Days after the blogs started speculating that Kim Zolciak fired her long-time friend and assistant, Sweetie Hughes, for allegedly stealing from her, Kim is confronting the rumors. Kim insists that is absolutely not true!
Taking to Twitter, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star professed her love for Sweetie after watching a recent episode, and fired back at the accusations that Sweetie stole from the Biermann-Zolciak family. “Love you @sweetieHughes I’m dying laughing over here!!!!!!!! We are a mess!!,” Kim wrote. “@sweetieHughes would never nor has ever stole from me u sick bloggers get a life!!,” Kim explained.
Sweetie replied: “@Kimzolciak lol luv ya 2. Yes we are! And we don’t even show da half of it.”
So what led to the alleged firing? Neither lady will say. Perhaps Kim’s daughterBrielle, who first started the rumors that Sweetie’s employment had been terminated, was simply playing a prank, or maybe she had no idea what happened. Regardless, it looks like Kim and Sweetie get along great and still consider each other friends. Perhaps Kim no longer needed Sweetie’s help; perhaps Sweetie quit. I’m predicting we’ll get more of the scoop on Kim’s spin off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding, which airs this spring.
Moving right along - Sheree Whitfield‘s romantic entanglements are being discussed in a new interview she did with VladTV. Sheree talks dating and she’s very single. “I have been on dates,” Sheree explains, “but there’s no one special.”
“I haven’t found that guy where I want to, you know, just stop what I’m doing and hang out with him all the time,” she confesses.
And Sheree reveals she hasn’t seen the infamous Dr. Tiy-E Muhammad since the day when she demanded proof of his credentials. “Who goes on TV pretending to be a doctor, when you’re not a doctor?,” she wonders. Oh, Sheree, who goes on TV pretending to be rich, when you know – they’re not! Everyone who works for Bravo, that’s who!
Sheree also talks other Housewife cities, and although she doesn’t really watch any of the shows, she shares that if she had to choose a lady to add to RHOA from another city it would be fired Housewife Jill Zarin or Gretchen Rossi! Those are suprising choices! A video of Sheree’s interview is below!
DO YOU THINK SWEETIE WAS FIRED OR JUST QUIT? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHEREE WANTS TO WORK WITH JILL ZARIN?
Sometimes it is easy to forget that the ladies of Mob Wives are called “mob wives” for a reason. However, due to the recent drama with Renee Graziano’s father and ex-husband, the women seem less like reality stars and more like the products of their crime family pasts.
Renee’s mobster father Anthony “TG” Graziano was just indicted on racketeering charges… charges that were a result of Renee’s ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan going all Benedict Arnold on Renee’s family by wearing a wire to get information from his former father-in-law.
A recent article from the online edition of the New York Post spoke about Renee’s breakdown outside the New York courthouse this week after her father was charged. She talked openly about her ex-husband (who she had hoped to reconcile with on the current season which filmed months ago). Her ex, as you know, ratted out her father by becoming an FBI informant.
As Renee’s father was taken away by U.S. Marshals, the Mob Wives star couldn’t handle the pressure of the given situation. And who can blame her? It was during this real life “Usual Suspects” moment that Renee realized perhaps Junior’s promises of a stronger relationship were nothing more than an attempt to get closer to her father to garner information for a DEA investigation, which would send her father back to the clink. Shame on you, Junior. Not that I’m pro-mobster, but I am totally against betraying your loved ones in exchange for immunity for your own misgivings.
A tearful Renee told the magazine, “They’re in ‘The Life’ with you one day, and then cooperating the next.”
Renee hasn’t seen Junior, who is reportedly in the witness protection program, but she is devastated by the potential effect on AJ, her 17-year-old son, with Junior. She reveals, “My son is taking this very hard. He loves his father.” Continuing, the mama bear is adamant that she “won’t forgive [Junior] for what he did to my son.”
Renee admits that had she known of Junior’s intentions she would have tipped off her father, regardless of the pair’s tumultuous relationship. She cites Junior’s actions as an “immense betrayal.”
“I would have told my father — 100 percent,” Renee promises the magazine.
The article points out that had Renee tipped off her father, she likely would have sealed her ex-husband’s fate. According to the New York Post, the mob is quick to extinguish government informants. As someone who has always been indifferent about Renee on the show, I do hate to hear that she could have potentially been put in such an explosive situation.
With the cameras still rolling for the VH1 hit, Renee chooses to focus on the positive things the series has done for women in her position. While she’s the star of a show which highlights the feminine side of the Mafia world, Renee wants to point out, “This is not about the men. It’s about what women go through.”
And speaking of turncoats, everyone’s favorite overly-enhanced second season addition, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, gave an interview to Good Day L.A. explaining the seemingly counterproductive concept of having a reality show about people whose family members are literally trying to remain anonymous… you know, because they’re hardened criminals and all.
Huffingtonpost reports on that appearance, saying that in this reality world of the mob, according to our love Big Ang “everybody rats” and the series is in no way on La Cosa Nostra’s radar.
Big Ang can relate to the world of informants, as she herself was arrested in a cocaine bust in 2001 because of one. She admits, “A girlfriend of mine, an informer, had a wire … She went into witness protection and then we all got arrested. I did house arrest … We had parties every day for six months.” Sounds kind of fun, right?
It certainly makes people wonder why these women would do a show when most of their family and friends are involved in a very secret–and very dangerous–crime ridden world. However, Big Ang believes that the secrecy involved with being part of a mob family rarely exists nowadays.
She explains, “How could it be secretive? Everybody’s rats … There’s no more secrets, they’re all ratting each other out. It’s over.”
Of course Big Ang is in the perfect place to call out the turn-coating ways of infamous Mafia crime families. Of her own family, linked to the mob, she admits, “Thank god they’re dead.” It’s definitely hard to hate on a show that exposes your family secrets when your family isn’t around to watch it!

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF JUNIOR TURNING ON RENEE’S DAD? IS HE JUSTIFIED TO EXPOSE A CRIMINAL OR DID HE OVER STEP THE BONDS OF FAMILY LOYALTY? THOUGHTS ON BIG ANG’S INTERVIEW?
Last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars was as close to American Gladiators as a bunch of queens are gonna get – or as Mondo put it, fashion mania. The designers must face off against each other in the ultimate fashion warfare. Okay, not really, but it was quite the knockdown, dirty, scissor-wielding, fabric-copying sparring match.
Angela meets the designers on the runway looking like a designer version of bag lady, or like she just raided a Neiman’s sample sale. Or Marlo Hampton after looting Neiman’s. Angela was holding eight weekender bags; each bag is blindly associated with a season. After everyone has chosen a bag they reach inside to discover which season is theirs – they also discover another designer shares that same season!

Whoa drama! VH1 has just released the all new season four trailer for Basketball Wives, and folks, it does not disappoint!
In the five-minute clip below, the ladies offer us screaming matches, table fights and of course bitch slaps! And unfortunately for Jennifer Williams, it appears she is out of the circle, perhaps for good.
We had heard about the falling out between former BFFs Jen and Evelyn Lozada, but in the clip below, it’s pretty clear there is no love lost between the two ladies. Not only does Evelyn repeatedly threaten Jen with violence, but Evelyn’s assistant even goes as far as to slap Jen in one the scenes. Yikes. Jen reportedly filed a police report following that incident.
Also bringing the drama are newbies Kenya Belland Kesha Nichols, as Kenya seems to be the new Meeka Claxton, getting into it with most of the cast, while Kesha attempts to go toe to toe with Tami Roman. Poor Kesha doesn’t stand a chance! The season trailer is below!
No word yet on when we can expect the “You Ain’t About This Life” t-shirts from Ms. Evelyn, but you all know it’s coming!
And speaking of Evelyn, she continues to insist the wedding no one thinks is going to happen will indeed take place. According to TMZ, Evelyn and her NFL fiance Chad Ochocinco’s continue to plan their July wedding.
So can we expect Evelyn to change her name to Mrs. Ochocinco? That answer is no according to TMZ. The reason? Chad is planning to legally change his last name back to the one he was born with before his wedding date. And just in case you forgot what that name was, it is ‘Johnson.’
The new season of Basketball Wives premieres Feb. 20 on VH1.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON 4 TRAILER? YOU EXCITED FOR THE NEW SEASON? ARE YOU STILL DOUBTING EVELYN & CHAD WILL MAKE IT DOWN THE AISLE?

It’s time for your biweekly dose of Courtney Robertson news! The Bachelor contestant, who is vying for Ben Flajnik’slove, just can’t seem to get her mean little head out of the news, with tales of her non-committal relationships to powerful men.
So, it was no real shock that there is a rumor of a Courtney sex tape with her last sucker boyfriend, photographer Cavan Clark.
Apparently, skinny dipping on a network television show was just the tip of the iceberg! In a new report by UsWeekly magazine, a source who has seen the tape says, “It’s pretty dirty.” And lucky us, there are CliffNotes in the form of pictures, “There are photos, too. But it isn’t Cavan’s style to release them,” says the source.
Like others before him, Cavan was ready to settle down with Courtney and he had even bought a ring in hopes of proposing to her, but she dumped him for reality television. Her excuse, she needed some me-time! The source says, “She told him she needed three months alone.” Coincidentally, three months is around the time it takes to film a season of The Bachelor, if one makes it to the end.
But how does a habitual user get their claws into men? Apparently, she has a routine: “She knows exactly what to say to guys. Her best line is before having sex with a man. She’ll ask him, ‘Are your ready for your date with destiny?’”
That sounds more than a little creepy and we’re hoping Ben didn’t fall for this, but it’s looking more and more like he did, although according to her sex-tape dishing source, she is “worried about her ex exposing secrets about her” so she’s probably feeling some heat right now. However, back in Ben-land, he is still falling in love with her.
In his last blog for People.com, he explains what it is that he sees in Courtney. Basically, he likes that she likes him:
“It’s not easy balancing relationships while trying to make everyone feel special. That’s why I was drawn to Courtney during the daytime portion of the group date – she made it a point to spend time with me. I always knew how she felt and she made sure to let me know that she was thinking of me.”
Oh, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - I love ya, but will you please go away already?! I need a break! In the latest, the wealthiest ladies to ever squabble on reality television just will not stop! Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but Real Housewives co-tarts certainly are not!
Viewers witnessedLisa Vanderpump‘s shock and disappointment on parts one and two of the RHOBH reunion as her castmates seemed to gang up on her over numerous petty slights. Lisa admitted it was going to take a while for her get over her co-star’s “viciously” attacking her, but what’s worse, is that real-life friend Kyle Richards sat there and said nothing in Lisa’s defense!
According to a friend of Lisa’s, the fan-favorite feels betrayed by former bestie Kyle, whom she has supported through thick and thin – even hiring Kyle’s husband to sell her lavish home!
“When Lisa sold her house for $21 million, she was kind enough to let Kyle and her husband [real estate broker Mauricio [Umansky]sell it,” the friend reveals to The Huffington Post. “It was a magnificent 17,000 square foot home that, as you can tell from the show, is absolutely amazing. She could have listed the property with anyone but, as a friend, she wanted to help Kyle out.” Mauricio earned an estimated $1M from the sale.
“Lisa would rather give the money to a pal than a stranger. So you can only imagine how she felt when, just a few days later, Kyle turned on her,” the friend adds. Apparently, Lisa is appalled that she trusted Kyle so deeply, only to learn Kyle may have participated in a plot to intentionally attack her at the reunion.
Lisa is so upset about the situation with Kyle and Adrienne Maloof, she questions whether or not she is willing to return for a third season! “I feel like I have been taken for a fool,” Lisa admits. “Defending them and supporting them in life and in business.”
Lisa is not willing to easily forgive and forget her betrayal. “It’s an ensemble cast and we should all stick together. You can’t just apologize and move on after this,” she explains. When asked if she would return for season three of the show–which she has yet to be invited back to–Lisa answered that she would “seriously consider” her options before signing on.
Earlier reports have claimed Lisa, Adrienne, and Kyle had already confirmed their spots for the next season. Perhaps Lisa is having a change of heart following the latest incidents! Me thinks Kyle and Lisa are the new Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes!
On Monday night’s reunion Brandi made no secret of the fact that she finds Taylor’s behavior suspect and distasteful. Andy Cohen even questioned Taylor about Brandi’s comments on a recent episode of WWHL. Taylor accused Brandi of desperately wanting a spot on next season’s show and making inflammatory statements for attention.
Brandi claims that’s not true at all; she just really, really doesn’t trust that Taylor! “Taylor tried to have a go at me for nooooooo reason. I have no issues with her, I just don’t trust anything she says or does.”
Brandi also talks about the argument between herself and Adrienne, and Brandi makes it clear she likes Adrienne just fine, but she wasn’t ok with her behavior! “The show kind of looks like I’m going after Adrienne for no reason because they cut a lot of parts about the ‘meeting to go after Lisa’ out,” Brandi tells RumorFix. “I really like Adrienne I just didn’t want to be a part of any kind of bullying in case it was going to happen.”
“Kyle just clearly doesn’t like me because I have an opinion that is different from hers,” Brandi adds.
Finally, next week’s third segment of the longest reunion ever will feature Kim Richards‘ sit down with Andy. Life & Style provides a sneak peak of some of the things Kim will discuss!
In the interview Kim will share why she decided to seek treatment and explain her hopes for the future. “I just didn’t like me anymore,” Kim confesses as her reason for entering rehab. “I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror.”
“I had so much guilt and shame for my behavior…then I drank to cover the guilt and shame and make it go away,” she admits. “It’s a vicious cycle.”
Kim reveals she has been in treatment before, “I’ve struggled with it, and I’ve been working on it for a while. I am a person who has done it and relapsed and done it [again].” This time Kim is hopeful she will be able to maintain her sobriety. “At least I’m trying,” Kim states. “I’m really trying.”
Kyle will also participate in the interview with Kim, and she is very supportive of her sister. “I know it was difficult for Kim to leave her family and get help,” Kyle says. “I admire her for having the courage to admit she had a problem and to seek treatment.” We wish Kim the best in her recovery!
SHOULD LISA FEEL BETRAYED BY KYLE? WILL SHE RETURN FOR SEASON THREE? IS BRANDI RIGHT TO QUESTION TAYLOR’S HONESTY? ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S INTERVIEW?
The divorce proceedings of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are quickly becoming very nasty in light of Kris’ revelation that his entire marriage to Kim was fake – at least on her end – and was created for her reality show. In the latest, Kris’ attorney has every intention of asking Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner about whether or not they fabricated scenes on Kourtney and Kim Take New York!
In light of Reality Tea’s discovery that Kim and Kris J had re-shot (or completely made up) a scene where Kim is describing the so-called troubles in her marriage mere weeks after she tied the knot in a lavish multi-million dollar endorsement deal ceremony, Kris H wants more information about the particulars. In the scene, Kim is seen riding in a car with her mom while she was “working” in Dubai, Kim tells Kris that she questions if her marriage was a good idea and expresses feeling unhappy with her husband.
Viewers immediately noticed something suspect about the scene, particularly Kim and Kris’ peculiar emotions and the completely blacked-out car windows. Low and behold, photos surfaced of Kim and Kris dressed in the same clothes, with the same make-up, leaving an LA studio two months after the Dubai trip and months after Kim filed for divorce! This led to speculation that the entire conversation was staged to paint the picture of Kim the deceived wife, unhappy in her marriage, and wondering what to do.
Since Reality Tea’s discovery was splashed all over the mainstream media, Kris’ attorney wants to investigate more deeply about when that scene was filmed and if it was indeed an authentic conversation! Kris filed for an annulment based on fraud – and the details behind this scene could help his case!
“Kris feels that if this is true and the whole conversation was faked, this would help prove that he got married under fraudulent circumstances. Yes, this did occur after the marriage, but this is one clear example that could help sway the judge to grant the divorce on the grounds of fraud,” an insider told RadarOnline.
In fact, Kris may have already known this episode–and others–contained fabricated scenes to paint him as the villain. Shortly before the Dubai episode aired, he tweeted: “I can’t wait for the truth to come out! People will be surprised or maybe they won’t. #FCC.”
The ex-couple could be facing a public divorce trial if a judge rules that Kris’ claims of fraud have validity. Something Kimmie is desperate to avoid! She is seeking private mediation, instead. Kris has publicly stated he believed his marriage was “real” and he went into it with honest intentions. Kim has also stated that, but she’s not exactly a credible person!
Actually, it’s some different good news. Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are expecting a baby girl according to Life & Style! “Kourtney was hoping for a girl,” a friend reveals. “She loves having a boy but thinks having a girl would be perfect so she can dress her up and show her the ropes in life.”
Kourtney is anxiously awaiting the family’s newest addition and loves being a mommy. “It feels amazing,” Kourtney said about being a mom. “It’s just so indescribable. You don’t get how good being a parent feels until it happens to you.”
Scott is thrilled about the prospect of having a daughter. “A girl would be a fantastic addition to our family,” he told the mag. Unfortunately, Kourtney’s rep denies the couple is having a girl, claiming, “Kourtney and Scott do not know yet what they are having.” They are probably waiting to sell a magazine story related to the big reveal!
Finally, Kris J is stooping to levels so low in her quest for money, I just didn’t know they existed! The mom of six is now endorsing a sexual enhancer! I’ll pause for the collective “ewwwww!” Kris recently announced her partnership with Zestra Essential Arousal Oils, where she will serve as the company’s spokesperson.
Zestra claims to enhance a woman’s sexual pleasure by heightening sensitivity. “She’s tried it and uses it. She wants to promote great sex,” a source tells Life & Style. Things I NEVER, EVER want to imagine: Kris and Bruce Jenner having sexy times! Indeed Kris is front and center on the company’s website. “I know sex is going to be good with Zestra, so why have sex without it?,” she wonders?
For those that are interested you can find Zestra over-the-counter and it’s “clinically proven” to enhance a woman’s pleasure. Kris J says so herself! Oh, and you can try it for free!

IS KRIS RIGHT TO QUESTION KIM AND KRIS J ABOUT THE TRUTHFULNESS OF THE DUBAI SCENES? THOUGHTS ON KOURTNEY’S BABY NEWS? ARE YOU GROSSED OUT BY KRIS’ NEW JOB?!
No word yet on why Alexia is out – perhaps it has to do with her 13-year-old son Frankie who suffered a very serious car accident last summer that left him hospitalized for months. Alexia had previously stated she did not wish to have Frankie’s recovery and rehabilitation filmed for the series. Bravo also confirmed production on the new season is set to begin this month.
The original story is below -
According to a new report, the Bravo network is gearing up to officially announce that the Real Housewives of Miami has been renewed for a second season!
This news is not much of a surprise as cast member Adriana De Mourapretty much confirmed it last November. The Hollywood Reporter states that Bravo is also cleaning house behind the scenes, as the network has called in the big guns–production company Purveyors of Pop–to produce the new season.
Purveyors of Pop is the same company behind Bravo’s more successful Atlanta, New Jersey, and New York Housewives franchises, as well as Bethenny Ever After.
THR also confirms what Adriana stated, which is that not all of the season 1 cast members will be coming back. While THR doesn’t confirm who will be getting the boot, Adriana has revealed both Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice will not be returning.
Indeed, a new report by the Miami Herald today states Bravo has already cast replacements for Larsa and Cristy! And one of those new housewives is reportedly model Joanna Krupa!
That name should ring a bell as Joanna, 32, appeared on the 9th season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. As for Joanna’s link to Miami, she is engaged to Mynt nightclub owner Romain Zago.
The second addition to the cast is said to be Lisa Hochstein, wife of plastic surgeon Dr. Lenny Hochstein of the short-lived Bravo version of Nip/Tuck called Miami Slice. Photos of Joanna and Lisa are below!
Bravo is said to be currently doing a test shoot with the new cast members. “They’re filming with these new women to see if it makes it more watchable, which compared to the first season, shouldn’t be that hard,” reveals a TV insider. Ouch! As for Bravo, they are not confirming the news simply stating: “No decision has been made on The Real Housewives of Miami.”
The Herald also adds that Mama Elsa Patton played a big role in Bravo’s decision to give Miami another chance. The first season of the series was not only lackluster, but it also tanked in ratings, too. Just how bad did the Miami housewives do, you ask? Let’s just say the now canceledReal Housewives of DC had better ratings!
I do wonder if this franchise can be salvaged – perhaps Bravo might want to consider adding more than two new housewives. Or better yet, I’m still waiting on my dream franchise aka The Real Housewives of Dallas… Sigh.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE TWO NEW ADDITIONS? DO YOU THINK THE SECOND SEASON WILL BE BETTER THAN THE FIRST? WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOUSEWIVES CITY?
