The fourth episode of theReal Housewives of Orange County aired last night as Tamra Sue continued her televised attempts at sticking it to her ex Simon, you know, just incase he missed that whole soft-core porn scene from last week. Also, Vicki continued to make Tamra pay for her crimes from last season, while Gretchen once again ponders marrying Slade. All that was missing was Gretchen bringing up the princess comment again and this episode would have been complete with issues that no longer need to be revisited.
We start out with Tamra in a limo as she prepares to pick up Vicki for their Cabo trip. Tamra calls beau Eddie on the phone, who is probably still hung over from having to down a bottle of wine in other to get into the bathtub with her last week. Tamra reveals she feels a bit nervous about the trip due to the negative things she said about Vicki last season. Bravo pans back to some of that footage, and while I think Tamra is undoubtedly a two faced snake, I do feel she said most of what she said about Vicki in other to appease to her then hubby Simon, who of course hated Vicki.

On the new episode titled “Ice Castles and Hassles,” Bethenny is on edge about her approaching 40th birthday. Meanwhile, she receives an invitation to appear on “Skating With the Stars.” A preview clip is below.
And in an interview with Extra, Bethenny Frankel reveals why she had a breakdown over her 40th birthday. “It’s a low grade breakdown. A mild, mild breakdown,” Bethenny confessed. “It wasn’t that I was turning 40, I just didn’t want to have a big party to celebrate. It’s not like I am one of those people that are like ‘yeah it’s your birthday.’ It’s not exactly me, so I reluctantly had a party and then broke down in the bathroom.”
In other Bethenny news, her former BFF and Real Housewives of NYCcostarJill Zarin continues to speak out against her. In a new interview with UsWeekly, Jill states the upcoming fourth season (premiering April 7) is her “favorite,” adding that Bethenny never really fit in with the NYC group.
“Living through it was the most enjoyable season,” said Jill. “I don’t think Bethenny ever really fit into the group.” Jill added, “She’s found herself on her own show — her own island. She self-admittedly doesn’t like people [besides her husband Jason Hoppy and daughter Bryn, 10 months.].” Yikes.
Meanwhile, Bethenny continues to make the press rounds to promote her latest book, “A Place of Yes.” While talking to the HollywoodLife, Bethenny revealed she always knew she would get her own reality show and used the NYC Housewives as an opportunity. “It was definitely something I knew was going to happen. I could see it,” said Bethenny adding that she tried to separate herself from the pack. “I separated in a sense that Season One — everybody was being frivolous. I was just trying to build a career and I was already working on all the projects.”
“Bravo is very much a network that is known for and relishes big drama, diamonds, glam, money and luxury,” Bethenny said. “I was not that. I had no money, I lived in 700 square-foot apartment. I had no idea what was going on in my life emotionally or career-wise. I separated in the sense that I wasn’t going to pretend I was somebody I wasn’t. I had to separate from the pack and be truthful.”
And while Bethenny makes it clear she has no regrets in doing Housewives, she does state that she doesn’t “miss a minute of it.” She then appeared to take a swipe at Bravo Housewives stating that in Bethenny Ever After, “no one is doing anything violent or outlandish for television.” She added, “I just love the natural way about this show because it’s true.”

According to TMZ, Jenelle, 19, was arrested over the weekend for assault. And yes, this is in relation to the brutal fight caught on tape in which Jenelle can be seen attacking and repeatedly punching Britany Truett.
Britany, age 19 and also a teen mom, had told TMZ on Friday that she did not want to press charges, and that she simply wanted everything to go away. Well, fast forward to this weekend, and it seems Britany had a change of heart. However, unfortunately for Britany, she was also arrested. We’re not sure as to why Britany, who was the clear victim in the attack and was defending herself, would be arrested as well.
Oak Island Police tells TMZ Jenelle was booked into Brunswick County Jail on Sunday night and was released shortly after posting $500 bond. Jenelle was charged with assault and “affray for fighting.” Both Jenelle and Britany are due back in court April 26.
Jenelle’s attorney tells TMZ, “Based on the information that I have received, I believe Jenelle was set up.” Right, because somebody set her up to repeatedly punch a woman on camera.
And it doesn’t end there as Jenelle’s boyfriend Kieffer Delp, 20, the cause of Jenelle and Britany’s fight, was also arrested last night. Evidently, cops had a warrant for Keiffer based on a cocaine charge from last year and as luck would have it, they found him at Jenelle’s house and arrested him too.

According to the Wetpaint site, the sisters stepped out a week ago to do some lunching in celebration of their sister Kathy Hilton’sbirthday.
Also present was Faye Resnick, as all signs continue to point to Faye being a new housewife on the show. This is the second time Kim has been photographed in public in the past 2 weeks. And just last week, a fan asked Kyle on twitter about the state of her relationship with Kim, in which she replied, “We’re good.” More photos of Kim and Kyle below.
A “source” close to the situation tells the site the two are taking steps to repair the breakdown in their marriage with the help of renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy.
According to Radar, Russell and Taylor will have sessions with Dr. Sophy together and separately. It gets even better as several of Taylor’s sessions with Dr. Sophy will be filmed for the upcoming season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, it seems Russell is having second thoughts about appearing on camera for the new season a la Jim Bellino.
“Russell hasn’t decided yet if he wants to participate on camera. Dr. Sophy has provided the couple with a great deal of guidance, and they genuinely do seem to be working through their issues,” says the source. “Russell comes across on camera as being very aloof, and reclusive, that just isn’t who he is. Russell wants to work to improve the marriage, it just isn’t Taylor, which is a very, very good sign for the future of their marriage.”
Another source close to the couple tells Radar that there is “a little stress in the marriage” and that they want to make their marriage work. It’s a wonder these two need therapy as they seem perfectly suited for one another.

But it was more just harming myself or running away. Like I had thoughts, I’m going to get the car today and just drive off and never come back.”
Peggy, 41, adds that she was able to overcome the depression with the help of holistic supplements. “I’m in a much better place now,” she said, “and feel almost pretty much back to normal. I have some bad day,s but for the most part I feel pretty much back to normal…It’s an ongoing struggle.”

The Real Housewives of New Jerseystar was arrested at the couple’s NJ home on Friday and has been charged with fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license.
If you recall, Joe’s license got suspended last year following a conviction for drunk driving, which then landed him 10 days in jail back in September after it was discovered he was driving on a suspended license.
Well according to authorities, Joe, 40, allegedly obtained a driver’s license from the Paterson branch of the Motor Vehicle Office using his brother’s identifying information in June 2010. He is said to have used his brother’s marriage license and birth certificate to obtain the forged license.
“Mr. Giudice was arrested at his home earlier today as the result of an investigation this office did with assistance from the state Motor Vehicle Office,” said Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay W. Mc Cann yesterday.
Joe has been charged with wrongfully using the ID of another person and for forgery. He faces more than 10 years in state prison if found guilty. His bail is set at $50,000 with no 10 percent option. No word yet on whether or not Joe has been released.
Back in January, Joe was ordered to pay $260,000 to his former business partner for forgery, and then just a month ago, he and Caroline Manzo’s sons were detained in the Dominican Republic for a bar brawl. In addition to that, the Giudices are still required to stand trial on July 14 & 15, 2011 for charges relating to bankruptcy fraud.
A report that came out last year also stated Joe’s license has been suspended a total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years due to numerous driving sanctions.
UPDATE – Teresa Giudice tweeted away last night about like nothing was wrong. “Hanging out with my honey at Mt Airy Casino, just finished dinner now we are going to checkout the scene… We had dinner at Le Sorelle in Mt Airy Casino in Pocono Resort excellent u should try it,” tweeted Teresa on Friday night.
