Rumors have been swirling that NeNe, who left the show for a primetime gig with Betty White, quit as a hardball tactic to command a higher salary in order to come back as a ‘Friend of the Housewives’ for season 8.
NeNe is putting an end to the speculation, saying she is “definitely” taking this season off and will not appear at all – even in a guest role. “I love Bravo – they’re my family – I may pop up and play with those girls and every now and then. I’m sure I’ll come back at some point, I just won’t come back in season 8,” she clarifies.
Wanna get a glimpse of Teresa Giudice‘s life on the inside – I mean, before her tell-all is released? The incarcerated Real Housewives Of New Jersey star just released excerpts from her prison diary. And oh, let me tell you they are quite the read – too bad her ghostwriter wasn’t available for re-writes!
Teresa’s attorney confirms reports that she’s working on a memoir, to be published once she is released from Danbury Correctional Facility in December. Teresa, who fancies herself the next Piper Kerman, will “tell the story everyone is dying to know: what life is like behind bars,” reveals James. L. Leonard Jr, her lawyer.
Amber Marchese has survived a lot – after learning she has breast cancer for a second time, Amber is undergoing an aggressive, yet cutting-edge treatment plan to hopefully eradicate the disease once and for all – and she’s turning to her Catholic faith to guide her.
Recounting how she discovered her disease had returned and the immediate fear that set-in, Amber has put her trust in God to keep her spirits up and her hopes high. When Amber discovered her cancer had returned she had been less attentive to her faith, due to her “amazing” life and happy life.
“Although the words came out of my mouth that I am a Catholic, I did not have God in my life as much as I should have. I knew in my heart I had wandered from my path, even despite my first bout with breast cancer and feeling God’s miracle once before,” Amber admits. “My mind was wandering around too much, looking for instant gratifications and becoming more and more selfish.” Why do I feel like joining Real Housewives Of New Jersey has that affect on people?
NeNe Leakes‘s dream has become a reality – she’s ditching her role as a Real Housewife for network TV! The Very Rich Bitch has been dropping hints that her new career move is a major step up – and that definitely seems to be the case!
Another red flag was that none of NeNe’s fellow Housewives spoke out on her leaving – not even a certain Miss WHO-S-A, yet Andy Cohen immediately tweeted about it. Something he hasn’t done in the past when a Housewife leaves or is fired.
When Snapped meets Real Housewives Of New York insanity (and hilarity) ensue. In what has become my favorite episode like ever, last night was the perfect genesis of drama (and melodrama) meets fun and friendship. Keep it comin’ Bravo.
The ladies are all Scary Island 2.0, but this time it’s Sonja Morgan having a total break from reality (gummy bears optional). After Sonja and Bethenny Frankel went head-to-head over whose head was more screwed up, the ladies chowed some lobster and went to bed. Drama makes a mama cranky and sleepy. Rather, it makes most people cranky and sleepy – it gives Bethenny and Ramona Singer a crackling energy.
They stay up discussing the Sonja-sodes (the Sonja Episodes) and Ramona confesses to being worried about her bestie. Both agree Sonja is turning to alcohol to cope with loneliness – something ironically they can relate to. This spirals into a truly touching conversation where Ramona opens up to Bethenny about her divorce from Mario.
Meghan snubbed Shannon Beador by not inviting her to her charity cocktail party, even though Shannon assumed she was invited. Meghan was puzzled as to where Shannon would get the impression she was welcome in their home, but Shannon retaliated on by calling Meghan out saying she got an email formally inviting her to the party. So there!
Meghan quickly shot back accusing Shannon of lying, but Meghan was then schooled by her veteran Housewives on how the whole filming process works. Silly wabbit – twitter tricks are for kids, let the big girls show you how it’s done!
Lipsa was spotted in some twitter photos posing with Eileen Davidson, who has also been signed to return. Eileen’s father-in-law just passed away and a celebration of his life included Lipsa and Harry Hamlin as guests, which presumably was filmed for RHOBH, although Lisa and Eileen are long-time friends.
