I think we all learned a good lesson on Real Housewives of Miami last night. Thomas Kramer's house is no place for Housewives of any strife, location, or wig-wearing persuasion.
The creepy, weird older guy who hosted the ladies of Atlanta on an unforgettable girls weekend two seasons ago, once again did Housewives no favors by hosting the ladies of Miami for an atrocious dinner party where the lest desirable thing at the table was Thomas himself. Look dude, if you think telling an 80-year-old woman to sit down and shut-up because she's nearing her expiration date is going to get you a reality show, you're mistaken.
Things begin at Lea Black's house withMama Elsa and a case of missing mozzarella. Apparently Mama Elsa wants Lea and Marysol Patton to make up, but Lea has a conflict of interest – or two. One of them is 8 foot tall drag queen in a 40" wide wig named Elaine Lancaster. And the other is that essentially that The Patton Group screwed up The Black Gala two years in a row and there was nary an apology in sight.
In round 500 between the maybe lovers/maybe not (despite the heavy dose of incriminating photos), the Real Housewives of Orange County star won a $500,000 defamation suit against her ex after he told the world she was cheating on dying fiance Jeff Beitzel and maybe, possibly never even really his fiance to begin with as it was an elaborate ruse to land a spot on RHOC.
Well, first Jay sued Gretchen for defamation and won. And then she sued him back and won. The jury also awarded Gretchen $23,250 in punitive damages according to TMZ. Can we just call it even with these two already? I mean Gretchen's already moved onto another loser…
Speaking with James he gave me his perspective on the situation with Marysol and how he believes their feud started. Now, bear in mind this is James' perspective.
James calls the show a "wonderful experience that has been very cathartic in a lot of ways." James says his issues with Marysol started a "couple of years ago."
He says their relationship was always casual. "We have a lot of the same acquaintances; people that I socialize with on a regular basis," he says and they often saw each other at social events.
James said he always felt Marysol had a "problem" with him, but he's not sure why. He thinks it has something to do with jealousy over him being a "bright light" and charismatic presence on the Miami social scene.

Can it get any better than this, I ask you? Does it get any crazier than mammoth egos of epic proportions? And really who has bigger egos than Teresa Giudice and MADONNA? Really… I don't know?
According to The Huffington Post, the Real Housewives of New Jersey superstar confused herself with an actual superstar when she thought the legendary and undisputed queen of egos (and cheek implants), Madonna was going to be excited about the prospect of hanging out backstage with her!
Teresa and friends were in the audience of Madonna's sold out MDNA Tour performance at Madison Square Garden. The above photo is Teresa attending the concert.
Apparently prior to the show Teresa thought she could use her reality TV fame for a little leverage with a megastar! I mean she was on like Celebrity Apprentice, right. That implies she's a celebrity, like kinda, right?
I just don't know what to say/think about Taylor Armstrong anymore. The woman known for her lips, among other outrageous things, is speaking out in her Bravo blog about attending Portia's birthday party – and on the situation with Brandi Glanville.
Let's break this down, shall we:
First of all the Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls star blames last season's reunion for the animosity – and she doesn't understand why Brandi is afraid of lil ol' her. I don't understand why Taylor is still on this show, but that's just me!
"There were many strong personalities present that day and certainly bad vibes between some of us. My relationship with Brandi became strained during the reunion last year and it has created tension that is in need of resolution. I find it unbelievable that she behaves as if she is anxious about seeing me."
You know that old saying never mix business with pleasure? Well, here's another case of it being totally true!
Jeff Lewis and his production company are suing his longtime assistant and close friend Jenni Pulos! Jeff is alleging that Jenni is in breech of confidentiality over a book the reality star is writing about her experiences working for a tough boss.
Jenni, one of a colorful and fantastic casts of characters that makes Flipping Outone of Bravo's best shows, apparently signed a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement in 2008 and in 2010 while working for Jeff and appearing on the show. According to a suit Jeff (who is also one of the producers of FO) learned that Jenni was writing a book about her experiences working for him titled, Hang In There, Baby: What One Of The World’s Most Difficult Bosses Taught Me About life, Work And Love.
Jeff says he discovered what the book was about while searching for it on the internet.
Well, this is a reason to call off a wedding if I've ever heard one! Former Dancing WIth The Stars competitor Hope Solo's finace Jerramy Stevens was arrested Monday morning after the couple reportedly had a physical altercation.
Hope, who once accused former DWTS partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of slapping her during rehearsals, was spotted inside a Seattle court room where her fiance was facing a 4th degree assault charge related to an incident at their Kirkland, WA home.
KING-TV in Seattle reported that the couple was involved in a domestic dispute around 3:45 am after arguing about where to reside following their wedding, Florida or Washington. When cops arrived Jerramy, a former NFL player, "appeared to be hiding" in a bedroom. He told them he was sleeping, but there was dried blood on his shirt.
