Brandi Glanville continues her rampage of no accountability, no manners, and no classy behavior but she added in a dash of insightful political commentary! Appearing as a guest on The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro, Brandi dove into all the scintillating dramas of her life from Housewives, to lawsuits, to her new book, another former fling, and her opinions on Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign.
The divorce drama between Jules Wainstein and her future-ex-husbandMichael Wainstein continues to get crazier! Jules blames their divorce on Michael cheating. Yesterday she called the police alleging that he threatened her after a messy tax situation was unveiled. Michael is finally speaking out, and obviously denies that he had an affair. Also he blames Real Housewives Of New York for turning Jules into a narcissistic attention-seeking drama queen. No…
“The marriage is over! But, not due to any fault [of Michael] who was not ‘busted’ for cheating as incorrectly alleged,” comes a statement from Michael’s rep Mark Jay Heller.
Oh Real Housewives Of New York – you never cease to amaze me. Last night’s episode shone a rather frantic light on the very temporary nature of life as a Housewife.
First up Sonja Morgan has an intern she believes is her twin. This intern has Sonja’s nose, butLuann de Lesseps‘ voice and it’s all together confusing. That poor girl – Alex – upon realizing her predicament was shocked. In Sonja’s kitchen Luann lectures her about making amends with Bethenny Frankel, but Sonja is not inclined. She’s not going to grovel at the feet of the self-proclaimed Queen B, who is schtupping other women’s husbands and channeling the burden of her hypocrisy by having hysterical projecting meltdowns on Luann. Or at least I think that’s what happened between Bethenny and Luann during the Berkshires Bonanza. Which sounds like a recipe. Maybe Adam and Carole Radziwill can put it in their cookbook?! I give it a “Radish Rating” of 9.
As a result of Kingsley’s out of control behavior, and Kim’s mismanagement of her aggressive dog, Kim was sued twice – once by a former trainer, and a second time by Kay, who alleged Kingsley attacked her while they were filming Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills at Kim’s house. Kingsley also bit Kyle Richards‘ daughter Alexia!
After much speculation that Bravo was desperate to repair Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills after last seasons’ toxicity and Yolanda was fired, today she confirmed her departure. Yolanda implied she made the decision not to return, however a production source claims Yolanda actually quit because Bravo only offered her a ‘Friend’ contract instead of being a full-time cast member.
Season 8 was Heather’s second season on the show and one comment production made was that Heather was basically forced into it by her husband Terry Dubrow, and was eager and anxious to get Alexis replaced with one of her friends. On her podcast Heather Dubrow’s World, she insists none of that is true.
“Some of the producers have some revisionist history going on!” scoffs Heather. Heather insists she never conspired to have Alexis replaced by a friend or chased them down with a casting suggestion after Alexis fled the CUT Fitness party. “That never happened,” Heather swears. “I had no one!”
So here’s a run-down of the behind-the-scenes reveals:
1. The producers lie to everyone. Case in point: Alexis Bellino. Alexis insists she quit;Heather Dubrow and Tamra Judge insist she was fired. At the CUT Fitness party, the opening party for season 8, after Alexis flees following the onslaught from the ladies, she is overheard telling the producers, “This is why I didn’t want to come back!” The producers admitted they worked behind the scenes to convince Alexis to return – including that Vicki Gunvalson would befriend her, and by hiring Lydia McLaughlin.
