Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer took some time to relax poolside this week in Palm Springs, CA!

Camille, 43, who is currently in the midst of a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, spent some time lounging by the pool with her two kids Mason, 9, and Jude, 7, as well as her new younger beau 35-year-old attorney Dimitri Charalambopoulos.

More bikini photos of Camille below as well as a new pic with her boyfriend Dimitri!

And speaking of Kelsey, he recently revealed his plans to have another baby with his new child bride Kayte Walsh. If you recall, Kayte was pregnant for Kelsey last year but ultimately suffered a miscarriage. When asked if he had plans to expand his family, Kelsey told Hollyscoop: “We have plans and we’re working on it so we’ll see when it happen.”

In other RHOBH news, some of the show’s stars are now slamming newbie Dana Wilkey or rather her tacky $25,000 sunglasses and the bragging that went along with it!

On the last episode of the show, Dana attended a barbecue party put together by Adrienne Maloof during which she made certain to let the other ladies know just how much her sunglasses cost! The reason for the high price? The sunglasses came with real diamonds. Below, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, and Brandi Glanville bash Dana in their latest Bravo blogs

Lisa — “Seeing the barbecue at Adrienne’s I was sure glad I missed it. Dana, with her million dollar sunglasses, I personally find off putting. Who says that? Sorry but it’s disgusting. I think one of the prerequisites in this arena is honesty. I have no desire to invest in that nonsense, regardless of Kyle once again saying how nice they are. I see it for what it is.”

Kyle — “I still don’t know Dana very well, but she has always been nice to me. However, I do think spending $25,000 on a pair of sunglasses is ridiculous. You do see some outrageous things and people in Beverly Hills. I’m not always quite sure what to make of it. I am always a little skeptical when I see people talking about how much money they have.”

Brandi — “Dana was so busy bragging about her over-the-top sunglasses that she barely acknowledged I was there. I don’t think she earned any points with that.”

Yikes! As for Dana, she attempted to defend herself and her diamond studded sunglasses as she posted the following –

“Now we come to the glasses — there is a store on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills called Luxuriator, and it is the infamous store that I got my $25,000 glasses at. Take my word for it, the store is breathtaking! Actually Franco, the owner who is an amazing personality in his own right, has glasses that go up to $100,000 — so my pair is small fry. Certainly these sunglasses are not for someone who loses their glasses a lot or hasn’t bought their fill of cars and jewelry. They aren’t going to feel super different then than a regular pair of high-end glasses. But if you are a person who loves to wear jewels daily and can afford it, I can tell you they are beautiful and loads of fun to wear, because, as we have seen from the show, they are a great conversation piece. The way I look at it these glasses are piece of art. Jewelry with function not just shades. To each their own!”

Allrighty then! More photos of Camille below!

According to the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is very well headed for another breakdown.

Following her arrest last December in addition to a suicide attempt this summer which led to a 2-month rehab stint, the mag is reporting Amber, 21, is drinking and partying more now than before. And the source of the story is none other than Amber’s brother Shawn Portwood.

According to Shawn, Amber is spending more time out partying than she is reconnecting with her 2-year-old daughter Leah. “At least three times a week, Amber will go out to bars and clubs,” Shawn admits to Life & Style.

“Amber could see Leah every day, but she sees her maybe three times a week,” adds Shawn. “I don’t even know if Amber wants full custody of Leah. She enjoys her freedom too much right now.” As reported, Amber’s baby daddy Gary Shirley, who admitted last month that he was homeless, currently has custody of little Leah.

On Sept. 15, Amber was spotted at 59th Street Pub in Anderson and again on Sept. 27 dancing and downing beers at Jimbo’s Pub and Club in Anderson, Ind. “My friends were there and said she drank near a whole bottle of white wine,” reveals Anderson local Shane Butt. “She was kissing her new boyfriend [Jesse Stone] and even posing with her bottle of wine. It seems like rehab didn’t help too much.”

Shawn adds that Amber would rather be out at bars seeking attention from the Anderson locals than spending time with Leah. “She likes to go out where people see her and recognize her,” shares Shawn. In Amber’s defense, previous reports have stated she’s only allowed to see Leah twice a week during supervised visitation so perhaps partying is her unhealthy way of dealing with not having custody of her daughter.

While Amber is said to be dating new beau Jesse Stone (pictured below), Gary tweeted days ago that Amber was still trying to get back together with him. Gary wrote, “Spent a Lil time with Amber, just goes to show me that our relationship is like a burnt log and it can’t be relit.”

He then added: “I said no to her on getting back together she cried so I gave it some thought and she started calling me names like trash ect.” Gary broke up with Amber three weeks ago after getting a giant tattoo of her name on his back. He accused her of cheating of him.

Doesn’t sound like this dysfunctional relationship will be ending anytime soon! Below is a photo of Amber’s new boyfriend Jesse.

Bringing you an all new photo post of the Real Housewives of New Jersey as the cast attended the New Jersey Fashion & Beauty Week 2011 at the Pleasantdale Chateau on October 3, 2011 in West Orange, New Jersey.

As we reported days ago, Teresa Giudice was not in attendance as she is currently on the outs with the cast. Below are more photos of the RHONJ cast including Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile and her family, plus Melissa Gorga and hubby Joe!

Meanwhile, based on the previews by Bravo for the upcoming RHONJ finale, it appears most fans will finally get to see the showdown between Caroiline and Teresa that they have been waiting for.

And of course it all has do to with Teresa taking not so subtle digs at her Caroline in her cookbook Fabulicious. We reported back in May that Teresa took some shots at her sis-in-law Melissa in the same book (Really — who takes shots at people in a cookbook?). Well apparently, Teresa didn’t end with Melissa.

In the excerpt posted below, Teresa disses Caroline’s Italian background or lack there off when she states: “I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …).” Wowzers. Below is the full excerpt from Tre’s book –

“I can’t help it. Every time I sit down to write this intro to my Italian Family Cookbook, two things keep popping into my head: that cheesy Olive Garden commercial, “When you’re here, you’re family”; and what I said about Caroline Manzo when she insulted my meatballs on the Rachael Ray show: “Caroline’s as Italian as the Olive Garden.

If you read Skinny Italian, you know I’m not a huge fan of Olive Garden because it takes traditional healthy Italian dishes and turns them into heart-clogging servings of ungodly proportions. (Forget Jersey Shore, it’s the Olive Garden that gives us Italians a bad name!) I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …)”

With digs like that, it’s no wonder Teresa now finds herself friendless! Teresa, who apparently sees herself as a victim, also took to her Bravo blog this week to fire back at her costars, mostly Jacqueline who called her “scum” during a recent twitter rant.

Below is an excerpt from Tre’s blog –

“As for the craziness on Twitter, I don’t think it’s a very healthy place to be right now (I just can’t take anyone who’s suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I’m going to slowly slip out of it, and maybe take a little break for a while. I have a big project I have to work on, and I want to spend every other second with my family. Don’t worry, I’ll be back!”

Teresa has yet to begin that twitter break as she has been tweeting up a storm since she posted that blog. Even more interesting, a source told UsWeekly that Teresa has a “ghostwriter” for her Bravo blogs!

Below is another excerpt from Tre’s blog about her costars from the most recent episode of the show –

“I will say I didn’t like everything they showed of course. The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends. That’s why you see me dancing around and trying to have fun in Punta Cana. It’s not until I watch the shows that I see all four of the other ladies having a go at me. On the show, I might talk about a certain incident and how I felt about it, but I don’t talk about personalities or their kids or how they spend their money, or how smart I think they are… I say, “She pissed me off, but I’m not going to let it bother me.” Cut to everyone else: “Teresa can’t be reasoned with, Teresa was dropped on her head as a baby,” all about my “character flaws” and how I didn’t “grow up,” how I’m “cuckoo.” I had no idea they were bashing me like that. Although, tell you the truth, even if I did, I wouldn’t do it back. I’m just not like that. It’s not fun to watch though.”

The drama never ends! More photos from the NJ Fashion & Beauty Event below!

Following the ambush on the recent episode of Basketball Wives LA, led by her costars, Draya Michele is now speaking out on doing the show plus the way she was bullied treated by said costars.

Below are excerpts from Draya’s interview with Sister 2 Sister –

Tracy: Has the show been what you expected?
Draya: It’s pretty much worse than I expected only because I’m always the topic of the discussion and I really didn’t expect to play such a major role

Tracy: Do you think they haven’t warmed to you because you’re not a wife?
Draya: I think they don’t have a respect for me because I’m not with any basketball players. I don’t think it’s about not being a wife. It’s only two people that’s married; everybody else is just technically a babymama.

Tracy: Your co-star Imani Showalter called you “worthless.” She apologized, but why do you think she and some of the others have such a strong and negative opinion of you?
Draya: They say a lot of things, but I’ve heard worse things from people who are more important. They’re not that important to me, but the things that they say are not that important. Everybody has dirt. Everybody has issues. If you can throw stones at somebody else, there’s obviously something going on with you. I don’t care to know about anybody’s personal life. I’m in my business.

Tracy: You’ve said on the show that you’re going to stop being nice. When?
Draya: You can expect a lot of things. Just when you think it’s safe, it’s kinda not again. I can’t fly off the hinges at first … If I fight with everybody, there’s no more me. I know what I’m doing. I’m playing my part the way that I’m supposed to. I don’t kiss nobody’s butt.

On twitter, a fan asked Draya what the other ladies would have to talk about on the show if she wasn’t on it, she responded: “Menopause !!!! Lol” Ouch.

And while Draya, real name Andraya M. Howard, maintained on the show that the police report detailing how she neglected her son was fake, the reporter who first broke the news back in January insists the report was absolutely the real deal. Draya even went as far as to claim the reporter lost his job for doing the story — which also appears to be false. Below is a statement given by Philadelphia journalist Steve Henshaw

“This item was published in the 9/16/11 edition of the Eagle about Howard’s court case. The article I wrote was based entirely on the police report (the affidavit of probable cause) that I had in hand. After Howard’s mother called to complain that the story was inaccurate, I called the police officer and he said the story was very accurate. Howard’s entering ARD status is tantamount to a guilty plea. Why would a judge order her to 40 hours of family counseling if he/she didn’t believe that what the police officer reported he saw/heard was true? Andraya Howard shows her character when she accuses the police and the paper of making up facts after she has under oath before a judge accepted the punishment.”

The original article written by Steve was published back in January. A new article was written in September, which revealed Draya was in fact sentenced for the child neglect case involving her son. Below is an excerpt –

“Howard was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, which allows first-time offenders to clear their record after serving probation. She was sentenced in Berks County Court to two years of probation and ordered to attend family counseling and perform 40 hours of community service on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child.”

According to the original report (which is still up on the website), Draya — a former stripper — was arrested back in January of this year after her 7-year-old son called 911 at about 2 a.m. and told dispatchers he was home alone. He told a Patrolman he called his mother’s cell phone about 20 times to find out where she was. She said she was at a tanning salon and would be home soon.

Cops revealed the apartment looked like it had been ransacked, with women’s undergarments scattered throughout the living room. A small dog was in a cage, and dog feces and dog urine were in several places in the apartment. Cops witnessed Draya’s son getting a TV dinner from the freezer, standing on the counter and putting it into the microwave. Draya’s mom was then given custody of her son.

So there you have it folks! It appears Draya lied on the show about a reporter “faking” a police report. Plus why would anyone or any journalist for that matter go through the process of falsifying a police report as that’s a pretty serious offense. Not that this excuses the behavior of some of Draya’s costars or anything.

As for Draya, she maintains she loves her son very much. While the episode aired on Monday night, she tweeted: “Of course im going to cry. I’m a mother. This involves my child. I will cut, steal, kill for him.” Below are some photos of Draya with her son Kniko

Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is dealing with the end of her 17-year-marriage in a very unique way!

The 49-year-old mom of two reveals to In Touch Weekly magazine that she spent over $7,500 to get herself a divorce plastic surgery makeover! Who knew there was such a thing?

Vicki, who reveals she “spent many nights crying” after filing for divorce from Donn Gunvalson, is now at peace with her decision especially after falling for her new younger beau, Brooks Ayers.

Vicki tells the mag she now has a new lease on life. “I want to have it all!” she states. And what better way to have it all than with a full body makeover. Vicki turned to plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Pozner who performed a “Divorce Do-over” on her. “She just wanted a little pick-me-up,” says the Boca Raton, Fla. based doctor.

So what exactly did Vicki do to her body? For starters, she spent $5,700 to get Botox, lasers and fillers on her face. Dr. Pozner rejuvenated Vicki’s face with lasers, injected Botox between her brows, and added fillers to her cheeks, jawline and lips to add volume.

“It hurt, but facials didn’t work and this did,” says Vicki who struggled with painful cystic acne for years. She confesses she was “insecure” about her skin.

As for her body, which she admits has caused her many years of insecurity, Vicki who states she fluctuates between a size 6 and a size 8 confesses: “I feel like I look big compared to everyone else on the show.”

So right before taping began on the seventh season of the RHOC, Dr. Pozner slimmed Vicki’s thighs using a body sculpting technique which freezes fat cells, and treated the cellulite in her mid-section with a contour machine.

Vicki reveals she is more than pleased with the results! “Some doctors do too much and you look like a dead Barbie doll. I didn’t want to look plastic.” She adds: “There’s life after divorce. I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time!”

Does Vicki look better with her face and body overhaul? We’ll let you be the judge! More after photos of Vicki below!

Newlyweds/non-famewhores Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are already renewing their wedding vows despite being married for only a month-and-a-half!

The made for TV vow renewal for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars was all courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres! On a pre-taped episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (scheduled to air today), Kimmie, 30, and her NBA hubby Kris, 26, were candid with Ellen about their newlywed life and what they’d do differently about their Aug. 20 wedding.

“[I’d] elope,” said Kimmie Kakes. “I would say [have a] longer after-party, but I was so crazy for an entire month…I literally went crazy. It was so stressful,” she added of the wedding which she planned with the help of pimpmomager Kris Jenner in only a few months.

Kris also shared his regret, echoing Kimmie’s statement by stating he would have wanted “a longer after party.”

The two are currently doing a ton of press in other to promote their E! Wedding Special — Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event which is set to air this Sunday on E! at 8 p.m. ET.

In other Kardashian news, Khloe Kardashian, who co-hosted the fourth hour of the Today Show on Monday, opened up about her fertility struggles.

Khloe, who’s been married to NBA hubby Lamar Odom for over 2 years now (yes it’s been 2 years already), has always been vocal about wanting kids right away. However, that has yet to happen for Khloe.

“We would love to have kids,” said Khloe, 27. “It’s so hard. I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant. I never knew about that. No one ever taught me that. When you have schedules such as ours, it’s really hard to hit that mark. So it’s frustrating, but definitely, I want to have kids. It’s scary [thinking], ‘Oh God, what if I physically can’t have kids?’”

The Kardashians continue their take over of the Today Show this week as Kris Jenner will co-host today, Kourtney Kardashian will co-host tomorrow, and Kimmie Kakes will finish off by co-hosting on Friday.
