a combination of management issues and demand that exceeded the ability of the small location.

“I can speak about it mildly because it’s a major situation unfortunately,” she said during an appearance on The Morning Breath show on Wednesday. “I will admit one thing: We are overwhelmed with the amount of people that are going. We had no idea it was going to be as busy as it is; that’s first of all.”

“Second of all, yes, there are partners, obviously, that we’ve gone into it with,” she added, later elaborating: “We were having issues with the management and the way they were running it. There were a couple shady things going on.”

Though the reality star wouldn’t get into further detail about the issues with their business partners, she assured that this isn’t the end of the road for the family’s restaurant endeavors. “There is going to be a larger location,” she said. “The food’s amazing, the concept’s amazing, we need to regroup and make it bigger and go down the street and do it solely on our own.”

NeNe Leakes Reacts to Shereé Whitfield Bringing Up Her Old Mugshot
On Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta, there wasn't just chatter about Shereé Whitfield's man, who is currently serving time in jail, but there was also talk of NeNe Leakes' mugshot. That particular piece of information was mentioned by Shereé after she learned what NeNe had been saying about her boyfriend to the group —  in particular, that NeNe shared that she heard that he is a "con artist" (moment, below).

When NeNe stopped by the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Clubhouse on Sunday, she shared how she feels about Shereé discussing her mugshot. "I really don't care about Shereé bringing up a mugshot," she told Andy Cohen. She then dived a little more into the topic, as you can see in the video above.

Prior to this, both Kenya Moore and longtime pal Kim Zolciak-Biermann discussed Shereé's romance, which has been a hot topic this season. "I've known for Shereé for over 15 years. She's a very closed-off type person. She doesn't trust easily and for obvious reasons and I think, honestly, she seems really happy," Kim told The Daily Dish last November. "And also she has a relationship with somebody who's emotionally gotten to know her."

Lynne Curtin’s Divorce Case Gets Dismissed After She Fails to Follow Up
Lynne Curtin — who appeared in a few seasons of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” — is still a married woman because a judge has thrown out her divorce case.

Lynne filed for divorce from her husband Frank Curtin in 2012 citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple was married in 1990 and they have two kids together, both of whom were featured on “RHOC.”

Over the years, Frank never appeared in court or responded to the divorce filing and neither did Lynne. The court notified the reality star the case would be dismissed because it had been inactive for five years, but she still didn’t show up to court.

As a result, on December 8, the divorce was thrown out and Lynne is still officially married to her husband.

We reached out to Lynne several times to find out what happened — so far, no word back.

Why Camille Grammer Is Back On The Beach After Skin Cancer Diagnosis
After being diagnosed with skin cancer and having a malignant growth removed, Camille Grammer is defending her decision to step back into the sun.

Posting a bikini selfie on Thursday, she wrote, “No makeup heading up to the beach. Sunblock on. Close up and impersonal 😉 And to those who question why I’m in the sun after skin cancer.. I still want to enjoy the surf and sun. Seems crazy rt but my skin cancer was located where the sun doesn’t shine go figure. I’m still here! And I went out in the surf for a couple of hours yesterday. I caught a few waves on my SUP and it as so much fun!! Living life before it’s too late. Don’t give up your fight!! [sic].”

The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 49, spent the holidays with her children in Hawaii. Their trip came just weeks after she revealed that she had been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, the second-most common type of skin cancer, and had a small malignancy removed. Sources told Page Six that the newly engaged star was in “good spirits” at her Bravo show’s premiere party last month.

“She’s grateful for all the support and suggests everyone listen to their bodies and trust their instincts,” Grammer’s rep told us after the star’s surgery.

She was previously diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2013 and underwent a radical hysterectomy in June 2014.

Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga's N.J. Restaurant to Close
Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza is closing its doors less than one year since opening.

The restaurant, owned and operated by Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe Gorga with help from his wife, Melissa Gorga, and sister, Teresa Giudice, will be no longer in East Hanover, New Jersey after launching it in May.

But the Gorga/Guidices insist they are not giving up the restaurant game just yet.

“They are in the process of closing down that location. They are looking for a bigger space, more conducive to the original vision that they had for the restaurant,” Giudice and Gorga’s lawyer James J. Leonard told PEOPLE about the eatery, which was a tribute to Joe and Teresa’s parents Giancinto and Antonia, who passed away in March.

“They are in the process of looking to secure new management to help basically execute that vision and make what their dreams were more of a reality. This particular space was small and just wasn’t really conducive to what they were looking to do,” Leonard said.

As for where the new establishment will be located, the family attorney could not disclose the exact city. “I would predict it would be in the North Jersey area,” he shared.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Stars Lead New Weekly After Show
Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been packed with drama — but it’s nothing compared to what cast members like NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, Cynthia Bailey, Shereé Whitfield, Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore will be spilling this year on

The Atlanta Housewives are banning together for The Real Housewives of Atlanta After Show, an all-new weekly web series that will be available to stream online each Sunday directly after the hit Bravo show. PEOPLE has the exclusive first look at the series — and some of the tea the ladies will be spilling each week.

Of course, the ongoing feud between Moore and Zolciak-Biermann has everyone talking. “She brings the negativity with her,” says Moore, while Zolciak-Biermann tells Whitfield that she’s “a threat” and “Kenya needs some help.”

Leakes also has some things to say about Whitfield’s new incarcerated boyfriend. “Tyrone?” she asks. “Honey, he is in prison!”

Whitfield doesn’t seem to mind, though. “I really just don’t give a s— what everybody thinks!” she says.

Nene Leakes Believes Two Ladies Should Leave ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’
And here we go again; Nene Leakes has revealed that it is time for the Real Housewives of Atlanta to update the cast and get rid of two ladies. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams may need to secure their peaches.

According to Mrs. Leakes, two co-stars are dull, and their storylines have run their courses.

Not only does Leakes want Bravo to fire two of her former friends, but she has also already selected two new spicy and exciting stars to join RHOA, who could be her BFF Marlo Hampton and Eva Marcille Pigford.

The TV personality and business mogul revealed: “If I had it my way, I would get rid of two girls. In my opinion, yes, the cast should be changed up a bit. If I had it my way, I would get rid of two girls and bring in two new ones for some kind of excitement. You know, after a while with some of the ladies, they just don’t have it anymore, they don’t have anything going on exciting enough to be a main cast member.”

However when Leakes was asked to share the tow names she declined.

She said: “But I better keep who I think should go to myself because the moment I say anything, all hell breaks loose.”

Siggy Flicker Talks Leaving 'RHONJ': 'I've Never Been So Happy With My Decision'
Siggy Flicker has no regrets about her decision to quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The professional matchmaker, who joined the Bravo reality series in season seven, announced she will not return after the current eighth season concludes. 

"After much reflection and Bravo's support, I have decided that this will be my last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Flicker said in a statement to Bravo's blog. "I am grateful to the network for allowing me to be part of this successful franchise and wish only the best for Teresa, Melissa, Dolores, Danielle and Margaret. At this time, I want to focus on my beautiful family, my growing business and some exciting new projects."

Flicker's decision to bid farewell to The Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn't really come as a surprise given her previous statements about her co-stars. Besides calling them "poison," she also painted herself as the outsider this season-- suggesting that everyone will turn against her.

Speaking to Radar, Flicker said, "I've never been so happy with my decision.'

"Everybody was stacked up against me," she explained. "I love Bravo and I love Andy Cohen but at the end of the day all the odds were stacked up against me and I chose my family."

Despite the turn of events, Flicker claims she doesn't regret joining RHONJ.
"I made the right decision and I would do it all over again," said Flicker, who also criticized the poor editing she got on the show. "I'm over the top, I'm loud, I'm full of life. I'm TV gold and I did not deserve to be treated the way I was treated."

Bethenny Frankel Reveals How Much Money She Made On First Season of 'Housewives'
Don't let her glitz and glam fool you: Reality TV star and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel made a surprisingly small amount of money for the first season of Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York City."

"I made $7,250 for the entire season," she told PeopleStyle, while giving the publication a glimpse inside her now very impressive closet. Season one had seven episodes, plus a reunion, and aired in 2008.

During the interview, Frankel also plucked out a black, bedazzled dress from her closet. She explains to PeopleStyle that it was the first expensive outfit she ever bought.

"I couldn't afford it … I mean I got a discount, but this is Marc Jacobs, I cannot get rid of it," Frankel tells PeopleStyle. "I bought it at Scoop in Miami and I wore it to the season one 'Housewives' premiere party," she says. "I live for it."

Kenya Moore Is Thankful for Her "Growing Family"
Kenya Moore's 2017 was filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, including her marriage to Marc Daly in June and the passing of her grandmother Doris in July

The Real Housewives of Atlanta entrepreneur reflected on last year as 2018 began on Monday. "2017 you go down in history as one of the best and worst years of my life," Kenya started a note on Instagram featuring her most popular photos from 2017. "Worst because I lost the love of my life, my grandmother Doris who raised me from 3 days old. And the best being the day I married my husband and romantic love of my life."

Kenya is focusing on her family as she looks toward the future in the new year. "I thank God for every single day for Without love there can be no sorrow. Without history there can be no future. Without pain there can be no joy," Kenya concluded the post. "Thank you for my life and my growing family."
Kenya's mention of her "growing family" certainly may raise some eyebrows, considering all the pregnancy rumors that have been swirling around her for the past month. When Kenya was recently asked about the rumors during the RHOA After Show, which premieres January 7, she replied, "I hope so. You know, listen, we have been really up front about wanting to expand our family, and we have definitely been taking the proper steps to try to make that happen."
