NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann Finally Come Face-to-Face at 'RHOA' Season 10 Reunion
NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann have provided so many unforgettable moments during The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunions over the years. Need we remind you of "Close your legs to married men"? Well, this season will definitely be no exception. 

After all of the tension that has boiled up between them in Season 10 of RHOA, especially Roachgate, the two Georgia Peaches will finally come (literally) face-to-face to hash out their issues at this season's reunion. And as you can see from the sneak peek of the reunion above, it should go about as well as any of us expected. 

Cynthia Bailey teased NeNe and Kim's confrontation at the reunion during a recent interview with Us Weekly. “Kim tried to tear her down. It got so crazy!" she shared. “I’d be shocked to see them become friends again.”

That's not the only drama we'll see when the three-part RHOA reunion kicks off on Sunday, April 8 at 8/7c. And it looks like it's enough to cause Eva Marcille to have her baby right there and then. "I need them to calm down so I do not have a reunion baby," Eva joked.

Ramona Singer Thinks Bethenny Frankel Is ‘Just Not Happy’
In case you missed … Us! Each week at Us Weekly we talk to some of the hottest celebs and dish about pop culture, reality TV, relationships and a whole lot of drama, while getting all the latest news! We compile some of our favorite interviews and highlights into our podcast In Case You Missed Us. Listen above!

This week it’s all about the ladies here at Us Weekly. We’ve got The Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer, everyone’s favorite Bachelor villain Corinne Olympios and famed prosecutor Marcia Clark.

With The Real Housewives of New York City  gearing up for its 10th season (April 4), veteran housewife Ramona Singer gave us the details on how the demise of Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s friendship will affect the dynamic of the group.

“A discord between Bethenny and Carole kind of affected the whole ambiance of the show, and all of a sudden this season, I’m like really close to Dorinda [Medley] and Carole,” Ramona told Us. “I don’t think we chose sides, I think things just happened organically. Whatever happened between Bethenny and Carole happened between them, and everything else just kind of happened organically.” 

It appears that Ramona, 61, is still on the outs with the Skinnygirl creator as well, telling Us, “Bethenny’s just not happy, I mean she says she’s not happy, I mean she’s either crying or screaming … hopefully she’ll get happy.”

Jacqueline Laurita On Why She Isn’t Returning to ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’
Jacqueline Laurita wants to speak for herself. The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum took to Twitter to clarify reports about why she isn’t returning to the Bravo reality series.

“I was asked by an executive producer what it would take for me to come back to #RHONJ…I said full time and a whole new cast. Lol! (Dolores [Catania] can stay.) I don’t like the direction it’s going in anymore,” Laurita, 47, tweeted on Tuesday, March 27. “I’m a very positive person & I’m very happy with my life. I love my family & I love my friends. I want to do positive things. I love sharing my journey & knowledge I’ve gained along the way. I love helping people and that’s what I am going to continue to do.”

Multiple sources told Us Weekly exclusively in January that producers had considered approaching Laurita and Caroline Manzo about coming back on the show. But two months later, Us confirmed that neither would return.

Laurita was one of the original Housewives when RHONJ premiered in May 2009. She was demoted to a friend of the Housewives in season 6 in 2014, only to return as a full-time cast member two years later. In April 2017, Laurita revealed that she had officially left the show, telling Entertainment Tonight that she no longer had “an authentic connection” with fellow OG Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Meanwhile, Manzo, 56, was a main Housewife for the first five seasons before starring in her own spinoff, Manzo’d With Children.

Luann de Lesseps Declares 'Not Drinking Is Exhausting'
Luann de Lesseps is finding her cool after an uncool year!

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 52, debuted her #CountessAndFriends cabaret show at New York City’s Feinstein’s/54 Below on Tuesday evening.

Dressed in a nude diamanté dress and a tiara, de Lesseps opened her show with The Beatles’ 1967 hit “With A Little Help From My Friends” before transitioning into a medley of her hits for which she received a roaring response from the crowd.

“I feel so much love in here,” the mother of two said to the audience which included pals Michelle Collins, Sonja Morgan and Kelly Bensimon, as well as ex-boyfriend Jacques Azoulay who was in attendance with his girlfriend.

“I had a list of songs but had to reconsider ‘Jailhouse Rock,'” de Lesseps joked making reference to her arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve when she was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant.

De Lesseps, who had married to ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach on last New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later, pleaded not guilty to the charges and a hearing is set for April.

Even through tough times, she channeled her experiences into positive can-do attitude specifically with humor. “I fought the law and the law won,” de Lesseps told the crowd, happily making fun of herself. “Crazy for thinking I could get out of those handcuffs.”

Lauri Peterson Breaks 2-Year Silence on Son's Arrest
Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson took to Twitter on Thursday to set the record straight about her son Josh Waring's arrest. 

Back in 2016, Waring was arrested for allegedly shooting a man in Costa Mesa, Calif. and fleeing the scene in a stolen car. In addition to the attempted murder charge, he faced charges of battery, hit and run with property damage; resisting arrest and obstructing an officer; unlawful taking of a vehicle and, lastly, evading police and reckless driving.

Unfortunately, this wasn't his only run-in with the law. Later that year, Waring was charged with possession of contraband while in prison after police said he "knowingly and unlawfully" had an alcoholic beverage in the men's maximum-security jail.

"After keeping silent for nearly 2 years in regards to my sons arrest, I am going to begin laying out the facts of his case and how easily it is to be falsely accused," Peterson tweeted. 

When a follower asked the former Housewife to "let us know the truth," the reality star replied "you will get facts only! I promise!"

"I will lay out the facts starting from the day of the arrest," she added. "I'll let you be the judge but it is going to take me time to organize and far to lengthy for one tweet."

Candiace Dillard Joins 'Real Housewives of Potomac'
Candiace Dillard joins The Real Housewives of Potomac this season with a touch of sass and savviness. The 31-year-old former Miss United States was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, with her Air Force physician parents and siblings, Chris and Crystal. At an early age, Candiace learned what excellence looked like from observing her parents, who worked in different facets of the medical field. A graduate of Howard University, she served a tenure in the White House Offices of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, where she liaised between the White House and the African American community for President Barack Obama. She later traded in her suit and heels for the campaign trail, where she served as a staffer for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign. In 2013, Candiace won the crown and title of Miss United States and hasn’t looked back since. She has competed in the pageant industry for many years and holds top placements in the Sunburst, National American Miss, National Miss American Coed, Georgia Miss American Coed, Miss Maryland USA, Miss District of Columbia USA, and Miss United States pageant systems. 

As an entrepreneur, she is the founder and CEO of Candiace Dillard Pageant Consulting, cofounder of Prima Hair Collection by Candiace Dillard, and co-owner of Chateau Salon Suites. In 2009, she also founded an organization called My Sister’s Keeper, a mentorship and women’s empowerment organization designed to give young girls the opportunity to interact with women in their communities. Candiace is currently engaged to her soulmate, restaurateur Chris Bassett, whom she met while they were both working at a restaurant in downtown Washington, D.C. They were friends for several years before the courtship blossomed into undeniable love, and Chris proposed to her with a surprise engagement that included all of her family and friends. When she is not running her numerous businesses or being a pageant girl, Candiace can be found curled up with a good book, as reading is her favorite pastime.

What Does Marlo Hampton Do For A Living?
For years, one question has plagued fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta like no other: What exactly does Marlo Hampton do for a living? Many have posed that question since we first met Marlo on RHOA, including her fellow Georgia Peaches. However, we haven't really been able to get to the heart of Marlo's career — that is, until now. 

When The Daily Dish caught up with Marlo earlier this season, she called the speculation surrounding her occupation "just crazy." She also has an explanation for why it may seem like she has a multitude of diverse interests. Marlo has described herself as everything from a style maven to an etiquette expert over the years, after all. "I'm an Aquarius. You always have to have 50 different things going on — not one, two, three, four, five," Marlo explained. "If it ain't 50 or more, something's wrong."

Well, Marlo doesn't have quite 50 jobs, but she's pretty darn close. Find out all of the ways that Marlo spends her days, below.

She's a Designer

Marlo doesn't just wear other people's clothes; she also designs her own. She's launching an accessories brand called Arie and Emma, which is named after her grandmother and mother, respectively, that will include sunglasses and jewelry. You can get in touch with your shady self by purchasing some fierce T-shirts that feature the words "The Shade Is Real" and Marlo's fabulous face through her website now.

Marlo thanks her grandmother Arie and mother Emma for her passion for fashion. "Both of them are always fabulous at church with the big hats, the jewelry, so it's literally in my DNA," she told The Daily Dish. 

Marlo has been sharing her sartorial expertise with the world as a stylist with the majority of her work being done as a "ghost stylist," kind of like a ghostwriter where it's not publicly known that you're providing styling services for an individual. "I like that better. I feel good when I see my work out there," she said. "I just give them a wink, 'Hey, thanks for the check. You look fabulous.'"

Source Says Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita Will NOT Be Returning To "Real Hosuewives of New Jersey"

Danielle Staub, who returned to RHONJ last season as a friend for the first time since her season 2 departure in 2010, will be back, but her role is up in the air, according to the source.

While no new full-time Housewives have been hired yet, “they’re rolling in a bunch of different people and trying to figure it out as they go,” a source explains.

As previously reported, sources exclusively told Us Weekly in January that producers were considering approaching former housewives Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita about returning to the series. Us can now confirm that they will not be returning this season.

When asked in January if she would rejoin the hit franchise, Caroline told Us it would “be a major, major decision.” (She left RHONJ after five seasons in 2013 and went on to star on Manzo’d With Children with her family for three seasons.)

“It’s not something that I would embrace wholeheartedly and say, ‘Let’s do this!’ It’s something that I would consider very, very heavily and for a long time,” she explained. “On my end it would have to be a very well thought out decision because it has so many layers to it at this point in my life. So many layers to it. I had so much fun doing Manzo’d. It was just an awesome awesome opportunity.”

Kim Zolciak Responds to NeNe Leakes' Accusations Following Roachgate
Roachgate was reignited during Sunday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And believe it or not, things got even more heated between Kim Zolciak-Biermann and NeNe Leakes — and we didn't even think that was possible. 

NeNe accused Kim of being racially insensitive after she sent that text message featuring the video of bugs in her bathroom taken by Kim's daughter, Brielle Biermann, while the ladies were vacationing in Barcelona. "It sounds very racial when you are speaking to an African-American person and talk about roaches because people feel like you're associating that with the ghetto or trash," NeNe said during the episode. 

Kim addressed NeNe's comments when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Sunday night (clip above). "I'm definitely not racist. I don't associate roach, whatever, spider, whatever, just in my mind. So I've heard it from several people. I hear you. That's not wherever my head has ever been at," Kim said.

Camille Grammer Admits She Doesn’t Keep In Touch with Taylor Armstrong
Bravo fans were excited to see The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills veteran Camille Grammer return to the show last year for Season 8. Of course, the Camille today bears little resemblance to the Camille of Season 1. The RHOBH mom, who divorced then-husband Kelsey Grammer in 2011, is raising her two children, daughter Mason, 16, and son Jude, 13, survived stage II uterine cancer and squamous cell carcinomagot engaged to lawyer David C. Meyer in October 2017, and recently returned to the fashion world, walking in the Malan Breton show during New York Fashion Week. “I’m a different person now, because I had a lot of heartbreak, and I was anxious then and nervous and sad and I had all these different emotions, and confused,” she told The Daily Dish podcast when looking back at her Season 1 debut. "I had to grow a lot … That’s why this year, I feel I can be a little bit more [sassy] and not feel exactly Season 1 but you can see glimpses of Season 1 Camille.” 

She remembers coming back after Season 1 as “very difficult. I was going through a divorce and to play that out publicly was extremely hard. I was trying to hide the fact that my marriage was in trouble when I was filming. I didn’t know what was transpiring but I knew something was wrong. And then further along in the season, as we were filming, I had found out that Kelsey was out of the marriage basically, and trying to hold it together, and finish out the season, it was really, really difficult.” 

Speaking of Season 1, Camille explained she feels “that O.G. bond” with fellow original Housewife Adrienne Maloof, who ultimately left after Season 3 (Camille left after Season 2, in 2012). “We went through a lot those first two or three seasons together … Divorces, there were a lot of highs and lows, so with that, you get closer with the people that you’re with.” Camille pointed out that she and Adrienne have both faced similar relationship struggles since that first season. “Adrienne and I were talking about that, how we both went through divorces together, one after another,” Camille explained. "How bizarre, because both of our husbands wanted us to be on the show, and we didn’t realize that we were going through a divorce on the show.”

But there is one veteran ‘Wife Camille doesn’t keep in touch with. “I’ve lost contact with Taylor [Armstrong]," she admitted. "The last time I talked with her was about a year and half, two years ago.” Taylor left RHOBH after Season 3 in 2013 and has since gotten remarried to John Bluher. She also indicated she wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of returning to the show in the future.

Kenya Moore Confirms Pregnancy at 'RHOA' Reunion
Oh baby!

Kenya Moore dropped the major bombshell that she is pregnant during The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion taping and has the exclusive details.

“Kenya was getting grilled about her secret marriage and Andy point blank asked her if she was pregnant,” a show insider snitched to Radar.

“Andy asked her about her being spotted at the fertility clinic and said: ‘Are you pregnant?’ and Kenya said yes.”

Cynthia Bailey gushed over the baby news, but the snitch told Radar that the rest of ladies were skeptical of the news.

“Kenya didn’t look pregnant; all of the ladies have had kids and they totally didn’t believe her.”
Moore’s pregnancy was first reported by the Love B Scott website.

Dorinda Medley Celebrates 6 Years with Boyfriend John Mahdessian
Man, time flies when you're having fun. And that appears to be the case for Dorinda Medley and John Mahdessian, who celebrate six years together this week. And, of course, The Real Housewives of New York City friend didn't pass up the chance to gush about her longtime love. "Happy 6th Anniversary @johnmahdessian! We’ve come a long way baby! #LOVE," she wrote on Thursday (March 15).

And, just weeks ago, John shared his own sugary sweet message about his lady love. The dry cleaning expert used the Oscars as the perfect opportunity to pay homage to Dorinda, writing on Instagram, "She keeps winning the 'Best Partner' [and] 'Best Friend' Awards for 6 years now!! #bestfriend #bestpartner."

And despite all these years together, Dorinda has never been shy about sharing the reasons why she won't marry her man, as you can see in the video above. But, as she noted in another interview with The Daily Dish, it has nothing to do with how much she cares for him: "But I adore and love John and we're in a very committed and monogamous relationship."

Judge Orders Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy to Get Forensic Custody Evaluations with Daughter Bryn
After years spent finalizing their divorce, the custody battle between Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy over their 7-year-old daughter Bryn continues.

As E! News previously reported in December, Frankel is suing Hoppy over the custody of their daughter. The Real Housewives of New York City star appeared in court today to face her ex before a Manhattan judge.

A source close to the situation tells E! News exclusively that Judge Michael Katz has ordered Frankel and Hoppy to get forensic evaluations done with their daughter.

"Back in 2013 when the divorce and custody initially happened, this same doctor did a forensic custody evaluation at the time," the source says. "The judge today ordered that same doctor do another forensic custody evaluation to update his first report from 2013. He will meet with Bryn and Jason, and then Bryn with Bethenny – separately but in person – and observe each of them with the child."

Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel’s Friendship Is Over After ‘Things Turned Acrimonious’
In the politics of friendship, Carole Radziwill is choosing a new side. Multiple sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly that the author, 54, has ended her much-discussed friendship with Real Housewives of New York City costar Bethenny Frankel.

One source says the pair grew apart last summer as Carole trained for the New York City Marathon and Bethenny, 47, focused on her B Strong charity, then “things turned acrimonious while filming.” The main sticking point, says another insider, was that Carole began sticking up for castmate Tinsley Mortimer.

“Bethenny’s jealous of their relationship,” says the source. “Tinsley has replaced her as New York City Marathon Carole’s bestie.”

Fans got their first look at Bethenny and Carole’s fallout during the RHONY season 10 trailer, which debuted on March 1.

“I’m not sure Carole is as excited to see me as she used to be,” the Skinnygirl creator revealed in the teaser after the two women accused each other of being “defensive” in another clip.

Carole also told Bethenny she was being “aggressive”with her in the trailer. Bethenny disagreed and later slammed Carole for calling her “Honey.”

NeNe Leakes Denies Ever Dating Shereé Whitfield's Boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams
NeNe Leakes made it very clear that she has never had a romance with Shereé Whitfield‘s boyfriend Tyrone Gilliams.

On Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the 50-year-old reality star addressed rumors of a relationship with Gilliams.

“I’m going to be very clear with you guys so you can never ask me again,” Leakes told her cast mates during their trip to Barcelona, Spain. “I have been married for over 20 years. I’m very much in love with my husband. Shereé and Tyrone, I’m happy for them. But I’ve never been out with Tyrone.”

“That’s Shereé’s man. … He’s not my man, he’s not my friend, he’s not my cousin, he’s not my neighbor. So whenever you bring up the name Tyrone, direct it to Shereé Whitfield,” she added. “You want to talk to me about a man? Talk to me about Gregg Leakes. ‘Cause I am Mrs. Gregg Leakes and have been for over 20 years.”

The problem was, though Leakes said questions about their relationship “keep coming up,” they hadn’t. In fact, no one had said anything of the sort.

“I didn’t even say you dated Tyrone,” fellow Atlanta Housewife Kandi Burruss told the audience. “Now you telling on yourself. Whatchu do, girl?”

Aviva Drescher Would Be Open To Returning To The ‘Real Housewives’
Aviva Drescher wouldn’t say “no” if she was ever asked back to “The Real Housewives of New York.”

“If they needed somebody and I worked in the mix, I would go back,” she recently told Page Six. “I really think the ‘Housewives’ are some of the strongest women around because they are portraying their real life and they’re getting hammered for it and to have that thick skin. I think its really admirable.”

However, the mom of four, who appeared on the franchise’s fifth and sixth seasons, says her lifestyle is a bit different from the ladies who are currently on the Bravo show entering its tenth season in April.

“Our lives are so different because none of them are really married and none of them have kids. All their kids are grown,” said Drescher, with her husband Reid chiming in that, “All of them don’t go out until 11 p.m.”

“I go to bed at 8 p.m., so I’m really boring,” Drescher, 47, laughed.

She says she’s been in touch with her former cast mates, most recently fellow alum Jill Zarin, who is dealing with the loss of her husband, Bobby.

“Jill is one of my favorite human beings in the world,” she said. “Jill and Bobby as a team were so generous and so kind and so welcoming and so open. My heart is broken for them.”

5 Minutes With: Lynda Erkiletian
Lynda Erkiletian, who has the distinction of starring in the only U.S. “Real Housewives” franchise not to make it past Season 1, still thinks Washington could make it to the big time. Although some argue that Washington will never be more than a political town, Erkiletian isn’t buying it. Thirty-three years after opening the Artist Agency, her D.C.-based talent firm, the onetime reality star continues to push Washington into the limelight.

What was your experience like on “Housewives”?
When I started doing the show, I had already been in business 26 years, so I had my tribe of industry people who knew who I was. But it was wonderful to have the platform of Bravo and be able to showcase our industry across the nation and, in some cases, across the world.

Overall, was the experience a positive or a negative?
I won’t say it was all a bed of roses. It certainly was not. As you probably know, we had our White House crashers, and the FBI — which [“Housewives” executive producer] Andy Cohen just recently talked about — came in and seized all the film and footage. It was very uncomfortable. We were the first “Housewives” show that didn’t go forward for a second season. We knew that [before they told us] because they stopped filming, and we knew the FBI requested all the footage because they had to make sure that Bravo didn’t have anything to do with it. That’s a monster breathing down your back when you’re trying to do a reality show.

Did you have any idea that was going to happen?
Oh, no. I didn’t really film with the Salahis with the exception of being at other people’s parties, because that was part of my contract. I had done business with them in the past, and I didn’t want the association. We had done her [Michaele’s] polo event before for the fashion show, and, unfortunately, it wasn’t a very good business arrangement. We had to sue them to get our money. So, I really didn’t want to pretend that I liked who they were. But I think the “Housewives of D.C.” was certainly worth doing it. I have no regrets as far as that goes.

How do you feel about “The Real Housewives of Potomac”?

I haven’t seen this season, but I do have favorites. I think it’s great to have a reality show in D.C. I used to live in Potomac. It’s a fantastic city. It’s wonderful that they’re doing it. We need something to showcase our city on a national level. If that’s what it takes, I’m all for it.

Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador Revealed Something They Have In Common
It looks like Shannon Beador  and Kelly Dodd have put their past drama behind them (clip above) — and the two ladies are starting a new chapter together. That's right, these two The Real Housewives of Orange County moms are "two single gals in LA," as Shannon shared on Instagram about their hangout sesh at Craig's in Los Angeles, a beloved hotspot for all sorts of Bravo stars. And judging by their smiles, both the food and the company must have been enjoyable.

In 2017, both Shannon and Kelly announced their splits from David Beador and Michael Dodd, respectively. And so they really are, as Shannon put it, "#sistersinourjourney."

Shannon and David announced their separation last October after nearly two decades together. She has since announced a new project with QVC. Meanwhile, Kelly shared she and Michael were splitting last September; they have since finalized their divorce.

Sonja Morgan Is Getting into the Shoe Biz
We’ve seen her chic sportswear and formal designs, and have sipped on her Tipsy Girl bubbly ... but now, Sonja Morgan is ready to dip her toes into footwear. (Quite literally.) The Real Housewives Of New York City entrepreneur is launching a brand new business venture — and this time she’s teamed up with NYC-based shoe brand French Sole.

The stylish Upper Eastsider designed an eight-piece capsule collection for the shoe company, and this was no random pairing. Sonja has been a longtime fan of its comfy flats. 

"I've always lived on the Upper East Side and French Sole is an Upper East Side brand," she told PeopleStyle. "I walk everywhere and of course I pass by the store and drop in. It's just something that I do — it’s a part of my life and I try on shoes. And my daughter has worn them since she was 9 years old."

The collection, titled French Sole by Sonja Morgan, will include a variety of ballet flats and loafers with an added bit of Sonja-flair. And you've probably already seen them. The NYC designer has sneakily been dropping peeks of her latest designs on social media.

Page Six has learned that the Southampton location of Kyle by Alene Too has also downsized its real estate. Unlike the Upper East Side location, the Southampton spot didn’t move but instead subdivided its space to share with The Shoe Box.

“It’s still in the same space on Main Street, but now it’s sharing space with Shoe Box,” a spy told Page Six Saturday. “It’s a lot smaller now, so I guess it’s in the same situation as the New York City situation.”

As Page Six previously reported, the Upper East Side location of the 49-year-old Richards’ store shuttered its doors and moved down the street to take up the back room of a Shoe Box location.

“It’s much smaller and looks so cramped compared to the old store,” a source told Page Six of the Manhattan location. “There are only like three racks of clothing now, but it’s good price-point-wise. The other store was just so expensive and it didn’t seem like anyone was buying the higher-end stuff, so it didn’t seem sustainable to stay in that huge space.”

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 Trailer
"Even prison bitches have their one person they're loyal to."

The Real Housewives of New York City season 10 trailer is here and it has (literally) everything you hoped for. Forget Luann de Lesseps' drunken fall in Mexico. Forget Dorinda Medley's Berkshires breakdown. Forget Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer's endless loop of fighting, season 10 is here and it looks amazing.

The major focus? Luann's December arrest, of course. "I've been traveling, I've been to prison, and I just want to be close to home," she tells someone over the phone, while footage of her crying in bed plays.

"This is very embarrassing," Sonja Morgan admits to Tinsley Mortimer as she hears the news.

Lisa Rinna Says Erika Girardi Sees Lisa Vanderpump Differently Than the Other Housewives
Lisa Vanderpump and Erika Girardi have had a, shall we say, complicated relationship since they first started hanging out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As you may recall, Erika wasn't really feeling Lisa at first. She did once call her a "sniper from the side" and talked about others getting tangled in her web, after all. 

Lisa and Erika's relationship continued to look a little shaky at the start of this season when Lisa expressed that she didn't feel like she was getting as much out of the friendship as she put in. Oh, and let's not forget about that shady "scratch the puss" comment from Lisa.

Perhaps it's all due to Erika just seeing Lisa in "a different way" than the other Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That's at least according to Lisa Rinna, who discussed their dynamic during the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show Tuesday night. Find out why Lisa Rinna thinks "Erika is a smart f---ing cookie" when it comes to Lisa Vanderpump in the above video. 

It looks like Lisa Vanderpump will encounter some more drama in the 90210 in next Tuesday's episode at 9/8c — and it's not with Erika.
