Last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County featured the official retiring or firing of Peggy Tanous, after a disastrous dinner party where she and Alexis Bellino fought over the ancient history of a toad-like lump named Jim. I probably shouldn’t insult toads that way! Sorry toads, don’t sue me!

Peggy told us she decided to leave because the show gave her anxiety – which I can attest to, I have anxiety simply from watching, so I can understand the anxiety associated from participating. Now she is speaking out and giving more details about what made her give her two weeks notice.

Speaking to Wetpaint, Peggy maintains it was her decision to leave the show. “I am happy with my decision to leave the show. I think this was the best decision for me and my family,” she revealed. “I didn’t want to get pigeon holed as a ‘Housewife’.”

“I’m so happy I did the show and so thankful for the opportunity and experience!;” Peggy added. “It gave me a huge platform, opened doors in a lot of areas, was a lot of fun, and a great learning experience! Not to mention it got me back to doing the work I love and missed while taking time off to have my baby girls.”

As for Alexis, the two have not spoken and no love is lost! “I have not seen or spoken to Alexis since filming Vicki’s party in September,” Peggy says. “We are different people with different priorities, but I wish her well.”

Peggy does still talk to Tamra Barney, who she considers a real-life friend. “I haven’t seen any of the current cast members since Vicki’s party, but I still talk to Tamra and consider her a good friend.” Well, you win some, you lose some.

In response to Peggy’s nothing but nice comments about her former co-stars (save for Alexis), Vicki Gunvalson is taking to her Bravo Blog to trash her so-called former friend! Classy! “The fact that Peggy stood there all righteous acting like her and Micah are so perfect and Jim and Alexis aren’t was rude. Everyone, including them have a ‘past,’” Vicki seethes. Kinda ironic coming from Vicks considering how she treated Slade Smiley only to date his deadbeat brother from another mother!

“To talk about Jim’s past when she doesn’t know the truth is just plain disrespectful. I don’t know why she has set out to try and humiliate Jim the way she has,” Vicki continued. “The accusations that Peggy said about Jim are just wrong and childish. If he doesn’t mean anything to you, then why continue to discuss it? Time to move on girl.” Vicki’s getting a little defensive as of late, isn’t she? Me thinks defending Brooks Ayers has become somewhat of a full-time job!

Moving on, Gretchen Rossi opens up about her decision to forgive Miss. Tamra. And she is giving all the credit to God! Seriously. I guess Alexis finally saved one! “First as I watched myself last season on the show I saw a woman that wasn’t me. I saw a woman that was angry, resentful, and had become negative in some ways,” Gretchen explains in her Bravo Blog.

“I have always been an upbeat positive person and I realized that I no longer wanted to allow anyone to rob me of my own joy. No matter how bad the pain, no matter how harsh the accusations, I just realized I had to let it go in order for my own spirit to repair itself.”

“Secondly, literally an Act of God helped change my way of thinking,” she writes. “I was attending church after the reunion show one weekend and the sermon was about forgiveness.” Listening to her pastor Rick Warren advise: “When we do not allow ourselves to forgive we only hurt ourselves,” opened Gretchen’s eyes. “This resonated with me deeply,” Gretchen asserts.

Following her enlightening church service, Gretchen decided to let go of her resentment and forge forward towards happiness and forgiveness by receiving daily devotional emails about forgiveness, as if from God, himself. Well, actually through a website, but same difference according to Gretch! “It was a great lesson to learn because in that process it allowed the walls to break down. It also allowed me to see what I did wrong and to ask for forgiveness as well,” Gretchen reveals.

Gretchen is adamant that the repaired relationship and subsequent friendship is authentic and worriers need not worry.”I am so grateful that Tamra and I could forgive one another and get to know one another all over again without any outside influences affecting us.”

She reassures us that throughout the season we will see them building a new friendship and learning to respect each other. “That doesn’t mean Tamra and I don’t hit some bumps along the road or question if we can really learn to trust one another again. However I value the new friendship we have found. Seriously it does sound like we are dating. . .doesn’t it? LOL.” Well, that shocks the hell outta me!

Finally, tonight is an all new episode of RHOC! The Catalina drama continues and Vicki, Brooks, Tamra and Eddie struggle to have fun, post boobpocalypse, as Tamra’s jealousy is out of control. Gretchen and Slave discover some shocking information about Brooks, and they are furious that a hypocrite is among them! A preview of the new episode is below!

Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.

Last night’s season premiere of Bethenny Ever After focused on Bethenny‘s business growing, while her marriage struggled. Heading into their second year of marriage, Bethenny and Jason seem to be going in disparate directions and have trouble understanding each other. Bethenny is still whining about how nothing in her life is working, despite her many blessings and success. Hey, at least she scored a fabulous apartment!

Ahhh… Bethenny – new season, same problems! The show begins at the launch of Skinnygirl Sangria. Bethenny looks cute, and I love that color on her. Bethenny tells us that she has made it at 40, and truly that is amazing – good for her! Jason is supportive, but admits he’s a little over the twenty-four hour Bethenny show.

If you think you won’t have to hear about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, Taylor Armstrong, now that their endless second season is finally over, you’re wrong. The media circus is only beginning for the recently crowned New York Times best-selling author of Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within (if you don’t believe me, read it and weep, folks! She’s 15 on the non-fiction list (for combined print and e-book sales) right underneath Tina Fey’s memoir. ).

Now, I know that the best-seller list includes sales from the publishing company to book stores, and doesn’t take into account returns, so this best-seller list status might be very short-lived, but we can all bet that the self-promoting Taylor is going to use “New York Times best-selling author” on her resume forever and ever, even if she never makes it back on there again.

Her Amazon reviews, usually a good way to take stock of how the public truly feels about a text, are extremely negative, so I think book sellers will start to see this book getting placed back on the shelves and in the discount book bin in just a few weeks.

One person who probably has several hundred copies of the book in his house is Taylor’s psychiatrist Dr. Charles Sophy, who we can all remember from his awkward visit to the SUR opening in last season’s penultimate episode. He remains a huge fan of Taylor, and even gave an interview to Radar Online while at her recent Los Angeles book signing, saying “I’m so unbelievably proud of Taylor for the strength to keep going, and for still doing the hard work while still mourning the loss of her late husband, and going through the process of mourning the loss of Russell, and being a single mom. The book signing was very emotional for Taylor and there was an outpouring of emotion from the people that came out to support Taylor.”

Dr. Sophy even told a heartwarming story of women who were inspired to leave their abusive husbands due to Taylor’s book:

“There were three sisters that came to the book signing last night. They were in Los Angeles, vacationing from Hawaii, and decided to come. They told Taylor that their mother had been in an abusive relationship for most of their adult lives, and after reading Taylor’s book, their mother decided to leave him.”

Well, if Taylor’s book really is inspiring women to leave their husbands, then we can give her credit for that. Taylor’s tales of abuse are still being questioned, even after she posted a medical report from her infamous eye injury to her Facebook page (only to remove it moments later). On the three-part reunion for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, none of the ladies seemed to really advocate for Taylor, except for Kyle Richards. Unsurprisingly, Kyle was the only cast mate to show up at this book signing.

Speaking of Kyle, she’s posted her final Bravo blog of the season, calling it “draining and emotional.” She also describes how she felt watching Kim admit to her alcohol problem during the final interview with Andy Cohen:

Watching Kim sit across from Andy and say “I’m an alcoholic” touched me beyond words. For Kim to put herself out there in front of millions of people and admit that was a huge step in her recovery. Since the beginning of Season 1, all of the girls in the cast have been kind and supportive towards Kim. Although, they knew of her struggles, they respected her choice to deal with it privately. That is something I will never forget.

Funny how Kyle neglected to mention that the only people who have ever brought up Kim’s troubles on-camera, were she and Taylor. Kyle during the infamous limo fight, and Taylor during the reunion when she insinuated Kim was in an “altered state of mind” during dinner in New York City. In any case, Kyle reports Kim is doing well, writing “Kim and I sat together yesterday and read through so many heartwarming e-mails from all over. Kim is doing so well. Each day she is stronger, happier, and moving forward, one day at a time. . .”.

One person who certainly has Kyle’s number is Lisa Vanderpump, who also put in her final Bravo blog of the season, thanking the fans, and referring to her disappointment at some of the comments that were made.

“I have few regrets this season, but I have been more deeply disappointed when watching the footage of some of the negativity. I would never allow, out of allegiance to my friend, somebody to repeatedly trash a friend of mine who was totally unaware of the situation until it had been aired. That is something I just can’t fathom.”

If I know anything about the housewives and their cycle of drama (and I’d like to think that I do!), that little paragraph is setting up a totally new dynamic for season three.

TELL US: HAVE YOU READ TAYLOR’S BOOK? WILL YOU BUY IT? DO YOU THINK SHE IS A ROLE MODEL FOR ABUSED WOMEN? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF DR.SOPHY’S COMMENTS? DO YOU THINK KIM IS FULLY RECOVERED? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF LISA’S COMMENTS IN HER BLOG ABOUT THE DISSAPOINTMENT?

After going under the knife last year for a full body makeover, Mob Wives star, Renee Graziano, is now showing off the labor of her plastic surgeon’s hard work!

The 41-year-old showed of her new slimmer body in a blue two piece bikini over the weekend as she visited Hollywood, Florida.

Renee, who was on vacay with her 17-year-old son AJ Pagan, was pictured lounging at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Sunday.

Renee has recently spoken out against plastic surgery after experiencing some serious life-threatening complications following hers last summer. If you recall, Renee lost six pints of blood and had to stay in the hospital for over 15 days during what she has described as, her near death experience.

Good to see Renee is good spirits following her plastic surgery nightmare and recent betrayal by her ex-husband Junior Pagan, who turned into an FBI informant and helped put her father back in jail.

More bikini photos of Renee are below!

Despite her claims that she isn’t ready to date post divorce, Kim Kardashian is one of those girls who seems to always need a man. And that latest man is poor stupid Reggie Bush!

Days after, reports spotted the two lunching together and Reggie publicly denied Kim, a new report states, if it were up to Kim, the two would be back together! “Reggie and Kim have been talking since she split with Kris,” a Kardashian source tells Us Weekly. “Reggie is the one who all other guys get compared to, and the one she runs to when there’s a breakup. He is her safety net.” So basically Kimmie Kakes is using ol’ Reggie?

“He is comforting to her. But they are trying to be private about it – not even telling close friends.”

The reason? Kim’s family is totally against the relationship! “In her mind Reggie’s her great love… but he’s not a good boyfriend,” the source explains. “Her family hates to see how upset she gets when it’s over.”

“She’s always devastated and a mess. They really don’t want her to go down this road again.” But Kim is desperate to be married has “never stopped loving him.”

Kim’s family is hoping she’ll move on with someone new. “They want Kim to get back in the game and try meeting new people.” Sadly, Kim’s family and friends know Reggie will break her heart again. “It won’t go anywhere,” explains a source. “Reggie won’t commit to her in the way she needs him to.”

“He’s not ready to give up the fabulous life he has as a single guy,” the source adds. You mean he doesn’t want to be henpecked by pimpmomager Kris Jenner and used as another pawn in the Kardashians’ desperate attempts for fame, money, and attention?

Speaking of a pawn in the Kardashian famewhoring, Kris Humphries is stopping at nothing to take down the family who used and abused him! Kris’ plan is to take his divorce proceedings to court in an effort to “clear his name” after he was made into the villain on Kourtney and Kim Take New York!

Kris simply wants to prove his innocence in the matter, but the Kardashians believe his motives are vindictive because he wants to destroy Kim! “He’s doing this to humiliate her,” a Kardashian friend reports. Well, frankly she has it coming to her!

Finally, sixteen-year-old Kendall Jenner has officially become a Kardashian famewhore. The teen model has recently announced her decision to blow off college and pursue modelling full-time instead. And of course she has the blessing of her parents – who will do anything for their 10%!

“I’m not really thinking about [it] right now,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star told Life & Style about planning for college. “If my career really blows up, that’s what I would do. I love doing it.”

“She’ll probably have a career by the time she’s out of high school,” Bruce Jenner eagerly added. “If that’s what she wants to do, that’s good. I don’t know if college is going to be that important to her.” Oh, such awesome role modeling. What a lucky girl! Maybe she can end up just like her sister, Kim!

WILL KIM AND REGGIE END UP BACK TOGETHER? IS HER FAMILY RIGHT TO WORRY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP? SHOULD KENDALL’S PARENTS ENCOURAGE HER TO GO TO COLLEGE?

 

 

 

 


Oh, the cray-cray ladies of the original Basketball Wives are finally back for a fourth season with two new additions. How we’ve missed you!

The episode begins with Evelyn Lozada meeting with her wedding planner. Evelyn admits that she had hoped for a destination wedding, but seeing as not everyone has passports, the event will need to remain local. She also reveals that she doesn’t want any bridesmaids. She cryptically references the fact that many of her friends haven’t been extremely loyal, and she only wants people she loves and trusts in attendance. Hmmm…to whom could she be referring?

Jennifer Williams is in NYC and has an unlikely meeting with Suzie Ketcham. Suzie inquires as to whether Jenn has spoken to ex-husband Eric since drink toss 2011. It appears that Suzie has relocated. Is this Basketball Wives: Miami or Basketball Wives: New York? Wait, I think it is. My bad. #duh. Jenn learns that Suzie rarely talks to former biffle, Royce Reed. Suzie is equally shocked to find out that Evelyn and Jenn are on the outs.

Things continue to go awry for Teen Mom star, Maci Bookout, as after reportedly being dumped by her beau of nearly two years Kyle King. She will now have to fight to keep custody of her son.

According to the latest issue of Star Magazine, Maci’s baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, now wants full custody of their 3-year old son Bentley.

“Ryan initially wanted joint custody,” reveals a source. “But after the incident in Anaheim when she got kicked out of the hotel, he’s trying to get full custody. Full is what he really wants.” The incident in Anaheim is apparently when Maci and Kyle had a major fight in California about their relationship, which in turn led to them being kicked out of the hotel, after which, Maci went out partying until 3:00 am.

So what led to Ryan’s change of heart? Apparently his “concern about Maci’s drinking and partying,” explains the source. “Maci goes out all the time. As it is now, Ryan already has Bentley more than she does. Maci will leave Bentley with Ryan so she can go out and party.”

The source also claims Maci’s bad behavior is now rubbing off on her young son. “Bentley will go to Ryan’s after being with his mom, and he’ll be cussing a lot,” reveals the source. “Ryan will ask where he gets it from, and Bentley says, ‘Mama and Ky.’ She’s being really inappropriate.” Yikes!

To make matters worse, the newly single Maci, 20, has reportedly moved in “with three drunk party girls,” the source says. It has “Ryan really worried.”

For the time being, Ryan has yet to officially start the custody war, as he’s waiting to petition the courts until he can establish himself as the more responsible parent.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT?IF TRUE, SHOULD MACI LOSE CUSTODY? COULD YOU EVER SEE RYAN AS BEING THE MORE RESPONSIBLE PARENT?


On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the ladies promised and swore to turn over a new leaf after their moving experience in the South African orphanage, but alas their epiphany was brief and insincere.

After seeing the heartbreaking poverty of the children of the orphanage, the ladies sit down to dinner at their five-star resort to reflect on how privileged their lives are. They have “beautiful homes, beautiful fashions, a lotta labels,” Phaedra points out. Phaedra’s speech about appreciation was tailor made for Marlo, I see. Bespoke, if you will. Too bad Marlo was focusing on something being wrong with her plate instead of contemplating the day. Everyone promises to put future petty squabbles into perspective and approach situations in a more adult manner. Kandi is the first to speak up with a a ‘yeah right!’
