Noting they looked at Houston, Baltimore, and Philly before finally settling on Potomac, True Entertainment co-founder Steven Weinstock says, “So Bravo came to me and said, ‘Is there another African American cast out there that isn’t derivative, that doesn’t have the same feel?’ And we were able to find this incredible group of women in Potomac, Maryland, of all places. I would liken it to the feeling of ‘Falcon Crest.’ They’re very upwardly mobile, they’re the daughters of very old-monied families. The social grace, etiquette, class, these sorts of things are important in the context of their everyday interactions. It has a very different feel than ‘Atlanta,’ and at the same time it’s dripping with great drama and really exciting and interesting characters.”
Kris has built up quite a perceived solid rep as a momager, the family-go-to person and surveyor of all things Kardashian-related.

I’m the one that will be like, ‘Kylie, do this.Kendall, you should do this.'”

R&B semi-bad boy Ray J, who also stars on the VH1 hit reality series, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” got engaged to co-star and longtime lady love, Princess Love. The pair seemingly had a kind of dress rehearsal engagement on the final episode of the show. In actuality however, Ray reportedly popped the question again and with more flair on Boxing Day last month, while down on one knee and in front of a private jet before they were scheduled to take off.
The romantic engagement was completely planned by Ray J, who wanted to orchestrate a memorable and romantic event Princess would never forget. The crooner called his girl’s closest friends, as well as her parents to meet him at a heliport the day after Christmas. When the group arrived on the scene, Ray J asked them to hide on the jet, then surprise Princess once the romantic deed was over. According to the news outlet, Princess claims, she cried like a baby when Ray J presented her with a huge riveting yellow teardrop cut diamond framed by two rows of smaller ones.
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband?

The recently ailing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Yolanda Foster has officially filed for divorce from her husband of four years,David Foster. The Dutch former model’s documents were filed at the Los Angeles Superior court yesterday and the grounds for the decoupling, ‘irreconcilable differences.’ The marriage is Yolanda’s second and David’s fourth.
News of the Fosters’ divorce came as a shock to viewers of the reality show, as the pair always appeared so loving and caring towards one another. On December 1 of last year, the Fosters made the decision to release a statement explaining why chose to part company:
Is it just me, or is Kristen Doute actually sounding more and more…sane lately? Maybe it’s the therapy. Maybe it’s the blessed lack of James Kennedy in her life. But whatever it is, Kristen seems to be making sense these days when it comes to her take on the cast of Vanderpump Rules, and where she hopes to fit within it.
In her blog this week, Kristen reacts to Jax including James on the Hawaii trip after he’d initially banned him from going. “I’ve seen a lot of growth in Jax lately and I attribute a lot of that to him dating Brittany [Cartwright]. Whether or not I could go to Hawaii, I know Jax didn’t want James on his birthday trip. Jax should have been allowed a veto if [Tom] Sandoval was, but Jax also knew throwing a fit about it wasn’t going to get him anywhere. It’s not that he gave in, he just knew it wasn’t worth being an issue and letting it bother him.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Kyle Richards took to Instagram recently to do a little boasting about her husband Mauricio Umansky’s major real estate kill, the sale of a nearly 15,000 sq. ft. Beverly Hills manse that sold for a cool $43.5 million (pictured). The property’s picture was posted on the social media site along with the words…”So proud. Love this team #recordbreaking….” Even though Kyle was ecstatic that her husband of 20 years and CEO of The Agency managed to get another notch in his selling belt, some of her fans didn’t join in on her celebratory posting.
Many of Kyle’s followers thought she was being a braggart with regards to the mild-mannered post and did not appreciate, what they perceived to be the flaunting of her wealth in their faces. Mauricio, who is also featured on RHOBH, is the No. 3 realtor in the country and No. 1 in California according to Real Trends, Inc., a leading source of analysis on the real estate industry. The Agency’s sales volume totals an estimated $604,339,372 according to Real Trends, so the power pair are not hurting for dollars.
