Bethenny Frankel is making the TV rounds promoting her marital meltdown on this season of Bethenny Ever After. This is no surprise for the woman who apparently thinks nothing is sacred – not even taking a pregnancy test.

First up, Bethenny hit up The Tonight Show to discuss how her marriage was a mess during filming, but luckily things between herself and husband Jason Hoppy have improved.         “[The] second year was way more difficult than the first,” Bethenny explained. “I was pregnant when I got married, so we were all excited about the baby and the wedding.”

“The first two years are challenging, but now we’re coming into a better rhythm. We got married older, so we are accepting each other now,” Bethenny adds.

Bethenny and Jason’s dilemmas certainly affected filming as we watched them go from happy and exuberant, to miserable and testy over the course of three seasons. Bethenny is admitting they were both at fault for the problems and have learned how to handle miscommunication. “I’m an initiator of arguments,” Bethenny confesses. “And he’s the escalator.”

“I’ll light that fire, and then there’s a big fire and I’m like ‘Oh my God, who put that fire there, what happened?'” Luckily the couple has been in therapy and they are learning how to treat each other.

And despite incessant rumors that the two are headed for a divorce, Bethenny insists that couldn’t be farther from the truth. “We’re together, we’re committed, we work on it, and we’re in love. And we’re in it.”

Unsurprisingly, Bethenny is giving credit to the infamous lost at sea-gate for their reconnection. The reality star appeared on Anderson with Anderson Cooper today where she once again insisted they were really, truly, honestly lost at sea and the Coast Guard really, truly, honestly came to their relief – or were at least called.

“We got on it at 6 at night, it was freezing, we were in Block Island, we were laying down, my husband got terrible sea sickness and all of a sudden I felt a big crash. A wave hit us and we were in 10 feet of water when we should have been in 150 or some big number of feet, and the GPS went out and the next thing you know I heard the captain saying, ‘Maria Cristina to the Coast Guard,'” she recounts of her harrowing experience of 15 minutes without a GPS. What did they do for centuries, I wonder?

Bethenny insists the episode was very real to her and regardless of the true severity of the situation, she was extremely nervous.”We were freaking out. We were with my camera crew and I was like, ‘Oh my God this is about them too.’ One of the guys can’t swim, we were panic stricken,” she insists.

“So, by the way, to hear someone say that it was fake was very insulting because I was freaking out. … the whole thing was horrendous.”

The positive of the trip was that she and Jason actually communicated and learned to rely upon each other. Maybe that was all part of Dr. Amador‘s evil plan? Maybe he faked getting lost at sea?! “The good news, we did not argue — my husband and I — we actually got along very well. No one blamed anybody for dragging them on this ship of fools,” Bethenny recalls.

Bethenny’s appearance on Anderson was not limited to discussing playing Gilligan’s Island, the former Real Housewives of New York star also talked the beginning days of appearing on the show and all the changes that made her want to leave. “Well, when we first started it was way more fun. When we first started it was called, ‘Manhattan Moms.’ It was a totally different show, I didn’t know it was ‘Real Housewives’ — I wasn’t even a housewife,” Bethenny remembers.

“Then as it went on, people become more knowledgeable about what the show is and they watch other seasons and other casts and there is a preconceived notion of how to act. That’s different then when I started, when I started it really was fun — it was a new adventure,” Bethenny explains, echoing what viewers have noticed in recent years seasons of the Housewives franchises.

She admits she is glad she signed on, and of course, had some serious success because of her involvement. “I do have a respect for, well respect’s not the right word, I have a nostalgia for the five of us that started together. It did create so many opportunities for all of us and I can remember back to when it was me, Jill [Zarin], The Countess, Ramona [Singer].” What about Alex McCord – did Bethenny just block her out?

Bethenny also talked her own reality television guilty pleasure – Jersey Shore! “Well, I don’t even know why I do because it gives me anxiety,” she reveals. “I’m like it’s just so filthy … You couldn’t give me $10 million to lay in that smoosh bed, much less smoosh in that smoosh bed.”

While discussing reality TV, she had a very real mishap of her own! Bethenny managed to traumatize the audience when she full-on mooned them; revealing her hot pink panties during a dance contest with Anderson. For once, I don’t think was a plug for Lazy Lingerie or Skinnygirl Shapers or whatever it is she’s pimping now – I think it was a legitimate “Oops” moment and she handled it with dignity. Hey, at least she wasn’t wearing a thong! A clip of Bethenny’s intimate exposure is below.

And speaking of being shipwrecked, a new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight where we will see Bethenny and Jason get lost amongst the waves during a therapeutic sailing trip to Block Island.

Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

DO YOU BELIEVE JASON AND BETHENNY WILL MAKE IT? DID SHE REALLY BELIEVE SHE WAS LOST AT SEA OR WAS IT A PLOT FOR HER SHOW? IS BETHENNY ACCURATE THAT THE HOUSEWIVES ARE ACTING ON RHONY?

Days after Alexis Bellino spoke out accusing Gretchen Rossi of disloyalty, Gretchen is fighting back against her former best friend and denying that she threw her under the bus. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars certainly do not appear to be the closest of friends any longer, as Gretchen has apparently moved on to another blonde with a plastic surgery habit!

And the issue that started the demise of their friendship was Nose Job Wars! Gretchen claims her reason for outing the nose job to Tamra Barney, was the mere coincidence that Alexis and Tamra were having plastic surgery on the same day! Only in Housewives land… “Tamra and I were talking about her going into surgery on Monday for her breast reduction (the bunko party was on Saturday night) that’s when I said ‘oh that’s funny Lex is going into surgery on Monday too.’ ”

“Then Tamra said for what? I said for her sinuses, and Tamra said you mean for a nose job, and I said, ‘Well I think she is also getting the bump taken off, but she is going in for her sinuses,'” Gretchen insists.

“This is when all hell broke loose,” Gretchen describes in her Bravo blog. “I mean for goodness sake’s were we really fighting about a nose job? How ridiculous was that? To me Alexis became very insecure and defensive.” Gretchen cites “feeling emotional” as a result of her earlier fight with Vicki as the reason she didn’t jump in to defend Alexis.

That argument signified the end of their made-for-TV friendship. Too bad – it seemed like a really sincere relationship. “Unfortunately, this is the night the dynamic between Alexis and I changed. I was very hurt by her actions towards me. She started accusing me of not having her back,” Gretchen muses.

“My friendship with Tamra had nothing to do with my friendship with Alexis, and I would never allow Tamra to influence my feelings towards Alexis. Alexis’ own actions towards me are what changed my feelings.”

And Gretchen is accusing Lex of not having her back either! “What I find most ironic about Alexis being so upset with me is that she sat there completely silent while I was in a fight with Vicki. Why is it that I had to get in the middle of her fight with Tamra but she could sit silent in my fight with Vicki [Gunvalson]?”

Gretchen also, of course, tackles that drama-filled fight with Vicki. “Bottom line Vicki’s rules apply to everyone but herself. She is what you call a hypocrite. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t her own daughter call her out on this (on the way to surgery) ‘Nothing is ever about anyone else but my mom,'” Gretchen snipes.

“The underlying part of this fight was her claiming we had no clue what it is like to have a sick child,” Gretchen explains. “What is it with these women that they think just because I haven’t popped out a kid between my own two legs, I have no clue what it is like to be concerned about a child? Last time I checked Slade [Smiley]‘s son has been sick for close to seven years now, and I have now had to embrace that fight with him for the last three.”

And Gretchen is STILL defending Slade, saying he never went to jail for child support issues and has always made “some sort” of payment. Slade went to jail for missing a court date related to not paying child support.

“Slade went to court and filed a modification three years ago. Unfortunately the media likes to perpetuate lies, and obviously so do some of my cast members. Gratefully after three years of fighting with his ex in court, the court granted his modification just a few weeks ago to match his current income.” His support was allegedly reduced to around $775.00 per month.

“Slade is working very hard to catch up on any back debt that is outstanding based on the arrears being adjusted from the modification,” she insists. “Moreso he refuses to allow me to help him with it — something I greatly respect him for.”

Gretchen is also adamant that Slade has a job, although neither she nor Slade are revealing what that so-called job is! “Slade does NOT work for me and never has! He has simply helped me with my businesses as any good partner would!; ” she clarifies. His job must be very flexible to allow for all that free filming, traveling around with Gretchen, and trailing behind her, hauling some pink Gretchen Christine junk bags. Too bad ol’ Slavey can’t write his own blog to explain his nonsense, but alas, he isn’t a real castmember! Just a hanger-on.

Also speaking out about Alexis’ nose and the Bunco night from hell is our esteemed hostess with the mostess-drama, Tamra! First off, Tammy Sue, insists Jim Bellino was indeed on the guest list, but he never RSVP’d.

“To hear Alexis say Jim was NOT invited just blows me away. He chose not to attend. You see me walk over to her and whisper in her ear. I was telling her that Jim was invited and he did not respond to the invite. I would NEVER invite all the men and not Jim, My God, I even had Slade and he just ripped on me.”

Tamra explains her perspective on the fight between Vicki and Gretchen, and is still in shock that it happened. “I was really put in a bad place and was not about to choose sides. I was actually speechless for once in my life,” she reveals in her Bravo blog. “I heard the screaming and the yelling but after a while it sounded like white noise. I can understand both sides.”

“I told Vicki that ‘I was removed because I choose to be removed.’ I just can’t take the back and forth fighting anymore. I figure If I am above it, maybe it will go away? Guess what, it did!”

And about Alexis’ sinus surgery/nose job; Tamra is still calling bull sh-t on Alexis’ claims of sinus trouble! “I am sorry but she has complained about the bump on her nose for years. No one has ever heard her talk about her sinuses.” True, true!

“The bottom line is, NO ONE at that table cared if she was getting a nose job. It was just the fact that she was lying about it, like she always does,” Tamra seethes. “Alexis (or should I call her Pinocchio) really should stop lying or that nose is going to get big again.” Buuuurn! And funny.

“I have never talked to Alexis about Gretchen and when we fought in the past she never challenged me on what was said,” Tamra claims. “I’m starting to think she just says what sounds good at that moment.”

Finally, in closing, Tamra claims she was harassing Slave about his deadbeatism because she cares about Grayson, and for Alexis or anyone to imply otherwise is heartless!

“Alexis made this statement on her blog and it sent chills down my spin ‘I don’t like how Tamra and Vicki treated Slade and Gretchen in the past about Slade’s child support, and how in the past neither Tamra or Vicki seemed to care that Slade’s precious son was so ill.’ I take great offense to this statement,” Tamra asserts. “The reason I was so vocal about Slade’s issues in the past is because I felt SO BAD about his son.”

In other news, Vicki turned 50 yesterday! “Tonight I am blessed to be celebrating my 50th Birthday with family and friends! This deserves a Woo Hoo!;” she tweeted. Tamra and Eddie will be included in the “friends,” as she confirmed on Twitter they’ll be present. No word if Alexis and Jim are also on the list! Make sure to wish the OG of the OC a Happy Birthday!

A photo of Vicki with her birthday cake is below!

I think it’s fair to say that Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossis friendship is over. The two have squared off all season and this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County featured a pretty heated exchange between the two former besties about loyalty and friendship responsibilities.

In fact, the in-fighting and fragmentation of former friends has equaled a big ratings jump for Bravo’s least watched Housewives series! LALate News is reporting that Tuesday’s episode was the number five most watched cable show for 18-49 year-olds and garnered 2.1 million viewers. Pretty solid!

Proving that big animosity means big drama, Alexis shares her perspective in her Bravo Blog. And, Alexis all but declares her friendship to Gretchen over! Clearly, Alexis has not moved past Gretchen outing her nose job to enemy, Tamra Barney! “Why would Gretchen even mention my surgery to that group? What purpose did that serve? How foolish and juvenile!,” Alexis seethes.

“First off, it’s no one else’s business what procedure I’m getting done. Why does everyone seem so interested in my personal life when I’m not including them in it? Yes, I have been talking about a nose job for years, but I have NEVER HAD THE NERVE TO DO IT!”

“So when Tamra says ‘Just own it,’ HELLO! I am owning it. I’m doing the procedure on national television. . .I don’t think there is any hiding in that!;” Alexis reminds us.

And as to allegations that she was being defensive, she is owning that too! “Yes, I’m defensive because all of you are talking about me! That would make anyone defensive, and frankly, buzz off! I’m not looking for a fight.”

“The most difficult part of this entire evening is seeing Gretchen turn on me. Last year she would have stood up for me if Tamra was attacking me,” Alexis declares.

“I have been by Gretchen’s side for two years now. Gretchen says she didn’t get involved because I was handling myself just fine, and that I never got in the middle of she and Tamra. I spent numerous occasions defending Gretchen to Tamra, especially in group settings.”

“The bottom line is, if anyone I knew, friend or not, was talking about Gretchen the way Tamra was talking about me that night, I would have defended Gretchen. I knew at that moment I was on my own island. It really hurts my heart to know that I don’t have Gretchen to back me. Only time will tell if our friendship can sustain.”

Jim Bellino is also getting in on the action to defend his wife. The retired Househusband took to his personal blog to explain how loyalty works and describe how certain people haven’t figured it out yet!

“The major difference between real life and reality TV is that in real life, what someone thinks about you either never gets back to you, or it takes a while—it’s part of a social process that takes time and many leaky sources. On reality TV, you find out fast—and it’s brutal, and there are no holds barred,” Jim explains.

“Loyalties become extra fickle when there’s a third party helping viewers decide what to think,” Jim assets. “How people on reality TV treat one another changes every episode. How can this be?”

“How cast mates regard each other in their private interviews changes more than the weather—and what’s worse, some of the audience watching the show changes their opinion of someone based on what their favorite cast mate on the show says.” I hate to say it, but, Jim makes a lot of good points in his blog. Who’s really writing them, Jim?

“Loyalty is nine-tenths of the law—Alexis and I are not interested in bandwagon friends, and you shouldn’t be either,” Jim concludes.

Finally, Vicki Gunvalson is speaking out about the horrendous fight she had with on-and-off-camera nemesis, Gretchen. “My thought on the never-ending bunco episode is “true embarrassment.” Am I disgusted at myself and how I lost my temper with Gretchen and Slade [Smiley]? One word — absolutely!;” Vicki starts off explaining in her Bravo blog.

And, Vicki is wasting no time explaining the difference between Brooks Ayers‘ child support arrest and Slade’s! “Gretchen and Slade were both just trying to make a case for their innocence for Slade’s past child support issues.”

“Fact is, once they found out that Brooks had been arrested for back child support several years ago, they felt it was a way to make Slade look better or equal by bringing Brooks into it.” Really, there is no way to make a deadbeat dad “look better” – it’s scummy no matter which way you spin it, ladies!

“Instead of questioning Brooks directly, they decided to attack me when I was most vulnerable and going through a very rough time in my life,” Vicki shares. Which is interesting considering Gretchen was complaining that Vicki has never directly asked her about Slade’s issues.

Giving some background on why she does not get along with Slade, Vicki reveals it all goes back to the beginning of Housewives time. “The issue with Slade and myself stems back all the way to Season 1 seven years ago when he was dating Jo [de la Rosa]. He lied about dating Lauri [Waring] after Jo and him broke up, and he treated all the ladies like we were second class citizens or beneath him.”

“When Tamra and I called Slade a deadbeat dad several years ago, it was because of him bashing us on and off camera and it was our way of getting back to him where it hurt.”

“I have kept trying to see the “good” in Slade and move on, however he just keeps stirring things up. Why does he continue to stir up trouble? What other man does that to women?,” she wonders. “I really think he thrives on the drama so he gets more airtime.”

“Brooks has never, nor would he ever, verbally attack a woman. . .EVER. One word comes to mind that I think Slade should consider is — chivalry. Where I come from and how I was raised, men are to treat women with respect and class. This is something Slade doesn’t seem to be able to do. You either have it or you don’t.”

“Slade you might want to take some lessons from Brooks, Jim, Eddie [Judge], Terry [Dubrow], and the previous male RHOC-ers who have never verbally attacked a women.” Dang, pretty harsh, albeit true!

Vicki makes it clear she has not made amends with the serial Housewives schtuper. “Class, integrity, and character are something you cannot buy or wish for. . .you either have it or you don’t and for Slade to do what he did in front of 300 people was disgusting and made me very sad.”

Vicki is also speaking out defending herself for attending Bunco night and appearing on film in the midst of daughter, Briana Wolfsmith‘s, health issues. Taking to Twitter, Vicki explains she has had a surprisingly low profile during filming! “The family emergency was my first priority and I stopped filming much of the time. Briana was my 1st priority an always will be,” she insisted.

ARE ALEXIS AND GRETCHEN STILL FRIENDS? DOES JIM HAVE A POINT ABOUT REALITY TV LOYALTY? IS VICKI A HYPOCRITE OR DOES SHE MAKE SOME FAIR POINTS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BROOKS AND SLADE?


The ladies of Mob Wives recently got a classy makeover courtesy of In Touch Weekly magazine, which had them going from street to chic!!

In the photos posted below, the girls were put in Park Avenue Princess gear but they were not without some Staten Island accessories! Photos from the make-under are below! During the shoot, the ladies talked season two feuds and what has happened since filming ended. I think it’s fair to say the more things change, well, the more they stay the same!

Meanwhile, on and off-screen besties, Carla Facciolo and Drita D’avanzo are talking about The Lifestyle. Two women, who know more than anyone about what it’s like to live your life in the shadows of organized crime, are explaining what exactly the mafia means and are advising, once again, that being a gangster isn’t so great!

“As a kid going up, I had my uncle tell me they were in the mob,” Carla reveals to The Huffington Post . “I come from a lifestyle of seeing things around me; nothing too crazy –- it’s like going somewhere and people having a different respect for you.”

“But the bad side is that the ones who you love will be taken from you. Your kids are taken away from you -– your life becomes f–ked up.”

“It’s an organization of people who do all bad things,” Carla explains. “You have to get involved with guys who are all into doing something bad. You do wrong things and that’s why you end up in jail.” And neither Carla or Drita want to raise their children to idolize the mafia life, as they have agreed it stops with them.

As for their role, both ladies agree they would rather be mob wives than gangsters themselves. “Anyone can be in the mob, you don’t have to be Italian. I think every person, every type of person, nationality, etc. has that in their personality,” Drita describes. As for what celebrity they think would make an amazing mob boss; both women opined that Angelina Jolie would get their pick!

Moving onto some of the real Mob Wives drama, In Touch Weekly (via their print edition) recently spoke to the cast about their feuds!

Carla, the eternal cool cucumber, admits that she doesn’t really have beef with anyone. “I talk to everybody on the show,” although she is still “testing” newbie Ramona Rizzo. Her good friend Drita has a different take! “I have no desire to speak to Karen [Gravano] or Ramona,” Drita asserts.

And the feeling is mutual! Karen has no desire to deal with her either. “She is a liar and a fake, but I try not to focus on it,” Karen says of Drita. “As far as the drama with her goes, I’m done.” Ramona feels similarly. While she refers to Karen, Big Ang Raiola, and Renee Graziano as “family”, she has zero desire to befriend Drita. As for Carla; she is “just there.”

And, surprisingly, Renee has a new approach and she is getting along with every one of the ladies! “I’m Switzerland!;” she laughs. “I want to be good with everyone.” And so does Big Ang, who never had any feuds to begin with because, well, she’s awesome! Ang describes herself as “the peacemaker,” but admits, “it doesn’t seem like it’s working. I wish we all got along.”

Finally, Drita recently posted an old school photo of herself before the mob and before Lee! Drita in a her high school days was quite the skinny little tom boy. Although, she definitely looked scrappy!

“High School Pic..lol. Handball Champs right here/Undefeated! Ol Skool Crew…miss them:(,” Drita tweeted along with the photo. You can see Drita from back in the day below.

DO YOU BELIEVE CARLA AND DRITA HAVE LEFT THE LIFESTYLE BEHIND? THOUGHTS ON THE FEUD UPDATES? CAN YOU SEE ANGELINA JOLIE IN THE MOB?

Last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars was a prequel to the finale, which is a two-parter. There was no runway show and therefore no looks to critique. Since there’s no dresses to discuss, I can recap Mondo‘ s incessant whining and pouting instead! Which, is pretty much all that happened last night.

Things start out with Angela meeting the final three on the runway. The final three consisted of the ever-hopeful and slightly delusional Michael (who for some unbeknownst reason I have a soft spot for), the ebullient and fantastical Austin Scarlett, and the now surly, sullen, and depleted (once quirky and thoughtful) Mondo. Angela explains that for the final challenge they will need to create a five-look mini collection for an esteemed audience of Muppets and B-List celebrities. They have four days and $3000 to spend on materials. The runway show will be held at a secret location.

Lamar Odom has been under fire lately for his poor performance on the court with the Dallas Mavericks. Lamar was temporarily downgraded to the D-League and issued a public apology to his teammates for missing ten-days playing time in February for a family related absence. Reports have stated Lamar is upset that he was traded and is unhappy living in Dallas and that is effecting his on-court behavior.

A new report from In Touch Weekly (via their print edition) claims Lamar is blaming Khloeand the Kardashian television dynasty–or his basketball troubles! Also upsetting the NBA star was filming Khloe & Lamar in the midst of the trade, their fertility issues, and a big move. In fact, insiders are insisting things are really bad for the seemingly unbreakable couple.

“He resents the show for taking his focus off the game,” a source close to Lamar reveals. The source adds that Lamar feels reality television and his association with the Kardashians has ruined his reputation! And Lamar is blaming the show for his trade to Dallas and the all the scrutiny over his personal life for his basketball woes.

As a result of his frustrations, Lamar is isolating Khloe and has even stopped being intimate with her! “He really shut down and told her to leave him alone for awhile,” the friend shares. Lamar is so upset he’s even stopped undergoing fertility treatments with his wife.

“Khloe is trying to stand by him, but it’s hard,” the source shares. “He’s always so angry.” Khloe’s rep denies any of the problems are true.

Also having man drama–isn’t she always–is sister Kim Kardashian! In Touch is also reporting that Reggie Bush decided not to buy the cow when he could get the milk for free! According to sources, while Kim thought they were getting back together Reggie was just using her for sex. “Reggie never really trusted her,” a source explains.

After considering rekindling his relationship with the reality harlot, Reggie decided against it when rumors emerged that Kim was being intimate with Kanye West after seeing his show in Paris. The rumors made Reggie realize Kim is simply not the woman for him! Kim was apparently hoping to make Reggie jealous so he would realize she’s the one, but instead it made him sick! Yikes – that backfired.

“Reggie’s been telling people that Kim’s disgusting for hooking up with Kanye,” a source says. “They deserve each other.”

And speaking of Kim and Kanye, OK! (via their print edition) is reporting the two are definitely getting hot and heavy. Apparently, following his fashion show–which Kim flew to Paris to attend–things got flirty! “Backstage, they were really touchy-feely, and she was blatantly giving him bedroom eyes,” an insider reveals. “Later, they secretly met for drinks at his hotel room.”

“She tries to say they’re just friends, but no one is fooled,” the insider adds. “Whenever she talks about him, she gets this Cheshire Cat grin on her face and then quickly changes the subject.” Kim has definitely had a case of mentionitis according to the source, as in she talks about Kanye aaaallll the time!

Insiders report that Kim started getting cozy with Kanye almost immediately following her impending divorce! “As soon as her and Kris Humphries‘ marriage went south, she and Kanye were back at it. And this trip to Paris has really heated things up.”

Although, Kim still isn’t over Reggie and is still hoping things will work out between them! “Kim’s still pretty hung up on Reggie.”

As for whether or not Kim and Kanye have a future together, it’s a possibility – at least according to Khloe! “I do think they might have that feeling for each other; I just don’t think it’s worked timing-wise,” she commented.

Finally, the Kardashians are doing what they do best in the face of trouble. Sell their bodies! Khloe and Kim have taken to Twitter to post nudie pics of themselves for a little attention. The class level is always so high with this group.

First up, the Kardashians are, unfortunately, adding a lingerie line to their Kardashian Kollection for Sears. Khloe tweeted a photo of the new racy ad which features herself, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian (pre-pregnancy) modeling the wares. “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!? Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL,” Khloe tweeted. OMG, indeed.

Next, Kim who seemingly derives all of her self-esteem from ogling eyes, decided to whip out an old (heavily photoshopped) topless photo of herself for the twitterverse. I’m sure the parents of many of teen and pre-teen followers appreciated that! Feeling desperate and unable to sleep, Kim announced “Can’t sleep tonight,” and turned to Instagr.am for some comfort.

I’m pretty sure if I look up “pathetic” in the dictionary, I may find a photo of Kim next to the definition. Keep in mind Kim is 31 years-old and pulling trashy stunts like this for attention.

The photos are below! Warning… you may be traumatized after viewing, but I guess it’s nothing we haven’t seen before! I’m surprised these famewhores haven’t uploaded photos of gynecological exams yet. I shouldn’t give them any ideas…

Well, it looks as if one of the lovely ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may not be returning next season! Rumor has it, Bravo has decided to add the very wealthy and well-connected socialite Marisa Zanuck to the cast.

The NY Post is reporting that Marisa–who previously appeared on HGTV’s Selling LA–will be adding Housewife to her résumé. Marisa comes with quite the prestigious background, the mother of two is married to famed producer Dean Zanuck, who is the grandson of Darryl F. Zanuck, co-founder of 20th Century Fox!

If you’re wondering how they were able to convince a woman of that pedigree to associate with the likes of Taylor Armstrong; Marisa unsurprisingly has a connection to Kyle and Kim Richards! Marisa is a real estate agent for Hilton & Hyland, which is owned by Rick Hilton who happens to be the husband of Kathy Hilton who, as you know, happens to be the sister of Kim and Kyle!

Marisa is in the photo above with her husband Dean! A larger image is below.

Marisa hasn’t confirmed her participation yet and a Bravo rep isn’t saying it’s a definite but she sounds like a pretty impressive choice to join the cast. In fact, according to RadarOnline Bravo hasn’t made any definite decisions on whose returning for season three – even though filming is slated to begin in three weeks!

“All of the women are waiting for the season three contracts, but Bravo hasn’t given them out yet and tensions are running very high with the anticipation,” an insider revealed. “They all have been scheduled to attend the NBC Upfronts in a few weeks, but they still don’t know if they’re going to be signed again or what the details even are.”

“All of the ladies are all hoping and expecting to be asked back,” the source said following last season’s very high ratings, but Bravo won’t tell them one way or another if it’s a definite. Previous reports have claimed Camille Grammer and Lisa Vanderpump may not want to return.

“They could all get together and make demands if Bravo drags their feet, but they all want to continue being on the show so they’re eager to resolve this peacefully and get their contracts soon,” the insider adds.

Here’s hoping they’re trying to class next season up and Bravo will be pink slipping some of the, um, less refined ladies. Or maybe, they are going the Real Housewives of New York route and doing a complete cast reboot. I can think of a few of these broads I’d like to see retire!

Moving onto a woman who will most likely be officially added to next season’s cast, spurned wife Brandi Glanville is planning to write a tell-all about her marriage to the philandering Eddie Cibrian! We-eh-ell… now that’s a Housewives book I may actually buy. And just when she seemed to be getting along with Eddie’s former mistress, now wife, LeAnn Rimes !

Brandi covertly announced the news via Twitter when she teased, “Brunch with my fav book agent Michael B and fav RHOBH boss Alex B.” Brandi wants you to know this is not another case of the Bravo Home Shopping Network. No, was planning to unleash her story long before reality television entered her life. It’s just that no one was interested in her story because no one knew who she was! Now that she has a little name recognition she’s picking up where she left off.

“mine has been a long time coming its about surviving divorce,no 1 wanted it until I got the show tho.Can’t speak 4 others,” she explained when fans questioned if she was just doing this because of Housewives.

No word on when Brandi’s book will actually be published or who’s actually writing it but let’s hope it fares better than Taylor’s attempt at non-fiction! If you want a good read, check out her reviews on Amazon. Scathing, to say the least!

IS A MARISA A GOOD CHOICE TO JOIN RHOBH? WHO DO YOU THINK IS LEAVING THE SHOW? WOULD YOU BE READING BRANDI’S BOOK?

Author Angela Stanton is trying to make a living and a name for herself by using former friend Phaedra Parks as her ride to the top.

Angela is speaking out about who she claims the “real” Phaedra is and recently wrote a book called Lies of a Real House Wife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil, which exposes the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s alleged criminal past. Miss Stanton makes very detailed and serious allegations against Phaedra which makes it difficult to know what to think about the information.

Vibe Magazine broke the story that Phaedra’s actions caused husband, Apollo Nida to serve jail time as she was a criminal mastermind behind a scheme of insurance check fraud, auto theft and racketeering! According to Angela, Phaedra was even supposed to represent the entire gang if they were arrested.

Apollo served five years in prison for Racketeering related to auto title fraud. His mugshot is below. Apollo was indicted with five other men on a 20 count indictment under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Basically they were arrested under the umbrella of organized crime.

Apollo was the “numbers” man behind the operation and not considered a violent criminal. Angela is proposing that Phaedra was the true mastermind behind the whole thing. Say what?!

Angela, who has a troubled past and grew up in an abusive home, says she met Phaedra in 1999 through her relationship with a musician named Drama and the two formed a close friendship. She claims after about a year Phaedra introduced her to Apollo and involved her in their insurance fraud scheme. “It was strictly a business relationship that the two of them had. And at that time, they were making fraudulent insurance checks.”

Angela’s role was the front woman who would run the forged checks to the bank. “And of course I was the one that would go into the bank with the identifications, deposit the check, and then go back to the bank and withdraw the money, whether it was $27,000, $30,00o.”

“This went on for about two years, and then I ended up catching a charge and getting locked up for forgery, and I ended up going to prison. On my first trip to prison, I only did four months, but while I was away at prison, Apollo had also got arrested. So when he got arrested and got banged up and moved to County, and I finally got out after doing my four months, Phaedra and I got back together again.”

Apollo went to jail in 2004 and served four years of an eighteen year sentence, upon his release in 2009 he almost immediately married Phaedra.

Phaedra then introduced Angela to Apollo’s brother, Everrett also involved in the operation. “This time she introduced me to Everett, which is Apollo’s brother, and we were all involved in the federal racketeering scheme against the federal government – stealing Porches, Hummers, Cadillacs, Corvettes, any hot whip at that time – you name it, we had it. We would basically go to the car lot and write down the VIN numbers of the vehicles that we felt as if we wanted to keep or would make a good sale.”

“Once we recorded the numbers down off of the VIN, we would take them back to Phaedra and Everrett, and once they had it they would make a fake identification card and a registration card to match the vehicle.” When Apollo was arrested it was discovered he had fraudulent licenses in other states with his photo but a different name.

“The next day you could take the ID and the registration card and go to another car dealership and tell them that this is your vehicle and they’ll cut you a key for a fee of $185.Well, once we had the key, we would then go back to the car dealerships after the dealership closed and drive off with whatever car we picked earlier.”

They would then clean the car out, swap titles, and trade it in at a dealership for a car of lesser value, pocketing the difference in monetary value.

Angela alleges an altercation at the Georgia DMV led to things falling apart. “My cousin was going to the DMV to trade in one of the titles [and] she got banged up at the DMV,” Angela explains. “So an auto theft detective by the name of Pete McFarlane [sp?] questioned her, but eventually released her.” Angela asserts that despite her warnings, Phaedra encouraged her to continue running the scheme as if nothing was different.

“Phaedra told me that we should proceed with what we had. Everett said that we would leave in the morning as well. So we left that next morning headed to Tennessee with three of the luxury vehicles, and this is where I was arrested. This is where Everett was arrested.” Angela was seven months pregnant at the time.

Angela says Phaedra reassured her that she would represent her as an attorney in exchange for her silence. Angela claims she never said a word and ended up getting five years in state prison for her involvement.

“Once I was incarcerated, the plan and the agreement was always that she would always represent all of us if we ever got into any trouble, and that’s what I expected. I expected her to represent me. I expected her to look out for me. I expected her to look out for my children if something were to happen. I expected her to do everything that she said she was going to do because I did everything that I said I was going to do.”

Angela did a video interview with Vibe that is part of a two-part series. The second part of her interview will be released by the magazine today. Reality Tea will be giving you the update. You can view the video below!

Phaedra has not commented on the accusations, nor released a statement proclaiming her innocence. I expect an official statement shortly.

It’s important to note that Phaedra was never accused of any involvement and was not investigated, according to records. I find it difficult to believe with all of her proposed involvement she would have scraped by unscathed if she were as deeply entrenched in the situation as Angela proposes. Now that’s not to say she didn’t have knowledge of the scheme and Angela’s story is very specific.

If this is remotely true, it leads me to wonder why Phaedra, a high-profile entertainment lawyer with many celebrity clients, would open herself up to scrutiny by participating in reality television if she has such a scandalous past to hide. Phaedra has never withheld information concerning Apollo’s arrest and she has been very forthcoming from the get-go about his criminal background. Meaning, it doesn’t seem like she’s too afraid of people digging into her background.

I have one question – is there anyone involved with RHOA who doesn’t have a criminal past?! Good lawd!
