Hosting the reunion this year will be former NBA star John Salley. The ladies will all sit together to rehash the events that occurred this season, including the fight that broke out betweenTami Roman and Evelyn Lozada last week, over Evelyn’s admission that she had slept with Tami’s ex-husband Kenny Anderson.
Since that episode aired, there have been rumors that Evelyn also slept with her BFF Jennifer Williams’s husband Eric Williams, but we can rest assure you that rumor is very false.
The reunion will be airing in two parts. The first part airs tonight at 8/7c with part two airing tomorrow night, March 14 at 8/7c. Gloria Govan will also be a part of the reunion show, appearing at some point. A sneak peek is below.
In other news, it seems Royce Reed might be returning next season after all despite the recent comments made by Shaunie O’neal. According to TMZ, Royce’s would be replacement Allison Mathis was axed by VH1 after her ex/baby daddy Chris Bosh put up a fight.
Apparently, Chris did not want Allison nor their daughter on the show, and VH1 simply decided Allison wasn’t worth the headache. Sources say this move means Royce will likely be returning though producers are still hoping for a last-minute replacement.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, the NYC Housewife shares her opinion on RHMIA’s Elsa Patton and Lea Black. According to Ramona, Lea is badly in need of a makeover.
“I thought she looked like she was going to a costume party,” Ramona stated about the House of Gaga reject attire Lea wore to Adriana‘s gallery opening. “She looked a little ridiculous.” Oh but Ramona had more to say. “Someone’s giving her bad fashion tips. I think she needs a makeover,” added Ramona about Lea’s crimes against fashion. “It just looks like she’s stuck in a bad era.” Ouch!
And what does Ramona think of the glamorous Elsa? “I freaked out. I didn’t know if she was a man or a woman at first,” said Ramona upon facing Elsa for the first time on television. “I didn’t know if she was like a drag queen, I swear.” Telling it like it is indeed.
In other MIA news, the Miami Herald reported last week that three of the housewives – Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton and Lea Black — share a six degrees of separation with Willy Falcon and Sal Magluta, dubbed “The Boys” during the real Miami Vice era. Both currently seat in prison as Falcon pleaded guilty to money laundering and got 20 years in prison, while Magluta was convicted in 2002, sentenced to 205 years and ordered to pay a fine of $63 million for laundering cocaine profits to defense attorneys, bribed jurors and Colombian hit men.
Alexia, 43, then Alexia Figueredo married a Magluta associate Pedro L. Rosello in 1992, the same year their son Pedro aka Peter was born in Hialeah. Rosello, who cooperated as a government witness, was ultimately convicted of cocaine trafficking, and served some time in prison. Alexia and Rosello were divorced by the end of 1995.
Meanwhile, Marysol, 44, was the girlfriend of a convicted, big-time cocaine distributor who also was a cooperating witness in the federal drug case.
As for the role of Lea, 56, she is married to famed attorney Roy Black, who was paid millions to represent Magluta. When Roy was asked about the connections between the Bravo show and the Willy-and-Sal case, he simply stated, “It’s so Miami, that’s for sure.”

A new report by the HollywoodLife confirms what was reported earlier this week, which is that season 2 has already began filming. In fact, sources reveal the second season is going to blow the first one out of the park as Bravo has some tricks up its sleeves, mainly the plan to add one or two new housewives to the show.
“I know Bravo is telling everyone to ‘not officially announce anything,’ but I personally know for sure they have already started filming for season two and they have offered a few people contracts to be new castmembers on the show,” the source reveals, adding, “They will have new cast members. But that doesn’t mean anyone is leaving.”
The insider adds that Bravo is making certain this season is more dramatic than before, and what better way than to have more trips planned for the housewives. Scary Island 2 anyone? “From what I know, they are trying to really up their game for season two,” says the source. “They are going to feature more celebrities and more group trips with the girls.”
What is it you ask? Well, just a mere $1 million in cash! The mag claims Kelsey deposited the large sum of money into Kayte’s bank account. “He wanted to do something extravagant for Kayte,” a friend tells InTouch. “He’s loaded, so it was a drop in the bucket for him.”
And finally, UsWeeky reports that Kelsey is going to be a grandpa! His actress daughter Spencer Grammer is now expecting a child of her own. The pregnancy is reportedly in the “early” stages. Spencer, 27, tied the knot a month ago on Feb. 11 with James Hesketh. She is Kelsey’s daughter from his first marriage to Doreen Alderman. A photo of Spencer and James is below.
It seems things continue to get serious between Kim Zolciak, 32, and her baby daddy to be/NFL player beau Kroy Biermann, 25.
Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta,revealed in Life & Style two weeks ago that following 10 months of dating, she and Kroy were planning to move in together in preparation for the Spring arrival of their unborn son.
And this week on twitter, Kim’s 14-year-old daughter Brielle Zolciak let it slip that her mom and Kroy were looking to buy a certain $3.25 million, 11,000 sq. ft. mansion in Duluth, Georgia. A major upgrade from Kim’s previous 3,396 square foot townhouse, that has been featured on the Bravo show and is currently listed for sale at $499,000. In fact, Brielle linked to the home on her Formspring page stating “”newwww house.” She has since deleted the post.
Kim also tweeted Thursday morning, “Fingers crossed this house deal works out and they accept our offer!!!!!! <— another reason I can’t sleep! Lol.” And when fans wished her luck on the new home, she replied, “Hopefully they accept our offer.”
The home listing shows it sits on a 2-acre estate at the listing price of $3,250,000. The 11,066 square foot brick residence has 7 bedrooms, 6 full and 4 half bathrooms, 3 full kitchens, 2 laundry rooms, 1 media room that seats 30 people, and a four-car garage. The home also boasts a swimming pool, and an outdoor basketball court.
Pictures of the home exterior and interior are below. Brielle also revealed on her Formspring page that Kim’s assistant Sweetie Hughes is gay. When asked about her thoughts on gay marriage, Brielle replied – “my best friends gay, my moms assitant, hairstylists, andd everyone my life revolves around is gay. what do u thinkk?” When another fan asks her if Sweetie is gay, she responded, “Thats beside the point.” Days later, both postings are still up so there’s a good chance it wasn’t meant to be a secret.
And finally, according to a NFL salary report via USA TODAY, Kroy earned $392,280 for his 2009 season with the Atlanta Falcons. While Sportscity reports Kroy earned $470,000 for his 2010 season, and is scheduled to earn $555,000 for his 2011 season albeit he doesn’t get cut from the team. As for Kim, she and her Atlanta Housewives costars reportedly earned $150,000 each for their 3rd season.
Good luck to Kim. Here’s to hoping this home purchase doesn’t end up similar to that of Sheree/Alexis/Peggy/[Feel Free To Insert Your Own Bravo Housewife Here], etc.

Good news for all the Kate Gosselin fans out there… Err crickets, as the TLC network announced this week that Kate Plus 8 will be making its return on April 4!
The all new season will begin with an hour-long premiere, showcasing Kate, 35, as she takes her 8 kids on a trip to Sydney, Australia to ring in the New Year.
“They visit the beaches and enjoy the warm December air on the other side of the world,” TLC released in a statement. “The family meets Australian aboriginals and learn about their culture.” The network also teases “Kate takes a boat to the middle of the ocean in hopes of swimming next to sharks – in a cage of course” Those poor poor sharks.
Meanwhile, it seems Kate’s children do not get many days off. According to the HollywoodLife site, the kids are currently in Kingsport, TN, working filming for the show during what is supposed to be their spring break holiday.
It gets even better as a source tells the sitethat Kate displayed some major diva behavior when she “made a scene” at the Tri-Cities Regional Airport in Blountville, TN and had police give her an escort through the relatively small airport.
“Kate had the police walk her through the airportand into the parking lot,” the source reveals. “She was talking about wanting them to escort her limo to the hotel so the photographers didn’t get near her. But I’m not sure if they ended up going that far.”
The TN trip will reportedly be shown on a future episode.

Sean will be replacing Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi, 45, who got kicked off the show for not having an addiction. Michaele’s husband Tareq Salahi has admitted his wife has no substance abuse issues but claims she needed treatment to deal with the stress of managing her multiple sclerosis which she claims to have had for over 20 years. Which makes us wonder, if she’s had the MS for 20+ years, why would she need Celebrity Rehab with dealing with it now?
As suspected, the MS story seems to be a crock with a source telling RadarOnline this week that Dr. Drew Pinsky ran a number of extensive neurological tests, which all came out negative for MS or any other neurological issues.
There was also a rumor floating around this week that professional famewhoreHeidi Montag would be joining the show, but that report is false.
And finally, the ABC network will be airing a 20/20 special tonight titled “The Phenomenon of Reality Television.” The special promises an in depth look at reality stars who are famous for being famous including the Bravo Housewives, while also examining those who are cashing in.
The special will examine why things often turn so nasty on the Bravo Housewives series. Part of the press release states “20/20 talks to Kyle Richards of the Beverley Hills show about the ugly showdown with her sister Kim, and to Michaele and Tareq Salahis (best known for gate crashing the White House), who say why they believe the other DC Housewives turned against them.”
As for Bethenny, her segment will be more on the cashing in part. She tells “20/20” that being the focus her own show, “Bethenny Ever After,” has both its rewards and challenges. “Do I speak inappropriately? Absolutely. Is it at my own expense and no one else’s? Absolutely. I don’t need to rip anybody else. I rip myself more than anyone else,” reveals Bethenny.
The special airs at 10/9c. Feel free to discuss the latest news plus the 20/20 special below!
Is Russell Hantz really a softie inside—is the villain all an act for Survivor? When I get out there I get so in the game. I get to a point where I am focused on one thing: that’s the game. I’m able to step out of who I am and play this game. That’s why I’m so good at the game—I’m able to step out and be a different person. The difference between me and Rob is with him, that is what you see. Rob, we ain’t best of buddies and we’ll never be. I know good people, from the South mostly…I’m the guy who will give you the shirt off my back in real life. I’m the guy who will come get you at three o’clock in the morning and bail your butt out of jail. To me, what I see in Rob as a person is he’s fake, 100 percent. He is what he is on the show. Him and [Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains winner] Sandra, that’s them. That’s their personality, in real life.
What’s your opinion of how Rob is playing the game this season? I thinkhe’splaying excellent. I think Rob is doing a great job. He has it under control. I don’t know what happens at the end of the day, but if anybody wants to make a bet with me right now, I’ll make the bet. I know how it feels when you have control of the tribe. My tribe’s about to fall to pieces because I’m not there. Mark my words.
Why didn’t you try a different strategy this season—why you didn’t switch it up and try to ally with the men?
I did. You didn’t see that part. First I went up to Stephanie and said OK, I wanna align with you. This is what I’ma do, I’m gonna go to the guys, I’ma align with them, and I’m tell them I talked to you. I’ma tell them we have your vote so it’s gonna be four, we need another person, because Krista didn’t like me at this point. She thought she’d be conceived of that Natalie girl I’d be resentful of. So I talked to Mike and Dave, they were like high-fiving me, [saying] “Yeah man, let’s do this!” I said, “I’m telling you one thing: I talked to Stephanie. I don’t want to keep nothing from y’all, but if there’s any way possible I wanna drag her along with us, because that’s just another vote. Whenever you’re ready to get rid of her, we’ll get rid of her.” That was a lie. I wanted to keep her because she was like Parvati—she had a strategic mind like Parvati. So did Krista, but they don’t show Krista in that light. That was the best alliance I ever had. Ever. That’s how hard the game is—I still didn’t make it.
Can you comment on reports that you leaked Survivor spoilers? What is your opinion of people who leak reality show spoilers? It sucks. The thing is, it’s easy to say it was me, because I’m the villain. Everyone’s asking me this stupid question. I don’t want to give it any credit because that’s exactly what these people want—they want credit.
You mentioned Celebrity Apprentice—arewe going to see you again on TV? I’ll be back. It might not be Survivor, but I already have something in the works—and it’s gonna be good.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON RUSSELL’S INTERVIEW? IS HE ONE OF THE BEST SURVIVOR PLAYERS? DO YOU THINK ROB HAS A GOOD CHANCE AT WINNING THE GAME?
