Apparently houses built by boobs are like way, way more important than historic homes designed by famous architects! Lisa Hochstein and her husband Dr. Lenny Hochstein recently purchased a home on Star Island, and that home is part of Miami's history.
They couple has plans to completely tear down the home to make way for a new, over-the-top, ode to plastic surgery mansion in its place. There's only one problem… the home the Real Housewives of Miami star purchased was actually designed in 1925 by Walter DeGarmo, a famous Miami architect credited with the Mediterranean Revival-style that helped define the city.
Which means the Hochstein's home is considered something of a historic landmark.
Local historical preservation activists and city planning boards have taken issue with the Hochstein's plan to destroy a beautiful representation of historic Miami Beach. Residents have since started a petition to bar Lisa and Lenny from destroying the home!
Last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills the ladies got wild and out in Ojai. I have to say last night was one of the most fun episodes ever and it makes you think if they all got their panties out of a wad, relaxed, and spoke to each other like normal people instead of obsessing over petty drama they'd all get along and be fun. But alas, that would be too easy and far too mature.
Things begin with the girls still in Ojai where Brandi Glanville has just dropped the eff-bomb at Buckingham Palace in front of Queen Elizabeth and her corgis. Oh, wait – no she didn't. She just said it to Adrienne Maloof, but the way these ninnies were acting you'd think this was the most official, classy, elegant prestigious dinner in all the world. I don't know why they were all getting up on their high horses acting like they've never said F-U before when we all know they use it. Right, Splits Richards?
Anyway, Brandi and Kim Richards were doing a big Ojai love-in and pouring their hearts out when Adrienne gets on the intercom with her whiny, donkey voice to announce that someone is crying in Aisle 5 and clean-up is required. Repeat, someone – ahem KIM – is crying!
So Brandi was forced to tell Adrienne to eff off and everyones' heads snapped around like Adrienne just announced that someone was peeing on a Chanel bag. Their mouths dropped, and they glared at Brandi as if she was pee culprit desecrating the holy statue.
Never a dull moment in the land of wigs and cigs, eh? Kim Zolciak has had one helluva a shitty year. I mean, sure she got a hubby, a spinoff, and a baby out of it, but otherwise it's been bad news blues. An eviction, a possible firing, a public and nasty feud with her parents, and now she apparently owes the IRS big time. Time to pawn some wigs and Versace china, girl.
A source NeNe tells Celeb Dirty Laundry that the formerReal Housewives of Atlanta star is in hot water with the IRS because she hasn't paid taxes in 10 years and owes them $7 million dollars! Um… what? I didn't know being a mistress was considered taxable income. 1099?
The news comes from a "close family member" who shares Kim has been committing tax fraud for years by not paying taxes on "hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts" Big Poppa gave her. Apparently while they were fauxgaged, he was also shelling out a reported $250,000 for her spending allowance. He also unsuccessfully tried to limit her spending to $150,000 per month.
The Kardashians rarely (ok, never) keep anything private. And joining in on the family's favorite extracurricular activity of making anything a publicity stunt, Rob Kardashian has taken to Twitter to discuss his relationship with ex-girlfriend Rita Ora!
Among the scathing allegations the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star and wannabe sock mogul makes is accusing Rita of cheating on him with more than 20 guys! Uhhh… this is really something for twitter? Anyhoodle, let's take a look at Rob's public whining.
Getting around the 140 characters rule, Rob posted a series of tweets beginning with: “When a woman cheats on you with one man I can live with that. People make mistakes, trust me. I have forgiven numerous times…”
Last week I had the opportunity to speak to Marisa Zanuck, the new Housewife in training on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Marisa is definitely frank, outspoken, and unafraid to give her opinion – which means she'll be perfect for the show! Marisa joined the show as a friend of Kyle Richards and although she's nervous about the reaction to her debut she's excited to share her unconventional but fabulous BH life with viewers.
Marisa discussed her experience filming with the girls, and most importantly dished on who's a bitch, who's awesome, and who's exactly the same behind the scenes as they are on camera!
Below is an excerpt from our conversation.
Why Did You Decide To Join RHOBH?
"I decided to do the show because I thought it would be a lot of fun. I know Kyle really well. I thought it could open up some doors or maybe expose me to the world in a way that I wouldn't normally be exposed."
Do You Think Kyle Is Accurately Portrayed On The Show?
"Yes. 100 percent."

So last night Real Housewives of Atlanta was filled with Wig People Problems. Oh, wigs were disappearing and telling tall tales and making excuses and dealing with dog poop and storming out and doing some math wrong and disappearing. There were wignanigans all over the place.
And luckily NeNe Leakes was on hand to provide riotous commentary on every last wigantic. And she finally got to use her Wig Be Gone (sold separately, includes S&H) – and poof! Kim Zolciak, her wig collection, and her stories that change as often as said wigs fled in the wake of a Housewives revolt. And we bid her adieu. Will we miss her? Sure. I mean, she is a snark lovers dream!
Other things happened last night, Kenya Moore's crazy got even MORE crazy as she turned her attentions towards another lady's man. Cynthia Bailey tried to pretend that going on vacation with all the ladies of the RHOA was her dream come true. Yeah, but instead of speaker phone invites (the classic!) we got sit down personalized invites.
