know what they say…if you're not being featured on every episode of a reality show, the best thing you can do is make the media rounds so people either A) don't forget about you, or B) (in the case of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' "star" Marisa Zanuck) know who you are before you're ever seen on the small screen.  We won't see Marisa until the eighth episode of RHOBH (yes, you read that correctly…THE EIGHTH!!  That's not even a friend of a housewife, is it Dana Wilkey?), but she's bombarding our favorite blogs with controversial interviews.  I may just like her.  🙂 

You may recall Marisa has already talked smack about Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice and revealed that Lisa Vanderpump is nice…when the cameras are rolling.  Now, she's talking about how awful her co-star Taylor Armstrong is.  The lady is all about making friends, isn't she?  Not that I blame her…with the exception of my pink puff of fabulousness known as Jiggy's mom, I think she's probably spot-on with her personality perceptions.


Speaking to Celebuzz, the long time friend of Kyle Richards and former co-worker of Kyle's hottie husband Maricio Umansky, Marisa says, “I’m kind of a little crazy, funny. I’m one of those girls who make fun of myself. I do what I feel. I do what I want. And, I just thought it would be fun.”

Explaining why she decided to do the show, Marisa admits, “I thought it would be great publicity to see if there would be any other business ventures out there for me I’m interested in doing other than real estate, which I’ve been doing for 145 years. And I wanted to spice up my life a little bit and I hope I spiced it up in a good way not a bad way.”

Of course, it wouldn't be a housewives franchise if some of the women weren't butting heads.  While I have yet to see how Marisa factors into the dynamic (I have five more episodes before that happens!), I have to give her credit for her ability to read her co-stars.  She tells the site, “I have to be honest with you… I have one that I don’t like really, Taylor [Armstrong].”  How can you not agree with that logic? 

After the backlash she received for sharing her opinion on Teresa, Marisa doesn't dwell on why she feels the way she does about Taylor.  However, she also refuses to backtrack regarding her Teresa comments.  You have to respect that!  She reveals, “[Teresa’s] kind of crazy and I know I’m going to get into a lot of trouble about this again, but that’s my opinion. It doesn’t mean I don’t like her. It doesn’t mean that I think she’s a horrible person. It just means I think she’s kind of mean.”  Oh Marisa.  I can't wait to meet you in a month or so!

Meanwhile, in the world of Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif, we all thought the drama had died down once the couple reached a settlement and custody agreement in their divorce.  However, today, it was reported that one of the pair's sons had been rushed to the hospital for broken fingers after a "wrestling match" with dad Paul.  Adrienne immediately employed child protective services to investigate.  TMZ now shares that Paul's story of a carnival ride gone wrong seems to be the truth.  In fact, fair workers filed an injury report right after the couple's son fell and injured his hand.

According to the documentation, their son Christian "jumped off steps of [a] ride exiting, [and] fell on his hands. He wiped his hands off and didn't seem very concerned."

This report rivals the one filed by Adrienne who claimed her son received broken fingers after being kicked during a rough-housing session with his father.  The carnival worker shares that Christian's injury was nothing more than a "slight scrape" and cites that the boy "continued to ride other rides."

Can't we all just get along?  I mean, seriously, I'm not going to say that Adrienne is lying to get in trouble, but I hope both parents know that, going forward, the only ones hurt in their vicious attempts to undermine one another are their kids.  Why is that so hard to understand?
