Paris Hilton "Obsessed" With Her Aunts on Beverly Hills Housewives
According to Paris Hilton, aunts Kim and Kyle Richards are having a hard time adjusting to the spotlight after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiered two weeks ago.

"When there's cameras around there's always going to be a lot of pressure," she told at the Haute Canine Couture event in Beverly Hills Thursday. "Kim wasn't used to it in the beginning. She was an actress her whole life, and now it's reality, which is really different. I think it's hard to really get into."

Before her aunts made their Bravo debut, Hilton, 29, admitted she'd never watched the Real Housewives franchise -- but now the Simple Life veteran tells Us she's "obsessed" with the show. "It's really good," she says. "I think they're really funny and are doing great!"

"Naughty But Nice" Talks To Teresa Giudice

Adrienne Maloof And Kyle Richards Jealous Of Sexy Camille?
Camille Grammer, the femme fatale is stirring up some major drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Especially between Adrienne Maloof and her plastic surgery husband, Dr. Paul Nassif. The cat claws came out this week, during a wild weekend in Las Vegas at the Maloof family owned Palms Casino. Adrienne Maloof’s hubby Dr. Paul, couldn’t stop drooling over Camille’s Grammer’s sexy stripper moves and busty tata’s.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hit a Jay Z concert, compliments of Adrienne Maloof and her brothers. It was an interesting weekend in Vegas, with Kim Richards and Camille Grammer playing third wheels to the married couples. It’s pretty obvious that Kyle Richards and Adrienna Maloof are SUPER jealous of Camille. 

She’s wild, she’s a guys girl and loves to chat up the boys. Plus, now that she’s single and MEGA rich, she will be one hot commodity on the 90210 dating market.

Astrochicks finds the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills marriages fascinating. Kyle and Lisa seem to think that Taylor Armstrong is so hot, not really ladies. Her face looks like it has been smashed against a window, most guys would not find her attractive, unless you like ducks. Neither did her rich husband Richard, who she had to chase for three months before he would even take her out.

Lisa Vanderpump appears to have the most normal marriage, her husband is handsome and charming in a British sort of way. He’s definitely in love with his Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it they could only get rid of her gay boy toy that lives at the house.
Funny that so many people seem to think Camille's the hottest 'Housewife' on RHOBH because I just don't see it. In fact I'd say with ease that Kyle and Taylor are way hotter than Camille and if Kim wasn't so uptight all the time I'd put her 3rd.

Kim Zolciak's Football Star Boyfriend Subject Of Atlanta Falcons Locker Room Taunts

The NFL football star boyfriend of Kim Zolciak is suffering the brunt of some locker room taunts about his relationship with the infamous Atlanta housewife, can reveal.

Kroy Biermann’s Atlanta Falcon teammates have been teasing the 6' 3" 260 lbs defender about his relationship with the wig-wearing blonde after rumors spread that he was about to propose to the reality vixen.

Zolciak, 32 and Biermann, 25, have been dating for several months.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star even took her family to see Biermann play in last weekend’s home victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

But according to a source close the couple, “Kroy has been taking a lot of stick because he’s dating Kim” and his teammates are teasing him that “he’s with a gold digging cougar."

“Fortunately Kroy is a big laid back kind of guy and he just let’s all their comments roll off his back – he just laughs them off actually,” an insider told

“The truth is he really likes Kim and he doesn’t care what anybody else thinks as long as he’s making her and her happy that’s all that matters to him.”
Maybe he really does like Kim, but someone had to warn him about her recent past...I would think.

Danielle Staub Talks Sex Tapes, Karma, Girl-on-Girl Bullying and Caroline Manzo

Damn, this gets pretty ugly, but we're talking about Danielle Staub here so expect no less:
Remember when being considered a "housewife" was a bad thing? Well, it's 2010 and housewives are considered to be pretty fierce...even if you're an ex-housewife. Danielle Staub, who was part of season one and two of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was rumored to be fired by Bravo. But that isn't the only recent hearsay about the reality star. There are rumors that she's a lesbian, an ex-con, and possibly the most hated person on TV.

So when Cultist got the chance to chat with Ms. Staub, whose Miami event (Jersey-ween) was canceled the day of the interview, we wanted to clear the air. Staub was ready to bare all and talked about her sex tape, how being Sicilian helps her understand what it's like to be black, why Bravo should have pulled the other housewives off her, and a few threats about karma being a bitch. The cherry on top? News of a Danielle Staub fitness video.

New Times: We're sad you won't be joining us in South Florida for Halloween.

I know, it would have been nice. I could have gotten a little bit of color.
Does coming to Miami bring up memories of your past?

I have moved on from everything that doesn't make me feel good. There are parts of Miami and my life in Miami that I love. It wasn't all bad. I got arrested, that was the bad part. I went there with my first love; it's in my book. But we were teenagers; we were young. Florida will always be one of my homes.
Did you and Bravo have a mutual break up or were you fired?

Yeah, it was totally mutual. I didn't want to return at all. I realized I can do a lot better. I can take my ratings and go anywhere.
Do you regret doing the show?

Not for a second. I don't live by regrets. I live by experiences. There are a lot of people that truly relate to me. I didn't hide. I didn't run. I embraced it and left my mark. I'm a published author, I'm a recorded artist, I have two incredible children with their own entities going on, I have shown what kind of mother I am through my children. People have nothing but love for me. Gay, straight, black, white, rich, poor--I have been it all, I relate to it all. I haven't been black, but I'm Sicilian.
How do you think Bravo portrayed you?

I think they did their best to make sure their ratings were met. They lost sight of the fact that, and I'm going to say this very delicately, I am a human being and I'm a mother. And they should have corralled up their animals every once in a while. What they allowed to happen to me is bullying. I refuse to believe that is OK in anyone's eyes. I don't care if you hate my guts, it's wrong to do that to another person. What if I were too weak and considered doing something to hurt myself? Because they tore at me enough to do so. They ganged up on me. They never once gave me a chance to breathe and just be me. In the presence of Andy, I think at both reunions that he should have stepped in and said that's fucking enough.
So it's safe to say you and the ladies are no longer friends?

I wouldn't call them ladies, but yes.
Is it hard to have ladies you once had in your home and around your kids betray you, even testify against you in court?

I think all their karma is flying in. I don't have to do much. They keep destroying themselves. People lie about somebody and it's going to come back 10x to you. Look at what's going on with Theresa right now. There's my point. The rest of them have it coming too. Look at Dina -- look how miserable she is. She has no husband, she can't do the show, her ex-husband she fights with, she forged contracts, her Ladybug thing is under investigation. Caroline, your father-in-law was murdered and chopped up and placed in front of the brownstone, your father did time in prison leaving 11 kids behind. Let's see, your best friend is in prison now for taking bribes from the mob and jeopardizing homeland security, but I am garbage? For what I did 27 years ago, when I was younger than your children, who you're still tying ties for and shoes for? Karma is a bitch.

Five Things To Know About Cindy Barshop

Last seaon's Real Housewives of New York brought the drama big time. There were mental breakdowns, a friendship destroyed, even a wedding and a baby.

But now that Bethenny Frankel has decided to call it quits, producers are throwing a new Housewife into the mix. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Cindy Barshop.

Here are five things you must know about the newest addition to the cast.

1. She Loves Clean Lines—Bikini Lines, That Is: Barshop is the proud owner of the lucrative Completely Bare spas in New York and Palm Beach, which specialize in laser hair removal all over.  They are also experts in "vajazzling" one's nether regions. Her celeb clients include Kimora Lee Simmons, and she has a reputation for being a hardass businesswoman.

2. She's Not Afraid of Breaking Out the Credit Card:  Barshop is able to switch up her style, and is known to wear minis by Proenza Schouler and tower in sky-high heels. She loves fashion so much, she once almost bought a $25,000 Herm├Ęs Birkin bag at Maxfield's in L.A., then decided against it last-minute.

3. She's a Kickass Single Mom to Twin Girls:  And she went through a long IVF process to have them. Zoe and Jesse, born in 2009, are being raised by Barshop without the help of a man.

"What many of you probably don't know is that I spent years going through several IVF treatments to have a baby," Barshop writes on her blog. "It took determination, desire, painful shots, weight gain, and emotional stress to have them in my life. I look at them and know that in a heartbeat I would do it all again and again. Getting pregnant and becoming a mother has been, and will continue to be the most important thing I have ever and will ever do in my life."
Unless she can bring as quick a wit and can keep it real with Team Jill then I don't know how you can replace Bethenny. Ramona's too psycho and while Alex found some balls last season, you can't help but think that that was because of Bethenny (as Bethenny herself said). Funny too how Bravo cast aside Jennifer Gilbert like she was never there.

Teresa Giudice: Filming Without Signed Contract

Life & Style has learned that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has yet to sign a contract, even though they have started filming Season 3 of the Bravo reality show.

Cameras were rolling when a fight broke out between Teresa's husband Joe and her brother-in-law, Joe Gorga, at a reception for her 6-month-year-old nephew's christening, but one source suggests they were filming a spinoff.

Reality casting company Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment and Bravo are curiously holding casting calls for more new Housewives for season three of
The Real Housewives of New Jersey in the midst of the Giudices' tiring antics. "There is no paperwork signed for Teresa right now," a friend tells Life & Style. "They're casting, therefore, not just to replace Danielle Staub but to possibly replace Teresa as well," which means that the cash-desperate mom of four could be losing her family's main source of income.

Danille Staub's Lesbian Romance Was Just A Publicity Stunt
Danielle Staub and Lori Michaels have severed their ties with one another, has learned exclusively.

On top of that, a pal of the couple says their lesbian romance was simply a publicity stunt.

While the friend confirms Staub and Michaels were "physical" with one another, the two women were never in a romantic union.

Regardless, they purposely kept fans guessing by continuously stepping out together while refusing to define their relationship.

They even sang their duet Real Close on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

"They were not a couple," a friend said.

"Did they have a connection? Yes. Was it was very strong through work and song? Yes. Did Danielle feel more? Yes. Did she indicate that to Lori? Yes. But Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle."
I never really bought that Danielle and that "lesbian superstar" were in a relationship either, but considering how much of a slut Danielle is, no way am I surprised that they slept together. In fact, is there anything breathing that Danielle wouldn't sleep with?

Vicki Gunvalson Hospitalized For Internal Bleeding

As much as I can't the old scrooge, hears hoping she pulls through ok:

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson has been hospitalized for internal bleeding -- just over a week after filing for divorce from her husband of 16 years, TMZ reported Thursday.

Gunvalson, 47, is in a hospital for observation of upper gastrointestinal problems, according to the entertainment website. 

The development comes after the reality TV star filed for dissolution of marriage from her husband, Donn Gunvalson, in Orange County Superior Court last Monday. 

It was Vicki Gunvalson’s second marriage. She has a son, Michael, and a daughter, Brianna, from a previous marriage. 

The couple’s marital problems had been on display throughout “The Real Housewives,” a reality series which follows the lavish lifestyles of socialite housewives in the gated community of Coto de Caza, Calif.

In one episode, she was seen telling Donn Gunvalson, “My love tank is empty,” and on a cast reunion show last season, she said, “I just don’t feel real happy right now.”

Despite their issues, Vicki and Donn Gunvalson renewed their wedding vows on camera in 2009.

Danielle Staub's Halloween Treat -- 'You Got Served'
Danielle Staub just got tricked and then treated -- with a lawsuit from a process server who gave the former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star a serious shock at a Halloween party.

A TMZ photog saw the whole thing go down just minutes ago -- as Danielle was served for a defamation lawsuit her ex-boyfriend Steve Jalewski is bringing against her.

Danielle was just starting down the red carpet at a Halloween event in Woodridge, NJ when the process server walked up with an envelope and said, "Here, Danielle ... you've been served."

Danielle was stunned, but didn't miss a beat -- she simply handed the envelope to her publicist and continued down the red carpet into the party.

According to sources, Jalewski is suing Danielle for defamation because she has repeatedly accused him of secretly shooting a sex tape of her -- which he denies doing.

Red Carpet Roxy Talks To Taylor Armstrong

Did Albie And Chris Manzo Find Love On Millionaire Matchmaker?
On the new season of Millionaire Matchmaket, Patty Stanger is hooking up Millionaires and lucky singles in the Big Apple. Tonight it was love Italian style, featuring Caroline Manzo’s two sons, Chris and Albie, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Patty Stanger set up a hot group date at the Brownstone. Mama Caroline had a hidden camera set up, so she could help her two baby boys pick the right girls. I guess she didn’t want any trashy chicks like Danielle Staub hooking up with her sons.

Both Chris and Albie chose classy girls, which normally doesn’t happen on Millionaire Matchmaker. Chris Manzo, who seems more confident than his brother Albie, stumbled on his first date with Rachel. Chris took her to a Medieval Times restaurant, Rachel a fashion intern, was not impressed. Later Chris redeemed himself and did take her to high end restaurant for dinner. Astrochicks wasn’t feeling the chemistry and I don’t think Chris was either. He seemed bored with Rachel. She practically begged him for second date but he wasn’t biting. Patty Stanger read him the riot act after the date but I think she was just too vanilla for this Jersey Millionaire.

Now Albie Manzo and his date Nicky really hit it off, he took her out to dinner and on a romantic moonlight sail. The perfect gentleman, they seemed to be a good Millionaire Match. Even Mama Caroline a picky Virgo approved. Albie asked Nicky out on a second date and they are taking the relationship slow.

For Chris, he never went out with Rachel again. I think Chris Manzo is more into Jersey Shore type girls. Maybe Patty Stanger can fix him up with Snooki. Now that’s a date I would like to see. Either way, astrologically I don’t see Albie or Chris getting married anytime soon. Go get em girls.

DJ Tracy Young Claims Kim Zolciak Pregnant By NFL Boyfrriend
Kim Zolciak is expecting a baby with her beau! But in a shocking twist, Kim's former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young says Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her!

Star can exclusively reveal that The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak is expecting a baby with her beau, Atlanta Falcons pro footballer Kroy Biermann! But in a shocking twist, Kim's former lesbian lover, DJ Tracy Young says Kim asked her to raise the baby together and then dumped her!

Earlier this month, Tracy flew to Atlanta to reunite with Kim, four months after their bitter breakup. "She said she still loved me and wanted to tell me something important face to face,” Tracy tells Star exclusively in our Nov. 8 issue, on newsstands now.

Kim dropped the bombshell baby news and Tracy says, "When I asked her what she was going to do, she said, 'I want you to stay and raise the baby with me, because Kroy doesn't want to be involved.'" Little did Tracy know that only two days after Kim’s stunning announcement, her world would come crashing down as Kroy came back into the picture.
Sheree was being kind when she called Kim a "famewhore", she should've just dropped the "fame" part.

The Salahi's - Real Pinheads of DC
Everyone's favorite alleged White House party crashers and "Real Housewives of DC" fame whores Tareq and Michaele Salahi exploited themselves at the opening of Bowlmor Lanes bowling alley in Bethesda, Maryland on Tuesday.

They were actually invited to this event.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" Ep. 4: The High Price of Beauty
Quick—someone, Kim—intervene! Before we know it, Nene could pull a Heidi Montag. You know, the pressures of fame and constantly being perfect can have a toll on the ladies of Bravo, and Nene was feeling the stress this week on the "Real Housewives of Atlanta." I heard that Bentley Cadence, Maci's son on "Teen Mom", was going under the knife soon. It's really too bad, the guy never even had a chance. 

Nene's been going through some problems at (her rented) home. Nene's marriage to pastel-sweater-loving Gregg is on the rocks and her son Bryce is a useless delinquent. Nene tries to set a good example for Bryce by being such a productive member of society thorough her educational television program, but he just still doesn't get it. Then, on top of that, former BFF Duh-white has replaced Nene with Phaedra, who is so damn classy I can't even take it. What's a Nene to do? Get a breast reduction, liposuction and nose job, that's what. Sure, Nene's nose was big, but so was her head, body, breasts and persona. She's a big lady! So while this new nose is nothing unusual for someone as internationally famous as Nene, it just looks wrong on her body. Plus, she said she only had her nostrils taken in. Lie! Why is a nostril procedure any better than fessing up to a nose job? I'll never understand the levels of plastic surgery acceptance in their world. Botox, excellent. Nostril relocation, fantastic. Boob job, keep 'em coming. But a nose job? Heavens no!

Respected local artiste Dr. Whiteman put Nene out, and girlfriend was OUT. Her incoherent ramblings were some of them best one-liners of the night. Calling Kim from the hospital bed: "Kim, I'm right around the block." Calling Sheree: "I got a surprise for you. I get to wear one of your bras." In fact, the whole episode was very slap-stick comedy, in the vein of greats Charlie Chaplin and the Three Stooges. Maybe Atlanta housewives are the comic relief to the drama of the other cities. But, noticeably absent at the big surgery was Nene's husband Gregg. Bad move, G. She wasn't going to let Gregg ruin her new nose, though. The day of her surgery, still completely anesthesia-drunk, she was ready to party: "I’m ready to drink. The bitch is back!"

Camille Grammer: Kelsey Got Me On 'Housewives' So He Could Cheat

Kelsey and Camille Grammer's marriage of 13 years was seemingly intact when Camille signed on to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which debuted two weeks ago on Bravo.

Yet this past July, as the show filmed, actor Kelsey, 55, filed for divorce from Camille -- and quickly stepped out with new love, 29-year-old flight attendant Katye Walsh. (Walsh sadly miscarried their child in September.)

Camille now charges that her soon-to-be ex lobbied to get her on the Bravo series in order to facilitate an affair with Walsh. Kelsey moved from Malibu to NYC to star in a revival of Broadway show La Cage Aux Folles, still running now.

"Looking back, maybe he wanted to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair in New York," the ex Playboy model, who has two young children with the actor, tells the New York Post.

Bravo Producers Quietly Casting "Real Housewives of Houston"

I guess it wouldn't truly be a nationwide craze if they didn't hit the midwest at some point:
Move over, New Jersey. When it comes to TiVo-worthy reality TV divas, no one can deliver like Texas. So it's no surprise that experienced producers from Los Angeles are quietly in talks with several sultry socials for a Houston-based series.

The cast is still being whittled from 18 to the final five, but here's CultureMap's not-at-all-scientific, handicapped list of who we expect to see bringing the drama and the glamour soon in primetime.

Ursaline Hamilton

Housewife credentials: Former model? Check. Pro-athlete spouse? Check. Philanthropic? Check. What's not to love?

Odds: 2:1

Suzanne Getty

We're not sure if she's related to the oil and museum Gettys, but this modelesque brunette with the impeccable fashion sense strolls past velvet ropes to the most exclusive parties — and where she goes, we want the cameras to follow.

Odds: 3:1

Rachel Brown

Ready for drama and controversy mixed in with social climbing? As wife number four of the notorious hand doctor, she's making waves in the social scene and raising quite a brood.

Odds: 10:1

Joyce Echols

Can you say America's sweetheart? Echols' adorable blonde looks and sweet, bubbly personality will win her fans. And what's a villainess without a heroine to play against? (All the better if she drives a cherry red Ferrari.)

Odds: 3:1

Cindi Rose

Every good cast has a character that's well-meaning but a little bit wacky — think Lynne from Housewives of Orange County. Plus we all know the Rose family takes to reality television drama like a fish to water, and it's high time Cindi dove in.

Odds: 1:1

Jessica Meyer

You can't have a show about the Houston social scene without mixing in a glamorous, over-the-top diva with international flair. And we're pretty sure "flair" is this bombshell's middle name.

Odds: 5:1

Mara Davis Interviews Stacie Turner

The Document That Started 'Housewives' Brawl - Read Tamra Barney Lawyer’s Letter To Jeana Keough

This is the letter that started a wild brawl at the wrap party for Real Housewives of Orange County. exclusively obtained the letter written to Jeana Keough from Tamra Barney’s lawyer – a letter that triggered a glass-throwing brawl on Saturday night.

Barney’s attorney demanded that Jeana cease and desist “from making any further false and misleading statements... about or realted to TAMRA BARNEY and/or her familial relationships.”

As reported exclusively, when Tamra attempted to hand the letter to Jeana at the wrap party, Jeana pushed her, knocking her backward. Tamra then threw a glass of wine at her.

Jeana retaliated by trying to throw a glass of wine at Tamra but missed and hit someone else! That person, then pushed Jeana up against the wall in the mayhem. A man with Jeana later threw a wine glass at Tamra’s feet in the driveway.

During the brawl inside the letter fell to the ground but managed to get it.

It reads: “Should you persist in your efforts to cast Ms. Barney in a false light, we will pursue all remedies in law and in equity.”

The letter is dated October 23 – the same day Tamra tried to hand it to Jeana.
Does this mean Jeana's officially back on RHOOC?

Jeana Keough Shows Off Post-Thintervention Body
The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough has consistently lived a glamorous lifestyle, but that doesn't mean it's always been healthy.

The former Playboy model, 55, recently shed 25 lbs. while participating on Bravo's weight-loss show, Thintervention with Jackie Warner.

And now that she has a svelte new figure, Keough is seeking opportunities to show it off in a bikini. "I'm thrilled," she told PEOPLE about slipping into a two-piece. "I always thought I'd lose weight and then go get liposuction or something, but I never did. I'm as hard as a rock."

The reality star and mom of three, who recently treated herself to "a bunch of new dresses," hasn't completely cut out her guilty pleasures. "I still love pizza," she says. "I just limit myself to two pieces once a month."

Keough also refuses to give up alcohol, but she's changing her preferences. "I loved drinking red wine, but Jackie's pretty much convinced me vodka or tequila with some fresh lime in it is a better route to go," she says.
Yeah, Jeana looks good but ask Oprah: the hardest part, keeping the weight off, has just begun.

Taylor Armstrong Owns Up To Plastic Surgery: I Like Injections Here And There!

Staying young in Los Angeles is key — especially when you’re on TV, like The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsTaylor Armstrong. The youngest cast member of Bravo’s new hit show told there’s no shame in getting a little pinch and pull on your face every now and then — after all, how else do you avoid drastic measures, like face lifts?

“I think a little here and there keeps you from having these really radical procedures later and you end up looking like a completely different person,” Taylor told us at Bowl for a Better LA in Los Angeles Oct. 22.
She added, “My goal is then to get a little injections here and there and it makes me feel better about myself. 

It’s not for everyone but it makes me feel good, so I do it.”

Just what does “a little here and there” entail? Taylor has openly discussed her botox and lip fillers — we’ll have to stay tuned on Thursday nights to see what other plastic surgeries the Beverly Hills housewife chooses to undergo!

Michaele And Tareq Salahi Did Not Own Home On 'Real Housewives' Audition Tape has uncovered the alleged White House 'gatecrashers' did not own the home in which they auditioned for Bravo's hit reality television show - and insisted they owned. has learned the sprawling mansion with pool and tennis court in Hume, Virgina, belongs to Stuart and Daphne Himelfarb -- who actually appeared with the Salahi's in an episode where the couples dined at a restaurant.

"We don't have any comment," a shocked Daphne Himelfarb told when contacted Sunday.

In the last week's reunion show, Michaele and Tareq claimed they recently sold the Hume home, even though fellow cast members doubted they ever owned it.

However, has confirmed the Himelfarb's have owned the home since November, 2000.
Hey, I still say bring 'em back. If Bravo could put up with Danielle Staub for two seasons I don't see why they can't deal with Michaele and Tareq for another round.

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Moving to Sundays

Move over, Don Draper. Nene, Kim and She by Sheree are taking over Sunday night TV.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will switch to Sunday nights at 10 p.m. beginning November 7. Bravo’s twice-weekly late night talk show “Watch What Happens: Live” hosted by Bravo executive Andy Cohen will also move to Sundays, with new episodes airing immediately following “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

The schedule switch was announced by the president of Bravo Media, Frances Berwick.

“With Bravo’s rapid ratings growth and continued momentum in original programming and new engagement initiatives, we’re expanding to Sunday nights where we can kick off the week earlier and each night becomes a promotional platform for the next night becoming a domino effect that strengthens our schedule,” Berwick said in a statement. “We think the buzz-worthy sensation surrounding ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ with its ravenous fanbase, is the ideal launch for this new night of original programming.”

Teresa Giudice's Husband & Brother Trade Punches
From the west coast to the east coast, the Real Housewives were fighting all over the country this weekend. Only in New Jersey, it also involved the house husbands, has learned exclusively.

It all started after a christening for Teresa Giudice's nephew.

Next season's newest cast members of the Garden State franchise include Teresa brother and sister-in-law, Joey and Melissa Gorga, who hosted a christening on Sunday for their son.

According to a source, Teresa went to the church ceremony without her husband Joe, but following the baptism, she arrived with him and their four children in tow an hour late to The Manor restaurant
in West Orange, NJ for the reception.

While cameras rolled, Teresa walked up to her brother to congratulate him and he said in an upset tone: "Now you want to congratulate me after all this time? Now you want to be nice to me? Your husband didn't even come to the church and you show up an hour late!" the source said.

Teresa responded playing dumb: "I just wanted to say hi and congratulations."

Because of a recent history of bad blood between the two siblings, a verbal argument ignited between Teresa and her brother.

And when Joe Giudice got involved a physical altercation broke out between him and Teresa's brother Joey.

A friend who attended the party said: "Once again Teresa had ruined a perfect day. She took memories from the Gorga children and family, and took a day that was not about her and making it about her. And her husband is the crazy one who got up and started to start a physical fight."
Wow, with Danielle gone and Teresa's sister-in-law maybe coming in, a new season of RHONJ couldn't start soon enough for me. I'm just waiting to hear who replaces Dina.

Gretchen Rossi Speaks On Upcoming Season Of "Real Housewives Of Orange County"

Considering how many 'Housewives' he's run through, does Slade really think anyone takes his displays of affection as sincere?

Tamra Barney And Jeana Keough Brawl At "Real Housewives' Party

A wild brawl broke out at the wrap party for the Real Housewives of Orange County on Saturday night, with Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough throwing wine at each other and the encounter turning physical, eyewitnesses told exclusively.

Tamra, furious that Jeana has been giving interviews about her – interviews she has told people are wildly inaccurate – had her lawyer write a cease and desist letter to Jeana. When Tamra attempted to give the letter to Jeana at the party, the situation turned physical, learned exclusively from eyewitnesses.

“It was crazy,” one eyewitness told “It looked more like an out-of-control bar scene than a party!”

Tamra and Jeana began arguing at the party, which was held at Vicky Gunvalson’s house, with Tamra confronting Jeana over the objectionable interview, according to someone who saw and heard the exchange.

“Jeana wasn’t budging and finally Tamra said, ‘here’s a cease and desist letter from my attorney,’” the eyewitness told

Jeana refused to accept the letter and cursed Tamra and turned the argument into a physical one.

“Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b*tch and I’m gonna throw you’re a** in the pool,’” the eyewitness told us. 

“Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.” Tamra started to fall backward, and fell into someone behind her.

Still on her feet, Tamra responded by throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face!

The eyewitness told that Tamra then walked away and as she did Jeana tried to throw HER wine at Tamra. But Jeana missed Tamra and her wine hit another woman – who was wearing white and furious after being splattered.

That woman then stormed Jeana, grabbed her and pushed her up against a wall!
Tamra vs. Jeana?!? Now that's not a fair fight when you consider that Jeana must outweigh Tamra by 50 pounds at least. I'm just saying.

Bethenny Frankel: All Marriages Have Issues
Bethenny Frankel burst onto the reality TV scene with The Real Housewives of New YorkBethenny Getting Married. and took fans along for the ride as she made her way down the aisle -- and into the delivery room -- on Bethenny Getting Married.
The newlywed and new mom was on hand to help launch the new Trident Layers campaign in NYC and talked to about baby Bryn, hubby Jason Hoppy and why you won't be seeing her in the middle of any Housewives drama.

What's in store for the next installment of her hit reality series.

"I am very busy with Bethenny Getting Married?, which will have its second season in the new year. But now that Jason and I are married and have baby Bryn, we have to change the name of the show, of course. We haven't chosen one yet, but we have a lot of good ideas." 

The reality of happily ever after.
"From now on, Bethenny Getting Married? will be about issues. Everyone who is married knows that there are issues. We'll be talking about what it's really like to raise a baby, what it's like to have in-laws, what it's like to have religious differences. You know, the hot-trigger topics."

Talking The Talk
"CBS's new talk show for moms, The Talk, has reached out to me. But I'm too busy with Bryn and my own show right now. Plus, The Talk tapes in L.A., and I'm in New York. I'm doing Ellen Degeneres on Monday, so that's my L.A. appearance. But I will talk to the women on The Talk in a few months when my show comes back on and when my new book is out. That book, The Place of Yes, comes out March. It's about how I got to where I am, with the family, with everything."

Michaele And Tareq Salahi Available To Crash Parties

They’re going from the White House to your house – but only if you’re prepared to shell out your hard earned cash.

Alleged ‘Gatcrashers’ Tareq and Michaele Salahi have signed on with popular celebrity booking agent Mike Esterman, who tells that he has begun talks with a number of cruise lines to have them appear.

And the Salahis have already been booked for one gig -- to appear at a bowling lane in Maryland on October 26.

“The interest is there and whether people love or hate them, they’re still very notable,” Esterman said.

He added, “Cruise lines have asked possibly for the Salahis to come and do a segment about wines, for example, like wine tasting events,”

Kandi Burruss Almost Comes To Blows With Radio Co-Host/Rumored Lesbian Lover
Ironically, I was just on Twitter last night telling someone how unghetto Kandi Burruss from the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is, especially, compared to her counterpart NeNe– but I have obtained video footage from that just proved me wrong!! LOL  

(My psychic friend must have been trying to tell me something important, but I wasn't paying her azz any attention! My bad girl! lol)

Anyweezy—you know Kandi shoots a weekly Ustream show called Kandi Koated Nights on Wednesdays, so last night while comedian Lil Duval was a guest on her show—-ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE!!

Kandi and her former BFF @NeeqsWorld got into a heated argument which turned into blows, with Kandi screaming "Call the police"!!!! 

I've been hearing mixed stories about Kandi and Neeq's "friendship'. I've gotten reports that Kandi and Neeq did in fact sleep together a few times—because Neeq is a known lesbian (who has secretly fallen in love with Kandi).  

As a result of Kandi's experimentation, she's had to deal with a crazy bisch lately. I dunno…Kandi is a self-proclaimed "freak" so she might have put them thangs on Neeq. *shrugs* lol

Even after all of whatever "may have happened", Kandi still viewed their "friendship" as the same…whereas, Neeq has been adamant about Kandi settling down to make a commitment to her and be…GAY.

And basically, Kandi is not trying to go that route for real. She has a daughter that she's not trying to confuse, and (if she did) sleep with Neeq…it was on some vulnerable sh-t.  I've been told Kandi loves d-ck to much to give it all the way up! *giggity*

Since Kandi's denying Neeq what she truly wants—the tension between the two has been building up for the past few weeks, and last night Neeq started TUUUHHRYING Kandi on camera!! (oooo no she diiiii-innnttt!!!)
Just when you thought Kandi was the "classy" one on RHOA comes this mess.

Alex McCord: Salahi's Ruined Real Housewives of DC
After watching the second hour of the Real Housewives of DC reunion, I have to agree with Mary – this season was hijacked. The antics of the Salahis and their absolute refusal to take responsibility for any of their actions, was amazing.

Now that we've all seen the sit-down, now that there has been an opportunity for Tareq and Michaele to open up and try to redeem themselves, can we please pull the plug on them? When faced with direct statements from the Redskins, the Congressional Black Caucus, the White House, etc., this couple stated that everyone lied. You know, one person could lie. Perhaps even multiple people connected to one event could all stick to a made-up story. But when every single story you hear about a couple is dismissed as a lie or a smear, you stop believing them. I know I stopped a good while ago.

It's really sad that an entire season can be overshadowed by one couple's bad behavior. I wanted to see more fun events, more interpersonal drama, more of the minutiae of these women's lives. That's what makes the Real Housewives shows fun. I want to see more of Lynda and Ebong's relationship, and Rich and Mary dealing with the closet, the dog and the daughter. Let's watch Erika go after Cat, or Cat torture Republican lobbyists – all of that is much more fun than watching someone lie over and over again.
Of course, I wholeheartedly disagree. In fact in my opinion the Salahi's probably saved RHODC from being canceled because the other 'Housewives" stories just weren't that interesting. Cat, Mary and Lynda can hate on Michaele and Tareq all they want, but I watched the whole season and without the Salahi's it would've been a bore (tho' Cat's hatred for just about everybody would've surely supplied some good theater regardless). The Salahi's brought controversy and attention to RHODC, most viewers probably don't like them, but they sure as hell are interested in knowing what's going with them or what crazy stunt they'll pull next.I hope Bravo execs have the good sense to bring the Salahi's back.

The Dish: Kim Zolciak's New Tune

Gretchen Rossi Punked by So-Called Ex
This whole finger-pointing thing is not going Gretchen Rossi's way.

The Real Housewives of Orange County blonde lost a few of the legal legs she was standing on Thursday when a judge dismissed the meat of her defamation lawsuit against self-proclaimed ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou.

For starters, the defamation part is out.
"Yes!" Photoglou exclaimed as he left the courtroom and gave his attorney a hug. (No official comment was forthcoming, however.)

The judge struck down Rossi's claims of defamation, libel and portrayal in a false light after determining that her camp hadn't offered up enough evidence to prove Photoglou was lying about the two of them being in a romantic relationship while she was engaged to Jeff Beitzel, who died of cancer in 2008.

Rossi has already paid nearly $24,000 in legal fees for Photoglou, who sued her for defamation in January after her failed attempt to get a restraining order against him. (Her reason: She claims Photoglou threatened to kill her and boyfriend Slade Smiley.)

She's still allowed to pursue prior claims of assault, battery, stalking, breach of contract, conversion, intentional emotional distress, intentional interference with contractual relations and intentional interference with prospective economic relations for the time being.

Sonja Morgan Recovers From Drunk Driving Arerst With Booze-Filled Night!

It didn’t take Sonja Morgan too long to get back in a party mood after an arrest on drunk driving charges.

The Real Housewives of New York star attended cast mate Romona Singer’s party to launch her own wine brand Wednesday, and then continued to drink after leaving and hitting another event, until it was time to  wobble home, learned exclusively.

Morgan got popped on drunk driving charges in June when she failed a field sobriety test in Southampton, New York. (See her mug shot here.) But that arrest hasn’t hampered her taste for partying, as eyewitnesses discovered Wednesday night.

First Morgan downed some wine at Singer’s party. In nearly every episode of the show Romona can be seen sipping her Pino Grigio and the Bravo reality star was sharing the launch of her new wine at Serefina Restaurant while filming the fourth season of Real Housewives of New York.

Sonja slipped out early and went up the street to party at neighboring club, Lavo.

“Sonja was walking around at Lavo saying she got drunk from Romona’s cheap wine,” said a club goer. “But she continued to drink.”
Haven't heard much on Sonja lately, but it's good to know she's still having fun, but just not at other people's expense.

NeNe Leakes Admits To Nose Job, Lipo, Breast Lift - And More
In a world where it's become routine to speculate on who had plastic surgery on which body part, NeNe Leakes is taking matters into her own hands.

Leakes, a cast member on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," has given a "confession" to People magazine about the numerous procedures she's undergone recently.

The Georgian reality star admitted to having a nose job to narrow her nostrils, liposuction, a breast reduction and a breast lift.

And People reported in 2009 that Leakes had implants and veneers so her "smile would be beautiful."

The new NeNe said she is now also sporting D-cup breasts, a downgrade from DD, and weighs 15 pounds less, going from a size 10 to an 8.

So why the changes?

Leakes, 42, opted for straight-up honesty, telling the mag she's "vain" and "wanted a tune up."

The mother of two, who is currently filming the next season of "Celebrity Apprentice," added that she "wanted to look like the black woman I am, only a better version."

"I love what I did," she said.

Vicki Gunvalson On Divorce: "We Tried"
Vicki Gunvalson wants to move on. The Real Housewives of Orange County star spoke to exclusively about why she filed for divorce from husband Donn on Monday.

"We tried," Vicki, 48, told Us. "It's just too hard on both of us."

She added: "It is amicable and we want to keep this as private as possible."

Gunvalson also addressed the split on her official Facebook page.

"Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be," she wrote. "I would like to thank all of you for the outpouring of love and support that we have received."

Vicki and Donn wed in 1994; although they have no kids together, her children from her first marriage, Michael and Briana, lived with them in their home.
Considering the hell I'm sure he had to put up with for over 16 years, a good guy like Donn Gunvalson should be a better man after divorcing this selfish nutcase. Somebody needs to call "The Bachelor" people and see if they need anybody because Donn's not going to be on the market for long.

Chelsea Lately Suffering From "Housewives" Burnout

NeNe Leakes -- The Makeup Of A Diva On 'Apprentice'
UPDATE: Sources close to NeNe tell us ... the reality star is adamantly denying that she had a "tantrum" ... explaining that the makeup artist simply wasn't experienced with African-American hair and makeup. We're told NeNe insists that she thanked the makeup artist for her efforts, but she ultimately decided to do her makeup herself.

The new cast of "Celebrity Apprentice" has only been together for 9 days -- but a diva has already emerged ... and sources tell TMZ, it's NeNe Leakes from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

According to our spies -- NeNe has already earned a reputation for being the "difficult one" ... after an incident over her makeup this weekend.

We're told NeNe threw a tantrum because she hated the way her makeup artists dolled her up for the opening interviews -- so the "Housewives" star made them start over ... but she still wasn't satisfied.

After two makeovers, NeNe ultimately called the makeup crew off -- grabbed some tools and did the whole thing by herself.

Kelly Bensimon Bares Body In Black Bikini
Real Housewives of New York hottie Kelly Bensimon was spotted poolside soaking up the Florida sun and digging into a good read. has the latest photos of the reality star showing off her gorgeous model body.

The always fit Bensimon lounged on the Wet Deck of the W Fort Lauderdale in a skimpy black bikini which showed off her ample abs and bronzed gams.  

Like any true Manhattan socialite, she was decked out in chains of jewelry, Ray Ban sunglasses, sunscreen and her uber-chic (and expensive!) Hermes Birkin. Like many of the entrepreneur housewives, this fashionista has used her newfound fame to expand her brand creating a jewelry line for HSN, Kelly Killoren Bensimon.
Aren't women supposed to have curves tho? Because I defy anyone to tell me that men prefer Kelly's manly figure to a curvy one.

Vicki Gunvalson Dumps Husband Donn
Vicki Gunvalson from "Real Housewives of Orange County" isn't going to be a housewife much longer -- because TMZ has learned she just filed for divorce.
According to documents filed in O.C. Superior Court -- and obtained by TMZ -- Vicki filed for dissolution of marriage on Monday from her husband Donn Gunvalson ... whom she married back in 1994.

And there's this ... Vicki and Donn actually renewed their vows back in July of 2009 -- after Vicki admitted their marriage was souring and they needed a "new start."
Shocking (only because they did just renew their vows) in one one sense, but really now we've seen Vicki for 4-plus years now and what we've seen is a stubborn, insecure, workaholic and control freak who never admits that she's wrong while constantly demeaning and insulting her husband. That said, I think there's more to this story than what we're getting.

Danielle Staub: I'm a Bullying Victim, Too!

Completely delusional, this prostitution whore is:
Some of you know Danielle Staub best as "prostituion whore" or "coke whore." These were just some of the clever nicknames bestowed upon the reality star during her time on The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Now, Danielle has come forward to discuss how her former Jersey co-stars made her feel and how she dealt with their own brand of bullying.

But she doesn't attach all the blame to her castmates. When asked about the bullying she endured on the show, she was more apt to point the finger at the network, Bravo. She explains:
“The way they treated me was bullying and it was hate. I have to say shame on you. Shame on you for not dropping the cameras when I was being bullied. I was hiding from [my castmates], and then I’m physically attacked. Being attacked and having hate done unto you is a crime, and those who do that should be prosecuted. So I feel for each person being bullied. Someone could have helped me. It was horrifying. There wasn’t a camera guy, or a producer or someone to say, ‘I can’t watch what they’re doing to her.’…It was one thing if it was Season One, but to glorify these people chasing me and meaning me nothing more than harm, well, it doesn’t speak highly of the show. I’m saying everyone collectively could have done something. I’m still a mother, a person, a human being.”
Eh, we have to take this with a grain of salt. If you've watched the show, you know she's exaggerating, but not by much. However, she also was one to call names or allow members of her posse to use demeaning language. She isn't completely a victim here.

Teresa Giudice Demanding Raise To Appear On 3rd Season Of "Real Housewives Of New Jersey"

In one vein considering all her financial woes who could blame her, in another vein she better not get it into her that she's not replacable:
Teresa Giudice is on the verge of losing her spot on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" -- TMZ has learned the reality star's money demands are holding up contract negotiations ... and Bravo is losing patience.

Sources close to Giudice tell TMZ, the table-flipping housewife feels like Bravo's giving her the short end of the stick ... because she's under the impression that the other women in the cast are earning significantly more money than she is. As we previously reported, Teresa wants double her salary from last season.

We're told Teresa -- who's famously dealt with money issues in the past -- is ready to walk if Bravo doesn't cough up the cash. Bravo insiders wouldn't comment on the current state of negotiations, but did say the network is looking at possible replacements.

As for the other girls -- we're told they're all a safe bet for next season ... minus Danielle, of course.

Bethenny Frankel’s Mother Denies Star’s Claims
Bernadette Birk is fed up with daughter Bethenny Frankel’s claims that she was “never a mother” to the reality star.

Bethenny, of “Real Housewives of New York” fame, has spoken openly about her allegedly troubled past on her Bravo reality show, “Bethenny Getting Married?” where she was filmed making regular visits to a therapist to discuss various issues (including her lack of a “true childhood”).

However, the reality star’s mom tells a different story.

”[Bethenny] did not come from a broken home and her father did not leave her at 4 years old,” Bernadette claimed to RadarOnline in an interview on Thursday. “I left her father when she was 2 years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony.

“I was a stay-at-home mother and didn’t go back to work until she started boarding school,” she added. “I gave up so much because I loved [Bethenny]… I didn’t even consider it giving something up.”

In a July 7 interview with People magazine, Bethenny told the mag that her early years were filled with “destruction,” including “alcohol abuse, eating disorders and violent fights” – a claim Bernadette denies. 
“She is slamming me… and I’m sick!” Bernadette told the site.
