“Rumor has it that I will not be returning for “season 6” That rumor is true! Further rumor has it we will be back somewhere else on our own show! Hmmmm! “Watch what happens” Life is so unpredictable! Enjoy!” wrote Lynne on her facebook page on Friday.
And as for Lynne getting her own reality show, there has been no news or rumblings about any show. Perhaps Lynne is simply trying to ‘secret’ one into existence.
In other OC news, it is still unclear whether or not former cast member Jeana Keough will be returning this season, as there are conflicting reportings. The OC Register did however report today that during an event out, Bravo cameras were filming both Jeana and Gretchen Rossi. Guess we will just have to wait and see if Jeana is indeed returning.
What is certain is that Jeana is a part of Bravo’s new show – “Thintervention with Jackie Warner,” set to premiere 10 p.m. September 6.
Jeana will be one of eight clients who participate in an intense “thintervention” with Jackie Warner, a well-known fitness trainer who had a previous show on Bravo called Work Out.
According to a press release by Bravo, Jackie will “kick butt and inspire drastic lifestyle changes for her overweight clients who are struggling to lose weight and get healthy for good,” according to the press release for “Thintervention.”
TELL US – ARE YOU SAD TO SEE LYNNE LEAVE THE SHOW? DO YOU WANT JEANA BACK ON?
UPDATE – Lynne posted the following on her facebook: “I am broken hearted! I was so let down the way this came about! We were the last to know! I guess Bravo has to do what they have to do! I thought we had a great relationship! I guess I was wrong! Its funny how fast offers came to us from other places! Thats how we found out we were not returning! Funny how life can be!
Thank you! We tried to be honest about our lives! I thought thats what reality tv is supposed to be! I would like our new show to be totally honest! No retakes or do overs. You will see it exactly the way it really happens! Someone thinks alot of people will tune in! That makes me feel better about things! Its important to keep a positive vibe in life no matter what is going on!”
The official premiere party of the DC ladies was hosted on Thursday, but according to UsWeekly, Michaele Salahi and her husband Tareq Salahi decided to skip out on the party, much to the joy of her castmates it seems.
“I don’t want to see them; I don’t want to talk to them,” said the outspoken Catherine Ommanney. “I don’t want to be associated with them.”
Catherine even added that she would not return for another season of the show if the Salahis signed on. “Absolutely, categorically, no,” she told US. “I’ll have to have therapy the rest of my life to get over being associated with her.”
Housewife Lynda Erkiletian added, “I was very happy to hear that they had their own premiere party and would be attending that and not torturing us any more than they have in the past.” Other housewife Mary Schmidt Amons has also had it with the Salahis, saying: “I’ve really have had enough. The last two days have been a challenge, just to deal with the trauma of The View, overall.”
Radar Online is also reporting that the Salahis are charging up to $500 a ticket for the premiere party they are hosting. An organizer for the party however adds that proceeds from the event will be going to the Salahis’ bank account charity.
In other NJ news, RadarOnline is reporting that Michaele is considering suing Whoopi Goldberg and The View talk show for defamation.
Lawyer for the Salahis, Lisa Bloom, who also happens to be the daughter of famed attorney Gloria Allred, told Radar that the attention-seeking couple are considering their legal options. “All options are open right now,” said Lisa when asked if the Salahis will take legal action against the show.
Lisa believes Michaele was defamed after being called a ‘gatecrasher’ five times during her segment. Adding that producers of the show turned on the applause light for the audience when the show’s Sherri Shepherd told Michaele that “you should be in jail.”
“I believe she was defamed,” Lisa told Radar. “My client is not a criminal and she has not been charged by anybody for any crime.”
Ratings – And finally, the ratings for the premiere of the DC housewives is out and let’s just say the ratings were so-so. The show pulled in a mere 1.6 million viewers, in comparison to last year’s premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey which pulled in 1.7 million viewers back then.
The DC figure is even more lackluster when you add in the amount of publicity the show received. The finale of Bethenny Getting Married also drew drew 1.9 million total viewers, just above the 1.8 million season average.
“I’m going to tell her what I told her before — your house is in foreclosure,” Danielle tells PEOPLE. “I wasn’t lying and you did know,” says Danielle as she references a recent episode of the show, when she accused Teresa of having a home in foreclosure.
Danielle adds that while she’s also had some problems with debt, she was never in as bad as a situation as the Giudices. “Divorce put me in debt. I didn’t lie about that. But we’re talking $100,000. We’re not talking $11 million,” she says. “I think people need to spend within their means and if you don’t know what you have, you need to communicate with your husbands.”
This follows Teresa’s appearance on The View Monday, when she claimed her husband, Joe Giudice, kept their financial problems from her.
Danielle however makes it clear that should never be an excuse. “One thing that comes with marriage is that it’s fifty-fifty,” she says. “It is your responsibility to know these things. You can’t just throw him under the bus … That’s not cool,” adding “if you have it, don’t flaunt it because it will come back and bite you.”
The Reunion – As we reported, the reunion show was taped this week on Wednesday, and it seems something big went down. Below are the few tweets those involved with the taping have since made –
BravoAndy – We are wrapped in New Jersey. WOAH. Very unexpected stuff. I am pooped. #needmakersmark

Danielle has yet to tweet anything about the reunion and Dina twitted a lot during the day of the filming, meaning she likely did not attend the reunion taping, or if she did, she filmed a very small segment. No word yet on when the reunion show will air.
Star magazine is also reporting today that the classiness known as Danielle Staub will be hosting a birthday bash at New York City Gentleman’s Club Scores, on Tuesday, August 10. This is in celebration of her 48th birthday, and the invitation promises Danielle will treat partygoers to a live performance of her tortured lullaby ‘Real Close.’ No word on if the former stripper/porn star will hit the pole.
The finale of Donald Trump Presents The Ultimate Merger aired last night and surprise! She ended up picking no one.
Well not exactly surprising since Omarosa has been publicly dating actor Michael Clarke Duncan for the past few months. The two have attended numerous public events together and were photographed above as recently as July 25th.
On the finale last night, bachelor Charles Parker returned with a ring letting Omarosa know that he wanted more air time another chance with her. Omarosa allowed Charles back on the show leading to the finale showdown with Charles, Al B Sure and Ray Lavender.
Charles was the first to be eliminated followed by Al. And when it seemed like Ray had won Omarosa’s heart, he was also eliminated.
It seems Omarosa was making way for a season two as she tweeted this morning that a reunion show and second season was in the works. “Thank you for all of your wonderful messages- the SHOW is a HIT!! I will keep you posted on the reunion show and on Season 2 casting. xoxo!” wrote Omarosa.
In other news, Last man standing and R&B singer Ray Lavender did a video interview with TVOne during which he dished on his relationship with Omarosa, and his marital status.
On The Status of His Relationship Today With Omarosa – “Me and Omarosa are very good friends, we’re very cool. She’s a dear friend to me, a great lady.”
On The Status of His Marriage and Divorce – “The status of my divorce is still pending, I’m still going through it… I’m at a point right now in my life were if it’s fixable, I’ll try to fix it.” Ray then added, “That’s not saying I’m going to stay married or get divorced but I am going to talk it out. I will talk it out but right now it’s still pending. “
On His Advice For Michael Clarke Duncan – “My advice for Michael Clarke Duncan, you got your hands full brother, you got your hands full. She’s a great lady, watch her. As long as I’m out here man, you might want to put one of those lo jacks on her, cause whenever I’m back she might be there,” said a laughing Ray.

Just months after making headlines for her quickie marriage to blogger Nik Richie, formerBachelor winner Shayne Lamas is making headlines once again – this time for getting a dramatic boob makeover.
RadarOnline is reporting the 24-year-old got breast implants and looks to have gone from a modest A cup to an eye-popping DD. Shayne was photographed above on Thursday as she strolled the beach with husband Nik. And yes the two are still shockingly married.
Shayne and Nik got married in Las Vegas back in April after only knowing each other for a few days. Shayne was previously engaged to Bachelor Matt Grant after winning his heart on the show’s 12th season.
Nik tweeted the following to his wife yesterday, linking to the RadarOnline article – “Looks like the cat is out of the bag… nice +2’s @shaynedahllamas pics.” How romantic.
The DC Housewives have already proven to be the most controversial franchise yet all thanks to notorious cast member Michaele Salahi, who made headlines last year when she and her husband Tareq Salahi decided to crash a White House party.
As if that wasn’t enough, a new controversy hit early this week when the Washington Post reported that Michaele’s husband Tareq threw a drink on another cast member, Lynda.
Lynda, during her appearance on The View Wednesday, said it all started when she heard Tareq being verbally abusive to some Bravo execs during a press dinner in a Beverly Hills hotel. She said she tried to calm him down and he ended up tossing his wine on her. “Aside from ruining the day, he also ruined my beautiful Zac Posen couture suit!” said Lynda to the Post.
Even more interesting, Michaele admitted the incident occurred during her appearance on The View, but defended her husband, saying he was just defending her from past insults Lynda had hurled at her.
And there’s more folks! During the ladies’ View appearance, host Whoopi Goldberg, who was offstage during the segment, walked on the set, touched Michaele’s arm and told her to refocus on answering the White House party crashing question.
After finishing taping the segment, Michaele then reportedly told the producers of the show that Whoopi hit her, leading to an ugly exchange backstage between the Salahis and Whoopi. Whoopi admitted on The View this morning that words were exchanged backstage between she and the Salahis, saying Tareq began taking photos of her on his Blackberry at one point during the argument.
As for Michaele, she tells PEOPLE magazine that her experience on The View was “humiliating and torturous.”
“The first encounter I had with this woman is her grabbing my arm and telling me to change the subject,” Salahi told PEOPLE Thursday. “It was very inappropriate … They want to torture me. I didn’t know [being interviewed on the View] would be this horrific.”
Seems the DC cast will fit right in with the other franchises. A preview clip of tonight’s premiere is below –
Despite the show’s high ratings, Bravo has yet to announce a second season, though it is likely there will be a season two. This season has brought us a wedding and the birth of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy‘s first child.
In tonight’s episode, as Bethenny (slowly but surely!) adjusts to motherhood, her emotions take over when she must leave Bryn overnight to head out of town on business. With her new priorities, Bethenny is in tears as she heads out the door, leaving Bryn and Jason back in NYC. Luckily, once she’s back the new family heads for a vacation out in Montauk. Bringing along the whole crew, the baby nurse, Julie and Max, the trip is off to a rocky start when Jason and Bethenny realize they’ve forgotten a place for Bryn to sleep, along with many other essential baby items.
In other Bethenny news, just a week after some of the Real Housewives of DCcalled Bethenny their role model, the Real Housewives of NYC star is dishing out some advice to the DC ladies.
When asked by the HollywoodLife what she would like to tell the DC ladies, Bethenny says: “Be true to yourselves and don’t manufacture who you want to be on the show” she advises. “It’s not fool’s gold — you don’t go on television to be rich, famous and successful . You have to have something to back it up.”
She also advises the ladies to keep their kids away from the cameras as much as possible: “Look at what happened in Jersey,” Bethenny said “I haven’t really been watching, but I hear one of the Jersey daughters [Ashley] is in a fight with one of the Housewives [Danielle].”
“I would say keep your kids out of it as much as possible,” Bethenny suggested. “You’ve got to be an adult and know how to deal with it.”
Bethenny also took the time to thank DC Housewives Stacie Turner and Mary Amons for referring to her as their role model. “I think it’s really nice that the D.C. housewives say I’m the housewife role model,” Bethenny said. “That’s flattering and so nice!”
