If you thought the second season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta was dramatic, then buckle up for the ride as the season three trailer brings even more drama!
In the two minute preview clip released by Bravo, we see Nene Leakes telling off her husband Gregg Leakes, while on a different occasion, Kim Zolicak and yet again Nene, get into a shouting match during an argument in what looks to be the back of a tour bus.
Teresa herself A friend of Teresa’s tells Popeater “if she wasn’t on the show, this all would be much easier.” Perhaps someone can inform Teresa being on a reality show that focuses on the lives of the wealthy isn’t mandatory by law.
Teresa’s “friend” adds, “Everything would be settled by now, but because she is now famous everyone is using the situation to get press for themselves and humiliate her and her family. It’s honestly got to the point where she’s not sure if she wants to come back for another season.”
Perhaps someone else can inform Teresa no one would have known about her gross $60,000 spending spree had she not had her lawyers file an objection to the upcoming public auction. Plus Teresa and hubby Joe might want to look into firing their lawyer for allowing them to further humiliate themselves by going public with the spending spree information.
“Teresa is sick of everyone knowing all her private financial business,” the insider adds. “She didn’t sign up to be on ‘Housewives’ so that everyone could look into her bank account. Millions of couples go through what they are going through, except no one knows about it. It’s just not fair.” Right, because millions of couples live in McMansions they can’t afford, and go on $60,000 spending sprees days after filing bankruptcy.
As previously reported, Rob Shuter, who wrote this article for Popeater, has relationships with most of the Real Housewives of NJ stars, so this info is likely coming from Teresa herself or one of her co-stars. No words for this new defense/excuse of Teresa’s.
In other NJ news, it is being reported by several websites that Danielle Staub can thank her co-stars for being fired by Bravo. Apparently the other New Jersey housewives gave Bravo an ultimatum to fire Danielle or risk losing them return for another season.
The good folks at Bravo Gossip published the blind item below via Blind Gossip.
“There are the usual vague press releases when someone gets fired, and then there’s the naked truth, which in this case, is much more interesting. This TV series cast member brought exactly the kind of drama to the series that producers dream about. Not surprisingly, it resulted in great ratings for this show. However, the rest of the cast members gave the producers an ultimatum: Either she goes or we ALL say arrivederci. Faced with the prospect of recasting the entire show, they reluctantly released their star. By the way, now that she is gone, an old cast member is seriously considering a return to the show.”
Seems very plausible.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TERESA BLAMING BRAVO? IF THE BI IS TRUE, SHOULD BRAVO HAVE CAVED IN TO THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES?
Since news of the tragic death of Dr. Frank Ryan, surgeon to Heidi Montag and the stars, hit this week, plenty of news regarding Heidi have suddenly managed to make their way to the press.
First, it was reported on Wednesday that the fakedivorce between the Hills star and her husband Spencer Pratt would be finalized on February 14, 2011, cause you know when you’re all heart broken over getting a divorce, you make certain the finalization date falls on Valentine’s day.
Heidi’s lawyer Jodeane Farrellconfirmed to TMZ that Spencer was served with the divorce papers on August 13. As we previously reported, California law requires couples must wait 6 months after being served in order for their divorce to be finalized.
As if that wasn’t nauseating enough, Spencer then told UsWeekly on Thursday that he planned on writing a fake tell-all book about his relationship with Heidi, which will include new details about her rocky relationship with her mother, Darlene Egelhoff.
“My last book, How to be Famous, didn’t make the New York Times best-seller list because it was in the self-help section,” says the douche. “This one is going to be totally different. I’m not holding anything back.”
Heidi is however fake pretending to be unhappy with the proposed tell-all book, telling TMZ she is considering fake legal action to stop him. “This is exactly why I left him,” she said. “Right now I’m looking into my legal options.”
The former Bachelor star tells RadarOnline in a new interview that he isn’t holding a grudge when it comes to his ex. “I wish her the absolute best,” said Jake.
RadarOnline reports the two exes have yet to speak to each other since their volatile sit down interview for ABC, which left Vienna storming out in tears. The interview took place after Vienna sold her break up story to Star magazine, detailing a sexless and emotionally abusive relationship with Jake.
“I wish her great luck. I hope she goes out and breaks a million hearts. I think she has some pretty realistic goals in her life, and I wish her the absolute best. Hopefully she’ll find that guy that she can spend the next 60 years of life with,” said the phony Jake.
Jake also shared that he hasn’t dated anyone yet since his break up, but remains optimistic he will eventually find someone to share the rest of his life with.
And what does Jake like in a woman? “I prefer blondes, brunettes and redhead or any combination there of,” he said adding that his dream girl will have a big heart and “be somebody that is really kind.”
As we reported this week, Vienna has moved on and now has a new man in her life named John Sala.
As for what to expect this season, a Bravo press release gives us a brief synopsis of this season’s story lines.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE 3RD SEASON OF THE ATLANTA HOUSEWIVES?
The 3rd episode of the season is titled ‘Foreign Relations.’ It’s off to Paris! After a spontaneous decision by Michaele and Tareq to join Stacie and her husband in Europe, the couples start to bond. Meanwhile, controversy over D.C. etiquette has the housewives questioning Michaele’s role as a host for high profile events.
Cat is hard at work on her book and getting her cover ready, when disappointment strikes. The housewives gather at Mary’s fashion dinner to welcome a celebrity hairstylist, but with previous drama still lingering, things don’t go as planned.
The new episode airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.
In other DC news, the NYPost is reporting even more debt for Tareq and Michaele Salahi. According to the Post, six of 20 vendors who worked on the Salahis charity, America’s Polo Cup, last year told HBO the Salahis owe them sums ranging up to $25,000.
This comes up in a HBO’s “Real Sports” profile of their charity. “Do we owe people money? Sure, sure,” said Tareq before claiming that he’s waiting to collect his debts from others as well. “It’s a trickle-down effect,” added Tareq.
As for Michaele, she just wants to get back to the couple’s old life. “We’ve been the ‘it couple’ for the past decade,” Michaele tells Bernard Goldberg of HBO’s “Real Sports”
The NYPost is also reporting today that the premiere party the Salahis held two weeks ago, you know the one that was suppose to raise money for charity, brought in a huge zero amount for charity, confirms the event organizer. The organization said it was promised 40 percent of the profit but was recently told the packed, cash-bar event didn’t make any money.
As for why the packed event failed to bring in any money for charity, a rep for the Salahis claims they know nothing about this: “This was not a Salahi event. They were not privy to the operational and management aspects of this event, nor were they compensated for their appearance.” Allrighty.
As for the show so far, I thought it would be a boring franchise but I found myself really enjoying last week’s episode. Bravo did a great job with the casting. Will likely start doing recaps in about 2 weeks or so.
TELL US – DO THE SALAHIS OWE YOU MONEY? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE DC HOUSEWIVES?
Rachel Reilly, a 26 year-old chemistry graduate student/VIP cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, NV, found herself the latest houseguest to be eliminated from Big Brother 12.
Rachel, the winner of two HOH competitions was ultimately sent home for being both a threat and an annoying HG. Rachel was a target from the start due to her quick developing showmance with Brendon, and success at competitions. In a new interview with PEOPLE, she discusses being eliminated, her future with ‘her man’ Brendon, and what she thinks of the other players.
Excerpts from Rachel’s interview below (Note: this interview was done before Rachel’s return to the house) -
Brendon went on the offensive to keep you in the house. He threw away his chances at half a million dollars for you. If your feelings for him were so strong, why didn’t you try to stop him, or at least make the same offer to him?
I did try to stop him. I did make him the same offer. He and I discussed which one of us we wanted to keep in the game when we knew that one of us was going home. It was a mutual decision. He told me he wanted to do it and NOT to stop him.
You were such a strong player, and Brendon couldn’t seem to pull his weight. Do you think Brendon let you down when it mattered the most?
He didn’t let me down, but I wish he would have won.
With each eviction, your outgoing message was: “Ain’t nobody getting between me and my man!” Do you think the showmance blinded you to a point? Why do you think that people were trying to break you up rather than playing the game?
I don’t think they were trying to break us up. I think they were trying to break up our strong alliance because we were both strong players. I still don’t want anyone getting between me and my man!
You said that you are Vegas, but Brendon was going to give up a chance at half a million for you. Would you have given up Vegas for Brendon?
It would be really hard to move to L.A., but it would also be really hard to not be with Brendon. Mostly, it would be hard to leave Vegas, but I think I could do it.
How strong is the bond that you and Brendon have? He said that you could be the mother of his children, do you agree?
We have a very strong bond. I think that we have a very good future ahead of us. Keep your eyes out.
What was your biggest mistake? How did it affect your game? Knowing what you know now, would you have not gotten involved in a showmance that alienated the rest of the house?
I think that I should have kept Kristen and Hayden. Kristen would have eventually turned on me, but I think that it would have bought me a few more weeks in the house. No — I trusted Brendon more than I trusted the rest of the houseguests. He would have always been loyal to me when the rest of the houseguests were only out for themselves.
You said that you thought everyone could be “playing harder”, who is playing the strongest game so far, and why?
Matt and I were playing the strongest games. We were the only ones that were not scared to win and to play. We weren’t scared to make decisions.
Tonight’s episode of Big Brother should be epic as Matt will likely be using his Diamond power of veto to get himself off the block. Since he won’t be putting up any of his Brigade members, it’s likely Kathy or Britney will be his replacement nominee.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON RACHEL’S INTERVIEW? WHO SHOULD MATT PUT UP TONIGHT? WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE REGAN/RACHEL SHOWDOWN?
Bethenny Frankel is showing off her post baby bikini body in the latest issue of Life&Style magazine.
The Real Housewives of NYC star was photographed on the beach rocking her blue bikini just 3 months after delivering daughter Bryn Hoppy. The magazine claims Bethenny’s photos were not retouched.
The 5’6 star is back to her pre-pregnancy weight of 118 pounds and shares her diet tips with the mag. “There’s been no real drastic anything,” Bethenny, 39, says. “I’ve really been eating, just not like a crazy person. Taste everything, eat nothing.”
Bethenny states she’s in a healthy place now and no longer does extreme diets. “I was owned by dieting and I hated myself,” she says. “I’ll never be extreme again, it just doesn’t work.”
In other Bravo housewives bikini news, Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi is also showing off her bikini body. Why exactly? Well the 44-year-old reality star/alleged White House party crasher wants to prove to the world that she’s not anorexic!
“I’m not anorexic!” insists Michaele in the latest issue of InTouch Weekly. “I’m a skinny girl. I always was. I’ve never had an eating disorder in my life. And it hurts to be called anorexic.”
Michaele, who along with her husband Tareq, has been accused by numerous individuals and companies of owing them money also shares with the mag that she would like to get a boob job within the next 6 months. Excerpts from Michaele’s interview below -
How do you defend yourself?
Honestly, I can’t believe those women have so much time to devote to my weight. If they get out there and move, they will look like me and be thin, and it’ll all be good.
What’s your diet like?
I start the day with a hot chocolate and cereal — I love Lucky Charms or Kashi GoLean — then some fruit. I don’t really eat a lot in the middle of the day. I have an early dinner, which is always a salad, with plain chicken, grilled or broiled.
What about plastic surgery — would you ever do it?
Definitely. I would love to do a whole lot of Botox and maybe get collagen, too. I also think it would be great to have boobs. I’m a B [cup], so I’d get a C. I’m all for anything you can do to make yourself look and feel better.
When would you do it?
Hopefully, within the next six months. But my husband doesn’t want me to do my boobs!
