According to Popeater, Bravo has given Simon, husband of Alex McCord, his own spinoff webcast which will focus more on his everyday life away from the drama that is ‘Housewives.’ But fret not as Simon will continue to appear on the NYC Housewives.
“I’m delighted to get a mini spinoff from ‘Housewives’ and so glad I didn’t have to get pregnant or married to do so!” Simon tells Popeater referencing Bethenny Frankel. “Seriously, Alex, the boys and I have a lot of fun living in Brooklyn, and these webisodes give viewers a chance to see all four of us away from the drama of ‘Housewives.'”
So what can we expect from Simon’s web show? Simon promises that fans will get to see him “shopping, cooking, accidentally injuring myself and attempting to overcome one of life’s toughest afflictions.”
The new yet to be titled spinoff is slated to air during the new season of the Real Housewives of New York, which debuts February 15 on Bravo.

It’s that time of the year again folks! With Dancing With The Stars officially set to announce its season 12 cast in about a month, rumors of the “stars” who will be participating are starting to swirl.
The most notable name so far is none other than E! reality star and former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson. According to E! Online, DWTS has approached Kendra to appear on the show’s upcoming season and get this, Kendra is actually interested!
Sources tell E! that Kendra is now in talks with the show’s producers and even recently sat down for a meeting with the network execs. “Her personality, combined with her ability to dance, is appealing,” the source says.
This news is surprising as Kendra publicly stated a year ago that unlike Kate Gosselin, she would not do DWTS because of her then new born baby. Though Kendra’s participation in the show would make sense as her former Girls Next Door costar Holly Madison did it 2 years ago.
In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting the show’s producers are interested in signing actor Lorenzo Lamas and former Baywatch actress Donna D’Errico.
According to TMZ, DWTS is currently locked in negotiations with both stars who are reported to have “serious interest” in doing the show.

Another day, another Pretty Wild star checking into rehab.
The latest is 20-year-old Tess Taylor, who TMZ is reporting has checked into rehab just a month after her younger sister Alexis Neiers was sentenced to spend one year in a live-in drug treatment program for heroin possession.
Tess’s enabler mother, Andrea Arlington, tells TMZ, “Approximately two weeks ago after a lot of coaxing from sister Alexis Neiers and myself, and after almost losing her life, Tess Taylor contacted Greg Hannley, owner of the SOBA Recovery center in Malibu and asked for help.”
Andrea adds that Tess weighed a mere 93 pounds at the time she decided to seek help for her Opiate addiction. Opiates include Oxycodone, Methadone and Heroin.
Tess is reportedly planing to stay at the rehab center for 12 months. Safe to say we will not be getting a second season of Pretty Wild anytime soon on the E! network.

UPDATE - Tess’s mom Andrea released the statement below and has also responded to some questions in the comments section -
“It was decided by our family that we should be willing to be examples and not hide our imperfections, but to fully be real and tell the truth. We want others dealing with this addiction to feel courageous enough to talk about it with their families and get help before it is too late. Making all these judgmental comments are hurtful toward this goal. To stand up as individuals and as a family, who are blessed to have an opportunity to shed light on this epidemic and educate others, instead of hiding behind closed doors and pretending we are perfect is a gift to our society in the long run and that is why we collectively decided to be real. If you feel otherwise, please educate yourself about the most important issue here and that is helping others. We are in a position to make it right and good for people to get help instead of hiding in shame. I am grateful to be on the slaughtering block, if by being willing to be vulnerable, I can save even one life.”
TheDirty website published some photos of the 16-year-oldReal Housewives of New York City teen today. As you can see (some more photos are posted below), the pictures show Victoria smoking and drinking.
According to the source who first emailed us these photos and more last week, some of them were taken at Victoria’s boarding school with some others taken during a Summer vacation in the Hamptons. The source also told us there were videos to go along with the photos.
The insider tells TheDirty blog that Victoria is a “mess” who “wasn’t against hooking up with a girl if she was drunk enough.” Here’s to hoping LuAnn can step in and help her daughter get back on the right path.
These new leaked photos are in addition to the youtube video that leaked almost 2 weeks ago showing Victoria rolling up a joint and using the N-word, something LuAnn called “unacceptable.”

It was only a matter of time before text book frenemies Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak got into it again. Matter of fact, the two ladies have gotten into major blowouts on each of the previous 2 seasons of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. This season wasn’t going to be any different.
But boy o boy were we close to making it a whole season without a bitchfest between the two. So close that they made it to just a week before the finale. Following the latest melee, both ladies have once again declared they are “done” with each other. But could they be really done this time? As Nene revealed the two have not spoken since the July incident on last night’s WWHL, with the exception of the recent reunion taping of course. Another Nene fact? She revealed in a recent interview that she will never forgive Kim for this fight, you know, being that she was the victim and all.
Moving right along to the new over-sized episode which begins with the continuation of the tour bus from hell as Kim continues to berate and abuse her long suffering assistant Sweetie. Sweetie’s latest offense is having her cell phone alarm wake Kim up. It’s now a brand new day and Kim is ready for her healthy breakfast. As the bus driver pulls over, Kim and Sweetie almost run over each other as they struggle to get to the bus door to smoke. In watching this, I can’t help but wonder if Sweetie picked up the smoking habit from her boss.

Kourtney Kardashian is finally confirming the reports that her son Mason Disickwill not be appearing on her upcoming E! reality show – Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
UsWeekly broke the surprising news weeks ago stating that the reason was due to bungled negations with the E! network. Kourtney’s beau Scott Disck reportedly wanted more money than the $1,000 per episode E! was offering for his son. The E! network declined to pay the $5,000 amount Scott wanted which led to him refusing to let them film Mason.
In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kourtney however gives a different reason for her 1-year-old Mason’s absence on the upcoming show.
“You’re not going to see Mason,” Kourtney told PEOPLE. “Scott and I decided not to have him on the show this season.” The reason? Kourtney gets “weirded out to have [Mason] on camera,” adding, “he can’t make the decision if he wants to be involved in this craziness or not.”
So does this mean we’ll never get to see Mason on TV in the future? “I think we’ll take it season by season with Mason,” Kourtney says of Mason who appeared on the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “We’ll see how it goes and how we’re feeling at the time.”
Kourtney & Kim Take New York Premieres Jan. 23 on E!.

After going 42 years without knowing her biological father, that finally changed for Stacie Turner as she reunited with her birth father just days ago in Nigeria. Her dad is to the left of her in the above photo.
The Real Housewives of DC star had her difficult quest to find her biological dad chronicled on the Bravo hit show. During the 1st season, Stacie, who was adopted early on in her life, discovered from her biological mom that her father was Nigerian. And though Stacie’s birth mom refused to reveal the identity of her father, she did hand her a photo of him. Stacie’s husbandJason Turner took that photo to the embassy and began to get leads on her father’s identity.
Fast forward to Jan. 10 when Stacie arrived in Nigeria for what she called a 2 day medical mission and most importantly, reuniting with her birth father Nze Augustine Onyema and her 10 siblings.
“Yes! just landed in Owerri Nigeria. We are guests of the Governor–doing a 2 day medical mission–then mtg my family,” Stacie tweeted Jan. 12.
According to Nigerian paper the Daily Sun, Stacie and her father were in tears when they finally saw and hugged each other. “An unbelievable reunion with my Papa in my village of Amaocha Afara, 1 of the 9 villages in Mbaitoli,” she later tweeted on Jan. 15 with the above photo.
Stacie also seems to be enjoying her time in Nigeria as she tweeted today, “I absolutely love this country and feel right at home.”
Stacie revealed that the “entire experience is being documented on film” with one of the photos she tweeted showing what looks to be a professional camcorder. And according to reports, Stacie arrived in Nigeria with hubby Jason and a big entourage.
All signs point to this monumental event in Stacie’s life being filmed by Bravo, more than likely for a season 2 of the Real Housewives of DC.

UPDATE – Stacie’s husband Jason Turner posted a comment below, revealing that both he and Stacie has a wonderful experience in Nigeria. Jason also reveals that while the Nigerian visit was documented on film, it wasn’t for the Real Housewives of DC. You can read the full comment in its entirety below.
On the 14th episode of the season (the finale is next week), NeNe’s first on-air interview with rapper-producer Jermaine Dupri creates tension with Kim. Elsewhere, financial problems continue Peter and Cynthia. Meanwhile Phaedra struggles to balance career and family; and Kandi tires of Kim’s bus-tour shenanigans.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Nene Leakes and Iman.
In other Atlanta news, while promoting her upcoming appearance on the Celebrity Apprentice, Nene dropped a bombshell to Zap2It when she revealed she is not interested in returning to the Atlanta Housewives for a 4th season.
“I’m not really interested in joining the next season,” NeNe told Zap2it. “I’m just not really interested right now,” she repeated without revealing her sudden lost of interest in continuing the show. Could this be a ploy for contract negotiations? Does it have to do with the recent reunion show taping? Only time will tell.
Nene did reveal however that she is currently working on a shoe line and a handbag line, to go along with her desire to do behind-the-scenes producing radio and TV shows.
And finally, Nene recently tweeted photos of she and Cynthia Bailey from the reunion show taping. Those are below. A preview clip from tonight’s episode is also below -
