It’s a confrontations galore as the housewives hash things out with one another. At one point, Tamra Barney walks off the stage after getting into it with Slade Smileywho accuses her of being er let’s say ‘loose.’ “You are the lowest form of sh*t in the world,” says Tamra before storming off. Yes Slade was present at the reunion as he was the only guy invited to join the ladies on stage.
Vicki Gunvalson’s estranged husbandDonn Gunvalson also appears on the reunion via a taped clip. In the video, Donn is none too happy with Vicki. “I don’t think the way this went down was treated with class or dignity,” says Donn.
The biggest showdown seems to be between Tamra and Gretchen Rossi. Tamra slams Gretchen, accusing her once again of cheating on her dying fiance Jeff Beitzel. “You were sleeping with another guy while your fiancé was dying,” she says to Gretchen.
Gretchen retorts, “No I wasn’t Tamra. Stop talking out your *ss about everybody’s lives.”
Also, Alexis and Peggy get into it over Jim (Peggy used to date Jim), Vicki gets into it with Alexis, while Jeana Keough makes an appearance.
The reunion will air in two parts with part 1 airing on June 12. The preview clip is below

It also seems marriage might be on the horizon for Maci as the latest issue of OK! magazine reports she wants to marry Kyle.
“Maci would love to get married and thinks planning a wedding would be fun,” an insider close to Maci tells OK!. “She’s gotten a few brides magazines and says they’re addictive.” Maci, mother of 2-year-old son Bentley, is said to be open to having more kids. “She does want more babies when the time is right,” adds the insider.
As for Maci’s ex/baby daddy Ryan Edwards, he appears to be okay with Maci’s new relationship. “I’ve moved on, too, so it doesn’t bother me,” said Ryan. “She can be with whoever she wants.”
In the meantime, Maci is setting her sights on Dancing With The Stars, as in she badly wants to appear on the show. Sources tell UsWeekly she is really “hoping she’ll get asked to be on DWTS” and that “her people are pushing hard for it.”
Well if Bristol Palin can do it…

In other NYC news, the Kelly Bensimon most of us have come to know and love did a recent rambling video interview with In the Mixx in which she revealed her desire to marry and have another baby, while also revealing her jealousy towards Kim Kardashian.
First Kelly, 43, relayed what the psychic in Morocco told her. “The psychic in French tells me I think too much, and that I am going to get married and I am going to have a baby,” said Kelly adding, “This year I’m not going to have a baby but I’m going to be pregnant and I’m going to get married.” Kelly has two daughters with ex-husband Gilles Bensimon.
And it seems Kelly is ready to make that prediction come true. “I’m on it. I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing my work. I have to start,’ ” she said. “Yes, I want to get married and have a baby.”
Kelly also added that she finds hope in others, namely a certain Kim Kardashian, for making her dreams come true. “Just the other day we hear that Kim Kardashian is engaged,” Kelly said. “She is so unbelievable and I have so much respect for her. And to be honest with you I’m not that jealous of many people – I’m just not a jealous person – but the fact that she’s so happy and engaged and found true love [with Kris Humphries], I’m jealous. I am.” Kelly adds, “It’s amazing. I’m just so happy for her … She’s wanted it, and that’s just so exciting for her.” Allrighty then. A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S INTERVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
Reality Tea can now report that sisters Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo don’t appear to be on good terms. Whispers of a drift first began to arise as the two sisters have yet to be photographed together in months. In fact, the last picture we could find of them together dates back to last September.
The whispers grew louder as Caroline and the NJ Housewives hosted a premiere party at the Brownstone weeks ago, with Teresa hosting a separate party for herself. Dina chose to attend Teresa’s party. Dina also hosted an event for her Lady Bug charity on May 23 at The Brownstone (Dina’s husband Tommy Manzo is a co-owner with Caroline’s husband Albert Manzo), and while Teresa attended Dina’s event and was photographed with her, Caroline who was at the event with daughter Lauren, did not appear in any press photos (wireimages/gettyimages) with Dina.
And in Teresa’s Bravo blog this week, she alludes to Caroline having a feud with a sibling though she doesn’t mention Dina by name. Excerpts below -
“There are many parts of our lives that you don’t see. This episode you didn’t see my girls at all! You don’t see a lot of other people that are in all of our lives. You dont see Caroline’s other brothers and sisters and their family dynamic, for better or worse… Everyone keeps asking about my friendship with Caroline and Jacqueline. There is no feud. We all love each other. But as Caroline pointed out this week, we aren’t each other’s only friends. Jacqueline and I are very close, Dina and I are too. Caroline, while I’ve known her for years, is their big sister. I love her and I respect her, but she was never part of our group outside of family functions… I’m not the type of person to tell you how to live your life, because who am I to judge? I’m not perfect, and if I gave you advice on how to fix your problem when I have the same problem I can’t fix, it just doesn’t seem right.“
We did a little more digging and came across a recent post by the Reality Crack House blog this week in which a NJ Housewives insider reveals that the two sisters are indeed no longer on good terms. “They don’t speak, they haven’t for a while,” said the insider.
The final nail in the coffin? As of our last check yesterday (Wednesday) night, the two sisters are no longer following each other on twitter. Dina no longer follows Caroline, and a look at Caroline’s list of the 241 people she follows does not include her baby sister Dina. The two were in fact following each other at one point.
Teresa does seem to make a valid point (no hell has yet to freeze over) as it does appear a bit hypocritical for Caroline to be overly assertive in advising Teresa on her family feud with brother Joe Gorga, when she seems to have the same exact issue with her own younger sister. No word yet on what caused the rift between the two sisters.

UPDATE – Caroline tweeted the photo below of her and Dina from the Lady Bug event with the caption,”I hate viscous people. Sorry to disappoint.” No word yet on why she no longer follows Dina on twitter despite following Teresa, Jacqueline and even newbie Melissa.
Less than a week after the Mob Wives episode aired where Drita D’avanzo apologized to Karen Gravano for getting with her ex-boyfriend Lee and pretending Karen was crazy for feeling betrayed; Drita is taking her apology back! As both ladies now reveal they might never be friends again.
In fact, Drita says the only reason she apologized at all is: “I felt bad because she was crying. I’m a softy when it comes to anybody crying.” In a new article for Hollywood Life, Karen and Drita talk about their Made-For-TV faux-lationship and subsequent man drama; admitting they are no longer friends At. All. Or as the Mob would say they’re ¡finito!
Both Karen and Drita feel the reason their friendship fell apart is Lee trust. Drita claims that Karen calling it like it is her husband Lee “scum” was too much: “I can’t see being friends with her,” says Drita. “I just think that she crossed a line that I don’t think I really could come back from. In my heart, I don’t know if I could trust her.” Drita continues: “Friend, what friend? There’s no friendship once you do that,” referring to a previous episode when Karen came over to discuss why Drita started dating her ex. The “discussion” did not go well and resulted in a screaming fight between the women where Karen insulted Lee.
Karen agrees that Drita’s apology to her was not sincere and feels: “The bottom line is, Drita was my friend, for a friend to be able to put some things in the past, you have to close the doors and be able to build on trust. So if she couldn’t apologize to me and she’s going to keep making excuses, I can’t trust her.”
Karen also adds that she doesn’t care about scummy Lee (oh, really?): “For me, it was not about Lee, I could have licked it in the butt and walked past it quick. We could have been friends and it wouldn’t have been drawn out if she said sorry and said it sincerely without hitting me with timelines and excuses and reasons for why she did what she did. But she kept missing the point — she kept thinking I was getting at him.”
In other Mob Wives friend feuds, Renee Graziano is still upset about her brawl with fellow castmate Carla Facciolo (who I am guessing from the no comment has moved on).
In a new interview for the New York Post, Renee, who is disappointed the show has portrayed her truthfully as “a loud, foul-mouthed drama queen,” is still furious about the way things went down between her and Carla at her dinner party: “Why didn’t I crack her? I’m not violent. I don’t raise my hands ever. I would never hit somebody. But I should have broken her f- – -ing jaw.” Well, obviously those two are ¡finito! as well. The article also mentioned that Karen and Renee watched last Sunday’s episode together and “both are still fuming over their spats” with castmates Drita and Carla!
So whose side are you on? Drita’s? Karen’s? Renee’s? Or Carla’s? Who else cannot wait for a Mob Wives Reunion show!? Bring it on, Vh1!
Once again, the ending for the Bachelor/Bachelorette series has been revealed early on in the season.
Bachelor insider Reality Steve has done it again, revealing Ashley Hebert’s final four and most importantly her final pick! And it seems Ashley found love as she is engaged to one of the men from the show.
Though he had Brad Womack’s final two picks mixed up last season, Reality Steve assures us his spoilers are 100% accurate this season. We will find out on August 1 when ABC airs the finale.
Do not read any further if you do not want to know the ending. If you do, the spoilers are below!

Above is a photo of the two dancers kissing at the Moon nightclub at the Palms on Saturday. At first the photos (which have since been removed from the club’s website) flew under the radar as the kissing was actually taking place in the background of a pic.
However twitter user @DWTS_Gossipnoticed the action going on in the background of some of the pics. In other pics posted below, hotness Maksim can be seen holding Cheryl close while grabbing her hair.
Fast forward to today and Maksim and his reps are in damage control mode, denying he and Cheryl were kissing. According to the rep, Maksim “was merely whispering in a fan’s ear in a loud nightclub.” Albeit a fan who happened to be wearing the same exact dress as Cheryl with the same exact hair style.
But there is good reason for the damage control. Why you ask? Well Maksim is currently starring on the Ukraine version of The Bachelor (oddly enough the finale episode airs tonight in the country) and is under a strict contract which forbids him from, you know, making out in public with women who are not his finalists on the show.
This would be equivalent to Brad Womack getting photographed making out with a random woman the same week his final pick episode was scheduled to air on ABC. Fans of the show are said to be upset.
As for Maksim and Cheryl, the two have been romantically linked in the past as they reportedly briefly dated a few years back. The two deny there is any romance going on today so perhaps it was just an alcohol fueled make-out session. In the past, Maksim was previously engaged to DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff while Cheryl admitted earlier this year that she did have a fling with her former dance partner Chad Ochocinco.

Vicki lets it all out in the interview with E! but perhaps the most shocking part of the interview is when she reveals she is still open to a reconciliation with soon to be ex-husband Donn Gunvalson, despite being the one who filed for divorce back in October. This is all the more shocking as Vicki was reported to be in a new relationship with Brooks Ayers just weeks ago.
“I hurt Donn a lot by exposing all of the things that I did,” Vicki tells E! Online. “I want the best for Donn. If I’m it, then we’ll stay together. If I’m not it, then we won’t.”
Vicki also reveals she is cordial with Donn when asked about the status of their relationship today. “We’re very cordial. We hope we’re making the right decision. We’re not legally divorced yet. We’re in the process, we’re doing mediation,” says Vicki. “I love Don, I respect Don, I want the best for Don… Right now we’re just proceeding with the separation and that’s where we’re at right now.”
She goes on to elaborate on how the show contributed to her martial issues with Donn. “I hurt Donn a lot by exposing all of the things that I did, which I never meant to do. The unfortunate part is I started talking to Tamra [Barney] in confidence, and you tend to forget that there’s a microphone on and she’s like, what’s wrong with you, what’s wrong with you, what’s wrong with you? You’re not yourself. And I just started unloading. And the cameras caught it…Tamra and I don’t see each other that often…I really kind of felt it was a therapeutic thing to discuss it.”
And when it comes to the criticism that she put work before Donn, Vicki takes offense to that. “The misconception is that I’m putting work in front of family. The answer to that is no…I get a lot of heat for that. [People say], ‘If you would contribute your time to your family as much as you do your work, your family wouldn’t be dissolving.’ The answer to that is, ‘Wrong.’ It’s ‘no.’ You’re just seeing me saying I have to go to work because that’s when I’m filming, so that’s just a big misconception.”
She adds, “My family is my everything. If you don’t have your family intact, nothing else matters. There’s a lot of pressure doing a reality-TV show and being married and having a career and all of that. You’ve got to balance it, and some days I do better than others.”
This isn’t the first time Vicki has alluded to wanting to stay with Donn. Back in March, she stated that Donn wasn’t fighting for her. “It’s very hard — but the reality is, he’s not fighting for me, he’s not saying, ‘Babe I want you back.’ He’s saying ‘Babe, I wish you well,’” said Vicki back then.
While Vicki might be open to a reconciliation, it’s a mystery if Donn is as well. What is known is that the couple put their shared home on the market earlier this year. The home remains on the market today as the price was just slashed $200,000 a few days ago. The new asking price on the 5-bedroom, 5.25-bath, 5,400 square feet home is now $2,495,000.
