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.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s resident caflama queen, Kenya Moore, managed to win the hearts of many of the show’s fans, instead of getting their ire up in her usual fashion, after seeing her go through a heart wrenching scene on Sunday’s episode. Kenya attempted to once again reconnect with the woman who gave birth to her but instead faced rejection in the cruelest way. Instead of opening the door to her daughter, Kenya’s mother, Patricia Moore, who was allegedly home, ignored her and did not let her in. The rejection resulted in a tear-jerking moment for many who watched the drama unfold. Kenya decided to share with her fans via Instagram, the pain of being a motherless child by allowing them to glimpse 42 pages of a memoir she has penned.
In the five-chapter excerpt, Kenya takes her fans along a journey that is ridden with angst and tears. Readers get to understand the inner workings of her complex family dynamic, as well as the intricate non-existent relationship with her mother. In anInstagrammessage to her fans, Kenya explains about the upcoming literary work:
The love shared by Real Housewives of Atlanta’s sisters Lauren Williams (pictured left) and Porsha Williams (pictured right) is real and not even a heated argument regarding a touchy subject could separate them. Well on last night’s RHOA, the women duked it our verbally because Porsha felt her sister was shirking her ‘ride or die’ executive assistant responsibilities due to her pregnancy. The conversation got heated with Porsha condescendingly reminding Lauren of her duties, punctuating her role as her helper, and admitting she was not concerned with what her younger sibling had cooking in her “stomach.” Even though the ladies hugged it out eventually, Lauren, felt compelled to take to Instagram to defend her sibling’s rather callous actions on the show.
“My sister Porsha is my partner, my BFF, my favorite MUA, my drinking/party buddy & my 2nd mom. Sometimes we fight and yell, kiss and hug, talk all night, laugh and cry. There is no other person that I would want to have by my side. We’ve had many amazing years of working, succeeding, failing, laughing, crying, and traveling. I’m going to miss the 4am mornings in different cities, states and countries! I’m going to miss the long press days kinda….. Lol but I’ll never be too far. I love my sister beyond words and my new plus one is so blessed to have Auntie Porsha. We’re sisters, we’re best friends, we will get over ANYTHING we go through. Enjoy the show!!! xx”

The Real Housewives of New York City’sresident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankelopened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce toJason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
First, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star gushes over her love for QVC and all things cardigan! “I am so forever grateful for this experience to design a line of comfy, cozy, California chic clothing for women of all sizes. I just love every second of the process, and to work alongside such amazing designers as Isaac Mizrahi and Dennis Basso, who along with Joan Rivers, have been my mentors in so many ways is just beyond. I am constantly learning and growing as a business woman and clothing designer. I’m honored to now be going into my 5th year with QVC and I feel so very blessed! I also love the three different pieces — the shearling jacket, the cozy cardigan and the striped cardigan I’m wearing in this week’s episode!”
Luann de Lesseps, her royal Real Housewives of New York Citycast member, has got a boyfriend and he appears to be googly-eyed over her. Luann’s latest and quite possibly, greatest conquest, Tom D’Agostino Jr. spoke to People magazine about how nuts he is about his lady love. The couple, who began dating around September of last year, definitely only seem to have eyes for each other and reportedly, he might remain on this ride until the wheels fall off!
Tom tells People, “LuAnn is the new love of my life. She is a beautiful person who is elegant, classy and filled with energy like I am. We have a lot in common.” Tom, who just happens to be a millionaire and president and CEO of Smart Source, a corporate print industry company, is also rumored to be an heir to the long-established East coast supermarket chain, D’Agostino. The businessman is also seemingly much in demand with global obligations that have raked up frequent flyer miles. Tom tells the celeb magazine, how he loves the fact that even though Luann has also spanned the globe, she can shed those cosmopolitan aires and get “down home.”
