In other OC news, Simon Barney is defending himself against the accusations of estranged wife Tamra Barney on the last episode. If you recall, Tamra accused Simon of flipping out and harassing her via text messaging over her trip to Spain. Tamra stated he was upset she didn’t tell him about her 10-day vacay with beau Eddie Judge.
Well, Simon denies harassing Tamra and posted the entire text message exchange between the two following that trip on his facebook page. Simon posted the messages along with the following statement -
“I have always tried to be above all the Drama and lies this and last season. This is the one rare time that I have commented about her or the show. That being said… My soon to be ex tells Vicki I was harassing her by text while she was in Spain. So I decided to look back at the texts I sent her when I found out she was in Spain, and my kids were being watch by 4 different people, including a minor. Maybe it’s me, but after reading it and I don’t see the harassment.Do you?”
Well, we’ll let you be the judge. The screen shots of the text messages are below.

It was a very busy day for Bravo yesterday as the network not only announced new and returning shows, but also hosted a total of 3 different upfront parties in 3 different cities!
And of course the housewives came out to party alongside plenty of other Bravolebrities. Above is a photo of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast at the Los Angeles party. Also at the LA party was the entire cast of the Real Housewives of BH including Kim Richards.
Joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast at the Chicago party was none other than Bethenny Frankel, who tweeted that there was a clear division amongst the cast members but more on that below.
At the New York party were the Real Housewives of NJ and the Real Housewives of NYC. Casts of other Bravo shows such as Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, Million Matchmaker & more were also in attendance. It is a photo overload below!
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Bravo officially announced the RHOA and the RHOBH will be returning for another season. Not exactly surprising as the first had the highest ratings in housewives history while the later has already began filming. The big surprise however was the early renewal of Bethenny Ever After as while the ratings are still good, it has declined over 20% from its debut season.
Not announced yesterday? The Real Housewives of DC which is reported to have been canceled. The only two housewives franchises missing from the Bravo parties? The RHODC and the RHMIA.

Following weeks of criticism and fans asking what the heck is he thinking? The Bachelor’sBrad Womack finally eliminated contestant Michelle Money, aka the show’s resident crazy pants.
Brad however defends Michelle in his new blog for PEOPLE magazine today, stating her “craziness” was “light-hearted.” Excerpts from Brad’s blog below -
“Yes, it was time to say goodbye to Michelle. Some of you may be sighing in relief; some may think she was around too long; some may think saying goodbye was a mistake. I’m going to defend Michelle once more … For everyone out there that is criticizing her, please try to see the humor in her antics. Here’s a woman that, yes, may be opinionated, but also doesn’t take herself too seriously and makes light of many situations. My decision to say goodbye to Michelle had absolutely nothing to do with her light-hearted craziness. It was simply a matter of not having feelings that warranted trying to begin a future with her. Michelle will be sorely missed.”
There are rumors that Michelle, who is an aspiring actress in real life, was just playing up her character for the show, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
Meanwhile, the latest issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition came out today, featuring some sexy images of three of the contestants on the show. Michelle,Chantal O’Brien, and Ashley Hebert all posed with Brad on last night’s show for the magazine. Oddly enough, Michelle was the only one who kept her top on while Chantal and Ashley went topless for some shots.
