After ardently defending Mario during the Real Housewives Of New York reunion taping, which at the time was genuine, Ramona realized Mario had been reconnecting with mistress Kasey Dexter and decided enough was enough.
Ramona initially filed for divorce from Mario in January after he was outed as having an affair. Ramona and Mario then decided to give things another shot. “We were working very hard on our relationship and making great progress,” Ramona confessed, revealing that the couple had been in therapy for 15 weeks. That explains her counseling Aviva at the reunion!
With a heavy heart and eyes filled with tears… Million Dollar Listing LA star Josh Flagg‘s grandmother, Edith Flagg, passed away this morning at 94. Hands down, Edith was the star of Million Dollar Listing, and she will be missed.
Josh shared the unfortunate news via Instagram: “At 6am this morning, Edith Flagg, my grandmother, passed away. She was my best friend. I love you Grandma, my darling wonderful woman. You are my hero. I will see you again one day… It may be a while… But I promise we will be together again.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
It seems all is not well in Poison Paradise! Melissa Gorga may be stuck in that “disgusting” rental for a while.
Reports are emerging that the Gorgas financial problems are far worse than it appears and Joe Gorga is borrowing money from friends, family, and co-workers to keep his businesses and personal life afloat.
Joe reportedly sunk “millions” (of pennies?) into his document garbage business, and the couple is having a helluva time “selling” their house (aka lease-to-own disaster). Melissa was just forced to give up her Bentley after the $5,000 lease was too expensive. A source claims the couple was only leasing it for Real Housewives Of New Jersey, anyway!
Now they can knock one major thing off the wedding to-do list, because the ladies recently ventured to Vera Wang in New York City, along with Lauren’s matrons of honor, to find the perfect wedding gown and they shared snapshots along the way. Will this perhaps be featured on Manzo’d With Children too??
As the tail-end of the reunion, the drama was lackluster as all the mini-feuds were unscabbed and reargued part deux. At the center of most of the messes is Aviva Drescher. Among her many issues, she insists she was paying Carole Radziwill a compliment when she said, “At least I’m not 50 years old…” during their bookgate argument. Apparently in the convoluted twisted land of Avicious’ mind saying that someone is 50 and alone is a compliment, because she actually thought they were older. Ramona Singer, tact police, tut-tuts that even in a pinot-laced haze she knows that’s no compliment. That’s Aviva’s MO, to make a nasty comment and then claim the other person misconstrued it and she was actually trying to say xyz…
Avicious‘ other MO is to drop classicist epithets. Last night’s recipient was Heather Thomson. Aviva is appalled by Heather’s use of the phrase “mother f–ka” because Aviva says it sounds “gangster” and Heather did not grow up in the ghetto – nor has she been to prison. Apparently those are the only places people learn such language. Which confuses me because didn’t Aviva tell Kristen Taekman to “shut the F–k up“? Was Aviva in prison unbeknownst to us? She should be! Or perhaps Vassar was teaching a Ghetto Language Course? Needless to say Heather is offended by Aviva’s ignorance.
Last night’s Dance Moms starts off on a high note…for once! After succeeding in the group number against the Candy Apples, the girls gather in the studio. Gino is a distant memory and will go down in ALDC history as the kid who made perfect Maddie lose a duet. Poor kid. Maddie is absent because she’s in Los Angeles recreating her Chandelier video on Ellen. Have you seen it? It’s almost creepier than the actual video because Sia spends the entire time refusing to show her face and singing in a corner. Of course, that makes me love her and the song even more, and Maddie is quite the talent. If only Abby Lee Miller would stop trying to pit her against her friends…
Shockingly, Maddie is on the bottom of the pyramid for her absence, followed by Chloe for her fall. At least she gives her a tiny bit of credit for continuing on like a professional…a smidgen of credit if you will. Nia takes the spot after Chloe because, you know, Nia isn’t a ballerina as we’re reminded again, and again, and again. Newbie Sarah is the bottom of the next rung, much to Christ-y’s chagrin. MacKenzie is in second, although Abby calls her out from detracting from the number for being too short. Kendall is in the top spot (although, did you notice, there wasn’t a top of the pyramid?) for taking the piece so seriously.
