The Real Housewives of New York City filmed their season 4 reunion yesterday with filming lasting a total of 12 hours!

This taping is a bit early as it is five weeks away from the airing of their season finale (a total of 16 regular episodes will air this season). However as always, the housewives got to see all the episodes that have yet to air before the reunion taping.

As for why Bravo decided to film the reunion so early (it’s usually filmed about 2 – 3 weeks before the finale), Simon van Kempen (whatever happened to his song?) tweeted yesterday that it “was impossible to find a July date when all #RHoNY were in NYC”. They have jobs or something?

Jill Zarin tweeted the above photo yesterday of herself with costar Cindy Barshop. Below — more behind the scenes photos of Ramona Singer, Alex McCord, Sonja Morgan & Jill.

An of course all parties involved tweeted during and after the reunion. And based on those tweets, it appears Countess Lulu believes the knock down drag out reunions fights are a “great time,” Kelly needed some help from her “fans” on what to say, Andy Cohen might or might not have lost his temper with the ladies, and if there’s one thing clear, it is that it’s still the Brunettes vs the Blondes.

Below are some of the tweets in chronological order –

  • CountessLuAnn – “Having a great time with the girls! #RHONYReunionShow”
  • Kellybensimon – “Every #reunion, @BravoAndy asks a quick reflection on the season.TELL ME how I’ve changed this season!I will quote you on #RHONYReunionShow”
  • BravoAndy – “We just wrapped the RHNYC reunion. It was EPIC. I can barely hear. (Maybe I lost my temper at the ladies!) I need a drink.”
  • Ramonasinger – “I survived the reunion! (and don’t worry…so did Andy haha)”
  • Jillzarin “Omg! What a day!!!”
  • Jillzarin – “With my Girls @CountessLuAnn @kellybensimon our own after party!”
  • Mccordalex – “Amazing #Rhony reunion & then @ramonasinger @SimonvanKempen @SonjatMorgan and I all went to #gawkerpride party for Marriage Equality!!”
  • Ramonasinger – “We ALL survived! Lol rt “@RHO_TWEETS: @ramonasinger how brutal was it?!””
  • Kellybensimon – “Love my @jillzarin @countessluann @cindybarshop @bravotv”
  • Mccordalex – “Intense day of filming yesterday for #RHONY…

Meanwhile, an all new episode of the RHONY is set to air tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. On the 12th episode this season titled “Sixteen and Skip the Sweet,” it’s a birthday blitz when Ramona plans a sweet-16 party for Avery, LuAnn meets with a party planner for her own daughter’s 16th birthday, and LuAnn throws a surprise birthday bash for Jill.

Bringing you some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills news updates today.

First up is Kyle Richards who revealed this week that she, like many many other housewives before her, is planning to pen her first book!

Kyle, who signed a deal with popular publisher HarperOne, reveals her book will have her sharing advice, sharing secrets for creating a happy marriage and also what it takes to be a responsible parent.

“I plan to focus on how I manage my crazy, busy life and will write about all my passions: My husband, family, work and the joy of juggling it all,” said Kyle to Variety. “I’m excited to share my favorite tips with fans.” For the time being, Kyle is busy filming the second season of the RHOBH which began filming in March and will reportedly air in October.

In other BH news, Camille Grammer is talking about her divorce once again, and this time, she is sharing that her two kids will not appear on the upcoming season of the show. The reason? Her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer refused to sign a release to allow Bravo to film the kids… a la Simon Barney.

“My ex wouldn’t sign the release, so you are not going to see my children,” Camille told E! News. “Mason really wanted to be a part of the show.”

Camille reveals her daughter Mason, 9, is upset about not being able to film but adds that her son Jude, 6, isn’t disappointed. “My son is too young and well, he’s a boy,” she added.

And while Camille would not confirm or deny the news of Brandi Glanville joining the cast, she does share her thoughts on Brandi. “She’s fun, she’s a hoot. She kind of tells it like it is,” says Camille before adding that she is able to relate to Brandi, who also suffered a very public break up after her actor husband Eddie Cibrian dumped her to be with his now homewrecker wife LeAnn Rimes.

“I feel bad for what she’s gone through,” said Camille. “We’ve gone through something very similar.” According to reports and tweets, it appears Camille and Brandi have hit it off and are good friends.

According to a new report, there is trouble in paradise for newly engaged couple Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

And their issues all has to do with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family. In Touch Weekly is reporting Kris H. is having a really hard time dealing with the Kardashian clan and is even getting to the point of wanting to call off the wedding.

The article points out that pimpmomager Kris Jenner is the main cause of stress in Kris’s life as she has turned into quite the nagging soon-to-be mother-in-law ever since Kris proposed to Kim.

Sources reveal Kris. J. has been “calling the shots” when it comes to Kris and Kim’s wedding. “She’s a stage mother with a type-A personality. She controls her daughters’ lives, and already she’s trying to control Kris’ as well,” reveals an insider. Kris J. “turned into the mother-in-law from hell as soon as Kris proposed,” adds the source.

The source adds that Kim’s mom is in fact the reason that Kris had to purchase the very expensive 20-carat diamond ring that Kim is sporting. “She told him, ‘Kim isn’t becoming a Humphries. You’re becoming a Kardashian. Deal with it,” the friend confesses. Ai ya ya!

If only the drama ended with Kris J. as sources add that there is also friction with Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick. Khloe is reportedly not a fan of Kris’s because she doesn’t believe he fits well into their family. “He doesn’t seem to get her sense of humor,” says the insider. And as for Scott, Kris is not a fan of his as he reportedly pissed Kris off by treating Kourtney and Kim like crap during a recent vacation to Mexico. “Kris cannot stand Scott [and] he can’t believe how long he lasted in the family,” another source says.

In other Kardashian news, Kimmy’s ex boyfriend/NFL player Reggie Bush has moved on! Or has he? According to a new report by TMZ this morning, Reggie is now dating singer/actress Melissa Molinaro.

And who is Melissa you ask? Well just a Kim. K look alike and the same girl that had people doing double takes in an Old Navy commercial earlier this year. Sources tell TMZ the two have been dating for months and became “official” last Christmas. Melissa also celebrated her 28th birthday earlier this month with reports stating Reggie footed the bill for her party. A picture of Reggie with Melissa is below as well as more photos of Melissa!

A week after her failed suicide attempt, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is now breaking her silence.

Amber, 21, gave an interview to Star magazine in their current issue, during which she revealed her plans to check into a California rehab center to get the help and support she needs.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” Amber tells Star. “I’m on medication at the moment to help me just relax. I’m getting the help I need from friends, family and counseling.”

When asked why she tried to take her own life, Amber had a hard time answering that question. “I’m in a vulnerable state right now, and I know people want a lot of answers. Unfortunately, I don’t have those answers yet, and I’m working on myself to get them,” Amber admits, adding that rehab is something she needs “to do to get better.”

So how is Amber doing today while she awaits rehab? “Before I go to California, I’m pursuing help with a psychiatrist,” Amber states. “I’m stable, doing OK and getting the help I need.” She adds that her daughter Leah is keeping her strong.

The suicide attempt occurred on June 14 after Amber suspected her boyfriend Gary Shirley had been cheating on her. She told Gary she planned to take her life, leading to a 911 call from Gary. She was then taken to an Indiana hospital and put under a 72-hour hold. There are reports that cops found her with a rope around her neck, and that she had also taken some pills.

Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports there was a review this Wednesday regarding the custody arrangement between Amber and Gary, and no changes were made. Gary reportedly has primary custody while “Amber has supervised visits once a week.”

Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas

According to a report that came out yesterday, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas is currently on trial for assaulting a woman in Atlanta.

The gossip website MediaTakeOut broke the story offering no proof but the word of a source who told them Peter, husband of Cynthia Bailey, is currently going through a bench trial (a trial held before a judge sitting without a jury) for assaulting a former female employee named Tamela at his now closed Uptown Club.

While no major media outlets seem to have confirmed this news, Reality Tea did uncover two mugshots of Peter, both stemming from recent arrests for battery.

The first mugshot came from a 2008 arrest in which Peter was arrested for Simple Battery. He was released the same day after posting $1,000 bond. The second arrest came a year later on December 3, 2009 when he was once again arrested in Atlanta on two different charges – Simple Battery and Battery with visible harm. He was released the same day after posting $2,000 bond. It’s likely the later charge is the one he is on trial for.

The sources add that Peter will likely be convicted and locked up for a year. As of the moment, neither Peter or Cynthia have yet to respond to the story.

This newly uncovered arrest records might be one of the reasons Cynthia’s family was so against her wedding to Peter last year. If you recall, Cynthia’s mom and sister spent most of her wedding day crying and trying to talk her out of it.

UPDATE – Peter spoke to the Sister2Sister blog and acknowledged he was on trial on Monday but states he was found not guilty. He denies hitting his former female employee and states she was “acting up in his restaurant and throwing plates.” Peter states after asking her to leave, he returned about 30 minutes later and was accused of pushing her. Peter said she slipped and the former employees who testified on his behalf backed his story.

According to a new report, the Bravo network is actively casting for the Real Housewives of New York.

With the fourth season currently on the air, the NY Post reports the producers of the show are desperately trying to recruit a new cast of “beautiful, well-connected and wealthy women for the next season.”

This comes weeks after sources revealed the network was seriously considering replacing the entire cast which includes Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and others. The execs are reportedly trying to find women with more wealth and glamour a la the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In fact the show producers reportedly asked two NY women, p.r. mavens Alison Brod and Di Petroff, to join the cast though they have both declined.

Bravo casting for the upcoming season of the NY housewives is not out of the norm as next season will begin filming towards the end of the summer. It is however unlikely that the network will replace the entire cast as we reported 2 weeks ago that the ratings for this season have been pretty good, even showing a slight increase from last year with Bethenny frankel on the cast.

My bet is on Bravo replacing one or two of the cast members, more than likely Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon. The reasons? Well Cindy is self-explanatory and Kelly has been sorta sane thus boring this season.

In other NY news, a judge ruled against Sonja Morgan once again in her bankruptcy legal drama. After filing bankruptcy last year following a $7 million judgement against her, the NY Post is reporting Sonja lost a court battle in her bid to get her former lawyers to pay her millions for alleged malpractice.

Hannibal Pictures won the $7 mil judgement against Sonja last year after she failed to fund a John Travolta film, as she originally agreed. Sonja in return sued the lawyers who represented her in the case citing malpractice. However last Thursday, an arbitrator denied Sonja any payout.

“I don’t agree with the judgment. I’m shocked,” said Sonja to the Post. When asked how she will pay off the $7 mil debt, Sonja responded, “I don’t know. I’m a hard worker. I’ll survive. I’ve got to meet with my advisers.” In court docs, Sonja listed herself as a “television personality” with an income of $26,000 a month.

And following Jill Zarin’s big revelation yesterday that Mario Singer shoved her during a confrontation, Ramona has come out denying Jill’s version of events. Ramona admits Mario confronted Jill about “making up stories,” about her but denies it ever got physical. And a look at the comments posted on the E! and PEOPLE.com stories show majority of fans do not believe Jill.

And finally RadarOnline uncovered some before photos of the Countess herself aka LuAnn including an old modeling pic, and those photos are below!

Well that was quick! Just days after being dumped by runaway bride Crystal Harris, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is moving on… with Crystal’s BFF.

According to a TMZ report, Hef, 85, has been getting cozy with Anna Sophia Berglund (pictured top left), who just happens to be a Playboy Playmate. Anna, 25, was Miss January 2011.

Sources reveal things have gotten serious between Hef and Anna, who has now moved into his room. In fact, Hef and Anna have taken to calling each other “babe” around other people, and during a recent movie night at the Playboy Mansion, the two were seen cuddling and kissing during the entire movie.

A source states, “It’s clear Hef has moved on to Anna.” Even worse, Anna is said to have been Crystal’s BFF in the Playboy Mansion.

And speaking of Crystal, she visited the Playboy Mansion on Sunday to return her $90,000 engagement ring. But to Crystal’s surprise, Hef actually decided to let her keep the 3 carat diamond sparkler.

“It was the right thing to do,” said Crystal to RadarOnline about her decision to return the ring. As for Hef, he seems to be doing better as he recently tweeted, “After all is said & done, staying single is probably the best. I think I just missed a bullet.” Ouch.

Meanwhile, it appears the Lifetime network is moving forward with their 2-hour special on Crystal and Hef. As we reported, the network was scheduled to air a special about the wedding titled Marrying Hef. However since the cancellation of the wedding, the show will likely move in a different direction.

RadarOnline is stating both Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson filmed scenes last week during their visit to the mansion, and it’s safe to assume Crystal’s Sunday visit was also filmed. No word yet on when the show will air.
