Following last week’s dramatic premiere, the latest episode of Basketball Wiveswas more on the mellow end, or more accurately the calm before the storm. This week, we discover Suzie has no back bone, Meeka is might be two-faced, Tami is NOT a fan of the hand or Meeka, Jennifer wants to get her groove back, Evelyn’s solution to every problem is to get laid (preferably to a younger bloke), and also Shaunie has no storyline this season!
The episode begins with Jennifer and Tami catching up at Jen’s place, as Jennifer takes a break from being Evelyn’s shadow. Though I’m a tad surprised to see her breaking bread with Evelyn’s enemy. Tami brings up the t-shirt and lawsuit drama, while Jen tries to stay neutral on the issue.
Circle outcasts Royce and Suzie meet up to gossip grab a bite. The topic of convo is Jen’s ex Eric and Royce reveals she still keeps in touch with him via the twitter and it shouldn’t be a problem for Jen. The topic then turns to Evelyn and Royce wastes no time in trashing her. “I can change my hair. I can change my clothes. But she can’t change the fact that she’s a ho.” Ouch! When it comes to Jennifer, Royce and Suzie agree that she is “cool” when she’s not stuck up Evelyn’s butt. Err the jury is still out on that one.

It’s a confrontations galore as the housewives hash things out with one another. At one point, Tamra Barney walks off the stage after getting into it with Slade Smileywho accuses her of being er let’s say ‘loose.’ “You are the lowest form of sh*t in the world,” says Tamra before storming off. Yes Slade was present at the reunion as he was the only guy invited to join the ladies on stage.
Vicki Gunvalson’s estranged husbandDonn Gunvalson also appears on the reunion via a taped clip. In the video, Donn is none too happy with Vicki. “I don’t think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity,” says Donn.
The biggest showdown seems to be between Tamra and Gretchen Rossi. Tamra slams Gretchen, accusing her once again of cheating on her dying fiance Jeff Beitzel. “You were sleeping with another guy while your fiancé was dying,” she says to Gretchen.
Gretchen retorts, “No I wasn’t Tamra. Stop talking out your *ss about everybody’s lives.”
Also, Alexis and Peggy get into it over Jim (Peggy used to date Jim), Vicki gets into it with Alexis, while Jeana Keough makes an appearance.
The reunion will air in two parts with part 1 airing on June 12. The preview clip is below
Reality Tea can now report that sisters Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo don’t appear to be on good terms. Whispers of a drift first began to arise as the two sisters have yet to be photographed together in months. In fact, the last picture we could find of them together dates back to last September.
The whispers grew louder as Caroline and the NJ Housewives hosted a premiere party at the Brownstone weeks ago, with Teresa hosting a separate party for herself. Dina chose to attend Teresa’s party. Dina also hosted an event for her Lady Bug charity on May 23 at The Brownstone (Dina’s husband Tommy Manzo is a co-owner with Caroline’s husband Albert Manzo), and while Teresa attended Dina’s event and was photographed with her, Caroline who was at the event with daughter Lauren, did not appear in any press photos (wireimages/gettyimages) with Dina.
And in Teresa’s Bravo blog this week, she alludes to Caroline having a feud with a sibling though she doesn’t mention Dina by name. Excerpts below -
“There are many parts of our lives that you don’t see. This episode you didn’t see my girls at all! You don’t see a lot of other people that are in all of our lives. You dont see Caroline’s other brothers and sisters and their family dynamic, for better or worse… Everyone keeps asking about my friendship with Caroline and Jacqueline. There is no feud. We all love each other. But as Caroline pointed out this week, we aren’t each other’s only friends. Jacqueline and I are very close, Dina and I are too. Caroline, while I’ve known her for years, is their big sister. I love her and I respect her, but she was never part of our group outside of family functions… I’m not the type of person to tell you how to live your life, because who am I to judge? I’m not perfect, and if I gave you advice on how to fix your problem when I have the same problem I can’t fix, it just doesn’t seem right.“
We did a little more digging and came across a recent post by the Reality Crack House blog this week in which a NJ Housewives insider reveals that the two sisters are indeed no longer on good terms. “They don’t speak, they haven’t for a while,” said the insider.
The final nail in the coffin? As of our last check yesterday (Wednesday) night, the two sisters are no longer following each other on twitter. Dina no longer follows Caroline, and a look at Caroline’s list of the 241 people she follows does not include her baby sister Dina. The two were in fact following each other at one point.
Teresa does seem to make a valid point (no hell has yet to freeze over) as it does appear a bit hypocritical for Caroline to be overly assertive in advising Teresa on her family feud with brother Joe Gorga, when she seems to have the same exact issue with her own younger sister. No word yet on what caused the rift between the two sisters.

UPDATE – Caroline tweeted the photo below of her and Dina from the Lady Bug event with the caption,”I hate viscous people. Sorry to disappoint.” No word yet on why she no longer follows Dina on twitter despite following Teresa, Jacqueline and even newbie Melissa.
Once again, the ending for the Bachelor/Bachelorette series has been revealed early on in the season.
Bachelor insider Reality Steve has done it again, revealing Ashley Hebert’s final four and most importantly her final pick! And it seems Ashley found love as she is engaged to one of the men from the show.
Though he had Brad Womack’s final two picks mixed up last season, Reality Steve assures us his spoilers are 100% accurate this season. We will find out on August 1 when ABC airs the finale.

Above is a photo of the two dancers kissing at the Moon nightclub at the Palms on Saturday. At first the photos (which have since been removed from the club’s website) flew under the radar as the kissing was actually taking place in the background of a pic.
However twitter user @DWTS_Gossipnoticed the action going on in the background of some of the pics. In other pics posted below, hotness Maksim can be seen holding Cheryl close while grabbing her hair.
Fast forward to today and Maksim and his reps are in damage control mode, denying he and Cheryl were kissing. According to the rep, Maksim “was merely whispering in a fan’s ear in a loud nightclub.” Albeit a fan who happened to be wearing the same exact dress as Cheryl with the same exact hair style.
But there is good reason for the damage control. Why you ask? Well Maksim is currently starring on the Ukraine version of The Bachelor (oddly enough the finale episode airs tonight in the country) and is under a strict contract which forbids him from, you know, making out in public with women who are not his finalists on the show.
This would be equivalent to Brad Womack getting photographed making out with a random woman the same week his final pick episode was scheduled to air on ABC. Fans of the show are said to be upset.
As for Maksim and Cheryl, the two have been romantically linked in the past as they reportedly briefly dated a few years back. The two deny there is any romance going on today so perhaps it was just an alcohol fueled make-out session. In the past, Maksim was previously engaged to DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff while Cheryl admitted earlier this year that she did have a fling with her former dance partner Chad Ochocinco.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about the careful, delicate process of making amends which is almost as painstaking and precarious as writing the perfect cookbook. Melissa changes strategies regarding the infamous feud,Kathy gets the Caroline-treatment, Teresadecides she is going to learn how to write, Jacqueline deals with bratty friends and bratty daughters, and Caroline is forced to mediate some Gorga-drama.
Things start off with a flabbergasted Kathy telling husband Rich about the events at the Posche Trashion Show. Kathy, worried that she may be blackballed from The Brownstone after angering The Caroline, needs to make amends and explain she wasn’t trying to pull a Gorga and cause a big scene in public. After all, she couldn’t help it because she was talking to Teresa and it’s in Teresa’s genes to flip out in public and cause a HUGE scene. Kathy is also surprised that her attempt to have an adult conversation with Teresa didn’t go well. Wait – hasn’t Kathy known Teresa her entire life? How is this shocking to her?

Tonight at 10 pm ET/PT, Bravo premieres its newest show Million Dollar Decorators which gives us a glimpse into the lives and worlds of the wealthy and fabulous.
Million Dollar Decorators follows Nathan Turner, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, and Kathryn Ireland, five of Los Angeles’ highly sought after interior decorators to the rich and famous. The show’s first installment includes an apartment redo for Sharon Osbourne where the deadline for completion is pushed way ahead of schedule to accommodate the hectic filming of Sharon’s talk show.
The new season will also feature a design overhaul for Daisy Fuentes’ home, as well as Martyn transforming Jimmy Choo shoe queen Tamara Mellon’s multi-million dollar New York City penthouse. The drama will follow the decorators as they consult with difficult clients, balance personal lives, compete within their industry, and play just as hard as they work.
And in a recent interview with the Futon Critic,Martyn Lawrence Bullard (pictured far right) makes it known he is very confident in his work. When asked if there’s a competition between him and the other designers on the show, Martyn responds, “Well, I wouldn’t say we run in the same circles. I certainly haven’t seen any of them at Elton John’s dinner table. [Laughs.] When you get to a certain level, there are only so many high-end clients looking for decorators and so quite often you’ll find that you’re going up for the same jobs with other people.”
Martyn does go on to add that “we’re all friends and we’ve all known each other for a long time. Particularly Kathryn, Nathan and I have all known each other for a long time and been together on vacations and weekends away.”
I love how Martyn just name dropped Sir Elton John! Million Dollar Decorators appears to be equal parts Million Dollar Listing, Flipping Out, and (Bravo’s far too short-lived) Top Design with Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler. It seems like the perfect design show recipe to me! Watch a sneak peek below!
