Did you grab your box of tissue? Prepared to shed a tear over the last episode of a season that has given you so much? Think about it…the bathtub porn, the bull-riding, the fashion shows (plural!), and the heartache. I am almost sad to see it all come to end…almost. The finale does not disappoint with all the Real Housewives of the OC (past and present!) coming together (and kicking some ass) at Vicki’s annual fall party.
“I realized Donn didn’t love me the way it takes to stay married…after I filed, I realized that.” As Vicki is getting ready for her party, she can’t stop the waterworks. Her poor make-up artist is applying Preparation H to her puffy eyes, while we learn that Vicki has filed for divorce and hasn’t spoken to Donn in over a week. He won’t return any of her calls or e-mails. From her previous statement, it almost sounds like she filed for divorce to get Donn’s attention and expected him to beg her not to leave him. I can’t blame ol’ Donn for not speaking to Vicki–he’s probably hurt and angry she did this while filming so it would be on the show!
Tamra and Eddie are back at the scene of the softcore porn, and shockingly there’s wine involved. Tamra is “shaking” because she’s nervous about seeing Jeana. If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume she was already planning a confrontation that could potentially ruin her biffle Vicki’s shindig. No, Tamra would never do anything like that, would she?

Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch Weekly magazine, this time around under the heading “I’m Over It.” And Teresa, 39, isn’t really over the show, but more over her first cousin Kathy Wakile, 45, whom she feels has turned on her.
“Kathy’s trash-talking me,” Teresa complains. “Really, she’s kind of two-faced and she’s taken it to a whole other level. Everyone who watches the show will eventually see that side of her.”
Teresa goes on to reveal that she and Kathy were more like sisters than cousins growing up, and continued to be close, until Kathy switched her allegiance to her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. “Kathy’s really tight with Melissa,” she notes.
Teresa adds that Kathy’s budding friendship with Melissa isn’t the only problem but that she also feels betrayed when Kathy allows her husband, Richie Wakile, to tease her. “He’s always on me, saying stupid stuff like, ‘How many times have you gone to the mall this week Teresa?’ He is very arrogant, and Kathy never sticks up for me.”
As for Kathy, she wrote in her Bravo blog recently: “[Richie] is a joker and likes to tease everyone. To quote my husband, he doesn’t give a ‘rat’s ass’ about how much Teresa spends.” Teresa goes on to add that she’s tired of being the punching bag for her relatives. “How can they treat me like this? I’m just over it!” she states. Seems like everyone else is the problem except for Teresa.
You can read more of Teresa’s interview in the current issue of In Touch Weekly.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the NJ Housewives. On the 4th episode this season titled, “Gobblefellas,” the wives’ Thanksgiving is stuffed with drama, resentment and regret. Divisions mark Turkey Day when Teresa presides over a “friendsgiving” feast for only Jacqueline, Caroline and their families. Conversely, the Gorgas host a separate get-together with the Wakiles.
It airs at 9/8c. A preview clip is below -

Following last week’s season 3 premiere of Basketball Wives which pretty much showed newbie Meeka Claxton, you know, sticking her nose into everyone’s business, she is now defending herself.
In a new interview, Meeka, who describes herself as a self-made real estate entrepreneur, does what all the other reality stars before her have done which is to of course blame editing.
When asked what she thought of the season premiere, Meeka states, “I mean, I watched it. And this is what I signed up for–it’s not me, the way I was portrayed, but it was entertaining.” She also says that she feels VH1 is portraying her falsely. “I was very surprised. A lot with Royce; it was all cut out that I said how nice she was, how bubbly she was. So, it’s funny how it started so innocently.”
So had Meeka seen the show before signing up for it? “I watched a few episodes before. But I was always in and out of New York and Atlanta, so I didn’t see every episode,” answered Meeka before going on to add that she doesn’t consider any of the ladies her friends. “I wouldn’t consider any of them friends. But I’m still getting to know them. It’s been such a short amount of time. And I didn’t go in there looking for friends. Its only been about two months, though.”
In other Basketball Wives news, the show continues to prove to be a ratings hit for the VH1 network. Last week’s premiere did pretty well, with over 1.8 million viewers tuning in. That is a 36% increase from last season’s premiere episode. As we reported, it appears VH1 is planning to extend the series with a new franchise in Los Angeles.
And finally, a new episode airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c. Suzie’s return to the circle upsets Royce, and sparks fly when Tami takes Meeka to task for playing both sides. A preview clip is below -

The 43-year-old mother of 2 posed for Playboy back in March of last year, and according to Kelly, her reasons for posing include teaching her daughters and others about a good body image, while also getting sweet revenge on her mean costars.
“I showed like 80 percent. A little boobie, a little butt, ankles,” Kelly told Popeater. “The pictures actually make me look thinner than I was at the time. I really ate a lot. I wanted to be my normal body shape. I wanted to look like myself. Everyone else was on a diet and I was like, ‘No! I want to be myself.’”
Kelly then goes on to add that she also posed to teach her two young daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10, about a healthy body image plus to “be sexy and have fun” later on in their lives. “I think some people were wondering … I have two kids, isn’t that bad? But I think no; I want my kids to be happy and healthy and later on in their lives, be sexy and have fun. I don’t want them to think that having an eating disorder is cool, because it’s not!”
Reason #3? To exact revenge on her costars includingBethenny Frankelwhom she believes bullied her on the RHONY. “I think the ladies were shocked by it,” revealed Kelly. “I think they thought, ‘We tried to take you down and now you are doing Playboy, what?! And now I have Playboy so they are like, ‘Wait a minute. This is not working!’”
Ah, nice to have the old cra-cra Kelly back.

And it should be as Vicki will file for divorce though in a very recent interview, she implied she would be open to a reconciliation with Donn. Also o`n the finale tonight titled “Girl Fight,” the season concludes with a bang as we finally get to see the altercation between Jeana and Tamra that Bravo has been teasing us with for months. Vicki comes home from her recent stint in the hospital, but feels well enough to host her annual fall party. At the party, Tamra doesn’t take kindly to what she believes is Jeana bad-mouthing her around Orange County, and all hell breaks loose. Watch a sneak peek below! The episode airs at 10/9c.
Watch What Happens Live - Vicki was the scheduled guest but it seems her appearance had to be rescheduled. Replacing Vicki will bePeggy Tanousand hockey player Sean Avery.
In other OC news, it’s no secret that (much like the ladies on the majority of the franchises), the OC Housewives are not the best of friends. These woman do cliques and cattiness better than most high school mean girls. Vicki Gunvalson is no stranger to the drama, especially this season, but could she be tiring of all the back-stabbing?
In a recent interview with E.Online, Vicki opens up about her future plans and her young co-stars. As for what’s next for Vicki, she has penned a book (because that’s what Housewives do when they don’t fancy themselves pops stars) entitled More Than a Housewife, and envisions herself on her own “Clean House” type show, helping women with clutter and hoarding issues.
However, Vicki’s most telling statements are aimed at her younger Orange County cohorts, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Vicki states the obvious, “Alexis and Gretchen are thirty—we’ve got nothing in common. Nothing.” She elaborates, “[I want to] have more substance behind who I am. I think this show has really gone into an area that—I don’t work out five hours a day, I don’t stand in front of a mirror, I don’t do all things that we’re [supposed to be doing].” Meow. If that’s not a dig (albeit a legitimate dig) at the two youngest, blondest housewives, I don’t know what is.
Apparently, the disconnect with the women makes filming difficult. “[T]hey don’t respect me and I don’t respect them, so it’s tough to film cohesively with that.”
Vicki also goes on the record with respect to Alexis’eating disorder admission. She exclaims, “Well, obviously she doesn’t eat! It was obvious, she has no body fat…It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know the girl’s got an eating disorder. I mean, really. I mean, she has got the most perfect body in the world, but you have got to eat in order to sustain life. I never knew it, but you can look at her to say, there’s definitely some eating issues.” I mean, Vicki makes a valid point, I mean, even if she doesn’t say it in the most sensitive manner, I mean.
Vicki reveals that she and Alexis get into it on the season’s reunion. However, dear readers, we have one more episode to watch before we get to see that.

It’s official, the fourth season of the Jersey Shore will premiere on August 4!
While the cast continues to film in the city of Florence, Italy, MTV made the official announcement this weekend. The press release promises the cast will “bring their trademark hilarity, fist-pumping and family dysfunction to the beautiful country” of Italy.
It gets even better as MTV has also green-lighted a fifth season. Yes, the network also announced that Season five will begin production in June. Once filming ends in Italy, the entire cast will return to the surf and sand of Seaside Heights, New Jersey right away to begin filming.
TMZ is however reporting that the cast is currently unaware of MTV’s plans to start filming season five right away. The cast was under the impression they would get a one month break and start filming in August. In fact, most of them are booked for club appearances all through July.
Sources say the cast will NOT be happy once they hear the news as they would rather get a break from filming and make money doing club appearances. The sources also add that the cast could decide to band together and stage a revolt. Oh the horror.
What is certain is that the 4th season will be filled with drama. As we reported, the poster couple for dysfunctional relationships, Ronnie and Sammi, are once again back together and fighting. Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fist fight which left Ronnie with bleeding knuckles and The Sitch with a shiner on his face. Plus Snookicrashed into a cop car though she was left unhurt. Should be a fun season!
