Oh, it's so sad when the holidays are over. I don't know about you but I get post-Christmas depression. So instead lets gawk at how our favorite reality stars spent their holidays! Below are tweets and photos for the holiday wrap up. Enjoy!
After longtime speculation that Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy wouldn't make it through the third year of marriage following a rocky and difficult second year featured on Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny finally announced the couple was separating.
The shocking part of the announcement was the timing! Bethennyrevealed the split two days before Christmas.
Bethenny has been coy about her relationship with Jason for months, even skirting the issue on a recent WWHL appearance. Multiple reports emerged that the couple broke up around Thanksgiving when they spent the holiday separately. Jason has been conspicuously absent from photos and Bethenny's twitter in recent months as well.
Many wonder why Bethenny waited so long to reveal that her marriage was over – and just why she timed it so close to the holidays? While I suspected it was so the news would get less attention in the wake of holiday related events, according to RadarOnline Bethenny just couldn't keep their separation a secret from friends and family any longer! She really expects us to believe their friends and family weren't aware they haven't been together for over a month? Ok then…
"Jason wanted to wait till after the holidays were over but Bethenny insisted that she could not carry on the charade of pretending to be a happy couple any longer, especially not in front of their closest friends and family," the source explains. "Basically, in the end Bethenny decided, no more secrets and lies – let's get it out in the open, for better or for worse."
Well it's the day before Christmas, commonly known as Christmas Eve, and all anyone on the island of Anguilla wants is for Kenya Moore to get some help – and go home! Going on vacation with crazy people is one of those unfortunate drawbacks of being on Real Housewives of Atlanta, I s'pose.
Things begin with Kenya storming away after her massive argument with Porsha Stewart. Alas, no one could agree on who is the real tramp so they both stood up and started bickering about who is more fabulous. Answer: None of the above.
NeNe Leakes is cackling so loud that her evil plan to expose the real Kenya worked that I thought lightening would descend from the sky. Far more generously, Cynthia Bailey admits that a lot of the stuff Porsha said about Kenya's age would have made her flip out too.
NeNe is pleased as punch that there goes Kenya letting her crazy sprinkle out and finally explode all over the place. But Kenya has another surprising ally in Phaedra Parks. Phaedra admits that Kenya's ghetto behavior was out of line, but she likes Kenya and thinks she just lacks appropriate communication skills. Poor Kandi Burruss was in the hot tub and missed the whole thing. #priorities #kandikoatednights
Kenya Moore is the resident Real Housewives of Atlanta crazy and while many have suspected she is majorly ramping things up for the camera time and career boost – something about me thinks her koo-koo-kachoo behavior may just be more authentic than we think!
Kenya has already been caught in one scandal to get a storyline for the show. She convinced former boyfriend Walter Jackson to pose as her serious boyfriend whom she was talking marriage and family with. Unfortunately once the cameras stopped rolling Walter decided to call it quits on the prank prompting Kenya to start spreading rumors around Atlanta that he is gay!
Well, now Kenya is apparently being caught in another lie! Anyone remember when Kenya claimed she owned her massive Atlanta home? According to a popular Atlanta blogger Funky Dineva, Kenya is only renting it!
If you recall Faye was Adrienne Maloof's self-elected guard dog – and many believe Kyle deployed Faye to do her dirty work as well! As soon as Faye's blog hit the site, it was flooded with negative hundreds of fan comments. And if you know anything about Bravo's commenting policy they are known for weeding out the bad stuff and leaving in only the good or more gentle criticisms, well they must have gotten some really, really bad responses to Faye's blog because nearly 100% of the responses were straight-up derisive of both her behavior and her demeanor.
In the wake of the apparent controversy Faye's blog has now been removed from the site! As in vamanos, no more, disappeared, exited stage right.
There seems to be nothing Bravo loves more than a pre-season casting rumor. It sets the drama in motion before cameras even start rolling. Currently in the spotlight is Real Housewives of New York!
While last season was shaky, ratings increased each week and fans started to really relate (or hate) the new additions. And despite the success, apparently Bravo execs didn't feel the reaction was good enough and they want more than luke-warm viewing.
“It's very simple: Shows like 'Housewives' are about ratings,” a network executive reveals to The Huffington Post. RHONY is "not a high-class show like 'Mad Men' that wins awards and appeals to top-notch advertisers. That’s why such a dramatic ratings drop is so devastating.”
As I'm sure you've heard Melissa Gorga is heading into the writing game. I mean she's done so well with writing her own songs, why not branch out into like real authoring with a book? The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is currently working on a self-help/advice book about having a healthy and happy marriage.
Well our source tells us this is a complete joke, because Melissa's marriage to Poison Gorga isn't so happy at all!
"This is another fake, sick, and sad attempt to 'out do' her sister in law. Melissa and Joe have created this whole 'perfect marriage' image so they can cash in on it," our source shares. "They are so desperate to earn a dollar they will do anything. Melissa and Joe love money. They are obsessed with it. "

On last night's finale of Real Housewives of Miami things were peaceable, nice, and sweet. I kinda expected the reunion to be filmed sans moderator in Vicki Gunvalson's backyard circa S1 of RHOC, aka before these shows descended into non-stop fighting, backstabbing, and made-for-TV personal problems.
Nope, last night's episode featured real, honest-to-goodness drama, and sweetness. I guess after a season of crazy why not end on a high note?
Things begin with the girls still in Bimini. Apparently the bad weather has stranded them and trying to turn lemons into lemonade an energetic Marysol Patton suggests a "Healing Water" ceremony involving flowers and Pucci worn with aquashoes. Marysol explains that her mother believes making a wish and throwing flowers over your head into water can cleanse negative energy and help us find closure and peace.
Lea Black had been passing the time talking to all her friends in jail and so she's game. I mean who wants to hear some wealthy con complain about the frozen peas and lukewarm gravy in the minimum security prison when you could be on vacation right? Adriana de Moura laughs that while alone in their cells at night they're all fantasizing about Lea and Lea didn't seem to find that image appetizing.
