Bethenny Frankel's custody dispute with ex-husband Jason Hoppy went to trial this week and things got extremely heated with lawyers for each party accusing the other of horrible misdeeds.
Bethenny took the stand to testify against Jason and accused him of threatening her and mocking her in front of their daughter Bryn. She also accused him of refusing to flush the toilet! And pointing out that there was negative PR about her. Cause, like, duh… Anyway the entire experience was traumatic for Bethenny. Umm… excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but isn't the true victim here Bryn?
The couple reconvenes in court next week where Bethenny will be cross-examined and Jason will take the stand. Unfortunately sources say things aren't looking good for Bethenny who is fighting for primary physical custody and sole legal custody while Jason is requesting joint.
According to TMZ's intrepid reporting, they are banding together to hold out for more money and refusing to sign contracts unless they're given a raise. Lisa Vanderpump is not part of this as she is on the fence about returning to the show regardless of whether or not she's paid more! Although Bravo is desperate to keep her! And likely if Lisa is returning the network will offer her more as she also has a successful spinoff for the network in Vanderpump Rules!
Todd Tucker has always had his reservations about reality TV but he's never had reservations about his now-wife Kandi Burruss!
Todd kept his composure in difficult situations behind the scenes on Real Housewives of Atlanta and in a twist of fate, in front of the camera this season! And none has been more trying than dealing with the formidable Mama Joyce! Despite all the drama leading up to his wedding, Todd could not be more in love with Kandi although he admits filming the whole thing for reality TV was trying.
NeNe Leakes apparently thinks she's worth her weight in gold!
While it seems all but certain that Bravo would like NeNe to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, the budding spinoff star claims she plans to ask for more moolah if the network wants her to hold a peach!
But NeNe doesn't think she's above her castmates – with ratings for season 6 being massive, NeNe thinks everyone deserves a larger chunk of change. “All of us deserve a raise,” NeNe announced to Life & Style. “I haven’t asked for more money yet, but I damn sure plan to!” NeNe reportedly makes $1 million per season.
After the scandalous videos emerged in the media, Miss Lawrence(known for being both Kenya Moore's BFF and a RHOA institution) called Porsha "ratchet and tacky" on the Russ Parr Morning Show. “Those are her beliefs granted, she is entitled to her beliefs. But if you want to hold true to your beliefs, don’t come over to the LGBT community or gay girls and want us to help you with your hair or want to use your gay slang or want to carry us like your purse. You stay over there and you stick to your beliefs," Lawrence continued.
Now it's Porsha's turn to share her side of the story. Also sitting down with the Russ Parr Morning Show, Porsha insists that sermon was taken out of context and Lawrence is the ratchet one!
Now that she's divorced, Dina Manzo is back in the dating scene! Where's Patti Stanger when you need her?! But that's not the only change in her drastically shifting life!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star started her reality TV career with her invisible husband Tommy. The couple separated while Dina was taking a 'I'll come back when you fire my relatives' hiatus. "Everything that I know is going away," Dina acknowledges, but she is ready to embrace the challenge.
The former spouses are locked in a contentious argument that led to bitter finger pointing that frankly (no pun intended) makes both of them look like crappy parents! It was rumored that their attorneys botched up a filing to make the courtroom proceedings private and the press would have free reign – well that appears to be the case!
With both spouses repped by famed divorce attorneys the argument became about who is the biggest famewhore, sadly. Bethenny's attorney Allen Mayefsky portrayed Jason as the vengeful ex, spiteful over losing the limelight when Bethenny filed for divorce, thus ending their reality TV career. Which seems odd considering it was widely reported that Jason refused to sign on for a third season of Bethenny Ever After as Bethenny was already pursuing her talk show (now also canceled).
