On Thursday’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York, “Misfortune Teller,” the ladies invade begin their vacation in Morocco, with separate flights for the brunettes and blondes, of course. Hang on to your hangers magic carpets. Yeh bebe, it’s time for Morocco, Manhattan style!
So, yeh bebe dahlings, LuAnn, Jill, Kelly and Cindy arrive, and LuAnn has given up her Countess title for that of Moroccan Ambassador of Travel and Hospitality. I’ll give it to her though, the accommodations, excuse me, riad (man, my Arabic is on fire!), she has secured are beyond amazing. Flying in the following day are Alex, Ramona and Sonja, with Ramona repeatedly reminding anyone who will listen that she will require all of the comforts of home, a.k.a., “pinot grigio at all times.”
On their van ride to the ladies’ compound, Ramona and Sonja quickly become those Americans that give the rest of us a bad name. Between the talk of too much dust and too many goats, poor Alex nervously laughs and quietly cringes between the brash duo. When the ladies get to the riad, Sonja is concerned about her luggage being stolen, and–please correct me if I’m wrong–Ramona takes one look at LuAnn and Jill in their kaftans and calls them “wounded warriors.” And thus the train wreck that is Ramona begins in slow motion…

And immediately following the airing of the show, Ramona’s costar Countess LuAnn de Lesseps kept it classy by making the following tweet – “The fortune teller was spot on with all of us. It was scary.” See what the Countess did there? A not so subtle dig at Ramona by insinuating the fortune teller’s tale was accurate.
Ramona was however one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live last night, during which she denied her husband Mario Singeris cheating on her. “Well I never take fortune tellers to heart. I know what I have,” she said of Mario.
When informed of the tweet from the Countess, Ramona appeared visibly upset. “Hello, she’s the one who’s cheated left and right on her husband. She’s cheated on him, he’s cheated on her,” said Ramona. “What is she talking about? I never cheated on my husband. He never cheated on me.”
Andy Cohen also asked her the drinking question as many fans of the show this season have wondered if she has a drinking problem, you know, since she’s always shown with a half full glass of wine or flipping out whenever her own Pinot Grigio line is unavailable. Well Ramona also denied having any issues with the alcohol.
“You know what, I don’t have a drinking problem. I definitely have a glass or two at dinner. I drink responsibly. I don’t drink and drive. I wouldn’t have 4 businesses. I wouldn’t have a marriage,” said Ramona. “It’s just unfortunately some of these women are threatened by me or let’s say they just want to attack me for certain reasons.” She later added that she is simply a “social drinker” and that wine is only about 8% alcohol.
I suspect this is a case of Ramona trying too hard to plug her Pinot line on the show gone wrong, but perhaps it could be the editing. Or then again, maybe she just drinks too much. But don’t they all?
Some of our readers are also speculating if the “fortune teller” might have been planted, you know, to stir up drama. This actually never crossed my mind but it could be a possibility. For one, Brad, the guy who planned the party and set up the reading with the fortune teller, made it known he wasn’t a fan of Ramona’s.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE FORTUNE TELLER? DO YOU THINK MARIO IS CHEATING? DO YOU THINK RAMONA HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM? OR IS SHE A VICTIM OF BAD EDITING?
Other Bravo stars in the commercial include Kathy Griffin, Kara DioGuardi, Padma Lakshmi, and Patti Stanger. If you recall, this was the same shoot in which some of the Bravo housewives reportedly felt snubbed by Top Chef host Padma, who they say ignored them during the shoot.
That answer is a very strong maybe! The Bethenny Ever Afterstar was photographed above this week on Tuesday as she went for a stroll with daughter Bryn and husband Jason Hoppy in NYC.
It is however the appearance of what looks to be a baby bump that is catching the eyes of some, including us. The very skinny Bethenny, 40, appears to have some extra curves around the tummy area.
If she is pregnant, this would not come as a surprise as she has been very vocal about her desire to have a second baby. Earlier this year, she revealed that if she were to have a second child, it would be sooner than later due to her age. “I would love to have a second child, and it’s not something I have time to wait for,” she told Redbook magazine in their January issue. “You really experience your biological clock if you’re my age.”
“We throw caution to the wind and use the withdrawal method now,” added Bethenny. “If we got pregnant again, we’d be happy.”
So is she or isn’t she? Only time will tell. In the mean time, we’ll let you be the judge with more photos below of Bethenny with Bryn and Jason!

Good news fans of Mob Wives! The VH1 network has officially picked up the show for a second season.
This news comes as no surprise as the show has been doing very well in ratings, averaging over 1.3 million viewers per episode. All four women will be back for season two.
In addition to the season 2 news, the network also announced a “Mob Wives” reunion special is set to air July 10. Something tells us there will be plenty of security on the set!
And if you thought the last ‘dinner from hell’ episode of the show was dramatic, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
According to a new report by the NY Post, there is still at least one more fight coming our way this season. Castmates and former friends Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzoreportedly got into a nasty physical fight during the season finale taping at the Rare View bar atop the Shelburne Hotel in New York. In fact things got so crazy, that it left one castmate bloody.
Once Karen and Drita got physical, security is said to have stepped in and separated the two, who were taken in different elevators. However, the fight spilled into the lobby, and security ended up throwing them out of the hotel according to sources.
Another cast memberRenee Graziano ended up bleeding in the scuffle after she cut her leg on a bench.
In the mean time, it seems VH1 has yet to decide on whether or not they will air the fight. A VH1 rep stated, “At this time, we are concerned about the well-being of our cast. The network has yet to determine whether we will air this footage.” VH1 has standards?

In the season finale of American Idol the country showdown between finalistsLauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery finally came to an end as a new idol, Scotty was confetti’d! Last night was a show-stopping affair filled with amazing duets, the return of the eliminated idols, a whole slew of celebrity performances, and tons celebs in the audience (did I see Maria Shriver?). A record-breaking 122 MILLION votes were cast nationwide to determine the Season 10 winner.
The all-star line up of celebrity performances (including two from our esteemed judges – more on Jennifer Lopez’s later) featured: Beyonce, Tony Bennett,Lil Jon- fresh off ANOTHER reality show, the resurrected TLC, Tom Jones, Bono and The Edge, and judge Steven Tyler. Kicking off the celebrity duets wasJames Durbin, A.I.’s metal king in a crazy performance with Judas Priest. James definitely has the perfect voice for metal, but whatever he was wearing looked more at home in The Village People!Jacob Lusk, who Ryan Seacrest accurately described “took us to church” this season performed “I Smile” with Kurt Franklin and Gladys Knight. I have to say when he is in his genre Jacob’s voice is amazing! Casey Abramsreturned with his celebrity soulmate Jack Black!! They were so hilarious. Their rendition of Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” was my favorite performance of the night.
Lauren and Scotty performed duets with two of country music’s biggest stars. It was Country Superstar meets Country Beiber in a show-stopping duet with Tim McGraw and Scotty singing “Live Like You Were Dying.” Lauren took the stage with her idol and former Idol winner Carrie Underwood for a performance of “Before He Cheats.” We also met Lauren’s and Scotty’s high school music teachers – who were so cute and so excited to be there – they were both gifted a new Ford Focus!
Marc Anthony, husband of J.Lo, also gave a performance, which surprise! featured his wife. And I have to say I was blown away by J.Lo – and not in a good way. Her portion of the performance consisted of booty jiggling, gyrating, butt thrusting, weave tossing dirty dancing while wearing a fringed leotard. J. Lo – too much. Too, too much. Also, in a booty gyrating, inappropriate for prime-time performance was Lady Gaga wearing an outfit that was 90’s Madonna meets Bret Michaels, who simulated s.e.x. and suicide in the most annoyingly repetitive song I’ve ever heard. I was on the edge too, Gaga – on the edge of extremely annoyed! Oh, for DVR at that moment so I could fast forward.
Finally, the winner was announced and the newest American Idol is: SCOTTY MCCREERY! The country cutie from North Carolina took the prize! Scotty performed his new single “I Love You This Big” (which my friend’s sister dubbed the Barney – as in purple dinosaur – song). Scotty was so choked up after the big win that he could hardly get through the song. During the touching performance he hugged his entire family – but forgot to hug Jack Black who was sitting next to his family. Congratulations Scotty –you were superb from day one – you have a fan in me. Also, congratulations to Lauren for a fantastic season with many outstanding performances. And following last night’s finale, many are now wondering today if Scotty and Lauren are dating? No clear answer on that yet but what do you think?
Well that concludes Season 10 of American Idol. Casting for Season 11 begins soon so if you think you have what it takes to be the next American Idol, try out and let me know if you make it through so I can interview you!

The same night Ronnieand Sammiwere photographed holdings hands in the streets of Florence, Italy, before getting into a reported fight inside of a club later that night, Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fight, except it was a violent fist fight!
The above photos were taken yesterday (the day after the fight) as both Ronnie and The Situation returned back home. The Sitch returned home after a visit to the hospital, while Ronnie can be seen applying bandages to his fist.
In the pic above, The Sitch can be seen sporting cuts and in another photo by a different photo agency, he can be seen sporting a shiner courtesy of Ronnie. As for Ronnie’s injuries, his fist suffered some cuts and bruises.
According to TMZ, the fight took place Monday night, presumably inside the home the roomates share. While full details about the fight have yet to come out, what is certain is that sources tell TMZ it all began with a blowout between Ronnie and Sammi… of course.
And it seems the roomates are all Team Ronnie as Ronnie has since been photographed with most of them out and about since the incident while The Situation has yet to be seen in public since the above picture was taken.
A close up of Ronnie’s fist is below. You know what they say, you can take the kids out of the Jersey Shore but…

TELL US: THE SITUATION’S ASS KICKING – HE HAD IT COMING? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR HIM?
UPDATE – TMZ is reporting that Ronnie and The Situation have buried the hatchet and are back to being friends again. The two reportedly had a long talk following their fight.
As for what caused the fight, sources say after a heated argument with Sammi on Monday night, Ronnie returned home and “turned his anger towards Mike.” He started talking smack about The Sitch’s family causing Mike to snap and hence the fight. The two fought briefly before it was “quickly broken up.” Ronnie then decided to blow off some steam by punching a wall, which tore up his knuckles.
