A day after news broke of her divorce filing, Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County is speaking out about her decision to walk away from her marriage.

Speaking exclusively to UsWeekly magazine, Vicki, 48, sheds a little light on why she filed for divorce from Donn Gunvalson, her husband of 16 years.

“We tried,” said Vicki. “It’s just too hard on both of us.” She added: “It is amicable and we want to keep this as private as possible.”

Vicki also posted the following on her facebook page – “Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be,” she wrote. “I would like to thank all of you for the outpouring of love and support that we have received.”

Also speaking out on Vicki’s divorce filing are her co-stars and her son. Tamra, Alexis and Michael had the following to say to RadarOnline -

Alexis Bellino – “This is totally unexpected, I really didn’t see it coming,” Alexis told Radar.“I’ve spent a great deal of time with them and they seemed very content with one another.” Alexis added – “Reality TV is hard on any marriage, and I will be praying for their family during this trying time.”

Tamra Barney – “I can’t speak for Vicki, but I spent some time with her in the past week or so and she’s a little stressed out and…clearly upset. But only she knows what’s best for her… It’s a difficult decision. I’m just beside myself because I love Donn and I love Vicki,” Tamra said. “My heart breaks for both of them and I truly wish them the best. I only wish they get through this without it being a giant circus. And only they know what’s going on.”

Michael Wolfsmith – “I think it’s for the best and they don’t really enjoy spending time with each other anymore and my mom’s always gone and traveling and Donn deserves someone who’s going to be at home and she deserves someone that’s going to support what she does,” said Michael. “My mom’s always gone… He’s home alone a lot, he’s just not happy and she’s not happy so whatever my mom wants to do I support.”

As we reported yesterday, the 6th season of the OC Housewives is currently filming so this divorce news will likely be on the show.

Following the merger of the older and younger teams, Tyrone Davis, a 42-year-old Fire Captain from Inglewood, California found himself the latest Survivor outcast to be eliminated.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Tyrone discusses the chicken controversy, why he was a threat, and whether or not his race played a role in his elimination or how he was perceived by his teammates. Excerpts from Tyrone’s interview below -

Let’s get the most important question out of the way. How much of that chicken did you actually eat?
Not a lot at all, seriously. I was the last to get a piece of chicken. I made sure everyone got some first and then I cleaned their bones when they were done. I was eating gristle. I was not Fred Flintstone eating a giant pterodactyl thigh. I was eating what other people said they were finished with and I made sure to ask if they were done.

Do you blame the chicken-eating incident for your ousting?
That was probably some of it. But I blame several things. One was the power thing. As a leader, you have a big target on your back. My strength: I was a threat because did well in all of the challenges. Holly’s switch: There was a generation gap. I think there was probably some racial motivation as well.

That requires further explanation.
Please don’t spin it that I was playing the race card, but things took place that weren’t shown on TV that lead me to believe that [race] was a [possible motivation] with some people, like the unfounded intimidation comment. I didn’t do anything to try to intimidate anyone. I wasn’t barking orders. Every time I spoke, I spoke with a soft tone. Some people have other issues that spilled into the game. That speaks to their insecurities. Racism is an insecurity, in my opinion, and it exists in America. I don’t think the vote was based solely on that. I’m not even saying that it was based largely on that. This is a social game. All those things – insecurities, biases, backgrounds – come into play and it was still on me to manage those things to my benefit. I didn’t.

Moving on to tonight’s episode of Survivor. The 6th episode of the season titled “Worst Case Scenario” will leave the cast surprised “following a shocking announcement, it’s every man for himself when the fight shipwrecked individual immunity. One of the leading intellectuals of the game points to two enemies and sets up a plan to overthrow one of them, along with an immunity idol at tribal council a most memorable season.”

The new episode airs tonight at 8/7c on CBS.

Just days after it was reported that Nene Leakes had joined the new cast of Celebrity Apprentice, a new report is now revealing Nene’s diva behavior on the set of the show.

According to TMZ, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has already earned a reputation for being the “difficult one” just nine days into filming.

The tipping point came this weekend after an incident over her makeup. Sources tell TMZ that Nene threw a temper tantrum because she hated the way her makeup was done for the show’s opening interviews. She then had the makeup artists start her makeup over again, except she still wasn’t satisfied.

Following two makeovers, Nene decided to take matters into her own hands, doing her makeup by herself.

In other news, the always outspoken NYC Housewife Bethenny Frankel is back at it yet again. Bethenny, who is mostly admired by her fans for her brutal honesty, took a jab at the Atlanta Housewives during her recent appearance on the Rachel Ray Show.

While attempting to make fun of her spotlight-loving dog Cookie, Bethenny said the following: “I think she has an agent. She literally hams it up for the cameras,” Bethenny said of her dog. “She’s like … one of the housewives of Atlanta. Every time the cameras are on she’s, like, doing something.”

Some are now saying Bethenny was comparing the Atlanta ladies to dogs, but knowing Bethenny, she more than likely didn’t mean it in that manner.

Following the huge success of season 2 of MTV’s Teen Mom, the NYPost is reporting that a third season is already in the works.

According to the Post, the show has averaged 2.8 million viewers per episode for MTV this season, while also bringing in young female viewers for the network. In fact, the finale episode last week brought in over 6 million viewers for MTV.

So what does this mean? It means we can expect a whole lot more from these popular teen mothers. MTV has reportedly already began filming season 3, and was on hand to film Amber Portwood and ex-fiance Gary Shirley’s recent visit to a Tennessee waterpark.

And though the all new season of 16 and Pregnant doesn’t kick off until Oct. 26, the MTV network has reportedly already handpicked a few of the girls from the upcoming season to appear on their own Teen Mom spinoff. “We’re always exploring new production ideas, but can’t confirm anything at this time,” said an MTV spokeswoman of the news.

Moving on to last night’s 2 hour reunion episode which brought us an emotional break-down by each of the teenage moms. Farrah Abraham broke down when discussing her mom’s abusive behavior towards her while her mom Debra Danielson also broke down telling her daughter she loved her in spite of everything that has taken place.

The biggest breakdown came from Amber, who revealed she also grew up witnessing abusive behavior by her mother. Dr. Drew Pinsky then explained to her that she was continuing the cycle of domestic violence by hitting Gary. Amber claimed she didn’t remember attacking Gary and cried as she admitted she’s is uncertain about what direction to go in her life.

Florence Henderson

Despite receiving the lowest score on Monday night’s Dancing With The Stars, “Teen Activist” Bristol Palin found herself safe from elimination last night.

Kyle Massey, who received the second lowest score, was also safe from elimination.  Florence Henderson? Not so lucky.  The 76-year-old Brady Bunch mom received the axe after the host announced she scored the lowest when votes and scores were combined.

Even Florence was a bit surprised by her elimination.  She told UsWeekly she “was a little surprised, but you know I’ve watched this show since it began, and I’ve seen absolutely shocking things happen on it, so somebody has to go.”

Florence however showed grace upon hearing the news on the show. “I have been in TV for over 50 years I have to say in all honesty this is one of the best produced shows I have ever been on,” she said. “I’ve loved this show since it began. I hope I’ve inspired people to get up off their behind and move and dance and have fun. I feel like I have grown as a person and a performer. I feel like a kid again!”

Meanwhile, Bristol, 20, was relieved to be dancing another week. “I’m just so thankful that they kept me another week and they see potential in me obviously,” she tells Us. “Hopefully I can prove that I can be a performer.”

TELL US – DID FLORENCE DESERVE TO GO HOME?

Time to recap the 3rd episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta titled ‘White Hot.’

This episode brought us fame monsters, threats to unborn babies and the magical appearance of Sheree’s eldest daughter. The episode starts out with Kim Gaga verbally abusing her assistant Sweetie, while also packing for her big live concert in front of the biggest gay dance party in the universe. Evidently, lip syncing to an auto-tuned backtrack takes a lot of preparation.

Nene takes her youngest son Brent out for a walk in the park. The two share a tender mother and son moment during which Nene brings up the topic of Bryson’s arrest. Nene states in her interview that she did not want to go into the arrest details with Brent due to his young age, but something tells me at age 11, Brent is well aware of all that is going on around him.

It seems Vicki Gunvalson‘s love tank is completely depleted.

TMZ is reporting today that the Real Housewives of OC star filed for divorce from husband of 16 years, Donn Gunvalson, on Monday.

According to the divorce documents, Vicki, 48, married Donn in 1994. The two have no children together while Vicki’s has two children from a previous marriage — Michael, 23, and Briana, 22.

This news doesn’t come as the biggest surprise as the Gunvalsons have been shown experiencing marital problems on the Bravo hit show, though they attempted to make things work by renewing their vows back in July of 2009.

Vicki was also photographed kissing a college student earlier this year, something she described as just fun and not cheating. Vicki’s co-star and BFF on the show, Tamra Barney, also left her husband Simon Barney back in January.

UPDATE – The 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC is currently filming so this will likely be on the show.

UPDATE #2 – Castmate Alexis Bellino spoke to RadarOnline stating she is surprised by the divorce news. “This is totally unexpected, I really didn’t see it coming,” Alexis told Radar.“I’ve spent a great deal of time with them and they seemed very content with one another.” Alexis added – “Reality TV is hard on any marriage, and I will be praying for their family during this trying time.”

Tonight marks the 4th season premiere of Bravo’s hit show – The Millionaire Matchmaker!

So what can we expect tonight? Well, we will get to see the matchmaker herself, Patti Stanger, as she sets up her office in New York City, following her move from Los Angeles. Also on the season opener, Patti will attempt to find perfect matches for Derek, 40, a proud “butt man,” and Bryce, 26, an uptight heiress who demands a Jewish version of George Clooney. In usual Patti fashion, she will have some harsh words for both bachelor(ettes).

When asked about the biggest difference between her LA and NYC clients, Patti states “L.A. millionaires are snotty on the looks, and New York millionaires are snotty on the intelligence.” As for her widely reported break-up with fiance Andy Friedman, it will not be featured on the show this season as taping had already ended before it happened. Excerpts from Patti’s interview with TV Squad below -

Chris Manzo, the son of Caroline Manzo from ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ is going to be on the second episode of this season. Is he actually a millionaire?
He is called the “M.I.T. Millionaire in training.”

That’s great. Is his brother Albie on the show, too?
They’re both on. They’re different in that Chris is a workaholic who has one day a week to date, and Albie only attracts the fame whores.

How about Danielle Staub from ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey?’ Would you set her up?
She’s already asked me.

Would you do it?
Well, you know, Caroline would probably have a hit out on me. I can’t go against Caroline. I’m in the Manzo family now. I’m a meek little Jew. I don’t hurt anyone. I said to Danielle, “I’m really sorry, but I’m friends with Caroline, so I can’t.” Caroline would be really mad at me.

Are Bill Brandes & Heidi Cornell, the two millionaires, still together?
They had a torrid two-year affair. They broke my club rules on the first date when they slept together.

Why isn’t Chelsea, the VP of matchmaking, on the show this season?
We no longer have her in the company. I can’t discuss it under advice from my lawyer.

And when it comes to her low success rate on the Bravo show, Patti claims her success rate in real life is 99% and that it’s lower on the show because Bravo controls the casting and not her. “My real members [Stanger runs a dating service called Millionaire's Club] are on the Forbes List, and they would never go on camera,” adds Patti. Riight.

In other news, when the show premieres tonight, one person who will be missing is Chelsea Autumn, who had appeared on the previous 3 seasons of the show as Patti’s VP of Matchmaking.

While Patti declined to comment on Chelsea’s departure in the above interview, Chelsea’s rep confirms to the TooFab website that she left the show following 8 years of “constant abuse, hard work with little credit and enough crazy crazy Stanger stories to fill a phone book,” adding that she was was ready to leave the “claws of Stanger.”

Chelsea’s story is believable as a leaked conversation of a raving Patti was leaked by TMZ months ago during which Patti could be heard going completely ballistic on a stylist. In reply to the leaked audio of Patti, Chelsea posted the following on her facebook – “Now everyone can see why I quit..lol”

Chelsea has now launched her own competing matchmaking company called Queen of Hearts.
