Following a lackluster freshman season, one that had fans longing for the good ol days of the DC Housewives, the Real Housewives of Miami ended last night with a supersized finale!
And while the ladies attempted to go out with a bang, they just didn’t quite measure up to their other counterparts. Example –
Party crashing 101? The Real Housewives of DC did it better!
Inappropriate sexy times in front of a camera crew? The Real Housewives of OC did it better!
Pre-wedding jitters & panics? The Real Housewives of Atlanta did it better!
Drinking and making inappropriate comments? The Real Housewives of NYC did it better!
Dinner parties from hell with psychic sidekicks? The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills did it better!
Bless their little hearts, at least they tried, and for that I give them a C- for effort. The episode begins with the glamorous Elsa as she sits with daughter Marysol to view her wedding photos. Mama Elsa doesn’t disappoint with her commentary when she states Marysol looked like royalty while Philippe looked like the help. And when it comes to being a grandma, just forget it! That ship has long sailed as Elsa feels she is way past the grandma appropriate age of 35, and is now too old to chase after the little crumb snatchers. The topic then turns into the number of times Marysol’s been married. Marysol says 2, Elsa says 3 or 4, while Marysol feeld she needs more time to catch up to her mother.

RadarOnline is reporting that while Teresa’s husband Joe Giudiceand Caroline Manzo’s sons were detained for the fight, it all started with a simple innocent act courtesy of Teresa at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana on February 23. A playful antic that didn’t sit well with one bar patron.
“She opened the champagne and just started spraying it everywhere and it went all over this woman near her,” said a source. “It was late, they were on vacation, and she was just having fun.”
However, the husband of the woman who got drenched did not take kindly to Teresa’s actions, as he physically attacked Teresa.
“It was crazy, he got really angry and punched Teresa in the face!” said the source. Whoa! At this point, Teresa’s husband Joe along with AlbieandChris Manzo stepped in to defend Teresa. “Joe, Albie and Chris were trying to protect Teresa and they just grabbed the guy and started fighting, and then people joined in.”
Bravo reportedly tried to break-up the fight to no avail. “Everyone was involved. It became a massive scene,” another source explained.
As previously reported, eight people wound up injured with two reports stating Joe stuck a male patron with a glass. Two of the injured patrons complained to the police resulting in all parties being detained and their passports seized. Eventually, everyone was released after local attorneys came in to smooth things over.
But the biggest shocker of all you ask? According to Radar, Bravo will not air fight on the upcoming season of the show.
No reason was given for this decision by Bravo. Perhaps the network feels this fight crossed a line in trashy reality TV, not that we think Bravo has any high standards to begin with. However, the most likely reason would be due to the legal ramifications, aka a lawsuit by the injured parties if proof footage of the injury causing attacks are aired on national television. And as we all know, the last thing the Giudices need is more legal drama.

Following a season of shocking eliminations and chicken oyster-gate, it all comes down to a final cooking battle between Mike Isabella and Richard Blais after beating out 16 other all star contestants.
Blais, season 4 runner-up, is arguably the favorite to win, even pointing out on the last episode that he had won 8 competitions in comparison to Mike’s 3 wins. However Mike, a season 6 competitor, has been on a hot streak in recent weeks, garnering some major wins with his confidence at an all-time high.
There is a lot on the line as the winner of this season will get a cool $200,000! The finale will air tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
Watch What Happens Live – Right after the finale episode, a new episode of WWHL with Andy Cohen will air with the winner, runner-up and fan favorite.
Meanwhile, following a tough elimination last week, Antonia Lofaso, who was also eliminated right before the finale on her previous stint on season 4, expressed her disappointment. “Its just like having your stomach just drop,” Antonia said after her elimination. “It feels worse this time. So much work to get so close and just have it go away. It’s so hard.”
Antonia is however handling the loss much better today, revealing she is okay with losing to her cousin Mike. “He didn’t have it out for me in a mean way. I think he just wanted to stick it to me for whatever reason. It’s all playful. You have to remember in those moments, you’re not given a lot of time to decide,” said Antonia to TV Guide. “We’re asked to choose and he chooses. If I had to choose first, I probably would’ve given him canned foods [in the Quickfire]. We had a very playful rivalry through the show where we liked to nudge each other. By no means was it disrespectful or hurtful.”
TV Guide also reports they were on the set for the showdown between Antonia and Mike on the most recent episode, and that it almost went Antonia’s way. Apparently, the vote was 4 – 3 in Antonia’s favor but following an off camera convo with judge Tom Colicchio, guest judge Wolfgang Puck had a change of heart thus Antonia and her knives were sent packing.
And finally, Bravo is currently airing a marathon of the show for those who want to catch up.

Teen Mom 2ended last night with a finale episode that was filled with mixed emotions.
On one hand, we saw Leah Messer beginning a new life by tying the knot withCorey Simms (more wedding photos below of the two), the father of her twin girls. A sharp contrast to Leah’s story was Jenelle Evans, who got arrested for breaking and entering, plus marijuana possession.
Following Jenelle’s arrest, her boyfriend Kieffer Delpwas also arrested for doing cocaine. Upon making bail, Jenelle appeared to have learned her lesson, as she made up with her mom, agreed to pay back the credit card debt, and even promised not to see Kieffer anymore. That was however short lived as she went ahead and bailed out Kieffer behind her mother’s back. As we all know, the two are still seeing each other and in fact, both were arrested just days ago.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and her baby daddy Adam had a big blowup after Chelsea’s dad had his car towed away from their driveway. Chelsea vowed again that she was done with Adam, who seemed more concerned with his car and belongings than his own daughter Aubree on her first birthday.
Though Jo and Kailyn appeared to be making some progress when it came to the joint custody of their son, things went awry during their attempt at mediation. Hopefully the two parents, who both seem to care about the well being of baby Isaac, will be able to work things out for his sake. However, there were recent reports that Kailyn was trying to strip Jo of his custody rights following his arrest last month for being under the influence of marijuana
Airing next week will be a reunion show with the cast.
In other Teen Mom news, it seems Amber Portwood and baby daddy Gary Shirley are still going strong for the time being. RadarOnline is reporting the two dum dums lovebirds are making plans to move to LA together.
“They want to start a new life together and moving to LA would be the best way to start over,” a source said. “And of course it would also really help with their future projects like book deals, a clothing line and more television.”
There’s however one slight problem. While the courts lifted the no contact order prohibiting Amber from contacting Gary, the two are still not allowed to spend time together in the presence of their daughter, Leah. “The plan is to get the No Contact lifted between all of them, move to LA as a family, and live happily ever after,” adds the source.

“It’s been nothing but a pleasurable experience,” said Mike, 32, of his time on the show. “It sucks to be sent home first, but I’ve made a lot of good friends,” he added. “America obviously knows that Lacey Schwimmer is a beautiful person on the outside, but everybody needs to know she’s equally, if not more, beautiful on the inside. I’ve made a lifelong friend.”
Do not feel sorry for Mike yet as there continues to be rumblings that he is being considered to replace Regis Philbin on Live With Regis & Kelly. Mike, a guest host on the show recently, confirmed ABC has invited him back to co-host a future episode.
Singer Chris Brown performed two songs on the show last night and it all went without a glitch as no windows were broken nor was he interviewed by show host Tom Bergeron. See, following Chris’s outburst at GMA last week, there had been some controversy surrounding his DWTS performance.
Tom went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this week and stated “I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him.” The reason? “Don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me to not say something,” said Tom, adding “cause I won’t really do that. Even if it’s just a snarky little aside, you know, ‘How was your week?'”
Also, dancer Cheryl Burke spoke out against Chris this week. “As a victim of domestic violence, I don’t agree with him coming on the show, but it’s out of my control,” said Cheryl to Extra. Wendy Williams also stated on her talk show last week that she was “disgusted with this little boy” following his GMA incident.
Next week, the stars return to compete on Monday night with a clean slate.

Following a so-so freshman season, it seems the MIA ladies will be going out with a bang during the super-sized 1 hour and 30 minutes finale episode.
On the finale titled “Mama Knows Best,” Marysol hosts a dinner party, inviting all the ladies plus her mother, Elsa. But Elsa stirs the pot by cutting down Larsa, putting the dinner drama at a high boil. Elsewhere, Alexia promotes her son’s career as a model; and Lea crafts a dinner plan with chef Michelle Bernstein.
And while most of the housewives appear to be unhappy with their “characters” on the show, Marysol Patton, a fan favorite according to our poll, is pleased with the way the season went. “I don’t like to pick on people; I pick on myself,” said Marysol to the Miami Herald on how she managed to stay out of the drama.
When it comes to tonight’s finale, Marysol promises it will not disappoint. “Things really get defined as to who doesn’t like who. The lines are drawn in the sand. Even I have an opinion,” she said.
Cristy Rice is however voicing her disappointment with Bravo for only focusing on the gala crashing, according to her. “Unlike the other 5 girls they NEVER showed you MY business (BriBri Boutique of which i have had for over 10 years) nor any scenes with my family or my friends. SIMPLY TIX DRAMA. Not very cool but it is what it is!!!” wrote Cristy on her facebook. Photos of Cristy and her kids, who never appeared on the show, are below. According to reports, Cristy’s ex-husband Glen Rice did not allow his kids to be taped.
There are also rumors and rumblings that Larsa Pippenis very upset with her portrayal on the show, which rivaled that of Camille Grammer on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, Larsa has missed numerous key promotional events for the show including her most recent scheduled appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
When it comes to a second season, Bravo has yet to make a decision. WWHL is off the air tonight and airing next week will be the first ever live reunion show for the Miami housewives!

We were able to catch up with Josh to talk about the current season of MDL, why he decided to pen his memoir at a young age, the growing popularity of his grandma Edith, and whether or not he plans to return next season. “I haven’t the slightest idea,” says Josh, though he expects MDL to return for a season five.
Not too many people pen their memoirs at age 25, which brings the question why now? Well, Josh credits a special person in his life for pushing him to write his book. “My grandmother suggested I write about myself and after careful thought, I realized I do have a pretty interesting story to tell,” Josh tells Reality Tea. “In fact, we had so much that we had to censor a lot and take things OUT. Believe me, there was more than enough material to go with.”
Josh believes fans of the show will get a better insight into the person he is by reading Million Dollar Agent, which also serves as an inspirational how-to book for making it in the dog-eat-dog world of real estate. “I am a very private person on camera, so I think the book will help people understand who I really am,” says Josh. “It is also a fabulous tool for someone who wants to get somewhere but does not know where to start.”
So is his granny Edith Flagg aware of her popularity with fans of the show? “She is aware. She does not understand the fascination,” Josh says, adding that she does “get a kick out” of being recognized on the streets and fans coming up to ask for pictures with her. Josh also reveals he is still working with the twins from the show, Marissa and Julianna Stoap.
And of course, we had to touch on the whole coming out issue as Josh officially came out as a gay man on the last episode of MDL. When asked what the response has been like from fans, Josh makes it clear the whole ordeal wasn’t a big deal to him. “People make such a big deal out of it like it was a life changing experience for me,” he says. “Yes I am a gay man… so is every other “hetero” in Hollywood.”
On that note, the finale of Million Dollar Listing airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. You can keep up with Josh via his twitter page at @JoshFlagg1.
